In 1946, the Angel of the Lord met him in a cave near Jeffersonville, saying, “Do not fear, I am sent from the presence of Almighty God.” He continued, saying, “Your peculiar birth and misunderstood life has been to indicate that you’re to go to all the world and pray for the sick people….If you get the people to believe you, and be sincere when you pray, nothing shall stand before your prayers, not even cancer.” One of the most popular sermons of Brother Branham telling about his experience when the angel first appeared to him is "How The Angel Came To Me," preached on January 17, 1955.
