Obey The Voice Of The Angel (50-0713)
Good evening, audience. A privilege to be here tonight, to begin our
first night in the prayer line, to pray for the needy, those who are
suffering and afflicted. I trust to God that it'll prove to be a great
blessing through this week.
There's many of you that's in need. I'm here to try to do all that I
can for you in the way of praying for you. There's no one that can heal
you except God. He's the only One that can help you. And all that we
can do is pray. And through the ministry that He has given me, He has
blessed it. I've tried to be humble and tried to minister, just the
best of my knowledge to the people.
And I'm very happy tonight to start the prayer line here in–in
Minneapolis. And I desire all of you to pray for me while I'm praying
for others, and have faith and believe that what I tell you is the
truth. Most all of you, oh, I guess, in here, and the manager has been
explained the way, they… it came to me and was ministered by an
Angel, Who one night walked into the room. When I was a little boy, it
started. It would talk to me down through life.
One time when I was about seven years old, it came out of a bush. A
whirlwind was whirling in the bush, and it said for me never to drink,
or to smoke, or defile my body; there was something for me to do.
Now, my people were formerly Catholic and there was not very much
that–that they knew about it, and they just kept those things down.
And about four days after that, it appeared to me and a strange feeling
came upon me, as it always does, and I seen the municipal bridge, at
Jeffersonville, cross, come up out of the wilderness on the hill where
I was standing, and crossed the river. I seen sixteen men fall off of
it. They put that down and twenty-two years from that day, the
municipal bridge spanned the river at the same place and sixteen men
lost their life on it. And just things like that.
It's nothing I can do in myself. It's just what He shows me, is all I
can speak. Only thing that any true man of God could ever say, but what
God would put in his mouth to say. Outside of that, it would totally be
a failure. And when It met me, many times, and told many things which I
probably get a chance after while, to tell you in one of the meetings.
But the last time it appeared just before going out… I always worked.
I become the pastor of the little Baptist church at Jeffersonville,
which still stands today. I never would take up an offering. I never
took an offering, in my life. And I didn't believe… And I was able to
work, and why couldn't I work. And I was the Indiana state game warden.
And one day I just come from patrol, and I walked into the… my place,
and I was praying that night about one o'clock, between one and three.
And I noticed in my room, a Light begin to spread across the floor. And
I wondered where It come from. I looked up, and that same Light that
appears in the meeting, It…
I've perhaps have already showed you the picture of It. Now they've
took It with cameras, and so forth, while It was in the meeting. [Brother Branham coughs–Ed.] Pardon me.
It was spreading out across the floor, and come walking to my right…
It always comes from my right side. That's the reason I start the
prayer line from that side. And It always comes from the right.
Frankly, It's here right now. And then when a… Just when I was saying
that, I–I knew it come near. Then–then It come to me, I seen a Man
come, walking. He was barefooted. He had on a white garment like a
robe, and He had dark hair, to His shoulders. He had dark eyes. He was
smooth faced, and kind of a dark complected. He walked up to me, had
His arms folded in this manner. He looked down at me. And I was biting
my fingers, and I was real nervous. And He said, "Do not fear."
And just as He said, "Do not fear," I knew it was the same voice that
had always spoke to me, but that was the first time I'd ever seen Him.
I knew that had been what had talked to me since I was a little boy.
And He said, "I'm sent from the Presence of God, to tell you that
you're to take a gift of Divine healing to the people of the nations."
I said, "Sir, people won't believe me. I'm uneducated. I can't go."
He said, "I will be with you."
And I said, "They won't believe me."
He said, "There'll be two signs given to you, to have the people to
believe you, as it was to the prophet, Moses." Said, "First, you'll be
able to detect diseases by contacting the–the person by their hand."
Said, "If you be reverent and sincere, it'll come to pass that you'll
tell them the things that they've done in their heart, and the secret
sins that they had, the diseases, and everything." Said, "By this they
will know then that your work is true," what has been said.
But for about a year, that went on that way; and then about two years,
it was. And then the other part of the gift was manifested, some ten,
twelve, about ten months ago, I guess.
