59-0920 - Branham Tabernacle, Jeffersonville IN (Paragraphs: 57 - 71)
L-58 Now, if you are sick, and that--that--that I don't know. But if you are sick, I could not heal you, because He's already did that. But it might be that if His Presence here would make you understand perfectly that He's here, then that would raise your faith to accept it. See? And that's the way It would do with the audience. What It would do for this woman, would do for each and every one of you. Now, just believe that, 'cause He was wounded for our transgressions, with His stripes we was healed. We were, way long time ago, two thousand years ago, salvation and healing came then.
Now, you say, "What's you talking for, Brother Branham?" I'm seeing what the Holy Spirit will say. I don't know her. And the hardest place I ever had to have a meeting is right here, 'cause that's what Christ said, "A prophet in his own country, among his own people..." See? It's... He went into His own and many things He could not do. He walked away. Now, it's not because this little group here; that isn't it. My church, they love me and believe me. But it's the outside element and the Word of God says so-that says so. But I--I am stalling just a moment to see if the Spirit of God will anoint me to find out...
Now, she's a spirit, and she's flesh. Someday the spirit will leave, and then the flesh will decay. The spirit goes to the God Who give it.
Here's a spirit too, standing here, but it's represented a body of flesh. Now, if these spirits are hooked into that Vine, it'll bring forth the...
L-59 What was it when a spirit come before Jesus, that was something wrong with it, the Spirit that was in Him revealed it. See? And the woman when It revealed it, she accepted it, and said, "You must be the Messiah. We know that when He's coming, He will tell us these things."
Peter. When he come, oh, he kinda wondered what Andrew was talking about. He said He is the Messiah. And when he got to Him, He said, "Your name is Simon. You're the son of Jonas." That was enough for him. See? He knowed He didn't know who he was.
But He knows who you are. I don't know who you are, but He does. I don't know nothing about you, but He does. Now, here it is. Now, the Spirit of God is here at the altar. You knew something happened. You're here for a nervous condition. That's right. You have arthritis also. That is true.
Do you believe? I never seen the woman in my life. Now, isn't that sweet, that real... I know you're bound to feel... I'm looking at It. See? Just like a sweet settle in your heart. I see a man come up here. It's your brother. You've been praying much for him. I see a younger--younger man, it's a--must be a minister. It's your son. He has a spiritual problem. You've come a long ways to get here. You come from the South coming this way. You're from Tennessee. You're Mrs. Haybor. Go back. You have your request...?...
L-60 If... Now, I never touched the woman. The Holy Spirit did that. Now, that's the same... Is that the same way it happened in the Bible? When that woman said, "You must be Messiah." Now, that don't mean me be Messiah, that means that the Spirit of the Messiah is here. We're just men and women. It's the Spirit of the Messiah.
Now, you receive it; be plucked up out of that old unbelief and be planted right by Him. See? Now, raise yourself up and say, "Lord Jesus, Thou being the Son of God, the High Priest, Brother Branham just said You're seated in the Majesty above; You were predestinated. Before the foundation of the world, You were slain to bring this result, that me, a halfway believer trying to believe, might be made fully to believe. Let me touch Your garment; You have him speak to me." You with... You in the audience, you say the same thing. "For if You are the same yesterday, today, and forever, You--You--You let me touch You with my faith, laying aside all thoughts of disbelief, let me touch You.
L-61 I believe you raised your hand too, that we were strangers to each other. All right. Now, if the Lord Jesus can reveal to me something that--that's wrong with you, or something some way, you wouldn't believe that--that... That this Lifeline, that the Church is actually planted in God. Jesus said, "At that day, you'll know that I am in the Father, the Father's in Me, and I in you and you in Me." See, it's that Life of God flowing right down through the Name of Jesus Christ, right down into the Church. See? Makes us one. We're branches. We're representatives of His. If you believe that, that foot trouble would leave you. Would you believe it? All right, you can have it. And your husband there would be healed also. Do you believe he would? of the hernia? And you, sir, believe that you would be healed? You do? Got a daughter also. You have a spirit of some spiritual trouble. You come from the North, coming this a way. You come down the highway; you're from Austin. Your name is Miss Wyatt. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD. Go back to Austin now, and be healed, and be made well. God gives you the desire of your heart.
L-62 If thou canst believe, all things are possible. The Life of the... Life of Christ in the branch. The branch is not Branham Tabernacle, branch is not William Branham. The branch is whosoever will be plucked up out of your unbelief and planted into Him.
I believe you raised your hand that also we were strangers. I don't know you; God does know you. You're not here for yourself; it's for the child. I see the Light hanging over the child. If God will reveal to me what's wrong with your child, will you believe me to be His prophet? and believe that I tell you the truth? You would? The child has a heart trouble. It's something like a valve, the doctor said. It's been examined. He wants to send it to the clinic right away. That's right. You're from here in Jeffersonville, over here on the street, Fulton Street, by... That's right. And your name is Miss. Berkhart, Irene Berkhart. Return back and believe for the baby; it'll get well.
If thou canst believe, all things are possible, if you just believe.
L-63 This woman setting here with that nervous trouble, yes. Forget it. You're going home and be well now. If thou canst believe...
Got your hand up like this, got back trouble. You believe God will make you well? You've ready accepted it? Then go home and be well. Jesus Christ makes you well.
Yours is kidneys, so go ahead. You got yours too, sir. God bless you.
