61-0205E - Central Assembly Of God, Tucson, AZ (Paragraphs: 78 - 103)
L-79 Not the Bible, and the other one. I said, "Both of them can't be right. One's right and the other one's wrong. Let the God of the Bible speak." South Africa, same way, before about two hundred and fifty thousand... Oh, He's still God. When the witch doctors, just put to shame, standing there, the enemy put to flight. The next morning about seven or eight big van loads of just crutches, and wheelchairs, and planks they'd been packed on, was going down the street, when Sidney Smith, the Mayor of Durban, called me, said, "Brother Branham, look out your window over towards the seacoast."
There come hundreds of people that the day before was on crutches and wheelchairs with seven of them great big African vans, as long as them two posts together, piled plumb high, full of that, coming with their hands up. Been at war with one another in tribes, walking the next day singing, "All things are possible; only believe." Twenty-five thousand healed at one time. Why? They wasn't all indocumated with everything. They were virgin. They heard the Bible; they believed It, accepted It, and it taken place.
L-80 Now, be real reverent. Keep your seats; be quiet. I don't mean to say you can't praise God, but just keep quiet and listen. Now--now in the Name of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, I take every spirit in here under my control for the glory of God. Now, be careful after that.
Now, I guess that in this prayer line here, every one of you are strangers to me. Is that right? Raise up your hand. If you're strangers, raise up your hand. I do not know you.
Now, if I could heal you and wouldn't do it, I'd be a hypocrite. But I can't do what God's already done. I can only... What if He was standing here tonight with this suit on that He gave me? You'd say, "Lord, will You heal me?"
You know what He'd say? "My child, I've already done that. I can't do it twice. I've just done it once. You must believe it."
But then He might show--show you something to prove that He was the Messiah. Now, not by nail prints, 'cause anybody could have nail prints in their hands. But He'd do the same sign that He did the first time, as he promised He would do. He'd never go beyond His promises. What He promised, He will do.
L-81 Now, here's a woman. We're strangers to one another. All right, you've read my books. She said she'd read my books, and she thought she almost knowed me by reading my books. All right. Then, my sister, I have a mother at home tonight. She's praying for me. I didn't come down here to be a deceiver; I come here to be a brother. I didn't come to takes the doctor's place; I come to help his patients to get well. I never come representing any certain church, just the Lord Jesus Christ.
Now, this is the first time, as far as I know, we've ever met. Then if I would come you'd... Now, perhaps, if you're in the prayer line, you'd be sick, and if I'd say, want to put my hands on you, say, "Receive your healing in the Name of the Lord Jesus. Go, believe," you'd have a right to do that. That's true. That's right.
But now, what if He would come here and tell you something that you have done, or like He did the woman at the well: talked to her and revealed to her what--what her trouble was? Then you'd know that it wasn't me, wouldn't you? 'Cause I don't know you. I've never... Here's my hands. I--I hold my hands to God over His Bible; I never seen her in my life. I know nothing about her. And that's true. I don't know one person in that prayer line, or nowhere out there as I can see, but those that I called the name of.
L-82 But now, Christ remains the same, doesn't He? How, if He will... If this woman... Let her be the judge, if you all know her here at the church or wherever she's from... If--if she... If He can tell her what she has been, and what--something is wrong with her, or what she's here for... It may be domestic, finance; I--I don't know. But if He can reveal that, will that make Him the same yesterday, today, and forever? How many will believe that? Now, raise up your hand, say, "I'll love Him, and believe Him." Thank you. Almost one hundred percent... See?
Now, if you do not believe it, better be quiet, 'cause you know what happens. Lots of time afflictions goes from one to another. It's got to find a place. Remember in the Bible? See, it'll go from one to another. Oh, I've seen so much done like that. So just as a brother, I say if you don't believe it, better just set reverently, and keep your head down till it's over. [Hebrews 13:8]
L-83 Now, the words that I've spoke of Jesus Christ now has to be manifested, or either I've told a lie, or His Bible's told something that's wrong. Now, if anybody don't believe it, wants to take my place, your welcome to come up here and take it.
But as long as God made a promise, He keeps His promise. And when the Angel of the Lord met me up there fourteen years ago, and told me these things I was born to do, and knowed it all my life... And the Baptist brethren tried to tell me it was the devil and everything. Then come to find out, it was the very God of heaven trying to get to me. I've believed it ever since.
It's alarmed the world. I've seen literally millions come to Christ around the world. Now, here it is in Tucson for the first time. Here it is in the Bible. Here's the promise; but will it work? It'll work when He works it, and that's all.
L-84 Now, if the Lord reveals to me what's wrong with the woman, how many in here's going to accept Him as your Healer? And here with both of us with our hands up, we've never met before in life. She said she'd read my books, so she has some idea of what would take place if He would do it. Now, whether He will or not, remember I don't know. If He doesn't do it, then I'll just simply go down the prayer line praying for the sick, and let it go at that. That's all I could do. But He's never failed me. I don't believe He will tonight.
I want to talk to you just a minute, being that you're the first person, like our Lord did the woman at the well. He was trying to contact her spirit. Very beautiful, to be a woman, the first one in the prayer line, just got through that at Saint John 4. Now, I can just see Him setting there, and see that woman come out to get water, and He begin to question her.
I believe... Now, you'll--you'll just have to almost take my word for that. I believe He was trying to contact her spirit. The Father had sent Him up there; He had need go by. And He said He did nothing till the Father showed Him, so the Father had to show Him first. After while He found out where her trouble was, and He told her what her trouble was.