And I said to Him; I said, "Well, I will go."
And He said, "I will be with you." And He disappeared out of the room.
And I started out. Those things have been happening. And, 'course, many
times, newspapers say, "Divine healer." That isn't so, friends. I can't
help because papers and people say that. No one can help what anyone
says about you, unless you're guilty. But I've never been guilty of
calling myself a Divine healer. I only pray for the sick. And Jesus
Christ, the Son of God, is the Healer. He's the One that heals.
Now, I only pray, and these signs and wonders are done. It's not me
that does them. It's your Saviour that does it. And what I want every
man and woman, boy and girl, to believe during this meeting, that these
signs and wonders are not done by man. They are done by Jesus Christ to
vindicates His Presence here with you people. And He's here to help
every one of you. As people have lost their faith, kind of, in God; and
he comes down to do these things to–to manifest Hisself to the people.
I wish you'd be reverent while I'm praying. It's not a excitable
matter. It's reverent, and we must approach God with a true sincere
heart, and just as reverent as you can be. And obey–when I ask you to
bow your head, I want you to do it, now that is while I'm praying. I
respect that anywhere. And then when I… when… if the Lord performs
some miracle, you'll be able to see it, for I will ask you then to
raise your head. And if you'll obey and–and do as I ask you to do, I
will assure you that God will bless you.
And then I don't… I'm a stranger to you people, and you don't know
me. I don't know you. I don't know one person in here, as I know of,
except my manager, those who that's here, that I know is on the
platform is with me. I know no one.
But–but I cannot be responsible for other men's testimony. I can only
be responsible for what I know is truth. Then when the services is
finished, this next week, Sunday week, if the Lord permits us to
stay… If these things that I have said come to pass, then you believe
God. If they do not come to pass, then I–I am a false prophet then.
And now, that's fair to any congregation, isn't it? And you just let
God… You judge according… Don't be prejudice or try to… just be
reverent, and just come sit down and look at it in the way that you
should as Christian men and woman, and then you can pass your opinion.
And I will pray that God will bless us and give us of His Presence.
I think that no service is complete without reading the Scripture. And
then if this is tonight, I want to read just a–a portion of God's
Word. My word will fail, it will pass away as all mortal's words do,
but God's Word will never pass away. It–It's true.
And I want you to turn with me to Exodus in the 23rd–23rd chapter, and
begin with the 20th verse, to read some of God's Word. I'm so glad to
see you turning in your Bible, for that is God's Word. And then if we
read out of the Word, God will bless His Word. It will not return void,
but It'll accomplish that which It was purposed for.
Now, I shall read as you read with me.
do all that I speak; then will I be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an
adversary unto thine adversaries.
Shall we bow our heads just a moment for prayer. Our heavenly Father,
we're grateful to Thee tonight to have the privilege of living, being
among those who are left here on the earth. Oh, we want every moment to
count for Thee, for Thy Son. And now, help us tonight, Lord, as we
gather here as Christian believers, coming not in the way of curiosity,
but just merely humbly approaching the Throne of God to find mercy for
the needy. And, Father, as You speak tonight, I pray that many
unbelievers, and sinners, backsliders, will look and behold Your glory,
then come humbly and sweetly up to the altar, say, "Now it's finished
in my heart, for I accept Him now as my Saviour. I know He still lives
and reigns in His Church and among His people." For we ask it in the
Name of Thy Holy Son, Jesus. Amen.
This Word that we have just read, was God sending Moses. Moses was born
an odd, peculiar birth. It was just time for the prophetic wheel of
God, to cause then it to move up and to have something to come to pass
that He'd promised Abraham to take His people out, and He did. God
always moves just in time. You believe that?
Now, we're at the day; we're in the last days. Just how close to the
end, I do not know: no one knows, not even the Angels or the Son of
God; the Father, only, knows. But we're in the last days, and He
promised that these signs and wonders would be done in the last day.
