My Angel Shall Go Before Thee (53-0213)
E-1 Friends. Very happy to be [Blank.spot.on.tape–Ed.]…
both coming up and going back, so I–I thought, well, there that are
room would be a little short, but we're happy. You know, some of our
most spiritual gatherings has been where two or three are gathered
together, He's there. I'm sure that most all Christians can refer back
in some manner to some time when we had just a little group, just a
little cottage prayer meeting of some sort. It's where I some of my
most blessed times, when the Holy Spirit would really come into our
midst and bless us when we had little small meetings. He has made that
promise that the smallest of church, "two or three gather in My Name
I'll be in their midst."
I wish to read a portion of Scripture tonight, then we'll start and
pray for the people, because they're just a small group of us like this
we ought to immediately come into the realm of God's healing grace and
power and make us well. He promised to do it, and there's hardly
anything that He hasn't left undone to do to reveal His will and His
favor to us, so we just have to believe Him. Is that right?
I wish to read a portion of Scripture tonight in 23rd chapter of
Exodus, beginning with the 20th verse. It's always been a very favorite
spot for me. Said…
do all that I speak; then will I be and enemy to thy enemies, and an
adversary to thy adversaries.
Now, for a thought for a few moments I wish to take that last part, or
the first part of the phrase of the last verse, "My Angel Shall Go
God in all ages has had someone to deal with here on earth. Ever since
He's had an earth, He started, has never was a time but what He was–He
had someone that He could His hands on to send them. And during this
time that we're speaking of here I just read on, was He had sent Moses
to deliver the children of Israel.
Now, it was not Moses that was sent. Moses was just the instrument.
Now, in my heart I have–believe that God has always been the same. All
through the ages, in every age He's been just as He was at the
beginning. He was manifested in the Fatherhood; He was manifested in
the Sonship. He's manifested now in the dispensation of the Holy Spirit.
We're living not in the Christian dispensation, but in the Holy Spirit
dispensation. It's the–the Acts of Holy Spirit in the church, the
church reactions to what the Holy Spirit is in them. Marvelous day
we're living in, greatest time of all ages. We're now living just at
the closing of scene of this world's activities and fixing to enter
into that great age that we've all looked for so long, the Hebrew
prophets had spoke of through the day.
And God always has had someone He could put His hands on. Now, Moses
was borned a proper child. And God ordained that he should bring
the–Israel out under his leadership. And before he went down into
Egypt after he was called when he was on the desert that morning
herding Jethro's sheep, his father-in-law, he saw a bush a burning.
Now, I believe that was the first appearance of the Angel of the Lord.
He was in this burning bush. And then when He commissioned Moses and
told him what he was to do, He went before Him down into Egypt. And
when they came out, He was in a form of a Fire again, a Pillar of Fire.
And this Pillar of Fire led the children of Israel, which was the same
Angel that was in the burning bush; that was the same Pillar of Fire
that was in that burning bush.
And that Pillar of Fire, or the Angel, was the Angel was the covenant.
I believe all ministers would agree with that, that that was the Angel
of the covenant. If it was the Angel of the covenant, then it was the
Lord Jesus; It was God the Holy Spirit. For Moses chose to–to suffer
the reproach of Christ, and counted it greater riches than the
treasures of Egypt. You see? Of Christ… That was Christ the Logos,
the Angel of the covenant that led the children of Israel out of Egypt
to the promised land which was just a foreshadow. As He did in the
natural then, He does in the spiritual today.
Now, He promised to supply all their needs. When they needed water,
they got it from the rock. When they needed food, God rained it down
out of heaven, blowed it in by the wind. And when the waters was
bitter, they made it sweet. And He provided everything they had need
When sickness came into the camp he had an atonement made. He promised
to be the God in the time of trouble, a present Help. He promised to do
these things and to see them through. And now, as He was then in the…
so is He today. The same spirit of God that led Israel leads the church
today, bringing us through as it was the wilderness to the promised
land. We have a promised land, you believe that: "In My Father's house
are many mansions; I go and prepare a place for you, and will come
again and receive you unto Myself." We're on our way. We're going to
this glorious promised land that God has promised us.
Now, along this journey He's promised to supply everything that we have
need of: "Whatsoever you will ask the Father in My Name, that will I
do. Whatsoever things (Mark 11:24)… Whatsoever things you desire,
when you pray, believe you receive it, you shall have it." Now, He gave
us the strongest weapon that there is in all the world, and that's
prayer. Prayer is what changes things. The Christian doesn't realize
what a force he has when he kneels on his knees before Almighty God in
the Name of Jesus Christ. He doesn't realize what–what power that is.
If the people could only realize that the–that what is given right
unto them, anything that you ask for will be given if you can
appropriate the faith to believe it. For God's Word is true.
And now, God's Word will defeat Satan anywhere, any place, any time.
