( Notes and Excerpts from Dr. Bill Branham's Messages)
"And when the greatest Prince that ever stood on earth was led to Calvary as an antidote for sin, there He died to take away the sins of the world. And "He was wounded for our transgressions, and bruised for our iniquities, and with His stripes we were healed."
(STAND.STILL.AND.SEE.THE.SALVATION/ CHICAGO.IL 57-0629)
"If It healed the sick in that day, the same inoculation will do for you today. If It was a--an antidote to sin, an antidote to sickness, It's the same thing today."
(WHY.title CHATAUQUA.OH 59-0813)
"If a doctor wrote a formula, prescription, and you added something to it, or taken some away from it, you'd kill your patient. That's right. You've got to keep it just the way it's wrote. There's enough antidote there to upset the poison, enough poison to kill the germs. And too much poison in it without the antidote would kill the patient and--and too much antidote without the poison... What would it do? It wouldn't help your patient. So you've got to keep it right.
And that's the way God's Word is. It's God's prescription. Yes, brother. It's God's prescription to His people to cure every sickness, every disease. Sin and physical, whatever it may be, it's all met in God's Word. Amen. It's God's Word. It was so at the beginning; it was so in the middle age; it's so in every age, and It's so this morning; just the same as It was when He spoke It, 'cause It cannot deviate one speck because It's God's Word."

"You have to make a decision. Are you going to feel and say, "Is my heart better?" Or, "Is my stomach not as quite as bad as it was?" "Can I move my fingers just a little more?" Don't think about that. Make your decision that Christ heals you and that settles it, and you're well.
What if a farmer went and planted a great big wheel of wheat, and every morning he got out there and dug all that wheat up to see if it was going to sprout or not. As long as he keeps digging up the seed, it will never grow. Every time you dig it up, it delays it another day. And every time you look at your symptoms, it delays you too in your healing.
The farmer just commits the seed to the ground. He gets the best seed he can find. He puts it in the ground, because he's made a decision he wants a crop. So he goes and gets the best seed he can find. Now, he wouldn't have very much faith in a crop that it might be mixed up with jimsonweed, and--and white top, and daisies, and so forth. He wouldn't have much faith in that kind of seed. But if he's got the best seed that he can buy, germitized seed, a hybrid, and he lays it in the ground, he just commits it to the ground and don't look at it no more.
That's up to God to take care of the rest of it. And the best Seed I can find is the Word of God, because It's eternal. Just commit It to your heart, not to your head. You'll keep digging It around, turning It around, saying, "Well, if Doctor So-and-so said so... My pastor said days of miracles is past." Put It in your heart. Let It alone. Start acting as if you already had your crop. Get your sickles all sharp. Get ready to go into the field. Don't dig It up every morning, just leave It there. If It's germitized, It will work. It'll raise a crop. If It isn't...
Looky here if I ask tonight of cancer cases, blindness, crippled, lame, halt, all kinds of diseases by the tens of thousands are healed. It'll work if you'll put It in the right place. But if you lay It up on the shelf, It'll never do any good. Did not Jesus say, "'Less a corn of wheat fall in the earth and perish..." Unless you can take that wheat, and don't try to turn it over and look at it, and guess about it, just commit it to your heart and forget about it. It's your decision that God will take the rest of it."

"You might have a lot of hindrances. You might have the doctor's word, the scientific man who has examined you. It might be that he, that man told you, "You--you're going to die; you..." That's all he knows. He--he's told you all he studied. His scientific work shows that--that you must die. Your whole system's made in that kind of a way, that death has struck it, and there's nothing can keep it from going on. You're going. Now, that's as much as he knows. No science has no medicine for it.
But you found something. You pick up the sword. See? Now, of course, you got a hindrance; you got something that's going to duel against you: that devil, that disease, that affliction. But when you strike the tip of swords with that devil yonder, and say, "It's THUS SAITH THE LORD. He revealed it to me, and I am healed." Oh, my. Your faith don't have any hindrances."
(BALM.IN.GILEAD.title CLEVELAND.TN 59-0707)
" Listen to me. I'm going to say something big. Every time that you look at your symptoms, you're delaying your healing. Don't dig it up again. It's committed to Him that promised to heal, Him that heals the rest of them.
When you pass through the prayer line and hands is laid upon you, the Bible said, "the prayer of faith shall save the sick." Don't say, "Well, let's see if I feel any better, my heart any better, my hands..." Don't do that. You're delaying it. Commit it to the ground because it is a seed.
What does a seed do? Look at a little--look at a little--little apple tree out here. You people raise a lot of apples. Look at a little apple tree when it's no more than what we call in the east, a sprig, a little tree about like that. Did you know that every apple, that'll ever be on that tree is in it right then? If it isn't, where did it come from? Where did it come from? And that apple tree that's got--going to produce you hundreds of bushels of apples, where did they come from?
When you set that little plant out, about like that, just out of an apple seed, and set it out there, and every apple that'll ever be on there, it's got in it then, potentially every--hundreds of bushels of apples that You'll collect off of it, and it ain't a half-inch high. Amen. There You are. Where does it come from? It's in the apple then.
And when you are planted into His death, burial, and resurrection--planted in Christ, and receive His Holy Spirit Life in you, everything that you've got need of all the way through the journey is in you right then, for you become the Seed. See it? God in His Word.
