1Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
2ohn 4: 1 When therefore the Lord knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John,2 (Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples,)3 He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee.4 And he must needs go through Samaria.5 Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.6 Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour.7 There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.8 (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.)9 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.11 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. 15 The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.16 Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.17 The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband: 18 For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly.19 The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet. 20 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.21 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. 22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. 25 The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. 26 Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.27 And upon this came his disciples, and marvelled that he talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest thou? or, Why talkest thou with her?28 The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men,29 Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?30 Then they went out of the city, and came unto him.
3Christ is the Mystery of God Revealed 27 Now, this week has been a week of great blessings. We had private interviews this week of people who'd been waiting since the Seven Seals. And I don't doubt but some of them of 'course was called in from out of the town, across the nation. But the morning before the interviews started, setting in the room, the Holy Spirit let me write out exactly everything they knew, everything they wanted to ask, rotate the questions just the way they wanted to, and tell them their dreams and interpretations before they ever told me. Now, the people are in the room there. And I'd go ahead and let them talk. They'd say, "Well, Brother Branham, I come such and such."
28 I said, "Now, remember, we have assembled here not for fellowship; we haven't come here to fellowship with one another. There is a question in your mind, in your heart that you've stumbled into and you don't know what it is. And maybe I'll be able by the help of God to do it." I said, "Remember, the Queen of the South had some questions too when she came to Solomon. And the Bible said there wasn't nothing revealed, or held back to what Solomon couldn't answer for." And I said, "A greater than Solomon is here. (See? That's right.) The Lord Jesus promised, “Wherever two or three are gathered in My Name, there I am in the midst of them”. (See?) And “whatsoever thing they can think of or desire and shall ask, it shall be given to them.” And now your question is something you don't know about, something you don't know how to approach about, something you don't know what to do about."
29 And I said, "Again the Scripture said this, that “the Angels of God are encamped about those who fear Him”. So in another world where the five senses does not declare... The five senses only contacts this world. If you had no feeling, you couldn't feel nothing. Feeling wouldn't mean nothing to you; that'd be another world. If you had no sight, what you look at would be another world to you; you'd know nothing about it. So these five senses is the only thing that God let us loose to. Now, there is another one called faith. But by faith you walk up a ladder, and finally you can get so high until you break into another world, which is visions. There you can see; just like if you never knowed what this was you was feeling, with your sense of feeling, never seen it, then your eyes come open, you could see it. It'd be all mystery to that person who never could see. It'd be a mystery to him. But yet, that's it."
4Now, notice brother Branham is talking about things that are a mystery here, and remember his sermon is entitled “Christ is the Mystery of God Revealed”.
30 And in there, the Lord, Before we got here, to people from across the country, everywhere, from north, south, west come in for these interviews; and as soon as they'd get through talking, just exactly the questions they would ask, the thing that they would ask about, I'd say, "Watch here," raise over and there was a piece of paper with every question, in rotate, just exactly the way they asked it (was going to ask it), their answer down here to the question, just the way it was answered out. The Lord is great; He knows all things. But yet, it taken me about three days to come out of that afternoon, what it was, such a tear-down.
31 And now, I thought to get it though, before we left... And there is the proper way, the real way to individuals. Now, there are things can be said, and if the people's here that knows that secrets of hearts that was revealed that would absolutely; it would be horrible; it'd cause crime; it'd cause somebody to shoot another, or something, if that'd be revealed right here at the platform like this, in a public--before the public. It would cause penitentiary offenses, and everything else that would...
32 But when you're sitting together like that, the Holy Spirit--just two of you together... But we understand this, that what they ask me is private. I say nothing about it. And what I say to them, it's up to them whether they want to say it or not. See? But it would be known between us--the interview. That's taking a person one at a time and sitting there until everything is completely settled (See?), the Holy Spirit.
33 And then, to think of the grace of the Holy Spirit telling me all about it, to each one (a whole line of them) before they ever even got here; across the country, coming people I never seen in life. And write it out so that they would know, just a routine according to the questions the way they would answer it...
