Was Communion Wine first served by God Himself?


“And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.” [Matthew 26:26-29]

“When the day of Pentecost had fully come, there was a bunch of little, weeping people, crying and going on. "And when the day of Pentecost fully come..." Suddenly there came a priest up the road, with a kosher box, communion box, there to, "Lick out you tongue now, and I'll drink the wine"? What nonsense! “Up the road come a Protestant preacher, and said, "We'll take the right hand of fellowship, and take six months of probation"? Huh! Nonsense! "I'll sprinkle you. I'll baptize you. I'll take you this way, take you into the church, give the right hand of fellowship." Nonsense!” [The Seal Of God, Jeffersonville IN 54-0514]

“Jerusalem was first in Gentile possession, and the King of Jerusalem, or Salem (which was meaning, "the King of Peace, the King of righteousness"), met Abraham as he returned and give him the communion, bread and wine, thousands of years, or hundreds of years before bread and wine was ever an ordinances in the church. And he was the King of Jerusalem.” [Melchisedec The Great Prince And King, Jeffersonville, IN 55-0109M]

“When Abraham met Him, he give Him the tithes of all that he possessed. You know what they did? The first thing they did was set down (I feel really emotional.), set down and broke bread and drink wine and taken the communion after the battle was over.” [Perfection, Jeffersonville, IN 56-0610]

“Melchisedec, the King of Salem, also represented Himself among the other kings. And notice, the battle was over, the Spirit of God in Abraham, of Christ, that had brought back his fallen brother, then restored him back to his rightful condition, to all that he had lost. He had brought it back. And when he did, He brought out bread and wine, the communion. Can't you see who that Melchisedec was? It was God. Brought out the communion, after the battle. When the battle is finally ended, we will meet Melchisedec again, bless God, who blessed Abraham there, and gave him the blessing, and give him bread and wine, the communion. And when the battle is over, we'll meet Him. We who are the heirs of the promise of Abraham, joint heirs with Christ in the Kingdom, shall meet Him at the end of the road, and take bread and wine, again, when the battle is over. Who is this Melchisedec? "The One that had no father, had no mother, had no beginning of days or the ending of life." He will be There to give the communion again. Now, this Melchisedec, the King of Salem, Prince, Priest of the Most High, met Abraham and blessed him. And gave Him his tithings, Abraham did. And He was the King of Salem. And He brought out bread and wine, the communion, and gave it to Abraham after the battle, after the men had been won over.” [Hebrews Chapter Seven, Jeffersonville, IN 57-0915E]

“No place in the Bible did they ever stick out their tongue and take the holy eucharist, and the priest drink the wine and call it the Holy Ghost. Never in the Bible did they ever shake hands and give the right hand of fellowship and call it the Holy Ghost. Never did anybody raise up and say, "now I'm a believer," and receive the Holy Ghost.


If it did, here's the way that Acts 2 would have to read, "And when the day of Pentecost had fully come, down the road come a Roman priest, and he had his collar turned around. He walks up, and said, 'All of you stick out your tongue now and take the holy eucharist, first communion.'" Wouldn't that be some way to read Acts 2?” [Why Are We Not A Denomination, Jeffersonville, IN 58-0927]

“We read that all Abraham's life, he was a pilgrim and a stranger to the world, for his one ambition was to find that city, whose Builder and Maker was God. He struck something. He caught God, and a faith in that God, that he foresaw the New Jerusalem. And he put his pack on his back, and became a wanderer, not just floating about without any purpose, he had faith that there was a city, whose Builder and Maker was God, an eternal city. He had a purpose in life to find that place. And may I say here, that one day when the battle was over, he met the King of that city. And He give him the communion, bread and wine, Melchisedec.” [Faith Is Our Victory, Jeffersonville, IN 58-1004]

“Notice Abraham. There he was. And he met Melchisedec, which is the King of Salem, King of Jerusalem, King of peace, without father, without mother. And notice, He blessed Abraham after the battle was over. When the battle was over, He blessed Abraham. And notice what he did. He brought out wine and bread and give it to him. Wine and bread is the communion. They took communion after the battle was over. Sure, one of these days we're going to take communion again when the battle is over. When we brought back the lost children, the lost sheep of the fold, have brought them back into reconciliation, and life is finished, then we'll have communion again with the Melchisedec of heaven, Christ. He will bring out the bread and wine, and we'll enjoy it together.” [The Faith Of Abraham, Los Angeles, CA 59-0415E]

“As soon as the battle was over, what did he bring out? Bread and wine, the communion. And they took communion after the battle was over. Let's fight now, bring back the lost brother. Jesus said, "I'll drink it anew with you in the Father's Kingdom." After the battle's over. Amen. Melchisedec came out, met Abraham, and gave him communion.” [Abraham's Seed, San Jose, CA 59-0423]

“For as oft as you eat this bread, and drink this cup, you do shew forth the Lord's death till he comes.” See? It's a communion. I do realize and do agree that the--the body of the Lord, the living Word is Christ Himself. But these are symbols just like baptism, and footwash, and other ordinances of the church. But communion is absolutely essential for the bread, now, bread and wine.” [Questions And Answers, Jeffersonville, IN 59-0628E]

“Brother George Wright, for years has made the Communion wine (And I'm closing.), has made the Communion wine for the church. Brother Roy Roberson (back there) called me, and said, "Brother Branham, let's go down and get the Communion wine from Brother Wright, which is setting here, him and his family.” [My New Ministry, Jeffersonville, IN 59-1115]
