57-1208 - Branham Tabernacle, Jeffersonville, IN,
L-67 Here's a man setting right here. A vision's over him, looking right at me. I guess I'm a stranger to you? You're trying to get rid of a habit, aren't you? Get rid of smoking cigarettes is what you're trying to. Is that right, raise your hand if that's right. No, I mean the young man setting back here; I don't know you. We're strangers. Is that right among one another? If it is, wave your hand like this. Is that exactly what you was praying about then? All right. You believe?
What does that? What did he touch? The Bible said that He's the High Priest that can be touched by the feeling of our infirmities. He never touched me. I never seen the man. But he touched Christ Who's here. And Christ used my lips and eyes to speak. [Hebrews 4:15]
L-68 You got your hands up, young man; I see you keep holding your hand. You believe me to be God's prophet? Would you accept what I've told you? If you'd have faith and believe... You think she'd actually be saved? Your girlfriend, you're praying about, ain't it? Uh-huh. You want her to get healed too, don't you? If that's right, stand up on your feet. You, that's right, isn't it? Now, have faith in God and you'll receive it.
I'm a stranger to you, young man, I never seen you. Are we strangers? Raise up both your hands high, if we're strangers. I never seen you in my life; you've never seen me. Now, who... You may be seated now and receive what you ask for. Your faith has granted it to you.
L-69 Do you believe? It was joke awhile ago wasn't it, sister, but it's not a joke now. I knew the Lord would do that, or I thought He would. God can't be played with. He's real. "If thou canst believe..."
Here's a woman setting right back this a way. She's praying for somebody else. The woman's got a nervous condition. She's a Catholic by faith. That's right. She lives on Meigs Avenue, doesn't she? If that's right, raise up your hand, lady. All right. You believe? Then receive what you ask for. "If thou canst believe..." [Mark 9:23]
L-70 What about you way back there? Somebody get the... You know, you're not too far back. Christ knows exactly where you're setting. I challenge you in Jesus' Name to believe now. He's here. His Spirit's here. His power is here.
Here sets a man, setting way back there, looking at me now, got a green tie on, gray suit like; he's praying, also. He wants to be healed of some sort of a stomach trouble, gastric conditions in his stomach and bowels. That's right. You sitting back there. Let me tell you who you are. You was at a doctor yesterday; he examined you. That's right. I don't know you; you know that. But God does know you. Your faith saved you, sir. Praise be to the living God.
L-71 The lady setting right behind him in the next row, about three back in there, there praying for your mother-in-law, crippled condition. If you will believe, all right.
There's a little fellow setting there with his hand up to his mouth, looking at me, way back toward the back. He's got his hand to his mouth; he's praying. There's a sad-like spirit around him. He's wiping his eyes. I can just make out a young man. He's praying for somebody that's a relative of his. The man has been in an institution; it's a young fellow. It's a brother-in-law, a nervous condition, the mental condition. That's correct, sir. You have faith and God will work it for you.
I challenge your faith in Christ. Do you believe Him? Is that three? Oh, it's--it's more than that, isn't it? Now, do you believe? Is your faith settled? Has your heart come open? Raise your hands if your heart's come open. Is the door open? Then let us bow our heads.
L-72 Lord, come near now, blessed Jesus. O God, I am grateful to Thee, Father, that Thou did grant these blessings that they, the people which are now present, will know that it wasn't Your servant. It was the God of heaven Who has honored us this morning by coming into our midst and permitting such to be done, to prove to this Gentile generation before it's wiped from the earth that You are the Messiah. You are the Lord God of heaven. You are here.
O Lord, please, I ask You to give one more great shock to this people as it were, or to open their understanding. For they'll go in their sins if they fail to believe on Thee and confess their doubts and unbelief. May there come such a blessing to the people just now, that they'll know that the Holy Spirit is present, and that He is just as willing to heal them as He is to heal anyone. It's based upon "If thou canst believe, all things are possible." Lord, grant it. And may Thy healing power sweep down into the hearts of the people just now and heal each of them. I thank You, Lord.
When Satan comes in like a roaring lion, the Spirit of the Lord raises up a standard against him and overthrows him. The great Satan who claims to be the great one, but our Lord Jesus is the great One, He and Father God. And I pray, Lord, that just now, by Your Spirit, that You'll move through the audience and heal every person. Through the Name of the Lord Jesus we ask it. Amen. [Mark 9:23], [Isaiah 59:19]
L-73 You believe you're healed? You believe that by His stripes that something anchored down in your heart, you have the twenty-five cents that's going to make you walk from the building? Do you have it? Raise your hand. "I have it. It's a anchored faith. I don't care how long it takes, how many days, how many hours, I've got the purchase power of my healing right now, and I'll walk from this building right now just the same as if I was perfectly well." You may be when you raise to your feet. You may not be; you may not be for a week. I don't know. But you will be, if you've got the faith to believe it. God is faith. Believe Him with all your heart.
Now, just shut yourself in with God now. Now, just start like this, "Lord, I believe. Lord, I believe. All my doubts are buried in the fountain. Lord, I believe. Saviour, raise my faith in Thee till it can move the mountain. O Lord, could you be wrong? You can't be wrong. First, if Brother Branham had not one thing to say, Your Word said so. Then by grace You permitted Brother Branham to look over this building to many people, to do the same thing that You did when You walked Galilee. If I've had a doubt in my heart, Lord, then take it away. Before my day is finished, before I'm called on to answer at judgment, take away my sin of unbelief and make me Thine right now. Let me be Thine." God bless you is my prayer. Those...