So if God raised up a man by the name of Moses, bor–had him born into
this world for that specific purpose, to deliver the people that were
in bondage, that couldn't help themselves… And He brought them out,
through His… Not Moses, Moses never performed one miracle. It was the
Angel of God that went before Moses. It was a Pillar of Fire at night,
a cloud by day. And when you see the picture that we're going to show
you, shortly, if we haven't. I believe you'll feel that it's the same
Pillar of Fire that's leading the people today, the Angel of God. Which
we know the Angel that led Moses was the Angel of the covenant, which
was Christ, the Son of God. And now… Or, the Logos that came out of
God, was the Son of God. Then when…
God delivered the children of Israel when they were in bondage and
couldn't help themself. Today, God's people are not in bondage,
spiritually, for they're–they're delivered by the power of the Holy
Spirit. No man has to stay in bondage of sin any longer, because the
Holy Spirit brings him from the bondage of sin.
But the people, His children, are sick and needy and some of them are
cancer-ridden, and tubercular, heart trouble, that our beloved doctors
of this earth can find no remedy for. And it's multiplying, getting
greater and greater all the time. Sickness is heaping greater and
greater. And some of the things that–that the doctors know not how to
control and the people have cried, sincerely for years and years, for
God to restore to the Church again, His gifts, signs and wonders. I
guess there's hundreds in here, tonight, that's prayed that prayer.
Well, when the children of God begin to cry down in Egypt, God sent
them down a deliverer and vindicated this deliverer by signs and
wonders. Don't you think God could do that tonight, just the same?
Isn't He the same Father tonight. And if you're sick and can't get
well, the doctor can't help you, then don't you think your Father is
here for you? And can't He send His gifts? Now, He–He did then, and I
believe He's just the same today. He always makes a way provided.
Now, many people has said, because that I testify of this gift… Now
remember, I am not the gift. The one that you'll see in performance
here tonight, which is here visibly–invisibly now, He's the gift. He's
the One that God sent down. I just speak when He speaks through me. I
can say nothing unless He says to me first. But He promised me that I
would be able to do this, to–for the faith of the people, to get them
to believe that He sent me to pray for the sick; not to heal the sick,
to pray for the sick. "And the prayer of faith shall save the sick."
Now, He's the Gift.
Someone said, not long ago, to me, said, "Brother Branham, Angels was
ministering spirits in the Old Testament, but since the Holy Spirit has
come, we don't have ministering Angels anymore." Now, dear friends,
this is not a worship of Angels, understand; we do not believe in
worshipping Angels. There's only One to be worshipped; that's God, and
His Son, our Holy Spirit. No Angel, no, not no man or no Angel to be
worshipped. And now, the Angel of God… A true Angel of God would not
stand still to be worshipped.
But that you might know that Angels still minister to the church, after the Holy Spirit has come, how about…
Well, think of Mary, when the Gabriel came down and spoke to her about
the virgin birth of the Saviour, or Zechariah in the temple. Or, well,
after the Holy Ghost come. How many believes that Philip had the Holy
Ghost? We all believe that, don't we? Well, when he was down at
Samaria, preaching, having a revival, was it the Holy Ghost that came
to him, or did the Angel of the Lord touch him and say, "Go to the
desert Gaza."? The Angel of the Lord came to him. Is that true? It was
the Angel of the Lord that came to him.
Well, everyone would believe that the great Saint Peter, the apostle,
had the Holy Spirit. He had the keys to the Kingdom. And he had the
Holy Spirit, didn't he? But when he was in jail one night, and in
prison; and down at John Mark's house they were having a prayer
meeting. It was the Angel of the Lord Who came in and touched him, and
led… Not the Holy Spirit, the Angel of the Lord came in.
We know that Paul had the Holy Spirit. Do you believe that? Well, when
he was fourteen days and nights upon the sea, without any moon or
stars, and it was all dark. And he went down in the gallery to pray. He
came back and told the men, "Be of a good courage; for the Angel of
God, Whose servant I am, came to me last night and said, 'Fear not,
Paul.'" Is that right? Not the Holy Spirit; the Angel of God (See?), an
Angel of God, sent from God.
