But can't wait just a few days on God, or a few hours, a few minutes.

SC-84 Let's be... Let's be real soldiers. Every one of us put on a full armor of God now, and stand right out here and wait like real soldiers.

I don't know that He will do this, but look here. I want to ask you something. As plain as I've tried to make it, am I... I'm not an educated person. My speech is bad, and I have a bad voice, and--and there's nothing about me that's any good. But I... See? But if God will just... What I have told you, you believe it to be the truth? See, is that the way you would know Jesus? All right.



SC-85 Let's call some of these prayer cards up. Let's just start from number 1. Who has... If you can get up now, when I call your number... Number 1. Who has prayer card... What letter was that? A? H? A. A-number-1, hold up your hand, ever who has the prayer card. This lady here? How you going, come down... Number 2. Who has prayer card number 2? Prayer card A-number-2. Back there? All right. Come right here, lady, right around this way.

Number 3? All right, lady, you come right this way. Number 4? Number 4, would you hold up your hand, ever who has it. Is that lady? All right. 4, raise your hand, then we... Brother Borders and I are watching. Number 4? Number 5? Over here? 6? All right, right just take your place right... Number 7? Number 7? All right. Number 8? I do this to keep them from racing over one another. 8, 9? Who has 9? Number 9?



SC-86 If you can't get up now, just let somebody... Tell somebody next to you. Raise your hand. We'll pack you up here. We'll see that you get up here. Say, and say... Somebody say nine in Spanish. How do you say it?...?... Nueve, 9. Number 9. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. Number 9? Sorry. I'm sorry, sister. Number 9.

Number 10, 11. Come right down here, sister. Prayer card 11. Is the lady standing up there 11? 12, 13, 13, 14, 14? I didn't see it, I don't believe. 14? 15? Prayer card 15, would you raise your hand. Prayer card 15? How many we got? Let's start right there.



SC-87 Now, every one of those people could raise up and walk. Now, for instance, I don't see any cripples setting here, 'less it's the lady setting there in the chair. If I said the lady, which, I know her... If I'd say that lady's crippled, why, you'd say, "Sure." What about this lady setting here? or this one here? Now, how many of you do not have a prayer card in the meeting, and yet you believe Jesus Christ will make you well? Let's see you raise your hands. All of you, everybody's that's got prayer cards, just everywhere.

Now, look. While they're getting those people together, I'd like to have your attention. One day there was a lady passed through a--a group of people. And say, she didn't have a prayer card, but she believed if she could touch the border of His garment, she'd be made well. How many knows the story? We all do. Sure, that's fine. If she could touch the border of His garment... Now, and she made her way through, and she touched His garment.



SC-88 And now, I don't believe He could've felt it physically, because the Palestinian garment holds... It's got an underneath garment, and then it's a robe that hangs out like that. And she touched the border of it.

And Jesus turned around and said, "Who touched Me?"

And Peter rebuked Him. It sounded not like a--a--not an intelligent question. Said, "Why, Master. Everybody is touching You." ("Hello, Rabbi. Glad to see you." "Hello, there, prophet. We're glad to see You." Oh, like that.)

He said, "Who touched Me?"

Well, said, "You speak strange." He rebuked Jesus.

Jesus said, "But I perceive that I've gotten weak. Virtue (strength) has gone from Me. I got weak." And He looked all around through the audience, and He found the little woman. How many knows what was wrong with her? She had an issue of blood, and had had it for many years. And He said, "Thy faith has saved thee."

Now, the Greek word there, "sozo," which means the same as for the physical as... "Thy faith has saved thee."

SC-89 Now, the Bible said that Jesus Christ is the High Priest right now (You believe it?), High Priest that can be touched by the feeling of our infirmities. Is that right?

Well, if He's the same High Priest, how would He act? The same as He did then. That'd make Him the same High Priest, yesterday, today, and forever. Just, there's no way of getting away from it. The... If the Bible declares anything, it's the truth. Is that right?

