The anointed thread
Andy and Larry
"The Lord said to Moses, 'Speak to the Israelites and say to them:
Throughout the generations to come, you are to make tassels on the corners of one's garments, with a blue cord on each tassel. You will have these tassels to look at and so will remember all the commands of the Lord, that you may OBEY them and not PROSTITUTE yourselves by going after the lusts of your own hearts and eyes. Then you will remember to obey all My commands, and will be consecrated to your God. I am the Lord your God.'"(Numbers 15:37-41)
I am reminded of psalm 133 where it says the "oil" or anointing flows even to the hem (tallit) of Aaron's garment through UNITY. The "Tallit, tzitziyot or hem was the blue thread that God commanded the Israelites to place on the corner of their garments. It was there to remind them to OBEY God's commandments that would make them one if they obeyed Him. All ministry is to bring us into the unity of faith where God proclaims His blessing. God desires to bless us, but to which group would He bless since we honor each his own ministry..
It was also Jesus' "tallit" that the woman who had the issue of blood touched and was healed. Jesus did whatever the Father told Him, He was our example, and yet we are tossed to and fro by the winds of men. Have we forgot, "Let God be true and every man a liar." Have we given up the striving to enter the narrow gate and have we instead allowed men to determine our eternal life?
Remember when David cut off the corner of Saul's garment when he was asleep in the cave? David's heart convicted him because he was in effect saying to Saul, "Saul, you have forgotten God's commands and now I mark you as having done so by removing the corner of your hem."
We can see by this brief revelation that we have forsaken much through our division. We no longer obey God's commands (love him with all our hearts and our neighbor as ourselves) and we thus have lost the HEALING that goes with it. If we get back to the unity of the body then we will see people empowered to love and be empowered to heal.
"But for you who revere My name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in His wings" (Mal. 4:2).
The Hebrew word for "wings" used in this passage is kanaf, which is a word that specifically means the fringe-like feathers or edges of a bird's wing, not the whole wing.(it means the healing will come from the hem of his garment)
Mark 6:56, "Wherever He entered, into villages, cities, or the country, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, and begged Him that they might just touch the hem of His garment. And as many as touched Him were made well." NKJV
