THE ANGEL COMES WHEN I AM FASTING AND PRAYING

13  And so therefore, friends, as a—as your brother, that’s all I am. But God’s gift is the Spirit of God that came down in the form of an Angel. Now, He didn’t have wings. He looked like a man. I heard Him when He walked [Brother Branham illustrates—Ed.], just as that, and walked on the floor. Walked right over, just as normal as any man, and talks just like any man. He comes, time after time, through the room and different places when I’m fasting and praying.

GOD GIVES DIVINE DIRECTION WHEN WE PRAY AND FAST

She come over there and said, “Brother Branham,” said, “I followed meeting after meeting trying to get my brother in the line. I couldn’t do it.” Said, “His heart’s got so bad now it’s pushed through the diaphragm.” Said, “We was examined a few days ago before coming, doctor said he just has a little while to live. We sold our cow to get the money to come up here from Texas.” Said, “I’ve been to several meetings; we sold all we got.” Said, “I seen I couldn’t get it, there’s too many there. I’ve had a card several times, but the number’s never been called.” She said, “But I was praying last night all night and fasting,” (she said), “and about daylight this morning I woke up, and I had a dream. And I dreamed that I should come down here to the cafeteria and wait at nine o’clock.”

I looked at my watch, and it just exactly nine. Said, “Bring him here.”

You know what happened, don’t you? The Lord marvelously healed him. Leading of the Spirit. He works on both ends.

And I’m very happy to—to have that this afternoon.