Now, what--what happens here? Now, a gift... Now, the Bible said (for these minister brothers), the Bible said that God has set in the church five different gifts. Is that right? God has. Now, there's nine gifts in the--in the local church just on one or the other, but five ministerial gifts: apostles, prophets, teachers, pastors, evangelists. Is that right? Five spiritual gifts. Now, those gifts are for the perfecting of the church, to keep the church in order--pastors, and teachers, and evangelists, and prophets, and so forth. Now, it's gifts.

Now, no matter how much these men here are gifted to preach, you've got to also believe what they preach, or it isn't going to do one good. They could just preach on and on, and on, you'd never get saved. You'd die right in the pew, and be lost (That's right.), setting right there. That's right. You've got to believe what they're saying. Well, no matter what God would do here in a way of a prophetic gift, you have to believe it too.



SC-90 When He was in Christ, and He's in His church now... Now, when He was in Christ, He was just in one place. That's the reason that Jesus said, "The work... He..." Saint John 14:12, "He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also." Is that right? The works... "He that believeth," because why? The Word's in Him. See? "He that believeth on Me, the works that I... More than this..." I know the King James says "greater," but it couldn't be no greater. The right translation of it in the original is "more," because He raised the dead, stopped nature, done everything perfect.

So it's just more, because the--His Spirit that was in Him, on the day of Pentecost, that Pillar of Fire which was made flesh, dwelt among us, It'd went back again and divided Itself on the day of Pentecost amongst the disciples. Tongues of fire set upon each of them, God separating Himself out amongst His people, so together we could be a unit of God. We ought to stand like...



SC-91 Now... Now, if... I believe every one in that prayer line is a stranger to me. I don't... There's no one here that I know, outside of Brother Borders. And--and I don't mean... I may have met you brothers in meetings, but just to know who you are... And I believe this is--this is that brother from Ohio here, setting right. No, I can't think of his name now: Fritzinger, from Ohio. Brother and Sister Fritzinger setting there, from Ohio. This is Brother and Sister Dauch setting here from Ohio. Now, I know Brother Sothmann, and Brother Wood is in here somewhere, the book salesmen and them. I don't see them. Don't know where they're at.

SC-92 But now, if the Holy Spirit will come and confirm what I have said tonight to be the truth, then there'd be two things. It would show you that Jesus Christ is still alive (Is that right?), the same yesterday, today, and forever. 'Cause as a man, I can't do those works. It takes Him to do it. So you know it has to be Him.

And another thing it would indicate, that the time is at hand (That's right.), the time. The last sign that Israel received, the last sign that--that they received (Lot, Abraham) before the destruction... Everything indicates right now we're in the shadows of His coming.

So sinner friend, if you're here tonight, and God proves that He's here among us, won't you come and accept Him as your Saviour? You do that.

SC-93 Now, for the glory of God, and in the Name of Jesus Christ, I take every spirit in here under the control of the Holy Ghost. Now, don't move around. Set quiet, be reverent, pray. And you out there now, you just pray, and say now, "I'm going... Lord, that minister doesn't know me. But let me touch Your garment. Let me touch You. Then You speak through him. I'll know it's You (See?), 'cause that's You acting through Your church as he said You was." All right. Let's have the...

SC-94 This is quite a walk across here. Now... (Thank you.) Here's a lady that's totally strange to me. Now, I want you to keep this Scripture tonight in your mind. When you go home, read Saint John 4. Here it is. A man and a woman meet for the first time. See, right here, just exactly like in the Bible time, our Lord Jesus met a woman that He knew not; she knew not Him.

Now, this woman, I--I don't know her. I've never seen her. So she's just some lady standing here. Now, she may be... Maybe she's a--a rank unbeliever. She might be a Christian. She might be a--a deceiver. She might be a... She might be sick; she might be standing for somebody else. It may be domestic trouble; it may be financial trouble. I don't know. But He does know.

Now, if I come, and said like this, "Glory to God..." That's... I'm not... Remember, that's the Holy Spirit, brothers, that says that. If I say, "Glory to God, sister." The Lord has sent me to pray for the sick. You believe me?"

She'd say, "Yes, I believe you."

