UNDERSTANDING THE WONDERS IN THE HOLY COMMUNION - John 6:48 - 58



INTRODUCTION: John 6:48-57

 48 I am that bread of life.
 49 Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.
 50 This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.
 51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
 52 The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat?
 53 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.
 54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
 55 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
 56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.
 57 As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.
 58 This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.

What is in the Blood?

·        Through the blood we share the same blood genotype with Christ; that is immune to sicknesses and diseases – Lev. 17:11/ Matt. 26:53

·        The communion table provides a spiritual kind of blood transfusion

·        It is stainless blood of Christ (White)

·        It is like the white blood corpuscles which are the soldiers of the body that fights against every attack on our health.

·        The blood of Christ purges our conscience – Heb. 9:4/ 1Thess. 5:23
