    Something that the Lord showed me, and I’ve since been mulling over, is simply that He said when we take of the communion cup we are to remember His death UNTIL HE COMES. Is that what is meant by rightly discerning the body and blood of the Lord? The teachings of the Daniel Training Network are an enormous challenge to me. Very timely that the Lord should raise it up at this time.

    Hi Kathy, thanks for commenting! We’re really glad you’ve been blessed and strengthened by our resources here at the DTN site.

    For the others reading this comment, the verse you’re referencing is from 1 Corinthians 11.

    According to Paul, there’s a two-fold goal of partaking in the Lord’s supper, both of which are a “proclamation” or an outward declaration to others (and not merely an inward-focused reality, though there is much truth to that):

    1) To remember and proclaim that God has provided a means of atonement for our sin through the shed blood and death of the Messiah

    2) To remember and proclaim that, though the Messiah was crucified, God is patient and will indeed send the Messiah again and bring to pass all that has been promised in the Law and the Prophets

    This worshipping celebration supper has a “fear of the Lord” dimension as well in which we must eat it with repentant/believing hearts that actually believe in His approaching Day in which those that are not worthy to inherit His Kingdom will be judged and thrown into the lake of fire.

    I’ll put the verse below and make some comments inline in parenthesis that I hope will clarify the verses for you:

    “For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the
    Lord’s death (His atoning/amnestic sacrifice that calls us to repent and believe) 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 (Messiah’s atoning sacrifice) eats and drinks judgment (at Day of the Lord) on himself. 30 That is why many of you are weak and ill, and some have died (sign of 2nd death/lake of fire). 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 (at the Day of Lord). 33 So then, my brothers, when you come together to eat, wait for one another– 34 if anyone is hungry, let him eat at home–so that when you come together it will not be for judgment.”

    (1 Corinthians 11:26-34)

    To not “discern the body” I believe involves not realizing the magnitude of what Messiah has done through His sacrifice. This is severe, and dishonors the “proclamation” dimension of His death until He comes.

    I hope that helps Kathy! Let me know if you have any other questions!
