63-0628E - Associated Brotherhood Of Christians Campground, Hot Springs, AR (Paragraphs: 231 - 313)
L-232 Don't forget Life's magazine now, last month. To see where He predicted what would happen, and there standing there, witnesses here tonight that was in there. Even science knows nothing about it. They're wondering why it could be; but it is.
L-233 Now, look, I'm going to take a new Scripture tonight. The Bible said, that, "Jesus Christ is the High Priest that can be touched by the feeling of our infirmities." Is that right, brethren? [The ministers say, "That's right. Amen."--Ed.] That's the Scripture. Now, if He is the High Priest that can be touched by the feeling of our infirmities, now if you touched Him, He would act, if He is the same as He was, He would act as He did then. Cause you can't... That's the only way you would ever know Him, is by His action. See? [Hebrews 4:15]
L-234 Any hypocrite can put scars in his hand, and blood or what more, but a life is what tells it. See? I could take a tree and tie leaves on it, out here, of a different tree, but what kind of fruit does it put forth? See?
L-235 Now, Christ's Life live in you, then if that first Life that come out of that branch... Now He has no hands now but yours and mine. He has no voice but mine and yours. See, the vine doesn't bear fruit. The branch bears fruit. And if the branch that bore in the first limb that come out of that grape vine, as I said, they wrote a Book of Acts behind it. If it ever puts forth another original vine, you'll write another Book of Acts behind it. It'll be the same Spirit, 'cause it's the same Life in the entire vine. Every branch that bears will be There.
L-236 Now I want you to notice something, as we sit here. How many of you believe that Christ is here? [Congregation says, "Amen."--Ed.] How many of you is sick, raise your hand. How many of you believe that you have faith enough, that you would touch His garment, He would act in the same way?
L-237 I ain't going to call no prayer line. Just call it, just let it come from here. That's quite a challenge. But you got a lot of faith, and I believe that God will honor it.
L-238 Now I'm going to look over the audience, and I want to see if there is somebody that I know in the audience. I know Brother Tracy Boutliere sitting there. This brother here, I'm not acquainted with these ministers right along here. One minister back in the back there that I know of him. Outside of that, upon the authority of my Bible, and It over my heart... I don't swear, 'cause the Bible said not to do it; but by my Bible over my heart, I lie not. I don't see one more person that I know, outside of Jim Maguire.
L-239 And if I'm not sure, that's a brother that I met at the Tabernacle the other day. I just met him. I forget what his name is. He does work at the Tabernacle at Jeffersonville. Is that right? Now, that's the only person that I know, that I can see that I know.
L-240 Now, if Jesus was here, and you wanted to be healed, and you would ask Him, "Lord, will You heal me?"
L-241 Here is what. If He was standing here with this suit on that He give me, He couldn't heal you. He has already done it. See, it was finished at Calvary. And the whole world was saved, the whole world was forgiven, everything happened at Calvary. See, "He was wounded for our transgressions, with His stripes we were healed," past tense. See?
L-242 Now the only thing you have to do. It'll never do you no good unless you believe it; not feel it. Jesus never did say, "Did you feel it?" He said, "Did you believe it?"
L-243 I've seen people put up their hand, say, "Feel it! Feel it! Feel it!" He never did say that.
He said, "Did you believe it?" Faith, see.
L-244 Notice, now. If He is that same High Priest, He would have to act in the same way. No matter how much He would anoint me, He has got to anoint you, too.
L-245 Say, I do see a man that I know. There is Mr. Way, the man that dropped dead in the church the other day, that God brought back to life, sitting right there. And a minister sitting by him, that I know, sitting right there by him. But otherwise, this... Yes, I believe I see this brother, this is his brother that I met down there with the Blackwell family today, praying in the home.
L-246 But you people who believe Him, and believe that you can touch Him, I'm going to ask you something. Now, I'm your brother, just a--a--a man, just like your husband, or your brother, or your pastor, just a man. And now, there, it's not out in some dark room, like some devil. And, the devil don't do that, anyhow. Did you ever hear a devil preach the Gospel, get souls saved and healed? "If Satan can cast out Satan, then his kingdom is divided against himself," Jesus said. No. [Matthew 12:26]
L-247 But right here, you look and believe that Jesus still remains that same High Priest that He was, and you say, "Lord Jesus, I am sick. Or, I got a sick mother sitting here, or a brother in a home. Lord, I--I--I can't pay my debt. Help me. I'll--I'll confess all my sins. I--I--I'm a sinner; I--I want to get right with God." Something another, ask Him. Touch Him, as the High Priest, and see if He doesn't act today like He did then. That shows He is with us.
