61-0218 - First Assembly Of God Of Long Beach, Long Beach, CA,
L-84 Now, you know I couldn't go down that line with discernment, I'd--I'd pass completely out 'fore I got halfway down it. Now, tomorrow night we're going to have discernment line down at the other place. Tonight we're going to pray for these people. How many of you in that line there are now solemnly, you see that how... I want to ask... You talk about a miracle, how would a man, a human being like me, know those things? I couldn't do it. How many of you believe that that's the very thing that our Lord Jesus did? You do? Well then, that anointing that I've told you about and preached to you the truth, now Jesus has come down and proved that's true. Is that right? Then He said, "These signs shall follow them that believe." Is that right? Now, that makes me a believer. Is that right? Now, what He said was to be a believer? "If they lay their hands on the sick, they shall recover." Is that right? Now, I want to show you something.
L-85 Pastors, evangelists, missionaries, how many of you all are believers? See? Now, I'm going to ask as many of you all that can, come right down here with me. See? I--I... Not let the evangelist have everything to do, the people... I don't want you to have your faith built into an evangelist. I want you to have your faith built in your own pastor. He's the man's going to lead from here out. See? And these men... Come down, some of you brothers. Come down here, let's form a double line. Yeah, a double line...
These men are men of God that believe. I'm going to stand right in the middle of them. And we're going to pray... How many out there's going to be praying for them too, out there? Put up your hand. Remember, there's somebody's mother, there's somebody's father, there's somebody's darling, somebody's child. Is that right? Well, what if it was you? What if it was your mother? What if it was your child? What if it was your sister, your wife, your husband? You'd want somebody be sincere, wouldn't you?
L-86 Now, we're going to pray, and all these men of God... Come right along here, brethren, if you would. Just come right down this way and form a double line. You know what? I'm going to tell you; it makes me proud in my heart and grateful to find servants of God that'll stand before the people and say, "I'm a witness of this Gospel too." Aren't you proud of your pastors? Say, "Praise the Lord" if you're proud of these pastors. [Congregation says, "Praise the Lord."--Ed.] We're proud of our brethren. Amen. We're proud of them. They are your pastors. A "pastor" means "a shepherd." These--each of these man has just as much of the anointing to lay hands on the sick as I do.
L-87 Now, I'm not a preacher. They're preachers. They've got a higher office than I have. Mine's a prophetic office, and it's to prophesy. Now, they're not--they wasn't built for that. They wasn't ordained for that. But what does the Bible say? "God has set in the church, apostles (that's missionaries), prophets, pastors, teachers, evangelists." Is that right? Them gifts ordained of God and anointed...
Now, I have no education; that's the reason I say I'm not a preacher. These men could take this Word, and they wouldn't have to use one of these gifts. They could just lay that Word out there so they'd tie Satan in such a knot he couldn't get out of it. See? But I can't do that; that's not my calling. They are called for that. Now, but they're--they're men of God. Every man that's called of God is commissioned to lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. How many believes that? Then how you going to fail from getting well passing through an arc like this?
L-88 Did you ever notice how Solomon built his temple? Listen close. When you entered into the door, what happened? There was angels carved out of olive wood with their wings tipping across, that every worshipper coming to the holy seat, come right down across the tips of these angel's wings, right down to the mercy seat, right down to the altar. You know the order of Solomon's temple.
Well, what is an angel? A messenger. Get the dictionary and find out what an "angel" means. Some of them's heavenly messengers, some of them's earthly messengers, that God dwells in to bring His earthly message. And these are messengers, angels of the Lord, messengers to you. And they're standing there with their hands out to obey what God says. "Lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover." It has to happen. Doesn't it? Do you believe that every one of you coming through?
Now, on the organ there, "Only Believe." Let's every person in here bow your head, and as these people walk through the line, we'll lay hands on them for their healing. Everybody praying... Every minister, touch them as they go by.
L-89 Our heavenly Father, we bring to You this great line of people. They're sick, Lord. I pray that You'll heal every one of them as they pass by under the anointing of these servants of Yours. May they go through this line and every one be completely healed. In Jesus' Name.
[Brother Branham and the ministers pray for the people. The words are not all distinguishable--Ed.]
Now, while they're standing, lay hands on one another. Put your hands over on one another now. Now, this is a time for you to... You believe me? [Mark 16:18]

61-0219 - Long Beach Municipal Auditorium, Long Beach, CA,
L-81 Oh, isn't He beautiful? Oh, don't we just love Him? Wonderful. Now, friends, I know I--I did keep you a little bit long, but this is Sunday night, there is just about fifteen more minutes or twenty. We're going to call a prayer line.
Now, how many believes that the Scripture teaches that Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever? How many knows that the Bible says that He is a High Priest that can be touched by the feeling of our infirmities? If He is the same yesterday... And how many believes that we're the--we're at the end of the Gentile age? How many Bible readers, with your hands up, will wave like this and pro--and believe that He promised that He would do the same things to the Gentile closing, that He did at the Jewish?
See, here's what it is. If God is ever called on the scene to make a decision, the way He makes it, He's eternal; it has to be the same every time when He's called again. So when He was called on the earth to come to the earth, to declare Himself the Messiah, to end up the Jewish and Samaritan age, He's got to do the same thing when He comes on after... The Jews had four thousand years; we've had two thousand years at the end of the age to come on the scene and do the same thing. Is that right? [Hebrews 13:8], [Hebrews 4:15]
L-82 Well now, if He's the same yesterday, today, and forever, He's got to be the same in principle, the same in power, the same in manifestation. Only thing is a corporal body; His body is at the right hand of God the Father in heaven setting on the throne. You believe that? A High Priest. And now, His Holy Spirit is here, which the Spirit was upon Christ, which is God, in human flesh, your flesh, my flesh, as the Blood cleanses us. He preaches the Gospel through the preacher, prophesies through the prophet, and reveals the secret hearts, speaks through tongues, interprets tongues, and everything's setting in order. You believe that? All right. [Hebrews 13:8]
L-83 All right, now let's call the prayer line. Now, now, he told me he give out prayer cards, but I say I don't know what and where. Oh, Billy, you're so little I always miss you. All right, 1 to a 100, J. All right. Number 1? Let's start. Who has J like in Jesus. J look at the--it's got a J and a number. J-number-1, who has it? Raise up your hand. You sure? All right. Come right over here, lady. Number 2, who has J-number-2? Would you raise your...
