56-0407 - Philadelphia Church, Chicago, IL,
L-65 Now, awhile ago when those sinners raised their hands, accepted Christ... And listen, sinner friend, as soon as the healing service is over, maybe Mr. Boze, our dear brother, maybe he might ask you to come up here, and stand around the altar, and pray. I--I wish you would do that personally. Just come and pray, and say, "Thank You, Lord Jesus, You've accepted me." But say, "Thank You, Lord Jesus for saving me." And just have a good prayer here. See? And tell Him how You love Him. And then go out and serve Him with a heart full of love and gratitude and He will bless you. Don't you believe that? All right.
L-66 Now, you just be in prayer. Down in the pit, down in here, you...?... be down in there wants God to heal you, just raise--just believe with all your heart, and God will surely grant it to you. Anywhere...
Wished I was the healer. No, I--I take that back. I--I'm glad I'm not, 'cause it's hard tell what I would do with it. It--it's best for Him to have it, not...?... See? But you know what He's done? He's done done your healing and handed it to you, if you could just have faith enough to go get it. It's there. When you ask anything, believe you receive it. You shall have it. So that's very fine.
Now, brother, that's all right. Now, we love the Lord Jesus. It happens to be tonight, a man is to start the prayer line off tonight. And we're happy to have this man standing here. He comes to proclaim that he's got faith in God. And he comes not for that, and then he comes this way, knowing that he believes me, as His servant. For what if he would be standing here as a hypocrite, or anything, and penned it. You know what would happen? Perhaps what he come saying, he'd take. How many knows that those things happen, that's been in my meeting? Oh, I've seen them stand in the prayer lines; they'd have to pack them out. I've seen them drop on the platform where they were standing. I've seen epileptics...?... and run through screaming and jumping, throwing their hands and everything else. I've seen them walk right there and drop there cold dead as could be. That's right. We're not playing church. [John 15:7]
L-67 You remember that night at that--over there in Toronto, Canada, when that minister come to the platform, and he thought it was a mental telepathy. So he said, "What it is, if the person writes what they got on the prayer card," now imagine, writing their sin on...?... All right. Said, "Then he transfers it to... The usher picks up the prayer card, holds the prayer card, and meditates, and transfers it to them." And he come in the prayer card--in there with a whole lot of stuff on his prayer card, he had, TB, and a lot of things.
He come up there; I said, "There's nothing wrong with you."
He said, "Oh, look. Look at my prayer card."
I said, "It's nothing to do with it. You're here trying to find out something. You think it's telepathy. Now, the disease that you put on that prayer card, is on your body." That's right. And when he did, I got a letter here about two years ago from him. He said, "Oh, Brother Branham, come to me."
I said, "You see that man setting up there in the balcony with the red tie on, blue suit? You and him set together last night a table, had a green cover over it. And a woman set over in the corner. And you said that you'd come prove that it was mental telepathy."
And that man said, "That's the God Almighty truth. That's right. That's right."
And the man grabbed me by the pant's leg, he said, "Pray for me, Brother Branham."
I said, "That's between you and God now. It's out of my hands. He's done spoke it. That's you now." And the man's laying bedfast to this day.
How about up here in New York, when that guy stood there trying to hypnotize me, make me bark like a dog? They had been around there hypnotism. And the Holy Spirit looked around and said, "You son of the devil," said, "cursed be you." And he's paralyzed. That's right. Find out sometime. You see?
How many remembers reading the book, that maniac that come to the platform that night? Ask the police force up there, see what happened. See? It's God, friends. Wake up. Believe.
L-68 Now, this man standing here by my side, I've never seen him. I guess we're strangers are we, brother? We are strangers to each, never seen each other in life. Now, just so that you would know, no contact with the man, none whatever... Almighty God knows that. And now, if the Holy Spirit will reveal what's wrong with the man, or what he's here for, or something another... I don't know. And you'd think I would say that standing here? Then, will you all believe that Jesus raised... Well, what it be? Just...
If Jesus was back there in the New Testament, and when they seen Him do that, they said, "This is the sign of the Messiah." How many knows that? Now, raise your hand. The Bible said that's the sign of the Messiah, when He talked to the woman and to the man, both man and woman.
L-69 Now, if He does the same thing tonight, isn't that the sign of the Messiah?
Now, I don't know him. But I just want to talk to him, like our Lord talked to the woman at the well. Well, now, sir, lots of times in the old countries down there, and people who can't speak English, and so forth, I have an awful with them. But when someone can answer me back, well then, it's good because it's English speaking (You see?), and I can--can talk back to them. But our...
You know our lovely Lord Jesus, that you and I together are to stand in His Presence someday and give an account for everything that we've done in this life (That's right.) unless it's confessed and under the Blood, when we go... Then we'll go in the rapture. Praise be to God.
L-70 Now, the Lord Jesus Whose Presence is... He's omnipresent; He's everywhere. He's always everywhere. But of course, you--you are a Christian; you're a Christian man. And 'course, I don't know what's wrong with you. I have no way of knowing that. But unless God would tell me what was wrong... And if God can tell me what's wrong with you, then there--you'll be the judge of that; you know whether that's right or not.
But if the audience can still hear my voice, the man is here for somebody else, and it's a woman. And she's not here at the building, either, 'cause there's no respond to it in the building, nowhere. She isn't here, sir, the person that you're standing for. That woman, I see you toget... It's your wife. That's right. And I see her at the table and not able to eat things. She's got a--a stomach trouble. And I see you taking her time after time in and out of a hospital, or doctor... It's a hospital in the front, back and forth to a hospital. And the doctors don't even know what's wrong with the woman.
L-71 Now, here's what's wrong with her. It's a gurgitation of nerves that's in her stomach that's causing this serious trouble that she's having. And if you'll go tell her, and that hand that you're holding to God lay upon her, when you get there, and speak the Name of the Lord Jesus, and tell her not to doubt, she won't have to go to the hospital no more. Almighty God, grant this in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen. God bless you, my brother. Now, you let me hear from you. God bless you.
