26:26. And as they were eating, Jesus took
bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it
to the disciples and said, "Take, eat; this is My body."
Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it
to them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you.
For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed
for many for the remission of sins.
But I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the
vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in My

us now, it means die spiritually).

Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks this
cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and
blood of the Lord.
let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink
of the cup.
11:29 For he
who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to
himself, not discerning the Lord's body.
For this reason many are weak and sick
among you, and many sleep.
if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged.
are three possibilities in eating and drinking Holy Communion as
Eating and drinking Holy Communion in
an unworthy manner, that is preserving
the sins, having no guilty felling, even defying.
consequence is keep living in sins (sins become permanent), becoming
weak and dying physically, moreover dying spiritually.
Communion with many reasons
= rejecting the sacrifice of Christ.
consequence is outside the sacrifice of Christ there is no
salvation, there is only perdition.
The true way is
eating and drinking Holy Communion by judging
Judging ourselves = punishing sins,
especially by the work of the Word.
result is drawing God's blessing up to eternal life.
1:15a His feet were like fine
brass, as if refined in a furnace,
your heavens which are over your head shall be bronze,
and the earth which is under you shall be iron.

God blesses us.

WHAT must be judged?
All sinful deeds, including
also sinful thoughts
must be reconciled.
5:10 For we must all appear before the
judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done
in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.
All things we do not do to the others who

not giving or visiting the others.
25:45 Then He will answer them, saying,
'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it

will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into
We must give
attention to the others physically and spiritually. People who need
to be helped from sins must be brought to Jesus.
All these things will be judged at the white
throne (the throne of Christ's judgment) to be punished in the
hell, and there will be no more opportunity to correct ourselves.
20:11. Then I saw a great white
throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the
heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them.
And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before
God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is
the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according
to their works, by the things which were written in the books.
20:14 Then Death and
Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second

the work of the true teaching Work and Holy Communion.
It equals to perseverance in Bible
Study Service and Holy Communion.

from sins, because if we have already arrived at the white throne,
there will be no more opportunity to correct ourselves and we will
only be punished in the hell.

sword of the true teaching Word pierces or points our sins, we have
to realize, regret, until confess our sins to God (vertical) and the

in the Book of Life.
RESULTS ARE AS FOLLOWS:

will be judged.

Righteousness fruit = only
taking God's side (the true teaching Word).
Goodness fruit = starting
with not harming the others, until repaying evil with goodness.
Until we will be appeared as the light of
the World, and there is no darkness at all.
12:1. Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a
woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on
her head a garland of twelve stars.
fruits of light are able to defeat the
darkness of basket (the darkness of
antichrist, financial matters, eating-drinking sins) and

great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place,
where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from
the presence of the serpent.
that evacuation wilderness, we will be cared directly by God, that
is by the bread of teaching Word and Holy Communion.
in Bible Study Service and Holy Communion is an exercise for living
in evacuation, by living from the Word and Holy Communion.
the other side, if we retreat from perseverance, it equals to
Anointing the feet of Jesus for the
preparation of His burial.

Why do we have to enter the
ministry of building body of Christ?
is such that we do not enter the building body of Babel

will be perished forever.
Being active in ministry equals to
perseverance in General Service.
Falling down at His feet = worshiping
11:32 Then, when Mary came where Jesus was,
and saw Him, she fell down at His feet, saying to Him, "Lord, if
You had been here, my brother would not have died."

dangerous illness, accidents, etc. They equal to the death threat
physically, also spiritually (sins) which bring us to everlasting
perdition in the hell.
aim is such that we can fall down and
worship God, confess that we are only clay. It means as follows:
I am not worthy.
am nobody, and only proper to be trampled down (to be slandered,
I can do nothing. I only believe and fully
surrender to God's mercy.
We must fall down at the feet of Jesus more,
especially by perseverance in Prayer
Maybe our tears are insulted by
the others, but God sees it.
RESULT: Faith + God's mercy =

Martha who hardened
her heart (being hypocrite, hiding decay) must be renewed to become
who did not believe, must be renewed to become
must judge dishonesty (being hypocrite, hiding decay) and unbelief
(being doubtful) in front of God!
Physical miracle also
happens, impossible things become possible.
Until once there will be the highest miracle,
that is all of us will be renewed as perfect as God and we will be
lifted in the glorious clouds, and death cannot touch us again.
