Lies Against William Branham And His Ministry
God seeks true worshippers to worship Him who remain the same Yesterday, Today and Forever, in spirit and in truth. Heb. 13:8, John 4:23.
Led by a star, the wise men found the Lord Jesus Christ and worshipped Him in their day. In every age God has true worshippers that look to the star of their age to lead them to Christ the Word, to worship Him in spirit and in truth. God promised in the last day, the Laodicean Church Age, to send a star/messenger to the children to turn their hearts back to the faith of the fathers. Mal. 4:5&6. Careful study of this passage of scripture speaks of a star/messenger to come before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord. This Malachi's Elijah was fulfilled in William Marion Branham, the seventh and last Gentile Church Age Messenger, whose ministry fulfilled Mal. 4:5&6, Rev. 10:7, Rev. 3:14-22, Rev. 18:4, Mat. 17:11 and other scriptures. He was a man sent from God. The Elijah spirit of Mal. 4:5&6, Mat. 17:11, rested upon William Branham, a true vindicated prophet of God, to restore all things and to turn the hearts of the children back to the Pentecostal fathers. Acts 2.
NO SUCH THING AS BRANHAMITES
Believers of this end-time message are branded as Branhamites though they are true believers in the Lord Jesus Christ. Restored Bible Truths Association disclaim this. There is no such a church name anywhere. This is the title of reproach attached to believers by false anointed ones in the organizational realm to give them the appearance of a cult and worshippers of a man and not the Lord Jesus Christ.
Restored Bible Truths Association gave an open challenge over the airwaves in October 2000 to all organizations, lying pastors, superintendents and preachers and to all having such opinions to prove their allegations. To date, none came forward. We again send forth this challenge by this to show us a Branhamite or a church called Branhamite, where the man called Branham is worshipped. If they cannot do so they are proven to be lying, jealous, envious preachers, grievous wolves against the God given ministry of William Branham who raised the dead, healed the sick, cast out demons spirits. Signs and miracles always accompanied his ministry which was attended by an angel who was photographed and scientifically proven to be true.
FALSE CLAIMS OF THE WICKED ONES
Because false prophets wanted to gain prestige for themselves and adhere to their organizational misinterpretations of the word they marked him as being backslidden when he exposed their errors and money begging spirits. Their proof is that he was taken away in an accident. According to them, Paul, Peter and Isaiah were false because they all had un-natural deaths. Show us what sin Brother Branham committed. He never drank, smoke, committed adultery or fleece his congregation for money but they have done these things. We have proofs of their desecrated, filthy lives of adultery, drunkenness, money schemes and such like.
This lying backslidden concept was formulated by men like Alexander the Coppersmith and Hymeneus in the USA and exported to others around the world. They also accused him of being one of the greatest mediums in the world because he could see visions and foretold events and they could not. Their tricks were exposed. Wasn't Jesus called the head medium when he was called Beelzebub the Prince of Devils? Are they so scripturally ignorant by education they got from Bible schools that they cannot discern the signs of a prophet? Deut. 18.
What would they say about Jesus when he discerned Nathaniel in John 1:47-49, or the woman at the well in John 4.
Did not three hundred and fifty ministers of the Greater Chicago Ministerial Association in Chicago USA set a trap for him and were exposed? These same preachers could not defend their doctrines on water baptism, women preachers, the serpent seed, Bible schools, preachers license, moral conduct and dressing of women. When put to a showdown, some of them acted like hypocrites, promised to be re-baptized when they were convicted and never showed up. (Ref. Sirs Is This The Time. December 30, 1963, Jeff. Ind)
Such men exported their damnable lies to the world. They became more heretical in their teachings and their loose lives became a stumbling to many who will enter in. Even one of their greatest evangelist died of drunkenness. By their lies, misinterpretations and partiality they have labeled God's true anointed prophet as false. They also stigmatized him as an occult mystic like Edgar Cayee (a mystic guru who went into trances, acting as a medium for demonic spirits) because he could have read their thoughts. They called spiritual discernment, ungodly manifestations of Satan. They also called it psychic ability saying, "To know other people's thoughts is a spiritist manifestation of familiar spirits."
Didn't Jesus recognize the thoughts of people? Woe unto you, scribes and pharisees hypocrites, this is your condemnation that light is come into the world and you loved darkness rather than light because your deeds are evil.
John 3:19 - "And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved."
WILLIAM BRANHAM A TRUE PROPHET
There are many who believed William Branham was a prophet of God and certainly he was. The Pentecostals sponsored his meetings, overseas missions and open their churches to him for thirty years of healing, signs and wonders. When he started to establish Christian standards against money begging ,adulterous lives of preachers, immoral dressing of women, worldly music and such like they were offended and they discredited him.
They called William Branham a worker of iniquity because he had power with God to heal the sick, raise the dead, cast out demons and they were like the sons of Sceva without power. They compared him with Simon the sorcerer all because they are workers of iniquity filled with envy and pride. They also charged God's prophet of claiming to be an imitation of God when the nine divers gifts were in operation by and through him. Because of jealousy they wanted the honor and fame that was attached to him.
Through Brother Branham, Bible days were in operation again. Supernatural acts were manifested which were never done since the days of Jesus until the 20th century as in calming of the Colorado storm in November 1963 as when Jesus calmed the storm in Mark 4:37-39 when he said "...Peace be still..." and the creation of squirrels by the spoken word in 1959 as recorded in Mark 11:23 - "For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass he shall have whatsoever he saith."
