The Holy Mass is the general redemption of the world.Luke Haskell

The general redemption of the world makes individual redemption possible.

Paul says , for as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup you will show the death of the Lord until He comes again.

Why? Why do we need to show the death of the Lord until He comes again? Obviously we are showing it to the Father.

The cross is only a pagan execution without the covenant memorial of the cross always before the Father as the general redemption of the world.

There are two main parts to a Jewish sacrifice. The slaying of the victim and the offering up of the fruit of the sacrifice to the Father.

The Old Testament sacrifices were types so that in humility and prayer, we can see how they are fulfilled in the true Passover.

Think like a first century Jewish convert not like a 21 st century Protestant.

Do this in memory of me.

“The Apostles and early believers recognized the sacrificial character of Jesus' instruction, "Do this in remembrance (Gr. anamnasin) of me" is better translated "Offer this as my memorial sacrifice."

Anamnesis ("remembrance") has sacrificial overtones. It occurs only eight times in the NT and the Greek OT. All but once (Wisdom 16:6) it is in a sacrificial context (Hebrews 10:3, Leviticus 24:7, Numbers 10:10 and Psalm 38 [39] and 70 [70]). In these cases the term anamnesis can be translated as "memorial portion," "memorial offering," or "memorial sacrifice." Thus in the remaining two occurrences of anamnesis (Luke 22:19; 1 Corinthians 11:24), Christ’s words "Do this inremembrance of Me," can be translated as "Offer this for my memorial sacrifice."

What did Paul mean when he said “ we have an altar at which those who serve the tabernacle have no right to eat of?

“ Behold Israel according to the flesh are not those who offer the sacrifice partakers of the altar?”

He is writing to churches already living the religion and ritual of the New Covenant going deep into those mysteries of the rituals they were living.

Offer this for my memorial sacrifice

I have not come to abolish the law but to fulfill the law.


And thou shalt put upon them the dearest frankincense, that the bread may be for a memorial of the oblation of the Lord.

Leviticus 24:7

If at any time you shall have a banquet, end on your festival days, and on the first days of your months, you shall sound the trumpets over the holocausts, and the sacrifices of peace offerings, that they may be to you for a remembrance of your God. I am the Lord your God.

Numbers 10:10

Future fulfillment in the Eucharist.

For from the rising of the sun even to the going down, my name is great among the Gentiles, and in every place there is sacrifice, and there is offered to my name a clean oblation: for my name is great among the Gentiles, saith the Lord of hosts.

Malachi 1:11

Leviticus 7

11And this is the law of the sacrifice of peace offerings, which he shall offer unto the LORD. 12If he offer it for a thanksgiving, ( Eucharistasis) then he shall offer with the sacrifice of thanksgiving ( Eucharistasis) unleavened cakes mingled with oil, and unleavened wafers anointed with oil, and cakes mingled with oil, of fine flour, fried. 13Besides the cakes, he shall offer for his offering leavened bread with the sacrifice of thanksgiving ( Eucharistasis) of his peace offerings. 14And of it he shall offer one out of the whole oblation for an heave ( Raised into the air before the Father) offering unto the LORD, and it shall be the priest's that sprinkleth the blood of the peace offerings.

It is present so that redemption continues until the end of time.

The prophecy fulfilled of the laws written on our hearts is part of the general redemption by way of the 7 virtues.

And this is the testament which I will make unto them after those days, saith the Lord. I will give my laws in their hearts, and on their minds will I write them:

Hb 10:16

When the Holy Spirit came into the world by way of the cross, spiritually a new heaven and new earth was established. In this transformation came the law of conscience on a new level.

These things I have spoken to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you shall have distress: but have confidence, I have overcome the world.

Jn 16:33

For when the Gentiles, who have not the law, do by nature those things that are of the law; these, having not the law, are a law to themselves. 15Who shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience bearing witness to them.

Rm 2:14

Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do, and does not do it, to him it is sin.

Jm 4:17

The true Passover establishes the general redemption. The laws written on our hearts created our culpability for not following truth.
