61-0211 - First Assembly Of God Of Long Beach, Long Beach, CA (Paragraphs: 82 - 87)
L-83 Oh, brother, the Angel of the Lord is--is here tonight. He's Jehovah God in your flesh. He's Jehovah God in my flesh. That same God never dies. He's just as real. The thing of it is, the people don't recognize Him. They don't re... And when He does come, they say, "Well, very well, I suppose. Looks all right, uh-huh. I guess that's right." Oh, brother, if every Word in that Bible isn't true, it's not God's Word. It's not God's Word if it isn't. But if it is, then it's... If--if the--if God confirms His Word, then it's true. Amen. God keeps His Word; don't you believe that?
He's here. He's here. I say that in the Name of the Lord. Think He is? Now, He can use my flesh the same as He could create some, 'cause He made me anyhow. He could use your flesh; He created and made you, don't you think that? Now, if you'll just open up your heart and get yourself out of the way, He will come in, can use you. He's the same God; He gives the same signs. Amen. You believe it? Look to Him; let me turn my back, pray for something you got wrong. Oh, that's a challenge.
L-84 Yes, sir. Here's a man before me; here he is standing right... Let me see now, where's he at? Setting right back there, tie open here in front, light suit on, thin hair on top, suffering with heart trouble. The man with the gray looking suit on, setting here looking right at me. You were praying, "Lord, let him touch me." That's right? Raise up your hand if that's right. That the same Angel came tell me what he was saying in his heart, then why ain't the same God? Your heart trouble's over, brother; go home and be well. Amen. You wouldn't happen to have a prayer card, do you? You don't have a prayer card. Don't need one.
You see what I mean? The... See, he's just coming to himself. I looked around; I seen him standing back there, that thin hair; and I looked; I thought, "Where's he at?" And looked back there and there he was; he was setting there. The man just... I never seen him in my life. If we're strangers, raise your hand, sir. Was every word said right? Was that what you was thinking, what you was doing? There you are.
L-85 Then what did He say? When the--that man setting there, God in His flesh, this Man's flesh, said, "Why did Sarah say in her heart, that it can't happen?" Then the same Angel comes here and said, "Why did--you did say it will happen, let Him touch me." Amen. Oh, why be so gross? Amen. Just have faith. Don't you see, friends? Can you wake up, Pentecostal people? Won't you bite your conscience? Won't you pinch your soul? Amen.
Now, it's starting everywhere. Oh, Jehovah-jireh, the Lord's able to provide for Himself a sacrifice. Amen. Have faith. What do you think, brother? I guess you might think I'm rough. I'm not. I'm your brother. I'm your brother. That's right, brother. I love you. I realize I'm in a--a organizational church here, Assembly of God, one of my greatest sponsors, my brothers. But what I hate to see is them getting cold and cooling off. I'm not against that organization. I'm not against the Oneness brethren out there, or the Methodists, or the Baptists, I say the same thing everywhere. But what I'm trying to say, shake yourselves, brother. Get your eyes off of these things...
L-86 Here, wait a minute, a woman appeared here before me, somebody praying: Neuritis, eyes... The woman's got a red dress on. Here she sets right here. You believe that He will heal you? Miss Curry, then if you'll believe with all your heart, God will make you well. If that's right, raise up your hand. All right, there you are.
I challenge you to believe it. What is it? The same Lord God Almighty. He's here, indwelling in human flesh. Hallelujah, hallelujah. Oh, my. His Spirit is all over the building. Ever where was that woman that It spoke to? Where's she? Is--was it you, lady? The woman It spoke to just then, where was it? Oh, here, this lady, yeah. All right. You accept your healing now? I don't know you. I've never seen you in my life, know nothing about you. But them things are true, wasn't it? There you are. All right. All right. See, I never seen her; there's my hands before God. See what He does. Oh, brother, sister, if you'd just get away from your shell, pull out of it. Come out, lay yourself before God and saying, "Lord God, nothing in my arms I bring, simply to Thy cross I cling." That's right.
L-87
I will praise Him, I will praise Him,
Praise the Lamb for sinners slain;
Give Him glory, all ye people,
For His blood has washed away each stain.

I will praise Him, I will praise Him,
Praise the Lamb for sinners slain;
Give Him glory, all ye people,
For His blood has washed away each stain.

I love Him, I... (Oh, my, worship Him. The hard cutting sermon's over now. Let's worship Him.)
... He first loved me (Don't you love Him? Isn't He wonderful?)
... purchased my salvation
On Calvary's tree.

I will praise Him, (Don't you feel all scoured out now?) I will praise Him,
Praise the Lamb for sinners slain;
Now, give Him glory, all ye people,
For His blood has washed away each stain.

61-0213 - First Assembly Of God Of Long Beach, Long Beach, CA (Paragraphs: 69 - 93)
L-70 Would you just walk a little closer? Now, to the audience... Now, I've been preaching so I want to talk to this woman. Now, let me Scripturally base it now, for you. Let's take where I was talking. Let's see, it'd be Saint John 4. Here's a man and a woman. I believe you held up your hands that we were strangers to one another. We are strangers. So the audience way back in the back would know that we're strangers, we just both hold our hands up that we don't know each other.
L-71 Now, this is just like Saint John 4. Our Lord come to a well, and met a woman. He'd never saw her; she'd never saw Him. But He described what that woman's condition was, where her trouble was. And quickly she said, "You must be a prophet. We know the Messiah is coming, and when the Messiah cometh He will tell us these things." How many knows that's true?
And now, sister, I just got through saying, I believe, that--that He was on His road to Jericho, but had to go by Samaria. And the Father sent Him up there. Well, now, we don't know one another. I've never seen you, and you've never seen me, and this is our first time meeting. Then I believe God sent me down here. Brother Arganbright there called me, and asked me if I'd come to Long Beach, and also come to Brother Arny Vick's. I told him I would. Well, they put both weeks down here for some reason. Then I believe that was God doing that.
