62-0119 - Jesus Name Church, Phoenix, AZ (Paragraphs: 81 - 97)
L-82 Now, friends, on Divine healing, there is--there is no man that can heal you, no more than any man can save you; because both healing and salvation are past tense. When Jesus Christ died at Calvary, He was wounded for our transgressions, with His stripes we were healed. It is a finished work. Now, the only thing that you have to do to receive either your salvation or your healing, is to accept what Christ did for you.
As I said the other night, let's look at God just a moment, way back there in eternity, when His--when a hundred billion suns would look black to Him, when Angels looked dirty in His sight. That's Jehovah. And then, He become a little baby over a manure pile in a manger. That's still Jehovah. And here He is tonight. Through His grace and through His Blood He cleanses His church and puts us in position to receive all these blessings that He paid for for us. [Isaiah 53:5], [Job 15:15]
L-83 Now, here stands a line of people. I never seen any of them in life, as I know of. Now, many of you has been in my meetings and know what discernment is. All of you know that, don't you? We know that. I've had it over, and over, and over, and over. That is a gift.
That doesn't make the Holy Spirit in me any greater than anybody else. That's just a gift to work with the Holy Spirit. See? No matter if it's a little housewife, or the little boy, or the drunkard out there that's just got saved and filled with the Holy Ghost, he's got the same Holy Spirit that any of us has got. Yes. But God gives gifts with this Holy Spirit to work. It's a confirmation to lift up an ensign. Who? The preacher? No. To lift up Christ.
L-84 Now, I don't know what ever happened. When I was a little boy... You know my story. I've just prayed for people. There's not a thing I do but just pray, lay hands on them, they'd get well. See? So what could I do? Not only me praying, but look at the others who are praying. Everybody's praying. See? And just, I believe it. That's all I know to do. I believe it.
Now, I'm uneducated, have not any education. And I--I think the Lord just give me a little gift to work by. And--and now, when Jesus said when He was here on earth, of the things that He did we would do also... And if that is so, and He was God's Ensign by doing that, by being able to tell Philip where he was at, tell a woman about her blood issue and whatmore, and--and where the coin was in the fish's mouth, or something like that, something that the woman that--she was living in adultery, or anything like that--that sure was a confirmation He was the Messiah.
L-85 Now, look at that staunch Jew, Philip. When Philip or Nathanael, came. Nathanael was a scholar, a real orthodox. And when he seen Jesus, he couldn't hardly believe Him. And He said, "Behold an Israelite in whom is no guile."
He said, "When did You know me, Master?"
He said, "Before Philip called you."
He said, "Rabbi, Thou art the Son of God, the King of Israel."
The woman at the well said, "I have no husband."
He said, "Yes, you have five."
She said, "We know when Messiah cometh He will tell us those things. But Who are You?"
He said, "I'm He." We know that that's going to be the ensign. And if Jesus Christ is the same ensign yesterday, today, and forever, He will do the same thing if He can get a hold of the human heart. Is that right? [John 1:47-49], [John 4:17-18, 25]
L-86 Now, this lady standing here, I don't know her, never seen her. We're strangers to one another, aren't we? That's right. If God will tell me what your trouble is, will you believe me? You know whether it's right or not, won't you? Would you accept your healing then? It's in your back. It's finished. You're healed. That's how...?... Now, go on. God bless you. God bless you. Go believing...?...
Do you--you believe with all your heart? See? Just have faith, don't doubt. Believe. Now, you see how simple it is? Now, if we just pray. Now, see, He knows what--every one of you, what's wrong with you. You believe that, don't you? You know that's right.
Now, if I just take this lady here, and say I won't say a thing about it, but just pray, and lay hands on you, you believe you will get healed? You believe you will be healed? All right. Bow your head just a moment. Heavenly Father, I pray that You'll heal our sister. May she go now. We see the ensign lifted up; we know that He will draw all. I lay hands upon my sister in the Name of Jesus Christ for her healing, in Jesus' Name. Amen. Don't doubt. Just believe with all your heart.
L-87 I say... If I wouldn't say one thing, just prayed for you, you still would believe it, wouldn't you? You'd believe it anyhow. But if I tell you, would it help you? Your heart trouble... That's right.
Would it help you if I told you what was wrong with you? You don't know whether it would help you or not. Well, perhaps I'll just pray for you. Heavenly Father, I pray that You'll help the woman. Give her faith and strength in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen. Believe now with all your heart.
What do you think, sister? I'm a stranger to you. If Jesus would tell me what's wrong with you... I'm not? You know me, huh? You saw me when I first come. That's good. I mean I don't know you. The first time? It's been about fifteen years ago. Fifteen years ago. My, it's been a long time. Lot of--lot of things has happened since then. Well, you would have to be operated on. But if you believe Christ, that tumor will leave you, and you won't have to be operated on. You believe it? Then go, believe it.
L-88 How do you do? I have seen you. Do you believe if I ask God He will heal you? Our heavenly Father, I pray that You'll heal her and make her well, Father. I lay hands upon her in Jesus' Name. Amen...?... Believe with all your heart, and you--you...?...
All right, come right ahead, sister. Now, you see, I cannot heal people; and God cannot heal people unless they believe that Christ has already did it. And now, you say... I preached tonight on something you could put your hands on. He will say, "Here it is."
Now, see, if Jesus was standing here Himself, wearing this suit that He put upon Brother Williams' heart to give me... But He... If He--if He was standing here wearing this suit... Do you know, I believe he gave it to the Lord when he did that?
L-89 How many ever read the life of St. Martin? He was a pagan, and he was a soldier. His father wanted him to be a soldier. And he didn't want to be. He... Just something called him about God. And one night passing down, a real cold winter night, there was an old, poor old bum laying in the street freezing to death. And people passed by who could've helped him, they didn't do it. Martin had give everything he had away.
