57-0307 - Madison Square Garden, Phoenix, AZ (Paragraphs: 69 - 84)
L-70 What am I waiting for? A vision. It may be me. No. Here it is. Hallelujah. I knew You would not leave me alone. I stood true to that Word. Praise be to God. You don't know how I feel in my heart, now. I thought I was going to have to walk from the pulpit, but He knows my heart.
Here's a quiet, little woman setting right here on the end of the seat, right here at the end of the row. She's praying. She's got a Bible laying on her lap. She's praying for someone else. That's right. Got heart trouble. Isn't that right, lady? It's her brother. If that's right, raise up your hand. You have no prayer card or nothing. Do you believe me to be God's servant? Then Christ lives tonight, and I've told the truth, and Christ is here to vindicate it truth. If thou canst believe, all things are possible. I'm very happy for the Lord God. [Mark 9:23]
L-71 A little lady setting behind her, a finger up against her nose, just at this time, putting it down on her throat--got heart trouble too. That's right. And you've got trouble with your eyes, haven't you? Your eyes are going dim. That's right. I'm not reading your mind. But there's a Light hanging over you, the same Light that led the children of Israel, the same Light that became flesh, and dwelled among us, the same One that turned back to Light, when His corporal body was raised up into heaven, and Paul seen Him on the road to Damascus, there He is again. You got trouble with your eyes; you've got trouble with your heart. Do you believe me to be God's servant? If that's true, raise up your hands, and wave them. Now, the audience be the judge. Have you a prayer card. Don't have no prayer card. All right. You can be healed now and be well, if thou canst believe. [Hebrews 4:15], [Acts 22:6], [Mark 9:23]
L-72 What are you thinking, that's setting next to her there, lady? You're praying too. Do you believe with all your heart? There'll be three, if God will reveal it. Three's the confirmation. Are we strangers to one another, lady? I mean the little lady, with her hand up, back here, with her handkerchief. Another lady... I'm watching the lady. I've got a contact with her, by the Holy Spirit, 'cause there's a Light right over her. You're aware that something is going on, aren't you? You are praying for somebody else. That's right, isn't it? If I tell you who you're praying for, you believe me to be His prophet? Your mother. Now, will--would you believe me now, being that the Holy Spirit has struck you? Your mother's not here. Your mother is suffering with arthritis. She's got heart trouble, and she's got something wrong with her breast. It's a cancer on her breast. And she's in Ar... She lives in Arkansas. Exactly right, I see the fields and swamps. That's exactly right. Now, if that's right raise up your handkerchief, and wave it to the audience. There you are. Do you believe?
L-73 The armour of God is supernatural. If thou canst believe. The Bible said, "In the mouth of three witnesses..." There's three witnesses. Ask them if I ever knowed them or anything. It's not me; it's Christ. "If thou canst believe," He said, "all things are possible."
Little lady setting here with your head bowed, suffering with a Bright's disease. Yeah. Do you believe with all your heart? Kinda struck you. You was praying, wasn't you? Do you believe me to be His servant? Have Bright's disease. That's right. That's right. I don't know you, do I, lady? I'm a stranger to you, but God does know you. That's right. There's some connection about a minister. Your husband's a preacher. That's right. Your name is Flossy. That's right. Your last name is Woodward. That's right. I see you standing by a street called Willetta. That's right. And your number is 3322 West Willetta Street. If that's right, raise up your hand. Do you believe me to be God's prophet? Then get what you asked for, in Christ's Name.
What about you, way back?
What do you think, young man, my book laying on your lap--Mexican boy? Do you believe? You'll get over that epilepsy, if you believe with all your heart. You believe you will? You're from California, aren't you? That's right, raise up your hand. That's true. Now, be seated. [Mark 9:23], [Matthew 18:16]
L-74 What do you think, the white woman setting there next to him? Do you believe, with all your heart? Lady, you have heart trouble, too. You have gallbladder troubles, gall stones in the gallbladder. You're not from this country. You're from the east, way extreme east. You're from Baltimore, Maryland. Raise up your hand, if that is true. All right. Do you believe?
There's the Angel of the Lord standing over a kind of a middle-aged woman, setting on the outside of the row. She's suffering with gangrene from an operation. That's right, little lady. You're from Mesa. You're wearing glasses; you've got a brown pocketbook. If thou canst believe with all your heart, you can have that which you ask for. Do you believe it? [Mark 9:23]
L-75 How many of the rest of you believe it? With all your heart? The spirit of the Lord Jesus is here. God has confirmed the Word that it's the truth. I wonder, if every man and woman, boy or girl, that believes, and sees that there's something here, there's something that's got me under His control, right now. And if that ain't the Bible sign that Jesus Christ said would be, then I'm a false prophet. If Jesus didn't do this very same thing, and said that his disciples would do the same things, prove it to me by the Bible. That's right.
Now, how many of you believe in a... and you that raised hand, will you walk down here just a minute, right here, before we finish praying for the sick? Walk right down here, you that raised your hand, and wants to come to Christ. Will you come right down here? I want stand here, and shake hands with you or do something, pray with you.
While our sister gives us a little chord on... Don't leave. Stay still everybody. Come right out. That's it, mister. Come out...?... lady. Come down out of the balcony, now, come on. I'm just going to wait a minute. That's right. Come on. I ain't going to call or beg. If the Holy Spirit can't stop you like this, or touch you, then there's no need of me trying any farther. If the Word won't do it, and the Spirit with the Word, then I believe it's beyond hope. Was you sincere, when you raised your hand a while ago? I believe you were. I took your Word; God did too. Will you come here and stand? [Brother Branham prays--Ed.]
