[Taken from a tract published by Oster.

I

EV. JOHN G. PATON, former-

“R ly a Presbyterian pastor in

London was, for many years, a mis-

sionary to the New Hebrides Islands.

I heard him, many years ago, tell this

thrilling story, with many others.

“The natives in large numbers sur-

rounded his mission one night; intending

to burn them out and kill them. Rev. Pat-

on and his wife prayed all night long,

while in !error and suspense, cat God

would deliver them. As day hght np

peared, the natives all left them and they

thanked God and lay down to rest.

“A year later the Chief of these natives

was converted and one day he asked Rev.

Paton if he remembered the time they

came to burn the mission and kill ,him.

Rev. Paton said, ‘Yes.’ The Chief th6n

asked hLirn,”Who were all those men yozr

had with you therep’ Rev. Paton ap18w6r-

ered, ‘There was no one with us; just mg

wife and myself.‘ ‘Yes, there wua,’ the

Chief replied, ‘there were hundreds of big

haen in shining garments, with .drawn

&words ia their hands, all around the mis-

sion and we were afraid of them and

could do aothing.’ Then Rev. Paton told

him, ‘God sent His angels to protect UQ.’

‘I surely believe it,’ said !he Chief.”

(Psalms 91; Daniel 6:2R; II Ktngs 6:17).

We have the protection of God, through

angels, as His children. If we could real-

ize how the Angel of the Lord encampeth

round about us, certainly we would have

Iess fear. All through Bible times, through

modern times, God has proved His love

and protection over His children, through

the ministry and care of angels.

I BRONCHO SAVES CHILD

I FROM IMMINENT DANGER

IN DECEMBER of 1915 my Mother

died of T.B. I was seventeen at the

time.

s The Great War was raging, and I

took a man’s place behind four horses

in Manitoba, working side by side

with my brother on the land, farm-

ing one and one-quarter sections.

Across the road from our farm build-

ings was a school section of land. We

turned our horses out on it for exerclse,

sixteen of them, feeling their winters rest

and oats.

My slim little blue-eyed sister was with

me at the barn where I was flllmg the

mangers with hay. Suddenly we heard

the horses coming. Polly said, “I’m gohg

to the house before they get here: they’re

so wild,” and off she ran.

Over a small hill by the barn the were

coming, squealing, kicking, ga170phg.

Then Polly stopped running. She saw she

couldn’t make it. She was between them

and the well. I shouted, “You run and I‘ll

pray.” I prayed as I had never prayed be-

fore, then I was reminded of our chestnut

broncho who had lost her colt that spring

and how she fought to protect it as it

lay on the ground, if an animal came

near it. “Oh God,“ I prayed, “Send Jenny

to protect her.” I looked to see where

Jenny was and there, away at the back,

trotting leisurely along, was Jenny taking

her time.

Suddenly her ears came forward, she

held her head high, and saw the running

child. With a leap she bounced forward,

and soon passed two-thirds of the horses.

Then she used teeth and heels, until she

gat between the horses and child. She’d

run to the child, then wheel on both hind

feet, switch her tail fiercely, and bite the

nearest horse. She stayed right by the

child until she was up on the porch. Then

she turned and trotted proudly across for

a drink. It seemed to me when Jenny

switched her tail so hard some of the

hairs would sting the child, but not one

hair touched her, nor her feet, when she‘d

wheel so very close to the child.

Surely our God can use anything He

has made, to save anything He has made,

for He is Almighty. I thanked Him many

times for that wonderful deed+

CHURCH THEOLOGIAN

,HEALED OF TUMOR

ICHARD BAXTER of the seven-

teenth century, one of the

church’s greatest theologians, a man

of unusual spiritual power, revealed

his faith in Divine healing in his fa-

mous classic, “THE SAINTS EVERLAST-

ING REST.” In that book he tells of his

own marvelous healing of a visible tumor.

“1 am persuaded that there Is scarcely

a godly experienced Christian that cam

fully observes and faithfully recordeth

God’s providences toward him, but is able

to show you some strange and unusual

mercies. which may plainly discover an

Almighty Disposer. making good the

promises of the Scriptures to His serv-

ants; some in desperate disease of body,

some in apparent dangers delivered so

suddenly or so much against the common

course of nature, when all the best rem.

edies have failed, that no second cause

could have any hand in their deliverance.

I know that man’s atheism and infidelity

will never want somewhat to say against

the most eminent providences, though

they were miracles themselves, but will

ascribe alI to fortune or nature, or some

such idol, which indeed is nothing.

“How many times have I known the

prayer of faith to save the sick when all

physicians have given them up for dead.

It has been my own case once, twice, or

ten times, when all means had failed, I

have been relieved by the prevalency of

prayer. Among the abundant of instances

I cou/d give, my conscience commandeth

me here to give this one, as belonging to

the very words here written.

“I had a tumor rise on one of my ton-

sils or almonds of my throat. The fear

lest it should prove a cancer troubled me

more than the thing itself. I first used

dissolving medicines, for about a quarter

of a year. At last my conscience smote

me for silencing so many former deliver-

ances that I had had in answer to prayer.

I was to preach that morning just what

is here written and, in obedience to m

conscience, I spoke these wrds whicg

are now here on this page, Viz:

How many times have I known the

prayer of faith to save the sick when all

physicians have given them up as dead-

with some enlargements not written here.

When I went to Church I had my tumor

as before {for I frequently saw it in the

glass and felt it constantly). As soon.as

1 had done preaching, I feIt it was gone,

and hasting to the glass, I saw that there

was not the least mark where it had been,

nor did I discern what had become of it.

I am sure I neither swallowed it nor spit

it out, and it was unlikely to dissolve by

any natural cause, that which had been

hard as a bone a quarter of a year.

I thought fit to mention this, because

it was done just as I spoke the words

here written on this page.

Many such marvelous mercies I have

received in answer to prayer.”

NAVY COMMANDER ItlllS

CANCER BY PRAYERS

By A. E. Hotchner

(The following story is interesting be-

cause the full report was carried in the

Reader‘s Digest, considered the world’s

greatest magazane, Nowember. 1951.)

HE NAVY perhaps means more

T to Lt. Commander Edwin Miller

Rosenberg than to any other seafar-

ing man now in service. Even as a

small boy in Idaho, Rosenberg wanted to

go to Annapolis and become an officer

in the Navy. He finally managed to get

his Congressman to recommend him for

an appointment.

One morning Rosenberg was stricken

with a violent stomach ache, and ran a

temperature of 104 degrees. Later, he had

another attack and was entered into the

Chelsea Naval Hospital in Boston, and

was told he had cancer of the kidney and

would live only two weeks.

Later, the doctor came to ask Rosen-

berg if he would like legal help in draw.

ing up his will. When the doctor left his

room, Bosenberg, a devout Lutheran, be-

gan to pray. He contiiued to live past hi

allotted two weeks and, in three months,

the 16miracle” was achieved. The doctors

marveled at the X-ray plates which

showed that the malignant tumor had dis-

appeared.

Later, the doctors found another can-

cer-in his neck. They sent him home to

spend his last days with his family.

Rosenberg prayed as never before, and

again in 1947, he waa declared okay.

Rosenberg stated, “When the newspa-

pers carried the sto of recovery, I re-

ceived mountains ofyetters from people

all over the world. They begged me to

give them the cancer cure I had used. I

wrote every one of them: ’Believe in

yourself, and in the Lord: that is the

cue, if you want to call it that.’

When I was in the Brooklyn Naval Hos-

pital, I talked to hundreds who came into

the wards ready to die. I asked them if

they knew how to pray and, if they didn’t,

I prayed with them and helped them to

learn. There was that mornmg at Chelsea

when the doctor suggested I send for a

lawyer to settle my affairs. If I had sent

for a lawyer, I’m sure that I would be

dead today.

“Prayer is a force as real 11s ter-

restrial gravity. As a physician, I have

seen men. after all ot;her therapy had

failed. lifted out of disease and meb

ancholy by the serene effort of pray

er. Only in prayer do we achieve that

compIete and harmonious assembly

of body, mind and spirit which gives

the frail human its unshakable

strength.” Dr. Alexis Carrel

“Lt. Commander Rosenberg‘s story is

an inspiring one and should give much

hope and comfort to those who are simi-

larIy afflicted.

“We of the Navy are particularly proud

of the eoic ,battle which Lt. Cmdr. Rosen-

berg w&ed to defeat his illness.”-

Secretary of the Navy.

PRAYER SERVICE

PRAYEEi DEPARTMENT

OPENS FOR NEEDY

OR THE PAST several years THE

F VOICE OF HEALING has sent

out thousands of anointed handker-

chiefs to the sick. Many wonderful

testimonies have been, received, of

which we have published only a few. Hith-

erto we have never made mention of this

service in the pages of the magazine but

so great has seemed the need in this re-

spect that we are now formally opening a

Prayer Department,

This service will be entirely free, al-

though free-will offerings will be received

to defray the expenses of the Department

that handles this mail. The only thing

that we ask is that the individual will be

willing to believe God himself and serve

Him with all his heart.

Every letter will be read, therefore we

ask that the need be stated simply and

not at too great length. You are to send

a hbdlrerchief in the letter, enclosing a

stamped self-addressed envelo e, and this

will be prayed over persondy by Evan-

gelist L. D. Hall or the Editor. Also, ar-

rangements are being made whereby each

day evxy evangelist in TVH will, at a

certain time, agree in faith for the de-

liverance of that individual.

Your handkerchief will then be returned

to you, with instructions on how it is to be

used.

When you receive your healing, be ~ure

to write us and give God the glory!

GOD-INSPIRING FAITH

Dear TVH Editors:

Thank you very much for the letter

with the anointed cloth in it and all the

inspiring words you wrote about healing

for me, and for all prayers you offered.

I must now send a few words telling

you how much I appreciate your kind-

ness. Believe me, Brother, this is the first

time in life I have received such a won-

derfuI gift without any charge. I have

been accustomed to pay for everything,

so you can understand how surprised I

was when I received this prayer-cloth

free, God bless you!

Now I must tell you something that

happened when I put the cloth on my

body, as you said, and laid hold of God’s

promises. A sudden change immediately

took place in my heart and I felt a great

relief in my body. However, the most

INFECTIONS CLEAR

Dear TVH Editors :

Greetings in Jesus Name!

I praise and +ank God for your pray

ers and the anointed cloth that you sent

me about March 8th.

When I discovered a lump on my left

breast, about the size of a half dollar,

I immediately wrote you for prayer and

the anointed cloth. As soon as I received

it, I placed it on my breast, in the name

of Jesus, believing that God would heal

me. The lump gradually became smaller

each day then completely disappeared.

Praise His Dear Name!

I am also healed of an infection which

I had for one year and four month,s,

I give Him the praise!

In My Life”

Bv W. V. Grant

d

Wallowing are a few sketches from

Evangelist W. V. GranPs boo?, “THE

GRACE OF GOD IN MY LIFE.

It is written i% Aorne-spun English, but

it reveals how God took a country boy,

saved him from a life of sin and has given

him a ministry that has resulted in

tlzousands of conversions. Multitudes have

also received the Baptism of the Holy

Ghost and have been. healed under Brother

Granfs ministry.]

THERE WERE a few things that

I wanted to. do before I got

saved. I wanted “to get” a certain

school teacher who had whipped me

unmercifully with a stiff limb. I intended

to “bump off” a guy who had

stolen a gun and had given me so

much trouble. I intended to kill a

neighbor’s mule because he had killed

our mule; and, of course, there were

a few places I wanted to go before I

changed my way of living.

I began to pray, but determined that

no one should know that I was under conviction

until I was saved. I had an impression

to tell Mama, but I was ashamed.

Every time I would start to pray, I would

hear someone coming and look up to And

no one,

I began to feel that I was the meanest

man in all the world. Among the mean

things which came up before me was a

picture of myself in the back of churches

laughing and making fun. I thought of

how I mocked those who had testified. At

last I made up my mind to go to .the altar,

during a large revival campaign of

about five thousand people. I knelt down

and began to pray. I can still hear those

prayers of the neighbors and kinfolks, as

they surrounded me in that sawdust.

As I unloaded, I got to where 1,could

lift one hand at a time and then laft my

head before that large crowd. I then unloaded

all my sins, and my feet were so

light that it seemed I was just touching

the floor now and then. I felt as light as

a feather, instead of as heavy as a bale

of cotton.

* * *

JESUS HEALED ME

I was prayed for to be healed the night

I received the Holy Ghost, but the next

morning I could see no difference in my

physical condition. As I was praying, in

the bottom of a dry branch near the corn

patch, I opened Mama’s Bible and Exodus

15:26 seemed to leap out above all the

rect of the verses, just for me. I did not

know that it was in the Bible before. The

verse said that if I would obey- God, I

was healed. The devil said no one could

obey God, but that I would die. I told

him it would be a short route to glory.

God then sent a peace into my soul which

drove out all fear, doubt,. worry and un-

belef. I threw my rnedwzne down. I did

not know how,.but I believed that I could

go 0% wathout at. About two weeks passed

before I could tell a great deal of differ-

ence; but somehow God heIped me to live.

In two months I had gained twenty-five

pounds; in six months forty pounds. Up

until then, my stomach had felt as dead

as a piece of wood, but now it was alive.

I began clearing land for seventy-five

cents a ten-hour day.

My uncle had the same trouble I had

had. I wrote hlm such a long letter that

he had to pay extra postage to get It.

However, he did not believe me. He died

soon thereafter.

After Jesus healed me, I could plow

all day and could walk from jour to jour-

teen miles to and from church each night.

Previously I was not able to stay up until

nine o’clock one night each week. It

seemed -that I was now living in a new

world among new people.

* * *

THE LORD WILL GUIDE

After I was saved and filled with the

Spirit, the Lord began teaching me to

trust Him for guidance, even in the httle

details of life. One night I was riding

Old Lidge, a twenty-five-year-old, barebacked,

tough-mouthed, stubborn mule

through those mountain roads, which all

looked alike, when I lost .my way to a

cottage prayer meeting. After trying a

long time to keep him from going home,

I decided to just turn him loose and pray.

Old Lidge turned off each road just right

and carried me to the door of the prayermeeting,

stopping at the gate. If God can

guide a naule. we should not be more stubborn

than OZd Lidge.

I was determined to pray three‘ times

each day as Daniel did, and I prayed for

God to let me go through something as

Job did, so I could show Him how I loved

Him by trusting Him. I prayed for hours

at a time with my face in the leaves, pinestraw

or the cotton-seed. God saved many

of the roughest boys in that country. One

lady-told me that she did not approve’ of

her boy running with me, after I had

helped him get saved and filled with the

Spirit. She said she wanted him to make

a mark in the world. He joined the army

and was lost in battle after he backslid.

SAW FIRST “HEALING CAMPAIGY

Sometime after I had been called to

the ministry and was pastoring a church,

I heard that several of my members and

some other neighbors were going to

Shreveport, Louisiana, to a “Healer.” 1

will admit that something within me re.

belled against the thought. One ot them

gave me a magazine called “THE. VOICE

OF HEALING” which was publwhed in

Shreveport. After I read this I saw no

one claimed to be a “HEALER.” I chang-

ed my mind and told them I believed I

would go along with them. I felt im-

pressed of the Lord to carry otherc who

needed healing.

There I saw Brother and Sister Gor-

don Lindsay and Brother Hall and a girls’

trio for my first time. I was amazed as I

saw the results that took place in tha:

“Healing Campaign.” It seemed ldce Bc

ble Days were here again. The only fault

I could find was they were doing many

times as much as I was. Then when I saw

the group who responded to the altar-

call my heart cried out, “That is just

what the world needs today!” People were

there from far and near. I stepped to the

phone and told my wife I would not be

home as early as I had planned. But I

stayed and observed this, and realized

that it was what my heart had always

cried out for.

I went back happy because my mem-

bers received marvelous healings. It would

have been so easy for me to get up and

preach against ’‘HEALERS’’ the next Sun-

day morning. But I am so glad I went and

found it to be just what I had been try-

ing to do, but on a much larger scale. It

is better to get a hundred souls saved

than one.

From that day the desire to 8tay thew

and toil for weeks to get two or three

saved left me. I decided that I would stay

‘Ln my room and pray two hours each

morning and two hours each afternoon.

“FASTING AND PRAYER”

Up to that time I had been against Iong

fasts, and I am yet, unless God leads in

that direction. I had never fasted over

four days. After getting a preacher to

take care of my church, I shut myseli up

in a room and fasted the number of days

that God directed.

On the laat day of t.he fmt, the V0+6

of the Lord spoke plainly to me. I unll

not tell you what it said, but you can read

it in Nark 16:17-18. It is so real when

God speaks a verse direct to you. I would

not take a thousand worlds for that ex.

perience. It was somethinE I had been

waiting on to happen for seventeen years

as I prayed and waited. It was just what

I believed always, even .before I was

saved. I have had no new revelation.

I did not know exactly all that God

had done for me at that tpme until later.

Immedaately, I saw people healed of heart

trouble, camer, arthritis, and several

things. People were delivered from whis-

key and cigarettes surprising the neigh-

bors. The Sunday School went to twice as

much as it was when we came there, and

people came for miles to be prayed for.

Several were delivered from the hospitals.

One night God gave me a vision about

my future connection with “THE VOICE

OF HEALING’ Magazine, even giving

me the new address which they now have.

No one knew about it then, as far as I

know.

Brings Spiritual Blessings

to Monroe, Louisiana

By L. 4). Waldon

Chairman, Campaign Committee

OD HAS marvelously poured out

G His Spirit on Monroe, Louisiana,

for the last four weeks in the Grant

Revival, under the Big Gospel tent.

Groups of hungry people came down

the sawdust trails each night seeking

God, some nights as many as two hun

dred.

At every service, people have recelved

definite experiences with God, caving

from many surrounding commumties,

towns, denominations, c h u r c h e s , and

states. It is impossible to know the exact

number that tarried into the wee hours

of the nights who were saved and filled

with the Holy Ghost. They were saved

and filled in the isles, standing around

the pulpit. kneeling in the tent, in the

prayer room, in the prayer-tent, during

the service before preaching, and in the

healing lines. Several old people who had

never been ‘saved before surrendered to

God. This revival has helped churches for

miles away. Each night we witnessed as

much happening as in many whole re-

vivals elsewhere.

Fifty.& (561 people stood one night

testifying that they had been healed an

the audience. without hands laid on them.