L-84 [Blank.spot.on.tape--Ed.]... my life. And she's a stranger to me, 'cause we just held our hands that we were strangers to one to another. Now, I don't know her, neither does she know me. But now she's here for some purpose. What is it? Is she sick? Maybe so. Maybe she's here for somebody else. Maybe it's domestic trouble. Maybe it's--it's financial trouble. Maybe it's something else; I don't know. See? I--I don't know. God does know.
Now, if she's come in here, ordinary like, in healing services, I'd lay my hand upon her and say, "God, heal the woman. I'm a believer. I ask it to be done so. Amen." Now, the woman have a right to go away and believe. If she believed that, that's the Word of God, lay hands on the sick. Is that right? She'd have a right to believe that. But now what if the Holy Spirit comes and reveals something to her that's down in her life, tells her what has been? And if He could tell her accurately what has been, surely she could believe what would be then. Is that right? Now, how many knows that that's what Jesus did, raise up your hand. That's what He promised. That's exactly.
L-85 Now, if He's here... Now, He's here in the form of the Holy Spirit. Now, this is a panoramic, just like the well was in Saint John 4: a beautiful picture again, a man and a woman, first time meeting in life, this lady and I, for the first time in life to meet. And now it's right here where we've never met before. Now, if Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever... Now, something would have to reveal what she's here for, and she'd know that true. Is that right, lady? Somebody would have to reveal it. Something would have to come and do it. Isn't that right? Well then, if It comes...
Now, she could say, "It's the devil." Then that's up to her. See? If she'd say it was Christ, there's only... It'd have to be spiritual power. If she says the devil then she'd get the devil's reward. She says Christ she gets Christ's reward. But if she'd say the devil and it was Christ, then what has she done? She's sealed herself forever from the Kingdom of God. Is that what Jesus said? When the Holy Ghost comes, speak a word against It, will never be forgiven, no matter who you are. You say, "But I preach the Gospel, Brother Branham." So did them priests. They were raised through generations of priests and had preached the Gospel and Jesus strictly told them. And they lost their lives. That's right. Just one way to God, that's all. That's the way of truth and light. [Hebrews 13:8], [Luke 12:10]
L-86 Now, if you could stand right out here. You don't have to stand--just stand right back out this way so that the people could see you and see me. Now, being...
Now, here's like the woman at the well. Now, I... She's not the woman, and I'm not the Lord Jesus. But His Spirit is here. And He'd know, can tell her... Now, if He would... Now, if we'd say, "Brother Branham, what did Jesus do there?" Well, the Bible said He had need go by Samaria. I don't know why. The Father sent Him up there because He said in Saint John 5--Saint John 5:19: "Verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing in Himself, but what He sees the Father doing." How many knows that Scripture? Jesus never performed one thing until God showed Him in a vision what to do. Is that right? Saint John 5:19: "Verily, verily (absolutely, absolutely), I say unto you, The Son can do nothing in Himself, but what He sees the Father doing: that doeth the Son likewise." [John 4:4], [John 5:19]
L-87 Now, then if this woman with her hand up, that she's a stranger to me, and I'm a stranger to her, then if the Holy Spirit, by His promise, is what I've taught you, will come here and will do the same thing that He did then, reveal the secret of the woman's heart, an--or do what it is, and tell her what--something about herself and let her be the judge whether it's right or not, how many in here will believe on the Lord Jesus Christ for your healing? Now, all around everywhere raise up your hands if you'll believe it. There's at least ninety-five percent. 'Course some wouldn't believe it no matter what He done. It ain't for unbelievers. It's just for believers. There was some standing in His crowd didn't believe. That won't hurt the believer. No, they've done--know it's true.
L-88 I have no more idea what you are here for than--than--than nothing. But God does know what you're here for. If He will reveal it to me, then you'll know whether it's the truth or not, whatever He does. Now, yes, if the audience can still hear my voice, the Light that you see in the picture is standing between me and the woman. She's moving away from me. Kind of a jerking, glimmering Light... Yes, I see, she--her examination shows that she's got a swelling stomach, a stomach, got a bad stomach, swelling. If that's right, raise up your hand. You believe?
Now, you said you'd believe if He would reveal it. Do you now believe? Then her--it's... Now, I don't know what I told her, 'cause it wasn't me that told her. It's just yielding yourself to the Spirit. Now, I keep feeling that in every meeting. Somebody say, "He guessed it, he guessed it." You don't guess these things. All right, see if it was a guess.
L-89 Seem to be a nice person. You are a Christian; I can feel your Spirit (See?); you're welcome. Same thing that Jesus said to Nathanael, a Israelite. Now, let's see if ever what... Yes, I see it coming again. It was a stomach condition. Swelling stomach, he said. That's right. That's what the doctor said, swelling stomach. And then here's another thing, that you got some kind of a rectal trouble. That's right. And you--you think it's some kind of an allergy like, or some kind of a itching sensation. That is true. And there's no cure for it. That's right. But there is in Christ. If God will tell me what I see your name on that paper there, he's got before me, I see him standing there, will you believe me to be His prophet? Miss Martin, you'll be all right now. It's over now. You can go home and be made well.
Now, critic, what about that? Now, you believer out there, believe with all your heart now. Just have faith. Don't doubt; believe with all your heart. Now, keep real--just keep your positions; set still.
I never seen the woman. See, I never healed her. God healed her. How did He heal her? Her own faith did it. The healing's already completed at Calvary. Your salvation was completed at Calvary. How do you know that? Is that right? All you have to do is accept it. [John 1:47]
L-90 Now, here's another lady. And we were--our first time--we are strangers to one another. God knows us both though, doesn't He? Well then, if the Lord Jesus will reveal to me something that--that I... 'Course you see me getting--looking like that. That's just 'cause it's got--made me weak, vision. See, the audience knows it, anyone knows. Jesus--a woman touched His garment, and He said, He got... Virtue went; virtue is strength, you know that. And Daniel saw one vision; he was troubled at his head many days. Well then, if--if Jesus being the Son of God, if one woman touched Him, well, what would it do me (See?), me, a sinner saved by grace. Because He said, "The things that I do shall you also; more than this shall you do." The King James says greater, but get--the regular translation says more. See? More could you do at this...?... [Mark 5:30], [John 14:12]
L-91 Now, if the Holy Spirit will reveal to me what's your trouble, or something, as He did the other ones that went by, would you believe with all your heart? Would it cause the audience to believe with all their heart? See, God doesn't do this for show. He does this because He promised He would do it, and for His glory. See? And I'm telling you; it's not me; I don't know one thing; I'm holding my hand here before God and this Bible here. This woman's a stranger to me. All of you are strangers, far as I know. But if God will reveal to me by the Holy Spirit... Now, the Bible said, "The Word of God is sharper than a two-edged sword, even a discerner of the thoughts of the heart."
