The daughter of Jairus and the flow.
Basic text: "And a woman who had an issue of blood twelve years, and spent on doctors all his possessions, and neither could be healed, Luke 8:43," "I had an only daughter, almost twelve years, and she was dying. And he went, pressed it to the crowd. Luke 8:42 "
This is one of the most famous texts of the Holy Bible, read and preached in all the evangelical churches in the world, it comes to healing and resurrection. But I understand that God through the Holy Spirit wants to tell us something new.
Let us understand what the Holy Spirit wants to talk!
For Twelve Years?
Jairus' daughter was 12 when he was resurrected, and the woman was healed flow with twelve years of illness. There are many references about the number twelve in the Bible eg The breastplate of the priest was 12 pedras.O altar erected after Jordan had 12 pedras.Os disciples were 12.As holy city gates are 12. The tree of life gives 12 fruits .
For the woman who suffered from bleeding, twelve, were the twelve tribes of Judah base Israel.Mas nation for the daughter of Jairus, the twelve years are the twelve apostles, parents of Christ's church.
On the day Jairus' daughter was born, the woman began bleeding in the moment in which the woman was healed, the girl died.
All this points to perfection, fullness, something complete, the time the woman had staunched his blood flow, had arrived, and the daughter of Jairus die and rise time had come, his years had been completed!
Woman means Church! In Revelation we see the dragon (Satan) being released into the ground and pursuing the woman (church), where Jesus Christ would be born (son of man) "And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. Revelation 24:13 "
On the way to Jairus' daughter's resurrection was the blood flow woman!
The woman Flow: This woman means a church!
In this case a church that poured blood and yet still filthy. "It is impossible for the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins." (Hebrews 10: 4) Even the people of Israel offering continual sacrifice, bleeding every day still was unclean in the eyes of the Master, as the woman was unclean in the eyes of the law, and the law, an expression of God's will.
A church that also twelve years that poured blood, in the context the weather was full time bleeding was complete, ("And behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth did quake, and ripped -if such stones, "Matthew 27: 51)
He had reached the end of that woman suffering from bleeding, and also the end of the church bleeding. "For the children of Israel may bring their sacrifices, which offer in the open field, bring them to the Lord, the congregation from the tent door, the priest, and offer them for peace offerings to the Lord." (Leviticus 17: 5)
Yet this woman had tried to solve their problems with human solutions. (And spent on physicians all her living, and neither could be healed).
The living and active Word brings, not by chance this detail that the woman (church) had spent all their money, time, energy in human resources to be clean and cured, but it can not be cleaned, every human effort is useless for salvation Man, just when the church bells in Jesus is that it can be delivered, healed and clean.
Humanly impossible as it was told the rich young man who fulfilled all the law even shed blood to be saved and Jesus told him: ("But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible "Matthew 19: 26). But for God nothing is impossible, for salvation is of the Lord design.
Salvation by human effort is impossible, and the woman had exhausted their resources and then touched Jesus.Ao play with faith, was healed and also saved by faith. "Your faith has saved you; . go in peace "(." For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God "Ephesians 2: 8)
He played in robes, and went virtue. According to the same law is an unclean woman to touch someone in the day they were bleeding to touch it would be filthy also. The situation of women when asked if touched Jesus was delicate, so much feared, was playing in a holy man, and breaking a rule of law before many. ("And if a woman have an issue, and your blood flow is in suacarne, will be seven days in her separation, and whoever touches shall be unclean until the even." (Leviticus 15: 19)
There was something about that woman (church) did not know that by touching Jesus no matter how sinful you are, or what crime he has committed, to touch it with faith, rather he become contaminated with impurities, is the impure that taken from holiness, as the light it is much more powerful than darkness.
Jesus did not gave him the old church system in face, but broke the system and do not expos will purification, but spoke to her and released her, and healed her and through their faith, and touch the skirt. ("For God, who said of darkness shine the light, hath shined in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ." II Corinthians 4: 6)
The distinctive ring of women in the rest of the crowd speaks of a particularly touching Jesus church in a way that leaves virtue, I see a large crowd touching Jesus crying out for him, putting his name on the board and uttering words for Jesus and his disciples even say (Master, the multitude thronging thee, and thee, and sayest thou: Who touched me?) the crowd presses and oppresses the Lord and among them is a church that plays with power!
Another time Jesus said, ("Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven!" (Matt. 7: 21) I see a great crowd saying!.!. Lord And he sometimes feels overwhelmed because Spiritualists say Lord But talk of reincarnation Mormons say Lord But talk of another revelation Jehovah's Witnesses say Lord but deny the gifts of the Spirit.
But the master did not want to be overwhelmed, he is looking for a church, a person in a church, who has been playing in faith with fear, someone who is in need of a miracle to play skirt virtue. Someone who plays in the Lord and not overwhelm. I see Jesus talking to Nicodemus just before the book of John.
Nicodemus was like Jairo, one of the synagogue and differently Jesus says the same thing: "I look for who touch me differently," Nicodemus did not understand that the church had to die and be born again, the woman had to cease the old worship and the girl had to be resurrected. "Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, I say to you man be born again, he can not see the kingdom of God. John 3: 3 "
Jesus said, Nicodemus change were to touch me, do not overwhelm me, but, look me in spirit and truth, for I'm looking for you Nicodemus. ("But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him." (John 4: 23)
I could not hide.
