READ: 2 Kings 2:9-14
“For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.” - Mark 5:28
The invisible power of the Holy Spirit is translated into the physical. That is why physical methods like the laying on of hands, the anointing with oil and the coming into contact with garments can transmit the power of the Holy Spirit.
The woman with the issue of blood believed that if only she could touch the garment of Jesus, she would be healed. You can receive the healing anointing through garments.
In Matthew 14:34-36, notice how a whole city just wanted to touch the garments of Jesus. They knew that the anointing was in the garment.
One day, two prophets were walking by the river; one was anointed and the other was not. The younger prophet asked the older prophet if he could have twice as much of his anointing.
The older laughed and said that he had asked a hard thing. Suddenly, a chariot of fire appeared and the older prophet was whisked away to Heaven. The younger prophet looked around him. And there was the garment! It had been left behind.
The young prophet knew that the anointing could be in the garment. He took up the garment (mantle) and smote the waters of the river Jordan. When the river responded to the mantle, the young prophet knew that he had picked up an anointed garment. The garment contained the anointing and he had the garment.
This is a biblical method that makes the anointing flow. When people have faith, the anointing is activated. The healing anointing is mysterious!
Start your day with a blessing from the WORD!!!