L-74 Now, while you're praying, shut in with God, there was those who raised their hands that wanted a walk with God, wanted to open your hearts to Him. The altar's open now, my friend. I'd invite each one of you to come here at the altar and kneel down, say, "Lord Jesus, be merciful. I want You to come into my heart. Move all my doubts; move all my fears; move my selfishness; move everything out, and You come in. Come into my heart and be Lord. Oh, I believe You're my Saviour, but You haven't been my Lord."
God bless you, brother. This man's name is Davis. He comes from Virginia. He's here to give up a habit of smoking, and a little grudge that he's held in his heart against a loved one since he was a child. That's what he's at the altar for this morning.
Now, come. You're invited to walk to the altar now, kneel down here before the Christ of God. Don't notice the little humble tabernacle. Notice Who's in here this morning, our blessed Saviour. You come? You're invited. The Lord Jesus waits for you to come, for every cleansing spirit to go from your heart.
... His dear children along.
Some through the water, some through the flood,
Some through the fire, but all through the Blood.
Some through great sorrow, but God gives a song,
In...
Walk up this morning. Kneel down in His Presence.
Sometimes on the mount where the sun shines so bright,
God leads the dear children along;
Sometimes in the valley in the darkest of night,
God leads His dear children along.
Some through the waters, some through the flood,
Some through the fire, but all through the Blood;
Some through great sorrow, but God gives a song,
In the night seasons and all the day long.
Some through the water, some through the flood;
Some through deep trials, but all through the Blood;
Some through great sorrow, but God gives a song,
In the night season and all the day long.
Tho' sorrows befall us, and Satan oppose,
God leads His dear children along;
Through grace we can conquer, defeat all our foes,
God leads His dear children along. (Won't you let Him lead you?)
Some through the waters, some through the flood,
Some through the fire, but all through the Blood;
Some through great sorrow, but God gives a song,
In the night seasons and all the day long.

57-1211 - Essex Theater, Newark, NJ,
L-71 So if You're the same, Your works has got to be the same. He said so. But you see, you say, "Lord, is my eyes so blind that I can't see that? Have mercy on me and open my eyes, Lord." That's when you'll get somewhere. And then like a little child say, "Thank You, Father," till something happens in your heart. Then when that certain something happens in your heart, then watch what takes place. Watch what the Lord will do.
Now, to you here in the prayer line, you that have your cards, now, I want to ask you something. I suppose that all of us, we're strangers to one another, are we? I don't know you. If that's right raise up your hand, you that's in the prayer line. You know I don't know you, know nothing about you, raise up your hand. All right. That's good.
L-72 How many out there in the audience knows that I don't know you, raise up your hand, you sick people. Now, see I'm a stranger. Now, if there happens to be someone around who never knowed... I want you to be real reverent. Now, if Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever, and...
Is this the lady to be prayed for? Come here just a minute, lady. Now, this lady here, I believe... Did you raise your hand that we didn't know each other? Is that right? Now, here's a--here's a perfect case to begin with. Here's a lady that's never seen me, and I've never seen her. [Hebrews 13:8]
L-73 Now, here's a picture that I've talked of awhile ago, a woman and man meeting for their first time, the woman of Samaria, and Jesus of Nazareth. Now, Jesus, His body, corporal body has been taken up and sets at the right hand of God. We know that. The Holy Spirit has come back upon us; the Spirit of God that was in His body, is upon us (Is that right?), promising the same thing.
Now, if this woman... I don't know what's wrong with her. She looks like a good, healthy woman to me. She may tonight... Might not be for her health. It might be finances; it might be domestic; it might be some other trouble. But now, just watch now and be real reverent.
L-74 Whatever her need is, if she will go to talking to God about it, and God will reveal it back to me what she has need of, then who would know if she's in prayer but God alone. Is that right? Now, you do the same out there. You don't have to be up here. You be right out there, and just go to praying, see if the same thing don't take place.
Now, that's an awful challenge. But I've done that before five hundred thousand at a time (See?), of heathens and witch doctors and everything, standing there, would shed your blood in a second. See? So watch Jehovah when He goes to work. Watch what a different attitude. That's what makes the difference.
L-75 This is my first visit in Newark. Don't let it go over. Not by me now (See?), I'm not talking of myself, I'm talking of Him. Your pastors here represent Him in a certain way. They been gifted to do that. I'm not a preacher much, but this is my gift.
Now, if this sister standing here who's a total stranger... We don't know each other, never seen each other in life, and this is our first time meeting. She's standing there; I've asked her to pray and ask God for whatever she has need of. If the Holy Spirit will reveal to me what her trouble is, what she's asking, would that be the same act that the Lord Jesus did when the woman of Samaria come up, and He knowed what her trouble was? Would it be the same act? Would that prove that Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever? [Hebrews 13:8]
L-76 Now, here's our hands, both of us with our hands up. We've never seen each other in life, as far as I know. She might've been in the meeting, but she... I don't know her. God knows that. I don't know the woman, know no more about her than--than I--than you do if you don't know her. See? Now, I don't say that He will. I don't say that He will, but He may. If He does, then you all start believing, and see if He isn't the same yesterday, today, and forever. May the Lord grant it.
Now, lady, I--I just have to talk to you, because after speaking, it's just catching your spirit. That's exactly. Just see what you--you... I want you in your heart (See?) to be praying to the Lord for what you have need of. If it's finances, if it's... Whatever it is, or if it's sickness, or for somebody else, or--or whatever it is, you just keep praying to the Lord.
L-77 And now, Father, I've spoke to this group tonight. I'm at the end of my road. I've tried to say just as reverently as I could what You was yesterday, and saying You're the same today. And now, it's Your time to speak, the invisible God Who is omnipresent. I pray that You'll grant these blessings, that these people might be Your servants and serve Thee; in Jesus' Name we pray. Amen.
