Jesus was speaking to His disciples. He said who touched My clothes? Let us study the word of God together in Mark 5: 25-28.
And a certain who who had an issued of blood twelve years, and had suffered many things under many physicians, and had heard of Jesus, came up behind Him in the crowd and touched His garment; for she said, "if I may touch only His clothes, I shall be whole,"
The woman was an ordinary person like you.She suffered from hermorrage blood disorder or you may call it issue of blood, this disease is one of the worst infection human suffer on earth, most especially women; for someone to be suffering from that disease; bleading out blood everyday, not a day or a week but always and I know that this woman must be very rich to have visited many physician, not one but the Bible says many physician. Upon all, they failed her but she continue to suffered from the deadly disease.
For twelve solid years, (twelve years is a long years), she went all over the place looking for solution of her problem but every attempt failed but in one day, her destiny transformed by the power of God. That day Jesus of Nazareth was passing by, Jesus did not go to her or invited her for altar call. The Bible says, she reach for her healing. She conceived her healing and determine in faith that "if I may touch His clothes Ishall be whole."
There are a lot of people gathered around Jesus, his disciples were there and so many people want to see him, some people wants to gossip about him. Who is this Jesus? What did He want here? They don't know it's a free world and everybody can pass anytime. This woman did not bother about anybody but between her and her savior. She reached out to touch Jesus clothes and instant miracle take place and the fontain of her blood dried up. What a blessed miracle?
Jesus knew something had happened to someone and someone had been delievered from bondage because he has insight. He told his disciples who touch my clothes? One of the disciples said, master so many people are gathered here pushing ourselver back and forth and you said who touch you? (His disciples would have make him a liar) Jesus knew virtue came out of Him that someone has just being delievered from the power of darkness.
When Jesus turned around to see the person, the woman knew what has just happen; she came to meet Jesus and told Him the truth, I was delieverd from twelve (12) years issue of blood. Jesus said to her, "Daughter thy faith hath made thee whole. Go in peace, and be whole of thy plague."
