FAITES TOUT CE QU'IL VOUS DIRA
E-1 Thank you, and just remain
standing a moment while we speak to the--our heavenly Father.
Lord, we come to Thee now, to thank Thee for what Thou has done for us, for the measure of grace has been poured out upon us, that Thou has redeemed us by grace, and now we are sons and daughters of God through Jesus Christ, Who loved us and gave His own life for us. We once alienated from God without hope, without mercy, dead in sin and trespasses, going to an endless grave in a devil's hell, Christ died in our stead to reconcile us back to His Father as son and daughters. Our hearts are so grateful for this tonight. And Father, we pray that this will be a night long remembered because of His Presence.
We pray this prayer, because we know that it is in season, for Thou has said, "I will with thee, even in thee till the end of the world. The things that I do, shall you also, even greater for I go unto My Father."
And I know that we're praying right, because Thou has always desired to fulfill Thy Word. You watch over It to confirm It. And I pray that You'll grant this tonight, through the Name of Thy Son, Jesus. Amen.
E-2 How do you do? Good
evening, friends. It is a privilege of being here again tonight, to
minister in the Name of this most lovely Lord Jesus. And I just got up
a little late just a few moments ago, we just--we got in time to hear
this marvelous hymn of Brother Ekberg, "The Lord's Prayer." I tell you
singing does something to me, especially like that. I certainly pray
that God will bless our brother and keep him here on this earth, many,
many years until the coming of the Lord Jesus to sing these wonderful
hymns. He's a talent to the church.
I appreciate all the nice things that Brother Joseph has just said. I'm not worthy of those things that he said. 'Course, you know how a friend feels towards another. He loves me, and he says those things, and they come from his heart, and I appreciate them.
E-3 I see other singers, this
lovely brother here that sang for us in the first part of the meeting,
many other brothers setting close. And Brother Bosworth, I--I noticed
him setting with us again, tonight. Have you a word for us tonight,
That's Christianity, preferring your brother. Well, we will have him to preach for us tomorrow night then. If it's getting a little late, we'll have him to preach for us tomorrow night.
E-4 Brother Jack Moore, many of
you has met him, a brother who stuck by with me like a real brother. I
tell you, Brother Moore's not very much of a person to present himself.
He's not--doesn't care about being seen. It's hard to get him up even
to preach in one of the meetings. But a scholar, a brother, a diplomat,
a preacher, a real brother is our brother Jack Moore from Shreveport,
Louisiana. Many dangers, toils, and snares, we have already come,
Brother Jack and I, side by side. Whether I'm feel good, whether I'm
right, whether I'm wrong, whatever it is, Jack Moore's still my friend.
That's a real friend. That's one whose...
Anyone can go with you when the--the crowds going, but wait till you're standing alone. That's when a real brother stands by you. And Brother Jack has proved to be that, through the many battles he's come with me. I love Brother Jack tonight, with undying Christian love. And some glorious day, he with all the rest, I expect to stand in God's heaven. When the last battle is fought, the smoke is dried up, the arms are stacked, the Bibles folded, the last prayer is said, the tables are shoved out, and we're all there at the wedding supper, you know, that's going to be a marvelous time. I look forward to that. I...
E-5 One of my manager's
recently said, that in Canada where he was raised, our Brother Baxter,
he said, "They had a little bicycle up there one time, and they was
going to give every boy, or the boy that could ride a six inch plank,
hundred yards, up in the air four feet, would win a new Schwinn
bicycle." Said, "They had a little, sickly, type of a boy there, that
they didn't think knowed very much about a bicycle. And all the other
boys thought, 'Well, each one, they were special riders.' They'd go
down in the city and get a basket of groceries, or a bag of groceries,
never even touch their handlebars, swing around the corners, and
through traffic, and come on home with it.' They said, 'My, that boy's
always got his hands on the handlebars looking.' Said, 'Why, we can out
ride that fellow.'"
They was all in the contest. He happened to be the last one. Every one of them fell off but him. He went right on to the end of the road. He won the bicycle. All the boys got around him to ask him, "Why--how did you do it?"
He said, "I tell you, fellows." Said, 'You all are much better riders than I am, but," said, "you made a mistake." Said, "You were looking down, trying to keep your bicycle on this board." Said, "I set my eyes to the end, and just kept looking at the end, and I held that steady."
E-6 If I had to look what's
going on around me all the time, I might stray off the road too. But I
look what's at the end, keep my eye there, I can be steady. Let friends
forsake, and everything else goes wrong, and people say this, that, or
the other, I'm looking to the end, down there. That's where, I got our
eyes set, to this--this hour, when I meet my friend. When the battle's
all over, and we're there... And just imagine when they have the table
set, all the old veterans of the wars will set along this table. And I
look down and see Saint Paul setting down there, and Peter, James,
John, Brother Moore, and Brother Bose, and Brother Bosworth, oh, my,
others of the veterans, and look along that table there, you know
I--I--I just... You just reach across the table and squeeze one
another's hand. That's going to be wonderful. No doubt, but a little
tear will run down our cheek, once in a while for joy, then the King
will come out in His beauty and His robes around Him, the One Who
redeemed us, then talk about crying, talk about rejoicing. When we're
setting there thinking the great battles we've been through together,
and He will come down and wipe all the tears from our eyes, and say,
"Don't cry no more; it's all over. We all here now; enter into the joys
of the Lord."
That's going to be a wonderful time for me. I'm just--just look--looking to that all day long, and all night long. All the time, I look for that.
E-7 We're only going to be
mortal once. This is the last time for all eternity we'll ever be
mortal. This may be the last night that we're ever be mortal. Tomorrow
we may be immortal. So let's do what we can for mortal beings, while
we're mortal and can help them. Let's work while it's called day, for
night cometh when no man can work. God doesn't forget His children.
And now, our time gets away quickly. Last evening, I--when I kinda got to myself, I was going down a street, and it was almost ten o'clock, and I felt very bad, because I'd kept you that long. I don't mean to do that.
E-8 Now, you've heard much
gospel preaching tonight, and from ministers. And some of you have been
setting now for--every since about six o'clock. And I don't want to
keep you any longer. I'm not no speaker much. I want to read a
Scripture, give a little testimony, start the prayer line, while you're
I wish to say this. Today, I had the privilege of being at a place, some lovely home here in Chicago, just out riding around, and come to this place. I met a man that I've knowed for some time. He's just recently been converted, led a drunkard's life for a long time, backslider. And he come put his hands in mine, hand on my shoulder, fine brother, said, "Forgive me for doubting you."
And I said, "Well, what? Doubting me."
Said, "I was always a little skeptic, Brother Branham, until night before last." Said, "You'd come to the platform, and someone come up late."
