Title: THE LORD'S SUPPER


1
THE LORDS SUPPER
  • TRADITION OR TRUCE?

2
JESUS METAPHORIC LANGUAGE
  • MATTHEW 2626-28
  • 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.
    And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it
    to them, saying, Drink ye all of it For this is
    my blood of the new testament, which is shed for
    many for the remission of sins.

3
MULTITUDE BREAD OR BENEFIT
  • JOHN 61, 2, 12-14
  • After These things Jesus went over the sea of
    Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias. And a
    great multitude followed him, because they saw
    his miracles which he did on them that were
    diseased. When they were filled, he said unto his
    disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain,
    that nothing be lost. Therefore they gathered
    them together, and filled twelve baskets with the
    fragments of the five barley loaves, which
    remained over and above unto them that had eaten.
    Then those men, when they had seen the miracle
    that Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that
    prophet that should come into the world.

ELLEN G. WHITE, DESIRE OF AGES, p. 377
  • But the miracle of loaves appealed to every one
    in that vast multitude. All were sharers in its
    benefit. In the days of Moses, God had fed Israel
    with manna in the desert and who was this that
    had create from five barley loaves and two
    fishes, food sufficient to feed thousands of
    hungry people. The disciples had long hoped for a
    popular movement to place Jesus on the throne
  • JOHN 615, 26, 27
  • When Jesus therefore perceived that they would
    come and take him by force, to make him king, he
    departed again into a mountain himself alone.
    Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I
    say unto you, You seek me, not because ye saw the
    miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves,
    and were filled. Labour not for the meat which

5
  • perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto
    everlasting life, which the Son of man shall
    give unto you for him hath God the Father
    sealed.
  • Four kinds of followers
  • Political King
  • Miraculous Signs Wonders
  • Prosperity Get not Give
  • Bread Body Blood

6
FOLLOWERS SEEK AFTER A SIGN
  • JOHN 630, 31
  • They said therefore unto him, what sign shewest
    thou then, that we may see, and believe thee?
    What dost thou work? Our fathers did eat manna
    in the desert as it is written, He gave them
    bread from heaven to eat.

7
A TRADITION OR A TRUCE?
  • JOHN 651-59, 60, 63 LIVING BREAD
  • I am the living bread which came down from
    heaven if any man eat of this bread, he shall
    live for ever and the bread that I will give is
    my flesh, which I will give for the life of the
    world. The Jews therefore strove among
    themselves, saying, How can this man give us his
    flesh to eat? Then Jesus said unto them, Verily,
    verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh
    of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have
    no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and
    drinketh my blood, Hath eternal life and I will
    raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is
    meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He
    that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood,

8
  • dwelleth in me, and I in him. As the living
    Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father so
    he that eateth me, even he shall live by me. This
    is that bread which came down from heaven not as
    your fathers did eat manna, and are dead he that
    eateth of this bread shall live for ever. These
    things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in
    Capernaum. Many therefore of his disciples, when
    they had heard this, said, This is an hard
    saying who can hear it? It is the spirit that
    quickeneth the flesh profiteth nothing the
    words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and
    they are life.

THE LORDS SUPPER WILDERNESS
  • DEUTERONOMY 83
  • And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to
    hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou
    knewest not, neither did thy fathers know that
    he might make thee know that man doth not live by
    bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out
    of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.
  • Physical Food Manna
  • Spiritual Food WORD OF GOD
  • MATTHEW 56
  • Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst
    after righteousness for they shall filled.

11
OLD TESTAMENT APOSTASY
  • ZECHARIAH 711, 12
  • But they refused to hearken, and pulled away the
    shoulder, and stopped their ears, that they
    should not hear. Yea, they made their hearts as
    an adamant stone, lest they should hear the law,
    and the words which the Lord of hosts.
  • APOSTASY BETRAYAL EXODUS 321-4
  • 2 CHRONICLES 3615, 16 JERUSALEMS FALL
  • And the LORD God of their fathers sent them by
    his messengers, rising up betimes, and sending
    because he had compassion on his people, and on
    his dwelling place But they mocked the
    messengers of God, and despised his words, and
    misused his prophets, until the wrath of the Lord
    arose against his people, till there was no
    remedy.

12
NEW TESTAMENT APOSTASY
  • JOHN 658, 64, 66, 71 APOSTASY BETRAYAL
  • This is that bread which came down from heaven
    not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead
    he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.
    But there are some of you that believe not. For
    Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that
    believed not, and who should betray him. From
    that time many of his disciples went back, and
    walked no more with him. He spake of Judas
    Iscariot the son of Simon for he it was that
    should betray him, being one of the twelve.

13
  • Olivetan said, There are but two religions in
    the world. The one class of religions are those
    which men have invented, in all of which man
    saves himself by ceremonies and good works the
    other is that one religion which is revealed in
    the Bible, and which teaches man to look for
    salvation solely from the free grace of God.
  • GREAT CONTROVERSY, pp. 219-221

14
A CLASS OF RELIGION THAT MEN HAVE INVENTED
  • ELLEN G. WHITE, GREAT CONTROVERSY, pp. 280-281
  • But many of the revivals of modern times have
    presented a marked contrast to those
    manifestations of the divine grace which in
    earlier days followed the labors of Gods
    servants. Popular revivals are too often carried
    by appeals to the imagination, by exciting the
    emotions, by gratifying the love for what is new
    and startling. But where, in the popular churches
    today, is the spirit of consecration for God? The
    converts do not renounce their pride and love of
    the world. The power of godliness has well-nigh
    departed from the churches

15
  • Picnics, church theatricals, church
    fairs, fine houses, personal display, have
    banished thoughts of God. Lands and goods and
    worldly occupations engross the mind, and things
    of eternal interest receive hardly a passing
    notice. Before the final visitation of God's
    judgments upon the earth, there will be, among
    the people of the Lord, such a revival of
    primitive godliness as has not been witnessed
    since apostolic times. The Spirit and power of
    God will be poured out upon his children. At that
    time many will separate themselves from those
    churches in which the love of this world has
    supplanted love for God and his Word. The enemy
    of souls desires to hinder this work and before
    the time for such a movement shall come, he will
    endeavor to prevent it, by introducing a
    counterfeit. In those churches which he can bring
    under his deceptive power, he will make it appear
    that God's special blessing is poured out there
    will be manifest what is thought to be great
    religious interest. Multitudes will exult that
    God is working marvelously for them, when the
    work is that of another spirit.

16
RELIGION OF THE BIBLE LORDS SUPPER
  • ELLEN G. WHITE, MANUSCRIPT 81, 1906 33, 1911.
  • A HEAVEN-SENT TEACHER.
  • I am the bread of life, the Author, Nourisher,
    and Supporter of eternal, spiritual life. To eat
    his flesh and to drink blood means to receive him
    as a heaven-sent teacher. Belief in him is
    essential to spiritual life. Those who feast on
    the Word never hunger, never thirst, never desire
    any higher or more exalted good.

17
EATING AND DRINKING REPRESENTS NEARNESS TO
CHRIST
  • His statement regarding eating and drinking the
    blood of the Son of God, is to be taken in a
    spiritual sense. We eat Christs flesh and drink
    his blood when we by faith lay hold upon Him as
    our Saviour. The temporal food we eat is
    assimilated, giving strength and solidity to the
    body. In a similar manner, as we believe and
    receive the words of the Lord Jesus, they become
    a part of our spiritual life, bringing light and
    peace, hope and joy, and strengthening the soul
    as physical food strengthens the body.
