58-0500 - Unknown, New England Area (Paragraphs: 57 - 61)
L-58 There was a woman touched His garment. She went out in the audience. And Jesus turned, said, "Who touched Me?" This Holy Spirit, that I speak of, is the same today, living in His Church, then He has to act the same. He's the Holy Spirit.
You that's sick now, pray. Tomorrow night will be the regular healing line; tonight is too.
Here. Yes, sir. Stand there just a minute, you that's come here. I don't know you. 'Course you haven't got a prayer card; man don't know what one is. You believe me to be His servant? If Christ will reveal to me what's your trouble, will you accept it, believe you'll be healed, and whatever you're needing?
And you know, setting right there looking at me, something's going on right now. If that's right, raise up your hand. I never seen you in my life. This is probably our first time ever meeting. But if you'll believe with all your heart, the heart trouble's left you. You had heart trouble, didn't you? If that's right, wave your hand like this. Go back and set down. [Mark 5:27]
L-59 By the way, that man setting next to you there, had heart trouble too, right next to you. That's right. You couldn't hide your life from me, if you had to. But when I told that man, it made you alarmed, then you believed? That's right. Now, you go and be healed. Jesus Christ makes you well. If that's right, stand up on your feet. There you are...?...
I challenge you to believe it. Hallelujah. The old mother eagle's calling to you.
Some of you believe. Some of you believe. By faith, believe. And sit--set reverent. Don't move around. Somewhere in the audience... The little fellow...?... you got heart trouble too; had an awful spell today...?... over another. But it's heart trouble, sir, weakness, nervous condition. Forget it. Go home; be well.
You come a long ways, and was disappointed on your way road coming here. Something tore up. It'll be all right. Don't worry. You'll be right. I don't know you. God does.
L-60 What about this young lady setting here, looking at me so sincerely? Do you believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God? Do you believe I'm His--His servant? You believe this Spirit here, is His Spirit working through me... You're needing prayer, aren't you? If I'd tell by--by God's Spirit, just like the woman touched His garment, you touched Him too. I never seen you in my life, did I? Don't know nothing about you. But you got spinal trouble. That's right. You did have; you don't have now. Go home and be well. Amen.
Do you believe?
L-61 What about some of you over in this way? Somebody over here go to believing. You believe with all your heart? What about you, lady, setting there? Did you put up your hand you need healing? You setting there on the end, I don't know you, never seen you in my life, as far as I know of. You might've seen me, but I don't know you. If God will explain to me, will let me know that you touched His garment... Something happened. I wouldn't speak to you unless that Angel standing right there over you, that Light. Did you ever see the picture of It? Well, That's exactly what's making you feel the way are. He's right over you. I never seen you in my life. That's right. If it is, raise up your hand, that I'm a stranger to you. []...?...
You got a strangling spirit, which is a goiter inside your neck. You're not from this country. You come from a place that's below here. You come from Orlando, Florida. That's exactly right, THUS SAITH THE LORD.
Do you believe? Oh, His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.
All that believe Him, stand on your feet and give Him praise and glory. Worship Him. This is your hour of worship. May the Lord God grant it.

58-0501 - Manhattan Center, New York, NY (Paragraphs: 45 - 62)
L-46 Now, everyone just as reverent. And as you people come into the line, just be reverent. All of you in the line, are you strangers? Or, I don't know what you are, or who you are, or any... Raise your hands if you are, you that's standing in the line, put up your hands, up and down like that, just so that you'll know...?
Here's a drama. It's not a show by no means. God don't have to do this, but He promised He would do it. He didn't have to heal when Jesus come, but He promised He would do it that it might be fulfilled.
Now, here is a man and a woman meeting for their first time in life like it was in Saint John 4. I do not know her. She does not know me. We're just standing here. But if the Lord God will tell me something as I have said to you, you have promised and so has the audience to believe that He is risen from the dead and is the same yesterday, today, and forever. [Hebrews 13:8]
L-47 If the audience still hears to my voice, I am very thankful to the Lord. The picture that you have of the Angel of the Lord, that Light stands right here between me and the woman.
The lady has been somewhere to an examination for a doctor. And the examination, the doctor has advised an operation. That's a tumor and the tumor is located in the stomach. It's enormous tumor. And she's up for an operation to take place this next month. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD. Do you believe? Are those things now true, lady? If they are, wave your hand to the audience.
Now, you say, "That could've been a guess." Let us speak to her just a little further. Maybe now, that the Holy Spirit is anoint...
L-48 How many have seen the picture of the Angel of the Lord, that picture that's hanging yonder in Washington, D. C.? They have it here in the book and also... That's what's taking place just now. See? It's the Pillar of Fire that led the children of Israel. Not me, no more than it was Moses. And when He was on earth, He said--He was manifested, this same Pillar of Fire, 'cause He said, "I--before Abraham was, I AM." Is that right? That was when He talked to Moses in the burning bush. He said, "I came from God, and I go to God." Is that right? Well, if He went back to where He was before He came flesh, He went back to the Pillar of Fire. Is that right?
When Paul met Him on the road to Damascus, what was He? Back to a Pillar of Fire, a Light that put Paul's eyes out in His Presence as He walked. It's Him.
Jesus said, "As the Father has sent Me, so send I you." The Father that sent Him, went with Him and was in Him. The Christ that sends His disciple goes with him and is in him. Not the disciples, but the Christ, "Not me, but My Father that dwelleth in Me." He said. [John 8:58], [John 13:3], [Acts 22:6], [John 20:21], [John 14:10]
L-49 Let's see now, whatever it was, I don't know what was said 'cause it's a--it's a vision. The recording boys here have it, what was said. Test it. See if it's true. Now, ever what it was was true, is that right, lady? Now, if you'll just be reverent a moment, let's see if He would tell us something, so it'd take the scare from the people (You see?) or the thoughts.
