|Led By The Spirit (59-0407)|
E-1 Let us remain standing now for a word of prayer.
O Lord, we are grateful to Thee tonight for this grand opportunity to come to Thee, and to call Thee our Father. Oh, what a privilege for a mortal to call God his Father. This was all made possible by the love of Thy beloved Son and His sacrifice when He died at Calvary to redeem this fallen race of Adam's back to God. And we're so thankful to Thee tonight for ever sending Him. And we pray that His Spirit, which is with us now, will bless us in the further part of this service. Bless the feeble efforts that we put forth to magnify His Name.
Save the lost, Lord. Let them realize tonight their serious conditions of being away from God in this great dark hour that we're living in. May they come back. If they have ever accepted Jesus as their Saviour, may tonight they hurry back and meet Him again. I'm sure He will be standing with outstretched arms, waiting. May something be done or said tonight that would cause them to act in this manner.
E-2 And we pray for the sick and the afflicted, that the Presence of the Holy Ghost will bring faith to the people's hearts, that they might accept their healing that Jesus gave to them some nineteen hundred years ago when He was striped at… in Pilate's judgment hall.
Forgive us of our shortcomings. Our unbelief, place it under His Blood. When we leave tonight, may we be able to say like those that came from Emmaus, "Did not our hearts burn within us as He talked to us?" For we ask it, in Jesus' Name. Amen. May be seated.
E-3 I was talking just a short while ago this late evening, or afternoon, rather, to little Ricky's father. And they're going to have little Ricky here Thursday night on the platform. I'm sure you'll all be glad to see little Ricky. That's the one we were testifying of last evening. They're going to bring him. He was a hopeless case. The doctors had give him up with cancer. And even to run his little tongue out of his mouth, and his little face swollen up… And the Lord Jesus immediately touched him, and he's living today. His father was here last evening, and is going to bring him Thursday night with the mother, here at the platform, the Lord willing.
I have been letting you out so late each evening till I'm… feel kindly ashamed of myself, so I'm going to hurry right up tonight and try to get the prayer line through.
E-4 I wish to read for a little quotation, which I'll just take a few moments to try to build a context around this that I'm reading for a text. I want to read from Saint Luke, the 2nd chapter, the 25th verse–reads like this:
E-5 Our scene opens tonight, in that great historical city of Jerusalem, some two thousand years ago. Let's kinda believe it was on Monday morning just after a great day before of worshipping. And as there was in Palestine at that time, some two million Jews… So there…
They was very religious, devout to their laws. And it was a law that had been given them, that after a baby was born, a male, after eight days it must be circumcised. And then the mother must offer a sacrifice for her purification, for her cleansing.
E-6 And being so many children, or so many people in Jerusalem at the time, and the regions around about, there must have been every morning a long line of women standing ready to offer their sacrifice for their purification of their baby–of theirself from–from having the baby.
And this morning was no exception. There must've been a great long line of women. And they were, perhaps, talking just as mothers do, and having their little babies. And each one is the prettiest little baby in the world, of course, as all mothers think of their babies. And they should think that. And many was coming all prettied up, you know, for this great event.
And them that was able to afford such, a lamb was provided for the sacrifice. That was for a family that was able to–could afford such. But if the family was poor and could not afford a lamb, a turtledove would do just as well.
E-7 I can see down along that long line of woman in the side of the temple, pretty little jackets made on babies for–their little boots and so forth, as mothers love to dress them, and waited for the event. And it must have been a dramatic sight to watch this.
But on this morning, way down along the line, I see a little lady. We'd judge her to, say, about sixteen, eighteen years old. And she had a turtledove or two in her hands for her cleansing. And we notice the little baby that she was packing did not have on a little blue jacket, or a little needle work clothes. But I notice it's wrapped in swaddling's cloth.
And if I get the right understanding of what this baby was wrapped in, was something they'd taken off of the back of a–a yoke of a ox, that was hanging in the stable, a little cave stable in Bethlehem where It was born.
E-8 And, of course, this little lady, she being believed to have been, this baby borned out of holy wedlock. You can imagine how the women felt. "Keep your distance from her, for she's really… That baby is not really born in holy wedlock, because she was to be mother before she and Joseph was married." Keeping their distance… But yet in that little Jewish woman's arms, she held a Treasure that she knew where It come from.
And I think that's the way it is tonight to everybody that's ever received Christ. They might be kindly excommunicated from their associates and from what's called the popularity of the world. And they might not be as popular among the–the great people of the world, as they… as they would– maybe, could've been. But down in every person's heart that's ever held Christ, they know what they're holding.
Sometimes they have to bear a name of being a fanatic. And it's been that sometimes the devil has placed that ridiculous name of holy-roller. No matter what kind of a name they have to bear, they know what they're holding.
E-9 It didn't bother little Mary, as she looked at her little baby and beat Him on the chin with her fingers to watch His pretty little smile across His face. No matter how far they kept from her, she knew what she had.
That's the way it is tonight with Christians. They know what they've got when they've ever took Christ in their heart.
E-10 Now the time had come where there was not too many believers left. But God has always had a remnant of people who believed Him. And we're told that there was an old man in Jerusalem at that time by the name of Simeon. And he was a renowned old fellow. He was a teacher, a master in Israel. Let's say he'd be some eighty years old, long flowing white beard, and his hair. But he was a devout man. He was a man who believed God and was waiting for God to fulfill His promise.
I'd like to stop here just a moment to say this. If you make a promise to anybody, you're obligated to that promise. And if you're a man or woman of honor, you'll do everything you can to keep that promise. But it could be that something might happen that you could not keep it.
But did you know God's more obligated to keep His promise than you are? When God makes a promise, He's got to keep it in order to be God. Every promise He makes is true. And He's obligated to that promise. If you'll keep that in mind while you're crossing through this prayer line tonight, something will happen to you, to know that God cannot make a promise and not stick to it. He's got to.
And He–He knows all things, so He's infinite. We're finite and can make a promise and have to take it back. But He can't, because He's perfect. He knows everything, the end from the beginning. So He has to keep His promise. And He's always got somebody who will believe that. God, let me be one of those. No matter how much you have to be criticized and laughed at, let me believe God's promise and stay with it.
E-11 And this old man was a honorable man, had a great reputation among the people. And one day, perhaps maybe in the prayer room or in his study, the Holy Ghost came to him and made him a promise. And said, "Simeon, you're not going to die until you see the Christ." He believed it. He had a right to believe it, because the Holy Spirit had give him the promise. And the Holy Spirit, Who gave him the promise, was obligated to bring him to Christ when Christ came.
That's the reason that you're here tonight for Divine healing, is because you believed that God made the promise. How many believes in Divine healing, would you…
E-12 You know, David said one time, "When the deep calls to the deep." If there's a deep calling, there's got to be a deep to respond to that call. I've often made this statement, that before there was a fin on a fish's back, there first had to be a water for him to swim in, or he'd never had use of the fin. Before there could be a tree to grow in the earth, there must first be an earth for it to grow in.
