Hands On Prayer/Oil Anointing
Written By Betty Bolden.
In Luke 4:40, right at the start of Jesus’ ministry, we are told that: “When the sun was setting, the people brought to Jesus all who had various kinds of sickness, and laying his hands on each one, he healed them.” Check it out above, oh wow praise God Jesus layed His wonderful hands on various kinds of sickness and healed them.. Also Moses layed hands on Deuteronomy 34:9 (KJV) 9And Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom; for Moses had laid his hands upon him: and the children of Israel hearkened unto him, and did as the LORD commanded Moses.
Then, in Luke 13:12 we are told how there was a woman in the synagogue who had been bent double by a spirit of infirmity for 18 years and “When Jesus saw her, he called her forward and said to her, ‘Woman, you are set free from your infirmity.’ Then he put his hands on her, and immediately she straightened up and praised God.” Read Mark 8:22 it's amazing. The touch of Jesus brought healing … it even brought the dead back to life. Read Matthew 19:13 Important read Mark 16 it will explain it all..Praise God..
Since I have been saved, I have always believed what God says in His Word. What I don't understand is why people and pastor's and I'm not pointing fingers..don't follow His Word as He has taught. I have asked many about this in churches and to others that are in ministry. Below is proof that Jesus Himself was anointed and He tells us to call the elders of the church to pray over us when we are sick and anoint with oil. We are to practice and do what it says in His Word, and if you look at the scripture it will tell you what they did and what we are to do.
Nobody can deny the truth He has put in His Word. It's right there in black and white or red..Jesus' words are sometimes spoken in red, in some bibles. How can someone in the Lord not believe what is Written in His Word..
James 5: 14 Is any sick among you?
Let him call for the elders of the church and let them pray over him anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: It was Mary who anointed the Lord with fragrant oil and wiped His feet with her hair whose brother Lazarus was sick.
Mark 6:12-14 King James Version (KJV) 12 And they went out and preached that men should repent. 13 And they cast out many devils and anointed with oil many that were sick and healed them. 14 And king Herod heard of him(for his name was spread abroad:) and he said That John the Baptist was risen from the dead and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him.
Luke 7:46 My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment. James 5:13-15 King James Version (KJV) 13 Is any among you afflicted? Let him pray. Is any merry? Let him sing psalms. 14 Is any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church and let them pray over him anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: 15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick and the Lord shall raise him up and if he have committed sins they shall be forgiven him.
