57-0302 - Madison Square Garden, Phoenix, AZ,
L-52 I believe awhile ago I recognized Brother Stadsklev, Julius Stadsklev, a captain in the army. He was here somewhere. He's a good friend of mine, wrote the book, the African book. I seen him somewhere awhile ago. And that, as far as I know, h... Yeah, Brother Julius, I'm glad to see you and sister there tonight.
And outside of them, looking in the audience, as far as I know, I don't know anyone. And you know I don't... If Julius had something wrong with him, he or Sister Stadsklev, I don't know what it would be. That's right. In the prayer line, I guess I'm a stranger, 'course I... Brother Brown, these men here, I know them. But I want you to believe. And may the Presence of the Lord come and heal the sick.
L-53 What do you think about it, little Mexican lady, setting out on the end there, suffering with a nervous condition, setting there with a little scarf around your head, do you believe with all your heart? You been extremely nervous lately, haven't you? If that's right, raise up your hand. All right. Now, your faith has healed you. You can go home and be well.
Now, do you have to have one, anyone on the platform. That woman was setting there, believing that to be the truth. Watch her, how she's weeping. She can't help it. That Light fell right over her. That's what makes her act like that. See? That woman's been so nervous, till the devil's even tried to tell her that she's crossed the separating line. That's right. Blackness hangs around her; but she's healed now.
Little Mexican man right behind her with a back trouble, you believe God would make you well, sir? You believe that? All right, sir. That's what you had, is that right? Raise up your hand if that's right. Now, you can go home and your back trouble has left you. Amen.
L-54 Here's a lady setting right in here, right down here looking at me, white woman looking towards me. She has a back trouble too. If she believes with all of her heart, she can be made well. If you believe it. That's up to you. God--God will do it, if you'll accept it, and believe with all your heart, God will make you well.
What do you think about it, little lady? Do you believe with all you heart? If you would, epilepsy would leave you. Never have to have it no more. You believe that God would make you well? Would you believe Him, trust Him? If you would, it'd never bother you, if you can believe with all your heart.
Arthritis would leave you, sir, if you'd believe with all your heart. Amen. See? You don't have to have people up here. You just have to have faith.
What do you think of that throat trouble, believe it would leave you, make you well, the lady setting right next there. When that man raised his hand, It jumped to you and I seen that Light going; It went up there in the balcony to that girl setting and come back down here to you again. You have throat trouble. That's right. You believe that God make you well? It's left you now. Amen. Have faith in God.
L-55 Come, lady. You believe with all your heart? I'm a stranger to you. I don't know you. God does know you. If God will tell me what's your trouble right here, you be the judge, do you believe that you could accept it then? You believe that His Presence would be here then?
Will the audience believe with all their heart? Now, the lady's a stranger to me. I've never seen her in my life. But God knows you. You know I'm a stranger. Is that right? If it is, so the people could know, raise up your hand. The lady's already anointed. The Light's on the lady, 'cause she's a Christian, a believer.
I see the little lady all upset about something. She's praying, moving back and forth. And she's got trouble with her lungs too. That is right. I see something... You're fixing for a... No, you have been operated on. It was a gall condition you was operated on for. That's right.
Then you're upset about somebody, a son about twenty-one years old, got a spirit of evil has overcome the boy. That's right. I can't heal. But you can't hide your life now. See? It's in His Presence. That's true. Will you believe God for these things?
O God of heaven, send Thy mercies upon the woman, and may she go from here and be made well, and may the tears on this handkerchief be tokens for her son. I pray in Jesus' Name. Amen. God bless you, little lady. Go believing...?...
L-56 Now, don't doubt. Have faith. It's not bad, son. Don't worry. It'll leave you; just believe now. You're a fine young man. It's a shame. Don't worry, you'll overcome that now, if you'll just believe.
I never seen you in my life as I know of, but God knows you. You're not here for yourself. You're here for somebody else. That man doesn't even, is not even here. He lives in California. That man's your brother. And he's had something wrong with him, and that--that's connected with this same thing here. Your brother had something like the flu, and it hurt him, and it affected his mind. That's right. That is true.
You believe that he will--he will be healed? Go tell Mr. Buford then that he will be well. In the Name of the Lord Jesus, may he receive his healing. Amen. God bless you. Go, believing with all your heart.
If thou canst believe, all things are possible. Now, here's that same thing again. No, here it is. It's... You are suffering with a nervous condition and with trouble in your bowels. That's right. And your husband's suffering with a bowel trouble too, and a mental condition. That's exactly right. There's that devil trying to move through there. All right, take that handkerchief and lay it on him. In the Name of Jesus Christ, may he be made well.
L-57 Have faith in God. Do you believe His Presence is here to heal? I have nothing to do with it.
Now, I don't know you. But God does know you, doesn't He? You believe that? All right. You've got a--a nervous condition. You got something wrong in your side. That's right. You have a heart trouble. That's right. Yes, sir, a nervous heart. Let me tell you, if you believe me to be God's prophet, do you do that? You want me to pray for your grandson, 'cause he's got a nervous trouble? That's right, isn't it? Then you believe me? Then in Jesus' Name, receive what you ask for. Amen.
Have faith in God. If thou canst believe... Now, what is it, friends? It's not me. It's the Presence of the Lord. He's here to heal the sick, to make you well. Believe Him.
Well, your trouble's in your arm and in your back. And about two days ago, you got a fall and hurt them all over again. That's right. Is that strange to you? You're not from here anyhow. You're from out Glendale way. Your name's Mary, isn't it? Go home, and be made well. In the Name of the Lord Jesus.
L-58 Have faith in God. Do you believe?
