The “Real Presence” in the Eucharist: Introduction

God’s WORD

    “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.”—John 17:3

    “Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness,
    but shall have the light of life.”—John 8:12

    “I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth
    on me should not abide in darkness.”—John 12:46

    “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because
    their deeds were evil.”—John 3:19

Two Kingdoms: Darkness and Light
Ever since Satan deceived Eve saying,

“Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the
day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and
ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil,”

mankind has sought to be god—one with the divine/God, Oneness, Ultimate Reality, the All. This concept from Satan’s Kingdom of Darkness is sometimes expressed as having “union with God” or “union with the divine”, meaning that through an experience, one has “become like God,” just as Satan wanted to be.

“I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.”—Isaiah 14:14

The “Real Presence” or Eating “Jesus” to become divine
According to Roman Catholic doctrine (which can not be changed), the
Eucharist (which is central to Roman Catholic doctrine) taken at Mass, is the
“Real Presence” of Jesus.

Each time that the Eucharist (the unbloody sacrifice of the host and wine) is taken, it is (according to Roman Catholic doctrine which can not be changed) transformed into the real body and real blood, soul, and divinity of Jesus by transubstantiation. (That is if an approved priest consecrates it.) This “Jesus”
is “sacrificed” over and over again every day throughout the year, in churches
all over the world.

Roman Catholic doctrine (which can not be changed), teaches that by partaking
of the Eucharist—”eating the Real Jesus and drinking his blood” at Mass—one
is initiated into Christianity, and although it does not seem to be common knowledge, “eating Jesus and drinking his blood” is the way oneness/union
is achieved with Jesus/God (if only for 15 minutes); or as some say, they are transformed into Jesus. The Roman Church claims they are the only Church with the “Real Presence” of Jesus. They have really fallen prey to Satan’s promise:

    “…ye shall be as gods.”—Genesis 3:5

The “Real Presence” Posts are the last in the series, “God’s Words or Man’s Words and Experience”
This next series of posts will discuss the centrality of the Eucharist in the Roman Catholic doctrine (which can not change), the influence that it has had in the world down through history, and how through the new evangelization and ecumenicalism, its massive tentacles continue to influence not only church denominations (not just contemplative emergent churches), and many “good” organizations, some political; but also our own government and leaders, in which it has been entrenched for quite some time. Rome ruled for centuries, and it wants to again.

God’s WORD

    “From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say,
    Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
    —Matthew 4:17

    “…Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, And saying, The time is fulfilled, and
    the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe
    the gospel.”—Mark 1:14, 15

    “And they went out, and preached that men should repent.”
    —Mark 6:12

    “To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.”—Acts 26:18

    “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may
    be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come
    from the presence of the Lord;”—Acts 3:19
