While I believe Yehweh is already judging the nations and those who have fallen away from the faith...His promises are STILL "Yes and Amen" to those who overcome! Now is NOT the time to compromise, not the time for convenience & comfort and a false sense of security and materialism. It is the right time now to overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony! These seven promises are filled with the fullness of GOD! 1. Rev.2:7 "Eat of the tree of life" Paradise and communion are part of this promise! 2. Rev.2:17 "Eat of the hidden manna of the life of God" and receive white stone of acceptance with a new name" also speaks of communion and fellowship! 3.Rev. 2:26 "power over the nations and rule with Yeshua" speaks of rod of iron, authority with consequence! 4.Rev. 3:4 "be clothed in white garments" speaks of purity and unity...we get new clothes! 5. Rev.3:5 "hear the Lord confess their names as His own before Pappa and the angelic realm" speaks of His love and affection for His bride! 6. Rev. 3:21 "sit with Messiah in His throne and manifest the glory forever" again this speaks of fellowship and communion! 7. Rev. 4:1 "I looked, and there was a door open in heaven, And first heard a voice and then saw One sitting on a throne"... If you can hear His voice, you can see His face!!! He wants intimacy and fellowship with us even more than we want intimacy & fellowship with Him! Communion is His idea!!! MUST BE IMPORTANT...Just a thought.
In John 6:48-51 it reads in The Passion , "I AM the true Bread of Life. Your ancestors ate manna in the desert and died. But standing here before you is the true Bread that comes out of heaven, and when you eat this Bread you will never die. I alone am this living Bread that has come to you from heaven. Eat this Bread and you will live forever. The living Bread I give is my body, which I will offer as a sacrifice so that all may live." There is a difference between eternal life and living forever. The only reason I would die is if there is a record of sin in my DNA. I do not need to die, none of us do. But we need to undergo transformation by applying the body and blood of Jesus. The body and blood of Jesus carry the record of the DNA of God. We can age and die, or we can take the body and blood of Jesus within ourselves, and live forever!. Jesus says in John 6:58, "I am not like the bread your ancestors ate and later died. I am the living Bread that comes from heaven.
