II CHRONICLES 7:14
"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."
"And the LORD will take away from thee all sickness, and will put none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which thou knowest, upon thee."
"And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I [am] the LORD that healeth thee."
"And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people."
"How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: Who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with Him."
"And when He had called unto Him His twelve disciples, He gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease."
But he [was] wounded for our transgressions, [he was] bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace [was] upon him; and with his stripes we are healed."
( Notes and Excerpts from Dr. Bill Branham's Messages)
"Now, there's no one can heal. Healing is a finished product of God. If any man tells you that he can heal you, if he's a doctor and can tell you he can heal you, he's wrong. Where there's only one Healer, that's God. A doctor can give medicine; he can put medicine in a sore to kill the germs in it, so it'll get well. What does happen? The--the medicine doesn't heal. The medicine only keeps the bad germs down, kills the bad germs that kill the good germs, that kill you. So science works on different poisons that they put into your system to poison certain germs that won't poison you. That's what science does. That's what medicine is, is something that'll kill a certain germ and it won't kill you. These antibiotics kill both to a great big extent. So therefore they--that's the reason they're hard to take. Like penicillin, sometimes it kills a person.
Now, a doctor can move an obstruction. He can put a bone together, but he can't heal. God's the One Who does the healing. God produces the calcium. God produces the--the multiplication of the cells to build your body back, where they've moved appendix or something like that. God is the only Healer."
(FAITH/ JEFF.IN 1957-1229)
"There's one Healer; that's God. God is the only One Who can build cells, make life; therefore, it's not in the power of man to do that. A doctor can set a bone, or give you medicine to poison germs, that he put so much in it, and an antidote to keep it from killing you, and kill the germ and so forth. He can do that. But the tissue that's been torn down, or bone that's been broken, the appendicitis that's been taken out, the appendix, he cannot heal that. It takes God. God heals. Man can remove a--a something that's causing it, if it's possible to move that organ, he can cut it out, and cut off the blood veins and pull that, or that tissue out, that's a wild cell, like tumor, cancer, or something. If he can get ahold of it, he can remove that. But to heal, he cannot, and he'll tell you that.
And, now, healing is of God alone. God alone has purchased for us our healing. It's up to us to do everything that we can, in our life, and in every way that God has give us, for our healing, but it's God that heals. If God calls you to go home tonight, there isn't enough medicine in the world to keep you here. There's nothing going to keep you here. And if He determines you to stay on the earth, no matter how many physicians says you're going tonight, you're not going. So it's just all up to God."
(SIRS.WE.WOULD.SEE.JESUS/ DALLAS.TX V-19 N-8 1964-0304)
"The doctor can set an arm where it's broke, but he can't heal it. The doctor can pull out a tooth, but he can't heal where it come out of. He can cut out an appendix, but who's going to heal? See, there's no medicine that will build cells. Cells is--is growth (See?), and nothing can heal that. No one can. And to have growth is a multiplication of cells, which is creation. And there's one Creator: that's God. See? And He has to knit that place together, put that bone together. The doctor can set it but (You see?), they have to... It takes calcium, potash, and so forth, to go into that bone to mend it together.
Now, if I was cranking my car out here, or fooling with it and broke my arm, and I run into a doctor, and said, "Doc, you're a healer. Heal my arm right quick. I want to finish my car."
He'd say, "You need mental healing boy." That's right.
"Well, if you're a healer, heal my arm." He's not a healer. See?
He'd say, "I can set your arm. God has to heal it."
So then (See?), the Scripture's always right. "I'm the Lord Who heals all of thy diseases." That's right. We're thankful for hospitals, and medicine, and so forth. They aid nature, but they do not heal. No, they're not healers. God's the Healer. The Scriptures cannot lie. See? "
(GREATER.THAN.SOLOMON.IS.HERE/ PORT.ALBERNI.BC 62-0725)
"Divine healing lays in Calvary. And the only thing that you can do is point to Calvary. And there's where your salvation lays. You wasn't saved just five years ago, ten years ago, or twenty years ago, or how long it was. You wasn't saved then. See? You were saved nineteen hundred years ago. When Jesus died at Calvary, He took the sins of the world away. You just accepted your salvation so many years ago. But everything that God can do for both sickness and sin has already been appropriated in Calvary. And the only thing that a minister can do, is to point you to where... what God has already did for you in Christ. Do you understand it?