Have faith in God. Don't doubt.
Colored woman... There's two of them. Right back in the back there, growth on the throat--in the throat; believe with all your heart. You believe it, lady? Little bonnet like on thing. You believe? Raise up your hand. All right. Go home, it'll leave you. Amen.
There's a younger woman than this. I don't know you; God does know you. You believe that He could make you well? Well, go back to New Albany, Miss Pearl Allen, and be made well. Jesus Christ healed you. You go believe it. If you believe it with all your...
Have faith in God. Do you believe with all your heart?
Now, isn't... Oh, there's just everything happening over there. If you can just believe it, friends.
L-64 How do you do, sir. Do you believe Jesus Christ, the Son of God? Do you believe me to be His prophet? You believe that what I would tell you... You'd know whether it's truth or not. You believe what I preached about this morning is the truth? You do believe it. You're here for a good thing. You're here to get rid of a habit; that's smoking. I see you looking at it, and condemning the thing, and holding it away from you. That's right. Don't... If you bel... Listen, you want prayer for you wife. She has kinda dizzy spells like. Mr. Courtrock, return to Owensboro, Kentucky, where you come from. Don't touch another one. Jesus Christ makes you whole. Go in the Name of the Lord; it'll leave you.
You believe?
L-65 Now, look, this man coming here, just lay your hand on mine, mister. Here, your back trouble's gone. Just go on down through there thanking God, believing it.
You want to go eat your dinner? The stomach trouble will leave you if you'll believe it. Do you believe it? Go on your road. Just praise God and say, "Thank You, Lord."
How many believes with all your heart?
God bless you. Your back trouble also leaves. Go and praise the Lord, and say, "Thank You, Lord."
You have a trouble that a lot of people out here has; it's nervousness. Makes your heart carry on, heart trouble.
If you believe with all your heart out there, how many's got a nervous heart and things, raise your hands like that? Look out here. How could you ever call it? See? You believe with all your heart? You do too? All right, go and be healed in the Name of Jesus Christ. Don't doubt a bit, but believe what has been said to you is the truth. Believe that you are healed; you shall have what you ask for. The rest of you to the same. How many of the rest of you out there's got... All right, sir. How many out there that needy of God, raise up your hands and say, "I..."
L-66 Look, get this. I cannot heal anybody. I am a man. If Christ was standing here, He could not heal any of you. He's laid down a program, and that program is you believe that He died for you, you can be healed by that. That's the only way. It's faith healing. Faith believes that Christ has paid the price for you. How many understand that now? All right, how many accepts that? All right, while we pray, lay your hands on one another. Lay your hands over on one another, each one pray.
Now, you can go to your seats. God bless you now. Be made well...?... Yes, that's right, it's nervous condition, but it'll--it'll leave you. Walk down through there now and see if that... Begin to feeling different, aren't you. Sir, you was healed standing right here. Notice how he walked off the steps then without that? See? I'm not... You're all right now. You can go home and be well. The Lord bless you.
L-67 Now, with your hands on one another... See, we haven't got much time; it's nearly noon, and we got a baptismal service yet.
Surely, surely, people. The great Life of God, the great Holy Spirit, Who infallibly shows that He's present, shows that that Life coming from the throne of God is pulsating out into the branches to show Life... Don't you believe that? Then the... No, I never healed any of these people that come up here. Their faith did it, because they were told something that's the truth. If you were here, it would do the same thing.
Now, to you out there, He's revealing to you what you need. Now, while we pray, altogether pray, you believe every Word to be the truth and watch what happens; you'll be healed. Now, you pray for the person... Don't pray for yourself; pray for the person that you got your hands on; let that person pray for you. Pray for one another.
L-68 The Bible says this now. The very Bible that said, "The works that I do shall you also," said this: "These signs shall follow them that believe: If they lay their hands on the sick they shall recover." Now, the God that made one promise and keeps it... If you're planted in that--by the rivers of water, it brings every Divine Presence of God, every promise right into your connection. You're a tree that's planted by the rivers of one Water. That one Water is Christ, His Holy Spirit. There's healing; there's salvation; there's joy; there's long-suffering, meekness, gentleness, patience, all kinds of gifts laying right in that one precious Name. "Whatever you ask the Father in My Name, that I will do."
Now, you pray in the Name of Jesus for the person you got your hands on; I'll pray overall for all of you. Let the Holy Spirit that's present now heal every person.
L-69 Lord, we would ask that Your kindness would continue with us. Each one is praying in his or her own way. They have seen the Spirit of the living God made just as real as It was at Galilee, just as It was when Peter came there by the shore of Galilee and Jesus told him who he was; and just as real as It was when Nathanael came, and He told him where he was the day before; just as real as It was at the gate of Samaria or at the well. Surely the people could say, "This is the Spirit of the living God."
Lord, give faith and presence of mind, and Presence of the Holy Spirit, that each one praying might pray for the other a prayer of faith. I'm asking now, Lord, for those who have their hands on someone, that You'll give them unchanging faith just now for that person. And of course, that will result back to them. Oh, let it be, Lord God, let it be. We might bring them one by one across the platform with the same results. But still, it'll take a faith, a faith in the individual to believe God.