So he said, "There's only one thing to do. I got one coat." So he just took his sword, cut the coat half in two, wrapped the bum up in it, like that, and he went on with the other half. The people laughed at him, and said, "How ignorant. Isn't he a handsome looking soldier now with half a coat on?"
He never paid any attention, went on, 'cause he knowed it was what he was to do. That night in the barracks he woke up, and when he did he seen Jesus standing there wrapped in that piece of coat that he'd wrapped the bum in.
And He looked around to the angels, and He said, "Do you know who wrapped Me in this?"
They said, "No."
He said, "Martin did."
There you are. And he become a saint, speaking in tongues, and casting out devils, seeing visions: a mighty prophet of God. Yes, sir. Why? When he wrapped that old beggar up in the street, he wrapped up Jesus Christ. "Insomuch as you have done it unto the least of these My little ones, you have done it unto me." [Matthew 25:45]
L-90 And to be sure that you wrap in the righteousness of Christ, I'm trying to tell you tonight... If I had power to heal you, I'd heal every one of you. See? But I'm trying to show you by a gift that what I preached, that God is vindicating it to be so (See?), that I cannot heal people, but to let you know that He's here.
You believe that, lady? Then your arthritis will leave you. Do you believe it will? Then go on your road, and shout, and say, "Praise the Lord. I believe it with all my heart."
That was a funny thing that I said arthritis to her, and you had the same thing. Just go--just go on, and say, "I believe with all my heart," and it shall--it shall be done.
L-91 Now, do you believe God will heal your stomach and you go home and eat like you ought to? Then go right ahead home and eat like you ought to. Believe now. Do you believe with all your heart? "If I--if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto Me."
Now, do you believe the Holy Spirit's here? If I just laid hands on you, you will be healed? In the Name of Jesus, may she be healed. "These signs shall follow them that believe. In my Name..." Just believe now, as you pass by.
Come right ahead, sister. In the Name of Jesus Christ... Everybody pray now. See, too many of them visions break me down. In the Name of Jesus, I pray that You'll heal our sister.
I seen you raise your hand there, that you believe. Believe now. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray that You'll heal her. [John 12:32], [Mark 16:17]
L-92 Come, sister. Father God, "nothing in my arms I bring; simply to thy cross I cling." I ask for her healing in Jesus' Name. Amen.
Father God, in the Name of Jesus Christ, may our sister be healed. Amen.
Come, my precious brother. In the Name of Jesus Christ, may my brother be healed.
Do you believe that God will heal and make him well? In the Name of Jesus Christ, may this child be healed. Now, just watch as he's been prayed for now.
In the Name of Jesus Christ, may our sister be healed. In the Name of the Lord Jesus, may our sister be healed.
In the Name of the Lord Jesus, may our sister be healed.
In the Name of Jesus Christ, may our brother be healed.
In the Name of Jesus Christ, may my sister be healed.
L-93 Now, keep in prayer, everybody, real quietly. In the Name of Jesus Christ, may our sister be healed.
O God, give back to this little girl what Satan took away. Come out of her, Satan, in the Name of Jesus Christ.
In the Name of Jesus Christ, may our brother be healed.
In the Name of Jesus Christ, may our sister be healed.
In the Name of Jesus Christ, may our sister be healed.
In the Name of Jesus Christ, may our sister be healed.
In the Name of the Lord Jesus, may our sister be healed.
In the Name of the Lord Jesus, may our sister be healed.
In the Name of Jesus Christ, may our sister be healed.
L-94 Now, in the audience, everyone... I know you never got enough prayer cards out there. I want you to bow your heads just a moment. I want to ask you a question. Two thousand years ago there was a man... Four thousand...?... about twenty-five hundred years ago there was a--God came down represented in a man, and set at the--the oak tree of Abraham, turned His back to the wall, or to the tent, told Sarah what was the trouble on the inside. Jesus said as it was in that day, so will it be in the coming of the Son of man. Jesus was God's Ensign. "The works that I do shall you also." We see it. It's true, without a doubt. [Luke 17:26-30], [John 14:12]
L-95 Now, the reason I didn't go no farther, I got so many meetings. I'll be back to Phoenix someday, with a great meeting, the Lord willing. Now, to you here tonight that's sick and needy, and didn't get a prayer card to come to the altar, up here to be prayed for, I'm going to pray for you now. I want you to be real reverent. I want each one of you believers to lay your hands over on one another as a--as a sign.
Now, the Bible said... Now, this same God that made this promise said this: "These signs shall follow them that believe. If they lay their hands on the sick, they shall recover." Any believer, any believer that's got the Holy Spirit, you have the power of God within you, or the authority to pray the prayer of faith. I want you to pray, while I pray for these people. [Mark 16:17-18]
L-96 Our heavenly Father, we are happy tonight--preach the Word, and then see God come down and confirm the Word. Then that--that's the ensign. You promised.
One day a long time ago there was a little boy named David. He was taking care of his father's sheep. He was given a charge to watch these sheep, to keep the enemy from them. He had very little to protect himself with, just a little slingshot.
But one day a lion came into the camp, and it took out one of the lambs. David, being a true shepherd, he wanted to hold that father's sheep. He knew that lion was stealing that sheep and he would devour the sheep. And the sheep belonged to his father. He went after the lion with bold courage. He slung a little rock, and it knocked the lion down. And he slew the lion, and he brought back the sheep to the fold. [I Samuel 17:34-40]
L-97 Now, God, we are your shepherds. We are not men of knife operations or of--of medicine cures. We have a very humble little thing, a slingshot. But that's what you've put in our hands: a slingshot of prayer. The enemy has come in, and grabbed a hold of God's sheep. It's grabbed fathers, and mothers, and children, dragging them out through the bushes: retarded minds, and blind, and cancer-eaten, and devils.
Satan, this little slingshot of prayer seems very simple, but I know what it'll do. I'm coming after that sheep tonight to bring it back. Come out. Let him alone. Come out of that person, thou evil spirit of sickness, and leave him. I adjure thee in the Name of Jesus Christ, leave and don't come back to them any more. May God of heaven rebuke thee, Satan.
