57-0104 - Arnold Memorial School, Cleveland, TN (Paragraphs: 62 - 75)
L-63 Every one be real reverent; set real quiet now, and be real reverent. Now, keep your minds on the Lord Jesus and be in prayer. "Abide with Me." God knows that's what we all want. Do you realize, Christians, where I'm standing tonight? If someone could take my place here, you'd be welcome. But here I am before, I guess, a thousand people. I don't know: little group. But I stood this way before five hundred thousand when a blind man received his sight and tens of thousands come to Christ at once. See?
Now, this Bible, I have said is the Word of God. Now, It's either the truth or It isn't the truth. I'm basing tonight on Hebrews 13:8, said Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. The things that He did then, He does now, or the Bible's wrong, and I'm found a false witness. If He does do the same thing, then you disbelieve it, well, that's between you and God. I trust that you won't, but will believe and will receive the same benefit, for you're a very lovely people. [Hebrews 13:8]
L-64 Now, Father, into Thy hands we commit ourselves, our spirit. And I realize, Father, no matter how much that You would anoint Your servant, I could not do nothing except the audience also would believe. For You went to Your own country, Your own city, and he said, "Many mighty works He could not do because of their unbelief." So I pray that You'll make all unbelief vanish tonight and prove Yourself alive, the same Lord Jesus. May they not look at the illiterate person who speaks, but may they look to the Word of God which has called it and claimed it, and God has promised that He would do it. And may they be said, maybe like when Peter passed through the gate called Beautiful, they taken heed and knowed that he was ignorant and unlearned, but taken notice that He had been with Jesus. And may that be tonight.
And may You do something tonight now, Lord. The same things that we have spoke of, may You come and perform that same thing, that the people might know that You have risen from the dead and You're here alive, and love us and want us to believe You. And now, I yield myself to Thee, with the audience; in Jesus' Name we pray that You'll get glory from the service. Amen. [Acts 4:13]
L-65 Now, just keep your children next to you. There's only one thing that usually causes trouble, that's epilepsy. That's the reason we keep the platform empty as possible. Now, be real reverent. Now, we're not... We're--we're in church: in church. Now, be real reverent.
I just want you to come this way, sir, just a moment. Now, here tonight there's, I guess, hundreds of sick people here. And I clearly made it that no man can heal you. You're healing is already done; you have to accept it. But God, through gifts of preaching the Word... Maybe some minister come, explained the Word to you till wouldn't need anything else: it settles it. But through another gift of seeing...
Now, here is a man standing here. I suppose we're strangers to each other? We don't know each other. Now, this man and I are different ages, born miles apart and years apart, and never met before till right now. This is our first time meeting. I never seen him. He never seen me, as far as I know. He--He's here for some cause. I don't know. I couldn't tell you. But he looks healthy enough. Now, if I'd say, "There's a woman setting there in a wheelchair." Anybody can see that. See? I'd say, "There's a lady setting here with glasses on her, she got bad eyes." Anybody can see that, but what's the matter with this man here? There's the miracle. See?
L-66 Now, if Jesus has raised from the dead, He knows this man. He's knowed him ever since he was born. He knowed him before he was born, yea, before the world begin. He knowed that we'd stand here tonight before the world begin. He knowed it would be a testimony to you if He so made... [] way before the world begin.
Now, the man could be an infidel, he could be a atheist; he could be a critic. If he is, watch what happens. See? Now, if he's a Christian, watch what happens. See? I don't know him. God does. Now, you see the position it puts me in? First time I've ever seeing him and meeting him... [Jeremiah 1:5]
L-67 Now, if Jesus was raised from the dead, and He was standing here tonight with this suit on that He gave me down in Africa, and... Now, if this man was sick and say, "Lord, I want You to heal me," what would Jesus say? "I've already done that, child of Mine, don't you know I..." He don't do things twice. He can only do it once. He can't make an atonement for healing, then turn around and make another atonement for it. He's done made the atonement and that settles it. But He would know him, would be something like He did when He was here on earth before He was crucified, to let him know that He was Jesus. Is that right?
Now, if He'll do the same thing by this man as He did in the Bible time, all you promise that you'll believe on the Lord Jesus, every one of you? Does anybody know the man out there in the audience, people that? Raise your hands if you know him. That's all right. There's several here that knows him. Now, you know...
Now, may the Lord help me is my prayer. I don't say He will. But if He does, He'll receive glory and praise.
L-68 Now, sir, in the Bible there was a woman who came to the Lord Jesus at the well. And He talked to her a few moments till He found where her trouble was, and then He--He told her where her trouble was, and she believed it.
And there was a man came to Him. And He told him where he was, even told him what his name was, and told him all about hisself. And he believed on the Lord because He told him, He had said before he come He--He saw him under a tree praying. See? And that was really wonderful of course. And this fellow knew that only God could do that. That would be God again, wouldn't it?
Now, you know, sir, that I'm just your brother, for I perceive that you are a Christian. You got a Christian spirit. So you're a Christian, and you're conscious that something's going on. It's--it's the Presence of the Holy Spirit. See? That's right. That's all. Well, as the man stands there, if the audience can still hear me, the man moves from me. And he's shadowed for death. The man has a cancer. That is true? Is that true? Raise your hand if that's true.
Now, ever what He told you, that wasn't me; that was Him. Now, see, just talking to him, more you'd to talk to, more would be told. See? But then it just makes me real weak. See? Just gets weaker and weaker all the time, 'cause it--it--it's him touching. See?
L-69 Now, let's just talk a little bit, being that you're the first man. Just a moment to talk with now. Now, ever what He told you, that was true. You know, you... If He can tell you what was... Now, I just say, "You have the... You're going to be healed." Well then, you have the right to doubt that, because you don't know what the future holds. But if He knows what has been, you know whether that's true or not. And that's right.
Yes, I see the man again; he's got a shadow from him, and it's a--it's cancer. Then he--he's got some kind of trouble at his home. It's a woman. It's his wife, and she's had a stroke, and she can't talk. She's here tonight. Right. They call you, "Ben," don't they? Your last name's Oliver, isn't it? Do you believe that it's the Lord Jesus? Something's here as you know. You believe the...?