Do you love the Lord Jesus? [Congregation says, "Amen."--Ed.]
That should be convincing to any one that it's not me. It's Him. If you can believe, all things are possible.
This is not Joyce Sims, setting here with the white dress on, is it right, a little white coat on, a young lady, who's sitting next to that man? No, no. That's the lady next to her there, that's trying to get a prayer through to God. That is right, isn't it, lady, you with the blue coat on? Uh-huh.
Well, you believe and the arthritis will leave you, and you can go home and be well. Amen. Amen.
Have faith in God.
What done that? Jesus Christ. What done it? She just started to believe, and all at once, I seen Something here stand before me. It was a woman that looked like she was laming and having it in her hands and shoulders, and things. And I seen her the way she was trying to hold her--her dishes when she was washing them. And I wondered where it was at. And I looked around, and I seen a lady, and it looked like Mrs. Sim's daughter that lives in Zion. But I knowed if it was, I'd see some other time, 'cause I knowed her. But It... The Light stood over this other lady. Now, it's gone from her. Her faith did it, exactly. [Mark 9:23]
L-72 How do you do, sir. Now, sir, you and I are strangers to each other. But Jesus knows us both. And someday we're going to have to stand in His Presence and give account for our--for all that we have done. See? If you'll believe with all your heart... Wished I could do something for you to help you in your trouble. I--I'm a man, as you are and one of God's creatures, just as you are. And if I could do anything to help you, I--I'd be glad to do it. See? I can't do it. And now, if you're seeking healing for you, or somebody else, or--or something, that I don't know. You--you know I don't know that. But one thing that I could say to you, whatever your desire is and feeling your welcome spirit, being a Christian believer, then if you will accept that Jesus has did for you, what you're asking Him to do... See? You will believe it? You will? God bless you.
L-73 Now, you've had trouble for quite awhile. You was hurt. And it was the insides of you tore loose. And you had some sort of an intestinal trouble, swelling up, and I see you a larger man than you what you are. You've lost lots of weight. And then you've come down from many, many pounds you've dropped down. Not only this, but let me tell you something. I see a dark shadow follow you till about five or six years ago, and you become a Christian, at that time. [The man says, "That's right. I accepted Christ in Moody church, six years ago, or about five and a half. And a twinkling of an eye. My wife was only here, she could tell you. The drink and the tobacco habit, which I had had for twenty years, fell away like that."--Ed.]
Well, go believing and your sickness will do the same thing, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. God bless you, my brother. Amen.
Darkness, then light, death to life... Believe the Lord Jesus. Amen. Do you believe Him?
L-74 I can't heal your nose, sister, trouble you have in your nose, you're praying about it setting on the end of the seat out there, looking this way. But Jesus can. He has. Do you believe He has? Then raise up your hand. All right. Go, and it'll leave you now. God bless you.
L-75 How do you do? Do you believe all that you've seen, hear, the Bible, and the Bible is the Word of God, and It's alive, and It acts all the time just the same? Do you believe that? You do? Well, we don't know each other; as far as I know, we don't know each. 'Course, now, we see that you got glasses on; there's something wrong with your eyes. Like if I'd say, a person setting in a wheelchair is crippled, anyone would know that. See? And they know there's something wrong with your eyes from your glasses. That may be what you're here for; I don't know. God does. But if the Lord Jesus, to you and to I, will act in the same way He did to the Samaritan woman, would you be willing to go and say, like, not, come see me, you see? She said, "Come see a Man Who told me," what was wrong with her. But you'd say, "Jesus Christ was the One that done it." Would you do that? You would? You'd say, "The Messiah surely is alive today." We'd say wouldn't we? All right. May the Lord grant it, sister, your desire. Now, I shall take up my parable to go to meet Him to see what He will tell me.
Yes, you've got weakness, lady's trouble, and you got a growth, and the growth is in your mouth. And they don't even know what it is. That's right. Is Messiah alive tonight? Then come here. He said these words, "If they lay their hands on the sick, they shall recover."
Now, Father, this I do to my sister in the Name of Jesus Christ, that You'll heal her body and make her one of the testimonies in her neighborhood. Amen. God bless you, sister. Believe with all your heart and receive. All right.
"If thou canst believe," said Jesus, "all things are possible." [John 4:29], [Mark 16:18]
L-76 You're--you're a wonderful set of people. I don't believe you can find any more faith, is what I mean to--to as what we'd would call... I'll explain it tomorrow, the levels of faith (You see?), what human faith is and what Divine faith is. One of them is the human faith, and the other one is Divine faith; but humanly speaking, you're one of the finest audiences as I ever spoke to. That's right. If you could only break through that little crust there. It just divides right there. Just a little ravel, if you could just go over it. You'll go from the tributary out into the ocean. See? You know what I mean? Just believe. Just--just don't try to make it so orthodox, what all you have to do, and what all... No, just be like a little girl, or a little boy that's reaching up to--to daddy's hands to get the lollipop.
He said, "Here, son, this is yours." Just--just like that, believe it. It'll happen.
Howdy do, lady. Are we strange to each other? And God knows us both, doesn't He? And if He can... If you knowing that I don't know you, and know nothing about you, well then, Something would have to reveal to me, or I--the only way I would know, is that right?
L-77 I seen a white woman standing here at this time, setting there suffering with the gallbladder trouble, you believe Jesus Christ makes you well, sister? You... The little red coat on, got your finger up like that, you believe? That's a horrible thing, isn't it, 'causes those conditions there in your...? Now, if you can believe, you can be made well, and God will bless you and heal you. May He grant it is my sincere prayer. Your faith come to Him.
L-78 You're all upset about something. That is right. And you're got a nervous condition, all upset and nervous. Then I see a couple; it's a man and a woman, and that's your father and mother. And you're wanting me to pray for them. Now, do you believe? Then go, find it just the way you believe it'll be. It'll be that way. You believe it? God grant to you, my sister, through Jesus' Name.
