WILLIAM BRANHAM


This is what William Branham had to say about the doctrine of the Holy trinity:
"a doctrine of demons"
(The Toronto Blessing, Stephen Sizer, 1990)

William Branham said that Eve's sin involved sexual relations with the serpent, but the "seed of God" were Branham's followers, otherwise known as "the Bride" or "the New Breed"
(The Toronto Blessing, Stephen Sizer, 1990)

"Now my precious brothers - I know this is a tape also. Now don't get excited. Let me say this with Godly love. The hours approached where I can't hold still on these things no more... Trinitarianism is of the devil. I tell you that - Thus saith the Lord."
(William Branham, Footprints on the Sands of Time: The autobiography of William Marrion Branham, Part Two
(Jeffersonville, IN: Spoken Word Publications, 1975), 606-7.)

"Why don't you examine your baptism of Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, and that false 'trinity' it's so-called..."
(William Braham, "Revelation Chapter Four #3 (Throne of Mercy and Judgment)" (Voice of God Recordings, Inc., 1961, audio tape #61-0108, side 2).

The angel spoke to William Branham saying: "Fear not. I am sent from the presence of Almighty God to tell you that your particular life and your misunderstood ways have been to indicate that God has sent you to take a gift of divine healing to the people of the world. If you will be sincere, and can get the people to believe you, nothing shall stand before your prayer, not even cancer."
(Harrell, All Things Are Possible, 28)

William Branham falsely prophesied: "that by 1977 all denominations would be consumed by the World Council of Churches under the control of the Roman Catholics, that the rapture would take place, and that the world would be destroyed."
(Burgess and McGee, Pentecostal and Charismatic Movements, 96)

William Branham insisted that "believers baptized by a Trinitarian formula must be rebaptized in the name of Jesus only."
(Burgess and McGee, Pentecostal and Charismatic Movements, 95-96)

Branham explained, "...not one place in the Bible is trinity ever mentioned...It's Catholic error and you Protestants bow to it"
(William Branham, Conduct, Order, Doctrine Q and A, p. 182)

"Father, Son, and Holy Ghost is offices of one God. He was the Father; He was the Son; He is the Holy Ghost. It's three offices or three dispensations,..."
(William Branham, Conduct, Order, Doctrine Q and A, p. 392).

William Branham's false heretical view of the Godhead is called Modalism

"Here is what actually happened in the Garden of Eden. The Word says that Eve was beguiled by the serpent. She was actually seduced by the serpent. He was as close to being a human that his seed could, and did mingle with that of the woman and cause her to conceive"
(William Branham, The Original Sin, pp. 2, 3)

"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"
(William Branham, Footprints On The Sands Of Time, p. 214)

When Branham was baptizing 130 converts in the Ohio River, (allegedly) a heavenly light, like a blazing star, appeared above him just as he was about to baptize the seventeenth person ... it has also been reported that a voice spoke from within the light, saying, "As John the Baptist was sent to forerun the first coming of the Lord, so you are sent to forerun His second coming..."
(The Enigma Of William Branham)

By the 1960's, Branham had clearly become convinced that he was the end-times "Elijah" and the true "Messenger of the Covenant".
(The Enigma Of William Branham)

It was (later in his ministry) that Branham began to gradually withdraw into his own little circle, where he had an adoring and loyal following. (Essentially this circle was made up of "Oneness" or 'Jesus-Only' Pentecostals). And instead of his previous unwillingness to speak about contentious or divisive 'minor' issues, he now gradually began to emphasize such things more and more in his preaching. Slowly, these teachings became ever-more alarming and extreme. (The Enigma Of William Branham)

Branham taught that the Word of God was given in three forms, the zodiac, the Egyptian pyramids, and the written scripture.
(Al Dager, Vengeance is Ours, Sword, Page 59)

To date, William Branham's body is still in the grave. But, his occult methodology of healing was picked up by hundreds of pastors and teachers upon whom he had laid his hands and who have traded on it to a greater or lesser degree.
(Al Dager, Vengeance is Ours, Sword)

Years ago (William Branham) told his interpreter, Pastor Ruff, "If my angel does not give the sign, I cannot heal." Ruff noticed several features of spiritism in the work of Branham, and therefore stopped working with him. These "angels" of whom (Harry) Edwards and Branham spoke are evil spirits masquerading as angels of light. As in many areas of the occult, we are here reminded again that the devil appears as an angel of light (2 Cor. 11:14) Another evidence is the fact that neither Edwards nor Branham were able to perform cures when faced with born-again Christians who had committed themselves to the protection of Christ. In the case of Branham, I have experienced this myself. When he spoke in Karlsruhe and Lausanne, there were several believers among the audience -- including myself -- who prayed along these lines: "Lord, if this man's powers are from You, then bless and use him, but if the healing gifts are not from You, then hinder him." The result? On both occasions Brnahm said from the platform, "There are disturbing powers here. I can do nothing."
(Kurt Koch, Occult ABC, 1978, p. 235)

"The most remarkable "messiah" at (the time of the writing of this book) ... is to be found at camp Manujothi Ashram in the desert in South India. It is the extreme American evangelist, William Branham, whom Christians have to thank for this false messiah. His name is Paluser Lawrie Mathukrishna. When Branham was on (a) tour of India, Brother Lawrie became a disciple of his, and Branham described him as the "Son of God" and "Christ returned". This is a very curious situation. Why would the "Son of God" and "Christ returned" be the disciple of a man like Branham? Shouldn't it have been the other way around? Or maybe it was. Perhaps this is an important connection between hinduism and kundalini and the the modern "counterfeit" revival. Perhaps this is where Branham, one of the fathers of the Third Wave movement, picked up the ability to pass along kundalini-type manifestations. Perhaps this is where he picked up a demonic spirit, because it is "reported that towards the end, some of his teachings almost bordered on the occult."

As a former believer in the Branham Message I can say that I liked your post. His followers say that there was no evidence his gift was fake.That is true, however there is no evidence that it wasn't either.I don't think he used an earwig as has been pointed out on many websites,it was too early for that kind of technology, but he did use "prayer cards"and had a whole day to study them before the service that evening. I'm not saying thats what he did but it is highly suspect in my opinion, but it is a little late in the day to do an investigation, isn't it?I also found several times on recorded services where he completely missed it, when he got the peoples names and sickness wrong. How do we explain that? In conclusion, If his "gift" was real and he wasn't faking it, he wasn't 100% accurate as his followers claim, was he?

I had never heard the story of the guy in India and of the Khundalini connection before this, but I made the connection to the occult(and I mean that in the context of "hidden Knowledge") When I studied his pyramid teaching and the fact that he claimed to be caught up in a pyramid when he supposedly got the revelation of the "Seven Seals"There was also his "3 high holy words" he said no mortal on earth knew, except him of course.These are all ideas connected with The Mystery Schools of Babylon, so I'm sure there is a connection with The Free Masons, which he said"it was o.k. to be one", and you would think that he would have not condoned them,if he was a "Prophet".Just a little food for thought, Kind Regards,Steve
