Words mean things. When we speak, the sound-waves continue longer than we can hear them, resonating in a circular motion until the wave becomes stretched so thin that the human ear cannot detect the noise any longer. These wavelengths reverberate and build upon one another, creating invisible matter. What we say becomes a tangible force in the air. It creates an aura that all present feel. It feeds other edifices of power, adding to the forces for either evil or good.
The world was created through the Word. Elohim, the Godhead, spoke into the formless void, and the sound waves vibrated through the darkness into the formation of Light and Life. Words and sounds were established as instruments of creativity. On the sixth day He spoke into creation a man after His own likeness. He then spoke beneficence and instruction over Adam, thus instigating the use of words for blessing and discipleship, which is to be reciprocated by thanksgiving and praise.
When Yahweh entered the world, He once more spoke life and light into the darkness. His words created forces of goodness in an aura formerly inhabited by the Lucifer, the prince of the power of the air. His words created commandments to return to His ways. His words blessed those whose hearts were receptive to the Spirit. His words cursed those whose progenitor was the father of lies––those who bore fruit in keeping with their forebear.
His words created new substances. The voice that spoke the world into being said, 'This is my body' and 'This is my blood'. He spoke that His Body and Blood would be the new Testament of the Faith He was establishing. Yeshua-Yahweh declared, "I am the bread of life. I am the living bread which has come down from heaven. Anyone who eats this bread will live for ever; and the bread that I shall give is my flesh, for the life of the world.' When the Jews disputed His word, Jesus retorted, 'In all truth I tell you, if you do not eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Anyone who does eat my flesh and drink my blood has eternal life, and I shall raise that person up on the last day. For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood lives in me and I live in that person. As the living Father sent me and I draw life from the Father, so whoever eats me will also draw life from me.'*
Many of His disciples left Him, but the Twelve remained. They did not understand how these things could take place, but they trusted in their Lord. They faithed that Jesus was the Word of eternal life, whose primary Sacrament was the essence of the New Covenant spoken into being by the Kol Elohim, the Voice of the Godhead.
Lord, sup with us in love divine;
Thy body and Thy blood,
That living bread, that heav'nly wine,
Be our immortal food.
Scripture from Luke 22 and John 6