Now, what does a tree have to do? When you plant it, the only thing you have to do is water it, and then it's got to drink. The leaves are in it; the apples are in it; the--everything's right in the tree. But it's got to drink. It's got to drink more than its portion. And as it drinks, it pushes out, pushes out leaves, pushes out blossoms, pushes out apples. But it's got to keep drinking, drinking, drinking, in order to push out.
And when we take a promise of God, drop it into our heart, we keep watering it with faith; and it keeps pushing out, pushing out. Hallelujah. When Christ is planted in our heart, the Holy Ghost, the only thing we do is drink in the Word of God. And it pushes out salvation; it pushes out Divine healing; it pushes out glory; it pushes out everything that we have need of; is right in us when we're planted in Christ Jesus."
(SHOW.US.THE.FATHER.title SALEM.OR 62-0722)
" When thousands around us and around the world where the great healing revivals are striking now... Right at this very hour there's people being healed all around the world. The hour is here.
Now, we look at our symptoms. Shame on us. when Jonah in--under them circumstances could look away from his symptoms... He said he refused to look at them. He said, "They're lying vanities. I will look towards Your holy temple."
O God, give us men and women with rugged faith, who'll not look to symptoms or look at anything the devil hands you. Hand it back to him. Say, "I believe in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. I believe in His all-sufficient power. I believe that His Presence is here now to set me free from any bondage that Satan put upon me. And I look to the--where He sits at the right hand of God, ever living to make intercession to me with His own Blood." As a High Priest He sets there, and but how much more ought we to look to the holy place of God where Jesus Himself, our Mediator, the only One between God and man, stands with His own Blood to make intercessions on our confession. Amen. Don't get... "Amen" means "so be it." I believe it with all my heart."
(GREATER.THAN.SOLOMON.IS.HERE.title TUCSON.AZ 63-0605)
" Now, Paul speaking here of the valley, or the shadow, rather, the law, being a shadow of good things to come, could never make the worshipper perfect. Then he goes on to show what the perfection is. Now, it's a strange thing that this is so much thought of people; they say, "Well, I'm weak; my faith is not very much; I'm not a very good Christian." That's just what the devil wants you to say. You're just talking his language right then. See? You mustn't never say that. Don't never let your testimony be negative; let it be positive all the time. "I am saved. I have God in my heart. I believe Him with all my heart." Do you believe in Divine healing? "With all of my heart."
Let your--your testimony always and your thoughts, everything... Never permit a negative thought to come in your mind if you can help it. When it starts that, don't entertain it. Well, you say, "I can't help the thoughts from coming." Well, that'll be like the farmer that said he couldn't stop--he couldn't stop the birds from flying over his place, but he could sure stop them from roosting." So that's a--that's a good thing. You see? You can't help the thoughts when they come, but don't--don't--don't entertain them; just pass it on. "No, sir. Jesus Christ is my Saviour; all things are mine by God. And I--I'm going to keep them. I'm going to testify of them."
And God can only bless you as you confess that He has done it for you. See, He's the High Priest of our confession. Is that right? Hebrews 3. He said that He's the High Priest of our confession. He can only do for us as we accept it, and believe it, and confess it."
(LAW.title CHICAGO.IL 55-0115)
" And when we turn aside today looking at this, and looking at conditions, and looking at symptoms... Oh, we say, "Now look, I was prayed for last night. You see, my hand's no better." And it never will be like that. No, sir. You don't look at the symptoms; you look at the promise. Amen. The promise is what it is. Look Who made the promise. It was God Who made the promise. It's God's Word Who's in authority. It's God Who spoke the promise. That's Who it is.
And you look at your symptoms. Symptoms are one of the greatest hindrance God has to work with, is symptoms. And if ever if anything that is wrong is a man or woman who'll look and say, "Now, I don't feel any better. Now, they prayed for me over at my church last night. And they believe in Divine healing, but really I don't feel any better."
You don't never go by your feelings. Jesus never did say, "Did you feel it?" He said, "Did you believe it?" See where you get the thing all turned around? It's your faith in His promise that does it. Like Elisha, he wanted the promise. And if Elijah said he could have it, if he kept his eye on him, he kept his eye on him. That's all. Amen."
(SECOND.MIRACLE.title ERIE.PA 51-0729E)
" You watch, I see the blind come to the platform and receive their sight and read the Bible. Two or three days, come back just as blind as they ever was. Say, "How lasting is Divine healing? " Just as long as faith is. "How lasting is salvation?" Just as long as faith remains. Is that right? All right. If God can make it leave here, He can keep it away. The same faith."
(SECONDHANDED.ROBE.title BROOKLYN.NY 56-1206)
" If you worked in a bank where plenty of money was, but you can only take out what they'll let you take out. Is that right? I may be in fellowship with God, where all the powers to heal every person in the world. That is true. But I can only do what He says do. And it's not me that does the healing; it's your own faith that contacts God and heals you; and He speaks through His gift and tells you you're healed. See what I mean? You got that?
I have nothing to do with the healing. I'm just a mouthpiece for your prayer to God. See? It's your prayer has reached God. And He's telling me that you're healed, then I believe it, and I speak it to you. If you believe it, then you're healed. Now, notice. No matter what the symptoms are now, you believe it."
(ANGEL.AND.THE.COMMISSION.title CLEVELAND.OH 50-0821)
" There's no doubt, but what when you receive God's blessing and was born again, you... The people thought you were crazy. They said, "That person's just a little bit off." You see, you're moving by faith. Oh. You're making preparations for something that the world knows nothing about. They only live just as far as they can see. But we live by things we don't see, that we believe that God said was true. Faith doesn't look at a thing that you can see. Faith looks at things you don't see."