And she said. "Well, that's the sign of the Messiah. I know when He comes, He will tell us all things. So You must be a prophet."
He said, "I'm He." And she went and told the city. [John 4:4, 19, 25], [John 8:28]
L-85 Would that be your attitude towards it, knowing that me being your brother, and don't know you, never seen you in my life? And we're born probably miles apart, and years apart, and here's our first time meeting. And if He will reveal to me what your trouble is, will you accept Him as Messiah? You--you will? You do.
The woman's shadowed to death. There's a dark shadow hangs over her, and she's suffering with cancer. That is right. If that's right, raise up your hand. Now, do you believe it?
Now, I feel that coming to me again, "He guessed that." Don't think that. You can't hide yourself now. He's here. See? It's already anointed now. I never guessed that. Well, wait a minute, let's put a stop to that now.
L-86 You're a fine person. I don't know what He told you. The only thing He told you, I have to find on this tape here and see what He said. It's just like going back down through the stream of life somewhere and find it. Now, I see it coming again. Yes, it's a shadow; it's darkness. It's a cancer. Now, if I'll tell you where that cancer is, will you believe me to be His prophet? It's on both breasts. If that's right, raise up your hand.
Another thing to that, your doctor told you it's going into the spine also. That's right--working into the spine...?... If the Lord Jesus will tell me who you are, will that make Him the same God Who could sit...? Is that right? Miss Hall, that's right. You're not from here. You're from cold country, real cold and full of mountains. It's Colorado. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD. Do you believe on Him with all of your heart? Return, and be healed in the Name of Jesus Christ then. May His blessings and mercies rest upon you, and give you the...?... God bless you.
L-87 Do you believe? Have faith. Have faith now. Now, are you convinced that He is the same Messiah? No, not me; it's Him.
Now, don't--don't move around, folks. See, you're each one a spirit, and every time you move, it just bothers me terribly. See? Set still. Set real still. Be quiet. Watch this a way. Just don't move. See? Each one of you is a spirit and that anointing comes, it's just--just like a stream. See? And I'm in contact with you, and you're in contact with God. As you contact God, He just speaks His Word.
This microphone is a--is a mute. It's got to have something to speak into it. So am I, just a mute on these things. It's got to have something to speak in. So each one when you move, or go around, or do something... See? Jesus took a man outside the city one time to get... See, just be real reverent. Watch. Now, if you want to praise God, that's all right; but don't get up and walk around, you know, and things like that. It--it interferes. The Holy Spirit's very timid, real timid. 'Course, you didn't know it, maybe, till now, but be real reverent.
L-88 Now, where's the next person? How do you do? I'm not beside myself, but it's the anointing. You're a mighty young person. Do you believe me to be God's servant? That's what the Angel said: "If you can get the people to believe you and then be sincere when you pray..."
Now, you're just a young woman, and I never seen you in my--my life, I guess we're strangers. I suppose you're Spanish. You... but I don't know you, and you don't know me. And we're setting again tonight just like it was in Saint John 4 again: a woman. I don't know nothing about you. We're two nationalities of people. And you're just a girl, and I'm a middle-aged man. But we meet for the first time. But if God of heaven Who sent His Son, Christ Jesus, and raised Him up from the dead, and sent back the Holy Spirit in His Name, and promised, "The works that I do, shall you also..." Do you believe now that you're standing in His Presence, not mine?
You got an odd feeling, because that Light's settling right over the girl. See? I want you to say this to the audience if this is right. A real sweet humble feeling is around you. If that's right, raise up your hand so the audience can see. I'm looking right at that Light around the--the girl.
You're not here for yourself. It's not your condition. You're here for someone else. That person's a dying. That person has cancer, and the cancer is in the glands, and I believe the doctor just announced it's a leukemia, he calls it, in the blood stream. That is right. The man isn't here--from New Mexico, your brother-in-law. That is right, isn't it? Believe now. Have faith that he will be healed. According to your faith so will it be. Go and God's peace rest upon you, my child. Father God, bless her request I pray, in Jesus' Name. Amen. [John 14:12]
L-89 Believe now with all your heart. Just have faith. Do you doubt anything? Don't doubt. Believe with all your heart. Don't take a picture just now, now. It's--it's a Light. I have to follow that Light. See? All right, here's a young lady standing here. I don't know her. I've never seen her in my life. We're strangers one... She don't speak English. That's right. I... Can you--somebody here can interpret, can you--you come here? Thank you. Just stand here. Just... [] what I say now, 'cause it has to go under anointing. You see? Now, the lady doesn't speak English, so this young woman is going to interpret for me.
Now, here's a woman I do not know. I don't even speak her language. [The woman begins interpreting what Brother Branham is saying--Ed.] I am a stranger to you. If God will reveal to me what you're here for, will you believe Him? Will you believe me as His servant? Then I am His servant, and then He will reveal to me what you're here for, then you know it'll have to be Him, and not me. You are not here for yourself. You're here for your baby. If that is right, raise up your hand.
If God will reveal to me what's wrong with your baby, will you accept its healing? The baby's bothered with an allergy, the doctor said. Allergy... If that's right, wave your hand like this, so they can see. You believe? He did have it. He hasn't got it now. It's left it. See, she don't know it...?... Let her find that out. See? She's a fine person. (Don't interpret that.)
L-90 Here it comes again. Here she comes back before me. Speak now, see what... You got someone else on your heart. You're praying for someone. Do you believe that God still knows the secret of the heart? The--the Bible said the Word of God is sharper than a two-edged sword, discerning the thoughts of the heart. That is right.
