Theme: The Anointing
Topic: Contact with Cloth
“And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul: So that from his body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them.”
People can get healed by touching anointed individuals. When it’s not possible for a preacher to touch you, reach out and touch him or her. The anointing in the spirit of a person saturates his or her body with power.
This power rubs off onto the person’s clothes from the body because of God’s presence in the spirit of him or her. When we touch the garments of such a person, we come into contact with the anointing.
The woman with the issue of blood for twelve years understood the power of contact with the garments on an anointed person. She touched Jesus Christ against all odds and was healed (Luke 8:33-34). The woman suffered from haemorrhage for twelve years and the physicians of the day failed to heal her.
God specialises in healing incurable diseases. When she touched Jesus’ garment “virtue” (power) left His body and went into her and her blood flow stopped instantly. The power did not come from His garment but from His body through the garment.
Someone with the anointing can touch a piece or pieces of cloth and impart anointing into them. When this piece of cloth is put on the sick they get healed. In this way, the anointing is multiplied because it is transferred onto many pieces of cloths which can touch several people at a time.
Transferring the anointing via pieces of cloth and the anointing oil enables the anointing to be carried to places where the preacher cannot go personally.
Pray that your earthen vessel shall be a means by which the anointing of God shall be transferred to those who need it through handkerchiefs and cloths.
