I thought you was a Protestant. and this old silly music of rock-and-rolls. His Spirit is here.S. ” Oh. everything is immoral. in Christ’s name. 231 230 JOHN14:12 PSA34:7 . God help you Canadians. “Our Sister Lucy. heavenly Father.” I said. 235 Lord. It’s an unseen world. . it’s stripped our women. changed your mind. God knew what Abraham would do. 47 I said. Someone with a skeptic idea . [“Yes. 232 And here I am standing here just yielding myself. I’ll move to Florida if it is. and the angels of God encamped about them trying to energize them with faith.”] Now do you believe? 228 Now do you feel it? As in my heart.” Then is God’s sworn covenant true? Is His sworn covenant true? Then what we got to be worried about? Jesus is here. is that the truth? [“That’s the truth. 233 Now. right now. they’re married four or five times. He called him not because he was a good man. it shows what’s in the heart. “I’ll know that Abraham will raise his children to fear the Lord. you look this way and that way. He knowed Abraham. perhaps. and the Holy Spirit’s moving now. and Joseph is perfection. God. “That’s Catholic. Where did Hollywood get it? From hell. . I don’t know. But remember.’” That’s right. lady. I think of how the nations has become so polluted. All we’ve got down there is people with their heads sticking in the televisions. but because God foreknew Abraham. Where does America get it? From Hollywood. it’s over. “Hey. Isaac is justification. ever what your trouble is. You’re aware that there’s Something here that knows you. . . I heard the other day that some mayor down in Florida was going to pass a law. and make her well. in the beginning when God called Abraham. borned-again child of God loves the Word and stays with the Word and with the Bible. and give her the desire of her heart. 43 A real. And I ask that You will now with this anointing on our sister. lady. it’s setting on tapes. The only way I know tomorrow. That’s true. He said. We become so conscious of looking at one another like this. you’re always pulling at your neck. . ninety percent of that. I seen you passing by. sir. changed your desire. God knows you. Now. how I love You for saving me from such corruption. them dead people that Catholics pray to. Brother Branham. I know it said something.” 46 I said. But Christians always overcome. he’s trying to interfere. Abraham is election. What happened just now? I went into another world. He told me everything I ever done. Yes. Another thing. that’s true. In this world. Yes. Does that fulfill what I was talking about a few minutes ago? That Christ said. see? Who is that? God.” Jesus said. Here’s another thing: you’ve tried hard to believe. But there’s this unseen world in which there’s evil. that women had to dress orderly from the neck to the knees to come on the street. . with my hand to You and the other on my sister. . and heal her. “I am. . I look at the cross and think. ‘Oh. And that’s right. 44 Why. It’s of the devil. When I see that evil. 42 And men and women will stay home from a prayer meeting to go and listen to that woman. You have pains in your neck all the time. . I believe with all my heart. And here’s Christ. Some fellow was riding with me the other day. It’s things. that you know. that she’ll call the things which has been as though they were not. “Why.” He said. “I see so much evil on the street. that’s a sign of Catholicism--not the cross. shall you also. Thou hast done everything now that can be done.”] Now there’s Something here that knows you. God bless you. And what is it? I’ve got the crime records on it myself right from the files of the FBI which I have in my own possession. in this building here are evil spirits and war. It’s made immoral everywhere. You know that he always does that. will you tonight accept Jesus as your healer of your trouble? Would you come up and just pray for you? 234 Our kind. Jacob is grace. it said to you that’s been many years ago. my sister. that all married. If you’ll believe now with all your heart that it’s not your brother. And you stick your head to look at that. Little saints. I’m speaking of ours in the U. I pray that You’ll bless her. and caught on the street in filth and orneriness. God bless you. Lucy. dead people like Saint Cecilia and all them. . Don’t never let that American pollution get in here. Satan always sits with the sons of God. That’s exactly where it’s at. And Christians anointed. when they do that. You’ve come time after time places to be prayed for.6 FAITH 227 31 thinking. Right. And this is what you call heavenly places in Christ Jesus. The woman said. And that’s how I know. I had a little crucifix hanging up in front of my car. 45 I’m so tired. Abraham was called by election. changed your appetite. and may her testimony cause an oldfashioned revival to start in her church and neighborhood. I don’t know what it said to you.” or “Our. Now. “When did the Catholics have the option on the cross?” That’s the emblem of Christian faith. Christ raised from the dead. and go on and live. wherever she’s from. The whole world’s become a conglomeration of immorality. But I know what it said is the truth. 48 Now. Let Him always be before our face. We’re in a. Is that right? 229 And who was way down in your life years ago that knows everything you’ve done. and be well. He said. This is not your first time you’ve been prayed for.” God knowed him. now. and radio. some kind of silly thing. “These things that I do.
