Do This in Memory of Me

John 6:33 The bread of God is the bread which comes down out of heaven and gives life to the world.

What love our Father has for mankind that he should give them the nearest and dearest thing of his heart, his son's life. Can there be any greater love, any greater sacrifice YHWH could express towards us?

1 John 3:1 See what great love the Father has given us in naming us the children of God; and such we are. For this reason the world does not see who we are, because it did not see who he was.

1 John 3:16 In this we see what love is, because he gave his life for us; and it is right for us to give our lives for the brothers.

Such a gift is indescribable, but what makes the gift of Christ life so amazing unlike humans, God gives it freely, without our ability to earn it! In other words, God believes in he power of love, have you ever thought that love is so powerful that it conquers all the evils in this world?

Romans 8:26 And in the same way the Spirit is a help to our feeble hearts: for we are not able to make prayer to God in the right way; but the Spirit puts our desires into words which are not in our power to say.

Ephesians 3:20 Now to him who is able to do in full measure more than all our desires or thoughts, through the power which is working in us.

Colossians 1:13 Who has made us free from the power of evil and given us a place in the kingdom of the Son of his love.

Colossians 3:12 As saints of God, then, holy and dearly loved, let your behaviour be marked by pity and mercy, kind feeling, a low opinion of yourselves, gentle ways, and a power of undergoing all things.

God in his manifold wisdom set out to express his love to us human residing in darkness by something so profound that most of us still cannot fully comprehend the power God expressed in the simplest most beautiful of forms, peace, hope, love, and faith.

2 Corinthians 6:6 In a clean heart, in knowledge, in long waiting, in being kind, in the Holy Spirit, in true love.

2 Corinthians 8:7 And that as you are full of every good thing, of faith, of the word, of knowledge, of a ready mind, and of love to us, so you may be full of this grace in the same way.

Luke 14:34 For salt is good, but if the taste goes from it, of what use is it?

1 Peter 2:3 If you have had a taste of the grace of the Lord:

Love Feast

When Christ gather with his disciples in the upper room he wanted them to remember one things, for them to remember his life, but how? what was Christ life for, what story did it tell us in actions that he wanted us and them to have lasting memory of, memories that would carry us through each day of this world full of tribulation?

1 John 4:9 And the love of God was made clear to us when he sent his only Son into the world so that we might have life through him.

1 John 4:4 You are of God, my little children, and you have overcome them because he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

The Lords evening meal was the greatest love feast every held in remembrance of the Father's love for his Son and us? That is the singular point of all that would follow this most epic event ever held on earth in the sight of God and his holy angles. Would Christ love the Father so much like Isaac that he would let his life willingly be sacrifice for his Father's purposes?

John 3:16 For God had such love for the world that he gave his only Son, so that whoever has faith in him may not come to destruction but have eternal life.

John 15:9 Even as the Father has given me his love, so I have given my love to you: be ever in my love.

What would his apostles do? Would they become like the nations seeking power and control over their brothers and sisters or remember Christ washing the feet of each one of them on his night of arrest and torment? Everything from this night forward would wrought powerful change into those apostles mind and hearts, world events were going to take place that would removed the heavens and the earth for the love of God for his Son and mankind.

John 15:13 Greater love has no man than this, that a man gives up his life for his friends.

John 13:1 Now before the feast of the Passover, it was clear to Jesus that the time had come for him to go away from this world to the Father. Having once had love for those in the world who were his, his love for them went on to the end.

Nothing can be more powerful than love, for it is stronger than death, it is flame of Jah that cannot be put out.

Song of Solomon.8:6 Set me as a seal on thy heart, as a seal on thine arm, For strong as death is love, Sharp as Sheol is jealousy, Its burnings `are' burnings of fire, a flame of Jah!

Marriage Fest at Cain of Galilee

Lets us remember the start of Christ ministry, a time of rejoicing a young couple in love with hopes and dreams of a wonderful future all their rejoicing at the hope of new love, what a powerful place to start his ministry, a place of hope, based upon the strongest of feelings the love for a groom for his bride, and the faithful love of a bride for her groom.

Revelation 2:4 But I have this against you, that you are turned away from your first love.