E-9 Now, the best of the story
I can remember, they come to him to get a prayer card. The prayer cards
was done give out. They had a sick baby; they said... He said, "Well, I
tell you." Said, "You just go in and set down." He might have give the
people his seat. And said, "You just go in and set down, and you start
praying; you don't need a prayer card. Just pray." And said, "Himself,
he was suffering." And he walked back over... I believe it was
rheumatism, arthritis, or something he said. He walked back over, and
laid his head on the rail, and said, "God, speak to Brother Branham for
that poor little sick baby."
And at that very moment, the Holy Spirit heard his prayer, moved me right out into the audience, and said--told the people who they were, where they were from, what was wrong with their baby, told them, within twenty-four hours the baby would be changed. And they met it in twenty-fours hours, and the father said, "The baby's just doing fine...?..." So he said...
E-10 Sometimes it might seem like, if you see something different. We got a regular routine, Christianity has; we just have to stay right in that routine or we're--we're not Christians. We have to believe just this a way or we're not Christians. That's--that's too bad we get that way. See? We must be flexible to the Spirit. Let the Spirit of God led us. Many things are strange.
E-11 Now, when you see something
going on in the phenomenal realms, that you can't...?... find out, you
try to understand it, you can't... You heard it read from the Bible;
yet you just can't perceive it. Many people sometimes, said, "Well,
it's--it's the devil."
That's what the Pharisees done. They seen Jesus looking at people, and perceiving their thoughts, and telling things that happened. Well, the--the strange thing it was, when they thought first, "Oh, that's just phychic." But when they found out that what He said come to pass... What He said, He was perfect, accurate. And another thing, the sick got well. Why, they couldn't understand that. So then they couldn't--they didn't just try to try to figure it out, they just said, "It's the devil, that's all." And then you try to say... They'd see His healing, and they said, "Oh, He--He's just... He's a devil."
And Jesus said, "If the devil can heal the devil, or cast our the devil, isn't his kingdom divided?" See?
They just don't try to set down and try to reason it out with God. They try to reason it with theirself, and you can't reason God. That's all. You got to believe God. God is not known by knowledge. No matter how many degrees you got, how many seminaries you went through, it doesn't amount to that. [Brother Branham snaps his fingers--Ed.] That's true. You know God by faith, not by knowledge. See? You can't know God by--by knowledge.
E-12 In the garden of Eden,
there were two trees: One was knowledge and one was Life. And as long
as man eat off the Tree of Life, he had Everlasting Life. The first
bite he took from the tree of knowledge, he separated his fellowship
from God, and every time he takes a bite yet, he destroys himself. He
bit off gun powder; look what that does. He bit off automobile off the
tree of knowledge; kills more of his comrades than all the wars does.
He's got a hydrogen bomb bit off now. I wonder what he's going to with
that? God don't destroy nothing; man destroys himself by knowledge. See?
I'm so glad that Tree of Life is still blooming, the Holy Spirit here, where one time It drove us away from the tree until there was--could be reconciled to God through a Blood sacrifice, and now the Holy Spirit's running us back to that Tree. I don't know how it's done. I just believe it; that's all. That's the way to do it: just simple faith.
E-13 Sometimes people look and
they misunderstand. I don't know, the brother never explained. He
might've thought, "Well, it's..." Here sometime ago, a person that
didn't... You can understand what I mean by his feelings perhaps.
Sometime ago, a person said--went to a healing service, and went down
to Brother Roberts meeting, Brother Oral Roberts, a very fine brother,
fine man, doing a great work for God. And he would come through and
pray for the sick as they passed through the line. They asked this
minister, said, "What do you think about it?"
Said, "Mass psychology."
And they went over to another brother that prays for the sick. Said, "What do you think about that?"
He said, "Just a lot of excitement."
So they sent him down to my meeting. Come back, said, "What do you think that?"
Said, "A polished up soothsayer."
Well, he's born to disbelieve. So that's all you can do. That's all. You can't get blood from a turnip, because it hasn't got any blood. So that's the way it is. You can't get faith from something there's nothing to get faith out of. That's exactly right. So it has to be God in here first, to make faith. Is that right? Just the same as there has to be blood in a turnip, to get the blood out. So I'm so happy, tonight, that God had mercy on me, to make me a believer in His Son, Jesus Christ.
E-14 I wish to read of Him just
a moment. In the 2nd chapter of St. John, beginning with the 1st verse,
I wish to read the first five verses:
And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and Jesus... and the mother of Jesus... (rather)... was there:
And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.
And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus said unto him, They have no wine.
Jesus said unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.
Here's to--what I want to your mind.
His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.
E-15 That's still good teaching,
tonight. Whatever He saith unto you, do it. If He tells you, make ready
for death, you get ready. If He tells you you're going to get well, you
believe it. If He tells you that you're healed, you are. Whatever He
says, you do it. Disbelieve it is sin.
Now, how marvelous we see Him. What a answer there to His mother. "What have I to do with thee? My time has not yet come."
But the mother immediately, knowing that you can't ask Jesus for anything, and He'd turn you down, said, "Whatever He says, you do just as He says."
"Obedience is better than sacrifice, hearken, unto the fats at rams."
E-16 I am reminded of a little
testimony that I was telling to our Brother Joseph today, and he said,
"Brother Branham, I would like to have that testimony." It comes to my
heart now, just for a brief five minutes or so, and I will try to give
it. It'll be on the tape.
Now, I watch every word (I have to) that I say, because here's, oh, eight or ten recorders setting here. There's your voice. See? You must be sure that every word's right, 'cause it's--once said, it's over.
E-17 I just suppose that many of
you think, that a life of this type, is just a great glamour, and
people patting you on the shoulders, and--and going along. "Well,
everything's just roses," as we say, but very much contrary. It's the
hardest, drug out life that a human ever lived. You not only have the
individual. A lot of time fanatics coming and disagreeing and saying
ugly things. I think the Lord permits that. It keeps you humble with
them type people.
Just telling you that the Lord said, "If you don't do this, He's going to punish you. The Lord said, 'This and that.'" If the Lord wanted to talk to me, I'm on speaking terms with Him. He would tell me.
E-18 And many times they fix an auditorium, advertise in the paper, that I'm to be... I don't even know nothing about it, and then the people begin to call me and saying, "Well, Brother Branham, you're advertised in the paper." Oh, that hurts me. But here a few days ago, someone kept calling in home, and--and a meeting up in Pennsylvania somewhere, a lady having a meeting said, "I'm Brother Branham's co-worker; he will be here tomorrow night." And people gathered out, and ministers closed their churches. And said, "Well, I just got him on the telephone." Said, "He can't come until tomorrow afternoon at five o'clock." And then kept on day after day, stalling it off, and I don't even know the--never heard of her in my life. See? But that's the way it goes. So that hurts, but it's all right. It's all--God just makes me know, pray a little harder and keep a little closer to Him. It's a wonder I have a friend left, isn't it, under such as that? But my friends understand.