L-70 And it is written, "These signs shall follow them that believe: if they lay their hands on the sick, they shall recover." O Lord, keep Thy promise this morning to every believer, and may the Holy Ghost just now move into the bodies of these sick people and take away all sickness and diseases. May there be such a confirmation of it, until the hearts of those people will jump for joy, believing that God has made them well. May they go from this tabernacle singing and rejoicing, and believing that God has made them whole. May they return at another date, happily rejoicing, testifying as hundreds could testify today around the world of Your healing power. This prayer we say over this people, asking it to be so in the Name of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. May the Light of God break forth and heal all. Amen.
I can, I will, I do believe;
I can, I will, I do believe;
I can, I will, I do believe
That Jesus heals me now.
Do you do it? Raise your hands.
I can, I will, I do believe;
I can, I will, I do believe;
I can, I will, I do believe
That Jesus heals me now.
L-71 [Blank.spot.on.tape--Ed.] Believe that. I've visited people's houses, and they'd cook good dinner. Have to boil me a cup of hot water and set me down by a little barley broth, and them with all kinds of good stuff on the table. One day I said to the Lord, "I believe, I believe."
Oh, my. I walked down the street with my first, now full of food in my stomach, singing:
I can, I will, I do believe;
(It'd tried to come up; I'd push it back.)
I can, I will, I do believe;
I can, I will, I do believe
That Jesus heals me now.
Yes, sir. That's been twenty-five years ago. He's been real to me since then. I'm just so thankful for it. May it be the same thing for you. God bless you.
Now, they're going to have baptismal service just in a few minutes, I believe, that is if there's some here to be baptized into the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. If there is such people, so we'll know whether to dismiss the audience or--or hold them just a little bit, would you raise your hands if somebody is to be baptized into the Name of the Lord Jesus? One, two, three, four. All right. If the women will go to this side here, and the men over here for preparation, if you will, while we sing once more, I...

59-1004e - Faith Assembly, Clarksville, IN (Paragraphs: 59 - 77)
L-60 Now, He never said He'd come back in a body form and do it, but He would send the Holy Ghost that would dwell in us, that that Holy Ghost would Divine the secrets of the hearts. For He'll show you things to come, reveal the secrets of the hearts. Is that true? He promised it. Then if He's the same and I...
I say this, that I believe that this great Spirit that's among us is the Holy Spirit. I believe that He called me for this purpose. Doesn't make me any more than the man that got saved this morning, just your servant, your brother. Makes me less than you, because I'm sent to serve you. I am a servant to the public. A public servant is a minister, to serve the public. To be the underdog, to take this knocks and drives of the public, whatever it is, stand there. And if you haven't got grace enough to smile and take it, then you ought to go back to Calvary and reconfirm your commission. That's what you're supposed to do.
L-61 Now, but if Christ is here, then let Christ speak. I don't know the woman; God knows. I don't know the woman. I don't know nothing about her. But if I've told the truth, then Jesus Christ has to stand by His Word, because It is the Truth. Does that make it right? All of us believe that. All right.
Now, here's where the showdown comes, is the Scripture right, or is it wrong? Now, here's where it is, not in some dark rooms; it isn't out yonder where the devil works; it's right here before the house of God, right here before the anointed saints and the children of God, the purchase of His Blood.
L-62 Here we stand, both of us, before God, before this holy platform, this Bible, the Holy Spirit present. Now, what's going to happen? I'm a man just like you are. Now, it has to take Divine, has to take Spirit or it won't work. But I know that He's here. He made the promise; He can't go back on the promise.
Now, Lord, from henceforth, I pray that You will manifest Yourself that people might see that You're the Son of God. And this is permitted by You to fulfill the Word to we Gentiles. The Jews saw it in their day; the Samaritans saw it in their days, but the Gentiles didn't see it because it was hid from them. And You said they'd have their day. Now, it's the Gentile's age, and You're showing them. If You revealed Yourself as Messiah to the Jews by telling Peter who he was, telling Nathanael where he was, and You revealed Yourself to the Samaritans by telling the woman that the trouble she had, then You cannot pass the Gentiles with just joining church. They have to receive the supernatural, because You're the same yesterday, today, and forever, and You make Yourself known the same. Grant, Lord, it'll be so to fulfill Thy Word. In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I ask it.
And Father, I pray that You'll protect the people, 'cause we realize that if evil spirits be upon these sick people, they'll go to critics or whatmore. So I pray that You'll protect and give mercy to all of us. We ask in Christ's Name. Amen.
L-63 I just want you just to answer. First, I just want to talk to you like our Lord talked to the woman at the well.
Now, you say, "Why you doing that, Brother Branham?" Catch her spirit just like He did, said, "Bring Me a drink."
She come brought a drink--was going to bring a drink, but she said, "It's not customary for you Jews to ask Samaritans such."
He begin to talk to her. "But if you knew Who you were talking to..."
Now, upon this, we're strangers, meeting our first time. Then you're here for some purpose. I don't know what it is. But if the Lord God will reveal to me what you're here for, or something that you have done, something that you are looking to be done. And if He could tell you what you have been, surely He'd know what you will be. For you'll know whether that's the truth or not. You know whether that's true, 'cause you're the one that lived that part of life. But if He can tell you what you have been, then can tell you what you will be, you certainly feel good about doing it, wouldn't you? Sure would. So that's the secret of it. See? That's the power of it. That's the Holy Spirit to reveal Himself as He comes.
