E-1
Thank you, Brother Baxter, thank you much. Good evening friends. I'm
happy to be out here again this evening to represent our Lord Jesus
Christ and His great power to save and to heal to the uttermost. The
brethren was just telling me that this microphone wasn't too good
tonight. And can you hear me way back in the back? Way up high? Can, if
you can raise your hand, so I can hear that, know that way back…
That's fine; that's fine.
I'm a little tired tonight, I was up until about two o'clock this
morning, and the Lord… I got something that's on my mind, and He… I
stayed right up and prayed until He sent His great power around and
revealed it to me what it was. And it just turned today just the way He
said it would be. And how thankful we are for that.

E-2
Now, I think tomorrow afternoon we was telling I was to speak here at
the auditorium, so I–I hope and trust that you'll be praying for me.
And I pray constantly for you all. We just got one more day, and then
we must go many thousand miles away. But I trust that by God's grace,
that we shall return safely, and be able to have someday, the type of
meeting here in New York, that I would like to see: one that would just
go on and on and on, until…
People many times, when they're in the service, I'm never am around,
and–and Satan takes advantage of that. Seeing it being three or four
days, and it's sometimes more than that before the really, the blessing
begins to take place in the individual. Then when–when Satan returns
about that time, the unclean spirit that's gone out of the man, and
then he tries to tempt the person again, and many times they'll give
right in. And when they do, then it's over. See, if the meeting was
going on, they could come back. And they could see what was taking
place, and just stay till the meeting, really got settled out, you'd
see tens of thousands healed, I–I believe, if we could just stay long
enough.

E-3
Now, have faith. And I'll say this: that after I'm gone, well,
you'll–you'll find out, there's many people that's healed in the
audience already, that's, maybe they don't realize it at this time, but
I–I know it is true.
Now, I wish to read some of the Scripture, for my word is like any other man's; it will fail. But God's Word won't.
I just noticed my good friend and brother, Brother Raymond T. Richey. I
guess he's already been introduced and–and… But here I certainly
have a warm Christian love for Brother Richey. He was at the auditorium
the night that the Angel of the Lord's picture was taken. He was
standing present at the time of the discussion when this minister came
out, tried to call me a Divine healer. I told him I was no Divine
healer; there's no man that's a Divine healer. No one can heal at all
but God. And doctors, they don't heal; they just assist nature. They
don't claim to heal, they can sew a place up, but they can't heal it.
They might set a bone, but they can't heal it. And it takes God; He's
the Healer. He said, "I'm the Lord that heals all your diseases." For
all diseases has to be determined by God.

E-4
Now, we're thankful for doctors, and so forth, who can give us medical
aid, and set bones, pull teeth, and–and–and so forth, but them's
all–all right. That's… Doctors are God's servants to the people, and
they help people. In the hospitals and institutions, we're very
thankful to have them. And I have nothing against them; the only thing
I do is pray that God will continue to help them. For anything that'll
help bless, or do anything to help people, I'm for it. And I know God
is with any movement that's trying to help people.
That's what we're–we should do always, is try to do something to help
somebody else. After all, that's the Christian attitude towards things.

E-5
This is a great heavy burden that no one knows nothing about. That's
just God and I alone. But when I do get to go to bed, what a wonderful
privilege I have to kneel down before God and say, "Father, I've done
the best that I know how today. I've done all that I know how to make
life just a little more pleasant for people." And I'm sure that His
blessings returns and returns and makes life a little more pleasant for
me. If you want to do something for God, do something for His people.
You want something good said about you, say something good about
someone else. Bless someone else, and as you're blessing someone else,
you're blessing God. For Jesus said, "Insomuch as you have done unto
the least of these, My little ones, you have done it unto Me." So, we
know that that is the truth. So, may the Lord Jesus bless us tonight
now, as we read His Word.

E-6 And look, everyone now, we're here representing different denominations, Methodist, Baptist, Lutheran, Catholic all… [Blank.spot.on.tape–Ed.]
types of church, but that doesn't mean that much to God, that church
you belong to. It's the condition of your heart. That's what God looks
at. It's not the denomination church; they're all all right…?… just
working agreement like between men and so forth, and I come not
representing any church. Oh, I represent the Church, the Church that
everyone of you represent. Them that are borned of Him are in the
Kingdom of God, the Body of Christ.
I've been in the Branham family for forty years; they never asked me to
join their family. I was borned in the Branham family. And that's how
you would come in the family of God. It's not by joining church; I have
nothing against that; that's all right; and you should do that. But
you're borned in the Church of God. That's your birth. And you become a
child of God by being reborned again, regenerated, and become a new
creature in Christ Jesus, then you are a son or daughter of God.
Regardless of what denomination church you belong to.

E-7
Now, in the book of II Kings, the 6th chapter… I just love to read
this Word, and I'm… Brother Baxter was making an apology for taking
up much of the time. I said, "Do not do that, Brother Baxter." For I
was just standing behind the curtain listening to his marvelous
message. Brother Baxter is a very much of a speaker. And I am very
happy to have him in our party, to make up one of us. And Brother
Bosworth here is one of the greatest teachers on Divine healing that I
ever heard in my life, is Brother Bosworth. He's old, and he's–he–he
don't–he won't–he will resent that.
I was standing down at the Biltmore Hotel in Miami one night; he was
just as gallant and standing strong and straight. And I looked at him;
I admired him. I knowed that the battles that he had fought down
through life's time, and I'm just following the path that he
car–carved out in the wilderness. And I said, "Brother Bosworth,
you're seventy-three years old now, when were you your your best?
Threw his shoulders back like Caleb of old, and said, "Right now,"
said, "I am right now." He said, "Brother Branham, you misunderstand
me," he said, "I'm just a child in an old house." So that's the way he
feels about it, and God has kept him that way, wonderful.

E-8
Oh, if I… If Jesus tarries, and I can stay that long, let me be like
that. That's right. Brother Richey here, how I could speak of him, of
how down through the age when I was a little boy in school, he was out
there preaching the Gospel and praying for the sick, when I was just a
boy. Your mothers and dads listened to him preach the Gospel on Divine
healing, both of them out of Zion, Illinois. Candidates are out from
under the–the great teacher late Doctor Dowie. How Doctor Dowie in his
death prophesied that I would come to that city forty years from the
time that he died. Not knowing nothing about it, he died on one day,
and I was borned on the next. And forty years to the day I entered the
city, not knowing nothing about it. Oh, how God's great move is coming
together; I hear the sound of abundance of rain.

E-9
Now in the 6th chapter, and the 8th verse, listen closely. God never
promised to bless my word, but He promised to bless His Word. And now,
listen closely now, as we're duplicating the day. When this great man,
Elisha who had a double portion of the Spirit of Elijah.
There never was in the age, any two major prophets on the earth at one
time. There were many minor prophets, but there were one major prophet.
And Elijah was the prophet until Elisha came. Then when Elijah was
taking off, a portion, double portion, of Elijah's Spirit, Elijah's
Spirit came upon Elisha.
See, always remember this, God takes His man off the earth, but never
takes His Spirit. His Spirit comes right back down this a way. It come
upon Elijah, went off of Elijah onto to Elisha, off of Elisha It come
on John the Baptist, off of John the Baptist, and is predicted to come
again in the last days, the same Spirit. See? It's God's Spirit.

