Jones: Is there someone here? House? Is there such a name as House? House?

Ms. House: L.M. L.M. House.

Jones: Yes, I think (Unintelligible word), I just heard House. And I refer to a church as house. Your name is House?

Ms. House: Yes.

Jones: Do you have any white boots?

Ms. House: Yes.

Jones: With white fuzz around the top?

Ms. House: Yes.

Jones: I see them, that you’d be wearing them in the wintertime.

Ms. House: Yes.

Jones: With a green coat.

Ms. House: Yes.

Jones: This [prayer cloth] will save you, by pinning these in both boots and on your green coat. This will save you a terrible fall that would have broken both of your hips.

Ms. House: Thank you, Jesus.

Jones: Right now. Spirit, the spirit of God.

Ms. House: Thank you.

Congregation: (Begins to applaud)

Jones: Now wait a minute, wait a minute. (Tape edit) I see an upright piano in your home.

Ms. House: Yes.

Jones: I want you to touch this over the sheet music also. You understand this?

Ms. House: (Faintly) Yes.

Jones: I- To rub the sheet music. And there’s a white vase with some blue-like flowers in it. A white vase that keeps blue-like flowers in it.

Ms. House: Yes.

Jones: And a red bow on it.

Ms. House: Yes.

Jones: Replace the red bow with one of these. I don’t know you. Is that correct? You’ve told no one this and all the rest, you’ve told no one here anything. Is that correct?

Ms. House: Yes.

Jones: I’ve got reason [for] what I am doing. You have a son in Oakland?

Ms. House: Yes.

Jones: Send one to him. He has an apartment house-

Ms. House: Bless his name.

Jones: On 18th Street?

Ms. House: Yes.

Jones: Um-hmm. You’re 78 years young, huh?

Ms. House: Yes.

Jones: Your husband passed in 1963?

Ms. House: Yes.

Jones: (Tape edit) When you cough, you have pain in your back.

Ms. House: Yes.

Jones: Something that seems like it wants to come out.

Ms. House: Yes.

Jones: Well, you get right to the bathroom. We’re gonna get rid of a cancer in your body, too.

Congregation: (Applause)

Jones: It’s going to take care of it. (Over congregation’s applause) And all these are for your loved ones. And that pain’s going to go, that pain’s going to go. You believe it? You believe it?

Ms. House: Yes- yes I do.

Congregation: (Cheers and applause)

Jones: It’s so good, so good. It’ll be done right now, right now, right now.


(Tape edit)

Jones: Another cancer. Gone. Pain gone now? Pain all gone now? Thank God.

Congregation: (Cheers)

Jones: There’s a cancer. Another one, gone.

Announcer: Another praising sister, whose-

(Piano plays)

Jones: (Minister’s voice) Many in the church age believe in the spiritualization of God, and as you believe in the spirit of God, in keeping with the spirit, you may be healed mentally and spiritually. (Tape edit) When you see God in the material realm, then you get healed in your physical realm. Then the deliverance comes in the physical body, freedom comes in the natural. We get freedom from poverty, from want and disease. If you apply it to the spirit of God, your spirit will be healed. And if you apply it to the mind of God, your mind can be healed. But if you apply it to the body of God, (Calls out) then your body will be healed.

Congregation: (Scattered applause)

Jones: It’s wonderful. I don’t think I have to say more about that. Those that recognize the body of God shall reduplicate that process in them. If you see the temple of the Holy Ghost, then you’ll be able to reproduce God in you.

Woman’s voice: Yeah.

Jones: Just as I am. That- (Tape edit) (Calm) You that are not familiar with this ministry, we endeavor very, very hard to see that nothing is spoken that would in any way cause embarrassment to you. And even if there was something spoken personally, it will unfold deliverance that will save your life, heal you of every known disease. And I think that that is something that you can’t find any place. But if there is something very private, we will speak it to one of the registered nurses that work without compensation, or one of the social workers, and they will speak to you, personally. Now, as our hands are clasped, let us think upon the positive. (Pause) Is there someone by the name of Catherine, something like Listen? Sounds something like that in my mind? In Los Angeles? You live someplace on 35th Street, somewhere.

