BTC Phase 4: Introduction & Table of Contents
Description: In Phase 4 of our BTC Guided Study Experience, you will find several lessons which will give you a fascinating overview of Communion as well as a suggested script which can be used for conducting your own personal or group service.
Communion includes the remembrance of the Sacrifice of Jesus and His words from the Cross, “Father Forgive Them.” But this ceremony also reminds participants of the Commandment which Jesus gave each of us, to love and forgive, such as what we see reflected in these verses of Scripture:
“But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.” Luke 6: 27-28 (KJV)
Therefore, this Sacrament as a regular practice can help us to clear our soul of any lingering unforgiveness, tare or hindering element which needs to be corrected and healed. We acknowledge in the process, that whatever is hard to do by our flesh, the Spirit in us can help us accomplish.
“If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.” Matthew 17:20 (KJV)
At Communion we also pray for one another and offer ourselves to each other for support; sometimes compassionate fellowship can really help someone who is struggling with residual unforgiveness, to “move the mountain” from their heart.
“For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.” Mark 11:23 (KJV)
For additional Study Material on the subject of Communion, you will also find the article by Pastor G. Evan Newmyer, “A Communion/ Passover Study” which will give you an in-depth look at the history and purpose of Communion as well as the connection between Passover and the service we conduct today.