I want to pray for you. God bless you. God bless you. God bless you. God bless you, Dad. Maybe a many a day you've wasted away, but now this is it. God bless you, young man. I hope God calls you into the ministry, and makes a preacher out of you. God bless you, brother. God bless you, brother, I seen you setting back there. Just barely could raise. I hope God calls you in the ministry and makes a real preacher out of you. Come right here and stand. Come in this way, will you folks?
God bless you, my sister, we'll stand right here beside him, if you will, just a moment. Come right in here, will you? God bless you, my sister. God bless you, my sister. God bless you, my brother. God bless you, my sister. Come here, brother.
L-76 Softly and tenderly, Jesus is calling. That's right little lady, come right on down--a whole group coming at once. Little Spanish girl... Will you come out of the balconies, everywhere. Come right on down.
Oh, Sinner, come home.
Softly and tenderly, Jesus is calling.
... on the port... (God bless you my brother, sister. Come, right down here. Will you come on down? All the congregation singing now.)
Calling, oh sinner, come home.
Come home... (Won't you come?) Come home.
Oh, ye who are weary, come home...
Ern... (Won't you come? I offer you Christ, by the Word, by the Spirit. Come now, won't you? If you're weary... )
Oh, sinner, come home.
L-77 God bless you, lady, walking alone, but that's all right, somebody's walking with you, sister dear. Don't never forget that.
L-78 Now, friends, if you go from this place tonight, without Christ in your heart, as the Word of the Gospel being planted, and the Holy Spirit coming right down, and bringing that Word to life, and proving it by the Bible, not anything outside the Bible, not a fantastic. A real Bible, Holy Spirit, that was on our Lord Jesus, coming right down energizing the vine. and bringing forth the very same thing on the branches, that He did when He was here on earth, to fulfill the Word, "I'll be with you to the end of the world." Then He stands on it.
Now, at the judgment day--at the judgment day, don't point your finger to me, for I'm free. Hear it? I'm free. Don't point your finger to God. He sent His Word and confirmed It. He's absolutely free. What about it now? If I'd have been a church member forty years, and the Holy Spirit was telling me that I was not a real borned again saint of God, I'd make my way to this altar, right now. Won't you do it while we sing once more? [Matthew 28:20]
L-79 Let the ministers come now, around here, so they can be with these people. These people, who are standing here, will want a church home, and these pastors, who are cooperating here in this meeting, they're men who believe this message. They believe the Word. They'll do you good. Make your church home somewhere. Be baptized, and go into the church. Be filled with the Holy Ghost. Now, while we sing. Let them come now who will come, and the workers, and the personal workers, and the ministers, come along while we sing once more, then we're going to pray for the sick, and then we are going to ask prayer for these. All right. [Luke 17:12]
Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus... (Won't you come?)
Calling for you, for me.
Seems on the portals, He's waiting, and watching. Watching for you, and for me.
Come home, come home,
Ye who are weary, come home. (Won't you come? Is this all that raised their hand?)
...tend... (Will you come and offer God thanks? What about the lepers? Jesus said, "Wasn't there ten? Where's the other nine?")
Calling, Oh, sinner, come...
L-80 Now, with our heads bowed, I want to ask this solemn question: "Church of the Living God, can you see the unsincerity? Can you see that the old pond of the United States is about seined out? The last soul's about gone in. Can you see why we rally for the overseas. A message of that type, solidly on good gospel teaching, and a sign and miracles, taking place in a meeting like that, ten thousand to a hundred, or two hundred thousand would come at one time to Christ. Then you wonder sometimes, what am I doing? What am I doing? I love you. I cast the net. And some who would raise your hand, and then not with the sincerity enough to come offer God thanks, after God being good enough to knock at your door.
Many setting here tonight... Don't tell me, I know what I am talking about. There's men and women, setting right here tonight, that knows that the Holy Spirit's told you to come up here. I'm just as positive of that, as I know these other things. That's right. But He will call. But remember, someday you'll call, and He will act to you as you act to Him now. You'll always reap what you sow. Now, it's up to you. I'll leave it to you. [Micah 6:15], [Matthew 6:26]
L-81 Now, to the sick and the afflicted, before we pray for these that's here. I want to offer prayer for you.
Heavenly Father, in the Name of the Lord Jesus, I pray the prayer of faith, the best that I know how. With all my heart, with all that is within me, Christ, I have told them, that You're work of healing is a finished work. It's been finished two thousand years. It's for their faith to believe it. And You have come down, and so loved us tonight, You have vindicated the Truth and proved it to them, that they could set in this audience and start praying, You'd turn right back around, and--and tell them who they was, and where they come from, and all about it, and what they were praying for, and heal them. God, what could a--what could be left but judgment, when mercy is spurned.
God, I don't mean to be a rough preacher. I don't mean to do that God, You know it, but how can I say anything, 'less you put in my mouth. It's not premeditated. I know not what to say. You said, "Open your mouth, I'll fill it." And I do it, Lord, and I believe You. [Psalms 81:10]
L-82 And I will pray for these sick and afflicted, just now, with all my faith, that You'll heal every one that's in Divine presence now. May they know that it's You, and just reach up, and take a hold of You, and Your promise, and be healed.
Then around this altar, Lord, healing in a greater measure, in a more higher measure, in the highest plane that there is--eternal healing--eternal Spirit, making eternal creatures out of creatures of time. How wonderful. These men and women raised their hands. They were grateful that You did offer them Eternal Life, and they've come here to make a public confession, that they believe You, and are repenting of their sins, and offering to You thanksgiving for the things that You've done for them.