E-10
The Holy Spirit was upon the Church at Pentecost, come right down
through the age, and right on down through the age to the Lutheran,
Baptist, Methodist, and on down through, on into this age here. It's
still the same Holy Spirit. When people's faith get up into a place
they'll get the blessings, to realize it's theirs, then the same
operation of the Holy Spirit will be operating in the Church like It
did back there, just the same. Now, listen to this closely:

And the king of Syria warred against Israel,
and took counsel with his servants, saying, In such and such a place
shall be my camp.


And the man of God sent unto the king of
Israel, saying, Beware that thou pass not this place; for thither the
Syrians are come down.


And the king of Israel sent to the place
which the man of God told him and warned him of, and saved himself
there, not once nor thrice.


Therefore the heart of the king of Syria was
sore troubled for this thing; and he called his servants, and said unto
them, Will you not show me which of us is for the king of Israel?


And one of his servants said, None, my lord,
O king: but Elijah, the prophet that is in Israel, telleth the king of
Israel the words that thou speakest in thy bedchamber.


E-11
Let's bow our heads. Heavenly Father, we thank Thee tonight, to know
that the great Spirit of God which was upon the prophet Elisha, is on
earth today still moving on down through the sons of God. The great
Holy Spirit that was given at Pentecost is here tonight. And Thy
children, many are weary and worn, been pushed about, all for their own
good, their teaching, their child training, to bring them up in the
admiration of the Lord. Trials worth more than silver and gold, but as
it is written, "No chastisement is pleasant for the time being."
But finally when Thy Church becomes to have its training, then they
will become adopted sons, or placed sons, into the inherit of God which
shall inherit all things and be equal in the powers and blessings as a
Son of God, brothers to Him.

E-12
We think that how He was borned in this world, the Son of God. But at
the age of thirty, God placed Him. Upon the banks of Jordan that day,
when He was standing in the water, dripping from His locks, God
vindicated that as His Son and said, "This is My Beloved Son; in Whom I
am well pleased." Adoption, placing, placing into His Kingdom for the
work that He was to finish. And how we're thankful tonight that He
finished the course. Then despised the shame, but bore it, and was
nailed at Calvary as substitute for us, dying in capital punishment:
Borned in a stable, went out in capital punishment.
The King of glory come down and tabernacled among men, from the Ivory
Palaces to be, take upon Himself, not the form of Angels, but as a
servant of man. Clothed in humility, wandered about, no place to lay
His head, slept wherever He could, scorned by the one's that He loved,
and was made finally, a bleeding Sacrifice. But He pleased the Father
insomuch He said, "This is My Beloved Son; hear ye Him."

E-13
Then suffered under Pontius Pilate, crucified, died, was buried, rose
the third day, setting at the right-hand of God the Father, making
intercessions now for we who've accepted the Holy Spirit, the third
Person of the trinity. And in our hearts tonight He rules an reigns.
And He has said, "Whatsoever things you desire, when you pray, believe
you receive them, and you shall have them." We believe it.
And now, Lord, the great dark hours is come at the end-time. Help us
now tonight in this service, that God's great Spirit might come down
visible among men, every person in here might know that He's standing
near them. Oh, God, take the clay, the voice of mortal beings and
speak, Lord, the oracles of God, that people might see, and fear God,
and serve Him.
And may all the sick and the afflicted here tonight, be healed
everyone, may there not be a feeble one left. Grant, Lord, that this
will be a night that'll be a memorial night. Those who'll remember this
Saint Nicholas Arena will always remember tonight. Bless us now
together, for we ask it in the Name of Thy beloved Child, Jesus. Amen.

E-14
How marvelous it is to look at the Scripture just a moment, because the
time is up, about twelve, fifteen minutes. I wanted to finish telling
you the vision that was last night, the little boy being raised from
the dead in Finland. How many here had that wrote in their Bible before
it come to pass, you heard me speak of it in the auditorium, raise your
hand? I asked last night? About the little boy being raised from the
dead in Finland. Let's see your hands go up, the ones… All over the
building, everywhere, look at it.
See, that was long before it took place. Always speaks that way, and
it–you just write it down, that it's perfect. For it's not man that's
speaking; it's God. This is God's voice to the people, every Word of
God is a Seed and will produce just exactly like it's spoke in the
Bible, if it be received in good ground. Now that's God's voice to His
Church.

E-15
Now, to an individual sometimes He uses the human voice, which is
secondarily. It has to compare with this of the written Word. Now in
doing this, God has blessed us. And how that Elijah the prophet… And
when the king of Syria declared war on Israel and there was enmity
between them, why, Elijah the prophet set in his home. And he seen what
the enemy was going to do. So he went to the king of Israel and told
the king of Israel where that the king of Syria would be laying in
ambush to–to come out on them and ambush them when they came by. And
the king of Israel sent down there and found it just the way that
Elijah the prophet had told him.
God help us as American people, to when we can get back to God again,
that God was able to help the nation of Israel through the Divine realm
that can help America tonight through the Divine realm out of all this.
And that's our only hope that we have is in God. Our hope tonight is
not in the atomic bomb, our hope tonight is in Jesus Christ. Christ is
the answer.

E-16
Then in… the chaplain in Tokyo, out of Tokyo in Japan, rather, when
the war was going on, chaplain friend was standing there, he raised up
his hands and said, "God," in a consecration camp, said, "I guess I'll
come home to meet You from this place." Said, "I'd like to visit my
wife and babies once more, but nevertheless, Lord, if You want me to go
home from here, I'm ready to go."
Watched the little sentry walking his post, he walked close to him,
seemed like the sentry wanting to speak. He looked right and left to
see what… He said, "You Christian?"
Chaplain said, "Yes."
Said, "Me Christian too."
There's the answer. Not the Big Four, not the U.N., but the Christ
given way. Up in Finland you'd see the Russians and the Finns put their
arms around each other, and hug one another, and kiss one another with
tears rolling down their cheeks. Brothers, they had nothing against
each other. The god of this age is got in the hearts of leaders. All
the kingdoms of the world belongs to Satan at this time. You don't want
to believe that, but it's the Scripture.

E-17
Satan took Jesus up and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world, said,
"These are mine, I can do with them whatever I want to." Jesus knew
that, but He knew He'd fall heir to them. Said, "If You'll bow down and
worship me, I'll give them to You."
Jesus said, "It's written, 'Thou shall worship the Lord Thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve.'"
Over in Revelations it's written, "Rejoice you heavens, and ye holy
prophets, for the kingdoms of this world has become the kingdoms of our
Lord, and His Christ; and He will rule and reign forever." There'll be
no more war then. Leaders, selfishness everywhere. But in the midst of
all of this, the Church of God is being pulled out by the Holy Spirit.

