William Branham – False Prophet

WilliamBranhamFireHalo William Branham   False Prophet

I have decided to write this article on William Branham for 2 reasons and that is this: William Branham’s influence on the church today is nothing but a vile attack on the True Body of Christ. This article will also serve as a reference to some articles that I will be writing soon on some supposed ‘men of God’ aka ‘Prophets’ in South Africa – who claim that they have William Branham’s Mantle. Any ‘pastor’ who says that William Branham was truly a man of God or says they have anything from William Branham (mantle, angel, follows his teachings, etc) should be avoided like the plague.

Who was William Branham:

William Branham was born in 6th April 1909 in Kentucky and died on 24 December 1965. His ministry was founded in May 1946. But this legacy lives on in his followers and the hundreds of sermons that were recorded or transcribed. Most people read his sermons more than they do they bible. Most people believe William Branham’s words more than the bible. This is obviously concerning, but what is more concerning is what William Branham preached and the strange signs and wonders that accompanied him.

The young William Branham:

William Branham’s mother was 15 years of age, and his father was 18 years of age. When William Branham was born something rather unusual happened on that day – a few rays of light shone into the room and a huge halo, one foot in diameter appeared above William’s mother and baby. Because of this his mother took him to a Baptist church in the local community. That was the first and the last time he went to church in years. –Carl Dyck, William Branham: The Man and His Message (Saskatoon: Western Tract Mission, 1984), page 3.

It should be noted (and keep this in your mind at all times) that Branham’sparents both believed in fortunetelling (so they were not Christian) and this of course means that William Branham was raised in an occult environment. –Kurt Koch, Between Christ and Satan (Grand Rapids: Kregal Publications, 1962), page 150

Branham’s life was influenced by numerous visions and angelic visitations. He recalled that he heard a voice at the age of seven, “Well, I started up the lane again. And I turned to look at this again. And when it did, a human Voice just as audible as mine is, said, `Don’t you never drink, smoke, or defile your body in any way. There’llbeaworkfor you to do when you get older.’ Why, it liked to scared me to death!” –Brother Branham, taped sermon transcript, p. 24

This would not be the last time Branham heard this voice, later this voice would identify itself as an angel and later he ends up receiving extra-biblical revelation concerning future events.

William’s family and Ministry:

William Branham was influenced by a few obscure people/religions before he fully established his ministry in 1948, one of these was the ‘Jesus Only’ Pentecostals. –Brother Branham, p.39

At this time William Branham was married and had a baby daughter. Many family members and other ministers warned him not to associate with the ‘Jesus Only’ cult for this group did not believe in the Trinity amongst other thing. Branham must have broken away from then for later when his Wife and baby daughter died in 1937 from Tubercular Meningitis he attributed their deaths to the fact that it was because he had not continued in fellowship with the Pentecostals and had missed God’s will. –Brother Branham, p.47

Never the less, the ‘Jesus Only’ cult was a great influence on Branham as he adopted many of their heretical doctrines into his own.

Another influential person in Branham’s ‘doctrine to be’ was Franklin Hall who wrote on the ‘Atomic Power with God through Fasting and Prayer’. Hall had a great influence on almost all the healing revival preachers of that time, of which Branham was his best disciple, in so much that Branham’s followers believed him to be the apostle of the final Church age.

In 1946 while Branham was baptising followers in the Ohio river he heard a small voice say ‘Look up!” Looking up he saw it descending toward him – it looked like a blazing Star, a Pillar of Fire. The Supernatural Pillar of Fire hovered just above his head and that voice he had been hearing since he was little spoke out of the Pillar of Fire saying, “As John the Baptist was sent to forerun the First Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, so you are sent to forerun His Second Coming.” –Brother Branham, p.71

That was that, Branham called this his ‘charge’ – that he was called by God and soon many believed him to be Elijah. In fact when Branham passed away in 1965 due to a head injury from a car accident many of his followers (and still today, believe it or not) truly believe he came in the spirit of Elijah, some believed him to be born of a virgin, some believed him to be God and most expected him to actually rise from the dead in three days. –All Things Are Possible, p.164

Not long after Branham was told by the Pillar of Fire that he was the forerunner for the Second Coming of Christ he was visited by the voice manifested in the form of an angel. This angel told him that he had been given two gifts; the gift of healing and the gift of words of knowledge / restore biblical truth. As time went by Branham also came to believe that this angel was the source of all his visions and extra-biblical revelations as well. But of course Branham was very discerning (as he claims it was also one of his gifts) and he asked the angel why he should believe the angel to be from God and the angel told him that the people in Jesus’ day called Jesus a devil, so he (Branham) should not worry about others in his family or ministry saying the same thing about the message/angel. The angel mentioned that Branham had been told by fortunetellers in impromptu meetings that he had a special gift from God and was born under a sign. The angel assured Branham that demons had confirmed that Jesus was the Christ and he should not be concerned by testimony of fortunetellers. –Brother Branham, pp. 74, 75, 79

Well I suppose that settles it then – the angel must be from God, phewww and all this time I thought otherwise. You see in 1 John it explains very clearly what Branham was supposed to ask the angel, ‘”has Jesus Christ come in the Flesh”. I guarantee this angel would have come up with every excuse in the book to say otherwise. But then, what’s the bible anyway? eh? Just useless info…not to be adhered to.

So Branham decided to test out his new ‘powers’ and found himself confronted with a women who had cancer. Just as a matter of interest the angel told Branham about this woman in a vision. So he prayed for her and she was ‘healed’. He shot to Super Stardom over night and from then on claimed his angel was with him day and night.

Two things here; Who said she had cancer? Was there any medical proof of this and secondly who could prove she was healed? Or did Branham proclaim she was healed and everyone just accepted it? So either this was one big lie or worse we have a demon (posing as an angel of light) telling Branham about a women who has cancer, i.e., this woman’s cancer was demonically inflicted. Talk about being set up, William Branham that is, and again so much for his discernment. So Branham prays for her and she is ‘healed’. What actually happened was the demonic affliction was lifted and who knows what else this woman received in its place.

From then on William Branham’s ministry was built on supernatural manifestations and was empowered by a spirit being / angel. The angel accompanied him throughout his lifetime and even directed him in every aspect of his personal life. It was the angel Branham said gave him his power – not the Holy Spirit. In fact Branham knew that if he didn’t do what the Voice told him to do he would suffer greatly.

But if that has not convinced you even slightly that there was something horribly wrong with Brenham, lets go look at his teachings and see just how much they contradict the Word of God.

He believed he was the Last Days Prophet:

This I find rather funny because since starting my blog I have come across at least 20 others who think they are too. Who’s right? Fortunately, non of them, Branham included. Anyhow let’s stick to the story shall we – so Branham said, “Now, I’m just your brother, by the grace of God. But when the Angel of the Lord moves down, it becomes then a Voice of God to you…But I am God’s Voice to you… Now, see, I can say nothing in myself. But what He shows me.” –Footprints On The Sands Of Time, p. 214

His followers believed him to be the spirit of Elijah based on Malachi 4 and the seventh angel in Revelations 10.

Unfortunately for him and his followers, William Branham has to under no uncertain terms be labelled a False Prophet for a lot of things he prophesied did not come to pass for example: He prophesied that Jesus would return in 1977 along with the destruction of America . Branham said, “Jesus did not say no man could know the year, month or week in which his coming would be completed. I sincerely believe and maintain as a private student of the Word along with divine inspiration that 1977 ought to terminate the world systems and usher in the millennium.” –7 Church Ages, p. 322.

As we can see, Jesus Christ has not come back, America is still standing and it’s the year 2008. So you the reader have 2 choices here; 1) William Branham received this information from a lying demonic source aka his angel who’s father is Satan or, 2) God lied.

The bible says, in Deuteronomy 18 v 20-22

“20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die. 21 And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken? 22 When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.”

Branham preached the ‘Serpent Seed’ teaching:

The Serpent Seed teaching is a belief that Cain was produced through sexual intercourse between Eve and the serpent in the garden. The curse of the Serpent’s Seed he believed is the cause of all mankind’s problems and women are to blame and it is evident in their temptation of men. –William M. Branham, My Life Story, p. 19.

Branham also believe that the Serpent Seed was the missing link between man and monkey.

Hitler also believed in the Serpent Seed teaching and this was the main reason why Jews needed to be eliminated, for the Jewish nation was of Satan. Now if Hitler believed in this and Branham believed in this, and Hitler was of Satan and Branham is of God then….we have a HUGE problem here.

It is also noted that Branham despised women and on one occasion stated, “But I remember when my father’s still up there running, I had to be out there with water and stuff, see young ladies that wasn’t over seventeen, eighteen years, up there with a man my age now, drunk. And they’d have to sober them up and give them black coffee, to get them home to cook their husband’s supper. Oh, something like that, I said, ‘I…This was my remarked [sic] then, THEY’RE NOT WORTH A GOOD CLEAN BULLET TO KILL THEM WITH IT.’ That’s right. And I hated women. That’s right. And I just have to watch every move now, to keep from still thinking the same thing.” –M. Branham, ‘My Life Story’ (Spoken Word Publications, undated), p.27.

So now we can see why he was so adamant to preach this Serpent Seed teaching for he had an immense animosity towards women. This would also explain why he preached a rigid ‘moral code’ for women with regards to dressing, hair etc, etc. Branham also had a ‘revelation’ that allowed for divorce. –All Things Are Possible, p.162.

The bible says in Genesis 4 v 11;

1 “And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD.” …. not from the Serpent/Satan.

Branham believed the Zodiac and the Egyptian Pyramids are EQUAL to scripture:

So as far as Branham is concerned the Zodiac and Egyptian pyramids are equal to Scripture in the revelation of God’s Word. This might I add is also one of Franklin Halls strange beliefs that was passed onto Branham. –’Adoption’, pp.31,104.

After Branham’s death a tombstone in the shape of a pyramid was placed on his grave.

Now we know that the Zodiac and the Pyramids play a huge part in the occult. So how on earth can the occult be equal to Scripture? Witchcraft, Astrology and New Age all use the pyramids and the zodiac for divination i.e., predicting the future. The pyramids are an essential holiday spot for occultists, witches, magicians, necromancers and many a demon/spirit. The narrow passages through-out the pyramids allowed for occult soul travel were mummified Kings and other notable people were buried with gold, food and other worldly possessions in the belief that their soul would need these things in the after-life. Pyramids also have an occult alignment with the stars i.e., the Zodiac.

Let’s see what the bible says about this: Deuteronomy 18 v 9-12

“9 When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. 10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch. 11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. 12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.”

Branhman believed that ALL denominations were the Mark of the Beast:

Except for his ‘demonination’ of course which was pure. Hence if you follow anyone eles teachings and not his you are doomed. Branham believed that some humans are descended from the serpent’s seed and are destined for hell, which is not eternal, however. The seed of God, i.e., those who receive Branham’s teaching, are predestined to become the Bride of Christ. There are still others who possess free will and who may be saved out of the denominational churches, but they must suffer through the Great Tribulation. He considered denominationalism a mark of the Beast (Rev. 13:17). –Dictionary of Pentecostal and Charismatic Movements, pp. 95,96.

Branham believed he was commissioned by God to OPEN the SEVEN SEALS in Revelations:

Branham said, “I saw seven angels in the form of a pyramid that swept down, picked me up and was brought east to open the seven seals of God” –William Branham, Standing In the Gap – 63-0623.1M.

Revelations 5 v 1-10 says;

“1 Then I saw in the right hand of him who sat on the throne a scroll with writing on both sides and sealed with seven seals. 2 And I saw a mighty angel proclaiming in a loud voice, “Who is worthy to break the seals and open the scroll?” 3 But no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth could open the scroll or even look inside it. 4 I wept and wept because no one was found who was worthy to open the scroll or look inside. 5 Then one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.”

So, is William Branham saying he is the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David – Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of the One and Only Living God? It must be, because William Branham said it, and if William Branham said that God commissioned him to open the book and loose the seals then who are we to argue, I mean really, the bible must be wrong, completely wrong!

Branham believes he was the ONLY Prophet:

Branham said, “There never was in the age, any two major prophets on the earth at one time. There were many minor prophets, but there were one major prophet. And Elijah was the prophet until Elisha came. Then when Elijah was taking off, a portion, double portion, of Elijah’s Spirit, Elijah’s Spirit came upon Elisha.” –Our Hope is in God, 1951 (tape #51-0929)

Now, God always uses a–a prophet, a man. If you use a bunch of men, you get different ideas (See?); each man, two men. Never did He have two major prophets on the earth at one time. He takes one, so the other one can take its place for another day, another message. He never has two; He has one at a time.” –The Evening Messenger, 1963 (tape #63-0116)

“God always deals with one individual. Two men’s got two ideas. There never was two major prophets on the earth prophesying the same time. Look back and see if there was. No, sir. Too much scrupled up. He’s got to get one man completely surrendered and use that person. He searches for that person, but there will be one sometime, somebody who’ll listen to Him word by word.” –The Fourth Seal, Revelation of the Seven Seals, 1963 (tape #63-0321)

Many historical prophets did indeed prophesy at the same time as others. Several minor prophets did as well (e.g., Hosea & Micah; Haggai & Zechariah. Ezra 5:1,2 actually says, “Now Haggai the prophet and Zechariah the prophet, a descendant of Iddo, prophesied to the Jews in Judah and Jerusalem in the name of the God of Israel, who was over them. Then Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel and Jeshua son of Jozadakset to work to rebuild the house of God in Jerusalem. And the prophets of God were withthem, helping them.” See also, Numbers 11:25-29). In fact, some Minor prophets prophesied at the same time as Major prophets (e.g., Hosea & Micah were contemporary with Isaiah; Habakkuk was contemporary with Jeremiah). But Mr. Branham’s most obvious error was in saying that God never sent two Major prophets at the same time. Of the four Major prophets, Daniel, Jeremiah and Ezekiel were all contemporaries during the years 595-587 BC. –http://people.delphiforums.com/johnk63/1prophet.htm

The difference between Branham and the TRUE prophets of the bible were that the TRUE prophets of the bible were not confused, never presented two different ideas, never got their message ‘scrupled up’ and most importantly their words were God’s words hence they appear in the Word of God. Unlike Branham who preaches a DIFFERENT gospel.

Branham taught that God is NOT omnipresent:

Branham said, “Now, you cannot be omnipresent without being omniscient. God’s not even omnipresent; God’s omniscient. Omniscient which means – makes Him omnipresent (He knows all things). But in order to be a being He has to be in one being.” –The Masterpiece, 1964 (tape #64-0705)

“He’s [God]–He’s infinite, and He’s–He’s omnipresent, omniscient, therefore He knows all things. He can’t be present everywhere. By being omniscient, knowing all things, then He can be present everywhere.” –The Harvest Time, 1964 (tape #64-1212)

So because Branham believes that God is a ‘being’ and not ‘spirit’ he can’t be in more than one place at a time. He does however believe that God knows ‘all things’ hence He is omniscient, so it seems like God is everywhere, but He is not.

The bible says: Jeremiah 23:23-24 “

“Am I a God at hand, saith the Lord, and not a God afar off? Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the Lord.”

Branham DENIED the Deity of Jesus Christ:

Branham said; “The man, the body was not Deity, but Deity was in the body.” –God’s Gifts Always Find Their Places, December 22, 1963 (tape #63-1222)

“Jesus was not God, but He was God. He was a Man, yet He was God. He could cry, and yet He could raise the dead. He could cry for a man being dead and raise him back up again. He was Jehovah-jireh, Jehovah-rapha, Jehovah Manasses; He was Jehovah, all completely. He was Jehovah, and yet He was a Man.” –Questions and Answers #3, August 30, 1964 (tape #64-0830M)

“He was–He was Jesus when He was born. But when the Holy Ghost came upon Him after His baptism, He was anointed with God. God was in Him, ’cause He come to fulfill the Word.” –The Messiah, January 17, 1961 (tape #61-0117)

“And this little Boy, twelve-year-old Child, no wisdom at all, why, but just a twelve-year-old Boy… The Father didn’t dwell in Him at that time, because He come on the day when He baptized Him; he saw the Spirit of God coming down (See?), and went in Him.” –Paradox, February 6, 1964 (tape #64-0206B

“The Spirit left Jesus in Gethsemane and He became just a man– When God looked down upon the body… (The Spirit left Him in the Garden of Gethsemane; He had to die a man.)” –It Is the Rising of the Sun, April 18, 1965 (tape #65-0418M

Unbelievable! William Branham DENIES Jesus Christ. Anyone who says that William Branham is a man of God is deluded, deceived and follows the teachings on an anti-Christ.

The bible says, John 1 v 1-14 – The Deity of Jesus Christ:

“1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. 5 The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.”

William Branham’s unsolved mysteries:

The Seventh Seal:

Branham believed that his interpretation of the 7 seals (Revelation, chapters 5-8) was essential in preparing his followers for Christ’s soon return. He spent the week of March 18 thru the 23, 1963, “revealing” the meaning of the first 6 seals from Revelation 6. However, on the evening he was to reveal the 7th seal, he did not explain its meaning. It remains a mystery to his followers to this day.

The Seven Thunders (Revelation 10:3,4):

Likewise, Branham spoke of the 7 Thunders, but never revealed what the voices spoke.

The Third Pull:

Although not a biblical mystery, Branham created a new mystery, speaking of a future phase of his ministry which he called the Third Pull. Not only did he fail to say what this phase of his ministry would accomplish, but he never fulfilled it before his death.  –http://people.delphiforums.com/johnk63/teachings.htm#unrevealed

William Branham’s terrible inconsistencies about a man who tried to prove him to be false:

William Branham sometimes warned his listeners against testing the authenticity of his gifts. Which is odd because the bible tells us to test the spirits. Never the less Branham indeed had an active imagination and most definitely liked to instill the fear of God into his follows too NOT test him. Branham would frequently tell his congregation about a man who tried to prove him to be false by writing fictitious illnesses on his prayer card, and then would stand in the prayer line expecting Branham to correctly identify his illnesses as mentioned on the prayer card. Every time Branham told this story, the outcome of what happened to his man would change:

  1. The man received the diseases that he wrote on his card and was still suffering from them (1953).
  2. The man had died from his diseases (1954).
  3. The man was bedfast “to this day” (1956).
  4. The man ran screaming from the auditorium when Mr. Branham publicly exposed his plan (1956).
  5. The man died a year after the incident (January 1957).
  6. The man was still in “serious condition” (June 1957)
  7. The man died 6 months after the incident from cancer (1958).
  8. The man was carried from the auditorium paralyzed and is still paralyzed (1958–note that in 1956 Mr. Branham said he ran screaming from the building).
  9. The man died on the platform sixty seconds after Mr. Branham exposed him (1961).
  10. The man died six weeks after the meeting (1962).

So much for being man of God. This is called manipulation people, manipulation and lies belong in the same basket of rotten apples.

William Branham’s vision and the Cloud:

Once again it would seem that William Branham has a very over active imagination, or he just lied as went along to ‘prove’ himself to be a man of God. I have received a few emails over the last couple of months from people sending me images of this famous cloud as proof that Branham is a prophet. So I went and did some research and found out that this cloud appeared over Flagstaff which was 352 km / 219 miles from where Branham was having his vision on a mountain in Tucson. Now from what I have read it says this cloud was huge and could be seen from very very far away. However…

Branham says he was stading below it: “And now, the “Life” Magazine picked it up. And I have the–the article here this morning in the “Life” Magazine there, of the show… Now, here it is, the same time I was there. See the pyramid or the Cloud? I was standing just below this.” –William Branham, “Standing in the Gap,” TSW (sermon preached 6-23-63), 6:7, pp. 20-21

Hmmmm…. How could he be 219 miles from this cloud but yet at the same time be standing just below it…now that is a miracle!

Also Branham’s account or ‘count’ of how many angels he saw appear changed from 5 to 7 over a period of time. It changed from 5 to 7 angels so he could say these angels represented the ‘The Revelation of the Seven Seals’.

5 angels in vision on the mountain:   “And I, still in my … the two consciences together, I knew I was standing here, and I knew I was somewhere else. And I thought, “Now, this is a vision, and I must learn what this means.” And no more than the second group of birds came by, I looked to the west; and it looked like in the form of a pyramid—like two on each side with one in the top, came five of the mightiest angels I ever seen in my life. Such a terrific speed I never seen…. Their heads back and their pointed wings just sailing quickly.” –William Branham, “Reproach for the Word,” The Spoken Word (TSW), Spoken Word Publications (Jeffersonville, IN, sermon preached 12-23-62), 2:16, pp. 4-7

7 angels in the vision on the mountain:   “In December 1962 God gave William Branham a vision of an angelic visitation which he foretold in a message “Sirs is this the Time?” On February 28, 1963, the vision and prophecy was fulfilled when a constellation of seven angels, formed as the head of Christ, met him with a commission to speak the opening of the Seven Seals of Revelation. Life Magazine (May 17th 1963) carried the photograph (left figure) of this supernatural event, describing it as a “Mystery Cloud over Arizona.” –http://www.bibleway.org/wmb

I seem to be hmmmm’ing a lot while writing this article. It’s amazing, people will believe all sorts of lies and even when presented with the truth continue to hold fast to these lies for dear life. What for? Do you like to be lied too? Do you like to be deceived? Do you like to be made a fool of by non other than William Branham? But then I suppose that’s what deception does, it blinds one to the truth.

Conclusion:  1)  This cloud has absolutely nothing to do with William Branham’s vision,   2)  Satan can perform wonderous signs to capture the imagination of people who pretty much believe anything, except the Word of God.

The famous Cloud                           If you turn the cloud sideways you can see an image of Jesus.

William Brenham denies the Trinity:

Like the ‘Jesus-Only’ Pentecostals, Branham denied the Trinity doctrine teaching a form of Modalism. Instead of three Persons in the Godhead, Branham taught that there was only one Person (Jesus) going under different titles or modes at various times in history. Branham’s teaching is a variation of a second century heresy taught by Sabellius know as Modalistic Monarchianism or Patripassianism. –Evangelical Dictionary of Theology, pp. 727-28) and www.watchman.org/prOfile/branpro.htm.

Monarchianism: View found primarily in the third century that denied the Trinity, arguing that because God’s nature is one He cannot exist eternally in three Persons. The two most popular forms of monarchianism were dynamic monarchianism and modalism. –www.watchman.org/cat95.htm#Monarchianismm

The Trinity doctrine cannot be fully comprehended by finite man. However, any other view of the Godhead will not satisfy God’s self revelation in Scripture. Modalism teaches that there is only one Person in the Godhead functioning through relational “modes.” When He is in the Father mode, the Son and Spirit modes are not functional. In Matthew 3:13-17, however, the Son is baptized, the Spirit descends and the Father speaks. Also, “in the name of” (Matthew 28:19) or in the authority of does not limit the nature of God’s unity to one Person but connotes equality of essence within the Godhead (2 Corinthians 13:14).  –www.watchman.org/prOfile/branpro.htm

William Branham view on baptism:

Branham claimed that proper baptism was needed to avoid the “Mark of the Beast” of denominational churches and escape the danger of missing the rapture and entering the Tribulation. Proper baptism must be in the name of Jesus only. Baptism with the Trinitarian formula of Matthew 28:18 (“in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost”) is unacceptable to God.

If an incorrect formula was spoken during baptism, Branham felt the convert would go into darkness. “But a tritheist, triune baptism was never recognized in the Church, the New Testament… Now you know what to do, that’s right; and if you refuse to walk in Light when Light’s brought forth, you turn to darkness. Right! Amen!” –Conduct, Order, Doctrine Q and A, pp. 178, 181, 182, 184, 190).

Baptism in the name of Jesus only may have been the early practice in the Jerusalem church. However, all manuscripts of Matthew 28:19 have the Trinitarian formula as being commissioned by Jesus. One document, dating from A.D. 60, the Didache, prescribes the Matthew formula (Father, Son and Holy Ghost) for baptism within the church. Regardless of the formula, baptism is not a requirement for being rapturedoravoiding the Tribulation. Full salvation is by grace though faith and not of works such as baptism (Ephesians 2:8-9).  –www.watchman.org/prOfile/branpro.htm

Something interesting William Branham once said:

“167 I was talking on the Name of Jesus Christ baptism. That’s right, a revelation of that come. That’s the Truth. But what did a bunch of people do? Gathered it right out here and put a denomination out of it, made another tower of Babel, same thing, throw edit right into it. Certainly. Luther done the same thing. Wesley done the same thing; John Smith done the same thing, Alexander Campbell done the same thing. Pentecost done the same thing. God deals with individuals keeping His Word. God’s only plan to bring believers to Himself in a true oneness is receiving the Holy Ghost. Then here’s how…You say, “Well, Brother Branham, I spoke in tongues. I shouted. I did this.” If you still got that kind of a spirit and deny the Word of God, you haven’t got the Word of God in you; you haven’t got the Spirit. If you’ll set and hear the Truth preached, and look It up in the Bible, and see It’s the Truth, and then refuse to do it, that’s not the Spirit of God. I don’t care how much you spoke in tongues, how much you shouted, how much churches you belonged to, or how many times you was baptized, or anything else. The Word is truth. That’s what vindicates the truth. If you got all these other truths and then with the Word (Amen.), then you know you’re coming home.” –Oneness (62-0211)

So if we reversed this and said, “Well, William Branham, you spoke in tongues, you shouted, you did this and that, and you healed, and you prophesied, and you had visions, and you saw angels, and you had revelations and you spoke words that God supposedly told you to speak. Then surely if you’ve got that kind of a spirit but at the SAME TIME deny the Word of God / deny Jesus Christ, then you William Branham haven’t got the Word of God in you; you haven’t got the Spirit.

William Branham falls into:
  • Word of Faith
  • Latter Rain / Manifest Sons of God movement
  • Occult
  • Paganism
  • Mysticisn
  • Oneness Pentacostalistm

    Ahhh so you’re expecting Branham to rise from the dead and be this prophet?

