Bible Questions Answered:
“Tell me it is holy oil that is used in prayer. My good friend says she does not know. What do you say?...”
Uiara/ Sao Paulo, Brazil South America
James 5:14-15 KJV
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.
Did you notice the kind of oil, the elders of the church used?
You couldn't notice, because it is not stated, and the reason it is not stated, is that it is not the oil that heals, it is the prayer of faith to The Risen Savior, that heals.
Oil, is a Biblical type of God The Holy Spirit, and of course healing is one of His gifts.
Yet once again it is the prayer of faith, to The Lord, that brings about healing.
Many times in our New Testament, people were healed, and no oil was used and at other times it was.
Luke 6:19 KJV
And the whole multitude sought to touch Him: for there went virtue out of Him, and healed them all.
Mark 6:13 KJV
And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them.
The moment we place any emphasis upon an object, (such as anointing oil), we take the emphasis off Jesus, the only One, that is to be held in highest esteem, and worship.

Does it matter what kind of oil you use, if you use oil in anointing the sick? No. Many use olive oil from the Holy Land, but again, the emphasis is “not,” on the oil. The Oil speaks of the fact that God The Holy Spirit is present to administer healing in the name of Jesus Christ, The Healer.