L-64 Now, you're a--you're a woman, me a man; we're standing here, you are--got a spirit or you wouldn't be standing there. I have spirit; I wouldn't be standing here. I perceive that you are a Christian, because just as quick as your spirit catches here, it's welcome. The Holy Spirit, which is above us, recognizes you as His child.
Now, I had no idea whether the woman was Christian, or a sinner, or a blasphemer, or what, but that Spirit... And now, if the congregation... How many ever seen the picture of that Angel of the Lord, that they got in Washington, DC and everywhere? See? Here it is, right here between me and the woman.
L-65 Now, if you'll admit, or you know that something's near you, a real sweet feeling. That's right. So the people will know it, just raise your hand so they see it. A real sweet feeling... I'm looking right straight at that Light. It's moving right between me and the woman. Now, that Pillar of Fire followed the children of Israel in the wilderness; It was in the burning bush that talked to Moses. When It was represented in a Man, Jesus, He said, "Before Abraham was, I AM." I AM was the One in the burning bush. And the works that I AM did when it was in Jesus, promised It would come in the last days and do the same thing again. Here It is, same Pillar of Fire. Scientist know it; the world knows it; the Church knows it; we know it; here It is. Will It work, is It the same thing? Certainly, It's the same thing.
L-66 There's some blood disease wrong with this woman. I see the blood, looks like it's thin or white. Oh, it's diabetes. She has sugar diabetes. That's right. I don't know the woman; let her be the witness. A test, we're showing something that was sugar diabetes. That's what's wrong with you. That's true. Now, you say, "You guessed that, Brother Branham." We'll see if I guessed. Besides that she suffers with a tremendous nervousness. That's right. You got something wrong with your legs also. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD. It isn't guessing, is it? You're not from here; you come from the south; you're from Texas. Your name is Miss Christian. Go back; you're healed. You can...?...
Now, it isn't guessing, is it, friends? It's the Spirit of the Lord. If thou canst believe... Just a moment. See? She's just rejoicing now, having a wonderful time in the Spirit. See? Something happened to her. The curse left the woman. If you'd been suffering like that, you'd probably be feeling the same way.
L-67 All right, lady. Now, do you believe that the Lord Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever? If the Lord Jesus will speak through me and tell me what's your trouble, you'll know whether it's the truth or not. You're not here for yourself; you're here for somebody else: your son. The son has a lung trouble and trouble with the bowel. Now, that handkerchief that you wipe the tears with, put it on him; don't doubt; he'll get well. Don't doubt. God bless you, sister.
How do you do, lady. Now, this woman standing here is shadowed to death. Uh-huh. You believe the Lord can heal you? God heals cancer; you know that. Cancer of the breast... That's right. But you're accepting your healing. You're Mrs. Woodward. Return, believe with all your heart, it'll leave you. If you can still believe just like you are now, you'll not die with it. God bless you; go on your road and rejoice. Have faith.
L-68 Now, this is the lady, I believe, that spoke to me this morning, said she'd been healed in the meeting before. All right. Seven years ago. All right. Just move up off the fan there, if you can. Maybe you can hear me a little better. Just move this way just a little closer. Then as far as I know, we're strangers to each other. No more than just saying, "Howdy you do" to you, this morning. Now, I told you if you wanted something for discernment, better wait till tonight, so that we could get together in the room and let the Holy Spirit reveal something maybe that would help us.
L-69 Now, you're very sick, 'cause you can't hardly stand there. And you--you want to believe; you're trying to believe. You was once shadowed to death too, had tubercular, or something like that that you had years ago. And now, you got trouble in your throat, and you're afraid it's cancer...?... You're afraid that that's what it is. You're wondering if that is true. Also you're re--you want prayer. You're praying for something or someone that's in your home. That's right. You are from Ohio, Mrs. McCarroll.
O Lord God, Creator of heavens and earth, cast away the fear from this child. If You spare her life years ago from that shadow and see it pass away, it could be likewise tonight.
I condemn this devil. Leave the woman in the Name of Jesus Christ. May she return and be well, come into future meeting giving testimony of this healing, in Jesus Christ's Name. Amen.
Don't doubt a bit; go home; get well. Sure, I believe you're all right. Just walk on out there rejoicing and giving praise to...?... If thou canst believe, all things are possible.
L-70 Do you believe, sir? Do you believe me to be His prophet? It--not--It... Just His servant (See?), let's say it like that. We're strangers to one another. I--I don't know you and you don't know...
Now, there's something happened somewhere. Something happened in the audience.
No, it wasn't; it's a...?... It's--it's somebody you're praying for; it's a child. That's right. All right. It was a child. I thought it was a child in the audience, but it's your child. Oh, it's several things wrong. It's up for a hernia operation and so forth. You're from Illinois. Return back. Have faith; and the child will be healed. God bless you...?... The Lord bless you.
Thou believest? Have faith in God; don't doubt.
I know this man setting here in a corner. I don't know his name, but I know that he come here... He comes down every once in a while; he's from Michigan. But he's setting there praying. I don't know what his trouble is till right now, but I do know now. So I'm going to tell him, 'cause I believe it's going to help him. Your back troubles left you, so go out...?... Have faith.
L-71 You believe with all your heart, sir? Blood trouble: diabetes. And you're not from here either; you're from Georgia. You're Mr. Johnson. Go back; believe with all your heart; it'll leave you.
