64-0409 - National Guard Armory, Birmingham, AL (Paragraphs: 195 - 260)
L-196 Lord God, You identify Yourself, in all ages, God. You was God in sundry time Who spoke to the fathers through the prophets, in this last days through Your Son, Jesus Christ; Who we love and believe, and know that He is the same yesterday, today, and forever, as He has promised.
L-197 Now, Father, such a wonderful crowd, fine faith. It's easy to speak to them. But, O Lord, may that faith just move up now, just into another cycle now, step right outside of the human thinking. They have heard this. They've been taught that by their pastors. They, they've looked for it, for years and years, to come. And now we pray, Father, that You'll make it known to us, tonight, that You are not dead, but You are alive forevermore; and living among Your people, as the Lily in the valley, amongst all the other flowers, the flower fairest of ten thousands.
L-198 Now we pray, O Lily of the Valley, that You'll come to us, tonight. Make Yourself known among us, to identify Yourself in this age. For it's promised, I've just told them the Word, that in the last days, as Sodom and Gomorrah, so would the Son of man reveal Himself as He did at Sodom and Gomorrah; before the promised Son come to the elected, and destruction came to the rejected. So I pray, Father, that they'll understand this. And may You come and keep Your Word, which I know You will. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
L-199 Now, I believe Billy said he give out some cards. Is that right? Raise up your hands if there is cards give out. What is the letter on them? [Someone says, "B."--Ed.] B. All right, B. Let's right quick now...
L-200 I'm going to ask you one thing, if you'll just sit real still now. Don't move around. Just give us ten minutes. Will you do that? Just ten minutes, if everybody will sit just perfectly quiet for ten minutes. Don't move around. All right.
L-201 Let's start from number one. Who has B, number one? Right quick now, raise your hand. If you can't...
L-202 The man was moving on a cot, see what his prayer card number is, if it. See, you got a prayer card? You, you don't have one? All right. [Someone says, "It's four."--Ed.] All right.
L-203 Number one, did I miss it? [Someone says, "Here."--Ed.] Or maybe we'll start from somewhere else, then. All right. [Someone says, "Right here."] Oh, I'm sorry. All right. Number one, number two, three. Number two, raise up, 'cause... Stand up when, you, I call your number. Two, one, two, three, four. [Someone says, "Right here."] Four.
L-204 Five. Watch your card now. Five. Come right over here and form a little line. Five. Six, six. Seven, seven. If you can't get up now, let somebody raise your hand, we'll pick them up. All right, seven. Eight, eight, eight. Seven, eight. Now we're just... We're really running overtime now.
L-205 All right, that's all right, just let her sit there till we get ready to call her, and just put her right in the line where she belongs then. All right.
L-206 Nine, nine. Ten, ten. Eleven, eleven, eleven. Stop there, then. All right.
L-207 How many here doesn't have a prayer card, and you're sick, raise up your hands. Well, raise up your hands. How many here that doesn't know me, raise up your hand; knows that I know nothing about you, raise up your hand. All right. Now you look this a way and believe now. I... Everybody real reverent.
L-208 Now just remember, one word from Him will mean more than I could speak in a hundred lifetime. See, I could preach This. How many believes that That's the Truth? [Congregation says, "Amen."--Ed.] All right. Now, if It's the Truth, God is obligated. If that's His Word, that's His promise, He is obligated to do it. He is obligated to confirm His Word. Is that right? ["Amen."] And if He does do it, will you believe it? ["Amen."] You believe it. [Mark 16:20]
L-209 Now you can say, "Jesus? I don't look around and see Him anywhere."
L-210 Look, what if some man walked in here with nail scars in his hands, and--and stuff all over his face, and blood, and so forth? Any hyprocrite could do that. And, remember, Jesus won't come like that. When He comes like that, time will be no more. There will be no more time, when He comes like that.
L-211 But why would you know that it was Him then if He come? Because He would identify Himself by His--by His Spirit, His sign, His Life in you. "I am the Vine, ye are the branches." Now you just remember and believe that with all your heart now. [John 15:5]
L-212 Now, this your prayer line, all of them there? I--I don't know, eight or ten. All right, that's all right. Come here. Tomorrow night we'll try to pick up more. Everybody real reverent. Now just let them come, one by one, as they come.
L-213 Now, first place, I want all that's in that prayer line, that knows that I don't know you, the little prayer line here, that knows that I don't know you, raise up your hands; know that I know nothing about you, know nothing of, know not what's wrong with you, have no idea. All right.
L-214 Now, real reverent, now just remember where we're standing. The Word has been read.
L-215 Now, remember, I cannot heal no one; no other man can heal no one. But your faith, in what is Christ, is what does the healing. Now if He'll make Hisself known here like He did, identify Himself like this as He did in the other days, would you know Him by that? [Congregation says, "Amen."--Ed.] That's the only way He said He would identify Himself. That's the only way He ever did identify Himself. And He's the same yesterday, today, and forever.
L-216 So now here is a woman, just like Saint John 4. Jesus met a woman at the well; just referred to her a few minutes ago. Here is a man and a woman. I've never seen the woman. She just raised her hand, that, I never seen her and she never seen me, so we are totally strangers. She just got a prayer card, and her number happened to be called. Are you...
L-217 [The sister says, "No, you prayed for me in Hammond, Indiana. I meant, that, you don't know anything about my personal life, though."--Ed.]
L-218 She said, one time in Hammond, Indiana I prayed for her, but, said, for her personal life, I know nothing about her, know nothing. Don't know what you're here for, or nothing. Of course, there is hundreds of people in prayer lines, that I might have been in meetings, and so forth, like that. But I mean, that, I know I don't... God in Heaven knows, this Bible over my heart, I'd never remember that, somebody in the distance like that, somebody been prayed for maybe years ago. Hammond, Indiana, that was a long time ago, many years ago when I was in Hammond, Indiana, eight or ten years ago. So now just...
L-219 Now if the Lord Jesus will reveal to me what you're here for now, that would make Saint John 4 exactly right. Whatever was in your heart, then the Word discerns the thought that's in the heart, like Jesus did the woman at the well. Would you believe that to be true then? [The sister says, "Yes."--Ed.] You would?
L-220 Would the audience believe it to be true? [Congregation says, "Amen."--Ed.]
L-221 Now here is my hand on the Bible, that I never remember the woman, wouldn't have no idea. And she raised her hand, too, I wouldn't know what she was here for. Said she saw me in Hammond, Indiana, that would be... You--you, every one, might have been there, for all I know. I wouldn't know, just at the meeting.
L-222 But now may the Lord Jesus grant this, if He will. I don't say that He will.
L-223 Now I take every spirit under here, under my control, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Now be real reverent.
