Pastor Tony’s Message: The Woman with the Issue of Blood

The “woman with the issue of blood” came to Jesus after she had exhausted all of her other options. Why can’t we come to Jesus before things get rough?

You have to come to the place that you seek God when there is a need, but our lives would be radically different if we would seek him just to know Him, before a need arises.

So Jesus went with him, and a large crowd was following and pressing against Him.

Mark 5:24

Jesus never caters to the “crowd” (the mob). The woman with an issue of blood was labeled unclean under the Law. The Law had no power to clean her; it only set her to the side and kept her in a place of rejection until she could be something other than “unclean,” but neither she nor the Law had any ability to provide cleansing.

At once Jesus realized in Himself that power had gone out from Him. He turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched My robes?”

Mark 5:30

Why did Jesus ask, “Who touched my robes?” It’s my opinion that He asked “why” because He wanted to see how bad she wanted Him. He wanted her to see that her need for Him was greater than her desperation for healing.