Now, Jesus, when He was here on earth, He was the Word, wasn't He? That's the reason He could discern the thoughts, perceive, so forth. He was--He was a God prophet. That's the reason the prophets... How could they discern? Because they were the Word of God. The Word of God came to the prophet. Is that right, audience? See? Now, if the Word of God still comes, then the Word of God can... Hebrews says "The Word of God is a discerner of the thoughts." His Word, His promise come into human flesh, makes it a discerner of the thoughts of the heart. [Hebrews 4:12]
L-92 Now, you're not here for yourself: someone else you're here for, your husband. That's right, isn't it? He's in a dying condition. You believe God can tell me what his trouble is? Cancer of the bladder. If that's right, raise your hand. Will you believe that God will heal him? I'll pray for the same thing. Let me lay my hands on you and you represent him. Lord Jesus, spare this man. Bring it to pass, Father, I ask humbly as Your servant. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
God bless you, sister. Now, don't doubt. You believe that now? Jesus said, "As you have believed, so will it be unto you." Have faith.
Nobody will never know what that does to you. See? Now, the audience just seems blinded to me. Now, just have faith now and that's... [John 14:12]
L-93 Are you the next person? You and I are strangers, I suppose, to one another. Oh, you've been in a healing line be--in a healing line before somewhere else. In some other city, or... In Lake Street, in California, in... Oh--oh, I prayed for you before at Lake Street. How long ago has it been? Oh it's many years ago. Therefore we wouldn't know one other? No. But God does know us both. And you believe that God could make known to me something or another... Did He come--of course He come the same way...?... Then you're here for something else. Now, you would have faith then, wouldn't you? You have faith. All right, if the Lord will reveal it... All right. I trust that He will.
You're not here for yourself this time. You're here for someone else: a brother, very, very ill at the point of death. And I'll tell you something that you know, that you might believe me to be His prophet, or His servant, excuse me. That word prophet staggers the people (You see?), that's the reason I... But... It's his wife. She's in serious condition. She's about to have a nervous breakdown because of waiting on him. You have a real strange feeling on you now, don't you? Take that handkerchief that's on your hand while that feeling's on you and lay it on him. They'll recover. Don't doubt. Amen. God bless you.
You believe with all your heart yet? Don't doubt. Have faith in God. [Acts 19:12]
L-94 Setting right there, low blood pressure, a lady looking at me. You have a prayer card? You don't. All right, it's all right, He's done called you; it's His time. You have to take blood transfusions. That is right. But when I was talking to that woman, something happened to you, a real strange feeling went over you. If that's right, raise up your hand, this little lady setting right here in front. All right. And you said within your heart, "Lord, let it be me tonight." Now, stand up if them things are true. Stand up on your feet. Your troubles are over now. Jesus Christ makes you well.
I want to ask the audience one thing: What did that woman touch? I do not know her; I never seen her in my life. If we are strangers wave your hand to one--like this, sister, wave your hand like this so that the people know that we're strangers. I don't know you. What did she touch? The High Priest. She's twenty yards from me. She never touched me, did she? But she touched Something that spoke through me and told her what she was praying about, what she said, and how she felt. Is that right? Do you believe now, with all your heart? [Hebrews 4:15]
L-95 Now, don't move, please don't. See, if you do that--please... See these men standing here? They're watching every move I make. And as soon as they see that I have enough they'll take me from the platform. So to--to move, disturbs... See, I'm in contact with your spirit. That's what I--I'm trying to do. I'm here trying to help you. If you're... Nothing won't go wrong; you'll catch your bus; just set still. Just wait, just two or three more or something, let it...
L-96 How do you do? We are strangers to each other. I do not know you. But God does know you. If... How many is this that's went through? Has it been enough for a confirmation? Two? Just... I thought I had--been a dozen through. I... Well, felt a lot, maybe it's just me. All right. You, sister, God knows your heart; He knows my heart. But if He will, beyond any shadow of a doubt, we being strangers one to another, reveal Himself to us, will it make you believe? Will it make the audience believe? How many knows that I--it's just totally impossible for me to do that? Let's see your hands. See, see?
Now, with your hands down, how many accept it to be Jesus Christ according to His promise and His Word, raise your hands. That is true, my brother, sister. I'm telling you the truth (See?), this is His...?... Maybe a little strange from what you've ever seen, but it's His promise; He promised He would do it.
L-97 I have no idea what you're here for. I've never seen you; so therefore, it would--I--I have no idea of what you're here for. But God does know what you're here for. He knows you; He knows me; He--He knows all of us. Is that right? But if He will reveal to me something about you that I don't know, then you'll know it comes from Him. You've had something like a stroke bothers you. That's right. You're Swedish, aren't you?...?... I could see that water rolling, and I could see where you was from. You've had an accident and it knocked you out. And you were out for quite awhile, several days. And then you're--you still have evil effects from it. You won't have it no more. That turned Light right around you. Jesus has healed you now. Go on your road and be made well.
L-98 Are you believing with all your heart? Now, you say, "You're looking right at those people, Brother Branham. You're reading their mind." I'm not. Here, come here, lady. Touch my hand. If God will reveal to me looking this a way what's your trouble, you'll accept it, won't you? Then your heart trouble's left you. Just go on your road and rejoice.
You believe that with all your heart? Here. The Bible said the Angel down there that was a man that was anointed was called Elohim, that He had His back turned to the tent. Is that right? How about if I turn my back and you pray. I see a... [Genesis 18:9]

61-0224 - Fairgrounds Auditorium, Tulare, CA,
L-78 Now, listen. If this woman and I are perfect strangers and have never seen one another, if I am anointed with the Holy Spirit and could tell her something in her life, like Jesus did the woman at the well, whatever it might be that's in her life... We've never seen one another. It has to come through some spiritual power. Is that right? We know that. It would be a miracle. How many knows that?
A miracle is something that can't be solved out. All right. Then if it would take place, how many of you would believe it was the Christ, the Holy Ghost, the same as what...? All right. Then just receive it.
But her and I together never seen one another in our lives. Now, for the glory of God, in the Name of Jesus Christ, I take every spirit in here under my control for the glory of God.
Now, be reverent. Be in prayer...?... Now, lady, I want to speak to you just as Jesus did to the woman. Now, you might be here for sickness. You might be here for somebody else. You might... I don't know. See? It might be financial. I--I... You're just a woman standing here. That's the same way that the woman met our Lord.
