( Notes and Excerpts from Dr. Bill Branham's Messages)
"Now, sickness is an attribute of sin. It's just one of the things that come because of sin. Now, if you've done something in your life that you know that's wrong, well you make that right. That's usually the cause here at the platform, is to trace down and find something in their life there, that they did that caused them not to be able to be healed until they are--until they make that right. And then when they make that right with God, then God will heal them."
(AS.I.WAS.WITH.MOSES/ LA.CA 1951-0503)
You say, "A cancer's spirit?"
"Yes sir." I can prove to you that that is a life and the devil. Now, as old fashion, as it seems to be, but there's not a sickness in the world but what's caused by the devil. Sickness came from the devil. Sickness is a--is a direct or indirect result from sin, maybe not your sin, but something you inherited. Before we had any sin, we had no sickness. After sin came, then sickness was the attributes of sin."
HEALING.WHAT.CANCER.IS.title CHICAGO.IL 53-0904
"And sickness is a direct, or indirect caused by sin. Before we had any sin, we had no sickness. So first, sickness is an attribute of sin, maybe not what you've done, but what you inherited because God promised that it would go even to the third and fourth generations, that He would visit sickness because of the parent's disobedience to Him.
Now, there is sometimes a good doctor. If you go to a doctor, and if he's a good doctor, you say, "Doctor, I got a headache." Now, if he's interested in his patient, he won't say, "Oh, well. Take an aspirin and go home." He won't do that. He's going to find... First he's going to diagnose that case till he finds just exactly where the cause is. See? There's something causing that headache. Maybe an aspirin would take care of it, I--I wouldn't know. But if he's a good doctor, he just wouldn't brush you off like that. He'd do the best that he could for you.
And now, if he'd say, "Well, perhaps you got appendicitis. We'll just operate on you." Well now, without diagnosing the case, that would still be unethical. See, he's--he's got to first find the cause. Well now, that's the way it is in God in these meetings. And the reason that I go slow with the patients is the first thing, there's something caused that sickness. And before you can get rid of the sickness, if the doctor can do nothing for you, then you got to find the cause, the reason for that. So there's many times... And you who attend the meetings, understand how the Holy Spirit will reveal to the people hidden sin and so forth that they--they've done a long years ago, or maybe something that they ought not have done or something they ought to have done and did not do. "
(INNER.MAN/ CHICAGO.IL 1953-1212)
"A cancer, what is it? A germ. What's a tumor? A germ. What's tuberculosis? A germ. All those diseases are germs called cancer, tumor, tuberculosis. That's medical terms. What they are is demons, in the line of the Scripture. They are tormentors, comes into your body to shorten your days on the earth. Now, God doesn't intend them to be there. He doesn't want them there. But Satan, the arch enemy of God and man, is the one that puts them there. They're his little dev--little imps, demons. Ask the doctor what starts cancer. Ask him where tumor comes from. When I was interviewed at Mayo Brothers, years ago, I asked them. I said, "Isn't that beginning of a germ?"
I said, "Isn't a germ life?"
"Yes." I said, "Doctor, where does that life come from?"
He said, "Nobody knows."
It's a devil. That's right. What it is, is a life. Now, remember, the devil can't create. But the devil can take and perverts something that God has created. You understand? Perverts. Now, that was a life that's been perverted from a germ of life to a germ of death. That's what the devil does to your very life, your life."
(HEALING OF JAIRUS' DAUGHTER/1955-0227E)
"We got medical names, call it cancer, epilepsy, and all kinds of things. But Christ called them devils. The word devil, is a "tormentor".
(WHENT EIR EYES WERE OPENED/ SPINDALE.NC/ 1956-0420)
"A growth is a--is a demon; every sickness is of the devil. God would--don't put sickness on His children; the devil does that. See? And if Satan cast out Satan? You say, "Why, the devil heals too." Well, Jesus said he couldn't. He said, "If Satan casts out Satan, his kingdom's divided." So he can't. Only God can heal.
Medicine and doctors do not claim to heal. Mayo Brothers is one of our best authorities. They said, "We do not claim to heal"; said, "we only claim to assist nature. There's only one Healer; that's God." They can sew a place up in your hand, but they can't heal it. They can only sew it up. A dentist can pull a tooth, but who's going to heal the place? A doctor can take appendix out, but who's going to heal the place he cut? God does. Medicine doesn't grow tissue; medicine's only a aid. God is the Healer. A doctor can set your arm; but when he comes and sets your arm, and you don't go out and you're not well... The doctor does his part, what he's taught to do, and knowledge to do. He sets your arm, but he leaves it for God to heal. That's right. All healing is of God. So now, you just believe Him."
(DEEP.CALLETH.TO.DEEP/ WASHINGTON.DC 1954-0624)
"But a tumor, cancer, or any of those growths, they don't have any certain form, because they have--they're not made in any image of human being. Some of them's got legs, and some of them's round like pancakes, and some oblong, more. What is it? It's demons. Jesus called them devils. Was He right? Certainly, He was right. Because the word, "devil," means "a tormentor," cancer, tumor, and diseases that torment you."
(WHAT.IT.TAKES.TO.OVERCOME.ALL.UNBELIEF/ YAKIMA.WA 1960-0729)
"Like a person that's deaf and dumb. The doctor would examine that person. Now, listen close. He'd say, "Well, the nerves is dead in the ear, or on the vocal cords, the nerve is dead, that's the reason you can't speak or--or can't hear; there's no vibration; it's dead.""Well, why didn't it die all over the body then?"