Catherine: Sure do.

Congregation: (Murmurs)

Jones: I see a child. Terry. Who is this child?

Catherine: That’s um- my husband’s nephew.

Jones: George.

Catherine: That’s my husband.

Jones: You’ve spoke to no one here, have you?

Catherine: I sure haven’t.

Jones: I’m stopping a paralytic stroke in your husband. Your husband’s blood pressure would cause him to have a stroke this Wednesday, but not now.

Catherine: Oh, thank you, Jesus.

Jones: But I’m not through.

Congregation: (Murmurs)

Jones: I’m not through. (Uses glossolalia) There’s someone else by the name of Jordan.

Catherine: Yes, Lord.

Jones: This will also save their life that’s dear. They have red- red kind of condition in their eyes. There’s a breaking in their corpuscles. It will cause blindness. Just place a cloth on them, and it’ll take care of it. Now, you have trouble in your chest.

Catherine: I sure do.

Jones: You spit up blood.

Catherine: Sure do.

Jones: Can’t get your breath.

Catherine: Sure can’t.

Jones: Well, I’m going to take care of- the last you are going to spit up. We’re going to get rid of the problem. You can’t hardly walk, can’t hardly get around.

Catherine: I sure can’t.

Jones: (Uses glossolalia)

Catherine: Oh, thank you.

Jones: Your mother is suffering. She’s s- suffering in pain in her back.

Catherine: Yes.

Jones: Even now. Seventy-some years old.

Catherine: Yes, she is.

Jones: This cloth, sent across the many miles, will relive her of her pain.

Catherine: Oh, thank you, Jesus.

Jones: (Voice climbs) Now, my child, one of the nurses or- there’s a couple of them will assist you. You have cancer that is blocking you. Not only this bonical problem is developed into cancer, and it’s going to be eliminated now. And you are going to be able to move. Your heart is bad, also.

Catherine: (Sobs) Oh, thank you.

Jones: Crippled in your back, but we’re going to see the Spirit move you as easy as it would be for a breeze to move a feather.

Congregation: (Applause)

(Music begins)

Jones: Hands clasped. (Tape edit) (Calms) Let the spirit move, let the spirit move. Sister, you get- I think you’re close enough to me. Now if you will just begin to try to regurgitate, that is, to vomit. Get this up here. (Uses glossolalia) You’ve got artificial knees, and you’re walking on artificial knees, but it’s a wonder, isn’t it? It’s a miracle what can be done. Spirit, let it go, let it go, just come on up. Come on up. It is a privilege that God is here to deal in your affairs.

Congregation: (Cheers)

Jones: (Voice climbs) And I am moving, I’m condescending in your body now and loosening, I’m loosening those- those roots now, they’re coming. Now- They- They’re free. They’re free. Just spit them on up, spit them on up. The simplest thing is not impossible, but the impossible thing is just simple for God. Just let the spirit- just let it move on out- There it is. There it is. There it is.

Congregation: (Cheers and applause)

Jones: There’s the growth. There’s the growth all over the floor, all over the floor, and all over the cloth. Spit it all up. (Pause)

(Music plays)

Jones: It’s a- terrible, these- They smell horribly and they taste horribly as they loose often. Nearly always they do. (Calls out) Now child- now child, even though you’ve got artificial knees, even though you’ve been put plates, you’re going to be able to move, move fast. Now you’re going to be able to move fast, and not feel any shortage. Not feel any shortage now. It’s wonderful. (Over music – unintelligible – encourages woman to run.) (Calls out) Go with it, go with it, go in there, go with it, go with it. She was unable to get around. She- You understand, she’s walking on artificial knees. She’s walking on artificial knees. God Almighty.

(Congregation continues to sing, Jones joins and sings along periodically.)