You're praying for your mother. If that's right, raise up your hand. Your mother... You believe that God can tell me what's wrong with your mother? She has a lady's trouble called female trouble. If that's right, wave your hand. You want me to tell you where she's at? She's not here. She's in Tijuana. It's all over. He has healed. Go, believe Him now in the Name of the Lord Jesus...?... [Hebrews 4:12]
L-91 Let us say, "Praise the Lord," everyone. Have faith. Don't doubt. "Sirs, we would see Jesus."
Just a minute. Where's that little girl? Come here. That man with his hand up, setting back here, right here on the end of this bench, right up here on the end. He doesn't speak English, but he's praying. He's praying for a loved one, a sister. (Stay there. Let him come. Now, tell him to stand right there.)
Do you believe me to be His servant? If I will reveal to you what you're praying about, will you believe on the Lord Jesus? Have you a prayer card? Don't have a prayer card? You don't need one. (Tell him he don't need it. No, not necessary.) Look on me. Look here. You have a good faith. You don't need a prayer card. You touched His garment.
You were praying for someone real sick: your sister. That's right. You believe God can tell me what's her trouble? She has TB. That's right. If that's right, wave your hand. Down in Nogales... Wave your hand. that... Send her word that Jesus Christ makes her well...?...
You believe with all your heart now? God bless you. I challenge any... What did he touch? What did he touch? [John 12:21]
L-92 That man that was trying to help that other man there, sir, you did God a favor. You helped. You was trying... Yes, trying to tell you... You don't have to come; stand right there. You speak English. You have a prayer card? You don't have it. All right, if you'll believe with all your heart, that hernia will leave you. You can go home and be well.
"Sirs, we would see Jesus." Well, don't you know He's here? Don't you know that's Him? Have faith in God. "If thou canst believe, all things are possible." [Mark 9:23]
L-93 We are strangers to each other. I do not know you, and you do not know me, but God knows us both. Now, have faith. Don't doubt. Believe. If you'll believe, all things are possible. I never seen you in my life, but God knows you. And if He can reveal to me something that you have done, or something that you're wanting, or something you're desiring, or so forth... You believe me to be His prophet, or I mean His servant? The word "prophet" stumbles the people a lot of times (You see?), so I don't say it.
Does the Bible...? Do you read the Bible much? The Bible says, that the Word of God is sharper than any two-edged sword, and cutting to asunder, even to the marrow of the bone, and a discerner of the thoughts of the heart. Is that right? What is the Word? "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us." So therefore it's Jesus Christ in us, discerning the thoughts of the heart, the Word made flesh among us tonight. A sinner saved by grace... []... God of heaven interpreting the very thoughts of your heart, and healing the sick. [Hebrews 4:12], [John 1:1, 14]
L-94 You're seriously sick. You have an ulcerated stomach. That is right. Raise up your hand. That is true. (There's so many of them out there in the audience, it's just scattering everywhere.) It's caused from a nervous condition. Just let me show you something. Let us see how you... Everyone out there suffering with a nervous condition, raise your hands. Be honest. How am I going to call them (See?) right there? See, it's just coming like a big wave now, everywhere. Oh, our Lord Jesus...
You've got a ulcerated stomach, and you've got also a heart trouble. The doctor give you some medicine to take, but you can't take it. It makes a fluid in you, and you can't take your medicine. You're not from here. You come from another cold country. You're from the state of Ohio, a city called Youngstown. Your name is Mrs. Mink. You've got a husband's got diabetes. Go, believing, and the Lord Jesus will make you well.
L-95 You believing, all your heart? That ought to be convincing. If you don't believe now, you never will. See? If you believe with all your heart right now, you can accept...
Now, don't--don't that. See? You're moving around. That just tears... I'll just have to stop. See? That's... Well, first thing you know my son will be beating me on the side, and that means go. See? Be reverent. Just be quiet just for one more, will you? Then we'll just ask them to lay their hands on one another. When you get up like that (See?), it grieves the Holy Spirit, and I get--gets away from me and I--I can't control it. See? 'Cause He grieves, and He leaves me. See?
You must... If you believe me, you'll do what I tell you to do. Not obey me; you're obeying Him through my voice, when I'm talking to you. When you get up and move around like that, you just interrupt awfully. See? And it's hard to hold the Presence of the Holy Spirit. You don't believe, then you just get up and walk around and move. It hurts. See?
L-96 That lady there bothered with your arms and shoulders. I never seen you in my life, lady, setting right here with a handkerchief up to her face. See? Just have faith in God. You got a relative or a loved one that's bothered in their legs. It's your brother-in-law. Have faith and don't doubt.
I'm a stranger to you, sir. This... God knows us both. Now, when the... As far as I can remember, you're the first man that's been here on the platform tonight, as far as I know. I think there's some more out through the audience, but the first one that I know of. Now, if the Lord Jesus will perform the same things like He did when Simon came to Him, and tell me your trouble or what you're here for, you believe me as His servant? Will this convince all the men, as same as the women did?
Now, see, those people out there doesn't have prayer cards. See, it doesn't matter. Just touch Him. Just say, "Lord, let it be me." That lady setting right there, said the same thing just then, bothered with liver trouble. It left you. That kind of striped dress, heavy-set woman, you've been bothered with liver trouble, haven't you? You said, "Lord, let it be me." Raise up your hand now if that's so. All right. It's over. What did she touch? See how far she is from me? Thirty or forty feet. But she believed. I seen that torpid liver just go down like that. It's all right. Believe you're going to get well now.
