KEY SCRIPTURE: Revelation 12:11 “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death”.
The fourth way for healing to be considered is healing through the communion.
The communion is a fellowship with the body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ through partaking of the ordinance of the bread and wine. 1st Corinthians 10:16 says “The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?”
The word communion means fellowship association, joint participation intercourse. By partaking of the body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ we come into that fellowship of oneness with His body and blood.
The scriptures reveal that the body and blood of our Lord Jesus is so powerful that when one takes it as an ordinary thing or meal without distinguishing it from other meals he does so with a damnation on himself or herself. 1st Corinthians 11:29. “For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. To discern the Lord’s body is to distinguish (set it apart) his body from other meals. You must understand this is a Holy thing. In 1st Corinthians 11:30 the scripture reads “for this cause many are weak and sickly among you and many sleep”. This happened to those who did not distinguished the Lord’s body. This implies then ,that those who take his body and blood with the understanding that the communion is indeed a fellowship with the blood and body of our Lord Jesus ,would be strong, healthy and ,alive.
Partaking of the communion with a clear understanding of its significance has brought healing to people in all kinds of cases. Some on the death bed have been brought to normal health as they partook of the communion. A lot of incurable conditions have been healed through partaking of the communion.
What must you do when taking the communion?
- Examine your heart 1st Corinthians 11:28.
- Acknowledge it is the body and blood of our Lord Jesus and therefore since Jesus is the same everyday it has the same power as Jesus was here personally. (Hebrews 13:8)
- Declare what you want to receive after partaking of it. (Mark 5: 28 & 29)
- Thank God for healing you after you have partaken of the communion.
Thank you Lord Jesus for giving me your body and blood for my healing and forgiveness of sin.
John 6:54 “Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.”
1 Corinthians 11:28 “But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup”.
