The Last Supper
"This do in Remembrance of Me"
August 19, 2011
by DJ. Love, Bnei HaMashalim
Messiah Yahshua never
wanted us to memorialize the day of His birth or the day of His crucifixion. Messiah Yahshua, "YHVH's
Spokesman", was not created by YHVH to be Worshiped. Messiah Yahshua,
the symbolic "Sacrificial Lamb" of YHVH had at least three major purposes for existence
that satisfied YHVH's "Plan of Salvation", which were
Prophecy, Covenants, and "The Promise" made to Abraham;
and not one included being worshiped as a baby or as a reborn pagan god (IHS) after the pagan
Christ-mass and Easter traditions. To worship Messiah Yahshua is to place him higher than
or equal to YHVH. We are not to worship Yahshua or Jesus, but the one true
Self-existent Eternal Father, YHVH. Yahshua is not YHVH, but a proxy for
YHVH (an ambassador or Magistrate),
who has been given his dominion and power from YHVH. Without or apart from YHVH, Yahshua
is nothing. Yahshua, himself, stated that our first and greatest commandment was to worship
YHVH (through obedient love) with
all of our heart, soul, strength, and all of our mind; and we now perform this worship of
YHVH through following the "Selfless" example of Yahshua,
because Messiah Yahshua is not only our "Role Model," but our "High Priest" (a
Nazarite Priest). Yahshua is, also, The "Appointed
Firstborn" of "The Children of YHVH" (The
First of all The Firstfruits), and if we worship YHVH as Yahshua worshipped
Him, in "Spirit and Truth," then we shall become "Like Him" (made
in The Image of YHVH with the dominion and power of YHVH; just like our elder brother Messiah
So what are three good reasons for Yahshua birth, life, and ministry?
(1) To become the perfect human example of "Self-sacrifice" for
sin, because as a 100 percent human he established that an ordinary man that loves YHVH more
than "Self" can do the same thing.
(2) To become our "High Priest," as a Nazarite Priest (Messiah
was not of the seed of Aaron or a Levite), which gave him the legal authority
to make "Atonement for Sin" and fulfill other prophecies.
(3) To establish that Torah (the Law) was
never intented as a law in the first place, but was always intended as a "Marriage
Covenant" (of Love and Respect) between
YHVH and His "Chosen" bride; Of which, the individual commandments,
ordinances, etc. . . are the "Wedding Vows".
This is an awesome responsibility,
and this power and dominion will not be given to anyone who does not have the exact same "Eternal
Spirit" of Seeking Righteousness as YHVH.
Messiah Yahshua never expected
mankind to worship him, and he only made one request as a memorial (The Last
Supper), and that request was to be remembered (after his
final act and culmination of his ministry on Earth; sacrifice of "Self"),
as a Spiritual example of Love Perfected. For greater love (perfected
love) has no one than this, that a man lay down his whole life (as
a "Living Sacrifice") for his friends, as a memorial only.
This was observed by the symbolic drinking of red wine and the symbolic eating of broken leavened bread,
which is symbolic of his whole life; not just the crucifixion. The broken leavened bread,
also, being symbolic of broken vanity or broken SELF, and since "Life" is "In
then, also, by the shedding (a small amount ) of
symbolic blood (Messiah did not bleed to death).
This Memorial to Messiah Yahshua
using leavened (Artos) bread
is not a part of "Passover" or "The Feast of Unleavened Bread" nor is it to
replace "The Feast of Unleavened Bread." It was a "One Time" Chagigah addition
to the "Passover Season". It is not a
commanded Holy Day or Feast, and it preceded Passover by one or more days. No unleavened
bread is-was to be used prior to the end of Passover and the beginning of Unleavened Bread.
Please take note that this Chagigah was never designed to become a Holy Day, and those that celebrate it as such do so unrighteously. The Last Supper is no different than Purim or Chanukah, which are manmade "Zemans", and are therefore forbidden by The Eternal Creator.
The drinking of wine and the eating of unleavened (food
without fermentation) bread is only symbolic. Those
who eat and drink of it only after the physical manner of eating and drinking, do so unworthily.
But those who recognize the spiritual implications and apply them to their lives, do so worthily,
because they do hunger and thirst for righteousness sake.