How do you do, sir? I never seen you in my life, did I, as far as I know. You've seen me, but I've never seen you. Well, here's one thing I want to tell you: A few nights ago setting here in the audience, you accepted your healing from a heart trouble. That's right. Is that right? All right. And you're here now for somebody else. It's your stepson. Exactly right. He's got a spinal condition. Exactly right. He's a alcoholic. You don't even know where he's at. Is that right? You believe me to be His prophet? Then the Presence of the Lord is here to give you your request. O God, in Christ's Name, may he receive it. Amen. God bless you. Have faith.
You believe? Now, friends, this could just keep on going, going, going. But it's--I'm getting weak. That's exactly right. What is it? Because you people are doing it. Your faith is a doing it. It's just a pulling (See?), just a pulling.
L-59 Now, this lady here, I've never looked at her. I couldn't even tell you whether she's a young woman or an old woman. If God will show me here what's wrong with this woman, will you believe with all your heart? All right, lady, if you believe with all your heart you can go home and eat your supper, and the ulcer in your stomach will be gone. You believe it? All right, then go eat your supper. Amen. In the Name of the Lord Jesus.
If you believe with all your heart, kidney trouble will leave you...?... Do you believe you'll get well? Let's say, "Praise the Lord." Do you believe His Presence is here? How much do you believe? With all your heart?
L-60 I wonder if there's a sinner here that believes that His Presence is here. Do you? Do you believe He's here? It may be your darkest hour, that you've had, right now, but if you believe with all your heart, will you come here and stand with me just a moment for prayer? Will you do it? God bless you, sir. Come right out. That's the way to do it. Move right out. Amen. God bless you.
What about you, lady, setting there, you want to come up? God will heal you of that poor circulation that you've been having setting there. That shock you? You've been having poor circulation, haven't you? If that's right raise up your hand. All right, come stand here.
L-61 All right, sinner, come on now. It's your time, backslider, you lukewarm church member, you sinner. It's your time to come while the Presence of the Lord is here. Will you believe it? Let's bow our heads now just a moment.
O God, if this is the last meeting that Phoenix will ever have, You've witnessed Yourself alive. You are here. Your Presence is here to do the greatest healing, to heal the sin sick soul, to heal the weary, to bring those in who are indifferent, those people who joined church and doesn't know You by the Spirit. They've never been borned again. They don't know what it means to have peace, that perfect peace that passes understanding. I pray, God, that You'll cast away all the fear, and bring those people around this altar just now, and give a healing to the body of Christ.
And Lord, if there be some here who's so churchy and so indifferent, that they won't fellowship with the other group, God, I pray that You'll make them ashamed of theirself; and if they're guilty of this sin may they come to the altar now and confess theirself. And may there be a breaking up in Phoenix, an old fashion get-together, a pouring out of the Holy Ghost because of Your Presence. Grant it, Lord.
L-62 Now, I ask you to come, with your heads bowed and in prayer. And while the choir sings with us, will you come? Come, sinner; I want you to stand around the altar, backslider, and backbiter. I want you to come and stand around the altar.
In Christ's Name, if you judge me to be His prophet, I tell you this, that in Christ's Name, you'll pay for your sins if you leave this building tonight without coming here and making things right before God. Now, if you believe me by vision, if you believe that God has spoke to me, and believe that He speaks through me, make your way to this altar, if you are not right with God. Let us sing...?...
Just as I am, without one plea,
But that Thy blood...
Come down out of the balcony up here. Come on. Come down out of the balconies. That's it. Come right on down.
... that Thou bidd'st me come to Thee,
O... (Right back this a way, come down, right now... )
God...
L-63 Listen, sinner friend, you that's indifferent, you may be setting in the balcony, you may be thinking it's a long ways down to this altar, but brother, from hell to heaven is a long ways too. Come now. Come out of your seat now. If you are convinced... If you're not, I don't know whether there's any hope for you or not.
After Christ coming and proving His Word, making Hisself known, and coming present like this, and doing what He is doing, the living God, Who's raised from the dead, and standing here... And if I--you judge me to be His servant and me pleading to you with all my heart, my poor hoarse different voice will call out in the hour of your death, on your dying bed. It'll haunt you through all ages. Make your way to the altar while we sing.
Just as I am, without one plea, (Won't you come?)
... that Thy blood was shed for thee,
And that Thou bidd'st me come to Thee,
O...
That's... Come right out of the balcony, right down; we'll wait for you. God bless you, sis. God bless you, children.
... I come! (Hum it now.) [Brother Branham begins humming--Ed.]
L-64 Oh, would you turn Him away while His Presence is here? Come right on, young man. God bless you. That one soul might be a Gospel preacher coming there, that'll sweep the message of the Lord Jesus across the country. Come right on, man. God... That's right, brother. That's right, sister. Here comes a man packing his baby. He wants to come anyhow, and his little wife. God bless them. Come right on down. That's right.
O Lamb of God, I come! I come!
L-65 Here comes a poor Indian woman; here's another one, weeping, coming down. Won't you come? That's right, my Indian sister. It's for whosoever will. Come right... That's right. Christ died to save sinners, regardless of who they were. Won't you come just now? How could you set still, knowing that there's something on your heart and mind? How could you do it, to know that sin has separated you from the blessings of God, and His Presence here. If you don't believe it, I challenge you to accept it.
Now, this is not something made up, some psychology. This is the Lord Jesus raised from the dead, two thousand years, infallible proof. The same Life that He lived, He's living right here among you tonight.
L-66 God bless you, little man. God bless you ladies there. Won't you come? Just as I am, and waiting not to rid my soul of one dark blot. Won't you come? That's right, young man, walk right down. God bless your gallant soul.
If He will hear me, if right here on this platform the power of God could make a blind baby or a crooked-eyed baby come straight, cause the things to happen that's been happening, standing here and proving by infallible proofs that He's here, sure He wants your soul.
Just remember, in the morning, may be too late. At eleven o'clock tonight, may be too late. An ambulance may be screaming and blood running out of your vessels, through your arms, and you're gone. What did He say? "If you won't accept Me, neglect me, in the days while you are now, in the days of your calamity, I'll only laugh at you."