  • Discerning The World

    >> Notice that God places william Branham in Mal 4 to the gentiles.

    Really?? Then why can’t I see his name in Malichah 4? Did he drum this into his little followers like a broken record and now they are battling to think for themselves?

    Lets think a bit, all prophecies in the bible point towards Jesus Christ the Son of God. Then Jesus was born of the Holy spirit and died on the cross that his blood will wash away our sins for those who REPENT only. Jesus then rose and is now seated at the right hand of our Heavnely father.

    Jesus then sent us the comforter – being the Holy Spirit for those who are truly save. The Apostles and Disciples went out and preached the message to far places. Probably 98% Geniles…So what you are saying is that Branham is now the prophet for the gentires? Hmmmmmmm so he replaces Jesus and the Word of God, because Jesus IS the Word and the Word was made flesh.

    I find it exceptionally disturbing when mere humans come along…oopppsss sorry Branham was an Angel? eh? Anyhow I find it disturbing when people try do their best to get their names mentioned or interpretated into scripture.

    That’s like knocking Jesus and the bible out of the way to be replaced by Branham’s scriptures which he then wanted included in the bible. Thank goodness for smart people out there who turned him down.

    Shame, I’ll give him some credit though, he really did try hard to deceived the masses and he did succeed rather wll. Thanks to Branham we would not have the likes of Todd ‘the tattood’ Bentley, Kenneth ‘I am God’ Copeland, Benny ‘How Great thou art’ Hinn. and a few hundred other false teachers.

    That indeed does take skill. I am impressed lol.

    according to the scripture, mal 4 v 5+6, rev 10v7, math 17 v11, zech 14v7, Acts 3v21, joel 2 v25, between the 6th and seventh trumpet a prophet is to appear. who hath ears to hear will hear.

  • conrad edwards

    This prophet is not to the jews but to the gentiles.
    Math 24 v 31 is the fifth time the spirit of elijah is used. Notice that God places william Branham in Mal 4, to the gentiles, Being the 4th time the spirit of elijah is used. Not even a fool could miss that.

    Listen Seth, go read your bible. And God made flesh is Jesus Christ!

  • Eleazar

    The very problem with American is that they do not know the Bible. William Branham did some mistakes but he had the best understanding of the Bible.

    I am sure that you don’t know about modalism or sabellianism.Nor about the historical background of ontological trinity.

    You don’t know that some of our rabbis like Eliezer agree in some point about the Serpent Seed.You have not any knowledge about some medieval traditions. You will repeat that Branham got it from Moon.

    You can only repeat what your pretentious theologians can teach you about Nicea and other doctrines. Maybe you ignore that some of your nicean fathers were sabellian. That before Nicea, there were not any ontological trinity?

    We cannot accept the the trinitarian God is the G.od of our fathers. It is not possible… You have better to worship Zeus or Odin but don’t pretend that Paul or Peter were trinitarian

    I wonder if you comment like this about people who preach a false gospel? Nahh…
    I wonder if you think you are the only sober person around? Does that include or exclude being drunk in the spirit?

    Btw, make sure you make sober comments because the, “I am yet to make my judgement on….” and the “I suggest you leave the judgment to…open minded researches” is just plain stupid.

  • rufus

    Am yet to reach my jugment on William marion Branham. I have been researching on the man for sometimes now, but one thing that is emerging consistently in all his critics is the hollowness of their attacks. They are empty of scriptural basis and basic theology!. I suggest you leave the jugment, prying and analysis on sober, neutral and open minded researchers.

    >> Oriental can more appreciate….Our manner to study the Scriptures is more transtextual than contextual….But let me tell you….If you study the history of the Church you will understand the there is not any trace of ontological trinity before Constantinople….the trinitarian doctrine is the result of 10 centuries debates….About the Serpent Seed, some rabbis agree with it….

    See how I managed to summarise all your nonsense above into 3 sentences. You could have saved yourself so much time.

    >> As you are American……you cannot pray in order to have a revelation of that

    And no I am not American. If you pray more I am sure you will receive more reveltation about this instead of just guessing like you did with everything else you wrote.

  • Eleazar

    There is something that a Oriental can more appreciate than an American. Our manner to study the Scriptures is more transtextual than contextual. I was surprised to see that an American without any theologian background could understand the Scriptures better than a lot of so-called learned pastors.

    The very reason of the rejection of Branham is his non-trinitarian doctrines. But let me tell you that all important theologians like Karl Barth, Karl Rahner, Emile Brunner and Alexandre Westphal rejected implicitly(Karl Barth and Karl Rahner) or explicitly the trinitarian doctrine. If you study the history of the Church you will understand the there is not any trace of ontological trinity before Constantinople. Ireneaus is clear when is writing that the “Son is the visible of the Father and the Father is the invisible of the Son”. Tertullian believed in the economical trinity, there are some traces of immanent trinity in him after he accepted Montanus as the Pareklete. Origen and Justin were explicitly tritheist.

    You ignore that the orthodox form of the trinitarian doctrine is the result of 10 centuries debates, the last step being the adoption of the famous “Filioque”. As you are American, you will accept the “Filioque”. You may ignore that Calvin explained the trinity in prenicean terms rejecting implicitly the ontological trinity. Jan Huss rejected the traditional doctrine of trinity.

    About the Serpent Seed, some rabbis agree with it. There are a lot of suggesting elements about the doctrine in the Bible but as you are full of a so-called knowledge, you cannot pray in order to have a revelation of that.

    Branham did some mistakes. But do not forget that Augustin was racist and he was the father of the “christian” terrorism. Calvin lead Geneva as Mollah Omar and killed Servetus. Luther agree with the murder of thousand poor Germans. Try to be honest with yourself: Branham had an authentic christian life. What about you?

    Eleazar

  • Eleazar

    Ok, before to criticize William Branham, start with your fathers like Justin and Augustin. The writings of Augustin remind me sometimes the sermons of Ben Laden.

  • Ray

    Didn’t William Branham says that Eve had sexual intercourse with the serpent?

    How can some people be the descendents of Cain today (per Branham’s teaching) when all of the descendents of Cain would have died in the flood?

    Didn’t Branham say that there were three primary ways that God revealed truth to man: The Bible, the Zodiac and the Giza Pyramids?

    If one goes to google images, one can see pictures of the larege stone pyramid that Branham was buried under.

    What say you?

  • Ray

    Oops… I meant to say “large” concerning the stone pyramid.

    Google the following at Google Images: William Branham pyramid grave

    Very interesting.

  • Discerning The World

    son,o,God

    I could not be bothered if he is under the pyramid or not (which he is and proves he follows occult teaching)….The main point is that basically everything he taught is utterly disturbing. I gave enough examples in the article. And yes he is gone, thanks goodness, but his false teachings continues as on as though it has a life force. And this force is of a false spirit spreading false teaching via people who point blankely refuse to listen to the Word of God.

    *Ponder* Oh heck no, please don’t all go running around telling the B-Mites that Branham’s life carries on in the Latter Rain.

  • son,o,God

    truely some of you folks need to do your home work,Bro,Branham is not buried under that pyamid,its just a memorial!,,,Along side of it is His and his wifes grave,,Call Voice of God Recordings and ask! or go look for yourself. I cant beleive any of yous are true beleivers and run some one down with out checking the Facts,,Mostly the Baptist denomiation who dont beleive in gifts of the Holy Spirit are the loud mouth persecutors of W.Branham,,,And exactly what signs and wonders follow you people??Mark 16; read whole ch. If you care to,,These signs will follow those who truely beleive,,And finally yous are like beating a dead horse,This guy has been gone for over 40 years!!!

  • Ray

    son,o,God,

    People need to do their reasearch?

    Puhleeze. You are one to talk…

    You need to research the word of God and see that Branham’s teaching on Eve having sexual relations with the serpent was obviously false.

    It was perverted of Branham to entertain the tought, much less teach, that Eve had sexual relations with the serpent.

    Barf.

    >> God gives the possibility for the pagans to understand something of his will.

    You kidding? So God uses the occult so pagans will understand Him. Rigghtttttt….

  • Eleazar

    My fathers are Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Your fathers proved to be the spiritual sons of Cain because they killed a lot of non-trinitarians.

    About the stars, the very problems you are ignorant of the rabbinical teachings. God freed Israel from their influence, but no the pagans.

    God used stars to lead wise men, “magos” in greek or “mogh” in Persian to Bethlehem but He used Angels with the Word to announce it to shepherds. This is the difference that you are able to understand.

    God gives the possibility for the pagans to understand something of his will.

  • Discerning The World

    Eleazar

    Not sure what you are trying to say. Pick one:

    * So what you’re saying is that Wiliam Branham was one of the wise men hence he could never peach lies?
    * That Matthew 24 actually means nothing and Jesus’ warning is null and void because ‘so called’ wise men like Branham could in no way be of the devil?

    The Bible tells us that the THREE wise men from the east came to find Jesus Christ the Son of God. They were used by Herod who lied to them that he wanted to worship the child, instead Herod wanted to kill Him.

    Then God warned the 3 Wise men by saying:

    Matthew 2:2

    12 And having been warned by God in a dream not to return to Herod, the magi left for their own country by another way.

    They were called WISE because they were godly men, they came to find Jesus based on biblical prophecy.

    >> Maybe you think like Jehovah witnesses that the Devil sent the star?

    Righttttttt….remember you are the one who believes in William Branham who believes in cult teaching. Come now, pay attention.

    —-

    Right no more answers from me Eleazar, you speak nothing but nonsense, you in no way quote scripture correctly, not that you have actually quoted verses…and I am not here to sit and hold your hand while I constantly un-twist the scripture you keep twisting. The Holy Spirit speaks to everyone, everyone knows the truth, but you have the choice to listen to the truth of the Word of God or reject it.

    Accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, repent of your sin, be genuinely born again.

    If you don’t want too…then that’s your problem.

  • Eleazar

    Read again Matthew 2, I am sure that the wise men were not possessed by the Devil. Maybe you think like Jehovah witnesses that the Devil sent the star?

    [Edited by DTW] I see you edited you post and fixed the end of your sentence “Maybe you think like Jehovah witnesses that the Devil sent the star?” I will reply below accordingly.

    truebride99

    >> message believer

    It would appear any message

  • truebride99

    hi iam a message believer and i recently passed on this website if you could only allow me to comment on something

    first of all at any one point in time Br. Branham never implied himself to be a prophet if thereis a messeage please hand it over to me. this is a title many people gave as a result of supernatural vindications of his ministry

    from 1947 -1963 his post-world war healing evangelical ministry swept across the world . it is notable hard to refute that fact many were raised from the dead ,blind men recieved their sight and the true gospel as did during pentecost by the apostles peter paul apollos was preached
    during his his revival ministry

    remember in the book of Joel 2.28 God gave a promise all the years the palmerworm cankerworm cartepillar and locusts had eaten God was to restore

    all his mnistry brought made the scriptures john 14.12 hebrews 13.8 to be true to form

    as supposedly the spirit of elijah was to come before the the great and dreadful day of the lord and restore the pentecostal faith that was once experienced in the days of peter and the great apostles to turn the hearts of the children to the pentecostal fathers “malachi 4:5-6″

    FURTHER VINDICATION

    Consider these scriptures: MALACHI 4:5-6: “Behold, I
    will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great
    and dreadful day of the LORD: And he shall turn the heart
    of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to
    their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.”

    “Only God’s ELECTED few will be able to receive the full
    understanding of these mysteries in the Scriptures.
    Others who are not, will simply continue to hold to manmade
    dogmas, creeds, rituals, and religious traditions
    to merit their own salvation. “In vain you do worship Me,
    teaching for doctrine the commandments of men”. That’s
    what Jesus told the Pharisees. “There seemeth a way
    that’s right to a man, but the end thereof is the ways of
    death.” It’s always death to trust in the sinking sands of
    man’s ideas. The elect will only walk in the way of God’s
    Bible. The elect of God will hunger and thirst only for the
    fresh manna of the Word that’s revealed in the age that
    they are living in. And this is that Word. Receive it.”

    Is This Ministry A
    Fulfillment Of Prophecy?
    “Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his
    secret unto his servants the prophets.” -Amos 3:7

    God’s pattern of dealing with His people has always
    included the sending of prophets. The prophet Amos informs
    us that God does “nothing” without a prophetic forerunner,
    and even a surface study of scriptural history will uncover this
    to be exactly as stated. Seldom was there a prophet who spoke
    the words of God who was not greeted with skepticism,
    rejection and abuse!

    the world’s attitude towards God doesnt change neither does the ways of Almighty God change himself
    “I am God and i change not” malachi 3

    remember even our lord jesus predicted his coming that is elias of malachi 4 not of malachi 3 because of malachi 3 was john the baptist

    Matthew 17:10-12 “Why then
    say the scribes that Elias must first come?” “… But I say unto
    you, That Elias is come already and they knew him not …”
    speaking of John the Baptist. Secondly, “And Jesus answered
    and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all
    things.” Speaking of a future forerunner to precede Christ’s
    second coming.
    Mark 16:17-18 a reality to us which state this,
    “And these SIGNS shall follow them that believe;
    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 recover.”

    remember his teachings on
    1.serpents seed
    2.the rapture
    3.true & false vine

    though hard to digest

    they fuflill

    revelation 10:7

    one last point is i lay the challenge across on any man who can stand up to his feet and said pointing directly to himself that he William Marrion Branham was the messenger
    of malachi 4 rev 10:7

    Hi all, new to this blog. The Branham adherants must “Awake to righteousness!” Beware you build on another foundation, (1 Cor3). Beware you heed seducing spirits and doctrines of devils, (1 Tim 4v1). Beware you test not the spirits to see if they be of God (1 John 4v6). Beware for in the last days many shall be decieved (Mat 24v5). Beware you follow another Jesus, with another spirit and another gospel (2 Cor 11 v 3-4). Beware the ministers of light! Beware the subtlty of Satan! Beware the wrath of God! Beware!

  • AriseMyLove

    Branham and Bill Hamon need to be exposed, unveiled shown up for the liars of Christ they are.

    Branham, like all prophets of Baal, sees women through hatefilled eyes. He was an illiterate misogynist. He did not know the Word well either; I remain astonished at his poor understanding of the Bible and his tendency to “add” words and phrases that were not in the Scripture text.

    This is due to the fact that Branham was demonized by that weird “angel” he spoke to when he asked people to shut their eyes so he could “pray” for them.

    He certainly is the forefather of other brute and women haters like Todd Bentley and Bob Jones and Paul Cain.

    Women in the charismatic church need to take note that Jesus was no misogynist; He actually elevated the position of women in the culture.

    I’ve noticed that Branham’s NAR brand of female hatred breeds the whorishness and simony of Cindy Jacobs and other women in the movement.

    This alone shows the real spirit behind Branhamism.

    And thanks DTW, I haven’t been here for months and I think this is the first time I’ve posted. I really want to help show up WMBranham for the liar he was. I remain astonished at what a boring ignoramus he was.

    Dear truebride:

    You wrote “…as supposedly the spirit of elijah was to come before the the great and dreadful day of the lord and RESTORE the pentecostal faith that was once experienced in the days of peter…”

    Interesting, because the Lord is promising that He will “restore” that which was stolen in Joel 2:25 by the “Great Army” of Delusion earlier in the chapter of Joel.

    There is no such thing as a “restoration” of the Prophetic or Apostolic POSITIONS of Peter or Paul or the OT Prophets to the NT church.

    The very serious thing is how this demon of “restoration” went after A A Allen in 1965, to preach the Latter Rain Branhamite demonic Mormonism (mormons also believe in this false “restoration” of the church and the Bible itself) in the guise of a prophet name Paul Cunningham to A A Allen.

    Within four years of this demon of ‘restoration” telling Cunningham to go after A A Allen, Allen was back on booze, divorced his wife and died.

    This is the same lying demon who spoke to Joseph Smith and William Branham and Bill Hamon.

    The only thing to be restored is not the gifts of Pentecost. They were never lost. What is to be restored is the lack of faith and abundant life that the AntiChrist Deluded army of Joel 2 will steal from the true saints.

  • True Believer

    You are blinded and you must pray to God to open your eyes.
    A friend once asked me something, he started by saying:

    The Bible speaks of 1 true living church of GOD but in this world there are over 146 000 different denominations in this World so if your bible speaks of 1 true church, who is then right because everyone of them have a common belief then stray off and differ at some point, they dont all believe the same word 100%

    That was his words to me and because I am a true beleiver I could answer him.

    I believe that Br Branham was a prophet of GOD and he never ever referred to himself as GOD or even as a Prophet but because you are consumed with your doctrines and theology you cant see and dont believe that GOD speaks through man, you think because you study the bible Gods speaks through you. I believe you are trying to be sincere in what you are doing but you are sinerely wrong in what you are saying. Your first mistake was as you claim to be a man of God was that you judged and condemned an annointed man. I believe that you should not judge any man who is proclaiming the word of God. When Br Branham preached in his sermons and words came out that said he was a prophet then it was God who was speaking through him. William Branham always said go back to the bible and never allowed anyone to say what he said. Its so strange you seem tp forget that Jesus was called a false Prophet by his own people, it was the minority that accepted him and in every age where a new church had rissen it was the minority.

    And in this day it will still be the minority, and I can say this that I might not be in the end time message now but I am a true and firm believer of his word. Yes William Branham was a Man but a Man of God, Yes He made mistakes like all of us did and do.

    Lets stand in the Good Faith and guide each other, what has happened to being a believer, you claim to be a son of God but you condemn, like cain did to abel. I may be a sinner but if claims are made like this on blogs like this where is God shining through, God teaches us to be reverent and guide and help each other on the right path. although william branham never ever codemned another man even though he never agreed with that mans theology.

    So inspite of what you believe that already makes him a better man than you can ever be. He had love for his fellow brethren.

    You are the one that is decieved and deluded and I pray that God will show you the error of your ways.

    Just like the pharisees who was educated they did not see the coming of the Christ
    you did not see how God used a man to proclaim his true word and reveal all the truth.
    Like all the denominations that are in this world they all have a similiar belief then stray from the truth so you tell me which church is the true living church of GOD and I know you will tell me its yours well I dont belong to a church and I never joined a church.

    Whatever my fate might be for writing this I accept, if its in GOD’s will for me to go to hell or heaven I will still love him the same because he is my creator and he can do to me as he pleases i will accept my fate. I may not be at a church or going to a fellowship but I will never reject that Man of God called William Branham because he was a true man of God, I will never spea a word against him because everything he said was and is from GOD. It was predestinated to be said just like it was predestinated for you to post this blog and defile a prophet.

    The very scripture that you have used in this blog to condemn the prophet, you have actually used that scripture to condemn yourself.

  • albert sheffey

    k people here is what i got from the whole thing as i was researching this man the holy spirit spoke to me and said albert u must be able to distingues between light and darkness, between the powers of the devil and the powers of God. the devil is very powerful people and very smart and very cunning he wants to decieve as many people as he can and doesn’t care how he does it along as he does. You must be able to tell when a person is from God or the devil. satan talks to people and so does God and the only to do this is 1 searching the scripturs and 2 pray for wisdom knowlege and understand for as the scriture says there will rise false prophets and techears that if it were possible they would decieve the very elect mathew 24:24 Im not saying that anyones wrong or right but all im doing is begging you to please pray and ask God to search your heart create within me a clean heart o God and renew within me a right spirit psalms 51: 10. note who is saying this David chosen by God anointed and proven to be a man after Gods own heart but yet what happened to him he was decieved. Decieved by who The devil that old serpent wich has devieced the whole world. If David a man after the Gods own heart and one of the bibles greates champions was decieved the who are you that ye should be ammuned from Satans deciets. Lets look how he was decieved by taking of the forbidden fruit in second samual 12:1 Samuel told david a story of how a rich man stole something from a poor man1 And the LORD sent Nathan unto David. Ps. 51.1–0.1 And he came unto him, and said unto him, There were two men in one city; the one rich, and the other poor.

    2 The rich man had exceeding many flocks and herds:

    3 but the poor man had nothing, save one little ewe lamb, which he had bought and nourished up: and it grew up together with him, and with his children; it did eat of his own meat, and drank of his own cup, and lay in his bosom, and was unto him as a daughter.

    4 And there came a traveler unto the rich man, and he spared to take of his own flock and of his own herd, to dress for the wayfaring man that was come unto him; but took the poor man’s lamb, and dressed it for the man that was come to him.

    5 And David’s anger was greatly kindled against the man; and he said to Nathan, As the LORD liveth, the man that hath done this thing shall surely die:

    6 and he shall restore the lamb fourfold, because he did this thing, and because he had no pity.

    7 ¶ And Nathan said to David, Thou art the man. Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, I anointed thee king over Israel, and I delivered thee out of the hand of Saul;

    8 and I gave thee thy master’s house, and thy master’s wives into thy bosom, and gave thee the house of Israel and of Judah; and if that had been too little, I would moreover have given unto thee such and such things.

    9 Wherefore hast thou despised the commandment of the LORD, to do evil in his sight? thou hast killed Uri’ah the Hittite with the sword, and hast taken his wife to be thy wife, and hast slain him with the sword of the children of Ammon.

    10 Now therefore the sword shall never depart from thine house; because thou hast despised me, and hast taken the wife of Uri’ah the Hittite to be thy wife.
    david was so deceieved he didn’t even know that nathan was indeed talking about him in the story
    so i ask a question as nathan ask david are you that man. are you that man who is being deceied. “Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:
    And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”(Psalms 139:23-24)

    Exactly..you need to test and weight everything you hear against the Bible.

    create within me a clean heart o God and renew within me a right spirit psalm 51:10 note david says a right spirit. So this brings me to my point there is a spirit of God and a sPirit of the devil a angel of the devil and a angel of God. You must be able to separate the two.

    Dear TrueBride99 and Albert:

    You both need to “study to show yourselves approved” in the Word of God so that you can “rightly divide it”…

    Having a “clean heart” means that you are cleansed of sin and in good standing with the Lord God as to your own sin nature in the moment.

    But having a “clean heart” does NOT guarantee that you will have DISCERNMENT.

    Discernment of spirits has nothing to do with sin or the purity of our hearts before God.

    Discernment os Spirits has to do with having the Word “written on our hearts” as God said He would do this in Ezekiel when the Messiah came.

    We need to know the Eternal Word so well that we KNOW when it is NOT God speaking to us or speaking through a false prophet, as William Branham is.

    THAT IS HOW YOU CAN TELL IF SOMEONE IS FROM THE DEVIL OR NOT.

    YOU JUDGE WHAT THEY SAY OR WHAT THEY PREACH OR WHAT THEY TEACH OR WHAT THEY PROPHESY BY THE STANDARD OF THE WORD OF GOD.

    Because “the Word is NOT of private interpretation.”

    We can know exactly what God means in the Bible, because the Bible was written in a manner that interprets itself.

    If you are confused about one portion of scripture, all you have to do is see how God used that same phrase, or word, or symbol, or name in one part of Scripture and then see how He uses it in another part of Scripture and VIOLA!
    You understand what God meant!

    William Branham, on the other hand, did NOT have understanding of the scriptures. Google around. There is this funny part where Btanham simply mangles the Word of God and adds tiny little words into Scripture sentences that change the entire meaning.

    This shows that Branham was operating under the influence of demons. You cannot change the word of God as Branham attempted to do without being “drunk” in delusion of demons.

    But remember this — we understand the Word and know the Spirit by our SPIRITS, not our hearts. This is the meaning of “The Holy Spirit testifies to thy spirit”.

    This use of the word “Spirit” means, in Greek, “our vital principle” or our “rationale seat” — it means OUR MINDS.

    This is why the Saints will be sealed in their foreheads by the Lord God.

    Our FOREHEADS are where we understand things, it is where our minds are located!

    There is a very dangerous tendency in Branhamite, NAR churches, of “minds shut, spirits open”… this is TOTALLY AGAINST THE WORD OF GOD AND THE ESSENCE OF CHRISTIANITY.

    Our minds are where the spiritual battle is fought! If we shut down our minds, we are opening ourselves up to anything and everything, with NO DISCERNMENT!

    Jesus showed us how to do spiritual warfare during the forty days temptation in the desert.

    And Satan used Scripture out of context and with a false interpretation of the truth of Scripture to try to tempt Jesus into sin!

    (Hey, that’s just how William Branham twists scripture too!)

    Anyway, Jesus did not fall for it, of course, because He understood in HIS RATIONAL MIND the TRUTH OF SCRIPTURE.

    This is how He fought the spiritual warfare with the Devil in the desert.

    IN HIS MIND.

    ALL SPIRITUAL WARFARE IS IN OUR MINDS and our weapon is the RIGHTLY DIVIDING THE WORD OF GOD OR

    A PROPER UNDERSTANDING OF SCRIPTURE.

    THAT IS WHAT WE FIGHT WITH! THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT WHICH IS THE WORD OF GOD!

    But if we listen to Branhamites like Todd Bentley or Rick Joyner or C Peter Wagner or Bill Hamon or Bob Jones or Paul Cain or MIke BIckle or Cindy Jacobs or John Crowder or Jim Goll, we are being told to SHUT DOWN OUR MINDS IN A SERVICE!

    THAT IS NUTS and it is a way for the enemy to brainwash people!

    Watch out my friends… read your Bible, and know it and be pruned by it!

    That is how you sharpen your sword of the Spirit, the Word of God, for battle!

    Finally Branham did not understand this at all. he failed to “test the spirits’ and discern that demon that gave him information on people he was praying for. This is why so few were ever healed and so many died, according to Branham’s assistant.

  • Samuel

    In response to the 1977 prediction, Bro. Branham says in the book you quoted him from “I PREDICT (I do not prophesy) that theses visions will come to pass by 1977.” and Jesus said no man knoweth, not, no man can know. so if you half write quotes down to get your point across you only get blind eyed sinners listening to you and not spiritually driven individuals who love god as much as you do, but only love the idols they worship everyday. God bless all Brothers and Sisters in Christ. Stay with God, and don’t accept the words of people who call themselves Christians but really aren’t.

