KEY SCRIPTURE: Matt 26:28 KJV For this is my blood of the New Testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
The communion is a mystery and the truth about it should be given to the body of Christ. A member of our congregation invited her husband who has been struggling with alcoholism. This man after been led to Christ was given the opportunity to take part in the communion service. The power of drinking was effectively broken from Him. What would have happened if we had said, he is a drunkard and must be prevented from partaking of it.?
We continue with our previous teachings as taught by the scriptures concerning unworthiness in taking the communion.
In our passage of scripture Apostle Paul shows what the people were really doing that made them to be taking it in an unworthy manner.
1Corinth 11:33 ,34 KJV “Wherefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, tarry one for another. And if any man hunger, let him eat at home; that ye come not together unto condemnation. And the rest will I set in order when I come.” From the evidence of this preceding scripture, we see that when they came together to partake of the communion, they were not waiting for the rest who had not come. He added, if any man hunger let him eat at home, meaning they ate the communion as a normal food to satisfy their hunger. They were treating the communion as any ordinary meal. They did not discern it as the body and blood of Jesus. This is what brought damnation to many of them.
As a result of this many of them were weak, sick and some fell asleep or died. This implies there’s so much power that if you treat it lightly, it can make you sick, weak or even die. It also means that it is also very powerful to make you STRONG, HEALTHY, OR HEAL YOU, AND KEEP YOU FROM DYING BEFORE COMPLETING YOUR TASK FOR THE LORD.
It is in the light of the above explanations and insight that the truth and the power of God through the communion be taught to the body of Christ. The Children of God must be made to understand that if they are to take it discerning the body and blood of Jesus, the power of sicknesses, weaknesses and untimely deaths. would be broken from their lives. All kinds of traditional barriers placed to prevent most children of God from taking the communion must stopped. When people get to know the truth and the power of God through the communion, they would stop their unholy lifestyle, giving reverence to the God who healed them
THOUGHT: THE COMMUNION IS A SUPERNATURAL DYNAMITE YO BLAST OFF THE WORKS OF SATAN IN YOUR LIFE
1Corinth 11:29 KJV” For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.”
John 6:57 KJV” As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.”