L-97 Sorry, sir. I just have to follow the way the Spirit leads. You see? I just... You're suffering with stomach trouble. That's right. Hemorrhoids... Got some things you're trying to lay down and quit: a habit. That's what makes your stomach trouble. You've been healed before of a cancer. Stop smoking cigarettes. Be a good boy, believe on the Lord Jesus. Say, I see a woman standing by you. It's your wife. She's up for an operation, a female condition. You're not from this city. You're from Phoenix. You believe God can tell me who you are? Would you believe with all your heart? Mr. Sparrow, return to Phoenix and be made well in the Name of Jesus Christ...?...
L-98 You believe with all your heart everyone? Well, that's--that's good enough then. That's all you need. If you'll believe God, you'll never have arthritis no more. Go, believing with all your heart and be made well.
If you believe God, the heart trouble will leave you. Go, believe with all your heart, and believe it. You believe out there, each one of you? Just have faith. That's all you have to do.
Now, lady, when you got up there awhile ago, was all mixed up, that back trouble's going to leave you, if you'll believe. Go on and be made well and believe. Just have faith, and say, "God, I believe with all my heart."
You'd die if that cancer isn't healed, but if God could heal cancer on one, He can heal it on another. You believe it? All right, then you go and believe with all your heart, and God will certainly do it. Amen.
L-99 How do you do, honey? You believe? Come here. I think you're one of the prettiest little girls I ever seen, about like my... I got a little girl at home: Sarah. Now, look. Jesus loves all little girls. You believe that? Now, if Jesus was here, He'd say... He said, "Suffer little children to come to Me. Forbid them not." And He'd lay His hands upon you, and you'd get well. You believe that, don't you? Sure, He would.
Now, Jesus is at the right hand of God in heaven, but He sends His servants back to do it. So now, the servant... He said, "If this servant says that I sent him, and he don't do My works, then he's wrong. But if he does the works, that means I sent him."
Now, Jesus come to heal you. Now, if He will tell me what's your trouble, would you believe Him and go home and be well? Then you won't cough any more, and you don't have to take any more Asthmadore. The old asthma will leave you in the Name of the Lord Jesus. Amen. Have faith. [Mark 10:14], [Luke 16:18]
L-100 Come, lady. Do you believe with all your heart? You believe if God will tell me what's wrong with you, you'll accept it for your healing? Then that lady's trouble, female trouble, you've been having, go, believe, and it'll leave you. Amen.
Come, lady. Been a long time since you've been able to eat, and eat right. Your stomach's bothered you. Go, eat now. Jesus Christ makes you well. Have faith...?... God bless you.
You're out here for that asthma, thinking it would leave you. But God's a Healer. He's everywhere, so just go and believe it. That's it.
L-101 You believe with all your heart? Wave. If thou canst believe, all things are possible. Have faith in God. Something happened, I can't--can't catch it. Setting there with that white jacket on, there it is. I could see that jacket, but I couldn't tell where it was at. All right, that gallbladder trouble will leave you now. All right. You can go home, be made well.
Right down here for epilepsy. You believe God will heal epilepsy? There's another one setting back there: that young fellow with the blue-looking suit on, with his hand up. You believe God will heal epilepsy, brother? Rise up and accept your healing. Believe that Jesus... What did you touch, thirty yards from me? [Mark 9:23]
L-102 Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is here. Do you believe that? How could I do that? I'm your brother. How many of you is believers? Raise up your hands. All right. Does Jesus say this, the last commission to the church, "Go into all the world, and these signs shall follow them that believe?" Did He say it? Are you a believer? What did He say? "They'll lay their hands on the sick and they shall recover." Is that right?
Then lay your hands on one another right now, and they'll--it'll--you'll just go right, and every one of you be healed. Put your hands over on one another, wherever you are. Lay your hands on one another. Up in the balcony, do the same. Put your hands on one another. There you are. Now, don't you pray for yourself; the other person's praying for you. You--you pray for him or her. Now, the Bible said, "These signs shall follow them that believe. If they lay their hands on the sick, they shall recover." Now, according to the way you do at your church, say, "God, heal this person. Make them well." [Luke 16:15-18]
L-103 Heavenly Father, I bring to You in the power of the resurrection of Your Son Jesus Christ, this audience. I condemn the devil. I condemn unbelief. I cast out the evil one. Come out, Satan. You've lost the battle. You've been exposed here tonight before these people, to show that you cannot stand. Your kingdom is gone. It's crumbling. Jesus Christ is coming, and His Presence is here tonight to manifest His power. I charge thee, in the Name of Jesus, come out of this people and leave them go.
Every man and woman in the building that can now believe that you're healed, stand up on your feet and accept your healing. I pronounce you healed in the Name of Jesus Christ. Raise up and give Him praise.

61-0207 - First Assembly Of God Of Long Beach, Long Beach, CA (Paragraphs: 71 - 77)
L-72 Now, let's while we sing again, shake hands with somebody in front of you, in back of you. We're not dismissed yet, now just shake hands while we sing. Shake hands with the Methodists, with the Baptists, with the Oneness, with the Twoness, and with the Church of God, and Assemblies of God, and the Foursquare. We're all Foursquare. Let's--let's draw our lines beyond any denominational barrier and be brothers. I see setting in here tonight, I recognize some, a Catholic friend. I see another one, a Dunkard brother, a Amish brother, and like that setting here tonight. We're all one, by one Spirit we're all made to drink from one fountain.
I love Him, I love Him
Because He first loved me
And purchased my salvation
On Calvary's tree.