Yes, I see a doctor looking at the woman. That's right. I see a man appear. It's a man that this woman has on her heart to pray for. And she's been praying for this man. And this man suffers with something that's crippling. It--it's arthritis. The man has arthritis. That is right. And that man, if he's standing in now by vision in the Presence, he has a burden on his heart and that's for the salvation of his daughter. It's exactly right, THUS SAITH THE LORD.
Do you believe? As you have believed, so will it be to you. God bless you. Go and God's peace rest on you. Does the audience believe? Have faith now in God. Just be real reverent for a few moments.
L-50 How do you do lady? I suppose our first time meeting, but God knows us both. He knows all about us. Now, be just reverent as you can, friend. Something's happened in the audience. I just see It freely move. Each one of you just--each one of you's a being. Now, you say, "Brother Branham, that's psychology." If it is, Jesus used it when He put them all out of the house and He raised Jairus' daughter. When He took the men outside the multitude. No, you're spirits, as same as mortals. Just be real reverent now.
I seen an operation. Someone with an operation. Where is the lady that's healed just a few moments ago? Was it... Is she in the audience? Where did she go to? Was there something that taken place about her? Oh, the--the... Oh, it was a lady there... No, it isn't her. No. The Lord God will reveal it. We shall never be defeated. No matter what takes place, we will never be defeated.
Here's the lady setting right over here. She's had an operation. Setting there on the end of the row, she's had an operation, and the sickness keeps pulling out of her operation. That was you, wasn't it? All right. Go on your road. It's going to stop now. You'll be well. Your faith made you whole...?...
L-51 Just love Him now, with all your heart, 'cause He's sweet and humble and the Holy Spirit is very timid. Just love Him and believe with all your heart now. You can receive whatever you ask for, what you believe, and you can receive it.
The lady standing before me... Of course, not knowing you, as different ages and born probably miles apart and years apart, our first time meeting, I suppose. I have no idea who you are or what you are, but if God will reveal to me now, being it's already struck the audience, the people has faith now, moving. I don't know how far down the line we will come.
But if God will strike or move and will reveal to me something that you are here for, or something that you have done, or some manner, just like I've been preaching about, would you believe that He would give you what you ask for? You would believe it?
The lady, trouble is in your back and in her spine. She has a terrible back and spine condition. She fell and got hurt. That's been two or three months ago you did this. And you're here for me to ask God to heal you. You're not from this city. You're from another city called Brooklyn. Now, return back, for you're going to get well. Jesus Christ will make you well. The thing is cursed; it's gone. You'll be well. God bless you, lady. If thou canst believe now, all things are possible. [Mark 9:23]
L-52 If the Lord God will tell me what you are here for, what's wrong with you, or something in that manner, you will believe on the Lord Jesus? Your main thing here for, is for somebody else. You have already accepted your healing from some time, for a place that runs. But you are here for someone else, a friend of yours which has a stroke. That's right. Go believe it, and they'll come out of it. Believe it with all your heart. All right. Have faith in God. Hast thou believed on the Lord Jesus as yet? Just have faith now. Don't doubt.
We are strangers to each other, I suppose, sister dear? If thou canst believe...
The lady setting here, right here, right down in front of me there looking at me, suffering with cancer, do you believe the Lord Jesus is going to heal you and make you well of this cancer? You believe He will do it? You can have what you've said then. God bless you, lady. There was a dark shadow over you, it's passed away now. Just have faith in God. [Mark 9:23]
L-53 The little lady setting back there with the little white jacket or thing on, you can't sleep at night. Do you believe the Lord Jesus is going to give you sleep from now on? That you might know I was His prophet, or His servant, that's your husband setting by you. Do you believe that God can heal him? If God will reveal to me what his trouble is, will you believe it? Then the arthritis will go from you, sir. You can go home now, and be well, and be a happy family. What did they touch? They never touched me. They're twenty yards from me. I don't know them. If I do not know you sir, wave your hand like this that--that I don't know you. I do not know you. Never seen them in my life, but they touched something. They touched the High Priest that can be feel then He turns around and acts just like He did yesterday, He does today, and will be forever. Just believe Him. Don't doubt Him. Believe Him with all your heart, and God shall make it move unto you--your desire.
L-54 You believe me to be His servant? Now, the reason I say that, as Peter and John passed through the gate called Beautiful, they said, "Look on us." See, it was to catch their attention. Jesus said to the woman at the well, "Bring Me a drink." It's something that you say to a person to catch their attention, 'cause you are a human being. And you have a soul in which Christ died for. If Christ will reveal to me what your trouble is, or something about you that you know that I know not, or act as He did the days gone by, will you accept Him as you're Healer? You will? May the Lord grant it.
Just be real patient. Just keep believing. See? You're touching. I wished I could explain it. There's no way to do it; you can't explain God; you've got to believe God.
I see you standing by a stairway or something. Oh, you've gotten hurt on a stairway sometime ago. And it ruptured the stomach and the intestinal track. I see you go to a hospital twice: You've had two times of surgery, and it hasn't done you any good.
You believe It stands with me now though? You know...?... You know standing in the presence of a man like me wouldn't make you feel that way. That Angel of the Lord is around you, lady. That you might know I'm His servant, Mrs. Eckerd, you're from Jersey City. Return home, 'cause you're going to get well. Amen. Go home, may you believe with all your heart. God bless you, sister dear.
Just have faith in God. Don't doubt. Believe with all your heart, and you can receive what you ask for. How many out there is believing that? Don't move, please. Just set real still. Be real reverent. [Acts 3:2-4]
L-55 Now, you're in the Presence of Jehovah, not your brother. I haven't even got a grammar school education. I don't know the first thing of--of... I might say this: I don't know the Book too well, but I know the Author of It. I--I--that's... And you might disagree with me in my teachings, but when God confirms it, and I read it out of the Bible, that makes it so, for God testifies of the truth.
