Jesus teaches on Communion
Jesus says… I want to talk about Communion… Do not argue, rather love each other
July 30, 2015 – Words from Jesus to Sister Clare
(Clare) The Lord’s Blessing is truly with us, dear Family.
Jesus began… “I want to talk to you about Communion.”
(Clare) Oh boy, that’s a touchy subject… kind of a ‘no go zone’, isn’t it? Since so many are at odds about what communion truly is.
(Jesus) “Haven’t I made Myself perfectly clear on this? At the very least seven times in the Scriptures? If you believe in your heart, and confess with your lips in all sincerity, I will be present to you in a miraculous way in communion. This is My provided way, for the times you live in.
“I have already provided the Scriptures to convince any skeptic that I am truly present in the Bread and Wine. It may look like bread and wine, but none-the-less, I have chosen to be there with you, that you might be nourished for the journey. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in them. (John 6:56)
“There is absolutely no sense in arguing about the way different faiths approach the communion table. This channel is not for that purpose. But, all Christian faiths are agreed that I have declared, ‘This is My Body and My Blood.’ Their particular way of approaching the communion table may be different, though.
“But you, My Bride, must be nourished on My Body and My Blood as well. This is our point of physical union… The bread becomes a part of you physically, and because of that, you and I become One. You are fruitful and bear spiritual children, as well as being strengthened for the journey.
“If you are from a liturgical church and receive communion from a priest, make sure to reinforce the words… ‘truly, Jesus, this is Your Body, and this is Your Blood’. In this way, any lack of intention due to the destruction of the church and the faith from the inside out will be accounted for and made up for in your confession. Yes, you will repair for any lack of faith by your deep reverence and the faith proclamation of your heart. I will honor the sincere prayer of faith.
(Clare) I think what the Lord is alluding to here is that, in this day and age there’s so many different kinds of ministers and priests, who when they say… “This is the Body and Blood of Jesus’ – they don’t really mean it, they don’t really believe it. And what the Lord is saying is that our confession of faith, that it truly is His Body and Blood…that this will make up the difference for their lack of faith.
(Jesus) “May I say, I ALWAYS honor the sincere prayer of faith, although I might not always answer it the way you wish. But, in matters of communion, I will. Not all of you will agree with Me. You have the right to disagree, but I would ask you to consider that these times in which you live, what seems to be the truth on the outside is sometimes lacking in internal form and this is to be considered in any church you receive communion. It is a Mystery of redemption and salvation, sanctifying you for all eternity.
“As it is written in John 6:53… Therefore, Jesus said to them… Very truly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you.
“I want each of you to design your own communion service using, the Last Supper as your guide. To the degree that you believe, to that degree I will be present to you. As things become darker and darker, I want to strengthen you completely in every possible way. The reception of My Body and Blood is one of many ways, but profoundly important to Me.
“Very truly I tell you, the one who believes has eternal life. I am the bread of life. Your ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness, yet they died. But here is the bread that comes down from heaven, which anyone may eat and not die. I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats this bread will live forever. This bread is My flesh, which I will give for the life of the world. (John 6:47-51)
“For those of you who come from a tradition, continue to receive communion as you do. But, if that should ever be brought to an end through persecution, have your own private service in reverence and faith and I will be present to you in a special way.”
“I long to be received into the heart of My Bride. I long to share this communion with you. I long that we should be One in every possible way. Do not deny Me access to your bodies through communion. Do not abstain from receiving Me because you have fallen. It is the sick that need communion the most. First, confess to Me what you have done, sincerely from the heart repenting, and then you may receive.”
“I want you to follow the conviction of your hearts. If you receive from a priest, continue to receive, remembering to confess in faith My presence. If you receive at a non-liturgical church, continue to do so as long as your conscience bears witness – but, be sure to confess in faith My presence.”
“There is so much the many denominations teach that is error, and because of men’s egos, the Truth – for now – shall only be known in Heaven. Do not let a Religious spirit dominate your thinking on this. Do not bicker over traditions. May I say, I hate your bickering. It is filthy vomit in My eyes. Do you know it is better to be silent and maintain the bond of brotherhood and love than to dissemble and contend with one another? What was ever accomplished by that, but enmity.”
