The Victory Meal
The last supper was an expression of the new covenant and the cup of victory. In Genesis 14:18, Abram met King Melchizedek. As a gesture of victory and establishment of covenant, Melchizedek brought out the bread and the wine and the king and Abram partook together. Jesus deviated from the standard Passover meal and brought out the bread and the wine. In a display of His covenant with them, the King served the children of Abraham. Victory was coming!
“…Jesus took the bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them and said, ‘Take, eat; this is My body.’ Then He took the cup…and He said to them, ‘This is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many.’” (Mark 14: 22-24; NKJV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- If you have bread and grape juice or wine, go get some and prepare to take communion – just you and the Lord, or include your family or prayer group.
- Take a few minutes and thank the Lord for your salvation – the victory of the cross manifested!
- Thank the Lord that He has established the United States to be in covenant with Him. Reaffirm your personal covenant and our nation’s covenant with Him as you take communion. Victory is coming!
- Using the scripture above in Mark, read it aloud and take communion.
A prayer you can pray:
Father, thank you so much for sending Jesus to form a new covenant between You and Your people. Thank you for saving me! Thank you that you have also formed a covenant with the United States of America when You established our nation for Your divine purposes. As I take communion now, I ask You to remember these covenants, Lord, and may all of Your plans be victorious! Amen.
The victory of the cross is going to be manifested throughout our nation, which is in eternal covenant with God!