And then John the revelator. The whole Book of Revelation, when It was
wrote, he said, "I have sent My angel," Jesus did. And John fell down
to worship the angel, but the Angel said, "Stand up. Worship God." See,
a true angel of God won't stand to be worshipped. And he said that he
was of the prophets, and was his fellow men that had been sent to
signify these things. Therefore, angelic beings is ordained ministers
of God, to come to the earth to bear record of God. And they work
through mortal beings, just as they did through Daniel and back through
the ages there. And I believe it with all my heart.
And so therefore, friends, as a–as your brother, that's all I am. But
God's gift is the Spirit of God that came down in the form of an Angel.
Now, he didn't have wings. He looked like a man. I heard him when he
walked [Brother Branham illustrates–Ed.],
just as that, and walked on the floor. Walked right over, just as
normal as any man, and talks just like any man. He comes, time after
time, through the room and different places when I'm fasting and
Now, tomorrow night about this time, or a little before, I will
probably break my fast. And now, I'm praying. And now, I have
nothing… When I… If it gets away from me, I go out. I like fishing,
hunting, talking, like anyone else. But when He comes, I… It's
different then. And now, He's here tonight to minister to you people,
and I'm only His mouthpiece. And everyone be assure of that, and
worship God and give Him praise, and be humble.
Now, being the first night in the service, it may be just a little bit
before we can get the Presence of Him but–to come close, to go to
ministering to the people.
And I want all you dear people, setting out in the audience there, I
want you to believe me with all your heart. Now remember, that's the
only way I can help you. How many believes God? Let's see your hands.
How many believes the Son of God? Believes the Holy Spirit? That's
fine. That's good.
But now, friends, you can believe that, which you have to, to be a
Christian. You have to believe in God the Father, the Son, and the Holy
Ghost in order to be a Christian. But believing that still won't help
you in this gift. You've got to believe that I've told you the truth,
not believe me as Them, but believe that They have sent me for this
Now, you could be a renowned Christian, and fail to believe what I've
told you to be the truth, and you'd never be able to reap a bit of
benefit from it. Now, I'm sorry to have to say that, but it's the
When Jesus was on earth, the people that killed him, believed in God
the Father, and were great worshippers of God. Is that right? But He
could not help them, because they did not believe in Him. Is that
right? And He said with His Own mouth, "As you have believed in God,
believe also in Me." Is that right?
Now, if you have believed in God the Father, the Son, and the Holy
Spirit, I want you to believe that He sent me here to pray for you, and
He will testify whether He has or not. And if He testifies, then you
believe it. And that's what makes the meeting in the category that it's
in. For the people believe, if they believe with one heart and accord,
you'll see the glory of God be manifested among His people. I have
testified to you the truth.
Now, it's time for our Father to talk and to speak. And let us talk to
Him again just before we form the prayer line, if you will.
Now, Dear heavenly Father, Your Word lays here on the pulpit, and I
know that It is the Divine Word of Truth, every Word is the Truth. I
believe It, and I realize that every prophet that went forth in the
days of old, had a time to try to bring the people to a recognition of
Jehovah. The apostles who've paved the way with blood, gone on before
us. They was disbelieved in cities, and cast out. And Your own beloved
Son, when He was here on earth, and He went to the city, and many
places they did not believe Him. "And many mighty works He could not do
because of their unbelief."
Now, we know that He's here with us tonight. He's sent His Spirit to
vindicate that His Presence is with His Church. And help us tonight,
Father, and Your poor, humble, unworthy servant who's standing here
making these statements. I ask that You'll let the Angel of God, Who
has guided me down through life, has kept me, fed me, brought me this
far. I pray that He will be here, and there will not be one disease or
one thing that can be able to pass by His Presence without being
perfectly delivered. May many of them in the audience, Lord, just now
set down and say, "I'm going to study… Lord, I'm going to think of
You, and Your Spirit being here. I want to know Your nature, that I
might know how to love You and serve You."
Bless all, Father, who is here tonight. May all the sick and afflicted
be healed, and all the unsaved be saved. For we ask it in the Name of
Thy holy Son, Jesus. Amen.
