Sermon 3: The Lord's Table
By Rev. William H. Grimes
When we take communion, we may see it as a little cracker and a shot glass filled with grape juice. However, it symbolizes much more than that. Ir is simply a symbol of the body and blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. Papists claim that it is a literal reception of the Lord's body and blood, but this is flat out heresy. God has banned cannibalism! "Consubstantiation" as practiced by liberal Lutherans and Episcopalians is also mystical hocus pocus. Papists have "Eucharistic adoration" where idolaters worship a piece of bread! It is NOT Jesus! It IS a mockery! I Corinthians 11:2 says "Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you." These are ORDINANCES. The Bible says absolutely NOTHING about "sacraments!" You will go to Hell if you dare mock God by claiming that "sacraments" do the work of God on command!!! Heresy is what this simply is!!!!!!!!!!
Just like baptism is an outward symbol of an inward transition into a life of Christ, which BABIES CANNOT CHOOSE IN THEIR INFANCY, the Lord's Supper doesn't contain the body and blood of Jesus, and if some atheist loser takes a cookie it is NOT a hostage situation! It IS A SYMBOL AND NOTHING MORE, PAGAN IDOLATERS!!!!!!
"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 when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come." Ye do SHEW the Lord's death, not recreate it and act like cannibals! It is a MEMORIAL, and NOTHING ELSE! Jesus spoke in parables and metaphors, and any idiot can plainly read that it is a SYMBOL except papists and other heretics apparently. The cup was not filled with wine as it is known today, but it did not cause drunkenness since the Bible says to stay away from strong drink, so if you have communion and you use wine or WATER as the Mormons do instead of grape juice, you are simply a HERETIC!
"Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body."
Therefore, eat only if you are of clean mind and spirit! Do NOT take the Lord's Supper if you had premarital sex and did not repent! Do NOT take if you got drunk the night before or engaged in self abuse right before church! GET RIGHT WITH GOD! THERE IS NO MORTAL SIN, THERE IS NO VENIAL SIN, THERE IS NO PURGATORY, THERE IS JUST SIN! THERE IS JUST HEAVEN AND HELL! IF YOU DO NOT REPENT OF YOUR SINFUL WAYS AND YOU DIE WITHOUT HAVING REPENTED AND WALKED AWAY WITHOUT SIN YOU WILL BE DAMNED! SIN IS SIN! NO HERESY, APOSTASY, LUST, FORNICATION, ADULTERY, THEFT, LYING, SELF ABUSE, CURSING, TAKING THE LORD'S NAME IN VAIN, OR ANYTHING ELSE! NO POPERY! WORSHIP ONLY GOD! DO NOT EAT AND DRINK DAMNATION! LET THE COMMUNION PLATE PASS YOU BY IF YOU ARE NOT RIGHT WITH GOD! God's people said AMEN!
