Morning Verse of the Day- (James 5:13-15) "FAITH & HEALING"

Morning Verse of the Day- (James 5:13-15) "FAITH & HEALING"

Scripture Breakdown

5:13-15: The sick person is to call for the elders – (Presbyters) for prayer … Salvation deals with the whole person, for each of human being is a unity, body, and soul … This sacrament has a double purpose: Not just for healing but also for forgiveness as well … The presbyter – (shorten from: “priest”) is given certain gifts of the ministry at ordination, the laying of the hands – (see, also 1Timothy 4:14) … Prayer is combined with OLIVE OIL – not only the primary medicine of ancient times, but also a symbol of the Holy Spirit in the Church – in a single sacrament that effects a healing for the whole person … So, the elements of the sacraments of healing include (1) THE PRESBYTER OR PRIEST (v. 13); (2): THE PRAYER OF (the) FAITH THAT WILL SAVE – (v. 15), connected with (3): THE WORK OF CHRIST HIMSELF, FOR THE LORD WILL RAISE UP, and (4): THE HOLY SPIRIT, manifested in the oil; and (5): CONFESSION OF SINS just prior to the anointing with oil, which explains why James writes IF HE HAS COMMITTED SINS, HE WILL BE FORGIVEN – (v. 15) … In the Orthodox Church, this sacrament is granted anyone who is sick, whether in danger of dying or not …

Numbers 6:24-26

“The Lord bless you and keep you;

25 The Lord make His face shine upon you,

And be gracious to you;

26 The Lord [a]lift up His countenance upon you,

And give you peace.” ’