Some years ago I read in a newspaper where a–a little boy was eating the erasers off of his pencils at school. And his mama found him one day out on the back porch eating the peddle off of his brother's bicycle. And they was… She was disturbed and she took the little fellow down to the clinic. And as the faithful doctors examined him in every way they could, they found out that his little body was craving sulfur. And sulfur's found in rubber. Now, why was he eating the peddle off of the bicycle? Because there was something in there calling for sulfur. And if there was something calling for sulfur, there had to be a sulfur first, or it would never have been in there.
E-13 In other words, like this, before there can be a creation, there has to be a Creator to create the creation. And if you're thirsting tonight for the healing power of God, there's got to be a fountain open somewhere, or you'd never thirst for it. How many longs for a deeper walk with God. Every hand up. Well, there's a deeper walk somewhere, or you'd never thirst for it.
Something has created in you a desire to walk closer to God. Something has created in you a desire to be healed by God. Well, before that could be created in your body, in your spirit, there has to be a Creator of that. And that Creator is the Holy Spirit. That's why you're here tonight, is because the Holy Spirit has led you here.
E-14 Now, Simeon read in the Scriptures where that there was coming a Messiah. And while he was sitting reading this Scripture, the Holy Spirit said, "You're not going to die until you see Him." He wasn't afraid of his testimony. He didn't care about his prestige. He was telling everyone. "I'm going to live to see the Messiah come."
Oh now, of course, you know what the world would've thought of that. Some of them, perhaps said, "The old man's just gone off a little bit in the head. His–his mind's kindly leaving him." And it'd be said about you.
When people take God at His Word and believe His promise, it's so supernatural till it becomes crazy to the people of the world. If they just… God is so much greater–His promises, and His power, and His being, and His living. And His expectations of us is so much higher than the things of the world, till we become crazy to the world. And has not the Scripture well placed it, "All that live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecutions." Blessed are you when you're persecuted for Him.
E-15 Now, we see this old man going around and telling people. And no matter what they said, he believed it, because he had a good reason to believe it. The Holy Spirit had led him and created in him a faith to believe that.
That's why you're here tonight for healing. You've read it in the Scripture; it's a promise of God. As he read there's a promise that the Messiah's coming, then the Holy Spirit said, "You're going to see Him.
The same Holy Spirit… There's no two Holy Spirits, there's only one. The same Holy Spirit that led Simeon to testify that, has led you here tonight.
E-16 There he was. On this morning he was sitting back, say, into his study. And all of a sudden something taken place.
I like God's sudden moves, don't you? Just shakes you all at once, and you respond to it. Something's fixing to happen.
Then Simeon setting back in his study, perhaps, we would say, he reached over into the little pocket and pulled out a scroll. And he begin to read it. And it read something like this. "Unto us a Son is born; unto us a Child is given. And His Name shall be called Counselor, Prince of Peace, Mighty God, Everlasting Father." And just about that time, the Spirit must've said, "Stand on your feet, Simeon."
And without a least of hesitation, the old sage dropped the scroll on the table and stood to his feet. "Start walking, Simeon."
"Where shall I go, Lord?
"That's none of your affair. Just start out, I will take the rest of the way."
E-17 That's the way it is to you tonight in the wheelchair. You, cots, stretchers, wherever you are, if God's making the lead… The doctors says you're going to die; that's the best the doctor knows. But if Something tells you to rise and accept Christ as your Healer, start walking. It's His business to take care of the rest.
"I haven't moved, Brother Branham, for so…" That don't make any difference if you've never moved. God speaks to your heart, "Move!" move. For sons and daughters of God are led by the Spirit of God, Romans 8:14.
E-18 And Simeon started walking. Led by the Spirit, here he comes into the temple. Strange enough, he turns, not knowing where he's going, walks down to this line of women. Some of them here's, "Here comes the honorable reverent Simeon." Walks down along the side of the line… "Oh," some of them says, "you know that's the old man that the–some of them have said that kinda gone off of his head. He's got too religious."
Do you think tonight, that he was too religious? Certainly you don't. He's a saint in our scene, and in heaven tonight enjoying fellowship with all of the redeemed.
E-19 And as he come walking down along that line. I see him stop by this little lady that everyone was keeping their distance from. Well, someone might have said, "There you are. See, birds of a feather flock together." That's true. I like that too.
"Come out from among the world and be separated," is God's command. "Be separated, and then I'll receive you."
And here she comes, walking over toward Simeon as he reached his arms for the baby. And I can see him as he looks in the face of this baby, he raises his head towards heaven, and the tears of joy must've run over his old white beard, when he said, "Lord, let Thy servant depart in peace, according to Thy Words, for my eyes have seen Thy salvation." Led of the Spirit…
E-20 Way over in the corner setting in a little darkness of the world with no eyes to look through, yet, she could see better than many theologians tonight in Los Angeles with good eyes. Her name was Anna. She was a prophetess. She didn't leave the temple; she stayed there day and night, fasting, praising God, waiting for the coming of the Messiah. And the Holy Spirit must have said, "Stand on your feet, Anna."
She didn't have any eyes; she was blind. Here she come, weaving her way through the people, led by the Holy Spirit.
What was… What Holy Spirit was that? The same One that led you here tonight, still moving over the sons and daughters of God.
Led by the Spirit as she moved along. She come close to the baby and raised up her hands and blessed God. If the Holy Ghost could take an old blind woman in the corner and lead her to the Christ, how much more should He lead us tonight? Led, moved, God works in mysterious ways, His wonders to perform.
E-21 Just a little personal testimony of something comes in my mind. I was coming from Dallas not long ago, a few years ago, and there come a storm in the air. And–and I was on one of the airlines, and it come down at Memphis. And so they told me to go up to the… The limousine was taken me up to the Peabody Hotel. It's a great place. I thought that would be good if at least one time I get to stay in a big hotel, so they was going to pay for it. So they took me up and give me a nice room at their expense.
So after I got settled down, the phone ring. I was writing some letters, and fixing to read my Bible, and then pray, and go to bed. Said, "Reverend Branham, the plane will be leaving in the morning at seven o'clock. This flight will not go out until seven. The limousine will pick you up at seven."
E-22 I said, "Very well, sir," I hung up, and finished my mail, and prayed, and went to bed. And had them to call me. And early the next morning I got up, and I thought, "I don't want any breakfast. Somehow I feel like it's a beautiful morning. The sun had come out real pretty. This was springtime." So I thought, "I'll run down real quick and find the post office box and mail these letters before the limousine picks me up for the airport." And I started out with the letters in my hand, going down the street.
And–and all of a sudden, Something said, "Stop and go back the other way." Oh, I thought that maybe that was an impression. Why would I want to go back that way?" So I just kept on going. And it got stronger, and stronger, until I said, "I must pray. This might be the Holy Spirit."
