60-0109 - Tift County Courthouse, Tifton, GA,
L-71 Well, we'll start from where? Let's say number 1. Who has number 1? I--i--if they could raise up, or stand up, or something, it would pr... All right, come here, sir. Number 2, who has 2? If you can't stand up now, if you're crippled, when your number's called, tell us and we'll pack you. (Let's... I believe I better stand right here. See? Stand right here, so... Just let them stand right there. )
Number 2, who had number 2? Number 2? Number 3, prayer card number 3. Can I see the hand of the person, quickly now, so we won't... Has the this lady coming here, if she has prayer card number 2? Number 3, can you... Look at your neighbor's prayer card. Have you got number 3, lady? Number 4, who has it? Raise up your hand. Number 4? That lady? All right. Number 5? This man over here. They're just all over the building now, I suppose. Number 6, who has... Lady right there. Number 7? Someone... Number 7, prayer card number 7? Maybe they stepped out. Looky, it may be somebody deaf, though, and can't hear, somebody crippled, and can't raise up. Somebody look around.
L-72 Here's a little boy in a wheelchair; here's a lady in a wheelchair; look at their prayer cards. You got prayer cards? No, you don't have. You don't need any now; you don't need it. You just look this way and believe anyhow. If you haven't got a prayer card, that has nothing to do with it. See? You just believe with all your heart, sonny, and you, sister, and you'll get up and walk away and be well, giving praise to God.
Durban, South Africa, after the Holy Spirit had moved on the platform, we made one call and we made one prayer... How many ever knowed F. F. Bosworth? The saintly, godly, old sainted man, they estimated twenty-five thousand miracles taken place at one time. The next morning I heard something singing "Only Believe." I looked out, and here come seven van loads--big van loads--of crutches and wheelchairs, and boards, and things they'd packed them in on, going down the street; and the people that was on them the day, before going down the street, through the streets of Durban, singing "Only believe; all things are possible; only believe." Thirty thousand raw heathens at one time gave their life to Jesus Christ. That's ten times bigger then Pentecost. The Lord is here, friends.
L-73 All right, 7, 8, 8, 9, 10. Move over here, if you can, if you walk... 10, 11, 12, 13, 14? 14, where's it at? I didn't see it just then. 14, prayer card 14, here, all right. 15? I want to get every one, 'cause they... Don't want you to miss your turn. All right. 14?, 15? 15. 16, 17, 18, 19, 20. (One, two, three, four, five... ) 20, 21, twenty... How many you got? Well, we got the hall full right now. We'll have to pray with these, and then we can get some more just a minute.
All right, can you hear me all right with the microphone like that? It's a... Sometimes if the Holy Spirit should anoint, I don't know how loud I'm talking, or how low I'm talking, so I...
L-74 Now, I want to say to you: If He will do it... If the Holy Spirit... Here's the case now, here's the place where we have got to say... It's got... God has got to recognize His Word being preached the truth or it's an error. And if this Bible is a error, there is no God.
Do you Christians realize where I stand? Now, not only here to maybe two hundred, or--about two hundred people here, I suppose. But up in the world, there's forty and fifty thousand of them--hundred thousand, five hundred thousand--stand with the heathens, and million... Millions of people throughout the nations is going to hear about what happened. Stand there before witch doctors, and them standing there to challenge you on every move you make; you better know what you're talking about.
But the God of Elijah still lives today. "Prove Me, saith God." That's right. He hasn't changed. If He has, then He's mortal like I am, just lives a little longer. But God is infinite (You believe that?), omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent. Hallelujah! That's no disgrace to holler "Hallelujah." "Hallelujah" means "Praise our God," and He's due all praise.
L-75 (All right, now, if some of the ushers would come forth... ) Now, notice just a moment. Now, I take every soul in here under the control of the Holy Spirit, in the Name of Jesus Christ. No matter what happens, set still. Now sometimes, it becomes very strange, if any of you's ever been in the meetings. Now, just be reverent; keep your place. No matter what takes place, set still. The Holy Spirit is in charge. Now, submit yourself to God; commit your spirits to God.
And you out there in the audience now, that will not be in this prayer line, you start like this, saying, "Lord God, Creator of the heavens and earth, send Thy blessings upon me, Thy servant, and help me. And let me touch Your garment; help me to take away my unbelief. If Satan should come by me and put unbelief around me, take it away, Father. I'm going to watch for the words that's been preached, because I know that's the Scripture. I'm going to lay my church doctrine over to one side, just for a moment. I'm going to walk right up to You, God, and say this (If you believe it), 'That's the truth in the Bible.'"
Follow the Scriptures, and see if that isn't true. The promises, the works of the Holy Spirit... "Sirs, we would see Jesus."
L-76 And now remember tomorrow night the services; come early. And we'll pick up some more of the prayer cards tomorrow night; maybe get some more tonight. It doesn't matter about the prayer cards. The prayer cards has nothing to do with it (See?), not a thing. It's just getting somebody up here to talk to after preaching. I stay in the room and lay before the Lord, till I feel His Presence and see the Light.
How many has seen that picture of it? They got it in one of the... It's here. See? See? See? The science has proved it. If I die tonight, the millions around the world... Better than (I guess) ten, twenty million people I've preached to indirect or direct, they have knowed it to be so. The scientific world come and took the picture of it several times; it hangs in Washington, DC See? It's truth; my testimony is truth of Jesus Christ, if I go tonight.
L-77 Now, be reverent, everybody real reverent now. And don't take no pictures, or the flash pictures at this time, 'cause it... The Holy Spirit is a Light. How many knows that? How many knows that the Angel that led Moses through the wilderness was Christ, the Angel of the covenant? Sure it was.
Jesus said, "I come from God, and I go to God." That's why He said, "Before Abraham was, I AM." That was God speaking out.
And when Paul was on his road down to Damascus, what was it that struck him? A Light and put his eyes out. "I come from God; I go to God." That Life in the Church brings forth the same Light that was there: Same works, same signs, same wonders, same miracles, same thing, Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever. God be blessed forever more.
L-78 You, my friends, that I've never met no more than this. At the day of the judgment, we'll meet; that's one meeting we're going to be there. Christ, the Son of God, His Spirit is moving into this room.
