hands, anointing oil and prayer
Two faith healings have stuck in
this writer's memory over the years. Both of these healings
occurred while he was still pastor of a denomination church.
The two Healing Delivery Vehicles used were "the laying on
of hands" and the "anointing with oil accompanied with
These two healings occurred in a revival meeting we led in a
denomination church in East Texas. He had felt impressed to
have a time of healing ministry for a few nights, but held
off on it because those dear people were denominational and
were not strong believers in healing. After asking the
pastor what he thought about it, he said, “Go for it. Have a
healing time during the next service.” So we did.
That night, twenty two people came to the front where the
pastor had set up a healing line. Most of them were healed
right on the spot, right then and there.
Here are the descriptions of the two healings that really
stand out in this writer's memory. First, an elderly man who
had diabetes came for healing. He was seventy two years old
at the time. He was healed of his diabetes then and there.
Touching base with the pastor years later, he said that this
elderly man had never taken another injection of insulin to
The second healing, still vividly remembered, involved a
little girl about three years old. She had some kind of
seizures. These terrible seizures gave her a dangerously
high fever. Then she would pass out.
He dad brought her to the healing line holding her in his
arms. She had passed out from the seizure and its resulting
She too was healed that same night, although we could tell
no difference in her at the time. Her dad carried her from
the building that night, still in his arms and still passed
out from the seizure and fever.
By the next morning, however, her fever was gone. A year or
two later, we asked the pastor about her. He said that she
had no more seizures. She was wonderfully, completely healed
that night. All her dad did was bring her down for prayer
and anointing. He brought her to the Great Physician.
Now look at the two Healing Delivery Vehicles used in these
healings and the Scriptures that support them. First, we
look at "the laying on of hands" for healing.
18...they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall
We did this (the laying on of hands) and people recovered.
Anyone who is a believer in Christ can do this very thing
and get healing results. This is not the exclusive activity
of preachers, pastors and theologians. This is for any
believer in Christ. You can do this as well as this writer
or anyone else. Next we look at the "anointing with oil
accompanied with prayer by the elders."
14Is 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:
15And 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. (KJV)
In this meeting, the pastor assembled those he considered
"the elders." The congregation had been instructed that "the
elders," along with himself and this writer, would be at the
front to minister healing by "anointing with oil and prayer"
according to these Scriptures. They would also minister
healing by the "laying on of hands."
As the people came forward, these two Healing Delivery
Vehicles were put into use. Then the healings began in
response to these acts of faith performed by all who worked
the front that night.
Learn this! These two Healing Delivery Vehicles deliver the
goods. If you need healing, study these two Scriptures and
put them into practice. This is the Bible way of faith
healing. Put them into practice. They work for us when we