  • Truebride99

    dear arise my love and albert my humble and scriptural to you is that if you believe gods word to be a seed. remember the parable of Jesus to his disciples of the kingdom of God being likened to a sower who went to his field and sowed the good seed by day . but by night he the enemy come and plant his own seeds thereby causing a mixture of good and coruptible seed.

    the whole word of God is a seed and doesnt contradict itself .

    if one perorm miracles that Jesus did on earth howbeit then he becomes a false prophet:; just as the bible says that false prophets shall decieve many and shall decieve the very elect if it were possible ” IS THAT TO SAY THAT DAYS OF MIRACLES IS PAST?” or ” WE ARE NO LONGER IN THE DAYS WHERE REAL GENUINE MIRACLES ARE PERFOMED?!!!!” how about john 14:12?????? Shall john 14:12 cease to be truth because of matthew 24:24

    think about it the word of God is a seed it doesnt contradict itself its accurate

    stop and think about it my beloved brethren don’t try to be hypocratical thinking your are believing true prophecy which is “Your private interpretation of the Word of God”

    remember that is what satan is doing to believer today thinking wrong and misinterpretting the word

    “1 corinthians 12″ bro arise my love the spirit of DISCERNMENT is a gift of the spirit and if satan can discern just as the spirit of CHRIST then his death on the roman tree was made of non effect

    Discernment has everything to do cleansing of the soul and spirit because a nature of the soul has to be changed for the spirit and the mind of christ to come to a believer

    thats why upto now few people can discern true from false prophets

    my dear brethren we dont disern by our eyes or minds but by the the never failing WORD OF GOD or SWORD

    jesus told his disciples “If any man doeth his will you will know through his doctrine; i i dont speak my own word by My Fathers word” ; search in them you think got eternal life they testify of me ”

    in other words and their works is a testimony of the life of Jesus 2000 years ago

    again brethren put on the spiritual cap for the moment and see the things that i have written to you ar true according to Gods Word

  • Discerning The World

    Arise…thanks so much for handling this thread for me…much appreciated.

  • AriseMyLove

    Dear TrueBride:

    Uh…

    You know not the Scriptures nor do you know the power of God, my friend.

    Your arguments are extremely convoluted. You do not display an understanding of why we are to be \”apologists\” for the Word of God.

    It takes a person who believes in the charismatic gifts of prophecy to see false prophets. Just like it took Elijah to pull down the prophets of Baal.

    Please don\’t make the mistake that either I or Discerning the World here do not believe that the miracles of Pentecost are not for today. Of course we do.
    If we did not, we could not see why Branham is a false prophet.

    Your standards, TrueBride, for discernment are in error.

    You need to \”study to show yourself approved\” as did the Bereans in the book of Acts when Paul first preached to them

    You do understand you and I are to be Bereans, correct?

    You do understand that this is the proper way to put all so called modern day \”prophets\” to the test, correct?

    Branham did not know the word.

    Branham taught ridiculous things.

    Branham did NOT put his \”angel\” to the test of Scripture.

    You and I need to take the words and teachings and experiences and \”miracles\” and supernatural displays of William Branham and PUT THEM TO THE TEST OF THE BIBLE.

    That is how you tell if someone is a true or false prophet.

    As to your idea about the Word being a \”Seed\” of course, but this has nothing to do with testing the spirits by the Word of God.

    Your arguments make no sense, truebride. Your logic is jumbled and you make a poor case for Christianity, let alone William Branham. You need to study to show yourself approved.

    Study up on the Manifest Sons of God doctrine and get back to us after you understand why it is heresy. Also, do some homework for us on how William Branham got involved with that \”Latter Rain\” heresy and then get back to us.

    Other than that, you really need to learn to be more coherent in your stand in the Lord. Unbelievers would simply scratch their heads at your logic and walk away thinking Christians are insane…

    Do your homework and get back to us then. Thanks.

    Truebride99

    I think the article is VERY VERY CLEAR and SELF EXPLANITORY; if you want to accept BIZZARE teachings…then I can’t stop you. All I can do is show you…which I have done and everyone else who has read this.

    >> how is a false prophet identified; by spirit????? NO by the and i insists the Never failing word of God the SWORD of God

    Just thought I would point out 1 John 4 to you:

    Test the Spirits

    1Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
    2This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God,
    3but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.

    4You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.
    5They are from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them.
    6We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood.

    So in the Bible / Word of God clearly states that we TEST THE SPIRITS to determine false prophets and false teaching….so not sure what bible you’re reading….I think the best is to just go by a new one, incase the one you are reading is the William Branham version – you know the one where it only contains his sermons and nothing else…

  • truebride99

    => discerning the world

    my dearest and greatest of brethren to whom this blog is concerned it is bizzare for you who claim to men of God to be blind to the truth(Christ)

    very important question 2 you

    how is a false prophet identified; by spirit????? NO by the and i insists the Never failing word of God the SWORD of God

    it is for this reasons Jesus first coming he said he came so that those who can see to be blind and those who are blind to see……
    now for a truth
    1.”THE WORD NEVER COME THROUGH THEOLOGIANS”
    2.”THE WORD ALWAYS COMES TO PROPHETs ” according to english dictoinary a “divine revealer of the word”

    and a foreteller of the promises of God

    with regards to the facts U give on a prophet are just to mudsling

    our christian faith is not based on theology or our intellectual translation of the word of God but on the true word of God
    thats why you are blind those that follow your footsteps are the “blind being led by the blind”

    your foundation of biblical conceptions are futile

    ” God Knows man that his thoughts are futile”

    Jesus one time spoke and said “If the blind lead the blind; wont they fall into a ditch”

    remove your intellectuall cap and put on just for the moment ,a spiritual one

    the bible is of no private interpretation

    you’ve clang to your toooo much to your own perception about the bible ” Lean not unto thy understanding”

    john “14:12 he that beliveth on me the works that i do shall he do also”

    the spirit bears with aour spirit

    a true prophet is never vindicated by the spirit but by the WORD (john 1:14)

    about manifested sons of God

    we are sons and daughters of God according to his Good pleasures of his will

    not just about every one is a son and daughter . they are known before hand

    the mormons believed on the “latter rain” which is truth according to prophet joel but

    how do you know the mormons were false regardless of this truth on latter rain

    they also held the doctrine of “PRE- EXISTENCE” Incarnation” of the soul

    “MORONI” was their prophet

    MORONI was false prophet because he had the truth: but also had false doctrine “PRE-EXISTENCE”

    but a true prophet will always have 100% truth not mixing false doctrine and truth at the same time

    my Brethren u may be sincere in your heart but remember, it wont do you good to believe the word of God in portions

    the word is a seed you cant believe 50% and procalim prophecy redemption you got to take it whole and digest it

    you may be a sincere honest brethren trying to be a child of God meditating upon His statutes day an night which i dont doubt even a bit ; but remember without all truth theris no truth at all

    not any where in the scripture is there is a doctrine of “PRE-EXISTENCE” but there is “Latter rain/Harvest” (read joel O.T)doctrine

    the word is for inspiration and reproof not conceptualization

    again i humbly declare this on this blog but think twice o what i’ve written to you “THIN TWICE” before replying back

    >> DTW is a prophet

    I am not a prophet. Just a normal little person who loves Jesus Christ and is born again. I do however hold the Apostles and Prophets in the Bible of high esteem for they went through great suffering to write down the Word of God so that we can come to know the Truth (Jesus Christ) 2000+ years later. They wrote the Word of God through the Holy Spirit. Every WORD is God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. And it is complete and final – nothing to add or take away.

    We do not despise prophecy either…and that verse (can’t remember where it is now) is mostly taken really out of context and used by the NAR to back up their 5 fold ministry. They say there are apostles and prophets today who prophesy (like Branham). They say, ‘don’t despise prophesy’. Yes we don’t despise the Word of God at all.

    >> Paul tells EVERYONE to “be ambitious to prophesy”.

    Do you mean this verse?

    2 Corinthians 5: 5-13 (NASB)

    5 Now He who prepared us for this very purpose is God, who gave to us the Spirit as a pledge.
    6 Therefore, being always of good courage, and knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord—
    7 for we walk by faith, not by sight—
    8 we are of good courage, I say, and prefer rather to be absent from the body and to be at home with the Lord.
    9 Therefore we also have as our ambition, whether at home or absent, to be pleasing to Him.
    10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.

    Being ambitious is not about prophecy but about being ambitious in pleasing God, this means in all aspects of our life. Because we are born again of His Holy Spirit we will always try our best to please Him – whether we are at home in this body (on earth) or away from our body present with the Lord. For we will ALL be held accountable for our actions and will all stand before the judgment seat of Jesus Christ.

  • AriseMyLove

    Dear TrueBride:

    I have no idea what you are talking about.

    DTW is a prophet and so am I. There is no such thing as an elite Old Testament Prophet in the modern age. Paul tells EVERYONE to “be ambitious to prophesy”.

    The Mormon’s MORONI was not a “prophet”. It was a supernatural entity, a DEMON.

    You need to really go off somewhere and do your homework, TrueBride.

    You make NO sense and do NOT know the Bible.

    God bless, and you have no idea what you are talking about with the doctrine of the Manifest Sons of God, obviously.

    Please go off and do your homework, it is embarrassing. Sorry to be so harsh, but you really don’t communicate the Word or the Lord very well at all.

    Study up on the Bereans. That should be easy enough for you. Then get back to us.

  • Discerning The World

    Oooook gotcha….I quoted a competely difference verse…

  • AriseMyLove

    Dear DTW:

    Actually I was saying that about you and me being prophetic because the NARbots have a tendency to elevate the office of the Prophet beyond what is called for in the modern church.

    I’ll let the different translations of the verse quoted speak for itself:

    Therefore, my brothers, desire the ability to prophesy, and do not prevent others from speaking in other languages.

    New American Standard Bible (©1995)
    Therefore, my brethren, desire earnestly to prophesy, and do not forbid to speak in tongues.

    GOD’S WORD® Translation (©1995)
    So, brothers and sisters, desire to speak what God has revealed, and don’t keep anyone from speaking in other languages.

    King James Bible
    Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues.

    American King James Version
    Why, brothers, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues.

    American Standard Version
    Wherefore, my brethren, desire earnestly to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues.

    Bible in Basic English
    So then, my brothers, let it be your chief desire to be prophets; but let no one be stopped from using tongues.

    Douay-Rheims Bible
    Wherefore, brethren, be zealous to prophesy; and forbid not to speak with tongues.

    Darby Bible Translation
    So that, brethren, desire to prophesy, and do not forbid the speaking with tongues.

    English Revised Version
    Wherefore, my brethren, desire earnestly to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues.

    Webster’s Bible Translation
    Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak in languages.

    Weymouth New Testament
    The conclusion, my brethren, is this. Be earnestly ambitious to prophesy, and do not check speaking with tongues;

    World English Bible
    Therefore, brothers, desire earnestly to prophesy, and don’t forbid speaking with other languages.

    Young’s Literal Translation
    so that, brethren, earnestly desire to prophesy, and to speak with tongues do not forbid;

    It is actually about being ambitious to prophesy -not so much as pleasing the Lord — because of the fact that you are directly revealing God rather than in an unknown tongue…

    The article is self explanitory, like reading an article in a magazine..not that difficult to understand, just like the bible, easy to undertand.

    Go read this never the less…

  • Samuel

    You read the bible as if it were a legal document.
    The bible doesn’t explain half the things you read in it and
    Muslims like to prove their faith is of God because it is so much more detailed than the bible. They scrutinize the Qur’an
    so much that they get caught up in scriptures.

    Let’s not treat our faith as such. I could quote scriptures all day but you’d find a way to make me look stupid because that is what your goal is. Not to worship God, but to stir-up
    trouble.

    Now I don’t memorize scriptures too much because I know the author, who is the word. what does Luke say “In the beginning there was the word, and the word was with God and the word was God” I love that so much I can’t tell you. I find it funny that your so interested in a prophet who you don’t even recognize.

    You obviously have read the bible. God bless all of you on this blog

  • truebride99

    o => DTW
    o => arise
    o => albert

    i supposedly believe i was clear on my statement earlier

    read and compare ; i have not added anything on the comment i previously mentioned on MORONI “supernatural entity”"DEMON POSSESSED” as you said

    i said MORONI was a false prophet now watch what i wrote earlier on the thread i changed nothing on what i said ” FALSE PROPHET”

    i will speak on biblical terms ” Jesus in Matthew 7 said King james version (KJV) beware of “false prophets” other

    versions standard bible “beware of false teachers”
    in other words stay on the look out for they shall assuredly come and Jesus continued and said ” who come in sheeps clothing but inwardly are ravening wolves”

    in matt still he says “NT Gospels: Matthew 24:24 For there will arise false christs”

    now let us make our starting point on this sayings of Jesus

    you and i my beloved brethren wont deny that jesus was prophet-messiah and he was the Christ; Moses prophesied of him ” Deuteronomy 18:15 (King James Version)

    “15:The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;”

    Moses was speaking to Isreal at that time that one time in the land of Isreal a Prophet shall come (capital P) Jesus was this Prophet and Messiah

    but contrary to his prophetic office ” he plainly said “beware of false prophets” and ” there shall arise among you false christs

    if we stop and breathe just pause for a moment and reflect on this truth , we will get the essence of meanings of the words of Jesus

    1. there are true prophets and false prophets
    2. there are true geniune christs and false christs

    in the above point

    “Christ is the English term for the Greek ??????? (Khristós) meaning “the anointed”,[1] which as a translation of the Hebrew ???????? (Mašía?,), carries much of its original Jewish meaning of “Messiah”—”one [who is] anointed” or appointed by God with a unique and special purpose (mission) on Earth.[2]” (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

    Jesus was the christ but picture matthew 24:24 Him being the Christ new there shall arise false christs at the end

    annointed ones who are false in their doctrines

    my dear brethren specifically o=>DTW who claims to be a prophet what inspiration do you have on this scripture that i give to you “Rev 19:10″ please feel free and reply to me brethren with inspirations not your emotions

    Q1.What is the testimony of Jesus?
    A1………………………….

    i dont deny that christ is come and is in the flesh

    o=>DTW “paul tells everyone to be ambitious and prophecy” interesting o=>DTW because the same Pauls says that he is skilled and wise masterbuilder

    1 Corinthians 3:10, Paul says,
    “10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.

    11.For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”

    now brethren what we find out is that we dont ourselves start from the foundation we build there upon from thence a foundation is set already & we build there upon

    that foundation is Jesus Christ;

    paul says “But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon”

    Q2.How will God judge the world my dear prophet DTW?
    A2………………………………………….

    John 5:22 (King James Version)

    5:22 For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son

    Q3. Who is His Son or The Son
    A3…………………………….

    DTW right Jesus Christ is the Son of God “john 1:14″ the WORD became flesh and dwelt among us (Jesus Christ)

    Now you remember my statement How do you test spirits true the scripture you said “1 John 4″

    remember jesus said there shall arise false prophets and christs annointed by the Holy Spirit and they shall shew great signs and wonders and to decieve the elect if it were possible “FALSE”

    see my brethren not every one can speak in tounges though believers in the faith

    the same paul that you uphold in saying “Wherefore,brethren,covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tounges” is saying covet the whole of “1 corinthians 12″

    this is true also

    there are 9 spiritul gifts disributed to the body of christ

    each member has his own special gift therefore to add more light to this statement of truth this scripture is true according to paul “1 Corinthians 14:23 (King James Version)

    23.If therefore the whole church be come together into one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in those that are unlearned, or unbelievers, will they not say that ye are mad?”

    24.But if all prophesy, and there come in one that believeth not, or one unlearned, he is convinced of all, he is judged of all

    my brethren i 100% an totally believe in spiritual and biblical prophesy

    DTW a prophet is one who completely has the word of God you and arise deny and say there are no more prophets like the ones in the O.T Paul tells EVERYONE to “be ambitious to prophesy”

    you can positively identify with this statement you earlier made arise

    “DTW is a prophet and so am I. There is no such thing as an elite old testament in the modern age. Paul tells EVERYONE to “be ambitious to prophesy”

    interesting pauls say to us to be ambitious and prophesy then
    Q. was he not also speaking expressedely to that generation or unto the churches during his time and to us both????

    Great question one should ponder about

    paul was the messenger of the new testament ;right then he was not of the old testament because Jesus was born came died and ascended to glory then Paul appeared on the scene

    Agabus was a “prophet from Jerusalem” (Acts 11:27-28) in the early New Testament era not Old testament. He is mentioned twice in the Scriptures in book of acts on account of this prophecies

    1.Agabus A Christian prophet who went from Jerusalem to Antioch at the time that Paul was in the town. He predicted that a famine would take place

    2. Agabus met Paul at Caesarea and prophesied that troubles awaited Paul upon his return to Jerusalem, and it happened just as Agabus said that it would

    =>DTW you are supposedly a prophet your fellow sincere brethren in your faith ,Arise, so calls you and does’t call himself that Uh-Hhmm!!!!!!!!!!????????????? how does arise discern given he is not having the prophetic title.
    br.arise is a fundamentalist to say the least about him
    from which faith do you say there are no more prophets

    the bible is of no private interpretation arise and lean not unto thy understanding br. arise

    Dear sincere brethren in your faith remember even devils testified Jesus Christ to be the Son of God an to know God Acts 19:15 (King James Version)

    15.And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?

    matt 8:29

    29.And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time?

    again my brethren feel most welcomed to reply revently upon the facts that we’ve seen today

    what do you say abou them then you can deeply see

    No you didn’t, but being a william branham supporter you would know that he is the ‘lamb’ in revelations and the sun in Malachi – so braham thought he was Jesus. So….ja…

    These conversations are soooo terribly pointless because the evidence of false teaching I have shown, if you don’t want to listen….then…nothing more I can do.

    Dear truebride99:

    I do not mean to sound condescending, but is English your first language?

    If it is, there is something amiss in the way you communicate.

    If it is not your first language, you still need to learn the Bible and understand it more clearly.

    I do operate prophetically in and out of the church, though I consider this a normal manner for all born again believers. This is because I believe what Amos wrote

    “I always reveal my secret purposes in advance to my prophets the saints…”

    Prophesy is not a big deal. It has only been made to be a big deal by the false teachings of William Branham and others of the Latter Rain heresy because they want to be bigger and better “Prophets” than the lowly every day Christian — and lord it over them.

    This creates an elite “class’ of super Prophets and super Apostles who do not serve the sheep.

    Read my article on Harvest Rock and Che Ahn here to see what the Lord means…

    Let’s get this straight once and for all. You have twisted the ENTIRE Bible to suit your Branham occult teaching.

    dear DTW

    my sincere apologies on the statement i made earlier

    it was indecent of me but i will comment on another interesting idea that you brought forth earlier on this blog

    i” ll take a portion of comments you made earlier above concerning william branham on the third pull

    “The Third Pull:

    Although not a biblical mystery, Branham created a new mystery, speaking of a future phase of his ministry which he called the Third Pull. Not only did he fail to say what this phase of his ministry would accomplish, but he never fulfilled it before his death. –http://people.delphiforums.com/johnk63/teachings.htm#unrevealed”

    if you could be reverent enough on these sermons read the following sermons on tape & even on books with an open mind about preaching of the third pull and tent vision

    1. QUOTE: THE SEED IS NOT HEIR WITH THE SHUCK, 1965 PAGE 24, “God promised rabbits in the days of Luther. He promised other things in the days of others. But now He has promised us a full square meal, THE FULL SEVEN COURSE MENUE, FOR ALL THE SEVEN SEALS ARE OPENED, AND EVERTHING IS READY FOR THE WORD OF GOD, FOR THOSE WHO CAN RECEIVE.” (End quote)

    2. QUOTE: ANNOINTED ONES AT THE END TIME, JEFF. IN. 65-0725M, “There’s no more higher order to reveal the Word than Prophets. But the only way the Prophet can be a-vindicated is by the Word. AND REMEMBER THE THIRD PULL WAS THE OPENING OF THEM SEVEN SEALS, TO REVEAL THE HIDDEN TRUTH THAT’S BEEN HIDDEN IN THE WORD.” (End quote)

    3. QUOTE: SOULS IN PRISON NOW, JEFF. IN. 63-1110M, “THE SEVENTH SEAL BRINGS HIM BACK TO EARTH. The Lamb come and took the Book out of the Right Hand of Him, and set down and claimed what He owned, what He had redeemed. That right? IT’S ALWAYS BEEN THAT THIRD PULL. (The Seventh Seal has always been that Third Pull. The Seventh Seal and the Third Pull is the same thing.) Three is perfection. THE MINISTRY COME TO ITS PERFECTION WHEN IT REPRODUCED CHRIST AGAIN, IN NATURAL, AMONGST HUMAN BEINGS, AS WAS PREDICTED, AS IT WAS IN THE DAYS OF LOT.” (End quote)

    William Branham’s terrible inconsistencies about a man who tried to prove him to be false:

    William Branham sometimes warned his listeners against testing the authenticity of his gifts. Which is odd because the bible tells us to test the spirits. Never the less Branham indeed had an active imagination and most definitely liked to instill the fear of God into his follows too NOT test him. Branham would frequently tell his congregation about a man who tried to prove him to be false by writing fictitious illnesses on his prayer card, and then would stand in the prayer line expecting Branham to correctly identify his illnesses as mentioned on the prayer card. Every time Branham told this story, the outcome of what happened to his man would change:

    The man received the diseases that he wrote on his card and was still suffering from them (1953).
    The man had died from his diseases (1954).
    The man was bedfast “to this day” (1956).
    The man ran screaming from the auditorium when Mr. Branham publicly exposed his plan (1956).
    The man died a year after the incident (January 1957).
    The man was still in “serious condition” (June 1957)
    The man died 6 months after the incident from cancer (1958).
    The man was carried from the auditorium paralyzed and is still paralyzed (1958–note that in 1956 Mr. Branham said he ran screaming from the building).
    The man died on the platform sixty seconds after Mr. Branham exposed him (1961).
    The man died six weeks after the meeting (1962).

    >> all the bad things that happened to the above mentioned people is because they never had enough faith for their healing and believed not

    Just remember one day, when you pass away from old age, that you did not have enough faith to keep yourself alive. Also Branham did not have enough faith because he had a car accident. He should have been able to forsee this (being an angel) and then heal himself.

  • Discerning The World

    Please go and sit by Branham’s pyramid grave and complain to him that he preached a load of rubbish and now no one believes you. Ask him why he didn’t have enough faith and died. Ask him why he died if he was an angel. Ask him what happened to his angel what walked around with him. Please go find out these things and then come back here. Please also ask Branhma while you are there how he can believe in Serpent Seed teaching.

    I am presuming I will never you see again, because I don’t think Branham is going to answer you. Unlesssssssssssssss, do you have enough faith to make him talk?. Never the less, from now on your comments will be deleted.

    you might be bible proffessors but realize it doesnt take phsychological, intellectual interpretations to see the whole picture of God in the Bible

    you cannot have faith unless you have somewhere to base your faith upon

    leave this research to true born christians who need spiritual enlightenment and not intellectual interpretation

I know there are those who believe in morden christianity and hate that tough preaching from men like branham who will not bow to romanism and denomination churches,daughter of whore.this I say without appology. We do not preach to please men but to honor God,s infalible word not vaticans.

  • Michael Anthony

    Ms Annie,

    I agree with you 100% that WB was a ‘man of god’, I beleive that he saw visions and also that he honestly beleived he was who he said he was.

    The question is which god?

    The other question is which spirit was guiding him? He was not preaching clear, biblical truth. It cannot be the Holy Spirit because he guides true beleivers into all truth.

    I mean really – how can you be led of the (Holy) Spirit (you know the one who inspired/wrote the bible) and deny the Trinity?

    True bride (hillarious name…no really, it sounds like self-election).

    In the spirit of checking facts, there is an authoritative biography coming out soon that will explain and put in context much of what has been discussed in this thread. Your blog is very good at refuting the bizarre things that are done in Christiandom today. It’s also true that some of these false brethren look to Branham for a precedent. However, I believe he is innocent of their sins, or even the sins of the “Branhamites” who take his words instead of scripture. In fact, after reading the biography, I see that he was sincere and without pretense and God was, in fact, using him. (Well, that’s my take, you’ll have to read the book…) He believed in the Bible and the Bible alone and his strange doctrines were challenging orthodox Christianity which was and is somewhat stagnant in understanding. The biography is called “Supernatural- The Life of William Branham” by Owen Jorgensen and is promoted on the website supernaturalchristianbooks.com

    I am not “oneness”. So from my perspective, regarding him being a modalist, I have looked at his teaching closely and I dont’ believe he was so.

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    Alexander

    Well his grave stone looks pretty false to me. And the words he wrote were completely false and anti-Christ. No one can be made guilty of someone else’s sin. He is however guilty of his own sin, like everyone is of their own. No one put the pen in his hand and made him write the stuff he did. If others are silly enough to use his false teaching then that is now their problem and their sin.