According to testimonies given, some of

the ailments which disappeared instantly

were scums over the eye balls, burst ear

drums, growths, cancers, stifP joints,

goiters, tumors, total deaf ears, cist, en-

larged heart, arthritis, rheumatism, T. B.,

etc. Crutches, hearing aids, eye glasses,

braces, casts, trusses, and such are not

needed any more.

Several deaf mutes were healed so com-

pletely they could hear a watch tick.

Sense of smell was restored which had

been gone for’many years. A girl who

had never breathed through her nose was

healed instantly. A girl with polio, who

was wearing braces from her hip down

and could not walk, came back walking.

Several who could not walk are now

walking.

This revival has brought persecution,

even large head lines in the paper, but

a great revival spirit to the churches,

with people praying through in the reg

ular service of every cooperating church.

comes!

“Signs and wonders were the talk

of the day.” “The lame walk, the deaf

hear, and the sick are made whole!”

These reports were talked of in the

factory, on the bus, in the office, as

well as in the churches. This was the

greatest move of God I have ever wit-

nessed, declared by many to be the

greatest revival this area has ever

known.

God ordered the services, and Gifts

of the Spirit were manifest, so that men

declared, ‘THIS IS GOD.’ We felt we were

living the Book of Acts over in 1952.

The sick came by hundreds, and great

numbers went away declaring their heal-

ing. Testimonies are still coming in.

Crowds thronged the altar nightly for

salvation, and deliverance from demons

and habits.

HAYES MINISTRY ATTAINS .

NEW HEIGHTS IN DALLAS

VANGELIST ALTON L. HAYES

E held one of the most fruitful and

outstanding revivals for us last November

in the history of our church.

As Pastor, I feel qualified to say his

meeting did more to revive our people

than any previous one. It was well attended,

in spite of the fact that the State Fair

was on at the time. This is significant because

the church is located just one-half

mile from the grounds where the fair is

held, and a traffic problem figures in. By

actual count, more new people attended

this revival than any three previous ones

combined.

Souls were saved, baptized with the

Holy Spirit, and many miracles of healing

wrought by the power of God; among

them were the uncrossing of eyes, demon

powers cast out, diabetics healed, ulcerat!

sd stomachs, tumors and other afflictions

are gone.

Since that revival, our church has been

moving on, every Department of the work

shows growth, and a fresh quickening. A

more pronounced revival spirit never prevailed

in our church.

Therefore, it again affords us great

pleasure to have the Second Salvation-Divine

Healing Campaign, conducted by

EvangelistpHayes and his party, in our

assembly n-early one year later.

From the beginning of the meeting, on

Tuesday night, September 23, the Divine

tence in each service furnish the source

of power to effect “loosing the bands of

wickedness, undoing heavy burdens, and

to let the oppressed go free, and break

ing every yoke.” (Isa. 58:6)

Outstanding miracles, many healings

and deliverances continue to be wrought

by the hand of God through this faithfuI

servant.

Through the anointed ministry of Bro-

ther Hayes, physical and spiritual bar-

riers, and maladies are discerned; in some

instances the actual length of their ex.

istence is revealed. Then follows the re-

lease from their fetters and yokes of the

oppressed, which proves a marvel to be-

hold.

h-ight after night the tidal waves of

glory rise to crescive heights, and God

continues to confirm His Word with signs

following. The humility and sincerity of

this man of God, coupled with his com-

passion for the needy impresses the hearts

of ‘all, and his ministry will always re-

main, as a blessing, to all who ,have heard

him.

The attendance and interest is gratC

lying. Extra accommodations were re-

quired after the first few nights and we

are now planning to secure a larger build-

ing to house the services.

We sincerely believe this revival cam-

paign and the ministry of Brother Hayes

has proven prodigious and most bene-

REV. RUSSELL PARK

MIGHTY IMPACT FELT

IN SHERMAN, TEXAS

By Rev. .C. R. Dale

Revival Chairman

HE DOORS of, the big city audi-

Ttorium in Spearman, Texas, are

closed and the crowds are gone, but

the revival spirit and new born souls

remain as evidence of the greatest

union revival of Full Gospel people

since the early day of Pentecost in

the Panhandle of Texas.

The Full Gospel churches ob the Pan-

handle were looking forward to the re-

vival with keen anticipation and .’they

were not disappointed as night after

night Bro. Park brought fearless authori-

tative messages, under the mighty anoint-

ing power of the Holy Ghost.

People from every church in the city

came, numbers were saved and filled with

the Holy Ghost. Many were healed by the

p e r of God and delivered from powers

of evil as Bro. Russell B. Park prayed for

them.

The best of fellowship and understand-

ing existed between the four co-operat-

ing Pastors and the Evangelistic Party.

Rev. Albert Durham of Wichita, Kansas,

had charge of the afternoon services and

Bro. Henry Pletcher directed the singing.

As Bro. Park stepped to the microphone

and began to sing, “That they all might

be one was His prayer,” every old tradi-

tion and doctrine of men, our difference

of opinion and petty ideas were dropped

like a shabby old coat at the door, as the

poet has said, and by the time Bro. Park

reached the chorus, “Isn’t He wonderful,

wonderful, wonderful,” we were all of one

accord and singing with him.

Satan will not soon recover nor heaven

forget the mighty impact against the

forces of evil that was waged for those

three weeks in Spearman, Texas. Only

eternity will reveal what this mighty

awakening, and moving of the Spirit has

brought forth.

MIGRAIN HEADACHES GONE

AFTER TWO YEARS of praying, the

into my home to live during the revival

and words cannot ex-

me. I p ray that I

have been a blessing

to them, too.

On June 19, 1952,

I was healed in Bro.

I had never heard a

Bro. Park prayed for

me on the night of

June 19th. 1952. Aft-

perfectly.

Not only this but I had had migrain

headaches for which I took Histimine

sfiots for over two years. I have not

taken a shot of Histamine since that night

in June.

Praise the Lord for His healing and

the blessings I received during the Park

daily prayer.

CONVULSIONS HEALED

1 WANT to praise my glorious Lord for

healing me. I had terrible pains in the

right side of my head that felt like it

would take the top off my head.

After suffering that way for two weeks

I began having convulsions when I would

lie down. I would have to turn my head

so easy after I lay down or I would have

another convulsion and when I would get

up I would go side ways and backwards.

I dreaded for night to come.

After hearing Brother Russell B. Park

preach and study* Gordon Lindsay’s

book on healing and rea- the Bible

I knew God would heal me.

Brother Park prayzd for me and I was

healed. I am happy to say I haven’t been

sick since. Praise the Lord.

SPRINGVILLE CHURCHES .

WITNESS MIRACLES

By Rev. Wilbur C. Bond, Pastor

Assembly of God Church, Springville, N.Y.

S gone, all gone, I know my heart

‘‘F

IS healed.”

“Look! I can move my fingers perfectly;

all the arthritis is gone.“

“Yes, Sir, I ??,a“ hear you behind me,

even a whisper.

“Sir, I want to say I am 75 years old,

and for 27 years have had a bad rupture.

When I felt for it just now, it was gone.”

These are a few of the wonderful things

people are saying in Springville, New

York, since the L. C. Robie, “BIBLE SAL-

VATION AND HEALING MEETING“ AU-

gust 17th-September 14th.

Conviction for a need of Christ as the

only way of salvation gripped people ev-

ery night. Many sought Him “Who is

able.to save unto the uttermost.”

The power to heal surged through these

meetings. The lame, arthritic, deaf, blind,

ruptured, chronic ailments, spinal cases,

and other internal disorders were im-

proved, healed or suddenly delivered.

One notable healing was that of Mrs.

Burt Skinner who was able to flex her

arthritic fingers and hear remarkably bet-

ter after prayer, thus she was encour-

aged to believe GOD would heal her right

eye which was injured 78 years before,

- c. -.*

causing total blindness. Did God do it?

HE DID!

When Brother Robie prayed, she said:

“I can sPe the lights on the ceiling . . .

now, the clock! . . the people, their

clothing . . . Oh, Praise God! I can see,

I can see in both of my eyes, now!”

Marilyn Townsend, of Boston, New

York, heard her watch tick for the first

time in her life.

A lady from Duboii, Pennsylvania,

heard that Brother (Robie was here. and

came on the train to the meeting, to be

prayed for. She was almost stone deaf

but, after prayer by Brother Robie, went

away hearing perfectly normally.

I think the deepest truth to remember

about heaven‘s own method of publicity

through divine healing is that. like sU oth-

not an end in itself. Crowds are so intoxi-

wonderful if we have gathered them, or

REV. GREEN

BIBLE CENTERED REVIVAL

COMES TO GRANTS PASS

By Norene C. Nicholts, Co-pestor

Assembly of God-Grants Pass, Oregon

VANGEUST PHILIP N. GREEN

E was in. the Revival Center Taber-

nacle, Grants Pass, Oregon, for three

wonderful weeks, August 10 through

31. What has been accomplished only

time and eternity will reveal, for

Brother Green’s ministry mightily exalts

the Word of God which continues to grow

and bring forth fruit as time goes on.

Never have we heard a minister who

stresses the reading of the Bible as he

does which, in itself, brings salvation,

healing, health, long life, deliverance, pros-

perity, blessing, etc.

In Brother Green’s own words, which

I quote, is the full expression of the type

of meetings that we have richly enjoyed:

”My meetings are more Biblecentered

than they are evangelhtically-centred,

they are more Biblecentered than they are

miraclecentmed, they are more Bible-

Genbered thin they are %reen’-cenbmd.”

Brother Green has infinite patience in

dealing with the sick and nevq stops un-

til all in the prayer line have been prayed

for. He deals individually with the afflic-

ted, taking time to encourage them in

faith. He never seems to be in a hurry

with anyone. Many times we heard him

ask folks where their pains, aches and

sorenesses were before praying for them

and, when they tried tn find them, they

were already gone. He would laugh and

say that he knew they had already been

healed before they got to him, but he

wanted them to discover it for themselves.

Here are some testimonies of heallngs

that took place in these meetings: Mrs.

Virginia Westerman, Murphy Stage Road,

Box 73A, Grants Pass, Oregon, asked

prayer for an internal condition, but

found that God healed her not only of

that but also of ha fever. allergy and

lack af appetite. A &a1 doctor, Dr. Wjl-

lJam Mo?re. is the one who had diagnosed

her condiQon.

Fred L. Ward, Grants Pass Hotel,

Grants Pass, Oreg~n, was haled of a

broken bone-the short bone from the hip

to the spine which had been broken since

the first World War. The doctor told him

that nothing could be done and to never

allow surgery or he would be a cripple.

Also, at the same the. he was mznp1etely

healed of sinus trouble.

Beulah Sallee, P.O. Box 669, Grants

pass, Oregon, was n&aiulously healed of

a short leg. It was three quarters of an

inch shorter than the other leg, and all

of her shoes had to be built u.g to give

her proper balance. When healed; she

could not wear any of her shoes, so she

took them to the same shoe repair man

who built them up for her to have them

lowered, This proved to be B real testi-

mony to him of the miracle working

power of God.

Brother Green held Bible Study classes

each morning from 1O:OO to 11:OO. Mon-

day through Friday, for two weeks. He

used large blackboard charts in colored

chalk by which he made the Bible live.

Having been a teacher in college, he is

well fitted for this type of work. Never

were the clssses dull or dead but rather

vibrant with life and interesting as well

as instructive. We had an average of 95

in attendance for the two-week period.

Brother Green is planning to make these

classes an outstanding part of every de-

liverance meetina.

O N

TWIN HEALED OF POLIO

JULY 21, my daughter, a twin,. who

.is nearly two years o1d;was stncken

with polio. Our pastor was gone, so my

sister called her Foursquare pastor in to

pray. God spared her lie on the fourth

day, and also delivered her from being a

cri~nlle. as the entire left side of her body

was paralyzed and

limbs were crippled.

Later, our pastor

also prayed and all

pain left her body.

Three weeks later,

Brother Philip Green

prayed for her and

she began walking

alone on August 22.

Her healing was

all gradual, that is,

she first learned to

hold her head up,

then her back, then

she sat up alone, and

it wasn’t long after

God straightened her

leg out, until she began

walking by herself; and now people

ask me, when they see the twins, “Whlch

one had the polio?”

Thank God for His faithful servants,

who first of all prayed God to deliver me

from fear, so I could have faith also, and

have courage to refuse all attacks of the

devil concerning this child. God also delivered

me from this disease the very day

it tried to fasten itself upon me. Praise

God for Bible deliverance!

OW GOOD is the God we

adore?” Well can the Birming-

ham people say this about their Feast

of Pentecost. ,

We began ‘on Saturday night in Gra-

ham Street with Pastor Burton Haynes

delivering. the first message. Pastor Dyke

then introduced Brother Green, a univer-

sity graduate with tGro degrees who, until

June, 1950, taught philosophy and psy

chology. At that time God spoke to him

and said that if he would give pp.all his

books and read the Bible onIy, He would

grant him miracles of healing. God has

granted these things and people were

healed in every Divine heahg service

during the convention.

People from all aver the Midlands made

their way to the Town Hall on Monday,

and there was also a coach lpad from

Hayes and Ealing for the three grand

meetings. The morning devotional service

thrilled us as Pastors Gorton and Burton-

Haynes spoke on the unfailing resources

of God. In the afternoon missionary rally

Pastor Lewis outlined India’s great need,

and impressed ‘on us the necessity of pray-

ing, :giving and going. Brother Green then

took over, gave a brief exliort.ation; then

prayed for scores oP people who joined

what he termed “The D.eliverance Line.”

Faith was inspired as sick people recov-

ered, and .the, number desiring deliverance

was so great that it was soon ,time to

commence the evening service, and many

sick friends could not be prayed for.

The‘evening service will not be soon

forgotten; the anointed singing of the

‘united Crusader Choir; the duets of Pas-

tor and Mrs. Gorton; Pastor Burton-

Haynes’ warning to .young people and.

finally, explosions, as B r o t h e r Green

preached on “Spiritual Dynamite.” It was

an inspiring scene to see people discard-

ing their deaf-aids, glasses tor “nose-

crutches” to use Brother Green’s term).

Some of the outstanding cases of heal-

ing, were the following:

A young man-blind. Prayed for an

Sunday night. In ten minutes could see

the color of the carpet and piano. He told

us on Monday morning that he had

shaved, looking in a mirror, for the Arst

tie in his life.

A man blind in both eyes-heaLed with.

out being prayed for..

Woman with severe heart trouble-who

had to he carried into meeting. Came to

church on bus the next night for the,first

time in five years..

Othd miraculous healings occurred, too

numerous to m e n t i on here. such. as

goiters remoyed. ulcers healed; operations

planned became unnecessary, . the deaf

heard‘, some who had been deaf for 20

and 30 years, stiff knees healed, chronic

fibrositis.of hips, and stiff neck and arms

were-made completely well.

It ‘was Indeed ‘gratifying to see the

great number of souls saved. and begin

a new lire for God. To Him be all the

glory!

JACK COE- CHILDREN'S HOME IS SCENE.

OF SOUL-STIRRING CAMP MEETING

By Rev. H. Donald Skelton

Pastor. Victory Assembly of God Church

Dallas, Texas

ALLAS HAS BEEN FAVORED

D with a mighty visitation of God's

miracle working power.

The great Herald of Healing Chil-

dren's Home Camp Meeting, which

was scheduled to last for only two

weeks, was carried on for an extra

week because of the tremendous re-

sponse.

Words fail me to

describe it in its en-

tirety. S u c h Spirit

anointed preaching,

and God confirmed

His Word with signs

following! How privi-

leged we were to

hear these men of

mighty faith minis-

ter (should we men-

tion names?). Sucn a

host of them.

WAVES OF GLORY

Who will forget

the tr e m e n d o u s

waves of glory andvictory that swcpt

over the vast congregations of thousands

of people who night after night were in

attendance! I am in my fifteenth year as

a pastor in the City of Dallas and, in

many respects, this is the greatest meet-

ing ever held in this city.

DAY SERVICES EDIFIED BELIEVERS

A word must be said about the day ser-

vices when hundreds of believers gathered

to receive from God His choicest bless-

ings. The gifts of the Spirit were much

in operation in all the meetings, but es-

pecially for the edifying of the Body of

Christ in the great day services.

MIRACULOUS HEALINGS WITNESSED

Miracles, healings, signs and woleders?

One lady came from Pt. Worth, Texas, a

member of the Episcopal Church, who

was dying with. cancer, had been given

just a few more days to.live by the doc-

tors. After prayer, she ran doum the isle

of the tent to the outside. She came back

to the services three days later and gave

her testimony of how God had healed her

so miraczblousl?) and she had gained five

pomds 4 the three days. She came often

to tlte services after her healing, testified

and praised God for complete healiag. .

Many who were brought to the services

on stretchers were healed and walked to

their cars to go home, much to the amaze-

ment of ambulance attendants who had

brought them.

MANY BLESSED Id GfiING

Never have I witnessed such a spirit of

giving as was manifested among the peo-

ple in this great Camp Meeting. Many

gave generously and sacrificially, but

were rewarded and blessed of the Lord,

as many testified to getting thelr money

back in miraculous and unexpected ways,

many-fold in a great number of cases. I,

personally, had a wonderful expcrience in

that manner. To God be all the glory and

praise.

U. Wessels (South Africa) and Ray

Hughes (U.S.A.), the latter given with

that dynamic power of utterance that

often marks our grand younger preachers.

The Conference is warming up and becom-

ing more and more Pentecostal.

MONDAY, JUNE 30.

Could not get to the second open-air

witness in Trafalgar Square last night,

but hear it was very good. This morning

we commence the serious business of the

Conference, but first of all are blessed

by a devotional message from Lewi Pe-

us these Pentecostal fathers in Christ,

loved and respected throughout the World.

Brother Thomas of Paris gives us a bril-

he well describes it as the “halo” so often

behind the speaker‘s head on the walls of

our Pentecostal churches.

TUESDAY, JULY 1.

At devotions this morning Roswell

Flower (U.S.A.) introduces to us dear old

Elder Mason, the 87-year-old leader of the

big coloured Church of God in Christ de-

nomination of America. His little claps are

infectious, and we should like to see him

all-out preaching to the coloured folk.

Elder Mason mived his baptism in 6he

Holy Spirit in Asum Street Mission in

1906 and must be one of the very few now

left who knew that IMstoric revival. I am

struck by the fine appearance of Elder

Crouch and others of these coloured

Pentecostal leaders. And what rich voices!

What a world-wide revival this surely is.

WEDNESDAY, JULY 2.

