60-0402 - Municipal Auditorium, Tulsa, OK (Paragraphs: 53 - 55)
L-54 Now, the Presence of the Lord is here to heal the sick, make the people well. Just believe Him. Do you believe Him? If we can believe Him, all things are possible. You believe that? Do you believe that that's the Presence of the Lord?
Now, while you... Give me just a moment, just a moment now, and listen just for a moment. Let me prove to you it's the Holy Spirit here. Let me show you that the Holy Spirit, the very One that does the talking, the One that does the thing, knows that. How many's here now, that come in here sick. Let's see your hands. The ones that had a sickness... There's people...
There's a man standing there. Do you believe, mister? There's no prayer cards out, but do you believe that God can heal you? Do you believe he can tell me your trouble? It's in your side. You're up for an operation. That's right. Your name is Mr. Cartwright. That's right. Is that right? Wave your hand. All right. Go home and be well, you won't need it. You believe it?
L-55 That man holding that baby in his arms, you believe me to be God's servant? You believe this to be the Holy Ghost? I do not know you, is that right? Never seen you in my life; we're strangers. Do you believe the Holy Ghost can tell me what's the matter with that baby. Got a rash. That's right. Isn't that right? Certainly. You're not from here. No. You got a stomach trouble, you suffering with yourself. That's right, isn't it? You're from Kansas City. All right. Return back, Jesus Christ makes you well. Hallelujah. You believe. Do you believe it with all your heart?
Here's the Angel of the Lord, hovered over this little--little bitty woman, kindly elderly, setting right here, suffering with a hernia. You believe God will heal you of that hernia, sister? You, with the little red flower on your hat, raise up your hand. All right. Go home and be well. Amen. Oh, it's God; it's Christ the Son of God. He's raised from the dead. He's here.
Now, put your hands upon one another and just offer a good season of prayer, every one of you, while I ask... Somebody come here. Come here, brother. While you got your hands on one another to show that God heals too, I have the brother here to offer prayer too. Go ahead. Praise be to the Lord God.

60-0403 - Municipal Auditorium, Tulsa, OK (Paragraphs: 94 - 116)
L-95 Now, everybody keep your seats. Be reverent, pray. And may the Lord God grant that... Just, Lord, please. These lovely people. I'm... Lord, You know my purpose of being here, and I pray that You'll let them see, if they never again, let them know that the coming of the Lord is at hand. Let them know that these cruel messages, seemingly, stirring them up, is not to act smart, not to be in myself, but because You've anointed it, and said so.
Prove it, Lord. I spoke for You. Speak for me, Lord, that my words are true because they come from You. I ask in Jesus' Name. Amen.
L-96 Receive your call. Don't miss your day. How many in this prayer line is strangers to me, raise up your hand, all of you that's strangers. All you that's out there that's strangers, raise up your hands. I don't know a person but Gene Goad setting here, Pat Tyler right here. That's the only ones that I see; my son, standing back there is the only ones I know...
That woman setting there rubbing her eyes with the red hat on, setting right there, do you believe Jesus heard you when you asked Him to heal them sinus headaches? You believe He heard you? You was praying about it, wasn't you? If that's right, stand up on your feet. If that's the truth, put up your hand. If I don't know you, and you don't know me, put up the other hand, both hands. Ma'am? You've been in my revivals before? But I mean I don't know you. No, all right.
L-97 All right. Now, they have ceased. You can go home and be well. I want to ask you people something. What did that woman touch? Here's my hand. I never remember a... She's been in meetings. Now, you say, "How about somebody up there in the balcony or down in here, maybe in the meetings sometime before." I would never know who you were. Only thing I know that you'd just... You was here at the meeting. And there she is. She touched something. And what did... I... I said awhile ago, that Pillar of Fire... Don't you see it's... How many's got the picture of It now? They got it here at the meeting. Now, It looks like the Pillar of Fire, doesn't It? And now the life of It, what does It produce? The same... Not me now, It, what does It produce? The same works that It did when It was in the Son of God. Now, It's in adopted sons and daughters of God, by the grace of the true Son of God.
L-98 Right there, sir, you want to get over that heart trouble? Believe that God will make you well, setting right there? You were looking, wondering and all at once a little funny feeling trinkled over you. That's right. I don't know you, do I? You don't know me, and I don't know you. If that's right, raise up your hand. You believe your heart trouble's gone, wave your hand. All right, then it's gone. See? You believe?
Here's a lady setting right out in here. Can't you see that Light over that woman? She's got gallbladder trouble. She's going to miss it. God, help. Miss Small, do you believe God will heal you of that gallbladder trouble? Then stand on your feet. You had more faith than you thought you had. I do not know the woman, That was God's grace. If we are strangers, wave your hands like this, lady. That's... I don't know you? But what He told you, is it the truth? Raise up your hand. (What He said...) All right, then have faith and go home, be well. If you can believe...
This lady setting right here with the abdominal trouble in the abdominals. Yes, Effie is the one I am talking about. Stand up, Effie. Was that your trouble? I do not know you. If that's true, raise up your hands. I never seen you in my life. God in heaven knows that. Go home. It's over. God bless you.
L-99 If you die in your sins, it won't be God's fault. You might be ever so loyal to a church, but a sinner is an unbeliever. Have faith in God.
All right. Now, these people here, this is a prayer line to lay hands on the sick. Are you going to believe it regardless? Now, that's people without a prayer card, where the line of discernment is, out there without a prayer card. Now, the rest of you start believing.
Don't move around. See, each one of us is a spirit. See? Each one of you is a spirit. Did you know that? If there wouldn't, you'd be dead. So it's your spirit I'm talking about, not you. It's your spirit.
L-100 Come here, lady. Do you believe me to be God's servant? We're strangers to each other. We don't know one another. If that's right, so that the audience, up in the balcony, will understand, just raise up your hand if we're strangers, never met? Here's a panoramic. Being's the first one in the line was a woman, here's St. John 4: a man and a woman meets the first time in life.
If this is the Spirit of Christ here between us, then He'll work the works of Christ.
Please don't move. Now, you just ruined the--the... You--you hurt others. See? I have control of every one of you. I'm trying to help you. Be real quiet and reverent. All right.
L-101 If the Lord God will tell me something about you... If I come up here... Perhaps you're sick; you might not be, but if--if you are and I come here and just laid my hands on you and said, "You're going to get well, lady," you could believe that. 'Cause that's--that's true. But if the Holy Spirit stood here and... What if--if what if--if this was the Lord Jesus wearing this suit, standing here, and you'd say, "Heal me, heal me, Lord," He'd say, "I've already done it." But He'd do something like He did when He was back here before, like He did at the woman at the well, to let you know that that's Who... How did He make her know, by telling her something that was in her life. Is that right, audience? All you newcomers? He'd tell something that was in her life.
