55-1001 - Shawano High School, Shawano, WI (Paragraphs: 81 - 116)
L-82 Did you give prayer cards out over at the church today? [] Look on the back of it; it's got my... []... you... Just now take yourself, any of you out there, and put you here before this woman with about, at least fifteen hundred or sixteen hundred people setting here tonight, looking right down, and Satan, moving around trying to make one flaw if he can... Put yourself here in my position now.
This challenge to the audience, to you people out there, to believe and watch the Holy Spirit move out, tell you about it, to heal. See, it looks simple, but come try it. Then you know where--what I mean. Now, I'm expecting you Christians to be in prayer for me, to pray for me. It's our Lord that we're speaking of.
L-83 Those tonight who held up their hands accepting Jesus, serve Him, maybe thirty, forty of them did. But look, friends, they couldn't have held up their hands 'less God called them. Jesus said, "No man can come to Me, except the Father calls him first. And all that comes I will give him Everlasting Life." Now, they're babies, just beginning. Now, they want to know Who this Christ is that they've accepted. They've heard of Buddha; they've heard of idols. They've heard of other religions, and so forth, outside of Christianity, but Who's This that they've just accepted, Christ? They did it by faith.
Now, I say He raised from the dead: He's not a dead one, God. Mohammed, and Buddha, and all the rest of them has been dead for thousands of years, but Jesus raised from the dead, and He's alive tonight. That's the only thing can prove it. [John 6:65]
L-84 Now, here we are, in this little handful of people, but the resurrected Jesus Christ, Who represents Christianity, is here tonight to prove that our thoughts... All of you Christians, you're on the right side, absolutely. You can't fail; you're in Christ.
Now, say... If the woman, she may be sick; she may have afflictions. She may have troubles in her heart. She may not even be standing for herself, maybe somebody else she's here for. She may be--she's got financial troubles, maybe she's got children somewhere that she wants prayed for. I don't know; I can't tell you. There's only One Who does know, and that's God.
But the same thing like the woman at the well. Jesus talked to the woman at the well till He... First thing, He begin to speak to her, then He after He carried a conversation with her, He said to her, "Go get your husband."
She said, "I have none."
Said, "That's right; you got five."
"Why," she said, "Sir, I perceive that You're a prophet. Now, I know when Messiah cometh, He will tell us these things." Saint John 4. "He will tell us these things, but Who are You?"
What was the sign of the Messiah? What was the sign? He will know the secrets of your heart. Is that right? The sign of... Said, "I know. We know, we Samaritans know that when the Messiah cometh, He will do these things, but Who are You? You must be a prophet."
He said, "I'm He that speaks to you."
And she went in the city and said, "Come, see a Man..." That's right. That's right. You go tell the same thing tomorrow, "Come, see a Man at church in the morning (See?), Jesus Christ the Son of God, Who knows all the secrets of your heart." [John 14:16-22], [John 4:29]
L-85 Now, this woman, believing her to be a righteous woman. And now, she is a Christian, or it done been told me. If God will tell me what she's here for, just like He did the woman at the well, like He did all through the Bible, will you believe then that Jesus really has risen from the dead and is here tonight? Will you do it? Will you just raise your hand and say, "I will do it, if I know... If it can be proven to me, it'll take all the skeptic out of my mind." Now, may the Lord grant it.
I just want to talk to the lady just a moment. And then, that's going to be up to you, whatever you think about it. Now, you'll have to know it's supernatural. I'm sad to say; some of you don't believe it, but it's so anyhow. See? Now, you can't hide yourself now. See? He's done anointed me now. See? But that's right. But you'll see then it's your attitude towards It will determine your destination. That's right.
L-86 Now, sister, as I turn to you, knowing that you are a Christian, 'cause as soon as the Holy Spirit just a few moments ago... I want to ask you something, there was a strange feeling come to you there just kinda like a sacred feeling, isn't that right? Even to bring tears to your eyes... That's right. That's when the anointing struck me, the Angel of God you see on the paper, that He's here now. That's what you feel right now. Such a sweet feeling, no one, oh, if you could just only feel this wonderful, heavenly atmosphere. It's His presence.
Now, you all seen that Angel on the picture? Almighty God Who will judge me at the day of judgment, knows that that Angel is right here now. You looking this way, looking right straight towards It. Not, me, Him. I can just feel It moving in the audience, everywhere. Now, if I can talk to the lady just a moment.
L-87 Now, sister, being a stranger to you, never seen you in my life. Then if God will let me know what you come here for, and will tell me something that you know that I don't know nothing about, you'll know it has to come through supernatural power. But will you believe it's the Lord Jesus and will accept whatever you're after, as He gives it to you and will believe Him, that I've represented Him right? Now, I've been speaking about Him and telling what He is, now it's Him to reveal to me, isn't that right?
Now, if the audience can hear me, which I know not how loud my voice is, the lady is moving away from me. And I see her; she's at some kind of a place; it's a doctor's office or a hospital. She's being--having an operation. And it's on her hand; it's her right-hand and her middle finger. And she's got... The doctor says there... I believe he says it's a malignancy. And he operated, but it didn't do it any good. And it's moving again.
And the woman is also suffering. I see her where she's changing her garments. And she's suffering with something in her leg; it's a varicose veins that's she's rubbing, which cramps her in her leg. Those things are true, are they, lady? If they are, raise up your hand. Do you believe?
L-88 Now, I do not know what I said to the woman; that wasn't me talking; that was that Angel you see on that picture. Now, whatever He said, test it and see if it's truth or not. Now, if that anointing is here, and I lay my hands on the woman... When the last words that ever come from Jesus' mouth, He said, "Go into all the world and preach the Gospel; he that believeth and is baptized shall be saved. These signs shall follow them that believe." The last thing He said, "If they lay their hands on the sick they shall recover." Is that right? Then whatever it is, I pray for sister while you pray too. Would you come close, sister.