"I don't know," he said, "it just died there."Well, the thing of it is, what the doctor works on is what his five senses will declare: see, taste, feel, smell, and hear."
( WHEN.THEIR.EYES.WERE.OPENED./ SPINDALE.NC 56-0420)
"Well now, a growth, when it dies, the demon goes out of the growth, like tumor, cancer, or cataract, so forth. When the demon goes out of it, which is a life...Every person here come from one little germ, and--and you begin to develop cells, and those cells come into--after the nature of the life that was in it which made man. The cell from the dog makes the dog, and the bird the bird. Every after its nature, every kind...
But now, a demon, which is a growth, or it doesn't have to come in growth, it's... starts developing cells. Say for instance, cancer. It starts to developing cells and becomes larger, larger. Well now, it's got a life, and it's a living, just the same as you was living and developing in the womb of your mother, the same thing, you're developing. But now, when that life is in your life, it's a different life. You've got life to live, and that's a life of death, or, a spirit of death, rather, pardon me. And it's death. Now, it doesn't belong in you; it wasn't in there before, but it's there now.
Well then, who put that in there? It only has to come from one thing; that's the devil. And it's a germ; cancer, tumor, any of those things come from a germ. And you come from a germ too."
(DEEP.CALLETH.TO.DEEP /WASHINGTON.DC 54-0624)
"Now, we've applied it in a healing service, always to the healing side: cancer, tumor, cataract, tuberculosis. All those things are not natural things; they are supernatural and are demons; the Scripture plainly vindicates that. But that is demons in the body with growths like cancer, got life in it, and the life of that is a demon. Growth of a cataract, the spread of tuberculosis, and, other diseases; it's demons. That's in physical form."
(ENTICING.SPIRITS/ JEFF.IN DE 79-112 1955-0724)
"Well, what is the head of all this cause that we're here this morning? What's the head of all of it? What made all this sickness and sin and disgrace? It was sin. See? Before you had any sin... Sickness is a attribute, or something that follows sin. If you don't have no... In other words, it's something that come out of sin. See? Before there was any sin, there was no sickness or nothing: no worry, no nothing, no old age, no breaking down, no heartaches, no broken homes, no nothing. See? It was just perfect. Well, what caused it, was sin, s-i-n. Well, then, sickness followed sin. Broken homes, attributes, immoral livings, and all those things followed sin.
Now, if you kill sin, you've got to kill the attributes, haven't you? You can't--you can't touch... You can't fool with sin, 'less you're fooling with this. And when you fool in this, it results in sin. See? Now, if you kill sin, then you kill the whole thing.
And now--now, you say, sickness, sometimes you have sick, and say, "Did I sin?" Oh, might not have been you sinned, but you remember, the sicknesses visit up... the iniquities of the parents upon the children, and the children's children, and their children, on to the third and fourth generation. See? And it's just a wearing down, wearing out of the human bodies, and sin piling up, and so forth. Like venereal, and so forth, it visits on down."
(HE.SWORE.BY.HIMSELF/ JEFF.IN V-26 N-11 1954-1212)
"Just think. What caused every sickness, every heartache, every death, every trouble, every sorrow, this little spastic child, all these things, cripples, blind, every hospital to be built? Because one person just misbelieved one little part of the Word. That was Eve. Satan just coated it to her, not quoted, but coated it to her, said, "Surely the Lord's too good..."
You hear so much today about being God being a good God. He is a good God. But remember, He's a God of holiness, a God that cannot overlook sin. The penalty has been paid for, and you've got to accept it on His grounds. And remember, He's a God of anger, a God of wrath. And you'll stand before an angry God, not just a God of goodness and mercy. Tonight He's your Saviour. That day He's your Judge. So be sure that you don't leave one thing undone, friend. It--it won't... It don't pay. Don't--don't just haphazardly go at it. Be sure, double sure, 'cause you don't get another chance. This is your only chance while you're here on earth."
(VOICE.OF.THE.SIGN/ DENHAM.SP.LA 1964-0321E)
"You couldn't kill a--a dog, hit it in the head and kill it, without killing its foot also. See? You'd have to kill the rest of its body. So the head of it is sin, and all this weary and sickness and all attributes, even death itself, is all wrapped up caused by sin. Man didn't have to die, didn't have to be sick. He didn't have to weary, didn't have to shift for himself. Everything come after the fall."
(AT.THY.WORD.LORD/ JOHNSON.CITY.NY 1954-1207)
"What is the word sin? Sin is unbelief. Jesus said in Saint John the 4th chapter, "He that believeth not is condemned already." You don't have to do anything; you're condemned already. Now, drinking, committing adultery, and that, that's not sin. You do that because you're an unbeliever. You're an unbeliever to begin with. That's the reason you do those things.
Now, if you once get right with Christ, those things will just--they're circumcised at the altar. When God--when you confess it, God just takes it away, puts the Life of Himself in there. And then you're in Christ and you can't come to judgment.
Jesus said in Saint John 5:24, "He that heareth My Words and believeth on Him that sent Me has Everlasting Life, and shall never come into judgment, but's already passed from death unto Life." He can't bring you to judgment; you're already judged. And when the Holy Spirit comes back to make you live this different life, with God's seal of His circumcision on your heart to prove that you've been--stop your drinking, smoking, gambling, cursing, unbelieving, and not believing in Divine healing, and the works of God, and has received God. And it's a Seal that everybody knows about it from now on."