Now, when Jesus was here on earth, I–I believe He was, well, He was
Emmanuel. God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself. So all
the great qualities of the Father was in Christ Jesus the Son when He
was here on earth. All the Father has was His. And all the fine gifts
that's in God, and all that was, was in Christ. But when He met Satan,
He never used any of those gifts. He, just to be your example, He
brought it to where the very weakest of Christians… He said… Now,
He–He had the power right then to rebuke Satan and send Him away. But
what He did, He never referred to any of His power.
Satan said, "If thou be the son of God…" There's always a question
mark across God's Word by Satan. So he said, "If thou be the son of
God, command these stones to be made bread."
Now, Jesus said, "It is written, in the Father's Word, man shall not live by bread alone."
He taken Him up on top of the–the temple and said–told Him to cast
Hisself down. Jesus said, "It is written…" right back to the
Then He taken Him up on a mountain, showed all the kingdoms of the
world, and said, "I'll give to you if you'll bow down and worship me."
Jesus said, "It is written…" See, constantly, "It is written; it is written."
And then when you can hit Satan with the Scripture, he's just as
powerless as he can be. See? Well, if anything, I don't care what it
is… Now, it isn't with in me or your pastor to pray… It's for us to
pray with you, But it'll have to be your own individual faith that does
the healing. Now, the only… Jesus never healed anyone without first
the Father showed Him about it. Now, He said that as we had it last
night in John the 5th chapter and the 19th verse. "Verily, verily, I
say unto you. The Son can do nothing in Himself, but what He sees the
Watch two blind men follow Him one day in the street. They were blind,
crying, "Have mercy on us. Have mercy on us." He just walked right on.
He came into the house, and they brought the blind man to Him. And the
blind man said, "Have mercy on us."
He said, "Do you believe?"
He said, "Yes."
He touched their eyes, said, "According to your faith…" Is that
right? "Accord–according to your faith, be it unto you." See? And they
had the faith.
The woman touched the hem of His garment, He said, "Thy faith (not My
power), thy faith has made thee whole." See, see? "Thy faith…" See,
what… But He went and did just what the Father showed Him.
Now, His Spirit is with us today. It reveals what the Father shows.
It's already done. Your prayer, for instance, out there be praying. You
be sitting out there a praying, and what the Father would decide and
your faith would move up into a bracket and say, "Yes, I believe it
right now. I accept it right now. I believe it right now."
Now, the Father could turn right around to me and say, "Tell him I
heard him and he had a certain thing, and it's over." See? But I
couldn't do that myself. I could only say it was over if He'd tell me
it was over. See? See what I mean?
Now, that shows He's the same yesterday, today… I can pray for you,
and according to your faith be it unto you. But if He tells me
something to tell you, I can take a message through a Divine gift
there, and tell you what He said. Just like in different people; you've
heard the testimonies. I try not to get the testimonies, 'cause Mr.
Baxter gets to them sometimes; I get right back on the same one. Many
has heard the thousands of testimonies around the world of what He's
did: great men, Congressman Upshaw, and them, and different ones, of
Florence Nightingale. Then when they were healed (You see?), He would
speak and say a certain thing, and I… No matter what it is, it'll be
that way every time.
Now, you take it anywhere you want to, any person's at liberty that
anytime that they ever heard it say, "THUS SAITH THE LORD" or "in the
Name of the Lord" a certain thing would take place, it'll be just that
way. See? Or you can trace back any of my footsteps across the nations
and see if it ever one time ever spoke, "THUS SAITH THE LORD" and
predicted something but what didn't come just exactly that way. It's
The first time it happened, 'course I was just a small baby. I was just
three minutes old, about, when It came in. But down through life, every
time, even before I was converted… Gifts and callings are without
repentance. You know that. That's where I think that many of the… And
see, I'm new in the Pentecostal church. I come from the Baptist church.
And then the Baptist people couldn't see that there was a Divine gift.
The Pentecostal people believed it. So there's where God sent me.
There's where I feel at home. I am one of you (See?), because I have
received the Holy Ghost, and then God made the thing manifest to me; I
started off. But from the–the part itself, has been since a baby.
Gifts and callings are without repentance. You believe in that? If you
believe the Scripture…
Jesus Christ was foreordained the Son of God. He was the woman's Seed
that was to bruise the serpent's head from the garden of Eden. You
believe that? Moses couldn't help he was Moses. He was borned a proper
child. They seen he was and knowed he was. And God raised him right up
under Pharaoh's nose, didn't he? Is that right? He couldn't help it.
John the Baptist, seven hundred and twelve years before he was born, he
was the voice of one crying in the wilderness. Is that right?
Jeremiah, the prophet, God said, "Before you was even formed in your
mother's womb, I knew you, and sanctified you, and ordained you a
prophet over the nations." Is that right? Before he ever come from his
mother's womb… See, gifts and callings are without repentance. See?
