61-0402 - Branham Tabernacle, Jeffersonville, IN (Paragraphs: 116 - 132)
L-117 As we have our heads bowed, everywhere, there perhaps is sickness in here; there's no doubt at all in here but what there's sickness in amongst the people. I want to know how many in here that's out-of-town, that's sick, raise your hand: out-of-town. Well, they're just everywhere.
All right, you may raise your head. I'm going to ask that so you can see. All that's out-of-town, that I don't know, that's out-of-town and I don't know you, raise your hand, say, "I'm sick." Raise your hands everywhere now, so I can just get a general idea.
L-118 If He don't keep this, there's no resurrection. If He does keep it, it's assurance of the resurrection. It shows that the Easter Seal, that He is not dead, but He's a-living. Then to condemn that, would be blasphemy against the Holy Ghost, and it's unforgivable. Now, if the Holy Spirit will come into this meeting...
I was--thought maybe we'd just raise the people up, but we can't have a prayer line. Look here, just jammed in here, the little kiddies all over the altars and everywhere. We can't have a prayer line.
But, look, I want to ask you something. Is He just at one place, or is He omnipresent? He's everywhere. Now, how could I know you, that you that raised your hands that I do not know you, and you're strangers here? I don't want any of the Tabernacle people; I'll see you later. See? But just the people, so that you'll see it's out-of-town people that I don't know. Let the Holy Spirit speak whether it's right or not. Let Him do the talking, then my words will be one thing; and if it's God's Word, God will keep that Word.
L-119 Now remember, Pentecostal, the real true believers of God, has always been in the minority. And they're a bunch that's laughed at and made fun of, and people are not willing to take that way. And may the Holy Spirit...
I want to ask you people something. Now, see, is God a living God? Is He present? Then if He is, I want to ask you something. Now, after I've spoken, how many in here that's--believes that that's the truth? [Congregation says, "Amen"--Ed.] Is there any in here would like to say, "I am not a Christian, Brother Branham. I would like to be. Pray for me." I can't call no altar up here, because I--I can't. Just raise up your hand, say, "Pray for me." Is there any in the building? God bless you, you, you, you. That's fine. All right. God bless you, around, everywhere. All right, good. All right.
L-120 Now, you have a right, after a message like this, you have a right to call my hand, and say, "Brother Branham, you've preached to us something, that in these last days you said'the last sign was when He performed, showed that He was God."
And I heard a Jewish preacher the other day, had just been... I was... By my message on the--on the red heifer offering, the man come and received Christ, come out from a church, had been raised through a line of rabbis for years and years and years, for--for four or five hundred years, way back, all rabbis. And the man heard my message, slipped into a meeting and heard that "red heifer," and was converted by it to Christianity. And stood in a church the other day, and say, "Anybody that wouldn't believe that there was three Gods instead of One..." He had been believing in one God till that time. He backslid, instead of doing anything else. He...
L-121 God, speak. Now, I raised my hand; I don't know them, don't know them. Now, if He's still God, won't He do the same thing? The woman that touched His garment...
Some of you women, or some of you there that had raised your hand, a woman somewhere, I believe... Where? The little lady on the end, would you raise your hand? All right. You, all right, I'm a stranger to you? I don't know you? All right.
You just see if He's still the High Priest that can be touched by the feeling of your infirmity. I never seen you in my life. You're a stranger to me. I know nothing about you. God does know you. And if He can reveal to me by His Holy Spirit, the resurrected Christ Who come here, and give me a temporarily resurrection by my spirit, that my spirit goes away now and His Spirit comes in, then to let you know whether He's alive or not. Now, I don't know you. That's me, me and my spirit; we don't know you. But He knows you. But He wants to borrow my body to prove that He's the resurrected Christ. I'm so happy to loan it to Him, give it to Him, anything He can get out of it. [Hebrews 4:15]
L-122 If God will tell me what you're here for, will you believe me? You will. You have varicose veins. If that's right, raise up your hand. You got more than that: got a hernia. That's right. You're not from this town. You're from Lima, Ohio. Your name is Mrs. Stoddard. That's right. Your husband's setting behind you. That's right. You believe God can tell me what's his trouble? He's got trouble with His back; he's suffering with his back. If that's right, raise up your hand, sir. Do you believe?
L-123 Somebody else down here raised up their hands, down along through here. Here, that lady there. All right. I don't know you. That's your husband setting next to you there. The thing you're wanting is the baptism of the Holy Ghost. If that's right, raise up your hand. That's right. All right, believe on the Lord; just don't doubt at all.
Seen somebody coming from a distance, but I couldn't tell just where it was at. Yeah, it's the man setting right here; I see him now. He's a stranger to me also. You got gallbladder trouble, sinus trouble. You're not from here. You're from Georgia, a place called like Hubbermill, Georgia. All right, believe now, and go back home and be healed.
L-124 You believe with all your heart? There's one setting right back here behind; that Light's standing over the person. They're praying for a loved one who's got cancer, not saved. Believe; have faith, and don't doubt.
[Brother Branham pauses--Ed.] I'm just watching. See... [Brother Branham pauses] Uh-huh. Here it is over here. The lady that's got her head down, praying. She got trouble with her feet and her knees. I don't know you, do I? We're strangers, raise up your hand. You go back to... Your home's in New Hampshire; that's where you come from. Believe, and the Lord will make you well.
L-125 A lady setting back there with the little girl, praying for her, with kidney trouble, setting right back there. She's from Georgia also. Mrs. Cason, if you believe with all your heart? You accept it? All right, then go home, be made well. I don't know the woman, never seen her in my life. If we're strangers to one another, wave your hand, lady. That's right.
Here's another setting right back here, a man. He's from Georgia too. Don't know him, never seen him. But I seen him come up from that peach country. Right. He's got a liver trouble (That's right.) and arthritis. He's setting right on the back seat. You believe with all your heart, sir? All right, go back and be healed.
