James 5:14 ” Is anyone of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord.”

The early Church was a hospital, in the sense that the duties of the elders included caring for the sick among the congregation.  Ancient medicine used what was readily available…olive oil, wine, balms, and salves for cleansing, soothing, and treating the body.  The Lord wants the modern Church to incorporate the same” hospital concept” today.  Every Sunday hurting people come through the doors needing healing of mind, body, and spirit…and it’s up to us to minister to those needs.
