The Lord Jesus Christ, being God Almighty's Word of TRUTH declared: All Power is given unto Me in heaven and earth. What the Lord may have been lacking in power as the Son of Man/Adam, was rightly restored to Him as the obedient Word and resurrected Son of His Father Yahweh God Almighty. For unto the Son, the Almighty says: Thy Throne, O God, is for ever and ever: A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Thy kingdom.  All things in heaven and earth are obedient to the Word of the Son of God. Then why do you doubt, you of little faith.  If anyone that is baptized does not believe in the Power of the Creator of the Universe, then it is impossible for them to teach the baptized to observe all that the TRUTH of God has Commanded them to teach?  If you Love Me then keep My Commandments

At the Passover feast of Unleavened Bread, the Lord of our Salvation, inaugurated His Father's Word in Communion with His Spirit of Grace: This IS My Body given for you! This IS My Blood of the New Covenant that IS shed for many for the remission of sin.!  And  the Almighty said of His Son: For Thou Lord, in the beginning has laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the works of Thy Hands.  They shall perish, but Thou shall remain, and Thy years shall not fail. (See Hebrews 1 verse 1 thru 14.) Are you yet in unbelief; and teach others of your unbelief ?

Let's seek to clarify the eyesight of our hearts with the salve of God's Spirit.  Hopefully, we can enlarge with clarity, the facts of what is in accordance with the spiritual meaning of Scripture: 

The physician, Luke, writes to the most excellent Theophilus, of the Gospel Good News of the Salvation of man through the Righteous Man Christ Jesus, and again Luke will further address Theophilus in his letter called the Book of Acts. (See Luke 1 verse 1 thru 4, and Acts 1 verse 1 thru 5.) It is thought that in addressing Theophilus, as the, "most excellent", that Theophilus, perhaps of Greek nationality, may have been a Roman official, and also a recent catechumen, through his hearing of the Word of God.  It would appear, because of his influential position, that Theophilus needed a fuller written account of the earthly ministries of Jesus the Christ of God, and those of His Ecclesia (church), who were being empowered with the Love of God through God's Holy Spirit.

Beginning Resolution 

1. To begin with, we might better understand the reasons for some of the early success of the church, for it came about because of their faithful obedience. In the Book of Acts, Luke writes of the Apostle Peter's exhortations at Pentecost: For Peter calls for the repentance of all of those who were in the hearing of his voice, and then for all of the hearers to be baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ, for the remission of sin, and then you shall receive the Gift of the Holy Spirit. (See Acts 2 verse 38 thru 41.) The following scripture from Luke's book of Acts, chapter 2 verse 42, should be considered to be all conclusive for the edification of the Body of Christ Jesus.  In other words, this Scripture should not be parceled out to be individual occurrences, being segregated with a comma after each conjunction of the English word, "and", but should be maintained as a continuous spiritual thought.  So then, let us consider the English transliteration of verse 42 as it is written in the English versions: And they continued "steadfastly" in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of [unleavened] bread, and in prayers.  When viewing verse 42 in Greek: ἦσαν δὲ προσκαρτεροῦντες τῇ διδαχῇ τῶν ἀποστόλων  καὶ  τῇ κοινωνίᾳ  καὶ  τῇ κλάσει τοῦ ἄρτου  καὶ  ταῖς προσευχαῖς;  there are two primary things to be noted in this Scripture. 

First consideration, the English word 'steadfastly', transliterated from the Greek word προσκαρτερέω, signifies that the whole essence of the passage, written in Greek is conceived to be one continuous and progressive thought. The one steadfast thought is to be maintained within the minds of the members of the Body of Christ.  There are not 4 individual thoughts, but one steadfast , all conclusive thought.  The conjoined sentence was to be maintained all together without commas, as one essence, and to be maintained as the apostle's doctrine for the enrichment of the Ecclesia in its worshipful service to God.  Indeed: The hour comes and now is that the true worshipers, shall worship the Father IN Spirit and TRUTH: ---  God is Spirit and they that worship Him MUST worship Him in Spirit and TRUTH. (See John 4 verse 22 thru 24.)

Secondly, the Greek conjunction καὶ translated in English as, "and", would amplify the same unity of steadfast thought, for the Greek conjunction καὶ G2532, according to Strong's Concordance is a primary particle, having a copulative, and sometimes also a cumulative force.  Therefore, the Scripture in Acts 2 verse 42 is a copulative or a conjoined sentence, arriving at one cumulative doctrinal statement from the One Holy Spirit of God.   