Jones: Some of you could walk that well, and you got artificial plates, artificial knees, you couldn’t walk at all. Look at her walking now, not short of breath anymore, are you, darling? Tension all gone. That’s wonderful. Pain all gone. Cancer all gone. Spirit. Spirit so good. (Tape edit.) (Calms) Which is Rachel? Just hands clasped. Rachel?

Rachel: Yes.

Jones: Hmm?

Rachel: Yes.

Jones: Sutton, ah, means something to you. You’re from Phoenix?

Rachel: Yes, that’s right.

Jones: You’ve been told that you have a tumor on your brain.

Rachel: Yes, my God, God.

Jones: Hands clasped. The brain that which- what has it done, caused a deterioration in your muscles?

Rachel: Oh, yes.

Jones: Your legs, and you can’t walk.

Rachel: So true.

Jones: -Progressively getting worse.

Rachel: Yes.

Jones: Just as I know that there’s a white linen tablecloth in your third drawer of your chest in Phoenix, and I’ve never met you in my life, as far as I know. I never met you, have I?

Rachel: Correct.

Jones: All right. Take your hands and clasp. Do you believe? Believe. There’s a massive clot that has to be broken, has to be broken loose, in a matter of a few minutes. You got bad headache?

Rachel: Yes, I do.

Jones: And you can’t walk.

Rachel: Right.

Jones: Well, let’s start with the headache.

Rachel: (Whispers) Thank you. Thank you.

Jones: Mmm. Spirit. Spirit of God.

Rachel: (Faintly whispers) Thank you.

Jones: Spirit of God.

Congregation: (Begins to cheer)

Rachel: Thank you, Jesus.

Jones: Spirit of God.

Rachel: Oh, thank you, Jesus. (Tape edit)

Jones: Sister, I say that I can dissolve that cancer. I say that you can walk. The pain’s gone now, isn’t it?

Rachel: Yes, it is.

Congregation: (Applause and cheers)

Jones: (Calls out) Well then, stand on your feet. Stand on your feet. Stand on your feet. Get on up, get on up, get on. Quickly. Get up. Get up.

Announcer: She is struggling now to rise.

Jones: Get up, get up. Don’t- don’t touch her, brother, don’t touch her. Get up.

Announcer: She is struggling to rise.

Jones: Now, now, now, up, up, up, up.

Announcer: She’s coming up.

Jones: Up out of the wheelchair. On up, sister. I said that I took the pain, so I took the tumor that’s destroyed the brain. I took that that’s caused the stroke, I took that. I took the paralysis. Now stand up. It’s done, if you’ll believe.

Congregation: (Cheers)

Announcer: (Excited) She’s coming up, she’s up, she’s up.

Jones: Up.

Announcer: She’s now on her feet.

Jones: Up.

Congregation: (Extended cheers and applause)

Announcer: She is completely erect.

Jones: Up. Stand up. Look up, sister. Keep your eyes focused on me. Keep your eyes focused on me. (Pause) Let go of her. Get on now. Now, now, now. Keep on moving. Keep on moving. Keep on moving. Keep on moving.

Announcer: She’s coming down the aisle now, slowly.

Jones: Move. Keep on moving.

(Over congregation’s continued cheers)

Announcer: In faith, she’s stepping forward. (Pause) She’s coming forward slowly.

Jones: Come on. Come on. I’ve got two things, got a sister about to have a heart attack. So get up, quickly. Quickly, we’ve got to do a quick work, sister. Got to do a quick work. Come on, come on.

Announcer: (Excited) Oh, there she goes.

Jones: Come on. Come on.

Announcer: She is now moving quickly-

Jones: Come on. Come on. Now, now go on. Go on.

Announcer: She is now running on her own, she is now running on her own.

Jones: Straighten up, straighten up, straighten up all the way up. All the way up.

Announcer: She is running down the aisle. She is now at the back of the auditorium, running.

Jones: Keep on. Keep on. Yes, she’s got it, she’s got it.