Now, if He'll tell something that is in your life, like He did to Simon Peter or like he did to somebody in the Bible, the way He did, then that would give you a lot of faith. Would it give every one of you faith to believe?
L-102 Now, here it is, well, not hiding behind some black curtain, not some devil's haunt, but right here on the platform with you. Out at words of the Bible. It may be a little upset in theology, but it's the Scripture just the same. See?
If I could help you, and wouldn't do it, I'd be an impostor. I wouldn't be worthy to stand here beside this Bible, if I could help you and wouldn't. I can't help you. Only thing I can do is to make you realize something that Christ is here to heal you, make you well if you're sick. You are sick. You're bothered with a lady's trouble; it's a female trouble. That's right. If that's right, raise up your hand.
So that you'll not--you'll know that I'm not guessing. Just a minute. Put something on your heart. And just pray to yourself in your heart for whatever you want God to do. Yeah, you got something on your heart right now. It's your husband. It's your husband. You believe God can tell me what's wrong with him? It's something wrong in the brain. It's caused like a hardening of the artery in the brain. That is true. That's right. If God will tell me who you are, will it make you have a lot of faith? You believe it with all your heart? Nancy Gillespie, go home, Jesus Christ healed you and your husband and makes you well. Take that handkerchief to him. That's true, isn't it? All right. Go on your road.
L-103 Now, do you believe God? Just have faith; don't doubt. Now, I'm going to ask this great church here, if you will pray with me for these people; that's somebody's mama, somebody's papa, somebody's sweetheart, somebody's husband; pray; don't move around, please. You just--you're just ruining the meeting. Hold real still and pray. We'll be dismissed in ten minutes if you'll just keep--just keep reverent.
Come lady. If I don't say one word and just pray for you, you believe it? Lord Jesus, I pray that You'll heal her, in Jesus' Name.
Come, my brother. Believe with all your heart. Our heavenly Father, in the Name of Jesus Christ, make him well. Amen. God bless you, my brother. [The brother speaks to Brother Branham--Ed.] Oh, that's just... That don't make a bit of difference to us. Now, it's all right.
I know what's wrong with you, but there's no need of telling you. If that... Would it help you if I told you? Wouldn't help you. All right. But anyhow, your heart trouble left you when you left there. So just go on your road rejoicing, saying, "Thank You, Lord."
L-104 Come, sir. In the Name of the Lord Jesus, Father, I pray that You'll heal him. Amen. Believe now.
Have faith now, sister, come like... All this... Look, there's nearly three thousand people here praying for you now. In the Name of Jesus may she be healed. Grant it, Father.
Come on. Sir, that arthritis will get you one day if you don't have faith now. You believe it now? Then go and be healed in the Name of Jesus Christ.
Come, sister. Father God, in the Name of the Lord Jesus, heal our sister.
Come believing now. Every one believe and pray.
Heavenly Father, I pray that You'll heal her in Jesus' Name. Amen.
Come. Now, brother, if we had visions for every one, it would just... You'd--I'd... They'd have to take me off the platform. See? I'd go down. But that you might know, go ahead and eat your supper tonight. It'll taste real good. The stomach trouble's left you, you see? Go and be healed. God bless you.
L-105 Come, sister. I do that for a purpose, throw myself off, friends, 'cause visions... How many knows that Jesus said, "Virtue's gone from Me"? I'm right now, I just real real weak.
O Father, I pray that You'll heal our sister, in Jesus' Name. Grant it.
Come, sister dear. Don't doubt now. Come believing with all your heart. O Lord, in Christ's Name heal our sister. Give her her victory, Lord.
Come, my sister. The Bible said, "These signs shall follow them that believe." In Jesus' Name may she be healed.
Come, sister. Your back trouble left you, so you can go on your road rejoicing now...?...
L-106 You believe? Why, why? Listen. I want to ask you. Listen, friends. When them people come by here, the Bible says, "They lay hands on the sick and they shall recover," is just as much as telling them. Don't you believe that? Certainly you believe.
Look here, sir. You believe me to be His servant? Now, there's a woman I stopped awhile ago; you're a man. You believe that God can tell me your trouble and--and make you well. You've got... Yes, sir. Lord, you--your stomach trouble's one thing that's bothering you a bit. That's right. Yes, sir, yes, sir. And your prostate glands. Yes, sir. Because your prostate makes you nervous, and that's what that upsets you. That's exactly right. You think your wife could get well too if you'd believe? All right. If you'll believe with all your heart, then your wife can be healed. [Brother says, "She's sick"--Ed.] Yes, nervousness, and upset, weakness and things. You believe with all your heart now she'd be healed? Go on your road and say, "Thank You, dear Lord Jesus," and she'll get well too.
Lord Jesus, I pray that You'll help this, O Lord, and make it so that his--the glory of God will come upon him and he will be healed. In the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
Now, go believing, Mr. Dobbs, and believe with all your heart, and get well. [Mark 16:17]
L-107 All right, sir. Come, sir. Heavenly Father, I pray that You'll heal our brother and make him well in Jesus' Name.
Come, sister dear; believe Him with all your heart now. O God, our Father, I pray that You'll make her well in Jesus' Name.
Come, brother. Bring the little one. Don't doubt now. Just bring him right along like you was coming right under the cross. Lord, I bless them in Jesus' Name. Amen.
Come, sister. Come, believing now with all your heart. And, Father, in Jesus' Name, I pray that You'll heal her. Amen.
Believe now and be real reverent. Believe with all your heart. In the Name of the Lord Jesus, may she be healed, Lord. Amen.
Come, sister, believing with all your heart. Believe that she'll get well now and receive her sight and all. O Lord, I pray that You'll heal her in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
L-108 The other night, praying for a little boy about fifteen, sixteen years old, he passed through, the little fellow with great faith. I looked at him; I said, "'Course, you know, son." And--and so he went on out and walked right down there, and a little boy born blind received his sight and screamed back, "Oh, Brother Branham, I can see."
Here lays in here a string from a baby, water-headed baby, shrank over that much in one night just passing by. Things are happening. You must believe though. See? You're not chickens; you're eagles.
L-109 Come. In the Name of Jesus, Lord, may she be healed for the glory of God. Amen.
Come believing, having faith. You know, something or another... You know what I'm thinking, friends? I--I'm not--I'm not scolding people, but I want you to know one thing: we got too much television in our lives. We want entertainment. We want... God's not showing you things to entertain you. He wants you to recognize His Presence. Them things can happen to everyone, but it would nearly kill. Oh, I wouldn't get through the line.
