1. Jesus told us to take the Communion in Remembrance of Him

Did you take the Communion today? I encourage you to do so regularly, even in your home. You do not need to wait on someone to administer it to you. The bread represents the body of the Lord and the wine His blood. It is a mystery.

The believer eats the bread in remembrance of the crucifixion of the Lord’s body and drinks the blood in remembrance of the wounding of His blood.  Since I am participating in a mystery and am healed by His stripes; I therefore claim the healing that is mine – in health, finances, relationships and in every area where I hurt:

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 G364 of me – Luke 22: 19

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 G364 of me

After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance G364 of me – 1 Corinthians 11: 24 & 25

Anamimnēskō, which is a root word of remembrance, G364  reveals how the Lord’s death, burial and resurrection should be commemorated. The usage of the word instructs us that the believer must meditate on, mull over, recollect and review the history and meaning of  the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus in order to be strengthened in his or hear faith:

  • recall something that was done or said
  • call to mind
  • to be reminded about something important by someone else

Mimnēskomai  which is another root word, suggests to me that there is a dual element of remembrance.  One of the two texts in which it is used says that God is mindful of  humans.  By inference, I therefore believe that God becomes mindful of us when we take the Communion. In other words, God pays particular attention to the believer  at the time he or she partakes in the Lord’s Supper:

… one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful G3403 of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him? – Hebrews 2: 6.

 

2. The Revelation that is wrapped up in the Remembrance

I initially began to write about the Mystery of the  Lord’s Supper on Facebook. As I attempted to explain the mystery, the Father reminded me about The Book of Remembrance.  I immediately realized that Father had unlocked the key to the revelation of the Mystery of the Lord’s Supper.

Prophet Malachi saw into heaven and was given a most astonishing revelation about the Book of Remembrance.

Malachi  had given a very serious Prophetic Word of Correction and  Judgment to the nation of Israel. God showed him that the Angels were commanded to write a Book of Remembrance about the people who  heeded the Prophetic Word by changing their ways, and who spoke often about what they had heard from the mouth of the Prophet.

I hear the Father telling me that the Book of Remembrance is Heaven’s Hall of Fame. The Guinness Book of Records is earth’s paltry comparison. Only the most outstanding people are recorded in the Guinness Book of Records.

Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance (zikrown /H2146) was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name – Malachi 3: 16.

Then those who feared the LORD spoke with each other, and the LORD listened to what they said. In his presence, a scroll of remembrance was written to record the names of those who feared him and always thought about the honor of his name (NLT).

Zikrown (H2146) is the Hebrew word for Remembrance. It means memorial. However, I was fascinated to discover the ways in which it was used in the Hebrew text:

i. A memorial throughout generations

God will never forget those who partake.

ii. A memorial between thy eyes

The frontal lobe of the brain is represented in the phrase “between thy eyes.” It is associated with the retention of  longer term memories which are not task-based. These are often memories associated with emotions derived from input from the brain’s limbic system. In other words, God becomes deeply pleased when the believer remembers the Lord’s death, burial and resurrection by partaking in the Communion.

iii. Memorials in scripture were also rehearsed after they were written.

God asks the Angels to take out the Books of Remembrance on the Communion whenever He hears His people on Earth partaking. Scriptures reveal that when God remembered people, He took action to deliver.

God’s remembrance or memory is triggered by speech, prayers, groanings  (REMINDERS) in heaven and earth.

For example:

  • He remembered that Noah waited for release from the Ark. I believe that Noah and his family were inside speaking about the God’s instructions and deliverance from the flood.
  • God remembered that Abraham had prayed for Lot. Abraham had seen the smoke of Sodom and Gomorrah and reminded God about his nephew.
  • God remembered that Rachel had prayed for a child. She must have reminded Father  about her situation when her sister had another child.
  • God remembered His covenant with Abraham when He heard the groanings of Israel in Egypt.
  • God remembered Hannah’s prayer and gave her a child.

iv. God told Moses to place two onyx stones engraved with the names of the tribes of  Israel into the  shoulders of the High Priest’s ephod or robe.

 Jesus is the Great High Priest. Does He engrave our names into His clothes as a memorial  before the Father?

v. God also commanded Moses to make a breastplate of judgment which contained four rows of costly jewels into which the names of each tribe was engraved.

According to Exodus 28: 29,  High Priest Aaron carried the names of the tribes of Israel on the sacred breastpiece over his heart every time He went into the Holy Place as a memorial to the Lord.  The High Priest entered the Holy of Holies once a year on the Day of Atonement. As he did so, the Lord would see His jewels, the children of Israel on the clothing and extend forgiveness of sins of the nation.

More importantly, the breastplate carried the Urim and Thummim which were God’s way of helping the priests to make judgments when they needed guidance.
The revelation is that those who are washed in the blood and saved by grace are continually remembered and forgiven in Heaven whenever we participate in the Lord’s Supper according to the Word of the Lord. This is truly dwelling in the Presence of the Lord and speaks of special favor that is extended by God to those who obey His Word. There is no struggle to access heaven, God, Angels and the resources – heaven is always accessible. We just need to claim by faith what is needed in any situation.

vi. Twelve stones were left in the Jordan as a visible memorial of the miraculous crossing.

The believer who participates in the Communion serve as visible reminders in heaven of the grace and forgiveness of God to humans and the miraculous power of the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord.  Also, the Communion is accompanied by the miraculous as the believer receives healing by His stripes.

vii. The Book of Esther shows that a Book of records is associated with reward for work done for a King.

Whenever the Angels open the Book to make a record, God reads the record that was previously written, remembers the work and labour of the believer and pours out blessings on him/her.
viii. Finally, some memorials in scripture were associated with blowing of trumpets (music) and a holy convocation.

This revelations tells us that the Holy Communion should be a time of celebration rather than sorrow. It is a holy convocation, to be celebrated by those who are holy unto the Lord. There is a more important revelation, however, that I found when I studied the word remembrance.

God commanded the Jews to blow a trumpet whenever they went to war.  When they played the music, God would hear and remember and save them from their enemies (Numbers 10: 9).  The Communion commemorates the battle that Jesus fought and won in hell on our behalf. He came to destroy the works of darkness  and to give the believer victory over the forces of darkness. When the Communion is celebrated with music, God rises to attention and sends His Holy Angels out to war on our behalf,

More to come on the Mystery of the Communion. Blessings, peace and angelic prosperity.