A man could come to the altar; he could pray all night. He could cry, he could beg, he could plead, walk up-and-down the floors, make restitutions. But until he believed and accepted, he'd still be a sinner. For Hebrews 3 said, "Jesus Christ is the High Priest of our confession," profession, the same translation is confession. He's the High Priest of our confession, therefore, He can't do nothing for us, until first, we confess that He has done it. And then He goes to work as a high Priest, making good what we profess, that He has done. What... And He will make good anything that He included in His atonement. And there He was: "Wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquity, the chastisement of our peace upon Him; with His stripes we were healed."
Not, we will be, or we ought to have been, but we were, passed tense, already healed. God did it back there in Calvary, and the only thing we do, is reach up and receive it by faith, and believe it, confess it.
God... When man was made and put here on earth, we find out that he was made not to sin. He was made a perfect man. Sin's what caused the fall. And now, he's in a two-fold aspect. He is, one, he is spirit. Next, he's material. One, he's heavenly, a son of God. The next, he's a creature of destination. And he's got to be gone back to the dust on the account of the fall. And Jesus came to redeem that man.
Now, I want you to notice. Sickness and sin is so closely associated together, that it's almost like the soul and body. It's inseparable. Man's got to die. His soul is full of sin, and his body is full of sickness, and death is pronounced on him. He's got to go. His soul is sick and his body is sick.
And Jesus come to redeem both of them (That's right.), not just one. His soul... He came to bring complete redemption. And we only have the earnest of our complete salvation now. If there is no Divine healing now, there's no resurrection of the body. That's correctly."
(LIFE.IS.THE.HEALER/ INDIANAPOLIS.IN 57-0611)
"And, same goes by Divine healing, that we believe that Divine healing is something that Christ purchased for us at Calvary. It's a finished product of God, and only thing we do, is to receive it by faith, believe it. That's the reason we call it "healed by faith," because that's what it is. Therefore, it could not be in a individual, any person have something another that would heal another person.
Frankly, there's nothing that can heal you outside of God. "I'm the Lord that heals all thy diseases." The Scripture is infallible and cannot be broken. So therefore, medicine doesn't claim to heal. Medicine... We're not against medicine. Medicine is of the Lord. But medicine cannot heal. Medicine only can--can assist nature in God's Divine plan of healing. There never was a medicine ever healed anyone. There's no doctor will tell you that."
(WE.WOULD.SEE.JESUS/ BLOOMINGTON.IL 61-0409)
"And I believe that healing is a finished work, that's been completed for two thousand years. When Jesus died at Calvary, He saved you from sin and healed your sickness. And every blessing, redemptive blessing is yours by faith in that finished work. See? It's yours if you can believe it.
As one said some time ago, "I don't believe in Divine healing. I don't care what you say."
I said, "Certainly not. It wasn't given to unbelievers; it was me--given to believers. He that believeth..." There is a question mark. If you're a believer, Divine healing is for you. If you're not a believer, it's not for you.
And each person in here that's sick does not have to come to this platform. They do not have to do one thing but confess their sins to God. Sin is unbelief; we all know that. Because you smoke, drink, gamble, commit adultery; that's not sin; that's the attributes of your unbelief. See? It's because you don't believe Jesus is the reason you do those things, if you do. But if you believe Him, you don't do those things, is because you are a believer. So there's only one initial sin, and that's unbelief. And if you believe God, then you can just accept it anywhere you may be. God is everywhere."
(IT.IS.I.BE.NOT.AFRAID/ CHATAUQUA.OH 1959-0811)
"Now, we call the people to the platform. I cannot heal anyone. No other man can heal. No medicine can heal. No doctor can heal. No hospital can heal. I want to talk to the doctor that can heal. I want to talk to any man that can heal. He's wrong. If I broke my arm, and run into a doctor's office, said, "Heal my hand right quick, doc. I want to finish cranking my car." He'd say you need mental healing. He can set the bone, but God has to heal, for God is the only Creator.
