The Apple and the Bun

The Apple and the Bun–Healing Power in Communion

The Apple and the Bun

God Heals through the Eucharist (Holy Communion)

The apple symbolizes death and separation; the bun symbolizes Life and communion with Christ Jesus.

Can you imagine the condition of the Israelites just before the Exodus? They were slaves, harassed and whipped by merciless slave masters. Without a doubt, many were sick, weak, or injured. They were laden with the diseases of Egypt. Then, in one night, something dramatic, something as momentous as the Exodus itself occurred.

They ate the Passover Lamb.

Psalm 105:37 relates the thrilling result of eating this Lamb, the figure of Christ Jesus:

Then He brought them out with silver and gold, and among His tribes there was not one who stumbled.

The King James Version translates and there was not one feeble person among their tribes.

And all of them were healthy and strong states the Good News Translation.

Oh, the power of the Lamb! The Passover Lamb was for the healing of a nation! Oh, to claim the power of the Passover Feast.

Communion (Lord’s Supper, Last Supper, Eucharist or whatever we choose to call it) is rooted in the Passover. As historic as the Passover is, it is merely the forerunner of the Eucharist. The Lord’s Supper is the fulfillment of the Passover. The Eucharist is the perfection of the Passover and completes it’s purpose and power.

Look with me at the Lord’s Supper.


The Apple and the Bun

Eve (and Adam) ate the apple. The world immediately fell into sin. We call it The Fall.

Christ died on the cross. The world was gloriously lifted out of sin. We call it Redemption. Communion celebrates His death and resurrection.

Adam ate in unbelief; in contrast, Christ died in faith.

Adam bit the apple in disobedience. Christ tasted death in obedience.

Adam’s act in unbelief destined the world to death; Christ’s faithful act destined the world to life for all who believe.

Adam’s lack of trust brought a curse; Christ’s faithfulness issued a never-ending blessing.

Adam’s sin brought condemnation; Christ’s obedience brought the twin free gifts — the abundance of grace and the gift of eternal righteousness (Romans 5:17).

Adam’s act brought separation; Christ’s act brought communion with God.

In communion, we eat the bun, the Bread of Life.

Just as Adam’s sin (eating the apple) brought a certain curse, so Christ’s act (along with those who eat the Bread) bring certain blessings.

To eat the Bun (the Bread) is to reverse the curse of the apple. Jesus said, This is My body, broken for you. Certain consequences automatically ensued when Eve ate the apple. In a different way, certain results supernaturally pursue those who eat the Bun in faith.

I say, in a different way, because the Bible emphasizes the results of the death of Christ are MUCH MORE in magnitude, in power, and in certainty than the results of the sin of Adam. The death of Christ is NOT like the sin of Adam. The results of the death of Christ and the eating of the loaf (the Bun) are much more certain and powerful.

Supernatural breakouts emanate from tasting the Bun in faith during this God designed event, the Eucharist.

In her book Miracles Do Happen, Sister Briege McKenna, O.S. C. relates the following story about a mass in a rural area of Latin America.



…I realized the important aspect of the Eucharis is not what I do, but what Jesus does and what I allow Him to do in Me. I must let the loving Jesus heal me and transform me through His body and blood. It is not my effort alone, but His action, that transforms me.


A little boy was brought there who was suffering from very severe burns and sores on his body. I remember thinking, “My goodness, there’s nothing that can be done. It’s so bad. We have no doctors or medicine here.”


We prayed with the little boy, then the priest said to the old woman wo had carried him to the mass, “Just leave him under the table here and let’s continue with the celebration of the Eucharist.”


As the mass progressed, I was overwhelmed at the participation of the people in the mass.


As we approached the consecration, I had my eyes closed. When I opened them I discovered that the people were prostrated on the ground. They lifted up their eyes to adore the Lord. The look on their faces made me think, “They really believe that this is Jesus.” Then when I looked at the sacred Host [at Jesus], in my own imagination, I got the most beautiful image of Jesus with His two hands out. He was smiling with great love and compassion.


After this mass, I went around to see how the little boy was. He had been placed under the table which served as the altar. But he wasn’t there. I said to the woman who had brought him to the mass, “Where is he?” She said, pointing to a group of children playing nearby, “There he is.”


I looked at the child and he was fine. There wasn’t a thing wrong with his little body.


I said aloud, but more to myself, “What happened to him?”


The old woman looked at me and said, “What do you mean, ‘What happened?’ Didn’t Jesus come?”

Here are the points. There are certain, definite results for those who follow the man who tasted the apple in the garden: sin, sickness and death. There are certain, definite results for those who follow the Man who tasted death on the cross: forgiveness, health and eternal life.

According to Romans 5 the latter is much more certain than the former!

Holy Communion (eating the Bun) connects the believer with the crucified and risen Lord Jesus Christ.

What are You Eating — The Apple or the Bun?

The Apple and the Bun.

There’s more to this than a catchy title. Jesus said, “This is My body.” Let’s chew on that awhile.

We have seen spontaneous deliverance and other supernatural manifestations. I am expecting to see more. At our next communion, let’s expect to meet Christ and experience His manifestation.

What have you seen as a result of the Lord’s Supper? Do me a favor and pass on what God is doing in your church or your own experience of Holy Communion.