My brother, I'm looking for him. What? How many cards you give out?
Where'd you start from? A-1. Our custom of giving cards, we–we tried
everything in the world, nearly.
We used to send the cards to the ministers. We give the card, let the
ministers give the cards out. The first minister got his group; that's
about all that ever got prayed for, was his group. Then the other
ministers felt hard about that.
Then we come to the meeting; I'd give them to some of my managers. They
were ministers, and their minister friends would say, "Won't you give
me a card for so-and-so?" That made it bad. We had to stop that.
Then, the only way that we've ever found successfully to do, I brought
my brother, let him pass out the cards. He's not a minister, knows no
one, so he just passes out the cards. When he gets pretty well known, I
will get someone else to pass them out. Then to get someone to pass
them out, so you… There's no respect of persons: If anybody comes,
can have a card.
We could give you a thousand cards, but we can't minister that many in
a night, so we just give out about fifty. And then they got so, that
when the fifty was give out, who was going to be first? So the way that
we did then, they come and shuffle up the cards together, putting them
all together, pass them out, and then you choose a number after we get
to the platform to begin with. Somebody might have 1 and we might start
at 15. We might start at 50 and come back. So just where usually we
have some little boys, or something, let… or someone to count a
number, and, or… someone to start from or usually they just tell me
and I just take a number. Maybe sometimes I count how many in this row,
and how many is in this row, and divide them and get a number to start
from, or do something like that. Or count how many people is on a cot
and then divide that by how many is on wheelchairs or something like
that, and start some numbers: something another, so it'll be fair to
everyone. That I know, myself, that it's fair to everyone. That gives
everyone a chance to be…
Now, that's the prayer card, doesn't heal you. If you dear people,
setting here, will just look this way and believe with all your heart,
the Holy Spirit will turn right around and call you and tell you what's
the matter with you, and heal you right where you're at. Now, that is
the truth, friend. You'll notice it. And God bless you.
Now, did you say A-1, we start at, A-1? They got 1 to 50. Well, being
that this is our first night, let's just begin with the–with 1,
tonight, and start. Those holding prayer cards from A-1 to… Don't
have too many stand at once. Let's start, A-1 to 8, about 8 or 10 , or
A-1 to A-15. Take A-1 to A-15, and let them line here while the rest of
us will sing "Only Believe." And I'm going to pray just for a few
moments. And you be praying with me, will you, audience, if you will.
May God bless you.
[Brother Branham steps aside to privately pray.–Ed.]
[A brother says, "Those with prayer cards
from A-1 to A-15 stand in line, according to your number, at my right,
and your left of the platform. Everyone else remain seated,
[A brother leads the congregation in singing "Only Believe" several times.–Ed.]
[A brother exhorts the people to believe. Congregation sings "Only Believe" a few more times.–Ed.]
[A brother leads the service while Brother Branham prays–Ed.]
Again, slowly with the organ, if you will. That's fine…?… Could we
just pray once more, friends. I… Just if you'll bow your heads.
Father, will You just draw near just now, so that we'll feel Your great
Presence…?… all over the audience. And I have made a great
statement that makes in the meeting. And I know, without You I'd be a
total failure. I can't do this in myself, Lord. And I must have You.
Will You just send Him now? He will be able to help these poor people.
Look upon them tonight, Lord. Have mercy upon them. Give them great
faith to believe, know Your Divine will and…?… Help us now. May
every demon power be subject to Thy Spirit tonight. Give us faith,
predominating faith to challenge this enemy in this duel.
Now, I know not what's the matter with these people, Lord, but Thou
dost know. You just help me to know, Lord, then it'll build their faith
to love You, to know more about You.
As I go forward now to–to challenge the enemy, will You go with me,
Lord, and help me? In the Name of Thy Son Jesus, I ask it. Amen.
Everyone be just as reverent as you can. Pray, everyone. All right now,
Howard, I want you to bring them to me just one at a time. Yes, bring
them to me.
I want you to notice the expression on the face of people, just a few
moments when the anointing gets up a little more, when they start
coming. Usually they start crying or something change the expression
when they get near here. Now, His Presence is here now at the platform
right now. That's right.