If you can believe... Now, I would ask you, it's getting a little late, but just be reverent just a--one or two more people if you will, or something. See? It don't necessarily have to be, but just each one, it's... It doesn't... It--it should help every one of you. Remember, that's just God's attitude towards every one of you. Don't you believe it?
L-79 Now, looky here. Can't you see This? Oh, I wished you could. You can see something physically. Was you the one was prayed for just here, setting right here, the man on the front seat? The lady right behind you, she has her head bowed. She's been praying for a long time. She made contact with God just a few moments ago. You look in her eyes, there'd be water in her eyes. Certainly. She believes that God's going to let her get well, with that heart trouble, and make her well, don't you, lady? That's right.
See what I say? See, you don't need to be up here. You don't need a prayer card. Her faith touched Him just the same as the blind man. Said, "Believe, all things are possible to them that believe." If you can believe, all things are all right. [Mark 9:23]
L-80 The lady hasn't raised her head. Her faith pulled several times. I looked at it, then I seen the Light move and stand right over her. You realize I'm looking in two worlds now, at you in another one, another dimension. There It stood over her. I want her, while she's got her hand up, you was pressing hard tonight, wasn't you, sister, trying to humble yourself to receive healing? And you was praying, "God, let this be my night." If that's true, then you wave your hand back and forth. If that's... See, there she is.
How would... I could hear way back in a distance, like it was in another world, a praying that same prayer, that I just told you. There she is. She's healed now. See? Her faith did it.
"If thou canst believe," the Bible said, "all things are possible." [Mark 9:23]
L-81 My colored brother over there, got a rupture, haven't you? If you believe that Jesus Christ make you well, setting over there on the end of that little row, and believe that Jesus Christ would healed you, you can have it.
The lady next to you is praying for her eyes. She's got trouble with her eyes. If you believe that Jesus Christ will make you well, you can have what you ask for. Would you believe it? Would you accept it? Then God bless you. All right. God bless you, lady.
L-82 Here's a lady. Are we strange to each other, sister? We're strangers to each other. Here's a woman, looks, young lady. I've never seen her in my life. But do you know, God knows who she is and all about her? You know God knows the hour she was born. You know God knew her before she was born. That's right.
Now, if you'll just wait just a moment. Don't move around. I know it's hard. Tomorrow you have to get up early, go to church some of you. But just let me have this one patient, while you set real quiet, if you will. Let me talk to the lady. Now, be real reverent so that you'll know that Christ's attitude is just the same to each one of you.
L-83 Now, lady. I wish to just take some time to talk to you. And really, the way the gift of God was supposed to be, was not to come out like this and weakening myself down. Soon, I'll have it fixed different, where I can get to place to where I won't be this a way. Yet it'll be far beyond this, far beyond. For God has did this for His people.
And I want to ask you something. Now, don't be afraid. That isn't to hurt you; that's to help you. See? You're conscious that Something's near you. That's right, isn't it? Here. That's Him. Maybe it wouldn't be good for me to talk too long to you. But may I say this: That your trouble that you're here for is a gland trouble. That's right. And that's in your face. True, isn't it? That is right. I see somebody near your house, near your dwelling. See, they call you Irene (That's right.) Martin. That's right. You live on a street called Evergreen, or something like that. That's right, isn't it? About 1820. That's right. Now, go believing, sister. God, grant this woman's request in Jesus' Name. Amen.
If thou canst believe all things are possible.
L-84 What if I didn't say one word to you, sister, just say, "I'll put my hands on you and pray for you," would you believe?
Dear heavenly Father, I pray that You'll grant this woman's request and make her well, for Jesus' sake. Amen. God bless you, sister. Go, receiving that what you've ask for.
Would you believe with all your heart? Gets pretty hard to get up sometime, but arthritis is a bad thing. It hurts, and aches, and draws, and pains, and... But did you know Jesus is the only cure there is for arthritis or anything else? You believe that? With all your heart you believe it, do you? Well, then may the Lord grant it to you, as I pray.
Our heavenly Father, I pray that You'll heal the woman. And let Your mercy rest deeply upon her in the Name of the Lord Jesus. Amen. Now, you believe with all your heart? 'Course, you don't feel it now; it's--it's gone now. But, and it'll stay gone. Just keep praising Him, and it'll stay away from you. God bless you.
L-85 Anyone else out there? Receive the same thing. If you just believe. Have faith in God. Don't doubt.
You have a lady's trouble, don't you, lady? Right there. Do you believe with all... That's right. If you believe with all your heart, you can have your healing. God bless you.
It's just moving from one to another. I wish you could really believe.
Howdy do, sir. Now, be reverent. There's something here, maybe. No, I thought the man was deaf. But he isn't, he just can't speak English. He's a Finn, Finnish. Finn, Finland. Jumalan rauhaa. Now, the man cannot speak English. He's Finnish. But I'll make signs to him what's wrong, if God will tell me. You, preacher. Now, it's over. Jumalan rauhaa. Kiitos. Well, let's say, praise the Lord. [Congregation says, "Praise the Lord."--Ed.] Do you now believe?
That's Him. He's here. Who? Jesus, Son of God, King of kings, Lord of lords. Will you believe? You believe that He will hear my prayer from right here out to you? How many will believe that? Just hold your hand.

56-0408E - Lane Tech High School, Chicago, IL,
L-55 Now, since He has resurrected... You said, "Brother Branham, that woman touched His garment when He was in a corporal body." I want to ask you something. Does the Bible in the Book of Hebrews teach that He is the High Priest that can be touched by the feeling of our infirmity? Is that right? Certainly, the Bible teaches that. How you going to touch Him then with the feeling of your infirmity? Just believe Him. Then He, and as the Holy Spirit, His Divine Agent that's in us, He reveals it back just like He did then. Isn't that perfectly harmony with the Scripture and the way the Script... How many believe that that would be according to the Bible, according to the working of it--Bible? The Lord bless you.
