Healing and the Lord's Supper

Healing and the Lord's Supper

By John Chopores


Healing comes by the blood of Christ

Healing comes to Christians by the body and blood of Christ Cf.1CO 10:16 The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ? (KJV)

1CO 10:17 For we {being} many are one bread, {and} one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread. (KJV)


The life of a man is in his blood Cf. GEN 9:4 But flesh with the life thereof, {which is} the blood thereof, shall ye not eat. (KJV)

When a Christian takes part in the Lord's Supper he/she is taking part in the life blood of Christ. If that Christian takes part "unworthily", that person is putting sin, which is bad blood into the system of Christ and that blood and the person doing it will be rejected!

(1Corinthians 11:27-30 KJV)

(27) Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink {this} cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. (28) But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of {that} bread, and drink of {that} cup. (29) For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. (30) For this cause many {are} weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.


Being a part of a church

Being part of a church is helpful for getting healed Cf. JAM 5:16 Confess {your} faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. (KJV)

If you do not meet with other Christians, who will you confess your faults to and how can you pray for one another?


Also, who will you eat the Lord's Supper with?

Also, what if God has a gift of healing for you through the hands of another Christian? Cf. 1CO 12:9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; (KJV)1CO 12:12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also {is} Christ. (KJV)


God wants us to work with and for each other cf. 1CO 12:14 For the body is not one member, but many. (KJV)


Besides, it is the will of God that we meet together Cf. HEB 10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some {is}; but exhorting {one another}: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. (KJV)

And it would be sin for us to not do the will of God! Cf .JAM 4:17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth {it} not, to him it is sin. (KJV)

At this point, I would like to point out that a person having sin in his/her life is not always the reason that a person is sick cf. (John 9:2-3 KJV)

(2) And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? (3) Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.


Divine healing is a part of the works of Christ

By the way, the works of God were made manifest when Jesus healed the man! cf. JOH 9:7 And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing. (KJV)