If thou canst believe all things are possible. The little lady there with her hand up over her mouth, and suffering with those headaches, setting right back behind Mother Brown, there, do you believe that God's going to make you well? You do? You were praying about it, wasn't you? That you might know, the lady setting right on the end from you there. She's got trouble in your arms. She's suffering with a arm trouble. That's right, isn't it, lady? It's all gone now. Uh-huh. See that? See? Your headaches are finished, too. That's... Raise your hands if that's so, dear heart. There you are. It's all over. What did you touch? You touched the High Priest that can be touched with the feeling of infirmity. That's exactly right. Don't fear. Don't be excited. Just have faith; don't doubt. Believe with all that's in you. Believe it with everything that's within you. Now, have faith. People are praying. [Mark 9:23], [Hebrews 4:15]
L-56 The little lady setting here with her head down, suffering with sinuitis trouble. You believe the Lord healed you, lady? The little lady setting there with the little pink looking dress on, you were praying, wasn't you? You were praying this prayer: Lord, let him speak to me. Is that right, raise up your hand? He knows your prayer. That's right.
What'd you think about it, setting next to her, with the white hat on? That thrilled you too, didn't it? It did? You believe He will heal that arthritis you have? You believe He'd make you well? Sure, well then you can have what you've ask for. Amen.
The lady next to her there, has that bladder trouble. Do you believe the Lord Jesus will make you well, lady? You accept it? Raise your hand if you do. All right, you can have what you've ask for. Oh, He's wonderful, isn't He? That's right.
L-57 Right behind the lady there is--a man got bronchial trouble. You believe God will heal that bronchial trouble and make you well? If you believe. The little lady with the white hair, kindly down... You believe He heals that bronchial trouble? All right, you can have what you ask for. I challenge you to believe Him here anywhere. Just believe Him.
The lady right behind there with her eyes up, praying, "Lord, I want to get rid of this arthritis." Is that right, lady, is that what you said? It's gone from you (Uh-huh, uh-huh.) if you can believe.
The lady setting next to you, with her hands over her mouth like this, she has sugar diabetes, and she's wanting to get rid of that. Is that right, lady? Wave your hand if that's right. All right. It's gone. If thou canst believe... Do you believe? Just have faith. Every one of you can be healed right now. Just have faith now. Have you got...
L-58 Here's a lady setting here. Let's--let's talk to the lady just a moment. See friends, I could not heal you. I have no--nothing to heal you with. I'm not a doctor. I don't know nothing about medicine. I'm just His servant, Christ's. And the only thing I could do... And--and far as healing, every one of you is already healed. It's just your faith to accept it. You see what I mean. It's your faith to accept such. Here's the lady standing before me... A...
Colored lady, do you believe that... Here we are. Here's a beautiful picture: white man and colored woman. Do you--this is a picture of the subject I had tonight, the woman at the well. We are strangers to each other. The Lord Jesus knows us both, doesn't He? He does. If the Lord Jesus shall reveal to me the secret of your heart, or something that you are here for, that you know I don't know, would you be willing to spread it among your people and everywhere else, that He still remains the same? That's what you want to do?
L-59 Now, here's a picture of Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever. I have never seen the woman in my life. God knows that. If I have, I didn't know her. We are strangers to one another, is that right? As a different race of people, both of us. I'm Anglo-Saxon and she's not, and here we are just exactly the same. Jesus let that woman know, there's no difference in the color or race of a person. We are all from the same tree, the same God, whether we are white, black, yellow, brown, whatever we are, we are of one people from one person, Adam. It's exactly right.
The countries we live in in changing our color, has nothing to do with our souls. We're all creatures of God. God made us the way we are, because He wanted us this a way. It's exactly right. [Hebrews 13:8]
L-60 The lady is a Mrs. Week. That's your name. You're from the city. Your house number is 555 Edgecombs Avenue. You are very nervous for one thing. But you have a great desire in your heart: you've been seeking the baptism of the Holy Ghost, and that's what you want is the baptism of the Holy Ghost. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD. Is that right? Go and receive it now. Christ will give It to you.
How many in here believes now, with all your heart? Do you believe me to be His servant? What about you with the crutches? You don't have to walk out with them if you'll just believe it? What about the wheelchairs, wherever they are? Do you believe with all your heart? Then I ask you to do one thing, to believe that the Presence of Christ is here, and that's what's bringing these things to pass. Healing--healing is something that's been done since Jesus died at Calvary. The lady setting there had TB. It's over, sister. You don't have to worry about it no more. That's right.
L-61 And you, setting on the edge of the seat there, and has got prostate trouble so bad...?... It's finished, sir. You have it no more. You can go home and be well. God bless you. I challenge you to believe Christ just now. I believe--I believe if you will do as I ask you... The Bible says this now, Christ promised this. And here, another thing He said in His last commission, "These signs shall follow them that believe: They shall lay their hands on the sick. They shall recover." How many believers is there in here? Raise your hand? Now, lay your hands on somebody near you. No matter what you want, lay your hands, everywhere, on each other. If Christ keeps this part of His Word, how much easier is it for Him to keep that part of His Word?
Now, the Bible said, "These signs shall follow them that believe. If they lay their hands on the sick..." Now, pray the way you would in your church. Pray for one another, while I pray for you here, and see what the Lord will do. Every one of you can be healed. [Mark 16:17-18]
L-62 Eternal God, Author of Life, Giver of every good gift, Blesser of men...?... we commit unto Thee, this audience of people, just now, that Thou will heal every person that's in Divine Presence. Grant, Almighty God, that their healing will now take place, as Satan has been exposed. His kingdom of darkness has been brought into the Light and been made manifested through resurrected Jesus Christ.
O Lord God, we now challenge the devil, upon his bluff, we're calling his hand. Satan, you've held these people as long as you can. They have their hands laid on one another as believers in the ever living God. I charge thee, Satan, through commission of the Angel of God, by the Bible through the Holy Ghost, that you come out of every person in here and let them go free from sin, from sickness, from chains, from diseases, from afflictions. In Jesus' Name come out of the people. Amen.