Here, come here, lady. You and I are strangers to one another. You think God can tell me what your trouble is? Would--would it help you? Would it help you all if--if--if God would said something now to this woman? It's your ear. You believe that God will make it well? You're scared it's a cancer. And it's in your left ear. Is... That right? Well, it was, but it isn't now.
Now, look. Do you believe God? If God will tell me who you are, will it help you? All right, Ruby Constance, go home and be made well in the Name of Jesus Christ. See? Have faith.
33-14a Come now. Don't doubt. God can tell me your trouble, would it... You think it would help you? Then the diabetes, heart trouble, move on your road and be made well and believe God. Yes, that's just old age coming on you. Now, just go believe that. O Lord, I pray that you'll heal our brother and make him well. Amen. God, grant it.
Come, sister dear. In the Name of the Lord Jesus, may she be healed. Amen. Asking God's blessing, how can It fail? In the Name of Jesus Christ, may it be, Lord. Amen.
Come, my brother. In the Name of Jesus Christ, may our brother be healed. Amen.
Come, brother dear. God bless you. Bring mother right on. Come on, sister. In the Name of Jesus Christ, may you be healed.
Come. In the Name of Jesus Christ, may our sister be healed, Father. Yes, believe now. The same thing will happen down there, if you won't doubt.
L-110 O God, bless this poor, dear brother. I pray, heavenly Father, that You will heal him and make him well. And let it come to pass that he'll receive his sight and be made well, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
Have faith, now. Don't doubt. I can't heal. He's just here. He's the Healer. Don't doubt. Be like blind Bartimaeus: keep looking for your hand.
In the Name of Jesus Christ...?... may this sister be healed.
All right. Come, sister dear. Are you believing, everybody, real...
Something happened. Just a minute. That fellow setting there, you got asthma, sir. That's right. You was praying. You turned around to say, "Isn't that wonderful?" I'll tell you another thing; they took about two-thirds of your stomach out for stomach trouble. That's right, isn't it? If that's right, wave your hand. And we're strangers to one another. Jesus Christ healed you. Your faith made you well. Go on your road rejoicing.
Oh, don't doubt; believe.
L-111 All right, lady. You... Wait a minute. Now, you're not here for yourself. You're here for somebody else. That's right. And your brother is not here. Your brother's not even in this state. He's in St. Louis. He's in the hospital. He's got heart trouble, and he is--has been a minister. And you thought if I'd pass by and laid hands on you, that you would--I wouldn't know what I was talking about. But I knew. So you go on your road. He's going to get well now and be...?... All right. Have faith. Just go ahead.
There's another woman in here thinking the same thing right now about her daughter that got killed. Mrs. Weatherman--Waterman, it is. Mrs. Waterman, believe with all your heart now. Your daughter was taken for a purpose. Don't doubt. Believe God.
L-112 O God, in the Name of Jesus Christ, may he be healed. Amen.
Come believing now with all your heart. O Lord God, Creator of heavens and earth, grant the healing of this woman, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen. Believe now.
Now, look. There's not a medical cure; but there's a heavenly cure. That's right. You believe it that you'll be normal and well? Curse... I curse this devil that's done the evil to this child. And I take this curse off of it, in the Name of Jesus Christ. May it be a normal child. Amen. It has to be. All right.
Go along rejoicing, and get well, and eat your supper and...
All right. Come, sir, believing with all your heart. In the Name of the Lord Jesus, may he be healed. Amen.
L-113 That struck so many places in the audience, just a minute. That... How many in here has nervous stomach anyhow? Raise up your hands. It's just so many, I can't... See there? Every one of you that's got nervous stomach, stand up on your feet. Here's where you get rid of it. Stand on your feet just a minute. Stand still, sir. Go, believing, my brother. In the Name of Jesus Christ, may you be healed.
Come, now. Believe with all your heart. You believe, sister? In the Name of Jesus Christ, may you be healed.
Nervous, always been all your life. God bless you. Everybody that's bothered with nervous trouble and kidney, stand to your feet. Get up on your feet, everybody that's got it. Go, believing now and have faith in Jesus Christ. Stand right down there.
O Lord God, I pray Thee to have mercy upon our brother and to make him well in Jesus Christ Name. Amen.
Have faith. Do you believe now, sister dear? In the Name of the Lord Jesus, may she be healed, Father, for the glory of God.
L-114 Something's happening. Is that all of it, Billy? Yeah, come here, sir. We strangers to one another? God knows us both, doesn't He? Oh, it's just happening everywhere.
Remember preachers, my brethren, my precious eagle brothers, when I'm gone from here for weeks, you'll find your congregation testifying of being healed. They're healed, but they don't know it. See, see? It's just happening everywhere. Why couldn't we have this kind of faith to begin with, friends? This is it.
Do you believe that God can help you? You believe God can tell me what's your trouble? You have severe headaches. You have dizzy spells. It's caused by a growth in the neck. That's right. You believe God knows who you are? You're a minister. Your Name is Reverend Jack Cole. That's exactly right. Go, believe, sir.
L-115 Every one of you that has dizzy spells or has headaches, stand to your feet. Every person that's sick, stand to your feet. O God, what could happen if it just would... What could take place? Do you believe it? How many believers are here convinced that this thing is the Holy Ghost? Raise up your hand. I can't do those things.
Are you believers? Lay your hands on one another, and ask the devil to leave the person you got your hands on. Your prayer's as good as mine. Put your hands over on one another. That's right, lady up there, tubercular left you then.
The prostate trouble left you, brother. You may put your hands down and shout the praises...?... with that little lady standing right there. It's gone for good. Jesus Christ makes you well.
L-116 This is It, friends. Let's give God praise. O Lord, You're here. I condemn the devil in all of his work. I condemn every evil spirit. Satan, you are exposed. You are rebuked in the Name of Jesus Christ. I charge thee by the living God; come out of this audience. You can't make them doubt any longer. The Holy Spirit has made Hisself real before them. You can't make them doubt any more. They got hands on one another. Jesus said, "These signs shall follow them that believe; if they lay their hands on the sick, they shall recover." Satan, you are lost. Jesus is near, You are, the God of heaven. May the power of sickness, and the power of the devil be broken over these people. In the Name of Jesus Christ. [Mark 16:17-18]

60-0417m - Branham Tabernacle, Jeffersonville, IN (Paragraphs: 66 - 87)
L-67 I'd seen that. I'd been catering too much to denominations and everything (You see?), somebody trying to tell you what to do and what not to do. You got to follow Him. Now, remember the vision that He give me about the fishes, you know, and how that you couldn't teach supernatural signs to Pentecostal babies. You remember. There it was. And I'm right at the brim of this new message.
