Apostle Sergio Enríquez.
Life has been good since we met Jesus as our savior. However in this good life, there are moments better than others. The Bible says, “For every time you do this, my death you announce.” Death is better than birth because with death we multiply. Every time we announce the Lord’s death we announce the Lord’s multiplication. Every time we eat the Holy Supper we announce the best day of the Lord, His death. What we are actually doing is celebrating a covenant of which we are part thanks to His mercy.
Jeremiah 31:33 (NASB) 33 “But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days,” declares the Lord, “I will put My law within them and on their heart I will write it; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
We were the ones getting a new covenant. The cup is the new covenant, the first supper, not the last one. The Holy Supper is a seal. This is the covenant, when God makes a covenant he sticks to it. In other words, we were not His people and we did not have a god, but now we do.
The following are blessings of the New Covenant that appear in Jeremiah 31:33:
- I will put My law within them.
- On their heart I will write it.
- And I will be their God.
- And they will be my people.
We did not have a god before but now we do. The statement, “I will be their God” is linked to the New Covenant, it is the third blessing of the New Covenant.
Revelation 21:7 (NASB) 7 He who overcomes will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be My son.
Everything surrounding the phrase “and I will be his God” has to do with the New Covenant. Nobody can overcome if they are not bound to the New Covenant. We have to overcome temptations, the world and the devil. The Bible says, “These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.”And since we are children of the Lord, we have to do what our Father does, he has overcome the world. The Holy Supper makes us conquerors. We can overcome our temptations. The Holy Supper gives us the strength to be conquerors of the world, temptations, the devil and the Antichrist; it is a beautiful covenant, a weapon to become a conqueror and a great blessing. Today, the Holy Supper will help you to become a conqueror. The one who eats the Holy Supper has life and will be risen. Nobody ate the Holy Supper before the church, nobody from the Old Testament did. The first time that the Holy Supper was eaten was at the cenacle. We are here to become conquerors, we will not be afraid of bad news, we will be able to sleep well.
