Jesus said, “No one can come to ME unless My Father draws him.”
I had prayed for Georgie, but she had not healed.
But when God told me to go, there was nothing that could have held me back!
The people said that if Branham, the HOLY ROLLER PREACHER heals Georgie, THEY’D BELIEVE.
But that was lie. If they haven’t believed by the PREACHING of the Word, THEY’LL NOT BELIEVE!
Maybe they’re ON THE UNBELIEVER’S SIDE, ORDAINED NOT TO BELIEVE.
Her parents witnessed her miraculous healing of TB, but they say the devil did it. That’s past redemption!

W M B ~ Now, look what prayer does. Prayer changed from death to life.
God had said, “The man’s going to die.” And I believe Isaiah told the truth.
He was borned a prophet, and his words were true and came from God.
And then HEZEKIAH’S PRAYER CHANGED THE OPINION OF GOD.
Oh, my. I like that. PRAYER CHANGES THINGS. It’s the MOST POWERFUL FORCE that God ever put in the hands of man, is a sincere prayer offered to God.
Jesus said, “WHATEVER YOU ASK THE FATHER IN MY NAME, THAT I’LL DO.” Believe it. Try it once, and see if it isn’t true.
Just remember a little case… Just—I’ve only… It’s really time right now, but you’ll pardon me just a moment. I just come home off of that revival, just comes to my mind. Happened just below here.
And I was going away to Erie, Pennsylvania. My pal, Brother Baxter, and all of us were going up there for a meeting: have a few meetings up in Ohio, Toledo.
And maybe some of you here might’ve been from Toledo meeting and up in… That’s where I was at.
And now, when I got home, a Baptist preacher, the pastor of the Milltown Baptist Church, Brother Hall…
Now, Brother Wood, I see you laughing, ’cause I know you know him, and you know the case.
Brother Beeler, you do too. Fine man, one of my converts, was ordained, and is a Baptist minister of the Milltown Baptist Church, Milltown, Indiana, where a little girl had been healed, belonged to the Church of Christ, that wanted to run me out of the city.
Miss Georgie Carter… Write to her. Go down and see her; it’s not very far: two hour’s drive.
And she’d been laying for nine years. You can see her doctor, any of them you want to, the neighborhood.
And all the neighborhood said, “LET THAT HOLY ROLLER PREACHER COME DOWN, HEAL HER. THEN WE’LL BELIEVE.”
That’s just a lie of the devil. IF YOU WON’T BELIEVE BY THE PREACHING OF THE GOSPEL, YOU WON’T BELIEVE ANYHOW.
You were maybe ORDAINED NOT TO BELIEVE. You may be ON THE UNBELIEVER’S SIDE.
But they said, “If that girl could be healed…”
Well, the father and mother, the father was a deacon in the church, and they said if any of the church members ever went to one of my meetings, they just might as well get their papers and leave the church, ’cause that was all. They didn’t believe it was right; it was of the devil.
So, well, finally the little girl cried so hard, till I went down one afternoon. The mother and father left the room, WOULDN’T EVEN COME IN, nothing.
I went and had prayer for her and went on out. The poor little thing cried so hard that day; she said, “If she could get healed, she’d believed that she could be healed…” I looked at the… The other day…
Did you ever see her bed there? Have you ever been in the room there that where she was, on the rounds of the bed where she’d put her little hands back until she couldn’t raise her hands this way no more; and she—she had pulled all the paint off the bed.
And she weighed around thirty-seven pounds. She was twenty-six years old. And been laying there for nine years and eight months without moving off her back.
Excuse this expression, they couldn’t put her on a bedpan; they had a rubber sheet; just pulled a draw sheet. Her limbs up here were approximately about that big around. And I never seen…
You ought to see her picture. And when she’d go to spit in the sputum cup, she’d go, “Uh, uh, uh.” And they’d have to raise the cup up. And that’s the way it was. She hadn’t seen the trees or nothing.
And her mother, a fairly young woman, in her early fifties, had turned completely gray and stricken with palsey, setting for nine years watching her baby die, without a hope.
It started into the throat, went down through the chest, into the female organs, and through her: TB. They’d give her up five years before that.
And I went out to baptize. And SOME METHODIST BROTHER (And I’m not saying this in any harm to you.)—but HE MADE FUN OF IMMERSING, and I’D BEEN BAPTIZING OVER THERE AT TOTTEN FORD, baptizing by immersing.
And he’d had a revival out there, and he said, “Them Baptists ain’t nothing but…” just, I FORGET WHAT HE CALLED ME.
And so, when HIS CONVERTS WAS STANDING ON THE BANK, I walked out into the river to baptize, and God, my Judge, EVERY ONE OF HIS CONVERTS walked right out with their good clothes on, was baptized that afternoon. Isn’t that right? That’s right. Mr. Smith, Reverend Mr. Smith, the Methodist church.
So, I went up to Mr. Wright’s to have dinner. And it’s way in the country in the hills. And so I said, “Something tells me to go over in the woods and pray.”
And so Brother Wright said, “Now, when you hear Ma ringing the bell,” said, “it’s time to come for dinner.”
I said, “All right.” And the evening sun was setting. And so, when I went over there, and I knelt down to pray, and the stickers begin to stick me (You know?): greenbriers. And I got up and moved over a little farther, and chips was so hard on my knees, I couldn’t pray.
Be careful when them things happening. IT’S THE DEVIL. God’s trying to do something right then, when YOU SEE THE FIGHT COMING ON.
So I just got—just threw up my hands, and I begin weeping. I said, “Lord, have mercy. I don’t know what…” And I GOT LOST IN PRAYER; I didn’t know how long I was praying.
