Laying on Hands

When someone gets sick they are to have hands laid on them. Why?

Well, what made them sick caused them to be seperated from God and lose their faith. It’s the elders of the church imparting because they are the strongest in faith for miracles or they wouldn’t have been chosen to be an elder.

James 5:14-16

14 Is 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:

15 And 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.

16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

In this scripture passage I’m seeing that it’s not a condition for the person sick to have enough faith to be healed it’s the elders imparting what they have. It’s also showing there’s a need to repent of our sins. Sin damages our souls the Holy Spirit comes through the elder to repair the broken hearts from the sin seperating us.

Sickness isn’t always into death. And it doesn’t have to be. When we repent it’s our savior causing us to remove anything seperating us from his love.

This is laying hands

See it’s laying hands not two fingers or a hand. It’s laying on hands. Laying on two fingers I believe is coming from
Hindu practice. They pray for healing too but are not praying to the same God. They touch the temple of the head to impart. Or lay two fingers touching the body.

While the sun was setting, all those who had any who were sick with various diseases brought them to Him; and laying His hands on each one of them, He was healing them.

In this scripture passage Jesus laid hands on each one of them.

Saul got his sight by hands being laid on him.

Acts 13:9

9 Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him.

2 Timothy 1:6

6 Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands.

Now this scripture makes so much sense how fear comes out by laying hands. 2 Timothy 1:7 says God hasn’t given us a spirit of fear. No coinsidence it comes after hands were imparting the Holy Spirit.
