Mark 13:31 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.

The Lord’s Supper is a memorial meal that reminds us of the sacrifice that Jesus paid to redeem our souls from the debt and destruction of sin. It reminds us that by grace, through faith in Jesus, we have been delivered from the wrath to come. In our continuing study of Jesus’ Olivet discourse, we will see how God is going to gather once again the Jewish people from all over the world back to their ancient homeland. The restoration of the Jewish people back to their ancient homeland is nothing short of a miracle! The prophets of God said that He would do it (Ezekiel 11:17; Amos 9:14,15) and Jesus confirms it. The prophets also said that Jerusalem would be a burdensome stone to all nations (Zechariah 12:3), and that too has come to pass.

God is a promise keeping God. Heaven and earth may pass away, but His word always comes to pass. Thus, whenever we take communion together, we too can be confident that whatever Jesus accomplished for us on the cross, both in this life and in eternity, shall come to pass.

Reader, have you repented of your sin and trusted Jesus alone as Lord of your life and Savior from your sin debt? Selah
