Communion
By Rev. Dr. Jimmy Nishimoto

 

Communion is a sacred ritual for all Christians. When an authorized pastor gives a blessing to the elements, the elements will be the representation of the body and the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. We cannot take it lightly. We must take it very seriously. 1 Corinthian 11: 27 - 30 so if anyone eats this bread or drinks this cup of the lord unworthily, that person is guilty of sinning against the body and the blood of the lord. That is why you should examine yourself before eating the bread and drinking the cup. If you eat the bread or drink the cup unworthily, not honoring the body of Christ, you are eating and drinking god's judgment upon yourself. That is why many of you are weak and sick and some have even died. For example, sometimes a husband and wife may have harsh words spoken last night or in the morning with bitterness or angry in their hearts. It is better to pray on Psalm 51: 1-19, asking god for forgiveness from the heart rather than from the corner of our mouth. As a pastor, I don’t want to be accountable for the couple, if anything tragic should happen to them. 1 Corinthian 11: 23 - 26 for this is what the lord himself said, and I pass it on to you as I received it.

On the night when he was betrayed, the lord Jesus took a loaf of bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said," this is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me." in the same manner, he took the cup of wine after supper, saying, " This cup is the new covenant between god and you, sealed by shedding of my blood. Do this in remembrance of me as often as you drink it. For every time you eat this bread and drink this cup, you are announcing the lord's death until he comes again, Amen. Brothers and sisters in Christ, take the communion as often as you can. If you have any sickness within yourself, ask god to bless the elements and when you partake the communion ask god to heal you from crown of your head to the sole of your feet, in and out of your body, in Jesus mighty name, Amen.