The primary lessons of Messiah's Death and Resurrection are that "Spiritual (Eternal) Life
comes from death to "SELF" by humbly offering yourself as a living sacrifice for
others, as a servant of YHVH through Obedience to His Commandments of Love, and in accordance
to the example of Messiah's
True Ministry. In other words, we literally follow in the footsteps of Yahshua,
who freely gave of himSELF for
our Spiritual well being, by patterning our lives after his life.
the sin of SELF) refers to any food that has not begun
the process of fermentation, and is not limited to bread or wine. Grape Juice is not fermented,
but wine is. Grape juice is not symbolically appropriate as Messiah's blood,
but by putting just one drop of wine in a cup of grape juice, we transform the grape juice
to fermented (leavened) grape
juice (meaning not pure grape juice).
37 Yahshua said to him, "'You shall love the LORD your G-d with all
your heart (Emotional Caring),
and with all your soul (life),
and with all your mind (Pneuma).'
38 This is the first and great commandment.
30 you shall love the LORD your G-d with all your heart, and with all your
soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.' This is the primary commandment.
12 This is my commandment, that you love one another, even as I have
13 Greater love has no one than this, that a man lay down his (whole) life (as
a ministry) for his friends.
14 You are my friends, if you do whatever I command you.
26 As they were eating, Yahshua took (leavened) bread (Artos),
gave thanks for it, and broke it. He gave (it all) to
the disciples, and said, "Take, eat; this is my (symbolically
27 He took the cup (of fermented grape
juice), gave thanks, and gave (it
all) to them, saying, "Drink all of it,
28 for this is my (symbolic) blood
of the new covenant (not new religion, but RENEWED marriage
vow), which is poured out for many for the remission of sins.
29 But I tell you (Nazarite
Vow follows) that "I
will not drink of this fruit of the vine from this time forth, until that day when I drink
it anew with you in my Father's kingdom."
Messiah Yahshua is the symbolic "Vine",
and "True Believers" are thesymbolic "Fruit Bearing Branches" of
the vine. Although, in a sense, we are also the fruit of the vine (with
Messiah we are "The First Fruits" with Messiah).
1 Corinthians 11:23-26
23 For I received from the Magistrate (Proxy
or Messiah) that
which, also, I delivered to you, that master Yahshua on the night in which he was
betrayed took bread (G740, "artos" or leavened bread).
24 When he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, "Take, eat. This (artos) is
my body, which is [to be] broken for you. Do this in memory of me."
25 In the same way he also took the cup, after supper, saying, "This
cup is [to be] the RENEWED covenant (marriage vow
to YHVH) in my blood (according
to my sacrificial example). Do this, as often as you drink, in memory
26 For as often as you eat this (leavened) bread,
and drink this cup, you proclaim the master's death (to
Self) until he returns.
Note: If you are beginning to
equate The Messiah saying that his body is leavened bread (artos),
as meaning that he was not yet perfectly sinless at the time of The Last Supper,
then you would be correct according to "The Letter of the Law".
Messiah was not perfectly sinless until he gave himSELF on
the torture stake for our example of how to become perfected (through
SELF-lessness). It seems that Christianity has taught us that
in order to be sinless or perfect, we must always have been sinless (since
birth), but this is a bold faced lie. YHVH does not seek
sinless (perfect from birth) people;
YHVH seeks sinners, who reject sin (repent
of "Self"), and thus seek to become sinless by
Spiritually (mentally) dying
to "SELF." Therefore,
in order to be a perfect example of rejecting sin or temptation, The Messiah must
have, also, had to reject sin (Self),
and he did so when Satan (human nature) tempted
him (YHVH cannot be tempted).
Additionally, no one took Messiah's life, because he freely gave his whole
life, as an anthropomorphism (physical to Spiritual
parallel) or example of how to gain and retain favor (Grace) in
And it came to pass in those days, that Yahshua came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was (symbolically) Baptized(Messiah
chose to reject self or sin) by John(The
Baptiser, who ONLY baptised "Unto Repentance" of Self) in
10 And straightway (after repenting of "Self" and) coming
up out of the water, he saw the heavens (clouds) opened (parted),
and the Spirit (Righteousness Seeking Nature of
THE FATHER) like (similar
to) a dove descending upon him (filled
him with The Eternal Father's Righteousness Seeking Nature or Spirit):
11 And there came a voice from heaven, [saying], Thou art my beloved (appointed) Son (YHVH
knew "The Intent" of Messiah's heart), in whom I am well
pleased (so far so good, but Messiah still had
to endure temptation and suffering or "Self Denial").
