Scripture in Feet Washing JOHN 13:12-15 12 So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you? 13 Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am. 14 If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet. 15 For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.
Scripture on Communion LUKE 22:14-19 14 And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him. 15 And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer: 16 For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God. 17 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide [it] among yourselves: 18 For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come. 19 And he 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. 20 Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup [is] the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.
COMMUNION The term Communion is derived from Latin communio (sharing in common).  The corresponding term in Greek is κοινωνία, which is often translated as "fellowship". In Christianity, the basic meaning of the term communion is an especially close relationship of Christians, as individuals or as a Church, with God and with other Christians.
The word Commune Commune is to talk to, commune with, something that you can speak to and itll speak back to you. Thats communing. A wafer cannot speak back. So, really, the real communion is the Holy Spirit speaking back. When you ask Him, then He speaks back; that is correct communion. This is a memorial to take of His crucifixion and His resurrection COMMUNION 62-0204
The Roman Catholics Now, Rome does not call it communion. They call it "mass." It's a holy mass. They don't take communion; they take a mass... takes the real meaning from communion. A "mass" means, "hoping." They take a mass, hoping that in doing this in the mass, that God will forgive them of their sins, by taking the literal body of Christ, which the priest turns to the Body and the Blood of Christ, taking that, hoping that God will omit their sins by doing so. It's a mass. (KEY.TO.THE.DOOR_ JEFF.IN V-12 N-6 SUNDAY_ 62-1007)
The Protestants The Protestants call it "communion." "Communion" means "thanksgiving. The Catholic is taking a mass, in the mass hoping that God forgives them of their evil doing. The Protestant takes it with thanksgiving for what's already done with the communion with God: communing with Him, that it's already done. The Catholic is hoping it's done; the Protestant says it's already done. The Catholic is wondering if his sins is forgiven; the Protestant is confessing that they are forgiven, that he is free.

Remembering Christ In observing Communion we are remembering Christ and all that He has done for us in his life, death and resurrection : Luke 22:19 - And he 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.
Proclaiming His Coming In observing Communion we are proclaiming His death until He comes. It is, a statement of our faith: 1 Corinthians 11:26 - For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes.
Partaking of each other When we observe Communion we show our participation in the body of Christ. His life becomes our life and we become members of each other: I CORINTHIANS 10:16-17 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? 17 For we being many are ONE bread, and ONE body: for we are all partakers of that one bread.
Partaking of His Divine Nature In the New Testament, the word is applied, according to the context, to communion, sharing or fellowship with: the Divine Nature II PETER 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
Sharing His Suffering In the New Testament, the word is applied, according to the context, to communion, sharing or fellowship with: his sufferings PHILIPPIANS 3:10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;
Sharing with His Glory In the New Testament, the word is applied, according to the context, to communion, sharing or fellowship with: his future glory I PETER 5:1 ¶ The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed:
Communing with the Holy Spirit In the New Testament, the word is applied, according to the context, to communion, sharing or fellowship with: the Holy Spirit II CORINTHIANS 13:14 14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.
Partaking with His Human Nature In the New Testament, the word is applied, according to the context, to communion, sharing or fellowship with: the bodily human nature all have in common HEBREWS 2:14 14 ¶ Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
Partaking in the Ministry In the New Testament, the word is applied, according to the context, to communion, s haring or fellowship with: a work partnership LUKE 5:10- And so was also James, and John, the sons of Zebedee, which were partners with Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not; from henceforth thou shalt catch men. II CORINTHIANS 8:23- Whether any do enquire of Titus, he is my partner and fellowhelper concerning you: or our brethren be enquired of, they are the messengers of the churches, and the glory of Christ.
The Materials in Communion Now, I do not believe that kosher bread should be substituted for a cracker. I believe that it should be a holy unleavened bread, the type of the unleavened bread that was made in Egypt. (WMB, QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS.title JEFF.IN COD 59-0628E)
The materials in Communion And I believe that the Blood should not be grape juice, but it should be wine. Grape juice sours and spoils as it gets old. But wine gets better and stronger as it gets old; it never loses its strength. And the Blood of Christ doesnt sour and spoil; as it gets older, it gets stronger and better as the days goes by to the believer. And it is a literal wine and bread. Communion bread should be made by people whos dedicated themselves and consecrated themselves to God. (WMB, QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS.title JEFF.IN COD 59-0628E)
Open Communion Now, It is not a closed communion. It is absolutely for every Christian believer. God dont have the line drawed between Baptist, and Methodist, and so forth. We are all by one Spirit baptized into one Body, and were fellow citizens of the Kingdom of God.
