Jesus heals Blind Bartimaeus – Sermon preached by brother Branham

Jesus heals Blind Bartimaeus

You know there’s something about getting alone to yourself. Many people never pray until they come to church. Many people thinks that the only place to pray is at church, but the Bible said for men to pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands.

And then when we get by yourself, we’ll usually pray different than what we would if we prayed in church. It’s the secret prayer that Jesus spoke of, saying, “Enter ye into a secret closet, and close the door, and when you have did so, pray to your Father Who sees in secret; and He that seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.”


And when we’re praying like that, there seems to be something to the prayer that takes all the hypocrisy out of it. It seems like that we get in a better connection with God, to get alone. And there’s been many times in my life, as perhaps in your life, that you just have to get alone once in a while with Jesus.

Mark 10:46-52 King James Version (KJV)

46 And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho with his disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging.

47 And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me.

48 And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, Thou son of David, have mercy on me.

49 And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee.

50 And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus.

51 And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight.

52 And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.

Now, THE SAME GOD,

THAT’S CONVINCED YOU

THAT YOU’RE WRONG,

IS THERE

TO MAKE IT RIGHT

WITH YOU.

Let US BOW OUR HEADS NOW,

CONSTANTLY,

and PRAY.

JUST TALK TO HIM NOW,

IN YOUR OWN WAY.

IF YOU CAN DO NO MORE THAN

JUST LIKE THIS PUBLICAN

that SMOTE HIMSELF

ON HIS BREAST,

said, “GOD, BE MERCIFUL

TO ME,

A SINNER.”

THAT’S ALL

HE HAD TO SAY;

GOD KNOWED

THE REST OF IT.

And HE WENT HOME,

JUSTIFIED.

MAY YOU GO

LIKEWISE,

TONIGHT,

SAFE FROM THE STORM.

OUR HEAVENLY FATHER,

THESE FEW MIXED-UP

and DIVIDED WORDS,

JUST AS I SAY THEM,

THEY WENT FORTH.

And I PRAY THAT,

SOMEHOW,

LIKE THE LITTLE BOY’S

REPEATING THE ALPHABET,

SAID IT’S THE ONLY THING

HE KNOWED TO DO,

“YOU KNOWED ALL THE WORDS,

and YOU COULD PUT THE LETTERS

TOGETHER.”

YOU SEEN

THE SIMPLICITY

OF HIS HEART.

GOD, LOOK DOWN

UPON MY POOR HEART

TONIGHT,

and SEE THE SIMPLENESS

OF MY HEART.

And THE MESSAGE

WAS MEANT,

LORD,

IN LOVE

and SWEETNESS,

FOR THE PEOPLE,

THAT THEY MIGHT

FIND THIS REST

THAT YOU HAVE GIVEN ME

and THOUSANDS OF OTHERS,

THAT THEY MIGHT KNOW

JESUS,

THE ONLY SAVIOUR

OF THEIR SOUL,

THAT HE

MIGHT LEAD THEM

TO OUR FATHER, GOD,

and THERE THEY WOULD BE

SAFELY TUCKED

INTO HIS BOSOM,

THROUGH HIS RIVEN SIDE,

and ACCEPT HIM,

and BE FREE

FROM JUDGEMENT.
