The Power of Personal Communion- Steps to Breakthrough Pt.2- The Bread-The Word of Our Testimony


Notes 8-20-17C

Hebrews 2:4
1 Cor 15:57
2 Cor 10:3-5
Hebrews 12:15

And God confirms His Word by giving signs and wonders and various miracles and gifts of the Holy Spirit.

  • But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ
  • See to it that no one misses the grace of God
  • They defeated the enemy by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony;

Our focus for 2017 : Releasing the power of God through your life

If you’re only around people who don’t need a miracle

You’ll probably never see one

… Mark Lowry

Turn to someone and say: “It’s all about the spiritual.”

TODAY (rebellion, riots, division  our nation)

Characteristics of a Victorious Christian A victorious Christian will need to-

Deal with the enemy

1 Peter 5:8-9 Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.  Resist him, standing firm in the faith

James 4:7 Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

2 Cor 2:11

We are to  know very well what Satan’s plans are.

Cindy Jacobs

The Lord said to me..

I AM MOVING IN THIS SEASON OF PREPARATION.  Teach my church to “LIVE” in the position I have called them and prepare them for ministry.”


God’s teaching are processed

“in us first and  then through us” (Your Ministry to others) “We can’t teach it unless we live it”

We said

  • Many people don’t like to talk about the enemy
  • The enemy wants (ignorance)
  • These people are called VICTIMS (POW)
  • Their life is continually invaded by spiritual attacks and their ministry is neutralized

The Word of God

  • Luke 21:8
  • He replied: “Watch out that you are not deceived. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am he,’
  • Matt 24:24-25
  • Your enemies  will try to fool even the people God has chosen, if that is possible.  Now I have warned you about this before it happens.
  • 2 Cor 11:14-15
  • Even Satan changes himself to look like an angel of light (truth).

We looked at


Gift of Discerning of spirits

The ability given by the Holy Spirit in situations  when it is needed to recognize what spirit is behind  different manifestations or activities. This is often  accompanied by direction on how to deal with the situation

3 Categories of  Spirits

  • Human spirit
  • Holy Spirit
  • Evil spirit (enemy)

General attacks

  • Fear / Worry
  • Inferiority / Insecurity
  • Confusion / unsettled mind (fogginess, lack of memory
  • Anger / victim
  • Condemnation -areas of failure –giving up
  • Busyness / Unbalanced priorities
  • Blaming God

We don’t fight FOR victory

We fight FROM victory

We continue : Personal Communion

I have found personal communion to be one of the most effective tools in:

  • Maintaining Intimacy with the Lord
  • Defeating The Attacks of the Enemy
  • Growth and effectiveness in ministry

Matt. 10:10 Jesus says that I have come you may have life and that life more abundantly

then at the end of his ministry he says do this (Communion) to “remember me at all that I’ve taught you for they will be very important for the days ahead

Luke 22:19 The “this“ is Communion and the Lord wants us personally involved with the dynamic that he taught his disciples

It was not only life-changing it was key to establishing the Kingdom of God (Ministry)

Our focus:

  • Why would Jesus emphasize this action?
  • Why is it so important for us personally?
  • How does it empower us to deal with the bold attacks of the enemy in these days?

We continue

The Powerful weapons of Personal Communion


Let’s look The Elements
(Our weapons)

we looked at

The Powerful weapons of  Personal Communion P

The Cup
(Blood of Jesus)

Most Christians have not been taught to understand the powerful tool (weapon) the Lord has given to us in His Word about the Cup.

They just accept the premise but do not know how to apply it to their daily life.

It’s a powerful weapon against the enemy in our lives, family and ministry

The Cup
(Blood of Jesus)

Rev 12:11 They defeated the enemy by the blood of the Lamb (Jesus) and by the word of their testimony;

The Cup
(Blood of Jesus)

When you call on the Blood of Jesus, you’re not just speaking empty words. You are making a demand on your Blood Covenant with God you received when you  accepted Jesus as your Savior.

The Power of the Blood
(The Cup)

  • Forgives our sins
  • Restores our relationship with God
  • Enables us to live in the peace of Christ
  • Releases  Healing
  • Provides Protection
  • Establishes our authority to the enemy
  • Releases the Power of God daily
  • Releases Victory into every area of our lives
  • Last week we began The Powerful weapons of

Personal Communion 

We looked at The Bread
The Body Of Jesus

We saw how

  • The Word of YOUR TESTIMONY defeats the enemy
  • Most Christians do not know the Word and their authority in Christ
  • Without this understanding you cannot defeat the attacks of the enemy


Rev 12:11They defeated the enemy by the blood of the Lamb

and by the word of their testimony;

They Defeated the enemy

üBlood of the Lamb

üThe Word of their Testimony

  • You defeat the enemy’s involvement in your (yours) life by what Christ did on the cross and the Word of YOUR testimony
  • Essential to your Victory


We looked at

Our Testimony Personal Confessions


Jesus is Lord over every area of my life- my spirit, my soul and my body(Phil. 2:9-11)


Because of Jesus I HAVE God’s favor in my life. There is nothing I cannot do because Christ gives me the strength (1 Cor. 1:30, Phil. 4:13)


 Jesus is my shepherd he watches over me.