I suppose this man and I, probably born miles apart, years apart, never seen him; first time we've ever met, as far as I know. We're strangers to one another. Is that right, sir? If it is, just raise up your hand so the people can see. We've never met before in life. Now... (You may put your hands down, all right.) I do not know him; I've never seen him. He's just a man, and I'm a man. He's standing there crying and thanking Jesus. Perceiving by that, he is a Christian; I don't know. There's many people says, "Thank you, Jesus," that's not a Christian. The rain falls on the just and unjust; by their fruits, you know them.
He might be here for some sickness. If I could heal him, and wouldn't do it, I'm not worthy to stand here as a minister. If I could help that man in any way, if he is sick, I--I--I... If I wouldn't do it, then I'm a hypocrite, professing Christ, and not enough man about me to--to try to help the man that God sent me to help. But I cannot heal him. If he's sick, God's already healed him when He died at Calvary. You... How...
I'd say, "Was you saved last night?" No.
I'd say, "Ten years ago?" No, no, my brother; you were saved nineteen hundred years ago. When Jesus died at Calvary, you was saved; you just accepted it. You just accepted it then. See? The way's already paid for healing and for salvation. You just... Your faith... Just accept it. Now, to bring the Presence of the Holy Ghost here to heal is to manifest Him, and you can see Him working through His Church, just like He did.
L-79 Now, let's take a Scripture that I talked on tonight. Simon Peter (the first one) was a man; he came to Jesus. Jesus said, "You're Simon; you're the son of Jonas" so forth, begin to talk to him.
Now, if He's the same Jesus, if this man's here for himself, for sickness; might be financial trouble; might be domestic trouble... I--I--I don't know, he--he might be just a deceiver standing there. If it is, watch what happens to him. See? If he's just making up, making out like he is, watch what happens. See? See if they don't pack him out. See? Now...
But now... Now, you're not playing church friends; this is church... This is God's house now. It's a courtroom, of course, of God's justice. Now, the Word of God is at stake, not my word, His Word.
L-80 Now, if I should turn and say something to this man, and tell him something about him that he knows that I don't know, there'd have be some way I'd have to know it. Is that right? It'd have to be some spiritual something, because we've never met before. Now, is that the way Jesus did in His day, proving He was Messiah? Then if He's the same yesterday, today, and forever, let Him perform His work now. Then all of you believe, if He... You believe?
Now, I don't know that He will do it; I don't say that He will. If He doesn't, I'll just speak to the man. If He doesn't do it, the only thing I can do is pray for him, lay hands on him, let him go. That's all I can do. Then the rest of you, believe with all your heart. We'll trust God to do it.
L-81 Now, Lord, from here it's to You now, Father; it's beyond man. I've preached Your Word just as clean and clear as I know it. Now, from here on, Father God, it's for You. I commit myself to Thee as your servant: Work, speak, see, do whatever You wish, Lord, through Your servant here, and all Your servants that's present. Manifest Yourself among us, for we are Your people, and we love You.
And we're sure that You raised up from the dead; God raised You up, and You're alive tonight in the form of the Holy Spirit, living in us, doing the same as You did nineteen hundred years ago when You walked in Galilee. It's Your promise. Let the Gentiles see that Your words are true: "As it was in the days of Sodom, so shall it be in the coming of the Son of man." For Jesus' sake. Amen. [Luke 17:29-30]
L-82 Just, only thing I ask, sir, is for you just to speak or answer as I speak to you, and then let you be the judge. If God knows what you have been, or something that you know back there, then if that's true, you'll be the judge of it. Then if He knows what has been, surely He could tell what will be, and you could believe it. That's only reasoning. But now...
Now, stop thinking that. I'm not trying to read the man's mind. See? See? Now, that come in; don't do that. I'm not; I don't even have to look at him. See? Now you remember, He knows every thought. See? The Bible said that "He's quicker, sharper than a two-edged sword even to the morrow of the bone, and a discerner of the thoughts of the mind." Jesus perceived their thoughts; that's the Spirit of God.
The man has something wrong with his legs, that he wants prayed for, soreness in his legs. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD. That true? It is true. All right, now do you believe? [Revelation 2:12]
L-83 You say, "Brother Branham, you guessed that." No, I never. Let's talk to him a little more. Now, I don't know what He said, but if whatever... See, it's... I'm looking at you, and seeing you somewhere else. See? It's a vision. Jesus said, "I can do only as the Father shows Me." Yeah, I see something in his legs. Then he's got something on his arms, or body; it's cancers, skin cancers. I see a woman appear here. It's his wife; she's in the meeting. She's sick, too. You believe God can tell me what's wrong with her? Will you believe it? Gallbladder trouble. That's exactly right. Do you believe God knows who you are? Mr. Gregory, return home and be made well; Jesus Christ heals you and makes you well.
L-84 You believe? That's the Holy Spirit. Now, that's the Holy Spirit, brother, sister. I never seen the man in my life. Let's see this prayer line; I guess there's nobody in here at all that I know of. But His goodness... Now that man ever where he was, with that little baby received its sight, and now it's a married woman with a baby; that's the way it happened. See? The cancer ridden, the blind, the deaf, the dumb; that's the way it happens. It's the Holy Spirit, God's Holy Spirit.
Where that man set down, there's a woman give up, got up and give him his seat. You believe God can heal you, sister? Right there in front of the man, setting here, got up and give him his seat. You don't have to come here; just stay right there. Go home, the cancers is going to leave you. Amen. Your faith made you whole. See, the blessing on the man from that healed you also as you passed by.
What did she touch? Tell me what she touched. She touched the High Priest, not me; I'm thirty feet away from her; but she was praying. Have faith. The Presence of God...
L-85 Now, lady, do you believe with all your heart? Now, this is another picture like it was in the days of the Bible, when our Lord met a woman, the woman at the well. Now, we are two human beings, as they were, but just different human beings. But the Spirit of God remains just the same; It doesn't change.