34 One brother had questions on the serpent's seed that I didn't get to answer just exactly, 'cause their little half-hour was up. I hope that he got it all right, the answers to it on the paper. He had it wrote out, and he didn't get to all of his answers, so I just give him the writing back--the answers on the paper. If he hasn't, Billy Paul has it. I know the man's sitting here; I just looked at him just a few moments ago. So if he wants to find that, it's wrote out on a piece of paper: your answers to your questions.
6What this is, I believe it is Hebrews 4:12 For the Word of God is quick, (that means it is alive) and powerful,(which means it is full of energy, it is active, and it is operative) and sharper (which means it is very decisive, in other words pinpoint accurate) sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing (or penetrating) even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (it is so decisive it’s judgments are pinpoint accurate) 13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight (presence): but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do. 14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. 15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. It’s all about the grace of God.
7Now, let me just say this about what we just read from Br. Branham’s sermon this morning. We see how the Word of God discerns and can divide the past from the future, even to the point where the Holy Spirit showed Br. Branham what questions each person would ask and at the same time, giving him the answers to their questions in the same order they would ask them. Even showing him dreams they had. And he even said there were some questions that they would not have time to get to in the timeframe of the 30 minute counseling session, but he even had those questions wrote down along with the answer to those questions that were on their minds, but were unable to get to them due to lack of time. It reminds me that the Bible tells us that before we even ask, God will answer. Then I hope that you can see that if this mortal man called William Branham, one who was born in sin, shaped in iniquity, and came to the world speaking lies can so yield himself to God that God Who is the Word can tell him in advance what people will say, what they have dreamed, what their questions are in their mind, even better than they could say their questions, and then have the answer written down before they even ask the question, then how much more the son of God who was not born in sin, was not shaped in iniquity, and did not come to the world speaking lies. And he sits at the right hand of the Father ever making intercession for our confession.
9The Apostle Paul said in Romans 8:26 Likewise The Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but The Spirit Itself (that is God’s very own Spirit) maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 And He that searches the hearts (that’s Hebrews 4:12 the Word of God searches the hearts) He that searches the hearts knows what is the mind of The Spirit, because He maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. 28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
10Now, here is the thing I would like to examine here. Brother was talking about people coming from great distances to get counseling from him on very personal matters, and yet days before they even showed up, he not only knew what questions they would ask, but the order in which they would ask those questions, as well as what dreams they would share with him, and on top of that what the answers were to their questions.
11Then we read here that the Apostle Paul tells us “The Spirit knows what we should pray for” even more than we know ourselves. So in fact he knows our mind better than we know our own mind. And it is The Spirit that makes intercession on our behalf for us, because we sometimes, can’t even express in words what it is that is troubling us, But God knows exactly what it is because the Word of God discerns right down to the pinpoint accuracy knowing the thoughts and even our intentions of the heart.
14If we could only understand the grace of God, brothers and sisters, that he wishes to help you more than you want to be helped. But until we can die to self, and let go and let God, even though He has predestined us to a certain thing we so often get in the way of God bringing the thing we are predestined to, to pass.
15To make it plainer, let me put it this way. The farmer buys the seed to plant in his field, but before he can plant the seed he must till the soil. Then once the soil is prepared to receive the seed, he is free to plant that seed. But many times we think our soil is tilled and ready for the seed when it is not. It is our own mind games that get in our way from receiving what God has for us to receive. And that is why I keep preaching that you must die to self in order for God to manifest in you what He ordained to be manifest.
16The Apostle Paul said in Romans 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. (Now, what does that mean? It means God knew your outcome even before it ever became manifested what that outcome is. By Foreknowledge God knew, because he ordained you to it. So He knew before you knew. Now, let me repeat that. God knows more about you than you than you know about yourself. And since God made you and ordained for you to be conformed to the image of His eldest son, you will one day manifest what He ordained you to manifest. But in order for you to become what He foreknew you to be, you must make certain changes to get there. And the one big change you have to do is get out of the way. Let go of all you hold dear, and all you place above what God has for you. When you can die to self, then God can make manifest what He has ordained for you. But as long as you think you got it all figured out, you are just in the way of His plan. But when you can get yourself and your ideas out of the way and let go and let God, then He is free to complete that which He began in you.)
17Romans 8:30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. 31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? 32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
18Now, look, God wants to freely give you all things, but we sometimes get in His way of giving. In other words, if we do not have what he has ordained for us to have, do not blame him, blame yourself for not getting out of his way.
