Topic: KOINONIA: BECOMING ONE WITH GOD 2

Bible Reading: Genesis 17:10-14

📖10….”This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee; Every man child among you shall be circumcised.
📖11….And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me and you.
📖12….And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in your generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any stranger, which is not of thy seed.
📖13….He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought with thy money, must needs be circumcised: and my covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant.
📖14….And the uncircumcised man child whose flesh of his foreskin is not circumcised, that soul shall be cut off from his people; he hath broken my covenant.”

Message:

🔥From the above passage taken from Genesis 17:10-14, it is crystal that in both dispensations (New and Old Testaments), God has terms of references that adherences of faith in Him must follow, before being accepted as parts of Him. While circumcision (MILAH) was the token of being one with God in the Old Testament, Communion (KOINONIA), is the token of being one with God in the New Testament. As, whoever rejected circumcision was cut off from his people and God in Genesis 17:14, so whoever doesn’t take the Communion has no life of Christ in him…John 6:53; such is also automatically cut down from eternal life.

🔥🔥This is why Communion is a compulsory festival in Christianity, which has the Godhead in attendance because the life of God in the blood of the Communion, is shared for all communicants at the Communion table. Yet, so many denominations are still depriving their members of this all important and life giving experience. Since the Communion creates interpersonal bond in Christianity with the Godhead, it actually acts as a unifying token, which connects man with the Divine Nature spoken of in 2 Peter 1:4. It is the presence of the divine nature in the born again believer that made Jesus to compare us with the unpredictable wind in John 3:8.

🔥🔥🔥In Philippians 3:10, believers are expected to know and conform to the Koinonia or fellowship of his sufferings and death, so that our earthly sufferings won’t yield any sorrow to us (1 Peter 4:13), because of the assurance of the crown of salvation (John 10:28), our bonding with Christ has given us through the Communion. Also, our faithful fellowship with God, unites us with the future glory (1 Peter 5:1), the father has prepared for all that partake of the Communion. So, the more of the Communion you take, the stronger your bond with the Godhead.

SOULS ACTIVITIES:

🙏Precious Father, use the Communion to admit me from death unto life, in Jesus’ name.

🙏🙏Ancient of days, duplicate your divine nature into all our Church members, whenever we feast on the Communion table, in Jesus’ name.

🙏🙏🙏O Lord, as my earthly sufferings are diminished by my identification with Christ’s sufferings, may I be unified with the future glory of Christ by same, in Jesus’ name.