Our heavenly Father, Thou hast said, "These signs shall follow them that believe: If they lay their hands on the sick, they shall recover." This I ask in Jesus' Name. Amen. Yes. God bless you, sir. Go now. As you have believed, be it unto you as you have believed. Now, God bless you, my brother. That's right. You just...?... See? [Mark 16:17-18]
L-70 Now, every one have faith and believe. Do you believe with all your heart? Now, be real reverent now. You're in the Presence of the Holy Spirit. See? Now, real reverent then. You have to know that this comes from somewhere supernatural. Now, it's up to you what you allow it to be. Whatever you think of it, that's what you'll draw from (See?), your opinion, your approach to it.
Now, here's a man. I suppose we're...?... first. I don't know you. But I don't know you. No. All right, sir. Then you're here for some cause, some reason. I don't know that, sir. You're aware that I don't know it; I have no way of knowing that, only except it would be revealed to me or showed to me. Now, if Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever, and I be His servant... And I perceive that--that you have a Christian spirit too, so you're a man and I'm a man. And here we are. You are coming here for some reason, to the One that loved you. And I'm just yielding myself to see what He'll say to me to tell you. He's wonderful. You're conscious that something's going on. Just then that Light... We'll have the picture of it here. It's copyrighted in Washington, DC It's copyrighted. And that struck you just then, 'cause between you and I there's a Light now. That's true.
Saints, Jesus Christ is in form of Light. The audience would know that. When Paul saw Him on the road down to Damascus, He was a great Light. And that was the same Light that led the children of Israel through the wilderness: the Pillar of Fire. [Hebrews 13:8], [Acts 22:6]
L-71 And you are--you are not only a Christian; you are a minister. I see you at the pulpit. And I see you in a room, begging or agonizing about something. What you're here for, me, you want spiritual help and you want me to pray for you, that you'll receive spiritual help. And you're not from this city. You come from another city, and that city would be kinda north. And it's a big place where they got a super highways run. It's got a great big place like... It's Washington, DC That's where you're from. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD. And I see appear by you an elderly looking person. It's a woman. And I see her younger, and she's holding you. That's your mother, and you want me to pray for her, 'cause she has heart trouble. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD. You believe, sir? Thank you.
Our kind heavenly Father, the Lord Jesus raised from the dead. And now I pray and bless this man, in the Name of Christ, the Son of God, that he will receive that which he has believed for; in Jesus' Name. Amen. God bless you, my dear friend. May He add His blessings. Have faith in God now. [Mark 11:22]
L-72 You, out there in the audience, just believe with all your heart. Now, howdy do? We are strangers to each other, are we, sir? We never seen before, I suppose. You saw me from the audience but never knowed me. This is our first time of meeting.
Now, just real reverent. We are each one a spirit. It's our own... You can't crowd it into one night, what demons are, how they act, and they're spirits too. We'll get to it a little later. Be real reverent. Something happened here [] here. Now, just keep praying. You... It's out in the audience. It's not going to be up here in the prayer line, just keep praying. Something's taking place. I was only conscious of it as I felt it by the Holy Spirit. Someone touched Him just then: the High Priest, not me. It only answered this way.
L-73 Now, the man, you know I don't you, and know nothing about you, but Jesus Christ knows you. He's knowed you since you were born. But I see you're suffering with a tremendous nervous condition, one of those types that hurt you, makes you think deep, and always planning things you never get to them. That's right. It never happens that way: always, as we say, crossing bridges before you get to them; taking other people's worries on yourself. And besides that, you have a--a--a growth on your foot, your growth's on your foot.
That lady, setting right there on the--second from the end then, right here with the little white coat on, she has a growth too on her back. That's right, isn't it, lady? If it is, raise up your hand then. You also have bladder trouble, don't you? If that's right, raise up your hand. See, you've touched Him with the feeling. You're both healed now. You're--you're both healed. Have faith in God. Don't doubt it. Just believe with all your heart.
Those... What happens, those spirits call one to another for help. See? You can un... I can't explain it. There's no way of doing it, so you just believe it. Do you believe? With all your heart? Jesus said, "Thou canst--if thou canst believe... If thou canst believe..." [Mark 11:22], [Mark 9:23]
L-74 Howdy do, lady? You suffer with a nervous trouble too. That's right. You also have a growth. You have neck trouble: It's a tumor. That's right. Strange, how the Holy Spirit would say the same thing he did. Must be operated, or God has to heal one. I couldn't take it out, but God can. Do you believe that? You believe? All right. I want you to believe with all your heart. If thou canst believe... Got bladder trouble too, don't you? You believe that God will heal you? With all your heart? Uh-huh. Just happened to see that. Just have faith in God.
Little lady, you setting next to her, that raised up a few minutes ago, if thou canst believe... Have faith in God. You believe that God make you well? Our heavenly Father, I ask in Jesus' Name, for her healing. And may it go from her; in Jesus' Name I pray. Amen. Now, rejoice and be happy. Believe with all your heart, to this man here. Have faith in God. The Bible said, "Have faith in God." [Mark 11:22]
L-75 It's a female trouble and a tumor, isn't it, lady, with the little red coat on? That's right, isn't it? He thought he'd get by with that, but he didn't. Uh-huh. That's right. Hold your hand up if that's true there? See? Your faith touched Him. Amen. The lady next to you has a chest trouble there, doesn't it? Lady setting there with a handkerchief to your mouth, has chest trouble. You're real nervous too, aren't you? That's right, raise up your hand, the lady there. God bless you. Have faith in God. Believe. The Bible said, "Believe."
Howdy do, sir? The Lord Jesus is wonderful. Are you believing? Now, don't move around. Just be real reverent. Just a moment... [Mark 11:22]

57-0106 - Arnold Memorial School, Cleveland, TN (Paragraphs: 69 - 82)
L-70 Now, let us be real reverent. Sonny, if you will, could you play, "Only Believe," just a moment? There's something about the song. I've heard it sang now in pretty near every language under heaven, where thousands of heathens that war at one another get together and sing, "Only Believe." "Only believe," it was wrote by my friend, Paul Rader, who's gone on to heaven. In his gallant death in California, when the little Moody Bible Institute sent a quartet down there to sing, and they were singing, "Nearer My God to Thee." How many ever knew Paul Rader, heard of him? Sure. He had a sense of humor.