Now, I--I don't know what your trouble is, and we're just meeting our first time. I'm not repeating myself, but you can imagine what a nervous strain this is at this time because I'm either going to be found a false prophet or liar. And if I'm found a liar, I quoted the Word, and what's the Word? See? Then where we at, what's the use of having churches?
L-78 If we're just going to have churches to go and gather around, try to do good, why don't be a Buddha church, or a Mohammedan. Why not just have a temple of continuity. Anything you want to believe, anything you want to say, just come together, just make it a lodge. But we speak that there's a living God Who lives now, just the same yesterday, today, and forever.
But now, He promised these things. I believe Him. I believe Him. And I'm sure you're believing Him too, because no one probably might not see this. Between you and I, there's something that's happened. Now, as a--as a--a mortal being that's got to meet God, if this isn't true just now, something come to you, a real sweet quiet feeling. If that's right raise up your hand. See? See, round...?... [Hebrews 13:8]
L-79 They probably don't see It, but right around you is that Light. And then just to the side of It, is death. And it's a--a hideous thing. It's a cancer. And that cancer is... I see them examining for that; that's in the jaw, a cancer in the jaw. Not showing outside, but it's inside, a cancer of the jaw. And... That's true, isn't it?
Now, did you hear that voice? That--that wasn't me, but what it said the truth. Is that right? If it is wave your hand like this to the audience. Now, you see what that makes me do? See? That's just the Holy Spirit taking my voice. I don't... I just look and what I see, I say.
L-80 Now, more you talk to the woman, more would be said. Now, would you like me to talk to her just a little more? All right. Let's just talk again. See? As we just got a few here, and I'll just talk to you just a little--little more.
Now, I don't know what He--what He said, but it seemed like there was a shadow. Now, it's gone from you now. I don't see it at this time. Now, I see the Light returning. Yes, yes it's a lady, and she's something in her jaw: cancer in the jaw. And you have come here with somebody else; a friend brought you here. You're not from here. You're from a place, Brooklyn. See? That's right, isn't it? Now, do you believe? Let us pray now.
Dear Lord and Saviour, Thou art so true, and Your words are so true. I pray Thee to offer me understanding of this people tonight that they will understand that it's Your Presence, Lord, that it's Your Word being made manifest. And You spoke the world into existence with Your word. And the same word that spoke it into existence, says it'll go out.
L-81 And You spoke life, and this woman lives, and Satan is trying to interrupt her with some disease. And I pray with all my heart that You'll remove that disease, and cast away the spirit of disease upon her, and may she go free tonight by her faith in the Son of God. Amen.
Bless you, sister. No room for you to doubt, is there? Just go believing now. Now, do you believe with all your heart? I believe, is there a way there somewhere? Now, look... Now, don't doubt. Now, the blessed Holy Spirit... How many ever seen the picture of It, let's see your hands, the picture of the Angel of the Lord as they taken in... Well, it's taken in Germany and different countries.
Now, that's right here in our little group tonight. That's here in this little theater building tonight, the same Spirit that walked in Galilee in a Man called Jesus of Nazareth, Who was the Son of God, Who promised these things would be done. Now, here it is again tonight. Now, be real reverent. Be in prayer.
L-82 Now, here's another woman. This is a more picture than the other one, for the little scene that we was speaking of, the Jesus and a woman. There was a Samaritan woman, which was of another race. And tonight, this is a colored lady standing here who is another... She's not an Anglo-Saxon. And she's a colored lady, me, a white man. That's the same picture was with Jesus of Nazareth, and the Samaritan woman. See?
How He let her know that there was no difference; all of us are God's children. We all originally came from Adam, and the places we lived in, that turned our skins yellow, brown, white. That had nothing to do. We're off-springs of God. If that colored woman was...
L-83 If I was sick tonight, she could give me a blood transfusion. Yes, sir. And if a--and if the yellow man was sick, she could give him a blood transfusion. But don't never put animal blood with you. It'll kill you. See? We are... God has made of all men, one blood. One blood is in all man. Our colors has nothing to do with it.
Now, here's a white man and a colored woman. And--and I'm a southerner, and she's a northerner. Here we are, brothers and sisters, I trust tonight, in Christ. I don't know. I can't tell. But if we're not, it's only her thought then. See? Now, if the Lord Jesus will return and will say to this woman, what He did like to the Samaritan woman... She may have the same trouble. I don't know. We'll know in a few minutes, if the Lord will permit.
L-84 Now, let us pray, as I speak to the woman. Now, you don't have to look at me, sister. Just be in prayer is all I ask you to do. And it's not a mind reading; it's just... You're just a human being standing there. And if the Lord Jesus will reveal to me what you're here for, and what you have need of, will you believe it with all your heart?
Now, if you're sick and I told you, "Oh, lady, THUS SAITH THE LORD, you're going to get well. Trouble's all over." Well, that...
You might say, "I believe, Brother Branham. I--I believe I would take that for His Word." Well, that would be all right. But that wouldn't be... You'd just have to take my word.
L-85 But if the Lord Jesus is here that'll reveal something that you're in trouble about, or something that you've done in your life that keeps you from getting what you're asking for, or something like that, you'll know yourself whether that's the truth or not. You'll know that. Is that right, audience? You'll know that. And if He knows what was, surely He knows what will be. Now, may the Lord grant as I look to Him and see what the woman's trouble is.
The first thing, if the audience still hears my voice, I see the woman with her hands up. She, oh, she has spiritual problems that she's--she's in trouble about. That is right, isn't it, lady? It's spiritual. You--you're all muddled up, as we call it. You--you--you can't get...
L-86 Here's another thing. I hear you in your prayer, seeking for God to give you the baptism of the Holy Ghost, and you come here tonight after praying, and come here for me to lay hands on you, so that you'd receive the baptism of the Holy Ghost. That right, raise your hand. That's right. That's true, isn't it? I trust--trust that God will give It to you.