L-248 Now, I believe He will do it. I don't... He has never failed me yet, in all these years. I--I believe Him. But you can understand what a challenge that is. But it ain't...
Somebody said, "Aren't you afraid?" No, sir.
L-249 How can I be afraid, and Him right here by me? He, it's His Word; it's not mine. I'm just saying what He said, that's my confession. Confess means "say the same thing." The Scripture, which is God, God in letter form. "The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us." And the Word still is God. And the Word said, "He is the same yesterday, today, and forever." It's up to Him to confirm It. It's worth me to believe It. Now you believe It. [John 1:14], [Hebrews 13:8]
L-250 Now I want each one of you then, quietly, silently, to offer a prayer to God, and say, "Lord God, help me. I know that little old stoop-shouldered man standing up there don't know nothing about me, but You know me. And if You will just do, and repeat a Scripture for me tonight."
L-251 Like the woman touched His garment. He didn't actually feel the touch of the hand, because, as I told you, the Palestinian garment is loose; underneath garment, thick. Big heavy robes, He didn't feel it. And He said, "Who touched Me?"
L-252 And Peter rebuked Him, saying, "Lord!" Why, he took Him and rebuked Him for it. In other words, "It sounds insane for You to say it. Everybody has got their arms around You, patting You on the back. 'Who touched Me?'" [Mark 5:30]
L-253 He said, "But virtue gone from Me. Somebody touched Me with a different touch."
Can you make that touch tonight?
L-254 I surrender myself. Now remember, I am a total mute to these things, outside the Kingdom of God. It's just like this microphone. This microphone can't speak; it can only speak when something speaks through it. And we are just like that microphone, to this. I don't know you, but it takes something to speak through here.
L-255 And you believe it, and have faith in God, and God will grant it. Do you believe it? [Congregation says, "Amen."--Ed.] Now just believe. Have faith, and don't doubt. Believe on the Lord God. Now just pray, be real reverent, and just see.
L-256 Now, Heavenly Father, I've been speaking at length. There is people sitting here who are Eternity-bound people, every one of us. Our heads are bowed to the dust, where You took us from; and if You tarry, we will return to that dust. These spirits and souls that's in us, must return to You for the Judgment.
L-257 Now, Heavenly Father, we pray that You will honor Your Word tonight. I have spoke of You, now speak that I have said the Truth, Lord. I am Your servant. I commit myself to You. And if there be someone in here, Lord, that has that type of faith, that could bring forth the manifestation of Jesus Christ; to show that the sign that He promised, the last sign to the Gentile church, it would take place; the elect church, like Abraham's group, called out. We see Billy Graham and those man down there in Sodom, calling them out; but we remember the One that stayed with Abraham give them another sign, that the coming son was at hand. Lord, let us see that sign, tonight, as the Man had His back turned to the tent, and said, "Why did Sarah laugh?" Jesus said it will repeat again, just before the coming of the Son of man; God manifested in the flesh, in human flesh, through the power of the Holy Spirit and the Blood of Jesus Christ. Grant it, Lord. I commit this, myself, to You for Your service. Speak, Lord. Your servants are listening. [Genesis 18:13]
L-258 Now, in the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I take every spirit in here under my control, for the Kingdom of God's sake, for the works of It.
L-259 [Someone begins speaking in another tongue.]...?...
L-260 Now let the Holy Spirit act. Now is the things that I have said right, or are they not right? Does He remain Christ? Did He keep His promise, of, "Wherever two or three are gathered together, I'll be in their midst"? [Congregation says, "Amen."] "A little while, and the world out yonder will see Me no more, yet you will see Me, for I" (the personal pronoun) "will be with you, even in you. The works that I do, shall you also; more than this, for I go to the Father." Is it true? ["Amen."] [Matthew 18:20], [John 14:12, 19]
L-261 I see that Light hanging over the little, colored girl there. She is improving. Just remember, she is going to be well. You come from way away from here. You have to sacrifice to get here each night, but don't fear about the child. You have found grace with God. She was called, the other night. Just believe.
L-262 Here, has anybody ever seen that Light? Raise your hand if you have. You've seen a picture of It. Don't you see It? Look here. Look here. That Light, emerald color, standing right here. Don't you see That? Moving, right here.
L-263 It's over a woman. She is suffering with diabetes. She has prayed. She believes. God, don't let It leave her. She is going to miss It, as sure... Mrs. Davis, believe with all your heart. There you are.
