God’s Channel of Divine Health: Communion – Day 2

As I shared in Day One of our study into Communion, this year God has been helping me rebuild the ancient foundations of faith, and Health and Wholeness Through the Holy Communion is one of the books He led me to early this year, when I was wanting to know more about communion.daytwocommunion

So basically, here for Day 2, I’m giving a quick outline of the first chapter.  This book is written by Joseph Prince, and I strongly encourage you to purchase it.  The purpose of me outlining the first chapter is so that you will be inspired to dig deeper and read further.   Here is a youtube clip of Pastor Prince preaching if you would like to hear further on this topic.

 

Pastor Prince makes the point early on this book, that our greatest blessing is divine health, because without health we cannot enjoy wealth, or family or much of anything, and ponders why so many Christians are sick when Jesus favourite occupation was healing.

 

A line from this chapter reads: “Jesus did not walk on water all the time, He did not calm storms all the time, but He healed all the time.”

 

He also discusses how healing is part of God’s nature back in the old covenant too, when God brought the Israelites out of Egypt with none feeble among them. (Psalm 105:37)

 

Pastor Prince brings forward the case that the Bible only gives one reason for Christians being sick and weak.

 

1 Corinthians 11:29-30English Standard Version (ESV)

29 For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment on himself. 30 That is why many of you are weak and ill, and some have died.

 

 

So the opposite would be that if we do discern or understand why we are taking communion, that we would walk in health and be strong.

 

Pastor Prince then goes on in this chapter to share several testimonies of people he has met who grasped hold of the fact that the blood is for our forgiveness, and that Jesus body is for our healing, and this is part of the reason God has placed an emphasis on taking communion.

 

“In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace” Ephesians 1:7 NIV

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.  Isaiah 53:5 NKJV

 

So for this study, I just want to have bite sized pieces to look into.  I’m aware that I haven’t used every possible Scripture available to back up anything here, but remember we have 29 more days.  Ask God to show you His truth.  I’ve been praying for His truth and these foundations are a whole lot more substantial than what I grew up with in a Christian home.

 

Remember I said I was going to take communion every day for 31 Days?  Well, one of the reasons for this is my health.  I’m not an unwell person by any means and I do care for my body with exercise and proper nutrition, in fact I sell nutrition to other people, but sometimes even nutrition doesn’t cut it and we need supernatural intervention.

Do you have a list of physical, emotional or spiritual breakthroughs that you are believing for?

‘It’s by the blood of the Lamb and word of our testimony that we overcome.’   Revelation 12:11

 

I’ll meet you back here soon for Day 3

If the thought of following along for 31 Days seems overwhelming, but you want to dig deep on this topic too, I invite you to sign up for 7 Days of Rediscovering the Holy Communion. I’ve condensed the very best bits down to a Bible Study that is manageable yet incredibly deep, and I’d love you to join us.
