†††††††††The Holy Bible Is The Immutable Living Word Of The Eternal God. 
                 
†† ††††††††The Bible We Recommend Is The King James 1611 / A.V. Bible.

†††††††††† Hereís the reason, shocking but enlightening truth: The Bible Is Used To Deceive

 

†††††††††† All Of Our Rituals,†††† †††††††††††††††††††Are An Abomination To The Eternal God.

†††††††††† All Of Our Festivals,††††††††††††††††††† Are An Abomination To The Eternal God.

†††††††††† All Of Our Pagan Practices††††††† Are An Abomination To The Eternal God.

 

†††††††††† The Eternal God Is Not A Robotic Moron, On Whom We Make Demands,

†††††††††† And Whom We Obey, As We Like And, When It Is Convenient To Us.

 

†††††

†††††††††† The Eternal God Is Not A Robotic Moron, On Whom We Make Demands.

 

†† ††††††††He Is Our Living, Loving, Personal Saviour.There Is No Other.††

†††††††††† Christ Is The Solution To All Our Problems.There Is No Other.

 

†††††††††† 1 Timothy 2:5For there is One God, and

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††One Mediator between God and men,

†††††††††† If This Verse Is Not In Your Bible, Your Bible Is Corrupt.

†††††††††† Throw It Away.

†††††††††† You Have Been Deceived Into Serving Satan, the god of this world.

†††††††††† Sincerity Is Not The Issue. You can be sincere, and still be wrong.

††††††††††††††† ††††††The Passover Service†† -March 24 2013†††††

 

††††††††††††††††† Remembering the Sacrifice of Christ.

 

It is important to understand that we celebrate the Passover,

because it was a direct command of Jesus Christ.

 

Luke 22:19And he (Christ) took bread, and gave thanks,

and brake it, and gave unto them, saying,

This is my body which is given for you:

this do in remembrance of me.

 

Christ also said:

 

John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

 

John 15:10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love;

even as I have kept my Fatherís commandments,

and abide in his love.

 

Because of questions regarding how do we observe the Passover,

we have put together the following as a guide to New believers.

It has to be stressed that this is not written in stone.

Some of this information has been sent out already

but here it is all in one place.

 

Of course you can read these verses directly out of your bible,

if you so desire.

This document will help in continuity and the flow of the meeting.

 

Hidden, residual or unrepented sin should be resolved before the meeting.

 

The Passover observance is a service that is carried out once a year.

The people taking the Passover should be converted Christians, that is those who have accepted Christ as their personal saviour.

We can see that it is only the 12 disciples of Jesus who were

at this Passover meal.

This is a solemn service.

 

Matthew 26:18And he said, Go into the city to such a man,

and say unto him, The Master saith, My time is at hand;

I will keep the passover at thy house with my disciples.

Matthew 26:19And the disciples did as Jesus had appointed them;

and they made ready the passover.

Matthew 26:20Now when the even was come, he sat down with the twelve.

 

This meeting should take place just after sunset,

on the appointed date.

This means that it is at the start of day, bearing in mind that

biblical days start evening and morning.

This year it will be Sunday Evening March 24th .

 

If the meeting is to include a meal,

this should take place before the little ceremony.

I think that lamb would be the preferred meat

for this occasion, but it can be anything.

 

We need to obtain wine and unleavened bread Ė something like Matzos, Rivita.

Of course you could make a little dough, with flour and water,

and a little salt.

Make it of a consistency, that it can be rolled out.

Then bake it until it is cooked.

 

A small amount of wine should be poured into the glasses, wine glasses are fine, but any glass or cup will do.

The reason for saying this is that we do not want to bless the entire bottle of wine.

This would be inappropriate.

Similarly only the piece of unleavened bread that needs

to be blessed, not the whole box, of for example matzos.

 

A small plate should be used to put the unleavened bread on.

 

The bread and wine could be covered with a suitable cloth,

it does not have to be done, but it is nice to do so.

 

It is advisable to have the unleavened bread whole,

thatis at this time unbroken, and covered with a cloth.

 

We should only use a small amount of bread, and wine so that we do not end throwing left overs in the bin, simply out of respect, for what is being represented. Left overs could be immediately consumed afterwards.

