57-0629 - Philadelphia Church, Chicago, IL (Paragraphs: 37 - 54)
L-38 If Christ has risen from the dead... Then Christ didn't claim to be a healer. He claimed that He didn't do nothing till the Father showed Him. Everyone knows that. And He said, "The things that I do shall you also; even more than this, for I go to the Father. Yet a little while, and the world sees Me no more."
Then if you'll be still in your heart tonight, just... I don't mean in your outward, I mean in your heart; settle it, and say, "Oh Christ, I love You. And I'm keeping still about this and that. Whether I shall take this or take that, I'm taking You at Your promise. Please, Christ, tonight, let me see Your Divine power displayed like You did in the days gone by. Then my soul will stand still. My spirit will stand still. My intellectuals will stand still. My learnings will stand still. And I'll see Your Word and accept it."
And Satan shall stand still. Your sickness shall stand still and watch the glory of God bringing you from sickness unto health again. "Stand still and see the glory of God." [John 14:12, 19], [II Chronicles 20:17]
L-39 All right, where's Brother Sothmann and... Just stand still for the next fifteen, twenty minutes. What a challenge. Here we are, here's the display that when Christ must show Hisself alive. If I only teach you a Word, and the Word does not manifest the One Who spoke it, then the Word's no more than any other written words. If this Bible doesn't live tonight in this tabernacle, then it isn't God's promise. Then Buddha has just as much right, and the followers of Buddha. Mohammedan has just as much right, Mohammedan does, as we do, his followers. Sikhs, Jains, whatever they may be, the witch doctor's just as well off.
But there's one thing certain, that Christ is raised from the dead. And if He could only get His Church to stand still just a few minutes, as Caleb stilled the people... Now, be still; watch and see if God still lives. [Numbers 13:30-31]
L-40 Here we are at the Red Sea; we're inexperienced. The Red Sea, when they come there, they was at a place where God had to do something. I preach Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever. Stand still and see the glory of God. It's not your battle to begin with; it's God's battle. It isn't your promise to begin with; it's God's promise. And here I stand tonight; it's not my worry to find out about this woman. It's God's promise to do it. That's right. I just stand still, and the glory of God does the work. I put one of my own words in, it wouldn't be right. I don't put my words in; I just stand still, let God do it. Don't you get worked up, say, "Well, if I had a prayer card..." Stand still. [Hebrews 13:8], [Exodus 14:10-14]
L-41 Now, the lady stands here; she's standing still. I'm standing still. Everything's quiet. Let's see the glory of our God. Believe; have faith; don't doubt. I challenge your faith to that.
Now, if the Lord Jesus is raised from the dead, here stands a woman I've never seen in my life. We're strangers to each other. But there's something wrong with her or something; she wouldn't be standing here. And if Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever, the woman at the well who came to Him, and He claims to be the same, He can display the same mighty power. And if He could display the power here on this woman to reveal to her like He did the woman at the well, He can display the healing just the same as He could the sign.
L-42 The lady's not here for herself. She's here for another woman. That's right, isn't it, lady? That's a much younger woman. It's your daughter-in-law. She's been in a--some kind of a institution or hospital. It's a mental condition, or shock treatments. That's right. And now she has tumor. And you're standing here in her stead. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD.
Now, is that true, raise your hand. You stood still and received His glory. I stood still and seen His glory. And you stood still and seen His glory. Then He's the same Lord Jesus. Go and receive what you've asked for, sister. And may God of heaven give to you the things that you've asked for. Amen.
L-43 How do you do? I suppose we're strangers to each other too. You're standing. Don't be a nervous, worked up, just stand still and know that Christ is raised from the dead. And if Christ has raised from the dead and prove it, then every blessed promise that He made is yours. For you are a believer, correct. And if Christ will tell me what you're here for, will you believe that He's alive here? You believe it is Christ that would tell me, us being strangers to each other? Are we strangers to each other? If it is just raise your hand so.
Yes, frankly, you're kinda up for an operation. You got inward trouble, internal trouble. Been examined for internal trouble. You're also extremely nervous. And you have heart trouble, and the heart is a nervous heart (That's right.), nervous heart. You're not from here. You're from another city west of here, way away, Nebraska, a city called Daulton, something like that, Nebraska. That's right. Return home; Jesus Christ has made you well. Go, and believe now, and don't doubt, and your heart will never bother you. If thou canst believe. [Mark 9:23]
L-44 All right, lady, seems like I've seen you; I might have done it. But I have no idea what's wrong with you, you know that. We're... As far as that is, I've seen you somewhere; I can't place it. But do you realize, that the same God that stilled the Red Sea, is stilling you and I, to see Him displaying His power. Look at the audience there; see how still they are? We're watching to see if Christ raised from the dead. He said, "The works that I do..." "He that believeth on Me (Saint John 14:7), the works that I do shall he do also." That's either right or wrong.
You're not here for yourself. You're here for a--a boy. And that's a son, no, it's a grandson. It's your grandson. And that grandson has gland trouble, it's affected his hearing. That's true. That handkerchief that you had in your hand for me to pray for, take it and lay it on him, he will receive his hearing. Go in the Name of Jesus Christ, and don't doubt. Amen. [John 14:12], [Acts 19:12]
L-45 Are you believing? Have you come to stand still in the Presence of Almighty God and to see His displayed power? If... He would never... He could not give me power to heal you, because He's already done the healing. It's a finished work. But He can give me power to make you realize, if there's anything in you to bring you up to a place to make you realize that He's raised from the dead and standing here. Is that right?
