Food used in sacrifices are spiritual meals; they are not ordinary. When a ceremony is done in the name of an idol and a meal is involved, that meal hooks men in covenant to that spirit. You can’t partake of the ceremony if you don’t eat and once you eat it, you are in. If your faith can’t stand eating ceremonial meals, don’t partake. The Bible says, “there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.” If you have faith, you can say to them, “I will eat it and nothing will happen to me because I have eaten something greater than this.” If your faith cannot stand it, Paul said don’t partake.
When you come to take the communion, you partake with the spirit that rested on Jesus. It is the spirit of life and spirit of health. Let me give you an example, Romans 8:11 says, “But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.”
When Jesus died and His spirit was in hell, on the 3rd day, the Holy Ghost went there, quickened Him and raised Him from the dead. The Holy Spirit broke the power of death, and death could not hold Jesus. Sickness- which is death in seed form cannot hold you. That same spirit works when you take the bread and the wine. If death in full manifestation could not stop the Spirit of God raising Jesus, diseases cannot stop the Spirit of Jesus from healing your body.