E-21 How do you do, sir? Are you from here in the city? [The brother says, "No, I'm from Zion."–Ed.]
Your from Zion, a great city. You're a stranger to me. I don't know
you. Just maybe I've never seen you. You're from Zion. I've probably
seen you, but didn't know you. Now, you're suffering with some cause
somewhere. And I will be able to tell you, maybe, if I can…?…
Yes, my brother, you're a sick man. You have many troubles wrong with
you. One of them is a heart trouble, that's been bothering you for some
time. You have a stomach trouble also. Isn't that right?
You've consulted a doctor about this too, and they don't give you much
hope. But that…?… You believe with all your heart? Look, I want you
to look at me when I'm talking to you.
Your whole trouble has been, is your make-up. You're more of a–kind of
a deep thinker. You're nervous to begin with, an inward nervous, a type
of nervousness that…?… causes you trouble. Really, your heart
trouble is a nervous heart, is what it is. I believe you were told
that. And your stomach is caused… it's a peptic ulcer in your stomach
that causes you this trouble, stress. And sometimes, when laying down,
your heart hurts you worst then your peptic ulcer did. Now usually, in
that case, it causes fluttering itself, makes the heart flutter and
But now do you believe with all your heart? You may be healed. Is that
the truth what I've told you? Then there's some way that I have of
knowing that, isn't it, sir? Do you believe It's the Spirit of God? You
have a strange feeling, knowing that you are standing near. There's a
supernatural Being. Now, believe. Feeling kind of like a awe, it's
because of His Presence…?… God's presence. Now, you've come to
Jesus Christ. Your faith is has met them here. You bow your head. The
audience bow their head too.
Our heavenly Father, You're here in… [Blank.spot.on.tape–Ed.]… to come to You for the very mercy. And now here he is at the platform. Help me, dear God, to have faith for him.
Thou demon that's bound this man, and caused this trouble, I adjure thee by the Son of God, leave the man, come out of him.
Now, just a moment. Everyone just remain with your head bowed. It's
still hitting my hand. See that color there, sir, that turns my
Now, look this a way, sir. You're a sick man. You're a Christian. But
you've been prayed for before, been in a prayer line somewhere before,
been prayed for. And it's a–it's kind of… you're just not getting
the…?… like, you know. Now, you have to have a real genuine faith.
I don't want you to look until…?… I can't tell you that. Now, I
wouldn't tell you that 'less I knew what I was speaking of. I want to
be able to pronounce you well. And I only do it, when God brings it
down and heals you.
Now, you just, right now, settle the question now, for all time? You're
going to believe it right now? You believe that I have told you the
truth as God gives it? You… Father, be merciful to my brother. He
wants to eat again, feel good, and wants to be able to walk and not
have those feelings. And, Lord, You're the only One Who can help him.
So I pray, God, if it's my faith, that we–forgive me. And if it's his
faith, Lord, bring him up now to the place to believe. Seemingly, that
his faith isn't–that's holding back, that he believes and help me to
have faith then over this enemy that's bound the man.
Thou demon, in the Name of the Son of God, Jesus Christ, come out of the man.
All right, you may raise your head, friend. The man is healed…?…
You felt that, of course, when it left. Oh, my! Go home, and eat what
you want to.
brother says, "Now, you understand, Brother Branham discerned this
disease, affliction, entirely by the Spirit of God. He never seen the
card. Now, on the card, are the words, 'Heart and stomach
Our brother, he felt that. He just… It–it left him. Now, the man can
go right out now and eat anything he wants to, without any misery.
He–He will be testifying of it. He's well. He will be well.
E-26 All right, sir, come forward. Everyone be real reverent, just reverent as you can be.
since that one man was healed, just feels like a throb coming in now,
as people begin to believe. I can tell it from the outside there,
just–just a moving.
