( Notes and Excerpts from Dr. Bill Branham's Messages)
"Now, if there's something hanging over you, sin, and you don't confess that, you could anoint that person, pray for them, do everything you want to do, it'll... Satan will stay right there as long as you got unconfessed sin in your life. Or some times something that you haven't done, something you neglect to do. And in there God reveals it if there's anything wrong. Then you make that right; your healing is complete."
(DO.YOU.NOW.BELIEVE?/ OWENSBORO.KY 1953-1106)
"How can God save you, unless you take His medicine? How can He heal you, 'less you take the medicine?
As I said, "Heart troubles not the number one, sin trouble." And what is sin? Sin is not smoking cigarettes; sin is not committing adultery. Sin is not drinking, swearing. That's the attributes of sin. There's only one sin; that's unbelief. Any man, if he lives as holy, and pious, and as good as he could be, and yet say that the days of miracles is past, and deny the Scripture saying, "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever," that man is a sinner, because he's an unbeliever.
(WHY?/ PHOENIX.AZ 1960-0309)
"And there's only one unbelief. Let's keep that in our mind. There's only one sin. Now drinking, gambling, committing adultery, using profanity; that isn't sin. That's the attributes of unbelief. Jesus said, "He that believeth not is condemned already."
In the days of our Lord, He found many men who lived holy lives--clean, respectable gentlemen. And they were scholars, masterpieces of scholarship. And yet, He said to them, "You are of your father, the devil," because they did not believe Him. See? The message, they did not believe. That made them unbelievers. He could not help them. In His own country there was many He could not help, because of unbelief. So He could not save you in unbelief, neither can He heal you in unbelief. You... It's just as simple as, "Just believe it."
(JESUS.CHRIST.SAME/ GRAND.PRAIRIE.AL 61-0516A)
"Reason we get many out calls from these services, so called healing services. You get down there in the line, watch that discernment, reach down and find that thing till it finds the cause of it. When you find the cause... "Here's what it is: you're doing this; you're doing that." Immoral living and things, people coming to the platform... You've seen it in the meetings, haven't you? Raise your hands if you've seen the Holy Spirit discern those things and call them sins out: men are living untrue to their wives, and things like that. Has it ever failed? It's always the truth. You've got--you could pour oil on their heads, and stomp and holler, and have shivers and chills, and everything else, that devil will lay right there, as long as he's got a right to stay there, until you confess that sin and make it right and let the Holy Ghost come in. Hallelujah. Back to Pentecost.
"Is there no balm in Gilead? is there no physician there?" Sure, there is. But the people don't want the medicine; they don't want God's toxine; that's all. Oh, yes, they--they--there's balm in Gilead and there's a physician there, but the people don't want to listen to the physician, uh-huh. Afraid of the new birth... "BALM.IN.GILEAD/ LONG.BEACH.CA 1961-0218)
"Notice. Now, "He that sins willfully..." Now, sin is bottled to this. There's two elements. One of them is faith. The other one is unbelief. And unbelief is sin. That's the only sin there is, is unbelief. Think of it. Unbelief... Jesus said in Mat... Saint John 3, He said: "He that believeth not is condemned already." See? You don't have a chance. Now, there's no halfway Christians. You're either a believer or not a believer.
Now, that's belief. What is belief? What is faith? "Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Now, if you believe, you live the life of righteousness. If you do not believe, you can live a halfway life, or hypocrisy, in other words playing the hypocrite. Or you can--or you can make believe, pretend you are. But if you're really a believer, God has made a way that you'll know you're a believer. Now, Jesus said Himself, "These signs shall follow them that believe; In My Name they shall cast out evil spirits, heal the sick," (Mark 16|17-18) and so forth."
(LAW.title CHICAGO.IL 55-0115)
"He was wounded for your transgressions; with His stripes you were healed. There's no man on earth that can heal you, no doctor, no hospital, no medicine. We haven't got one medicine that any doctor will say will heal you. If he does, he certainly doesn't know what he's talking about.
To heal is to replace or build tissue. No medicine will build tissue. Medicine will take germs and kill germs that's tearing down tissue, but it won't build the tissue. God has to do that alone, which is creation.
He's the only One Who can create. Satan cannot create. He can pervert what's created, but he can't create. God is the only Healer there is.
There never was a drop of medicine, hospital, or operation that ever healed anybody. The Bible said, "I'm the Lord Who heals all your diseases." Medicine's all right. They take it to poison germs, just like rat poison to poison rats. But it doesn't heal the house where the rats has eats holes in it. You see? That's right. It doesn't patch the place. God has to do that through creation.
Operation is fine. It moves an obstruction, bad tooth, a growth, appendix, so forth. That's all right. It sets a broken arm when it's broke. That's all right. But God does the healing. See? God's the only One can heal. It's nothing, no mystery. It's just true."
(QUEEN.OF.SHEBA.title CHICAGO.IL 58-0107)
"Well, that's the same way with preaching Divine healing or anything else. As you go along, you begin to learn. If you don't learn, there's something wrong. See? You've got to learn, and you've got to learn how to accept God and what it really means.
We allow it, sometimes say, "Well, this guy didn't have enough faith; this guy didn't do this and this. There's a reason there for that; there's a reason. Sometime it's unconfessed sin. You could pour a gallon of oil on a person, and scream till you got hoarse; it would never move that devil. No, sir. You've got to confess that. That's what discernment does, say, "Go make that right; bring that out."
