.
This. book. is. a. collection. of. blog. entries. from. the. website,. www.seekyethetruth.com.. . As.
individual.posts,.they.chronologically.outline.a.progression.of.thought.during.the.course.of.an.
entire.year...As.such,.they.are.not.intended.to.be.read.and.understood.as.the.final.word...With.
each.blog.post,.discussions.uncovered.hidden.facts.and.truths.that.were.not.common.knowledge.
at.the.time.the.post.was.created...As.a.progression.of.thought,.it.is.also.to.be.understood.that.
the.views.and.opinions.of.each.posts.authors.may.not.remain.the.same.today...As.new.facts.are.
presented,.understanding.of.each.topic.is.also.subject.to.change....
.
Often,.passages.of.scripture.are.referenced.in.the.blog.posts...The.authors.do.not.claim.to.be.an.
authority. of. scripture. or. a. theologian.. . As. students. in. the. Bible. writing. blog. posts,. it. is. to. be.
understood.that.a.progression.of.Biblical.knowledge.and.understanding.is.also.included.with.the.
articles.posted...The.understanding.of.scripture.at.the.time.of.the.post.may.not.be.the.current.

religious. following. of. William. Marrion. Branham.. . Followers. of. Branhams. doomsday. cult.
experience.much.the.same.journey.as.they.attempt.to.deprogram.and.seek.to.find.themselves.in.
normal.Christian.life...During.this.journey,.many.of.these.posts.will.seem.familiar.to.this.subset.
of.the.Christian.faith..while.they.will.be.very.unfamiliar.to.Christians.who.were.not.raised.in.a.

The$ACHIEVEMENT$of$the$Holy$Spirit$
.
Some.inside.the.cult.of.William.Branham.do.not.celebrate.Christmas...This.was.always.strange.to.
me..we.have.several.days.to.celebrate.other.men.from.days.gone.by,.but.the.one.day.that.so.
many.in.the.world.celebrate.the.birth.of.Jesus.Christ.is.taken.away...
.
There.are.arguments.that.Christmas.day.falls.on.a.different.month,.or.that.it.descended.from.
pagan.worship.of.the.sun.god..but.then.the.entire.cult.openly.worshipped.the.sun.god.as.the.
capstone.of.the.pyramid,.which.was.the.Eye.of.Ra...Its.a.paradox!.
.
For.those.that.did.celebrate.Christmas,.and.have.all.the.fond.memories.of.your.childhood.days.
ripping.through.paper.with.bright\eyed.excitement,.picture.this.setting:.
.
Imagine.a.father.sitting.all.of.his.children.down.in.front.of.the.presents...Imagine.the.stacks.of.
boxes,.wrapped.in.pretty.paper.with.ribbons.and.bows,.and.the.eagerly.waiting.children.ready.
to.rip.open..
.
Imagine.those.same.children.tearing.through.their.packages,.but.when.it.came.time.for.them.to.
grasp.the.gift.that.was.hidden.behind.the.paper,.the.father.immediately.stops.them...
.
In.a.harsh.tone,.the.father.says:.Alright,.youve.seen.the.gifts...But.now.you.have.to.earn.them!..
I.will.give.you.a.set.of.steps.to.follow,.and.once.you.have.completed.your.tasks,.you.may.have.
the.presents..
.
I.know.some.of.you.are.thinking.that.this.father.is.cruel...Many.of.you.are.picturing.those.same.
children,.teary\eyed,.with.disappointed.faces.and.little.hearts.sinking.to.their.stomach...
.
Why?..Because.this.is.NOT.the.way.a.father.loves.his.children...A.gift.is.a.gift..not.something.to.
be.earned...It.is.something.given.with.love,.not.some.achievement.for.hard\earned.favor...
.
A.loving.father.would.give.to.his.children.with.excitement.to.watch.how.happy.they.are.as.they.
receive.their.gifts...It.wouldnt.matter.what.the.child.has.done,.how.good.or.bad.the.child.had.
been.the.day.before,.or.even.how.they.had.behaved.for.the.last.several.years...A.loving.father.
gives.gifts.because.he.loves.the.child..
.
Yet.all.of.the.branches.extending.from.the.Azusa.Street.Revival..including.the.cult.of.William.
Branham..turns.the.greatest.Gift.from.the.greatest.Father.into.an.achievement.that.must.be.
earned.rather.than.a.Gift.from.a.Father.to.His.children:..The.gift.of.the.Holy.Spirit..
.
I.remember.vividly.watching.others.who.studied.this.great.mystery..whether.or.not.they.had.
received.the.gift.of.the.Holy.Spirit...How.that.men.and.women.Id.known.for.years.were.searching.
to.find.this.mystery,.crying.at.altars.like.they.had.lost.their.best.friends..
.

And.Im.not.talking.about.sinners.who.were.waiting.to.receive.Christ.into.their.hearts..these.
were.people.who.had.professed.Christianity,.turned.their.hearts.over.to.the.Lord,.and.had.been.
serving.God.faithfully.as.long.as.I.had.known.them...
.
The. Holy. Spirit. was. a. mournful. thing.. . Since. this. Gift. was. described. as. more. of. an.
achievement,.these.poor.people.were.on.pins.and.needles.trying.to.decide.whether.or.not.they.
had.achieved.the.gift!.
.
William.Branham.taught.a.rigid.set.of.steps.that.must.be.followed.to.achieve.this.great.feat...And.
though.many.are.taught.that.this.came.by.divine.revelation.to.this.man.who.claimed.to.have.
been.a.prophet,.it.was.no.new.revelation...This.was.the.same.thing.taught.by.those.fresh.from.
Azusa. Street.. . It. was. the. thing. that. Charles. Price. taught. at. the. church. William. Branham.
frequented.in.California...It.was.the.same.thing.that.William.Seymour.taught,.and.spread.through.
all.of.the.Pentecostal.churches...
.
Since.1908,.the.Pentecostal.Holiness.Church.taught.justification.by.faith,.sanctification,.and.then.
baptism. of. the. Holy. Spirit.. . This. Pentecostal. root. grew. to. its. many. branches,. and. with. each.
growth,.pushed.the.Holy.Spirit.further.and.further.out.of.reach.as.a.more.difficult.achievement..
.
The.Pentecostal.movement.took.the.very.ending.of.Mark.16,.the.Commission.from.Christ...Their.
focal.point.was.the.signs.and.wonders,.but.when.you.read.the.entire.ending.of.the.chapter,.it.
is.very.clear.that.the.entire.movement.did.not.fully.study.the.chapter..
.
Afterward.he.appeared.to.the.eleven.themselves.as.they.were.reclining.at.table,.and.he.rebuked.
them.for.their.unbelief.and.hardness.of.heart,.because.they.had.not.believed.those.who.saw.him.
after.he.had.risen...And.he.said.to.them,.Go.into.all.the.world.and.proclaim.the.gospel.to.the.
whole.creation..Whoever.believes.and.is.baptized.will.be.saved,.but.whoever.does.not.believe.
will.be.condemned...
.
Notice.the.first.half.of.this.portion.of.scripture..it.is.dealing.with.salvation.BEFORE.describing.
the. gifts.. . Those. that. believe. in. Jesus. Christ. are. saved,. those. that. do. not. believe. will. be.
condemned..
.
The.second.half.of.this.section.describes.the.signs.that.follow,.but.just.as.so.many.other.scriptures.
have.been.snipped.to.focus.on.a.single.verse.or.phrase,.this.one.is.no.different:.
.
And.these.signs.will.accompany.those.who.believe:.in.my.name.they.will.cast.out.demons;.they.
will.speak.in.new.tongues;.they.will.pick.up.serpents.with.their.hands;.and.if.they.drink.any.deadly.
poison,.it.will.not.hurt.them;.they.will.lay.their.hands.on.the.sick,.and.they.will.recover...So.then.
the.Lord.Jesus,.after.he.had.spoken.to.them,.was.taken.up.into.heaven.and.sat.down.at.the.right.
hand.of.God..
.
Mark.16:.14\19..

The.core.of.the.Penticostal.movement.believes.that.speaking.in.tongues.is.evidence.of.the.Holy.
Spirit...But.what.about.the.serpents.or.the.healing?..
.
The.Branham.cult.believes.their.false.prophet.is.vindicated.because.of.the.healing...But.what.
about.the.tongues.or.the.serpents?.
.
There.are.several.snake\handling.churches.in.the.back\woods.of.Kentucky.and.Tennessee,.and.
they.believe.that.just.because.they.are.lucky.enough.to.hold.a.snake.and.not.be.bitten,.they.have.
evidence.of.the.Holy.Spirit...But.what.about.the.tongues.or.the.healing?.
.
The.problem.is.that.they.have.woven.the.signs.into.the.Gift,.and.turned.the.Gift.into.an.
achievement...If.you.are.lucky.enough.to.get.a.sign,.then.you.are.lucky.enough.to.get.the.Gift..
.
But.not.everyone.is.given.the.same.gift.of.the.spirit...And.while.these.are.signs.that.Christianity.
is.alive.and.real,.there.is.absolutely.NO.scripture.that.says.that.these.are.signs.that.you.have.the.
Holy.Spirit..
.
It.is.ironic.that.the.Pentecostal.movement.and.all.of.its.branches.chose.this.passage.to.create.
core. doctrinal. beliefs.. . Most. of. the. branches. of. that. movement. believe. in. either. a. Oneness.
Godhead.or.a.Modalist.Godhead...
.
Yet.verse.19.says.that.Jesus.was.taken.up.to.heaven.and.sat.at.the.RIGHT.HAND.OF.GOD!..If.Jesus.
Christ. of. the. New. Testament. was. Jehovah. of. the. Old. Testament. like. the. Jehovahs. witnesses.
taught.and.influenced,.then.how.can.this.be?..Did.Jesus.sit.at.the.right.hand.of.Jesus?.
.
Youll. notice. that. in. each. of. the. many. times. William. Branham. taught. this. fundamental.
Pentecostal.doctrine,.that.particular.verse.was.omitted...We.cant.have.that.verse!..It.conflicts.
with.the.rest.of.my.teaching!.
.
Its.interesting.to.me.having.studied.the.Azusa.Street.revival.and.the.influence.the.Pentecostals.
on.Christianity...Many.today.still.hang.onto.those.beliefs,.but.in.so.many.ways,.the.Pentecostal.
movement.reminds.me.of.the.Corinthians...
.
In.Corinth,.the.early.church.was.hung.up.on.these.gifts.and.who.could.perform.them...Just.like.
the.Pentecostals,.the.Corinthians.believed.that.the.Holy.Spirit.was.an.achievement..
.
All. throughout. his. letters. to. Corinth,. Paul. was. reprimanding. them. for. allowing. themselves. to.
setup.a.super.apostle,.or.focusing.on.a.gift.when.they.should.have.been.focusing.on.love.for.
their.fellow.man...And.like.these.cults.and.churches.that.branched.out.from.the.Pentecostal.roots,.
they.were.unsure.whether.or.not.they.had.received.the.Holy.Spirit..
.
When. I. left. the. Branham. cult,. my. grandfather. (the. pastor. of. the. Jeffersonville. Branham.
Tabernacle).called.to.invite.me.to.an.excommunication.party...I.had.not.attended.that.church.

www.seekyethetruth.com.

8.

for.quite.some.time,.and.this.party.really.did.not.sound.like.it.would.be.any.fun...When.I.refused,.
my.family.was.threatened,.making.me.realize.that.my.choice.in.not.going.there.was.fully.justified..
.
But.one.of.the.things.he.asked.me.was.comical...He.had.overheard.that.I.was.going.to.a.Baptist.
church,.and.so.he.thought.he.would.handcuff.me.with.scripture...
.
How.do.they.baptize?.he.asked...Of.course,.he.knew.that.most.(if.not.all).Baptists.speak.the.
words.Jesus.commanded,.baptizing.in.the.name.of.the.Father,.Son.and.Holy.Spirit...
.
But.to.the.Oneness.or.Modalist.Pentecostal.branches,.this.prevents.one.of.the.steps.required.in.
meeting.your.achievements.to.receive.the.Gift.of.the.Holy.Spirit...(I.use.the.word.Gift.loosely.
there,.because.if.you.have.to.physically,.mentally,.or.spiritually.do.anything.yourself.other.than.
simply.believe.in.Jesus.Christ.to.receive.the.Holy.Spirit,.then.it.no.longer.can.be.called.a.Gift...It.
is.an.achievement..
.
They.take.a.scripture.from.Acts.out.of.context,.Acts.2:38:.
.
Repent.and.be.baptized.every.one.of.you.in.the.name.of.Jesus.Christ.for.the.forgiveness.of.your.
sins,.and.you.will.receive.the.gift.of.the.Holy.Spirit..
.
The.emphasis.is.placed.on.the.words.spoken..rather.than.the.confession.of.faith...Just.because.
this.verse.says.Jesus.Christ,.the.Pentecostals.teach.that.you.will.never.receive.the.Holy.Spirit.
unless.you.use.this.as.an.incantation...And.the.words.are.different.than.the.words.Jesus.Christ.
said.in.Matthew..
.
So.as.my.grandfather.tried.to.slap.the.spiritual.handcuffs.on.me.with.this.question,.I.asked.him.
about. those. that. had. ALREADY. received. the. Holy. Spirit. later. in. the. same. book,. Acts. 10,. and.
wanted.to.be.baptized.as.a.confession.of.their.faith:.
.
While.Peter.was.still.saying.these.things,.the.Holy.Spirit.fell.on.all.who.heard.the.word...And.the.
believers.from.among.the.circumcised.who.had.come.with.Peter.were.amazed,.because.the.gift.
of.the.Holy.Spirit.was.poured.out.even.on.the.Gentiles...For.they.were.hearing.them.speaking.in.
tongues.and.extolling.God..Then.Peter.declared,..Can.anyone.withhold.water.for.baptizing.these.
people,. who. have. received. the. Holy. Spirit. just. as. we. have?. And. he. commanded. them. to. be.
baptized.in.the.name.of.Jesus.Christ..Then.they.asked.him.to.remain.for.some.days...
.
But.this.is.yet.another.verse.that.you.wont.hear.preached.very.much.in.the.cult.churches...It.
defies.their.fundamental.doctrine..the.Holy.Spirit.fell.on.the.people.by.hearing.the.WORD...Not.
by.works,.not.by.earning.the.gift,.not.by.being.baptized.as.a.pastor.speaks.an.incantation..they.
received.the.Holy.Spirit.by.HEARING.THE.WORD..
.
You.know,.after.bringing.this.up.to.him,.I.was.a.little.dumbfounded...He.is.a.pastor.for.who.knows.
how.many.years,.sitting.in.a.church.on.the.platform.as.some.guy.in.the.back.room.presses.the.

www.seekyethetruth.com.

9.

play.button.on.a.sermon.from.1947.to.1965...Literally.all.this.man.has.to.do.in.order.to.receive.
his.paycheck.is.to.read.his.Bible.and.tell.some.guy.when.to.press.play...And.he.had.no.answer!.
.
Not.picking.on.my.grandfather...It.is.not.his.fault..he.fell.into.the.same.trap.that.all.the.other.
cult.pastors.fell.into...They.trusted.this.man,.William.Branham,.to.have.told.them.the.truth.about.
their.Bibles...Then,.all.they.had.to.do.from.there.on.out.was.to.quote.the.man,.William.Branham...
Not.their.Bibles..thats.too.much.work...Its.much.easier.to.quote.this.guy.who.already.had.all.
the.answers..
.
After.seeing.how.many.times.William.Branham.lied.about.his.past.and.the.supernatural.stories,.
its.no.wonder.they.were.led.astray...If.the.guy.couldnt.be.honest.about.himself,.how.could.he.
possibly.be.honest.about.the.Bible?.
.
If.you.were.once.enslaved.by.the.cult.of.William.Branham.or.any.of.the.other.branches.that.grew.
from.the.Azusa.Street.revival,.I.highly.recommend.that.you.read.Pauls.letters.to.the.Corinthians...
There.are.so.many.things.you.will.find.in.there.that.apply.to.your.situation...In.fact,.if.you.change.
the.names.to.fit.your.situation,.it.would.sound.like.Paul.is.speaking.directly.to.YOU!.
.
This.Gift.from.the.Heavenly.Father.that.Jesus.said.that.He.would.send,.the.Gift.of.the.Holy.Spirit,.
is.just.that:.a.gift...It.is.for.ALL.who.believe.that.Jesus.Christ.is.Lord.and.Savior...
.
Ephesians.2:8.says.For.by.grace.are.you.saved.through.faith;.and.that.not.of.yourselves:.it.is.the.
gift.of.God.
.
We.need.to.recognize.that.it.is.a.Gift.and.not.an.achievement..
.
The.best.way.to.do.this.is.to.read.what.Paul.wrote.to.the.Corinthians.in.1.Corinthians.12...He.
specifically. wrote. about. the. spiritual. gifts. because. they. had. placed. themselves. in. the. same.
situation.we.find.from.the.branches.that.grew.from.the.Azusa.Street.revival..
.
Listen.to.the.beginning.of.1.Corinthians.12:.
.
Now.concerning.spiritual.gifts,.brothers,.I.do.not.want.you.to.be.uninformed...You.know.that.
when.you.were.pagans.you.were.led.astray.to.mute.idols,.however.you.were.led...Therefore.I.
want.you.to.understand.that.no.one.speaking.in.the.Spirit.of.God.ever.says.Jesus.is.accursed!.
and.no.one.can.say.Jesus.is.Lord.except.in.the.Holy.Spirit..
.
Id. like. to. stop. here,. and. compare. this. paragraph. to. the. false. teaching. that. came. from. the.
Pentecostals...The.first.point.Paul.makes.is.that.the.Corinthians.themselves.were.sinners...They.

tell.others.that.they.had.not.achieved.the.Gift.of.the.Holy.Spirit,.Paul.reminded.them.that.it.

The.second.point.Paul.makes.is.that.they.were.led...Jesus.said.that.He.was.sending.a.Helper.
(referring.to.the.Holy.Spirit),.and.there.are.several.scriptures.describing.how.the.Holy.Spirit.will.
lead.us.to.all.Truth..
.
Paul.reminds.them.that.they.DO.NOT.curse.the.name.of.Jesus.Christ...Nobody.who.has.the.Spirit.
of.God.can.do.this,.and.Paul.reminds.them.of.that...
.
But.in.the.same.token,.Paul.says.that.no.one.can.say.that.Jesus.is.Lord,.except.in.the.Holy.Spirit!.
.
So.riddle.me.this:..If.the.Pentecostals.are.correct,.and.speaking.in.tongues.is.the.achievement,.
then.are.the.poor.followers.in.those.Pentecostal.churches.cursing.Jesus.until.they.magically.get.
this. achievement?. . Or. the. Branhamites,. who. claim. that. healing. was. vindication. of. this.
prophet..yet.they.themselves.cannot.heal..are.they.cursing.God?..Those.that.are.stepping.into.
the.waters.of.baptism,.making.their.statement.of.faith.in.Jesus.Christ.by.baptism.in.the.name.of.
the.Father,.Son,.and.Holy.Spirit,.do.you.REALLY.think.that.they.are.denying.Christ.by.proclaiming.
that.He.is.the.Son.of.God?..The.one.that.went.to.the.right.hand.of.the.Father.according.to.Mark.
16?.
.
Quite.frankly,.those.people.would.not.darken.the.doors.of.the.church.unless.they.believed.that.
Jesus.Christ.was.Lord...
.
And.dont.get.me.wrong,.I.am.not.belittling.the.conversion.to.Christ.that.happens.once.in.every.
Christians.lifetime...Jesus.said.that.before.you.can.save.yourself,.you.must.lose.yourself...
.
For.whoever.would.save.his.life.will.lose.it,.but.whoever.loses.his.life.for.my.sake.will.find.it...
Matthew.16:25.
.
After.Paul.reminds.them.that.they.already.have.the.Holy.Spirit..those.that.believe.in.Jesus.Christ.
.Paul.starts.talking.about.the.different.gifts.that.are.given.to.the.church..
.
And.if.you.read.carefully,.you.will.find.that.they.are.not.made.to.create.divisions.in.the.church...
The.gift.of.healing.should.not.have.separated.the.Branham.movement.from.the.Pentecostal.root.
which.held.fast.to.speaking.in.tongues...Both.are.gifts,.yet.not.everyone.will.receive.the.same.
gift:.
.
Paul.says.this:.
.
Now.there.are.varieties.of.gifts,.but.the.same.Spirit;.and.there.are.varieties.of.service,.but.the.
same.Lord;.6.and.there.are.varieties.of.activities,.but.it.is.the.same.God.who.empowers.them.all.
in.everyone...To.each.is.given.the.manifestation.of.the.Spirit.for.the.common.good...For.to.one.is.
given.through.the.Spirit.the.utterance.of.wisdom,.and.to.another.the.utterance.of.knowledge.
according.to.the.same.Spirit,.to.another.faith.by.the.same.Spirit,.to.another.gifts.of.healing.by.
the.one.Spirit,.to.another.the.working.of.miracles,.to.another.prophecy,.to.another.the.ability.to.

that.you.must.deny.your.gift.of.knowledge.in.order.to.accept.the.prophet.by.faith?..
.
Could.it.be.that.your.gift.of.knowledge.is.telling.you.something.about.the.false.prophet.and.his.
many.failed.visions.and.false.teachings?..Why.do.they.try.to.suppress.this.gift?..Paul.says.that.

These. gifts,. Paul. declares,. are. given. for. the. common. good.. . These. gifts,. by. the. Spirit,. are. for.

.
Yet.this.Pentecostal.root.and.its.branches.have.somehow.managed.to.suppress.some.of.these.
gifts.because.the.Spirit.is.speaking.against.false.teaching...The.Holy.Spirit.is.speaking.to.hearts.
and.bringing.them.closer.to.Christ!.

that.God.has.empowered.to.fight.the.enemy!.

the.fact.that.God.has.given.certain.people.incredible.gifts.to.help.strengthen.others.and.prepare.

Purgatory:$The$same$"message"$that$Paul$preached?$
.
In.1960,.William.Branham.gave.a.story.about.a.vision.that.he.claimed.to.have,.one.that.started.
out.as.a.simple.vision.of.a.wonderful.place.filled.with.Gods.Bride,.but.later.would.be.added.with.
enhancements.capture.the.imaginations.of.his.congregations..
.
In.November.1960,.he.summarizes.the.story:.
.
I.had.a.vision.not.long.ago.(You've.heard.of.it.),.and.I.looked.there,.and.I.seen.all.those.people.
there;.they.was.millions.of.them..And.I.said,."You.mean.He.comes.to.me.".They.said,."Yes,.and.
then.we.go.back.with.you.".I.said,."Well,.does.every.minister.have.to.stand.like.that"?."Yes,.sir.".
"Every.minister.stand.on.his.ministry.with.his.congregation?".He.said,."Yes,.sir.".(This.Angel.that.
was.speaking.to.me.said.that.).And.I.said,."Then.Paul.will.have.to.stand.too?"."Paul.has.to.stand.
with.his.generation.".I.said,."Then.I.know.I'm.all.right,.'cause.I've.preached.word.by.word.the.
same.thing.he.did.".And.when.I.did.that,.millions.screamed.out,."That's.where.we.are.resting.".

.
This.story,.like.all.of.Branhams.fabrications,.grew.and.grew.over.time...Details.were.added.to.
embellish.the.story,.almost.as.if.Branham.thought.he.were.sitting.in.front.of.a.boy.scout.tent.
telling.campfire.stories..
.
He.would.add.his.dog.to.the.story,.how.the.dog.came.and.licked.his.hand.just.before.seeing.other.
people,.some.90\year\old.woman.who.this.story.obviously.would.have.appealed.to,.and.more..
.
While.many.enslaved.by.the.cult.of.William.Branham.tell.this.story.with.pride.of.their.wonderful.
leader,. they. do. not. realize. that. they. are. actually. promoting. theology. that. comes. from. the.
Catholic.Church..who.they.claim.to.be.the.antichrist...
.
This.story.describes.Catholic.Purgatory:.A.temporary.resting.place.for.those.under.Grace.before.
meeting.Christ..
.
And.I.looked.coming.down.across.the.hill,.and.there.come.old.Fritz..He.looked.at.me.and.come.
up.and.licked.me.on.the.hand,.and.I.patted.him..Just.then.old.Prince,.my.horse,.come.put.his.

I.want.to.see.the.One.that.I've.loved.and\\and.worked.for.".And.they.said,."You.can't.see.Him.
right.now;.He's.higher.than.this..
60\0716.FROM.THAT.TIME.
.
Sometime.between.1160.and.1180.A.D,.the.idea.of.purgatory.was.introduced.to.the.Catholic.
Church...It.was.an.extra\biblical.idea.that.was.very.similar.to.other.pagan.religion...Buddhism,.for.

instance,.believes.in.a.holding.place.for.the.dead,.and.therefore.offers.prayer.for.those.that.
have.not.yet.reached.their.final.destination..
.
Even.in.Judaism,.we.find.that.the.idea.of.a.holding.place.is.supported...The.Jews.do.not.believe.
that.Christ.suffered.and.died.for.our.sins,.died.to.conquer.death.and.hell,.and.rose.again.so.that.
we.can.rise.with.Him...Therefore,.they.still.believe.that.death.has.its.power.over.the.body..a.
holding.place.until.the.unknown.Messiah.returns..
.
But.Christianity..true.Christianity..accepts.Christs.death,.burial,.and.resurrection...They.accept.
the.message.of.Paul,.proclaiming.that.we.do.not.die..we.are.simply.caught.up.with.Jesus.Christ...
.
Paul.knew.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ,.and.he.knew.what.Jesus.taught.about.the.coming.Kingdom.
of.Heaven...
.
Even.to.the.man.on.the.cross.beside.Jesus,.there.was.no.holding.place...It.is.interesting,.because.
Christ.Himself.had.not.died,.and.there.was.still.work.to.be.done.as.He.conquered.death,.hell,.and.
the.grave...It.is.confirmation.that.God.is.not.limited.to.our.time.and.space..
.
To.the.man.on.the.cross,.Jesus.said.this:.
.
.Truly,.I.say.to.you,.today.you.will.be.with.me.in.Paradise..
.
He.did.NOT.say,.Truly,.today.you.will.go.to.a.holding.place.that.will.one.day.be.called.purgatory,.
and.there.you.will.remain.in.limbo.until.I.decide.to.return.unto.you!.
.
But.cult.followers.accept.this.false.vision.as.though.it.were.some.spiritual.revelation...Rather.
than.comparing.the.vision.to.the.scriptures.to.confirm.its.authenticity,.they.accept.it.by.blind.
faith..
.
Why?..Because.this.man,.William.Branham,.said.these.words:.Ive.preached.the.same.message.
as.Paul,.and.the.millions.screamed.were.resting.on.that!.
.
But.today,.I.want.to.present.to.you.the.message.that.Paul.preached..not.by.my.own.words.like.
William.Branham.did,.but.by.the.words.of.the.Apostle.Paul...If.you.are.resting.on.something,.and.
you.have.never.even.looked.underneath.you,.theres.a.good.chance.you.are.sitting.on.quicksand..
.
At.the.surface,.Branham.seems.to.preach.the.same.message.as.Paul...He.holds.a.Bible.in.his.
hand.as.a.prop.for.his.stage.act,.and.says.the.name.Jesus.many.times.during.his.sermons...He.
takes.a.one\liner.verse.from.that.book,.and.bases.his.context.on.that.one.line.from.the.book...
(Notice.I.said.HIS.context,.because.one.line.is.not.in.context.with.the.chapter.).
.
But.this.vision.itself.is.contrary.to.Pauls.entire.message...Paul.proclaimed.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.
Christ..the.Good.News.that.God.sent.His.Son,.Jesus.Christ.to.earth.to.live.the.perfect.life,.suffer.

and.die.for.our.sins,.conquered.death.and.hell,.and.rose.again.so.that.we.can.rise.with.Him..not.
so.that.we.can.sit.in.a.holding.cell..
.
Paul.said.that.our.eternal.bodies.were.already.waiting.for.us,.simply.by.accepting.Jesus.Christ.as.
our.Lord.and.Savior..by.Grace.through.Faith..
.
For.we.know.that.if.the.tent.that.is.our.earthly.home.is.destroyed,.we.have.a.building.from.God,.
a.house.not.made.with.hands,.eternal.in.the.heavens..
\2.Corinthians.5:1.
.
And.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ.is.the.fulfillment.of.the.prophecies.of.the.Old.Testament...God.
promised.a.Redeemer.that.would.come.to.fulfill.the.part.of.the.Old.Covenant.that.they.could.not.
keep..
.
The.Old.Covenant.was.a.contract...God.gave.a.promise.of.blessings.to.the.Jews.if.they.were.able.
to.meet.his.requirements...If.they.met.them,.there.were.over.three.hundred.blessings.that.would.
be.given.to.Israel..
.
The.other.part.of.that.contract.was.the.disclaimer..like.you.have.in.your.contracts.for.the.loan.
to.your.house.or.your.car...If.you.do.not.uphold.your.end.of.the.bargain,.you.usually.will.lose.your.
property..
.
God.gave.the.disclaimer.that.if.Israel.did.not.uphold.their.end.of.the.bargain,.instead.of.three.
hundred.blessings,.they.would.be.receiving.three.hundred.curses...
.
And.this.was.not.an.eternal.covenant...Its.a.good.thing,.too..if.it.were.everlasting,.we.would.still.
remain.under.all.of.those.three.hundred.curses...Humanity.itself.might.be.non\existent..
.
Pauls.message.was.that.this.New.Covenant.of.Grace.had.cancelled.the.Old.Covenant.of.Law...
The.Old.Covenant.was.obsolete..
.
In.speaking.of.a.new.covenant,.he.makes.the.first.one.obsolete..And.what.is.becoming.obsolete.
and.growing.old.is.ready.to.vanish.away..
Hebrews.8:13..
.
And.when.Paul.spoke.of.the.New.Covenant.of.Grace.throughout.his.letters,.it.was.always.called.
the.Eternal.Covenant...It.had.no.end..
.
Now.may.the.God.of.peace.who.brought.again.from.the.dead.our.Lord.Jesus,.the.great.shepherd.
of.the.sheep,.by.the.blood.of.the.eternal.covenant,.equip.you.with.everything.good.that.you.may.

But.William.Branham.could.not.grasp.the.fact.that.something.with.a.beginning.could.ever.be.
made.eternal...It.was.that.concept.that.confused.him.so.much.that.he.preached.nonsense.about.
hell.not.being.eternal,.or.that.Jesus.Christ.himself.could.not.be.eternal..
.
No.such.a.thing.as.an.Eternal,.burning.hell..You'll.burn.for.millions.of.years..But,.anything.that.
was.Eternal,.had.never.a.beginning.or.a.end;.and.hell.was.created...
62\1230E.IS.THIS.THE.SIGN.OF.THE.END.
.
Yet,.when.Jesus.spoke.of.our.eternal.life,.we.find.that.he.used.the.same.word.eternal.that.Paul.
used.in.his.message.about.accepting.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ.so.that.you.would.not.go.to.hell.
.eternally..
.
You.search.the.Scriptures.because.you.think.that.in.them.you.have.eternal.life;.and.it.is.they.that.
bear.witness.about.me,.
John.5:39.
.
That.word.that.Jesus.Christ.used.for.eternal,.is.the.Greek.word:.aionion...It.is.the.same.word.
that.Christ.used.when.He.Himself.called.hell.eternal..
.
And.these.will.go.away.into.eternal.punishment,.but.the.righteous.into.eternal.life..
Matthew.25:46.
.
Branham.even.went.so.far.as.to.deny.that.the.Son.of.God.was.eternal..which.is.heresy:.
.
For.if.He.was.the.Son.of.God,.He.had.to.have.a.beginning.of.time..He.had.to.be.borned.off.of.to.
be.a.Son.(is.that.right?),.if.He.was.the.Son.of.God..

Denying. the. Eternal. Son. of. God. is. not. only. denying. Pauls. message,. it. is. denying. your. own.
salvation...If.Christ.was.not.eternal..if.he.died.as.just.a.man.as.Branham.taught,.then.can.a.
man.save.the.world.from.sin?..Only.the.Son.of.God.can.take.away.the.sins.of.the.world!.
.
This.is.so.far.in.conflict.with.Pauls.message.that.it.is.almost.as.though.William.Branham.is.trying.
to.pick.a.fight.with.the.Apostle.Paul..
.
To.the.Hebrews,.Paul.says.this:.
.
but.in.these.last.days.he.has.spoken.to.us.by.his.Son,.whom.he.appointed.the.heir.of.all.things,.
through.whom.also.he.created.the.world...

If.the.Son.of.God.created.the.World,.yet.the.Son.of.God.had.a.beginning.with.Mary,.we.have.a.

Pauls.message.repeats.this.to.the.Colossians...
.
He. is. the. image. of. the. invisible. God,. the. firstborn. of. all. creation.. . For. by. him. all. things. were.
created,.in.heaven.and.on.earth,.visible.and.invisible,.whether.thrones.or.dominions.or.rulers.or.
authoritiesall.things.were.created.through.him.and.for.him..Colossians.1...
.
So.here.we.have.Paul.arguing.back.with.Truth.against.William.Branhams.heresy...NO,.brother.
Bill!..He.was.the.FIRSTBORN.OF.ALL.CREATION!..All.things.were.created.THROUGH.HIM.and.FOR.
HIM!.
.
These. are. obviously. the. biggest. conflicts. between. William. Branhams. message. and. Pauls.
message.of.Truth...The.very.foundations.of.the.two.messages.disagree.with.each.other...The.
very.foundations.are.in.conflict..
.
But.then,.if.you.take.your.viewpoint.from.the.overview.of.the.two.ministries,.you.will.find.that.
many.of.the.details.contained.within.are.also.in.conflict...The.most.obvious.detail.in.disagreement.
with.Pauls.message.was.the.Law.itself...
.
To.enforce.his.viewpoint.of.how.his.cult.should.have.the.appearance.of.being.different.from.the.
other.Christians.in.the.world,.Branham.taught.Law...Portions.of.the.Mosaic.Law.were.enforced..
while.other.portions.were.omitted...
.
This.is.the.very.thing.that.Paul.rebuked.the.people.for.in.Galatians.4!..Paul.just.spent.the.first.
several.versed.proclaiming.that.Christ.had.set.us.free,.and.that.the.Old.Covenant.of.Law.had.been.
replaced.with.the.New.Covenant.of.Grace,.and.then.asked.them:..Why.on.earth.would.you.try.to.
enforce.parts.of.the.Law.when.you.arent.keeping.ALL.of.the.Law?.
.
Tell.me,.you.who.desire.to.be.under.the.law,.do.you.not.listen.to.the.law?..For.it.is.written.that.
Abraham.had.two.sons,.one.by.a.slave.woman.and.one.by.a.free.woman...But.the.son.of.the.slave.
was.born.according.to.the.flesh,.while.the.son.of.the.free.woman.was.born.through.promise...
Now.this.may.be.interpreted.allegorically:.these.women.are.two.covenants..One.is.from.Mount.
Sinai,. bearing. children. for. slavery;. she. is. Hagar.. . Now. Hagar. is. Mount. Sinai. in. Arabia;. she.
corresponds.to.the.present.Jerusalem,.for.she.is.in.slavery.with.her.children...But.the.Jerusalem.
above.is.free,.and.she.is.our.mother..
Galatians.4.
.
That.question.is.very.fitting,.and.applicable.to.our.days.when.we.were.once.bound.by.the.chains.
of.the.cult.of.William.Branham...To.those.that.are.still.enslaved,.we.can.ask.the.same.question:..
You.who.listen.to.William.Branhams.laws,.which.mostly.deal.with.your.outward.appearance:.
why?..Why.place.yourself.under.portions.of.the.law.without.keeping.ALL.of.the.Law?.

a.set.of.rules.rather.than.love.for.their.fellow.man...
.
Branham.taught.that.the.magnification.was.the.set.of.rules.within.the.Law..not.the.Law.itself.to.
show.how.it.failed...Rather.than.Pauls.message.where.he.states.now.we.are.released.from.the.
law,..Branham.taught.that.now.we.are.under.a.bigger.law..

We.went.back.in.Deuteronomy.and.showed.that.a.illegitimate.child,.bastard.child,.could.not.even.
enter.the.congregation.of.the.Lord.for.fourteen.generations..That.was.under.the.law,.and.Christ.

Its.ironic,.because.William.Branham.himself.was.less.than.fourteen.generations.from.a.bastard.

.
It.is.beyond.me.why.so.many.just.blindly.accepted.Branhams.fabricated.story.about.his.vision.of.
purgatory.. . Surely. there. were. people. there. who. had. studied. their. Bibles,. and. knew. the. false.
Catholic.teaching.this.vision.was.based.upon..
.
But.when.he.falsely.claimed.that.he.was.preaching.the.same.message.Paul.preached,.why.did.
no.body.stand.up?..Why.did.the.ministers.who.studied.their.Bibles.not.stand.up.and.cry.foul!?..
.
The.only.answer.I.can.come.up.with.is.also.found.in.Pauls.message...It.is.the.only.part.of.Pauls.
message.that.I.can.find.that.truly.lines.up.with.William.Branhams.message..

the.lawless.one.is.by.the.activity.of.Satan.with.all.power.and.false.signs.and.wonders,.and.with.
all.wicked.deception.for.those.who.are.perishing,.because.they.refused.to.love.the.truth.and.so.

Weve. shown. how. Branham. lied. about. himself.. . Weve. shown. how. Branham. lied. about. his.
visions,.such.as.this.vision.about.Catholic.purgatory...Or.the.vision.of.the.bridge,.where.Branham.
claimed.to.have.prophesied.about.men.that.would.fall.from.a.bridge.that.was.built.long.before.
he.was.even.born..

But.people.continue.to.believe.it...They.would.rather.believe.a.lie,.coming.from.the.mouth.of.this.

this.description.of.Catholic.purgatory.was.real,.many.will.blindly.follow.this.man.into.the.ditch..
.
Is.it.because.God.has.sent.them.a.strong.delusion?..Is.that.why.they.are.so.insistent.to.believe.
what.is.false?..
.
Ill.leave.you.with.this.question:..After.the.recent.publication.by.Voice.of.God.Recordings,.wherein.
the.Bible.was.thrown.under.the.bus,.many.admit.that.they.believe.what.is.not.true...
.
The. entire. summary. of. that. publication. was. that. its. ok. that. my. daddy. lied. to. you. people,.
because.the.bible.lied.too...
.
I.feel.cringes.from.blasphemy.from.even.saying.that.sentence.
.
If.you.have.accepted.to.believe.that.which.is.false,.have.you.accepted.unrighteousness?..Paul.
said.that.God.would.send.the.strong.delusion.in.order.that.all.may.be.condemned.who.did.not.
believe.the.truth,.but.had.pleasure.in.unrighteousness..
.
Does.this.mean.that.the.headquarters.published.an.article.of.unrighteousness?..And.promoted.
followers.of.unrighteousness?..
.
Wouldnt.you.rather.believe.in.the.truth?..Its.so.much.easier.to.believe.something.if.its.true!..If.
you.try.to.believe.something.that.is.false,.you.find.yourselves.being.one.of.the.three.types.of.
believers.that.Branham.taught:..The.believers,.the.unbelievers,.and.the.make.believers..
.
If.you.are.claiming.to.believe.something.that.you.also.admit.is.not.true,.does.that.make.you.a.
make.believer?..It.is.an.internal.conflict.in.your.belief.system,.trying.to.make.yourself.believe.
something.that.you.have.already.admitted.is.not.true..

Many.people.that.are.still.enslaved,.as.well.as.many.who.are.now.set.free.are.aware.of.William.
Branhams.story.of.the.man.in.Windsor,.Canada...Branham.gave.a.story.to.instill.fear.in.the.hearts.
of.any.who.would.question.his.powers,.saying.that.a.man.in.Windsor.tested.him.and.was.struck.
paralyzed...While.he.ran.screaming...While.he.died.six.weeks.later...Or.six.months.later...Or.was.
still.suffering.from.cancer.to.this.day...The.ever\changing.choose.your.own.adventure.story...
.
But.there.was.another.story.Branham.used.to.instill.fear.in.the.hearts.of.men,.about.a.military.
man. who. was. trained. by. the. army. in. hypnotism.. . This. man,. according. to. William. Branham,.
followed. him. around. his. ministry,. from. town. to. town,. trying. to. make. the. great. and. mighty.
Reverend.Branham.bark.like.a.dog!.
.
It.is.interesting,.because.though.this.man.followed.Branham.from.town.to.town,.his.first.attempt.
at.bringing.out.the.inner.ravenous.dog.had.rendered.him.paralyzed!..So.for.each.of.the.upcoming.
events.for.the.show,.there.must.have.been.others.helping.the.paralyzed.man.work.his.magic.on.
the.minister.on.the.platform..
.
The. first. time. Branham. mentions. this. strange. side\show. was. 1951. in. a. sermon. entitled. The.
Angel.of.the.Lord...
.
Someone.said,."Brother.Branham,.aren't.you.afraid.to.make.such.statements.as.that?".No,.sir..
I've.stood.before.tens.of.thousands,.critics.setting.everywhere..I've.never.seen.a.time.but.what.
God.always.brought.the.deliverance..I've.seen.the.critics.come..A.hypnotizer.once.was.going.to.
come.to.hypnotize...?....Yeah,.what.the....And.the.man's.paralyzed.yet.tonight..That's.right..Said,.
"You.child.of.the.devil,.why.do.you.try.to.deceive.God?".
51\0502.THE.ANGEL.OF.THE.LORD.
.
His. use. of. the. word. critics. is. key.. . Over. time,. as. you. watch. the. story. change,. the. travelling.
hypnotist.has.less.focus,.and.the.critics.has.greater.focus...Like.this.time.he.retells.the.story.in.
1956.at.the.Cadle.Tabernacle.in.his.joint.campaign.with.the.late.Reverend.Jim.Jones...(Jones,.who.
killed.his.entire.congregation.in.South.America)...
.
If.there's.a.critic.here,.now.hear.me;.this.is.law..If.there's.a.critic.here,.I.wouldn't.stay.any.longer..
'Cause. I'm. not. responsible. for. what. happens. to. critics.. There's. many. of. them. in. the. insane.
institution,.and.some.of.them.paralyzed,.and.everything.else..So.I'm.not.responsible.for.critics..
You. just. understood. what. that. man. come. and. was. going. to. hypnotize. me,. setting. out. in. a.
meeting..They.hired.him..He.come.there.to.hypnotize.me,.a.bunch.of.guys,.and.he.was.setting.
there..I.kept.feeling.a.funny.spirit,.looked.out.and.seen.where.he.was.at..And.the.Holy.Spirit.said,.
"You.child.of.the.devil,.because.you've.done.that,.they'll.pack.you.out.of.here.".And.he's.been.

Its.a.shame,.really...If.those.poor.people.in.Jones.congregation.ONLY.KNEW.that.this.paralyzed.
man.travelled.from.town.to.town.getting.paralyzed,.and.that.he.was.ALREADY.paralyzed.THREE.
YEARS.prior.to.when.Branham.claimed.he.was.paralyzed,.those.people.may.have.got.up.and.left.
the.meeting.and.never.came.back!..Think.of.it!..If.they.knew,.Branham.could.have.saved.their.
lives.by.showing.his.lies!..It.would.be.a.paradox!.
.
If.you.follow.the.trail.of.this.travelling.side.show,.youll.find.that.for.a.paralyzed.guy,.this.man.
was.well\travelled...In.1953,.he.shows.his.face.in.Madison.Square.Garden:.
.
There.in.Madison.Square.Garden,.where.we.was.setting.there,.they.had.hired.one.of.these.guys.
to.come.hypnotize.me..Them.guys.that.makes....goes.to.these.army.camps.and.makes.them.boys.

that.man.to.come.hypnotize.me.on.the.platform..And.I.was.standing.there.speaking..I.kept.feeling.
a.strange.spirit.somewhere..I.looked.out.and.there.it.was.setting.there..I.thought,."Lord,.what.
can.I.do?".I.just.kept.on.speaking..I.think.it's.in.my.book..Kept.on.speaking,.watching..I.watched.
the.Spirit.see.what.It.would.say.do..I.watched.it.hang.over,.and.I.seen.a.dark.thing.move.around.
over.him...I.turned.around.said,."Why.did.you.come.to.deceive.like.you.have?".I.said,."Because.
you.have.done.that,.God.will.rebuke.you.".And.the.man's.paralyzed.today..They.took.him.from.

In.1956,.the.man.really.was.adventurous...Even.through.the.perilous.dangers.of.undeveloped.

again,.and.then.be.carried.out.on.a.stretcher.after.witnessing.Branhams.great.and.mighty.power!.
.

of.the.Lord.Jesus.and.see.them.fall.prostrate.on.the.ground..That's.right..See.them.go.in,.standing,.
trying. to. hypnotize. me.. And. went. over. there,. he. was. going. to. make. me. bark. like. a. dog,. and.
standing.out.there.trying.to.do.something.like.that..I.felt.that.strange.spirit,.while.the.anointing.
was.on;.I.looked.around..I.said,."You.child.of.the.devil..Why.do.you.do.that?".I.said,."Cursed.be.
you;.you'll.not.move.from.your.seat.in.the.Name.of.Jesus.Christ.for.the.glory.of.God.".And.he.

56\0121..THE.INTER.VEIL.

That.trip.evidently.took.some.wind.out.of.his.sails,.because.Branham.continued.to.tell.his.story.
for.quite.some.time.before.the.military.hypnotist.had.the.energy.(and.movement).to.travel...But.
a.few.years.later,.the.side.show.was.ready,.and.he.packed.his.bags.to.travel.to.Canada:.

happened.in.Montreal..And.when.he.did.that,.I.felt.that.evil.spirit,.and.turned.around..I.said,.
"Why.has.the.devil.put.that.in.your.heart?".He.looked.at.me.real.funny.and.ducked.his.head.
down..I.said,."You.try.to.hypnotize.a.servant.of.the.Lord?".He.thought.it.was.a.telepathy..And.I.
said,."Because.you've.done.this,.God.will.judge.you.for.that..See.you.unto.it.".And.they.packed.
him.out.of.there.paralyzed.and.he's.paralyzed.yet.today..
59\0418..A.TIME.OF.DECISION.
.
Again,.it.was.a.tough.time.for.the.hypnotist...His.act.in.Montreal.was.so.draining.of.energy.that.
it.was.a.couple.of.years.before.he.was.able.to.do.another.side.show...
.
But.when.William.Branham.decided.to.return.to.his.heros.followers,.those.enslaved.by.the.cult.
leader.John.Alexander.Dowie.in.Zion.Illinois,.the.hypnotist.could.lay.paralyzed.no.longer...It.was.
time.to.go.show.those.other.cult.drones.the.power.of.a.REAL.wizard!..So.he.packed.his.bags,.and.
headed.for.Zion..
.
I.know.a.man.tonight.setting.paralyzed,.been.that.way.for.several.years..When.I.was.up.there.at.
Zion.City,.when.that.man.setting.back.there,.trying.to.hypnotize.me.before.those.people....And.I.
just.kept.trying.to.run.a.prayer.line,.and.he.kept.setting.there..He'd.go.to.the.army.camps,.you.

.
Again,.this.was.very.painful,.having.to.fall.paralyzed...It.shut.the.travelling.side.show.act.down.
for.a.couple.of.years..
.
But.when.Branham.decided.to.return.to.Windsor,.Canada,.this.man.knew.he.would.have.to.rise.

.
William. Branham. uses. the. word. psychology. over. four. hundred. times. on. recorded. sermon.
(magnetic.tape)...Almost.every.instance.of.this.word.is.to.defend.himself.against.the.thought.of.
his.using.hypnotism.to.heal.patients,.and.many.times.he.would.actually.come.right.out.and.say,.
This.healing.is.not.hypnotism..
.
But.while.he.defended.the.single.instances.of.those.who.handed.in.their.prayer.cards.for.him.to.
magically. guess. their. name. and. address,. and. tried. to. claim. that. his. healing. powers. were. not.
psychology,. the. overall. sway. of. public. opinion. from. humble. preacher. to. great. and. powerful.
prophet.was.taking.place.already.in.their.minds..
.
Like. the. type. of. the. travelling. hypnotist,. William. Branham. travelled. from. town. to. town,.
handing.out.tapes.to.let.the.people.take.into.their.homes,.get.alone.with.the.subject.matter,.and.

A$thought$for$consideration$
.
This..just.came.into.us.from.a.person.set.free.from.the.cult,.and.it.is.a.very.power.message.to.
anyone.newly.experiencing.their.freedom.to.serve.Christ.without.the.blinders.of.a.pastor.who.
does.not.read.his.bible...I.wanted.to.share:.
.
A.thought.for.consideration.
.
William.Brahnam.considered.himself.a.prophet,.and.not.just.a.prophet.but.a.major.prophet.
and.repeatedly.reminded.us.that.God.only.has.one.messenger.at.a.time,.who.will.have.Thus.
Saith.the.Lord.to.the.people..He.used.the.mighty.prophets.of.the.Old.Testament.as.a.template.
for.this..So.I.sincerely.ask.you.to.consider,.do.you.believe.him?.If.so,.why?.Because.of.a.story.of.
a.cloud,.or.an.interpretation.of.a.light.in.a.photograph?.Because.he.passed.out.prayer.cards,.and.
some.people.were.healed?.Was.he.indeed,.The.Mighty.Prophet?.
.
A.mighty.prophet.like.Isaiah,.who.700.years.before.Christ.arrived,.prophesied.perfectly.even.the.
tiniest.details.about.the.messiah?.A.mighty.prophet.like.Elijah,.who.shut.up.the.heavens,.who.
called.down.fire.to.consume.his.alter.in.front.of.a.multitude.as.a.sign.from.God.to.vindicate.his.
message?.
.
A.mighty.prophet.like.Moses,.who.in.view.of.the.entire.nation,.disappeared.into.a.cloud.amidst.
thunder,.lightning.and.fire,.to.speak.face.to.face.with.God.almighty.on.a.mountain.made.so.holy.
by.his.presence.that.it.meant.instant.death.for.any.man.or.beast.to.even.touch.the.base.of.it?.
Like.Moses,.who,.on.that.same.mountain,.was.so.certain.of.his.office.that.he.stood.in.the.face.of.
the.hot.wrath.of.the.creator.of.heavens.and.Earth,.(even.as.God.spoke.directly.to.him.and.told.
him.to.step.aside,.that.he.might.annihilate.the.people.of.Israel),.and.reminded.God.that.those.
were.Gods.own.people.and.asked.him.to.reconsider?.Is.your.prophet.like.that?.Does.he.act.as.
an.intercessor.for.Gods.people?.
.
Here. is. the. missing. piece. that. I. pray. that. you. will. not. ignore.. When. Moses. descended. the.
mountain.holding.the.covenant.(etched.by.Gods.own.hand.in.stone),.he.became.enraged.at.the.
idolatry.of.the.people.of.Israel,.and.threw.the.tablets.to.the.base.of.the.mountain,.breaking.them,.
I.believe.symbolizing.the.inevitability.of.a.broken.covenant..When.Moses.had.melted.the.idol,.
he.called.the.Levites.to.his.side,.and.had.each.of.them.strap.a.sword.to.his.side,.and.go.through.
the. gates. of. the. camp,. instructing. them. to. kill.. Kill. who?. Moses. said. Today. you. have. been.
ordained.for.the.service.(priesthood).of.the.Lord,.each.one.AT.THE.COST.OF.HIS.SON.and.of.his.
brother,.so.that.he.might.bestow.a.blessing.upon.you.this.day..They.were.ordained.as.priests,.
and.it.cost.each.of.them.their.son!.And.the.Bible.says.about.three.thousand.died.that.day...
.
Thousands.of.years.later,.in.Jerusalem,.on.the.very.day,(the.feast.of.Pentecost),.set.aside.by.Jews.
to.celebrate.that.day.on.Sanai.when.the.covenant.was.given.to.Moses.and.Israel.became.a.nation,.

Discernment$
.
When. people. who. were. programmed. with. the. cult. teaching. from. William. Marrion. Branham.
speak.of.discernment.with.other.Christians,.there.is.a.great.deal.of.confusion...
.
While.other.Christians,.versed.in.the.scriptural.teaching.of.discernment,.hear.this.word,.they.
are.associating.it.with.one.of.the.spiritual.gifts:.the.ability.to.discern.right.from.wrong...To.discern.
good.from.evil,.to.discern.the.right.pathway.versus.the.wrong.pathway..
.
But.those.who.were.programmed.with.false.teaching.from.the.Message.of.the.Hour.are.not.
typically.speaking.of.spiritual.discernment.as.described.by.the.Apostle.Paul...Instead,.they.are.
speaking.of.a.mystical.discernment.as.described.by.William.Branham...They.two.are.not.the.
same,.and.in.fact,.are.completely.different..
.
The.definition.of.the.word.discernment.is:.
.
1..The.act.or.process.of.exhibiting.keen.insight.and.good.judgment..
.
2..Keenness.of.insight.and.judgment..
.
Both. definitions. are. based. on. judgment,. the. ability. to. determine. which. is. right. and. which. is.
wrong...There.is.no.mysticism.or.signs.and.wonders.to.be.shown.with.discernment..it.as.an.
inward.decision.that.produces.an.action...And.if.you.have.good.discernment,.the.actions.are.
good...If.you.do.not.have.discernment,.your.actions.might.lead.you.into.a.ditch..
.
The.book.of.Judges.in.the.Bible.is.a.good.example.of.discernment..both.good.and.bad...When.
the.children.of.Israel.turned.their.hearts.and.minds.away.from.Yahweh,.Gods.anger.was.against.
them..
.
Up. until. that. point,. God. had. been. their. decision. maker,. and. they. really. had. no. need. for.
discernment...Yahweh.had.spoken.directly.to.the.people,.and.gave.them.the.decision...They.did.
not.even.need.to.think.about.the.choices..
.
But.when.the.children.of.Israel.turned.to.idolatry,.God.basically.said,.OK,.if.they.want.to.leave.
me,.then.Ill.let.them.make.their.own.decisions!.
.
So.in.the.second.chapter.of.Judges,.God.raised.up.men.to.be.their.judge.and.to.lead.them.in.the.
pathways.God.wished.them.to.follow..
.
Still.yet,.Israel.did.not.want.to.listen.to.these.men.used.for.discernment...Though.God.appointed.
men.among.them.to.make.the.decisions,.Israel.as.a.whole.decided.to.abandon.those.judges.the.
ones.who.could.discern.for.them..and.turned.back.to.false.gods..
.

www.seekyethetruth.com.

30.

.
Judges.2.says.this:.
.
Then.the.Lord.raised.up.judges,.who.saved.them.out.of.the.hand.of.those.who.plundered.them...
Yet.they.did.not.listen.to.their.judges,.for.they.whored.after.other.gods.and.bowed.down.to.them..
They.soon.turned.aside.from.the.way.in.which.their.fathers.had.walked,.who.had.obeyed.the.
commandments.of.the.Lord,.and.they.did.not.do.so...Whenever.the.Lord.raised.up.judges.for.
them,.the.Lord.was.with.the.judge,.and.he.saved.them.from.the.hand.of.their.enemies.all.the.
days.of.the.judge..For.the.Lord.was.moved.to.pity.by.their.groaning.because.of.those.who.afflicted.
and.oppressed.them...But.whenever.the.judge.died,.they.turned.back.and.were.more.corrupt.
than.their.fathers,.going.after.other.gods,.serving.them.and.bowing.down.to.them..They.did.not.
drop.any.of.their.practices.or.their.stubborn.ways..
.
It.is.interesting.how.this.strategy,.though.rejected,.must.have.worked...I.dont.believe.that.the.
men.themselves.had.the.gift.of.discernment,.though.that.is.entirely.my.opinion...In.the.Old.
Testament.days,.before.God.sent.the.Holy.Spirit.to.lead.us.and.to.guide.us,.God.spoke.directly.to.
the.people.using.other.men.as.a.mouthpiece...I.believe.that.the.judges.that.God.raised.were.
guided.directly.by.God,.just.as.the.mouthpieces.or.prophets..spoke.to.the.people.directly.by.
God...
.
It.was.all.part.of.Gods.master.plan.that.would.one.day.produce.the.Savior..
.
But.while.there.were.judges.in.the.land,.men.that.God.raised.up.to.discern.right.from.wrong,.
there.were.also.sorcerers...These.men.were.the.polar.opposite.of.the.judges..
.
Sorcerers.were.the.men.who.predicted.the.future.without.God.speaking...They.communicated.
with.elemental.spirits.instead.of.the.One.True.God,.and.were.able.to.see.beyond.what.the.human.
eye.was.able.to.see...Some.were.necromancers,.communicating.with.the.dead,.while.others.were.
able.to.tell.of.upcoming.events..what.the.Bible.calls.fortune.telling..
.
And.there.was.a.clear.distinction.between.fortune.telling.and.the.Word.from.the.Lord...Yahweh.
IS.the.beginning.AND.the.end,.and.knows.the.outcome.already.before.any.event.happens...He.is.
the.Eternal.God,.not.limited.to.our.time.and.space,.and.spoke.through.the.prophets.for.what.we.
could.consider.foretelling.the.future...
.
What. is. interesting. is. that. while. the. programmed. cult. follower. thinks. of. a. prophet. as. a.
foreteller.of.the.future,.this.was.only.one.small.portion.of.what.came.from.his.mouth.from.the.
Lord...God.did.not.continually.speak.of.upcoming.events.through.his.prophets.so.that.he.could.
attract.crowds...Most.of.the.prophecy.given.in.scripture.was.Gods.voice.speaking.of.the.present...
And.in.most.cases,.the.Voice.said:.you.have.turned.to.idolatry...If.you.do.not.repent.and.turn.
back.to.Me,.the.One.True.God,.then.you.will.perish...
.
Because.of.this,.most.of.the.future.predictions.spoken.by.the.prophets.were.describing.exactly.
how.this.perish.would.take.place..
www.seekyethetruth.com.

31.

.
And.I.use.the.word.predictions.very.loosely.here...This.was.not.predictions.in.the.true.sense.
of.the.word...A.prediction.would.imply.that.there.is.a.percentage.of.chance.that.the.event.might.
happen...
.
When.William.Branham.said.that.I.predict.the.world.will.end.in.1977,.he.did.not.false.prophesy...
But.when.he.added.the.words.by.Divine.inspiration.to.that.statement,.then.his.prediction.
turned.into.sorcery,.and.sorcery.into.false.prophecy...because.the.world.did.NOT.end.in.1977..
.
This.was.no.prediction.when.God.spoke...God.already.knew.the.outcome...It.was.not.fortune.
telling,.because.the.One.who.planned.out.the.entire.timeline.of.the.world.was.simply.telling.us.
what.He.had.planned..
.
When.Jesus.Christ.came.to.earth,.he.was.Gods.Own.Son...In.fact,.in.the.Triune.nature.of.the.
Godhead,.He.WAS.God...He.said,.I.and.the.Father.are.One,.and.I.will.send.you.the.Helper..
.
Jesus.Christ,.as.God,.also.knew.the.plan.of.salvation.along.with.all.of.the.events.along.the.way...
.
In.John.5:19,.Jesus.spoke.the.words.the.Son.can.do.nothing.of.his.own.accord,.but.only.what.he.
sees.the.Father.doing..For.whatever.the.Father.does,.that.the.Son.does.likewise..
.
This.verse.was.twisted.out.of.context.by.William.Branham.in.order.to.program.the.followers.that.
Jesus.Christ.was.just.a.prophet...Branham.claimed.that.this.particular.scripture.meant.that.Jesus.
could.not.heal.anybody.until.he.first.saw.a.vision...Or.that.Christ.had.to.see.a.vision.before.he.
could.know.any.of.the.future.events..
.
In.1964,.Branham.says.this:.
.
Now.watch,.He.said,.in.Saint.John.5,."Verily,.verily,.I.say.unto.you,.the.Son,".that.was.Him,.body,.
"can. do. nothing. within. Myself,". only. as. He. seen. the. Father. do.. "What. the. Fatherdoeth,. He.
showeth.the.Son..See,.I.can.do.nothing.within.Myself,.but.as.I.see.the.Father.do.it.".Then,.Jesus.
never.performed.one.miracle.until.first.God.showed.Him.by.a.vision;.not.told.Him.in.His.ear,.but.
showed.Him.."What.I.see,".not.hear,."see.the.Father.doing.".That's.what.made.Him.a.Prophet.
like.unto.Moses,.as.Moses.said..\64\0207.THE.PATRIARCH.ABRAHAM.
.
Do.you.see.why.we.keep.pressing.forward?..So.many.thousands.of.people.that.are.programmed.
to.believe.in.a.different.Jesus?.
.
I.have.had.many.people.ask.me.why.we.continue...Many.people.are.now.seeing.that.William.
Branham. was. a. serial. liar. and. a. false. prophet,. but. it. doesnt. matter. to. them!. . They. continue.
following.his.teaching.because.they.see.no.problem.with.what.he.said.from.behind.the.pulpit...
They.just.choose.to.ignore.the.many.visions.that.did.not.come.to.pass.as.he.said,.the.many.stories.
he. gave. about. himself. that. are. now. proven. fictional,. and. the. many. Bible. verses. he. either.
combined.or.invented.to.re\write.scripture..
www.seekyethetruth.com.

32.

.
But.the.programmed.people.do.not.realize.that.Branham.has.programmed.a.different.Jesus.into.
their.minds!.
.
Like. Yahweh. laying. out. His. plan. for. the. children. of. Israel. to. produce. the. Messiah,. William.
Branham.laid.out.his.plan.for.raising.himself.into.a.position.of.authority.that.was.equal.to.Jesus.
Christ..
.
Letters.have.surfaced.now.between.William.Branham.and.Lee.Vayle,.telling.Vayle.how.to.change.
his.writings.in.this.master.scheme...Branham.had.to.lesson.Christ.to.a.prophet.likened.to.what.
he.promoted.himself.to.be...Branham.had.to.convince.the.people.that.HE.was.the.reincarnation.
of.Elijah.the.prophet..
.
Then,.every.single.thing.that.William.Branham.said.about.Elijah..every.single.praise.to.the.man.
of.the.Old.Testament,.every.single.similarity.between.his.ministry.and.the.fictional.Elijah.that.
Branham.described.of.the.Old.Testament,.every.attribute.given.to.the.Elijah.in.scripture.became.
a.description.of.HIMSELF!.
.
If.I.convinced.you.that.I.was.the.reincarnation.of.Abraham.Lincoln,.and.then.proceeded.to.tell.
you.how.great.a.man.Lincoln.was,.I.would.be.causing.you.to.praise.myself!..If.I.told.you.how.
Lincoln.never.told.a.lie,.and.how.Lincoln.loved.to.play.guitars,.youd.notice.that.I.also.played.
guitars.and.therefore.I.must.not.lie.either!..
.
Branham.claimed.that.Elijah.of.the.Old.Testament.hated.women..a.complete.fabrication.and.
addition. to. the. Word. of. God. . and. that. pointed. directly. back. to. himself,. because. Branham.
admittedly.hated.women!..He.claimed.that.Jezebel.was.slain.for.her.makeup..because.Branham.
condemned.makeup..yet.the.Bible.says.that.she.was.slain.for.her.idolatry...Her.makeup.was.like.
a.tiny.speck.of.sand.compared.to.an.entire.universe.when.you.consider.a.little.point.on.her.eyes.
compared.to.bringing.the.worship.of.Baal.into.the.children.of.Israels.hearts...They.had.temple.
prostitution..even.homosexual..and.human.sacrifice...Do.you.REALLY.think.that.a.little.paint.on.
your.eyes.(as.was.custom.back.then).is.worse.than.sacrificing.another.human.being.to.a.false.
god?.
.
Once.establishing.himself.as.a.prophet.equal.to.Elijah,.and.then.establishing.that.Elijah.was.equal.
to.Moses,.and.then.convincing.his.followers.that.Jesus.was.LESSONED.to.be.equal.with.Moses,.
the.master.plan.was.in.place..
.
At.that.point.in.time,.Branham.could.take.the.scriptures,.how.the.Pharisees.accused.Jesus..the.
Son.of.God.who.knew.EVERYTHING..of.being.a.fortune.teller..
.
This.way,.it.completely.covered.up.Branhams.twisting.of.the.word.discernment.(the.ability.to.
discern. right. from. wrong). into. what. the. cult. followers. are. programmed. to. believe:. . guessing.
names.and.addresses.that.were.written.on.the.backs.of.prayer.cards,.handed.into.the.Branham.

.
The.Bible.says.to.test.all.things...That.is.true.discernment..
.
1.John.4:.
.
Beloved,.do.not.believe.every.spirit,.but.test.the.spirits.to.see.whether.they.are.from.God,.for.
many.false.prophets.have.gone.out.into.the.world..
.

.
But. solid. food. is. for. the. mature,. for. those. who. have. their. powers. of. discernment. trained. by.
constant.practice.to.distinguish.good.from.evil..
.
Colossians.2:.
.
See. to. it. that. no. one. takes. you. captive. by. philosophy. and. empty. deceit,. according. to. human.
tradition,.according.to.the.elemental.spirits.of.the.world,.and.not.according.to.Christ..
.
1.Thessalonians.5:.
.
But.test.everything;.hold.fast.what.is.good..
.
When. you. read. these. things,. and. you. notice. how. William. Branham. raised. the. importance. of.
prophets.in.the.Bible.far.beyond.what.the.Bible.teaches..and.then.lessons.Jesus.Christ.to.the.
point.of.blasphemy..it.is.very.easy.to.see.WHY.he.gave.the.fictional.stories.like.the.Man.from.
Windsor,.and.the.Travelling.hypnotist..
.
Branham.did.NOT.want.the.people.to.test...He.knew.what.they.would.have.found!.
.
Let.the.prayer.cards.get.out.of.order,.and.see.what.happens...Weve.already.shown.you.some.of.
the.instances.in.the.recorded.sermons.where.the.great.and.mighty.Oz.mixed.up.the.names.and.
their.afflictions...He.mistakenly.put.the.affliction.of.the.next.person.in.line.with.the.name.of.the.
person.standing.before.him..
.
Why?..Because.God.was.not.speaking.to.him.as.they.stood.before.him..
.
He.had.to.take.a.spiritual.gift,.confuse.the.people.as.to.its.meaning,.and.turn.this.guessing.game.

knew.that.the.unknown.languages.coming.from.the.mouth.from.people.they.absolutely.KNEW.

Then,.he.would.often.quote.that.scripture.describing.how.they.people.accused.Jesus.of.fortune.
telling...At.that.point,.HE.WAS.LIFTING.HIMSELF.TO.THE.SAME.LEVEL.AS.JESUS.CHRIST!.
.
Regardless.of.the.different.Jesus.that.Branham.programmed.the.people.to.believe,.Jesus.Christ.
is.the.Son.of.the.Living.God,.the.One.who.sits.at.the.right.hand.of.the.Father.in.Heaven,.the.One.
that.sent.His.Holy.Spirit.to.lead.us.and.guide.us.and.help.us.to.discern.right.from.wrong..
.
And.that.discernment.gift.is.raising.red.flags.in.people.all.across.the.world.now.that.they.see.just.
how.many.lies.that.this.man.who.claimed.to.be.a.Christian.told.from.behind.the.platform.on.
recorded. tape.. . For. many,. all. it. takes. is. to. see. that. one. single. vision. failed,. and. their. gift. of.
discernment.reminds.them.that.the.Bible.does.not.allow.for.a.single.failed.prophecy..or.that.
prophet.is.a.false.prophet.and.we.should.not.listen.to.him...
.
For.others,.watching.William.Branham.add.words.to.the.Bible.like.EVEN.IN.YOU.causes.their.
discernment.to.sound.the.alarms...
.
But.none.of.these.with.the.gift.of.discernment.see.these.things.and.then.go.around.guessing.
names.and.addresses.written.on.prayer.cards!..Because.that.is.NOT.the.gift.of.discernment!.
.
The.question.for.you.today.is.this:..Do.you.have.the.gift.of.discernment?..And.have.you.been.
programmed. to. believe. that. the. voice. speaking. to. you. is. not. a. gift. at. all?. . Have. you. been.
programmed.to.believe.that.the.voice.telling.you.this.guy.is.a.liar.is.some.evil.spirit.summoning.
you.to.leave.the.cult.that.you.have.became.enslaved.to?.
.
Search.the.scriptures,.and.read.about.what.God.says.through.His.Word.about.discernment..
.
Youll.quickly.find.that.it.has.nothing.to.do.with.guessing.names.and.addresses...
.
Who.knows?..You.may.already.have.a.spiritual.gift?..You.may.already.have.a.gift.given.by.the.
Holy.Spirit..and.didnt.even.know.it!..That.soul\searching.you.are.doing.to.see.if.you.have.been.
given.the.Holy.Spirit.may.be.over!..
.
Spiritual.discernment.is.a.blessing.from.God,.and.I.pray.that.each.one.of.you.receives.it!...

I.recently.received.an.introduction.to.a.website.for.a.cult.church.in.Trinidad.called.the.Bethel.
House.of.God...The.site.thought.enough.of.me.to.give.me.a.full\page.spread.on.the.work.Im.
doing.with.Seek.Ye.The.Truth,.and.decided.to.embellish.the.story.a.bit.so.that.their.congregation.
would.fear.the.evil.forces.of.John...
.
I.got.a.few.good.chuckles.reading.the.article,.how.they.added.a.fictional.addiction.to.drugs.to.my.
testimony.and.seemed.to.think.that.a.person.could.be.saved.by.drugs...Salvation.from.Drugs,.
they.titled.it...And.how.they.thought.I.was.a.prophet.because.I.expose.the.lies.of.a.false.prophet....
Like. so. many. trapped. in. the. cult. of. William. Branham,. they. have. confused. sorcerer. with.
prophet,.and.have.not.came.to.terms.with.the.fact.that.the.failed.visions.of.William.Branham.
make.him.a.FALSE.prophet...And.the.stories.Branham.invent,.such.as.the.Man.from.Windsor,.
(the.man.that.Branham.said.fell.paralyzed,.but.yet.ran.screaming,.fell.dead,.but.yet.was.still.living.
and.suffering.from.cancer).were.an.attempt.to.present.himself.as.a.sorcerer..
.
I.got.interested.to.see.what.this.cult.church.believed,.since.no.two.cult.churches.in.the.entire.
world.believe.the.same.thing...One.page.caught.my.eye..
.
Seek. The. Truth. was. not. their. only. target. for. condemnation. . the. website. seemed. to. enjoy.
condemning. plenty.. . On. this. particular. page,. the. entire. article. condemned. sports!. . ..and. the.
ENTIRE.CULT,.who.is.now.enjoying.SPORTS!..This.is.a.PARADOX,.because.even.their.cult.leader.
LOVED.the..sport..of.hunting!..There.is.even.a.picture.from.South.Africa.of.the.false.prophet.
wearing. a. pair. of. shorts. . which. he. hypocritically. condemned. . during. one. of. these. sporting.
events.behind.his.rifle..
.
I.read.through.the.article,.and.found.many.quotes.condemning.sports..but.not.one.single.quote.
from.the.Bible.on.the.subject!..And.many.were.quotes.I.was.familiar.with..
.
Many.who.are.young.in.the.cult.of.William.Branham.do.not.realize.this,.but.cult.life.now.in.the.
United.States.is.absolutely.NOTHING.like.it.was.during.the.times.not.long.after.William.Branham.
died...When.he.left.the.scene,.there.was.no.new.manna.from.above,.as.they.called.it...The.
people.were.so.unfamiliar.with.reading.their.Bibles,.and.so.programmed.to.following.new.word.
from.the.false.prophet,.that.they.began.to.re\scrape.the.old.sermons.and.come.up.with.new.
rules...
.
Dresses,.for.instance,.are.much.longer.today.than.the.photograph.of.William.Branhams.wife.and.
children...In.fact,.I.watched.a.poor.girl.blasted.from.behind.the.pulpit.at.Jeffersonville,.IN.for.
wearing. one. of. these. scandal. skirts,. as. the. pastor. called. it,. when. the. tiny. little. bit. of. ankle.
showing. was. NOTHING. compared. to. the. knobby. knees. of. the. great. and. powerful. Branhams.
children!.

My.father.was.best.friends.with.Joseph.Branham,.William.Branhams.son,.and.was.alive.to.spend.
time.with.the.boy.while.Branham.was.still.alive...Theyve.parted.ways.and.have.nothing.to.do.
with.each.other.after.the.love.of.money.set.in,.but.were.always.found.together.according.to.the.
stories.my.father.and.grandfather.tell..
.
Both.my.father.and.Branhams.son.were.avid.sports.fans...To.this.day,.both.men.(though.never.
talking.to.each.other).love.to.talk.about.sports...I.can.remember.visiting.the.buildings.rented.out.
by.Joseph.Branham.here.in.Jeffersonville,.and.the.children.rushing.in.eager.to.enjoy.a.good.game.
of.basketball.or.foosball..
.
And.I.know.now.that.Joes.motives.are.different,.trying.to.capture.the.hearts.of.the.young.men.
and.women.who.will.one.day.send.their.donations..but.back.then.I.saw.this.as.a.very.kind.and.
generous.act..
.
But.you.see,.after.William.Branham.died,.men.not.only.added.to.his.teaching,.they.invented.new.
rules.. . As. they. scraped. the. recorded. sermons. to. find. the. fresh. nuggets,. they. would. find.
Branham.condemning.or.even.disliking.this.or.that...Ive.known.people.who.will.not.own.a.cat,.
because.Branham.didnt.like.them...Others.who.force.themselves.to.pretend.to.like.the..sport.
.of.hunting.just.because.their.fearless.leader.did..
.
These.men,.tossed.by.the.waves,.search.the.words.of.the.false.prophet.without.consulting.the.
Word.of.God...Each.new.revelation,.like.this.condemnation.of.sports.on.the.Bethel.website,.
becomes.more.and.more.like.the.Bible.stories.of.the.lawyers.that.worked.with.the.Pharisees..
.
You.see,.in.the.days.of.Jesus,.the.Pharisees.were.the.popes.of.the.Jewish.people...They.were.
considered.to.be.the.holy.ones,.and.the.ultimate.authority.of.handling.the.Law.of.Moses..
just.like.the.pastors.do.with.William.Branham.today...Forget.about.what.the.Bible.says.about.
something. . lets. hear. what. the. prophet. says!. . Forget. about. quoting. the. Bible. when. we.
condemn.sports..lets.show.what.the.prophet.says!.
.
But.the.Pharisees.themselves.were.unwilling.to.take.the.challenge.of.learning.the.entire.law.for.
themselves...Had.they.actually.read.the.Law,.and.understood.the.purpose.of.love.behind.the.Law,.
things.may.have.been.different...There.would.have.been.no.need.for.a.Messiah.if.the.people.
were.walking.in.perfect.love...
.
So.these.Pharisees.worked.closely.with.men.who.examined.and.studied.the.Law.of.Moses...They.
were.called.Lawyers...As.the.men.and.women.who.study.governmental.law.today.are.called.
Lawyers,.the.governing.Law.in.that.day.came.from.Moses,.and.they.were.called.Lawyers.back.
then..
.
Like. these. pastors. who. invent. new. rules. that. not. even. their. own. prophet. promoted,. the.
Lawyers.invented.new.laws.that.were.not.found.in.the.Mosaic.Law...And.they.twisted.laws.that.
were.actually.written.to.bend.them.a.little.bit.as.they.saw.fit...

During.the.time.when.William.Branham.was.alive,.and.the.divine.healing.movement.was.going.
strong,. song. services. were. entirely. different. from. today.. . The. powerhouses. in. divine. healing.
believed.that.the.song.service.should.be.very.soft.and.slow,.using.only.a.piano.and.an.organ...This.
is.common.with.practically.any.religion..even.pagan..for.entering.into.a.healing.ritual...If.you.
distract.the.patient.from.the.work.of.the.elemental.spirit,.no.healing.can.occur...
.
William.Branham.instructed.my.grandfather,.pastor.of.the.Branham.Tabernacle.in.Jeffersonville,.
IN.to.ONLY.allow.the.piano.and.organ.into.congregational.worship...
.
This.clearly.is.extra\biblical...David.had.hundreds.if.not.thousands.of.instruments,.and.we.find.
worship.and.praise..even.dancing..all.through.the.Bible..
.
Cult. pastors. today. realize. this,. and. some. of. them. are. music. lovers.. . This. Bethel. church. is. no.
different..
.
I.watched.a.few.of.their.music.videos..very.good.music,.by.the.way..and.noticed.that.they.did.
not.practice.the.instruction.by.the.false.prophet..
.
So. this. creates. a. problem.. While. condemning. other. churches. for. not. following. Branhams.
teaching,.they.themselves.are.breaking.his.rules.in.other.areas...It.reminds.me.of.the.words.of.
Jesus:.how.can.you.remove.the.speck.from.your.brothers.eye.without.first.removing.the.LOG.
from.your.own.eye!.
.
But.to.the.Lawyer.in.the.Old.Testament,.it.was.no.different,.really...They.scoured.through.the.old.
Law,.taking.things.in.and.out.of.context.like.it.was.some.sort.of.switchboard.to.turn.Laws.on.and.
off...And.to.twist.laws.to.fit.their.situation...
.
None.of.us.really.like.sports!..But.music?..Lets.bend.the.rules.here.just.a.bit!.
.
The. ways. of. the. Pharisees. and. the. Lawyers. resulted. into. asceticism,. which. is. condemned. all.
through.scripture...Asceticism.is.the.belief.that.you.can.make.yourself.more.holy.by.forbidding.
yourself.earthly.things.of.this.world..
.
Paul.condemns.it.all.through.the.scriptures...Paul.asks.this.(paraphrased).all.through.his.letters:.
If.our.earthly.bodies.have.died.to.this.world,.and.we.now.live.in.the.spiritual,.how.can.the.things.
we.do.for.our.earthly.bodies.have.any.effect.on.our.spiritual.bodies?.
.
It.is.very.interesting,.because.Paul.himself.references.sports.in.his.comparisons.for.the.church.all.
through.his.letters..
.
To.Timothy:.
.
An.athlete.is.not.crowned.unless.he.competes.according.to.the.rules..

you.may.obtain.it..
1.Corinthians.9:24.
.
So.what.was.the.Apostle.Paul.doing,.referencing.this.evil.thing.called.sports?..
.
You.see,.these.cult.pastors.do.not.reference.the.Word.of.God.when.they.invent.new.rules.for.
their.congregations...There.is.no.set.of.checks.and.balances..they.arent.balanced.in.the.Word...
If.they.were,.there.would.not.be.a.single.cult.church!.
.
Everything.taught.must.be.brought.back.to.the.Word...If.the.teacher.does.not.filter.his.teaching.
through.the.Word.of.God,.then.he.is.a.false.teacher...
.
It.is.comical.reading.the.Bible.stories.about.these.Lawyers.in.the.days.of.Jesus...Picture.the.scene...
Jesus.openly.condemning.the.Pharisees.for.their.following.the.letter.of.the.law,.and.completely.
forgetting. WHY. the. law. was. written.. . Then,. during. this. rebuke,. he. throws. a. few. jabs. at. the.
Lawyers...They.sit.back.in.their.chairs,.looking.at.each.other,.shocked...What?..Did.he.just.?.
.
Listen.to.the.words.of.Luke.11:..
.
While.Jesus.was.speaking,.a.Pharisee.asked.him.to.dine.with.him,.so.he.went.in.and.reclined.at.
table...The.Pharisee.was.astonished.to.see.that.he.did.not.first.wash.before.dinner...And.the.Lord.
said.to.him,.Now.you.Pharisees.cleanse.the.outside.of.the.cup.and.of.the.dish,.but.inside.you.
are.full.of.greed.and.wickedness...You.fools!.Did.not.he.who.made.the.outside.make.the.inside.
also?..
.
You.see.what.he.was.saying.here?..Its.not.the.rules.that.you.apply.to.your.outside!..Theres.no.
Biblical.Law.against.sporting!..Its.what.is.on.the.INSIDE.that.counts!..

.
In.other.words,.you.openly.condemn.sports,.and.think.you.are.clean.by.this,.but.you.neglected.
the.Word.of.God!..Where.is.the.Love.of.God,.if.you.deny.his.word.to.uplift.the.words.of.a.prophet?.
.
Heres.the.funny.part,.speaking.of.the.Lawyers:.
.
Woe. to. you. Pharisees!. For. you. love. the. best. seat. in. the. synagogues. and. greetings. in. the.
marketplaces.. . Woe. to. you!. For. you. are. like. unmarked. graves,. and. people. walk. over. them.
without. knowing. it.. . One. of. the. lawyers. answered. him,. Teacher,. in. saying. these. things. you.
insult.us.also...And.he.said,.Woe.to.you.lawyers.also!.For.you.load.people.with.burdens.hard.to.
bear,.and.you.yourselves.do.not.touch.the.burdens.with.one.of.your.fingers...Woe.to.you!.
.
Thats.exactly.what.we.see.in.the.cult.of.William.Branham!..The.pastors.have.taken.the.rules.
Branham.gave.FAR.BEYOND.what.Branham.himself.did!..They.are.placing.more.and.more.weights.
on.the.shoulders.of.their.congregations..
.
I.saw.some.old.men.enter.the.building.in.those.videos,.and.the.pastor.who.looked.like.he.had.not.
been.involved.in.sports.in.quite.some.time...These.men.are.OLD,.and.have.no.desire.for.sporting!..
But.what.about.the.children?..Just.because.this.weight.is.easy.for.them.to.carry,.they.really.think.
that.they.can.place.the.extra.burden.on.the.children?.
.
Jesus.does.not.have.good.things.to.say.about.the.Lawyers:.
.
For.you.build.the.tombs.of.the.prophets.whom.your.fathers.killed...So.you.are.witnesses.and.you.
consent.to.the.deeds.of.your.fathers,.for.they.killed.them,.and.you.build.their.tombs...Therefore.
also.the.Wisdom.of.God.said,.I.will.send.them.prophets.and.apostles,.some.of.whom.they.will.
kill.and.persecute,.so.that.the.blood.of.all.the.prophets,.shed.from.the.foundation.of.the.world,.
may.be.charged.against.this.generation,.from.the.blood.of.Abel.to.the.blood.of.Zechariah,.who.
perished.between.the.altar.and.the.sanctuary..Yes,.I.tell.you,.it.will.be.required.of.this.generation...
Woe.to.you.lawyers!.
.
When.these.men.invent.new.rules.after.Branhams.death,.they.are.not.only.following.the.letter.
of.the.law..they.are.adding.to.it...And.not.the.Law.of.the.Bible,.because.there.is.no.scripture.that.
forbids.enjoyment.of.sports...They.are.adding.to.the.letter.of.Branhams.Law..
.
In.this,.they.mistakenly.think.they.are.increasing.their.knowledge.in.holiness..but.they.do.not.
realize.that.they.are.doing.the.exact.opposite...Jesus.says.that.they.have.taken.away.the.key.to.
knowledge...
.
For.you.have.taken.away.the.key.of.knowledge..You.did.not.enter.yourselves,.and.you.hindered.