L-224 If you're not a believer, I wouldn't advise you to stay in the building, 'cause diseases go one to another. We know that. So does afflictions. Many has been in meetings before and seen that happen.
L-225 Now I just want to talk to you like our Lord did that woman. Now, see, you are standing there, needy. And, you, you're probably a Christian. I don't know you are. He'll tell me if you are. And, then, I'm a Christian. Now it's two, together, a man and woman. And, then, the Spirit of God here with a gift, to let you know what you are talking to Him about, what you're saying. It might be financial. It might be domestic. I don't have any idea. But whatever it is, you'll know whether it's the truth, or not, if He reveals it.
L-226 It's a tumor. If that's right, raise up your hand. Now you believe? Now watch. You want me to tell you where the tumor is at? It's in your throat. [The sister says, "Yes."--Ed.] If that's right, wave your hand like this. Now you believe? ["Yes, sir."] All right. Go on your road, just thanking the Lord, that you--you believe that.
L-227 Come. We are strangers to each other, I suppose, lady. [The sister says, "Yes."--Ed.] We don't know each other, but God knows both of us. Do you believe God can reveal to me your trouble? Would it help you? ["Yes."] Cause you to believe?
Be real reverent, real reverent.
L-228 Now, remember, there was a woman one time that didn't get any prayer card, we'll say. She went through the... touched the border of His garment. And when she did, Jesus turned around and said, "Who touched Me?" Is that right? [Congregation says, "Amen."--Ed.] [Mark 5:30]
L-229 She had a blood issue. She said, within herself, "If I can touch that Man, I'll be made well." And she touched Him. And she...
He said, "Who touched Me?" [Mark 5:30]
L-230 And, why, even Peter rebuked Him, said, "That would sound like You was a mental case or something." Said, "My! Why, everybody is touching You."
L-231 He said, "Yeah, but I got weak. I perceive that virtue went from Me." He turned around and looked over the audience till He found that woman. And He told her what her blood issue was, that it was healed. You remember that? [Congregation says, "Amen."--Ed.] [Mark 5:30-33]
L-232 Now the Bible said, "Today," let the ministers answer this for us, "that He is the High Priest right now that can be touched by the feeling of our infirmities." Is that right? [Ministers and congregation say, "Amen."--Ed.] [Hebrews 4:15]
L-233 You just take of Him. Say, "Lord God, that preacher don't know me. And let me touch Your garment. Would You speak through him?" If He's the same yesterday and forever, He'll act the same way. He's in human flesh now, acting out, redeeming His people.
L-234 Now just pray now, believe with all your heart. Don't doubt. Don't doubt one thing. Believe all things. Just believe with everything that's within you. Believe.
L-235 Now I want to just--just to contact your spirit, lady, just to talk to you. Do you believe that these things are true? You believe that the Lord Jesus could reveal to me what you're here for? You also have tumor. That's right. Do you believe He can reveal to me where it's at? It's in the female glands. [The sister says, "Yes."--Ed.] And what gland it's in, it's in the womb. That's right. ["Yes."] All right. Believe now, go, with all your heart have faith.
L-236 Now here is a man. A man once came to the Lord Jesus, and his name was Simon, now, and he was called Peter; Jesus told him who he was and where he come from, or what about it. Now if the Lord Jesus can reveal to me what you're here for, will you believe that? You know it'd have to be the truth, if--if you know whether it's the truth or not. But, you, you believe me to be His servant. [The brother says, "That's right. I know it."--Ed.] You know. Thank you, sir. Thank you. May the Lord help you now to believe that with all your heart.
L-237 It's this little thing here, I just was trying to get it wound up all right. [Brother Branham adjusts the microphone--Ed.]
L-238 Now as you look this way again. Yes, sir. You should be facing a operation for a rupture. That's right. Also, hernia, you have a hernia. Do you believe I can tell you who you are? You believe it? You're a reverend, you're a--you're a minister, 'cause I see you at the pulpit. And your name is Wallace. [The brother says, "Uh-huh."--Ed.] Believe with all your heart. ["Glory!" Congregation applauds.] God bless you. ["That's twenty years ago, in Pensacola."] Well, my, my! All right. Have faith now. Don't doubt. Just have faith. Believe now.
L-239 Now we are strangers to each other. God knows us both. Do you believe that the Lord God can tell me something about you, what you're here for, or something? I'm kind of rushing, because the people are--are crowded up, you know. It's... Do you believe that He can reveal to me something wrong with you? [The sister says, "Yes, sir."--Ed.] You do. And you know that feeling that struck you, just then, couldn't be from me. That's Him. ["Yes."] Makes you feel real, like sweetness, humbleness. ["That's right."] And, That, did you ever see the picture of that Light? ["Yes."] Why, It's exactly what's around you right now.
L-240 Now the lady is moving back from me. She is suffering. I see her, she is kind of crippling up. And she's got arthritis, that'll... [The sister says, "Yes."] That's right. If that's right, raise up your hand. ["Yes."] That's right. Then you also have a thyroid trouble. ["That's right."] You're suffering with thyroid. ["That's true."] That's true. And then you have a heart troubles, that's botherings from your heart. ["Yes."] That is true, too. ["That's true."] You're not from here. You're from some other kind of a country where there's a lot of... You're from a way away. You're from Pennsylvania. ["Yes, sir, I am."] That's right, come down here. Now go home and be well. Jesus Christ heals you, makes you well.
Come. Have faith now. Don't doubt.
L-241 Now don't, don't move, please don't. Just a little bit now, we'll... if you'll just give me one more. Give me this case and then we'll stop, if you'll just let me have this case. Don't move, please don't. I know I'm helding you real long. But, see, you're a spirit, and I'm just in contact with each one of you now. See? Now have faith.
L-242 I'm--I'm a stranger to you. I don't know you. Christ knows you.
L-243 There is a man keeps coming. Oh, it's this, a--a gray-headed man sitting here, is suffering with trouble in his knees. Do you believe that God will make you well, sir, and heal you, with that knee trouble? And you believe that He'll make you well? The man right behind the--the wheel chair there, if you'll believe with all... You're suffering with knee trouble. Raise up your hand. All right. You touched Something, didn't you? You touched Him. Uh-huh. That's right.
L-244 Say, by the way, the lady sitting there next to you, the light... wife. Do you believe me, sister, so that they'll know it comes from God? Do you believe me to be His prophet? Do you believe me?
L-245 That rebound on that. [The amplification system has an auditorium acoustics echo--Ed.]
L-246 You are suffering with a blood pressure. If that's right, raise up your hand. All right, lay your hands over on him, too, 'cause he never got it too well. And then you believe with all your heart, and you both get well.
What did they touch?