All right. How many we got... I see we got quite a group down there now, have you Brother Wood? All right. While they are lining the rest of them up, for time's sake, we'll pray for the sick.
Now, if the Holy Spirit does anoint, I don't know that He will, I'm going to ask you to do me a favor. Will you just set still for a few moments, look this a way, and pray? I'm awfully tired tonight (See?), awfully tired. And I've just come from one meeting the month after month, and I've got nearly a month more to go before I have one day of rest. See? And I--I--I pray that you'll help me tonight, won't you? Just be seated; keep the kiddies near you; just set still a little bit. They won't let me stay long. [Hebrews 4:15]
L-56 If it can be proven to you that Jesus is alive, then you know every promise He give is right here with you in Jesus. That's right. So now, remember, it's all praises to Jesus Christ the Son of God. Let's say that together. "All praises to Jesus Christ the Son of God."
Now, for His Name's sake, and for His Word's sake, and for His people's sake, I now take this audience under my control in the Name of Jesus Christ. Be reverent and watch this way, please.
All right, sir. Is... Brother Wood, would you... Is this the lady here? All right. Now, as the lady is walking up to me, as far as I know, she's a stranger to me. I don't know her. She's just a little lady standing there, watching, looking at me. She's the first one in the prayer line. She was given a prayer card today, or--or whenever they give them out, and she was just called up here, the first one.
Are we strangers to each other, lady? We don't know each other, and you know I know nothing of you, have no way of knowing nothing of you. But now if Jesus Christ has risen from the dead, then if you were standing here and He were standing here with this suit on that He gave me, now if--if you're sick and wanting healing, He'd tell you He did it when He died for you. But now the only thing that He could do, after He's already--already paid the price for your salvation and healing there's nothing more He can do about it, but just you have to accept it, isn't that right? How many ministers is in the building knows that that's Scriptually, let's see, preachers. Just look at the ministers, knows that's right. It, there's nothing we can do, It's already done.
L-57 But He's sent into the church, first what? Apostles, prophets, teachers, evangelists, pastors, is that right? All for the perfecting of the church. Now He might do something here, if He didn't catch you with the Word, He might catch you through prophecy. And then I, myself...?... not very much of a minister because I have not much education, but I have been given a divine gift as a seer that foresees things. And if He'll let me know what you're standing here for, would you accept what it is knowing that I know nothing of you? How many in the audience would believe on Him, just as you would if you were sitting at the same well where He sat with the Samaritan woman? Let's see your hands: would believe the resurrection, that--that real. This ought to settle it. The lady knows herself and she's raised her hand that I know her not, she knows me not, and here we are both together, knowing not each other. But on the platform is the Holy Spirit.
Now Jesus, the way He did it, He talked to the woman at the well just a little while. And then He found out where her trouble was. And when He did, He--He told her. And she said He must be the Me--Messiah, or He must be a prophet, the Messiah when He come He would do it.
Now, if He repeats the same thing tonight, then He is risen from the dead. That's--that's all you have to know. If He's raised from the dead and here with us, that ought to settle it forever on Him. It ought to. Two thousand years, a man died two thousand years ago and is still alive here tonight. And that--that settles it. See? Then our religion is not in vain; it's true.
The lady, if the audience can hear me, can hear my voice, she seems to be kind of like dimming, because between her and I stands that Light that's moved in between us. The lady is conscious that something's going on. If that's right, lady, raise up your hand. You're conscious that something's going on. It's the--that Angel of God, Whose picture was taken and is in Washington, is between us now. And He's to... If I can only yield myself to Him, and He will anoint me till the woman's life will come before me, then I will speak it.
L-58 Yes, I see the woman. And she's bothered with a--a nervousness. She's real extremely nervous. I see her going about and kind of holding her hands. She's upset about something; there's something got her disturbed. That is right. And you have a--a growth that you are disturbed about. And that growth is hidden from the naked eye here, because it's your lip, inside. That's right.
And you're very upset. You are--you're... Right on your heart, you are a mother. And you've got a--a child that you're praying for, boy that's... The boy has a condition in his bowels. I think the doctor says that is ulcerate in his bowels. And the boy's unsaved. He isn't a Christian, and you want him prayed for, and you're holding a handkerchief in your hand for that purpose, for me to pray over it. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD.
L-59 Now, sister, you are... Is that true? You believe? Not me, Him. Jesus. Then He's here. Then He's not dead. Then the same One from Galilee is here tonight, right here with you. Come, sister.
Our kind heavenly Father, Who shows mercy to the millions, and in this last days when the Light is breaking forth, the same Jesus that come and brought Light. The Bible says, "They that set in darkness, great Light has come to them." In the Orients in the early days, and those in the west, now, the evening time, great Light has come. What? The same Light is shining again, the resurrected Lord Jesus as He promised. And You're here tonight. And we thank Thee. And we pray that You'll grant to this dear woman every request that she's asked for, in Jesus Christ's Name. Amen.
Don't fear now, sister. Everything will be all right for you. It turned Light around you; it will be all right. Amen.
Just believe. Now, you don't have to be up here. You just have faith once and really believe it and see whether you do or not. Just believe with all your heart. [Matthew 4:16]
L-60 All right, lady, I suppose you and I being strange to each other, but the Lord Jesus knows both of us. And He knows all about you, and He knows all about me. And He's--He's the God of eternity. And of course, I have no way of knowing how sick you are, or what your sickness is, or even what you're here for. And, but God does. And if He will tell me what's on your heart now, what's on your heart now, will you accept it and believe it with all you--the--that's within you?
Now, you're standing for someone else too. That's right. It's a son too. And it has something wrong with the chest, chest trouble. That's right. And--and it is dark; he's shadowed. He isn't a Christian. That's right. He's a sinner. And you're wanting him saved. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD. Come here, sister.