1933 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth. 34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
20Now, I am going to show you what I mean by reading a couple stories brother Branham told in his sermon, Do you now believe Tape: 53-1206E And I want you to pay close attention to one thing in this story. In this story there is a person with a real need. And this person who has this need went to br. Branham because things were not working together for her. She would go from preacher to preacher seeking healing. She would go from psychologist to Psychiatrist and yet no hope for her nervous condition.
21Jesus promised us in John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. 13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. 15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
22Now, the promise is that if you believe you will do what he does. And then he also promised, whatever you ask he will do it. Not whatever you ask you will do it, you’ve got to get out of the way. Whatever you ask the Father in My name I will do it, whatever it is that you ask I will do it. He said, “I will do it”. So that means when you try to do it yourself it will not get done. You have to stop pushing your way and your will and let His way and His will be done. And until Dr. Adair got out of the way, all he was getting was a lot of frustration.
23Now, I hope you can see here that the all knowing God who “predestinated all things to work together for your good,” Not only foreknew you and your outcome, but ordained you to that outcome, and the only thing hanging up the process is you. Because as long as you think you can produce anything, you are only in his way. If God said it, just get out of the way and let Him do it. Now, I am going to read another story of a woman who had a real need for healing, because she was in such a nervous condition, and didn’t realize that condition was caused by her own actions or lack of action.
24Do you now believe Tape: 53-1206E 36 Now, in that same time there was something happened, just a little thing. There was a little girl, a woman, that went to a Methodist church down in New Albany, Indiana. And this little lady, where her pastor was a very good friend of mine. His name is Brother Johnson. He's in the Army now, and a chaplain. He was in the Army, come out and he had a lovely church there. We were both raised in Kentucky; and he belonged to the, went to the Methodist, and I belonged to the Baptist church. And we were always very good friends, but he lived several miles below me. And he said, "Billy, if you'll just come down to my church, I won't ask you to pray for any sick person while you're home." 'Cause I like to rest a little bit when I'm home. I almost had to be introduced to my family. That's the truth, 'cause (See?), I'm never home long enough. I get home and then when We've been living in this one house for five years, I believe, and we have never eaten one meal in that house with the blinds up. People standing around, in and around the place like that... When you slip off in a room you have to pull the blind down, 'cause they're either knocking on the window or coming in, you know how it is, like that. Wake up all hours through the night, they're laying up and down, little aisle, and up in the yard. I've seen as many as twenty and thirty automobiles at one time, ambulance cases and everything, setting in the drive, waiting. When I get home, day after tomorrow, they'll be there. In the hotels, out in the motels, and everywhere, setting around waiting to be prayed for.
37 You can't turn those people down. God bless their heart; they believe. And they wouldn't, they wouldn't be staying like that. And if something can be done to help them... What if that was my baby or somebody? And that's the reason when I'm home, I seldom get any rest. I get more rest right out like this, 'cause they just protect you from the people (You see?), and you get more rest. So Brother Johnson said, "If you'll just come down and speak for me." Well, that night, the little Methodist church seated about five hundred people, they were standing out on the streets, and they had public address outfit. And one man reached out the back window and took me by the hands and lifted me up, and that's how I got into the place, at the back, at the alley, to go into the place.
38 And that night after speaking, Brother Johnson came to me and said, "Brother Branham," said, "I want to tell you." He said, "I told you I wouldn't ask you to pray for people." And just several had accepted Christ, and all down along we had them lay their hands up towards the windows and so forth, that wanted to accept Christ, there in New Albany. And I said, "Now, that's all right; what is it, brother?” He said, "I got a Sunday school teacher here," and said, "she's a neurotic, very lovely person," but said, "she's... Nervousness has struck her," and said, "she's been about eight years like that." And said, "She's a lovely person, would you... If you'd go out towards the window and down them steps, would you just lay your hands on her?" And I said, "Sure."
39 So as I started out, went down towards the steps, and they had the little woman down at the bottom of the steps. I expected, the way he explained her, to see somebody in a straitjacket. But a lovely, nice looking, clean, little woman, look like, standing there, about thirty years old, thirty-two, and she said, "How do you do, Brother Branham?" I said, "Are you the patient?" She said, "Yes." I said, "What's the matter, sister?" She said, "I don't know, Brother Branham." I laid hands over on her and asked God to heal her.