I see the lady with some kind of a--a bandage around her arm. No, it's a taking a blood pressure. High blood pressure, she's suffering with. That is right. And then you have some sort of a bladder trouble. And you've just recently had a operation for that bladder trouble. That's right. And you're standing still in the Presence of Almighty God to be healed. Do you believe it? Will you accept it? Then in Christ's Name, go and receive it, and be made well. Amen. God bless you.
L-46 How do you do? Just a moment. The lady's got a deaf spirit on her. Would you bow your head just a minute till we can get her to hear?
O God, in Jesus Christ's Name, I pray that You give her her hearing. Grant it, Lord. And I condemn the devil that has did this to her. Display Your power, O God, that this woman might hear. And then reveal to her, Lord, when she can hear, that she might know Your glory. I rebuke this devil and cast it out of her, in the Name of Jesus Christ.
How long you been that way? You hear me all right now. You're healed. See, here's your little aid hanging here. That was your best ear, but you can hear out of either one now. See? You hear me? You hear me? You're healed. Now, the Lord bless you. Do you believe me to be His servant? Now, let us talk just a minute now that you can hear. He won't pass you by.
You're suffering with some other trouble, which is... You've... It makes stiff, arthritis. You have arthritis; you are very nervous. And I see you had a accident; you broke your wrist. That's right. And now it's swelling. That's right. In Christ's Name, I rebuke it and ask for her healing. Amen. Now, move your wrist back and forth this way now; go like this. Now, you can go on your road rejoicing, healed, made well.
Let us say, "Praise be to the almighty and living God." Do you believe? "Just be still, and know that I am God," He said. It's not your battle; it's God's battle. [Psalms 46:10]
L-47 You believe God heal that rupture on you, setting there, sir? Hernia? You wanted Him to, didn't you? You was praying for it. If that was right raise up your hand. All right, if you believe it you've received it. And in the... Amen. Have faith in God.
You want to get over that lady's trouble, that female trouble and go be made well? Then believe God and go, make a joyful noise to Him now that you have been stilled, and praise Him.
Do you believe with all your heart? You want God to heal you of that arthritis and make you well? Then go on your road, and rejoice, and say, "Praise be unto God," and make you well.
Heart trouble's easy for God to heal. Do you believe that? Raise up your hands and receive your healing, and go on the road, and be made well, in the Name of Jesus Christ. [Mark 11:22]
L-48 You want to eat again and get that stomach trouble away from you and be made well? Been taking you down, losing weight and everything. I seen you where you look much bigger than you do now, much heavier. It just constantly keeps you, like a belch and everything, in your stomach all the time. Cramps, you can't sleep at night. That... Isn't that right? It's right. Now, you believe? Then go and be healed in the Name of Jesus Christ, God's Son. Just believe.
You believe? Well, you, when your trouble's worse when you lay down; it's your heart, you know, it just keeps fluttering around and making it like that, just a nervous heart. You believe God healed you? Then go and receive the glory of God and be made well.
You believe God take that arthritis away from you? Then go off the platform stomping your feet and praising God. Don't be afraid now; do as you're told to do.
You believe God? "Be still," He said, "and know that I'm God." Oh, He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Don't be all tore to pieces; He's here. [Psalms 46:10], [Hebrews 13:8]
L-49 Got something wrong with your breast, haven't you, lady? Little lady setting there with a pink thing on her, I see the vision. Yes, that's right. You got something wrong with your breast. I don't know you, and you don't know me; but you touched Something there, didn't you? You know you touched Something. That was Christ you touched, the High Priest of our confession.
The lady setting next to you, got stomach trouble, haven't you, lady? You believe Christ will heal you? Let me ask you something, you--you women, you two setting there together. You seem to be friends, or something, or know one another. That's right, you are acquaintances. You believe me to be God's prophet, that God just sent me here, or His servant, rather, sent me here just to declare that He is God, and He loves you and raised from the dead. You believe it?
You've got a son, the lady setting here; you got a son that's at this meeting. And he has a back trouble, and he wants to be healed. That's right, isn't it?
Lady, you there, you got a daughter here at this meeting. And she's got colon trouble and wants to be healed. If that's right, both of you raise up your hand. All right, you're both healed. Now, all four of you in a line, there you are. You can go and be made well.
L-50 Do you believe God's still God? Then He said... It's not your battle; it's His battle. He's the One. It's the enemy that's coming, He said, "But you stand still." Don't be flusterated; we're going to pray a prayer of faith for everyone in here. And every one of you will be healed. Do you believe it? Then quietly lay your hands on each other.
Oh, my brother, don't you get scared; don't be excited. What more can God do? Be still now and know that He's God. Not your battle. They had prayed and he said to the army, "Go down there and just stand still and watch My glory." Why, they was two days packing the spoils away. He put the enemy in such a confusion, such a riot, till they killed each other. Certainly.
And if you'll just be still now and know that God made you the promise, He gave it by His Bible, He confirmed it by His resurrection. He showed it through His Church, He displayed it here tonight. I kept bringing till I got one He could show, it's a deaf woman, to show he can heal the deaf. He will do anything, whether it's blind, deaf, dumb, whatever it is. It's not our battle; it's His battle. He made the promise. Let's believe Him now. Let's pray. [II Chronicles 20:17]
L-51 Dear Jesus, by the fruits of this little message tonight, somehow by Your amazing grace, we have found favor in Your sight, that You've displayed Your great arm of power. You've showed forth signs here that men down through the ages long to see. You showed signs here that John Wesley longed to see. You showed signs that Calvin longed to see. Sankey, Moody, Finney, Knox, all of them longed to see.