"Are you sick?"

"Yes."


"Something's wrong with you?"

"Yeah."


"What is it?"

She'd say, "Well, I'm--I'm dying with cancer," or "I've got TB," or--or something like that.

I'd say--lay my hands upon her and say, "Jesus said these signs shall follow them that believe. He said, 'Lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.' Hallelujah. Go believe it." That could be so. She'd go and get healed too, if she believed it.

SC-95 But now, let's change that now. We've come up a little farther. Now, what if He stands here and tells her something that... Let Him tell her what's wrong. Let Him tell her something she's done, or something she ought not have done, or whether what she is. Then if what's in the past is true, she'll know whether that's right or not. And then, if He can tell her what has been, and then will tell her what will be, that's got it then, hasn't it? That's--that's it. See? That takes it all out. See? That's it. Would you believe? Everybody believe? How about up in the balcony, would you believe, friends, back way there at the end?

SC-96 Now, remember. We're not here as a stage show. This is not a clowning affair. It's here trying to represent the God of the Bible. And Christianity is attractive, if it is preached in its simplicity and truth (See?), not making some great, swelling, high, educated words. Like Paul said, "I didn't come to you like that, but in the power and the resurrection of Christ, that your faith may be based in that: that Jesus Christ is alive." And then if Jesus Christ is alive, and can speak to our sister here, or this woman, and tell what about that, then He's just the same out there to you as He is here on the platform, or anywhere else. See? You believe that now?

SC-97 Now, just to speak to her a moment, just to contact her spirit. Now, here's a man and a woman again, meet for the first time in life, like... Now, of course, there's many people out there praying, and if I... After It first gets the anointing here, then It leaves and goes out over the building. 'Course after it kind of gets a few nights, and everybody gets, you know, used to It, things like that...

Now, we being strangers and not knowing each other, and if... But Christ is here. He is the Resurrection. He--He said, "I am the Resurrection and Life." Then He lives forevermore, ever able to make intercession.

And feeling her Christian Spirit coming against me now, to me, it makes it known that there is a Christian. See? Her spirit's welcome. She is a Christian. And so then (See?), that there, now here's a brother and a sister of the same God. See? And you're in need. I see you're--you're needy, and you have need of something.

And now, the heavenly Father has already put the money in the bank for you when He gave His Son. But now, the thing of it is, to make you have faith is to know that He's here, standing here, 'cause you know it have to come through some power. That's right.

Now, if the people can still hear me, right over the woman, if you can notice, there's a green-amber Light. The woman is very conscious of something's going on, because it's a sweet, real sweet, holy feeling. If that's right, raise up your hand. She's becoming anointed now by the Spirit of God. And the lady is suffering with a nervousness, a real extreme nervousness, and...

SC-98 That always comes. Why is that? I didn't guess that. See? You're thinking I guessed that. I didn't. See? That was no guess. Couldn't be a guess. But it's the truth, whatever it was. I don't know what it was. The tape's got it. But whatever It said was true.

Wait just a moment. She seems to be a nice person, just talk... Yes, here it is, nervousness, real nervous, and that nervousness is so bad till it makes you sore. You get sore. And then you've got something wrong, a rupture in the diaphragm here. That's right. Isn't that right? And no wonder you should believe, being a minister, a woman preacher. You're not from this country. You're from Missouri. That's a THUS SAITH THE LORD. You believe now? Go, and it'll all be gone. Go and believe with all your heart. God bless you, my sister. Thank you.

Now, do you believe? How many believe? Why, sure. You can't keep from believing, can you? Just have faith. That's all you have to do. Just believe.

SC-99 Now, we're strangers to one another. You believe the Holy Spirit is here? Now, what I have to do, sister, I have to feel for you, you know. It has to be something that I sympathize with you. There's too much of this cold-eyed Christianity today, dried and cut. You've got to feel for the people. Now, just a moment.

There's a lady. She said she'd prayed, and God told her that she'd get to come, or get to see me here. Just keep believing. That's lovely. If you can keep that up, that real wave of faith coming from the audience then, that's good. Just keep thinking now, just keep believing. Don't doubt. Keep it in your heart now.

