Healed using hands,
anointing oil and prayer

              Healed using 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 prayer."

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 that time.

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 fever.

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.

Mark 16:18
18...they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. (KJV)

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."

James 5:14-15
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 work them.