Jesus of Nazareth said, "If you say to this mountain, 'Be moved,' and don't doubt in your heart but believe what you said, you shall have what you said." Therefore, in the Name of Jesus Christ I speak deliverance to everyone here. By the...
Satan, you might say we have not the authority to do this. We're holding up to you the ensign tonight. Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, is here proving that this is God's ensign, and you've lost the battle. Come out in the Name of Jesus Christ. [Matthew 21:21], [Mark 11:23]

62-0120 - Assembly Of God, Phoenix, AZ (Paragraphs: 106 - 117)
L-107 Now, heavenly Father, You know my heart. And I don't come to this to make a platform show of You, Lord. You don't have to do this. If You don't want to do it, Father, it's not in Your Divine will, then just shut if off. We feel that the Holy Spirit has been here and blessed us.
But being that I spoke on that subject, "I am God and change not"... Then when You walked here in a human form on earth, Immanuel, a little woman touched the garment one day, and she was with such a faith that He felt it. And Your Word says, Father, that tonight that Jesus, Your Son, is our High Priest, and He can still be touched by the feeling of our infirmities. [Luke 8:44], [Mark 5:30], [Hebrews 4:15]
L-108 There are those in here that are sick. I pray, Father, that You'll let them, at least one, or two, or something in here, Lord, that the people might have something to hold onto, like Jacob, and know that it's the Holy Spirit, and never turn it loose until they're blessed... May... If You'll just do that, Lord, every sick person in here will take a hold of that same promise, and stay right with it until they are assured in their heart that the blessing of God rests upon them.
Now, I commit this audience to You, the message and myself, for Your works. It's beyond what I can do, or anyone else can do from here-forth, Lord, it has to be You. So prove Yourself present, the same yesterday, today, and forever: the unchangeable God. In the Name of Jesus Christ, I ask this. Amen. [Hebrews 13:8]
L-109 Now don't, feel His Spirit, see, it like, in that way, it's a gift. That don't mean it's any more Holy Spirit than what a little child would have. It's just a gift that goes with the Holy Spirit to make the Word live. Now, this, you don't have to... If He would do it, you don't have to worry. It's--it's the Word made manifest. It's the Word made manifest.
Now, I just want each one of you people to think this in your heart. Just--just think this. You don't have to pray it out loud; just pray it yourself. "Lord, I'm sure that Brother Branham knows nothing about me. He don't know my disease; he don't know nothing about me. And I'm not trying to touch that minister. But he has told us so plainly that You were a High Priest, and I've read it. And I'm asking You, just let him speak to me as Jesus spoke to the woman at the--that touched his garment. And just..." [Hebrews 4:15], [Matthew 9:20-22], [Mark 5:27-34]
L-110 Or, if you're not sick, say, "Lord Jesus, let... I've always been a little skeptic of this, of anything in the supernatural. But I'd really like to have something I could put my hand on. So let him speak to So-and-so in here. I'm praying for him, or her. Let it--let him speak like that. I'll believe."
It'll take it all away from you. That'll be something that you can put your hands on, like Jacob, and say, "This is it." He took a hold of God one time and said, "Here I am. I can hold it." Would it make you all believe? If you would, raise up your hands. Say, "Just--just raise faith in me" all around, "if I could see it done." God bless you. I don't say that He will. I trust that He will. [Genesis 49:28]
L-111 One time, coming down off of a mountain, He said, "All things are possible, if you can only believe," to the epileptic boy's father. If we can just believe... Someone who's sick and needy, believe, believe with all your heart. "If thou canst believe, all things are possible."
"What do you say you're waiting on, Brother Branham?" Everyone in here, no doubt, has been to Phoenix so many times have seen it. Preaching a message like this... But it's a Light. They've got a picture of it. Any of you... Most all of you have seen the light. Haven't you? They got it on the pictures and things, where it's in Washington, DC They got it again here the other day. See? That bears record of itself. [Mark 9:23]
L-112 It's the Pillar of fire that led the children of Israel through the wilderness. That Pillar of fire was made flesh and dwelt among us. Jesus said, "I come from God and I go to God." After His resurrection He ascended on high. And when He did, He met Paul on the road to Damascus, and He was back a Light again. Paul could see it. The rest of them couldn't see it. It even made him blind. He was blind. And he said he seen this light there, shining like the sun. He said, "Lord, who are you?
He said, "I'm Jesus, and it's hard for you to kick against the pricks."
Now, that same Light, the picture of it... If that is this Light... If that is the same Pillar of fire, the same Jesus that was on the road to Damascus--Paul--it'll do the same works. It's got to be.
Here it is. Praise the Lord. Thank you, Lord Jesus. Now, let Satan try to say something. [Acts 9:5], [Acts 26:14]
L-113 This little lady setting here with the blue dress on, with sinus trouble, praying, you believe with all your heart and it'll leave you. Will you believe it? All right then, you can have it. I never seen the woman, never seen her in my life. Them things are true, aren't they, lady? If they are, raise your hand back and forth. You was praying about that, "Lord, let him..." Have faith.
Here sits a nice little lady setting right back here with a little fur coat or something on. There's that Light. Can't you see that hanging right over that woman there? That woman's in a serious condition. I don't know her, never seen her in my life. If we're strangers, raise up your hand. But... Listen, isn't this true? A real strange feeling is around you, a real sweet, humble feeling. That's that Light. I'm looking right at It. Here. You have tumor. Not only tumor, but tumors. They're all over you. That's right, isn't it? You believe? God heal you and make you well. Have faith. You believe?
L-114 Here, a little lady raised her hand right back here, setting behind this child in a wheelchair. I don't know that lady, never seen her. We're strangers, aren't we, lady? But you're praying for heart trouble, that God will heal you. If that's right, wave your hand like this. Jesus healed you. Go home and be well.
