He did the same with the cup after supper saying, "This cup is the new covenant written in my blood, blood poured out for you." Luke 22:20 (The Message) When we as Christians eat the bread & drink the wine, we remind Him (God) that as His children we have rights & privileges within His Family. Communion is our reminder that we are also under covenant to walk as His children. When we are in covenant with Yahweh, we are the head & not the tail. We are sons not servants. Blessings chase us, we don't chase them. The Lord blesses those who bless us and curses those who curse us. We are in covenant with Him that everything we touch multiplies. This is our inheritance and each time we take communion these promises come back to our remembrance & strengthens our faith in His provision for us. Our covenant was struck at the Cross but it legally becomes active when we partake of the elements (bread & wine). When we take communion, we are proclaiming loudly & clearly," What then shall we say to these things? if God is for us , who can be against us?" Romans 8:31 ... YES AND AMEN!!!
IN WHOM WE HAVE REDEMPTION THROUGH HIS BLOOD, EVEN THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS. COLOSSIANS 1:14... Did you know that the blood of a baby in the womb never comes in contact with the mother and that it is contributed by the male seed, not by the female egg? This was a divine plan of God when He designed men & women. God knew He would need to send a Savior into the world to redeem them!!! We all need a SAVIOR and only the blood of Jesus can cleanse us and make us white as snow!!! Redeem means to pay a price to ransom someone. Our redemption could only be bought with the perfect, pure blood of Jesus. The blood of Jesus came from the Holy Spirit when He overshadowed Mary, therefore the blood of Jesus was completely pure. His blood was the only blood that could pay for our sins because it came directly from God and was never contaminated with sin. It was the perfect payment and sacrifice for our forgiveness!!!The blood of Christ is still cleansing and washing us today as much as it did two t
