The Family Altar
105 Notice, after the battle was over, Melchisedec served His victorious child communion; think of that, part of Himself! Now we want to see here. In type here is, in view, the communion. After the battle, He gave of Himself, because the communion is part of Christ. And after the struggle is over, after you’ve done got yourself whipped out, then is when you partake of Christ, become part of this Being. You get it?
106 Jacob wrestled all night, and wouldn’t turn Him loose until He blessed him. That’s right. Battled for Life! And after the battle is over, then God gives you of Himself. That is His true communion. The little bread and wafer just represents It. You shouldn’t take it ’less you’ve wrestled it out and become part of God.
107 Remember, at this time, the communion had never been instituted, not until before the death of Jesus Christ, hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of years later.
108 But Melchisedec, after His child Abraham had won the victory, Melchisedec met him and gave him wine and bread; showing that after this earthly battle is over, we will meet Him in the heavens and take the communion again. It’ll be the Wedding Supper. “I will not drink no more of the vine, or eat the fruit, until I eat it and drink it with you, anew, in My Father’s Kingdom.” Is that right?
109 Notice again, Melchisedec went to meet Abraham before he got back home. What a beautiful type here we have! Melchisedec meeting Abraham before he got back home, after the battle.
We meet Jesus in the air, before we get Home. That’s right. Second Thessalonians tells us that, for, “we meet Him in the air.” A beautiful type of Rebekah meeting Isaac, in the field, in the cool of the day. “We meet Him in the air.” Second Thessalonians tells us so. “For we which are alive and remain shall not prevent or hinder those which are asleep; for the trumpet of God shall sound; the dead in Christ shall rise first; we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them, to meet the Lord in the air.” Perfect, all these types.
110 Therefore, the theophany, if you have died and entered into that theophany, (what happens?) the theophany comes to the earth to pick up the redeemed body. And if you’re here in the air, you take the body to meet the theophany, there you are, “and caught up, and go to meet the Lord in the air.”
111 Who is this Melchisedec but God!