  • Alexander Lee

    …. I accidentally deleted my last sentence. Sorry. The reason I don’t believe he was a modalist was that he said when God said “Let Us make man in our image” he said that was the Father talking to the Son. Where he deviated from orthodoxy was saying that the Son “Came out from” the Father in the beginning and thus had a beginning therefore was not eternal. He was the “only begotten” of the Father before he came to flesh. That is far different than oneness or trinity, isn’t it? Thanks

  • tony

    I see so many commenting on the subject and to my opinion all those who believe in brother Branham to be A Messenger sent from God Need not defend him since the Word has already judged the world and nothing can be done now, since every seed has brought forth of its kind hope you understand

  • perfect victor

    The internet is full of critics of William Branham associating him with all kinds of false teachings and ISMS. some say he belonged to Word of Faith, Latter Rain, Manifest Sons of God, Occult, Paganism, Mysticisn, Oneness Movement etc. What most people do not know is that all false teachers use the bible and their teachings would therefore definately have bible terms. THIS DOES NOT MEAN THAT WE CANNOT HAVE THE TRUE BIBLE TEACHINGS BASED ON THESE BIBLE TERMS. Bro Branham never at one time claimed or agreed fully with any denominational system. They had all turned the truth into fables. The oneness for instance hold to the belief that Jesus the man is God – flesh, body and spirit. Bro Branham disagreed with them and taught that “God is not one like your finger is one” but that God who is actually the Spirit or Holy spirit if you wish John 4:24 is one – being God. God expressed himself as the Logos (His attribute) and later took on the flesh of man John 1:1-3, and verse 14(Jesus the man who came with the father’s name JOHN 5:43 “I am come in my Father’s name..” and in whom all the fullnes of the Godhead dwelt Colosians 1:19) Oneness (Jesus Only) do not believe this!
    William branham did not say that the serpents seed are descendants of Cain. It is evil people putting the words in his mouth. The bible talks of “brood of vipers” “you are of your father the devil” “cain was of that evil one” “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel” As Christians we know that when God saves man he becomes a new creature but the old nature still bothers him. We also Know that the new creature is the spirit made after the image of God that Adam was initially made of. man lost this ROMANS 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” when you receive the HS the bible says you don’t sin. sin is unbelief!

    That glory – the logos or pillar of fire which is the spiritual form that the Holy Spirit appears visible to us and which Paul also met on his way to Damuscus, which is the Lord Jesus Christ (Not Jesus the flesh who took the name of Holy spirit, our father) was seen above the heads of the saints in form of cloven tongues of fire on the day of pentecost and indwells all who receive the Holy spirit. It is only (Sons of God) born of the spirit who are made of this nature; the rest simply have the fleshy adamic nature mixed with the serpent’s blood through intermarriage with the daughters of man (cain’s daughters) in Genesis 6:1 – 4 which displeased God. Those are the serpent’s seed. This thought is eveident through out the bible as a reality of our fleshly nature which all are exorted by scripture to destroy by the power of our risen Lord. Romans 8:8-14; Rom 8:8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. Rom 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
    Rom 8:10 And if Christ [be] in you, the body [is] dead because of sin; but the Spirit [is] life because of righteousness.
    Rom 8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
    Rom 8:12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. Rom 8:13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. Rom 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. Finally why is the final man of sin in Revelations often referred to as “the beast”? William Branham never taught what is not in the bible. It is those who read what he taught that do not want to get him right.
    Many other things that WMB is accused of just because people do not take time to study. If i had time and space i would show all their foolishness. Someone said in this forum that “In the spirit of checking facts, there is an authoritative biography coming out soon that will explain and put in context much of what has been discussed in this thread.” Why would someone still wish to give another “authoritative biography” when there are already thousands of sites, books, blogs and articles on this one man. I am sure that such biography if at all it exists will not be authoritative but malicious because William branham is not here with us to respond to the many lies that are being peddled against him. How can we rely on his critics to give us an authoritative biography when even those who closely follow him do not know all about him. Stay away from it, it is the devil!

    William branham did not say that the serpents seed are descendants of Cain. It is evil people putting the words in his mouth.

    really lets test what you are saying is true:

    Favoring the supernatural by ignoring the heresy- Endorsing William Branham

    I find it amazing that people can easily overlook or intentionally ignore obvious false teachings just so they can admire the supernaturalism of a man. I’m speaking about the flagrant admiration of William Branham by the mystically inclined false prophets of our day. Blinded by the pursuit of supernatural power they desire the same abilities as Branham, they consider him anointed beyond anyone of his time, so he is admired.

    William Branham was THE main figure of the healing revivals of the late 40′s and 50′s that extended into the early 60’s until he was killed in a car accident. Nearly all charismatics give a thumbs up William Branham. Considering him a forerunner of many of the “healing evangelists” of today in that he would call out words of knowledge and prophesy.

    They believe the message because they are convinced of the presence of the supernatural in his life. Branham’s followers see his “gifts” of prophecy and healing as vindication that his Message is true. Some excuse Branham as a teacher stating he was not called or equipped for that role, he was a prophet and a miracle worker. the bible has a lot to say about false doctrine and one may not be called to be a teacher but they must have right doctrine for God to work miracles through them or there is no true anointing.

    Its not just purity of life when one has so many errors (i.e on core doctrine). Though Branham claimed “Don’t you never drink, smoke, or defile your body in any way. There’ll be a work for you to do when you get older” (William Branham, My Life Story p. 24). We find out that this audible voice Branham heard came from a tree where he first saw a whirlwind. He avoided going by the tree from then on. But this same voice accompanied him the rest of his life only he later understood it was an angel, the angel of the Lord.

    The teachings of Branham speak for themselves. For those trained in the bible as the word of truth and are unwilling to go beyond its sacred pages Branham brought another spirit into the church. Besides warning of an angel coming with another message (gospel that changes the person, the spirit and the message of Christ). From his experiences of pillars of light, he waited for the angel to be near him in his services before he could do any miracles. He vehemently denied the Trinity. Branham believed in three Bibles; the Scripture, the Zodiac and the pyramids were other revelations of God. Branham mixed other teachings that were occultic in nature with the Bible and came to his own unique interpretations. “The first Bible was in the sky, called the zodiac. … in the zodiac is the virgin. The last thing in the zodiac is Leo the Lion: the first coming of Christ through the virgin; the second coming, Leo the Lion, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah” (The Spoken Word; p.10-12 ; William Marrion Branham; Blasphemous Names, November 4, 1962, Branham Tabernacle, Jefferson, Indiana Vol. 3 No. 21)

    Branham eventually believed he was “the seventh angel from God, and that he was Elijah the prophet. It was not his followers that told them this, he told them. Denying that Eve ate the fruit from the tree God forbid them to, He arrived at the insidious serpent seed doctrine. Instead he spiritualized the event- Eve had sex with the devil which produced Cain. He Denied hell was eternal. And a host of other alterations that affected Scripture.

    He taught that denominations were abominations, belonging to any denomination meant you had taken “the mark of the beast” which certainly is overlooked by his admirers today, though embraced by the New Apostolics that believe we are in the post denomination era and use it to promote their movement.

    But it is the Latter Rain doctrine that he espoused that so many in the church took to. If one wants to find a source for the Pentecostal waywardness of you can certainly point to Branham for many of the problems in the church today.

    It was the book, “A Man Sent From God” by Gordon Lindsay (founder of Christ for the Nations) that introduced many who were unfamiliar with Branham. He introduced Oral Roberts to Branham in April 1948 and Roberts then endorsed him. He commented Later “I think he learned some things” “There is a striking similarity between the manner in which God’s healing gifts work through Brother Branham and Brother Roberts. The power of healing works through Brother Roberts right hand while it works through Brother Branham’s left hand” (Oral Roberts an American Life by David Harrell jr. p.150)

    Demos Shakarian Full Gospel Business Men wholeheartedly promoted him until he later learned the extent of his teachings. Ern Baxter, Marilyn Hickey, Earl Paulk, Oral Roberts, Kenneth Hagin, Kenneth and Gloria Copeland, Rodney Howard Brown, Morris Cerullo, and A. A. Allen, Robert Liardon, Benny Hinn, Paul Cain, Todd Bentley the list of promoters and admirers is ongoing. In fact you cannot be accepted as a prophet in most circles without giving kudos to Branham.

    William Branham’s invited Baxter to join him and travel with him. “Branham asked to see me personally. He said that he had been in prayer and the angel of the Lord had spoken to him and told him that I was to be his companion in ministry. He invited me to join him.” He joined Branham in Ashland, Oregon 1947 and left about 1953-54.

    The Latter Rain promoter Earl Paulk sums it up “What God is doing today is raising up prophets. I don’t have any doubt in my mind that Oral Roberts is a prophet to the Church to bring us back to the healings. Many of them – Branham and many others – I believe that the Hagins and the Copelands, we have varying doctrines here, but I believe they brought us back to understanding the power in God’s Word.” (Earl Paulk, guest appearance on “Praise The Lord,” Trinity Broadcasting Network, March 4, 1986.)

    Laughter revivalist Rodney- Howard- Browne said of William Branham: “A true prophet of God.” He considers William Branham to be a “great man of God” (“The Coming Revival”, written by Howard-Browne, p. 13)

    Che Ahn whose been involved in the Latter Rain revivalism that came to the church as the “Toronto Blessing” told Todd Todd Bentley ‘There’s a Branham anointing on you, a double portion of it.’

    Yet, it ended up to be double the sin as the outcome of bringing his supernatural circus to Florida. Bentley coveting an association with Branham led him down the road of deception and gave him acceptance to his “Latter rain” peers.

    Bentley explains: “an angel appeared to me, the angel said, “I am the angel that has been assigned to your life. I am a healing angel . . . You are going to take miracles, signs and wonders around the world.” “I was with William Branham” (the Voice of Healing movement), the angel said. He told me about William Branham’s angelic encounter in 1946. (DISCERNING THE CALL OF GOD by Revivalist Todd Bentley – [as edited by Kathy Thorne] Part 2 of 2)

    Bentley colorfully decorated himself with tattoos like generals with medals and was widely accepted to “near Jesus status” by leading the church to a new level like those (neo) Pentecostals before him, one which was constantly mentioned- Branham.

    Some believed that Paul Cain has the same anointing as William Branham. John Wimber certainly was impressed. Paul Cain once called Branham, “The greatest prophet who ever lived.” After all he traveled with Branham and was one of his disciples. Paul Cain is connected to Bob Jones who personally influenced Bentley (and others) to a great degree by his visits heaven. But it was Paul Cain who told Bentley that he was the new breed that they have all been waiting for.

    Another friend of Bentley, Bill Johnson of Bethel Chuch says [while defending Todd Bentley]: “William Branham. If I mention the name, William Branham, in certain circles, I mean, they almost want to, you know, stone me, because William Branham is known for the heresy towards the end of his life. And yet there are few men that have ever lived, and perhaps no one that has ever lived that carried the anointing and the power that this particular man had.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VbTCDk2CGNo,

    Carried the anointing? Lest we forget, Satan was the anointed Cherub as well, do they consider this? It is often said Branham’s heresy was at the end of his ministry, not so, it only became obvious at the end. It was there before he even claimed to know the Lord and be employed in his service.

    We are told that a light, as halo shined on Branham at birth. Branham’s parents were not Christian and it has been found they believed in fortunetelling, this of course meant that William Branham was raised in an environment that was exposed to the occult, which can often influence the next generation.

    “When Branham met fortunetellers, they even told him that he was influenced by supernatural powers:

    …one day my cousins and I was going down through a carnival ground, and we was just boys, walking along. So there was a little old fortuneteller sitting out there in one of those tents. … She said, “Say, you, come here a minute!” And the three of us boys turned around. And she said, “You with the striped sweater” (that was me). …

    And I walked up, I said, “Yes, ma’am, what could I do for you?”

    And she said, “Say, did you know there’s a Light that follows you? You were born under a certain sign.”

    I said, “What do you mean?” She said, “Well, you were born under a certain sign. There’s a Light that follows you. You were born for a Divine call.” (William Branham: The Man and His Message, pp. 22-23.– quoted from FOOTPRINTS ON THE SANDS OF TIME My life story” p.77)

    “Not long after the commission as the forerunner of the second coming of Christ, Branham was visited by an angel. He was told that he was being given two ministry gifts. He would receive the gift of healing and the gift of the “word of knowledge.” Branham came to believe that this angel was the source of all his visions. Branham inquired of the angel why he should believe he was an angel of God. The angel told him that the religious leaders of Christ’s day had called Jesus a devil. He should not worry about the opposition from family and fellow ministers. Branham had been told by fortune-tellers in impromptu meetings that he had a special gift of God and was born under a sign. The angel assured him that even devils had confirmed that Jesus was the Christ and not to be concerned by the testimony of fortune-tellers” (Brother Branham, pp. 74, 75, 79)

    This was the extent of Branham testing the spirits. Which was lacking greatly for what he was being led h into.

    His sermons were at times interlaced with foreign teachings from the Bible: “…But now what if He comes…See, that was the days gone by, back in the Pentecostal days. We’re living ahead of that now. We are beyond Pentecost, the same as we are Methodist and Lutheran. We’re way on up to the coming of the Lord, where the ministry that Jesus Christ exercised, Himself, has to be exactly. Like the headstone on the pyramid, has to be honed till every stone fits perfectly. And the church has got to get in that condition to receive the Headstone, then take the whole thing in the resurrection, when the Body is raised up… ” (The Spoken Word by William Marrion Branham, Phoenix Series 1964; Looking Unto Jesus 4, Vol.22 No.2; p. 25 )

    Branham was killed in car accident and was buried under a pyramid shaped tombstone in Indiana showing his influence by occultism; that he continued to believe strongly in mixing occult concepts with the Bible till the end.

    With discernment at nearly 0 level the church had accepted Branham. Why? The Charismatics motto is- By experience we will travel, by supernatural power we will be convinced.

    The roots are what matter; error begets error; the Latter Rain action of laying of hands passes the spirit to others and as they willingly sit under Latter Rain teaching, they are convinced all the more.

    Latter Rain teachings have progressive revelation, new revelation, Joel’s Army, Manchild doctrine, Replacement Theology, Post-Millennial Eschatology, Post-denominational Church, Signs and Wonders, Restoration of Apostles and Prophets, and Kingdom Now/Dominion Theology and a host of other unbiblical teachings.

    Now we come to the main point – the Elijah List. Don’t let the name of a true prophet being used fool you, they have nothing to do with Elijah or true prophecy- they are a group of men and woman claiming to represent the Lord (as stated in Mt.24) attributing to the Lord anything that comes to their mind.

    We live in the days of diminished discernment and the intimidation with fear to judge teaching. Now we have a group of prophets all desiring to be like Branham.

    Steve Shultz Founder and Publisher The ElijahList & ElijahRain magazine has numerous of the prophets featured endorse Branham, considering that they call themselves prophets you wonder how they can be so blind to Branham’s departure of Scripture.

    On his website- Prophetic TV, Frequently Asked Questions:

    Q: Do psychics have a prophetic gift from God?

    After weak explanation by use of Scripture to prove we are born with spiritual gifts (this is not true one must be born again for them)

    “…God’s gifts and his call are irrevocable.”

    As you look around in society, you can see that there are people with many different giftings: in music, art, sports, politics, business, education, science, and many other areas of endeavor. Some of these people use their gifts for the glory of God, and some use their gifts for their own selfish, and even demonic, purposes.

    We believe that it is quite likely that people who end up operating as psychics were born with a prophetic gifting from God, which has been turned to a wrong use which the Father did not intend.” http://www.prophetic.tv/faqs.php

    This idea certainly opens up one to just about anything as being valid, so it is not surprising that they would accept Branham without any testing of doctrine. It is even more objectionable that these men claim to be prophets (last day prophets) and are unable to discern.

    On his website Shultz introduces Paul Keith Davis: “William Branham: A Forerunner Ministry and Prototype of the Bridal Company” by Paul Keith Davis: Mar 6, 2009: WhiteDove Ministries- From the desk of Steve Shultz:

    “Paul Keith Davis takes us back in history to a time of William Branham, who was a minister during the earlier part of the 20th century. There is much to be learned from and sought after in this man’s extraordinary prolific life with signs and wonders following him. As Paul Keith shares, we have much to look forward to in our present day generation:

    “A divine presence distinguished Branham’s life and ministry. He was given glimpses into the plan and destiny of Heaven for individuals and corporate bodies. His ministry was a forerunner model that foresaw the impact of a body of Believers who will emerge in our day and embody the living Word. The signs and wonders that follow will release a bridal revival that will be identified according to John 14:12—a ‘greater works’ generation.”

    Enough said, you’ll have to read more for yourself…enjoy!

    Here are also a couple of resources that will help you to supernaturalize and operate in the breakthrough anointing:

    He then mentions “Operating in the Breakthrough- Forerunner Anointing by Dutch Sheets.

    Paul Keith Davis:

    “William Branham: A Forerunner Ministry and Prototype of the Bridal Company” During the early 1930s an extraordinarily gifted prophet began to emerge as a spiritual leader of a new ministry model. His name was William Branham. He was a very simple, uneducated man raised in the hills of Kentucky and ordained as a Baptist minister. Even so, God wonderfully graced this humble man with a revelatory gift and supernatural power not seen since the early Church. Not only were the miracles and healings that accompanied his ministry astounding, but he was also shown numerous future events with remarkable accuracy that now are a matter of historical record.

    Following a series of evangelistic meetings, Branham held a baptismal service on June 11, 1933, for new converts. Some four thousand people lined the banks of the Ohio River to observe and celebrate the service. While baptizing the seventeenth person, a whirling amber light descended from Heaven and rested directly above Branham. Virtually all the witnesses present could see this supernatural sign. Many eyewitnesses ran in fear, while others fell to their knees and worshipped because they recognized this was God doing something truly extraordinary.”

    “In this experience God gave William Branham a forerunner message for his life and ministry. I believe he was a token or prototype of an entire body of people who will emerge as Jesus’ bridal company. By his own acknowledgment, Branham was a harbinger of something new and fresh the Lord planned for the last days. This supernatural dimension will be commonplace in end-time life and ministry.’

    This commonplace is what is identified as the prophetic movement- better known by those more astute in the Bible as the apostasy.

    “This public display of God’s awesome power framed a heavenly intention. No design of Heaven is ever administered futilely. Every word and demonstration that proceeds from the mouth and hand of God will return fruitfully. A Kingdom message for today’s Church was sent to that prior generation—and we are responsible for its consummation. The Living Word desires to rest in His Bride. Jesus wants to become flesh once more and demonstrate His Kingdom power and redemptive virtue.

    This was what the prophets that were involved with Wimber said that changed the Vineyard church for the worse. Mike Bickle and others spoke of him incarnating in the church- in other words the latter rain teaching of the manifest sons of god. “… when the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us we beheld the glories of the only begotten of the Father and when YOU begin to become that Word, I want you to know the world will behold the glory of the Father and that’s what we’re waiting to see. I want you In now that we’re going to have some channeling one of these days, but it’s going to be channeled right out of the throne room of heaven” (VINEYARD Prophetic Conference. 1989, transcripts)

    The Church IS Jesus Christ come in the flesh (as Early Paulk believed).

    As does Benny Hinn “When I stand in Christ – I am one with Him; united to Him; one spirit with Him. I am not, hear me, I am not a part of Him, I am Him! The Word has become flesh in me!”(Benny Hinn The Anointing, p. 520)

    The “Day of the Lord” is re-interpreted by the false prophets to mean that Christ will come to His Church and incarnate (become God in flesh) an army of believers” ( JOEL’S ARMYJewel Grewe DISCERNMENT MINISTRIES)

    Like Branham that prophesied falsely: “The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us.” And may it be again, Lord, that the Word will become flesh, It’ll pour through Thy church and Thy people, to fulfill the promises of the hour” (A Paradox, Westward Ho Hotel, Phoenix, AZ, 1965)

    Paul Keith Davis goes on bragging on Branham’s abilities. And descents into near idol worship– Early Supernatural Models

    “Branham had several supernatural experiences for which he had no frame of reference or ability to understand. Neither he nor those with whom he was in ministry relationship comprehended the revelatory realm of God. …very few people had personally experienced this supernatural dimension of God. …the Spirit showed him things that would occur in the future. He shared those encounters openly with those around him. To everyone’s amazement, the events came to pass in precisely the manner he predicted. Tremendous healings frequently accompanied his revelatory experiences.

    It wasn’t until an angelic visitation on May 7, 1946, though, that Branham came to understand more fully the purpose and validity of the supernatural dimension into which he had been thrust. This minister of God was desperate to understand the spiritual realms he was witnessing or he would die trying. He set his intent on discovering whether his visions and trances were from God or from the enemy. He loved the Lord too much to allow deception to rule him.

    Branham withdrew to a secluded wooded area in rural Indiana. There was no food, electricity, or other provision. All he did was lay before God in humility and sincerity. Wonderfully, the Lord answered the cry of His servant. An angel was sent to Branham and told him about his life and calling in a face to face encounter. This heavenly messenger came to impart spiritual understanding and a divine commission.

    (Paul Keith and Wanda Davis WhiteDove Ministries)

    These same words and concept were echoed by Mike Bickle “… and they (apostles, prophets) do things that you have no frame of reference for understanding because, believe me, what’s going to be coming down in the next twenty years you and I have no frame of reference for understanding. It is going to be so unusual you are not going to be able to look at the word for every manifestation and find one there because the Spirit of the Lord has so many manifestations that you and I know nothing about.” (Divine Appointment [Introduction], Mike Bickle, 3/29/89, cassette tape)

    Where do the apostles teach to go into the Spiritual realm? God will occasionally give a vision or dream, if one looks carefully we find these were throughout the course of a lifetime and not lasting for days or months, nor were they consistent in the New Testament that is training believers to walk by the word in this dark world.

    Many may not be aware of the similarities of Joseph Smith who also retreated into the woods asking God for wisdom and was approached by unearthly beings that he thought were either angels or Christ himself.

    To understand white dove ministries is about one only needs to read their promotion of Branham and Latter Rain.

    Paul Keith and Wanda Davis: “Special Bulletin from the Mount of Olives in Israel: Messengers of His Face Are Coming From Heaven”

    And I believe, at least for our nation, there has been a curse on our land because of the lack of the honoring of the fathers. I believe we’re to honor the fathers of the prior generation as well as the fathers of the apostolic age. …In our conference we honored many people like William Branham and A.A. Allan.

    “A divine presence distinguished Branham’s life and ministry. He was given glimpses into the plan and destiny of Heaven for individuals and corporate bodies. His ministry was a forerunner model that foresaw the impact of a body of Believers who will emerge in our day and embody the living Word. The signs and wonders that follow will release a bridal revival that will be identified according to John 14:12—a ‘greater works’ generation.” (Paul Keith Davis: “William Branham: A Forerunner Ministry and Prototype of the Bridal Company” by Paul Keith Davis Mar 6, 2009)

    What he left out were Branham’s failed words, and a real examination of the words of an “angel” that he claimed was the angel of the Lord (who no longer appears to anyone after he became flesh in Jesus Christ who is now at the right hand of the Father). So as we can see we have a theological problem and a supernatural one. For if the angel is not who he said he is then everything done was a counterfeit of a great magnitude. The bridal revival is right out of the pages of the false Latter Rain as is a greater works generation. Jesus said this to all Christians. From the first century on that greater work has been done through gospel preaching that brings people into the kingdom and the Spirit immediately indwelling them.

    Barbie Breathitt on the Elijahlist:“I could go on to talk about William J. Seymour, Maria Woodworth Etter, Alexander Campbell, Alexander Dowie, Smith Wigglesworth, Charles Finney, William Branham, AA Allen, Jack Coe, Charles Price, etc. etc.; all of whom impacted regions and nations for the glory of God.

    “Church history has many great supernatural ministers like A.A. Allen, Jack Coe, William Branham and Katherine Kuhlman. They tuned their ears to hear and their hearts to perceive the angelic messengers sent to direct them into the Holy Spirit flow.”

    Barbie Breathitt:”The Bride is Entering a New Cycle of Anointing – Releasing His Angels All Over the Globe”)

    “The time to receive mantles like Katherine Kuhlman, Aimee Semple McPherson, John G. Lake, Jack Coe, William Branham and others has come! Ask the Lord to take you to higher heights to receive these heavenly mantles. Barbie Breathitt: “New Winds, Keys and Doors: What He Opens No One Can Shut, and What He Shuts No One Can Open”)

    Where are we taught to receive mantles in the New Testament? Because it mentions it once with Elisha it now becomes the norm? no one else ever had a mantle passed on. This is how the Latter rain teachers operate, they take phrases or concepts and lift them out of their context, spiritualize them and make themselves sound spiritually insightful.

    “On January 16,1956, during the height of the great tent revivals that swept America and the world, William Branham stood up in the church of Philadelphia in Chicago, Illinois, and prophesied that “America had turned down her opportunity with the Lord.” Because William Branham was the forerunning prophetic voice of the day, the tent revivals and the move of the Holy Spirit literally stopped at this word. They were offered an incredible opportunity into the supernatural flow of the Holy Spirit at that critical juncture that would carry the body further down the road in revival. But America missed her opportunity–she refused God’s offer!

    Then 50 years later On January 16, 2006, this 50 year destiny door was reopened and another opportunity had been offered to this generation. The number 50 is Jubilee!! The Lord called this door a “Golden Jubilee.” This invitation must be understood and apprehended as we pass through the doors of destiny, and encounter the Lord in genuine and experiential ways” (Jeff Jansen: “THE GLORY REVIVAL AND THE NEW CIRCUIT RIDERS” By Jeff Jansen Feb 17, 2007).

    This is the kind of teaching that takes place when one departs the word of God into another interpretation often by experience.

    How is 2006 the jubilee (a golden Jubilee- Says who? Not God)

    The exclusive offer for the opportunity into the supernatural flow of the Holy Spirit is now opened but was not before this? This even goes against the false prophets that through the 80’s, and 90’s that said it was taking place. The fact is God never stopped working and the Jesus revival of the 70’s in America counters this false accusation.

    Glory Dates Leading Us to Glory

    “After this experience that occurred on May 7, I realized that May 7, was another important date on God’s calendar. William Branham had been commissioned to the healing ministry on that date by an angel in 1946.

    This was also the date that Mike Bickle, and the Church in Kansas City, began a 21-day fast for revival in 1983. Bob Jones had declared that a comet would come on the day the fast began, which would be unpredicted by scientists, and be a sign that revival would surely come. The sign happened on May 7, just as he had foretold. They all thought revival would come immediately after the fast ended in 1983.

    However, Bob had a dream on the last day of the fast and told Mike the following: “The Lord spoke to me in a dream last night, and told me He is not going to break loose in the revival in the way that we all thought. God never said that it would begin after the fast. We only assumed it would. The Lord says, ‘No! There is an appointed time and appointed season for America, and when the Lord says it’s time, it will not be one day late.’”