What would it be, if you're a cold, formal church member, setting here expecting the church to take you to heaven? The church will only confuse you. Christ can take you to heaven, and Him alone.
L-67 I don't care, if you're Catholic, that doesn't matter. A Catholic, if a Christian, a Catholic is a Christian and believes on the Lord and is borned again, he will go to heaven. If a Methodist, that don't matter, Presbyterian, Lutheran, or a Pentecostal, no matter...
Oh, you say, "I've spoke in tongues." That don't have nothing to do with it. "I've shouted." That still don't have nothing to do with it. Paul said, "I could speak in tongues like men and angels and still be lost. I could have faith to move mountains and still be lost." That ain't it. If the Divine love of God isn't in your heart to take everything of the world out, you're lost. That's right. And the devil's only deceiving you.
L-68 Now, if you believe me to be His servant, if God has proved by His Word, by His Spirit, that I'm telling you the truth, then listen to me. Tomorrow may be too late. Come now, while we sing once more "Just As I Am." Everyone now. Here's your last call. After this call, it'll be between you and God. I'm willing. Look at this nice big altar call here, sinners repenting. Won't you come and join with them. Come on now, while we sing just once more. All right, sister.
Just as I am, Thou wilt receive,
Oh, will wel... (God bless you, little boy) pardon,
... cleanse, relieve;
Because ('cause you what) promise I believe, (I believe)
(You're here, Lord. I believe You're raised from the dead. O Lamb of God.) I come! I come!
[Brother Branham begins humming--Ed.] Come right on. People are coming from the balcony. They may be coming to the altar. I want them to come right on. I'm waiting for you, dear friend. Oh, this little body of yours is not worth very much, but that soul's worth ten thousand worlds. This is healing on a higher level. This is eternal healing.
If a man gets healed here at the platform, he will be sick again if he lives long. But if a man gets saved here, he's got Everlasting Life and will be raised up in the last day. That's the difference. This is eternal healing. This is temporarily healing. But Christ is here proving...
L-69 Now look, has He proved it? First His Word said so; then He come; He moved through the audience, showed signs and wonders that He was alive. Then He... I made a call, 'cause He told me too. I made an altar call. Last night I didn't. Tonight He told me to do it. When I made the altar call He said, "There's people to come." I made the altar call. "No man can come to Me, except My Father draws him first."
Is He here? Certainly. "And all that comes to Me, I'll give them Everlasting Life, and will raise them up at the last day. He that heareth My words, and believeth on Him that sent me, has Everlasting Life, and shall never come to the judgment, but is passed from death to Life."
L-70 You come because you have been warned of God; you've accepted it. And you when you come here, and bow your heads, and surrender to God, and repent of your sins, you are borned again. You're a candidate then to be baptized into the Church by the Holy Ghost, into the Body of Christ. There's only one baptism; that's Holy Ghost baptism. "By one Spirit we are all baptized into one body."
You become a believer, are borned again when you believe. "He heareth My words, believeth on Him that sent Me, hath Everlasting Life," right now. But God baptizes you into the Body and puts you into the service by the Holy Ghost. This is what you do for God; that's what God does for you. There's the difference. You repent and accept what God has done; then God gives you the next, which is the baptism of the Holy Ghost.
Peter said at the day of Pentecost, "Repent, every one of you, and be baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to them that's far off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call."
This--this is the same Gospel that Peter preached at the day of Pentecost, same signs, same wonders, same things, same Jesus. Just closing now, so I'll be sure I got every one.
L-71 The Bible says, "There'll be a day when it will not be light or dark." Did the Bible say that? Right. "But in the evening it shall be light."
Notice, this Bible is a Oriental Book. The light geographically rises in the east; it sets in the west. And civilization has traveled from east, westward. We're at the west coast now, where the east and west meets.
Look, when the sun rose in the eastern country, the baptism of the Holy Ghost fell upon the apostles and the Jews. Now, since then there's been a dismal day. It hasn't been light, neither has it been dark. It's been a gloomy day. Just a day to join church and membership. But the Bible promised in the evening that same sun that shined over there, will shine out in the evening time. Here it is, on the Gentiles. The sun shined in the east; it's shining in the west. It's sun-setting time. The Holy Ghost is here, doing the very same things that He did...?... [Blank.spot.on.tape--Ed.] here now. It'll be light in the evening time. Hallelujah! Oh, my poor Irish heart is thrilled to know that we are accepted. Praise be to God. This is that.
L-72 I want every minister now to take their place around this altar here, every minister and co-worker, every one make your way. If there be some left, come around. You're now going to see great healing. That's right. Oh, my.
It'll be Light in the evening. The same Jesus that worked with the Jews in the east, the same Jesus is alive tonight with the Gentiles in the west. It's evening time. The same Holy Ghost, the same signs, the same wonders, the same scoffers, the same church members scoffing, making fun... "There'll come scoffers in the last days, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, and despisers of those that are good; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away." It's evening time. The evening Lights are here.
L-73 Let's every Christian bow your head now. I want to talk to these that's at the altar. God bless you, sister. Go on your road now and be made well in the Name of the Lord Jesus. Oh, what a moment. What a moment.
I spoke in His Name. He turned around and spoke back that I told the truth. You accepted that on the basis of God's Word. He's here to heal you, heal your soul, make you a Christian. You Indian, you Spanish, you Anglo-Saxon, whoever you are, God is here. God is here.
Little girl, the Lord Jesus is here to make you every whit whole, honey. Little boy, Jesus is here. Grandmother, Jesus is here. Grandfather, Jesus is here. Young man, Jesus is here. Oh, young lady, Jesus is here. He's here. He's accepting you because you've come to Him. Now, we're going to offer prayer. And I want every person to bow your head, everyone to join with us in prayer.