L-247 Here, a lady just caught that then. She is sitting right back here, got her head down, praying. She is praying for the Lord to heal her. What she is... She is suffering, sitting right on the end of the row there. She has got a ruptured stomach that she is praying about. And you believe that God will heal you, lady? Raise up your hand. The little, dark-headed woman wearing glasses, that was praying for God to heal her. I don't know her, never seen her in my life. God knows that. If I'm a stranger to you, wave your hand, lady. That's right, I know nothing about you. Well, now, you know that that's true, isn't it? All right, Jesus Christ heals you, if you'll believe it.
L-248 Say, sitting right behind her, that lady sitting there, sitting right in behind her there, she is praying, too. Just follow that Light. Yes. Don't you see that Light hanging right there? See? See? Now look. The lady has had an operation, but what she really wants Christ to do for her is take growths off of her arm. You believe now that He'll do it? Ra-... Yes, raise up your hand. All right. If you believe it, you can have it. Just have faith, and don't doubt. Believe. I...
L-249 No, it's two different man. I thought, this man; it's this man sitting here. You believe, sir, sitting right here? You believe with all your heart? You believe God is going to heal you of that prostrate trouble, make you well? You got prostrate trouble. Wave your hand, if that's right. That's right. Your faith makes you well, sir. Jesus Christ healed you. I never seen the man in my life.
L-250 Don't you see He is here? Don't you believe Him? [Congregation says, "Amen."--Ed.] Don't you see that's Him?
L-251 Now wait just a minute. The... Oh, yeah. I don't believe He told you nothing about yourself, did He? Do you believe that He can do it? You believe that I can do it, through His grace and power? Will it be His promise? You're suffering with something wrong with your neck. You had a fall, and that's what did it. That's right. Go back now, you're going to be well. Jesus Christ make you well.
L-252 Do you believe, everybody believes now with all your heart? [Congregation says, "Amen."--Ed.] Now how many believers is there here? Raise up your hand. All over the building, up. All right, you believe. Now right quick... We're really, about pretty near a half hour over time. You do this right now. Jesus said...
L-253 Do you believe He's the same yesterday, today, and forever? Do you believe He promised to do this in this day? Do you believe that's the last sign that this church is going to see now before the coming of the Lord appears? Do you believe we're right at the end, all the Scriptures is fulfilled, ready for the coming of the Son? [Hebrews 13:8]
L-254 Now Jesus said, "These signs shall follow them that believe." Now you lay your hand over on somebody right next to you. Now, you're a believer. "These signs shall follow them that believe." Now if He keeps His Word, to do this, He'll keep His Word to do that, too. Now you pray for the person next to you. They are praying for you. See? Now don't you pray for yourself. You pray for the person; they're praying for you. [Mark 16:17-18]
Now let's all bow our heads while we pray.
L-255 Heavenly Father, we are grateful to see the risen Messiah. Nineteen hundred years of all kinds of theology and movements, but still, in the darkness of all of it, You promised that You would appear here in the last days, in this Sodom day, and You would make Yourself known to the children of Abraham, the called, the elected. And here You are, tonight after nineteen hundred years, You are just as much alive tonight as You was when You talked to the woman at the well. It's God manifested in flesh, now in the flesh of His Bride, for the Bride and the Husband is the same-self flesh. "These two are one." And the Church is becoming the Bride, all the time, by believing the Word, so that the Word and the Church becomes the same. The Word in the Church, making it the Bride. The last sign, God identifying Himself, the Word in the Church.
L-256 O God, these peoples who say they believe, have their hands laid on one another. They are praying. Look down from Your Glory, Lord, watch. Confirm Your Word. You said, "These signs shall follow them that believe. If they lay their hands on the sick, they shall recover." [Mark 16:17, 18]
L-257 O God, may Satan lose His hold in their faith tonight. May God come in and let them know that He has identified Himself right here among us. And Jesus Christ the Son of God is here with us now, the identified resurrected Jesus Christ, making Hisself known. First time He's done this since nineteen hundred years ago, and here He is tonight. May Satan lose his power; his unbelief fade out, and may the power of the resurrected Christ come into these people and heal every one of them. And we cast out Satan. In the Name of Jesus Christ, may he go from this people right now, that they all may be well; while they're praying, one for another, with their hands laid upon each other. Grant it, in Jesus Christ's Name.
L-258 Now just keep your hands on one another. Believe now. Keep your heads bowed, your eyes closed. Believe. I don't care where you're at, what's wrong with you; that doesn't have one thing to do. If God, after nineteen hundred years ago, stands right here, identifying Himself, raised from the dead; and taken mortal people and showing Himself, the Messiah in all ages, same Messiah doing the same thing by the same sign, He's raised from the dead. Promised He would do it just before His Second Coming and the destruction of the Gentile world! Here He is. We'll go deeper into it this week, as we go along. But you, why suffer the rest of the week, when you can be healed right now. Somebody has got their hands laid on you, you. A believer has their hands laid on you. He said these Words, "These signs shall follow them that believe. If they lay their hands on the sick, they shall recover. They'll get well."
L-259 Do you believe it with all your heart now? [Congregation says, "Amen."--Ed.] If you believe it with all your heart, and believe that Jesus Christ the resurrected Son of God, the One that'll judge you at the Judgment Bar, is here tonight in the form and person of the Holy Ghost, and is making Hisself known by His same Scriptural sign that He promised to show you, and that He was alive, here He is. If you believe that with all your heart, and accept Him as Your healer, I charge you, by His Name and through His Name, that you stand on your feet now and accept your healing in the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Stand up, if you believe it. Stand up.
L-260 That's fine. People come from cots, raised up out of wheel chairs. And that's wonderful. Now just give Him praise, everybody. Raise up your hands. Now is the time you can shout and give Him praise. Do you believe? There is people out of their wheel chair, out of their cots, and everywhere, raised up. Let's give Him praise. Everybody Just raise your hands and praise Him. [Congregation rejoices and praises God--Ed.]

64-0410 - National Guard Armory, Birmingham, AL (Paragraphs: 164 - 232)
L-165 Now be real reverent just a moment. Now it's just exactly time to close, but just wait just a moment.
L-166 Before we do that, how many believes that Jesus Christ promised to be with us, wherever two or three were gathered in His Name? [Congregation says, "Amen."--Ed.] How many believes that He is the same yesterday, today, and forever? ["Amen."] His, He would be... If He was here, tonight, He would be just as He was then. He would do the same thing. The Bible said, that, "He is the High Priest that can be touched by the feeling of our infirmities." You... Is that right? ["Amen."] New Testament, Hebrews, 3rd chapter. "A High Priest that can be touched by the feeling of our infirm-... of our infirmities." Now have faith in God. Now just believe, real, with all your heart. [Hebrews 4:15]
L-167 And you out there now, that's out in this audience, that doesn't... that's sick. How many of you is sick, raise up your hand, just say, "I'm sick." Now just real low, real quiet now, everybody.