L-264 I never seen the woman, in my life. Here is my hands before God. Ask her if those things... Is that true, lady? Wave your hands, like this, if that's true. Now Who did she touch? Not me, she is twenty yards from me. But she touched the High Priest, Jesus Christ. Just have faith. Don't doubt. Do you believe?
L-265 Here, look here again, right here. Some woman praying. She is suffering with stomach trouble, something wrong with her legs. O God! Mrs. Cotton, believe with all your heart. Receive your healing, Jesus Christ makes you whole.
L-266 God in Heaven knows I never seen the woman in my life. What did she touch? Isn't that the same High Priest? Why are you suspicious? Don't doubt. Have faith in God.
L-267 Somebody back in this district. You pray. Believe. He is God, all over.
L-268 There is a lady sitting here praying. She is not praying for herself. She is praying for her son. He has stomach trouble. He is not here. He is in another state. He is from a city called Pontiac, Michigan. [The sister cries out, "Oh!''--Ed.] Don't fear. He had an ulcerated stomach, from a nervous condition. It's left him. Amen. Your faith touched Him.
L-269 That you might know. Here sits a man here, the one that plays this guitar, ever what it is here, suffering with a stomach trouble, too. The devil thought he got by with that, but he didn't. You are healed, sir. Jesus Christ makes you well.
L-270 Do you believe with all your heart? "If thou canst believe, all things are possible."
Do you believe it? [Congregation says, "Amen."--Ed.] [Matthew 9:23]
L-271 Little fellow here sitting, praying for his wife, with his hands up. She is suffering with an asthmatic condition. If you believe that God will heal her, brother, she'll be healed. Amen.
L-272 "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever." Ask them people, I never seen them in my life. [Hebrews 13:8]
L-273 Way back over here sits another woman. She has got tumor on the breast. Oh, may she not miss it! Mrs. Patterson, accept your healing. Rise to your feet, give glory to God. All right. I never seen the woman, in my life; God in Heaven knows that.
L-274 What about on them stretchers down there? How about the woman there? Hold your head down, the woman. There sits a woman sitting there, she is on a cot. Do you believe me to be His prophet, His servant? There is a Light hanging over that lady. She is suffering with a heart trouble. If you lay there, you'll die. Rise up, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Take up your bed and go home, and you'll get over your heart trouble.
L-275 Do you believe God? How many of you believe Him? [Congregation rejoices--Ed.] Listen, my friend. A greater than Solomon is here, the High Priest that can be touched by the feeling of our infirmity. Do you believe Him? ["Amen."] If that isn't the work that Jesus Christ proved Himself to be Messiah by! Is that what the Scripture says? Say, "Amen." ["Amen."]
L-276 And by the way, you, you're facing a nervous breakdown. Get away from it. Flee for your life. Run quickly. Lay the things that's in the past in the past, and look to God. You're a minister of the Gospel. You, I talked to you this morning. You didn't know what it was, and I didn't know what it was, but I see it now. You are coming to a breakdown. The devil is putting everything in your mind, trying to get you to turn against, even against me. That's right. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD. Forget it. Tell him he's a liar. Accept it right now, and that will leave you and it'll never come back again. You'll be a free man.
L-277 I challenge you to believe these things! The man come to me this morning, asking. I didn't know, but I see it. Right here it is before him, look at that dark shadow just moving in and out. But now the thing has left him. That's right. Hallelujah. "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever." [Hebrews 13:8]
L-278 While the Holy Spirit is here, here is handkerchiefs. Let's pray, while you hold in prayer.
L-279 Heavenly Father, we are taught in the Bible, that they taken from the body of Saint Paul, handkerchiefs and aprons, unclean spirits went out of people, and they were healed. And while we are conscious of Your Presence here, we realize that we're not Saint Paul, but You're still Jesus. And it wasn't him, in the beginning, it was You; the faith in the people, when they seen him prophesy and knowed that God was with Him. Lord, You honor the people's prayers again today, by the same means.
L-280 One writer said, "When Israel was on its road to the promised land, that the Red Sea cut them off, right in the path of duty, to the promised land. And God looked down through that Pillar of Fire, with angry eyes; the Red Sea got scared, moved back, and Israel went on to the promised land."
