Have you ever watched a YouTube video showing a Pentecostal type of healing service, and been appalled by the lack of dignity, and the irreverence shown during the procedures?

The most well known examples of this type of unholy carry-on can be seen in videos of Benny Hinn meetings, and some other demonstrations of this sort are even worse!

You’re left shaking your head, and wondering how that type of circus carry-on could possibly be endorsed by God.

I strongly believe it’s not! Scripture says it’s not.

See 1 Cor 14:33 and 1 Cor 14:40.

However, could the large number of healings around today all be fake? Are some people actually healed in this modern era?

Is divine healing for today, or not?

I’ve had those sorts of questions for many years.

My main question has been, if some of the healings are genuine, why would God work through people that have such woefully incorrect doctrines?

Let’s look into this more deeply.

I personally believe being “slain in the spirit” IS fully demonic, but not all healings are of demonic origin.

In a video from Curry Blake, talking about many of the early healing ministries, Curry explained that although some of their beliefs were not accurate, their faith in God, that God is still a healer today, WAS accurate, and as a result, God met their faith!

Before you watch any of Curry’s videos, here are a couple of Mike Hoesch videos I recommend first.

Most of modern Christianity get it wrong in the way they seek healing. This is explained by Curry Blake. Curry’s teachings are usually good, but not all of Curry’s doctrines or statements are correct.

The Hem of His Garment

In Mark 5:24-34 there is a story about a woman who touched the hem of Jesus garment and was healed.

However, the story of Jesus’ garment follows on in Mark 6:55 and Mark 6:56. Also Matt 14:36.

The detail about the hem of Jesus’ garment is interesting.

Mark’s account says that just touching Jesus healed them, but in Matthew’s account it appears to say they specifically touched his hem. I don’t know which scenario is most accurate. But could there be a reason to touch his hem?

Actually, yes!

An obvious reason is those who were lying on beds would not have had to reach up so far to do it.

However, for those standing, touching his hem physically, would require BOWING DOWN to Jesus, but because Jesus was God in the flesh, and because humans come from the ground and return to it (see Gen 3:19) and because Jesus came from above (John 8:23) , SYMBOLICALLY, they would have been REACHING UP to touch Jesus’ hem.

In Numbers 15:38-41 there is a command to put a blue ribbon on the hem of garments. Jesus’ garment would have had a hem with a blue ribbon in it. It is said that the blue symbolised the sky, but the Bible indicates touching the blue ribbon symbolised touching all righteousness, which Jesus fulfilled.

The Fringe of Time

There is one more interesting thing about the hem.

Mal 4:2 saysBut unto you that fear (i.e. give worship to/respect) my name, shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his WINGS.

The word WINGS is Strong’s H3670 and means an edge/extremity/border/corner/uttermost part.

In a garment, the edge means the hem. Jesus had healing on the wings, or edges of his garment.

Touching the hem fulfilled prophecy… There is a 2,000 year time gap since Jesus came to earth, and we are living on the EDGE/FRINGE/HEM of prophesied TIME, but healing is still available to us today because, according to that prophecy, Jesus HAS arisen with healing in his wings (or edges).

It’s one more of many promises for healing that you can claim.

It may be as simple as this:

“I am bowing down to Jesus and I am metaphorically reaching up to touch the hem of His garment. I am set free right now… From this day forward, I am fully healed, and I praise God for it. In Jesus’ name & by His authority I command healing. So be it.”