Do you believe me to be His prophet? You believe I actually saw that? What if I tell you your name is May, would you believe me? Your last name's Adams. Is that right? If it is wave your hand. Now, do you believe it? Now, go; you're going to receive It. All right. Lord Jesus, grant it to her, for I ask it in Christ's Name. Amen. Have faith in God. Don't doubt. Believe. [Mark 11:22], [Hebrews 13:8]
L-87 Another colored lady... How do you do. You--you believe Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever? You believe me to be His servant? You were praying or something there. You touched something. It turned me. Now, you're suffering with a kind of sinus, headache trouble. That's right.
And then you're in prayer also for this little boy setting next to you with the epilepsy, and you want God to heal him of that. Isn't that right? If that's right, raise up your hand. You believe it? You can have it if you'll believe it. You can. Lay your hands on the little lad.
Father God, I pray that Satan will not be able to get by with this. I--I pray that--that You will heal both of them in Jesus' Name. Amen.
L-88 But I still see a man standing beside of this woman. She's praying for somebody too. You're trouble is in your spine. You got a spinal trouble. That's right. Then you believe me to be God's prophet? You're praying for a brother. And he's blind, isn't he? Amen.
If you believe it with all your heart, you can have it. O Lord, be near unto this woman, and we bless her. In the Name of the Lord Jesus, may she go and receive that what she's asked for, in Jesus' Name. Amen. Don't doubt, sister. You're getting better.
Have faith. Don't doubt. All things are possible to them that believe. Are you believing? Now, you out there in the audience, just start praying. Just start praying. Believe.
Now, here's a--a lady. Is this the patient, brother...?... All right. I suppose we're strangers to one another. That's right. The Lord Jesus knows us both. Now, in feeling that pulling coming from the audience. Now, what it is, it's your faith. [Mark 9:23]
L-89 Now, look, friends, what God does right here, He's doing out there just the same. See? If I would come and pray, anoint you with oil, whatevermore, that wouldn't have... That would, only thing it would do, was just be your faith. You have to believe it anyhow. If you'll just believe right where you are right now, you will receive it just the same. I challenge you to believe.
Now, the lady's standing here. God be merciful to this woman for she is in serious condition. She... Her trouble is in her bowels. That's right. And it's paralyzed, and the bowels are shrinking up. You even when you do an enema, it just, the water comes back. You're very seriously. Isn't that right, sister? That's right. All right, come here now. Let us pray. Everyone pray, 'cause this woman must have a touch from God.
L-90 Now, heavenly Father, in the Name of the Lord Jesus, the Son of God, I ask for this woman's healing. Thou art God, and a woman You can heal. I pray that You'll grant it to her as I lay my hands upon her, while the Holy Spirit that's anointing that knows her life, His Presence, may she be healed. I condemn the enemy that's taking her life, and ask for her life to be extended, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen. God bless you now.
Now, if you believe with all your heart, now, you will--you can have your healing. Okay.
Now, what about you, sister? You believe God take care of that thyroid trouble, and make you well? You was praying for that when I was praying for the woman 'cause standing before me was a redheaded woman, praying, with thyroid trouble. That's right. You're the woman. When it came back there's the Light above you right now. See?
L-91 Now, if that's right raise up your hand, if you wasn't praying. There you are. All right. Now, you can go and receive your healing. You're... You touched Something. You never touched me. I don't know you, never seen you. You touched Something. What was it? The high priest, Christ Jesus, Who can be touched by the feeling of our infirmity. If thou canst believe... Have faith.
Let the lady stay there just a minute, turn around. Look this way, lady. You don't have to come up here. Do you believe with all your heart? But you're experiencing trouble. Don't you believe that God will make you well and cure those hands and make you completely well...?... You believe He will do it? I'm want to lay hands on the lady...?...
L-92 God, as this woman is in a dying condition, Thou alone can save her, Lord. I pray that You'll grant it. May it be so now, that nothing else will be done but...?... May her faith raise up quickly and catch the hand of Christ, and may she...?... unto a higher heights, that she'll go from here rejoicing, happy, praising God...?... well in Jesus Christ's Name. Amen. Don't doubt, sister. May your strength mount up now, go and be made well and healed with all your heart; may God grant it to you.
You believe God would heal you of the same thing and make you well? That's a horrible thing, isn't it? But Christ, the Son of God can heal and make well. Come here and let me pray for you.
Heavenly Father, seeing this man right under the shadows of death, I pray that You'll be merciful to him and make him well and heal him; for I ask it in Jesus Christ's Name and for His glory. Amen.
Now, sir, stop all your habits. See? 'Cause that's what a hindering it now. Don't smoke and things like that. Go on and live for the Lord. And God will make you well. Go believing. Now, have faith in God.
L-93 All right. You think God will heal that bowel trouble for you, lady, and make you well? You believe it? All right. If you believe it with all your heart, won't bother you no more. You touched Something, didn't you, sister? You touched Christ. Amen.
Now, I challenge your faith to believe. I just ask you in Christ's Name to believe it (See?) and see what will take place, if you can believe it. I believe that every one of you can be healed right now.
L-94 See, that's what--that's what alarms me. See? This is what gets me. See? When I can see the Lord Jesus with His blessings come right down, and me take it page by page by the Bible, saying, "This is what He did. Here's what He promised. Read it yourself. This is what He said He'd do when He come. This is just exactly what He... You read it right through."
I challenge you then, and say, "Believe it." He will come right down and do the same thing that He did then, proved it right straight back over, and yet you walk out just the same as you walked in. Can you see that America is finished? The Spirit has gone from the nation, till the only thing's left is just a little bit of emotion. That's right.