You believe with all your heart now? "If thou canst believe, all things are possible." Have faith. Don't doubt it. Just believe with all... [Mark 9:23]
L-115 Here sits a woman right over here, setting right down a couple of women from Mrs. Sharritt. She's setting there praying. She's got arthritis. Believe it, lady. You believe it? All right. Receive it.
It shall be light in the evening time.
The Bible said it would be. The unchangeable God... Tell me Who they touched. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. I, solemnly, with both hands up, I've never seen those people before, know nothing about them. But He Who's present now, you couldn't hide your life if you had to. That's right. He's here. He's Christ. It's real. It's His promise. The same God. Can't you take a hold of it? Grab a hold of it and say, "It's mine; now I believe." [Zechariah 14:7], [Hebrews 13:8]
L-116 Heavenly Father, I bring this audience to you, these sick people. They're in need. As we quoted last night, there was a little sheepherder one time by the name of David. He was given a charge to take care of his father's sheep. There's many of the shepherds setting here tonight too, Lord. And he didn't have very much to protect himself and to protect the sheep, but just a slingshot. That was enough.
One day a lion came in, and got one of his sheep, took it out. David knew that the God of heaven was with him, and he grabbed this slingshot and went after the sheep. And he slew the lion, knocked him down with the slingshot, and brought the sheep back alive. [I Samuel 17:34-37]
L-117 Father, sickness, the devil, more than lions has caught many of your sheep. I got a little slingshot here. It's called prayer and faith. It's not much to look at up beside of the weapons of medical science, but God, You direct this prayer to that place there.
Satan, turn them loose. I'm coming after that sheep. Turn them loose. I'm bringing them back to Father's pasture again tonight. In the Name of Jesus Christ, I rebuke every devil of sickness, casting them out of this people. May they go free from this hour on, through the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
All who believe your healing, stand up to your feet, and say, "I now accept my healing. I put my hands on this, that it's Christ, and I believe it with all my heart." Your pastor...

62-0122 - Assembly Of God, Tempe, AZ (Paragraphs: 118 - 153)
L-119 Now, if you got your cards, come on, friends. Don't--don't--don't stay back, 'cause you're cheating somebody else out of it. You see? Don't be afraid to come. If you took your card, come on. If they give you a card...
Now, the boy comes with these cards first. He stands up here and mixes them up together, fifty, or a hundred, or whatever he does. Goes right down the line, giving anybody... One person might get 1, the other one 10, the other one 50, the other one 90, like that. We don't know where they're at. They're all scattered out. That leaves the boy so he don't know what... Then the boy don't know where I'm going to call from that night, 'cause... See?.. I don't know myself.
L-120 I might start... How many's been in the meetings before, and know I just jump all around through it? That's all right. See? So many times people are afraid to come up, because their sins are called out here. Now, if you've done anything wrong, and you don't want it called out, you better stay out (that's all), 'cause He will certainly do it. How many knows that to be true? Certainly is true. Now, if you're--if you're condemned and under sin, why, don't you come.
But if you're not, if you're under the Blood, come on. See? All right. Now, all right. Well, we'll start right here, and see where we can go to.
L-121 Now, how many in here is sick, and come in, and didn't get a prayer card, too late, or something? Raise up your hands, all around, over the building. All right. Don't have a prayer card...
Now. There was a little woman passed through a crowd. Maybe she didn't have a prayer card, but she touched the hem of His garment. That did it. All right. Touched the hem of His garment, and she was made whole.
Now, you out there that believe with all your heart, you that actually believe this with all your heart, you just say, "Lord Jesus, I do believe this with all my heart, and I'm going to accept You, and believe that... I know that Brother Branham doesn't know me, or know anything about me. And if You'll just let me touch Your garment..." [Matthew 9:19-22], [Luke 8:43-48], [Mark 5:25-34]
L-122 Now, the Bible says (Now the ministers will witness this), the Bible says that Jesus Christ is a High Priest right now, that can be touched by the feeling of our infirmities (Is that true?), a High Priest that can be touched by the feeling of our infirmities. He is right now. Well, then, if He is a High Priest that can be touched by the feeling of our infirmities, how would that High Priest act when He was touched?
If He's the same Jesus that He was back there, He'd act the same way. He can't change His ways. He can't. If He said back there, "Well, I saved them because of--that they believed on Me; but today I--I'm going to save them because they got a lot of money," He can't do that. He's got to ever remain with His first attitude. See? When God ever makes a decision, it's perfect. It can never be changed no more. God never changes His program. See? [Hebrews 4:15]
L-123 So if He's a High Priest that can be touched by the feeling of our infirmities, and you touched Him with your faith... [Hebrews 4:15]
Now, He don't have any hands on earth but mine and yours. Is that right? "I am the Vine; ye are the branches." Now, the vine doesn't bear fruit, does it? The branches bears fruit. So the vine just energizes the branch. But see, the branch... The vine isn't made to... See, He's in glory. He's the Holy Spirit. Now, He doesn't bear the fruit, but He energizes you and I that we would understand one another, through voices that He speaks through us, and does His work to confirm the commission that we're sent to do. You understand it now, everybody? [John 15:5]
L-124 Now, you pray and you say, "Lord Jesus, I'm going to believe this with--with all my heart. I--I--I'm going to truly believe it with all that's in me. And I believe that You're going to--to make me whole. And I'm going to, with all my heart, try to touch the border of Your garment, trusting that You'll make me well."
You just believe that, or a loved one.
Now, I'm going to ask you, with whatever... Now, you know I'm Pentecostal. I--I believe in shouting, praising the Lord. But I'm going to ask you to do this. Now, when we're coming, I want you to be just as reverent as you can. Now, just hide yourself away now. Lay all your doubts away and just say, "Now, Lord, help Thou me." God will do it, if you'll just believe it.
L-125 Now, here stands a woman. I have never seen her in my life. Now, ever who is on this here, sometimes I don't know what I'm saying, if it strikes me... It's a vision. Now, if you... Can you hear me all right now? All right. Now, just be real reverent.