And I could hear that bell ringing, but I couldn’t get to myself. And just caught away. Now, after they—they done put the—sent out search parties over through the woods hunting for me, and it was a…
Standing there with my hands up, I happened to look through a little dogwood bush, and here was THIS SAME LIGHT, hanging up there in that dogwood bush; and a LIGHT shining down through it, AND A VOICE said, “Go by the way of Carter’s for THUS SAITH THE LORD, she’s going to be healed.”
I didn’t… I rose up real quick. I started running down through the woods, and I jumped over a little fence, and right into the arms of Brother Wright.
He said, “Brother Branham,” said, “Mother’s got supper on the table.” Said, “It’s…”
“Why,” I said, “I…”
“We don’t know where you… What’s been the matter?”
I said, “We can’t eat now, Brother Wright, for the Lord is going to heal little Georgie Carter.”
Said, “When did—she’s going to be healed?”
“Just as soon as we get there, for I JUST MET THE ANGEL of the Lord there in that dogwood bush and He told me to go by the way of Carter’s.”
And he said, “Will you…” And a fellow by the name of Mr. Brace had just brought his wife from Texas. He said, “Brother Branham, can I go with you and see it done?”
I said, “You’re welcome.” So we got in, and in the same time, her mother… I’ll give her—her address, and I want each one of you to write and see in her own testimony. Or go down and see her: just a little way. Ask through the city and everywhere. See?
And so on the road down, why, her mother… The little girl had been so weeping so, that she wanted to come and be baptized that afternoon.
BUT I’D PRAYED FOR HER, BUT SHE HADN’T BEEN HEALED.
And so I’d—I… On the road ’fore I got there, her mother said, she just couldn’t stand to see the little girl cry.
So she went into the other room and she knelt. Now, here’s her testimony. I can’t—I can only repeat her words.
Said she went in and knelt down and raised up her hands. She said, “Lord God, we’ve served You reverent over here in this church; my husband, a deacon; and I’ve done all that I know how to do.”
And said, “THAT IMPOSTOR, WILLIAM BRANHAM, HAS COME THROUGH here and got my little girl all stirred up, and there she lays dying; and there she is all stirred up about this Divine healing thing.”
Said, “Lord, why You let a person like that live?”
And SHE, JUST SAYING HORRIBLE THINGS.
And said, “Why did he come through here to do this, and what have I ever done to cause this?”
Now, HERE’S WHAT SHE SAID. She opened her eyes while in prayer, and her daughter (They live in a lovely big home there.)…
And so her daughter from the next door, she thought was coming over; she seen the shadow, the sun coming through the window on the wall, and she thought it was her daughter.
But when she looked, it wasn’t. It was SOMEONE WITH A ROBE ON, with BEARD HANGING DOWN. He said, “Who’s that coming?” And said she looked over here, and SHE SEEN ME COMING
︎with my Bible over my heart, like this, the high forehead here, and walking like that,
︎and TWO MEN FOLLOWING ME.
And said—she said, “Oh, I—I must’ve went to sleep. I—I—I—I was DREAMING.”
And she run in and said, “Georgie…”
She said, “What, mother?”
She said, “I—I—I… Something’s happening.” She said, “I was out there praying, and—and I—I—I—I DREAMED OR SOMETHING.”
Said, “I thought I seen JESUS coming and HE POINTED ME OVER TO …”
And just about that time she heard a door slam, and there I WAS GETTING OUT OF THE CAR.
GOD WORKS ON BOTH ENDS of the line:
︎Bible over the heart.
︎Them two men, Mr. Wright and Mr. Hall—or Mr. Brace following me, coming up the steps.
And the mother fainted. The little girl, I don’t know how I ever got in the door, opened the door, walked over to where she was.
Brother, I don’t care how many demons would be present, whatever would be there, God has done spoken, and nothing can change it. His Words are true, they’re for everlasting, from everlasting true.
There laid A LITTLE BELIEVER lay there IN THE MIDST OF PERSECUTION and everything, still with HER LITTLE HEART CENTERED ON GOD, believing yet.
And in prayer, WASN’T MY PRAYER; IT WAS HER PRAYER.
I walked over to the bed. I said, “Sister Carter, the Lord Jesus in Whom you’ve trusted all these years has sent His Angel out yonder in the woods and has told me to come down at—and lay my hands upon you that you might be made well.”
I said, “Therefore, take no thought of how you shall do it, but in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, rise up.”
How was she going to do it with legs that big, had never moved off the bed in nine years and eight months?
And God, Who is my solemn Judge, in five minutes from then was out in the yard, walking around, blessing the trees and blessing the grass, perfectly normal and well.
AND HERE COME THE BAPTIST PREACHER FROM…
Here come her FATHER, came down the road, coming from his barn, packing a little milk. And he heard… His MOTHER had come to theirself and they were screaming, and crying, and carrying on.
They didn’t know what had happened. He thought the little girl might’ve died, so he hurried real quick. He rushed into the front door, THE CRITIC, MAKING FUN …
What did he find? His little daughter setting at the organ playing:
Jesus keep me near the cross,
There’s a precious fountain,
Free for all a healing stream,
Flows from Calvary’s fountain.
He’s fainted in the floor, dropped his milk can and his… They was working with the mother out in the room and all screaming.
Why, they had the whole city out there in a few moments.
BUT DID THEY TURN TO CHRIST? No!
SHE IS MY PIANO PLAYER IN THE MILLTOWN BAPTIST CHURCH TONIGHT. That’s been about six years ago. Never been to bed with as much as a bad cold since. Nine years and eight months without moving off the bed.
Brother, still they live in unbelief down in there. They say, “Aw, the devil done it.” That’s past redemption.
The Angel Of The Lord