After the woman touched Jesus was healed and she can no longer hide, "Matthew 5: 14 Ye are the light of the world; You can not hide a city built on ummonte ".As someone touches Jesus, and her life is changed can no longer hide when a life is full of God's presence, should become a reference for outras.Não hide if you have touched Jesus, announces its word!
Jairus' Daughter! This girl can be seen in two ways with different meanings is one of Jairus' daughter and another girl Ressurreta.
1) Jairus' Daughter We know that every daughter or son looks like the father in this context, we see a Jairo ruler of the synagogue, practicing the rites judaicos.A girl and daughter of Jairus, and he being ruler of the synagogue, so the girl would be Jewish law will obedient and totally submissive to the old law. Jairo means the old religious system, the old way of reaching out to God. Jairo had an order to create his daughter throughout the law. ("And you shall teach them to your children Talk about them when you sit in your house and walking pelocaminho, and pouring you and raising you." Deuteronomy 6: 7)
2) Girl Ressurreta In this context girl is a young church, a church that was born to twelve years, maturity of time if it considers these years as a time of fullness, the church girl, was just in time to die and rise again in a figure Christ, as Paul told us resemble him in his death and resurrection (Rom 6: 5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also of his resurrection;)! So the girl had to die to not get stuck to Jewish rites and reborn in a new church, girl death means death rites to reach God.
By touching the dead girl Jesus was contrary elsewhere in the law of Moses. "He who touches the dead body of any man, thou unclean serásete days. Numbers 19:11 "Jesus is above the Jewish rites, and was now operating by the law of the Spirit and not by the letter of lei.Certamente, Jairo who was Jewish leader knew that by touching her daughter, the Messiah should be considered impuro.Mas Jesus is life, if he touches a corpse certainly this viverá.Se Jesus touch your dead projects it will rise!
The girl means the continuity of the Jewish system of worship. If the girl did not die, and Jairus' daughter, judaism leader, certainly a new church could not have arisen. Jairo to see the messiah touch his dead daughter, and seeing her coming back to life, certainly he understood that Judaism was dying with his daughter and a new church based on the resurrection was raising with that girl.
The girl is dead! This phrase has been leaked a lot and unfortunately even in the pulpits. I've even seen in cults with visitors, be said such a thing and indeed sometimes the girl goes through difficult situations, but when this happens, and someone pronounce the death of his church, know that Jesus is ready to resurrect his church. Leaves out the one who has no commitment to the work. We can not act as Jairus' relatives, who said they did not bother the master.
But I say it's time to take the church fathers, that is, the leadership and people of faith and trust that are not speaking ill of the church's time to get to Peter, James and John, three large men and church leaders and go after Jesus, and go after milagre.Ir behind the miracle in the life of your church is not the time to cry and say the girl is dead it is time to seek Jesus with all his strength until he says and raises Church.
Then everyone will admire and rejoice. It's time to say: Church walks because it already has twelve years it is time the fullness of church life, and feed the girl that he die, he commanded to give her meat is time to feed the girl we feed the church to grow and learn, food to live more and more.The food is the word of God, a church fed on the word will never die!
Let's remember Jesus in the desert. Matthew 4: 4 But he answered and said, It is written: Not by bread alone doth man live, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. "
Talita !! It is necessary to state that the language of the New Testament is Greek, the evangelist Mark, who seconverte after the ascension of Jesus. The young John Mark accompanied Paul and Barnabas, but in Perge, decided to return to Jerusalem, a fact that must have caused great disappointment to Paul (Acts 15:38) .And then around the year 60 AD He wrote the Gospel of St. Mark, in Greek language often used at the time and understood in all the cities where he was a Christian and churches.
So one wonders why this evangelist narrates the following verse, "And taking the damsel by the hand and said to her, Talitha cumi, which being interpreted is, Little girl, I say to you, arise." (Mark 5:41) in Aramaic?
The evangelist is emphasizing the language that Jesus spoke, because he was a Jew and spoke to a Jewish girl raised by a faithful Jew, a follower of all Jewish culture. And still only other time the author uses an expression of the local language, this time Hebrew, see: Mk 15,54 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? Which being interpreted is, my God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
Soon we are led to contemplate the greatness of God's word and that word is said by chance, I believe that at death and resurrection of the girl who was Hebrew, Mark was referring readers to the Calvary scene where he uses the Jesus' words in language that only their countrymen understood it.
The church that was born of Jewish resurrection is the cross of the church from the Jews but for all mankind, so we see a connection between Jesus 'death and the death of Jairus' daughter a clear evidence of allegory that Jesus was doing and Marcos made matter of portraying so
The church as a young man coming of originated resurrection of the Jews, a people chosen by God and thus fulfilling the promise to Abraham that his children would be as the stars, "Gen. 22.17 What will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of heaven and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies. "
Thus, we conclude that God was making this clear message that we might believe in the immense his plan for the salvation of his people! Jesus was saying that the Jewish rites were for a time, and memento of the end of the sacrifices of animals there arose a new church that is growing today, a church based on the resurrection, and faith.
God bless you with his immense grace in Christ Jesus !!