But the evening lights has come; the denominational barriers are standing still, and the evening lights is shining. And we're happy to know that we're living in the radiant healing power of the great Son of God Who spread forth His wings over this western horizon to show that He's the same that He was in the eastern countries in the beginning of breaking of day. This audience tonight is standing still.
I'm praying to You the best that I know how the prayer of faith. Many here has received You as their Saviour. They have took You as their Healer. Now, God, as they're waiting in this blessed moment, may the Holy Spirit come from heaven, may He charge every heart in here, and may it just not be as times gone by, may it be different. May they rise and see the devil defeated and every cloud of darkness broken away, and standing out yonder standing still, to watch the afflicted walk and the blind to see and the deaf to hear.
Satan, stand still and see the power of the living God. We adjure thee to stand off of these people. Let God display His power, in Jesus Christ's Name.
L-52 I challenge every man, crippled, or whatever you are, every person that's got a crippled arm, deaf, dumb, or blind, to stand to your feet at this moment. If your sick with cancer, rheumatism, whatever it is, Satan will have to stand still and watch you rise from that chair and give God praise. Stand to your feet now and give God praise. Watch the devil stand on the sideline. Rise up, in the Name of Jesus Christ, and see the glory of God. There you are, the whole audience to their feet. Let us give Him praise now as the great Jehovah and living God.
Blessed be the Name of the Lord. A little woman that couldn't get up just a few moments ago, her friend put her hand on her, and up she jumped, standing right here. "Stand still, and see the power of God."
L-53 I will praise Him; I will praise Him; praise the Lamb for sinners slain; give Him glory all ye people, for His Blood can wash away each stain.
Let us raise our voices, our hands, our hearts, our faith, our emotions, to God, and sing it to the top of our voice, "I Will Praise Him." All right now.
I will praise Him, I will praise Him,
Praise the Lamb for sinners slain;
Give Him glory, all ye people,
For His blood has washed away each stain.
Once again, come on, everybody now.
I will praise Him, I will praise Him,
Praise the Lamb for sinner slain;
Give Him glory, all ye people,
For His blood has washed away each stain.
L-54 May I say it like this: Give Him glory, all ye people, for His Blood has washed away each doubt. Amen. All the doubts are buried in the sea. Do you believe it? Do you accept it? Raise your hands to God. "And I now accept it. All doubts are buried in the fountain. I believe Him." The Lord bless you, my dear people. Be at Sunday school somewhere in the morning; be sure to attend this convention. Tomorrow afternoon, the Lord willing, I'll be speaking here on "Eternal Life." Until I see you tomorrow, Brother Boze to the platform.

57-0728 - Memorial Field House, Tacoma, WA (Paragraphs: 77 - 108)
L-78 Now, I want... Now, please don't move around. See? If you do, here's what it is. In Jesus' Name I take every soul in here under my control for the glory of God. Now, set still. You're spirits; when you move it interrupts. You say, "Brother Branham, is that true?" Why did Jesus ask them to do it? Why'd he take everybody out of the house so Jairus' daughter could be healed? Now, be real reverent. [Luke 8:51]
L-79 Now, lady, as far as I know I've never seen you in my life. You've never seen me in your life. Is that right? Raise up your hand, never seen you in my life and you've never seen... I've never seen you and you never seen me. Therefore, we're perfect strangers, both of us with our arms up to God that we've never met one another before in life, know nothing of each other.
Now, there may be something wrong with the woman. She may be a critic. She may be sick. She may be for somebody else. It may be financial trouble, may be domestic troubles. I don't know. God knows I don't know.
L-80 But if this isn't a same kind of a picture of Saint John the 4th chapter. I've never seen it. Here's a man and a woman like met then. Now, our Lord was setting on the well, waiting. He sent His disciples away, and a woman come up to draw water. And He said, "Bring me a drink." Now, she was a Samaritan. Not a Jew, a Samaritan. That's half Jew and Gentile.
So for... She said, "It's not customary for you Jews to ask Samaritans such."
Now, watch Him. He's talking to her. He said, "But if you knew Who you were talking to, you'd ask Me for a drink. I'd give you water you don't come here to draw." They carried a lengthy conversation. What was Jesus doing? He was contacting her spirit. You remember the Father had told Him He had need to go by to Samerico, with the--Samaria, He was on His road down to Jericho. That's straight from Jerusalem right down the mountain. But He went up around the mountain to Samaria, because God had sent Him up there. [John 4:4, 7-10]
L-81 Now, God sent me here to Tacoma. And here's a woman that's come before me in the prayer line. All I know, God sent me here. I don't know her. She doesn't know me. So now, if Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever, and I be found truthful, telling the truth, now, maybe God will work that. I don't know He will. He may do it. If He does do it, and you go away from here a believer, God cleaned your sinful soul. [Hebrews 13:8]
L-82 Now, I just want to talk to you. You just answer. For it's the same thing that Jesus done to the woman. After He talked to her awhile He said, "Go, get your husband." That was her trouble wasn't it?
She said, "I don't have any husband."
Said, "You've got five."
Now, she didn't say, "He's reading my mind. It's telepathy." She said, "Sir, I perceive that You're a prophet." See how she feared that gift? That's the reason she got something.
That's the reason Mary got something and Martha, when she said, "My... If You'd have been here, my brother would not have died. But even now, if You ask God, God will give it to You."
He said, "I'm the Resurrection and Life. He that heareth My words has... He that heareth My words has Everlasting Life." He said, "I'm the Resurrection and Life," the way He said it. "He that was dead yet--yet shall he live. And whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die." Said, "Believeth thou this?"