L-72 Then I'm here. Then you're here. Father sent me here, but I don't know you. So if the Messiah would happen to... Me being a man, a human being, your Brother Branham, I don't know nothing about you. God knows that, and His Word here. But if the Messiah will come and anoint me, then He'd do the same thing that He did down there. He'd know what your trouble was, and could tell you.
Now, what if--if He was standing here Hisself in person--not me, but Him? You'd say, "O Lord Jesus, heal me."
Now, He couldn't do that. He'd say, "Child of mine, I've already done it when I died for you." But then He'd say, "That you might know that I am He, I will do as I did when I was here on earth, because I cannot change. See? Now, if the Father will show me what your trouble is, then would you believe me to be the Messiah?"
You'd say, "Yea, Lord." And He'd perhaps do the same thing He done, 'cause He'd have to--He's the same.
L-73 But see now, He Himself, the body, Jesus Christ, is setting at the right hand of God in heaven. But He sent back the Holy Spirit, the Spirit that was upon Him. Now, He had it without measure. The Fullness of the Godhead bodily was in Him. I just got a little spoonful. That's what we have, got it by measure. But if I took a spoonful of water out of the ocean, and brought it up here and tested the chemicals in it, the same chemicals that's in the entire ocean is in that spoonful, just not as much of it.
See, as I'm talking I'm watching something. You're aware that something's going on. Now, if the audience can see that, standing between me and that woman stands that Light that you're looking at on the picture. There It is. Now, it makes me feel good, I know He's here. I was a little...?... but He's here now. You're aware that something's going on. I want you to witness to the audience if it's so or not. Just a moment ago a real sweet comfortable-like feeling come, just a nice comfortable feeling. That's right, isn't it? [Colossians 3:1], [Colossians 2:9]
L-74 Now, if the Lord Jesus will let me know something about you, that... I know nothing. But if He could tell me something that you have been, or something like that... If He could tell you what you have been, He'd know what you will be. If He could tell you that, you'd be the judge whether it's correct or not.
You are troubled with something with your hip, I believe, something wrong with your hip. That's what you want me to pray for. If that's right, raise up your hand so the people can see. All right. Do you believe now with all your heart? Now, just a moment. See? So that you won't--you'll thoroughly understand it wasn't a guess. But that's as much as Jesus done to the woman at the well. That's right. Is that right? That's right. But now just to let you know that He keeps His Word...
That proves it. You say, "It could've been a guess, Brother Branham." How could I guess that, when right now I didn't know what I told her? It'd have to come off the tape. Now, be reverent.
L-75 Just look again, just merely for a vision, that's all. I'm watching you. Yeah, I see you going back, back, back, Yes, it's--it's in your hip. All right. You got hip trouble, and you got somebody else on your mind that you're praying for. That's a son. Something wrong with him in a cast. That's right. And then, there's something else. That boy is shadowed. That means that he--he needs salvation. He's not a Christian. That's true. Do you believe God can tell me who you are? Would it help you? It would? Mrs. Morris, go believe.
Now, do you believe on the Lord Jesus Christ? Now, just raise up your hands, and say, "Thank You, Lord Jesus."
Our heavenly Father, Thou has not left us alone. Thou has blessed us and give us of Thy goodness. I pray that You'll help us to believe now, and each one be healed. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, we ask it. Amen.
L-76 Now, please be seated. Please, please. Don't move. Stay still. See, each one of you is a spirit. How many knows that? Sure. Look here. What is this? My finger. What's this? My hand. What's this? My ear. But who's me? See? It's my--me inside. This is what belongs to me. That's what I'm talking about: you, your spirit. And by being anointed now with His Holy Spirit, I'm in contact with you. Pray. Pray; don't doubt. What could happen right now if the church would just get alive. See?
Is this the next person? How do you do, lady? We are strangers to each other, too, I suppose. I do not know you, but God does know you. And if He knows you, then the only way I'd be able to know you would be by something He'd tell me.
Jesus said, "I do just as the Father shows Me." See? And that's the only way I could do, just as Father would show me. But if He will show me what your trouble is, will you believe Him? [John 5:19]
L-77 The colored lady setting there, right out here, with high blood pressure, do you believe Jesus Christ make you well now? You touched something, didn't you? All right. You're healed. Now, Jesus Christ heals you. Now, tell me what she touched. Tell me what she touched. She touched the High Priest.
I don't know that lady. Never seen her... But I turned here, and I knowed this was a white woman; and I looked; there was a colored lady standing here. I looked around. She had on a little funny-looking thing on top of her head. I thought, where's that? I felt it going just like a heart beat, going "che, che, che, che..." I looked, and there it was. I seen it break loose like that. I seen them put something around her arm and pump it up. And he said high blood pressure. It's over now, sister. Jesus Christ heals you. Is He a High Priest that can be touched by the feeling of our infirmities? Now, be real reverent now.
L-78 We want... God is worshipped. We like to worship Him, but the Holy Spirit's so timid. Just be real quiet. Now, you little fellows be real nice, down here now in front, real nice. Now, real quiet.
Everybody start praying now, saying, "Father, I am needy," while I talk to this woman here, because it's easy to come in contact with her. I don't say He'd tell her anything, but if He doesn't tell her... If He doesn't say one thing to you, if I just pass you by and lay hands on you, you know there's got to be some kind of anointing here. Is that right? I wouldn't know these things. Well then, if you believe it to be the Holy Spirit, you get your reward. If you call it something else, that'd be between you and God. See? I wouldn't know. I can only declare the Bible says it. Here it is to prove it.
L-79 Now, our sister standing before me, she's suffering with a nervous condition and something wrong in her throat. That is right. If that's right, raise up your hand.