L-281 God, tonight, the people wants that promise, "I would above all things that you would prosper in good health." And sickness has cut them off. May You look down tonight through the Blood of Jesus Christ, and as these handkerchiefs are laid upon the sick, in commemoration of this great anointing of the Holy Spirit, of Christ manifesting Himself here beyond a shadow of doubt, the same Jesus showing us that He is still alive and raised from the dead. May the sickness get scared with these tokens are laid upon the sick, may he run back and move away, and the people be healed, through Jesus Christ's Name. [III John 1:2]
L-282 Quietly. The Bible is right. And if Jesus is willing to come here and make this so manifested to you, so perfectly, beyond any realm of psychology, beyond any realm of emotion, a perfect miracle! A miracle is something that cannot be explained. I can see where a man could be a--a little lame in his foot, and could jump up, and under an emotion. Right. But who could tell him what he has done, and where he has come from, and what's happened, and what will be? And I challenge you; it's never missed a time, in the tens of thousands times thousands, around the world. Not a...
L-283 We got a lot of impersonations, I know that. That has to come, carnal impersonations. But that don't... That just makes the real Thing shine better; that makes Jesus Christ real.
L-284 Here He is tonight! He is in our midst, the same Holy Spirit that you received, and He lets you speak with tongues and do the things that you've done. That same Holy Spirit giving you that Sodom sign, to get out of that kind of stuff, the hour of burning of this world is at hand. A bomb lays yonder with a number on it. Flee to Christ, quickly.
L-285 He also said, in the Scriptures, the last words that fell from His lips, "These signs shall follow them that believe. If they lay hands on the sick, they shall recover." Do you believe that? [Congregation says, "Amen."--Ed.] [Mark 16:17]
L-286 I'm going to see if you believe it? I wonder if we could run a good, old-fashion, Arkansas fast line here, for a minute. Would you believe it? Would you like to see that, hands laid on you? Would you like to have that? [Congregation says, "Amen."--Ed.]
L-287 I don't know how we'll govern it. I doubt if we could do it. Do you doubt it? Do you think we could? [Brother Samuel Johnson says, "I believe we can. Amen."--Ed.] I don't know how we will. But we can try, if you'll be reverent.
L-288 Let those that's in there... What? Section by section. All right, let those that are in the back there, that's holding those prayer cards, step right out front in that line there. Right section.
L-289 Now I want you to know, my brethren, sisters, that you don't have to wait for some special evangelist to come by. No, no. Your pastor has the same. Now, he--he--he may not be able to--to have that prophetic gift; that comes one in a generation. But, look, he has the same rights to pray for you that I would. That discernment doesn't heal you; it only brings you God conscious, that you're in the Presence of God.
L-290 But evangelist goes in town, does all the praying, all the baptizing; then the people, when he leaves, the pastor is... Well, the people think their pastor is nothing. Your pastor is a man of God. He has led you safe this far; he can take you on. He is an instructed man of God.
L-291 And I want you, each one of you, if you come through this prayer line and you don't believe this, stay out of it; you'll get worse. But if you'll really believe it, when you pass under anointed hands of God, I want you to go home testifying to the power of God; leave out of here, shouting and praising God, that it's all over. I want you to do it.
L-292 I want these pastors to help me. Oh, Brother Moore, and Brother Hooper, and many of these brothers here that I know, and these fine bunch of pastors here, just stand and just form me a little line right along here. This is the way we did it. I haven't done this for years. But while the Holy Spirit is still on me, (I just seen something happen just then), while He is still here, and while I can, and while... They have the same anointing and the same authority. That's all. We're going to lay hands on the sick. And the Bible said, "They lay hands on the sick, they shall recover." The Bible said so. That's God's Word. Come out here, brethren, come out here and form you a line right along here. I'm going to stand with these brothers.
L-293 Now, when you come out, you people in this place, as you go out, go right out around the building, come right back in again. And now I'm going to ask someone to stand here, maybe that little brother here, the little... Come here, and you check these lines, if you will, or some brother that can stand here and call them by sections.
L-294 Let the ministers now, the ministers, anointed servants of Jesus Christ, just stand right along here.
[Someone says, "Brother Jackson and Brother Ruddell."]
L-295 I've got a couple of brothers here that's from Jeffersonville, some of my associates from little sister churches from the Tabernacle. Brother Don Ruddell, great success in praying for the sick. Don, are you here? Brother Junior Jackson, a Methodist preacher I just baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ. He received the Holy Ghost. This other was a church of God minister. I want you brethren that prays for the sick, around the Tabernacle, come, stand in this line with these brothers.
L-296 That's all right, isn't it, brother? That's okay, isn't it? Sure. [The brethren say, "Sure!"] Yeah. All right, come, stand around.
L-297 Where is Brother Wilber Collins at? Another minister, Methodist minister, just received the Holy Ghost, and baptized. I'd like for him to come.
