If you ever accepted the Apostle’s Creed and took Communion, you have a blood oath, but chances are, you are too ignorant to know that.
You just never thought about it that way, but upon any reflection at all, that is the only way to interpret what you’ve done.
What else do you do, when you accept the wine in token of his blood?
By word and deed you have bound yourself to the Creed.
“I believe in one god, the Father Almighty, maker of Heaven and Earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified dead and buried…..”
And you drank the wine and ate the bread and never thought a single thing beyond that, never recognized the Apostle’s Creed as a Blood Oath bound with Communion wine and your own blood, his blood in your blood.
How stupid can we all be, if this is not apparent?
How many “good Christians” out there have been thoughtlessly slurping up Communion every Sunday of their lives, and never realized what they were doing?
Lord, help us, so that we may not perish for our ignorance….
Many of the same people out there poking each other in the ribs and whispering, “Hey, be careful with that Anna von Reitz character, she’s got a blood oath with the Pope!” have no idea that they have a blood oath themselves—- and not just with the Pope—with every Believer, of every denomination worldwide, who accepts the Apostle’s Creed and takes Communion.
That’s right, all you Methodists are yoked with all you Presbyterians, and the Church of England is cheek and jowl with the Lutherans, the Weslyans, the Nazarenes, and the Full Immersion Community Baptist Temple. And like it or not, you are yoked to every faithful Catholic and member of the Eastern Orthodoxy, too.
That’s what it means to be “one body” in Christ. His blood with your blood, your blood with his blood, and with the blood of all those who are sanctified, alive and dead and yet to come.
Lord, forgive us for being stupid. We remember your words. We don’t know what we are doing….. help us to wake up and become fully conscious….
Blood oaths are common as dirt, and you all have plenty of them.
What do you think marriage is, if not a blood oath? What do you think all your kids are, but living blood oaths? Your blood bound to your spouse’s blood in living 3-D?
Lord, give me the patience to endure to the end, all the thoughtless ignorance of this world…..
