Dear friend ,I find it sad that you have been mislead to the point that you ignore over 2000 years of Christian History backed up by countless Miracles our Lord performs through the Eucharist.

Don't be sad for me...I didn't reject your church out of ignorance...I reject your church because I know what the bible says...

(a). Foreshadowing of the Eucharistic Sacrifice Gen. 14:18 - this is the first time that the word "priest" is used in Old Testament. Melchizedek is both a priest and a king and he offers a bread and wine sacrifice to God.

There was no sacrifice offered...The bread and wine offered was a memorial...A toast to a job well done

Psalm 76:2 - Melchizedek is the king of Salem. Salem is the future Jeru-salem where Jesus, the eternal priest and king, established his new Kingdom and the Eucharistic sacrifice which He offered under the appearance of bread and wine.Jesus has not established an earthly Kingdom...You can't be so nave to think that there will anyone killing God's chosen people, the Jews, or Christians in God's Kingdom...The Kingdom of God (Revelation) is future...It hasn't happened yet...But it will...

Psalm 110:4 - this is the prophecy that Jesus will be the eternal priest and king in the same manner as this mysterious priest Melchizedek. This prophecy requires us to look for an eternal bread and wine sacrifice in the future. This prophecy is fulfilled only by the Eucharistic sacrifice of the Catholic Church.

You made all that stuff up...Again, there was no wine and bread sacrifice, and to have these verses point to a cannibalistic feast on Jesus' body defies not only the bible, but one's imagination as well...You couldn't find a flesh and blood sacrifice in anything you cited so far if you used a spotlight and a microscope...

Malachi 1:11 - this is a prophecy of a pure offering that will be offered in every place from the rising of the sun to its setting. Thus, there will be only one sacrifice, but it will be offered in many places around the world. This prophecy is fulfilled only by the Catholic Church in the Masses around the world, where the sacrifice of Christ which transcends time and space is offered for our salvation. If this prophecy is not fulfilled by the Catholic Church, then Malachi is a false prophet.

Mal 1:11 For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same my name shall be great among the Gentiles; and in every place incense shall be offered unto my name, and a pure offering: for my name shall be great among the heathen, saith the LORD of hosts.

I thought your claim was that Jesus offers Himself for a continual sacrifice for you heathen...According to the verse, it's the heathen Gentiles that doing the offering...And nothing was said about God accepting the sacrifice...You people are heathen Gentiles??? I'm not...I'm a child of God...

I'd bet more money on Malachi being a false prophet than I would on your church being the group mentioned in the verse...

Exodus 12:14,17,24; cf. 24:8 - we see that the feast of the paschal lamb is a perpetual ordinance. It lasts forever. But it had not yet been fulfilled.

Exo 12:14 And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the LORD throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance forever.

Gee, will ya look at that...A memorial...This is to be 'observed' as a memorial...

Jer. 33:18 - God promises that His earthly kingdom will consist of a sacrificial priesthood forever. This promise has been fulfilled by the priests of the Catholic Church, who sacramentally offer the sacrifice of Christ from the rising of the sun to its setting in every Mass around the world.

Only in your wildest dreams...

Jer 33:15 In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of righteousness to grow up unto David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land.

Has the branch of righteousness executed judgment??? Nope...So you are wrong...

Jer 33:16 In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and this is the name wherewith she shall be called, The LORD our righteousness.

Has Judah been saved??? Nope...Does Jerusalem dwell in safety??? Nope...Is Jerusalem called the Lord our righteousness...Nope...You're wrong again...

Jer 33:17 For thus saith the LORD; David shall never want a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel;

So aren't you going to tell us that you already have a man sitting on the throne of the house of Israel??? Only one problem...Your man is sitting on a throne in Rome...Jesus will sit on the Throne in Jerusalem...You got the wrong man on the wrong throne in the wrong city...

Jer 33:18 Neither shall the priests the Levites want a man before me to offer burnt offerings, and to kindle meat offerings, and to do sacrifice continually.

So you guys are Levites now too, eh???

Zech. 9:15-16 - this is a prophecy that the sons of Zion, which is the site of the establishment of the Eucharistic sacrifice, shall drink blood like wine and be saved. This prophecy is fulfilled only by the priests of the Catholic Church.

So now your church is the Sons of Zion...And the Daughter of Jerusalem...Someone drinking blood??? You made that up...There's no one drinking blood in this chapter...You made it up...

Zec 9:14 And the LORD shall be seen over them, and his arrow shall go forth as the lightning: and the Lord GOD shall blow the trumpet, and shall go with whirlwinds of the south.

What'd you do??? Throw the rest of the chapter in the trash can??? There's no Catholic church here...There's no church here at all...This is the 2nd coming of Jesus at the end of the tribulation...On and on and on and on you people wrest the scriptures...

But it sounds good, to the people that don't open a bible to check you out...

It,s amazing that you wasted your time on Bible interpretations that have NO historical back round other then your own, or at best 500 years.

There are no miracles associated with the reformer,s and there are countless Eucharistic Miracles.

You worship a book like Islam does.
I worship a Man-Jesus Christ,His life is far beyond what is written in the Bible.

Just a note. This came up when you mentioned drinking blood.

Acts 15:19 Wherefore my sentence is, that we trouble not them, which from among the Gentiles are turned to God:

Acts 15:20 But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and [from] fornication, and [from] things strangled, and [from] blood.
