Declare the Lord's Death until He Comes (2)

Bible Verses

1 Cor 11:25 Similarly also the cup after they had dined, saying, This cup is the new covenant established in My blood; this do, as often as you drink it, unto the remembrance of Me. (26) For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you declare the Lord's death until He comes.

Words of Ministry

[Part 2 of 2]
The Lord will surely come back again; this is a great comfort to us. It is particularly meaningful when we associate this coming with the Lord's supper. Every week we partake of this supper of the Lord. The church has been partaking of the same supper week after week for nearly two thousand years. This supper still has not passed away. We continue to eat this supper. We wait and wait until the day the Lord comes back. When He comes back, we will no longer eat this supper. When we meet our Lord face to face, this supper will be no more. When we see Him again, we no longer will need to remember Him in this way. Hence, the Lord's supper is for remembering Him and for declaring His death until He comes. We hope that the brothers and sisters will focus their eyes on Him from the very start. When a person remembers the Lord Himself, spontaneously he remembers His death, and when he remembers His death, his eyes will spontaneously be set on the kingdom--the Lord will come again one day and receive us to Himself. The cross always leads to His coming; it always leads to glory. When we remember the Lord, we must lift up our heads and say, "Lord, I want to see Your face; when I see Your face, everything else will fade away." The Lord wants us to remember Him. He wants us to declare His death continually and proclaim His death till He comes.