Don't the Bible say that this will be the Laodicean age. What was the Laodicean age? A lukewarm church, just enough to get--be a little emotional, and that's about all there is to it. (You see?), dancing while the music's a playing and--and...?... it is, drop down. See? Oh, we ought to be on fire, our hearts a burning. Christ is coming.
L-95 What has the devil done to us? He just moves you down to a place until you just seem like, "Well, it's all... Well, bless God, here I am." See, that's the trouble of it, friends. Please believe Him. Have faith in Him. Believe it with all your heart, and say, "Yes, Lord, I receive it. I accept it."
If the little bitty things right in this meeting would've took place in Africa tonight, you know what would've took place? There wouldn't be a feeble one among us. That's right. A Hottentot, he don't know which is right and left hand... That's right.
I offered one prayer, and Dr. F. F. Bosworth estimated and counted as it went through twenty-five thousand healings after three people had been on the platform. Seven big truck loads of crutches and wheelchairs and things was took off of the ground immediately after prayer was made: seven big cattle truck fulls of clubs and stretchers and things.
L-96 And you colored people that's been here, that was your people. That was your people in Africa who doesn't have the things that you have. They don't even have clothes to wear. And I can't understand how that they think that civilization brings Christ. You got it mistaken. Christ brings civilization. And these civilization that we have today is not Christ controlled.
Let me ask you something. Women each year are taking more clothes off each year, till you get down till it's a horrible thing to see young and old on the street. And you go to church and call yourself, some of you, sanctified people, and with the Holy Spirit, church members, supposed to be elect. And each year you take off your clothes, ladies.
L-97 And when them raw heathens with not nothing on, a belt, no clothes up in this way at all. And as soon as they was converted doubled their arms like this to walk out. If Christ to a heathen who didn't know any different, will bring that condemnation to let them know they're naked, what about people who's supposed to know Him, and civilized? Something's wrong somewhere. And I'm sure it's not with Christ. It's our modern civilization.
You see, right now when Christ doing what He... I challenge anybody to prove that's not the Bible, and that isn't Christ. You can't do it. It is Christ. Then if He's present, what's the matter with us? We should be a rejoicing and thanking Him and accepting our healing and saying, "Yes, Lord, I reconsecrate my life to You. I--I want to love You. I want to do everything I can."
L-98 It ought not to come to where a minister has to tell you to do that. It ought to be coming from your heart; not through a psychological, intellectual conception, but through a heartfelt expression to Christ. Amen.
I guess this is the man. I don't know you, sir. We're strangers to each other. If the Lord Jesus will reveal to this man... Here's a--a Nathanael now, a man standing here, a Nathanael. If the Lord Jesus will reveal this man's trouble, would you be willing to accept Jesus as your Healer?
Now, don't pinch your flesh, but pinch your soul with the Word. "Wake me up, Lord. Open my eyes. What's the matter with me? Am I missing this? What's that preacher trying to get to me?" I'm trying to get this. That's it.
You--you--you say, "Well, Brother Branham, I belonged to church for years." But you'll die in your sins. See? What is sin? Unbelief. See, if a--a quickly you receive it and accept Him and praise Him and say, "Thank You, Lord, let it be done." Walk right out of the building tonight perfectly well. If you're not, you're as good as well if you've accepted your healing in the seed form, by the Word. See? That's what...
L-99 I'm afraid that these big cities needs a lot of teaching. I'm sure they just worked up on emotions and so forth, so they need real Scriptural teachings, how to receive it. One of these days, God willing, before the end comes, I want Him to let me get a great big place here somewhere where I can stay for a couple, three months, or a couple, three, four, five weeks or something, so we can just stay right into it and just stay with the Word. [Audience responds--Ed.] Thank you. God, grant it.
Now, this man setting here. If the Lord Jesus will grant this to this man... Are we strangers to each other, sir? We are. We're--we're strangers. If the Lord Jesus will show this man, show to us what he's there praying for, how many in here say, "I'll accept it right then. I--I--I'm right now going to open my heart and turn my face right towards Christ." May the Lord grant it.
Got trouble in his neck. Is that right, sir? Raise your hand. See? Now, that can't be guessing. That's the truth. That's got to be true. He's the judge. Now, how did I know it? I saw him. What did Jesus say to Philip? "I saw you. Thou art an Israelite in whom there is no guile."
Said, "How You know me?"
Said, "I saw you when you was under the tree." [John 1:47]
L-100 Let's talk to the man just a little longer. Will that satisfy you if the Lord will tell something else to him? Let him be the judge. I'm only just looking, sir, to see what would take place. Yes, you have other troubles. Right. It's trouble with somebody else. It's your brother. And your brother's at home with a nervous breakdown. You believe?
Not only that, but I see some sort of a institution appear here. It's your mother. She's in a mental institution. Do you believe? Now, put your hands on each other. Lay your hands, while you got your hands up like that, you raise your hands to Christ. The Lord bless you, my brother.
Father God, give him the desires of his heart. May he go tonight and receive everything that he's asked for, in Jesus' Name I ask it. Amen. God bless you. Now, go...?...
Now, to you people here, God has promised these things. I am--I'm here to help you, friends. Why did I leave my home, my little children? Why would I come over here just at Christmas time when I'm gone all the year? Why would I come here for this service? I feel that maybe the Lord would help me here to help you. See? And that's what I'm here for. See?
L-101 No matter if you're a little bitty group. You say, "Brother Branham, you say you preached?" Yes, to a half a million at a time. See? That's true. Tens of thousands... Don't make any difference if there's only three of you. It's where God can use or do something.
Now, this is your visitation, believing that His servant is your brother. Now, if you have need of anything right now, while His Presence is here... just weakening... You could understand if the Son of God saw one vision, He said, "I... Strength went out of Me," what would me a sinner saved by grace, what would it do to me? Certainly. And it's just day in and out, because He promised, "More than this shall you do, for I go to the Father."