40 She said she just couldn't... She just prayed; she couldn't get away from the place there, and she was scared to death all the time. And she said, "I've been going over to the psychiatrist and taking treatments, over there, mental treatments." And said, "It cost ten dollars a time." And said, "I go sometimes two times a week." And said, "I've been going for years, and I just get worse all the time." And I said, "Well, God bless you, my sister, and deliver you from that in the Name of Jesus Christ." I went on out. About three days after that, wife and I were in New Albany, and here that little lady was on the street with another woman. She was holding her hands like this, and I said, "Are you any better, sister?" She started crying, she said, "Brother Branham, I'm even getting worse." Well, a little place there called the "White House," where the ladies do their shopping. I stepped up in a little place there and asked prayer for her again.
41 So then, here she come up in a couple days in a car, they brought her up, some women. And they had to hold her to keep her in the car to bring her up. She was just screaming; she was scared the world was going to burst with her. And she was afraid. She was walking on top of the earth and it was going to sink. And oh, all kinds, you know how nervous people are. So I had prayer for her again.
42 And she said, "Brother Branham, when you have a meeting close again, if I have to be put in a straitjacket, I want to come when that anointing is on you, so I can," said, "I believe that you pray for me when the anointing was on, it would cast away that evil spirit from me." I said, "Are you a Christian, you living above sin?" She said, "Yes, Brother Branham, I'm a Sunday school teacher." And I said, "Well, I pray that God will grant it." And she got kind of be a good friend with my wife, calling her on the phone. She said, "Now, if the Angel of the Lord ever comes to Brother Branham while he's at home, you call me, Sister Branham." Well, one morning getting up after a powerful vision, well, my wife said, she said, "honey, is It still present?" I said, "Yes." She said, "Let me call that little woman from New Albany, will you?" I said, "What little woman?"
43 She said, and she said, "Well, that little woman that's so awful nervous," said, "I feel so sorry for the little thing; she's got three children." And I said, "Well, call her." And so I went in and just a few minutes they brought her up, and I said, "Put her to herself over in the room." …
44 So I went in to where she was, and I said, "I want to see her by myself." So then, when the anointing is on, when go you to talking to a person, now watch. When you go to a person, that's when visions start, you contact their spirit. Like Jesus talking to the woman at the well, He contacted her spirit. See? And then the vision takes place. And she set down there, and I said, "How you feeling?" She said, "Brother Branham, I don't know," she said, "I'm just about to go crazy." She said, "I just don't know how I'm going to... can't stand it any longer." And I said, "Now, I want you to try to get quiet and just look here to me just a moment, and talk." She said, "Yes, sir, yes, sir, I--I'm doing the best that I can Brother Branham," like that. Very lovely little person. And After talking to her a few moments, I seen a little black car going like that. The vision left me. I said, "Did you ever have a car accident?" She said, "No, sir, I never did have a car accident."I said, "There's something strange. I seen a little one seated black car a running like that." And she said, "No, I never did have a car accident."
45 And then I went ahead talking to her, here it come again; the vision broke. And I seen her with a blond headed man. And she was riding fast in the car, and a automobile was going, and a train just barely missed them. And she started screaming. I can hear her, but I was still in the vision, and she fainted and fell in the floor. And here was the vision. She was gotten married just before the war. And young girl, and her husband went overseas. And when he went overseas, she started getting lonesome and she started having company with a blond headed boy. And one night being out, she broke her marriage vow and lived untrue to her husband. On the road in, the train almost struck them and killed them. And then when my wife heard her scream, and so she come into the room, we got her up, she begin to scream, said, "Oh, Brother Branham, don't you tell that to nobody; don't you tell that to nobody." I said, "There you are, sister," I said, "unconfessed sin." She said, "But I had..."
46 She had all different people come, anoint her in oil and pray for her, stomp devils, and kick devils, and everything else, but he stayed right there. I said, "And he will stay right there as long as you got that unconfessed sin." She said, "Brother Branham, I confessed that to God." I said, "It wasn't God you sinned against; it was your husband. You got to make that right." She said, "Oh, it'd break up my home." I said, "That's all I can say, lady. There is the cause. And until you make that right, you'll never get any better. That's way back in..." She said, "I don't even think of that."