L-168 Now you pray, say, "Lord Jesus, Brother Branham doesn't know me, but what he said tonight, 'A greater than Solomon is here,' and I know that that's prophesied to return. It hasn't been in the world for hundreds and hundreds, and thousands of years. But You promised it would return again in the last days, according to Malachi 4, and promised in Saint Luke 17 and all these other promises. You said it would be here 'when the Son of man revealed Himself,' because it has to be the Word. Cause the..." [Malachi 4:5-6], [Luke 17:28-30]
L-169 "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us." "And the Word discerns the thoughts." It was the Word in the prophets. It was the Word in the Son. It's the Word in you, today. See, the Word! It's prophesied, promised. Although you find many impersonations, many carnal competition, that doesn't take away from It, from the real. There is a real Holy Ghost, real God. [John 1:1, 14]
L-170 Now you believe with all your heart, and look this way, to me. And believe with all your heart, and say, "Lord God, I'm going to pray, and I pray that--that You will reveal to Brother Branham. And let me touch Your garment. And You turn, through him, 'cause He don't know me, and tell me what my trouble is. And then I'll know that Your Presence is here."
L-171 Friends, you know what's the matter with the Pentecostal people? They've seen too much.
L-172 An old salt, one day, was coming from the sea, and he found a writer going to the sea. And the old salt said to the--to the writer, said, "Where goest thou, my good man?"
L-173 Said, "Down to the sea. Oh, I want to smell its salty brines. I want to see its blue skies, the white clouds, the sea gulls."
L-174 He said, "I was born on it, fifty years ago. I don't see nothing so attractive about it." That's it. He had seen so much of it, till it become common.
L-175 That's what's the matter with us people. We've seen so much of God! This church that--that's been called out of the denominational groups in the last days, has seen so much of It, until It's become so common. You just overlook It.
L-176 Don't never let Christ become common to you, friend. Don't never do that. You just believe with all your heart and all that's in you. Now have faith in God.
L-177 Now just pray, and let the Lord Jesus grant it. Now you just touch His garment. I don't know. You touch Him. He can be touched.
L-178 Now just pray now. I don't say that He will do it. Just a moment would settle it all. You just--just--just kind of... []
L-179 Now, It's a Light. Don't nobody take a picture, a flash picture. Just be reverent.
L-180 Now here It is. It's over a woman sitting here looking at me, right here at the end, right there. Do you believe me to be His servant, lady? I'm a stranger to you. You don't know me. I don't know you. But if God will describe to me, just like He did to the woman, tell her about her blood issue, or--or the woman had five husbands; if the Lord Jesus will--will provide that information to you, through me, would you believe it with all your heart? You'll know whether it's the truth or not. All right. It's a bladder trouble. If that's right raise up your hand. Uh-huh! See? Now, that's exactly right.
L-181 Here, you sitting next to her. You was going to help her. You touched her with your hand. Now you were kind, now, you believe God can tell me what your trouble is? You believe that He can do it? High blood pressure. If that's right, raise up your hand.
L-182 The man sitting next to her, do you believe, sir, believe God can tell me what your trouble is? You'll know whether it'll truth or not. Varicose veins. You believe?
L-183 The little lady sitting there, kind of crying, like, your trouble is nervousness. That's exactly right. Kind of shadowed, you get weak in the daytime, you think you're loosing your mind. The devil tries to tell you that. But, you're not. It's all over, from tonight, now. See? You got the victory. It's left you. The black shadow, that was over you, has left you.
L-184 You was weeping there, sitting next to her, lady. It, it thrilled you. Now do you believe me to be His prophet, or His servant? That stumbles some people, you see. So, you, I don't know you. We're strangers. You believe God can tell me what's your trouble? All right. You have a heart trouble, kidney trouble, and you're anemia. If that's right, raise up your hand.
L-185 This little lady sitting here, kind of heavy-set, a red and dark striped dress on. She is praying. She wants to be called in this line. If that's right, raise up your hand, lady. Do you believe God can tell me what your trouble is? Your friend will be all right. The spiritual problem will be all right. And your female trouble will leave you, if you'll believe God with all your heart. Now, if that's right, raise up your hand. If that's what you was praying about, raise up your hand so the people can see what you're doing. See? All right.
L-186 You just have faith in God. Somebody back... You don't have to be sitting here on the front. Way back; believe with all your heart.
L-187 Way back there, there is a woman. She has got a growth on her side. She is praying. She is going to miss it.
Lord God, help me, I pray.
L-188 Mrs. Goodman, you believe with all your heart that God will take that growth from your side? All right. Step, raise your hand way up, so the people can see you. I'm a total stranger, never seen her. There she is. Is them things right? Raise up your hand. All right.
L-189 A lady sitting over there, out towards the end there, she is suffering with a gall bladder trouble. And she's, also, she's got a diabetes, heart trouble. Mrs. Holderfield, believe with all your heart, lady, and you can be healed there now.
L-190 Please don't move around, people. I--I ask you, in Christ's Name, don't do that. See, diseases go from one to another. See? Unbelief is the most horrible thing there is in the world. Just have faith.
L-191 Here is a little lady sitting here, praying about her husband. He drinks. That's right. You're praying that he'll stop drinking. Isn't that right? All right. I don't know you. Got a prayer card? You don't have. You don't need one; just faith that you've got. You touched Something. You are twenty or thirty feet from me. You touched the High Priest.
L-192 The little lady behind there is praying about her husband, too, sitting behind him. That's right. Your husband is a nervous man, kind of a mental nervousness. He is missing right now. If that's right, raise up your hand. And you've got something wrong with your hand. You have allergy, something another. And you touch stuff, it makes your hands go bad. Isn't that right? Mrs. Patty is your name. You believe with all your heart now? If that's right, raise up your hand. Amen. See? I've asked you to believe me.
L-193 What about this lady sitting here? You got a mark on your face, like a little skin cancer. Do you believe me to be God's servant? You do? I don't know you. You're a stranger to me. That's not exactly what you're praying about. You're praying about a heart trouble that you got. That's right. Is that right? This lady sitting here. If you'll believe with all your heart, you can have your healing. Your husband got his last night, why not you? Ex woman preacher. Now believe with all your heart, and you... Now, you see, just so you would know. You was kind of questioning in your mind, see. Now you're satisfied, aren't you, that It does? All right. Raise up your hand if that's right. Have faith in God.
L-194 What do you think of that diabetes, sir, setting here with your hand up? Do you believe that God can heal diabetes and make you well? You do? All right, sir, God can heal you.
