How do you eat Jesus?

As the living Father has sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eats me, even he shall live by me. John 6:57

How do you eat Jesus? He explains it in the first half of this verse: As I live by the Father… So, “eating Jesus” means to live by Jesus.

Whom the Father was, and is to Jesus, Jesus is to be to us – in the same order.

How Jesus lived, and lives, by the Father, we are to live by the Son.

Note that Jesus didn’t “eat the Father” by taking communion, rather, it was His spiritual communion and life with His Father which was His food:

Jesus said unto them, My food is to do the will of Him that sent me, and to finish His work. John 4:34

In this same order, this “eating Jesus” does not refer to, or amount to taking the bread and the wine, yet taking the LORD’s supper reminds us that our REAL food and our VERY LIFE OUT OF DEATH is derived by “eating Jesus”, as Jesus Himself “ate the Father” – by having Jesus as the fulfillment and contentment of our soul and life, and we will never hunger or thirst again!

    It’s both of them- communion through the Spirit; and Eucharist- Bread and Wine. There are 3 witnesses in the earth- the Spirit (communion with the Father), the Water (baptism) and the Blood (Eating the Body and Blood of Jesus- our new nature). Not one witness only

    Ben, the LORD’s supper should only be taken by those who have first spiritually partaken of Christ and live by Him, just as Jesus said that He lives by the Father. He didn’t live by the Father by taking communion. His life with His Father didn’t hinge on Him taking bread and drinking wine, and He said we can only live in the same way as He lived by the Father.

    You are simply echoing the age-old heresy and false gospel that to partake of communion gives one salvation on the basis they are literally “eating Jesus”.

    This is a doctrine of demons which has sent millions to hell under a false hope.

    The truth is that Communion proclaims the fact that one has already “eaten Jesus” and drawn their LIFE from Him, just in the same way that water baptism proclaims that one has already been baptized by the Spirit into Christ, thru faith.

    Both are expressions of faith, and If not, they are dead works.

    So, if a person’s faith is that taking bread and wine gives them salvation, then they have no faith and are still lost, denying Christ’s finished work on the cross.