12 And immediately the Spirit (Messiah new mentality) driveth (caused) him (to
go) into the wilderness (a
place of temptation).
13 And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan (human
nature & selfish thoughts); and was with the wild beasts; and
the angels (Righteous Thoughts) ministered
For it became him (Messiah),
for whom [are] all things (created by YHVH),
and by (or on behalf of) whom
[are] all things (created by YHVH),
in bringing many (future) sons
unto glory (in the first resurrection), to
make the captain of their salvation (Messiah) perfect
There you have it. Messiah
was (eventually) perfected by
suffering, and NOT created perfect, as a baby. Therefore, the need
and reason for the usage of leavened bread (Artos) for
his body, because Messiah did not achieve absolute perfection until he gave him-SELF (suffered death
to "SELF") on the stake (cross).
as a "PERFECT" example of Self-sacrifice.
Of course, we don't have to die on a stake, and neither did Messiah, but we do have
to reject sin (repent of "Self"),
and seek perfection; YHVH knows "The Intent of our Hearts."
The Jews did not take
messiah's life, anymore than the Romans did. Nobody can take that which is freely given.
Ever since the beginning of creation, Messiah's self-sacrifice was always the pivotal
part of YHVH's "Plan Of Salvation".
Currently It is claimed
that there is discovered evidence that Messiah might not have physically died on the
cross (stake). Our stand
is: Regardless of whether he actually died after being crucified or not is irrelevant.
His humble act of Self-sacrifice (sacrificial
love) once and for all defined what it truly means to become
a "Living Sacrifice" willing to Die to Self. For it is not perfection without
blemish that YHVH seeks, but sinners that are desirous of dying to Self (repentance) in
favor of seeking the righteousness of YHVH that is pleasing.
Galatians 1:4 Who gave himSELF for
our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will
of (our) G-d and our FATHER:
Galatians 2:20 I am crucified
with Messiah: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Messiah (Spiritually) liveth
in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the (same) faith (as) of
the Son of G-d, who loved me, and gave himSELF for
Ephesians 5:25 Husbands,
love your wives, even as Messiah also loved the assemblies, and gave himSELF for
Titus 2:14 Who gave himSELF for
us, that he might (by his example) redeem
us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
Now before the feast of the Passover, Yahshua knowing
that his time had come that he (Self) would (Spiritually) depart
out of this world to his Father, having loved his own, who were in the world, he loved
them to the end.
2 After supper (A Chagigah and not
a Passover Meal), the devil (Human
Nature) having already put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's
son, to betray him,
3 Yahshua, knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands,
and that he came forth from YHVH, and was going to YHVH,
4 arose from supper (A Chagigah and
not a Passover Meal), and laid aside his outer garments. He took
a towel, and wrapped a towel around his waist.
5 Then he poured water into the basin, and began to wash the disciples'
feet, and to wipe them with the towel that was wrapped around him.
6 Then he came to Simon Peter. He said to him, "Master, do you wash
7 Yahshua answered him, "You don't know what I am doing now, but you
will understand later."
8 Peter said to him, "You will never wash my feet!" Yahshua answered
him, "If I don't wash you, you have no part with me."
9 Simon Peter said to him, "Master, not my feet only, but also my
hands and my head!"
10 Yahshua said to him, "Someone who has bathed only needs to have
their feet washed, but is completely clean. You are clean, but not all of you (meaning
of ALL those present)."
11 For he knew him who would betray him, therefore he said, "You are
not all clean."
12 So when he had washed their feet, put his outer garment back on, and
sat down again, he said to them, "Do you know what I have done to you?
13 You call me, 'Teacher' and a 'Master.' You say so correctly, for so
14 If I then, as a Master and a Teacher, have washed your feet, you also
ought to wash one another's feet.
15 For I have given you an example, that
you also should do as I have done to you.
16 Most assuredly I tell you, a servant is not greater than his master,
and neither is one who is sent greater than he who sent him.
17 If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them
18 I speak not of you all. I know whom I have chosen. But that the scripture
may be fulfilled, 'He who eats bread with me has lifted up his heel against me.