Abilenes Schoeman (South Africa) in

charge of devotions. We have a choice

treat this morning Virith the presence and

ministry of Rolf Macpherson and his

charming wife, brna, the leaders of

“Foursquaredom” from the famous Ange-

lus Temple, Los Angeles. Our esteemed

brother recalls his previous visit to En@

land with his famous mother when he was

but a youth. They have a great welcome

to the World Conference.

The Conference strikes fire this morn-

ing as we begin to discuss “Religious

Freedom and Persecution.” The delegation

from Italy moves every heart. Reuben

Das reminds us that India has its prob-

lems also, and mention is made of South

America and some other European coun-

tries. Carefully worded proposals are pre-

sented by Noel Perkin. One English

brother wants us to send an immediate

delegation across to the Roman Catholic

Cardinal. Ultimately the Conference de-

cides on appointing a strong Committee

of three, with an Advisory Committee of

four others, to make representations to

THE VOICE OF HEALING November, 1952

f

appropriate Government departments in

the name of the World-wide Pentecostal

Movements. Another decision is to appoint

a Day of Prayer and Fasting, and

this is finally increased to Ten Days and

fixed for September 21 to 30.

In the evening Samuel German( Brit.

ain) gives a masterly message on the

Cross, striking in homiletios, perfect in

diction, and above all anointed by the

Spirit of God. We thank God for such

able Pentecostal preachers on the central

theme of the Gospel. They are our glory

in Christ.

THURSDAY, JULY 3.

Samuel Nystrom (Sweden) leads devotions,

and we meet for the first time in

our World Conferences, N. F. Coughran,

Overseer of the Pentecostal Church of

God, U.S.A.. who brings the morning message.

Donald Gee takes over for the Con

ference and after some more powerful

contributions to the debate we adopt some

important resolutions aimed at assisting

our Pentecostal brethren struggling for

religious liberty. Later we discuss the

Reports from yesterday’s Groups. The

level of speaking is higher now; and how

obedient are the speakers to that tinkle

from the Chairman’s bell that tells them

their five minutes are up!

Fred Squire presides at another great

evening meeting, when the speakers are

Noel Perkin (U.S.A.); Miss Hattie Hammond

(Just back from ministry in Northern

Europe); and Hugh Dawson of Eng

land. During this meeting a message is

sent to Her Majesty the Queen conveying

sincere greetings and assurances of prayer

from representatives of twentyfive nations

gathered in the World Pentecostal

Conference. A11 stand as the message is

put to the meeting by Donald Gee and

f ormaUy adopted. ’

FRIDAY. JULY 4.

Leonard Steiner leads devotions, and we

are blessed by a morning masage from

H. L. Chesser, General Overseer of the

Church of God, U.S.A., Roswell Flower

takes over for the valuable =ports from

yesterday afternoon’s study Groups. We

all like this Group method mom and

more.

Now comes one of the bombshells of

the Conference, as David J. du Plessis

first gives us his report of his last three

years’ activities as Secretary of the Conference,

and then tells us that he definitely

feels the time has come for him to lay his

office down.-There is no doubt about the

appreciation expressed by various speakers

for the vast amount of travelling and

work our esteemed brother has devoted to

the cause of furthering world-wide unity

among Pentecostal Groups. A love-offering

is taken to help our brother with his

expenses for his journey home.

We wish it could have been’an even

more generous token of our love and

gratitude. David J. du Plessis has been a

man when the Lord burdened by the Holy

Spirit for the cause of unity, and the fact

of many new Pentecostal Groups being

represented for the first time was visible

proof that his efforts have not been !n

vain. We are happy that we shall still

enjoy his fellowship, even if no loyger in

his omcial capacity.

During the long period taken in count-.

ing the votes, the Editor of “PentecosO’

‘ (Contiwed on Page 18)

17


DELEGATE DIARY . . . (from p. 17)

gives his report. This is enthusiastically

received. The circulation is growing stead-

ily (though many more subscribers could

be added in America) and the paper is

free of debt. The Editor rejoices at giving

his services freely, and pays warm tribute

to the co-operation of F. B. Phillips, the

General Manager of the Victory Press.

John Carter moves a hearty vote of

thanks, and this is immediately adopted.

Donald Gee is asked to continue editing

and publishing the magazine on the same

basis as heretofore. Everybody seems

happy.

Now the Conference is made happy by

a hearty invitation to hold the next trien-

nial World Conference of Pentecostal

Churches in the great FiladelAa Church

in Sboclrholm, Sweden. This is accepted

with acclamation. Memories of the Euro-

pean Conference there in 1939 make older

brethren anticipate with zest a return to

Stockholm in 1955, if God permit. But

how much might happen before then!

FRIDAY EVENING.

A friendly Swiss car drives me over

Westminster Bridge to the Royal Fes-

tival Hall shining in beauty, though mod-

ernistic in design, on the South Bank.

Over a hurried tea by the River Thames

my Swiss friends are reminded (dimly?)

of the Lake of Zurich.

This is my first visit to the famous

hall, and its appointments leave me breath-

less. The word “magnificent” seems, for

once, to be fully justified. It is superb.

What a thrilling sight to see it packed

from floor to farthest gallery with a sea

of faces. There is not an empty seat.

H. W. GreEnway presides, and we imme-

diately sense the perfection of the acous-

tics. Its walls soon ring with the praises

of Jesus. E. C. W. Boulton (England)

leads us in devotion-and who more fitted

so to do? The London Crusader Choir,

under the direction of Douglas B. Gray,

renders exquisite musical ministry. The

four speakers are Gayle Lewis (U.S.A.),

‘ James Salter (Congo Evangelistic Mis-

sion) Reuben Das (India) and Fred Squire

(Engiand). Thank God that sou!s are won

for Christ on this historic occasion for the

Pentecostal Churches-and also for the

Royal Festival Hall.

A simultaneous meeting is being held in

the Central Hall, Westminster, under the

leadership of F. R. Barnes (London), and

we hear of surprisingly good numbers in

spite of the other great attraction. Min-

istry and testimony is supplied by Mrs.

Roswell Flower (U.S.A.), H. B. Garlock

(Missionary to West Africa), W. D. Up-

shaw (Ex-Congressman, U.S.A.), and John

Dyke (England). At both meetings the

four speakers stress respectively four as-

pects of our distinctive witness-Revival,

Missions, the Supernatural and Evange-

lism.

SATURDAY, JULY 5.

The audience is delighted .when Mrs.

Robert Brown of New York is introduced

as the second speaker. “Glad Tidings” Tab-

ernacle gave $38,000 (about 14.000 pounds)

last year to foreign missions. And dare we

publish it, Sister Brown told us that she

is 71 years of age. Who would have

thought it as we felt the vitality of her

ministry? Her text was I1 Kings 4:2-

“What hast thou in the house?” She re-

minded us that only by pouring OUT

what we already have can we ensure God’s

continued Pentecostal supply.

The last speaker is Gordon Lindsay

(U.S.A), Ohe Editor of “THE VOICE OF

HEALING.” With rapt attention the great

audience listens as he tells how God led

him from smaller things into a fruitful

Aeld of successful evangelism by means of

the “sign-gifts” of Divine healing 60 con-

concludes with an appeal thst brhm

ple streaming to the altar with divers

needs from all over the building.

Then-“JESUS SHALL REIGN

WHERE-ER THE SUN” peals out with

full organ as a closing hymn of adoration

from the World Pentecostal Conference.

Long after the prayer of dismissal has

been uttered the long line of sick stream

up to be prayed for by Brothers Lindsay,

Green, and others.

“Where He displays His healing

power,

Death and the curse are known no

more;

In Him the tribes of Adam boast

More blessings than their father

lost.”

With those victorious words the third,

and by very far the largest, World Con-

ference of Pentecostal Churches passes

into history. They are a fitting climax to

the Conference Theme-“INTO ALL THE

WORLD.”

SYMPTOMS . . . (from p. 16)

have taken them (Greek), and ye shall

have them.”

Consider again that devil’s hateful trin-

ity mentioned above-swellings and sores

and pains. . . . How dreadful and threat-

ening they are! They are like the three

“sons of Anak, Sheshai, and Ahiman, and

Talmai,” Josh. 15: 14, fearsome giants,

who terrorized the people of God for

years, and challenged their entry into

the Land of Promise. Of these the terri-

fied spies said (the unbelieving spies, who

went into the Land to see IF God’s prom-

ise was true-instead of believing it),

“There we saw the giants, the sons of

Anak: and we were in our own sight as

grasshoppers, and so were we in their

sight.” But had not God already said,

“Thou shalt not be afraid of them,”

though they were “a people great and

tall, whom thou knowest, and of whom

thou hast heard say, Who can stand be-

fore the children of Anak! Understand

therefore this day, that the Lord thy God

is he which goeth over before thee; as

a consuming fire he shall destroy them,

and he shall bring them down before thy

face: so shalt thou drive them out, and

destroy them quickly, as the Lord thy

God hath said unto thee!” Deut. 9:2, 3. Is

not that wonderful encouragement! There-

fore courageous Caleb (“whose faith fol-

low”) prayed: “If so be the Lord will be

with me, then I shall be able to drive

them out, as the Lord hath said.” Thus,

testifying to his faith and the faithful-

ness of God, we triumphantly read that

“Caleb drove thence the three sons of

Anak, Sheshai, and Ahzman, and Talmai.”

Josh. 15:14.

So, beloved child of God, if you too

are molested by those modern “sons of

Anak,” Pains and Swellings and Sores;

if after prayer they have persistently

plagued you and challenged your entry

into the Promised Land of Health; now-

in the Name of the Lord, take victory,

over them, and, like Caleb, drive them

off your territory. Or rather, accept the

fact that they are driven off long ago

by a Mightier than Caleb. They are beaten

at Calvary, and you are free from their

power as you stand in faith. Arise in

victory now. Slip past the beaten bullies.

Do not bow to them. Do not recognize

them. Do not see them. Ignore them.

\.‘J&sus has dealt with them and driven

them out of your pathway and life. Ignore

their power and their very presence.

Stand in Christ’s victory, and rejoice. The

manifestation of victory will follow the

Faith.

It is perfectly natural to look for symp

toms. But divine healing is perfectly

supernatural. It is not a physical thing.

It is, like salvation, a thing of grace. Both

are by faith and not by sight or feeling.

If you. look for symptoms you are- lim-

ited by what you see. Faith leaps far

beyond sight and lives in a realm of per-

fect heaven-centered liberty and victory.

Faith has X-ray eyes that see the invisible

through the visible, the reality beyond the

seeming. The invisible is always in Christ,

that serene peace and health and har-

mony in spirit, soul and body that Jesus

died to purchase for all who believe.

Symptoms will m i s 1 e a d you. Mistrust

them. God will deliver you. Trust Him.

Arise - come to Him in the scriptural

way - and claim His perfect redeeming

work for your body-NOW. In spite of

everything -trust Him. F a i t h ignores

symptoms. Because Faith trusts God.

MISCELLANY

McKAY EVANGELISTIC PARTY

MINISTERS IN MERCERSBURG

E ARE HAPPY to report to the

whonor and glory of God, a glorious,

victorious revival of Bible deliverance

here in our city, with the

McKay Evangelistic party.

Mercersburg, situated in the heart of

the Cumberland Valley of Pennsylvania,

with its surrounding community, has

never before been so mightily awakened

by the impact of the gospel.

The dynamic ministry of Brother Mc-

Kay filled the large tent night after night

to capacity.

The night Edith Evelyn gave her

Heavenly Vision, the crowd was estimated

at twenty-five hundred people.

As Brother McKay laid hands on sick

folk, praying the prayer of deliverance,

diabetics were healed, blinded eyes were

opened, the deaf made to hear and the

dumb made to speak. I

Numbers were gloriously saved, and

filled with the Spirit. On one particular

night many young people filed into the

prayerroom for salvation and to dedicate

their lives to the service of the Lord.

The kind and congenial spirit of our

precious Brother McKay has won the

hearts of many and he leaves Mercers-

burg with many new friends; therefore,

he received a unanimous vote for a re-

turn meeting in August of 1953.

BLINDNESS HEALED

I HAVE been blind in my left eye for

twenty-seven years. My blindness was

caused from pneumonia when I was a

child. The doctor did not advise an opera.

FRIDAY, JUNE 27,1952

This is London, and the historic

buildings clustered at its heart in

Westminster .are bathed in summer

sunshine as the crowds gather for the

long awaited World Conference of

Pentecostal Churches. Facing the

Central Hall, famous venue for the

first meetings of the United Nations

Organization, is the noble West front

of Westminster Abbey, set in the cool

of green lawns and shady trees. Just

behind stand the Houses of Parlia-

ment, dominated by Big Ben. We are

going to meet in an unrivalled natural

setting during the next nine days.

SATURDAY, JUNE 28.

The finest open-air meeting I ever at-

tended in my life was held in Trafalgar

Square this afternoon in connection with

our Conference, and that in spite of al-

most insupportable heat rising from the

stone-flagged S uare. John Carter (Eng

land) led; RAph Cranston (Canada)

spoke, followed by the testimon of that

veteran in public speaking. Ex-Eongress-

man Upshaw of the U.S.A., to his mira-

culous healing. There was a masterly

touch in the way Percy Brewster (Wales)

drew the meeting to a climax. How good

to watch an expert in anything. Thank

God for some immediate decisions for

Christ.

An American Pentecoslal wedding in

St. Margaret’s, Westminster! Who would

have believed it! But this afternoon Anna

Jeanne Moore, of the “Voice of Haling,”

was married there to mmld Blair Price.

I heard reports of a wonderful dinner in

Regent Street.

the great public evening meeting in the

What a world-wide revival this surely is.

this is finally increased to Ten Days and

man when the Lord burdened by the Holy

Spirit for the cause of unity, and the fact

of many new Pentecostal Groups being

represented for the first time was visible

proof that his efforts have not been in

enjoy his fellowship, even if no longer in

his offlcial capacity.

gives his report. This is enthusiastically

received. The circulation is growing stead-

ily (though many more subscribers could

be added in America) and the paper is

free of debt. The Editor rejoices at giving

his services freely, and pays warm tribute

to the co-operation of F. B. Phillips, the

General Manager of the Victory Press.

John Carter moves a hearty vote of

thanks, and this is immediately adopted.

Donald Gee is asked to continue editing

and publishing the magazine on the same

basis as heretofore. Everybody seems

happy.

Now the Conference is made happy by

a hearty invitation to hold the next triennial

World Conference of Pentecostal

Churches in the great Filadelfia Chplrch

in Stockholm,a Sweden. This is accepted

with amlamation. Memories of the European

Conference there in 1939 make older

brethren anticipate with zest a return to

Stockholm in 1955, if God permit. ,But

how much might happen before then.

FRIDAY EVENING.

A friendly Swiss car drives me over

Westminster Bridge to the Royal Festival

Hall shining in beauty, though modernistic

in design, on the South Bank.

Over a hurried tea by the River Thames

my Swiss friends are reminded (dimly?)

of the Lake of Zurich.

This is my first visit to the famous

hall, and its appointments leave me breathless.

The word “magnificent” seems, for

once, to be fully justified. It is superb.

What a thrilling sight to see it packed

from floor to farthest gallery with a sea

of faces. There is not an empty seat.

H. W. Greenway presides, and we immediately

sense the perfection of the acoustics.

Its walls soon ring with the praises

of Jesus. E. C. W. Boulton (England)

leads us in devotion-and who more fitted

so to do? The London Crusader Choir,

under the direction of Douglas B. Gray,

renders exquisite musical ministry. The

four speakers are Gayle Lewis (U.S.A,),

James Salter (Congo Evangelistic Mission),

Reuben Das (India) and Fred Squire

(England). Thank God that souls are won

for Christ on this historic occasion for the

Pentecostal Churches-and also for the

Royal Festival Hall.

A simultaneous meeting is being held in

the Central Hall, Westminster. under the

leadership of F. R. Barnes (London), and

we hear of surprisingly good numbers in

spite of the other great attraction. Ministry

and testimony is supplied by Mrs.

Roswell Flower (U.S.A.), H. B. Garlock

(Missionary to West Africa), W. D. Up

shaw (Ex-Congressman, U.S.A.), and John

Dyke (England). At both meetings the

four speakers stress respectively four aspects

of our distinctive witness-Revival,

Missions, the Supernatural and Evangelism.

SATURDAY, JULY 5.

The audience is delighted .when Mrs.

Robert Brown of New York is introduced

as the second speaker. “Glad Tidings” Tabernacle

gave $38,000 (about 14,000 pounds)

last year to foreign missions. And dare we

publish it, Sister Brown told us that she

is 71 years of age. Who would have

thought it as we felt the vitality of her

ministry? Her text was I1 Kings 4%-

“What hast thou in the house?” She reminded

us that only by pouring OUT

what we already have can we ensure God’s

continued Pentecostal supply.

The last speaker is Gordon Lindsay

(U.S.A), the Editor of “THE VOICE OF

HEALING.” With rapt attention the great

audience listens as he tells Bow God- led

him from smaller things into a fmtful

field of successful evangelism by means of

“Where He displays His healing

have them.”

Consider again that devil’s hateful trin-

ity mentioned above-swellings and sores

and pains. . . . How dreadful and threat-

ening they are! They are like the three

“sons of Anak, Sheshai, and Ahiman, and

Talmai,” Josh. 15:14, fearsome giants,

who terrorized the people of God for

years, and challenged their entry into

the Land of Promise. Of these the terri-

fied spies said (the unbelieving spies, who

went into the Land to see IF God’s prom-

ise was true-instead of believing it),

“There we saw the giants, the sons of

Anak: and we were in our own sight as

grasshoppers, and so were we in their

sight.” But had not God already said,

“Thou shalt not be afraid of them,”

though they were “a people great and

tall. whom thou knowest, and of whom

thou hast heard say, Who can stand be-

fore the children of Anak! Understand

therefore this day, that the Lord thy God

is he which goeth over before thee; as

a consuming fire he shall destroy them,

and he shall bring them down before thy

face: so shalt thou drive them out, and

destroy them quickly, as the Lord .thy

God hath said unto thee!” Deut. 9:2, 3. Is

not that wonderful encouragement! There.

fore courageous Caleb (“whose faith fol-

low”) prayed: “If so be the Lord will be

with me, then I shall be able, tz drive

them out, as the Lord hath sazd. Thus,

testifying to his faith and the faithful-

ness of God, we triumphantly read that

“Caleb drove thence the three sons of

Anak, Sheshai, and Ahiman, and Talmai.”