 

We should start the meeting, with a little prayer asking Godís blessing on the meeting.

 

Several verses of relevant scriptures should be read.

Each person should participate in this in turn, so that everything

is done decently and in order,

as scripture demands we do things.

 

1 Corinthians 14:40 Let all things be done decently and in order.

 

In the case where foot washing is appropriate,

and by this I mean,

that there are ladies to wash the feet of ladies,

and men to wash the feet of men.

Of course husbands and wives could wash each otherís feet,

if that is the only thing possible.

This should be done before the blessing of the bread and wine.

 

For the past several years,

we have not actually done any foot washing,

as it has not been appropriate.

 

It is a matter of showing an attitude of humility,

which we should be doing every day of the year.

If someone has a foot infection,

it would probably be wisest for that person not to have their

feet washed, simply from the point of view of hygiene.

 

A separate bowl should be used for each person,

again for the sake of hygiene.

 

It is also a good idea for people to have their own towels used to dry their feet after they are washed.

This also makes for good hygiene.

 

This is the first part of the meeting, if is going to be included.

The scriptural basis is:

 

John 13:4 He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself.

John 13:5 After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciplesí feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded.

 

In this case this only needs to be done with water.

No soap is required.

This is a symbolic act of an attitude of service in practical reality.

This was done in the Middle East,

when this had far more significance than it does for us today.

The primary point is that we should always have a foot washing

attitude, by our unselfish serving of others under

all circumstances.

 

Philippians 2:3Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory;

but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.

 

Of course steps should be taken to ensure that decency is practiced,

and no one is offended by this act.

For example ladies and men should carry this ceremony separately.

 

Comment: This is not a meeting where the scriptures read should be discussed at this time.

This can be done after the meeting.

There is no minister in charge, but of course someone,

who is more mature can help things to proceed smoothly.

 

Everyone should pay attention because of the occasion,

but also because next year you might be the most mature person,

and you might be the one who needs to see that everything proceeds smoothly. Ideally the bible readings should be shared by everyone consecutively.

 

It needs to be very clear that the bread and wine are symbols,

which represent Christ.

They do not under go any change, which makes them into the literal body and blood of Christ, as some churches teach.

 

Therefore the prayer should state that the bread represents the body of Christ, and the wine represents the blood of Christ shed for us.

 

A blessing should be prayed over the bread,

while it is still covered.

Then while it is covered gently break it into small pieces through

the cloth. The reason for this procedure is simply hygiene.

As mentioned after the blessing, the bread is passed around,

on the plate for each member to select a piece.

 

When that has been eaten,

A blessing should be prayed over the glasses of wine,

and then each person can drink the wine.

It is preferable to have separate glasses, again strictly from the point of hygiene.

 

In the case of a mixed group it is suggested,

that a male takes the lead, simply because this follows

the scriptural example.

There is no other reason.

What follows is a list of suitable scriptures.

Of course others could be used.

In view that some might not have bibles,

we are quoting the entire scriptures so that all is required

is to print copies of this document.

 

The document is broken up into sections of verses,

so that everyone can participate,

by reading one set of verses, and the next person,

reading some verses etc.

 

Comment:

We can see that the Passover originated at the time of the Exodus,

of the nation of Israel from Egypt. It is mirrored today as follows.

Pharoah represents Satan, and his enslaving world government,

which persecutes us.

 

Of course today we are in dire need of the protection,

from the very sad situation, with which we are surrounded.

 

2 Corinthians 4:4In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ,

who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

 

The original Passover was from the suffering,

which the Israelites suffered under Pharoah.

 

Obedience and the shedding of blood was required for their physical salvation.

It remains the same today Christ shed his blood for us, so that we can have spiritual salvation, deliverance from our suffering today.

We now need to listen to and obey Him.

 

The Old Testament Passover and the New Testament Passover,

were kept on a specific day. The fourteenth day of the first month, of the Jewish year, which is called Nisan.

The Passover is always on the 14th of this month.

 

The Passover Lamb represented Christ, Himself,

and looked forward, thousands of years to the time,

when Christ actually came and was sacrificed for us.

