"It brings back to the same thing, in every congregation you have make-believers, unbelievers, and believers. It's been in every congregation. You find them all the time. Some of them make out like they're believers, that's the worst of type. And then they have those who are actually unbelievers; he won't bother you, he'll just walk away and shake his head. But those who make-believe, say they're believers, that's the kind you have to watch, is those make-believers. And then there is some genuine believers. See them three there? There was the unbelievers. As soon as He said, "Eat the flesh of the Son of man," Oh, man, that was it! The others was make-believers. They stayed till, just like Judas did, right up to the end. But then the real believers they couldn't explain it, but they believed it anyhow. They went on through."
Because many preachers, scholars and the unlearned do not know that the ministry of Elijah comes five times before the world goes into annihilation, they erroneously attribute every scripture regarding Elijah to only Elijah the Tishbite, and John the Baptist.
ELIJAH'S FIRST COMING
Elijah the Tishbite, first appears in the 17th Chapter of 1st Kings (1st Kings 17) and what God did through him in that ministry is well known to all Bible students.
He called for drought during the reign of King Ahab. He raised the son of the widow of Zarephath from death. He had a show-down with the 450 false prophets of Baal and proved that the God of Israel was the only true God. His miraculous ministry continues.
It is firmly established by the Bible that we have a body, spirit and soul. 1st Thessalonians 5:23 states, "And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ".
Communion, otherwise called the Lord's Supper is one of the three ordinances the Lord Jesus left with the church. The other two are Water Baptism and Feet Washing.
Like many other practices and beliefs of the church, the true practice and meaning of Communion has been lost on the modern church. By prophecy, some shall depart from the original faith in the latter times (1st Timothy 4:1). The practices and faith of the early saints will therefore be lost on many.
Apostle Paul talks about the Christian church being likened to a "Chaste virgin" espoused to one Husband, the Lord Jesus Christ. The church is considered to be the Bride of Jesus Christ.
The word "Church" means 'the called out'.
In II Corinthians 11:2, Apostle Paul wrote: "For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ."
The church is supposed to be a "virgin" of the Word, free from man-made dogmas, creeds and church traditions. Christ is coming for a Bride that is without spot, blameless, and without wrinkle.