Now, oh, I... I don't know you; I don't believe. But I seen Mrs. Shire appeared here. Is Mrs. Shire in the building? Oh, she's praying for the same thing's wrong with this woman. You got stomach trouble, and you got stomach trouble. That's right. It's that demon trying to hold each one of you. You're healed. Go on and be normal...?...
L-72 You don't believe that, do you? You believe God will heal him and make him well, the little boy? Afraid of TB... But you believe that God will make it, it'll be all right? Don't worry, Sister Funk. It'll be all right. God bless you.
Who else has got prayer cards? Look about one or two more, I guess.
Is that your mother? I see her standing by you then. She's got a goiter she wants prayed for.
If thou canst believe, all things are possible. Just have faith in God. Just any of you, look and live. Do you believe it? Why, Christ is here.
L-73 Feel different now, don't you, sis? Now, you go home and be well now. Just... Why, sure, certainly...?... Sure. Amen. Just... See, you--you've got that complex wrapped around you. See? But the power of it broke just a few minutes ago now. Just keep believing; press right on; go forward; speak. "By His stripes I'm healed." Stand right up to it. You just go on and be well. Everything will be all right. Looks all light around you now where it's dark when you was on here, the platform. You're all right. The blessings on you now, if you'll just keep on going.
Blessed be the Name of the Lord. Do you believe with all your heart? I just feel like the Holy Spirit wants to do something right outstanding. Amen.
Stop crying over there, lady. Your praying for a friend that's in the New Albany Hospital with TB.
You believe He's here? Well, let's bow our heads just a moment now.
L-74 Holy Spirit of God, while my flesh is a trembling, anointed with Your Presence; not only mine, but others in here; the power of Your resurrection lives among us just now. We are aware that we're standing before the living God Who shook Mount Sinai. Not only that, but He'll shake the earth at His coming. Who raised up Jesus from the dead, and standing here in this little church tonight. Lord, we could not build a place that would be worthy for You to come to. But in Your humility You've come to the humblest. We're so thankful for that. You have visit us. You've proved Yourself among us. We believe Your Word. Lord, I spoke It as Your servant. Now, may we go forward as the message has bid us. May we go forward in the power of His resurrection.
May there not be a feeble person. May the Holy Ghost just completely take into this building now and heal every person that's here. May there not be any sickness left among us. May there not be one doubt among the people. May there be such a shaking among the people just now, that they'll feel that all things are well. Grant it, Lord.
L-75 While we have our heads bowed, I want person who you're setting next to, I want you to lay your hands on the person next to you. Just lay your hands on them. Inside or out, no matter where you are, lay your hands over on one another. I don't care what you have need of; that doesn't matter a bit. I don't care where the person is: might be across the seas, across the ocean. No matter where it is, God covers all space, fills all time. He's omnipotent; He's omnipresent; He's--He's infinite; He's here now. He hears your prayer. The Bible said, "These signs shall follow them that believe." And each one of you are a believer. "If they lay their hands on the sick they shall recover." You've got your hands on one another; you're connected up here as a group. Now, I want you to pray for each other. Pray in your own way. Each one of you, just start praying; pray for the next person. Say, "Lord, heal the person I got my hands on."
L-76 Lord Jesus, as they are praying, hear their prayers, Lord, that they might know that it isn't just one servant. They are Your servants. We're all one. We love You, Lord. Our different phases, our different creeds, our denominations never separates us from the living God. We are now in His Presence. We're thankful and grateful that You're here. We're unworthy of Your Presence, but we pray that You'll answer our prayer.
We're doing this according to Your Word. You said, "These signs shall follow them that believe: if they lay their hands on the sick they shall recover." And they're laying hands on each other. Let the great Holy Spirit Who can reveal the secrets of the heart, that was promised by the Bible, the living resurrected Jesus Who promised to be with us to the end of the consummation, let Him now perform the work that He promised. We believe You, Lord, as we commit this audience into Your hands, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
L-77 Upon the basic authority of the written Word of Almighty God, by the evidence of the Holy Spirit, Who is here present, that knows the secrets of the heart, and reveals the secrets to the people; upon the Presence of Him, the basis of God's Word, I pronounce each and every one of you healed in the Name of Jesus Christ.
May you go and never sick no more. May God bless you and protect you. I hope to see you again real soon. Until then, the service back to the pastor, Brother Jackson. God bless you.

59-1004m - Faith Assembly, Clarksville, IN (Paragraphs: 55 - 77)
L-56 You like them old hymns? Oh, I... You can have all your little chopped up shotties that you want, give me them old heartfelt Blood songs that does something down in here, wrote by the Holy Spirit, penned out by God. They're real.
Well, the Lord bless you real good. Hope to see you tonight. Turn the service to the pastor now, Brother Jackson. Informal...
There may be some here that can't come to the healing service tonight, just wants to be anointed and prayed for. There's a whole bunch of us ministers here would be glad to minister to you in any way that we could. Now, the regular healing service will be tonight. Now, that is, if you can stay and wait. If you can't, come right here now.
L-57 There's a lady's got to go in the back, that's got a heart case or something or other. I believe she's up here. Somebody pointed their finger up here. The lady here that's got heart trouble that can't come back tonight, that's real serious, and wants--and can't come in the line.