Our kind heavenly Father, grant to this poor mother tonight the deep desires of her heart as she's standing here, knowing that she's standing in Your Presence, not the Presence of her brother, making her this way. And I pray that You'll grant the request that she asks for, in Jesus Christ's Name. Amen. God bless you, my sister.
If thou canst believe, all things are possible to them that believe. Do you believe? Now, be real reverent.
God bless that poor soul. May His eternal blessings rest upon her. [Mark 9:23]
L-61 What you scared about, sister? A little bit skeptic, aren't you? The little lady setting there in the row, you just... I wouldn't feel that way. No. Just be reverent. See? It's nothing... The thing might come upon you, evil. You believe with all your heart, little lady.
Come. Do you believe the Lord Jesus Christ, lady? I don't know you. He knows you; I don't. This is a very time again, as Jesus and the Samaritan woman being two races. Why then, Jesus said, "No, that there was no difference." God made all men. And our skin colors had nothing to do with it.
But I see you move away from me, lady. Yes, it's somebody else you're praying for: your husband. That's right. He's not here. And he's a... Oh, he's a dope fiend. And you're... I see him; and that's terrible... I will say no more, but you understand. Come, let me have this handkerchief.
L-62 O Jesus, Son of God, I pray for mercy to be granted, Lord, and bless this poor soul that stands here now. And bless that one who is in wait. I pray that the evil will leave, and that the man will be delivered through Jesus Christ's Name. Amen.
Will you agree with me, lady, upon this, that it shall be done? God bless you. Then you shall have what you've asked for. Go and may God's peace be with you.
How do you do, lady. You believe with all your heart? And I am not able to help you... Now, there was a lady appeared right here, that I... is a white woman. Everybody just... She's setting right here, a gray coat on. Got something in your throat you are studying about, aren't you, sister? Oh, I... it's--it's a lady that I know; I--I didn't know that. Mrs., I forget what your name is, but I know you. That's right. You've contacted God, lady. God bless you. You're scared of cancer. That's right.
L-63 The lady next to you has something wrong with her wrist. You know, His... The Angel of God... The lady setting right behind, with a red tam on, has arthritis. You see what I mean. That's right, isn't it, lady? See there? You see?
You all lay your hands on each other, there, each... O God, our heavenly Father, we rebuke this evil now, and pray that in Christ's Name that it shall be taken from them each, and they'll be made well, and glorify Thee. Amen.
Don't doubt; just believe. Look this a way and believe; that's all I ask you to do.
L-64 And now, lady, we'll... Sir, Jesus Christ can heal you. If you'll believe that God will take that TB away from you, it'll go. Do you believe it? All right. As you have believed, so will it be to you. Amen.
Now, I believe that God will help you, lady, if you'll only believe. Will you believe with me now? Will every colored person in here believe, if God will... This lady, first, I want to ask you: I don't know you, do I, lady? I've never seen you, know nothing about you, not a thing. If every colored brother, sister, in the room here, that here is one of your sisters standing here, not only your sister, but our sister too, but I mean of your own color. And remember, who helped bear the cross for Jesus? He understands. Now, He, the same Jesus that went up to Golgotha that Simon helped Him pack the cross, He's alive here tonight.
L-65 See, He's just in another world. You don't see Him with your eyes, because... There's television pictures coming through here. You don't even see them. And He's beyond that dimension. But He's here just the same. See?
Now, look this a way, lady. I want every one of you now to receive your healing, if you will, right while... Now, there was a lady up appeared here before me. Just a moment; she's praying somewhere. I'll find her by the grace of God. She touched Him then. That's right. It weakened me. Here she sets, right here, right here. Colon trouble. That's right. Certainly. And your colon is a fallen colon, isn't it, lady? Raise your hand up if that is right. There you are. See? Don't weary; it's over.
Just have faith. Seems like It's moving in the audience more than It is here at the platform. It's your faith a doing these things, friends. Believe God.
L-66 Now, to you, lady. You're very nervous (That's right.), very nervous. And you get those nervous spells and just comes on you spasmodically like. Been bothering you for some time, hasn't it? Sometimes gets you scared, like you don't want to go places and things. It--it scares you. I see a dark shadow... You started from the house and turned and went back. See? It was a scare. Then you're got a terrible hurting in your body, which is up in your chest part. That's right. You believe that; you know that is the truth.
And then you have got a--an--a lump, or a knot, or a growth. And that growth is on your right arm, covered over. That's right, isn't it? You believe Him now? You--will you accept Him for your healing now? Will the rest of you, my colored friends, accept Him the same time? All right. Come here, sister.
Dear God, Who raised up Jesus from the dead, and has given us the privilege of having fellowship with Him, and His Word, tonight to see the manifestation of His Spirit. And now as You did there, Lord, at--the--the Samaritan woman that day at the well, I pray You'll do likewise for this sister and for all those who are setting near now of her kind. Pray that You'll heal them, Lord, every one right now. I condemn the sickness of their bodies, in Jesus Christ's Name. Amen.
L-67 How could you doubt? You couldn't, could you? Now, just go, be happy. See? I want you just be happy. You see, if you believe it, then you've got to act like you believe it. You see? If you do believe it, you will act like you believe it. Everything will be all right for you. Don't weary. See? Don't weary; just believe with all your heart.
Now, you believe all over--all you colored people believe that Jesus heals you then? Amen. That's fine.
Now, here's just a child. I don't know the child. I never seen her in my life. We're strangers to one another, as far as I know. Is that right, lady? Are we strangers to each other? I don't know you. Now, she's a white girl. How many you white people, if Jesus Christ will reveal what she's standing there for, and tell her what her sickness is, or whatever it is, like He does to the others, will you accept Jesus as your Healer and know? Do it.