(WORKS.IS.FAITH.EXPRESSED/ SHREVEPORT.LA V-7 N-1 1965-1126)
"And when confessed sin is confessed and been dipped into the... A man or woman that's been dipped into the Blood of Jesus Christ, it kills all symptoms, and every molecule of sin goes back to the devil and laid on him till the day of judgment where his eternal destination will be throwed into a lake of fire; and the chasm is bridged and never to come into remembrance no more. And a man stands justified as a son of God: simplicity."
(GOD.IN.SIMPLICITY.title JEFF.IN 63-0317M)
"Now, I don't mean that He made one atonement for your sickness and one for your sins; He made one atonement, and that was for sin. And when you deal with sin, you've got to deal with every attribute of sin.
The human race, as we're taught in the Scripture, didn't have any sickness before sin came in. And then when sin came in, it... Sickness was issued in as a attribute of sin, which had to bring death. Sin is death. And sickness follows sin. Worry, follows sin. Did you ever notice what a horrible thing worry is? There's not one value in it at all. "
(WHEN.THEIR.EYES.WERE.OPENED.title SPINDALE.NC 1956-0420)
"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.title CHATAUQUA.OH 59-0811)
"And the Bible said, that He's the High Priest that can be touched by the feeling of our infirmity. Now, you people out there without prayer cards, now let's just take something, and say now while we're praying, you just say, "Oh, great High Priest, Jesus Christ, my Lord and Saviour..." If there's any sin in your life, confess it, get it out.
And you in the prayer line, do the same thing, because be it well assured it'll be called out right here. See? If you're anything wrong, that you don't want called out here on the platform, step out of the line. 'Cause how many knows that? Yes, sir, it'll be called right here. So get it under the Blood (See?) so, and--and just say, "Forgive me of my--of my sin and help me to believe You. And I'm sick, Lord, and I want to be well for Your glory." See, God doesn't heal just to be healing. See? No. He does it for the glory of God. And we must confess our sins and our unbelief.
And look at the father that brought the child with the epilepsy, that the disciples could not cure. Jesus said, "I can, if you believe."
He said, "Lord, I believe. Help my unbelief." See? He--he--he cried out 'cause he was in need."
(SIGN.OF.THIS.TIME.title NY.NY V-18 N-8 63-1113)
"And the same way it is by Divine healing. When a man comes to Christ upon the basis of believing the shed Blood of Christ was for his healing, "By His stripes we are healed," and accepts it, until something happens in his heart, that says, "It's so. I'm going to be well."...
I'm telling you, there's no way at all to keep them from getting well. They're going to be well. That's right. You don't have to tell a person to quit sinning after he's been born again. It just absolutely stops itself. Well, the same thing it is. You don't tell the people, "Now, keep on holding on," that... After they're healed, they just... Something happens inside of them. And it's not an outside in; it's an inside out. It happens in here first. You absolutely believe it. And then from there out, it goes to work. And then I've seen it happen so spontaneously that it caused outstanding miracles."
(GOD.HATH.A.PROVIDED.WAY.title JEFF.IN 56-0108)
"Now, Father, we bring Your Word. You said, "He that believeth on Me has Everlasting Life. He that cometh to Me I will in nowise cast out. He that heareth My words and believeth on Him that sent Me has Eternal Life, and shall not come to the judgment but's passed from death unto Life."
Oh, make our requests known to God, and He will answer us. He's abundantly... "He that will confess his sins shall have pardon. He that hides his sin shall not prosper." And we confess our wrongs. I confess the wrongs of the people. I confess my own wrongs. I ask for mercy. I ask for healing. I ask for grace. I ask that You'll pour out the Holy Ghost, Lord, right now upon these waiting people, that their lives will be changed in the molding block of God, and will be shaped in the image of the Son of God, that the Spirit that quickened Him, that will come into their body and make them sons and daughters of God. Grant it, Lord.
We believe that You are present. We believe that You'll honor Your Word. We believe You'll honor the efforts of the work. Now, send these blessings upon these people as they're waiting for Your Presence to visit them here at the altar, in Jesus' Name.
(EVENING.MESSENGER.title MESA.AZ V-8 N-5 63-0116)
"Many of them understood Him. The common people heard Him gladly. And it's a great deal that way today. But I've noticed the peoples; all denominations almost attend the meetings. We even have the Orthodox, the Jews, Greek, Catholic, and all types. But God never respects any different denomination; He just respects the faith that's in the individual. "I can, if ye believe," He said.
And then He said, "Go and sin no more, or a worse thing come upon you." So therefore, in order to obtain your healing, you'll have to become a Christian after you're healed. And I believe, I would say this, talking of the dual atonement, when you are healed, your sins are forgiven you. I didn't hear very many amens on that, but it's the truth. "Confess your faults one to another, and pray ye one for another, that you may be healed."
(GOD.IN.HIS.PEOPLE.title LITTLE.ROCK.AR 50-0227)
"Now, I want everyone else, have your heads bowed. Listen close now to your instructions. If you don't, you're just taking a walk. See? Now remember, if God will let me know the conditions and so forth, and you believe that. And now just take my word; you've got to believe that this settles it. If it doesn't, it might make you worse (See?); settle everything. If you've got sin in your life, step out of the line and confess it. And don't come in the line till you're prayed through. And if you're going to use your life for something besides the glory of God, don't come in the line. See? If you're ready to make a dedication to Christ, fully surrendered, and fully persuaded that this is Jesus Christ, this great Holy Spirit here; and that you're going to receive your healing when you pass through this line, no matter whether you feel different, or what, you're going to be persistent to hold right onto God's promise until the victory comes, like that woman that we talked about. Do you feel that way, audience? If you do, raise up your hand, say, "I accept that." I don't see no reason for anybody going out of here sick tonight."
