Communion Fast Overview
The Communion Fast
The Communion Fast:
For His Manifest Glory
The covenant promises of God throughout Scripture confirm the remarkable hope we find in the Lord. The covenant promises of God bring incredible revelation of GOD’S GRACE; GOD’S FAITHFULNESS; GOD’S MERCY AND GOD’S LOVE for all of humanity. In the Communion Fast we begin on DAY 1 celebrating these remarkable attributes of the Lord and the hope He alone brings to our lives. Let’s get started by reflecting on the Redemptive Names of God below and the Scriptures provided for each.
I cannot overstate at the beginning of this Fast enough the immeasurable value of Journaling Your Journey! Journal TODAY the things you hear the Lord ministering to you.
Discover today on the Redemptive Names of God and begin to declare His attributes over your life:
Jehovah: (Yahweh or Jah) The Lord, Covenant Redeemer (Exodus 2:23-24). The Lord heard their cry and remembered His covenant! Know today the Lord hears your cry with the faithfulness of His remembrance. Let your cry come before Him.
Jehovah-Elohim: The Creator of Redemption (Genesis 2:4). This passage reveals the origin of and the history of generations, families in the earth. The Power of God moved upon the earth establishing order and bringing forth generations. Rejoice today that He has brought you forth!
Jehovah-Elohim-Saboath: The Lord God of Hosts (Psalm 84:8). The Lord is Lord of “hosts” which means that which goes forth, army, warfare, host whether organized of men or of angels. Rejoice today in the right season, the right time the Lord of hosts will bring you out of and in to all that He has purposed for you!
Adonai-Jehovah-Saboath: Master, Lord of Hosts (Psalm 69:6). Here He is called Master, “Adonay”. It is a title used for God and some of its meanings are Master, King, firm and strong, husband. The Lord is strong and Mighty and He gives to us the power to live the Champion Life! Decree today you are deeply loved and living Champion Life!
Jah-Jehovah: Lord Jehovah for double emphasis (Isaiah 12:2; 26:4). “I will trust and not be afraid for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song He also is become my salvation”. Rejoice today in the Lord and do not be afraid! Decree freedom from fear over your life today!
Jah-Elohim: Lord God (Psalm 68:18). The Lord ascended on high and lead captivity captive!

Write a sentence of thanksgiving for each of the four attributes of God mentioned: His Grace, His Faithfulness, His Mercy and His Love:

Jehovah-Jireh: The Lord Who Provides (Genesis 22:14). Literally, the Lord Who will see to it! I love that!

He is the supernatural sustaining, strengthening One who will “see to it”!
Jehovah-Rapha: The Lord Who Heals (Exodus 15:26). What an amazing passage! The word means to thoroughly make whole or to heal and make healthy! Decree today the Lord is your healer and He desires to make you thoroughly whole and complete through His covenant promise!

Jehovah-Mekaddeskum: The Lord Who Sanctifies (Exodus 31:13; Lev. 20:8). The word means to set apart, to consecrate, to prepare or to make pure.

Decree today you are set apart, consecrated and fully prepared to become all He has called you and equipped you to become.
Jehovah-Shalom: The Lord Our Peace (Judges 6:24). Again, we find this revelation of the nature and attribute of God emerging from the worship of Gideon building an altar. The Lord is our Peace. The Lord is the Prince of Peace! Decree peace over your life, family and all that you have and call your own including His divine purpose and plan for your life.

Who is this King of Glory? The Lord of hosts, He is the King of Glory”. Decree Him to be the King of Glory over your life and the Communion Fast. We are fasting for the manifest glory of His appearing!
Jehovah-Elyon: The Lord Most High (Psalm 7:17)
