While in study on love and what it is, I came across a passage of scripture that contained revelation not just about love but communion as well! Read Romans 13:8-14 in The Passion Translation... In this scripture (v-11) it says it's urgent and strategic for us to live in the light! So wake up, time is fleeting and our full salvation is at hand. Full salvation translates as complete wholeness in the Greek, the same as the last book in the bible...Revelation. This scripture (v-12) also says darkness is dissolving as a new day dawns, our destiny! Darkness can be described as "old clothes," as we put on "new clothes" of light in this new day! This new day will find us surrounded by light as we lose the old and live in the new! What a trade! Verse 14 says We fully immerse ourselves INTO the Lord Jesus, the Anointed One where even our DNA is changed and we have a new identity. This is a definition of what communion (bread and wine) does for us, changes us from the inside out, even the frequency of our DNA! In verse 8 we see to don't "owe" anything to anyone, but to love one another. By learning to love you fulfill the law. It is interesting the Aramaic word for "owe" is khob and the word for love is khab. So, love is light! In the Greek there are three different words for love, Agape, Phileo and Eros. Agape is the highest, purest, God kind of love. It's supernatural love, unconditional, undeserved, compassionate that continues to flow even when it is not returned. Phileo is the kind of love friends and family have. We get Philadelphia , brotherly love, from the root word of phileo. and thirdly we get eros, which doesn't have to mean love, but refers to sexual desire and giving sexual pleasure. Love doesn't just generate light it is light! In these days, the only protection we have is the light of love. It will blind your enemies, so that they will be changed...like Paul on the road to Damascus! Keep on loving, it's the right thing to do.
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.