I don’t know. you would believe it. but we want to know the truth.” He said. He has justified. . He might not. You can’t even come to Him unless He chooses you first. so He made the covenant unconditionally. Oh. all things. that would make the Methodists get happy. We’re just to stay on it. You got your mouth open. that we’ve never seen one another and know nothing about each other. And I’ve made that challenge before five hundred thousand in heathens. that’s all I would know. 56 55 52 49 JOHN6:40. and you go away disbelieving. And when he was called . And I see you a lot younger than what you look tonight. may the Lord grant it. not because he was a good man. He said. the trouble of it is with the full Gospel people tonight. He’d have to be the same Jesus today. brother. Those who He called. And no man can come to Me. 50 And Abraham was called by the grace and by election. He hath already glorified. he was given the covenant of God. you can’t do it. “You never chose Me. Amen. you can’t stop doing this. Amen. today. But Who are You?” He said. No matter how ridiculous it seems. That’s been many years ago. But I hope that He does. I can’t say that. God’s the One’s that’s driving the ship. She’s extremely nervous. Christ become you and I. that we might take His righteousness. She’s got a inward trouble that bothers her too. and the Bible laying between us here. not. if the audience can still hear my voice. I don’t mean to pinch. “Sir. Man just can’t keep his promise to God.” . that you and I might become Him. when he received his call. He called. it’s up to Him. when He comes. That’s right. He predestinated. ? “Those who He foreknew. “I have none. simply to Thy cross I cling. you’re scared. It’s already settled. . And God knowing that. 221 But now. I believe that He’ll keep His Word.” So quit being scared. you’re looking in a glass. But I just said that. . Now. this is going to hurt legalist believers just a little bit now. audience? And if He will do it. . but it was given unconditionally to him. God made a promise. No matter how much you try to impersonate. That’s true. God keeps His promise.” That’s right. 222 Now. and this woman and I both here standing before God. The audience is under oath that they’ll believe. I pray in Christ’s name. and God has by His oath has kept His promise. Oh. “I have already (past tense. because you’re the first patient here. He took our sins. not you and I. He was determined to save man. . And that’s right. my. nothing you can do about it.25 That’s the reason we. But it would raise your faith if He would come down and confirm and say that He’d do just like He did do. It’d just have to be your faith in Him. “We can’t make ourself something that we hain’t. just subconsciously said it. . “Abraham. He don’t have to tell me. And we know that when the Messiah cometh (which is Christ). There’s nothing you can do. Now. He will tell us these things.) I’ve already made the covenant with Abraham. . may the good Holy Spirit of God come as we yield ourself to Him in Christ’s name. Now. Your roof of your mouth swells up. Now. 51 There’s nothing that a man can do to save himself. you got five. 54 Then God tried man one time and made a covenant with man upon a condition: If you’ll not touch this tree. And if Christ will perform that tonight. But if He will tell me something in your life back. 225 But now. and I’m going to bring you home with your father at a ripe old age. I will give him everlasting life and raise him up at the last day. as I’ve taught in the covenant. if that was Jesus yesterday. you promise. just as our Lord. It’s a swelling in the roof of your mouth.” She said. His adversary’s too great. and if He’s the same yesterday. 