God gives them. You can't help 'cause you have blue eyes, all "who,
taking thought can add one cubit to his statue." Therefore the thing
has got out into the world today with a bunch of "ism," you see, and it
absolutely, it's nothing but a work of Satan to try to take away from
the real thing of God. And that's what you Pentecostal people and what
all people, Baptists and so forth, has had down through the age, is
somebody trying to impersonate something that they know nothing about.
It be better to keep still. "Who, taking thought, can add one cubit to
his statue." If God wants you to be a certain thing, He brings you to
this earth to be that, and you'll be it. See?
If He called you to be a–do a thing, like a man said, "Well, I believe
I can make more money if I was a preacher." You'll never make a
preacher. God has to call you to be a preacher. How can a preacher
preach 'less the Lord has sent him. Is that right? It's all in God.
Everything moves right back into God. Is that right? Everything right
back to Him, He sets the program. We just fall in line (You see?), and
carry it out.
Now, a few years ago, it was firmly not believed by any people, that
there was any other light besides the sunlight. Critics and scientific
world once laughed and said, "Didn't God make an awful mistake when He
wrote the Bible?" Said, "He said He made the–created the firmament
before He made the sun." Said, "The very idea. There's no such a thing
as any light outside of sunlight, that He made the firmament before He
made the sun." And how the apostle said your whole body's full of
light. Well, science looked down with the spirit of meekness and
consideration, and dug into it, and proved that God was right. Now,
there's plenty of light beside the sunlight.
For instance, the x-ray. That's not no–has no sun to do with it. But
your whole body, each little cell, little atom is a light. You're made
up full of light. They find out that the Bible's right, that you're
made full of light, because scientists, not looking at it from a
natural standpoint, you can't understand it. Spiritual things are
spiritually discerned. So but they prove that the Bible was right.
And not long ago, there was a man who really believed that there–that
electricity could be harnessed. He got him a kite, and he ceased with a
key on the end of the tail of it, but he finally captured what he
thought, what he believed was right, because… People laughed at him,
but he, in his heart there was something there told him that it was
right. So he stayed right with it.
A little later on, Thomas Edison, the man who gave us electric in the
lamp, he believed that that electronic or electrolysis would carry over
a wire. Ten thousand wires, I guess he used. He used this kind of a
metal. It wouldn't work. Set there at night time, a cup of coffee and a
sandwich and tireless as he could be, but yet down in his heart
something told him that he could make that electricity heat a wire that
would light. Well now, he didn't just give up on the first little wire.
He just laid it aside and tried another one.
But we, not we… We who are in contact with the spiritual realm of
God, we… "Well, I was prayed for and didn't get me healed, so I guess
there's nothing to it." Oh, what a poor crow bait you make for God.
See? Look. No, sir. God wants somebody who will not give up. A winner
never quits and a quitter never wins. You've got to stay and call it,
call things right before Satan. Tell him "It's this a way. THUS SAITH
THE LORD. The Lord has said so and that It is written. It's written."
No matter what he says, "it's written," right there.
"Well, Brother Branham never got to touch me."
"It is written." Brother Branham never done no healing. God done your
healing. It's already did. "It's written. Whatever I ask and believe
God, I shall receive it. It's mine, my personal property."
Then Edison, hour after hour, something in his heart… They never had
no electricity before, but–to light a light, but Edison believed that
it would do it. And finally he conquered it, because something in his
heart said it'll do it. And as long as there's something in here saying
that it'll do it, there's got to be something out there to respond to
that. That's right.
What would your great grandfather have said when he talked to the
neighbor about a television, a wave, vibrating through the air like
that, would even make the picture. Why, he'd have said, "He's mentally
upset," but somebody believed that there was an airwave. And he
couldn't explain it. God had it here. Now, how did he think of being a
airwave. We've got it: we got television, haven't we? Sure we have.
Radio and so forth. How was it? Because something down in the human
heart said, "It's there." And it broke into that realm, and picked it
up, and brought it out here and give it to the world.
Now, brother, sister, you can call a fanatic if you want to, but I know
that there is a power of God. First thing, because God said so. Second
thing, because in my heart there's something in there that says that
there's a power of God to heal every sickness. I believe it. And as
long as I believe that, I'll spend my life (See?), that I know that
it's the truth. It's God's Word first, and there's something in my
heart telling me, "It's there." And I'm searching every wire,
everywhere, trying to find a place that we can get it into church.
Fanatics may rise and go, but God… You'll see the day, that the
church of Jesus Christ will stand to its feet with this great power
that they're laughing at us about today. It'll be brought forth just
like electricity was, 'cause there's something down in the human heart
says it's there. See? It's the same Angel of God.
Now look. David said, "When the deep calleth to the deep…" If there's
a deep calling to a deep, there's got to be a deep to respond to that
Here, as I've often used the illustration, before a fin was on a fish's
back, there had to be a water first for him to swim in or he wouldn't
have had no fin. Is that right? Before there was a tree, a flower to
bloom in the earth, there had to be an earth first for it to–the
flower to set in, or there'd been no flower. Is that right?