No more than the vision left me, I said, "Amen, Lord." And my wife was standing there, almost fainted. And I jumped up out of the bed; I could talk as good as I ever did. Just in a second, every bit of the fever left me.
I called up Doc Schoen, I said, "I'd like for you to look at me."
He said, "What?"
And I come over there, and he looked at me, looked through those sinuses, said, "Tell me what happened, Brother Branham."
And I said, "You'd believe my story?"
He said, "How could I doubt it? It's happened."
That's it. See? That's it, friend. God knows how to hold you on an ash heap. He knows how to do something for you until He can get the message over to you (See?) to get to do something.
L-68 Today, I don't know how much defeat. I went in not long ago, was listening to a radio broadcast. And there was a minister preaching on the resurrection, from I Corinthians 15. And he was preaching the resurrection. And he stopped right in the middle of his sermon, and he said, "You know, so many people are afraid of defeat." He said, "When General Patton lost a bunch of soldiers," said, "then they told him... He sent back and he wanted some more, and they sent him up some more. He got them killed, and he sent for some more. And when he got them third bunch up there," said, "every time a bullet would whine, they'd run under a tin, or run under something another, scared."
L-69 He said, "Send me up men, not kids." He said, "I want men that's ready to die. I don't want somebody that's afraid to die. If the cause we're fighting for is not worthy to die for, then keep them away from me. I want men." They said, "But you've lost two or three battles."
He said, "I haven't lost the war. I've just lost a battle." Something spoke in my heart.
I remember Eisenhower said, "When I throwed a bullet, commanded and they throwed a shell in the gun, they pulled it off and it was a fizzle; it didn't work," said, "I didn't quit and surrender. I throwed the bullet out and put another one in, tried it. If it didn't work, I put another one in, until one did work."
L-70 That's the way it's got to be done. I don't know how it will be. But God is my Judge over this pulpit; I don't know how many fizzles and how many--how many battles I will lose, but I will not lose the war. He told me He'd be with me. I will stand till I see that ministry confirmed and see it in operation. I begin this morning by the grace of God. I don't know whether it will work here, whether it will work somewhere else, how it will work, or what will take place. But I will walk right down prayer lines, praying for the sick, until I do know what's happening. I seen it happen two or three times.
I seen it happen in Hattie's house. How many ever heard the story about the squirrels, and about the girl, the little woman? The first person in all since we've knowed, since the days of the disciples, was ever given the privilege to say, "Ask what you will," when you're there. Did you ever hear the story? Did you ever see the woman? How many never seen her, and want--would like to see the woman it happened on? We... Hattie, would you stand up? There's the lady.
L-71 Standing in her house. After I'd seen eight squirrels, that wasn't absolutely none around anywhere, and just speak the word, and there they would be standing there. That's true. That's... There they were. And I said, "What made them squirrels come?" there setting there at her table. And her mother, Sister Wright, here is Brother Wright, was setting there. How many was at the table, how many is here this morning? Raise up your hands. Well, there they are, all around over the building. See? All right, they were there. I said, "Someday..." Their little crippled sister setting there...
I said, "It has to come by vision, so forth, but someday it'll come different." Was talking like that, all at once, something anointed that. Leave it to this people... I never felt such an anointing. Why? Because Hattie said the right thing.
L-72 I said, "Where did them squirrels come from? There was none there, not even a place for them, just like on a telephone pole right there. And I seen it happen eight straight times." And I said, "I don't know where it come from." I said, "Only thing I know, that God tried to confirm a message to Abraham one time, and he spoke a ram into existence, because he needed a ram to confirm it. It must've been that I needed a squirrel: to speak mine. And He did it eight straight times, or seven straight times, rather, seven straight times." And I said...
And, Hattie, maybe not knowing what the woman was saying. Look how it bypassed the rich and the haughty. Look how it bypassed everything, and come to a poor little old country woman there.
L-73 And I had twenty dollars in my pocket to give back to the woman, that she had pledged fifty dollars on this new church coming up. And I don't say this to embarrass her; she couldn't afford fifty cents, really, to give it. But her heart in the message, she wanted to. Brother Neville, I believe had accepted it, wouldn't take the rest of it, just let her give twenty dollars of it. And I had two ten-dollar bills in my pocket, Meda give me for groceries; I said, "I'm going to give it back to her today."
Then I thought, Something spoke to me, said, "Jesus seen that widow putting in her three pennies, and He never took it back from her." He let her go on because He had something greater down the road.
L-74 Little did I know He was speaking to me the same way of a widow woman, no husband. Her husband was killed. Neither did I know that was the same One, when I said, "Then I'll just keep the twenty dollars; You have something else for her."
I said, "The only thing I know, that Jehovah is still Jehovah- Jireh. He's able to provide a sacrifice."
And Hattie, not knowing what she was saying, raised up and said, "That's nothing but the truth, Brother Branham." Oh, my. That was the right thing to say. That was the right thing to say.
About that time, the power of God struck that place; I never felt such anointing. When it did, I said, "Hattie, THUS SAITH THE LORD; ask what you will. I don't care what it is; God has give me the authority to give you your heart's desire right now. If you ask for a million dollars, you can have it. Ask for that little crippled girl to get up and walk, she can have it. Ask for anything. I..."
She said, "What shall I ask, Brother Branham?"
I said, "Anything that you wish, for THUS SAITH THE LORD." Oh, what a feeling.
L-75 She looked around. There set her aged gray-headed daddy that had been brought back from the dead almost. There set her aged mother, sickly. There set her little, crippled sister.
But she chose just what was right. She had two teen-age boys just in that age of reckless. Her precious husband gone on to glory; she was a Christian, waiting. But the boys wasn't a Christian. She said, "The souls of my two boys." God bless her heart.
I said, "THUS SAITH THE LORD, you have them."
And here they are, baptized into the faith. They was telling me the other night. Even that little bitty boy washing feet in there, putting his hands over on Brother Neville's head, and praying for him when he was washing feet.
The two little boys are probably setting here in the meeting somewhere this morning. Are they, Hattie, are they here with you? [Sister Hattie says, "They're in the back there."--Ed.] In back, in the back, Where are you, boys? Raise up your hands. Where is the two boys? There they are, standing back in the back. God bless you. All right. There you are.
Now, what happened? That same thing, no matter what, she'd a- happened; what she'd have asked, she could've had it. She could've got it.
L-76 Now, I'm wanting to see that happen. It's going to be the attitude of the people towards the message. See how she said it? She said just the right thing. It's what you say that does it. What you say...
Look at the Syrophenician woman when she come to Jesus. She said, "Lord, my daughter is grievously ve--vexed with a devil. Thou Son of David, come heal her."