A doctor can move an obstruction, appendix, or a tumor, or something. But God has to heal. A doctor can pull a tooth. God has to stop the blood and develop cells. He's the only Healer.
You say, "What about penicillin for a bad cold." That's like rat poison in the house. You got a bunch of rats; you put out some rat poison. They're eating up the house, holes in the house. Now, the rat poison doesn't patch the holes; it kills the rats. And that's what penicillin does, kills the flu germs. And God has to develop the cells and life back again. He's the only Healer. He said, Psalms 103:3, "I'm the Lord Who heal all your diseases." If there's any other healing, God told something wrong."
(HEAR.YE.HIM /WATERLOO.IA 58-0126)
"When the brass serpent was lifted up in the wilderness, it was for a--an ensign, that God said whosoever looks upon the serpent, believing, will be healed of their snakebite, and the snakebite was caused because they had murmured against Moses and God: sinned.
And God made an atonement for sin. And in there their sickness was an attribute of their sin. You see it? The snakebite that was killing the people was an attribute of the sin that they had committed. And when God made them an atonement for their sin, it brought in the attribute--their healing. See what I mean? When Jesus atoned for sin, He atoned for sickness. "He was wounded for our transgressions, and with His stripes we are healed." The apostle said, "By whose stripes we were (past tense, already) healed." It's already done; the--the price was paid."
(WILL.I.FIND.FAITH.WHEN.I.RETURN.title LA.CA 51-0508)
"Now, if Jesus was here, could He heal you in your unbelief? Can anything be done for your healing but what's already been done? Not a thing. I--I haven't got nothing in me that would heal you. There isn't a thing. Brother Jackson, much as he's prayed for the sick too, there's nothing you could heal, is there, Brother Jackson? Not a thing. None of you ministers that pray for the sick, not a thing... The only thing that you can do is point them to Jesus where He has already healed them. See? He's healed them.
Now, no one... what... None of these ministers here, they couldn't say they'd save you. They can't save you but they can point you to where your salvation was purchased nineteen hundred years ago on Calvary. You just accept it. Jesus settled it with the Father for salvation when He, when He died at Calvary. Is that right? That--that settled it. The whole world is forgiven of sin; but it won't do you any good 'till you accept it tonight. And if every person was healed, but it won't do you any good 'till you accept it. Then we, as ministers, preach the word. And faith cometh by hearing, and hearing what? The Word of God. And then, after all that, that ought to be enough, doesn't it? But after all that, then God come down and set in the church gifts."
(PRAYER.LINE/ TALLAHASSEE.FL 53-0215)
"How can you preach the Gospel of salvation, and then deny Divine healing has more than I ever could understand. Jesus died at Calvary; every sin was settled. The only thing you do now is look and live. Believe It. He was wounded for our transgression, with His stripes you were healed.
If I had power to heal anybody, I certainly would do it. I sure would. I know what is means to be sick. I have no power to heal. No other man does. If he does, then what happened to Calvary.
God cannot do anything twice. By His stripes you were healed. The only... If He stood here tonight with this suit that He gave me, He could do not one thing toward your healing unless you believed it. He proved it in the Scriptures. "Many mighty works He could no do, because of their unbelief." It's the same tonight. He's same yesterday, today, and forever. But those who believe, could."
( QUEEN.OF.SHEBA.title LA.CA 59-0405E)
"Now, there's not a medicine in the world can heal you. Now, remember that. There's no medicine, no doctor, no clinic, ever healed one person. All healing comes from God. Could you hear that? All healing is from God. I believe that God's Word is so infallible that there is not one iota of It that's wrong. Psalms 103:3 said, "I'm the Lord Who heals all your diseases." If there could be anything else heal you besides God, then God told something wrong."
( JESUS.CHRIST.THE.SAME /HARRISONBURG.VA 58-0312)
"If there was a way for me to make the sick well, I would certainly do it. I would be glad to do it. I have no power to heal. I don't believe anyone else does. Men... I don't believe a doctor does. I believe healing lays in God. A doctor has a right. He can move something, or pull a tooth, sew up something, take appendix out, or an abscess or whatever it might be. But he doesn't build tissue; neither does medicine. Nature, God does that. That's right. All from God... You break your arm. Go to the doctor and let him set it, but he doesn't heal it. He just sets it. God does the healing; He heals it. He furnishes the calcium and whatever goes into the bones to--to heal it."