47 I said, "No, you don't, but your subconscious is thinking of that all the time." And I said, "No psychiatrist could pull that out of you." And I said, "You know that there's nobody in the world knows that but you and that man alone." I said, "God's Holy Spirit has revealed to you and told you where your trouble, now you go make that right with your husband, and then you'll get well." She said, "I can't do it; it would break up our home, Brother Branham." She started crying. Said, "Sister Branham, don't you let him tell nobody that, like that." And My wife said, "Why, he don't tell things like that, sister." Said, "You know, he wouldn't do that."
48 And she said, "Oh, my husband, he would leave me right now." And said, "Would break up my home, what would happen to my little children," and so forth? And I said, "Look, sister. First, clear yourself with God. God will take care of the rest of it." So, she said, "Well, I just can't do it, Brother Branham." I said, "Of course, now that's all I can do, sister. I just done what God told me do. There's your trouble." I said, "They can anoint you with oil, every five minutes through the day, for the rest of your life, it'll never do you any good." I said, "They might lay their hands on you and stomp and kick devils and say, 'Get out of here, Satan,' but you don't have to holler at him. He knows what faith is. He knows what your life is, so there's no need of you trying to bluff him. He will stay right there, and got a right to stay there. He knows what his rights is, what he can do and what he can't." And she said, "Well, I just can't do it."
49 I started to walk away, and she started crying. I looked back, and standing by her side stood another man in a vision. I said, "Isn't your husband a kind of a tall man?" "Yes." "He has black hair." "Yes." "Combs it over sideways, kind of wavy." "Yes." And I said, "He's a deacon in that church." "Yes." And I said, "He's got the same rotteness to confess to you." I said, "When he landed in France, told about a girl with him." Then said, "Working... Doesn't he work for the Chevrolet company?" Said, "Yes, he does."
50 And I said, "There's a lady works in there that's black headed, in the office." I said, "He was in a green Chevrolet car, and he was out in a lane at a certain place with that woman. She was wearing a pink dress, no more then the day before yesterday. He's got the same thing to confess." "Why," she said, "not my husband; he's a deacon." I said, "No wonder Brother Johnson can't get nowhere down there.” I said, "Such as that in your church.” That's right. That's what's a whole lots a matter with a lot of churches too. God will never bless over sin. And I said, "You go get your..." She said, "My husband wouldn't." I said, "All right, that's all I know now." I said, "You go get your husband and make that thing right, and you all get your life straighten up, then God will be with you." Well, I went on in to see another person. And then when I come back, Meda... She went in and called her husband on the phone, and the other ladies come, and they went, and met. My wife said, "Do you think they'll come back?" I said, "Sure, they'll be back."
51 So it hadn't been but a little while; my wife said, "Look, coming up the steps." Here they come with their arms around one another, just a crying, the tears running down their cheeks. I opened the door. I said, "What about it?" He said, "Brother Branham," said, "my wife called me, and I got in the car," said, "she come confessing to me that a wrong that she had did. And then," said, "she come accuse me of the same thing. And I said, 'Where you been?' "And then," said, "it's the truth, Brother Branham." Said, "I don't know you. I've heard of you by Brother Johnson." But said, "I never seen you, but I want to shake your hand and say, 'It's the absolutely truth, and I'm guilty, and no good to be called a father of my children, or a deacon in that church. And as soon as I can get Brother Johnson, I'll resign from my job.'"
52 I said, "Don't do that; just get right with God and continue with your job." See? I said, "No need of doing that." He said, "Oh, if God would forgive me." I said, "Sure He'd forgive you. Now, you confess to your wife and ask her to forgive you. You all forgive one another?” "Yes." I said, "Now, set down. Now, is the time." Then when I went down and said, "Heavenly Father, this demon has tormented this girl for all these years, has no legal right to hold her now. Because it's done been found and made right, now come out of her in the Name of Jesus Christ.” And she's perfectly normal and well from that time on. See, see? What is it? It goes slow, but we get the cause. See what I mean? Visions, that's the reason some of you send me letters and say, "Brother Roberts will pray for five hundred while I'm praying for two." God...
