Today I saw the most incredible vision of Your face and the meaning of Communion.
In church today, at Los Osos Christian Fellowship, I was engaged in worship when I asked the Holy Spirit to show me the meaning of Communion.
Before my eyes, I saw the most beautiful face. Eyes shut with gentle lids, not forced or partially open. The gentleness of the closed eyes, like someone sleeping were slowly wrapped in a cloth that reminded me of muslin as it was placed across the closed eyes. I could hear weeping and tears were dripping on the cloth that was then wrapping around the chin and mouth. I became so distraught that my tears also began to drop onto the face. I noticed four distinct women crying and gently wrapping the face, their tears soaking the cloak. Behind the women, I saw three men putting their hands on the shoulders of the women as they wrapped His face. I wanted desperately the wrapped face to wake up and comfort us, because it was at this moment I realized I was seeing His face being wrapped and the pain in my heart at such a final act, a finality to what had happened was all there. I’ve never felt such heartache even though once I knew it was Him and He was to be raised, it still impacted the core of my very being – nothing television, preaching or reading about the sacrifice fully impacted me what the true meaning of his death meant – it was final, hopeless and heartbreaking, and loving.
My eyes opened, with the auditorium blurred with my tears hitting the carpet and the pastor, Josh Nash held communion.
I get it now, thank you Dear Jesus for what you did and giving me a small glimpse of he fulfillment of what you did to save us, to have relationship with You.