And now, Lord God my Saviour, You, Who come in Your Word, You Who do all things well, and You said, "No man can come to Me, except My Father draws him. And all that comes, I'll give them Everlasting Life. No man can pluck them from My hand. I will in no wise turn them out. He that heareth My Word, believeth on Him that sent Me, hath Everlasting Life, and shall never come to the judgment, but's passed from death to life." [John 6:44], [John 10:28], [John 5:24]
L-83 God, I know You've done that for these people, because they've come under conviction. And now, Lord God, while men and women who are standing around them, who's been chosen by this fine ministerial group to be personal workers, and some are ministers themselves, who's experience, by receiving the Holy Spirit, they're standing here to lay hands on them, that they will receive the Holy Ghost. And I pray, God, that You'll fill everyone in the Divine presence, without the Holy Ghost, that they will receive the baptism of the Holy Ghost, right now, right this hour, as I commit them to Thee, in Jesus Christ's Name.
L-84 Now, raise your hands and praise Him. You people, lay your hands on them. And while I'm tired, and I asking, brother here, if he will continue the prayer for them, that I am so tired and weak, that I must leave at this time. And God bless you. Put your hands over on these children, over on these people. Ministers of the gospel, walk out here. Oh, if the Holy Ghost was...?... in here. Walk up there you people and do something...

57-0308 - Madison Square Garden, Phoenix, AZ (Paragraphs: 52 - 67)
L-53 How do you do, lady? Now, I... This is the time where God must speak. Of all I've said would be not right if Jesus doesn't speak Himself. Can you all understand that? Now, I put myself here in a position, that whether this Bible has got to be right or It's got to be wrong now. This is the sealing time.
Now, the woman standing here, so far as I know, I never seen her in my life. We're strangers, are we? We're probably born many miles apart, and years apart, and this is the first time we ever met. Now, if this ain't a exact picture of Saint John 4 again, a man and a woman... Now, what if this woman wants healing? Could I heal her? No, sir. Could I do anything for her towards healing? No, sir. Everything that can be done...
L-54 Now, if she's got a--if she's got something or another that they could, the doctor could help her, or give her something... Now, the doctor can't heal her, no, no. Doctors don't heal. God heals; doctors just set bones and take away pieces, obstruction, if something has went bad, they take it out, something like that. Or give you some, as I said the other night, some rat poisoning to poison the rats that's in you, the germs. But he can't build back those tissues. God stands in creation alone. He can cut a side open take a tumor out, but who's going to heal that side? You better not never raise up if God don't heal it. He can cut, take away, but can't heal up. See what I mean?
Now, what if she wants finance trouble? What if she wants--it's domestic trouble. What if it's some... What if it's sin? All that she has need for, is in Christ. Now, if Christ will reveal to me what the woman's here for, will every person believe with all your heart? The little lady will tell you...
L-55 We don't believe in swearing; the Bible don't say... If you can't take people's word for it, why, just--that's just it. The Bible said, "Don't swear by heavens nor by earth." Don't swear at all.
I never saw the woman in my life as I know. And she said I don't know her. And she doesn't know me, less she sat out in the audience somewhere and watched me. But God knows all about her. And if this little woman right here, if the Holy Spirit would come and do the same thing to this woman that He did to the woman at the well of Samaria, find out where her troubles is, and what she's here for, what she has need of, and reveal it to her... You know what that Samaritan woman said? "We know that when the Messiah cometh He will do these things."
That's a sign that our God, that you Christians, newborn Christians just accepted is not dead but is alive here with us tonight. Now, everybody in the building that don't have a prayer card and you want God to heal you, raise up your hand. All right. It's just almost everywhere. Now, have faith. [Matthew 5:34], [John 4:25]
L-56 Now, I want just to speak to you, lady. Just merely... After preaching like that, making an altar call... I just want to talk to you a minute. Well, you say, "What would you want to talk to me for, Brother Branham?" Catch your spirit. Just like...
Why did Jesus want to talk to the woman at the well? Catch her spirit. Said, "Bring Me a drink."
Said, "It's not customary for You to ask that."
They went ahead talking at length. Finally Jesus found where her trouble was. And I don't believe that the woman would've ever answered Him. You don't have to answer me, but He'd knowed her trouble anyhow, if God would revealed it to Him. You believe that?
If I could help you, lady, and wouldn't do it, I'd be a brute. But I... Only way I could do, would be preach the Word or by a Divine gift. Is that right? Then you'd accept it.
You're here for a trouble in your back. And that trouble is a--a rupture; it's a ruptured disk in your back. That's true. Now, do you believe? The woman be the judge. See? [John 4:7-9]
L-57 Now, what ought to happen, the entire group should say, "Lord Jesus, I believe in You. You're alive. Your Word said You'd do that. We're living in the last days in the atomic age when You said about time for You to come, "Lift up your head." You said, "At that time these things would be taking place. And here I see it by Your Word. I now believe You're here. I accept You for my Healer. That settles it." That ought to do it.
God told Moses, "Go down and do this sign." And said, "They'll believe you." He did the sign, and they believed him. And they marched along. But our Shepherd, the Lord Jesus, can come and do the sign, we Gentiles set back and say, "Now, I don't know whether that's Him or not." That's why we miss the blessing.
Now, here, like talking to the woman... Now, I don't know what I told her. I couldn't tell you. But I could find out just a moment. There's my tape artist up there. They have it, every word that's muttered. See? [Luke 21:28]
L-58 But now, just to set and talk to the woman a few moments, would it--would it make you feel better if I just--just maybe... He would--might not say nothing else. But if He does, would it increase your faith if He would? Would it you, lady? If He'd... All right, how many say it would increase your faith, let's see your hands so that you'd believe on the Lord Jesus.
Now, lady, just--just using you for one. May the Lord grant it is my prayer. But I want you to look this way just again, and see if the Holy Spirit would do what He promised He would do. He will do it, that is, if He will permit me. This is a gift. I don't operate the gift; the gift operates me. You're the one that's doing it. If you got faith, it's your faith, like the woman touched His garment.