I believe that every one of you in here was healed by the power of the Almighty God. He is with you now. He's moving in the midst of you believers. If you're a sinner, stand to your feet and accept Christ as your Saviour. Wonderful. If you are sick, stand to your and accept Him as your Healer. Some hundred or more stood for salvation? Hundreds are standing for healing? You are healed in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen. "By His stripes...?... you free...

58-0503 - Weaver High School, Hartford, CT (Paragraphs: 71 - 89)
L-72 Now, let us pray, just a moment, and each of you put on your heart, and say, "Lord God, I'm now drawing a little line, and from this hour..." The reason I'm doing this, because this whole group come to Christ just a few moments ago. This is something new. But the whole group came to Christ, and I'm going to believe that God is going to help this group of people tonight to see that Christ is out there with you, that He is the High Priest that can be touched by the feeling of our infirmities. Upon that Scripture, you'll see it manifested.
L-73 Now, Lord, it's in Your hands. Now, we submit ourselves to Thee, all this group of believers, and Thy humble servant. I--I just submit myself to You, and this audience to You. These souls raised their hand and said they believe before they had even seen anything take place.
Lord, the Christ that we have been speaking of, and has give them the Word of His promise, that He would work in His church just as He did back there and would forever, let it be known that this is the end of Gentile age, and we are Your church, and You're working through us tonight. Give me faith, Lord; give them faith, and may Thy great Name be honored, for we ask it in Jesus' Name. Amen.
L-74 Now, let us just be real reverent, and no one going now, just be real reverent. Set still just a moment. And just--just like in your heart, you were saying, "Now, I know that the Scriptures are true, and I'm going to believe God tonight with all that's in me. I'm going to believe that God is going to speak to me tonight, and I'm going to touch His garment. And He, by my faith touching His garment... Lord, You use Brother Branham's voice to turn and tell me just like You did the woman at the well, just like that Christ did in--in His--His time here on earth, and I'll believe then that You're working through me, and through Brother Branham."
You just do that. See if He isn't the same. And if He is the same, and will prove that He is the same, will you all give Him praise and glory for His goodness? Now, just be reverent and pray.
I have no... And there's not a person before me, that I know. I do not see one. I believe this is the song leader, setting right here. Is that right? Are you the boy that leads, I met down in New York? And I believe that's Doctor Martin setting right there. Is that right? Well, the rest of our group is on the platform. [Hebrews 4:15]
L-75 How many out there knows that I do not know you, or know nothing about you? Raise up your hands to God, so that you can just see. All right.
Now, let His Spirit... Now, if He is the same, His Spirit working in us, which is the branches, then the great Vine is here, in the Spirit Vine. Then He begins to move through the outlets of our heart. Well, what do we do? Just yield ourself. Just like I said last night, "This microphone is a perfect mute, unless something is speaking through it." So will I be here. What do I know about you? I've never seen you. But if I be a perfect mute, until the Holy Spirit does something for you, and then comes here and speaks the thing through me. That's a gift of God that He promised. It's never been since the last apostle until this time. Search the history, theologians, and historians. Why? Because this is the end of the Gentile age. It'll go by; they'll never recognize it, only the ones who are supposed to.
L-76 Did you know they never knowed Elijah; they never knowed John; he's done gone. Jesus said, "That's the Elijah that was to come. They didn't know Jesus, till He was dead, buried, and rose again. They didn't know Saint Patrick; they call him a Catholic, but he was about as much as I am. They didn't him till after he was dead. Saint Francis of Assisi, a walking preacher with a Bible under his arm, not till after he was dead. Joan of Arc, they said she was a witch and burned her to a stake. Hundred or two years later, found out she was a saint. And 'course, they done penance, dig up the dead bodies and throw them in the river. And today, it's no less. It... God sends it anyhow; goes right over the people. He calls that what He has chosen. It's God in all.
L-77 I'm just waiting; I am perfectly helpless. God may not do it, but let us believe that He will, 'cause I don't know, I--this is something new. May He grant it. I just have to watch. We haven't the pictures, I don't think they're with Gene. None of the... []... pictures is hanging in Washington, DC by the FBI, the only Supernatural Being that was ever photographed in all the world, the Pillar of Fire that led the children of Israel.
How many ever seen the picture? Let's see your hands, all over the building, that's never seen that picture? Some of you. We'll have it soon, but not now. We're completely out. It's not mine; it belongs to the American Photographers Association, the Douglas Studios in Houston. They took it down there that night, when He stood right there 'fore thirty thousand people, and comes right into the meetings. Just believe with all your heart now.
L-78 What a solemn time. What could happen just now, the church in one accord. Now, just a moment. Here stands... I see a woman; she's setting back in the audience; she's looking at me now. She's wearing glasses, and got a little feather on the side of her hat. Are you praying for something, sister? The lady, right here, setting next to the man with the white shirt on. Yes. One that just turned and looked at the man with the white shirt on. You, are you praying for something? You wanting God to do something for you? You are. Have... You don't have a prayer card, do you? No. It's the lady behind you, there that I happened to speak to her. I wished... See? It's right over that lady. Look like you could see that Light, the emerald colored Light hanging right there by the lady. That's the Holy Spirit in the form of a Light.
Now, wait, critics, don't you think that isn't the Holy Spirit. What was It called Paul on the road to Damascus?
L-79 If the Lord God will tell me what's your trouble there, would you believe me to be His servant, the lady I'm speaking to there? You will? Well, if you believe God will heal that rupture for you, and make you well? If you do, stand up on your feet. Now, that's the lady that... Yes, that's it, you. You don't have a prayer card, but you were praying, and you have a rupture, or you had one. What did you touch? I've never seen you, never knowed, know about it, but God knows you. He knows your trouble. If that's true, what your trouble was, raise your hand, if that's right. Now, go and be well.
Do you believe He lives? Certainly, He does. He never fails. I challenge any of you to pray.