Heavenly Father, Thou knowest this person, and I ask that You heal her, and make her well, or give her the desire of her heart and may she live long. And may her testimony stir the neighborhood where she lives. This blessing I ask in Jesus' Name, Amen. God bless you now, sister; go, don't doubt Him, but believe Him with all your heart, that Jesus gives you the victory.
Praise the Lord. He is great, marvelous; He cannot fail, for He is the Lord God. Amen, how we love Him and praise Him. [Mark 16:15, 18]
L-89 Lady setting right back there, right back at the end of the row there, has got heart trouble, setting there looking at me like that. Don't fear; your faith saved you just then. You believe with all your heart? Do you? If you do, you may have your healing. Thank you...?...
Here, that you might know, just about two rows in front of you, second, second in, arthritis. If you believe that Jesus Christ make you well, you may have what you ask for. Amen.
Little lady clapping her hands here, right here in front, has been having a flutter now, when she lays down, especially at night time after she eats. That's right. Isn't that right, sister? Put your hand up to your mouth like that, isn't that true, right here with the little shawl around your shoulders? When you lay down you smother; you think it's heart trouble, but it isn't. It's indigestion; your eating, and it pushes through the tube up and makes your heart flutter. You won't have that no more; your faith's made you well. You don't have a prayer card, do you? You don't need one (See?), you just have faith...?...
L-90 Now, the man before me, isn't Jesus the same? What happened? The woman's faith, she was praying; it touched Jesus, not me. But we are His... Our lips are the only lips He's got on earth. Our hands is the only hands He's got. "I will be with you, even in you..." manifesting Hisself to the world. "Things that I do shall you also." Just using our lips to speak...
"What is it, Brother Branham?" It's yielding to the Holy Spirit; that's all, yielding. Find out what He wants to use you for, and then yield to Him. If it's to go talk to somebody, yield yourself and go talk. Believe. [Matthew 28:20], [John 14:12]
L-91 Now, the man standing here, good evening, dad. We are strangers to each other, aren't we, brother? I have never seen you in my life. And I'd imagine if my father was living tonight, he'd be about your age. He was kind of a man about your size. Dad, I'd give the world tonight if he was standing where you are. I will never see him no more on this earth; he's gone on. But God rest his soul, his gallant soul in peace.
But Jesus is alive; He rose from the dead. Now, you know I know nothing of you, dad. I just--I'm just a man standing here. Probably you're old enough to be my father. And I--I never seen you, never met you; only God alone knows anything about you. That--that is true, isn't it? But Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God, knows all about you, doesn't He? He certainly does, certainly.
L-92 Now, this man, if the audience can hear me; I don't know how loud I speak, but I'm somewhere else. I know I'm on a platform, but I'm also standing at a hospital. The man has been operated on; it was for a--a hernia. And he had two operations. And one of them hurt him real bad, and that was the first one. The second one wasn't so bad. And you are a married man; your wife, she's here, and she's got trouble with her leg. And you got a boy, and the boy's a middle aged man, and he's had polio; and he's got crippled hand. And he's here with you tonight. Those things are true; do you believe?
O God, my Saviour, I pray that You'll give this, my brother, the deep desire of his heart. Whatever it is, Lord, that he has need of. I pray in Jesus' Name, as I hug this dear old brother to my bosom, may You give him his desire. Amen. God bless you, my dear brother, receive what you come for (Amen.) in the Name of the Lord Jesus. All right.
L-93 Brother Wood, if you would come here and stand by me if you will for a few minutes, to kindy help, if they would.
Are you believing with all your heart? Just have faith. Oh, how wonderful, praise be to God.
Sir, do you believe God can heal you of that trouble with your knee, setting there praying, setting right back here, about...?... seven rows back, six or seven right here, setting on the front, got trouble with the knees. Do you believe God, right in, lay your hand back, you, sir, there with the red shirt on, turn around and lay your hand on that lady laying--setting right behind you, right behind you, right back behind you. You looking at me so earnestly, setting right behind you.
Father, in the Name of the Lord Jesus, I pray that You'll grant this blessing to the person that I'm asking for, for You're glory. Amen.
L-94 Wouldn't hurt you, sir. I will show you something that you might not know. To the lady that had the trouble with her knee, lay your hand on the lady next to you, 'cause she's suffering with a gallbladder trouble. That's right, isn't it, lady? If it is, raise up your hand. All right. Now, lady, you lay your hand over on her. Now, in Jesus' Name may it never bother you again. That you might know too, the lady setting next to you has a neck trouble, back trouble. That's right, isn't it, lady? If that's right, raise up your hand? Amen. He's here.
Jesus is raised from the dead. He's alive among you. I challenge your faith to look and live. Believe with all your heart. You can have what you ask for.
L-95 Howdy do, sir. We're strangers to each other, I suppose, sir. I don't know you, but God does know you, doesn't He?
He said to me the night that He met me, that I was called to pray for sick people. That's why that Light come when I was only three minutes old. And I told Him, "People wouldn't believe me."
He said, "As Moses was given signs to prove that he was sent from God to deliver the children of Israel, you'll be given signs, too." Said, "You'll tell them the very thought that's in their heart, and by this, they will believe."
Do you believe that? Me being a stranger to you, not knowing you, but God does know you, and if He will reveal to me the secret of your heart, or the desire of your heart, then you will accept what you come for? Will the audience do the same thing? God bless you, brother. [Exodus 4:8]
L-96 Now, the man moves from me (if the audience can hear me). The man is here for somebody else. It's his wife, and she's in a hospital. And they's something--they got bandages wrapped around her legs. And she's got some kind of a breaking out all over. And you've come tonight to stand for her. And that you might know that I be God's servant, His prophet, you suffer also. And it's a stomach condition. Your stomach burns all the time. It's because you're so nervous and worried. It's an ulcer in the bottom pit of your stomach. Sometimes when you belch, you're--you get keep so sensitive, like that, with sour belches. And then you've got a stopped up tubes up in here, in your passage. That's the truth, isn't it? Do you believe you're going to go home and find what you've ask for? Then go and receive it, in the Name of Jesus Christ...?... God bless you.
