The Bread in Heaven
Years ago in a vision, the Herculean-size (and I am hearing “Powerful”) Right Hand of the Lord was shown entering through a church’s open door. In His Hand, the Lord held Bread. As His Hand and Arm came closer to the front, His long white sleeve covered the entire length of the church isle. Yesterday evening, another somewhat similar vision was shown. A golden chalice with the whitest bread appeared way up above.
Both visions convey the importance of communing with the Lord. For sure, it includes the physical ritual of communion. An act that commemorates His sacrificial death and resurrected life. And it is a memorial we are called by Jesus to fulfill often in His remembrance. (1 Cor. 11:25-26) But most importantly, Jesus Christ is calling the Church around the world to commune with Him in Spirit and in Truth (the Word: Honor is spoken.) Yes, my goodness! It is the deepest honor to commune with the Lord! Praises and thanks be to our honorable FATHER for blessing us with His glorious and honorable Son. Our Lord, God, Savior, Messiah, King of Kings and Lord of all Lords.
The Bread and the Blood are inseparable! A Believer cannot effectively partake of the Bread (the Spirit of the Lord) unless He partakes of the Blood (believes with faith in the Savior’s finished works on the Cross.) Our Beloved Lord also spoke about the importance of obeying His Commandments, His life-giving Words of truth, in order to receive the Holy Spirit. (Prov. 1:23; Jn. 14:15-21) In this respect, Apostle Peter also included the importance of repentance. (Acts 2:38-41) It is a terrible affront to the holiness of the Lord God in heaven to approach Him unworthily and with an impenitent heart for Divine Communion:
Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. (1 Cor. 11:27-30)
And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. (Jn. 6:25-35)
Consider that our Beloved Lord, Jesus Christ, is calling a people to take the time everyday to commune with Him with faith. During these times, He will speak to your heart, He will direct you, comfort you, instruct you, guide you, feed you, give you abundant and eternal life in ways that are literally ‘out of this world.’ Indeed, Be Still And Know That I Am!
Such beautiful visions! Sometimes human vocabulary cannot justify the meaningful beauty that is shown. Even still, I pray that this message inspires the church, inspires you the Reader wherever you are, to spend time in communion with our Lord. It will bless you…abundantly!