Now, if the audience still hears me, the woman, yes, it's in her back. It's a trouble in her back; I see it again. And He said that it was a--a ruptured disk; it's a disk in the back that's ruptured. And there's someone else with you, and that woman is suffering with a nervous condition. That's right. She lives in this house, the same place you do. Her name is Bidwell. That's right. And you live like 1315 Pierce. That's right. Your name is Edna Anderson. That's right. Do you believe now?
Oh, gracious God of heaven, have mercy upon us, Thy poor subjects, and bless this woman for whatever she has need of. I pray in Christ's Name. Amen. God bless you, lady.
L-59 How do you do? I am a stranger to you. I suppose you're an Indian. Well, I have a great respect for your nationality. After all, you're the true American. God gave you this land. Now, I'm just one out of millions, but you may feel, and I do too, that you got a raw deal out of it. God gave you land; the white man come took it away from you. But I know One that won't give you a bad deal; that's the Lord Jesus.
You are suffering from an extreme nervous condition. And then you've been to a doctor. And the doctor told you that you should be operated on, and that was for kidney condition; it's in the back. And it's your left kidney that they want to take out.
O God of heaven, send Thy blessings upon the woman and bless her; I ask through Jesus' Name. Amen. God bless you, lady, give to you that which you are asking for.
Now, the Lord Jesus does know all things, doesn't He? He knows you and He knows me. He knows what you're here for. Your husband thinks you'd get well too, wouldn't he? Every preacher should believe the Word with all of his heart. But you're suffering also with a nervous condition. And then you're having pains in your chest. That's right. And I see, go back a little piece, and there was something about a doctor, and it was in the gallbladder. And he warned, said it ought to be operated on, taking gall stones out. That's been at least three or four years ago or more. That's right, three years and nine months. You believe now? Come here.
O blessed Jesus, the righteous Son of God, make well this dear person who stands here waiting, longing for Your healing power. I bless her in Jesus' Name for her healing. Amen. God bless you, lady.
L-60 If thou canst believe... Now, if you just be so kind (See?), just don't move around if you can help. There's somebody was healed back here a few moments ago. I didn't get it, 'cause someone was moving then. You say, "Brother Branham, what about that? You said... I thought you just preached the Bible." That's the Bible.
Jesus when He went into a room where Jairus' daughter was healed, He said, "She's just asleep."
They said, "We know she's dead."
And He put them every one out of the house. He led a man one time out of a crowd and took him out, outside the city to heal him. If thou canst believe...
Just believe right there setting with the lady. I'm not positive. You believe with all your heart? You believe the Lord Jesus sent me here to help you? If you do with all your heart, God will do it for you. I couldn't heal you, you know that. 'Cause I don't have any power to heal. But Jesus Christ is the only One Who has power to heal. You believe that? All right. If God will explain to me what's wrong with you, will you believe it? It's in your side. It's a growth in your right side. That's right. Isn't that right? You believe with all your heart now? You've had a blessing of some sort, haven't you? And that is, that your husband which has been sick, has been healed. That's right. And that was a diabetic case. Isn't that right? That's exactly right. Now, do you believe with all your heart? Come here then.
Heavenly Father, I pray that You'll be merciful to this woman and let Thy Spirit move upon her and give to her the desire of her heart, as I weakly, but humbly, and believingly ask for this blessing, in Jesus' Name. Amen. God bless you, lady. [Mark 9:23], [Luke 8:52-54]
L-61 "If thou canst believe, all things are possible." Have faith, don't doubt.
Was you the lady was just up here? You were--had something wrong in your side, didn't you? So does that lady setting right there beside the man, second lady in there looking at me, right back there, got something wrong with your side, yes, the--the lady right here. Isn't that right with the little round looking hat on of a? That's correct. You're both healed now. Amen.
That was you a few minutes ago, lady. Well, what it was, that same thing here in the line was calling this way and I got--couldn't tell which way it was coming. See?
Oh, isn't He good? He's so wonderful. "If thou canst believe, all things are possible." But depends on whether you believe or not. [Mark 9:23]
L-62 How do you do, lady? You believe with all your heart? Been full of sorrow, haven't you? You're real nervous, broke down. You just lost someone: your husband. That's right. Don't worry; God's with you. He promised to be a--a Sustainer for you. Don't be nervous. He holds everything in His hand, sister dear. He loves you, and He will bless you, I'm sure. Let us pray.
Our kind heavenly Father, I bless this little lady standing here, in the Name of Thy beloved Son, the Lord Jesus. I ask for her healing. Amen. God bless you, lady. Just have faith; don't doubt.
Darkness, God can heal cancers and make them well. Do you believe that? Just a moment, lady. There it is. Blue dress, you believe God heals cancers? Satan thought he'd get by with that, but he missed it. You believe it? Will you accept it, lady? Believe with all your heart? All right, you shall have it, both of you go off and be healed now, in the Name of the Lord Jesus. Have faith in God. If thou canst believe... [Mark 11:22], [Mark 9:23]
L-63 Setting out there on the end of the row, sir, right back there, got a high blood pressure, you believe the Lord Jesus will heal you? You happen to be just in line with that lady then; I thought It left, but It went right back to you. You was setting there praying also, wasn't you? That's right. All right, if you believe with all your heart you can have what you ask for. May the Lord grant it to you. You believe you'd be healed right now by the power of Almighty God?
O God, I lay hands upon the man and ask for his healing. In Jesus Christ's Name may he be healed. Amen.
Howdy do, lady? You believe God make that asthmatic go from you, and you get all right, quit that coughing? You believe it? O dear Jesus, I bless this poor little woman in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for her healing. May it be granted in Jesus' Name. Amen. God bless you, sister. May His blessings be upon you.
