In the last few statements of the Old Testament, a powerful prophecy is given about Jesus Christ.
"But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall." (Malachi 4:2).
* Now I feel compelled to take this opportunity to mention that you get the accurate prophecy about Jesus Christ if you are reading the King James Version Bible, which is based upon what is called the "Textus Receptus". If you are reading something else, such as the NIV: New International Version, you get a corrupted "translation". It lowercases the word "sun", specifically denies Jesus by changing the word "his" to "its", and removing one of the keys to the prophecy by changing the word "wings" to "rays": "But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its rays." (NIV).
Back to the truth: "But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings..." (KJV).
Moving ahead into the new testament (which comes next after this prophecy in Malachi), Jesus Christ our Lord God is born, and has grown up and started his ministry of truth. He is the leader of the Jews, the founder of Christianity.
There is a garment that is known as the "Tallit". The dictionary defines it as: "a shawllike garment of wool, silk, or the like, with fringes, or zizith, at the four corners..." It's known to many Christians in modern times as the "prayer shawl". It is a very important thing to the Jewish people (as well as many Christians). It was given to the people by God through Moses. The corners of the shawl are also known as "wings".
"And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any, Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched. And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me. And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately.And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace." (Luke 8:43-48).
This woman touched the "border of his garment". It is believed that she touched the "wings" of his Tallit, in faith that if he was the Messiah as spoken of by the prophet Malachi, he would then have "healing in his wings". Surely her faith and understanding of the prophecy was so powerful, that it even amazed Jesus! "Who touched me?" he says! He says he felt "virtue" go out of him into who touched him. The word "virtue" is defined as "moral excellence; goodness; righteousness" and "effective force; power or potency". Jesus says: "Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace".
Jesus truly is the fulfillment of all prophecies about the Messiah. And now, in our present day, the prophecies that he gave us about the end times are being fulfilled as truth. Praise God for repentance and the most important step in life: SALVATION, because the door is closing soon!