E-19 I tell this one thing, Christian people, don't worry about anything, just as long as God goes with you, everything else will just fall right into it's place, and just--it'll--it'll be--love. Just in your heart, pray till you love the Lord Jesus with all your heart, and you'll love every one of His people with all, and you'll love every sinner with all your heart. You'll love everybody, and the people will know that you love them. No matter how much you try to impersonate it, you can't do it. People knows better than that, especially spiritual minded people. They know better than that. And just love, that's the main thing. If I had one--one thing that I could say to the people tonight, any commandment to keep, just love one another; love the Lord Jesus, and everything will be all right. Just keep in love.
E-20 Now, inside life... It's no
one but God alone, knows what you go through with. All hours of the
night, I have prayed till I'd be so weak I couldn't hardly stand up,
and unconscious, and walking the floor with a pillow in my hand, at
night time, trying to sleep, thinking I was praying for the sick. Not
only that, but inside of that, demons that's commanded... Sometimes, we
hit hard places.
Here a few nights ago on the platform, after picking it up from my manager, and my boy and them, telling me of it, there was a blind man came to the platform. The man had sinned or something--something was wrong, and I just had prayer and started him away. Something said, "Stop the man." Well, I think if you ask for a miracle to be performed, sometimes like that, it hinders your prayer line. The rest of them are waiting then, as Brother Bosworth called it, "Spiritual hitchhikers." It's a--they expect... See? You must have your own faith. But when this man had did wrong, and you'll notice very careful, that in there...
E-21 For instance, if I was a
doctor, and you came to me and you said, "Oh, doctor, I've got a
terrible headache. It comes all the time, every day, and I just can't
get rid of it."
And I'd give you a handful of aspirin, say, "Go on." or give you a hypo just to knock the headache, I'm not much of a doctor. No, I'm not. What I am, I'm just only trying to get rid of you, get you out of the office, or something on that order. A real doctor, if you go to him, and tell him you're having persistent headaches, He will say, "Come in, strip down. Get on the table." He will examine you and do everything. He will not give you nothing, till he find out what he's giving it for. He diagnoses a case, a real doctor, till he finds where the trouble is, and then he starts from there, He knows what he's working on then. If he just brushes you off, that's not much of a doctor.
E-22 Same thing, many times in praying for the sick, you notice the case that's come up. The real best way to do it would be to each case, not in mass meetings like this, in my home or office somewhere, where I could take the patient and find out just where the trouble lays. There's some cause for everything. And you'll--if you'll watch, it's very seldom you ever hear me rebuke a evil spirit. You realize gifts, like this, could cause you to lose out with God? Moses was a prophet, and he--God had entrusted him with power. And He told him to go out and speak to the rock. And instead of speaking to the rock, Moses got angry and smote the rock. And that broke every record of the Bible, right there. See? Because that was Christ. Christ wasn't smitten twice, He was only smitten once. But He had power to bring the rock--well, water from the rock, rather, whether it was God's will or not, 'cause he was a prophet.
E-23 Elijah, the young fellow,
went bald-headed when he was a young man. The little children run
behind him, and called him "old bald-head." And that angered that
prophet, and he put a curse on those children, and two she bears killed
forty-two little innocent children, because that prophet cursed those
children in the Name of the Lord. That's not the nature of the Holy
Spirit. See? But God dealt with him.
That same way, we have to watch what you're doing. When a patient comes, be careful. Sometime there's sin laying there. And if--if this person... Here stands Mr. John Doe. He went out, a few months ago; he was untrue to his family. He did something evil, and God let Satan put a curse on him to bring him back. Now, here he comes up on the platform, and I stand here and anoint him with oil: "Come out of him, devil." I might just scream as all till I get hoarse, and that devil will lay right there. Certainly, he will. The first thing it is, and if you had power of your own to take that curse off of that man, and him in that condition, that God put that on there for something else, and you come around and take it off... See what I mean? You have to be careful. Then you're in trouble with God, right away.
E-24 First thing you should do, was Mr. Doe, if he's sick, and something's wrong, and he can't live but a little while, is find our what's the cause. What's the will of God. Then when the vision produces and shows what Mr. Doe has done or has not done, then you see where the cause is, and what then... We know the cure is the Lord Jesus Christ. But we've got to know the cause, then you see the Lord Jesus lets you know that if Mr. Doe will make this right, the healing's there. Then you can say, "In the Name of Jesus Christ, the Son of God..." You can curse that disease that's on him. That power belongs to the church, and it can be done. But, otherwise, be careful what you're doing. That's the reason so many failed healing in the line; you must come to the line making confession, "God, search my heart; if I have sinned, forgive me. And if You... If anything I've failed to do, reveal it to me, and I'll make it right. I'll go do just what You want me to do." For there's bound to be some cause for that. Do you believe that? That's exactly the truth.
E-25 Now, just reminds me, I
believe I was with Brother Bosworth. I think it was a meeting with him.
I was in Dallas; I was flying home. Here's a little inside story. Many,
many times, even papers has packed mystic things happening, and didn't
know what had come to pass. I just right there when it--when it has
happened. He will send me places.
For instance, here some time ago, said, it was over near at Denver, Colorado, where there was a man, that was setting in a wheelchair. Said... A mystic affair come out in the paper. I was praying; He sent me over there to pray for a baby. And the same day, I'd seen a vision of this baby where the--the little--the doctor came out of a--a place, and they had a Ford, little gray Ford. And he had this... And I went up, and as I opened the gate to go in, there was one of these old hoes laying beside the gate. And I went in; the lady met me at the door, and she took my hat and laid it on the bed, and there's a lady come with a--a red sweater on and set down. And the baby was dying. And then, another lady come in and set down with a brown coat on, and they taken my hat and laid it up on the television. And I went over and put my hands on the baby, and I looked and here He stood by my side. The baby got well.
E-26 Not long after that, three
or four days after the vision, well, I was called to a place in
Colorado, to a man that had TB. And I went to pray for him; something
told me to go over and pray for him. And I got in the plane and went
over. And after praying for that--that man, I don't know whatever
happened to him. I was waiting for the plane, and I said, "I just...
He... I just feel like I want to walk." And I was walking down this
street going along, and I seen a doctor with a gray suit on packing a
little... I thought "That fellow looks familiar to me." And I looked
setting here, set--set a little gray Ford. I said, "It's a vision.
That's what come the other day." See? And I seen--I said, "If he's...
I'll watch him." He come out; I said, "Howdy do?" He spoke, got in the
car, very polite, and I looked laying behind the gate, and there laid
that hoe. I said, "This is it."
And I went to the door, knocked on the door, and a lady come to the door with the red sweater on. I said, "Howdy do?"
And she said, "Howdy do?"