Luke, having gained an understanding and belief in Jesus Christ through eyewitnesses and other ministers of the Word of God, wrote his first treatise (Gospel) to Theophilus, who, from all indications was a babe in the Lord. That you might know the certainty of those things, wherein you have been instructed. (See Luke 1 verse 1 thru 4.)  Perhaps it would not have made any difference if Theophilus was a new believing Gentile or New believing Jew, for Luke's message gave consideration to a new child of God, having only a beginning understanding of what he had heard.  Luke, a friend and follower of Paul, would have been careful, in his vernacular with a babe in Christ.  As an example, we follow Luke when he later writes to Theophilus in what is called, the Book of Acts, "and in the breaking of bread".  If the Jews were having a problem with the Lord's spoken Words of Life that totally exists within His Person, then what might have been the thoughts of the new believing Theophilus, if he would have heard this Word of the TRUTH spoken:  Amen, Amen, I say to you: Except you eat the flesh of the Son of Man, and drink His Blood, you have no Life in you( John 6 verse 53.)

In consideration of this Holy Matter of Communion with the eating of the Body and drinking of the LIFE Blood of Jesus Christ, what would have been your thoughts?  And what are they now?  Perhaps, because of Jewish thought concerning sins of 'Blood Guiltiness' it was expanded to the drinking of the Blood of Jesus Christ.  Therefore, many of His followers when they had heard this, said: "This is a hard saying, who can hear it?" (See John 6 verse 60 thru 67.)  Luke may have sanitized his message in acts to clothe the message for the babe in the Lord; and because of ignorance, so did the uninformed English translators of the King James Version:  And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in the breaking of bread, and in prayers(See Acts 2 verse 41 thru 42.) In this passage, there is no mention of the New Covenant Blood of Jesus Christ, given for the
remission of the confessed sins of the many.  Now consider, in Luke's writing that the translated Greek word 'kei {kahee}' is the English word, 'and'.  Kei is a Greek conjunction in the Strong's Concordance that speaks of cohesiveness of one complete thought, but in this English translation of Scripture, the  conjunction, 'and', is erroneously conveying divisive qualities, for the one thought is segregated by several commas that in the mind of man, would present 3 if not 4 distinctive thoughts.

1.Doctrine of the Apostles.
2. Fellowship.
3. Breaking of Bread.
4. Prayers.

Whose Doctrinal Word is it in the first place?  The Doctrine of the apostles, is the Doctrine of Jesus Christ, and the Doctrine of Jesus Christ is His Holy Father's Doctrine: For Christ's Holy Father, Yahweh God Almighty sent His Divine Word into this world to be His Only Begotten Son, so that through faith in Jesus/Yeshua, a people might be saved and sanctified in the Truth of God's Salvation Word.  (See again "My Doctrine is not Mine".) The Lord Jesus Christ, was the True Unleavened Bread of Heaven, for at the behest of His Father Yahweh God, the Word of God came down to earth, to become the incarnate Son of Man/Adam.  At the Feast of Unleavened Bread, Jesus Christ the Son of Adam/Man, having given thanks to His Father God, then broke the unleavened bread, and gave it to those of His remaining 11 disciples, and said to them:  Take and eat: This is My Body given for you. Before hand, Judas Iscariot had left the dinner to betray the Lord, and he did not partake of the Unleavened Bread that the Lord of Salvation gave to His disciples.

The Koinonia Greek, as well as Hebrew script, did not have any separating punctuation, for the written script would be read as one statement.  Witness the following paraphrased scripture for its cohesiveness, for it makes for a better understanding of the Word of God: And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine of fellowship in the breaking of bread with prayers.  Luke's treatise, conveys the TRUTH of God's WORD:  But, who can hear and bear it.  Does it make a difference in the Faith of Christ, if the Unleavened Bread of Heaven has spoken the Substance of God's TRUTH?  For they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat the Meat (Christ's nourishment in His Body and Blood) with gladness and singleness of heat, praising God, and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily, such as should be saved. (Acts 2 verse 46 thru 47.)

Christ Jesus is Risen from the dead

2. At the opened tomb of the risen Christ of God, the women followers of Christ, when encountering the angel of God, began to remember the Words of Jesus Christ. Then the women, Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and the other women that were with them, upon returning from the sepulcher, told the apostles of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. In John's Gospel account, we find that in the 19th chapter verse 25, that Mary, the wife of Cleopas, being also the sister of the Lord's mother, was one of the women that was present at the crucifixion death of Jesus/Yeshua Messiah. The gathering of men scoffed at the words of the returning women, but then Peter and John ran to the opened sepulcher and found only grave clothing, and not the Body of Christ Jesus.

After this, the Scriptures continues to speak of two of the followers that were present within the company of disciples, male and female: And behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus.  During their 7 mile journey home, the two were having a conversation between them concerning the last days' events.  Then a Stranger joins them and asks about their conversation. Cleopas, the man answers: Are you only a stranger in Jerusalem and do not know of the things that have come to pass in Jerusalem these past days. Upon hearing the tale of events; Then He (the Strange) said to them:
“How foolish you are, and slow to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Did not the Messiah have to suffer these things and then enter His glory?” The Stranger continues to enlighten the husband and wife of the prophetic works of the Christ of God.  And now being late in the day, then the two invited the Stranger to enter into their abode and to eat with them. (See Luke 24 verse 10 thru 17.)