There's someone setting next to you, a lady, way back in the very back row. No, it's not for her. She's praying for her son. That's right. You believe that God can tell me what's the matter with your son, lady? I'm a stranger to you, but God knows you. Ulcers, and a mental trouble, and he's not here; Dayton, Ohio. If that's right, raise up your hand. Now, believe.
L-126 Do you know He lives? Is He the same Jesus yesterday, today, and forever? There's at least eight or ten people I never seen in my life. And is it true? Now, may the God of heaven, Who's present, heal and make well these. Well, it comes from the anointing of the Holy Spirit, not me. May the God that can discern the thoughts of the mind, and prove Himself to be Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever, let Him come forward and heal the sick. He's God forevermore. Do you believe that? Now, how many wants to believe Him right now, and accept Him as Saviour, and Healer, and as a Baptizer, and a coming King? In the Name of Jesus. Oh, hallelujah. What? The Easter Seal, the infallible Easter Seal. [Hebrews 13:8]
L-127 What's the next thing? The transformation of this body to meet the Son that's coming. We'll be changed in a moment, in a twinkle of an eye. Have all your paper seals you want to; but the real Seal of Easter is the Holy Ghost in the human heart. Do you accept it? Do you believe in His resurrection? Do you believe He's alive forevermore? You believe that He's here? Do you now accept Him as your Saviour, as your Healer, as your God, as your coming King? Believe with all your heart. [Revelation 1:18]
L-128 As these handkerchiefs, praying over them, God, in the Name of Jesus Christ. A lot of people anoint them. I believe they took from the body of Paul handkerchiefs and aprons, and they were healed. You believe that?
Now, how many more is in here, sick? Now, the Tabernacle people, and around this community here, that's around here, now you raise your hands, from around here. Now, do you believe that He's here? Do you believe the Holy Spirit's here? Now, wait, why do we wait for anything else? He's here, so let's act upon it! Charlie, what do you think? Amen. Hallelujah. Oh, it's got to happen. [Acts 19:12]
L-129 I cannot heal anyone. I cannot do it. There's nothing in me to heal with. But if you'll accept this Spirit that's on me now, there couldn't be enough devils in hell make you doubt it any more, and you've got to be healed. I'm not the Healer; He's the Healer. I can't see visions; He's the One Who speaks. It's just my body He's using.
Now, that same God said, "These signs shall follow them that believe." How many believers is here? Are you sure you're a believer? Well, He said, "These signs shall follow them that believe. If they lay hands on the sick, they shall recover." Is that right? Now, put your hands on one another, and let me pray for every one of you. O God. Oh, brother, something's got to take place. Something's just got to happen. [Mark 16:17]
L-130 O great Easter Seal, You're not the lily in the pot, but the Lily in the Valley. You Who stoke--spoke through that boy the other day, You have come forth by Your Word. You made manifest that You're Truth. You are Truth, Lord. You are the Resurrection. You said, "I am the Resurrection and the Life. He that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. Whosoever liveth and believeth in Me, shall never die. I am the Resurrection and Life."
[] It'll not be spoken, then you'll wonder. But while you can hear, obey.
O God, Who created the heavens and earth, these people are praying for one another. When You rose on Easter morning, You proved that You was Messiah. You proved that You was Messiah, before You rose. You proved that You was, by the sign of the Messiah, the Seal of God that was in You. You were Sealed away with God to do nothing but what He said. You had said, "I do always that which pleases the Father." That's keep His Word. For to please God, we must believe His Word and keep His Word. And then, Father, so is it today, that every son or--of God, every daughter of God, in order to please God, must keep God's Word. And, God, we're keeping Your Word now by laying hands on one another. And I'm praying for this audience. [John 11:25-26]
L-131 After we have heard the Word preached, and seen the strangers raise their hands, see the great Holy Spirit go out there and tell them the very thoughts from their heart, and who they are, where they come from, what's happening, and all about, how could people doubt any more? God, that's a great reward for these who's stood this morning around this great church walls here, and their limbs aching, and little mothers with their babies, and dads, and aged, and all, waiting, watching, watching to see one sign of the living God... Then see Him move in on the scene, and prove that He's Jehovah, that He's Jesus, the resurrected One, "I'm alive forevermore, and have the keys of death and hell," because He broke the seal off of it. He broke the seal of death. He broke the seal of the tomb. He broke the seal of hell. He broke the seal of the grave. And He opened the seal to the Tree of Life, and baptized us by His Holy Spirit into that Tree of Life, and made us sons and daughters of God, and commissioned us to lay hands on one another, "And these signs shall follow them that believe; if they lay hands on the sick, they shall recover." Father, God, it has to be. [Revelation 1:18], [Mark 16:17-18]
L-132 I pronounce by the power of the Gospel, by the God of heaven Who ordained me and sent me to preach the Gospel, by the God Who wrote the Word, by the Angel Who's present to confirm the Word, I say this because of the faith that I have in the people, that the devil will have to leave every sick person in here, every afflicted person, and the power of God shall raise them up to good health and strength again, as a memorial of this Easter service. Come out, Satan. You are defeated. Jesus conquered you nineteen hundred years ago, and you are defeated. Come out of the people, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

61-0409 - Illinois Wesleyan University, Bloomington, IL (Paragraphs: 63 - 82)
L-64 Now, please, I'm ask again, don't--don't walk around, please. See? The Holy Spirit is just as timid as It can be. And sometimes when you're moving... See, you're a spirit; you're a soul. Then when you move, that interferes. See? Just set real quiet; be reverent. Now, after something is done, if the Holy Spirit does something, you want to say, "Praise the Lord," all right. But when you're coming into the contact of the Spirit of God, keep real quiet. Just keep in prayer.