Now see, the reason we asked for the line, in there we can... Myself, everyone has a different way of praying. Some prays in one way, some another. Mine... If I know what I'm talking about, then I can act. But if I went out here to... Say I was going to fix an automobile, and I don't know one thing about it. Well, I get me a wrench and look around. I--I wouldn't know. See? Well now, many people just has that predominating faith that goes right out there and challenges those things and casts them away. To me, I have to see what God's plan is for that person. See?
L-58 You have to watch. A prophetic gift is a strange thing. You can do things with it and get yourself in trouble. How many knows that?
Look at Elijah, I believe it was, yes, Elijah. He was a young fellow, went bald-headed. And some little children was teasing him about being bald-headed. Said, "Why didn't you go up like Elijah did." And he turned around and put a curse on those children, and forty-two of them was killed. That ain't the nature of the Holy Spirit. See? That was that prophet angered, and just put a curse in what he said.
Jesus said on down in the Scriptures that I read this morning, "If you say to this mountain, Be moved, and don't doubt in your heart but believe that what you said will come to pass, you can have what you said." There you are. See, you have to watch what you're doing.
Now, look at Moses. He had power. It wasn't God's will to bring water out of the rock (How many knows that?) the second time? You're supposed to speak to it, not smite it. God told him to speak to it; he turned right around and smote it, 'cause he had the power to do it. God took him up on a mountain and said, "Look over yonder. See the land, but I'll not let you go over, because what you done down there at the rock." See, see? So you have to watch in do that. That's the reason I'm always trying...
L-59 And I feel like that soon, maybe within the next few days. I have a feeling that God's going to speak to me again. See? I'm laying in the woods day and night, waiting for that time. I've been feeling for the last two or three weeks that He was going to speak to me. I believe I'm going to have something changed. I--I've looked forward for it for a long time. The one, the prediction is given here not long ago, what would take place; it did.
But it just seems like down in me, there's something moving. And I just stay out, go early of a morning, out at night, waiting, watching to see what He will say. And every once in a while, I will get down on my knees and say, "Are You here, Lord? Is there anything that You want Your servant to know?" That's the reason I'm watching.
L-60 I want the hour to come where I... we won't have to have discernment, where I have faith without it. Now, I think a vision comes here, say... This woman, or this lady, or whoever it is. See, I don't know, man, whoever you might be, will come up here. I never seen you in my life. And yet, He shows me there who you are, what's the matter with you, where you come from, what you did to cause this. There has to be a cause for everything.
And what if somebody sinned. Maybe they did do something they ought not to have done. Maybe they ought to have done something they did not do, or something on that manner. And here they are with a... God permitting Satan to hold that curse on them, to bring them to something, to--to obedience. Sickness is sometime is a whip God uses to bring obedience.
And what if that person's standing there, and I say, "Oh, hallelujah. Glory to God. Praise God." Anoint them with oil, and pray over them, and I happen to cast that evil spirit off of them, and God permitted it to be put on there. I'm in trouble right then with God. See? See what I mean? I'm a... But when I see there that the Lord says a certain-certain thing. Maybe Satan just did it, and I see there's nothing in that person's life to enter it. Then I have faith to walk up there. I have faith, because I seen Him when He come to me and told me to do it. See? And then I...
L-61 Another thing is, maybe if they done something wrong, and I say, "You did a certain-certain thing," that's right. "Well, to make that right, I promise before God I'll make it right." Look back again and see them well out yonder years to come, still well. Then you know God's already spoke it, just waiting you to say the word. That's all. See? That's what takes... That's the way I watch, make my ministry slow. Take each case and watch it, then I know what I'm talking about. See? I know exactly what to say to the person.
Now, there has been times... I've seen death over a person. I wouldn't say nothing. I just say, "The Lord bless you. Have faith in God. God will heal you. You just have faith." Go on like that, knowing in my heart that they're not going to live, because... Well, you just don't want to tell them that, 'less--'less you have to. If the Holy Spirit reveals it, you know it's been done many times. Tell them, "Might as well get ready. You're going. There ain't nothing going to save you."
L-62 I had a little girl here some time ago. The father said if... "Heal that little girl, he'd be a Christian." I wanted that family to be a Christian. I went down to the house; the little child had double pneumonia. They'd give her all the penicillin that they could give her. Didn't take any effect. She just got lower and lower and lower.
And I went down to see her. I went in there, and I said, "I don't know." I said, "I--I'm going to pray." And I went in and prayed for her and with all my heart.
And the doctor come that afternoon, said, "Her fever has dropped." Next morning, he come. He said, "That child's so much better," said, "she can get up by tonight."
Oh, the father and I went to see her... met me, and he was rejoicing. He said, "Oh, Brother Branham..."
And I said, "Lee, I'm so glad to see your baby like that."
And the Holy Spirit appeared to me, said, "She's not going to live but three days."
And the father was going to come to Christ. Said, "Now, when you have your meeting, I'm ready to be baptized," him and his family.
L-63 And I--I couldn't tell him. I hated to tell him. I knew the baby was going to die. Went back and told my wife. Told oh, a lot of their friends and my neighbors and things, "The baby ain't going to live." Little girl, about eight years old, I said, "She's ain't going to live. She'll be dead within three days. I seen that mother standing there crying, bowed her head three times, the tears running down. Seen a little white casket pass through the room when I was standing there." I said, "She's going to go."
"Well," said, "you ought to go tell Lee."
