He also brought them out with silver and gold, and there was none feeble among His tribes. Psalm 105:37
As the Israelites left Egypt, not one person young or old of the two to three million people were sick. Think about this for a minute. The natural odds for such a large population like that, especially after being slaves for 430 years, would be that many were sick with some very serious illnesses. The Bible, however, declares something quite the opposite. It states, “He brought them out…. and there was none feeble among His tribes”.
How did this happen? This occurred because the Israelites applied God’s instructions, God’s antidote for sickness and disease. The night before they left Egypt, they not only put the blood of the Lamb on their doorposts, which gave them complete immunity from the death angel, but they ate the Passover Lamb, which provided healing from all sicknesses and diseases.
Today, through “Communion” you can partake of “Christ, our Passover Lamb” (1 Corinthians 5:7) through two faith actions, which are similar in some respects to the two faith actions the Israelites took.
The body of the Lamb
1 Corinthians 11:24 Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.
The blood of the Lamb
1 Corinthians 11:25 This is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.
The blood of the Lamb has made provision for the forgiveness of your sins. And, the body of the Lamb has made provision for the healing of your sicknesses and diseases.
But, how do you know whether you are worthy to actually receive forgiveness from all your sins or the healing from all your diseases? (Psalm 103:3) You know by evaluating the worthiness of Jesus Christ, the Passover Lamb, Who had no blemish or spot. (1 Peter 1:19) It is through Jesus Christ’s worthiness that you are now privileged as a Believer to declare your redemption from both sin and sickness. (Ps. 107:2; Matthew 8:17)
You partake of Communion in a worthy manner when you “attribute the full worth of Christ’s redeeming work to this action – to partake with faith in HIs full forgiveness, full acceptance, and full power to restore, strengthen, and heal.” (Footnote for 1 Corinthians 11:27, “Spirit Filled Life Bible,” Executive Editor Jack Hayford.