L-298 His little boy, the other day, was dying with--with a rheumatic fever, and the doctor said don't even let him to raise his head high enough to put a tube in his mouth. I come from Tucson, to preach The Seven Seals. And when he did, he picked that baby up out of the bed and brought it over there. And no more than got in, and the Holy Spirit said, "THUS SAITH THE LORD. Take the baby home, he is healed. He will play with my little boy." Here is the brother standing right here now. His wife is in here.
L-299 I guess Mike is sitting here, himself. Right. Where you at, Mikey, where you at? And the doctors... There he is; a mystery. The doctor said bring... The health authorities run that child in. The doctor went and examined him; he scratched his head, said, "There ain't one speck of it in him."
L-300 What is it? Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever!
L-301 Friends, the reason I called these man. They are ministers. They are pastors. They are man that's called to pray for the sick, the same as I am or any other man. And I want you to know that your pastor has authority to do this. You don't have to wait for Oral Roberts, or Jack Jones, or me, or nobody else. Jesus Christ is omnipresent; you believe Him. Your pastor is called to do that. If you never been baptized; after this meeting, consult your pastor, get right with God. If you ain't received the Holy Ghost; go to his church, he'll instruct you on what to do.
L-302 Now as you pass through, pray. And I want each person in here, each individual, I want you to pray. I want you to just march through the line. I'm going to stand right here with this bunch of man, laying hands on these people. This pastor is going to stand here and call the rows. And when you pass by, and these anointed hands... I'm going to pray for you now, and they're going to pray for you.
L-303 And when they lay their hands upon you, remember, it's, you are just as healed as you would be saved. The Bible, It said, "Repent, and be baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ for remission of sin, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost." That's God's promise. He will do it if you believe it. But if you don't believe it, it won't work. And He said, "These signs shall follow them that believe if they lay their hands on the sick, they shall recover." It's done, when they lay their hands on you, if you believe it. [Acts 2:38], [Mark 16:17]
L-304 Do you believe it? [Congregation says, "Amen."--Ed.] Do you believe, tonight, that you've seen just as much real as that mother deer could produce, to see Jesus Christ manifest Himself among us? If you believe He is here, say, "Amen." ["Amen."] Then, here He is.
L-305 Let us bow our heads now. Now here is my prayer for you, with all my heart.
L-306 Heavenly Father, I love You. You're my Life. You're my hopes, my God, my King, my Healer, my Keeper. Not only that, but I express the feelings of every believing Christian in here, that's what You are.
L-307 Here stands man, some of them standing here themselves, sick. I know they are. I seen Your Spirit hanging over them, a few moments ago. Knowing them sick ministers, but their heart goes for their congregation, the people; forfeiting their own place, to stand here in the prayer line, to pray for their sheep. God, bless that man, bless each one of them.
L-308 As we stand here as Your representative, tonight, of this Truth, Bible Truth, may each one of these man be so anointed, and the Holy Spirit will... When they lay their hands upon the people, that there be such faith strike that person until they will accept the God-given gift of healing that You've promised them, Lord. And may each one come through, be so charged with expectation, that they will know that they're passing beneath the shadow of the cross, where the Blood of Jesus Christ atones for their confession, and His great august Presence here with us now, that proves that He is not dead, He has raised from the dead, and a living among us. Then our hearts will burn as we go to our different homes, tonight, saying, "Did not our hearts burn within us, as He spoke to us along the way?" I ask that Your Power will give such faith in these next few minutes, to these sick people, that there will not be a feeble person in our midst. [Luke 24:32]
L-309 I challenge every devil that has these people bound, upon the authority of God's Word, and the Presence of Jesus Christ Who shed His Blood, to make every Word a reality to every person that would believe. Satan, you are defeated, your time is at hand, leave these people, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Come out from them! We move the act of God, by laying hands upon the sick, and they shall recover.
L-310 Samuel, sing Only Believe. Start the prayer line. [Brother Samuel Johnson begins singing Only Believe--Ed.] Everybody in prayer now. Everybody, prayer.
L-311 [Brother Branham and the ministers pray and lay their hands on the people as they walk through the prayer line, while Brother Johnson continues to lead the congregation in singing Only Believe many times.]
Our hearts in Christian love;
The fellowship of kindred mind
Is like to that Above.
When we asunder part,
It gives us inward pain;
But we shall still be joined in heart,
And hope to meet again.