L-68 All right. May the Lord grant it. Now, sister, I can... Now, that won't hurt you. There's one thing I can say now, that you're a Christian. And you just recently become a Christian, just have become a Christian. But you are--you're not from this country. You're--you're not an American; you're a Canadian. You come from Canada. And I see you coming in a green car, or I believe, like a Mercury, I believe it is. And you--you are praying for a man that's an alcoholic. It's your father. That's right. And then you've got a little friend that's kind of wears glasses and you're praying for that friend. That is true, sister. THUS SAITH THE LORD.
You believe now? You believe you receive what you come for? Come.
Dear God, I bless this child, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and may she go from here tonight and receive everything that she's asked for. She's just a child, Lord, in her tender faith. May it be greatly rewarded. For we ask it in His Name. Amen. God bless you, sister. Go, rejoicing and believing.
L-69 Now, I want to ask you something. Each one of you people, that believe with all your heart that Jesus Christ raised from the dead... And now before you get disturbing, I want to ask you something. Do you believe now without one shadow of doubt? Is all the doubts gone away? Now, you believe that He lives? Let's just sing one verse that "He lives." Brother Ekberg, or one of you would... Brother here, would you come give us a... "He Lives, He Lives, Christ Jesus lives today." Will you sing it with me, now?
And raise your hands to Him, that He's here. I want you to worship Him. You see? He wants to be worshipped. I feel impressed in my heart. He wants you to worship Him now in this song. All right, brother.
He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today.
He walks with me, and talks with me,
Along life's narrow way,
He lives, He lives, salvation to impart.
You ask me how I know He lives,
He lives within my heart.

Now, just a moment. Does He do that for you, lady? Then your heart trouble's gone. Then move off the platform. Does He do that for you, Christians? Does He live in your heart? Are you sure? If you are, then let's raise our hands to Him while I pray for you, and every one of you be healed. You are already healed.
L-70 I believe I know this man setting by you, Gene. I believe it's the man... Yes... But you're praying for somebody. And the person's got a cancer. That's right. Yeah, I seen them standing. Don't fear; have faith.
Sir, back there, you want to get over that prostate trouble? You believe that Jesus healed you now? If you believe it, God bless you, then you can have it. Amen. Anybody want to be healed, just raise your hands to Him. He's here. He's raised from the dead. Now, do you believe it? Raise up your hands.
Heavenly Father, coming down to the closing of the service, coming down to the spot that where You have done all things well, You've done everything good. You can do nothing else but good things, because You're God. And I pray Thee, heavenly Father, knowing that this great massive crowd of people, thousands setting here, how could we ever get one by one, when I'm nearly ready to faint now.
But Father dear, they have seen Your resurrected power, and they know that You're here. You're not dead no more. You're living. And You're here as a High Priest. And we love You, and we believe You, and we accept You, and we condemn the devil. And we cast him out in the Name of Jesus. And we take liberty now to worship the Lord for our healing and salvation, giving Him all the praise and the glory, through Jesus Christ's Name.

56-0414 - Revival Assembly Church, Columbia, SC,
L-62 Now, here's a lady standing here, I... God knows I have never seen the woman in my life. We're strangers to each other, are we lady? Frankly, every one here is strangers to me. Are you all strangers? Just raise up your hand so that you'll see. See? Every one of you strangers; I don't know you. But there's Someone here Who does know you, that's Christ.
Now, this lady standing here, is a very typical picture of the woman at the well, a man and a woman together. He being a Man, the woman that came... Now, there was something wrong with that woman, and Jesus talked to her a few minutes, until He caught her spirit and knowed what was her trouble, and told her her trouble. How many Bible readers say that's true, let's see your hand? And what did the woman say to Him? She said, "This is the sign of the Messiah; we know that when Messiah cometh, He will do that." Is that right? Bible readers? [John 4:25]
L-63 Now, the Bible said, that, "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever." Right? And He's got to be the same in principle, the same in power, the same in every way, only in the corporal body. And He's using us. See, Jesus don't have any hands but yours and mine. See, we are the what? He is the Vine; we are the branches. Is that right? The vine don't bear fruit; the branches bear fruit. Is that right? You don't take the fruit off the vine; you take it off the branch.
So, but the energy of the branch comes from the vine. See? And if it's in the tree, it will bear the same kind of fruit the tree is. That makes Jesus the same yesterday, today, and forever, Saint John 15. See? Wherever you turn in the Bible, may be a new page for you, but you'll find out that's exactly the truth, right here in the Bible.
Now, the woman, I speak to her. If I don't know her, she raised her hand she doesn't know us. And I--may I say this, just before this happen; I felt something strike. If there be a critic here, inside or out, I am not responsible for what happens to you. Hear to it in Jesus' Name; horrible things have happened. I wouldn't stay at the meeting any longer. I'd go and come back tomorrow afternoon at the preaching service. Don't stay, critic. If we just had time to explain it to you. Don't stay; I will not be responsible. [Hebrews 13:8]
L-64 Now, to the lady, me not knowing you, you not knowing me... You're here for some cause. You might be a critic yourself. I don't know. You'll find out in a few minutes whether you are or not. You'll see what happens and how they take you off the platform, maybe not even in life in your body. But that's up--between God and you. But I'm just His servant.
And now, if He is risen from the dead, and become the Vine, and His ministers becomes the branch, then the same Life that's in the Vine is in the branch. And Jesus said, "The same things that I do shall you also."
Now, if He has risen from the dead, then He's got to do the same thing that He did when He was here on earth, or He didn't raise from the dead. That's just right or wrong. See? He's either the truth or false.
Now, if the woman says she don't know me, I don't know her... And if I claim this, and Jesus raised from the dead, and if He will perform the same thing between she and I, that He did the woman at the well, one of the pictures, the same thing, will you all believe on Him with all your hearts? [John 14:12]
L-65 I just want to talk to you. "What are you doing, Brother Branham?" You're spirits. See, you're human; you got a spirit. I'm a human, got a spirit. And you are a Christian to begin with, 'cause your spirit feels welcome. I wouldn't know but what you was a big critic myself; I wouldn't know. But the same Spirit that was upon our Lord Jesus, that said to the man that come with--Nathanael come with Philip, said, "Behold, an Israelite in whom there's no guile," a just man. He knew it.