L-97 Thanks be to God Who gives us the victory. If you'll only believe, you'll see the lame walking in a few minutes, the blind seeing, the deaf hearing, the dumb speaking. Watch just a moment. They're in here. Just wait till faith gets that place. I'm expecting it.
How do you do, sir. We're strangers to each other, sir. I--I don't know you, but God does know you, doesn't He? I try to be just reverent. Something happened then; I didn't--didn't get to see where it was at. Somebody was healed. I got real weak, and I seen the--that Light coming over the audience, but I couldn't see where it was at. Don't move around; be real reverent. I believe it was in the balcony above me or--I couldn't tell just where... It come from that direction.
Now we're--we're before God; we're in the Presence of God. Be real reverent. See? Just believe with all your heart. Now, it makes me awfully weak, so do pray, in your heart.
L-98 Now, this man--here stands a man here I've never seen. He's here for some purpose; I don't know. I wished I could heal him, wished I could, but I can't. Nobody else can; it takes God. He has to have faith in God. I'm--by a gift that God give me, maybe I can cause his faith to rise up to where he will believe. You are--you believing, sir? What's your trouble is you've got tumors. The tumors is in your shoulder. That is right. Now, being that your coat's swelled out with your (that--that the public might think that I was looking at that), you believe me to be God's prophet? Look to me and just... Don't think of nothing; just look to me and--and think of Jesus, and say, "Jesus, I believe You," so that the public will see that it won't be that. Maybe He will show me something else.
Yes, I see something else. You got a wife in trouble. She's with you, and she's suffering with something wrong with her leg. It's her left leg, and it's wrapped up in bandages right now. That's right, isn't it? Don't fear, sister. Now, go receive what you've ask for. In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, may it...?... That you might know something else, that trouble--the reason her legs... It's ulcers. That's right, isn't it? That's what the doctor said. I heard him when he said it. Have faith now; don't disbelieve. Believe with all your heart. Now. have faith everyone.
L-99 There's somebody setting right in here that just is wonderfully having faith. I hope you get healed, ever who it is. It's coming from everywhere.
How do you do, lady. Now, we're strangers to each other. I've never seen you, I suppose. We're strange to one another? You know me? You don't know me? All right. I didn't think I'd ever seen you. Sometimes I see people and never... Just they set in the audience, you know, but I don't know what you're here for, don't know nothing about you. You know that. But Jesus does. If God will reveal to me what you want, will you believe that He's here to give it to you? Will it settle it with you forever? Will you accept it? Now, don't be scared. You're warding off that anointing. See? That's the only thing that can help you.
Wasn't there a man here just a few minutes ago, had something on his shoulder, was prayed for? Some man... Is that him? Oh, yes. That's right. I just seen you pass the platform again, just a few moments ago. Seem like you come from somewhere, a place called Indigo, something another like that. Is that where you live? Oh, I seen you leave the city. I--I couldn't tell. You're still here before me. Don't worry; have faith; it's all light around you now, just have faith. That was the interruption.
L-100 Now, you're here because you're nervous. And that's the reason you're--act the way you do, is because you're a nervous, and you're suffering from a shock. Isn't that right? A shock... And I see you: You was in an automobile accident that caused a shock that's brought this on to you. And you're not from this city; neither you're from this state. You're from Michigan, and you've come from a place called Crystal Falls or something another on--on that order, away from here. That's right. You want to go home and be well? Then believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, believe you're in His Presence right now. Do you do it?
This man setting behind you come with you. If you believe with all your heart, you can be made well. Do you believe it? Come here.
O God, our Father, in the Name of Jesus, Thy Son, take away the curse and may our sister be made completely whole. I ask in Jesus Christ's Name, with my hands upon her. Amen. Something's quiet now. You feel all right now? Now, if that's right, tell the audience. You feel all right? [The lady says, "I'm feel all right. Jesus..."--Ed.] Makes you well. [She says, "Yes." --Ed.] Amen. See? Are you German? ["No, I'm Finnish."] Are you? Finn--Finnish? Finnish. Kiitos. Have faith in God.
L-101 Now, while you were setting there, and I turned, and said what I did, do you believe me to be His prophet? Then go eat your supper. Your stomach trouble will go away from you, and it won't bother you no more. You believe that? Then go do as I tell you. Quit worrying. You're a deep thinker. You're always taking other people's troubles to yourself and crossing bridges before you get to it. You're always planning something that never happens. Quit thinking like that; be happy and rejoice. It's a peptic ulcer, can't help it, makes your food sour and everything else in your stomach and cramps you. It won't hurt you no more. Go on and eat, and be happy, and rejoice, and serve Jesus Christ...?...
Brother, coming with you, comes a black spirit which is death. It's a devil: cancer. There's a lady setting there, also with cancer, cancer on the pelvis bone. Is that right? I see you--you're--you are--I hear somebody--Your name is; you're Miss Roy Zuke, Zeeks, or something like that, isn't that right, wave your hand? That's right. Now, that devil pulling between you; it's off of both of you now; it's light between you, now. Go, believing with all your heart.
L-102 Praise be to God. Satan lost that battle. Hallelujah. You know it's... The devil calls one to another. They're screaming and calling one for help. That's the reason I call for your prayer. Pray for me, help, keep praying. You see? It's a power; it's a battle. It's the devil's fight--wrong fighting against right; right against wrong. Quit being skeptic. Believe with all your heart. Be expecting you to be next. The Holy Spirit's healing all through the building. Be expecting to be next.
Now, what the outcome of that is, I know not. I know the thing left them. There was a dark streak between them, and this one was calling for mercy, "Help, help, help. Keep him from believing. Keep him from believing." I looked down to see where it was, and I seen the woman. I seen another woman calling her and called--I don't know what it was--called something another. I couldn't make it out just right. And that dark streak all left then, and it turned light, and the Holy Spirit was moving between them. That--the life of it left. Have faith.
L-103 And sister, God would cure you of that diabetes and make you well if you'd believe it. Do you believe His...? Do you believe it? Then in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ may it be so. Amen. Have faith in God, now.