And you out there that doesn't have a prayer card, you say this: "Lord Jesus, I know that man doesn't know me. And I know he's just a man. But I believe You're God. And I believe he's read the Scripture. He told me the truth, so I'm sick and needy. Let me touch You, Father." Find out what happened. Say, "Now, You speak through him; he's just a mouthpiece." Looky, this microphone is a mute until something speaks into it. So would I be; I don't know any of you.
L-65 Now, everybody in that prayer line that knows that I know nothing about you, raise up your hands, all along there, knows I don't know nothing about you? See? And here's my hands. I know, I've never seen them people before in my life, as I know. There's not a person along there, that I'd ever seen. I can't see a person in the building that I know, unless this is my good friend Brother Skaggs from Chicago, setting over on this... Is that you, Brother Skaggs? I thought it was there. And I know that there's Brother Fred Sothmann, I believe is here somewhere in the building. And perhaps, Tom Simpson, I suppose, is here somewhere in the building. I don't know. Where are you? Are you here, Brother Fred and Brother Tom? I seen their car out... Yes, right here, way back in the back. All right.
Now, be real reverent. All right, the... Now, if the people gets a little weary, give them a chair.
Just come up here, lady.
Now, here is the Word. How many believes I read to you and preach to you the Word of God, the promise of God? Now, here's God's Word. Now, here's a person that I've never seen before; will It work? It will if she believes. And I believe, and I can yield myself to God, as by a gift and let Him, just get rid of myself and let Him talk. So if there's anything done, like would be the Lord Jesus, it would have... You'd know it has to be Spirit.
L-66 Now, let's take just like I was quoting a few minutes ago, Saint John 4. Here's a lady and a man that's never met before. Now, being strangers to each other, and it's just in a little panoramic like I was talking about. Now, Saint John 4, Jesus met a woman of Samaria. And He talked to her a little while, till He caught her spirit and then told her her trouble.
And now, if He would do that same thing to you tonight, knowing that I don't know you, and God knows you, and you don't know me, or 'less you just know me by name or something... But if--if He'd do the same thing, would it make you believe with all your heart? It will. Would it make the audience believe with all their heart?
Now, every soul in here under the control of the Holy Spirit in the Name of Jesus Christ. And ever who's the--on, the engineer on these microphones, if my voice gets low, 'cause I don't know what I'm saying, if it gets low, step it up, so the audience can hear. Now, be real reverent and quiet, while we talk to the woman just a moment. If you'll stand right across here, so I'll be sure that they hear it. Just across... [John 4:4], [Hebrews 13:8]
L-67 Now, our Lord when He came to the woman of Samaria, He said, "He had need to go by Samaria to see the woman." And but, of course, God the Father had sent Him up there. And He met the woman, and He knew nothing of her, never seen her in His life, she'd never seen Him. But yet, He had to give that Samaritan woman the same sign He had give the Jew. And now, you're the Gentile woman. See? Now, He has to be the same Jesus, yesterday, today, forever. Is that right? Now, if He would do something like that, you know then it'd have to come from some Spirit, you know, it'd have to be a Spirit.
Now, you could take the Pharisee side, the religionists of that day, and say it was the devil. Then that's up to you and God. But if you'd say It was Christ, then you receive His reward.
L-68 Now, if the Holy Spirit will tell me, I'd say--if I'd come here and say, "Sister, I have a gift of healing," lay my hands upon you, and say, "Glory to God, the Bible says, 'these signs shall follow that believe, lay hands on the sick, they shall recover.'" That's true. Well, you could go believe that. That'd be all right.
But yet, there could be a little wonder in your mind. "I wonder if that is true, because the Bible said, 'If there be one among you, who's spiritual, a prophet, what he says comes to pass, then hear him. But if it doesn't, then don't hear him.'"
Now, the showdown is here now. Have I told the truth? Is that the Word of God? Is that the promise of God? If it is, then He will make it manifest. [Mark 16:17], [I Corinthians 14:37]
L-69 Now, the woman is aware that she's in the Presence of Somebody besides man, real sweet humble feeling. Is that right? If it is, just raise your hand, so the... Between me and the woman is that Spirit of Christ, that Light. The woman is here to be prayed for, because of a nervous condition. She's got a real serious condition of nerves. If that's right, raise up your hand. You believe? Eventually, I never seen a first night what will do that. Somebody in your heart, don't think you can hide your thoughts now, 'cause you can't. You said, "I guessed that." I did not.
Just for a rebuke for you, that you might know, we will see if it's so or not. See? Every time, a first night, when something is said... Now, right now, I couldn't tell you what I said to the woman. But that you might know that it's the Spirit of God, and not what you're thinking, this will be a plain rebuke to you. You're a good person, fine spirited person, but now... Yes, here It comes again. The woman's moving from me, and she's--she's bothered with a nervous condition and an intestinal trouble. That is true.
Let me show you whether you believe I'm a... the servant of the Lord or not. That woman setting right there on the end of the seat's bothered with intestinal trouble too. If that's right, raise up your hand, lady. That's right. See them devils trying to get by with it? They can't do it. It's all finished for you, lady.
L-70 You have a stomach trouble, true, nervous stomach. Here, that you might know, believe me to be God's servant standing here under this anointing; you're husband, he's here's too. He has a nervous stomach also. You're not from this state or this city; you're from Kansas. You believe God knows who you are? Mrs. Walton. Now return home; you're healed, you and your husband too. You can go home and be made well in the Name of Jesus Christ.
Now, you believe now? Could I guess have that? Whatever...
Let us just bow our heads in worship. Our heavenly Father, we thank Thee in the midst of every kind of thing You still move in on the waves, You're God. You never fail. I pray that You'll bless these people now. Amen.
L-71 All right, lady here. Do you believe that what these things are taking place is from the Spirit of God, do you, lady? Then us, being strangers to each other, then if something would have--have to happen that would have to let me know something about you. And if God can tell what you have been, surly He can tell what you will be. If He knows the--if He knows the past, He knows the future. That makes it prove that it is God. And you know that I wouldn't know nothing about that, because I'm just a man here, your brother. That's right.