Good evening, sir. Now, I want you to look right at me. And this is not
reading your mind…?… It just that… Now, you're a human, and you
have a spirit. And this anointing is by another Spirit that contacts
And I would like to have your hand just a moment, please. Now there's
a… There's not too much wrong. Now, just a moment. It's some way,
without a germ disease. I will have to see. Now, you just look to me,
and you just answer me as I talk to you. See, I got to see it by
vision, sir, to see their…
The–the trouble that's wrong with you, isn't a germ. You have a little
symptoms of a prostate trouble, which causes you to be nervous, but not
enough to cause you to get a prayer card or something.
Now, you just look right this a way. Just be sincere. Believe with all
your heart. And now, how long have you been a Christian? About five
years. You love the Lord, do you? Serve Him with all your heart? He's
wonderful, isn't He? You're just a little nervous. I'm trying to get
quietened so that you… Just don't be nervous. Just look right this
way and believe now. 'Course, you have a very strange feeling because
of standing in that Presence.
Yes, sir, I see what's wrong with you. You have epilepsy. Isn't that
right? I see you having those spells there. Something's here to say
that, isn't it? You believe the Son of God? Believe, if I'd ask Him,
that it'd leave you and wouldn't come back no more? Shall we bow our
Someone take the little boy there, ever who owns the little boy.
Sometimes this goes from one to another. And now, someone with the
little boy, keep him close to the mother somewhere. Get him there. Come
Our heavenly Father, our brother stands here, afflicted. I just ask You
with all my heart, to be merciful, knowing there's nothing can help him
except You. And the great, strong, fine-looking man like this to be
afflicted with such a power that doctors can do nothing with. But,
Lord, one morning a man brought a boy to You. They took him to Your
disciples and they could do nothing for him. He was having epileptic
fits. And when the demon saw You, the boy fell on the ground and
frothed at the mouth. But You said, 'Take him up. It'd be all right.'"
And that's probably the last spell he ever had, for You cast it out of
him. The father said, "Can You help my boy."
You said, "I can if you believe, for all things are possible to them that believe."
O dear God, if You were standing on this platform tonight, physically
in body, You'd stretch forth Your hands; this man would look upon You,
and he would know You was here. He would believe You.
But now You're here in another form, working in Your church. You said,
"A little while the world seeth me no more, yet I will be with you,
even in you, to the end of the age." Now, it's the representative of
I come in a challenge of faith. So help me, dear God, to drive from the man the evil power.
Thou demon, called epilepsy, hold your peace. But in the Name of Jesus
Christ the Son of God, Who died at Calvary and gave His Blood freely, I
charge thee, through Him, come out of the man, and leave him.
It went from you. Some cool feeling sweep over you. All right, you may
raise your head. The brother standing here, he said a cool feeling
swept over him just then. Everything left him. It's gone from him. Now,
go in peace…?…
[A brother says, "On the brothers card is the word 'Epilepsy.'" –Ed.]
All right, bring your next patient.
E-29 Now, everybody be just as reverent as you can, and God will bless and will heal you. How many loves Him, say amen. [Congregation says, "Amen."–Ed.]
He's wonderful. All right, everybody…?… Let's see your hand just a
minute. Oh, it's the…?… I could feel that hitting of that…?…
what's happened. In your… You believe now with all your heart? If I
will ask Him, and He will… If you believe that I will ask Him, you'll
be able to hear? Will you serve Him all your life, give Him praise? You
believe that He sent me to do this? You have other troubles too, don't
you? You have other troubles, physical troubles. Seem to get weak, your
back, between your shoulders. All right, have faith in God, as I ask
Him to heal you? Shall we bow our heads, everyone.
Our heavenly Father, this dear woman has come up here. A deaf spirit
has got on her, and she is deaf, only hearing by the aid of this
trumpet. But Thou art her aid, Lord, You Who created her, can make her
well. I pray Thee to be merciful to her. Grant her healing now, also of
this trouble in her back, this rheumatic pains. Dear heavenly Father,
heal her also there. See her eyes are getting weak also, and nerves.
