There were several technical problems during filming this week and as a result some of the content did not have adequate sound. So we have provided both a written and video newsletter for this week. For more content on today’s message, we encourage you to read the blog below as well as watching the video. May God be glorified and we pray you will be blessed.
We learn from the gospels that many people received God’s divine healing when they simply touched the hem of Jesus’ garment. What are you needing from the Lord this week? How might you ‘touch His garment’ to receive?
The word salvation is multi-faceted. The simplest definition is” to be delivered (or rescued) from peril.” Salvation does not only include the forgiveness of sins and the promise of eternal life, but much more! Whatever “peril” you are experiencing from this fallen world — the need for healing, deliverance, protection, provision, or anything that diminishes God’s plan for your life — the answer or solution to your need is found in Jesus.
In these scripture passages we see salvation being provided in the benefit of healing–but the lesson teaches us principles that go beyond healing, to the power of Jesus to meet our need.
Luke 8:43-48 describes a powerful event of healing. “Now a woman, having a flow of blood for twelve years, who had spent all her livelihood on physicians and could not be healed by any, came from behind and touched the border of His garment. And immediately her flow of blood stopped. And Jesus said, “Who touched Me?” When all denied it, Peter and those with him said, “Master, the multitudes throng and press You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’ ”But Jesus said, “Somebody touched Me, for I perceived power going out from Me.” Now when the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling; and falling down before Him, she declared to Him in the presence of all the people the reason she had touched Him and how she was healed immediately. And He said to her, “Daughter, be of good cheer; your faith has made you well. Go in peace.”
Isn’t it interesting that many touched Jesus as He moved through the throng but one person with faith who touched the hem of His garment caused power to flow out of Him. Jesus responded to the flow of power leaving Him. This passage includes all the explanations to know not only that the woman was healed but what her circumstances and long road to healing looked like. It also gives us the awesome description of what one touch of Jesus with faith, can accomplish.
Following the event where Peter walked on water, the disciples and Jesus landed on shore where many people came to Jesus for healing. His reputation had preceded Him and people had heard that He healed all types of physical needs. They had faith because they had heard of the many reports. And even though these people did not yet understand that Jesus was the Son of God, they had faith that He was from God and had the power to heal… so their faith was strong.
Matthew 14:34-36 “When they had crossed over, they came to the land of Gennesaret. And when the men of that place recognized Him, they sent out into all that surrounding region, brought to Him all who were sick, and begged Him that they might only touch the hem of His garment. And as many as touched it were made perfectly well.”