L-195 You're a stranger to me, too. If you'll believe with all your heart! There is a man sitting there, that's got heart trouble, something wrong with his back. Mr. Easter. He was hurt in a train accident, that caused that. If that's right, raise up, Jesus Christ will heal you and make you well.
L-196 How many of you believe? [Congregation says, "Amen."--Ed.] A greater than Solomon is here. Do you believe it? ["Amen."] Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever, swept plumb across the building. Do you believe now that He's here? ["Amen."] He is right here now. That's a reality. That's exactly what He said would take place, "These things that I do, shall you also; more than this will you do, for I go to My Father." One time a woman touched Him, He got so weak, He said, "Virtue went from Me," and He was the Son of God. I'm a sinner, saved by His grace. "More than this shall you do." I know the King James says, "greater." But in original, it says, "More than this shall you do, for I go unto My Father." [Matthew 12:42], [Hebrews 13:8], [John 14:12]
L-197 Now do you believe that? [Congregation says, "Amen."--Ed.] Do you believe His Presence is here? ["Amen."] Then why not lay your hands over on one another, you believers, and pray for your fellow man sitting next to you. Each one of you lay your hands over on each other, and believe with all your heart now as you pray. Pray the way you do in church. Believe the way you've always believed. Now let that Spirit of God, that made you a Christian, be just as great and royal to you as you are praying for that person, that as that mother deer had in her being a mother, that loyal Spirit of Christ that's here now.
L-198 That, the world don't believe. The world hates It. The world don't understand It. The Bible said they wouldn't. The world knows its own.
L-199 And God knows His Own. God promised it. It's the Truth. So help me, it's the Truth! "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever."
Pray now.
L-200 Lord Jesus, here lays some handkerchiefs laying here, that's for the sick and the afflicted, and I lay my hands upon them. Because, we're taught in the Bible that they taken from the body of Paul handkerchiefs and aprons, and unclean spirits went out of the people, and they were healed of diseases. Now we're not Saint Paul, but You're still Jesus. And I pray that You'll honor these, for these people that couldn't be to the meeting.
L-201 May, when they're laid upon the people, may it come to pass, like one of the writers said when the--when the Red Sea got in the way of the children of Israel, "God looked down through that Pillar of Fire, with angry eyes, and the sea got scared because it was standing in the way of the path of duty, to believers, and the sea moved back and the--and the believers went over to the promised land."
L-202 Lord God, look down through the Blood of Your Son, Jesus Christ, tonight, upon these handkerchiefs, upon these audience here, with their hands laying on each other, praying for each other. You said, "Confess your faults one to the other, pray one for the other, that you may be healed. For, the effectual fervent prayer of the righteous availeth much." [James 5:16]
L-203 I pray, God, as the--the confessed Christian tonight is praying for the person he has his hands on, may the Power of the Holy Ghost come upon that person. May the Spirit quicken to them, Lord, the reality. May they not miss it, Lord. Let them not be like something that's going to miss it, Father. May Birmingham catch its vision now, of the Presence of the resurrected Jesus Christ, a greater than all the prophets, a greater than all the preachers, greater than all the popes or the potentates, or whatever it might be. It's Jesus Christ, "the same yesterday, today, and forever," a vindicating Himself in the last days, by His promised Word. Grant it, Lord. I pray this faith, the prayer of faith, for them, as they pray for each other. In Jesus Christ's Name, we present it to You.
L-204 Now each one of you, as you got your hands on somebody, now just close your eyes, and remember: the Christ that's promised this, has come here and vindicated Himself.
L-205 Yes, I seen a man healed right there, with TB, sitting right back here in front of me. Now if you just... It's just going on everywhere, everywhere in the building. Surely if God...
L-206 A man can tell anything; that don't make it so. But when God comes down and tells it, and vindicates it and proves it's the Truth; to disbelieve it, it's unpardonable sin. Jesus said, "It'd never be forgiven, in this world or the world to come."
L-207 The Scripture promises this, and here it is vindicated right before you. People, in the Name of Jesus Christ, receive Him while He--while He is here in the presence of us tonight, while we're with Him. Will you believe it?
L-208 And all that truly does believe it and accepts Him as your Saviour, or as your healer, will you stand to your feet to give testimony, "I'll stand as a testimony. I truly believe, and I now accept my healing, my salvation. And all my needs, in the Presence of Christ, I now accept it."
L-209 My, look over the building, almost all the congregation standing. Wonderful! That's beautiful. Now it's all over, if you'd believe it. "If thou canst believe!"
L-210 Now let us close our eyes and raise up our hands, and sing, "I love Him, I love Him because He first loved me." Let's give Him praise as we singing now, sing to Him these praises.
I love Him, I love Him
Because He first loved me
And purchased my salvation
On Calvary's tree.
L-211 Let's raise up our hands, and say, "Praise the Lord!" [Congregation says, "Praise the Lord!"--Ed.] Praise the Lord! ["Praise the Lord!"] Praise the Lord! ["Praise the Lord!"]
I love Him, (everybody) I love Him,
L-212 I think that you are to dismiss them, Brother Urshan. [Someone says, "What about the ones that wanted to be saved?"] I'll ask them to come forward.
And purchased my salvation
On Calvary's...
L-213 Now bow your head just a moment. The piano, the organist and pianist go right ahead.
L-214 I wonder, tonight, is your conviction still believing. I wonder if you believe that the God Who can tell me the secret in the heart, to prove that... He don't have to do that, now, but He said He would do it. When Jesus came the first time, He didn't have to heal, but He said He would do it. "And He did it that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet." And He does it tonight because the prophets said He would, and Jesus said He would, too.
L-215 Now I wonder if you, who wants that love of God in your heart like the--like the mother deer had for her baby, you want that love in your heart for Christ, and you believe He'd hear our prayer, would you come stand here while we pray for you. While we sing that once more, just come right up here. You make a public confession then, just walk right out and stand along here. If you believe it, prayer, my prayer will help you, you come right up while we sing this again.
L-216 "I..." Now prove you love Him, by coming. "... Him, I..." God bless you.
Because He first loved me
L-217 And come down out of the balcony, and we'll wait for you. That's right. "... my..." If you're really sincere, come on now.
... -vation
On Calvary's tree.
L-218 "I..." The people are leaving the balcony, is coming down. Everybody sing now. "I..." Just get right in the aisles, wherever, come right on.
Because He first loved...
L-219 Remember, the God that will meet you at the Judgment, has met you here in the church tonight.
... my salvation
On Calvary's...
L-220 I wonder if all the ministers here, that's interested in lost souls, that still has a vision for people in need, if you'll walk up now among the people; all you ministers in here, every minister that believes that God will still save a sinner. You might see one of the greatest things happen just now, you've ever seen. This is what the Holy Spirit likes.