She said, "Yes, Lord. I believe that You're the Son of God, that was sent into the world." See her--her reverence to approach that gift of God?
He said, "Thy brother shall rise again." There you are. It's your approach. [John 4:16-19], [John 11:21-22], [John 5:24]
L-83 Now, that man that put a rag around His face, hit Him on the head with a stick, that Roman soldier, and said, "Now, if you're a prophesier, tell us who hit You, and we'll believe You." He never said a word. God don't clown for people. He certainly doesn't. He uses His power to magnify Himself and to glorify Himself. He's God in silence. [Luke 22:64]
L-84 I'm talking to you. If God will reveal to me, knowing that we're a man and woman here in this great audience of people of several thousand tonight, watching this drama, and both of us under oath before God that we know not each other...
Now, if God will reveal to me what you're here for (I don't know what it is.), but what your here for, will you receive it? Now, if I say, "Oh, you're sick and going to get well," you have a right to doubt that. But if He will reveal it... Now, if you was crippled and I said, "Well, you're crippled." If I said, "It's your eyes," it may be your eyes. But that wouldn't be no miracle. May... Anybody can see you wearing glasses; your eyes are bad. But may be something that I know nothing about. Then it's sure to be God. I trust that He will do it.
L-85 Now, if the audience can still hear my voice, the woman seems to be getting smaller. There's like a shadow; between her and I stands a Light. The woman's suffering. Yes, sir, she's very sick. She has many things wrong with her. The woman has something wrong in her bowels. It's colitis. I believe the doctor diagnoses that as colitis: kind of a thin fellow, the doctor. He said it's colitis. And then I see something about looking at the bottom of the feet. You got fallen arches too that bothers you. That's true. Then you've got some sort of a bleeding, hemorrhage in your blood. That's the truth. And I see you drop a dish, going from a room. You're real nervous, upset. And you have real gloomy spells kind of late in the evening when the sun's a going down and getting kind of a melancholy feeling, kind a strange feeling. I see you setting on the chair, looking out, watching the sun through the window. You have a real funny feeling. That's true. I'm not reading your mind.
L-86 And here's another thing. I hear you in a room praying. It's beside of a bed. And you're asking God to give you the baptism of the Holy Ghost. You're seeking for God. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD. Is that true of false? Is every bit of it true? You believe God now? Would you say that to the audience? You see that? And God in heaven knows I know nothing about the woman. What is it? It's Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever.
And I want to say this to you, my sister; the dark shadow that hung over you when you come here has gone from you. You're healed. Go on your road, rejoicing and thank God. Amen. Go this a way. [Hebrews 13:8]
L-87 I believe you are the second person to be here tonight. Are we strangers to each other? We do not know each other? Never saw me or met me or I met you in life, is that right? I don't say that He will tell me anything. I don't know. But if He does, would you accept it as being... You know it has to come from a supernatural resource. Will you accept it to be God? If you believe it to be God, you will benefit by it. If you do not, well then, to my opinion, it's sin. The Bible said, "Go ye and sin no more." If sin is unbelief, "Go ye and disbelieve no more or a worse thing come upon you." [John 5:14]
L-88 Now, a strong thing struck the platform then. Stop that. See? Now, we're not in this dimension of... If you scientists here, this is not the three dimensions we live in. It's another dimension which is closer to God. See? Just go down. You believe that God will give you the desire of your heart? All right. You seen Him heal your boy. You seen Him heal others. You believe that He will heal? All right. Now, you look this a way then. Just to contact your spirit, and believing that God will do it. Humbly I ask Him to do it.
L-89 If the audience can still hear me, I see the lady is in a serious condition. The first thing, she's extremely nervous. That's caused by the time of her life, her age. She has nervous spells. And again, she's suffering with a lady's trouble, a female trouble. And that female trouble is diagnosed as a tumor. It's a tumor says the doctor. And you're up for an operation, should be operated on. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD. That true? Do you believe it? Everyone? Now, let us pray, sister. All of you together while we bow are heads.
Blessed Lord, I pray that You will help our sister, and will heal her body, and let her know this: That the Christ of God Who spoke to the woman at the well as a poor, humble, unworthy people here anointed tonight, that it could manifest His power and His glory. May every doubt fade from her, and may she be healed by the grace of God. In the Name of Jesus, I ask it. Amen. God bless you, my sister.
L-90 How do you do? Lady, you setting up there in the balcony with the blue dress on, got high blood pressure, haven't you, setting right up there? You believe God... The lady right here, heavy set with the gray hair, struggling with high blood pressure, was just praying for her healing. The lady right here in front of me, in the second row; that's right. God has healed you and rewarded you of your faith. Go home and get well now. Amen.
What did the woman touch? Who did she touch? She's thirty or forty yards from me.
Lady, up there in the balcony that was just healed. I do not know you. Is that right? You don't know me. That's right? But you were just praying for God to touch you. And He did it. He rewarded you of your faith.
You without prayer cards, now, just like her. You go to praying and believing that God will heal you. That's the same Jesus. He's forever the same Lord Jesus. He said, "If thou canst believe, all things are possible." [Mark 9:23]
L-91 Now, young lady, standing here before me, are you aware that you're in the Presence of something? Because I'm looking at the girl, and that Light that's on the picture is settled around this girl right now. If you're aware that something real sweet and loving, kind feeling on you, raise up your hand to the audience. You know that your brother standing here could not produce that. The reason I said brother, because that you are a believer, a Christian.