Now, here not–some time ago, I read where a little baby had… Brother
Baxter was telling me one the other day, that a little baby kept
craving salt, salt, salt. And they taken the salt away from the baby,
wouldn't let him have it. The baby died. They held a post-mortem, and
come to find out there was something in the baby's body that had to
have that salt. And they put it in there and it just dissolved the salt
up. See? If they give the baby salt, if…
Here, I read where the little baby eat the erasers off of pencils. And
he eat the pedal off of a bicycle. Well, they wondered… They give a
little boy an examination, and come to find out that his little body
needed sulfur. There's sulfur in rubber. See? There's a sulfur,
something in here calling for sulfur, he's going to nibble till he
finds it somewhere. And it shows there's something in here calling for
sulfur. There's got to be a sulfur to respond to that call. Do you know
what I mean? Deep calling to the deep…
Now, as long as there's something down in our hearts… How many here
believes in Divine healing? All right. Then as sure… Look… Be… As
sure as there is a call down in there, a desire to be healed of God by
Divine healing, there's got to be a fountain open somewhere.
See?…?… 'Fore that creation can be in there, that creation to make
you desire that, there has to be a Creator to create that creation. Is
that right? Well, there's got to be God then somewhere, that's putting
that desire in your heart to desire that. And if He has put that desire
there, then there's got to be something out there to fulfill that
desire that you got. Do you see? The deep calling to the deep… And
somewhere out here, someday you'll find out, and we're all going to see
it, that God's going to have a church that's going to break into that
yonder, brother, and all them marvelous things that once belonged into
the church of the living God that's been throwed aside, is going to
stand on its feet someday and take a journey up through the sky.
Oh, I've seen that for years, my brother and sister, and tonight, I
believe it's the same Holy Spirit that led the children of Israel, is
leading us up into that waters, yonder, somewhere. People can't
understand it, but it's there. As long as a human heart calls for it,
there's got to be something there to respond to it. The deep calls to
the deep. "I'll send My Angel before you to lead you into the way."
The trouble of it is, we try to get ahead of the Angel. Let the Angel
lead the way, and He will lead us to the fountains of the water of Life
and give it to us freely. Do you believe it? Shall we bow our heads.
Lord Jesus, tonight, just here, we're thankful for this little church.
We thank You for its pastor, and for its teachers, and for its pupils.
And we thank You for every minister and his congregation, the parts of
them that's gathered in here tonight. Some of them out in the other
rooms, we thank Thee for them. But above all things, we thank Thee for
Jesus Christ Who has drawed us together by His mercy, by His merit. We
thank Thee, Father, with a true sincere heart.
Now, I pray that You'll be with us tonight. Help us and bless us. And
as my heart and other hearts here blending together, calling for the
deep, the Deep… And men and women setting here that's Your children
that's afflicted by the enemy… As our Brother Baxter, the–Your
teacher, just awhile ago, standing there on the steps listening at him,
hear him speaking, casting out evil spirits. How we thank Thee, Lord,
that Thy Word teaches that, "In My Name they shall cast out devils…
If they lay their hands on the sick they shall recover." You promised
Now, Father, we pray that You'll just pull back the curtain tonight.
Just open up them circles and dimensions, yonder, Lord, to us, that the
great Holy Spirit might fill every heart with faith tonight, and we
might go out of this building tonight, without a feeble one in the
midst of us. May we go out rejoicing, happy, healed, filled with the
Spirit, and may there be an old fashion revival start here in the city,
Lord, that'll sweep city-wide. Grant it, Father, and many be saved. For
we ask it in Christ's Name. Amen.
E-21 [Brother Branham speaks to someone–Ed.]…?…
go ahead with these…?… All right. You see, it's kind of a hard
thing, friend, for us to determine how praying for the sick. Brother
Baxter, I guess you've explain that to them how that we have to give
out cards in order to keep a orderly line. We try to say, "Well now,
let these just so many here come, or go back there and get so many
there." You'd say, "Uh-huh, there you are. You got a respects…" So we
just give everybody cards and there we just start along through them
somewhere and call them out.
Now, I believe you said you give out from 50 to a 100 in what? From 1
to a 100 in "H." Well, lets start, take 50, 60… How many can we line
up here, about 10? Sir? All right. Let's try 15 then. All right, we'll
take 8, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, on up, 50, 55, 60, 65, about first fifteen.
And we'll begin at H-50. Who's got H-50, prayer card H-50? 51, 52, 53,
54, that's right, line right up here. Just come right down on this side
if you will and line up. And we may not be able to get to all of them.
We'll do as best we can.