L-80 Here's a little girl, setting here. Little girl's looking down. Do you believe, little lady, on the Lord Jesus? Do you? Little green dress on, setting there. Yes, that's her. Do you believe the Lord Jesus? Got trouble with your back, haven't you? That's right. You have a prayer card? You don't? Okay, you don't need one. Let me tell you; you're back trouble's gone. That's your daddy setting next to you there. You believe me to be God's prophet? You do? If God will tell me what your trouble, will you believe me as His servant? You have a kidney trouble. If that's right, raise up your hand. All right. You don't have it now.
That's your son, setting there smiling. That's right. You believe? You believe with all your heart? You have trouble with your neck, haven't you? A broken neck. You also had rheumatic fever, didn't you? You don't have it now. Now, do you believe the Lord Jesus? Just have faith and believe.
L-81 I do not know the people. Anybody that's been called, if I don't know you, raise your hands up, the people that has been called, the Holy Spirit's called. Raise up your hands, if I'm strangers to you, ever who was talked to, raise up your hand.
Now, have faith; don't doubt; believe God. If thou canst believe.
Here sets a lady with her head bowed now, gray-headed. Do you believe me to be God's servant, lady? Setting there praying. She's still in prayer. You, you have need of anything from God? You have a strange feeling around you now, a real sweet humble feeling. Is that right? Raise up your hand. All right. That's the Holy Spirit. I don't know you. If that's right, raise your hand way up high. Do you believe the Lord God will answer prayer for you? You got a burden on your heart. That's right. And that burden is for your son. He has cerebral palsy. That is true. Do you believe with all your heart? Then receive what you ask for. As thou hast believed. [Mark 9:23]
L-82 Dr. Barton, was you talking to the woman something? Was she sick? All right, lady, look at me. All right. Look up here. If thou canst believe, all things are possible. She's in prayer for somebody else. Mary, that's her given name. She's praying for a daughter of hers, and that daughter has a mental break. That's what she's praying for. Happens to be you with your hands on her; you're her daughter too. That's right. Do you believe me to be God's servant? I don't know you, do I? If God will reveal to me what you're there for, or something to you, will you believe me as His servant? You suffer with arthritis. You do have. That's right. Your name is Mrs. Picket. That's right. You come from a place called West Hartford. That's right. Your house number is 167 North Main Street, Hartford, Connecticut. That's right. Believe now, and go home well. I challenge you.
This lady, setting next to you, is praying too there. When I said, "Arthritis," to you, she's setting there praying for her mother, who has arthritis. That's right, isn't it, lady? Raise up your hand, if that's right. All right. If you believe me, your mother will get well. [Mark 9:23]
L-83 Can't you believe? Anywhere, just have faith, don't doubt. Somebody over in this section, believe God.
Here. Looky here; there's the Light. See It? There's the Holy Spirit. You say, "Do you see that, Brother Branham?" Only thing I can tell; I see the Light that's science put on paper and said, "Psychology, the camera won't take it." It's hanging over a man right there.
He's got some kind of a little reddish looking sweater on. He's praying for some loved one. And that loved one is a woman. And it's his sister, and she's in a mental institution. That's right. I'm a stranger to you, am I? I am. All right. You believe with all your heart? By the way, that's your wife setting there next to you. She's in trouble too. She has a tumor, and she also has gland trouble. Her name is Ruth Edward. That's true. And you're from Brookfield, Massachusetts, both of you. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD. Go home, you're well now. Amen.
L-84 If thou canst believe. If that isn't the Bible of Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever, I don't know the Scriptures or neither do you. How great Thou art.
Just be reverent now. Something's happened, but I didn't see where it was. Do you believe Him with all of your heart? Oh, He is so real, friends. How many, with all your heart, believe that our Lord Jesus...? Now, you know that had to come through a Supernatural Power. I have no way of doing it. It's God; it's your own faith; you're doing it. That's you doing it; you're believing it. I could not say a thing, unless you are touching His garment. [Hebrews 13:8]
L-85 Here a few weeks ago, in Chicago, there was a colored lady setting out... This is on record, authentic, and she was praying for a loved one, down somewhere in Arkansas. And I said to her, "You've got a sclerosis of the liver, but you're praying for your sister, that's a maniac in an institution in Little Rock, Arkansas."
She said, "That's true, sir."
I said, "She's in a padded cell."
Said, "That's right."
"But," I said, "she's delivered, for she's just now come to herself."
And the next morning the ladies come in and let her out, give her a dismiss. And the following night she flew to--to--to Chicago, and had her dismissing card, and stood and testified, the following night. Certainly. That happens all the time. If thou canst believe. He's the same Jesus. Oh, how wonderful. [Mark 9:23]
L-86 The lady setting here playing--or praying, her head's bowed. She's setting right before me; she's got some flowers on her hat. Miss Rush, you I'm speaking to, if you'll just raise up your head a minute. That's you. Do you believe me to be His prophet or His servant? Yes. You believe with all your heart? You believe the Lord God can give you the things you desire? Well, God bless you. You were praying then, for it. Certainly, you were. You're trouble's in your throat. You got trouble in your throat, in your bowels, and in your spine. That's right. Correctly. You're not from this city; you're from Newport, Rhode Island. That's exactly right. Now, go back home; you're well. Jesus Christ makes you well.
Do you all believe with all your hearts? Raise up your hands and say, "I now believe, as the queen of Sheba, as she seen the gift of God work in Solomon; it settles it with me." All right. The Lord bless you.
L-87 Now, I'm going to ask you to do something for every one of you to be healed. This going on, it makes me weak, you see it, look at the perspiration from my hands and all, and now the whole crowd's just becoming like this. You're believing. How can you... If God has give me favor in your sight, believe me now, as His servant. I've told you from the Word, and He's confirmed that I tell the truth. And if I tell the truth on one thing, I tell it now. You're every one already healed, and been healed for nineteen hundred years. The Presence of Christ confirms the Word, and your every one healed. Do you believe it? If you do, the Bible said, "These signs shall follow them that believe. They shall lay their hands on the sick, and they shall recover." Lay your hands on one another and let's pray. I don't care what your trouble is; let's believe God. [Mark 16:17-18]
L-88 Heavenly Father, we bring to You this audience, and we snatch them right out of the hand of the devil. Satan, you are--you are defeated, and the Holy Ghost has exposed you, and declared that in this generation, of the wickedness of this nation, yet there is people, who's gathered here tonight, who believed on the Lord God. And they have seen His Presence, knowing that It could not be a man do that, that it is--it's a vindicated this Bible and the resurrection.