You look like a healthy woman. I do not know you. I've never seen you in my life. If that's right, raise your hand towards the audience. But if God of heaven will reveal to me... Just keep your eyes closed so the people can see it's not mental telepathy. If God will reveal to me what your trouble is, will you accept Christ and believe that it's Him here speaking? Will you do that? Raise your hand like that.
L-92 Now, the lady is not standing here for herself. She's standing here for someone else. And that woman is a relative to her. It's your aunt. And she doesn't live in this country. She's more of a plains country. It's North Dakota where she's from. And she suffers with a real extreme nervous condition, and she's having spiritual problems, and she's got ulcers. That's the truth. And not only that, but there's a pressure pulling from this meeting, which is another woman. And the woman is with you, and it's your sister. And she... You're praying for her right now for her back trouble to be healed. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD. That's the truth, isn't it? If it is, raise both your hands up. Go and receive it, and send that handkerchief with the tear on it to your loved one. And be healed in Christ Name. [Acts 19:12]
L-93 "If thou canst believe..." Now, don't move around. I'm just expecting something to happen. I just believe it will. I prayed all day for a great break forth tonight.
You suffer with a nervous trouble, don't you, lady setting right there? God just healed you of it.
The man, second seat behind you back there, has high blood pressure, setting right back up here straight in front of me. You believe Jesus Christ make you well, sir? If you will believe it... Yes, sir, you are healed. Jesus Christ makes you well. Amen. [Mark 9:23]
L-94 You're suffering with a growth in your body, lady. That's right. And if God will reveal to me where that growth is, though it's hid from my eyes, will you believe me to be God's prophet? Now, more you talk to the lady. We are both anointed right now. You're aware of that, lady. The growth is on your breast. It's on your right breast. And I see you coming from some other city. You're not from this city. You're from a city north of here. And it's a city that's got lots of hills: Seattle. That's right. Return to Seattle, believe God, and the growth will leave you. THUS SAITH THE LORD. Amen. Have faith in God. Don't doubt. Believe. [Mark 11:22]
L-95 I do not know you, lady. We are strangers to each other. But if God will reveal to me what your trouble is, will you believe me as His servant? Thank you, ma'am. I'm so happy for that. Now, that gallbladder trouble, and you have an infection, and your up for an operation. You believe that it'll leave you now? Then let us pray.
Heavenly Father, in the Name of Thy Son, the Lord Jesus, I pray that You heal this woman. Take away her affliction. This great church of God asked it in Jesus' Name. Amen. Go, believing now it'll go from you.
L-96 You believe God will heal you of that sinus, make you well? If you believe, you can have it.
What about setting next to you with the gallbladder trouble, heart trouble too? You believe God would heal you of the gallbladder and heart trouble? If thou canst believe, all things are possible. [Mark 9:23]
L-97 What do you think about it, brother? You believe with all your heart? Are we strangers to each other? You was healed in my meeting once before. Is that down here at Tacoma? It was. That's been about ten years ago, nine or ten years ago. Therefore I wouldn't know, that night standing... I wouldn't know you if I met you tomorrow, as you're standing here. He was healed outside the line without any prayer, just healed from the meeting. 'Course I'd know nothing about you then or nothing of you.
Now, if God will reveal what this little man is here for, how many in the audience will say, "I will take Christ as my Healer right now"? If I--I and this man will raise our hands that we know not each other, never met, as far as I know, before in this life... Then you believe. Now, let the man be the judge. If God will grant it. I don't know. We will ask Him and see. May God grant it, my brother, and reveal what your trouble is, so that the audience... I believe they raised their hands sincerely.
You are suffering with some sort of a poisoning, kind of like a kidney poisoning like. That's right. And that's 'cause you only have one kidney. And you got a prostate trouble, which causes you to get up at night. And I see you as a young man on being operated. It's as least forty of fifty years ago, that kidney was removed, forty-four years ago. That's correct, is it? Christ healed you. Go on your road rejoicing and be happy in Jesus' Name. God bless you.
L-98 I'm getting tremendous weak now. What is it? It's the audience. I'm trying to catch the audience. I just can't do it. Everybody's just believing. It's just pulling from place to place. But just keep on. That's all right. Just keep believing. More you talk to the people, more you know, more's revealed. But the reason I keep passing one to another, so that there be more than two or three witnesses to confirm it. [II Corinthians 13:1]
L-99 The little lady standing here, we are strangers to each other? We do not know each other at all? First time we've ever met in life? All right. There--there's something in your mind or heart that you're here for. I don't know. But if God will reveal to me what you're here for, will you accept it as being Christ trying to get to you to heal you? You will? Will the audience promise they'll do the same, every suffering woman in this audience, will you promise the same? May the God of heaven grant it, lady. While we we're both waving our hands before God, we know not each other.
You are suffering with kind of a gallbladder trouble, a lady's trouble. That's true. And I seen something move. I heard something speak in the Spirit; just a moment. Yes, you know I don't know you, but if God will tell me what your name is, will you believe me? You're Mrs. Charles White. If that's right, raise your hand. Go on your road rejoicing. You're healed, sister. God makes you well.
L-100 Now, that you might think telepathy... I know it's coming from the audience from somewhere, but I can't find it. If I would, I'd call you out. That's right.
Lady, lay your hand on mine, patient. If God will reveal to me, looking this a way what's wrong with you, will you accept it? Raise your hand. Then you can leave the platform; your heart trouble is finished. You go on rejoicing.
