I think most of us understand the cup of wine that is drank in the communion. It represents the blood that Jesus shed for us for the forgiveness of sins. But the bread is another story. I want you to understand its significance. Jesus said to take and eat of my body that was broken for you and as oft as you drink the cup and eat my body do in rememberance of me. He sais this at the last supper with his disciples.
The bread is his body that took stripes on it for the healing of your body. When the children of Israel were to leave the land of Goshen they celebrated the passover the night before. They killed the lamb and put the blood over the doorpost so the death angel would pass over them. They prepared and ate the lamb they killed. That lamb represented the body of Jesus. When they ate it, it went into their stomache and was digested and then the nutrients went out into their blood stream and healed their body. So when they came out of Egypt the next day, the Bible says there was not one feeble person among them! There were three million people there and not one feeble, let alone sick. They understood their covenant with God and kept the passover.
Today when we take communion we are doing just what they did. But most people don't understand the bread we eat. It is representative of Jesus body that we are eating. When we eat that bread it is taken by faith and we believe it to digest in our stomaches and the nutrients to go into our blood stream and heal us. Jesus took stripes for our healing at calvary and we are healed.
The Bible also says there are many weak and sickly among you because they do not discern the Lord's body. This is true because many do not understand what Jesus did for us at calvary except that he shed his blood so we could be forgiven of our sins. That is true alright, but he got healing for our bodies also at the same time. This is not taught in the church like it should be and therefore we have a bunch of sick Christians among us. It further goes on to say that many sleep (die) because they don't discern the Lord's body. They just don't understand what it means to eat the bread and what it's suppose to do for them.
We need to understand there is healing in the communion table for ever child of God. But they don't know this and can't believe for it. I want this to enlighten you today about the communion so the next time you partake of it that you will understand what you are doing and take it by faith believeing for your healing.
It's there folks, so do it in remembrance of what Jesus did for you at calvary. He provided for everything you will ever need in life and healing for every sickness and disease that will ever come upon human beings. The bread is for the healing of your body. This is what it represents. This is just one more way you can obtain your healing if you understand it and do it by faith.
