"The Virgin Mary appeared to me and healed me of my illness!" So said the Catholic friend to a brother in this ministry. Stunned by his friend's claim, he asked me for some counsel on how to approach people who make such claims.
Whether it is experience of the supernatural or healings such as this, it is very difficult to comment on the fact of the event for both the supernatural exists in all its various forms - good and evil - and healing can and does take place through all kinds of different media, both natural and supernatural. How do you judge such an experience? With great care for it is hard to know exactly ahat the causes of healing are which may be from an entirely different source (mistaken accreditation), it may be be accompomplished using natural or psychic resources released and directed through faith, or it may be a complete illusion. There are many who claim healing only to revert to their former sickness again.
It is not for me to comment on unaccounted healings such as this. It is easy to decry it so rather than do that I thought I would examine the claim that the Virgin Mary was the author of the healing. Could the late Miriyam, mother of Yah'shua (Jesus), be the source of supernatural healing today? What does the Bible say about such a thing?
Firstly, the Bible nowhere states, suggests or even hints that Mary the mother of Yah'shua (Jesus) had a supernatural origin different from any other human being. She was the fruit of a natural (not a supernatural) union between her father Heli of the tribe of Judah and her unnamed mother (Lk.3:23), which tradition identifies as one called Anna. Anna's sister, Elizabeth, was the mother of John the Baptist, making Elizabeth Mary's cousin. This would make Anna of the tribe of Levi (Lk.1:5,36).
The virtue and purity of Miriyam (Mary) is undisputed. You can read the detailed study of this remarkable woman in my article, The New Covenant and the Virgin Mary. In it I point out that Mary could not have been immaculately conceived, as the Church of Rome claims, because she performed the required Levitical ordinances of all sinners:
Though Catholics claim that she is the 'Mother of God' and the mediator (Mediatrix) between man and Christ , this assertion is directly contradicted by the Davar (Word) which says the only mediator between man and Elohim (God) is Messiah Yah'shua (Jesus) (1 Tim.2:5). Furthermore, she is included in the rest of humanity as a creation of Messiah (Jn.1:3) and that Messiah lived long before she did (Jn.1:1-2). This being indisputably true, how can a creature (someone who is created) be the mother of the Creator? In any spiritual sense, she cannot, so she absolutely cannot be the 'mother of Elohim (God)' - the most that can be claimed for her is that she supplied the physical material that was used by Yahweh to form the physical body of Yah'shua (Jesus). Her involvement in the generation of His Ruach (Spirit) or essential Being was zero.
"Wonderful example of womanhood though Mary was, she was still a sinner like the rest of humanity is proved in the Scriptures. She admitted that she was in need of a Saviour, and so in obedience to this she brought her sin offering (Lev.12:6-8) of two turtledoves to the temple, like all Jewish mothers (Luke 2:21-24). Thus she is included in the rest of the human race when Paul said: "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of Elohim (God)" (Rom.3:23, AV)."
This being the indisputable case, are there scriptural grounds for calling upon dead human beings for healing or for any other kind of blessing or ministration? Quite the contrary, such activity is strictly forbidden by the Torah. These things are to be sought from Elohim (God) and Elohim (God) alone of which Mary has no part. We are therefore forced to conclude that anyone either manifesting themselves as 'Mary' or administering healing is not the Virgin Mary but an imposter imparting a false healing, that is, a healing (if it is actually real) that will have serious spiritual consequences for the one accepting it.
Healing is not evidence necessarily of the work of Elohim (God). There are multiple possible sources from natural healing to the supernatural, of neutral, evil or good origins. Healing from evil sources, particularly those pretending to be good, can and do put souls into bondage, reinforcing demonic strongmen established upon believing in lies.
Should we care? Absolutely. If I am in terrible debt and if both a crook offers me a loan and someone who loves me from (say) my own family, which would be the wisest offer to accept? Crooks never make loans unless they can extort or gain some personal advantage. Similarly, it matters where our healing comes from, for whereas healing from Yahweh is free, healing from Satan (in whatever disguise) comes always at a terrible price.
No, the Virgin Mary has healed no one. All manifestations claiming to be her are false and must be challenged in the Name of Yah'shua (Jesus) and then denounced. Seeking divine healing from the Divine Physician and from no one else!
 There are strong moves within the Catholic Church to get her elevated even more as Co-redemptrix or 'Co-Redeemer' with Christ. Needless to say there is not so much as a whisper of this possibility in sacred Scripture and such a belief was never entertained by the first believers. It is rank heresy and blasphemy.