And now, I want each and everyone of you to be deeply and sincerely in
prayer. Will you do that? All right, while they're coming, I see a–a
young man setting here before me. He's very badly afflicted; I wish God
would heal the man or give something to us, some revelation. While I'm
here I'd like to see… I've seen worse than that, that our Lord has
Now, the boy probably has been prayed for several times. That I don't
know. But if God would just speak and tell me something to tell him,
you pray that He will you? I–I hope that He will. I seen the boy last
night, and my heart went out for him, and I.. Now, he might tell me
that–it's what purpose, what's the reason, what caused it, what'll do
it. I don't know. See? That's up to God. I–I just have to do as He
tells me to do. He might tell him, he's made well. If he is, that–that
settles it. If He tells me He'd never be well, it'll–it'll never be.
It'll just be just as he said. See? I couldn't… But I don't know, I'm
just watching the boy, keeping my eye on him, and I do on everyone.
Now, the Angel of the Lord… How many's ever seen the picture of It?
Let's see your hands. On… That picture that halo of light like that
taken down there? Many of you have. I believe we have some of them
left. And we are… All right, 50 to 65. Turn your prayer cards over,
friend. Look on the back of it. You'll find there's a…?… 50 to 65.
If you will, there's about, is not–they're not all all lined up. 50 to
65, if you'll line up here we'll try our best to do what we can. 50 to
65, is that H? Was it H-50? All right. All right.
And now, the rest of you, just hold your card, now maybe if we can get
through this number here, maybe we can call another number, and we'll
take a little farther up in them, like that. Just around, we're always
try to see that everybody's under the place while we're praying so that
everybody can be prayed for. And now, but we… Look on your card; now
you count them, Brother Baxter, if you see… And if there's a–and
there's somebody maybe that's deaf or something, and, well, wouldn't
come, just look around on somebody's card that set… And it's
about–it's just about setting next to you or something… And now, the
people coming up here is no assurance… (Okay…)
All right, if the that's coming up here is no assurance that these
people's going to be healed, not a thing. They're just simply standing
here. But the only assurance there is, is how much faith you have in
God. Your faith is what does it.
Now, I want each one of you that's in–in these aisles tonight to
settle down, be quiet, and pray. And I want you to–to pray with the
deepest of sincerity. I want you to pray, believing that God will
reveal and will heal you where you're sitting or standing, or back in
here, wherever you are. Just believe; that's all I ask you to do. Just
have faith in God.
Now, I'm–I'm your brother, and I'm just here for one purpose, and–and
that's to help you. And the only way I can help you is to get you to
see what Jesus Christ has already done for you.
Now, before we start to pray, let me say this to this audience back
here, everywhere. My brethren and sisters, Jesus Christ has already
healed every person that's here in this city. Every person here that's
sick tonight, you're already healed, and every sinner that's in the
building if you're here, you're sins are already forgiven you. The only
thing you have to do, is to accept what has been done. Then when you
accept it, you accept Him as your Saviour, but He doesn't come down die
afresh for you; He just… You just accept what He has done, and
through that you are saved. Is that right? And the same thing by
healing. I believe that's right, Brother Baxter.
And–and brethren that is truth, isn't it? Yes. It's already, the work.
Jesus Christ finished the work and paid the price of complete
redemption at Calvary when He died. Now, we have to look up there and
believe it. Whatever you ask, believe you receive it; that's settles
it. Now, have faith.
And the only thing that… Now, here's these ministers here, back here
behind me, and my own manager here, Brother Baxter. Now, they could
explain the Word probably where I couldn't even touch it. They're…
God has called them for that. See? And if you'll just believe what
they're telling you, that's what does it. It'll do just exactly the
same; it's God's Word.
Now, after that the love of God has sent gifts into the church. Now, I
believe and tonight that the Holy Spirit could speak to a certain
person through unknown tongues, and another one out there could give
the interpretation and tell just exactly to this person here or
somebody else just what to do, just what their trouble and what's
they're the… Don't you believe that? Well, that's a Divine gift
that's in the church. Now, but if He says that, it'll be just exactly
that way if it's the Holy Spirit. It'll be just exactly the way He said
it. That's a gift.
Then He sent, first He sent prophets, teachers, evangelists, and… Is
that right? Gifts of tongues, interpretation, it's all for the edifying
of the church. Is that right? All for to edify the church, God has set
them in the church. Who has? Not because somebody laid hands on you,
but because God has, not man has. God has set in church. He give…
All right, bring the lady. Now, these people coming are perfect
strangers. And now, I want you, everyone tonight to do this for me,
'cause I just have… See, I'm waiting a call to Africa, and that might
be any time. And I don't know just how many nights my–we can stay at
any place, 'cause it–He might… My life is given to Him. He could
call me in ten minutes from now, and send me to Australia; I'd take out
(See?), just where it's at.