    Todd Bentley also had a visitation on Mother’s Day, 2005. He was told that the healing ministry would begin that day. He was also told that the kingly anointing would begin on Mother’s Day, and he understood that to be the apostolic ministry. He heard the Lord speak to him audibly “Acts 5:12 begins today.” And through the hands of the apostles many signs and wonders were done among the people, Acts 5:12.” (Kari Browning: “The Appointed Time Has Come” By Kari Browning Jun 9, 2006)

    I would think a lot of people want a redo with what they said about Todd Bentley. And who would be those apostles be today? The very ones who are leading us away from the Scripture with supernatural doctrines that are made up, those who promote Branham. They cite Branham but yet Branham said the revival was over when he was alive.

    Will the charismatics finally admit they are denying what is written and exalting ungodly supernatural experiences over the word? With mystic teachings like these is it any wonder the church is in such bad shape. People visit the Elijah list website day after day and actually believe that these people are prophets.

    Let me leave you with this last quotation by Branham where A newspaper photographer asked permission to take a picture and the result was the famous so called Pillar of Fire seen resting on Brother Branham’s ‘right’ shoulder.

    “I’ve been convinced since that day He met me on the river! Hallelujah! I’m convinced that He’s here now! I’m convinced that that Pillar of Fire is the same Pillar of Fire that was with Israel in the wilderness, is the same Pillar of Fire with the Church in this. Glory! I’m convinced It’s right! I’ve give my life for It! I’ve left home and everything else; give everything for It! I’m convinced It’s the Truth!

    “That Angel met me up there and told me what he did. I stood before heathens by the thousands and tens of thousands. You say, “Aren’t you afraid?” No, sir! I’m convinced that It come from God! I’m convinced because it was Scriptural! I’m convinced that It’s the Angel of the Lord. I believe it with all that’s in my heart. I’m convinced if we would ask God for anything, He’d give it to us. He’s just here. Don’t be scared. He’s here.”

    “I’m convinced that that very Spirit that you feel, the Holy Spirit that is moving in us, I’m convinced that that’s Christ. Amen! I’m convinced that, right now, that This is what I’m looking at, this Circle of Light before me, I’m convinced that’s the Holy Spirit! I’m convinced that vision is over my eyes! I know it is. Amen!…”

    “I’m convinced that the same Angel that come down in the form of a Man and talked to Abraham with His back turned to the tent (yet knowing the thoughts in Sarah’s heart), is the same One here tonight. He promised it would be. I believe that that same Angel anoints us, because It was God. Do you believe it?” (CONVINCED THAN CONCERNED, June 10, 1962).

    No I don’t! What angel anoints? Could it be the cherub that was over God’s throne that comes as an angel of light. When the church is willing to believe what miracle men say without checking the Scripture.

    “….Now, it’s (Pillar of Fire) circling the building. The whole building’s anointed, the whole place. I’m convinced that the Presence of Jesus Christ will heal every person here. Are you convinced the same? You convinced that I tell you the Truth, God vindicates I’m telling you the Truth?” (CONVINCED THAN CONCERNED, June 10, 1962).

    Being convinced of something by experience does not mean it’s actually true, many people are convinced of many different things. Does this look like the same pillar that protected Israel in the wilderness as a fire at night and as a cloud in the day? Branham says the circle of light is the Holy Spirit? Biblically, this light was the Shekinah glory of God, when Saul on the Damascus road was stopped by its appearance he was converted. He said it appeared brighter than the sun in mid day. How can anyone believe this is the same glory?

    The Angel of the Lord does not anoint us, he is no longer functioning. The New Testament does NOT mention THE angel of the LORD (but an angel of the lord sent to announce Jesus’ birth to the shepherds -Lk.2:9, an angel of the lord came to roll the stone away -Mt.28:2 and to free the apostles from jail when necessary.) When the Angel of the Lord shows up there was an awe and worship in the Old Testament. Because he is the pre-incarnate Christ, the Son of God. In Hebrew this angel is called Malach Yahweh, this is why his appearances in the Old Testament are called Theophanies. This Angel had God’s name attached to his title, his nature, He is even called the Lord himself- Exod.3.

    This messenger called the Angel of the Lord (Yahweh) 50 times and the Angel of God (Elohim) 5 times is God’s mediator for him. Jesus the Son, is this messenger, he appears as a man in the Old Testament, but in the New Testament He became a man, taking on human flesh permanently (unlike Branham who taught that God always had human flesh). Proof that the Angel of the Lord (Yahweh) in the Old Testament no Longer appears in the New Testament times–Because He became man. The Father who sent the Son in the Old Testament did the same in the New, there are no more Theophanies of the Son.

    Branham was convinced it was all God without ever applying a true test by Scripture and he successfully convinced others. After reading just some of Branham’s teachings it is difficult to consider him a prophetic model for our generation. Yet, nearly unanimously, every person that is esteemed in the Charismatic/signs and wonders movement endorses Branham. Support of Branham shows a lack in discernment and how immature tone is in the word. Beware of those that promote him or this kind of ministry.

    oh for crying out loud perfect victor go do your homework yourself please. And please use paragraphs when you write goodness me…………… and you have some serious reading to go do before you come back please!!

  • Elmarie A

    perfect victor

    Here is more proof for you about your Bro Branham

    There are many who believe that William Branham was a Prophet of God. Some actually believe he was God manifest again as a second type of Christ. Some believe that he is the messenger of Malachi 4 to precede the second coming of the Lord. Our questions are:

    * 1.) Was he a prophet of God or a false prophet?
    * 2.) Did he preach the true Apostolic Message?
    * 3.) Does his doctrine match what Jesus or the Apostles taught?
    * 4.) Did he believe what other Apostolics believe?
    * 5.) Is the serpent seed doctrine Apostolic, Jewish, Gnostic, or Wiccian mysticism?

    The answers to these questions will determine what and who William Branham was. He will be judged by the Word of God and the words spoken by himself. We will not have space to deal with his use of the satanic halo, his seances with his deceased first wife and daughter, or his two attempts at suicide. What William Branham was is contained in his answers to questions asked of him by those who followed him:

    Question: “Is it not true that you are not saved unless you have received the Holy Ghost?”

    Answer: “There could take about a good five hour discussion on that” (Vol. 1, Conduct, Order, and Doctrine, p 368 Question #77 to William Branham).

    Why would it take five hours, when Jesus plainly said in John 3:3-5 that no man can see or enter the Kingdom of God, Christian Judaism, the Church, without being born of the Spirit? This is the new birth.

    Branham’s answer to this question comes later and is found under question #49 of the same book: “Therefore the question is, that a man is saved I BELIEVE , if he’s looking to towards Calvary and dies in that estate, CERTAINLY, I BELIEVE HE’LL BE SAVED ”

    This “look doctrine” is no where taught by Christ or the Apostles.

    Question: “Will only those who have the baptism of the Holy Ghost be in the rapture of the Church, or will all believers be indicated?”

    Answer: “We ain’t …we haven’t got time to justify that, but brother, only the Holy Ghost bride will be in the rapture, see? The Bible …the others won’t be lost .” (Ibid Q. p 192 # 40, A. p 271).

    Because Branham was a friend to trinitarians like Demos Shakarian, Ray Hookster [Chaplin Ray], and helped found the Full Gospel Christian Businessman’s Fellowship, he would not say these “believers” would be lost without obedience to Acts 2:38.

    Question: “Please explain Apostolic Faith.”

    Answer: “Now here is my thoughts, it may be wrong. …My thoughts is, that if a Roman Catholic, or whatever he might be, Methodist, Presbyterian, Church of Christ, Lutheran, wherever he is, if he believes on the Lord Jesus Christ and solemnly trusting him for salvation, I believe he is saved” (Ibid, pp 672).

    Is this the Apostolic Faith of the New Testament?

    Why is it that few if any Branham followers preach this same doctrine today, while they believe a person will go to hell if they don’t believe Branham was a prophet?

    What motivated Branham to this doctrinal position? The answer is he wanted some comfort for his own lack of spiritual leadership concerning his deceased wife Hope. Hope, his first wife, died while a Trinitarian, had not been baptized according to Acts 2:38. This was Branham’s fault. He knew and had been exposed on his way home from his trip to Benton Harbor, Michigan to the House of David church. At this time Branham was a staunch Primitive Baptist and believed in hyper Calvinism on predestination (born saved or born damned). Branham chose to reject the truth about salvation while his wife was alive. He rejected that he and his wife must be baptized in the name of Jesus Messiah for the remission of sins and receive the Baptism of the Holy Ghost. His error here caused him to fabricate his own doctrine of salvation wherein he could feel comfort his wife had not died lost in unbelief because of his own spiritual stubbornness.

    Branham’s whole doctrine of salvation was founded upon him being able to save and justify his first wife. We will not here be her judge. But Branham cannot use her and her spiritual condition because of his own failure, to push upon the New Testament Church a new doctrine of salvation which Jesus and the Apostles did not teach all nations. His dear wife Hope was looking with faith toward Jesus and we will not deny that. We question whether unfulfilled faith is valid when Acts 2:38 is so clear and to the point on salvation. Supposedly, his wife Hope told Branham Jesus name baptism and Acts 2:38 salvation was correct, but she died without it he remaining steadfast and resolute in his spiritual stubbornness.

    This is the foundation of his “look doctrine” and his interpretation of the Bride [Apostolics], and the Trinitarians as friends of the Bride. He has the friends of the Bride being saved by solemnly trusting Christ for salvation although denying Acts 2:38 and the name Jesus being essential in water baptism. In further explanation of his doctrine of salvation and we believe influenced by the condition of Hope as saved or lost, he said this: “I do believe that any person upon their faith and sincerity and walk in all the light they have will be saved” (Ibid Q. 56, p 656).

    Based upon this, an Apostolic Minister in the congregation asked Branham:

    Question: “Do you believe that Saul was saved.?”

    Answer: “The Saul, ..the King Saul?”

    The Apostolic replied: “Yes.”

    Branham: “Why I am sure.”

    I have yet to meet any true Apostolic Minister who believes that Saul died saved. Yet according to Branham he died saved (his doctrine of unconditional eternal security or predestination).

    Did William Branham believe Acts 2:38 was the only plan of salvation? We will let him answer for himself:

    “I [William Branham] believe if a man was baptized wrong ignorantly [remember this addresses Hope], not knowing that he was baptized wrong, …Now, I can’t say this scripturally, but I believe it with my heart that if a man did not know what to do right, and he did something to the best of his knowledge, I believe that God would overlook that and save him anyhow” (Ibid Q. #54, p 655).

    On the issue of speaking in tongues, did William Branham believe a person would speak in tongues as the initial evidence of the baptism of the Holy Ghost? We will let him answer:

    Question: “Can one have the Holy Ghost and not the signs?”

    Answer: “I disagree with you that they must speak in tongues. …I would be judge if I said they did not have the Holy Ghost, if they did not speak with tongues.” (Questions and Answers, 1969, Aug 30th, Jeffersonville, Ind).

    In the same service William Branham said that speaking in tongues was BABYHOOD. He indicated plainly: Tongues is not the evidence.

    What did Branham teach concerning women cutting their hair:

    “I [William Branham] say one thing I wished, …Now, I know my kids has done that too, Rebekah and Sarah, I seen when they cut their hair off in front, like this, …I don’t, I …but when they got all long, hanging down like this, and just cut the front of it out of their eyes, little kids maybe, I, I wouldn’t know whether that’d be wrong. (Conduct, Order, And Doctrine, Q #187. p 1102).

    So a sister then speaks up and ask him:

    Question: “Is it wrong for me to run a beauty shop. I don’t believe in Christians [women] cutting [their own] hair, but I cut others and color also.”

    Answer: “Sister dear, I would not know what to tell you” (Ibid Q #250, p 957).

    On the subject of jewelry what did Branham teach?

    Branham: “Now I don’t mean by that Sister, if you had a pin, …now this is me, not the Lord, if you had a pin that you wanted to wear, or little necklace your husband gave you or maybe your …something like that you wore, I don’t think that’s bad.” “Now I know you Nazarene people, it used to be that you wouldn’t even baptize a woman with a wedding ring on. See? I, I don’t believe that as necessary. In the Bible they wore wedding rings, only it was a tablet they called it, around their head” (Ibid Q #65 & 66, p 1008).

    What did Branham teach about belong to secret cults with blood oaths and satanic doctrines?

    Question: “Brother Branham, is there anything wrong with belonging to a secret lodge, after we have become a Christian, such as the Masons?”

    Answer: “No Sir! You can be a Christian wherever you are. I don’t care where you are, you can still be a Christian.” (Ibid Q 162, p 680).

    It has been alleged by many that Branham had been a Mason. Some believe he was mixed up possibly in Wicca or influenced somehow by it. He bragged about the Masons helping him when he was a boy and needed medical help. He never once spoke against this cult although he was quick to denounce the UPC and other Jesus name groups and independent churches as cults. His trips into the woods at night for spiritual encounters makes us wonder if he was into some neo-wiccian experience like Joseph Smith and his woods experiences with supposed angels that turned out to be wiccian visits. The visit of the spirit in his private shack in the woods at night gives us suspicions especially after he started using mystic methods in his meetings. Many high ranking world Masons in government and business and involved in wicca and satanism received him by a mysterious hand grip. How could he have known these secret signs and grips without being a member himself?

    Branham believed in a Pre-Tribulation rapture and predicted 1977. He believed the writings of the Jewish Kabbalah and the Talmud were sacred. He taught the doctrine of Lilith and the serpent seed. He claimed to be a Protestant. He taught that Martin Luther was God’s servant and messenger. In his book The Seven Church Ages, Branham said: “Now Martin Luther, himself, was a sensitive Spirit-filled Christian. He was definitely a man of the Word.” What did Martin Luther say about himself? “While I slept and drank my beer with dear Melanchthon at Arnsdorf, I gave the papacy such a shock.” We Apostolics are shocked also, more so by Branham’s claim that this beer-swilling Protestant was “Spirit-filled and a man of the Word.

    The serpent seed doctrine came out of the perverted Jewish Kabbalah and the Babylonian Talmud. Was Branham a god, a junior elohim, a malaki, a spirit being manifested, an avatar, a magician using the name of Jesus for his miracles? Did Branham claim to be God or an angel manifested? Many believe he was a god. Some believe he was an angel manifest on par with Michael and Gabriel. They use the word “angel” to mean more than a man, a spirit being incarnated.

    Some of his followers made him Jesus Christ manifest again, they baptized in his name for the remission of sins. In the autobiography, “Footsteps In The Sand Of Time,” Branham claims Moses and Elijah were manifestations of God. He challenges his followers to look at him and see if they do not see the same God manifested again and he was not refering to a move of the Spirit u pon his life, but a real incarnation. After his untimely and sad death, many went to his grave and held vigils expecting him to self-resurrect himself and prove to the world he was God.

    What about the serpent seed doctrine (a rebuttal soon to be published at this site)? This doctrine comes to us via Jewish mysticism and a reinterpretation of the fall of Adam and Eve embodied in Babylonian, Jewish, and other branches of gnosticsm. The sexual orgies of the mystery cults reenacted the serpent seed interpretation ad part of their rites and rituals that were started by Nimrod and his sister/wife Semiramas. The serpent seed doctrine is not a revelation of God. It is an old corruption and reinterpretation that was used in the Baal religion in the Old Testament.

    A tape recording of the serpent seed doctrine that was made prior or subsequent to Branham coming out with it, and possibly the message that converted him to the doctrine, is in my possession. In it, the white races are the good seed and the negro and mingled races are the serpent’s seed.

    Many Jews interpreted the serpent seed to be the Gentiles in their Talmud. The doctrine comes from Babylonian gnosticism and the Jewish adoption of the sexual reinterpretation of the fall they wrote afterward into the Kabbalah and their Talmud. This doctrine is the basis of Jewish gnosticism and is incorporated into all branches of Judaism today that rejects Jesus as the Messiah. It is a false doctrine through and through.

    Clearly, William Branham was a mystic and not an Apostolic. He did not preach the Apostles’ Doctrine. He did not believe in the Acts 2:38 plan of salvation. He did not believe in the essentially of the new birth of water and Spirit baptisms to be saved. He accepted trinitarianism and trinity groups as being saved. He believed membership in blood oath secret societies was acceptable. Do not judge Branham by his miracles for devils working through men and women can do miracles, read palm vibrations, and read their fortunes by divination. Rather, judge Branham by the Word of God, not his claims nor the claims of his followers. Judge him by his word and his testimony for by it, he like all others shall be judged or condemned by their words.

    Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity (MAT 7:22-23).

    If ever there was a man who fits this description, William Branham was that man.

    True Apostolics rejected Branham very early in his ministry because he was heady and high-minded and would not heed their counsel. He refused to have fellowship with them except where they compromised with him and condoned his false doctrines. Rejecting us, he choose the pulpits of trinitarians and others. His rejection of us and accepting our baptism in Acts 2:38, although not as essential, will never make him an Apostolic.

    We conclude then that William Branham was not a prophet of God. And if he ever was a true prophet, which this writer has found no evidence, he surrendered it up when he began to dabble in the occult and other mystic practices and tried to incorporate these into his ministry with spiritualist tricks, as the works of God.

    Those of you who are Branhamites, if you do not believe it is Godly and holy to be a member of the Masonic Lodge cult, then you also believe Branham was a false prophet on this. If you believe it is a sin and it is unGodly for a woman to cut, trim, or dye her hair, then you also believe Branham was a false prophet on this. If you believe the Holy Ghost baptism is essential to salvation with the evidence of speaking in other tongues, then you MUST also believe Branham was a false prophet when he taught a person did not need to receive this Baptism, all they had to do was believe in their heart and look toward calvary. If you believe that a person MUST be baptized according to Acts 2:38 by faith to be saved, then you also must believe Branham was a false prophet for teaching a person could be saved without baptism in the Name Of Jesus Messiah, and just believe for full salvation.

    In the months I have had this posted on the internet I have had many hate letters from Branhamites. Most admit he was wrong on these important issues but they refuse to call him a false prophet . These same individuals when asked admitted that if the Mormons, Baptist, Catholics, Methodist, Church of Christ, Charismatics, et al, taught what Branham taught on these issues they would be false prophets. Why then, refuse they to admit against Branham what they easily and without alarm charge against other groups who allow membership in the Masonic lodge and these other sins? They will not admit Branham was a false prophet because to do so would force them to seek other fellowships where these things are preached against and that is exactly what they do NOT WANT. They do not want a man to Pastor them in the Apostolic Truth. They want their Pastor to be a dead man who cannot exercise authority over them. They can be free-wheelers, Church hoppers, and home destroyers and be under subjection to no man. They do not want to attend a Church that stands against Branham and against his heresies. So they remain Branhamites and do not tell their converts what Branham believed that they believe is false. Branham made mistakes you say! No, not mistakes, these are grave and serious doctrinal issues that will cause many to be lost and end up in a devil’s hell. I want to save these innocent and unsuspecting souls from this horror. That is why I have posted this study on the internet.

    With love toward all and malice toward none.

    I do hope and pray you find the truth.

    2 Peter 2:1-3 (Amplified Bible)

    1 BUT ALSO [in those days] there arose false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among yourselves, who will subtly and stealthily introduce heretical doctrines (destructive heresies), even denying and disowning the Master Who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction.

    2And many will follow their immoral ways and lascivious doings; because of them the true Way will be maligned and defamed.

    3And in their covetousness (lust, greed) they will exploit you with false (cunning) arguments. From of old the sentence [of condemnation] for them has not been idle; their destruction (eternal misery) has not been asleep.

    Take care please.

    William Branham’s teachings are really not Biblical.

  • Paul

    read Acts 2:38 is God still calling today?Also look at colossians 3:17and lets ask ourselves did Peter misinterpret the scripture? for he was present when Jesus was speaking in matthew28:19
    concerning the Godhead youcan read Isaiah 9:6 with Collosians 2:9.

    there is one thing for sure Paul and Peter preached the true gospel and the same gospel is for ALL THAT THE LORD OUR GOD WILL CALL when Paul found some disciples in Acts 19 who had not received the Holy Spirit he rebaptized them in the ONLY NAME BY WHICH WE ARE SAVED LORD JESUS CHRIST.

    concerning serpents seed here is a scripture 1 john 3:12
    Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous.

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    Paul

    Paul and Peter did preach the truth. Branham is and never was an Apostle so cannot be placed in the same sentence as Paul. And Branham never preached the truth. If Branham did his words would be in the Bible but they are not, for no man preaches the truth except the Holy Spirit written words of the Authors of the Books of the Bible.

    Concerning the serpent seed, Branham believed that SATAN had SEX with EVE. You can’t change what Branham believed to try make him seem good.

    So you agree in Jesus Only teaching?
    Do you believe that the Trinity is of the Devil?
    Do you believe in the Zodiac and astrology and divination?

    IS IT NOT BECAUSE W.BRANHAM IS VERY IMPORTANT PERSONALITY ? ONLY A FOOL WILL WASTE HIS TIME TO CRITIZE WHAT IS RIGHT

    Nope again it is a fact that Wiliam Branham does not teach Biblical teachings. Wiliam Branham is a false Prophet and teaches Evil things. Wiliam Branham is only important to those who want to believe his lies. You know there is a huge difference between critisize and heeding warnings.

    To all that have asked let me answer to my best the questions directed to me

    So you agree in Jesus Only teaching?
    nope.Jesus only doctrine is not specific on the Jesus name that they use to baptize but as for me i believe in being specific about Jesus that HE IS BOTH LORD AND CHRIST to me.i believe that for Jesus to be born He had to have a Father.just as the apostles believed.

    Do you believe that the Trinity is of the Devil?
    read James 3:9 it says we are made in GOD’S LIKENESS if He made you in His likeness and He is a trinity why,isnt the bible contradicting itself?yet i believe the bible is the only perfect book this mystery is simple judge for yourselves.Isaiah 9:6,collosians 2:9,1 timothy 3:16.also Jesus said i am ALPHA AND OMEGA ie first and last.i’ll still be posting more.

    thanks

    Do you believe in the Zodiac and astrology and divination?
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    The Earth in its orbit around the Sun causes the Sun to appear on the celestial sphere moving over the ecliptic (red), which is tilted on the equator (blue).In astronomy, the zodiac (Greek: ζῳδιακός, zōdiakos) is the ring of constellations that lines the ecliptic, which is the apparent path of the Sun across the sky over the course of the year. The Moon and planets also lie within the ecliptic, and so are also within the constellations of the zodiac. In astrology, the zodiac denotes those signs that divide the ecliptic into twelve equal zones of celestial longitude. As such, the zodiac is a celestial coordinate system, to be more precise, an ecliptic coordinate system, taking the ecliptic as the origin of latitude, and the position of the sun at vernal equinox as the origin of longitude
    here we have to differenciate between astronomy and astrology,astrology is of the Devil while astronomy is the study of heavenly bodies and sytems,i know that all things that God created tell us of His glory,and if God has opened one’s eyes to see Him in a different way from you,then appreciate,that was the way it is in places where they dont have a written bible God opens the eyes of some through nature,heavenly bodies are part of God’s nature.when the magi saw a star which was peculiar though maybe they God thru His GRACE revealed to them that a King was born and they left their paganism and travelled from far East just to bring presents and worship the King.
    did you know that in the bible there are teachings derived directly from nature 1 cor 11:14 among others.

    astrology and divination is of the DEVIL

    well it’s clear you follow another Jesus Christ to the one I serve,

    Utter nonsense Paul. Go read your Bible in context please!! Pray for guidance that the Holy Spirit help you understand the Word of God. STOP twisting the Word of God.

    1 Corinthians 11:2-16

    Matthew Henry’s Concise Commentary

    11:2-16 Here begin particulars respecting the public assemblies, ch. 1Co 14. In the abundance of spiritual gifts bestowed on the Corinthians, some abuses had crept in; but as Christ did the will, and sought the honour of God, so the Christian should avow his subjection to Christ, doing his will and seeking his glory. We should, even in our dress and habit, avoid every thing that may dishonour Christ. The woman was made subject to man, because made for his help and comfort. And she should do nothing, in Christian assemblies, which looked like a claim of being equal. She ought to have power, that is, a veil, on her head, because of the angels. Their presence should keep Christians from all that is wrong while in the worship of God. Nevertheless, the man and the woman were made for one another. They were to be mutual comforts and blessings, not one a slave, and the other a tyrant. God has so settled matters, both in the kingdom of providence and that of grace, that the authority and subjection of each party should be for mutual help and benefit. It was the common usage of the churches, for women to appear in public assemblies, and join in public worship, veiled; and it was right that they should do so. The Christian religion sanctions national customs wherever these are not against the great principles of truth and holiness; affected singularities receive no countenance from any thing in the Bible.

    astrology and divination is of the DEVIL

    well it’s clear you follow another Jesus Christ to the one I serve,
    i agree.

    The only point where you are correct. We could never agree with your twisted believes Paul.

    I will repeat Deborah’s words for you and I agree with her:

    Oh boy. Ok, well it’s clear you follow another Jesus Christ to the one I serve. Thank you for stopping by. It was lovely chatting to you all be it so short. Toodles

    I read through and I still don’t see little evidence that William Branham was a false prophet.
    He is so misquoted, (Admin-Edited- insult removed). Having read many of William Branham’s Sermons, I haven’t heard any minister who would make Biblical references and emphasize the Word like he did. None I say.
    Deborah, (Admin- Edited- Insult removed) I know u will deny this.
    Regarding 1977, he said he was predicting, NOT prophesying.
    He exposed Rome and now Rome is on the attack against his teaching in every way possible.
    Anyway, GOD bless u.