WE.WOULD.SEE.JESUS.title KLAMATH.FALLS.OR 60-0708
"I do not believe that there's any man on earth that has power to heal anybody. I don't believe there's a medicine on earth that has power to heal anyone. I don't believe there's an honest doctor that would ever tell you that his medicine would heal you. If he does, he certainly is wrong. There's only one healing; that's God.
Our foundation is the Bible. We believe the Bible to be the infallible Word of the living God. And we believe that everything that's done must come from the Bible. All teaching must be based on the Bible."
JESUS.CHRIST.THE.SAME.title MIDDLETOWN.OH 58-0323
"Now, look, to heal a person, I couldn't do it, or no one else can. Jesus could not heal no one except first they believed that He was. And there was no virtue in Him unless they believed there was virtue in Him.
Some people one time, they wanted some curiosity. They tied a rag around His face, and they hit Him on the head with a reed, said, "Now, if You're a prophet, prophesy and say who hit You." He never even opened His mouth and said a word. He didn't clown for nobody. No, He was the Son of God.
But a poor little humble woman, who really believed Him, and had a blood issue, she slipped through the crowd and touched His garment, and He said, "Virtue has gone out of Me."
It's the attitude of approach. And when you're coming tonight, how can you hear except it be a preacher, and how can a preacher preach 'less he be sent?
Now, the--I want you to realize that the--my main reason here now, is to introduce to you a phenomenon of God."
( WILL.I.FIND.FAITH.WHEN.I.RETURN.title LA.CA 51-0508)
"He said, "Certainly." And if that doctor didn't explain it exactly the way I've explained it about my hand being cut, that it don't build tissue, medicine... We--we think medicine's wonderful. And we would not say don't use it, because it's something... Just like I wouldn't say, "Don't use soap to wash your hands." It's a chemical, but after all, medicine doesn't heal. Medicine just keeps clean, while God does the healing. You can't set your arm, and... Doctor can't come in and set your arm and say, "Now, it's healed." He just sets your arm, and go away and let God heal it for you. That's the only way it can be done.
Well, now, that's the same way it is by taking medicine. But medicine's all right. It's all right to get your arm set if you break it. But God has to do the healing.
Well, now, this is... This healing, you must have faith. It's called faith healing. And this doctor said, "Well, there's such a thing as miracles." He said, "And I've seen it many times." He was noted surgeon. He said, "Many times," he said, "now when you come to bloodless cults who say that some man does it or--or something like Unitarians, and so forth," said, "I simply wouldn't put my hands on that." But said, "I do believe and know, that the Blood of Jesus Christ is all-sufficient to heal any sickness." See?
Now, it comes through Christ. Healing comes from Christ alone. And it all comes... If your conversion... Now, I've seen people who pretended, say, "Well, I'm going to turn a new page over. It's new year; I'm going to try to do a little better this year than I did last year." But you find out it don't work. And so is people who take their healing haphazardly like that. It doesn't work; it doesn't last. But when a man or a woman comes to Christ with a full surrendered heart and believes, until they're absolutely something changes inside of them, that person has Life Eternal. "
(GOD.HATH.A.PROVIDED.WAY/ JEFF.IN 56-0108)
"Now, what is faith? Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things you do not see, taste, feel, smell, or hear. You believe it. Your body has five senses; none of them senses contact God. God give you them five senses to contact your earthly home, here on earth.
But you contact God by faith. That's the... This great mechanical age that we live in, people's got--has got it scientifically prove it. Like Moses, if he was standing there at the bush... What if he'd been a modern man today and the bush was on fire? What if he said, "Now, wait a minute; I'm going to take this bush, some leaves off of it; and I'm going down to the laboratory to give a chemical test and find out why them leaves didn't burn and got fire on them." See?