Come, sister. Look this a way now, to live. Look and believe on the Lord Jesus with all your heart. Now, you're suffering from a mental oppression which is nervousness. You keep having strange and crazy thoughts running through your mind, especially right late of a evening. You get real weak. Many times you have to set down. And when the sun's a setting, you get a gloomy spell comes on you. And the devil's trying to tell you you're going to lose your mind. Those things are true, lady. You were praying before you come. You prayed and said, "If--God, if you'll give me a prayer card and put me before the platform, I will believe You'll be--You'll heal me." That is right. That... If that's right, raise your hand? That's right. I see you where you were kneeling there. Now, God has rewarded you and your faith has healed you. It's gone from you. It was caused from menopause, but you're going to be well. So go on your road rejoicing. And I bless you, my sister, in Jesus Christ' Name. Amen.
Let's say, "Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ."
L-104 Sister, if you'd stand there and believe that God will heal you with the heart trouble, you go right back down the steps and be made well. Do you believe that? Then turn and go right back down the steps and be whole in the Name of Jesus Christ. Hallelujah. Do you believe? Now, don't be scared about, "Hallelujah." The word, "hallelujah" means "praise our God."
Now, everybody bow your head. Here's a blind woman--blind spirit. I believe she's got...?... You believe now you're going to receive...?... and you're going...?... that God will heal those cataracts...?... Our heavenly Father, knowing what it is... see a blind person on the street, a little white cane. And the lady said practically all of her life she's been like this. Thou can make her see. Thou has power. The One Who healed blind Bartimaeus that day, has raised from the dead. They said when the blind spirit went away from the man, he could see. Will you, by the Name of Your holy Son, Jesus, make the blind spirit leave our sister? And as Your servant, I will lay hands upon her and rebuke this blind spirit. You evil thing, that would shut the sight of this woman off, 'cause her to walk before a vehicle somewhere, and be killed, and send her to a premature grave--come out of her, in the Name of Jesus Christ, I adjure thee to leave the woman.
L-105 I want every person to keep their head bowed till I ask you to raise your head, please. Keep your head bowed, your eyes closed, please. Now, don't doubt. Believe with all your heart...?... See? Put your hand on...?... Can you see better? Can you count my fingers? How many? Now? All right, see how it's coming? See? That cataract's dead. You see? See? Thank God. Raise your head a minute. Watch this. If you can see, touch my nose, lady, with your finger. Take your hand and touch my nose. How many fingers do I have up? Five. How many have now? One. Let's say, "Praise be to God." Now, walk right on off the platform...?... Walk...?... Don't lead her, let her go herself. Let's say, "Praise the Lord," everybody.
Our heavenly Father, we raise our hands to Thee, to give praise and glory. Today, O Lord, Who killed and throw away the cataracts out of the woman's eyes... O Jesus, Son of God, we worship Thee for Thy goodness and praise Thee for all Thou has done, in Jesus Christ's Name, we praise Thee. Amen. Look at the lady going on, shaking hands with the people.
L-106 What was it? Cataract. What is a cataract? Let me take a moment, just a moment. Give me your attention.
What is a tumor? What's a cancer? It's a devil. Look here. Where did you come from? From one little germ. If I tear your body down, you go down to one germ. Where did that germ come from? Your father. What's beyond... That germ is a teeny little cell. You could only see it with your--with high powered glass. What's beyond that little cell? Is life. Where'd that life come from? God.
What's a cancer? Is a life. Look, there's no cancer on my hand. There might be sometime. What does cancer come from? (Everything in the natural, represents the spiritual.) A cancer would be a--a scavenger, buzzard, eats dead things. A cancer comes from a bruise. And then when that bruise comes, there's a--a little cell in there that's bruised, that backslides. A life, another life, not your life, a germ, comes in there. It's a spirit first that develops itself around it by a germ or takes the germ that's already in your body, and takes its place.
L-107 Satan cannot create. He can only pervert what God has created, so he comes into that little germ. And what does he do? He begins to build cells, growth. A cataract does the same thing. Now, it gets bigger. What's it to do? Your little germ is to make you live. That germ is to suck the blood from you to kill you. (Tuberculosis, everything else... It's devils, alive. It's--it's malignancy. It's growing; it's growth.)
Now, looky here. The cataract in that woman's eyes--blind. What happened? Now, there's... I'm not dealing with that growth; I'm dealing with the life in that growth.
Just like here. What if there's a transparent band around my hand shutting off the circulation. The doctor--only thing he can--oh, operate, is what he can see or what he can feel. He can't neither see or feel that. He said, "Well," just like on the sight, "you went blind."
"What made you go blind?"
"Well, the optical nerve died."
"Well, what killed it?" You went deaf? What did it? What made you go deaf? Well, the nerve in your ear died.
"What killed it?" Your nerves didn't die all over.
"Well, now," the doctor said, "the nerve died."
What does the Bible say? The Bible said it's a spirit. "When the deaf spirit come out of a man (deaf spirit), he could hear. When the blind spirit left the man, he could see. The blind spirit..." [Mark 9:24-26], [Luke 7:20-22]
L-108 So that cataract in the woman's eyes--What happened? It was just like that transparent band. It was growing a growth and shutting off the sight. All right, what happened? Now, as soon as this transparent band (Now, it don't kill it back this way; it kills it up that way.) That's the reason when you go blind, you don't--your nerves don't die all over your body. When you go deaf from the nerve, it don't die all over the body; it just dies there. What is it? It's a supernatural force that shuts it off. Now, if that's released, immediately, it'll hurt a little, but the circulation will start back.
Anything that interrupts nature is the devil. God intends you to be healthy and strong, but the devil comes and interrupts what God has did. You see what I mean?