Josh. 13:14.

So, beloved child of God, if you too

are molested by those modern “sons of

Anak,” Pains and Swellings and Sores;

if after prayer they have persistently

plagued you and challenged your entry

into the Promised Land of Health; now-

in the Name of the Lord, take victory,

over them, and, like Caleb, drive them

off your territory. Or rather, accept the

fact that they are driven off long ago

by a Mightier than Cal.eb. They are beaten

at Calvary, and you are free from their

power as you stand in faith. Arise in

victory now. Slip past the beaten bullies.

Do not bow to them. Do not recognize

them. Do not see them. Ignore them.

‘J~SUS has dealt with them and driven

them out of your pathway and life. Ignore

their power and their very presence.

Stand in Christ’s victory, and rejoice. The

manifestation of victory will follow the

Faith.

It is perfectly natural to look for symp

toms. But divine healing is perfectly

supernatural. It is not a physical thing.

It is, like salvation, a thing of grace. Both

are by faith and not by sight or feeling.

If you.look for symptoms you are limited

by what you see. Faith leaps far

beyond sight and lives in a realm of perfect

heaven-centered liberty and victory.

Faith has X-ray eyes that see the invisible

through the visible., the reality beyond the

seeming. The invisible is always in Christ,

that serene peace and health and harmony

in spirit, soul and body that Jesus

died to purchase for all who believe.

Symptoms will m i s 1 e a d you. Mistrust

them. God will deliver you. Trust Him.

Arise - come to Him in the scriptural

way - and claim His perfect redeeming

work for your body-NOW. In spite of

everything -trust Him. F a i t h ignores

symptoms. Because Faith trusts God.

McKAY EVANGELISTIC PARTY

MINISTERS IN MERCERSBURG

E ARE HAPPY to report to the

whonor and glory of God, a glorious,

victorious revival of Bible deliverance

here in our city, with the

McKay Evangelistic party.

Mercersburg, situated in the heart of

the Cumberland Valley of Pennsylvania,

with its surrounding community, has

never before been so mightily awakened

by the impact of the gospel.

The dynamic ministry of Brother Mc-

Kay filled the large tent night after night

to capacity.

The night’ Edith Evelyn gave her

Heavenlv Vision. the crowd was estimated

at twenty-five hundred people.

As Brother McKay laid hands on sick

folk, praying the prayer of deliverance,

diabetics were healed, blinded eyes were

opened, the deaf made to hear and the

dumb made to speak.

fi

Numbers were gloriously saved, and

filled with the Spirit. On one particular

night many young people filed into the

prayerroom for salvation and to dedicate

their lives to the service of the Lord.

The kind and congenial spirit of our

precious Brother McKay has won the

hearts of many and he leaves Mercersburg

with many new friends; therefore,

he received a unanimous vote for a return

meeting in August of 1953.

BLINDNESS HEALED

I HAVE been blind in my left eye for

twentyseven years. My blindness was

caused from pneumonia when I was a

child. The doctor did not advise an operation

because he said it would affect the

after Rev. Valdez prayed for me I was

able to see with my left eye for the first

time in twenty-seven years. Thank God!

we came to the city of Jericho. As soon

as we crossed the Jordan River, several

members of the party began to be

stricken with nausea, and one after another

God intervened. We do not attach significance

to this incident, but merely consider

it an odd coincidence, as occurring

at the “City of the Cwse.”

Some Bible students see in the events

that took place in Jericho in the days-of

Elijah and Elisha a type of events which

are to take place at the Coming of the

Lord. Jericho is regarded as a type of

the present civilization that has been

built in self-will and to no little extent

inspired by the god of this age. Jezebel,

who persecuted the prophets of God, and

instituted an idolatrous worship, typifies

the apostate church that has committed

adultery with the world, and which is

reserved for judgment. (Rev. 2:20.) Elitop-

for him to come to the “City of

so that He might save those which are

under the curse. On the day Jesus came,;

OUR SERMON OF THE MONTH

HEALING-

A Sign

of the

End Time

. .

Stanley Karol .

E ARE living in the darkest

‘ wmoment of world history, as

anyone can plainly see. No one wants

to be a pessimist but facts are stub-

born things. Fear and uncertainty

prevail upon the hearts of men and

women, raising a thousand questions

only to be met by a note of muted

despair.

THE PLIGHT OF AMERICA

There are so many lost in the mad whirl-

wind of social affairs, obsessed with glut-

tony and surfeiting that rival the very

days that Noah lived in. An age of rum-

mies and sex maniacs that live in tempo

with the jazz craze. This is not compli-

mentary, but the best commentary one

needs on the above is the headlines of

our daily papers.

Yet the condemning factor is not in

itself the debauchery of our people, but

the lukewarmness of a so-called Christian

nation toward the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

This is stated plainly in Rev. 3:16. “So

then because thou are lukewarm and

neither cold “7; hot; I will spue thee out

of my mouth. Yes, a land rich in re-

sources, genius, and history, but spirit-

ually poor. The greatest inheritance of

every American is the Bible upon whose

foundation this land of ours was estab-

lished. “America, back on your knees with

the Bible.” Listen to what God has to say,

“Because thou sayeat, I am rich and in-

creased with guods, and have need of

nothing; and knowest not that thou art

wretched, md miserable and poor. and

blind, and naked.” Rev. 3:17.

TEE PLIGHT OF TEE CHURCH

There was always the tendency on the

part of God’s people to lose sight of some

20

REV. KAROL

vital truth of Scripture necessary for its

existence and work. In this day of learning,

our theological schools are turning

out preachers in a mass production fashion.

Preaching has become a fine art and

even a desired profession in which, today,

one is looked up to. The air waves

are full of ser,mons which propound

choice tid-bits of doctrinal truths, vying

for large listening audiences and a large

mailing response. I believe that the truth

of the scripture that is,found in.11 Timothy

4:3, 4 has come to pass: “For the

time will come when they will not endure

sound doctrine; but after their own

lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers,

having itching ears; And they shall

turn away their ears from tte truth, and

shall be turned unto fables.

We are finding out, to our own damage,

that preaching in itself is not sufficient.

In spite of the prominence accorded

this professlon, sin is running rampant

and darkness, with its evil deeds, prevails

on every hand. People are sleeping their

way into Eternity and destruction under

the very sound of many a preacher. We

must admit that decorum and polish in

the pulpit, as commendable as that may

be, is not doing the job. There is a vital

lack some place. There must be a reason.

Every effect must have a sufficient

cause. I have no ‘bones to pick’ with the

preachers, for I am happy that I am also

one called by Him to be “One of them.”

However, when something does not work,

there is the need of tearing it down and

seeing where the tick went. As much as

we hate to do this, yet we must. This is

the case of the proverbial father saying

to the boy who is about to receive his

spanking, “This hurts me more than it

does you .”

THE SIGN

God intended us to preach, for He said

in Matthew 2434, “And this Gospel of

the kingdom shall be preached in all the

world for a witness unto all nations.”

Also in Matthew 103, 8 we read, “And

as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom

of heaven.is at hand, heal the sick,

cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast

out devils, freely ye have received, freely

give.” Now kindly note the following. God

said for us to go and preach the gospel

of His kingdom and this we willingly did.

May I say that we are doing it still. He

also said tell them of the kingdom being

at hand. This we also obeyed. But here

is where we failed. We have not presented

the full program that God wanted us to.

We have taken the 7th verse and applied

it but overlooked the 8th which is as

much a part of our commission as is

preaching. He said, “Heal the sick, cleanse

the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils

. . .” The SIGNS FOLLOWING ministry

is what is needed to awaken this sin-

stunned world out of its sleep of death.

In these last days, and I am sure no

one will dispute this statement, the only

thing that will bring America to her

knees is preaching, backed by miracles.

In this way, they will not only hear but

be able to see as well. Every miracle per-

formed will be a Rock of Gibraltar, able

to withstand all the attacks of Satan and

his cohorts against the truth of our mes-

sage. In the closing days of this Age and

Dispensation of God‘s grace, I am happy

that “Bible days are here again!” No

more do we have to speak of miracles

as in the past but thank God, we see

them in the present. (Like the two ends

of a cord drawn together about the sin-

ful neck of this world, forming a noose

of judgment is this manifestation of

1 God’s miracle working power in the past

and present.)

This is the Light that will judge the

world. They will see this but refuse to

accept or walk in it. Thus they stand con-

demned without an excuse. “And this is

the condemnation that light is come into

the world, and men loved darkness rather

than light, because their deeds were evil.”

John 3:19. God is giving this sin-blinded

world its last chance to see Christ, not

only in the Word but in miracles as well.

“Go ye into all the world and preach

the Gospel to every creature. He that

believeth not shall be damned. And

these signs shall follow them that be-

lieve; In My name shall they cast out

devils; They shall speak with new

tongues; They shall take up serpents;

and if they drink any deadly thing

it shall not hurt them; they shall lay

hands on the sick and they shall re-

cover , . . As ye go, preach, saying,

The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers,

raise the dead, cast out devils, freely

ye have received, freely give . . . and

this Gospel of the kingdom shall be

preached in all the world for a wit-

ness unto all nations: AND THEN

SHALL THE END COME.” Mark

16:15-18. Matt. 103. 8. Matt. 24:14.

AILMENTS DISAPPEAR

Dear Brother Karol:

I cannot thank God enough for healing

my body. When you anointed and prayed

for me I received healing through God‘s

power. I had been suffermg for over two

years with a number of ailments.

I had stomach trouble, low blood pres.

sure ,nervousness, and had been crippled

for over a year and could not walk. I was

in the h o s p i t a 1 thirteen times in two

years. I have had six doctors to examine

me and no one could give me any help.

I heard Brother Miles announce on the

radio that Brother Stanley W. Karol

would be at the church on the 11th of

March for. a. healing campaign. Two had

to carry me into the church, but after

Brother Karol prayed for me I was able

to walk immediately. Thank God that they

did not have to carry me out, for by His

grace I walked out!

CAMP MEETING - (from p. 15)

FAITH HEALING HOSPITAL

A lady who was healed, after having

been brought to the meeting in an ambu-

lance, broke the ground on the last night

of the meeting for the new Faith Healing

Hospital, which is to be erected on the

Children’s Home grounds. This hospital

will be housed in a ninetyfive thousand

dollar ($95,000.00) building, where people

can come and be prayed for and taught

to trust God for their healing.

This will be a tremendous thing. of na-

tional importance.

Work on the structure is beginning im-

mediately.

NEW ANNEX TO CHILDREN’S HOME

We had the privilege of seeing the new

annex to the Herald of Healing Children’s

Home, including dormitory, play-room,

kitchens. etc., which is now near comple-

tion. This addition will nwre than dou-

ble the space now provided and wall make

possible accommodation for twice the

present number of children in the home.

GREAT BAPTIZING IN WATER

On the last Monday night of the meet-

ing a water baptismal service was held

in the portable baptistry in front of the

pulpit. Four pastors baptized the more

than one hundred converts. (See picture

on this page).

NEARLYEVERYSTATE

REPRESENTED

People were in attendance from almost

every state and some foreign countries,

some coming over two thousand miles to

attend this great Camp Meeting.

Fellowship among the cooperating min-

isters and churches was wonderful.

Truly we are grateful to Brother Coe

for bringing this Camp Meeting to Dallas.

Somebody said that it couldn’t be done

But he with a chuckle replied

That “maybe it couldn’t’’ but he would be one

Who wouldn‘t say SO till he tried,

So he buckled right in, with a trace of a grin an

his face. If he worried, he hid it.

He started to ring as he tackled the thing

That couldn!t be done, and he did it.

Somebody scoffed, “Oh, you’ll never do that,

At least no one has over done it;”

But he took off his coat and he took off his hat

And the first thing we knew he’d begun it.

With the lift of his chin and a bit of a grin,

Without any doubting or “quiddit,”

He started to sing as he tackled the thing

That couldn’t be done, and he did it.

There are thousands to fell you it cannot be done,

There are thousands to prophesy failure;

There are thousands to point out to you, one by one,

the dangers that wait to assail you;

But just buckle in with a bit of a grin

Just take off your coat and go to it;

Just start in to sing as you tackle the thing

Thot “cannot be done” and you’ll do it.

cho is a type of the world under a curse.

Jericho had its hour as all men have their

hour. Jesus’ visit of mercy to that city is

an encouragement to all men and also a

warning. For He never came to Jericho

again.

NOTED CHURCH LEADER IMPRESSED

BY TVH

By Rev. A. H. Argue*

Dear Brother Lindsay:

AM GREATLY impressed with

I your paper “THE VOICE’ OF

HEALING.” I believe it has an in-

fluence in getting the full gospel mes-

,sage, which includes the ministry of

healing, to the people, that is sur-

passed by none.

I have Wen on the evangelistic field

much of the past forty-five years through-

out the United States and Canada.*

I visited the late John Alexander Dowie’s

work in Zion City, Illinois, when he was

alive and saw an almost unbelievable col-

lection of wheel chairs, braces, crutches

and many other similar things discarded

by the sick who had been healed in his

meetings.

Dr. A. B. Simpson, President of ‘the

Christian Missionary Alliance, prayed for

me in 1906, and I received a wonderful

healing. We have witnessed many out-

standing healings in our ministry.

I believe this is God’s hour. New oppor-

tunities are presenting themselves. In-

creasing faith and courage with multi-

plied signs and healings, and a great in-

gathering of souls, are much in evidence.

*I am in my 84th year. Have worked

with Mrs. Woodworth Etter in the early

days of Pentecost. Raymond Richey and

Fred Bosurorth, are old time friends.

ISRAEL’S ARMY

“In May, 1948, in the anarchy of the

British departure and the simultaneous

aggression of Israel’s neighbors, the men

and women of Haganah, nucleus of the

national army, served as the advance

guards of the new State of Israel and

flung themselves into the breach,” said

Lt. Col. Moshe Perlman of Jerusalem.

“They were joined by every able-bodied

man and woman in the country who were

quickly organized into a people’s force

to keep the enemy at bay and preserve

the State from destruction. They won for

themselves one of the most glorious vic-

tories of any people’s war of liberation.

“With the end of this war, came the

breathing spell in which the defense

forces of the country could be more

rationally and effectively organized to

safeguard the sovereignty of the new State

of Israel,” continued Mr. Perlman.

The formation of a national army in

Israel has prepared the way for the ful-

fillment of Zechariah 14:14, “And Judah

(the Jews) also shall fight at Jerusalem.”

APOSTASY

A recent news report reveals the al-

most unbelievable fact that the Ohio

State Liquor Department has issued a

beer and wine permit to a church in

Cleveland. It will allow the bar in the

church recreation center to serve high-

powered beer and wine by the drink. De-

partment officials said they could not re-

member any church ever before obtain-

ing a permanent permit. Surely this indi-

cates the spiritual decline prevalent in so

many churches of our country today. A

spiritual “falling away” is declared to be

a sign of the end-time and the return of

Christ-I1 Thessalonians 2:3.

IRAN LEANING TO CODaMUNISM

The importance of what is taking place

in Iran makes it almost imperative that

we refer to it each month. Russia has

looked enviously through the Iran win-

dow into the Middle and Near East. Iran

is the fourth largest producer of oil in

the world-or was until weeping Premier

Mohammed Mossadegh kicked the British

out. The greatest present and future po-

tential oil lands of the world are in the

Arab countries beyond Iran.

Iran bars the Soviet path to the Per-

sian Gulf and the Indian Ocean, sea out-

lets which give access to India and the

other lands of the Pacific. Iran, too, is a

backdoor to Turkey, guarding the coveted

Dardanelles, through which Russia can-

not now. freely sweep into the Mediter-

ranean. All of this is brought to mind

forcefully as Mossadegh, now given dic-

tatorial powers, works with Red-cooperat-

ing Mullah Ayatulla Kashani, leader of a

fanatical religious group, in organizing

riots. One was arranged to oust Ahmed

Quavam, who at the end of World War

I1 in 1945, stood firm in ousting Russian

troops from the country.

Iran’s treasury, deprived of the direct

and indirect revenue from Anglo-Iranian

Oil Company, is running into the red at

10 million dollars a month, and Iran’s

mobs and parliament are crying “out with

Americans as advisors.” According to a

report from Washington, D. C.. observers

say the door is opening wider and wider

for Communism in Iran, with wide inviting

vistas beyond.

The importance of this development in

Iran is again pointed out as making possible

the Russian attack upon Israel. as

foretold in the 38th chapter of Ezekiel,

very near at hand.

REDS IN ISRAEL

The Soviet ambassador to Israel and

his staff are now going to church every

Sunday, according to a reliable report

from Washington, D. C. This is reported

part of the Red campaign to influence

clergymen and other persons in the strategic

Middle Eastern country. The Russian

Palestine Society has been re-created

in Moscow and, backed by the Soviet

government, is laying claim to extensive

properties in the Jerusalem area. The

claim to ownership of such properties in

Israel gives the Reds the right to send

her troops into Israel to ‘protect’ her interests.

It would be a very simple matter

to ‘create’ a ‘situation’ which would give

Russia a ‘reason’ for ordering Red troops

into Israel under the guise of ‘protecting’

her properties. This would definitely be

the fulfillment of the 38th chapter of

Ezekiel and would set the stage for the

appearance of the antichrist who would

arise as the ‘defender’ of Israel against

the invading forces of the North. Surely

the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.

BUSINESS AS USUAL

The United States has initidted a plan

to increase the printing of paper money

by 50 per cent In an effort to turn out

bank notes as fast as they are being

spent. Officials explained that the printing

of money has lagged behind demands and

the increase has become necessary. This

is due to increased wages, unprecedented

employment and higher costs.

In Luke 27:28,30 we are told, “As it

was in the days of Lot: they did eat, they

drank, they BOUGHT, they SOLD, they

planted, they builded . . . even thus shall

it be in the day when the Son of man is

revealed.” This simply means that “business

as usual” will continue right up to

the very moment of His return. Men today

seem more concerned about carry.

ing on business than preparing for the

return of Christ.

SERIES TWO

WHAT DO YQU READ?

Last month we outlined a series of

books published by The Voice of Heal-

ing, as suggestions for your faith li-

brary. This mot:th, we shall briefly

mention books published by TVH

evangelists.

We believe that it is to the advantage of

every Christian to have these books in

your home. Visitors who come and go

may pick up one of these and, as a result,

get saved or healed, or otherwise blessed.

One of the greatest needs.in the aver-

age Christian home at the present time

is a good selection of faith books to bt.

placed in a prominent place so they will

be easily available.