Natural Healing vs Instant Miracle Healing

Natural Healing vs Instant Miracle Healing

Natural Healing vs Instant Miracle Healing

Publisher’s note: My wonderful wife Kari is a faithful witness to my natural healing vs instant miracle healing. She saw every bit of my suffering and trial through cancer. She held my hand when I could barely walk. She read to me when I could not read. She fought the fight of life with me that God would restore my life. Hear her report as we pass on what we have learned. We praise God together for natural as well as spiritual healing.

Natural Healing vs Instant Miracle Healing

Mark has been teaching a series about insights into healing for our adult Bible class, especially as it relates to natural healing vs instant miracle healing. When I read Revelation 22 for my morning devotions, the fact that the leaves of the tree (of life) were for the healing of the nations (verse 2), it stood out to me.

It dawned on me that God provided natural healing from the beginning of creation. Genesis 2:9  …the Lord God caused to grow every tree that is pleasing to the sight and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

The only tree forbidden to be eaten was the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. That means that initially, God wanted them to eat from the tree of life and be healthy. Revelations 22:2 explains that the leaves of the tree of life were for the healing [health]of the nations.

From the very beginning, God’s design was for natural health/healing with plants. Of course, all this changed. In Genesis 3:22-24, He stationed the cherubim, and the flaming sword which turned every directions, to guard the way to the tree of life. It shows that even before Christ’s death on the cross where His stripes made us whole, God’s desire was to provide a way of health and healing for us.

We live in marvelous times because God is restoring the truth of natural healing. (Just for the record, we are not vegetarians and we also eat meat.) While this post focuses on natural healing, we also believe firmly in spiritual healing. On Jan 15, 2012 I felt the Lord whisper to me, “I will heal your husband — soon.” Several supernatural encounters with God followed.

Natural Healing vs Instant Miracle Healing: What I have Seen

I have personally witnessed Mark’s amazing recovery from stage 4 inoperable cancer. When 14 rounds of chemo did not succeed in healing cancer or keeping it away, God led us to seek out natural cures. To this day, Mark takes no medicine but is careful to eat a natural anti-cancer diet.

Two of the most effective things he does every day is drink Essiac Tea and the Budwig Protocol. Essiac Tea is a Canadian Ojibwa tribe concoction consisting of four plants: Burdock, Slippery Elm, Sheep Sorrel and Turkish Rhubarb root. The recipe is easily found online. This “Tea of Life” is responsible on its own for curing many cases of cancer.

The Budwig Protocol is also natural and is made from only two ingredients: cottage cheese and flax oil. Mixed together in proper proportions, allowed to rest a few minutes and then blended on a high speed in a blender, this mixture forces oxygen into cells, killing the cancer in those cells. This recipe is also freely available online.

I want to repeat. We truly live in marvelous times!

My Own Story of Natural Healing vs Instant Miracle Healing

I also have my own story of natural plant healing. As a child, I had reoccurring rheumatic fever, once spending three months in bed with very achy legs, missing school and having home doctor visits. I remember some friends of my parents telling them, “Give her alfalfa tablets!” Well, my situation was so desperate my parents were willing to try almost anything, so they gave me alfalfa tablets. I still remember those huge things that yes, smelled every bit like alfalfa. I recovered and have been healthy ever since!

Recently, I had to replace my lost eyeglasses. When filling out the health forms at the eye doctor, the receptionist said, “Kari, if there’s not enough room to list your meds, you can give me a list and I’ll copy it off and staple it onto the page.” I looked at her and chuckled, “Well, I take [only] Vitamin C!” “You’re lucky!” She replied.

So, I say, “Thank you, Jesus for not only providing healing on the cross but also natural healing from the leaves of the tree. You desire that we live in divine health!”

Dear John McCain

John McCain Brain Cancer

John McCain Brain Cancer

Dear John McCain,

I heard you have brain cancer and that you are taking chemotherapy treatments. God bless you and may you soon recover. You became a hero to me during your days of captivity in Viet Nam.

I too had cancer – the worst kind, stage four inoperable cancer. I write you because I had a pastor friend with cancer similar to yours. If I had known then what I know now, I might have been able to save him. I didn’t know how to help him, so I lost him. I don’t want to remain silent with you now.

Your situation is undoubtedly different from mine. I took chemo, got better, and thought I was cured. But after 30 days the cancer came roaring back with a vengeance. I nearly died. The doctor gave me a 10% chance to survive. I took more chemo, but realized that if I were to survive, I’d have to find something beyond conventional medicine.

Many well-meaning people offered me advice – advice that I didn’t need and didn’t ask for. I do not want to do that with you. I simply ask, “What can I do to help?”

If you wish, I could send you a copy of my book Answer for Cancer: 9 Keys. But I won’t send it unless you ask. Alternatively, you can get it directly from Amazon.

Please take heart. I am well today because of the keys in the book. Nobody needs to die from cancer anymore. There’s hope. Cancer is not a death sentence.

One of the keys that helped me was Christian meditation. While I was meditating on a Bible passage, God’s presence came over me in such a way that I knew I was healed. I did other natural things too.

I like to say, “I’m not in remission, I’m on a mission — a mission to see many people freed from cancer.

I pray for your quick recovery. May God bless you.

Sincerely,

Mark