Now, here stands a woman. Now, here's a beautiful Bible picture. We're strangers to each other. I don't know you. Now, you might know me by knowing I'm Brother Branham, but I don't know you by any way.
L-126 Now, this is a picture like it was in St. John 4. Jesus met a woman that He'd never seen, or she never knowed Him. She knew He was a Jew, but that's all she knew. And then, Jesus talked to this woman a little while. What was He doing? He was contacting her spirit. See? He had need to go by Samaria, and as He went by Samaria, He met this woman. Why? The Father led Him to Samaria. "Go up to Samaria."
He didn't know what to do. This woman come out, and He thought, "Maybe this is what Father wants," because He said... After He'd healed the man at the... that had the crippled, not crippled, but I guess he might've had a retarded disease... [John 4:5-10]
L-127 In St. John 5, the next chapter I believe it is, He went by the pool of Bethesda, and there laid a man that'd been crippled up for several years, had an infirmity. Now, he could walk, but an Angel come down and troubled the pool. You brethren know where I'm speaking. And then Jesus came by and said, he said about going to the pool... He said, "I have no one to help me. Someone can do better than me, can beat me to the pool, in other words."
He said, "Take up your bed and go into your house." He took up his bed and went on. [Matthew 9:6]
L-128 Now, Jesus never healed another one of them, and there were multitudes: thousands. Why didn't He do it? There's one for the congregation, for we ministers. A God full of compassion, is that right? Multitudes of lame, blind, halt, withered, all kinds of people (does the Bible say that, brethren?), and He went right to one man that had an infirmity. He wasn't blind. He could walk. He might've had a prostate trouble. He might've had a retarded TB. It wasn't going to kill him. He'd had it twenty-eight years, and it wasn't going to kill him. And He went to that man. Why? Then He just healed that one and walked away. [John 5:1-9, 19]
L-129 What if He'd come to Tempe tonight and did that? They'd criticize Him right there. Is that right, brethren? They criticize Him. But remember, Jesus knew the man and knew that he'd been in that condition all this time. Is that what He said?
Now, when the Jews found this man, he told them who did it. They found Jesus and they questioned Him. You think they'd question Him tonight? Sure. What did He say? "Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing in Himself, but what He sees the Father doing: that doeth the Son likewise." Is that right? Then according to His own Word, He done nothing till God showed Him in a vision what to do. [John 5:19]
L-130 Remember Elijah in our sermon tonight? "I've did all this at Your command." Any prophet of the Lord only goes as the Lord leads him. Now, just pattern it. Now, Christ is the Holy Ghost that's in here now. Now, I believe that I felt led to come to Arizona. Jesus felt led, had need to go by Samaria. I felt led to have the healing service at Tempe tonight: never did have one up here. I don't know why. Well, you happen to be the first person up here. There you are, St. John 4 exactly again. [I Kings 18:6], [John 4:5-10]
L-131 I don't know you, you don't know me. I don't know one thing. You might be a sinner; you might be a hypocrite; you might be in adultery; you might be a godly saint; you might be sick; you might be standing for somebody else; you might have financial troubles. I--I don't know what you have. I know nothing about you. Now, that's right. I don't.
Now, if I'm a stranger, so that some unbeliever might be setting by, raise your hand, if we are, if that--if that's true. See? Now, if the Holy Spirit in contacting her spirit... Now, we're both standing here, man and woman, just like they were, and Jesus talked to her until He found what was wrong with her. Is that right? Now, all that knows that's true, say, "Amen."
L-132 He found what her trouble was, and He told her what her trouble was. And she said, "Sir, You must be a prophet." See, they hadn't had no prophets for about four hundred years. She said, "You must be a prophet. Now, we know that when the Messiah cometh, this will be the sign of the Messiah. He will tell us all things." Is that right?
Well, Jesus said, "I'm He that speaks." [John 4:5-26]
L-133 Now, if that was sign of Messiah then, and He's the same yesterday, today, and forever, only in the form of the Holy Spirit, using my flesh, my spirit as I surrender it to Him, and would tell me where your trouble is, you'd know whether it was right or not, 'cause you're a witness of that. Now, if you... If I was having a healing service and I come up and said, "Glory to God. Sick, sister?" [Hebrews 13:8]
"Yes. I have TB"
"Glory to God." Lay hands on you. "Hallelujah. Receive your healing."
Now, many fine brothers, like Brother Oral Roberts and them, they're real men of God. That's their gift. They say, "Glory to God. I believe it. Do you?"
I believe you'd get well. Sure, I believe that. Yes, sir. I believe... you'd go to your pastor, if you're a Christian, or whatever like that, I believe it would do it.
L-134 But now, what if He comes and tells you something that you have done. Now, you'd know whether that's true or not. And if He can tell you what has been done, surely you could believe if He'd tell you what will be done. Is that right? Now, how many believes that that would be a witness, if He does it, that He is Jesus Christ the Messiah, same yesterday, today, and forever?
Now, remember, not me, no. I'm like this microphone, a perfect mute. How would I know? I've done confessed to you, and to her, and both to one another, we don't--we never seen one another. So it will take a power from somewhere.
L-135 Now, you could believe like some of them did, and say, "Thou art the Son of God, the King of Israel." Or you could say, "Hmm. He's a devil, fortuneteller, some kind of a bad spirit." Then that's between you and God. See? I... Now, that's up to you to judge that. See? It just depends your attitude towards it. But to me, it's Jesus Christ. It's to me because it's promised.
And now, if He made a promise, and commissioned me, and give me them signs... And many years ago I was in here with you people, and He gave me a sign. If you'd put your hand on mine (How many remembers that?), then I could tell you... If I'd hold still a few minutes, I wouldn't have no control, but say "You have a tumor," or whatever it was. It was perfect. Is that right?