53 Brother Roberts is praying for people the way God told him to do it. I'm doing the way God told me to do. See? So it's just slow, but I--I want to know what I'm doing. And before I condemn a Satanic spirit and so forth, I want to know first whether that's in God's legal plan. It is God's... As Brother Bosworth says, "Jesus died for everyone." That's right. Then if you're living in above that reproach and doing right, then Satan has to turn loose of you. But if there's anything back behind there, maybe something that you ought to have done, maybe you're living clean and pure; but God told you something to do and you neglected to do it, and God holds that right on you until you go back and make that thing right again, whether it's something you should've done of should not have done. Do you see what I mean?
54 Now, but friends, with sincerity and working for the Kingdom of God, yet I labor under the name of a psychologist, or a fortuneteller, or a devil, or some... But I'm only happy; I'm only glad that I can represent Jesus Christ. And He knows my heart. And He's knows that I'm no psychologist or fortuneteller, I'm a Christian, your brother, trying my best for the Kingdom of God, by the power of God, to help His poor sick suffering children. And I pray to God with all my heart, soul, and mind, tonight, that you'll be one that He will help. Can we bow our heads just a moment for prayer. Heavenly Father, it's so sweet to come to You in the Name of Thy Son. And I bless tonight, as Your servant, these people. You said, "Whatever you bind on the earth, I'll bind it in heaven." Remit all of our sins tonight, Lord. I pray that You'll do it. And grant, Lord, that there will not be one person who's present now, that'll be lost in the great final day. May every one of them be saved.
55 God bless the churches of this city, their pastors, their people; I pray that You'll do it, Lord. Maybe some of them don't agree just with Your great power, but yet they're Your children. Satan may have them blinded, but yet You love them; You're bearing with them. I pray that You'll just bless them. And may the day come when this little seeds that's been planted down here in this city...I come, heavenly Father, feeling that I come doing what You told me to do. And I've declared Your Son's Name among the people. And I'm thankful that Your Son has a vindicated Your servant, that I have told the truth. And now, the people are without excuses. And I pray, God, that You'll bless every one.
25I hope we can all see by this story, that God is wanting to help you even more than you are willing to let him help you. But you have to die to yourself, and let His will be your will. Now, I know this principle brother Branham lays out here is true because this happened to me years ago, without the visions of course.
26But I was 25 years old and was asked to come and pray for a man who was the father of a person in our church. He was due to have two disks taken out because they were so corrupted, according to the X-rays. He had was paralyzed on his left side and could not move his left side of his body at all. Well, we stopped by the bospital on a Sunday. He was scheduled to have the disks removed on Monday. I explained to him about healing and how when that spirit leaves the body, that body part may bloat up some and cause extra pain, but do not disbelieve your healing or that spirit may come back. I explained to him that if he had any un-confessed sin, God would not hear our prayer, so we would take three minutes for him to examine his conscience and then he would commit to God to make those things right when he had the first opportunity to do so. He agreed, we prayed and immediately I felt very terrible as if I had just committed some great sin. I left the room, went and found the first room that was empty. It was a bathroom in the hallway. I locked the door got on my face and asked God what was wrong. He spoke to my heart and said you did not confess your sins. I then sought my conscience for any sin that I needed to make right, and he showed me a certain attitude I had with a certain brother that was not right. I told the Lord I would make that thing right. Then he spoke to my heart and said go pray for him again. I did not move. I stayed there on my knees. That still voice became much louder within and said go pray for him again. Still I did not move from my knees. Then a third time it just about shook my entire body, and said Go pray for him again. I then asked, what am I to tell him, Lord, and the reply came back, tell him the truth.
29Notice, God is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, that means that God is willing to do so much more than we would even dare to ask or even think. And so when he ordained that we be conformed to the image of His first born son, the only reason we are not there yet is because we are in his way.
30The same Apostle who said God is willing to do so much more than we would ask or think, also said in 2 Corinthians 9:8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:
32So not only is God wanting to give to you more abundantly and far exceeding what you would ask or even dare to think, but he also is able to make all grace abound and overflow so that you have all sufficiency in all things so that this overflow to you may abound unto all good works in and through you.