Do you believe that--that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the One that talked to the woman, that His Spirit is here now? All right. Now, if God is the same, and I don't know what you're here for, but He knows. And if He will reveal what you're here for, then you will believe Him and accept as your Healer? A nervous trouble, and you've got a growth on your right side. That's right. You've got an enlarged heart, and trouble you have with your head. There's someone appearing by you; it's your husband. He's here now. If God can tell me what his trouble is, you believe me? He would... I... Now, he's nervous (one thing), but he's got heart trouble and stomach trouble. That's right. Mrs. Colvert from down in Othelia, Georgia, return back to your home. You're both well; you can go and be made well in the Name of Jesus Christ.
L-86 What did he touch? It was his connection by his wife believing. Believe. Can you believe with all your heart? "If thou canst believe, all things are possible." I know some of you might think them people's a little noisy. If that was you being healed, you'd be noisy too...?... See? Just believe on the Lord.
Now, this woman standing here is a total stranger to me. I've never seen her in my life. We are strangers to one another, I suppose, lady. Right? But do you believe that the Lord Jesus can reveal to me what you're here for, your trouble, or something on that manner? Would you believe Him? You are very sick. You're suffering with a liver trouble called the cirrhosis of the liver. That is true. That make you believe? If God will tell me who you are, will it make you believe more? Miss Hollis?
There's some connection with this woman; I see her as a little girl playing with somebody that looks... some relation... You're something... You're a sister to Welch Evans; that's exactly right. Where is he at? Somewhere. That's right. Ever where you are... Go, be made well, sister, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
L-87 Now, I never seen the woman in my life, but I seen a little boy; he took something out of her hand, standing under a tree (That's right.) many years ago. Believe with all your heart now.
Come, sister dear. This precious old mother standing here, I never seen her... About like my mother at home. Would I be a deceiver to a poor woman like this godly, saintly looking, old mother standing here, and thinking my own mother at home. Mother, if I could do anything for you, I would do it; but I can't. I'm a man. But you're standing in the Presence of, not me, your brother, but the Holy Spirit. I want to ask you something. You're aware that something's going on. Now, I want to ask you, as a sister in Christ, a real sweet humble feeling, isn't it? 'Cause that Light's settled all... If that's right, raise your hand so the people can see.

60-0110 - Tift County Courthouse, Tifton, GA,
L-81 All right, now, we will begin the prayer line...?... How many in here is strangers to me, that I do not know you, or know anything about you? Raise up your hand. Down the prayer line, every one of you? How many you got out there now, fifty? Be hard to get them through. We--we will not stop just to discernment on each one. But the people might understand, know. See? We'll get just as many through as we possibly can.
You out there praying, now just take all your wearies and things and cast them over to the side. This is that moment, friends, that you've stood and waited for. Now, I must cease right now, because from here on, it can't be me.
L-82 What if Jesus was standing here wearing this suit that He had Brother Palmer to give me? What if He had on this suit and this woman was standing before Him, and she'd say, "Sir, I'm sick. Will You heal me?"
You know what His answer would be? "Child, I did that when I died for you back there at the cross." Is that right?
Well, now the only thing He could do would make some kind of sign to let her know, say something to her that He would let her know that it was Him. Is that right? Now, I don't know nothing about her, but by a gift I surrender myself to Him, and He speaks through my lips. God doesn't have any lips but yours and mine. He doesn't have any ears or eyes but mine and yours. Did you know that? We are the branches; He's just the Vine. The vine doesn't bear fruit, the branches. See? He's here in the form of Spirit. He will come physically someday in a corporal body but now He's Spirit in His Church.
"At that day you'll now that I'm in the Father, and you in Me, and I in you and He." So forth... See? That day you'll know it's been I in My Father working in you." See? God in us... [John 17:21]
L-83 Now, if He is the same as He was then and giving His last call to the Gentiles... Remember, that settled the Jewish dispensation. After they'd had years of theology and teaching, now the Church has had them years as Gentiles. Now, it's coming to their end.
Now, here's a case tonight exactly of Saint John the 4th chapter: A man and a woman meets, and God wants to show to the pe--to the Samaritans that He is God and that's His Messiah.
Now, the Messiah is the Holy Spirit, not me. Now, understand that. I'm a man just like you. But the Messiah is the One that's here, the supernatural One. Each one of you has got part of Him in you. See? That's the Messiah. Now, by a gift it has to come somewhere.
L-84 Now, if He's the same yesterday, today and forever, and this woman's standing here, and has the need... I don't know; her need might not be as that woman's was. I don't know what her need is. But if He is the same yesterday, today, and forever, and He wants you all to believe in Him and know that He's the same, like He wanted the Samaritans to know, He'd perform the same thing that He did then. Is that reasonable? Is that... And that's not only reasonable; that's what the Scripture said He would do.
Now, here I've never seen the woman in my life. If I did, I didn't know her. And I guess this is our first time meeting. You don't know me. She said she didn't--I didn't know know but she was back, out at the service Friday night out there. 'Course I would've never notice somebody setting back in the meeting. I don't know nothing about her. Never seen her, have no idea... She might be having domestic trouble at home. She might not even be married. She--she--she may be... She might be standing there just as a deceiver. See? She might be standing there as a--a--just a... [Hebrews 13:8]
L-85 She's saying, "Thank you, Jesus." That don't mean she's a Christian. I've heard hypocrites say that. And a lot of times go out and take another man's wife home with him (See?), turn around and say, "Thank you, Jesus." Certainly. That don't mean nothing. You got to be borned of the Spirit of God, have something in here that makes you a Christian. Sure. See?
She might be standing for someone else. Who is she? Where'd she come from? I don't know. God knows that; I don't. But now, if the Holy Spirit is here as I say He is... I want you to listen to this, mother, young lady, all of you in here. Listen. If Jesus Christ has raised from the dead and can prove that He's alive, then every one of His promises can be made just as true to you tonight as it was to them in Galilee. See? Just as... But is He alive? That's the next thing.
L-86 Now, Jesus said this generation would receive the sign of Jonah as the resurrection. Now, is He alive? Is this Jesus we're talking about, we know that He was crucified, died, buried. The Jews said He was stole away, but is He alive? He said He would be. He's come back again in the form of the Holy Ghost, be with us and do the same work, working through us to the end of the consummation or the--the age. Now, if He is, He will act the same way. He wouldn't do anything different. Now, the only thing I can do is to make myself through a gift... And then see what He says.