In Sweden, the FuU Gospel Church's

liberal use of the printing press has to no

little extent',been responsible for that

movement's' being the leading religious

one of the nation,

A very important inspirational book

on Divine healing is T. L. Osborn's

Healing the Sick and Casting Out Devils.

This volume is really a combination of

five books, and has resulted in the healing

of many.

Brother Osborne has also written two

amazing missionary books-Revival Har-

vest With nliracles of Healing, and Re-

vival Fires Sweep Cuba - Miracles of

Healing.

F. F. Bosworth's Christ the Healer is

a classic on the subject and was written

bv a man who has received 225.000 testi-

monials of healing during his 'iong and

fruitful ministry.

A. A. Allen's book The Price of God's

Miracle Working Power tells how the au-

thor sought God by prayer and fasting

many days, and then, in his closet, God

spoke and revealed to him a number of

secrets which opened to him the power of

God. The several chapters relate the ac-

tual words that God spke to him. This

book has had a wide sale. Bro. Allen also

has published an excellent booklet Receive

Ye the Holy Ghost.

The Story of Jack Coe will make the

reader weep, laugh and, if unsaved, will

lead him to Christ. Just the book to put

into the hands of the unconverted. He

won't stop until he has'read it completely

through.

For those who want faith-building ser-

mons, we recommend Gayle Jackson's

Divine Deliverance. The sermcns contained

in this volume were preached to thou-

sands of people, and have resulted in as

many as five thousand people surrender-

ing to Christ in one campaign.

Supernatural Deliverance was written

by Clifton Erickson, whose campaign in

Chile recently drew crowds of people, up

to 75,000, and shook the republic, It also

gives an account of how he received the

healing ministry.

One of the newest books of sermons

is that oi W. B. McKay, Christ's Deliver-

ance for Soul and Body.

The thrilling story of how Sister McKay

was caught up to heaven for several

hours appeared in a recent issue of TVH.

Paul Cain's The Life and Ministry of

Pari1 Cain tells a most unusual story of

the call of a youth to a national ministry,

though only 21 years of age. This has had

an unusual sale.

The booklet The World's Meanest Thief

is the best small work available on the

subject of tithing. A new edition of 50,000

just recently came off the press, Just the

thing to give a person who doesn't believe

in this Bible truth. Brother Gardner has

also just written a booklet about Father

Divine, entitled I Spent Saturday Night in

the Devil's House. The first edition of

5,000 was sold out within a month. He has

a fine book of sermons under the title The

God of Miracles. He has also written Heal-

ing For You.

The W. V. Grant books are written in

a style of homespun English. Brother

Grant's minIstry has resulted in thousands

of people being healed and receiving the

Baptism of the Holy Spirit. Volumes I and

I1 of Divine Healing Answers contain the

answers to practically all the objections

raised against healing.

The Grace of God in My Life is a story

of his experiences and of his call to the

healing ministry. A new book, published

not long ago, is for those who have not

yet received the Baptism. It is called How

To Receive the Holy Ghost.

TVH office has a limited number of

copies of the booklet World Pentecostal

Conference with special messages by Full

Gospel leaders throughout the world. We '

also have only a little over a hundred

BOOK-OF-THE-MONTH

The ‘.Story of the Conversion

WAS BORN on a quaint little Eng-

1 lish street in a little brick house

that jostled right up to the sidewalk,

with no lawns in front and no gardens

in back. When I was two years

old .my little sister, Jessie, was born.

The arrival of the sweet baby was in

a sense clouded with a deep sorrow,

for the birth of the child meant the

death of my mother. I do not remember

my mother; although there have

been times, especially in later years,

when she seemed to be very, very

near me. I have been told that before

she went away to glory she took me

in her arms and dedicated me to the

service of the Lord. One of these days

in the not too far distant future I am

going to have a real happy visit with

the mother I never knew.

HIS NEW STEP MOTEXR

A few years later my father married

again. It is my belief that he could have

searched the world around and not found

a sweeter or a nobler woman than the one

I learned to call my mother. This dear

mother was very insistent that plans and

preparations be made to give me the best

schooling that they could possibly afford.

‘. Through the sacrifice of my parents it

was possible for me to go through school

and college. It was during these years that

. followed that I began to drift. While I

loved my parents deeply, I foolishly began

to believe that their outlook on life

was old-fashioned and rather narrow. For

a while I labored with a Sheffield law

firm, and at first was fascinated by the

atmosphere of the courtrooms. After a

while I became restless and moved to

Canada. From Canada I felt impressed to

go to Spokane.

CONVERTED IN SPOKANE I

One night in early autumn I was standing

with my back to a lamp post listening

to the singing of a little band of mission

workers. .When the street meeting

was over a little old lady detained me.

“DO you know God wants you?” she said.

Suddenly I felt uncomfortable. I am afraid

that I was rather rude in the way I excused

myself and hurried away. Halfway

across the Monroe Street Bridge, I

stopped. A peculiar feeling had come over

2

and Healing Ministry of

. DR. CHARLES S. PRICE

As told by himself

Dr. Price.

STORY OF DR. PRICE. His campaigns

in the twenties were of tremendous sine

and resulted in the conversion and

healing of tens of thousands.

www.williambranhamstorehouse.com

me. I began to feel as if God had spoken

to the old lady and a feeling of dread

and awe came upon me. Slowly I re-

traced my steps and I arrived eventually

at the mission.

What a battle went on in my heart that

night! The road I was going led down.

I knew it. I was getting to the place that

I did not care what happened, and while

I was not in the gutter, yet I was slipping

down, down, down, and I knew it was dis-

aster, and sorrow in the end. When Mr.

Stayt gave the altar call I sprang to my

feet, squared my shoulders and marched

down to the front. That night I gave my

self to God. I was desperately in earnest.

I was absolutely sincere. I did not have

the great emotional experience that came

to ,me in an event that I shall describe

later.

For a while I labored in the Free Meth.

odist Mission that taught and practiced

the old-fashioned Wesleyan doctrine of

scriptural holiness. They were wonderful

people, and they lived very close to God.

In the meantime, to support myself, I got

a job with a large grocery firm. Before

long I was making huge caldrons of car-

amels of every kind and description. I

became quite an expert in the manufac.

ture of chocolate centers.

Events moved swiftly now. I was ad-

mitted to the conference and was or-

dained by Bishop Smith. I built two par.

sonages and’ raised all my benevolences,

and prided myself on the result of my

church ministry. Then something hap

pened. While in the Life Line Mission,

news came of the falling of the Holy

Ghost in the city of Los Angeles. An evan-

gelist up from California came to see me.

He spoke to me in convincing terms of

the falling of the power. He told of the

miracles of healing, of the latter days and

the soon return of the Lord. I promised

him that I would go home and pray. I

did and slowly conviction came over my

soul. I promised to meet with workers at

a certain time and place the following

day, that I might be filled with the Holy

Ghost. I went home walking on air.

THE VOICE OF THE MODERNIST

On my way to the prayer meeting, the

next day I met a certain minister. I en.

thusiastically explained the situation to

him and that I was on the way to a pray

er meeting. To my amazement he gripped

me by the arm and said, “Price, I can

not let you go. You’ll wreck your future-

earthquakes at Bakersfield, California.

worth Etter preached in that vicinity and predicted the coming of the

disaster.

HAT IS THE BIBLE signifi-

W cance of the earthquake? What

does the Prophetic Word have to say

about this strange terrestrial phenomenon?

We are told by geologists

that quakes come as a result of faults

in the earth’s surface, that this planet

is gradually cooling, and, in so doing,

is shrinking slightly, causing slippage

to occur at the points where the faults

are found. Granted this is true, does

the Bible reveal that there is a prophetic

significance to these periodic

convulsions of nature? As the time

of the end draws near, are we to expect

greater and more serious upheavals

of the earth’s surface?

The newspapers recently informed us

of the severe shocks in Southern California,

during which events Eakersfield,

Tehachapi, Arvin and other cities were

seriously damaged. In 1933, there was the

disastrous quake that destroyed millions

of dollars worth of property in Los Angeles.

Before that, Santa Barbara was severely

shaken. Also, there was that great

earthquake which practically destroyed

the city of San Francisco in 1906. In this

disaster, more than Eve hundred people

lost their lives and property damage

reached nearly ~$300,000,000.00, equivalent

perhaps to a billion dollar loss today.

Other areas than California have been

,visited by devastating earthquakes. In

1923, a .third of Tokyo and most of Yokohama

were thus destroyed. In India in

1935 a quake killed 50,000 people. In Chile,

during 1939, a disastrous earth tremor

razed some 50,000 square miles and took

the lives of 30,000 people. That same year

Turkey suffered from an earthquake

which was marked by one. hundred thousand

(100,000) casualties.

6

Does God control the earthquake, or

are those things beyond His Providence?

When we were in Venezuela a couple of

years ago, Brother Olson, an Assembly

Missionary, related to us a most interesting

incident. A destructive earthquake had

devastated El Tocuyo, an interior city of

West Central Venezuela. The whole city

was demolished except for three buildmgs,

of which only the Pentecostal

Church and the mission compound were

undamaged. The latter was once on a busy

main street. Now it stands in the center

of an empty desolate field (see pictures).

Surely the Lord knoweth them that are

His!

Mrs. Woodworth Etter, ‘ the famous

evangelist, tells in her Life Story, how

the Spirit of God warned her of the coming

of the San Francisco earthquake.

Quoting her: “While holding meetings in

California, the Lord showed me that a

great destruction was coming. Soon after,

the papers were ablaze with pictures of

the awful earthquake and. holocaust in

San Francisco, and the surrounding country.

I had told them that God always

sends mercy first, and that they would be

visited next with destruction and judg

ment. The earthquake soon followed and

the fear of God came on those who remembered

the prophecy. Both prophecies

were fulfilled within a week, and I lived

to walk over the ruins.”

What does the Bible have to say about

the significance of earthquakes? Jesus,

when asked about events which were to

take place during this age in anticipation

of His Second Coming, said,

Matt. 24:7,*

“And there shall be.. . earthquakes

in divers places. Al:,these are the be-

. ginning of sorrows.

It is interesting to note the words of

the Scripture concerning the earthquake

which occurred while Elijah was waiting

for the Lord to speak to him. First there

www.williambranhamstorehouse.com

came a great wind from heaven that rent

the mountains and brake the rocks; but

the Lord was not in the wind; and after

the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was

not in the earthquake: and after the earthuake

a fire; but the Lord was not in the

8,

When the Lord spoke it was by ‘‘a still

small voice.” It would appear from this

that God wishes to teach His people by

speaking to them in “a still small voice,”

rather than by major disasters such as

earthquakes. However, many people will

not respond to love; therefore, God has

to deal with them in judgment.

In this present article we are especial-

ly interested in the earthquakes men-

tioned in the Bible, and their significance.

In our study, we are struck with a strange

circumstance. The earthquakes of proph-

ecy seem to be especially associated with

the resurrection power of God, the corn-

ing of Christ, and Divine judgment. There

are seven such references.

THE FIRST EARTEQUAKEL

UZZIAH’S EARTHQUAKE

The prophet Zechariah refers in Zech.

14:6 to A GREAT EARFQUAKE which

occurred in the days of King Uzziah. It was

such a terrible disaster thgt the people of

Jerusalem fled for their lives to the moun.

tains. The Prophet Amos also refers to

this earthquake in his prophecy. (Amos

1:l).

As we have said, the earthquakes of

the Scriptures seem to be strangely as-

sociated with a manifestation of God’s

resurrection power. We are told that,

after Elisha died, some men were burying

a dead man but, before they could corn.

plete their task, a band of Moabites ap

peared. In haste they threw the corpse

into the sepulcher of Elisha. An’ amazing

thing then happened. When the corpse

was let down, and touched the bones of

Elisha, he revived and stood up on his

THE VOICE OF HEALING December, 1952

i


feet. (II Kings 13-21). The significant

thing about the incident is that the event

apparently took place about the time of

Uzziah (Azsriah) who was King of Judah

when the great earthquake occurred.

Zechariah seems to consider this dis-

aster as a type of the great earthquake

which will take place at the time of the

Coming of the Lord with His samts. (Zech.

145).

SECOND EARTHQUAKE -.EARTH-

QUAKE AT RESURRECTION

OF CHRIST

Matthew 2751-53-

“And, behold, the veil of the.tem

ple was rent in twain from the top to

the bottom; and THE EARTH. DID

QUAKE, and the rocks rent;

And the graves were opened; and

many bodies of the saints which slept

arose,

And came out of the graves after

His resurrection, and went into the

holy city, and appeared unto many.”

Matthew 282-

“And, behold, THERE WAS A

GREAT EARTHQUAKE: for the an-

gel of the Lod descev-zded from

heaven, and came and rolled back the

stone from the door, and sat upon it.”

Earthquakes often come in series.

These two quakes happened successively

at the death and resurrection of the Lord

Jesus Christ. The events that occurred at

this time are exceedingly interesting, as

well as significant. At the death of Christ,

came the A nt earthquake. Certainly it is

not surprising that so great an event as

the death of the Creator should cause the

earth to tremble and convulse. Moreover,

at this time many of the graves of the

saints were thrown open and, after

Christ’s resurrection, they arose and ap-

peared unto many.. It is made clear that

this resurrection did not take place until

after Christ’s resurrection-the dead could

hardly precede RIM who is the Rssurrec-

tion and Che Life.

THE THIRD EARTHQUAKE-THE DAY

OF THE LORD BEGINS

Rev -_ - . . 6 - . -. : s

“And I beheld when he had opened

I the sixth seal, and, lo. THERE WAS

A GREAT EARTHQUAKE: and the

j sun becams black -as sackcloth of

hair, and the moon became as blood.” .

The third earthquake of prophecy is

mentioneu as occurring at the time when

“the great day of His (God’s) wrath” begins,

and simultaneously with the darkening

of the sun. Jesus establishes the

time of the darkening of the sun as at

the close of the Great Tribulation (Matt.

24:29). Peter shows that it occurs just

before “that gTFat and notable day of

the Lordkome. (Acts 2:30). We would

assume therefore that the Day of the

Lord follows the Great Tribulation.

We cannot refrain from taking note of

the remarkable event that occurs at the

time of this earthquake and the darkening.of

the sun.

Matthew 24:29-31-

“lmmediutely after the tribulation

of those days shall the sun be darkened,

and the moon shall not give her

light, and the stars shall fall from

heaven, and the powers of the heavens

shall be shaken:

And then shall appear the sign of

I the Son of man in heaven: and then

shall a11 the tribes of the earth

mourn, and they shall see the Son of

man coming in the clouds.of heaven

with powsr and great glqry.

And he ehall send hcs angel8 with

a great soun&of a trumpd, and they

shall gather together his elect from

the four winds, from one end of

heaven to the other.”

We are told directly that this event is

the Second Coming of Christ.

FOURTH EARTHQUAKE-EARTH-

QUAKE OF TflE TRUMPET

JUDGMENTS

Rev. 85-

‘rAnd the angel took the censer,

and filled it with firesof the altar,

and cast it into the earth: and

there were voices, and thunderings,

and lightnings, and an earthquake.”

THIS EARTHQUAKE introduces the

great Trumpet Judgments which fall upon

the earth as a manifestation of God’s

wrath. The day of God’s mercy having

ended, wrath begins. It is a sad hour for

the inhabitants of the world. During these

terrible days an angel cries out from

heaven:

Rev. 8:13-

THE VOICE OF HEALING December, 1952

“Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of

the earth by reason of the other

voices of the trumpet of the three an-

gels, which are yet to sound.”

Mercy rejected, finds only wrath re-

maining!

FIFTH EARTHQUAKE - RESURREC-

TION OF THE TWO WITNESSES .

Rev. 11:11-13-

“And after three days and an half

the Spirat ,of life from God entered

into them, and they stood upon thew

feet; and great fear fell upon them

which saw them.

And they heard a great voice from

heaven saying unto them, Come up

hither. And they ascended .up to

heaven in a cloud; and thew ene-

mies beheld them.

AND THE SAME HOUR WAS

THERE A GREAT EARTHQUAKE,

and the tenth part of the city fell,

and in the earthquuke were slain of

men seven thousand . . .”

The story of the Two Witnesses is one

of the most interesting chapters of the

Book of Revelation, but this is not the

place to elaborate. The scene of the Two

Witnesses’ activities is at Jerusalem (Vs.

3-8). They give their testimony to Israel,

apparent1 with telling effect. Eventually

they are gilled by the Beast Power and

their bodies lie for three and a half days

on the street. Suddenly, they stand on

their feet and are raptured to heaven.

As this takes place, a great earthquake

shakes the city and destroys a tenth.part

of it,’killing about seven thowand (7,000)

men. Again we see resurrection associated

with an earthquake. (Some believe that

this prophecy has an historical fulfill-

ment also. Doubtless many prophecies

have a double fulfillment.)

SIXTH EARTHQUAKE - THE

JunCMENT OF THE

RIGHTEOUS DEAD

Rev. II:IB-KL-

!‘And the nations were angw, and

thy wrath b come, and the time of the

dead, that thw should be judged, and,

that thou ahouldest give rward Wnto

www.williambranhamstorehouse.com

thy servants the prophets, and to the

saints, and them that fear thy name,

small and great; and shouldest destroy

them which destroy the earth.

. . . And there were lightnings, and

voices, and thunderings, and AN

EARTHQUAKE, and great haiZ.”

This earthquake is marked by two great

events, one on earth and one in heaven.

On earth the great Vial Judgments are

about to begin, in which the wrath of

God is to be poured out without mixture

(Rev. 14:10).. Hitherto wrath has been

poured out with murture. Even under the

judgment of the Fifth Earthquake, it is

said that men “gave glory to the God .of

heaven” (Rev. 11:13). But under the Vial

Judgments, it seems that men are only

hardened. We read in

Revelation 16:9-

“And men were scorched with a

great heat, and blasphemed the name

of God, which hath power over these

plagues: and tkey repented not to

give him glory.

Sad indeed is the lot of men who have

rejected mercy until this terrible day!

The other event is one of contrast. The

glorified saints of all ages, now appear

amund the judgment seat of Christ to

receive their reward (I1 Cor. 5:10, H Cor.

3:12-14). whether their works have been

gold, silver, precious stones, or hay. wood

and stubble. How important it is that we

not only zealously work for Christ but

that we do our work humbly and sincerely

before God. All that is inspired by the

motive of selfishness, pride or ambition,

are works that must be burned upsuch

are hay, wood and stubble. .