This lady here is praying, and wants to be prayed for, from a growth on your head (That's right.), under your hat where it's got it. That's right, isn't it. You believe? All right. Then go and the growth will leave you...?... Just have faith. Believe with all your heart. Have faith now. Don't doubt. Be real quiet and be real reverent.

SC-100 How do you do? We're strangers to each other also, I believe. The Lord Jesus knows us both. He knows what you're here for. He knows all about you. I don't, but He does. But if the Lord Jesus will reveal to me your troubles, will you believe it has to come from Him? Is that right? All right. You just believe with all your heart.

Now, it's really not yourself. You're interested in somebody else. That's right. It's a man, and that man is your son-in-law. And your son-in-law has ulcers, and you want me to pray for him. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD. Take that handkerchief, put it on him. Then go believing. You believe with all of your heart? Just don't doubt. Have faith. Now, be real reverent now. Have faith. Don't doubt at all, believe. See?



SC-101 How do you do? We're strangers to one another, I suppose? But the Lord Jesus knows us both. Now weaving it's just from them visions. You see? It's... If one little woman made virtue go from our Lord and Saviour, what would it do to me, a sinner saved by His grace? You believe if the Lord Jesus will reveal to me something about you? You believe it. Let's just be real reverent now. Just don't doubt.

You have several things wrong with you. One--one thing is a fallen bladder. That's right, isn't it? Another thing, you have a--a growth, and it's in the abdomen. That's right, isn't it? All right. You believe now that you're going to be all right? Then pass on by and say, "Thank You, Lord Jesus." Don't doubt in your heart; you can have what you've asked for. Just believe now as you come.

How do you do, sister? You believe with all your heart? Well now, we are born perhaps miles apart, and years apart, and here we meet for our first time.

SC-102 Somehow I just can't get that in the audience. There's somebody out there praying. Now, it's a man, but I can't tell where it's at. It keeps coming. It's this man setting right here looking at me right straight at my finger. He's suffering with arthritis, setting out there... Yes, sir, you. You have arthritis. You believe with all your heart. Raise your hand up. All right, believe now with all your heart, that arthritis will leave you.

I want to ask you something. What did he touch? Tell me Who he touched? He's forty feet from me or more. He touched that High Priest. Ask him if he wasn't setting there praying. Is that right, sir? Just believe with all your heart. That's all you have to do now. Have faith.



SC-103 We are strangers I said. I couldn't help it. That man kept coming before me here, and I seen he was crippled though (See?), and that's up with arthritis. He will be all right if he just keeps believing. Now, if the Holy Spirit...

You know it'll have to be some power to--to transmit this. And now, the Bible said, "The Word of God is a Discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." And that's the reason Jesus could perceive what they were doing, and so forth, because He was the Word.

And then He said, "If ye abide in Me, and My Word in you..." You get the idea now? That's right. Exactly. If you'll believe that with all your heart, that hernia will leave you. You believe it?

I want to tell you something else. You're a nice person, and you've got a deep request on your heart that you want to ask me to pray about, and you was afraid I was going to pass you by. I'm not reading your mind, but you wanted to tell me something, wasn't you? Do you want me to tell you, before you tell me? It's for your husband. Yes, sir. And he's bothered with a swelling condition. Is that right? You believe with all your heart. And go tell him, and lay your hands upon him, and so forth, and it'll leave him in the Name of Jesus. Amen.



SC-104 You believe? Amen. Have faith. Want to eat your supper in peace? Old nervous stomach leave you? Go right on off the platform, eat your supper, say, "Thank You, Lord Jesus."

How do you do? You believe? You believe He can heal heart trouble? You believe He can heal your heart trouble? All right. Then go right on and say, "Thank You, Lord Jesus, for--for healing my heart trouble," and go and make it right.

Now, when I said that about that lady, a real funny feeling came over you, 'cause you had heart trouble too. You remember I said you had it. Just keep going. See? Just have faith.