And while we're here, I want you to get all the superstitions away from
you, settle everything down, and make yourself subject to the Holy
Spirit, that God can move through you, and you'll get the benefit of
God's blessings for you. That's what I've come to you. I've moved down
like this and saying, "Now, God, You help me. And let the people all
believe and so I can minister to them. And when I leave the city, the
glory of God will be everywhere, and the people will be praising our
dear Lord Jesus, Whom we dearly love with all of our heart and working
for His vineyard.
Now, in the Divine Spirit, providence of God is this–the gift of
seeing and foreknowing, and knowing what was, and what will be, that's
nothing to heal; it's only to edify Jesus Christ to bring His Word
back, saying, "The things that I did, shall you also," (See?) what the
Father would show.
Now, I believe this lady standing here… I–I do not know you, do I,
lady? I've never seen as far I know of. We're perfect strangers, never
seen you in my life. Then, well, if I don't know you and probably you
raised hundreds and hundreds of miles down here, probably, then it's…
And then when come down here to–to talk to you, why, me raised up in
Indiana, probably you down in Florida. Well, then when we come together
to talk to one another, we've been miles apart, but God's knowed you
since before you were born. He's knowed me since before I was born.
And now, I–I believe you're a Christian; I–I… Because your spirit
seems to be welcome (You see?) it just… When a–when a Christian
comes, there's just something that's just says welcome. You see? And
I–I get that right away. It's a Holy Spirit. But now, if me knowing
nothing of you, and miles apart all of our life, the Holy Spirit would
have to–would do something that would make you know that the Presence
of His Being is here, then it'd make you have more confidence that I
told the truth.
I want to get close… I just… 'Course you know what I'm doing now;
I'm just contacting your spirit. See? But I–I… In talking to you, I
want you to believe this (See?), that God knows all things, and what
it's trying to do, is to get you in condition to receive Him as your
Healer (See, see?), just something stimulate the faith that's–that's
in you. For 'cause being a Christian, it's there, but it may be laying
dormant. See? And now, just to talk to you for a few moments to
kindly… Being the first patient, it's always just a… I would like
first to take time to the patient, till I know that His Presence there,
then I just praying for the people, because they'll–if they'll halfway
believe, they'll get a blessing (You see?), if they–they'll just
But the Angel of the Lord that Brother Baxter was telling about
tonight, in His Presence now, if–if He be standing near here, then He
will–He knows you, and He knows me. And then if there's something
wrong with you, some sickness, then that absolutely… You listened to
the afternoon services and so forth. That is a demon. All sickness is
of the devil. You can't pin that on God. See? It's of the devil.
Well, then if–if that be a spirit… Now, both of us here are spirits,
just the same as we're natural, we're supernatural. And then if you be
a Christian woman and me a Christian man, and then in you is a
something, a–a spirit of sickness, and then God has sent me as your
brother. See? And I talk to you and I tell that He told me to go pray
for the people; now, that's all. Said, "If you'll get the people to
believe you, be sincere when you pray, nothing will stand before the
prayer." Now, that's the thing: be sincere when I pray, and get the
people to believe.
Well, I questioned out of illiteracy, I was–had grammar school
education, just to seventh grade, how would I get the people to believe
He said, "As Moses was given two signs of a vindication," and begin to
speak… You know the story goes, I believe. Now, do you believe that
that's the truth? Now, if He will reveal to me what is wrong with you
or something another about your life, that you know that I know nothing
about, then you'll believe that that's a true sign that God sent me
here to pray for you. Is that right?
All right, I just want you to look–look, just keep looking to me and
believing. I tell you, Christian friends, it–it's a quite a problem.
See, you got spirit all around. In my–in my auditorium meetings I
never have no one behind me (See?), no one around like that, or nowhere
but out this one way, so I can keep my back this way to look the
patient straight. But, see, there's sick people setting back in there.
See, and just soon I… This woman, just as soon as it starts to coming
in, it's moving from everywhere (You see?), and you have watch or get
tangled up. But it has to break, single down to a vision to know. And
see, there's people setting there that's sick, here sick, here, here,
back around here, and all around, stand in front of me. But I pray that
God will be merciful.
You–you're… Yeah, you're suffering with a… There's something
wrong. It's a–it's–it's–it's cancer. Is that right? Isn't that
right? You just had an examination of that. And wasn't that on the
breast? Is that right? Now, let's just see if I'm right. Wasn't it on
the left breast. Is that right? I seen the doctor when he was moving
that thing around over you, kind of a tall fellow was looking down.
Say, you didn't… You're not from Florida. You're from New York. Is
that right? Is that true? All right. I seen you around a lake or
something another, up in there, place. Is that true? I know the
country. Come here just a moment. You believe that's the truth, that
God sent me for you to be well? O God, have mercy; I pray that You'll
be kind to this poor little woman and will heal her and will make her
well. And now, as Your servant, knowing that she, if You don't touch
her, Lord, in some way, she can't stay on the earth much longer. Lord,
we need her. We need her–her here and she's our sister, and I pray
sincerely now that her faith will mount up, way up, on up above all
sickness, above all that I pronounce…?… the glory of God. And from
this very hour may she start mending, to get well. I say, "Cursed be
the cancer." In Name of Jesus Christ, may it leave her body, and may
she go home a well woman, serve God. In Jesus Name. Amen. God bless
you, sister. Are you going to get well? You believe with all your life.
