KEY SCRIPTURE: Acts 19:12 “So that from his body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them”.
The next means of receiving healing is through tokens. A token is a physical or tangible representative of a fact, quality or feeling (Oxford dictionary).In these instances the tokens represent the power of God.
Throughout the Bible God has been working through his servants using various tokens to manifest His power and to administer healing to the sick.
In 2nd Kings 5:14, Naaman the Military General of Syria was healed of leprosy by bathing in the river Jordan. This is using water as a means by which the Holy Spirit ministered healing.
The Lord Jesus in John 9:6, spat on the ground and made clay of the spittle, anointing the eye of a blind man with it. He asked Him to go and wash in the pool of Siloam. After which he came back seeing. The Lord used the spittle with the sand as a means by which the Holy Spirit healed the sick man. The anointing oil is also one of the tokens that healing is administered. Mark 6:13. “And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them”. In this instant, Jesus disciples went preaching across the town. They anointed many who were sick and they were made whole.
Another token is the handkerchief or dresses of men of God called mantles in some moments. Acts 19:12 reads “So that from His body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons and the diseases departed from them and the evil spirits went out of them”.
A man once came to me and told me his father was in a critical condition at the hospital. I took an handkerchief prayed over it and asked him to go and place it on his father in Jesus name. He did just that and by the next day the man was discharged.
These tokens have been used over the years to bring wholeness to a number of people. How do you receive your healing through these tokens?
A token is a representation of the Holy Spirit power. It becomes a point of contact for one’s faith to be released.
As you apply the handkerchief, water or the olive oil, you trust in the power of God to go into operation in the name of Jesus. The token is not the power but God’s power resides on it as the man of God prayed upon it, releasing God’s Power to rest on it.
Put your faith in the Lord Jesus acknowledging that it is His power that is working through that token.
Note: Don’t make a fetish out of the token. It is a representation of the real thing.
“In the name of my Lord Jesus, God’s power is always released as I apply this token in this condition, in Jesus name”.
Mark 5:27-28 ” When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment. For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole”.