Got a great faith in the audience tonight to begin with. It left me and went towards the audience.
You was so happy about your healing a few moments, you put your hand over on that woman, setting next to you. Yes. Well, that growth on your breast... If that's right, raise up your hand. Am I a stranger to you? Wave your hand back and forth.
I want to ask you something. What did she touch? She's twenty feet away from me, what did she do? She touched the High Priest. Do you see that God still lives? He's the same Lord Jesus. Just believe. God bless you.
I can only speak, as It speaks through me; I have to... Wherever It goes, I have to go with It, to... See?
L-72 You have a tumor on the breast. You have a stomach trouble also. Also, you have someone here that's sick also. Your husband. He's got... He's a preacher. And he's got a nervous stomach. Mrs. Seward, return home and be made well, both of you, and be healed in the Name of Jesus Christ.
Have faith. Don't doubt. Just believe. Do you believe that Jesus Christ... "Sirs, we would see Jesus." That's Him. See? That's--that's the Lord Jesus. Now, you have to say It's something. You know that. These people with their hands up before God, we've never met. But it's His Spirit that does these things. Just have faith.
Are you the lady now? We are strangers one to the other, I suppose; but the Lord Jesus knows us both. But if He can reveal to me something about you, that you know that I know not, would it encourage you to make you have faith to believe? [John 12:21]
L-73 You see what It does to me, It makes me so weak I can hardly stand up. We realize that. I'm sure that the audience realizes too. How many knows that that... If one vision made our Lord feel virtue go of Him, the Son of God, what would it do to me, a sinner, saved by grace? Because He said, "The works that I do shall you do also; more than this shall you do."
Now, I know the King James has greater, but take down to the original translation. See? How could you do greater? He stopped nature, raised the dead, and done everything that could be done. But more because He could be in His church universal. See? "More than this shall you do." It's His grace. [John 14:12]
L-74 You're here for somebody else. That's the daughter. You think Christ can tell me what her trouble is? It's her eyes. That is right, isn't it? You believe they're going to get well now? You've contacted Something, haven't you? You believe It to be the Lord Jesus? If He will tell me who you are, like He did the apostle that come up, would you--make you have a lot of faith to believe Him? Well, Mrs. Nickels, you return home; believe now. Jesus Christ will heal and make well.
Are you believing everyone? Please don't walk around. Please don't walk around. Please.
I do not know you. I haven't never seen you in my life; but Christ does know you. If He will describe to me what you're here for, or it might be finances, domestic, might be sickness, salvation. I do not know. I'm just a man that's standing here, us, meeting for the first time in life.
One thing, you're really nervous. That is right. And I see you trying to get from the bed, real slow. You got arthritis. That is right. And then, you've got a bad ill-effect from a operation that you had. That's right. It was a gallbladder operation. If that's right, raise up your hand. Do you believe now? Then go. As you have believed, so will it be unto you.
L-75 If I told you that God healed arthritis, would you believe it meant you? Then just go right along thanking God, saying, "Thank You, Lord."
If I told you God healed from anemic trouble, would you believe He'd heal you? Just go right on thanking God. Believe Him with all your heart.
Are you believing with all your heart, everybody with one accord? What if I didn't say one word to you, just laid hands on you, would you believe? All right, sir. Pass by, and in the Name of the Lord Jesus go and be made well. Don't doubt.
Please don't walk around. See, it grieves the Spirit from me, and I just can't hold It. See? Please. Please. I ask you kindly, as Christian, brother. I ask if you did not believe, please don't stay in the building. It's dangerous for you to stay anyhow. See? Just have faith. Don't doubt.
L-76 If I laid hands upon you, would you believe that you'd get well? Come here. In the Name of Jesus Christ, may our brother be healed.
Come. Whether I told you your trouble or not, would you believe me as His prophet, or His servant? Well, your back trouble is finished. Go and believe now. Have faith in God.
Come, lady. If I didn't say one word to you, but just laid hands on you, would you believe anyhow? Well, I want to tell you when you was in the line, standing down there, got in the line, you seen that first thing happen, the heart trouble left you, so you can go home now.
You walk different since you got in there, haven't you? The arthritis left you in the line. So just go believing with all your heart.
Sister, of course, one of the great things wrong with you, we all know, but this is one thing; there's about ninety-five percent of this audience suffering with the same thing, a nervous condition. You're real nervous, isn't that right? Let me show you how it'd hard to call them. Everyone suffering with nervous condition, raise up your hands, out there. See? See there? You've tried to find a place to start. They told you to get next to yourself. Satan told you was going to lose your mind and all these things. But it's a lie. You believe with all your heart? Then from right here, in the Name of Jesus Christ, go, and be well for the glory of God.
If thou canst believe... [Mark 9:23]
L-77 That man has been setting there weeping for a little while, looking at me. You got trouble in the chest. Do you believe that God Almighty will make you well? If you believe it, you can have it, sir. Raise up your hands; accept it; go home and be made well.
Your arthritis finished. Go home, and be made well in the Name of Jesus Christ. God bless you.
A lady just raised her hand up there, put on the back of her head with a skin trouble. You believe that God will make you well? You have a prayer card? You don't. You don't need one. You're healed anyhow. Jesus Christ healed you and makes you well.
L-78 Are you believers, each one of you out there now, solemnly believing in the Son of God? Do you believe that it's His Spirit here. If He does that, keeps His Word... You say, "Brother Branham, could you heal me?" No, I can't do it. He's already done it. See? It's something that He's done. He's just here, He... If He was standing here with this suit on, He couldn't heal you, 'cause He's already done it. He'd say, "Won't you believe it?" He is just making Hisself known that He is here. How many believes it with all your heart?