Oh, God bless you…?… Raise…?… "I accept my healing."
All right. How do you do, lady? Come. How, it's the… Your little
baby? Well, he's a fine little… I see he's a breaking out on his
face. Uh-huh. Oh, that's too bad. Now, don't… Now, that ain't
bothering me a bit. See, that's all right…?… I imagine that's a
kind of eczema on his face. Is that right? Do you believe what you've
heard to be the truth? You do that. Your baby has something else too,
doesn't he? Kind of asthmatic condition. Is that right?
Say, you're suffering too. You have some kind of a choking spirit. I–I
believe it's a inward goiter or something that causes you to choke. Is
that right? Say, another thing. You need Jesus Christ as your Saviour.
Isn't that right? You're not a Christian. You want to become a
Christian now? Raise up your hand and signify to Jesus that you want to
Almighty God, this poor young mother standing here holding her baby,
and we are taught that all things are working together for good. God,
heal her; take away the goiter off of her throat. Take it away, Lord,
and heal this darling little baby. Save her soul from a life of sin.
May she go home tonight rejoicing, happy, and they both get well and
serve You all the days of their life as she's accepted You now before
this audience. You said, "If you will testify of Me before men, I'll
proclaim you before the Father." We thank Thee, Lord, that Thou has
taken her and has saved her and has healed her, in Jesus Christ's Name.
God bless you, sister. You are my sister now. Your sins are forgiven
you; your healed. The baby's going to be all right. Go in peace, and
God be with you.
All right, come. Have you believed? Why not be healed? No matter what
would come, what would go, God has now a vindicated Himself. He's here
present. Who is these people? There's been two or three come by. I
never seen them in my life. I know nothing about them, never heard of
them or seen them in my life. And you have to admit that there's
something here. You'll have to admit it's in the supernatural realm.
Now, believe. It's the Spirit of Jesus Christ, the same One that knew
where some mules were tied, the same One that said to Philip when he
came with Nathanael, He said, "Behold an Israelite, in whom there is no
He said, "Why, when did You know me?"
He said, "Before Philip called you, when you under the tree." Why, he never tried to say now…
The Jews said, "Oh, he's just a good fortuneteller, Beelzebub."
But Philip said, "Thou art the Son of God, the King of Israel."
"We know that no man could do these things except God be with him."
Well now, if you're in here and not a full Gospel people and you got
little superstition about you, get it out of your way. These people are
not crazy; they've got the Spirit of God upon them. They're foolish to
the world, but It's the Spirit of God moving right into them. I was
once in your condition. But God moved me in with people who believe.
Now, get away from that doubting and things you got in your heart and
believe and you shall also receive and be glory–have glory of God.
Here's a woman standing me; is–it's the Spirit here. I don't know the
lady. I never seen her in my life. But you're a Christian (Isn't that
right?), filled with the Holy Spirit, was real excited the time when it
happened. Is that right? And you're suffering now with a tubercular
condition and that's in bowels. Is that right? Is that the Christ that
was that… Now, the Lord Jesus healed you, lady, and you'll be well.
Go and get well…?… Christ. Amen.
Come. Now…?… Have faith in God. Believe Him and He will bring it to
pass. Come…?… Do you believe? Only thing you have to do is have
faith. Believe God and God shall bring it to pass.
Somebody's praying. Oh, what the Holy Spirit could do just–just this
minute (See?), what He could do if people would just let Him. You're
trying to get healed right there. You're looking at me just trying your
best to pray to get healed. I–I couldn't heal you, my brother, but you
look at me and I can tell you what's wrong with you. I'll ask you this,
you setting there a stranger to me. If God will reveal to me what's
wrong with you, will you accept your healing? You will? You have a
rupture. Is that right? All right, stand up and accept your healing
then and get well. God bless you.
All right. All right. Do you believe me to be His servant, brother?
I–I believe you believe that. Yes, sir. And–and only God, only God
alone. I never seen you in my life. But there's a… The Holy Spirit's
here now (See?), the One Who I–I know what it… I know Who–I know
Who I have believed. And I know that He told me. And I believe every
Word that said. Say, by the way, I can see a pulpit stand between me
and you. You're a minister of the Gospel. Is that right? And don't you
have something wrong with your throat? Is that–isn't that right? Raise
up your hand. All right.
Almighty God, heal this Your servant; and may this leave him and go
away from him tonight. And may he now, Father, be made whole. May it go
in the Name of Jesus Christ. May he preach the Gospel greater than ever
before in His life. In Jesus' Name. Amen. God bless you. God bless you.