E-18
Elijah seen where that king was going to do that, so he sent the king
of Israel and said, "Now, don't go down that way." Said, "Because
they're laying down a waiting."
And watch that same prophet, after getting down to Dothan, did not see
the… The Angel of the Lord never showed him about Syrians coming out
and covering the city over, for God had another way for that. God don't
show His servants all things, but He shows His servants just the Word
of knowledge as much as they have need to know. So you see it lays in
God's power, not in the power of man. Though man be blessed, but yet
God is the Father and Ruler over all.
Balaam of old said, "No prophet can say only what God puts in his mouth. How can he speak unless God speaks." And that was true.

E-19
Now, we read of the prophets of old, we read of the powers of God and
how it operated the church. And tonight, friend here that's lukewarm
and not up to where you should be in Christ, the great glorious powers
of God is ruling and reigning in His Church again. Don't you be one
that's behind. Do not try to be popular with the world and right with
God, because you can't be. You must be right with God, and then you're
not popular with the world. In this day that we're living, seek God
with all your heart. Call upon Him while it's time to call, while you
have a chance of repentance, and while the mercy of God is reached down
to you. For the hour is coming when it'll do no good to call. It'll be
too late then. Call now.
If you would've lived in the days gone by when they crucified Jesus,
you'd say today, "I would've stood for Him; I'd have give my life for
Him." You have a more of a opportunity to do that now then you would've
in them days. Stand now, the opposition is greater today than it was
then.

E-20
Last evening I was speaking at the little Glad Tidings Tabernacle where
we had our service, because the hall was used last evening here. I was
telling of how the Lord had raised a little boy from the dead in
Finland, which was seen two years in a vision before it come to pass.
Now, what was it did that? Not your brother, but the Spirit of God. The
same Spirit was upon Elijah, upon the–the men gone by; it's the same
Spirit in the world today, moving. It sees, foretells; you notice it. I
pray that It'll be in the meeting tonight to do the same thing.
It was upon our Master, Jesus Christ. When a man came to Him and was
going to doubt him, Jesus said, when He seen Nathanael coming, He said,
"Oh, behold, an Israelite, in whom there is no guile," in other words,
a Christian, a believer.
He said, "When did You know me?"
He said, "Before Philip called you, when you were under the tree, I saw you."

E-21
Now, Philip didn't try to refer it to mind reading or–or mental
telepathy, he just said, "Thou art the Son of God; the King of Israel."
Today his name's immortal among men for his decision. Your name shall
become immortal when you make your decision for Jesus Christ as the Son
of God, the King of Israel.
Then when He told the woman at the well about her sin. He talked to her
a little while and said, "Go get your husband." That was it; that was
her, what was hindering her.
He was questioned one time why He, about healing, when He seen one man
that had some kind of a disease and left a great multitude: Saint John
5. They questioned Him. He said "Verily, I say unto you, The Son can
nothing in Himself, but what He sees the Father doing: that doeth the
Son likewise." Saint John 5:19. "For the Father loveth the Son, and He
sheweth Him all things that Himself do: and He will show greater things
than this, that ye may marvel," the 20th verse.

E-22
Now, the Scripture says that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today
and forever. He did not claim to be a healer, He said, "It's not Me
that doeth the works; it's My Father that dwelleth in Me; He doeth the
works." He did not claim to be a great person, but what He did claim to
be, He was; and God vindicated it, that He was what He claimed to be.
And God will a vindicate every man that'll speak the truth. God will
prove it to be so. Man can say anything, that doesn't make it so. But
when God speaks, that makes it so. And He said He did just as the
Father showed Him.
And the Scripture says, "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today and
forever," three–Hebrews 13:8. Then Jesus Christ, if He's the same
today as He was yesterday, He still does the same works today that He
did yesterday. If He doesn't, He isn't Jesus Christ. And His claims are
not so.

E-23
And how does He do these works? In a visible body? No. For it's
written, "A little while and the world seeth Me no more; yet you'll see
Me: for I will be with you, even in you, to the end of the world. The
things that I do shall you also; and greater than this shall you do (or
more), for I go to My Father."
And nightly He does more in the meeting, in one single meeting He does
more of telling the people what to do and so forth, in one single
meeting, and it's written of Him telling the people in the New
Testament (Think of that.) of three years of ministry. 'Course there's
many things He did do; it's not recorded according to Luke, but the
things that's written…
He told a man one time where there was a fish had a coin in his mouth.
He told them where some mules was hitched, two places where they come
together. He knew where a man would be packing a pitcher, make ready an
upper room. Just about six, seven, things is all He… Is recorded of
Him saying. But He knew their thoughts; He read their mind.

E-24
Did you know Jesus read people's mind? He perceived their thoughts. Is
that right? Then He knew what they were thinking about. He knows
tonight what you're thinking about. And He's here now, and knows what
you're thinking about, and can reveal through His channels what you're
thinking about.
'Course we know the devil has patterns and types of everything that God
has. Everything that Satan has is secondarily that he patterned off of
God. Every bogus thing has a–has something original to be made off of.
If there was no real dollar, the bogus dollar would be the original and
the first. And as long as there is a bogus, only proves that there is a
real one somewhere. Amen. A real one, so when you see something the
devil is doing, remember, God's got something that's far beyond that,
that he's trying to impersonate here. But Jesus said, "By their fruits
you shall know them."

E-25
All right, now His Spirit is here. He's the same yesterday, today and
forever. He's moving in His Church. Church, you know what's the matter
with it? Here's what it is. You're not yielding to the Holy Spirit. You
receive the Holy Spirit and think, "Well, that's as much as I go."
Well, you're just ready to go to work for God then. When you're
in–receive the Holy Spirit by believing on Jesus Christ and receiving
the Holy Spirit, then you're just a candidate to go to work for God.
Then go to yielding your members to Him, see what He will have you to
do. He might have you to preach, sing, testify, pass out tracts, talk
to people, bring someone to church. All kinds of gifts and helps that's
in the body of Christ… Some are called for one thing, some another.
But no matter what you got, how little it is… You say, "Well, Brother
Branham, only thing I can do; I might talk to some people." Well, that
might not be very much to you, but put it in the hands of Jesus, and
see what He will do with it. Like the little fishes that was in the
little boys hand, it could only feed him. But when he put it in Jesus'
hand, it fed five thousand. So it will be with you. Put what you have
in His hand.

