Faith is a Sense

Now, I have another sense, and that is of hearing. Strike some music of something. [The pianist begins playing--Ed.] How many believes there's music playing? Let's see your hand.

Do you see it? How many sees that music? Do you smell it, taste it, feel it? Well, how do you know it's music? [...]

What if someone didn't have the sense of hearing now in here? They wouldn't know that music is playing; that sense is dead to them. They couldn't hear it, because they can't hear.

But you who have a sense of hearing know it's playing, because you hear it. You can't see it, you can't feel it, you can't smell it, you can't taste it, but you can hear it.

Now, faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things you do not see, taste, feel, smell, or hear. But the sense of faith is just as real as your sight is or any other of your senses.

You see what I mean? You believe it, you just... There's no one can make you doubt it, because you're possessed with that sense that tells you it's so.

William Branham (Diseases and Afflictions - 1950, january)

God Almighty is still Jehovah-jireh

Atheists may rise, skeptics may stand, ages may turn, but God Almighty is still Jehovah-jireh. He can provide a sacrifice regardless of how deep you've stooped in sin, He's still Jehovah-jireh, the Lord provides--will provide a sacrifice. No matter how sick you are, how bad off you are, He's Jehovah-jireh. No matter what the doctor said, no matter what the people said, He's Jehovah-jireh, the Lord will provide in an instant time the sacrifice needed. Hallelujah. I love the Word.

William Branham (The Faith of Abraham - 11.18.1955)