L-79 Now, and He talked to her a little while. Now, you have to take my word for this. I couldn't prove this by the Scripture, but He had need go by Samaria, and He said He did nothing till the Father showed Him, so it must have been this a way. He--the Father sent Him up to Samaria. All right. Only thing He knowed to do was go up to Samaria. He thought He'd get alone, so He just sent the disciples away. He waited. A woman come up, so that might be the one.
So He set there and begin to talk to her. What was he doing? Contacting her spirit. Now, if He'd have went down there and said, "I am the Messiah, I--I am the Messiah," it'd be better for her to tell Him. See? Let Him declare Himself to this woman. See? God works in mysterious ways. See? And He told that woman something was in her life.
Well, she said, "You must be a prophet. I know when the Messiah cometh He will tell us this." She said, "He will do these things."
Jesus said, "I'm He." Now, He promised the same works, especially in this age. [John 4:4, 19, 25]
L-80 Now, if--if you were sick and I've just--I have a gift of Divine healing. A gift of Divine healing is nothing but faith in Divine healing. That's all it is: have faith. Everybody have faith in Divine healing has a gift of Divine healing, 'cause that's all it is.
Now, that don't make them a Divine Healer no more than it makes the man that believes in salvation a--a Divine Saviour. See? It just... He believes in it. I believe in it too, but I'm not a gifted person like some of the men, like Jack Coe, and many of them brethren was, just real... I guess they... God deals with them in their ways, and Brother Roberts in his ways, and me with my way. We just got ministries. That's all.
L-81 God set in the church: apostles, prophets, teachers, evangelists, pastors. That's all. Then them nine spiritual gifts in the church. You say, "Brother Branham, what are you trying to do? I'm trying to contact your spirit.
Jesus sent me to this city. I was led here. Now, here's a woman. by having a number on her prayer card way up in the--I forget where I called--50 or 75 or somewhere around. I forgot where it was. You just happened to be that woman standing here. All right.
Now, not knowing one another. Now, what I am trying to do? Contact your spirit. And if the Lord God... If I said I had a gift of healing, laid my hands on you, and say, "Praise the Lord. Hallelujah. You're going to get well." That'd be all right. Go believe it, you'd get well. I believe it. God will honor your faith.
But what if He comes and tells you something that you--that you have been, then tells you what you will be. You know where--whether it--what it has been, whether it's the truth or not. Something that you have done in your life, way back there, or whatever He does, or something on that order. Then it would make the same Messiah. The audience wouldn't accept it. They'd believe it and just accept it. [Ephesians 4:11]
L-82 Now, may He grant it. Now, if the audience can still my voice. That Pillar of Fire that you seen on the picture is standing right between me and the woman. I see her. She's moving away. She looks years younger than what she does in person standing close to me. She's moved back to... She's had some sort of an operation, and that was on her throat. It was a goiter. That's right. Is that--if that's right, raise up your hand? All right, now. You believe with all your heart.
Now, let's just talk to the woman just a little bit longer (See?), just a little bit longer. See? So that you... The people thinks you guessed it. See what else He'd say.
Yes, I see her now again. It's a surgery on her throat. That's been quite awhile ago, and the thing's come back again. You got it again. That is right. But see he's hid from the doctor, but he can't hide from God. God knows right where he's at. It's a life from multiplication of cells growing, smothering. Just like you was a little baby in the womb of your mother growing. But this has no form. It's just spreading out. It's the devil, choking spirit. That's right.
L-83 That you might know. There sets a woman setting right there, throat trouble too. That's right. What did you touch? I don't know you, do I? Never seen you in my life, but that's what's you're suffering with. See, if that be like one spirit calling to the other like that for help (See?), like that. It's crossed up. See? If the Holy Spirit would tell me who you were, would it help you? Would it help the audience? Mrs. Harrison, you can go home and be well. Your faith saves you.
Is Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever? Now, here was a woman standing here with a prayer card. That one setting out there in the audience... See? Now, it's totally impossible for me to do that. You say, "Brother Branham, tell me." I can't do it. I don't know. You just touch Him and find out.
That woman setting there was praying, and that spirit... Now, you start praying and see what happens. You just believe it. Don't you doubt it. You believe it with all your heart and just see what happens. Have faith. [Hebrews 13:8]
L-84 We are strangers to one another. We were born probably years apart, but if the Lord God will reveal to me something in your heart that you might know that It is--It's His Word, that this Message that I have preached tonight, that's His Word. And if that dwells in my heart, then the Word of God is a discerner of the thoughts and the intents in the heart. Is that right? Just like it was when It was made flesh in the Son of God. It's the same thing in our flesh today, the Church.
So I couldn't do it by myself. It takes you to do too. It takes them out there. It takes somebody else out there to have this same Anointing. See? Might not... It'll work, but maybe they might not be able to speak it out, because this is a gift. See?
When I was born, gifts and callings is without repentance. I was just a little bitty baby boy the same thing that happened right along all around through the life, without repenting.
L-85 You're sick because you've been consulting a doctor about something. That's right. And that's--that's a throat trouble also. Uh-huh. And now, here's the analysis of it. You be the judge. It's in the voice box. And it's an ulcer inside the voice box. It was. It isn't now...?... faith... Just have faith.
We are strangers to one another, lady. I don't know you. If God will reveal to me what you're here for, you believe me to be His prophet or His servant? You will? It's a hernia. Had some trouble, hadn't you, but surgeons, operations having an effect on like cancer. Now, it's come to a hernia. That's true. You believe that He healed you? Then go on. God will make you well. God bless you. Have faith. Do you believe?
Out in the audience there, just be real reverent. I don't care where you are. I--I ask you as your brother, in the Name of Jesus Christ to believe this to be the truth. Watch what happens. Just pray. Say, "Lord, let me touch You." See what happens. I--I believe...
L-86 Now, them makes me so weak, just so weak. How many would understand that? Sure. If the Son of God, just one person touched Him, and He said strength went out of Him, what about me, a sinner saved by grace?
But it declares He's here. It declares His Presence. He's here. You believe that too standing up, all around. You believe it? Just--just have faith and believe it.
Come here. Now, when I get about three of these, you let me know, so I got other meetings coming.
I--I'm a stranger to you. I do not know you, but do you believe me to be His servant? If you were standing here, and our Lord was here in a physical form... He's here spiritually, because it's the Holy Spirit that come down on Him like a Dove, and now It comes on us like a Fire.