And it came to pass when the Stranger sat to eat with them, He took the bread and blessed and broke it, and He gave the Bread to them.  In that moment, the eyes of the two disciples were opened, for they were Communing with the risen Christ of God.  Previously these two people, among others, were gathered together with the eleven apostles where they no doubt had heard discussions of his death, and the accounts of the Passover and the Passover Supper that the Lord Jesus conducted.  Then scripture shows the two disciples in that same hour returned to Jerusalem, where they would tell the 11 apostles and other disciples, of the Stranger, and how they knew Him in the breaking of the [Unleavened] Bread. 

Question: How did the two disciples know for sure that the Stranger Who appeared to them was Jesus/Yeshua the Messiah? Mind you; this was near or after the close of the 3rd day of the 7 day Feast of Unleavened Bread.  The answer should appear within our minds that Jesus the Christ of God, and the True Bread of Heaven, would have first given Thanks to His Father God, and when He had broken the Unleavened Bread, the Son of Man would have then given the Unleavened Bread to the two disciples, and would have said: Take and eat this is My Body given for you. And then their eyes were opened and they knew Him, and Jesus vanished out of their sight.  When the two disciples understood the fullness of what had taken place they retuned to Jerusalem to report the event to the apostles and other disciples. 

And [then] while they were speaking, (of their encounter with the Bread of Life), The resurrected Jesus Himself stood in the midst of them, and said: Peace be unto you
.  The disciples feared that they were seeing a ghost.  But then Jesus, in His resurrected Body, preceded to open the disciples understanding of the suffering of God's Promised Messiah, and He said to them: Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and rise from the dead the third day:  And that repentance with
remission of sins should be preached in His Name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.  You are My witnesses of these things.  And, behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you: But wait in the city of Jerusalem, until you be endued with Power from on High(See Luke 24 verse 13 thru 53.)

The Sabbath Day of Rest

3. Unfortunately, man kind, with their unredeemed flesh have changed the time of rest authorized by the Almighty God, and also the 10 spiritual Commandments that reveals spiritual sin.  The spurious changes to the Will of God were made by individualistic religious minds that have set aside the WAY and the TRUTH of the Word of God to accommodate their  own vanity upon which they stand. 

From Yahweh God's Eternal perspective Stand, a thousand years is as a day in the Lord and a day is as a thousand years.  From the beginning of Elohim's creation of time, there has been spiritually noted to be 6 work days in Elohim's week of His creation.  In the 6 days of His creation, Elohim, created all things in His universe, and He rested from His universal creation on His 7th day.  The Week of the Eternal God, is an Eternal Week, and in reality is more than man's perception of 6 X 24 hour days.  At the Command of the Almighty God, the 7th day of the 7 day week originally became for mankind, the Sabbath day of rest.  Now,  the Lord God did not change the Sabbath day of rest to the 1st day of the week because of Christ's Resurrection, that occurred on the 1st morning of the work week, we now call Sunday. But Holy, Holy, Holy Yahweh Lord God Almighty, declares His Word: Keep the Sabbath day to sanctify it (you make it holy) (you set it apart) as The Lord God has Commanded you. (See Exodus 5 verse 8 thru 10, with Deuteronomy 5 verse 13.)

The Lord's Day is His Sabbath day of rest, for the Creator of the universe rested on the seventh day, which is the 7th day of the week. However, of great significance, there are special Sabbath's of the Lord.  The Lord established His three perpetual Feasts that each would have within them Special Sabbath's that are called High Holy Days.  The Feast of Unleavened Bread would begin on Nisan the 15th, and would have 2 designated High Holy Sabbaths, The Feast of Pentecost would have 1 High Holy Sabbath, while in the month of Tishrei there would  be an additional 3 High Holy Sabbaths.   The Lord Himself has set aside these special High Holy Sabbaths, and they are to be perpetually celebrated.  (Leviticus 23:38-39.)

I AM the Lord thy God: Thou shall not have any gods before Me. Thou shall not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or is in the earth beneath, or is in the waters underneath the earth.  Thou shall not bow down to  them nor serve them; for I AM the jealous God.

The Command to not make any graven image of God, can be understood, but the Likeness of The Almighty God, is not understood to be His Spirit of Holiness. 
God is Spirit and those who worship Him must worship Him IN Spirit and TRUTH.

Feast of Unleavened Bread

On the fifteenth day of that month the Lord’s Festival of Unleavened Bread begins; for seven days you must eat bread made without yeast. 7 On the first day hold a Sacred Assembly and do no regular work. 8 For seven days present a food offering to the Lord. And on the seventh day hold a Sacred Assembly and do no regular work. (Leviticus 23:7-8.)


On that same day you are to proclaim a Sacred Assembly and do no regular work. This is to be a lasting ordinance for the generations to come, wherever you live. (Leviticus 23:21.)

Sabbath Feasts of Tishrei

Also on the 10th day of the Seventh Month shall be a Holy Convocation unto you and you shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord. (Leviticus 23:27.)