.
Now,. I. realize. that. by. showing. others. the. error. of. this. condemnation. of. sports,. these. people.
behind.this.website.will.blast.me.for.something.else...In.fact,.when.they.published.it,.you.can.
visibly.see.them.lying.in.wait.to.see.my.response.to.their.long,.fictional.article.condemning.me.
for.my.walk.with.Christ..
.
But.heres.the.thing...While.they.focus.on.my.past.as.their.target.of.condemnation,.I.focus.on.the.
future.of.my.walk.with.Christ..
.
The.Apostle.Paul.did.not.have.a.good.past...He.mentions.participating.in.the.stoning.of.Stephen...
He.persecuted.the.Jews.and.was.not.a.good.example.of.the.perfect.Christian.in.the.eyes.of.men..
.
But.Christ.did.not.come.to.save.the.saved..He.came.to.save.the.lost...Paul.WAS.the.perfect.
example.in.Gods.eyes...He.was.lost.as.lost.could.be,.but.one.day.came.in.contact.with.Jesus.on.
the.road.to.Damascus,.and.his.life.was.changed.forevermore...
.
Im.not.proud.of.my.past,.and.regret.having.the.disease.that.plagued.me.day.and.night...That.
serotonin.that.the.Bethel.mistakenly.accused.me.of.taking.as.a.drug,.is.a.chemical.found.in.
the.healthy.body...When.the.body.stops.producing.it,.bad.things.happen...It.leads.to.loss.of.sleep,.
chronic.depression,.and.ultimately.to.loss.of.life..
.
Condemning.me.for.the.disease.I.had.when.enslaved.by.the.cult.is.like.condemning.a.diabetic.for.
his.bodys.failure.to.produce.insulin...If.he.does.not.receive.insulin.by.some.other.means,.his.body.
will.shut.down.and.die...If.that.insulin.is.not.readily.available,.he.will.go.to.extremes.to.find.it..
.
But.we.were.taught.in.the.cult.that.these.medicines.for.depression.were.of.the.devil...One.
pastor.told.me.that.time.and.again,.hed.watch.someone.take.medicine.for.their.depression,.and.
not.long.after.that,.they.were.no.longer.believing.in.William.Branham..
.
That.is.a.problem..
.
If.the.medicine.that.helps.your.mind.return.to.health.causes.you.to.leave.the.teachings.of.a.false.
prophet,.then.could.it.be.those.teachings.that.caused.the.disease.in.the.first.place?.
.
Ive.been.medicine.free.for.several.months.now,.having.left.the.cult.of.William.Branham.and.
finding.new.joy.in.serving.Christ.without.the.filter.of.a.mans.law..
.
I. hope. that. since. this. Bethel. website. has. now. advertised. my. site. for. me,. that. many. in. its.
congregation.will.also.find.joy.in.serving.Christ...After.watching.the.massive.surge.in.traffic.from.
Trinidad,.its.easy.to.see.many.who.were.never.told.of.the.visions.William.Branham.had.that.
never.came.to.pass.are.now.seeing.this.for.the.first.time..

Branham's$Jesus?$Or$the$Jesus$of$the$Bible?$
.
There.seems.to.be.a.common.thread.of.several.people.with.the.same.disillusion:.They.believe.
that. the. Jesus. Christ. Branham. taught. was. the. same. one. in. the. Bible. \\. and. therefore. the.
"message".must.be.correct..
.
Let.me.remind.you.that.William.Branham's.Jesus.was.NOT.ALWAYS.that.of.the.Bible.\\.sometimes.
was.the.Jesus.of.Charles.Taze.Russell,.other.times.from.Joseph.Smith,.and.other.times.from.(a.
very.loose).Orthodox.Christianity.when.he.spoke.about.the.Triune.Nature.of.the.Godhead..
.
If.you.believe.in.one.of.the.many."different.Jesuses".William.Branham.taught.\\.then.you.need.to.
head.back.to.your.Bibles..If.you.believe.in.the.Jesus.declared.by.the.Apostles,.then.you.need.to.
ask.yourselves.why.you.follow.a.man.who.can't.decide.WHICH.Jesus.he.believes.in..
.
Here.is.an.example.of.a.different.Jesus:.
.
"The.Spirit.left.Him,.in.the.garden.of.Gethsemane..He.had.to.die,.a.man..Remember,.friends,.He.
didn't.have.to.do.that..That.was.God..God.anointed.that.flesh,.which.was.human.flesh..And.He.
didn't....If.He'd.have.went.up.there,.as.God,.He'd.have.never.died.that.kind.of.death;.can't.kill.

A$Thing$Called$Love$
.
There.is.a.song.I.grew.up.with.that.was.written.by.Jerry.Reed.and.later.recorded.by.Johnny.Cash.
to.rise.to.a.#1.hit.in.the.early.seventies...It.had.a.very.powerful.message,.and.even.gospel.quartets.
picked.up.the.song.to.record.the.Christian.message.that.the.songwriter.described...
.
Until.recently,.I.never.knew.this.song.started.in.secular.music...We.were.taught.that.all.music.not.
recorded.by.Christian.bands.was."evil,".but.I'm.quickly.starting.to.learn.that.a.great.deal.of.the.
music. recorded. by. other. bands. has. some. really. good. Gospel. messages. in. them.. . not. to.
mention.the.tunes,.which.I'm.learning.are.the.basis.for.some.of.the.cult.songs.I.grew.up.with...
.
Creedence.Clearwater.Revival,.for.instance,.sings.a.song.called."Midnight.Special,".and.that.tune.
was.ripped.off.by.some.cult.church.member.to.add.words.about.the."message.of.the.hour".and.
call.it.a.new.song..
.
But.this.song.by.Jerry.Reed.has.a.solid.message,.one.that.Jesus.Christ.would.approve.of...It's.
called."A.Thing.Called.Love.":.
.
Six.foot.six.he.stood.on.the.ground,.
.
He.weighed.two.hundred.and.thirty\five.pounds,.
.
But.I.saw.that.giant.of.a.man.brought.down.to.his.knees.by.love..
.
He.was.the.kind.of.a.man.that.would.gamble.on.luck,.
.
Look.you.in.the.eye.and.never.back.up,.
.
But.I.saw.him.crying.like.a.little.whipped.pup.because.of.love..
.
You.can't.see.it.with.your.eyes,.
.
Hold.it.in.your.hand..
.
But.like.the.wind,.it.covers.our.land,.

Take.your.world.and.turn.it.all.around,.
.
Ever.since.time,.nothing's.ever.been.found,.
.
That's.stronger.than.love..
.
It.is.ironic,.because.while.this.story.matches.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ,.the.power.of.the.Holy.
Spirit.and.the.change.it.will.make.in.the.life.of.even.the.must.ruthless.man,.it.is.very.similar.to.a.
story.that.William.Branham.used.in.self\promotion..
.
But.in.William.Branham's.story.about.the.great."giant.of.a.man".being.changed.by.the.Holy.Spirit,.
the.key.element.is.missing:..Love..
.
In.1952,.he.says.this:.

And.first.thing.you.know,.something.real.bold.something.just.rise.up.in.me,.and.I'll.go.right.on,.
and.call.that.demon,.and.cast.it.out..And.I.thought,."That's.strange.".And.then.here.I.begin.to.
think....Many.of.you.has.read.my.little.book,.no.doubt.all.in.here,.and.of.many.instants.there....
.

I.seen.one.night.at.Portland,.where.a.demon....Oh,.my..A.man.weighing.three.hundred.pounds.
about,.run.to.the.platform,.and.he.said,."Well,.you.hypocrite.".Said,."I'll.show.you.how.much.man.

going.to.break.my.neck..And\\and.five.hundred.preachers.just.fell.back.from.him..And.he.drew.
back.his.arm.and.said,."I'll.break.every.bone.in.your.body.".I.weighed.a.hundred.and.twenty\eight.
pounds,.and.him.about.three.hundred,.and.great.deep.chest,.and,.oh,.what.a\\a.powerful.man.
he.was,.well.able.to.carry.out.his.threats..And.in.the....Right.in.the.midst.of.it,.why,.there.was.just.
something.moved.upon.me,.and.I.just.walked.out.to.where.he.was..He.said,."Tonight.I'll.break.
every.bone.in.your.frail\looking.body.".

I.said,."In.the....Because.you.have.challenged.God's.Spirit,.tonight.you'll.fall.over.my.feet,.in.the.
Name.of.the.Lord.".There.was.the.two.prophecies.made..
.
And.he.rushed.forward.to.me,.said,."I'll.show.you.whose.feet.I'll.fall.over,".just.spit.in.my.face.
when.he.come.up,.and.he.drew.back.his.great.big.fist..

..
.
Notice.the.difference.in.the.two.stories?..Forget.about.God.\\.because.this.man.didn't.believe.
William.Branham,.Branham.SMOTE.HIM.TO.THE.GROUND!.
.
In.the.story.that.other.Christians.received..even.from.a.singer.that.recorded.music.that.the.cult.
would.call."worldly,".love.was.there...The.song,."A.Thing.Called.Love".is.about.a.man.who.the.
world.would.think.was.beyond.change..a.powerful.man.who.would.look.you.in.the.eye.and.
never.back.up...But.once.he.had.a.change.of.heart,.this.giant.of.a.man.became.like.a.baby..
.
But.Branham's.story.is.not.about.love...It.is.a.story.of.self\promotion.designed.to.make.the.listener.
think.that.there.was.a.supernatural.display.of.signs.and.wonders.in.those.healing.campaigns,.
which.would.in.turn.attract.large.crowds.of.curious.minds..
.
And.the.man.was.unchanged...The.focal.point.of.the.story.was.not.converting.another.soul.to.
Christ. . the. focal. point. was. how. this. man. that. seemed. like. a. giant. fell. at. Branham's. feet...
Branham.had.the.ultimate.power!.
.
In.each.retelling.of.the.story,.the.man.is.never.saved...In.fact,.Branham.makes.sure.the.audience.
knows.that.there.is.some.big.dude.laying.over.his.feet.that.is.unsaved.with.a.demon..
.
Listen.to.how.the.story.ends:.
.
And.when.he.did.he.went....He.made.a.great.big.scream,.threw.up.his.hands,.his.eyes.went.way.
out.like.that,.and.fell.around.till.the.police.had.to.pull.him.off.of.my.feet.where.he.pinned.me.to.
the.floor..They.said,."Is.that.man.dead?".I.said,."No."."Well,".said,."is.he.healed?".I.said,."No..It's.
just.God.showing.His.power.to.make.that.demon.bow.to.Him.".That.was.all..See?.I.said,."He's.not.
dead.".51\0728.THREE.WITNESSES.
.
Many.times.throughout.his.ministry,.William.Branham.would.tell.and.retell.this.story,.showing.
great.pride.in.his.ability.to.conquer.the.giants.as.though.he.were.David.and.carrying.some.sling...
Like.the.story.in.the.Bible.about.David,.Branham's.story.was.about.war.and.power.over.the.forces.
of.evil..without.the.Grace.and.Mercy.given.under.the.New.Covenant...
.
The.man,.though.falling.at.Branham's.feet.was.unconverted..
.
As.time.progressed,.and.the.story.was.spread.throughout.the.different.cities.in.the.campaigns,.
William.Branham.finally.added.the.aspect.of.love..but.still.nothing.like.the.song.that.I.enjoy...

Branham.retells.the.story,.still.with.the.original.power.over.the.forces.of.evil,.but.then.adds.how.
HE.loved.the.man..not.how.the.man.FOUND.LOVE..
.
Now,.that's.when.we.come.to.these.crisis.that.when.sovereign.grace.steps.in..Then.something.
happened.in\\in.my.life.that.I.wish.it.would\\if.it.ever.comes.again,.that.It'll.never.leave..And.I.
only.wish.that.there.was.some.way.that.I.had.the.power.this.morning.to.project.that.to.this.group.
of.men.and.women.here,.and.it.never.leave.you..Like.when.the.maniac.at\\up.at.Oregon,.when.
he.ran.to.the.platform.to.kill.me,.many.of.you.read.that.book..Something.happened.there..You've.
often.wondered,.I.guess,.how.those.things.happened..It's.something.in.the.stead.of.despising.
that.man.though.he.was.there.to.take.my.life,.a.Divine.law.set.in.for.him..And.he.called.me.a.
hypocrite.and.a.snake.in.the.grass,.and.thousands.of.people.setting.there,.and.spit.in.my.face,.
drew.back.his.fist,.and.said,."I'll.break.every.bone.in.your.body.".People.probably.setting.here.
was. there.. But. instead. of. despising. the. man,. something\\grace. came. in,. in. a. moment. when. I.
needed.it..Grace.sets.in.and.projected.a.Divine.love.into.my.heart.that.I.could.project.to.him,.and.
thought,."There.stands.a.man,.like.a.man\\like.I.am.".Said,."He\\he.likes.to.eat.and.drink.and.his.
family;.but.the.devil.has.him.bound.".So.the.love.of.God.constrained.me,.and.the.man.humbled.
himself.and.fell.across.my.feet..Grace.stepped.in.when.love.was.projected..
.
\56\0218B.WHEN.LOVE.IS.PROJECTED.
.
Again,.Branham.is.the.focal.point...Not.Christ,.not.even.love..though.love.is.added.to.the.story...
In.other.words,."I'm.the.all\powerful,.and.I.can.smite.people.to.the.ground!..but.I.sure.love.
'em.when.I.smite.'em!".
.
It.is.ironic,.because.these.two.examples..the.song.about.how.love.will.change.the.heart.of.even.
the.largest.giant,.and.the.story.about.how.the.all\powerful.wizard.on.the.platform.loves.even.
those.who.he.smites.to.the.ground..is.described.in.Paul's.letter.to.the.Galatians.in.Galatians.5..
.
In.the.first.part,.Paul.first.describes.the.story.given.by.William.Branham:..sorcery...He.compares.
it.with.drunken.orgies.and.idolatry..
.
The. acts. of. the. flesh. are. obvious:. sexual. immorality,. impurity. and. debauchery;. idolatry. and.
witchcraft;.hatred,.discord,.jealousy,.fits.of.rage,.selfish.ambition,.dissensions,.factions.and.envy;.
drunkenness,.orgies,.and.the.like..I.warn.you,.as.I.did.before,.that.those.who.live.like.this.will.not.
inherit.the.kingdom.of.God..
.
But. examine. that. description. of. the. "acts. of. the. flesh",. or. "worldliness". in. Paul's. description...
"Factions,". is. exactly. the. description. of. the. cult. itself. . creating. a. "faction". of. people. that.
separate.themselves.from.other.Christians!..
.
The. more. obvious. sins,. such. as. sexual. immorality,. remain. hidden. in. the. message. of. William.
Branham...But.if.you.examine.each.of.these.words.and.many.of.the."hidden.secrets".that.are.
starting.to.be.brought.forth,.you.will.start.to.identify.with.each.of.these.in.the.cult..starting.
with.the.cult.leader.himself..
www.seekyethetruth.com.

.
And.the."signs.and.wonders".that.are.pointed.to.in.this.cult.is.not.the.fruits.of.the.Spirit.that.Paul.
describe...Having.the.power.to.smite.down.your.opponent..without.saving.them..is.NOT.one.
of.the.fruits.of.the.Spirit.that.Paul.speaks.about:.
.
"But. the. fruit. of. the. Spirit. is. love,. joy,. peace,. forbearance,. kindness,. goodness,. faithfulness,.
gentleness.and.self\control..Against.such.things.there.is.no.law..Those.who.belong.to.Christ.Jesus.
have.crucified.the.flesh.with.its.passions.and.desires..Since.we.live.by.the.Spirit,.let.us.keep.in.
step.with.the.Spirit...Let.us.not.become.conceited,.provoking.and.envying.each.other.".
.
Not.to.become.conceited,.as.Paul.asks.us,.is.the.key...
.
The. definition. of. conceited. is:. "having. a. high. or. exaggerated. opinion. of. oneself. or. one's.
accomplishments.".
.
Examine.any.one.of.the.sermons.William.Branham.preached.in.the.years.leading.up.to.his.death,.
and.you.will.find.a.strange.and.unusual.pattern...It's.almost.a.rhythm.that.you.can.hear.like.a.
beating.drum.in.South.Africa:..Cloud,.Kings.Sword,.Halo...Cloud,.Kings.Sword,.Halo...Cloud,.Kings.
Sword,.Halo..
.
These.stories,.like.the.story.of.the.giant.who.fell.at.Branham's.feet,.do.not.point.to.Jesus.Christ.
.they.point.to.William.Branham...If.they.pointed.to.Christ,.then.the.cult.pastors.would.not.be.
so.upset.today.after.finding.out.how.many.times.Branham.lied.about.himself.and.his.visions...
.
If. Christ. were. the. foundation,. they. could. easily. forget. about. William. Branham,. and. continue.
preaching.about.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ..
.
but.they.are.preaching.the."gospel.of.William.Branham.".
.
I.never.really.thought.about.it.until.putting.my.thoughts.into.my.favorite.song.and.how.different.
it.was.from.Branham's.wizard.story,.but.my.favorite.chapter.in.the.Bible.is.very.similar.to.this.
song..and.polar.opposite.from.Branham's.smiting.of.the.giant..
.
Immediately.after.Paul.tells.the.church.about.the.signs.that.would.follow.their.ministries,.such.
as.speaking.in.tongues,.Paul.reminds.them.that.there.is.ONE.BODY.of.Christians..all.different.
members.of.the.same.body...Not.divisions,.not.promoting.separation.from.other.Christians.as.
these.cult.leaders.declare...Unity..
.
But.after.all.of.this,.Paul.tells.them.what.is.most.important:.Love..
.
"If.I.speak.in.the.tongues.of.men.and.of.angels,.but.have.not.love,.I.am.a.noisy.gong.or.a.clanging.
cymbal...And.if.I.have.prophetic.powers,.and.understand.all.mysteries.and.all.knowledge,.and.if.I.
have.all.faith,.so.as.to.remove.mountains,.but.have.not.love,.I.am.nothing...If.I.give.away.all.I.
have,.and.if.I.deliver.up.my.body.to.be.burned,.but.have.not.love,.I.gain.nothing..Love.is.patient.

discrediting.Christ's.work.on.the.cross.that.placed.our.sins.into.the.sea.of.forgetfulness...
.
It.took.me.some.time.to.realize.that.because.of.the.cult.programming,.they.struggle.to.separate.
my.exposing.the.false.prophecy.and.failed.visions.from.an.attack.on.their.integrity.and.character...
Once.programmed.by.this.and.cults.like.it,.the.mind.is.programmed.to.believe.that.an.attack.on.
your.doctrinal.beliefs.is.an.attack.on.you,.personally..rather.than.exposure.so.that.you.turn.
away.from.these.things.to.focus.on.Jesus.Christ..

worldwide,.and.they.can.see.the.massive.number.of.people.reading.our.material.on.our.social.
websites...Scribd,.for.instance,.has.almost.35,000.documents.read..while.these.cult.preachers.
are.begging.their.congregations.not.to.read.the.exposure.of.Branham's.lies.and.false.teaching...
And.it.is.just.one.of.the.avenues.we.use.to.show.others.the.lies.of.a.man.to.turn.back.to.Christ..

.
But.these.attacks.do.align.with.Branham's.unchristian.story.of.how.he.smote.another.human.
being.to.the.ground..unsaved...That.is.the.kind.of.Christians.that.these.legalistic,.controlling.
cults.breed..Christians.that.want.to.smite.others.down..
.
Wouldn't.you.rather.serve.a.God.of.love.than.a.god.of.hate?..Wouldn't.you.rather.believe.in.the.

about.that.story)?..

completely.fabricated.anyway..and.I.also.did.not.care.that.I.was.promoting.lies.from.behind.
the.pulpit..I'd.change.this.story.a.bit..
.
I.would.change.it.to.match.Paul's.letters.and.the.song,."A.Thing.Called.Love."..I.would.tell.the.
people.how.Branham.told.the.giant.of.Jesus.Christ...How.as.Branham.told.the.entire.Gospel.of.
Jesus.Christ.to.this.man,.and.he.DID.fall.to.the.ground...But.he.fell.on.his.knees,.and.William.
Branham.was.right.there.beside.him..on.his.knees...Branham.was.not.so.prideful.that.he.stood.
over.the.man.like.a.sorcerer,.I.would.tell.my.congregations.that.Branham.was.so.unselfish.that.
he.didn't.mind.dirtying.his.trousers.to.lead.this.poor.giant.to.Christ!...if,.of.course,.I.could.tell.
these.fabricated.stories.from.behind.the.pulpit.knowing.that.God.was.my.judge..
.
I.certainly.would.never.play.any.of.these.tapes.with.the.story.as.it.is...I.would.be.afraid.that.some.
poor.soul.would.be.turned.away.from.Christianity!..Why.would.I.want.to.serve.a.God.that.did.not.
love.people?..Why.follow.a.leader.that.smote.people.to.the.ground?..
.
If.I.were.a.pastor.in.the.cult.churches,.I.would.rather.tell.others.about.Jesus.Christ...How.God.sent.
His. only. Son. to. the. world,. because. He. loved. us. SO. MUCH!. . How. God. knew. that. we. were. all.
sinners,.destined.to.die...How.that.without.Christ,.we.would.all.be.smote.to.the.ground.by.the.
fury.and.wrath.that.we.deserved!.
.
I'd.tell.them.how.Christ.suffered.and.died.on.the.cross.for.us,.and.how.he.conquered.death,.hell,.
and.the.grave,.so.that.we.will.never.taste.its.fury...I.would.tell.them.how.He.rose.again,.so.that.
we.will.now.rise.with.Him.to.meet.Him.in.His.Kingdom!.
.
And.I'd.tell.them.how.that.kingdom.was.filled.with.sinners,.just.like.me...Sinners.who.deserved.
the.death.that.Christ.saved.us.from...Giants.who.had.a.change.of.heart.by.perfect.love,.and.little.

ball,.and.never.landing.into.the.hands.of.someone.who.had.enough.knowledge.about.the.subject.
to. give. an. answer. as. to. WHAT. this. vindication. was.. . This. website. is.
www.searchingforvindication.com.
.
When.the.only.answers.given.about."vindication.of.a.prophet".were.that.Branham.had.a.massive.
healing. campaign. . like. Oral. Roberts. or. Billy. Graham. did,. these. people. quickly. realized. that.
every.cult.pastor.in.every.cult.church.was.sidestepping.the.issue...Why?.
.
Oral.Roberts.and.Billy.Graham.had.huge.healing.campaigns...Did.this.make.them."prophets?"..
Oral.Roberts.even.claimed.to.have.been.a.prophet,.and.you.can.read.about.the.prophecies.that.
he.had.as.self\promotion..prophecies.that.failed...Does.the.fact.that.Roberts.had.a.healing.
campaign.make.him.no.less.a.false.prophet?.
.
SearchingForVindication.was.not.satisfied.with.the.cult.pastors.dodging.the.issue.each.time.the.
question. was. asked,. and. knew. that. their. promoting. the. idea. of. an. "evil. spirit". each. time. a.
member.asks.this.valid.question.was.absolutely.against.scripture...So.they.decided.to.search.for.
this."vindication".themselves...(Hence.the.name,.Searching.For.Vindication.).
.
In.the.first.set.of.articles.produced.by.Searching.For.Vindication,.they.examined.the."Ohio.Bridge.
Prophecy,".one.of.the.many."prophecies".by.William.Branham.that.could.not.be.substantiated..
.
Throughout.the.years,.many.in.the.cult.had.tried.to.find.supporting.evidence.of.these.16.men.
who.fell.to.their.deaths.in.the.prophecy.given.by.William.Branham...Each.time.a.new.person.
would.search,.they.did.find.16.men.falling.to.their.deaths.when.a.section.of.the.bridge.collapsed.
.but.it.was.for.the.Big.Four.Bridge.in.Louisville,.a.bridge.that.was.built.long.before.William.
Branham.was.even.born...
.
Some,.like.myself,.have.spoken.with.the.local.Bridge.Authority...Men.who.were.alive.and.even.
remembered.William.Branham.would.chuckle.a.bit.when.I.asked.them.about.these.sixteen.men...
Respectfully,.they.never.would.say.anything.negative.about.William.Branham,.but.under.duty,.
was.obligated.to.tell.the.truth...The.Clark.Memorial.Bridge..the.one.that.Branham.claimed.to.
have.seen.in.the.vision.prior.to.the.sixteen.men.falling..was.one.of.the.safest.constructions.for.
its.time...In.fact,.because.there.were.so.few.casualties,.the.method.of.building.the.bridge.used.
for.the.Clark.Memorial.Bridge.is.still.used.to.this.date..
.
But.this.was.not.enough.to.persuade.those.who.think.that.William.Branham.was.a."vindicated.
prophet."..So.Searching.For.Vindication.went.through.a.painstaking.effort.to.filter.through.the.

entire. set. of. newspapers. and. logs. from. the. coast. guard,. daily. recording. not. only. deaths,. but.
atmospheric.conditions.and.other.information.relative.to.the.construction.of.the.bridge...
.
You. can. read. through. this. information. yourself. on. their. website,.
www.searchingforvindication.com,.but.here.is.a.summary.of.their.findings.that.is.listed.after.the.
search:.
.
Each.day.the.log.contained.the.wind.direction,.force,.barometric.pressure,.temperature,.and.surf.
conditions..These.all.had.to.be.recorded.at.4.AM,.8.AM,.Noon,.4.PM,.8.PM,.and.Midnight..The.
log.also.records.the.number.and.types.of.ships.that.passed..It.appears.that.the.main.types.tracked.
were.steamers.and.barges.in.tow..The.station.ran.a.regular.lookout.schedule.which.was.recorded.
every.two.hours..Absences.for.vacation.or.sick.leave.were.recorded..The.log.includes.any.drills.
held. as. well. as. a. count. of. vessel. boardings,. inspections,. and. most. importantly,. the. cases. of.
assistance.and.number.of.lives.saved..Finally,.the.second.page.of.the.daily.log.included.a.record.
of.miscellaneous.events.of.the.day,.recorded.in.chronological.order..The.log.was.signed.by.the.
officer.in.charge.at.the.end.of.each.day..
.
.
We've.reviewed.all.of.these.logs.and.found.that.the.Coast.Guard.Station.ran.a.lookout.twenty\
four.hours.per.day,.every.day.of.the.year..The.logs.contain.information.about.all.distress.calls,.
cases.of.assistance,.and.even.mundane.events.at.the.station,.like.painting.the.kitchen,.or.buying.
groceries. to. supplement. rations.. The. log. contained. accounts. of. drownings,. body. recoveries,.
suicide.attempts,.aiding.prohibition.agents.in.executing.searches.on.remote.islands,.etc..There.
were. heart\wrenching. entries. about. young. children. drowning. and. Coast. Guard. personnel.
administering.resuscitation.for.up.to.90.minutes.in.a.failed.attempts.to.save.young.lives..The.log.
covered.capsized.boats,.mechanical.problems,.cars.crashing.into.the.river,.saving.unsuspecting.
canoeists.headed.for.the.peril.of.the.falls,.and.even.records.of.recovering.a.little.boy's.lost.bicycle.
that.ended.up.in.the.river..
.
.
The.Coast.Guard.station.was.located.a.few.hundred.yards.from.the.Municipal.Bridge.and.ran.a.
constant.lookout..There's.no.record.of.any.accident.where.sixteen.men.fell.from.the.bridge.to.
their.deaths.and.drowned..
.
.
There's.also.no.evidence.of.construction.in.1936.as.was.suggested.by.one.reader..

.
By.the.time.they.finished.their.search,.I.think.it.was.obvious.that.they.realized.that.instead.of.
"vindicated,".William.Branham.was.very.much."un\vindicated."..But.they.continued..

Searching.For.Vindication.put.together.an.interactive.timeline.of.events.that.occurred.early.in.
William.Branham's.ministry,.and.found.some.very.shocking.results...
.
Census. records. were. found,. confirming. that. William. Branham. was. born. April. 6,. 1907. .
invalidating.his.many.stories.in.sermons.like."How.An.Angel.Came.To.Me,".where.the."fortune.
teller".told.him.that.he.was."born.under.a.sign".in.the.year.1909...He.could.not.have.been.born.
a. second. time!. . Not. to. even. mention. the. fact. that. they. found. a. third. date. given. on. his. first.
marriage.license...Before.the.story.of.the.mystic.woman.was.given,.Branham.also.claimed.to.have.
been.born.in.1908!.
.
They. also. found. census. records. and. confirmed. birth. dates. showing. how. William. Branham's.
siblings.were.born.in.Indiana..not.the.hills.of.Kentucky...Branham.himself.moved.to.Indiana.
before.age.three.according.to.census.records..but.he.would.often.tell.stories.of.how.he.hunted.
and.trapped.in.the.hills.of.Kentucky.to.support.his.poor.family...There.are.even.songs,.such.as.the.
"Cabins. Location,". that. immortalize. Branham's. stories. of. his. childhood. with. his. siblings. in.
Kentucky..
.
But.these.records.show.that.his.childhood.stories.are.just.another.fabrication.in.the.huge.web.of.
things.that.are.simply.not.true..
.
The. timeline. shows. newspaper. articles. of. Branham's. siblings. marrying,. divorcing,. and. then.
getting.re\married..by.William.Branham.himself...In.public,.Branham.had.a.tremendous.hatred.
for.any.minister.of.the.gospel.that.would.do.anything.that.would.even.slightly.violate.certain.
parts.of.the.Mosaic.Law.that.was.rendered.obsolete.(according.to.Paul).after.the.New.Covenant.
of.Grace...But.then.in.private,.Branham.would.massively.bend.rules.so.that.his.brothers.could.
enjoy.new.wives.as.though.they.were.trading.in.for.a.new.car.every.few.years..
.
And.while.William.Branham.claims.that.God's.wrath.smote.his.wife.and.child,.wrath.because.he.
did.not.believe.in.the.Pentecostal.movement,.the.newspaper.articles.tell.a.slightly.different.story...
Hope.and.Sharon.Rose.died.several.months.AFTER.the.flood.of.1937,.and.Branham's.daughter.
died.of.a.short\term.illness....this.is.very.strange,.when.you.combine.this.with.the.fact.that.
one.of.Branham's.closest.friends,.Dr..Sam.Adair,.performed.the.autopsies!..But.this.was.not.the.
shocker!.
.
The. shocker. was. that. William. Branham. was. already. ministering. at. a. Pentecostal. tabernacle.
BEFORE.the.flood!..A.fact.that.now.uncovered,.completely.eradicates.his.ENTIRE.conversion.story.
before.it.even.started!.
.
This. strange. new. turn. of. events. sent. Searching. For. Vindication. on. a. new. journey,. one. that.
investigates.the.history.behind.the.Branham.Tabernacle,.and.all.the.stories.William.Branham.told.
that.surround.the.Pentecostal.Tabernacle..that.should.have.NOT.been.Pentecostal.according.
to.Branham's.many.conversion.stories..
.
One.such.event.is.one.that.all.cult.followers.immortalize:..The.1933.Baptism..

.
Many.of.you.are.familiar.with.that.story..because.it.is.one.of.MANY."commission".stories.that.
Branham.claimed.to.have.had.to."vindicate".his.ministry....
.
In.1965,.Branham.reminds.his.followers.once.again.of.the.story:.
.
Then,. consider. now,. I. ask. you. at. this. hour,. you. people. here. of. Jeffersonville.. In. 1933,. the.
supernatural.Light.that.fell.down.yonder.on.the.river.,.that.day.when.I.was.baptizing.five.hundred.
in.the.Name.of.Jesus.Christ,.as.about.a.twenty\year\old.boy..What.did.It.say,.Jeffersonville?.What.
was.It.at.the.foot.of.Spring.Street.there,.when.the.Courier.Journal,.I.believe.it.was.the.Louisville.
Herald,.packed.the.article.of.It?.It.went.plumb.across.the.Associated.Press,.plumb.into.Canada..
Doctor.Lee.Vayle.cut.it.out.of.the.paper,.way.up.in.Canada,.in.1933..When.I.was.baptizing.my.
seventeenth.person,.under.this.Witness;.and.you.know.the.rest.of.the.story..And.when.I.was.
standing.there,.baptizing.the.seventeenth.person,.a.Light.come.down.from.Heaven,.shining.down.
above.there,.like.a.Star.falling.from.the.Heaven..A.Voice.said,."As.John.the.Baptist.was.sent.to.
forerun.the.first.coming.of.Christ,.your.Message.shall.forerun.His.second.Coming,.into.all.the.
world.".This.day.this.Scripture.is.fulfilled..
.
This.Day.This.Scripture.Is.Fulfilled.preached.in.Jeffersonville,.Indiana.on.February.19,.1965.
.
But.what.Searching.For.Vindication.found.was.not.a.great.event,.so.great.that.the.Associated.
Press. would. quickly. travel. to. the. little. town. of. Jeffersonville,. Indiana. to. cover. this. incredible.
breaking.news.that.God.had.spoken.from.the.heavens!..
.
There. was. not. five. hundred. being. baptized,. not. even. close.. . In. fact,. there. was. not. even.
seventeen,.the.number.Branham.gives.when.he.fabricates.a.story.about.God.speaking.from.the.
heavens..
.
In.fact,.this.is.the.only.thing.that.the.newspapers.wrote.about.the.event..which.to.them.was.
simply.about.another.few.people.seeking.their.salvation:.
.
"FOURTEEN.CONVERTED..Fourteen.conversions.are.reported.in.a.tent.meeting.conducted.at.
Eighth.and.Pratt.streets.by.the.Rev..William.Branham..
.
Not.the.five.hundred,.not.even.the.seventeen...And.not.some.of.the.greater.numbers.Branham.
gives.when.he.exaggerates.this.story.with.even.more.added.details..
.
Such.as.the.time.that.he.claimed.that.five.thousand.were.converted:.
.
That.day.down.there,.about.thirty\three.years.ago,.or.thirty\four,.standing.on.the.banks.of.the.
Ohio.River.there,.at.the.bridge,.and.about.five.thousand.people.or.more.gathered.on.the.banks..

.
It's.all.down.through.the.records..The.first.time.that.was.ever.taken,.the.Canadian.newspaper.
packed. it. thirty\one. years. ago,. across. the. whole. province. of. Canada,. all. the. provinces,. the.
Dominion.of.Canada..Said,."A.mystic.Light.appears.over.a.minister.while.baptizing.in.the.river.".
That.was.in.1930,.at.the.foot.of.Spring.Street.at.Jeffersonville,.Indiana,.when.around.ten.thousand.
people.was.standing.there..And.I.was.baptizing.my.seventeenth.person..
.
A.Testimony.Upon.The.Sea.preached.in.Port.Alberni,.British.Columbia,.Canada.on.July.26,.1962:.
.
I'm.anxious.to.hear.the.upcoming.results.from.the.study.on.Branham's.first.years.as.a.Pentecostal.
pastor.in.the.church.that.the.other.Pentecostal.Pastor.Roy.E..Davis.started...The.same.Roy.E..
Davis.that.was.establishing.the.White.Knights.of.the.Ku.Klux.Klan,.which.would.have.been.the.
one.that.taught.William.Branham.the.mystic.knowledge.of.Freemasonry..
.
Even.after.everything.I.myself.have.uncovered.in.the.many.fabricated.stories.Branham.told,.this.
one.shocks.even.me...I.had.no.idea.that.Branham.was.a.Pentecostal.minister.before.the.flood...I.
had.no.idea.that.he.was.preaching.at.a.Pentecostal.church..when.practically.the.entire.world.
believes.that.he.started.out.as.a.Missionary.Baptist.preacher..
.
I.knew.that.the.story.of.the.1933.Baptism,.specifically.the.part.about.the.mystic.light.speaking.
from.the.heavens.so.that.ten.thousand.people.would.witness.God.telling.the.world.that.William.
Branham.was.the."next.forerunner".of.Christ..
.
But.I.did.not.know.that.it.was.such.a.small.event..so.small.that.it.received.just.a.tiny.little.section.
in.the.newspaper..less.than.the.seventeen.that.were.baptized.before.Branham's.claim.that.
"God.spoke.from.the.heavens.and.it.changed.the.hearts.of.over.five.thousand.people.".
.
I.recently.watched.a.documentary.on.the.ancient.religion.of.Hindu,.from.the.country.Branham.
wanted.so.badly.to.return.to:..India..
.
The.documentary.described.how.the.story.of.the.Hindu.gods.were.embellished.so.that.the.people.
would.worship.them.more...The.people.themselves.KNEW.that.they.were.adding.details.to.the.
story,.but.their.form.of.worship.was.not.to.worship.in.truth..they.would.rather.invent.new.
stories.and.greater.stories.to.make.their.god.sound.more.powerful..
.
The.question.I.will.leave.you.with.is.this:..Which."god".did.William.Branham.serve?..Was.it.the.
God.of.the.Bible,.the.One.True.God?..The.God.that.not.only.ASKS.us.to.follow.all.truth..the.God.
that.IS.TRUTH?.
.

Or.did.William.Branham.serve.another.god,.one.that.required.fabricating.supernatural.events.so.
that.he.sounded.greater.than.he.really.was?..One.that.the.truth.was.not.good.enough..when.
Branham.sold.his.soul.to.this.god,.he.was.required.to.add.fictional.details.to.lift.this.god.into.
power?..
.
Wouldn't.you.rather.serve.the.God.of.the.Bible?..Wouldn't.you.rather.believe.in.Jesus.Christ?.
.
There.IS.power.in.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ..the.simple.Good.News.that.God.loved.us.so.much.
that.He.sent.His.only.Son.to.suffer.and.die.for.our.sins.so.that.we.do.not.have.to...The.Good.News.
that.Christ.paid.our.penalty,.and.now.holds.the.keys.to.death,.hell,.and.the.grave...The.POWERFUL.
story.that.Christ.rose.again,.so.that.we.will.rise.with.Him!.
.
It.is.not.a.power.that.the.cult.would.enjoy.and.immortalize.with.added.fictional.details...It.doesn't.
turn.people.into.wizards,.give.them.super\human.abilities,.or.make.them.communicate.with.the.
dead.like.William.Branham.claimed.to.have.done.for.the.mother.whose.son.had."gone.on.to.a.
better.place.".
.
It.is.the.power.of.Love...It.will.change.hearts...When.you.tell.others.of.the.Gospel,.you.can.take.
the.most.violent.sinner.and.make.them.into.the.most.humble.seeker.of.Truth..
.
I've.made.my.choice.as.to.which.God.I.will.serve...Won't.you.make.the.same.choice?..
.
As.for.me.and.my.house,.we.will.serve.the.Lord!.

The$Case$for$Christ$$
.
Lee.Strobel.is.a.Christian.author,.journalist,.and.pastor.from.Arlington.Height,.Illinois...His.name.
is.recognized.by.many.Christians,.even.from.within.the.boundaries.of.the.Branham.cult...His.book,.
"Case. for. Christ,". is. one. of. the. books. that. motivates. and. rejuvenates. the. faith. of. Christians.
around.the.globe..
.
In."Case.for.Christ,".he.describes.his.journey.from.atheism.to.Christianity,.and.declares.to.the.
world.his.reason.for.becoming.a.Christian...He.also.describes.some.of.the.many.reasons.people.
avoid.Christianity.based.on.his.own.personal.experiences..
.
When.Strobel.started.his.journey,.he.was.ONLY.willing.to.look.at.part.of.the.reasoning.that.had.
convinced.him.there.was.no.God...Of.himself,.Strobel.says.this:.
.
As.far.as.I.was.concerned,.the.case.was.closed..There.was.enough.proof.for.me.to.rest.easy.with.
the. conclusion. that. the. divinity. of. Jesus. was. nothing. more. than. the. fanciful. invention. of.
superstitious.people..Or.so.I.thought..\.Lee.Strobel.
.
But.over.time,.as.he.continued.to.investigate.the.Bible,.the.evidence.became.overwhelming...And.
like.any.person.seeking.their.salvation.should.do,.Strobel.started.with.what.could.not.be.denied:.
factual,. historical. record.. . What. have. we. learned. from. history. about. Jesus. Christ,. and. is. it.
accurate?.
.
When.I.was.enslaved.in.the.cult.of.William.Branham,.Lee.Strobel.was.a.name.I.was.familiar.with,.
and.there.was.a.respectful.atmosphere.surrounding.the.evidence.found.in.the.book,."A.Case.for.
Christ."..Strobel.was.a.hero.of.the.faith;.he.was.a.man.who.went.against.all.odds.to.prove.Christ.
and.stand.on.absolute.truth.that.Jesus.is.Lord!.
.
And.this.was.always.odd.to.me...If.Strobel.went.so.far.as.to.turn.his.heart.and.mind.to.Christ,.why.
did. he. not. continue. all. the. way. into. Branham?. . How. could. he. not. have. known. that. William.
Branham.was.the."messenger.for.the.hour,".if.Branham's.ministry.was.so.widespread?.
.
I.remember.those.stories.about.the.light.that.shone.from.the.heavens,.and.the.voice.of.God.that.
spoke.through.the.clouds.as.William.Branham.was.baptizing.the.people,.and.I.believed.it.when.
Branham.told.me.that.all.of.the.newspapers.ran.an.article.about.God.speaking...
.
I.remember.thinking,."How.blind.can.people.be?..Even.the.newspapers.proclaim.that.Branham.
was.sent!..Why.does.nobody.know.about.this.'Seventh.Angel.Messenger?'".
.
Having. read. several. times. through. the. historical. information. that. has. now. surfaced. on. the.
Searching. For. Vindication. website,. www.searchingforvindication.com,. I. am. now. starting. to.
realize.exactly.WHY.the.name.William.Branham.is.unknown.to.so.many.in.the.Christian.faith...
What.we.believed.was.not.exactly.true...Much.of.it.was.not.true.at.all..

www.seekyethetruth.com.

.
After.their.website.launched,.Christians.from.around.the.world.are.starting.to.leave.the.Branham.
cult,.and.are.forming.private.support.groups.for.those.who.spent.so.many.years.in.bondage...I.
am.active.in.several.of.these.groups,.watching.with.excitement.as.each.person.starts.pouring.
their.hearts.out.and.getting.back.into.the.REAL.Voice.of.God..the.Bible...
.
For.me,.it's.like.watching.a.good.boxing.match.with.the.underdogs.fighting.the.champion...The.
champion.may.have.a.big.fist.that.knocks.the.little.guy.to.the.ground,.and.he.may.stand.over.him.
pounding.his.face.into.the.ground...While.he.is.down.on.the.ground.taking.each.blow,.he's.not.
going.anywhere...And.the.longer.he.stays.there,.the.more.it.hurts.\\.If.he.lays.there.long.enough,.
HE'S.NOT.getting.back.up!..But.if.that.little.guy.can.muster.enough.strength.to.get.back.to.his.
feet,.he's.still.in.the.match...My.favorite.match.is.when.the.little.guy..the.one.that.everyone.is.
against..overtakes.the.champion.and.claims.the.title!.
.
Strobel's."Case.for.Christ".is.a.good.recommendation.for.anyone.who.has.been.enslaved.in.the.
worst.cult.churches.affiliated.with.the."Message.of.the.Hour"..the.churches.that.they.call."tape.
only.". . Those. are. the. churches. that. have. no. scriptural. teaching. whatsoever,. and. typically. are.
filled.with.people.who.have.no.idea.what.is.between.the.bindings.of.that.shiny.leather.book.they.
carry.with.them..."Case.for.Christ".will.challenge.you,.make.you.want.to.study.the.scriptures.for.
yourself,.and.see.for.yourself.whether.Christ.is.the.Son.of.God...And.if.you.dig.deep.enough,.I.can.
assure.you.that.you.will.come.to.the.exact.same.conclusion.that.Strobel.came.to:..Christ.is.the.
Son.of.the.Living.God,.and.is.soon.returning.to.take.His.Bride.to.be.with.Him!.
.
One.person.in.the.support.groups.recently.brought.up.this.subject,.and.quickly.recognized.the.
similarities.between.Lee.Strobel.and.Searching.For.Vindication...And.while.I.never.really.stopped.
to.think.about.it,.the.similarities.are.phenomenal!..Yet.in.opposite.directions!.
.
Searching.For.Vindication.were.not.atheists,.they.were.enslaved.by.the.cult.of.William.Branham...
Like.me,.they.believed.every.word.that.was.spoon\fed.from.behind.the.pulpits.without.question...
But.compare.this.to.Strobel's.teaching.and.his.associates.in.the.atheist.crowd...Many.atheists.use.
SOME.recorded.history.in.their.attempt.to.prove.that.Christ.is.not.the.Son.of.God...Once.they.
find.that.little.shred.of.evidence.against.Christ,.rather.than.continuing.on.to.examine.ALL.of.the.
evidence,.they.feel.that.this.little.bit.of.evidence.is.enough.to.deny.the.Christ..
.
But.Searching.For.Vindication.was.not.satisfied.with.just.a.small.portion.of.evidence.that.their.
"prophet".was.the."messenger.for.this.day."..They.chose.to.continue.on.to.examine.ALL.of.the.
evidence..good.or.bad...
.
There. are. many. things. that. William. Branham. CLAIMED. to. have. prophesied,. from. Marilyn.
Monroe's.death.to.egg\shaped.cars,.to.the.fourth.term.of.president.Franklin.Delano.Roosevelt,.
even.to.the.end.of.the.world...Some.things.that.Branham.CLAIMED.to.have.prophesied.seems.to.
have.came.to.pass...Other.things..like.Armageddon..are.easily.found.in.scripture.for.all.to.
see...Of.course.there.will.be.an.end.of.the.world!.

But. when. the. atheists. told. Strobel. to. stop. searching. for. Christ. and. listen. to. bits. and. pieces,.
Strobel.continued...When.the.cult.pastors.told.Searching.for.Vindication.to.stop."searching".and.
rely.on.what.they.DO.know,.the.authors.of.the.website.did.not.rest.until.they.had.all.of.the.facts..
.
William.Branham.could.have.had.five.hundred.prophecies.that.came.to.pass...But.if.there.was.
one.single.prophecy.that.did.not.come.to.pass.as.God.had.spoken.through.him,.then.God.did.not.
speak...And.if.God.did.not.speak,.then.Branham.was.a.false.prophet!.
.
Searching.for.Vindication.chose.two.well\known.events.described.in.the.cult.that.SHOULD.have.
had. a. mountain. of. evidence. to. support.. . With. this. evidence,. anybody. who. denied. William.
Branham. SHOULD. have. been. satisfied. in. their. hearts. and. minds. that. William. Branham. was. a.
"vindicated".prophet...They.started.with.Branham's.alleged.prophecy.that.sixteen.men.fell.from.
the.Clark.Memorial.Bridge,.and.the.Voice.of.God.that.spoke.through.the.heavens.to.announce.
the."seventh.age.messenger."..
.
That.voice,.remember,.was.recorded.in.several.newspapers...It.was.published.and.printed.all.the.
way.from.Jeffersonville,.Indiana.all.the.way.up.into.Canada.according.to.William.Branham!..It.
should.be.easy.to.find,.right?.
.
And.those.sixteen.men.that.fell.from.the.bridge.would.be.quickly.identified..it.just.so.happens.
that.a.coast.guard.station.kept.daily.logs.to.record.every.single.event,.big.or.small,.that.happened.
during.the.construction.of.the.bridge..
.
But.here.is.where.the.story.SEEMS.to.have.turned.from.what.happened.with.Lee.Strobel's."Case.
for. Christ.". . Strobel. was. atheist,. and. in. his. journey. to. investigate. the. truth,. he. stumbled. into.
evidence.that.was.solid.proof.that.Jesus.Christ.was.the.Son.of.God...
.
Searching.For.Vindication,.on.the.other.hand,.stumbled.onto.some.evidence.that.was.strongly.
against.their.research...While.the.cult.pastors.told.them.Branham.was.the."vindicated.prophet,".
they.suddenly.learned.that.he.was.not.so.vindicated...In.fact,.he.was.proven.to.have.lied.about.
the.entire.event...Not.just.the.event.described.as.prophecy.when.the.bridge.supposedly.fell,.but.
also. the. "Voice. of. God". that. spoke. through. the. heavens.. . The. "Voice. of. God". that. was. the.
inspiration.for.the.name.of.the.cult.headquarters..
.
It.seems.as.though.there.was.no.voice..
.
Without. a. voice. speaking. from. the. heavens,. Branham's. entire. "1933. commission. story". is.
invalidated...And.with.no.commission,.we.have.no.messenger..
.
Without. sixteen. men. falling. from. the. bridge,. we. have. no. "vindicated. prophecy.". . And. with. a.
single.failed.prophecy,.we.do.not.have.a."vindicated.prophet."..Instead.we.have.a.false.prophet..
.
But.even.still,.Searching.for.Vindication.did.not.stop.there...Learning.from.experience,.evidence.
that.does.not.include.ALL.of.the.facts.is.not.evidence.at.all..

.
So.now,.Searching.For.Vindication.is.examining.the.Branham.Tabernacle.itself...This.is.the.building.
that.seemed.to.have.started.it.all..
.
The.Branham.Tabernacle,.the.scary.looking.building.that.sits.on.the.corner.of.Eighth.Street.and.
Penn.Street.in.Jeffersonville,.Indiana,.is.the.key.to.this.entire.cult...It.is.the."cornerstone".so.to.
speak..
.
This.is.the.building.where.many.were.supposedly.converted.to.Christ.and.led.down.to.the.river.
to. be. baptized. when. the. faked. "commission. story". was. given.. . This. was. where. five. hundred.
converts.were.supposed.to.have.been.led.to.Christ,.baptized,.and.all.while.ten.thousand.people.
were.watching.from.the.banks.of.the.river..
.
But.it.is.really.deeper.than.that...The.Branham.Tabernacle.is.the.building.were.the.cult.leader,.
William.Marrion.Branham.was.supposed.to.have.secretly.hidden.the.six.(or.seven).prophecies.of.
1933:.
.
And,.God.in.Heaven.knows,.that.lays.right.there.in.the.corner.of.that.Tabernacle.stone.since.1933,.
wrote.on.a.page.of.a.Bible,.laying.right.there..
.
65\0718E..SPIRITUAL.FOOD.IN.DUE.SEASON.
.
Even. though. it. is. obvious. that. this. is. just. another. fabricated. story. . the. first. time. William.
Branham. even. mentions. these. prophecies. is. the. year. 1953. . almost. a. hundred. recorded.
sermons.into.his.ministry!.
.
But. Searching. For. Vindication. is. not. stopping. with. the. failed. bridge. prophecy.. . They. are. not.
stopping.with.the.fabricated."commission".story...
.
They.want.the.facts...We.already.have.a.false.prophet...But.do.we.have.a.single.prophecy?..Was.
the.church.even.BUILT.in.1933?..
.
Both."Searching.For.Vindication".and.Lee.Strobel.remind.me.of.the.story.of.Hezekiah.in.the.Bible..
.
Hezekiah.was.only.twenty\five.years.old.when.he.began.to.reign.as.king.in.Judah,.and.I'm.sure.
that.he.faced.some.opposition..
.
They. did. not. have. any. false. prophets. like. William. Branham. to. worship. back. then. . religions.
dedicated.towards.worship.of.something.other.than.God.while.seemingly.associated.with.God..
.
In. the. days. of. Hezekiah,. the. people. worshipped. the. bronze. serpent.. . Moses. had. made. the.
serpent,.and.that.serpent.brought."divine.healing."..The.people.of.Judah.gave.offerings.to.it,.just.
like.the.people.in.the.cult.of.William.Branham.pay.their.offerings.to.Voice.of.God.recordings..

But.Hezekiah,.though.very.young,.did.not.listen.to.the.elders.who.opposed.him.by.giving.a.small.
part.of.the.facts...He.stood.for.Truth,.and.that.Truth.was.found.in.the.Word.of.God...Hezekiah.
tore.down.the.bronze.serpent...He.tore.down.the.worship.of.divine.healing,.just.as.Searching.For.
Vindication.is.doing.today...
.
I.have.had.several.writing.in.to.ask.us:."Why.do.you.continue?..Why.do.you.keep.focusing.on.the.
tearing.down.of.Branham's.fictional.ministry.when.I.could.leave.that.and.focus.only.on.spreading.
the.teachings.from.the.Word.of.God?".
.
This.must.have.been.very.similar.opposition.for.Hezekiah..."Why.don't.you.leave.the.serpent.
there.and.let.us.worship.it?..Just.read.from.the.Book.of.the.Law!..It's.ok.if.we.worship.that.snake!..
Moses.put.it.there!..Don't.you.remember.Moses..he's.the.one.that.spoke.with.GOD!".
.
I'm. thankful. that. history. has. preserved. the. story. of. Hezekiah.. . It's. led. to. many. people. like.
Searching.For.Vindication.that.are.tearing.down.false.worship...I'm.thankful.that.the.history.was.
preserved. so. that. Searching. For. Vindication. could. help. lead. others. out. of. the. cult. and. back.
towards.Christ..
.
I.recently.read.a.summary.of.the.words.of.Jesus.in.Matthew.10.as.he.sent.out.the.twelve.apostles...
Unlike. the. old. English. words. in. the. King. James. Version. that. are. so. difficult. for. many. to.
understand,.this.is.a.summary.in.today's.English..
.
Many.in.the.cult.are.afraid.of.this.sort.of.thing,.because.they.were.taught.to.worship.the.words.
.as.they.are..in.the.Bible.rather.than.the.meaning.behind.those.words...But.this.summary.is.
what.we.would.be.hearing.if.we.were.standing.there.in.front.of.Jesus.Christ.as.he.spoke.directly.
to.the.twelve..
.
I.thought.it.would.be.fitting.to.end.with.that.summary...I.urge.you.to.review.Matthew.10.for.
yourselves.. . Be. like. Lee. Strobel. and. "Searching. For. Vindication.". . Search. these. things. out.
personally..this.is.a.personal.relationship.with.Christ,.not.some.boring.history.lesson.in.grade.
school!..This.is.your.life!..This.book,.the.Bible,.should.be.the.air.you.breathe,.your.entire.WORLD!..
It.is.the.Word.of.God!..The.REAL.Voice.of.God,.and.it's.speaking.to.YOU!.
.
Here.is.the.summary,.and.you.can.find.it.in.the.version.of.the.Bible.with.the.name.that.should.be.
very.fitting:.."The.Message.".
.
"Don't. be. na|ve.. Some. people. will. impugn. your. motives,. others. will. smear. your.

Job's$Accuser$$
.
I.have.many.Christians.who.talk.to.me.now,.amazed.at.some.of.the.stories.from.my.days.behind.
the.prison.walls.of.a.cult...I.always.get.a.chuckle.out.of.them.when.I.say.things.like,."Until.you.
have.placed.your.faith.in.a.prophecy.about.egg\shaped.cars,.you.have.never.known.the.Gospel.
of.Jesus.Christ!"..(joking,.of.course.).
.
One.of.the.funniest.events.in.my.list.of.crazy.stories.was.when.the.cult.leader,.William.Marrion.
Branham,. preached. a. sermon. entitled. "Marriage. and. Divorce.". . There. is. enough. situational.
comedy.surrounding.that.sermon.that.television.could.produce.a.series.on.prime\time.TV!.
.
This.sermon.was.preached.in.1965,.and.according.to.Branham,.this.was.a.full.thirty\two.years.
into.his.ministry.since.he.learned.about.the.truth.in.Pentecostalism...(Although.he.lied.about.that,.
which.is.another.comedy.routine.for.another.day.).
.
The.founding.fathers.of.the.cult.say.that.this.sermon.was."special,".because.William.Branham.
brought.the.great."mystery".of.marriage.and.divorce..."How.priviledged.we.are.that.God.sent.a.
'prophet'.to.show.us.this.mystery,.otherwise.we.might.have.traded.our.wives.around.like.cattle!"..
.
It's.a.riot!..THIRTY\TWO.YEARS.of.claiming.to.preach.the.Bible,.and.this.is.a.great.mystery?..It's.
right.there.in.the.Bible,.all.you.have.to.do.is.read.the.Book!..Jesus.talks.about.it...Paul.talks.about.
it...Moses.wrote.about.it...
.
It's.ironic,.because.even.the.prophet.Malachi..who.was.supposed.to.have.announced.this.great.
cult.leader..wrote.about.marriage.and.divorce...
.
."For.the.man.who.does.not.love.his.wife.but.divorces.her,.says.the.Lord,.the.God.of.Israel,.covers.
his.garment.with.violence,.says.the.Lord.of.hosts..So.guard.yourselves.in.your.spirit,.and.do.not.
be.faithless.".\.Malachi.2:16.
.
The.climax.of.the.comedy.is.when.we.find.that.this.sermon.was.a.result.of.his.own.son,.Billy.Paul.
Branham,.getting.divorced.and.re\married..."Let's.pretend.we.know.NOTHING.about.what.is.in.
the. Bible. about. this. subject!. . Then,. since. we. didn't. know,. Billy. Paul. is. under. the. blanket. of.
ignorance!"..I.can.just.hear.Colonel.Klink:.."I.KNOW.NOTHING!..NOTHING!!!".
.
Can't.you.see.the.humor!..Thirty\two.years.of.claiming.to.have.read.the.Bible,.and.he.didn't.even.
know.that!..
.
I.can.just.hear.the.men.of.the.church.around.the.water.cooler.the.next.day..."Boy,.I.sure.wish.I'd.
left.Ethel.and.married.Barbara.before.Sunday...Now.I'm.STUCK.with.her!".

You.see,.that's.what.happens.when.you.worship.in.a.legalistic.cult...That's.what.happens.when.
you.are.falsely.taught.that.a.Christian.does.not.sin..you.have.to.bend.the.rules.a.bit.so.that.
your.leader.and.his.family.are.not.shown.to.be.sinners..
.
We.are.ALL.sinners!..We.are.ALL.unworthy,.but.made.worthy.by.the.power.of.the.cross!..
.
I.like.how.Paul.says.it.best.in.1.Timothy.1:.
.
Here.is.a.trustworthy.saying.that.deserves.full.acceptance:.Christ.Jesus.came.into.the.world.to.
save.sinnersof.whom.I.am.the.worst...But.for.that.very.reason.I.was.shown.mercy.so.that.in.
me,.the.worst.of.sinners,.Christ.Jesus.might.display.his.immense.patience.as.an.example.for.those.
who.would.believe.in.him.and.receive.eternal.life...Now.to.the.King.eternal,.immortal,.invisible,.
the.only.God,.be.honor.and.glory.for.ever.and.ever..Amen..
.
One.of.my.newfound.freedoms.in.life.is.the.Sunday.school.in.my.church...It.is.absolutely.amazing...
.
After.the.first.visit,.I.told.my.wife,."I've.never.been.to.Sunday.school.in.my.life!..Sunday.school.in.
the.cult.was.all.stories.about.how.some.of.the.old.men.were.so.blessed.to.have.spent.time.with.
'a.prophet.'..How.he.told.them.to.go.fishing.and.enjoy.themselves,.and.how.they.couldn't.cast.
the.reel.without.bringing.in.a.fish!..Or.how.he.just.knew.there'd.be.a.set.of.antlers.a.certain.size,.
how.kind.he.was.to.others...It.was.worship.of.a.man,.not.studying.of.the.bible...
.
They.ought.to.call.it.a.memorial.service.for.a.dead.guy,.not.a.school.to.learn.the.bible..
.
The. church. I. attend. has. men. who. are. enthusiastic. for. learning. more. about. God.. . And. they.
continually.seek.to.learn.more..not.sit.on.a.stump.because.some.other.man.had.told.them.
everything.they.needed.to.know.about.the.Bible..
.
It's.ironic,.because.William.Branham.told.everyone.in.the.cult.not.to.watch.television.or.go.to.
movies. . this. was. SIN.. . Yet. eighty\percent. of. the. cult. now. will. be. found. in. front. of. their.
televisions.or.in.theaters,.and.discussing.how.good.the.latest.movie.is...For.YEARS,.many.in.the.
churches.hid.their.televisions.in.the.closets!.
.
Yet,.while.they.will.sit.in.a.theater.watching.a.movie.for.themselves,.they.want.to.take.some.
other.man's.word.about.their.Bibles...Have.you.ever.thought.about.what.it.would.be.like.if.the.
situation.were.reversed?..What.if.they.actually.LISTENED.to.their.prophet,.and.stopped.watching.
this."evil.thing,".and.took.SOMEBODY.ELSE'S.word.about.it?..What.if.instead.of.seeing.Star.Trek.
on.the.big.screen.with.all.of.its.amazing.special.effects,.they.sat.in.circles.in.each.other's.houses.
or.in.this.memorial.service.that.they.called.Sunday.school,.and.they.told.how.the.great.captain.
Kirk.led.his.crew.to.conquer.the.villain!..

The. real. eye. opener. has. been. for. the. past. several. weeks. in. Sunday. school.. . We. have. been.
studying.the.Book.of.Job...Not.just.the.summary..like.most.cult.pastors.do,.and.which.can.be.
found.in.the.first.four.chapters..we.are.studying.the.entire.book.from.chapter.one.to.chapter.
forty\two..
.
Many.pastors,.even.cult.pastors,.preach.Job...How.job.was.patient.and.enduring,.and.how.he.had.
false.accusers...But.there.is.SO.much.more.to.the.story.that.is.in.the.book!.
.
Not.to.mention.the.fact.that.the.cult.was.taught.the.ISLAMIC.VERSION.of.Job!..Not.even.the.Job.
that.was.in.the.Christian.Bible!.
.
Islam. is. worship. of. a. prophet,. the. prophet. Mohammed.. . Prophets. in. Islam. are. lifted. up. into.
greater.esteem.than.other.men,.just.as.we.find.in.the.cult.of.William.Branham...Therefore,.ALL.
great.men.of.the.Bible.must.be.prophets!..Branham.was.no.different..
.
Here.is.the.summary.of.Branham's.teaching.on.Job,.found.in.a.sermon.that.was.dedicated.to.
teaching.his.congregation.about.Job..
.
Job,.let's.take.a.little.of.his.life..Job.was.a.prophet..He.was.a.man.that.lived.back.before.the.Bible.
was.written..It's.been.thought.that.Job.was.one.of.the.oldest.Books.of.the.Bible,.because.It.was.
written.before.Genesis.was.written..Job,.this.great.warrior.and.prophet,.was.a\\a.mighty.man.in.
his.day..No.doubt.that.he.had.been.brought.up.and.had.served.the.Lord.all.of.his.life..And.had.
lived.such.a.gallant.life.to.the.people,.all.had.respects.for.him..
.
65\1127E..I.HAVE.HEARD.BUT.NOW.I.SEE.
.
Starting.in.1950,.William.Branham.taught.that.Job.was.a.great.prophet.of.old,.the."messenger.
for.the.hour."..He.called.Job.a.prophet.over.a.hundred.times.in.recorded.tape..
.
Just.because.Job.declared.that.his.God.was.real,.and.that.one.day.he.would.stand.before.God.in.
Job.19,.Branham.twists.this.single.statement.to.trick.the.people.into.thinking.that.the.book.of.
Job.was.a.book.of.prophecy...it.wasn't..
.
If.you.are.a.Muslim,.and.you.follow.the.teaching.of.the.Quran,.then.yes,.you.believe.Job.was.a.
prophet...You.might.hear.them.say,."Just.like.our.great.leader,.praise.be.to.Allah."..Replace."Allah".
with.Branham,.and.you.will.find.what.the.people.in.the.cult.of.William.Branham.might.say..
.
But.if.you.are.a.Christian,.and.you.study.your.Bible,.you.will.know.that.Job.was.just.a.man,.like.
you.and.I...He.stood.firmly.on.his.belief.that.his.sacrifice.made.him.pure.and.holy..just.like.other.
Christians.stand.firmly.on.their.belief.that.the.sacrifice.of.Christ.saves.them.from.their.sins..
.
In.fact,.most.Christian.scholars.agree.that.while.written.by.a.Jew,.the.man.Job.was.not.Jewish...In.
the.story,.Job.was.from.Edom..not.exactly.where.you.are.likely.to.find.a.Jew,.he.was.far.more.
likely.a.Gentile..

.
And.for.those.of.you.who.were.in.bondage.in.a.legalistic.cult,.the.story.will.be.very.enlightening.
.because.it.actually.is.a.book.representing.the.Grace.we.have.through.Christ's.sacrifice...One.of.
the.accusers.represents.legalistic,.what.Paul.would.call."worldly".religion..
.
Job.had.three.accusers,.Eliphaz,.Bildad,.and.Zophar...One.came.with.the.voice.of.philosopher,.
one.as.a.historian,.and.one.representing.legalism...
.
Eliphaz.spoke.like.the.great.philosophers.of.old..."If.you.sin,.you.will.suffer."..Bildad.looked.at.
Job's.past.rather.than.the.sacrifice..."You.are.suffering,.therefore.you.MUST.have.been.sinning."..
It. reminds. you. of. those. little. old. ladies. in. the. cult,. shaking. their. fingers. at. you. when. you. go.
through.a.trial..
.
Zophar.was.the.one.who.represented.legalism...He.came.with.straight,.solid.accusations..."You.
ARE.sinning!..Get.down.to.the.alter.and.repent,.sinner!".
.
I.have.been.in.several.cult.churches.that.beat.their.congregations.down.like.they.are.whipping.
them.into.submission...Constantly,.service.after.service,.they.pound.the.people.into.the.ground.
rather. than. lift. them. up. and. give. them. encouragement.. . The. people. are. sheep. all. right...
Constantly.sheared.until.they.are.shearing.the.bruises.from.the.last.shearing!.
.
This.was.how.Zophar.was.to.Job...Job.sat.there.taking.his.pounding.from.Zophar,.but.he.wasn't.
looking.to.how.he.lived.his.life,.the.things.that.he.had.done,.or.even.what.he.had.been.thinking.
that.might.have.been.ungodly...Job.knew.that.he.was.safe.and.secure.because.of.the.sacrifice..
.
Many.Christian.pastors.falsely.teach.that.Job.lived.some.perfect.life.that.only.Christ.could.live,.
and.that.Job.himself.represented.Christ.living.the.perfect.life...But.nothing.can.be.further.from.
the.truth...No.man.is.without.sin,.all.have.fell.short...Again,.Job.was.a.man,.like.you.and.I..
.
In.fact,.the.entire.chapter.nine.of.Job.describes.just.how.full.of.sin.that.man.is...Nothing.we.can.
do.of.ourselves.can.make.us.spotless..only.the.sacrifice.can.make.us.clean..
.
To.his.accusers,.Job.says,."Truly.I.know.that.it.is.so:.But.how.can.a.man.be.in.the.right.before.
God?"..Job.9:2.
.
It. is. interesting,. because. after. Job. describing. how. all. men. are. born. into. sin,. Zophar. starts.
attacking...Any.time.a.man.or.woman.confesses.their.sin,.legalistic.false.teachers.find.fuel.for.
their.fire..

I've. heard. some. cult. pastors. mimicking. "the. prophet,". pretending. to. have. this. gift. of. "mind.
reading".that.Branham.falsely.taught.was."scriptural.discernment."..The.gift.of.discerning.right.
from. wrong. was. changed. into. fortune. telling,. able. to. guess. names. and. addresses. that. were.
written.on.the.backs.of.prayer.cards..
.
These. wolves. behind. the. pulpit. beat. the. congregations. down. with. their. Charismatic\style.
screaming.so.that.after.breaking.their.legs,.they.can.carry.each.sheep.to.be.sheared...They.want.
to. become. the. hero. of. the. story,. the. one. who. single\handedly. turned. the. people. into.
righteousness..bypassing.the.Throne.of.Mercy..

themselves.need.the.Grace.that.Christ.is.offering..

which.is.a.story.that.represents.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ.and.how.Christ's.atonement.for.sin.is.
sufficient...
.
Rather.than.leaning.on.the.firm.foundation.of.the.sacrifice.as.we.find.in.the.Bible,.Branham.claims.
that.Job.leaned.on.prophecy...Instead.of.the.book.of.Job.representing.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ,.

went.by.inspiration..He.was.a.prophet.to.whom.the.Word.of.the.Lord.comes.to..He.had\\he.had.
only.to.be.inspired,.because.he.knowed.his.position.that.he.was.God's.prophet..Now,.the.only.

Now.that.the.pastors.of.the.cults.are.seeing.the.noticeable.decrease.of.their.congregations,.and.
are.fielding.the.many.calls.of.questions.regarding.the.many.things.Branham.claimed.that.have.
been.proven.to.be.false,.their.sermons.have.also.noticeably.changed..
.
For.years,.many.of.us.enslaved.by.the.cult.of.William.Branham.sat.listening.to.what.were.called.
sermons,. and. those. public. speeches. were. in. honor. and. commemoration. of. a. man. who. we.
believed.to.be.a.prophet.of.the.Lord...Many.of.us.heard.these.stories.now.under.question.over.
and.over.from.behind.the.pulpits,.with.some.strange.repetition.that.we.ourselves.did.not.even.
recognize..
.
But.now,.as.the.congregations.are.starting.to.awaken,.the.sermons.have.changed.quite.a.bit...In.
many.sermons,.the.focal.point.is.no.longer.William.Branham...The.focal.point.has.quickly.became.
the.fear.that.their.churches.are.falling.apart,.and.that.fear.is.increased.with.vain.repetitions.of.
the.man.and.women.who.left.the.church.in.days.gone.by,.and.are.no.longer.alive...Sermons.that.
used.to.be.about.one.dead.guy.are.now.about.many.dead.people...
.
It's.odd,.really...Before.Branham.was.exposed.as.a.false.prophet,.very.little.of.the.Bible.was.taught.
.instead,.pastors.proclaimed.what.William.Branham.SAID.about.the.Bible...And.as.many.of.us.
have. noticed,. more. often. than. not,. what. he. said. was. entirely. different. than. what. the. Bible.
actually.said...
.
But.the.pastors.used.to.proclaim.that.the.Bible.was.their.absolute,.and.it.lined.up.perfectly.with.
William.Branham's."message."..
.
William.Branham.made.a.few.boastful.statements,.telling.others.that.if.any.prophecy.did.not.
happen.like.he.said,.we.could.post.a.sign.on.his.back.that.said,."False.Prophet."..Cult.pastors.have.
taken.this.a.step.further.in.days.gone.by,.saying.that.if.William.Branham.was.not.the."prophet.
for.this.day,".then.we.should.put.a.sign.on.their.back."False.Teacher."..And.rightfully.so..if.they.
were.retelling.false.teaching,.then.that.absolutely.makes.them.false.teachers..
.
But.now.that.so.many.of.William.Branham's."prophecies".are.under.question,.and.now.having.
realized.that.he.never.even.mentioned.the.six.(or.seven).prophecies.of.1933.until.the.1950's,.you.
won't.hear.any.boasting.from.the.pastors..their.faith.in.what.they.call."the.prophet".has.been.
shaken..
.
Few.people.have.caught.it,.but.their.faith.in.William.Branham.is.not.the.only.thing.that.has.been.
shaken.. . While. telling. their. congregations. for. so. many. years. that. the. Bible. was. absolute,.
undeniable.truth,.they.are.taking.a.much,.much.different.approach.with.their.sermons:..the.Bible.
has.discrepancies..

I.am.in.amazement.by.this,.because.in.all.of.Paul's.letters,.his.instruction.to.the.church.was.to.lift.
one.another.up.in.faith.and.in.love...How.can.we.be.lifted.in.faith,.when.the.shepherds.in.places.
of.worship.are.preaching.questions.instead.of.answers?..
.
One.cult.pastor.from.Johnson.City,.Tennessee.has.been.quoted.saying.that."There.is.no.proof.
that.God.is.real."..The.same.man.that.preached.an.entire.sermon.defending.the.false.prophet..
and. his. entire. defense. was. nothing. more. than. showing. his. congregation. what. he. called.
"discrepancies".in.the.scriptures...In.other.words,."The.Bible.has.error,.so.my.'prophet'.is.allowed.
to.have.error.too!".
.
I.am.in.more.amazement.that.cult.followers.are.swallowing.what.they.are.being.spoon\fed...It.is.
as.if.they.don't.remember.the.same.pastors.telling.them.that.the.Word.of.God.was.undeniable!.
.
In.the.new.church.I.attend,.the.Bible.is.proclaimed.as.absolute.Truth...And.in.our.Sunday.schools,.
instead. of. retelling. stories. of. how. great. our. pastor. was. several. years. ago,. they. examine. the.
scriptures.with.a.fine\toothed.comb.to.prepare.the.congregation.to.defend.their.belief.in.Christ...
.
Picture.an.army.getting.ready.for.battle,.and.the.general.giving.his.advice.to.the.troops:..You.are.
going.out.to.fight.a.great.battle,.men!..Good.luck,.I'm.not.giving.you.any.weapons!".
.
That's.what.cult.pastors.are.doing.regarding.the.Christian.faith!..Their.weapons.given.are.not.
weapons.to.defend.the.Bible.and.proclaim.Christ.risen..their.weapons.given.do.nothing.more.
than.tell.how.some.dead.guy.was.a.good.guy.when.he.was.not.dead..
.
Let's.pretend.that.Branham.was.NOT.a.serial.liar,.false.prophet,.and.false.teacher...Let's.pretend.
that.his.ministry.DID.proclaim.the.coming.Christ,.just.as.John.the.Baptist.did.in.the.days.of.old..
.
John. the. Baptist. proclaimed. that. he. must. DECREASE. so. that. Christ. could. INCREASE!. . The.
messenger.is.not.the.object.of.worship..Christ.is!.
.
If. Branham. were. REALLY. this. person. the. cult. pastors. proclaim,. they. would. not. have. looked.
backwards.for.all.of.these.years.to.some.dead.guy...They.would.have.looked.forward.to.the.Risen.
Guy!..The.One.who.is.coming.to.catch.His.Bride.away!.
.
There.is.absolutely.no.way.to.prepare.the.cult.followers.with.the.armor.that.their.pastors.are.
denying.them.in.one.single.post.of.one.single.day..they.should.be.getting.their.preparation.
every.Sunday.and.Wednesday.over.the.course.of.several.years...In.fact,.I'm.behind.the.game,.
having.sit.in.a."memorial.service.for.a.dead.guy".for.thirty\seven.years.of.my.life..
.
But. compare. their. argument. of. showing. their. congregations. "Bible. discrepancies". with. actual.
Bible.history..history.in.which.they.have.absolutely.no.understanding...Branham.was.just.ONE.

What.if.we.replaced.the.Apostle.Paul.with.William.Branham...What.if."fake.apostle.Branham".
told. the. Thessalonians. that. . he. saw. a. light. in. the. wilderness,. and. that. light. was. Jesus. Christ...
and.then.he.told.the.Colossians.that.the.light.was.not.in.the.wilderness,.but.instead.in.the.
city.of.Rome!.
.
You.see.how.silly.this.is?..Two.men.may.have.two.different.understandings.of.the.stories,.but.the.
same.man.will.not.tell.two.different.stories.of.an.experience.that.is.so.supernatural.that.not.a.
single.person.in.this.WORLD.would.forget!.
.
Compound.that.with.the.history.of.the.scrolls,.which.very.few.pastors.even.understand...Long.
before.pen.and.paper,.long.before.the.scrolls.were.even.normalized.into.one.single.Bible,.scribes.
copied.the.scrolls.by.hand.for.reproduction...With.each.copy,.a.new."family".of.Bible.began,.and.
those.scrolls.were.copied.throughout.history...Some.copies.were.better.than.others,.having.little.
mistakes...
.
A.common.misconception.in.the.cult.of.William.Branham.is.that."God.protected.the.words."..And.
I.use.the.word.misconception.ONLY.because.the.focus.is.in.the.wrong.place:."the.words.".
.
Even.the.King.James.Bible.had.error,.and.the.version.they.now.read.from.behind.their.pulpits.is.
not.the.same.as.the.version.in.1611.when.it.was.originally.produced...
.
God.protected.His.Word,.not.the.human.words.of.language.that.comprised.His.Word...There.is.
enough.evidence.that.the.words.differ.from.family.of.scroll.to.family.of.scroll.that.we.can.be.
assured.every.single.hand.that.touched.the.Bible.was.a.human.hand..
.
And.the.Bible.that.we.read.is.not.written.from.ONE.single.scroll...It's.written.from.multiple.scrolls..
.
This.method.of.handing.down.the.Word.of.God.from.generation.to.generation.was.very.prone.to.
error.. . And. with. all. of. the. families. of. scrolls,. the. only. way. to. gleam. the. authentic. text. is. to.
compare.scrolls.for.common.passages..
.
With.the.progression.of.changing.text.due.to.either.human.error,.changes.in.the.understanding.
of. the. language,. or. devious. minds,. finding. the. authentic. text. became. a. challenge.. . So. "Bible.
cannons".were.formed..
.
The.word.cannon.meant."something.to.be.measured."..Men.spent.weeks,.months,.and.years,.
comparing.the.text.from.each.of.the.families.of.scrolls...If.the.text.was.found.to.be.authentic,.it.
was.included.in.the.Bible.cannon..
.
And.while.many.in.the.cult.do.not.realize.it,.Martin.Luther.attempted.to.remove.the.books.of.
Hebrews,.James,.Jude,.and.Revelation.from.the.cannon...Even.more.amazing.is.that.the.original.
King.James.Version.included.the.Apocrypha..a.set.of.books.containing.Jewish.history.between.
the.death.of.the.last.prophet.and.the.coming.of.Jesus.Christ...Had.those.books.still.been.included.
in.the.King.James.Version,.followers.would.have.quickly.noticed.that.many.of.the.prophecies.

William.Branham.pointed.to.his.own."age".and.his.own."ministry".were.actually.fulfilled.after.the.
death.of.Malachi.and.before.God.sent.His.Son,.Jesus.Christ..
.
Through. the. middle. ages,. the. most. common. Bible. cannon. was. the. Latin. Vulgate.. . For. most.
Western.Christians,.this.was.the.only.Bible.easily.accessible....The.writers.of.this.translation.had.
great. difficulty. in. understanding. the. Hebrew. Masoretic. text.. . The. Hebrew. language. had. no.
vowels..which.made.it.very.prone.to.mistakes...
.
In. the. passage. from. Exodus. in. which. Moses. returns. to. the. people. after. receiving. the.
commandments.for.the.second.time,.the.word."karan".was.mistranslated...Based.on.the.root.
"keren",. which. often. means. horn,. this. word. was. literally. translated. as. "horn".. . We. now.
understand.that.word.to.be.better.translated.as."shining".or."emitting.rays.".
.
It. was. because. of. this. mistake. that. Michelangelo's. statue. of. Moses. that. sits. in. Rome. today.
contains.horns!..Even.back.then,.men.and.women.did.not.question.the.translators.of.scripture.
. and. held. the. words. of. text. literally. as. though. those. words. were. spoken. by. God. into. the.
translators.ear..
.
The. history. of. the. scrolls. can. be. told. for. several. days. or. weeks. before. you. can. have. a. clear.
understanding.of.the.Bible.that.you.hold.in.your.hands.today...And.the.Word.of.God.is.clearly.
inspired. and. protected. by. God.. . God. had. his. hand. in. passing. His. word. from. generation. to.
generation,.down.through.time,.so.that.it.could.be.preserved.for.us.today..
.
As.many."hands.in.the.pot".as.we.have.throughout.history,.it's.easy.to.see.that.if.God.did.not.
protect.His.Word,.we.would.have.nothing.but.a.complete.mess!..And.again,.this.would.have.been.
a. mess. that. was. created. by. misunderstanding. or. misinterpreting. the. Word. of. God. that. was.
handed.down.through.the.ages..
.
This.is.the.EXACT.OPPOSITE.of.Searching.For.Vindication.finding.that.William.Branham.lied.about.
sixteen.men.falling.from.the.Bridge,.lying.about.denying.the.Pentecostal.religion.until.God.smote.
his.wife.and.child.by.the.flood,.or.the.many.other.things.that.have.been.uncovered..
.
You.see,.when.a.new.scroll.is.uncovered,.it.PROOVES.God's.Word...As.common.text.is.found,.it.
authenticates.and."vindicates".what.we.already.know.and.believe.to.be.God's.Truth!.
.
But.as.each.new.detail.is.uncovered.about.William.Branham's.life,.it.only.stacks.up.against.him...
The.more.evidence.that.is.uncovered,.the.more.he.sounds.like.either.a.charlatan.or.a.delusional.
man...
.
And.while.these.types.of.scriptures.speaking.of.the."lawless.one".are.pointed.to.those.who.are.
examining.this.evidence,.we.find.that.they.fit.like.a.glove.when.compared.to.William.Branham's.

But.Branham.twisted.several.scriptures.that.were.supposed.to.point.to.Jesus.Christ...He.pointed.
those.scriptures.to.himself.and.his.own."ministry."..Even.today,.people.will.claim.that.Branham.
is.the.fulfillment.of.Luke.17:30..exalting.Branham.into.the.title."Son.of.Man."..Branham.is.NOT.
the.Son.of.Man,.and.when.the.Son.of.Man.is.revealed.to.us,.He.will.judge.all.who.believe.in.any.
other.son.of.man..
.
Paul.knew.that.this.lawless.one.was.coming,.and.he.warned.the.people:.
.
Do.you.not.remember.that.when.I.was.still.with.you.I.told.you.these.things?..And.you.know.what.
is.restraining.him.now.so.that.he.may.be.revealed.in.his.time...For.the.mystery.of.lawlessness.is.
already.at.work..Only.he.who.now.restrains.it.will.do.so.until.he.is.out.of.the.way...And.then.the.
lawless.one.will.be.revealed,.whom.the.Lord.Jesus.will.kill.with.the.breath.of.his.mouth.and.bring.
to.nothing.by.the.appearance.of.his.coming..
.
Pastors.will.use.crazy.fear.tactics.about.how.members.of.their.cult.churches.left,.and.how.God.
smote.them.to.the.ground...But.why.do.they.forget.that.their.fearless.leader.was.also.smote.to.
the.ground,.in.a.far.worse.disaster?..It's.almost.as.if.God's.breath.blew.that.other.car.into.William.
Branham's.vehicle!.
.
For.years,.the.rumor.was.spread.that.this.accident.was.caused.by.a.drunken.driver...I.urge.any.of.

fact,.if.you.compare.the.stories.given.by.Pearry.Greene,.Billy.Paul,.and.others,.you'll.quickly.notice.
that.NONE.of.them.match!..They.do.not.want.you.to.know.that.this.could.have.been.the.Hand.of.
the.Lord!.
.
The.lawless.ones.are.not.those.who.are.pouring.into.their.Bibles,.examining.history,.and.testing.
the.prophet.as.the.Bible.instructs.us.to.do...Paul.tells.us.that.the.lawless.one.will.come.with.signs.
and.wonders..and.I.can.assure.you.that.none.of.us.have.any.signs.or.wonders...We'd.like.to.
take.Branham.up.on.his.offer.to.place.that.sign.on.his.back,.but.that.is.a.different.kind.of.sign.and.
none.of.us.are.willing.to.go.near.his.rotting.corpse..
.
Listen.to.this.next.part.by.Paul,.and.compare.which.sounds.more.likely:..those.who.are.pouring.
into.their.Bibles,.or.that.guy.who.lied.about.God.speaking.through.the.heavens.in.front.of.ten.
thousand.people.and.five.hundred.to.be.baptized..
.
The. coming. of. the. lawless. one. is. by. the. activity. of. Satan. with. all. power. and. false. signs. and.
wonders,.and.with.all.wicked.deception.for.those.who.are.perishing,.because.they.refused.to.
love.the.truth.and.so.be.saved...Therefore.God.sends.them.a.strong.delusion,.so.that.they.may.
believe.what.is.false,.in.order.that.all.may.be.condemned.who.did.not.believe.the.truth.but.had.
pleasure.in.unrighteousness..
.
Notice.that.last.part?..Because.they.refused.to.love.truth,.God.sends.them.a.strong.delusion!.
.
Why.else.can.you.show.the.entire.logbook.from.the.coast.guard,.emphatic.proof.that.William.
Branham's. prophecy. of. the. Clark. Memorial. Bridge. was. a. false. sign,. and. they. are. unwilling. to.
listen?. . They. are. unwilling. to. believe. in. the. truth!. . Paul. says. that. this. is. pleasure. in.
unrighteousness!..
.
Don't.be.that.person.taken.captive.by.the.arguments.of.the.cult.pastors,.claiming.the.Word.of.
God.to.be.false.and.filled.with.error...It.has.nothing.to.do.with.a.man.who.lied.to.us!..There.are.
hundreds. of. books. and. websites. you. can. read,. written. by. REAL. Christians,. who. examine. and.
study.the.Word.of.God,.and.try.to.help.you.understand.how.and.why.the.translation.you.use.may.
raise.questions..
.
But.unlike.these.cult.pastors,.they.also.give.the.answers.to.the.questions...You.will.quickly.find.
that.the.sermons.by.the.cult.pastors.give.no.answers...Why?..If.they.give.answers.to.the.Bible.
questions,.then.they.must.also.give.answers.to.the.Branham.questions..
.
And.they.know.that.cannot.be.accomplished..