O Lord God, I pray that You'll send the shower of the Holy Spirit and power over this audience, that'll shake every one of them to their senses to realize that the great Holy Ghost is here and has made them well. Grant it, Lord.
Satan, I defeat you through Blood of the Lord Jesus, and His stripes carried His sufferings at Calvary. You are defeated, Satan, come out in the Name of the Lord God and the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
L-89 All of you that believes that you're healed by the power of God, stand up on your feet and give God praise. Don't be afraid. If you accept it, stand up.
Give us a chord, "I Will Praise Him,"...?... Oh, isn't that wonderful? What about in the wheelchair? Are you afraid? Don't be scared. All right..?...
[Congregation sings, "I Will Praise Him."--Ed.] That's right...?... Every...?...
Now, get out of all that starchy feeling, break yourself loose, and raise your hands to the great Creator, Who stands present to judge us, and sing it with all that's in you. Sing it.
[Congregation sings, "I Will Praise Him."--Ed.] Lift Him up and give Him praise...?...

58-0508 - Memorial Auditorium, Burlington, VT (Paragraphs: 49 - 74)
L-50 I want to ask first, who has prayer card 85? Would you raise your hand? The lady. Eighty--six, would you come right over here, lady, if you can walk? 86? The gentleman? Right here, sir. 87? Right over here, sir. 88? Now, if you can't walk, move your hands like this and the ushers will get you. 85, 86, 87, 88. [] These things are not done in a corner. I have...
Last night, how many in here witnessed me saying that I'd been in prayer on the mountain practically all day, for the enemy had set a trap? But God will deal with that enemy. See, it's foretold before it comes to pass, then you know that it was true.
L-51 I suppose, lady, that you and I are strangers to each other? We are. Now, this is a scene before your eyes as Scripture, Saint John 4. The lady, I have never seen. Someone give her a prayer card, had a number on it. Her number was just called at random, and here she stands. And to both of us before the God of heaven, we have never met before as far as I know. I do not know the lady; she does not know me. And then, this is the way it was in Saint John, the 4th chapter of the Gospel, that there was a Man and woman met for their first time. And Jesus told the woman where her trouble was, and she believed Him to be the Messiah, and told other people, "Isn't that the sign of the Messiah?"
If He remains the same tonight as He was then, that will continue to be the sign of the Messiah. That's... And He promised He would do it just before the world's destruction. We're living in that hour. We're marked. [John 4:17, 25]
L-52 In the picture which was laying here a moment ago [Someone asks, "Want it?"--Ed.] No. You saw on there a Light. And that Light, I claim to be the Spirit of God, One of the Spirits of God, an Angel, that's went from Him.
And before Him, Who we stand, you're aware that that standing in the presence of a man wouldn't make you feel the way you are now. There's something going on. That is right.
And I want to ask you before the audience, you be the judge if--if I would guess and say you're sick and something's wrong with you (which I do not know), but you might say, "The Brother guessed that." But if He tells you something that you know, something that--like He did in the Bible, and like He did the woman at the well, or something that you know that I know nothing of, and He will do that, then you know that there's Something here present that knows you? I do not. Would you believe it to be the--the Spirit of God? You would? Would the audience believe the same? May He grant it.
L-53 Now, if the audience still can hear my voice, the lady is suffering from an extreme nervous condition. That is right. If that is right, raise up your hand.
Do you believe that that was the Spirit of God that said that? Would you think that I just guessed that? If you would, just so that you would know different, let the Holy Spirit speak now. And let's... If God is God, He remains God. I don't know what was told you, lady. It wasn't me that spoke. It was my voice, but I wasn't using it. Just like this here, it's a mute unless something speaks through it. I be a mute in this day, 'cause I don't know you, but maybe He will tell us something else. But ever what He said was the truth. I'm speaking to you as man and woman like our Lord spoke to the woman at the well, merely, to see what Father will say, 'cause He said, "I do nothing till the Father shows Me." [John 5:19]
L-54 Yes, I see the lady in her house. She's real nervous, upset about something; she drops things so often, and it's... What's caused this, is the time of life that's here, she's now living, the time of the menopause coming to her. Another thing, I see she's got sugar diabetes. That is true.
You're not from this city; you've come from another city. That city's called Richford, Vermont, and your name is Mrs. John Jones. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD. Return home, for God has healed you by your faith. Go and be well. The Lord bless you, sister.
L-55 Do you believe? Do you realize that you're in the presence of the Almighty God, friend? With this Bible, which is His Word, don't doubt no more; have faith.
Sir, we are strangers to each other. The God of heaven will--we will meet and God will judge us someday. I have no way of knowing you, sir. You're stranger to me, but if the God of heaven will tell me what you're here for, sir... I believe you come in sincerity. Yes. Will you accept it as being the Son of God Who has promised this?
Jesus remains the same, Who met Nathanael, another... Two men met. I'm trying to quote the Scriptures of each case, so that the people can see it's parallel, and know that it's not me, a man; I have nothing to do with it, sir.
You're suffering also with an extreme nervous condition, and you've gotten so nervous, until it's bothered your heart. You're having heart trouble (That's right. Yes, sir.), fluttering and jumping. You can't sleep; I see you get up at nights and trying to get your breath. That's the truth, sir. Not only that; but you believing me to be the--the servant of Christ... Let me tell you, so you will believe me more. You got someone with you in your heart that you want prayer for; that's your mother. She has complications, doesn't she? You have very good faith. That's right. You're a Catholic to begin with. You are a Catholic. I see you with a rosary, so that can't be hid. You're a Catholic. That's perfectly all right. Your faith makes you whole, sir. Do you believe it? Return and give praise to the God of heaven for your healing. God bless you. God bless you. God of heaven bless you, my brother. [Someone speaks to Brother Branham--Ed.] Any way you care to, sir.