Now, I'm going to give you something to do so that every person here will be healed. How many believers did you say there was? Raise up your hands, all around, everywhere.
Jesus said, His last commission to His church... His first commission was, "Go heal the sick, raise the dead, cast out devils." His last commission was, "These signs shall follow them that believe: In My Name they shall cast devils, speak with new tongues. If they lay their hands on the sick, they shall recover." Is that right? [Mark 16:17-18]
L-79 Now, each one of you as believers, lay your hand on somebody next to you. Just lay your hand over wherever you are; just lay your hand, if you're a believer. You have just as much right to lay your hands on one another as any one else does.
Now, do not pray for yourself, because the person you got your hands on is praying for you. You pray for the next person; they'll be praying for you. And I'll pray for you from this platform, and the God of heaven Who raised up Jesus from the dead, and made Him alive forevermore, He is here tonight to fulfill every Word that He said. It's His Presence.
Now, you bow your head while I pray for you. And just believe with all your heart that God will hear my prayer. Surely you understand that it's not me. It's the Holy Spirit now has proved the Word of God right. [Revelation 1:18]
L-80 Just before we pray with your heads bowed, if there is an unbeliever, was in here, and now is a believer, would you stand to your feet to be recognized in prayer, while we pray? Somebody that wants to receive Christ as personal Saviour, would you stand to your feet to be remembered in prayer just now, while you're in His Divine Presence? Would there be those here, who would love to accept Him right now, would stand to your feet?
"He that will witness Me before men, him will I witness before My Father and the holy Angels."
Stand up just now, and say, "I will accept Jesus Christ as My Saviour. You're here, and I know it. But he's revealed You to me." But don't rely upon your church membership, because it's no good. You've got to receive the Holy Spirit or you're finished. Now, remember, it's not me; it's the Holy Spirit that's bringing His Word to pass. So if you wish to stand, stand now while we pray. [Luke 12:8]
L-81 Our heavenly Father, this is the closing hours of this world's history. We know that there is no remedy left; the coming of the Son of God is at hand. He said, "As it was in the days of Sodom, so shall it be at the coming of the Son of man." We see the atomic bombs and the hydrogen bombs, and every little nation, just waiting for somebody to let one loose. Then into the midst of the air yonder as a--a sun popping open, will this earth go. But before that takes place, and we know it could be before morning, it could at any minute. As our scientist tell us, it's long ago, three minutes until midnight. But we know the hand of God has stopped time, to wait, just long-suffering like He was in the days of Noah.
And now, You've proved Your last thing that You said You would do just before Sodom was burned. Immediately after that sign was finished, Sodom burned. God, it's just about over. But there's only One Who can draw men's hearts. You said, "No man can come to Me, except My Father draws him first." Many will see, and hear, and walk continually in darkness, ordained to this condemnation, as said the Book of Jude. Perverse minds, souls that's wandering like lost stars, raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame of unbelief. To know tonight that we stand in the Presence of the great Holy Spirit, Who brought the Word, Who wrote the Word, Who confirms the Word, and brings Hisself Present to fulfill the Word that He has promised...
I pray for these believers, who have their hands on each other. I pray with all my heart that You'll heal their sick bodies, cast away every evil spirit. [Luke 17:26-30], [John 6:44]
L-82 Satan, you've lost the--the battle. You are a--a defeated person. You have not rights any more. Our Lord Jesus died at Calvary and through His holy, unadulterated Blood, the Blood of Almighty God that was broke at Calvary, You redeemed the human race, Lord. And You defeated Satan by that same Blood, stripped him of every power that he had. And You're alive tonight here in Bloomington, Illinois, in this college ball floor. You are here tonight alive among Your people, proving Yourself, that You are the same yesterday, today, and forever. And Satan is aware of that. He knows that his hour is close.
Satan, I adjure thee by the living God, we call your bluff. You can't hold these sick people any longer. Come out of them. In the Name of Jesus Christ depart from them and let them alone. The Lord God of heaven rebuke thee, Satan. You cannot have any power. Jesus is over you. He taken the powers away from you. He redeemed the human race back to Himself. Come out, I adjure thee by the living God, that you depart from this people.
Now, as you have your hands laid upon each other, the way you pray in your own church, lay your hands on somebody by you, and pray for them. You pray just the way you do in your church. Lay your hands over on somebody, and pray for one another. And when you feel the faith of the living God, which is present now, pouring down into your soul to make you a believer, then rise in the Name of Jesus Christ and claim your healing for the glory of God. [Hebrews 13:8]

61-0410 - Illinois Wesleyan University, Bloomington, IL (Paragraphs: 97 - 101)
L-98 I stood by a young lady dying not long ago, had been in one of the meetings. She said, "Don't pray, Brother Branham," she said, "my day is gone." She said, "One night in your meeting I couldn't hardly set in the seat, just setting with my boyfriend. I asked him if he'd come: he said, 'No.'"
But Said, "That was my last day." She said, "It's too late now." The girl, a fine young lady, but was dying with a social disease they could not repair. And the undertaker, a friend of mine, pumped wa... the embalming fluid into her body. Kept moving, they couldn't find where it was at. They smelled it. Holes had eat in the woman's, young lady's body. Beautiful young lady. She said, "I should have come."
She was a church member. Yes, sir. Her pastor standing there, smoking a cigarette when she was dying. You know what she said to him, "You deceiver of men. You told me I was right; and you were wrong." She said, "I'm dying and I'm lost, and you're the cause of it." She called for a girl that comes to the Tabernacle who tried to lead her to Christ. They both went to high school together. Tried to get her to come, but it was too late. The girl was dead before she got there. She wanted to repent. She wanted to tell this girl she was sorry, 'cause she had called her a foul name, a "holy roller."