He said, "It's not meet for Me to take the children's bread and give it to you dogs."
Whew. What if He'd have said that to some of us? We'd say, "Call me a dog? Huh, wasn't nothing to him anyhow. The big church is right. He ain't nothing but a holy-roller. He's nothing but a Beelzebub." We'd have had that attitude, but not her.
She said, "It's true, Lord. You're exactly right. But the dogs are willing to eat the scraps under the children's table."
That got Him. He said, "For this saying, the devil left your daughter. For this saying..." [Matthew 15:26-28]
L-77 It's your attitude, friends. Did not He say it? You've got to believe it, friends. You... Don't believe me, I'm a man; but you believe what I'm telling you; believe the message. If you don't believe the messenger, believe the message. If a man walked in the room there with a telegram, no matter who the--what the man looked like or who he was, big or little, you believe what's on the telegram, not the man. God sent me to tell you. I have a message. God sent me to tell you that He's risen from the dead, that He's here this morning. He's proved it by signs and wonders, that He's here, and each one of you can be healed of your sickness if you'll just take the right attitude as you come. Will you do that, while we sing "Only Believe."
Now, let those who are going to be prayed for, come right up here and line right up around here. Now, don't come unless you believe with all your heart.
Precious Lord, this is the hour. I pray that You'll heal these people, Lord. And sanctify this oil. Get glory unto Thyself, Father. We send these in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
L-78 I wonder if we could ask that those people that are standing on this side here, if there is a way that they could give just a little room here, so we can get the people right by, if we can right through here. [Someone ask a question--Ed.] Going out that way... Then they can all come this way, right down the line and make one line going out that way.
Something's got to happen, Brother Neville. [Brother Neville says, "Amen. It's happening right now. Praise the Lord. Jesus is here. Yes. Every one of them is healed by the power of God."-- Ed.] Amen.
[Brother Branham speaks to someone about the order for the prayer line--Ed.] What say? Right... No more, just right across there. Brother Neville and I here, we're going to pray for them right on the end. So can't them around this way, 'cause if you do, you going to... Just a minute.
L-79 Now, let me say to the waiting audience. This is God's Word, Who I--What I've lived by, and will die by, by God's grace and help. God being my solemn Judge, I've told you the truth. I seen, and all these things coming up to it. Even from the little fish that was raised down there, did you ever hear that story? There sets the men right back there, both of them, that was there when it happened; told the day before it happened. Now, how can I tell you these things which are? See, I want to preach on one of these nights, on Counterbalance. Man can tell you something, and just keep building like that, but if there ain't no Scripture to counterbalance it, it'll finally fall down. If this discernment, and these visions and things that I've told you about, if that hadn't been the truth... First thing, there is a Bible to back it up, and there was the Holy Spirit to prove that I have told the truth.
L-80 Now, I've been about fourteen years on the field, through every critic that could be got before me: educated, smart, everything else, not one time could they...
They... You know what they said? You've heard it here. They say, "People out in the audience will go around, talk to people." First they said it was people from my church that goes up there to be done. Then they couldn't get that; there's too many of them.
Next thing they said, that, "It would be like the brethren" that go with me, "they stand back there and say, 'This man's got it, hearing in his ears.'"
Then they said that, "Billy Paul, Billy Paul would come and--and--and go up there and read on the card, what the people say. If there'd something wrong with their ears, he'd say, 'their ears' or 'their stomach.'"
How, in the world, could them out there that don't have no prayer cards? How, in the world, can It foretell things and happen perfectly? How could it be that way? It couldn't be. Anyone knows, that's got their right mind.
L-81 They said the same thing about Jesus, when Philip went and got Nathanael. "He was a friend of Jesus." He said, "Sure, he told Jesus all about them. He's going after him."
And then them disciples said, or them disciples of the big church said, "This Man's Beelzebub. He is Beelzebub. He's a fortuneteller."
Jesus said, "I forgive you for that. But someday the Holy Ghost is coming to do this same thing; one word against That will never be forgiven." Now, if... [Matthew 27:32]
L-82 I have been honest with you people, just as honest as I knowed how to be. Oh, I might've contradicted some beliefs that you have in little theology and things. But, the reason that I do that, Paul said, "If an angel from heaven comes and preaches any other thing but what that Bible says," and what he's taught, "let him be accursed."
So I have to follow just what the Bible said. If the Bible said, "He's the same yesterday and forever," I believe that. Just whatever the Bible said, that's just exactly what I believe. I just say it like that. I didn't have any education, didn't have any training. I just li--listened to the Holy Spirit and the Bible. And so far, up to this Easter morning, for thirty-one years, He's never let me down. [Galatians 1:8], [Hebrews 13:8]
L-83 And I tell you that the Holy Spirit told me about that ministry coming on for the last two or three years, and I've been telling the churches everywhere. And the God Almighty being my Judge, right up here this side of Salem, them squirrels come into existence where there is no squirrels at. Right down there with Charlie, standing back there, and lots of them down here in Kentucky, them squirrels come right into places where they wasn't, told where it would be. Where Tony and them being setting there. And there it was, exactly. Come right back, and the first human being it was ever spoke on, was that woman setting right there, and there it is.
The other morning up there, when I was sick with that throat condition, I seen Jesus standing before me, and He told me that the ministry is already confirmed to me.
Now, what's to take place, I don't know. But, one thing, I have to lay aside the other to step out on this. The only way I know to do... Be it known now. Let this be graven, as Job said this morning, with an iron pen on a rock. I don't know what to do. The only thing I know is just stepping forward. He told me. And God's my Judge; He told me. I've told you the Truth. And if God has confirmed and told you, and not one time can anybody here ever put their hand on anything had been wrong. Then this is right too. It's right too.
L-84 Now, when I go here and stand at the end of the line. I'm having the elder, Brother Neville there, a godly man, our pastor here to anoint the people. I'm going to lay hands on the people, because Jesus' commission after Easter was, "Go, lay hands on the sick, they shall recover."
I don't know what He's going to tell me along the line. I'm going to try to feel for that super anointing. I don't know what will take place. I don't know. Whatever it is, I'll do just as He tells me.
Now, come by, come by with a heart full, no matter if He rebukes you, if He says nothing to you, regardless of what it is, you go away thanking Him. You see? 'Cause the work is done; it's some way to get to you. [Matthew 16:18]
L-85 Now, brother, with that leg, I want you to believe it. If He, by telephone could take that stomach trouble away from you, He could sure take that leg condition away from you this morning. See? Now, you believe with all your heart.
And the lady with that little baby that had the heart trouble, don't doubt no more. Believe; believe.
