Often we see Jesus and His disciples eating and drinking. Eating and drinking is often presented as a form of obedience and salvation; it is also a promise for persevering while we wait. Furthermore, it is at the Fathers table that we shall set in Heaven.

Jn 18:11 So Jesus said to Peter, “Put your sword into its sheath; shall I not drink the cup that the Father has given me?”

Jn 4:34 Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to accomplish his work.

Jesus thirst is a thirst to drink the cup of God’s will. The food of His life is the plate of God’s will therefore; 1 Co 11:26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

Mt 26:26 Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is my body.” Mt 26:27 And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, saying, “Drink of it, all of you, Mt 26:28 for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. Mt 26:29 I tell you I will not drink again of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.”

We must choose for we cannot eat a pleasant meal in peace with the Lord and then set down with the Devil for a meal of destruction.1 Co 10:21 You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons.
