Kim Potter: "There Is Great Power in Communion"

Kim Potter
Jun 18, 2022

From the Desks of Steve Shultz and Julie A. Smith:

Steve ShultzWe can't say this enough...there is great power in the partaking of communion. In fact, we encourage you to take it daily and as often as you can.

No, it's not required, nor is it a legalistic does many things, such as drawing us closer to the Lord, His power, and is a holy moment with Him.

We've heard amazing stories of breakthrough, healing, protection, encounters and answered prayers happening from those who take communion on a regular basis.

Kim Potter writes an excellent word about this as she says:

Partaking of communion is one of the tools God has given us against sickness and disease; not only sickness, but any attack of the enemy. There is great power in communion. When we take communion, we align ourselves with the body and Blood of Jesus. In communion, we remember the fullness of what Jesus did at the Cross. Then, we receive the fullness into every area of our lives.

Over the past couple weeks, I have heard several stories of people battling illnesses. It seems like attacks on the body are happening all around.

Partaking of communion is one of the tools God has given us against sickness and disease; not only sickness, but any attack of the enemy. There is great power in communion. When we take communion, we align ourselves with the body and Blood of Jesus. In communion, we remember the fullness of what Jesus did at the Cross. Then, we receive the fullness into every area of our lives.

If you don't take communion often in the privacy of your home, I ask you to read this today and pray about making communion a part of your daily life – or at least a part of your week.

Do This in Remembrance of Me

"...and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, 'This is My body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of Me.'" (1 Corinthians 11:24)

Most people are familiar with communion, but only partake of communion on special occasions. I want to show you the power in private communion.

The word communion means "partnership," "participation," "intercourse" and "fellowship." Just from these definitions, you can see that communion is a very intimate thing. It is a time when we become ONE with Jesus and what He did at the Cross.

It is also called "the cup of blessing" (1 Corinthians 10:16), and symbolizes the seal of the covenant. We understand how a seal works. It covers and protects what is inside. It lets nothing of the outside in. (Photo via Unsplash)

In Luke 22, we find that Jesus greatly desired to eat this meal with His disciples before He went to the Cross. Communion is all about the Cross and what Jesus accomplished there. For me, communion still holds great mysteries. However, I have seen the power of the communion meal in my own life over and over again.

Becoming One With Him

1 Corinthians 10:16 says, "Is not the cup of thanksgiving for which we give thanks a participation in the Blood of Christ? And is not the bread that we break a participation in the Body of Christ?"

What this scripture is saying is that when we drink of our communion cup (whether we use grape juice or wine), we are drinking, fellowshipping with, becoming one with and partnering with the Blood of Christ. When we eat the bread, we are becoming one with, fellowshipping with and partnering with the Body of Christ. When we do this, we become one with all He accomplished at the Cross. We become partners with prosperity, healing, wholeness, soundness of mind and every other thing Jesus took back at the Cross.

You become one with Him who bought back right-standing with God; who empowered you to enjoy the good life He has for you, the life He died to give you. That's what you partner with in communion. And you remember Him – the One who bought it all back for us. You honor Him; you honor Jesus. You honor His body and His Blood. As you do, all that was purchased at the Cross will once again be sealed for you. The seal is applied as you partake of communion.

Breaking the Hold of the Enemy

For me, personally, communion has often broken the hold of the enemy in my life when it seemed like nothing else was working, especially where healing is concerned. I want to share one such time with you.

Several years ago, I was bitten by a Brown Recluse spider. The very next day, my leg began to swell. Since I am not accustomed to seeing a doctor right away, I took it to God and asked what I should do about it. He told me to trust Him. So, I did. (Photo via Unsplash)

Over the next few days, my leg began to look like something that needed to be removed. My family was coming by daily to tell me that if I didn't do something, I would have to have my leg cut off. A nurse came by and told me that if I saw streaks going up my leg, it would mean the poison had entered my blood stream and there would be no saving my leg at that point.

After several days, the fever in my leg was almost unbearable. I had streaks up my leg from the poison in my blood and the pain was incredible. My leg was twice the size of my other leg – quite a sight to behold! I continued to confess God's Word and His faithfulness.

One night, when I thought I couldn't stand it anymore, I cried out to God and said, "You are going to have to do something here; my daughter is beginning to worry." He instructed me to take communion.

That night, I took communion. I received afresh all Jesus had purchased through His body for me. I remembered Him, and I sealed that covenant once again with His precious Blood. Then I went to bed, with my leg the same way it was before communion.

The next morning when I awoke, my leg was normal. You couldn't even tell I had ever been bitten, except for a small speck which I still have on my leg today. Through the finished work of the Cross, plus the daily confession of His Word, every symptom left and wholeness came back to my leg. Confessing the Word is powerful, and it will not return void. That being said, sometimes we have to seek God and see if there is anything else He would have us do. For me that day, it was to partake of communion.

Seal It With the Power of Communion

You know, all those people who had told me I was nuts, and that I would lose my leg, came to see me once again the following day. They stood in awe at the faithfulness of my God. God got all the glory.

Communion is powerful. Jesus desires that we partake of it often, and I agree.

The power of communion is unlimited. It brings you closer to Jesus. You become one with Him, you partner with Him, you fellowship with Him, and most of all, you remember what He did for you. You not only receive it, but seal it with the power of communion.

Take some time out this week for communion – you and Jesus in oneness. There's nothing else like it. And remember, it is not only for healing, but for everything Jesus accomplished at the Cross.