    Who of you believes Psalm 19:1-3… If u don’t then u are not a Bible believer. What about Job 38 where other heavenly constellatins (Orion & plaides) are mentioned?
    Where were these falsifiers when Brother William Branham openly challenged them holding the Bible?
    (Admin- Edited – insult removed), u sure will delete some posts.
    Another question, if u lived in the time of Elijah & Elisha, would u have believed when Elisha told what he had seen accross Jordan? How would u have believed any of the prophets, even when they taught the Word. Again, which of the men of GOD in the Bible had theological accolades and used them? In fact the educated Scribes and pharisees crucified our LORD, blaming HIM of heresy. Hence Paul said, in a way they call heresy do I worship the GOD of my fathers.
    U don’t even believe that JEHOVAH came into the Human flesh and became JESUS… my LORD JESUS said in John 8, if you don’t believe that I’m He you will die in your sins. Not a second person as that would make u a polytheist. Philip once asked (John 14), show us the Father… What did JESUS say???
    GOD bless u again.

    Psalm 19:1-6 (Amplified Bible)

    To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.
    1THE HEAVENS declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows and proclaims His handiwork.(A)

    2Day after day pours forth speech, and night after night shows forth knowledge.

    3There is no speech nor spoken word [from the stars]; their voice is not heard.

    4Yet their voice [in evidence] goes out through all the earth, their sayings to the end of the world. Of the heavens has God made a tent for the sun,(B)

    5Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber; and it rejoices as a strong man to run his course.

    6Its going forth is from the end of the heavens, and its circuit to the ends of it; and nothing [yes, no one] is hidden from the heat of it.

    Matthew Henry’s Concise Commentary

    19:1-6 The heavens so declare the glory of God, and proclaim his wisdom, power, and goodness, that all ungodly men are left without excuse. They speak themselves to be works of God’s hands; for they must have a Creator who is eternal, infinitely wise, powerful, and good. The counter-changing of day and night is a great proof of the power of God, and calls us to observe, that, as in the kingdom of nature, so in that of providence, he forms the light, and creates the darkness, Isa 45:7, and sets the one against the other. The sun in the firmament is an emblem of the Sun of righteousness, the Bridegroom of the church, and the Light of the world, diffusing Divine light and salvation by his gospel to the nations of the earth. He delights to bless his church, which he has espoused to himself; and his course will be unwearied as that of the sun, till the whole earth is filled with his light and salvation. Let us pray for the time when he shall enlighten, cheer, and make fruitful every nation on earth, with the blessed salvation. They have no speech or language, so some read it, and yet their voice is heard. All people may hear these preachers speak in their own tongue the wonderful works of God. Let us give God the glory of all the comfort and benefit we have by the lights of heaven, still looking above and beyond them to the Sun of righteousness.

  • Kip Kirui

    TO ALL

    It should be noted (and keep this in your mind at all times) that Branham’sparents both believed in fortunetelling (so they were not Christian) and this of course means that William Branham was raised in an occult environment. –Kurt Koch, Between Christ and Satan(Grand Rapids: Kregal Publications, 1962), page 150.

    It has been alleged by many that Branham had been a Mason. Some believe he was mixed up possibly in Wicca or influenced somehow by it.

    Scary, isn’t it? That’s one way to scare people away from Branham and his teachings. “It was said that…, It was alleged that…, Some ministers reported that…, etc, etc.” It was said (now this is a fact) that fiction is stranger than fact. Fiction is fiction and fact is fact. They don’t mix. But to take fiction and present it as though it is fact is tantamount to telling a lie.

    I wonder if you have read about the opinion of William Branham about mediums and spiritualism,as a matter of fact the above statement is a blatant lie about him and his parents when the medium told him that he was born under a sign and that there was a sign following him he told her to SHUT UP AND HE REBUKED THE MEDIUM THOUGH HE HAD NOT YET BEEN CONVERTED,WHEN HE RELATED THE INCIDENT TO HIS MOTHER,HIS MOTHER TOLD HIM NOT TO LISTEN TO MEDIUMS BECAUSE THEY ARE OF THE DEVIL.You can read How the Angel came to me and His Commission,also the booklet He Ascended on High and Gave Gifts Unto Men.

    The denominational Christians, especially the preachers, seem to think that they are right in calling Bro. Branham a false prophet just on the ground of his “failed” PREDICTION of 1977, which was based upon his seven visions received in 1933. To some people, the word “predict” is equal to the word “prophesy”. Any sincere and honest person will know that there is a difference between the two words. Not only that, Bro. Branham made it very clear when he related his visions. He said, in different sermons, that his prediction was not from the Lord but his own opinion and that he might be wrong. He said

    “Now remember, “predict,” especially you listening at the tape. I don’t say it will be, but predict that it will end by 1977, that the church will go completely into apostasy and she will be ousted out of the mouth of God. And the Second Coming, or the Rapture of Christ, might come anytime. Now, I could miss that a year, I can miss it twenty years, I could miss it a hundred years. I don’t know where it… But I just predict that according to a vision He showed me, and taking the time, the way it’s progressing” [Laodicean Church Age, ROJC

    IT DOES NO GOOD TO PROPAGATE LIES

    Well Kip, I am sorry to hear that you believe Branham to be this wonderfully godly man after all the EVIDENCE from the words that came out of his mouth – all those false teachings can’t convince you. When you read, does it go in one ear and out the other so to speak?

  • kudakwashe

    He (Brother Branham) is one of the few, if not the only one that never had affairs(sexual), the rest fell at some prostitute’s feet, most likely including the very one running this baseless accusation. We live in a time of not only false prophets but even false christs, so as it were in the days of Noah & those of Lot, so it is now, high minded people, trucebreakers, despisers of those that are good, incontinent, having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof, from such turn away.

    A godly man would not be as disrespectfull as this accuser of those who did something that he himself cannot do.

    If you are religeous enough to see William Branham as false, why didn’t God call you with a ministry of salvation to the lost than waste time commenting on other people’s ministies?

  • kudakwashe

    Chris Jesus Himself was called Beelzebub, and He said so shall His followers be called. Please note, from Eden till now , it is the seed of the serpent attacking the seed of promise, never the reverse.

    Cain is never mentioned on one account as the son of Adam. The scriptures mention of Enoch being the seventh from Adam, now that makes it all wrong then, because that skips Cain,, ask yourself why.

    1 Chro 1 relates the geneology Adam, and never mentions Cain, why? He was Eve’s son no doubt but not Adam’s son, so whose son was he?

    1 John 3 v 12–”not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous”.

    So was Adam that wicked one? Why would people be so blind. If Adam was the firs tman and yet not Cain’s dad, so who was this wicked father, it should have been someone committing adultery with somebody’s wife. No wonder so much sexual immorality.

    I first heard Brother Branham preach in 1952 in Hammond,Ind on his Life Story. At that time I was living in Chicago. I was so inspired by Brother Branham’s ministry that from that day forward whenever he was holding a meeting within driving distance of me, I would take my family and go hear him preach. My wife stood in the prayer line in 1955. You can hear Brother Branham discern her needs in the sermon “Doctor Moses” (55-0114, E55). My wife is the lady who wanted prayer for her half-sister. Although we had never met Brother Branham personally, he got every detail of my wife’s request exactly right. It was amazing. Over the years we attended about 80 of Brother Branham’s meetings. When we first read Supernatural: The Life of William Branham it was like we were back there in his meetings again. Brother Owen captures the excitement and the wonder of those healing campaigns exactly as we remember them. Currently, my wife and I are reading these books out loud for the fourth time. Every time we read them our faith grows.

    Shows you what demonic force is at work when reading books written by men can grow your faith. But faith in what? Branham? So they read the book again and they faith grows again…. in Branham? They read the books again and their faith grows…. in Braham’s power. They read it again and amazingly their faith grows again …in Branham’s power.

    The sentence “Currently, my wife and I are reading these books out loud for the fourth time. Every time we read them our faith grows.” should have actually have been, “Currently, my wife and I are reading THE BIBLE out load for the 4th time. Every time we read THE BIBLE our faith just grows, the Holy Spirit fills us as He reminds us of the MAGNITUDE of who JESUS CHRIST IS”

    Hi!

    I’ve read that once W. Branham expelled an evil from someone in the name of Jesus. It proves that he couldn’t be a false prophet or just later he became a false prophet.

  • Torro Rosso

    Moreover I don’t remember any PROPHET who became false once he was true in the Bible.

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    Torro

    >> Moreover I don’t remember any PROPHET who became false once he was true in the Bible.

    Let me explain this to you. JESUS IS THE LAST PROPHET! HE IS THE LAST HIGH PRIEST. When it speaks of prophecy in the bible it speaks of preaching and teaching. Genuine prophecy CEASED when the bible was written. Understand this and you are on the way to understanding many other thing. Please, this IS NOT JOKE. William Branham spoke man lies and many people believed him, even today.

    Matthew 7:21-23 (New King James Version)

    I Never Knew You

    21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

    You say you ONCE READ that William Branham did this and that. How about you pick up your bible and READ IT ;)

  • Michael

    An absolute AMEN to that Debs…HE IS THE LAST PROPHET AND HIGH PRIEST AND MORE…
    See Hebrews 12 verse 2;

    Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    Michael

    That’s it. The Author and Finisher of our faith. When Jesus said, ‘It is Finished’ He meant it.

  • mel pressley

    i dont usually get into these type of things. but why is everyone so upset over god’s prophet? seems to me youre affraid of bro. branham. and if his teachings arent bibical then no one’s is. as far as his name being mentioned in mal it is there its eligha. thats his real name. and the scriptures say many false prophets in last days. who are these many? can you name them? anyway not trying to be mean but his message wasnt meant for everyone. its for those who have ears and hear and eyes that see. seems like you get a rush of some kind by trying to tear him down, and thats ok. but what if he’s right think of the position youve put yourself. like he said fools will thread with hobnail shoes where angels fear to thread. if it isnt for you dont try to tear it down.

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    >> i dont usually get into these type of things. but why is everyone so upset over god’s prophet?

    Because he is NOT God’s prophet. Do you get it now?

  • ray

    the word of God is True and no one can do these things except God be with him, John 3:2 “…for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him..” Tell me in these dayz who have healed more than 10 000 people, Jesus promised the works i do shall he do also even greater because i will be in you even in you till the end of the world, so for someone to do such great works Jesus is got to be in Him, So truly speakin william Branham was a true prophet. if you say he wasn’t and yet everyone believes we are in the end times where then is the prophet of rev 10:7 “But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets. ” and what then are the mystrys and who then were the 6 angels, if you can answer me then i might adimit he wasn’t but if you cant answer then He was

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    ray

    Yes, tell me who has healed more than 10,000 people WITH PROOF please. Not just hearsay.

    >> Jesus promised the works i do shall he do also even greater because i will be in you even in you till the end of the world, so for someone to do such great works Jesus is got to be in Him, So truly speakin william Branham was a true prophet.

    Wow, twist scripture why don’t ja. Jesus said we would do greater things than him (he never said WORKS (healings)). However if you read the VERSES properly you will see ray that Jesus was speaking about PREACHING THE WORD OF GOD TO ALL NATIONS. We would do greater things than He because Jesus only preached in certain areas, whereas the great commission would allow the Gospel message to go out to the entire world.

    If you believe Branham to be a man of God then it’s ok – carry on being deceived. I’ve given you all the info you need in the article to help you see the truth but you reject it.

  • rini

    well this article is very helpful and its absolutely true that william branham WAS A FALSE PROPHET. i spent 13 years in that cult but By the grace of my loving father CHRIST JESUS i AM NOW FREED FROM THAT CULT..
    this cult RUINS YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR SOCIAL AND PERSONAL LIVES.BEWARE OF IT.
    william WAS INDEED A MAN LEAD BY DEVIL

    Wow, amen for that Rini! Isn’t it wonderful to have a relationship with Jesus Christ and not a man instead.

    all the people who follow william Branham as prophet must also listen to what does LORD GOD say about him
    [Eze.13]

    3 This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Woe to the FOOLISH prophets who follow their OWN spirit and have seen nothing!
    6 Their VISIONS ARE FALSE and their divinations a lie. They say, “The LORD declares,” when the LORD has not sent them; yet they expect their words to be fulfilled.
    7 Have you not seen false visions and uttered lying divinations when you say, “The LORD declares,” though I have not spoken?
    8 ” ‘Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: Because of your false words and lying visions, I am against you, declares the Sovereign LORD. 9 My hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and utter lying divinations.
    13 ” In my wrath I will unleash a violent wind, and in my anger hailstones and torrents of rain will fall with destructive fury.
    19 You have profaned me among my people…By lying to my people, who listen to lies, you have killed those who should not have died …”
    Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says:
    21 I will tear off your veils and save my people from your hands, and they will no longer fall prey to your power. Then you will know that I am the LORD.

  • rini

    i have been a member of william branham’s church{CULT in fact} for 13 years
    hence i know lots of things more deeply about teachings he Used to give.
    and

    even people who are still his followers, will see that his ways of preaching,and life style bear a visible resemblance to things and habits mentioned in ezekiel 13.

    -he emphasized on his visions (that proved to be vague and false)[read ezekiel 13;6]

    -many and most of the times when he spoke, the phrase “thus says the Lord” preceded his sentences.[can you see what God says about this?Eze.13:6b,7] and many of his prophecies proved false and unfulfilled.

    there are lot more things that proved he was not a man from god but satan.

    all who follow him as prophet kindly test the spirits before you follow.
    only Christ Jesus can set us free from those bondages.i pray for you all.

    and people who already know the truth i would ask them to pray for them and my parents also because they are still in the bondage of those false teaching.

    for surely LORD GOD will tear off the veils and bondages of false spirits and save HIS people from their hands, and HIS PEOPLE will no longer fall prey to those evil powers.
    [ezek.13:21]

  • PHILIP

    WATCH WAT U SAY AND HOW U SAY IT WHEN TALKING ABOUT MEN OF GOD OR PEOPLE WHO BEAR THE NAME OF GOD AS D BIBLE PUTS IT, WEATHER U THINK THEM FALSE OR NOT…WHO R U 2 JUDGE THEM..ITS GOD THEY’D ANSWER TO..NOT TO ANYONE ELSE…REMEMBER SAUL AND DAVID’S SOLDIER WHO KILLD HIM..HOW DARE U RAISE UR SWORD AGAINST D LORD’S ANOINTED..BUT AS AT THEN THE SPIRIT OF D LORD HATH LEFT SAUL, STILL DAVID KILLD THAT SOLDIER..DO U KNOW D BIBLE IS D SWORD TODAY? WATCH IT OOO ….WATCH WAT U SAY ABOUT GOD’S PROPHETS WEATHER U DIM THEM FALSE OR NOT..AS LONG AS THEY BEAR THAT NAME, WATCH WHAT U SAY…ESP. WHEN UR NOT IN THAT OFFICE..GOD HELP US ALL AND FORGIVE US ALL…

  • Michael

    Philip, stop elevating man and focus only on God and His Son ,the Lord Jesus Christ…self appointed and deluded modern day prophets are not God appointed.No man is better than any other for we all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God because He does not have favourites and is no respecter of persons. David was certainly not an example and it is wrong to raise a sword to kill any man whether it was Saul or that soldier. What David did contradicted himself.He wrongly justified himself by killing that soldier.That is not God’s will. It still amazes me how many Christians set David up as some sort of hero…David was the worse sinner, a murderer, a manipulator and an adulterer and liar…who needed to be saved just like anybody else and it was only after he repented of his wickedness when Nathan confronted him that he was forgiven and restored to God. Yes David’s genuine fear and love of God is a very good example and further clarifies God’s immense love and mercy to those who TRULY REPENT.

  • rini

    @ philip
    i think you should consider what is written in bible with an open mind brother.
    i know its written for NOT to judge people but its is specially emphasized “test the spirits..”

  • Michael

    Ray quoted John3:2 but it was words from Nicodemus and not the Lord Jesus Christ. John3:3 Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.”
    Please notice that the Lord placed absolute priority on Jewish leaders real need to be born-again and was not side-tracked by sign and miracle seekers…although what Nicodemus said was the obvious truth.

    william branham molested my dad in the 1950′s my dad told me this on his death bed.wb was a false prophet and anyone who believes in him is a molester too

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    My goodness! Um, I dunno what to say. I would not say that people who believe in William Branham are molesters because they did not do the deed, but if it is true which quite frankly would not surprise me then oh my word.

  • Burning Lamp

    Any false doctrine will lead to immorality at some point. Look at the scandal in Roman Catholicism that is nothing new and has been going on for centuries. There is report after report of all kinds of wickedness that has been going on in the cults but has been covered up. If man’s heart has not been changed, his actions will be ungodly.

    It is a shame that this man didn’t say anything until he was on his death bed – who knows how many others were molested and damaged.

    >> It is a shame that this man didn’t say anything until he was on his death bed – who knows how many others were molested and damaged

    Exactly, how many more are there?

  • anastasis

    I think we have to be careful when saying that “Any false doctrine will lead to immorality at some point” – there have been sex scandals amongst sound Bible-believing christians as well. Maybe not as many as with Romand Catholics, but then there’s a lot more catholics in the world. It’s hard to come up with any definite conclusions.

  • Burning Lamp

    Oh please Anastasis, no sound Bible-believing Christian would commit such heinous crimes such as molestation, etc. You obviously don’t know what a sound Bible-believing Christian is. There have been people POSING as sound, Bible-believing Christians who do such things. Too bad you can’t tell the difference. That is just plain silly.

    Just in case I am wrong, please give me a name as an example.

  • PerfectLivingWisdom

    What amazes me most is the manifold and infinite Wisdom of God which is Jesus Christ, surely His Ways are higher than our’s and are past finding out. As the heavens are higher than the earth so are His ways higher than our ways and His Thought than our thoughts. I would that men were quick to hear and quick to desern but slow to speak.
    Speak what God (The Holy Spirit) speaks and be quiet were He is quiet. But our tongue is a wild fire that cannot be controlled. The Light (Jesus Christ) shines in darkness and darkness cannot comprehend it. Jesus Christ revealed God the Father. What is this controvesy about? From Penticost to Now(the begining of the Fullness), The Holy Ghost revealing the Son of God to the Fullness. This controvesy has nothing to do with Branham who has been falsely accused of so many grievous things even more than his mistakes as every corruptible man of us have made. At the first the issue was the same Jesus Christ said, “I and My Father are One”. Now in the last day’s the Holy Ghost is re-emphasizing “God and Christ are One”. Our Lord promised that He would do that and glorify Him. Can all remember the prophecy given before Branham was officially declared a false or backslidden prophet? If you don’t, he it is from “When love projects”
    ************************************************************************************
    Brother Branham had just finished preaching the sermon “We Would See Jesus,” and the audience was in profound silence‐‐nay, not one moved, nor a whisper heard. When God is about to speak He calls a holy hush! Even Brother Branham who had been speaking softly suddenly stopped! Then all of a sudden a voice was heard from the far balcony. There was no need of a microphone for God opened each ear as it seemed! The air waves carried it plainly to ear and heart of all present. Let me quote it exactly‐‐word for word as recorded on my tape recorder:

    “Yea saith the Lord to this my people, that my servant whom I have sent, even unto thee, even unto this generation, he must speak boldly even as Paul, to convince these that I have sent him to.
    The Eleventh Commandment ‐ 22
    “Yea for I have sent him my servant Branham. I have put My words in his mouth. Even as I have sent my Son to die, and my people rejected Him‐‐even so have I sent my son Branham, even in this thy day‐‐unto these he hath come.
    “Yea they have assembled together, they have met in their secret chambers. The leaders of my people have counseled together. They have passed judgment even upon him. They have said in their secret chambers,‐‐’We shall reject him‐‐we shall seek a fault with him. We shall find many faults with him, and we shall teach our people. We shall tell them that this also is Beelzebub. Yea, it is not the Spirit of the Lord that has sent him.’
    “So I will judge them even by my servant Branham whom I have sent unto thee.
    “For I will put my Spirit in my servants and if thou doth not yield to my Spirit thou shalt be broken. But if it shall fall upon thee, if the Word of the Lord shall fall upon thee, thou shalt be crushed, and thy house left unto thee desolate. This is the rock, yea if thou shalt fall upon it thou shalt be broken. But if it doth fall upon thee it will grind thee to powder.
    “And thus saith the Lord even unto those who have assembled together, thus saith the Lord unto those that call themselves by those who have been filled with my Spirit: For ye have been my people‐‐I have blessed thee, I have anointed thee, but thou hast gathered together and hast rejected the servant of the Lord God that I have sent unto thee. And even by sending him will I judge thee, and thy house shall be desolate‐‐even in this day, and in this hour. For thou shalt call for revival but the ear of the Lord shall not hearken unto thee, for when I did call unto thee thou didst not know me. Thou wouldst be a strange people unto me when I would speak unto thee. Yea thou hast become even as my people when I stood and cast out devils, and healed the sick, and broke bread and multiplied it in thine eyes, thou said ‘he has a devil.’
    The Eleventh Commandment ‐ 23
    “But unto him that hath an ear let him hear what saith the Spirit unto the churches, for I will speak unto thee. I will send my servants unto thee and they shall bless thee and thou shalt be gathered unto me. Thou shalt be blessed mightily as thou hast never been. Cast from thee the thinking of men and the ways of men and turn to the Lord.”
    This mighty prophecy speaks for itself! And at this time I shall let the analysis be yours. God speaking by prophecy to us, warning us I’m sure, of danger present as well as danger ahead.

  • PerfectLivingWisdom

    Dearly beloved Deborah, I have great grieve in the Lord Jesus Christ continually in my spirit and pray earnestly trusting God for you and many beloved ones like you who are too quick to speak but very slow to hear (or even sometimes you deliberately stop your ears, close eyes and block the understanding of the heart), slow to study and learn and to truly discern the Knowledge of the Son of God (the Truth), (being instant in season) but rather a lot of you devote your God given time, resources, strength and zeal meant for the Lord Jesus Christ to fight against Him. The same costly mistake the Jews made when they said “away with Him” and when Saul persecuted the Church.
    As one of God’s children of Wisdom, I entreat you in love, to give yourself a good time of being truly Born Again of His Spirit and His Word first, then learn how to obtain grace to die to self, reed yourself of every guile and dishonesty in your spirit and just allow the Fullness of the Word of God to abide in you before you can have grace to see from God’s eye. Branham is not the issue of contentions it is the Revelation of Jesus Christ. The condition of the church of this age is terrible in the sight of the Lord Jesus (Rev 3:15). This put anyone that has eyes in tears for you brethren.
    Rev 3:15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
    Rev 3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

    Rev 3:17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

    Rev 3:18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

    Rev 3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

    Rev 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

    I have gone through your write up and with all due respect, it is childish in the Lord, you are making arguments without the sound wisdom and knowledge of the Son of God talk less of approaching the Fullness of it which is the most essential part for the Church at this time and is the main theme of the End time Message (The Revelation of Jesus Christ). I also persive that you are using worldly politics in trying to ensnare bro. Branham by his words which you probably know his real intentions and meanings but you legally wish to paint him nasty Beware! God is not a man, He judgest from the intents and purpose of the heart and spirit of all men without respect of persons. You should not bring tactics of world politics into the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

    The sad part of the matter is that even though Brother Branham prayed for the church that God should be merciful to him and the church that his multitudes of mistakes should not be a stumbling block to the church yet still although God had answered that prayer, it is only effective on those who are truly looking for the Lord Jesus Christ and His glorious appearing but to all others on both sides who turned their eyes from Jesus Christ and looked upon the man (Branham), failed on all sides one side idolizing him and other looking at the mistakes are blinded from the gold tried with fire but the Bride of Jesus Christ moves unto the Full Revelation of Jesus Christ by personal encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ.

    Beloved, Note: Jesus Christ took over from Branham a long time ago so look away from man to Jesus Christ the Light of the world and you will be enlightened. The Evening Light is here the darkness is gone for him that hath an ear to hear what the Spirit says to the Churches.

    The End Time Message is the Revelation of Jesus Christ as promised. The Holy Spirit has change the glory of His Presence to the Spirit of the Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. This transforms the Bride to the image of Christ Jesus. Be wise.

  • Mark

    First of all those who believe that William Branham is a prophet of God while making false claims, prophecies and vindicating himself to be a “Messenger Of God” is simply putrid and not to mention ludicrous. Branham believed in Modalism(MonarchianismPatripassianism)utterly denying the triune nature of the interrelationship in the Godhead. Three distinct persons that are co-eternal, co-existent and co-equal yet unified in essence substance and deity and having a relationship between man and God(Elohim). Branham also believed in Serpent Seed which is also false scripturally because it supports Gnosticism, Jewish Kabbalism with claims of racial superiority and intermingling having produced an offspring from contamination which is also incorrect.

  • Burning Lamp

    Perfect Living Wisdom – that is a strange name you have chosen for yourself. You embrace a form of godliness but deny the truth of God. You sound like one of those who subscribe to “touch not my anointed”. That is how cults gain ground – don’t examine the leader.

    PLW, you think you have the wisdom when in fact you are deceived. Deborah is not your beloved, she is only the beloved of the Lord Who bought her with a price. Unlike you, she does not look to earthly men, but to God and His Word.

    I pray you will come out of your deception before it is too late.

  • PerfectLivingWisdom

    Rev 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

    Dear Burning Lamp – Jesus Christ is the Wisdom and Power of God (1 Cor 1:24). I am only one of His dear children that justifies Him (The Fullness of the Word of God) in my day. I do not confer with flesh and blood but I ask God for the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. It is the Spirit that quickeneth, flesh and blood profits nothing.

    I know no man after the flesh but the Revelation of Jesus Christ is the Rock upon which the Church is built and I stand. Ye are relying on what the theology of men teach you but I depend on the promise of the Father (The Holy Ghost) that teaches us of all things. Jesus Christ is the Light and in Him is no darkness at all, He shines in darkness and darkness cannot comprehend Him. Same Christ Jesus in Paul is in me He is PerfectLivingWisdom (not I) and I am one of his many children (Matt 11:19, Mark 7:35).
    I do not have a form of godliness, it is Christ in me the hope of glory.

