For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

2 Corinthians 4:6


Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep.

1 Corinthians 11: 27-30

When the hour had come, He sat down, and the twelve apostles with Him. Then He said to them, “With fervent desire I have desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer; for I say to you, I will no longer eat of it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.” Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, “Take this and divide it among yourselves; for I say to you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.” And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” Likewise He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is shed for you.

Luke 22: 14-20

For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.” For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes.

1 Corinthians 11: 23-26

In Quiet Communion

Click on poem to listen to it.

I gave you life
Through giving of myself,
My broken body
And my blood poured out

So take and eat
And have my life within
Remember that I
Have forgiven all your sins

So as you remember
All that I did for you,
My death on the cross
And all the beatings too

But more than that
I rose from the dead
And won the victory
Over Satan and of death

In your union with me,
Even though you may die,
You can know my victory
And have eternal life

But until that time,
Come often to my table,
Eat and drink of me,
For I am truly able

To conquer evil
That war against the Lord,
For I shall deliver
Those that I have called

And give unto you
The peace I only give,
So you may be led
And begin to really live.

Take and eat as you remember
The sacrifice that I made,
The bread and wine that represents
The life I willingly gave

My body beaten and pierced with nails,
My blood poured from my side,
For it was the only way for you
To receive eternal life

As you sit and reflect a moment,
Confess your sins to me
Let my blood cleanse you again
So you will truly be free

And if you need a healing touch,
Reach out to me today,
For in this quiet communion time
Your healing is already made

Then when you’re ready to partake,
Be thankful and be glad,
For you, my child, have many blessings
That others do not have

So let this communion time extend
To bless somebody else,
Reaching out to touch a life
That may be in need of help

But don’t let this time just pass you by,
Not letting it touch your need,
For I’ve ordained this communion time
So you can fellowship with me