L-109 Now, that cataract had growed a body, going over her eyes: eating and living from the mucus from her eye. Now, I wasn't dealing nothing with the--with the growth. The doctor might look in there. The growth's still there. But what happened? I called the spirit, the life in the growth. What happens? Out goes the life. Anyone knows... Any hunters in here, that hunts deers? Let's see your hand? Got a lot of brethren, haven't I? Notice, you kill a deer tonight, and tell the boys how much it weighs. Be careful in the morning. It'll be pounds lighter. Is that right? Sure, it'll shrink. Let it lay there a few days, and it'll be pounds heavier. Is that right? (Let a little dog get run over on the street... ) A--a--undertaker in here--watch it tomorrow. It'll--It'll--it'll... You'll--you'll--the body... If a person dies, and got a false eye, false teeth, they'll take it out. Why? It'll push out: the body will shrink. And let it lay there, it starts rottening, decaying, cells breaking down. After seventy two hours, it starts pushing up. Now, what happens?
L-110 Now, when this spirit of that cataract went out of the woman's eyes, now she can see. She will see better. Tomorrow it'll be better. Next day it'll be better. Then it'll go getting bad again. Getting bad, what's the matter? The thing's a swelling. What with the cancer? The cancer... Say, "Whew... The pain's gone. Oh, I feel so much better. The tumor: "Oh, my, I feel so much better." Why? It's dead; it's shrinking.
Watch out. It'll do that for seventy-two hours. After seventy-two hours you start getting sick. Mmm. Right then, is where the danger line comes. You'll say, "Oh, I lost my healing." No! That's the best sign in the world you've got your healing. The thing is dead. And it's a piece of rotten flesh there, and it's certain, the bloodstream's got to pack off the impurities of the body. And it picks that up, and it causes fever. (Even a--a bad tooth will cause you to have a fever. Any infection... ) What about a strip of meat that long, like a cancer, or that big around, that's dead, laying in your body! See? Don't doubt. Believe. If it's anchored up here, you'll reason it out and say, "Well, I guess I lost it." but if it's down here, all the devils in hell can't make you doubt it. You'll believe it anyhow, 'cause something took place--not intellectually, but revelation.
L-111 That's where Jesus built His Church. Everybody's in it, is built on the same thing. "I say, Who does men say, I the Son of Man am?"
"Some say, Well, You're Moses or You're Elisha, or You're the prophets or..."
Said, "Who do you say..."
He said, "Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God."...?...
The Catholic says that it was built upon Peter. The Protestant said it was built upon Christ. Neither one... Jesus didn't say that. He said, "Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father which is in heaven has revealed it. And upon this rock I will build My Church (the spiritual revelation of Jesus Christ)--upon this rock I will build My Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." A spiritual revealed truth of Jesus Christ: wonderful. [Matthew 16:18]
L-112 Dad, are you tired of taking insulin, and want to get over that diabetes? Want to be well? You believe that He healed you? Then just go on off the platform and serve Him then with all your heart. God bless you.
Let's say, "Praise the Lord." If you can believe... Have faith in God. Heart trouble and everything else believes when Jesus get a hold. Isn't that right, dad? You believe He makes you well now? Go on your road rejoicing. That's the way to do it. Amen. Believe Him, that He does it. Say, "It's true; it's powerful; It's God. It can't fail."
In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, may it leave our brother. Amen. Hallelujah.
If I told you was healed, setting there in chair, would you believe it? Then, go rejoicing, for you are healed. Jesus Christ has made you well.
L-113 Now, here comes a blind woman, again. Bow your heads everywhere. Have faith in God. Sister, if I was able, my poor sister, hair graying, wrinkled hands. No doubt, she's done a many a hard days work. Standing here blind, I seen them leading you up the steps and leading you out when I called your number. I see them leading you up here, blind, but you can be led by the Master's hand if you can believe. I can only pray.
It's been a long time, hasn't it, sister? And a walk around in blackness and darkness is horrible, to set in a world all to yourself, in a world of blackness and darkness. May Jesus give you sight, tonight, sister. I will ask every man, woman, boy, and girl in here to keep your head bowed and pray with me. In Jesus Christ' Name.
L-114 Now remember, we're dealing with blind spirits. When they come out of one, they try to go to another. So just that you might know, keep your head bowed until you're ask to look up, for it might be a few days from now--you might not have sight. Wait till you hear me say, "Raise your head." 'Cause when you look, "the eyes is the gate to the soul."
You say, "Brother Branham, that's psychology." If it is, Jesus used it. He took a blind man, and led him away from the crowd, and took him outside of the city, and prayed for him, get him away from the crowd. Now pray. When He went to raise Jairus' daughter, He put everybody out of the house. He's still Jesus tonight. Whether the woman will be able to see, I don't know. She's standing here totally blind in darkness. Now, have faith in God and believe while I pray for her, please.
L-115 Now, sister, now keep your head bowed, and let the lids over your blind eyes be closed while I ask our Lord Jesus... Believe that He's going to break forth and shrink up these demons in here, that you'll be able to see. O Father, dear, as I stand by a blind woman... "One set along the highway begging... Then Jesus came." O come near, Lord. There might've been many there that had faith. I don't know; I wasn't there, Lord, but I know you met--give Bartimaeus his sight. When he seen he could see, I believe he tried to follow You.
This poor little mother, standing here, she's blind, Lord. You know her. I'm just a man; I've tried to represent You. Push back the blackness for her, will You, Lord? Break forth sight in these blinded eyes. We don't ask for miracles, Lord, but just something to encourage her, that would make her know that You're the Son of God, and I be Your servant, Lord, to tell them the truth. I believe if You'd do it, Lord, everyone in here would accept You, right then. Please do. Now, will You hear my prayer, as I ask You with all my heart, in Jesus' Name.
L-116 Now, Satan, this duel of faith; you claim her, and I claim her for Jesus. I claim that you have no power over her. I claim that you have no power over nothing. Jesus Christ, my Lord, stripped and robbed you of everything you've had and every legal rights, at Calvary. I stand here as His representative. And you know He's on the platform. You know all about this gift. You know about where He ministered and how He did it. And I charge thee, by the living God, that you come out of the woman. Leave her, in Jesus Christ's Name.