Speak unto the children of Israel saying: The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days unto the Lord. On the first day shall be a Sacred Assembly: You shall do no servile work on that day. Seven days you shall offer an offering made of fire unto the Lord: On the eighth day shall be a Holy Convocation unto you. (Leviticus 23:34-36.)

There is no where in scripture where God changes His Sabbath Day of Rest from the 7th day of the week to the 1st day of the week.  The Scriptures in Acts 20 verse 6 and 7 apparently is the principle Scriptures that justifies man's prerogative to change God's 7th day of rest, to the 1st day when God began His work of crestion.  In religious pride, the flesh of mankind can argue over their interpretation of God's Word of TRUTH that does not change.  When Scripture is read without preconceived opinions, then the reader will find that Paul always honored the 7th day of the week as the Sabbath of the Lord.  Paul also understood the High Holy Days within the 3 set aside Feast of Holy Yahweh God Almighty.  The Feast of Unleavened Bread contained 7 days within the Feast, with the 1st Day of the Feast being a High Holy Sabbath unto the Lord and the 7th day of the Feast was also a High Holy Sabbath unto the Lord God Almighty.  

These (disciples) going before (us), tarried for us at Troas. And we sailed away from Philippi after the days of Unleavened Bread, and came unto them to Troas in five days; where we abode seven days. And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight. (Acts 20:5-7.)

Paul, when he arrived in Troas planned on staying 7 days.  We submit for the reader's consideraton that the first day of the 7 day stay of Paul and his companions, occurred on the first day of the 7 day Feast of Unleavened Bread, which was a High Sabbath day that fell on the 2nd day of the week (Tuesday).  The 7th day of Paul's 7 day retreat, fell on the last day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, and would have occurred on the 1st day of the week. ( a Sunday for us.)  The first day of the week, for the Jew, began at sundown approximately 6:00 PM on the Julian Calendar of Sunday.  Again this is the last day, the 7th day of God's High Sabbath that occurs on the 7th day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread.  During that last day of the Feast, and about 12:00 AM, a young lad named Eutychus fell from the 3rd loft to the ground floor. He is thought to be dead, but apparently is revived by Paul, and Paul says: "Trouble not yourselves, for his life is still in him".  After the breaking of the Unleavened Bread, Paul continued with the Word that lasted until the morning broke and ended the High Sabbath day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread.  If this was the case then the day of Paul's departure had come, and Paul decided to walk to Assos where he would catch up with his entourage that had previously left by ship.  Paul's next day after the High Sabbath Day would have been after 6:oo AM on the 2nd day (Monday) of that week.  After sailing for three days, Paul made it known that if it were possible he intended to be in Jerusalem for Pentecost/Shavout.

The English word 'after' being transliterated from the Greek word 'meta', presents a dilemma in the logical mathematical interpretation of this Scripture.  The 5 days of Paul's travel are specified in scripture: Then the 7 days of Paul's stay in Troas are also specified and the number 7 coincide with the 7 days that would have occurred in the afore mentioned Feast of Unleavened Bread. The Greek word 'meta' interpreted falsely in English, as the one word 'after', contradicts the above premise, for the Greek word 'meta' could have any one of the following meanings that are used in other scripture verses, such as,  "hereafter (4 times), afterward (4 times), against (4 times), misc (32 times)". Minus the miscellaneous, insert the three following lines in place of "after the days of Unleavened Bread".

1. "hereafter the days of Unleavened Bread."

2. "afterward the days of Unleavened Bread."

3. "against the days of Unleavened Bread."

Any one of the three is more suitable than the present day KHV interpretation.

The Lord's Prayer

4. Satan, the leader of rebellion against the Creator, has, from the beginning of Adam's treason against Elohim, continued to insert his confusion into the mind of rebellious man.  Here we will consider with contemplation, the Lord's Prayer that Jesus, the Christ of God taught to His people.  The Lord's Prayer presents several spiritual points that are infinitely more important than the earthly food provisions that the esteemed pulpit theologians promote to the people of the pews.  The Words of the Christ of God, were twisted by theologian, and in their confusion they continuously parrot the same error to the itching ears of us parrots of the pews.  If lies and errors are continuously repeated as true, then the error becomes ingrained in the mind of man, and the lie becomes the traditional teaching within the religious institutions and their many independent off shoots.

The Lord Jesus Christ, the True Bread of Heaven, teaches us to pray to our Holy Heavenly Father God in the following manner:

Our Father Who Art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name; Thy Kingdom come; Thy Will be done on earth as it is done in heaven.  Give us this day our Daily Bread, and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil (the evil one).  For thine is the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory for ever. Amen.

The Lord Jesus Christ, being the Word of God, intimately knows His Eternal Father, and as the Word of God, He also knows of His Father's purpose in sending Him to the earth.  The Word of God, would become the genetic Son of the first Adam, and as the Last Adam, Yeshua/Jesus Christ, the Man of God's Salvation would die for the sin of the world.  Therefore, Jesus/Yeshua haMashiach is well able to compose the teaching Prayer with His Understanding Authority as the WORD of God, Incarnate.