Strange thing: believe for that baby and it'll leave it also. All right. Do you believe it? All right. She's about... I want to lay my hands on the child. Satan, turn the child loose. In the Name of Jesus Christ, let him be healed. Don't worry about him. Go, believing; it'll leave...?...



SC-105 This lady's shadowed with cancer, but if you'll believe with all your heart, God will heal you. You believe it? All right, sir. Go right by, saying, "Thank You, dear God." I lay hands upon the sick, and they shall recover, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

I'm just going to check one once. What if I didn't say nothing to you, and just laid hands on you. You believe it would leave you? All right, come by. In the Name of Jesus Christ, may she be healed. Amen. All right. That's all right. Have faith...?...

Would you believe the same thing? Just lay hands on you, and you believe it? All right. God bless you. In the Name of Jesus Christ, may you be healed. These signs shall follow them that believe.

What if I said the same thing to you? Would it help you? Now, you got a lady's trouble, but your main thing is that heart trouble that you're worried about like that, 'cause it's a nervous heart.



SC-106 Wait just a minute, just a minute. Something happened. Everybody rev--real reverent now. It's in the audience. Here it is. That lady setting right by there, praying for her husband that has heart trouble. If you believe with all your heart, your husband will get well. Don't doubt it. Believe with all your heart.

Yours is gone. Just have faith now and don't doubt.

How do you do? You believe God can you tell me what's wrong with you? Whether I do or not... Whether He does or not, rather, you'd believe anyway, wouldn't you? You would. If I just laid hands on you, you'd believe that diabetes... Oh, it is diabetes. I said it. I was watching that blood check, what it was, sugar check there. See? Do you believe with all your heart?

This man setting right back straight... Yeah, right behind Brother Sothmann there, has trouble with his legs. If you'll believe with all your heart, sir... You got more faith than you thought you had. Raise up your hands. All right. It's over if you'll believe it. Amen. Let's say, "Praise the Lord."



SC-107 Wasn't that strange, her coming right back there the same time, same... Why did I tell her the same time as you? I just wanted you to know that you had the faith too. Amen.

You love Him? Have faith now. Don't doubt.

Lady setting right over there has got trouble with her legs too. You believe with all your heart? You can have your healing.

And that man setting right back there has got heart trouble. Yes, sir. Believe with all your heart? You... Yes? Got a prayer card? Do you have a prayer card? You don't have to use it now. Your faith did it. You believe?



SC-108 How do you do, sir? We're strangers to each other, but do you believe that God can reveal to me your troubles? Would you... Would that would... I couldn't heal you. 'Cause you know that. I--I'm your brother. I couldn't heal you, but He has already did it. He just wants you to know that He's present. You believe that? All right, sir. The Lord be with you.

You got kidney trouble, bladder trouble, just had an operation. That's right. Isn't that right? You won't have to have it no more. Go, believing, get well, in the Name of the Lord Jesus. God bless you. [The man speaks to Brother Branham--Ed.] Amen. He wants to praise the Lord. He said I've called him once somewhere, and he was healed and still has the healing today, holding good. How many believes?



SC-109 Sirs, we would see Jesus. You believe it? Is He the same yesterday, today, and forever? Is His Word still the same? Now, how many believers are in here? Raise up your hand. Now, did not Jesus give His church this last commission: "Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel. These signs shall follow them that believe. (The believers, is that right?) If they lay their hands on the sick (what will happen?), they shall recover."

Now, I want you to lay hands on one another, up in the balcony, down in here. Each one of you believers, just put your hand over on one another. That's right. Just somebody setting next to you there, front of you, back of you, or somewhere, just lay your hands on one another; you're a believer. So that I want you to see now that it just isn't only up here, He's out there; He's everywhere. Do you believe? (Handkerchiefs for the...)

Up in the balcony, are you ready, putting your hand on one another? Now, bow your heads everywhere. Just lay your hands on one another and bow your heads. Now, our Jesus that proves to you that He's here right now... He is here, His Spirit. You said, "We would see Jesus." Here He is, operating right through His church, His people.
