Matthew 26:26 - … “Take, eat; this is My body.”
Can u imagine the Lord sick, nursing a cold or fever while He walked on earth? No, our Lord Jesus was never sick! He was vibrant, full of life and full of health. When He told His disciples, “Take, eat; this is My body”, they could practically visualize what it meant bcoz they had lived and walked with this Man. They had seen people without hands or feet made whole when they touched His body. (Matthew 15:30–31)
Even His clothes were soaked with His health! A woman who had a bleeding condition for 12 years — no doctor could cure her — was healed immediately when she touched the hem of His garment. If the hem of His garment was soaked with His health, vibrancy, energy and divine radiance, how much more His body!
You know, some of the most encouraging verses in the Gospels are these: “And as many as touched Him were made well” (Mark 6:56), for “power went out from Him and healed them all”. (Luke 6:19) I love those verses! That is our Jesus!
The Bible says that they put sick people along the streets, and Jesus walked around, touched them and healed them. Now, u see movie stars doing this: They run here and there, they slap their fans’ hands, but nobody gets healed. But wherever Jesus walked, whoever He touched, He healed. Picture this: A trail of people. Those in front of Jesus are lying down, but those behind Him whom He has touched are leaping with joy and following Him! That is how Jesus healed the sick.
So that night, when He said, “Take, eat; this is My body,” as He broke the bread and gave it 2 His disciples 2 eat, they knew what it meant. They were probably thinking, “We are going 2 ingest His health into our bodies! Hallelujah!”
That is what u must believe when u partake of the Holy Communion. It is not just a ritual or symbolic act. No, u must believe that He is the true bread from heaven who took your cancer, diabetes and heart disease, so that u can have His supernatural health! And when u eat of His broken body with this revelation, u will have life in abundance and the health of the Lord!