L-99 It always tells at the end of the road. That's where you have your conference with the death angel. It's coming to each one of you. You're going to meet him one of these mornings. You may meet him on the highway tonight. You may meet him in your bed tonight. You're going to meet him somewhere. You're going to have a conference. He's lurking near now. Angels of God are lurking near. You'll want them to plead your case of that day. They're speaking now, won't you come? Once more while we sing.
Trusting only in thy merit... (Don't trust your church; trust in His merits.)
Seek thy face,
Heal my wounded, broken spirit,
Save me by Thy grace.
Saviour, Saviour,
Hear my hum... (Personal workers, will you come now?)
While on others Thou art calling,
Do not pass...?...
L-100 While the personal workers are coming up, each one getting around, let the women get by the women, the men by the men. "Come now, let us reason together," saith the Lord. "Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow."
Do not pass me by.
Saviour, Saviour, hear my humble cry.
While on others Thou art calling,
Do not pass me by.
Let me at Thy throne of mercy,
Find a sweet relief... (Won't you move out now? Come, someone else come. Is there another would like to come before we change this service?)
Saviour, O Saviour, oh, hear my humble cry,
While on others Thou art calling,
Do not pass me by.
[Isaiah 1:18]
L-101 Now, how many in there would like to consecrate their life anew to Christ? Raise up your hand. Just say, "From this night, henceforth, by the help of God, I'll consecrate my life to God. Raise up your hand. All sincere Christians. "I'll reconsecrate my life to God."
All that's sick, raise up your hands and say, "I will believe on Jesus Christ for my healing right now. I will."
I believe our heavenly Father's pleased with those people coming to receive Christ. Don't you believe so?
Now, let us all stand on our feet just a moment, those folks who can, for our consecration service, consecrating ourselves to God anew. Let us stand up now to renew our vows and our consecrations to Christ. Do you love Him? (All right, change the song to I love Him, I love Him.) I love Him. Every one, now, everybody together.
I love Him, I love Him. (Now, make your consecration to Him.)
Because He first loved me.
And purchased my salvation
On Calvary's tree.
I love Him, I love Him.
Because He first loved me.
And purchase my salvation
On Calvary's tree.

Now, each bow your head now, and in consecrating prayer give yourself over to Christ, while I'm going to ask one of the ministers here, if he will come and offer the consecration prayer. Right here, brother if you will. Let us bow our heads and ask Brother...

L-104 But Father God, in regards to this message that I have preached from my heart, Your Word and Your promise, confirm it tonight, Lord. And let somebody out there have enough faith to touch You as I yield myself to You, that You might speak to me the same words like You did the woman that had the blood issue. []
Jesus Christ, that He stands not two foot from where I am now, that same Light. And I take every spirit in here under the control of the Holy Ghost for the glory of God. Now, be quiet. Don't move, because demons go from one to another. And we know that.
[]... and perform the same thing. If you won't come then say nothing evil against it from henceforth 'cause you'll be blaspheming the Holy Ghost and send your soul to torment without mercy. Let's pray.
[]... right here looking at me. You see... [] [Mark 5:25]
L-105 ... got something on his nose near his eye. It is a little growth of a thing. He's afraid of it because it keeps coming and going and peeling. He's a preacher of the Gospel. I never seen him in my life and don't know him. Have you got a prayer card, sir? You do not have one? Are those things the truth? Raise up your hand if they're the truth.
Then, I want to ask you all something. []
I am...?... sir. Is those... How could I have told him what was he was praying about and what... []
L-106 Here, a young woman looking at me, setting right here looking at me; way down, about the second person in, this row here. She suffers with a headache, something like a migraine headache. Besides that, you're a woman preacher. If that's right, raise up your hand. I pronounce you healed in the Name of Jesus Christ...?... touched the High Priest.
There's a middle-aged woman setting way back in the back. She's got on a blue coat with white trimmings on it with a blue hat on, suffering with a gallbladder condition. If you'll believe with all your heart, lady, you may receive your healing. Stand on your feet. If I don't know you, wave your hands. If those things are true, what was said by the Spirit, wave your hands. Then I pronounce you healed in the Name of Jesus Christ.
L-107 What about over in this section? Here's a little woman setting here looking at me, right out here, red coat, Light over her. She's suffering with a kidney trouble. Stand on your feet. You were praying, "Lord, let him call me." If that's right, raise up your hand. If I'm a stranger to you, wave your hand. I pronounce you healed in the Name of Jesus Christ, the Messiah, the Son of God. He is the One that says it.
I just want to ask you people something, Methodists, Baptists, and Catholics, and Presbyterians, if these Pentecostal people are wrong that speaking in tongues and so forth, why is the Messiah among then showing signs of His resurrection?
How many want to receive Him as personal Saviour and want to be filled with His Spirit? Come up here around the altar right now, you that raised your hands, go on up here. You that don't know Him and hasn't got this Eternal Life, come up now, while we stand to our feet and sing. Come right now. "I love Him, I love Him" because He first... Do you love Him? Do you want to express it?
I love Him, I love Him (Come every soul, come.)
... cause He first loved me
And purchased my salvation
On Calvary's tree.
L-108 All that doesn't know Him as your Saviour, hasn't received the Holy Ghost, why don't you come? What more... Remember, let me tell you, THUS SAITH THE SPIRIT OF GOD that's on me, this is the last sign to the Gentile church before the rapture. THUS SAITH THE WORD OF GOD, THUS SAITH THE HOLY SPIRIT that speaks, that, knows the secret of the heart, THUS SAITH THE LORD, you are receiving your last call.
Call Me fanatic if you wish to and blaspheme the Holy Ghost. Come now, if you're not ready to meet Him in the rapture. I challenge; I ask; I persuade; I beg; come now.
I love Him, I love Him...
Why would you stand in His Presence so close? All of you students here from this college that doesn't have the Holy Spirit, come young men, young women, make your way down like this. That's right.

On Calvary's tree.
