The Importance of The Lords Supper and Foot Washing!
By Chaplain Jimmie Warren
As we try to show the importance of the meaning of the wine and bread, and what "foot washing" is all about, let us examine the facts:This years service is at sunset night of Friday April 22th 2016 service 7 PM at Spokane Church of God (7th day) 2929 N.Freya Spokane WA call pastor Brian Larson (509) 220-2276 to attend, tell him Chaplain Jimmie Warren recommend you!
The " Lord's Supper " which some still call the Passover represents the sacrifice of Christ which pays for the sins of all who repent and accept it in faith. It also represents partaking of eternal life through Jesus Christ (shown by the taking of the bread and wine which symbolize His body and blood).
Y’shua/Jesus met with His disciples at the beginning of the 14th of Nisan.. It is clear not only from the gospel of John that He had the Last Supper a full day earlier than the Jewish Passover of the Old covenant "Then they led Jesus from Caiaphas into the Praetorium, and it was early; and they themselves did not enter into the Praetorium so that they would not be defiled, but might eat the Passover. (John 18:28), this is also indicated by passing remarks in the Synoptic gospels. (While it is recognized that there are still some unanswered questions in any attempt at harmonizing all four accounts, it is evident that Jesus took His Passover a day earlier than the Jews.) By far this most important festival of Jesus' life was the one at which He was betrayed.
In any case, Y’shua /Jesus at this time changed the symbols of the Passover for Christians and also went through the ceremony of washing the disciples’ feet. This years Passover will be the night of Friday April 22th 2016 service 7 PM we will celebrate the Lord's Supper and foot washing as our Lords example!
The most detailed discussion is devoted to the celebration of the Christian Passover.
"Then He poured water into the basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded. So He came to Simon Peter. He said to Him, "Lord, do You wash my feet?" Jesus answered and said to him, "What I do you do not realize now, but you will understand hereafter." Peter said to Him, "Never shall You wash my feet!" Jesus answered him, "If I do not wash you, you have no part with Me." Simon Peter said to Him, "Lord, then wash not only my feet, but also my hands and my head." Jesus said to him, "He who has bathed needs only to wash his feet, but is completely clean; and you are clean, but not all of you." For He knew the one who was betraying Him; for this reason He said, "Not all of you are clean." So when He had washed their feet, and taken His garments and reclined at the table again, He said to them, "Do you know what I have done to you? "You call Me Teacher and Lord;and you are right, for so I am. "If I then, the Lord and the Teacher, washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet. "For I gave you an example that you also should do as I did to you. "Truly, truly, I say to you, a slave is not greater than his master, nor is one who is sent greater than the one who sent him. "If you know these things, you are blessed if you do them. (John. 13:5-17).
" For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which He was betrayed took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, "This is My body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of Me." In the same way He took the cup also after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me." For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until He comes.Therefore whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner, shall be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord. But a man must examine himself, and in so doing he is to eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For he who eats and drinks, eats and drinks judgment to himself if he does not judge the body rightly. For this reason many among you are weak and sick, and a number sleep. But if we judged ourselves rightly, we would not be judged. But when we are judged, we are disciplined by the Lord so that we will not be condemned along with the world. So then, my brethren, when you come together to eat, wait for one another. If anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, so that you will not come together for judgment. The remaining matters I will arrange when I come.1 Corinthian11:17-34)
Following scriptures gives detailed directions on how to take the "Lord's Supper" (kuriakon deipnon) or "communion." The memorial celebration was conducted "on the night when He was betrayed," that is, the evening at the beginning of the 14th ( 23). Y’shua /Jesus The Passover [Lord's Supper] is observed in the evening at the beginning of Nisan 14 in a very solemn ceremony, the most structured of any of the annual assemblies.
In order, is first the foot washing service, then the taking of the bread, and finally the drinking of the wine then closing with song.
Before each part of the ceremony appropriate scriptures are read at the end of these services sing a song or two then, close and dismiss your services.
The purpose of the foot washing ceremony
"... Know ye what I have done to you? Ye call me Master and Lord; and ye say well, for so I am. If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet. For I HAVE GIVEN YOU AN EXAMPLE THAT YE SHOULD DO AS I HAVE DONE TO YOU!" (John 13:12-15).
The bread represents the body of Y'shua Jesus
Jesus is the "bread of life." The eating of the bread and the drinking of the wine represent partaking of the eternal life which only God can give. The beaten body of Christ also represents the stripes He took on His back enabling us to claim the gift of divine healing for our physical infirmities "Surely our griefs He Himself bore, And our sorrows He carried; Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken,Smitten of God,and afflicted. But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities;The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him,And by His scourging we are healed." (Isaiah 53:4-5)
"and while being reviled, He did not revile in return; while suffering, He uttered no threats, but kept entrusting Himself to Him who judges righteously; and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed. For you were continually straying like sheep, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Guardian of your souls.(1 Peter 2:22-24).
The shed blood of Jesus who gave Himself as an offering to pay for all the sins of mankind. That full and complete sacrifice makes it possible for one to have any and all sins forgiven upon repentance.
The wine represents the blood of Y'shua Messiah
The wine also represents the New Covenant made between God and the Christian by the blood of Christ. is explained by Jesus Himself as being to show true humility and the proper sense of service "And when He had taken a cup and given thanks, He gave it to them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you; for this is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for forgiveness of sins. "But I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father's kingdom." After singing a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.(Matthew 26:22-30)
No one can be greater than His Lord, who is Jesus Christ; yet Jesus was the greatest servant of all and gave more than anyone else for mankind. This spirit of Christian love and service is expressed symbolically by washing another person's feet and then allowing that person to reciprocate. Jesus left instructions for His disciples to follow.ticle we hope you start your new year off with a fresh start because of Jesus Christ and His great love for you all. Amen!
In the name of our Lord and Master Y’shua
Be blessed and have new life in Him who loves you so much He laid down His life so you could live forever in the wonderful Kingdom of our Father God Amen
