The Bible didn’t say you examine yourself and refuse to eat. After examination, correct yourself and eat. You are supposed to eat the bread and drink of that cup. You can eat and drink justification to yourself if you do it right.
I want to share a testimony that will bless you today about a lady who had previously had many miscarriages; sometimes, the pregnancy was as long as 7 months old. She came to meet me one day and said there was an experience she had been having. She said a man would come to her in her dream and have sex with her. She hated it and had done everything to stop it but it didn’t go.
On a certain fellowship day, I was teaching on the passage on rightly discerning the Lord’s body, emphasizing that Jesus paid a price for you. The price that He paid to purchase you is His blood, His body broken for you, His blood shed for you. She sat down taking note and said that after hearing the teaching, “I decided not to come and see you for counsel again. I decided to go and put this thing to practice.”
Before she slept, she pleaded the blood of Jesus and claimed the covenant position that Jesus had paid the price for her; and then she slept. The same scenario repeated itself but for the first time, she found herself confronting the man that she could not say no to before. Usually, the man would just have sex with her and she would feel bad after waking up. She stood up and said to the man, “Do you know this is wrong? Do you know that Jesus paid the dowry for me with His blood?” She said the man fled out of the window in terror and never had that experience again. This is what can happen when you take the communion in a worthy manner.