And I--I said, "I'm a minister of the Gospel. Have you sickness?"
She said, "A baby."
I said, "It's laying in a bed to the left as you go in at the door. Described how..."
She said, "Where is your--your parish?"
And I said, "The world is my parish." I said, "My name is Branham." She never heard of me. I said, "May I have a prayer, for your baby?"
She said, "You may, sir." She said, "We are Christians here." I stepped in. She took my hat and laid it on the bed. Now, the other lady with the brown coat on hadn't come in. So I waited a hour. The lady wondered what all the waiting about. So it was a hour, the lady had not come in yet. And after while, when she come in she set down in the place where the lady with the red sweater on was supposed to be setting. So that wasn't right, and my hat was still on the bed. I couldn't tell them, but they had to do it. The Angel of the Lord wasn't there yet; that was a sign to me when to pray. And they was working with the baby, after while the--the lady picked up my hat and laid it up on the radio, on the television, then I walked over to the bed, said, "THUS SAITH THE LORD, the baby will live." Started reaching for it's mother and taking the covers off of him. That was it.
While they were weeping, I slipped out the door. They never knew who I was or nothing about it.
E-27 I was going down a street,
and I thought I heard something squeaking, and it was a wheelchair. It
was going right along in front of me. And it was a man in a wheelchair
with a Bible, crying. And I seen him going along just rejoicing out of
the wheelchair. I thought, "That's strange."
And I went down and stood to where there's a ten cent store. A street come this a way. I was over the other day looking at the place, never said nothing to nobody. And I looked at the place, and there was... And I--I seen... I thought, "Well, this is..." Stood there at the corner, and I heard that squeaking. Now, the--the vision hadn't been over twenty minutes, and the man come by, holding a Bible, weeping. I thought, "Well, here it is." I said, "Howdy do, sir?"
And the lady that was pushing him... I said, "What's the matter, sir."
He said, "I am..."
I said, "You've got a mighty fine book there."
And he said, "I believe every word of it."
And I said, "Do you believe it's contents all through?"
He said, "I do, sir, with all my heart." [Blank.spot.on.tape--Ed.]
And I said, "What's the matter."
Said, "The doctor has just discouraged me. I've been crippled up with arthritis. He tells me, I'll never again walk."
I said, "The contents of that Book said that there was a Man died that you could walk again."
He said, "The Lord Jesus?"
And I said, "Yes, sir. Do you believe that?"
He said, "I do."
I said, "Rise up from there. For THUS SAITH THE LORD, you shall walk." And the man jumped up, and they had a--they thought they had the Salvation Army on the corner. I run through the ten cent store, went out the alley, and back down the other way, and caught my cab, and went to the airplane. They don't know today, what ever happened. See? And that--that's right. They don't know nothing about it. See? It isn't for self glory, it's for the Lord Jesus Christ...?...
in congregation speaks in tongues--Ed.] Lord Jesus Christ be
blessed. I am--I believe now that I would start the prayer line just in
a moment. And I trust that God will heal all the sick and the needy
that's here tonight. May His blessings come upon all.
One little instance... I'm sorry I didn't finish what I was telling of Brother Bosworth. Brother Joseph wanted this. They was... I was coming from Dallas, coming home to Jeffersonville. And I, maybe, have time to get this. I was...
[Blank.spot.on.tape--Ed.] And they put me in that hotel down there, and a--that big hotel, I believe it's called Peabody Hotel. I couldn't afford to stay in a place like that, but the United Airlines put me in there, so I... The next morning, they said the plane would leave. They called us and said it would leave at eight o'clock. At six thirty, I was up and had some breakfast. I had some mail I'd answered, sick people give me cards, and little offerings, and so forth, and I'd answered them back that night, when I got in, and was going to drop it back in the mail with the handkerchiefs I'd prayed over. I started down the street. This has been about eight years ago, I guess. And I was going down the street, walking towards where I thought I'd find a mailbox. And all of a sudden, the Holy Spirit, said, "Stop."
E-29 And I noticed there was a
fishing tackle and hardware store. And I just love fishing tackle. And
a friend of mine just made me a present of a gun out there, and, oh,
my, how those things... I just born for nature and I love it. And
I--looking at those tackles, I--like that, to see that nobody was
looking at me, and I bowed my head, I said, "Father, what did You want
me to do?"
I kept waiting, waiting. I heard something say, "Turn and go back the other way."
I passed by the hotel; I walked, and I walked, and I walked. I looked at my watch; it was done past time for the limousine to leave to go out to the airport. I thought, "I'm late."
But something kept saying, "Walk. Go on. Keep walking."
I was way down by the river. Way out of Memphis. And I was walking along there, not knowing where I was going. It's not my business to know where You're going. It's obedience. I just kept on walking.
E-30 It'd just come a storm, you
know, that night, and the--and the planes was grounded. So, oh, that
morning... It was early spring, and the dew, you know, and so forth, on
the roses that sweet smell of--of the rose, and the--the honeysuckle
and things had--just had the air in aroma, so I was just enjoying going
along there. Had my hand over my heart (not my Bible, didn't have It
with me), My hand over my heart singing, "I'm so glad that I can say
I'm one of them." Just singing that little pentecostal song, that I
just learned from the pentecostal people over there, 'cause I hadn't
been acquainted with them just a little while then. And I kept going
on; there's a little colored house there, little bitty hut like. And
hanging over the gate was a typical old Aunt Jemima, big woman,
colored, fat. She had a man's shirt tied around here head like a
handkerchief, hanging down her back, and she was looking like this as I
come down the street. I was practically the distance of this when I
noticed her, and I--I just quit humming. I was singing to myself. I
just started to pass by, and I seen the tears running down her cheeks
like this. And I passed by, and she said, "Good morning, parson."
I said, "Good morning, Auntie."
And I thought, "Parson. How'd she know I was a preacher." So I turned around, I said, "Auntie, pardon me, but how'd you know I was a parson?"
And she said, "Did you ever read in the Bible about the Shunammite woman, that--that wanted children and couldn't have any, and the prophet Elijah blessed her, and she had a baby?"
I said, "Yes, ma'am."
She said, "I's is one of them kind of women." She said, "And the Lord blessed me and give me a boy." And she said, "I raised him the best of my knowledge to serve the Lord." And she said, "To my sorrow, she--he got out among some bad company, and he taken a horrible disease, a social disease." And said, "And the doctors, it was too far gone, they could do nothing for him. They give him the penicillin, and everything, and the shots, and it didn't do any good." And said, "He's been unconscious now two days, laying in there, a dying, a backslider." And said, "I's prayed to the Lord." Said, "Parson, I washed over the board. I done everything to raise that boy to love the Lord, and it'd just break my heart to see if he has to die a sinner." And she said, "Last night, I prayed, and I said, 'Lord, won't You please send Your servant by here, or somebody that will help me to pray for this boy?' Said, 'Your doctor man says that he ain't going to wake up any more.'" And said, "I went to sleep on my knees." Said, "I dreamed that I saw a man wearing a light lead colored hat, with a light suit on, just you, exactly, coming down the street. And the Lord said, 'Here he comes.' And said--and said, "I woke up about three o'clock." And said, "I come on out here, and stood at the gate since three o'clock." And her back was still wet. She said, "I've been waiting here since three o'clock this morning for you to come along. And I seen you coming; the--the Spirit of the Lord told me, said,'Here he is.'"
