What Miracle Do You Need in Your Life Today?
The Lord says in the last days that he will pour out his spirit. He wants to confirm His Word in your life with signs and wonders and miracles. However this doesn’t happen accidentally.
Today I want to share with you some of the secrets and mysteries in the Bible, so you can begin to walk in the same miracle power of God that Tiz and I are walking in.
Now is the Time to Stay Strong in Faith and Be Bold
Before we get started let me say that with all the craziness that’s going on in the world; with the coronavirus, the challenges in the economy, the division and fighting and so many other challenges you need to remember that what Satan has meant for evil, God is going to use it for good. So stay strong in faith, walk in love, pray without ceasing and be a blessing whenever you can.
Now despite seeing a lot of doom and gloom in the world right now, we need to focus more on what God is saying:
‘Get ready for the greatest outpouring that the world has ever seen.’
The Lord’s promise is that ‘the glory of the latter rain is going to be greater than the former rain.’ (Haggai 2:9) The rain God is sending is a spiritual rain of wisdom, knowledge, anointing and power. It’s also a financial rain of abundance, favor, prosperity and blessing.
God is a Miracle Working God
In over 40 years of ministry, Tiz and I have always believed that. We have always seen tremendous miracles and God has always done tremendous things. We’ve seen so many people receive miracles: healing miracles, financial miracles and family miracles. We’ve always believed God is a miracle-working God.
My life is a miracle. Before I gave my life to the Lord, I was a heroin addict and a cocaine addict. I was bound by addiction and also bound by the spirit of anger. But by the grace of God and His great power, the Lord totally delivered me and set me free. My sins were forgiven and every family curse was broken.
I Want to Share Our Two Amazing Miracles with You
More recently my family has received two incredible healing miracles. If you’ve been following our ministry on TV, stream or social media, you know that in the last two years, our grandson, Lion was diagnosed with incurable leukemia.
The doctors told us that they have never seen a child with his kind of sickness survive. But through prayer, faith and trusting in God for a miracle healing, the Lord supernaturally intervened and did something that no one had ever heard of. He gave him a gene in his body that there is no medical history of a child his age having. And because of this, he is now, two years later, totally out of treatment and cancer-free.
There is No One Like Our God
Then about a year ago Tiz got sick. She was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. And although we love doctors and the care they bring, they didn’t bring a good report. They were sure she had a gene with cancer that would prevent her recovery. When they tested her they came back stunned and said, “You don’t have this gene.” The main doctor couldn’t believe it and said, “You’ve got to have it. There’s no other explanation.”
If true this meant that not only would she get sick again, but it would pass on to all of our kids. So they ended up testing her again and came back shocked. They said, “We can’t explain it, but it’s not there.” The doctor still couldn’t believe it but one of the medical staff whispered to us “that only He could do this. It’s a miracle!” Isn’t that amazing! We serve a mighty God, amen!
God Wants to Do a Miracle For You Today
So we declare in the name of Jesus, not only will Tiz not get sick again, our kids don’t have to worry about it. Our grandkids don’t have to worry about it. And we can literally say to you that whatever you need, whether it’s a healing miracle, whether it’s a miracle in your marriage, whether it’s with your children being saved, whether it’s a miracle in your finances, we can literally tell you, not just because we’ve read it, but because we have lived it these last two years, God wants to do something for you, a miracle for you that no one has ever heard of or seen before.
Receive that into your spirt today as a prophetic word. Let a spirit of faith and expectation arise within you. Begin to thank the Lord right now, even before you see the full manifestation of His miracle-working power. Refuse to look at the wind, the waves and the storm. Keep your eyes on Jesus and the promises of God. Keep fighting the good fight of faith and stay strong in the Lord because God loves you. He cares about you. He sees where you’re at right now. And not only does He see, but He cares and He has already worked out the solution for you.
God Sees and Cares about Every Detail of Your Life
It’s no coincidence you’re reading this today. God has set you up to hear what he’s done for us so that he can do that for you. One of my favorite teachings from ancient Jewish wisdom is that if you see or hear of a miracle in someone else’s life then you’re right in line to be next. Christians say it this way – “God is no respecter of persons.” (Acts 10:34)
Whether you need a physical healing, financial healing, marriage healing, family healing, whatever it is, you’re going to walk away after reading this feeling inspired, encouraged and strengthened. We’re going to help you tap into some of the ancient mysteries and secrets of the Bible, so that you can walk into your miracle. Again, ancient Jewish wisdom says, “When you see or hear of it in somebody else’s life, it’s because God wants you to be next.”