And that astonished him, "How'd You know me, Rabbi?"
He said, "Before Philip called you, when you were under the tree I saw you." And then he believed.
Now, knowing you are a Christian, so how do I know that? Because the Holy Spirit here between us, you're spirit witnesses as soon as It contact that you are a Christian; you're a believer; you're not a critic. [John 1:47-48]
L-66 Now, if the Lord Jesus will tell me what you're here for, will you be...? See, I couldn't heal you if you're sick. I couldn't heal you, or I couldn't give you your desire. It'd be your faith in Him. But I only claim He raised from the dead, you understand? Well, may the Lord grant it, sister. Just talking to you to contact your spirit.
But now, if the audience can still hear my voice, between she and I comes that same Light that you see in the picture, and she's going away from me. The woman, I see her in her doing her work, she is very, very, nervous. She drops things, and she's suffering with a--a skin trouble, which is a cancer in her skin. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD. Is that the truth? If it is, raise your hand?
L-67 Now, just to speak with you, other things would take place. Do you believe now? Now, let's just talk to the woman, just see what He would say. If we don't get many just... Now, let's talk. What was it He said was wrong, I--it was something or another, I seen you doing something or drop something, or doing something, it was something in the house. Then I seen you... Oh yes, the woman, now she's... Yes, it's a skin; it's cancer in the skin. And she's bothered with a trouble, another trouble. And that is in her side and in her breast. She's got pains, and that's her left side and breast. That's right. And she is worried about that; that's what's making her nervous, 'cause she thinks it's cancer in her breast and side. Which it is. That is right. That's true.
But look, this a way, lady. Christ, you know there's Something here besides your brother. If the audience can still hear me, there's something be... It--it's Him, He's the One Who knows you. Now, I want to tell you something. Just since I have talked to you, there's been a change come to you. You realize that you're--besides something, beside your brother, don't you? You're healed. Your faith has made you well. It's light around the woman; darkness has been drove back from the shadows of death is become the shadows of Light. And I now, I bless this, my sister, in the Name of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. And Thou hast said, "Whatever you bind on earth, I'll bind in heaven." And I bind the enemy of her life, in Jesus Christ's Name. Amen.
Now, sister, look. Stop worrying, go on your road rejoicing, happy. And then when I come back in the tent, year from today or sometime, you come to the tent and give the testimony of what happened to you. God bless you; now go on your road and rejoice, and praise the Lord. [Matthew 18:18]
L-68 Do you believe? If thou canst believe, thou canst receive. Have faith. Now, just be real reverent. You believe, anything can happen. Oh, I wished I could let my audience know just what a feeling this is.
To you scientists, to you who study scientific culture, may I say it in this way: that's the fifth dimension; it's another world. See? You go down a person's life, only by the grace of God.
Now, here's another strange lady, never seen her. Only Jesus Christ knows the woman; I don't, never seen her in my life. But He knows you. And if He will reveal to me what your trouble is, will you accept it and believe it?
Now, the lady, I see her going somewhere, it's an examination. It's before doctors, and they're giving her something another, as a treatment. It's a treatment for a dark shadow that hangs; it's cancer. Treating her for cancer, and through that it's made her real, real, nervous. That's THUS SAITH THE HOLY SPIRIT.
Now, one thing that you--you are in your spiritual life... That you might know that I be His servant, you are--you--you're always trying to reach up to something that you have never been able to get a hold of. That's right. And you--you're needing it. And you've made a promise to God by the side of a bed, that if God would let you get well, that you would surrender your whole life and being to Him in a prayer by the side of a bed. That's right, THUS SAITH THE LORD. You're not from this city, you come from another city. Pauline is your name; that is right. Pauline, you return home. Jesus Christ has made you well, surrender yourself to Him and you'll be healed in Jesus Christ's Name. [Mark 9:23]
L-69 Don't think about that. Did not Jesus say to Simon, "Your name is Simon, but you will be called Peter." He knows all about you. Have faith in God. Don't doubt; believe.
You're worry, aren't you mother? About the child. Mother, if the Lord Jesus will tell me what you got your arm around that child for, will you accept me as His prophet and believe on all things? You're worried and crying. The child is subnormal; that is right. And you're praying for that child. Not only that, but you suffer with a back trouble; that is right. If that's right, raise up your hand? Now, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. And as you have believed, so will it be unto you. Lay your hand on the child.
Lord Jesus, we pray for mercy now. The little woman contacted You through the Vine. And we pray that You'll grant to her the desire of her heart. In Christ's Name, I pray. Amen. Don't doubt, but just believe...?... [John 1:42]
L-70 The elderly gentleman, setting, looking at me there on the end of the row, got a lot of worry and troubled child and so forth. You're suffering with a rupture too, aren't you? If that's right raise up your hand? I'll tell you something: you got a habit, you ought to quit you're using tobacco, smoking; throw it away. That's bothering; you have a cough too. That's bad on you, and you shouldn't do that. Will you throw it down and promise Christ you'll serve Him tonight on? Then you can have what you ask for. In the Name of the Lord Jesus receive it.
Dost thou believe all your heart? We're strangers to each other, but God knows us both, doesn't He? You think that He would make you well of the neuritis, sir? You do? You were praying, "Lord Jesus, let me be healed tonight. Have the man to turn to me, and I will believe." That... Raise your hand if... See, that's--that's right. I'm not reading your mind, but I hear your prayer in prayer-land. Your faith has saved you, sir; don't doubt. Amen.
L-71 You're conscious something's going on, aren't you, lady? You know that's it's not your brother standing here that makes you feel that way. It's your Saviour, the Lord Jesus. But this feeling that you have, real humble, sweet, meek, feeling. It's Him. I don't know you. But you're deeply in trouble. I see a streak of sorrow followed you. You're suffering with a trouble, a nervous condition, got something wrong with your throat, got something wrong with your stomach. That's right.