L-136 And I told you that He told me if I would be reverent, and believe, and would stay free (and that is, not go bumming for money, and I've never took a offering in my life. See?), and everything, and live true to Him, that it would come to pass that when I'd tell the people the very secret of their heart and other things. They can't deny that. See, see? You remember me prophesying that? Now, it's come to pass.
L-137 Now, now, just be reverent. You say, "What are you waiting on, Brother Branham?" For Him. I don't know that woman. If He don't anoint me, I can't do it. That's just all.
How many ever seen the picture of that Angel of the Lord, that fire, fiery Pillar? They've took it, and got it all over the world. Now, it's in Washington, DC in the religious hall of art: only supernatural Being that was ever scientifically proven.
L-138 I'm just going to talk to you a minute to contact... Yes. Praise the Lord. Here it is. I can't tell you how I know it, but I know He's right here now. See? That's right. It's right here now. Thanks be to the Lord. See? Here it is.
Now. You've got a skin disease that you want me to pray for. If that's right, raise up your hand. Now, do you believe that with all your heart? Now, you might say that I guessed that. See? Now, watch and see if we guessed it. See? Be real reverent. Seems to be a nice person.
Now, right now I could not tell you what I told you first. Now, just a minute. Yes, a skin disease, you have. Had it for some time, even been prayed for for it. And then, you got something wrong with your side. That's right. It was caused by an automobile accident. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD. Now, you believe, don't you? In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I ask for her healing. Go, believing. Do you believe that He's the same yesterday... the evening Lights of the Holy Spirit...?
L-139 How do you do? You and I are strangers to each other, first time of our meeting. If I could heal you, I would. I only represent the Healer (See?) as an ambassador commissioned, praying for His confir... But if God will tell me what you're here for, do you believe me to be His prophet, or His servant? You believe it?
One thing, it's shadowy around you: shows that you're suffering with a nervous condition, mental upset, nervous condition. Gets worse in the evening as the sun starts to set. That's right. Then another thing, you have a growth that you're worried about. You believe God can tell me where that growth is? It's on the right breast. Is that right? Do you believe now? Now, there's something on me saying that, knowing that. Is that right? You believe it to be God? Then Jesus said, "These signs shall follow them that believe; if they lay their hands on the sick, they shall recover." God bless you.
Have faith. Don't doubt. Just believe with all that's in you. [Mark 16:17-18]
L-140 Little fellow there with the striped tie on, just quit worrying. That arthritis is going to leave you, if you just believe with all your heart. You was setting there waiting for that, wasn't you? If you ain't got a prayer card, you don't need one. Just believe.
See, his faith touched something. You know that man didn't touch me. He's twenty feet away from me. Is that right? But what did he touch? The High Priest. I looked here at this woman; there was a man. I looked and there was a man. I said, "It can't... The--there's... That's a woman." I looked, there was a man. I watched. That light which is hanging here, went over and held over by him. I seen him trying to get out of the bed, like that. That's it. See? There he is. Let him be evidence. Is that... You was setting, praying for that. Is that right? Believe with all your heart now, and you'll get well.
L-141 "If thou canst believe, all things are possible." Just have faith. Now, be real reverent. Excuse me. I was watching the Light moves around through the building. I was just watching to see...
Now, I want to talk to you just a moment. Look like a good person to me. We're strangers to one another; the Lord knows your troubles. He knows me; He knows you. We're man and woman standing here meeting our first time, with the Spirit... You are a Christian, and--and I can feel the vibration there, it was of your spirit, you know, just moving. And I know you're not a hitchhiker; you're a Christian. See? So then, that's... What I mean hitchhiker, is just jump from place to place, you know. You're borned again, you're a real Christian. I can feel your welcoming (See?), and the Holy Spirit here welcomes that spirit, because it's a kindred spirit. See? We're brother and sister.
You're not here for yourself. You're standing for somebody else, a friend of yours is suffering with demon oppression. You believe that? Put that handkerchief on them and don't doubt. It'll leave them. God bless you.
Have faith in God. Just believe with all your heart. [Mark 9:23]
L-142 How do you do, lady? We're strangers to one another. Now, somebody somewhere (God, where's it at?), somewhere in the audience somebody... Something happened. "How you do know it, Brother Branham?" Well, I just know it. See? See, it's just like... It's pulling the life right out of you. You see? Something happened. Somebody got healed somewhere. I don't know where it was, but maybe He will show me again.
L-143 We are strangers to one another, lady. I do not know you, but God does know you. You're here for some purpose, maybe for somebody else, maybe financial, domestic. Whatever it is, God can tell me. Will you believe it? You will know if it's the truth. Keeps being a young person come here, a vision breaking for a young person. Now, you believe with all your heart, and God will grant it. If I can tell you, you know if I don't know you, it'll have to come from some supernatural power.
L-144 Remember my sermon tonight, what I talked about? Now, look. Perhaps if I would, like that Angel turned His back... Now, what if I turn my back like this to where you're at. See? All right. Now, you just--just say to the Lord Jesus, "Oh, God," just in your heart, "reveal to Brother Branham what I'm here for, or something about me," and see if He does.
Yes, I can see the woman right now. She's suffering with an intestinal trouble. That's right. It's growths in the intestines. It's true. Mrs. Cathan, you can go home now and be made well, if you'll believe with all your heart. Go...
L-145 You believe? Have faith. Do you realize that the very God that wrote the Bible is moving in this little humble church here tonight?
Now, we are strangers to one another too, mister. I don't know you, never seen you in my life. We're perfect strangers. Now, it's getting me weak, folks. It's a...
That lady setting back there with constipation, setting the second one in from the back, on the side of that row, there. It was you awhile ago that was up here. If you believe with all your heart, it'll leave you.
L-146 What about that baby with that allergy? Do you believe that God will heal it? There you are. Glory. The devil lost that. He did. God bless you, sister, brother. Have faith in God. That's all you need. It'll leave the baby, don't forget.