I love Him...
L-221 Now prove it. Prove that you are interested, you love Him. If you love His, Him, you love His children.
... love Him
L-222 Now weave yourself right in among these people here! "... love..." Just come right on up and get among the people, right like this, and weed yourself right in and lay your hands upon them. And come right up here now, we're going to pray. I believe the Holy Spirit will be poured out upon the people, tonight, right here in the audience.
... Calvary's tree.
Oh, how I love Jesus,
Got in love with Him; you can read His Word.
And how I love Jesus,
Oh, how...
L-223 Now close the world away from you now. Close all the world away from you. See?
Because He first loved me.
Oh, how I... (wonderful)
Oh, how...
L-224 Now, ministers, get someone in your... Keep me now. Ministers come right in, move right in around the people.
Oh, how I love Jesus,
Because He first loved...
L-225 Now He is standing here. He knows everything that's in your heart. Don't you think He knows that? Right here, wasn't no secret. He knows just what's your talk, what you're meaning.
L-226 Now let's bow our heads, each one, all over the audience, you that even couldn't get here. Now let's pray.
L-227 Each one of you just confess all your wrong, confess all your unbelief. Say, "Lord Jesus, maybe I belonged to church, once. I went to church, but I never was satisfied. There was something another... Oh, I might have, I might have shouted. I might have spoke with tongues. I, I might have joined church." All those things, they are fine. I have nothing against that, but that's not what I'm talking about.
L-228 I'm talking about love of God that's really down there. That's the Holy Spirit. That's it. And you want that, something that's real seasoned, that'll make the Word of God just live through you and act through you. See, no roots of bitterness in the channel, Holy Spirit just flows right through you. That's what you want.
L-229 Now just bow your head and reverently pray. And you ministers lay your hands upon them now.
L-230 Our Heavenly Father, we're bringing to You, tonight, this audience of people that stands here making confession, knowing that they've been wrong. There are, probably, motives and objectives, too, has been wrong. But, tonight, they have come, believing, believing that You will forgive every sin. Many of them has went to church, for years. Many of them has--has done great charitable deeds. But, Lord, tonight they are wanting the reality, they're wanting that sweetness, that--that something that's they're lacking in their lives, that Holy Spirit of God that moves in there, the form of the Word.
L-231 And Your servants, the ministers, Your servants, has their hands laid upon them. And we are praying for them, this prayer, and asking, Lord, that this will be the time that not no other way but right down in their heart, it'll one time, forever, in Your Presence, be settled right now. May the Holy Ghost come into their lives just now and make them sweetened, Lord, with the--with the great Honey of Heaven. And give to them an experience that'll be an everlasting experience, that the great Presence of the living God may come boldly into their lives and will give to them that what they need just now. Grant it, Eternal God. They are Yours. I present them to You, as love gifts, and as the sacrifices as they're making here. And may the Holy Ghost just make it real to them now. God, grant it, in Jesus' Name.
L-232 Your pastor is going to pray. [The brother prays--Ed.] Yes, Lord. Yes, Lord. Grant it.

64-0411 - National Guard Armory, Birmingham, AL (Paragraphs: 165 - 226)
L-166 Oh, soldier of the Cross, that's been shocked with so much training, so many shocks of denomination and creed, and things of the world, why don't you just step off for a few minutes and go to looking around at the Bible? Might wander around, and you might find yourself identified here in the Word, as a believer, one of these days. You might not know Him. You may come to yourself, like the prodigal son did, and find yourself. You might find your identification in the Words of God.
L-167 Someone said, the other day, not long ago, said, "But, Brother Branham, look at us Pentecostal people, what fine churches we got. Why, we, we got ministers that's been trained."
L-168 Listen, when a man marries a wife, he doesn't trust in her beauty. No. He trusts in the loyalty of her vow, her word. He doesn't trust in her beauty. He trusts in her loyalty.
L-169 And that's the way when you marry to God, you don't trust in some big beautiful church you can build, but in the promise that Jesus Christ made, that, "I am the same yesterday, today, and forever." Do you believe that? [Congregation says, "Amen."--Ed.]
Let us bow our head just a moment. [Hebrews 13:8]
L-170 I wonder, tonight, in the building here where the people are setting, where there is men and women who are Eternal, Eternity-bound people, and you know that someday or other you've got to meet God. And I wonder if you had a little breath of that amnesia, and you would... You've been identified in the wrong thing, and you'd--you'd like to kind of wander around through, tonight, and find out if you can't be identified in Christ Jesus? Would you raise up your hand, say, "Pray for me, Brother Branham, I--I want to be identified as a real Christian, a real believer." God bless you. God bless you. Bless you! Oh, yes, way around. The Lord God bless you.
L-171 Somebody up in the balcony, you say, "Brother, I really believe that's the Truth. I believe, as Christians, we're not Christians like they used to be years ago."
L-172 What about you Pentecostal people, when your mothers and fathers used to stand on the street out here, and beat a old tambourine. And your mother, how she had to... she got to be weary, and struggle with you little children. Sometimes you had to go without clothes, and everything else, but dad and mother was faithful to the Cause, to hold up Christ.
L-173 Look what you Pentecostal people did. Fifty years ago, you come out of the organization. That's what makes you Pentecost, you separated yourself from the unbeliever. "And like a hog to its wallow, and a dog to its vomit," you've went right back and done the same, made the same kind of a mess you come out of. What's the matter? Spiritual amnesia broke out among the people. You got your creeds and your denominational papers now, and you're right up with the rest of them, want to be with the rest of them. You permitted your women to cut their hair, wear paint. You, you're permitting them to do all these things, permitting all this stuff in the--in the churches. What is it? Spiritual amnesia.
L-174 Then, the first thing you know, when God begins to visit amongst the people, then what happens? You can't receive it. See, you've been so sick with that amnesia, see, the only thing you've ever heard. Don't you think you ought to step off of that creed just for a few minutes and pick up the Bible, and see what a Christian is supposed to be identified like? "These signs shall follow them that believe!" [Mark 16:17]
L-175 Acts, Peter said, "Repent, every one of you, and be baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sin, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost; for the promise is unto you, and your children, and them that's far off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call." If they tell you That isn't so, then your pastor has a bad case of spiritual amnesia. He can't find hisself identified with that Church; not organization; a Church, a mystical Body of Christ. [Acts 2:38-39]
L-176 Now the Holy Ghost is here. He's here to do just exactly what He promised to do. Now while you're here with your heads bowed, just keep a praying. Let the Holy Spirit speak, Himself. And see if this... Anyone knows that, the promise, what it is for this day. Now you that's in need, tonight, you, many of you raised up your hands. Before you do that...
