Sunday Evening Evangelistic Message #152
TEXT: 1 Corinthians 11:23-31
Daniel Whyte III shares a special message explaining three wrong views of the Lord's Supper (Communion) and the correct, Biblical view of the Lord's Supper. The three wrong views of the Lord's Supper are: the Roman Catholic view (transubstantiation), the Lutheran view (consubstantiation), and the Reformed (Calvinist) view. The correct, biblical view is the Memorial view.

Jesus Institutes the Lord’s Supper
King James Version (KJV)
26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.
27 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;
28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
About the Communion Service As it Was Celebrated by the Earliest Christians (From "The Story of Christianity: Volume 1" by Justo L. Gonzalez)
We are told in the book of Acts that from the very beginning the early church had the custom of gathering on the first day of the week for the breaking of bread -- the Eucharist or Lord's Supper. The reason for gathering on the first day of the week was that this was the day of the resurrection of the Lord. Therefore, the main purpose of this service of worship was not to call the faithful to repentance, or to make them aware of the magnitude of their sins, but rather to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus and the promises of which that resurrection was the seal. For this reason, Acts describes those gatherings as happy occasions: they "ate their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having the goodwill of all the people." Those early communion services did not focus their attention on the events of Good Friday, but rather on those of Easter. A new reality had dawned, and Christians gathered to celebrate that dawning and to be participants in it.
From that time, and throughout most of its history, the Christian church has seen in communion its normal and highest act of worship. Only after the Protestant Reformation in the sixteenth century -- and in many cases much later -- did it become common practice in many Protestant churches to focus their worship on preaching rather than on communion.
Besides the well-known but scant data offered by the New Testament, it is possible to reconstruct early Christian worship by piecing together information from a number of extant documents. Although these writings come from different times and places, and therefore there are differences and inconsistencies in what they tell us, it is possible to draw from them a general picture of the typical service of communion.
Matthew 26:17-30King James Version (KJV) 17 Now the first day of the feast of unleavened bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare for thee to eat the passover? 18 And he said, Go into the city to such a man, and say unto him, The Master saith, My time is at hand; I will keep the passover at thy house with my disciples. 19 And the disciples did as Jesus had appointed them; and they made ready the passover. 20 Now when the even was come, he sat down with the twelve. 21 And as they did eat, he said, Verily I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me. 22 And they were exceeding sorrowful, and began every one of them to say unto him, Lord, is it I? 23 And he answered and said, He that dippeth his hand with me in the dish, the same shall betray me. 24 The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good for that man if he had not been born. 25 Then Judas, which betrayed him, answered and said, Master, is it I? He said unto him, Thou hast said. 26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. 27 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; 28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. 29 But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom. 30 And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.

Hello everybody this is the Grover Weaver Ministries.org commentary on the International Sunday School Lesson for the week of 02-07-16 from Exodus 12:1-14; the theme,Jesus is our Passover. I am Grover Weaver your minister and Sunday School teacher. Welcome,
Exodus 12:1-14 the scripture verses of this text is a narration of God creating a path to earth for the Slain Lamb to enter the earth and to redeem man from the penalty of sin, ( Rev 13:8). This slain lamb was slain at the foundation for this very purpose. Thus, the Passover and the Feast of the Unleavened Bread covered in Exodus 12:1-28, is the type of Christ our Redeemer.
The lamb was to be without blemish and to test; it was to be kept for four day as our Lord’s public life was tested under the hostile eyes of the Pharisees and the Sadducees to prove his holiness. The lamb thus tested was to be slain. The blood is to be applied individually...
The Feast of the Unleavened Bread typified an “I am” statement, “I am the Bread of Life. The statement is the foundation of the ancient supper which the Lord’s Table is prepared upon, it is the Eucharist, the Lord’s Supper, the Eucharist Matthew 26:26-28 is established upon I am the Bread of Life...
Churches today are rapidly abandoning the fundamentals of the Christian faith, replacing them (the fundamentals) with Modernistic teachings from the latest New York Times Best Seller. Churches today are saturated today with the unbiblical, ecumenical and compromised teachings of such false teachers as: Joel Osteen, Rick Warren, Benny Hinn, Kenneth & Gloria Copeland, etc. As an example Joel Osteen avoids the topics of sin, Hell and judgment like the Bubonic Plague. As a result, his "church" averages 44,000 attendees every Sunday. Rick Warren on the other-hand has embraced: "chrislam" (some aspects of christianity mixed with the teachings of islam). Both are professional ear-ticklers. They tell you what you want to hear. Joel Osteen, Rick Warren, and others are professional ear-ticklers telling you exactly what you want to hear, but are devoid of the truth. Yes they will occasionally preach something sound, but that is only so as to get you even more entangled into their web. Many pastors today wrongly preach a message of forgiveness without repentance. Yet we see in Acts 2:38 that repentance is to come before one is baptised. An infant or toddler cannot repent of something they do not know about or understand yet.
Many churches forget that the Holy Bible (the word of God) - the Holy scriptures - are supposed to be the Authority in a CHURCH. Too many pastors take it upon themselves to control people's lives, when they ought to be counseling people to make their own decisions using Biblical principles. Jesus told us in John 5:39 to... SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES. Far too many people rely completely upon what their pastor or priest tells them, without ever considering if the advice or what is preached is actually Biblical.
A pastor is to be the greatest servant in the church!
"But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant."