What did they touch? What did that lady touch for her baby? I don't know them people, never seen them in my life. If we are strangers to one another, raise up your hands there, folks, there where it's at, the--the lady. Raise up your hand. That's... She was standing there praying for that baby, and the Holy Spirit kept moving in there, somewhere, and I seen there where it was. And I seen the little baby with--with that condition. There she is. The baby will get well, sister. Don't worry. Why? it's real light around there now. I know that God answered. See? It'll leave the baby. I know it's going to be all right. See?
L-147 It's just coming everywhere from the audience now. It's so you can't pick it out. It's just everywhere, just...?... Don't you believe more now than you believed awhile ago? So you see it's just... It can happen to every one of you if you just believe it. See, just believe it.
Excuse me, mister, I--I--I didn't... You know, I'm not beside myself, but I just... I get real weak, and I just...
Jesus, one woman touched His garment and He said, "I perceive that virtue has gone out." That's strength. And if He, the Son of God, what about me, a sinner saved by grace? [Luke 8:46]
L-148 Now, here is a man. Let it happen to this man, and then will all of you believe? Anybody know this man? Does anybody know the man around here? Oh, yes, it's... All right. Now, you know, let's see whether it's right or not. The man is total stranger. I never seen him in my life; we're total strangers to each other. But if the Holy Spirit can reveal to me what you're here for, or what you want, or something about you that you know that I know--I don't know nothing, then that would convince you that it would have to be the Holy Spirit. Would it convince all of you, and know that the same Holy Ghost that's here is out there too, in all of us?
L-149 Your trouble is rectal trouble. It's a cyst in the rectum. There's somebody else here praying about that. It's your wife out there. She's having a persistent headaches all the time. That's right. You got a child there too. That's right. You believe God can tell me what's wrong with that child? It's a blood condition. You believe God can tell me who you are? Would you believe me? You're a minister. You're Reverend Mr. Mann. Go home, be made well.
L-150 You believe with all your heart? Just give God praise. Do you believe, lady, with all your heart, setting there? Do you believe? Go eat your supper. Your stomach trouble will leave you and you'll be all right.
Your back trouble's left also, sister, so you can just go across the room and believe with all your heart that God's going to make you well. You believe it? Go, shouting, saying, "Praise the Lord." All right, with all your heart.
L-151 Nervousness is a bad thing, but God can heal it. Do you believe that? Just go rejoicing, saying "Thank you, Lord." God makes it well.
Old tummy bothering you? Go eat. Jesus Christ makes you well. Have faith. Your back's a bothering you, isn't it? Go, believe. Jesus Christ makes you well. Have faith.
Nervousness? Believe God will heal you? Go be healed in Jesus' Name.
See what I mean? Isn't Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever?
L-152 Now. Jesus said, "He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he also." Is that right? Now, did Jesus say this, "These signs shall follow them that believe"? How many believers are here? All right. How many wants to be healed? Raise your hands. Then lay your hands on one another. You're believers. That's right. He keeps His Word. Do you believe it? If you'll believe it, you're going to see something happen that you never seen before, if you'll believe it. [John 14:12], [Mark 16:17]
L-153 Now, bow your heads; lay... Don't pray for yourself; pray for the person you've got your hands on. Pray now, sincerely. Believe sincerely. Lay your hands on somebody and pray. Now, I'm going to pray here.
Heavenly Father, we come in the Name of the Lord Jesus. We come because that Your Word has been confirmed; the commission is confirmed. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is in our presence in the form of the Holy Spirit.
O God, these are Your people. They're suffering. Satan has bound them. They know that You're here. The confirmation of Your Presence is here: the Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever.
Satan, you've lost the battle. Come out of them, Satan, in the Name of Jesus Christ. I adjure thee to leave this audience, and come out of this people that they might be made free in the Name of Jesus Christ.
If you believe it, stand on your feet and give God praise. That's the idea. That's it. Raise your hands and give Him praise. Confirm, confess, and believe your healing is come.

62-0129 - Ramada Inn, Phoenix, AZ (Paragraphs: 17 - 30)
L-18 The same thing happened down there, when this--in Mexico, about the little baby there, the little dead baby that night, the little mother I was telling you about. Its spirit had gone. Same thing our Lord did when He was here on earth, when the spirit of Lazarus was four days somewhere. But with the Holy Spirit, He turned the spirit of Eli--of Lazarus back. [John 11:43]
Many times people come, of all kinds of things, and says--ask these different questions. Here, a few... Brother Fred Sothmann, I believe I see him standing there at the door. He had just...
One thing, you can see what I mean. We do not believe in taking a gift of God, and making a ouija board out of it. You shouldn't do that. Just in cases... And God won't work it like that. It takes Him to do it after all.
Some friends was coming to see him. The trailer was locked up. He had no--couldn't find the keys for two or three days. He was just frantic; the people was coming. He called. He said, "Brother Branham, one time the sons of Jesse was out hunting for some mules, and they couldn't find them. So they went down to Samuel, and asked where it was. And Samuel told them that the--the mules had already returned." He said, "Will you ask God about the keys?" [I Samuel 9:20]
Said, "Go to your closet" (after prayer) "look in a little sweater that you was wearing a few days ago." And there was the keys. See, what is it? It means this one thing, friends: that God is still just as much God as He ever was. See? Now, we--we must cope with that. We must believe that. We must know that that is true.
L-19 But those gifts will only operate... And it cannot operate through an individual. It takes the faith of some other individual to operate that gift.
The woman that touched His garment... Why many of them was touching Him, but that woman's faith touched Him. And during the time of the faith touching Him, it was... She never exactly touched Him; she touched God. And that's what brought the results.