L-177 I wonder, while we're here and really pray for the sick, I wonder if you can get away from that unbelief, that denomination, that creed that tells you these things are not so, that one that would tell you It's of the devil. When they do that, "They will never be forgiven, in this world or the world to come." What if This is the Truth? Just think, what if It is, then where are you? See, you don't have to speak it out; just believe it in your heart. And there is people here that believe that. I've sit right here, for the last two nights, laboring under something, just, my, hold and bit my tongue, to keep from calling it right out.
L-178 And remember, friend, it's between you and God. What if it is wrong, and you thinking that? You know what happens, you'll never be forgiven for it. Spiritual amnesia, you'll go right on into your Eternal death, unbelief. "He that believeth not is condemned already!" [John 3:18]
L-179 Now pray for your sickness, say, "Lord Jesus, You promised. I..."
May be some strangers here, that's never been here before.
L-180 Jesus promised, "Like it was," I'll take one Scripture, "in the days of Lot," when God was manifested in a body of flesh; and the people, Abraham, the elected group, the called-out group. And Abram's name was changed to Abraham, then he seen the Word made flesh, and It discerned the thoughts that was in Sarah's heart.
L-181 And when the Royal Seed of Abraham come on, that's what He did, and they called Him "a devil."
L-182 He said, "Now when the Holy Ghost comes, will do the same thing." Said, "Now there's forgiveness when you call Me that, but, when you speak against the Holy Ghost, there is no forgiveness." [Luke 12:10]
L-183 Now may He, in His Power, come through this audience of people, wherever you are, and with His spiritual discernment showing that He is the Word. So that if there's any here suffering with amnesia, that they will not... will be without an excuse, before this altar call is made.
L-184 May the Lord God help. Now with your heads bowed, reverently praying.
L-185 See, there is a lady sitting here before me. She's got her hands up to her face. She is suffering with a spinal condition. And she's also got nervousness. She's got stomach trouble. And she is sitting here before me now. And she might know, she is not from this country. She is from a city called Macon. Yeah. Do you believe God can tell me who you are? You're Miss Ayers. If that's right, raise up your hand. I'm a stranger to you. That's true, isn't it? Now your trouble is over. Jesus Christ; you touched His garment. He made you whole. Now just believe it.
L-186 There is a man sitting in the back of the building. He is seeking the baptism of the Holy Ghost. He wants the baptism with the Spirit. He stands here before me. He is not from here, either. He is from Carolina, Charlotte. Lepoe is his name. Believe with all your heart, and God will fill you with the Holy Ghost, my--my brother, if you'll believe it.
L-187 Here, over to my right, here is a--a man and his wife sitting right straight in front of me here. It's an old couple, to my right. The lady is suffering with a colon condition. Her husband has heart trouble. They are not from here. They're from Tennessee. Mr. and Mrs. Thomas, if you'll believe with all your heart, raise up your hands and you can accept your healing. Jesus Christ make you well. That's exactly what He promised to do. But I never seen the people in my life.
Spiritual amnesia!
L-188 Jesus said, "The works that I do shall you also. A little while, and the world won't see me no more; yet ye shall see Me, for I," personal pronoun, "will be with you, even in you, to the end of the world." "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever." [John 14:19], [John 14:12], [Hebrews 13:8]
L-189 Now, to men and women in here, that just got something wrong with you, that you just simply can't see how... You, you want to believe, but you just can't get into it, and you would like for to be prayed for, you want to accept Him while you're in His Presence, would you come and stand right here by me, let me pray and lay hands on you. If you'd come right up here now, you that's suffering like that, with spiritual amnesia, and would want to be prayed for, that you'd be released from that. If you're not a--not a believer, but want to be prayed for, come up here and stand. God bless you, young man. Somebody else come? God bless you, lady. Come. God bless you, young lady. Somebody else come? Come, stand right up here, just now.
L-190 Spiritual amnesia, I don't want to be plagued with that. God forbid. Let me--let me die the death of a--of anything, but never let me die that death as a unbeliever.
L-191 Come, accept Him now. Won't you do it? Come from, and come down out of the balcony, friends. It's just a few steps down here, and it might mean the difference between death and Life, to you.
L-192 Look, I can't make Christ do nothing. Christ don't have to do anything but one thing: He has to keep His Word. He must do that in order to be Christ, be God. He must keep His Word.
L-193 Now remember, if you're not sure of your experience, why not come down now. If you just belong to a denomination, if you are a Pentecostal grandchild, God don't have any grandchildren. He has sons and daughters, but no grandsons and -daughters. See? God don't have that. He just has sons and daughters, and you know that you're not.
L-194 Maybe you've spoke with tongues, you might have danced, you might have done all this. That's all right. I have nothing against it. But yet if you still got that spiritual amnesia, come on down, and come here and stand here. Let's pray about it. What do you say? Church member, just a--just a nominal church member, why don't you come up here and let's get rid of it right now.
L-195 I don't want to leave Birmingham here, and know that someday, when the Judgment comes up, and I've got to stand then before you... Remember, I'm going to meet you again. If I never meet you here on this, or I'm going to meet you at the Judgment and I've got to answer for what I said tonight.
L-196 Now listen. Repent, friends! Repent, come out of it. Get out of there. Come on now.
L-197 That ought to make every bobbed-haired woman in this country, or this place, come up here now. That's exactly right. That, that you haven't got grace enough to really say, "I--I--I--I want to, I want to let my hair grow out, Brother Branham." It ought... "I've got... Well, I haven't got the grace to do it."
Why, you say, "Has that got anything to do with it?"
L-198 Here not long ago, a real great minister come to me, and said, "I want to lay hands on you, Brother Branham." Said, "Everybody regards you as a prophet."
I said, "I never said I was a prophet."
L-199 He said, "But the people regard you that. You're always tearing them women, about wearing shorts," and--and, oh, a Pentecostal man. And said, "About wearing shorts, and bobbing their hair, and things." Said, "That's not your business."
I said, "Whose business is it then?"
L-200 And he said, "Them people, why don't you teach them women how to be, have great spiritual gifts, and help people, instead of trying to..." Said, "They regard you. What you tell them, they would believe you." Said, "Why don't you tell them how to get great gifts and to help people, instead of always condemning them?"
L-201 I said, "How can I teach them algebra when they won't even learn their ABC's?" See? See?
L-202 You've got to start from the bottom, repent or perish! Now you can suit yourself, repent or perish! Jesus Christ has thoroughly identified Himself here, night after night. And this is the night we was turning over for this salvation. It's just a few steps up here, and I got plenty of time to wait. [Luke 13:3, 5]
L-203 Remember, Birmingham, your blood not upon me. I'm innocent. And if you're really got the Holy Spirit, you've got an opportunity to come now. And if you're suffering with some kind of a church-anity that's caused you to have spiritual amnesia, why don't you come? Jesus is the cure. Won't you come?
