Matthew 9:20-22, Mark 5:26-34, Luke 8:43-48

"And a woman who had been suffering from a hemorrhage for twelve years, came up behind Him and touched the fringe of His cloak; for she was saying to herself, "If I only touch His garment, I will get well." But Jesus turning and seeing her said, "Daughter, take courage; your faith has made you well." At once the woman was made well".

“I find this passage extraordinary. It is the best passage to demonstrate the transference of the anointing. Anointing is tangible, transferable and can be conducted like electricity. It can flow out of our hands, it can flow through our words, it can super-charge handkerchiefs, Jesus’ clothing, Elijah’s clothing – he threw that coat over Elisha and Elisha got a transference of power and doubled the anointing from then on. He then went to an open grave and his body rotted till his bones of the prophet were there. Then some people dropped a corpse into the tomb of Elisha and when it touched his dead bones, the body was raised from the dead because there was so much power in the bones of Elisha. We see this throughout Scripture – there is so many examples”.