E-23 And there was… I happen to pass by a shop that had fishing tackle in it. So I went up in the little doorway there to look for the fishing tackle, or act like I was looking for it. And I seen the big Irish cop over there giving signals and letting the people cross. No one around me, and I bowed my head, and I said, "Lord, was that You speaking to me to go back?"
And Something said, "Turn, and go back."
I was sure It was God. I believe that people who are borned of the Holy Spirit understand what I'm talking about, just something impressing you so, not a audible voice or a vision, but just something that impresses you. People are born, set in the church to see visions and so forth. But the Holy Spirit works in many different ways. And it's just as real the Holy Spirit one way as it is the other way. It's all the Holy Spirit.
E-24 So I turned and started walking, walking, and I just kept on walking. Finally, I found myself down in the colored district. I looked at my watch, and it was ten minutes after seven. "Oh," I thought, "I missed my plane." But Something just kept urging me, "Go on. Just keep on moving."
I trust that that same Spirit tonight when you're prayed for, whether you're prayed for here at the platform or not, will let you get a vision of Christ's promise to you, and just urge you to keep on. "I can just move one finger." Just keep on moving that finger, till you can move a hand, and then an arm, and then a leg, and so forth, and then go on. "I feel just a little better." Well keep praising Him. Keep going on. Don't get off on a side line, "Maybe I will go back in the prayer line again." That's no good. Go on like the way you're going. Just keep being led by the Holy Spirit. That wee little voice, if you'd just open your heart, you'll hear It.
E-25 Notice. As we went on down the street, He and I. He was leading me along. And, oh, it was a beautiful morning. The sun was rising high now. And the–the roses was blooming down in the little clusters of the rambling rose, and so forth. And the fresh rain and the sun coming out had brought the fragrance of the honeysuckle. And it was a–a beautiful morning.
And I was going along there. I did not know no more of where I was going than–than I would known if I'd started out vice versa from the–my hotel tonight. Just going along led by the Spirit, I thought, "Oh, I done missed my plane, so I'll just catch another one. I'm in no hurry anyhow, got three or four days 'fore another meeting." I just kept on walking along, just thinking, "Lord, I don't know where You're taking me to, maybe a place of prayer."
E-26 I passed by a bunch of little shacks, like, where the–the– some of the colored people live. I looked, leaning across a–a gate…
And to my dear loving colored friends, tonight, me trying to impersonate this woman's voice now. I'm not trying to make light of your grammar, because mine's worse than yours. But she was leaning out, a typical Aunt Jemima, with a–a man's shirt tied around her head, great big fat cheeks. And she was looking down the street when I come up.
And I was singing that little song that you Pentecostal people sing, about "I'm So Glad I Can Say I'm One of Them." I believe that's the way it goes.
And I was trying to learn that little song.
E-27 I was going along, humming it to myself. And I noticed this old lady as she looked across the gate, great big smile across her face. I stopped humming, started on by. She said, "Good morning, Parson."
Said, "How do you do, Auntie." She just started grinning, the great big tears running off of those cheeks.
I said, "How did you know I was a parson?" Now, a "parson" means "a minister."
And she said, "I knowed you was coming."
I said, "How? Auntie, how did you know I was coming?"
She said, "Well, I'll tell you how it was, Parson." She said, "Did you ever read that story in the Bible about the Shunammite woman, who the Lord gave a baby by the promise that he'd–the Elijah, the prophet gave her?"
And I said, "Oh, sure. I'm well acquainted with the story. I just preached on it a few weeks ago."
"Well," she said, "I's was that kind of woman. And I didn't have any children, and–and the husband and I wanted a baby so bad. And I prayed, and the Lord gave me this baby. And I told Him I'd dedicate the baby to Him." And said, "I's washed over the washboard, Parson." She said, "I's a wash woman in this district." And she said, "I–I raised that boy the best of my knowledge to love the Lord." She said, "He got out in the wrong company and he taken a social disease. And we's didn't know nothing about no social diseases. And our boy got sicker and sicker. And finally we taken him to the doctor man, and he said there's no hopes for him, he's gone, that the–the venereal disease had got into his blood stream and eaten up the parts of his heart. And when his blood would pump up, so much of it would drop back through. The valves in his heart was eaten off by the disease." And said, "The doctor man said there was no chance for him." And said, "He's laying in there on the bed." And said, "He's been unconscious now for two days." And said, "I just can't stand to see my baby die like that, and I prayed all night last night, 'Lord, You's give me the baby, but where is the Elijah?'"
E-28 You can imagine how I felt. I thought, "Lord, is this it?" I never said a word. "I's…" to her about being led over there. I said, "My name is Branham. Did you ever hear of me?"
She said, "No, sah. I don't believe I ever did."
And I said, "Well, how did you now I was coming?"
She said, "I went to sleep about three o'clock this morning. And I dreamed that I saw a man coming, wearing a little tan suit with a little Western hat stuck over on one side of his head. He had some letters in his hands." And said, "The Lord said, 'Go out and wait for him.'" She said, "I've been standing here ever since."
I patted her on the back, and her back was wet with dew. It was true. And I said. "Well, my ministry is praying for the sick, Auntie."
She wasn't interested in that. She said, "Won't you come in?" She opened up that little old gate with a plow point hanging on a a chain. I walked into that little old hut that morning, little two room hut, no rug on the floor nor nothing, a little old poster bed, cracks in the floor big enough that, oh, the wind just sweep up through it.
I've been in king's palaces. And I've had the privilege of being in some of the nicest homes, I guess, in the world. But I never felt any more at home in all my life, than I did in that little hut that morning. When I–I looked on the wall, it was not pin-ups, it was a–a little motto on the wall, "God bless our home." A little old chunk stove set in the corner. And on this poster bed laid a fine looking big man, look like he'd go about a hundred and seventy pounds and some six foot tall. And he had the blanket in his hand, going, "Humm. Humm. Oh, it's dark," he said.
And I said, "What's he saying?"
She said, "Parson, he's been talking about… the last two days since he's been unconscious." Said, "In his unconsciousness, he thinks he's in a great sea somewhere lost in the dark. And he's pulling a boat trying to find land. And I can't stand to see my baby die like that, Parson."
E-29 She went over, and stroked his head, kissed him, and said, "God bless mammy's baby." Great big fellow like that, dying in shame and sin, yet that mother's love went… He was still a baby to her. No matter how much disgrace he was, and how he disgraced the family, it was still that love of the mother went out for her baby.
I think of that sometimes and think, "If a mother could forget her suckling babe," but God said, "I can't forget you. Your names are engraved on the palms of My hand."
So backslider, tonight, remember, you can't get away from it. He still loves you. That's why you're here tonight. He's trying to give you another chance, knocking at your door.
E-30 I got down in the floor to pray. She got down by the side of his head, and I got down by his feet. And I touched his feet. It seemed like it was cold, sticky. Certainly, death was on the boy. And I said, "Auntie, being that you are the mother of the boy, won't you pray first?"