God heals cancer, anything, don't make any difference to Him, if you can believe it. Would you believe that He will make you well? O Jesus, Thou Son of the living God, bless this poor little woman who Satan is determined to take her life. I pray that You'll spare her and condemn this enemy, in Jesus Christ's Name. Amen. God bless you, lady. Go, believing.
L-64 The heart is where God dwells. And He can heal where He lives. Don't you believe that? Will you believe He will make you well? O eternal God, send Thy blessings upon this man, who I bless in Christ's Name. May he be healed for the glory of God. Amen. God bless you, brother. Go, believing now with all your heart.
You believe with all your heart out here? Have faith.
God heals rheumatism too. You're setting behind that line praying for your rheumatism. That's right. I'd never caught it if I hadn't seen the Angel go that way. Now, you can have what you ask for, sir. Your faith's made you well.
Glory be to God. What a challenge to the unbeliever to believe and to accept.
You lady, setting right out there, kinda thin with glasses on, got sinus trouble. You believe Jesus Christ make you well? You can have what you ask for. Amen. God bless you.
L-65 Now, the lady next to you. She's got her head down; she's praying for something. It's about her little grandson. That's right. You believe me to be God's prophet? You do? Your little grandson is suffering with a nervous condition, so nervous he can't even go to school. That's right. But if you'll believe with all your heart, you can have what you ask for and will find him different when you see him.
Blessed be the Name of the Lord. Let's pray for these handkerchiefs that's here. [Acts 19:12]
L-66 O Jesus, the Son of God, be merciful unto these who are needy, and heal every one of these that the handkerchiefs represent. Grant it, Lord, in Jesus' Name. And to this woman here, I pray that You'll heal her and make her every whit whole. May she go in the peace of God and be made well.
How many in here believes just now? I know my boy, or one of them's holding my coat, so it must be just about the end that I--I must leave. Now, be real reverent just a moment. If you will solemnly, with all your heart, believe that Jesus Christ, God's Son, the Shepherd of the great flock of God, is here trying His best to wind His way into your heart to take that unbelief out and all that old indifference...
What is sin? What is sin? Unbelief. And if a man or a woman, boy or girl, could set in a meeting like this and walk out disbelieving, I--I believe you're past hope. Why not believe just now? Will you do it? Raise your hands to Him.
Come here, lady. In Christ's Name, heal the woman, Lord, and make her well. [Acts 19:12]
L-67 Heavenly Father, I pray Thee to be merciful to this audience, and let the Holy Spirit... Somehow, God, I don't know how You'll do it, but I'm just asking You to do it: Break that power of darkness; break that power of unbelief. Pour out Your Spirit in this audience, that'll shake every person where they're setting. And may the power of God raise up the sick and the afflicted and make them every whit whole. I commit them unto Thee, great Holy Spirit. I've done all that I know how to do. And I give them to Thee in Jesus' Name.

57-0309e - Madison Square Garden, Phoenix, AZ (Paragraphs: 50 - 71)
L-51 Now, this is the type of line that we used to have when we first come to Phoenix. How many's here tonight, was at my first meeting when I was in Phoenix? Well, my, my, just look. You remember when we come to the prayer line, the people would lay their hands over on mine, and I'd stand there just for a minute and I'd hold their hand just a minute and the Holy Spirit would reveal what was wrong? You remember that?
Remember, I said it would come to pass... the Lord told me the night that He met me, that He would--it would come to pass, if I'd be sincere, that He would take it, till I'd know the very secrets of the heart. I didn't then. But how I said it would come to pass that way if I'd be sincere. How many remember me saying that in my first meeting? See? Has He done it? That's right. See?
L-52 Now, He met me some time ago, several months ago, and there's fixing to be a change in my ministry. It's a change for the better.
There'll be a woman come on the platform one of these days. She'll be wearing a brown coat suit, packing a baby. That'll be it; a little woman with a baby in her arms with a little... I may say it wrong. It's a little skirt in a little... (is that what you call a coat suit, Sis? it's a--a...) two piece suit, two piece suit. I don't know much about ladies clothes. I can't... I don't... never even bought my wife a pair of stockings in my life. She can buy them herself, but I--I made a mistake on that, one time, and you know in my life's story, I was supposed to get one kind and I got another. So I just let them do it from then on, so then...
I was going to buy my little girls one of those a--a little jumper jackets, or what--ever what the ladies wear, you know, the... Oh, I don't know. Like the little lady's got, there's got the--the... setting there with the a--rose on her. What do you call them things? Blouse, that's what it is. I was going to buy my little girl a blouse, and I had my daughter-in-law go do it. I didn't... couldn't do that.
L-53 So have faith now. The Bible said if there be one among you which is spiritual or a prophet, I, the Lord will make Myself known unto him, speak to him in dreams, reveal Myself in visions. And if what he says comes to pass, then hear him, for I'm with him. And if it comes not to pass, then don't hear him, for I haven't spoken to him.
Now, I'm telling you from my heart, those visions that you see here at the platform, that's not me doing that; it's you doing that. You're the one's a doing that. It's your faith anchored; I just submit myself. And as I submit myself to God, then your faith does that very same thing, pulls it like that.
Is there anybody here in the prayer line or outside that never see it operated, let's see your hands... never did see it operate? Just about two or three. Now, I don't know... If the Lord, maybe... I'll try to, maybe, one or two, if the Lord will permit. They get anointing; then I want to pray for this handkerchief. Then, maybe Brother Moore can watch the door, if you will for just a minute, and then let the people come through. [I Corinthians 14:37], [Acts 19:12]
L-54 Now, if--if each one of you coming, if you believe with all your heart and with all your soul, now what does it take? The Bible said, "These signs shall follow them that believe." Is that right? "If they lay their hands on the sick, they shall recover." How many knows that that was the last words that Jesus Christ said on this earth? St. Mark 16: the last words that ever fell from the lips of Jesus Christ said, "If they lay their hands on the sick, they shall recover."
