Communion - The Body and The Blood

Matthew 26:26-29

26 Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is my body.” 27 And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, saying, “Drink of it, all of you, 28 for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. 29 I tell you I will not drink again of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom.”


I Corinthians 11:23-32

23 For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the samenight in which He was betrayed took bread; 24 and when He had given thanks, He broke itand said, “Take, eat; this is My body which is brokenfor you; do this in remembrance of Me.”25 In the same manner Healso tookthe cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”

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

Examine Yourself

27 Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks thiscup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. 28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup. 29 For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. 30 For this reason many areweak and sick among you, and many sleep. 31 For if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged. 32 But when we are judged, we are chastened by the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world.


The Body of Christ:

I Corinthians 6:19-20

19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, 20 for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.

The Body of Christ was broken so your body could be the dwelling place for the Holy Spirit.


The Blood of Christ:

The first time Jesus shed his blood was in the Garden.

            Matthew 24:36 “Not my will but Thy will be done.”

            He won back our will power.

The second time Jesus shed his blood was on the whipping post.

            Isaiah 53:5 “and with his stripes we are healed.”

            Stripes - to strike until blood is drawn.

The third time Jesus shed his blood was with the crown of thorns.

            Hebrews 9:14 “purify our conscience from dead works to serve the living God.”

            Enabled us to be Spirit-led Thinking men and women of God.

The fourth time Jesus shed his blood was when the put nails in his hands.

            When Nails went through the hands of Christ it won back our ability to bless.

            Bless - the ability to bring Kingdom of Heaven things in manifestation here on the earth.

The fifth time Jesus bled was when his feet were pierced.

            When his feet were pierced it was Christ regaining our dominion on the earth.

            Dominion - to rule with authority

The sixth time Jesus Shed his blood was when he was pierced in his side.

            Blood - Justification

            Water - Sanctification

The seventh time Jesus bled was the internal bleeding of bruises.

            This was to heal us of all the internal issues we deal with; mainly 3 things: Iniquities, Hurts & Inner Vows.