Now, if He will do such, both the lady and I with our hands up and the Bible laying here, we've never met in our life... And many of you out there, no doubt, God will go right out there tonight if you'll believe. He will say... You do this; you say, "Lord Jesus, I have a need in my heart. I know that preacher don't know me."
L-87 Someone was telling me the other--just last night and they went by, said they'd say, "I know that man didn't know me. (See?) He had no way of knowing me." Certainly I do not.
But God does know you. He knowed you before the world ever was founded. He knowed you. He knowed every--every flea would be on the earth and how many times he'd bat his eyes. He's infinite. See? He knowed the end from the beginning. Now, if--He wouldn't act a different way; He'd have to act the same way.
You say, "Brother Branham, you're stalling for something." I am. That's exactly right. If He don't come, I'll just have to leave here, for that... I'll just pray for the sick. I'm totally helpless. I've got to wait for Him.
L-88 How many seen the picture of It? They got pictures in Washington, DC
Now, in the Name of Jesus Christ, I take in the Holy Spirit, every soul that's setting present for the Kingdom of God's sake. Obey what you're told. From henceforth, it'll be Him. Let the audience know this, if I never see you again until the resurrection, the Spirit, the Life, the Pillar of Fire, the same One that led the children of Israel, that you see on that picture, it'll show the same signs. That was Jesus. He was in Him, the Pillar of Fire. How many knows that?
"Before Abraham was, I AM. I AM at the burning bush." If He acted like that in a man, He's here now. That same Pillar of Fire isn't two foot from where I'm standing right now. And that's true. Now, what He does, I don't know. God bless you. Sometimes it makes me completely unconscious, nearly, if I try to get in this whole prayer line.
But if I don't see you no more this side of the river, I'll see you on the other side one of these days. God bless you. God be with you. [Exodus 3:2, 14], [Mark 12:26]
L-89 Our Heavenly Father, we commit ourselves to Thee. Thank you for coming. We know the meeting's all in Your control now. And I pray that You'll take Your humble servant, I, your servant, to use my eyes and lips, Your servants out there with their ears and hearts to hear and receive. And through us together, working together, all of us, may the power of God take full control of this meeting. May there not be a sinner be able to leave the building without being saved. May no one that hasn't got the Holy Ghost, may they be filled tonight with Your Spirit. Of all churches, denominations, may every sick person, every afflicted person be healed. We commit this to You, now. Speak from henceforth, Lord. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
Be just as reverent as you can. Now, I speak to the woman. Our Lord met the woman at the well, and I'm doing the same thing here that He did there. He talked to her just a moment, 'cause I've been preaching. What was He trying to do? The Father had sent Him up there. He had need go by Samaria. He did nothing till the Father showed Him, Saint John 5:19. Then He went to Samaria. Then He didn't know what to do. This woman come out. He's just waiting. He begin to talk to her; said, "Woman, bring Me a drink."
She said, "It's not customary for You to ask Samaritans such; You're a Jew."
Said, "But if you knew Who you were talking to, you'd ask Me for a drink." [John 4:4, 9-10], [John 5:19]
L-90 The conversation went on till He found where her trouble was. That's the same thing I'm trying to do now by His Spirit (See?), find what's wrong here, what're you doing standing here. You be the judge whether it's right or not. See? I can on... I don't know, but if He tells me, you know whether it's right or not.
And then when He found the trouble... Her trouble was immoral.
Said, "Go get your husband and come here."
She said, "I have no husband."
He said, "You've said right. You've had five. The one you're now living with is not your husband."
She said, "Sir, I perceive that You're a prophet. We know, we Samaritans, we know that when the Messiah cometh, He will tell us these things. But I don't know Who You are."
He said, "I am He." [John 4:16-19, 25]
L-91 Now, if you're a woman of the United States, do you believe the Messiah would do the same thing today? Are you taught to believe that and believe that He'd do the same thing? I believe that.
Now, you're aware that something is going on. It's the Angel of the Lord coming between you and I, settling to you. The woman is suffering with something wrong in her breast. That's true. If that's right, raise your hand. Now, you see you don't see it. Now, you believe? That's His Spirit.
Now, she's a wonderful person. She's a Christian, a real Christian. Now, she's a lovely person to deal with. Let's talk to the woman just a moment, see what the Holy Spirit will say. Then the next one, we'll just pray for a few so we get the line through.
L-92 Then you start praying start out there, every one of you that has needs. Just start praying. See? Say, "God, that man doesn't know me, but let me touch Your garment, and You use his lips and speak back, then I'll be assure that the Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever, giving His final sign to the Gentile Church, the called-out Church, the separated group like Abraham and his group."
Now, sister, I don't know what I said. See? Whatever it is, it's on the tape over there. See? Whatever it was, was right, wasn't it? I have no way of knowing you. I--I wouldn't know you from anyone. But that's the only way. There's something supernatural here now that knows you. See? You're aware of that. You think it is the Lord Jesus? You think it's His Spirit speaking through me (See?) as His servant? You do. Thank you. [Hebrews 13:8]
L-93 Yes, I see. It's the woman, the trouble, see it back again now. It's in her--her breast. That's right. And she's got trouble with her side. It's true. Got trouble with your heart, trouble with your throat. That's right, isn't it? I didn't guess that? The Holy Spirit's here. See, revealed. No, she knows whether that's right or not. She raises her hand, solemnly: that's truth?
Now, you know that there's something here, some Spirit that knows that woman, coming from the Bible, a promise of God. Isn't He wonderful? Do you believe Him now? Now, just let that settle down.
I don't know you. God does. What if God would tell me who you are? He knowed Simon Peter. He knowed Philip. Do you think He knows you? Would that help you? Mrs. Taylor, go home, you're over your sickness. Jesus Christ makes you well.
L-94 The Lily of the valley, the Morning Star, the Rose of Sharon, the Lily of the valley, He that was, which is, and shall come, the Root and Offspring of David, Oh, His majesty, His mercy, His goodness, the Holy Spirit of God here at the platform.
For your baby? Many suffer from the same disease. Do you believe its little heart will get well and it'll be all right? Do you believe? Father God, the baby's too little to have faith. May it be well in Jesus Christ's Name. Amen. Don't doubt. The baby will live. Go home and be thankful to God now.