226 Now. That settles it.30 FAITH 7 She said. I couldn’t heal you. So. see. As Congressman Upshaw used to say. and prove that He is living and here. And the Holy Spirit is here fulfilling the Word of the Lord Jesus Christ. You can’t stop eating meat. and forever.” Amen. I’ve already done it. but I chose you. God keeps it. if you’re sick. if you will do certain things. How can anything happen to you? How can. just before His second coming and the ending of the world. I’d hate to stand in your place. And man broke his covenant. you’d know that that second piece of paper. and those who He has justified. was God’s works to a man. And you’re something another. And here we are standing here. then you’ll live forever. Think of it. except the Father draws him first.” “That’s right. I see the lady walking up-and-down a floor in a house. But you’re the first person I’m to talk to.44 ROM8:30 GEN15:18 And He met Abraham and He gave him the covenant. then tell you what’s going to happen. We’re under promise and oath that we’ll believe. nothing you could do. . Now. 53 It’s not what we are. here’s at least a thousand more people. it’s nothing in my arms I bring. you can’t stop. And I don’t want to call you a patient. You know that. Nothing I could do. but what Christ is for us. I perceive that You’re a prophet. .” 220 Now. Is that right? Do you believe that. That’s right. 223 Now. and it still happens today. I’m going to save you. I’ll do certain things. wouldn’t you? You promise that you’ll believe? You do. 224 See where I stand? Looky here. just to talk with you a minute. 219 JOHN4:19. “I’m He. And all that comes. . why? Because I believe. You are already saved by grace. Those who He has predestinated (or foreknew). It’s the sovereign grace of God that calls you. Christ saves you and that alone. It’s the grace of God.
That settles it. ‘cause God said so. If she is. 217 Now.” and so forth. And the Holy Spirit turned around and said. “Abraham. “You child of the devil. take on Abraham’s seed and are heirs according to the promise. Abraham was seventy-five years old when the Lord called him. They’re kind of flipsy. here it is. 63 So Abraham. being dead in Christ. You’re just peculiar. saying they’re going to have a baby. 216 Let’s. 215 How many remembers what that guy did. and He sent the disciples away. and if you’re sick. “Abraham. When we’re baptized? No. “But if you knew who you were talking to. we’re going to have a baby all right. “Doctor. . I can’t tell you. After while.” Why. you’re not His. He will. Well. You know. Hallelujah. what if Christ would appear here. . a Bible illustration. “It’s not customary for you Jews to ask me a Samaritan such as that. Is that right? And He made it to Abraham. Means “Praise our God. And I’m going to give you a baby. how many knows that’s the truth? Well then. And they got married when she was just a girl. 214 That woman might be a critic standing there. but He knew their heart as the Father would reveal to Him. and every tongue confess when He comes. “The well is deep. isn’t it? But that’s the Word. How are we come the seed of Abraham? When we joined the church? No. He’s obligated. sir. Well. He didn’t claim to heal the people.” He’s been paralyzed for years now. “Poor old fellow! You know what? there’s something wrong with him.” Wait a minute. you just watch what happens to her in a few moments. Could you imagine Sister Sarah going downtown and getting the pins and the Birdseye.” That’s true. take off all your doubts now. make me bark like a dog.” To a man seventy-five and a woman sixty-five. He said. his wife. and lay them away. and going to the doctor. We’re going to have a baby. I don’t know. hmmm. I’m going to pray. The weather’s gotten them down or something. Say. And He said. come and tried to hypnotize me? Sitting there. God said so. other needs you have. and He would raise up people to do the same things that He did. comes to us by the baptism of the Holy Spirit. she has to submit herself. could you imagine a man seventy-five years old taking his little wife by the hand. hmmm. . That’s right. I don’t know. But there’s only one thing He could do: refer you back to the Word. And He said. And a woman come out to talk to Him. “Brother Branham. Sure. I imagine that lots of his friends around him said. He’d never seen her. “Go. . One day our Lord Jesus went up to Samaria.” Said. and You have nothing to draw with. if I only had God to say that to me. “Hmmm. . The Lord said you was. and I’m going to bless you. Yes. And the conversation went on. 60 Now.” 58 