“For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body.30For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep.”
1 Corinthians 11:29–30
Joseph Prince Sermons
Have you ever wondered why some Christians are weak and sick, and die young? I thank God that the Holy Spirit gives us the reason as well as the solution. In 1 Corinthians 11:29–30, He tells us clearly that the one reason some Christians are weak and sick, and die prematurely, is that they don’t discern the Lord’s body when they partake of the Holy Communion.
Many believers don’t understand that the pierced, striped and slightly burnt bread, which represents the Lord’s body, is for their health and healing. And when they partake without discerning this truth, they partake in an unworthy manner. The reverse is true: If they discern accurately the Lord’s body, then they will be strong and healthy, and live long.
Joseph Prince Sermons- Knowing by Heart
Unfortunately, the church down through the years has misconstrued this teaching and taught that if you have sin in your life, you are unworthy and cannot partake of the Holy Communion, lest you become weak and sick, and even die! We have turned a blessing into a curse. Because of this, many Christians are afraid to come to the Lord’s table and are therefore robbed of the health-giving power of the Holy Communion.

5.0 out of 5 stars “The way through Christ to effortless success, wholeness, and victorious living”, as taught by Joseph Prince, February 20, 2008
I cannot think of enough complimentary words to express our joy in discovering Joseph Prince’s ministry. My husband found him preaching at 4:00 a.m., December 31st ’07, on the ABC Family Channel, and we’ve anxiously anticipated his daily programs ever since. After watching him for a couple of weeks, we just had to have two copies of Destined to Reign as quickly as possible. Happily, Amazon came through for us immediately. Within a few days, we had the books in hand. We shut everything down possible for a couple of days, and read with delight and hunger. For years, we had sought out the grace message – what it means to be justified by grace through faith – and couldn’t get over the wonder of all that Jesus accomplished on the cross for us. And now we found a young minister fully expounding these wonders in fresh and awesome ways to our delight. Once you’ve tasted, you’re always hungry for more; it always seems like a new wonder.
Joseph was already the pastor of New Creation Church in Singapore in 1997, and he was already a grace preacher, he thought, when he was confronted by the Lord about his preaching a mixture of law and grace. The Lord confronted him with this statement: “If you don’t preach grace radically, people’s lives will never be radically blessed and radically transformed.” Since that strong mandate, Joseph’s church has grown from 2,000 to 16,000. Now he says, “My only endeavor is to preach the same gospel that Paul preached and no other gospel.” Continue reading