Do you believe? Just watching now. I believe it would be better if I just take my time with a few of them like that. Just watch. I think it'll hold the audience better than just start running a big crowd here. Now, just be real reverent. I feel led to do this.
There's something else on her mind. She hasn't--she hasn't delivered herself yet. There's something else here. Yes, I see what it is. It's a trouble in your side. It's a growth, isn't it? Do you believe God can tell me what side it's in? It's in the left side. If that's right, raise up your hand. Do you believe now?
There's something else on your heart. That's a man. That man's your husband. He's setting out there. Do you believe God can tell me what's his trouble? Will you believe for him and put that handkerchief on him? He's got trouble with his eyes, and with his ears. If that's right, raise up your hand. Go, put the handkerchief on him, and be well in the Name of Jesus Christ. Have faith now. Have faith. [Acts 19:11-12]
L-80 Now, the whole thing's becoming like a light all over the building right here. So now be real reverent. And if I don't get to see you after this for awhile, well, we'll see you tomorrow night. Now, be real reverent everyone now, and try to help--work with me. You realize... If anybody wants to come and take my place, you can come right on. See, see? But just be real reverent. Now, believe. I'm here...
I'm not a preacher. I--I haven't the education to be a preacher. God gave me maybe something else (See?), so I could help you. Your pastor can preach to you and help you, but He--He gave me this to help you, 'cause I love you. And He loves you, and He'd want me to express His love to you.
L-81 How do you do? Now, here's a beautiful picture again, a colored sister and white man. Now, that's the same as it was at Samaria: a Jew and Samaritan. But Jesus quickly let her know... Said because that we was raised in a different part of the country, and turned our skins different color...
God's God of all races. He's like a flower bed. He has white flowers, and red flowers, and blue flowers. And that's His bouquet. See? He--He makes us this way. But our hearts... We all come from one person, Adam and Eve. That's right. The country we lived in, it changed our colors. It has nothing to do with our spirits and hearts. That's true. God's just as real to you as He is to anybody else. You believe that? And you believe me to be His servant? You believe the things that I've said? I know you do.
L-82 I just come from Africa recently... last few years. Going back again too. Oh, to see that faith, that simple faith. If God will reveal to me what's your trouble, will you believe me to be His prophet, or His servant? You'll believe it. May He grant it. Rectal trouble. It's a rectal. Now, all you colored people believe, now. This is your sister. Wait. Something more than that too.
You said it was an intestinal trouble, the intestines. And they're shrinking, shriveling up, collapsing, the intestines. That is right. Do you believe with all your heart? Do you believe me to be His servant? If I tell you what your name is, would you believe me better? Would the audience believe better? Would you believe? Mrs. Jefferson, go home, Jesus Christ makes you well. God bless you. Have faith in God.
L-83 How do you do? We're strangers to each other. Tell me when I get three by, then I'll... We're strangers to each other. I do not know you. You do not know me. Ma'am? You've been in my meetings, but I wouldn't know you. You just set out in the audience. All right.
Something happened, but I missed it. It was in that corner. Maybe it was that lady, the lady that just set down. Was you the lady that was just prayed for or something? Yes. I--I watched that Light. It left the platform. But I thought it was a man. It is a man, setting right there with throat trouble. Yeah. Yes, sir. The man setting by you is real happy, 'cause he just got healed, the glory of God upon him. That man had throat trouble. Your throat trouble has left you, sir. You're praying, setting there praying for you brought the power of God upon you. Go now, your sin's forgiven; your throat's healed. Go and be made well, in the Name of the Lord Jesus.
L-84 I challenge you; have faith in God. That lady setting right behind there, looking right at me as hard as she can, don't you see that Light standing over her? She's suffering with a bladder trouble. You believe with... Raise up, sister. Stand up and accept your healing. All right. Go, and Jesus Christ makes you well. I never seen the woman in my life. Are we strangers to one another? Raise up your hand, lady, if that's right. All right. Go home, be well. When you set back down, there's a lady setting right next to you there, bothered with throat trouble also. Stand up, lady, and accept your healing. We're strangers to one another? Go home and be well. Jesus Christ makes you well.
Can't you see that He lives? Christ lives. He's the same yesterday, today, and forever. Just have faith in God, children. Have faith in God, don't doubt. Just believe with all your heart. "If thou canst believe, all things are possible." [Mark 9:23]
L-85 You got a nervous condition, cough. That's what makes you cough. It's your nerves. You're afraid there's something wrong in your throat, but it isn't. When you get nervous, that's when you cough more. That's not your main thing, though. You're praying for somebody else. He had an accident, didn't he? Son, in the hospital. He's semiconscious. You're scared whether he would die or something. He--he has been saved, but you're a little afraid. He wasn't prayed up just right. Isn't that right? If that's right, raise your hand. It's all right. It's okay, go on. He will come out of it. You believe with all your heart, and don't doubt. Have faith.
Do you believe me to be His prophet, or His servant? That staggers people when I say that. I don't claim to be a prophet. I'm just His brother. I'm--I'm His servant, your brother.
L-86 Just a moment. Just a moment. Something happened. Somewhere in the audience. Be reverent now. That's it. Be real reverent and pray now. Just reach up and say, "Lord Jesus..." I don't care what you have...?... say, "That man don't know me. I haven't got no prayer card, I'm not going to be in that prayer line. He don't know me. But, Lord, if You'll just let me touch Your garment, then You turn him around to me." See? Just see if that isn't right.
Just... Now, be real reverent. We are strange to each other; we do not know each other. If that's right, just so... We raise our hands so people see. All right. We are strangers to each other, and--but God knows us both. Do you believe me to be His servant? Now, reason I say that, He told me... You've probably read my book. Have you ever read that? He said, "If you get the people to believe you." Believe what? Not believe me to be Him, but believe that He sent me. See? He has to get somebody somewhere. See?