I love Him, I...
Come now, come. This is the last call; may be the last one you will ever hear in your life. Tomorrow night may be too late for you.

61-0412 - Illinois Wesleyan University, Bloomington, IL (Paragraphs: 109 - 126)
L-110 Now, listen, to you Pentecostal people. Didn't Paul say, "If one of you speak in tongues and there be no interpreter, the unlearned will say, "Why, you're mad." But if there be a prophet among you who will prophesy and reveal the secrets of the heart, then they will fall down and say, "Truly, his God was with you." Is that right? Well, if you believe in speaking in tongues, how can you deny this? See? See what I mean?
L-111 Now, who is the first one? Who is--is in the line? This... Are you, young fellow? Would you come here. A young boy, think of it. Now, I never seen that boy in my life as far as I know. We're strangers to one another. If that's right, raise up your hand, sir, by this Bible. I never seen him in my life, know nothing of him. But he's standing here for something. Perhaps he's sick; I don't know, have no idea. If he's sick then I cannot heal him. But if I just lay my hands on him, say "You're to be healed. Praise God, you're healed. Go believe it." Well, that's all right. If he'd believe it, he'd get healed, I believe, if he truly believed it, not make-belief, but really believed it. Don't you believe that? The boy would get healed.
L-112 Maybe it's financial troubles. Maybe it's domestic trouble. Maybe he's married and him and his wife having trouble. Maybe him and his girlfriend's having trouble. Maybe he's not married. I don't know what he's there for, I have no idea. But it'll take the God of heaven to reveal it. Now, if He does, every person in here will know that it'll have to be some Spirit.
The boy may be a student of this school here. I don't know. If it is, I... And the Holy Spirit does something from him, I trust that he'd be gentleman enough to go tell them. See? That's right. I hope it is. [Brother Branham has problems with the microphone--Ed.] Pardon...?... This thing kind of... All right. Now, ever who's on the mike, I don't know. When the vision's strike you realize I'm looking somewhere and seeing something that happened in way back somewhere else, maybe go years back and everything.
L-113 Now, I'm going to ask you to be real reverent. When the Holy Spirit does anything and you want to praise Him, that's what you should do. But while we're setting now, let's reverently and quietly move into the Shekinah, in the Presence of God, so me and this young man here who never met in our life; standing here. Earth... People here that's going to eternity to meet God and answer at that day of the judgment... And we're looking across God's Holy Bible.
You're a man that... Perhaps, some of them give you a prayer card and it just happened to be tonight that your number was called. And that's all you know about it. We're standing here. And if God will reveal to me the secret in your heart and tell you, and if He will tell me, to tell you what you are here for, or what's wrong with you, or something that which you know I know nothing about you, would you believe it with all your heart, young man? Would all the audience believe with all their heart? For me and this young man standing here is two men eternity bound people over God's Bible laying here. See?
Now, Lord, it's up to You. I can only speak Your Word. And Your Word is the Truth, and I approach this in the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, confessing this that was ministered to me by an Angel which cannot fail because it's God.
L-114 No, you're not from this school. You're not even from this state. You're from out of state. You come from Missouri here. Right. And you're a minister, a young minister. You're in confusion of what about your ministry, what must you do. That's been on your heart and mind. You're trying to seek even for a private interview for me to find out what to do with your ministry. Stay where you are; He's fixing to move you. You believe me?
Here's another thing. You got somebody on your heart you're praying for. It's a man. He's dying with cancer and you're standing here in his behalf. Those things are true? They are. You believe now you get what you ask for? Then go; God's peace be with you.
L-115 Now, let us just raise our hands. Pentecostal people, how can you hold your peace when the very God that you love is so straight and so true? Just believe. Sworn affidavits, the Holy Spirit... All right.
I do not know you, lady. I want you to look at me across the Bible. I do not know you, do I? We're strangers to one another, but if Jesus Christ will reveal to me, in your heart just like He talked to the woman at the well, and would reveal to me something that you know... If I was anything, I--I wouldn't know, because you know I don't know you, and you don't know me. Those things are true?
Say, "What are you doing, Brother Branham?" It's the Word of God in here that's sharper than a two-edged sword, a discerner of the thoughts of the heart: Christ, the living Word of God, making Himself known in infallible proof. You believe me to be His prophet, or His servant? [Hebrews 4:12]
L-116 Yes, you're sick. If God will describe me where your sickness is, will you believe? It's in your kidneys and in your bladder. If that's right, raise your hand. One's causing the other, comes from your kidneys, irritation in the bladder. You fought it quite awhile. It's going to leave you now. You believe that?
You're not from right here. You're from another city, but you're from Illinois, Urbana. That's right. You be...?... That's true, isn't it? If I tell you who you are, will it help you? Mrs. Potts, have faith. You believe with all your heart? That should settle it.
Just be reverent. Be real reverent. Give us just about five more minutes. Next person, please.
L-117 Come, look cross the Bible. The God of heaven knows both of us. He knows why you're here; He knows why I am here. But to know you, I do not. I have no idea what you're here for. But if the God of heaven will reveal to me what you're here for, will you believe me to be His prophet? Then if... I could not heal you. You know that. But it'll only raise your faith to healing.
What would it do to you people there in the wheelchairs? Just look; just believe now. Your hour is close if you'll just believe it right now.
Please don't walk around. See, each one of you is a spirit and I got each one of your spirits in contact like a breath, the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Everything's sinful when that comes on you, everything you look at is sinful. And to disobey... That's what He told me, "If you'll get the people to believe you and then be sincere," when I say, "be quiet, don't move around," and you don't do it, that shows you don't believe. See? And that's reflects back to me. The Holy Spirit, says, "Leave them. Leave them alone."
But I cry to Him day and night, "Lord, don't do it yet. Let me try again," 'cause I realize what heaven is.