Now, believe Him with all your heart, and you'll receive it. Now, you sick people, all that's sick raise up your hand, all that's been sick. Now, you setting by them, lay your hands over one another, the sick and the needy there. And let's pray together now for Father to heal. Now, just believe it with all your heart. [Mark 5:30], [John 14:12]
L-102 There's a lady that... Right there, lady, setting, the elderly lady right back there with her hands up... Yes. Put your hands on her there if you will. And over here there's some people too with their hands up. Lay your hands on each other.
Now, young and old, while your heads are bowed just a moment. I wonder if there'd be a sinner here that would raise up your hand, or stand up to your feet, a sinner would say, "I now want to accept Christ while I'm in His Presence. I've always wanted to do this, but tonight I now believe with all my heart that He's here, and I want to accept Him as my personal Saviour."
Would you stand to your feet, a sinner that's never accepted Him before and you... A sinner is an unbeliever, of course. And now you... You may be a church member, but you'd still be a sinner if you disbelieve. See? Now, I don't mean intellectually believe; I mean from your heart believe. See? And if you are, would you stand?
L-103 I suppose there's not one, for that I'm thankful for. I believe you'd be honest and do it. Now, let us pray, all together, all you people who know how to pray, you pray with me now.
Heavenly Father, we now come and bring this people to Thee in the Name of Thy Son, the Lord Jesus. We come because that we have been bidden to come. And now, in His Presence as we stand waiting for the Holy Spirit to take the Word and plant this Word right down in their heart... You're here, Lord, Your great Spirit just a moving over the audience. Now, heal each one.
L-104 And I say to Satan who's bound these people with sickness, do you not understand, Satan, that you've lost the battle? Jesus the Son of God is present. We charge you by a commission of the Holy Spirit, that you leave every person in here. Come out, Satan. In Jesus Christ's Name go from this audience, and these people might go home free, and go eat their meals, and enjoy health again. For Jesus Christ promised it. And we now take the initiative; by faith we believe it, in Jesus Christ's Name. Amen.

57-1229 - Branham Tabernacle, Jeffersonville, IN,
L-46 Now, let the lady... She's here; she's got her head bowed; her eyes are closed; she's in prayer. I want you to pray for whatever you're wanting, and the Lord reveal it, and you be the judge. The woman, if the audience can still hear my voice, she is a suffering from a tremendous nervous condition. And I see a doctor doing something; he's putting a--a thing around her arm. And he says she's got high blood pressure. That's right. Isn't that right, lady?
Now, Something... Did you hear that voice? That wasn't me. I had nothing to do with that. Now, more I'd talk to her, more would happen. Just watch, and we'll talk to her again. I don't know what He said was wrong with her, if--what it was, it'll be on the tapes back there. You see? But whatever it was, it's right. Now, let's just look to her again.
Yes, I see her now in a nervous condition and something wrong with her blood, and she's not from this city; she is from Louisville. And she has been recently in a hospital, and it was for pneumonia. And her doctor tells her she's got a back set of it and must go back again to the hospital. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD. That's right, is it? But you don't have to go back, lady; your faith has made you well. You're--you're healed now, in the Name of the Lord Jesus. Amen. Now, go and be well. The Lord bless you.
Did I have one thing to do with that? Not a thing.
L-47 Now, here stands a lady that I've never seen in my life. I suppose we're strangers to each other, are we? You saw me, but I probably never saw you. You was probably in some meetings or somewhere. Now, if the Lord Jesus will let me know what you're here for, you'd know then, me not knowing you, that's there's some way I have of knowing. You'd have to know it come through supernatural. Then what would you think it would be? The same thing the Bible said, that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever? Would you believe that audience?
Here's my hand, as far as I know I never seen this woman in my life. See? And she's seen me, but I don't know what you're here about. I don't know nothing about it. I--I--I just don't know. But God does. Now, if the Lord will reveal it, amen. That's all He could do if He stood here. If it's for healing or anything else, He just wants you to believe it; that's all. This is to manifest that His Word is true.
Something happened in the audience then. Just have faith. Now, it seems that there... I... If you could see between me and the woman... You're suffering with a weakness. You have real weak spells (That's right.), just tremendous weakness, nervous, weak. But that's not your reason you're here. You're here for somebody else, and that's a man. It's your husband. He couldn't come because he's got a severe heart trouble and nervousness. And you're not from this city; you're from a place called Columbia, Columbia, Kentucky. Your name is Lotti Goodin. Your husband's named Elmer. Go home and find it as you have believed, and may God grant it to you, in the Name of the Lord Jesus. Just believe; have faith. Don't doubt now; just believe. [Hebrews 13:8]
L-48 I suppose we're strangers to each other, sir. Now, here is two men, just like Philip went and found Nathanael and brought him to the Lord. I don't know you, and you don't know me; but God knows us both. You're aware that something's going on right now. See? Standing before a man wouldn't make you feel like that, that humble sweet feeling. If you could just see a Light that's moving and settling between me and the man...
Now, he leaves from me, and he's not here for himself; he's here for somebody else. That's a relative, a nephew. And he's in the armed forces, in the navy, but he's not far from here. He's near a place where there's a lot of military stuff; it's a hospital, and it's Fort Knox. And he's blind, caused from a--a gunshot; and the doctor says there's no hope for him. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD. Do you believe? Then may it be according to your faith, my brother, and receive in the Name of our Lord Jesus. Amen. Do you believe? God bless you, my dear brother.
L-49 The next person. How do you do? [Blank.spot.on.tape--Ed.]
How lovely our blessed Saviour is, how--how omnipresent. How that the same Jesus that stood at Galilee... Just a moment. Was that man there at the platform just now? Which one of the men was it? That man there? All right, you may be seated.