E-26
In Finland that night, when the little boy had been raised from the
dead, as I told you last night, the little girl. The other little boy
was struck and hit over on the other side, his head, had a concussion.
They called us from the hospital; the little boy was dying. That poor
little Finnish mother; I never felt so sorry for her. There was
thousands and thousands; you couldn't get near the auditorium. For two
or three city blocks they were just blocked in solid everywhere, in
Kuopio, Finland, that's near the Laplands.
And oh, what a marvelous, glorious time we were having in Christ. And
when I went in one night, they had to drag me across the little mother.
And the next day Mrs. Isaacson said, "Brother Branham, that poor little
father and mother," second day, said, "they're setting out here," and
said, "it's–it's pathetic to–to see them." Said, "They're crying;
they want you to go down there."
I said, "Sister Isaacson, I could do nothing, God would have to show me first." I said, "I'm praying for the child."
Said, "Will you just come out and speak to them?"
So they brought them in the hall. Poor little mother, she run up and
said, "Oh, go, heal my baby." 'course, through the interpreter; she did
not speak English.
And I said, "Sister, I couldn't heal your baby."
Said, "Well, they raised the other little baby after he'd been dead." Said, "You could heal my little baby; he's dying."
I said, "No, ma'am, when I was over my homeland in America, two years
ago God showed the vision and told just where the little boy be laying,
and how it would look, how the little fellow would be." Many of you
read it in the "Voice of Healing," didn't you? I told you it would be
in the "Voice of Healing," and it–it–it is.

E-27 And then, the poor little thing, I felt so sorry for her. And she said… I said, "That was a vision."
And she said, "Well, go see vision for my little boy."
Well,
that was mighty sweet, but you can't see visions when you want to, not
at your leisure; it's God's Divine order, not what I will, but what He
will. Now… then… Here's what taken place. I said, "Are you
Christian?"
"No."
I said, "Look, your little boy may be dying, as the doctor says. And he
will go up to heaven because he's a baby," about six, seven years old.
I said, "He doesn't know what sin is yet." I said, "He will go up to
heaven. And if you die in your sins, you can never be with him no more.
And if you get saved, and the little boy dies and goes up to heaven,
then if you, when you die, you'll go up to heaven; you'll be with him
always, where there's no accidents." And I said, "And perhaps then if
you wanted a favor from me, you'd do something for me, something kind.
If you want a favor with God, then do something kind."
And so she… Seemed they couldn't lose on that, so they knelt down and
begin to cry, and pray, and gave their hearts to Christ. They raised
up; then the poor little thing said, "Now, go in see vision for my
little boy."
I said, "I'll go pray."
She said, "Come, go at the hospital."
I said, "No, He can show me in my room just the same as He can show me there." I said, "He may not show me at all."
So Mrs. Isaacson finally got them to leave. And every few minutes
they'd call back up, say, "Brother Branham seen vision yet?" And they
were interested in their little boy, 'cause the doctor said it had not
come to and this was the third day.

E-28
We just come from the auditorium that night, and oh, I was standing at
the window, had this same Bible over my heart; I went up to the window;
it doesn't get dark there at that time of year. There come the Finnish
soldiers, and the–and the civilians walking through, just a talking to
one another, you know, probably of the meeting, because they was all
turned from the auditorium. The whole country in there was just working
alive with people.
And I put my Bible down on a table. And coming up my brother Howard,
many of you remember he was with us last time here. Now if there's any
Canadian people here, I don't mean to say this to any slam to your
country. See? When we was in Canada we got a hold of some candy, and
oh, my, they just haven't got the stuff to put in it that the American
people have. Now, that's… And it was kind of flat tasting. He said,
"You talk about Canada's candy being flat, taste this." And he give me
two little pieces of candy, and I just laid it down on the table and
walked over there. I raised up my hands like that, and I said, "Oh,
great Jehovah, how marvelous You are, wonderful." He just healed that
little war orphan that night, you know, who had been a crippled, and
her one leg was about six inches shorter than the other one, as I told
you last night. You seen her picture in the "Voice of Healing," and how
she couldn't move with them, a little war orphan. And I was thanking
God for her healing.

E-29
And standing there, I felt something strange; and I looked, standing
here by my side, and there He stood. He had a vase in His hand. I would
call it a vase; I don't know too much; it's kind of a long tall affair.
And in there was two American, what I call Easter flowers, daffodils,
yellow looking. I… We call them Easter flowers in Indiana and
Kentucky; I… May have a different name here, but they're kind of a
yellow looking flower comes up around Easter.
And they were setting in this little container that He had, little
thing. And He set it down here on the table. And one of these little
Easter flowers that was leaning to the north, was laying all the way
down, and the other one was wilting, going down.

E-30
And He looked at me, He's tall, big Man, about two hundred pounds, got
dark hair to His shoulders, kind of a olive complexion, always carries
His arms folded, comes from the right, always coming to me. He's come
since I was a little bitty baby. I was just a few minutes old when He
made His first appearance in a little log cabin in Kentucky.
And He was standing there; He'd set those–this little thing down, was
looking at me. And I looked at that, and He said, "What did your
brother give you?"
And I said, "Sir, two pieces of candy."
He said, "Eat them."
And I picked up one of the pieces of candy, started to eating, taste
pretty good, and I swallowed it. And when I did, the Easter flower that
was leaning to the north, just exactly, geographically, positionally,
the way the first boy fell to the north when the car had hit him, and
the other one went to the south, caught him under the chin and hit him
against the tree. And the other boy, it run right over him, just mashed
him under the car, the one that died. And the one that was living, back
in school then, and this little boy was still in the hospital, we
hadn't got to him yet.

E-31 And so, that one laying down that way, when I eat that first piece it went, whew, raised right straight up.
He said, "Eat the second piece."
And
I picked up the piece, and oh, what a terrible taste. I spit it out
like that, and that flower begin to go "tuff, tuff, tuff [Brother Branham illustrates.–Ed.]" going right down.
Said, "Fail, and the boy will die."
I put it back in my mouth and chewed real fast and swallowed it. And when I did it went, "tuff [Brother Branham illustrates.–Ed.],"
stood right up with the other one. And He looked at me, that ring of
Light that you see in the picture, came down over where He was; He went
up into the Light and went out.

E-32
Brother Baxter and my brother Howard had went to their room. Brother
Lindsay and Brother Moore had went to their room, and Sister Isaacson
to her room, and I'd went to my room. And I run out and called, and I
said, "Remember, it's THUS SAITH THE LORD, that baby's going to live,
that baby's that's dying in the hospital." I said, "Call her and tell
her."
So then, phones that they have there, it's a little bit of affair that
you kinda put in your ear, and turn a little crank. And she called the
home, Mrs. Isaacson did; and the people had been called to the
hospital, the baby was sinking and dying. They had a babysitter with
their other baby. They went to see the last of the baby.
And while they–while they rang the hospital, and the doctor came and
brought the lady to the telephone, and said, "That the Angel of the
Lord had just appeared in the room and saying, 'Your baby's going to
live.'"
And said, "How well I know it. He's setting up in there now to hisself in his right condition, ready to be washed and go home."
The baby today lives in Finland, perfectly, normally and well, because
Jesus Christ the Son of God had respect to the prayer of a mother. See?
Not me, it was the mother's prayer, her promise to God that she'd serve
Him, and the father.

E-33
Just a moment, I'm going to start the prayer line. Last evening when we
got home we had a very sad message. My wife setting here in front of me
with the baby. We've got a little fellow home about six months old, and
you don't know what a hard thing it is to leave that little fellow. She
had a little old knotty head; she laid it over on me this way the other
day, and I just felt like that my whole inner most being of my heart
would pull from me. I love her with all my heart.
We got a letter last night from some, from the secretary, said, "The
baby's sick." Of course, the mother, you know how she felt; she just
went into a frantic almost. And–and the baby's staying with the
grandmother which lives quite a distance from a phone. I said, "Well,
it's near midnight; don't call tonight, call in the morning."