L-74 O eternal and everlasting God, upon Whom the crown of immortality has been set, "This is My beloved Son; hear ye Him." Moses and Elijah and all has passed away. All laws and ceremonies is finished. "This is My beloved Son. Come unto me all ye that labor and heavy laden," He said, "I'll give you rest. He that comes to Me, I will in no wise cast out."
These people, Lord Jesus, as You're here at the platform in this great power, showing Yourself infallible, the resurrected One, the proof... Oh, no excuses. People are left without an excuse. You're here.
L-75 And here stands Spanish, Indian, Anglo-Saxon, Irish, German, all different types of people. As Thou has died to save the world, and Abraham called the father of nations. Through the seed, by Isaac come Christ; through Christ's death, we become dead to the things of the world and joint-heirs with Him and are Abraham's seed. And we call those things which are not, as though they--as are as though they were not, because we believe God's Word. With the operation of the Holy Spirit, Who could raise a rank sinner from his seat and send him up here to this altar... Something's happened. Something's taken place.
How could a pig ever be told that he's wrong? How could the lamb ever make the pig believe that his diet was wrong? Never could he, until the nature of the pig had been changed. O God, that's what You've done to these people tonight. You've convinced them that they're wrong, and they want their nature changed. And you changed their attitude and brought them to this altar. And here they stand as penitent souls.
Oh, as Your servant, Lord, I call on You in Jesus' Name, and ask that every soul here will be saved and filled with the Holy Ghost. Grant it, Lord. Heal every sick person, physically, that's in the building. Get glory out of the service, Lord, just now. In Jesus' Name, we wait for this great power to take place.
L-76 Now, with our heads bowed. Prayer of faith shall save the sick, spiritually, physically, whatever way it is. Now, you people standing here that's praying with the sinner, lay your hand over on them, put your hand over on the sinner friend. Out in the audience... Now, everyone reverently...
I want to know that these who are standing here who come for salvation, that you thoroughly believe that Christ, the Son of God, brought you from your seat to stand here before these people... "No man can come to Me, except My Father draws him." You could not have come on your own power.
You are a dead, motionless person, without something operating you. And do you mean to tell me that the devil would make you raise from your seat and come here? Never. It was some kind of a Spirit come within you that said, "You're wrong. You go up to that altar and confess your sins. I'll be there to meet you." That's Him talking to you now.
L-77 And as you have bowed your head and confessed your sins, God is just to forgive them. And now, God being so just to forgive you your sins, will you raise your right-hand to God and accept Christ as your Saviour now? Now, that's something... God bless you, every person. Everyone has their hands up. Thanks be to God. They now accept Christ.
What did you do when you raised your right-hand? You broke every scientific law there is. Gravitation would've held your hand down, but the Spirit that's within you made a choice; and God caused you to raise your hand towards heaven to Him, to accept Him as your Saviour. You are saved by the grace of God. And by doing that you have Eternal Life.
Do you desire the baptism of the Holy Ghost? If you do, raise up your hand, if you desire the baptism of the Holy Ghost. Right on the same ground that you're saved on, Jesus sends the Holy Ghost for you. If you will believe.
L-78 I want the audience to stand to their feet just a moment. Some good voice, have you to pray a prayer. Brother Ballard, Brother Moore, some of you, come here, one of you.
Friends, these are new babies. These people are borned again. They believed on the Lord Jesus Christ and accepted Him as personal Saviour. They're names a few moments ago, went on the Book of Life. That's God's eternal Word. Do you believe it, say "Amen."
Now, they want the baptism of the Holy Ghost to be co-workers with us together, out here in this great field. I want the people who has the Holy Ghost now, come, laying around close, ministers especially, to lay hands on them. While I'm going to ask Brother Ballard if he will come forth and pray the prayer, and every one of us together, that these people will receive the baptism of the Holy Ghost. All right, Brother Ballard, while we bow our heads.

57-0305 - Madison Square Garden, Phoenix, AZ,
L-62 Now, if you will, I'm going to ask you for just a few moments maybe say fifteen minutes. If you'll be real quiet. Now, we've heard the message. The sinners has accepted Christ. Surely we found favor with Him.
Now, what's next, Brother Branham? All right. It was God Who lead those sinners to Him all around. It's God. Now... "What do you do now Brother Branham?" Yield myself to the Spirit and by a Divine gift. I just--just yield myself to His Spirit; He takes over. He does the work, not me. It's not my words that's speaking it. It maybe my voice, but it's His power speaking through that voice. Just like the mule, or like the prophets, or anything that God takes over. He uses it.
L-63 Now, here's a man. Come here, sir. Now, here stands a man tonight, and so far as I know, both of us are strangers to each other. If that's right, raise up your hand?
Now, I do not know the man. He does not know me. If I come here and said... I'll put my hands on you, "Hallelujah, you're going to get well."
Now, he has a right to kinda, "Well, I hope I do." See?
But if I say, "Oh, in another six months you're needing finances. That's what you come to ask God. You got a little family that's starving, and you want finances. The day after tomorrow you're going to get them."
Well, he'd have the right to "Well, I--maybe I will."
Or if he wants prayer for somebody else. "Oh, they're going to get it." He'd have the right to kinda doubt that. But if the Holy Spirit will go down into his life, like He did Philip...
L-64 Now, the man may be a critic. He may be a infidel. He may be a Christian. I don't know. I never seen the man. But whatever he is, watch what the Holy Spirit will tell about him.
And then, if the Holy Spirit will tell him something that has been, surely he'll know whether that's true or not. Then if He tells him what has been, he'd have faith to believe what will be. Is that right? Then he will be the judge of that. And that would be just the same thing that Jesus did when He was here on earth.
Now look, this is a man. There was a man came to the Lord Jesus, a good man. And Jesus said, "Behold, an Israelite." Now, they all dressed alike. He could've not been an Israelite. He could've been a Greek or something else. But Jesus knowed he was an Israelite, a good honest man. And so it kinda a astonished him. He said, "When did You know me, Rabbi (or reverend, teacher)?"