L-87 So He's got other men on the field, great men. I'm one of the small... But my little part, I like to do for Him to show Him my expression about my love for Him, to be reverent. I love Him with all my heart. And I cannot love Him without loving you all. See? For He'd rather I'd love you all than love Him. I'd rather you'd love my children instead of loving me. And me, being a parent, thinks that, what about Him?
Now, you say, "Brother Branham, what are you doing?" I'm waiting to see what He will tell me. If He doesn't tell me nothing, and I just come lay hands on you, would you believe anyhow? You'll believe anyhow. Would the audience believe that way anyhow? There it comes, though.
L-88 You've had an operation. It's pretty serious. It isn't doing well. You're scared. You're afraid it's cancer. Now, do you believe He can tell me what the operation was? I see the operation. It was a gallbladder, I believe. That's right. You're scared. If I don't say nothing, what it is, or whether it is, if God will just let you have faith, that's all you need, isn't it? Is that right?
If He will tell me who you are, or where you're from, or something like that, or something else in your life, will you believe? Would you make you believe real... You know that I don't know you. You're not from here. You're from a place called Downey. You're Mrs. Kelly. Now, go back; you're healed. Jesus Christ makes you well. Do you believe? Have faith in God. Don't doubt.
L-89 That woman... Is that the woman that was just healed, or prayed for? That Light was right there just a moment ago, right where she was at. Somebody praying. Young man, do you have a prayer card? Do you believe me to be His prophet, His servant? Do you believe God will heal your friend? If I'll tell you what's wrong, will you believe it? Cancer. Have faith and believe. Now, he will get well. Amen.
The lady setting right back here looking at me, got trouble with your foot. It was caused from an operation. Wearing glasses, brown hair, do you believe with all your heart? Raise up your hand. All right, you can go home and be well. Jesus Christ heals you.
Do you believe, sir? In the Name of Jesus Christ, go and be healed. Amen. Have faith now. Don't doubt.
Lady, you got something wrong with your eye. If I will tell you what it is, will you believe? It's cancer. Will you accept your healing? Then in the Name of Jesus Christ, go and be healed. Everybody pray now. Have faith.
L-90 My, here's another cancer. You believe that God will make you well, sister? Come, let me lay hands on you while the anointing... Go now and may the God of heaven heal you and make you well.
That kidney trouble left you while you were setting there. Go and be made well. Believe on the Lord Jesus with all your heart. Don't doubt. Just believe with all your heart. All right.
Come, lady. Do you believe me to be His servant? God can heal heart trouble. Don't you believe that? Do you believe yours was healed? Then go on your road and say, "Thank you, Lord Jesus," and be made well.
You had a lady's trouble, and also a heart trouble. Do you believe it's gone? All right, go on your road and say, "Thank you, Lord," and be made well.
A man of your age should have a little prostate, nervous trouble, but one of your great things is a killer. That's heart trouble. You believe that He will heal you? If that's right, raise your hand. Go and be well. Jesus Christ make you well.
L-91 Come, believing now. How do you do, lady? You're awful thin, but you got a shadow over you. You're shadowed to death. It's a cancer, a killer. Do you believe God will make you well? Go, and I rebuke that devil from my sister. In the Name of Jesus Christ, Satan, come out of her.
I'm a stranger to you, lady. You believe God can tell me what your trouble is? Would you believe? Wait a minute. Setting right there with stomach trouble, sir, you believe God makes you well? Do you believe with all your heart? Black-headed man, young fellow with a white shirt on, praying there with... That's it. Go home and eat now. It's a nervous stomach, had you blocked off. Do you believe on Him with all your heart? Do you accept your healing? Stand up, if you do. Just raise right up. All right. Go home. Jesus Christ makes you well.
If God can tell me what's your trouble... Do you believe me to be His prophet, His servant? Your diabetes will leave you, if you'll believe. Go home and be well. Jesus Christ will heal you.
L-92 Now, lady, you got several things wrong with you. That's right. As a lady your age, that actually have that. But the thing that you want me to pray for is a heart trouble. That's right. You have a nervous, weak heart. When you lay down it gets worse than ever. So now, if you'll believe with all your heart, you can go home and be well. Jesus Christ make you well.
How about believing, setting there in that lawn chair? I can't heal you. Got a prayer card? God can make you well, if you'll believe. You can't set there and live, like the lepers that set at the gate. They said, "Why set we here till we die?" You got in contact with something. You're in contact with Him now. You touched His garment, if I could just get you to see it. You're dying with cancer, but if you'll believe with all your heart, Jesus Christ will make you well.
The lepers said, "Why do we set here till we die? If we set here we'll die." If you set there, you'll die. Rise up in the Name of Jesus Christ. Go home and be made well then. [II Kings 7:3]
L-93 All that wants to believe on Him, you believe with all your heart? Stand up on your feet, every one of you, and accept your healing. Raise up your hands. Hallelujah. Here's--here's another woman out of a wheelchair standing up. They're standing up everywhere around over the building down here. Down here they're getting up. Stand up out of your wheelchairs. Get up. This is... the Son of God is in your midst, Christ the Healer. Stand up. Raise up your hands and give Him praise.
Lord Jesus, I cast out the devil of doubt in this building. Come out of here, Satan, I challenge you in the Name of Jesus Christ.

61-0215 - First Assembly Of God Of Long Beach, Long Beach, CA (Paragraphs: 78 - 90)
L-79 Now, as you see the people standing (raise your heads), the ones that's standing I want you to shake their hands as they set down. Up there in the balcony, there right here, you, any of you Christians near them now as you're seated, just shake their hand, say, "God bless you." Shake this little boy's hand here. God bless his little heart there. Some of you mothers setting there, right here... That's right. God bless you. God bless you, brother, with the broken foot there. Don't worry, you'll be all right. I knowed that a couple nights ago, so just don't worry about that. You're all right. So... Up there in the balcony, all of you. See? It's all all right. Oh, isn't He wonderful?