L-118 Did you ever read the little testimony of the Christian Business Men, the little translation of vision I had the other night? I want ever person in here to get one of those. If you ain't got enough money, take it anyhow. I'll pay for it.
You have read it? Isn't that beautiful? How could I ever let someone miss that place there.
You're nervous, complications, lots of things wrong with you. But there's one main thing you have on your heart is for somebody else; that's a younger person; it's a woman. It's your daughter. She's awfully nervous. And she's had an operation; that's the cause of it.
L-119 You're not from here. Originally you're from Arkansas. You believe God can tell me who you are? Would help you? Mrs. Martin, go home; Jesus Christ makes you well. Have faith; don't doubt. Believe on the Lord.
Now, it's weakening me, brother. Please, everybody, please, quiet. Set still, please, please, please. I ask, please, don't get up, please. Just... It leaves me (You see?), and then I have to come back again. See? Please, just be reverent. All right.
L-120 I suppose we're strangers to one another. Are we, sir? All right, sir, we're strangers. The Lord Jesus can reveal to me what your trouble is, will you believe me?
I hate to tell you this. You want me to tell you anyhow? You're shadowed, cancer. You're shadowed to death. You've had some habits you got to give up. That's right. Will you do it?
Let me show you something. I feel another spirit moving in, the devil. You're trying to get right with God. Frankly, you just been baptized to get straight. That's right.
That lady setting there with leukemia, you believe Jesus Christ make you well? If you have faith, He will do... You accept it? You believe He will heal and make you well? Have you got a prayer card? You don't? See, it's cancer too, sister. You don't have to have a prayer card. Raise up your hand to Christ, say... The lady setting there with the little red coat laying across her laps, that... Don't you all see that Light hanging over the woman?
L-121 I want to ask you something. You be honest with me. When I spoke cancer and death, something strange happened to you. Is that right? You had a funny feeling like, come over you? See? Is this right? If that's right, wave your hand so the people there will see. See? See, it's death too on the woman. It's leukemia, or that's what your doctor said. And he's right.
Now, you're both under the shadows of death. That dark streak coming from this one. What is it? It's that devil in here called cancer. Cancer is a Greek word, or a medical word, means "crab." But it's a devil; it's a killer, a tormentor. It's on this man, and in that woman. And see, he was calling for help to try to get this man to disbelieve it, and the Holy Spirit beat him to it, and throwed faith on the woman. She touched Something. See, that devil thought he could get by with it. Will you both believe on Jesus Christ and accept Him as your Healer, raise your hand. Then in the Name of Jesus Christ, I condemn that devil to leave you both and go. Go, and be well. Go, and be well.
L-122 If there is anybody here that's a skeptic, you ought to be ashamed of yourself. You're worse off then they were.
How do you do? Is there no usher there take up those prayer cards? The people are crossing with that--with their prayer cards in their hands. Now, if you'll just wait a moment or two longer. Honestly, we--we'll--we--we'll quit. I... See, when you are moving, get up and move around, it just throws the contact of the Spirit off. See? It's in the audience.
That man setting right there with arthritis, do you believe that God will make you well? All right, sir. You were praying, wasn't you, sir? Look how far he is from me. All right, believe with all your heart, and the arthritis will leave you.
L-123 The man setting right back here behind, two or three behind him there, got prostate trouble. Mister, you was praying, had something struck you. When I said arthritis to that man, something struck you. If that is right, raise up your hand; man kind of bald-headed, wearing glasses... That's exactly right. You believe me to be His prophet? Then I pronounce you healed in the Name of Jesus Christ.
The man right behind him got a lot of faith just then. Right. I don't know you, sir, but you're suffering with nervousness and complications. If that's right, raise up your hand. Receive your healing; Jesus Christ makes you well. Have faith; don't doubt.
Nervous, anemia, high blood pressure... That's right. Is that right, lady. Raise your hand. You accept your healing? All right, in the Name of Jesus Christ, you...
L-124 What'd you raise your hand back behind there for, the woman? You believe me to be God's prophet? You believe God can tell me what your trouble is, with all your heart you'll accept it? You have a lady's female trouble and eczema. If that's right, stand on your feet. Then go home and be healed in the Name of Jesus Christ.
Can't you see it's the Lord Jesus? I challenge any of you to believe that. Them people out there, no prayer cards or nothing else, just believing.
Do you believe me to be His prophet? If God will reveal to me the things in your heart... You see, it's just about got me, so I can't stay here much longer. Don't please. I'm... Look at me. As I said, like Peter and John passed through the gate called beautiful, said, "Look on us." [Acts 3:2-4]
L-125 You suffer with your eyes. You want prayed for. 'Course you say, you got on glasses. Not only that, but you suffer with your ears. You got trouble up in your nose, that you can't see. If that's right, raise your hands. That's true. They don't know what it is, but it's actually fungus, stops up your nose up there. That's right. And another thing, you got chest trouble. That's right.
You're not from this city. You're not from this country. You're from Michigan. That's right. Your name is Mrs. Swanson. Now, go home and be healed in the Name of Jesus Christ.
L-126 Do you believe, every one of you? Then lay your hands over on one another. I just can't stay no longer...?... Put your hands on one another ever where you are...?... Put your hands on each other. In the Presence of the Holy Ghost... I just can't stand longer, 'cause all of you has done turned white out there. It's just--it's just a Light over every one of you. If I have found grace in your sight, if you believe me, you in the prayer line here, wherever you are... If you believe with all your heart, and I've found grace in your sight... The Holy Spirit is so dense in here tonight till there's like a Light all over. I can't see people out there no more. It seems to be so anointed.
The only one thing can keep you from being healed, that's your unbelief. You in the wheelchairs, wherever you are, the Holy Spirit's just got the whole place illuminated with His power. Why don't you accept it, raise up.
Satan, I rebuke you, devil, in the Name of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Come out of this audience and leave them.
