Why Miracles Of The Eucharist – Part I-www.277.cc

Religion It’s altogether fitting that the Lord allows us to .e back to where for us, it all started, to the Shrine of the Miracles of the Eucharist in Lanciano, Italy to kind of kick off the Miracles of the Eucharist series that we’re doing right now.. In order to do this, in order to even talk about Miracles of the Eucharist, and why Miracles of the Eucharist, we have to go back to Scripture, John 6:51, because none of it has any meaning unless it’s based on this MOST IMPORTANT scripture passage from John 6:51. And so we go to John 6:51, to where Jesus gave them what we call the Eucharistic Doctrine. "I Myself, am the living bread, .e down from Heaven. If anyone eats of this Bread, he will live forever. And the bread that I will give is My flesh, for the life of the world." The Jews then disputed among themselves, saying, "How can this man give us His flesh to eat?" Then Jesus said to them, "Truly, truly I say unto you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man, and drink His blood, you have no life in you." At that point, many of His people got up and began to leave. His disciples said "This is a hard saying. Who can listen to it?" So, you see, the controversy began right away, even there, at the very moment when He made the Eucharistic statement, controversy began over the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. And they say that most of his followers left him. Now, you must get into the mentality of these dear people, before you judge them harshly. They were Jews. They lived under the Mosaic Law, and we know that Jesus knew the law, didn’t He. He knew what they were thinking. Under the Law of Moses, the kosher law of Moses, no Jew can drink of animal blood. What does that mean in our terms? Rare steak. Any of you like rare steak? Well, if you do, you’re drinking the blood of animals. This is the way the Jews felt. They soak the meat; they salt the meat. No blood. What now, not possibly the Messiah, not Rabbi, this Nazorean. See the day before, when He multiplied the loaves and fishes, He was the Teacher; He was the prophet; today He’s that Nazorean. And He’s proposing that they drink human blood. This was repulsive to them. They did not understand. He was also proposing that they eat human flesh. To .pound the problem they were having, there were reports of human sacrifices happening in the hills of Judea. They didn’t understand. It wasn’t until the Last Supper, in the Upper Room, when He showed them how they could eat His Body and drink His blood, in a non-cannibalistic way. Now, the easiest thing would have been for him to ac.modate them. Remember, He came to save them. He didn’t want to separate Himself from them. He loved them! He knew that His time was short. He did not want to lose even one soul. Not one soul. Every soul on earth is precious to Him. Why didn’t He .promise? Why didn’t He ac.modate them? Why didn’t He say that which divides us? What the first heretics used to divide us, that this was only a symbol? Now, my darling is petite, but if were to say something and all of you began making an exit, she would run up in front of you, block the door with her body, and cry out, "You misunderstood what we were saying. Let me explain. We meant to say it’s only a symbol." But He didn’t say it’s a symbol. Why didn’t He say it’s a symbol? Because He is truth, isn’t He? He’s the truth. and to be the truth, He must speak the truth. God cannot lie… He even turned to the apostles, and said to them, "Will you leave Me also?" But that was the beginning of the Eucharist; that was the beginning of the controversy. It started at that very moment, and has continued down through the centuries, to this very day. Now, we just want you to realize how important this was to Jesus, how important this is to Jesus. That we understand that we realize what is .ing about. He was preparing them for the journey, wasn’t he? What had they been doing? What do we do? We go from conference to conference, from pilgrimage to pilgrimage, very often from seer to seer, from apparition to apparition, and we’re not really listening to what Jesus is saying in every experience. We used to have a priest, who said to us, "The people in Capharnaum were running from prayer meeting to prayer meeting, and never knew that God was in their midst. You have to understand the reason for the attacks. The Eucharist, which is a part of the Mass, is a recreation of the Sacrifice of the Cross. Satan hates the Cross. Like Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, in his Seven Last words, in the Church of St. Agnes in New York, just before he died, he said, "Satan said to them, ‘.e down off that Cross and we’ll believe. We’ll believe in anything, we’ll believe in the pope, only .e down off that Cross." Ge.e Bernard Shaw said, "It’s the Cross that bars the way. And Archbishop Sheen said, "Yes, it bars the way to hell!" Yesterday, when we ascended the steps and stood before the Miracle of the Eucharist of Lanciano, Penny remained there because usually she explains the Miracle of the Eucharist to the pilgrims. She tells us: "Yesterday was a very unique experience for me personally. And I’m sure if I would ask the pilgrims, they would all say that they had their own unique experience. I found I couldn’t explain it to you, because I didn’t need to explain it to you. You knew; you understood, even beyond the story. This is the message that I have been receiving through you, at every Miracle of the Eucharist. The miracle is beyond the story. The Miracle is in the people. We have never seen the reaction in anybody that has been to the Miracles of the Eucharist as we have with you, with this group that we have here. It’s never been this pronounced. It’s never been as dramatic; it’s never been as personal as it has been these last few days. Copyright (c) 2011 Bob and Penny Lord’s Site About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