Announcer: Out the back door.

Jones: You stay where you are. Get out of my way. There’s somebody about to die. Get out of my way.

Announcer: She went down the aisle and out the back door, she’s coming in the other door.

Jones: Get out of the way. Go on. She’s healed. There, a paralyzed woman healed.

Announcer: (Voice moderates) Down the aisle coming forward. A living testimony to the power that works through that man. She’s walking easily now, as she slowed to a walk. She walks easily.

Congregation: (Cheers and applause, clapping in unison)

Announcer: The congregation is on its feet. (Unintelligible word) Join them now, as they praise the magnificence of the living God whose power is now made manifest.

Congregation: (Singing)

Jones: (Breathless, exultant) All right. She- Her heart’s beating now. Her heart’s beating. She was there, she was there in the- she was there in the wheelchair, I mean there in the bathroom, laying on the floor, dead, no heart, but she’s beating now. Hey, God Almighty, two at the same time.

Man’s voice: Praise God.

Jones: See, some people know their God.

Man’s voice: Praise God.

Jones: I had to get that woman running fast, because there was a woman dead, dying in- on our bathroom, but the minute I got to her, the nurses said, there she is, back to life- wonderful. Heart’s all right. She’ll be out in a minute. She’s back there. That’s why I said I got to get you healed.

Congregation: (Sings and claps)

Man’s voice: Oh, God.

Jones: Keep on going, sister. There’s the woman paralyzed. Keep on going. So glad. So glad. Something to shout about.

Man’s voice: Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful.

Jones: (Unintelligible)

Announcer: She just (unintelligible) again.

Jones: She was paralyzed and now she lives. Hey, God.

Announcer: I believe she’s on her fourth lap around the congregation now. She’s a-running again. (Pause) She is really testing the healing.

Congregation: (Sings and claps)

Jones: (Singing) Almighty God/ Almighty God/ Almighty God/ Almighty God/ Yes, it’s God, Almighty God.

You’re saying- she’s saying yes. (Aside) Just sit there until I get all the cloths I want to. (Back to Esther) I see a gold carpet, something in your home with gold carpet like. Got to get this placed on you. Who is M-? Uh- Who is Rosa? M- Rosa- someone you know. See that that gets to her. This’ll prevent cancer. Sister, I don’t like the vibrations of what you’re under.

McElvane: That’s correct.

Jones: Does the dog keep looking out the window?

McElvane: Yes, he does.

Congregation: (Murmuring laughter)

Jones: You- you’ll know why I want you to be kind to little animals. They’re far more loyal to you than people.

Congregation: (Murmurs approvingly)

Jones: You say that they don’t have any souls, but I tell you another thing, I know better. Everything alive has spirit immortal. Everything will live on immortally. The best friends I’ve had in the healing work is some loyal animal that stands by beside you. (Prayerful) Spirit of Christ, come forth in all of its fullness, the anointing which is Christ. That’s all it means. The anointing. Come forth to bring protection and save this man’s life. Also stop the condition that’s even now beginning in his kidneys. (Uses glossolalia) Some of it will take some effort on your part. But if you do it, you’ll live a long life. (Deliberate) I guarantee you. Thank you.

Announcer: She has come up out of her seat now and is standing. (Pause) She is standing, and the pastor has come down from the stage, is coming up to meet her, and she down to meet him.

Jones: I’ll just give that devil (unintelligible under announcer) some sister over there trying to do work on me.

Congregation: (Applause)

Announcer: (More excited) He’s working with her up and down. Her arm’s up and down.

Voices in congregation: Yeah, good job. (Cheers.)

Congregation: (Singing and clapping)

Announcer: Hands above their heads, down to their toes, back up and back down, as she exercises those muscles and limbs which were so stiff. She is on the move.

Jones: It’s all gone now, the crippling’s gone, the pain’s all gone, she said. Get the- get her to get all these instructions. Show the glory to God, she said. She’s got reason to glory God.
