A teaching on taking Communion

I put this together a few months back and thought I should really get it on my blog.
Growing up going to church, then going back in my thirties I had been taking communion for a long time without really understanding why I was taking it.
I kinda thought I was just taking it to "remind" myself of what Jesus did for me. I didn't think there was any real meaning behind it.
I was wrong.

I was never really taught how to discern the Lords body.
I thought I would share with you all what I have learned, so you too can participate in the blessings of discerning the Lords body.

If you are interested, please read on! :)

God’s nature is to heal.

(Yes, It really is. I too was taught that sometimes God gives us sickness to teach us things, or "allows" sickness in our lives, etc, etc..... that is wrong teaching, it is what Satan wants us to believe so we don't have faith for healing!)

Jesus said that when we see him, we see the father.

John 14:9

Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?

  When Jesus walked the earth, most of his miracles were in the area of healing.  The bible says that Jesus went about doing good and healing ALL who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.

Acts 10:38

38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.

He did not walk on water all the time, HE did not calm the storms all the time, but he healed ALL the time!

When God brought the children of Israel out of Egypt to bring them into the promise land, he made sure that NONE of them were sick.

Psalm 105:37

37 He also brought them out with silver and gold,
and there was none feeble among His tribes.

 God’s word said that NONE were feeble; they were all healed, healthy, and WHOLE. That was and is still God’s will for his people today! All healed, healthy and whole!

So, if it’s God’s will, why is there still believers that are sick?

The bible gives ONE reason. 

Paul says in 1 Cor 11:29

1 Corinthians 11:29-30

29 For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner[a] eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord’s[b]body.
For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep.


Failure to  know why they were partaking when they came to the table.

So that means, If we do discern the Lord’s body, we WILL walk in His health and wholeness!

God does not want us to put our trust in natural means to stay healthy.

2 Corinthians 10:4

For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal

Trust in GOD to keep you healthy, and God has ordained the Holy Communion as a key channel of health and wholeness for his people.

Discerning the Lords body

This has been taught wrong in the church. We were taught that discerning meant we are too not partake if we have sins in our life.
Paul was not saying that we should not take if we are unworthy; rather he was saying do not partake in an unworthy manner!!
The Corinthians partook unworthily because they did not recognize that the broken body of the Lord was meant to bring them health and wholeness.
They treated it as a ritual and missed out on the blessing.
If your attitude is “It’s just a piece of bread” then that’s what it WILL be.

Paul yelled at them because when they came to the Lords table, those who were hungry rushed for their turn, and others guzzled the wine until they became drunk. They were not discerning the Power of the Lord’s broken body.

Jesus wants us to take the bread and believe that His body was broken so that our bodies can be made well, and when we discern it that way, we are partaking worthily.


Jesus told us to “ remember” him by partaking of his body and blood.
verb (used with object)
To recall to the mind by an act or effort of memory; think of again:  To possess, or exercise; re-mem-ber

Luke 22:17-20

17 Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, “Take this and divide it among yourselves; 18 for I say to you,[a] I will not drink of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.”
19 And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.”
20 Likewise He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is shed for you.

What does he want us to remember? What did his body and blood on the cross do for us?

Isaiah 53:4-5

Surely He has borne our griefs
And carried our sorrows;
Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten by God, and afflicted.
But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.

Psalm 103:2-3

Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And forget not all His benefits:
Who forgives all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases,

His  blood~
Sins forgiven
We are made righteous
Washed daily by his blood, ( like a rock in  a flowing river, constantly being washed)
Free of condemnation and guilt.

His Body~
Imparted healing, strength, youth,
Brings resurrection life
Like a transfusion from Jesus into us.

From any oppression from the devil.






Colossians 2:15

15 Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.

 By taking communion, we are also proclaiming to the principalities and powers that they have been disarmed.
(Demons have to flee)

Matthew 26:26

Jesus Institutes the Lord’s Supper

26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed[a] and broke it, and gave it to the disciples and said, “Take, eat; this is My body.”

Jesus Body was so full of health, that even his clothes were soaked with health!!!
(This is the impartation or transfusion you want from Jesus! He is living in you!!!  If you have him imparted in you, and he is full of health and healing, YOU are full of health and healing! When you touch someone they receive HIM, which is healing and deliverance. )

 How often should we partake?

1 Corinthians 11:26

 For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes.

Every day.

Take it OFTEN. If you’re ill, take it like medicine. More than once a day.
Sometimes healing may be instant, sometimes it may be gradual. Take it in faith. J