Now, I want everybody in the church to be in prayer. And I'm going down to pray. All of you just keep in prayer now, while I bring this prayer line through, asking, just putting my hands on there and saying a blessing.
And, remember, if any of you has got any unconfessed sin, be it known unto you that God will never heal you with that unconfessed sin. Make it right before you come through here, 'cause it might make you worse. See?
Now, it's not in discernment. Discernment I find them things out. But... And this is not discernment; I'm searching for a new ministry. All of you understand well? All right. Now, believe.
L-86 Now, let's pray as we bow our heads. Father God, my fingerprints are still on this pulpit from hours after hours, for now nearly thirty years or more, that I been standing here preaching, and around the world. And You have confirmed the Gospel that I have preached, because the message come from You. I never went to any schools, never consulted anybody but You, and reading Your Word and waiting to see what the Spirit would say do.
And now, Lord, Thou knowest about this ministry of Mark 11:23, and knowing that the hour is at hand, knowing that I have truthfully told about those squirrels, and about Sister Hattie and her boys... Now, Father, and knowing that that vision come to me up there in the--at the bed the other morning of seeing that Bible, and then the cross, and then You. And was revealed into my mind that I have to accept it, because it's confirmed.
L-87 Now, Lord, I go forward this morning in my church to stand here upon this Easter morning, praying that You'll raise me to a new gift, more powerful, for the people's sake: more powerful, not because of my salvation; because You have saved me, Lord, already; not for self; I've rejected all great things to know You. As You said to me out there at that great temple the other day, "I am your Portion." Now, Lord, let me be Your portion, if I can find favor with You, that Your Spirit will come in me. And when I lay my hands upon these precious, suffering people, may Your Spirit, Lord, do the rest of the work. That's all I know to do, Lord.
I remember my commission, I was born to pray for sick people. Get them to believe, and be sincere when you pray. Lord, I'm just... I don't know how to be any more sincere. I--I... They're suffering, Lord. And I--I've suffered, myself. Please, dear God, grant that they'll be healed, each one.
I go forward now, Lord, by faith, as Moses stepped towards the Red Sea. I step from this sacred pulpit down to this prayer line. In the Name of Jesus Christ, may the God Who gave me those squirrels, the God Who gave Sister Hattie those words, the God Who had me to speak them, may He go with me. I go in the Name of Jesus Christ.
[Some of Brother Branham's remarks are difficult to hear in the following prayer line--Ed.]

60-0515e - Branham Tabernacle, Jeffersonville, IN (Paragraphs: 81 - 100)
L-82 And I wanted to make this so efficient, if I wouldn't ask my brother to come here and anoint them with oil. Will you do that, Brother Neville? I'll ask the church if you'll bow in prayer.
Now, remember, last week when I was so sick with that old castor oil, I would just have give anything if somebody would've come by and laid hands on me. If I could've had somebody come by, that God had blessed and helped, I would so appreciate it. You all feel to now like I did then. You feel now you want me to do just like I wanted somebody to do for me then. God forbid I ever shirk the job. Let me always, whether I'm tired, where I'm weary, where I can hardly move one foot from the other, let me go, because I'm going to meet every one of you again over in that land over there.
L-83 Then you old women, older men, broken down, hair gray and falling away, and falling to pieces like a rose that's opened up its little bud, shed off its petals and dropping away, you're just coming to pieces, aren't you? That's right. Just... And the only thing you want to stay together for is to shine for the glory of God. So when the enemy has grabbed you now and run out, I'm coming with the slingshot of God, with a faith, with a gift that God give me. Here's what I said, so that you'll understand it. I said, "If Peter would just come in, or some of them..." Don't say that. You don't have to pray for me. Just come in like this, and say, like to this woman, say, "Are you Sister So-and-so?" What's your name? Sister Howard. Say, "You're Sister Howard. You're a believer, Sister Howard? You believe, you are a believer? Then, you see, you have rights to all the redemptive blessings." Then I'd say, "Sister Howard, everything will be all right, and walk away." Oh, how... I said, "I would scream; I'd shout." I'd say, "Lord, it's just got to be. It's just got to be."
And I thought, "Well, people think that same thing when I come pray for them." So that's what. You see what I mean?
L-84 And I've stood, a lot of times, and took people, and say, "Oh, precious sister, will you believe it? Oh, will you believe it?" "Lord, O God, make them believe It. Have them to believe It." "Oh, please, will you accept it now?" That's not it. I passed from that...?... I passed away from that. I just say this, "Sister Howard, you a believer?"
"Yes, I am."
"All right, Sister Howard, if you're a believer, you're a heir to everything that God has." And just take her hand. See, I believe that. I contact Sister Howard by laying my hands upon her. Jesus never said, "Pray for them," He said, "Just lay their hands on them." That's it, then she gets healed. She can say, "Everything will be all right," Sister Howard. Then go home and be well. God bless you.
L-85 You're sister? Sister Hamdon, you are a believer, aren't you? You're an heir to everything that He has. God be with you, Sister Hamdon. You go home and be well now; Jesus Christ will heal you. Amen.
You're sister? Slaugh. Brother Jack... You're the woman we prayed for out at the hospital the other day. You're a believer then, Sister Slaugh, a heir to all that we have. Sister Slaugh, may you receive what you've asked for and be well. God will grant it to you.
Brother Gene, you believe that God will heal you? And may the Lord God give to you, Gene, exactly what you ask for...?...
I know you now. All right. You are evangelist, sister. I know you. This is your husband there. He's the one I prayed for over the phone that day. I'll always remember that. Couldn't go to the meeting in Tulsa. Come to the meeting, and the Lord healed him, and send him on to the meeting. In proxy you stand for someone else, what a Christian thing it is, sister. See, He was in proxy also that He stood for all of us. You're a believer and have a right to everything that God promised. I'm His servant. And by the Name of Jesus Christ I give you what you ask for...?...
L-86 Come, Brother Bill. God bless you. Been awfully good to you. You're a believer; I know you are. I believe that God will give you everything you ask for, for you are a believer. And as His servant, to you, my brother, in the Name of Jesus Christ I give you the desire of your heart. Go now and receive it. God bless you.
Sister Bruce, I know you. The little nurse was at back me and you. She used to be down yonder the Motel J, J, Twin J, or something like that. You been standing for others. And what's your desire when asking Father? For yourself tonight... Then the enemy has jerked you beyond the doctor's reach; but I'm coming after you with a slingshot. And in the Name of Jesus Christ I direct the slingshot at the arrows--the rock that's got into the kidneys and blocked condition, and bring you back to...?... (See?) now, and bless you, through Jesus Christ's Name. Amen.