L-73 Now, sometimes the words cut real deep and hard. But remember (See?), we're circumcised; that's cutting the knots off. See? We're circumcised by the Word of God. And the--it cuts, but it's good for you, shapes you out. Cut a tree back, and it'll bear better. Don't let too many loose ends get run out on it. That's what's the matter today; we got too many loose ends, running out this a way and this a way, too many societies, and too many of this, and too much of that. Let's come back to one thing, Calvary, where we can sing with our heart. And humbler you make yourself...
L-74 I--I just keep--I'm trying to dodge a issue here. I'm going to say it. My last meeting at Tucson, Arizona, three or four nights ago. I seen the white people come in there, starchy, Pentecostal, starchy as they could be. I seen some poor old Mexican comes in there. They was there that morning when I spoke at the morning service. They set right in that church all day long, from nine o'clock that morning un--well, it was eight o'clock, about seven o'clock I guess, or eight, when they come in. And they set and stayed right around in that church until that evening. And when it come time, when the Holy Spirit dropped in among the building, who got healed? Spanish, the Mexicans. The Holy Spirit going right out through the audience and raising up the sick and afflicted and everything like that, bringing...?... Spanish, humble. Come expecting it. Nothing of the world, just looking to Christ.
L-75 I was in Germany just recently. Brother Arganbright, one of your California brethren here, the Christian Business Men, I believe he's secretary, or something, or treasurer, something or another in the Christian Business Men, one of their executives. A real fine brother, he's not here tonight, or he'd be on the platform. Miner Arganbright is gun barrel straight. He's a fine man. You can put your trust in Miner Arganbright as a Christian. I've been with him in all kinds of meetings. He was setting there that night when fifteen witch doctors on each side, trying to blow the thing away, and seen there the storm lifting around thirty or forty thousand people, that tent shaking, them witch doctors cutting that feather, and pointing it towards me, with them scissors and going through there and chanting and said they'd call the storm. They did it. Don't you never undermes--estimate them. So they called the storm, said, "We'll blow it away." And that great big place moving up and down like that.
I said, "Brother Arganbright, pray." I said, "Brother Rauster, don't interpret this." I said, "Lord God, I stepped off that plane the other day in the Name of the Lord Jesus. You told me You'd stand by me in the hour of trouble. You've never failed me yet. Therefore, Lord, this crowd's all excited; there's hundreds and thousands of communists setting here, and that little blind girl has just been healed." I said, "It's you, God, You can move that cloud, so I rebuke that cloud." God being my judge, right in the middle of the tent she begin to break and roll away like this, and in less than a minute the sun was shining. The thunder roaring out like that, standing there, yes.
L-76 And I noticed the Swiss. The Swiss never had no trouble. They're like Americans, fine fed, and my, just as cocky, if you'll express--excuse the expression. "We're so and so; we're the Zwinglites; we're--we're Lutheran; we don't have to listen to that stuff." And them poor old Germans all beat down. We counted a hundred and eighty bus loads, them big glass top bus loads, come in to where there's about fifty thousand gathered together there in the big arena. And when... What happened? When the Holy Spirit begin to fall, everyone out there was the Germans that He called. Left them setting right where they was setting, still in their sickness, still in their sin. Set right there. And healed the Germans, that come with expectations and arms out. They'd been beat down to a place, them Christians up there under Hitler and them, had been beat to a place till they had to look to God for mercy. Oh, God knows how to do things.
Friends, watch, don't let it be you. You come with expectations; be ready. Lay aside every little weight that so easily beset you, and come humble in heart, expecting God to keep His Word. He will do it.
I love him, (Let's just close your eyes now and raise up our hand.) I love Him
Because He first loved me
And purchased my salvation
On Calvary's tree.
I... (Thank you, Lord)... love Him
Because... (Just close your eyes and imagine what He done for you. By faith lay your hands upon His Bloody locks. Feel His pains, His agony.)
Purchased my salvation
On Calvary's tree. (Let us stand now to our feet.)
I love Him, I... (Worship Him now; just raise up your hands; let's worship Him.)
Because He first loved me
And purchased my salvation
On Calvary's...
L-77 Let's hum it to Him. Look yonder at Calvary. The winds are blowing. His back's sticking to the cross, Blood and spit over His face.
I go by faith, Lord, I look at that nail in Your feet and in Your hands. I put my hands upon that thrust in Your side. I--I feel the tear of the nails. You died that I might live, Lord. Let me lose myself, Lord. Let me lose all of my pride and all the foolishness in my life. Let me feel it in my heart tonight, Lord. Let this church feel it in their heart. "Purchased my salvation on Calvary." You are the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world. And I'm the one that's sinful. Take away my sins. O Lamb of God, I come. I come confessing my wrongs. I come confessing my errors. And I confess that I'm not worthy to live, but, Lord, let me live for Him that died for me. Let me forsake all the things of the world that I might be found in Him a true servant. Bless this church, Father, as we hum this song to You in grateful hearts, singing it from our hearts. You said, "Making melody in our heart of the gladness," because the oil of God's gladness is poured out in our souls.
I love Him, (Now, just worship in your heart.) I love Him

61-0208 - First Assembly Of God Of Long Beach, Long Beach, CA (Paragraphs: 86 - 108)
L-87 Now, if you'll just bear with us just a few... []
When did you ever see it fail? It don't fail, because it's God. It can't fail. God has sent that. And it's just as real to me as it is to you to take a drink of water. See? I'm just as confident that God will move on the scene as I am standing of this platform tonight, because it's His promise. And if He will do that, then that will show that He is the same Messiah coming back. Now, who to? Not to the outside, the big organizations and things, but to the elect (See?), to the church. See what I mean? His own. You say, "Why don't you have a great big television program?"