My ministry's never been too effective in America, but oh, how it goes overseas. Brother Moore was telling me this afternoon, he said, "Brother Branham, as hard as you preached this week, if that would be anywhere outside the United States, you'd see a hundred to two hundred thousand souls won to Christ. That's right. Now, you see what a shocking living condition we're in here. Oh, my... It's becoming to a mass Corinthianism. That's right. Just everything, "This is thus and we did... ; we won't have anything to do with this; and this-that." Back off and take the Word. Believe God. [Mark 16:18]
L-55 Poor little America! Feel sorry for them. But the hour is at hand. God can't judge a just people; they've passed from judgment. But He has to get in this fix, so He can send His judgment. You just remember, "We are in for it." Just keep that on your books and see how long it's going to be.
Now, if the mighty works would have been done in Africa that's been done in Arizona, they'd have repented long ago. If the mighty works that's been done in Arizona, had been done in Germany, they'd have had no war; they'd repented long ago.
In Germany I made my altar call five nights and got ten thousand each night, or... and... but fifty thousand souls won to Christ in five nights, and never touched a person. They'd just pile up, and heap up, and everything, of crutches, wheelchairs, just pile them in corners and everything.
L-56 Brother Julius Stadsklev is somewhere in the building, tonight; I seen him awhile ago setting here--Chaplain Stadsklev. He was with me in South Africa or Durban, where many thousands of people to a big race track (And we were only there about three or four days, something like that.), and they were still coming to the meeting a week after I was gone. And a altar call was made of the line to call--we couldn't give out prayer cards. We just let the missionaries go out and take two out of this tribe, and two out of this tribe, and two out of that tribe--just about fifteen tribes there. And they lined up a little prayer line. And the first one coming to the platform was a Mohammedan woman. And that woman when I said, "Why did you come to me as a Christian if you're a Mohammedan?"
The interpreter said, said, "Well, she believed that I could help her."
I said, "Why didn't you go to your priest?" Well, she believed I could help her. I said, "Have you ever read the Bible?"
"And if Jesus will return and do the same things that He did when He was here, and let me know who you are, what's happened, and so forth, and what you're here for, will you believe it and accept Jesus?"
She raised her hand; she would. And the Holy Spirit come down, said, "You went with your husband--he's a low heavy-set man with a black mustache. You went to a... to a..." She was a Indian, "went to the doctor the other day, and he examined you in the female glands and said you had a cyst that should be operated on."
She said, "That's right," and she accepted the Lord Jesus.
That shook the Mohammedans till ten thousand came to Christ at one time.
L-57 And I met a missionary who was saying, "The precious jewel, the precious jewel"; he'd been there thirty years preaching and had won one Mohammedan. Brother, the Mohammedans and Hindus came from the old Medes and Persians; they alter not! That's right.
But the real genuine Lord Jesus in action at one time where... and when I made the altar call that afternoon, which I believe, and Brother Julius, I believe you'd believe the same... way over what was said... but thirty thousand came to Christ at one time--one altar call.
And F. F. Bosworth, and if anybody ever met a saint in this modern day, it's F. F. Bosworth. Yes sir, I'd stand with that if I was dying this minute.
And that old man stood there looking over that ground weeping, and was estimated twenty-five thousand miraculous healings taken place, and never touched a person, just stood there and prayed for them. Seven truck loads of all kinds of sticks and stretchers and things was picked up off the ground, where they walked right away from them. Twenty-five thousand... Think of it! And here you can preach till you snuff your life out, and one say, "Well, pretty good message. Oh, I don't care to go back any more."
Ain't that America for you? Oh, your day has come. I'm not talking to the church. Your day's at hand, too; that's the rapture. Praise be to God.
L-58 Brother Stadsklev, wasn't that a wonderful meeting? Would you just stand up a minute? Here's the author of the book, "A Prophet Visits Africa": Chaplain Julius Stadsklev, a captain in the United States Army, now. He was trained, I believe, at Wheaton or somewhere there, and this same college and so forth that Billy Graham come from. Went right along with me, writing that book, and taking those pictures. He was standing there that night when that--I saw that bus coming in, the first night when I landed there in Africa. And there was that bus moving. And then I saw that boy, one leg six inches shorter than the other. Chaplain Stadsklev was standing right there taking that note when it happened.
When I looked around, I seen a little green car fly sideways and hit into a tree, and broke the back of a young girl. I couldn't find her. Why, she was laying way down under here. And when I arrived, there... "Remember, better be careful, what you tell her..." But I saw a vision of her rejoicing and running. I said, "Stand up on your feet, young lady. Jesus Christ makes you well."
Her mother said, "Oh, no, no! She can't stand. If... The doctor says, if she moves she'd die." Her back was snapping together. And the girl sprang to her feet, rejoicing. And the mother fell on the cot the girl come out of. That's right. Brother Stadsklev has the pictures of it in the book. See? That settled it. Thousands times thousands swarmed to Christ.
L-59 But we try to study it out. I--I'm not talking about the church in America. Looky here tonight. How many in here is saved? Let's see your hands; every Christian in here. See? Sinners are not interested, hardly. They don't want to come. Don't care nothing about it. Just about sinned away the day of grace.