And the same faith that Abraham had. friends. you’d ask Me for a drink. How do you become the seed of Abraham? “We. I believe their age has got the best of them. sir. Why. .” to the woman. toddling down the street. She’d never seen Him. ‘cause every eye shall see Him and every knee shall bow. and getting everything ready to have the baby--sixty-five-year-old woman? And Abraham saying. That’s right. I’m going to believe tonight with all of my heart. the chosen. sir. and we know that they’ve lived together since she was about eighteen and him about twenty-eight. They’d say he’s just a little bit off. if Jesus of Nazareth . God said. she said.” That’s a good word.8 57 FAITH GEN15:18 GAL3:29 29 You say. That’s what you got to stay with. for the newcomers in here.” 64 Well. . I’m going to make you a father of nations. the second. trying to hypnotize me. to manifest to the people that He’s living and not dead.” And just ask God to do it. “Bring Me a drink. Now. she said. That makes the difference. They packed him from the meeting. Is that right? 213 Now. 212 Now. I couldn’t tell you. Just submit yourself to God. Sure. we want to make ready now. It’s who made the promise. That’s kind of rough. to the world is considered a little bit off. ‘cause I don’t know you. he did in these army camps. She might be an infidel. if He was standing here tonight. And if you’re not. His Spirit would be in the church. hmmm. They hired him to come in. lady. Every person that takes God at His Word. “Well. and his seed after him. . We are the seed. And when He was here on earth. and yet here they are saying they’re going to have a baby.” He said.” 218 JOHN4:7 . What is it? Humble yourself and submit yourself.5 now for instance. but this is already laid. . and never pick them up again. I’m going to give a little illustration. Abraham had God’s promise. and Sarah. And His Word give a promise that He would be with us and would do the same things that He did. No other foundation. Just watch what happens. They lived together all this time. Now. . say. which He can’t in a corporal body. “They’ll pack you out of here.” 61 The doctor’d say. This must be a real hot summer. and how could You do it. (her sixty-five). hmmm. you just look at me just a moment while we talk. It’s the promise and 59 GEN17:4.” 65 But it didn’t make any difference what anybody said. was sixty-five. That’s the reason you can believe in divine healing and call those things which are not as though they were. Look at that old couple toddling down the street. He found just exactly where her trouble was. Sure. But He promised. I’m just going to watch. 62 Now. what’s your address? Where do you live?” He’d have the psychopathic group up there after you right away. and see if He will. Uh-huh. “Lord. get your husband. We have no dealings.
you’d be gone. 208 And dear God. but He gave him the seal of circumcision as a confirmation of his belief. and so forth. . .” Any gift of God is operated by you.] One time when Israel was cornered into a corner. People are lined up. 66 Now. That made it hard on preachers that don’t believe in divine healing. . and afflicted. He made it out of things He had nothing to make it with. It’s not me. How’d God make the world? Hebrews 1. “Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God. And now you’re the seed of Abraham. by the patient. “That’s true. And now. One writer said that God looked down through that pillar of fire. . Lord. . Now. to ever who it is. So I’ve got to be real sure. 206 Heavenly. What did I say? He believes like God believes. He just said. but how this works. And the very ground that you’re sitting over tonight is nothing else but the Word of God made manifest. I really do. you’re getting away from your Baptist doctrine when you go to say. It’s supernatural. I’ve spoke the best that I know how. “Why did Paul say. many of you. There’s people here. with signs following. And Abraham believed God and received the circumcision as a seal of the promise that was to come. he said. “If you haven’t received the Holy Ghost yet. I pray. Think of it. ‘receiving the Holy Ghost. here where Your