L-312 Heavenly Father, in the Name of the Lord Jesus, may this, these contact with each others hands, ministering brothers, that the Word of God. Grant that the virtue that raised up Christ from the dead, and has kept Him with us for these two thousand years, may it bind... []... souls for Eternity, and may It heal the sickness in our midst, And may the Name of Jesus Christ...?... These handkerchiefs and these parcels, may the power of God rest on them, through Jesus Christ's Name. Amen.
L-313 Now let the entire congregation, that believes with all your heart, that Jesus Christ has, will keep His Word... If He kept His Word for two thousand years, and said this would happen at the end time, and here it's happened, He will keep His Word that said, "If they lay their hands on the sick, they shall recover." Do you believe it? Do you accept it? Then let's raise our hands together and give God praise. [Brother Branham and congregation praise God--Ed.]

63-0630E - Branham Tabernacle, Jeffersonville, IN (Paragraphs: 238 - 239)
L-239 And as long as the denomination, your excuses, try to shadow that Seed that you know actually lays there, you're taking the part of Lot. Throw them things away, and let the Gospel Light shine in upon there, the power of Jesus Christ. Yes. Keeping the Light off of it, will keep it from living. For, if the Light ever gets to it, it will spring forth to Life.
That's the reason the people say, "Don't go to some of them kind of meeting." They're afraid some of the Light will strike one of their members.

63-0721 - Branham Tabernacle, Jeffersonville, IN (Paragraphs: 169 - 198)
L-170 Now, now I'm going to look down this prayer line. So far as I know, unless it's this man right here, I know him; and I know that, I know Gene Slaughter down there, I know him; outside of that... and I don't know what's--what they're standing there for. I have no idea what they're there for. God does know. And now if you all know that I know nothing about you, raise up your hands, you standing there. Now, how many in this audience knows that I know nothing about you, raise up your hands. Now how many is conscious that Jesus Christ knows about you?
L-171 And how many will be willing to say this? I believe [Congregation says, "I believe"--Ed.] with all my heart ["with all my heart"] that Jesus ["that Jesus"] healed me ["healed me"] when He was crucified ["when He was crucified"] at Calvary ["at Calvary."]. That's right. See? Now, if He has already done it, then it's your faith to accept it. Now, He cared enough to do it, do you care enough to lay aside every doubt, and believe it? Cast your cares on him, for He cares for you. [I Peter 5:7]
L-172 Now, if you're sick, if you're afflicted, I have seen, well, you know, tens of thousands times thousands of things that the Holy Spirit has done. And you know that; spastic, even to being dead.
L-173 A man dropped dead right here on the platform, right here in front of us, about three weeks ago. His wife is a registered nurse sitting here. And the man went right down. He's sitting here somewhere. Here's his wife sitting here now, and--and here he is up here somewhere now. Yeah, here he's standing right here. Eyes went back, turned dark like that, right... fell, and I went down. She examined him, no heart, no pulse. I put my hands on him (he was gone) and just called for his spirit, in the Name of Jesus Christ, and he rose up. See? See?
L-174 What is it? He is the Resurrection and Life. Wasn't me. That was the Comforter that acted, the Holy Spirit making intercessions for us. See? We've accepted Him, now it's up to Him to make intercessions. Then how much could I... Could God save you against your will? Certainly not. He can't heal you against your will. You got to believe it.
L-175 Now, what would be this, if--if He can prove, if God will let me by a Divine gift show you that Jesus Christ is here with us, that this Comforter is Jesus Christ, He's the Word. "In the beginning was the Word." Is that right? "The Word was God. And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us." And the Bible said, in Hebrews 4, that "The Word of God is sharper than a two-edged sword, a Discerner of the thoughts of the heart." Is that right? And that's what Jesus did to prove He was the anointed Word, Messiah. Oh, my! Don't you see that? What is Messiah? The anointed One. The anointed what? The anointed Word! "And the Word was made flesh." He was that anointed Word! You see that, Brother Vayle? See, He is the anointed Word! [John 1:1, 14]
L-176 And now when you commit yourself to Him, then He uses you beyond what you know, proving He's still the anointed Word, a Discerner of the thoughts of the heart. Oh, how, how can anyone doubt? Just believe. Don't doubt. And now you sitting out there, I--I hit that subject this morning. When a little woman cared that she wasn't going to get in the prayer line, perhaps, but she touched the border of His garment and He turned around. Do you believe that? You believe it can be done again today? Yeah. Now, how would you touch it?
