The original Communion by Pastor Melissa Scott

Pastor Melissa Scott tells us that Noah gets out of the ark as Genesis 8:20, he gets out of the ark. What do you read? “Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; took of every clean beast, and of every clean foul, and offered burnt offerings on the altar. This pattern. What do you think? God was so specific when He said build the ark, gave him specific measurements. And then he just came out of the ark like the Love Boat and starts building an altar? Just like that?

Because he thought so? No. He had to have been doing that before. I asked the poor lady sitting beside me yesterday, I said “Where’d he get the fire from?” Just leave that alone. These are smart people. These are not silly primates, as people like to paint them as. So you have this offering here. Now we’re going to go though the Bible. Not through the whole Bible but at least a little bit through the Bible.

Go to Genesis 14, another type of offering being offered, Genesis 14:20. If you read this is where Abraham – in fact let’s just read from verse 18 because you see there is an exchange “Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine,” there’s the original Communion, “bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God. And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth: And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And,” it says what? “And he gave him tithes of all.”

Now again a lot of people will say “Well the tithe,” tithes and offerings, specifically tithes but tithes and offerings, “that’s part of the law.” No, as you read through the Bible there are so many examples of offerings. This is the first example of tithes. But I can guarantee you something. That this wasn’t just something made up. There was already something going on. I believe if we read the apocryphal literature we’ll find much more being revealed. But just straight out of the Bible. Okay, that’s the first tithes, we have offerings.