SEVENTH EARTHQUAKE - CHRIST

COMES WITH HIS SAINTS!

Rev. 16:17-1+

. “And the seventh angel - voured - out

his.via1 into the air .

.

.

. . And THERE WAS A GREAT

EARTHQUAKE, such as was not since

men were upon the earth. so mighty

an earthquake, and so great.

And the great city was divided

into three parts, and the cataes of the

nations feil . . .”

This last earthquake is just before the

Coming of Christ with His saints. as is

shown in Rev. 19:11.16. It is the greatest

earthquake in the history of the world, for

we are told that it is “A GREAT EARTH-

QUAKE such as was not since men were

upon the earth.” It occurs at the close of

the Battle of Armageddon (Rev. 16:16-18).

The earthquake divides the city of Jerusalem

into three parts, and is the earthquake

spoken of In Zech. 14:4,5. which

will split the Mount of Olives into two

parts, causing a river of water to flow

toward the Dead Sea, purifying its waters.

Jerusalem is not completely destroyed

by the earthquake, but ominously we

read that, as a result of it, the cities of

the nations shall fall! At that time the

redeemed will be with their Lord in glory.

All their troubles and trials are over

forever?

God rant that every reader of these

pages stall be of that nymber when the

saints go marching home,

I STARTLING INCIDENTS

I AND AMAZING ANSWERS TO PRAYER

MEDICAL SKILL FAILED

PRAYER OF FAITH HEALED

From - “Wonders of Prayer”

HE LIFE OF DOROTHEA TRU-

T DEL has afforded some remarkable

instances of answer to prayer.

During the years 1850 to 1860, in the

Swiss village of Mannedorf, near the

Lake of Zurich and that of Molltingen,

were seen and witnessed many

cases of cure in response to unyielding

faith in the promises of the Lord.

Dorothea Trudel was a worker in flowers

and, in time, came to have many

workers under her.

When she was about thirty-seven years

of age, four or five of her workers fell

sick. The sickness resisted all treatment,

grew worse, and appeared to be hopeless.

She was a deep,earnest Christian and,

while diligent and unselfish as a worker,

her anxiety for her employees drew her to

earnest prayer and study of the Scrip

tures for relief. Like a sudden light, she

says, the well known prayer of the Epistle

of James 5:14,16, flashed before her.

“Is any sick among you? . . . let

them pray over him . . .

And the prayer of faith shall save

the sick, y d the Lord shall rawe

htm up. . .

She thought, “If medical skill is unavading,

is there not prayer? There was

a time when Jesus’ healing power went

forth directly, might it not be put forth

directly still?”

Agitated by these questions, she sought

sick came to her for relief. She sought’

the recovery of the patients by prayer

besieged and, at last, because of her compassion,

she consented to receive invalids

at her home. By degrees her own

house grew into three and, at last, it became

a hospital.

She lived a life of humility and perfect

GOD’S PROMISE PROVED

KERR JARS SURVIVE QUAKE-

LEXANDER H. KERR was con-

A verted under the ministry of

Dwight L. Moody at the age of 14,

and joined the Presbyterian Church

at Philadelphia. In 1902 Mr. Kerr

read a book which referred to the

vow Jacob made in Genesis 28; where

we find the following words, “Of all

that thou shalt give me I will surely

give the tenth unto thee.” Twenty

years later this same Jacob returned

to his home with servants and .cattle in

great abundance; he thus, became one of

the rich men of the east as a result of

keeping his covenant of tithing with the

Lord God.

With some doubts, but with a sincere

desire to test if the Bible is true, to prove

without a shadow of doubt that there is

a personal God and that His promises are

from everlasting to everlasting and that

they are intended for people of this day,

Mr. Kerr, on June 1, 1902, made a special

covenant to set aside a certain percentage

of his income for the work of the Lord.

At that time he had a mortgage on his lit-

tle home, owed many obligations, and was

www.williambranhamstorehouse.com

burdened with cares and worries, espe.

cially of a financial nature. However, he

determined to prove God as did Jacob

(Prov. 3:9-10; Lev. 27:30-32; Gen. 14:20

and 13:2; especially Mal. 3:7-18).

Mr. Kerr often remarked that if modern-day

sceptics wanted proof that there

is a God, and that the Bible is His Holy

Word and all its promises are true, all

that is necessary is to tithe for one year

and God will prove to them without doubt

that He is the same yesterday, and today,

and forever.

Within t ee months after Mr. Kerr be.

gan to tit ? e, unexpected and unforeseen

blessings cam to him-so much so that

it seemed to him that God had thus

opened his eyes to behold His love and

His faithfulness to His proFises especelly

made in regard to tathang, or gavang

onetenth.

That same year, Mr. Kerr, with a very

small capital but with strong faith in

God‘s tithing promises contained in Malachi

3:10-12, organized the firm known

as the Kerr Glass Manufacturing Company,

which is one of the largest firms

selling fruit jars in the United States. The

jars were manufactured for him in San

Francisco.

At the time of the San Francisco earth.

quake, this firm was manufacturing his

fruit jars. Mr. Kerr had put practically

every cent he had in the world into this

fruit jar enterprise, and then came the

earthquake! His friends came to him and

said: “Kerr, you are a ruined man.” He

replied, “I don’t believe it; or if I am,

then the Bible is not tyue. I k.now,,God

wall not go back on Has promzses. He

wired to San FranciSco, and received the

following reply:-“Your factory is in the

heart of the fire, and undoubtedly is ,destroyed.

The heat is so intense we will be

unabtf! to find out anything for some

days.

What a time of testing this was! But

his faith in the Lord never wavered. He

believed Malachi 3:11, and stood on this

promise moved. About a week after the

earthquake and fire a second telegram ar.

rived, saying, “Everything for a mile and

a half on all sides of the factory burned;

but your factory miraculously saved.”

Mr. Kerr immediately boarded a train

for San Francisco. This factory was a

two-storied wooden building containing

the huge tanks where the glass was melted,

which tanks were kept at 2,500 degrees;

oil was used for fuel, and therefore

this building was the most inflammble

in San Francisco. The fire had raged on

all sides of this glass factory, creeping

up to the wooden fence surrounding the

building and even fire leaped around and

over and scorching it; then the flames

went beyond the building, burning every

thing in their path. However, not even

the wooden .fence was burned, nor the

building, and not a single glass jar was

cracked by earthquake or fire!

This was nothing short of a miracle of

God‘s divine power in protecting this man

who held his faith that God‘s promises

made to those who tithe would never be

broken by any circumstance.

Thus we have a concrete example that

verifies God’s promises which He made

THE VOICE OF HEALING December, 1952


to any person anywhere, anytime, to bless

that person on financial lines if he will

accurately, systematically and continually

lay aside, the tenth for the work of the

Lord.

Anyone can thus prove God’s promises.

You will always find that the blessings

of tithing will not only be financial, but

they will also be physical, mental ancl

more wonderful-deeply spiritual!

House, Springfield, Massoura.)

Psalm 34:7

“The angel of the Lord encampeth

round about them that fear Him. and

delivereth them.”

Hebrews 1:14

“Are they not all ministering spirits,

sent forth to minister for them who

shall be heirs of salvation?’’

OME YEARS AGO while in New

S York, I was delighted to be invited

to accompany some dear friends who

were motoring to New Jersey on a

short business trip. They knew that

my relatives lived near their destination

and that I should be glad to see

them. As they had little time, we packed

a few things and started immediately. We

left at four in the afternoon and arrived

in New Jersey at four in the morning.

After resting only a few hours at a hotel,

as my friend had a business appointment

at eight o’clock that morning, we got into

the car and started down town. Progress

was slow in the heavy morning traffic,

and I wondered how my friend would

ever get through. Soon he stopped in

the thickest part of the moving traffic

and, as he was getting out of the car,

said, “Here, Sister Marcley, you take the

wheel quickly. My wife does not drive.

Use-the car today and go anywhere you

wish, only come back for me at five

o’clock.”

In my delight at this opportunity of going

to surprise my loved ones, I gladly

took the wheel without giving a thought

to the heavy trafflc. I had to hurry, so

step?? on the gas I began to move

slow y, ooking for the chance to get out

of the tangle of cars. But, to my dismay,

I heard horns blowing on all sides and

saw traffic officers waving frantically for

me to move on. Suddenly I realized that

it was imposbible for me to drive through

safely. My friend seated at my side did

not at the time know of my fears. I had

never driven a car of this make, and it

was difflcult for me to handle. I did not

want to frighten her. Realizing that God

was the only one who could help me out

of my dilemma-for I was powerless to

move on-I offered a silent prayer, as

Nehemiah did when he handed the golden

cup to the king. “0 God,” I prayed, “please

take me through this traffic.” I remember

now the simple, childlike trust I put in

that prayer. Immediately I felt a touch on

my shoulders, two arms reached over

them, and two luminous hands gripped

the wheel. While my foot was feeding

the gas, those angelic hands steered the

car safely through the thick traffic; then,

making a right turn on a side street, the

car stopped at the curb, and my deliverer’s

hands vanished.

My friend had been so busy watching

what was going on about us that she did

THE VOICE OF HEALING December, 1952

not realize what was taking place. She

said to me, “How did you make it? There

was Vot a paper‘s breadth between you

and the cars that were whizzing past on

each side.”

’ I replied, “The angel of the Lord

encampeth round about them that

fear Him, and delivereth them.”

God had sent His angel to deliver.

Praise, oh, praise His precious name! A

holy hush fell upon us and we sat silently

in the car, thanking God for His mar-

velous deliverance. When we went on our

way, it was with hearts full of His pres-

ence, and rejoicing in His mighty love.

SAVES ALCOHOLIC VICTIM

“Call unto Me, and I will answer

thee, and show thee great and mighty

things, which thou knowest not.”

WAS saved and healed in Rev.

I Raymond T. Richey’s fist revival

in Beaumont in 1926. I saw as great

miracles then as I have ever seen and

was inspired by Brother Richey to be-

lieve God when He said, “Call unto me,

and I will answer thee, and show thee

great and mighty things, which thou

knowest not.”

Following this revival I received the

Baptism of the Holy Spirit and soon aft-

er, while in prayer, the Holy Spirit very

graphically gave me a vision of. Christ

dying on the Cross. I was surprised at His

looks, when I was suddenly face to face

with a young, handsome Jewish man, of

strong build, nailed to a cross in awful

anguish, His blood streaming down. It

was warm and I was so close to Him I

could smell it. Oh! the look of agony He

gave me!

I went out from this vision to win the

lost. God soon called me to work in Beau-

mont’s red light district. The love of

Christ, through me, soon drew the girls

to love me. There was one girl, however,

who would never look at me or talk to

me. She was pretty, except for her blon-

deened hair. She was a sot drunkard.

Sometimes when I went down there her

little room would be locked, and I would

know that she had gotten so wild in

drinking that they had put her in jail un-

til sober. She would soon be back again

on the horrible job. One day out of a

heart of love I said, “Oh honey, why don’t

you love me like the other girls do? I am

your friend.” She said, “Mrs. Crosby, I

know that you really love us girls, and

I will tell you why I don’t want to talk

to you so you will understand. I am wor-

ried enough now about going to hell with-

out some religious person talking to me

about it.” I said, “Oh but Dear, you don’t

have to go to hell. Jesus died for you!’

She said she knew that but added, f‘I have

been here since I was 11, supportmg my

old parents and a little orphan nephew.

I don’t even know how to do any honest

work and am an alcoholic now. I began

drinking to forget and now no one would

want me and I am hopeless and must stay

here in this horrible life until I die and

go to hell forever. I cannot let my par-

e?ts down.”

I went to the prayer room and fell down

before Jesus. My heart was broken for

her and, as I prayed. the precious Holy

Spirit prayed through me with groanings

that I could not utter. Strangely, a vision

came before me of this girl with beauti-

Soon after, a skilled laborer fell in love

with and married her (most of these girls

to a tent revival and were both converted.

This girl has the Baptism of the Holy

“GREAT REJOICING” MANSFIELD SEES MIRACLES

By Rev. James E. Andrews,

Pastor, Assembly of God.

Bucyrus, Ohio

OUR THEME WAS “Jesus, mighty to

save.” In the power of that Name

devils feared and fled.

Brother Gardner had kissed the oracle

of heaven. His messages poured forth as

sweet oil upon the audience in light and

perfection. Sinners with eyes bejeweled in

tears, sparkled with hope as they walked

the rugged hill of Calvary to bathe their

troubled spirits in the faith of their

Saviour, whose precious blood upon God’s

Holy altar made atonement for their

souls, received the Father’s kiss of peace

and were reconciled to Him.

Some two hundred and fifty sinners and

backsliders found the promise was not

vain, and became radiant in proclaiming

their newly found joy, others rejoiced in

the sweet influence of the Holy Spirit in

Baptism. God’s power was present to heal

the sick and great was their rejoicing.

The Fellowship was a grand piece of

team work. It was easy to work, pray

and believe, and our prayer is, that God

will bless our esteemed Brother and send

him back into our midst again.

HE VELMER GARDNEX PARTY

T held a three-week campaign for

us in Mansfield, Ohio, in May. Growth

in attendance and interest was manifested

each night. Souls were won to

Jesus at each service. The Lord Jesus,

Himself, stood in the midst when

prayer was offered for the sick.

As the meeting progressed, it was not

uncommon to hear people in the stores

and on the streets talking of the great

tent revival. Several specific testimonies

of healing have come to my attention. A

few follow:

A small boy was kicked in the head by

a mule. He was prayed for at the meeting,

but soon became so much worse that

his parents took him to the hospital. The

doctors told the family that the nerves

in his head were dead, that meningitis of

the brain and lock-jaw had set in, and

that there was no hope for him. The

child’s pastor, with Brother Gardner, went

to the hospital in the night to pray again.

By morning the little fellow was sitting

up asking for food, and is now home well.

A lady from the First Christian Church

returned to the platform after prayer to

testify that she was immediately healed

of deafness in one ear, having been deaf

for thirty years.

A deaf mute, twenty years old, heard and

spoke for the first time in her life.

A man whose arms were paralyzed

from a tetanus shot, who had been told

that he would be in that condition for at

least three months and would possibly

never recover, after being prayed for by

Brother Gardner, was driving his car in

less than a week, fully recovered.

A lady, who has since the revival been

attending our church, testified to healing

of a rupture; another of healing of a

goiter. Also, a naembcr of OUT ch~rch, who

had been deaf in one aar for masy years

testified that, as lie stood in service one

night, his deaf ear popped open.

Brother Gardner’s anointed preaching

lifted the faith of believers and revived

many cold Christians. A great wave of

revival power is cresting in our city, as

a result of this wonderful revival.

PERILOUS TIMES

We axe living in perilous times. There

are wars and rumors of wars, and judgment

is coming. This is the generation

which shall see all things fulfilled. When

Christ in Matthew 24, spoke of His Coming,

the Cross was taking Him away, and

the Gospel age was coming on. During

that time the Holy Spirit was to come

and make the people ready-for the, Second

Advent. It will be the most glorious

time of all. when Jesus shall come the

Second time in ‘power and glory, to receive

His church.

Recently I’was told that many of the

Jews returning to Palestine had been

reading the New Testament for the first

time, They say, “If Jesus is the Messiah,

let Him perform the sign od a prophet

and we will accept Him.” I pray that

when God permits me to go to Jerusalem,

that His power will come down as it has

here in America and in other countries.

Jesus can prove that He is a Prophet, and

can do those things that He did back there

that will sweep literally tens of thousands

into the kingdom of God. Recently I

learned that the six-pointed Star of Da-

vid-some say it is the oldest flag in the

world--is flying over Jerusalem tonight,

for the first time in 2500 years. The Jews

are the Fig Tree that Jesus spoke of in

Matthew 24. We know that this genera-

tion shall not pass away until all these

things be fulfilled. For we are the only

generation that has seen the Fag Tree

putting forth its buds. I believe that this

generation shall see Jesus Christ come

the Second time in glory and majesty.

When we see the unrest, strife, unset-

tled peace, men’s hearts failing them for

fear, perplexing times, distress between

nations, all these things coming to pass,

then it behooves us as in the days of

Isaiah, to look up and say, “Watchman,

what of the night?” In the days of old,

the watchman, when it was dark, climbed

the steps, went into the tower and checked

the time by the stars as they passed. I

can imagine in the city of Jerusalem, in

Isaiah’s time, a man on a warm night. He

can’t rest; he’s longing to see morning

come, and he cries out, “Watchman, what

of the night?” I think that applies today.

Men and women are living under the pres-

sure of sin and its power, the devil de-

ceiving them; there is a running to and

fro, men’s hearts failing them for fear,

looking for those things coming upon the

earth, and seeing God’s Bible being ful-

filled-again they cry out, “Watchman,

what of the night? What time is it? When

will the morning come?” The watchman

cried back, “The morning cometh, and

the night also,

DIVINE JUDGMENT NEAR

It is time that we were crying out,

“What of the night?” Distress is upon

the land. Communism is sweeping over

the earth and there are wars and rumors

of wars. They are talking of peace, peace.

But when they say, peace, then cometh

sudden destruction. The world is ripe for

destruction. When people refuse to know

the truth, when they turn their back on

the things of God, and call the power of

God superstition and want a form of re-

ligion, I think it is time to have an old-

fashioned God-sent revival like. in the

days of Elijah. Elijah looked up into the

heavens three years and six months, and

said, “The whole sky looks like brass.”

Brass is a symbol of judgment. The braa

en altar, the brazen serpent-the serpent

itself was sin, and the brass, spoke of Di.

vine judgment. Divine judgment was upon

Israel because they were an unbelieving

people that .had turned their backs upon

the true, livzng God and went to worshap

ping pagan gods and idols.

A SEPARATE PEOPLE

What we need these days is a good old.

fashioned Holy Ghost meeting-a digging

down and scrubbing up. The Bible warns

us to beware lest a root of bitterness

spring up. Down in the country where I

and he becomes a new creature in Christ.

Jesus.

In the Old Testament, Elijah was get-

ting reaay for a revival. What was the

first thing that he did? He told the peo-

ple to call all their id01 worshippers to

the mount. He then said, ”If the Lord be

God, follow him; but if Baal, follow him.”

(I Kings 18.91) We have that same chal-

lenge tonight. What made Communistic

Russia what she is today? Because those

that professed religion were no different

than those of the world. They got sick

and tired of their gods and their taking

the people’s money and giving them noth-

ing in return. Elijah said, “Come up here,

you prophets of Baal, and you prophecy

. . . and let the God that answers by fire,

be God.”

