[Download Mp3] The Ministry of the Laying On of Hands – Kenneth Copeland

Laying on of hands is one of the six fundamental principles of the doctrine of the Lord Jesus Christ listed in
Hebrews 6:1–2. Jesus Himself freely employed laying on of hands to heal people. In Mark chapter 6, we see Jesus in His hometown of Nazareth:
Paul practiced the laying on of hands too. In Acts chapter 28, we find Paul shipwrecked on an island. The father of the ruler of the island was ill, so Paul went to his house “and prayed, and he laid his hands on him and healed him” (v. 8 NKJV). The man was healed through the laying on of hands.
Scripture goes on to say that the islanders brought their sick to Paul and he ministered to them. Obviously Paul ministered by the laying on of hands.
Here, not only were the sick healed, but the demonized were delivered as cloths Paul had laid his hands on were laid upon their bodies.
Some will say, “The apostles could do that, but it’s not for us today.” This is a worn-out lie that no one should be listening to! Jesus didn’t say these signs would follow just the apostles. To say that we cannot lay hands on the sick today is to say that one of the fundamental principles of the doctrine of Christ has been done away with.
If laying on of hands for healing has been done away with, no one would have a right to believe in the doctrine of repentance.
I’m not going to take anything away from the doctrine of Christ. I believe all of it. I am a follower of Christ. I am a stickler for the doctrine of Christ. And one of the doctrines is laying on of hands.