Come, sister. How do you do? We're strangers to each other. I feel like coming somewhere that I'm reading their mind. Don't do that; you hinder the meeting. Here, put your hand on mine, sister. Now I say, if God shows me out here what your trouble is, you raise your hand if it's true. You suffer with a lady's trouble, female trouble. If that's right, raise up your hand, this lady here? Lady... Now, is that mind reading? You're healed now, sister. You can go on back home. God heal...?... [Song of Solomon 2:1], [Revelation 22:16]
L-95 You don't have to come up, that arthritis has done got well from the...?...
Trouble in her back. Now, just turn, go right on home, saying, "Thank you, Lord Jesus, for healing me."
If you can believe... Do you believe? Have faith, now. Don't doubt. All right...
I don't know you. I'm a stranger to you. But if God will tell me about you... This is our first time meeting. But if God will tell me about you, you'll believe? Nervous, got a hernia, Reverend Orris, go home and be well. God be with you.
Your heart trouble's all gone. Go right ahead then.
The arthritis will leave you, if you'll believe. Will you believe it? You definitely want to straighten your leg here while you can, go on home now. Believe with all your heart. Be well.
That trouble in your kidney, back, go home. It's going to leave. You're going to be well.
L-96 Do you believe with all of your heart? Well, that old diabetes will never bother you no more, if you believe. Go home. Do you believe with all of your heart? Just have faith in God. Believe. Don't doubt. Have faith in God.
All right. You believe? You believe with all your heart? Want to stand right there? Do you believe God can talk to me about you standing there? I'd turn my head around 'cause there's people out there praying. I was trying to catch where It was at. I want to talk to you just a minute. If God will tell me what your trouble is or where your trouble is, or something, you'll believe with all your heart? You got nervousness? Heart trouble. That's right. Something wrong with your eye, growth on your irises. That's right. You want to be healed. Mrs...?... go home and be well...?...

60-0221 - Branham Tabernacle, Jeffersonville, IN,
L-115 Now, in the building where the people are, I sent Billy this morning to give out prayer cards. He call... [Blank.spot.on.tape--Ed.]
Are you sick and needy? [Blank.spot.on.tape--Ed.]
If God will reveal to me, like He did the woman at the well, and tell me what your trouble is, or something about you, that you know that I don't know, would it make you have faith to believe God? Would it make the rest of you have faith? Is this our first time meeting? Oh, you seen me before. But I'm a stranger to you, is that right? All right, may the Lord God grant your request.
L-116 Now, is it real or not? Oh, call on your intellectual religions. "Baalim," said, "where's he at?" Elijah on Mount Carmel, said, "Where's Baalim? Where? Wake him up." You don't have to wake Jesus. He's awake all the time. He's ever present, ever living, and ever able, the same yesterday, today, and forever. Amen. God remains God.
You believe your heart trouble's going to leave you and you're going to get well? You're not from here. You go back to Lexington and tell people what great things the Lord's done to you. [I Kings 18:27]
L-117 See? It goes over the top of heads of people, they'd never get it. A live church would grab that quickly, and know that the Presence of the Holy Spirit is here.
Somebody back in here raised their hand. Was it you, lady? Do you believe God can tell me your trouble? The old...
The brother out there on the end, I believe he said, awhile ago that... You believe, brother? You do? Then that skin trouble will leave you; you'd be all right. You believe it? You accept it as being healed? Raise up your hand, if you accept it. All right. He's a stranger to me. You know that, Pat.
L-118 A lady looking there, praying, looked at me, said she was a stranger. You believe the high blood pressure's going to leave you? That's right, isn't it? Raise up your hand if that's right. All right, have faith in God. You see what I mean?
How about some of you people that know me? You got something on your heart. Raise your hand, (See?), so many of them. I can't make it; It just has to come. You know, it's your faith.
Georgie Bruce, I see her sitting there. You're always trying to find something for somebody, Georgie. You was healed with a cancer. No question in your mind. The day that you come to this Tabernacle and walked out that door yonder, the Holy Spirit come upon me, and told you right there some act that nobody in the world knowed but you and God and another person. Is that right? That's right. You believe me, don't you, Georgie? You got something on your heart, Georgie. You believe God can tell me what's on your heart? Would that make the rest of you, people that know me, believe?
L-119 I know Georgie, but she's thinking of something. She's got two people, that's away from here, she's praying for. Both of them live in Corydon. That's right. Then she's got a person here, a man she's praying for that's out here in the hospital. And you're praying, not so much for his healing, but the salvation of his soul. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD. That's right. Is that right, Georgie? That's exactly right.
Somebody way back there raised up their hand, way back in the back, back in here. You, what about you? Was you raised up your hand, you're a stranger to me, this man setting here looking at me? I don't know you. Do you believe me to be God's prophet, God's servant? You believe the Holy Spirit, what I've told is the truth? You believe that? If you'll believe, you've o... That's the only thing you got, 'cause you're suffering with cancer. That's right. You're not from this city. You're from New Albany. That is right. And you got cancer. If you'll believe with all of your heart, you'll get well. Will you accept it? Raise your hand. Blessed be the Lord.
L-120 I believe that woman out there with the white-looking hat around her head, rai--colored lady, raised her hand. I haven't had a colored person yet. You believe, lady? All right, sir, believe with all your heart. You got heart trouble, stomach trouble, complications. Somebody brought you here this morning. THUS SAITH THE LORD. That's right, isn't it, lady? If that's right, wave that handkerchief you got in your hand, so the people will see it. I never seen the woman in my life.
Did you raise your hand? Am I a stranger to you? And you're a stranger to me. You believe God knows me, or God knows you? You believe He can tell me what's on your heart? You're praying for somebody. It's your father, has heart trouble. That's right. And you're seeking the baptism of the Holy Ghost, THUS SAITH THE LORD. If you can believe...
What about the little lady with her hand up like this? You believe? Your trouble is that rash on your hand, but you're praying for a grandchild. That's right. The child's not normal. That's true, isn't it, lady? You believe with all your heart for it. Now, I said, "child," wait a minute. Oh, there you are. Your son had a car accident: crippled. I don't know you, lady, but that's true. If that's right, raise your hand.