You are a believer. I don't mean a hitchhiker; I mean a believer. That's right. Then do you believe me to be His servant? If I would be able to tell you by the Spirit of God what you're here for, you'll believe me? Sinuitis. Oh, that's a terrific thing. That is right. If that's right, raise up your hand? That's right. But that's not all is on your heart. You got something else on your heart you want me to tell you about. He's got an ulcer on the leg. Take that handkerchief that you're wipe your tears with and put on the ulcer. It'll leave him. Go believe...?... [Acts 19:12]
L-87 How do you do, sir? We are strangers to one another. I have never seen you before, and we are strangers to each other. But the God of heaven Who raised up His Son, Jesus Christ, Who ascended on high and sent gifts back to men... And He set in the Church: "apostles" which means "missionary," "prophets" that means "seers," pastors, evangelists, so forth. He still remains to be God. If God will reveal to me what your trouble is, will you receive me as His prophet, or as His servant? Will you do that? All right, sir. Will the audience do the same thing?
Is this three yet or... Well, just... We got this one here. There's something strange about the man. I can't make it out yet, but let the Holy Spirit reveal it as I speak with him. I hope my voice is loud enough that you can hear. [Ephesians 4:11]
L-88 It goes beyond... Now, here it comes to the man. The man's in a terrible condition. He's at the hour of death almost. He's shadowed for death with a cancer, and the cancer is in his throat. That is right. You know, smoking cigarettes is hard on the throat. Will you quit them? Give them up?
Another thing, you're not a Christian. You're a sinner. Will you accept Him as your Saviour for your soul? If God by... The apostle Peter came, he was a sinner too. If God will reveal to me your name, and tell me your name like He did the apostle Peter, will you believe that It's the Christ, that God loves you and saves you now from... You will take my word that your sins are forgiven? You will. Mr. Davidson, then you go home and get well.
Have faith in God. I keep feeling something come in out there from somewhere. You think I'm reading their mind. I'm not. Here, just touch my hand, lady. If I will look this way and tell you what your trouble, you'll know whether it's right or not. Is that right? Then your cancer will leave, if you'll believe it. Will you believe it? Raise up your hand if that's so. Then go. Have faith.
L-89 Come, lady. Will you believe, lady? [The lady says, Yes."--Ed.] If God will reveal to me, looking this a way what your trouble is, would you believe me to be His prophet or His servant? [The lady says, "Prophet."--Ed.] You believe to be His... Thank you, sis. Then go eat your supper. That stomach condition has left you.
If I tell you before lady comes, she had the same thing. Got a nervous stomach. You've had it for a long time. Go eat. Have faith.
You believe your back trouble left you, setting there? Well, then go. Praise the Lord. Don't doubt it.
Come, lady. Heart trouble, God could heal her heart trouble. Go, believe it with all your heart.
God heals arthritis too. Did you know that? Then go believe it.
Come. Do you believe God can heal your asthma and make you well? Go rejoicing...?... Do you believe God can heal your diabetes and make you well? Go on. Go...?...
If that other lady was healed of asthma, a young girl like you could be healed with it, couldn't you? Don't doubt. Have faith. You believing?
L-90 The whole audience is becoming milky like to me.
That man setting over there on the right that's setting there looking at me. I caught it a few minutes ago when the lady had believed. Your faith saves you. Go ahead. Do you believe with all your heart?
Do you believe that God can heal you of that diabetes? You started to get up awhile ago. I could've told you then. Don't worry. It's over.
What about you setting next to him there, that bless you too? The man setting next to him, you believe God will heal that high blood pressure and make you well? All right.
The lady setting next to him has diabetes too. You believe He will make you well?
What about you setting there at the end, lay hands on you, you believe you'll get well? Come here. In the Name of the Lord Jesus...?... You're trying to get a hold of yourself. Everybody's telling you that anyhow, but nervousness is a terrible thing. You've wanted a place to put your foot so you could start from right there. Is that right? You're on the spot now. Your nervousness is gone. Go...?... Do you believe it with all your heart?
L-91 Somebody out there pray. Believe. Here, here's a woman setting before me. She's praying, but she's not praying for herself. She's praying for her mother, a mother in an insane institution. You wondered whether I was talking at you, wasn't you? You was wanting that contact. Now, if you was praying for your mother, raise up your hand? The lady setting here. Sure. I challenge you to believe it. I challenge you to believe it anyway you want to. Do you believe it?
How many of you in here--how many in here don't know Jesus as your Saviour and you'd like to know Him right now as your Saviour, raise up your hand? You want to know Him as your Saviour, stand up on your feet. You that wants to know Him as Saviour right now accept Him while--while He's present, stand on your feet, everywhere in the building. Stand on your feet..
L-92 You know He's present, don't you? Now, I'm trying move this altar. Jesus Christ, God's Son is here to forgive you of every sin. Will you accept Him, not what you feel, but upon the basis of He died for you, and you know you're in His Presence now; and you believe that He died for you and you want Him to be your Saviour and want to accept Him upon those grounds, raise up your hands to Him.
Heavenly Father, You said in the Word that, "No man can come to Me, except My Father draws him first." And these people in their spirits know that they are wrong, and so they've accepted You as their Saviour.
I pray, Father, that You will grant that to them right now. They've accepted You. You said, "He that comes to Me, I will in no wise cast out. Come unto Me, all ye that labor and heavy leaden and I'll give you rest."
You said in Saint John 5:24. "He that heareth My Words and believeth on Him that sent Me, has Everlasting Life and shall not come to the judgment, but's passed from death to Life." They're Yours, Father. They're the tokens of this meeting. [John 6:37, 44], [John 5:24]
L-93 With our heads bowed. If you believe that God hears my prayer, I want you to walk up here, and you come right out of the aisles there that raised your hands. Come right here and stand here just a minute, right around the altar. Move right down this way just a moment, everyone that wants Christ right now, come right down here just moment.
But that Thy blood was shed for me,
And that Thou bidd'st me come to Thee,
O Lamb of God, I come! I come!

Every church member that doesn't know Christ as your Saviour and you want to know Him, why would you turn Him away right now, when you see it right here present. If God hears my prayer and opens the eyes of the blind, makes the lame to walk. He--He will forgive you of sin too.
L-94 If He knows your heart and tells you on the platform what's...?... He tells me out there there's still more ought to come. He's speaking to you. I don't have to call you, 'cause I'm getting so weak I can't hardly stand here. Come right quick, will you, so I won't have to wait any longer? Come right now.
Just as I am, and waiting not
To rid my soul of one dark blot,
To Thee, whose blood can cleanse each spot,
O Lamb of God, (All right now.)... come! I come!