L-87 ...?... our father's name, sir. You a believer? That hurting in your side, low and on the left side... Do you believe that God will give it to you, sir? And it's His servant. Lord, this hand perhaps has done a many hard day's work, come here for a purpose, something to do. Give the desire of his heart, Father, as I pray in Jesus Name that You will. Amen.
Don't doubt; that hurting will stop you from hurting down there, and you'll be all right. God bless you, brother...?...
You are a believer, aren't you? You're a believer, and you're a--you're a heir to all these blessings. Thank you. Father, I bring this my sister into a line of...?... in the center of the target, and I bring her back to you from the enemy's clutch, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen. That's just the way it will be.
You don't want a operation. O Lord, as this young woman stands here, yet in the bloom of youth, I pray for her, and a lung that would have to be taken out, and she'd stoop the rest of her life. You're our Father, and I aiming the fire of prayer right at her, Lord, right straight to that lung. I send this prayer in Name of Jesus Christ; may it be like that...?... in the Name of Jesus Christ...?... Amen.
L-88 You're a Christian? Sister Dird...?... head is drawn from me. You are a believer and an heir to all God's blessings, Sister Dird. Lord, I bring her to You with this little sling that You give me. As You give David a sling to watch his father's sheep, and if the enemy come in after the sheep, he wasn't afraid; he grabbed up that little sling and went right after lions and--and bears, and he brought the sheep back. This is a prayer of faith. You told me if I'd get the people to believe and be sincere... I bring Sister Dird back tonight. I snatch her from the hands of the enemy. She's Your sheep. I bring her back to the Father's fold, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
Sister Lowe, high blood pressure... And you're a believer, are you, Sister Lowe, a heir to all the blessings? Then, Father God, I aim this prayer tonight as from the sling of God for Sister Lowe's high blood pressures. May the next time the physicians takes the blood pressure, may he look at her and say, "It's normal now." She'll know what did it. In the Name of Jesus Christ I give it to her. Amen.
L-89 Yes... I wished I had my daddy here tonight that I could offer prayer for him right now. I will for yours too. I understand.
Heavenly Father, the man that sired this boy, that he's here on earth tonight because of him. And his own son desires that his father will be brought back, way out yonder in the world of sin, alcoholic. O Lord, I'm sending this prayer with faith and strength, and with all that I can throw it, this--this little pebble in the Name of the Lord Jesus, I sling it at that devil that's put that...?... on there...?... and may he come safely to the fold in Jesus' Name. Amen. Amen.
You have a desire too? You want to come into the land where all the promises is. Now, Lord, this boy is just across the river, camped on the other side and Jordan is swelling. And there's no way for him to cross except You make a way like You did for Joshua and for Israel. And, Father, I am asking You as Your servant; let our precious brother, O God, let him enter into this promised land, this promise that on the other side as I was carried the other night... May I have the privilege of grabbing and throwing my arms around him in that other land, saying, "My precious brothers." Grant it, Lord. May he receive the promise of God, the Holy Ghost. Amen.
L-90 O Lord, this is my gracious brother. This hand has been kind to me, has been standing for me at untold hours. He believes and has faith. And now, an enemy tries to grab, this my friend. Sugar... And he thinks that it--he can grab this boy; but I come after him. I'm coming to bring back Your own, Lord, slinging this rock with a zerod faith in the Name of Jesus Christ I fight that sugar diabetes he's...?..., bring back Your own sheep to the fold, Father, in the Name of Jesus. Amen.
A gland... O Lord, our sister knows that this overweight is, so the doctor says, is a thing that kills. Each pound overweight takes a year off, according to the insurance chart. And she wants to live to the honor and praise of God. And there's no doctor can do this, Father God; it's just in--in Your hand. And Sister Bell's been very faithful, and she's been kind and considerate...?... She's went through many deep trials; I come for her tonight, Lord. I come to meet that enemy yonder. And I aim with all the accuracy that I can aim with; in the Name of Jesus Christ I hurl that stone of faith at this enemy that's got her. May it scatter him, and run him away from her, and she be able to be restored back to shady green pastures and to still waters, through Jesus Christ. Amen.
It shall be, Sister Bell. Just don't doubt.
L-91 Sister Spencer? [A sister testifies--Ed.]...?... I certainly do sister...?... God bless you. Amen...?... loved one's saved...?... Yes, sir, I know all about it. We all claim it, Sister Spencer, and know that how her and Brother Jesse are going through the...?... whether to come down to the church here. When I cross over the other side, they won't be toddling along like this; they'll be young, oh, Brother Jesse...?... all of that. You all know how just--just across the little...?... yonder, you go back to that lovely young girl again, and Brother Jesse to the young boy. God promised you.
Now, look. I want to give you just a little teeny bit of teaching, being that you're the last one here. I want get... 'Cause I know this is your little boy, Charlie. You want it to be prayed for...?...
L-92 I want to say this one thing. Did you ever read in the Scripture where the Bible said this? Paul told the Roman Centurion (Can you hear me all right?), told the Roman when he pulled his sword to kill hisself up at Philippi when he was in jail. And a--the earthquake shook the jail down. He said, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thy and thy house shall be saved." Did you ever hear that? "Thy and thy house..."
Now, look. If you had faith enough for salvation for yourself, can't you also have faith enough for your child? God will some way...?... And Lord, I pray for Sister Spencer and Brother Spencer tonight, that every child--them and their children will all be in that glorious happy land there where there'll be no sickness or no old age, no sorrow or disappointment, and all this little life here will fade into a nightmare that's passed by. May they receive this, and may all of her children, and her husband, all of her loved ones, and all that love her, and all that she loves, may they be there with her, in Jesus' Name. God bless you, sister. Eighty-two years old. You're getting down...?... Just like the world is falling apart, Sister Spencer. [Acts 16:31]
L-93 Well, you're just ready to go to rest, you see...?... all the time...?... just--just keep your faith right in Him...?... you'll cross over...?... And just as sure as I stand here at this...?... tonight, Sister Spencer, by His grace I'll see you and Jesse across the border yonder, young and free. You'll all be running, hollering, "My brother, my brother." I'll see you.
It's her nerves. Father God, this girl would have a breakdown, and she's got to reach...?... as only...?... what hinders. But I come for her tonight. I come to You, Father. I come asking You to direct the shot that I shall fire. May it be exactly zeroed, the crosshairs right on his...?... May this prayer in the Name Jesus Christ strike that nervousness and tear it to pieces, bring back this sheep of God's pasture. Amen. It just has to be now, honey...?...
God of heaven, grant that her six children that she desires to be saved... She's heard that testimony of Brother Daulton, his lovely daughters. She desires her six children, Father. May she have them. May they meet her in that land where there is no night, safely protected and sheltered by the Blood of Jesus Christ. Amen. May you have it, sister, is my prayer.