I thought, "Well, bless the Lord."
She opened up the gate; she knew I was coming in. She opened up the gate, said, "Won't you come in?"
I said, "Thank you, Auntie." I took off my hat.
E-31 She opened up the door of
the little old hut there, looked inside. It was clean. No rug on the
floor, little old poster--iron poster bed to the right-hand side. There
hung a sign on the wall, "God bless our home." no pin up pictures, "God
bless our home." Rather have that than anything I know of, hanging on
I've been in king's palaces; I been in some of the most lovely homes the world's got. I never had it. And I felt welcome and good, but I really feel any welcome, than I did in that little colored house, where those colored people lived that morning. Walked in there, there was a fine big colored boy laying there, about eighteen, nineteen years old. He had the--the blanket in his hand, going "Mh-mh-mh." [Brother Branham makes a sound--Ed.]
I said, "What's the matter with him?"
She said, "For two days, parson, he said, 'He's lost.'" Said, "He's out on a great big deep sea, and it's dark, and he can't see nothing nowhere." Said, "That's all he talks about."
I said, "I'd like to talk to him."
Said, "He don't know nothing." Said, "That's all you can get out of him. He don't even know me."
I put my hand down on his feet, just as cold as they could be. Death had struck the boy, I really believe. I said, "The doctor said, 'He... '"
Said, "Yes, sir, he's done gone out of his head." Said, "He's been that way for two days. The doctor said, 'He will never wake up no more.'" Said, "I can't see my baby die like that." She walked over and kissed him on his head.
E-32 And brother, something
happened in my heart. No matter how much disgrace he got into, how big
he was, nothing about it. That was that mother's baby yet. And I
thought, "If the love of a mother will reach down to there, the love of
God will go beyond it." That's right, and that's true. I said, "Auntie,
shall we pray?"
She said, "Yes, sir." She knelt down there.
I said, "Would you lead us in prayer?" And a prayer, I tell you I can hear it yet. That old saint of God on her knees, crying out to God to spare her boy. And listen, she didn't say nothing about healing.
I told her what my name was. She'd never heard of me. And I--I never told her what I done, what--of praying for the sick. I just told her that was my name. And she a--and a--she wasn't praying for him to get well; she was praying for God to save his soul. So she was just praying like that, "Lord, don't let my baby die like this. Let me--let me, his mammy, hear him say one time, 'Mammy, I'm saved, and going home to Jesus.'" She kept praying like that. When she stopped praying, we were both crying. I got up, set on the side of the bed. She just stayed on her knees. She said, "Parson, you pray now?"
I said, "Yes, ma'am." I got down. I admit I couldn't pray a prayer like hers, and I--I said, "Lord Jesus, my plane is gone, and You told me to keep walking. And I've walked till I come this far, and this is the only--only sign or anything that I know that You'd want me to stop. And if you made this poor woman, stand out here since three o'clock, surely this is the place You want me to stop." And I had a hold of the boy's feet.
And I heard him saying, "Mammy?"
She said, "Yes, honey."
Says, "It's getting light in the room." Another two or three minutes he was setting on the side of the bed.
E-33 I hurried out of the house
real quick. Run down to get my plane. Thought we'd find how far I had
to got, and I jumped in a cab, took off to the plane. When I got over
there, said, "Last call." The plane had engine trouble and was setting
there waiting for me for two hours and something. See, see?
I think of sovereign grace, the love of God that the faith of that poor, maybe, illiterate colored woman held that plane two and a half hours, till somebody could walk down there to the answer of a prayer of that poor old mother, probably couldn't read her name before her... God don't care how much education you got; He wants your heart.
E-34 About a year later, I
passed through there on a train, and I stopped. And if any of you goes
into Memphis, the train goes in this way, going west, and there's a--a
little restaurant way up at the end. And I was--got out and started up
to that restaurant, and there was a young red cap hollered, "Hello,
I said, "Howdy, sir."
He come over there and took hold of my hand and trembling, the tears run down his eye, said, "Don't you remember me?"
I said, "I don't believe I do."
Said, "You remember one morning that the--that you come down to my house and prayed for me. I'd been unconscious about two days?"
I said, "Yes, sir. You the boy?"
Said, "Yes sir, I--I'm not only healed, but I's a Christian now." He said, "I--I's a Christian." That's our Lord Jesus.
E-35 When it's all over, the last prayer's done said, I preach my last sermon one of these days, if Jesus tarries, and I fold my arms to go to meet Him, I wonder what it'll be on the resurrection morning when I get to set down with those kind of people over on the other side, and we all set and talk awhile together, no hurry. But now's when we're in a hurry. Now's when we've got to work. The sun's a setting, friends. It ain't but a little while, till it's all going to be over. Then we'll see one another and enjoy the blessings of God throughout eternity. And there'll never be another prayer said for the sick people. There'll never be a sinner. There'll never be any hurry. There'll be no night. It'll be day forever. So let's press on now. And may the Lord Jesus reveal Hisself to each one of you here tonight, in such a way that you'll set your affections towards Jesus Christ and never change your course, but go straight towards Him all the time you're in this life's journey. Shall we pray.
E-36 Lord, Who made the heavens and the earth, when my poor Irish heart goes back to think of the things that I've seen Your wonderful hand do, too far along the road now, Lord, to think of turning around, getting an aged man. I pray that You'll keep me, Lord, in Your will. Never let me stray; let me stay close to You all the time. And wherever You want me to go, I want to go, Father. I want do and say just as You'd have me do and say. And for this service tonight, I submit myself to You. Here's Your poor, sick, children setting here; they're needy, Lord, some of them just as--as dying condition as the boy that I told about. Some of them are in horrible shape. Your servants, the doctor's done all he can do. And they're helpless, but not hopeless, Lord. You're still here. You're our hope. And I pray that You'll bless everyone tonight; give us of Thy Spirit. Many, Lord, in this building tonight, when they see that You're really here, that Your Presence is here, I pray that there'll not be a feeble one among us at the end of the meeting. May every sick person, crippled, afflicted, blind, whatever it may be, may they be healed. I ask in Jesus' Name. Amen.