"Jesus, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me." Say, "Brother Branham, do you believe that to be the truth?" Why, certainly I believe that to be the truth. I wouldn't stand here and preach something I did not believe. I get in trouble all the time by preaching things I do believe. That's what it is. I... But I believe it because God said so, and that settles it to me. I believe that such as--that those people, that little girl, little boys, and these people here called Him from glory just the same as blind Bartimaeus stopped Him on the road. You believe that? [John 20:23]
L-80 How many of you is sick, raise your hands, the sick and needy. Amen. How many believes that that same God... I don't know. All right. I--I... Something struck me then. He's here. The Angel of the Lord that you see in that picture, God being my judge, at the day of the judgment you'll find out He's right here now. That's right. The Angel of the Lord is here.
Somebody somewhere, somewhere is suffering. They've got faith. Something's moved. Somebody has done something somewhere, or done something. He wouldn't have come like that and me trying to hold this to a Gospel service.
You have any prayer cards? You don't. Well, you don't need them. You don't need them. You have faith and believe. If I've told... You young converts here, being He's here... All right. Friends, you'll never know what a feeling that is when He--He strikes you. You know what you're talking about then. That's right. Yes, you know what you're speaking of. Oh, I'm just as positive as I can be. You have faith now. Just believe.
L-81 Sarah set in the tent and she said within herself. She laughed, and the Angel turned and said, "Why did Sarah laugh, saying within herself that this couldn't be so?" Is that right? How about the woman that touched His garment and He looked? Don't you believe He's that same High Priest tonight? And you young converts, I want to prove to you that that One that you touched... Sister honey here, you and the young--the sister setting here, and the brother, the little boy, and that little boy and girl setting over there, I want to show you that it was the same Lord Jesus that made the promise. Oh, my. Oh, I wish I could feel this way all the time. Right. Have faith in God. Pray, all of you. Just be in prayer. [Genesis 18:13], [Luke 8:45], [Hebrews 4:15]
L-82 I'm going to turn my back to you. What that Angel of the Lord did? To show you we're in the days of Sodom, and show you we're at the last days, that this country here is a modern Sodom, to show you that the Angel of the Lord is still the Angel of the Lord... Now, you have no prayer cards, so we won't have no prayer line. But you don't have to have prayer cards. The only thing I ask you to do is believe that I've told you the truth, the Gospel truth, and it's God.
I'll look at these ministers back here. You believe this, brethren? With all your heart? You believe the Gospel I've been preaching is the truth? God bless your hearts. There's an awful good feeling behind me, faith of you brethren. A lot of times this week I've chopped and cut and everything else. I don't want you to think I've hurt you. I love you. You're my brothers. But you yourselves know that the church is moving away. We got to bring it back, bring it back. We've got to bring it back.
L-83 Now, here it is. There's a woman before me. I'm looking right at her. Somebody out there is touching the High Priest. I see what she looks like here. Just a minute. Somebody touched Him, just the same as the woman touched our Lord Jesus. That's what this woman done, and I'm just acting in His place. You see?...?... Are you understanding? Now, it'll be... I'll catch it just a moment. There's... It comes from... Now, somebody touched Him. Each one of you is praying. Believe now with all your heart. Set real quiet; believe.
Yes, sir. It's a lady sitting right over there in a corner. Yes, that's right. You have a prayer card... No, I know you don't have a prayer card. I don't know you; God does know you. See, I want all of you look this way. Can't you see that Light hanging over the woman there? See that--that little--just right above her. See that mystic looking Light hanging right above her there? Now, watch, It's opening up. The woman has been examined by a doctor of some sort, and they told her she had a growth, some sort of a... She's pending an operation, but she won't receive the operation. She's trying to trust the Lord for her healing. If that's right, raise up your hand, lady.
L-84 Now, you young converts... That lady setting right next to her there, she seemed to be a... That Light moved right over to that lady setting right by her. There It is again. I thought It went back to the lady, but It went to that lady. She's a believer, a Christian believer. She's got some kind of a--like an allergy, a breaking out on her hands. That's right. I don't know you, do I, lady? You don't have any prayer card, of course. Do you believe that you're going to get well? You believe that was God? You--you believe that, that--that I can tell you what you was praying about? You believe that? By God... (Keep quiet, keep quiet, set down, please.) You believe? Mrs. Bossler, you believe now that you're going to be made well? God bless you. That's who you are, isn't it?
L-85 What about you, little fellow, setting right here? Here It is right here to you. You believe? I see you're kind of stooped in your shoulders, like that. But there's something else besides that's wrong with you. If God will tell me what's wrong with you, will you believe me to be His prophet, His servant? It's a stomach trouble you're suffering with. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD. That's right. Not a ulcer, you're just nervous and upset in your stomach, is what's doing it. That's exactly. If you believe with all your heart...
L-86 You believe? Now, be real reverent. Don't move. You see, each time you move that--that--that does something. You see? Be reverent. What about somebody this direction here? It's come over here, now It's go over here. You believe? When we get three or four, say--say something. Have faith; don't doubt. I just have to watch wherever I... I wish I could just say this or that. I can't. I just have to watch. Faith is so unconscious to people...
Little lady setting right there looking at me. No, right behind you, sister, right... Yeah. Got trouble with your eyes. That's right. You--you believe He will heal you of that? If you don't, you'll lose your sight. It's getting dimmer all the time. You just believe with all your heart. You believe God can tell me who you are? You know I don't know you. Mrs. Johnson, you can go home and be well...?...