The Lord of Creation, begins His teaching Prayer, in acknowledging that the Eternal God is our Father, and His Name is to be reverenced in His Holiness.  The Prayer continues with: Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done on earth as it is done in heaven. The Will of God is that there would be peace on earth, as there is peace in the heavens.  The Kingdom of God has not yet come to the earth, because of mankind's willful sinfulness that only brings suffering to all of mankind. The wickedness of Satan and mankind will run its course, and then the suffering from sin and death will cease. The Eternal God, Who dwells in Eternity, has created free flowing time, and sees from the timelessness of Eternity, the beginning and ending of time.  Time is only relative to free thinking sinful man kind, and the Eternal God will modify the flow of time with His Word of Power, and bring forth His Kingdom of Righteousness through His Son of Righteousness. Then Yahweh's Will, will be done on earth, even as it is done within the unknowable expanse of the heavens.

God's Will is very patient with man kind, and in His patience He waits on man to respond to His Provisions IN Jesus Christ. Give us this day our Daily Bread.  "This day" refers to any one of the 7 days of the week.  Jesus Christ is our Daily Bread, from the 1st day through out the week unto 7th and last day of the week, and without the Bread of Life to sustain us, all of mankind will perish. Wherefore, our Daily Bread is available by faith, and reverenced in any one of the days of the week.  Witness the Word of God with understanding:
One man esteems one day above another: another (man) esteems every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind. He that regards the day, regards it unto the Lord; and he that regards not the day, to the Lord he does not regard it. He that eats, eats to the Lord, for he gives God thanks; and he that eats not, to the Lord he eats not, and gives God thanks. (Romans 14 verse 5 thru 6.)
The Lord's Prayer, is our Prayer in Thanksgiving to the Almighty Yahweh Father God, for His giving His Word of Life to our Daily Thanksgiving Bread that is the Living Christ Jesus.
Our Thanksgiving petition should be that the Will of Yahweh Father God be done first in our lives, so that God's Kingdom Life would be seen in His people saved by His Grace.  Christ Jesus is our Daily Bread  and He is the Only Mediator between our sin's willfulness in our flesh, and the Holy Righteousness of God Almighty. With our repentance and confession of the sin's of our idolatrous flesh, then Father God will provide our Daily Bread,  that will nourish our being in His Spirit of LIFE.   But be aware of this disclaimer: Our Lord Jesus Christ says at the end of His teaching prayer of Faith:

For if you forgive men their trespasses, your Heavenly Father will also forgive you: However if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses
. (Read all of the Lord's prayer.)

If we believe that Holy Yahweh God's Will is TRUTH, then Holy Yahweh Father God will provide the Spiritual Sustenance IN the Unleavened Bread of Heaven, that we would break in faith during our Worshipful Thanksgiving to Father Yahweh God Almighty.  Then with our forgiveness of others, God will cleanse and absolve us of our confessed sins through Jesus Christ's Blood of the New Covenant, given by Yahweh God's One Holy Spirit of Grace. God knows beforehand of the basic needs for our flesh of our beings, but is far more desirous to see to the Life of our souls and spirits,  Jesus Christ says: Seek first the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness, (this day) then all these things shall be added unto you. Therefore, take no thoughts for tomorrow's evil for tomorrow will surely bring its own evil:  But this very day has more than enough evil. (See Matthew 6 verse 32 thru 34.)

Vanity, vanity, all the days of man's life on this earth are full of vanity and vexation of spirit. We desire what we think will give us pleasure, and when we have it, the pleasure is fleeting and soon passes away. But man's vanity seemingly never ceases to want what they want when they want it.
is necessary to sustain our natural lives for today, and Therefore if we pray to God, then it is for our own sake, for if nothing is impossible with God, then let Him magically give us what we want when we want it. 

The writer of Ecclesiastes says the end of it all is: Fear God and keep His Word, for this is the whole duty of man.  For God will bring every work into judgment along with every secret thing, whether it be good or whether it be evil.
Such is our sole interpretation of the Lord's Prayer. 

But Jesus introduces us to a manner of prayer that begins its focus on His Holy Father, the Almighty God, for He dwells in a High and Holy Place, and also speaks of His Holy Name that is defiled in the vanity of man kind. Actually the Holy Name of the Creator of all things is not given a mention in the interpreted writings of the Gospel of His Son, Jesus Christ.  We are called, by Jesus, to pray that the Will of His Father would be done on earth as it is done in Heaven.  The will of sin is done on the earth, but not the Holy Will of Yahweh, the Lord God Almighty.  Therefore, the petition of faith is that Holy Father Yahweh God would give us our needful daily Bread of His Son Jesus Christ, the Bread of Life Who came down from His Father's Kingdom.  For it was the Will of His Father God that His Word would come down to earth to become for us the Son of Man and the expiation of the will of sin within our human lives. Now with our faith in the Will of Almighty God, we eat of the Bread of Life and also seek remission for the sins of our self centered flesh through His sacrificial Blood of Life.   However, the expiation of confessed sin is dependent upon us forgiving those who trespass against our own person.