L-204 Now some people left the balcony. I was waiting to see where they were, going out or coming to the altar. These down here, come on up around. That's right. You that are here, come stand around the altar, say, "I'm finished with this." Yes, they were coming down, two ladies. That's fine.
L-205 Come right on up now. Just a few steps from it. And them steps might mean the difference.
L-206 Now, look, I want to ask you something. What if He does come tonight? "Oh," say, "He isn't coming." I don't know whether He is or not. This is the last sign. Remember, THUS SAITH THE LORD! Did you ever hear me say that but what it was true? You are seeing your last sign. That's Scriptural. You've seen your last sign, Pentecost. Don't get mixed up now with what He promised Israel after the Rapture; that ain't you. You're done, then. See? Now is your day. Now is your sign. Now is your time. Don't reject It. Don't do it. You'd better come. You believe me to be God's servant? Remember.
L-207 Birmingham, I've never met nicer people. You're the nicest people I would want to meet in my life, but you need a revival. You are dying. You're taking spiritual amnesia. You are dying. Don't do that. Revive that what you've got. Bring it up again, quickly, before Jesus comes.
L-208 All right, while they're... Keep coming. Just let them keep coming till we get all, that the Lord is calling, up here. Come now.
L-209 Get rid of that amnesia. The great Physician is here now to heal that, take it away from you. He has proved that He's here. How many will identify that, by raising up your hand, say, "I truly believe it"? And He said, if you... See? Now He is here. See? See? You believe.
L-210 And how many knows that I am telling you the truth, that you're dying and need a revival? [Congregation says, "Amen."--Ed.] See? It's truth.
L-211 You're fine people. You can't find no better. There's no better hearts beat, than under these old Southern shirts down here. That's right, real people! But, folks, you better wake up, right quick! [Brother Branham pounds on the pulpit--Ed.] In the hour that you think not, it might happen. It might not happen; I don't know.
L-212 But, remember, you're getting your last warning, so flee while you have time to flee. Come now. As long as they're coming, I'm going to keep waiting, because there might... One soul is worth ten thousand worlds. And as long as people are being convinced...
L-213 I'd like to see this break into a great big revival that would set every church around here; if you'd break up your differences and get all that selfishness away, and accept the Holy Ghost. You claimed you believe It. You claimed to believe It, and, when It comes to identify Itself, then you'll pull apart from one another. Why not join our hearts with God's Word and believe the Truth? That's what. You'll just keep on dying, dying, and you're going right on out into Laodicea. Exactly what He promised, It'll be that way. Won't you come now? Now is the day. Now is the accepted time. Watch what the Holy Spirit will do.
L-214 Now I want all the ministers here, that's interested in these people, come pray with me, too. Come up here, all ministers that's interested in these people. Come, just come right around, and get in among the people, the minister or a personal worker, a good personal worker, a women that would want to stand with these women now. I'm going to believe, with all my heart, that the Holy Ghost is going to come into this place right here now and just identify Himself all among these people.
L-215 Now let me instruct these people here, first. Now, friends, whatever you're here for, He knows. And I can prove it to you, It'll take, one by one, bring you up here on this platform, and there won't be one thing that He won't make known. Now that's been since I was a little boy. That gift is not in question. But the question is, can you receive it? Do you believe it? Now He's here. Well, if He's here, then there is only one thing, He keeps His Word. Then just believe that you receive it, and accept it, and raise up and say, "Lord God, I'm here to accept it," and just stay there until it happens.
L-216 Like Buddy Robinson said one time, in a corn field. He said, "Lord, if You don't give me the Holy Ghost, when You come back You'll find a pile of bones laying right here." He was dead earnest. And you're not going to get anything from God till you get desperate enough.
L-217 Now, have you noticed today's crop, have you noticed today what we do? We, actually, we got enough God about us till where we come up to the platform, we say, "Yes, maybe I better come up." Now this is the experience of worldwide. "Yes, I better go up and stand." Say, "Well, well, I don't know. Here I am, see." Hum! What a place to be in! There is no fire burning. There is no enthusiasm. There is not a "go into It!" And, as an evangelist, that just kills me to see God's people in that shape. We're supposed to be on fire.
L-218 But, you see, what is it? It's exactly what I told you. Revelation 3, "You're lukewarm. And," He said, "because you're lukewarm, then I'm going to spue you out of My mouth." That's right? [Congregation says, "Amen."--Ed.] That's what He said. And, if He said that, that's what He is going to do. So let's not be that crowd. [Revelation 3:16]
L-219 You're here, needy. Let's get It, or die, right here. That's right. Let's get It, or die.
L-220 Now, my dear brother, sister, if I could come down and help you do something, I'd sure do it. Now, by a gift, I can tell you what you're here for. I can tell you what's, by the Holy Ghost, by God's Spirit, tell you what you've come for, what you've done, what will be the future, or something like that; but that don't take care of it. You've got to accept This, yourself. It's got to be you!
L-221 Now are you ready? Raise up your hand, say, "I am ready. I am ready to die right here." Now don't do it unless you mean it. "I'm ready to die right here, or get what I want from God." Amen. Are you really ready? [Congregation rejoices and says, "Amen."--Ed.]
L-222 Then let the audience stand, everywhere. Now together, together, let's unite ourselves together. Let's pray. And let's just... You ministers now walk up to these people here, every one, and you're representing the hands of Christ now.
L-223 You that wants the Holy Spirit, you that wants that experience, not a emotional excitement; you want the Holy Ghost, the Life, the germ of Life inside you. And you want to get rid of that amnesia that's making you--you can't identify yourself; you don't know where you stand; you don't know what you are; let's get rid of it right now! There is a new Birth here for you, a real, genuine new Birth.
L-224 Now let's lay our hands over on these people. Let's, every one, raise up our hands and pray with one accord.
L-225 Heavenly Father, in the Name of the Lord Jesus, grant, Lord, that in Jesus Christ's Name, that the Holy Ghost will come tonight, this Saturday night, where the Holy Ghost fell like a rushing mighty wind. May these people be baptized into the Holy Ghost. May the Fire and Power of God not leave them. If they're here in the morning, may they stay, stay until the Holy Ghost comes.
L-226 That's the idea! That's it! There It is. That's the Holy Ghost coming. [Brother Branham speaks to someone while leaving the pulpit, "I done done it. I'm done."--Ed.] That's all. Believe It now! Accept It! Be filled with His blessings. [Congregation continues praying and rejoicing.]