presence is. some way I could make you believe it. And the Holy Spirit dwelling in the man makes him a son of God. I feel pretty religious right now. and when we receive Christ as personal Saviour. Brother Cox? Some handkerchiefs? Oh. How do you do? Now. He’s doing it. That would make a Baptist shout. But that’s what the Bible said. “The only thing he can do is believe. He’s the same God. and it was imputed unto him for righteousness. now I stand here before You. the Lord willing. because He promised to do it. and you didn’t believe Him. know nothing about you. I want to take just a few moments to explain the best that I can. step this mic up a little farther. the Bible said. 73 And Abraham took God’s Word at the impossible till it was made 72 69 68 67 GEN15:6 ROM4:3 GAL3:6 JAS2:23 ROM4:11 EPH4:30 MATT13:58 HEB11:3 ROM14:11 PHIP2:11 REV1:7 But for instance. Old mothers. “He c-o-u-l-d n-o-t. confirm Your Word.” Ephesians 4:30 says. and wives. If it isn’t. wait a minute. God bless your hearts. Brother Branham. the promise of God is just as real tonight to the seed of Abraham.28 FAITH 9 here and things to show His authority. I guess we’re strange to each other.’” Said. A man said to me the other day. I ask in Jesus’ name. “You were preaching on Abraham. pushing it with my nose. . will You speak and tell the people and let them know that I have told the truth. I take the nature of my father. 71 And when you become a son of God. and pushing it with my nose all the way around this city. “Let there be. “We received it when we believed. and he believes like God believes. Well. and ‘Abraham believed God. You just disbelieve and it’ll never work. lady? I do not know you. Oh. and so forth are laying tonight sick and afflicted. where did He get the material to make it with? Where did it come from? God spoke His Word and believed His Word. And the Holy Ghost is the seal of God. as it was to Abraham. then. friends. you’d be gone. God’s never recognized your faith. [Blank spot on tape. . . If there was. 205 Now. . When He come to His own country. whereby you’re sealed until the next revival?” Oh. Amen.” How long? Forever. may God look back through the blood of Jesus and remember His promise. 203 Oh. the Red Sea had them blocked off. . they won’t be here.” I said. I’d. tomorrow night. and putting it on the floor here. . we have received the promise itself: the baptism of the Holy Spirit. God settled it once for all. . and old. ‘cause God’s path led through it. . 204 I don’t want to see you. telling the people of Your goodness and Your promise. Lord God. could not do many mighty works because of their unbelief. “I want to ask you something. would make you believe. waiting for these handkerchiefs. it would never work. they want me to keep them here? Let’s bow our heads just a moment. he said. .” I said. and little children. 70 If you’re not deceived in your experience--that same spirit was with Abraham is in the seed of Abraham and you believe God. here stands a lady. and the sea got scared and moved back and made a way for Israel to pass over to the promised land. or the people. Now. are they all lined up. and may they cross to the land of good health and strength. people are sitting in the audience. and dads.” Said. you can’t explain it. ‘Have you received it since you believed?’?”--Acts 19. are we. What else can a person do but believe? And God imputed it to him for righteousness because he believed. And where did. 209 All right. no! “Until your eternal destination. I don’t know a one of you. Why? Because God has promised and by grace are we called. because I am his son. I’d start off right now doing it. I wished I could. right out on the street. if I come back a year from now.” I said. If Christ was standing right here Himself.” And He believed His Word. 207 When these handkerchiefs is put upon the sick. . You know. 211 210 who it’s made to. “Now. If taking a quarter. Through Christ’s name.’” Said. And I’ll have to stand with you at the day of judgment and answer for what I speak of. This crowd of people. It’s not me. And may the sickness depart from their body. And God does know you.
