He sees you

In Matthew 9 we begin reading about a woman and immediately,  we are struck with the fact that she was anonymous. She was a nameless, faceless woman in the crowd of those pressing into Jesus.

This sick, anonymous woman must have been emaciated after a hemorrhage lasting for twelve years, which rendered her legally unclean. She could not throw herself at the feet of Jesus and state her complaint. Her modesty, humility, and her uncleanness, as well as the pressure of the crowd, made close contact impossible. Hence, her eagerness, her need, her embarrassment, moved her to reach out to touch, in some unnoticed way, the hem of His garment.

Listen to the story:
Now a certain woman had a flow of blood for twelve years and had suffered many things from many physicians. She had spent all that she had and was no better, but rather grew worse. When she heard about Jesus, she came behind Him in the crowd and touched His garment. For she said, “If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well."

Imagine those frail little fingers reaching desperately, yet confidently to just find His hem. Her disease was long-standing, yet with the small vestige of strength she had left in her thin body, she knew if she could only but touch a portion of His robe, even the hem….

And as she did…the fountain of her blood was dried up within her immediately!!

In an instant, she felt her body return to normal. She had been healed from the affliction!

Immediately, Jesus also knew that something powerful had taken place. He said, “Who touched My clothes?” But His disciples said to Him, “You see the multitude thronging You, and You say, “Who touched Me?” Perhaps her touch had been unnoticed by the eyes of those around, but a touch of faith could not be hidden from Him!

And He looked around to see who had done this thing and quickly He saw her...The Physician saw the patient!

But the woman, fearful and trembling, immediately confessed to her touch of His robe, telling Him all.

His response was loving and personal, as He spoke words of affirmation to this nameless, faceless, woman. He called her “Daughter!” What an endearing term. It is personal, not random, nor generalized, as in speaking to a crowd. He looked her in the eye and called her, “Daughter.”

He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well (whole). Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction.” Mark 5:25-34

Her burden of twelve years had been rolled away. She was free to leave in comfort and peace…totally made whole.

 

Attach Yourself to Him

Take note of the fact that she had reached out to TOUCH the hem of His garment.

The word touch means ATTACH.

She wasn’t just getting a quick touch, a much-needed touch from Jesus…she was attaching herself to Him. It is only in our attachment to Jesus that total wholeness can come to us. We don’t just want a random touch here and there. We want the totality of Him in our lives.

There are many today who have “issues.” This woman’s was physical. But the touch of Jesus is not limited to one area of need. It is time for us, male and female, all alike, to come humbly to Him, to come with the kind of desperation this woman must have felt. She had spent all she had endeavoring to find a cure for what ailed her. None was found….until she came to Jesus.

I remember Asher Intrater, speaking to us in Jerusalem this past September saying; when you look at the world around us with all of its explosive needs, when you look at your own situations and the personal places of disappointment, grief, still waiting expectantly for a solution, we are at once also aware, that it is only a Divine encounter, a touch from Heaven, that can make a difference.

This is a time when God is preparing His people. He is cleansing and healing us of all manner of “issues.’ Put yourself on the altar of God’s love and allow Him to free you of every vestige of flesh that lingers in your life. TOUCH Him. ATTACH yourself to Him. Allow Him to make you clean, to make you whole.

Whole means: Free of wound or injury. Recovered. Free of defect or impairment. Physically sound. Complete.

We say, Yes, Jesus! You died to make every element of wholeness true in our lives.

Two days ago, as I returned home from running errands, I heard the sound of a shrill, demanding kind of alarm going off. When I unlocked my door I realized that the alarm was coming from a fire alarm on the second floor of my house and was going off for no apparent reason. Nothing had been disturbed. Nothing was on the verge of exploding in fire. Everything appeared to be in the same order in which I had left it. So, why the alarm? I decided it was just a fluke, or possibly the battery needed to be replaced.

He Is the Firm Foundation

Then a friend of mine brought my attention to an article recently published in Charisma magazine. The title was, “Do You Hear the Alarm?” The author was speaking about a storm coming. I am not an alarmist by nature. Yet, with the increased sound of hate speech and violence in the world, it is impossible to not realize we are living in times that are revealing greater darkness. The need for light, brilliant light is being sought out in an ever-increasing way. People are looking for hope, for encouragement, and for the firm foundation that truth brings.

It is Time

As I said, nothing seemed disturbed in my house. Everything seemed normal. But that is exactly my point. Life is going on around us. Everything can appear to be “normal.” Yet, in the spirit realm, there is an alarm sounding. It has become a sound that cannot be ignored.

It is time…the right time…to make any necessary changes in your life. Does your personal battery need to be recharged? Don’t ignore it. Rest and laughter are necessary. If you are in debt, it is time to take care of it. If you are shy about verbalizing your love to family and friends, now is the time to “get over it” and begin to speak out your love and appreciation. If there are other areas in your life where you have held back, or conversely, you’ve been one to run ahead, then now is the time to learn to walk by the Spirit and align with Heaven in your actions.

Without wanting to sound like an alarmist, I feel there is an urgency to take some necessary steps, as the Lord has been prompting. We do this without a sense of fear, but of preparation.

Take more quiet time to sit in His Presence.
Take time to commune with Him.
Pray from the position of peace.
Speak from that place of inner quietness.

Let Him increase within you so your light becomes even brighter.

As you have often heard me say, Christmas with all it brings, is one of my favorite times of the year. I love the lights. I love the sounds. I love the joy of being with friends and family and giving gifts. I love hearing hearts as we share over a meal, recalling the faithfulness of God throughout the generations.

I recently received a report from the Alaska State Gathering held by Mary Pomeroy, Alaska State Leader, and I wanted to share a specific session lead by Carol Martin, longtime leader in Aglow Alaska. I believe it will bring clarity to what is taking place in Aglow around the world since a major shift began last November.

I have just returned from Asher Intrater’s Alignment Consultation which was held in Jerusalem. It was the gathering of approximately 70-90 Apostolic and Prophetic leaders from around the world.

22.05.2018

As you receive this letter, we have just completed our annual pilgrimage to Israel and the U.S. Embassy has been relocated from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The world is watching this historical and prophetic event as it unfolds. I can only imagine how Heaven rejoices in the acknowledgmentthat Jerusalem is the Capital of Israel. Heaven established it from the beginning and now, the world has either chosen to align and support this realityor to stand in opposition.

When strong words regarding the intentions of God impact the earth, as they did in Richmond at the 50th-anniversary celebration, we are given the choice of responding. Our responses can vary depending on where we are in our walk with the Lord.