Every head bowed. Let me see your eyes first. I will call you if something happens. Now, just raise your head. Can you see me? Put your hands on my nose. Amen. Open your eyes. The woman can see. She's got her sight.

55-1003 - Lane Tech High School, Chicago, IL (Paragraphs: 73 - 96)
L-74 Now, if that Bible is true, Jesus is obligated to His Word, isn't He? Now, if Jesus stands here tonight and me--you and I are strangers, and tell me something about you that you know that I do not know... And you hear, probably heard other people say how they were getting well of different diseases, and blind, afflicted; you know it's Jesus a doing that, 'cause man can't do it.
Now, if God will help me tonight, if I believe that He will, to help you, there's... The anointing doesn't strike me just right; I don't know why. But if He will, then you will believe and accept that whatever you're here for... I don't know what it is, might be finances, it might be domestic, might be sickness, I don't know. But if He will tell me, then you'll believe the same Jesus that raised from the dead is here tonight talking, is that right? All right, will you believe it, audience? Every one of you believe with all your heart.
L-75 Now, I... It's... You see what a--a place it's in. Now, it's got to be God or the woman will have to walk off here without anything. See? Now, if she's sick, and I could heal her and wouldn't do it, I'd be a brute. I can't heal the woman, but by a Divine gift by Jesus Christ... If He were standing here Himself with this suit on, He couldn't heal her. He'd tell her that He already did it when He died. Did Jesus die to heal us? to save us? Then that's complete. See? We just confess our sins, and then He is just to forgive, because He's already done it. We accept what He done. [Isaiah 53:5]
L-76 Now, the little lady before me... May the Holy Spirit... He's here. And now, may His blessings rest upon you each, every one of you. Be real reverent. Now, I just want to talk to the lady a minute.
All right, sister... Now I trust that the Holy Ghost tonight, which is standing near... And right now I want to ask you something. Just the last moment or so, there's been a strange feeling come into you, hasn't there, kind of an odd like a sweet calm feeling, like something was fixing to take place? Because that's the Holy Spirit that standing between us (See?) a Light. And now, you're here, and I see what's wrong with you. You are suffering from a heart trouble. You have heart trouble. Yes, sir, yes, sir. And then you have a--you have someone you're concerned about, a loved one; it's a boy. And that boy is--has a mental condition. That's right, isn't it? Now, I want to tell you where my stumble is to you. I seen here not long ago you in a Catholic church or something or other, saying a prayer, but you have just been recently converted and become a Protestant, just recently, is that right? All right, now, do you believe me as God's prophet? All right, go and receive your healing in--in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
L-77 Have faith in God. Only Believe. Let your faith rise up and believe with all your heart, and Jesus Christ make you well. [Mark 11:22]
Watch the difference in the walking of the lady at this time. Let's say, "Praise the Lord," all of us, will you? Sure, God wants to be worshipped.
Now, He's here. What did that? Right now, I couldn't no more tell you what was said to that woman than nothing. What did it? I never did it. Here's the One that did it, right here, and that's the One that's right here now. God knows that.
All right. All right, everyone be reverent now. Here's--here's another typical case. A--a lady, colored woman standing here, me a white man, and that is an Ethiopian, not Ethiopian, I beg... or Samaritan woman that met Jesus that discussed about the racial affair. See, they had it in that day, but Jesus let her know there's no difference; we're all the same. Jesus died for every one of us.
L-78 Now, we're strangers to one another. We are of two different races. See? And we... Our forefathers was raised in different countries. It turned some of white, and some yellow, and some brown and some black, that... We all come from Adam. That's all. And Jesus Christ died for every one of us to make us all one in Him. You believe that, don't you? You do.
And now, you being a colored woman, me a white man, and--and born, maybe, miles apart, and never met each other till just now... Is that... You have met me before. [Sister talks to Brother Branham--Ed.]
Did you hear that? Two year... Where was that at, sister? [Sister says, "Right here."]
Right here, two years ago a cancer was eating her up. And I prayed for her here on the platform, and God healed her sound and well of it. Let us say, "Praise the Lord."
L-79 Is Jesus alive? Sure, He is. Now, probably if she hadn't have told me that, I'd have knew that in a few minutes when the vision come. See, but if it would strike now, 'course I might say it over; I don't know. I'm in another world, and I just have to say what I'm looking at. See? I can't say. I pray that God will give me something different from that, so that it might help the faith... She don't need that. She wouldn't have say nothing. She just wants to be prayed for, or either she's got something on her heart. I don't know. May the Lord reveal it to me now. All right. I know you believe me then, sister. You're bound to believe.
The Bible said one time, said, "Jesus was the devil," some of the Pharisees.
Another one said, "Can the devil open the eyes of the blind?" No, sir, no, the devil can't heal at all. He has no virtue of healing at all. Only God, healing... "I'm the Lord Who heals all your diseases," He said. That's right. Yes. [Psalms 103:1-3], [John 10:21]
L-80 But you're suffering with something else, sister. That's right. I see you... You got a--you got heart trouble for one thing. Your suffering with a heart fluttering like around your heart. That is true. And I see something another, you--you got something like headaches or something; it's sinus, sinus trouble. Isn't that right? That's the truth, isn't it? Now, see, Jesus still lives, doesn't He? Uh-huh. Now, the woman... I don't know how many I can get in the prayer line, but just watch the Holy Spirit now.
If I was to talk to her now just a few minutes, maybe He'd say something else. He's told her something, ever what it was, it was true, just as it breaks... I see you somewhere. I forget where it was at now, but I seen you. Now, you just believe, 'cause you have good faith. You're... No doubt but what you--you'll get what you asked for. But I--I really believe that what you asked for, you already got it. So I--I just want to talk to you though, so the audience would know and other--other colored people in here that know you, and so forth, would know.
L-81 Now, maybe He'd tell you something that's going to happen in a few days or something like that, or something that--that happened way yonder long ago, just something that you know I don't know nothing about, just encourage the other people. I hope that He will. I can only ask. And this is a Divine gift. Later this week I'll explain the best I can, how it comes.