Reach Out to Jesus and Receive Your Miracle
One of the greatest secrets from the Bible concerning healing and miracles is about the woman with the issue of blood. This is the woman we read about in Mark 5 that spent all she had on doctors for 12 years without any success. And then, she saw Jesus! (see also Matthew 9:20-22, Luke 8:43-48)
What happened next is one of the mysteries of the Bible. It released a miracle healing in her life. As she put her eyes on Jesus she said something amazing, “If I could touch the hem of his garment, I know that I would be made whole.”
Most Christians don’t fully understand why she said this but there’s a mystery hidden here that contributed to her miracle. The word translated ‘hem’ is the word ‘kraspedon’ and it means a tassel of twisted wool. This scripture could just as well read; ‘If I could touch the tassel of twisted wool, I know that I would be made whole.’
The Mysteries and Secrets of the Jewish Prayer Shawl
Let me explain this. In Deuteronomy 22:1, a commandment given to God’s people is, you shall make tassels on the four corners of your clothing which you cover yourself with. One of the commandments to receive the blessing of God was you’ll have a garment that covers you, it’ll have four corners and on the four corners, it will have a hem or what is called a tassel of twisted wool.
Now go with me to Luke 8:43 where we find the same miracle story, but it’s said a little bit different.
43 Now a woman, having a flow of blood for twelve years, who had spent all her livelihood on physicians and could not be healed by any, 44 came from behind and touched the border of His garment. And immediately her flow of blood stopped.
45 And Jesus said, “Who touched Me?” When all denied it, Peter and those with him said, “Master, the multitudes throng and press You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’ ”
46 But Jesus said, “Somebody touched Me, for I perceived power going out from Me.” 47 Now when the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling; and falling down before Him, she declared to Him in the presence of all the people the reason she had touched Him and how she was healed immediately.
48 And He said to her, “Daughter, be of good cheer; your faith has made you well. Go in peace.”
The first scripture says, your tassel of wool has made you well, or by touching the hem. In this one it says she touched the border of his garment and was made well. In Numbers 15:37-48, the Lord tells Moses, “and he said, tell them to make tassels on the corner of their garments throughout their generation, on the corner or the hem of the tallit are those tassels of woven wool.”
God’s Healing and Protection in the Wings of the Tallit
Most Christians have never learned this but these tassels represent the 613 commandments of God given to Israel at Mt. Sinai. They were given as a sign that the Lord would always protect us, lead us, guide us and teach us.
So when the woman touched the hem or border of Jesus’ garment it definitely isn’t talking about a Roman or Arab robe. As a Jewish Rabbi, the Lord would have been definitely been wearing a Jewish prayer shawl called a Tallit. This garment was literally developed by the commandment of God and Jesus would certainly have been following it Himself. And because Jesus was absolutely committed to the teachings of God, these teachings became alive and brought miracle power with it.
Now let’s go a bit further. The word border or corner or hem in Hebrew is the word wings. So, it’s not just the corner, it’s not just the hem, it’s not just the border, but these four corners that attach the promise of God are called ‘wings’ in Hebrew. So when Jesus put on his prayer shawl, he put on the four wings connected to the power and the promise of God.
Then when this woman saw Jesus, as a Jewish woman seeing a Jewish Jesus wearing the prayer shawl, she knew by the spirit of God and by the promises of God, that if she could touch the hem, the border or the wing of His garment she was actually touching the living Word of God. She recognized that Jesus was the Messiah, He would make this Word come alive and she would finally get the miracle that she’s been looking for.
Now there’s a powerful biblical reason she would know this. Malachi prophesying on the coming of the Messiah said, when He comes, this Jewish Messiah will bring ‘healing in his wings.’ This is speaking about the Tallit.
You Are Covered in All the Promises of God
Do you mean to tell me, Pastor Larry, that if we obey God’s Word and we wear a Tallit, which represent the promises of God, that the Word of God and the Messiah will bring ‘healing in his wings?’ Let me ask you something:
- Is there any truth that when we anoint people with oil they’ll be healed?