Now, lady, you just touch my hand back this a way. If God will reveal to me this a way, what's wrong with you, will you accept your healing? If you will, take your hand off of mine. All right. I see you trying to get out, maybe on the side of a street stepping sideways: arthritis. That's right. Go on your road rejoicing and believing God.
L-101 You was healed of heart trouble while you were setting in the chair. Just go on your road rejoicing and thanking God.
Now, just touch my hand. So I can keep from the contact of the people, just a way of contact. If God will reveal to me looking this a way, or up this a way, what's wrong with you, will you accept it? And you'll know whether it's the truth or not. If you will take your hand out to mine. Will the audience believe it? If you'll raise your hand to God. Now, Father, it's up to you.
I see the woman belching. It's--It's a stomach trouble, acids from the stomach. That's exactly right. Now, if you will believe it with all your heart, you can go off the platform and be made well. Go rejoicing and happy. All right, come.
L-102 Brother, as you come, 'course you can see the shadow. Do you realize what's wrong with you? You believe that Christ can change that death to life and make it--make you live? Do you? Cancer's no more to Him than a toothache. But if you'll believe, the thing will leave you. Will you believe it? Come here. Let us pray. I want to ask you something. There's something here that knows you and I don't. But whatever it is, do you believe it's Christ? Then if it is, it's got me anointed.
L-103 Jesus said, "These signs shall follow them that believe." Do you believe I'm a believer? "If they lay their hands on the sick, they shall recover." Did Christ say that? The same Christ that said it has been living since two thousand years ago He said, and is here tonight vindicating it's the truth. Then you have to get well, don't you?
O, God, have mercy upon the man. And in the Name of Thy beloved Son, Jesus, we challenge this devil to a duel. We believe that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is in our midst tonight doing these things. And people, many across the world are failing to see it because it's only out of intellectual conception of Him. But those who are borned of the Spirit, knows that our spirit bares record with His Spirit, that we're sons and daughters of God. And in the light of Calvary, I challenge the enemy of this man's life. And in the face of his faith, I say for this demon to leave his body. In Jesus Christ Name. Amen. Go rejoicing, brother, and be happy. [Mark 16:17-18]
L-104 You think that back trouble left you while you were setting there? If you do, go on. Amen. Go... Yes, just believe it with all your heart.
What if I told you the Lord Jesus saved your while setting there? Would you take my word for it? Go on your road and be happy then. You got it. Amen.
Are you an Indian? I thought so. Now, between you and I, there's something dropping. It's blood, which means you're a diabetic. Insulin is a mighty good thing. Insulin is a remedy, but Christ is a cure. Will you believe Him tonight? Let's you and I go to Calvary for a blood transfusion then.
L-105 Jehovah God, be merciful to this dear woman. And may the sugar in this blood be taken out by the mighty healing power of Jesus Christ, Who created the blood cell. And we pray that You'll grant it. And when the physician examines that urine test again, may he be surprised and say, "Lady, something's happened. You're healed." Then she'll come and give praise and glory to Thee. I lay my unworthy hands upon her in the Name of Jesus Christ for her healing. Amen.
God bless you, sister. Yes, and I was going to say; don't fear about that boy; he will come out.
L-106 Are you believing? Is Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever? Then if you believe me as His servant, I'm going to ask you to do something. Brother Sothmann or Billy, or some of them is patting me on the side. Something's happened; that is where I've gotten so weak that they're going to take me from the platform. It's the time that I am supposed to go.
I want to say to you this, that if I never see you again in this world, I've told the truth about Jesus Christ. He's vindicated the same. And I say this in His Name, that every sick person in here, if you're a sinner, if you'll confess your sins, if you'll--that is, an unbeliever, confess your unbelief, and believe God right now, there will not be a feeble person in our midst. Be assured, if everything else I've done has been perfectly vindicated by God, surely my word's vindicated by God. I've told you what He said. He turned right back around and testified that what I said is the truth. [Hebrews 13:8]
L-107 Now, I want you to lay your hands on one another. There's sick people all over the building. That's right. I believe you're fixing to see something that you've never seen before. I believe that you're going to see one of the greatest burst of healings that you've ever seen. I feel that in the light of God's Word and the witness of the Holy Ghost, we have the victory here tonight over the devil...?... I believe that His precious Blood is dripping to every soul. His Holy Spirit is moving up-and-down these aisles and ministering to people.
Satan, you've lost the battle. Come out of this audience, out of this people. I adjure thee by Jesus Christ the Son of God. Come out and leave this audience. And may the people, every one be healed, in Jesus Christ's Name.
L-108 All that believe that you're healed by the power of God, I trust that you won't believe me to be a hypocrite. This entire audience just looks like one great big milky ball to me, out there now. It's your faith. Act on it. If you believe it, stand to your feet and accept Jesus as your Healer right now, regardless of what's wrong with you. Blessed be the Lord. Let's raise our hands and give Him praise, every one of us.
O God! We thank Thee, Lord. Satan has lost the battle. Jesus Christ is the winner, and we have won the victory...

57-0804a - Edmonton Arena, Edmonton, AB (Paragraphs: 61 - 80)
L-62 And the missionary told him... And 'course in reading to him the Bible, what Jesus did, those days were past. So he come to find out, that's the weakness of our missionary.
And so he carried the idol. And he said, "A idol had power." He said, "His father packed the idol. And one day a lion got after his father, and he set the little idol down and built up a little fire, and said a prayer the witch doctor told him, and the lion run away." I told him that I was a hunter, and I hunted lions. And the prayer never run the lion away. The fire run the lion away, 'cause an animal's afraid of fire. Oh, well, he'd pack it anyhow. Now, do you call that conversion? No.