L-94 I believe... There's nothing hardly can help it: they give them a little stuff that looked like a--oh, something like an acetomin; it's a... Cortisone, they call it, and that--that kills you though, tear's your blood up so...?... But the... See that the arthritis is like the lion who grabs the sheep and runs way away. Now, what will a slingshot do? Oooh, my, there's a big roaring lion with a lamb. And he loves the lamb, so he's run off with the lamb; but David took the slingshot and went after him. See, now watch. He had five rocks: f-a-i-t-h, himself, i-n. His sling was in this hand: J-e-s-u-s. He's a dead shot. Something has to happen; let's go after that arthritis tonight by this prayer, may God give it to you.
She wants to be baptized in the Name... You want her to be baptized...?... Thank you, sister. Not because that that's the way...?... It isn't because... Now, if that was in the Bible for Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, I--I'd believe in that and stay right with it you see. I--I wouldn't want to be any different. I--I--I'd want that...?... I wouldn't want... I--I'm going to be responsible for that. You see? And I've got to say it just the way that that say it, not to be different, but to be honest.
L-95 Now, Father, we come for her loved ones. She's got arthritis and here she wants her to be baptized in the Name of the Lord Jesus, for that is the entrance; that's the open gate. That's where Joshua opened up one path that crossed over into the promised land. There was no two or three places opened up; there was just one.
Peter, on the day of Pentecost, when the was church first inaugurated, opened up a path, said, "Repent every one of you, and be baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ." Never did they vary from that same path; each one crossed into the promised land. Some of them were trying to get across way down at another ford, and Paul said to him, "Unto what was you baptized? Where are you trying to cross at?"
And they said, "Down here where John looked."
He said, "Well, John only pointed to the time and the place." And then when they heard this, they were baptized at the right ford, and they went across into...?... Spirit life.
Grant it to our sister and her loved ones, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen. [Acts 2:38]
L-96 Brother Lyle... Oh... Yes...?... That and vision He give...?... It's over now though. God bless you. You're on the road to the promised land now, brother...?...
How many here remembers of just before this ministry was confirmed to me and me being fishing with a man one day, down to a river, a lake? And I was catching little fishes, and the Holy Spirit came upon me. There was a... This man is a Jehovah Witness, was. His brother's here somewhere, Banks Wood. He's in here somewhere, which is my neighbor. This is Lyle. And these people were Jehovah Witness. And they said one day when we was fishing down there after this boy got converted, I told him that it was something in his life, and all what taken place, and all about it, which he's just now told me, and he's just now got it out of his life. That's right. Praise the Lord. It's exactly right. His father was the one that was a--a reader. Is...?... in the building? And he and his wife both was baptized to bear witnesses in the Name of Jesus Christ here in the pool. And this man was setting by him, my brethren.
L-97 Banks, where are you? Is he inside? Back in the corner. Yes. And we were fishing. And brother, my little boy had killed... I thought he'd killed a kitten a few days before that. A little old mother cat had a bunch of little kittens and he'd picked it up and dropped it. And I thought... And I said, "The Lord is going to raise a little life as--up, the day before. Is that right, Lyle? Standing out there in the cold. And I said, "That's THUS SAITH THE LORD."
And we fished all night and caught nothing. The next morning, we were fishing back in a little cove for some bluegill; that's small fish. And Brother Lyle had a big a pole, and he let a little bluegill swallow the big hook he had, till when he pulled it out, the little strand was all the way down, the big hook in the little bluegill's belly. And when he pulled it out, he just had to pull the entrails and everything else out of the little bluegill to get it and just pulled it all out, 'cause the big hook had got caught down in the fish's belly. And when he did, he threw it down on the water, and he just quivered four or five times, and that was it; because his entrails and gills was hanging out of his mouth. And he floated around there for about a half hour, floated back up into the bushes.
L-98 And I was setting there fishing, and all of a sudden the Holy Spirit come, said, "Speak to that fish."
I said, "Little fishy, Jesus Christ gives you your life again," and that little fish, laying dead on the water, turned over on his side and went rrrrrrttt, out into the water as fast as it could go.
Brother Lyle, Brother Wood is setting present. Brother Lyle said, "Brother Branham, that was for me because I said to the little...?... said, "I--I ain't...?..." He said, when he pulled the entrails out of him and throwed him out there, said, "You shot your last wad, little fellow," just like that. Throwed it out, he said, "It--it meant me."
And I said, "No, Brother Lyle, that wasn't it."
Brother Banks back there said, "How many people in this world, how many thousands, would love to be standing where we're standing right now to see the power of God come down and perform of something like that?" In other words, he's like... I believe we all felt like Peter did, "It's good to be here. Let's build three tabernacles." That's right.
L-99 Now, Brother Lyle, you're anointed of the Holy Spirit now. You've left Egypt; the garlic pots and the filth of the world is left behind. You're standing down on the Jordan bank now, just across yonder. May God take you over.
Almighty God, here's Your trophy. He sure would've been in awful fix, Lord, but my heart went for him. Our prayers just struck the very chilling blow yonder, for the very thing that held him is gone from him. It's been smashed, and now he's walking down into the Jordan. Take him to the promised land, Lord, and seal him among the people, that on that glorious day when we shall meet yonder, may I feel the warmth of his arms screaming, "My precious brother." And I know...?... Bring Banks along with him, Lord, will You? Papa, mama, and all of them, sister, and all that great family. May we all meet yonder, Lord, and every one of them be filled with the Holy Ghost. I pray in Jesus' Name. Amen.
You will receive It, brother. God bless you, brother. Yes, Brother...?...
L-100 There's someone dying on a long distance call; I'll turn the service to Brother Neville while...?...
[Brother Neville speaks and leads the congregation in dismissal prayer. Brother Branham returns and speaks--Ed.]

Grant tonight...?... he was a wonderful man, for I send prayer after him, in the Name of Jesus Christ...?... is the hour that his pulse...?... went from him...?... his pulse...?... eyes set in his head...?... dropped in the pulpit...?...
This is still open? Can I have your attention?...?... a young evangelist, a preacher up here in Indiana was preaching, dropped dead in the pulpit just about a hour ago, while he was preaching fell forward, and died in the pulpit, a noted evangelist, a preaching up here at Indiana. The pastor just come and has was called me. He died right while preaching under the anointing of the Spirit, fell forward, his eyes set, his respiration left him. He's pronounced dead, been laying dead for an hour. And something told them to call the church and have me to pray. So I sent prayer to bring him back in the Name of the Lord Jesus.