Just as I am, Thou wilt receive,
Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, receive;
Because Thy promise I believe,
O Lamb (Come, my brother. Come, my sister) I come! I come!

Just as I am, Thou wilt receive,
Wilt welcome...
Come, everyone. Come now...?... Don't...?... if you're not too sure, come now. He's right here at the platform. Before God I tell the truth. That day...?... an Angel of God Who knows the heart of every man is right here now.
Lamb of God (You won't never be any closer until you see Him coming.) I...
(If there's any question in your heart, come now.)
I am, and waiting not
To rid my soul from one dark blot
To Thee, whose blood can cleanse (Will you--would you come pray for us?)
O Lamb...
Receive, Wilt welcome (Come on, little lady)...

61-0226 - Fairgrounds Auditorium, Tulare, CA,
L-87 All this week, Lord, this is five straight sermons cutting in on this hour now through here. We've arrived. Something must do, Lord. Your Word's went forth. Your signs has went forth. You've confirmed Your Word. Now, it's up to the people. Lord, when they pass through this line and be prayed for, may they have faith. May they go off this platform just praising God. If it happens, thank God. If it doesn't happen, it's going to happen anyhow. You said so. You're the God that made the promises in the building today. Grant it, Father. I ask it in Jesus' Name. Grant it to each one of these for Your Glory. May it be so, Lord. Amen.
All right. We got about three or four hundred people to be prayed for. How many believes that the last words that come from Jesus' mouth when He left the earth; the last words that He did, He said this, "These signs shall follow them that believe. If they lay their hands on the sick, they shall recover." Did He say it? Now, He promised that. [Mark 16:18]
L-88 Is there any strangers here has never been in one of the meetings, raise your hands, never been in one of them before, raise up your hand. There's quite a few. You might say to me then, "Brother Branham, you spoke to us of an Angel that would be here in the last days that would be dwelling in human flesh. And it would be God dwelling in human flesh. I don't know nothing about these things, but you said there would be. I've never seen Him do that like He did down there to show that we were at Sodom."
How many is sick out there that don't know me, raise up your hands, have a need? Raise up your hand. I don't care where you are. Get real reverent.
L-89 Before we call a prayer line... In the prayer line we won't have discernment, 'cause we can't with three or four hundred pass through here. I'm going to pray for them, but not have discernment. We'll have the discernment line now, to you that's out there in the audience.
I don't know a soul out there. I've got a brother here named Fred Sothmann. I've got one named Brother Tom. I got one, Brother Evans. They're out there somewhere. Where are you? Are you in the service today, brethren? Where... Way back in the back, yeah, way back there. That's all that I know.
L-90 How many you men back there, you ministers has never had a chance of this. I don't know you. I--I--I met you over there, but that... I don't know nothing about you, no diseases or nothing. That's right? Now, there it is, say, "Brother Branham, isn't that kind of a bold thing?" Yeah, but He promised it. Yes, sir. He promised it.
Now, let's see if the Holy Spirit... If He will do it once more before you pass through this prayer line, so you'll see the anointing is here, will it be all right with you? May God grant it. I'm just going to try to see if the Holy Spirit would do it. I want to turn my back to each section, all the way around me. That'll get out of each section.
I want to ask you a question. Do you believe that Angel of the Lord told the truth, I'm able to do this by the Spirit of God? All right. This section through this way, and then we'll go through this way, and then through this way, and around this way. See? Just pray now and see...
L-91 Now, what was that Angel? That... It was God. Abraham said He was Elohim. Now, just pray over in this section, say, "Lord, the man don't know me, don't know nothing about me." How many in this section through here that knows that I don't know you, but yet you're sick and needy, raise up your hand. See? I'm going to turn my back. You pray.
Now, heavenly Father, this is not to... This is not a show. This is not to make a show, but this is to fulfill Your promise. You know my heart. You know my objective, and You know my motive in doing it. I know Your grace by letting me do it. And I pray, Father, that You'll let it be done again, that the people might know that I've told them the truth.
Abraham's seed are heirs with him of every promise. Grant it through Jesus' Name, and all praise shall be Yours, Lord. I've plainly told the people, and they know I'm just one of the humblest of Your servants, no education, no ability of no kind. But You come down when I was a little baby boy there in the crib. And somehow another You just give me a little gift that I could relax myself and You could do the talking. O God, let that be. Help me, Lord.
L-92 Forgive me of my errors and mistakes in life as being a man. But look upon the objective of my heart and the motive. And I pray that it's Your will this afternoon to manifest it again before us. Through Jesus' Name I will praise Thee, and all of us will praise Thee. When the people pass through the line, they will know the very God that knows their heart knows their condition.
Then, Lord, may there not be a wheelchair but what will be empty. May there not be a cot but what will be empty. May there not be a sick person in our midst, but what has... Maybe they may not be completely well then, but like Abraham, they've got the promise. They will hold to it, and You will confirm it, Lord. You always do for You're God. In Jesus' Name I ask it. Amen.
L-93 Now, in the Name of Jesus Christ I take every spirit in here under my control for God's glory, for the working of His Spirit.
There's an evil power behind me, black, horrible. It's epilepsy. It's on a woman. She has epilepsy. Her name is Mrs. Camel. Stand up; accept your healing; believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and be made well.
You believe now? There's a woman setting right here close to me, and she is... She's suffering with a--some kind of a kidney trouble, and it's kidney stones. And she's praying for somebody now. It's--it's her husband, and he's got mental condition. Her name is Mrs Lynn. Raise up and receive your healing.
L-94 You believe now? Have faith. Do you believe it's the same Angel of the Lord? Now, what about down through here? Is anybody sick down through here? Raise up your hand.
There's a woman right behind me. It's a woman, and she's got a tumor. They're in her lungs. Her name is Mrs. Spangler. Rise up, Mrs. Spangler, and accept your healing.
Now, you believe? I don't know these people, never seen them. By the way, now look in this way. Look this way now. Mrs. Spangler, do me a favor. Lay your hand on the lady next to you there. She has got kidney trouble and wants to be healed. That's right. Now, you lay your hand on the one next to you. She's got kidney trouble and wants to be healed. Now, you lay your hand on the woman in front of you, that woman with the red sweater on there praying for her husband. She has got to go to the hospital for the deterioration of her body. She's praying for her husband. You believe? Then you'll be healed. Amen.
You believe with all your hearts? Have faith in God. Don't doubt. If thou canst believe. Do you believe with all your heart?