Such.is.the.way.of.those.that.Branham."granted".salvation.to..Side\stepping.Calvary,.given.free.
"tickets.to.heaven.".
.
This.is.one.such.story:.
.
Jim.Ed.Daulton.
.
Born:.October.7,.1938.Location:.Flagstaff,.Arizona.The.eldest.son.of.a.father.who.was.the.desire.
of.his.heart.given..Predecessor.of.the.'Flagstaff.Tabernacle..
.
In.1960.father.went.through.the.line.and.Brother.Branham.asked.him.what.he.needed,.he.said.
to. him.. "The. salvation. of. my. family,". Brother. Branham. said,. "Do. you. believe. this. Brother.
Daulton?".Father.replied,."Sure.I.do.."Brother.Branham.looked.at.my.father.with.those.piercing.
eyes.(I.believe.that.whoever.looked.at.the.eyes.of.the.prophet.could.know.that.he.was.a.man.of.
God).and.he.said:".I.give.them.to.you.in.the.name.of.our.Lord.Jesus.Christ."Several.days.later,.as.
a.father.Brother.Branham.met,.he.said.to.him.".When.you.came.to.me.and.asked.for.your.family,.
I.heard.a.voice.saying,."Give.him.what.he.asks.".For.a.man.with.a.family.of.10.children.(and.two.
more.to.come),.that.was.a.real.promise.Today.we.saw.that.promise.fulfilled,.and.all.children.are.
saved.and.serve.the.Lord..
.
In.1961,.Father.told.us.that.Brother.Branham.Kentucky.would.come.to.go.fishing..Somerset,.We.
were.convinced.that.he.would.come..To.my.father's.house.So.we.went.to.clean.the.house,.we.
painted.it,.and.a.few.days.later.he.came.and.went.fishing.with.dad..Mary.and.I.were.remodeling.
our.house.and.it.was.a.mess,.wallpaper.and.everything..That.particular.day,.I.did.not.come.home.
for.dinner,.but.my.wife.begged.me.and.I.went..When.I.got.there.Brother.Branham.stood.in.the.
front.yard.with.a.rope.with.fish.on.it..He.wanted.someone.who.fish.ready..For.himWe.left.Brother.
Branham.come.in.and.started.to.excuse.our.mess.for.us.With.a.grin,.he.told.us.that.it.will.be.

when. the. Lord. comes. when. we. least. expect. Him!. So. Grandmother. Baker,. Mary's. widowed.
mother.was.living.at.that.time.with.us..Brother.Branham.told.her.that.he.hoe.cakes,.fried.fish,.
and.iced.tea.wanted!.
.
I.have.long.wondered.why.he.came.to.our.home,.but.later.I.heard.Brother.Branham.on.tape.
saying.that.God.always.sends.His.prophet.to.the.house.of.the.widow..It.was.probably.because.of.
grandmother.Hattie.Baker,.he.came.to.us.that.day..We.were.so.sure.he.would.go..Fathers.house.
.
Brother. Branham. behaved. among. us. simply. as'. one. of. the. boys.. ". We. once. went. hunting. in.
Colorado,.three.feet.of.snow.(about.1.meter).fell.in.the.camp.and.snowed.us..Brother.Branham.
was.there.with.the.rest.of.us,.snow.shoveling.and.helping.to.make.a.way.out..It.was.truly.an.
experience..To.my.knowledge.this.was.the.only.yacht.of.Brother.Branham.where.sisters.were.
with!.We.took.our.women.to.cook.for.us..We.had.a.tent.for.them.and.a.tent.for.the.men..
.
So.we.were.stuck.for.three.days,.but.that.did.not.care..For.us,.that.was.snow.from.the.Lord,.
because.we.were.all.the.time.there..Brother.Branham.sat.there.and.taught.us.the.Word..There.
he.explained.to.us.how.the.Holy.Spirit.can.receive.and.still.lost.every.day..He.drew.us.how.to.
have.a.place.in.your.heart.for.that.little.serpent.nature,.and.how.the.Holy.Spirit.comes.and.kills..
That.was.before.he.came.to.Prescott..In.1962.we.moved.to.Prescott..There.were.about.20.families.
lived.together.in.a.large.trailer.park,.and.although.things.seemed.peaceful,.under.the.surface.
they.were.not.always.so..In.1964.Brother.Branham.came.to.the.trailer.park.and.he.preached.a.
message.that.is.now.called."The.Queer.'is.(for.us.he.called.the.nut.and.bolt)..So,.after.Brother.
Branham. had. left,. we. bought. chains,. we. took. nuts. and. bolts. and. made. necklaces. for. men,.
because.he.had.said.something.about.us..He.came.to.visit.us.again.in.1965..He.came.in.each.of.
our.homes..We.heard.later.that.he,.if.he.then.came.to.the.park.argued,.with.Leo.Mercier.and.
Gene.Goad..He.tried.to.correct.things..He.was.so.gentle.and.friendly..He.said.Leo,."Peter.tried.
(community.life),.and.it.did.not.work.".Brother.Leo.said,."Brother.Branham,.it.works.".Brother.
Branham.just.said.very.softly:."Leo,.it.will.not.work.".Since.we.knew.in.nothing.about.that.time,.
and.it.took.10.years.before.we.heard.what.he.had.said..But.he.was.right..It.did.not.work..
.
Through.my.dealings.with.Brother.Branham,.I.learned.one.thing,.how.to.be,.without.fighting..
Militant.of.the.Word.of.God.When.Brother.Branham.prayed.for.me.as.a.young.man,.he.asked.the.
Lord.to.make.as.Irenaeus.me..He.prayed.that.he.wanted.to.make..Me.a.peacemaker.I.could.never.
gluing.together..Irenaeus.was.a.militant.for.the.Word.of.God..But.how.could.you.be.a.peacemaker.
and.at.the.same.time.a.militant?.
.
After.I.became.pastor.was.here.in.Flagstaff.Tabernacle,.I.told.one.day.to.the.meeting..I.did.not.
understand. what. Brother. Branham. prayed. over. me,. to. be. a. peacemaker. and. also. to. be. as.
Irenaeus..Militant.A.little.sister.in.the.congregation.said,."Brother.Jim,.just.be.a.peaceful.militant.".
After.all.these.years.I.had.my.answer..Be.a.peaceful.militant.for.the.Word.of.God..Do.not.be.evil..
I.saw.Brother.Branham.did.with.Brother.Leo.and.Brother.Gene,.but.I.could.not.glue.together.
unless.years.later..Brother.Branham.was.a.very.peaceful.person,.and.yet.he.was.a.militant.for.the.
Word.of.God,.and.he.had.a.very.special.way.to.do.it..
.

At.that.time.many.things.happened,.we.thought.it.was.just.a.coincidence.There.was.a.place.we.
like.to.hunt,.she.was.called."Spider.Ranch.".We.went.hunting.for.several.years.in.that.position..
We.could.there.really.move.freely..At.certain.times.of.the.year,.we.even.knew.the.position.of.the.
stars..Once.we.were.there.to.hunt.with.Brother.Branham,.we.noticed.a.very.bright.light.in.the.
sky..We.knew.it.was.not.a.star,.but.we.really.did.not.know.what.it.could.be..Pa.Brother.Branham.
asked:."What.is.that.light.the.camp?".Brother.Branham.said,."Brother.Ed,.I.can.not.say.for.sure,.
but.I.want.you.to.know.that.he.is.never.far.from.where.I.am.".
.
Brother.Branham.really.had.a.sense.of.humor.and.he.loved.to.tell.jokes..I.remember.one.day.
when.we.were.hunting..We.drove.in.our.old.truck,.about.two.miles.on.the.roughest.road.you.
could.ever.ride..The.whole.time.he.told.us.jokes.so.we.double.rolled.with.laughter..Later.he.said:.
"You.know,.God.loves.humor,.but.he.hates.dirty.talk.".
.
When.we.had.another.time.out.there,.one.of.our.trucks.overheated..We.pulled.the.hunting.camp.
to.find.water..Brother.Branham.stepped.out.with.the.rest.of.us,.and.the.man.who.came.to.ask.us.
what.we.needed,.swore.like.a.blue.lightning..The.terrible.words.I.ever.heard.in.my.life..He.was.
not.mad.at.us,.but.it.was.just.his.way.of.talking..We.did.not.know.what.to.say..Brother.Branham.
stood.there.and.just.looked.around..Then.he.said,."Son,.the.Lord.God.in.Arizona.certainly.thrown.
a.lot.of.rocks.here,.is.not.it?".And.after.he.Lord's.name.mentioned,.said.that.man.no.curse.more.
out.the.entire.time.we.were.there..I.learned.a.great.lesson.that.day,.how.you.could.stay.polite,.
and.yet.could.bring..The.presence.of.God.Or.how.you.could.make.His.Presence..Anyone.aware.
of.a.few.common.words.He.made.that.man.conscious.of.God,.and.he.stopped.swearing..
.
I.knew.Brother.Branham.for.six.years,.and.that.was.one.of.the.greatest.experiences.of.my.life..I.
saw.him.under.inspiration,.my.dreams.were.interpreted.by.him..I.went.hunting.with.him.as.an.
ordinary.human.being.Every.time,.when.I.was.with.him,.I.felt.that.I.could.get.what.circumstances..
Among.the.equal.
.
When.Brother.Branham.to.be.always.left.me.feeling.that.I.was.more.in.love.with.Jesus.Christ,.
more.than.ever.before..

ExtraSBiblical$Details$
.
I.recently.watched.a.series.on.the.History.Channel.called."The.Bible."..It.was.a.phenomenal.set.
of.videos,.walking.you.through.the.history.of.the.Bible.as.it.told.a.story..
.
I.was.very.shocked.in.a.few.places...Having.grown.up.in.the.cult.of.William.Branham,.and.having.
been.taught.so.many.extra\biblical.stories,.it.was.a.real.eye.opener.as.to.just.how.different.the.
Bible.is.from.the.inventions.of.a.man...
.
Though.few.will.admit.it,.there.are.several.common.themes.that.were.present.in.the.underlying.
agenda. of. William. Branham's. ministry.. . Stories. were. changed. to. elevate. the. status. of. the.
prophets. rather. than. the. God. that. spoke. through. them.. . Some. men,. though. not. once. in. the.
scriptures.ever.speaking.the.Voice.of.the.Lord.as.a.prophet,.were.raised.up.into."prophet.status".
in.the.extra\biblical.teachings...Women.were.lessor.in.status,.almost.inconsequential.to.the.Bible.
stories...The.hidden.agenda.goes.on.and.on..
.
.
I.often.found.myself.opening.my.Bible.to.see.for.myself.as.I.watched.the.series...There.were.many.
things.in.the.story.that.I.never.knew..and.I.thought.that."Hollywood".had.taken.liberty.with.the.
video...But.after.comparing.it.to.the.Bible,.I.found.in.almost.every.case.that.no.liberties.were.
taken..I.had.just.never.been.taught.the.things.that.other.Christians.knew.and.took.for.granted..
.
There.were.times.I.would.say.to.myself,."Why.didn't.they.tell.this.part,.or.that?"..It.seemed.to.
me.that.there.were.portions.missing.from.the.video.that.were.critical.in.getting.the.Bible.story.
out.to.the.people...But.in.many.instances,.I.found.that.the.extra.parts.of.the.story.simply.were.
not.found.in.scripture...
.
As.a.former.cult.follower,.it.was.almost.offensive.the.way.that.the.women.were.presented.in.the.
story...Women.avoided.their.household.chores.to.follow.Jesus,.learning.how.to.teach.others...We.
were.so.engrained.with.the.false.idea.that.women.should.not.teach,.and.how.the.men.are.to.be.
higher. ranking. because. of. the. constant. belittling. of. Branham. saying,. "Women. are. the.
BIPRODUCT!".
.
But. as. I. read. through. the. scriptures. while. watching. the. video,. I. quickly. realized. that. women.
played.a.very.strong.of.a.role.in.the.story.of.the.Bible...The.women.DID.leave.their.chores.to.
follow.Jesus.and.learn.as.he.taught..which.was.not.only.against.the.cult.theology,.but.also.
against.the.Jewish.culture.for.the.time.that.Jesus.walked.the.earth...In.fact,.it.would.have.been.
revolutionary.to.have.sent.both.men.and.women.into.the.cities.to.spread.the.Gospel..most.of.
the.Pharisees.would.have.openly.condemned.these."biproducts.".
.
The.story.that.really.caught.my.eye.regarding.the.discrimination.and.condemnation.of.women.in.
the.cult.was.the.story.of.Abraham.and.Sarah...
.

www.seekyethetruth.com.

80.

In.the.cult,.Sarah.was.practically.ridiculed...But.in.the.video.from.the.History.Channel,.she.was.
the.mother.of.the.royal.seed.of.Abraham...Abraham.loved.her,.and.she.was.his.partner..not.his.
slave...She.was.devastated.when.she.could.not.bear.a.son.for.Abraham..
.
In.the.story.given.by.the.cult,.God.came.down.in.human.flesh.to.speak.to.Abraham..which.was.
very. similar. to. the. video.. . But. in. the. cult,. when. the. Lord. and. the. angels. were. speaking. to.
Abraham,.Sarah.was.frowned.upon.like.she.was.some.slave.told.to.wait.in.the.tent.alone...In.fact,.
because.she.laughed.within.herself,.she.was.almost.condemned.to.DIE.according.to.Branham!.
.
The.Messenger,.and.He.said,."Abraham,.where.is.your.wife.(S\a\r\a\h).Sarah?".How'd.He.know.
it?.How.did.He.know.it?..Abraham.said,."She's.in.the.tent.behind.You."..He.said,."I'm.going.to.visit.
you.according.to.the.time.that.I.promised.you..I'm.going.to.visit.you.".And.Sarah.kind.of.laughed.
to.herself..
.
65\1206..MODERN.EVENTS.ARE.MADE.CLEAR.BY.PROPHECY..
.
Notice.this.next.part...Branham.makes.a.clear.point.to.position.the.Lord.in\between.Sarah.and.
the.tent...This,.friends,.is.what.we.call."extra\biblical."..
.
In.the.video.of.the.Bible,.the.men.approached.Abraham,.as.men.NORMALLY.would.do...They.did.
not. inject. themselves. between. Abraham. and. his. wife,. Sarah.. . Why. does. Branham. go. to. such.
extremes.to.make.sure.the.back.was.turned.to.Sarah?..She.didn't.even.have.a.prayer.card.for.the.
Lord.to.guess.her.name!..And.the.address.was.pretty.clear..she.was.in.that.tent,.right.behind.
Abraham!.
.
With.His.back.to.the.tent,.and.He.said,."Why.did.Sarah.laugh,.saying,.'How.can.these.things.be?'".
If.she.hadn't.been.in.Abraham,.his.bride.at.that.time,.God.would.have.slayed.her..So.would.we.
today.with.all.of.our.unbelief,.if.we.wasn't.in.Christ..That.holds.us.right.there,.see..He.couldn't.
hurt.or.couldn't.take.Sarah.without.hurting.Abraham..See?.
.
65\1206..MODERN.EVENTS.ARE.MADE.CLEAR.BY.PROPHECY.
.
Do.you.feel.the.oppression.of.women.in.this?..It.is.slithering.out.of.his.words,.despising.Sarah.for.
laughing...
.
And.the.loving.God.that.was.in.the.video,.the.God.who.loved.Abraham.in.the.Bible,.was.now.a.
God.of.wrath!..Who.cares.about.Sarah..but.Abraham.had.POWER!..He.was.a.PROPHET!..God.
spared.her.so.that.he.did.not.offend.His.PROPHET!.
.
And.did.you.notice.that.Branham.called.Abraham.a.prophet.all.throughout.his.ministry,.just.like.
the.Islamic.religion?..In.the.Christian.Bible,.Abraham.was.the.Father.of.Nations,.and.he.was.on.
earth.BEFORE.the.prophets..
.

81.

Abraham.did.see.a.vision,.and.God.gave.him.the.vision...He.had.A.prophecy,.but.Branham.tried.
to.increase.the.respect.for.the.men.called."prophets".because.he.promoted.himself.as.one...
.
Luke.16.makes.a.clear.distinction.between.Abraham.and.the.prophets.that.spoke.with.the.Voice.
of. God. to. turn. the. Children. of. Israel. from. their. idolatry. in. the. Old. Testament.. . And. it. comes.
directly.from.Abraham!.
.
"But.Abraham.said,.'They.have.Moses.and.the.Prophets;.let.them.hear.them.'"..\Luke.16:29.
.
Even.the.Jews.made.this.distinction,.and.it's.in.the.book.of.John:.
.
The.Jews.said.to.him,."Now.we.know.that.you.have.a.demon!.Abraham.died,.as.did.the.prophets,.
yet.you.say,.'If.anyone.keeps.my.word,.he.will.never.taste.death.'..\John.8:52.
.
But.the.story.told.by.the.History.Channel..which.seems.to.line.up.with.scripture.MORE.than.
Branham's.story.of.the.slave.woman.Sarah.who.almost.got.herself.smote.dead..was.that.the.
loving.God.who.loved.Abraham.ALSO.loved.Sarah!..
.
God.knew.that.Sarah.was.old...He.knew.that.Sarah.could.not.understand.how.she.could.bear.a.
son.being.long.past.the.days.of.childbirth...God.was.not.going.to.smite.her.to.the.ground.for.not.
understanding.or.for.lack.of.faith!..God.BUILT.UP.her.faith!.
.
You. see,. as. with. most. cults,. that. is. the. common. theme:. condemnation. if. you. have. trouble.
believing...And.not.believing.in.God,.or.Christ,.but.believing.in.the.extra\biblical.stories,.or.the.
failed.prophecies,.or.the.life.stories.that.you.absolutely.know.in.your.heart.to.be.false...
.
God.wants.you.to.believe.in.ONE.thing:..that.Jesus.Christ.is.the.Son.of.God,.sent.down.to.earth.
to.save.each.one.of.us.from.our.sin,.and.so.He.lived.the.perfect.life,.died.on.the.cross.for.our.
salvation,.and.rose.again.so.that.we.can.rise.with.him...
.
There.were.likely.people.who.did.not.believe.John.the.Baptist...But.John.couldn't.save.them..
JESUS.could...There.were.people.who.did.not.believe.the.words.of.Paul.and.Silas...So.they.checked.
them.out.for.themselves!..As.they.were.teaching.in.the.synagogue,.these.Jews.examined.the.
scriptures...After.finding.the.words.to.be.true,.they.believed.in.Christ!..God.didn't.strike.them.to.
the.ground.for.not.believing.Paul..who.cares.about.the.man!..It.is.the.GOD.that.we.are.to.serve!..
Faith.in.Jesus.Christ!.
.
In.fact,.the.Bible.calls.these.people."noble".for.examining.the.information.for.themselves!.
.
The.brothers.immediately.sent.Paul.and.Silas.away.by.night.to.Berea,.and.when.they.arrived.they.
went.into.the.Jewish.synagogue...Now.these.Jews.were.more.noble.than.those.in.Thessalonica;.
they.received.the.word.with.all.eagerness,.examining.the.Scriptures.daily.to.see.if.these.things.
were.so...\Acts.17.

But.religious.cults.do.not.want.you.to.question...They.feel.very.threatened.if.you.do.question,.
because.the.elders.KNOW.the.problems.with.the.teaching...They.KNOW.that.Sarah.was.not.off.
in.some.corner.while."THE.MEN".were.outside.discussing.HER.FATE.without.her.consent!..They.
KNOW.that.God.does.not.treat.women.as.unfairly.as.the.cults.do!.
.
Listen.to.the.REAL.story.of.Abraham's.wife.Sarah.inside.the.tent.while.Abraham.is.speaking.to.
the.Lord...It.is.found.in.Genesis.18:.
.
They.said.to.him,."Where.is.Sarah.your.wife?".And.he.said,."She.is.in.the.tent."..The.Lord.said,."I.
will.surely.return.to.you.about.this.time.next.year,.and.Sarah.your.wife.shall.have.a.son.".And.
Sarah.was.listening.at.the.tent.door.behind.him...
.
Now.this.is.the.part.where.a.cult.will.practically.STOP,.and.invent.the.rest.of.the.story...Clear.
separation.of.gender.here..Sarah.in.the.tent,.the.men.outside...Only.you'll.notice,.she.was.at.
the.door.of.the.tent!..Not.hidden.in.some.corner!.
.
In.fact,.the.Bible.goes.further.to.EXPLAIN.why.Sarah.laughed..before.she.even.does.it:.
.
Now.Abraham.and.Sarah.were.old,.advanced.in.years..The.way.of.women.had.ceased.to.be.with.
Sarah...So.Sarah.laughed.to.herself,.saying,."After.I.am.worn.out,.and.my.lord.is.old,.shall.I.have.
pleasure?".
.
Tell.me..if.you.were.to.go.find.some.elderly.woman.with.a.stooped.back.and.a.walker,.and.tell.
her.that.you.were.going.to.make.passionate.love.to.her,.don't.you.think.she.would.find.it.the.
slightest.bit.humorous?.."Not.with.ME,.sonny.boy!..My.false.teeth.might.fall.out!".
.
You.see,.in.the.eyes.of.man.[and.women],.this.is.impossible...Abraham.and.Sarah.no.doubt.had.
some.difficulty.with.this..it's.hard.to.have.faith.when.every.sign.tells.you.differently..
.
But.unlike.the.cult..God.does.not.let.you.run.on.blind.faith...He.doesn't.ask.you.to.believe.
something.without.GIVING.you.the.faith.to.believe!..He.doesn't.ask.you.to.believe.wild.stories.
about.things.that.are.completely.proven.false.in.the.PAST..he.asks.you.to.believe.things.that.
ARE.going.to.happen.in.the.future!..And.he.gives.you.everything.you.need.to.keep.the.faith!.
.
Why.do.you.think.He.was.there.talking.to.Abraham.and.Sarah?..The.cult.would.have.said,."Well,.
they. didn't. believe!. . They. lost. the. faith,. so. he. slept. with. that. mistress. Hagar!. . Let's. ex\
communicate.him.before.that.unbelief.disease.spreads!".
.
God.doesn't.work.like.this...He.was.there.to.boost.the.faith...He.already.had.a.son.by.Hagar,.
Ishmael..their.faith.was.diminishing.quickly...God.was.there.to.lift.it.back.up..
.
Here's.the.one.line.of.the.story.that.you.will.hear.in.the.cult.while."THE.MEN".are.outside.talking:.
.

www.seekyethetruth.com.

83.

The.Lord.said.to.Abraham,."Why.did.Sarah.laugh.and.say,.'Shall.I.indeed.bear.a.child,.now.that.I.
am.old?'..
.
But.remember,.Sarah.is.in.the.DOORWAY.to.the.tent...She's.standing.behind.Abraham...God.IS.
speaking.to.Abraham..but.He.is.ALSO.speaking.to.Sarah!.
.
Notice. the. shift. in. conversation.. . It. quickly. changes. from. the. gender. inequality. of. the. cult.
doctrine...It.changes.from.a.conversation.between."THE.MEN,".into.a.conversation.with."God's.
Children."..
.
Is.anything.too.hard.for.the.Lord?.At.the.appointed.time.I.will.return.to.you,.about.this.time.next.
year,.and.Sarah.shall.have.a.son.".But.Sarah.denied.it,.saying,."I.did.not.laugh,".for.she.was.afraid..
He.said,."No,.but.you.did.laugh.".
.
Notice.that.last.sentence:.."He.[The.Lord].said,.'No,.but.you.did.laugh'".
.
Who.was.He.[The.Lord].speaking.to?..Are.you.going.to.believe.the.oppressive.cult,.that.God.was.
ONLY.speaking.to.Abraham.while.Sarah.was.hiding.in.some.corner.of.the.tent?..
.
Or.are.you.going.to.believe.the.Bible,.straight.out.of.Genesis.18,.where.Sarah.was.standing.behind.
Abraham.in.the.doorway.as.the.Lord.stood.there.conversing.with.them?.
.
We.do.not.serve.a.God.who.is.not.understanding...We.serve.a.God.full.of.compassion...We.serve.
a.God.who.knows.that.we.face.trials,.a.God.who.knows.that.we.will.have.doubts,.a.God.who.
knows.that.we.will.sin.from.day.to.day...We.serve.a.God.who.loves.us,.who.provides.for.us,.and.
who.gives.us.just.what.we.need.so.that.we.keep.the.faith...
.
We.do.not.serve.a.God.who."turns.us.over.to.Satan".for.questioning..like.the.Branham.cult.has.
done.in.so.many.churches.around.the.world...Questions.mean.that.you.are.paying.attention...
Questions.mean.that.you.are.concerned.for.your.salvation,.that.you.want.to.make.sure.that.you.
are.walking.according.to.His.perfect.will...
.
Questions.are.what.brings.answers...But.only.if.there.are.answers.to.be.given...
.
In.Abraham.and.Sarah's.case,.the.answer.WAS.given...Sarah.DID.bring.forth.another.child,.even.
though.both.she.and.Abraham.were.filled.with.doubt...God.came.to.boost.their.faith,.to.tell.them.
of.the.coming.son,.and.give.them.the.answer.that.proved.God.is.real...
.
So.many.are.fleeing.the.cult,.our.website.traffic.is.increasing.daily.with.questions,.comments,.and.
new.faces.who.are.seeking.answers...
.
Jesus.is.the.ONLY.answer...There.is.no.answer.that.can.be.given.for.a.failed.prophecy..that.
prophecy.is.already.in.the.past...Jesus.is.in.the.future,.and.He.is.coming.to.take.us.with.Him...Look.
forward.to.the.Answer,.not.backward.to.the.question.that.has.no.answer!.

To$Whom$Shall$We$Go?$
.
We.are.receiving.phone.calls,.emails,.contact.submission.from.the.website,.and.private.messages.
daily. from. those. that. are. fleeing. the. cult. of. William. Branham.. . It. is. a. brave. new. step,. one.
deserving.of.the.thoughts.and.prayers.of.all.who.have.been.set.free..
.
And. new. apologetics. sites. are. launching.. . Just. last. night,. we. received. notification. that. a. new.
Branham. cult. apologetics. site. was. launching. in. Romania. (http://www.mesajul.blogspot.com)...
Many.are.starting.to.realize.that.not.only.were.they.following.a.false.prophet,.they.were.tricked.
into.false.teaching..
.
One.statement.found.on.the.site.made.a.very.strong.point...As.one.person.realized.they.were.
deceived,.it.sent.them.into.a.state.of.shock.with.physical.effects...Difficulty.eating,.head.aching,.
and.extreme.stress.because.of.the.sudden.realization.that.the.man.they.once.thought.to.be.a.
humble,.gentle.servant.was.a.wolf.in.sheep's.clothing..
.
The.astounding.point.was.that.they.realized.that.they.had.received.Branham.into.their.hearts.
INSTEAD.of.the.Lord.Jesus.Christ...If.they.had.received.Christ.into.their.hearts,.this.would.have.
not.bothered.them.so.badly..their.focus.was.in.the.wrong.place!.
.
With.each.new.person.that.makes.an.exit.from.this.cult.of.bondage,.the.same.question.is.asked:..
"Where.do.we.go.from.here?".
.
This.reminds.me.of.the.words.spoken.by.Simon.Peter.in.the.Bible:.
.
"Simon.Peter.answered.him,."Lord,.to.whom.shall.we.go?.You.have.the.words.of.eternal.life".\\.
John.6:68.
.
You.see,.we.were.taught.that.something.ELSE.was.the."Voice.of.God,".and.that.the.Bible.now.
had.an.additional."Spoken.Word."..And.it.was.not.the.Voice.of.God.from.the.Bible,.it.was.the.
voice.of.a.man.who.SOUNDED.like.a.soothing,.gentle.peacemaker.in.the.beginning,.but.showed.
his.true.colors.towards.the.end.of.his.life..
.
Having. been. taught. that. this. set. of. sermons. filled. with. a. man. giving. fictional. stories. about.
himself,.false.prophecy,.and.false.teaching.are.the."New.Voice.of.God,".it.makes.the.question.
more.difficult...To.whom.SHALL.we.go?.
.
To.make.matters.worse,.many.of.the.angry.cult.members.who.sit.watching.each.forum.post.and.
social.thread.confuse.the.matter...Their.argument.is.that."if.William.Branham.was.not.the.'Elijah'.
for.this.day,.then.WHO.is?"..and.then.they.continue.to.fill.the.thread.with.the.mistakes.of.
fallen.soldiers.in.who.once.spread.the.Gospel..
.

www.seekyethetruth.com.

85.

In.fact,.we.had.one.gentleman.on.our.forum.(assuming.it.was.a.man),.who.started.filling.the.
forum.with.post.after.post.after.post.of.men.and.women.of.the.new."Health.and.Wealth.Gospel".
variety. who. were. still. preaching. while. filled. with. sin.. . They. didn't. even. realize. that. Branham.
himself.was.a.founding.father.to.this.movement!..
.
Others,.who.are.unwilling.to.study.the.scriptures.or.the.many.in.the.line.of."Malachi.4.Prophets,".
use.the.argument.that.they.are.expecting.a.new."Elijah."..And.William.Branham.is.the.only.man.
they.can.find.still.alive.who.claimed.to.be.this.new."Elijah.".
.
.
It.doesn't.take.much.to.see.that.William.Branham.was.just.one.of.the.branches.that.bore.this.
"Elijah.fruit."..The.man.Branham,.F..F..Bosworth,.and.many.of.Branham's.associates.respected.
was.also.believed.to.be.a."Malachi.4.Prophet,".John.Alexander.Dowie...William.Sowders,.who.
Branham.seemed.to.have.copied.his."Baptismal.Commission.Story".from,.was.another.Malachi.4.
prophet..
.
One.man.took.a.single.verse.from.Matthew.17..the.cult's.programmed.response..where.Jesus.
said,."Elijah.DOES.come,.and.he.will.restore.all.things.".
.
But.they.didn't.even.read.the.rest.of.the.paragraph!..
.
But. I. tell. you. that. Elijah. has. already. come,. and. they. did. not. recognize. him,. but. did. to. him.
whatever.they.pleased..So.also.the.Son.of.Man.will.certainly.suffer.at.their.hands."..Then.the.
disciples.understood.that.he.was.speaking.to.them.of.John.the.Baptist..
.
The.Bible.foretold.the.coming.of.Christ..all.down.through.the.prophets...This.was.a.BIG.event,.
one.that.was.announced...John.the.Baptist.WAS.the.last.announcer.for.the.first.coming.of.Christ...
.
But.you.must.add.to.the.scriptures.if.you.try.to.teach.that.there.is.an.announcer.for.the.second.
coming!..Even.Jesus.Himself.says.that.it.will.be.a.sudden.coming.that.will.catch.many.unaware...
If.it.is.going.to.be.a.surprise,.there.cannot.be.an.'announcer!'.
.
But.the.question,."To.Whom.Shall.We.Go,".is.a.difficult.one...The.answer.is.different.for.every.
single.family,.in.every.single.city,.in.every.single.country.around.the.world...And.it.is.not.a.decision.
that.any.of.the.apologetics.websites.can.make.for.you,.this.is.something.that.must.be.received.
through.prayer.and.guidance.by.the.Holy.Spirit..
.
Some.have.felt.led.by.the.Spirit.to.STAY.in.the.Branham.cult..knowing.that.it.is.a.cult.of.false.
teaching...Their.decision,.though.prayer,.was.based.on.a.strong.feeling.of.pain.for.the.people.
trapped.into.the.cult...They.want.to.help.them.to.be.set.free,.and.want.to.work.directly.WITH.the.
people.they.are.trying.to.help..
.
And.this.is.dangerous.grounds...It.reminds.me.of.Sean.Connery.riding.with.Indiana.Jones.into.the.
"lion's.den".of.Nazi.Germany,.when.he.said,."We're.pilgrims.in.an.unholy.land,.Indy!".
www.seekyethetruth.com.

86.

.
I.have.heard.other.apologetics.against.this,.because.they.are.eating.tainted.spiritual.food..but.
I.can't.disagree.with.their.leading.by.the.Spirit...God.will.never.fail.us,.never.let.us.fall.beyond.
reach...
.
In.the.cult,.we.were.afraid.of.outside.spirits...The."spirit.of.question".was.the.greatest.fear..
that.spirit.might.just.drag.you.down.to.HELL!".
.
The.Bible.is.very.clear.that.when.Christ.sent.His.Spirit.to.all.flesh,.we.were.given.power.over.the.
spirits,.and.there.is.no.spirit.that.Christ.has.not.been.given.authority.over..
.
The.same.thing.was.argued.when.Paul.was.preaching.to.the.men.and.women.in.cities.filled.with.
pagan.temple.worship,.and.they.were.even.afraid.to.eat.the.meat.used.in.the.pagan.sacrifice..
unclean.meat.according.to.the.Mosaic.Law.under.the.Old.Covenant..
.
Paul.makes.it.very.easy.for.us.in.Colossians.2:.
.
Let.no.one.pass.judgment.on.you.in.questions.of.food.and.drink,.or.with.regard.to.a.festival.or.a.
new.moon.or.a.Sabbath...These.are.a.shadow.of.the.things.to.come,.but.the.substance.belongs.
to.Christ...Let.no.one.disqualify.you,.insisting.on.asceticism.and.worship.of.angels,.going.on.in.
detail.about.visions,.puffed.up.without.reason.by.his.sensuous.mind.
.
Colossians.2.
.
Just.because.the.cult.is.under.guidance.by.a.sensuous.mind,.a.man.who.without.reason.elevated.
himself.into.authority.under.worship.of."his.angel,".there.is.no.need.to.fear...And.we.cannot.
judge.those.who.feel.led.to.'brave.the.elements'.to.help.extend.a.helping.hand.for.these.people..
.
But.there.are.many.who.are.made.sick.to.their.stomachs.when.hearing.sermon.after.sermon.
after.sermon.by.cult.pastors.now.trying.to.defend.fabricated.stories.that.have.no.defense...Those.
are.the.ones.who.are.asking,."To.whom.shall.we.go?".
.
Especially.the.families.with.children.still.of.an.age.to.be.molded.into.the.men.and.women.that.
they.are.to.become...The.anger.and.hatred.of.outsiders.is.very.damaging.to.a.personality,.and.
the. programming. that. is. being. applied. to. their. minds. is. actually. quite. dangerous. long. term...
Those.families,.for.protection.of.their.children,.are.fleeing..once.they.become.brave.enough.to.
flee..
.
But.before.becoming.brave,.and.before.moving.on,.they.have.to.know.WHERE.they.are.going...
.
For.my.family,.it.was.very.easy...We.knew.that.the.Branham.cult.was.wrong,.and.that.our.children.
were.at.stake...But.we.also.had.the.same.question:."To.whom.shall.we.go?"..
.

www.seekyethetruth.com.

87.

Our.family.was.deeply.involved.with.the.home.school.program.put.together.by.members.of.the.
cult.. . When. it. started,. we. could. feel. the. love. and. respect. that. you. would. expect. from. any.
Christian...But.when.elders.of.the.church..high.ranking.elders..got.involved,.ONLY.those.in.
the.cult.were.welcomed...Some.were.asked.to.leave,.because.they.did.not.believe.in.William.
Branham..even.though.they.were.CHRISTIANS!..Christians.with.enough.respect.that.they.even.
dressed.like.the.cult.so.as.not.to.offend!.
.
We.left.seeds.of.hatred,.but.found.an.alternative...A.local.church.had.put.together.an.outreach.
program. for. children. of. the. city.. . They. freely. allowed. any. child. to. participate. in. a. basketball.
program,.offered.them.a.gymnasium.with.seating.and.accommodation.for.families.who.were.
able.to.let.their.children.play.with.the.children.of.the.church..
.
And.though.it.was.basketball..a.sport.instead.of.preaching..they.were.showing.the.Love.that.
Christ.displayed.to.other.people...Some.of.which.had.never.known.the.Love.of.Christ!.
.
New.faces.started.filling.the.church,.eager.to.hear.more.about.this.Jesus.that.died.for.the.sins.of.
the.world...Through.the.program.intended.for.children,.new.souls.were.led.to.Christ!.
.
For.our.family,.this.was.amazing!..We.had.never.even.SEEN.an.outreach.program.while.in.the.
cult...In.fact,.it.was.quite.the.opposite.."Don't.go.around.those.outsiders,.you'll.'yoke.yourself'.
with.unbelievers!".
.
If.the.early.Christians.had.done.the.same,.there.wouldn't.be.a.single.Christian.church.remaining..
.
The. question,. "To. Whom. Shall. We. Go,". is. easily. answered.. . Go. to. Christ.. . Let. Christ. be. your.
Prophet,.your.Counselor,.your.Pastor,.and.your.Savior...Let.Christ.be.your.everything..
.
The. Holy. Spirit. will. guide. you,. and. protect. you. in. your. decision.. . And. you. can't. make. a. bad.
decision..those.are.called."learning.experiences."..If.the.Spirit.is.offended,.He.will.tell.you.about.
it..
.
My.advice.would.be.to.find.a.healthy.church...
.
A.healthy.church.is.essential,.especially.having.been.programmed.with.teaching.that.is.not.found.
in.scripture...You.need.people.willing.to.show.you.what.the.Bible.says,.and.help.you.to.deprogram.
.which.is.a.very.lengthy.process...
.
To.this.day,.I.still.find.bible.stories.and.scriptures.that.are.not.found.in.the.Bible,.and.others.in.
my.church.are.confused.when.I.make.statements.that.I.later.find.are.extra\biblical...To.counter.
this,.I.find.myself.reading.my.bible.over.and.over.and.over,.trying.to.cleanse.out.the.fiction..
.
You.will.find.many.articles.and.books.on.what.makes.a."healthy.church,".but.you.will.also.find.
that.these.are.for.new.converts.to.Christ..not.people.who.have.been.programmed.to.follow.a.
leader..

.
Religious.cults.have.one.powerful.hand.of.control:.closely.knit.groups.of.people...Normally.this.is.
a.good.thing,.but.in.most.cults,.the.bonds.are.so.close.that.they.become.unhealthy...Minds.start.
to.think.alike,.thoughts.seem.to.become.unified...The."One.mind,.one.Spirit".that.is.referring.to.
Christ.is.changed.to.apply.to.the.individuality.of.personalities...Even.personalities.start.to.match.
over.time,.and.the.people.do.not.even.realize.it.until.they.make.their.exit..
.
First.and.foremost,.a.healthy.church.glorifies.God...You.won't.find.a.pastor.in.a.healthy.church.
going.on.and.on.about.stories.in.his.past.life,.stories.that.lifts.himself.in.respect.for.the.people...
A.healthy.church.pastor.lifts.Christ...God.is.magnified.above.all.others..
.
A.healthy.church.pastor.admits.faults.and.shortcomings...All.men.sin,.and.for.this.reason,.Christ.
was.slain.on.the.cross...Christ.came.to.save.the.sinners,.not.the.saved!..If.you.have.a.pastor.who.
tries.to.convince.you.that.he.is.close.to.perfect,.then.you.have.a.pastor.who.is.filled.with.the.sin.
of.pride...
.
A.healthy.church.pastor.will.ask.himself.before.each.statement:.."Will.this.glorify.God,.or.will.this.
magnify.myself?".
.
A.healthy.sermon.is.one.that.is.based.solely.upon.the.Bible..in.context,.actual.chapters.of.text...
The.new.term.for.this.is."expositional.preaching.".
.
Expositional.preaching.adds.nothing.to.the.scriptures,.and.takes.nothing.away..."This.is.what.the.
Bible.says,.this.is.how.we.live.it,.these.are.some.examples.in.life.where.this.applies,.and.this.is.
what.we.need.to.look.for.in.our.daily.lives."..
.
You.won't.find.any.new.or.extra\biblical.doctrines.in.expositional.preaching...If.it.is.not.in.the.
Bible,.don't.touch.it!.
.
A.healthy.church.promotes.fellowship...You.will.find.many.churches.now.that.split.into.small.
groups.of.people,.and.meet.in.each.other's.houses.like.the.early.church.did.in.the.days.of.the.
book. of. Acts.. . Each. person. helping. one. another. grow. in. faith,. learn. more. about. Christ,. and.
bearing.each.other's.burdens...
.
These.groups.promote.confession.of.sin,.because.prayer.requests.are.no.longer.like.you.find.in.
the.cults:."how.many.have.an.unspoken.request?".
.
Each.person.discusses.their.needs,.big.or.small,.and.all.pray.for.God.to.intervene.in.the.lives.of.
each.other...Each.person.has.compassion.for.one.another,.and.offers.a.helping.hand.wherever.
possible...
.
A.healthy.church.reaches.out.to.others...The.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ.is.not.a.secret.that.we.can.put.
into.a.bottle.and.hide.in.the.cupboard...It.is.a.Gospel.that.makes.us.YEARN.to.tell.others.about...

have.to...It.is.the.most.wonderful.story.since.the.beginning.of.time!.
.
If.a.church.does.not.reach.out.to.others,.it.stands.a.chance.of.becoming.a.commune...Churches.
that.do.not.grow.must.be.filled.from.the.inside...To.survive,.it.must.place.barriers.against.anyone.
who.attempts.to.leave..
.
Look.at.the.cult.churches.today,.now.that.word.is.spreading.that.Branham.is.a.false.prophet...
They.are.in.big.trouble,.because.they.have.no.outreach.programs!..As.families.are.leaving,.one\
by\one,.this.is.one.more.empty.seat.that.is.not.likely.to.be.filled...And.the.more.empty.seats.
found.in.the.congregation,.the.more.those.remaining.become.unsettled..
.
Most.of.all,.a.healthy.church.is.contagious...Its.members.are.not.embarrassed.to.invite.others,.
and.when.they.do,.others.are.curious.to.see.what.makes.these.people.in.healthy.churches.SO.
happy!.
.
Instead.of.outside.members.saying,."well,.I'm.not.sure..that's.not.in.MY.Bible,".they.are.eager.
to.go.hear.some.good.old\fashioned.preaching.of.the.Gospel!".
.
And.the.Gospel.is.the.fundamental.element...In.my.thirty\seven.years.of.sitting.on.seats.in.those.
hard.pews,.I.can't.honestly.say.that.I.had.ever.heard.WHAT.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ.actually.
was!..I.knew.all.of.the.elements,.but.I.didn't.realize.that.the.GOSPEL.was.the.doctrine.we.should.
be.spreading..not.some.'mystery'.that.was.hidden.from.the.world!.
.
Acts.2:42\47.describe.the.characteristics.of.a.healthy.church:.
.
And.they.devoted.themselves.to.the.apostles'.teaching.and.the.fellowship,.to.the.breaking.of.
bread.and.the.prayers...And.awe.came.upon.every.soul,.and.many.wonders.and.signs.were.being.
done.through.the.apostles...And.all.who.believed.were.together.and.had.all.things.in.common...
And.they.were.selling.their.possessions.and.belongings.and.distributing.the.proceeds.to.all,.as.
any.had.need..And.day.by.day,.attending.the.temple.together.and.breaking.bread.in.their.homes,.
they.received.their.food.with.glad.and.generous.hearts,.praising.God.and.having.favor.with.all.
the.people..And.the.Lord.added.to.their.number.day.by.day.those.who.were.being.saved..
.
If.your.church.is.not.like.this,.and.God.is.not.adding.to.your.number.day.by.day,.then.you.might.
just.have.a.problem...
.
We. will. continue. to. pray. for. everyone. who. is. now. leaving. and. searching. for. a. church. that.
preaches.the.Gospel.instead.of.the.continual.memorial.service.of.a.man..

Racist$Elisha$
.
William. Branham. told. many. Bible. stories. throughout. his. ministry,. many. of. which. were. very.
similar.to.what.we.find.in.our.Bibles,.but.almost.all.of.which.have.been.filled.with.extra\biblical.
details.or.twisted.in.some.way.to.fit.the.underlying.agenda..
.
And.having.been.taught.under.men.who.followed.John.Alexander.Dowie..a.man.who.promoted.
himself.as.the."Elijah.for.the.last.days,".It's.no.wonder.that.the.Bible.story.that.was.twisted.the.
most.was.that.of.Elijah.the.prophet...
.
In.fact,.I.would.be.willing.to.wager.that.not.a.single.person.in.the.cult.who.was.raised.with.the.
teachings.of.William.Branham.could.accurately.describe.the.life.and.times.of.Elijah.the.prophet.
according.to.scripture.without.additional.non\biblical.details.or.events.that.have.been.changed.
into.something.else..
.
Branham.mentioned.the.name.Elijah.over.1,773.times.on.recorded.tape,.almost.like.a.hypnotist.
repeating.a.phrase.over.and.over.and.over.for.his.patients...Had.God.been.promoted.instead.of.
William.Branham.[himself],.this.might.not.have.been.so.bad,.but.to.promote.himself,.the.story.
must.change..
.
The.very.first.time.Branham.mentioned.Elijah,.he.told.the.story.backwards:.
.
Elijah.the.prophet,.they.were.God's.gift..Many.of.them.raised.up.false.prophets..Right.in.the.days.
of.Elijah.there.raised.up.false.prophets,.but.God.testified.of.the.prophecy.of.Elijah..If.it's.of.God,.
God.will.testify.of.it..And.there.was.Elijah,.and.he.was.God's.gift.to.Israel..You.believe.it?.
.
47\0412.FAITH.IS.THE.SUBSTANCE.
.
God. did. not. "testify". of. his. prophets.. . His. prophets. spoke. with. His. Voice.. . And. they. were.
vindicated.through.evidence.that.God's.voice.was.actually.speaking..because.what.God.spoke.
through.his.prophets.came.to.pass...They.were.nothing.more.than.mouthpieces,.men.like.you.
and.I,.who.God.chose.to.speak.through..
.
They.were.not.God's.'gift.to.the.people.'..They.were.God's.VOICE.to.the.people,.and.they.generally.
spoke.of.the.idolatry.that.the.children.of.Israel.had.fallen.into..
.
He.went.on.to.say.that.Elijah.was.Jezebel's."pastor,".an.idea.that.he.promoted.throughout.his.
ministry.so.that.he.could.get.away.with.condemning.women.for.extra\biblical."laws".or.rules,.
such.as.painting.toenails.or.wearing.eye\shadow..
.
Jezebel.was.from.the.city.of.Tyre,.a.city.filled.with.worship.of.Melqart,.a.god.that.would.spread.
into.Rome.and.later.be.known.as.Hercules...Tyre.was.a.port.city.that.had.great.influence.over.the.

ancient.world...As.the.different.pagan.cities.began.commerce,.the."Pillars.of.Melqart".morphed.
into.the."Pillars.of.Herecules.".
.
This.worship.was.of.the.greatest.evil,.and.humans.were.sacrificed.at.the.foot.of.the.pillars.on.the.
Altar.of.Melqart..
.
Coincidentally,.the.eagle.was.included.in.the.worship.of.the."Tyrian.Heracles."..The.eagle.was.the.
bird.of.sacrifice.to.many.gods.in.the.city.of.tyre,.including.Poseidon,.Zeus,.and.more..
.
But.in.Branham's.version.of.Elijah,.the.man."Elijah".was.the.object.of.worship...He.was.not.just.a.
mouthpiece. for. God,. and. he. seemed. to. have. some. sort. of. "Midas. touch.". . One. extra\biblical.
detail.was.the.strange.idea.that.everything.Elijah.touched.became.blessed,.and.Elijah.started.to.
rely.on.that.rather.than.God:.
.
"Just.like.Elijah..He.took.his.staff.and.told.Gehazi,."Go,.lay.it.upon.the.child.".For.he.knew.what.
he.touched.was.blessed.".\47\1221..EXPERIENCES.
.
This.new.addition.to.the.Elijah.story.is.very.strange..and.blatantly.obvious.that.Branham.had.
no.idea.what.was.in.the.scriptures.he.was.referring.to...Gehazi.DID.touch.the.child.with.the.staff,.
but.the.staff.evidently.was.not."blessed,".because.it.had.no.effect.on.the.child..
.
Even.more.to.the.point,.this.was.the.story.of.Elisha..not.the.story.of.Elijah!.
.
Gehazi.went.on.ahead.and.laid.the.staff.on.the.face.of.the.child,.but.there.was.no.sound.or.sign.
of.life..Therefore.he.returned.to.meet.him.and.told.him,."The.child.has.not.awakened.".
.
When.Elisha.came.into.the.house,.he.saw.the.child.lying.dead.on.his.bed...So.he.went.in.and.shut.
the.door.behind.the.two.of.them.and.prayed.to.the.Lord...Then.he.went.up.and.lay.on.the.child,.
putting. his. mouth. on. his. mouth,. his. eyes. on. his. eyes,. and. his. hands. on. his. hands.. And. as. he.
stretched.himself.upon.him,.the.flesh.of.the.child.became.warm...\2.Kings.4.
.
Notice.what.just.happened...The.staff.had.no.power...Elisha.had.no.power...But.Elisha.closed.the.
door.and.prayed.to.the.Lord...The.Lord.was.the.one.with.the.Power!.
.
Notice.after.promoting.Elijah.as.some.sort.of.sorcerer,.Branham.injects.himself.into.this.same.
story...He.even.uses.subliminal.messaging.to.tie.the.story.he.claims.to.have.happen.in.his.own.
life.to.the.story.of.Elisha.in.the.Bible..he.names.his.patient."Elijah,".and.repeats.it.three.times!.
.
The.doctors.knew.he.was.dead..I.went.to.offer.sympathy.to.the.family..And.starting.out.of.the.
house,. the. wife. seemingly. crying. of. the. man.. And. as. I. started. out. the. door,. a. human. hand,.
seemingly,.touched.me.by.the.arm..And.I.felt.it.hold.me..And.as.I.started.forward,.I.could.not.
move..When.I.turned.back,.the.hand.left.me..

.
I.went.to.the.bedside.and.looked.down.upon.the.man..There.was.a.Methodist.minister's.wife.in.
the.room,.and.another.sister..And.I.started.to.have.prayer..When.I.come.to.myself,.I.was.laying.
on.this.man's.body,.the.dead.man,.had.a.sheet.over.his.face.for.at.least.a.half.hour..My.face.was.

Elijah.."Brother.Elijah.".Calling.out.into.the.land.for.his.spirit,.not.knowing.what.I.was.doing....
.
In.a.few.moments,.I.laid.still,.calling..I.felt.that.man's.hand.coming.up.around.my.ears..The.man.

.

.
"Calling.out.into.the.land.for.his.spirit".is.communication.with.the.dead,.which.is.an.abomination.
in.the.eyes.of.the.Lord.according.to.the.Bible..
.
Now.this.may.offend.some,.and.many.might.pose.the.question:."What.if.this.DID.happen?"..
.
But.remember...If.the."spirit.of.Elijah".was.really.in.William.Branham,.that.same."spirit".would.
know.that.Branham's.version.of.Elijah.was.not.scriptural...That.same."spirit".would.be.preaching.
Truth,.not.fiction...because.that."spirit".would.have.been.from.God..
.
Even.the.story.of.Elisha.was.twisted...In.Branham's.version.of.a.'prophet',.the.'prophet'.was.the.
one.in.authority..not.God...The.'prophet'.had.the.power.to.make.God.speak,.instead.of.the.
scriptural.version.of.a.prophet...
.
In.the.Bible,.the.prophets.spoke.because.God.used.them.as.a.mouthpiece...In.the.fictional.stories.
by.Branham,.the.prophets.commanded.God.to.speak!.
.
Like.the.garment.of.Elisha..When.Elijah.dropped.it,.Elisha.picked.up.and.had.a.double.portion..He.
was.a.type.as.a.type.of.the.Church.and.Christ..Christ.was.taken.up..And.the.same.Spirit.that.was.
upon.Christ.is.on.the.Church.tonight,.the.Holy.Ghost..See?."Nevertheless,.if.you.see.me.go.away,".
said.Elijah..And.he.took.the.garment..Now....And.struck.the.Jordan.and.said,."Let.the.God.of.Elijah.

But.all.throughout.his.ministry,.William.Branham.would.give.fictional.stories.about.Elijah.or.Elisha.
. stories. that. seemed. vaguely. similar. to. his. own. actions. . and. then. promote. himself. by.

to.impose.the.message.into.the.minds.of.the.people.that.he.was.the.reincarnation.of.Elijah...But.
why."Without.Repentance?"..What.did.Branham.do.that.needed.repentance?..This.was.before.
the.two.homosexual."tape.boys".started.following.him.around!.

Notice.the.derogatory.term,."typical.Aunt.Jemima."..It's.very.obvious.that.William.Branham.was.
raised.under.the.influence.of.Roy.E..Davis,.Grand.Dragon.for.the.Ku.Klux.Klan...
.
That. was. about. the. most. racist. statement. that. could. have. possibly. been. made. to. an. African.
American..but.then.to.call.her."auntie".was.the.real.slap.in.the.face...If.William.Branham.REALLY.
had.the."spirit.of.Elijah,".he.certainly.would.not.have.been.racist!.
.
But.notice.the.woman's.words...In.another.insulting.way.of.mimicking.her.voice,.He.said,."I's.a.
woman.like.the.Shunammite.woman!"..And.the.woman.was.looking.for."Elijah."..\\not."Elisha!".
.
If.this.fictional.story.by.William.Branham.were.actually.true,.he.would.have.had.the."spirit.of.
Elijah".and.not.been.a.racist.man.influenced.by.the.Klan...He.likely.would.have.never.been.a.part.
of.Davis's.Klan.background.anyway..
.
And.she.seemed.to.have.knowledge.of.the.scriptures..so.the.woman.would.have.said,."Where.
ARE.you,.Elisha?"..\\.not."Elijah."..
.
But.in.William.Branham's.fictional.version.of."Elijah"..or.rather."Elisha,".the.story.was.quite.
different.than.the.Bible...By.1950,.God.was.taken.out.of.the.story.of.the.Shunammite.woman,.
and.the.power.was.in."Elijah".not."Elisha's".hands..

I.was.really.blessed.last.night.to.listen.to.a.man.who.was.not.afraid.to.preach.the.Word..My.heart.
goes.out.to.any.man.in.any.church.who.will.stand.up.for.God.and.take.what.the.Bible.says.over.
anything.that.any.man.says,.and.who.will.teach.others.that.Christ.came.to.save.the.lost.\.not.to.
save.the.saved..
.
I.believe.Pastor.Stone.is.still.in.the."Message.of.the.Hour,".the.denomination.of.faith.that.follows.
the. teaching. of. William. Marrion. Branham.. And. while. I. don't. know. Pastor. Stone. or. what. he.
believes,. I. do. know. that. this. sermon,. "Our. God,". lines. up. with. what. I. read. in. my. Bible.. He's.
reading.the.same.Book.I'm.reading,.and.that.same.Holy.Spirit.will.correct.all.error.and.lead.to.all.
Truth..This.sermon.magnifies.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ..
.
Looking.over.comments.and.photographs.about.his.church,.it.looks.very.different.from.other.
"Message. churches.". I. don't. see. any. pyramids. hanging. on. the. walls,. no. photos. of. "mystery.
clouds,"."halos.to.uplift.a.man,".or.any.other."household.idols.".And.I.find.scripture.after.scripture.
after.scripture.in.his.writing.\.all.things.taken.back.to.the.Word.of.God..
.
One.comment.really.stood.out.to.me,.and.I.think.more.people.that.are.still.following.William.
Branham.should.pay.close.attention.to:.
.
"Friends,. let. us. remember. that. William. Branham. was. human,. and. humans. do. forget,. make.
mistakes.and.have.opinions..Of.course,.when.I.say.that,.the.Branhamites.would.jump.on.me.and.
call.me."an.unbeliever"..(I.am.not.anti\Branham,.I.am.pro\Branham.but.not.a.Branhamite.).The.
Branhamites. hold. to. "every. word". of. the. prophet.. The. majority. of. them. believe. that. Bro..
Branham. did. not. make. any. mistakes. and. that. his. "every. word". was. "Thus. saith. the. Lord"..
Questions. put. to. the. Branhamites. are. usually. never. answered. with. the. backing. of. Scriptures.
because.they.don't.have.the.answer..They.don't.know.the.Bible..And.they.would.either.avoid.the.
questions.or.they.would.(almost.always).say,."Well,.now,.I.am.not.a.prophet..So.I.don't.know..
But.Bro..Branham.said.this...".and.they.would.refer.to.his.sermons.and.quote.his.words.verbatim..
Most. of. the. Branhamite. preachers. themselves. are. unable. to. preach. anything. without. first.
compiling.a.list.of.quotes.from.'The.Spoken.Word'.books.instead.of.the.Scriptures..When.they.
have.no.answers.for.questions.put.to.them.they.would.take.the.opportunity.to.either.scold.you.
for. "questioning. the. prophet". (as. they. put. it). or. justify. themselves. by. saying,. "If. the. prophet.
didn't.preach.it,.then.it's.not.important..We.do.not.need.to.know.".Their.cultic.spirit.and.bad.
attitude.have.caused.not.only.Christians.but.also.non\Christians.alike.to.brand.everyone.who.
believes.in.the.Message.of.William.Branham.as."Branhamites".like.them.".
.
One. part. of. this. sermon. described. the. uncomfortable. situation. that. would. happen. in. most.
"Message. churches". if. a. prostitute. or. a. homosexual. were. to. come. in. and. sit. down. beside.

someone.in.the.congregation..He.hit.the.nail.on.the.head:.they.would.be.quickly.escorted.out.of.
the.building.by.the.deacons!.
.
This.hit.home.with.me..I.can.remember.a.day.at.my.grandfather's.house.when.a.woman.needed.
help.and.was.walking.up.to.the.front.door..But.she.was.wearing.PANTS!.I.don't.remember.the.
exact.comment,.but.the.summary.was.that.since.she.was.not.matching.the.dress.code,.she.was.
not.allowed.into.the.house.to.speak.with.grandpa.\.who.was.supposed.to.be.a.minister.of.the.
Gospel..
.
I.can.remember.similar.events,.some.in.homes,.some.in.churches..I.can.vividly.remember.the.
discouraged.look.on.faces.as.a.new.person.sat.down.to.listen.to.the.sermon,.and.after.having.
holes. burnt. through. the. back. of. her. neck,. she. quickly. made. her. exit. never. to. return. \. simply.
because.she.did.not.know.about.the."dress.code.".
.
Congregations.have.become.so.accustomed.to.tradition.that.they.forget.not.everyone.knows.
about.their."extra.rules.".How.could.they.know.that.a.painted.toenail.would.make.them.seem.
like.the.enemy.\.that.isn't.in.the.Bible!.And.their.modest.pants.that.they.specifically.chose.for.the.
church.service.seemed.modest.to.them!.How.are.they.to.know.that.some.extra\biblical.rules.
were.to.be.followed.before.entering.the.door?.
.
The.problem.is.that.so.many.today.have.forgotten.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ..They.forget.that.
Christ.sat.with.sinners.and.loved.them.the.same.as.we.should.do.ourselves..He.ate.with.the.tax.
collectors.\.people.that.were.so.despised.by.the.Jews.that.they.would.not.even.go.near.them!.
.
I've.asked.several.in.the."Message.churches".that.have.been.in.our.forums."What.do.you.think.
the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ.is.".One.person.was.even.in.my.home.when.I.asked.the.question,.and.
had.no.clue..
.
The.most.common.answer.is.that.it.is."power".or.it.is."the.bible.".Some.will.say,."well.the.Gospel.
is.the.books.in.the.bible.that.have.that.in.the.title!".yet.they.don't.know.the.summary.behind.
what.is.written.in.those.books,.because.they.have.listened.to.sermons.over.and.over.that."take.
this.little.verse.as.my.context.".
.
The.introduction.to.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ.that.is.found.in.the.Gospel.according.to.John.has.
some.very.profound.statements,.statements.that.as.Christians.we.should.know.and.understand..
In.today's.English,.there.are.four.paragraphs,.each.having.a.very.important.topic.that.brings.you.
to.the.conclusion.that.Jesus.Christ.is.the.Son.of.the.Living.God..
.
It.reads.like.this:.
.
In.the.beginning.was.the.Word,.and.the.Word.was.with.God,.and.the.Word.was.God..He.was.in.
the.beginning.with.God..All.things.were.made.through.him,.and.without.him.was.not.any.thing.
made.that.was.made..In.him.was.life,.and.the.life.was.the.light.of.men..The.light.shines.in.the.
darkness,.and.the.darkness.has.not.overcome.it..

.
Though.some.churches.have.now.forgotten.this.passage,.it.is.highly.important..In.the.beginning,.
all.we.HAD.was.the.Word.of.God..The.Word.was.not.just.the.Absolute,.the.Word.was.Everything!.
.
And. many. have. overlooked. that. second. sentence:. "He. was. in. the. beginning. with. God.". This,.
remember,.is.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ,.and.this.is.the.introduction.to.Christ.Himself..He.was.in.
the.beginning.with.God,.and.all.things.were.made.through.Christ..Christ.was.the.Creator..
.
Next,.we.have.a.messenger:.
.
There.was.a.man.sent.from.God,.whose.name.was.John..He.came.as.a.witness,.to.bear.witness.
about.the.light,.that.all.might.believe.through.him..He.was.not.the.light,.but.came.to.bear.witness.
about.the.light..
.
Even.the.messenger,.the.spirit.of.Elijah.the.prophet.in.the.man,.was.just.that:.a.man..In.other.
words,.do.not.worship.the.man..Do.not.worship.the."God.in.the.man".in.JUST.THAT.MAN,.worship.
the.God.that.IS.the.Word..
.
The.true.light,.which.gives.light.to.everyone,.was.coming.into.the.world..He.was.in.the.world,.and.
the.world.was.made.through.him,.yet.the.world.did.not.know.him..He.came.to.his.own,.and.his.
own.people.did.not.receive.him..But.to.all.who.did.receive.him,.who.believed.in.his.name,.he.
gave.the.right.to.become.children.of.God,.who.were.born,.not.of.blood.nor.of.the.will.of.the.flesh.
nor.of.the.will.of.man,.but.of.God..
.
This.paragraph,.though.mostly.about.US.is.just.as.important..All.who.believed.in.His.Name.were.
given.the.right.to.become.the.children.of.God..ALL.who.believed..
.
And.this.confirms.the.path.to.salvation.given.by.the.apostle.Paul..Not.by.will.of.the.flesh.NOR.the.
will.of.man.\.we.can.only.be.saved.because.God.has.been.graceful.enough.to.allow.us.salvation.
by.simply.believing.in.His.Son,.Jesus.Christ..
.
And.the.Word.became.flesh.and.dwelt.among.us,.and.we.have.seen.his.glory,.glory.as.of.the.only.
Son.from.the.Father,.full.of.grace.and.truth..(John.bore.witness.about.him,.and.cried.out,."This.
was.he.of.whom.I.said,.'He.who.comes.after.me.ranks.before.me,.because.he.was.before.me.'").
For. from. his. fullness. we. have. all. received,. grace. upon. grace.. For. the. law. was. given. through.
Moses;.grace.and.truth.came.through.Jesus.Christ..No.one.has.ever.seen.God;.the.only.God,.who.
is.at.the.Father's.side,.he.has.made.him.known..
.
And.this.last.paragraph.of.the.section.reminds.us.that.Jesus.Christ.was.the.Word.made.manifest..
That.same.Word.that.was.back.there.in.the.beginning.was.now.given.skin.and.bones.to.walk.
among.the.sinners.who.needed.a.Savior.such.as.you.and.I..

This.is.just.the.introduction,.remember,.and.there.is.much.more.to.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ..
The.book.goes.on.to.tell.how.He.lived.the.perfect.life,.suffered.for.our.sins,.nailed.our.sins.to.the.
cross,.and.died.so.that.we.do.not.have.to..
.
But.the.key.element.that.gives.us.hope,.as.Christians,.is.that.He.did.not.stay.dead..Christ.rose.
again,.so.that.we.can.rise.again.with.Him..
.
And.He.is.not.gone.from.us.\.God.keeps.his.promises..Christ.promised.that.he.would.send.His.
Helper,.the.Holy.Spirit,.to.be.with.us.and.lead.us.and.guide.us.in.all.Truth..And.that.Truth.is.found.
in.His.Word..
.
Why?.
.
Because.that.Word,.that.book.that.you.hold.in.your.hands.with.those.leather.bindings,.IS.God..
.
Don't. get. me. wrong,. the. physical. book. is. not. to. be. worshipped. like. some. Christians. falsely.
believe..And.those.words.that.have.been.translated.into.your.language.are.not.to.be.worshipped.
as.they.are.translated..Those.words.are.not.some.magic.potion.that.has.an.enchantment..
.
But.if.you.read.those.words.in.the.Word,.you.will.find.Christ..
.
I.was.recently.discussing.where.I.had.been.and.where.I.was.now.with.one.of.my.new.pastors,.
and.I'm.sure.that.for.him.it.was.a.very.strange.conversation..
.
You.see,.he.viewed.my.past.religion,.called.the."Message.of.the.Hour".as.a.religion.that.had.a.set.
of.beliefs.and.teachings.that.they.thought.to.be.according.to.the.Bible,.and.founded.by.a.man.
who.had.a.set.of.teachings.that.all.had.followed..And.with.good.reason.\.because.that.is.the.way.
that.the."Message.of.the.Hour".is.promoted..
.
The. "Message. of. the. Hour". is. promoted. as. a. non\denominational. Christian. church,. or. set. of.
churches.\.but.nothing.could.be.further.from.the.truth..
.
A.denomination.is.a.set.of.beliefs.or.standards.that.set.you.apart.from.another.group.of.religious.
faith.under.the.same.umbrella..The."Message.churches".claim.to.be.Christian,.just.as.the.Baptist.
claim. to. be. Christians.. But. you. won't. find. too. many. "Message. folk". frequenting. the. Baptist.
churches,.because.they.have.a.different.set.of.doctrines.that.they.hold.as.valuable..
.
Yet,.to.answer.my.new.pastor's.question,."Where.did.I.come.from,".this.was.much.more.difficult.
than. I. first. realized.. No. two. "Message. churches". believed. the. same. way. \. all. placed. different.
doctrines.above.another..All.were.organized.with.the.same.foundation,.William.Branham,.but.
not.a.single.church.can.be.found.that.believes.the.same.way.as.another.within.the."Message.of.
the.Hour,".and.many.will.not.even.fellowship.with.one.another..
.

So.to.answer.the.question,.I.couldn't.look.at.the.church.\.I.had.to.examine.the.foundation..Unless.
I.had.been.born.and.raised.in.the.same.church,.and.had.been.there.my.entire.life,.that.would.
never.have.had.made.any.sense..And.I.had.been.to.AT.LEAST.fifteen.different.churches.within.
the."Message.of.the.Hour,".from.South.Carolina.to.Arizona.
.
The. latter. part. of. my. "Message. life". was. spent. in. William. Branham's. home. church. of.
Jeffersonville,.Indiana.(Branham.Tabernacle).\.over.fifteen.years..And.both.the.church.and.the.
headquarters,.Voice.of.God.Recordings,.promote.the.theology.that.William.Branham.was.the.
absolute. "voice. of. God". for. this. day.. They. promote. the. idea. that. he. did. make. mistakes. as. a.
human,.but.when.teaching.the."Word,".there.is.not.a.mistake.to.be.found..They.promote.those.
tapes.as."absolute.truth".that.are.the."stored.up.food".for.this.day.and.age..In.fact,.there.is.a.
video.online.of.Joseph.Branham,.William.Branham's.own.son,.claiming.that."this.message.is.my.
absolute.".
.
But.in.examining.William.Branham's.teaching,.we.find.that.there.are.many.things.that.do.not.line.
up.exactly.with.the.Bible..The.first.part.of.his.ministry.on.recorded.tape.was.during.a.time.when.
he.was.the.second.half.of.the."Baxter.Branham.Campaign,".where.Ern.Baxter.would.preach.and.
teach.the.Word.of.God.while.William.Branham.prayed.for.the.sick.and.afflicted..
.
Branham.himself.admitted.not.to.be.a.teacher,.even.not.to.be.a.preacher,.but.simply.one.who.
prays. for. the. sick. while. he. was. with. Baxter.. But. there. was. a. strange. and. unusual. series. of.
comments.with.regards.to.the.Word.of.God,.which.the.book.of.John.says.WAS.GOD..
.
Branham. made. these. statements. often. \. saying. it. in. a. joking. manner.. I. still. remember. the.
laughter.ringing.each.time.this.statement.was.made.in.the.Branham.Tabernacle..Even.though.
each.member.of.the.congregation.had.heard.that.same.tape.many,.many.times.before,.those.
same.people.would.laugh.at.the.same.jokes.at.the.same.time.as.if.they.were.part.of.some.stage.
act.and.a.light.started.flashing.in.the.corner.that.said,."LAUGH.".
.
While.Branham.was.with.Ern.Baxter,.he.would.often.admit.that.he.had.not.studied.his.own.Bible..
Others,.beside.himself,.were.more.qualified.to.teach.\.so.he.just.simply.prayed.for.the.sick..One.
sermon.was.even.using.that.same.title,."Why.I'm.Praying.For.The.Sick.".
.
Here.are.a.few.examples:.
.
I.don't.know.the.Book;.I.know.the.Author.right.well..So.I\\I....But.many.of.them.are\\are.more.
qualified.to.speak.the.Word..\51\0503.AS.I.WAS.WITH.MOSES.
.
I'd.rather.have.the.Author.anyhow.any.time..His.Book's.fine..That's.right..But.I'd.rather.know.the.
Author..Wouldn't.you?.\51\0413.THE.WORKS.THAT.I.DO.BEAR.WITNESS.OF.ME.

I.don't.know.too.much.about.the.Word,.the.Book;.I.just.know.the.Author.real.well,.the.One.Who.
wrote.It,.the.Holy.Spirit..\52\0713A.EARLY.SPIRITUAL.EXPERIENCES.

doctrine..\54\0314.WHY.I'M.PRAYING.FOR.THE.SICK.
.
And.that.was.the.real,.underlying.problem:.He.didn't.know.the.Word..If.he.had.just.studied.that.
one.book.in.the.Bible,.the.Gospel.according.to.John,.Branham.would.have.known.that.God.IS.THE.
WORD..The.Word.was.with.God,.and.the.Word.WAS.GOD..
.
Reading.that.one.book.might.have.inspired.him.to.learn.the.rest.of.it.before.he.started.teaching,.
but.unfortunately.for.between.two.and.four.million.people.worldwide,.that.is.not.the.case!.
.
The.problem.with.this.is.that.from.headquarters.\.that.multi\million.dollar.building.that.sends.out.
the.missionaries.to.other.countries.\.these.recorded.sermons.by.a.man.who.did.not."know.the.
Book.too.well,".are.promoted.as.the."inspired.Word.of.God".They.are.promoted.as.lining.up.with.
the.Bible.EXACTLY,.and.that.to.understand.the.Bible,.you.must.look.through.the.lens.of.those.
teachings.by.the.man.who.did.not.know.the.Word.of.God..
.
I. can. remember. watching. several. testimonies. by. Branham's. oldest. son,. Billy. Paul,. where. he.
compared.the."Message.of.the.Hour".to.the.back.sight.of.his.rifle..He.would.often.describe.how.
his.gun.would.never.hit.the.target.if.you.only.use.ONE.of.the.sights..If.you.tried.to.get.the.kill.with.
just.the.front.sight,.you'd.miss.every.time..And.if.you.only.used.the.back.sight,.you'd.be.a.million.
miles.from.your.target..
.
He.would.say.that.you.MUST.look.through.the.back.sight.(which.he.called.the.teachings.of.his.
father).to.see.the.front.sight.(which.he.called.the.bible),.and.then."you'll.hit.the.target.every.
time.".
.
In.other.words,.you.must.filter.the.Bible.by.the.words.of.a.man,.and.that.man.just.happened.to.
be.his.father.who.set.up.his.money.train..
.
Folks,.if.you.can't.hit.the.target.by.reading.your.Bible,.then.you.are.NOT.READING.it!.The.Bible.is.
the.Word.of.God.\.and.remember,.that.same.Word.was.in.the.beginning.with.Him,.and.it.WAS.
HIM!.
.
It.is.because.of.this.doctrine,.coming.directly.from.headquarters.at.Voice.of.God.Recordings,.that.
many.churches.will.not.take.the.words.of.the.Bible.over.the.words.of.William.Branham..If.he.said.
it,.and.it.disagreed.with.their.Bible,.then.their.Bible.must.be.wrong..I.even.had.a.man.from.South.

I.remember.very.clearly.a.time.when.I.walked.alone,.sat.in.a.group.of.people.pretending.they.did.
not.exist,.and.listened.to.the.teacher.speaking.as.if.she.were.one.of.the.non\voiced.teachers.in.
the.Peanuts.cartoons...I.wanted.to.go.home!...not.my.home.made.of.brick.and.mortar,.but.
home.to.another.world.and.leave.all.of.these.people.to.their.DOOM!.
.
I. can. remember. walking. between. classes. one. day,. and. three. other. teen. agers. were. walking.
together,.laughing...I.was.watching.them.in.awe,.thinking.about.how.nice.it.would.be.to.have.a.
group.of.buddies.that.I.knew.and.could.trust.and.that.were.NOT.marked.with.the."Mark.of.the.
Beast."..
.
The.problem.was.that.I.was.staring..which.breaks."rule.number.one".in.the.teenager.code.of.
conduct...The.guy.in.the.middle.caught.it,.walked.up.to.me,.and.punched.me.solidly.in.the.gut!..
It.caught.me.by.surprise..I.was.completely.relaxed..and.so.it.took.the.wind.completely.from.
me,.and.I.fell.helpless.to.the.floor.gasping.for.breath..
.
I.didn't.know.this.boy...In.fact,.this.may.have.been.the.first.time.I.had.seen.him...But.I.was.curious.
.I.wanted.to.know.WHO.punched.me.in.the.stomach!..So.I.started.asking.around,.got.a.name,.
and.tried.to.find.out.a.little.more.about.him..
.
But.before.I.could.learn.too.much.more,.this.boy.who.had.punched.me.in.the.stomach.was.dead!..
Running.along.the.train.tracks,.he.got.a.little.too.close,.and.was.ripped.apart.by.the.force.of.a.
freight.train.loaded.with.cars.and.cars.full.of.coal..
.
I.can't.really.describe.my.emotions.on.learning.of.his.death...I.wasn't.angry.with.him..I.didn't.
even.know.him...Yet.I.felt.some.sort.of.unusual.justice.in.knowing.that.this.guy.who.punched.me.
in.the.stomach.got.his.just.reward!.

I.quickly.remembered.the.scripture.that.I.was.taught,.one.that.seemed.to.have.applied.to.this.
situation:.."It.would.be.better.to.have.a.millstone.tied.around.your.neck.and.be.drowned.than.to.
offend.one.of.these.little.ones.".
.
Thinking.on.that,.and.specifically.how.I.had.been.taught.to.interpret.that.verse,.I.held.my.head.
up...I.had.some.sort.of.superpowers,.power.that.those.other.people.in."Satan's.Eden".did.not.
have.. . I. was. some. sort. of. wizard!. . A. sorcerer. that. could. conjure. up. death. to. any. who. would.
oppose.me!..
.
William.Branham.used.that.verse.all.throughout.his.ministry,.specifically.applying.it.to.any.who.
would.question.his.authority...He.would.use.it.in.examples.of.conversations..that.only.he.could.
confirm,. of. course. . of. those. who. would. say. something. against. his. guessing. names. and.
addresses.off.of.the.back.of.prayer.cards..
.
Typically,.he.would.combine.it.with.snippets.of.other.verses,.leading.the.listener.to.believe.that.
all.of.these.verses,.taken.out.of.context.and.blended.together,.was.a.magic.spell.that.made.them.
all.untouchable!.
.
"Jesus.said,."These.signs.shall.follow.them.that.believe,.and.it'd.be.better.for.you.that.a.millstone.

remarks.as.that".\\58\0209A..HEAR.YE.HIM.

But.as.long.as.you're.His.child,.the.world.better.keep.their.hands.off.of.you.(That's.right.),.for.He.
said,."It's.far.better.for.you.that.a.millstone.was.hanged.at.your.neck.and.you.were.drowned.in.
the.depths.of.the.sea.than.even.to.bring.an.offense.upon.one.of.these.little.ones.that.believe.in.

.
Much.later.in.life,.in.a.director's.position.for.a.large.firm,.I.had.an.employee.that.SHOULD.have.
been.fired...In.fact,.I.tried.to.release.him.from.his.position,.but.unfortunately.his.esteem.with.the.
owner.of.the.firm.was.much.greater.than.my.own..
.
This.employee.had.a.gift.for.trying.to.get.ahead.by.causing.others.to.fall,.and.I.had.watched.it.
time.and.again...He.was.in.a.supervisor's.position,.a.man.that.should.help.uplift.his.team.and.give.
them.motivation.and.support..but.if.the.opportunity.presented.itself,.he.would.throw.any.one.
of.them.under.the.bus.to.lift.himself.up.even.higher..
.
Things. started. getting. very. difficult. for. me. at. the. firm.. . The. favor. I. once. had. with. the. owner.
started. to. diminish,. and. for. seemingly. no. reason.. . My. work. there. had. increased. profit.
considerably,.projects.were.going.well,.and.most.people.there.seemed.to.like.me..
.
But.I.found.out.that.this.employee..under.me..had.started.throwing.ME.under.the.bus!..He.
was.privately.speaking.with.the.owner,.telling.many.things.that.were.not.true..and.combining.

them.with.just.a.little.bit.of.truth.so.that.it.sounded.real...And.the.owner.started.eating.what.he.
was.being.spoon\fed..
.
It.didn't.take.long,..Less.than.a.month.after.I.found.out,.this.man.took.his.team.to.a.park.for.a.
victory.celebration.for.a.project.that.went.very.well...I'm.told.that.he.put.on.his.swimming.shorts,.
took.one.dive.into.the.lake,.and.never.came.up...Just.that.fast..
.
He.dove.feet\first.instead.of.head\first,.and.there.just.happened.to.be.some.cabling.at.the.bottom.
of.the.lake...Somehow.in.one.single.dive,.he.entangled.himself.into.that.cabling,.spent.all.of.his.
breath.screaming,.and.drown.within.just.a.few.minutes..
.
Again,.I.remembered.that.verse,.and.this.time.I.was.definitely.angry.with.this.man...Even.after.
his. death,. I. felt. power. over. him. with. the. power. that. was. in. me.. . I. was. the. mighty. sorcerer,.
untouchable.with.my.power.and.might.that.I.thought.God.had.given.me...My.enemies.crumble,.
my.foes.fall.at.my.feet!.
.
Looking.back,.this.is.very.painful...I.almost.can't.number.the.sins.I.committed.during.this.time,.
and.all.because.of.my.programmed.response.to.a.situation.that.was.meant.to.be.a.trial...I.failed.
my.test.miserably..
.
I.was.filled.with.pride,.one.of.the.sins.listed.in.the.new.testament...I.was.angry,.another.sin...Christ.
said.that.when.we.are.angry,.we.have.committed.murder..
.
Matthew.5:22.says,."But.I.say.to.you.that.everyone.who.is.angry.with.his.brother.will.be.liable.to.
judgment".
.
But.the.worst.sin.committed,.although.slightly.unintentional,.was.sorcery!..What.if.my.belief.that.
my.enemies.will.die.had.actually.invoked.some.spirit?..What.if.I.WAS.using.power.from.some.
elemental.spirit..and.thought.it.was.from.God?.
.
Many. cult. pastors. are. now. starting. to. tell. their. congregations. that. the. Bible. is. FILLED. with.
conflicts...For.me,.this.seemed.to.be.the.case..
.
What.I.had.been.programmed.to.believe.SEEMED.scriptural...
.
Matthew.18:6.does.say:."But.whoso.shall.offend.one.of.these.little.ones.which.believe.in.me,.it.
were.better.for.him.that.a.millstone.were.hanged.about.his.neck,.and.that.he.were.drowned.in.
the.depth.of.the.sea.".
.
How.can.I.reconcile.this.with.the.fact.that.Christ.sent.us.to.spread.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ.in.
the.face.of.MANY.people.who.were.GOING.TO.be.offended?.
.
And.He.didn't.say.that.we.should.go.be.offended.so.that.our.enemies.WILL.DIE!..

We.are.supposed.to.be.forgivers,.not.killers...We.are.to.be.filled.with.love,.not.hate...We.are.
supposed.to.bear.our.cross.as.He.bore.his,.against.a.world.that.will.persecute.us.until.He.returns!.
.
When.asked.how.many.times.we.should.forgive,.Jesus.said,."I.do.not.say.to.you.seven.times,.but.

If.the.Bible.is.to.be.our.absolute,.and.it.is.to.be.our.code.of.conduct,.then.that.code.must.not.
disagree.with.itself...We.can't.take.two.opposing.stands.if.we.are.going.to.stand.at.all..especially.
when.they.seem.to.be.arguing.directly.with.each.other!.
.
The.problem.with.my.training.on.hanging.millstones.around.the.necks.of.my.enemies.was.not.a.
fault. of. William. Branham's,. other. than. the. fact. that. he. refused. to. study. beyond. the. notes. of.
Scofield.and.Charles.Taze.Russell...He.was.reading.from.the.King.James.Version,.and.the.words.
he.read.seemed.accurate...and.they.were!.
.
The.problem.is.not.even.the.King.James.Version...At.the.time.it.was.written,.this.single.statement.
that.conflicts.with.other.scriptures.and.gives.us.power.to.kill,.did.not.have.the.same.meaning!.
.
Few.people.in.the.cult.realize.this,.because.they.have.been.programmed.to.believe.that.the.King.
James.Version.is.the.ONLY.Bible.that.God.had.His.Hand.of.protection.over...And.many.are.falsely.
taught.that.William.Branham.ONLY.studied.from.the.King.James.Bible,.when.in.fact.Branham.
promoted.other.bibles...Even.false.bibles,.like.the.version.written.by.George.Lamsa..a.man.who.
denied.the.deity.of.Christ!.
.
In.the.Elizabethan.English,.the.dialect.that.was.predominate.during.the.time.of.the.translation.
for.the.King.James.Bible,.this.word."offend".has.a.much.different.meaning.than.today..
.
The.number.one.meaning.listed.in.the.Merriam.Webster.dictionary.is.this:.
.
"To.transgress.the.moral.or.divine.law.:.sin".
.
Shakespeare.wrote.this:.
.
If.it.be.a.sin.to.covet.honor,.I.am.the.most.offending.soul.alive..Shakespeare.
.
But.in.today's.English,.and.even.in.the.understanding.during.the.40's,.50's,.and.60's,.the.word.
"offend".has.a.different.meaning...We.do.not.currently.understand.this.word.to.mean."causing.
us.to.sin."..We.now.interpret.this.word.as."causing.us.great.dislike,".or."distress."..The.word.
"offend".has.somehow.blended.over.time.with.the.word."disgust.".
.
William.Branham's.teaching.on.this.word,.though.misguided.by.the.outdated.translation.in.the.
King.James.Bible,.is.stranger.than.you.realize..
.