L-63 And after the meeting that day, there was no way of giving out prayer cards. Billy, my boy, went down and give out prayer cards. He come home and showed me, he had no neck tie, no pockets, or nothing. So he said, "Daddy, it would be easier to go into a lions' den. For those people grabbing for those cards, they tore my clothes off." Said, "I had to get away." So I said... We could not give out prayer cards, so I said, "I want some missionaries of each tribe and each people here to go out and bring two people out of each tribe."
So I spoke to them the Bible of Jesus being the resurrected Christ. There set Mohammedans, thousands. And they're the hardest to change; they're from the old Medo Persians, who alter not or change not.
L-64 So when they brought them to the platform, the first one to my memory was a Mohammedan woman, the red dot between her eyes, a middle-aged woman. And I said, "You are a Mohammedan."
She said, "Yes." Through her interpreter.
And I said, "Well, why do you come to me as a Christian to help you? Why don't you go to your priest?" She said she believed that--that I could help her. I said, "I can't help you. But if you believe Jesus Christ, He will help you." She finally caught onto it. And I said, "If the Lord Jesus has raised from the dead and will do the same thing here that He did when He was here on earth, will you believe Him?" Yes, she would. "Will you accept Him as your Saviour?" She put up her hand, she would.
And the Holy Spirit came down and told her who she was, what she had done, where she had been, and she started weeping and accepted Christ as personal Saviour.
L-65 The next was a little black boy out of the Zulu tribe. The Zulus are great, strong people. This little boy had just eaten his dinner. Maybe some of you little children would like me to tell you what he has for dinner. All right, they take a porcupine quill and pick the throat, jugular vein of a cow. And they let water or the blood run into what they call a--a cup. It's a--it's a little sack of leather.
And then when it gets about half full, they'd pinch the vein and then milk some milk down in there, and take a stick and churn it. Oh, it makes a delicious lolly-pop. Aren't you glad you live in Canada? All right. But that's...
L-66 And his little belly was just as bloody as it could be from the--the blood of the--of the animal that had went over his little stomach. And he was so cross-eyed, the little fellow had to hold his head sideways to see. And when he'd turn his little head, I said, "Now, anyone can see the little one cross-eyed. Now, if I could help the little boy and wouldn't do it, I'd be a hypocrite." But I said, "I can't help him. But if the Holy Spirit, Who knows the child, will reveal what's caused this, then what will you believe?" That was... The Mohammedan was first; this was the native. And the Zulus was setting up there by the thousands.
And the Holy Spirit said this: "The little baby has been borned among Christian people. And it's father and mother is tall and thin." Which is very contrary to Zulus. They're heavy. []
L-67 And I said, "For in the hut where the little baby was born, I see a picture of Christ hanging on the wall." And the father and mother about a hundred and fifty yards away raised up, that that was true. And there was the people, just the description. I said of course, "I couldn't heal him, but I could pray." And when I looked back, the little black fellow was just a laughing, and his little eyes was just as straight as mine.
A doctor at the platform run forward and wanted to question me. Mr. Baxter and Mr. Bosworth was getting him from the platform. And the... So I understood that there was fuss. He said, "I want to speak to the man just a moment. What happened to that baby?" Nothing of course that I did.
L-68 So finally, I turned around, I said, "What do you want, doctor?" He wanted to know how I knowed he was doctor. So he said, "I want to ask you, Mr. Branham, what did you do to that baby?"
I said, "Nothing. I wasn't in twenty feet of him."
He said, "Mr. Branham, did you hypnotize that child?"
I said, "Do you mean to tell me that they've give you license to practice medicine and know no more about hypnotism than that?" If hypnotism will straighten a child's eyes, you'd better start practicing hypnotism."
He said, "I put the child on the platform. I stood here and looked at him; something happened."
I said, "Jesus Christ healed him."
He said, "Mr. Branham..."
L-69 And the great lilies... You Canadian people... My wife was just remarking what pretty flower garden, and how your pretty flowers... But oh, you should go to Africa. Some of those calla lilies, both yellow and white, measure eighteen inches across. The prettiest things you ever seen grow wild, right out in the jungle. And they had great big bouquets of those setting on the platform.
L-70 This little fellow said, "Mr. Branham, I know that there is a life in that lily. And it cannot live unless that life was in it and I believe that life is God." He said, "but is He tangible enough to make a cross-eyed boy receive his sight normal?"
I said, "You just have to take my word for it. There's... The boy was cross-eyed five minutes ago. Here you've got him in your hand, and he can see. Jesus Christ Who is omnipresent is here, and has give the boy his sight."
L-71 And they started take him from the platform, he run to. Said, "Then I accept Jesus Christ as my personal Saviour." And when leaving at Johannesburg a few days later, this doctor run out on the ramp where thousands of people had gathered to say good-bye, and he run out on the ramp and grabbed me around the waist and begin crying and said, "I'm called to the mission fields to be a medical missionary." And begin to speaking with unknown tongues out on that ramp.
And I said, "Wonderful." Now, I don't... I can go into that a little later about that. However, that day when the Lord Jesus challenged, and a great mighty miracle taken place on the platform, to a boy that was there, mental deficiency, crippled up. And the Holy Spirit said, "Now, his brother, he's thinking of him, and he's here in the crowd somewhere; he was hurt, either riding a dog or a goat, it was yellow. And he fell and hurt his knee, and he's crippled, walks on crutches. But THUS SAITH THE LORD, the boy's healed."