In those days, when a miracle was done they took a man's word for it and went on. Because they knowed it was supernatural. But today they got to run it through the scientific test. And you can't prove God by scientific tests. God is believed. And you know Him by faith. "
(WHEN.THEIR.EYES.WERE.OPENED/ SPINDALE.NC 1956-0420)
"One by one you might pass the platform, God would tell you everything that's wrong. You know what's wrong with you. Let's settle it just now. I want you to lay your hands over on each other, if you will, for the healing of your body. I want you to repeat this prayer. You pray it and as I repeat it. Now, I'll just repeat it, you pray.
Almighty God, the Author of Life, Giver of every good gift, look down upon me now in mercy. See my sickness and my conditions, and look into my heart, Lord. And if there be any unbelief, O God, take it from me now. Say, "I believe Thee. Help Thou my unbelief." I now am coming with a sincere heart to accept my healing. Now, may my faith be sufficient to receive it. In Jesus Christ's Name I ask it.
Now, just remain with your heads bowed. Everybody praying, no matter what's wrong with you now. Now, just don't raise your head. Keep your eyes closed. Just imagine what Jesus is doing right now, the Holy Spirit wooing over you, His mercies and power coming into your body right now making you well. The Angels of God are hovering around you.
Now, that demon of unbelief, that's the only thing that would keep you from being healed. Now, as God's servant, I'm going to ask him to leave this building. I'm going to ask him to get out of every person and to go out, and then when I ask him to go out, you believe he has gone, and then give God praise for it and your sickness will start leaving you right then. You'll get well."
(LIVING.JESUS.CHRIST / CHICAGO.IL 53-0906E)
"If you say you're a Christian and believe it all along, God will bring... Your testimony will bring you right into it. If you believe in healing, and believe that God has healed you, confess it, and God will make your body obey your confession, for He's the High Priest of your confession; setting at the right-hand of the Father now with His own Blood to make intercessions for any confession upon anything that He died for.
And He died to rid sin. And sickness is the result of sin. "He was wounded for our transgressions, with His stripes we are healed." Remember that. Have faith. Don't waiver. Stand on it."
(ATTITUDE.AND.WHO.IS.GOD?/ CLEVELAND.OH 50-0815)
"Remember, I say, "That healing is something that has already taken place." Every person in here has been healed for nineteen hundred years and something, since Christ died. See? And every sinner in here has been saved that long too. But it'll never do you no good till you accept Him as your personal Saviour. See?
He settled the sin question when He died. He settled the "sick" question when He died. But it's our individual faith in that blessing that He redeemed us to, brought us out of the world to receive this blessing. Or maybe I'd make it like this: it is our personal faith in something He has already done for us. And when we receive that, we are healed the minute we believe it. If I could stand here tonight and say, "Jesus Christ healed you everyone, nineteen hundred years ago; by His stripes you were healed."

"Satan cannot create life. He can only pervert what God has created. Satan has no way...?... There's only one Creator, that's God. Satan couldn't heal; medicine couldn't heal. There's nothing else can heal but God, 'cause He's the only Creator. And anybody that's intelligent would know enough to know that there is not a medicine, or a drug, or nothing in the world that can create life. God is the only solemn One can in creation alone, for He said, "I am the Lord that healeth all of thy diseases."

"And then in the wilderness with the children of Israel on their march, coming from the Egypt to the promised land, and they had... God promising to supply all their needs, what they had need of... And then when the time come that they were sick and dying, and all the remedies of Egypt, all the medicine, the wisdom of the Egyptians, none of their roots, and herbs, couldn't heal this sickness, then the way... When Moses cried to God in a crisis, then the action that God taken to Moses, He's got to take the same action every time that same crisis arrives. Why, if He didn't, He done wrong when He did it back there. Then God's guilty (See?), so He has to act the same way when the same crisis... 'Cause if He acted that way, it was perfect, and He cannot act any other way but perfect each time. It has to be perfect. Amen. You see?
His actions, His words, His thoughts, everything comes from one pure unadulterated stream of perfection. Now, when He puts your faith back like that, healing becomes simple. God already spoke it. If He said, "I'm the Lord that healeth all of thy diseases." That settles it for eternity: has to be. When He speaks it, He can't take it back. He can't say, "Well, I made a mistake." 'Cause He's perfect. There can't be a mistake from eternity to eternity. He's pure forever.