E-37 These to be prayed over? [Brother Branham speaks with someone--Ed.] Where's the boy? What's the number of prayer cards, Billy? T? I got mixed up a little last night, calling just one at a time. We'll just call a group tonight. Let's call from a--hundred? Let's call from thirty-five to fifty. Who has T-35? Let's try from there, call out from fifteen from there on: 35, 36, 37, 38, in T's on up to 50. And while their lining up, shall the rest of us bow our heads just a moment?
E-38 Loving Saviour, in this box
here, tonight, that's filled almost to the top with letters. Poor,
sick, suffering people... Can imagine You going down the streets and
seeing what took place in Jerusalem. Your heart was moved. When I see
people here in the building, and look at night after night, boxes of
letters coming, that's for someone at home. God, let Thy heart be moved
again, Lord, with compassion. And may Your mercy just sweep over this
box now. You see every letter, every handkerchief; You watched them
when they was writing it; You're looking at it now. And may it be
carried carefully and the Holy Spirit watching it, when it's laid on
the sick, may they be healed. Grant it, Lord.
We may never see them in this life. Thousands we'll never see, but yet, we love them, Lord, because You loved them and gave Your life for them, and You was striped and stood against that post, that morning when those great lashes split your ribs. That was for their healing. It was not in vain, Lord. I can see the flesh quiver as those big balls of lead swept into Your side. It was not in vain. Lord, let me die preaching this. By Your stripes we're healed. Cold winds a blowing, and Peter warming himself at the fire, and Your precious back sticking to the old cross. No, it wasn't in vain. Every drop of Blood brought healing. And I pray, Lord, that the devil be defeated at every case here. May Jesus Christ be honored, for we send it for that purpose. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
E-39 Now, real slowly if we
will, let's sing, "Lord, I believe." Just once, real slow now. Every
one, if you will.
Lord, I believe, Lord, I believe;
All things are possible, Lord, I believe;
Lord, I believe, Lord, I believe;
My boy says that there's one card lacking in the line, prayer card T-37. Is that right, Billy? T-37, does anyone have T-37? It may be a deaf person. Look around. They maybe don't even hear their number called. Look at your neighbors card. Here's a lady, maybe, she's got something she stands in. Maybe... Has--has she got a prayer card, lady, setting next to her? She--is that--is that her number? It isn't. All right, someone that's a--would know the T-37? If it's in the building, why, bring them up. They missed their place in the line. All right.
E-40 Now, may the Lord Jesus,
the Son of God, be merciful, and bless each one. Now, while their
lining up, we'll get started right away if we can in the prayer line.
And the lady...
I wonder to someone maybe who be strange with us, what do you think that Jesus would do if this lady was standing before Him? He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. If she's coming for healing, I don't know. But say, she's got a--a--a headaches, or she's got something wrong with her. Say, she's got a cancer, and she's going to die right away, and the Lord Jesus was here. She'd come up; Jesus would tell her, "Now, as far as healing you, I did that when I died for you. Do you believe this?" He'd say.
And she'd say, "I do."
He'd say, "Do you believe that I am the Son of God?" Or something on that order.
She'd say, "I do."
Then maybe there'd be something wrong with her. May she'd done something that you should not have done, then He'd say, "Go, make that right, and thou shall live." See? Or maybe it'd be something that He'd want to tell her about, He'd tell her. But as far as healing her, He's already done it. That's right. Or for saving the sinner in here, sinner man or sinner woman, He's already saved you. You have to accept it. Now, the Lord be blessed as we pray.
E-41 I want to talk to the woman. How many here for your first time, you've never been in one of my meeting before? Let's see your hands. Anywhere? Why, there's quite a number. And I--I appreciate you being here. And you've heard of it, perhaps, how it by vision now. And I going to ask you one thing, while this is going on, will you try to be reverent? Just have respects for the Lord Jesus Christ. Just respect. Just keep your seat. They don't let me stay too long, 'cause it's in a--a subconscious condition. You see? And it--I can't stay too long. The manager and them gets me. So be reverent.
E-42 And now, you remember when
Jesus spoke to a woman, He wanted to find out what was her trouble? He
talked to her, the woman at the well. And He said, "Bring me a drink."
to carry the conversation.
And she said, "It's not customary for the Jew to ask the Samaritans such."
Said, "If you knew Who you were talking to, you'd ask Me for a drink." Went ahead and carried the conversation till He found where her trouble was. He said, "Go get your husband."
She said, "I have none."
Said, "You've got five."
She said, "Well, I perceive that You're a prophet." Said, "We know that Messiah is coming."
He said, "I am He."
She ran into the city, and said, "Come, see a Man that--that told me everything I ever done." Now, she was excited. He didn't tell her all she ever done. He just told one thing she was doing wrong. But if He could tell her one thing, He could tell her everything. Don't you think? Sure.
He told Philip, He knowed who he was. The woman that touched the hem of His garment, He looked out in the audience and said, "Thy faith has saved thee from that blood issue." Now, He's the same Jesus, tonight, isn't He. You believe that?
E-43 Now, as I speak to the lady, I--only for this purpose, just to find what her spirit is. Then there's like a reel in heaven; we'll call it way; it isn't that way. But like in heaven, there's a reel, and in this reel everything that she ever did is laying right there before God. And what--the end of her life lays right before God. Now, then God can show me what she has done, and she knows whether that'll be true or not. Then He can show me what is to come, and if He does, and if she knows that was true, she'd have faith to believe what--what will be said will be true. You, see? And check anyone, any time, it's always perfect. See? 'Cause it's not this poor, humble, ignorant man here; it's the Lord Jesus Christ. That's right.
E-44 Now, sister, I suppose, not
knowing you, we become stranger to each other. I do not know you, as
far as I know. We're strangers to each other, are we? I am--I'm here as
your brother, to try to help you. And God knows, I'd do anything that I
could to help you. But--but now, being just a man, well, it's very
little I could do, only I'm your brother in the Lord Jesus. And God has
give gifts into the church that we can help one another. You believe
that? You are a Christian. 'Cause your spirit is welcome. You're a
Christian. And do you believe that the Lord Jesus can let me know what
is your trouble, if we're strangers?
Now, you're--you're aware that something's going on. That's--that's that Angel of God that they got the picture of It here. See? That's exactly. You've never come in contact with It before. But you know that something is going on; it's just not altogether a human being standing here.
And you're not from this country. You're from away from here. And you're from a country that's got a lot of lakes in it: Wisconsin. I just happen to pass some places. You were coming down here, and I knew where you are. You are--you come with somebody. You're--you're here with somebody. It's a man. It's a kinda a heavy set, kinda thinning hair here in front. It's a man's got his head turned to me now, seemingly, I ought to know him. And you're suffering with a growth, and you've lost the sense of smell. You can't smell. Come here.