 Sin Always Breeds Corruption.

5.Paul, in his first letter to the Corinthians, uses Israel as an example of what not to do.   addresses sin's pollution in the body of the believer, of the damming ways of  idolatry and warns the fledgling church of the extreme sanctions concerning their misunderstanding of Communion with Holy God Almighty.   If we are going to gather together as a family within Father God's Holy House, then we had better be prepared in our mind's spirit to receive His provisions, or else we are just having a religious meeting of divided hearts within a community building made of the sands of the earth.

Please follow fully the Scriptures in chapter 10 of Corinthians, beginning with "Moreover Brethren".

Moreover, brethren, I would not that you should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; And were all baptized unto Moses in the Cloud and in the Sea; And did all eat the same spiritual food; And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them and that Rock was Christ. But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness. (Read all 1st Corinthian 10 verse 1 thru 13.)

When following the sequential progression of Paul's, warnings to the Corinthian church, then Paul continues to show the Corinthian church that the only Way of escaping carnal sin's judgment within idolatrous self, is through God's Communion New Covenant Grace in the Holy Life giving Blood of Jesus Christ. 

Wherefore, let him that thinks he stands, take heed lest he fall. There has been no temptation overtaken you, except such is common to man: But God is Faithful Who will not permit you to be tempted above that which you are able, but with the temptation He has provided 'a' Way of escape that you may be able to bear it. (1st Corinthians 10 verse  10 thru 14.)

Note immediately that there is not 'a way', of escape, specifically designed for an individual, as if God will provide many ways of escaping sin's enticements.  Holy, Holy, Holy Yahweh Lord God Almighty has provided only One Way of escape, for the WORD of God, that is Christ Jesus makes it amply clear that Christ Jesus IS the Way.  The article 'a' or any other article is completely absent in the Greek Text.  The translators in the King James Version wrongly inserted the English article 'a' in the script that produces a gross heresy.  If an article of English speech would be inserted for clarity of understanding then perhaps the article 'the' might be appropriate, as in 'The' Way of escape that you may be able to bear it.  The TRUTH of the Living Word of Christ Jesus. declares the imperative:  I AM The Way, The Truth, and The Life of man: No one comes to the Father but by Me.  Jesus Christ, the Messiah of God condemned the sin of the world in His Flesh, therefore we are without excuse in following an other way other than Jesus Christ, The Only Way of escape from sin's tentacles.

Sinful mankind, with the willing help of the deceiver, changes the meaning the Word of God, while the WORD of Holy, Holy, Holy Yahweh, Lord God Almighty does not change.  His Infinite Word is Eternally Holy.  While the believer is on earth, the trial of Godly faith will continue to test the Godly resolve of the believer.  All who dismiss the Communion Body and Blood of Jesus Christ as symbolic, are heretics, for in their ignorance, they will labor in finding there own way out of sin's entanglements.   Where then is your Godly faith in 'the' only Way of escape in Christ Jesus?  We can present the TRUTH but, all heretics need to repent.

When received with thanksgiving, the Living Blood of Jesus Christ maintains Holy God Almighty's relationship with the repentant believers of fallen mankind: "I speak as to wise men: Judge you what I say. The cup of blessing, which we bless, is this not our Communion in the Blood of Jesus Christ?  The Bread which we break, is it not the Communion of the Body of Christ?" (1st Corinthians 10 verse 15 thru 16.) The answer in Godly faith should be a resounding "Oh Yes", "Amen", but unfortunately the answer for many is muddled in the sensual questioning mind of man that may say yeah, with a qualified but,---Jesus didn't really mean exactly what He said.  So then, with the conceited wisdom of the day's vain leaders, they presume to bless the cup with a token blessing, but only as an innocuous symbol of no consequence.  Ah, but there are consequences for the teachers of unbelief, for they fail in providing the people of the pews, the totality of the Covenant Word of Holy Yahweh Lord God Almighty.

Paul continues to speak to wise men.

6. It should be noted that Chapter eleven 1st Corinthians is a demarcated intersection of two thoughts: one of praise and the other that disavows praise. Paul continues in his correcting letter to the Corinthian Church, and writes in 1st Corinthian 11 verse 2: Now I praise you, brethren, that you remember me in all things, and (but) (that you) keep (hold fast) the Ordinances, as I delivered them to you. First of all the word 'and' in English is not logically correct.  The Greek word is 'kai', a contraction that also has a meaning of 'but'.  The 'but' is an intended rebuttal to show that the Corinthian Church is not holding fast to Paul's instructions in the Lord's Ordinances as is evident when he declares to them: For first of all, when you come together (G4905) in the church/ecclesia, I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it. For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you.  I praise you not, for when you come together, it is not for the better but for the worse. The Ecclesia (church of Corinth) are in gross error in their understanding of the Word of the Lord, and Paul will attempt to bring correction to those who have ears to hear wisdom. Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits. (Romans 12 verse 16)

Therefore, when you come together into one place, this is not to eat the Lord's Supper. (1st Corinthians 11 verse 18 thru 20.) Paul is saying to the Corinthian assembly: You are coming together, and even so, you are not eating the Lord's Supper. Therefore the Ecclesia is not holding fast to the Ordinance, as previously directed by Paul, but are individually eating and drinking of their own provisions that they brought with them, while ignoring those who brought nothing. What!  Have you not houses to eat and drink in, or despise you the Ecclesia of God and shame them that have nothing?

