If I but touch His clothes...
Zechariah8:23 "This is what the Lord Almighty says: “In those days ten people from all languages and nations will take firm hold of one Jew by the hem of his robe and say, ‘Let us go with you because we have heard that God is with you.’”
This prophecy was accomplished by Jesus Christ while he was going to heal a dying daughter of Jairus who was twelve -years- old, suddenly a woman who had been bleeding for twelve years came up behind Jesus and barely touched his clothes, and was healed of her disease. Luke8:40-48 " Everyone had been waiting for Jesus, and when he came back, a crowd was there to welcome him. 41 Just then the man in charge of the Jewish meeting place came and knelt down in front of Jesus. His name was Jairus, and he begged Jesus to come to his home 42 because his twelve-year-old child was dying. She was his only daughter.
While Jesus was on his way, people were crowding all around him. 43 In the crowd was a woman who had been bleeding for twelve years. She had spent everything she had on doctors,[i] but none of them could make her well.44 As soon as she came up behind Jesus and barely touched his clothes, her bleeding stopped.
45 “Who touched me?” Jesus asked.
While everyone was denying it, Peter said, “Master, people are crowding all around and pushing you from every side.”[j]
46 But Jesus answered, “Someone touched me because I felt the power going out from me.” 47 The woman knew that she could not hide, so she came trembling and knelt down in front of Jesus. She told everyone why she had touched him and that she had been healed right away.
48 Jesus said to the woman, “You are now well because of your faith. May God give you peace!”
We recall that the woman who had been bleeding twelve years represents the people of SAMARIA who have been rebelling the kingdom of Rehoboam and chose Jeroboam as a king instead of Rehoboam. Then king Jeroboam made them worshiping the foreign gods, by building two gold statues of calves. 1Kings12:15-20 " When the people realized that Rehoboam would not listen to them, they shouted: “We don’t have to be loyal to David’s family. We can do what we want. Come on, people of Israel, let’s go home! Rehoboam can rule his own people.”
Adoniram[c] was in charge of the forced labor, and Rehoboam sent him to talk to the people. But they stoned him to death. Then Rehoboam ran to his chariot and hurried back to Jerusalem.
So the people from the northern tribes of Israel went home, leaving Rehoboam to rule only the people from the towns of Judah. Ever since that day, the people of Israel have opposed David’s family in Judah. All of this happened just as the Lord’s prophet Ahijah had told Jeroboam.
20 When the Israelites heard that Jeroboam was back, they called everyone together. Then they sent for Jeroboam and made him king of Israel. Only the people from the tribe of Judah[d] remained loyal to David’s family."
On the other hand, the twelve-year-old child who was dying represents two tribes which are Judah and Benjamin in capital Jerusalem and had Rehoboam as a king. These people basically represent Israel who still waiting for the Messia to heal them. Song of Song8:8 "We have a little sister
are not yet formed.
If someone asks to marry her,
what should we do? It's too close to be a mere coincidence, seeing two fellows having the same number, Jarius daughter was twelve-year-old and the bleeding woman suffers twelve years of disease. So let make some calculus twelve plus twelve equal twenty-four. That makes us think on the throne of God Revelation4:4 " Surrounding the throne were twenty-four other thrones, and seated on them were twenty-four elders. They were dressed in white and had crowns of gold on their heads.
We recall that twenty-four elders surrounding the throne represent the twelve tribes of Israel as well as twelve Apostles of Jesus Christ.
Although, God has declares to king David that one of his offspring will succeed him; and his kingdom will last forever; they were a scission.
According to Colossians2:17 " These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ.
We understood that God statement was for Jesus Christ, who is an offspring of David. Matthew1:1 "This is the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah the son of David, the son of Abraham:
2Corinthians5:18 " All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation:
Reconcile is the action to make a friendly again or settle a quarrel according to the dictionary.
So that ten tribes of Samaria[gentils] who chose Jeroboam, as a king, and start prostitute by worshiping foreign gods have lost connection [relationship] with God and were excluded from entering into God temple; because of their impurity according to Moses law . Leviticus15:25 " Any woman who has a flow of blood outside her regular monthly period is unclean until it stops, just as she is during her monthly period. In other words, these people[Samaria] represent the people of the nations who was far away from God because of worshiping multiple gods. In fact, by touching the Lord Jesus on the hem of his robe, this woman[church] becomes one with him. 1Corinthians6:16 Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, “The two will become one flesh.”then she conceived a child 1John5:12 " whoever has the son has life; whoever does not have the son of God does not have life.] Ephesians2:11-18 " Don’t forget that you are Gentiles. In fact, you used to be called “uncircumcised” by those who take pride in being circumcised. At that time you did not know about Christ. You were foreigners to the people of Israel, and you had no part in the promises that God had made to them. You were living in this world without hope and without God, and you were far from God. But Christ offered his life’s blood as a sacrifice and brought you near God. Christ has made peace between Jews and Gentiles, and he has united us by breaking down the wall of hatred that separated us. Christ gave his own body 15 to destroy the Law of Moses with all its rules and commands. He even brought Jews and Gentiles together as though we were only one person when he united us in peace. 16 On the cross, Christ did away with our hatred for each other. He also made peace[b] between us and God by uniting Jews and Gentiles in one body. 17 Christ came and preached peace to you Gentiles, who were far from God, and peace to us Jews, who were near God. 18 And because of Christ, all of us can come to the Father by the same Spirit.
