By Partaking of the Lord’s Supper
Speak to all the congregation of Israel, saying: ‘On the tenth of this month every man shall take for
himself a lamb, according to the house of his father, a lamb for a household. And if the household is
too small for the lamb, let him and his neighbor next to his house take it according to the number of
the persons; according to each man’s need you shall make your count for the lamb. Your lamb shall
be without blemish, a male of the first year. You may take it from the sheep or from the goats. Now
you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month. Then the whole assembly of the
congregation of Israel shall kill it at twilight. And they shall take some of the blood and put it on the
two doorposts and on the lintel of the houses where they eat it. Then they shall eat the flesh on that
night; roasted in fire, with unleavened bread and with bitter herbs they shall eat it. Do not eat it raw,
nor boiled at all with water, but roasted in fire—its head with its legs and its entrails. You shall let
none of it remain until morning, and what remains of it until morning you shall burn with fire. And thus
you shall eat it: with a belt on your waist, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand. So
you shall eat it in haste. It is the LORD’s Passover.
1 Corinthians 11:23-32
For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered 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.”
In the same manner He also took the 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.”
For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes.
Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty
of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and
drink of the cup. For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself,
not discerning the Lord’s body. For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep.
For if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged. But when we are judged, we are chastened
by the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world.
Basic, fundamental way to receive healing, though long overlooked by the Church.
When you receive the body and blood of the Lord Jesus, you should be standing on the New
Testament, acting on The Word of God.
