Bible Commentary for James 5:14

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which Christ committed to his apostles, #Mark 6:13|, remained in the church long after the other miraculous gifts were withdrawn.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.

    Today is June 24th of 2020:

    About two years ago, I was diagnosed with prostate cancer, confirmed by two laboratory tests, several MRIs, CT Scans, many PSA test, and other many test.

    The entire time, I refused to accept it, and prayed and believed with all my heart, all my mind, and all my soul, that God could heal me; And for that reason, I refused for the doctors to operate on me, or do any other type of treatments.

    A few weeks ago, I had a second prostate biopsy since I was diagnosed, and to tell you the truth I was trying to avoid it completely. I cannot tell you enough on how much pain and discomfort you thru this.

    Emotionally, I never even blinked once, I believed, prayed, and declared my healing every day.

    A couple days ago, I received the results of the second guided biopsy which is very accurate, and from 18 cores they took out an analyzed, it came back with 0. No cancer at all.

    Every day, I thank the lord for my healing, his mercy and un-measurable love and faithfulness.

    This is a scientifically proven real Healing.

    I made a promise to be his witness around the world when he would perform the healing and I specifically asked that I would be able to prove it to those that do not believe.

    This Sunday is my first declaration of my Miracle healing at a church in Dallas Texas and is going to be great.

    Here is the name of the church and address:

    La Parole Eternelle Church

    4600-Wheeler St, Fort Worth, Tx 76117.

    God is great....

    Mario. Praise the Lord for what He has done in your life & for your healing. 'Thy faith hath made thee whole & it is truly the Lord's Doing & it is marvellous in our eyes.' What an impetus to your love & faith in Him: that it may increase day by day & that you may prove Him faithful in every area of your life. Trust that your testimony to your Fellowship on the Lord's Day will be powerful & that it might be just the word from the Lord to someone struggling in their faith & God's Power.

    Psalm 100 for you.
  • Mario Sanchez - in Reply on James 5:14
    Pastor Chris, I am glad you got my message.

    I really appreciate your kind words of confirmation, and receive them, and accept them as true and sing the victory of the Lord.

    I thank the Lord for his mercy every minute that I have a chance to stop and pray.

    I made a promise to tell the world about his miracle, and you can count on that.

    It is going to be awesome and powerful. God has set me on fire.