Oh, my. When He said, "I will," that settles it. "Ask and you shall receive," that settles it. "Ask the Father anything in My Name, I'll do it." That settles it; that's forever. The word is expressed.

"I was talking to a--one of the finest doctors there is in the southern states, in his office not long ago, a very fine specialist in Louisville, a real gallant man. And I said to him; I said, "Doctor, I want to ask you a question."
He said, "All right."
I said, "I noticed your medical sign, the staff, you got a serpent wrapped around a pole. What does that stand for?"
He said, "I don't know."
And I said, "It stands for this: It was a symbol of Divine healing where Moses lifted up the brass serpent in the wilderness (See?), which was only a symbol, only a symbol of the true Christ." Now, today, medicine is a symbol of Divine healing. And though many of them don't believe it (real good doctors do believe it), but some of them don't believe it, but their very emblem that they hold up testifies to the power of Almighty God whether they want to believe it or not. That's right. There's a brass serpent hanging on a pole on the medical emblem." (SEVENTH.SEAL.THE / JEFF.IN 63-0324E)
"Now, I can look at wheat, here laying on my hand; I recognize it's wheat. I can say that it's wheat. I can show it to the ground, and if the ground could look, it'd say, "Yep, that's wheat. I believe it's wheat, every word of it." But that wheat can never produce wheat, until this wheat falls into the ground and dies itself. Is that right?
That's the man looking, fundamentally, saying, "Yes, I believe healing. I believe it's right. I believe it's the Word of God. I believe it's for the believer. And I believe that I got faith to receive it." But until you receive it... Get what I mean? Then when you receive it, you rejoice. The Word's in there; it's settled; all doubts is dead; all the husk is dropped off; and new life has sprung up, growing into healing for yourself. That's when you really get your healing. That's where healing comes from. Faith cometh by hearing, hearing of the Word.
Now, faith is not healing. Faith produces healing. See? By faith, are you saved. Now look, if here was a loaf of bread that cost a quarter. I believe that's about the price of it. And I had twenty-five cents. Now, twenty-five cents is the purchasing price of the bread, but I've got the twenty-five cents, but haven't got the bread.
Now, you can have faith for healing, and I believe many of you have. But you can't receive healing until you purchase healing, by the faith that you have. You say, "Oh, Brother Branham, I wished I had the Holy Ghost. I got faith that I'll get it." Well then, just swap your faith for the Holy Ghost. See? That's all you have to do. When you got that faith, nothing can take it away from you. Now, if you're just making believe, you're--if you impersonating, if you're putting on, it won't work for you. But if it's real faith, it's--it's over. God will do it right then. You believe that? And when you say, "Oh, yes, Brother Branham, I believe in Divine healing." All right, if you believe in Divine healing, then take that same faith that you got in Divine healing and purchase your healing. See? And you that receive it by the faith... Sure."
(GOD'S.PROVIDED.WAY.OF.HEALING.title CHICAGO.IL 54-0719A)
"And when a believer is placed in Christ Jesus, you're planted in there in the inexhaustible Fountain of Life, and the more you drink, the more you push out. That's right. If you can't believe... "Well, I believe that Jesus saves me." That's good. Then how about the Holy Ghost? Believe He'd give you the Holy Ghost; He promised it to you. About Divine healing, believe it; He promised it to you. Every redemptive blessing belongs to you; just drink, and drink, and push out. That's all. Everything you have need of is right in you.
When you receive the Holy Ghost, everything you've got need of between here and glory is right in you then. It ain't faith that you need. You've got faith, if you got the Holy Spirit, for He is your faith. But the thing you have to know, is know how to use that faith. See what I mean? And if you'll just understand how to use it, which we'll try to, this coming week to explain it, you'll see the exceedingly, abundantly above all that you could do, or--or think of the Lord."

"Now, the last commission Jesus gave to His church was, "Go ye into all the world, preach the Gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved. He that believeth not shall be damned. These signs shall follow them that believe: In My Name they shall cast out devils (You believe that?), cast out devils."