remember. And I know it’s the truth. you see. That’s right. 199 You go to India and you find they want to clown for you. and has promised the Holy Ghost to come back and do the very same things that Christ did. you say . they are patterning off of a real genuine Christian somewhere. 75 Put me on record for this and on these tapes that’s going on: The right mental attitude towards any divine promise of God will bring it to pass. Where you see a bogus. God has real. eat a big dinner. 77 So. and the doctor said. . that’s been misused. I stood by a dying child. Watch Him what He’s doing here in your midst. ” Now. “Amen. sir. “I’m an old man. remember. Abraham called every other thing wrong and against hope. . it’ll be forgiven you. You say. We’re a little bit earlier than . would you let me in to give him the last rites?” 76 1COR12:3 pass.” And he said. . That’s right. if you’re blind. because He promised He would do it. And where is . If you’ll. not to show His authority. An old father sent for me to come. it will produce exactly what it said to do. not say. And the Jews laughed and made fun of Christ.” He said. and I said. I’ve been .” And you’ll never be no better as long as you look at your hand. . And the same promise that was made to Abraham has been made to you. I’m in these meetings. There wasn’t even a hope.” 82 I went down at the hospital. Now. I said. but you don’t know it yourself until you’ve experienced it. They look at Who said the Word. Anything contrary to Him or contrary to His Word is false. . coming to the platform as the people come. and they said He was Beelzebub. that witch is impersonating a real true prophet of God. “If I was a priest and he was a Catholic boy. The whole course of life was changed. 80 Here some time ago. . and she brought forth a Baby knowing no man. I know there’s four or five different kinds of cards out here now. . “The boy’s dying. because she took God at His Word. I kept talking to him. His Word shall be made manifest. or whatever you have. finally he let me go.” 81 He said. it’s made off of a real one. Where there’s a false. a fortuneteller. . . yet believed in hope. That’s right. if you’ll look at it right and realize who made it. “Look.” And God tore His life in two at Calvary. “Brother Branham. My hand was crippled.29 LUKE12:10 And Jesus said. remember.” and I said. . [Blank spot on tape. we’re going to call a prayer line and pray. but when the Holy Ghost comes and does the same thing. “Well. give some to speak with tongues. Remember. So. God said so. I was prayed for. been unconscious two days. I read it in the Bible. 78 Now. That’s a hypocrite. Now.” He healed the sick to fulfill the Word of God.” Quit looking at that. When you see a bogus dollar. . “You say that against Me. See the things that He’s taking place. “Oh. took God at His Word. “Just come pray the prayer. “Here I heal the sick to show My authority. the virgin. Oh. Jesus come. “Well. it’s impersonating. one word against it. . I give this promise through the Word of the living God. Satan has perverted something and making a false conception of some real thing God has. As a servant of the Lord. Mary. . The Bible said that you can’t know that Jesus is the Christ only by the Holy Spirit. And Abraham took God at His Word. I believe in you. God swore that He would do it. because He could discern their spirit and tell them what was their troubles and so forth. my baby’s a dying. . .” 202 God promised to do it. God promised to heal. remember. I’m just here. How many understood me. the man was a Catholic. clowning. I said. . 74 And if anybody will take God at His Word. Before. no man can even call Jesus the Christ only by the Holy Spirit. . “If you’ll come and pray for him. my only son. Brother Branham. sir. “I ain’t any better. and everything like that. And He’s give some interpretations. It’s been very much misused. 200 Now. 198 When you see an old hypocrite walking down the street and you know they’re a hypocrite. if you’re dying with a cancer. there’s a real one that’s made off of. you might say. And if that seed falls on the right kind of a ground. but it’s true just the same.” Said. When you see anything false. ” I said. . What God said. 201 MATT12:32 MARK3:28. “and under no anointing. but it’s a gift of God just the same. . “You are so-and-so. boy about twelve years old.

The seed of Abraham don’t look at the condition. back in that kingdoms back in there in the interior. He’s unconscious. God swore that He’d do it. When you see a false gift of something pretending. that’s the seed of Abraham. 195 Now. because God said so.] 196 . That’s right. in my way of thinking. And God’s not healing the sick and showing signs and wonders . . if you’re crippled. you’re doomed forever in this world or the world to come. that’s impersonating a real dollar.10 FAITH 27 possible. and. and called those things which were not as though they were.” Remember.

You don’t have to go off after such stuff as that. but I’d just rather stay with the Word. . he sent me back there.” 84 Oh. “If I had that kind of faith. did you know that’s antichrist? Did you know that’s against Christ?” If that’s divine. it never comes back again. And I said.” And that boy is married and got a wife and child now. and there’s where I believe it. said. He had black diphtheria and this one. Said. “Just let me in.26 187 FAITH JOHN5:19 11 Now. but it’ll be called Peter.