John 15:9 Even as the Father has given me his love, so I have given my love to you: be ever in my love.

In the mist of this rejoicing the wine ran out, and Christ performed his first miracle, new wine, made from where? Heaven! Not from the hands of man working in the hot sun laboring for a days wages, but freely, and in abundance, more than plenty was God's gift to this wonderful love feast.

Romans 5:5 And hope does not put to shame; because our hearts are full of the love of God through the Holy Spirit which is given to us.

Romans 8:37 But we are able to overcome all these things and more through his love.

Ephesians 5:18 And do not take overmuch wine by which one may be overcome, but be full of the Spirit;

Luke 5:37 And no man puts new wine into old wine-skins, for fear that the skins will be burst by the new wine, and the wine be let out, and the skins come to destruction.

Yes the old wine was good, but the new coming from heaven was priceless without words. This is the start of Christ ministry, fresh new, God was making all things new! New would be their law, their covenant, the way of dealing with each other unlike the evil of the nations, but a brotherhood a family filled with new wine, the Holy Spirit, a love feast that brings about prophesying about our brother in heaven, Christ Jesus, is this how we remember the life of Christ tonight, as he so humbly ask us to remember the love of the Father?

John 13:35 By this it will be clear to all men that you are my disciples, if you have love one for another.

1 John 4:8 He who has no love has no knowledge of God, because God is love.

Is this mark of Christ we bear before this world, love? Is this how we are known? By the love of God poured out into our hearts in expression of new wine (Spirit)?, Our rejoicing in the hope of the great marriage fest with our Lord where he will drinking wine new with us in his kingdom?

Matthew 10:42 And whoever gives to one of these little ones a cup of cold water only, in the name of a disciple, truly I say to you, he will not go without his reward.

Matt.26:27 And he took a cup and, having given praise, he gave it to them, saying, 26:28 Take of it, all of you, for this is my blood of the testament, which is given for men for the forgiveness of sins. 26:29 But I say to you that from now I will not take of this fruit of the vine, till that day when I take it new with you in my Father's kingdom.

Let us remember, we have been made new, we have been born again out of love, yes? We were not born again by suspicious and hate, from father with no love of his children. We are born a new, a miracle from a Father's love, like new wine, like the great rejoicing for a family giving birth to a new child of God.

1 Peter 1:23 Because you have had a new birth, not from the seed of man, but from eternal seed, through the word of a living and unchanging God.

Titus 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we did ourselves, but in the measure of his mercy, he gave us salvation, through the washing of the new birth and the giving of new life in the Holy Spirit,

Bread of Life

On this night we worship in Spirit and truth, it is the witness of the Spirit in us that causes this night to be special. Here is how we honor the Father and the Son. Let us remember it is not by bread alone that we live, but by Spirit and truth, which is the source of our new life, the head of the body Christ Jesus. We can commune with each other in Spirit, because we have taken the bread of life.

Deut.8:1 Take care to keep all the orders which I give you today, so that you may have life and be increased and go in and take as a heritage the land which the Lord, by his oath to your fathers, undertook to give you.

Duet.8:2 And keep in mind the way by which the Lord your God has taken you through the waste land these forty years, so that he might make low your pride and put you to the test, to see what was in your heart and if you would keep his orders or not.
8:3 And he made low your pride and let you be without food and gave you manna for your food, a thing new to you, which your fathers never saw; so that he might make it clear to you that bread is not man's only need, but his life is in every word which comes out of the mouth of the Lord.

But let us remember why God gave Israel the manna (the bread of life), was it not to humble them towards each other and God, what value is there if we don't walk in love towards each other? Christ took the loaf of bread and broke it, why break what is perfect without sin? Why crush what is beautiful and full of love?

Isa.53:2 For his growth was like that of a delicate plant before him, and like a root out of a dry place: he had no grace of form, to give us pleasure; 53:3 Men made sport of him, turning away from him; he was a man of sorrows, marked by disease; and like one from whom men's faces are turned away, he was looked down on, and we put no value on him. 53:4 But it was our pain he took, and our diseases were put on him: while to us he seemed as one diseased, on whom God's punishment had come. 53:5 But it was for our sins he was wounded, and for our evil doings he was crushed: he took the punishment by which we have peace, and by his wounds we are made well. 53:6 We all went wandering like sheep; going every one of us after his desire; and the Lord put on him the punishment of us all.