Then what happened if the life left that tumor? We'll call it a tumor or cancer. It's the greatest killer. Now, if the life leaves that cancer, immediately, what happens when the life leaves you? For the first day or so, your body shrinks.
How many hunters is there in here, hunts deer and animals? All right. Now, you kill a deer today, and you say, or a butcher or whatever you want to be, even a undertaker... See? You say, "This body laid on the scale, it weighs two hundred and fifty pounds." Be careful what you tell the boys now, when you weigh it in the morning. It'll be pounds lighter. You know that, don't you? It'll shrink a great percent overnight. The human body does the same. Any body of cells does the same, because it's dying out. Now, then let it lay there for just about three or four days in the sun. Then pick it up.
Let a little dog get run over on the street, and let him lay there for three or four days in that hot sun. Watch what happens. He will be twice his size almost. Then he's heavier than he ever was.
Now, like a man, when this spirit... See, we're not dealing with that growth. That's what the doctor deals with. The doctor deals with what he can feeled or what he can see. Two of his five senses he can work with: that is his feeling or his seeing. Now, he feels the growth; he operates; he looks at it, and takes it out. Now, if there's a piece of root left, it just keeps on growing. See?
Now, we don't deal with that growth at all in Divine healing. We deal with the life that's in that growth, the devil itself, that life. Then when that life comes out, immediately or a few hours, the patient begins to get relief, feeling fine, go testifying. Usually after about three or four days, I'm gone from the city. See?
Well then, the Bible says, "That when the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walks in dry places." He brings back seven devils worse than he was; and if the good man of the house isn't there to protect, that demon will come right in again, and the last estate of that man would be eight times what it was at the beginning. See? He'd have seven more different things. Now, we got to believe that, 'cause God said that, and that's His Word. We just have to work on our message from that (See?) that that's truth, because it's God's Word.
Now, if the people run right in it, and maybe having three night's meeting, people run right in and get prayed for. "Oh, I got healed; I feel so much better." Got up off of the cot, walked home, about three or fo--about seventy-two hours, corruption sets in, and mortification begins to swell, then say, "Oh, I lost my healing. Oh, I--I lost my healing." That's the best sign in the world, you got your healing. See? That's the sign you've got it, not lost it. And little simple things like that the church has to be taught. See? To know how to take a hold. Don't you let no unbelieving, as soon as you say, "Oh, I lost it," that quick, Satan returns again. That's right. Then you're worse than you ever were. See?"

"And when you hear anyone say Satan can heal, he's wrong.
Only God can create. Satan cannot create. He can only pervert what has been created. There's only one omnipresent. Satan cannot be omnipresent. God alone is omnipresent, omnipotent, infinite.
And no medicine can create cells to heal. There's doctors that can cut out old cells; there's ones that can straighten arms, or set arms, or pull extractions of the tooth; but there's no one, no powers in all the earth and all hell that can create cells outside of Almighty God. "I am the Lord that heals all your diseases." How can he... How childish, juvenile, that even great intellectuals can be when they get away from the Word of God."
(WHAT.DOES.TAKE.MAKE.CHRISTIAN.LIFE.title CHICAGO.IL 57-0113.)
"Not that I have anything against any denomination, because that I see that God's no respect of person. He heals the Methodist, Baptist, Catholic, Pentecost and all. God don't respect your church affiliation; He expects your faith, respects your faith in Him. He doesn't even... and healing, you don't even have to be a Christian to be healed. But in order to stay healed, you have to become a Christian. "Go ye and sin no more, or worse thing than this will come upon you." So you...
I see many times the callused saints come through the prayer line, men and women who's lived godly, and fail to be healed, when prostitutes on the street would come through the line and be healed. It depends on your faith."
( GOD.IN.HIS.PEOPLE.title LITTLE.ROCK.AR 50-0227)
"Psalms 103:3, "I'm the Lord Who heals all your diseases." Doctors take their own medicine and die. God's the Healer. So, healing, as far as God was concerned, when Jesus died at Calvary, "He was wounded for our transgressions; with his stripes we were healed."