“For your information, I will reveal truth to you in your conscience but you are not to force it upon anyone else and say ‘I am of Paul, his way is better. I am of Peter, no! His way is better!’ Do you see how foolish you are in the sight of the angels? Rather pray for one another that the truth will prevail and the rest I shall do in My Own Timing.”
“In the meantime, love one another as I have loved you.”
Here follows an Example of a simple Communion Service by Sister Clare
Dear Family… The Lord has promised that if we confess with our mouth and believe sincerely with our heart, He will indeed visit us in a very special way through a simple home-spun communion service.
There are seven very short parts to this service… 1-Worship, 2-Thanksgiving, 3-Confession of our Sins, 4-Reading a Word from Scripture, 5-The Blessing, 6-Receiving Communion, 7-Resting in the Lord
1. Begin with Worship… Have a worship song or two before your prayers if you have time.
2. Thanksgiving… Lord, I thank and praise You for all You have done for me, all You have given and that You will never forsake me.
3. Confession… I confess I have sinned against You and my brother. (list your sins) Pause. Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; forgive me and, cleanse me from my sins. Create in me a pure heart O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me, and grant a willing spirit, to sustain me.
4. A Word From Scripture… Your Word is a light unto my feet, guide me in Your ways. Open randomly to a rhema reading, meditate on that, repeat it out loud. Remember to confess this word all day.
5. The Blessing… On the night before You died, You had supper with Your apostles, You took bread from the table, lifted it up to the Father and gave thanks and praise. You broke the bread (break the bread) and gave it to Your apostles saying… “Take this, all of you , and eat it: This is My Body which will be given up for you.” (set it aside) Then, You took the cup, lifted it up to the Father and gave thanks, saying… Take this all of you, and drink from it, this is the cup of My Blood, the Blood of the new and everlasting covenant. It will be shed for you and for all so that sins may be forgiven. Do this in memory of Me. (set the cup aside)
6. Receiving Communion… Before you receive communion recite this prayer… “Lord I am not worthy that You should come under my roof, but only say the word and I will be healed. May Your Body and Blood give me the strength to live for You until You Come for us in glory.”
7. Resting in the Lord… Spend time with Jesus after communion, dwell with Him as He strengthens you with Himself.
Here follows an Example of a private Communion by Brother Ezekiel
Knowing that we are the “Body” of Christ, and that a Body cannot be dissected under normal circumstances, I simply sit down at my little prayer altar, with my Bible, a small piece of Bread, and either grape juice/or wine. I usually try to quiet myself before the Lord, asking Him if there is anything particular on His Heart.
I then prayerfully ask the Holy Spirit to guide me, and I open My Bible. I do this three different times, Once to an old testament reading, then to a Psalm, and lastly to a gospel Reading. (by reading, I mean – which ever page the Bible opens to, I will stay with those two pages in front of me. Something should ‘stand out’ to you, or get your attention.
Just read these readings as if Jesus or the Father were literally sitting right there in front of you – as if you are reading a personal letter from Him to you in that moment, as if He is speaking directly to you. For Example: Psalm 23 – “My Precious Child, I AM your Shepherd, You will lack for nothing…(and so on).
The key is, make it personally for you, paraphrasing it so that He is speaking directly to you. This way of reading Scripture will truly bring you into a whole new personal experience of really communicating with Him!
After I have spent some time with the Scriptures, I try to call to remembrance any sins I may have committed, and sincerely repent of anything that I have done, thought, or spoken – or neglecting to be kind or loving to someone.
Naturally you would ask His forgiveness. You might then pray for any special needs, or intercede for others at this time.
After that, offer the Bread and the Wine to our Lord, asking Him to Bless it, and receive His Most Precious Body and Blood, for yourself, and for all others that you can think of, remembering that you are joining with the Body of Christians all over the world in these moments.
I would just say, be natural with Him. Also, Paul says that we are surrounded by a cloud of witnesses cheering us on in the race. Therefore, in these special moments, we are truly joining with the WHOLE Body of Christ undivided, remembering Jesus’ prayer “…that they may be one.”
I know that very powerful graces come down, and are sent out, in and through us, whenever we ‘eat this bread, and drink this cup’. I don’t know of a stronger, and more intimately personal time of True Prayer and Fellowship with the Lord, and the Whole Body!
Hope this helps you… In His Love, Ezekiel
