Taking Communion in an Unworthy Manner

Can taking communion in an unworthy manner cause death?




You know the answer, but you word it to let other people take a moment to ponder it. Make it clear to the people that My Word comes with spiritual backing, and it doesn’t mean that I do not love them when I back up My Word and bring what is written forward into the earth.


Here is what is moving in these churches. They say,


“Yahweh loves me, and He will not bring me any sickness even though I take communion in an unworthy state. He is only a loving God and would never judge me or bring a sickness.”


Take a look at the curses spoken in Genesis when Yahweh cursed the human race with natural death. I told him if he ate of that tree, he would surely die (Genesis 2:16-17). He gave the woman My command, and her being of his flesh made her stand in the same level of punishment: natural death.


I cursed the whole human race. Does the curse of death mean I do not love the human race? No, of course not, for King Jesus came to earth to save any who would drink Him and eat Him in the spiritual way of the rebirth (John 3:16, John 6:48-58).


Surely, Yahweh loves those who walk in His Kingdom purpose, yet every believer under the Kingdom way can take in the spiritual law of sickness or even death when they take communion in an unworthy manner.


Paul is not without human traits, traditions, and the old way still ingrained within (Acts 23:6). None of the Early Church leaders were perfect. They were willing to come under Kingdom order and live in a law of the power of Christ and Him crucified to become a new creation (Romans 8). Works will not save anyone. But take a look at the work of taking communion. How many church leaders will say to their people, “Take a moment to examine yourself; come before God Yahweh with clean hands and a pure heart”?


Churches must consider the important point: I Yahweh have no favorites. I will record all words spoken. I will look for each person’s name to see if it’s in the Book of Life (Revelation 20:11-15). I show mercy, yet there is a judgment coming. Get the Word, read it, and start taking what I say as the True Word. No one will take your place in everlasting separation from My Kingdom even if you blame them for what sin you did.


See it: Adam sinned, but he blamed Eve (Genesis 3:12). When I had a conversation with Eve, she blamed the serpent (Genesis 3:13). But did I say, “Okay, well, it wasn’t really your fault. You were only doing what you thought would be better,” or did I say something similar to “Your disobedient ways will cause the curse to takeover. Death is given”? I gave them what I promised, even in disobedient actions. I gave them what the spiritual law required (Genesis 2:16-17). And this is the same with taking communion: I will judge them. But will My people continually blame Satan for disobeying My will?


(23) For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when He was betrayed took bread, (24) 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.” (25) In the same way also He took the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.” (26) For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes. (27) Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty concerning the body and blood of the Lord. (28) Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. (29) For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment on himself. (30) That is why many of you are weak and ill, and some have died. (31) But if we judged ourselves truly, we would not be judged. (32) But when we are judged by the Lord, we are disciplined so that we may not be condemned along with the world. —1 Corinthians 11:23-32 ESV


(1) There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. (2) For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. (3) For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, (4) in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. (5) For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. (6) For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. (7) For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God’s law; indeed, it cannot. (8) Those who are in the flesh cannot please God. (9) You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to Him. (10) But if Christ is in you, although the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness. (11) If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. —Romans 8:1-11 ESV


An Ending Note from Seersgate:


Two streams of death occurred in the Garden of Eden when Adam and Eve sinned when they went against a command from God Yahweh. When they ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, they became aware of how they were without a natural covering: clothing. When they ate of that tree, among other curses, Yahweh cursed them with natural death, but it would take years for the natural death to take over, where they would return to dust. 


Because of their disobedience, Adam and Eve were also separated from Yahweh in the spiritual plan. Sin entered the human race when they ate from that tree. Their act of disobedience brought spiritual death. And that’s why King Jesus came, to save us from our sins as our Perfect Sacrifice. 


Taking communion in an unworthy manner causes a spiritual law to overtake and bring sickness or even natural death in the believer, no matter how much they love Yahweh. Yahweh wants us to stop blaming Satan when we blatantly sin against His command to examine ourselves before taking communion. And so, Yahweh will judge us, which causes illness or natural death to lead within that moment when a person takes communion without examining themselves beforehand.


To examine yourself is to see if there is any sin in your heart, in your life that is hindering you from having fellowship with clean hands and a pure heart before Yahweh. 


Are you living in sinful actions, expecting Yahweh to ignore what you are doing? Is there anger or bitterness? Are there people you will not forgive? Seek Yahweh and ask Him to “create in me a clean heart and renew the right spirit in me.” Here is a way we can pray to Yahweh when we examine ourselves:


Yahweh, we need You. Your way of clean hands and a pure heart is my longing. Please look within me, search my heart, and tell me if there is a person I haven’t forgiven. Please bring them to my attention. Please forgive me for ________ (hatred, anger, bitterness, sinful living, not forgiving _________, for causing ill actions towards others). Please forgive me for gossip, strife, malice, disobeying Your commands, and hatred towards Your Word. Please set me in a right-standing by the blood of King Jesus. I am a child of God based on salvation in King Jesus. Let there be a turning away from the former living. Please let us come unto Yahweh with a reverent heart. Yahweh is God. Amen. Amen.


For those who do not have a relationship with King Jesus, Yahweh wants us to place this prayer that we share through our Good News translations. Here is a prayer of salvation:


Dear Jesus, I ask You to forgive me of all of my sins. I ask You to save me. I have turned my back on You, but now I come to You. Please cleanse me from all unrighteousness. Please heal me. Please heal me in every area of my life. Most importantly, please come to live within me. I want to know You. I want to have a relationship with You. I am Yours. I am Yours forever, my God, my King, and I choose to serve You for the rest of my days. Thank You, Lord, for dying for me and for saving me. I receive all that You have for me. I look forward to being with You forever. Amen. 


(21) But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. (22) This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, (23) for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, (24) and all are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. (25) God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of His blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance He had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished— (26) He did it to demonstrate His righteousness at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus. —Romans 3:21-26 NIV


(12) Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, so death spread to all people [no one being able to stop it or escape its power], because they all sinned. (13) Sin was [committed] in the world before the Law [was given], but sin is not charged [against anyone] when there is no law [against it]. (14) Yet death ruled [over mankind] from Adam to Moses [the Lawgiver], even over those who had not sinned as Adam did. Adam is a type of Him (Christ) who was to come [but in reverse—Adam brought destruction, Christ brought salvation].


(15) But the free gift [of God] is not like the trespass [because the gift of grace overwhelms the fall of man]. For if many died by one man’s trespass [Adam’s sin], much more [abundantly] did God’s grace and the gift [that comes] by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, overflow to [benefit] the many. (16) Nor is the gift [of grace] like that which came through the one who sinned. For on the one hand the judgment [following the sin] resulted from one trespass and brought condemnation, but on the other hand the free gift resulted from many trespasses and brought justification [the release from sin’s penalty for those who believe]. (17) For if by the trespass of the one (Adam), death reigned through the one (Adam), much more surely will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in [eternal] life through the One, Jesus Christ.


(18) So then as through one trespass [Adam’s sin] there resulted condemnation for all men, even so through one act of righteousness there resulted justification of life to all men. (19) For just as through one man’s disobedience [his failure to hear, his carelessness] the many were made sinners, so through the obedience of the one Man the many will be made righteous and acceptable to God and brought into right standing with Him. (20) But the Law came to increase and expand [the awareness of] the trespass [by defining and unmasking sin]. But where sin increased, [God’s remarkable, gracious gift of] grace [His unmerited favor] has surpassed it and increased all the more, (21) so that, as sin reigned in death, so also grace would reign through righteousness which brings eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. —Romans 5:12-21 AMP