L-177 The Bible said He's the High Priest, right now a High Priest, sitting at the right hand of the Majesty of God, to make intercessions upon our confession. We confess we believe Him, and we want to touch the High Priest. And we touch Him, how would He act? He's here in the form of the Holy Ghost. Then He'd speak right back through and tell you just exactly. Is that right? Now you believe that and just keep seated, keep quiet, keep reverent and watch. Now, if He'll just do it at least three times, that'll be sufficient, won't it? Three times, if He'll do it. One, two, three, if He'll do it.
How do you do? [Hebrews 4:15], [Romans 8:34]
L-178 Now, just a moment while we just pray. See, this is, I don't... This is something that's a little different right now; been preaching, and then turn to this. Now, I haven't called on the Lord for this for a long time, but Lord God knows my heart, and may He grant your request. And I'm believing it, that He'll do it.
L-179 Now, here stands a woman, we are strangers to each other. Far as I know, I never seen her in my life. She might have set in some audience somewhere or knowed me by some literature, but the Heavenly Father knows, as far as I know, I never laid eyes on her in my life. She's a stranger.
L-180 Now, if He's the same, here's a man and a woman meeting here like Jesus met a woman at the well, that I talked about a while ago. He cared for her. Now, this woman perhaps are not guilty of the same thing the woman was, but there's something wrong. But He cares just as much about her as He does that woman. See, He cares. Now, and when she saw it, she recognized it. Now here both of us standing here like this. Now, I never seen her.
L-181 Now, if the great Holy Spirit, the Unseen, now if the senses of faith will declare Him to me. He's brought the senses of faith, and His Word has brought it so close in this last days till He's got the picture of It there. He's brought it so close to our senses, anointed, has went away and seen Him come in here and move around in that form of a Pillar of Fire. Hasn't He? Now He's here, I know He's here. My faith says He's here. Now if He can just materialize Himself enough in here to catch this woman's life, see, as He promised He would do. The Holy Spirit would do the same work He did.
L-182 Now I, being I been preaching, I just want to talk to you a minute in order just to see.
L-183 Like He did the woman at the well, He said, "Bring Me a drink." You know, He was just... He was probably sitting there thinking about them going away getting food, and then He--He had to talk to her a minute, you know. The Father had sent Him up there. He had to. He was going to Jericho; and He went up to Samaria, that's up on the mountain, He had "need go by there." [John 4:7]
L-184 Well, somehow or another, I had need, the Father sent me from Arizona, here, and you come in. So it's all just the same thing. Nothing happens by chance, it all happens for some reason. Grace of God, is right.
L-185 Now, not knowing you, and you look real healthy, and it might not be that you're here for. It might be something else. It might be some loved one, it might be domestic, financial. I have no way of knowing, you know that. But if He'll explain to me what you're here for, you'll know whether it's the truth or not. And will the audience believe with one heart then? Now you hear us, and it's taped, and we're just standing here on the platform.
L-186 The lady, I see her holding her head up like this. She's got, she has headaches that's bothering her, like migraine headaches. It's persistent headaches coming all the time. That it true. If that's right, raise up your hand. See? That's right. Another thing, she has a thyroid trouble, that she's been told, anyhow, that's--that's bothering you, and he's right, it's a thyroid. And then you just have complications, just many things wrong with you; nervous, upset, get flusterations, "sometimes wonder where I'm standing, and whether I'm in or out." And that's right. It's the truth. Now, He knows you, you couldn't hide now if you had to. See? You believe He can tell me what you, who you are? Well, Viola, you return home, Jesus Christ makes you well.
Do you believe?
L-187 I know not. Jesus Christ knows all things. It's another stranger to me. God knows both of us. Do you believe me to be His prophet, His servant? Do you believe these things that I've preached out of this Word is the Truth? You do? If the Lord Jesus will tell me what you're here for, you believe me to be His servant. And He's doing this because He cares for you. He, His care is for you, He's doing that because He cares for you. He's caring for these others that's come in the line. He cares for them. You've had trouble, an accident, automobile accident. You're all shook up about it. That's right. You got trouble with your limb. That's right. It's going to get well, and the nervousness is going to leave you, so just go ahead home, thanking the Lord, and saying, "Praise the Lord!"
"If thou canst believe, all things are possible." All right. [Mark 9:23]
L-188 Do you believe? I don't know you, you're a stranger to me. But God knows you. Do you believe He can tell me the reason that you're here, or something another about you? Would you believe it? [The woman says, "Yes"--Ed.] There's another woman. Wasn't you, see. No, it isn't. It's you, you're here for somebody. You're for some, it's your mother. That's right. She's got something wrong with her limb, too. That's right. She isn't here. She's near a place look like, looks to me like English, about, somewhere down here. You, that's right, do you believe? All right, go on. She's healed. Just go on.
