The relationship and correlation between the Doctrine of the Royal Family Honor Code and how it relates to putting on the Breastplate of Righteousness.

The importance of the real meaning of the Lord’s supper and the unity that should exist in the Royal Family.

JOH 6:35  “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me shall not hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.

JOH 6:48, our Lord said, “I am the bread of life.”

The phrase for we all partake of the one bread refers to the unity of the Royal Family.

1. We are to “come” or “gather” together HEB 10:25  we are not to forsake the assembling of ourselves together.

2. We come together “as” a church not “in” the church.

MAR 9:40 “For he who is not against us is for us. “

MAT 12:30 “He who is not with Me is against Me; and he who does not gather with Me scatters.

Approved – dokimos meaning those members of the Royal Family who are with us, for us, and have been revealed as those who are faithful and can be counted upon.
You cannot have divisions or factions without heresies and then those members of the Royal Family who are truly faithful to our Lord will become manifested.

These are the believer who fulfill MAT 25:40 “Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, {even} the least {of them,} you did it to Me.”

ACT 9:4 and he fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?” ACT 9:5And he said, “Who art Thou, Lord?” And He {said,} “I am Jesus whom you are persecuting,

ACT 22:7  and I fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to me, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?’ ACT 22:8“And I answered, ‘Who art Thou, Lord?’ And He said to me, ‘I am Jesus the Nazarene, whom you are persecuting.’

By divisions and dissensions in the Corinthian church, the very purpose of the eucharist is destroyed.

One thing that should characterize the Lord’s table is unity among believers.

Paul is actually saying in this verse that it is impossible to eat the Lord’s supper when there are divisions among you.

None of us have the right to participate in the celebration of the Lord’s supper if we have any bitterness, anger, hatred, jealousy or any type of mental attitude sins in our soul.

1. The antinomian.
2. The legalistic.

The antinomian is one who holds the opinion that under the dispensation of grace morality is no longer needed.

The legalistic believer is the one that thinks that to please God you must be good and moral and sweet, and as TLJC said……how great is their darkness because they think that they have the light.

Eucharisteo, this is where we get the phrase the eucharist, giving thanks for grace.

“He broke it” refers to JOH 10:18,  No one has taken My life away from Me, I lay it down [for my Royal Family] on My own initiative.

He chose Himself to be broken for our sins as a member of the Royal Family as He took up the breastplate of righteousness which was His very own righteousness given to us while He took away our sins.

1PE 3:18, For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, in order that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit;

ROM 5:8, But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died FOR US.

ROM 8:31-32, What then shall we say to these things? If God {is} FOR US, [as a member of the Royal family who controls the universe, He is for you] who {is} against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up FOR US all [TLJC], how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?

ROM 8:34, who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes FOR US.

2CO 4:17, For momentary, light affliction is producing FOR US an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison,

GAL 3:13, Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse FOR US‑‑ for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”‑‑

EPH 5:2, and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you, and gave Himself up FOR US, an offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma.

1TH 5:10, who died FOR US, that whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with Him.

TIT 2:14, who gave Himself FOR US, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds.

HEB 9:24, For Christ did not enter a holy place made with hands, a {mere} copy of the true one, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God FOR US;

1JO 3:16, We know love by this, that He laid down His life FOR US; and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

1JO 4:16, And we have come to know and have believed the love which God has FOR US. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.
