The Family Altar
18 When the little girl died, Jairus’ daughter, the priest, said, “Come lay hands on her, and she’ll live.” But when the Roman centurion, the Gentile, said, “I’m not worthy You come under my roof, speak the word.” That’s it. See?
19 The Syrophoenician woman, Greek actually what she was, when she—when Jesus said to her, said, “It’s not meet for Me to take the children’s bread and give it to the dogs.”
She said, “That’s true, Lord; but the dogs under the table eats the children’s crumbs.”
He said, “For this saying, the devil’s left your daughter.” Say good things then. Say something good about somebody. Talk about Jesus. Say something loyal, something real. That’s the way to get rid of devils. He never said—He never prayed for the girl. He never said one thing about her being healed; He just said, “For this saying, for this saying…”
20 Hattie Wright, the other day, she didn’t ask for nothing. She was just setting there, but she said the right thing, which pleased the Holy Spirit. And the Holy Spirit spoke back and said, “Hattie, ask anything that you will, whatever you got and you want. Find out whether this is real or not. Ask anything (the healing of her little crippled sister setting there all drawed up; ten thousand dollars to keep her from digging on them hills over there; the youth restored to her well run-down body); whatever you want to ask, you ask it right now. If It don’t come and give it to you right now, then I’m a false prophet.” That’s—that’s that’s something, isn’t it?
21 Jesus said, “Say to this mountain…” And you’ve heard the—about what’s been taken place; that’s the ministry that we’re entering into. We’re way up the road now. Soon the Coming of the Lord Jesus. And we’ve got to have rapturing faith in a Church that can be changed in a moment, in a twinkling of an eye to go out, or we’ll not go. But don’t worry, it’ll be there. It’ll be there. And when the power of this church rises, it’ll bring its brethren; the power of that church rises, will bring its brethren; the power of that church will bring the other brethren; then there’ll be a general resurrection. And we’re looking forward to it.