By the way, his friend too, F. F. Bosworth may follow me in this meeting or Tommy Osborn. If they do come in here, receive them in Christ. They are real, real brothers. The pastor has been saying, asking maybe he could get a hold of them to come continue on.
L-71 Now, listen. When Paul was dying, he said, "Who is dying? You or I? Raise them shades and sing me some snappy Gospel songs." So when he went to singing, Paul said, "Where's Luke?" Luke and Paul stuck together about like Billy Paul, my boy, and I. They were together. They were brothers. They called Luke. Luke was in the next room. He didn't want to see his brother die. So he said, "Where you at, Luke?" Luke come over, and he took hold of Paul's hand. Paul said, "Luke, we've come a long ways together, brother. But think of it: In five minutes from now I'll be standing in the Presence of Jesus Christ, clothed in His righteousness," and squeezed Luke's hand and went to meet God.
Let me go like that. That's right. Let me go like that when my weary days are over.
Paul wrote the song when I was having a big meeting in Ft. Wayne, where he wrote the song in that room. I couldn't keep from crying when I heard it come in. I could just see Paul. I'll see him again someday.
L-72 All right. Only believe, all things are possible. Let's watch coming from heaven now; down through the corridors comes the Lord Jesus. I've spoke for Him. I closed the Book. It's His time to speak. If He vindicates what I say is the Truth, you disbelieve it, you're a sinner. Remember, "Go ye and," what no more? What is sin? Unbelief. Go ye and disbelieve no more or worse things will come upon you. So don't disbelieve. Only believe.
For the sake of time, let's hurry and get the people coming. The lady standing here is a stranger to me as far as I know. We're strangers to each other. I do not know her, but I'm glad it's a woman to be first tonight. I'd like to give a little Bible picture. How many... [] institution tonight. You're not playing church, friends. It's church. God's mercy. We're at the end of the road. This is the signs of the last day. Now, may the God of heaven help us tonight so that you'll be without an excuse at the day of judgment. And God knows that this is only done, if He will. I have no way of saying He will, but if He will re-act His Life again tonight right here, so you'll be without an excuse, and you who love Him will rejoice and be happy because you're religion is right and your Christ has raised from the dead. The Lord bless.
L-73 Now, lady, I... Ever who's at the microphone, if you probably step it up, the engineer, just a little, 'cause if the anointing which is now striking me, if it... I don't know how long--how loud I talk, because it's another world. Now, if I said, "Woman, you're sick." That might be right. That would be guessing. "And you're going to be healed." You'd just have to guess at that. That's something that I tell you will be, which you have no way of knowing. But what if He tells me something that's already happened? Then you know whether that's truth or not.
Now, when the Lord Jesus came to a person... Do you believe, lady, that He has raised from the dead? And you believe that He is just the same in every attitude and everything that He always has been? And if He tonight... You're standing there with something that you've come here for. And you know, I don't know. But if He will reveal to me what you've come for, just the same as He told that woman where her trouble was. If He will tell me where you're trouble is, you'll know whether it's the truth or not. And if He will do that, would you accept and believe then, and knowing that your brother has no way of knowing those things? Well, you--you know it would have to be a supernatural. So it'll be your attitude, what you judge it to be.
L-74 You're aware that something is going on, 'cause between me and the lady is a Light moving back and forth. It's because I keep talking, the reason It doesn't settle on her. But I've never seen the woman. I don't know her. I...
Something happened. I don't know just what it was. I don't think it was the Angel, because it was a light. But if somebody snapped a camera, don't do it. See, this Angel is a light. I'm trying to watch it. And it jerked me from the vision then. You see? Don't do that. I know you didn't mean to, but (See?), you can take pictures before this, but not now. See? The... It's gone from the woman. See? I was talking with her and it... She was moving from me, and then a light flashed, and I--I--I thought the Angel went to the audience. And then I looked back, and it--it was a bulb. So, please now. Be real reverent.
L-75 Let us talk again. What am I doing? I'm trying to do the same thing that Jesus did when He talked to the woman. He said, "Woman, bring Me a drink." Wonder why He said that? Why did He send His disciples away? Father sent Him up there. And He sent His disciples away. Why did He contact the woman's spirit? He said, "Woman, bring Me a drink."
She said, "It's not customary for you Jews to ask Samaritans such. We have no dealings." There's a segregation, just like the colored and white today.
But what did He say? "If You knew Who you were talking to, you'd ask Me for a drink."
"Why," she said, "the well's deep, and You have nothing to draw with. And our father Jacob drug--dug it and drunk from it and you say in this mountain in Jerusalem..." The conversation went on. What was He doing?
There was a man filled with the Spirit of God. There was a woman with a need of God. He was contacting her spirit to know her need, and that's exactly what I'm doing now. [John 4:7-11]
L-76 Now, if you'll believe, it'll... You, yourself are the one that controls it, not me. I'm just trying to get you to center your thought on Christ. And if God will do this, all of you will believe, will you do it, with all your heart? May He grant it.
I can see the woman coming from somewhere else. She's not from this city. She's from out-of-town. And she's talking about something. And that's about her... It's a growth, and that growth is in the breast. That's the truth. And you're afraid it's a cancer. You prayed that God would let you get in this line today. And by the way, you--your husband has something to do with... He's a preacher. That's right. And your name is something like B-r-e-n-n-e-n, Brennen or something like that. That's right. Now, do you believe? Do you accept Him with all your heart? Now, come here.
Our heavenly Father, in the Name of Thy Son the Lord Jesus, knowing that this woman is shadowed for death, I pray that You'll grant tonight that this old evil thing that's bothering her... Oh thou, devil, you are defeated. You're exposed. Come out of the woman. I adjure, thee, by the living God that you depart from her. Amen.
God bless you, sister. Go, and don't doubt. It's free from you, now. Don't doubt.