    Learn the fruits of true wisdom and keep your mouth from evil. (James 3:17). Be quick to hear and slow to speak, examine all things by the Word of God and hold to what is true. Do not pay people to study the Bible for you, do it yourself with the help of the Holy Spirit of God who only knows the deep things of God and compares spiritual with spiritual.

    I do not condemn you, for I know you might be more zealous for the Lord than I but let your zeal be with knowledge and I know you do not have an idea of what perfect understanding of the Son of God come out perfectly clear when we learn to live believe every Word of God that proceeds out of the mouth of God and is in the Bible without trying to help God by putting private interpretations to them. so that you may have the Fullness of the Word of God dwelling in you but by God’s grace we will be there one day, by then you will not be ignorant of the promise for your day. I love you in Christ Jesus and for His sake. God bless you.

    About the Mysterious Cloud:(Corrected version; please discard the former).
    BELOVED LET’S END THE CONTROVERSY AND PREPARE FOR THE COMING OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST!!!
    Sad that so many are too dull of hearing, too lazy to study, too slow to understand and discern the Word and Way of God Almighty but are very quick to speak carelessly and arrogantly and blasphemously about what they know nothing about (God be merciful to all). The trouble is, they never wait to ask the Lord God Himself about the matter but depend on what others say and teach and what seems right in the eyes of the multitude. However, the End Time Message is the Full Revelation of Jesus Christ (Christ is the Mystery of God Revealed) this brings the Headstone upon the Gentile Church and makes Her ready to receive Christ the Head and to leave together on the Rapture. Not by power nor by might but by the grace of God can one fully comprehend and receive it, it is a very narrow, hard, précised and perfect Way. When you do not confer with flesh and blood you will understand the matter even in apparent mistakes of the messenger or prophet that causes confusion, misunderstanding and a stumbling block to many. If you are a true follower of Christ Jesus Himself, you will obtain grace to be able to differentiate the purpose of the Lord Jesus Christ and separate them from the mistakes of the prophet.
    When I learnt about the cloud controversy in about 2009 and 2010, in relation to the Thor rocket launching on February 28, 1963. Certainly I was extremely disarrayed and discouraged about that part of the End Time Message. When I also read the article “Branham lied” by Reckart challenging End time Message believers to give an accurate account about the discrepancy, I cried to God quoting 1John2:21 I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth. And I began to say Father you are the True Light and in you there is no darkness at all and no lie is of the truth. I said “I hate every false way, I hereby dissociate myself from any lie and lies whatsoever.” I further said, God, you are not the author of confusion to thy children (remembering that God Himself promised my family and thereafter gave us the End Time or Last Day Message). So I had God to hold upon His Faithfulness. So before I could conclude anything fraudulent about the cloud, the Holy Ghost restrained me strongly from within remembering me that it was Himself that gave me and my family the End Time Message. He prompted me to go into study to find out the scriptural Truth about the Cloud. After my extensive study, prayer, meditation and waiting on the Lord Jesus Christ and His Holy Spirit, and having carefully listened and considered all the writings and reports from both pros, cons and neutral writers, and being very familiar with the fact that Branham speaks or reports events carelessly but not dishonestly, I totally rule out a willful lie of this context from even any born again Christian who is a baby in Christ talk less of a man of God who loved Jesus Christ so much and was ready to give his life for His Name and who was teaching mainly about Perfection in Christ Jesus. With all these considerations, this is my version of the Cloud story and what I think can be reconstructed from all the bits of the story to clear the mystery that caused the controversy:

    Many visions had been given to the prophet concerning the coming of the Seven Angels.
    In “Sirs is this the Time” and other messages prior to that time, he talk extensively about it.
    Close to that time, he actually started moving west.
    Dreams and interpretations were given to others concerning the Third Pull (the Revelation of Jesus Christ).
    A prophecy said “Come up to the mountain and I will speak to you there as I did with Moses”

    Exo 24:16 And the glory of the LORD abode upon mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days: and the seventh day he called unto Moses out of the midst of the cloud.

    Note the number Seven is very significant about the Revelation of Jesus Christ, so almost everything is in the sevens. Seven Days, Seven Angels, Seven Thunders, Seven Mysteries, Seven Spirits of God.

    The number 28 has four sevens in it. February 28, 1963 was a significant day of the leap year 1963. That the Cloud also stayed light for 28 minutes after sunset is similarly significant.

    The Revelation of Jesus Christ in the sky actually appear on that Thursday February 28, 1963. The sky was seriously physically charged with the Presence of the Lord Jesus Christ with the Seven Angels. This Presence by the way might have even caused the malfunctioning of those rockets far away in California which when exploded scattered and dispersed under wind turbulence, eddy current, churning and diffusion within 30 or 45 minutes at most. Under no air fluid dynamic circumstances was Flagstar Cloud a result of that explosion 500 miles away and in that shape. This was a rare cloud as was generally reported, no such had ever been reported before or thereafter or have there never more been any such explosions anywhere again? The Presence of the Lord Jesus Christ and His Seven Angels hath charged the western sky so strongly from Thursday February 28 onwards. He needed Seven Days to touch down and to utter His Voice on the Seventh Day (Ex 24:16). He had already sent His word calling His prophet to come up to the mountain, but Bro. Branham knew not that His Presence hath already descended but he only felt a very strong attraction towards the mountain. The cameras, reporters and observers saw and captured the Arrival on February 28, 1963 but only Branham and those with him saw the departure after the seventh day counted from March 1 to March 7. Bro. Branham arrived Tucson Arizona and preached on March 4, they started hunting on the March 5 which is day one of the hunting. Three Days (a perfect number) was needed before God speaks to him.
    The Third day is the Seventh Day where Seven and Three intersect that was when the Blast happened. The Thunder is The Voice of God (John 12:29).
    God spoke to him on the Seventh Day of the arrival of the Angels which was their Third Day of hunting.
    Branham knew not about the Arrival but he and his companions only saw the Returning into the sky after speaking to Branham. Also Branham had no idea that the Picture on the Science Magazine had anything to do with his Message until the Holy Spirit told him to turn the picture to the right and carefully look at it. The facial profile of the face of Jesus Christ was not manmade but what the cameras took just as in other pictures of the supernatural. The interpretations followed (Rev 1:14, Dan 7:9) He honestly did not know what happened few days before he was in the mountain the “Parousia” is associated with Arrivals. But before that time he was emphasizing “Watch out something is fixing to happen” and during the preaching of the Seals he said “that was why I had to go west to connect with those Seven Angels”. Note also that within this time, no other event or phenomenon of such magnitude of peculiarity, attention and wonder to both science and the general public happened. Branham did not call for the meetings for the Seals after seeing the publication which came out in May 17, 1963. The meetings were held right in the heart of March after February 28, 1963. The cameras and many people in all directions saw the Arrival of ” the sign of His Coming ” (The Revelation of Jesus Christ), (The Fullness of the Word), (The Fullness of the Knowledge of the Son of God to Perfect the Bride) (The Spirit of His Coming). Indeed great Grace and Faith has been release to us by the Revelation of Jesus Christ (1Pet 1:13, Rev 1:1). The same Grace that brings down the Head Stone (Zech 4:7). Great Grace for the Resurrection (Phil 3:10) and Rapture (Heb 11: 5). Branham knew nothing about the arrival but honestly thought that what he and others saw which was the departure was actually what the Science magazine carried. But the science magazine carried the Arrival not the returning into the sky after speaking to Branham. The Presence of the Lord Jesus Christ remains with us to prepare the Bride for the rapture, since then He took over from the messenger as He did from John the Baptist. Notice Bro. Branham said both of us cannot be here at the same time therefore He must increase and I must decrease referring to the Fullness of Christ Jesus in His Church. After the revelation of the Seven Seals God was almost done with the ministry of the forerunner and like John his end time was close and definitely as he himself prayed to God asking that as soon as God was done with him, he himself was done with life and in April 1965 “I see my end time as fifty six years old”. God was done with him as with John. God then permitted Satan to destroy his flesh just as John the Baptist was given over to Herodias but the Revelation of Jesus Christ which is Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today and forever remains to perfect the saints till we all come to the full measure of the stature of Christ Jesus (Eph 4: 11-13).

    I therefore emphasize that it is very important to look, focus and follow the Lord Jesus Christ and His Holy Spirit than to carnally follow a man or any of the messengers who are men with many mistakes and errors. Following man instead of the Holy Ghost is what Bro. Branham called denominationalism and religion which is man’s we of seeking and serving God and not God’s provided Way which is Christ Jesus this has been proven to be the truth in all ages.

    Like in most of his mistakes Branham was careless about date precisions otherwise he would have discovered that it was not the departure into the sky that was recorded by science magazine and seen by others. But the Holy Ghost sorts and separates the mistakes and filters out all things for the Bride (His elects). Let him that hath an ear hear what the Spirit says to the Churches.
    Rev 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

    People must not quote THE MESSAGE out of context nor misinterpret THE MESSAGE THAT BROTHER BRANHAM PREACHED.

    The article posted about BROTHER BRANHAM is a MISREPRESENTATION OF THE TRUTH.

    BROTHER BRANHAM was mightily used by God and pointed people to the WORD OF GOD.

    A true servant of God always points people to the TRUTH, TO THE WORD OF GOD, TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.

    John the Baptist pointed people to the LORD JESUS CHRIST. John the Baptist said “…He must increase , but I must increase…”. ( John 3 verse 30 ).

    “….BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD , WHICH TAKETH AWAY THE SIN OF THE WORLD….”. ( John 1 verse 29 ).

    We know that the SERPENT in the garden of Eden misrepresented the Truth and COATED the Word of God, and MISQUOTED THE WORD OF GOD to bring about SPIRITUAL DEATH TO THE HUMAN RACE IN GENESIS CHAPTER 3.

    BROTHER BRANHAM preached the WHOLE COUNSEL OF GOD.

    Thank God for faithful preachers and faithful prophets and faithful believers that do not compromise with ONE IOTA OF THE BIBLE.

  • ERROL SMYTHE

    Why do people tell lies about BROTHER BRANHAM ?

    BROTHER BRANHAM WAS A TRUE PROPHET OF THE LORD.

    There are MANY FALSE PROPHETS out there in the world today.BROTHER WILLIAM MARRION BRANHAM preached against false religions, false doctrines, false christs, fasle anointed ones and PREACHED THE WHOLE COUNSEL OF GOD to restore the ORIGINAL FAITH once delivered to the APOSTOLICA PENTECOSTAL FATHERS.( Malachi 4 verse 5; Jude 3; Amos 3 verse 7; Luke 17 verse 30 ; Revelation 10 verse 7 ; etc ).

    The devil is afraid of the WORD OF GOD AND TRUE SERVANTS OF THE LORD.

    BROTHER BRANHAM IN HIS LIFE AND MINISTRY WAS ONE TRUE PROPHET OF THE LORD TO LAODICEA.

    PRAISE GOD> ALL GLORY TO YESHUA, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST !

    Im living it, And it’s a nightmare! I married long time girlfriend whos family is deep into the message. These people give their money to the biggest crook, Billy Paul Branham.

    People, this is a cult! A scam for cash. Listened to many tapes and from the get-go Brother Branham sounds like a car salesman selling the fact that he is the word.

    Message people are brainwashed from a very early age. I put an end to the child brainwashing tapes/CDs that my son was forced to listen to every night. Thankfully, I have a sister inlaw who has been out, a brother inlaw who is getting out and a wife who is finally following suit. Followers of Bro are victims. THey have been washed, tricked, hoodwinked. It is sad that some peopl have dedicated their lives to him.

    Id love to goto church and get these people on a pyrimid scam! I could put Bros name on it and itll spread like wildfire.

    Again for those who really believe that William Marrion Branham is vindicated by God are truly decieved. First of all William Branham is a deluded heretic accepting himself as a prophet but he has major inconsistencies in his views and openly denounced the Trinity which is theologically scriptural and historically proven before Catholicism has corrupted it with paganism. Also you can look into it at the Didache Writings from A.D.60- The Teaching of the Twelve Apostles to the Nations which clarifies the original baptismal formula in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Using Malachi 4:5-6 as a reference to justify himself as Elijah when in the prophet Elijah was referred to as John the Baptist. Read Matthew 11:17, Matthew 17:10, Mark 9:11, Luke 1:17 and John 1:21. Also the same scripture in Malachi 4:5-6 indicates Israel will be restored as a people and a nation. This was established in May 14 1948 according to the prophecy of the Bible. Read Isaiah46:9-10, Ezekiel4:4-6, Ezekiel37:21 and Leviticus26:21,27-28,33. William Branham is a false teacher and prophet based on the inaccurate prophecies and predictions he claimed will come to pass which that did not happen. Read Deuteronomy13:1-2,5, Deuteronomy17:12, Deuteronomy18:20-22, Jeremiah14:14, Zechariah13:3, Matthew7:15, Matthew22:14, Matthew24:11,22,24,31, Luke18:7, John4:48, 2Thessalonians2:9 and there are more scriptures to verify Branham’s stance as a false prophet. Not to mention he also dabbled in the occultic sciences which explains the supernatural experiences he had as a child and throughout his life. Equating the Bible with the Zodiac and the Pyramids as the same by using clairvoyance seeing the supernatural through sight and clairaudience hearing the supernatural through audible voices. Read Isaiah1:10, Isaiah8:16,20,22, Micah3:6, Luke16:29 to see what William Branham put his trust in having a ministry that uses counterfeit signs and wonders using deception for those know how to test the spirits that are out there. William Branham’s death was a result of adding and taking away the very word of God that he was preaching also condemning himself at the process. See Matthew12:30-37 as a reference point. In all William Branham was a major proponent to many of the Word Faith teachers that has followed in his footsteps creating a false sense of spiritual discernment continuing to emphasize in added revelations and prophetic occurences that didn’t really take place.

  • Mark

    In addition to that William Branham was a Mason and he possessed the spirit of Antichrist Matthew 24:5,24,1John2:18,22-27, 1John4:3, 2John1:7. Also blasphemed against the Holy Ghost which he will never be forgiven for in this life nor in the life to come. See Matthew12:30-31, Mark3:29 Ephesians4:30. To say that a dead man can know anything it rather preposterous because they are not aware nor are they cognizant to understand what is happening around them. Read Ecclesiastes1:11, Ecclesiastes2:16,18,22, Ecclesiastes4:9, Ecclesiastes8:10,12,14 Ecclesiastes9:4,10,Job7:7, Job14:6-12,21, Job18:11-13, Psalm6:3, Psalm30:10,Psalm49:11, Psalm58:11, Psalm88:12, Psalm90:12, Psalm112:6, Isaiah14:9, Isaiah26:14, Isaiah63:16 and many more scriptures to clarify. Not to mention that William Branham used divination and other sources of occult healing as a guide to accompany the powers that was required for him to have but it was all under the guise of fallen angels.

  • Warren

    Let God be found true, and EVERY man a liar! The bible is the only absolute truth, and remember that the anti-Christ is the one who denies Jesus Christ. Whole, and pure truth is in the bible ( which has only 66 books by the way) – so learn to put all the man made teachings in the bin (since the bible teaches that every man is a liar), and read the bible only! Romans 3v4. These people who hold such men in high esteem need to get back to the pure milk of God’s word, and Glorify God alone.

  • Headley

    I believe William Branham to be a vindicated prophet of God, a careful look at history and bible will prove that to be true.

  • JOEL ADEO BA

    Its not enough to just say WILLIAM MARRION BRANHAM is a false prophet, because he differs with many on beliefs he is a man that has stood right with the PURE WORD OF GOD for any man or woman to call him a false prophet, I say such a one is standing in danger of hell. because none could disprove him even in the GREATER MINISTERIAL CHICAGO CONVENTION, over 300 hundred ministers were unable to fault him. its better people keep quiet if they don’t understand the man’s ministry

  • Samuel

    Having gone through all that you have said, i really doubt all that you said against William Marion Branham.you don’t believe in his message just leave it alone because for me am proud to know that i am in the bride message and all that he said was absolutely true.

    if you do not believe that God was in Christ reconciling the word to himself and that does not make him divided, the problem with you is that you believe in your dogmas and also leaning on your own understanding that is why u can not understand the mystery of the end time so please believed on what u depend on as for me i believe him to be the malachi 4 prophet and i believe his message becos his message is true.

  • Robbie

    Samuel wrote:

    In response to the 1977 prediction, Bro. Branham says in the book you quoted him from “I PREDICT (I do not prophesy) that theses visions will come to pass by 1977.” and Jesus said no man knoweth, not, no man can know. so if you half write quotes down to get your point across you only get blind eyed sinners listening to you and not spiritually driven individuals who love god as much as you do, but only love the idols they worship everyday. God bless all Brothers and Sisters in Christ. Stay with God, and don’t accept the words of people who call themselves Christians but really aren’t.

    If Brother Branham was a true prophet of God, why didn’t he die a true prophet’s death? Weren’t all the O.T. prophets stoned to death by their own people?

  • Werner

    The most obvious solution to this dilemma – I don’t think Debs or any of those opposed to Branham, base their belief on any church fathers, i.e. calvin, augustine etc. So I don’t know why this was mentioned…

    Further, assumption is the biggest desception, why is it assumed that some have gone to theological seminary? Allot of the comments under the articles on this blog fail to address the issue at hand…is it perhaps the lying spirits steering away from the truth? I don’t know, but none of these foolish posts have in any way been able to defend their lies and heresies.

    So, please, whether you have a PhD, or no education at all, at the end only God’s Word is sufficient to teach, reproof, correct, train, in rightteousness, 2 Tim 3:16, and only His Spirit can lead us into all truth, no education needed.

    It is in many ways those with education that fail to see the truth and follow the teachings of men… Psalm 118:8

    Most if not all the church fathers had some form of theology mixed with heretic doctrine, that is the problem with many churches, christians, and denominations like the Dutch Reformed Church here in South-Africa. The sure defence is to do as Jesus commanded, John 5:39, search the Scriptures, and the Bereans in Acts 17:11.

    Back to the heretic in question, many including Branham sought to restore three things that never existed, based on a distored exegesis of Eph4.

    The first of these is a restoration of apostolic authority. That is not the apostolic authority Jesus bestowed upon Paul and the twelve Apostles., but rather what amounts to a mono-episcopal heavy shepherding (I have seen this in CRC-London, when I lived there for a few years).

    The second feature they are trying to restore is a version of apostolic authority akin to the American Mike Bickel and the Kansas City false prophets, and not least of all Rick Joyner and Cindy Jacobs where pretended prophets can in God’s name predict time-spesific events that fail to happen with utter imputing, and still be revered as “prophets”…Deut. 18:22, Jer. 28:9, Ezek. 33:33.

    The third component of what they are trying to restore is Kingdom Now theology uniting hyper-calvinistic reconstructionism with latter rain/manifest sons heresies of certain ultra-pentecostals in the tradition of William Branham.

    Jude:9-10, Even Michael showed respect for authority, in sharp constrast to the false teahers who do not. Marc Bredenkamp is one local self proclaimed prophet who likes to tease Satan as well, beware… Rather than having superior knowledge as they claim, the false teachers have only brute animal knowledge..

    Follow God and not men, Rom3:4.

    It’s is truly funny how the people who exposed this hillbilly branham as a fraud has complete biblical proofs to back it up, yet those who oppose him do not do so. Branham was a quack, his followers are dyslexic and cannot read the bible. If the father of cain is the serpent why do we have this:

    genesis 4:1

    New International Version (©1984)
    Adam lay with his wife Eve, and she became pregnant and gave birth to Cain. She said, “With the help of the LORD I have brought forth a man.”

    New Living Translation (©2007)
    Now Adam had sexual relations with his wife, Eve, and she became pregnant. When she gave birth to Cain, she said, “With the LORD’s help, I have produced a man!”

    English Standard Version (©2001)
    Now Adam knew Eve his wife, and she conceived and bore Cain, saying, “I have gotten a man with the help of the LORD.”

    New American Standard Bible (©1995)
    Now the man had relations with his wife Eve, and she conceived and gave birth to Cain, and she said, “I have gotten a manchild with the help of the LORD.”

    King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)
    And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD.

    GOD’S WORD® Translation (©1995)
    Adam made love to his wife Eve. She became pregnant and gave birth to Cain. She said, “I have gotten the man that the LORD promised.”

    King James 2000 Bible (©2003)
    And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bore Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD.

    American King James Version
    And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bore Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD.

    Branham is not christian at all, he does not believe in the bible.

    Well i guess after reading this you wont need to hear about all the other fake,phony,conman things william branham did.

    Between the years 1958-1962 william branham molested/raped my father..

    it was very sad to hear him tell us the stories about what happened especially since he was on his death bed,he was not the only child that was molested he knew of many more and had heard stories about what william branham had done to children in south africa along with other leaders in the church.He also told us that william branham brought back several african children,we are not sure of this but have heard stories from others that he did indeed bring back children? still working on that one..but watching our father cry was so incredibly hard we always knew something had happened but didnt know what.those followers that are still alive and knew this are totally silent but we are not and will continue to tell others of what this false prophet did to our dad and others..william branham was satan if he was anything at all.you followers should be ashamed….

    HI TO ALL

    I would like to say one thing,on the day of jughment you will find out the truth and it will be to late.
    I believe the message that Br Willam Branham spoke and believe with all my heart that he is the 7 prophet for this age.

    SEE YOU ON JUGHMENT DAY BUT I HOPE YOU COME TO YOUR SCENSES BEFOR THEN.

  • Well, thanks for all the efforts to assemble this information and present it here and monitor the replies. By reading many of the comments here, I can see that you all are doing a good work. Continue contending earnestly for the faith which was once delivered to the saints. Of some have compassion, making a difference; and others save with fear pulling them out of the fire.

    For those here who are accusing others of not knowing the actual words B. Branham used in his sermons, I have to disagree with you. I started with an objective mind reading 4 – 5 hours of his message(s). I knew absolutely nothing about this minister, except that he was an author. Upon reading some of his sermons, some of his initial comments clearly detracted from the tri-une God, my yellow flags went up. I know for sure from more reliable teachers than myself, truly gifted expounders of the scripture, that the cults invariably are incorrect on the Godhead, or the person and work of Jesus Christ. Cautious, but still trying to be fair, I read longer because some of the church practices of the Message Believers are somewhat similar to my own. However, to allude that very few or little of God’s Teachers, Evangelists, Pastors, All gifts – spiritual giants from the past 2 millenniums – that we don’t stand on their shoulders, so we can understand, even more about God? [To ignore their God given contributions and say in so many words "they were unnecessary; I, B. Branham am now here! I am the one you have waited for!" "I want you to read between the lines." Anyway, the more I read, the more inconsistencies with the written scripture were presented. I kept seeing "I", "I", "I" and more "I's". I kept looking for him to say it's for the glory of God, but it didn't occur - at least not in the time span I read. Eventually, I was floored by his detailed directions to this young girl with appendicitis [first message 1947 on 2010 The Message Website],- what she had to do in order to have faith to be healed. She had to move an object suspended from the ceiling in 2 different directions from 15 feet away. Although, I didn’t stop reading then and there, I knew this was an occult practice. Then he proceeded to say “if you don’t believe in Divine healing, you are lost!!] I’m pretty sure Romans 10: 13 hasn’t changed “that whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Thankfully it’s still there; and I’ll definitely take God’s word over any man or denomination any day. Also, Romans 10:17 So, then faith cometh through hearing, and hearing through the word of God. Now, that’s the proper manner to build faith.

    Interesting, that he condemns every other church group’s government, doctrine and meeting agreements, but doesn’t realize that all these words he is uttering as “infallible”, is that… just a single man’s words, spun out of his mind which was influenced as detailed above by others during his life. In Proverbs it says, “In the multitude of counselors, there is safety”. The New Testament Church was to be governed by a group of elders, bishops or shepherds [whichever name you wish to use]. That way, no MAN can mislead or hijack the flock of God with sorcery, divination, mind control, etc., etc. Yes, the Bible has build in protection for God’s people.

    >> SEE YOU ON JUGHMENT DAY BUT I HOPE YOU COME TO YOUR SCENSES BEFOR THEN.

    Well we have a problem you see, only those who are WICKED land up at JUDGEMENT DAY – so good luck to you. I myself will be with caught up to Jesus in the air (before the tribulation) where I will be judged there, and then there will be the Marriage supper of the Lamb.

    I think you need to stop reading William Branhams nonsense and open your bible and read that instead :)

  • To insist that “he” opened the seals in Revelation and indicated that certain persons throughout the church history were “angels” is very strange indeed. If the simple interpretation of scripture makes sense, then seek no other interpretation. Also, I get the impression that there is an inclination for these folks to actually believe they are sinless; is that the case with the Branhamites?

    I just wish to say, this post isn’t intended to upset anyone. it’s rather to provide the problems I see with this “prophet” who “took the scroll when no one in heaven or earth was found worthy”. Now, that’s scary, blasphemous… and I encourage you to take a break from all the “teachings of this so called prophet” and simply do your own independent investigation of who Jesus Christ is. Make sure you have not opened your spirit to occultism and “another jesus”.

    In John it says, ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
    After reading and researching further, I am aware that these Message Believers have been petrified by fear of uttering ANY disagreement to this W. Branham. In Deuteronomy 18:18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. 19And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him. [Now that is Jesus the Christ]

    Deuteronomy 18: 20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die. 21And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken? 22When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him. Do not be afraid! Come boldly to the throne of mercy. W. Branham prophesied that Los Angeles would sink and that the ocean would cover the area. About 40 Message Believers left the area because of the prophecy made by W. Branham. It never came to pass. Therefore, those hungry for God, don’t be afraid; draw near to God and he will draw near to you.