I seen in '33 how cars would look before the coming of the Lord. They're pretty near in that shape. You remember, I prophesied this... You mark it in your books... I've told you many times--every time here. There'll come a time... America is a woman's nation. And a woman will rise up, soon, in America, and become a great person, like a president or somewhere, before the coming of the Lord, I believe. See? Just remember that, that I've said that. And cars will become more like an egg shape, just before the total annihilation or the destruction comes to this nation. Let us pray.
L-60 Now, heavenly Father, here we are. We're on the threshold of a--of a new event. Here's many standing here, sick and afflicted, to come through the line. Behold your servant, Lord. Here's handkerchiefs laying here, packages, letters; they're going to the needy. I bless these handkerchiefs in Christ's Name. And may everyone be healed. Grant it, Lord. I pray that this blessing will be received by everyone, and as American, as a servant of God in this nation, and this, His people, I bless this people in Christ's Name.
Oh God, I pray that You'll bless every minister. And oh, may we get a little vision of lost souls and scream as loud as we can, for the end is at hand. Grant it Lord, I pray, in Christ's Name, Amen. [Acts 19:12]
L-61 I'm going to try something just now. Now, I want you brothers to watch, 'cause when I get under, if the anointing would come, I'd like to pray for all these people as I promised, but I'd like to pray for them, so you could get them moving first, so that the whole group could be prayed for. But I'd like to first feel the touch of...
I can't help it friends, you may think I'm a fanatic, but I know within myself, that I haven't got nothing here. I'm just a man. And I--I want to feel that something and know that anointing is here before I lay hands on these people, though I can't stop with them as they do... can't do it. So I'd just like to feel the anointing for the first three, or four, or five people or something, then you brothers just watch. Would that be satisfactual with all the crowd?
L-62 And how many out there is going to join with me and pray with me now? Up in the balcony? See? All you people look up there. There's at least a thousand people here tonight. I judge, that many, anyhow. I'm a poor judge, but say, there's a thousand people here. There'll be a thousand prayers going for you at once, all the children of God. Look here, what kind of people, every one of you that's born again raise your hand. See what... God's got to hear it. Now, He said, "Where two or three are gathered in My Name, I'll be in their midst." He's here. Now, a little vindication of that, may the Lord God of heaven grant it for the glory of God.
Brother Moore, you stand there and the next two, three, or four passes through, you see I just get a touch of weakness, then you start the line coming. [Matthew 18:20]
L-63 Now lady, you're standing here for something... I don't know. He does. You know I don't know nothing about you, and don't know what you're here for. But what do you... Says, "What do you try to do, Brother Branham?" I'm yielding myself.
Just... Did the Bible say in one place, "Behold the lilies of the field... "? That's in the Bible. What does a lily do? He toils all day and night just to yield himself to the bees, the passer-by, to give out. He was made a lily. God made's honey, so He makes the lily to give out the honey.
He gives gifts in His church. We just yield ourself, we yield. Now, if God will permit me to know what you want to ask God for, just a moment, would you believe with all your heart.
Now, you know that I don't know what you're praying about now. I--I couldn't tell you. But if you'll ask God something, and He will tell me what you want, will you believe. Would the audience believe then? Now, this is for you, children. Now, each one believe it. While you're out there, believe yourself.
Now, it's just a time for the lady. The lady is--wants to be prayed for for a heart condition. It's a dropsy. You believe that He will make you well of it and heal you, give you what...? Aren't you a minister's wife? I thought so. I believe I know your husband. All right. Come here just a moment.
Our blessed heavenly Father, we bless this woman in Christ's Name, that she will receive her healing, for the glory of God. Amen. Now, God bless you, lady.
Now, to you lady, do you believe with all your heart? The Bible said, "If thou canst believe, all things are possible." Your trouble's in your throat. And that's called an ulcer of the throat. And it's got a... it's caused something in the gland, and it's affecting your ears. That's right, isn't it? Now, you believe? Come here.
Oh, blessed Jesus, I pray that You'll heal her in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, Amen. God bless you. [Matthew 6:28], [Mark 9:23]
L-64 How do you do, sir. Do you believe with all your heart? God can take the cataract away. I can't see it, but you've got a cataract. And you're believing God for it. You believe me to be God's prophet? You're not from here. No, sir. Your wife's with you. And she's already accepted her healing. And you're from Ohio. Right? Your name's Weber. That's right. Now, hurry back and get well in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
How do you do. You believe? Young man, I don't know you; I've never seen you, but there's a dark shadow over you. The doctor has condemned you to die; that is, he said you had a tumor in your head. He gives you six months to live. Won't you surrender now, all your habits and everything with it? Will you do it? surrender to Christ? quit smoking and everything else? and give your life to Christ, and...? Will you do it?
I condemn this devil on the basis of the shed Blood of Jesus Christ, that this shall leave this boy and may the report be back from the loosening of Your child. May this young man live and be well in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen. God bless you, young fellow. All right.
L-65 God bless this man and heal him in the Name of Jesus Christ. God bless our brother: heal him in Jesus Christ's Name. Heavenly Father, bless our sister to heal her in Christ's Name. Bless this little boy, Lord, and heal him in Jesus Christ's Name. God bless this man and heal him in Jesus Christ's Name. God bless this young man and heal him in Jesus Christ's Name. God bless this lady and heal her in Jesus Christ's Name. God bless this little lady and heal her in Jesus Christ's Name. God bless this lady to heal her in Jesus Christ's Name. God bless this girl and heal her in Jesus Christ's Name. God bless this man and heal him in Jesus Christ's Name. God bless our brother and heal him in Jesus Christ's Name.
Just a moment. Are you praying, audience? Be in prayer now. There's visions over the audience, even. Oh, my, it's so hard to run this kind of line. Pray for me. You pray for me, too. Keep praying, now. Just keep praying.