L-87 The lady setting right next to her, you had to get up and go away a few minutes ago. Satan tried his best to rob you from this. You believe God can tell me about your trouble? Would you accept me as His prophet, or His servant? You believe that with all your heart? I don't know you. I never seen you in my life, but you really got a contact with God right now. Right. You're very seriously ill. That's right. It's a gallbladder condition. That is right. Another thing, you have enlarged heart. That's exactly right. Mrs. Miller, raise up your hand if that's right. Go, receive your healing. Jesus Christ makes you whole.
L-88 I challenge you to believe that. I--I just--I just ask you to believe it. All right. Have faith in God. Do you believe Him? "Jesus, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me." Do you believe Him with all your heart? Then hear me, listen. How many believers is here, raise your hand. All right, if you're a believer... Now, put your hand down. Every one of you is believers. How many are sick, raise your hands. All right, believers, lay your hands on one another. I'll quote the same Word. "These signs shall follow them that believe." This is it. Do you believe it? Now, you pray for somebody. You lay your hands on somebody by you, around you, up there in the balcony. Yes, believe.
That lady setting out there in the middle there, suffering with that nervous condition...?... All right...?... I don't know you, never seen you in my life. Is that right? You been nervous, have for years. Christ heals you, makes you well.
Way up there in the balcony. Amen. He heals every one of you if you'll believe it. Now, pray for one another. Lay your hands on each other. [Mark 16:17]
L-89 Heavenly Father, the faith of this people brought the Lord Jesus Christ in the form of the Holy Ghost back into their midst tonight, saving the lost and healing the sick. O Lord, they are believers. They got their hands on one another. They believe that You are the same yesterday, today, and forever, and the same God. "O Jesus, Thou Son of David," they're screaming out. May the power that raised up Jesus from the grave raise them to their feet from the testimony, shouting and praising the glory of God. May they stand like Bartimaeus, looking at their hands until they see that the power of God has healed them. Grant it, Lord. [Hebrews 13:8]
L-90 Keep praying, keep praying, just keep praying. O Lord, there's only one thing could keep a spontaneous healing service, and that would be unbelief. I've noticed around over the crowd as I look out through here, Lord, see that little streak of dark trying to hold back that glorious Light yonder that's circling around, trying to find its way down through that darkness to touch somebody. O Father God, give me strength, give me faith. May the people understand that You have proved, Lord, that I'm telling them the truth. You said when You was here on earth, "If I do not the works of My Father, then believe Me not." If I do not the works of my Saviour, then may they believe me not. But Lord, You are doing the same works that You did when You were here on earth. O Father, I pray now that they do believe in a portion. Give me faith to break that blackness from over them, Lord, that that power and light of God might fall upon every soul in here, that it might heal every one of them.
Satan, you're exposed. Why, you're a devil, and you're trying to hold this group of people. I challenge you in the Name of Jesus Christ, come out of them people and leave them alone. [John 10:37]

61-0216 - First Assembly Of God Of Long Beach, Long Beach, CA (Paragraphs: 86 - 96)
L-87 Now, there's not a person here that I know. I believe I was hunting a few weeks ago with this young man setting right here. Aren't you some relation to my good friend... Aren't... You're Brother Norman's brother-in-law; I believe that's right, isn't it? All right. That's the only person, and Brother and Sister Smith setting here, Brother Gene, and that's all I know of. I'm going to turn and--yes, Sister Upshaw, bless your heart, Sister Upshaw. Oh, how I love Brother Willy Upshaw. Your meeting that night, Brother Kopp, when I looked there and seen, I was trying to talk, and seen him where he fell off of that wagon, hurt his back, and seen they couldn't do nothing for him. Never heard of him in my life. And there he was, Willy D. Upshaw. I said, "How..." Ern come to him. Said, "What about that man?"
I said, "He's run for president one time and would've had the election, if it hadn't been his stand against whiskey and the wrong things. The Democratic party would elected him. But he--he took his stand." And I said, "All these years, sixty-six years, you been on these crutches and wheelchair. But God takes him off of it now." And how sweet. When I get upon the other side I'll see a young handsome looking man coming down and say, "You remember me, Brother Branham? I'm Brother Upshaw." See his little sweetheart there, all of them together. I remember how you cried that night, Sister Upshaw, when you seen him rise up, run to the platform and touched his toes with his hands at about eighty years old. My, how God can do great things.
L-88 All right. The Angel of the Lord set with His back turned. Now, now, I hope you all get this. I am not the Angel of the Lord; I'm William Branham. See? I'm your brother. But He was dwelling in human flesh then that He created Himself and just disappeared. Do you believe that? Now, do you believe that was God? The Bible said it was God. Abraham said it was. What was it? A sign that in the last days... Now, remember, when He come in the days of the Lord Jesus, He--God dwelt in Jesus, don't you believe that? That was a virgin born body, a Seed that come from God Himself. And in that Blood cell, when it was broke at Calvary for our sins, then it sanctified the church, that the Holy Spirit could dwell in the church and continue the works of God on down. "Ye are My witnesses, after you've received power." That's right. [Acts 1:8], [Revelation 11:3]
L-89 Now, if this, if I've told the truth, then let the Holy Spirit speak to you tonight. I'll turn my back; you pray. See if it's the same Holy Spirit. Now, He has to work with you the same as He works with me. Some of you brethren out here pray for those out there in the audience, ministers and so forth. We'll have the time, ministers. The heavenly Father knows that I do this for no other purpose, but that the--the word that I preach might be made manifest to the church in this day, that the Pentecostal church has gotten away from God. It must come back. It's the Laodicean age.
And, God, if I've said anything against anyone to harm, that wasn't You telling me, You forgive me, Lord, but I did it just the way You gave it to me. So I pray, Father, that You'll vindicate. I spoke of You; now speak that I told truth, Lord. I commit it to You in the Name of the Lord Jesus.
