The Lord’s Supper – Reality not Ritual

Subject: False Teachers???

Hi,

I came upon your site.  It is wonderful that you devote time and energy for our Lord and Savior.  However, I am quite perplexed as to where you find your authority in stating the names of “false teachers”.  Who are you to make that determination?  I would be VERY careful in doing so. 

Wondering also, how and where you get the idea that we are not to participate in the Lord’s Supper.  I do a lot of studying of the Bible and NEVER heard this in my life, and I’m 58 years old.  Please let me know where you get this idea.  Thank you!

God Bless,

Diane

“Then Jesus said to them again, Peace to you. As My Father has sent Me, even so I send you” (John 20:21 MKJV).

Diane, what good does your “Lord’s Supper” do you when you are without discernment and reject righteous judgment through those whom Christ sends? Your ceremonies are pagan superstition, not the faith of Christ. 

John 6:51-58 MKJV
(51)  I am the Living Bread which came down from Heaven. If anyone eats of this Bread, he shall live forever. And truly the bread that I will give is My flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
(52)  Then the Jews argued with one another, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat?
(53)  Then Jesus says to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man, and drink His blood, you do not have life in yourselves.
(54)  Whoever partakes of My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.
(55)  For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed.
(56)  He who partakes of My flesh and drinks My blood dwells in Me, and I in him.
(57)  As the living Father has sent Me, and I live through the Father, so he who partakes of Me, even he shall live by Me.
(58)  This is the Bread which came down from Heaven, not as your fathers ate the manna, and died; he who partakes of this Bread shall live forever.

If you believe Jesus Christ was speaking of a ceremony or ritual, you have yet to meet Him or learn anything substantial about Him, despite your years.

Jesus was speaking of connection through faith, matched with obedience. He was talking reality, not religion; realism and not pretense; life and not death with its form; substance and not mere symbolism.

And well you ought to be careful about judging others, seeing you still have the beam in your eye and aren’t appointed to make judgments.

If you had the faith of Christ, you would be able to see and would rejoice in the Truth rather than reject it. You wouldn’t be perplexed about Jesus and His servants identifying false teachers. Being a follower of false teachers, their judgment falls on you as well. 

Jude 1:14-19 EMTV
(14)  Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men, saying, “Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints,
(15)  to execute judgment against all, and to convict all the ungodly among them about all their ungodly deeds which they have committed impiously, and about all the harsh words which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.”
(16)  These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaks puffed up words, flattering people to gain advantage.
(17)  But you, beloved, remember the words which were spoken beforehand by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ,
(18)  how they told you that in the last time there would be mockers, walking according to their own ungodly lusts.
(19)  These are those who cause divisions, worldly, not having the Spirit.

Diane, you are yet dead in your sins, blind to the enemy’s devices and to the Lord’s glory. We’re here to change that for His sake – and yours.

Todd White’s Self-Generated, UnGodly Love
From: Kaleb To: The Path of Truth Sent: Tuesday, September 20, 2016 6:37 PM Subject: Judging Matthew 7:1-3, 16 1 Samuel 16:7 1 John 4:1-3 2 John 1:7 Just because a man asks for money, heals in an unconventional way, loves people unconditionally, or is loved by others does not make him a false prophet. Wigglesworth, White, and Johnson all preach the gospel and admit Jesus came in the flesh. I've also met Todd White personally. He gets persecuted all the time. His goal is that we all love each other, doesn't mean it happens. Luke 9:50 "Do not stop him" Jesus said "Whoever is not against you is for you." I love you and I pray God heals your heart from any pain caused to you and renews you wholly. From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Kaleb Sent: Tuesday, September 27, 2016 7:05 AM Subject: Re: Judging Kaleb, the Scriptures you cite declare exactly the point you’re missing. For example: “But the LORD said to Samuel, ‘Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the LORD sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the LORD looks on the heart’” (1 Samuel 16:7 ESV). You’re judging Todd White by appearance – not his physical appearance, but according to what you see of his works and love. You’re not seeing the heart. Yes, Todd has love, but not the love of God from a pure heart. It’s a self-generated love, also known as False Love - Satan’s Last Stronghold. You also quote: 1 John 4:1-3 ESV ...
Willpower Posing as Faith
Many professors of Christ proclaim they are believing for their healing of deadly diseases such as cancer. Why must one believe for something God gladly gives to His children who obey Him? Must I believe for the air that I breathe? What is wrong with this picture?
Confused by Calvin Doctrine
From: Jennifer To: The Path of Truth Sent: Sunday, October 16, 2016 10:19 PM Subject: Fw: John MacArthur, Calvinism Hello, My name is Jennifer and I am reaching out for some help because I am confused. Last February I came across a man on youtube talking about Christianity and the word-faith movement. I started watching his videos and I contacted him for some more information. I just felt a peace when listening to him speak. His name is Justin Peters and he runs a small ministry called the Justin Peter's Ministry. He responded and we discussed election and the area of pre-destination. I became very upset because I was under the impression that there is no biblical proof of pre destination and if there is, according to Justin Peter's,  why should anyone bother if their not in the selected group? He told me as for election, it is a very deep subject but it is thoroughly biblical. He said, "It need not be anything to fear, though. Take a deep breath, it's ok." He said there is an excellent DVD on this topic entitled, Amazing Grace: A History and Theology of Calvinism. He suggested the websites of John MacArthur and Susan Heck, and for me to get a John MacArthur Bible as soon as possible. He says he has this Bible himself. He kindly recommended a doctrinally sound church in my area of Texas. I was so relieved because I felt he intercepted just in time and I didn't see John MacArthur's name on any list for false prophets of today. Then one day I saw his name thrown in...