L-66 Oh Lord, would You bless this person in Jesus' Name. Lord, bless our sister in Jesus' Name. Lord, bless our sister in Jesus' Name. Lord, bless this woman. Lord, bless this dear woman in Jesus' Name. Lord, bless this dear woman in Jesus' Name. God bless this Indian sister in the Name of Jesus, I pray. God bless this young lady in the Name of Jesus, I pray. God bless this lady in the Name of Jesus, I pray. God bless our sister in Jesus Christ's Name. God bless our brother in Jesus Christ's Name. God bless our sister in Jesus Christ. God bless this fine brother in Jesus' Name. God bless this little boy in Jesus Christ's Name. God bless this lady in Jesus Christ's Name. The Lord bless our brother in Jesus Christ's Name. God bless this lady in Jesus Christ's Name. God bless our sister in Jesus Christ's Name. God bless our brother in Jesus Christ's Name. God bless our sister in Jesus' Name. God bless this brother in Jesus Christ's Name. Grant it, Lord.
L-67 Now, while we're waiting a minute, how many in the audience that's been prayed for, believes, you accept your healing, and you wanted hands laid on you. I want to see if you believe now. Lay your hand... Raise your hands up, you that's come through the prayer line, believes you're being healed. Thank the Lord. That's good. I may be altogether wrong, it may be in America we're supposed to do it this way. I don't know. All right. Have faith, now. Keep praying. All of the audience, keep praying; everybody praying. Just closing my eyes and laying hands on the sick.
God bless our dear...?... brother in Jesus Name. God bless our dear sister in Jesus' Name. God bless my brother in the Name of Jesus. God bless our sister in the Name of the King. God bless the brother in the Name of Jesus Christ. God bless our sister in the Name of Jesus Christ. God bless this child in Jesus' Name. God bless sister Waldrop in Jesus' Name.
L-68 Just a moment while we're standing here. This woman, here, died in the prayer line, when I was here the first time, Mrs. Hattie Waldrop. Her husband is a plumber, been a bosom friend. And the woman had cancer, and she wanted to come anyhow, whether she lived or died. And in the prayer line, somebody told me that someone was dying. And the Lord healed that woman. That's been about ten years ago, Sister Waldrop. [Sister Waldrop says, "Last Monday."--Ed.] And I was... Ten years last Monday. She knows the very day and time, and she...
One night, I believe, I was up in Canada, way up in Saskatchewan, Brother Sothmann, and they called me to pray for her little grandson, I believe it was? [Brother Branham speaks with Sister Waldrop--Ed.] Grand--sister's grandson, what was wrong with it? Brain hemorrhage and polio... in the St. Joseph's hospital and prayed for him on the--by the phone, and the Lord healed that little boy perfectly normal and well. He was in the house, and we eat with our sister over there one night. Wasn't that right, Sister Waldorp? God bless your heart. God bless you sister.
L-69 Let's say, Praise the Lord." Amen. My, my. How wonderful. How great Thou art! How great Thou art! Oh, I wish I could sing that. How great Thou art! Isn't He wonderful. Now, everybody bow your head and pray. All right.
Dear God, I pray for this lovely little child that You will heal her and make her well in Christ's Name, Amen. God bless this, our sister. And by laying on of hands, Thou hast said in Thy Word, "These signs shall follow them that believe. If they lay hands on the sick, they shall recover." This I do, in Jesus' Name.
Likewise, to our sister, I lay my hands in Jesus' Name. Like manner, to our sister, in Jesus' Name, may she be healed. Like manner, to our brother, in Jesus' Name, may he be healed. In like manner to our sister, in Jesus Christ's Name, may she be healed. In Jesus Christ's Name, may our sister be healed. In Jesus Christ's Name, may our brother be healed. In the Name of Jesus Christ, may the baby be healed. Bless our sister and heal her in Jesus' Name. Bless our dear sister and heal her, with hands laid upon her in Jesus' Name, amen.
Now, think friend, if God speaks anything, He tells the truth: These signs shall follow them that believe. Be in prayer now, as you bow your head. Heavenly Father, in Jesus Christ's Name may our brother be healed. Father God, in the Name of Jesus Christ, may our sister be healed. Amen. [Mark 16:17-18]
L-70 That's so much easier than the other way for me. If that's the way you desire it, that's sure my way too. But now look, what have we done? We've laid hands on the sick and prayed for them. Is that right? How many believes, that went through the prayer line, that you're healed, let's see your hand, everyone that went through the prayer line. Praise the Lord. You know, that may be the right way. All right.
Is there any persons in here now that's sick that hasn't been in the prayer line, let's see your hand. All right. Looks like there'd be about a hundred or more. All right. Now, just keep your hands up. Now, I'm going to raise my hands up. What are we doing? We're trying to touch Somebody. Who is it? The One Who stands omnipresent, Who knows us. If you're reaching your hands, I'm reaching my hands. And we're all reaching our hands. Oh, God, be merciful.
L-71 One day, when Moses hands was lifted up, the battle went favorable. And Oh God, today we are lifting our hands, believing that our faith is lifted up to Jesus Christ, Who was lifted up for us. And we believe Your healing power. Oh God, let it rain from the skies like a shower, upon every individual here, and heal them. Grant it, Lord. May it start healing power, power in this building just now.
Everyone that believes that you're healed, clap your hands together. Hallelujah. Then it's over, and we're healed. Then Christ is here. Then God is here. Then the angels are here. Then God gets glory out of it all. Praise be to the Lord God.
All right. Seven more. While we bow our heads just a moment, I'll ask Brother Moore to come and take this service today.
You going to be prayed for son? I pray that you'll bless this man and heal him in Jesus Christ's Name, amen. God bless you. Now, let's bow our heads just a moment. Brother Moore...