E-34
We laid there just a few moments; I couldn't go to sleep. I heard my
wife, her breath become, coming slowly then, normally. So I slipped up,
went in the other room and knelt down; I begin to pray. Along about
three o'clock this morning, I looked in the room, and I seen someone
coming to me packing my baby. It was choking, its little face was red;
his little eyes were set. He was choking; he couldn't catch its breath,
and everybody was excited. They handed it over to me, and I placed it
in my arms and I said, "Oh, God, don't let my baby die; spare its life,
will You, Lord?"
About that time I heard it catch its breath, looked over at me, and was
all right then. I handed it back, and the Angel of the Lord spoke in
the room, said, "In the morning you'll receive the news that the baby
has been sick; it's all right now."
I waited just a little bit, went off to sleep. Woke up this morning
about nine o'clock; the wife came in the room and she said, "I'm going
to call the–I'm going to call now and see about the baby."
I said, "Honey, you won't have to call, but here's going to be the
message you're going to receive when this lady goes over to find out
about it, the lady's going to say, 'The baby has been awfully sick, but
it's all right now; God healed it last night.'"

E-35
And so she called up; my little boy, Billy Paul, and all of them
gathered around the phone, I said, "Watch these words, word by word."
So she called and got the lady, and said, "Go over cross the field and
ask the grandmother about the baby."
She said, "The baby's been awfully sick, but it's all right this morning."
Just word by word. Oh, friends, it would take hours to reveal; I
couldn't do it; it's unlimited, the things that He does. What is it? It
shows that "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today and forever." The
One that was back there with Elijah, the One was upon the Son of God,
Jesus Christ, the One that's in the church tonight, the Holy Spirit
knows the secret of every heart, and knows just what will be. Do you
believe that? Let's bow our heads.

E-36
Heavenly Father, bless tonight in a marvelous way. Thou knowest all
things, Lord, knows that I am not speaking of myself, but I'm speaking
of Thy Spirit which is here now. Oh, may the Angel of God come with
such anointing tonight, and these people that's here to be prayed for,
Lord, many of them, hundreds of them, and may they with one accord see
the glory of God. And if it be possible, if it's Thy Divine will
tonight, Father, may He appear right here on the platform visible, that
every eye in here might witness to see His great form. Oh, I know that
He stands near now.
God, help the unbelievers tonight to know that Thou art near, and Thy
servant has spoke the truth. Lord, if I speak the truth, then You'll
speak of it Yourself, for Thou art the Truth. You are the Truth, the
Way, the Light. And I've spoke of You, Father, and therefore I know it
is the truth. And not a worry but what You will a vindicate it to be
the truth tonight, before these Thy people. And may this be a great
glorious meeting, and may tomorrow afternoon, Lord, may literally
hundreds of souls find You. Tomorrow night give us the closing climax,
Lord, what we've prayed for through the entire meeting. Bless us now
together, for we ask it in the Name of Thy Son, Jesus. Amen.

E-37
Awfully late, this is Saturday; surely, you'll be able to rest a little
tomorrow. Everyone just as reverent as you can be now. Don't disturb.
I'm so happy to see these brethren here, just a whole line of these
recorders, and what a work they're doing for the Lord. These recordings
are being sent around the nation, and they're going into homes, and
into halls, and so forth. They even got it in a movie picture the other
day to introduce these things. And hundreds of people are being saved
and healed right through these recordings. Aren't you happy that man's
got the message on their heart. Maybe they're not preachers, but
they're trying to get the message to the people. Doctors they tell me,
and man of–of great standing in the world are out trying to win souls
for Christ.
God can use these things in a secondarily way like this, may the Lord
Jesus bless every one that hears the message. May they be saved and
healed.

E-38
Now, please dear friends, in the Name of the Lord, be just as reverent
and set quiet as you can for the next few moments, if you will. I will
try to be as hastily as I can. And then, I want to ask you one thing
just before we get the prayer line lined up, want to ask you something.
Now look, every person in here as far as I know, but my wife and Mr.
and Mrs. Roberson, Mr. and Mrs. Upshaw, and Miss Brown, that's the only
people that I know in this entire building that I can see or know
anywhere, unless it's Brother Bosworth back here, and Brother Richey,
and our brother here, Brother Baxter, my son.
Now, you're sick and troubled. And could you imagine? How would you
want to take my place, standing here now and know that here some,
between five and six thousand people perhaps, setting here and every
eye on you, and in there you can feel the cold waves of skeptic and
everything moving in now. Satan, restless, demon powers are moving in.
You ought to know how you feel. Just cold wave after wave; then here
comes faith moving in, here comes a cold wave moving in. Waves,
channels, just like this radio or whatever, television. Television is
waves, it materializes as the waves are brought in on a certain kind of
a crystal, or whatever it is.

E-39
And so does the power of Almighty God materialize. Vision materialize
in front of you just like radio, and just like television. If God has
called you to do so… You believe that? It does. It's proved. I'm
going to ask you to be just as quiet as you can, and don't stir around,
'cause you're certainly an interference. And all the Christians,
silently in your heart, pray for me, will you. And then, I am here
representing the God that you love. And some glorious day, you and I,
every person in here, will stand before God to give an account for our
lives and what we've done with Jesus Christ. I want to stand that day
and say, "With all my heart, dear God, when I was in New York, I tried
to represent You in every way that I could. And I'm thankful that You
come down and proved that what I was talking about was the truth." Then
it'll be up to you what you do with it. I'll be free then, as Paul of
old said, "I'm free of all men's blood." And I'll be free when that
time comes, if I testify the truth, and God proves that it's the truth.

E-40
Now, when someone's here on the platform being healed, let every person
out there suffering, let them believe right at that time. Believe for
yourself, and God will heal you. Accept it and believe it.
All right. Where's Billy?…?… where's…?… All right, let's just start from 50 then, from J-50. [Blank.spot.on.tape–Ed.]
Do you love Him? All your heart? Now, kinda get just as quiet as we can
before Him, so He can be where we're standing. Have you got the full
fifteen, Billy? Got about twenty in there. All right, every one just as
reverent as you can be now. All right, bring your patient. Everyone
just as quiet and reverent as you can be now.

E-41
How many up this way believes now? How many up this way believes? And
down in this way? On both sides? Oh, isn't that wonderful, Brother
Baxter? Brother Lindsay, look a there, or Brother Bosworth, Brother
Richey. We're something has to happen, friends, something just has… [Blank.spot.on.tape–Ed.]
God knows this, that the Angel of the Lord Who met me, said, "If you
get the people to believe you and be sincere when you pray, there'll be
nothing stand before your prayer." There'll be nothing. Just think of
that. No matter what disease you have; it won't stand before prayer if
you will believe. Now, what must you believe? Believe in God first.
Believe in the Son of God, Jesus Christ. Believe in the Holy Spirit.
Believe in Angels. And then you've got to believe me, that I'm telling
you the truth. Do you believe that? Now, that's wonderful.
I'm doing that for a purpose, friend. See, the enemy stands here to
fight at me (You see?), saying, "Oh, that bunch of New York people,
they don't believe." But the Holy Spirit's here saying, "They're wrong;
it's wrong, they do believe." And that gives me the initiative side to
walk out. You see? All right.

