Holy Communion or the Lord’s Supper is a Christian rite that is considered a sacrament in most churches, and as an ordinance in others. According to the New Testament, the rite was instituted by Jesus Christ during the Last Supper; giving his disciples bread and wine during the Passover meal, Jesus commanded his followers to “do this in memory of me” while referring to the bread as “my body” and the cup of wine as “the new covenant in my blood” (Source: Wikipedia.)
When do we have to eat the Lord’s Supper? Is it correct to have it on Sunday? Unfortunately, it’s totally wrong.
Second century Gentile churches followed two calendar traditions concerning Passover. Almost all of the churches in Asia (where Paul devoted much of his ministry [1 Cor 16:8, 19; Acts 19:10, 26), as well as churches in Asia Minor, Cilicia, Syria, Judea (until c. 135) and Mesopotamia, observed Passover in accordance with the Jewish calendar, on the fourteenth day of the first month, the month of Nissan (Eusebius, Hist. eccl. 5.23.1; 5:24:1; Athanasius, Syn. 2; Epiphanius, Pan. 70.9.8-9; 10.3-5; Theodoret, Haer. Fab. Comp. 3.4; see Cantalamessa 1993:128b).1 Far from being a minor schismatic group, Gentile Christians who celebrated Passover on Nissan 14 stretched across a vast geographic region that represented the heartland of apostolic Christianity.Source: The Passover Controversy in the East and West (https://static1.squarespace.com/static/500dc7e1c4aac913a35a0c2c/t/541a54d4e4b09b50ed979f44/1411011796553/Passover+Controversy+in+the+East+and+West.pdf)
Jesus and the disciples kept the Passover by eating the bread and drinking the wine.
On the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover?” … While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.” Then he [Jesus] took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. 28 This is my blood of the covenant [the New Covenant in Luke 22:20], which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins….” (Matthew 26:17-28)
In fact, the term “Holy Communion” or “Eucharist” is not a correct one. The correct term for this rite is the Passover.
Some might think it’s a feast of the Old Testament. However, Jesus established the Passover of the New Testament with the bread and the cup of wine:
Jesus promised the forgiveness of sins while keeping the Passover and declared it as the New Covenant.
And he said to them, “I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer….” And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” (Luke 22:15; 20)
He even said, “I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover.”
Today, only the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) keeps the Passover of the New Covenant (not of the Old Covenant) by following the teachings of Jesus.
The Passover was abolished in 325AD. According to the prophecy of the Bible, Christ Ahnsahnghong restored the Passover of the New Covenant.
Holy Communion celebrated by most churches is a mere man-made rule. We cannot enter the kingdom of heaven by keeping a man-made teaching. Instead, we should keep the Passover of the new covenant to enter the kingdom of heaven.
The Passover is the teaching of the Bible and the feast of God. If you read Leviticus 23, you will find the feasts of God. Among God’s feasts, the New Covenant Passover is to be observed on the evening of January 14 of the holy calendar. According to the teachings of the Bible, the Church of God keeps the Passover holy on March 22 in the Gregorian calendar, which is the evening of January 14 in the holy calendar.
Ordinary churches keep the sacrament meeting similarly to the Church of God, but they do not keep it according to the teachings of the Bible.
However, the Passover is precisely dated in the Bible and is a feast of God that must be observed on the evening of January 14 in the holy calendar.
Only Those who keep the New Covenant Passover correctly can receive God’s blessing, eternal life, that contained in the Passover.
The Biblical name of the last day Jesus sent His disciples before He was crucified is the Passover of the New Covenant. Not Holy Communion or the Lord’s Supper. and the date of the Passover is the evening of January 14 of the sacred calendar (Jewish calendar).
Thanks to Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother for allowing us so much blessing and the world through having brought back the truth of salvation, the restoration of the new covenant for our souls. Let us keep the new covenant Passover with all our mind and hearts, being changed all together on the day our Father come and we return to heaven!