God will supply my needs through his ability and abundance. (Ps. 23, Phil.4:19)


I don’t allow anxiety or worry to rule me. I off load my challenges in to the Lord.(Phil. 4:6, 1 Pet. 5:6,7)


I’m a part of the Church of Jesus Christ. He took away all of my sins and enabled me to walk in victory in every area. Because of what Jesus went through I can be healed. I come against every sickness and disease that tries to enter into my body.  Every organ, every tissue of my body functions in the perfection in which God created it to function. I will do my part to honor God in my body bring Him glory. (Gal. 3:13, Matt. 8:17, 1 Pet. 2:24, 1 Cor. 6:20)



I have the mind of Christ and hold the thoughts, feelings and purposes of His heart (1 Cor. 2:16)


I am a believer don’t live in doubt. God said it. I believe it.. I stand by my confession of faith I decide to walk by faith and practice faith.  My faith comes by hearing the Word of God.  Jesus is the one who establishes my faith.  (Heb. 4:14, Heb. 11:6, Rom. 10:17, Heb. 12:2)


 The love of God has been poured out in my heart by the Holy Spirit

and His love lives richly in me. I keep myself in the Kingdom of light, in love, in the Word, and the enemy does not have effectiveness over me.  (Rom. 5:5, 1 Jn. 4:16, 1 Jn. 5:18)


Spiritual Warfare

Jesus has given me authority over all the power of the enemy.

I take my shield of faith and defeat and neutralize every attack God in me is bigger than any challenge the world can bring.  (Lk. 10:19,   Eph. 6:16,   1 Jn. 4:4)


I am not impacted by what’s going on in this world. I have a  position with my Lord in heaven right now. I am a part of the kingdom of God. The Lord has set me free from the manipulations the enemy in the world (Gal. 1:4, Eph. 2:6, Col. 1:13,  Rom. 8:2)

 Correct Thinking

I don’t allow fear or timidity  to manipulate me. It’s not from God. What He has given me is power, love and correct thinking.  God is on my side.  (2 Tim. 1:7, Rom. 8:31)


I hear the leadings.  I hear my Father’s voice, and I will not allow anyone else to deceive me. I’ve cast my cares and worries upon the Lord.. He will cause me to see things from his perspective. I will succeed in whatever challenges I’m facing (Jn. 10:27, Prov. 16:3)


I have victory every day. I look forward to my ministry for the Lord. I am effective and will impact others. The Lord is working within me and on changing and growing every day. (1 Jn. 4, 5,   Eph. 2:10,  Phil. 2:13)


God’s word is changing me causing me to grow. The Holy Spirit is growing within me each day. What He began in me He will complete (Col. 3:16, Phil. 1:6)

  We defeat the enemy by the Blood of the Lamb and the Word of our testimony.

When we acknowledge these truths daily

We will live in VICTORIOUS Christianity

We began

The 8 Steps of “Personal Communion Pt. 1

Step 1  Appreciation

Thanksgiving and Praise

Begin by thanking the Lord for his grace. All the blessings in your life

Ps 100:4-5  Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise;

give thanks to him and praise his name.  5 For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;

Then Praise Him (who He is)

Ps 135:1 Praise the name of the Lord; praise him, you servants of the Lord,

Ps 103:2

2 Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me.

Step 2 Neutralize the enemy

Apply the Cup  (Blood of Jesus)

The reason why so many Christians are coming under such heavy attacks from both demons and evil people in this world is because they do not have God’s full protection on them.

The Blood has power and the enemy is defeated because of it! The work of the cross is the source of all of that power and don’t you forget it! Benny Hinn

Eph 1:7 In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, (freedom from the enemy’s attacks) according to the riches of His grace

Matt 26:28 for this is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for forgiveness of sins (freedom from the enemy)

Step 3 Put on the Armor of God

Step 4 Declare your authority and victory through Christ


Isa 54:17

No weapon formed against you shall prosper

1 John 4:4-5

Greater is  He who is in you than he who is in the world.

1 Cor 15:57

But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Step 5 Receive the Cup



Step 6

Declare your Testimony- see Your Confessions of Faith

The Bread

Rec. 12:11They defeated the enemy by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony;

Bring your needs to the Lord (specific)
Share your heart with God

Declare the Word ( see Personal Confessions)  against your needs

You don’t just visualize…

You need to verbalize


Step 7

Take the Bread

Steps 8

Declare Victory by Faith

“I receive answers to my prayers and I walk in victory this day in Jesus” name.”

1 John 5:14-15

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 15 And if we know that he hears us — whatever we ask — we know that we have what we asked of him.

Rom 8:28 

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

1 Cor 15:57

But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Psalm 90: 14  & 17

Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all of our days.

May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for us – yes, establish the work of our hands .