He said, "Before Philip called you, when you were under the tree I saw you." What eyes, thirty miles around the mountain the day before. The first time He'd ever saw him.
And the man looked at Him and said, "Rabbi, You are the Son of God."
Jesus said, "Because I told you that..." See, that was the sign of the Messiah. [John 1:47-50]
L-65 Now, whether He will or not I don't know. I can't say that. That goes to God alone. But if you'll be real reverent, and we'll trust God to do it. And just think: If He does do it, why, it ought to electrify this city.
How can we seat so gross and groggy and know that the living Christ is in our midst. Shows there's something wrong. That's right. Now, be real reverent. Let me talk to the man.
Now, sir. I see you have a sign on you says, "Personal worker." All right. Now, if we do not know each other, and the Lord Jesus will tell me what you're here to ask Him... To come ask me something, wouldn't do much good, because I have... If it'd be money. I might have two or three dollars to let you have, but I'd do that if you wanted it. I'd give you everything I had, if I could help you.
But if you're wanting healing or wanting something else. Might be something I couldn't do for you. But you know what you want. And if you know what you want and what you need. He's able to tell me like He told the woman at the well. Is that right? If He will do it, will you receive it? Will the audience receive it and believe?
L-66 Now, here's the place where I'm either found to be the truth or a lie. See? Either the truth or it--it's a lie. And remember, it's nothing I can do within myself; it's God permitting it do be done. And all knows that by a Divine gift. May He grant it.
Now, be just quiet. Don't move around. See? When the Spirit once takes a hold... Each one of you are spirits. You know that. If you wouldn't you'd be dead. So it's your spirit (See?) that I catch. And when it hits... If you'll just pray... Just set still. Don't move around; just pray, and say, "God, be merciful to me." Look what He does to you tonight everywhere in the audience, people... Is that right? Way more in the audience than there is up here.
Many don't even say nothing about their letters pouring in and things, how they go to doctors and everything, how they come; it's over. See? Just have faith; believe.
L-67 Now, if I could help you and wouldn't, I'd be a cruel person. But I can't help you, but God can. If God will let me know what you want from Him, then you'll believe Him, believe me to be His servant?
If the audience can still hear my voice. I see the man walking; it's in the floor. And his trouble is up in here around his eyes or head. It's a--it's a sinus trouble. I see him rubbing up in here kinda in this way, sinusitis. And you got something wrong with your side. That's right. And you've had an operation. And that operation is the cause of your side being that way. That's right. Now, do you believe? Is that the truth? You believe? Then let's pray.
Kind heavenly Father, in the Name of the Lord Jesus, I pray that Your mercies will be shed for this man by the Holy Ghost, and may he be healed through Christ's Name. Amen. God bless you, brother. Over now, go rejoicing, and being happy.
L-68 How do you do, lady? Would I be hypocrite to stand here before this sacred desk, if I could help you, you know I'd do it. Seeing that your hair is graying, both hands has probably done a many day's work, and here you stand tonight wanting something from God. If I could help you, I'd do it. But the only thing that I can do is preach the Word the best that I can, and then by a Divine gift help you if I can.
I see you at the house or place, and you're fixing a table. And it's something about when you're eating. It's your stomach. You got stomach trouble. That's right. And then you've got a growth; that growth's in the side. That's right, isn't it? Raise your hand if that's right? Now, He Who knows you, and you know I don't, do you believe that He will make you well if I'll ask Him? There's something here that's got me anointed. You know that; I'm... You know that. What do you think it is? You think it's God? Well, then God said this, "These signs shall follow them that believe: if they lay hands on the sick they shall recover." Do you believe it?
Our heavenly Father, I lay hands upon this woman and ask for her to be healed in Jesus Christ's Name. Amen. Now, go believing. Don't doubt. With all your heart now. God bless you, sister. [Mark 16:17]
L-69 What do you think? Setting there praying, aren't you? If I tell you what you're praying about, would you believe me to be God's prophet? About your back. That's right, isn't it? If that's right raise up your hand? All right. It's over now. You can go home and be well. Your faith touched Something, didn't it? It touched Christ. Now, have faith and believe.
I challenge this audience in the Name of Christ, to look this way and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. Just look and live. Don't doubt, but have faith.
All right, little lady, being that you're setting there praying like that, because I spoke of his back, you had back trouble too. That's right. That's right. You have sinusitis also. That's right, isn't it? You was right there praying, "Lord, let it be me tonight." Is that right? All right, you got it now. You touched Him.
See what I mean? Look and believe. The Bible said, "Look and live." You believing? [John 5:25]
L-70 What do you think setting there with your hand back on...? You believe? You're praying to, aren't you? You believe that Jesus Christ the Son of God has sent me to do this? You do? All right. You got skin trouble, haven't you? Is that right, raise your hand? You believe you're healed? All right. Go home and be well then in Christ's Name. Do you believe?
Now, lady, I guess I'm a stranger to you. I don't know you, never seen you. But God does know you. Isn't that right? A man up here...?... All right, have faith now. If God will reveal to me what you are here for, will you believe it? Now, see, the reason that you don't... I could talk to you a long time. He'd keep telling me more and more I talk, as much as God would show me. See? But contacting your spirit (See?), that's what brings it.
Been sick this week, haven't you? Frankly, you've been in bed all week. That's right. You've had hemorrhages. That's right. You got colitis in the bowels, haven't you? Your name is Mrs. Reynolds, isn't it? Uh-huh. You live at 2010 Henshaw. Now, go on back up there and be over it and get well in the Name of the Lord Jesus. If thou canst believe, all things are possible.
L-71 All right, lady. We're strangers to each other. I don't know you, never seen you, don't know nothing about you; but there's Someone here Who does know you. If He will reveal Himself, will you believe His resurrection? Now, look. You're aware that something's going on, aren't you? And you know you wouldn't feel that way because of me standing here. That Light settled over you. See that's what makes you...?...
