Chapter 26 - Of the Communion of the Saints.

Section 1.) All saints, that are united to Jesus Christ their Head, by His Spirit, and by faith, have fellowship with Him in His graces, sufferings, death, resurrection, and glory:(1) and, being united to one another in love, they have communion in each other's gifts and graces,(2) and are obliged to the performance of such duties, public and private, as do conduce to their mutual good, both in the inward and outward man.(3)
(1) 1Jn 1:3; Eph 3:16-19; Jn 1:6; Eph 2:5,6; Php 3:10; Ro 6:5,6; 2Ti 2:12 (2) Eph 4:15,16; 1Co 12:7; 1Co 3:21-23; Col 2:19 (3) 1Th 5:11,14; Ro 1:11,12,14; 1Jn 3:16-18; Gal 6:10
------------------------------------
Section 2.) Saints by profession are bound to maintain an holy fellowship and communion in the worship of God, and in performing such other spiritual services as tend to their mutual edification;(1) as also in relieving each other in outward things, according to their several abilities and necessities. Which communion, as God offereth opportunity, is to be extended unto all those who, in every place, call upon the name of the Lord Jesus.(2)
(1) Heb 10:24,25; Ac 2:42,46; Isa 2:3; 1Co 11:20 (2) Ac 2:44,45; 1Jn 3:17; 2Co Chapters 8 and 9; Ac 11:29,30
------------------------------------
Section 3.) This communion which the saints have with Christ, doth not make them in any wise partakers of the substance of His Godhead; or to be equal with Christ in any respect: either of which to affirm is impious and blasphemous.(1) Nor doth their communion one with another, as saints, take away, or infringe the title or propriety which each man hath in his goods and possessions.(2)
(1) Col 1:18,19; 1Co 8:6; Isa 42:8; 1Ti 6:15,16; Ps 45:7; Heb 1:8,9 (2) Ex 20:15; Eph 4:28; Ac 5:4

  • "And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled." ~ (Rev 6:9-11)