L-77 How do you do. Well, you and I are strangers too, I suppose, to each other. I don't know you. But Someone here Who knows you, and He's the Lord Jesus. I am His servant. I perceive that you are a Christian. You're a Christian, because your spirit seems to be... The Holy Spirit here seems to be walking as my brother. You're a Christian. And you come to me for something, for help. And if I could do it, I would. But I'm just your brother, a gift of God to you, and I just yield myself, and the Holy Spirit might be able to help you, if you'll believe.
I see you're really extremely nervous. You're upset about something. I tell you; it's a spiritual condition. You want to lift from God. That's right, brother. And there's something else that you might know. You got trouble with your feet, and that's athletic feet. That's right. And you're a preacher. That's right. That's "THUS SAITH THE SPIRIT." Now, do you believe? Come here.
Dear God and Father, I bless this man in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and ask that you will make him well. In Jesus Christ's Name. Amen. God bless you, brother.
L-78 Little lady, setting there with your hand up like this in the second row, right back there, you're praying for a spiritual uplift too. Aren't... Isn't that right? It's a spiritual condition. You're aware that something is going on there, aren't you? Looks like, audience, you could see that. Can't you see that light come an emerald color hanging right over that lady? There it is. She's praying that God will help her and give her spiritual help, for she's seeking such from God. That's true. Just believe. Raise up your hand, lady, to God, way up high. Will you take that same hand and lay it on the lady next to you who has arthritis and wants to be healed?
It's over, sister. That you might know the lady setting next to her, do you believe, lady? You're praying for a little boy. Yes. Raise up just a minute. There's a boy setting here looking this way praying too, and his spirit is coming in. The lady with the little white hat on, yes. I want to see you. Stand up. Look this way just a moment. Do you believe me to be His prophet? If God will reveal to me what you are praying for, will you accept it? Well, his stomach trouble will end then. Do you believe with all your heart that Jesus can make it well and will do the things that you have asked for? If you believe it with all your heart, raise up your hand? With all your heart, you believe it. Now, bow your head.
Our heavenly Father, I pray that in Christ's Name, that You will give to her the deep desire of her heart as we condemn the devil in Jesus Christ's Name. Amen. The Lord bless you. Now, have faith.
L-79 You lady, do you believe with all your heart? I'm a stranger to you. It's just from everywhere. Now, be real reverent and everyone in prayer just a moment. You're all human. You all got spirits, and everyone's just pressing now. See? And visions are just coming from every way. It's hard to hold them.
I want to talk to you, lady, just a moment. Look at me. Look on me. I mean that like the Scripture. Peter and John passed through the gate called Beautiful, said, "Look on us." That don't mean to look to them for... just to give attention... You got trouble with your legs. That's right. Now, being that I've got your spirit under the control of the Holy Spirit, there's something else on your heart. That didn't satisfy you. I see some kind of, like a, it's a water, great big waves a rolling. It's a--it's the sea. You are interested something... It's somebody that's overseas, and that is a son. And that son is in Italy, and that son has a stomach trouble and is supposed to be operated on right away, and the boy is a sinner, and you want prayer for his soul, THUS SAITH THE LORD. You believe?
Dear heavenly Father, in the Name of Thy beloved Child, the Lord Jesus, laying hands upon the woman and ask that she receive that what she asked for in Christ's Name. Amen. Go, don't doubt Him, lady. It's Light around you now where it was dark. You can receive what you've asked for. Do you believe? Have faith in God. Don't doubt. Amen. [Acts 3:4], [Mark 11:22]
L-80 He said, "I can if ye believe." All right, young fellow. Do you believe God? Do you believe Jesus Christ is God's Son, He raised Him from the dead? Do you believe the work that you now see going on, you believe it comes from God? You believe me to be His servant? You believe the Word that I preached is the Truth? Then I can help you, if you believe that. For He promised it.
You're suffering with a nervous condition. You've had it since a little boy, since you was a kiddie in school. You got real scared one time somewhere coming from... It was a dog or something that crossed your path. That's been many years ago. That's right. Reading your book in school, you held them close to you because you are near sighted. You read too close to you. You should push it way. It's been pushed back by your teacher. That's years ago. Also, you've got someone here in the building that you are interested in. It is your mother. You believe that God will tell me what is wrong with her? Would you accept it? She's got asthma trouble. It's right. Do you believe me to be His prophet, now? You're praying for your wife also, aren't you, son? You believe God will tell me what's wrong with her? She's got something wrong with her fingers. They get yellow and swell up on the ends, and the fingernails drop off. That's right, isn't it? Now, do you believe? Then go and receive as you have believed; so be it unto you in Christ's Name.
L-81 How do you do? You believe with all your heart? I don't know you, lady. You're aware of that, but God knows you. He knows all about you. You're standing for someone else. That's your daughter. She has a horrible female trouble. I see her going into a hospital and coming back out, but I hear a doctor say she has to operated again. That's right. You don't believe that. You accept Christ now for the Healer? Come, as you stand for her.
O Christ of God, I condemn the devil and ask that this woman receive her blessing she's asked for in Christ's Name. Amen.
Have faith in God. [Mark 11:22]
L-82 How do you do, sir. I don't know you, but there's Somebody does know you. That's God.
Up in the balcony in the middle row, setting back there, sir, with that stomach trouble, you believe God will heal you, make you well? The man with the white shirt on, kind of a blue looking tie, gray headed, setting there with a stomach trouble, praying, got acidity of the stomach, ulcerated, raise your hand up, sir. There you are. You're healed. Jesus Christ makes you well. Amen.
Do you believe? Have faith in God.
Been working hard, haven't you. Got a poisoning from it, a cement poisoning, Mr. G. H. Whitner. Return home; it's going to leave you, sir. Your faith has made you whole. Amen. God bless you, brother.