BROTHER BRANHAM AND THE NEGRO PEOPLE
A recent accusation that is now being circulated, which we have overheard, that Brother William Branham was against the Negro people. This was to discourage our African brethren from believing the message of William Branham. This is not too strange for it happened before in the middle of the 1960's when a "Bajan Balaamite in Egypt", from Central Trinidad visited the USA to test Brother Branham whether he was a prophet. He came back to Trinidad with an evil report saying that Brother Branham don't want to see any 'Negro'. This accusation had no effect on our Negro brethren. [it seems He hated the 'white man'.] Brother Branham's greatest ministry was among the Africans. (Ref. A Man Sent from God & A Prophet Visits South Africa) He further said that Brother Branham is a false prophet and he [Balaam] is a true prophet. Brother Branham's ministry was vindicated world wide.
Where was his [Baalam] ministry vindicated? Show us. He had visions and dreams and could foretell events by looking through a peep hole plugged behind a framed picture on the wall. We have personal witnesses to such hypocrisies. A true witness reported this "Balaam" of having homosexual affairs with young boys under the guise of having visitations of the Holy Ghost at nights in his private chamber. No wonder why he had no wife until his decease. An associate minister who was close to the "Bajan Balaamite" was branded as following a 'white man' doctrine, led a group of believers out of there because of such corruption.
"JEZEBEL AND BALAAM"
Now a brazen faced woman from the Balaamite congregation whose founder believed that he was the prophet to follow Brother Branham's ministry is now propagating that 'Balaam' prophesied that he will not see Brother Branham when he go there on his mission to test the prophet. When the message was presented to 'Balaam' in the early sixties, while Brother Branham was still alive he accepted it and played in his church, the message entitled "The Serpent Seed" preached by Brother Branham. The Books on "Exposition of the Seven Church Ages" was distributed among his congregation. When he conceived the idea that he was a prophet, he rejected the end-time message. Though he preached holiness, he tolerated sin in the church for the gain of the rich members whom he favoured, rebuking the needy who could not give more that $5.00 as an beneficence to send the preferred to the USA on study mission. Because of the poison emitted into the life of the church they became a two fold more child of hell than Balaam himself. This woman is anointed by a lying, Jezebel spirit coming against Elijah to elevate a Balaamite prophet.
The prophecy of not meeting Brother Branham when he go to the USA is a lie formulated in the name of prophecy. Members never heard of such from 1964 and until he died. Such a prophecy was never made. Restored Bible Truths Association can validate that 'Balaam' did make failed and faked prophecies among which was, that a famine is coming upon the land in the early 1960's and members were advised to plant rice and stock food stuffs for this emergency. This prophecy was a failure. There were many more prophetic failures. One of which is, that, members, who believed the end-time message, resisted him and separated from 'Balaam's' church will be involved in an accident on the Princess Margaret Highway in Trinidad. Failed Prophecy! No prophecy ever failed in Brother Branham's ministry. Deut. 18:22 - "When a prophet speaketh in the name of the Lord, of 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."
AUTHENTICITY OF THE PROPHET
To them who promote lies against Brother Branham and his ministry, we of Restored Bible Truths Association refer you to "A Man Sent From God" written by Gordon Lindsay, a renown Pentecostal preacher wrote in 1950 in which he said, "The story of the life of William Branham is so out of this world and beyond the ordinary that were there not available a host of infallible proofs which document and attest its authenticity, one might well be excused for considering it far-fetched and incredible. But the facts are so generally known, and of such a nature that they can be so easily verified by any sincere investigator, that they must stand as God's witness to His willingness and purpose to reveal Himself again to men as he once did in the days of the prophets and the apostles. The story of this prophet's life - for he is a prophet, though we infrequently use the term - indeed witnesses to the fact that Bible days are here again." (A Man Sent From God, Introduction, par. 1)
GOD VISITED WILLIAM BRANHAM
Who is this man called William Branham? Who is he, when he was born a strange pillar of light hovered over him although it was before daylight? Who is he, when at three years old a voice spoke to him and said, "You will live near a town called New Albany." Who is he, when a voice spoke out of a whirlwind as in Job 38:1 and said, "Don't ever drink, smoke or defile your body in anyway for when you get older there is a work for you to do." Who is he when on a hot day in June 11th 1963, when he was baptizing his 17th candidate a blazing light appeared above him (as in Acts 9:1-7) and a voice spoke saying, "As John the Baptist was sent to fore-run the first coming of Jesus Christ so are you sent to fore-run his second coming."
Who is he, to whom a man clothed in white walked out of the light and said, "Fear not, I am sent from the presence of Almighty God to tell you that your strange life and 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.
Who is he? He is none other than God's prophet and the seventh and last church age messenger. Malachi 4:5-6, the promised Elijah before Christ's second coming, sent to expose deceitful preachers, prophets, superintendents and bishops who pervert the doctrine of water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ, Acts 2:38- "...Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins..." on women preachers,1Tim. 2:12 - "But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man..." . They missapply the oneness of God, John 4:24 - "God is a Spirit..". They condone worldly dressing contrary to 1Tim 2:9 - "...that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety...".
These preachers of Satan beguile their congregations into believing they have eternal life when they don't. Repent for your wickedness.
This is not an hour for playing games. We must be exceedingly honest lest we die. God is going to destroy this sin cursed world. There is only one place that can stand the wrathfulness of God and that is in the arms of Jesus Christ. We beseech you that while God's mercy is still available to you, give your whole life unreservedly to Jesus Christ who as the faithful shepherd will save you and care for you.
