KEY SCRIPTURE: John 6:51 KJV” I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live forever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world”.
The Lord kept iterating that He is that living bread who came down from heaven. He added that, the bread He would give is His flesh. The Lord was in effect saying that He would be crucified and die for the world, so that anyone who would believe in Him would have life. This preceding explanation is the literal meaning of the statement He said about the bread being His flesh. Inspite of this interpretation, at the last supper with His disciples, the Lord took the bread, broke it and said, ‘This is my body which is broken for you’. When supper was ended, He took a cup and said, Take and drink all of it for this is my blood of the New Testament, Matthew 26:26-27. As much as He expected all men to believe in Him, He likewise expect all Christians to partake of the communion.
The Lord Jesus knowing the great importance of this ordinance to all Christians, after His resurrection and ascension to heaven, had to instruct apostle Paul to tell all Christians to be observing it. (1 Corinth 11:23). Just listen to what the Lord said about taking His flesh. John 6:56 KJV” He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.” The Lord expect every one of His children to partake of His body. Unfortunately, the kind of teachings most denominations give, keep Christians away from partaking.
I have, by the grace of God seen amazing miracles through the observance of the ordinance of the communion. We have seen ovarian cysts dissolved, lots of people with low hemoglobin levels rise to normal levels, hepatitis destroyed, moving objects in the stomach just vanish, itching bodies stopped, ulcers humiliated, vaccine complications stopped, and many more. Some of these people were very apprehensive at taking the communion, because of previous teaching they have been given, but as the scriptures were objectively looked at, they took it and were wonderfully healed.
What is the meaning of the word communion? It is from the Greek word “koinonia” and has the following meanings fellowship, association, partnership, participation, intercourse. In 1 Corinth 10:16 the bible 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 scripture says when the wine is blessed, it becomes the communion or the fellowship with the blood of Jesus. The bread is also the communion or fellowship, participation with the body of Jesus. Partaking of the communion makes the person one with the body and blood of Jesus. To be continued.
THOUGHT: THE COMMUNION IS A MIGHTY BLESSING, OPEN UP TO BENEFIT FROM IT.