Man cannot casually worship the Eternal Almighty God in the natural flesh, but the ecclesia (the called out ones) are to come together to worship God Almighty within His Holy Spirit of TRUTH.  The underscored gold 'come together' provides a list of all the English versions of the Bible that reveals the main purpose of the church's gathering together.  When investigated, any one of the versions, from beginning to the end, would confirm that every time the church/ecclesia 'comes together', it is a Holy time to come to the Almighty's Table of Grace.  His Table is only for the sealed for Salvation,  where they remember Christ's death for the sin of the World, and to joyfully participate in Faith, God's Communion Celebration in the resurrected Body of the Savior of mankind, and Whose members we are.  The gathered 'called out ones', are to fully participate at His Table of Grace, with the eating and drinking of the Eternal Lord God's Provision's of His Grace.  God's Holy One, Jesus the Christ of Almighty God, through His Holy Spirit of TRUTH, provides within His New Covenant of Grace, the Lord's Life Giving Blood with Its Serum cleansing Water. The remission of sin's, begins with the Ecclesia's own confessed sins of their unruly flesh that demands death, but all defilement is cleansed in the Water of Life.

The Lord gives His Own Provisions for the Life of the Ecclesia, through God's One Holy Spirit of TRUTH.  Although not physically seen, the Lord Yeshua/Jesus, the WORD and the Maker of the universe, provides in His Body and Live Giving Blood the TRUE SUBSTANCE of the WORD of Faith, that gives LIFE to the believer IN God's WORD.

Paul continues in his letter to the Corinthians, and clarifies his instructions for the Lord's Ordinance: 23 For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, that the Lord Jesus, the same night in which he was betrayed, took bread:

The night that the Lord was betrayed was the evening of Nisan the 15th, the first day of the 7 day Feast of Unleavened Bread.

24 And when He had given thanks, He broke it (the unleavened bread), and said, Take, eat: this is My Body, which is broken for you: Do this in Remembrance of Me.

25 After the same manner also , (as when he had given thanks), He took the cup, when He had supped, saying, this cup is the New Testament (Covenant) in My Blood: this do you, as oft as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.

26 For as often as you eat this Bread, and drink of this Cup, you do show the Lord's death till He come.  When you click on " as often as " in this Scripture then you will understand that it does not mean, an arbitrary 'often' as the protesting English interpreters conjured up from the previous 'as oft as ' interpreted from the Greek word hosakis {hos-ak'-is} Strong's G3740 .  According to Strong's G3702 and other concordances there is no suitable English interpretation for the Greek Word 'an'.

27 Wherefore whosoever shall eat this Bread, and drink this Cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the Body and Blood of the Lord.

28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that Bread, and drink of that Cup.

29 For he that eats and drinks unworthily, eats and drinks damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's Body.

30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.

31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.

32 But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.

33 Wherefore, my brethren, when you come together to eat (of the Lord's Supper), tarry  (wait) one for another.

34 And if any man hunger, let him eat at home; that you do not come together unto condemnation. And the rest will I set in order when I come. (See 1st Corinthians 11 verse 1 thru 34.)

God is our Provider

7. God is our Provider in all things, and He knows what our needs are in this life: (See Matthew 6 verse 30 thru 34.) But, Holy Yahweh, through His Spirit of Grace, provides the essential and necessary Sustenance that sustains the believer with their new LIFE that is IN Christ Jesus.  Jesus the Word of God says:  I AM that Bread of Life.  I AM the Living Bread which came down from heaven: If any man eat of this Bread, he shall live for ever: The Bread that I will give, IS My Flesh, which I will give for the Life of the world. (See John 6 verse 48 thru 51.) Without living faith IN Christ Jesus, then the world is perishing right before our eyes, and if our hearts remain fixed on the cares of this world, then we also will perish.  Jesus says to His disciples: Deny yourselves (of your selfish desires of this world) and take up your cross daily and follow Me. (Matthew 16 verse 24.)