And I said, "I don't want to tell him." I said, "I love little Beatrice first, and I..." You all know who I'm talking about. So I said, "I love little Beatrice, and I--I don't to hurt her to know it, and I don't want to tell the father." And--and I said, "I don't know what to do. But I know the baby..." And three days, she was gone. See? I did, but I didn't want to tell the father." See?
L-64 Now, that way... Now, lots of times I've went and prayed. In Africa there where there was only about three or four people on the platform. And when something would take place on the platform, I just made a congregational prayer. And twenty-five thousand miracles taken place at once. See? It's the people's faith. Now, a lot of times we bring the people right up to the platform, lay hands on them, pray for them, send them out. They go out and get well. See? So it's just whatever the people thinks. It's their faith anyhow.
But to curse a thing, I want to know first what I'm doing. That's me doing it then. If you come have hands laid on, that's your faith, that's what you believe. You understand what I mean now, everybody? See? And I'm afraid to say. Here comes a person; and I don't know nothing about them, never seen them before. "Brother Branham, I got so-and-so with me. And I--I--I--I got cancer. I got tubercular." I'm just afraid to say that. See, I don't know what I'm doing. See, I--I'd rather say, "I'll pray for you." See, like that. But when I can see a vision, and see what's going to take place, that's different. See, I--I know what to do. And I--I--I understand then what... It's just like walking into anything. But a lot--lot of times I pray for the people hundreds of times.
L-65 Brother Shire setting right back there. I'm looking at him now. I been somewhere to a funeral service, buried Sister Roberson's mother. Brother Shire, I never seen the man in any more condition, just than he was in. I... Migraine headaches, or something or other... I don't know. And you got to a place where you was unconscious like, didn't know nothing. Walked right into his room, just had a word of prayer, and walked back out. I said, "Just as certain as I'm standing here, he will he--be healed." And that was it, walked right out.
Mrs. Wood there, her mother laying dying with a cancer on her face, sore. You know what it is, you even touch your lip here, in here, you can die in a little bit.
A bee stung a man down here below New Albany recently. Stung him on the lip and he died in about two minutes.
Anything right around here... Don't never squeeze nothing on your lips, 'cause it runs to the nerve that runs to your brain. Really, people... A man should never shave over their lips. That's exactly right. When your razor pulls, tears comes in your eyes. It's bad right in there, 'cause them main nerves.
L-66 Here some time ago, I was over here where Gene, Leo... There's a girl there worked at the apothecary, down near--down here at the apothecary. And I went in there to get some kind of a something or other for my kids, to get vitamins and stuff for their colds, and so forth. And she was telling it out there in the neighborhood. There's a certain minister there. He said, "Do you mean to tell me that Brother Branham would give one of his children medicine?" See, it's not knowing.
And I said, "Well..."
He said, "I ain't got a bit more faith in you than nothing in the world."
And just two days after that, he was shaving, cut his lip, squeezed it like that. He's in the hospital the next day under a oxygen tent. In about four or five days later, come out with his face was swelled like that (See?), come out like that, 'cause he squeezed a place on his lip. See? Have to be careful what you do about that, that lip trouble in here.
L-67 Now, back to the spirit, the spiritual side. See, you have to know what you're approaching, what you're doing. If you don't know, don't do it.
Now, in prayer for the sick, oh, I can say many many things. Mrs. Wood, that I was speaking of, her mother. A cancer done hit down into these veins here. Her face just swelled out. Leo, Gene and I was in Michigan. And we heard it on the phone. My wife called me, said, "Mrs. Wood's mother is a dying."
I walked across the river. There set Mrs. Wood all tore up. She said, "Her mother dying."
I went into the room and stayed with her a long time. No vision. But just as I walked to her, just something inside of me, said, "She's going to live."
I walked back out and Mr. And Mrs. Wood setting there, said, "Well, what did the Lord say? Did you see a vision?"
I said, "No."
They, right quick. They'd been in the meetings (You see?), and seen the visions. They gotten downcast. But just in a minute, I said, "But something told me. It's just as much THUS SAITH THE LORD as a vision that the woman's going to live." And she did.
L-68 A cancer over here, down in her face like that. And here it done went into the bone, eat all the bone out, and things around like that, all the meat down into the bone like that. And she's living today, not just hardly a scar there where it was at. See? And what scattered it? The doctor had give her a shot in it, and it scattered it on out. You see. And that--that did it. Or try to burn it off, or something they tried to do to it.
L-69 Now, it's the people's faith, what you got faith in. If thou...
Here, Jairus said, "Come lay Your hands on my girl, my daughter, and she'll live." You remember that?
The Roman said, "I'm not worthy You come under my roof. Just speak the Word and my servant lives." Is that right? There you are, it depends on the faith.
L-70 Now, is the lady here that's got the heart trouble that couldn't come back tonight? If she's here... On the left... All right, sir. All right, young lady. If you want to come right up this way now, you just come right ahead. Anybody else, you're welcome.
I want Brother Cash, and brother, your brothers here. I believe Brother Beeler's in the midst too, isn't he? Come here, Brother Beeler. Another preacher? Any of the ministers that we come now. We want to pray for this young woman.
L-71 They said it was heart trouble. Is that right? That's the greatest killer we have, heart trouble. But do you know, Jesus lives in the heart? Have you accepted Him in there? Do you--are you live here in the city, do you? Ohio. You can be healed of your heart trouble. God is a Healer. He heals the heart. He heals every member of the body, every organ.
