Matthew 26:17-25 -->about eating Passover.
Matthew 26:26-29 -->about eating Holy Communion.
So, there is transition from Passover to Holy Communion.
The last Passover was the first Holy Communion.The rules of eating Passover/Holy Communionare as follows
:Exodus 12:912:9. 'Do not eat it raw, nor boiled at all with water, but roasted in fire -- its head with its legs and its entrails.
Eating Holy Communion= experiencing the working of teaching Word in the annointing of Holy Spirit, the Word that is sharper than any two-edged sword, to purify our life,starting from heart and mind which are the source of flesh lust, that we experience heavenly satisfacion
- Do not eat it raw.
Raw meat= fire of flesh lust that brings us to fall into sins until the peak of sin.
23:29. "Is not My word like a fire?" says the LORD, "And like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?
Raw meat must be roasted in positive fire, that is true teaching Word.
So, eating Holy Communion must be with purification done by hard teaching Word.
- Do not boil at all with water.
The water refers to freshness of the world.
Positive water is living water of Holy Spirit.
So, eating Holy Communion must be in annointing of Holy Spirit that we experience satisfaction in Holy Spirit.
. Mark 7:21-237:21. "For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
7:22. thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness.
7:23. "All these evil things come from within and defile a man."
Foolish = canno
t be advised, disobedient. Foolish life who canno
t be advised by the
adulteries, fornications, etc, because foolishness is the finality. Foolish life has already been
close to B
abel.Matthew 5:8 5:8. Blessed are the pure in heart, For they shall see God.
Purified life shall be able to see God through worshipping God, seeing God's countenance that was like the sun shining in its strength
= light of mercy, light of the glory of God
.Revelation 1:161:16. He had in His right hand seven stars, out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword, and His countenance was like the sun shining in its strength.The results of seeing God's countenanceare as follows
- We become strong and of good courage.
16:8. I have set the LORD always before me; Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved.
Being strong and of good couragemeans as follows:
- We keep on holding fast to true teaching Word with all the risks.
- We are not desperate, disappointed, hoping others, but trustinginGod.
- We do not do sin although having chance, advantage, threat, etc.
Joshua was being strong and of good courage since being ordered to spy on Canaan, he hold to the Word. The result was Joshua was used to lead Israel to enter Canaan.
Now, strong and of good courage life will be used in the revival of Holy Spirit in the last rain.
When we are weak and unsteady against temptation, sin, etc, let us see Jesus' face only.
If we are not used in the building of the body of Christ, we are surely used in the building of the body of babel.
- Experiencing winning power.
2 Chronicles 20:12
20:12. "O our God, will You not judge them? For we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are upon You."
When we have no power, we are helpless, and have no way out, it's the most beautiful time to see God's countenancethatwas like the sun shining in its strength.
Do not look for our own way, because the way outside the Word is just dead end and perdition.
2 Chronicles 20:17,24
20:17. 'You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the LORD, who is with you, O Judah and Jerusalem!' Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them, for the LORD is with you."
20:24. So when Judah came to a place overlooking the wilderness, they looked toward the multitude; and there were their dead bodies, fallen on the earth. No one had escaped.
When we look upon God's face, we do not need to fight, because God fights for us dan gives winning power. All problems will be dead bodies only.
All impossible problems will finish. Even, everything that has already become dead bodies in our lives (failure and destruction), will be risen by God.
- Experiencing renewal of lifefrom flesh men (mortar pot) to spiritual men (golden pot) like Jesus.
If we are not renewed, mortar will be broken. But, if we are changed to become gold, we will not be broken although we are burned.
The renewal of heart= the renewal of faceas follows:
- Scowl like Hanna because of marriage problem and children will be changed to beaming face. We only look upon God's face and we surely beam and experience happiness of Heaven.
- Pale face like woman who was caught doingadultery, those are fear and anxiety because of sin, future, etc. This face will be changed to beaming face and happyface.
- Ugly face like Peter, that is sin which has already become attitude like satan. This face will be changed to beaming face and glorious face. On the cross, Jesus has already been willing His face became ugly, that we who haveugly face can be changed to glorious one.
Bad action and word will be stumbling block that will be cast like Babel and perish forever.
Let bad behaviour be changed into good one, good action, good word. And God will also make beautiful future, everything good, until make us as His bride, to enter into the marriage supper of the Lamb of God on the glorious clouds.
God blesses us.
