Anointing Service

By Brian Pepper

Bible Readings

Mark 6:12,13 “And they went out, and preached that men should repent.
13 And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them. 

James 5:14-16 “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.”

God is a Refuge in Sickness or in Health

Extracts from 'Ministry of Healing', Chapter 'The Care of the Sick.' p. 225-233. The Scripture says that "men ought always to pray and not to faint;" and if ever there is a time when they feel their need of prayer, it is when strength fails, and life itself seems slipping from their grasp.

Often those who are in health forget the wonderful mercies continued to them day by day, year after year, and they render no tribute of praise to God for His benefits.

God is a Compassionate Physician

When sickness comes, God is remembered. When human strength fails, men feel their need of divine help. And never does our merciful God turn from the soul that in sincerity seeks Him for help. He is our refuge in sickness as in health.

God is just as willing to restore the sick to health now as when the Holy Spirit spoke these words to the psalmist, "Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saveth them out of their distresses.
20 He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.” (Psalms 107:19,20)

And Christ is the same compassionate physician now that He was during His earthly ministry. In Him there is healing balm for every disease, restoring power for every infirmity. His disciples in this time are to pray for the sick as verily as the disciples of old prayed. And recoveries will follow; for “the prayer of faith shall save the sick." (James 5:15)

We have the Holy Spirit’s power, the calm assurance of faith that can claim God's promises.

The Lord's promise, "They shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover," (Mark 16:18) is just as trustworthy now as in the days of the apostles.

Conditions of Answered Prayer

But only as we live in obedience to His word can we claim the fulfillment of His promises. The psalmist says, "If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me." (Psalms 66:18)

If we render to Him only a partial, half-hearted obedience, His promises will not be fulfilled to us.

Confession of Sin

To those who desire prayer for their restoration to health, it should be made plain that the violation of God's law, either natural or spiritual, is sin, and that in order for them to receive His blessing sin must be confessed and forsaken.

Submission to God's Will

There are cases where God works decidedly by His divine power in the restoration of health. But not all the sick are healed.

Many are laid away to sleep in Jesus. John on the Isle of Patmos was bidden to write: "…Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors; and their works do follow them." (Revelation 14:13)

From this we see that if persons are not raised to health, they should not, on this account, be judged as wanting in faith.

  SDA Prophecy Chart
Bible in Song Sermons and Commentaries pages have exposed flaws in the "2300 day" prophecy chart most notably used by Seventh-day Adventists. Seventh-day Adventists in their biblical interpretation have favored the tradition of their founding fathers over Scripture and the "divine revelation" of their own prophet Ellen White. Read more.


Thank you for posting some of (Brian Pepper's) sermons. It's like reading the very words Jesus has spoken to me and is a great encouragement. I cannot say that about many Pastors but I can say that about (Pr Pepper). Thank you. Robert (USA) ... more testimonials.