So we might live, so we might be redeemed in God's love, so we might walk in love towards each other. The breaking of the bread is painful, we are broken in our flesh at times, but lets us remember, is it not for life we suffer in our flesh? Is it not for and expression of God's love, so he might set creation free?

Rom. 8:16 The Spirit is witness with our spirit that we are children of God: 8:17 And if we are children, we have a right to a part in the heritage; a part in the things of God, together with Christ; so that if we have a part in his pain, we will in the same way have a part in his glory. 8:18 I am of the opinion that there is no comparison between the pain of this present time and the glory which we will see in the future. 8:19 For the strong desire of every living thing is waiting for the revelation of the sons of God.

The Sacred Secret

Eph.5:32 This is a great secret: but my words are about Christ and the church.

Do we know the great secret of the church of God. Do we hate the flesh of our own body? Do we beat it because we can't see past judgment of the flesh? Are we not shares in the blood and flesh of Christ Jesus?

1 Peter 3:21 And baptism, of which this is an image, now gives you salvation, not by washing clean the flesh, but by making you free from the sense of sin before God, through the coming again of Jesus Christ from the dead;

Ephesians 5:29 For no man ever had hate for his flesh; but he gives it food and takes care of it, even as Christ does for the church;

What affection does a body have for its members, no man ever hated his own flesh, but he feeds and cherish it? Do we like an evil servant of the same body beat our brothers in Christ, because we hate some straw in their fleshly eye? Can this really be our position in Christ?

Hebrews 2:14 And because the children are flesh and blood, he took a body himself and became like them; so that by his death he might put an end to him who had the power of death, that is to say, the Evil One;

1 Corinthians 11:27 If, then, anyone takes the bread or the cup of the Lord in the wrong spirit, he will be responsible for the body and blood of the Lord.

John 12:47 And if any man gives ear to my words and does not keep them, I am not his judge: I did not come to be judge of the world but to give salvation to the world.

Romans 14:4 Who are you to make yourself a judge of another man's servant? it is to his master that he is responsible for good or bad. Yes, his place will be safe, because the Lord is able to keep him from falling.

Is the Lords meal a night of judgment and harsh treatment of each other? None of us know how Christ is working in our brothers and sisters, what judgment, and/or discipline they may being going through for the glory of God? Is that really what we are to be doing in Christ as our head?

Romans 14:10 But you, why do you make yourself your brother's judge? or again, why have you no respect for your brother? because we will all have to take our place before God as our judge.

Do we dwell upon the power of love, the very thing that has changed our own life into a new creation freely without works we have done good or bad? If God cannot redeem his children, correcting them and teaching them should we think its up too us? But what of our own hope is it so weak God will let us go so easily when God did not spare his own son for us?

Rom.8:6 For the mind of the flesh is death, but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace:

Rom. 8:29 Because those of whom he had knowledge before they came into existence, were marked out by him to be made like his Son, so that he might be the first among a band of brothers:
8:30 And those who were marked out by him were named; and those who were named were given righteousness; and to those to whom he gave righteousness, in the same way he gave glory.
8:31 What may we say about these things? If God is for us, who is against us? 8:32 He who did not keep back his only Son, but gave him up for us all, will he not with him freely give us all things? 8:33 Who will say anything against the saints of God? It is God who makes us clear from evil; 8:34 Who will give a decision against us? It is Christ Jesus who not only was put to death, but came again from the dead, who is now at the right hand of God, taking our part.

Will the power of love fail if we pray in it (the Spirit) for our brothers and sisters of the same body as us? Should we think there was any less of a test among the apostles of Christ when Christ humbled himself and washed their feet? Not once did Christ concern himself with losing a sheep, why? Because he believed in the power of God's love which love cannot fail.

1Cor.13:7 Love has the power of undergoing all things, having faith in all things, hoping all things. 13:8 Though the prophet's word may come to an end, tongues come to nothing, and knowledge have no more value, love has no end.