    Last point: Message believers without maybe realizing it, maybe because it has been repeated over and over to them, will quote a verse then add extra verbiage, extra thoughts to explain what the verse means so others understand. However, God’s silence indicates for us to be silence, and those [forgive me] darn little fragments which don’t allow a theological position to be quite nailed down, don’t allow us to have pat answers for everything -don’t allow us to be so dogmatic, makes us study more, makes us more humble, more teachable, more willing to say I don’t know. Please stop adding to the word of God. [You may say, well you did it in John 1:1; no I gave the strong emphasis of the Greek words which includes "continuously?, and it is repeated in John 1:2].

    Revelation 22: 18- 21

    18 For I testify unto every man that hears the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. 20 He which testifies these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

    21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

    Thanks.only believe.

  • chika christian

    let me clear some misconceptions some people have about branham and his teachings…
    1. braham had little formal education,so his statements are often been misjudged by the so called learned wise preachers. his statements on pyramidology and zodiac are often quoted incompletely by his critics, he finished his statement by saying that these two are not be used by true believers, and you know why? because God’s wisdom and beauty which is evident in nature( which includes astronomy),has been misrepresented by the god of this world since his fall,so a believer should have nothing to do with it.the bible is the ultimate. branham”s notion on women is also misrepresented, totally blown out of context. read that sermon with divine wisdom and catch his drift. if you think he hates women then go ask his wife, daughter, and female members of the church or any woman at all that has had a direct contact with him. and for crying out loud, his mentioning of angels for any spiritual exercise is not a strange thing, ask st.john in the book of revelations.
    2. to believe in one God in 3 offices as father, son, holy ghost and not 3 divine persons in one God is not a heresy. trinity itself is a theological contradiction.God is A spirit jn4v24,He is holy, He is the Holy ghost. He dwells in a tabernacle he made himself by his own name- Jesus. pls study these scriptures carefully: 1tim.3v16,2cor.5v19, col.3v17,jn5v47, to mention but a few. Water baptism MUST be in the name of Jesus Christ, the apostles understood the commission given to them in Matt.28v19, read all through the ACTS of the apostles and see for yourselves how they baptised.
    3. the serpent seed doctrine is known even by the jewish rabbis of jesus time. read jn.8v40-44. the serpent has a seed just as the woman also has a seed, and the 2 seeds are at enmity. cain was of the wicked one, he wasnt in the lineage of the sons of God like adam and seth. EAT is a symbolic term for sexual intercourse as seen in prov.30v20,2sam.12v1-9…….look,if you really want to know truth about the endtime msg visit contender.org or thebrideassembly.org
    3. i am dissappointed by some so called believers in the endtime msg that have misrepresented the msg by deifying branham. this is wrong and satanic. May God forgive them. Yet indeed, branham is a true prophet of God to this age.

  • JOS

    My father, who is now 65, just gave me a tearful confession that he was molested by William Branham when he met him in Yakima, Wa back in the 50′s. He said his parents, who were Believers, would not listen to him and so he kept quiet about it for decades. I am investigating this further but would like to know if anyone else has heard similar stories.

  • Hellen

    Brother Branham is a TRUE prophet of God. A prophet simply points a way to Christ. Never at one time did he elevate himself. He only explained the scriptures we could not be able to understand. We believers simply read his messages because it helps us understand the Bible better. I personally can say that I enjoy my Bible everyday. God bless you all.

    >> Brother Branham is a TRUE prophet of God. A prophet simply points a way to Christ.

    You are unfortunately wrong, you see its the Holy Spirit’s job to point us the way to Jesus Christ and it says so in the bible.

    The Holy Spirit is Helper our Comforter and our Counsellor

    John 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
    John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
    John 15:26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

    I do not see William Branham’s name in the bible do you??

    Its really a shame that a certain man of God wants to despise other fellows for a prime benefit of popularity.

  • Our prophet is Jesus Christ. He is our priesthood and our Lord. There is no one else. The trinity is a prove fact, when God said lets create them in the image of us, who is us, but God, the holy spirit, and Jesus. whom the world was created through.

    Hi Deborah,I’ve just found this part of your site and have been reading though it. I love your energy and consistency when it comes to contending for the faith once delivered.
    I’d never heard of this Brother Branham before reading the above comments. It’s amazing how cults all function in the same way. I was “educated” in the world’s largest cult (Roman Catholicism) as a schoolboy and joined another in my late twenties run buy Herbert W. Armstong.
    The comments above from the Branhamites are similar to those I have heard from Catholics and Armstrongites–and people from other cults like JWs, Mormons, Calvinsts, &c.,–inasmuch as their leader is their god. They can never see it–as can be seen in the comments from the followers of Branham. Whatever we put before God becomes our god especially a person because he as seen as infallible. Though cultists claim to follow the Bible it must be subject to the “teachings” of these heretical leaders.
    I know how those poor Branhamites would be horrified finding their leader termed a heretic–which would be a beheading for a Moslem on saying the same thing of Mohammad.
    I can remember as a child taking offence at any derogatory statements against the pope, even when they were true. I wouldn’t have been able to accept that they were true. Later on, I was a bit the same with statements contradicting Armstrong until he got so wide off the mark that I started to see he was a quack.
    On looking back on my schooldays and my days in Armstrong’s cult, I am astonished that I could have believed anything any pope or an ignoramus like Armstrong taught.
    Who knows? Through God’s grace perhaps some of the Branhamites may waken up. Millions of Catholics have and so have many former Armstrongites. And the same goes for people caught up in other cults. Moslems and Calvinists are coming to Christ too. People in abusive religions can do so when they realize that all men are fallible and susceptible to the devil’s cunning. When people realize that no leader is any greater in God’s sight than they themselves, and are merely sinners saved by grace, the light begins to dawn.
    Keep up your contending for the faith. You may help to lead some Branhamites to the truth. Those of us reading this part of the site can and ought to pray for that. I will. God bless and thanks for your thought-provoking comments.

Yes please pray for these people, the number of comments I actually delete from this section (because of threats, and nonsense ramblings) that you don’t see is frightening. There are so many of these Branhamites out there. They need much prayer. They are caught up in a terrible cult, and I think it Branham was a live today and convinced his followers to kill themselves they would, for him.

    I once heard a teacher say: “When you are deceived, you don’t know that you are deceived, because you are deceived.” What a terribly sad place to be. There might be times when it feels that all our efforts to share, minister or correct is of no use. But, we must keep doing it (and allow God to keep changing our hearts and give us a true passion for those who have been deceived), because we never know when that word or action that seemed to have fallen on deaf ears, might eventaully become a tiny part in lifting the veil from someone’s eyes.

    Hi Martin

    What you share here is very interesting. From my research into Jesuits, Illuminati etc it reveals that most (maybe all) of the cults you mentioned were set up by agents of Rome, designed to destroy protestant Christianity. They have tried different methods including infiltration, pretence and setting up counterfeit streams of christianity.

    Here are the instructions given to junior Jesuits before they take the Jesuit oath:

    Superior:
    “My son, heretofore you have been taught to act the dissembler: among Roman Catholics to be a Roman Catholic, and to be a spy even among your own brethren; to believe no man, to trust no man. Among the Reformers, to be a reformer; among the Huguenots, to be a Huguenot; among the Calvinists, to be a Calvinist; among other Protestants, generally to be a Protestant, and obtaining their confidence, to seek even to preach from their pulpits, and to denounce with all the vehemence in your nature our Holy Religion and the Pope; and even to descend so low as to become a Jew among Jews, that you might be enabled to gather together all information for the benefit of your Order as a faithful soldier of the Pope.

    You have been taught to insidiously plant the seeds of jealousy and hatred between communities, provinces, states that were at peace, and incite them to deeds of blood, involving them in war with each other, and to create revolutions and civil wars in countries that were independent and prosperous, cultivating the arts and the sciences and enjoying the blessings of peace. To take sides with the combatants and to act secretly with your brother Jesuit, who might be engaged on the other side, but openly opposed to that with which you might be connected, only that the Church might be the gainer in the end, in the conditions fixed in the treaties for peace and that the end justifies the means.

    You have been taught your duty as a spy, to gather all statistics, facts and information in your power from every source; to ingratiate yourself into the confidence of the family circle of Protestants and heretics of every class and character, as well as that of the merchant, the banker, the lawyer, among the schools and universities, in parliaments and legislatures, and the judiciaries and councils of state, and to be all things to all men, for the Pope’s sake, whose servants we are unto death.

    You have received all your instructions heretofore as a novice, a neophyte, and have served as co-adjurer, confessor and priest, but you have not yet been invested with all that is necessary to command in the Army of Loyola in the service of the Pope. You must serve the proper time as the instrument and executioner as directed by your superiors; for none can command here who has not consecrated his labors with the blood of the heretic; for “without the shedding of blood no man can be saved.” Therefore, to fit yourself for your work and make your own salvation sure, you will, in addition to your former oath of obedience to your order and allegiance to the Pope, repeat after me—”

  • Enoch Dahal

    @ j w adams:
    With all his claims and teachings, with all his doctrines about the Lord Jesus and the Truth of the one coexisting Truine God revealed in the Scriptures, His prophesies and expositions, I have no doubt that that William Branham is a False Teacher mentioned in 2 Peter 2 and Jude.
    What strange teaching is it? A false teacher doesn’t necessarily speak lies all the time but he speaks partial truth to deceive those simple ones. Oh! deceivers and those being deceived, know certainly that Pentecostalism is delusion as Mormonism and Jehovah witness. But there are some group of pentecostals who are safe and good believers who believe on the fundamental truth of the Holy Scripture.
    Joseph Smith claimed to be a prophet and he is a liar as Mohammed of islam is a false prophet. When the entire Scripture is given and the Holy Spirit of God is with us, we don’t need prophets who see visions and revelations.
    There is another Jesus of 2 Corinthians 11 with different but similar looking gospel and they who believe receive different spirit. What Jesus did Brahham believe and preach? What angel revealed him such strange teachings.

Cultism spread faster than the truth. For narrow is the path that walk in them and few find them.

  • Enoch Dahal

    @ paul weller:
    You are absolutely right brother Paul Weller; Branham is not a christian at all. There are not one or two, one dozen or two dozen cult leaders (false prophets) but hundreds and those unstable victims are in their trap helpless. Let them know that Jesus Christ our Lord is there to help them if they repent and believe on Him and come out of the Cult.

  • Imredeemed

    I use to be a MBeliever for a couple of months. man, wasnt the “message” addictive, i’d always play the sermons and feel satisfied. reading the bible wasnt “necessary” since i trusted in branham. Anyways, during the time i started noticing some minor contradictions.. like he said napoleon died an alcoholic. Well, you can read for yourself and see if that was the cause of death (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Napoleon). He was “endorsed” by a mormon who believed he was a true prophet and i think he was mentioned in the book of mormons. Serpent seed doctrine. Opening up one scripture to our own interpretation has always been known to inject all kinds of human misinterprations (eg JWs, Mormons, Seventh day adventist {who believe sunday worshippers have the mark of the beast,, according to prophetess Ellen White} etc). Bro George’s testimony of Branham “seeing” a deceased guy seated in the same room with the mourners. Also there was a prophecy going around by Kenneth Hagin claiming branham was taken out in 1965 for leading the body of Christ astray. It was getting too complicated to put trust on a dead man. through a lot of prayers and what i’d call the help of the Holy Spirit i walked out of the message and found freedom in Christ. I’m safe with Jesus i dont need any intermediary/ system to get to Him. He made it very clear by accepting to be sin, dying on the cross and raising again and He is seated at the right of the Father. I still have close friends/family still on it im praying that the Lord will show them the light. God bless

  • Amanda

    Thank you for the information in this article. I was raised in a home that believed in William Branham and my parents are still snowed by his false teachings. I always knew something wasn’t correct but as a child of course no one told you the real story of what he believed. I can attest to the fact that those churches are women haters. The women had to toe the line and the men could still wear current styles and go swimming in shorts. The women were not allowed to testify too much or else they were accused of preaching. I have found a relationship with Jesus past my childhood and I am so thankful God didn’t let me be deceived like so many others.

  • I recently started attending church at one the branham churches. One of the first sermons I heard was about the serpent seed. This really troubled me coz I know for a fact that no where in the Bible does it say that Cain was the by product of sex between eve and the serpent.
    I truly love the word of God and find it to be unparalleled and I believe every word written in the Bible. So much so that I even researched it and foud some amazing facts about the Bible. One thing I found out was that there are hidden codes in the Bible and one such code is called equal distant letter sequencing which is used in the 5 books of Moses called the TORAH. This code is used by skipping a certain amount of letters to form a word, phrase or sentence.
    In Genesis & Exodus every 49th letter spells out the word TORH, in Numbers and Deuteronomy it spells out HROT which is TORH backwards & in the middle of these four books is Leviticus. Every 7th letter in Leviticus spells YHWH. So you would get this if you lay it out:
    TORH, TORH -> YHWH <- HROT, HROT
    This is only true of the original Hebrew text. Another interesting fact is that every verse in the TORAH has a numerical value divisible by 7.
    The reason why I mention this particular code is if we are to believe that Cain was the offspring of the serpent then you have to delete certain verse and Genesis 4:1would have different wording therefore you won’t get the word TORH.
    Just a point of interest: its been discovered that it would take 20 super computers 3000yrs to accomplish all this.

    The claim that branham makes of ushering in the second coming of Christ is very unlikely simply because any prophesy of Jesus Christ was always brought by an angel that is named, namely Gabriel. Whether it be to Daniel with the 70 weeks prophecy or Mary and Joseph, Gabriel is always the angel to bring a message about the Messiah.
    The end will only come if the gospel is preached to the entire world as Matthew 24:14 reads “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all nations, and then the end will come”. Paul tells us exactly what the gospel is in 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 “For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures and that He was buried; and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.” Paul also says in Galatians 1:8 “But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.”

    Then one has to consider branham saying that he hated women. 1 John 4:7 reads “Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God” verse 8 continues with “He who does not love does not know God, for God is love,” Now one of the attributes of love is that its kind Corinthians 13:4. does branham show kindness by declaring hatred towards another human being? I don’t care how big your sin is God demands that we love one another the way He loved us. Paul who, in his own words, was the chief of sinners was used by God in a very powerful way. How can a non believer ever accept the gospel if a man of God says I hate you. Sorry but Satan hates and God loves.

  • Concerning the Godhead, the mostfamous verese in the Bible reads “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” John 3:16. Now if there was a Jesus only then that verse would have read differently…more like “For I so loved the world that I gave myself up…” you get the point. No where in the Bible does Jesus say that He is God only that He and the Father are One Jonh 10:30. Jesus repeatedly says that He says nothing but that which the Father instructed Him to say which is tied to Deuteronomy 18:15-22.
    Concerning the Holy Spirit Jesus said He can’t senf Him until Jesus Himself has left John 16:7.
    Going back to my previous comment about what the gospel is, it’s interesting to note that when Paul refers to the Scripture he is referring to the Old Testament just like Jesus did when He said they seek the scriptures but they speak of Him John 5:39.
    Now one way the Scriptures speak of Him is in some verses for eg in Genesis when Abraham sends his servant (who is unnamed in Genesis 24) to find a bride for Isaac.
    Abraham is in the role of the Father, Isaac the Son and the unnamed servant in the role of the Holy Spirit & Rebekah the role of the church. Clearly there are three different persons.
    With branham’s teaching all this effort the Holy Spirit made to align God’s purpose with historical events would prove to be a lie. Clearly from this there are 3.
    I strongly believe in the Godhead three in one. They in such unity that they are referred to as One.

    A point of fact for the branhamites: Elhohim is plural for El as cherubim is plural for cherub. In Genesis 1:26 the words Us & Our refers to more than one, that verse refers to EL, Yeshua and Holy Spirit.

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    Lister

    Bible code is like divination. It’s not right. Just because there are SUPPOSEDLY codes found in the TORAH does not mean it’s ok. And notice who found the codes? Rabbis, not Christians. Bible codes leads people down another path, where they spend their time search for secret codes instead of the Word of God that’s right in front of them.

  • Deborah

    I disagree with you. The Bible actually encourages us to search for such codes. Proverbs 25:2 reads “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter”
    Another example is Genesis 5 where a summary of the gospel is hidden in the names of the persons listed in that chapter.

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    Lister

    >> Proverbs 25:2 reads “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter”

    No Lister, you misunderstand scripture. This verse means that more than once in the Bible our attention has been called to the thing of Gods that are difficult to fathom like. (See Deuteronomy 29:29 and Romans 11:33-34). As the heavens are high above the earth, so are His thoughts way above our we are so tiny in comparison to Him. It is God’s nature to conceal His wondrous purposes from mankind’s ongoing curiosity. And He does this because for the specific reason that He wants all those in ‘authority’ to earnesty search His Word that they may find out His will and his mind. What a great thing it is to read and study the Word of God. As we delve into His hidden things within the Word of God, so God also searches our hearts. He keeps His own secrets, revealing them only to a chosen few – Kings. Now who are these King, who are these ‘authority’, well the are none other than us, saints. Therefore God will communicate His mind to each one of us who “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15)

    This verse is soley speaking about the Word of God listen not codes hiden within it. No code in the bible can save you. Only the Word of God can do that.

    >> Another example is Genesis 5 where a summary of the gospel is hidden in the names of the persons listed in that chapter.

    I do not understand what you mean.

    A demonic nut-job. Many years ago we had this guy at our church that believed in this “Serpent Seed” heresy. He taught in one of the adult Sunday School classes. When he taught this, I asked, “where in the world did you get that stuff from? I said there is no where in scripture that this heresy is taught. He said he “discovered” it after many years of studying the Bible. The a few years after that I read an article about Branham’s false teaching. My “ex” husband was the nephew of our Pastor and he went and talked to him after church. The man was removed from teaching Sunday School and he and his wife left our church after that…thank God.

    God wants us to line our hearts up wit the word. So if I have a lot if anger or any other sin in ur heart still. That proves u ain’t got the Holy Ghost. We must b fully converted. Like Jesus told Peter. ” I pray for u Peter when u get converted. That u go and strengthen ur brothers” amen. Jesus I king of ALL kings Lord of all lords!!!!!

    When you aint got the Holy Spirit it means you are not saved. Are you suggesting that Peter was not saved when he denied his Lord? If so, then Jesus was lying when He said to Peter: “Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet? Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter. Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me. Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head. Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.” (John 13:6-10)

  • I thank God for taking my wife and I out of the cult popularly known as Branhamism aka The Message.
    There is currently the largest exodus occurring and the cult is beginning to lose its following. There are websites that were 100% pro William Branham, that have recanted their stance and called his whole ministry false. Another website was started by believers who wanted to prove them wrong and they too have just eaten a huge chunk of humble pie. They don’t vast amounts of research, from state libraries and universities. They dug up records and census, all of which shamelessly contradict Branham.

    Branham said that he saw a vision of 16 men falling to their death during the construction of the Municipal Bridge when he was just a boy. Records prove that it cost $5 million to build the bridge and only two deaths were reported. False prophecy n umber one.

    Another bit of research that was done was on the Cloud. Branham said that he was under the cloud when it appeared and that contradicts the records of the area where he would have been hunting. According the records, hunting season only began a week after Branham claimed to have been there, and there is no way he could have been hunting there out of season. Apart from the story of how many angels were present changing from five to seven, Branham claimed that the Hoffman’s painting of Christ would fit perfectly into the cloud once turned on its side. What most Branhamites don’t know is that the Hoffman’s head had to be flipped around in order for it to fit the cloud. Instead of the face looking towards the right, it was doctored to face the left. False prophecy number two.

    There is a long list of false prophecies.

    The description of his angel changed dramatically over the years, at one point his angel wore a turban and looked Indian. Branham never gave a clear description of this angel and neither did he ever disclose the name of this angel.

    William Branhamsbirth date is unclear, he claims to be born on April 6, 1909 and attributes that to a fortune teller who told him about the special sign he was born under. Yet, on his marriage certificate to his first wife, he wrote his birth date as April 8, 1908.

    Branham had ties with the Masons and the KKK, he held services in Masonic temple.

    97 If the early church was Catholic, then why have they changed, when the early Catholic condemned it and this Catholic accepts it? It’s a woman’s world, the spirits and the slogans is today, and that’s true. That is exactly right. And I predict that a woman will be a great woman. You younger people here tonight, remember Brother Branham has said this. And I said it in ’33 when I saw the coming of the Lord. And how the automobiles would continually shape up like an egg, until finally they would come into a perfect egg shape. Maybe part of you here knows; it’s written on old papers and things the morning when we was over here at the little Masonic temple, where we were having the–the parsonage over here on–on the next, second street over, where I was having the meetings…

    Notice he uses the number 33 while referring to a Masonic temple he was at. In the Masonic cult, the 33rd degree is the highest order achievable. What does this tell you about Branham? A man who denied the Deity of Jesus Christ by calling Him man before his baptism and a man at His crucifixion. Branham taught that the pyramids were built by Enoch and that the pyramid and capstone on the American one dollar bill was the all seeing eye of God! Its a Masonic symbol!

    I thank God I have left this cult and I hope many will come out of it quickly. Here are a few helpful websites created by former Braanhamites…

  • Donald Parnell is another shark. Him, Kacau Phillipe, Edgar Roscoe, Ed Byskal, the late Joseph Coleman and Richard Gan. All of these men are working hard to establish themselves as “eighth messengers” after Branham. Branham claimed to be the seventh messenger to the Laodicean Church.
    Its hard for me to accept that I believed this satanic doctrine for so many years.

    It’s absolutely wonderful to hear that you and your wife escaped out of the clutches of this cult. We can only thank Jesus for looking after you.
    Thank you for those website and thank you for the information you provided, I have no doubt the man was a freemason when I look at the info.

    When we look back at our lives it is hard to believe where we come from and sometimes we become sad thinking we wasted so much time and the heartache sets in for a while as we struggle to come to terms with our past, but Jesus has forgiven us! This I know! And we have to look at who we are now and who we are in Jesus Christ – a new person, a child of God, with a glorious future a head of us.

  • Micheline

    It is always interesting to see how some people “glorify” their favourite preachers and protect them with all their might.

    Maybe a little MORE glorifying of GOD is needed and LESS of any sinful man.

  • Ray kariyen

    I am glad you have done so much research and trying so hard to prove that a man sent from God is wrong. I wish you well because the very day that the Lord walked this earth they called him all kinds of names and said what you are saying.
    I go to the church and I can assure you that I am not following a man. Just as Moses was a man and beliveing in what he wrote does not mean I worship a man or he is a devil for that matter, even though he killed.
    If there are no people of your callibre then the Bible will be wrong and it cannot be wrong for you or people that cannot live a rightous life.
    Last, once again I wish you well and rember every slander of yours because on the day jugment it will play before you.

    >> I wish you well because the very day that the Lord walked this earth they called him all kinds of names and said what you are saying.

    Jesus Christ never ever preaches false teaching like William Branham did, so to compare the two is blasphemous.

    >> I go to the church and I can assure you that I am not following a man.Just as Moses was a man and beliveing in what he wrote does not mean I worship a man or he is a devil for that matter, even though he killed.

    Yes you are following a man. You see Moses was IN THE BIBLE, he was a type of Christ between the Israelies and God. William Branham is not mentioned in the bible and never will be. You are following his teachings instead of what is written in the bible by God Himself.

    >> If there are no people of your callibre then the Bible will be wrong and it cannot be wrong for you or people that cannot live a rightous life.

    I have no idea what you are trying to say, but the Bible is the Word of God, and the Word of God is Jesus Christ in published form, Jesus Christ is God and the Bible is our Authority.

    >> Last, once again I wish you well and rember every slander of yours because on the day jugment it will play before you.

    I wont be there on judgement day, I am a born again Christian saved by Jesus Christ who shed His blood for me at Calvary, He died, was buried and resurrected 3 days later and then ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of our Heavenly Father.

    What did William Branham do for you?

  • Lee

    John the baptist was spoken of in Malachi 4:6 and the book of Matthew and Luke, now let’s look at proper context instead of twisting of words, because Branham’s followers have been indoctrinated by a cult, I will have to speak to them in very small simple words, not to make fun of them,but because Branham’s followers as well as oneness pentecostals are unlearned when it comes to proper exegesis of scripture.

    We will look at luke and Malachi and Matthew

    Luke 1:13 But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John.

    (( John who ? John the baptist who is the son of Zacharias and Elisabeth. ))

    Luke 1:14 And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth.

    ((whose birth ? John the baptist birth look see Luke 1:13 for details))

    1:15 For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother’s womb

    (( He shall be filled with the Holy Ghost ? He who ? John the baptist. From his mother’s womb ? Whose womb ? Elisabeth’s womb. who is Elisabeth ? John the baptists mom))

    1:16 And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God

    (( children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God. He ? John the baptist ! ))

    1:17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias , to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.

    ((( he shall go before him in spirit and power of Elias so now we must take verse 17 out of context and switch from John the Baptist to WILLIAM BRANHAM ???? In proper context of scripture verse 17 just as the other three verses all speak of John the Baptist. And verse 17 connects with Malachi )))

    Compare Malachi 4:6 with Luke 1:17 and we find the words prophesied in Malachi 4:6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children is also found of John the baptist in Luke 1:17. But of course let’s ignore scripture and proper exegesis for some nut job who claimed he had magical powers !

    Malachi 4:6 *And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children and the heart of the children to their fathers* , lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

    Luke 1:17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, *to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children* and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.

    You can’t take scripture that speaks of john the baptist and then change it into a false prophet named William Branham people.

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    Wow, now that is interesting Lee, I didn’t even know that.

  • Bro Moses Mbogo

    Hallelujah there is no heavenly sent messager who never suffered this before.u r not the 1st critic neither will u be the last..my free advice believe the seventh angel messenger(WIILIAM MARRION BRANHAM) OR DIE! take it or live it..otherwise my friend you just did the worst

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    Bro Moses

    >> OR DIE!

    Oh my word, I am shivering in my boots.

    Jeremiah 23:30-32
    30 Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that steal my words every one from his neighbour.
    31 Behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that use their tongues, and say, He saith.
    32 Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams, saith the LORD, and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their lightness; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore they shall not profit this people at all, saith the LORD.