L-56 Will someone come over here, please and--over here and watch from the other side.
Do you believe? Just have faith now; don't doubt; have faith.
Young couple, stop that or go out of the building. Suit yourself. The God of heaven will curse you.
L-57 I do not know you. Someday we'll stand in the judgment. It happened to be that a blessing came to the lady with glasses on, there with the brown coat on, who's suffering there with heart trouble, setting right here, looks around... Do you believe the Lord God will make you well, my sister? Can have what you've asked for if you believe it. Don't doubt. Just have faith now. Pray, believe.
You are trying to believe, setting there on the end of the seat. You walk with a cane. It's because part of your foot's been taken off. That is true. I don't know you. I've never seen you, but that's the truth. Raise up your hand if that's true. If you'll believe God with all your heart, you can go out without your cane in support. What did she touch, setting there? What happened? What was it rebuked the young couple and blessed the aged woman?
L-58 Now, young man, are you going to mind me? Young lady? You're interfering with the Holy Spirit. I'm warning you before it takes place. Either behave, or the usher will come and see that you can go out, or the police, one, back there. Now, you're in a religious service, which is two years for disturbing it. Now, you behave. Not at this time, officers.
L-59 You believe God would heal that stomach trouble for you? You believe He would? What do you think about the son? You think he'd come out of that paralyzed condition? He's in a hospital. That's true, sir. You've got a wife with you that you're praying for. If God will tell me what's the trouble with your wife, will you accept healing for her? She has trouble with her head and high blood pressure. That is true, sir. Is that all true? Now, go and find it just as you have believed, and God be with you.
You're not here for yourself. You're here for a friend, lady friend, that has multiple sclerosis. That is true. I cannot heal her, but do you believe that God will heal her? Then go believe it with all your heart, you can receive what you've asked for.
How do you do?
I hate to do this.
L-60 You believe that God would healed your ear and make you well? Do you believe He knows the thoughts of your heart? You're praying for someone else. It's your mother and father. One has arthritis. The other one has heart trouble and something wrong with her foot. That is true. You believe? Go, find it the way you've believed it. It'll be just the way you've believed it. The God of heaven bless you.
A nervous heart... God can heal heart trouble. There's many out there, suffering with the same thing. There is the Angel of Light, the Spirit of God. The man setting here on the end of the row right back here, you have sinus trouble, the elderly man, setting by the large man, sinus trouble. You have stomach trouble. That is right, sir. Raise up your hand, sir. I tell you what's causing that. You're trying to quit a habit. Tobacco is a hard thing on sinus. It'd be a hard thing on stomach trouble. You accept God to take it away, do you, and believe that He will heal you? The Lord God bless you, then. Go and receive it the way you have believed. Have faith.
L-61 A man, just back behind you there, looking at me with the glasses, got arthritis, also have trouble with the head. If you'll believe with all your heart, you can be healed of that. Being that you have it also, there's a lady setting there, looking down at a child. She has trouble with her head, too. That is right. Them's your grandchildren on each side of you. Correctly. Hold your hand if that's true. I do not know you, do I? You're aware that something's going on? One of your grandchildren wants prayer for being nervous. The other one has an infection. That's right, raise your hand. Both of them are healed.
L-62 All of you that has heart trouble, stand to your feet just a moment. Every person with heart trouble; there's too many to call, you just can't catch them. Stand here just a moment, sister.
Come. Our sister suffers with a stomach trouble caused from nervousness. All with nervousness or stomach trouble, stand to your feet, just a minute, and just remain standing, every person with nervousness or stomach trouble. Stand right here. You had a stomach trouble, too, so stand right here, just also the same way. Are you believing, no matter what's wrong with you?
Come, sister. Your trouble's in your back. All right. Stand right here. Everyone with back trouble, stand to your feet, just a minute; that's kidney and so forth. Can't God heal out there? See, there's so many of them I just can't call them. They've got out of my reach. You're believing; that's the reason you've stood. You're believing.
L-63 Now, the reason that I told you last night, before it come to pass... How many was here last night, that heard me say, "Satan has done some evil, has set a trap for me. And I don't know how to handle it." How many remembers that?
It was the young man and young woman setting there. To curse them, they'd go blind or be paralyzed. If I hold my peace, they live. Now, before it come to pass, I'm sparing you.
L-64 You people believe that God is here. Now, to you that's sick, bow your heads just a moment for prayer. Believe, you here, with all your heart, the Holy Spirit, Who is near.
Eternal and blessed God, Who roared from Mount Sinai, You Who spoke through the apostle Peter and told Ananias and Sapphira, "Why did you do this to the Holy Spirit?" Just because his voice spoke, one fell dead, and the other one was packed out in a little bit. You're still God, but You're full of mercy. And it was foretold to these people before it come to pass, that they might know that Your servant tells the truth.
Now, eternal God, be merciful and grant tonight, that as the enemy sent this young couple in, that You'll forgive their sins, that they will not be harmed, but You will forgive them. You've come to spare the life of men, but the Holy Spirit has sent His blessings to heal the people just the same. Your grace has overrode it.
But now, the people will know, and the young couple knows that I had nothing to do with them coming here, but told the night before of their being here.
L-65 Now, Lord God, I pray Thee, to be merciful to those who are standing, who are sick and afflicted. May the great Holy Spirit come into their hearts just now, into their bodies, and let them know that the God Who lived in the New Testament is alive tonight. That it is foretold, then comes to pass. And all things are done perfect and true through the Holy Spirit. We found it so, and we love You, Lord Jesus, because that You have loved us and has washed us in Your Blood, and has made us Your children. Thank You, Father, for these things.
And we now rebuke the devil of sickness from the people, that he will depart from them and they may all be made well, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
L-66 All that believe and accept your healing from God, stand to your feet just now, as you accept, without one shadow of doubt, feeling in your heart that God has healed you. How you ought to give thanks to God.