He sent to His own, the elected, the called-out, not the flowerly...
Jesus didn't have showmanship. He wasn't a showman. He--He... They said, "Why don't you get away from that bunch down there on the river? You're fooling with just a bunch of holy-rollers-like," you know. "Come up here and show Caiaphas what you can do." He never done it. See? He was kept humbly, quietly.
He came to His own. He made Hisself known to His own, before the Jews, them who refused Him, they went on to eternity. Those who received Him and believed it, their name's immortal, and will be forever. That's right.
L-88 Now, I am not Him. I'm just your brother. I am your brother, a servant of Jesus Christ, sent here with my brethren, and with you people here, to--with a gift that manifests. And if I had time to take it through the Bible this week, and prove to you by Scripture after Scripture, infallible proofs that this is the hour of it... Don't let it go past you. See?
L-89 Here's a girl. I never seen her in my life, lovely young woman. She might be a Christian; she might not. She might be--she might be sick; she might not. She might have financial troubles, domestic troubles. I never seen her in my life. But here's a perfect view of what I was talking about.
Here's a little panoramic tonight. Here's a man and here's a woman, meeting for the first time. She just raised her hand, she didn't know me, and here's my hands I never seen her in my life. See? And she said I was a stranger to you. Is that right, lady? Here we are.
Now, "Sirs, we would see Jesus." What would He do if He appeared on the scene? Just like He did the day at the well, the Samaritan woman. Is that right?
Now, what can He do? Is anoint me and anoint her. If He doesn't do it, I can't say one thing. This is a deaf mute [Brother Branham taps on the microphone--Ed.] until something speaks in it. So am I. I don't know her. She don't know me. So how--how am I going to know anything about her? [John 12:21], [John 4:7]
L-90 Now, what if I'd say, "Lady, are you sick?"
She'd say, "Yes, Mr. Branham, I am sick."
"Glory to God. Hallelujah!" Shake her, say, "Glory to God. Receive it. Hallelujah. Go on. You're healed." That could be all right. Sure, that'd be fine. She'd believe it, she'd get well. Certainly.
Just like what Charlie Fuller said down here one time, Brother Fuller. He said, "I believe in these gifts, and I believe in these great gifts of healing too" But said, "They're gifts of healing, but God's going to make them men answer at the judgment bar for commercializing it." And I believe so too. He's right there. Yes, sir. Don't commercialize God. He can't be commercialized. But God will make you pay for what you're doing, the way you use it.
L-91 Now, lady, I'm a stranger. Somebody... She's got a prayer card in her hand. Somebody get it. Come here. Oh, oh, it's not... I see. It's some--something else there. I thought it was a prayer card. Excuse me. Oh, she's... It's for... got somebody else's card. All right.
Now, if Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever... Now, I've pictured to you the Bible, Pentecostal church. I mean this here. I've pictured to you the Bible and what Jesus was yesterday. Now, He said that in this last day He would come down in human flesh, like He did at Sodom, and would do the same thing. Now, if He will return and do just like He did to the Samaritans and to the Jews, will you believe Him to be the Messiah that's here in the building tonight? Raise your hands. If you say, "If He will do the same thing, I'll believe Him."
Well, this one case should settle it. If you're honest in your heart, it should settle it. [Hebrews 13:8]
L-92 Now, here we are both under oath that we know not one another. All right. Now, if God will reveal to me something that you have done, that you know I know nothing about, or something that you're planning on doing that I know nothing about, or something about you, what your trouble is, what your sickness is, what your affliction, or--or something another, something like that, then would you believe that it was Him? That would...
It'll have to come through some kind of power, and if you believe that it's His power, then you get His blessing. If you believe it's another power, well, that's between you and God. See? I wouldn't know what'd happen there.
Now, if He will do it, you will accept it, if He'd do it on the same fashion He did it in the Bible, like Him and that woman standing, talking? You'd believe it, will you, lady? And the church said they'd believe it. Now, now it's God's time to act. See?
L-93 Now, here we are, probably three or four hundred (three hundred people anyhow) setting in here tonight. All right. Look here, before three hundred people... Now, I've seen four or five hundred thousand in Bombay, India. (See?), two hundred seventy-five thousand in Durban, South Africa. It don't fail. It's God.
Now, if He can tell what you have been, surely He can--you'd believe. You'll know whether that's true or not. When He speaks, you'll know whether it's true.
Well, if it is, and He tells you what you have been, what about what you will be? You'd believe that easily, couldn't you, if He'd tell that? All right.
A young woman... Now, I've never seen her in my life. She's a lot younger than I, born years apart, perhaps miles apart, and our first time meeting. But now, I'm just talking to her in order to catch her spirit, just like our Lord did the woman at the well. And I perceive now that she is a believer, and you're suffering. You're wanting prayer for some kind of a skin disease you have. If that's right, raise up your hand. Do you believe?
L-94 Now, I keep... Every meeting I feel that. Somebody said, "He guessed that." Now, now, you can't hear your thoughts now. He's here. See? You say... Now, I--I did not guess that. Find out.
You seem to have a fine contact with the Spirit of God. Now, I don't know what I told you. That wasn't me. That was Him. It's on the recorder there. I could run that back and know what it was, but I don't know now.
But if you'll just believe me to be His prophet, or His servant (that name stumbles people), so, if you'll just believe with all your heart...