She said, "Certainly, Parson." She bowed her head. And you talk about a prayer, you could tell it wasn't learned in some school; it come from the bottom of her heart. Speaking to God, you could tell she'd talked to Him before. She knew what she was speaking about. And when she got through praying, she wiped her eyes with the old apron she had on, and she looked over at me.
E-31 I said, "I will pray now, Auntie." I put my hands over on his feet. I said, "Lord, I don't know what to say. Is this why You made me miss my airplane to come down here to pray for this woman's boy? If it is, O Lord, let it be known that You're God and You'll respect her prayers and her sincerity."
And about that time, that big fellow said, "Oh, mama." Said, "It's getting da–light in the room now. The darkness is going away." In a few minutes he was setting on the side of the bed talking to us.
I rushed out quickly, thumbed a cab, went to the airport. And when I got into the gate, they was making the last call for that plane. God had held that plane on the ground by the faith of illi–a woman that probably didn't know her ABC's, some poor dark colored woman, ignorant as we would call it. God grounded that plane, and held it there until her prayer was answered. He's the same God tonight that He was then.
E-32 About two years after that, I was going to Phoenix on the train. I was going through Memphis. I'd never heard of them anymore. And if anyone's ever been in Memphis, the train coming from the East pulls into the station like this, and is going to make a twenty minute stop. I wanted to get some sandwiches, they ch–cost you too much on the train. About forty cents for a little bitty sandwich, I can get a sack full of hamburgers almost for that, and I just keep them in the train with me, and eat them as I went along as I got hungry.
So I jumped off to get me a sack full of hamburgers. And I started walking real fast, and I heard someone say, "Hello there, Parson Branham."
I looked over there, and a little old red cap standing there you know, and batting his eyes, come running over to me. I said, "How do you do, young man?"
Said, "You don't know me, do you?"
"I don't believe I do."
Said, "About two years ago, one morning you come down to my house."
I said, "You're not that boy."
He said, "Yes I am." He said, "I's a Christian now, serving the Lord."
E-33 Leadings of the Spirit… That same Holy Ghost has led you here tonight. It's led you here, not to go home sick, but to go home well. It's led you sinner friends here to go home a Christian, sold out to the things of the world. You backsliders, It's brought you here to come back home to God again tonight. Think of it while we bow our heads.
O Lord, as I think of these experiences of these thirty years of ministering on the field, I don't know tonight, Lord, where that boy is. You know. But some of these days when life is finished for us both, I'll meet him again. O Lord, while it is light, let us walk in the Light of the Holy Spirit, for the hour is coming when darkness and gross darkness will cover the people in the land.
E-34 We ask tonight, Lord, that You would take these people–that You have led them and placed in their hearts, that there is a God that loves them, and wants to save them, and wants to heal them. Now, that You've led them here for some cause, I believe it's because that Jesus, the Son of God, is present to take away all the sins and the sickness of the people; and You start in our hearts an old fashion revival. And may every church throughout the country be benefited. We believe that Thou art here, Lord, and we pray that You will bless our efforts.
And now, Father, we realize that talking is one thing, and speaking of a God is one thing, but when that same God will come and manifest Himself that He is alive, that He only died temporarily for an atonement that we might have these privileges to be led by His Spirit… Now may He come among the people with great power tonight, and do, and act, and show Himself alive by the same signs and wonders and miracles, that He did when He was here on earth. May He manifest Himself tonight to this people like He did to the woman at the well. May He manifest Himself tonight in the way that He told her she had husbands that–that wasn't legal husbands, and knowed the secret of her heart. And she said, "We know when the Messiah cometh, He will tell us these things." And He said, I am He that speaketh with thee." Let it happen again, Lord.
E-35 And grant it will be known tonight also, that the same One Who knowed where Nathanael was, and who he was, let Him be made known tonight also. And when those that were on the road broken hearted from Jerusalem, going to Emmaus on that first Yule–Easter morning, when the resurrection had just taken place a few hours prior to the time, He was among them and they didn't know it.
I'm sure it's the same thing tonight, Lord. You're here, but the people maybe don't know it. May You do for us tonight like You did for them then. When you got them in the room and closed the door, You did something just the way You did it before You were crucified. And they knowed by this, that It was their risen Lord. Light-footed, swiftly they ran to tell others. And may it be so tonight when we leave here, we'll go not only light-footed, but light-hearted to tell others that Jesus is risen from the dead. He forgives all sins of the sinners and heals the sickness of the people, for we have seen Him make Himself manifested to His Church. We ask this, in Jesus' Name, and for His sake. Amen.
E-36 I think there was a hundred cards given today. I'm going to ask you something just for the sake of time, and for the newcomers who is not–been their first time here; I do not claim to be a Divine healer. I do not believe there is such a thing.
I believe that Jesus Christ redeemed you from a life of sickness just as He redeemed you from a life of sin. If the old covenant had healing in it–the old atonement of the blood of lambs, and goats, and heifers had healing in it, how much more is this better Covenant got healing in it from the Blood of God's own Son, Jesus.
Now, you're already healed, every one of you. But the only reason that you can't accept it, maybe, is that you want to go through a routine of laying on of hands. That's all right. But that doesn't heal you. You–you're healed by your faith in a finished work that God did for you at Calvary. Your healing comes through that.
E-37 Now, the Holy Spirit has led you here tonight. Why? You believe in healing. If there's a fountain open somewhere, He's obligated to lead you to that. Now, the next is yours.
Now, to make it… If He… We could be sure that He was alive. If He's alive, He will be as He was yesterday, because the Scripture says He's the same yesterday, today, and forever. What was He yesterday? Did He go around with His chest sticking out and saying, I'm a healer?" Never. That don't look like our Lord. Our Lord never claimed to be a Healer. He said, "It's not Me that doeth the works, it's My Father that dwelleth in Me. It's Him that doeth the works." Saint John 5:19, He said, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, the Son can do nothing in Himself, but what He sees the Father doing, that doeth the Son likewise. The Father worketh, and I worketh hitherto."
In other wise, God showed Him by a vision every one of His miracles that He did. Now, trace it through the Scriptures and you'll find that it's the truth.
E-38 Only, sometimes the people, their faith touched God through Him. Then He got weak when a woman touched Him with a blood issue, caused weakness in His body.
But it was all done by vision, what the Lord had showed Him, because He can't tell something wrong. He said, "I do nothing until the Father shows Me (not reveals it, but) shows it to Me."
Elijah put all the wood and stuff in order, and put the sacrifice, said, "Lord, I did all of this at Thy command."
Man just can't go by… do what they want to do in their own will. Jesus didn't even do that. God had a program, and we've got to meet that program.
E-39 What if you've got an artesian well on this mountain, and a–a crop burning up on this mountain. You could stand and scream all night long, and it'll never water the crop. But if you'll work it according to the laws of gravitation, it'll bring the water right over to your crop.