1Cor.13:12 For now we see things in a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now my knowledge is in part; then it will be complete, even as God's knowledge of me. 13:13 But now we still have faith, hope, love, these three; and the greatest of these is love.

Perfect Bond of Peace

Colossians 3:14 Above all these things, walk in love, which is the bond of perfection.

1 Corinthians 16:14 Let all that you do be done in love.

Ephesians 1:4 even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and without blemish before him in love;

We understand knowledge is important for us to comprehend the truth of why Christ instituted the Lord's Evening Meal, but what is knowledge for those conceived in love if it not to create more love for God, which increases our faith in God and each other?

Ephesians 3:19 and to know Christ's love which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Philippians 1:9 This I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and all discernment;

1Cor.13:1 If I make use of the tongues of men and of angels, and have not love, I am like sounding brass, or a loud-tongued bell.
13:2 And if I have a prophet's power, and have knowledge of all secret things; and if I have all faith, by which mountains may be moved from their place, but have not love, I am nothing. 13:3 And if I give all my goods to the poor, and if I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it is of no profit to me.

Are we not thankful that God has left over a remnant for us? Is it not a beautiful things to hear their expression of love for our Father Jehovah? Does it not encourage our own faith and love to have brothers and sisters subject to the same trials as our older brother in heaven suffered on earth, and now them?

Colossians 3:2 Keep your mind on the higher things, not on the things of earth.

Philippians 2:2 Make my joy complete by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in harmony and of one mind;

12:10 Be kind to one another with a brother's love, putting others before yourselves in honour;

Should we not be kind, and compassionate, lowly in mind with each other washing the dust and mud off from this world corruption from each others feet? Should our brother not know that what ever mistake they make they have a real family that loves them and will not give upon them?

Rom. 12:15 Take part in the joy of those who are glad, and in the grief of those who are sorrowing. 12:16 Be in harmony with one another. Do not have a high opinion of yourselves, but be in agreement with common people. Do not give yourselves an air of wisdom.

Do we not believe in the power of prayer, the hope of Christ indwelling our brothers and sisters any longer? We have but one thing that marks us out of all the world, should the love of fleshly family shame us? These are some thoughts we should reflect upon, when breaking the bread, and drinking the wine. This is our hope, love, the love of God we must learn to live each day, and put faith in, for without faith it is impossible to please him - whom we celebrate.

James 5:16 Confess your offenses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The insistent prayer of a righteous person is powerfully effective.

Col.3:13 Being gentle to one another and having forgiveness for one another, if anyone has done wrong to his brother, even as the Lord had forgiveness for you: 3:14 And more than all, have love; the only way in which you may be completely joined together.
3:15 And let the peace of Christ be ruling in your hearts, as it was the purpose of God for you to be one body; and give praise to God at all times. 3:16 Let the word of Christ be in you in all wealth of wisdom; teaching and helping one another with songs of praise and holy words, making melody to God with grace in your hearts.
3:17 And whatever you do, in word or in act, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving praise to God the Father through him.

John.13:13 You give me the name of Master and Lord: and you are right; that is what I am. 13:14 If then I, the Lord and the Master, have made your feet clean, it is right for you to make one another's feet clean. 13:15 I have given you an example, so that you may do what I have done to you. 13:16 Truly I say to you, A servant is not greater than his lord; and he who is sent is not greater than the one who sent him. 13:17 If these things are clear to you, happy are you if you do them.

John.13:33 My dear children, I am only to be with you a little longer. Then you will be looking for me: and as I said to the Jews, so now I say to you, Where I am going you may not come. 13:34 I give you a new law: Have love one for another; even as I have had love for you, so are you to have love one for another. 13:35 By this it will be clear to all men that you are my disciples, if you have love one for another.

Danny I really enjoyed reading this commentary how loving God is in providing his only begotten son so our sins could be blotted. While I was reading this it made me think our flesh and how these religions try to tell us how perfect we have to be and how hard we have work to do it ,that when we fail we feel God doesn't love us any more .No wonder so many people tun thier backs on religion and God saying he is not a loving God .
And that is a big fat lie and we know Satan and his demons are behind this LIE . And has been from the begining with Adam and Eve .

May Yaweh keep blessing you with these commentaries !