L-72 Way down maybe two city blocks, I heard a scream, and here come the boy with the clubs over his head, perfectly normal and well. Then when I looked, I saw a shadow; it was a vision that the man was going to be healed. And I said, "How many in this audience will receive Christ as personal Saviour if this young man is healed, everywhere of all the tribes?" And I prayed and asked our dear blessed Lord. And that man raised to his feet, perfectly normal and well, even mentally well.
And as the tears run down his cheeks upon his black body, I had the privilege of seeing thirty thousand raw heathens come to Jesus Christ at one time. Thirty thousand would be ten times bigger than Pentecost. "The things that I do shall you also. Greater than this shall you do for I go unto My Father." [John 14:12]
L-73 I say unto you this afternoon, my dear beloved, believer and fellow citizen of the Kingdom of God, the great commission is just as much in force today, as it was the days when it fell from the lips of Jesus Christ.
If He doesn't do the same thing in this meeting that He did in the days gone by, then I'm a false prophet. But If He does, and you fail to receive Him, you are a sinner. The word "sinner," means "unbeliever." "Go ye and disbelieve no more or worse things will come upon you." There's only one crossing line between a sinner and a saint; that's faith. "He that believeth not, is condemned already," said Jesus Christ. [John 5:14], [John 3:18]
L-74 So the great commission, what's made our places in the condition it's in today, is because we have not carried out the great commission of the resurrected Jesus, of His power and His love to His church.
Now, I have nothing against any church or any denomination, for I call a Lutheran, Presbyterian, Anglo-Sax--ever what he is, Pentecostal... I don't belong to any church. I am not Pentecostal. I am not Presbyterian, yet I am a Nazarene, Pilgrim Holiness, Pentecostal Baptist. I belong to all of them. I am your brother, and I'm here to be of service and a blessing to you, and I know that you'll be of service and a blessing to me. May God see to this, that the meeting will have a great unction, that'll make every church through the provinces prosper by this meeting and God get glory. Shall we bow our heads just a moment.
L-75 Blessed, heavenly Father, in Thy Presence we feeled our need. As we read the sacred writings of this Book, and we feeled our great need of a living Christ in the day of skeptics. And Thou hast foreseen this and knowed it, for You said the day would come when they'd be heady, high-minded, love pleasure more than God and have a form of godliness, but would deny the power thereof.
Thou has also said, "I will not leave you comfortless. I'll pray the Father, and He will send you another Comforter, which is the Holy Spirit. A little while and the world will see Me no more, yet ye shall Me for I (personal pronoun), I'll be with you, even in you to the end of the age." [II Timothy 3:4-5], [John 14:18-19], [Matthew 28:20]
L-76 We most humbly accept that and believe it to be a real truth of God. And Lord, seeing that the day is far spent and the evening lights are shining... O Lord, let us now hasten quickly; let us redeem the time; let us be up and doing to make every effort that we can to see that every soul is saved, that's been ordained of God to be saved.
As we stand here feeling as fisherman, as Thou hast said, "The Kingdom of God is likened unto a man that took a net and went to the sea, cast it in and drew all kinds."... As we want to fish on this corner, when we throw the Gospel net, may it catch every fish, Lord, for the Kingdom. Grant it, Lord. Let us have favor in Thy sight. And we know we will receive it, because Jesus has told us, "Ask the Father anything in My Name, I'll do it." And we believe it and wait for Your blessings as humble children. We ask in Jesus' Name. Amen. [Matthew 13:47], [John 16:23]
L-77 Do you have a word or shall I dismiss the audience? You know, there's a lovely old song. If the pianist will come just a moment or maybe if not, we could just sing it without the music. Sometimes, I like to sing without the... I can't sing, but I love to try it. The Bible said, "Make a joyful noise unto the Lord." And maybe that's all I do, but I get a lot of joy out of doing it. [Psalms 98:6]
L-78 I would like to introduce Brother Robert Thoms at this time. Many of you might want to shake his hand from South Africa. Would you stand up, Brother Thoms, from all the way from South Africa to be with us in the meeting? The Lord bless you, my brother. Doctor Lee Vayle is setting by him there. One of my co-workers and friends, Doctor Lee Vayle, would you stand up; he's the pastor of the First Baptist church in Lima, Ohio, where the Baptists and so forth give us a great auditorium, and we had a great meeting where many great signs and wonders were done.
Glad to see you, brethren. And sorry I don't know the gentleman between you there, but it must be some friend. Is it Brother Wilson, is it? All right, Brother Wilson, I guess you're well known here, and the Lord bless you, Brother Wilson. All right.
L-79 Now, until we meet now at six o'clock, either Billy or this boy here... My little boy has growed up since I was here before. And I got another little boy, Joseph. Many of you remember me prophesying that little Joseph would come. Years past 'fore he come.
And one of the sweetest little things happened a few nights ago. I was at the Christian Businessmen's convention in Chicago and Brother Thoms had just come over on a ship. And the people of Africa had made him a coat of many colors, and Brother Thoms had brought it. I'm sending his picture back. And Brother Thoms, I find out that that little coat has five different colors, and five is the number of redemption: J-E-S-U-S, F-A-I-T-H, and so forth. Well, that's very fine.
L-80 Until we meet now, let us try to sing this song, one verse. How many knows, "Take the Name of Jesus With You."? Oh, that's wonderful. Shall we stand now just for a moment. Now, I've got myself in trouble. How am I going to start it?
Name of Jesus with you,
Child of sorrow and of woe;
It will joy and comfort give you,
Take it everywhere you go.
Precious name, O how sweet!
Hope of earth and joy of Heaven.
Precious name, O how sweet!
Hope of earth and joy...