Communion mustnt be a Tradition You dont take the Lords supper by a tradition. You take it because its the love of God in your heart, in keeping the commandments of God. See? Thats what you take it for. So if you dont take it in sincerity, just its a tradition, Well, our church observes communion once every Sunday, or once every month, or twice a year, and you go up, say, Well, its my time, andand then take the communion, why, its a stink to God. See? Thats just a tradition. (COMMUNION.title TUCSON.AZ V-8 N-4 65-1212)
Communion mustnt be a Tradition Youve got to be sincere. God wants the depths of your heart. You remember, the very God that brought you here on earth is the One youre serving. See? Youre doing this because He said so, because its His order. Then we want to come up with deepness and sincerity, knowing that by Gods grace that we have been saved. And we love Him and we feel His Presence, and we see It change our lives. Our whole being is changed. We re different people. We dont live like we used to; we dont think like we used to. (COMMUNION.title TUCSON.AZ V-8 N-4 65-1212)
Communion is a Christian Requirement Every Christian should take Communion. Its your duty. Its a showdown. See? Jesus said, If you dont take it, you have no part with Me. See? But he that eateth and drinketh unworthily eats and drinks damnation to himself. That is, if youre still out with the world and doing things of the world, and people see you taking Communion, youre doing wrong. Youre only bringing disgrace to you, and itll only harm you. It isnt thatthat itll harm God; itll harm you. And so a person should examine theirselves. (WHAT.DOES.THOU.HERE.title JEFF.IN 59-0301E)
Whos not allowed to take Communion But, when it comes to a person like that, a immoral person trying to make love to our wives, or--or insult our daughters, or, you know, something another like that, or do something immorally around her, or taking our little boys out and making perverts out of them, or something, those things should be taken up, and then that fellow should be excommunicated from the fellowship and not permitted to take communion with it, because we're not supposed to do that. We're not. "If any eats unworthily, is guilty of the Blood and body of the Lord," on that person. QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS_ JEFF.IN COD THURSDAY_ 61-0112)
Examine Yourselves When observing Communion we take time to examine ourselves: 1 Corinthians 11:28 - A man ought to examine himself before he eats of the bread and drinks of the cup.
Examine Yourselves But he that eateth and drinketh unworthily eats and drinks damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. (1 Cor 11:29) That is, if youre still out with the world and doing things of the world, and people see you taking Communion, youre doing wrong. Youre only bringing disgrace to you, and itll only harm you. It isnt that itll harm God; itll harm you. And so a person should examine theirselves. (WHAT.DOES.THOU.HERE.title JEFF.IN 59-0301E)
Repentance Before Communion Before we approach this sacred moment, you ask God to search your life. And if Youve done anything thats not right, say Lord, forgive me for it. I dont mean to do it. Ill make it right if You reveal it to me. Said, When you come together, tarry one for another. Lets wait on one another and pray for one another. We want to take this Communion. And if we dont do it, we have no part with Him. (KEY.TO.THE.DOOR 62-1007)
Tarry for one another Now, it said, "When you come together, tarry one with the other. "Tarry" means "to wait," wait on each other. And let's do that now. I'll pray for you. If you know anything that you've done wrong, say, "God, forgive me. I didn't mean that. And if You'll help me from this night on, I won't do it again. I mean it, Lord, I won't do it again if You'll just forgive me. And upon my confession 'I believe You have forgiven me,' I go to take the body of Christ, feeling in my heart that You forgive me for all my sin." I pray then for your secret sin; you pray for mine, that maybe something we don't know about, that we won't come together condemned with the world. ( COMMUNION.SERVICE_ JEFF.IN SUNDAY_ 63-0707E)
Song Koro: Panginoon, Narito ang puso kong bukas, Ba't ako maglilihim sa Iyo, Batid Mo ang lahat sa buhay ko, Kaluluwa ko, lagi nang naghahanap sa Iyo, Ang tanging hangad ng puso ko, ay paglingkuran Ka. Aking itataas ang Ngalan Mo Hesus; Pagka't dakila Ka, di ka nag-iiba; Kaluwalhatian mo, ay sapat sa buhay ko; Itakwil man ako ng mundong ito (ulitin ang Koro) Sa aking pag-iisa, ay naaalala Ka; Ang kalooban Mo, ay binubulay ko; Magpupuri sa Iyo, di lang sa awit kong ito Itakwil man ako ng mundong ito (ulitin ang Koro)