Now, you're suffering with an extreme nervous condition, which is caused by the time of life you're living. And you have something wrong in your chest, and you have something wrong in your stomach. That's right. And you have a growth on your leg, knot like. That's right. Now, do you believe me to be His prophet, I mean, His servant? That word stumbles the public. You do? Then I... Surely He will help you. Yes.
You're got someone else you're praying for. And that's a grandchild, granddaughter, granddaughter. And she's got a growth on the knee. And she don't live in this country. She lives in a flat country in the eastern country. It's in Ohio. That's exactly right. Just a moment; just a moment, lady.
L-72 The man sitting right down here, the missionary, preacher, his wife's setting next to him praying for a headache condition. There's something about Ohio with you. I don't know you. I've never seen you. But it's someone who's close to you that was healed in my meeting in Ohio of TB. It's a little boy, and his mother's been prayed for the same. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD. All right, go on your road rejoicing. You can have what you ask for, lady. God be merciful to you. Oh, do you now believe?
Now, sir, I don't know you, you know that. I don't know you, but God does know you. Let me have your hand just a moment. You got ulcers. That's right. Correctly. You believe me to be God's prophet? You would? You're doing something that's making those ulcers worse. Tobacco will ruin them, make you worse than ever. Do you believe God will take that cigarette away from you and make you... Will you surrender that cigarette and your life to Christ, right now? You will? Then may the God of heaven take away the iniquity and heal this man in Jesus Christ's Name. Amen. Go on your road rejoicing, sir. Join some real good church and make...
L-73 Don't move friends. Just set still. See? There's something happened. I seen a hospital. It's an old woman, and she's in a--a mental hospital. It's that woman's mother setting right there. She's praying for her mother in a... You believe that God will heal her? The Lord grant it to you, sister.
God can heal cancer, anything else and make you well. You believe He can make that cancer leave you? Then I condemn it; in the Name of Jesus Christ may it go from you. Amen. Have faith in God.
How you do, sir? Those wearisome coughing hours, asthmatic condition is a horrible thing. But do you believe Christ can make you well? You do? Our heavenly Father, I bless this man in the Name of Jesus Christ; may he be well. Amen. God bless you, my brother. Go, and be made well.
My sister, God can heal heart trouble the same as anything else. You believe that He will make you well of heart trouble, if I'll ask Him? It's a nervous heart is what it is. You have it worst when you lay down. See? I see you laying down, smothers; gas is what it really is, 'cause push up against the heart. O God of heaven, settle the nerves of this poor little woman and make her well in Jesus' Name. Amen. God bless you, sister. Have faith now.
Strange, when I said that to her something happened to you, didn't it? It's the same thing. You both was healed at the same time. So just go on off the platform rejoicing, saying, "Thanks be to God."
L-74 Come, lady. The lady coming has a black shadow following her, the shadow of death, which is cancer. You believe God will heal you, lady, and make you well? Our kind heavenly Father, as my own strength is fading away, I pray for this woman, Oh, if You could heal a opossum, how much more can You make this saint well. I condemn this spirit of death on her and ask that she live in Jesus' Name. Amen. Go, happy, sister, rejoicing.
You got a stomach condition, nervous. Causes you to have distress through like, the belching up of the foods and stuff that goes into your stomach. Do you believe that God will make you well? Will you accept Him now as your Healer? O eternal God, in Jesus Christ's Name, I condemn the devil that's harming my sister, and ask that he leave her in Christ's Name. Amen.
Have faith in God. Do you believe everyone? With all your heart you believe? Oh, hour after hour this can happen. But what does it confirm? Jesus Christ, alive. Jesus is here.
L-75 What do you think of it, little lady, looking at me there with female trouble right back there in the back of the audience. Do you believe that God will make you well? You believe it with all your heart? If you believe it, all right, you can have it. The Lord bless you.
What do you think about it, the rest of you. Do you believe with all your heart? You believe God will heal you now? I tell you, friend, looky here. I'm just so weak I can hardly stand here. I... And the whole room just looks like kind of a--a... I know you don't call me a fanatic; surely you don't.
If one little woman touching Him made virtue go from Him, what, if that the Son of God, what about me a sinner, saved by grace. And what's doing these visions? Not me, it's you. It's your faith a touching Him, and He's answering back. Do you understand? Do you believe He's alive? Do you believe He's here to heal you? Then why not accept Him.
L-76 I wonder right here while we're standing, how many of you is convinced that the Lord Jesus is here? Raise up your hand. Now, I'm going to ask for those... Just a minute, while we stop the line a minute. Those who raised their hand, along with those who did not raise their hand, I want you to come here just a minute. While the anointing is here with me, I--I--I want you to come here. I want you to come here, just... I want to pray for you. You sinners, that raised your hand, I want you to come. The sinners coming seeking salvation... I want you to come to the altar right here now. Come down out of the balconies, every one. Will you come right now. I want you to stand here while we pray for your soul, which is far more than your physical healing. Won't you come? [Matthew 6:33]
L-77 God bless this poor old man coming on crutches. Sir, come, give your heart to Him; you can walk away without your crutches. "Seek ye first the Kingdom of..."
And that Thou bidd'st me come to Thee,
O Lamb of God, I...
What's--that's right. Come right down out of the balcony. Come right here now. You say, "Brother Branham, why do you stop the prayer line early?" Because I'm seeking the lost. That's it. I want you to come now. Move right on down. That's right, give them room back there. Come right down and stand here a minute. I want to come here and pray with you. That's it. Come right on down this a way. Move yourself right down here.
Blood was shed for me,
And that Thou bidd'st me come to Thee,
O Lamb... I come! I come!
L-78 All right, backslider, I'm waiting for the Holy Spirit to lead you down here.