Reading.the.King.James..in.context..we.find.that.the.summary.of.the.chapter.is.exactly.what.
the.true.meaning.of.the.word.actually.defines:.a.warning.to.those.who.would.cause.others.to.sin..
.
In.fact,.the.very.next.verse.says.this:.
.
Woe.unto.the.world.because.of.offences!.for.it.must.needs.be.that.offences.come;.but.woe.to.
that.man.by.whom.the.offence.cometh!.Matthew.18:7.
.
It's.funny.now.that.I.think.about.it..."WOE.UNTO.YOU.FOR.CAUSING.DISGUSTED.PEOPLE!".
.
Had. I. read. this. verse. in. context. . even. in. the. King. James. Version. . I. would. have. likely.
understood.it.as.it.should.be.translated.today..
.
But.the.really.strange.part.is.that.William.Branham.himself.understood.the.meaning.of.the.word.
in.the.upcoming.verses...This.next.verse.is.one.that.has.been.correctly.understood.by.William.
Branham.AND.by.cult.pastors.for.YEARS:.
.
Wherefore.if.thy.hand.or.thy.foot.offend.thee,.cut.them.off,.and.cast.them.from.thee:.it.is.better.
for.thee.to.enter.into.life.halt.or.maimed,.rather.than.having.two.hands.or.two.feet.to.be.cast.
into.everlasting.fire..
.
I.have.heard.ministers.preaching.from.their.King.James.bible.and.change.this.word."offend".to.
"sin."..And.it.makes.much.more.sense.than.trying.to.interpret.this.verse.like.they.do.the.other.
verse..why.would.anyone.cut.their.foot.off.if.it.disgusted.them?..And.why.would.their.foot.even.
disgust.them..unless.they.hadn't.cleaned.between.their.toes.for.a.very.long.time!.
.
The.Greek\to\Latin.word.translated.for."offend".is."skandalise,".with.the.root.word."skandal."..
The.root.word.we.use.today.is."scandal,".which.means.to.stumble.morally...
.
The.incident.surrounding.a."scandal".disgraces.or.damages.the.reputation.of.the.offender,.which.
is.EXACTLY.the.most.damaging.thing.to.the.testimony.of.a.Christian...Many.good.soldiers.have.
fallen.to.scandals..many.of.which.were.unjustly.accused...Once.the.scandal.has.made.it.into.
the.minds.of.the.people,.however,.there.is.no.avoiding.the.thought...So.it.is.a.discredit.to.any.
who.would.try.to.continue.their.mission.to.spread.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ..
.
.The.newer.translations.of.the.Bible.use.the.correct.translation.of.this.word...And.when.you.read.
the.entire.section..in.context..you'll.find.that.the.translation.fits.like.a.glove.around.this.word.
that.we.have.been.falsely.taught.to.make.us.sorcerers!.
.
Whoever. humbles. himself. like. this. child. is. the. greatest. in. the. kingdom. of. heaven.. . Whoever.
receives.one.such.child.in.my.name.receives.me,.but.whoever.causes.one.of.these.little.ones.who.
believe.in.me.to.sin,.it.would.be.better.for.him.to.have.a.great.millstone.fastened.around.his.neck.

There.is.another.word.that.has.lost.its.translation.over.the.years,.and.it.goes.hand\in\hand.with.
this.word."offense."..That.word.is."curse.".
.
In.today's.English,.we.view."cursing".as."cussing,".or.we.picture.some.witch.standing.over.her.
pot.of.brew.casting.spells.on.other.people..
.
But.the.Old\English.version.of.that.word.is.much.like.we.find.in.our.false.teaching.of.the.word.
"offense."..A.curse.was.the.idea.that.you.can.cause.evil.or.misfortune.to.befall.upon.another.
person...
.
Cursing.is.widely.used.in.the.cult.today...Many.ministers.will.describe.how.evil.will.befall.you.if.
you.question.or.if.you.leave...Many.of.us.that.have.now.left.have.been."cursed".by.ministers.
telling.their.congregations.how.they.were.doomed.to.die...I.think.one.minister.down.in.Georgia.
even.put.a.timeline.on.mine..describing.how.souls.in.prison.had.escaped.his.cult.and.died.within.
a.month..
.
This.is.no.different.than.our.misuse.of.the.word."offense."..Causing.evil.to.befall.upon.someone,.
whether.by.word.or.by.deed.is.a.curse...And.it.is.an.abomination.before.the.Lord..
.
Cursing.is.not.something.that.you.would.find.the.Jewish.people.doing.during.the.time.of.Jesus.
and.the.Apostles...Under.the.Mosaic.Law,.this.hideous.crime.was.punishable.by.death...It.was.
one.of.the.sins.listed.that.resulted.in.stoning.the.offender..God.did.not.want.people.within.his.
people.destroying.each.other.from.the.inside..
.
I.look.back.on.these.two.men.that.I.cursed,.and.I.beg.forgiveness.from.Christ...No,.I.did.not.directly.
cause.their.death,.and.I.did.not.summon.up.demons.to.attack.them...But.I.did.not.have.the.love.
and.forgiveness.that.Christ.wanted.me.to.have...I.did.not.forgive.these.men.seventy\times\seven.
.by.not.mourning.their.lost.souls,.I.was.actually.rejoicing.in.their.deaths!.
.
What.if.I.had.endured.the.test,.and.those.two.men.would.have.been.led.to.Christ?..What.if.by.
my.persecution,.these.men.would.have.seen.God.in.my.actions?..What.if.I.had.conducted.myself.
completely.differently,.not.thinking.that.they.had.taken.the."Mark.of.the.Beast,".and.instead.I.
viewed.them.as.potential.converts.to.Christ?.

Avoiding$The$book$of$Esther$
.
The.Book.of.Esther.is.one.that.is.largely.avoided.during.the.eighteen.years.of.recorded.ministry.
by.William.Marrion.Branham...In.fact,.he.only.spoke.of.Esther.fourteen.times.on.recorded.tape,.
and.almost.all.of.those.times.were.during.one.single.sermon:."The.Marriage.of.the.Lamb.".
.
Reflecting.on.the.common.viewpoint.in.the.cult,.that.William.Branham.was.an."authority".on.
scripture,.this.one.single.book.in.the.Bible.astounds.me...Not.only.was.this.book.avoided,.but.the.
entire.theology.and.doctrinal.teaching.that.came.from.the.one.single.sermon.preached.about.
Esther.is.exactly..backwards!.
.
You.see,.we.were.taught.to.believe.many.things.about.Esther.that.were.either.extra\biblical.or.
that.strongly.disagreed.with.the.scripture...Since.this.was.the.one.book.that.strongly.opposed.
Branham's.extra\biblical.teaching.that.makeup.or.cosmetics.were.designed.by.Satan,.the."god.of.
this.evil.age,".it.is.no.wonder.that.the.entire.book.was.largely.avoided.by.William.Branham.and.
is.almost.completely.avoided.by.ministers.that.still.remain.in.the.cult..
.
There.are.several.things.that.should.have.stood.out.as.false.by.the.men.and.women.who.had.
actually.read.the.Book...Some.of.them.are.so.obvious.that.I.am.actually.surprised.there.were.not.
school.children.that.stood.up.in.the.sermon.and.said,."Hey,.Mr..Branham!..That's.not.what.MY.
Bible.says!".
.
We.were.taught.that.Esther.was.a."judge".in.the.Old.Testament,.simply.because.there.was.a.book.
written.about.her.life.story...And.this.is.very.interesting,.because.in.his.use.of.this.extra\biblical.
teaching,.Branham.takes.the.opposing.stance.to.most.of.his.other.sermons..actually.AGREEING.
with.women.in.authority!.
.
If. those. still. enslaved. by. the. cult. of. William. Branham. today. were. to. only. read. this. single.
statement.by.William.Branham,.it.would.likely.change.the.course.of.several.sermons.and.sway.
many.political.votes!.
.
And.this.man.and.wife,.I.was.eating.breakfast.with.them;.they.said,."Brother.Branham,.look.at.
this..Would.you.think.it?".and.pulled.out.a.letter..
.
I.said,."Well,.sister,.she.just.don't.understand."..The.boys.told.me.their.mother.was.a.woman.
preacher,.and.that.she.didn't.go.for.the.Message..
.
And.now.she.says.in.here,.she.said,."Now.he.said,.'Women.should.not.have.authority.over.man.'".
Said,."How.about.Phebe.in.the.Bible,.Paul's.helper?"..Certainly,.she.was.a.seller.of.goods..And.
Paul.asked.the.people....Do.you.think.Paul.would.say,."Let.the.women.keep.silent.in.the.churches,.
not.permitted.them.to.speak,".and.turn.around.and.say,."Now,.Phebe,.my.helper.in.the.Gospel,.
she.is.going.to.preach.a.few.nights"?.Why,.he.would.contradict.his.own.word..See?.
.

www.seekyethetruth.com.

111.

And.said,.then,.to.top.it.all,."I.believe.it.was.Esther....was.one.of.the.judges.in.the.Bible.".Said,."A.
woman.was.a.judge.in.the.Bible..If.that's.not.authority.over.man!".
.
And.this.businessman.that.was.healed.right.here.in.the.church.not.long.ago,.he.said....Now,.his.
wife.said,."Brother.Branham,.that.always.puzzled.me.".
.
I.said,."Why,.sister,.how.would.that.puzzle.you?".
.
Said,. "Well,. here. is. a. woman. judge.". . I. said,. "That's. politics,. not. the. church.. That. don't. have.
nothing.to.do.with.the.church.".
.
65\0815..AND.KNOWETH.IT.NOT.
.
But.the.sad.truth.is.that.this.statement,.while.partially.correct,.uses.extra\biblical.theology.to.
support. women. in. politics.. . A. judge. in. the. Old. Testament. was. a. military. leader. or. ruler. who.
decided.the.fate.of.the.nations.and.governed.law.with.justice.in.their.decisions...
.
Esther.was.not.in.this.position,.according.to.Scripture...Ahasuerus.was.king,.and.Esther,.although.
favored,.was.still.simply.one.of.his.wives...She.had.influence.over.his.decisions,.but.through.the.
entire.book.of.Esther,.Ahasuerus.was.the.decision.maker...And.Mordecai.was.second.in.command.
.not.Esther!.
.
"For.Mordecai.the.Jew.was.second.in.rank.to.King.Ahasuerus,.and.he.was.great.among.the.Jews.
and.popular.with.the.multitude.of.his.brothers,.for.he.sought.the.welfare.of.his.people.and.spoke.
peace.to.all.his.people."..\Esther.10.
.
But.the.real.underlying.problem.for.Branham..most.likely.the.one.that.caused.him.to.avoid.this.
very.good.book.in.the.Bible..is.that.she.gained.the.king's.favor.by.using.cosmetics.in.a.beauty.
contest!.
.
And.even.if.she.DIDN'T.use.cosmetics,.Esther.herself.would.be.a.real.eye.opener.to.another.one.
of.Branham's.false.teachings...Branham.infected.the.following.with.another.false.teaching.that.it.
was. Satan. who. designed. women. . not. God.. . And. according. to. Branham,. Satan. made. them.
beautiful.so.that.women.would.be.the.thorn.in.man's.side!.
.
He.couldn't.use.that.twisted.theology.in.this.sermon.about.Esther...It.would.have.made.for.one.
confusing.sermon!..
.
Imagine.if.he.told.the.people.how.beautiful.Esther.was,.and.then.injected.this.false.statement.
into.the.sermon,.one.that.he.taught.all.throughout.the.latter.part.of.his.ministry:.

Beauty.is.of.the.devil,.always..That's.exactly.right..

.
In.the.second.chapter.of.Esther,.the.Bible.describes.her.as.a."woman.with.a.beautiful.figure,".and.
"lovely.to.look.upon."..Esther.was.a.stunning.beauty,.and.she.was.not."designed.by.Satan."..In.
fact,.God.used.her.beauty.to.work.his.Divine.will!.
.
But.we.were.taught.that.Esther.refused.her.cosmetics.and.perfumes.to.enter.the.beauty.contest.
as. a. homely. looking. woman. wearing. only. the. most. modest. of. apparel.. . This,. according. to.
Branham,.was.to.be.a."type".of.the.church:.
.
The.church.is.a.whole.lot.like.it.was.in.the.days.of.Esther..Esther.didn't.take.the.perfuming.of\\of.
the.women..She.adorned.herself.with.the.modest.apparel,.the.hidden.man.of.the.heart..And.the.
king.said,."Put.the.crown.on.her.head.".Esther.was.a.type.of.the.church.today,.those.who.are.

the.one..
.
62\0127..MEANEST.MAN.I.KNOW.
.
You.see,.Branham.taught.that.these.other.women.in.the.beauty.contest.represented.the.women.
who.did.not.follow.his.cult...Those.women.wore.COSMETICS!..They.certainly.must.be.evil!..He.
taught.that.Esther.refused.these.cosmetics.and.perfumes!.
.
But.the.Bible.tells.quite.a.different.story,.right.there.in.the.beginning.of.the.book!.
.
So.when.the.king's.order.and.his.edict.were.proclaimed,.and.when.many.young.women.were.
gathered.in.Susa.the.citadel.in.custody.of.Hegai,.Esther.also.was.taken.into.the.king's.palace.and.
put.in.custody.of.Hegai,.who.had.charge.of.the.women...And.the.young.woman.pleased.him.and.
won.his.favor..And.he.quickly.provided.her.with.her.cosmetics.and.her.portion.of.food,.and.with.
seven.chosen.young.women.from.the.king's.palace,.and.advanced.her.and.her.young.women.to.
the.best.place.in.the.harem..
.
Esther.2..
.
This.is.exciting!..Esther.won.the.first.round.of.the.beauty.contest!..She.advanced.to.the.second.
round,.and.won.the.favor.of.Hegai!.
.
So. as. we. see,. Hegai. provided. her. with. cosmetics.. . The. Hebrew. word. translated. here. is.
"tam~ru~qe~ha,".which.literally.translated.means."cosmetics."..The.King.James.version.calls.it.
"things.for.her.purification,".which.according.to.custom.would.have.included.many.different.oils.
and.spices,.some.of.which.would.have.included.the.royal.colors..
.
In.the.Days.of.Esther,.most.of.the.royalty.in.the.ancient.world.adorned.themselves.with."Tyre.
purple."..King.David.was.close.friends.with.the.prince.of.Tyre,.and.established.trade.with.the.port.

city.of.Tyre...It.is.believed.that.even.the.pillars.of.King.Solomon's.temple.were.fashioned.after.the.
pillars.in.the.city.of.Tyre..
.
Tyre.had.unique.plants.that.produced.purple.dye...This.purple.had.made.its.way.into.the.citadel.
of.Susa,.and.is.mentioned.in.Esther.1:6:.
.
There.were.white.cotton.curtains.and.violet.hangings.fastened.with.cords.of.fine.linen.and.purple.
to.silver.rods.and.marble.pillars,.and.also.couches.of.gold.and.silver.on.a.mosaic.pavement.of.
porphyry,.marble,.mother\of\pearl.and.precious.stones..
.
The.blues.and.the.purples.that.came.from.Tyre.were.scarce,.and.highly.expensive...Most.of.the.
ancient.world,.with.the.exception.of.royalty,.did.not.have.access.to.this.color.like.we.do.today...
There.were.no.purple.crayons.or.cans.of.purple.spray\paint!.
.
But.we.were.falsely.taught.that.Esther.did.NOT.use.these.things.to.increase.her.beauty...We.were.
taught.that.she.strictly.refused.them..and.refused.them.ONLY.because.they.did.not.align.with.
Branham's.extra\biblical.teaching..
.
There. were. no. Laws. in. the. Old. Covenant. forbidding. the. Children. of. Israel. from. avoiding. oils,.
spices,. perfumes,. and. paints.. . There. were. no. Laws. that. said. to. avoid. the. "beautiful. women".
because.they.were.designed.by.Satan..otherwise.we.would.have.been.left.with.one.ugly.race.
of.Jewish.people!..You.wouldn't.find.a."Miss.Israel".entry.in.the.beauty.pageant..they'd.be.
more.likely.to.have.a."Miss.Homely".contest.to.see.which.woman.is.more."holy.".
.
But. listen. to. the. stark. contrast. between. Esther,. having. advanced. to. stage. two. of. the. beauty.
contest,.given.cosmetics.to.make.herself.more.beautiful:.
.
Branham.says.this:.
.
Now,.we.find.ourselves.then,.that.Esther,.after.she....They.put.her.in.one.of.these.places,.to.get.
herself.all.fixed.up,.to.make.her.show.before.the.king..My!.She.refused.it..She.didn't.want.it..She.
wanted.to.go.out.just.like.she.was..Amen..
.

.
Now.that.round.two.is.over,.Esther.having.made.the.cut.of.the.seven.most.beautiful.women.in.
the.land,.let's.see.what.the.scriptures.say.about.the.time.when.she.would.present.herself.before.
the.king..
.
Did.she.suddenly.throw.out.all.those.cosmetics.that.helped.her.advance.to.this.level?..Did.she.
fall.to.her.knees.and.pray.that.God.would.blind.the.eyes.of.the.king.so.that.he.would.not.notice.
that.she.refused.the.customary.paints,.oils,.and.spices?..Did.she.have.some.vision.that.told.her.
that.the.king's.secret.desire.was.homely.women?.
.

114.

Now.when.the.turn.came.for.each.young.woman.to.go.in.to.King.Ahasuerus,.after.being.twelve.
months. under. the. regulations. for. the. women,. since. this. was. the. regular. period. of. their.
beautifying,. six. months. with. oil. of. myrrh. and. six. months. with. spices. and. ointments. for.
womenwhen.the.young.woman.went.in.to.the.king.in.this.way,.she.was.given.whatever.she.
desired.to.take.with.her.from.the.harem.to.the.king's.palace...Esther.2.
.
So.according.to.scripture,.we.find.that.Esther.spent.an.entire.YEAR.applying.cosmetics...The.oils.
prepared.her.skin.by.removing.wrinkles,.much.like.our.wrinkle.creams.today...The.spices.made.
her.smell.wonderful,.soaked.so.deeply.in.her.skin.that.she.radiated.an.aroma.pleasing.to.the.king...
.
But.listen.to.that.one.cosmetic.used:."oil.of.myrrh.".
.
Myrrh.is.extracted.from.a.very.small.and.thorny.tree.called.Commiphora.Myrrh...When.the.tree.
is.wounded,.it.excretes.the.oil,.a.resin.that.is.harvested.to.produce."Myrrh.gum."..As.it.is.excreted,.
it.forms.a.waxy,.yellowish.paste...But.as.it.ages,.it.produces.a.darker.paste,.much.like.the."face.
paint".Branham.condemned.all.throughout.his.ministry..
.
This. tree. and. its. cosmetic\producing. gum. was. and. is. native. to. Ethiopia,. one. of. the. kingdoms.
under.the.rule.of.King.Ahasuerus...Not.only.was.it.readily.available.to.those.in.the.royalty.of.his.
kingdom,.it.would.have.been.an.even.cheaper.cosmetic.than.the.imported.Tyre.purple..
.
So.now,.it's.the.final.stage.of.the.beauty.contest...The.seven.women.are.prepared,.twelve.months.
of.a.beauty.spa.for.the.elite..
.
.They.now.would.go.before.the.king,.lined.up.like.the.runway.of.our.Miss.America.contest.here.
in.the.States..
.
It's.Esther's.turn...Last.chance!..Can.she.quickly.rub.off.that.paint.that.has.now.bleached.her.skin.
to.a.dark.yellow.hue?..Will.she.roll.in.skunk.spray.to.remove.those.spices,.or.roll.in.the.mud.so.
that.she.makes.herself.more.homely.before.the.king?.
.
Let's.see.what.the.Bible.says:.
.
When.the.turn.came.for.Esther.the.daughter.of.Abihail.the.uncle.of.Mordecai,.who.had.taken.her.
as.his.own.daughter,.to.go.in.to.the.king,.she.asked.for.nothing.except.what.Hegai.the.king's.
eunuch,.who.had.charge.of.the.women,.advised....Esther.2.
.
Now.THIS.is.incredibly.smart...Esther.was.not.from.the.city,.remember?..She.was.a.captive,.taken.
from.Jerusalem,.and.was.not.familiar.with.the.king's.customs,.his.likes,.or.his.dislikes...So.she.asks.
Hegai.to.choose.exactly.how.she.should.adorn.herself...Hegai,.the.man.who.was.in.charge.of.
making.the.women..beautiful!.
.
And.it.WORKED!..Not.just.with.the.King,.but.also.with.EVERYONE.who.saw.her!.
.

Now.Esther.was.winning.favor.in.the.eyes.of.all.who.saw.her...And.when.Esther.was.taken.to.King.
Ahasuerus,.into.his.royal.palace,.in.the.tenth.month,.which.is.the.month.of.Tebeth,.in.the.seventh.
year.of.his.reign,.the.king.loved.Esther.more.than.all.the.women,.and.she.won.grace.and.favor.in.
his.sight.more.than.all.the.virgins,.so.that.he.set.the.royal.crown.on.her.head.and.made.her.queen.
instead.of.Vashti..Then.the.king.gave.a.great.feast.for.all.his.officials.and.servants;.it.was.Esther's.
feast..He.also.granted.a.remission.of.taxes.to.the.provinces.and.gave.gifts.with.royal.generosity..
.
The. book. of. Esther. is. a. very. good. one,. and. we. have. only. made. it. into. the. second. chapter...
Coincidentally,.from.1947.to.1965.on.recorded.tape,.William.Branham.only.made.it.to.the.second.
chapter..and.he.couldn't.even.say.what.the.Bible.said.in.just.two.of.the.ten.chapters!.
.
All.things.are.created.by.God.and.for.God...God.does.not.want.to.create.an.ugly.place..an.Satan.
CANNOT.create...God.made.everything.to.be.beautiful,.from.the.mountains.and.the.streams.to.
the.forest.and.the.oceans...AND.WOMEN!.
.
Women.are.not.secret.agents.in.the.secret.service.of.Satan,.as.we.were.taught.to.believe...If.a.
man.has.a.problem.with.women,.then.he.likely.has.a.problem.that.needs.counseling..
.
I.speak.from.experience.when.I.say.that.the.cult's.teaching.on.women.is.very.damaging.to.the.
men...When.I.was.in.the.cult,.many.men.struggled.with.the.natural.desires.towards.women..
simply.because.they.were.taught.NOT.to.distinguish.between.natural.affection.and.sin...In.the.
eyes.of.a.cult,.if.a.man.has.any.testosterone,.he.has.been.infected..
.
I. wish. I. had. grown. up. with. Scriptural. teaching,. with. no. extra. details. or. completely. opposite.
doctrines...I.wish.Branham.was.not.afraid.to.teach.the.REAL.story.of.Esther,.the.one.that.is.written.
in.the.Bible...I.wish.that.the.thousands.of.children.in.the.cult.were.not.being.programmed.to.
believe.that.their.natural.desires.were."of.the.devil,".and.that.their.bodies.were.trying.to.attack.
them,.spiritually..
.
I.wish.my.parents.had.followed.a.man.who.was.not.afraid.to.teach.the.Bible.as\is...A.man.who.
did.not.delight.in."special.insight".that.did.not.match.the.words.of.the.Bible...
.
Thankfully,.my.children.will.not.be.influenced.by.false.teaching...The.family.line.of.idolatry.ends.
with.my.family,.and.we.will.not.stand.to.listen.to.cowardly.men.who.are.afraid.to.preach.the.
Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ.in.its.simplicity..
.
We.will.not.stand.for.men.who.add.to.the.Word.of.God.and.men.who.call.these.new.additions.
the."Voice.of.God."..
.
Let.the.Word.of.God.stand.and.every.man.be.a.liar!.

Jewish$Mysticism$
.
In.a.short.time.span.before.the.birth.of.Christ,.a.mixture.of.pagan.worship.began.to.infiltrate.the.
Jews.and.infect.Judaism.to.create.and.form.a.new.religion.of."mystery.".Rome.was.a.superpower,.
and.the.Roman.empire.was.beginning.to.stretch.its.mighty.arm.across.many.countries..bringing.
with. it. the. ancient. worship. of. the. many. gods. and. demigods. that. the. Romans. served. in. their.
temples,.and.many.gods.that.were."acquired".through.the.conquering.of.many.nations..
.
As.Rome.was.growing.in.power,.around.100.BCE,.this.new."mystery.religion".began.to.form...By.
the.time.that.Jerusalem.was.entirely.under.Roman.authority,.around.63.BCE,.this.mystic.religion.
had.formed.into.a.growing.threat.to.those.who.tried.to.uphold.the.Law.of.Moses..
.
Like.so.many.false.religions.and.cults.today.that.are.based.on."mystery,".this.religion.came.in.the.
form. of. the. worship. of. Yahweh.. . There. were. many. teachings. in. the. new. religion. that. were.
absolute.truth..but.they.were.mixed.with.the.chains.and.bondage.of.idolatry..
.
It's.earliest.form.was.called.Merkabah.Mysticism,.one.of.the.earliest.forms.of.Jewish.Mysticism...
This.form.of.pagan.worship.was.based.heavily.around.visions,.especially.those.found.in.the.book.
of.Ezekiel...
.
The."chariot".that.Ezekiel.saw.in.the.vision.was.heavily.amplified.in.this.new.religion,.and.worship.
of. the. stars. found. in. pagan. worship. was. mixed. in. their. doctrine.. . The. new. interpretation. of.
Ezekiel's. vision. by. these. in. the. new. cult. believed. that. the. four. beasts. in. the. vision. were.
represented.by.the.four.signs.in.the.heavens,.what.would.later.become.known.as.the.Zodiac..
.
The.Zodiac.was.predominately.used.in.both.Greek.and.Roman.worship,.descended.directly.from.
Babylon...Each.of.the.planets.in.our.solar.system.were.believed.to.be.deities,.and.this.form.of.
pagan.worship.was.not.original.to.either.empire...Many.of.the.gods.worshipped.by.the.Greeks.
were.the.same.gods.worshipped.by.the.Romans..just.with.different.names..
.
Because.of.the.focal.point.of.this.form.of.mysticism.being.based.on.Ezekiel's.chariot,.this.first.
form. of. Jewish. Mysticism. would. later. become. known. as. "Chariot. Mysticism.". . And. like. some.
teachers.today.who.stray.from.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ.in.its.simplicity,.Jewish.Mysticism.was.
a.very.attractive.cult.that.was.quickly.gaining.popularity.in.the.ancient.world...In.fact,.it.spread.
far.beyond.Jerusalem,.and.started.creeping.its.way.into.the.early.Christian.church..
.
Chariot.Mysticism.took.specific.portions.of.scriptural.text,.and.amplified.them.out.of.context.into.
much.greater.meanings.and.concepts...This.earliest.form.of.Mysticism.heavily.stressed.the.visions.
of.heaven.and.the.throne.room.of.God..much.more.emphasis.on.the."mystery".than.on.the.
love,.joy,.peace,.forbearance,.kindness,.goodness,.faithfulness,.gentleness,.and.self\control.that.
were.the.reasons.that.the.Law.was.given.in.the.first.place...
.

117.

Scrolls.were.written.with.the."mysteries".as.the.focal.point...It.is.believed.that.this.is.the.form.of.
mysticism.under.which.the.Book.of.Enoch.was.written...In.fact,.the.third.book.of.Enoch.is.known.
as.the."Merkabah.Hebew.Book.of.Enoch.".
.
The.other.two.books.found.in.the.scrolls.of.Enoch.are.debated...Some.believe.they.are.Merkabah,.
while.others.believe.they.are.based.on.Hekhalot.Mysticism..
.
Hekhalot. Mysticism. focused. on. ascension.. . Literally. translated,. it. means. "palaces,". and. goes.
hand\in\hand.with."Chariot.Mysticism."..Together,.they.are.known.as.the."Books.of.the.Palaces.
of.the.Chariot.".
.
But.again,.Hekhalot.Mysticism.focused.on.the.mysteries.of.what.will.come...Those."mysteries".
were.greater.in.importance.than.the.goodwill.towards.man.that.we.should.have.while.our.mortal.
bodies.are.on.this.earth...They.were.very.damaging.sects.of.the.Jewish.tradition,.taking.the.focus.
away.from.the.good.things.that.God.has.given.us.and.turning.our.eyes.towards.the.things.that.
we.cannot.yet.have..
.
The.odd.part.about.these.ancient.texts.is.that.the.fundamental.elements.from.the.early.Jewish.
Mysticism.can.be.traced.from.many.of.the.Christian.cults.of.today..all.through.time..directly.
back.to.those.texts...And.not.just.the.teaching,.even.the.structure.of.the.cults.seem.to.align.with.
the.structure.of.the.early.pagan.influence..
.
According.to.Rabbi.Ammi.(3rd.Century),.the.secret.doctrine.was.not.for.the.hands.of.the.common.
'believers.'..They.were.not.allowed.to.question..only.those.who.possessed.the."five.qualities.of.
Isaiah.3:3".were.allowed.to.debate.or.discuss..
.
"Captain. of. fifty. and. man. of. esteem,. and. counsellor. and. skillful. craftsman,. and. one. who.
understands.secrets."..Isaiah.3:3.(Torah).
.
Moreover,.fear.tactics.were.employed.to.keep.any.from.questioning...Many.legends.(or.myths).
of.those.slain.by.God.for.questioning.or.trying.to.understand.these.'mysteries'.are.described.in.
Ma'aseh.Merkabah...In.one.such.fable,.a.young.man.who.had.not.achieved.the.'five.qualities'.and.
stumbled.on.to.the.meaning.behind.Ezekiel's.wheel.was.consumed.by.fire.for.his.over\stepping.
his.bounds!.
.
It.is.odd.when.you.consider.many.of.the."Rapture".theologies.that.are.given.by.cult.leaders.of.
our.time...Just.as.in.Jewish.Mysticism,.the.focus.of.the.religion.is.more.to.the.effect.of.where.we.
are.going.and.when.than.it.is.on.how.to.get.there...And.since.no.one.knows.the.day.nor.the.hour,.
all.of.this.is.really.speculation,.anyway!.
.
The.early.forms.of.Jewish.Mysticism.combined.together.over.time...It.is.difficult.to.trace.where.
and.when,.because.other.pagan.forms.of.worship,.such.as.Gnosticism.also.were.added.to.the.
mix..
.
www.seekyethetruth.com.

118.

These.multiple.forms.of.religious.went.underground.for.a.period.of.time,.and.later.emerged.in.
the.form.of.Kabbalah.in.the.12th.to.13th.century.Southern.France.and.Spain...
.
Like.Buddhism,.Kabbalah.is.not.regarded.as.a."religion".to.those.who.follow.its.teachings,.and.it.
is.believed.that.you.can.follow.the.teachings.of.Kabbalah.with.ANY.form.of.religion.you.practice...
By.nature,.that.is.correct,.because.many.of.the.doctrines.were.the.influence.of.Pagan.worship.on.
the.early.Jews.and.Christians..
.
And.while.many.of.the.New.Age.cults.and.religious.separation.promote.their.teachings.as.strictly.
based. upon. the. Bible,. many. of. them. oppose. Orthodoxy.. . Orthodox. Christianity. is. a. threat. to.
them,.because.it.excludes.any.teaching.that.is.extra\biblical.or.that.is.amplified.into.a.new.form.
of.worship...
.
It.is.believed.that.Paul's.writings.to.the.Colossians.contain.many.sections.to.combat.mysticism...
The.Colossians.were.quickly.growing.to.believe.many.of.the.teachings.of.early.mysticism,.and.
had.also.been.infiltrated.by.Gnosticism...
.
The.most.evident.statement.against.these.new.cultish.religions.is.found.in.the.second.chapter:.
.
Let.no.one.disqualify.you,.insisting.on.asceticism.and.worship.of.angels,.going.on.in.detail.about.
visions,.puffed.up.without.reason.by.his.sensuous.mind.
.
Colossians.2:18..
.
Also.interesting.is.that.the.mystic.'prophetess'.that.seems.to.be.the.origin.of.the."Divine.Healing".
and."Latter.Rain".movement,.Jane.Leade,.was.a.study.of.Kabbalah...
.
One.alternate.spelling.for.Kabbalah.(with.a.'K').is.Cabala...In.one.of.Leade's.writings,."A.Fountain.
of.Gardens".contains.this.statement:.
.
"The.Word.Cabala.then.much.run.through.me.".\.Leade,.A.Fountain.of.Gardens.
.
The.section.of.the.writing.goes.on.to.explain.what.this.statement.means,.but.then.ends.with.this.
declaration.of.following.mysticism:.
.

theory.called."Dispensationalism"..an.extra\biblical.teaching.that.God.manifests.himself.a.little.
bit.at.a.time.through."Dispensations.".
.
Thomas. Bromley,. member. of. the. Philadelphian. society,. wrote. a. book. entitled,. "Treatise. of.
Extraordinary.Divine.Dispensations,".and.that.writing.would.later.influence.John.Darby.to.start.
promoting.the.same...
.
As. this. mystic. influence. began. to. spread,. many. men. and. women. that. Branham. revered. and.
respected.started.to.mix.mysticism.into.their.doctrine...Clarence.Larkin,.the.man.Branham.copied.
the.dates.for.the."Seven.Church.Ages".from,.was.a.dispensationalist...In.fact,.the.entire."Seven.
Church.Age".teaching.itself.was.based.on.Jane.Leade's.teachings...Men.like.Charles.Price,.who.
Branham.spent.a.great.deal.of.time.with.in.California,.were.known.followers.of.Leade's.teaching.
and.prophecy..
.
But.like.the.ancient.Jewish.Mysticism,.William.Branham.would.take.this.idea.of.taking.a.single.
scripture. and. "amplifying. it". into. a. greater. form. of. worship.. . Many. new. and. extra\biblical.
doctrines.were.introduced.by.William.Branham,.almost.all.of.them.based.on.a.single.passage.of.
text..
.
It.would.fill.an.entire.book.to.cover.all.of.these,.but.to.highlight.a.few.of.the.most.commonly.
believed.extra\biblical.teachings,.and.for.time's.sake,.we.will.only.list.a.few..
.
Branham. added. the. idea. that. the. "dispensations". should. have. "messengers". associated. with.
them,. and. hand\picked. great. men. of. old. to. be. the. "Messengers". for. their. age.. . One. such.
messenger. was. "Columba". . the. big. mistake. the. cult. does. not. want. you. to. know. about...
Columba.was.not.alive.during.his."church.age";.Branham.forgot.to.confirm.their.dates.of.birth.
and.death.before.pinning.them.to.the.tail.of.a.Church.Age..
.
Directly.from.Jane.Leade's.prophecy,.Branham.promoted.the.idea.that.we.must.have.an."End.
Time.Messenger".that.has.essentially.replaced.the.speaking.of.the.Holy.Spirit.to.our.hearts...In.
Branham's.theology,.the.Holy.Spirit.that.guides.us.is.not.enough...We.must.have.something.more,.
some.man.of.great.power.and.spiritual.ascension...
.
Also.from.Leade.is.the.idea.that.this.new.deliverer.would.be.a.Gentile..not.a.Jew...Leade.was.
from.England,.and.like.many.of.the.cults.that.have.risen,.Leade.promoted.a.theology.based.on.
her.own.locale..
.
The.Serpent's.Seed.doctrine.Branham.promoted.is.a.teaching.of.Kabbalah...Coincidentally,.it.is.
also.found.in.Jane.Leade's.prophecy:.

And.as.Eve.did.suck.in.the.Serpently.Venom,.and.introduced.it.into.the.First.Adam,.and.thereby.

.
Leade,.Signs.of.the.Times:.Forerunning.the.Kingdom.of.Christ.
.
This. "Forerunning. the. Kingdom. of. Christ". prophecy. spawned. many. men. who. claimed. to. be.
forerunners...William.Sowders,.who.had.a.strikingly.similar."baptism.commission.as.forerunner".
to. William. Branham,. was. one. such. man.. . Joseph. Smith,. John. Alexander. Dowie,. Charles. Taze.
Russell..all.men.who.Branham.revered..promoted.themselves.as.forerunners..
.
It. was. this. extra\biblical. doctrine. that. spawned. off. several. other. doctrines. that. cannot. be.
supported.by.scripture...Some.of.them.include."Bride.Age,"."Eagle.Age,"."Rapturing.Faith,"."Word.
Bride,"."Manifesting.Time,".and.more..
.
The.worst.and.most.harmful.doctrine.we.won't.find.in.scripture.is."The.Squeeze."..This.doctrine.
was. also. promoted. by. another. cult. leader. you. will. be. familiar. with:. Pastor. Jim. Jones. of.
Jonestown...It.was.this.one.single.false.doctrine.that.caused.the.death.of.his.entire.following.in.
South.America..
.
In.examining.these.extra\biblical.theologies,.I.am.always.amused.in.remembering.the.blog,."Two.
Message.Ministers."..Specifically.the.post.claiming.that.William.Branham.was."Sola.Scriptura".or.
"By.Scripture.Alone."..Many.around.the.world.promote.this.idea..and.they.promote.it.because.
Branham.SAID.that.he.was..not.because.they.have.examined.a.single.teaching.according.to.
scripture..
.
There.are.many,.many.other.extra\biblical.doctrines.that.are.springing.up...Some.new.ones.were.
not.even.promoted.by.William.Branham,.but.are.newly.invented.to.mask.the.fact.that.Branham's.
prophecies.have.been.proven.to.have.failed...One.such.invention.is.the.theology.of."Blind.Faith".
.you.must.accept.it.by.FAITH,.my.brother!..It.only.LOOKS.like.it.failed,.God.is.involved.in.this.
great.COVER.UP.scheme!.
.
The.most.degrading.extra\biblical.teaching.was.Branham's."Thus.Saith.The.Lord".claim.that.the.
Bible. says. men. should. divorce. their. wives. if. they. cut. their. hair.. . Mix. that. with. the. degrading.
statement.that.God.will.not.hear.the.prayer.of.a.woman.who.has.cut.her.hair.and.you.have.an.
unchristian\like.authority.pronouncing.false.judgment..
.
Others.include.the.extra\biblical.idea.that.Jezebel.was.stoned.for.the.paint.around.her.eyes..
rather.than.leading.the.children.of.Israel.into.idolatry...Or.that.John.the.Baptist.was.stillborn.until.
he.heard.the.name.of.Jesus...
.
Many.to.this.day.believe.that.the.Apostle.Paul.saw.a.pillar.of.fire.in.the.wilderness,.which.is.not.
found.in.scripture...Others.believe.that.when.God.met.Abraham.in.front.of.the.tent,.God's.back.

was.to.the.tent.and.He.used."discernment".just.like.Branham.did!..The.Bible.says.that.Sarah.was.
in.the.doorway.of.the.tent.standing.behind.Abraham..
.
The.list.goes.on.and.on.and.on...Just.like.the.ancient.Jewish.mysticism,.the.people.are.attracted.
to."mysteries."..Our.minds.like.puzzles,.but.if.the.puzzle.has.no.answer,.we.like.to.cheat.and.find.
the.answer.guide...To.many,.William.Branham.was.the."answer.guide,".but.they.do.not.realize.
that.many.times,.he.gave.the.wrong.answers!.
.
The.book.of.Jude.is.a.very.short.book,.almost.not.enough.to.fill.a.scroll...But.it.has.some.very.
astounding.words...
.
It's.interesting,.because.the.book.of.Jude.references.the.book.of.Enoch..the.very.form.of.pagan.
worship.that.it.is.condemning...It.is.almost.as.though.Jude.is.reaching.out.of.the.pages,.trying.to.
snag.this.mysticism.and.strangle.it.before.it.can.spread.any.further!.
.
Many.have.asked.me.why.I.continue.to.expose.William.Branham's.lies...Why.don't.I.just.preach.
the.Gospel.instead?..Why.do.I.continue.exposing.the.lies.of.a.man,.why.can't.I.focus.on.something.
else?..
.
Jude.explains.why.HE.didn't.change.focus:..
.
"Beloved,. although. I. was. very. eager. to. write. to. you. about. our. common. salvation,. I. found. it.
necessary.to.write.appealing.to.you.to.contend.for.the.faith.that.was.once.for.all.delivered.to.the.
saints.. . For. certain. people. have. crept. in. unnoticed. who. long. ago. were. designated. for. this.
condemnation,.ungodly.people,.who.pervert.the.grace.of.our.God.into.sensuality.and.deny.our.
only.Master.and.Lord,.Jesus.Christ.".
.
The.Gnostics.had.crept.in...The.Mystics.had.crept.in...Ancient.forms.of.pagan.worship.and.idolatry.
had.infiltrated.the.Church.of.the.Living.God!.
.
Now.I.want.to.remind.you,.although.you.once.fully.knew.it,.that.Jesus,.who.saved.a.people.out.
of.the.land.of.Egypt,.afterward.destroyed.those.who.did.not.believe...And.the.angels.who.did.not.
stay.within.their.own.position.of.authority,.but.left.their.proper.dwelling,.he.has.kept.in.eternal.
chains. under. gloomy. darkness. until. the. judgment. of. the. great. day. just. as. Sodom. and.
Gomorrah.and.the.surrounding.cities,.which.likewise.indulged.in.sexual.immorality.and.pursued.
unnatural.desire,.serve.as.an.example.by.undergoing.a.punishment.of.eternal.fire..
.
In.other.words:.PAY.ATTENTION!..YOUR.LIFE.DEPENDS.UPON.IT!.
.
Yet.in.like.manner.these.people.also,.relying.on.their.dreams,.defile.the.flesh,.reject.authority,.
and.blaspheme.the.glorious.ones...But.when.the.archangel.Michael,.contending.with.the.devil,.
was. disputing. about. the. body. of. Moses,. he. did. not. presume. to. pronounce. a. blasphemous.
judgment,.but.said,."The.Lord.rebuke.you.".

In.other.words:.MICHAEL.IS.JUST.AN.ARCHANGEL!..NOT.GOD!..DON'T.WORSHIP.THE.ANGELS!.

But.these.people.blaspheme.all.that.they.do.not.understand,.and.they.are.destroyed.by.all.that.
they,.like.unreasoning.animals,.understand.instinctively..Woe.to.them!.For.they.walked.in.the.
way.of.Cain.and.abandoned.themselves.for.the.sake.of.gain.to.Balaam's.error.and.perished.in.
Korah's.rebellion...These.are.hidden.reefs.at.your.love.feasts,.as.they.feast.with.you.without.fear,.
shepherds. feeding. themselves;. waterless. clouds,. swept. along. by. winds;. fruitless. trees. in. late.
autumn,.twice.dead,.uprooted;.wild.waves.of.the.sea,.casting.up.the.foam.of.their.own.shame;.
wandering.stars,.for.whom.the.gloom.of.utter.darkness.has.been.reserved.forever..

.
The.most.astounding.paragraph.in.this.book...Listen.to.Jude!..If.you.won't.hear.me,.hear.Jude!..
Examine.the.doctrines.of.these.men!..They.are.ever\changing!..They.are.tossed.to.and.fro,.not.
grounded.in.the.scriptures!..And.they.will.seem.like.loving.pastors,.loving.shepherds,.sitting.right.
there.with.you!.
.
It.was.also.about.these.that.Enoch,.the.seventh.from.Adam,.prophesied,.saying,."Behold,.the.
Lord.comes.with.ten.thousands.of.his.holy.ones,.to.execute.judgment.on.all.and.to.convict.all.the.
ungodly.of.all.their.deeds.of.ungodliness.that.they.have.committed.in.such.an.ungodly.way,.and.
of. all. the. harsh. things. that. ungodly. sinners. have. spoken. against. him.". These. are. grumblers,.
malcontents,. following. their. own. sinful. desires;. they. are. loud\mouthed. boasters,. showing.
favoritism.to.gain.advantage..
.

.
Boasters!..Loud\mouthed!..Pay.attention.to.the.tapes,.examine.the.stories,.and.see.what.we.

.
I.heard.a.comment.recently,.describing.a.man.who.causally.overheard.Branham.screaming.like.a.
madman. into. the. microphone. of. a. recorded. tape.. . The. guy. actually. thought. this. person. was.
listening.to.a.tape.of.HITLER!..It's.the.same.tactic,.scream.your.subjects.into.submission!.
.
This.last.part.shocks.even.me...I.can.remember.the.MANY,.MANY.times.that.William.Branham.
spoke.about.the.scoffers.that.would.rise,.following.their.own.lusts.and.passions...And.it.sounded.
very.much.like.he.was.agreeing.with.Jude!..He.was.the.one.telling.us.they.would.come!..Branham.
was..
.
But.you.must.remember,.beloved,.the.predictions.of.the.apostles.of.our.Lord.Jesus.Christ...They.
said.to.you,."In.the.last.time.there.will.be.scoffers,.following.their.own.ungodly.passions."..It.is.
these.who.cause.divisions,.worldly.people,.devoid.of.the.Spirit...

The.apostles.have.told.us.that.there.will.come.scoffers.\\.long.ago...Yet.this.is.what.Branham.
promoted. to. try. to. focus. people. on. HIS. ministry. . not. scoffers. against. Jesus. Christ. and.

himself!..He.PROMOTED.separation!..And.Jude.says.that.he.is.devoid.of.the.Spirit!.
.
I'm.going.to.end.with.the.last.portion.of.Jude...There.is.nothing.that.I.can.say.that.is.better.than.
the.way.that.Jude.ends.this.chapter:.
.
But.you,.beloved,.building.yourselves.up.in.your.most.holy.faith.and.praying.in.the.Holy.Spirit.
[NOT.A.PROPHET],keep.yourselves.in.the.love.of.God,.waiting.for.the.mercy.of.our.Lord.Jesus.

I've.seen.many.who.are.watching.the.large.number.of.people.who.have.stood.up.for.Christ.and.
will.no.longer.stand.for.false.teaching...These.people.watching.are.curious,.but.are.also.trained.
to.focus.on.outward.appearance.and.superficial.things.rather.than.the.change.in.the.heart.that.
happens.when.Christ.sets.you.free..
.
It.is.exciting,.really!..Over.the.past.year.and.a.half.since.Seek.Ye.The.Truth.started,.I've.watched.
people.come.out,.wounded.and.bleeding.from.the.cuts.and.bruises.on.their.hands.and.their.feet.
from.the.chains.that.had.them.bound...There's.almost.no.example.in.life.that.can.be.used.to.
describe.the.transition.from.slavery.to.freedom!.
.
Many.who.describe.this.change.in.a.person.fleeing.a.cult.will.use."slavery".as.their.example...How.
that.for.so.long,.they.carried.a.ball.and.chain...They.describe.how.that.they.dragged.this.heavy.
ball.around,.the.weight.of.the.ball.forbidding.them.to.move.freely...Then.when.Christ.sets.them.
free,.they.are.now.able.to.move...They're.able.to.run.instead.of.struggling.to.even.walk.with.the.
heavy.ball.behind.them..
.
Others.use.examples.like.prisoners.of.war,.trapped.in.a.dark.dungeon...How.the.people.were.
confined.to.a.single.group.of.people,.not.able.to.fellowship.with.those.outside.of.their.four.walls...
Forced.to.enjoy.the.darkness,.not.accustomed.to.the.light...Then,.when.set.free,.the.light.is.almost.
blinding.while.they.transition.and.become.accustomed.to.the.sun..
.
But.none.of.these.fit.in.the.cult.of.William.Branham,.really...We.were.not.prisoners.of.war,.we.
were.not.slaves.by.any.other.man..we.were.slaves.of.our.own.desire...Nothing.kept.us.from.
leaving.outside.of.the.initial.fear.that.we.must.believe.in.something.besides.the.work.that.Jesus.
Christ.did.on.the.cross.for.us...The.cross.was.not.enough;.that's.why.those.people.outside.our.cell.
in.that.sunlight.were.dying!.
.
And.while.I.spend.countless.hours.pointing.out.the.many.lies.William.Branham.told,.from.his.own.
story.of.his.conversion.to.Christ,.to.the.prophecies.and.spiritual.events,.to.his.own.childhood..
right.down.to.his.own.birthdate..many.of.us.did.not.believe.the.things.we.knew.already.to.be.
false...
.
We.knew.that.men.had.the.same.number.of.ribs.as.women,.regardless.of.Branham's.story.tying.
that. change. to. the. Garden. of. Eden. and. the. "seed. of. the. serpent.". . Some. of. us. were. medical.
students,.and.had.seen.X\rays.inside.the.bodies...These.things,.we.simply.counted.towards.his.
"lack.of.education."..(Which.is.also.now.in.question.).
.
When.Branham.claimed.to.have.prophesied.that.a."woman.would.be.president,".and.then.he.
claimed.that."prophecy".to.have.been.fulfilled.with.President.Kennedy,.many.knew.that.couldn't.
be.true...Not.just.because.Kennedy.was.a.man..which.should.have.been.obvious.to.EVERYONE.
. but. because. Branham. continued. to. promote. this. coming. event. even. after. promoting. it. as.

already.completed...That."fulfillment".pretty.much.ended.with.the.death.of.President.Kennedy...
We.actually.have.Lee.Harvey.Oswald.to.think.for.eliminating.one.of.the.cult's.false.teachings!.
.
I.have.thought.long.and.hard.about.how.best.to.describe.those.who.were.trapped.in.this.cult...
Especially.the.ones.like.me,.who.were.born.into.it..not.joining.into.a.cult.by.our.own.desire.or.
choice...
.
We.were.Christians...We.believed.the.Bible...Some.of.us.even.read.the.Bible...We.knew.many.
scriptures,. but. we. had. something. else. added. with. it.. . Like. the. book. of. Mormon,. we. had.
Branham's.teachings.in.addition.to.the.Word.of.God...The.parts.that.the.Bible.did.not.tell.us,.we.
could.simply.look.to.the."Book.of.Branham".to.find.the.parts.that.were.written."in\between.the.
lines.".
.
So.I.didn't.want.to.use.the.example.of.prison.camps...That.term.is.very.negative,.and.degrading.
to.the.Christian.people.still.trapped.inside.of.the.cult...It.is.not.helpful..it.doesn't.describe.the.
Christian.being.set.free.so.much.as.it.points.fingers.of.accusation.against.the.many.who.still.have.
not.yet.awakened..
.
Nor.did.I.want.to.use.the.example.of.slavery...I.have.lived.in.the.South.of.the.United.States,.a.
place. where. slavery. was. and. still. remains. a. big. issue.. . Slavery. makes. the. owners. "high. and.
mighty".while.making.the.slaves."lowly.and.illiterate."..While.many.have.told.us.that.are.exposing.
Branham's. lies. is. very. much. like. the. Underground. Railroad. during. the. days. of. slavery,. I. don't.
consider.the.people.being.set.free.as.uneducated.or.illiterate...
.
In. fact,. most. of. the. people. I've. spoken. with. . the. vast. majority. . DO. read. their. Bibles...
Moreover,.in.my.own.personal.experience,.it.seems.that.ONLY.the.ones.who.study.and.believe.
their.Bibles.are.the.ones.who.can.be.awakened...These.are.the.people.that.put.their.faith.in.God's.
Word.above.any.man..sinner,.saint,.prophet,.or.pope...The.ones.who.are.illiterate.in.their.Bibles.
are.usually.the.ones.that.place.Branham.as.their.absolute..not.the.Word.of.God...And.they.are.
the.ones.that.lift.Branham.up.into.a.replacement.for.Jesus.Christ..
.
I.had.one.man.last.night.try.to.start.a.private.argument.with.me..which.I.avoid...His.argument.
in.defense.of.this.failed.prophet.was.that.to."Speak.against.the.Son.of.Man.is.antichrist.".
.
William.Branham.is.NOT.the.Son.of.Man!..Branham.was.not.God.made.flesh.and.walking.among.
us..God.does.not.speak.lies!..God.cannot.have.failed.prophecy,.because.He.IS.the.future,.just.
as.He.IS.right.now...God.is.eternal,.not.limited.to.our.time.and.space.as.mortals..
.
If.I.were.to.use.the.term."slaves,".it.might.actually.fit.for.these.people..because.they.are.truly.
slaves...Unless.God.can.work.a.miracle.in.their.lives,.they.will.never.awaken...Their.faith.is.not.in.
God,.their.faith.is.placed.in.a.man...
.
But.for.those.who.have.been.set.free,.this.term.does.not.apply..

For.me,.the.example.that.seems.to.fit.best.is.a.very.simple.one...It.doesn't.have.the.emotional.
ties.to.prison.camps,.and.it.doesn't.have.the.long.history.trail.behind.slavery...Sometimes.the.
best.examples.you.can.find.are.the.most.basic,.elementary.simple..examples..
.
The.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ.is.simple...
.
The.Children.of.Israel.asked.Moses.to.go.and.ask.God.to.tell.them.what.they.could.do.to.be.saved,.
and. Moses. came. down. the. mountain. with. the. Mosaic. Law.. . . . Time. after. time,. example. after.
example,. the. Bible. shows. how. weak. the. human. race. actually. is.. . Mankind. could. not. save.
themselves.by.their.own.actions...They.failed.every.single.time...Mankind.needed.a.Savior..
.
The.Law.came.with.a.penalty,.and.that.penalty.was.death...We.all.were.destined.to.die...God.
loved.us.SO.MUCH.that.He.sent.His.only.Son,.Jesus.Christ,.to.die.in.our.place...He.lived.the.perfect.
life,. something. that. we. could. never. do.. . He. suffered. and. died. on. the. cross. for. our. salvation,.
paying.the.penalty.so.that.we.did.not.have.to...He.conquered.death,.hell,.and.the.grave,.then.
rose.again.so.that.we.can.rise.with.Him...And.all.who.believe.that.Jesus.Christ.is.the.Son.of.the.
Living.God.is.granted.Grace,.Unmerited.Favor,.to.be.heirs.to.the.Kingdom.of.Heaven!.
.
Most.cult.pastors.today.do.not.want.to.preach.a.simple.thing...Their.sermons.are.filled.with.men.
falling.off.of.bridges,.bears,.bright.lights,.signs.and.wonders...The.Gospel.in.its.simplicity.is.no.
longer.exciting.to.them...The.people.have.been.programmed.to.seek.out.more."mysteries,".and.
are.no.longer.eager.to.sit.through.a.sermon.on.the.simple.Gospel.of.Christ...
.
But.sometimes,.the.simplicity.is.the.BEST.you.can.ever.give.your.congregations!.
.
Many.of.us.that.have.left.the.cult.are.no.different.than.before...We.were.always.Christians,.we.
always.put.God.first,.family.second,.everything.else.last...We.believed.in.Christ,.and.accepted.the.
Work.that.Christ.did.on.the.cross.for.us...
.
We.were.bound,.we.were.blinded,.but.we.were.tied.with.something.that.constricted.us..not.
just.held.us...We.were.like.coiled.springs..
.
When.our.small.bindings.of.fear.were.taken.off,.our.springs.shot.up.like.rockets.blasting.to.the.
moon!..We.are.the.same.springs.as.before,.just.more.excited.about.Christ!..We.no.longer.sit.in.
some.pew.counting.ceiling.tiles,.then.enter.our.workweek.without.telling.others..we.want.to.
tell.EVERYONE.that.Christ.came.to.save!.
.
This.is.the.most.exciting.times.of.many.of.our.lives!..We.are.actually.watching.as.an.assembly.line.
of.springs.are.taken.off.of.the.shelves,.and.they.are.carefully.removing.the.little.plastic.strap.that.
has.them.coiled!..It.is.like.fireworks.going.off,.springs.shooting.up.in.many.cities.of.many.states.
or.regions.of.every.country.around.the.world!..The.greatest.fireworks.display.of.all.time!.

Some.people.do.not.realize.the.connection.between.Malachi.4.and.the.rest.of.the.scriptures,.
especially.those.who.have.been.programmed.the.most...Malachi.4.IS.for.our.day..make.no.
mistake...
.
Remember.the."idol".that.Daniel.saw.in.Daniel.2,.which.was.Babylon..the.other.kingdom...The.
idol.was.not.simply.set.in.one.generation...King.Nebuchadnezzar.was.just.the."head,".remember?..
Each.section.of.the.idol's.body.represented.another.kingdom,.descending.down.through.time,.
from.the.head.down.to.the.feet...It.was.a."slice.of.time,".each.section.representing.an."age.".
.
The.Kingdom.of.Heaven.is.much.the.same!..While.the.idol.Daniel.saw.in.Nebuchadnezzar's.dream.
represented.Babylon,.the.Kingdom.of.Heaven.is.the.Kingdom.of.God...Christ.was.the.head,.not.
Nebuchadnezzar,.and.the.work.that.Christ.did.on.the.cross.was.the.foundation,.the.cornerstone,.
to.that.kingdom!.
.
John.the.Baptist.came.proclaiming,."The.Kindom.of.Heaven.is.at.hand,".and.many.think.that.this.
was.a.failed.prophecy..because.they.try.to.limit.God.to.our.time.and.our.space...But.Christ.was.
just.the.head.of.the.kingdom..WE.are.the.body!..
.
Malachi. 4. tells. of. the. coming. Kingdom,. and. tells. us. about. the. "coiled. springs.". . The. arrogant.
Pharisees.were.no.match.for.the.Truth.that.Christ.gave.to.the.early.Christians,.the."coiled.springs".
for.their.time...
.
Those.who.followed.Christ.were.also.the.same.spring.when.they.were.bound.by.the.extra\biblical.
teachings.of.the.Scribes.and.Pharisees...They.believed.in.God,.but.had.all.of.these.extra.things.
that.bound.their.springs.into.tight.coils...They.were.broken,.bruised,.wounded,.just.like.we.were...
They.needed.healing..
.
Christ.came.and.the.evildoers.were.stubble.under.His.feet...He.was.the.Sun.of.Righteousness,.
and.He.had.healing.under.His.wings.for.those.coiled.springs...He.did.not.tread.down.the.wicked.
for.them,.though..he.was.the.perfect.example.of.a.what.a.pastor.SHOULD.be...A.pastor.does.
not.keep.their.springs.coiled.in.the.pews,.he.nourishes.them.to.health.so.that.they.can.stand.for.
themselves...The.people.are.not.supposed.to.look.to.the.pastor.as.their.savior..they.are.to.look.
to.Jesus.Christ!..The."House.of.Prayer".should.be.the."House.of.the.Sick,".and.the.pastor.should.
be.the.doctor.giving.the.people.medicine.to.uncoil!.
.
Listen.to.the.example.Malachi.gives.of.the."coiled.springs".when.the.Kingdom.of.Heaven.was.
established:.."You.shall.go.out.leaping.like.calves.from.the.stall...And.you.shall.tread.down.the.
wicked,.for.they.will.be.ashes.under.the.soles.of.your.feet,.on.the.day.when.I.act,.says.the.Lord.
of.hosts."..Malachi.4.

happen.all.through.the.Kingdom.of.Heaven,.from.the.Body.of.Christ,.until.Christ.returns.to.sit.on.
the.throne.of.His.Kingdom...Until.He.returns,.we.will.tread.down.the.wicked..not.with.battle.
armor.and.sword,.but.armed.with.the.Word.of.God!.
.
We.should.be.excited.to.be.uncoiled,.bouncing.around.to.tell.others.of.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ!..
We.should.be.set.on.fire.for.God,.unable.to.rest.until.the.whole.world.knows.that.Jesus.died.for.
our.sin!..We.should.be.excited.to.speak.to.those.in.Islam.to.let.them.know.that.Christ.set.us.free.

Luke.10:.

with.the.people!..The.food.was.an.outward.expression..not.an.inward.change!..Love,.not.Law!.

told. another. person. that. they. no. longer. need. to. believe. in. a. false. prophet. to. be. a. Christian!..

After.the.Azusa.Street.Revival.and.when.the.Pentecostal.movement.was.in.full.swing,.the."Health.
and.Wealth.Gospel".went.forward.with.ministers.and.evangelist.drawing.great.crowds.with.signs.

the.scripture.of."these.signs.shall.follow.them.that.believe".and.put.their.faith.into.action..

of.the.Spirit,.and.that.Spirit.showed.the.fruits.of.the.spirit.which.are.love,.joy,.peace,.forbearance,.
kindness,.goodness,.faithfulness,.gentleness.and.self\control..
.
But.over.time,.some.of.these.fruits.of.the.spirit.started.dropping.off.the.scene,.starting.with."self\

The. biblical. evidence. of. the. kind. of. tree. is. looking. at. the. fruits. it. bore,. but. the. Pentecostal.

"the.fruit.of.the.Spirit."..Some.would.choose.healing,.some.would.choose.other.miracles,.but.

.

that.I.feel.about.MY.children...It.is.without.boundaries!..It.is.love.beyond.measure,.unmerited.for.
them..simply.because.they.are.my.sons!.

us!.

These. Pentecostal. ministers. travelled. from. town. to. town,. using. the. same. stage. acts. as. they.
visited.each.city...The.people.would.sing,.some.gospel.singers.would.sing,.the.minister.would.
preach. hell. fire. and. brimstone. into. a. calculated. fear. of. eternal. separation,. and. then. start.
attacking.the.faith.of.the.congregations...This."evidence".or."new.fruit".of.the.Spirit.should.be.

they.cut.their.hair...Maybe.they.didn't.wear.the.Pentecostal.dress.code...Makeup,.music,.and.
more..all.outward.things.that.had.very.little.to.do.with.the.heart...Again,.the.fruits.of.the.Spirit.

Denying$The$Great$Commission$
.
There.are.many.things.about.the.ministry.of.William.Marrion.Branham.that.I.find.shocking.as.I.
review. them. to. compare. with. Bible. scriptures,. historical. accounts,. and. Branham's. own.
contradictions.. . You'll. find. these. things. mentioned. on. many. of. the. apologetic. sites. with. long.
discussion.threads,.supporters.of.the.cult.arguing.against.the.mounting.pile.of.evidence,.which.
has.no.supportive.argument..
.
I.find.those.arguments.interesting,.because.many.of.the.findings.against.the.cult.are.final.and.
absolute...Like.elementary.math,.they.are.arguing.that.two.plus.two.must.equal.seven,.because.
Branham.claimed.seven.to.be.a."spiritual".number..
.
But.there.is.one.topic.that.you.won't.find.many.cult.members.discussing...They.know.in.their.
hearts.that.this.is.a.problem,.one.that.denies.the.very.core.of.Christianity!..Not.only.that,.to.admit.
what.is.presented.before.them,.Branham's.soul.would.be.given.the.plagues.listed.in.the.Book.of.
Revelation!.
.
The.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ.is.a.very.simple.teaching...All.the.books.in.the.Bible.point.to.the.Gospel,.
all.telling.the.story...The.prophets.pointed.to.it,.foretelling.of.the.coming.Messiah...The.stories.in.
the.Old.Testament.were.representations.of.the.events.that.would.come,.and.even.the.idolatry.
that.the.Children.of.Israel.continually.practiced.is.a.major.part.of.the.story..
.
Abraham.was.given.a.promise...The.seed.of.Abraham.would.be.as.the.sands.of.the.sea,.such.a.
great.number.that.only.God.would.be.able.to.count...Those.that.were.taught.the."little.bride".
theology.of.that.day,.separating.themselves.from.the.Children.of.Israel,.were.cut.off.from.the.
nation,.and.were.not.part.of.the.lineage.of.Abraham...
.
The.people.wanted.to.practice.works\righteous.faith,.and.so.they.begged.Moses.to.return.up.the.
mountain.and.receive.the.Mosaic.Law,.the.things.that.they.must.uphold.to.be.saved.by.their.own.
power...And.they.tried.to.save.themselves,.but.failed..
.
First.they.started.with.judges,.people.who.were.the.decision.makers.for.the.people...These.judges.
were.given.authority,.but.many.times.would.fall.into.corruption...The.people.who.trusted.them.
were.led.astray,.and.over.time,.the.people.realized.that.placing.a.single.man.(or.woman).into.
power.was.a.very.bad.idea..
.
As.the.people.continued.to.fail,.God.would.send.a.prophet...Under.the.Old.Covenant,.salvation.
rested.upon.the.shoulders.of.the.people,.and.therefore.God.must.speak.through.those.same.
people...A.prophet.would.rise,.remind.them.that.they.had.fallen.into.idolatry,.and.give.them.
warning.that.they.must.repent.or.perish,.and.set.the.people.back.on.track..
.

www.seekyethetruth.com.

137.

But.we.find.that.mankind.cannot.save.themselves...A.single.appointed."decision.maker".will.not.
bring.salvation...Even.the.voice.of.the.prophet,.coming.directly.from.God,.did.not.bring.salvation...
Time.after.time,.these.people.fell.back.into.idolatry..
.
But. the. Heavenly. Father. was. looking. down. on. His. children,. and. continued. to. love. them.. . His.
punishment.was.great.for.their.sin,.and.his.anger.was.kindled.when.they.tried.to.replace.him.
with.other.gods..
.
The.people.had.broken.the.Covenant,.unable.to.lift.up.their.part.of.the.bargain...The.prophets.
started.to.prophesy.that.a.Messiah.would.come,.one.who.would.restore.them.back.to.the.original.
faith. of. the. fathers. . the. faith. that. did. not. require. "works". for. salvation.. . They. were. being.
restored.back.to.the.faith.of.father.Abraham,.who.lived.under.the.Grace.of.the.Father..
.
God's. covenant. with. Abraham. was. an. everlasting. covenant.. . The. Old. Covenant. Law. given. by.
Moses.was.not.permanent,.and.was.a.hindrance.towards.fulfilling.the.Abrahamic.covenant...If.
the.Old.Covenant.would.have.continued,.by.Law.God.would.have.wiped.the.children.of.Israel.
from.the.face.of.the.earth...
.
They.had.broken.the.Covenant,.and.they.deserved.punishment...That.punishment.was.death!.
.
But.God.loved.His.children...God.loved.Abraham...And.God.keeps.His.promises...
.
He.promised.Abraham.that.his.seed.would.be.a.multitude.without.number,.and.he.loved.those.
who.were.destined.to.perish...So.God.sent.His.only.Son,.Jesus.Christ,.to.die...Christ.would.pay.the.
penalty.for.their.sin..pay.the.price.of.the.Old.Covenant..
.
Christ.knew.his.destiny...He.prayed.to.the.Father.that.if.there.was.any.other.way,.let.the."cup.
pass.from.Him."..But.there.was.no.other.way;.either.Christ.pay.the.ultimate.penalty,.or.mankind.
would.perish..
.
Christ.also.knew.that.the.people.would.feel.abandoned.and.alone.after.He.paid.the.price...He.
knew.that.his.leaving.would.cause.many.good.people.to.fall...And.he.knew.that.even.though.their.
penalty.was.paid.in.full,.they.would.need.a.Helper.and.a.Guide..
.
God.no.longer.spoke.through.prophets.to.guide.the.children.of.Israel.in.their.ways...There.were.
many.with.the.gift.of.prophecy,.but.Christ.knew.that.when.the.price.was.paid,.and.the.weight.of.
burden.was.lifted.from.the.shoulders.of.the.people,.the.people.would.receive.their.instruction.
directly.from.God.and.not.man..
.
So.He.promised.to.send.His.Holy.Spirit.to.the.people...This.was.a.Gift,.one.that.would.lead.them.
and.guide.them.until.he.returned.to.claim.them.as.His.Bride..
.
Christ.bore.the.pain.of.their.sin.on.the.cross...With.each.strike.of.the.hammer.into.the.nail,.our.
sins.were.lifted.and.carried.from.us.never.to.be.remembered...

.
Then,.as.it.was.finished,.He.went.to.conquer.death,.hell,.and.the.grave...No.longer.would.we.be.
required.to.die.for.the.sins.of.our.fathers...Our.hearts.were.brought.back.to.the.original.faith,.the.
faith.of.Abraham..
.
This.was.BIG.NEWS!..The.Bible.calls.it.GOOD.NEWS..the.word."gospel".literally.translated.means.
"good.news."..It.is.the.Good.News.that.Jesus.Christ.paid.the.penalty.to.restore.the.people.back.
into.favor.with.the.Father!.
.
But.then.Christ.did.what.Satan.has.tried.to.stop.since.that.very.day.that.He.arose...Christ.gave.us.
the.Great.Commission..the.commission.to.make.believers.in.all.nations!.

are.now.heirs.to.the.kingdom!.
.
Matthew.28.gives.the.words.of.Christ.as.He.gives.the.Great.Commission:.
.
Then.the.eleven.disciples.went.to.Galilee,.to.the.mountain.where.Jesus.had.told.them.to.go...
When.they.saw.him,.they.worshiped.him;.but.some.doubted...Then.Jesus.came.to.them.and.said,.
"All.authority.in.heaven.and.on.earth.has.been.given.to.me...Therefore.go.and.make.disciples.of.
all.nations,.baptizing.them.in.the.name.of.the.Father.and.of.the.Son.and.of.the.Holy.Spirit,.and.

.
You.won't.find.pastors.in.the.cult.that.will.defend.William.Branham's.ripping.apart.of.the.Great.

"unbelief,". which. was. an. attack. directly. against. the. disciples.. . Yet. we. find. that. the. disciples.

knew. have. avoided. the. puzzle. altogether. . abandoning. our. friendship. and. avoiding. us.
completely...
.
I. recently. watched. as. a. close. friend's. wife. started. entering. a. restaurant. while. he. was. lagging.
behind...I.got.a.bit.of.a.chuckle,.because.I.knew.this.man.well,.and.he.lagged.behind.quite.often...
.
I.was.preparing.to.stand.and.wave.to.them,.moving.towards.the.edge.of.my.seat.to.greet.them.
as.they.entered.into.the.restaurant...But.my.movement.caught.her.eye..
.
She.pointed.at.me,.spoke.something.to.him,.and.they.both.backed.out.the.door,.got.in.their.
vehicle,.and.fled.the.parking.lot.like.it.was.on.fire!.
.
Living.in.the."devil's.den",.Jeffersonville,.Indiana,.this.is.a.common.occurrence...Frequently.in.a.
restaurant,.grocery.store,.and.even.auto.repair.shop,.people.that.we.would.have.taken.a.bullet.
for.will.show.the.true.evil.nature.of.a.religious.cult.that.has.strayed.from.the.Love.of.Christ...
.
Those.that.can't.run.from.us.will.turn.their.heads.toward.the.ground,.pretending.that.they.do.
not.see.or.hear.us...My.wife.recently.met.one.face.to.face.in.a.grocery.store,.and.the.poor.lady.
did.not.have.time.to.bow.her.head..so.she.stood.there.with.a.puzzled.look.on.her.face,.eyes.
moving.back.and.forth.rapidly,.thinking."WHAT.DO.I.DO?..WHAT.DO.I.DO?".

.
I.told.my.wife.not.to.let.it.get.her.down...I.mean,.really!..How.often.in.God's.service.to.you.have.
an.entire.group.of.hundreds.who.bow.down.as.you.see.them!..We.are.like.KINGS!.
.
You.see,.for.those.that.know.us.personally,.they.realize.that.we.have.not.left.the.love.of.Christ...
They.know.that.we.had.no.intention.of.leaving.for.the.extra\biblical.rules.imposed.by.the.cult.
leader,.and.that.we.loved.our.cult.life.just.as.much.as.they.did..if.not.more..
.
They.have.one.single.objection.to.us:..We.broke.their.long.lines.of.tradition..
.
When. the. Pentecostal. movement. got. into. full. swing,. and. branches. of. the. Pentecostal. faith.
started.growing.from.the.trunk,.there.were.many."non\denominational".churches.that.started.
springing. up. across. the. nation.. . Some. of. these. independent,. fundamental. churches. have.
outreach.ministries,.and.you.can.now.find."non\denominational".churches.in.several.countries.
.especially.in.developing.nations..
.
The.very.core.of.the.idea.of.a."non\denominational".church.seems.to.have.the.correct.idea:..Your.
denomination.of.faith.will.not.save.you...Joining.a.church.will.not.save.you,.belonging.to.a.group.
of.people.will.not.save.you,.absolutely.NOTHING.will.save.you.except.the.grace.that.Jesus.Christ.
has.given.us.through.faith.in.Him..
.
So. initially,. these. independent. churches. will. promote. themselves. as. not. being. "bound. by.
denominational.boundaries."..All.are.welcome!..There.is.not.Baptist,.Methodist,.or.even.Catholic.
in.God's.eyes..we.are.God's.Children...The.Church.of.Jesus.Christ.has.no.divisions;.the.Body.of.
Christ.is.made.from.men.and.women.from.all.nations,.races,.and.churches..
.
The.very.beginning.of.William.Branham's.ministry.was.much.the.same...Some.of.the.old\timers.
in.the.cult.are.very.upset.with.the.way.that.the.cult.has.turned.out,.because.Branham.promoted.
this.idea.when.he.started.his.ministry...They'll.repeat.Branham's."all.are.welcome".statement:."If.
they.draw.you.out.of.their.circle,.draw.a.bigger.circle.and.draw.them.back.in!".
.
But.tradition.has.set.in,.and.the.many.of.us.that.are.now.leaving.the.cult.are.starting.to.realize.
that.nobody.is.drawing.bigger.circles!.
.
And.I.personally.am.finding.that.life.really.is.backwards...Not.just.because.people.quit.drawing.
circles. of. friendship,. but. because. the. new. friends. I. am. finding. are. powerful. friendships. that.
fellowship.around.Christ..not.something.that.happened.fifty.years.ago!..Our.friendship.is.fresh.
and.new,.alive.and.growing..not.dwindling.down.to.a.glimmer.of.the.past..
.
I.have.new.friends.now.that.are.still.inside.the.cult.of.William.Branham...Many.of.them.know.the.
cult.theology.does.not.match.the.bible,.and.some.of.them.have.known.for.years.that.Branham.
had.failed.prophecies..

It.makes.for.an.interesting.conversation,.because.while.sitting.in.a.pew.listening.to.things.that.
they.know.are.not.true,.they.also.are.bound.by.their.tradition...
.
When. these. independent. "non\denominational". churches. begin,. their. initial. cause. is. growth...
They.pull.in.people.from.their.own.tradition,.telling.them.that.their.own.traditions.are.making.
them.grow.stagnant...The.new.church.grows,.the.seats.are.filled,.and.everybody.is.happy.in.their.
new.church..
.
Many. new. ideas. are. formed,. many. of. which. are. based. on. the. ideologies. of. multiple.
denominations...These.ideas.are.blended.together,.forming.new.doctrines.and.teachings...Those.
teachings.are.preached.repeatedly,.and.become.the.ideas.that.make.them.a.separate.people..
.
What.they.do.not.realize.is.that.over.time,.they.have.become.the.very.thing.they.opposed...They.
have.created.a.new.denomination.of.faith.based.on.a.new.tradition..
.
A. denomination. is. nothing. more. than. a. set. of. values. commonly. agreed. upon. by. a. group. of.
people,. ideas. that. make. them. different. from. another. group.. . These. "non\denominational.
churches,".over.time,.become.miniature.denominations..
.
But.their.initial.growth.is.limited...It.can.only.fill.the.four.walls.of.a.building...And.a.single.church.
of.people.does.not.technically.produce.a.denomination..it.is.not.considered.such.until.there.is.
a.large.number.to.be.counted..
.
Like.the.two.to.four.million.people.denominated.into.the.cult.of.William.Marrion.Branham..
.
Over.time,.these.new.independent.churches.find.ways.to.become.more.independent...As.they.
grow,.they.become.proud.in.their.new.denomination...That.separating.line.between.what.they.
once.were.and.what.they.have.now.become.is.no.longer.a.circle;.it.is.a.line.in.the.sand..
.
When.the.denomination.has.grown.to.maturity,.that.line.in.the.sand.becomes.four.lines,.and.
those.four.lines.are.to.keep.people.in..not.keep.people.out...Most.of.them.do.not.have.strong.
lines. of. outreach. and. growth,. because. they. were. formed. from. an. independent,. separated.
people...The.years.and.years.of.growth.behind.the.other.denominations.are.not.found.in.the.new.
denomination..so.in.order.to.survive,.they.must.do.more.to.retain.the.people...
.
The.only.way.this.can.be.accomplished.is.to.start.speaking.evil.of.those.in.other.churches...The.
other.churches.must.become.the.enemy,.and.the."outreach.programs".then.become."internal.
Gestapo."..
.
For.those.who.have.examined.the.ministry.of.William.Branham.from.start.to.finish,.they.have.
realized. and. noticed. this. change.. . The. early. tapes. were. filled. with. a. message. that. "all. are.
welcome,".but.towards.the.end.are.filled.with.a.message.that."everyone.else.has.taken.the.Mark.
of.the.Beast."..What.began.as.an.open.circle.ended.with.a.line.in.the.sand..

But.the.real.problem.is.that.over.time,.the.real.purpose.behind.their.forming.a.new.church.is.long.
forgotten:..The.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ..
.
The.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ.is.a.story.against.human.tradition...Jesus.asked.in.Matthew.15:."Why.
do.you.break.the.commandment.of.God.for.the.sake.of.your.tradition?".
.
And. just. as. the. Pharisees. had. forgotten. the. reason. for. the. Law. through. repetition. of. their.
tradition,. these. new. denominations. have. forgotten. the. reason. for. the. Gospel. of. Jesus. Christ.
through.their.own.tradition..
.
The.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ.was.Good.News.to.everyone,.but.especially.to.the.Gentiles...Christ.
offered. salvation. to. everyone. who. believed. on. his. name. . Jew. and. Gentile. alike.. . Men. and.
women.that.were.filled.with.the.traditions.of.idolatry..which.integrated.unspeakable.evil.into.
their.temple.worship..were.now.asked.to.sit.at.the.table.with.those.who.had.lived.under.and.
followed.the.Mosaic.Law...
.
The.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ.is.about.drawing.bigger.circles,.bringing.in.more.and.more.people...It.
is.about.telling.others.about.the.love.and.mercy.of.Christ,.how.He.came.to.save.the.lost.and.dying.
world..
.
And.it.is.not.about.drawing.lines.in.the.sand.to.keep.your.denomination.alive.from.the.inside...It.
is.about.spreading.seed,.and.growing.the.Body.of.Christ.from.the.outside..
.
When.the.early.disciples.began.spreading.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ,.it.was.a.much.different.time.
and.place...Satan.had.a.hand.of.power.over.the.land.because.the.Children.of.Israel.had.broken.
and. abandoned. the. Covenant.. . Temple. worship. of. the. Ba'als. was. dominating. the. earth,. and.
demons.were.everywhere..
.
The. Gospel. speaks. of. men. and. women. casting. out. demons. in. the. name. of. Jesus. Christ. .
something. that. most. Christians. today. will. never. see.. . Satan. was. lifted. into. authority,. and. his.
demons.were.openly.turning.hearts.and.minds.into.his.slaves...
.
Malachi. 4. foretells. the. time. when. God. would. take. back. control,. and. the. enemy. would. be.
trampled...Many.people.do.not.realize.how.powerful.this.event.really.was..
.
Today,.when.we.pray.for.someone.because.the.enemy.is.tempting.them,.we.find.that.it.is.much,.
much.different...The.early.Christians.describe.what.it.looks.like.when.a.demon.flees..something.
that.almost.none.of.us.have.witnessed...They.describe.the.demon.fleeing.into.animals,.causing.
convulsions,.and.creating.a.visible,.noticeable.event.when.a.demon.leaps.out.of.a.human.when.
it.hears.the.name.of.Jesus.Christ..
.
When.the.early.Christians.went.out,.Jesus.said.that.He.saw.Satan.fall.from.the.heavens.as.they.
went.out.and.trampled.over.the.demons..

The.Body.of.Christ.was.established,.and.Christ.was.the.Head.of.that.Body..
.
While.many.confused.by.the.false.teaching.of.William.Branham.confuse.this.passage,.Ezekiel.17.
describes.exactly.what.happened,.long.before.Malachi.prophesied.about.the.calves.leaping.from.
the.stall.over.the.ashes.of.the.wicked.demons..
.
Because.of.Branham's.teaching,.the.cult.has.the.false.idea.that.all.prophecy.of.Old.Testament.
prophets.were.peering.into.the.future.as.if.they.had.crystal.balls...But.that.statement.is.not.only.
false,.it.is.exactly.backwards...Most.of.the.prophets.were.speaking.the.voice.of.God.against.events.
that.already.had.taken.place...Though.many.of.them.ended.with.a.vision.of.the.coming.Messiah,.
the.target.of.the.prophecy.was.usually.against.those.who.had.fallen.into.idolatry...Those.that.
created."lines.in.the.sand.".
.
.
Branham.falsely.taught.that.the."prophets.were.likened.to.eagles,".but.listen.to.WHO.these.two.
eagles.were!.
.
Ezekiel.saw.a.vision.of.two.eagles,.both.carrying.a.twig.in.its.mouth.and.planting.it...The.first.one.
described.Babylon.and.king.Nebuchadnezzar...The."eagle".was.Nebuchadnezzar,.and.he.was.a.
very. beautiful. eagle. with. many. colors.. . Coincidentally,. this. was. the. emblem. used. by. Babylon.
worship...
.
Nebuchadnezzar.had.uprooted.the.Children.of.Israel,.and.was.trying.to.assimilate.them.into.his.
cult.worship...The.Children.of.God,.the.chosen.people.of.the.Lord,.were.taken.from.their.true.
faith.to.be.converted.into.idolatry..
.
If.you.read.down.in.the.chapter.a.bit,.you'll.find.that.the.scriptures.give.the.answer.as.to.who.this.
prophecy.was.about:.
.
Then.the.word.of.the.Lord.came.to.me:."Say.now.to.the.rebellious.house,.Do.you.not.know.what.
these.things.mean?.Tell.them,.behold,.the.king.of.Babylon.came.to.Jerusalem,.and.took.her.king.
and.her.princes.and.brought.them.to.him.to.Babylon..
.
Ezekiel.17.
.
But.there.was.another.Eagle...And.that.Eagle.carried.another.branch...It.wasn't.the.multi\colored.
eagle.of.Babylon,.this.Eagle.was.God.himself..
.
He.carried.His.branch.to.Mount.Zion,.and.planted.it.so.that.it.would.grow.and.produce.fruit.from.
the.OUTSIDE..not.the.INSIDE...And.it.was.not.just.for.the."little.eagles,".as.we.have.been.taught,.
this.Twig.would.produce.branches.that.would.support.all.KINDS.of.birds!.
.
Thus.says.the.Lord.God:."I.myself.will.take.a.sprig.from.the.lofty.top.of.the.cedar.and.will.set.it.
out..I.will.break.off.from.the.topmost.of.its.young.twigs.a.tender.one,.and.I.myself.will.plant.it.on.

a. high. and. lofty. mountain.. . On. the. mountain. height. of. Israel. will. I. plant. it,. that. it. may. bear.
branches.and.produce.fruit.and.become.a.noble.cedar..And.under.it.will.dwell.every.kind.of.bird;.
in.the.shade.of.its.branches.birds.of.every.sort.will.nest...And.all.the.trees.of.the.field.shall.know.
that.I.am.the.Lord;.I.bring.low.the.high.tree,.and.make.high.the.low.tree,.dry.up.the.green.tree,.
and.make.the.dry.tree.flourish..I.am.the.Lord;.I.have.spoken,.and.I.will.do.it..
.
Ezekiel.17.
.
That.Eagle.was.God...And.that."twig".was.Christ...It.wasn't.some.prophet.or.messenger...It.wasn't.
some.new.denomination.that.would.form.and.draw.lines.in.the.sand.to.keep.others.out...
.
This.was.Jesus.Christ,.the.Son.of.the.Living.God,.the.One.who.offered.salvation.to.ALL.who.would.
believe.on.His.Name...
.
Under.Christ,.there.are.no.denominational.barriers..those.barriers.are.walls.that.we.have.setup.
ourselves...But.under.Christ,.there.are.real.barriers..barriers.to.prevent.false.teaching..
.
As.a.false.leader.rises.with.false.teaching,.snatching.helpless.souls.out.of.their.place.in.the.Body.
of.Christ.to.create.his.own."little.bride,".they.build.their.barriers...God.does.not.even.have.to.
build.barriers.to.keep.these.out..you.will.notice.that.they.eventually.build.their.own.barriers...
They.sever.themselves.from.the.Body.of.Christ..
.
They.reinforce.the.barriers.by.adding.rules.and.regulations,.many.of.which.are.not.found.in.the.
Bible. . neither. in. the. Old. Covenant. of. Law. that. Paul. called. "obsolete,". or. under. the. New.
Covenant. of. Grace.. . They. reinforce. with. visible. barriers,. creating. rules. based. on. outward.
appearance.so.that.their.new.denomination.can.look.at.the.Body.of.Christ.and.SEE.the.difference!.
.
As.Christians,.we.should.ask.ourselves.the.very.same.thing.that.Paul.asked.the.early.church..
after.they.had.been.freed.from.the.demons:.
.
"If.with.Christ.you.died.to.the.elemental.spirits.of.the.world,.why,.as.if.you.were.still.alive.in.the.
world,.do.you.submit.to.regulations"Do.not.handle,.Do.not.taste,.Do.not.touch".(referring.to.
things. that. all. perish. as. they. are. used)according. to. human. precepts. [traditions]. and.
teachings?..These.have.indeed.an.appearance.of.wisdom.in.promoting.self\made.religion.and.
asceticism.and.severity.to.the.body,.but.they.are.of.no.value.in.stopping.the.indulgence.of.the.
flesh."..Colossians.2.

