My thoughts about the daily miracle we encounter each morning is that the blessing Jesus offers when we present our bread and wine to Him brings an elemental change to the bread to become His flesh and the wine to become His blood. In other words there is within the bread and wine an infusion from heaven. The bread allows us to feed on the DNA of Jesus and the wine allows us to experience a transfusion from heaven by the power of the blood of Jesus.
In a new format called "Hope and Grace in the Morning" on the Trinity Broadcasting Network, Joel and Victoria Osteen are followed by Joseph Prince. They share, back-to-back, two half hour broadcasts Monday through Friday. Yesterday really got my attention. Camille and i watch TBN and EWTN looking to see any hint of CommunionFire evolution.
Yesterday morning, Joel Osteen spoke about the DNA and bloodline of Jesus and shared the story of an eagle that was raised by chickens.
The eagle thought, 'I must be a chicken'. Then the DNA of the eagle kicked in and the bloodline triggered an impulse to take to the sky. The chickens said, "That's not possible because you're a chicken." The eagle let the wind fill its outstretched wings and lifted the eagle to the skies. The eagle soared and the chickens were amazed!
Three years ago, when Camille and I started having Communion together each morning I shared that I thought the bread of life may be feeding us with the DNA of Jesus and the wine was giving us a transfusion with the blood of Jesus.
Her initial reaction to that was that no one would really understand, so, we put that dialog on the back burner until today. I heard that same discussion again when we both heard Joel Osteen speak about the DNA of Jesus and being a part of the bloodline of the true vine! He was speaking about both as a 'concept of faith' not something passed on physically through Communion and the miracle of CommunionFire.
Then, after 3 years of watching Joseph Prince, because of our dedication to the Grace Revolution, his program recently changed to follow Joel's program as a tandem of Hope and Grace on the same morning that Joel spoke of the "DNA & Bloodline of Jesus", for the first time that we can remember, it was Tuesday morning and Joseph did his "Communion/healing" message.
Joel did the DNA/Bloodline message and Joseph did his healing through Communion message.
Can't make this stuff up!
Typically Joseph always shares the Communion/healing message every Friday. This has been his format for at least the past year, Today he broke the mold and shared on Tuesday!
Why do I mention this? Camille and I are witnessing the sovereign acts of the Holy Spirit to understand the details of the power of Communion and CommunionFire as central to feeding our faith based on our relationship with Jesus.
Communion is about one primary, fundamental, basic foundation stone! It is about the readiness and excitement Jesus has to spend a few moments with any of His children. It is about time with Him so that He can share His life, and love with us while we are in His presence. It is a time He shares His virtues, promises, comfort, joy, peace and blessings.; in short, His glory!
That few moments I spend in His presence, by virtue of our partaking of the bread of His flesh, the eyes of our spirit are opened to see and recognize Him. His glorified flesh is real food in the form of bread. Then the ears of our spirit are opened to hear and recognize His voice by receiving the wine of His blood. Consumption of His life and goodness brings about another step in our transformation.
In His glory we are transformed from glory to glory, The way into his presence where we encounter His glory, His holy and eternal expression, is by joining Him at the Table He prepares for each one of us, Once, twice, each year, month, week, or day-to-day. Jesus says, 'As often as you have Communion with Him.'
I don't know about you but I can't not go without Communion each and every day! I am that hard headed, arrogant, fearful, angry and distracted! Without His life working in me its like I have no life at all!
You cannot separate the Body & Blood. Together they make up the Holy Son of God and Son of man. No one can duplicate this dual nature. God by the Spirit is also the Son and Father. Holy Mother Mary by divine appointment and eternal calling is the natural mother of Jesus. Joseph is His adopting, natural father by virtue of his marriage to Mother Mary. God became man. Mother became the eternal Queen. Dad became a Saint!
Jesus is still with us now in 'flesh & blood'! Through the miracle of the new covenant meal of Communion we are able to dine at His Table and enjoy a taste of eternal life. It is enough to feed us forever.
John 6 is where Jesus described the reality of this 'taken for granted miracle' and in some cases is just ignored, for one reason or another.
For those who believe, have faith and partake, every time you have Communion, you can experience the miracle is CommunionFire! All things are possible to those who believe.
So, if you believe and I do, What does the DNA of Jesus do when we begin to digest Him? And, what takes place when the blood transfusion floods our life?
Got Communion? Jesus is waiting to share more and more of his life and love with you. Eternity begins... Now!