It's always that way. If your faith can touch Him, then that kind of a gift is just a--a discernment that God speaks back through an individual. So that you... Many of you raised your hands the first time you'd ever seen It. Now, Jesus promised that gift to return to the church before the end time. [Matthew 9:21], [Mark 5:27-32]
L-20 I was talking to Brother Demos a few moments ago about a Scripture, that if you people only knew, and I trust that you do... When you see these fine brethren of the denominational churches; Episcopalians, Presbyterians, Methodists, coming in to get this, don't you know your Scripture, what happens then? Don't... I don't mean to scold when I stand up here and say things, but it's for your good.
Now, no more than I said that, the Holy Spirit begins to move right here now. How many ever seen that picture? When I meet you at the judgment bar, you see if this isn't right. That same Light isn't two feet from where I'm standing right now. That's right. What is it? It's the risen Lord that Paul met on the road down to Damascus. It produces His Life. I'd better set down. [Acts 9:1-9]
L-21 How many really believes that with all your heart? I--I know you did. One of those visions makes you weaker than if you'd stand here and preach for three hours.
Jesus... When the Father wants to show a vision... Now, when Lazarus died, the Father had showed Jesus what was going to take place. Now, remember, John 5:19, Jesus said, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, the Son can do nothing in Himself, but what He sees the Father doing: that doeth the Son likewise." How many knows that that's the Scripture? Then Jesus Christ never did one thing until God showed Him first. Is that right? So it's not me says--does the works, it's My Father that dwelleth in me. Now, we know that to be true. It's always the Spirit of God. [John 15:19]
L-22 Now, He seen a vision of Lazarus, and went on till He knowed that Lazarus was dead, and said so, and returned back. He never said one thing about getting weak. But a little woman with a blood issue touched His garment, and He said, "I perceive that virtue's gone out of Me."
Why? Listen, friends. Once was God using His gift with Lazarus; the next was the woman using God's gift by her faith. Do you understand? See, the woman, her... Jesus never said--turned around and said, "Well now, you know I've got power, so I healed you." He said, "Thy faith has saved thee. Thy faith..." Her faith did it. [Matthew 9:21-22], [Mark 5:27-30]
L-23 I don't know how I could make it clearer to you, any more than to say that--that that same God... Not here just with me. If He would just be with me and not with you, why it would never take place. It takes you and I together. You've got to have faith. I've got to have faith. And a gift is just like pulling into a--out of low gear into high gear. See, it's just knowing to shift the gear; that's the gift. It's still the same person, but shifting your soul into the Presence of God and just see what He will say.
Now, I know He's here. You believe it? Have faith. Trust God.
L-24 Yesterday it was hard. I couldn't hardly... It was my first time; I was a little nervous. I didn't know this was fixing to happen. But there's people right here now can be healed. How many sick people out there is actually in your heart will admit you're praying right now? Raise your hands. Sure.
Lady setting right over here. She's praying for her little girl. She's Mrs. Boggs. That hemorrhage, if you will believe that with all your heart, that'll stop. Do you believe it, Mrs. Boggs, that your child will be healed?
L-25 I see a Light hanging back here. It's over a man that's sure to die if he doesn't have faith. The reason of this, there was a woman yesterday that requested prayer for this man. He's got cancer on his face, and he's praying. Mr. Peterson is his name. If you will believe with all your heart, God will make you well. Will you accept it, sir? You will? Raise up to your feet. God bless you. The man... I never seen him in my life. I never heard of him, never knowed nothing about him. If--if we're strangers to one another, mister, ever who you are, raise your hand, if that's right.
You believe? Just pray. I challenge you in Jesus' Name. Just be reverent just a minute. Just pray. Everybody's praying. Just have faith.
L-26 I thought it was Florence, but it isn't. It's an older woman. It's your mother. I never seen her, as I know of, in my life. She's a stranger to me. But between me and you stands your mother. She's going blind, something wrong with her eyes, like cataracts in her eyes. You believe? Now, she's faded away. Now, Sister Shakarian, you know I don't know your parents, your people. I've never seen them.
L-27 There's a little lady setting right here. She's got spiritual problems she's praying over. She's kind of turning gray. God, don't let her miss it. She's praying for someone else too. She's not from here. She's from another city by the sea coast. She's from Los Angeles. Her name is Mrs. Pascoe. Stand up to your feet. You'll never be bothered no more. Your faith has saved you. God bless you.
Don't never doubt again. Don't never doubt again. He's here. THUS SAITH THE LORD.
L-28 I'm going to step out just a moment. I'll be right back. Just kind of gets me... It's just flying everywhere. You see? I'll be back in just in a minute... I'll be right back. [Brother Branham leaves the pulpit for a few moments and returns humming--Ed.]
The Lord said to me when I stepped back there, said, "Pray, pray." I--I know... Don't think I'm beside myself. I'm not. I know where I am. Now, if there's a critic that wants to criticize, now's your time to stand.
L-29 Little sister there from Long Beach, don't worry. It's all over now. Have faith.
Now, I want you just to put your hands on one another. God, Who says these things, knows all what's right. Surely. The Bible... A man can come and speak anything. It can be right or wrong. But when God confirms that it's right, then that's right. The Word of God is right. Everything else is wrong if it's contrary to the Word of God. The Word of God said, "These signs shall follow them that believe; if they lay their hands on the sick they shall recover."
Our heavenly Father, I'm only doing this at Your command, Lord. It seems like it's all out of order from the regular program. But when You moved there in the corner in the building, You said, "Go back, pray." I'm just doing what You told me to do, Lord. [Mark 16:17-18]
L-30 I pray that the Holy Spirit, at this moment, will shake this audience in such a way that they'll realize that the living, risen Lord Jesus is in the midst of us tonight, moving over us, through us, in us.
Look, Lord, they have their hands on each other. And they have need of the Holy Ghost. They have need of healing, many troubles... Let the God Who just spoke in those visions, let the God that raised up His Son, Christ Jesus, and has presented Him to us in these last days, let Him come in the power of the resurrection and heal every person that's in Divine Presence. Make well every one, and fill with the Holy Ghost. Lord, I offer this prayer in obedience to Your wishes, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