L-121 Now, Who's here? Who is It? It ain't me. How can I do that? Don't be numb of the Spirit, spiritual things. It's God here. That Holy Spirit you want, do you believe It now? Do you believe It now? All right, then receive It now. Now's the time to receive It. Believe with all your heart.
You that's sick or needy. I can't heal. No man can heal. I can't give the Holy Spirit. But the One that can heal and give the Holy Spirit, He's here, He's the One Who does it.
L-122 Now, bow your head. You believe right now, as I pray for you and these handkerchiefs.
Our heavenly Father, as far as I know, I went through every one that was strangers, as far as I felt myself weakening and giving away; felt led that this is the time maybe that the elected has seen. May each and every one of them, Lord, that was called and permitted to be called by Your Spirit; something, their--their faith, they had more faith that, some of them, than they thought they had. They just begin in their hearts.
And the woman touched His garment one time when He passed by, and He turned and said, "Who touched Me?"
And they said, "Well, everybody's touched you."
He said, "But I perceive I got weak." And he found the little woman and told her she had a blood issue, and her faith had healed her.
And the Bible said that, "He's still High Priest today that can be touched by the feeling of our infirmities." The Scripture said, "He's the same yesterday, today, and forever." And if He be the same, and the same High Priest, He'll act the same and do the same. [Luke 8:45-46], [Hebrews 4:15], [Hebrews 13:8]
L-123 And may the people see that the Spirit-filled Church is coming to a head. Christ is fixing to come and take His Church. His last great signs, as it was in the days of Sodom: Who spoke, knowed Sarah, and knowed he had a wife named Sarah, knowed her in the tent laughed; He said, "That'll be a sign. When you see that, remember, that generation shall not pass until all be fulfilled." Here it is. We're at the end.
Grant, Lord, that every sick person in here may know that the living Jesus Christ is present. May these handkerchiefs be blessed to every sick body that they go to. I condemn the devil, for the people. I cast him, by the Spirit of God, in faith, I cast away every shadow of doubt. And may every person here, that's ordained to Eternal Life, receive It this hour. May every superstition, every little quench, every little thing of the world, every little weight, as the Bible said, "Let us lay aside every weight, and the sin that does so easily beset us; that we might run, with patience the race that's set before us; looking (to what? to the church? to the organization?) to the Author and Finisher of our faith," which is here now, "Jesus Christ, the Son of God." Looking to Him Who... We don't have to take words that we know that's true, but yet them Words is made real to us this morning. That same Jesus that died, is not dead; He's rose again. And two thousand years later He's bringing His Church to a head. The spirit of Judas is working among them. But may they lay aside every stumbling block and everything, this hour, and receive Him. [Hebrews 12:1-2]
L-124 May they hear, which they have through the sermon. May they recognize now that the very Words that they heard has been made manifest, and they recognize it, that it's Christ. And may now they act, act upon it: receive It, and rise to their feet, give testimony; and go into the Kingdom of God by being filled with the Holy Ghost.
May the sick be healed. May the afflicted be healed. May every heart's desire be made right. Grant it, Almighty God.
L-125 Now, with your heads bowed, your hearts open, just give yourself a season of prayer; just before, I guess, the baptismal service coming, just before this. There'll be another service tonight.
Now, remember, don't let this opportunity pass. I been here now for two and a half hours or more, trying to just take my time, and bring in the Gospel, and laying it in just perfectly. Then we come right down to the end. And the very text: hear, recognize, act... See? Don't let it pass over your head. You've heard It. Do you recognize that His Presence is here? Do you know It's Him that's calling you? Then act upon It. God be with you. Have a season of prayer.
Brother Neville, you close in prayer, just go ahead and pray...

60-0302 - Madison Square Garden, Phoenix, AZ,
L-57 That same Jesus lives tonight. Do you believe that? How many, in here, believes that? Raise up your hand. Just say, "I actually believe that." God bless your hearts. Thank the Lord.
Oh, God, send mercy. Do you believe He's here now? How many of you is sick or needy? Raise your hand. See? Anybody that knows me, don't raise your hands. I don't want you to raise, if you know me. Just people that knows that I don't know what your trouble is, raise your hand, knows that I don't know your trouble. All right.
You that have a request, ask God. Here it is. Now, many of you people think that it's mental telepathy. I felt it here in Phoenix so many times, because you've had everything in the country storming in on you here. Think it's... Somebody hand somebody a prayer card, and by mental telepathy they transfer it. Oh, how far can a person get? Well, it's just that same spirit that lived back in them days. There's no prayer cards here; there's nothing here but the Holy Spirit. He's here.
L-58 Tonight, before we've ever had a healing service, before there's been a prayer card give out... I don't say this... And God knows that my Bible and hand to Him, I don't say this to be smart, to be different, but for the Kingdom of God's sake, that Phoenix might always remember, that the message that I preach to them is a truth from God's Word, and God's Spirit's here to back up every word that I've said. If He does it, then I've told the truth.
A man getting up from a wheelchair, that could be mental healing. You know that. That could be mental healing. It'd be impossible, you talk of a miracle, for something to happen here, for the Holy Spirit to go among this people, who I don't know, and reveal something that they ought to do or something about them. Why it'll be a million times greater miracle. For we even know by doctor's records, that many times, hundreds of people, that's been in wheelchairs for years, get up and walk away and things like that. Sure. Mental healing. Christian Science has it. But when it comes to a real miracle, it goes over ahead of people who are supposed to spiritual.
L-59 Now, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I take every spirit in here, under the power of the Holy Ghost. You, I challenge you, tonight. I don't how many trips I will ever make to Phoenix. This may be it. I don't know. I may come a hundred times more; I hope so. But I may not live any longer; you may not live. There's been many that's gone since I was here the last time. If I'll come back next year, there'll still be some here tonight, won't be here. I may not be here myself. But God will always be. Let He, Who is the Holy Spirit, prove now, that I've said the truth.
Now, be real reverent, if you will for just a moment. Give me your undivided attention, but pray.
L-60 All I ask you to do is pray. I cannot say, "Let me have you." I have to watch for the Holy Spirit. Now, be real reverent. This is something that you're preaching like this, and--and I haven't been out praying no more than just studying the Bible for the message. But I believe God; He told me that. I'll even turn my back to you, if you want to see if it's the--the... Not me, no, I'm a man, but the promise of God. It's the age; it's the hour. Don't you fail to see it.