Something strange... I see the woman leading a little boy. It's a little boy about--about eight years old. And the little boy is--he's been to a doctor; he's bothered with constipation, and it causes his little bowels to bleed. And the doctor can't check it. That's true. I go to... Put that handkerchief you got in your hand on him, he will get well. God bless you.
L-82 Hallelujah. Praise be to the living God, Who knows all things, knows the secrets of your heart. The Angel that appeared to me said you'll know the very secrets of things that's in their heart. Isn't that the very same thing that Jesus did when He was here on earth? Then why wouldn't He do the same, if He is the same? He's bound to do the same. God only knows.
L-83 Now, here stands a lovely little lady before me. I've never seen her in my life. She's a total stranger to me. I don't know her, but God knows her. That is true. And God can help her. And the only way He can do now, He sent His Word. You believe that to be the truth, don't you? In His Word, He said He'd set in the church apostles, prophets, teachers, evangelists. You believe that, don't you? The apostle has his part to do; the prophet has his part to do. Gifts of healing, working of miracles, all these things, it all goes in God. And you're very much in need of that tonight, aren't you? 'Cause you're suffering with a lady's trouble, a female condition that's bothering you. It's got you scared and worried, and you don't know what it's all about. Say, by the way, you've been in the hospital too. That's right. And you're a real nervous type person. And I see that you got stomach trouble, and every time you eat, your stomach goes into a spasm...?... That is right. Now, go eat, believe God with all your heart. Come here, sister, that I might ask Him to bless you.
Now, our heavenly Father, be merciful to this young person standing here, who's in need of Your blessings. And I bless her with the anointing of the Holy Ghost upon me. I lay hands upon her in Jesus Christ's Name and ask that she be made well. Amen. Blessings be on you, sister.
L-84 Blessed be the Lord Jesus Christ; blessed be Jehovah-jireh, Jehovah-rapha, Who raised up His Son Christ Jesus, and set Him on high, Who raised him from the dead. He lives tonight. As sure as God lives, Christ lives. And His Spirit is here; It's infallible. Put your faith to work tonight. Believe Him with all your heart.
Now, that makes me real weak. Just as soon as I go to dropping I can feel myself moving away, getting dizzy like, 'cause I'm getting weaker all the time. Speaking...
L-85 If you just pass the people and pray for... Now, here's a vision coming right now. I see that Light hanging right over this person standing here. It's a woman setting right here at the end. She's studying about someone. It's about a sister, and the sister has cancer. If that's right, lady, stand up on your feet. Is that... Raise your hand up right there. That's right. All right, you're worried about your sister with cancer, aren't you. Go, give her the good news, Jesus has raised them from the dead...?... Amen, believe with all your heart. Amen.
L-86 Have faith in God. Believe Him with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, with all your strength. Have faith in God. If thou canst believe, all things are possible. [Mark 11:22]
What did that? Brother Branham had nothing at all to do with it. What did it? The woman's faith in the resurrected Lord Jesus, that's all, the Spirit, the supernatural One that's here now, Who knows you.
Just let your faith fly away with Him tonight. Just get into His arms and move away. Just leave this old quacking world behind. Cross the separation between faith and unbelief and move off in faith, so many million miles beyond this chattering of the world here, saying the days of miracles is past, and Jesus died and that settled it. He rose again. Amen. Two thousand years has passed and He's here yet tonight in Chicago. And when aeons of time, when...?... time shall be no more, when every star ceases to shine, when the moon melts and flies into space, and the world is no more, Jesus Christ will still be alive. "And because I live, ye can live also." And we'll be with Him when there's no more world, and no more moon, and no more stars. The Lovely One that's with us tonight, we'll be with Him forevermore, in His Presence in the Father's house. Hallelujah. [Revelation 1:18]
L-87 Sure, you say I'm excited. I'm not excited; I'm happy. I got something to be happy about. My faith is coming closer in God. I find out God's done so many things for me, He's vindicated a work around the world, around the world, through every critic. I'm beginning to believe that what I ask, He will do it. Amen. I--I--I've got faith in Him, and I want you to have faith in Him; I want you to believe it. Amen. God be praised and blessed forever. Hallelujah.
L-88 You believe, sister? Is this the patient? You--you believe, all right. If you believe, only God can make you well. I can't make you well. If you're sick, I don't know. But now look, if I stood here and talked to you a few minutes, God would let me know what the trouble is. But if I... I believe if I just lay hands on you, you'd believe you got healed anyhow. See? You'd do it, wouldn't you? Sure you would. But, God, just for the sake of the audience, so you see, I can't on these kind of meetings. I couldn't stop it now and start doing that, 'cause it wouldn't--wouldn't work. See?
But the audience might know. Let's talk a moment. Now, we--we probably this is... Is this our first meeting time in life? First time you've ever met me? Yeah, You was here yesterday at the meeting. But that... Well, I've never met you personally to know anything about you.
Just heard about me. All right, I just want to a you to look to me a few minutes and take every thought away from your mind, and just say, "God, I know that this great feeling that I have now doesn't come from that poor little man standing there. It's bound to come from You, because it's working on the soul." And you know that's true; it--it is. But it has to come from Him, and He alone. And now if you will believe with all your heart, and God will reveal something, that--that you know that I don't know nothing about, and if He will reveal it to you right now on the platform, you'll accept what you come for, is that right? Will the audience do the same thing? May He do it now.
L-89 This ought to settle it, if God will do it. I don't say He will, He might not; He's never failed me yet. But I believe He will, and if He doesn't, I'll say sister, "I don't know." And I... 'Cause I'm just a man. I have no way of knowing. But if He will tell me and anoint me, then I'll know. Now, may He grant it is my prayer.
Now, you're--you're conscious, that something's beginning to move on you. That's this very Light you see here in the picture. That's right. That's what it is.