L-189 There was two women. One of them was much older, so I--I wondered where it was at. I looked to see where--where it was at. The Lord God knows all things, doesn't He? And He can do all things. Do you believe that? Amen. Isn't He wonderful? I love Him. He, He's my Life. He's all that I have. He's all that I want. Just go ahead, He made you well, sir.
L-190 The anointing followed that lady. There's another lady sitting there that's bothered with nervousness, and she's got a growth under her arm. Is that right? When she put her hands on you then, you felt a real funny feeling. Wasn't that right? That's when He healed you. You're going to be well. Jesus Christ. Look where she's at. The woman that was praying, or here, see. Did you notice when she was praying, I was praying for her, what happened? See? I seen another woman, and I looked that way. There was a great feeling. They must know one another, something, or they're acquainted with each other, 'cause that woman was having a feeling for this woman here. And then this woman goes down and touches her, and, when she did, I looked and I seen something yonder, and there she was standing right there. I never seen that woman in my life. God in Heaven knows that. Oh, my! Why would you doubt?
L-191 If thou canst believe, He could even take habits away from you. Do you believe that? Do you believe He'll make you whole? Go ahead, and you'll stop it right now and never smoke another one. Go on, and believe with all your heart. Have faith in God. Don't doubt.
L-192 Are you believing? Have we had three yet? Have faith in God. Don't doubt. Just believe. You believe there is anointing is here now? [Congregation says, "Yes. Amen."--Ed.] Amen. Don't doubt. Believe!
L-193 I'm going to lay hands on you, and believe. Will you believe with me? [The man says, "Yes, sir."--Ed.] In the Name of Jesus Christ, let this brother be healed. Amen. Have faith now, don't doubt. Just a moment.
L-194 There's something happened back out there in the audience and I couldn't see it, it's right back in here. I think it's hid from me right now. Here it is. I see it in a shadow. It's a man, and he's suffering with nervousness. He's got a boy that's got epilepsy. Believe with all your heart, sir. Do you? That's it. All right, lay your hand on that boy there and he'll be all right. Amen. Praise the Lord.
L-195 Are you believing? That Devil thought he could hide from that, but he failed it. Do you believe? That thing is still moving somewhere. Oh, my, for grace and care! There's another epileptic here somewhere. Yeah, here it is right here. You believe? Have faith. You believe God knows you? You can go back to Ohio, be made well, Mr. Nelson T. Grant. That's your name. If you'll believe, them things will leave you and never bother you no more. I never seen the man in my life, don't know nothing about him.
You can't hide it now, the Holy Spirit is here!
L-196 Let's just bow our heads and give praise to God. Lord Jesus, we thank You. You are the same yesterday, today, and forever. Your grace never fails, Lord, it's the same all the time. I pray that Your great mercy and goodness will rest upon the people. You cared enough, Lord, to come and vindicate Yourself. You are God. You are the great Holy One, the great Holy Spirit. Now may these people believe, Lord, as they pass through here, and every one of them be healed. As Your anointing is here, I lay myself across these handkerchiefs. I pray, Lord, that You'll grant these requests, Father. Grant it, Lord, both here in the audience.
L-197 And may every person that's in Divine Presence care enough now to believe that You cared enough to raise up in the last day among Your people, and to prove! You can't heal them, Lord, You can't do what You've already done. You already healed them. And this is the only thing that can be done, to make them believe. And You care enough, although as much unbelief that we stagger through, You still care enough to show Yourself alive and raised from the dead, among us. May we cast our cares on Thee, and every person in Divine Presence be healed, both of their soul and body. Through Jesus Christ's Name. Amen.
L-198 All right, come right through this a-way, let the people come right along this. All right, Billy will call them, section by section. Don't, now let's not talk no more, the--the anointing's on me, see. I want to lay hands on him while This is here. See? I can't stop on that discernment. If I do... How many's here to be prayed for, raise up your hand. About seventy percent. See? It's right now ten minutes to one. The baptismal service coming up after this. I can't do it, but you can believe. If He cares enough to show Hisself, you ought to care enough to believe. Is that right? All right, let the whole audience pray. And Billy or Brother Neville, one, will use these, will use this microphone. Let's keep our heads down and pray while they pass through the line. Now, I'm going to pray for every one of you now, lay hands upon you and ask that every possessed that you have, of evil, will pass from you as you pass under this anointed spot just now, if I have to put it like that. The anointing's back there the same as it is here. But I make it for your faith, say that. Everybody pray now.
