Chapter 10

TILL HE COMES!

"For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come." (I Corinthians 11:26.)

Another great truth taught in the Lord's Supper is the second coming of Jesus Christ!! The believer is to remember Christ, His broken body and shed blood! He is to remember his own salvation and examine himself. He is to look forward to the return of Jesus Christ.

Job expressed this hope in Job 19:25-26.

"For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:

"And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God."

This is a sure hope! Job said "I know!" What a wonderful thing it is to have this kind of assurance!

"Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil." Hebrews 6:19.

Paul said, "I know whom I have believed . . ." John tells us, concerning the scriptures, "These things are written that ye may know . . ."

The old timers talked of a "know-so" salvation! This would apply also to the second coming of Jesus Christ. The Lord's Supper reminds us of this glorious truth. We look forward with certainty to the return of our Lord!

This is also a living hope!! Job said "my Redeemer liveth."

"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead." I Peter 1:3.

HE LIVES

At the Supper we are to remember our crucified Lord, His broken body and shed blood but this is not all! He died ---- but He lives!! We serve a living Saviour. Our Christ is not lying in a tomb! He arose! He lives! He's coming again!

He walks with us and gives us power over sin, Satan and death!

This is indeed a blessed hope! Job put it this way, ". . . and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth."

"Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ." Titus 2:13.

"Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven." Acts 1:11.

"THIS SAME JESUS"

"This same Jesus!" The babe of Bethlehem's manger, born of a virgin. The one who went about doing good and working miracles! The man the world rejected and hung on a cross. The one the trembling, repentant sinners have trusted in down through the ages! "This same Jesus" is coming again!

What stirring of emotions comes to the believer's heart as he remembers Calvary! It was there that he first saw the light' It was here that he first met the Saviour and now, oh joy upon joy, he looks forward to standing in the presence of "this same Jesus!"

It is a glorious hope! Job said, "And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God."

"Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

"And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure." I John 3:2-3.

"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

"Then we which are alive, and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord." I Thess. 4:16-17.

At the Table of the Lord the cares, burdens, heartaches and pains of this life should be lighter! We are the sons of God redeemed for an eternity! One day, oh glorious hope, we shall see Him and be like Him!

"And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away." Rev. 21:4,

The tears, sorrow, pain and death of this life will be forgotten.

God means for us to meditate on these things at the Lord's Supper.