E-45 O Lord, I pray that You
restore to our sister what Satan has robbed her of. And may Thy mercies
be with her now, as I curse the enemy that has did this thing to her,
and may she be healed this night. I command that Satan leave out of
here, her body, and she be made free by the orders of Jesus Christ, Who
said, "In My Name they shall cast out devils." So you leave her, Satan.
It may seem strange to you, at this time, but you're healed. I have nothing to see where--let you prove to yourself that the sense of smell is to you. But you know that something has happened in your nose. You feel something kind of a funny. Isn't that right? That's odors of the air, and your sense of smelling is here, and you are healed. You can go on your road rejoicing and be well. God bless you. Now, the Lord be blessed and magnified is my humble prayer.
E-46 How do you do, lady. I
suppose that you and I are strangers to each other. Only the Lord Jesus
knows us, for He has fed us, blessed us. 'Tween you and I is the Holy
Spirit, and also just above you is a shadow of darkness, real deep
dark. It's hanging near you. What it is, it's--it's a death. You have
been to a--doctors, yes, and they have a--I see the doctor turn, kind
of a chunky built fellow, as he shakes his head. It's cancer. And he's
give you up; it's eat you up through your system. Come.
Lord Jesus, I condemn this devil, through the vicarious suffering of Jesus Christ and drive death from her, and may life enter into her body this night. And the promise of the Lord Jesus Christ, I lay my hands upon her to confirm this Word to her that He said, "These signs shall follow them that believe. If they lay their hands on the sick, they shall recover."
Lord Jesus, I believe Your Word, and I condemn death that's hanging near her and ask it to leave through Jesus Christ. Amen. Go right to your testimony, thanking God, and praising Him with all your heart go. The Lord be blessed and magnified. Just believe now with all your heart. You can receive just what you ask for.
E-47 You have a nervous trouble, setting there, don't you, lady? Only you have spells of nervousness that makes you feel like that you're losing your mind. Satan sometimes tells you that you've crossed the line. You've practically been nervous all your life. You had a scary sort of that when you were a child, just a little girl. And now, here I see you trying to do something that's a--make beds or something, you get so nervous you have to go set down. But you've been praying. You've been trying to be healed. When this lady was being prayed for just now, you felt something strange come over you. Has that the truth? If it is, raise up your hand. If that's true, I have told you the truth, I never seen you. You're just a lady that's walked up there and set down. I tell you that in the Name of Jesus Christ, you are healed. You go home. You're well. Amen. Have faith in God. Don't doubt. Believe.
E-48 All right, will you bring this boy. Believe now, don't doubt. Have faith in God. And now, everyone be reverent. There's epileptic in the room tonight, I can't find it. But there's a epileptic here, and it's always haunts that, 'cause it's a terrible thing. See? And I--I know that God will heal it, if we'll just let Him tell me where it's at. You see? And it's very disobedient. And now, everyone be reverent, because them spirits go from one to another. You know that. That's Scripture. See? And so now, be reverent.
E-49 And a--bring the boy. How
do you do, young man? You believe me to be God's servant? You believe
the Lord Jesus Christ be the Son of God, and that I'm His servant? Is
that right? And God sent the Lord Jesus to the earth, that He might
give us the desire of our heart, that's free from sin, free from
sickness, free from worrying. Do--we are strangers to one another,
young man, I suppose, are we? We--this is our first meeting time.
You're just a lad, about like my boy standing back there. You're in
deep trouble, young man. You believe me to be His prophet? You got a
handkerchief in your hand to go to the dearest friend you got on earth,
your mother a dying. She's got everything wrong with her. She's got
hardening of the liver. The doctor has announced that no more can be
done. She has leukemia, cancer in the blood stream. You have a little
sick brother at home, too. And you're seeking the baptism of the Holy
Ghost, aren't you, young man? Give me your handkerchief and come near,
O God, I pray for mercy. Let Thy Spirit, O God, come as this young man stands here pleading for mercy. I'm holding this handkerchief in our hands. I pray that it'll heal those who it's intended, and may our brother be rejoicing and happy, know that God has promised. And I condemn the spirit of death that hangs over his mother, and may she get well, and his love ones. And may our brother receive the desire of his heart. I ask this blessing in Jesus Christ's Name. Amen.
Don't fear, young man. You know it's happened, so you can go now, rejoicing and thanking God. God bless you now. All right.
E-50 Oh, how wonderful to trust
in the Lord Jesus. What's the matter, mother, setting there, the kinda
heavy-set lady, looking at me, wiping the tears from her eyes? You
believe me to be His prophet? You want to get over that colon trouble
you're suffering with? Stand up on your feet then.
Lord Jesus, through the Name of Thy great Being, I condemn this devil that's tormenting this woman. May it leave her; her faith has touched You some way, Lord. You turned me to her and showed what was wrong with her. And I pray, God, that her faith will not fail. If You're that kind to her, may her faith reach up just now, and be healed in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen. God bless you, sister. Only have faith. Don't doubt, believe with all your heart.
E-51 How do you do, lady. Do you
believe me to be His servant? And you believe that His Presence, and
now Who you are standing, that the resurrection power of the Lord Jesus
Christ? Now, we are strangers to each other. We've never met. And I
have never seen you, but God knows all about you, doesn't He? He knows
all about me. I'm only getting the conversation with you, like our Lord
did to the woman at the well, and so forth. And you believe that
He's--would make you well? If I tell the truth, I'm talking of the
Scripture. And if I tell the truth, then God will testify of the truth.
And if it's personal, something concerning you... Now, this is the
Truth, the Bible. But now, there may be something in your life, that
the Bible hasn't said nothing about.
Like Jehoshaphat, when he went out and made an alliance with Ahab, went out into the desert and they got in trouble, he said... They had their ark of the covenant with them. They had all the writings of the prophets. They had all the laws with them, but they said, "Isn't there a prophet somewhere that we could consult to find out what's the matter?"
E-52 Now, you're a Christian,
and you're a believer. And that's what makes you a Christian, is a
believer. Now, you believe this Word, but there's something that you
would like a spiritual lift to make your faith come up. You're--you
need a spiritual lift that's right. Now, you are suffering, one thing,
with a kidney trouble. And the next thing you have, you have a--some
sort of a growth. It's in the chest, and you've got a paralyzed nerves
in your face. And that's caused from an accident, like a cab or
something, a taxi cab. Yes. And it's--and it's hurt you in the spine.
You've got that nerve is cut loose here. Is that true? You didn't even
know it. But you knew you had the accident. That's right. There you
are. It is. It's--it's not cancer. It's just a tumor, down in below the
shoulder bone on that side, on your left side.
Almighty God, Who stands here, Who knows your condition, He knows what is true. Do you believe God will move that spine back into it's place, and give you liberation, that pinched nerve? It's... What say...? Come here, just a minute.