Light$In$The$Wilderness$
.
Acts.9.is.one.of.my.favorite.chapters.in.the.Bible...It.is.this.single.chapter.that.brings.hope.of.
salvation.to.any.who.are.reminded.of.their.past.sins.covered.under.the.Blood.of.Jesus.Christ...It.
is.the.perfect.example.that.the.power.of.the.cross.knows.no.boundaries...God.can.take.the.most.
violent,.cruel,.and.heartless.sinner,.wash.them.in.His.blood,.and.make.them.new.creatures.that.
are.filled.with.excitement.to.share.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ..
.
The. early. Christians. were. severely. persecuted. for. following. the. teachings. of. Christ.. . Christ's.
examples.and.actions.clearly.violated.the.Mosaic.Law,.which.was.the.code.of.conduct.required.
by.the.Jews.and.even.partially.enforced.by.Roman.soldiers...Violation.of.the.Mosaic.Law.was.
considered.Impiety,.or.lack.of.proper.respect.for.the.religious.custom.of.the.Jews..
.
When.the.new.Christians.who.once.were.bound.by.Law.started.to.experience.freedom.from.that.
Law,.their.freedom.was.in.the.eyes.of.God..not.the.eyes.of.their.fellow.Jews...With.each.new.
freedom.came.punishment.when.observed.by.others,.even.by.men.and.women.they.once.knew.
and.held.dear...Depending.upon.the.Law.that.was.breached,.the.punishment.could.be.severe,.
even.death..
.
But.Christ,.by.example,.taught.the.early.church.how.to.live.their.lives.by.Love.instead.of.Law...
Christ.came.and.lived.a.perfect.life.among.men.to.give.us.a.living.example,.but.that.example.was.
not.bound.by.the.requirements.of.Mosaic.Law..
.
Under.the.Law.of.Moses,.an.adulteress.was.to.be.stoned.for.her.impurity...But.under.the.law.of.
forgiveness,.Christ.set.the.adulteress.at.the.well.free,.even.though.she.had.been.with.several.
men...
.
There.was.a.difference.in.the.Law.of.Love.as.compared.to.the.Law.of.Moses...It.is.a.difference.
that.many.Christians.of.today.do.not.see.or.understand:..The.focus.of.Christ's.law.of.Grace.was.
the.soul,.while.the.focus.of.the.Law.of.Moses.was.the.physical.body...
.
Christ's.teaching.and."untangling.the.scriptures".for.the.people.was.seen.as.a.threat.to.the.Scribes.
and.the.Pharisees...The.priesthood.was.descended.through.the.Levites,.not.the.tribe.of.Judah.
that.brought.the.Messiah...According.to.Mosaic.Law,.the.Levitical.priesthood.was.established.
pure.and.holy,.from.the.cleansing.of.hands.to.the.practices.of.internal."cleanliness."..
.
But.Christ.came.teaching.others.to.serve,.not.to.be.served...He.taught.that.the.lowest.among.
them.was.the.greatest.in.the.kingdom.of.heaven...The.chores.most.despised.by.the.people..
jobs. that. the. priesthood. would. never. do,. such. as. washing. feet. . were. the. ones. that. Christ.
praised.the.most..
.

150.

By.example,.Christ.washed.his.disciples.feet...Though.some.churches.of.today.have.turned.this.
into.useless.tradition,.the.message.Christ.was.relaying.to.his.disciples.was.that.they.were.there.
to.serve.the.people..no.matter.how.filthy.or.how.dirty.the.job.might.be..
.
The.Scribes.and.Pharisees.tried.to.stop.this.threat.with.personal.attack...Leviticus.10.tells.how.
the. priesthood. should. refrain. from. wine. or. strong. drink. when. administering. the. Law. to. the.
people.in.the.tents,.and.that.tradition.was.held.throughout.time..
.
But.Christ.loved.wine...He.enjoyed.life.without.the.Law.and.restrictions.that.did.not.produce.
Love,.and.drinking.wine.was.one.of.those.restrictions...The.Pharisees.attacked.Jesus,.publicly.
denouncing.him.for.being.a."wine.bibber.".
.
Their.personal.attacks.had.little.effect.on.the.early.Christians.who.had.experienced.a.new.life.
through.the.teaching.of.Christ...The.people.could.very.easily.see.and.understand.that.while.the.
attacks.were.bred.from.hatred,.Christ.was.giving.them.love.and.internal.satisfaction...The.clean.
hands.of.the.priests.would.never.match.the.clean.hearts.that.Christ.was.giving.the.people..
.
Paul.was.among.those.filled.with.hate...He.was.very.familiar.with.the.Mosaic.Law,.and.persecuted.
the. early. church. in. violation. of. that. Law.. . He. was. involved. with. the. stoning. of. Stephen,. a.
punishment.that.ended.with.death..
.
We.know.very.little.of.Paul's.prior.life.with.the.exception.of.the.descriptions.that.he.gives.us,.but.
we.do.know.that.it.was.not.a.life.filled.with.the.love.that.Christ.taught...Paul.had.a.life.undeserving.
of.the.Gospel.according.to.the.eyes.of.men...In.fact,.many.churches.today.would.turn.Paul.from.
their.door,.having.remembered.his.anger.and.hatred.towards.those.who.did.not.strictly.adhere.
to.the.Mosaic.Law..
.
But.that.is.why.I.love.this.chapter...As.humans,.we.are.born.into.sin...We.naturally.are.destined.
to.fail...We.are.all.undeserving.of.the.Gospel,.and.there.is.nothing.we.can.do.by.ourselves.to.
make.ourselves.worthy..
.
Studying.the.scriptures,.especially.the.words.of.Paul.after.his.conversion,.we.find.that.this.was.
the.primary.purpose.of.the.Mosaic.Law...It.had.failed...This.entire.chapter.of.history.for.the.Jews.
was.to.set.an.example.for.the.rest.of.mankind,.for.the.future.generations.to.come,.that.works\
righteous.faith.will.never.save...
.
Many.times.as.parents,.we.teach.our.children.the.correct.way.by.first.showing.them.an.example.
of.the.incorrect.way..."Don't.tie.your.shoelaces.like.THIS,.it.won't.work...Start.by.tying.them.like.
THIS.".."Don't.make.your.bed.like.THIS,.pull.the.cookie.crumbs.out.from.under.your.pillow.first.
like.THIS.".
.
As.a.whole,.the.Bible.is.this.type.of.example...Our.Heavenly.Father.is.instructing.us.how.to.live.
our. lives,. and. he. starts. with. the. first. half. describing. what. NOT. to. do.. . He. shows. us. how. the.

When.Christ.came,.he.magnified.the.Law..put.it.under.a.magnifying.glass.for.inspection...The.
people.that.he.taught.were.His.pupils,.letting.them.peer.through.the.glass.at.the.old.Mosaic.Law,.
pointing.out.the.many.failures...It.is.as.if.he.were.standing.in.a.classroom,.saying,."Now.class,.this.
is.not.the.way.that.will.lead.you.to.love.of.your.fellow.man...All.of.these.laws.are.fulfilled.in.two.
single.commandments:..Love.the.Lord.thy.God.with.all.your.heart.and.mind.and.soul,.and.love.
your.neighbor.BETTER.than.you.love.yourselves.".
.
But.again,.Paul.knew.nothing.of.that.teaching...He.did.not.know.the.Love.that.Christ.poured.out.
into.his.students...In.fact,.in.the.example.we.just.gave,.Paul.would.be.the.student.bringing.a.bomb.
into. class,. setting. it. off. to. kill. the. rest. of. the. students,. all. while. standing. behind. the. bushes.
laughing...He.was.the.person.that.the.other.students.should.absolutely.hate.with.pure.devotion..
.
But.Christ.did.not.look.to.the.things.that.Paul.had.done...He.does.not.look.at.the.outward.things,.
remember?..Christ.looks.at.the.heart...And.what.looks.like.a.heart.of.stone.to.us.looks.completely.
different.in.the.eyes.of.God...
.
These.are.the.types.of.people.that.God.loves.to.use!..
.
I.like.to.think.that.this.is.God's.sense.of.humor...Let's.take.the.worst.example.among.you,.the.one.
that.every.single.one.of.you.would.LOVE.TO.KILL,.the.one.that.causes.you.to.have.nightmares.in.
your.sleep,.and.let.him.LEAD.YOU!..In.the.eyes.of.Hollywood,.this.is.what.you.call.situational.
comedy!.
.
Listen.how.Acts.Chapter.9.begins:.
.
"But.Saul,.still.breathing.threats.and.murder.against.the.disciples.of.the.Lord,.went.to.the.high.
priest.and.asked.him.for.letters.to.the.synagogues.at.Damascus,.so.that.if.he.found.any.belonging.
to.the.Way,.men.or.women,.he.might.bring.them.bound.to.Jerusalem.".
.
Paul.was.a.bounty.hunter!..He.got.his.papers.to.start.collecting.the.Christians!..Even.worse,.he.
didn't.do.this.for.the.money..he.was.fuming.mad,.breathing.threats.and.murder.against.these.
new.disciples!.
.
"Now.as.he.went.on.his.way,.he.approached.Damascus,.and.suddenly.a.light.from.heaven.shone.
around.him...And.falling.to.the.ground.he.heard.a.voice.saying.to.him,."Saul,.Saul,.why.are.you.
persecuting.me?"..And.he.said,."Who.are.you,.Lord?".And.he.said,."I.am.Jesus,.whom.you.are.
persecuting...But.rise.and.enter.the.city,.and.you.will.be.told.what.you.are.to.do."..The.men.who.
were.traveling.with.him.stood.speechless,.hearing.the.voice.but.seeing.no.one."..

Now.I.know.what.some.of.you.are.thinking:..WHOOOAH!..Paul.saw.the."Pillar.of.Fire!"..Branham.
told.us.so!..After.Branham.had.that.photograph.of.the.florescent.light.bulb.that.looked.magical,.
Branham.tried.to.associate.this.story.with.the.poorly.captured.photo..
.
He.LOVED.to.use.this.chapter,.because.there.is.very.little.description.of.the.event...It.was.almost.
as.if.Branham.were.saying,."Hey.guys!..Read.THIS.one!..Don't.read.the.description.that.comes.
later.in.the.book,.because..um..well..it.gives.the.details.that.I.DON'T.want.you.to.see!.
.
Acts. 26. gives. a. better. description. of. the. Light. that. Paul. saw. in. the. wilderness;. the. light. that.
blinded.him...And.it.wasn't.a."pillar.of.fire,".this.was.DAYLIGHT,.remember?..The.Pillar.of.Fire.led.
the.Children.of.Israel.by.night,.not.by.day...And.Paul.was.not.being.led.ANYWHERE..he.was.
being.BLINDED!.
.
Literally.translated,.Acts.26.describes.this.light.from.the.heavens.like.this:.."from.heaven,.above,.
the.brightness,.of.the.sun,.having.shone.about.me,.a.light."..
.
http://interlinearbible.org/acts/26\13.htm.
.
The.word."light".is.translated.from.the.word."phos",.which.is.the.same.word.used.for."daylight."..
No.magical.fires,.no.florescent.light.bulbs,.absolutely.nothing.but.God.shining.a.VERY.BRIGHT.
light.to.blind.Paul.so.that.he.would.see.(no.pun.intended).and.understand.that.Jesus.was.the.
Christ..
.
Let's.continue:.
.
"Saul.rose.from.the.ground,.and.although.his.eyes.were.opened,.he.saw.nothing..So.they.led.him.
by. the. hand. and. brought. him. into. Damascus.. . And. for. three. days. he. was. without. sight,. and.
neither.ate.nor.drank.".
.
Those.of.you.who.have.fled.the.cult,.think.about.that.period.of.time.when.you.first.realized.that.
Branham. did. not. have. a. single. fulfilled. prophecy,. and. that. his. teachings. did. not. align. with.
scripture...How.did.you.feel?.
.
I've.had.many.describe.this.to.me,.and.it.matches.my.own.conversion.story...It.felt.like.a.blow.in.
the.stomach,.like.a.two\ton.I\beam.had.fell.from.the.Eiffel.Tower.and.landed.squarely.on.my.gut.
while.I.lay.resting.on.a.park.bench...I.couldn't.eat,.couldn't.sleep,.and.might.as.well.have.lay.there.
blinded!..What.a.waste.of.thirty\seven.years.that.I.could.have.been.reading.this.Bible.I.owned.
instead.of.listening.to.a.man.who.pretended.to.know.what.it.said!.
.
But.God.doesn't.let.you.lay.there.bruised.beyond.healing...You.may.seem.down,.unable.to.eat.or.
sleep,.winded.from.the.huge.blow.to.your.stomach,.but.God.will.always.send.someone.your.way.
to.lift.you.back.to.your.feet...
.
It.happened.to.me...It.happened.to.others.who.have.fled.the.cult...It.happened.to.Paul:.

"Now. there. was. a. disciple. at. Damascus. named. Ananias.. The. Lord. said. to. him. in. a. vision,.
"Ananias.".And.he.said,."Here.I.am,.Lord."..And.the.Lord.said.to.him,."Rise.and.go.to.the.street.
called.Straight,.and.at.the.house.of.Judas.look.for.a.man.of.Tarsus.named.Saul,.for.behold,.he.is.
praying,.and.he.has.seen.in.a.vision.a.man.named.Ananias.come.in.and.lay.his.hands.on.him.so.
that.he.might.regain.his.sight."..But.Ananias.answered,."Lord,.I.have.heard.from.many.about.this.
man,.how.much.evil.he.has.done.to.your.saints.at.Jerusalem...And.here.he.has.authority.from.the.
chief.priests.to.bind.all.who.call.on.your.name.".
.
Let's.stop.right.here...How.many.of.you.across.the.world.who.are.helping.others.out.of.a.cult.and.
into.Christ.have.this.same.exact.thing.come.onto.your.minds!.."But.Lord,.I.remember.this.man.
excommunicating.even.his.OWN.FAMILY.because.they.simply.QUESTIONED."the.prophet!".."I've.
seen.this.man.turn.his.back.on.his.own.congregation..even.when.they.were.desperately.in.need.
.simply.because.her.hair.was.cut.or.she.wore.a.pair.of.pants!".
.
We.can't.look.inside.the.soul...Only.God.can...When.God.says.to.extend.a.helping.hand,.don't.
turn.that.hand.away...That.outstretched.arm.may.be.thinking.about.suicide...Those.desperate.
eyes.may.be.looking.at.atheism.or.another.cult.even.worse.than.the.cult.of.William.Branham!..
Don't.turn.them.away,.show.them.Christ!.
.
But.the.Lord.said.to.him,."Go,.for.he.is.a.chosen.instrument.of.mine.to.carry.my.name.before.the.
Gentiles.and.kings.and.the.children.of.Israel...For.I.will.show.him.how.much.he.must.suffer.for.
the.sake.of.my.name."..So.Ananias.departed.and.entered.the.house..And.laying.his.hands.on.him.
he.said,."Brother.Saul,.the.Lord.Jesus.who.appeared.to.you.on.the.road.by.which.you.came.has.
sent.me.so.that.you.may.regain.your.sight.and.be.filled.with.the.Holy.Spirit.".
.
This. last. verse. describes. my. conversion. to. Christ.. . I. had. read. my. Bible,. multiple. times.. . I. had.
studied.the.scriptures,.but.I.had.studied.them.according.to.the.teaching.of.a.man.who.decided.
to.invent.new.scriptures.that.changed.the.meaning.of.the.others...I.had.studied.it.by.a.man.who.
combined.scriptures.to.give.false.points.of.reference.for.me,.and.those.points.of.reference.had.
turned.it.into.another.book.entirely..
.
I.can.relate.to.Paul's.experience...It's.something.that.I.hope.many.of.you.will.never.go.through...
It.takes.years.to.untangle.twisted.scriptures,.and.even.longer.to.deprogram.the.programmed.
mind...
.
Paul.describes.exactly.what.it.felt.like.when.I.suddenly.realized.that.my.Bible.was.my.Absolute,.
and.absolutely.no.man.is.above.the.Word.of.God:.

"And.immediately.something.like.scales.fell.from.his.eyes,.and.he.regained.his.sight..Then.he.rose.

Rest$In$The$Sacrifice$
.
I.received.some.feedback.from.yesterday's.post..good.questions..which.make.me.realize.that.
many. people. reading. this. are. still. trapped. in. chains. of. legalistic. works\righteous. faith. and.
asceticism...I.wanted.to.continue.the.thought.from.yesterday..
.
I.think.the.problem.is.the.way.in.which.many.have.been.falsely.taught.to.read.their.Bibles...Snip.
a.verse.here,.snip.a.verse.there,.combine.them,.and.make.a.new.Bible.with.new.meaning..
.
Having.been.taught.under.arguably.the.one.of.the.most.legalistic.sect.of.the."Message.of.the.
Hour,". I. find. the. book. of. Hebrews. to. be. filled. with. very. profound. statements.. . It's. actually. a.
refreshing.change,.living.my.life.by.the.words.of.the.Apostle.Paul,.and.the.book.of.Hebrews.is.a.
book.that.I.personally.can.relate.to..
.
Because.of.the.power.in.the.statements.in.this.book,.you.will.find.several.single.verses.that.you.
are.familiar.with,.repeated.to.solidly.back.statements.during.sermons.that.sometimes.have.very.
little.to.do.with.the.meaning.behind.those.words...And.you.may.even.find.some.entire.chapters.
that. you. are. familiar. with.. . Hebrews. is. a. well\studied. book. by. many. people.. . The. words. are.
powerful...It.was.the.message.of.faith.to.the.Jews,.those.once.bound.by.Mosaic.Law,.and.the.
writing.is.a.very.clear.and.very.concise.message.that.describes.Christ.as.the.new.High.Priest..
.
No.longer.were.the.children.of.God.to.look.to.a.man.as.their.spiritual.leader..
.
The.book.of.Hebrews.is.different.than.some.of.the.other.letters.to.the.church...The.Apostle.Paul.
typically.wrote.his.letters.with.a.salutation,.and.the.title.line,."To.The.Hebrews".is.not.found.in.
some. of. the. earliest. manuscripts.. . While. many. still. believe. that. Paul. wrote. this. letter. to. the.
Hebrews,.there.is.a.growing.understanding.that.this.may.not.be.the.case...It.is.very.possible.that.
this.was.one.of.Paul's.sermons,.transcribed.by.Luke,.and.used.to.spread.the.Good.News.that.
Christ.was.our.new.High.Priest..
.
As.the.early.church.grew,.lifting.up.leaders.into.excessive.power.was.a.common.problem,.just.as.
it. is. today.. . The. people. were. so. accustomed. to. having. high. priests. . even. those. who. were.
involved.in.pagan.worship...They.had.grown.with.the.tradition.of.serving.their.gods.through.the.
filter.of.men,.and.felt.it.comforting.to.lift.men.into.great.power.and.spiritual.authority...As.we.all.
have.experienced.at.one.time.or.another,.having.a.physical.face.to.associate.with.God.makes.
God.seem.more.alive.and.real.to.us..
.
.
But.this.was.not.the.way.God.intended.after.His.work.on.the.cross..
.
The."book".of.Hebrews.is.not.a."book".at.all...Long.before.printing.presses.and.cover.bindings,.
these.letters.were.written.on.scrolls...They.were.not.indexed.with.chapters,.not.counted.as.lines.

www.seekyethetruth.com.

156.

or.verses...The.Book.of.Hebrews.was.really.the.Scroll.of.Hebrews,.a.single.letter.written.to.the.
early.church.to.describe.our.new.High.Priest..
.
And.while.the.words.are.very.powerful,.so.much.that.they.are.quoted.in.several.sermons,.you.
will. find. that. they. are. not. NEARLY. so. powerful. as. when. they. are. read. together. as. they. were.
intended:..One.single.letter.to.the.church...
.
This. single. scroll. addresses. many. issues. found. in. churches. today.. . When. separated,. these.
chapters.do.not.relay.the.same.instruction.to.the.church...But.when.combined,.you.will.find.that.
many.churches.today..especially.cult.churches..have.fallen.into.grave.error..
.
The.Jews.were.not.the.only.ones.that.practiced.asceticism,.or.the.idea.that.you.can.become.more.
"holy".by.the.pleasurable.things.that.you.desire.but.avoid.for.your.god...Pagan.worship.infiltrated.
the.early.church.to.create.Gnosticism...Gnosis.is.the.idea.that.the.material.world.was.created.by.
the.evil.forces:.Satan's.Eden...Those.who.practiced.Gnosticism.believed.that.they.had.spiritual.
"enlightenment".by.knowing.the."mysteries,".and.therefore.abstained.from.any.sort.of.pleasure.
this.world.had.to.offer...
.
But.the.Jews.were.bound.by.the.Mosaic.Law...This.Law.not.only.created.a.similar.works\righteous.
faith,.but.it.came.with.severe.punishment.for.failure...
.
The.Children.of.Israel.were.familiar.with.the.worship.of.Baal...Living.in.Egypt,.walking.side.by.side.
with.Egyptians.involved.with.pyramid.worship.of.the.sun.god,.Ra,.Isis,.Osiris,.and.more,.they.were.
familiar.with.Egyptian.custom...And.it.affected.them.to.the.point.of.their.downfall..
.
When.Moses.returned.from.the.mountain,.having.met.God.face.to.face,.the.people.were.not.
satisfied.to.simply.believe.God.for.their.protection.and.salvation...Following.the.example.of.the.
Egyptian.worship,.the.Children.of.Israel.begged.Moses.to.go.BACK.up.the.mountain.and.ask.God.
what.THEY.must.do.to.secure.protection.and.salvation..
.
Moses.returned.with.the.Law..
.
Throughout.time,.the.Old.Testament.describes.how.men.and.women.tried.to.save.themselves...
A.righteous.man.would.be.born,.realize.that.people.had.fallen.into.idolatry,.tear.down.the.idols.
that.were.worshipped,.and.God.would.bless.him...But.over.time,.even.those.righteous.men.would.
fall...It.sounds.very.simple.to.us:."Don't.worship.those.wooden.or.stone.things.over.there,.they.
aren't.gods!".
.
But. it. wasn't. that. easy.. . In. a. spiritual. sense,. we. have. the. same. exact. thing. today,. and. future.
generations.will.rise,.looking.back.at.us.and.ask.themselves:..Why.do.they.worship.EVENTS.in.
history?..Why.did.they.think.that.following.a.MAN.had.anything.to.do.with.their.salvation?..Didn't.
they.read.the.book.of.Hebrews?.
.

157.

The.Children.of.Israel.had.the.same.exact.problem...Moses.was.their.great.spiritual.leader...He.
didn't.have.photographs.that.looked.like.halos.or.clouds,.but.he.was.the."great.one".that.spoke.
directly.to.God...He.brought.the.Mosaic.Law,.the.code.that.they.lived.by...Moses.was.the.closest.
thing.to.God,.and.he.was.their.mediator.between.God.and.man..
.
The. Book. of. Hebrews. breaks. them. from. falling. into. worship. of. a. man,. starting. in. the. third.
chapter:.
.
"Therefore,.holy.brothers,.you.who.share.in.a.heavenly.calling,.consider.Jesus,.the.apostle.and.
high.priest.of.our.confession,.who.was.faithful.to.him.who.appointed.him,.just.as.Moses.also.was.
faithful.in.all.God's.house..For.Jesus.has.been.counted.worthy.of.MORE.glory.than.Mosesas.
much.MORE.glory.as.the.builder.of.a.house.has.more.honor.than.the.house.itself...(For.every.
house.is.built.by.someone,.but.the.builder.of.ALL.THINGS.is.God.)..Now.Moses.was.faithful.in.all.
God's.house.as.a.servant,.to.testify.to.the.things.that.were.to.be.spoken.later,.but.Christ.is.faithful.
over.God's.house.as.a.son...And.we.are.his.house.if.indeed.we.hold.fast.our.confidence.and.our.
boasting.in.our.hope.".
.
Hebrews.3.
.
Works.were.necessary...The.Mosaic.Law.was.necessary...Any.house.that.is.built.is.built.by.works...
If.you.do.not.labor,.your.lumber.and.brick.will.lay.in.stacks.never.assembled..
.
Chapter.4.of.Hebrews.assures.the.people.that.this.work.was.not.in.vain...Their.devotion.towards.
building.the.house,.the.Body.of.Christ,.had.value...But.at.some.point,.you.rest.in.your.labor...
.
When.you.build.a.house.for.your.family,.long.hours.are.spent.in.the.hot.sun.laboring.to.make.the.
walls.and.roof...Once.the.foundation.is.set,.the.walls.are.raised,.and.the.roof.has.covered,.the.
labor.does.not.stop.there...The.inside.must.be.finished.and.the.house.must.be.made.livable...It.is.
a.tremendous.undertaking.to.construct.a.house,.but.when.you.are.finished,.you.rest...You.don't.
finish.the.house.and.continually.labor..there.is.nothing.more.to.do...You.ENJOY.the.house!.
.
Chapter.4.reminds.us.that.this.rest.is.deserved...And.it.is.not.considered."unholy".to.rest.from.
the.works\righteous.faith.that.the.Jews.once.knew...The.chapter.reminds.the.people.that.even.
on.the.seventh.day.of.building.the.earth,.God.rested!..
.
And.rest.is.very.important...The.chapter.also.reminds.us.that.the.work.was.already.finished.from.
BEFORE.the.foundation.of.the.world...Yet.God.rested..
.
But.this.part.of.the.chapter.is.VERY.IMPORTANT.to.understand...In.works\righteous.faith,.you.
must.save.yourself...If.you.try.to.uphold.PART.of.the.Mosaic.Law,.but.do.not.uphold.the.REST.of.
the.Mosaic.Law,.then.you.deserve.the.over.three.hundred.punishments.of.that.Law...
.
The.Mosaic.Law.came.with.a.reward.of.three.hundred.blessings.if.the.people.kept.ALL.of.the.Law,.
and.three.hundred.curses.if.the.people.failed.ANY.PART.of.that.Law..

.
I. hear. many. pastors. today,. quoting. the. Mosaic. Law. in. order. to. enforce. "godliness. over.
worldliness,".yet.NONE.of.them.will.stone.their.children.when.they.disobey...NONE.of.them.wash.
their.hands.in.brass.basins.before.entering.church...There.are.more.Laws.that.they.breach.than.
they.preach..
.
Chapter.4.BEGS.us.to.enter.God's.rest.from.works\righteous.faith...It.was.not.for.Joshua's.time,.
Joshua.was.building.the.house...It.was.not.for.the.people.before.them,.it.was.here,.it.was.now,.It.
was.Christ!.
.
And.those.who.did.not.enter.it,.those.who.remained.in.works.righteous.faith,.will.fall.to.the.same.
disobedience.that.is.described.in.the.Old.Testament..
.
For.if.Joshua.had.given.them.rest,.God.would.not.have.spoken.of.another.day.later.on...So.then,.
there.remains.a.Sabbath.rest.for.the.people.of.God,..for.whoever.has.entered.God's.rest.has.also.
rested.from.his.works.as.God.did.from.his...Let.us.therefore.strive.to.enter.that.rest,.so.that.no.
one.may.fall.by.the.same.sort.of.disobedience..
.
Hebrews.4.
.
..
.
But.at.the.end.of.the.chapter,.it.sets.up.the.very.foundation.for.the.entire.scroll.of.Hebrews:.
.
Since.then.we.have.a.great.high.priest.who.has.passed.through.the.heavens,.Jesus,.the.Son.of.
God,.let.us.hold.fast.our.confession..For.we.do.not.have.a.high.priest.who.is.unable.to.sympathize.
with.our.weaknesses,.but.one.who.in.every.respect.has.been.tempted.as.we.are,.yet.without.sin..
Let.us.then.with.confidence.draw.near.to.the.throne.of.grace,.that.we.may.receive.mercy.and.
find.grace.to.help.in.time.of.need..
.
This.thought.is.continued.in.chapter.five,.describing.how.Christ.was.now.our.High.Priest.after.the.
order.of.Melchizedek...It.tells.us.how.the.high.priests.offered.small.sacrifices.on.our.behalf,.but.
Christ.bore.the.pain.on.our.behalf...He.paid.the.penalty.and.BECAME.the.sacrifice..
.
It's.funny,.because.in.Chapter.5,.the.writer.realizes.that.people.will.one.day.stop.reading.this.
scroll.in.its.entirety...It.is.almost.as.if.the.writer.can.peer.into.the.future,.how.they.will.ignore.this.
new.High.Priest.so.that.they.can.set.up."Super.Apostles".or."Prophets,".or."Seventh.Church.Age.
Messengers.".
.
The.writer.gives.this.warning:.

About.this.we.have.much.to.say,.and.it.is.hard.to.explain,.since.you.have.become.dull.of.hearing...
For.though.by.this.time.you.ought.to.be.teachers,.you.need.someone.to.teach.you.again.the.basic.

.
Hebrews.6.
.
Look.at.what.we.have.today!..Super.apostles,.prophets,.and.more.telling.us.that.THEY.have.a.
better.way!..You.must.baptize.this.way,.you.must.believe.there.is.NOT.an.eternal.hell!..Hebrews.
chapters.5\6.CONDEMNS.this!.
.
The.end.of.Chapter.six.reminds.us.of.God's.everlasting.covenant.with.Abraham,.and.denies.this.
"little.bride.theology".that.the.Gnostics.were.spreading...This.promise.was.not.for.a.small.number.
that.could.be.counted...God's.promise.to.Abraham.was.a.promise.that.his.people.would.be.as.
the.sands.of.the.sea...
.
"For.when.God.made.a.promise.to.Abraham,.since.he.had.no.one.greater.by.whom.to.swear,.he.
swore.by.himself,.saying,."Surely.I.will.bless.you.and.multiply.you."..And.thus.Abraham,.having.
patiently.waited,.obtained.the.promise...For.people.swear.by.something.greater.than.themselves,.
and.in.all.their.disputes.an.oath.is.final.for.confirmation...So.when.God.desired.to.show.more.
convincingly. to. the. heirs. of. the. promise. the. unchangeable. character. of. his. purpose,. he.
guaranteed.it.with.an.oath,.so.that.by.two.unchangeable.things,.in.which.it.is.impossible.for.God.
to.lie,.we.who.have.fled.for.refuge.might.have.strong.encouragement.to.hold.fast.to.the.hope.
set.before.us...We.have.this.as.a.sure.and.steadfast.anchor.of.the.soul,.a.hope.that.enters.into.
the.inner.place.behind.the.curtain,.where.Jesus.has.gone.as.a.forerunner.on.our.behalf,.having.
become.a.high.priest.forever.after.the.order.of.Melchizedek.".
.
Chapter.7.is.where.it.starts.getting.good...After.establishing.that.we.do.not.need.men.as.our.
"spiritual.leaders,".after.establishing.that.Christ.is.the.new.High.Priest,.after.establishing.that.the.
people. had. finally. deserved. rest,. the. writer. starts. to. build. confidence. that. we. will. still. have.
salvation.in.our.rest.from.works\righteous.faith..
.
The.Old.Covenant.of.Law.had.failed...It.was.useless.towards.salvation,.and.time.after.time.in.the.
Old. Testament. we. have. examples. of. its. failure.. . The. people. still. sinned,. and. the. High. Priests.
offered.sacrifice.for.their.continual.sin...Blood.was.required..
.
.
For. on. the. one. hand,. a. former. commandment. is. set. aside. because. of. its. weakness. and.
uselessness. (for. the. law. made. nothing. perfect);. but. on. the. other. hand,. a. better. hope. is.
introduced,.through.which.we.draw.near.to.God...And.it.was.not.without.an.oath..For.those.who.
formerly.became.priests.were.made.such.without.an.oath,.but.this.one.was.made.a.priest.with.
an.oath.by.the.one.who.said.to.him:.

.
"The.Lord.has.sworn.and.will.not.change.his.mind,.'You.are.a.priest.forever.'..[Not.just.until.some.
'Seventh.Church.Age'].This.makes.Jesus.the.guarantor.of.a.better.covenant...The.former.priests.
were.many.in.number,.because.they.were.prevented.by.death.from.continuing.in.office,.but.he.
holds.his.priesthood.permanently,.because.he.continues.forever...Consequently,.he.is.able.to.
save.to.the.uttermost.those.who.draw.near.to.God.through.him,.since.he.always.lives.to.make.
intercession.for.them..
.
..
.
For. it. was. indeed. fitting. that. we. should. have. such. a. high. priest,. holy,. innocent,. unstained,.
separated.from.sinners,.and.exalted.above.the.heavens...He.has.no.need,.like.those.high.priests,.
to.offer.sacrifices.daily,.first.for.his.own.sins.and.then.for.those.of.the.people,.since.he.did.this.
once.for.all.when.he.offered.up.himself..
.
The.scroll.continues,.describing.the.New.Covenant.and.comparing.it.to.the.weakness.of.the.Old.
Covenant...But.starting.in.chapter.10,.we.find.the.fundamental.element.described.that.is.missing.
in.many.churches.today,.especially.those.that.practice.works\righteous.Christianity..
.
The. Pentecostal. movement. taught. preachers. to. break. down. their. congregations. in. order. to.
increase.the.numbers.at.the.alter.calls...The.sermons.are.designed.to.point.fingers.at.every.single.
possible. sin. that. every. single. member. of. their. congregations. could. have. possibly. committed.
during.the.course.of.the.week...Then,.pretending.to.wipe.a.tear.from.their.eye.with.a.starched.
handkerchief,.they.say,."Now.if.you.have.sin.in.your.lives,.don't.let.this.day.pass...What.if.this.is.
your.last.day.on.earth...What.if.you.get.in.an.automobile.accident.on.the.way.home,.what.if.you.
suddenly.fall.from.a.heart.attack...Don't.let.this.be.your.last.day.without.repenting..IN.FRONT.
OF.ME".
.
In.other.words:."Don't.trust.in.your.salvation...Don't.trust.in.the.work.that.Christ.did.for.you.on.
the.cross...Don't.accept.THAT.by.faith,.accept.THIS.TIME.RIGHT.NOW.as.your.ticket.to.salvation!".
.
But.starting.in.Hebrews.chapter.10,.the.writer.does.the.EXACT.OPPOSITE...The.faith.of.the.church.
is.built.up...
.
Listen.to.these.powerful.words:.
.
Therefore,.brothers,.since.we.have.confidence.to.enter.the.holy.places.by.the.blood.of.Jesus,.by.
the.new.and.living.way.that.he.opened.for.us.through.the.curtain,.that.is,.through.his.flesh,.and.
since.we.have.a.great.priest.over.the.house.of.God,.let.us.draw.near.with.a.true.heart.in.full.
assurance.of.faith,.with.our.hearts.sprinkled.clean.from.an.evil.conscience.and.our.bodies.washed.
with. pure. water.. Let. us. hold. fast. the. confession. of. our. hope. without. wavering,. for. he. who.
promised.is.faithful...And.let.us.consider.how.to.stir.up.one.another.to.love.and.good.works,.not.

neglecting.to.meet.together,.as.is.the.habit.of.some,.but.encouraging.one.another,.and.all.the.
more.as.you.see.the.Day.drawing.near..
.
Immediately. after. this. paragraph,. there. is. one. single. verse. that. is. SNIPPED. out. of. context,.
MISUSED. AND. ABUSED,. and. all. in. the. name. of. Pentecost.. . To. this. day,. and. even. after. the.
Pentecostal.movement.has.fizzled.out,.preachers.around.the.WORLD.preach.this.single.verse.into.
the.ground,.not.realizing.just.how.badly.they.have.taken.it.out.of.context:.
.
For.if.we.go.on.sinning.deliberately.after.receiving.the.knowledge.of.the.truth,.there.no.longer.
remains.a.sacrifice.for.sins.Hebrews.10:26.
.
But.read.the.entire.chapter.in.context...Read.the.chapters.before.it.and.after.it...
.
At.the.end.of.that.chapter,.the.writer.describes.how.that.we.are.NOT.under.that.same.category,.
and.then.goes.on.to.describe.how.faith.in.Jesus.Christ.is.the.key.to.salvation..not.works!.
.
"But.we.ARE.NOT.OF.THOSE.those.who.shrink.back.and.are.destroyed,.but.of.those.who.have.
faith.and.preserve.their.souls."..Hebrews.10:39.
.
After.describing.the.many.examples.of.how.faith.prevailed.in.the.Old.Testament,.all.throughout.
Hebrews.chapter.11,.the.writer.tells.us.how.to.secure.that.faith:..With.witnesses..
.
Many.of.you.will.be.familiar.with.this.chapter,.and.will.have.read.this.paragraph...But.unless.you.
apply.it.to.the.entire.rest.of.the.scroll,.this.paragraph.has.very.little.value...This.is.the.paragraph.
that.ties.everything.together,.the.seal.that.binds.us.under.the.Blood.of.Jesus.Christ..
.
Therefore,.since.we.are.surrounded.by.so.great.a.cloud.of.witnesses,.let.us.also.lay.aside.every.
weight,.and.sin.which.clings.so.closely,.and.let.us.run.with.endurance.the.race.that.is.set.before.
us,.looking.to.Jesus,.the.founder.and.perfecter.of.our.faith,.who.for.the.joy.that.was.set.before.
him.endured.the.cross,.despising.the.shame,.and.is.seated.at.the.right.hand.of.the.throne.of.God...
Consider.him.who.endured.from.sinners.such.hostility.against.himself,.so.that.you.may.not.grow.
weary. or. fainthearted.. In. your. struggle. against. sin. you. have. not. yet. resisted. to. the. point. of.
shedding.your.blood..
.
Our.brothers.and.sisters.in.Christ.are.our.witnesses...We.no.longer.need.to.be.burdened.with.this.
sin.that.plagues.us.daily...NONE.of.us.have.endured.our.sin.until.we.have.died.for.it..ONLY.
Christ.has.been.able.to.achieve.this...We.sin.daily...We.are.unworthy...
.
But.we.are.not.to.be.burdened.down.by.the.weight.of.sin...The.weight.that.the.writer.says."clings.
to.us."..Christ.is.the.perfecter.of.our.faith,.the.One.who.shed.His.blood.so.that.we.don't.even.
have.to.worry.about.it!.
.

Failed$Tent$Prophecy$
.
Some.cult.churches.around.the.world.have.been.trained.to.ignore.this.failed.prophecy,.but.for.
the.home.church.of.Jeffersonville,.Indiana,.the."Tent.Prophecy".is.still.considered.to.be.in.the.
lineup.of."things.that.are.to.be.".
.
You.see,.the.people.of.Jeffersonville.actually.take.the.scriptural.stand.behind.their.faith.a.wee.bit.
more.than.the.other.churches,.because.they.realize.that.just.ONE.single.failed.prophecy.would.
deem.their.leader,.William.Marrion.Branham,.a.false.prophet..The.Bible.is.very.clear.in.instructing.
us.to.watch.for.the.false.prophets.that.will.rise.to.deceive..
.
But. the. prophet. who. shall. speak. a. word. presumptuously. in. My. name. which. I. have. not.
commanded.him.to.speak,.or.which.he.shall.speak.in.the.name.of.other.gods,.that.prophet.shall.
die..And.you.may.say.in.your.heart,.How.shall.we.know.the.word.which.the.LORD.has.not.spoken?.
When.a.prophet.speaks.in.the.name.of.the.LORD,.if.the.thing.does.not.come.about.or.come.true,.
that.is.the.thing.which.the.LORD.has.not.spoken..The.prophet.has.spoken.it.presumptuously;.you.
shall.not.be.afraid.of.him..
.
Deuteronomy..18:20\22.
.
But.while.the.scripture.instructs.us.to.inspect.the.prophecies,.and.after.inspecting.having.found.
one.to.fail,.we.are.not.just.to.ignore.that.PROPHECY..we.are.to.ignore.that.PROPHET..Yet.
people.are.still.trapped.in.the.clutches.of.fear..
.
Other.churches.ignore.this.prophecy.altogether..Some.churches.ignore.prophecy.and.teach.that.
only.the.statements.William.Branham.said.with."Thus.Saith.The.Lord".are.the.ones.we.should.
test.\.all.those.other.prophecies.were.just."presumptuous.words.".
.
But.what.they.do.not.realize.is.that.this.tent.vision.\.one.of.the.prophecies.that.never.came.to.
pass.\.was.actually.wrapped.with.the."Thus.Saith.The.Lord".seal.upon.it:.
.
One.of.these.days.I.want.to.pitch.that.tent.the.Lord's.going.to.give.me,.right.outside.of.this.side.
of.Chicago.those.things.are.not.mythical..In.contact.with.the.Holy.Spiritwhen.I.come.under.
His.anointing,.and.He.takes.me.away.and.shows.me.things,.I.just.got.perfect.confidence.that.it's.
just.exactly.right,.'cause.it's.never.failed..And.He.will.never.say.one.thing.outside.what's.written.
in.this.Bible..That's.right..You.watch.it..Through.the.years,.He's.never.said.one.thing.at.any.time,.
unless.it.was.absolutely.Scripturally.based.on.the.Bible,.THUS.SAITH.THE.LORD..
.

And.it.was.clearly.described.as.a."vision,".make.no.mistake:.

...after.we.get.the.Gospel.tent.we'llhave.no.morning.service,.so.that.people.can.attend.their.
own.church..That's.the.reason.that.by.a.vision.the.Lord.has.showed.me.to.get.this.big.tent.
.
WHAT.VISIONS.ARE_.SPINDALE.NC.56\0421.
.
Some.of.you.have.never.seen.or.heard.of.this,.and.I'm.sure.you.are.asking.yourselves:.How.does.
Jeffersonville.STILL.stand.behind.this.failed.prophecy,.all.while.knowing.for.certain.that.this.vision.
did.NOT.come.to.pass?.
.
The.answer.will.shock.many.of.you..Jeffersonville.is.the.headquarters.of.the.cult..What.comes.
out.of.Jeffersonville.is.the."word.from.Mecca".for.many.churches.around.the.world!.Missionaries.
many.of.you.know.are.from.Jeffersonville.\.and.they've.never.mentioned.this!.
.
The.only.way.that.you.can.support.an.unfulfilled.prophecy,.one.that.came.from.a."prophet".who.
is.long.dead.and.gone,.is.to.bring.him.back.to.life..
.
Many.of.you.are.thinking,."Oh..Makes.sense..We'll.ALL.rise.in.the.resurrection.anyway.".
.
But.stop.and.consider.what.you.are.thinking..Bringing.a."prophet".back.from.the.dead.with.the.
resurrection.would.agree.with.scripture..But.let's.consider.the.order.of.events.when.our.Lord.
returns:.
.
But.we.do.not.want.you.to.be.uninformed,.brothers,.about.those.who.are.asleep,.that.you.may.
not.grieve.as.others.do.who.have.no.hope..For.since.we.believe.that.Jesus.died.and.rose.again,.
even.so,.through.Jesus,.God.will.bring.with.him.those.who.have.fallen.asleep..For.this.we.declare.
to.you.by.a.word.from.the.Lord,.that.we.who.are.alive,.who.are.left.until.the.coming.of.the.Lord,.
will.not.precede.those.who.have.fallen.asleep..
.
.
For. the. Lord. himself. will. descend. from. heaven. with. a. cry. of. command,. with. the. voice. of. an.
archangel,.and.with.the.sound.of.the.trumpet.of.God..
And.the.dead.in.Christ.will.rise.first..
Then.we.who.are.alive,.who.are.left,.will.be.caught.up.together.with.them.in.the.clouds.to.meet.
the.Lord.in.the.air,.and.so.we.will.always.be.with.the.Lord..
1.Thessalonians.4.
.
This.still.sounds.reasonable.to.the.mind.who's.been.programmed.with.cult.theology..Branham.
promoted.himself.as.the."last.trumpet.".But.let's.examine.this.a.little.closer..
.
Notice.that.the.Lord.Himself.comes.\.not.just.a."prophet.".And.notice.that.the.dead.in.Christ.DO.
rise.first,.but.notice.that.they.do.not.remain.with.the.people.here.who.are.alive.and.remain..
Those.that.remain.are.carried.up.to.be.with.those.that.have.gone.on..

This.creates.a.HUGE.problem!.Cult.churches.around.the.world.know.this,.and.so.they.avoid.that.
"tent.ministry".doctrine.like.the.PLAGUE!.To.place.Branham.into.this.situation.would.be.to.add.
to. the. scriptures,. inserting. a. "resurrection. before. the. resurrection!". While. the. "tent. ministry.
doctrine".comes.from.headquarters,.it.is.not.widely.accepted.in.the.cult..Many.members.in.the.
Branham.cult.does.not.even.know.this.particular.doctrine.even.exists..
.
When.preachers.start.changing.the.scriptures,.you'll.notice.that.they.can't.change.just.one..The.
scriptures.are.inter\connected,.all.scriptures.flowing.together.with.the.force.of.a.raging.river..To.
change.one.scripture,.you.must.change.a.hundred.others..After.changing.those.others,.you.are.
forced.to.change.a.thousand.more..Eventually,.you're.re\written.the.Book..
.
To.say.that.Branham.will.be.numbered.in.the.Resurrection.would.not.present.much.of.a.problem..
But.to.place.him.back.into.human.flesh.would.be.to.deny.his.heavenly.body,.the.new.body.that.
the.dead.in.Christ.are.to.receive..So.to.promote.a.coming.tent.ministry,.after.having.been.dead,.
you.have.to.stop.preaching.sections.of.Corinthians..
.
Take.1.Corinthians.15.as.an.example:.
.
(And.I.LOVE.this.section,.because.it's.incredibly.funny.when.it.starts.out..Paul.rebukes.somebody.
who.starts.thinking.about.zombies!).
.
"But.someone.will.ask,."How.are.the.dead.raised?.With.what.kind.of.body.do.they.come?".You.
foolish.person!.What.you.sow.does.not.come.to.life.unless.it.dies..And.what.you.sow.is.not.the.
body.that.is.to.be,.but.a.bare.kernel,.perhaps.of.wheat.or.of.some.other.grain..But.God.gives.it.a.
body.as.he.has.chosen,.and.to.each.kind.of.seed.its.own.body..For.not.all.flesh.is.the.same,.but.
there.is.one.kind.for.humans,.another.for.animals,.another.for.birds,.and.another.for.fish..There.
are.heavenly.bodies.and.earthly.bodies,.but.the.glory.of.the.heavenly.is.of.one.kind,.and.the.glory.
of.the.earthly.is.of.another..There.is.one.glory.of.the.sun,.and.another.glory.of.the.moon,.and.
another.glory.of.the.stars;.for.star.differs.from.star.in.glory.".
.
1.Corinthians.15.
.
So. we. have. first. established. this:. That. the. heavenly. body. is. COMPLETELY. different. than. the.
earthly.body..No.questions.asked..
.
So. is. it. with. the. resurrection. of. the. dead.. What. is. sown. is. perishable;. what. is. raised. is.
imperishable..It.is.sown.in.dishonor;.it.is.raised.in.glory..It.is.sown.in.weakness;.it.is.raised.in.
power..It.is.sown.a.natural.body;.it.is.raised.a.spiritual.body..If.there.is.a.natural.body,.there.is.
also.a.spiritual.body..Thus.it.is.written,."The.first.man.Adam.became.a.living.being";.the.last.Adam.
became.a.life\giving.spirit..But.it.is.not.the.spiritual.that.is.first.but.the.natural,.and.then.the.
spiritual..The.first.man.was.from.the.earth,.a.man.of.dust;.the.second.man.is.from.heaven..As.
was.the.man.of.dust,.so.also.are.those.who.are.of.the.dust,.and.as.is.the.man.of.heaven,.so.also.
are.those.who.are.of.heaven..Just.as.we.have.borne.the.image.of.the.man.of.dust,.we.shall.also.
bear.the.image.of.the.man.of.heaven..

.
1.Corinthians.15.
.
I.can.see.a.few.jaws.dropping.right.about.now..HOUSTON!.WE.HAVE.A.PROBLEM!!!.
.
Paul.just.told.us.WHEN.we.will.receive.our.heavenly.bodies,.and.this.just.broke.TWO.fundamental.
message.teachings:.
.
.We.just.took.Branham.out.of.his.flesh.for.this."return.tent.ministry.".Why.does.he.need.that.
airplane. that. is. laying. in. a. field. collecting. rust?. How. will. he. stand. before. us. on. the. platform,.
preaching.those.Seven.Thunders.(The.ones.that.he.never.preached.when.he.was.alive)?.How.will.
he.preach.that.Clarence.Larkin.sermon,."Trail.of.the.Serpent?".
The.first.problem.is.big.enough.to.make.most.Christians.get.up.and.walk.out.of.a.service..They'd.
never.sit.through.something.that.strongly.disagrees.with.their.Bibles.\.especially.nonsense.about.
sitting.in.the.hot.sweatbox.of.a.tent.in.this.day.and.age!.They'd.leave.this.place.and.quickly.find.
some.church.that.preaches.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ..
.
.The.second.problem.is.a.little.bigger..Remember.how.when.you.change.one.scripture,.you.have.
to.change.others.to.match?.The.same.thing.happens.with.any.lie..One.lie.leads.to.another,.and.
pretty.soon,.you.find.yourself.questioning.everything..
What.we.are.doing.here.is.examining.things.in.chronological.order.\.something.I.recommend.that.
EVERYONE.do.with.Branham's.ministry..You'll.quickly.start.to.see.how.things.grow.and.grow.over.
time.many.times.growing.INTO.visions.that.were.never.fulfilled..
.
The."tent.vision".was.not.always.a.vision..If.you.examine.what.he.says.about.the.coming.tent,.it.
started.out.as.more.of.a.pipe.dream..Branham.started.BEGGING.for.the.people.to.buy.him.a.tent.
in.1953..It.was.a.time.when.the.other.big.names.in.the.Divine.Healing.movement.all.had.tents..
He. didn't. have. one.. He. begged. and. pleaded,. but. couldn't. muster. up. enough. donations. \. and.
spent.the.rest.on.hunting.trips..
.
It. did. not. turn. into. a. "prophecy". until. April. of. 1956.. And. those. of. you. who. have. studied. this.
"prophecy".know.about.that."little.room".in.the.tent.where.you.receive.your."new.bodies.".
.
That.little.addition.is.a.problem..He.knew.it..But.he.knew.it.too.late.\.it.was.already.recorded.and.
spread.all.around.the.country..What.can.he.do.now?.Now.the.people.KNOW.that.they.are.given.
human.flesh.\.when.the.scriptures.tell.us.that.our.new.bodies.are.SPIRIT.BODIES!.
.
Like.I.said..When.you.change.one.scripture,.you.have.to.keep.changing..
.
Remember.that."vision".Branham.started.to.have.in.1957?.The.one.where.he.looked."Beyond.
The.Curtain.of.Time".and.saw.the."souls.resting?".

away,.and.the.sea.was.no.more..And.I.saw.the.holy.city,.new.Jerusalem,.coming.down.out.of.

the.throne.saying,."Behold,.the.dwelling.place.of.God.is.with.man..He.will.dwell.with.them,.and.
they.will.be.his.people,.and.God.himself.will.be.with.them.as.their.God..He.will.wipe.away.every.

.
And.he.who.was.seated.on.the.throne.said,."Behold,.I.am.making.all.things.new.".Also.he.said,.
"Write.this.down,.for.these.words.are.trustworthy.and.true.".And.he.said.to.me,."It.is.done!.I.am.

The$Failed$Tent$Prophecy$
.
Some.cult.churches.around.the.world.have.been.trained.to.ignore.this.failed.prophecy,.but.for.
the.home.church.of.Jeffersonville,.Indiana,.the."Tent.Prophecy".is.still.considered.to.be.in.the.
lineup.of."things.that.are.to.be.".
.
You.see,.the.people.of.Jeffersonville.actually.take.the.scriptural.stand.behind.their.faith.a.wee.bit.
more.than.the.other.churches,.because.they.realize.that.just.ONE.single.failed.prophecy.would.
deem. their. leader,. William. Marrion. Branham,. a. false. prophet.. . The. Bible. is. very. clear. in.
instructing.us.to.watch.for.the.false.prophets.that.will.rise.to.deceive..
.
But. the. prophet. who. shall. speak. a. word. presumptuously. in. My. name. which. I. have. not.
commanded.him.to.speak,.or.which.he.shall.speak.in.the.name.of.other.gods,.that.prophet.shall.
die...And.you.may.say.in.your.heart,.How.shall.we.know.the.word.which.the.LORD.has.not.spoken?..
When.a.prophet.speaks.in.the.name.of.the.LORD,.if.the.thing.does.not.come.about.or.come.true,.
that.is.the.thing.which.the.LORD.has.not.spoken..The.prophet.has.spoken.it.presumptuously;.you.
shall.not.be.afraid.of.him..
.
Deuteronomy..18:20\22.
.
But.while.the.scripture.instructs.us.to.inspect.the.prophecies,.and.after.inspecting.having.found.
one.to.fail,.we.are.not.just.to.ignore.that.PROPHECY..we.are.to.ignore.that.PROPHET...Yet.
people.are.still.trapped.in.the.clutches.of.fear..
.
Other.churches.ignore.this.prophecy.altogether...Some.churches.ignore.prophecy.and.teach.that.
only.the.statements.William.Branham.said.with."Thus.Saith.The.Lord".are.the.ones.we.should.
test..all.those.other.prophecies.were.just."presumptuous.words.".
.
But.what.they.do.not.realize.is.that.this.tent.vision..one.of.the.prophecies.that.never.came.to.
pass..was.actually.wrapped.with.the."Thus.Saith.The.Lord".seal.upon.it:.
.
One.of.these.days.I.want.to.pitch.that.tent.the.Lord's.going.to.give.me,.right.outside.of.this.side.
of.Chicago.those.things.are.not.mythical..In.contact.with.the.Holy.Spiritwhen.I.come.under.
His.anointing,.and.He.takes.me.away.and.shows.me.things,.I.just.got.perfect.confidence.that.it's.
just.exactly.right,.'cause.it's.never.failed..And.He.will.never.say.one.thing.outside.what's.written.
in.this.Bible..That's.right..You.watch.it..Through.the.years,.He's.never.said.one.thing.at.any.time,.
unless.it.was.absolutely.Scripturally.based.on.the.Bible,.THUS.SAITH.THE.LORD..
.
SHEPHERD.OF.THE.SHEEPFOLD_.CHICAGO.IL.56\0403.E\15.
.
And.it.was.clearly.described.as.a."vision,".make.no.mistake:.

...after.we.get.the.Gospel.tent.we'llhave.no.morning.service,.so.that.people.can.attend.their.
own.church..That's.the.reason.that.by.a.vision.the.Lord.has.showed.me.to.get.this.big.tent.
.
WHAT.VISIONS.ARE_.SPINDALE.NC.56\0421.
.
Some.of.you.have.never.seen.or.heard.of.this,.and.I'm.sure.you.are.asking.yourselves:..How.does.
Jeffersonville.STILL.stand.behind.this.failed.prophecy,.all.while.knowing.for.certain.that.this.vision.
did.NOT.come.to.pass?.
.
The.answer.will.shock.many.of.you...Jeffersonville.is.the.headquarters.of.the.cult...What.comes.
out.of.Jeffersonville.is.the."word.from.Mecca".for.many.churches.around.the.world!..Missionaries.
many.of.you.know.are.from.Jeffersonville..and.they've.never.mentioned.this!.
.
The.only.way.that.you.can.support.an.unfulfilled.prophecy,.one.that.came.from.a."prophet".who.
is.long.dead.and.gone,.is.to.bring.him.back.to.life...
.
Many.of.you.are.thinking,."Oh...Makes.sense...We'll.ALL.rise.in.the.resurrection.anyway."..
.
But.stop.and.consider.what.you.are.thinking...Bringing.a."prophet".back.from.the.dead.with.the.
resurrection.would.agree.with.scripture...But.let's.consider.the.order.of.events.when.our.Lord.
returns:.
.
But.we.do.not.want.you.to.be.uninformed,.brothers,.about.those.who.are.asleep,.that.you.may.
not.grieve.as.others.do.who.have.no.hope...For.since.we.believe.that.Jesus.died.and.rose.again,.
even.so,.through.Jesus,.God.will.bring.with.him.those.who.have.fallen.asleep...For.this.we.declare.
to.you.by.a.word.from.the.Lord,.that.we.who.are.alive,.who.are.left.until.the.coming.of.the.Lord,.
will.not.precede.those.who.have.fallen.asleep...
.
..
.
For. the. Lord. himself. will. descend. from. heaven. with. a. cry. of. command,. with. the. voice. of. an.
archangel,.and.with.the.sound.of.the.trumpet.of.God..
And.the.dead.in.Christ.will.rise.first...
Then.we.who.are.alive,.who.are.left,.will.be.caught.up.together.with.them.in.the.clouds.to.meet.
the.Lord.in.the.air,.and.so.we.will.always.be.with.the.Lord......
1.Thessalonians.4.
.
This.still.sounds.reasonable.to.the.mind.who's.been.programmed.with.cult.theology...Branham.
promoted.himself.as.the."last.trumpet."..But.let's.examine.this.a.little.closer..
.
Notice.that.the.Lord.Himself.comes..not.just.a."prophet."..And.notice.that.the.dead.in.Christ.
DO.rise.first,.but.notice.that.they.do.not.remain.with.the.people.here.who.are.alive.and.remain...
Those.that.remain.are.carried.up.to.be.with.those.that.have.gone.on..
.

172.

This.creates.a.HUGE.problem!..Cult.churches.around.the.world.know.this,.and.so.they.avoid.that.
"tent.ministry".doctrine.like.the.PLAGUE!..To.place.Branham.into.this.situation.would.be.to.add.
to.the.scriptures,.inserting.a."resurrection.before.the.resurrection!"..While.the."tent.ministry.
doctrine".comes.from.headquarters,.it.is.not.widely.accepted.in.the.cult...Many.members.in.the.
Branham.cult.does.not.even.know.this.particular.doctrine.even.exists..
.
When.preachers.start.changing.the.scriptures,.you'll.notice.that.they.can't.change.just.one...The.
scriptures.are.inter\connected,.all.scriptures.flowing.together.with.the.force.of.a.raging.river...To.
change.one.scripture,.you.must.change.a.hundred.others...After.changing.those.others,.you.are.
forced.to.change.a.thousand.more...Eventually,.you're.re\written.the.Book..
.
To.say.that.Branham.will.be.numbered.in.the.Resurrection.would.not.present.much.of.a.problem...
But.to.place.him.back.into.human.flesh.would.be.to.deny.his.heavenly.body,.the.new.body.that.
the.dead.in.Christ.are.to.receive....So.to.promote.a.coming.tent.ministry,.after.having.been.dead,.
you.have.to.stop.preaching.sections.of.Corinthians..
.
Take.1.Corinthians.15.as.an.example:.
.
(And.I.LOVE.this.section,.because.it's.incredibly.funny.when.it.starts.out...Paul.rebukes.somebody.
who.starts.thinking.about.zombies!).
.
"But.someone.will.ask,."How.are.the.dead.raised?.With.what.kind.of.body.do.they.come?"..You.
foolish.person!.What.you.sow.does.not.come.to.life.unless.it.dies...And.what.you.sow.is.not.the.
body.that.is.to.be,.but.a.bare.kernel,.perhaps.of.wheat.or.of.some.other.grain...But.God.gives.it.
a.body.as.he.has.chosen,.and.to.each.kind.of.seed.its.own.body...For.not.all.flesh.is.the.same,.but.
there.is.one.kind.for.humans,.another.for.animals,.another.for.birds,.and.another.for.fish...There.
are.heavenly.bodies.and.earthly.bodies,.but.the.glory.of.the.heavenly.is.of.one.kind,.and.the.glory.
of.the.earthly.is.of.another...There.is.one.glory.of.the.sun,.and.another.glory.of.the.moon,.and.
another.glory.of.the.stars;.for.star.differs.from.star.in.glory.".
.
1.Corinthians.15.
.
So. we. have. first. established. this:. . That. the. heavenly. body. is. COMPLETELY. different. than. the.
earthly.body...No.questions.asked...
.
So. is. it. with. the. resurrection. of. the. dead.. What. is. sown. is. perishable;. what. is. raised. is.
imperishable...It.is.sown.in.dishonor;.it.is.raised.in.glory..It.is.sown.in.weakness;.it.is.raised.in.
power...It.is.sown.a.natural.body;.it.is.raised.a.spiritual.body..If.there.is.a.natural.body,.there.is.
also.a.spiritual.body...Thus.it.is.written,."The.first.man.Adam.became.a.living.being";.the.last.
Adam.became.a.life\giving.spirit...But.it.is.not.the.spiritual.that.is.first.but.the.natural,.and.then.
the.spiritual...The.first.man.was.from.the.earth,.a.man.of.dust;.the.second.man.is.from.heaven...
As.was.the.man.of.dust,.so.also.are.those.who.are.of.the.dust,.and.as.is.the.man.of.heaven,.so.
also.are.those.who.are.of.heaven...Just.as.we.have.borne.the.image.of.the.man.of.dust,.we.shall.
also.bear.the.image.of.the.man.of.heaven..

.
1.Corinthians.15.
.
I.can.see.a.few.jaws.dropping.right.about.now...HOUSTON!..WE.HAVE.A.PROBLEM!!!.
.
Paul.just.told.us.WHEN.we.will.receive.our.heavenly.bodies,.and.this.just.broke.TWO.fundamental.
message.teachings:.
.
.....We.just.took.Branham.out.of.his.flesh.for.this."return.tent.ministry."..Why.does.he.need.that.
airplane.that.is.laying.in.a.field.collecting.rust?..How.will.he.stand.before.us.on.the.platform,.
preaching.those.Seven.Thunders.(The.ones.that.he.never.preached.when.he.was.alive)?..How.will.
he.preach.that.Clarence.Larkin.sermon,."Trail.of.the.Serpent?".
The.first.problem.is.big.enough.to.make.most.Christians.get.up.and.walk.out.of.a.service...They'd.
never. sit. through. something. that. strongly. disagrees. with. their. Bibles. . especially. nonsense.
about.sitting.in.the.hot.sweatbox.of.a.tent.in.this.day.and.age!..They'd.leave.this.place.and.quickly.
find.some.church.that.preaches.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ..
.
.....The.second.problem.is.a.little.bigger...Remember.how.when.you.change.one.scripture,.you.
have.to.change.others.to.match?..The.same.thing.happens.with.any.lie...One.lie.leads.to.another,.
and.pretty.soon,.you.find.yourself.questioning.everything..
What.we.are.doing.here.is.examining.things.in.chronological.order..something.I.recommend.
that.EVERYONE.do.with.Branham's.ministry...You'll.quickly.start.to.see.how.things.grow.and.grow.
over.time.many.times.growing.INTO.visions.that.were.never.fulfilled..
.
The."tent.vision".was.not.always.a.vision...If.you.examine.what.he.says.about.the.coming.tent,.it.
started.out.as.more.of.a.pipe.dream...Branham.started.BEGGING.for.the.people.to.buy.him.a.tent.
in.1953...It.was.a.time.when.the.other.big.names.in.the.Divine.Healing.movement.all.had.tents...
He.didn't.have.one...He.begged.and.pleaded,.but.couldn't.muster.up.enough.donations..and.
spent.the.rest.on.hunting.trips..
.
It.did.not.turn.into.a."prophecy".until.April.of.1956...And.those.of.you.who.have.studied.this.
"prophecy".know.about.that."little.room".in.the.tent.where.you.receive.your."new.bodies.".
.
That.little.addition.is.a.problem...He.knew.it...But.he.knew.it.too.late..it.was.already.recorded.
and.spread.all.around.the.country...What.can.he.do.now?..Now.the.people.KNOW.that.they.are.
given.human.flesh..when.the.scriptures.tell.us.that.our.new.bodies.are.SPIRIT.BODIES!.
.
Like.I.said...When.you.change.one.scripture,.you.have.to.keep.changing...
.
Remember.that."vision".Branham.started.to.have.in.1957?..The.one.where.he.looked."Beyond.
The.Curtain.of.Time".and.saw.the."souls.resting?"..
.

This.was.brilliant...All.part.of.the.plan...It.started.with.simple.statements,.but.notice.where.it.
ended.up!..That.story.of.the.little.old.lady.that.he.once.knew,.suddenly.given.the."body.of.a.
twenty\year\old!"..She.was.given.an.EARTLY.body.in.this."vision,".not.a.heavenly.one!.
.
Friends,.it.does.not.stop.there...If.you.want.to.see.just.how.many.changes.were.made.to.support.
this.one.failed.prophecy,.just.start.reading.your.Bible...Compare.it.to.the.doctrines.you've.been.
raised.with...All.trails.of.twisted.scriptures.lead.to.one.place:..a.presumptuous.prophecy..
.
Branham.wanted.to.be.the.hero...He.wanted.to.be.the.one.who.gave.the.people.their.new.bodies,.
leading.them.into.that.little.room.in.his.little.tent...He.wanted.to.be.the.judge,.telling.people.that.

judge..

some.little.tent.that.WON'T.EVEN.HOLD.the.two.to.four.MILLION.people.around.the.world.in.this.

in.Revelation.21:.

There.is.a.new.website.that.just.launched.(thebitterbelly.com),.an.out\of\the\cult.experience.that.
is.based.on.the.perspective.of.a.woman's.point.of.view...In.the.teachings.of.William.Branham,.
there.is.a.vast.difference.between.the.life.of.a.woman.and.the.life.of.a.man...Women.are.not.the.
same.creatures.of.God,.equal.to.man,.that.was.described.by.the.Apostle.Paul...
.
I.love.the.title.of.the.new.site..."The.Bitter.Belly."..It.is.referring.to.the."little.scroll".that.John.the.
Revelator.ingested,.the.one.that.tasted.good.but.made.his.stomach.very.bitter...
.
The.blog.post.today,.describing.the.creation.of.the.female.reminded.me.of.the.Samaritan.woman.
in.the.Bible...Too.many.times,.people.in.the.cult.trample.over.the.emotions.of.others.without.
regard.for.their.spirit...
.
If.they.would.only.ask.themselves:.What.Would.Christ.Do?.
.
When.people.today.hear.the.word."Samaritan,".they.typically.associate.it.with.a.good.deed.or.a.
good.work...The.story.of.the."Good.Samaritan".given.as.an.example.in.the.Bible.reminds.them.
that.our.love.towards.others.is.the.way.Christ.leads.our.hearts.and.minds..
.
In. this. day. and. age,. with. the. blended. mix. of. race,. nationality. and. religion,. we. find. extended.
helping. hands. from. all. sorts. of. people,. and. our. understanding. of. what. it. meant. for. a. "Good.
Samaritan".is.very.limited...The.Samaritans.were.a.despised.people..
.
In.the.ancient.world,.the.people.of.Samaria.were.vastly.different.than.the.Jews,.yet.still.closely.
related...Samaritans.followed.the.teachings.of.Abraham,.and.considered.their.religion.to.be.the.
"one.true.religion".that.was.established.before.the.exile.of.the.Children.of.Israel.into.Babylon...
Those.that.remained.in.the.Land.of.Israel.remained.in.the.ancient.city.of.Samaria,.which.was.
located.in.Northern.Israel,.and.was.once.the.capitol.of.the.Kingdom.of.Israel..
.
But.Samaria.was.far.from.perfect...The.king.of.Assyria.had.brought.people.from.several.nations.
to.repopulate.the.cities.of.Samaria.after.Jewish.excile...The.Second.Book.of.Kings.tells.of.the.
slaughter.of.people.for.their.mixing.with.nations.practicing.idolatry...Worship.of.Yahweh.was.
mixed.with.strange.gods...And.even.after.God.sent.lions.to.kill.the.idolaters,.the.people.did.not.
fully.cleanse.their.land.from.pagan.worship...2.Kings.17.says,."So.they.feared.the.Lord.but.also.
served.their.own.gods,.after.the.manner.of.the.nations.from.among.whom.they.had.been.carried.
away".
.
With.this.mixture.came.political.division...When.Cyrus.finally.allowed.the.Jews.to.return.to.their.
homeland,.and.the.Samaritans.were.ready.to.welcome.them.back,.the.Jews.considered.them.to.
be.renegades.for.having.fallen.to.idolatry...When.the.Samaritans.offered.to.assist.in.building.the.
Temple,.their.offer.was.rejected.by.the.Jews...Ezra.4.describes.how.this.greatly.offended.the.

www.seekyethetruth.com.

178.

Samaritans,. and. how. they. made. the. Jews. fear. the. rebuilding. of. the. Temple. through. political.
influence..
.
This.division.among.the.people.of.Abraham.did.not.cease,.even.until.the.time.of.Jesus.Christ...The.
people.of.Samaria.were.so.mixed.with.Gentile.blood.that.they.were.considered.to.be."Gentiles".
by.the.Jews..but.the.worst.kind.of.Gentiles...They.were.Gentiles.that.were."impure.Jews.".
.
So.when.the.example.is.given.of.the.Jews.who.would.not.stop.to.help.the.man.along.the.side.of.
the.road,.and.how.the.Samaritan.stopped.to.offer.assistance,.it.is.a.stunning.display.of.God's.
Grace...The.Samaritan.would.have.been.the.one.that.the.people.would.not.have.even.considered.
to.have.stopped...And.the.man.on.the.side.of.the.road.would.have.not.likely.WANTED.the.man.
to.have.stopped..unless.he.was.fully.desperate.beyond.all.political.concern..
.
But.the.story.that.seems.long.forgotten.in.the.church.is.the.one.of.the.Samaritan.woman.at.the.
well.that.is.told.in.the.Gospel.of.John.Chapter.4...
.
You.will.hear.this.story.often.in.the.cult.of.William.Branham...Branham.told.this.story.with.great.
passion,.showing.how.Jesus.knew.everything.about.this.woman.before.she.even.walked.up.to.
the.well..and.He.did..
.
But.like.all.other.stories.in.the.Bible.about.Jesus.Christ,.Branham.tried.to.show.a.loose.connection.
between.this.story.and.his.own.ministry...It.was.the.perfect.way.to.promote.yourself.as.a.god.
before.the.people:.let.them.convince.themselves.that.you.do.the.same.things.that.Jesus.Christ.
did...Let.them.think.that.you.have.the.same.authority.of.the.Father...Let.them.think.that.you.
know.the.thoughts.and.intents.of.the.heart,.and.take.their.minds.off.of.the.fact.that.you.have.
already.written.those."thoughts".on.the.back.of.prayer.cards.and.told.them.to.the.ushers..
.
But.the.focal.point.of.the.Samaritan.Woman.in.the.Bible.is.not.the.secrets.of.the.heart...The.focus.
of. the. story. of. the. Woman. at. the. Well. was. the. sin. in. her. life,. and. God's. perfect. love. and.
forgiveness.of.sin..
.
Since.Seek.The.Truth.started,.several.women.have.told.their."out.of.the.cult".stories,.and.many.
of. them. include. a. very. similar. story.. . Some. of. them. divorced. and. remarried,. many. of. which.
backed.by.scriptural.application...
.
Branham.preached.an.entire.sermon.on.Marriage.and.Divorce.immediately.after.his.son,.Billy.
Paul,.divorced.and.remarried...But.to.support.his.own.son,.Branham.took.the.opposite.standpoint.
of.the.scriptures.in.order.to.tie.his.prior.teaching.on.Marriage.and.Divorce.to.the."failure".of.his.
son...
.
Prior.to."the.fall".of.his.son,.Branham.took.a.stand.(behind.the.pulpit).that.one.could.never.be.
remarried..under.any.circumstances...But.after.this.turn.of.events,.the.doctrine.was.changed.
to.allow.MEN.to.do.this..not.women:.

But. while. pretending. to. preach. the. "Same. Message. as. Paul,". Branham. took. the. opposite.

You.see,.in.the.cult,.we.were.not.only.trained.to.believe.that.this.was.the."unpardonable.sin,".we.
were. trained. to. despise. women.. . Women. were. treated. lowly,. considered. to. be. "just. a.
byproduct."..Yet.another.major.difference.between.the.cult.teaching.and."Paul's.Message.".
.
Cult.pastors.teach.that.remarrying.is.some.strange.sort.of."perpetual.adultery."..Many.of.them.
that.taught.this.have.now.fallen.to.their.own.types.of.adultery..everything.from.pornography.
to.extra\marital.relations...One.pastor.up.north.was.caught.producing.his.own.videos.of.those.
relations...
.
But.when.a.woman.comes.to.their.pastor.with.this.question,.desperate.for.guidance,.they.are.
despised..
.
More.than.one.woman.has.given.their.testimony,.and.described.how.these.vicious.cult.pastors.
had.instructed.them.to.DIVORCE.their.new.husbands!..One.here.in.Jeffersonville.said.that.the.
pastor.humiliated.her..telling.her.that."even.then,.she.would.only.be.a.servant.to.the.Bride.".
.
The.Gospel.of.John,.Chapter.4,.should.be.a.wake\up.call...Pastors.need.to.examine.their.own.
lives,.asking.themselves,."What.Would.Christ.Do?".
.
Too. many. times,. these. pastors. ignore. that. question,. and. they. ask. themselves,. "What. would.
William.Branham.do?"..And.then.they.go.look.for.some.example.in.the.history.of.the.man's.life.
and.try.to.model.their.own.after.it..
.
And.they.really.don't.look.too.hard,.because.if.you.only.examine.William.Branham's.own.siblings,.
you.will.find.that.William.Branham.married.them,.they.divorced,.he.married.them.to.others,.they.
divorced,. and. they. traded. women. around. like. cattle!. . A. different. set. of. rules. apply. to. the.

Branham. clan. . and. some. of. the. pastors. know. it.. . You'll. find. references. to. these. multiple.
marriages.at.www.searchingforvindication.com.
.
They.don't.care,.because.they.have.based.their.example.on.Branham,.and.not.Christ..
.
If.we.were.to.ask.ourselves,."What.Would.Christ.Do,".I.think.many.things.would.be.different.in.
our.lives...These.women.that.went.to.their.pastor.for.spiritual.guidance.would.have.been.given.
the.story.of.the.Woman.at.the.Well,.not.the.mocking,.belittling,.conceited.sermon."Marriage.and.
Divorce."..
.
The.would.have.been.given.Scriptural.examples,.not.unscriptural.recordings...Those.women.that.
have. been. excommunicated. from. the. cult. . even. one. pastor's. own. daughter. . would. have.
been.shown.love.and.not.hate...
.
Jesus.stood.before.a.Samaritan.woman,.a.woman.that.simply.because.of.her.race.was.strongly.
despised.by.the.Jews...And.this.was.a.woman.who.had.married,.divorced,.and.remarried.several.
times..
.
Branham.called.this.woman."a.prostitute."..Many.cult.pastors.teach.this...But.try.to.find.a.SINGLE.
scripture.in.the.Bible.describing.her.as.a.prostitute!.
.
That. simple. derogatory. term. given. by. these. cult. pastors,. following. the. steps. of. their. fearless.
leader,.is.offensive...This.was.a.woman,.riddled.with.the.guilt.of.sin...She.needed.a.Savior.in.her.
life...She.had.not.found.love.on.earth,.several.failed.marriages!..
.
You.cult.pastors,.picture.this.situation...Some.poor.sister.comes.to.you,.a.person.who.knows.and.
believes.God...She.is.desperately.seeking.spiritual.guidance...She.needs.the.Love.of.Christ.in.her.
life,.and.wants.to.learn.more.about.the.Gospel...She.wants.to.APPLY.the.Gospel.to.her.life..
.
Ask.yourself:..What.would.Christ.do?..
.
Would.Christ.stand.before.the.woman.like.some.dictator.with.a.tiny.moustache,.telling.her.to.
leave.that.new.husband.so.that.she."might.make.a.servant.to.the.bride?"..Would.Christ.turn.her.
away,.saying."GET.AWAY.FROM.ME.YOU.FILTHY.PROSTITUTE!".
.
Would. Christ. go. behind. the. people's. backs,. marrying. her. to. other. men. without. his. disciples.
knowing.it..preaching.one.life.and.living.another?.
.
If.you.want.to.know.what.Christ.would.do,.it's.not.that.hard,.really...You.have.to.get.your.head.
out. of. those. tapes. that. have. very. little. to. do. with. your. Bibles.. . You. have. to. take. off. those.
earphones.with.those.MP3s.of.a.man.screaming.like.a.Nazi...You.have.to.throw.out.those.books.

You.have.to.get.BACK.to.the.Word.of.God!..The.Bible.will.show.you.EXACTLY.what.Christ.would.
do!.
.
Since.so.many.cult.pastors.are.unfamiliar.with.this.Book,.let's.read.and.find.out.WHAT.Christ.
would.do...And.let's.see.the.results.of.the.actions.that.Christ.took.as.our.example:.
.
John.Chapter.4:.
.
"Now.when.Jesus.learned.that.the.Pharisees.had.heard.that.Jesus.was.making.and.baptizing.more.
disciples.than.John.(although.Jesus.himself.did.not.baptize,.but.only.his.disciples),"..
.
Notice. the. example.. . Christ. did. not. baptize.. . He. taught. others. to. become. leaders. . not. just.
followers..
.
"he.left.Judea.and.departed.again.for.Galilee...And.he.had.to.pass.through.Samaria...So.he.came.
to.a.town.of.Samaria.called.Sychar,.near.the.field.that.Jacob.had.given.to.his.son.Joseph...Jacob's.
well.was.there;.so.Jesus,.wearied.as.he.was.from.his.journey,.was.sitting.beside.the.well..It.was.
about.the.sixth.hour..
.
A. woman. from. Samaria. came. to. draw. water.. Jesus. said. to. her,. "Give. me. a. drink.". . (For. his.
disciples.had.gone.away.into.the.city.to.buy.food.)..The.Samaritan.woman.said.to.him,."How.is.it.
that.you,.a.Jew,.ask.for.a.drink.from.me,.a.woman.of.Samaria?".(For.Jews.have.no.dealings.with.
Samaritans.)".
.
Think.of.the.cult...What.if.this.were.a.Catholic.woman?..What.if.this.were.a.Baptist.woman?..What.
would.YOU,.a.BRANHAMITE,.want.with.ME?.
.
"Jesus.answered.her,."If.you.knew.the.gift.of.God,.and.who.it.is.that.is.saying.to.you,.'Give.me.a.
drink,'.you.would.have.asked.him,.and.he.would.have.given.you.living.water."..The.woman.said.
to.him,."Sir,.you.have.nothing.to.draw.water.with,.and.the.well.is.deep..Where.do.you.get.that.
living. water?. . Are. you. greater. than. our. father. Jacob?. He. gave. us. the. well. and. drank. from. it.
himself,.as.did.his.sons.and.his.livestock."...Jesus.said.to.her,."Everyone.who.drinks.of.this.water.
will.be.thirsty.again,.but.whoever.drinks.of.the.water.that.I.will.give.him.will.never.be.thirsty.
again..The.water.that.I.will.give.him.will.become.in.him.a.spring.of.water.welling.up.to.eternal.
life."..The.woman.said.to.him,."Sir,.give.me.this.water,.so.that.I.will.not.be.thirsty.or.have.to.come.
here.to.draw.water.".
.
She.didn't.realize.it.yet,.but.Christ.has.just.offered.her.eternal.life...And.Christ.knew.EVERYTHING.
about.her.life...He.knew.who.she.was,.what.she.had.done,.and.knew.of.the.sin.that.had.burdened.
her.life..
.
"Jesus.said.to.her,."Go,.call.your.husband,.and.come.here."..The.woman.answered.him,."I.have.
no.husband.".Jesus.said.to.her,."You.are.right.in.saying,.'I.have.no.husband';..for.you.have.had.

.
This.part.is.more.accurate.than.people.in.the.cult.might.realize...The.Jews.were.taught.to.worship.