GOD’S POWER AVAILJWH

It seemed funny to Ahab-Elijah stand-

ing there against all those Baal prophets.

Ahab trusted in his sword, his army and

his gods. Let me tell you something bro-

ther, the nation that will trust in its ar-

mor instead of God-cursed be that na-

tion! I can see David and Goliath stand-

ing out on that hillside; Goliath had all

the advantage over David. He was a war.

rior, he had his armor, his shield, and

his spear. He said that he was the big-

gest man among all of them, and no man

could whip him. That is just about the

attitude of the nations today, when they

get themselves all armored up with jet

planes and atomic bombs. But there came

little David against Goliath. Saul said,

“Thou art but a youth, and he a man .of

war fzom his youth.” David answered

Saul, . . . Thy servant kept his father’s

sheep, and there came a lion, and a bear,

and took a lamb out of the flock: And I

went out after him, and smote him, and

delivered it out of his mouth: and when

he arose against me, I caught him by his

beard, and smote him, and slew him.” He

went on to tell Saul that if God gave him

power over these, how much more would

He give him pwwer over the uncircum-

cised PhiZistine.

I’d rather trust God and have none of

man’s armor at all when atomic bombs

start falling in the world! David walked

out and let them put Saul’s armor upon

him. You can imagine the young lad with

Saul‘s seven-foot armor. That’s the way

they send a preacher out today. They

take him down to the seminary and em-

balm him first. You know these old cold

churches remind me of a morgue, with

a lot of dead members in them. Then the

ecclesiastical preachers put some sort of

embalming fluid in them, and they stay

dead too.

I can see David out there with his great

big-old armor on, and I can imagine him

saying, “I don’t know anything about this

thing; I have not proved it.” I wish there

were more to prove their experience. Sal-

vation does not come by knowing geology,

but by knowing kneeology. I can see Da-

vid as he walked out there, and how the

giant said, “Do you mean that you have

come out here to fight me? ... 1’11 give

your flesh to the fowls of the air, and the

beasts of the field.” David replied, “You

have come with a shield and a spear and

a sword, but I am coming in the name of

the God of Israel.” The most powerful am-

munition in the world is the mighty name

of the Lord Jesus Christ! We find in the

story that little David ran out with a

sling and picked up five rocks, put them

in his sling and went out to meet the

Philistine. Five rocks, five fingers to sling

it amund. , . . J-E-S-U-S . . . F-A-I-T-H.

There it goes winding round and round.

And when David turned. it loose, it hit

the target and the Philistine fell dead

on the ground.

REBUILD ALTARS

When Elijah said, “Gather your peo-

ple out now; we’ll see who is God,” he

rolled him up twelve stones. One stone

was €or each tribe of the children of

Israel. And he repaired the altar of the

Lord that was broken down. If ever the

altar of the Lord needs repairing, it is to-

day. The beer, the card tables have taken

the place of the old-fashioned altar. The

Methodists and the Baptists ought to do

the same thing-repair the altar of the

Lord in their homes. America will not be

saved unless she rebuilds the altar in her

homes.

We see perilous times coming. Trouble

is on every hand. When we were in Fin-

land they told us, “Look out America: it’s

coming your way.“ They told us about jet

planes and underground hangars even on

their borders. Trains that ran through

that area had to have their windows

blacked out. There may be a time in Am-

erica when a million people will be killed

in a few minutes time. Judgment is at

hand. God does not destroy. God pre-

serves. But man through his knowledge

destroys himself.

In the garden of Eden there were two

trees; one was the Tree of Life, and the

other was the Tree of Knowledge of Good

and Evil. When man leaves the tree of

Faith and eats from the Tree of Knowl-

edge, he brings destruction to himself. It

is time to call out, “Watchman, what of

the night?” As the watchman of the Bible

climbed the tower to watch the stars, to

tell the time of night, so we have a watch-

man who has climbed the ramparts of

heaven, and has sat down at the right

hand of God. Our Watchman is Jesus

Christ, and He tells us that the night is

coming.

CARRIED ABOVE THE STORM

Sometime ago I was out in Colorado in

the mountains, watching an eagIe. The old

eagle was taking her little ones from the

nest. She got her wings all set, and with

the little eaglets mouths in their mother’s

wings, she flew down to a green, grassy

field. The little ones began. running

around. chirping, and eating grass and

having a good time. The old mother went

right straight to the highest peak she

could get to and she just sat there. She

watched, looking everywhere to see if

there were a coyote or any other ani-

mal .that would cause them harm. Aft-

er awhile, she drew up her big head. (I

was watching through binoculars.) Some.

thing was wrong; she was restless. She

could smell a storm coming in the dis-

tance. Those northers come very fast. She

threw up her big wings and flew down

to the valley, to warn her little ones of

the coming storm. Friend, Father is

watching over us. He is watching the

Church to protect it and to take it to be

with Him whea the storm breaks.

Christ has said, “I give unto you power

to tread on serpents and scorpions, and

over all the power of the enemy: and

nothing shall by any means hurt you.”

(Luke 10:19) But there are many today

that deny the power of God. The word

says that it would be so; people would be

highminded, heady, lovers of pleasure

more than lovers of God . . . having a

form of godliness, but denying the power

thereof . . . From such turn away.” Now

when that bird saw that storm, she spread

her wings, let out a terrible scream, and

down to earth she came. The little eagles

put their feet on her big wings, and went

straight into the face of the storm, then

ran into the shelter of the rock. I began

shouting and praising God. I thought, yes,

Jesus sits watching over His little flock,

and one day there will come a storm

sweeping over the land. When ttie great

persecutfon comes, and judgment falls

upon the earth, then Jesus shall m e

upon the wings of glory, and we can flee

to the Rock in the time of trouble. Halle-

lujah! “Watchman, watchman; what of

the night?” He said, “The morning cometh

and the night also.” It is always the dark-

est before the dawn. There is night just

before the break of day. It is usually the

darkest time when the stars shine the

brightest. The early risers are the ones

who see the morning star! Jesus Christ

is the Morning Star! The Bible says that

“He that oveyFometh lyill be given the

Morning Star. (Rev. 2.96-28)

By Wm. A. .Ward

Excerpt from A Ohristmas Sermon by

Evangelist William A. Ward

HEN the angels sang they fur-

W nished man with the silver key

which can lock up all his worries, and

open the door to the temple of cheer.

When the angels sang they placed a

gleaming ladder of melody which

stretches from earth’s deepest misery

to heaven’s highest enjoyment, and

they gave to man God’s organ: full of

high, hply, aspiring, triumphant notes

of adoration and praise. When the angels

sang they reminded us of creation’s

dawn, when the morning stars sang together,

and the Sons of God shouted for

Joy; and they gave songs in the night,

making Christ, the song of the adolescent;

Christ, the song of the adult; Christ, the

song of the aged.

The world has made a noble effort to

catch this song of heaven. Handel, Bach,

Mendelssohn, Watts, and Weslev are a

part of that great numbcr zoho have

tuned their ear to the heavenly chorus.

Paradoxically, too, men can sing better

than angels, for although music does not

come from broken strings, it comes superbly

from broken hearts. Poor, deaf

Beethoven, in penury, brightened the

world; friendless, misunderstood Mozart,

whose funeral was attended only by the

undertaker, lifted men on wings of melody

to God.

Therefore, we have not only the Gloria

of the Angels, the Magnificat of Mary,

the Nunc Dimittis of Simeon, but the

music of Luther’s Reformation, the melody

of Wesley’s Methodism, and the sing

ing of the present day church. For, since

Christ was cradled under the soft lullaby

of the angels no church has been without

it8 song. As the Angels shook silver song

over the midnight hills of Jerusalem, so

the Christians of all ages have scattered

music over the wide spaces of the years,

thus placing’’ musical flowers upon the

aths and lawns of earth’s sorrowing mil-

tOllS,

.How, especially, does the Christmas mu-

sic brighten up our December days. For,

‘in this month? hope comes to us with

summer heat, in the very midst of bleak;

stormy winter: on the wings of song. De-

cember often brings dark, cloudy days,

but it also ushers in more cheer than any

other month on the calendar, because dur-

$ng its day-music reigns su reme upon

the throne in church, schoof home and

street.

Thus, there is little reason for wonder-

ment when a-man 1s converted, delivered

14

from chains of fear, and from castles of

sin, amid much singing, shouting, and re-

joicing. For the coming of Christ brings

music and song.

TEE SlLENCE OF CHRISTMAS

Yes, it was a silent night when Christ

was born, and the men had to journey

down that Bethlehem road by faith. There

was no outward display of salvation after

the angels left the scene; there was noth-

ing but silence. Many poems and songs

emphasize that stillness which followed

upon the sacred introduction of Christ-

mas: “Oh little town of Bethlehem, how

still we See thee lie”; “The world in

solemn stillness lay to hear the angels

sing”; “Holy night. Silent night.” Today,

we must re-enter that sanctorium sanctum

of stillness, for the momentum of the

years has speeded up our form of worship.

“Oh where‘s the road to Bethlehem?

And who wzll lead me there?

The wise men, when I ask of them,

In the same query share.

The shops with Christmas gifts are gay,

Where moneychangers meet

But who’s for Bethlehem today

By its dear one-way street ?

I ask the shepherds as they watch

Over their flocks by night,

But no directing word can catch

My longing to delight.

And still goes on the desperate search

For what so few have found:

In mart, or street-in home or church

Oh who’s for Bethlehem bound?

I ask the angels, and behold,

A glory fills the skies.

Once more I see, as long of old,

The star of Bethlehem rise.

Through “Peace on eartlc-good-will to

men”

It points the blessed way,

And leads our troubled heart again

To where the young child lay.”

The Christian must be fed before he

can feed others; he must receive power

before he can impart power. Therefore,

he must serve his sentence under the

scepter of silence, journeying under the

fluttering of no flag, amid the blaring of

no band, but “walking in the light” of one

shining, silver-dusted star.

This school of silence will deepen the

Chrkthn’s sympathy; broaden his under-

standing; lengthen his kindness; heighten

hia grntstue; and shorten hk criticism.

Than, he unll learn that when a21 h-zs

hopes are sealed in a awlesa sarcophagurr

his dark sky; and when a sinking sun of

sorrow shuts the golden gates of his day,

it only brings into prominence the glittering

diamond of a star created for one purpose:

to take him to JESUS.

He was to be the people’s Christ, not

isolated by royalty and palaces, in order

that He might share their sorrows and experience

their privations. He was born in

a stable that He might make it a sane

tuary, amid trouble that he might make it

a throne; He was born in the midst of

dirt in order to cleanse it, in the midst of

pain that He might relieve it, in the midst

of darkness in order to brighten it, in

the midst of pover,ty that He might overcome

it, and in the midst of sin in order

to redeem it.

Yes, “Born in a BARN,” that all people

might find Him. But, you say, “I cannot

see Him.” It is because you are looking

too high. The sign was “Ye shall find the

Babe among the lowly, lowing cattle.”

Get down, down upon your knees, and

gaze into a manger: HE IS THERE! Does

it conflict with your cultured creeds to

learn that Christ was cradled in a cattle

crib? Well, friend, the Lord of heaven

was only teaching us the lesson that the

barest necessities were sufflcient for Him:

and that when we stoop the lowest we

reach the highest.

Let us continue to lay our gifts of grati.

tude at the feet of this Holy One, for

there is a world to be redeemed, where is

the redeemer; a world to be aroused,

where is the prophet; a world to be healed,

where is the physician; a world to be

brightened, where is the artist; a world

to be protected, .where is the shepherd; a

world to be encouraged, where is the

musician? This BABE in a manger is the

answer. This Christ Child: the church

needs Him; the school needs Him. the

state needs Him, humanity needs Him,

YOU NEED HIM. So when your spirit

starts to sink as a sunset at sea, stay before

the shrine of a sure Saviour until

the smiles and songs start up in your soul.

Then, the bells of worship will ring in

the steeple of your soul.

He has come 60 solve every problem,

smooth every path, meet every emergency,

assuage every grief, deliver from every

temptation, and forgive every sin. I

THE SEQUENCE OF CHRISTMAS

The She herds returned singing because

they someiow knew‘ that this Bethlehem

Babe would some day open the eyes blinded

by sin; unstop the deafened ears; and

still the souls unseated by the reign of

powerful passion and fevered ambition.

Thus, the world full of sufferers would

learn to know that Christ is the healer;

the world full of famine stricken peoples

would discover that He is the Bread of

life; the world of error and deceit would

find that He is the truth; and the world

full of lost millions would soon know that

He is the way, the right way, the only

The Shepherds returned praising and

glorifying God because they had surren-

dered to the Christ Child. Let us, also fol-

low their example and surrender our lives.

What was it the angels sang? Unto US

God. This heavenly Christ is not only for

the rich, the educated, the cultured, but

unto US, all of US: He is the light.of the

world whch is tu illuminate our night of

perennial darkness. He will give us char-

ity for criticism.

HE WORD “HEALTH” occurs

T only twice in our New Testament

(Acts 27:34 and 111 John 2) where

it represents two different Greek

words. The second reference surely

expresses one of the loveliest birthday

wishes we can imagine - “Beloved,

I pray above all things that thou

mayest prosper and be in health, even

as thy soul prospereth.” The same word,

meaning to be sound, healthy, well, is

translated “whole” in Luke 5:31 and 7:10,

where the idea of physical health is clear.

The other reference takes us into the

vivid description by Luke of the disastrous

voyage to Rome in which he accompanied

Paul. Amid howling winds,

driving rain, leaden skies, on a doomed

ship, and surrounded by despairing men,

God‘s servant says “Take some meat: for

this is for your health”-and then proceeds

to eat some bread, after he had

given God thanks, before them all .

“Then were they all of good cheer.” in’

this case the word is that important word

“soteria” that keeps on recurring throughout

the New Testament. In 40 instances

it is translated “Salvation.” The verb

“sozo” is translated “save” no less than

92 times. So we might think of Paul saying,

“Take some food, for this is for your

salvation.” And so, physically, it proved

to be.

I am indebted to J. A. C. Mzwray in the

BRITISH WEEKLY. for a refreshing reminder

that “soteria” can be translated

gotten only shadow, if you have desired

class and received only glass, if you have

desired things sacred and arrived ht

things only secular, then, you need JESUS.

Years ago. when my father was an

evangelist. tic conducted a two-week re-

vival mce:ing in a large Eastern peni-

tentiary. On the last day, he went to the

Warden and asked if there was any man

in the prison who had not heard him

preach. The Warden said, “Yes, there is

one man in the prison who has not heard

you, he is the worst criminal in the his-

tory of the state. He has killed six men

that we know of, and he is in solitary con-

finement. He dies on the electric chair in

three days.” My father asked for permis-

sion to go down into the cell to preach to

that man. But, at iirst, permission was

denied him. FinallS, after much persua-

sion the Warden not only permitted him

to go, but to take has LWO week old baby

with him.

When Dad went into that cell with his

baby, the prisoner leaped toward the

baby, and looked at the walls and floor

“health,” and “soxo” to heal or to save.

Furthermore, he points out the very in-

teresting and suggestive fact that John

Wycliffe (19201384) who gave us the very

first translatzon of the New Testament

into the English tongue, ALWAYS ren-

ders the word “health” instead .of “sal-

vatwn.” Some of the passages shine with

new significance by this translation as,

for instance, the story of Zacchaeus (Luke

19:9) “This day is health come to this

house.” Or Paul’s great testimony in Ro-

mans 1:16 “I am not ashamed of the Gos-

pel of Christ; for it is the virtue of God

unto health for believers.” Working in

the opposite direction we can render Luke

8:36-“By what means he that was pos-

sessed of the devils was saved,” or Acts

14:9 where Paul perceived that the crip-

ple had faith to be saved.

This enriching bit of Bible study all

adds up to the one important truth that

when we speak pf “salvation” we ought

not limit it to the soul, but should under-

stand that it includes a gracious place

for the present needs of the body too;

and when we speak of “healing” in evan-

gelism we rightly include it as a part of

full salvation. When we announce an

“evangelistic AND healing campaign” wc

are making an almost unnecessary dis-

tinction from the point of view of scrip-

tural terminology, although it may wisely

avoid confusion in popular thinking if we

keep them separate. But from a biteral

standpoint on New Testament language

a divine healing meeting is very richly

as though he would love to dash the

child‘s brains out against the sides of the

cell. But, quickly my father thrust his

son into.the hands of the criminal. and

said, “Sar, I understand that you only

meeting means that.my whole spirit and

soul and body can be graciously saved

and sanctified.

The same rich truth is affirmed when

our Bibles speak of us being “made

whole.” To he healthy is just to be whole.

“Whole” comes from the Old English

root “Halig,” from whence “Haelth”

which is just our modern word “Health”

with a transposition of vowels. We still

speak of healthy people, particularly old

people, as being “hale,” that is-robust

and vigorous. Of very helpful significance

is the fact that from the same root-word

“Halig” we get our word “HOLY” (Ger-

man, “Heilig”). Rightly understood to .be

“holy” is just to be in robust and vig

omus health of soul and spirit. Scriptural

holiness is not that rather sickly, ascetic,

white-faced, negative quality that so often

it is wrongly imagined to be. To be holy

in God’s sense is to be living a full life,

red-blooded, active, strong and healthy in

perfect obedience to the law of the Spirit

of life in Christ Jesus.

your life. You are young and inexperi-

enced. If you take this step you will re-

gret it as long as you live.” Listening to

his voice I yielded. He pleaded for the

chance to show me wherein these people

were wrong. All afternoon I sat with him

in his study, and when I left he had given

me half a suitcase of books that I prom-

ised to read. I did not go to the prayer

meeting. That was the turning point of

my life. With all my heart I believe that

God led me to Spokane so that I might

step through the open door into the glori-

ous experience that I am enjoying today,

but I listened to the voice of a modern-

ist, and by my own act I closed the door.

I foolishly turned my back on the Cross

and started along the trail that led to the

labyrinth of modernism.

I very soon got to the point where I

could explain every religious emotion

from the standpoint of psychology. The

result of it all was that I drifted down

the long highway that led to modernism.

I never gave an altar call-never led a

soul to Jesus-never preached the glory of

the born-again experience. I was spirit-

ually blind, leading my people into the

ditch.