That's the way it is here. The Holy Spirit's led you here. Now if you'll work according to the leading of the Holy Spirit that's brought you here, there's enough power in this room right now to heal every person that's here. I'm sure the Holy Ghost is here. Then if He's here to His promise that, "Wherever two or three are gathered in My Name, I'll be in their midst. Ask any one thing, agree upon it, it'll be done." Now, if we will agree…
E-40 It would be impossible for me to, almost, just take each one through this building to pray for them individually. I couldn't do it. But if the Holy Spirit will come, and we yield ourselves, you yield yourself, I'll yield myself… You have a gift; I have a gift. It's the gift of the Holy Spirit. Then let the Holy Spirit so enshroud us with His power, until I won't know what I'm saying, and I'll be able to be so surrendered to Him, that He will speak through my lips and tell you the secrets of your heart like He did when He was here on earth, Like He did when Peter come to Him; He said, "Why, your name is simon. Your father is Jonas. "Said, "From henceforth, you shall be called Peter." First time He'd ever seen Him…
When Philip come, He said, "Behold an Israelite, in whom there's no guile."
He said, "When did You know me, Rabbi?"
Said, "Before the…" When Nathanael come, rather, said, "Before Philip called you, when you were under the tree, I saw you." Think of it.
E-41 The woman at the well… He looked upon the people, and they said in their hearts, "He's Beelzebub." They didn't say it out loud, but Jesus perceived their thoughts. Is that true?
Said, "I will forgive you for calling Me beelzebub," but in so many words, "Someday, they Holy Ghost is coming, then speak against That, will never forgiven." Let us think of it.
And if our Lord, Who has led us here tonight in this congregation… When each one of us will stand at the day of the judgment, and give an account for tonight… We know that. And if the Holy Spirit will come in here and make Hisself known, that He is the risen Christ, everyone of you ought, with one accord, to believe it, for anything that you have need of, for the promise is, to whosoever will.
E-42 Now Lord, it's… I commit myself unto Thee now for this service. Bless these words that has been said, though they were broken up, Lord. But maybe, somehow, that You can place them together and get them into the people's hearts and mind, that they might understand. And may the Holy Spirit do this.
And come, Lord, and reveal Yourself to us tonight as that same risen Jesus, that He's present and keeps His promise, "I'll be with you, even in you to the end of the world. And the works that I do shall You do also." Let the works be here, Lord, that they might know with their own eyes, and hear with their ears the manifestation of the resurrection of Thy beloved Son, the Lord Jesus, for we ask it in His Name. Amen.
E-43 (What, A's or B's? B's.) Prayer cards B's, a hundred of them was given out just awhile ago in the meeting, as my son told me. And now, we'll start with B number 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. Let them come first and line up over here. Number 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. Just the ten, and then just a minute we'll get them all, but we don't want them a confusion. We'll be…
All right, while they're talking, I would like to ask the audience now… And please, give great reverence. See, we are in the house of the Lord. You believe that, don't you? And we–we must be real reverent, and respect each other, and love each other, and show respects to each other.
I believe it was a few nights ago here, somewhere else, that a crippled… No it's… It was a crippled woman. I believe that was in Jamaica, that she was setting there, and she gave a place, respects to a woman that had heart trouble, her place to stand at the line. And because she did that, the Holy Spirit come back around and healed her. That's it. That's it. Love and show respects to one another.
E-44 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. All right. We want to get lined up, ten, the first ten. As soon as they get them lined up, then we'll line up more, and then more, and then more, till we get them all lined up.
Now, while we're waiting on them, I wonder how many in the building tonight that's here and sick, and does not have a prayer card, but you believe that God's going to heal you, raise up your hand. You don't have a prayer card now. You have no prayer card, but you believe that the Lord Jesus is going to heal you and make you well. God bless you. Looks like it's just everywhere.
So while B's are–are coming, may I say this to–to you who are standing by. One time Jesus was on His road by a vision to heal–raise up a little girl by the name of… I don't know what her name was, her father's name was Jairus; he was a priest. And he'd come to get Jesus to go lay His hands on the little girl. And while he was yet coming, someone come and said, "Don't trouble the Master any farther; she's dead." And the little fellow's heart just about to break.
Jesus turned and said, "If thou can only believe."
And while He was on His road, the people thronging Him. There was a–a little woman who knowed that she couldn't attract a Man like that. So she said within herself…
Let's take it like this. It wasn't like that, you know the story. "I haven't got a prayer card, so I'm not going to be in the prayer line. But I believe that He's God, God's Son. So I'm going to go up there, and I believe that if I can just simply touch His garment, I'll be made well." Are you familiar with the story? And She pressed through the crowd, maybe squeezed between the people until she got to a place, and she touched His garment. She went back and set down.
Jesus stopped, and He said, "Who's touched Me?"
And the–they rebuked Him, said, "Why…" Peter did, and said, "Everyone's a touching You. Why did You say such a thing as that? 'Who touched Me?'"
He said, "I perceive that strength has gone from Me, virtue has gone from Me." And He looked around over the audience until He found the little woman without a prayer card. And He said about her blood issue she'd had, said, "Your faith has saved you."
E-45 Now, do you believe that He is the High Priest today according to the Book of Hebrews? The High Priest, He is setting His body, that corporal body that God was manifested in, for God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself…
Now, God's in His Church reconciling the world to Himself. But then when Jesus died for–to make the atonement. He rose on the third day, and God raised that body up and set It on His right hand in glory. You believe that? He's setting on the throne of God, the right hand of power and majesty in glory. And then, as we make confessions, then that body stands there as a perpetual atonement. And when we confess that He's did anything, He's a High Priest there to stand in our place, a sacrifice, a sacrificed High Priest, that's standing in the Presence of God with His own Blood to make intercessions upon our confession.
E-46 Now, here's what you do then. Say, "Lord Jesus, the great High Priest of the Covenant, I most humbly come to Thee in confession of my sin."
Now, sin is unbelief. Smoking's not a sin. Drinking's not a sin. Committing adultery is not sin. That's the attributes of unbelief. If you believed, you wouldn't do those thing. See? There's only one sin, and that's unbelief: "He that believeth not is condemned already." See? You smoke, lie, steal, drink, commit adultery, because you're not a believer. A believer doesn't do that. He's passed from death unto Life. "He that heareth My Words and believeth on Him that sent Me has Eternal Life, and shall never come to the judgment, but's passed from death to life." John 5:24.
E-47 All right. Have we got that many? 1, 10? 10 to 20 now. Let them stand, another ten. A's-10 to 20… 25. A-10 to 25. Let them come over here now and get in… Or, B, I mean. It's B prayer cards, from 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, on up like that till 25. Then we won't have any confusion, you know, too many on the floor, walking.
Now, do you believe that the Scripture teaches that He's a High Priest now that can be touched by the feeling of our infirmities? Does the Scripture teach that? Well, if He is the same Jesus, the same High Priest that walks here on earth… And for me, I don't believe there's any other Mediator between God and man, but that Man, Christ Jesus. That's right. I believe that God made Him the High Priest, the only Mediator between God and man.