And I see appear by your side, it's a little girl, it's your child. She's about eight or ten years old. She's setting in this direction, now for her--the faith line is moving that way. The child has a trouble in its throat; it's a tonsil trouble. And the child is extremely nervous. And she's been taken out of public school because of her nerves. And she's in another school, private school, because of her condition. The handkerchief that you wipe the tear from your eye with, lay it on the child; she's going to be all right. Don't you fear. You go in Christ's Name. Believe all things; you shall have what you've asked for. God bless you, my sister. [Acts 19:12]
L-72 Have faith, don't doubt. Jesus said, "If you can believe, all things are possible to them that believe." Is that right? It was just made for believers.
I see a lady standing in the midst of the air, a young woman. She's coughing at night time. It's an asthmatic condition. She's setting here on the end of the seat. You also have something wrong in the nose; it's a hay fever that bothers you. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD. You're setting on the end of the seat there, a black headed young woman a praying. Raise up your hand; that's it. Do you believe?
I seen that yellow sweater. The lady setting next to you, that you might know that I be His prophet, she is wanting prayer too, for stomach trouble. That's right, isn't it, lady? You're nervous type person. When you eat your food, it 'gurgitates in your stomach and sours, comes back, cause you trouble, burn like heartburn, dyspep--dyspepsia. That's right. Wave your hand if it's true. If you believe, you can have what you ask for.
Sir, you setting right behind her there: stomach trouble also. You looked around at him just then, with a back trouble. That's right. You're neither one from this country. You come from another place, out of town, place called Alma, Georgia. That's right, raise your hands? Have faith, go back to Alma and testify what great things God's done for you; give Him praise. It's your faith, sir. [Mark 9:23]
L-73 Do you believe? If thou canst believe... Sister, look this a way. I'm getting terribly weak, 'cause it's the crowd. If one vision made virtue go from Him, what does this do? You're back's bothering you. That is right. Your trouble's in your back; you get sore in spells, and you can't hardly get around with it. That was caused... I see a crash or something. Automobile, you had a automobile accident and done it. That's right. Correct. Now, give your whole life over to Him; surrender yourself and receive the Holy Ghost, and go and be filled with His Spirit, and work for Him, and do for Him. You've had that desire for a long time anyhow. Now, go serve the Lord and get well. In the Name of the Lord Jesus. Amen.
Have faith in God. You believe? Only believe. The lovely Lord Jesus is here. He's the One Who can do all kinds of miracles. Are you convinced that He's risen from the dead? He's here; that's the things that He does. [Mark 9:23], [Mark 11:22]
L-74 You want prayer for somebody else; that's right. I see a man standing by you. It's your brother. He's a alcoholic; that's right. Take that handkerchief and put it under his pillow-slip. Ask the Lord. Believe with all your heart and receive what you ask for; you can get what you ask for.
Do you believe? What do you think, lady, come in on the stretcher setting there? I can't heal you, but if you'll believe with all heart, if you do, you can--soon as the service is, you can get up out of the stretcher and take your things, push it on out and go home, be well. You believe? Do it.
The rest of you, do you believe too? Now, He can go on. Have faith. Right in here, I see a vision; you got trouble with your eye, cancer. You believe with all your heart? All right, receive your healing. The Lord God bless you.
Let's say, "Praise the Lord." Now, stop thinking that, back there, I'm not reading of her mind. These will come on you. [Acts 19:12]
L-75 Come here, lady, I don't know you. Lay your--come here. Lay your hand on mine. If Jesus Christ will reveal to me what's wrong with you without looking in your face, you accept it? Then you eat your supper; your stomach trouble's finished. That's right, what you had. Now, go rejoice and you be well. God bless you.
Let's say, "Praise the Lord."
Mother, this old back trouble's been bothering you a long time. But go believing now; it's gone from you. Jesus Christ makes you well. And say, "Praise the Lord."
Let's say, "Praise the Lord."
Sinus condition, but Jesus Christ can make that well, can't He? Heal you and make you every whit whole, you believe with all your heart? Then go and receive what you've asked for, through Christ Jesus' Name.
Let's say, "Praise the Lord."
L-76 You believe, lady? With all your heart? I see you trying to get out of a bed; you're stiff. I see you try to move from a street and set your foot down sideways like this, to get off the street. You got arthritis. I'm not reading your mind, just telling you what you done. That's right, isn't it? You believe? Raise your feet up and down like this; your arthritis is gone. You was healed standing right here. You believe?
Nervous, your stomach bothered you and caused you to have fluttering around the heart, especially when you lay down. It's caused a gastric condition in your stomach, peptic condition, ulcers, that's done it. You're real nervous, has been that way for some time, especially since the menopause; you've been nervous. Not reading your mind, but that's every word true. That's right, isn't it? Now, you're healed. Go on the road rejoicing. Your faith has made you whole.
Let's say, "Praise the Lord."
L-77 Lady's trouble, suffered some time. You also got arthritis. That's right. It's exactly the truth. Your--your life couldn't be hid, lady, but is--is your faith right with God now? If it is, then you raise up your hand, and believe, go and be well in the Name of the Lord Jesus, and be made well. God bless you.
Let's say, "Praise be to God."
You all are becoming almost blind to me. The Holy Ghost is just over the building. Now, I am not a fanatic. I am telling the truth. My--I--I'm a want to be a man of honor and a Christian. You heard my word and had a right to doubt it. But this is not me speaking; it's Him. To doubt Him is sin. I declare to every one of you, Jesus Christ has healed every one of you when He died at Calvary. Can you accept it in the power of His resurrection? If you can, raise your hands to Him, give Him praise, rise up to your feet, praise Him.
Almighty God, in Jesus Christ's Name, I pray that You will heal, and make well...
