The Sacrament, Holy Communion, Eucharist, And Table of the Lord Explanation And Resource Site


The Sacrament: Where we ask the question:
"Do you smoke your God, do you cannibalize Him, or do you remember what He did for you?"
The Roman Catholic Take on it:
The Catholic Encyclopedia volume 4 p. 277, article: Consecration

"In celebration of The Holy Mass, the bread and the wine are changed (Added: Guess where the magical spell, Hocus Pocus comes from? Yep, the priest blesses the elements and speaks the "Holy Enchantment" of "Hoc est corpus meus" and presto-changeo, dinner is served!) into the body and blood of Christ. It is called Transubstantiation, for the Sacrament of the Eucharist the substance of bread and wine do not remain, but the entire substance of the bread is changed into the body of Christ, and the entire substance of the wine is changed into His blood, the species or outwards semblance of bread and wine remaining."

Now that's what I call HUNGRY FOR GOD!!!

marijuana-freepxCARLOS SANTANA's Toke on it:

"I got to see there was a lot of people like myself who were smoking pot. "Sacred Sacrament" as Bob Marley would say and we opposed the Vietnam War. And it felt really encouraging to know that I wasn't alone, that a lot of people, kindred souls like myself, you know, we didn't have to hide in alleys anymore to do the sacrament. Just like they drink wine at church every Sunday, you know, it's the same thing when you smoke a joint. It's no different, man... We'd accepted a lot of different teachings because I was raised a Christian. And we have moved beyond and through Buddhist thought and Native American thought. And we continue to grow and just try to touch more of who we are inside, what our essence is and why we're here... Live your light and Jesus will be cheering for you. He's no bigger than us and we're not bigger than him. We embody the same light. And to me, if you live your light, Jesus will give you a high five when you get to the other side. Sometimes take the time to ask yourself what religion is God?"

Now that's what I call HOLY SMOKE!!!

The Bible Take?

Good Old Saint Paul has the answer on this one. He got angry watching the Corithian church turning the "Lord's Supper" or "Communion" from a solemn act into a reason to party and get drunk. (1Cr 11:19-22) He went on to explain the correct manner to partake.....

1Cr 11:26 - 30 Greek Translation:

"For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death till he come.

Whosoever therefore, eats this bread, or drinks the cup of the Lord, IN AN UNWORTHY MANNER will be guilty of profaning the body and blood of the Lord.

Let a man examine himself, and so eat of the bread, and drink of the cup.

For any one who eats and drinks without discerning* the body eats and drinks judgment upon himself.

That is why MANY OF YOU are weak and ill, and some have died."

*The key to understanding how to take the Holy Communion is in DISCERNING:

Here's the simple answer: Consider the act of Communion and discern what the elements in the bread and the wine mean.

Christ's blood (wine symbolism) spilled out to cover our sins.

Christ's body (bread symbolism) took on every sickness and punishment
to cover our health.

Learn to take Communion at home: Consider the opening words of verse 26:
"For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup"

it's clear this act was meant to take anytime YOU need it. Anytime you feel like "Communing" with Jesus by giving thanks, and devotion for what he did for your sorry soul. By properly remembering and discerning the elements.

Jesus is suggesting at mealtime you take a moment to remember Him and what He did for you. You don't need wine or bread. Use whatever your eating and drinking. What matters is that you discern the elements meaning before partaking.

Agape feast

The expression The Lord's Supper, derived from St. Paul's usage in 1 Corinthians 11:17-34, may have originally referred to the Agape feast, the shared communal meal with which the Eucharist was originally associated. The Agape feast is mentioned in Jude 12. But The Lord's Supper is now commonly used in reference to a celebration involving no food other than the sacramental bread and wine.

Early Christian sources

The Didache (Greek: teaching) is an early Church order, including, among other features, instructions for Baptism and the Eucharist. Most scholars date it to the early 2nd century. Two separate Eucharistic traditions appear in the Didache, the earlier tradition in chapter 10 and the later one preceding it in chapter 9. The Eucharist is mentioned again in chapter 14.

Ignatius of Antioch, one of the Apostolic Fathers and a direct disciple of the Apostle John, mentions the Eucharist as "the flesh of our Saviour Jesus Christ", and Justin Martyr speaks of it as more than a meal: "the food over which the prayer of thanksgiving, the word received from Christ, has been said ... is the flesh and blood of this Jesus who became flesh ... and the deacons carry some to those who are absent."

Eucharistic theology

Many Christian denominations classify the Eucharist as a sacrament.[19] Some Protestants prefer to call it an ordinance, viewing it not as a specific channel of divine grace but as an expression of faith and of obedience to Christ.

Most Christians, even those who deny that there is any real change in the elements used, recognize a special presence of Christ in this rite, though they differ about exactly how, where, and when Christ is present. Roman Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy teach that the consecrated elements truly become the body and blood of Jesus Christ. Transubstantiation is the metaphysical explanation given by Roman Catholics as to how this transformation occurs. Lutherans believe that the body and blood of Jesus are present "in, with and under" the forms of bread and wine, a concept known as the sacramental union. The Reformed churches, following the teachings of John Calvin, believe in a spiritual (or "pneumatic") real presence of Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit and received by faith. Anglicans adhere to a range of views although the Anglican church officially teaches the real presence. Some Christians reject the concept of the real presence, believing that the Eucharist is only a memorial of the death of Christ.

The Baptism, Eucharist and Ministry document of the World Council of Churches, attempting to present the common understanding of the Eucharist on the part of the generality of Christians, describes it as "essentially the sacrament of the gift which God makes to us in Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit", "Thanksgiving to the Father", "Anamnesis or Memorial of Christ", "the sacrament of the unique sacrifice of Christ, who ever lives to make intercession for us", "the sacrament of the body and blood of Christ, the sacrament of his real presence", "Invocation of the Spirit", "Communion of the Faithful", and "Meal of the Kingdom".

Table of the Lord Basics


It's no surprise the devil has caused so much confusion regarding a commandment Jesus instructed us to follow. When it comes to "The Table of the Lord" he went into overdrive. Imagine how he managed to make 25% of the world population believe they are eating the actual flesh, and drinking the actual blood of Jesus Christ.

Watch Pastor Joe Cortes of Faith Cometh By Hearing ministries present the simple meaning and act of the communion. This teaching along with many more on the subject can be found on  in the "Teaching Center" section on the website here:

"9/11" is the most wonderful date on the calendar. It's the date our savior was born. Is it any wonder Satan has used his Islamic army to mar it throughout history and especially in these last days? Why? Because he knows that date has a future
importance too!