Merciful Father, Who created the heavens and the earth, brought all things by Jesus Christ, Thy Son, then bring again, health, to this poor little woman standing here, desperately in need, must have help. God Almighty, I pray that You grant this blessing to her. May the enemy come from her, and may she be well. And with Your servant, I lay my hands upon her; I condemn this enemy, and may it go out of her. In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, come out of her, Satan, for God's glory, the fulfilling of the Word of the Lord Jesus which cannot fail. You are defeated. You have no legal right. Jesus Christ robbed you, and you have no legal right to hold her any more. So leave her, in the Name of the One Who died for her, even our Lord Jesus. Amen.
sister speaks to Brother Branham--Ed.] Certainly. Certainly. I
wouldn't know. I want you to... That... Sister, now what you... I
wouldn't tell you what God for you to do. Let Him commission you on
what to do. I'm just here seeing... I can only say what He told me. He
told me what, was what to you, and that is true. You're going to be
well. I know that. He will tell you what to do after you get back. God
bless you. Go rejoicing.
I wouldn't know when He would tell you, sister. That's something He never told me. He just told me that, and that's all I know how to do. I certainly will do it. God bless you. God bless you. God bless you. Thank you. That's mutually.
Praise be to God. I--and--one thing, I asking... See, if I would tell the woman, I have an idea, but God will tell her. He wouldn't let me speak it, 'cause if I tell her, that's a man. If He telling her, that's God. Always mind what God says. If she's got a relative here, and she would not make it known. You see me, and I'll tell you where she'll be call to. See? But I want God to make it known unto her. All right. That's at least what He said that He would do. All right.
E-54 If you'd ask the Lord Jesus
right now, the back trouble would leave you, and you go home and be
well. Do you believe that? Let's ask Him.
Our heavenly Father, I pray that You'll heal our sister, and may she go from here tonight, well, in Jesus Christ's Name. Amen. Now, go, believing, sister, you'll be well. God bless you. Let's say thanks be to God.
E-55 Are you believing, sister,
with all your heart?
That colored lady setting right out there, you're suffering with arthritis. But she's suffering with headaches. And you believe the Lord Jesus is going to make you well too, lady, setting out there. And you believe the Lord Jesus makes you well with this arthritis? Lord God, in the Name of Jesus Thy Son I condemn these diseases, and ask that they leave the people in the Name of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Amen.
Now, all right, it's gone from you, sister. Now, go rejoicing, and saying thank you, Lord Jesus. That's right. Now, you realize how greater you can walk? Now, come back this way again. Come back. Raise your feet like this, you see. Like this. You're--you're knees, bending your knees. See? That's where it was at, is in your knees. Wasn't it? See? All right. You're healed. See? Amen. Let's say, "Praise be to God."
E-56 Do you believe me as God's
prophet? You want to get over the female trouble? Raise up your hand,
say, "I accept You, Lord Jesus."
Lord Jesus, I lay my hands on her to fulfill Your Word, and ask that this demon leave her in Jesus Christ's Name. Amen. God bless you, sister. Could I talk to you away from the microphone, just a moment? Over here. [Brother Branham speaks with the sister away from the microphone--Ed.]
E-57 Nothing immorally, just--would you wait just a minute, lady? That... She might have friends here, thinking there's something I didn't want to know. It was just something that taken place in a time, that only her and God alone, was standing there to see it, and is it the truth, lady? Exactly the truth. Where it was standing, and I couldn't say it before a mixed audience. I seen a vision what was taking place, and I called her over here to aside to tell her. And there was no one, nowhere around; she hasn't told anyone or nothing about it, right at the place, and when it happened, that was taking place. Is that right, lady? If that's right, wave your hand so the people know. See? She's all right. She's healed. She--she's all right. God has blessed her.
E-58 Been feeling a little
better today, haven't you? You're setting down there last night,
believing. Wasn't that right? You were healed last night, sister. Your
faith made your whole of that...?...
You believe God will take that stiffness out of you? You--He has. You won't have to slip out of bed in the morning on one side. You're healed now from that. Go on across the floor, rejoicing. Amen. Let's say, "Praise be to God."
E-59 Do you believe that the
Lord Jesus is going to help you in this time that you're worried about?
You've afraid that this baby won't be borned right, because you're
afraid you're going to lose it. Isn't that right? I'm not reading your
mind. But God is here Who knows all things. You're afraid of losing
that. But let's ask God, and God will keep that, and may it be borned a
lovely child. May God bless you, while I bless you in His Name.
Lord Jesus, may all things be all right for our sister, who has faith to walk up before this audience tonight, confessing her faith in the power of Almighty God. And may it be normal and everything well. I bless her for this purpose. In the Name of Jesus Christ, Thy Son. Amen. God bless you, sister.
The lady has been afraid of a miscarriage, and the baby has been--never moved. And when I took her hand, just now, she jumped and grabbed me, she said, "My baby leaped for the first time, just now..." Have faith.
E-60 Our Lord Jesus Christ, Who
rules and reigns supremely. There's nothing can beset Him. He's Alpha,
Omega, the Beginning and the End, He that was, which is now, and shall
come, the Root and Offspring of David, the Morning Star. There is
nothing, no place, no time, no how, can ever stand before Him.
Do you want to get over that eczema, setting there, lady, with that dark dress on, setting right down there, that breaking out, eczema? If you believe God will heal you, He will do it. Do you believe He will? Do you believe He will make you well. God bless you, my sister. It'll leave you.
E-61 The lady, setting there
next to you, is worried about her boy. He's going to go under a
operation this next Saturday. Stand up just a minute; I want to pray
for your boy.
Lord Jesus, I condemn death that hangs with that boy. Guide that physician's hand, and may the boy come through well. In Jesus Christ's Name.
E-62 How many in here at this
time, wants God to bless them and heal them right now, would you raise
your hand? Hold your hands up to the Creator. My strength is gone,
friends; I'm just can't hardly stand here. And I feel my manager
touching my back, which means that I must go.
Bow your heads. O Lord, no disease, You said, that any time could stand before the prayer of faith. And I ask Thee, just now, as this strength of the pulling of the Holy Spirit making virtue and strength go, I ask that the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ now in the Names of Him Who gave the promise, I condemn every sickness in this building. Every person with a disease, every blind person, every crippled person, every deaf person, every sick child... And Satan, you have no rights, to say any more, you are exposed right here from this platform. You're legal rights are gone. You're day is finished. The Church of the living God is moving up into realms of faith, and you know that you are defeated, and have been. You're only a bluff. And you've bluffed the people long enough. Now, as the Church of the living God, we take charge over thee, by the commandment of our Lord Jesus Christ, and I as His servant, along with the church adjure thee, by the living God, and His Son Jesus, that you come out of every person here now. Go out of them. You are defeated and lost the battle. In Jesus Christ's Name.
