[25] Some Object That Christs Sacrifice can not Be Repeated

Yes we agree that the Sacrifice of Christ is one, but it is a perpetual sacrifice.

Christ wanted it to perpetuate, otherwise why did He say Do this until I return.

By handing the Sacrament to Saint Paul years after His resurrection, He showed His desire for its perpetuity.

Also note:

(Psa 110:4) The LORD has sworn And will not relent, "You are a priest forever According to the order of Melchizedek."

(Heb 7:21) (for they have become priests without an oath, but He with an oath by Him who said to Him: "The LORD has sworn And will not relent, 'You are a priest forever According to the order of Melchizedek'"),

The expression "'You are a priest forever According to the order of Melchizedek'"), meant its perpetuity.

We wish to reiterate the great benefits of partaking of this Sacrament, and the loss incurred by not partaking of it.