Now. And then if He's setting there on the throne to make intercessions, and if you touched that High Priest with the feeling of your infirmities, how would He act? The same way He did when He was here on earth. Is that right?
E-48 Then how could He do that? By letting His Holy Spirit so carry us to a place that you would believe it, and by a Divine gift that the Holy Spirit has given me, relaxing myself, just making myself relaxed, till the Holy Spirit would speak through me, the very thing that's wrong with you, or the things for you to do just like He did the woman that touched His garment… Do you believe that?
All right. So then, don't think of prayer card now. Think of what the Lord Jesus has promised.
Now, 25 to 50 in B's. Let them stand. If you can go around to the part of the place back that way, maybe you… Is there and opening back that way? If you go right around through the back way, I believe you could make it a lot quicker than coming through this way. 25 to 50, let them line up. Now, the rest of you now without prayer cards, just set real reverent. Watch this a way. And if you'll believe right now, before the prayer line ever starts or anything, He will heal you.
Now, 25 to 50. The ushers… That's right, brethren. Get them right into the line. All right. As soon as that group clears out, we'll call some more. And if you'll go right out this way, I believe you won't have to squeeze among the people.
E-49 And now remember, that tomorrow night, Wednesday night, is a regular prayer meeting night. Be sure to come out. Thursday night, little Ricky's to be here. And Friday, Saturday, Sunday morning… Saturday morning, I'm to speak at the Full Gospel Businessmen's breakfast down in Los Angeles. I believe they have it at the Clifton's. Is that right, Brother Kopp? Clifton's. And then Saturday night back here at the Temple. And–and Sunday morning at a little Arminian church, way down… Only holds about twenty people. It's an old friend of mine. I'm going down to set in their church, come back. I'm getting plumb away form here. So if I go to one where all the cooperating ministers… Going down there to just sit with an old friend of mine. Sunday afternoon, back to the Temple, Sunday night back to the Temple also for the closing of the meeting as far as we know… Unless the Holy Spirit would do something different, we'd keep moving on if it'd please the people and everything, just as it seem to be pleasing to the Lord.
Then, we go from there down to San Diego. From San Diego back up to San Jose. And from there, home for a few days. And then over… As soon as Billy gets out of Sydney, I'm going into New Zealand, and Australia, and Siam, and around the world.
E-50 All right. Now, from 50 to 100 in B's, let them go right back in the back, and start going back that way, and taking your place.
Now, if anyone here's got one of those prayer cards that's crippled and can't walk, well let them just be brought right up here and I'll–I'll come down and pray for them.
Now, let's us who are waiting now, let's just bow our heads. And the organist, if you will give us a little chord of that "Only Believe," will you?
Every one real reverent now as we're making the lines ready, and making everything just in order as we possibly can to make it easy for each person to get into the line. Each person will have their place and position.
E-51 Now, I want each one of us who's not in the line to be reverent, praying quietly. The next few minutes, something will take place. I'm sure that it will. And if He will, if He will come here to the platform and in this audience, and do the same things that He did when He was here on earth, making… proving with the Messiahic sign that He is still the Messiah, then how many would believe it with all their heart? Just raise your hands to Him, say, "Lord, I will, I will believe."
Let's sing it right like this, real sweetly, as we raise up our hands and close our eyes: Now I believe.
Isn't He wonderful?
E-52 Now, we're going to start the prayer line just in a moment. Now, I want to ask you, this great host of people that's lined up along the side. There's no doubt but what many of you are acquainted with the ministry that the Lord Jesus gave me. As I tried to explain it last night, that I used to be, when the first vision broke, I could not stop those visions, they just kept coming. That's a criticism. I didn't pray for enough people.
My ministry does not mean praying for a group of people, laying hands on people. My ministry… The sign is not that I should lay hands on people, it's for you to believe the Lord Jesus is present and accept it that way. See, I love it that way. If I lay hands on someone and they get well, somebody might say, "You know, Brother Branham laid his hands on me." Really, that didn't have nothing to do with it. I'd rather somebody else would lay their hands on you out there. Jesus is the hands that you're expecting to be on there. So I have nothing to do with it. See?
And if I could just carry my ministry in America like I can overseas… I can have them bring two or three people to the platform, and those things can take place, and honestly, there'll be twenty to thirty thousand people healed at that one time.
E-53 I've got the—the man's name here, the governor Something of the island I was just on, when he said–said, "That's the way we wanted it here." Said, "A evangelist comes lays hands on the sick. Then when he leaves," said, "looks like God leaves." But said, "On your ministry, Brother Branham, you had us… let us know that God's with us too. We lay our hands on one another."
See, I just get them, the people up there, and I'd say, "Now, I can't even speak your language. Now, if the Holy Spirit will reveal to me something here that you know I know nothing of, will you believe it?" Yes, they'd believe it. And then the Holy Spirit come and reveal that, maybe go out in the audience and pick up a person like that. Oh, my. That's all it takes. They just leave their wheelchairs, cots, stretchers and everything. That settles it.
E-54 I say, "Lay your hands on one another, and let's… Don't you pray for yourself now; you pray for the one that you've got your hands on, they'll be praying back for you." The Bible said, "They shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover" Who? William Branham? No, the believer: "he that believeth." So you are a believer. You've got a right to hands on somebody, just recognizing the Presence of Christ.
Now, we'll run this long line again tonight. And maybe one night this week, I'll go back and catch over the old line again, and just bring some fundamental facts on that, that you can see from the Scriptures that Christ died for you, and it's your faith that makes you well. God bless you, my dear friend.
E-55 I see they're still trying to get them all in line back there, so I'm waiting just a–a few minutes to see if they still got them lined up.
Now, let's bow our heads just a moment now while we make ready. Set reverent now, waiting, each one now, waiting on the Holy Spirit.
Now, you that's in the prayer line, if you've got any unconfessed sin in your life, just be it known unto you, that God will never heal you as long as you got unconfessed sin in your life.
And that's why I take that line real slow, the old line, for the Holy Spirit would reveal to me. And all you are witness of that, how sin's been called out of people, told them, and this woman here in adultery with this man setting up here. You know how those things has been. And that's the reason I comb the case real close, before I try to pray a prayer of faith for them. 'Cause what if God put–let the devil put that sickness on them to bring them to discipline, and here I come around with a Divine gift with faith and took it off of them? See, I'm in trouble with God, like Moses who smote the rock instead of sp–speaking to it.
E-56 Now, see what trouble you get into? So now remember, tonight I'm just praying, laying hands on the sick. If Christ will come and manifest Hisself here now. And if I feel down along the line that He wants me to stop with somebody, I'll do that. But otherwise, I'm just going to start praying for the sick and just letting it go at that.
Now, and if you got unconfessed sin, remember, be it known unto you, I'm not responsible. I'm putting it right back in your lap now. If you got unconfessed sin, you walk right out of the line, and make that right with God before you come through this line. And the Lord will bless you for that if you'll be that sincere. But if you're prayed up, all right.