You believe, lady? You touched Him, little lady, with the red dress on. You were praying, wasn't you, sister? Yes. Now, there He is. He's standing by you. You're suffering with a lady's trouble, a female trouble. That's right. Say, by the way, you're a minister, a woman preacher. You're not from this city. You're from Alabama. By the way, you got a sister you're praying for. She's not here, but she's there, and she's got epilepsy. I see her fall with the spirit. That's the truth. Have faith, lady, and believe God, and you can have that you ask for. Amen. [Mark 11:22]

57-0114 - People's Tabernacle, Sturgis, MI (Paragraphs: 97 - 123)
L-98 Now, I'm going to ask you with all my heart and all that is within me, if you'll be reverent just for a few moments. And now, do you realize in this position where I... How many Christians is here? Do you realize what I am doing? Do you want to take my place? See? I am try... I'm...
It's either going to be in a few minutes I've been proved a liar or I have to be proved the truth. And there's only one can do it, and that's God. That's right. That's God to do it. And I humbly ask with all my heart, that He will prove it, that I have told you the truth, that He is the Son of God, and your Christian religion is not some mythical, hopeless make-up, but it's a reality in a risen Lord Jesus. Do you understand? It's just for that now?
L-99 And now, "What is this, Brother Branham, that you do?" How many's ever seen the picture of the Light, the Angel of the Lord? See, many of you. I believe it's here in a book. And the FBI and all of them has looked it over. It's down here in Washington, DC, copyrighted as the only supernatural Being that was ever photographed. And there... Oh, that's--that's a poor picture of it. That's not very good.
I don't--I don't sell books. I don't have radio. That's... Gordon Lindsay prints that book, and I buy them from him for forty cents less, and pack them, get somebody to sell them. And I lose on them every time. Have to give a lot of them away. And if anybody ain't got the money to pay for one, I come give them anyhow. So that's it. See? Freely as you receive, freely give. So I...
L-100 It's just for the little message that Brother Gor... The other book is a much better. The Prophet Sent... No. I forget... Oh, South Africa... Yes. Stadsklev, Billy Graham's friend and partner from the school, I think he went to school with Billy Graham. That's the way it was. Julius Stadsklev, captain, chaplain in the army, wrote that book, a fundamentalist. And so now, we desire your sincere prayer.
And I want to ask you tonight that you'll pledge to God your faith. Now, remember. The woman that touched His garment. Jesus knowed nothing about it. He did not know what taken place. The Father didn't show Him any vision at all. The woman drawed through Christ her desire. And it's your faith that does it. What do I do? It's a gift.
L-101 When I was just a little boy, I don't know how old, I was just still crawling. I must've been not over two years old. I remember the first thing I can remember is a vision (See?), when I was just a little boy. And it told me that I was going to live in Indiana near a place called New Albany.
I've lived there for thirty-seven years. I beg your pardon: Forty, I've been there forty-five, forty-four years. I didn't mean to make myself thirty-seven when I'm forty-seven. I--I was thinking I come there when I was three years old. I didn't mean to make that mistake. God knows I didn't. But...
Now, what do you do? It's yielding yourself to the Holy Spirit, and He anoints. Just like any minister comes to the platform, he's got his subject on his mind, he yields hisself to the Holy Spirit, and the Spirit preaches through him. That's a pastor, or teacher, or evangelist. An apostle operates in the same way. And a...
L-102 I don't claim to be a prophet. I'm just His servant. I couldn't be a... I ain't no prophet. But I'm just His servant. Gift of knowledge or whatever you wish to call it, it's God's gift. By grace He gave it, 'cause I had no merits to come from.
Now, how many here that wants to be prayed for that's not going to be in the prayer line, let's see your hands, wants God to heal you? I don't care what, where you're at. Without your cards and things, raise your hands. All right. Just wanted to see.
Now, you look this a way. And with all your heart, if the Holy Spirit should anoint, and you say, "Lord Jesus, I solemnly believe with all my heart that it's the truth." And then, you find out if God will perform and do that which He's asked for. Okay. Everything okay, Billy?
L-103 I hate to keep you standing. Is this--this the patient, brother? Is this the person? Come here. Now, just right here will be all right, sir. Now, here is a case tonight just similar to a case where two men met one time as a Bible scene. I've said this is the Urim Thummim. The text is that Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
Here's two men. We have met each other. I suppose we're strangers to each other. Are we, brother? We're strangers. But we are--never met before in our life, probably born years apart and miles apart. But when Philip went and got Nathanael and brought him to the Lord Jesus, He recognized something about him. [Exodus 28:30]
L-104 Now, you're here for some purpose. You may be... If I don't know you, and there's nobody in the building I know except Leo and Gene, that was down here taking recording, and this brother right here, the pastor, and so far, and the brother standing by, I can't think of his name, standing in the door, Millman, Brother Millman. As far as I know, that's the only person that I can recognize in the building.
How many knows in here that I don't know you, raise your hands, that you know that I don't know you, or know nothing of you? All right. In the prayer line, same way. All right. See? Here's a man here's already testified that... Now, if the Lord Jesus... If the man... If he is a doubter, if he is come up here just and an unbeliever come up for some ill something, watch what happens.
If he's here as a Christian, or as a sinner, if he's here for financial troubles, he wants the Lord to help him to do something in finances, maybe to take care of his family or something, pay for his home that they're fixing to take. Or maybe he's here for domestic trouble with his family, something wrong. He may be here sick and needy. I--I don't know one thing about the man. He's a total stranger.
L-105 Now, if Jesus has--has raised from the dead, and He was standing here with this suit on that He gave me, and what if the men was sick? Now, be careful how you answer me. If he was standing before Jesus, if he'd say, "Jesus, would you heal me?" what you think Jesus would say?
Jesus would say, "I have already done it."
How many knows that salvation is a finished work? Every person that was ever saved was saved when Jesus died, take away the sin of the world. Healing is a finished work. It's your personal faith. "Oh, Brother Branham, I beg your pardon. I was only saved two weeks ago." Huh-uh. You was saved nineteen hundred years ago, better. You were--just accepted it two weeks ago. That's all. See? That's the way. See, it's a finished work.
L-106 Now, the only way that He could do, to be a High Priest touched with the feeling of our infirmity, is you to touch Him, Him to turn and do the same thing that He did to the woman. And if the Lord Jesus will say to this man... Let him be the judge. If I'd say, "Here. You sick, sir?"
He'd say, "Yes."