Yes, sir, it's a disease of the skin. That's what I told you. And here's another thing. You're having headaches, real bad headaches. And then, there's two children I see that you want prayed for. And the oldest one is suffering with a nerve condition. The younger one is suffering with something wrong with the hip. It's a tumor in the hip. If God will tell me who you are, would it make you believe now with all your heart? You know I don't know you, but Mrs. Bowman, you can go home. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and be made well. God bless you, my sister.
L-95 Do you believe? "Sirs, we would see Jesus." Now, just have faith. Now, here's a man. I never seen him in my life. He's perhaps a little older than I. We're strangers to each other; and I don't know you, and you don't know me. But if God can tell me something.
Now, be real quiet. Don't nobody move around. See, you're spirits. You see, each one of you is a spirit. You know that? This is my hand, as I said last night, this is my hand; this is my finger; this is my ear; this is my nose, my eyes. But who is me? See, that's something that belongs to me. I'm the spirit.
You're here for somebody else. You're not for yourself. The person that you're here for is very seriously ill. They have death shadow over them. It's a cancer. They're not here. They're in Phoenix, Arizona. Go, believe, and they'll get well. All right. As thou hast believed, so be it unto you. God bless you. Just have faith. Don't doubt. [John 12:21]
L-96 You believe? What about you setting there, lady in the chair? Just thrilled you, something did, right there, didn't it? This lady setting here with her coat, laying with her hand up, looking at me like that. Yeah, right here on the end. You believe that high blood pressure will leave you and you'll be all right? All right, then. Just go ahead. You can be made well.
What did she touch? She's thirty feet away from me. She touched the High Priest that can be touched by the feeling of our infirmity. That's Him. [Hebrews 4:15]
L-97 We are strangers to each other, sir. I don't know you. You don't--perhaps don't know me, unless it's just by name, or set in the meetings somewhere and seen me. It's a... But to know each other, we do not know each other. We're strangers to one another.
Now, if the Lord Jesus will reveal to me something about you that you know that I do not know, will you believe Him as the Messiah? Not me, but Him working through me. I just... A gift just to submit myself to His Spirit, and I'm out of the way and He does the talking. See? Well, if He will tell you, you'll know whether it's truth or not, won't it? You're suffering... something wrong with the veins. It's varicose veins. That's exactly right.
But I see a woman up here, somebody you're praying for. It's your sister. She has a mental break, and you're praying for her. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD. If that's true, raise your hand. Believe on the Lord Jesus now? Go, receive what you've asked for. In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ grant it.
L-98 How do you do? Excuse me. I wasn't by--beside myself; I was watching the Light. I wasn't sure. I see where It stopped, but I wasn't sure what--what taken place. You see? See, I--I just have to follow It. See, I...
Now, you're ready for an operation. But do you believe that God could heal you of that? You have three growths in three different places. If I will explain them to you will it help you? One of them's in the throat, one of them's in the female gland, and the other one's under your right arm. Mrs. Macintosh (That's your name.), go home and believe the Lord Jesus Christ and be made well. In the Name of the Lord Jesus.
L-99 You believe? "Sirs, we would see Jesus." Well, that's Him, that feeling. Now, don't that confirm that the Pentecostal church who feels that blessing, that's the Lord Jesus. You see? He's doing the same works. That's not me.
I don't know these people. God in heaven knows that. I don't know the people, but God does know them. If thou canst believe, all things are possible.
A woman's got her handkerchief up there. That Light's still over the woman. Is that the woman was on the platform just now, got her handkerchief up? Was you up here?
No, it's--it's right behind you. The lady right behind you with arthritis, setting over there on the end, believe on the... That's it, sister. Amen. You believe with all your heart? Do you believe that arthritis will leave you? You do? If you had arthritis, shake your hand like this so the people will know. You were setting there believing. That woman come with the anointing. Now, go home and be well. Jesus Christ heals you. What did she touch? [John 12:21], [Mark 9:23]
L-100 I don't know you. We are strangers to each other. If that's right, would you raise your hands with me?
Oh, if the people... If you would just believe, what would happen right now. There'd be a revival break out on this west coast and sweep around the world. If you could only realize what I'm looking at. I--I hope... Surely I've found favor in your sight before God. I'm telling you the truth, and God's vindicating it to be the truth. What God is desiring to do right here in this church tonight, it's remarkable. But I--I'm weakening. You see? Just look on my hand. See the perspiration? That's just... How many knows that that weakens you?
One woman touched His garment, and He said virtue went out of Him. And He was the Son of God. Now, I'm a sinner saved by grace. Daniel saw one vision; troubled him at his head for many days. See? Just believe. [Mark 5:28-30]
L-101 Now, this man, we're both... Say that we're strangers to one another, do not know each other. But God does know us. Now, if He can reveal to me something about you, that--that you know that I don't know, would it satisfy that you're... Would the rest of you, even in the prayer line, everywhere, believe with all your heart?
This Bible laying here, and this man and I standing here, we never met before in life: with our hands up, we've never met before. Now, Jesus said He perceived their thoughts. How many knows that? How many knows that the Bible said, "The Word of God is sharper than a two-edged sword. And it's also a discerner of the thoughts of the heart, the intents and thoughts of the heart and mind." Does the Bible say that?
The Word of God, well, what was the Word of God? Jesus. "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. And the Word was made flesh and dwelled among us." And here the Word is made manifest in our flesh. O God, surely you won't miss it, surely, surely. Believe. [Hebrews 4:12], [John 1:1, 14]
L-102 Just a gift, sir, trying to relax myself and catch your spirit. As odd as it might seem, I've seen them lay--people laying dead: Finland, three or four different places I've seen in my life--and God would let my spirit so leave me till it'd go out into the land, and catch that spirit, and bring it right back again to that person. It's true. God in heaven knows it's true. See? Now, being it's on you, and you're still under free moral agency, you'll have to act. And I couldn't do that unless it was a commandment of God showing me a vision.
