How Healing Comes – Avenue #11

There is a way to obtain Biblical healing that we can call ‘impetuous action’. The woman with the issue of blood was not prayed for, she simply forced her way in and touched the hem of Jesus garment. Reading the account in Mark 5:25-30, we see,

25 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years… 27 When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, 28 because she thought, “If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed.” 29 Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering. 30 At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, “Who touched my clothes?”

We see here that she was not prayed for, nor did anyone anoint her with oil. Rather, she made her way against the crowd and against convention and impetuously touched Jesus cloak.

What makes this all the more interesting is that Jesus did not know who the power had flowed out to. This reinforces the point I have made more that once, namely, He ministered as an anointed man, not as the Son of God.

Can this apply to us? Yes, absolutely. I once strategically headed off a UK pastor with a strong gift of healing after he had finished teaching and was headed for the door. I asked him to lay hands on my stomach as I had been having persistent stomach troubles. I must confess I literally grabbed his hand and laid it on my stomach and never had those troubles again. I was impetuous, a bit like the woman with the issue of blood or the folks in Acts 5,

15 As a result, people brought the sick into the streets and laid them on beds and mats so that at least Peter’s shadow might fall on some of them as he passed by.

They just caught his shadow and were healed as a result. Find pastors who have powerful healing anointings and be impetuous if you have to. Have you had a similar experience?

    I did this by going to my church and having them pray for me. I have not yet received that healing though I so earnestly desire.

    I have prayed for you this morning, regarding your healing. I strongly believe in what God is doing through local Healing Rooms. I’m not sure what state you are in, but there may be a Healing Room near you. The link to find one is:


    If you have several choices, call them and talk to them and prayerfully select one. Let me know what God does in your life.