Now, come over this way, brethren, let's come where they can pray...?... I want the congregation to bow their heads, if they will. Ministers...?... Oh, yes, I...?... God bless you...?... [Blank.spot.on.tape--Ed.]
L-72 Thou does make the heart. You make it to grow and to live. You can build a new wall where the old has been torn down. For Thou art God and God alone. And I think, what if this was my sister, Delores, my wife, Meda, or my girl, Rebekah. I'd want the church to pray with all that's in us, Lord, a prayer of faith for my child, or my wife, or loved one.
Perhaps it's somebody's daughter and maybe somebody's wife. It may be some baby's mother. She said she loves You, and she's accepted You as her Saviour. And she has a right to come to these privileges. And we come upon the authority of Your invitation to minister to her these gifts of healings. And by laying hands upon her, may the Word of God be made manifest in her body to take away this heart trouble. We condemn it upon the basis of Jesus Christ's own Word, saying that the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and God shall raise them up.
Now, in Jesus Christ's Name, let the heart trouble leave our sister. May she go with never one time a speck of it no more. And You shall have praise and glory for these blessings, which can only come by Your hands, Lord, as we minister according to Your Word. Amen. Touch her, Lord.
Now, have faith and believe. The heart trouble will never bother you no more.
L-73 Dear God, these feeble, wrinkled hands of this dear mother has ministered to her children and to her grandchildren, and has ministered to me a many times. And she's needy this morning. And we are standing after preaching that You're such a great God, and such a great powerful God, and not a god of history, a God of present tense, I AM. And I pray, O Lord God, that You'll send Your blessings of healing upon her body just--hands upon her... In the Name of Jesus, may she leave here today and get well, and live many happy years yet to serve You. And You shall have all the praise for these things, as she walks about and tells people of what's happened. Amen. Hallelujah.
Been tearing you up this morning. God bless...?... [Blank.spot.on.tape--Ed.]...?...
L-74 I prayed for her several years ago with tuberculosis. She was healed. She's sick, but she has to have discernment to know just exactly what--what she's done or what more about it. Which I do believe.
Oh, this young lady and them we prayed for awhile ago is going to be well. I believe that with all that's in me. I just believe it. Do you believe it too? I have the same kind of feeling about them that I had about your mother, Mrs. Wood. See? Like I did you, Brother Shire, many others here. I just feel they're going to be well. That's all. They--they have--they have drove a long ways and come to the service, and that shows their faith.
L-75 You know, the Bible speaks of that in the last days? That's right. All... It'll be light in the evening time. Is that right? It'll be light. The same Gospel, the same Holy Spirit, the same power of God would be here to heal the sick and afflicted as it was. And God is present right now, present right now. He's just as present now as He will be tonight, just the same, to heal the sick and afflicted. Isn't He good?
Let's sing a... chord of this, Wonderful Jesus Is To Me. Could we sing that? Wonderful, Wonderful Jesus Is To Me, Counselor, Prince of Peace, Mighty God is He. Let's sing it now together.
Oh, wonderful, wonderful, Jesus is to me,
Counselor, Prince of Peace, Mighty God is He;
Saving me, keeping me from all sin and shame,
Wonderful is my Redeemer, praise His name!
Oh, wonderful, wonderful, Jesus is to me,
Counselor, Prince of Peace, Mighty God is He;
Oh, saving me, keeping me from all sin and shame,
Wonderful is my Redeemer, praise His name!
I once was lost, now I'm found, free from condemnation,
Jesus gives liberty and a full salvation;
Saving me, keeping me from all sin and shame,
Oh, wonderful is my Redeemer, praise His name!
Oh, wonderful, wonderful, Jesus (Sing it, everyone now. Lift it up.)
Counselor, Prince of Peace, Mighty God is He;
Oh, saving me, keeping me from all sin and shame,
Wonderful is my Redeemer, praise His name!
Oh, wonderful, wonderful, (Raise up your hands when you... ) me,
Counselor, Prince of Peace, Mighty God is He;
Oh, saving me, keeping me from all sin and shame,
Wonderful is my Redeemer, praise His name!
L-76 Amen. Let's just raise up our hands now and thank Him, everyone in your own way.
Lord, we thank You for Your goodness. We thank You for Your mercy, for all that You have done for us. It's been good to be here. We would say with Peter and them, "Let us build three tabernacles: one for Thee, one for Moses, and one for Elias." But that blessed Voice said, "This is My beloved Son. Hear ye Him." So wonderful is Jesus, the Counselor, the Prince of Peace, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father. Be with us through the coming day, Lord. Bless us now. Give us a great service tonight. Bless Your servants everywhere across the world. Bless the meetings that's coming up across the nation, Lord, out in the San Jose, California, other places where the meetings and people are gathering now for the great services. Be with us tonight. Be at the folks at the tabernacle, all across the nation, everywhere that's called Your Name. Grant, Lord, that You'll be there in Jesus' Name.
L-77 I'll turn the service to the pastor which will dismiss. Six-thirty now for prayer cards...
[Brother Junior says, "I would like to say that we want to take up a love offering for our brother today."--Ed.]
I--I thank you, my Brother Junior, beloved. Thank you. Not at all. No, don't you--don't you do that. I feel--I feel real little. I feel real good now, you don't want me to feel any different, do you? So thank you just the same. He was just joking, see what I'd say.