"Well, I'm going to lay my hands on you. Praise God, you're going to get well."
I don't know whether he could believe that or not. I don't know whether you could accept it or not. But now, what if the Holy Spirit goes back like it did in the days of the Lord Jesus and tell him what he's already done. He's the witness of that. [Hebrews 4:15]
L-107 Now, the Jews might've turned around saying, "That was a trick made up. That's all there was to it. I tell you; that man's got a telepathy or something. That's all. When He told Philip... No, He... Nathanael had, he was under that tree or something he done over there. That's just a... He--He's with the party. That's all. There's some trick to it." As a devil always tries to--to act like that...
But listen, the men who the miracle was done on, he knowed better. He knowed it. He said, "I recognize it to be the Son of God." And his name is immortal today, Nathanael, far as I know, in glory and will be with Jesus forever. Those criticizers, God knows where they are. I don't. But I know as long as there's a Bible, there'll be a Nathanael to be read about.
L-108 Now, sir, we stand at the same spot. And you and I as men, and got to stand at the feet of the Lord Jesus someday to give an account for our life... We're standing here. We've never met before. But I do recognize you as a Christian, because as your spirit... I'm not reading your mind. But as your spirit's moving in, it seems to be welcome. Now, you're a part of the body of Christ. I'm part of the body of Christ.
You're here of a need. And you come to ask the Lord Jesus for something. Now, if He can use me to do something to make you believe... If I was a preacher, which I'm not much of a theologian, but if by the preaching of the Word... "Faith cometh by hearing, hearing of the Word." Well then, He gives some men a way that they can explain the Scriptures. I didn't have the education to do it. But He gave me another way for you, that you might know He's present, His resurrection. [Romans 10:17], [Hebrews 13:8]
L-109 And now, if Jesus has raised from the dead and standing here the same yesterday, today, and forever, He'd do the same thing to this man, as He would when He was here before the resurrection. Is that right? Same thing. If He will, will you believe it? Let the man be the judge. Now, be real reverent.
And now, in the Name of Jesus Christ, God's Son, may every person be reverent as we yield ourselves to the Spirit of God.
Now, sir, just to speak with you a moment. And may the Lord Jesus help us. Now, the man is... He's here for a sick call. He's here to ask God for healing, and the man is asking for the healing of a trouble with his kidneys, and it's also in his bowels, his kidneys and his bowels. That is true. If that's right raise your hand? Now, to heal you, I couldn't, sir. But your life you couldn't hide now. [Hebrews 13:8]
L-110 Are you believing? Now, see, more you would talk to him... Visions, you see, it just kills you. How many knows that visions takes... Why, Daniel saw one vision, it taken, why he was troubled in his head for many days. See? It's something that goes out of you, life like.
Now, I'm going to talk to him just a little bit. Maybe the Lord would say something else to the man. I--I don't know. Let's just ask Him for your sake. If we don't get to another one, let's just ask Him a minute, see if He would.
Now, whatever it was, sir, the only way I'll ever know what was told you, will be through that tape recording there. Whatever He said was truth. You heard Something say something, didn't you? That wasn't me, 'cause I don't know you. But ever what it was is true (Is that right?), exactly the truth.
Now, I want you just to look this a way. Believe with... As Peter and John said, "Look on--look on us." See? In other words, just pay attention to what I'm saying. Elijah said, "If it wasn't I respected the presence of Jehoshaphat, I wouldn't even look at you." See? But said, "Bring me a minstrel." The minstrel played, and the Spirit come on the prophet. He saw a vision. That's what we're doing right now. [Acts 3:4], [II Kings 3:15]
L-111 Now, if the audience can still hear me, the man, that Light that you see in the picture is right around the man, and he's moving away from me again. Yes, he's suffering with something from an examination of the--it's in the bowels. It's a bowel trouble. And I see the man has had some trouble, like an operation. That's right. And I see him coming out, and there's from this has caused adhesions is in there also.
Now, you know standing in my presence wouldn't make you feel like that, would you? If you could see... If you were in... If there's somebody here wants scientif... In the dimension that I was just standing (See?), it's another world. You'd realize what makes a man act like that. His emotions... Before there can be an emotion, there has to be something to cause an emotion. That Light was circling around the man. See? I will pray for you, brother, whatever was wrong.
L-112 Our kind heavenly Father, this man standing here, there's something wrong with him that Thou knowest. And Your heart is to heal him or to give him whatever he asked for. And the Bible told us that the last word You said, the last commission You gave Your Church was to go into all the world, preach the Gospel. You said, "They shall lay their hands on the sick; they shall recover." And this I do in obedience to God's commandments, in the Name of His Son, Jesus Christ, and ask that our brother receive that what he asked for. Amen.
God bless you, brother. Now, don't doubt nothing. See, go ye and sin no more or worse things will come. What is sin? Unbelief. There's only one... Drinking, smoking, gambling, committing adultery is not sin. That's the attributes of unbelief. You do that because you're not a believer. God bless you, sir. May the Lord Jesus be with you. [Mark 16:15-17], [John 5:14]
L-113 How do you do? Now, if... 'course you and I are strangers to each other. I do not know you. You perhaps don't know me. No more than just our--our meeting here. But God knows us both. Now, if... Here's a beautiful scene. Here... How many would like to have lived in the Bible time of Saint John 4, and seen a woman come to the well where, stood off on one side and watched it.
Would you like to live that time? By the grace of God, you're back at the place again. Not as I would be Him or she would be the lady that come to the Lord Jesus, which was a type of the Gentile church. I can't say. I know I'm not of Him. I am of Him. He's my Father, my--and my Saviour. But the woman I don't know. That's God.
But if God will perform the same thing, will it help your faith to believe in Him to do the same? Would it you, lady? You knowing that I being a stranger to you...
L-114 You're conscious that something's going on. It isn't I, your brother. But if you'll watch, you people, the emotion of the people that's standing here, if anyone can... Wish you could just see as It's going to me. There the Pillar of Fire that led the children of Israel, with sincere heart I believe.