You believe with all your heart? Have faith in God. Don't doubt; just
believe. You in the line there, you wouldn't have to come in the line
if you just believe. You out there, you won't have to come in no line
if you just believe, have faith. I seen a… Where'd that man go I just
prayed for just then? Back there. I seen a pulpit a lying in here just
a few minutes ago, but there's a woman standing behind it. Oh, it's
the… Aren't you a lady minister there, have something wrong with your
lung, don't you, sister? Isn't there lung trouble or something in that,
along with your lungs. Is that right? Do you believe with all your
heart God will make you well? All right, stand up and accept your
healing then, in the Name of the Lord Jesus.
All right. Come. Lady, do you believe with all your heart? If I be
God's servant, then God is here. Is that right? If I wasn't telling the
truth, God would never testify of a thing. Is that right? God only
testifies of His gift. If I've proclaimed that and it's wrong, then God
never sent me. If I tell it's the truth, you have a right to doubt me,
but not God. Then it's God now. It isn't me no more now; I was just
testifying awhile ago. But now He's testifying. You want to get over
those kidney stones? You do? All right, then go, and may the Lord Jesus
make you well and heal you in Jesus Christ's Name may it be…?…
Let's say, "Praise be to God."…?…
All right. You believe, sister? Do I… Like to see that heart beating
right again? Would you? Raise up your hand, and it'll do it. In the
Name of the Lord Jesus may she go and be healed in Jesus' Name. Amen.
Now, go believing. Go believing. Just go find your…?… go and
believe God for. He will…?… the work.
All right, bring the lady. Come, lady. You'd also like to get over a
heart trouble, wouldn't you, sister. You raise up your hand say, "I
accept it right now." In the Name of the Lord Jesus…?… Amen.
All right, come. Just happens to be you have a female trouble and also
a heart trouble. Isn't that right? Raise up your hand and say, "I thank
God for my healing." Go on…?… go, believing, having faith.
Come, lady. Are you believing? Say, lady, setting right over there, do
you want to get over that high blood pressure, setting on the end? If
you do, stand up. Just then it left you just then, lady, if you'll just
keep believing you'll always be over it. God bless you. Have faith.
All right, sister, do you believe me to be God's prophet? Standing
between you and I is a table. You're moving back from it, from that
table, because you have a stomach trouble. It's a peptic ulcer in the
stomach. Is that right? All right. Lord Jesus, I pray that You'll heal
her, and may she go from here tonight and be made well, in the Name of
Jesus Christ. Amen. Go. He said it, now believe Him; keep praising God.
You each one can be healed, if you'll just believe. The Presence of the
Lord is near. The Presence of the Lord is here to heal you. Do you
believe, lady? You want to get over that asthmatic condition you have?
Say, "Praise God for healing me." Go, believe it with all your heart
and God will bring it to pass. Have faith…?…
You believe, lady? Like to get over the arthritis? Raise up your hand,
say, "Lord, I'm free." You lay these canes down, as you go off the
platform rejoicing saying, "Thanks to God." [Blank.spot.on.tape–Ed.]
You have mental troubles, distress; late of a evening when the sun
starts going down you start getting real nervous. Isn't that right?
You're all tore up. You're in the menopause; it's 'cause you to have a
stomach condition that you can't eat things: turns to acid. Is that
right? Raise up your hand, say, "I believe You, Lord." Go…?… now
rejoicing, saying, "Praise be to God." All right. Let's say, "Praise
In the Name of the Lord Jesus, may you go and be healed in Jesus' Name. Amen. Say, "Thanks be to God." All right.
You believe, lady? In the Name of Lord Jesus may you go and be healed
and made whole, through Jesus Christ's Name. Amen. Let's say, "Praise
be to God."
Now's the time the Presence of the Lord is here to heal. The waters is
troubled. Now's the time to step in; this is the truth. God is
vindicating the truth. Why can't you at this time? Look here. You don't
have… The thing you have to do is have faith. You feel different,
don't you? That's right.
Lady, you setting there in a chair there, look. Or you don't have to
come up here. You believe? You believe me to be His prophet?
Then if it's so, why, you don't have to be standing here. I could tell
you setting there. Is that right? You have female trouble. Isn't that
right? It an abscess on the ovary. Raise up hand. If any of you
got–any got female trouble, raise up your hand. Is that right. Now,
turn around and go on back off the line and get well. Let's say,
"Praise be to God."
Don't you believe He'd heal you right now, if you'd accept it? Let's
stand and…?… it then, to your feet everywhere. Now, let's pray.
Let's raise our hands. Let's…?… God alone…
Dear Jesus, we thank You…?… be to my heart… May the Spirit fall.
May You heal every one of them. May they go from this building tonight
rejoicing and happy…?…
