Sid: This is your week to experience healing. I have on the telephone Dr. John Miller he’s a Chiropractor from Tampa, Florida he has spent the last 20 years studying communion. And he’s convinced and I’m convinced that because we haven’t had proper teaching on communion many are sick and even dead among us as scripture has to say. Now John on yesterday’s broadcast we were talking about a strange symbol in the Old Covenant people that were bitten by snakes that were dying would look at a bronze serpent on a pole and stare at that pole and everyone that looked at it was healed. Would you continue?
John: Yes it’s because when Jesus took our sins in Him He became polluted with our sin. The scriptures say in 2nd Corinthians that He actually became sin He knew no sin but He became sin. And I began to talk about how the two elements of communion, one had fermentations or sin in it and the other didn’t. The bread has no fermentation because it represents the body of Christ His body never partook of sin it never committed a sin. So the bread of communion is without fermentation which represents sin, but the wine we know was fermented because Paul said they were coming to table and drinking so much that they were getting drunk. Now why did God allow the wine to be fermented? It’s because Leviticus 11:17 says “For the life of the flesh is in the blood and I give it to you for an atonement for your soul.” So the life that’s in your body is in your blood. Now James 2:26 says “For as the body without the spirit is dead so faith without works is dead.” That tells us that the Spirit is what gives life to your body. When Ananias and Sapphira lied to Peter about how much they paid for their property God took their body. There was nothing wrong physically with them but they dropped dead because their spirit was gone. Now sin is an issue of the spirit, if the life of the flesh is in the blood we know that the life of the flesh is the spirit, so the spirit is in the blood. When Jesus took our sin in Him it spoiled His blood with our sin. Now we can proved this with typology also; on the day of atonement the lamb was brought to the priest and the family’s head laid his hands on the head of the lamb imputing his sins and his family’s sins into that lamb. Then the priest took the lamb, took the blood and took some of the blood and put it on the mercy seat. Well that was tainted blood, the blood in that lamb now was tainted with that Hebrew family’s sin. So we have the picture of Jesus taking our sin in Him and spoiling His blood because the Spirit is in the blood. The Spirit gives life that’s why God did all blood covenants all life matters with blood covenants. So when we take communion it’s representing the fact that Jesus took our sin. I personally use wine, I use the Manischewitz wine…
Sid: But if somebody doesn’t use wine it doesn’t diminish the value does it?
John: Not as long as they understand what they’re doing. I’ve used on occasions water and crackers when I didn’t have the elements of communion because this is only an element to put you in memory of what Jesus did for you both spiritually and physically. So anything that we can use as a contact point will bring about the desired effect. I like the wine because the sweetness of the wine reminds me of the sweetness of redemption, but the bitterness of the alcohol reminds me of the bitterness He went through for me when He took my sin at Calvary.
Sid: You know one of the amazing things is that not only are you telling me people are being healed that start really doing communion daily and understanding as you put it in remembrance of what the Messiah did for us really understanding it. People are taking communion for others, tell me quickly about that Pastor’s wife and the healing she had when her husband took communion for her.
John: In 1st Corinthians 11:33 it says “When you come together to eat tarry yea one for another.” So that means we can take communion for someone else. Remember Job offered sacrifices daily for his children. Now I have a friend that’s a wonderful evangelist that started taking communion every day when I taught it in his church and he had done it for years. He would take communion for his wife his wife didn’t take communion daily; she ended up with cancer of the breast and they operated and took the lumps out. She got the lumps again and they operated, she got the lumps again and they scheduled her for surgery and he told his wife “I take communion for you every day, but I’m going to have to have you start taking communion for yourself.” And by the time she went to surgery the lumps were gone so there’s a case that she needed to do it. God first point this out to me when I was going to a church to teach on communion and the pastor there had gone completely blind in one eye and almost blind in the other eye. He’s a man that travels with Morris Cerullo for 6 or 8 years and had a tremendous healing ministry himself. And on the way to that church God brought out that verse in scripture “When you come together to eat tarry you one for another.” And God spoke to me and said “Nicky has the gift of healing when he is in that church he keeps everybody healed with that gift now when you have communion tonight I want you to put him in the middle and have the elders get around him and place their right hand on his head; when they eat the bread of communion he will be healed.” And so we did that and there wasn’t an instant manifestation that very second but within 2 minutes there was. He began to pray for people and all of the sudden he screamed and he came up on the stage and he picked me up in a bear hug and he picked up a song book and he covered the eye that he could see a little bit out of. And he said “Point to any line I can read it.” His eyes were totally healed in that communion service and that’s the first time that I ever saw in scripture that said “Tarry yea one for another.” I have a list of ministers that I take communion for on a daily basis.
Sid: Now let me ask you a question because Passover is coming up and it says in Exodus the 12th chapter a lamb for a house what about taking communion as a point of contact for the salvation of our entire house since under the Old Covenant type it was a lamb for an entire house?
John: Communion should be taken to do any spiritual warfare and what you’ve talking about actually is spiritual warfare. Everybody that’s not born again is of their father the devil; they have to be born again to get put into the family of God. Now satan is the god of this world. See we sent Missionaries over to Africa and we send them clothing and food and they get so many people saved and they’re in their life hut but we know that there’s princes of Persian, Princes of Greece, Princes of Tarsus their demonic heads over all of the nations and if you’re not born again then you belong to that side of the family that spiritual family. And so getting someone saved really would be a matter of binding and losing, binding those spirits that control those people and losing those people in the name of Jesus to receive the gospel of Jesus Christ. And there’s no better time to do your spiritual warfare than after you take communion.
Sid: Tell me about the race car driver that lost his peripheral vision.
John: I had a friend who was a very famous guy he was voted race car driver of the decades, 2 decades in a row his name was Jan Oppermann. He crashed on the Sacramento mile in a Sprint car in California and lost the peripheral visions in his right eye. And in my living room at 2:00 in the morning I explained the communion message and I had a large loaf of bread and we took a big chunk of it because I like to take more bread than normally they give because I like to meditate on different parts of the body and different things that need healing. And as we took communion at 2:00 in the morning in my living room his eye was completely head. Now people will say “How can you do that not in a church and nothing having a preacher?” Certain denominations you have to be an ordained minister you can’t even be a licensed minister of that denomination to give out communion. And in 1 Peter 2:9 says “But we are a chosen generation a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people praises of Him who has called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Now anyone that has been called out of darkness into His light in others words if you’ve been saved the Bible says that “You’re a chosen generation, you have been made a royal priesthood.” Now being a royal priesthood by God is greater credentials than being an ordained minister by any denomination.
Sid: Whoop we’re out of time.