Now, you brethren, you're... I'm going to let the audience be behind me. The Bible said that the Angel of the Lord had His back turned. Now, you know that I'm telling you; it isn't me. I have nothing to do with it. It's the Angel of the Lord. How many that understand that? I'm a sinner saved by grace. But God has to work through somebody. Man is God's agents.
L-61 I see a man here talking to the deaf and dumb. 'Course, they realize and understand; I can see them. I mean something that's a miracle, not say, "That man's deaf and dumb." or "The Lord says to me there's somebody in here got kidney trouble." Yes, but who is it? Who are they? Where they come from? What caused it? How do they get well? That's it. Don't want psychology; we want truth, God's Bible, the truth.
May the God of heaven, Who will honor His Word, grant tonight, that my hands will be free, the blood of no man upon me, I've told the truth, Lord, as far as I know it. You help me that the people might know that the message is true. Through Jesus' Name, O God, somewhere in this building, the unseen One, make Yourself known, Lord, if I can find grace in Your sight. Forgive me of all my trespasses, and use me tonight, Lord, if you want to bring this place, and this elect out of the city tonight, that's come to the meeting. That You might confirm it, Lord, through the truth, that I've told the truth to them, let it be known that You're Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever, and Your power is the same, and You sent me for this purpose. I pray in Christ's Name.
L-62 I just want you to pray. Now, you may raise your head. This woman setting here now, if you... I pray that God will let you see this. Can you see that Light hanging over this woman that's setting right here at the end? Right here at the end, a little heavy set woman, got her hands up... I believe you raised your hand awhile ago, that I know nothing about you. So it--if God can reveal to me, what--what you're there for. You might not want nothing. I cannot tell you. But if He will reveal to me, what you're there for, or something that's in your life, something that's in your heart, something that you've done, or something you ought not have done, would you believe me to be His servant, that it's His Spirit. Would you believe that, lady?
You know with your hand up, I don't know nothing about you, as for as your life or things. You might have seen me, and I might have seen you, 'cause I've been to Phoenix lots of times. But I--I don't know you. That's one thing, I do not know. That's true. I don't know one thing about you. But if the Lord would reveal to me something, being that you've caught this, the Holy Spirit there... Now, I... you... This girl might say, "Show me." I can't do it. It's her. It's the woman that touched His garment, that He turned to.
He said, "I do nothing until the Father shows Me." Saint John, 5:19. [John 5:19]
L-63 But that Light's hanging over the woman. I'm looking right at It. And if It... If that Light be the same Light that followed the children of Israel... When It was here on earth, It as made manifest in a body of flesh called the Son of God. That was Jehovah in the Light. Jehovah was manifested or tabernacled in His Son, which was the creative Son, Jesus Christ.
He said, "I come from God, and I go to God."
A little after that Paul was on his road down, after His death, burial, and resurrection, was on his road to Damascus, and that same Light blinded him. He said, "Who are You, Lord."
He said, "I'm Jesus."
L-64 Now, please, I ask you, don't--don't move around. Please don't. You broke that then. No matter how hard you try to preach, talk, beg, persuade, America is the worse place in the world to have a meeting of this type. I've went into Hottentot land where five hundred thousand set to listen at the meeting, not even one move would come. This intellectual world is... This United States is doomed to hell, as certain as I'm standing in this pulpit. There's not one hope for this nation, mark it in your Bible, see if I'm right or wrong. If I be God's Prophet, He will manifest it now.
Who are--who was that woman somewhere? Was--was it this woman. Over there? All right. It's gone from you now, sister. I don't see it, but may He will reveal it. Let not their sins be yours. Yes. There It is again. The woman's praying for a condition; she has a condition in her body. She's had a surgery. That was a gallbladder operation. And now, she's caused some kind of a condition, she's vomiting all--got to vomiting, kind of a nervous condition in the stomach that's caused her to vomit. But she's a--she's also praying for somebody else, and that's a man, a brother-in-law, I believe. That's right. And he's got stomach trouble. And he's shadowed all over in darkness; he's a sinner. That's what it is. He's a sinner. Those things are true, is that right? All right. Do you believe now, with all your heart? Then may you receive that which you've asked for. May you find it just the way that you've asked for it. God bless you.
L-65 How about someone else up in here somewhere? Way back, anywhere you are, pray, somebody that doesn't know me. You do this: You say, "Lord God, that man doesn't know me or know nothing about me. Let it be known tonight. Let me know it, Lord. All the people that know me, will know." That's the way to do it. See if it's true. Just pray.
Her husband wants healing too...?... setting right back there... Believe with all your heart? That growth will leave. That's true. I don't even know you or your husband.
L-66 Here's a woman setting right through here. She's kind of a middle-age woman, setting right out here looking at me, kindy gray. She's praying for a friend of hers. That friend has a bad cold. That is right, isn't it lady? And they take care of, like crippled children or something like that. They pray--or take care of... You believe with all your heart they'd be healed? Do you? If you believe it, they'll receive it, if you will believe it.
A lady right back here has got an asthma. You're missing it. Went right over the top of that lady, turned black as It could be right over here, because she never heeded to It. See It turned right black, and nothing come over her like that. She failed It. Oh, Lord God, do something. Help, I pray Lord. Don't--give them something that will shake them, Lord.
L-67 Here, there's a lady setting right out here, in a row, praying, she's got asthma, asthmatic condition. Her name's Mrs. Lake. Do you believe with all your heart? All right, Mrs. Lake stand up on your feet. I don't know you, but go home and be well and Jesus Christ makes you well.
Don't get scared now. If He knowed Simon Peter, who he was, He knows who she is too. You believe?
How about in this section, back in here? You believe? A lady setting here looking at me, the Light's over the woman. She's got a diabetic condition, that's bothering her eyes. That's right. She's got something wrong with her shoulder. It was caused in an automobile accident. Mrs. Ferris, that's your name, isn't it? All right, now you can go home and be well. Jesus Christ makes you well.
