If you have never done the Foot washing like Christ did-give it a try?
The Importance of The Lords Supper and Foot Washing!
By Jimmie Warren
As we try to show the importance of the meaning of the wine and bread, and what "foot washing" is all about, let us examine the facts:This years service is at sunset April 7th 2009
The Passover ( Lord's Supper ) represents the sacrifice of Christ which pays for the sins of all who repent and accept it in faith. It also represents partaking of eternal life through Jesus Christ (shown by the taking of the bread and wine which symbolize His body and blood).
Y’shua/Jesus met with His disciples at the beginning of the 14th of Nisan.. It is clear not only from the gospel of John that He had the Last Supper a day earlier than the Jews Passover of the Old covenant shown in (John 18:28), but this is also indicated by passing remarks in the Synoptic gospels. (While it is recognized that there are still some unanswered questions in any attempt at harmonizing all four accounts, it is evident that Jesus took His Passover a day earlier than the Jews.) By far this most important festival of Jesus' life was the one at which He was betrayed.
In any case, Y’shua /Jesus at this time changed the symbols of the Passover for Christians and also went through the ceremony of washing the disciples’ feet. This years Passover will be the 8th of April so, beginning at dusk the night before ( April 7th) we celebrate the Lord's Supper and foot washing as our Lords example! The most detailed discussion is devoted to the celebration of the Christian Passover. (1 Corinthians 11:17-34)these scriptures gives detailed directions on how to take the "Lord's Supper" (kuriakon deipnon) or "communion." The memorial celebration was conducted "on the night when He was betrayed," that is, the evening at the beginning of the 14th (v. 23). Y’shua /Jesus The Passover [Lord's Supper] is observed in the evening at the beginning of Nisan 14 in a very solemn ceremony, the most structured of any of the annual assemblies.
The order, is first the foot washing service, then the taking of the bread, and finally the drinking of the wine. Before each part of the ceremony appropriate scriptures are read at the end of these services sing a song or two then, close and dismiss your services.
The purpose of the foot washing ceremony
"... Know ye what I have done to you? Ye call me Master and Lord; and ye say well, for so I am. If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet. For I HAVE GIVEN YOU AN EXAMPLE THAT YE SHOULD DO AS I HAVE DONE TO YOU!"
The bread represents the body of Y'shua Jesus
Jesus is the "bread of life." The eating of the bread and the drinking of the wine represent partaking of the eternal life which only God can give. The beaten body of Christ also represents the stripes He took on His back enabling us to claim the gift of divine healing for our physical infirmities (Isaiah 53:4-5; 1 Peter 2:24). the shed blood of Jesus who gave Himself as an offering to pay for all the sins of mankind. That full and complete sacrifice makes it possible for one to have any and all sins forgiven upon repentance.
The wine represents the blood of Y'shua Messiah
The wine also represents the New Covenant made between God and the Christian by the blood of Christ. is explained by Jesus Himself as being to show true humility and the proper sense of service (John. 13:12-17). No one can be greater than His Lord, who is Jesus Christ; yet Jesus was the greatest servant of all and gave more than anyone else for mankind. This spirit of Christian love and service is expressed symbolically by washing another person's feet and then allowing that person to reciprocate. Jesus left instructions for His disciples to follow.ticle we hope you start your new year off with a fresh start because of Jesus Christ and His great love for you all. Amen!
In the name of our Lord and Master Y’shua
Be blessed and have new life in Him who loves you so much He laid down His life so you could live forever in the wonderful Kingdom of our Father God Amen
