Children Receive First Holy Communion — 1 Comment

  1. The term Eucharist commonly used to denote communion is “eucharistia ( εὐχαριστίας ) “. It means thankfulness (Strong 2169). It is used only in Acts and Pauline letters when there were thanksgiving, an expression of gratefulness to the LORD. That is the attitude of followers of our LORD but it is not uniquely tied to the communion time. In fact, most high churches dispense the bread and wine with solemnity more like fearful and loathing afraid they may be judged because they told their pews that is why their may die early.

    The term Eulogy commonly used to denote funeral remembrance actually was used in the last super and communion passage “And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.” (Matthew 26:26)

    The Greek word “blessed” is “eulogēsa” (εὐλογήσας). My LORD instituted the bread and wine to be His body broken for me and His blood shed for me with an eternal love not just for the eternal life but for my abundant life now. He has this repeated refrains in “I am the Bread of Life” in the Gospel of John chapter 6 to tell the religious highbrows, His body broken, crushed, grinded under the two mill stones**, handled, marred, baked to give life to all that draw near.

    That is why Paul, the grace secretary for the Risen Christ was told directly (with no one in between) “For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:….” And it is that important because many religious leaders like the other apostles are still confused of the purpose of the communion. All the high church think of fear of the elements but Paul talked about blessing and thanksgiving. In fact if anyone who do not discern of the purpose of the body of Christ broken to bless us then they would be like the rest of the world get sick and die prematurely.. Many cessationist church people died young without healing and miracles since they say and believe no more miracles. While miracles happen every day in homes and hospitals even without a clergy since Jesus is in their midst. “And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house…..”(The Acts chapter 2 – Pentecost)