 

Exodus 12:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying,

Exodus 12:2 This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.

Exodus 12:3Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house:

Exodus 12:4And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb.

Exodus 12:5Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:

 

Exodus 12:6And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly

of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening.

Exodus 12:7 And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it.

Exodus 12:8 And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.

Exodus 12:9Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water,

but roast with fire; his head with his legs,

and with the purtenance thereof.

 

Exodus 12:10 And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning;

and that which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire.

Exodus 12:11And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded,

your shoes on your feet,

and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste:

it is the LORDíS passover.

Exodus 12:12For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night,

and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast;

and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment:

I am the LORD.

 

Exodus 12:13 And the blood shall be to you for a token upon

the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood,

I will pass over you, and the plague shall not

be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.

Exodus 12:14And this day shall be unto you for a memorial;

and ye shall keepit a feast to the LORD throughout your generations;

ye shall keep it a feastby an ordinance for ever.

Exodus 12:15Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread;

even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses:

for whosoever eateth leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day,

that soul shall be cut off from Israel.

 

Exodus 12:16And in the first day there shall be an holy convocation,

and in the seventh day there shall be an holy convocation to you;

no manner of work shall be done in them,

save that which every man must eat,

that only may be done of you.

Exodus 12:17And ye shall observe the feast of unleavened bread;

for in this selfsame day have I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt:

therefore shall ye observe this day in your generations

by an ordinance for ever.

Exodus 12:18 In the first month, on the fourteenth day

of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread,

until the one and twentieth day of the month at even.

 

Exodus 12:19Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for whosoever eateth that which is leavened, even that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a stranger, or born in the land.

Exodus 12:20Ye shall eat nothing leavened; in all your habitations shall ye eat unleavened bread.

 

Comment: This is a personal comment.

I do not feel that we have to put the leaven out of our houses at this time. Those who feel led to do so should do so, but I am certainly not laying down the law in one way or the other.

It is also something that might not be possible, when you live with a person, who does not have the same beliefs as you do.

Therefore do not create problems by insisting on this.

 

The important thing is to consider that we are removing sin

out of our lives.

 

I have been in situations where so much energy was spent trying to take leaven out of houses, that there was not enough energy left to even attend meetings. I feel that in those cases the purpose was missed.

 

We have to come out of sin, and avoid it.

 

If we have hard feelings towards another, we should resolve these differences.

This is far more important than throwing out some leavened products.

Again this requires wisdom, as some who reject us,

are best left alone and prayed for.

You do not want to un-necessarily stir up a hornetsí nests.

 

We are trying to grasp the seriousness and importance of Christís sacrifice.

 

We are now reading some verses at this critical time in the life of Christ.

John 14:1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God,

believe also in me.

John 14:2 In my Fatherís house are many mansions:

if it were not so, I would have told you.

I go to prepare a place for you.

John 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you,

I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am,

there ye may be also.

 

John 14:4And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

John 14:7If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

John 14:8Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father,

and it sufficeth us.

 

John 14:9Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you,

and yet hast thou not known me, Philip?

he that hath seen me hath seen the Father;

and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?

John 14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father,

and the Father in me?

the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself:

but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

John 14:11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me:

or else believe me for the very worksí sake.

 

John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me,

the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do;

because I go unto my Father.

John 14:13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name,

that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

John 14:14If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

 

John 14:15If ye love me, keep my commandments.

John 14:16And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter,

that he may abide with you for ever;

John 14:17Even the Spirit of truth;

whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not,

neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you,

and shall be in you.

 

John 14:18I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

John 14:19Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me:

because I live, ye shall live also.

John 14:20At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father,

and ye in me, and I in you.

 

John 14:21He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them,

he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved

of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

John 14:22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord,

how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us,

and not unto the world?

John 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him,

If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will

love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

 

John 14:24He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings:

and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Fatherís which sent me.

John 14:25These things have I spoken unto you,

being yet present with you.

John 14:26But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost,

whom the Father will send in my name,

he shall teach you all things, and bring all things

to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

 

John 14:27Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you:

not as the world giveth, give I unto you.

Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

John 14:28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away,

and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice,

because I said, I go unto the Father:

for my Father is greater than I.

John 14:29And now I have told you before it come to pass,

that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.

 

John 14:30Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince

of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.

John 14:31 But that the world may know that I love the Father;

and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do.

Arise, let us go hence.

 

John 15:1I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.

John 15:2Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away:

and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it,

that it may bring forth more fruit.

John 15:3Now ye are clean through the word which

I have spoken unto you.

 

John 15:4Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself,

except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

John 15:5I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me,

and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit:

for without me ye can do nothing.

John 15:6If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch,

and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire,

and they are burned.

 

John 15:7If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you,

ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

John 15:8Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit;

so shall ye be my disciples.

John 15:9As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you:

continue ye in my love.

 

John 15:10 If ye keep my commandments,

ye shall abide in my love;

even as I have kept my Fatherís commandments,

and abide in his love.

John 15:11 These things have I spoken unto you,

that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.

John 15:12 This is my commandment,

That ye love one another, as I have loved you.

 

John 15:13 Greater love hath no man than this,

that a man lay down his life for his friends.

John 15:14Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.

John 15:15Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth

not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that

I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.

John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you,

and ordained you,

that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain:

that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

 

John 15:17 These things I command you, that ye love one another.

John 15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me

before it hated you.

John 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own:

but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you

out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

 

John 15:20 Remember the word that I said unto you,

The servant is not greater than his lord.

If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you;

if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.

John 15:21 But all these things will they do unto you for my nameís sake,

because they know not him thatsent me.

John 15:22If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin:

but now they have no cloke for their sin.

 

John 15:23He that hateth me hateth my Father also.

John 15:24If I had not done among them the works which none other man did,

they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me

and my Father.

John 15:25 But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled

that is written in their law,

They hated me without a cause.

 

John 15:26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you

from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father,

he shall testify of me:

John 15:27 And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me

from the beginning.

 

We have to be careful to realize the seriousness of the sacrifice

thus Paul said: Examine your motives, see that you have a right attitude,

as you come to this holy service.

 

1 Corinthians 11:28But let a man examine himself,

and so let him eat of that bread,

and drink of that cup.

 

We need to be aware that we can never feel ďworthy.

We also do not need to try to work up the feeling

that we are utterly useless and a failure.

 

It is exceedingly sobering to realize, as we have been shown in the last

couple of years, the importance of the ĎBody of Christí.

We are told that it is important to recognize that there

are other members of the body of Christ.

Not to discern this has consequences of sickness and ultimately death.

We should pray for discernment on this very difficult matter.

 

1 Corinthians 11:29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily,

eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lordís body.

1 Corinthians 11:30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you,

and many sleep.

 

All that is required is that we participate in this meeting in a genuinely

humble manner.

It is Christ who has made us worthy, to participate in the Passover.

It is nothing that we have done ourselves.

It does not make us any better than anyone else.

 

Whatever we have and are, is because of the Mercy

of our Eternal God.

We have to be very aware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which was hypocrisy.

 

Luke 12:1. . .Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.

 

Let us now look at how Christ was rejected and treated.

 

Isaiah 52:13 Behold, my servant shall deal prudently, he shall be exalted and extolled, and be very high.

Isaiah 52:14As many were astonished at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men:

Isaiah 52:15 So shall he sprinkle many nations; the kings shall shut their mouths at him: for that which had not been told them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they consider.

 

Isaiah 53:1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?

Isaiah 53:2For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.

Isaiah 53:3He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

 

Isaiah 53:4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.

Isaiah 53:5But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

Isaiah 53:6All we like sheep have gone astray;

we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

 

Isaiah 53:7He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.

Isaiah 53:8He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.

Isaiah 53:9And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death;because he had done no violence,

neither was any deceit in his mouth.

 

Isaiah 53:10 Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.

Isaiah 53:11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied:

by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many;

for he shall bear their iniquities.

Isaiah 53:12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

 

Regarding the Passover this is what Paul said:

 

1 Corinthians 10:16 The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?

1 Corinthians 10:17 For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread.

 

Now let us move to the time when Christ instituted the New Testament Passover.

 

Christ gave us an example of how to conduct ourselves.