L-95 Back in this section I see a young lady. She's praying for the salvation of her father. Believe it, young lady. You will receive it. Don't weep. Just believe.
There's another lady comes before me. She's back behind me. She's got liver trouble, two or three there. I--I feel it, but I see one. Her name is Mrs Watham. Believe with all your heart and receive your healing.
There's a lady behind me playing the organ. She's got something wrong with her back. There's a minister behind me with back trouble too. Don't doubt. You believe with all your heart? There you are. Do you believe Him?
I love Him, I love Him
Because... (You believe Him with all your heart now?)
... first loved...
L-96 You going to believe it down here? Each one of you down here on these cots, you going to believe it? You going to believe it out there? How many knows that the same Angel of God is here today? Raise up your hand and say, "I believe it." See how true He is, how real He is?
Now, how many believes if you pass through this prayer line, hands will be laid on you, you'd be made well? How many has got faith in your pastor, believe that he's a man of God, raise up your hand? I'm going to put up my hands too. I believe he is also. Now, I'm going to ask him to come out here and help me, each one of you. Come right out here on the platform. Let's form a prayer line here. Get on this side, half of you, some of you on the other side.
All with prayer card number A stand up and come over here on this side: A? [Blank.spot.on.tape--Ed.]
On Calvary's tree.
L-97 Now, I want everyone to bow your head, everybody in prayer, while you're singing: "I Love Him." I want to come down and pray especially for these that's on cots and stretchers down, that's convalescent. I want you to be praying with me, all you brethren. I'll be back on the platform just in a minute. All the congregation be praying while I go down.
Abraham's seed is... Are you ready to receive your healing? Aren't all of them out there? [A brother speaks to Brother Branham--Ed.] Well, I thought maybe they'd be... Well [Blank.spot.on.tape--Ed.] Spirit will anoint us so much that we'll probably not know where we are. I want you to remember I love you. Bye-bye to you. God bless you. I hope to see you again right away. Until I do, always follow the path of Him that keeps the moon shining at night, the stars bright to make going good. Remember me when you're talking to Him. Tell Him I love Him. I want to see you over there.
All right. Is your prayer line ready? Everyone bow your head now and sing, "I Love Him," while the line passes through.
L-98 Father God, they're coming. In... All you ministers get up there and lay hands on them now. Get up there. I want you to stand up there and lay hands on these people. Now, as they come through. Come right on.
Oh, Father... [Blank.spot.on.tape--Ed.]... But I never seen a healing like this. I never seen... before in my life... [Blank.spot.on.tape--Ed.] my life. I never felt so much faith in one prayer line in my life. That's right. Oh, that's what we've been waiting for.
You coming through now, pass through praising Him. Come through believing Him. That's the way to do. Come, believing it. When you pass by here, not by a man, pass... And you'll know your pastor's...?...
L-99 [Blank.spot.on.tape--Ed.]... What they call fast line. And all I've ever been through, I don't believe that one meeting I've ever felt so much faith as what was right here in this line. I'm just as sure as I'm standing on this platform; you're going to see, you brethren, among these people something happening. It has been a great...
You know why? It's because that the pastors believe. They're servants of God. The reason I had these men to come here and pray, that you people might realize and understand, your pastor has the same authority to pray for you that I, or any another man has. And they have their hands laid on you as same as I had. If you get sick in the future, don't wait for somebody to come by with some special ministry. You see what happens when your pastor prays for you? You get healed too. See? So they're servants of God. They're God's servants, ordained to lay hands on the sick and pray for the sick just like anything else.
L-100 If you... If I found grace in your sight as a servant of God, believe me, have faith in your pastor, 'cause he's a man sent from God. Have faith in him. Now, he's coming down, some of these pastors with me to help pray for these people in the wheelchairs, if some of you brethren will come on down on the platform--off the platform with me to pray for them.

61-0305 - Branham Tabernacle, Jeffersonville, IN,
L-36 Here's Divine healing. Why did Jesus stripe? To tear the picture up and say there's no such a thing to it? He striped His body down there. The ribs showed through, that by His stripes, we were healed. Let's not tear the picture up this morning. Let's embrace it, accept it.
Now, brother and every one of you now that's going to be prayed for, if you'll just stand around the altar. While the message went forth a few moments ago, through interpretation and tongues, that we'd lay hands on the sick and see the mighty works of God...
Now, our brother, you don't have to stand up, brother, that laying on the cot. We'll come to you. But if there's any others here to be prayed for like to stand around the altar, while the brother and I pray and lay hands on the sick, you come right on now.
And remember, embrace that picture. By His stripes we were healed. "I don't understand it, Lord." Sure you don't. You're still in the womb of the earth yet. But He made those preparations and He wouldn't take...
L-37 Why was He striped? Just to tear the picture up or tear the song up and throw it away? No, sir. He was striped, wounded, and bled that we might be healed. And by that we--His stripes, we are healed, every one of us.
Now, as you're coming, gathering around the altar for prayer. Now, a lot of this here super-duper American evangelism, and talk about you got to do this, do that. There's one thing I want to be honest with you about, my friend. The same way God heals is on the basis of service to Him. See? It's on the basis of service to Him. We must accept our healing on the basis of: we will serve Him after we are healed.
L-38 Now, the Bible said, "Confess your faults one to another. Pray one for the other, that you might be healed." See? It's on the basis you'll serve God. Many of you here, perhaps, are in dying condition. And you--you must die if something doesn't take place. Then I want you in your heart...
Now, we might anoint you with oil; we might pray over you, your pastor, and I, pray a prayer of faith, do everything we can. But it won't do no good until you yourself enter into fellowship with Christ. See? You got to come to that fellowship that, "I, Lord."
I see a--a--a young lady walking up there just now. She come up here not long ago to the house with something like a tumor, or Hodgkin's disease, and she's the Methodist by faith. She... I believe that's right, isn't it, sister? And she had a big lump in the side and now there she stands healed. [James 5:16]
L-39 I see Sister Weaver standing here, was one of the as bad of cancer cases that I've seen in all my life. And the first thing I asked her, would she be baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ and confess her sins. When I took her in this water here, I had to hold she was so thin, her arms just little bitty things. And she was baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ, and that's at least been ten years ago, hasn't sister? [A sister says, "Been sixteen years."--Ed.] Sixteen years ago. Sixteen years of spared life, because she was willing to come in obedience when the very best of doctors around here...
Why, her own doctor told me... When I told him he--told him, said, "She's healed."
