Receiving Communion…

I HEAR CHAINS BREAKING…

One of the most valued things I celebrate and I don’t hear many speak of in their prayer life is ‪#‎COMMUNION‬. Yet you might be surprised to know that the Bible gives us one and only one reason Christians are weak and sick, and die prematurely.

PARTAKING OF THE LORD’S ‪#‎BODY‬ BRINGS HEALING/ WHOLENESS/ RESTORATION

1 Corinthians 11:29-30 (AMP)

29 For anyone who eats and drinks [without solemn reverence and heartfelt gratitude for the sacrifice of Christ], eats and drinks a judgment on himself if he does not [a]recognize the body [of Christ]. 30 That [careless and unworthy participation] is the reason why many among you are weak and sick, and a number sleep [in death].

In the King James Version… 30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.

Notice Paul writes “For this cause” (reason), He did not say, “for these causes” or reasons… And what is “this reason”… “not discerning/ recognizing the Lord’s body”.

God has ordained the Holy Communion as a key channel of health and wholeness (even restoration) for His people.

The early church believed this. Acts 2:42 (KJV) And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

They took God at His Word. It is no wonder that they experienced God’s power. In Acts 2:43, 46, we read that they broke bread from house to house, and many signs and wonders were done through the apostles.

THE ‪#‎BLOOD‬ IS FOR FORGIVENESS

Colossians 1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

Ephesians 1:7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

I am convinced that if the body of Christ would return back to daily observance of the BODY & BLOOD OF CHRIST. Many would again see life come back to their marriages, homes, health, finances, ministries, spiritual walk…

When you hold the bread in your hand, you are coming in touch with the greatest expression of His love. This love made Him endure the cruel stripes on His back and caused Him to subject His body to be beaten, bruised and broken so that yours can be whole. And when you partake, you celebrate and release your faith to receive His health and wholeness and perfection in exchange for your broken health, marriage, home, finance, ministry, spiritual walk…

When you drink the wine or juice, you are reminded that the blood of the sinless Son of God did not just bring you forgiveness – it made you forever righteous, holy and blameless, in His eyes. So today, you have perfect standing before the Father and His ears are attentive to your softest sigh.

My prayer is that this will stir up your faith to receive all the blessings He has in store for you through His body and body.

‪#‎UNCHNED‬ through observance of His Broken Body and Shed Blood for YOU.

In His Love, A-M <{{{><