Jesus said, "I do nothing except the Father shows Me."
Then you'd say, "Can He show you that I am well, or what..." He can show me what's your trouble, but you have to accept... your faith... I couldn't save you, neither could I heal you. It's already done. But He's here now to show that He's the same God that wrote the Word. See?
Now. Yes, you're very sick, fixing to go to the hospital tomorrow for TB. That's right. Do you believe me to be His prophet or His servant? You do? You believe you could--you're going to get well, and come home now, going to be all right? You believe it? If I'd tell you who you were, would that help you? All right. Walter Kaiser, go on, and believe it with all your heart. That's right. Believe with all your heart. Just have--have faith. [John 5:19]
L-103 Setting there, sir, with the gray suit on, had trouble with your lungs too... If you can believe... Yeah. See? You had lung trouble. I noticed that Light flash over you as soon as he was healed with that what he had there. He had lung trouble too of some sort. It went over you. Your faith finished it. Go home, be well. Your faith makes you whole.
Setting right back behind this woman, another one looking right through here at me right now, she had lung trouble. It's cancer, and in the spine also. Believe with all your heart. The little gray-headed lady, if that's true, raise up on your feet. Raise up on your feet. I'm a perfect stranger to you. If that's right, wave your hand. That's what was your trouble. All right. I take the authority. Do you believe this to be the truth? Then in the Name of Jesus Christ, I condemn that devil. Go and be well.
L-104 Do you believe that that heart trouble will leave and you'll be made well, and you'll go home, with all your heart? Then go, and believe with all your heart, and be made well.
Come. What do you think? Do you believe that asthma will leave you, and you can go home and quit coughing? Then go, believe it with all your heart, and be made well. If your not...
Come, sister. What you so nervous? You've been nervous for a long time. All right. You're healed. Now, go believe it with all your heart and be made well. All right, sir. That's what breaks you out.
All right, lady. Come. Do you believe with all your heart? Your back trouble's healed. Go, believe with all your heart, and say, "Thank You, Lord Jesus."
Nervous heart, do you believe that He heals it? Go, and say, "Thank You, Lord" and be healed. Just have faith. That's all you have to do.
Look here, lady, at me. You believe me to be His prophet? That lady's trouble you're having, female trouble (That's right.), go be healed in Jesus' Name.
L-105 Just a moment. Something went to the audience. Yes, a man setting right back here, suffering with back trouble, looking right at me. You believe, sir? All right. Receive your healing. Be made well in the Name of Jesus Christ. Have faith in God.
The woman setting behind the man there has got diabetes. Do you believe with all your heart? Raise up, the little gray-headed lady with glasses on. You touched something, didn't you? Rise up; be made well. Go home, and believe the Lord Jesus Christ. Have faith.
L-106 If I wouldn't say a thing to you, and just lay hands on you, would you get... You know--you believe that's the Holy Spirit? Come here and let me lay hands on you. Then in the Name of Jesus Christ be healed.
Now, come. Just show how they can do it. See? You know I know what's wrong with you. But if I don't say nothing, will it be all right, lay hands on you? You believe? This is anointing of some sort. Believe, and your heart trouble will go. (She wanted me to say that so bad.)
All right, come. In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, be healed, and go home; be well. Have faith now; don't doubt.
Young lady, awhile ago when I was preaching, you was setting right back there looking at me. You turned around, looked at a woman; a real odd feeling went over you. When you--while I was preaching, saying something about the Lord Jesus, especially in the day when I talked about Sodom, had a strange feeling. You remember that? That's when your female trouble was healed. Now, go home and be well.
L-107 You believe with all your heart? "Sirs, we would see Jesus." Is He the same yesterday, today, and forever? Raise your hands. Now, I want to ask you. How many of you is believers? Shake your hands like this. All right.
The Bible said this, "These signs shall follow them that believe." Do you believe that? If... This is what He said, "The works that I do shall you do also," then lay your hands on one another. Don't pray for yourself; pray for the person you got your hands on. Lay your hands on one another. "These signs shall follow them that believe."
Up in the balcony up there, that man setting there with prostate trouble, setting over on the left side. Believe with all your heart, sir. That's it. God heals you, makes you well. Believe. Put your hands on one another and pray for one another now. [John 12:21], [Hebrews 13:8], [Mark 16:17-18], [John 14:12]
L-108 Our heavenly Father, we now bring Satan to a showdown. He is a deceiver, and he's been exposed tonight by the power and the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Satan, you've lost the battle. Come out of this people. Leave. In the Name of Jesus Christ, come out of them.
I command every one of you that believes in Jesus Christ, and knows He keeps His Word, believes that that's His Spirit here now, if you believe it with all of your heart... A believer has had his hands laying on you, which the Bible said, Jesus said, "These signs shall follow them that believe." He's the same God that's here making Himself known that He is your Pentecostal Messiah.
Every one of you that will accept Him now as your Healer, no matter where you are, stand up on your feet and accept Him as your Healer. I pronounce you healed in the Name of Jesus Christ. Raise your hands to Him now and praise Him. Amen.
[Brother Branham speaks to the organist--Ed.] "I Will Praise Him, I Will Praise Him." Just praise Him.
I will praise Him,
Praise the Lamb for sinners slain;
Give Him glory all ye people...
[Mark 16:17]