Grant that she'll be a–a different person, heal her, go out to serve
You all the days of her life, giving a testimony, causing others to be
brought to this glorious Gospel of Christ. May her testimony be used in
a great way for the glory of God. What days she's got left, may they be
spent glorifying You. And we're taught that all things work together
for good to them that love You. Maybe this come upon her to give her a
testimony. You could heal her and let her go out and testify, to win
others to You. Help her just now.
Thou demon of deafness, spirit of infirmity that's binding her body, I
adjure thee by the Son of God, Jesus Christ, you turn her loose. Come
out of her.
Now, everyone just remain with your head bowed just a moment. It did
not let loose. Now, please do not raise your head till you hear my
voice. Sometimes many people, sometimes you think you believe, you
know, you just raise your head, throw it right back on her. See? Now,
don't do that. And then you really…?… Now, you be real nice
children of God. Believe with all your heart.
Father, be merciful now and heal our sister so that she may be Thy disciple and testimony of Divine healing.
Thou spirit of deafness, leave the woman. In the Name of Jesus Christ,
come out of her. Now, just remain here with your head bowed. It's left
her. Just a moment now, for the…?…
E-32 You hear me? Can you hear me? Amen. Say "amen." Amen. [The sister says, "Amen."–Ed.] It's–it's… That's right. Hear me now? [Brother Branham snaps his fingers–Ed.] All right, you may raise your head. It's left you. All right. [Brother Branham snaps his finger once.–Ed.] Hear that? [Brother Branham snaps his finger again.] Hear me? [Brother Branham snaps his fingers and claps several times.] Hear me? Now, you haven't got your ear trumpet in now.
the shrinkage of that, about an hour, maybe two hours, you'll be
hearing right real well. And about day after tomorrow, you'll go all
the way deaf again. Then about two days after that, you'll begin to get
a running out of your ear. Then, come back, you'll be hearing normal
and well then. There's a growth on the ear drum (You see?) is what was
doing it. God bless you, sister. And your other troubles are gone too.
God bless you.
Let's say, "Praise the Lord," everybody. [Congregation says, "Praise the Lord."–Ed.] Lets just have faith and believe will all of your hearts, and God will grant it.
All right, bring the next man, if you will.
Now, there's things that happened… You see? Now, she had a growth on
her ear drum. How many knows that when you, when anything dies,
immediately after it dies, it shrinks. How many knows that? How many
deer hunters is in here? Let's see your hands. All right. You kill the
deer tonight, and tell the boys how much it weighs. Be careful in the
morning; it'll weight a lot different. Isn't that right? Let a little
animal get run over on the street here, it'll shrink. An undertaker
knows that. They take the false teeth out of the patient, because,
after it shrinks, that they would push out. But then after it swells…
After it shrinks for awhile, then it'll start swelling. Then it
starts… [Blank.spot.on.tape–Ed.]… like a body of a little dog.
That's the reason I told her she'll go all the way deaf now, in
about… After about seventy-two hours, it'll start shrunk, she'll be
hearing good. She can hear now. Couldn't hear a thing, at first. She
can hear now, normal, practically normally. 'Cause as–as soon as the
life went out, it went down.
Now, if she gets among believers, and then if… After the corruption
sets into it, I told her it would be running from the ears. Listen at
her testimony in about four or five nights from now. Look what's
happened. Just have faith now, and believe. [Blank.spot.on.tape–Ed.]
You been trying to get a hold here to… You been asking God to speak
to me. Isn't that right? Now, look this a way. I seen a vision move
above you awhile ago. You're from–you're from away from here. Isn't
that right? You're a stranger here in the city, and you've come from a
place where there's a more of a level country. Lots of wind blows,
something like Texas, Kansas, the Dakotas, or somewhere through there.
It's a level country where you're at.
And you're suffering. Let me see. Look. Watch this. Oh, your trouble is
in your mouth. You have cancer in the mouth, I believe. Isn't that
right? That is right. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, makes you whole,
sir. Go, and the Lord God…?…
Let us give Him praise. Oh, He is here. Don't you believe Him? How many
believes Him right now while He's here? Let us stand and give Him
Holy Spirit, move upon them and bless them, in the Name of Jesus Christ, I pray.