Now, you are--you're suffering with something that's on your hand. And you got a crippled hand. And that hand was caused by, you cut it some time ago on something like a glass or something, and--and something taking place. I see a the woman as she holding it, it was wrapped up with something, and it's great streaks, it took blood poisoning in it. And the blood poison got real bad, and it begin to move it down, and it's draining. And you've been to doctors, and they can't do nothing about it. And you're a woman, you work. And you work in some sort of a office, kind of a, you're typing, and you're doing typewriter work, and that hand, and someone told you a long time ago about my meetings. And they told you about me. You come over to the meeting tonight immediately after work without having your supper. You got a prayer card, and you went out and eat your supper and then come back, so that you could come and was called in the line, THUS SAITH THE LORD. Amen. That is true. You believe now? Go, receive your healing now. God in the Name of the Lord Jesus, grant it.
L-90 Have faith in God; don't doubt. Give Him Praise. Jesus raised from the dead and is a living in this auditorium in Chicago tonight. He will do anything that you'll ask Him to do if you'll believe it. But He can't do it until you believe it. Do you believe? Blessed be the Name of the Lord.
I love Him with all my heart. Isn't He wonderful? Oh, how--how I love Him. Doesn't something just make you feel real kind of good down in the inside of your heart, when you know you don't have to guess any more. All the guessing's gone. The Bible's true. Jesus raised from the dead; He's here now. That's Him right now. That's not me. Why, I can't do that. I don't know those things, and don't heal people. It's Jesus the Son of God. Have faith in Him. [Psalms 113:2], [Mark 11:22]
L-91 What do you think, mother, setting there looking at me? You're suffering with a head trouble, aren't you? You believe Jesus would make you well, little elderly lady, sitting right here? Yes, that's right. You were setting there praying, wasn't you, mother? You've got--having trouble with your head. That's right. Now, you believe He's going to make you well? You do? Will you do me a favor? Now, being that Jesus has been so good to you, lay your hand over on that man there. He's suffering with heart trouble. He--he's been... Well, he's had heart trouble a long time. Is... That's right. Now, amen.
Now, sir, you were setting there saying, "Well, Lord, why don't You pass... Don't pass me while you're talking to her." Is that right? raise your hand. That's right. Now, He isn't going to pass you; He's going to heal you if you'll just believe it. Will you believe it? Amen. May the Lord Jesus make you well. Hallelujah. Have faith in God. There He is just moving through the audience. Oh, my, I wish I could. Oh, how He loves to be worshipped. He loves you. Praise be His Name. You ought to believe right now, every one of you. Have faith and believe. [Mark 11:22]
L-92 Here's a man standing before me. How do you do, sir? Are we strange to each other, sir? We don't know each other? Oh, you've been in a meeting, come to me. I don't know you, though to know... No. But a there's Somebody here Who--Who does know you. Isn't that right? And He knows all about you, and He can heal you, can't He? and make you well? Sure, He can. He's lovely, and that's what makes Him so good, is because He's God, and He loves everybody.
Now, if Jesus will tell me what you're here for, will you believe me to be His prophet? And then if He will tell me, then I'll come... That's anointing of something on me, isn't it? Then if I lay hands on you according to the Bible, then you believe you'd get well? Now, you're suffering with you're feet, aren't you, sir? It's your legs also. Isn't that right? Now, if I'd lay hands on you, you think they would get well?
Here's another thing. You have been all bothered about somebody, and that's a nephew, a man. And he's not here. He's in a big city, great big city that sets near a border; it's Detroit, Michigan. And right at this very night, he's in a hospital; he's under oxygen tent, and he's got heart trouble. Take... Send that handkerchief you got in your hand to him for his healing, and you go in God's strength...?... going...?... Believe now with all your heart; may the Lord Jesus make you well.
L-93 Hallelujah. You believe you were healed setting right there? I believe it with all my heart. Oh, isn't He wonderful?
Be reverent. Now, don't get up and leave. Is it time? All right, we'll close then. See? All right. May the Lord bless you, each one. When you stir, (See?) I can't... it won't... God is reverend, He can't--He just can't move when people are irreverent; we can't do it. I've held you too long perhaps.
Have faith now. See, I told you, set still. You see, if you--if you move around, it throws it off to me. See it's souls; I can't explain it. You're spirit, and when you move, that interrupts the--the--the Holy Spirit. You say, "What about that in the Bible?" Why sure, Jesus put the people out of the house to raise a dead girl. He--He took a man and led him outside the city, away from the people to get him alone. [Mark 9:22]
L-94 What do you think about that, little lady, setting there on the end? You were right then praying, "God, don't... Let this be my night, is that right?" If that's what you was asking God, stand up on your feet. Now, you know what? That stomach trouble you had is healed. Now, you can go eat what you want to. God bless you. Amen.
What do you think about that, dad, sitting right behind her, see it moved right back to you setting there, you got rheumatism. You believe Jesus is going to make you well? All right, stand up on your feet, stomp your feet up-and-down, and go home, saying, "Thanks be to God." He healed you. Hallelujah.
L-95 Lady, setting there with your hands folded, saying, "Lord, let this be my night." If you believe, you won't have heart trouble any more. Do you believe? Hallelujah. Then go and receive.
Praise be to God. Have faith in God. Heart trouble's nothing for God to heal, is it, sister? He can just make it well; He can do anything He wants to, can't He? You believe He will do it? [Mark 11:22]
Little lady, setting right back here on the end of that row, first row over here, setting with gallbladder trouble, setting there praying, you believe God's going to make you well... On a little short row over there on the end, you believe Jesus Christ's going to make you well? If you can believe it, you can have what you ask for. God bless you, sister, you received your healing. Amen.
L-96 Let's say, "Praise the Lord." Do you believe it on one accord? Put your hands on one another and let's pray the prayer of faith right now and just everybody be healed at once.
Almighty God, in the Name of Jesus Thy Son, let this be the hour that when the people will set their faith in God, and the great Holy Ghost will heal every one that's in here. Grant it, Lord. May their faith reach out now, take a hold of God, and be healed every one. Let the Holy Ghost fall right here in this building and make them every one well. I rebuke the devil; I condemn him. In Jesus Christ's Name I cast him out of every person in here. Amen.