- Is there any truth to putting a guard on your mouth for there’s life and death in the power of your tongue?
- Is there any truth we should rejoice in the Lord because God inhabits the praises of his people?
- Is there any truth that when we give our tithes and our offerings, God will give back to us good measure, pressed down, shaken together and overflowing?
- Is there any truth that when we lay hands on the sick they will recover?
The Bible says that when the Messiah comes, He will come with healing in His wings. This is why the woman said, ‘if I could touch the hem, if I could touch the border, if I could touch the wing of His garment I will be healed.’
She knew what you need to know: that when the Messiah came, he came not as a Gentile, but as a Jewish Messiah to make the Word of God come alive and to graft us into the covenant power of God. He came with ‘healing in his wings.’
Expect Something Powerful and supernatural to Happen Today
It’s not just an analogy, it’s prophetic. Israel knew and understood by the teachings of Moses, take my word in the form of tassels of twisted wool, put them on the corners of your garment, cover yourself as you pray and something supernatural would happen. They also knew that one day the Messiah would come, he would take the 613 promises of God and turn that written word (logos) into a living word (rhema).
I can’t help but think that there are many good people today that, like this woman, have tried everything.
- How many have tried everything to prosper?
- How many have tried everything to get delivered from drugs?
- How many have tried everything to draw your kids back to Jesus?
- How many have tried everything to get healed but continue to suffer?
Do You Need a Shelter from the Storms of Life?
The first thing we did when we heard about Lion, the first thing we did when we heard about Tiz, is we went under our tallit in prayer. Psalm 91:1 teaches to do this and calls it “the secret place.” “He who dwells in the secret place of the most high shall abide under the shadow of the almighty.”
Jesus said the same thing: “But you, when you pray, go into your closet or into your room, and when you have shut the door, pray to your father who is in the secret place. And your father who sees you in the secret place will reward you openly.” Matthew 6:6
If we don’t understand the Jewish roots of the teachings of Jewish Jesus, we don’t understand what any of this actually means. When you put on the tallit you’re entering into a secret place of healing…a secret place of protection …and a secret place of shelter against the attacks of the enemy.
You Have a New Weapon to Fight the Enemy
As Christians we need to understand spiritual warfare. God says the weapons of our warfare, they’re not carnal. (2 Corinthians 10:4-6) He says we don’t battle with flesh and blood. But we do battle with principalities and powers and rulers of darkness. (Ephesians 6)
The battle with leukemia, the battle with ovarian cancer, the battle with your marriage, your home, is actually a battle with Satan. But God has given us weapons for our warfare….and that includes the prayer garment – the Tallit.
There’s so much more to teach on this. I encourage you to send for the Healing in His Wings CD. There are two life-changing sermons that will teach you this revelation in depth. It really is a game-changer and your prayer life will never be the same.
Before we finish things up today I want to pray for you. Come into agreement with me and let the Lord touch you with His power and promises:
Father, you said whatever we bind on earth will be bound in heaven. Father, I bind the spirit of infirmity. I bind cancer. I bind divorce. I bind financial problems. I bind debt. I bind sickness in every way. And we loosen the promises, power and blessing of God in the name that is above every name…in the name of Jesus. Amen.
Now let me give you one more thing that will make a real difference. The Bible says, ‘Charity saves us from death.’ (Proverbs 10:2, 11:4) There’s something supernatural about being a blessing. It opens the door for God to bring you blessing. So if you need God to bless you, God’s promise is that your charitable giving will open the door to miracles.
Today your gift small or large will help save lives in Israel. And as you give to save someone else’s life God promises your charity will save you.
Right now we’re working with Magen David Adom to raise funds to purchase our 6th ambulance – a mobile ICU that’s like a hospital on wheels. MDA is similar to our American Red Cross and this highly specialized unit will answer over 10,000 emergency calls in its lifetime. Your gift of support will definitely save lives, and don’t you know God will use this charitable offering to one day supernaturally intervene for you.
So stand with us in our support of Israel and the Jewish people and activate the law of sowing and reaping. God is about to do miracles in your life as you do miracles in the lives of others. Thank you for spending some of your day with us today…and thank you for your prayers and support.