All of us are grossly forgetful in the daily denial of ourselves, but God is Faithful to His New Covenant Word IN Christ Jesus, and will He will be our Sustainer in our journey through this earthly life.  His Covenant Provisions IN His Son have not changed, but are daily available for us when we stumble and fall out of the WAY of Life.  When the lust of sin has taken our eyes off of Jesus, and we travel out of The WAY, and stumble over sin and fall down, then the sin that has created pain in our flesh requires the cleansing and debridement of the flesh by the Spirit of God.  You may run a race on your own strength for awhile, but it is foolish to run Life's distance race with patience without the needful direction corrections that point to the straight WAY of Christ.  The WAY of Life points us to Christ Jesus' Life sustaining nourishments IN His Body and His Life Giving Blood, administered by God's Holy Spirit of TRUTH.  The Almighty God is patiently waiting for us, for He has provided The WAY that ends our journey into the Kingdom of His Love.  It is very good that God's Covenant renewal is available for us even every day so that we can run the race with confidence.  All along the WAY of Christ, we can be nourished by God's Spirit in His Unleavened Bread of Heaven, Who is born the Son of Man.  For we will not be thirsty, for we can drink of the Son of Man's Life sustaining Covenant Blood that is a wellspring of the Water of Life from the Spirit of Life.  For we being many are one Bread, and one Body: for we are all partakers of that one Bread. (See 1st Corinthians 10 verse 15 thru 17.)

Those who are born of the One Spirit of the Eternal Almighty Lord God, would, with their maturation through the Grace of God, understand the irrevocable TRUTH of the Words of the Lord's Christ.   The Life Blood, with the Soul of Jesus, the Son of Man, was sacrificed on the cross, and LIFE poured out of His Body for the sin's of the world.  God's Holy Sacrifice of His Incarnate Holy Word, baring the Loving and Obedient Son of Man, is sufficient for man kind for all time.  It would take the Sacrifice of the Perfect Love of the Son of Adam, born of the seed of Ishshah/Woman, to satisfy God's Spirit of Holiness.  Faith in God's all sufficient Sacrifice of His Holy Son, justifies the believer IN Jesus Christ.  Nevertheless, those disciples that are baptized into the New Covenant of Yahweh God, still need the cleansing Communion Water and LIFE Blood of God's Holy Spirit, to wash their flesh of its own self idolatry.  It is through the ONE Spirit of God that the believers would be of the One Body of Christ, being perfected in the Love of God.  (See The Soul and the Life.) If we are IN Christ Jesus then we Live IN His Righteousness, and not that of our own fallible flesh. Paul confirms: And be found in Christ, not having my own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through The Faith of Christ, the Righteousness which is of God by faith: (Philippians 3 verse 9.) For Almighty God has made Jesus Christ to be sin for us, although Christ did no sin; so that we might be made the Righteousness of God IN Christ Jesus. (See 2nd Corinthians 5 verse 21.)

We see in the early church that the first born children of the Ecclesia of Jerusalem, were meeting in their homes, and being of like salvation mind, they all together were participating in the Doctrine, or teachings of the Apostles of Christ Jesus; and as such, were having the fullness of fellowship (Koinonia, Communion) in the Word of the Lord.  The Apostles, no doubt were following the Word of the Messiah, and were preaching repentance from sin's entanglements, and of Salvation's Grace (remission of sin) through Messiah Yeshuah (Christ Jesus). 

Those who were baptized into the cleansing Water of God's Holy Spirit for past sins, were now permitted to participate in the breaking and eating of the unleavened matzo bread, being the Word sanctified Body of Christ Jesus.  With the Ecclesia's expressed thanksgiving to God, with their spiritual blessing enjoined in the Words of the Lord, then the bread and wine were each Sanctified, that is set apart by the Holy Spirit, to be the Body and Life Life giving Blood of Jesus Christ.  (See 1st Corinthian 10 verse 16 thru 17.) With the eating of the Bread of Life, and the drinking of the Cup of Blessing, then the Ecclesia, being in unity with the Holy Spirit of God, could now boldly come into the holiest place of the throne room of God, presenting their intercessory prayers and supplications, before Yahweh God, the Almighty. (See Hebrews 10 verse 19 thru 23.)

God's Communion Table, with His bountiful Sustenance, should be exercised in sequential order, every time the Church (Ecclesia) would gather together, in the Spirit and Truth of the Word of God.  Jesus, the Christ of God made the following provocative statements to the Jewry of that day, and His WORD continues to resonate in TRUTH for now and forever, in spite of the unbelief of the people who say, they are of faith. I AM the Bread of Life:  He that eats of this Bread shall live forever.  And now again John 6 verse 53 declares the TRUTH: Amen, Amen, I say to you: Except you eat the Flesh of the Son of Man, and drink His Blood, you have no Life in you; And then verse 56, it is written: He that eats of My flesh, and drinks My Blood, dwells IN Me and I IN him.

We can do nothing without the Lord Jesus Christ, Who Wills to strengthen His Ecclesia in His Spirit of TRUTH, but our unbelief in His WORD prevents His Blessings.  If you will excuse the words "pattern or tradition", then the renewing Life of Christ is precisely portrayed by the TRUTH.  Without the Bread of Life, then how long will the carnal Christian truly dwell in Holy God's Spirit of Life: And without receiving, in true repentance, the Sanctifying Bread of Life, then how long will God's Holy Spirit of Life indwell the once marked for Salvation Christian?
