Doctrine at the Lord’s Table
For 2000 years His church has met and broken bread together. There is teaching here. Redemption. For we who believe, He has set us free from the guilt, penalty and power of sin. Also tehre is the great truth of the Vicarious Substitutionary Atonement. In other words, He took our place. He suffered for us, and instead of us. The table teaches us of the doctrine of the church – it is a church ordinance. We recognise the Lord’s body, beaten, pierced, buried, and risen again. And His body of which we are all members, who know Him, the church. It also teaches us the doctrine of Separation. We cannot be partakers of this table and the table of devils. We separate from false communion, from false doctrine, from false brethren, from false gospels and we are separated unto the Lord, as His holy, set apart people. The table also teaches us the doctrine of the Return of Christ. Are we ready?
