I still wonder why it is that they go out and extend the invitation to those that are no part of them.. Jesus.. and his Apostles.. Were the only one attending.. Therefore.. To me that shows..exactly ..who he was speaking to.. They were the ones that would literally serve with him..
.
. But it does serve to build up the numbers.. And I ecpect that is it's main importance.

It disturbing to me that this dangerous cult of jws use JESUS death to luring unsuspecting ones to a kingdom hall,expecting to have a respectful service about JESUS ..

Instead they will get about 10 minutes of falsified incorrect talk about JESUS ....

Then comes what is typical each year ,the reminder is a Elder speaking about jws beliefs and offers free bible studies ..

IT'S all a Ploy and a Scam to lure Unsuspecting ones to the hall to gain free bible studies ..

In fact 1COR 11:26 indicates the opposite.

Since I am to shed the light on spiritual darkness of ignorance, as a teacher of God's word the Bible in these last days, before Jesus executes everyone who is not a subject of his Kingdom rulership or Jehovah's witnesss.

Everyone is invited to attend the Memorial of Jesus' death, because it is accepting that invitation and being there with us as observers shows you love Jesus for sacrificing his life for everyone or all mankind.
It is only through that sacrifice of his flesh and blood we gain forgiveness from Jehovah God for our sins.

Millions of people read the Christian magazines, Watchtower and Awake plus many other publications of Jehovah's witnesses, many would like to come to the Kingdom hall out of curiosity or to learn their Bible.
To give a public invitation to attend the Memorial of Jesus death or last supper with us, makes it easy for them to be included too.

We also know that people who reject Jehovah God's warning message today will not want to come, they don't need any direction from God's heavenly Kingdom today.

LOL, do you consider yourself one of the 144,000 JW's that think they are going to be saved ONLY?

I am going to observe the Lords Supper the last Sunday of this month as well.

You said these words..

"It is only through that sacrifice of his flesh and blood we gain forgiveness from Jehovah God for our sins."

But yet you still say that we MUST be a JW or associated with the organization to be saved, which one is it? Through Jesus, or the organization of JW's?

Luke 22:19
19 And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying,“This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.”

"For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said,'Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.' In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying,'This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.' For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death till He comes" (I Corinthians 11:23- 26).

He says, Take, Eat with the bread.
He says, This do as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me. For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lords Death till he comes.

How can you allow it to pass you by when he says to do it to remember him until he returns?

Matthew 26:26-28 NIV
26 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying,“Take and eat; this is my body.”
27 Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying,“Drink from it, all of you. 28 This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.
.
.Isn't the whole purpose of even Christian the need to have forgiveness of sin in order to have an everlasting life?
The scripture says to parkake of his body and blood in not only in remmentrance of him but also for forgiveness of sin.

. Thanks.. So often there is no thought given to an answer.. Some how I still believe that he was only speaking to his apostles.. And seems like the bible says. they we are to be convinced as to what we believe.. I am sorry that at the present time .. I am finding to hard to keep a straight line on my thought processes.. Will probably get worse instead of better.. but.. so far I have read 2 or 3 chapters. And i have you to thank for that..

Today's New Moon is your very own New Moon. Sure, you may be faced with challenges that you never imagined and it seems you are speaking with mothballs in your mouth, but soon you will be able to clear every hurdle placed before you. Plan your strategy and carry it out before the Full Moon in two weeks, when all your gambles will begin to pay off.

Some how I think there is a difference in our following in his footsteps... and the command he gave to his personal ..(Apostles on the night of the passover..
We ...are NOT them.. nor will we ever be.. We do know that he chose them.. And that he patitioned his father..for them to be allowed to join him in heaven upon their death.... I do believe that although there is much we can gleen from the Greek Scriptures.. That some of the writings were personal to those back then..and not to us as the reader..

Following your logic then NO ONE else partake of the bread or wine then.