The Bible said, when something like this taken place in the Bible time, there was fear fell on all the people throughout all the regions. What do you think tonight? If you are a sinner, if you're an unbeliever, I invite you here to this platform, to the pulpit, to surrender your life to Christ. Come now. Let every man... If you believe that God hears my prayer and heals the sick and afflicted, which everyone to their feet has accepted it...
L-67 Lady, what about you? There's something wrong with a cripple or something there. You believe God has made you well? You won't have to go along on your sticks no more? You do? You can have what you've ask for then. All right, God bless you. You're on your feet now to stay, if you'll believe it.
Now, you people that wants to--Jesus Christ to be merciful to you now, now in the hour of your death, would you come here to the platform while we sing the hymn, "Almost Persuaded." All right. God bless you. All right singer...
"Almost persuaded" now to believe;
"Almost persuaded" Christ to receive;
Seems now some soul to say, "Go, Spirit, go Thy way,
Some more convenient day on Thee I'll call."
"Almost persuaded,"

(Just make your places right around here to stand, as penitent people who comes to receive Christ, "Whosoever will is come, Catholic, Protestant. Here stands Catholic and Protestant. Makes no difference. We're not asking you to change your churches. We're asking you, in the presence of God, as His servant, and you bear record of these things...)
Seems now some soul to say, (Don't sin away your...?... day of grace.)... "go Thy way,
Some more convenient day on Thee I'll call."
[Mark 8:34]
L-68 Let us bow our heads now, reverently in prayer. He Who created the earth, He Who brought Jesus from the dead and made the promise that His, the Spirit of His Being, would live in His church until He come again... There should not be left, one bit of doubt in your hearts. If there is, you're certainly cursed of God. If you could stand under this and still disbelieve, God be merciful.
You who are standing here at the altar, no matter what church you belong to, Protestant or Catholic, it has nothing to do with it. Look at the people that's healed. I don't believe there's one that I know of but what stood to their feet, that what did not accept their healing. You seen what happened at the platform, and just as sure as you could be told days before, weeks before, and months before, it's told now of a healing. If He knows what was, He knows what will be. He knows the future and can tell it. He's God. You're in His Presence. God be merciful to you now. You pray and repent. Ask God to forgive you and to give you of His mercy. I'm sure He will.
L-69 And if there's anyone else who desires to come at this time, we're not telling you to go to certain churches. We want you to go to any church you want to, but we want you to come now. If you feel condemned in your heart, that you come in and was wrong, and that you have sinned and done that which is wrong, the altar is open for your confession to God, not to me or to any other man, but to God. Come and ask forgiveness. He's here in great mercy, to heal the sick and to forgive the sinner.
If there's another while we sing softly, once more, a hymn, this verse... "Almost persuaded' now to believe; "Almost persuaded" Christ to receive." Will you sing it? And if you desire to come, pray and just ask the Holy Spirit... There's no need of me telling you He's--Him--here. You know He is. Let us sing now, with your heads bowed, prayerfully, as we sing the hymn.
"Almost persuaded" come, come today;
"Almost persuaded" Christ to receive;
"Almost" cannot avail; "Almost" is but to fail!
Sad, sad, that bitter wail: "Almost--but lost!"
L-70 [Brother Branham begins humming--Ed.] May we hum it now. O Lord God, we are standing in awe. Even myself, I'm wondering; I'm amazed at Your grace: how good and holy Thou art, how long suffering and tender mercies can last. I... It's amazing to me. As a poet said, "Amazing grace..." We love You, dear God. Forgive us of our trespasses, as we forgive those who has trespassed against us. And freely from our heart, we forgive everyone who has trespassed against us, that our sins may be blotted out. Take our iniquity and bury it in the sea of forgetfulness of Thy Blood. Grant it, Lord. Bless this people who are waiting. God, grant it. [Matthew 6:14-15]
L-71 Those who are standing here, doing penance to Thee, asking for mercy, 'cause they know that they are in Your Presence. O eternal God, give to them peace of heart. Speak to them. Give them experiences as You did in the Bible days, for it is truly Bible days are here again, at the end of this Gentile age.
Soon we are looking for Jesus to come. Don't know just when it will be, till when the whole world will go into powder from an atomic bomb or some attack that has been prophesied by the prophets, thousands of years ago, that the world would rock and burn with--with fervent heat.
L-72 And we ask God, that You'll be merciful to us, and grant, Lord, that each one standing, penitent at this altar, that their sins may be gone. I ask this as Your servant, standing between the living and dead. I ask, their sins and iniquity to be done away with.
I may never be able to shake their hand in this earth, but I'm looking forward to that time if I shall live faithful. They are the trophies of Your Presence tonight. You said, "No man can come to Me except My Father draws him. And all that comes, I'll give them Eternal Life and will not cast them away, but will raise them up at the last day." And we believe that, and we are calling that for these children of Yours that's penitent at the altar. May... There was some in here who should have come and did not. Be merciful to them, dear God. And grant the same to them, I pray. [John 6:44]
L-73 Now, if there be one left, anywhere, that's not accepted healing, that doesn't feel that Christ has made them whole, may they at this time receive such. And may this meeting be long remembered in the memories, even of the little children if Christ shall tarry.
Trusting Lord, that You'll bless this people for their efforts and all they have done. We commit them unto Thee, in the Name of Thy Son, the Lord Jesus.
L-74 And with our heads bowed, I'm going to ask that one of the pastors here, Brother Sweet, walk forward now, as you remain with your heads bowed for the closing prayer and whatever he has chose to do. I appreciate all your sincerity.
How many at the altar, standing here with your heads bowed, believes that your sins are forgiven and they're under the Blood of the Lord Jesus? Would you raise your hand to Him and say, "Lord, this I believe." The Lord bless you, each and every one along the altar. He never fails. He always answers prayer. I'm so grateful to you. God bless you now, while we bow our heads, turning the service to Mr. Sweet.