Now, let us all pray. Lord, with our heads bowed, just now, it's got to be known that Your Scripture's the truth, and I've told the truth of It, or either, I am wrong and a false prophet, or Your Scripture has misled us. Now, Lord, we know that that's not so. We know that Your Scriptures are Truth. But now, we have spoke and read of Your promises. The thing is now, is it so? Are You alive. Are You here? Do you keep Your promise, Lord? Oh, I feel sacrilegious, to even in prayer, make such a statement. Lord, You do keep Your promise, every one of them, truly. It's our unbelief that separates us from Your promises.
Now, I pray, Lord, that if You'll manifest Yourself tonight before the people, I ask that You'll take all the unbelief away from them, and this might be the greatest night of healing that this Temple has witnessed since the days of its founder. Grant it, Lord. I pray this prayer for the glory of God in these last troublesome days, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
E-57 Now, I guess…?… [Brother Branham speaks to a Brother–Ed.] There's many missing out of the line. My son said there was many many missing out of the line. Anybody's got prayer card B-1 to a 100, take your place in the line. You're–you're at liberty to do it. B-1 to a 100. All right, number…
All right. You just stand right there by that microphone, if you will, lady.
E-58 Now, just before… And I want everyone reverent. And how many out there will pledge they'll be praying for these people? This is somebody's mother, somebody's dad, somebody's daughter, son. And… Get her a chair. Let her set in a chair. The lady's so weak she can't stand up.
Now, being that she is weak and the first person in the line, I'm going to talk to her just a moment. Now, sister, you're… I know you're bound to be sick, or you wouldn't be standing there like that. So I… If I walked over to you and said, "I'm going to put my hands on you. Praise God, you're going to get well." You should believe that, because it's the… it's the… It's the Gospel truth that we have that promise. But you would wonder then if that was the words of Brother Branham, or if that was the Words of the Lord Jesus.
Now, but if He will come here, and would reveal to me what's you're here for. We're strangers to each strangers to each other, I suppose. If that's right, would you just raise up your hand, or can you? All right, we… This is our first meeting time.
E-59 Now, the audience can see that. I do not know the woman, have never seen her in my life, and this is our first meeting time. Now, if Jesus will do… Here's a man and woman, Saint John 4 again, just to start with. If the Lord Jesus will tell me something about this woman, something that she has done, something that she ought to have done, or something that's wrong with her, something that–that she knows that I don't know, let her be the judge whether it's truth or not. How many of you will believe that it comes from Jesus Christ according to His promise?
Now here we are both, and here's the Scripture, the Bible, on the sacred desk. We know not each other. And then if He will do that…
Now, usually, I just take one by one, right down… By the time I get to seven or eight, I'm so weak I can't hardly stands here. So that way, why, I will let one, and then go ahead till I get built back up again, and then maybe stop another, and then go ahead, and just keep on. But the same Holy Spirit is here that… He's bound to be here somewhere. He couldn't do that. Is that right? He's got to be. So the people in America rally to put their–to lay hands on them. So that's all right.
E-60 Now, may the Lord grant it, sister. I'm just going to talk to you like our Lord did the woman at the well. And this is our first time of meeting. We don't know each other. But I pray that God will reveal to me what's your trouble, and–and you be the judge.
The lady is suffering… She's tremendously nervous, right at the near of a breakdown. That's true, isn't it. Now, she doesn't look it in her face. A nervous person's usually skinny.
You might say. "Brother Branham, you guessed that." All right. Just to take every scruple from you now, let's talk to her again. Be real reverent.
Now, I don't know now what He told you was wrong, but whatever it was is the truth. You're the witness. Yes, I see her shaking trying to hold something, dropping it. It's nervous condition. That's right. A nervous condition. And then you have a… You have complications, just many things is wrong with you. And you–you've got a–a trouble in the inside of you, a–a tumor. And that tumor is in the bowels. Is… That's right, up for a operation.
Now, something's happened, and you now it has. So now you can go home and be well. You can walk off of the platform now and go home.
E-61 Now, do you believe with all your heart? See, just that poor thing's faith healed her. Now, we thank the Lord for that. All right. Now, do you believe He's here? Now, have faith, don't doubt. Just believe all things being possible now. Get your position, set still, be real quiet, and pray.
You come, sir. Lord Jesus, I bless this, my brother, in prayer, and may he be healed in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
Merciful God, I pray that in Jesus' Name that You'll bless this sister.
Lord God, Creator of heavens and earth, I ask You to bless and heal this, my brother. Just go eat now; it's done left you, your stomach trouble now, the arthritis also, just keep moving. Have faith now, believe with all your heart.
O Lord God, Creator of heavens and earth, bless our sister and heal her, I pray in Jesus' Name. Amen.
Come, sir. Lord, in the Name of Jesus Christ, bless this, our brother, and heal him. Amen.
O Lord, bless our sister and make her well, in the Name of Jesus Christ.
Lord, I pray that You'll bless sister, and make her well, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen. Don't doubt now, sister. If you don't doubt, you can be healed.
E-62 Come right… Lord, I pray that You'll heal this dear sister and make her well, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
Come. Lord, I pray that in the Name of Jesus Christ, that You'll heal this, our sister. Amen. God bless you, sister.
Do you believe with all your heart? Do you believe that Jesus Christ, the Son of God is near? O Lord, I pray that in the Name of Jesus Christ, that You'll heal our sister and make her well. Amen.
Just a moment. Something happened in the audience, a different woman from this. The woman setting there with the little white flower on her dress that's got heart trouble, if you believe with all your heart, Jesus Christ makes you well. You can go home and be well. Amen.
Do you believe, lady? Do you believe me to be His servant? If God would reveal to me what you're here for, would you believe me with all your heart? You're suffering with a nervous trouble for one thing. You have kidney trouble for another thing. That's right, isn't it. And you're fixing to go for an operation. That's on your foot; it's a growth in your foot. That's right. If God will tell me what your name is, will you believe me at all, believe it won't have be necessary to do that? All right, Ruth, you go home and get well. Jesus Christ makes you well.
E-63 Well, you believe that old diabetes would leave you when you get well, uncle? Go on your road and rejoice, and say. "Thank You, Lord." God bless you.
O Lord, bless my brother and heal him in the Name of Jesus Christ.
Come, sister. Lord God, heal this back trouble with her, and make her well in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
Come. You going to believe now it's going to make it well? Lord, I pray that You'll bless and heal…?… in Jesus Christ's Name. Amen.
Are you going to believe, brother? Come here. Upon the authority of God's Word, the power of this holy church praying, all of us together in the Presence of Jesus Christ, Who's here, you'll have to get well if you'll halfway believe it. Lord, I lay my hands upon the man in commemoration of Thy Word, in Jesus Christ's Name. Amen. Bless you, brother.
E-64 Come, brother. Lord God, bless our dear brother. And as I lay hands on him, may he never be crippled up with this demon. I pray in Jesus' Name. Amen. God bless you, brother.
