Understanding The Lord's Supper
is a wonderful short devotional by Pastor Joseph Prince that explains
mysteries of the Lord's Supper and what it does for us.
I love partaking of the Lord's Supper in my daily prayers. I don't do it every single day but there's nothing wrong with that. In fact, Pastor Prince suggests if you're going through a terrible need, a really bad illness or whatever is really worrying you, go ahead and do it every day, and some people even do it several times a day! It is not blaspheme or evil to do this! Jesus didn't tell us how often to do it, but He said AS often as you do it, you ARE remembering me and what I did for you until I come back.
Here in this devotional, Pastor Prince explains more of what it means and what it does for us. God bless you!
Proclaiming the Lord's Death by Pastor Prince
1 Corinthians 11:26
26For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes.
Every time something bad happened to the children of Israel, by offering a lamb sacrifice, they were proclaiming the Lord’s death, and the battle would turn in their favor.
Today, when we are faced with an enemy, how do we offer our “burnt offering”? How do we proclaim the Lord’s death and come out victorious? Do we ask Jesus to come down to where we are at and die on the cross all over again?
Of course not. Jesus died once for all our sins — past, present and future. (Hebrews 10:12) His work is perfectly perfect and completely complete, so He doesn’t have to die for us again. Today, we proclaim His death simply by partaking of the Lord’s Supper.
Every time you partake of the bread and wine, you declare to the principalities and powers of darkness that the Lord’s death avails for you. Every time you partake, you are saying that because Jesus has been judged and punished in your place, you cannot be judged and punished. Because Jesus died young in your place, you will live long. And because He conquered death and stripped the devil of his powers, you will not be defeated. The victory is already yours!
That is why the psalmist David said, “You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies…” (Psalm 23:5) The Lord’s table is prepared for you in the presence of your enemies because when you partake of the bread and wine, you will see your enemies tremble and scatter! Why? Because when you proclaim the Lord’s death through the Holy Communion, you are reminding the devil and his cohorts of their humiliating defeat at Calvary’s cross! (Colossians 2:15)
God bless you!
To God be the praise and glory! In Jesus’ name I send out this teaching and ask that the Word bless and heal all who read or hear it.
God bless you all.