E-42
Here's a lady standing here, you're the patient, aren't you, lady? All
right. Now, this lady wants to get well. I don't know one thing about
the lady, I've nev… God knows, I've never seen her in my life,
knowingly. She's a total stranger to me; I know nothing of her. There's
anything in the world that I know, God will have to reveal it to me.
Now, I don't know; I couldn't do one thing about her healing, because
she's already been healed. Nineteen hundred years ago Jesus Christ put
in Calvary what she needs to be healed by. Now, the only thing she has
to do is accept it. And according to her faith, it'll be to her. If she
believes spontaneously right now, great faith over her head, she'll go
right on and be healed here. If she believes that much it'll take her
two, few weeks to get well. If she's down to a mustard seed, if she'll
just have that kind of faith, hold on to it, it'll bring you right out
to the light; just stay with it. Believe it, testify of it, confess it,
and God will bring it to pass.

E-43
Now, everyone reverent. And everyone out here now, without prayer
cards, raise your hand, and wants to be prayed for. Everybody without
prayer cards, hasn't got prayer cards, raise your hand. All right,
that's the way. Now, be reverent.
Now, you look this a way, anywhere in the building, and believe that
that is the truth, and if you're sick, accept Jesus as your healer, and
say, "Lord God, to confirm my faith, to confirm my faith, let Brother
Branham call me back. Let Brother Branham call me out here and tell me
that I've been healed." Will you do that? And if you'll just not–just
not, just kinda haphazardly go into it, but really with all your heart
believe it, God will pull my attention from this platform and show me
what's taking place out there, and will call you, what you are, who you
are, what your name is, and all about it. You believe that? All right,
now, be in prayer now, everybody reverent.

E-44
Father, help us now. Here stands a woman, standing here by my side. I
know her not. You know her, Lord. You know what she is, You fed her
ever since she's been on earth, every breath that she's drawed is been
by Your Divine grace. Every bit of food she's ever eat is by Your
Divine grace. And I pray Thee, Lord, that if she's standing here sick
and afflicted, that You will let the Spirit that was upon Your Son,
Christ Jesus, come down upon this poor unworthy vessel.
Unworthy is right, Lord, but if You were looking for holy hands
tonight, where would You find them? We've all sinned and come short of
the glory. But oh, how we're encouraged to read in the Scripture, that
Elijah was a man subject to like passions as we are. It wasn't his–his
morals, it was what You'd called him to be, and what he done with the
gift that You give him. Now help, dear God, that Your power that would
reveal to the woman her sins at the well, tell Philip of where he was
at, their needs and causes. May He come tonight. As I've testified of
You, now Father, testify that I've told the truth. And these people
will believe You and be healed. For we ask it in Jesus' Name. Amen.

E-45
Brother Baxter, I don't want you too far away now for a moment. Now,
can you hear all right, back at the back? When sometime the anointing
gets real heavy, I–they say I don't speak loud enough. You'll watch
that, will you, brethren, somewhere?
Now, lady, you and I be strangers; I do not know you. I'm wholly,
fully, depending on Jesus Christ. And here you are, and here's several
thousand people setting here tonight, and they are looking. Many of
them has raised their hands as Christians. And they believe, and
believe that I've told the truth. Now, see what a position that puts me
in. And here you come up out of the audience there, perfect stranger,
received a prayer card with a number on it, and here you come up.
Happened to be your number was called. And you're the first one for the
night. My, how wonderful.

E-46
Now, if I'm able to know anything… I see you're breathing awful fast.
I want you just to be, not excited, just be reverent. See? Have faith
in God. Are you aware of something strange? Now, that's the Angel of
the Lord. Audience, I wished you could just everyone be close enough
now to feel what this is moving down; It's settling; It's coming right
in from my right-hand side now, the Angel of God Who I'll have to stand
before that day at the judgment, moving upon me. The lady's becoming
very conscious of it now.
I see a vision moving out; she's moving away from me now. Oh, what a
Light. Look to me, sister. You're trying to believe, aren't you?
Suffering with asthma for one thing. You've had that for some time too.
Say, I see you under an operation or something; that's been some time
also. See a dark complected doctor, seems to be saying, there's someone
waiting for you in a hall with a gray suit on.
I see a man coming near you, yes, you got a, you're suffering now also
from an examination rec… a tumor. Isn't that right? That tumor's
located on your breast, isn't it, left breast, on the left side? I see
the side of the table you're laying on from where they're looking.
Don't be fearful; it leaves me now, just a moment. You're wanting to
serve God in a different category than what you serve Him in too. You
promised God if you could get well, that you would go on and seek
deeper things of God, haven't you? You were praying near a side of a
bed where a chair was laying, setting. Is that right? And little green
looking thing hanging there on the side of the wall. Isn't that right?
In the room. Do you believe me as His prophet? Will accept what I tell
you? Will you accept Jesus as your Healer now? Raise up your hand, say,
"I now accept Jesus Christ as my Healer." Go in peace, Jesus Christ
will make thee whole. You go on your road rejoicing now, and get over
your sickness. Go this a way, just rejoicing.

E-47
Let us say, "Praise be to God." Now, everyone reverent. I want everyone
to be aware that the things that I speak is not myself; that's not my
voice; it's my voice, but not me using it. I go into another place and
see what's materializing in front of me. The people move away. I at
this time cannot tell you what was wrong with the person I just prayed
for. I just seen a vision, and I just have to speak it as it comes to
me. And then the person witnesses after it leaves me that it's right or
wrong. All right, bring the patient. And everybody real reverent.
How do you do, sir? Perceive, of course, by your dress that you're a
minister. Would you come just a little closer, sir? Our Christ is
wonderful, isn't he, brother? I see you're quite a believer. Yes, sir,
I do. Say, you have a ministry of praying for the sick yourself. You
pray for the sick, don't you? You write much literature and stuff on
the same, don't you? You come from Canada, don't you? That's right.
You're suffering with something wrong in your bowels. I say it's…
It's cancer of the bowels, is what it is. It's got ulcerated, begin to
start causing you much trouble. Isn't that true? My brother, let me
have your hand.

E-48
Merciful God, I hold now in mine the hand that pens the words that
brings relief and for this suffering. Satan is trying to destroy this
warrior. But Thou art here to heal him. Almighty God, Author of Life
and Giver of every good gift, send Thy blessings upon my brother, as I
speak in Thy Name. And God if Thy servant has found favor in Your
sight, spare the life of my brother. And may from this night on, that
clear up from him and may he be a warrior on the fields up there
that'll cause literally thousands to find great help. Grant it, Lord.
And I now curse this demon called cancer in the Name of Jesus Christ,
may it come out of him, and may the man live. God bless you, my
brother. Your gallant faith has saved you; you're going home. And your
ministry's going to increase, and you're going to do more for the Lord
than you've ever done. God bless you, my brother.
Let us say, "Praise be to God."