Jesus when He was here on earth, we all know that that Pillar of Fire was Christ, the Angel of the covenant. And after He said, "I come from God and I go to God," and when Paul met Him on the road to Damascus, He was still that Pillar of Fire, that Light. And He's still the same today.
You're scared, lady. Your great thing is fear, because you're fearing an operation. That is true. And you've just had a hemorrhage, blood pouring. And you're scared of an operation, so that's the reason you won't go to a doctor this time, for you're afraid of an operation. [John 13:3]
L-115 You're not from this city, place called Edmore, Michigan, or something like that. Your name is Mrs. Albert Rea or Rea, R-E-A. That is right. Your life you couldn't hide at this time. I'm not your healer. I'm your brother. But that One, there's Something here now that knows you, and you know I don't. The same Jesus Who knows them who come, and just... I'm just the branch in the Vine. Are you conscious that's His Presence? Then He said, "These signs shall follow them that believe: If they lay their hands on the sick, they shall recover." You believe that, don't you? Let us pray. [Mark 16:17-18]
L-116 Our heavenly Father, we humbly come to Thee confessing our sin, believing on Thy only beloved Son, the Lord Jesus, and praying sincerely as Thou has blessed us with Thy Presence. And beyond a shadow of doubt we know that You've raised from the dead for You're doing the same things tonight just like You did when You were here before the crucifixion.
So skeptics, and enemies, and devils, and doubts might as well flee, because You have raised from the dead; and the hour has arrived just before the end time, the junction. Always happens just at the junction of time, Angels appear, prophets go forth, signs and wonders are done, just like in the antediluvian and the bringing out of the children of Israel, the coming of the Lord Jesus the first time, and now here it is at the second. Declare Thy works, O God, for Thou art righteous. And I bless this woman in Christ's Name with my hands on her and ask for whatever she is asking for be given. Amen.
Amen. God bless you, lady. Don't fear. Just have faith.
L-117 Would you come? Are you believing, with all your heart? You believe me to be His servant? The Angel of the Lord when He met me... Have you ever read the book? Did you remember the night in the room when He told me, "If you get the people to believe you..."
And I said, "Sir, I'm uneducated, they won't believe me."
He said, "As Moses was given two signs to a vindicate His ministry, so will you have two signs." And He said, "By this you'll know the very secret of their heart, and this they will believe."
Now, you have a right to doubt me to this time, but if God does perform and do what you're asking Him to do... You couldn't ask Him for nothing but faith to help you, whatever your desire and need is. Is that right? Now, it'll be your faith in God. [Exodus 4:1-9]
L-118 You're wanting prayer for your eyes for one thing. That's right. Then you're wanting prayer for a child, a crippled child. That's right. I thought I could see the child. You believe that you'll receive what you asked for, with all your heart? I'll pray for you. Then according to your faith, be it unto you.
Our kind heavenly Father, I ask that Your mercies be extended to this young woman. Thou knowest her heart, Lord. I lay my hands upon her in the Name of the Lord Jesus, and ask that she'll be granted the things that she's asked for, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
God bless you, lady. May you receive that what you've asked for is my prayer.
L-119 Just be real reverent now. The one thing that's always puzzled me has been this, is the emotions of peoples in the Presence of God, what it does to them. Something strikes you. Something happens.
Good evening, sir. We are two men, I suppose, to meet for our first time on earth. I do not know you, and perhaps you don't know me. That's right, isn't, sir. Yes, sir. I don't know you. But if you're sick, I couldn't heal you. If you are desiring something, if it's from God, I couldn't give it. See?
And if you are sick and needy, and I could help you and wouldn't do it, I--I'd be a bad person, wouldn't I? I--I'd be a hypocrite. If I could help you and wouldn't do it, I--I--I'd be a bad person. I believe a--a man of honor would do it, let alone a Christian (See?), would do it. But I--I can't. But just as I can speak what I see; that's all I know about is what I see.
L-120 You're not here for yourself. You're here for someone else. That's right. It's your daughter. She's an invalid. She doesn't... She isn't even here. She's, I believe, in Fort Wayne, Indiana. You have a little trouble, which is a little arthritis pain that strikes you once in a while. I see you rub on it. But it's nothing to hurt you.
You believe that Christ will grant you your desire tonight? You will believe it? Accept it now with all your heart? You believe God can go to where the patient is and perform that, just speak the word. You recognize Him as that type of Person tonight? I can only say what I see, sir. See? You believe now, will you? I'll pray with you, brother.
Our kind heavenly Father, I pray that You'll be merciful to this men, and will give unto him the desire of his heart, and may he go from here tonight and receive everything that he's asked for. For I ask for him, as his brother, and as a believer in You, and as a mortal that's got to stand in Your Presence someday to give an account for the life that we now live. I ask it in Christ's Name. Amen.
God bless you, sir. Go and receive what you've asked for. Now, set into believing.
L-121 How do you do, lady? We're strangers to each other, I suppose. You've--have seen me before. All right. Now, but you don't... I don't know you. No. But the Lord does know you. Now, it's turning black around the woman, real dark. The lady's got a tumor for one thing. Another thing, she has high blood pressure. She's just got a complication of everything. She's just all in a break. Just ready for a stroke, dark around you. I can't heal you, sister. I can't. But that One Who's now speaking, or has just spoke, can. Do you believe you're in His Presence, not your brother, but His Presence? Will you accept Him now as your Healer?
Our kind heavenly Father, as she holds this Word against her bosom, I so humbly and sincerely ask that You'll grant to the woman the desire of her heart and give her her healing in Jesus' Name I pray. Amen.
God bless you, sister. Go now, believing with all your heart.
L-122 Nervousness is an awful thing: hurts, causes all kinds of troubles and everything. But God can heal nervousness. You believe that? You're a deep thinker, son. You're one of these types of people that, crossing bridges before you get to them, taking other things. Never happens the way you think it out anyhow.
You've always wanted a place to set your foot, so you could start. You've longed to find that place. That's right. You're on that ground right now, son. You never want to come up to manhood a neurotic, and weary, and upside down. You're too nice a young man to do that.