Friends,.if.you.are.worshipping.Christ,.you.can.worship.Christ.in.a.Buddhist.temple.if.you.want.
to...Think.of.it!..What.if.you.started.going.around.the.world.to.temples.of.Pagan.worship,.showing.
others.the.power.of.God.in.your.life,.and.converting.masses.into.Christianity!..
.
Paul.wasn't.afraid.to.go.into.the.Pagan.world,.leading.souls.to.Christ!..But.this."message",.the.
"Message.of.William.Branham,".is.MUCH.different.than.the.message.of.Paul!.
.
What.would.Christ.do?.
.
"Jesus.said.to.her,."Woman,.believe.me,.the.hour.is.coming.when.neither.on.this.mountain.nor.
in.Jerusalem.will.you.worship.the.Father...You.worship.what.you.do.not.know;.we.worship.what.
we.know,.for.salvation.is.from.the.Jews...But.the.hour.is.coming,.and.is.now.here,.when.the.true.
worshipers.will.worship.the.Father.in.spirit.and.truth,.for.the.Father.is.seeking.such.people.to.
worship.him..God.is.spirit,.and.those.who.worship.him.must.worship.in.spirit.and.truth.".The.
woman.said.to.him,."I.know.that.Messiah.is.coming.(he.who.is.called.Christ)..When.he.comes,.he.
will.tell.us.all.things.".Jesus.said.to.her,."I.who.speak.to.you.am.he.".
.
This.is.HE!..This.is.the.One.who.is.worthy.of.all.praise!..
.
Notice.HOW.he.said.that.he.would.worship...In.spirit.and.in.TRUTH!..He.wouldn't.send.disciples.
into. the. land. to. tell. fictional. stories. of. squirrels,. bears,. cabins. in. Kentucky,. and. the. length. of.
antlers!..Who.CARES.about.these.things!.
.
What.if.that.woman.looked.up.at.Christ.and.said,."Sir.I.believe.you.are.a.prophet,.but.our.prophet.
has.seen.as.squirrel!".
.
Even.the.disciples.were.amazed.at.this.display.of.the.Love.of.God...Listen.to.this.next.part:.
.
"Just.then.his.disciples.came.back..They.marveled.that.he.was.talking.with.a.woman,.but.no.one.
said,."What.do.you.seek?".or,."Why.are.you.talking.with.her?"..So.the.woman.left.her.water.jar.
and.went.away.into.town.and.said.to.the.people,.."Come,.see.a.man.who.told.me.all.that.I.ever.
did..Can.this.be.the.Christ?"..They.went.out.of.the.town.and.were.coming.to.him..

Meanwhile.the.disciples.were.urging.him,.saying,."Rabbi,.eat.".But.he.said.to.them,."I.have.food.
to.eat.that.you.do.not.know.about.".So.the.disciples.said.to.one.another,."Has.anyone.brought.
him.something.to.eat?".34.Jesus.said.to.them,."My.food.is.to.do.the.will.of.him.who.sent.me.and.
to.accomplish.his.work..Do.you.not.say,.'There.are.yet.four.months,.then.comes.the.harvest'?.

who.reaps.is.receiving.wages.and.gathering.fruit.for.eternal.life,.so.that.sower.and.reaper.may.
rejoice.together...For.here.the.saying.holds.true,.'One.sows.and.another.reaps.'..I.sent.you.to.
reap. that. for. which. you. did. not. labor.. Others. have. labored,. and. you. have. entered. into. their.
labor.".

immediate.fruit.of.our.labor...But.what.we.do.not.realize.is.that.by.standing.there.hovering.over.
it,.we.are.no.longer.scattering.seed...And.worse,.we.are.blocking.the.SONlight..
.
I've. asked. you,. "What. Would. Christ. Do.". . I've. showed. you. by. example. what. Christ. did. . it's.
written.in.the.Word.of.God...
.
Christ.did.not.turn.the.woman.away...He.did.not.call.her.a."prostitute."..Christ.did.not.discriminate.
against.women.like.these.abusive.cult.leaders.and.pastors...
.
Because.Christ.showed.the.woman.perfect.love,.listen.to.what.happened.in.that.city:.
.
"Many.Samaritans.from.that.town.believed.in.him.because.of.the.woman's.testimony,."He.told.
me.all.that.I.ever.did."..So.when.the.Samaritans.came.to.him,.they.asked.him.to.stay.with.them,.
and.he.stayed.there.two.days...And.many.more.believed.because.of.his.word...They.said.to.the.
woman,. "It. is. no. longer. because. of. what. you. said. that. we. believe,. for. we. have. heard. for.
ourselves,.and.we.know.that.this.is.indeed.the.Savior.of.the.world.".
.
Notice...Some.believed.because.Jesus.was.all\knowing...That,.again,.is.the.focal.point.of.the.story.
in.the.cult...But.listen.to.what.came.immediately.after.this.statement:.
.
And.many.more.believed.because.of.his.word..
.
.
.
There.were.people.that.were.converted.into.Christians.when.William.Branham.used.his.parlor.
tricks.with.those.prayer.cards,.people.who.never.knew.Christ.at.all.in.their.lives...Many.of.them.
continued.on.to.their.Bibles,.to.learn.the.REAL.Christ.of.the.Bible,.not.the.one.that.Branham.
taught.who."had.to.see.a.vision.from.the.Father.before.He.could.heal.one.person.".
.
But.think.of.the.massive.impact.on.the.world.if.Branham.instead.had.brought.the.people.together.
over.the.Word.of.God!..Look.around.right.now,.the.entire.cult.is.falling.apart.after.learning.just.

Their.foundation.was.not.the.Bible!..If.the.foundation.of.the.cult.was.the.Bible,.it.wouldn't.matter.
at.all.if.Branham.lied..they.would.have.just.considered.him.a.sinner.and.continued.on.in.the.

.
For.the.past.year.and.a.half,.we.have.focused.on.exposing.the.many."truths".we.once.held.dear.
that.have.been.proven.complete.fiction..We.were.told.that.the."prophesies".of.William.Branham.
never.failed.\\.not.one.time.\\.and.yet.we.struggle.to.find.a.single.one."prophesied".before.the.
event.that.actually.came.to.pass..
.
We.were.told.that.the.sermons.were.absolute.Bible.Truth.."No.creed.but.Christ,.no.law.but.Love.".
But.yet,.we.find.the.entire.cult.IS.a.new.creed..We.find.that.this.new.creed.is.based.upon.several.
"laws".that.cannot.be.supported.by.scripture..And.we.find.that.these.laws.do.NOT.produce.the.
Love.that.Christ.displayed.when.He.came.to.earth.for.the.salvation.of.the.lost.and.dying.world..
.
We.were.told.that.William.Branham.came.with."Thus.Saith.The.Lord,".and.that.when.he.spoke.
those. words,. they. were. directly. from. God.. Yet. we. find. these. words. associated. with. failed.
prophecies,.pipe.dreams,.and.even.unscriptural.teachings,.such.as.his.heretical.statement.that.
"Women.who.cut.their.hair.should.be.divorced.".
.
I.don't.believe.there.is.any.aspect.of.William.Branham's.life.that.can.be.exposed.in.such.a.way.
that.can.be.worse.than.claiming."Thus.Saith.The.Lord".on.a.statement.that.was.actually."Thus.
Saith.William.Branham.".His.past,.his.sermons,.his.failed.prophecies,.and.his.fictional.life.stories.

the. Gospel. of. Jesus. Christ. actually. is.. Others. base. their. understanding. on. the. very. limited.

that.they.are.being.taught.a.different.gospel..
.
While.we.will.still.be.answering.questions.in.private.or.in.our.public.forums.regarding.the.failed.
ministry.of.William.Branham,.our.main.focus.will.be.presenting.others.with.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.
Christ.that.is.found.in.the.Bible..The.idea.is.to.get.people.familiar.with.reading.their.Bibles.without.

Rules$
.
I.believe.that.the.Holy.Bible.is.a.rulebook...It.is.a.handbook.that.we.can.use.through.life.to.lead.
us.and.guide.us.into.all.Truth...
.
But. I. do. not. believe. that. it. is. the. same. rulebook. that. you. will. find. in. religion. today.. . Human.
tradition.has.created.religion,.and.that.religion.is.far.distant.from.the.Church.of.the.Living.God...
So.many.today.have.long.forgotten.the.Author..
.
I.use.the.word."religion,".because.there.is.a.vast.difference.between."religion".and.Christianity...
The.one.of.the.very.first.things.that.Christ.did.when.he.came.was.point.out.this.difference.to.the.
"holy".Pharisees..
.
God.gave.us.His.Word...It.is.a.gift...One.that.was.protected.by.God,.all.down.through.time,.through.
the.hands.of.many.scribes.and.translators,.separated.through.misguided.translations.but.brought.
back.together.so.that.you.and.I.can.learn.more.about.Him...God.WANTS.us.to.have.His.Word,.
because.He.IS.the.Word..
.
John.1:1.says.that."In.the.beginning.was.the.Word,.and.the.Word.was.with.God,.and.the.Word.
was.God."..
.
That.same.Word.that.was.the.creator.of.the.heavens.and.the.earth.is.the.same.Word.that.led.the.
children.of.Israel.into.the.Promised.Land...That.same.Word.that.became.flesh.and.was.crucified.
for.our.sins.is.the.same.Word.that.promised.to.return.for.His.Children...It's.the.same.Word.that.
will.one.day.return.to.sit.on.the.Throne.as.our.King..
.
But. many. times,. we. look. for. ways. to. improve. what. we. read. in. that. Book.. . Religion,. through.
tradition,.has.taken.a.basic.set.of.rules.and.principals.that.God.gave.us.as.our.guide,.and.changed.
them.into.something.else.entirely...What.they.do.not.realize.is.that.by.doing.so,.they.are.greatly.
hurting.themselves.without.any.reward..
.
When.Adam.and.Eve.walked.in.the.Garden,.they.had.one.simple.rule...Many.have.argued.about.
what.this.rule.was,.trying.to.make.the."tree".into.some.sort.of.sexual.innuendo,.but.the.rule.was.
quite.simple...God.simply.told.Adam.and.Eve,."Here.is.something.I.do.not.want.you.to.do...Do.not.
do.it."..
.
And.it.was.for.their.own.good..
.
Eve.was.deceived.into.breaking.this.rule...Adam.knowingly.broke.this.rule...Satan.stood.there.in.
the.Garden.rejoicing,.because.he.had.tricked.Eve.into.persuading.Adam.to.disobey.God...This.is.
where.our.trouble.begins..

You. see,. before. this,. they. knew. no. sin.. . They. lived. fully. under. Grace.. . Adam. and. Eve. walked.
through.the.garden.breaking.the."rules".of.religion.today...They.were.naked...But.they.did.not.
know.what."naked".was..
.
When.they.both.were.given.knowledge.of.good.and.evil,.this.presented.a.big.problem...Satan.
was.right.there,.tempting.them.just.as.he.did.before.with.Eve...But.now,.rather.than.living.fully.
under. Grace,. they. would. have. knowledge. and. understanding. of. right. and. wrong.. . They. had.
discernment..
.
This.knowledge.made.them.realize.that.they.were.naked...I'm.sure.it.must.have.felt.strange.to.
them,.never.having.worried.about.showing.their.flesh.before!..There.were.only.two.of.them..
was.it.wrong.to.look.at.each.other's.flesh?..
.
They.had.knowledge.of.good.and.evil,.but.they.did.not.know.how.to.apply.this.knowledge...So.
rather.than.find.out.what.God.wanted.them.to.do,.they.made.a.rule:.."Let's.cover.ourselves.with.
these.leaves!".
.
Notice.that.this.is.the.very.first.rule.ever.made.by.man.and.not.God...And.notice.that.this.rule,.
though.seemingly.correct,.did.not.please.God...God.does.not.care.about.man's.rules,.He.only.
cares.about.one.thing:..What.He.desires.for.His.people...He.had.given.them.one.simple.rule,.they.
broke.it,.and.now.the.entire.race.was.destined.to.fall..
.
Though.it.is.very.difficult.to.understand.after.years.of.tradition,.God's.rules.are.there.to.help.us...
They.are.not.there.to.punish.us...They.are.not.there.to.set.meaningless.boundaries...They.are.not.
intended.to.impose.guidelines.that.do.not.have.any.bearing.on.our.daily.lives...God.gives.us.His.
rules.to.make.our.lives.better..
.
Like.so.many.traditions.we.follow,.Cain.followed.a.rule.of.God..but.he.twisted.it.into.something.
else...After.learning.about.good.and.evil,.a.sacrifice.was.required...That.sacrifice.was.for.their.
good;.the.blood.of.the.animal.was.atonement.for.sin...
.
Having.knowledge.of.good.and.evil.is.a.heavy.weight...For.the."good,".it.is.no.problem,.but.for.
the."evil,".there.comes.guilt...And.with.guilt.comes.inward.pain.and.internal.suffering...While.it.
may.seem.silly.to.us.in.today's.world,.mankind.needed.a.way.to.lift.that.pain.and.suffering.from.
their.sin...God.decided.to.let.them.exchange.it.for.the.blood.of.a.lamb,.lifting.their.weights.from.
off.of.their.shoulders..
.
But.over.time,.those.weights.became.heavier.and.heavier...God.loved.mankind,.but.mankind.did.
not.love.him...God.was.very.faithful.to.His.children,.sparing.even.the.smallest.number.of.pure.
hearts...
.
While.God.was.ready.to.cleanse.the.world.of.mankind.and.start.over,.Noah.found.favor.in.God's.
sight,.having.the.love.and.kindness.that.God.wants.us.to.have..

The.knowledge.of.good.and.evil.is.a.two\sided.coin...While.the.entire.world.chose.the.evil.side,.
Noah. chose. good.. . Noah. found. Grace,. that. same. Grace. that. was. in. the. Garden. in. the. very.
beginning,.in.the.eyes.of.the.Lord...Because.of.this.Grace,.Noah's.family.was.spared...God.is.so.
faithful.that.the.entire.world.may.be.stripped.away.from.you,.but.if.you.are.standing.in.His.Grace,.
you.will.find.His.hand.of.protection.covering.you.from.all.danger..
.
The.problem.is.that.even.after.God.spared.Noah.and.his.small.family,.the.fact.still.remained:..
They.had.knowledge.of.good.and.evil...Good.brings.righteousness,.but.the.evil.of.curiosity.and.
sinful.desire.brings.destruction..
.
Mankind.knew.what.was.right...It.knew.what.was.wrong...But.it.still.did.not.fully.understand.why.
the.desire.to.sin.continually.caused.them.to.fall...
.
Like.so.many.today,.they.felt.like.the.blood.of.the.sacrifice.was.not.enough...They.wanted.to.take.
things.into.their.own.hands...Man.desires.to.be.more.like.God,.and.therefore.has.a.strong.desire.
to.save.himself..
.
And.they.were.no.longer.under.Grace,.as.Adam.and.Eve.were.in.the.beginning...Man.was.born.
into.sin,.given.the.choice.between.right.and.wrong,.and.continually.bound.by.the.weight.of.sin...
The.blood.was.the.only.way.to.atone.for.that.sin,.and.still.they.wanted.to.find.a.better.way!..
.
They.wanted.rules..
.
Many.pastors.today.won't.tell.you.this,.but.when.Moses.returned.from.the.mountain.with.the.
Law,.there.were.only.ten.rules...They.were.God's.rules,.and.they.were.intended.for.the.good.of.
the.people...
.
They.were.broad.in.scope...God.wanted.the.people.to.interpret.these.rules.for.themselves..not.
imposed.by.authoritative.pastors...And.Jesus.tells.us.that.all.ten.of.these.rules.are.summed.up.
into.two.simple.rules:.
.
Love.the.Lord.thy.God.with.all.of.your.heart,.mind,.and.soul,.and.love.your.neighbor.as.you.love.
yourself..
.
It's. very. simple.. . You. don't. need. scribes. and. Pharisees. pouring. over. the. scripture,. trying. to.
determine.how.strictly.or.loosely.we.enforce.those.rules...We.don't.need.interpreters.to.gleam.
understanding.through.ancient.text.and.try.to.see.if.a.period.or.comma.is.possibly.misplaced,.
leading.to.a.completely.different.rule...We.don't.need.ancient.archaeology.to.study.the.ancient.
culture.and.tell.us.how.those.words.apply.to.Paul's.day,.or.scholars.to.study.ancient.dialects.to.
tell.us.how.the.grammatical.rules.apply..
.
You.can.make.these.choices.for.yourselves!..That.is.the.way.that.God.wants.it.to.be!.

The.children.of.Israel.were.not.satisfied.with.the.Ten.Commandments...They.were.ten.simple.
rules,.all.bound.in.Love,.and.open.for.their.own.interpretation..
.
If.you.love.God.with.all.your.heart,.mind,.and.soul,.you.will.not.put.any.other.gods.before.Him...
You.will.not.make.a.graven.image.of.another.god.to.bow.down.and.serve.it...You.will.not.take.His.
name.in.vain...He.is.your.GOD..
.
If.you.love.your.neighbor,.you.will.not.make.him.work.until.he.is.bone\weary...You.will.not.make.
YOURSELF.work.until.you.are.bone\weary...You.will.take.a.day.and.rest.from.your.labor..
.
You.will.love.your.mother.and.your.father...You.will.respect.them.if.you.love.them.as.you.love.
yourself...You.will.not.dishonor.them..
.
You.will.not.murder.your.brother.if.you.love.him...He.is.your.brother..
.
You.will.not.sleep.with.another.woman.if.you.love.your.wife...She.is.your.wife..
.
You.won't.steal,.or.lie...You.would.not.want.someone.doing.this.to.you..
.
If.you.love.your.neighbor,.you.won't.make.him.feel.guilty.over.the.blessings.God.has.given.him...
You.will.not.covet.his.possessions..they.are.his..
.
After.God.explained.these.Ten.Commandments.to.Moses,.the.Covenant.was.confirmed...Not.the.
Covenant.that.would.later.be.known.as.the.Old.Covenant.or.the.Mosaic.Law,.but.the.very.first.
covenant.between.God.and.man.that.was.given.to.Moses...Exodus.24.describes.Moses.confirming.
the.Covenant.with.blood..
.
But.when.Moses.returned.up.the.Mountain.to.receive.the.stone.tables,.the.people.began.forming.
religion...The.men.and.women.melted.their.earrings.and.other.jewelry,.and.broke.the.first.two.
Commandments.before.Moses.even.descended.from.the.Mountain!..They.made.a.graven.image.
and. started. bowing. down. to. it!. . Immediately. after. agreeing. to. the. Covenant. of. God,. they.
breached.it!.
.
The.Mosaic.Law.was.not.the.Ten.Commandments.written.on.stone.and.carried.by.Moses...When.
Moses. descended. and. saw. the. evil. in. the. people,. he. smashed. those. stones. into. a. thousand.
pieces!..They.had.broken.the.Law.before.the.Law.was.even.presented.to.them!.
.
Exodus.34,.along.with.the.entire.rest.of.the.Old.Testament,.is.a.good.example.for.us...Sometimes.
when.I.read.the.Old.Testament,.I.am.amazed.that.God.would.use.an.entire.generation.of.people.
as.an.example.for.us.today...It.is.awe\inspiring.that.God.loves.us.SO.much.that.He.will.write.his.

Love.instead.of.religion..

another...And.this.one.had.exactly.what.they.wanted:..rule.after.rule.after.rule...So.many.rules.
that.it.filled.an.entire.two.more.books!.
.
Then,.as.an.example.of.why.we.need.God.instead.of.religion,.the.entire.race.of.Jews.spent.the.
next.several.hundred.years.breaking.those.rules!..
.
They. were. very. harsh. rules,. far. from. the. simple. Law. of. Love. that. was. in. the. first. covenant...
Children.were.stoned.for.disobeying...If.you.touched.the.wrong.animal,.you.were.abandoned.and.
left.in.the.wilderness...If.your.genitals.were.injured,.you.could.not.enter.the.congregation...
.
The.original.rules.were.simple...Easy.to.follow...Love.God...Love.your.brothers.and.sisters...Live.

of.Love...If.you.are.angry,.you.are.guilty.of.murder...If.you.looked.at.a.woman.with.a.lustful.eye,.
you.were.committing.adultery.in.your.heart..
.
But.like.today,.the.Pharisees.could.not.understand.what.Christ.was.telling.them...They.listened.
to.his.words,.and.searched.their.minds.for.the.rules.associated.with.these.examples,.and.found.
none...There.was.no.rule.against.being.angry...There.was.no.rule.against.lusting.after.a.woman...
.
They.are.examples.of.how.we.can.justify.ourselves.by.our."rules,".while.still.being.filled.with.evil.
of.the.heart..
.
Religion.today.will.amplify.these.statements,.gleaning.new.rules.from.the.letters.of.text...Like.the.
Pharisees,.they.are.focused.on.the.rules.more.than.they.are.focused.on.the.reason.those.rules.
were.given...Sometimes,.to.the.point.of.establishing.rules.that.cause.us.to.break.the.Law.of.Love...
They.think.that.Christ.was.giving.us.more."rules,".simply.because.they.refuse.to.read.that.chapter.
in.context.of.the.chapters.before.and.after..
.
Since. the. Pentecostal. movement. began. in. the. United. States,. many. new. rules. were. added. to.
religion...Some.rules.were.nothing.more.than.custom,.older.custom,.made.by.men.who.were.
unwilling.to.allow.change...Other.rules.were.misinterpretations.that.the.rest.of.the.world.was.
already.starting.to.realize.to.be.false..
.
We.came.into.this.world.naked,.without.anything.to.show...We.die.in.much.the.same.way,.after.
our.clothing.rots.from.our.decayed.bodies...God.does.not.care.about.the.things.of.the.flesh,.the.

things.that.we.value.and.respect...God.does.not.care.how.we.look,.the.outward.appearance.that.
is.so.bound.by.culture.and.custom..
.
Men.in.the.Bible.wore.robes,.what.we.would.call.dresses...Woman.wore.breeches...Men."girded.
up.their.loins,".turning.their.robes.into.what.we.would.call.shorts...Togas,.kilts,.and.more.were.
customs.for.days.gone.by,.and.we.do.not.find.a.single.instance.in.scripture.where.the.Lord.told.
Moses,."Thou.shalt.not.let.thine.men.wear.kilts.and.expose.their.nether.regions."..
.
When. God. was. describing. to. Moses. the. correct. way. to. build. an. altar,. He. told. Moses. that. he.
absolutely.HATED.the.flesh...They.were.not.to.touch.their.tools.to.the.stone...If.man\made.tools.
touched.the.stones.of.the.altar,.God.considered.that.alter.to.be.profane...And.God.considered.
those."dresses".that.the.men.wore.to.be.no.more.than.nakedness...Exodus.20:22.says,."And.you.
shall.not.go.up.by.steps.to.my.altar,.that.your.nakedness.be.not.exposed.on.it.".
.
But.we.have.become.so.focused.on.these.rules,.that.we.have.trained.ourselves.to.think.that.our.
God.has.the.same.mind.of.a.human...We.think.that.the.things.we.detest,.God.must.also.detest...
We.think.that.the.things.we.love,.God.must.also.love...This.is.exactly.BACKWARDS.from.the.way.
it.should.be!..
.
The.Things.that.God.detests,.we.should.detest!..The.things.that.God.loves,.we.should.also.love!.
.
God.detests.false.prophets...Yet.we.have.a.large.number.of.false.prophets.associated.with.the.
Pentecostal. movement. that. are. revered. and. respected.. . God. detests. sorcery.. . Yet. we. have.
Christians.today..in.religion..who.live.their.lives.by.the.numbers,.the.Zodiac,.the.Horoscopes,.
and.more...The.very.sorcery.that.men.and.women.in.the.Bible.were.stoned.for.is.completely.
overlooked.by.so.many.Christians.today!.
.
But.while.the.Pentecostal.movement.ignored.the.things.that.broke.the.first.two.Commandments,.
they.added.several.rules.that.had.absolutely.NOTHING.to.do.with.the.rest.of.the.Commandments..
.
Wearing.a.long.dress.does.not.make.you.love.your.neighbor...Your.neighbor.will.not.love.you.
because.you.wear.a.long.dress..unless.he.is.a.little.creepy.and.into.that.sort.of.thing...
.
But.it.will.make.you.look.down.on.others.who.do.not.enjoy.your.choice.in.wardrobe...You.will.fall.
into.the.sin.of.pride.simply.by.the.man\made.rule.that.was.based.entirely.upon.custom...And.not.
custom.of.other.nations,.based.entirely.upon.custom.in.the.United.States.during.the.late.1800's.
and.early.1900's..
.
If.you.love.your.sister.in.Northern.Ukraine,.you.won't.be.giving.her.dresses...It's.too.cold...You'll.
be.giving.her.the.thickest,.warmest.pair.of.pants.that.you.can.possibly.find.for.her...She.isn't.from.
the.United.States...She.doesn't.care.about.the.custom.of.the.United.States...She.isn't.concerned.
with.the.custom.of.women.wearing.breeches.in.the.ancient.world,.how.the.men.wore.togas.or.
robes. in. ancient. Corinth,. or. even. what. the. Children. of. Israel. wore. as. they. journeyed. to. the.

the.cold!.
.
The.length.of.your.hair.does.not.show.love.to.your.brother.or.sister...I.recently.saw.a.group.of.
women.shave.their.heads.for.a.poor.little.girl.who.was.suffering.with.cancer...She.was.crying.
because.her.hair.was.falling.out.due.to.the.radiation,.and.was.ashamed.of.how.she.looked..
.
Women.banded.together.to.show.their.support,.and.shaved.their.heads.to.show.her.that.you.
CAN.shave.your.head.and.still.be.beautiful...They.showed.more.of.the.Love.of.Christ.than.an.
entire.church.of.women.with.hair.to.their.bottoms.that.speak.evil.of.those."other.women".who.
cut.their.hair..
.
The. problem. is. that. when. you. start. adding. man\made\rules,. those. rules. that. have. absolutely.
nothing.to.do.with.the.Love.of.God.or.the.Love.of.your.fellow.man,.there.is.really.no.place.to.
stop...As.rules.are.added,.new.rules.must.be.added.to.support.those.rules...It.becomes.a.never\
ending.cycle,.each.rule.placing.a.weight.upon.the.shoulders.of.the.person.trapped.into."religion.".
.
Some.have.rules.on.facial.hair...Some.have.rules.on.musical.instruments...Some.have.rules.on.
how.much.toe.can.be.exposed.through.the.ends.of.your.shoes...We.laugh.at.some.of.these.rules,.
but.while.laughing.at.our.brothers.and.sisters.who.have.invented.their.own.man\made.rules,.we.
are.bound.by.our.own...
.
At.some.point,.now.that.these.rules.have.gotten.out.of.hand,.we.must.ask.ourselves:..Which.rule.
is.greater?..
.
The.Bible.DOES.tell.us.to.be.modest...So.is.the.law.about.not.showing.the.other.brothers.your.
"sexy.toes".greater.than.the.law.that.permits.the."sexy.knees"?..Is.that.law.greater.because.it.is.
more.modest?.
.
Until.you.realize.that.modesty.has.more.to.do.with.pride.than.with.exposure.of.flesh,.you.will.
never.understand.these.words.of.Jesus.Christ:.
.
"'Love.the.Lord.your.God.with.all.your.heart.and.with.all.your.soul.and.with.all.your.mind.'..This.
is.the.first.and.greatest.commandment...And.the.second.is.like.it:.'Love.your.neighbor.as.yourself.'...
All.the.Law.and.the.Prophets.hang.on.these.two.commandments.".

Boundaries$$
.
All.of.the.people.I.have.spoken.with.that.have.now.made.their.exodus.from.a.cult.seem.to.have.
one.thing.in.common:..The.most.difficult.time.in.their.lives.was.when.they.decided.to.take.that.
first.step.through.the.invisible.boundaries.of.their.religion..
.
When.people.today.hear.the.word.cult,.they.associate.it.with.the.extreme.cults...They.associate.
this. word. with. religious. compounds. held. by. madmen,. such. as. David. Koresh. of. the. Branch.
Davidians.or.the.city.of.Jonestown.where.evangelist.and.divine.healer.Jim.Jones.lead.his.entire.
congregations.to.their.death.through.mass.suicide..
.
What.they.do.not.realize.is.that.the.visible.boundaries.of.the.cult.extremists.were.not.always.so.
well.defined...There.isnt.a.person.in.this.world.who.would.walk.up.to.a.run\down,.old.building.
that.looks.like.it.once.held.a.great.battle.between.mafia.warlords,.one.that.is.guarded.by.men.
with.assault.rifles,.and.say,.Hey!..This.looks.like.the.religion.for.me!..I.think.I.can.find.God.in.
there!.
.
The.Apostle.Paul.spoke.of.the.men.that.would.come.to.deceive...All.through.the.New.Testament,.
the. Apostles. speak. of. the. false. prophets. that. would. rise,. and. the. false. teachers. that. would.
mislead...These.wolves.in.sheeps.clothing.also.have.one.thing.in.common:.their.ambition.is.to.
sever.the.Body.of.Christ...
.
The.entire.book.of.Jude.is.a.warning.to.the.Church...Get.ready...Its.coming...These.guys.will.sound.
sincere,.they.will.seem.religious,.and.inside.they.are.nothing.but.filthy,.dirty,.scoundrels!..

warming.that.pew.if.you.thought.you.were.in.the.wrong.place..youd.quickly.make.an.exit.for.
the.door...There.are.many.different.understandings.of.Scripture,.and.until.the.Lord.returns.to.
take.us.home,.there.is.absolutely.no.way.for.us.to.have.all.of.the.answers.until.all.things.hidden.
are.made.known...
.
There.is.a.correct.and.just.way.to.live.your.lives,.and.that.is.according.to.what.we.read.in.the.
Bible...As.Christians,.we.are.to.walk.in.the.examples.given.by.Christ,.and.are.to.have.the.love,.
kindness,.gentleness,.longsuffering,.and.other.gifts.of.the.Spirit..
.
Imagine.if.Jesus,.our.example,.would.have.separated.Himself.from.everyone.who.did.not.see.and.
understand.the.scriptures.the.same.way.that.He.did...Or.the.Apostle.Paul,.who.travelled.into.
cities.with.pagan.temples.devoted.to.Greek.and.Roman.gods.or.demigods...If.the.early.Church.
had.separated.itself,.there.would.not.have.been.a.Church.today..

in.His.name..
.
There.is.no.other.pathway.that.leads.to.salvation...The.group.of.people.that.you.sit.with.listening.
to.a.sermon.every.Sunday.is.just.that:.a.group.of.people...The.denomination.of.faith.that.you.
chose. . even. if. it. is. one. of. these. non\denominational. denominations. . is. just. that.. . It. is. a.
denomination.of.faith...It.is.a.group.of.people.who.are.together.because.they.hold.a.common.set.
of.values...
.
New. denominations. that. spring. up. are. usually. proclaiming. all. denominations. are. welcome,.
come.join.us!.
.
But.after.their.number.has.grown,.and.after.tradition.has.set.in,.they.start.to.form.boundaries...
The.common.theology.that.brought.them.together.becomes.doctrine,.and.that.doctrine.becomes.
law...Any.who.do.not.conform.to.that.law.should.join.some.other.group.of.people,.because.they.
cant.see.eye\to\eye..
.
What.happens.next.is.in.the.hand.of.God...All.throughout.history,.great.men.like.Martin.Luther.
began.reformations.that.gave.the.Church.tremendous.spiritual.growth...Today,.all.denominations.
of.faith.are.better.because.of.the.stand.that.Luther.took.against.the.authoritative.structure.of.
the.church...Luther.broke.down.boundaries.that.once.corralled.the.people.into.a.very.damaging.
way.of.life,.and.because.of.his.example,.men.are.not.given.the.same.level.of.power.as.before..
.
Luthers. reformation. opened. the. door. to. fellowshipping. around. the. Word. of. God. with. no.
boundaries...Knowledge.and.understanding.of.the.scripture.has.greatly.increased.because.great.
men.reasoned.out.the.Scriptures.together.instead.of.bowed.down.to.one.mans.understanding.
of.the.text...Many.things.that.we.now.believe.were.not.common.beliefs.in.the.early.Church..
.
But.some.groups.of.people.rise.who.fall.into.the.same.error.that.made.Luther.take.his.stand...
Because.one.seems.to.be.a.teacher,.or.one.has.a.spiritual.gift,.or.simply.because.one.already.has.
power,.some.religious.groups.will.raise.one.man.into.authority.over.their.group.of.people...
.
If.we.were.still.under.Mosaic.Law,.and.following.the.Old.Testament.leaders.as.our.example,.this.
would.be.correct...The.Hebrews.1:1.says,.Long.ago,.at.many.times.and.in.many.ways,.God.spoke.
to.our.fathers.by.the.prophets.
.
The.problem.is.that.when.cults.rise.with.authoritative.figures,.this.verse.is.often.quoted.without.
focusing. on. the. second. verse. in. that. chapter.. . Nor. do. they. focus. on. the. Long. ago. part. . it.
doesnt.fit.their.agenda..
.
When.we.read.the.entire.chapter.in.context,.we.find.that.New.Covenant.Grace.is.much.different.
than. Old. Covenant. Law.. . The. Children. of. Israel. were. called. to. be. separatists,. but. the. New.

Reading.the.next.few.verses.in.Hebrews.1,.we.find.that.we.have.a.new.Leader...That.Leader.is.
not.a.man:.
.
Long.ago,.at.many.times.and.in.many.ways,.God.spoke.to.our.fathers.by.the.prophets,.but.in.
these.last.days.he.has.spoken.to.us.by.his.Son,.whom.he.appointed.the.heir.of.all.things,.through.
whom.also.he.created.the.world...He.is.the.radiance.of.the.glory.of.God.and.the.exact.imprint.of.

Separation.can.only.come.through.the.doctrines.of.men...God.does.not.want.us.to.sever.ourselves.
from.others.who.believe.in.His.Name...
.
The.best.example.in.scripture.is.given.in.1.Corinthians.12:.
.
For.just.as.the.body.is.one.and.has.many.members,.and.all.the.members.of.the.body,.though.
many,.are.one.body,.so.it.is.with.Christ...For.in.one.Spirit.we.were.all.baptized.into.one.body
Jews.or.Greeks,.slaves.or.freeand.all.were.made.to.drink.of.one.Spirit..

For.the.body.does.not.consist.of.one.member.but.of.many...If.the.foot.should.say,.Because.I.am.
not.a.hand,.I.do.not.belong.to.the.body,.that.would.not.make.it.any.less.a.part.of.the.body...And.
if.the.ear.should.say,.Because.I.am.not.an.eye,.I.do.not.belong.to.the.body,.that.would.not.

Rather.than.taking.the.example.of.Christ.and.making.new.shepherds,.these.separatist.cults.
would.rather.make.new.sheep...And.they.like.to.keep.those.sheep.well\sheared...
.
Before.physical.boundaries.are.visible,.cult.leaders.will.build.invisible.barriers.against.all.other.
Christian.groups.that.are.not.in.full.agreement.with.their.own.denomination.of.faith...Sometimes.
those.barriers.are.established.before.the.denomination.itself.is.established...
.
These.invisible.boundaries.are.intended.to.keep.the.sheep.on.the.inside,.which.greatly.hinders.
the.spreading.of.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ...It.doesnt.take.very.long.before.salvation.is.no.longer.
preached.to.those.outside.of.the.barriers...Once.the.boundaries.are.established,.and.those.on.
the.inside.are.considered.to.be.saved,.salvation.is.preached.only.to.the.saved..
.
And.more.often.than.not,.that.salvation.has.very.little.to.do.with.Jesus.Christ...Instead,.it.has.
more.to.do.with.those.boundaries.that.have.been.established..
.
This.creates.an.us.verses.them.mentality...Those.on.the.inside.are.your.dearest.and.closest.
friends...Those.on.the.outside.are.lost.and.dying...You.would.love.to.reach.out.and.help.them...
Your.heart.is.bleeding.for.them...But.they.wont.accept.your.boundaries,.and.so.they.are.doomed.
to.hell..
.
Your. fellow. sheep. then. become. closer. to. you. than. ever. before.. . Doctrinal. boundaries. then.
become.lined.with.emotional.boundaries...As.humans,.we.draw.closer.to.those.with.common.
interests.and.ambitions..
.
But.this.is.unhealthy.for.spiritual.growth...If.Martin.Luther.had.never.broken.down.these.barriers,.
open.discussion.of.the.Bible.would.never.have.been.permitted...We.would.all.still.be.under.the.
authority.of.the.small.group.of.men.of.the.church.instead.of.under.the.authority.of.Christ.our.

And.it.is.unhealthy.for.relationships...Most.cults.will.not.admit.to.pre\arranged.marriages,.but.at.
the.same.time,.you.wont.find.too.many.people.marrying.outside.of.the.cult...What.once.was.a.
wide.world.of.fish.in.the.sea.becomes.a.small.number.of.goldfish.in.the.fish.bowl..

sheep,.following.the.Great.Shepherd...But.as.His.sheep,.we.are.supposed.to.be.warriors.for.the.

The.only.thing.that.Satan.can.do.is.to.deceive.the.army.of.the.Lord.into.making.their.weapons.
dull...He.has.no.power.to.strengthen.his.own.forces,.and.so.he.causes.large.groups.of.Christians.
to.bundle.themselves.into.corrals.and.stop.fighting...He.has.no.power.to.stop.the.spreading.of.
the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ,.so.he.causes.us.to.stop.spreading.it.OURSELVES!.
.
Like.I.said,.the.most.difficult.time.in.the.lives.of.any.who.have.fled.a.cult.was.trying.to.tear.through.
those. boundaries.. . Some. faced. religious. boundaries,. fearing. certain. death. if. they. even.
questioned.their.faith...Others.faced.emotional.boundaries,.struggling.to.let.go.of.the.friends.
they.once.held.dear.within.the.invisible.compound..because.they.knew.that.once.they.set.foot.
into.the.sunlight,.those.left.behind.would.soon.forget.their.name..
.
Some. even. faced. financial. boundaries.. . Living. under. a. highly. modified. version. of. the. Old.

sheep...This.money.is.often.used.to.help.those.inside.the.walls.of.the.invisible.compound,.seldom.
used.outside.the.perimeter,.and.many.grow.dependent.upon.this.financial.aid..
.
To.tear.a.hole.through.these.boundaries.was.to.tear.a.gaping.hole.into.your.own.heart...No.person.
in.their.right.mind.wants.to.leave.friends.and.family.behind...No.person.sets.out.with.an.ambition.
of.ripping.their.own.heart.out.from.their.chest.and.throwing.it.to.the.wolves!.

fingers.cracked.and.bled.from.the.digging.through.the.scriptures.as.they.breached.the.defensive.

Finding$Comfort$In$Grace$$$
.
The.most.difficult.first.step.for.any.person.as.they.leave.the.darkness.of.a.cult.and.are.blinded.by.
the.sunlight.of.new.life.in.Christ.is.finding.comfort.in.Grace...After.studying.the.scriptures.without.
the.filter.of.man,.it.doesnt.take.long.before.coming.to.the.realization.that.this.word,.Grace,.
has.an.entirely.different.meaning.in.the.Bible.than.they.were.accustomed.to.in.the.past..
.
To.any.new.convert.to.Christ,.this.word,.Grace,.is.comforting...It.is.freedom...It.is.love...It.is.
peace,.joy,.and.hope...It.is.every.good.gift.that.Christ.gave.us.by.his.suffering.and.bleeding.on.the.
cross,.as.he.hung.there.crying,.Father.forgive!.
.
But.by.nature,.cult.theology.will.rob.you.of.Gods.greatest.gift...That.same.Grace.that.sets.a.sinner.
free. brings. chains. of. bondage. to. the. cult. member.. . That. same. freedom. in. Christ. that. a. new.
Christian.experiences.as.they.read.their.Bibles.for.the.first.time.is.a.job.and.a.chore.for.those.who.
have.been.programmed.to.believe.a.different.kind.of.grace..
.
Ephesians.2:8\9.is.my.favorite.passage.of.scripture,.having.been.through.this.experience...This.
should.be.the.foundation.to.everyones.faith,.yet.it.has.been.covered.with.the.graffiti.of.mans.
theology:.
.
For.by.grace.you.have.been.saved.through.faith..And.this.is.not.your.own.doing;.it.is.the.gift.of.
God,.not.a.result.of.works,.so.that.no.one.may.boast...Ephesians.2:8\9.
.
This.word,.grace,.is.translated.from.the.Greek.word.chariti,.the.word.very.similar.to.our.own.
English.word.charity...It.is.a.Gift,.because.you.are.loved,.and.not.given.to.you.by.anything.that.
you.can.possibly.do.by.yourself..
.
This.gift.wont.be.given.to.you.because.you.followed.the.rules;.it.has.already.been.given.to.you...
It.wont.be.given.to.you.because.you.stayed.within.the.invisible.boundaries.created.by.man\made.
religion;.it.has.already.been.given.to.you..
.
Strongs.Concordance.describes.this.word.as.blessings,.which.afford.joy.and.pleasure...It.uses.
examples,.such.as.the.love.of.a.good.master.towards.his.servants,.and.of.one.finding.favor.in.the.
eyes.of.the.Giver...
.
In.other.words,.we.have.found.favor.in.Gods.eyes,.but.not.from.ANYTHING.that.we.do,.simply.
because.He.loves.us.as.a.father.loves.his.child..
.
One.author.explains.this.word.Grace.using.the.phrase.Unmerited.Favor,.the.summary.of.the.
entire.definition.of.the.translated.word...Our.favor.in.Gods.eyes.is.unmerited..we.did.not.do.
anything.to.deserve.it,.we.can.never.repay.it,.and.it.is.only.because.He.loved.us.enough.to.send.
His.own.Son,.Jesus.Christ,.to.die.for.our.sins.that.we.have.this.Grace..

To.the.new.Christian,.this.is.wonderful!..This.is.the.wonderful.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ!..Christ.came.
to.save.THEM,.and.they.did.not.do.ANYTHING.to.deserve.it!..Why.anyone.would.not.want.to.
accept.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ.is.beyond.me,.it.is.a.free.Gift!..All.you.have.to.do.is.have.faith.in.
Jesus.Christ!.
.
But.as.converts.to.Christ.from.the.chains.of.a.cult,.this.isnt.so.easy...We.had.to.earn.this.Grace...
We.had.to.follow.man\made.rules.in.order.to.even.deserve.it...And.if.we.broke.those.rules,.we.
were.taken.out.from.under.it...For.some,.even.to.question.the.rules.or.theology.was.to.be.taken.
from.Grace..
.
We.want.to.serve.Christ...And.we.want.to.walk.in.His.perfect.will...We.do.not.want.to.do.anything.
that.He.does.not.want.us.to.do...
.
For.this.reason,.the.first.mistake.every.cult.member.will.make.as.they.struggle.to.find.their.new.
life.in.Christ.is.to.try.and.determine.which.rules.they.SHOULD.follow.in.order.to.deserve.Gods.
Grace...
.
Finding.a.church.becomes.difficult...I.can.remember.reading.through.the.belief.system.of.many.
different. churches. once. I. realized. that. I. had. been. born. and. raised. in. a. cult.. . None. of. them.
sounded.like.Christian.churches.to.me..they.did.not.have.the.same.rules.I.grew.up.with...I.began.
accusing.some.groups.of.not.having.read.their.Bibles,.because.they.didnt.know.the.rules.for.
earning.Gods.grace!.
.
That. same. pride. that. causes. scorn. towards. other. Christians. will. cling. fiercely.. . Without. even.
realizing.it,.you.return.to.the.same.sin.that.made.you.decide.to.leave.the.cult.in.the.first.place..
.
Remember.the.last.half.of.that.passage.of.scripture.from.Ephesians?..not.a.result.of.works,.so.
that.no.one.may.boast..
.
Boasting.is.one.of.the.many.sins.described.in.the.New.Testament...And.this.word.boasting.does.
not.simply.mean.bragging.through.words.spoken,.we.can.also.have.boastful.hearts...Boasting.is.
the. reflection. of. pride,. which. is. also. a. sin. described. in. the. New. Testament.. . Those. same.
Christians. that. love. the. Lord. Jesus. Christ. with. all. their. hearts. in. those. other. churches. are. no.
different.than.us...They.are.no.less.deserving.of.Gods.Grace...They.have.done.nothing.less.than.
we.have.to.deserve.Gods.Unmerited.Favor..because.we.also.did.absolutely.nothing.to.deserve.
it!.
.
Jesus.gives.a.parable.in.Matthew.20.about.laborers.in.a.vineyard...The.first.workers.agree.to.a.
day.of.labor.for.a.denarius,.or.a.days.wage...They.began.working,.but.the.master.of.the.house.
found.more.workers.later.in.the.day...
.
Though.the.first.workers.were.still.laboring,.new.workers.started.long.after,.and.received.the.
same.wages...This.was.repeated.the.third,.sixth,.ninth,.and.eleventh.hour.of.the.day,.each.worker.
receiving.the.same.days.wage.for.their.labor..

.
Those.that.were.first.worked.the.hardest...They.worked.all.day.in.the.hot.sun,.working.for.the.
days.wage.that.they.agreed.upon...But.they.were.upset,.because.those.that.only.worked.half.
a.day.received.the.same.days.wage..
.
Jesus.says.that.this.parable.describes.the.Kingdom.of.Heaven...Our.labor.does.not.earn.us.any.
more.favor.in.Gods.sight...He.chooses.us.for.the.work.that.He.would.have.us.do..not.the.work.
that.man.would.have.us.do...He.chooses.us.at.the.time.and.place.that.He.wants.us.to.serve..not.
at.the.time.and.place.that.man.would.expect.us.to.come..
.
And.the.best.part?..We.ALL.receive.the.same.reward!.
.
This. should. make. us. rejoice. and. sing. constant. praise. to. God!. . The. Children. of. Israel. suffered.
through.Law...They.labored.from.the.day.Moses.broke.those.stone.tablets.to.the.day.Christ.was.
rejected...They.earned.their.salvation.through.the.constant.work.of.the.Law..
.
But.we.have.come.into.the.Kingdom.at.the.eleventh.hour!..We.did.not.labor.like.the.Jews,.and.
we.receive.our.reward.simply.because.the.Master.chose.us!..His.love.for.us.is.Unmerited.Favor,.
something.we.dont.deserve,.given.to.us.with.the.Reward.of.New.Life.in.Christ!.
.
Anyone.who.listens.to.or.reads.this.is.probably.thinking.to.themselves.right.now,.WHAT?..Why.
would.ANYONE.not.want.to.accept.this.Grace.that.is.so.freely.given?..Its.so.EASY.to.be.a.child.of.
the.King!..Why.not.just.accept.it?.
.
Its.not.that.simple..
.
Cult.worship.does.not.always.serve.the.same.God.that.is.described.in.the.Bible...Sure,.they.serve.
a.god.that.is.called.Jesus.Christ,.and.they.serve.a.god.whose.fathers.name.is.Yahweh,.but.they.
are.not.the.same...In.fact,.these.gods.are.far.from.the.same..
.
Remember.the.history.behind.the.covenants.that.brought.the.Mosaic.Law...Remember.how.God.
made.a.covenant.of.ten.simple.Commandments.that.were.all.bound.in.two.simple.rules:..Love.
God.with.all.your.heart,.mind,.and.soul,.and.love.your.neighbor.as.you.love.yourself..
.
Remember.how.the.children.of.Israel.broke.the.first.and.second.rule.immediately.after.making.
the.first.covenant.between.God.and.man.through.Moses...Gods.wrath.was.kindled...He.was.a.
loving.Father,.but.he.was.also.an.angry.Father..
.
This. time. of. punishment. was. a. time. of. correction.. . The. Mosaic. Law. was. given. to. show. the.
Children.of.Israel.that.they.could.never.save.themselves...The.entire.rest.of.the.Old.Testament.
shows.how.a.righteous.man.would.rise.and.uphold.the.Law,.and.then.that.same.righteous.man.
or.those.with.him.would.quickly.fall.and.break.the.Law...Each.time.they.broke.the.Law,.Gods.
anger.was.kindled...

This.is.the.god.that.is.served.by.the.cult...Not.God.in.His.fullness,.but.one.single.personality.of.
God...They.serve.the.God.of.Law,.not.the.God.of.Grace...They.serve.the.God.of.wrath,.not.the.
God.of.Unmerited.Favor...They.serve.the.God.of.the.Old.Testament.during.punishment,.not.the.
God.of.the.New.Testament.after.penalty.for.that.punishment.was.paid..
.
Many. cults. subscribe. to. the. Oneness. or. Modalistic. theology,. the. idea. that. the. god. of.
punishment.from.the.Old.Testament.is.the.same.Jesus.that.died.on.the.cross.in.payment.for.
those.sins...It.is.common.among.many.cult,.from.the.Jehovahs.Witnesses.to.the.Mormons.and.
more..
.
This.theology.is.designed.to.lift.the.cult.leader.into.power...Sermons.or.writings.will.be.presented.
that.lead.the.people.into.believing.that.this.same.god.of.punishment.is.alive.and.well.in.the.
ministry.of.the.leader...Some.will.even.start.believing.that.this.leader.is.god.himself...Others.
will.label.the.ministry.or.the.denomination.as.god.and.compare.the.two.spiritually.rather.than.
physically...They.will.believe.that.the.same.god.of.wrath.in.the.Old.Testament.became.Jesus.of.
the.New...Then,.that.same.god.of.wrath.in.the.New.Testament.was.made.manifest.in.todays.
age.through.the.ministry.of.the.cult.leader..
.
But.as.in.times.of.punishment.in.the.Old.Testament,.they.will.tell.you.that.if.your.works.do.not.
meet.the.standards.of.their.theology,.you.will.grieve.the.Holy.Spirit.into.leaving...That.same.
god.of.wrath.that.seemingly.turned.His.back.on.the.Children.of.Israel.would.turn.his.back.on.
YOU!.
.
This.is.the.reason.that.the.Trinitarian.belief.is.denied.in.so.many.cults...The.Trinity.is.not.some.
new.idea.that.creates.more.Gods..it.is.the.SAME.God.of.the.Bible...It.just.isnt.the.god.of.wrath.
that.they.have.been.serving..
.
The.Children.of.Israel.were.called.Children.for.a.reason...They.had.a.Father...This.Father.was.
Yahweh...He.was.a.loving.father.as.He.displayed.with.Adam...He.was.a.graceful.father.as.He.
showed.to.Abraham.and.David...He.was.an.intelligent.Father.as.we.find.with.Solomon...He.was.
and.IS.the.Heavenly.Father.who.loves.His.children..
.
That.Love.brought.punishment.for.disobeying...God.does.not.want.us.to.serve.other.gods,.and.
when.the.Children.of.Israel.did,.they.were.punished...But.they.werent.punished.because.God.did.
not. love. them. . they. were. punished. so. that. we. would. one. day. realize. that. Gods. Grace. is.
sufficient...There.is.no.reason.to.serve.other.gods;.we.serve.the.greatest.God.of.all!..We.serve.
the.God.who.loves.us!.
.
That.Son.who.died.on.the.cross.for.us.was.not.the.same.Father.who.punished.the.Children.of.
Israel...That.Son.stood.before.men.as.the.Father.called.him.His.own.beloved.Son..That.Son.begged.
the.Father.to.let.the.cup.pass.from.him.as.the.hour.of.the.Gift.was.coming...That.Son.cried.out.
unto.the.Father.to.forgive.the.Jews,.because.they.did.not.know.that.they.were.crucifying.the.Gift...

That.Son.promised.to.send.His.Holy.Spirit.to.us...That.Holy.Spirit.would.lead.us,.and.guide.us,.and.
would.never.leave.us...He.promised.that.He.would.never.leave.us.nor.forsake.us..
.
That.Son.is.God...That.Father.is.God...That.Holy.Spirit.is.God...These.Three,.the.Three.that.we.read.
about.in.our.Bibles,.are.One...They.are.inseparable,.yet.we.find.example.after.example.in.scripture.
describing.one.as.a.Father,.who.loves.us.as.His.children...We.find.One.as.a.Son,.who.intercedes.
on.our.behalf.to.the.Father...And.One.who.lives.within.us,.a.Holy.Spirit.that.gives.us.strength...A.
Holy.Spirit.that.will.never.leave.us.or.forsake.us..
.
Finding.comfort.in.Grace.means.finding.the.truth.in.that.very.statement...He.will.NEVER.leave.us...
He.will.NEVER.forsake.us...
.
Finding.comfort.in.Grace.is.learning.to.take.those.first.steps,.while.the.Father.is.holding.our.hand...
The.Loving.Father.is.reaching.down.his.hand.to.his.child,.letting.us.hold.onto.His.finger.as.our.legs.
wobble...As.we.learn.to.walk,.He.is.standing.there.with.us...
.
Christ.is.standing.there,.covering.us.with.Grace...The.Unmerited.Favor.that.he.purchased.on.the.
cross.is.flowing.through.us.as.he.intercedes.on.behalf.of.the.Father...
.
The.Holy.Spirit.is.within.us...It.is.calling.out,.begging.us.to.take.more.steps...It.is.leading.us.to.the.
Truth!..It.is.drawing.us.closer.to.God...
.
You.wont.find.comfort.in.Grace.until.you.suddenly.realize.that.these.Three.are.One...After.being.
mislead.by.a.cult.leader.whose.motives.were.his.own,.that.trust.is.hard.to.establish...You.dont.
want.to.trust.in.the.blood.that.was.spilled.on.the.cross...You.wont.trust.that.the.cross.is.sufficient.
.and.you.will.want.to.take.your.salvation.into.your.own.hands..
.
Until.you.find.comfort.in.Grace,.you.wont.trust.the.Holy.Spirit.that.is.calling.out.from.inside.of.
you...Youve.already.been.led,.and.you.realized.that.it.was.not.down.a.pathway.that.was.pleasing.
to.God..
.
But.when.you.realize.that.Jesus.IS.God,.and.until.you.realize.that.the.Holy.Spirit.IS.God,.and.that.
same.Father.that.showed.his.wrath.to.the.children.of.Israel.also.had.the.ability.to.show.love,.
mercy,.and.Unmerited.Favor,.you.will.become.more.confident...Your.next.step.becomes.easier,.
because.that.is.GOD.speaking.inside.of.you!..The.faith.in.your.own.salvation.becomes.greater,.

next.step.seem?s.more.solid,.because.that.is.GOD.reaching.down.to.hold.your.hand!.

requires. words. spoken. during. baptism.. . It. isnt. some. mythical. angel. sent. down. to. spread. his.
wings.of.healing...It.isnt.some.code.of.conduct.that.you.live.by.to.achieve.spiritual.enlightenment..

.
During.my.thirty\seven.years.within.a.cult,.I.can.remember.people.leaving...They.left.never.to.
return,.and.soon.to.be.forgotten...While.under.the.cult.programming,.we.focused.on.the.things.
in. their. new. lives. that. we. considered. to. be. evil,. telling. ourselves. that. their. sudden. change.
exposed.who.they.really.are..
.
Now,.having.spent.several.months.on.the.other.side.of.this.fence.and.watching.the.hundreds.
who.are.beginning.to.flee,.I.realize.just.how.backwards.that.statement.really.was...Our.thinking.
was.more.directed.at.pacifying.our.inner.questions.and.concerns.rather.than.targeting.the.person.
for.which.it.was.intended..
.
There.is.such.a.wide.range.of.change,.and.even.wider.a.range.of.duration.before.this.change.
takes.place...Some.have.left.the.cult.for.many.years,.and.really.have.not.changed.that.much...For.
others,.it.is.a.slow.and.gradual.process,.taking.one.step.at.a.time.as.they.learn.for.themselves.
between.right.and.wrong..
.
Some.escapees,.however,.hit.the.ground.running...Their.change.is.immediate,.and.they.seem.to.
make. themselves. as. noticeably. different. as. possible. in. just. as. little. time.. . Their. difference. in.
appearance.or.personality.is.so.sudden,.in.fact,.that.cult.members.would.consider.them.rebels,.
and.even.more.to.the.point,.rebels.without.a.cause..
.
But.if.we.examine.the.situation.a.little.closer,.we.find.that.even.for.the.runners,.this.statement.
doesnt.quite.fit..
.
When.a.person.who.has.been.indoctrinated.with.cult.programming.for.several.years.suddenly.
drops.all.rules.and.takes.the.opposite.stand,.it.is.a.shock...Not.just.to.the.cult.members,.but.also.
to.those.who.are.also.fleeing..but.fleeing.a.little.more.carefully...Even.to.those.on.the.outside,.
these.people.are.rebels.without.a.cause...
.
For.a.long.time,.I.looked.at.these.people.with.a.very.wrong,.critical.point.of.view...I.actually.looked.
down.on.them.as.I.tried.to.untangle.all.of.the.extra\biblical.teaching.from.my.mind...While.I.was.
working.through.all.of.my.issues,.they.seemed.to.be.happy.and.free,.not.caring.in.the.slightest.
with.regards.to.their.eternal.destination..
.
Looking.back,.I.realize.that.many.of.them.were.struggling.much,.much.worse.than.the.rest.of.us..
.
There. is. emotional. scarring. from. years. of. emotional. and. spiritual. abuse,. and. it. causes. great.
inward.pain...Many.of.them.also.have.silent.histories.of.physical.or.sexual.abuse.that.turn.those.
scars.into.open.wounds.that.may.never.heal...While.other.churches.are.taught.to.expose,.correct,.
and.even.notify.authorities,.cults.by.nature.are.taught.by.example.to.hide.these.things.under.the.
rug...The.system.could.not.survive.if.the.rug.were.not.there..
.

206.

And.while.the.illegal.abuse.seems.likely.to.have.the.most.impact,.thats.simply.not.the.case...Their.
memory.can.associate.specific.events.with.the.abuse,.label.those.as.wrong,.and.move.on...But.
the.emotional.and.spiritual.abuse.is.much.more.difficult.to.label..
.
Spiritual. abuse. occurs. when. a. person. in. religious. authority,. usually. having. a. unique. spiritual.
practice,.misleads.or.mistreats.his.or.her.following.by.misinformation.of.information.or.abusing.
their.position...This.type.of.abuse.is.the.most.difficult.to.heal,.because.it.cannot.be.noticed.during.
one.single.event...There.are.hundreds,.thousands,.of.these.very.slight.tugs.into.the.direction.they.
lead..
.
This.type.of.abuse.is.also.difficult.to.explain...One.might.point.to.a.specific.teaching.or.a.specific.
sermon.to.another.cult.member,.and.the.abuse.is.so.small.that.it.goes.unnoticed...Many.would.
even.deny.calling.it.abuse,.because.the.leader.may.have.simply.made.a.mistake.or.misspoken...
.
To.identify.spiritual.abuse,.you.must.examine.the.entire.series.of.teachings,.from.the.day.the.
leader.decided.that.he.or.she.wanted.to.rise.into.authority,.to.the.start.and.finish.of.their.climb.
into.power,.to.the.teachings.while.under.spiritual.authority.and.sometimes.even.unto.the.last.
words.spoken.before.their.death..
.
It.is.very.similar.to.a.criminal.investigation...Finding.the.body.does.not.label.the.suspect.a.killer...
You.must.first.find.motive,.and.then.find.how.that.motive.was.employed..
.
The. cult. I. escaped. had. many. of. these. road. signs.. . Some. of. them. were. so. strange. that. cult.
pastors. or. cult. members. would. ask,. Why. would. he. purposefully. do. this?. . Why. would. he.
purposefully.do.that?..They.were.subtle.instances.of.spiritual.abuse.that.it.seemed.no.man.in.
their.right.mind.would.knowingly.do..
.
I.heard.the.question,.Why.would.the.leader.lie.about.his.conversion.to.Christ?..He.continued.
preaching.the.gospel!..I.also.heard.the.question,.Why.would.he.lie.about.his.own.birthdate?..
There.was.nothing.to.be.gained.by.doing.so!.
.
When.we.take.one.or.two,.even.ten.or.twenty.instances.of.spiritual.abuse,.and.examine.them.
individually,. they. do. seem. silly.. . Even. an. expert. examining. them. might. toss. them. aside. as.
mistakes. or. forgetfulness.. . But. when. we. combine. these. misleading. statements. with. the.
hundreds.of.other,.similar,.instances.of.spiritual.abuse,.we.find.a.pattern.that.is.designed.to.lead.
the.follower.in.a.direction.that.is.away.from.truth..
.
It. is. because. of. this. that. we. find. rebels. without. a. cause.. . They. actually. have. a. cause,. or. a.
purpose,.but.they.themselves.do.not.fully.understand.what.is.behind.that.purpose..
.
Some.of.them.have.tried.to.explain.their.spiritual.abuse.to.family.or.friends,.but.are.not.able.to.
piece.together.the.motive.for.the.murder...Some.have.even.stumbled.across.the.loaded.gun.with.
a.missing.bullet.in.the.chamber.and.smoke.pouring.out.the.barrel,.but.without.motive.they.might.
as.well.give.up!.

As.they.struggle.to.find.themselves,.they.find.themselves.scorned...Not.just.by.the.cult,.but.also.
by.some.that.have.escaped...Rebellion.against.the.right.purpose.is.praised,.but.rebel.without.a.

want. to. be. observed. as. different. from. those. who. are. under. the. spiritual. abuse. they. have.
uncovered!.
.
In. the. thirty\seven. years. of. my. bondage. in. the. cult,. I. never. heard. the. Gospel. of. Jesus. Christ...
Unlike.several.of.my.peers,.I.studied.the.cult.teaching.to.levels.far.beyond.most,.and.was.very.
eager.to.listen.to.the.cult.leaders.every.word...I.knew.almost.every.doctrine.he.created,.every.
fictional.story.he.told,.every.supernatural.event.he.deployed.in.his.campaign.of.spiritual.abuse,.
and.even.many.of.the.sermons.by.heart...The.gospel.we.were.taught.was.a.different.gospel...
The.differences.were.like.night.and.day..
.
From.the.day.Moses.broke.the.stone.tablets.over.the.idolatrous.and.rebellious.people,.mankind.
has.struggled.to.understand.Gods.purpose.in.giving.us.the.Gospel...These.rules.given.under.the.
Mosaic.Law.had.purpose,.and.Jesus.tells.us.exactly.what.that.purpose.is...God.wants.us.to.have.
perfect.love...Love.for.God.and.love.for.man...All.the.commandments.are.summed.up.into.those.
two.things..
.
Men.do.not.understand...They.focus.their.thoughts.on.the.evil.that.is.created.by.breaking.the.
rules.rather.than.the.good.that.God.intended...Every.single.one.of.the.Ten.Commandments.can.
be.answered.by.love...If.you.love,.you.will.not.kill...If.you.love,.you.will.not.steal...In.all.things:.
love..

When.Christ.came.to.fulfill.the.part.of.the.Covenant.that.man.could.not.keep,.we.entered.into.
the.eternal.covenant.of.Grace...And.if.we.examine.the.spiritual.abuse.that.the.people.suffered.in.
the.days.of.Christ,.we.find.some.very.strong.similarities..

God.was.no.longer.the.authority.of.the.people...The.Scribes.and.the.Pharisees.were.seen.as.great.
spiritual.leaders,.and.their.interpretation.of.the.Law.was.the.ultimate.authority...Common.man.
could.not.argue.with.their.interpretation,.because.they.had.no.spiritual.authority..

and.twist.them.to.their.own.benefit,.raising.the.spiritual.leaders.into.even.higher.authority...
New.Laws.would.be.invented,.and.none.of.these.new.laws.could.be.answered.with.love...They.
were.Laws.simply.because.the.leaders.proclaimed.them.to.be.so..
.
To.the.Scribes.and.Pharisees,.these.followers.of.Christ.were.also.rebels.without.a.cause..
.
There. were. many. rules. under. the. Mosaic. Law. that. dealt. with. outward. appearance,. outward.
expressions,.and.outward.actions...These.rules.did.have.purpose:..God.used.the.Children.of.Israel.
to.show.us.that.mankind.cannot.save.itself.by.their.own.works...It.is.only.by.the.Grace.of.God.
that.we.can.be.saved..
.
Christ,.by.example,.taught.His.disciples.to.be.rebels.without.a.cause,.or.rather,.rebels.against.
tyranny...Mark.7.gives.us.an.example,.Christ.teaching.AGAINST.the.Mosaic.Law.regarding.pork,.
food.sacrificed.to.idols,.and.more:.
.
And.he.called.the.people.to.him.again.and.said.to.them,.Hear.me,.all.of.you,.and.understand:.
There.is.nothing.outside.a.person.that.by.going.into.him.can.defile.him,.but.the.things.that.come.
out.of.a.person.are.what.defile.him..And.when.he.had.entered.the.house.and.left.the.people,.
his. disciples. asked. him. about. the. parable.. And. he. said. to. them,. Then. are. you. also. without.
understanding?.Do.you.not.see.that.whatever.goes.into.a.person.from.outside.cannot.defile.him,.
since.it.enters.not.his.heart.but.his.stomach,.and.is.expelled?.(Thus.he.declared.all.foods.clean.)..
And.he.said,.What.comes.out.of.a.person.is.what.defiles.him...For.from.within,.out.of.the.heart.
of.man,.come.evil.thoughts,.sexual.immorality,.theft,.murder,.adultery,.coveting,.wickedness,.
deceit,.sensuality,.envy,.slander,.pride,.foolishness...All.these.evil.things.come.from.within,.and.
they.defile.a.person...Mark.7.

Churches.today.take.the.scripture.whosoever.shall.offend.one.of.these.little.ones.which.believe.
in.me.from.Matthew.18.out.of.context.to.say.that.we.should.respect.the.religious.beliefs.of.
others.no.matter.how.wrong.they.are...I.know.many.who.have.escaped.the.cult.that.will.strictly.
adhere.to.the.dress.code.simply.because.they.want.to.show.their.respect.to.the.friends.and.family.
within.the.cult..
.
What.they.do.not.realize.is.that.they.are.not.showing.their.respect.to.cult.members...Once.you.
are.on.the.outside,.all.respect.is.lost...Instead,.they.are.showing.their.support.to.the.teaching,.no.
matter.how.false...I.can.remember.other.cult.members.saying,.She.still.knows.its.wrong.to.wear.
those.pants..when.shes.around.us,.she.still.wears.them!.
.
The.laws.of.modesty.had.very.little.to.do.with.sexuality...Breeches.were.actually.a.womans.
garment,.and.the.men.wore.robes.which.were.similar.in.structure.to.the.dresses.of.women.today...
Unlike.today,.clothing.was.associated.with.stature..
.
When.the.Bible.instructs.women.not.to.wear.garments.that.pertain.to.men,.or.to.wear.modest.
clothing,.these.teachings.are.against.pride,.which.Christ.just.called.evil..

.
And.sadly,.the.Pentecostal.movement.has.taught.men.and.women.to.become.prideful.in.their.
choice.of.apparel...Others.who.do.not.follow.their.same.rules.are.either.scorned.or.condemned,.
making.the.clothing.that.seems.modest.with.regards.to.sexuality.to.become.the.very.opposite.
of.modest...Their.clothing.has.now.become.their.idol..
.
Anything.that.you.include.in.your.worship.that.does.not.follow.the.teaching.of.Christ.and.the.
new.covenant.can.very.easily.become.idolatrous...In.of.itself,.there.is.no.harm.in.wearing.clothing.
that.covers.skin...I.know.very.good,.Christian.people.who.wear.this.type.of.modest.clothing...
But.when.your.religion.teaches.you.that.you.must.live.this.way.in.order.to.be.clean.or.pure,.
then.you.have.just.replaced.the.blood.of.Jesus.Christ.for.those.old.rags...You.have.let.your.idol.
nullify.the.Work.that.Christ.did.for.you.on.the.cross..
.
Looking. back,. these. rebels. without. a. cause. seemed. to. be. breaking. rules. that. put. them. in.
pathways.that.angels.feared.to.tread...But.after.reading.the.Bible.without.the.blinders.of.spiritual.
abuse,.Im.not.so.sure.this.is.the.case...Many.of.the.rules.we.thought.were.scriptural.through.the.
twisting.of.the.Bible.seem.less.important.as.those.twisted.scriptures.are.untangled...Very.little.of.
our.rules.were.founded.in.love.for.our.fellow.man...Many.of.them.actually.hurt.our.fellow.man,.
and.most.of.them.filled.our.hearts.with.pride,.which.is.sin...We.placed.more.emphasis.on.these.
rules.than.we.did.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ,.and.these.rules.became.our.idols..
.
While.they.probably.did.not.yet.realize.it,.they.were.lifting.their.hands,.saying,.We.no.longer.

After. breaking. through. the. barriers. of. a. cult. and. into. freedom,. you. will. quickly. find. that. this.
freedom.you.first.experience.is.not.nearly.as.incredible.as.it.sounds...In.fact,.many.who.have.
taken.this.journey.will.tell.you.that.freedom.comes.with.great.price..
.
The. Pentecostal. movement. bred. many. spinoffs,. divided. churches. that. separated. themselves.
from.other.Christians...Like.the.original.movement.from.the.Azusa.Street.Revival,.they.focused.
their.ambitions.on.attaining.the.spiritual.gift.that.they.mistook.for.the.Gift.of.the.Holy.Spirit.
that.was.promised.by.Christ..
.
For.the.original.movement,.speaking.in.tongues.was.the.evidence.that.you.had.received.the.
Holy.Spirit,.and.once.you.had.this.evidence.in.your.lives,.you.were.sealed.to.the.day.of.your.
redemption...(In.other.words,.you.had.everything.you.needed...Your.experience.stops.here.)..
For.others,.healing.was.the.evidence,.and.for.others.some.other.spiritual.gift...
.
Many.have.taken.the.travel.guide.laid.down.by.the.Pentecostals.as.their.ultimate.roadmap:..
Justification,.Sanctification,.Baptism.of.the.Holy.Ghost...These.milestones.along.the.way.were.
nothing.more.than.just.that:.milestones...But.for.the.Christian.whos.following.the.pathway.laid.
down.by.the.Bible,.these.arent.just.stops.along.the.way,.we.are.continually.learning.and.growing.
in.the.ways.of.Christ...Sanctification.is.a.continual.process,.starting.from.the.day.the.doctor.helps.
bring.you.into.the.world.and.ending.on.the.day.the.doctor.takes.his.fingers.to.close.your.eyes.
after.death..

Very.few.from.the.Pentecostal.movement.recognized.the.evidence.of.the.Holy.Spirit.in.their.lives.
that. Paul. tell. us. to. look. for:. love,. joy,. peace,. forbearance,. kindness,. goodness,. faithfulness,.
gentleness.and.self\control...Since.sanctification.was.a.milestone.in.their.history,.they.never.

no.Law..

The.early.church.was.also.on.a.journey,.breaking.through.barriers.that.were.very.similar.to.our.
own...Having.focused.on.tradition.that.was.wrapped.around.the.Law.of.Moses,.each.rule.given.
in.the.Mosaic.Law.had.become.a.part.of.their.inner.makeup...They.were.programmed.to.believe.

onto.their.already.cumbersome.load,.weighing.themselves.down.with.burden..

If.we.continue.on.in.Galatians.into.Galatians.chapter.six,.we.see.why.Paul.reminds.us.against.
such.things.there.is.no.Law:.
.
Those. who. want. to. impress. people. by. means. of. the. flesh. are. trying. to. compel. you. to. be.
circumcised..The.only.reason.they.do.this.is.to.avoid.being.persecuted.for.the.cross.of.Christ...Not.
even.those.who.are.circumcised.keep.the.law,.yet.they.want.you.to.be.circumcised.that.they.may.
boast.about.your.circumcision.in.the.flesh...May.I.never.boast.except.in.the.cross.of.our.Lord.
Jesus. Christ,. through. which. the. world. has. been. crucified. to. me,. and. I. to. the. world.. . Neither.
circumcision.nor.uncircumcision.means.anything;.what.counts.is.the.new.creation...Peace.and.
mercy.to.all.who.follow.this.ruleto.the.Israel.of.God..
.
Notice.the.reason.these.people.tried.to.carry.the.law.of.circumcision.with.them:..The.only.reason.
they.do.this.is.to.avoid.being.persecuted.for.the.cross.of.Christ..
.
The.cross.of.Christ.removed.all.of.these.burdens,.and.paid.the.penalty.for.the.breach.of.the.Old.
Covenant.that.included.the.Law...A.new.Eternal.Covenant.was.established,.one.of.Grace,.and.one.
that.lifted.the.many.weights.that.they.carried.for.generations..
.
.
But.there.were.many.still.inside.those.boundaries...And.to.the.Jew.who.remained.behind.those.
barriers.refusing.Christ,.these.new.Christians.were.using.the.cross.to.break.all.the.rules...They.
despised.the.idea.that.the.man.they.hung.on.the.cross.could.have.removed.them.from.tradition...
They. despised. anyone. who. broke. that. tradition.. . They. persecuted. those. who. were. trying. to.

on.top.of.each.other,.all.of.these.weights.become.an.unbearable.burden..

Some. cults. avoid. television.. . That. is. a. weight.. . When. they. are. fellowshipping. with. another.

common.that.its.difficult.to.even.leave.your.house.without.feeling.that.burden..

Many.of.these.things.are.unnecessary.weights...Many.of.them.produce.scorn.instead.of.love...

men.and.women.escaping.a.cult.bring.their.tradition.into.their.new.lives..sometimes.for.the.
wrong.reasons...Instead.of.bringing.with.them.a.way.of.life.they.enjoy,.many.of.them.bring.their.
traditions.as.weights.that.continue.to.burden.them.down...
.
There.is.nothing.wrong.with.avoiding.sports,.especially.if.your.heart.is.not.in.the.game...If.you.
can.walk.by.a.group.of.others.who.are.enjoying.a.casual.game.of.basketball.or.a.round.of.tennis.
without.feeling.any.emotion.whatsoever,.then.this.aspect.of.your.new.life.is.without.burden...
.
But.if.you.pass.by.that.same.group.of.people.and.long.to.be.in.there.with.them,.refusing.to.do.so.
because.of.your.tradition,.theres.something.wrong...If.you.pass.by.them.and.feel.out.of.place.
because.you.have.never.experienced.what.they.are.doing,.that.weight.gets.heavier...And.if.you.
look.at.them.with.scorn.or.pride,.then.your.weight.has.just.brought.you.to.your.knees..

Sadly,.adjustment.to.freedom.is.not.an.overnight.change...Many.will.tell.you.that.this.out.of.
place.feeling.may.last.for.several.years...The.weights.that.they.carry.are.so.great.in.number.that.
removing.them.one\by\one.will.take.a.lifetime..

Christ.died.on.the.cross,.and.the.penalty.for.sin.was.paid.once.for.all,.we.dont.find.a.group.of.
new.Christians.celebrating.their.lives.without.the.Mosaic.Law.that.they.were.programmed.to.
follow...In.fact,.we.find.many.sections.of.Pauls.letters..which.came.years.later..reminding.them.
that.the.New.Eternal.Covenant.of.Grace.made.the.Old.Law.obsolete..

Me,. but. have. never. really. stopped. to. consider. what. this. song. is. referring. to.. . The. song. is. a.

This.rest.for.your.souls.is.Gods.REST...It.is.not.Gods.PENALTY...Christ.did.not.come.to.replace.
the.Mosaic.Law.with.another.set.of.Laws.that.were.greater.in.power,.in.fact,.he.came.and.lifted.
the.Mosaic.Law...It.was.part.of.the.Old.Covenant.that.had.been.broken.by.the.people,.and.the.

the.Children.of.Israel.could.not.fulfill..keeping.the.Law..to.set.them.free.from.their.part.of.the.
bargain...

because.God.has.richly.blessed.him!.

All.laws.are.fulfilled.in.love...And.love.carries.no.weight...In.fact,.love.lifts.us,.making.our.feet.
lighter...Through.our.unburdened.lives,.we.can.lift.the.burdens.of.others..
.
Thats.why.Paul.said,.Against.such.things.there.is.no.Law..
.
There.are.no.rules,.no.weights...There.are.no.burdens.that.Christ.wants.us.to.bear;.He.told.us.to.
cast.our.cares.upon.Him...His.burden.is.light..and.He.WANTS.to.bear.our.burdens.for.us...He.
wants.us.to.be.happy.and.free,.telling.others.about.Him...He.wants.us.to.tell.others.that.freedom.
in.Christ.means.giving.Him.our.weights!.

Psychological$Warfare$
.
One.of.the.lengthiest.processes.after.leaving.a.cult,.one.that.is.very.critical.in.the.recovery.of.the.
person.escaping.is.deprogramming...Almost.anyone.who.has.escaped.will.tell.you.that.they.had.
no.idea.they.NEEDED.deprogramming.during.their.time.inside.the.cult,.and.even.until.long.after.
escaping..
.
Programming. is. very. subtle,. not. noticeable. by. the. listeners,. and. many. times. not. even.
intentionally.administered.by.the.cult.pastors...What.the.pastors.do.to.the.people,.they.do.by.
example..
.
During. the. Korean. War,. Americans. held. prisoner. in. the. camps. of. the. enemy. went. through.
sessions.of.criticism.and.self.criticism...This.psychological.tactic.was.employed.not.only.against.
the.American.prisoners.of.war,.but.also.against.the.Korean.militia...The.Korean.military.leaders.
recognized.the.power.of.programming..
.
This.tactic.was.relatively.new.to.the.American.military...It.was.also.employed.by.Hitler.in.Nazi.
Germany,.but.was.widely.overlooked.until.long.after.the.history.of.the.war.was.examined...These.
sessions,. combined. with. the. other. military. techniques,. became. known. as. psychological.
warfare..
.
The. US. army. created. a. division. called. PSYWAR. (for. psychological. warfare),. and. specifically.
recruited.men.with.advanced.education.and.intelligence.to.combat.the.enemy..
.
This.technique.of.criticism.and.self.criticism.had.very.deep,.and.very.long\lasting.effects...The.
prisoners.of.war.initially.felt.this.routine.was.childish,.not.realizing.that.they.would.likely.suffer.
from.these.effects.for.the.rest.of.their.lives...What.they.first.thought.was.just.slightly.insulting.
conversation.became.programming.that.was.embedded.into.their.minds.forever..
.
The.Koreans.would.repeatedly.criticize.the.American.prisoners.of.war...Their.mocking.statements.
would.seem.childish.or.playful,.but.were.specifically.designed.to.drive.these.listeners.to.begin.
criticizing. themselves.. . Over. and. over,. the. Koreans. would. nit\pick. every. single. aspect. of. the.
Americans.until.the.Americans.would.start.to.believe.the.insults.and.fill.themselves.with.self\
condemnation..
.
Eventually,. the. growing. humiliation. would. completely. break. down. the. personalities. and.
psychological.makeup.of.the.prisoners,.turning.them.into.different.people.than.when.they.were.
first.captured...And.it.was.a.gradual.process;.none.of.the.prisoners.could.recognize.their.change.
until.some.of.them.managed.to.escape.to.others.who.could.see.and.understand.that.these.were.
not.the.same.people....

They.were.broken...They.were.discouraged...They.were.pessimistic...They.were.filled.with.self\
condemnation.and.self\pity...They.were.filled.with.the.very.same.effects.that.we.find.within.a.
cult..
.
The.similarities.between.this.psychological.warfare.and.the.cult.I.was.born.into.are.absolutely.
striking...For.those.like.myself.who.were.born.into.it,.there.was.no.prior.personality.to.compare.
.we.were.molded.and.programmed.our.entire.lives.into.the.people.we.became...But.for.others,.
those.who.lived.normal.lives.until.they.became.trapped.inside.a.cult,.the.story.is.much.different...
The.change.in.their.lives.was.clearly.visible..
.
A.reporter.for.a.lifestyle.magazine.named.YOU.interviewed.the.family.of.a.young.woman.who.
became.trapped.in.the.cult.my.family.grew.up.with...The.young.woman.was.not.born.into.the.
cult,.but.fell.in.love.with.a.young.man.who.was...As.she.started.attending.the.church,.she.began.
to.change....
.
This.change.was.not.evident.at.first...It.was.very.gradual...Over.time,.her.personality.changed.to.
the.point.that.even.her.own.family.and.friends.became.outcast...Like.the.prisoners.of.war.in.
Korea,.she.became.broken,.self\condemning,.and.in.all.ways:.different..
.
The.mother.is.quoted.as.being.shocked.that.this.much.of.a.change.could.happen.in.her.daughter...
My.children.were.real.achievers.and.were.involved.in.church.work...Nobody.thought.something.
like.this.could.happen.to.us..
.
The.loving.mother.knew.something.was.wrong,.knew.that.her.daughter.was.no.longer.the.same.
ambitious.and.motivated.daughter.that.she.once.knew,.and.put.a.plan.into.motion...They.snuck.
into. her. Canadian. home. in. the. early. hours. past. midnight,. whisked. her. into. Africa. to. a.
deprogramming.facility,.and.spent.the.next.several.weeks.deprogramming.her.daughter.from.the.
mind.control.and.psychological.warfare.of.the.cult....
.
She.was.emotionless,.her.mother.said...I.didnt.know.her...It.was.heartbreaking..
.
After.finally.ripping.a.great.deal.of.the.programming.from.her.mind,.even.the.young.woman.was.
shocked...Especially.shocked.that.she.could.be.so.subtly.turned.from.her.own.parents..
.
The.cult.began.breaking.her.down,.filling.her.with.self.condemnation.for.the.life.she.lived.and.
the.way.her.mother.had.raised.her...They.persuaded.me.my.parents.were.trying.to.keep.me.
from.having.a.better.life,.she.said..
.
But.finally,.after.weeks.of.help.from.a.doctor,.the.young.woman.could.love.her.family.once.more...
She.was.thankful.that.her.mother.loved.her.enough.to.risk.real.danger.to.take.her.to.find.help...
At.times.like.this,.you.realize.the.value.of.a.family,.she.said..
.
This.was.not.some.cult.like.you.see.in.the.movies,.with.dark.dungeons.and.men.in.long,.brown.
robes...This.is.not.some.dark.building.where.the.people.sit.around.a.large.five\pointed.star.in.the.

floor,.holding.candles.up.to.the.man.in.the.center...The.young.woman.describes.the.cult.church.
as.being.like.any.other..a.very.inviting.place.from.the.outside...It.seemed.like.an.ordinary.church.
to. me,. she. said.. . The. women. wore. long. dresses,. but. apart. from. that. there. was. nothing.
unusual..
.
The.people.inside.of.a.cult.are.good,.loving.people...They.will.show.you.kindness.while.they.see.
you.as.a.prospect...They.will.show.even.more.kindness.if.you.come.inside.their.walls...Some.will.
tell.you.that.once.you.become.one.of.them,.you.become.more.loved.than.family...But.just.
watch.what.happens.when.you.leave.that.family!.
.
And.the.one.of.them,.is.part.of.the.programming....
.
There.are.several.aspects.to.psychological.warfare.that.are.very.common.routine.in.a.cult...Some.
of.these.techniques.are.employed.regularly.without.even.realizing.that.these.techniques.have.a.
long\lasting.effect....
.
The.state.of.hypnosis.is.required...Not.the.waving.of.a.pocket.watch.while.a.creepy.looking.man.
stares.into.your.eyes.and.tells.you.to.listen.to.the.snap.of.his.finger,.but.rather.the.mental.state.
of.hypnosis.where.your.mind.becomes.placed.into.a.very.high.state.of.suggestibility,.relaxation,.
or.meditation....
.
The.church.is.the.perfect.place.for.this...Especially.the.cult.churches.that.force.silence.prior.to.
the.service..the.people.are.forced.to.enter.meditation.in.reverence.to.the.Lord..
.
The.music.can.be.a.factor...Music.with.rhythm.having.beats.close.to.the.human.heartbeat.will.
cause.even.more.suggestibility...The.closer.the.patient.becomes.to.sleep,.the.more.powerful.the.
suggestion...While.you.find.upbeat,.exciting.songs.praising.Christ.for.His.work.on.the.cross.in.
other.churches,.you.will.find.many.cult.churches.with.slow,.dragging.music...I.can.remember.one.
man.telling.me.after.the.service.in.the.cult.church.I.attended,.That.sounded.like.funeral.music!.
.
Once. the. people. are. programmed. to. receive,. you. will. find. many. cult. pastors. with. the.
Charismatic\style.preaching,.screaming.at.the.top.of.their.lungs.as.though.they.are.preaching.to.
an.entire.arena.filled.with.three.hundred.thousand.people.without.having.a.microphone...Many.
of.these.pastors.scream.like.this.in.a.church.of.fifty.people....
.
Those.who.have.never.heard.this.style.of.preaching.will.laugh.and.make.statements.like.That.
man.sounded.like.Hitler!...
.
And.they.are.not.far.from.the.truth..
.
There. is. a. pattern. in. psychological. warfare.. . The. men. who. were. masterminds. of. controlling.
people. through. power. of. psychology. have. one. thing. in. common:. they. are. remembered. as.
screamers....