L-40 Said, "Oh, she'll die with cancer in a few weeks. Don't worry about that. She'll be gone, in another few weeks she'll be gone." And he already just give her about a day to live. And here she is today after sixteen years standing at the altar. What more could I say, over and over, and over and over how...
Now, God just doesn't do that for one of His children and doesn't do it for another children. He does it for all of His children: "Whosoever will may come." It's... You're invited to Him. Now, the prayer of faith shall save the sick. The Bible said that.
Now--now, if... What I want you to do is confess your wrongs to God, and say, "Lord, heal me." If you have never been converted, give your hearts to Christ. And if you have never been baptized in water in the Name of Jesus Christ, there's a pool ready. See?
L-41 And this little lady across the street here when that infidel there was converted by it, when she was laying, they sent her home in Silvercrest with TB, dying. And when I went down there and the Lord gave a vision, said she was going to be healed. And he met me there the next morning, Mr. Andrews, and just bawled me out said, "A false hope like that upon that woman."
I said, "Mr. Andrews, it is not a false hope. The woman is a Christian, and when she gets able, she's coming to be baptized."
And he said, "She's dying." Said, "I... how could she be sent home from Silvercrest?"
I said, "Sir, you're looking... you're... What you're looking at, you're looking at what the doctor says; I'm looking at what God said." See?
Now, it's just the difference in what you're looking at. See? You look at what the doctor says you sure will die, but you got to look at what God said. Whose word you going to take?
L-42 What if Abraham would've took the doctor's opinion that him being a hundred years old and going to have a baby by his wife ninety? What would he done then? See? Why, the doctor would've said, "The man's crazy."
But God inputted unto him for righteousness, because he believed God. See? Now, you... And the woman lived. She neglected being baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ, because I think she was kind of Methodist, or Presbyterian; she started getting sicker and sicker. And she come and got Grace Weber, that lived right... lives there--here her daughter does, rode and come here and was baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ with a fever with diseases of lumps broke out all over her shoulders, and everything, with a fever of a hundred and four. And was baptized right here in the Name of Jesus Christ, and she lives just across the street from us. May be setting here now. Look around and see if I could see her a few minutes ago.
L-43 It's obedience. You see? It's not just going around... I differ with some of our brothers. Just laying hands on this, that, and the other, like that, and saying, some kind of a super-duper faith will do it. That's not it. You've got to have genuine, solid, Bible, Holy Ghost faith. If it don't, it will not last. It's not lasting.
That's the reason I can thank the Lord that He has helped me so far. The--the--the healings that's taken place has been genuine, because they're genuinely built upon THUS SAITH THE LORD. See? Therefore they will stand.
Now--now, as the little Sunday school... I was waiting just a minute, talking to you till they got their places positionally so we could quiet now. We just got a couple of minutes we'll start praying.
L-44 Now, I want each one of you confess your wrongs to God and promise God that you'll serve Him and do everything that you can. And, pastor and I are going to pray and come lay hands on you, and you're sure to get healed, if you believe it.
How could those people on crutches, and deaf, and dumb, and blind last Sunday afternoon just walk up to the platform and throw away their crutches, walk up to the platform and eyes come open, you know like that? Hundreds times hundreds of them...
Well, I was so weak, I almost had to be packed from the place, just standing there and them passing by. See? A line that would reach from here to Jeffersonville High School almost, lined-up. Come through the line, and I don't know, if there's one of them passed through but what was healed. See? Because they come upon basis of real genuine Christian faith and believing. See? It has to happen.
Now, bow your heads everyone and help me pray for them.
L-45 Lord Jesus, we bring to You this morning this audience standing here waiting of sick, afflicted, tormented children. They are beyond any hope, many of them, Lord, of the doctor's cure, especially this man laying here on this cot. It's either Your grace or he comes out of the world in a few days. And no doubt there may be some standing along the altar here with heart attacks waiting them, and diseases, and afflictions that would tear them apart.
There's only one thing, Father, that can save them that's go beyond the five senses here of this body, where the doctors has tried faithfully no doubt to save their life: diseases, cancer, TB, heart trouble. And with all the patching, and tubes, and materials, and--and--and germ-fighting medicine, the enemy crowds right on in to take their life.
And I've expressed, Lord, I believe Your opinion to them. And I've heard the man speak in tongues this morning and gave that interpretation what would happen today. Some of them is going to receive it, Lord, surely. That's right. I believe it.
L-46 Now, it is written in the Bible that David, the little shepherd boy was watching his father's sheep out behind the desert. And one day a lion came in and got one of his father's lambs and run off with it. That little shepherd boy with faith, what did he have to come against this lion? Not a modern rifle or gun. But he had a little slingshot and he went after that lion. He killed that lion and brought that sheep back. A bear come in and got one. He went after that bear that could've crushed him to the earth. But he didn't think about the size of the bear, or the power of the lion, or his swiftness, or his inability with the slingshot.
But when he was standing before Saul the king, he said, "Thy servant herded his father's sheep, and a lion come in, and got one, and run out. And I went after him and brought the sheep back." He said, "The same God that delivered me from the hand of the paw of that bear, or the jaws of that lion, can also take this uncircumcised Philistine and hand him into my hand." [I Samuel 17:34-37]
L-47 How we know the story goes that he did slay--slew a man that was many, many times bigger than he was, and a warrior. How it stumped Saul, the great king, great mighty man, how that that little boy could have such faith in a slingshot, no, not in a slingshot, but in God.
Now, Lord, standing around this altar and laying here on this cot is God's sheep, little lambs as it was to him. They have been caught up by a lion called cancer, a bear called TB, other diseases that's caught them, and jerking them out, and tearing them to pieces. Lord, I--I'm coming after them with a little slingshot called prayer of faith. It's not very much, but I know what it has done. And I know it's still the same God that I'm coming after them this morning to bring them back, Lord, to shady green pastures of good health, down by the still waters of peace, and away from their flusterations, to believe on You.
And I go after them with the armor that You gave to go in. "The prayer of faith shall save the sick, and God shall raise them up. If they have did any sin, it shall be forgiven them."
L-48 Father, we go now to meet the enemy, to meet the lion, to meet the--the devil on every form that he's in called cancer, TB, Hodgkin's disease, heart trouble, any other disease. We come to bind him, and bring in this lamb back to the house of God again. In the Name of Jesus Christ we go to use this slingshot that You have given us. Be with us, Father, as we reverently approach Thee now in Jesus' Name.
I want you to keep your heads bowed. And we're coming to anoint with oil and lay hands on the sick, and the prayer of faith shall save the sick. Every Christian in here put your faith to this prayer line.