There's several hundred people setting there, many of them sick. I don't know a one of them, You do. I pray that You'll make Your Word fulfilled. When You came here on earth, You said that You did it that it might be fulfilled, which was spoke of the prophet Isaiah, what the Messiah would do. Now, Father, may it be fulfilled again, for You promised it. That's the reason You permit it, in Christ's Name. Amen.
L-90 Now, there's many praying. If I can... If somebody, like the little woman, can touch His garment... Yes, right before me now is coming a vision, and it happens to be it is a woman; she's setting--way I'm standing now it would be to my right, this way. She's suffering with a gallbladder trouble. She has heart trouble also. With my back turned, if I call her name, maybe she'd understand. Mrs. Hanson, stand up and receive your healing.
Now, I've never looked around yet. Now, do you believe? Just have faith. Where was the lady at? She's back this way somewhere. Right there? Was those things true, lady? Are we strange to one another? If it is, wave your hand like this. Was all true, was it? Then the same Angel of God that was setting there at Sodom and Gomorrah to give a sign to Abraham that the hour was drawing close for the burning of Sodom, is here tonight. Just a gift to let myself relax...
L-91 I see Him on someone else. I hope... Now, don't let me stay too long. Just watching a vision, a woman setting here praying. She's got diabetes. Miss Finch, do you believe that God will make you well? If you do, stand up, raise up your hand. I do not know you, is that right? If that's right, wave your hand. Is that what's wrong with you? What? All right. You touched Something, didn't you? What... You didn't touch me, did you? You touched--you touched God that's... God bless you.
L-92 What do you think young man, rubbing your nose? You're in need of God too. You believe? God will describe to me what's your trouble. You don't have a prayer card, I guess... No, there's no... That's right. There's no prayer card. You--you believe me to be His prophet, or His servant, I mean to say. Excuse me for saying that; I'm not a prophet; I'm just His servant. Bothered with nervousness, just so nervous you can't hold yourself still. Isn't that right? If that's right raise up your hand. Do you believe what I'd say would come to pass? You believe it? Will you obey me as His prophet? Then I take that nervousness off of you in the Name of Jesus Christ. Don't never speak of it no more. Go and be made well. Did not our Lord say, "If you say to this mountain, 'Be moved...'" If thou canst believe... [Matthew 17:20], [Mark 11:23]
L-93 Man setting right back there looking at me. He'd like to come up here; he wants me to lay hands on him. That's right. That hardening of the arteries would leave you if you'd just believe it right where you're setting. Will you do it? Setting right back there, kinda gray, with glasses on, setting right back there looking at me. If you'll believe with all your heart, don't doubt... You believe it?
L-94 Now, look, circled right from that man and he lost it. Rubbing your eyes and turned around and looked with the little... That's it. The lady setting right here, It's right over you with the heart trouble, setting there. Do you believe that God will make you well, right there? Yes. All right. You get the healing; it's yours. All right. God bless you.
L-95 Be alert; be ready to catch it at any minute. Mighty sweet person, got a lot of faith, you're in a good contact with God. I don't know you, but do you believe that God will heal that heart trouble you got too? You got trouble with your leg too, don't you have, your limb? Yes, you got a daughter that's unsaved, you're praying for. That's right. You're not from here; you're from North Hollywood. You know who I'm talking about now? You want me to call your name? Miss Beard, stand up on your feet and accept it in the Name of Jesus Christ.
You believe? Now, what is it, friends? Is those things true, lady? If it is, wave your hand. See, it's right. See? Now, do you believe? I never seen the woman in my life. Now, see, the whole building... Now, they--they touched me (See?); I know it's just enough now. They watch me, you know, when I have enough.
L-96 Now, let me tell you, my friend; I've told you the truth. God's vindicated that I've told you the truth. The very anointing of God that's preaching this same Word and saying these things, is the very anointing Who declares that God is here doing the same thing. Do you believe with all your heart? How many of you want to receive the Holy Ghost, raise up your hand, say, "I'd like to receive the Holy Ghost." The pastor tells me there's a room right down there just waiting for somebody to come down to be--go in to be prayed for. Why don't you receive it? Go down there and--and receive the Holy Ghost. Let's all stand on our feet at one time. Let's raise up our hands and give God praise, everybody in your own way. Don't... Just believe it.
Heavenly Father, I give praise and glory unto You for all the mighty works, all the things that You have done. You're the infallible God. You're the One that's the same yesterday, today, and forever, You never fail.
Now, put your hands over on one another. Lay your hands on one another to be healed and receive the Holy Ghost. Now, pray for that person. Pray for one another. Up in the balcony, up there, put your hands on one another; pray for one another, that you might receive the Holy Ghost. If you'll not doubt, God will give every one of you the baptism of the Holy Ghost and will heal everyone. [Hebrews 13:8]

61-0217 - First Assembly Of God Of Long Beach, Long Beach, CA (Paragraphs: 76 - 85)
L-77 Oh, my. I know I've told the truth; I know it. "My sheep will hear My voice." Jesus said, like He said there, the sign how do you know He's here? Listen, the Holy Ghost is right here now. I hear Him speak with tongues, interpret. I see Him do signs and wonders. And see Him even... And the last sign was to be the Messiahic sign. Jesus said, "Just..." What was the last sign that Abraham had just before Sodom burned? That Angel stood there, God Himself in flesh. We've took that, haven't we? Abraham called Him, "Elohim," God. Stood there a Stranger, and watch what He called Abraham: called Abraham his new name; he just got it a few days before. Instead of Abram he was Abraham. Called Sarah her princess name. "Abraham, where is your wife, Sarah?" How did He know he's married, and how did He know he had a wife, and how did He know her name was Sarah? [John 10:1-16]
Said, "She's in the tent behind You."