L-68 Do you believe? What about way back, way in the building? Here this man setting back here with the red jacket on, praying for your friend. You believe he will get healed? You do it? All right, raise up your hand, saying you stand up for him then. Right back there on the right hand side, one, two, three, four persons down. Stand up with the red jacket, praying that your friend--about your friend there. Believe with all your heart there, raise up and accept the healing of your friend. Go home, and find him well. Amen.
Hallelujah. God is still God. Can you say, "From this time, this time..." Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is here among you people.
L-69 Now, will you with habits, you that's burdened down with something, will you come here and stand for a word of prayer, while you know that the Holy Spirit is here? I did that for one thing, for the glory of God, that you who wants to be delivered from your troubles, come down here and stand here. You that wants to know God as your Saviour, and wants to be filled with His Spirit, come down. See?
"All the Father has given Me will come to Me," said our Lord. "All that the Father has given Me will come, but no man can come except My Father draws him. And all that He draws will come to me." I'm speaking in His stead tonight, "Come unto Me, all that labor and heavy laden. Ye shall find rest to your soul."
Quit being flusterated and wandering about. You'll never be any closer until you meet Him face to face. While remember, in the Bible, THUS SAITH THE HOLY SPIRIT, He's in your midst. How can you doubt? He's proved that His Presence is here.
Come, all ye now, that wants to find Him as your Saviour, wants to find pardoning grace for your sins that you've commit. Yet, you want to love Him, you want to do what's right, but never had the power to do it. Rise from your seat and come here now. I call you in the Name of Jesus Christ, knowing that the Holy Spirit's speaking in my heart, that indifference, and prejudice, and everything exists amongst the people. Come, get that out of your soul right now. The canker will canker you. Love and sweetness is the only thing that God will recognize. [John 6:44, 65], [Matthew 11:28]
L-70 God bless you, ladies. These people standing here weeping like babies, that's what God loves. Come every soul of sin oppressed, there's mercy with the Lord.
Who can go from this building tonight, and call God to any other sign that He ever promised that would be. Church member, lukewarm church member that knows the more then, "I've been a Methodist, Baptist, or Pentecost, or Presbyterian." You know God no more than that, and never met Him on those sacred sands, you don't know Him no more than that, I call you to the altar. And remember, at the day of the judgment, your blood's off my hands. You will never meet God in peace, never go to heaven, until you're borned of the Spirit of God with an experience that you know that something happened. And you might take some emotion, some intellectual conception, but you'll find that it fails when it comes to the end of the road. I mean the baptism of the Holy Spirit to meet God face to face, then your life is changed; you're no more the same. You're life is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, faith, goodness, mercy. That's what's in your life.
L-71 While we sing slowly, once more, so I'll be sure tonight. We're going to start healing service. "Come every soul of sin oppressed," my brother, if you'll chord it for us. There is mercy with the Lord. Let the singer now come forth, if you will. [Blank.spot.on.tape--Ed.]
Come every soul now, of sin oppressed. The Holy Spirit giving you an invitation to come, lovely, sweetly, bow. You might have seen the sick healed. That's true. We've had that for years. We've had that all down through the ages, but never did you ever see this till this age. And this is the last sign that God promised to His church, as it was in the days of Sodom before the fire. How long was it 'fore the fire fell? After that sign was done to the church spiritual? Remember, it wasn't to the church intellectual--church spiritual. All right, let us sing softly now, if you will.
...
every soul by sin oppressed, (Won't you come now?)
... with the Lord,
And He will surely give you rest,
By trusting in His Word.
Only trust Him, only trust Him,
Only trust Him now.
He will save you, He will save you,
He will save you now.
Only...
L-72 Let some of the Christians now rise up. Ministers, come around these people who are standing here now. Brethren, Christian believers, would you be interested now in helping pray with someone that they might find the Lord Jesus dear to their souls? Move right up here, close now, and move around. Everyone now, while we're singing. Let those who are Christians, and interested in people getting saved. You'd like to come and join prayer with them. Come now.
Only trust Him, only trust Him,
Only trust Him now.
He will save you, He will save you,
He will save you now.
Only trust Him, only trust Him,
Only trust Him now.
He will save you, He will save you,
He will save you now.
L-73 Now, let's all bow our heads, if we will. Brother David duPlessis, would you come here just a moment? While you're around the altar, each one of you now, while I--I want to give just a moment's instructions, while the audience would be quiet just for a moment. I want each one you remember, that God is here, promised Himself. Here He appears before us tonight, infallible proof that He's raised from the dead, and is alive tonight, in Phoenix, Arizona, in this Madison Square Garden.
Listen to me, my poor friend. Listen to me, my brother, sister. He will never be any more real till you see Him coming in glory. He promised this; and remember, He said, "As it was in the days of Sodom (before the fire fell), so shall it be in the coming of the Son of Man." Watch exactly.
Now, this is the church spiritual, although, it's dying. You see that. And that's predicted to be that way, but it would receive it's last message by the same sign that appeared at Sodom and Gomorrah. Do you understand? That makes the Holy Spirit right here now, Jesus Christ, the resurrected One.
Now, a gift that's sent to the church will never operate, unless somebody is out there to operate it. Gifts are not operated by random. It's operated by the power of God. And the power of God, in your life, brings the power of the Lord to me, to speak through me and tell me those different things. [Matthew 24:37]
L-74 I know none of those people. Ask them. Whatever happened, I know nothing about it. There's no contact at all. I just come in here tonight, and set down. Many of those people, wherever they was, has raised their hands right now. Ever who was called, if you're still in here, ever who you was, and I didn't know you, and you know I don't know a thing about what was said, would you raise up just to prove to the people that it's right? Ever who I was called--ever who was called out? Somebody back in here was called out, wasn't it? Yeah. There's one, two, three, four, five, five, six. Six that I know, standing right here, still in the building, that raises their hands that I don't know them, know nothing about them. As far as I ever know, never seen them in my life. But It just keeps revealing, speaking... That's exactly what Jesus said would take place in this day, just before the fire fell.
Yonder it hangs in Russia, to go up through yonder, to bring it down, judgment upon the nation, another Nebuchadnezzar, another Babylon, fixing to take over the place. Exactly what God predicted would do, for He put in the hearts of those people to bring revenge upon the earth, to take the revenge of the blood of the saints that died. We are here. We're at the end time.
