This Year's Memorial

The Memorial of Christ's death will be commemorated this year, on Tues. March 26th.
Jesus said, "For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them." (Matt.18:20)
The apostle Paul received direct contact and education from the glorified Christ (Acts9:3,4,5,6).
Paul's application of Matt.18:20 to the Memorial, was this...
"Therefore, my brethren, when you come together to eat, wait for one another." (1Cor.11:33)

We reasonably deduce from this command, that those who "eat"... "wait". Before partaking, we must wait "for one another". "One another" is defined, as those eating/partaking. These are the ones who "come together", and "wait" for one another, before "eating".
Should the anointed "eat" alone? Clearly not. but rather, in harmony with Christ's words at Matt.18:20, we are to wait for others to partake with.
I for one want to obey the advice of both Paul and our Master, Jesus Christ.

Regarding the power of more than one, Jesus also said...
"Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven." Matt.18:19
Here Christ pointed to the power of joint prayer. If on this night, we partake and pray alone, are we not defying what Jesus is here revealing? Are we not disobeying the apostle Paul as well?

I point to this lesson on prayer, because prophecy declares the importance of the joint prayers of the priests in the time of the end, as well as Christ's desire that we do ask in unity (John16:23,24). We know this "asking" and being "given", is speaking of joint prayer, due to "you"

....being plural, and it's parallel to Matt.18:19.

In speaking of the end, Daniel recorded....

Translation:

"This matter [is] by the
decree of the watchers, and
the demand (request) by the word of
the holy ones: to the intent
that the living may know
that the most High ruleth in
the kingdom of men, and
giveth it to whomsoever he
will, and setteth up over it
the basest."

Daniel's interpretation of this verse is stated in verse 26 and 25 B:
“And inasmuch as they (the watchers, holy ones) gave the command/request/asking/saying of holy ones to leave the stump and roots of the tree, your kingdom shall be assured to you, after you come to know that Heaven rules." "till you know that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomever He chooses."

My point is that Daniel refers to a "request" made in the time of the end, by Holy Ones/watchers (watchmen)/rousers (from sleep)...
and that at this request, those "living" may know the divine justice of the end of all matters; specifically, that the Kingdom be given to those whom God Himself wills.
This is connected to the "seven times" of the Gentiles as being completed (Dan.4:16), and the kingdom being given to the heirs (Dan.7:22).

Jesus accuses his brothers of "not asking" for such things in unity. (John16:24)
He says that if we do this, our joy will be made full; and he reveals that this joy is when he returns and the Kingdom is born (John16:22,21; Rev12:5).

I see a great urgency for the Holy Ones to follow the Bible's directives, namely; to gather for prayer concerning our proper requests for the arrival of the end, when divine justice will establish the exaltation of the humble, weak, and obedient; and the debasing of those presumptuous ones who stand in opposition to God's will.

"Two or more". That's all it takes. Scripture requests the same for the Memorial (1Cor.11:33).
Why not comply with both at once?

I am available and desirous to be in harmony with these scriptures. I stand ready to comply with them, along with any other Chosen One who also sees the same spirit which I have expressed in this post.
The Memorial is only two weeks away. It will take place at a time after sundown for all participants. If you desire to meet with me/us, please contact me for participation as soon as possible.
Regarding my thoughts about how to proceed this year, I am open to suggestions. However, if each of us contributes our own little part, we can in turn, make our individual expressions,
perhaps through prayer, song, or comments. The more that is contributed, the richer the experience will be....not only for all we who attend, but also for our Lord, who has promised to be there with us in our midst. (Matt.18:20)

  1. I agree with Pearl that we should not foresake the gather of ourselves together when given the opportunity.

    Many because of the present situation, have had to commemorate the Lord's supper alone because of isolation.

    We have the opportunity to share, pray, and fellowship as it should be with this arangement. It would be a matter of choice to decline in preference of willful isolation.

    I am doing all in my power to insure nothing interferes with my participation in this conferemce call gathering to celebration with fellow anointed Christians.

    Like Pearl, I encourage all to consider the benefits thay she points out in her article.

    John
