This beating turned Him into a jagged ribbon. Both Peter and Isaiah said that by these stripes we were healed, and we are still healed. God ratified that Abrahamic covenant, to secure for us every blessing that He promised in it, which is salvation for the soul, healing for the body, prosperity for the pocketbook, and well being for our family. The body of Jesus Christ accomplishes our healing, for the Bible said that by his stripes we were, and still are, healed. The stripes they put on his back, having beaten Him into a bloody mass, heals us. The book of Isaiah says that when they finished with Jesus, the people that saw Him were astonished.
They said that his visage was marred more than any man. He didn't even resemble humanity. There was nothing left about Jesus Christ that resembled humanity. He was beaten beyond recognition. He didn't even look like a person. His bones were pulled out of joint when He hung on the cross. O my strength, haste thee to help me.
The Roman soldier blindfolded Him, jerked his beard out of his face, knocked Him around and said that if you are the Son of God, prophecy to us and tell us by looking through that blind fold which one of us was it that hit you. Jesus was beaten beyond recognition. He looked like hamburger.
The beating of his body produced the physical healing for the Abrahamic Seed Group. He shed his blood for our sins, but they striped his body for our healing. Jesus left us this that final night in the Upper Room. We must partake in the Blood Covenant of Friendship, that substitute body and blood of Christ.
That is our part. As we partake of it, we must understand that Jesus accomplished in his death the healing that God established between Himself and Abraham. The LORD's Supper enables us to take into our very being what Jesus accomplished for us; namely, He accomplished our healing by the beating He took on our behalf. They beat Jesus to shreds for our healing just before He died. They beat Him without mercy, hung Him up, and his blood flowed to the ground for our healing.
He became an unrecognizable mass for our healing. During and after that beating, God ratified the Abrahamic covenant by the blood of Jesus. Abraham's descendants had shed their own blood eight days after birth for centuries. When Jesus died, however, God poured his own blood out to ratify the Abrahamic covenant. Jesus' death ratified it, but his body was beaten to shreds to produce our physical healing contained in that covenant. Furthermore, that same beating and death broke the grip of Moses' Law and destroyed it because Jesus took it to the cross with Him and abolished it.
Jesus took it with Him to the cross and nailed it there; it disappeared from the face of this earth. The blood produces the continuous cleansing of our sins, and the broken body produces our physical healing. No wonder the Bible says that by his stripes we are and were healed. We were healed and still are, by the stripes on his body. Can we get even more explicit? Look again at 1 Corinthians What is this "unworthily" business mentioned in verse 29?
- Healing and the Lord's Supper;
- Healing In The Lord’s Supper (Holy Communion).
- Stochastic Modelling in Process Technology: 211 (Mathematics in Science and Engineering).
If that's the right interpretation, then nobody would ever take the LORD's Supper, because there is not a worthy person reading this page. I don't care how sanctimonious you feel like you are. You still aren't worthy. Therefore, it has to mean something else. In other words, it is not the person who is unworthy, but the manner in which it is taken.
What, therefore, is this manner in which you unworthily take it that brings damnation on yourself?

Before I answer that question, I must ask another question and answer it. What damnation will you bring on yourself? What is this damnation? Is it losing your salvation? What is it then? It is not getting your physical healing. You still maintain your cleansing of sin, but you do not get your physical healing. Now I am going to answer the other question, "What is this unworthy manner? To put it differently, not discerning the LORD's body is the unworthy manner that produces the damnation of not getting your physical healing.
So then, you must be sure that you don't take the LORD's Supper unworthily and bring upon yourself the damnation of not being healed. Paul says that these people were not discriminating between the LORD's body and his blood. You see, we fail to take into consideration what his body was striped up for. We know why his blood was shed. Many people go to church today to be sure that they have enough fire insurance to stay out of hell. But there is so much more than that. We know about the blood. We know the blood is responsible for our salvation.
We know the blood cleanses us from our sins and keeps on cleansing us. We go back week after week to hear this little baby story over and over again. Of course, this is not just a baby story. It is the most important story ever told. If, however, this is all you have heard for ten, fifteen or twenty years, you can't be much more than a babe in Christ. You can't have matured much. You must develop your faith enough to know what the Bible says so you can act on it.
Then you will quit worrying about, "Am I saved or not. Not only does the blood of his Son Jesus Christ cleanse me from all sin, it cleanses me and keeps on cleansing me from all sin. Now when you master this, you will quit worrying about whether you are saved or not, and you will advance to the next level of maturity where you can make something of yourself for God. As long as you stay on that infant formula, you will live in fear.
There is no power of God in fear. God has not given us the spirit of fear, but the spirit of power. You must get over your fear or there will never be any power in your life.
The Power Of The Holy Communion
Everything you encounter will blow you off the wall because you don't operate in faith. You must get past this thing of "whether I am saved or not. So the damnation that you bring upon yourself by taking the substitute feast unworthily is this: You didn't make a distinction between the blood of Christ and the body of Christ. You don't give one thought to the great Bible fact that the stripes on His precious body is the basis for your physical healing. Meanwhile, you are sick. You failed to make a distinction between the body of Jesus that was beaten to a pulp, cut to ribbons, and striped to bits for your healing, and His blood which was shed for your salvation and the cleansing of your sins.
We must look closely at three words here. It's the same word that is translated infirmity in many places. It's one Greek word which combines the Greek negative, A , with the Greek word for strength. This word, then, simply means weak or without strength. Are you physically weak and without strength?
Is it because you don't know what His body accomplished. You know what His blood accomplished, but you don't know what His body accomplished. This lack of knowledge about His body, and your subsequent failure to act upon this knowledge, affects you physically because His stripes heals us.
When we don't know what His broken, beaten body accomplished, we can't act on it. When we can't or don't act on it, we get weak physically. Look at the word sickly.
In every case, it means physical sickness. You must really stretch your imagination to make this word mean spiritually sick. That includes sickness and disease Isaiah You can receive it anytime and anywhere. The Communion table is the healing table, the deliverance table and the confession table. Every time we take Communion, it drives our roots even deeper into our faith in what the covenant of God means to us, and what the body and blood of Jesus has paid for us. We use our faith to take Communion, and we do so with determined purpose. I judge it now as being from Satan, and I reject it.
I refuse to receive it any longer. I partake of those promises now! I am the head and not the tail. I am above and not beneath. The body and blood of Jesus covers every area of your existence. Place yourself before God and receive Communion as the children of Israel did—ready to receive deliverance in your body!
Take the time to put yourself before God over the Communion table. It will be time well-spent.