It's the lady right here on the end with the red hat on. Yes, you're praying for a friend that's an alcoholic. That's right. All right, if you can believe, you can receive. Amen.
L-50 All right, will you believe? I don't know you; I've never seen you in my life. We're strangers to each other. But if the Lord God of heaven will manifest Hisself in His power and reveal that He is the same yesterday, today, and forever, will you believe Him? Let's see; is this three people or how... There's been more than that through, hasn't there? Three is a confirmation, of course; but whatever it is...
You are here for someone else; that is your main desire. And that's for a man, and that man is your son, and he has heart trouble. And he's had some kind of a something happen to him, it's a stroke, and it's partially paralyzed him. And you also are sick. You have colitis; it's a bowel condition. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD. And another thing, I see a messenger going from place to place... No. It was someone come here to the Tabernacle some time ago and requested a prayer for you and the Lord healed you. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD. If that's right, raise your hands. You believe you get what you ask for? Then may it be unto you, my sister, as the Lord Jesus has provided. Amen. [Hebrews 13:8]
L-51 How do you do? Is everybody believing? You believe with all your heart? Now, have faith. What is it? I just got to talk here, just a second if you will, 'cause it--I got more to get to, and I just want to rest just a moment. You don't realize what that does to you; it's worse than praying... Sure, how many remembers the great prophet Daniel saw one vision and was troubled at his head for many days? You remember? Sure. See? It's only His grace.
Now, you out there that's not in the prayer line, just start looking this way. I... You say, "Brother Branham, would that do any good?" Sure.
Just ask the Lord Jesus, say, "Blessed Father, let me touch Your garment. And the only way I know that You touched me, or heard me, that be if You'll speak through that man's lips and tell me what I'm asking for, like up there on the platform. I believe You." You without a prayer cards now, pray and believe it that way. Don't doubt; just have faith.
L-52 Now, is this the patient, Brother Neville? This is. I didn't mean to let you stand there. But it's... You can imagine what takes place. Are we strangers to each other? We are. Now, let this be settled. This woman is a stranger to me. I don't know her. I've never seen her in my life. And I... This is our first time meeting (That's right.), first time we've ever laid eyes on each other. And she's just a woman that would come up here at the platform. Someone give her a prayer card, and she just come up here at the platform; that's all I know about her.
But the Lord Jesus can reveal it, and if He can reveal it, then He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. That's exactly what He promised to do. And if that promise is fulfilled, He will fulfill every promise that He made. And He promised to heal you if you'd believe it. Do you see what I mean now? It can't fail. It's got to be so. Oh, blessed be His Name. He just can't fail.
If the Lord Jesus will let me know what has been in your life, He surely will know what will be in your life. You be the judge of that. How many would say, "I'll believe with all my heart if that woman will hold her hands, both of you, and say you've never met before and the Lord Jesus will reveal it. I'll believe." With--with all your heart, will you do it? God don't want us to be slothful; He wants us to have faith. Here we are before the pulpit, the Bible laying here, both of us; here we stand.
L-53 The lady is suffering with an extreme nervous condition. That's your trouble. But what you think it is, is something in your stomach that's giving you gas on your stomach. That's nerves that's doing that. That's right. And you have something wrong with your neck and in your shoulders, because you go to church and you are a Christian, and you're a pianist in your church. And when you're playing the piano, that suffering hurts you, when you're playing the piano. That's THUS SAITH THE SPIRIT. That's true. And you're not from this city. But you're from a city at the river, and it's not Louisville; it's Cincinnati. Cincinnati, Ohio. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD.
Can you see that line? Faith struck just then, 'cause it... That young fellow setting right yonder, kinda wavy hair, he's something connected with you. That's true, young man. Your faith touched Something. You're suffering with a hernia. That's right. And you're also from Cincinnati; that's true. You believe?
L-54 A little lady shrugged her shoulders, setting right here with a pink hat on, a shawl around her. She's got trouble with her eyes. That's right. And she's from Cincinnati. That's right. And let me te... You believe me to be God's prophet? You do? You're praying for a husband that's beginning to drink. He used to go to church and be a Christian, but he's backslid and drinking now. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD. That's right. Raise up your hand if that's right so... All right.
L-55 That little lady setting next to you there, is suffering with a nervous condition. She also comes from up there. But the thing that you need worse than ever; you go to church, but you haven't yet become a real Christian. That's right. Will you accept Him now as your personal Saviour, being that He's there? If you do wave your hand to Him, "I accept Him." God bless you; your sins are forgiven. You go in peace, and your nervousness is gone. Amen. Go home and be happy, in the Name of the Lord.
L-56 Do you believe? "All things are possible to them that believe." Now, I feel the vibration back there, not a vibration, but a spirit that says I'm reading their mind. I'm not doing it. You be careful; that'll come to you. Here this man here, put your hand on mine, sir. I won't even be looking at you. If the Lord Jesus will reveal to me what's your trouble, will you accept your healing, or whatever you need? Will you do it? This man here. You will? Heart trouble. Now, you go and be healed. The Lord Jesus make you well. If you believe with all your heart, you may go and be well. [Mark 9:23]
L-57 Now, this lady here. The woman has a spirit of death on her, for she's got cancer. You believe the Lord will heal you, sister?
O dear God, Who made the heavens and earth, this poor little woman has been caught into the clutches of the devil; a dark shadow hangs near her. But we challenge this demon; in the Name of the Lord Jesus come out from the woman, and may she go and be well through Jesus Christ's Name. Amen.
The Lord bless you, sister; go, and don't doubt for nothing.
