“It is the Passover sacrifice of the Lord,
who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt
when He struck the Egyptians and delivered our households.”
Torah: Exodus 12:27
When He (Yeshua) had given thanks, He broke it [the matzo] and said,
“Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you;
do this in remembrance of Me.”
1 Corinthians 11:24
COMMUNION LOOKS BACKWARD
“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.” ‒ 1 Corinthians 11:25
During this last Passover supper with his talmidim (disciples) the Lord was instructing them to carry out this observance as a reminder that He was the real Passover Lamb. Looking back not only at the first Passover in Egypt, but more importantly, that He was the Passover who the next day would carry the sins of the world on the cross-stake. The New Covenant would be established and replace the Old when His blood would be shed.
THE NEW COVENANT
“Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah—not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them, says the Lord. But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.”

COMMUNION LOOKS FORWARD
“For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He returns.” ‒ 1 Corinthians 11:26
The Lord told them He would NOT take part in this supper with them again until He returns to establish His Kingdom on earth.
“But I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father’s kingdom.” ‒ Matthew 26:29
COMMUNION LOOKS INWARD
“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.” ‒ 1 Corinthians 11:27-28
MIRACLES ARE AVAILABLE IN THE HOLY COMMUNION
WHEN THE PRESENCE OF CHRIST IS DISCERNED
“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 [are dead].” ‒ 1 Corinthians 11:29-30
This passage is telling YOU that many people could have received their healing … but as a result of NOT discerning the Lord's body (not meditating on and thinking seriously about) Messiah's broken, beaten body AND His shed blood on the cross-stake … they did NOT appropriate healing. They continued in sickness or disease (even mental) … and some even died due to NOT discerning the Lord's body when they could have been healed! They did NOT take advantage of healing during the Lord's Supper!
WE SHOULD EXPECT MIRACLES DURING THE LORD'S SUPPER
I was invited by a well-known radio DJ in the Youngstown, Ohio USA area to preach at an outdoor meeting at Austintown Fitch Football Stadium. We had a crowd nearly the size of the Billy Graham Associates' previous meeting with virtually NO advertising other than Johnny's promos on his radio show. Johnny had recently been saved and enjoyed sharing his testimony on the radio. Johnny Kay was a super representative for Christ in his personal life as well as his public life as a DJ on radio.
Before the meeting started I was on the inside of the track praying. I noticed two men in wheelchairs on the other side of the track near the stands. I thought to myself, "I wonder what decision those men will make tonight?" When I gave the invitation, one of the men in wheelchairs, named Jim, rolled forward across the gravel track to the inside of the football field (or, was rolled forward) and made a decision to follow Christ. [Plus a long haired hippy counselor led seven (7) Roman Catholic Nuns to Christ.]
After the outdoor meeting at the Austintown Fitch Football Stadium I was conducting a seminar for two days for Dr. Len Evans (a Presbyterian pastor) at Pleasant Valley Evangelical Church in Niles, Ohio USA. At the end of the first day I asked for volunteers to fast with me for the next day's meeting as I was going to teach on healing. Several people fasted and in the last two hours of that next day I taught on healing.
The man named Jim who had come forward in his wheelchair was attending the seminar I was teaching. Jim had been in the wheelchair nine (9) years due to TWO conditions: 1. He had been in an auto accident where a semi-trailer truck ran into him and broke his spine in several places; and, 2. He had Multiple Sclerosis. During the last day of the seminar Jim walked out of his wheelchair (for the first time in 9 years) during Holy Communion.
During that seminar a well known band named “The Glass Harp” played for me with their leader, Phil Keaggy. They had just released an album titled “Synergy” (which was a tag for drugs); however, after they saw Jim walk out of his wheel chair they never played for the world again. Phil went on to be used in large music ministry festivals.
Two years later, Jim gave his testimony in a large Presbyterian church somewhere in the area and several hundred people fell out of the seats under the power of the Holy Spirit. Thanks to the provision―the opportunity―to receive HEALING and MIRACLES as we take part in the Lord's Supper … as we discern His body ,,, many people have received God's blessings. You can, too!
