14. Billy Paul being baptized by Brother Branham. BAPTISMAL SERVICE. JEFF. IN 50-0409
E-8 One of the greatest moments of my life. Looking across somebody's shoulder, my mother. I led her out here in the Ohio River and baptized her in the Name of the Lord Jesus. Now, my own boy. O God, if possible, let Hope look down over the banister this morning, look across the veil, hangs between earth and glory. I pray, God, will make a preacher out of my boy. I pray that God will anoint him and give him a double portion of the Spirit. May God bless his life.
Thank you all for your prayer. Prayer changes things. I'll pray for your children too. Billy, boy, some of these days, honey, we, if Jesus tarries, we got to go down in one of these, they'll throw dirt on us. But, sonny, God will bring us up. "I know my Redeemer liveth, the last days He'll stand on this earth."
I pray that God will bless him, keep the enemy from him. Give him a free access, way down this long road, son. There's many souls dying down there, but throw out the lifeline to them, bring them. I trust, Billy, that you'll stand and baptize literally thousands times thousands for a testimony for the remission of their sins. God, bless my boy, I pray...?...
O Master, Oh, how I...?... My boy, Lord, that I've raised for thee. Here's my boy, Lord; he's all I got. I bring him to You this morning. I'm so thankful, Lord, that he believes this...?... So thankful that he's repented, God. O Lord Jesus, O Christ, anoint him with the Holy Ghost. Grant it, Lord, that the power of the Spirit of the resurrected Christ; hold my boy. Grant it, Lord. May he be filled with God's Spirit to preach the Word, unadulterated Gospel of Christ, to all the ends of the world. Grant it, Lord. Bless him and use him.
Here he stands by the grave before him, Lord. I think of that morning out yonder, we're going there like mother laying there and sister. O Christ, this will be recorded in Heaven. Have mercy, God, grant my boy faith during his life and on his journey home, bless him in that life, bless him Lord. May he have a great ministry, saving souls. Here he is, Lord. As Thou hast commissioned Thy servant to go into all the world and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them into the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost; therefore, Lord, upon this commission, why, my the heart bleeds to You.
My son, upon the confession of your sins and your faith in God's Son, Jesus Christ, I baptize thee, my beloved son, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen. [Blank spot--Ed.]