"If thou canst believe..." Are you believing? Just have faith. Bible said, "If thou canst believe, all things are possible." But it's the only way it can be done. [Mark 9:23]
L-58 We are strangers to each other, sir, but the Lord knows both of us. If He will reveal to me what you're here for, will you receive it? You have a stomach trouble. And another thing, you're a sinner; you haven't accepted the Lord as your Saviour. Will you accept Him as your Saviour? You raise your hands to Him, accept Him as your Saviour, and I declare you in the Name of Christ, healed of your stomach troubles. Go and sin no more. Amen.
L-59 Be merciful, the living God. You believe God healed you of that heart trouble? Then go out there and be made whole, in the Name of the Lord Jesus.
Does the little lady setting here with a black coat on, glasses, you have a prayer card, lady? You don't? You got something wrong with your ears you want me to pray for, and you got bowel trouble also. Is that right? All right, it's over now. Go, believe.
L-60 "If thou canst believe..." You want prayer for somebody, don't you? A sister in a institution.
O eternal God, send Thy blessing to this person and may they be healed. Grant it, O Lord, for we ask it in Jesus Name. Amen.
Find it as you have believed, my brother. Don't doubt.
"If thou canst believe..." Are you believing? Oh, what a glorious time it could be for all, if you would... [Mark 9:23]
L-61 There seems to be a Light around the woman that's kinda heavy set, looking at me, right back here. It's a lady inside. It moves from her because this lady has just been healed. But the next lady has something, kind of a blood pressure, low blood pressure. Do you believe the Lord would make you whole, lady? "If thou canst believe, all things are possible." Do you believe it, lady, that's looking around there, believing with... You believe it with all your heart? Yes. You accept it? All right, you can go and be made well in the Name of the Lord Jesus.
L-62 The man setting right here praying. You want me to tell you what you're saying? "Lord, heal me of that sinus." All right, He does it, in the Name of the Lord Jesus. "If thou canst believe..."
You believe God take the heart trouble away from you, and you go be well?
O Lord, send Thy mercies and power and bless this poor man, Lord, and make him well through Jesus Christ's Name I ask it. Amen.
Believe it now... Don't doubt; all things are possible.
L-63 Arthritis is not a bad thing for God to heal. You believe that He will do it?
O Lord, I pray that in the Name of Jesus that You'll send Your Spirit upon this dear woman and make her completely whole. And may she go to her home rejoicing and be made well, not doubting one bit but believing that it's taken place right now, and she shall have what she has believed. We ask it in Jesus' Name. Amen.
Do you believe with all your heart? You can have what you ask for then.
L-64 Way back yonder in the corner, there is the Angel of the Lord standing back there, a Light.. If you can believe, you there about three rows this side of the back. Ah, best I can see from here it's about the second person in, that's a praying back there that's got intestinal trouble. Do you believe that God will heal you? All right you can have what you ask for. Lay your hands on that man next to you there, for he is praying with a tonsil condition. If you will believe with all your heart, you can have what you ask for. Amen.
L-65 Are you believing? The Lord Jesus right at His--this time can make every one of you perfectly whole if you can believe it. Do you believe it? Then lay your hands on each other just a minute and I will show you the glory of the Lord.
Now, either Brother Wood or Billy, one, is touching me in the back, which I know it's just about time that... They won't let me stand much longer, 'cause my strength is gone.
L-66 I said it just a little while ago: If God would come and would manifest Himself, if He would prove by an experience that He is the Lord God, that He is the same yesterday, today, and forever, then you would not have any reason to doubt. Neither could in my message tonight, any of those who's once seen God's Presence... How could Philip doubt? How could Nathanael doubt? How could the woman with the blood issue? She couldn't doubt; she'd touched Him, and He had revealed to her what she touched for. [Hebrews 13:8]
L-67 Don't look at the size of the church or what it looks like. Don't look at the little congregation, because we're all common people; but think of the blessed Lord Whose Presence is here, Who shows Himself alive. You believe Him right now and you can have anything that you ask for and believe.
Now, He can heal right here just the same. His Presence... You're already healed. There's only one thing keeping you from receiving it; that's unbelief. Get rid of that right now. Don't disbelieve it any longer; discard it and accept the Lord Jesus as your Healer. Watch what takes place. You go out of this building rejoicing, because you're right now in the Presence of the Lord Jesus. Not because you're in this tabernacle, but because that He has come and visit us. Not because I'm the preacher, or this--or my Brother Neville, or any of these other Christians; not our presence, but it's His Presence. It's infallible. It's the Bible. It's the truth. Blessed be His Name.
L-68 In the spite of Him saying in our own country, among our own people, grace has overrode it tonight because of the nearness of time. The end is at hand. He promised that when these things begin to take place that the end time was at hand. You believe it now while I pray. The Bible said, "The effectual fervent prayer availeth much." So let us pray, as you pray for each other, as you lay your hands on each other. [James 5:16]
L-69 Lord, Thou has been a hiding Place in every generation. Thou has been our refuge. Long have we waited upon Thee. Long has this Protestant church longed to see the day when it could stand to its feet. From the little group that's been pushed off to one side because they wouldn't tallyate with the unbelief of the unbelievers who's yoked themselves together... And they made their challenge that that little fire that begin to fall a few years ago will finally go out. But, oh, we're so glad for our great Captain David, Who stands in our midst tonight, and challenges the enemy.
O Lord God, we would pray this prayer of faith for each and every person here. Let them know at this very moment that Your great Presence is here to sweep over this entire audience and heal every person. O great Holy Spirit, every heart may be thrilled at this moment as He baptizes them into the great Presence of the Holy Ghost.
O Satan, you are defeated, come out of this place and get from the people. In the Name of Jesus Christ may every person be healed. O eternal and blessed God, grant these things through Jesus Christ's Name.
L-70 Every person that believes that you are healed, stand to your feet and give God the praise. Thank you, and the Lord God bless you. Brother Neville.
