One hundred and sixty three years ago, on June 16, 1858, the newly chosen candidate for the U.S. Senate, Abraham Lincoln, delivered a speech to his colleagues. His goal was to unite them in their on-going discussions and disagreements about whether to abolish slavery or not. In his effort to get them into an agreement, he said, “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” Now whenever that phrase is heard, it is attributed to President Lincoln, but he was quoting someone else! And that someone was Jesus Christ! What was the original context?…
King of Babylon
The Eucharist (i.e. Communion) is a ritual, which has been performed in religious masses all over the world for millennia. The ritualistic rite of eating a cracker and drinking wine has been practiced since Babylon under the rule of Nimrod, King of Babylon. In the Vatican, the Pope now wears that same crown of “Mystery, Babylon the Great” and holds, “a golden cup in her hand, making all nations drunk with the wine of her fornication” (Rev 17:2-5, 18:3).
Man shall not live by bread alone
Catholics and many religious sects are told that priests have the power to transform a cracker and wine into the flesh and blood of Jesus. Protestants practice the same ritual but believe that the bread and wine are a symbol of Jesus. Yet, the very man they think they’re reverencing by eating a piece of bread said:
“It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.” Matthew 4:4
