Featured Questions & Answers

At what age may children partake of Communion, and how does one know when they are ready?

“Brother Huckstra here, I... He's been a bosom friend of mine for years. I remember the first time I met Brother Huckstra. In Indianapolis, Indiana, there was a boy dying with polio in the iron lung. And I went into the upper room of the man's house and prayed. The Lord came down and give a vision and said to--what was the matter with the boy--to take him the communion, because one time he'd been refused to take the communion on account of his age. And they had no communion at this house, so I went to Brother Huckstra's, and he furnished the communion. I take it and give it to the boy in the iron lung and pronounced the blessings of God on him and the boy's living in Indianapolis today. We thank the good Lord for His mercy for that.” [Do You Now Believe 54-0725]
“As we would have to hurry right straight to the text now on account of communion service. And that's our part. Every man now, and woman, boy or girl, that calls on the Name of Jesus, fix your hearts now for preparation for the Lord's supper. Oh, it's a wonderful thing. God said, Jesus Christ said, "If you... He that eats My flesh, drinks My Blood, has Everlasting Life, and I'll raise him up at the last day. And he that eateth not, has no part with Me. And he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eats and drinks damnation to himself." What a time. Now, let's prepare for this great glorious event in a few moments. One of the greatest that, I think, we have in the tabernacle is the communion night.” [Jubilee Year 54-1003e]
“May God help us tonight, friends, as we're coming to the Communion table to remember that. No matter what outward we do, how many good things we do... You say, "Well, Brother Branham, I go to church. I try to live the best that I can." Good. There's nothing against that, brother. "I have spoke with tongues, Brother Branham. I've shouted in the Spirit." That's good. But that's not what I'm talking about, brother. That still isn't it. That isn't what I'm speaking of. I'm talking of that still small voice, that something rich and royal. That I used to see in the old mammies, when come down the aisle here years ago, the tears streaming from their cheeks when one sinner boy would raise up to come to the altar. Today, I make a call, and see a boy come, they set and pop their chewing gum. What's the matter? He... We're lost the hear of that. What have you heard? What hearest thou?” [What Does Thou Here 59-0301e]
“And she said, "Well," said, "I don't know what to ask, Brother Branham." She said... She had two teen-age boys. And talk about renegades, they were, and so, just giving her heartaches all the time, poor little widowed mother. And so, her husband, I married she to her husband. And they were... Her husband had gotten killed on a tractor. And those boys had just gone wild. And she said, "Well, the salvation of my two boys." I said, "I give you those two boys in the Name of Jesus Christ." And both of them fell across her lap, come to Christ. Now, Brother Banks Woods is somewhere setting here in this building, tonight, that was present to see that happen. Both them boys are fine. They taken feet-washing all the time, communion at church, and when we're taking feet-washing, the one that's washing the feet, we lay our hands over on them and pray. That little fellow the other night, about fourteen years old, our pastor, Brother Neville, he had his hands on him, praying for him, the cutest little thing.” [Only Believe 61-0427]
“And now in dedication of children, many of the people, the Methodists sprinkle them. And--and I think they have their first communion in the Catholic church, or Lutheran, along about twelve years old, and kind of a--a baptismal service when they're born. I--I think the babies are sprinkled. And--and I think that split the Nazarene from the Methodist, many years ago, in infant baptism. I think that's right, Brother Brown. I--I--I believe that that was what split the Methodist church and the Nazarene, 'cause the Nazarene didn't accept infant baptism. But to us, here at the tabernacle, if we are going to stay with what the Bible said, there is no place in the Bible where they ever did sprinkle anybody, let alone a baby, not even an adult. But they... The Bible says, the only place of our Bible for the children, "They brought infants to Jesus, and He... that He might put His hands upon them and bless them." And He said, "Suffer little children to come to Me, and forbid them not, for such is the Kingdom of Heaven." [Standing In The Gap 63-0623m]
 “And her boys was even snickering and laughing. And she said, "The greatest desire I have is the salvation of my two sons."  I said, "I give them to you, in the Name of Jesus Christ," and there they went.  And they been faithful in this church, with communion, them little fellows sitting there washing feet with the man, and things like that. We all are witness of that. She had a real choice. Her mother has to die, so does she, all of them. But what she asked will be Eternal, and the salvation of her children. That was the third time it happened.” [Look Away To Jesus 63-1229e]
“No man, no person, no woman, boy, girl, I don't care who he is, is fit to go in the pulpit, or even claim to be a Christian, without being filled with the Holy Ghost. You have no right to the Lord's supper, or any communion, feet-washing, or anything, until you've been cleansed by the Holy Fire of God. No man has a right to preach unless you, like Moses, meets Him out there on that sacred grounds, that Pillar of Fire hanging there, where he knows where he's at.” [The Future Home 64-0802]