E-49 Do you know that man, Brother Baxter? Well, let's say, "Praise the Lord." [Brother
Baxter speaks: "I'd just like to say one thing about this man; he
corresponded with me about coming to New York. I said, 'Come.' I said,
'There was nothing I could promise.' When Brother Branham said that the
man had written literature, I was about ready to jump, because his last
letter to me, he sent me some of his literature on Divine healing.
Everything Brother Branham said about the man is true, and Brother
Branham didn't know it."–Ed.]

I only can say what God has showed me to and tells me to say. But only
I can see him materializing in front of me, that I can do. Nothing else
I cannot do. But the man is not going to die with the cancer; he's
going to live. All right, bring the patient.

E-50
How do you do, sister? Would you just come a little closer? I just want
you near so that I know when It starts speaking, that'll–your voice
will be caught in the microphone. You see? I perceive that you are a
Christian. Yes. You've been very much worried lately. You are…
Something has been bothering you. I see when you're standing in the
room, you're worried. Say, it's in your… It's a tumor, isn't it? It's
a tumor that's bothering you. And that tumor, I see you showing it;
it's–it's in your mouth, isn't it? It's a tumor in your mouth; that is
right. There's something happened then, didn't it? The life of the
tumor left, sister. You go home to be well. In the Name of the Lord
Jesus, make…
Let us say, "Praise be to God," Who giveth us the victory through Jesus Christ our Lord. All right, will the lady come, please.

E-51
Oh, what a marvelous time. You just should feel now. Faith is just
moving everywhere now, just moving in. How wonderful. Oh, if I only
could get this one thing to the people just now. What would take place,
it would be unknown to the glory that would be.
Now, let's see, you're… Excuse me, sister, it kinda gets a little
beside myself. Come just a little closer. I–I–I don't believe humanly
speaking, that I ever seen you. We strangers? Yes, ma'am. Now, I'm just
merely trying to he–help you. You are a Christian with the Holy Spirit
now. What a joy that was, when you received It. I see you crying and
waving your hand. Now, you're trouble now is suffering; you're awfully
nervous; that's been on you for some time. That's caused by your age,
your time of life, menopause. Then I see you have a female disorder
that's bothering you, isn't it? Yes, ma'am. Upset at the stomach a lot.
Isn't that true? Is that true, what was said? You believe me as His
prophet? Raise up your hand, say, "Jesus Christ, I now believe that You
died for my healing. I accept my healing now." God bless you, sister,
go eat anything you want to, that drainage will stop. It was an abscess
on the ovary, but you're going to be all right now, go. God bless you.

E-52
Let's say, "Praise be to God." Everyone reverent if you will, please,
just reverent, just a few moments. Don't move around, it interrupts me
so bad here. If you just knowed how the pressure of move and how the
friction between the people. See, you're in a line of–of supernatural.
And just the least move you can feel Him; it's interfering, and that
throws me out up here. Please, be reverent. No wonder Jesus took a
man… You say, "Brother Branham, what about that?"
Why, Jesus took a man by the hand and led him outside the city to get
away from the crowd. Isn't that right? It was written, "Look upon us,"
said Peter and John.
All right, come, sir. Be real reverent please, just a moment. I know
it's late, but think of the suffering. You'd wait at Mayo's Clinic day
in and out. I was at the Mayo's Clinic two years ago. And the marvelous
thing, what thrills my heart, at the Mayo Clinic two weeks ago, wrote
for my little book that you're getting back there on the stand, on
Divine healing to go in their–in their lab–in their library for their
students. Mayo's Clinic wrote for my book on Divine healing, and they
want to know how these miracles taken place. They can't deny but what
it's going on, but they want to study how it's done. Praise God. Here's
a book that reveals it all. God's secret.

E-53
All right, brother, you believe with all your heart? Your diabetes is
gone from you, so you can go off the platform and be happy.
All right, let's say, "Praise be to God." All right, bring the lady.
Sister, have faith. You was suffering with the same thing, wasn't you?
You go off the platform, get well too in the Name of the Lord. Amen.
You believe with all your heart? Every one be reverent. What about way
back there now, go to believing; I believe the Lord is going to break
through upon this audience in a few moments. Have faith in God. Don't
doubt; believe.

E-54
What do you think about it, setting there? Well, lady in that
wheelchair, what do you think about it? Follow the instructions of the
nurse. She knows of God. All right. What do you think, sir, laying on
the wheelchair? Are you believing with all your heart? Have faith now.
God can make… He's already done it, if your faith will just mount up.
Have faith; don't doubt.
All of you in the line, you going to believe now? All right, bring the lady on.
Standing in our midst just now, I look down and see Congressman Upshaw
who had been an invalid for sixty-six years. Run for president of the
United States, known all over the nation, everywhere, in England. The
man had been to a place… And the same thing is taking place right
here, is the same thing when he was wheeled into California in one of
the meetings. I seen the man being hurt and all he went through with.
And there, setting there, been an invalid for sixty-six years; I said,
"I see a young boy; he's hurt on by a hay frame near a haystack." Told
the kind of a doctor and so forth, and all that he had done. And so
when Brother Baxter come told me, said, "That…"

E-55
I seen where he was setting, and the man there said, "Why, that man's a
congressman. He's been like that for years." And I started to leave.
When I started to leave, I seen Mr. Upshaw without crutches, or
wheelchair, or anything, going, walking just as nimble as he could be.
And there that man, after being crippled for sixty-six years, I said,
"THUS SAITH THE LORD."
Here he is tonight, eighty-five years old, as nimble as any man thirty
in the building. Look like if he'd have got healed, he'd got healed
back there when his bones was, had good calcium and stuff. But God in
His power showed that He could do all things. He's a God that was…
Here He is now waving His hands to you. Amazing Grace, how sweet the
sound.

E-56 All right, lady, your heart trouble left you while you were standing there. Go on the road rejoicing and be happy.
Come,
lady, believe with all your heart? Wouldn't you like to lose that old
tumor? You'd go off the platform being happy. It's gone from you. Let's
say, "Praise be to God."
Someone out there pray now, accept Jesus. Accept Him as your Healer
now. In your heart say, "I believe." Way back in the back, up in there.
Please everyone, be reverent; be reverent if you will. Don't doubt;
believe.
Come, lady, have faith. How do you do, sister? Just want to talk to you
a moment. Yes, ma'am. You–you think you got everything wrong with you,
heart trouble. That heart trouble's caused from indigestion; you have
it worse when you lay down after eating, don't you? Your whole
trouble's nervousness, isn't that right? You–it's a mental nervousness
too; I see you–you holding your head like this and walking; you think
sometimes you've lost your mind. Isn't that right? But Jesus Christ
heals you now. Go on your road rejoicing. God bless you, you…
Let's say, "Praise be to God."

