Seeds, Good Soil & Healing


There is a number that followed Yahusha throughout his ministry because he is the one spoken of as the scriptures put “David will never fail to have a man to sit on the throne of Israel”. (Jeremiah 33:17). That number in all its significance is twelve.

There are 12 tribes of Israel, there was 12 documented apostles, 12 gates to the royal city, 12 foundations built thereon and when it came to Yahusha's signs and miracles he showed how meaningful the number 12 meant to Jerusalem.

| The dead girl and the sick woman.

The woman with the issue of blood of 12 years was healed instantly after she touched the hem of Yahusha’s garments and the dead girl in the same chapter was 12 years old when Yahusha told her Talitha Koum! Which means “little girl, get up!” All of this is evidence of the Messiah who was prophesied to come, and it bears witness to the fulfillment of everything.

To get more understanding of these two events and why it plays such an intricate role in the healing and resurrection of Jerusalem, let's first explore the role and duty of the high priest. In Exodus 28 we find the priestly garments were given to Aaron, the Levitical high priest to wear for his consecration. The garments had the breastplate which included the 12 precious gemstones representing the tribes: Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Dan, Naphtali, Gad, Asher, Issachar, Zebulun, Joseph, and Benjamin. The garment also included the ephod, a robe, woven tunic, and a turban. These were handmade with gold, blue, purple, and scarlet yarn, and fine linen. It is at the ends of the garments that we see an addition of pomegranates made from the same yarn and gold bells that would alternate around the hem of the robe. The priest was appointed to always wear it while he was ministering.

So then, we see in the book of Mark chapter 5:21-43 the faithfulness of the Messiah’s strength and promises. Jeremiah 30:17 says, “But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds declares

Yahuah, because you are called an outcast, Zion for whom no one cares.” And verse 20 of the same chapter "Their children will be as in the days of old…established."

This woman with an ongoing issue of blood had been to many doctors and there was no cure, she was deemed an outcast in Jerusalem due to the laws of blood being unclean. And yet she reached out to touch the hem of the high priest garment and was healed instantly. Her faith is what caused her health to be restored.

There was a time in history when The Most High placed Jerusalem in exile due to their adulteries, they fell into idol worship and was shunned from his presence, as with her offspring they were the walking dead referenced in the book of Eziekiel (Valley of dry bones), because every tree begats fruit after its kind, but this punishment was only for a brief moment, again, The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob would have compassion on them. (In a surge of anger, I hid my face from you for a moment, but with everlasting kindness I will have compassion on you, Says Yahuah your redeemer.) Isaiah 54:8

The easiest way to see the Pattern is through a spiritual lens. The woman with the issue of blood represents the Old Jerusalem, the mother of the tribes, one who had not been completely purified and was still suffering from unhealed wounds, her faith had grown weary in waiting. When the woman heard of the Messiah's arrival her faith burst forth, she was empowered by the promise and went out to go and touch his garments, just as in the days of the Levitical priesthood. The details show us that this position always belonged to Adonai. He put on righteousness himself and came to dwell among men. (Isaiah 59:17 He put on righteousness as a breastplate, and the helmet of salvation on his head; he put on the garments of vengeance and wrapped himself in zeal as in a cloak"). Yahusha even questions his disciples in the same moment "who touched me?", the bells on the hem of the garment were still there spiritually and he heard the sound of deliverance- power went out from him.

This woman shows us what great faith can bring to our lives. The parable of the Sower reveals that our faith is equivalent to soil. Pomegranates are one fruit that is full of seeds and as Yahusha walked among the people ministering the miracles he was dropping seeds from his garments along the path.

Now, our soil can be hindered due to thorny bushes or rocky places put when we have good soil (faith) then our healing will be established.

The dead girl represents the emerging generation, the sons and daughters of Zion, they were in the valley and essentially had no spirit in them. Though all of this was going on, Yahuah's love is still proved true. Yahusha prophesied to the father of the dead girl, saying "Don't be afraid; just believe [and she will live]" just as the prophet Eziekiel prophesied that the dead bones would live again. This is the generation that the blood of the lamb will speak to directly, directing us to "GET UP!" and we will arise because the mouth of Yahuah has spoken.