Opening Prayer Now, lets just bow our heads and pray. You pray for me silently while I pray for you. Father, as weve gathered around the table now to take this representation of Thy broken body, we pray that if there be sin in our midst, Lord, forgive us. You said, When you come together, tarry one for the other. God, if theres a sin in this congregation anywhere, I pray that the Blood of Jesus Christ will separate that man from his sin, or that woman, boy or girl. And, Father, I pray for myself, that You will separate me from every doubt, every sin, every unbelief… We know that unbelief is sin. Its the only sin there is, He that believeth not is condemned already. And only sin there is, is not to believe the Word of God. And, Father, if theres any unbelief in me, forgive me, O God, which there is much, and I pray that You forgive me. Forgive my congregation that Thou has given me tonight, and feed them upon the Word. Grant it. And as we take these little commemorations of the broken body of Him Who is raised from the dead and alive forevermore among us, may we receive communion from Him, Lord, the communing of the Holy Spirit. Grant it, Father; we ask in Jesus Name. Amen.
Presenting the Bread These little parcels that is kosher bread made without lard, seasoning, and so forth, which represents the body of the Lord is not round; its broke in all pieces. Its because that it means His broken body that was broken for us. And may God grant His blessings to everyone that eats it. Now, it is not the body; it only represents the body. I have no power, no one else does, to make it anything but bread. God alone. And thats what He told us, to eat this bread and drink this cup of wine. Now let us bow our head.
Prayer for the Bread Most holy God, Whose servants we are, in the Name of Jesus Christ sanctify this bread for its intended use to make us, as we receive it, we remember that our Lord was crucified; and His body, precious and holy as it was, was mingled with stripes and thorns and nails, for us, that through His riven body came forth the Spirit that gives us Eternal Life. May we, Lord, as we eat this, have journeying grace, as Israel did forty years in the wilderness, and not a feeble one among them. Father God, grant this, as we pray You sanctify this bread, kosher bread, for The Bible said, 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. [Deacons pass the bread]
SERVING THE BREAD MARK 14:22 And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake it, and gave to them, and said, Take, eat: this is my body.
Presenting the Wine The cup of the New Testament, which is the Blood... REMINDS us of that song, Every since by faith I saw that stream Thy flowing wounds supply, redeeming love has been my theme, and shall be till I die. When we the see this blood, grapes, the blood of grapes, I know it represents the Blood that came forth from the Lord Jesus body. May ever who receives this have Eternal Life; may sickness depart out of their bodies; may weariness and feebleness, oppression, may the Devil in every form leave them, that they might have great strength and health and Eternal Life, to let their light shine before this wicked and adulterous generation we live in to glorify God. The Bible said, After He had taken and broke the bread, like manner He took the cup, and when He had supped, saying, This is the cup of the New Testament in My Blood, which is shed for you. May the Lord grant His blessings upon this as we pray.
Prayer for the Wine Heavenly Father, we present to You the fruit of the vine. In the Name of Jesus Christ sanctify it to represent the Blood of Thy Son Jesus, in it we remember that Jesus was Wounded for our transgressions; with His stripes we were healed. And dear God, its to represent that precious Blood of Jesus that cleanses us, which from there came also the Token of the Holy Spirit. I thank Thee, Father, for this symbol. You said, He that eats and drinks this has Everlasting Life, and I will raise him up again at the end time. We pray, Father, that You cleanse our hearts together, that we will be worthy, knowing that in ourselves we are not worthy, but by our faith we are accepting perfectly the righteousness of the Blood of Jesus Christ. Grant, Lord, that Life will come to us, Eternal Life in great abundance, that we might be able to serve You better. May You sanctify the wine for its intended purpose. May whosoever drinks this wine tonight have strength for the journey that lays ahead. Grant it, Lord. May they be healthy, and strong, and filled with Your Spirit till Jesus comes. Grant these blessings in Jesus Name, we pray. Amen.
SERVING THE WINE MARK 14:23-24 23 And he took the cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them: and they all drank of it. 24 And he said unto them, This is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many.
