The Wonder Working

Power of Communion

 

Read all first, then go to the place to take communion in red.

 

 

Aligning ourselves with who He says we are…in re-member-rance of Him.

 

Blow the Shofar – we are releasing an act of our will to believe by faith (the activating force of what we believe), just as the Israelites were instructed to blow the Shofar as they were releasing the Presence of God into their situations, we are believing this in an act of obedience in reverence to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, to call Heaven to earth.

 

Two come into union = Comm - Union

 

When we take Communion, in remembrance of what Jesus did and finished on the cross for us, we are stewarding the greatest testimony in history. We are reminding ourselves of His sacrifice and the personal, unprecedented ways this New Covenant affects every area of our lives every day, as we remember TODAY.

 

When we partake of Communion as a tool for intercession, we are not only choosing to align ourselves with the risen Christ seated in Heavenly places, but we are aligning and proclaiming the reality of Heaven over every area of our lives and families, and those on our Ministry teams, and even interceding for those who come against us or say they are our enemies…we have no enemies in Christ, but the devil!

 

“Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on the earth. For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God”. Colossians 3:2–3.

 

We apply this comm-union to any and every situation that is weighing our hearts right now as a prophetic act to You today, Lord Jesus. We are dissolving ourselves into this comm-union, like sugar into water, Your water of the washing of water by Your Word, Lord. Eph. 5:26 “That He might sanctify and cleanse her (all of us here today, the body of Christ) with the washing of water by the word.”

 

If we believe what the Bible says, that “by his stripes we are healed” Isaiah 53:5, then there has to be something important in the active partaking in His body during communion. His body suffered so that our bodies wouldn’t have to. When we take the bread, we are testifying that He is our healer, He is our Redeemer, that we don’t have to walk in sickness or infirmities, or even think in a sickness victim mentality any longer. What Jesus did on the cross changed everything.

 

We allow the reality of this New Covenant to wash over us, changing any old mindsets that needs to be renewed daily (Rom 12:1-2) and asking forgiveness for those things that we know we’ve done or those we know we have wronged, and even those things that we don’t even know of… Lord, help us examine ourselves through Your heart and eyes of mercy and love.

 

Phil 4:7 “And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”

 

And after Jesus’s blood was spilled for the whole world for the better New Covenant to become enforced in earth, we became not only heirs of Abraham, but also joint-heirs with Christ Jesus through the final sacrificial blood of the Lamb. We are seated with Him in the heavenlies now. A position of authority. 1 Cor 3:21-23 …:23 “And you are of Christ, and Christ is of God.”

 

 

Luke 22:41–44  “He knelt down and prayed, saying, “Father, if it is your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours be done.” Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him. And being in agony, he prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling to the ground.”

 

We examine our hearts today because it’s a time of re-union, both with the spirit of God uniting with our hearts and with our fellow believers as One. Today, we get to stand with others here and confess that He took a burden from our shoulders we could never carry, the burden of sin on the Cross. This is an opportunity that we get to celebrate with our brothers and sisters in Christ in a horizontal realigning with and as the body of Christ.

 

Hold the articles of Communion up to the Lord and say:

“Lord Jesus, thank you for this privilege to partake of Your body and Your blood through this articles of Communion, I now hold them up to You and ask that You sanctify and consecrate and make these Holy articles of Communion before You, and by faith I do believe that I do receive them as Holy before You now and as I partake with You and all You did on the cross for me, I am coming into alignment with You and all You have for me.”

 

1 Cor. 11:23-24 Communion Scripture

“: 23 for a received from the Lord that which I also deliver to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which he was betrayed took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said ‘take, eat; this is my body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.’”

 

Suggested Prayer:

 

Lord Jesus, we thank you that you died for us, and your body was broken for us and your blood was shed for us and in this beautiful New Covenant blood-shed that you have loved us with, we get to examine the motives of our heart and intercede for one another. We intercede for others’ forgiveness and cleansing of hearts from the detrimental effects of bitterness and unforgiveness from so much brokenness in the world. We believe we and those we are interceding for receive this amazing life through Your broken body and precious atoning redemptive blood, poured out on the Mercy Seat for us, and we now receive life and life more abundantly in You. (John 10:10)

 

“… then, He took the cup after they had eaten, saying, this cup which is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.” Luke 22:20

 

We now hear-by, lay hold of and are in complete alignment with all of the benefits of Jesus Christ redemption for our lives today, for Your amazing grace and mercy, for Your unconditional forgiveness and love, for Your strength, for divine health and wholeness, and for His resurrection power living in and through us for all sufficiency and abilities to serve You greater - blessed TO BE a blessings to others always, as we partake of all this now for each of us and all our families, (names here)___________________________________________________________________

We do all this in remembrance of You Lord Jesus, and by faith, we do believe we each receive it all now through Your precious body and blood shed for us, in Jesus Name.

 

Gal 2:20  “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

 

We have “the mind of Christ,” and God is inviting us to use it. 1 Corinthians 2:16. Whenever you revisit a story of God’s faithfulness or His divine disruption in your life, you’re revisiting a place of divine encounter with Him. Remembering what He’s done in your life never loses power and God sets the legal precedence of what He wants to continue….remembering Him.

2nd Peter 1-4 “To those who have obtained like precious faith with us by the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ: Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which has been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

John 17:21 “That they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.”

 

1st Peter 2:9 “You are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.”

 

1 John 4:4  “You are of God, little children, and I’ve overcome them, because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.”

 

When we partake of Communion as a tool for intercession, we are not only choosing to align ourselves with the risen Christ seated in Heavenly places, but we are aligning and proclaiming the reality of Heaven to earth over every area of our lives and families’ situations and lives.

 

John 1:14  “The word became flesh and made His dwelling among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”

 

1st Peter 1:23 “For you have been born again, not a perishable seed, but imperishable, through the living an enduring Word of God.”

 

Revelation 19:16 “On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: KING of kings and LORD of lords.”

 

Matthew 28:6 – “He is not here, for He has risen, as He said. Come, see the place where He lay.

 

 

 

He is Risen and Lives in Us!

 

Never has there been better news – the King is Risen, and that Resurrection, significant news as it is on its own, means our salvation and that we are risen with Him, seated in heavenly places in Christ.

 

Yet, read the verse above. Upon providing this good news, the angel’s immediate follow up was “come and see” – knowing that the news was so unprecedented that immediate proof would be needed. They saw, and the reality of the Resurrection is something made abundantly clear in Scripture as a factual, historical event.

 

As we celebrate the great Resurrection Day, let us never fall into the trap of religiosity or detachment. Let us always remember the raw magnitude of something that happened – Jesus rose from the dead, walked among men after His death, and conquered death on our behalf.

 

May you know Him and the power of His Resurrection to experience this day in a whole new and powerful way forevermore! He in you and you in Him!