When.the.person.is.most.receptive.to.programming,.the.loud.voice.at.the.platform.is.seen.as.a.
figure.of.authority.far.greater.than.before...The.words.start.to.come.in.a.rhythmic.beat,.matching.
close.to.the.heartbeat....
.
Then,.as.the.pastor.gets.deep.into.the.sermon.and.the.congregation.becomes.adjusted.to.this.
rhythm,.the.pastor.starts.filling.them.with.the.same.type.of.self\condemnation.strategy.that.the.
Koreans.employed.through.psychological.warfare....
.
This.strategy.has.worked...It.changed.the.personalities.of.the.Nazi.soldiers.under.Hitler.so.much.
that. they. did. unspeakable. crimes. against. humanity.. . It. has. raised. military. leaders. into. great.
power.in.several.communistic,.developing.nations..
.
And.it.makes.the.people.lift.the.pastor.into.power..
.
When. a. cult. pastor. is. lifted. into. power,. very. few. question. his. motives. and. objectives.. . He.
becomes. the. leader,. not. the. shepherd.. . Rather. than. leading. the. sheep. and. pointing. them. to.
Christ. and. the. Bible,. he. leads. the. people. respect. his. own. understanding. of. scripture. without.
confirming.his.doctrines.for.themselves...They.are.truly.programmed.to.receive..
.
The.number.one.question.I.get.asked.from.those.escaping.the.cult.I.was.born.into.is.this:..If.[our.
cult.leader].was.not.the.Messenger.For.The.Hour,.then.WHO.is?.
.
They.have.been.programmed.to.lift.a.man.into.power...They.have.been.programmed.to.bring.a.
man. into. the. ultimate. authority,. which. essentially. is. the. same. as. worship.. . They. have. been.
programmed.to.worship.a.man..
.
And.this.is.not.scriptural...If.you.twist.scripture.from.the.Old.Testament,.under.the.Old.Covenant,.
you.might.be.able.to.stretch.scripture.enough.to.place.the.high.priest.into.authority...The.cult.I.
came.from.stretched.it.even.further.to.lift.the.prophets.into.the.ultimate.authority,.not.realizing.
that.the.high.priests.were.the.ones.at.the.highest.ranking.position.under.the.Jewish.tradition...
Prophets.were.nothing.more.than.humble.men,.putting.themselves.out.of.the.way.so.that.God.
could.speak.through.them..
.
.
But.that.is.Old.Testament...That.is.Old.Covenant...We.live.under.the.New.Covenant.of.Grace,.not.
the.Old.Covenant.of.Law...We.no.longer.make.yearly.journeys.to.offer.our.sacrifice.to.the.earthly.
high.priest...We.are.no.longer.to.be.reminded.of.our.sins.as.these.pastors.try.to.do.with.their.
condemnation.and.self.condemnation.psychological.warfare....
.
There.was.ONE.final.Sacrifice,.and.It.was.nailed.to.the.cross.once.for.all....
.
Hebrews.chapter.10.says.that.the.yearly.sacrifice.was.a.shadow.of.things.to.come,.meaning.that.
they.were.given.to.the.Children.of.Israel.as.a.type.of.the.final.Sacrifice.that.would.be.offered.
by.Christ....

It.says.that.the.old.way.was.inefficient;.we.were.constantly.reminded.of.our.sin,.because.the.
blood.of.bulls.and.goats.can.never.take.away.our.sin..
.
The.book.of.Hebrews.teaches.us.HOW.we.should.preach..something.that.very.few.pastors.in.a.
cult. follow.. . They. themselves. are. programmed. to. receive,. and. are. following. their. instincts.
based.on.their.own.programmed.mind..
.
There.is.no.self.condemnation...There.is.no.provision.for.pointing.fingers.at.the.congregation.on.
a.weekly.basis,.reminding.them.of.their.sin...There.is.no.belittling.the.people,.breaking.them.
down.into.submission.so.that.the.pastor.can.become.the.hero.during.a.massive.altar.call....
.
He.is.not.supposed.to.be.the.hero.of.the.story..
.
Hebrews.chapter.7.tells.us.that.we.have.a.new.High.Priest,.and.that.High.Priest.is.Jesus.Christ...
He.is.a.High.Priest.forever..not.until.some.cult.leader.comes.along.and.deploys.strategies.of.
mind.control.and.self\condemnation...Christ.is.the.one.we.are.supposed.to.follow,.and.we.are.
supposed.to.follow.Him.by.leading.of.the.Holy.Spirit.that.is.within.us!.

I.wish.there.was.an.easy.answer.to.those.struggling.to.deprogram...I.wish.there.were.some.way.
that.I.could.say,.Its.easy!..Just.do.[this]!..I.wish.I.could.point.them.to.a.doctor.that.will.make.
the.transition.easy,.or.to.a.self\help.program.that.will.make.the.deprogramming.be.much.less.
painful..
.
But.I.cant...Those.who.have.gone.through.deprogramming.will.tell.you.that.this.was.the.most.
painful.part.of.their.experience.as.they.escaped.a.cult...It.is.a.roller.coaster.of.emotion,.from.
deep,.painful.sorrow.to.anger.and.hatred.of.the.system.that.changed.their.personalities.to.such.
a.bitter,.self\condemning.person...It.brings.great.compassion.to.those.that.have.been.hurt.by.the.
programmed.pride.of.being.the.chosen.few.in.the.us.against.them.programmed.mentality...
That.compassion.is.so.extreme.that.it.becomes.painful..
.
But.there.IS.a.book.I.can.point.you.to.that.will.have.all.the.answers...It.is.a.book.that.theyve.held.
in.their.hands.all.this.time,.and.it.was.patiently.waiting.for.them.to.open.it.and.unlock.its.power...
It.is.a.book.that.will.teach.them.to.respect.themselves...It.will.teach.them.to.respect.others...It.
will.teach.them.to.show.love,.compassion,.and.mercy.on.their.fellow.man..even.to.those.that.
do.not.believe.the.same.way.that.they.do...Its.a.book.that.does.have.all.the.answers..if.you.just.

We. have. had. several. contact. us. from. other. countries. around. the. world,. concerned. for. their.

prophecy. this. might. be. quickly. possible,. but. with. each. new. day. we. find. a. new. aspect. of. the.
ministry.of.William.Branham.that.turns.out.to.be.complete.fiction..

Believe.The.Sign.has.taken.the.first.and.biggest.milestone.in.William.Branham's.fictional.ministry:.
The.Ohio.River.Baptism...Rather.than.go.into.great.detail.of.how.similar.Branham's.story.is.to.that.
of.William.Sowders,.or.go.into.detail.of.how.William.Branham.was.claiming.a.completely.different.
commission.story.in.a.pamphlet.he.promoted.in.1945,.Believe.The.Sign.has.focused.on.one.single.
clipping.of.a.newspaper.article..
.
William. Branham. claimed. that. there. were. over. 500. people. baptized. during. this. "Great.
Commission,". and. that. the. newspapers. "packed. an. article". describing. how. the. voice. of. God.
boomed.through.the.heavens.as.a.light.shone.down.on.the.head.of.William.Branham.\\.much.like.
the.light.shone.on.Jesus.Christ..
.
It. has. baffled. many. for. years,. even. those. trapped. inside. the. cult,. as. to. how. the. world. could.
possibly.reject.William.Branham's.ministry.when.God.Himself.shone.a.light.on.this.mans.head.
and.spoke.from.the.heavens.telling.the.people.to.hear.his.voice...The.only.other.time.in.recorded.
history.was.in.the.Bible,.when.the.Father.shone.a.light.down.on.the.head.of.Jesus.Christ.and.told.
the.people.to.hear.the.voice.of.Jesus.Christ..
.
It.has.also.puzzled.people.who.study.the.scriptures,.even.in.the.cult,.because.the.voice.did.not.
tell.the.people.to.hear.the.voice.of.John...The.voice.spoke.of.the.one.coming.that.we.are.not.
worthy.to.loosen.the.shoes.of.His.precious.feet..
.
The.clipping.of.the.newspaper.article.unravels.the.fiction.through.this.entire.tall.tale...There.were.
not.500.people...There.were.not.even.fifty...There.were.not.even.enough.people.to.amount.to.

The$Love$Story$$$
.
By.nature,.religious.cults.are.a.tightly.knit.group.of.people.with.an.unhealthy.level.of.intimacy...
They.are.a.very.close,.affectionate.and.caring.group.of.people.who.over.time.have.become.almost.
exact.clones.of.personality...They.look.alike...They.think.alike...They.start.liking.the.same.things..
.
The.cult.I.escaped.had.an.unhealthy.affection.for.wilderness,.simply.because.the.fables.told.by.
the.cult.leader.included.stories.from.the.wilderness...People.who.would.never.have.chosen.to.be.
the. outdoors. type. were. climbing. mountains,. hiking. trails,. and. hunting. game.. . Some. churches.
within.the.cult.even.frowned.upon.many.other.activities,.especially.if.it.could.be.associated.with.
modern.entertainment.you.would.typically.find.indoors..
.
When.you.are.on.the.inside,.you.become.more.than.family...You.become.part.of.the.mold,.and.
over.time,.this.mold.actively.changes.the.makeup.of.your.personality...
.
Again.to.the.example.I.came.from,.the.cult.leader.died.in.1965...Had.he.been.alive.for.the.next.
fifty.years,.this.man.would.have.changed.with.the.times...We.find.recorded.example.of.his.change.
during.the.years.that.led.to.his.death,.but.this.change.was.stopped.abruptly.by.an.automobile.
accident..
.
As.Hollywood.started.making.an.impact.on.society.during.the.early.years.of.the.leaders.ministry,.
and.many.churches.were.condemning.this.change,.the.leader.strongly.opposed.watching.these.
movies...When.television.started.spreading.like.wildfire,.this.grew.worse...Sermons.would.include.
quotes.like.Satans.pulled.one.over.on.you!..Now.youve.got.it.in.your.homes!.
.
But.as.these.changes.started.becoming.largely.accepted,.the.leader.himself.started.frequenting.
movies...Those.in.the.cult.who.never.knew.this.hold.on.to.the.earlier.belief..that.movies.are.of.
the.devil...But.those.who.saw.the.leader.in.theaters.or.who.have.enjoyed.a.movie.or.ballgame.
on.the.television.with.the.leaders.own.sons.will.no.longer.deny.themselves.the.entertainment.
they.once.forbid..
.
This.presents.a.problem...Now,.the.cult.itself.is.split.into.two.groups:..those.who.now.realize.that.
they.themselves.are.in.charge.of.their.televisions,.having.the.power.to.decide.whether.to.watch.
good.or.watch.evil,.and.those.who.practice.asceticism..
.
Asceticism.is.denying.worldly.pleasures.to.achieve.a.higher.spiritual.state...It.is.the.belief.that.
you.are.the.one.in.control,.not.God...If.you.want.to.be.more.like.God,.and.be.presented.holy,.
then.you.must.abstain.from.the.pleasures.of.this.world..
.
This. is. a. dangerous. heresy,. one. that. has. been. condemned. since. Gnostic. influence. started. to.
infect. the. early. church.. . Irenaeus. wrote. an. entire. book,. Against. Heresies,. condemning. this.

The.Apostle.Paul.also.spoke.out.against.asceticism:.
.
Let.no.one.disqualify.you,.insisting.on.asceticism.and.worship.of.angels,.going.on.in.detail.about.
visions,.puffed.up.without.reason.by.his.sensuous.mind.
.
Colossians.2:18..
.
Before.you.can.accept.asceticism,.you.must.first.deny.the.cross.of.Jesus.Christ...You.must.deny.
the.power.of.the.cross,.deny.that.His.Grace.is.sufficient...You.must.believe.that.there.is.something.
that.YOU.also.must.do.before.you.can.be.saved..
.
In. Mark. 7,. Jesus. Himself. condemns. the. Pharisees. for. letting. the. tradition. of. their. rules. and.
boundaries.take.priority.over.the.Word.of.God...They.had.forgotten.the.very.reason.the.Law.
was.given,.and.had.denied.themselves.the.love.of.their.fellow.man.for.their.own.tradition..
.
He.said.to.them,.All.too.well.you.reject.the.commandment.of.God,.that.you.may.keep.your.
tradition...For.Moses.said,.Honor.your.father.and.your.mother;.and,.He.who.curses.father.or.
mother,.let.him.be.put.to.death...But.you.say,.If.a.man.says.to.his.father.or.mother,.Whatever.
profit.you.might.have.received.from.me.is.Corban.(that.is,.a.gift.to.God),.then.you.no.longer.
let.him.do.anything.for.his.father.or.his.mother,..making.the.word.of.God.of.no.effect.through.
your.tradition.which.you.have.handed.down..And.many.such.things.you.do..
.
Mankind,.by.nature,.has.always.struggled.with.tradition...Unless.they.remember.the.underlying.
reason.a.doctrine.or.a.law.is.given,.they.will.start.to.focus.on.that.law...Over.time,.the.reason.is.
completely.forgotten..
.
Jesus.knew.this.as.he.was.having.the.Last.Supper.with.the.Apostles...Though.what.he.did.has.now.
become.tradition,.the.reason.for.what.he.did.will.never.be.forgotten...
.
And.he.took.bread,.gave.thanks.and.broke.it,.and.gave.it.to.them,.saying,.This.is.my.body.given.
for.you;.do.this.in.remembrance.of.me...Luke.22:19.
.
While.many.view.the.tradition.of.taking.the.Lords.Supper.in.their.churches.as.some.supernatural.
event,.we.find.little.or.no.support.of.that.in.scripture...All.scripture.points.to.the.cross,.and.this.
that.Jesus.instructed.the.disciples.was.a.beacon.throughout.time...From.the.time.He.ascended.to.
the.day.He.will.return,.people.will.remember.the.cross..
.
But.a.religious.cult.will.take.simple.tradition.and.make.it.become.dangerous...Those.who.do.not.
follow.tradition.are.cut.off.and.scorned...Those.who.follow.it.are.filled.with.pride...That.pride.is.
amplified.as.the.minds.are.molded.to.become.one.personality..
.
We.can.find.this.example.even.in.nature...If.you.throw.a.piece.of.meat.to.a.pack.of.hungry.wolves,.
the.first.wolf.that.finds.it.will.start.tearing.into.it...If.theres.room.for.a.second.and.third,.they.
also.begin.to.devour.the.meat...But.when.those.around,.those.who.do.not.have.the.meat,.start.

trying.to.get.some.of.their.own,.the.three.wolves.will.snarl.and.growl.at.them.as.if.they.were.a.
different.kind.of.beast...Wolves.will.turn.against.other.wolves,.even.though.they.are.the.same.
creature..
.
Cults.are.no.different...Men.and.women.who.were.once.friends,.family,.or.neighbors.are.seen.as.
the.ones.who.didnt.get.the.meat....especially.if.they.once.had.the.meat.and.decided.to.eat.
something.else..
.
The.priority.of.cult.members.is.to.hold.onto.what.they.have,.because.they.are.internally.starving.
themselves.of.something.new..
.
Christianity,.by.nature,.is.spreading.the.Good.News.that.Christ.came.to.save.the.lost...We.are.
sharing.our.meat.with.others,.and.there.is.a.bountiful.supply...In.fact,.the.more.we.give.to.others,.
the.more.spiritual.meat.we.get.for.ourselves..
.
But.a.religious.cult.is.just.the.opposite...Rather.than.freely.give,.those.who.did.not.receive.the.
meat.are.scorned.and.condemned...Those.who.once.had.the.meat.will.never.be.given.another.
piece,.they.are.denied.and.rejected..
.
One.of.my.favorite.chapters.in.the.Old.Testament.is.Ezekiel.16,.Gods.Faithless.Bride...It.is.a.
love.story,.one.that.all.should.know.by.heart..
.
A.vision.is.given.to.Ezekiel,.describing.how.the.Children.of.Israel.continually.fell.to.idolatry.and.
were.not.faithful.to.her.True.Husband,.the.One.True.God...And.God.does.not.tell.Ezekiel.that.the.
Children.of.Israel.were.a.different.race.of.people,.intended.to.rise.above.others.to.scorn.and.
condemn.them..
.
God.says.this:..Your.origin.and.your.birth.are.of.the.land.of.the.Canaanites;.your.father.was.an.
Amorite.and.your.mother.a.Hittite...And.as.for.your.birth,.on.the.day.you.were.born.your.cord.
was.not.cut,.nor.were.you.washed.with.water.to.cleanse.you,.nor.rubbed.with.salt,.nor.wrapped.
in.swaddling.cloths...Ezekiel.16:1\4.
.
The.Children.of.Israel.were.comprised.of.human.beings...They.were.the.same.flesh.and.bone.as.
the.Amorites.and.the.Hittites,.and.yet.God.chose.them...They.did.not.earn.their.being.chosen.by.
the.worldly.pleasures.that.they.could.have.forbade..
.
And.more.than.that,.God.tells.Ezekiel.that.they.were.not.holy.when.He.chose.them...God.calls.
them.naked..
.
When.I.passed.by.you.again.and.saw.you,.behold,.you.were.at.the.age.for.love,.and.I.spread.the.
corner.of.my.garment.over.you.and.covered.your.nakedness;.I.made.my.vow.to.you.and.entered.
into.a.covenant.with.you,.declares.the.Lord.God,.and.you.became.mine...Ezekiel.16:8.
.

www.seekyethetruth.com.

224.

Throughout.the.chapter,.God.reminds.Ezekiel.how.Israel.fell.to.idolatry.time.after.time...She.had.
become.nothing.more.than.a.harlot,.unfaithful.to.the.One.True.God.and.becoming.intimate.with.
the.idols.of.Baal..
.
Israel.had.taken.pleasure.with.the.cults.of.Baal,.and.that.influence.had.turned.her.into.a.harlot...
God.describes.how.displeased.He.is.with.the.Children.of.Israel,.and.says.that.she.has.become.like.
her. mother,. the. Hittites.. . Gods. description. of. how. the. Children. of. Israel. had. become. is. no.
different.than.what.we.see.in.religious.cults.today..
.
Behold,.this.was.the.guilt.of.your.sister.Sodom:.she.and.her.daughters.had.pride,.excess.of.food,.
and. prosperous. ease,. but. did. not. aid. the. poor. and. needy.. . They. were. haughty. and. did. an.
abomination.before.me..So.I.removed.them,.when.I.saw.it...Samaria.has.not.committed.half.your.
sins.. You. have. committed. more. abominations. than. they,. and. have. made. your. sisters. appear.
righteous.by.all.the.abominations.that.you.have.committed...Bear.your.disgrace,.you.also,.for.you.
have. intervened. on. behalf. of. your. sisters.. Because. of. your. sins. in. which. you. acted. more.
abominably.than.they,.they.are.more.in.the.right.than.you..So.be.ashamed,.you.also,.and.bear.
your.disgrace,.for.you.have.made.your.sisters.appear.righteous...Ezekiel.16:49\52.
.
Sodom.and.Gomorrah.were.destroyed,.and.many.cult.pastors.give.an.unscriptural.reason.for.this...
The. reason. they. give. usually. supports. their. own. agenda,. whether. it. is. the. type. of. clothing,.
appearance,.music,.and.even.homosexuality...But.that.is.not.what.God.says..
.
God.says.that.Sodom.would.have.been.spared.had.they.showed.compassion.to.the.poor.and.
needy...They.were.haughty,.filled.with.pride..
.
They.had.become.like.the.religious.cults.of.today..
.
But.while.we.could.point.to.example.after.example.to.show.the.similarities.between.a.cult.and.
the.destruction.of.Sodom,.that.is.not.the.point.that.God.is.making...Their.hearts.and.minds.had.
been.molded.into.a.similar.personality...Abraham.pleaded.with.God.on.behalf.of.Sodom,.begging.
the.lord.to.spare.the.city.if.fifty.were.found.righteous...All.the.way.down.to.ten.people,.Abraham.
pleaded.with.God.and.asked.for.mercy...But.there.were.not.even.ten.to.be.found.in.the.city...They.
had.all.become.of.like.minds,.similar.personalities...All.filled.with.pride,.none.caring.for.the.poor.
and.needy...They.only.cared.about.themselves..
.
God.says.that.the.Children.of.Israel.had.made.the.city.of.Sodom.look.righteous!..They.were.worse!.
.
But.they.were.chosen..
.
They.did.not.save.themselves.through.works\righteous.faith...Israel.was.worse.than.the.city.that.
was.destroyed.by.fire,.condemned.by.God,.and.was.a.prostitute.in.the.eyes.of.God..
.
God.chose.them..

For.thus.says.the.Lord.God:.I.will.deal.with.you.as.you.have.done,.you.who.have.despised.the.
oath.in.breaking.the.covenant,.yet.I.will.remember.my.covenant.with.you.in.the.days.of.your.
youth,.and.I.will.establish.for.you.an.everlasting.covenant..Then.you.will.remember.your.ways.

to.you.as.daughters,.but.not.on.account.of.the.covenant.with.you...I.will.establish.my.covenant.

What.God.did.in.this.vision.to.Ezekiel.is.something.that.many.cult.pastors.will.never.do.as.they.
condemn. those. who. are. outside. the. boundaries. of. their. cult.. . God. was. very. harsh. and.
condemning.in.his.words,.telling.the.people.not.to.serve.other.gods.and.rebuking.them.for.the.
gods.they.served...God.wants.the.people.to.serve.Him,.and.Him.alone..
.
But.then,.after.calling.Israel.the.greatest.prostitute.that.ever.would.walk.the.face.of.the.earth,.
after.calling.her.the.mother.of.harlots,.God.lifts.her.up...God.shows.His.mercy.and.faithfulness..
.

.
An.unhealthy.intimacy.with.those.in.your.chosen.place.of.worship.leads.to.pride...If.your.religion.
gradually.transforms.you.into.seeing.other.humans.as.lost.and.dying.creatures.unworthy.of.the.
Cross.of.Calvary,.then.you.have.become.no.better.than.the.pack.of.wolves..
.
While.unhealthy.intimacy.seems.loving.from.the.inside,.and.those.inside.the.boundaries.view.
this.as.like\minded.and.in.one.accord,.those.on.the.outside.are.starving.for.the.piece.of.meat...
And.they.are.rejected.with.a.snarl...They.experience.the.opposite.of.love..
.
Paul.describes.healthy.Christians,.those.who.are.following.the.words.of.Christ...He.describes.how.

Splinter$Groups$$
.
Around. the. year. 1914,. only. ten. years. after. the. Azusa. Street. Revival,. a. group. of. Pentecostals.
severed.themselves.from.the.original.movement.to.create.a.division.that.would.later.become.
known. as. the. Oneness. Pentecostals. or. the. Apostolic. Faith.. . . This. new. Pentecostal.
denomination.of.faith.disagreed.on.not.only.the.Godhead,.but.also.upon.the.work.that.Jesus.
Christ.did.on.the.cross..
.
The.original.movement,.spearheaded.by.Charles.Parham.and.William.Seymour,.started.with.the.
foundation.of.the.Christianity.teaching.that.the.Grace.of.God.was.sufficient,.and.that.the.blood.
of. Jesus. Christ. upon. the. cross. covers. all. sin.. . Many. were. accepting. of. the. original. movement.
during.the.first.ten.years,.and.it.quickly.grew.in.number.and.spread...
.
From.Azusa.Street,.this.looked.like.the.Day.of.Pentecost.from.the.Bible...All.were.of.like.mind,.
like.faith,.and.it.looked.like.the.power.of.the.Holy.Spirit.fell.directly.on.the.flesh...They.were.
speaking.with.new.tongues,.and.those.tongues.seemed.to.be.on.fire.for.God..
.
Seeds.of.division.and.separation.were.planted.before.the.movement.started...Followers.of.John.
Alexander.Dowie.from.Zion,.Illinois.were.watching.as.a.new.movement.started.drawing.more.
attention. in. the. events. leading. to. the. Revival.. . When. Parham. was. accused. of. sodomy. and.
homosexual. relations. that. led. to. his. arrest,. the. Zion. City. Herald. ran. a. juicy. article. describing.
Parhams.fall.to.sin...This.sparked.a.rival.for.power.that.was.a.tug\of\war.between.Parham.and.
Zion. Citys. Wilbur. Voliva,. a. battle. for. leadership. that. would. continue. long. after. Parham. had.
seemingly.lost.his.position.as.founder.of.the.movement..
.
Consequently,.after.only.ten.years.into.the.movement,.that.like.mind.and.unity.of.faith.that.
the. early. followers. experienced. quickly. turned. into. conflict. and. opposition.. . Those. conflicts.
created.division,.and.caused.the.Pentecostal.faith.to.splinter.like.a.piece.of.glass.dropping.from.
the.sky..
.
When.we.hear.the.term.Oneness.Pentecostalism.today,.we.generally.think.on.terms.of.the.
Godhead,.specifically.the.teaching.that.Jesus.of.the.New.Testament.was.Jehovah.of.the.Old...We.
associate.this.type.of.Pentecostalism.with.those.that.denounce.the.triune.nature.of.God..
.
But.the.divisions.created.by.the.followers.of.the.false.prophet.John.Alexander.Dowie.of.Zion.City.
and. the. followers. of. the. homosexual. deviant. Charles. Fox. Parham. had. much. deeper. roots...
Parham.and.Voliva.were.in.a.leadership.contest,.and.both.battled.to.make.their.followers.become.
more.holy.in.the.eyes.of.their.fellow.man...The.doctrinal.beliefs.that.these.two.men.implanted.
would.later.become.the.foundation.for.the.doctrines.in.the.movement.teaching.that.these.things.
made.the.people.more.holy.in.the.eyes.of.God..though.these.divisions.were.political.in.nature.
instead.of.religious.changes.of.the.heart..
.

www.seekyethetruth.com.

234.

The.root.of.the.division.started.with.the.change.of.focus...While.most.of.the.Christians.in.the.
group.placed.their.focus.on.Jesus.Christ,.the.movement.itself.started.focusing.on.the.Holy.Spirit.
and.the.gifts.that.they.associated.with.the.Spirit...These.gifts,.over.time,.became.known.as.
the. evidence. of. the. Holy. Spirit,. and. without. this. evidence,. the. leaders. of. the. movement.
would.proclaim.that.the.poor.followers.soul.was.lost.and.bound.for.hell..
.
Then,. within. each. splinter. group,. these. groups. splintered. off. into. an. even. smaller. group. of.
people,.and.again.into.smaller.ones..
.
The.cult.of.William.Branham.has.numerous.groups,.none.agreeing.with.each.other.on.doctrine.
or.prophecy...There.is.the.Return.Ministry.group,.those.that.believe.Branham.will.rise.from.the.
dead.just.as.Jesus.Christ.did..before.the.resurrection...There.is.the.Thunders.groups,.those.
that.believe.they.have.the.special.mystery.of.the.Seven.Thunders.of.Revelation...There.are.
those.that.believe.William.Branham.was.god,.and.a.splinter.cell.thriving.locally.that.believe.that.
Branhams.son,.Joseph,.is.god...So.many.divisions.from.so.many.splinter.cells..and.their.original.
root.is.not.William.Branham...Their.roots.come.from.the.Azusa.Street.Revival...Branham.was.part.
of.the.Apostolic.Faith.Mission..
.
Many.people.do.not.realize.this,.but.the.reason.for.error.was.not.the.works\righteous.faith.or.
the.signs.and.wonders...In.the.original.revival,.there.were.many.who.still.held.strictly.to.Bible.
teaching...The.underlying.reason.the.movement.quickly.became.a.hotbed.of.division.and.conflict.
was.because.the.Apostolic.Faith.splinter.group.denied.the.Word..
.
Many.are.familiar.with.the.opening.of.the.book.of.John:.
.
In.the.beginning.was.the.Word,.and.the.Word.was.WITH.God,.and.the.Word.WAS.God..He.was.
in.the.beginning.WITH.God..All.things.were.made.through.him,.and.without.him.was.not.any.
thing.made.that.was.made..In.him.was.life,.and.the.life.was.the.light.of.men...John.1:1\4.
.
While.the.words.of.John.proclaim.the.Word.was.WITH.God,.and.that.He.was.in.the.beginning.
WITH.God,.the.new.breed.of.Pentecostals.began.teaching.that.this.Word.was.the.mind.of.
the.Invisible.God...They.started.teaching.that.this.Word.was.the.thoughts.expressed.by.a.being.
that.was.very.similar.in.nature.to.a.human..
.
For.this.doctrine.to.find.growth,.the.new.breed.of.Apostolic.also.had.to.change.the.nature.of.
Jesus.Christ,.inventing.a.new.and.different.Jesus...No.longer.was.the.Word.made.flesh.to.dwell.
among.us.in.their.teaching...The.Christ.that.the.movement.invented.claimed.that.Jesus.was.an.
incarnation.of.God,.the.Father.presenting.Himself.in.the.form.of.human.flesh..
.
But.when.you.deny.the.Word,.and.deny.the.Word.was.WITH.God,.and.deny.that.the.Word.WAS.
God,.there.will.be.conflict..
.
The.Gospel.according.to.John.describes.the.very.same.thing.the.Book.of.John.lays.out.plainly.for.
all.to.read:.

.
\\John.1:1\4.
.
..
.
It.is.interesting,.because.if.we.continue.reading.into.the.first.chapter,.John.tells.us.the.very.reason.
that.the.many.splinters.of.the.Pentecostal.faith.could.never.fellowship.with.one.another..
.
These. new. Apostolic. Pentecostals. started. proclaiming. the. many. sins. that. the. other.
Pentecostals. had. in. their. lives,. from. the. way. they. dressed. to. the. things. they. enjoyed.. . They.
started.teaching.that.they.were.better.than.the.other.splinter.groups,.because.they.did.not.have.
this.sin..
.
John.tells.us.that.if.we.do.must.walk.in.the.true.light.of.the.Word,.Jesus.Christ,.if.we.want.to.have.
true.fellowship...And.that.if.we.say.that.we.do.not.have.sin,.we.have.just.made.that.Word.a.liar:.
.
But.if.we.walk.in.the.light,.as.he.is.in.the.light,.we.have.fellowship.with.one.another,.and.the.
blood.of.Jesus.his.Son.cleanses.us.from.all.sin..If.we.say.we.have.no.sin,.we.deceive.ourselves,.
and.the.truth.is.not.in.us..If.we.confess.our.sins,.he.is.faithful.and.just.to.forgive.us.our.sins.and.
to.cleanse.us.from.all.unrighteousness...If.we.say.we.have.not.sinned,.we.make.him.a.liar,.and.
his.word.is.not.in.us....John.1:7\10.
.
In.fact,.if.we.continue.reading.the.Book.of.John,.we.find.that.the.new.splinter.groups.placed.
themselves.directly.under.sin.when.they.denied.that.Jesus.Christ.was.the.Son.of.God.for.their.
Oneness. teaching.. . John. says. that. anyone. who. denies. that. Jesus. was. the. Son. of. God. cannot.
overcome:.
.
Everyone.who.believes.that.Jesus.is.the.Christ.has.been.born.of.God,.and.everyone.who.loves.the.
Father.loves.whoever.has.been.born.of.him...By.this.we.know.that.we.love.the.children.of.God,.
when.we.love.God.and.obey.his.commandments..For.this.is.the.love.of.God,.that.we.keep.his.
commandments..And.his.commandments.are.not.burdensome..For.everyone.who.has.been.born.
of.God.overcomes.the.world..And.this.is.the.victory.that.has.overcome.the.worldour.faith..Who.

.
John.makes.it.very.clear,.driving.the.point.home.that.there.are.Three..not.One...He.compares.
the.Three.in.heaven.with.the.representation.of.those.Three.here.on.earth.
.
For.there.are.Three.that.bear.record.in.heaven,.the.Father,.the.Word,.and.the.Holy.Ghost:.and.

.
And.there.are.three.that.bear.witness.in.earth,.the.Spirit,.and.the.water,.and.the.blood:.and.these.
three.agree.in.one....John.5:7\8.
.
The. splinter. groups. that. follow. the. Oneness. teaching. have. denied. the. first. part. of. these. two.
points...If.we.were.to.re\write.the.words.of.the.scriptures.according.to.their.faith,.it.would.be.
something.like.this:.
.
For.there.is.only.ONE.that.bears.record.in.heaven,.Oneness.god...And.Oneness.god.is.the.ONLY.

heaven,.but.by.placing.their.evidence.of.the.Holy.Spirit.on.these.gifts,.they.have.denied.the.
three.here.on.earth...
.
John.does.say.that.the.Spirit.bears.record.here.on.earth...That.part.is.correct...But.there.are.three,.
remember?..We.cant.forget.the.blood!..We.cant.forget.the.water!.
.
Our.baptism.is.the.outward.expression.of.our.faith.in.Jesus.Christ,.the.Word...And.that.Word.was.

I.was.recently.shown.a.video.of.a.youth.meeting.for.the.children.of.the.cult.of.William.Branham...
The.point.of.interest.was.one.of.the.cult.pastors.choosing.two.children.from.the.audience,.making.
them.prance.around.the.stage.behind.him,.each.pretending.to.be.a.word...One.child.was.signs,.
and.the.other.child.was.wonders,.and.the.pastor.himself.pretended.to.believe...
.
His.message.to.the.children.was.signs.and.wonders.follow.them.that.believe..

and.wonders.for.other.children.who.are.not.looking.for.Christ...Why.would.they.need.God.if.an.
atheist.in.college.can.perform.the.same.trick?..The.atheist.will.even.tell.you.how.he.did.it!.
.
And.dont.get.me.wrong...There.is.nothing.wrong.with.faith,.and.I.do.believe.that.faith.can.move.
mountains..so.long.as.there.is.a.need.strong.enough.to.move.it...I.do.not.believe.we.are.called.
to.go.around.staring.at.mountains,.trying.to.faith.it.to.the.other.side,.like.the.power.of.the.
Force.in.Star.Wars...
.
You.see,.that.is.when.your.faith.turns.into.sorcery...When.we.try.to.do.signs.and.wonders.
without. intervention. from. the. God. of. Heaven,. we. are. trying. to. be. sorcerers. like. the. evil.
Saruman.of.Lord.of.the.Rings...We.are.trying.to.become.the.bad.guys,.not.the.good.guys..

Even.though.Hollywood.is.so.far.distanced.from.God,.we.find.that.many.of.our.movies.give.us.
the.same.message...They.are.written.from.books,.which.also.give.the.same.message,.some.of.
which. come. from. authors. who. actually. read. their. Bibles.. . Sorcery. is. demonic,. and. was.
condemned.under.Mosaic.Law...Those.who.went.around.holding.strings.with.bracelets.on.them.
to.trick.the.children.of.Israel.into.believing.they.had.great.power.were.stoned.to.death..
.
But.in.the.day.we.are.living,.we.have.not.witnessed.the.great.signs.and.wonders.that.God.did.
as.he.was.creating.the.Church...We.did.not.witness.the.Red.Sea.parting...We.did.not.witness.the.
walls.crumbling.down.from.simply.marching.around.them.seven.times...We.did.not.witness.Jesus.
walking.on.the.water,.or.turning.water.into.wine..
.
More.to.the.point,.we.did.not.witness.what.the.Pagan.Gentiles.witnessed.as.the.early.church.was.
spreading.Christianity..
.
When.God.comes.on.the.scene.to.show.the.nations.serving.other.gods.that.He.is.the.Supreme.
God,.and.according.to.scripture,.He.does.great.signs.and.wonders.before.the.people...He.will.take.
a.people.that.are.familiar.with.the.sorcery.and.the.magic.of.the.Pagan.temples,.show.the.people.
that.He.is.far.more.powerful,.and.convince.them.to.leave.their.idolatry.to.serve.the.One.True.
God..
.
All.throughout.the.Bible,.we.have.examples.of.this...When.God.turns.a.people.from.serving.idols,.
there.are.signs.and.wonders...The.people.need.to.be.convinced.in.order.to.break.the.bonds.that.
mentally.hold.them.to.their.magic..
.
But.notice.also:.after.the.people.have.turned.to.the.One.True.God,.then.God.no.longer.needs.to.
show.them.his.power.and.might...After.He.fills.their.hearts.with.His.Love,.it.is.that.Perfect.Love.
that.holds.them.and.draws.them.closer.to.God..not.the.signs.and.wonders..
.
But.the.Divine.Healing.movement.that.started.with.John.Alexander.Dowie.of.Zion.City.and.later.
re\started.with.William.Branham.seemed.to.take.the.opposing.standpoint...In.fact,.when.you.
show.a.follower.of.the.cult.of.William.Branham.any.of.the.failed.prophecies,.they.will.look.you.
right.in.the.eye.and.say,.He.is.a.vindicated.prophet...He.could.heal!.

definition. used. by. the. Pentecostals. to. describe. things. that. did. not. agree. with. their. rules. or.
theology,.but.the.Greek.word.kosmikas.that.describe.things.pertaining.to.this.world.instead.

.
Show.yourself.in.all.respects.to.be.a.model.of.good.works,.and.in.your.teaching.show.integrity,.
dignity,.and.sound.speech.that.cannot.be.condemned,.so.that.an.opponent.may.be.put.to.shame,.

worldly(kosmikas).passions,.and.to.live.self\controlled,.upright,.and.godly.lives.in.the.present.age,.
waiting.for.our.blessed.hope,.the.appearing.of.the.glory.of.our.great.God.and.Savior.Jesus.Christ.
.Titus.2:7\13.
.
When.the.Apostles.and.missionaries.were.spreading.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ.to.the.temples.
filled. with. magic,. God. knew. that. their. minds. were. focused. on. the. things. of. this. earth. . not.
heavenly. things.. . So. to. help. pull. them. out. of. idolatry,. God. also. gave. them. earthly. signs. and.
wonders.to.witness..
.
Healing.was.a.sign...It.was.used.by.God.to.help.bring.others.to.Christ,.and.there.are.examples.of.
it.in.scripture...But.healing.focuses.on.this.earthly.body..not.the.heavenly.body.or.the.soul...
Healing.is.a.blessing.from.God,.a.blessing.that.God.still.uses.today.for.His.Glory,.but.our.focus.
cannot.be.on.the.earthly.body..it.must.be.on.our.soul...And.not.only.our.soul,.but.the.others.
around.us!.
.
Paul.even.gives.us.this.example.in.scripture...Though.Paul.administered.healing.(from.God).to.the.
many,.we.find.that.he.did.not.go.around.showing.signs.and.wonders.to.the.saved.unless.it.was.
for.Gods.own.purpose...He.did.not.heal.Trophimus:.
.
Erastus.stayed.in.Corinth,.but.Trophimus.I.have.left.in.Miletus.sick.(2.Timothy.4:20)..
.
When.Timothy.fell.sick,.Paul.did.not.send.brothers.to.lay.hands.on.him.and.administer.healing.
from. the. Lord.. . Paul. knew. that. there. was. a. medicine. Timothy. could. take. to. get. better. . a.
medicine.that.is.strictly.condemned.by.the.cult.of.William.Branham:.
.
No. longer. drink. only. water,. but. use. a. little. wine. for. your. stomachs. sake. and. your. frequent.
infirmities.(1.Timothy.5:23)..
.
But.the.Divine.Healing.movement.that.was.kick\started.by.William.Branham.and.has.produced.
the.likes.of.Benny.Hinn.and.others.do.not.take.the.same.approach...EVERYONE.can.be.healed!..
All.you.need.to.do.is.have.faith!..Keep.the.faith,.or.you.will.lose.your.healing!.
.
These.ministers.do.not.point.to.God.for.healing...If.they.did,.then.they.would.not.have.a.single.
follower,.because.the.people.would.know.they.could.go.directly.to.the.Source...Instead,.we.
have.the.followers.of.Benny.Hinn,.the.followers.of.Oral.Roberts,.and.the.followers.of.William.
Branham...As.missionaries.are.sent,.they.are.converted.to.The.Message.or.some.other.agenda.
.not.conversions.to.Christ..
.
That.is.because.the.fundamental.element.to.the.healing.is.the.man.behind.the.podium...Without.
him,.all.of.these.hundreds.of.people.would.surely.die.from.their.sickness!..That.medicine.the.
doctor.gave.them.has.NOTHING.to.do.with.the.healing!..Its.ME!..The.man.on.the.platform!..Pay.

Before.Branhamism.turned.into.a.cult.following,.William.Branham.tried.to.become.Sauron...He.
wanted.the.people.to.believe.in.HIM.for.their.healing...Even.the.second.commission.story.he.
invented.gave.that.exact.idea:..If.you.can.get.the.people.to.believe.in.you.[William.Branham],.
nothing.will.stand.in.your.way,.not.even.cancer..
.
Branham.even.promoted.himself.as.the.one.with.the.power..again,.bypassing.God...It.is.almost.

wide.in.a.long.white.robe.and.crooked.stick.screaming,.YOU.SHALL.NOT.PASS!.

God.is.calling.a.Church...He.is.calling.a.people.that.will.serve.Him,.even.if.their.one.single.calling.

to. the. Biblical. idea. that. faith. in. Jesus. Christ. has. the. power. to. heal. your. body.. They. will.
immediately.think.of.the.cross,.where.Jesus.died,.and.by.the.stripes.on.his.back.we.are.given.

.
But. when. you. mention. Faith. Healing. to. someone. who. has. been. influenced. by. the. cult. of.

the.scriptural.description.of.discernment,.the.Holy.Spirit.helping.you.to.discern.between.good.
and.evil..they.associate.Faith.Healing.with.the.magical.power.of.guessing.names.and.addresses.
from.the.back.of.a.prayer.card...
.
Why?.Because.throughout.the.many.sermons.recorded.by.William.Branham,.the.cult.leader,.they.
are.taught.through.example.after.example.of.the.man.on.the.platform.guessing.the.diseases.of.
the.afflicted...

hands.of.the.campaign.team..Many.in.the.cult.will.tell.you.sincerely.that.William.Branham.was.
all\knowing,.just.like.Jesus.Christ..In.fact,.there.are.those.who.have.said.Branham.was.God.among.
us,.and.entire.cult.sects.like.the.Christ.Branham.movement.believe.that.this.man.of.flesh.and.
bone.was.Christ.Himself..They.have.made.William.Branham.himself.into.a.different.jesus..They.
have. combined. both. elements. of. the. scripture. from. Matthew. 24:24. into. one. single. William.
Branham:..
.
"For.false.Christs.and.false.prophets.will.arise.and.will.show.great.signs.and.wonders,.so.as.to.
mislead...".Mat.24:24..
.
I.find.it.odd,.because.when.other.devious.men.do.the.same.tricks,.those.men.are.immediately.
scorned.by.members.of.this.cult..John.Alexander.Dowie,.the.man.Branham.revered.and.fashioned.
his. healing. ministry. after. was. a. false. prophet,. and. though. he. promoted. himself. as. the.
reincarnation. of. Malachi. 4. long. before. Branham,. the. cult. members. will. examine. the. life. and.

In.the.early.days.of.the.faith.healing.movement,.those.who.pretended.to.have.this.power.to.
peer.into.the.life.of.those.in.the.prayer.lines.all.used.similar.tactics..Youll.find.that.before.the.
sudden.rise.of.technology,.Prayer.Cards.were.very.necessary..even.required..in.the.healing.
movement..The.people.were.told.that.these.cards,.with.sections.for.the.patients.name,.address,.
sickness,.and.other.information.were.required.so.that.they.could.keep.the.line.orderly.and.avoid.
confusion..On.the.front.of.these.cards.was.a.number,.and.that.number.was.called.to.bring.the.
patients.to.the.front.of.the.line,.one\at\a\time...
.
In.smaller.groups.of.people,.it.was.obvious.that.the.cards.were.not.needed..The.people.would.
simply.talk.to.an.usher,.tell.them.their.diseases,.and.be.given.a.place.in.line..The.same.usher.that.
would.have.access.to.the.written.card.had.direct.access.to.the.person.and.their.afflictions...
.
The.early.faith.healers.that.used.this.magicians.trick.did.not.have.technology,.but.they.did.have.
a. very. powerful. gift. that. God. had. given. them:. their. memory.. To. advance. the. power. of. their.
memory,. some. of. these. faith. healers. would. fast. for. the. Lord,. after. learning. the. amazing.
effect.that.fasting.has.on.memory...
.
Others. would. use. similar. memorization. skills. that. we. teach. our. kindergarteners. in. school..
Memory. through. association. helps. the. mind. categorize. thoughts. and. gives. you. the. ability. to.
retain.much,.much.more..These.Faith.Healers.would.often.be.given.the.color.of.a.shirt,.or.some.
other.unique.description.of.the.patient.by.the.ushers,.and.suddenly.be.given.the.magical.power.
to.know.that.the.lady.in.the.green.sweater.had.eye.trouble...
.
Again,.its.odd,.because.if.these.things.are.pointed.out.to.a.cult.follower.of.William.Branham.
about.any.other.minister,.they.will.quickly.scorn.and.tell.you.that.the.other.ministers.were.the.
Jambres.and.Jambres.that.withstood.Branhams.Moses...
.
But. Branham. himself. is. seen. using. these. memorization. techniques. all. throughout. his. early.
ministry.. This. one. is. the. most. obvious,. because. Branham. cannot. even. see. the. sweater. from.
where.he.is.standing,.and.asks.someone.closeby.to.confirm.the.color.of.the.ladys.sweater:..
.
Can.you.see.that.she's.got.a.green.sweater.on.from.here?.Yes,.ma'am,.that's.fine..How.many.
fingers. would. you. think. she. has\\she's. holding. up. there?. Can. you. count. that. far?. It's. kind. of.
shadowy.but....That's.exactly.right..Now,.say,."Praise.the.Lord,".everybody..You.can.raise.your.
head..Now,.sister,.your.sight.has.coming.and.you're.going.to.be.a.perfect.well.woman.again..47\

Under.normal.circumstances,.Branham.would.have.simply.asked.someone.close.by.to.ask.the.
lady.if.she.indeed.was.struggling.with.her.sight,.but.the.color.of.the.sweater.was.very.important.
to.this.part.of.the.meeting..The.lady.with.the.green.sweater.had.entered.the.prayer.meeting.to.

If.you.examine.the.prayer.lines.for.the.first.few.years.before.these.faith.healers.switched.from.
memorization. to. technology,. we. find. examples. throughout. the. prayer. lines. of. unusual.
memorization.of.the.physical.features.of.the.patients..The.colors.are.most.obvious,.because.most.
men.do.not.notice.the.way.other.men..or.even.women..are.dressed..Most.men.look.at.the.

We. find. many. sermons. throughout. the. prayer. lines. where. William. Branham. reminds. the.
audience.of.their.senses:.see,.taste,.feel,.smell,.and.hear..While.Branham.tells.the.audience.
that.they.have.a.sixth.sense.(the.sense.of.faith),.he.will.focus.on.giving.them.an.example.of.
what.they.see.before.them..He.will.focus.on.their.one.sense,.describing.details.of.the.patient.that.
would.not.match.the.others...
.
The. audience. were. caught. unaware.. This. memorization. technique. has. fooled. thousands. of.
people.by.devious.minds.since.the.travelling.charlatans.hit.the.Old.West.selling.their.magic.elixirs...
.
But.there.was.one.problem:.memory..Memory.only.lasts.for.so.long..Memory.only.retains.so.
much...
.
To.counter.the.many.questions.of.why.God.would.only.give.this.gift.for.a.limited.period.of.time.
when.there.were.literally.hundreds,.sometimes.thousands.of.people.desperately.seeking.healing,.
the.ministers.using.these.devious.tactics.must.employ.a.strategy.that.would.scripturally.answer.
the. questions.. They. knew. that. there. were. sincere. people,. people. who. had. surrendered. their.
heart.and.soul.to.Jesus.Christ..And.they.knew.that.there.were.too.many.people.to.memorize..So.
they.must.grow.weary.from.all.of.the.supernatural.power.flowing.through.them...
.
Under.normal.circumstances,.there.is.little.harm.with.telling.your.audience.that.youve.grown.
tired..Every.man.grows.tired..Every.man.gets.weak,.especially.after.working.the.crowds...
.
But.Branham.took.things.a.step.further.than.the.rest..To.make.himself.look.better.before.the.
people,.he.decided.to.demote.Jesus.Christ..He.would.start.telling.his.audience.that.Jesus.Himself.
also.grew.weak.from.healing.the.sick:..
.

He.was.God..Hallelujah..That's.right..He.was.a.man.when.He.was.laying.there.on.the.back.of.that.
boat.that.night,.so.tired.from.healing.the.sick.and.the.virtue.going.out.of.Him,.till.He.was.so.sleepy.
till.the.waves.didn't.wake.Him.up..51\0506A.BELIEVEST.THOU.THIS..
.
Branham.would.give.this.example.many.times,.pointing.to.the.King.James.Version.of.the.book.of.
Mark,.describing.Jesus.as.the.woman.touched.His.garment..The.King.James.Version.says.that.
virtue.had.gone.out.from.him...
.
This.phrase.was.confusing.to.the.people..Many.knew.what.the.word.virtue.meant,.and.virtue.
is.something.that.you.retain..not.something.that.leaves.you..So.Branham.was.successfully.able.
to.convince.the.people.that.this.phrase.in.their.Bibles.meant.that.Jesus.grew.weak.from.His.gift.
of.discernment..(Again,.demoting.Christ.from.being.God,.to.just.being.another.charlatan.who.
was.given.a.gift.that.made.Him.tired.)..
.
The. newer. translations. use. the. word. power. for. this. passage.. Correctly. translated,. it. is. a.
supernatural.power..not.something.that.gives.God.a.weakness..This.is.the.same.word.used.in.
other.passages.you.are.familiar.with,.even.in.the.King.James.Version:..
.
ye.be.endued.with.power.from.on.high..(Luke.24:49)..
.
Then.cometh.the.end,.when.he.shall.have.delivered.up.the.kingdom.to.God,.even.the.Father;.
when.he.shall.have.put.down.all.rule.and.all.authority.and.power..(1.Cor.15:24)..
.
But. in. the. early. 50s,. things. changed.. In. 1954,. Texas. Instruments. began. demonstrating. the.
technology.of.the.future:.transistor.radios...
.
These. small,. lightweight. radios. were. both. portable. and. powerful. to. men. who. wanted. quick.
access.to.over\the\air.communications..Instead.of.the.much.larger.vacuum.tubes,.these.devices.
contained.a.small.electronic.component,.a.transistor,.that.made.the.much.larger.devices.now.fit.
into.the.hands.of.the.listener..By.late.1954,.they.became.available.to.the.general.public...
.
But.these.radios.were.only.single.part.of.the.equation,.and.the.speakers.were.not.as.portable.as.
the.device.itself..For.this.electronic.device.to.be.on.the.platform,.the.divine.healer.would.also.
need.an.amplifier,.speakers,.and.a.transmitting.device.to.send.the.signal...
.
1955.brought.the.answer..In.February,.1955,.a.company.called.Raytheon.produced.the.second.
transistor.radio,.the.Raytheon.8\TP\1..It.was.more.expensive.than.the.Texas.Instruments.version,.
but.included.a.built\in.four\inch.speaker..Immediately.afterward,.several.other.companies,.such.
as.Zenith,.RCA,.DeWald,.and.Crosley,.started.producing.their.own.versions.of.this.device...
.
The.timing.is.uncanny..Only.a.few.months.after.these.devices.hit.the.market,.William.Branham.
had.a.vision...
.

Suddenly,.in.February.of.1956,.Branham.had.a.vision.of.being.able.to.perform.his.miracles.for.
much.longer.periods.of.time!..
.
Many.in.the.cult.have.long.forgot.about.this.vision,.save.those.in.the.Return.Ministry.splinter.
group.that.stems.from.Jeffersonville,.Indiana..Branhams.vision.is.describing.the.large.tent.that.
he.saw.in.this.vision,.and.the.ministers.of.the.cult.know.that.this.vision.was.not.fulfilled.until.
Branham.died.in.1965...
.
But.this.tent.had.two.major.points,.the.first.one.largely.overlooked:..
.
The.first.point.given.by.William.Branham.was.that.there.was.a.change.in.the.ministry..No.longer.
would.this.discernment.(mind.reading).be.limited.to.small.periods.of.time..The.prayer.lines.
could.go.for.hours.at.a.time...
.
And. He. said,. "You. remember. that. name. that. you. were. hunting. that. time. that. you. dreamed.
about?".And.I.said,."Yes."..
.
He.said,."I'll.meet.you.in.there.and.this.time.it.won't.be.a.public.show.".And.the.vision.left.me..
Now,. we. got. the. tent. in. making.. And. then. in. there. I'll. be. able. to. carry. a. prayer. line. right. on.
through..Now,.you.remember,.I.speak.this.before.it.comes.to.pass..The.exceedingly.abundantly.
is. fixing. to. take. place.. I. can't. wait. till. I. get. into. that. place.. I. just.... My. heart's. a. yearning. and.
burning..And.these.things.here.that.you.see.now.will.be.amateur.to.what.our.Lord.is.fixing.to.do..
You.just.remember.that.with.all.your.heart..And.live.for.Him.now.and.be.reverent..And.just.be.
yourself..Just\\just.be.Mrs..Doe.or.Mr..Doe.and\\and.love.the.Lord.and.just.move.on.with.a.true.
heart.before.Him,.and.love.Him..He.will.take.care.of.the.rest.of.it..You.see?.But.then.it'll.be.no.
end.to.the.prayer.line.for.it'll.go.hours.after.hours..56\0219.BEING.LED.OF.THE.HOLY.SPIRIT..
.
Both.this.technology.and.this.vision.has.been.largely.overlooked..And.the.technology.in.the.
Branham.Tabernacle.in.Jeffersonville,.Indiana.has.been.largely.overlooked...
.
There.is.radio.broadcasting.equipment.built.into.the.Branham.Tabernacle..The.recorded.sermons.
of.William.Branham.are.played.inside.the.building,.but.they.are.also.broadcast.to.the.parking.lot.
using.this.equipment..The.group.known.as.the.lazy.bunch,.those.who.show.up.late.to.sit.in.
their. cars. and. listen. to. the. sermon. on. their. radios,. use. this. broadcasting. equipment. to. avoid.
sitting.in.the.hard,.uncomfortable.pews.of.the.cult.church...
.
But.there.is.a.reason.this.equipment.is.there..There.is.a.reason.the.movement.is.so.filled.with.
technology,.expensive.technology,.when.there.are.poor.people.sending.in.money.without.even.
shoes.on.their.feet...
.
I. would. ask. you. what. God. needs. with. this. technology,. when. simply. passing. out. paper. Bibles.
would.spread.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ..I.would.ask.why.the.Tabernacle.has.radio.broadcasting.
equipment,.when.the.people.SHOULD.be.going.into.the.church.for.worship.instead.of.sleeping.in.
their.cars...

.
But.in.your.hearts,.you.already.know.the.answer.to.those.questions..You.know.this.does.not.
make. sense,. and. you. know. that. the. rest. of. this. tent. vision. has. already. failed. when. an.
automobile.accident.claimed.the.life.of.the.false.prophet...
.
So.instead,.I.will.leave.you.with.this.question:.Why.were.you.so.easily.convinced.that.Jesus.Christ.
could.possibly.grow.weak.from.healing.the.sick?.Why.were.you.so.easily.convinced.that.Jesus,.
Gods.only.Son,.would.need.to.see.a.vision.from.the.Father.before.healing.anyone?.Why.were.
you.so.easily.convinced.that.this.virtue,.the.same.word.used.as.power.meant.that.Jesus.had.
lost.His.strength?..
.
Listen.again.to.the.description.given.by.John.the.Revelator..Remember.John.Alexander.Dowie,.
the.one.who.died,.and.rose.again.in.power.through.the.Divine.Healing.movement..Think.about.
the.loud,.resounding.voice.of.the.Charismatic\style.preaching.William.Branham.had.as.Dowies.
ministry.was.given.power.long.after.he.died..Think.of.the.image,.hanging.in.the.houses.of.almost.
every.single.member.of.this.cult..Think.of.these.things,.and.read.this.scripture.from.the.Book.of.
Revelation:..
.
Then.I.saw.another.beast,.coming.out.of.the.earth..He.had.two.horns.like.a.lamb,.but.he.spoke.
like.a.dragon..He.exercised.all.the.authority.of.the.first.beast.on.his.behalf,.and.made.the.earth.
and. its. inhabitants. worship. the. first. beast,. whose. fatal. wound. had. been. healed.. And. he.
performed.great.and.miraculous.signs,.even.causing.fire.to.come.down.from.heaven.to.earth.in.
full.view.of.men..Because.of.the.signs.he.was.given.power.to.do.on.behalf.of.the.first.beast,.he.
deceived.the.inhabitants.of.the.earth..He.ordered.them.to.set.up.an.image.in.honor.of.the.beast.
who.was.wounded.by.the.sword.and.yet.lived..He.was.given.power.to.give.breath.to.the.image.
of.the.first.beast,.so.that.it.could.speak.and.cause.all.who.refused.to.worship.the.image.to.be.
killed..Rev.13:11\15..
.
This.was.not.a.person.crying.out.to.you.to.examine.your.religion.as.these.cult.pastors.falsely.
claim..None.of.the.apologetics.are.showing.you.great.signs.and.wonders..They.are.just.men.and.
women,.having.no.power.to.harm.you..They.point.you.back.to.your.bibles..But.that.same.chapter.
says.that.this.one.was.given.power:.He.was.given.power.to.make.war.against.the.saints.and.to.
conquer.them..(Rev.13:7)..
.
Do.you.really.believe.the.Jesus.of.the.Bible,.or.have.you.so.easily.accepted.William.Branhams.
jesus?..
.
Is.there.hope.of.you.accepting.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ.that.is.in.the.Bible,.or.have.you.already.
been.conquered?.

Song$Of$Solomon$S$Must$Be$Over$18$
.
For.some,.Song.of.Solomon.is.a.strange.book.of.the.Bible..There.are.many.who.falsely.believe.
that.this.one.book.does.not.fit.in.the.bigger.Book,.and.that.it.has.no.relevance.to.the.rest.of.the.
books.in.the.Bible.canon.we.have.today..Pastors.avoid.this.book,.because.they.don't.understand.
it.\.especially.pastors.in.the.cult.of.William.Branham..
.
Out.of.the.hundreds.of.sermons.recorded.by.William.Marrion.Branham,.you.will.not.find.this.
book.mentioned.once..Not.one.single.time..
.
Cult.pastors,.inclined.to.preach."only.what.the.prophet.said,".don't.preach.this.book..Without.
having.reference.to.this.book.in.the."tape.index,".they.don't.understand.or.see.how.this.book.fits.
in.the.context.of."The.Message".of.William.Branham..
.
Because.it.doesn't..
.
You.see,.this.book,.the.Song.of.Solomon,.is.considered.to.be.a.parable.of.God's.undying.love.
towards.the.Children.of.Israel,.and.has.even.been.considered.to.be.a.parable.of.Christianity.itself..
It.has.no.prophecy,.no.condemnation.of.idolatrous.nations,.nothing.negative.to.preach.against..
And. without. something. negative. to. preach. against,. very. few. pastors. in. the. cult. of. William.
Branham.would.even.have.a.sermon..
.
This.book.is.uplifting..It.is.showing.love,.pure.love.between.a.man.and.a.beautiful.woman..It.is.
telling.us.how.good.love.is,.and.how.men.should.love.their.wives.instead.of.the.master\servant.
hierarchy.that.this.cult.promotes..
.
William.Branham.avoided.this.book.entirely,.because.it.directly.conflicted.with.his."Women.were.
designed.by.Satan".theology,.and.his.speaking.so.harshly.against.beauty..Cult.pastors.don't.know.
what.to.do.with.this.book,.because.they.know.in.their.hearts.when.they.read.this.book.that.it.
uplifts.everything.Branham.stands.against..Chapter.seven,.specifically,.is.a.chapter.that.you.won't.
find.any.cult.pastor.preaching.about..
.
Pastors.who.preach.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ.in.its.simplicity.can.use.this.book.in.many.ways..
The.book.parallels.true.communion.with.God,.how.our.love.and.adoration.for.Christ.brings.a.
response.of.even.greater.love..It.shows.us.that.we.can.rejoice.in.Christ..The.King.brought.his.bride.
into.His.chambers,.and.though.His.face.was.hidden.from.us.for.a.time,.he.now.abides.with.us..
The.list.of.parallels.between.Christ.and.His.Bride.are.found.all.throughout.the.book,.from.start.to.
finish..
.
But.cult.pastors.are.not.founded.in.the.Gospel..Many.have.never.experienced.the.true.Mercy.and.
Grace.that.Christ.has.offered.us.through.His.work.on.the.cross..Many.only.know.how.to.preach.
by.example,.and.that.example.is.the.recorded.sermons.of.a.man.who.had.a.message.to.condemn.
the.people.rather.than.to.uplift.the.Bride.of.Christ..

.
They.have.been.taught.to.look.for.little.things.to.pick.on..When.Branham.spoke.against.women.
wearing. pants. to. promote. the. Pentecostal. dress. code,. the. pastors. started. enforcing. longer.
dresses.. When. Branham. condemned. women. in. high\heels,. pastors. started. preaching. against.
open\toed. shoes.. In. every. way,. shape,. and. form,. William. Branham's. ministry. was. the. exact.
opposite.of.this.book..Everything.that.Solomon.loved.and.enjoyed.with.his.Bride.\.which.was.a.
representation.of.Christ.and.His.Bride.\.the.cult.of.William.Branham.stands.firmly.against..
.
Chapter.Seven,.verse.1.starts.by.describing.the.beauty.of.the.feet.of.the.bride:.
.
"How.beautiful.are.your.feet.in.sandals,.O.noble.daughter!".
.
If.this.were.two.new.converts.entering.the.congregation.of.the.cult,.a.man.and.a.woman.who.
had. not. yet. observed. the. dress. code,. the. pastor. would. quickly. change. his. sermon. and. start.
preaching.how.that.statement.denied.both.William.Branham's."Message".and.their.dress.code..
.
"Our.'prophet'.said.that.'Beauty.is.of.the.Devil!'.Don't.you.come.in.this.'house.of.God'.wearing.
sandals.with.open\toed.sandals!.Noble.daughter.indeed!".
.
The. Pentecostal. movement,. the. foundation. underlying. William. Branham's. "Message,". has.
trained.our.hearts.and.minds.against.the.natural.feelings.of.our.bodies..To.enjoy.beauty.is.sinful,.
according.to.the.cult..To.speak.of.the.sculpture.of.a.woman's.body.is.evil.\.the."prophet".told.us.
that.her.sculpture.was.designed.by.Satan.himself!.
.
In.fact,.this.book.of.the.Bible,.the."Song.of.Solomon".is.almost.considered.to.be.pornography.by.
the.ministers.of.this.cult..When.you.ascribe.to.all.of.the.teachings.of.William.Branham's.twisted.
description.of.Satan,.women,.beauty,.and.lust,.you.end.up.with.a.programmed.group.of.people.
who.are.afraid.to.read.a.book.about.the.love.between.a.man.and.a.woman..
.
But.Solomon.told.his.bride.that.her.rounded.thighs.were."like.jewels,.the.work.of.a.master.hand.".
He.told.her.that.she.was.sculpted.beautifully.\.just.as.Christ,.the.Master.Builder,.has.sculpted.a.
Church..
.
But.here.is.where.it.gets.very.interesting:.
.
Verse.2:."Your.navel.is.a.rounded.bowl.that.never.lacks.mixed.wine.".
.
.
Imagine.quoting.this.scripture.in.front.of.a.cult.pastor.that.follows.William.Branham!.This.breaks.
every.single.rule.in.Branham's.rulebook!.They.were.drinking.WINE!.Not.just.drinking.it,.Solomon.
drank.it.from.her.navel!.

Many.are.familiar.with.Proverbs.3:5:.

"Trust.in.the.Lord.with.all.thine.heart;.and.lean.not.unto.thine.own.understanding.".

.
"It.shall.be.health.to.thy.navel,.and.marrow.to.thy.bones.".\.Prov.3:8.
.
.
In.Ezekiel.16,.Ezekiel.prophesied.about.God's.Faithless.Bride.(The.Children.of.Israel.).The."navel".
of.the.Bride.was.her.undoing,.giving.her.great.pain.and.sorrow..God's.Bride.was.never.cut.off.
from.the.idolatrous.nations:.
.
Thus.saith.the.Lord.God.unto.Jerusalem;.Thy.birth.and.thy.nativity.is.of.the.land.of.Canaan;.thy.
father.was.an.Amorite,.and.thy.mother.an.Hittite..And.as.for.thy.nativity,.in.the.day.thou.wast.
born.thy.navel.was.not.cut,.neither.wast.thou.washed.in.water.to.supple.thee;.thou.wast.not.
salted.at.all,.nor.swaddled.at.all..
.
Ezekiel.16:3\4.
.
Verse.3.in.Song.of.Solomon.7.will.make.any.person.programmed.with.cult.teaching.cringe..They.
wish.this.verse.was.not.in.their.Bibles,.and.consider.it.to.be.the.lowest.filth:.
.
"Your.two.breasts.are.like.two.fawns,.twins.of.a.gazelle.".\.(Song.of.Solomon.7:3).
.
But.remember,.God.said.the.very.same.thing.about.His.Bride.in.Ezekiel:.

The.comparison.could.go.on.and.on..Each.verse.in.the.entire.book.of.the.Song.of.Solomon.has.
many. ties. to. scriptures. in. the. books. attached. behind. it. in. your. leather. bindings.. Each. verse.

.

.
But.no.matter.how.far.we.wander.away.from.God.in.the.cult.of.a.man,.God.still.loves.us.and.

bondservant...From.the.day.God.gave.Moses.the.Mosaic.Law.to.the.days.of.Christ,.Gods.children.
were.put.into.service.for.the.greater.good.of.mankind,.workers.of.the.Law.in.the.fields.of.Gods.
harvest..
.
But.in.the.royal.family.order,.the.heir.to.the.kingdom.does.not.labor.with.the.servants.of.the.
field...While.the.bondservants.worked.long.hot.days.under.the.hot,.blazing.sun,.the.heirs.to.the.
kingdom.enjoyed.the.fruits.of.their.labor...They.were.heirs,.not.bondservants..
.
In.the.verses.right.before.Galatians.4,.the.last.few.verses.of.Galatians.3,.Paul.tells.us.that.through.
our.faith.in.Jesus.Christ,.we.have.been.made.heirs.to.the.promise.of.Abraham...Though.we.were.
not.Jewish,.we.are.heirs.to.the.Kingdom.through.Christ...There.is.neither.Jew.nor.Greek,.bond,.
nor.free,.male.nor.female;.we.are.all.one.body.in.Christ.Jesus..
.
But.as.a.child,.heirs.are.not.much.different.than.the.servants,.even.though.he.is.lord.of.all...Paul.
says. that. he. is. under. tutors. and. governors. until. the. time. is. appointed. by. his. father. for. his.
inheritance.to.be.fulfilled...The.child.is.governed.by.law,.rules.in.place.by.his.earthly.father..
.
Paul.compares.this.to.the.evolution.of.mankind.from.Law.into.Grace...He.compares.the.time.of.
Law.to.that.of.the.children.in.his.example...That.bondage.continued.until.the.fullness.of.time.
came,.when.God.sent.forth.his.Son,.made.of.a.woman,.made.under.Law,.to.redeem.them.that.
were.under.the.Law,.that.we.might.receive.the.adoption.of.sons..
.
Verse.7.says.that.we.are.no.longer.servants,.but.sons...And.if.we.are.sons,.then.we.are.heirs.to.
the.Kingdom.from.the.Father.through.Christ..
.
But.the.cult.will.tell.you.the.opposite...
.
By.nature,.a.cult.comes.to.place.you.under.bondage...Weights.are.added.to.your.shoulders,.things.
you.must.do.in.order.to.make.yourselves.feel.more.righteous.to.yourself.and.others.around.you...
Those.within.the.walls.of.your.church.must.seem.more.holy.than.those.outside.the.walls..
otherwise,.you.would.never.submit.yourselves.to.become.bondservants.to.a.misguided.leader..
.
Branham.taught.that.when.Christ.came.to.fulfill.the.law,.that.meant.that.Christ.came.to.lift.it.
into.greater.power...There.are.cult.churches.that.refuse.baptism.for.the.poor.child.with.no.father.
because.of.this.one.heretical.statement:.

.
This.sermon.had.a.hidden.agenda,.and.that.hidden.agenda.was.to.sever.the.Body.of.Christ...That.

this.sermon,.Seed.Is.Not.Heir.With.The.Shuck..
.
..
.
Rather.than.promote.the.words.of.Paul.as.they.were.intended,.his.entire.sermon.was.centered.
on.only.five.verses.in.that.chapter:.

.
Now,.when.reading.just.a.potion.of.scripture.without.reading.the.entire.chapter,.his.sermons.
sounds.scriptural...Why.not?..It.did.come.FROM.scripture?..And.that.scripture.said.to.separate.
ourselves.from.the.bondswoman,.because.we.are.heirs,.not.bondservants!.
.
And.considering.the.other.verses.in.the.chapter,.these.verses.are.a.good.summary...We.are.NOT.
servants.to.the.Law,.the.body.of.people.showing.how.our.works\righteous.faith.could.never.save.
us. from. sin. and. death.. . We. are. not. the. ones. that. are. showing. example. after. example. in. the.
scriptures.where.we.constantly.turned.towards.idolatry.and.reaped.punishment.for.our.sin...
.
We.are.not.the.ones.condemned.to.death.for.our.failure.to.uphold.the.Mosaic.Law..
.
The.bondservants.were...The.Children.of.Israel.were...They.are.the.ones.condemned.to.die...They.
are.the.ones.who.lived.under.the.bondage.of.the.Law.until.Christ.came.to.fulfill.the.Law.and.
redeem.them.from.their.sins.and.save.them.from.eternal.separation.from.God..
.
Christ.DID.come.to.magnify.the.Law...He.put.it.under.examination,.under.a.magnifying.glass.for.
all.to.see.how.the.Law.had.failed...Paul.called.this.Law.obsolete...
.
Throughout.the.Old.Testament,.there.was.a.seed.and.a.shuck...Abrahams.earthly.seed.was.
the.bloodline.that.produced.the.Christ.child,.and.could.be.traced.all.the.way.back.through.the.
Children.of.Israel...
.
And. God. called. Israel. to. be. a. separated. people.. . The. Pagan. nations. served. idols,. offered.
themselves.to.the.false.gods,.and.were.creating.a.situation.that.would.have.resulted.in.another.
Great. Flood. to. wipe. them. from. the. face. of. the. earth.. . They. were. the. shuck. to. Abrahams.
seed..
.
And.if.we.follow.Branhams.Serpent.Seed.doctrine.that.originated.from.Jewish.mysticism,.we.
can.easily.come.to.the.same.conclusion...The.earthly.bloodline.from.the.Jews.to.Christ.was.kept.
pure.from.the.pagan.Gentiles...The.Jews.examined.countless.genealogies.under.this.false.religion.
we.now.know.as.Kabbalah....They.examined.who.was.to.be.considered.holy.and.who.would.
never.make.the.little.bride.because.of.their.family.histories..
.
But. this. seed. and. shuck. doctrine,. under. the. New. Covenant. of. Grace,. is. contrary. to. Pauls.
message.to.the.early.Church..
.
nor.to.devote.themselves.to.myths.and.endless.genealogies,.which.promote.speculations.rather.

difference.between.good.and.evil,.they.fell.from.Grace...
.
Evil.grew.and.dominated...Mankind.had.knowledge.of.both.good.and.evil,.but.did.not.know.how.
to.live.a.way.that.was.righteous...The.entire.earth,.save.Noah.and.his.family,.were.so.filled.with.

.

a.bondservant...He.fulfilled.not.only.His.bond,.but.also.the.bonds.required.by.each.and.every.one.

Profanity$
.
Profanity,. as. a. language. of. shocking. filth,. is. a. relatively. new. and. culturally. motivated. idea...
Depending.upon.the.history.of.the.culture.you.have.been.born.into,.and.the.level.of.use.for.these.
vulgar. phrases. or. words,. you. will. quickly. find. that. the. common. language. from. other.
nationalities.can.be.quite.offensive..
.
I.never.will.forget.when.Seek.Ye.The.Truth.started,.and.South.Africa.started.taking.notice...Several.
Christian. brothers. in. the. cult. started. to. profanely. object. to. my. pointing. out. the. failed.
prophecies.of.William.Branham.through.the.use.of.four.letter.words.that.are.very.offensive.in.
my.culture...But.having.spent.the.last.year.and.a.half.discussing.these.fictional.life.stories.and.
failed. prophecies. with. many. other. nations,. Im. quickly. learning. that. our. view. of. language. is.
tainted.by.the.way.our.society.has.been.molded.through.time..
.
As.a.whole,.mankind.evolved.from.a.very.primitive.race,.what.we.would.call.filthy...But.until.
recently,.there.was.no.need.for.profanity.at.all..and.so.it.was.relatively.non\existent...When.one.
man.became.angry.with.another,.he.simply.drew.his.sword...
.
Many.of.the.words.that.cause.the.most.shock.to.our.senses.are.describing.actions.or.results.of.
actions.that.we.find.offensive.in.this.day.and.age...These.words.have.a.much.faster.success.in.
verbally.slapping.the.face.of.another.person.than.simply.long,.drawn.out.insulting..
.
The.result.of.this.socially\motivated.belief.that.some.words.are.worse.than.others.is.that.readers,.
especially.younger.readers,.are.shocked.when.they.read.their.Bibles...We.have.been.trained.to.
focus. on. the. word. rather. than. the. intent. behind. the. word,. and. many. of. the. words. we. call.
profane.or.words.and.phrases.with.similar.meanings.are.found.throughout.the.Bible...Especially.
if.you.read.the.books.of.the.prophets...
.
Language.is.very.powerful...John.1:1.says.that.In.the.beginning.was.the.Word,.and.the.Word.was.
with.God,.and.the.Word.WAS.God...The.most.powerful.language.of.all.is.found.in.our.Bibles,.the.
Word.of.God..
.
When.Israel.broke.the.Ten.Commandments.and.placed.themselves.under.Law.after.the.wrath.of.
God.was.kindled.against.them,.God.continually.found.his.Children.being.influenced.into.serving.
other.Gods...This.made.God.angry,.and.invoked.His.correction..
.
But.we.find.that.before.correction.came,.God.used.His.prophets.as.His.own.mouthpiece.to.quickly.
condemn.the.Children.of.Israel.for.their.idolatry.and.warn.them.of.the.coming.destruction.if.they.
did.not.turn.back.to.Him..
.
God.did.not.come.with.a.physical.sword,.and.did.not.physically.slap.the.faces...Yet.he.needed.to.
have. abrasive. language,. words. that. both. insulted. the. actions. of. the. Children. of. Israel. and.

condemned.them.from.their.idolatry...Many.times,.God.spoke.through.the.prophets.in.ways.that.
we.would.never.speak.to.another.person.in.the.culture.of.today..
.
When.the.children.of.Israel.had.turned.to.idolatry,.and.Samaria.had.fallen.with.her,.God.sent.
Ezekiel. to. condemn. these. two. nations.. . He. called. them. prostitutes,. but. used. very. shocking.
language.to.compare.them.to.prostitutes.who.became.obsessed.with.their.profession..
.
Jerusalem.was.the.worst.of.the.two...God.said.that.she.was.more.depraved.than.her.sister,.and.
then.said.this:.
.
There.she.lusted.after.her.lovers,.whose.genitals.were.like.those.of.donkeys.and.whose.emission.
was.like.that.of.horses........

Can.you.imagine.the.reaction.in.Sunday.school.when.bible.verse.memorization.time.came,.if.little.
Johnny.were.to.memorize.this.verse.and.read.it.to.the.class?..It.would.be.sheer.horror.in.the.eyes.
of.the.Sunday.school.teacher,.and.the.parents.would.be.mortified.when.they.found.out!..His.
mouth.would.be.washed.out.with.soap!.
.
But.this.is.what.God.said.about.Jerusalem!..He.was.angry.with.them.because.they.had.allowed.
themselves.to.fall.back.into.idolatry!.

do.this.through.Ezekiel?.
.
Ephesians.4:29.says,.Let.no.corrupting.talk.come.out.of.your.mouths,.but.only.such.as.is.good.
for.building.up,.as.fits.the.occasion,.that.it.may.give.grace.to.those.who.hear..
.
..
.
And.Paul.is.saying.exactly.what.we.think.and.have.been.taught...Literally.translated.from.the.
original.Greek.words,.broken.down.into.their.meanings,.the.translation.is:.Any.word.bad.out.of.
the.mouth.of.you.not.let.go.forth.but.if.any.good.for.building.up.of.the.need.that.it.might.give.
grace.to.them.that.hear..
.
But. there. are. two. very. important. things. to. consider. here.. . Profanity,. as. we. know. it. today,. is.
something.that.has.for.the.most.part.evolved.over.the.last.few.hundred.years...And.ironically,.
the.English.speaking.nations.are.the.ones.most.sensitive.to.the.words..an.open.conversation.
with.a.German.or.a.Russian.would.lead.to.insult..
.
And.the.most.important.part.of.what.Paul.says.here.is.that.we.must.build.one.another.up...

When. God. used. language. that. we. would. call. profane. with. the. Children. of. Israel,. He. had. a.
purpose.of.building.up...Jerusalem.had.fallen...Even.if.profanity.existed.in.the.primitive.race.of.
people,. these. words. could. never. be. worse. than. bowing. down. to. idols. and. sacrificing. your.
children.to.them..
.
The. newer. translations. include. the. phrase. as. fits. the. occasion,. which. truly. matches. the.
underlying.meaning.of.Pauls.statement...When.we.go.back.to.the.original.Greek,.one.portion.of.
the.sentence.is.this:..BUT.IF.ANY,.good.for.building.up.of.the.need..
.
God. had. need. of. using. language. that. insulted. Israel. for. their. idolatry.. . They. were. words. of.
condemnation...They.were.words.that.pierced.the.hearts,.the.verbal.slap.in.the.face..
.
And. as. we. know,. God. will. do. nothing. to. set. an. example. for. us. that. he. does. not. want. for. us.
Himself...If.we.are.against.something.that.we.know.God.does.not.like,.and.we.can.prove.His.
distaste.for.it.by.Scripture,.we.should.be.strongly.against.it..
.
God.hates.false.prophets...He.detests.them...They.are.compared.to.sorcerers,.and.diviners,.which.
were.stoned.for.their.pure,.blatant.evil...False.prophets.pretend.to.be.seers.of.the.future,.when.
most.of.the.prophecy.given.by.Gods.prophets.were.voices.speaking.to.the.present...Just.like.the.
example.in.Ezekiel,.God.spoke.through.Ezekiel.to.condemn.what.had.happened.in.the.past.and.
in.the.present...
.
Had.Ezekiel.went.around.prophesying.of.his.next.hunting.trips.prey,.or.cities.sinking.before.
some.young.lad.became.an.old.man..which.never.sank..then.the.Children.of.Israel.rightfully.
would.have.stoned.Ezekiel...Even.if.Ezekiel.would.have.had.one.prophecy.that.seemed.logically.
to.have.been.fulfilled,.if.he.had.one.single.prophecy.that.failed.there.would.not.have.been.a.book.
of.Ezekiel.in.the.Bible...God.detests.false.prophets..
.
So.some.of.you.who.are.angry.that.this.false.prophet.has.stolen.much.of.your.life.from.you.with.
his.imaginary.stories.about.his.life,.twisted.scriptures,.and.false.prophecy,.and.are.thinking.after.
reading.this..William.Branham.is.a.$*%#*#@...
.
But.lets.remember.the.words.of.Paul,.especially.that.in.the.translations.that.match.Pauls.intent...
As.fits.the.occasion...
.
Remember,.the.motive.behind.Pauls.statement.was.to.uplift..not.to.push.down...There.are.
people,. good. people,. who. have. known. nothing. else. in. their. entire. lives. except. the. false.
prophecies.by.this.lying.man...We.are.not.prophets.from.God,.and.God.is.not.speaking.through.
us.to.proclaim.to.others.that.Branham.is.a.bastard.child.raised.by.the.Son.of.Perdition,.or.calling.
him.a.prostitute.as.He.did.Jerusalem.through.the.mouth.of.Ezekiel...
.
Luke.16:16.says.that.The.Law.and.the.Prophets.were.until.John;.since.then.the.good.news.of.the.
kingdom.of.God.is.preached,.and.everyone.forces.his.way.into.it..

..
.
This.verse.from.Luke.matches.what.Paul.is.saying.here...There.are.not.prophets.today,.speaking.
harsh. and. abrasive. language. against. fallen. nations.. . Luke. says. that. those. types. of. prophets.
stopped.with.John.the.Baptist...That.was.under.Law,.which.Paul.called.obsolete..
.
We.are.now.under.Grace...We.must.speak.what.fits.the.occasion,.with.the.intent.of.building.up...
.
Sometimes,.building.up.means.pointing.the.way.to.deliverance...While.entering.into.a.heated.
conversation.with.one.person.trapped.in.the.cult,.there.may.be.hundreds.silently.watching.your.
reaction...The.Grace.you.show.a.person,.the.Love.that.you.show.for.their.blinded.eyes.is.more.
powerful.than.any.words.or.phrases.that.you.can.use.to.shock.and.awe...In.this.case,.Grace.is.
far.more.powerful.than.profanity..
.
And.remember,.profanity,.as.we.know.it,.is.relatively.new...It.is.a.way.of.quickly.drawing.objection.
through.insult,.and.the.words.of.insult.differ.from.culture.to.culture...The.words.you.use.as.your.
shocking.power.words.in.America.likely.have.little.effect.in.Russia...A.battle.of.offensive.words.
with.Germany.is.a.losing.battle..the.language.we.consider.abrasive.is.commonplace..
.
Those.reading.as.a.cult.follower.begins.to.insult.you.will.quickly.realize.that.the.insults.they.throw.
are.actually.profanity..
.
I.can.remember.growing.up,.watching.family.members.insult.customer.service.representatives.
over.the.phone...I.actually.remember.hearing.the.other.side.of.the.conversation.with.a.crying.
voice...Many.times,.this.was.over.silly,.nonsensical.things..most.of.the.time.so.that.this.family.
member.could.save.a.dollar.or.two.off.of.a.bill..
.
For.the.price.of.that.dollar,.the.emotions.of.this.customer.service.representative.were.trampled.
over. like. a. wild. bull. running. through. a. field. of. wine. glasses.. . The. love. of. money. had. taken.
precedence.over.the.love.of.fellow.man..
.
Not.a.single.word.was.used.that.we.would.call.profanity...Yet,.the.intent.behind.the.words.was.
countless.numbers.worse...The.words.were.cutting,.digging.into.the.heart.of.the.listener.to.the.
point.of.tears...
.
Paul.said,.BUT.IF.ANY,.good.for.building.up.of.the.need...
.
..
.
There.was.no.need...This.was.not.building.up...This.was.the.opposite...This.was.breaking.down..
.
God.did.not.call.us.to.break.down.our.brothers.and.sisters...He.did.not.place.them.before.us.as.
opponents...God.has.given.us.an.opportunity,.one.that.is.greater.than.many.people.will.ever.have.
in.their.entire.lives..