I seen a little colored girl come down, standing here. Little red dress on, little white ribbon in her hair. There was a little girl taken captive one time. And she said to her master, "I would to God that you were over in my country. There's a prophet over there could recover you and heal you of that leprosy." How'd that little girl giving testimony to her faith in the prophet, caused a immortal story to be wrote in the Bible.
Will you come just down now? Come right on, you that are needing Christ. You that has a spiritual need of Christ, won't you come? I believe there was more hands than this that went up. I want you to come right on--on. Won't you do it? I'm persuading you now.
L-79 Here sometime ago... You might've heard the little story. It was some time ago. There was a man standing in a court, being tried. And while he was being tried, he said to the judge; the judge found him guilty and said, "I sentence you to hang by your neck, until you're mortal--mortal life is gone."
And the man ran up, and he said, "Judge, don't you know me?"
Said, "No, I don't."
He said, "One day when I was a little boy, I was laying in a wagon. You were a young man then, judge. Someone shot a gun down the street. The horses run away and were going to run over a big bluff. And you rushed in front of the horses, and grabbed them, and drug the hide from your feet, until you stopped those horses and saved my life." Said, "Judge, I'm that same boy. Save me again, judge."
He said, "Young man, that day I was your saviour. Today I'm your judge." That might be said to you. Tonight He's your Saviour in the morning He may be your Judge. Won't you come while we sing once more?
Just as I am, and waiting not
To rid my soul from one dark blot,
To Him, whose blood...
[Blank.spot.on.tape--Ed.]
L-80 And you're here to thank God for His goodness to you. Now, we're going to bow our heads to pray, all over the building everywhere.
Merciful Father, be kind now. And I pray for each of these who are standing here, that they may be touched by Thy Divine power. I pray that You will give to them the forgiveness of all their sins. Grant it, Lord, and I know You will. You promised You would.
And we now present them to Christ, that God has called them to this altar of repentance, and they have accepted Jesus as their personal Saviour. And they're standing here as a testimony to the people, that they have accepted Christ as personal Saviour.
Now, God, I pray that You will baptize them into the body of the Lord Jesus by the baptism of the Holy Ghost. And these Your trained servants instruct them, who can stand here and make known to them this great revelation... I pray that they will receive the Holy Ghost this night. Grant it, Lord. Bless all who's in Divine Presence.
L-81 This lady standing here waiting for her healing. I lay hands on her and ask that You'll heal her in Christ's Name. I ask that You'll heal each one, everybody that's here, every sick person.
Oh, Satan, you know you're going to lose the battle. Christ defeated you at Calvary. You have no power; you were stripped of everything you had. And all you are is a big bluff, and we're calling your hand on that bluff in Jesus Christ's Name. Get out of this building. Come out of the people and go from here. And may the spirit of doubt and superstition leave this building, for the God of heaven Who raised up His Son Christ Jesus, Who is present right now to heal every sick person and to pour out the baptism of the Holy Ghost on the people... Grant it, God, in Jesus' Name.
L-82 Now, while we have our heads bowed, everyone praying, believing... Now, you here seeking the Holy Ghost, I want you to raise up your hand. Raise up your hands if you want God to fill you with the Holy Ghost. All that wants the baptism of the Holy Ghost raise up your hand.
Now, that I'm tired and I'm weak and weary, I'm going to ask our Brother Ballard, a Christian minister, to continue this prayer. The personal workers, lay hands on these people now. Lay your hands on them. Somebody out there that's got the Holy Ghost lay your hands on those that's got their hands up. And now, for a great one unity, a great blast of the power of God, may you receive the baptism of the Holy Ghost and be healed in Jesus' Name.

57-0306 - Madison Square Garden, Phoenix, AZ,
L-58 I told Billy not to give out any prayer cards, and he never. There's no prayer cards give out. But I'm going to take this upon myself. To believe in the message that I have preached to come from God, and if I have preached the truth, God's obligated to confirm that to be the Truth. That's right.
And I believe in true Bible signs. I believe that the thing Jesus did when He was here on earth, He does it today, no more or no less. What He did, He did then, He does now. And these things are written. And not to take into, or to add to, or take away from.
Now, if I told you the truth, I pray that God will confirm that and let His Word say so. And whether you've accepted the truth or not may God vindicate it without one person called to this platform. And I don't say He will. You're setting out in the audience. I don't know. But if He will, will it make all of you believe that God is putting a seal on what I've said? As long as I prove that it's God's Word will you believe it?
L-59 Then pray, you that's sick and needy. Some of you here in the front so you're closer to me, just pray. Start in praying if you're sick, needy. Let God anchor it, and if He does it, then surely you'll see that...
Now, you say, "Brother Branham, there's a sign." Yes, but that's what the Bible said would happen. "The things that I do, shall you also." What did He do? Think it over, pray.
If you could only believe, little lady. If you just wouldn't doubt it...
Now, under the inspiration of the Holy Ghost that the Angel of God that followed the children of Israel... How many knows it was the Pillar of Fire, let's see... A Pillar of Fire... How many believes that was Jesus Christ? Let's see your hands, the Logos. How many knows when He was here on earth, He said, "I come from God, and I go back to God." How many knows it? How many knows when after His resurrection, when Paul saw Him on the road, He was still a Light? How many knows that? How many seen that picture, not of me, but of the Light? I believe that's Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever. [John 14:12], [John 13:3], [Hebrews 13:8]
L-60 He's hanging right over this woman, right here. She's suffering with a trouble in her chest. That's exactly right. If that's right, lady, raise up your hand. Hurting, pulling, holding down, laying down you even feel something pull. When you get up at morning you can hardly straighten yourself up. That's right. That's exactly right. Now, you know I--I don't know you, do I? And I'm not reading your mind. Now, you say, "Just by chance." Do you believe that God will heal you?
