Welcome to Healing Nexus
Today we are considering the role of communion in our healing and health. I grew up in a setting where we were taught that if you must partake in the communion, you must be a total saint; give your life to Christ, must have done water baptism. Well, I’m not saying that the belief is wrong but it chases people away from taking the communion whenever we take it.
What is the composition of the Communion?
And he took BREAD, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my BODY which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.
Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This CUP is the new testament in my BLOOD, which is SHED FOR YOU.
According to this passage, we can see that the constituents are:
- Bread which signifies the Body of Jesus.
- Cup (wine) which means Jesus’ blood.
Now, let’s start with the latter. What’s the work of the wine? The wine means “new covenant to save”; so, if the blood of Jesus is meant to wash away our sin, then it’s the even “sinner” that needs to take it most with understanding, so we don’t need to send them away.
Now, what about the bread? It stands for the body of Jesus. One of the major works of the bread is the work of healing. Let’s check Paul’s speech to the Corinthians;
1 Corinthians 11:29-30
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.
For you to understand this verse very well, firstly read verse 30 and ask yourself that for what cause?, The cause is then the last statement in verse 29, NOT DISCERNING THE LORD’S BODY.
It’s because they do not discern this body that makes them to be weak, sick and even dead.
You may want to ask what’s the correlation is between the Lord’s body and healing, then let’s go to Isaiah’s prophecy:
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his STRIPES we are HEALED.
You can see STRIPE and HEALING going together here; when JESUS was striped, He was striped in His Body, so the body tore first before the blood gushed out.
The implication of this is that God first settled sickness even before dealing with sin. And you’ll agree with me now that it’s not the blood that heals but the body, the blood rather forgives.
Reply by saying; The blood forgives and the body heals.
