Three Suppers


We are reminded of three suppers at the institution of the Lord's Supper. The first supper is the Passover Supper. Jesus instructed Peter and John to prepare the room for the Passover. They did as Jesus appointed them and made ready the Passover. As they ate of this supper the Lord told them, "With desire I have desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer."

There is a similarity between the Passover Supper and the Lord's Supper. The Passover Supper reminded them of the deliverance from the land of Egypt when the blood of the iamb was applied to the door and the Lord passed over when the first born of the Egyptians were slain. Jesus is the Lamb of God that taketh away the sin of the world, so the Passover was typical of the Lord's death before He suffered. The Lord's Supper is typical of the suffering of Christ after He suffered.

The Second Supper is what Paul called the Lord's Supper. After the Passover Supper the disciples got into an argument about who was the greatest. Jesus washed their feet, predicted the betrayal done by Judas, Judas left, and the Lord predicted they all would be offended in Him that very night. All included Peter who would deny Him thee tires before the rooster crowed twice. And then Jesus instituted the Lord’s Supper in which He said, "This do in remembrance of Me."

The third Supper is the Wedding Supper of the Lamb. During the Lord's Sapper the Lord said, “I shall not drink of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father's Kingdom.” In Revelation 19 John tells us, "The marriage of the Lamb is come and His bride hath made herself ready. It was given to her to array herself in fine linen pure and bright, and the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.” Then the Lord told John to write something. It was very important. He said, "Write blessed are they that are bidden to the marriage supper of the Lamb."

Jesus said regarding the Lord's Supper, "This do in remembrance of Me." Some may trample under foot the Son of God and count the blood of the covenant wherewith they were sanctified an unholy thing by indifference to the observance of the Lord's Supper. However with repentance forgiveness is still available, but if you miss the third Supper—the Marriage Supper of the lamb—you  have missed it all. THIS DO IN REMBRANCE OF ME!