Now, look, I can't do it. I haven't got nothing here to heal you with. Nobody else has got anything to heal you with. But there's a Spirit of God here that you've touched to bring back the real Bible Truth that He's raised from the dead. Did a woman touch His garment?
L-61 Just that might not think it's an accident. The woman setting next to you... Like you was in a prayer line, lady setting next to her there, look here. Do you believe me to be a servant of God? Do you? Well, look this way just a minute. You have no prayer card or nothing you could never be in the line. You have no prayer card or nothing. All right. Look this a way, just a minute.
As Jesus talked to the woman at the well of Samaria... And He talked to her till He found out where her trouble was, and He told her. And she said, "That's the sign of the Messiah." Now, if that could be repeated, it wouldn't be some sensation, but it would be a sign of Messiah, not me, but you, both of us together, working together by the Messiah. [John 4:7, 25]
L-62 Now, you know I don't know you, never seen you. You have no prayer card, no way for you to get here nor nothing. But how many will believe now that God will reveal it? I don't say He will.
Now, God, You see the situation. Let it be known, Lord. The woman's got cancer. Now, if that's right, stand up on your feet. Is that the truth? Raise up your hand.
Now, do you believe? Why is it. There's a shadow hanging over; it's black. It's death, exactly.
Now, heavenly Father, I cannot control that, but I can ask You. When You was on earth, You said, "I could speak to My Father and He'd send a legion of Angels." I pray this because this woman has been used tonight as an example, that You will take away the demon from her body. And may it leave, as this church prays, not only me, but the rest of us, that that shadow will be gone from the woman. She knows there's something there by her, and has told her by the Bible, page after page that it's the truth. Now, may the demon leave, because it's said in the Bible, "In My Name they shall cast out devils."
That's the sign You said, and I ask it to leave. In Jesus Christ Name for a confirmation to these people I've told the truth. Amen. [Matthew 26:53], [Mark 16:17]
L-63 Now, look, lady. You standing there, now you don't feel like you did when you stood up, do you? You feel better, don't you? Just it's gone. That's exactly right.
Now, you see? Now, you say, "Is that the Bible?"
Absolutely. Jesus said, "The things I do shall you also."
What do you think, setting next to her, little lady setting there with your hands in your lap crying? You're right close to me. You believe? You be the judge.
I don't know you; you don't know me. But God knows you. And you should have an operation, and so it's said, for a gallbladder condition. Now, if that's right, stand up on your feet. Now... [John 14:12]
L-64 What do you think, little lady, setting next to her? Do you believe, with all your heart? If God will reveal to me what your trouble is, will you believe that I tell the truth? You have swelling. You believe that God will make you well of it? You accept it? Stand up on your feet; just stand up. The Lord bless you. By your standing up, you accepted it. It's gone from you. Now, you can be seated and be well.
Now, examine that by the Word. Find out if it's true. There's a lady setting by this empty seat, setting right behind. She's praying, crying, an elderly woman. What makes her cry? There hangs that Light over her. What is that Light? It's Christ. The Bible said so.
L-65 The woman wants to be healed. She wants to be healed from a gallbladder condition. You believe that God will make you well? You do? Then stand up on your feet. You now accept it? All right, go home and be well in Christ's Name.
Just believe. Do you think God would heal you of that liver condition, lady, and make you well? You accept it, believe that He will? He can. You can have it also; just have faith in God. Believe.
You with the back trouble, what do you think? Believe the same thing? All right. Thou canst believe. Look here.
See that woman setting there praying, right on the end? You'd like to get over the arthritis, wouldn't you? That's right. [Mark 9:23]
L-66 Little lady, next to you, also has trouble with the liver also. That's right. The lady failed hers; she didn't answer to it. That Light went straight across and actually fell by you first time. See? You accept yours? Stand up on your feet then. Amen. Then you got it. There's light around you. Jesus Christ still lives.
Do you believe? I've told you the truth, the Bible truth; God said it's the truth. Then let's believe God with all of our heart.
How many in here wants to be healed tonight? I mean by God. Can't you see there's something here? It's the Spirit of God. Why? It's vindicating the Bible, not one little place, not two little places, but the entire Bible.
L-67 Jesus Christ has raised from the dead doing the same things that He did yesterday, will today, and will be forever, the same Lord Jesus. Do you believe it? Then put your hands over on each other. Let's have a word of prayer for the sick.
Now's the time. Oh, if I could only sink this into the heart. You're the person that's sick. I'm tired. I've just preached and strained, and begged, and done everything. It's up to you. God's come down, and done everything He can do to prove it to you. It's your time to pray. It's your time to accept Christ. I've already done it. I already believe Him. Do you believe Him? Then you start praying awhile. What about praying for yourself?
Every baby has to cry for his own candy. One baby can't cry for the next baby's candy. You start crying out to God, if you want to get well. It's up to you. [Hebrews 13:8]
L-68 Now, start praying, every one of you, praying for yourself, and praying for the person next to you, start praying and get well. Believe in God. And when you feel that you've got sufficient faith, raise up and accept it. That's the way to do it.
Now, heavenly Father, here's a group of people. I'm so tired Lord, my... Oh, my heart's broke and everything else. O God, what more can I do? What more can You do? Nothing. It's up to the people. O God, I pray in Christ's Name, that You'll actually fill this building with the Holy Ghost, and such... I don't know what more You could do. You've brought it by Your Word. You've brought it by Your Spirit. You've brought it by the same marks of the Bible. And everything that You said would take place has already done it.
L-69 O God, may the people loosen up and undo their starchy conditions, and get away from their isms, and come back to the true living Lord Jesus and be filled with God's power and healed of their sicknesses and diseases.
O blessed God, I charge the devil in Jesus Name to depart from this place and out of these people. And it's written, "In My Name they shall cast out devils."
All right, stand to your feet if you believe it and accept it. Amen. Raise up your hand and give Him praise now. And the Lord bless you until I see you. Amen. [Mark 16:17]