Said, "I'm going to ('I,' personal pronoun there.), I'm going to visit you according to the time of life. You know, I'm going to do this; I promised you. You've waited for it for twenty-five years."
And Sarah in her heart laughed and said, "Would I ever have joy with my Lord, seeing I'm old and passed the years of bearing. He's old too."
And the Angel said, "Why did Sarah laugh, saying in her heart, 'It just can't happen.'" Jesus said, "As it was in the days of Sodom, so shall it be in the coming of the Son of man." [Genesis 18:1-15], [Luke 17:29-30]
L-78 How did He--how did He condemn the nations? When He stood to Peter and said, "Your name is Simon; you're the son of Jonas."
He said, "Oh, that's--that's it."
When Philip come, got Nathanael, told Nathanael, said, "Nothing good could come out of--of Nazareth."
Said, "Come. See?"
And when he come, looked at him, He said, "Behold, an Israelite in whom there is no guile."
Said, "Rabbi, when did You know me?"
Said, "Before Philip called you when you were under the tree, I saw you." [John 1:40-50]
L-79 Went up to the way of Samaria. That was the Jews, now the--now the Samaritans. Not Gentiles, we wasn't looking for no Messiah. We had a club on our back; we were heathens (See?) worshipping idols. So He didn't perform that before Gentiles. But if He did it to the Jews and Samaritan... There's only three races: Ham, Sham and Japheth's people. Now, if He did that to Samaritan woman, He'd went to her; He said, "Bring Me a drink."
She said, "Ah, it's not customary for you, being a Jew, ask a Samaritan woman some--such."
And He said, "But if you knew Who you were talking to."
Said, "Go, get your husband then."
She said, "I have no husband."
Said, "That's right; you had five."
She said, "Sir, I perceive that You're a prophet. Now, we know, we--we have good teachers down in our country, down here in Samaria. We know that when Messiah cometh, He will do this, but Who are You?"
He said, "I'm He."
She went into the city and said, "Come, see a Man, Who told me the things I've done: isn't this the very Messiah?" And the Bible said they believed Him to be the Messiah on account of what He told the woman. She knowed more about God than half the preachers of Hollywood do. Ha, that's right. Being in her condition. 'Cause she was trained by the Holy Spirit There you are. He's God; He's still God; He certainly is. [John 4:5-30]
L-80 Look at him in the tree that morning when he looked down, Zacchaeus was going to hide (You see?), where He was at. When He come by He stopped and said, "Zacchaeus, come down, I'm going home with you for dinner." [Luke 19:1-10]
Look at blind Bartimaeus touching Him out there. "Thou Son of David, have mercy." Stopped Jesus, and all that racket going on. See, He knew it. [Mark 10:46-52]
Look at the woman touched His garment and run off and set down. See? He said "Who touched Me?"
Peter rebuked Him, said, "Why say a thing like that? Look at the people here, shaking hands with You and calling You a Rabbi," or so forth. "Why'd do You say a thing like that?"
Said, "But I got weak. Virtue, strength went from Me." He looked around, seen the little woman that done it, said, "Thy faith has saved thee; your blood issue's over." [Luke 8:43-47]
Now, He promised that same thing at the closing of the Gentile age. How many believes that? Promised it in the Bible. Now, does He keep His promises? I challenge you to believe it. Amen. That's how much I know He's here. You believe it? You just have faith and don't doubt it; you believe it. The Bible said, "If thou canst believe..." Is that right? Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.
L-81 That woman setting right there is praying for her daughter, got inwardly bleeding. Do you believe with all your heart? All right, you can have what you ask for then. Amen. I don't know the person, never seen them in my life. You believe with all your heart?
L-82 Right back, way back there, don't you see that Light standing right yonder? It's over a colored woman setting in this end row back there. She's got on a bluish dress and a red kind of a white collar. She's praying for a brother-in-law that's got cancer. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD. Stand up back there, woman, ever who I called. That is true, isn't it? Go re... As you have believed, so be it. I never seen the woman in my life. I hold my hands; I never seen her. You believe He's here? What did she do? She touched Something.
L-83 I turn my back. Say, "You're looking at them," psychology. Listen, believe. Let the Lord God show Hisself God. Now, I see a man standing before me. I just speak and whoever it is. The man's suffering with a heart trouble. He's wearing a dark suit and some kind of a little colonel tie like. He's a small man. Is he on his feet yet? His name is Coats. Believe with all your heart, and receive your healing if you'll believe with all your heart. God bless you, go home be healed. You believe? I hold my hand; I've never seen him in my life.
L-84 Do you believe? Then lay your hands on one another. "These signs shall follow them that believe."
It shall be light in the evening time,
The path of glory you will surely find.
Do you believe it? Now, pray one for another. Put your hands... Pray one another and you can be healed. You won't even have to have a prayer line tomorrow night.
L-85 The Seal of God is the baptism of the Holy Ghost. The mark of the beast is to reject It. Receive ye the Holy Ghost. How many wants the baptism of the Holy Ghost, stand on your feet. How many wants to be sealed in the Kingdom of God by the Holy Ghost, stand on your feet. Stand up and receive it. That's right. Up in the balcony, don't turn away. Stand on your feet; receive the Holy Ghost. Amen. Stand up, and believe it. [Ephesians 1:13], [Luke 17:30]
Now, all you that has got the Holy Ghost, look who's standing there, stand up and lay your hands on them. Stand up and lay your hands on them that's seeking the Holy Ghost. Let the ministers, stretch out their hands up this way. "And they sent and got Peter and John, and he laid his hands upon them, and the Holy Ghost came on them."
Lord Jesus, I commit this service to You. Fill them with the Holy Ghost, Lord. Heal them in the Name of Jesus Christ. You are here.
