Many get baptized… But do you know what it means? When we are baptized we are baptized into the death of Christ… We are laying our flesh down… We are laying These worldly ways down… We are laying that sinful life style down & When we come up out the water we are to walk in the newness of life, as Christ was raised up into everlasting life… (romans 6:3-7) We are to live for him… We are to pick up our cross (matthew 16:24) , meaning: Everything Jesus died for (sin) we should no longer pursue after that life style… Just as he willingly gave his life for us, we are to willingly turn from sin… Yes I know this is a journey… However you must be fully persuaded in your mind that sin is EVIL and not of God… Many take communion (The bread + juice offered) on 1st Sunday… But do you know what you are doing? It is to remember Christ until he comes, it is showing we are dead to sin… Meaning, you SHOULD NOT BE DRINKING THAT CUP IF YOU ARE WILLINGLY SINNING… The bible says WHOSOEVER EATS THAT BREAD AND DRINKS THAT CUP UNWORTHILY SHALL BE GUILTY OF THE BODY AND BLOOD OF THE LORD… Because u are eating & drinking something not even knowing what it means… & Not only that u are not worthy to drink it… Therefore you are guilty… Meaning… Drinking that juice + eating that bread 1st Sunday when you ARE NOT LIVING for the Lord will take you right under to hell… The scriptures says EXAMINE YOURSELF WHEN DRINKING FROM THAT CUP, AND EATING THAT BREAD… Meaning do a self check… ARE YOU TRULY LIVING FOR GOD? TURNING FROM SIN? LIVING AS THE BIBLE SAYS WE SHOULD LIVE? Because whoever takes communion 1st Sundays in their sin are drinking damnation to themselves… Because you haven’t even turned form ur sin… It goes onto say: 1 Corinthians 11: 30For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. 31For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. 32But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world. –When we do self checks… That is God allowing us to judge ourselves daily to see if we are on one accord with him… I normally examine myself while reflecting on my day to him, & while I’m going through it if I did anything the holy spirit will let me know… (1 corinthians 24-32)
–please never take communion just because you are hungry.