The years marched swiftly by. Method-

ist pastorate followed pastorate. Slowly

and surely I was climbing the rungs of

the ladder to what my ministerial breth-

ren called success. I began to be in de-

mand as a speaker in churches through-

out the countryside. I commenced to em-

phasize the social ethics of Jesus. How

my heart grieves when I contemplate

those days that might have been filled

with so much good for God, and yet, aft-

er all, they were so empty. After a while

I reached the place where my godly pre-

siding elder had to take me to task for

some of my modernistic utterances. I be-

gan to feel the restraining, binding in-

fluence of the Methodist Episcopal Sys-

tem. I made up my mind to sever my con-

nection with Methodism and branch out

into the broader field that the Congrega-

tional Church offered me.

After a ‘time in Alaska, I took a pas-

torate in Santa Rosa. Then came the call

to Oakland. I became a popular type of

preacher. I was appointed a “Four Min-

ute Man” and used to speak from every

theater stage in the city, during the days

of World War I. My work brought me a

letter from Woodrow Wilson, then Presi-

dent of the United States. I belonged to

five , fraternal organizations. For many

months I was on the stage during the

week and in the pulpit on Sunday.

LODI, CALIFORNIA

Then I moved to Lodi, California, a

beautiful town of Northern California. I

was pastor of the First Congregational

Church. It was a wonderful church, with

wonderful people. Sickness came into my

home, and when all my own funds were

gone battling it, that church loyally took

up the burden and gave me more than

was needed. I was presented with two au-

tomobiles while there. I greatly enjoyed

my pastorate.

LIGHT FROM HEAVEN

It all began when a good brother came

running across the lawn outside the par-

sonage to meet me one summer day. His

eyes were fairly dancing and on his face

was the joy of heaven itself. Clasping my

hand, he said, “Brother Price - Halle-

lujah! -Hallelujah!-Praise the Lord!” I

gazed at him in amazement. Expressions

like that were not usual in my church.

Throwing back my head, I commenced

to lau h. Still clasping my hand, he said,

“Hallefujah-I have been to San Jose and

I have been saved-saved through the

16

Blood. I am so happy I could just float

away.”

It amused me. The more I ridiculed

him the more vehement he became in his

testimony. I then discovered that some

more of the members of my church had

contacted that meeting and were loud in

their praises unto God. Slowly a bitter

antagonism commenced to creep into my

heart. They told me of a great campaign

where thousands were saved and thou-

sands were being healed. Inserting an ’ad-

vertisement in the paper that I would

preach the following Sunday on “DIVINE

HEALING BUBBLE EXPLODES,” I made

my way down to San Jose, armed with

pen and paper to take notes. I intended

to return the following Sunday and blow

the whole thing to pieces. As I neared

San Jose, a peculiar feeling came over my

mind. Across the street was a huge sign,

with the words, “Auspices of William

Keener Towner.” I could scarcely believe

my eyes. Dr. Towner had been the pas-

tor of the First Baptist Church in Oak-

land, and on more than one occasion we

had gone into the theater together. He

was a splendid man and kind, but I knew

that he was not the type of preacher to

back an old-fashioned Holy Ghost revival

meeting.

Going to the very edge of Town I found

a huge tent seating approximately 6,000

people. To my utter amazement it was

packed and a great crowd was standing

around the outside.

QUESTIONINGS

I glanced down the aisle. Walking up

toward me I saw my old friend, Dr.

Towner. Standing on my tiptoes and wav-

ing my hand, I called across, “0, Bill,

0 there Bill!” We were intimate friends

enough to call each other by our given

names. His dear face broke into a wreath

of smiles. Rushing over to me he grabbed

my hand. “Charlie Price,” he said, “well

HalleluJah! Glory to Jesus!-Praise the

Lord.” My jaw dropped. A look of amaze.

ment came over my face.

Looking into my eyes with a serious

expression he said, .“Charles, this is real.

This littIe woman is right. This is the real

gospel. I have been baptized with the Holy

Ghost. It is genuine, I tell you. It is what

you need.” He shook my hand and left

me, promising to see me later.

Once again in an advantageous posi-

tion, I looked over the crowd. Why there

was Ole, my old Swedish usher! During

Chautauqua days I was forced to remon-

strate with him, because of his dirty habit

of chewing Copenhagen snuff. Ole looked

different to me. He was cleaner and there

were no dark corners around his mouth.

He displayed a big red badge and said,

“Hallelujah! Praise the Lord Jesus! I ban

an oosher.”

Mischievously I said, “Where is the

snuff, Ole?”

Back he came at me with, “Hallelujah,

I ban saved; I ban healed; I ban filled

with the Holy‘Ghost; I ban so full of

glory there ain’t any room for snoos.”

The folk in the crowd were beginning

to look at me in every direction. I asked

Ole to find me a seat. Ten minutes later

he came back.

“What a yob!” he said, “what a yob!

But I ban got one for you.”

I followed him down the aisle, and to

my added embarrassment, he led me to

the very front, across the long altar, then

pointed to a chair that was empty in the

section reserved for cripples. That was

where I belonged, but I did not know it

at the time. All the way down the aisle I

could hear people mentioning my name.

My face turned red. One good sister said

in a very audible tone of voice, “Praise

the Lord, here comes Dr. Price. I hope

he gets something.”

Brief accounts of outstanding healing revivals here and there

THE SPIRIT OF GOD

SUBDUES WITCHCRAFT

(Numbers 83:83)-Kitty Villas$?.

Demerara. By George Buly, Bratzsh

Guhna, South American Fz& Gospel

Mission

ANY BLACK people in and about

M Georgetown have heard of or

know “Da-Da.” “Da-Da” is a witch.

She may call herself by many fancy

titles but she is plainly, a witch. Is it

a husband you want? She will arrange it

for you; is it a rival you want removed?

She will guarantee that too. eve potions,

poisons, drugs and fortune-telhng are her

specialty. Very few will doubt that she

is clever.

The fact that “Da-Da” can practice such

things illegally and not be prosecuted

may surpase some people, but not when

they know school-teachers, civil-servants,

etc., are among her patrons..She is feared

by superstitious folk. She is reputed to

have “put many down.” This is a local

term meaning to put people down into

their graves before their time.

When I heard about this evil woman,

I felt that, as a servant of God, I ought

to warn her of God’s judgments against

those who do such things. I was given the

name of the street where she lived but

not the number of the house.

I had difficulty in locating her, as the

street was over two miles long. It began

in Georgetown and finished in a village

just outside the city. However, I went

down the street and asked the first person

I saw where “Da-Da” lived. He was

able to tell me immediately. I was then

about a mile and a half from her house.

When I reached the house, I found it

stood on stilts. I climbed a steep staircoay

and knocked on the door. A little colored

woman opened the door and, when she

saw I was white, she was scared. I told

her I wished to see “Da-Da.” I was shown

into a large room with bare boards but

very clean. A number of young women,

Negro, East Indian and mixed-blood, sat

about sewing and an elderly Negro woman

squatted on the floor. This ’was the

person I wanted to see.

“Da-Da” looked at me through bleary

eyes. She had a curious look, as though

she had been doped. She looked a curious

figure, squatting on the floor, with a

sprig of fresh parsley stuck in her black

fussy hair. Coming to the point immediately,

I told her the object of my call,

and asked to speak to her alone. She sent

the young women away to adjoining

rooms. She asked my name, but I declined

to give it to her as I knew what evil purpose

she would use it for. She admitted

being a witch, but with the same breath

she said she had the Spirit of Christ and

believed in God.

I ogered her a Bible I had. brought .prposely

for her but she sad she dzdn’t

want it as she already had one.

When I quoted I1 Corinthians 6:14-15

s I angered her and she started shouting,

“I’ll put yo down, I’ll put yo down,” I

thought she meant she would put me

down the stairs, not realizing it was a

threat to put me down into the ground!

I did not intend to go unbl I had said

what I came to say. She rose from the

floor and went into another room and re-

turned with a pot of water with a sprig

of parsley in it, with which she began

to sprinkle the floor and me. I suddenly

realized what she was doing; she was in-

voking the water-spirits which she wor-

shipped to destroy me. The Lord gave me

Numbers 83:83 “Surely’there is no en-

chantment against Jacob, neither is there

any divination against Israel:” and I

stomped upon one of the wet patches and

said, “That’s what I think of your wa-

ter-spirits.”

The witch then showed her true nature.

She began to raise her voice again and

clapped her hands. The young women

came out of their rooms-rushing at me

to lay hands on me. One of them foamed

at the mouth and, under demon influence,

started to curse me in tongues. The Lord

led me to rebuke her in the Spirit and,

when I spoke in tongues, they a11 fell

back as though somethang had struck

them.

I took that opportunity to make my de-

parture.

Afterwards, I realized the dangerous

situation I had been in, going alone into

such a den of wickedness. (Of murse I

was not alone-Matt. 28:20.)

c‘DmDa’a is typical of many other witch-

es which abound in this dark land.

ALTON HAYES PARTY

BRINGS BLESSINGS TO

10s ANGELES

By LeRoy M. Kopp. Pastor

“LET NO MAN DESPISE THY

YOUTH, BUT BE THOU AN EXAM-

PLE OF THE BELIEVERS,” and

thanks to God, our Brother Alton L.

Hayes is a shining example in all the

Christian graces. Expressions of ap-

preciation of the ministry :and person

of Brother Hayes came from all direc-

tions as he carried forward in his

campaign against the powers of dark-

ness.

Brother Hayes’ own wonderful testi-

mony of healing and deliverance from

grave injuries resulting from a car wreck,

built up faith in Almighty God for all

things. Souls were saved, sicknesses were

instantly discerned and cast out, and

hearts responded to the mighty moving

of the power of God.

Brother Hayes’ gift of discernment is

truly remarkable. One of the outstand-

ing cases of deliverance was that of Rose-

mary Griffin, Box 35, Sta. D, Los Angeles,

whose inward goiter melted away as

Brother Hayes prayed for her. She testi-

fied that, previous to the laying on of

hands by Brother Hayes, she had diffi-

culty swallowing, but now is perfectly de-

livered. In the first night of the Alton

Hayes campaign, Carol Coates, 126 N.

Lake Street, Los Angeles, was standing

in a h e waiting to be prayed for when

Brother Hayes singled her out and told

her that the Lord had revealed that she

was suffering from a heart condition. Sis-

ter Coates then admitted that a doctor

had told her the same thing just a few

THE VOICE OF HEALING December, 1952 www.williambranhamstorehouse.com

days previous when she was takin;: a

physical examination in order to work

for a bank. Brother Hayes then .prayed

for her and she was instantly healed.

Many weeks have gone by and she pub-

licly testifies and her mother verifies that

she has no more choking or smothering

spells, and does not come home from

work tired as she used to.

As Brother Hayes always did, we also

give all the glory to Jesus, the One

who made healing possible.

Ralph and Edith Coe, both gifted of

God in the ministry of music, added

greatly to the blessinEt of the meetings,

as they sang .and played their electric

steel and Spanish guitars. Good attend-

ance prevailed throughout. We highly

commend the Hayes Evangelistic Party

to every church holding up the Blood-

stained Banner.

PETERSON MINISTRY

BLESSED OF GOD

IN W. PITTSTON, PENNA.

By Rev. Donato D’Andrea, Pasfor

West Piftston, Penna.

Rev. Homer Peterson just closed

a very successful Salvation-Healing

Campaign in West Pittston, Penna.

The beautiful new tent was pitched and

the crowds gathered; many came for sal-

vation and healing, and they did not go

away disappointed, for the Miracle-work-

ing Jesus was there in a mighty way to

meet their needs.

During the four weeks campaign we

saw the blind made to see, the deaf hear,

the lame walk and cancers go, besides

many other wonderful miracles and heal-

ings, such as: Miner’s Asthma, Spasmodic

Asthma, Ulcerated Stomach, etc.

A man 81 years old, who could not see

even to distinguish people from animals,

the next day after he was prayed for

could thread a needle.

Another man ,with a cancer on his ton-

gue, after being prayed for, spit out the

cancer the next day.

A lady who had a running sore on her

leg for more than a year was instantly

healed after Brother Peterson prayed for

her.

A child with polio, who hadn’t walked

for a year and had worn a brace for three

months, was prayed for and that same

night took off the brace and ran up the

steps. The next meeting night, he came

into the services carrying his brace.

Brother Houck, the song leader, and

Sister Blackwell, at the Hammond Organ,

were indeed blessings to all of us.

METEOROLOGICAL SIGNS

According to Great Britian’s foremost

living meteorologist, Dr. C. E. P. Brooks:

“Signs are not wanting that we are even

now in a period of climatic change which

may have vital, but. so far unpredictable,

consequences for civilization.” The Apostle

Paul, in the 8th chapter of Romans,

speaks of the time when “the whole crea-

Uon roaneth and travaileth ... waiting

for tfe adoption ... redemption” which

will take place at the appeanng of Jesus

Christ.

LAODICEAN C V C H

Dedication services were held recently

for the new $l,OOO,OOO St. Steven’s Serbian

Orthodox Church, in Alhambra,

Calif. The 500-seat cathedral was under

construction for three years. Giant bells

wei hing 3400 pounds, just received from

Holfand, have been installed. A huge 1000pound

chandelier in the center of the

church has 1200 Bohemian crystals and

200 lights, which will burn for 10,000

hours. Paintings on the altar screen are

valued at $100,000 and were done in Vienna.

The dedication service was climaxed

by 2000 guests enjoying a banquet and

holding a dance.

Revelation, chapter 3, speaking of the

Laodicean church (the last church dispensation

before Christ returns) says, “thou

sayest, I am rich, and increased with

goods, and have need o,f nzthing .....

KNOWLEDGE INCREASING

Five ears of brain-numbering work and

researci amounting to $1,000,~

- these

things combined with an unwillingness to

accept a recognized medical theory led

to the discovery of a polio immunizing

vaccine. The revelation of this welcome

discovery was made at the University of

California at Berkeley by the man who

commanded the research team, Dr. Herald

R. Cox, virus laboratory chief of the

Lederle Laboratories.

Science has apparently found the way

to mass produce a vaccine that can make

all humanity immune to poliomyelitis.

Within a short time, a year perhaps, po-

lio will be as rare as smallpox, according

to re orts. The increase of knowledge is

a dexnite sign of the last days. Daniel

E:4, “in the time of the end . , . knowl-

edge shall be \nc:ea?ed.; *

EUROPEAN VIEW

European Generals fear Russian blitz

soon, according to Karl H. von Wiegand,

INS foreign correspondent. “There is con-

siderable nervousness in oficial circles,

es ecially in the many general staffs of

dT0” said Mr. von Weigand. General

Juh, hench commander in chief of the

European central armies, declared he

“hoped” the Russians cpuld be stopped

at the Rhine. Sources in close contact

with the Belgian and some other general

stas. told me that there are reasons

for oxpectina that the Russians would

18

* * *

move before the end of this year,” said

the news correspondent.

Russia is planning another move to try

to et Berlin under the Communists, Harry

Sutz, AFL representative in Germany

and Austria, told the AFL convention. in

New York City recently, “We are asklng

the Germans to contribute men and arms

in exchange for our pledge to defend

them against the Russians. Yet every

month or so the hear a western military

or civilian lea& declare that defense

along the Elbe River is impracticable and

that we cannot set up a counter-defense

until we get to the Rhineon Germany’s

west border. This sug ests to Germans

that they are to be use8 only for a delayin

action with their cities, recently rebuqlt.

being left to the mercy of the Russians,”

said Mr. Rutz.

A careful reading of the 38th chapter of

Ezekiel shows that Gomer (Germany)

will be under the rule and control of Gog

(Russia) in the end-time of this dispensation.

The Rhine River was the bounday

of the old Roman empire across Europe in

Bible days, and thus it is destined to again

play a very important role in the fulfillment

of prophecy in this day as we look

for the appearing of the Lord Jesus Christ.

* * * * *

OUTLOOK IN THE MIDDLE EFT Once again we refer to the Middle East

because of its strategic place in Bible

prophecy in the last days. “The real danger

spot in the world today is shifting

to the Middle East,” Irving Brown, AFL

European representative, told the “1st

annual convention of the AFL in New’

York City. He specifically mentioned Iran

as he pointed out that “perhaps the whole

Moslem-Arab world will go the way of

China.” He spoke of the power of the

Communist Tudeh Party in Iran. Through

this column we have repeatedly emphasized

the imminence of the Communist

invasion of the Holy Land. plainly revealed

in the 38th chapter of Ezekiel. This

invasion will most likely start with the

Russians taking over Iran and then moving

directly into Iraq and Palestine.

* * * * *

MAN SHORTAGE

According to a recent survey in the 25

to 40 age group in Germany there are 300

unmarried women to one unmarried man.

The situation has become so desperate

some women have launched a share-the-

husband campaign. In Berlin there are

600,000 more women than men. Many of

the women are beautiful. Telephone num-

bers of eligible bachelors are sold for

high prices. The preferred bachelors are

United States service men. They average

15 proposals of marriage a week. In the

4th chapter of Isaiah, dealing with the

end-time, we flnd a strange prophecy

(verse 1). “And in that day seven women

shall take hold of one man, saying, We

will eat our own bread, and wear our own

apparel: only let us be called by thy

name.”

WHAT DO

In previous issues we mentioned

the tremendous influence Full Gospel

literature has in teaching and educat-

ing the people in the great truths of

the ministry of deliverance, and kin-

dred subjects. At that time we listed

books published by The Voice of Heal-

ing and by our evangelists.

This month, we shall list a few more

books we carry in stock for our readers'

faith library.

First of all we would call attention to

the books we have just stocked of Dr.

Charles S. Price, whose ministry some

years ago was the phenomenon of the

time. He spoke to audiences of many thou-

sands in all parts of the country, and sel-

dom has the church produced at any age

such an eloquent speaker. Beside his The

Story of My Life, we also have Spiritual

and Physical HeaMh, Two Worlds, The

Real Faith, Divine Intervention and Made

Alive. All these books should be in a

Christian's library.

Oral Roberts has published two books,

that have had wide circulation and are

especiall inspiring, entitled If You Need

Healing &o These Things, and The Fourth

Man. These sermons are a real cure for

fear.

Why Pray? is a fine booklet on the sub-

ject of prayer and definitely answers

that question. It is written by Mrs. How-

ard Rusthoi (Esther Kerr Rusthoi).

We also carry several books on Divine

healing written by well known authors.

There is the testimony of .Betty Baxter

whose healing was a sensation that start-

led the editor of a newspaper in Minne-

sota. and has amazed congregations num-

bering into the many thousands. This

booklet is entitled "he Betty Baxter Story.