E-57
All right, come, sir. Do you believe with all your heart? Then you
won't have heart trouble no more; you can go off the platform and be
well. God bless you, my brother.
Let's say, "Praise be to God."
I see a man setting there pulling his knees and praying and crying;
he's got something stuffed in his ear. You believe, sir? 'Course I see
you got something wrong with your ear. God's able to heal that ear,
isn't He? You believe it? Stand up just a minute. Oh, it's not so much
ear trouble; it's stomach trouble you're bothered with. Isn't that
right? If that's right, raise your hand. That's right. Go home and eat
what you want to; Jesus Christ makes you well. Amen. Now you all can be
happy.
All right, come, sister. I see between you and I drips a blood, it
looks real clear. Look like it's got sugar or water in it. You're
anemia, aren't you? Go off the platform and receive a transfusion from
Calvary by Jesus Christ, the Son of God. God bless you.
Let's say, "Praise the Lord." All right, bring your patient.

E-58
Will you believe sister, with all your heart as you come? I see you're
really sick, feeling the pressure of the enemy. You're suffering with
cancer, aren't you? Come here a minute. Lay your handkerchief right
here. You believe me as His prophet? Come here, want you look at my
hand. Just an ordinary man's hand, isn't it? I want you to put your
hand here on mine, so you touch me. Now, look what happened. See it
swell up and those white things running across it. Now, I'm going to
take your hand off, going to put my hand on. It's not there now is it?
I want to put your other hand on here. It isn't there now, is it? Well,
you're just as much human in this hand as you are in that hand. Come
here Brother Baxter; put your hand here on, not there now, is it? Come
here Billy Paul; it's not there now, is it? It's not there now. Now,
put your hand on there, but it is now. Is that right? If that's true
hold this hand up so the audience will see?
Now, my hand turns real dark red and white like things running over it,
is that right? Them little, it's like little pimples or bumps running
across my hand. Now, watch how they come and go: there they come; there
they move; here they come again. You know what? That's a life, a
cancer, a malignant growth which is in you multiplying cells, trying to
take your life.

E-59
I see you've done much praying about this too, haven't you? Seem like
without any results. You tried to believe; you tried to accept it.
Prayed for not long ago, and you thought you really going to be all
right then, but it's proved that it wasn't so. Isn't that right? I'm
not reading your mind; but I see the place where you were standing.
That's right. But when you heard that I, or seen… I believe you seen
something, read something that you… I see you looking down, and then
I heard you say, "When I… Brother Branham, when I go to his meeting,
he prays for me, I'm going to get well." Did you say that? Raise your
hand if that's true. Then your faith has saved you, sister, where's the
vibrations at now? They're gone. Now, you can go and live. God bless
you, my… Let's say, "Praise the Lord."

E-60
No prayer, your faith makes you whole. Is that right? You're happy, are
you? That's right. And He healed you of heart trouble just then. Now,
you can go off the platform happy, 'cause you don't have heart trouble
no more. Let's say, "Praise the Lord," everyone.
What about you, sister, do you believe me with all your heart? You
believe that I be God's prophet? You been suffering with a nervous,
haven't you? Stand up on your feet and be well. In the Name of the Lord
Jesus, and go out of the… God bless you, sister, you won't have those
feelings no more now, go and rejoice. Let's say, "Praise the Lord."
Just feeling something… It's different now, isn't it, brother? Amen.
Amen. That's right. Amen. Your faith has saved you, my brother.
All right, come, sister. You want to get over that asthma? Raise up
your hand and say, "I accept You Jesus as my Healer." God bless you. I
lay hands on you according to the Word, said, "These signs shall follow
them that believe; if they lay hands on the sick, they shall recover."
In the Name of the Lord Jesus, go and be made well.

E-61
You want to be healed out there? You believe with all your heart? I see
the little lady; you feel different about that nervousness now, don't
you, sister? Was just healed, you feel different: quieter, certainly
you do. Now, let everyone be reverent.
You could only know, my Christian friend, what's taking place just now.
I look out there, thinking now of calling another prayer line, another
number just in a minute. What you got your hand up for, lady? You
believe me? Lady with the red hat on there, you believe me as God's
prophet? You believe God can reveal to me what is wrong with you there?
Look at me just a minute. Yes, you suffer with a tumor, aren't you?
Isn't that right? I see him exam… That's tumor's on the left leg,
isn't it? Isn't that right? If it is, wave your hand back and forth
like that. Go home and receive your healing, sister. In the Name of the
Lord Jesus, He makes you whole.

E-62
Who wants to be healed? Who wants to believe? Now, may our heavenly
Father speak to me just now. I see a man standing right here, right in
this way; he's kind of a heavy set man; he's holding him… Oh, yes,
he's suffering with a–with a rupture. I see where I can see the man;
he went out of my vision just then, standing right…
Here sets a man setting right here, kind of thin hair, big man. Oh,
didn't you have a rupture, hernia? That's right. God bless you, my
brother, may the Lord Jesus make you every whit whole.
Just a moment, I see a man standing before me now, coming this a way,
kind of a thin fellow, wearing a gray suit and a purple tie. There he
sets right down there. Stand up just a minute, sir. Huh? The man there
with the purple tie on, kind of thin looking man… Oh, yes, you're
suffering with–with stomach trouble, is that right? And say, you have
something wrong with your bladder too, don't you? Isn't it a bladder
trouble, ulcerated bladder, is that right? Raise up your hand. Receive
your healing, my brother. In the Name of the Lord Jesus.

E-63
Just a moment. Now, be reverent friends, I'm getting terribly weak.
Just a moment, believe now with all of your heart. Now, I see a man
coming this a way, coming right down through here. Just a moment. The
man has something wrong with his… I see, no, it's… He's examining,
a doctor looking at him. He stops and comes back this a way; he's
moving, yes, it's–it's his liver. He's got liver trouble. I see the
man now, here he… There sets the man, setting right there. Don't you
have liver trouble, sir? Swollen liver, isn't that right? Raise up on
your feet and receive your healing, my brother. In the Name of the Lord
Jesus Christ.
Is there anyone else in here wants to be healed, that would accept
Jesus as their Healer? Have faith in God. Don't doubt. Believe. Now,
will you believe me? Have I told you the truth? Has Almighty God been
here to vindicate that I've told the truth? You believe that's so?
Believe me as His prophet: Jesus Christ the Son of God, has healed
everyone of you. He don't have to take you. The whole thing's moving so
now, I don't know whether I can see one or not. But will you do, and do
as I ask you to do? Lay your hands over on one another like this. Put
your hands on one another, please. Come here, Brother Richey, Brother
Bosworth, somebody right quick, come here. Give me a drink of water,
right quick…?… I'm sorry, this my…?… I'm getting so weak I
can't hardly stand up.
O God, Author of Life, Giver of mercy, send Thy blessings upon this
people and bless them, Lord. Heal them everyone, in the Name of Thy Son
Jesus. I curse every disease in here in Name of the Lord…?…