Come, sister dear. You believing? While… Look at the people praying for you, hundreds and hundreds of prayers going for you right now. The Son of God, the Spirit of the Holy Ghost, right here moving in among us, Lord, I pray that You'll heal her and make her well, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
God, I pray that You'll bless our brother and make him well, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
Come, little lady. You believe if God can tell me what's wrong with you, it'd help you? All right. It's female trouble. So… That's right, isn't it. Just go on, you're healed. Amen. God bless you.
Lord Jesus, I pray that You'll heal this little lady and make her well, in Jesus' Name.
Come, sister. Do you believe that God knows all about you? You believe that… You believe that God could reveal to me what your trouble is? You believe you wouldn't have to have that operation then? The old gall stones and things'd leave you, and you go home and be well? You believe that? You believe that eye would get sight again and you'd be all right? You're supposed to be operated on this week sometime. That's right. Let's see, that's Friday. Don't–don't believe that. Go on, get well. Lord Jesus, I pray that You'll heal our sister and make her well, in Jesus' Name, Amen.
E-65 How do you do, little sister. Lord, I lay hands upon this child and ask for her healing, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
God bless this, our sister, and heal her, Father, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
Lord, I pray for the little baby. Grant, Lord, that this condition will leave the child, in Jesus' Name. Amen. Now, you heard the story of little Ricky last night? All right. That baby'd be the same. It's nothing too serious for our Lord. You just believe what I told you now.

E-66 Now, remember, friends. All these people are praying for you. When you go off of here, don't go with that downcast feeling. Walk off here saying, "Thank You, Lord Jesus for healing me." What more can He do? There's nothing more He can do. If He was standing right here, wearing this suit that He gave me, He could do no more than what He's doing right now, just do something to make you believe that He's present, and He did it. He's already done it. You have to believe it.

Just believe it with all your heart. It's a blessing that has to come with their prayers. This church is praying for you; all these people are praying. That blessing has to come on you.

E-71 Setting right back here on the end of this seat, setting there suffering with asthma, do you believe that Jesus Christ will make you well? If you believe it with all of your heart, you can have it.
Come. How do you do? For you or the baby? The Baby? Why, a little bitty tot; it couldn't understand anything that I'd say. What about you, as its mother? You believe that if God would let me know what's wrong with the baby, would it increase your faith? I see the baby shadowed for death, and that's the reason that I wanted to ask you, so that your faith would raise up to believe. If God will reveal to me the trouble with the baby, will you believe that I be His prophet, or His servant? I'd–I watched that word, prophet before the audience. See, see?
There's just someone who… God is… Not me, I have nothing, just–just simply an instrument standing here.
I don't know you, never seen you, never seen your baby or nothing. You know that's true. But if God will reveal to me what's wrong with your baby, then you'll believe it, will you? It's a heart trouble. That's right. And the doctors don't think it'll live. But your doctor told you, if the baby'd live to about a year old or a little more, they'd try to operate on it. And you're fighting hard for its life, because you've lost one before this. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD. You believe that if I'll lay hands on it, it'll be well? Lord God, Creator of heavens and earth, Who spared the life of little Ricky, I condemn the devil that's…?… this baby. In the Name of Jesus Christ, may it live. Now, by faith, I place the Blood of Jesus between this heart trouble and the baby, in Jesus Christ's Name. Amen. You're baby'll live now. Go on, believe with all your heart.
E-72 Lord, in the Name of Jesus Christ, may the woman be healed Amen.
In the Name of Jesus Christ, may the woman be healed.
Come, sister. In the Name of Jesus Christ, may the woman be healed.
Come, sister. In the Name of Jesus Christ, may the woman be healed.
In the Name of Jesus Christ, may the woman be healed.
Come, sister. God bless you, sister. May she be healed, Lord, in the Name of Jesus.
Come, believing now, sister, as you approach, not me, but Him now. Approach the High Priest. Dear Father God, I lay hands upon the woman in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, may she be healed. Amen. Now, just believe.
In the Name of Jesus Christ, I lay hands…?… God bless you, brother.
Come now. Dear God, my brother on this crutch tonight, I pray that You'll heal him, and make him well, as I lay hands upon him in Jesus Christ's Name. Amen…?… I pray, God, with all heart that You'll make our sister well, in Jesus' Name.
E-73 Lord God, I pray in Jesus' Name that You'll make him well.
I pray, Father God, that You'll heal our brother and make him well. Amen.
Father God, I pray that in Jesus' Name that You'll make her well.
Just a moment. There's something keeps happening here at the platform, that somebody's praying for somebody else out there. I can't find it just at this time. Just keep praying.
Lord, I pray for sister that You'll heal her, in Jesus' Name.
Seems, it's coming from in here. There's someone praying for someone that's a loved one in a hospital that's got colitis. Have faith and believe it. In the Name of Jesus Christ, may they be healed, Lord.
Come, my brother. Lord God, Creator of heavens and earth, Author of Everlasting Life and Giver of every good gift, let Thy blessings rest upon our brother. In Jesus' Name, may he be healed. Amen.
Are you believing? Everyone believing with all your heart? See, sweetly, reverently, but powerfully the Holy Spirit's here. Sometimes we get It confused by saying, that maybe because we got a blessing of the Lord that that's the power of the Lord. No, that's the blessing of the Lord. The power of the Lord is when He's moving, doing something, manifesting Himself. You believe that?
E-74 Lady, setting there with a tumor, praying, you believe that Jesus Christ will make you well? If you believe it, you can have it with all your heart. God bless you, you can go home now and be well.
And that… Out here with the stomach trouble. You believe that God will make you well, setting out there on the end? You believe it? Then you can go home and have yours.
If you can just only believe, God will do great things for you. Don't you believe that? Certainly. Now, how many of you believe with all your heart, that Jesus Christ, the Son of God is setting–is in–is in this meeting? See? This is His manifestation.
I want you to lay hands on one another. Just lay your hands on one another now, all you that's sick.
O Lord, the Creator of heavens and earth, the Author of Everlasting Life, and the Giver of every good gift, we're conscious that Your Spirit is here. The people is just breathing down deep in their lungs, for they know the great Holy Spirit is moving around in this building, that Light that I'm watching, moving like a Pillar of Fire hanging into the building. O Christ, they know that You're here, because You're giving forth the same power, the same blessings. And Satan is trying to hold the people. The only way he can do it is by unbelief. I condemn this unbelief. Satan, you've lost the battle. You're exposed, Satan, come out of this people. In the Name of Jesus Christ, may the devil depart, the devil of unbelief. And may every person here be made whole through Jesus Christ's Name.
E-75 Do you believe with all your heart you're healed? If you do, stand on your feet. Regardless of what your trouble, stand on your feet and give God praise. Stand up. That's it.
Give us a chord, "I Will Praise Him," sister, "I Will Praise Him.' Come on now, everyone.
Real high now, let's lift it up and praise Him for what He's done now.
