Bread and wine, Is it the Lord’s flesh or what?

Well, maybe Jesus’ word trumps Polycarp’s.

It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, [they] are spirit, and [they] are life. – John 6:63

For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. – 1 John 5:8

Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. – Jn 6:68

And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God. -Jn 6:69

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. -John 1:1

Rev 10:9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take [it], and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.

Rev 10:10 And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.

Jn 15:7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

1 Cor 11:26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come.

27 Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink [this] cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.

And that’s that. Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God. It starts at salvation, when the Word bears seed and the sheep hears the word of God and it begets faith in him to receive the Word of God. The son of God enters “cometh in the flesh” gives him eternal life.

In his blood is salvation, not cannibalism; in the bread we represent healing.

Jesus said he was GOING AWAY so the Comforter could come, and that we would then do even “greater things” than he did.

So he’s not here in the flesh anymore. Get over it. Thank God he’s in heaven.