 

1 Peter 2:19For this is thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God

endure grief, suffering wrongfully.

1 Peter 2:20 For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults,

ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it,

ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God.

1 Peter 2:21 For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also

suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:

 

1 Peter 2:22 Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:

1 Peter 2:23 Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:

1 Peter 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree,

that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness:

by whose stripes ye were healed.

1 Peter 2:25 For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.

 

Now some of Jesusí own words:

 

John 6:32Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven.

John 6:33 For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.

John 6:34 Then said they unto him, Lord,

evermore give us thisbread.

 

John 6:35 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.

John 6:36 But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me,

and believe not.

John 6:37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

 

John 6:38 For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.

John 6:39 And this is the Fatherís will which hath sent me, that of all which

he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.

John 6:40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.

 

Matthew 26:20Now when the even was come,

he sat down with the twelve.

Matthew 26:21 And as they did eat, he said, Verily I say unto you,

that one of you shall betray me.

Matthew 26:22And they were exceeding sorrowful,

and began every one of them to say unto him, Lord, is it I?

 

Matthew 26:23And he answered and said,

He that dippeth his hand with me in the dish,

the same shall betray me.

Matthew 26:24The Son of man goeth as it is written of him:

but woe unto that man by whom

the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good for that man

if he had not been born.

Matthew 26:25Then Judas, which betrayed him, answered and said,

Master, is it I?

He said unto him, Thou hast said.

 

Matthew 26:26 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.

Note: Ďisí can be translated represents.

 

At this point ask a blessing on the bread, recognizing that it represents

the body of Christ which was broken for us. A simple prayer will do.

Break the bread and pass the broken pieces, on the plate to those

in attendance for them to take a piece from the plate.

Eat the bread and then cover the remaining bread with a cloth.

 

Remove the cloth from glasses of wine.

As a blessing on the wine and give thanks for Christís blood,

which was shed for us so that we could be saved.

Again a simple prayer will do.

Give a glass of wine to all in attendance.

Drink the wine.††

 

Matthew 26:27 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them,

saying, Drink ye all of it;

Matthew 26:28For this is my blood of the new testament,

which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

 

Return the glasses to the table and cover them.

The only reason for covering the bread and wine, is simply for things

to be done decently and in order. There is no other significance.

 

Christ then made the following comments.

 

Matthew 26:29But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit

of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Fatherís kingdom.

 

Having done the above, if it is possible you can sing a hymn of praise

and thanks, because of the following verse.

 

Matthew 26:30 And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into

the mount of Olives.

 

Of course you can sing any suitable hymn, which you decide,

just like you can choose different verses of scripture if you so desire.

This is simply a guide, that is all.

 

I am putting the words of an appropriate hymn,

so that you can read them if you are unable to have one to sing.

My Lord, what love is this (Amazing Love) -By Graham Kendrick

 

My Lord, what love is this,

That pays so dearly,

That I, the guilty one,

May go free!

Amazing love, O what sacrifice,

The Son of God given for me.

My debt He pays, and my death He dies,

That I might live,

That I might live.

 

An so they watched Him die

Despised, rejected;

But oh, the blood He shed

Flowed for me!

Amazing love, O what sacrifice,

The Son of God given for me.

My debt He pays, and my death He dies,

That I might live,

That I might live.

 

And now this love of Christ

Shall flow like rivers;

Come wash your guilt away,

Live again!

Amazing love, O what sacrifice,

The Son of God given for me.

My debt He pays, and my death He dies,

That I might live,

That I might live.

The Passover is followed by 7 daysof eating unleavened bread.

 

Exodus 34:18The feast of unleavened bread shalt thou keep.

Seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, as I commanded thee,

in the time of the month Abib: for in the month Abib thou camest out from Egypt.

 

Comment: note it is not just a matter of not eating leavened products,

but rather eating some unleavened bread daily.

The first and the last day of the Feast of unleavened bread are Holy days,

when no paid work should be done.

Of course these circumstances can be completely out of our control.

Therefore I am not telling anyone to give up their means of supporting

themselves and their families.

 

If additional scriptures are required

John chapters 13 to the 17th chapter of John.

 

Amen