As a descendant of David, Lord Jesus Christ came to unite the kingdom of his father[David] by working as a mediator between two nations which is Judah and Samaria. Then he will reign in all countries as king Solomon was in the passed. Unfortunately, for now; it's only people of Samaria who have been reconciled to God; that means the Church and some of Israel people who believe in Jesus Christ. The kingdom of Judah will be reconciled with God after the Church goes on the Millenium party with Jesus Christ.1Thessalonians4:15-18 " According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words.
As the meaning of Israel is the one who challenges with man and God; Israel, crazy virgin and the son of perdition are going to pass through the tribulation. But because their name was written in the book of the lamb; Almighty God going to mark their forehead to keep them away from the destructors.
Revealtion7:3 "Don’t harm the earth or the sea or any tree! Wait until I have marked the foreheads of the servants of our God.”
We recall that only Israel and the crazy virgin are going to get that mark on their forehead. Then, God will send two messengers to remind Israel on the faith of their father.
Malachi4:5-6 “See, I will send the prophet Elijah to you before that great and dreadful day of the Lord comes. 6 He will turn the hearts of the parents to their children, and the hearts of the children to their parents; or else I will come and strike the land with total destruction.” Then suddenly the Lord will appear in the temple. Malachi3:1 " I will send my messenger, who will prepare the way before me. Then suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to his temple; the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire, will come," say the Lord Almighty.
That represent a time of restoration for the kingdom of Judah. In other words, the Lord will go heal the twelve-year-old daughter of Jairus. Malachi4:5-6 is equal to Revelation11:4 which saying about two witnesses who will be killed by the beast and they will get a life again from God. Then by the seventh trumpets, Jesus will appear on the Olive mountain to avenge Israel people. Satan will be arrested and put in prison for thousand years. Revelation20:1-3" I saw an angel come down from heaven, carrying the key to the deep pit and a big chain. 2 He chained the dragon for a thousand years. It is that old snake, who is also known as the devil and Satan. 3 Then the angel threw the dragon into the pit. He locked and sealed it, so that a thousand years would go by before the dragon could fool the nations again. But after that, it would have to be set free for a little while.
We recall that the seven seals of the Revelation6 had already started and the Church participates only to fourth seals; then the church; as a virgin wise will rejoin Jesus Christ in the sky.
But don’t be fooled! People will rebel against God. Then before the Lord returns, the wicked one who is doomed to be destroyed will appear. 4 He will brag and oppose everything that is holy or sacred. He will even sit in God’s temple and claim to be God. 5 Don’t you remember that I told you this while I was still with you? You already know what is holding this wicked one back until it is time for him to come. 7 His mysterious power is already at work, but someone is holding him back. And the wicked one won’t appear until that someone is out of the way. 8 Then he will appear, but the Lord Jesus will kill him simply by breathing on him. He will be completely destroyed by the Lord’s glorious return.
When the wicked one appears, Satan will pretend to work all kinds of miracles, wonders, and signs. Lost people will be fooled by his evil deeds. They could be saved, but they will refuse to love the truth and accept it. So God will make sure that they are fooled into believing a lie. All of them will be punished, because they would rather do evil than believe the truth.
We do not have time to talk on the son of perdition, false prophet and the harvest time. However, Almighty God will harvest Israel and crazy virgin. The church as a bride will be joined later by Israel and crazy virgin for the wedding day of the Lamb.
Then I heard what seemed to be a large crowd that sounded like a roaring flood and loud thunder all mixed together. They were saying,
“Praise the Lord!
Our Lord God All-Powerful
now rules as king.
So we will be glad and happy
and give him praise.
The wedding day of the Lamb
and his bride is ready.
She will be given
a wedding dress
made of pure
and shining linen.
This linen stands for
the good things
God’s people have done.”
Then the angel told me, “Put this in writing. God will bless everyone who is invited to the wedding feast of the Lamb.” The angel also said, “These things that God has said are true.”