The shadow now, hung over you a few moments ago, has left you. I don't know what's happened, but it's gone from you. Your faith has taken it away now. You're free from your trouble now. You know that something's happened, don't you? If that's right raise up your hand. Dark shadow that hung over the young man, his own faith did it even without prayer. God bless you, sir. Wonderful thing. And may God be with you and help you is my sincere prayer.
L-123 Same thing, nervous condition, lady. Would you believe that God can make you well, heal you? If I'll ask Him, you believe He will grant it? Let us pray.
Our heavenly Father, I pray that in Christ's Name, that You'll help her, and heal her, and make her well. In Jesus' Name I ask it. Amen.
All right. God bless you, lady. Go, believing now with all your heart, having faith.
Do you believe me to be God's servant? Don't think those thoughts. I'm not reading their mind. Here, lady, lay your hand on mine. If Almighty God will let me see in a vision out here, not looking at the woman so you won't think it's a telepathy... If God will let me know what the woman's trouble is or something that you... Just let her be the witness, will it sufficeth you? You believe it?
Now, lady, I'm talking to you, the one that has my hand. It's in the bloodstream, sugar. It's diabetes. If that's right, lady, raise up your hand. Take it off of mine and raise it up to God. Now, is it telepathy? Certainly not. It's a...

57-0115 - People's Tabernacle, Sturgis, MI (Paragraphs: 96 - 104)
L-97 But just as my soul begins to enter into the other world, this other realm. Then the Light begins to see it. I see It moving in the--as It's before me.
And I want you to pray and believe. As you people, no matter how strange you are, I know you not, but God does know you. And I want you to believe. Now, I have no way of knowing you. You know that. But God does know you. Now, just as you pray, I'm just watching to see what He will say. Just touch His garment like the woman did, and have faith, and believe.
L-98 Here He is, standing over a lady right here in front of me with a blue dress on, setting by the side of a woman with a green dress on. She's holding a light blue handkerchief in her hand. She's wearing glasses. She's praying to God. And this Light hangs by her, and as I see It break. And the woman moves away from me, and the lady is suffering with a sinus trouble. That's right, lady. Raise up your hand if that be so, so the audience can see. All right.
I see someone else that appears by you. It's an aged person. It's a woman, very sick. I see a long streak coming. I see a little girl in a... Oh, it's your mother that you're praying for in your prayer. And your mother is seriously ill. And her examination shows that she has diabetes and a cancer also. And you're afraid for your mother. And you're praying to God now to help your mother. That is true.
L-99 Now, if that is true, I want you to raise to your feet just a moment, if them words are true. Now, I want you to look this a way. I don't know you, do I? Never seen you. But ever what was said is true. Is that right? I wouldn't know it at this time, because it's on the record. Now, the best I can remember it was for sickness. And the tears that you wipe from your eyes on that handkerchief, you lay it on the one that you love.
And heavenly Father, I ask that You will bless and grant this woman's request. Her faith has touched Thee. In Jesus' Name, I pray. Amen.
[]... canst believe, all things are possible, all things. [Mark 9:23]
L-100 Now, since you dropped your head right back here, you're so sincerely watching and waiting, you. You kept watching me to see what my emotions would be. I'm a stranger to you, am I not? But you know that there's Something around you that's not a--not human. You're aware of that. I never seen you in my life. You're a stranger. Do you believe me to be His servant? Do you believe what I told you is the truth?
Now, see the way you get to a gift, it's your--it's your approach to it. One time when Jesus was talking to the people, a woman touched His garment, she felt virtue. But a Roman soldier put a rag on His head, and hit Him on the head, and said, "If you can see visions or prophesy, tell me who hit you." He didn't feel no virtue. It's your approach. [Mark 5:27], [Luke 22:64]
L-101 []... that pleurisy would leave you. That's right, isn't it? You got more faith than really you thought you had. Now, you're really know that something's anointing you now. When I said that, that just boosted your faith. Wasn't that right? Now, you look at me as God's prophet. You're not from this city. You're not from around here. You come from a big place. It's Detroit. That's right. Elizabeth is your name. Your last name's Marshall.
Do you believe on the Lord Jesus now, lady? See, as you contact His Spirit, how He moves right back down to you? That--that doesn't heal you. It only gives you a contact of Spirit. Now, get her to doubt. Some of the rest of you might, but not her. Neither did Nathanael doubt. Neither did the woman doubt, who the miracle was done on. Neither did the woman at the well doubt. [Mark 11:22]
L-102 It happened to be it moved over to you, sister, setting over there in the corner. You believe the Lord would heal that back trouble and let you get well, make you well? You're praying for that, wasn't you? Raise up your hand if that's true. All right. Receive what you've asked for. May God in heaven grant it to you, my sincere prayer.
[]...?... the door a man wearing... No, it isn't. It's a woman; it's right ahead of him. There stands a--that Angel of the Lord, that Light, around the woman. Don't fear, sister. The Lord Jesus will make you well, give you the desire of your heart there. Your name's Alice, isn't it?...?... Granger's your last name. Have faith in God. Don't doubt.
L-103 There's a young man setting; he's wearing a red coat or a red sweater. He's got his finger against his mouth. He's praying for someone which is dear to him. It's his father. He has cancer. Do you believe, young fellow, that God would heal your dad? You do? Are you aware that Jesus... Now, how did I know what the man was praying for? []
While the anointing is upon you all, do you want to be healed? Do you wish to be healed? Do you believe me to be His servant? I say to you, that Christ is in our midst. Ask these people; I never know them. Now, it's breaking over the
L-104 []... on the sick. I'm afraid to go any farther now, 'cause the Holy Spirit seems to say, "Pray for them." Keep your hand on your baby here, lady. All right. Be in prayer now, everybody. Oh, abide with me.
We're inviting You into our little bark, Lord, our little house, not much. We've mistreated it so, Lord, but You're God. And we pray that You'll bless this little audience just now. Thou has come down and proven Your Word, that You stay with the Word. The Word shall never fail. You said, "Heavens and earth will pass away, but My Word shall never fail." Nothing can stop Your Word from failing, or could ever make It fail, rather. There's one thing that's impossible: that's for God to fail, for the Bible said He cannot fail.
