Wesley's Notes for James 5:14

5:14 Having anointed him with oil - This single conspicuous gift, which Christ committed to his apostles, #Mark 6:13|, remained in the church long after the other miraculous gifts were withdrawn. Indeed, it seems to have been designed to remain always; and St. James directs the elders, who were the most, if not the only, gifted men, to administer at. This was the whole process of physic in the Christian church, till it was lost through unbelief. That novel invention among the Romanists, extreme unction, practised not for cure, but where life is despaired of, bears no manner of resemblance to this.

 

People's Bible Notes for James 5:14

Jas 5:14 Is any sick among you. In the early church, when miraculous gifts were imparted by the laying on of apostolic hands "as a sign to unbelievers" (see 1Co 14:22), one of these was the gift of healing. Let him call for the elders. In most early churches founded by the apostles some one of the elders would have this gift. There is no more reason for the descent of this gift to our times than of any other miraculous power. Let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. This passage, then, describes what was peculiar to the early church. The sick were anointed by the elders with oil, a symbol of the Spirit, which effected the healing, hands were laid, and prayer offered. See Mr 6:13 Isa 1:6 Lu 10:34.

God word is plain and simple to understand.He do not speak in riddles,He speaks so you will understand, yet there are those that try to add to His word or change it to their way of thinking.Where is your faith ? Either believe God or make Him a lie , God is not a man that He should lie Numbers 23 19 Read James 4 8 AMEN and Amen

P. Petr yes any Christ Man Christian can annoint

 

Jim's comment on 2014-06-17 13:12:50:

I believe God heals in his own timing and he can use other sources like hospitals and doctors.I also believe that he can use doctors and give them wisdom,so not going to the doctors and asking God to heal you that is one thing,but he has placed in there for a reason

 

Jesse Howard's comment on 2014-01-04 22:36:24:

I am a believer and follower of the practice of a anointing and praying for the sick. I have witnessed, many times, God's Grace in healing someone in need. I'm not hear to argue for or against modern day medicine, but to witness to you God's love for us and His willingness to bless us when we have faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. I believe anointing and prayer through the laying on of hands, are just one more way God expresses His love for us. He uses the Sacrament of the Bread and the Wine, the Sacrament of Marriage, Baptism, and many more. May God bless us, all, as we continue to seek Him.

 

Philomena Pters's comment on 2013-10-17 04:46:12:

I have a question. Does "Elders" in James 5:14 mean in todays Church "Elders" or does it mean any believer?

 

Cole Mock's comment on 2013-03-20 23:21:21:

On July 6, 2012 I was in a serious car accident that left me in a coma and on life support for 6 days. I was truly about to die, I suffered a Diffuse Axional Injury which is an injury to your brain. The Doctors told my parents they wouldn’t know the significance of my wellbeing or my deficiency until I wake up. My Dad in his obedience to God's word anointed my head the first night I laid on life support. I stand before you today in great shape. A recent MRI showed no scrapes and no bruising, my doctors are astonished and can not believe their eyes and it has been over 8 months since the accident and I will be returning back to work as a Geneva County Deputy Sheriff. How wonderful our God is. All we have to do is follow his word. Google my injury and you'll see the significance of it. I love you all and thank you Father Amen.

I think it means what it says in the King James Version. Changes made to God’s word will never change the truth. My faith is in Jesus (The Word).

 

Russell Cole's comment on 2012-02-27 21:12:06:

My wife suffers from debnilitating back pain She worked as an emergency room nurse where she received the injury 20 yeqars ago. She has been unable to find relief. I have prayed that her pain would lessen or go away to no avail. Should I call upon the elders of the church for help?

 

Chineduand 's comment on 2010-08-17 09:23:47:

Following what is written here, medication is against the will of God. and anything against the will of God is sin. While the Bible (THE WORD OF GOD) said that sinners will never enter the kingdom of God. So lets retrieve our ways and go to God in any situation we find ourself.

 

Paul Johnsonhe 's comment on 2010-08-17 09:17:08:

For me, i think the oil is for the fulfillmen of the word of God. I wish every christian should practice this. The word of God said we should go to the elders for prayers not to hospital or any medical center. Here God is telling us to trust in Him

 

David's comment on 2010-05-10 23:34:29:

i think the oil is reffered to medicine the olive oil which the people of israel use as medicine so st james says to use medicine and pray to god with faith