God.has.given.us.an.experience...We.have.lived.through.a.cult...We.have.deprogrammed.our.

The.Reverend.Henry.Branham.concluded.his.week\long.Revival.meeting.under.the.auspices.of.
the.local.Pentecostal.church.with.a.five\hour.session..

More.than.2500.persons.jammed.the.Vandalia.high.school.gym.and.hundreds.of.others.stood.

He.had.them.hold.their.hands.over.their.hearts.while.he.went.through.the.ritual..He.asked.that.
those.who.did.not.have.faith.should.not.participate.since.he.would.not.have.time.to.convince.
them..
.
He.treated.the.stretcher.cases.individually..Toward.the.end.of.the.long.meeting.which.began.at.
6:30.P.M..he.began.to.sway.as.he.prayed.over.the.afflicted.persons..Finally.he.nearly.collapsed.
and.was.taken.out.of.the.gym..

Among.those.who.claim.to.be.cured.at.the.meeting.was.Ronnie.Nichols,.seven\year\old.blind.boy.
of. Vandalia.. His. father. took. him. before. Branham.. While. the. pianist. played. soft. music. on. the.

.
The.town.was.jammed.with.invalids.on.crutches.in.wheel.chairs.and.on.stretchers..A.score.of.
ambulances. that. had. been. driven. across. the. country. were. parked. at. downtown. curbs..
Passengers. who. couldn't. find. accommodations. slept. in. the. ambulances,. because,. Vandalia's.

Branham,.formerly.a.game.warden.of.Jeffersonville,.IN,.came.here.a.week.ago.under.the.auspices.
of.members.of.the.local.Pentecostal.Church..He.said.that.he.had."cured.hundreds.of.persons".

.
He.looked.at.the.long.line.of.persons.waiting.for.him.to."treat".them..Some.slept.in.the.line,.so.
they.wouldn't.lose.their.places..A.number.of.them.said.they.had.heard.about.Branham's."fine.

Branham,.a.slightly.built.man,.said.he.went.to.work.after.he.finished.the.eighth.grade..

Narcissism$$
.
One.of.my.favorite.cartoons.of.all.time.is.the.Disney.and.Pixar.movie.The.Incredibles...It.takes.
an.element.from.a.very.real.psychological.profile.of.a.corrupt.and.evil.mind,.and.turns.it.into.one.
of.the.most.interesting.super.villain.themes.used.in.comic.and.animation.super.heroes..
.
A.person.suffering.from.Narcissistic.Personality.Disorder.must.have.a.villain.to.fight...Without.the.
opposing.side.for.them.to.stand.against,.they.become.restless.and.uneasy...Their.feeling.of.self\
worth.and.security.is.solely.based.upon.how.well.they.can.fight.against.what.they.see.is.their.life.
battle..
.
In.The.Incredibles,.the.super.villain.actually.lets.the.hero.of.the.story.grow.stronger...He.is.allowed.
to.become.close.and.thrive,.just.simply.so.the.villain.can.fight.his.battle..
.
The.word.Narcissism.originates.from.the.mythical.Narcissus.in.Greek.mythology...Narcissus.
fell.in.love.with.his.own.image,.reflected.in.a.pool.of.water,.and.was.unable.to.leave.the.view...
His.love.for.his.own.image.was.the.cause.of.his.demise..
.
With.Narcissistic.Personality.disorder,.the.description.from.the.myth.is.the.exact.representation.
of.the.mental.suffering.that.plagues.the.patient...Frequently,.when.a.simple.man.rises.to.great.
popularity,.and.their.once.simple.life.is.seen.as.an.idol.before.others,.symptoms.of.this.disorder.
start.to.appear...Thats.when.the.suffering.begins..
.
People. suffering. from. this. disorder. have. an. obvious. focus. on. themselves. as. the. condition.
worsens...They.struggle.to.find.comfort.or.satisfaction.in.the.environment.that.surrounds.them,.
and. it. begins. to. seem. evil. to. their. distorted. view.. . Because. of. this,. they. have. difficulty. with.
empathy,.and.have.hypersensitive.reactions.to.any.sort.of.discussion.that.draws.close.to.debate..
.
Because.this.condition.is.a.direct.result.to.pride,.their.vulnerability.is.to.shame.rather.than.guilt...
They.try.to.feed.that.inward.pride,.pretending.to.be.much.more.than.they.really.are.in.all.aspects.
of. life.. . They. detest. those. who. do. not. admire. them,. brag. on. themselves. very. subtly. but.
persistently,.and.exaggerate.their.achievements...
.
But.the.worst.and.most.damaging.aspect.of.a.Narcissist.is.the.fact.that.they.are.unable.to.view.
the.world.from.the.perspective.of.other.people...Their.view.of.the.world.is.the.only.accurate.view.
.otherwise,.they.give.in.to.demoting.their.own.opinion.and.fight.against.their.own.pride..
.
Sadly,.there.is.very.little.treatment.and.no.cure..
.
In.1925,.F..Scott.Fitzgerald.published.a.book.entitled.The.Great.Gatsby,.about.a.fictional.person.
who.also.struggled.with.this.plague.of.the.mind...Gatsby.is.described.as."an.archetype.of.self\
made. American. men. seeking. to. join. high. society,". has. been. described. as. a. "pathological.
narcissist". for. whom. the. "ego\ideal". has. become. "inflated. and. destructive". and. whose.

www.seekyethetruth.com.

271.

"grandiose.lies,.poor.sense.of.reality,.sense.of.entitlement,.and.exploitive.treatment.of.others".
conspire.toward.his.own.demise..
.
When.we.examine.the.many.fictional.stories.William.Branham.promoted,.subtle.yet.persistent.
lies.that.lifted.himself.in.stature.before.his.fellow.man,.we.really.find.another.Gatsby...And.it.was.
destructive.to.not.only.his.own.personality,.but.his.mental.health.as.well...Branham.claims.that.
a.mental.condition.plagued.him.every.seven.years.throughout.his.life,.and.it.is.very.evident.
from.the.symptoms.of.this.condition.that.his.recorded.life.matches.most.if.not.all.of.them..
.
But.there.is.a.huge.problem.here..
.
By. nature. of. a. cult,. many. men. pattern. their. lives. after. the. leader.. . We. see. it. in. each. of. the.
religious. groups. we. can. now. label. as. a. cult,. and. the. Branham. denomination. of. faith. is. no.
different...The.leader.becomes.an.icon.of.faith,.and.men.try.to.mold.themselves.into.that.image..
.
Having.been.raised.under.the.open.discussions.of.several.men.who.either.knew.William.Branham.
or.who.were.involved.in.his.ministry,.studying.Narcissism.is.a.real.eye\opener...Many.men.I.knew,.
even.family.members,.are.text\book.cases..having.every.single.symptom.in.each.of.the.studies.
that.I.have.read.on.the.disorder..
.
And.it.is.very.damaging.to.the.family.unit...Narcissism.breeds.narcissism,.because.most.cases.are.
a. direct. result. of. having. a. childhood. deprived. of. the. normal. love. and. affection. that. children.
require. for. growth. and. mental. health.. . When. the. father. of. the. family. unit. suffers. from. this.
disease,.his.children.are.very.likely.to.fight.it.themselves..
.
From.a.religious.standpoint,.and.as.with.any.disease,.it.is.a.result.of.sin...Even.the.common.cold.
is.a.result.of.sin,.something.we.must.now.face.because.Adam.disobeyed.God...
.
But.Narcissism.is.a.direct.result.of.the.sin.in.the.life.of.the.patient..not.a.long\term.historical.sin.
from.which.they.had.no.involvement...While.the.patient.cannot.help.himself.or.herself,.hunger.
to.feed.their.pride.turns.into.an.obsession,.and.that.obsession.leads.to.the.destruction.of.their.
own.minds..
.
And.they.must.have.a.villain..
.
In.all.cases.of.this.affliction,.it.is.a.cause.for.great.sympathy...Even.though.this.affliction.causes.
them. to. become. aggressively. violent. in. conversation. or. in. deed,. they. really. cannot. help.
themselves...Their.disease.is.similar.to.the.dependency.on.insulin.in.diabetes..and.the.villain.is.
their.insulin...Whatever.the.villain.may.be,.from.political.figures,.groups.of.people,.or.even.close.
friends..the.person.suffering.will.aggressively.combat.the.enemy..
.
The.problem.here.is.that.with.a.spiritual.leader,.their.villain.becomes.the.villain.of.every.single.
one.of.their.followers..

The.symptoms.in.William.Branham.were.not.always.so.evident...As.in.the.textbook.cases,.the.lies.
were.very.subtle..even.believable...Who.would.question.his.own.birthdate,.or.his.story.about.

Pentecostal.pastor.after.he.claimed.to.have.joined.the.Pentecostal.call.later.in.life?..Who.would.
guess.that.his.stories.of.a.childhood.hunting.and.trapping.to.feed.his.poor.family.in.the.hills.of.
Kentucky.would.be.fictional.stories?.
.
And. the. early. ministry. had. no. super. villain.. . The. denominational. churches. that. would. later.
become. Branhams. villain. were. all. in. one. accord. as. his. ministry. grew. in. popularity.. . All. were.
welcome,. all. started. to. become. very. close. to. this. rising. cult. leader.. . Like. the. infamous.
Syndrome.of.the.Incredibles,.the.enemy.was.drawn.close.and.given.strength.through.uplifting.
sermons.designed.to.build.the.faith...When.they.drew.him.out.of.their.circles,.Branham.drew.
a.bigger.circle.to.draw.them.back.in..
.
In.the.Christian.life.filled.with.Grace,.this.is.really.the.lifestyle.we.should.aspire.to.have...We.fight.
small. battles,. but. God. has. already. fought. the. super. villain. for. us. . Satan. was. defeated. when.
Christ.died.on.the.cross.for.our.sins...He.has.no.power;.his.power.has.been.stripped.from.him.by.
just.three.nails..
.
But.a.narcissist.personality.cannot.rest.peacefully.with.this.type.of.Christian.life..especially.when.
they.make.their.minds.focus.on.Satan.himself.for.their.super.villain...That.villain.must.be.given.
power,.and.the.work.that.was.done.on.the.cross.must.be.lessoned.in.power.and.result..
.
This.type.of.personality.must.de\throne.Christ..
.
In.the.sermons.leading.up.to.the.dethroning,.we.find.subtle.changes.in.the.nature.of.Christ..
hints.that.Christ.was.just.an.angel.(Michael),.or.the.focus.on.how.Christ.was.a.prophet.rather.
than.the.focus.on.His.Deity...Branham.would.emphasize.the.words.of.Christ,.I.can.do.nothing.
except.the.Father.first.shows.me,.and.start.teaching.that.these.words.meant.that.Christ.had.to.
see.a.vision.like.the.Old.Testament.prophets.once.did..
.
But.ultimately,.in.a.sermon.called.Satans.Eden,.William.Branham.dethroned.Christ...Christ.was.
no.longer.in.control.of.this.world,.He.no.longer.sat.on.the.Throne.in.the.right\hand.of.authority.
from.God...The.heavens.still.belonged.to.Christ,.but.under.this.delusion,.this.world.and.all.that.is.
in.it.belonged.to.Satan..not.God..
.
Deuteronomy. 10:14. Praises. God. for. his. ownership:. Behold,. to. the. LORD. your. God. belong.
heaven.and.the.heaven.of.heavens,.the.earth.with.all.that.is.in.it..
.
Revelation.13:12.tells.us.that.God.GAVE.the.beast.authority.to.deceive..it.was.not.the.Beasts.to.
give.away.or.claim.for.his.own...We.are.all.under.a.test.to.see.if.we.are.faithful.to.God,.or.easily.
deceived.by.Satan..

Eternal.Son.of.God.sitting.on.the.Throne.in.all.power.and.authority...Jude.says.this:.

To.the.only.God.our.Savior.be.glory,.majesty,.power.and.authority,.through.Jesus.Christ.our.Lord,.
before.all.ages,.now.and.forevermore!.Amen..
.
Jude.1:25.
.
If.we.examine.the.sermons.of.William.Branham.chronologically,.and.identify.his.super.villains,.
and.compare.those.doctrines.with.scripture,.we.can.easily.see.the.delusion...We.can.identify.the.
twisting.of.scripture.in.order.to.lesson.the.power.of.the.true.hero,.Jesus.Christ,.and.increase.the.
power.of.the.evil.villain,.Satan..
.
When.the.villain.was.women,.a.doctrine.rose.from.the.depths.of.hell.through.Branham.that.Satan.
was.her.designer...While.the.Bible.says,.male.and.female.created.He.them,.Branham.severed.
the.female.part.of.the.original.creation.and.handed.it.over.to.Satan.on.a.silver.platter...Satan.was.
now.given.power.to.create..instead.of.being.a.lowly.angel..
.
When.the.villain.was.married.to.Ahab..the.nickname.for.President.Kennedy.as.Branham.went.
on.a.parade.calling.Mrs..Kennedy.Jezebel,.Branham.claimed.that.he.needed.to.storm.the.gates.
of.the.White.House.Lawn.to.condemn.his.Ahab.for.letting.the.powerful.super.villain.Jezebel.
Kennedy.into.the.White.House.as.First.Lady..
.
Listen.to.what.Branham.is.saying.here!..I.can.just.feel.the.pain.and.suffering.that.is.plaguing.his.
mind.as.he.lifts.this.super.villain.Jezebel.Kennedy.into.power..

and.told.them.all.the.things,.and.God.worked.with.him..But.his.final.message.was.attacked.on.
the.White.House..When.John.came,.his.final.message.was.attacked.on.the.White.House.of.that.
day.. Elijah's. final. message,. when. he. walked. down. that. road. that. morning. after. being. in. the.

Starting.in.the.very.first.sermon.in.his.ministry,.and.continuing.all.throughout.his.ministry.until.
just.thirty.days.prior.to.his.death,.William.Branham.used.an.insulting.phrase.that.many.in.the.cult.
will.remember...When.throwing.insults.at.those.who.did.not.believe.in.the.same.way.he.did,.
Branham.would.say.that.they.know.no.more.about.it.than.a.Hottentot.knows.about.an.Egyptian.
night..
.
Very.few.have.stopped.to.think.about.this.phrase.and.its.meaning...Some.cult.followers.will.use.
this. as. they. insult. other. people,. but. have. no. idea. where. it. came. from.. . Others. listen. to. the.
sermons.hearing.this.phrase,.and.associate.it.with.the.violent.temper.tantrums.Branham.threw.
in.the.elevated.state.of.his.Charismatic\style.screaming..
.
While.Branham.claimed.to.have.been.commissioned.by.an.angel.in.1947,.what.he.claims.is.the.
very.day.that.Israel.became.a.nation,.his.ministry.was.in.full.swing.long.before.that...Many.have.
noticed.the.comments.that.he.made.in.his.sermons,.pointing.out.that.he.had.quite.a.bit.of.cultural.
knowledge. of. far. off. countries. long. before. his. cult. following. noticed. him. start. his. expensive.
hunting.trips..
.
When.you.combine.the.fact.that.his.1945.pamphlet,.I.Was.Not.Disobedient.To.The.Heavenly.
Vision,.describes.a.healing.ministry.that.was.in.full.swing,.with.this.phrase.about.Hottentots,.
we. have. a. mounting. stack. of. evidence. in. favor. of. the. idea. that. William. Branham. was. well.
travelled.during.the.time.he.claimed.to.be.poor.and.almost.destitute..
.
Almost. none. of. the. people. in. America. today. knows. what. a. Hottentot. is.. . But. localize. that.
thought.to.the.hills.of.Kentucky.and.the.small.town.in.Southern.Indiana,.and.we.have.a.0%.ratio.
of.people.who.know.the.phrase.versus.people.who.do.not...This.is.not.a.common.word.in.the.
English.language,.and.is.nonexistent.in.Kentucky\ese..
.
When.European.immigrants.started.to.enter.South.Africa,.a.tribe.called.the.Khoikhoi.was.found.
tending.large.herds.of.cattle.on.the.Southwestern.Cape...They.were.a.nomadic.people,.entering.
South.Africa.from.Botswana.and.slowly.migrating.south.until.they.became.extinct.at.the.early.
turn.of.the.century..
.
This.tribe.of.people.were.despised.by.the.more.advanced.nations.that.entered.South.Africa,.and.
in.derogatory.and.a.racially.insulting.manner,.the.Europeans.started.to.make.fun.of.their.strange.
sounding.language...Over.time,.this.tribe.of.nomads.that.had.settled.in.South.Africa.were.called.
Hottentots,.insulting.them.regarding.the.most.common.three.words.of.their.language:..hot,.
en,.tot..

harsh.laws.were.created.that.were.intended.to.force.the.Khoikhoi.from.their.lands.in.the.Kat.
River.to.works.as.laborers.on.white.farms..
.
But.from.1904.to.1907,.most.of.the.tribe.was.massacred.by.the.German.settlers...During.this.
time,. the. Germans. rose. against. the. Khokhoi. nation. that. was. found. living. in. what. was. then.
German.South.Africa,.and.killed.over.10,000.tribesmen...This.was.over.half.of.the.population.of.
the.tribe...From.there,.the.remaining.few.began.to.integrate.themselves.with.the.South.African.
population,.and.the.tribe.itself.is.all.but.extinct..
.
This.war.with.the.Germans.was.before.William.Branham.was.born..
.
While.this.phrase,.No.more.than.a.Hottentot.knows.about.an.Egyptian.night,.is.an.outright.
insult.to.an.entire.ethnic.group.of.people,.it.had.little.meaning.to.the.people.Branham.used.this.
insult.on.in.his.1947.sermon...They.had.no.idea.this.was.a.racial.slur..
.
But.the.impact.of.the.insult.was.the.same...While.insulting.an.entire.race.of.people,.Branham.
used.the.phrase.to.insult.another.person.who.might.otherwise.have.been.a.potential.convert.to.
Christ...Because.the.targets.of.this.insult.did.not.see.eye\to\eye.with.Branhams.agenda,.Branham.
used.unfamiliar.words.to.call.them.stupid..
.
In.these.rants.and.raves.by.the.cult.leader,.and.after.being.deprogrammed,.it.actually.is.quite.
comical...There.is.a.stage.during.deprogramming.when.this.screaming.sounds.like.Hitler.in.Nazi.
Germany,.but.after.you.are.fully.free.from.the.cult,.it.sounds.strangely.like.Yosemite.Sam.on.the.
Looney.Tunes.cartoon...If.you.take.these.portions.of.the.sermons..especially.the.ones.from.1965.
.and.change.a.few.words.out.with.the.cartoons.Rackin.and.Frackin,.you.end.up.with.a.very.
comical.man.ranting.and.raving.like.a.school.child..
.
But.while.its.funny.to.us.on.the.outside,.it.is.very.damaging.to.those.on.the.inside..
.
Cult. followers. are. programmatically. trained. to. insult. those. who. do. not. ascribe. to. their. belief.
system...The.number.of.grade\school\style.insults.thrown.by.William.Branham.in.these.sermons.
is.staggering..and.behind.most.of.them.is.some.guy.in.the.background.saying,.Praise.the.Lord,.
brother!.
.
If.they.only.understood.what.these.insults.mean,.theyd.instead.get.up,.walk.out,.and.leave!..Each.
insult. Branham. threw. can. be. categorized. into. two. grade\school. insults:. . Youre. stupid,. and.
Youre.scum..
.
Some. have. associated. William. Branhams. ministry. with. that. of. the. Christ. . mostly. because.
Branham.claimed.to.be.specific.verses.in.scripture.that.pointed.to.Christ...But.imagine.if.Jesus.
Christ.came.to.earth.telling.the.broken.hearted.Youre.Stupid!..Youre.scum!.

Our$NEW$Prophet$
.
Since.Seek.Ye.The.Truth.has.started,.and.others.have.taken.notice.that.Branhams.prophesies.
were.fictional.failures,.we.receive.emails.asking.us.this.question:.
.
Since.Branham.was.a.lying.false.prophet,.which.prophet.do.we.follow?.
.
I.received.another.email.last.night,.asking.the.same.question...Those.who.place.value.on.their.
eternal.destination.do.not.idly.sit.by.while.devious.minds.of.the.pastors.and.leaders.cover.up.the.
many.lies.and.failures..they.realize.that.their.soul.is.the.single.most.important.possession.in.this.
life...And.William.Branham.himself.said,.
.
I've.got.to.leave.here..You've.got.to.leave.here..And.if.I.go.as.a.false.prophet,.I'll.lose.my.own.
soul.and.lose.yours.with.me..
.
59\1219.QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS.ON.THE.HOLY.GHOST.
.
So.for.the.many.who.have.been.programmed.to.follow.a.man.instead.of.the.Holy.Spirit,.this.is.a.
very.serious.matter...If.you.are.following.a.man,.and.that.man.leads.you.from.the.pasture.of.the.
Great.Shepherd.into.some.other.pasture,.you.are.walking.on.dangerous.grounds!.
.
This.is.worsened.when.you.truly.believe.that.you.must.follow.a.man.to.your.eternal.destination...
Imagine.the.Children.of.Israel.once.they.learned.that.Moses.was.not.headed.for.the.Promised.
Land...Im.sure.that.the.faith.of.many.was.shaken..even.though.God.Himself.was.leading.them!.
.
So.for.those.who.have.been.falsely.taught.to.follow.a.man.instead.of.our.God,.the.greatest.news.
that.you.will.ever.receive.is.what.I.am.about.to.give.you.now!..We.are.free!.
.
To.any.who.struggle.with.this,.I.recommend.that.you.read.the.book.of.Hebrews,.and.read.it.with.
this.context:.
.
The.Law.and.the.Prophets.were.until.John;.since.then.the.good.news.of.the.kingdom.of.God.is.
preached,.and.everyone.forces.his.way.into.it.".
.
Luke.16:16.
.
The.book.of.Hebrews.starts.out.much.the.same:.
.
"Long.ago,.at.many.times.and.in.many.ways,.God.spoke.to.our.fathers.by.the.prophets,.but.in.
these.last.days.he.has.spoken.to.us.by.his.Son".
.
The.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ.is.all.that.we.need:.the.Good.News.that.Christ.came.to.fulfill.the.Old.
Covenant.and.remove.us.from.the.Law.that.Paul.called."obsolete."..Christ.lived.the.perfect.life,.

fulfilled.the.requirement.of.the.Law,.died.on.the.cross.for.our.sins,.and.rose.again.so.that.we.can.
rise.with.Him...
.
And.Christ.sent.His.Helper,.the.Holy.Spirit.to.be.our.leader.and.our.Guide...No.longer.do.we.listen.
to.God.speaking.through.a.prophet,.and.no.longer.are.we.lead.by.any.man...We.are.now.lead.by.
the.Spirit..
.
False.prophets.have.one.thing.in.common:..they.all.try.to.hide.this.from.you...Many.will.go.so.far.
as.to.deny.the.deity.of.Christ..teaching.you.a.different.Godhead...They.want.you.to.believe.that.
God.is.limited.in.His.power,.and.that.there.is.NO.Holy.Spirit.leading.us...They.want.you.to.believe.
that.God.is.not.in.full.control..
.
Those. in. the. Branham. cult. struggle,. because. Branham. did. exactly. this.. . Taking. the. Jehovahs.
Witness.doctrine.that.Jehovah.of.the.Old.Testament.was.Jesus.of.the.New,.Branham.promoted.
a.modalistic.false.god.that.is.now.sitting.on.the.Throne...Therefore,.a.prophet.is.required..that.
false.god.did.not.send.the.Holy.Spirit.as.the.Bible.said,.that.spirit.from.that.false.god.is.up.
there.on.the.throne!.
.
And. this. world. is. not. under. Gods. control. in. Branhams. distorted. and. twisted. view.. . This. is.
Satans.Eden...Satan.has.been.given.power.by.Branham,.and.the.Holy.Spirit.is.weak..even.
weaker.than.Satan!..Branham.taught.us.to.believe.that.we.could.offend.the.Holy.Spirit,.and.
grieve.the.Holy.Spirit.away.from.us..
.
The.Bible.says,.I.will.NEVER.leave.you,.NOR.forsake.you!.
.
Hebrews.Chapter.3.tells.us.that.we.are.now.entering.God's.rest,.and.listen.to.Who.is.telling.us.
this:.
.
Therefore,.as.the.Holy.Spirit.says,.today,.if.you.hear.his.voice,.do.not.harden.your.hearts.as.in.
the.rebellion,.on.the.day.of.testing.in.the.wilderness,.where.your.fathers.put.me.to.the.test.and.
saw.my.works.for.forty.years..
.
..
.
Paul.is.telling.us.that.if.we.refuse.to.be.led.by.the.Holy.Spirit,.then.we.are.in.rebellion...We.are.
directly.violating.the.instruction.by.God,.putting.something.else.before.God...We.have.fallen.into.
idolatry!.
.
But.Chapter.5.is.where.it.starts.getting.good...We.have.a.NEW.High.Priest...Not.a.high.priest.that.
will. last. until. the. end. of. the. world,. when. some. new. doomsday. prophet. rises. to. proclaim. his.
divine.inspiration.that.1977.is.the.end.of.days.\\.Christ.is.our.new.High.Priest.forever!.
.
You.are.a.priest.forever,.after.the.order.of.Melchizedek..
.

Hebrews.is.the.perfect.answer.to.anyone.who.has.been.trapped.in.the.Branham.religion...The.
similarities. are. phenomenal. . . The. Jews. were. bound. by. Law. and. oppression. from. the. sins.
committed.when.they.broke.the.Ten.Commandments...All.they.ever.knew.their.entire.lives.was.
Law.. . Christ. came. to. remove. that. Law,. but. the. Pharisees. with. their. hardened. hearts. did. not.
understand.. . They. continued. to. lift. up. high. priests. \\. even. after. Christ. died. and. was. given. all.
authority..
.
Paul.says.that.our.authority.is.not.of.men...We.are.to.be.led.by.the.Holy.Spirit..
.
To.the.many.from.around.the.world.that.are.asking.this.question,.Which.new.prophet.should.
we.follow,.my.recommendation.is.this:.
.
Get.back.to.the.Bible.and.read.it.as.a.new.and.exciting.book...Read.it.without.the.tainted.view.of.
men...Read.it.with.inspiration.from.the.Holy.Spirit,.who.will.lead.you.in.all.Truth...Read.it.with.
this.understanding:..All.scriptures.point.to.Christ...
.
The.Old.Testament.gives.Abraham.a.promise.that.his.seed.will.be.a.countless.number,.like.the.
sands.of.the.sea...This.was.a.Covenant.with.Abraham,.and.God.does.not.break.his.Covenants.with.
man...God.knows.the.outcome.before.the.Covenant.is.given,.because.God.IS.at.the.end.as.well.
as.IS.at.the.beginning...
.
False.prophets.of.this.day.will.tell.you.the.exact.opposite...They.all.teach.little.bride.or.select.
group.or.chosen.few.doctrines,.twisting.Old.Testament.scriptures.to.fit.their.agendas...They.
want.you.to.believe.that.their.small.group.in.their.small.corner.of.the.Christian.World.is.the.only.
group. God. cares. about.. . They. deny. the. Gospel. of. Jesus. Christ. to. do. so,. which. makes. their.
doctrines.an.antichrist.doctrine..
.
God's.children.were.fully.living.under.Grace.until.they.broke.the.Ten.Commandments...God,.in.
His.wrath,.placed.them.under.the.Law.as.a.punishment...They.were.children.in.the.true.sense.of.
the.word:.a.people.growing.into.maturity.through.teaching.and.training..
.
The.prophets.in.the.Old.Testament.were.not.leaders...They.were.not.seers.of.the.future,.as.the.
false.prophets.of.this.day.erroneously.teach...They.were.nothing.more.than.Gods.mouthpieces.
during.the.time.of.training.for.Gods.Children...They.spoke,.directly.from.God,.concerning.the.
idolatry.that.the.Children.continuously.wandered.towards...The.sorcerers..the.bad.guys..were.
the.ones.that.used.demonic.spirits.to.peer.into.the.future..
.
Gods.prophets.did.not.visit.the.many.Worlds.Fairs.to.see.the.next.egg.shaped.car.of.the.future,.
or.read.Popular.Mechanics.to.see.the.technology.of.the.future...Their.prophecies.had.nothing.
to.do.with.technology..they.were.speaking.about.Gods.Faithless.Bride.and.the.coming.Messiah.
to.redeem.them..
.
After.Christ.came,.all.scripture.points.back.to.that.day.on.Calvary.when.He.paid.the.penalty.for.
the.Old.Covenant.that.was.broken...There.is.not.a.single.scripture.intended.to.distract.you.from.
www.seekyethetruth.com.

284.

the.Good.News,.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ...Even.the.book.of.Revelation,.the.last.prophetic.book,.
points.to.the.Cross...The.Lamb.was.the.only.One.worthy.to.open.the.seals...We.are.redeemed.by.
the.blood.of.the.Lamb..
.
And.God's.children.are.a.countless.number,.just.as.was.promised.to.Abraham.\\.not.a."little.bride".
that.has.severed.themselves.from.the.rest.of.the.body.of.Christ...God.does.not.break.his.promises,.
remember?..Hes.already.fulfilled.them.before.He.even.gave.the.promise!.
.
We.are.free!..Christ.has.set.us.free!..We.now.worship.Him,.and.proclaim.this.Gospel.to.others!..
And.all.who.believe.that.Christ.did.this.for.us.can.be.saved!..It.is.a.Gift!.
.
Theres.nothing.we.can.do.to.merit.this.Gift...It.was.already.given.to.us.before.the.foundation.of.
the.world!..
.
For.by.grace.you.have.been.saved.through.faith..And.this.is.not.your.own.doing;.it.is.the.Gift.of.
God,.not.a.result.of.works,.so.that.no.one.may.boast..
.
Ephesians.2:8\9.
.
So.the.answer.to.this.question.is.simple...Theres.no.reason.to.follow.a.man...Man.will.fail,.but.
God.will.never.fail..
.
Jesus.promised.to.send.His.Spirit,.not.His.prophet...And.that.Spirit.does.not.lead.us.into.fictional.
stories.about.bright.lights.and.squirrels...God.is.not.leading.us.into.a.funny.cartoon..
.
When.the.Spirit.of.truth.comes,.he.will.guide.you.into.all.the.Truth,.for.he.will.not.speak.on.his.
own.authority,.but.whatever.he.hears.he.will.speak,.and.he.will.declare.to.you.the.things.that.are.
to.come..
.
John.16:13.
.
Think.about.the.One.in.Authority.giving.the.Holy.Spirit.the.words.to.speak!..Telling.us.directly,.in.
our.hearts,.of.the.things.that.are.to.come!..Guiding.us.through.life.into.all.Truth!.

A$Prayer$For$Syria$$
.
As.I.began.to.untangle.my.mind.from.the.cult.of.William.Branham.and.enter.Christianity,.I.quickly.
realized.that.my.life.was.a.living.example.for.other.Christians.of.what.NOT.to.do...Unknowingly,.
and.molded.together.with.like.minds.in.common.beliefs,.we.had.become.the.very.thing.that.Paul.
warned.us.not.to.be..
.
Pride.is.a.sin.that.is.seldom.mentioned.in.the.cult.of.William.Branham,.and.it.is.a.sin.that.is.very.
damaging.to.the.people.around.you...And.while.living.what.the.cult.taught.as.a.humble.life,.
youll.quickly.realize.once.deprogramming.that.we.were.quite.the.opposite...The.Christian.life.is.
far.more.difficult.that.cult.life..
.
My.pastor.gave.a.sermon.on.Sunday.on.the.type.of.Love.God.wants.for.His.Church.as.described.
in.1.Corinthians.13:.
.
Love. is. patient,. love. is. kind.. It. does. not. envy,. it. does. not. boast,. it. is. not. proud.. . It. does. not.
dishonor.others,.it.is.not.self\seeking,.it.is.not.easily.angered,.it.keeps.no.record.of.wrongs...Love.
does. not. delight. in. evil. but. rejoices. with. the. truth.. . . It. always. protects,. always. trusts,. always.
hopes,.always.perseveres..
.
1.Corinthians.13:4\7.
.
And.through.the.course.of.this.sermon,.he.pointed.out.a.striking.observation.that.had.previously.
gone.unnoticed.in.my.understanding.of.scripture...All.of.these.attributes.Paul.mentions.about.
Love.are.not.adjectives.pointing.back.to.the.word.love...These.are.actions.pointing.to.our.
hearts...We.have.to.put.our.love.into.action,.or.we.do.not.truly.have.love.in.our.hearts..
.
If.we.are.living,.breathing.examples.of.Christ,.we.will.be.patient.towards.others,.even.when.they.
disagree...We.will.be.kind.to.others,.even.when.they.are.firmly.against.us...We.will.not.show.envy.
to.another,.which.turns.into.covetousness...But.then,.this.morning,.it.hit.me:..It.does.not.boast,.
it.is.not.proud..
.
I.was.reading.in.1.Timothy.2.about.how.Paul.tells.us.to.pray.for.all.people,.and.my.mind.drifted.
off.to.the.Senate.hearing.yesterday.about.call.to.action.in.Syria.for.the.slaughter.of.innocence...
Paul.does.not.tell.us.to.stand.up.with.picket.signs.of.opposition,.and.plaster.our.Facebook.pages.
with.hundreds.of.cartoons.making.President.Obama.look.like.a.fool.during.this.time.of.decision..
.
I.thought.about.how.wonderful.our.new.church.was,.filled.with.people.concerned.enough.to.pray.
for.those.poor.people.in.a.far.off.and.distant.land..even.though.they.have.no.idea.who.they.are.
or.what.they.believe..
.

286.

Paul.says.we.are.to.be.in.prayer,.offering.prayers.of.intercession.for.all.people,.for.kings.and.all.
who.are.in.high.positions,.that.we.may.lead.a.peaceful.and.quiet.life,.godly.and.dignified.in.every.
way.
.
My.mind.went.back.to.my.cult.life,.and.my.cult.belief.system.that.was.based.around.the.idea.that.
our.cult.leader.could.peer.into.the.future...Once.he.got.the.people.to.believe.that.he.had.this.
crystal.ball.in.his.mind,.then.everything.the.man.said.that.could.be.twisted.into.some.new.idea.
became.prophecy..even.things.that.he.never.intended.to.be...
.
Many.of.the.fear.tactics,.taking.aim.at.political.unrest.of.the.current.events.during.his.ministry.
have.turned.into.prophecy.for.today...When.Russia.was.the.threat,.Branham.warned.to.watch.
Russia,.and.we.now.have.programmed.minds.driven.by.fear.during.every.future.national.conflict.
looking.for.ways.that.Russia.can.become.an.enemy.to.bring.death.and.destruction..
.
Once. Russia. was. no. longer. the. threat,. Branham. preached. against. those. ministers. who. were.
speaking. out. against. Russia. . literally. preaching. against. himself!. . And. with. that,. we. have.
ministers.of.today.doing.the.same..but.they.only.do.it.after.they.are.trapped.into.that.same.fear.
that.Russia.will.bring.impending.doom...During.the.unrest,.they.are.trapped.in.fear..
.
But.where.is.God.in.all.of.this?..Where.are.the.churches.filled.with.people.on.their.knees,.praying.
that.Obama.will.make.the.right.decision?..Where.are.the.churches.who.are.filled.with.people.
mourning.over.the.thousands.of.innocent.children.that.have.been.slain?..
.
Then,.I.thought.about.myself.during.times.like.these.when.I,.too,.was.just.like.them...I.never.once.
offered.prayer.for.the.leader...I.never.thought.one.second.about.what.it.would.be.like.to.watch.
your.small.child.inhale.an.innocent.breath.that.would.rip.his.life.from.his.body...I.never.offered.
prayer.that.our.government.would.make.decisions.that.would.be.pleasing.before.God..
.
Instead,. my. mind. would. focus. on. the. negative.. . I. would. think. about. things. like. Senator. John.
McCain. playing. poker. on. his. iPhone. during. the. senate. hearing,. and. offer. my. thoughts. of.
condemnation.towards.his.lack.of.concern...All.while.I,.myself,.was.showing.no.concern!.
.
Our.minds.were.programmed.to.make.little.things.seem.much.bigger.than.they.were,.and.while.
doing.so,.the.big.things.were.moving.over.our.heads.unnoticed...Our.focus.was.on.our.little.
Bride,.not.Gods.children...We.looked.at.our.small.cult.as.the.chosen.few.rather.than.looking.
at.the.world.as.opportunity.filled.with.potential.converts.to.Christ..
.
What.if.the.entire.nation.fell.to.its.knees.and.begged.God.for.His.Hand.of.mercy?..What.if.God.
chose.to.bring.the.entire.nation.of.Syria.to.faith.in.Jesus.Christ.by.the.actions.of.our.nation?..
.
I.stand.in.repentance.for.my.past...For.a.time,.after.leaving.the.cult,.I.looked.at.the.superficial.
sins.that.plagued.my.mind.during.my.cult.life.as.very.damaging..and.it.was...But.it.was.damaging.
to.myself...How.much.worse.was.my.sin.of.pride,.which.is.damaging.to.those.around.us?.

The.first.half.of.Timothy.tells.us.that.our.prayers.of.intercession.are.not.intended.for.uplifting.
ourselves,.they.are.a.loving.hand.reaching.out.to.others...That.Hand.reaching.through.prayer.is.
far.more.powerful.than.our.own.outstretched.hand..
.
Paul.says.that.God.desires.all.people.to.be.saved...Remember,.Christ.did.not.come.to.save.the.
saved;.He.came.to.save.the.lost..
.
First.of.all,.then,.I.urge.that.supplications,.prayers,.intercessions,.and.thanksgivings.be.made.for.
all.people,.for.kings.and.all.who.are.in.high.positions,.that.we.may.lead.a.peaceful.and.quiet.life,.
godly.and.dignified.in.every.way..This.is.good,.and.it.is.pleasing.in.the.sight.of.God.our.Savior,.
who.desires.all.people.to.be.saved.and.to.come.to.the.knowledge.of.the.truth..For.there.is.one.
God,.and.there.is.one.mediator.between.God.and.men,.the.man.Christ.Jesus,.who.gave.himself.
as.a.ransom.for.all,.which.is.the.testimony.given.at.the.proper.time..For.this.I.was.appointed.a.
preacher.and.an.apostle.(I.am.telling.the.truth,.I.am.not.lying),.a.teacher.of.the.Gentiles.in.faith.
and.truth..
.
1.Timothy.2:1\7.
.
But.again,.something.that.I.never.noticed.before.in.Scripture...This.that.we.read.from.Paul.is.in.a.
letter,.a.letter.sent.to.Timothy...It.was.intended.to.read.from.start.to.finish..not.simply.taking.a.
paragraph.here.or.a.paragraph.there...
.
Paul. is. speaking. about. calling. on. the. Name. of. the. mediator. between. God. and. Man,. the. man.
Christ.Jesus...He.is.telling.us.to.humble.our.pride.and.offer.prayers.on.the.behalf.of.others..
.
And.in.the.rest.of.this.chapter,.he.continues.that.example,.showing.how.we.are.supposed.to.
eliminate.all.traces.of.pride.from.our.lives..
.
Devious.minds.have.twisted.these.things...Branham.followed.the.example.of.others,.and.made.
some.of.these.statements.out.to.be.statements.of.sexual.nature..which.seems.to.be.the.case.
with.many.of.the.twisted.scriptures..
.
But. listen. to. the. words. of. Paul,. telling. us. about. humility.. . Lets. break. it. down,. sentence. by.
sentence:.
.
I. desire. then. that. in. every. place. the. men. should. pray,. lifting. holy. hands. without. anger. or.
quarreling;.
.
Notice. the. word. then,. connecting. this. to. the. first. section. of. the. chapter.. . It. continues. the.
thought.about.praying.the.prayer.of.intercession.for.others..
.
Remember.his.words.in.Corinthians,.Love.is.patient,.love.is.kind?..Paul.is.telling.us.to.put.our.
love.into.action...Do.not.argue,.do.not.show.anger,.show.love.with.hands.of.praise.and.prayers.
of.faith!.

.
Likewise.also.that.women.should.adorn.themselves.in.respectable.apparel,.with.modesty.and.
self\control,.not.with.braided.hair.and.gold.or.pearls.or.costly.attire,.
.
Paul.just.spoke.to.the.men.about.their.pride,.now.he.speaks.to.the.women...That.word.Likewise.
joins.the.two.sentences.together...As.I.speak.to.the.men,.likewise.I.speak.to.the.women..
.
And.notice.while.the.Pentecostal.movement.teaches.modesty.as.covering.skin,.Paul.teaches.
modesty.as.avoiding.pride...He.tells.the.women.not.to.dress.in.gaudy,.costly.attire...He.even.tells.
them.not.to.braid.their.hair,.which.was.a.status.symbol.during.the.time.this.letter.was.written...
.
In.other.words,.do.not.present.yourselves.as.better.than.others.according.to.the.custom.of.the.
world.around.you;.lift.others.up.above.yourself!.
.
He.continues.that.exact.thought.in.the.next.sentence:.
.
but.with.what.is.proper.for.women.who.profess.godlinesswith.good.works..
.
Paul.just.told.the.women.the.very.same.thing.that.he.told.the.men:..Put.your.Love.into.action!.
.
The.rest.of.the.chapter.gives.a.summary.of.the.thought.before.proceeding.into.the.qualifications.
for.pastors...It.maintains.the.same.focus.on.humility...
.
Many.cult.pastors.can.quote.this.passage.by.heart,.but.have.paid.very.little.attention.to.the.words.
preceding...They.teach.this.exactly.as.Paul.has.intended,.word\for\word,.continuing.the.thought.
of.humility.as.it.applies.towards.women:.
.
Let. a. woman. learn. quietly. with. all. submissiveness.. . I. do. not. permit. a. woman. to. teach. or. to.
exercise.authority.over.a.man;.rather,.she.is.to.remain.quiet...For.Adam.was.formed.first,.then.
Eve;.and.Adam.was.not.deceived,.but.the.woman.was.deceived.and.became.a.transgressor...Yet.
she.will.be.saved.through.childbearingif.they.continue.in.faith.and.love.and.holiness,.with.self\
control..
.
But.ask.yourselves.this:..If.they.read.this.passage.correctly,.and.as.was.intended,.why.do.they.
twist.the.passage.before.into.a.sexual.argument.rather.than.pride?..And.why.do.they.ignore.the.
beginning.of.this.chapter?.
.
Cult.members.will.tell.you.that.they.do.not.ignore...They.will.tell.you.that.they.read.this,.agree.

58\0309M..THE.HANDWRITING.ON.THE.WALL.
.
..
.
Looking.back,.this.is.very.easy.to.recognize.as.spiritual.abuse...Branham.was.beating.us.over.the.
head.with.the.things.we.feared.the.most...He.was.creating.villains.that.would.cause.others.to.
cower.down.in.terror..
.
Very.few.people.have.stopped.to.consider.this.spiritual.abuse.for.what.it.really.is:..terrorism...
The.definition.of.terrorism.is.The.systematic.use.of.fear.or.terror,.especially.as.a.means.towards.
coercing.or.compelling.others.into.an.act.or.choice..
.
When. we. think. of. terrorists. today,. we. think. of. men. hijacking. planes. or. kidnapping. innocent.
victims.in.order.to.instill.fear.in.the.hearts.of.nations,.and.we.falsely.think.that.they.are.doing.it.
for.no.reason...But.typically,.these.terrorists.are.very.religious.people.trying.to.convince.others.
into.their.belief.system.through.use.of.fear..just.like.William.Branham.did..
.
But.terrorism.does.not.start.with.the.end.result;.there.is.a.beginning...There.is.a.journey.into.
what.led.the.extremist.into.an.explosion..
.
When.we.think.of.terrorists,.we.also.immediately.think.of.Muslims...Because.of.the.sheer.size.of.
the.terroristic.threats.created,.and.the.massive.number.of.lives.lost.in.their.well.planned.out.and.
thoroughly.executed.plots,.our.media.has.created.a.false.association.that.a.terrorist.starts.big.
and.gets.bigger..
.
But.this.is.not.the.case,.and.unfortunately,.the.number.of.lives.lost.in.the.end.is.not.the.ultimate.
tragedy...
.
These. men. have. agendas,. and. that. agenda. is. not. what. we. see. on. television. or. in. the. news...
Terrorists.have.put.iron.grips.on.their.followers,.and.seek.to.gain.more.followers.through.clutches.
of.fear...
.
They.have.used.religion.as.a.weapon...They.beat.people.over.the.heads.with.snipped.out.verses.
of.the.Koran.to.create.groups.of.people.separated.from.the.mainstream.religion.with.extreme.
viewpoints...Hence.the.name:.extremists..
.
This.threat.programmed.into.the.minds.of.Branhams.followers.was.a.real.and.present.danger...
With.every.major.news.event,.the.cult.mind.would.start.a.chess.game.to.see.how.Russia.could.
strategically.get.involved.to.plan.their.doom..
.
Even.now,.as.I.watch.Russias.reluctance.to.become.involved.in.Syria,.I.feel.those.programmed.
false.prophecies.tugging.at.my.mind,.trying.to.make.me.turn.my.focus.from.the.actual.event.

And. no. doubt. there. will. come. a. time. when. Russia. becomes. an. aggressor. . but. it. will. have.
absolutely.nothing.to.do.with.Branhams.prophecy..
.
Branhams.fear.tactics.about.Russia.got.the.ultimate.edge.over.his.competitors.in.the.Health.
and.Wealth.Gospel.movement...Branham.claimed.that.the.Lord.had.spoken.to.him,.and.told.him.
that.Russia.was.the.one.that.would.spark.the.fuse.for.Armegeddon:.
.
I'll.prove.to.you.that.communism.is.working.straight.in.the.hands.of.Almighty.God.to.destroy.
the.Roman....And.remember,.I.say.this.as.God's.prophet:.The.Russian.empire.will.drop.an.atomic.
bomb.of.some.sort.on.the.Vatican.City.and.destroy.it.in.one.hour..THUS.SAITH.THE.LORD..And.
the.Bible.said.that.God.took.them.cruel\hearted.men.and.put.them.in.His.hands,.and.they.were.
instruments.in.His.hands.to.fulfill.His.will,.and.to.bring.back.to.her.exactly.what.she.had.coming.
to.her..That's.exactly..That's.the.Word..
.
BRANHAM,.54\0513.
.
But.this.word.that.Branham.claimed.to.have.come.directly.from.God.was.long.forgotten.when.
Russia.was.no.longer.the.main.cause.of.fear.for.the.nation...The.word.he.claimed.the.Lord.had.
spoken.was.denied.by.the.new.word.of.the.Lord..
.
"Any.prophecy.don't.stay.with.that.Word....That's.exactly..That's.the.reason.I.say.today;.no.matter.
how.good.it.looks,.how.many.preachers.are.saying.this,.that,.or.the.other,."Communism.is.going.
to.take.the.world.and.throw.it.down.".Don't.you.never.try.to.fight.communism..Fight.Romanism..
For,.that's.THUS.SAITH.THE.LORD..The.Lord.said.Romanism.is.going.to.rule,.not.communism..It's.

to.destroy.Communism...Both.cannot.be.true..

religious. group. that. lifts. the. leader. into. a. higher. spiritual. status. than. themselves,. to. speak.
negative.of.any.part.of.the.leaders.beliefs.is.to.speak.against.his.entire.teaching..
.
Branham. was. active. with. many. other. men,. some. of. which. were. good,. solid,. Bible\based.
preachers...In.the.Voice.of.Healing.magazine.published.by.William.Branham.and.Gordon.Lindsay,.
you. will. find. hundreds. of. men. in. the. faith. healing. movement.. . Branhams. own. publication.
describes.the.many.healings.that.took.place.in.their.ministries..

notice. that. Branhams. title. has. been. changed. on. the. tape. index. to. avoid. conflict. . this. was.

.

truths. that. we. find. in. Gods. Word.. . And. those. truths. were. relayed. to. Branhams. own. small.
following..
.
But.these.sermons,.filled.with.both.truth.and.fiction,.are.a.gift.and.a.curse..
.
Most.followers.refuse.to.draw.a.line.between.the.good.things.William.Branham.taught.and.the.

By.nature,.a.religious.cult.must.deny.this.passage.of.scripture...The.working.of.the.Holy.Spirit.
throughout.the.entire.body.is.denied,.and.all.of.these.functions.that.Paul.mentions.for.the.entire.
Body.of.Christ.is.believed.to.have.been.manifested.in.one.single.human.being:.the.cult.leader..
.
Because. of. this,. they. reject. the. very. thing. that. God. has. given. them. to. grow. and. mature,.
spiritually:..exhortation..

the.other.churches.outside.of.Branham?.
.
and. then. they. combine. that. sentence. with,. where. do. we. see. people. being. healed. or. see.
prophecy?.
.
If.you.mention.exhortation.to.them,.they.look.at.you.with.this.glazed.and.dumbfounded.look.
on.their.faces...Branham.has.trained.them.to.ignore.most.of.the.Spiritual.Gifts.to.the.church,.and.
focus. on. the. things. that. Branham. claimed. to. have. been. given.. . To. them,. exhortation. is. just.
another.word.for.argument..
.
Its.ironic,.because.when.we.look.at.the.definition.of.exhortation,.we.find.exactly.what.the.cult.
followers. are. condemning. when. their. attacks. turn. into. hatred. in. our. discussion. forums.. . The.
definition.of.exhortation.is.to.incite.or.excite.others.through.an.argument.or.advice:.strongly.
urge..
.
And.exhortation.is.a.spiritual.gift!..Cult.followers.actually.deny.themselves.a.gift.from.God.when.
they.program.themselves.to.believe.that.the.cult.leader.is.the.only.human.with.power.to.urge.
them. to. truth.. . In. 1. Thessalonians. 2:12,. the. Apostle. Paul. describes. the. ministry. of. the. early.

News.describing.the.greatest.Gift.that.God.has.given.us,.it.is.offensive..
.
The.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ.is.the.Good.News.that.God.loved.us.so.much.that.He.sent.His.only.Son,.
Jesus.Christ,.to.die.for.our.sins.and.free.us.from.the.Old.Covenant.Law...He.suffered.and.bled.on.

that. is. poked. in. their. leaders. theology. is. a. hole. pierced. through. the. man. himself. . not. the.
doctrine.that.the.man.promoted...When.we.tell.them.that.William.Branham.promoted.the.occult,.

God.is.the.one.that.brings.the.water...God.is.the.one.that.gives.the.growth...It.is.not.our.job.to.

us.become.filled.with.pride..

Our.glory.is.to.be.given.to.God...Everything.we.do,.we.must.do.it.to.show.the.power.of.almighty.

Preparing$Ourselves$For$The$Coming$
.
We.have.received.some.questions.regarding.the.scriptures.describing.the.coming.of.the.Lord,.
and.the.relationship.between.this.event.and.the.Bride.of.Christ...Many.have.been.persuaded.by.
the. doctrine. that. was. introduced. by. John. Darby,. affected. by. the. prophecy. from. the. "mystic.
woman".Jane.Leade,.regarding.the.rapture,.and.the."little.bride".theology.that.claims.the."small.
elect".are.taken.before.the.tribulation..
.
This.is.a.very.interesting.study,.and.one.that.we.should.all.participate.in...We.send.our.children.
to.schools.to.study.the.things.of.this.world,.but.many.times.refuse.to.study.the.things.that.are.
pertaining.to.the.World.to.come..
.
And.be.aware.that.there.are.many,.many.other.verses.describing.the.Kingdom.of.Heaven...Just.
when.you.think.that.you.have.a.clear.direction.from.the.Holy.Spirit.as.you.read,.you.quickly.find.
that.God.is.just.giving.you.one.piece.of.the.puzzle...What.I.understand.now.does.not.fully.match.
what.I.understood.a.year.ago..
.
This. is. all. part. of. our. constant. sanctification.. . Our. pouring. ourselves. into. scripture. to. better.
understand.God...You.must.release.your.pride.to.give.room.for.Gods.leading.in.your.hearts.as.
you.study..
.
To.begin.this.study,.you.must.fully.study.the.Bible.passages.about.the."Kingdom.of.Heaven".and.
the."Day.of.the.Lord.".
.
The.most.convincing.and.compelling.study.is.the."Kingdom.of.Heaven.Parables."..Jesus.always.
describes. the. "bad. guys". taken. before. the. "good. guys,". and. always. mentions. both. sides.
remaining.until.He.returns...Here.is.one.example:.
.
"Another.parable.He.put.forth.to.them,.saying:.The.kingdom.of.heaven.is.like.a.man.who.sowed.
good.seed.in.his.field;.but.while.men.slept,.his.enemy.came.and.sowed.tares.among.the.wheat.
and.went.his.way..But.when.the.grain.had.sprouted.and.produced.a.crop,.then.the.tares.also.
appeared..So.the.servants.of.the.owner.came.and.said.to.him,.Sir,.did.you.not.sow.good.seed.in.
your.field?.How.then.does.it.have.tares?.He.said.to.them,.An.enemy.has.done.this..The.servants.
said.to.him,.Do.you.want.us.then.to.go.and.gather.them.up?.But.he.said,.No,.lest.while.you.
gather. up. the. tares. you. also. uproot. the. wheat. with. them.. Let. both. grow. together. until. the.
harvest,.and.at.the.time.of.harvest.I.will.say.to.the.reapers,.First.gather.together.the.tares.and.
bind.them.in.bundles.to.burn.them,.but.gather.the.wheat.into.my.barn..
.
Notice.how.the.two.grew.together...At.the.end,.the.tares.were.bundled.together.to.be.burned,.
but.both.grew.together.so.as.not.to.disturb.the.wheat...At.reaping.time:.one.taken,.one.burned..
.
Zechariah.14.tells.about.the.coming.Day.of.the.Lord,.and.then.tribulation.starts.at.verse.6:.
.

www.seekyethetruth.com.

302.

On.that.day.there.shall.be.no.light,.cold,.or.frost...And.there.shall.be.a.unique[b].day,.which.is.
known.to.the.Lord,.neither.day.nor.night,.but.at.evening.time.there.shall.be.light..
.
The.chapter.starts.describing.deep.tribulation.here.in.verse.12;.
.
And.this.shall.be.the.plague.with.which.the.Lord.will.strike.all.the.peoples.that.wage.war.against.
Jerusalem:.their.flesh.will.rot.while.they.are.still.standing.on.their.feet,.their.eyes.will.rot.in.their.
sockets,.and.their.tongues.will.rot.in.their.mouths..
.
But.notice.that.this.is.after.the.Lord.returns.and.is.made.King.in.verse.9:.
.
And.the.Lord.will.be.king.over.all.the.earth..On.that.day.the.Lord.will.be.one.and.his.name.one..
.
Towards.the.end.of.the.chapter.we.see.the.famines:.
.
Then.everyone.who.survives.of.all.the.nations.that.have.come.against.Jerusalem.shall.go.up.year.
after.year.to.worship.the.King,.the.Lord.of.hosts,.and.to.keep.the.Feast.of.Booths..And.if.any.of.
the.families.of.the.earth.do.not.go.up.to.Jerusalem.to.worship.the.King,.the.Lord.of.hosts,.there.
will.be.no.rain.on.them..And.if.the.family.of.Egypt.does.not.go.up.and.present.themselves,.then.
on.them.there.shall.be.no.rain;[f].there.shall.be.the.plague.with.which.the.Lord.afflicts.the.nations.
that.do.not.go.up.to.keep.the.Feast.of.Booths..This.shall.be.the.punishment.to.Egypt.and.the.
punishment.to.all.the.nations.that.do.not.go.up.to.keep.the.Feast.of.Booths..
.
In.Matthew.24,.Jesus.gives.the.signs.to.look.for.as."birth.pains".for.the.coming.Kingdom,.signs..
which.we.now.see:.
.
For.nation.will.rise.against.nation,.and.kingdom.against.kingdom,.and.there.will.be.famines.and.
earthquakes.in.various.places..All.these.are.but.the.beginning.of.the.birth.pains..Then.they.will.
deliver.you.up.to.tribulation.and.put.you.to.death,.and.you.will.be.hated.by.all.nations.for.my.
name's.sake..And.then.many.will.fall.away.and.betray.one.another.and.hate.one.another..And.
many.false.prophets.will.arise.and.lead.many.astray..And.because.lawlessness.will.be.increased,.
the.love.of.many.will.grow.cold...
.
.
The.Bible.does.not.say,."any.who.believe.me.will.be.removed.from.this.tribulation"...Here.is.what.
Jesus.said.next:.
.
But. the. one. who. endures. to. the. end. will. be. saved.. And. this. gospel. of. the. kingdom. will. be.
proclaimed.throughout.the.whole.world.as.a.testimony.to.all.nations,.and.then.the.end.will.come..
.
Next,.Jesus.talks.directly.about.the.tribulation...And.Jesus.says.that.the.tribulation.itself.will.be.
cut.short.for.the.sake.of.the.elect...Some.have.twisted.this.to.say.ONLY.for.the.elect,.but.the.
scripture.does.not.say.this.when.you.combine.the.first.part.of.the.sentence:.
.
www.seekyethetruth.com.

303.

For.then.there.will.be.great.tribulation,.such.as.has.not.been.from.the.beginning.of.the.world.
until.now,.no,.and.never.will.be..And.if.those.days.had.not.been.cut.short,.no.human.being.would.
be.saved..But.for.the.sake.of.the.elect.those.days.will.be.cut.short..
.
Right.before.the.end,.Jesus.speaks.about.the.final.roadsign.we.are.given:..when.the.powers.of.
the.heavens.are.shaken.and.the.sun.refuses.to.shine:.
.
Immediately.after.the.tribulation.of.those.days.the.sun.will.be.darkened,.and.the.moon.will.not.
give.its.light,.and.the.stars.will.fall.from.heaven,.and.the.powers.of.the.heavens.will.be.shaken..
Then.will.appear.in.heaven.the.sign.of.the.Son.of.Man,.and.then.all.the.tribes.of.the.earth.will.
mourn,.and.they.will.see.the.Son.of.Man.coming.on.the.clouds.of.heaven.with.power.and.great.
glory..And.he.will.send.out.his.angels.with.a.loud.trumpet.call,.and.they.will.gather.his.elect.from.
the.four.winds,.from.one.end.of.heaven.to.the.other.
.
And.after.these.things,.Jesus.gave.warning.to.everyone:.be.prepared.for.this...Don't.be.surprised...
The.Lord.will.return...And.notice,.he.mentions.both.the.good.guys.and.the.bad.guys,.one.taken,.
one.left:.
.
"Then.two.men.will.be.in.the.field;.one.will.be.taken.and.one.left..Two.women.will.be.grinding.at.
the.mill;.one.will.be.taken.and.one.left..Therefore,.stay.awake,.for.you.do.not.know.on.what.day.
your.Lord.is.coming...But.know.this,.that.if.the.master.of.the.house.had.known.in.what.part.of.
the.night.the.thief.was.coming,.he.would.have.stayed.awake.and.would.not.have.let.his.house.
be.broken.into..Therefore.you.also.must.be.ready,.for.the.Son.of.Man.is.coming.at.an.hour.you.
do.not.expect.".
.
Here.is.the.part.that.most.people.miss...They.divide.the.Bible.into.chapters,.rather.than.reading.
the.books.as.one.single.scroll...After.these.things,.Jesus.describes.what.happens.when.he.sits.on.
the.throne,.and.we.see.both.the.good.and.the.bad.together,.going.through.Judgment..
.
And.don't.misinterpret.the.word."Judgment,".confusing.it.with."Sentence".as.many.ministers.do...
God.will.judge.(decide.the.fate.for).all.people..
.
When.the.Son.of.Man.comes.in.his.glory,.and.all.the.angels.with.him,.then.he.will.sit.on.his.
glorious.throne..Before.him.will.be.gathered.all.the.nations,.and.he.will.separate.people.one.from.
another.as.a.shepherd.separates.the.sheep.from.the.goats..And.he.will.place.the.sheep.on.his.
right,.but.the.goats.on.the.left..Then.the.King.will.say.to.those.on.his.right,.Come,.you.who.are.
blessed.by.my.Father,.inherit.the.kingdom.prepared.for.you.from.the.foundation.of.the.world..
For.I.was.hungry.and.you.gave.me.food,.I.was.thirsty.and.you.gave.me.drink,.I.was.a.stranger.and.
you.welcomed.me,.I.was.naked.and.you.clothed.me,.I.was.sick.and.you.visited.me,.I.was.in.prison.
and.you.came.to.me..Then.the.righteous.will.answer.him,.saying,.Lord,.when.did.we.see.you.
hungry.and.feed.you,.or.thirsty.and.give.you.drink?.And.when.did.we.see.you.a.stranger.and.
welcome.you,.or.naked.and.clothe.you?.And.when.did.we.see.you.sick.or.in.prison.and.visit.you?.
And.the.King.will.answer.them,.Truly,.I.say.to.you,.as.you.did.it.to.one.of.the.least.of.these.my.
brothers,.you.did.it.to.me..Then.he.will.say.to.those.on.his.left,.Depart.from.me,.you.cursed,.

into.the.eternal.fire.prepared.for.the.devil.and.his.angels..For.I.was.hungry.and.you.gave.me.no.
food,.I.was.thirsty.and.you.gave.me.no.drink,.I.was.a.stranger.and.you.did.not.welcome.me,.naked.
and.you.did.not.clothe.me,.sick.and.in.prison.and.you.did.not.visit.me..Then.they.also.will.answer,.
saying,.Lord,.when.did.we.see.you.hungry.or.thirsty.or.a.stranger.or.naked.or.sick.or.in.prison,.

do.it.to.one.of.the.least.of.these,.you.did.not.do.it.to.me..And.these.will.go.away.into.eternal.
punishment,.but.the.righteous.into.eternal.life..
.
Revelation.12.also.mentions.the.stars.falling.from.the.heavens,.and.specifically.tells.us.that.we.
will.suffer.at.the.hand.of.Satan..
.
Starting.in.verse.4...
.
His.tail.swept.down.a.third.of.the.stars.of.heaven.and.cast.them.to.the.earth..
.
Notice. the. "woman". that. is. described. in. that. passage. when. you. read. it. in. full.. . The. woman.
represents.Jerusalem,.which.brought.the.Christ.child:.
.
She.gave.birth.to.a.male.child,.one.who.is.to.rule.all.the.nations.with.a.rod.of.iron,.but.her.child.
was.caught.up.to.God.and.to.his.throne,.and.the.woman.fled.into.the.wilderness,.where.she.has.
a.place.prepared.by.God,.in.which.she.is.to.be.nourished.for.1,260.days..
.
Next.is.the.final.most.compelling.argument.for.tribulation.before.catching.away....
.
The.woman.is.tormented...Satan.unleashes.his.fury.on.Jerusalem...But.then,.Satan.turns.toward.
her.offspring:.the.church...The.Gentiles,.the.Jews,.all.who.became.children.of.God,.the.Church.of.
Jesus.Christ:.
.
"And.when.the.dragon.saw.that.he.had.been.thrown.down.to.the.earth,.he.pursued.the.woman.
who.had.given.birth.to.the.male.child..But.the.woman.was.given.the.two.wings.of.the.great.eagle.
so. that. she. might. fly. from. the. serpent. into. the. wilderness,. to. the. place. where. she. is. to. be.
nourished.for.a.time,.and.times,.and.half.a.time..The.serpent.poured.water.like.a.river.out.of.his.

woman,.and.the.earth.opened.its.mouth.and.swallowed.the.river.that.the.dragon.had.poured.
from.his.mouth..Then.the.dragon.became.furious.with.the.woman.and.went.off.to.make.war.on.
the. rest. of. her. offspring,. on. those. who. keep. the. commandments. of. God. and. hold. to. the.

.
About.20.miles.south.of.Jeffersonville,.in.Shepherdsville.Kentucky,.a.new.leader.started.spreading.
the.Pentecostal.message..But.it.was.a.slightly.different.message.than.the.one.spreading.from.
Azusa. Street. . a. message. of. common. interest. that. was. reaching. out. to. the. Oneness. and. the.
Trinitarian.Christians.to.bring.them.together.into.this.new.teaching..The.leader.of.this.movement.
denied.the.Trinitarian.belief.in.a.triune.nature.of.God,.denied.the.Oneness.belief.in.a.modalistic.
god,.and.started.a.ministry.persuading.the.people.that.his.middle.ground.was.a.divine.inspiration...
.
William. Sowders,. born. to. Charles. and. Florence. Meeky. Sowders. in. Louisville,. Kentucky. on.
September.13,.1879,.about.thirty.years.before.the.Azusa.Street.Revival..When.the.Pentecostal.
message.started.spreading.into.the.Midwest,.Sowders.stumbled.onto.a.meeting.while.fishing.the.
Ohio.River..In.1912,.he.was.baptized.into.the.Pentecostal.faith...
.
Not.long.after,.Sowders.started.preaching.while.floating.up.and.down.the.Ohio.River..His.Gospel.
Boat.baptized.many.into.the.Pentecostal.faith.as.it.moved.from.town.to.town.with.preaching,.
baptismal. services,. and. praying. for. the. sick,. and. ministry. of. tongues. as. was. common. in. the.
Pentecostal.movement...
.
It.was.when.Sowders.started.making.claims.that.God.had.spoke.to.the.world.to.announce.his.
coming.that.his.ministry.started.so.stray.from.the.Bible..Sowders.began.claiming.that.God.spoke.
from.the.heavens.as.he.stood.baptizing.in.the.Ohio.River.to.announce.his.ministry..In.this.claim,.
Gods.thundering.voice.spoke.through.the.heavens.to.commission.him.to.spread.the.Pentecostal.
message:.Evidence.of.the.Spirit,.Divine.Healing,.speaking.in.tongues,.and.baptism.in.the.name.of.
Jesus.Christ...
.
This.was.very.attractive.to.many.people..To.his.followers,.the.ministry.of.William.Sowders.was.
the.return.ministry.of.Jesus.Christ..They.associated.this.baptism.with.the.story.told.in.the.1st.
chapter.of.the.Gospel.according.to.John..But.there.was.one.very.important.element.missing.from.
the.story:.Christ...
.
John.1.tells.the.story.of.John.the.Baptist.as.he.began.to.spread.the.news.of.the.coming.Kingdom.
of.Heaven,.preparing.the.way.for.Christ..John.was.the.messenger.to.the.people,.and.his.message.
was.to.announce.the.arrival.of.the.King...
.
John.did.not.point.people.to.himself,.and.did.not.claim.any.spiritual.significance..When.asked.if.
he.was.the.coming.Prophet,.John.denied.the.claims.to.say.that.he.was.nothing.more.than.a.simple.
man.crying.out.for.others.to.prepare.for.the.coming.King..He.said,.I.am.the.voice.of.one.crying.
out.in.the.wilderness,.Make.straight.the.way.of.the.Lord,.as.the.prophet.Isaiah.said..John.was.
preparing.the.pathway.for.the.King.to.arrive,.rolling.out.the.red.carpet.and.asking.others.to.join.
in.the.preparation...

When. Jesus. approached. John. during. his. ministry,. John. recognized. the. Anointing.. He. said,.
Behold,.the.Lamb.of.God,.who.takes.away.the.sin.of.the.world!.This.is.he.of.whom.I.said,.After.
me.comes.a.man.who.ranks.before.me,.because.he.was.before.me..I.myself.did.not.know.him,.
but.for.this.purpose.I.came.baptizing.with.water,.that.he.might.be.revealed.to.Israel...
.
As.John.baptized.Jesus,.the.Father.spoke.from.the.heavens.and.announced.to.the.world.that.the.
King.had.arrived..God.spoke.to.the.people.present,.saying,.This.is.my.beloved.Son,.hear.ye.him,.
instructing.the.people.to.hear.the.message.of.Jesus.Christ...
.
What.Sowders.failed.to.recognize.was.that.Gods.voice.did.not.point.to.the.messenger,.John.the.
Baptist..Gods.voice.did.not.announce.the.coming.of.a.man.who.would.announce.the.coming.of.
the.Christ..Gods.voice.announced.the.arrival.of.the.King!..
.
When.later.asked.about.this.event,.John.was.very.clear.in.removing.himself.from.the.picture.so.
that.others.would.begin.to.focus.on.Christ..And.the.focus.was.not.the.baptism.of.John;.John.was.
simply.preparing.the.people.for.the.coming.King..He.was.washing.them.clean.for.the.arrival.of.
the.greatest.Gift.that.God.would.send.the.world:.His.Son...
.
When. the. disciples. of. John. noticed. the. disciples. of. Jesus. also. baptizing. the. people,. they.
questioned.the.competition..But.John.plainly.told.them.that.this.was.not.competitors,.this.was.
the.main.event...
.
You.yourselves.are.my.witnesses.that.I.said,.I.am.not.the.Christ,.but,.I.have.been.sent.ahead.
of.Him..He.who.has.the.bride.is.the.bridegroom;.but.the.friend.of.the.bridegroom,.who.stands.
and.hears.him,.rejoices.greatly.because.of.the.bridegrooms.voice..So.this.joy.of.mine.has.been.
made.full..He.must.increase,.but.I.must.decrease...
.
He.who.comes.from.above.is.above.all,.he.who.is.of.the.earth.is.from.the.earth.and.speaks.of.
the. earth.. He. who. comes. from. heaven. is. above. all.. What. He. has. seen. and. heard,. of. that. He.
testifies;.and.no.one.receives.His.testimony..He.who.has.received.His.testimony.has.set.his.seal.
to.this,.that.God.is.true..For.He.whom.God.has.sent.speaks.the.words.of.God;.for.He.gives.the.
Spirit.without.measure..The.Father.loves.the.Son.and.has.given.all.things.into.His.hand..He.who.
believes.in.the.Son.has.eternal.life;.but.he.who.does.not.obey.the.Son.will.not.see.life,.but.the.
wrath.of.God.abides.on.him...
John.3.
.
.
But.in.Sowders.claim,.there.was.no.decrease.to.prepare.the.way..If.this.claim.were.true,.God.
would.be.telling.the.people.to.increase.the.ministry.of.Sowders,.and.the.people.would.focus.their.
hearts.on.the.man.instead.of.God..God.would.be.asking.people.to.focus.on.the.work.of.a.mortal.
instead.of.the.Work.already.accomplished.on.the.cross...
.
Sowders.was.a.strong.proponent.of.dispensationalism,.and.preached.that.we.were.now.living.in.
the.Gentile.dispensation..His.gospel.described.the.times.before.this.commission,.claiming.that.

there.was.not.sufficient.grace.to.rapture.the.church..The.work.that.Christ.did.on.Calvary.was.
made.non\effect.under.this.teaching..The.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ.is.vastly.different..The.Work.that.
Christ.did.on.Calvary.was.a.completed.work,.once.for.all..When.Christ.came.to.earth.in.order.to.
fulfill. the. Old. Covenant. and. remove. the. sin. of. the. world,. that. removal. was. everlasting.. He.
established.an.everlasting.covenant.of.Grace.that.did.not.have.a.variable.speed..There.was.to.
be.no.periods.of.time.when.Gods.Grace.was.limited...
.
But.there.is.nothing.new.under.the.sun..No.false.teaching.or.false.doctrine.rises.today.that.has.
not.already.been.presented.to.the.Church.of.the.Living.God..The.same.thing.happened.during.
Pauls.ministry..Pauls.letter.to.the.Galatians.describes.the.very.same.thing..the.people.being.
persuaded.to.listen.to.a.different.gospel...
.
The. word. Gospel. means. Good. News.. It. is. the. Good. News. that. Christ. fulfilled. the. Old.
Covenant.Law,.died.for.our.sins,.and.rose.again.so.that.we.can.rise.with.Him..He.offered.us.the.
Gift.of.Salvation.by.simply.believing.in.Him..It.is.by.Grace.that.we.are.saved,.through.faith.in.Jesus.
Christ...
.
Paul.rebuked.the.Galatians.for.turning.away.from.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ:..
.
I.am.astonished.that.you.are.so.quickly.deserting.the.one.who.called.you.to.live.in.the.grace.of.
Christ. and. are. turning. to. a. different. gospelwhich. is. really. no. gospel. at. all.. Evidently. some.
people.are.throwing.you.into.confusion.and.are.trying.to.pervert.the.gospel.of.Christ..But.even.if.
we.or.an.angel.from.heaven.should.preach.a.gospel.other.than.the.one.we.preached.to.you,.let.
them.be.under.Gods.curse!.As.we.have.already.said,.so.now.I.say.again:.If.anybody.is.preaching.
to.you.a.gospel.other.than.what.you.accepted,.let.them.be.under.Gods.curse!.Galatians.1:6\9.
.
But.again,.there.is.nothing.new.under.the.sun..Satan.does.not.have.the.power.to.create,.and.
reuses.the.same.recurring.themes.over.and.over..Sowders.came.with.a.different.gospel..One.that.
pointed. to. himself.. One. that. caused. the. people. to. become. followers. of. Sowders.. One. that.
claimed.God.spoke.through.the.heavens.to.announce.the.arrival.of.a.man...
.
Sowders. purchased. a. large. plot. of. land. in. Shepherdsville,. Kentucky,. about. twenty. miles. from.

the.story.considerably.from.the.small.number.of.people.on.Sowders.Gospel.Boat...

Branhams.claim.not.only.included.the.fantastic.number.of.500.people,.but.also.the.significance.
of.the.newspaper..God.not.only.announced.the.arrival.of.this.new.minister.and.his.new.gospel,.
Branham. claimed. that. God. spread. this. news. through. use. of. the. printing. press.. People. from.
Jeffersonville.into.Canada.were.given.the.choice.to.either.accept.his.new.gospel,.or.to.refuse.it..
And. who. could. refuse. a. newspaper. article. of. a. light. shining. down. from. heaven,. telling. the.
people.that.this.was.Gods.beloved.human.in.which.he.is.well.pleased?..
.
Branham.would.claim.that.after.the.seventeenth.person,.God.spoke.to.the.world.to.announce.
this.Jeffersonville.ministers.arrival:..
.
And.I.walked.out.in.the.water,.with.my.seventeenth.candidate,.to.baptize..And.when.I.baptized,.
started.to.baptize,.I.said,.As.I.baptize.thee.with.water,.may.the.Lord.Jesus....When.I.said.that,.
Something.struck.me.and.said,."Look.up.".And.as.I.turned.to.look,.after.the.third.time.It.said.it,.a.

I.was.raised.to.believe.a.different.gospel..This.Gospel,.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ,.was.new.to.me.
in. January. of. 2012.. I. studied. the. scriptures,. from. cover. to. cover,. completely. shocked. that.
anybody.would.even.want.to.teach.any.other.gospel..The.Gospel.that.has.the.power.to.save.was.
replaced. by. a. gospel. that. placed. the. people. back. under. a. new. version. of. law,. but. was. much.
worse...
.
James. 2:10. says. that. whoever. keeps. the. whole. law. but. fails. in. one. point. has. become.
accountable.for.all.of.it,.and.Matthew.24:12.says.that,.because.lawlessness.will.be.increased,.
the.love.of.many.will.grow.cold...
.
This.gospel,.this.mixture.of.law.and.grace.has.done.just.that..People.do.not.keep.the.entire.law,.
only.portions.of.it..They.do.not.stone.their.children.for.disobeying..They.do.not.banish.men.from.
the.congregation.if.they.are.injured.in.the.genitals,.or.uphold.even.the.full.extent.of.the.tithing.
system.. They. do. not. sacrifice. animals. to. atone. for. sin. . they. abandon. that. particular. law. to.
replace. it. with. the. Atonement. given. under. the. New. Covenant.. But. they. break. the. law. while.
upholding.portions.of.it,.becoming.lawless...
.
Its. no. wonder. new. gospels. keep. spreading.. When. the. love. of. man. grows. cold,. they. look. for.
something.to.replace.the.Love.of.God..The.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ.is.no.longer.valuable.to.the.
lawless...
.
The.ministry.of.William.Sowders.has.died.out..Very.few.today,.even.in.the.Louisville.area,.have.
any.idea.that.this.ministry.was.established.only.a.few.minutes.south.of.town..The.Pentecostal.
movement. was. the. life. of. the. vine,. and. that. vine. had. severed. itself. from. the. majority. of.
Pentecostals..It.could.no.longer.feed.on.itself,.so.it.withered.and.died...
.
Other.gospels.will.come..Other.gospels.will.go..But.if.their.roots.are.built.upon.the.foundation.of.
a. mans. doctrine,. they. will. wither. and. die.. There. is. only. one. Nourishment. that. can. support.
healthy.growth.of.the.Body.of.Christ,.and.that.Nourishment.is.found.in.Gods.Word..

unimportant.as.compared.to.the.doctrines.of.the.men.who.coerced.them.into.separating.from.
other.Christians...The.Word.is.replaced.with.the.word.of.a.man..
.
Charles.Taze.Russell,.founder.of.the.Jehovahs.Witness.faith,.denied.this.fundamental.teaching.

We.shall.see.subsequently,.when.we.come.to.consider.particularly.the.ransom.feature.of.his.

The.word.Elohim.used.in.the.book.of.Genesis.is.plural.for.the.word.God...That.does.not.mean.
that.there.is.more.than.one.God,.but.describes.the.nature.of.God.as.being.different.than.that.of.

understands.all...Genesis,.correctly.translated.in.every.accepted.version.of.the.Bible.reads,.Let.

And.were.it.not.for.Adams.loneliness,.we.would.likely.have.a.better.understanding.of.God...The.
original.creation.included.both.male.and.female.in.one.earthly.body...That.body.was.separated...
While. many. believe. that. Eve. was. created. from. the. bone. of. a. human. rib,. the. original. word.
(Strongs.6763,.tsela).describes.the.side,.not.the.internal.bone.structure..

When.the.Jerusalem.wall.was.being.reconstructed.in.Nehemiah.3,.the.high.priest.Eliashib.and.
the.other.priests.built.an.opening.that.would.later.become.known.as.the.Sheep.Gate...It.was.
through.this.gate.that.the.lambs.and.sheep.were.brought.into.the.temple.for.sacrifice..
.
It. is. very. fitting. that. the. Sheep. Gate. was. the. first. gate. built,. because. new. life. is. given. by. the.

on.the.Sabbath,.breaking.Old.Covenant.Law.according.to.tradition,.but.outraged.many.when.He.

.

But. the. Pharisees. in. chapter. five. agreed. with. Pastor. Russell. and. William. Branham.. . They.
considered.it.blasphemy.for.Christ.to.make.himself.equal.with.God,.and.therefore.they.started.

In.response,.Jesus.proclaimed.His.authority...He.told.them.that.he.not.only.was.equal.with.the.
Father,.but.that.He.was.given.power.to.raise.the.dead:.

For.as.the.Father.has.life.in.himself,.so.he.has.granted.the.Son.also.to.have.life.in.himself...And.

showed.him.many.things...But.he.tells.us.later.in.the.chapter.the.REASON.that.He.chose.to.do.so...
Jesus.tells.us.that.it.was.for.our.salvation..

The$Failed$Prophecy$of$Judgment$
.
At.5:36.PM.on.March.27,.1964,.a.megathrust.earthquake.ripped.through.south\central.Alaska.
causing.destruction.and.tsunamis.resulting.in.143.deaths...This.earthquake,.lasting.almost.three.
minutes,.was.the.most.powerful.earthquake.recorded.in.North.American.history,.and.the.second.
most.powerful.that.has.ever.been.measured.by.the.seismograph...At.9.2,.it.is.the.number.two.
largest.earthquake.in.recorded.history..
.
This.natural.disaster.brought.worldwide.attention...And.with.widespread.attention,.it.attracted.
the.spiritualists.and.doomsday.prophets...Just.as.we.see.today.with.Pat.Roberson.and.his.use.of.
fear.to.gain.support.during.the.2010.earthquake.in.Haiti.or.the.hurricane.that.struck.New.Orleans,.
we.find.devious.minds.preying.on.the.weakness.of.the.human.heart.were.alive.and.well.in.1964..
.
But.one.spiritual.leader,.William.Branham,.turned.this.catastrophic.event.into.a.prophecy...Not.
one.that.came.to.pass,.however...Even.though.this.was.prophesied.after.the.event.happened,.
we.find.after.examining.the.prophecy.that.this.was.indeed.another.failed.prophecy.in.the.long.
line.of.failures.for.the.cult.leader..
.
The.first.time.this.earthquake.is.mentioned.on.recorded.tape.is.in.April.1,.1964,.only.days.after.
the.event...But.though.this.alleged.prophecy.was.given.after.the.event,.no.mention.of.prophecy.
was.given...The.earthquake.was.used.as.a.tool.in.the.sermon,.used.as.a.fear.tactic.to.instill.godly.
fear.into.the.hearts.of.men:.
.
Now.we.see.things.happening.likes.been.happening.in.the.world.the.last.few.days..
.
For.instance,.the.great.earthquake.in.Alaska..Never.has.been.an.earthquake.like.that,.in.all.the.
world..Did.you.notice?.It.come.on.Good.Friday..You.know,.the.last.time.the.world.was.shaken.
was.on.Good.Friday,.too,.when.our.Master.died,.and.it.shook.the.whole.world..And.remember,.
it.might.be.the.sign.of.Him.returning..He.said,.that,."There'd.be.earthquakes.in.divers.places.".
Today. we. got. another. one. in. California,. and. they're. just. appearing. everywhere,. light.
earthquakes..We.notice,.even.the.Capitol.building.has.moved.out.of.its.place,.and.moved.back..
And\\and. down. here. in. Baton. Rouge,. Louisiana,. there's. a. swimming. pool. there,. dashed. the.
waters. out,. from. plumb. from. Alaska.. Over. in. Switzerland,. Sweden,. and. through. there,. shook.
buildings.and.things,.around.the.world..
.
I.believe.that.it's.trying.to.open.our.eyes,.to.see.the.hour.that.we're.living..I'm.here.in.godly.fear,.
that,.it.may.be.sooner.than.we.think,.of.His.appearing..
.
64\0401..THE.IDENTIFIED.CHRIST.OF.ALL.AGES.
.
But.notice...Branham.says.that.he.believes.it.is.trying.to.open.the.eyes...He.uses.it.as.a.warning.
for.preparation.in.the.sermon,.not.a.declaration.of.judgment...
.

www.seekyethetruth.com.

326.

Over.time.in.the.sermons.from.1964.to.1965,.Branham.gradually.changes.this.warning.in.to.
prophecy...But.never.was.any.explanation.given.by.God.as.to.what.the.people.of.Alaska.had.done.
that.was.so.awful.that.it.deserved.the.wrath.of.Almighty.God..
.
When.Branham.describes.how.this.prophecy.was.given,.it.was.not.the.Lord.speaking.through.
him..instead.it.was.a.spirit.that.Branham.called.the.Holy.Spirit.telling.him.to.say.the.words.
THUS.SAITH.THE.LORD:.
.
He.said,.Throw.it.up.in.the.air,.and.say,.'THUS.SAITH.THE.LORD.'.I.did...Down.from.there.come.
a.little.funnel.of.wind..I.said,.Within.twenty\four.hours,.you'll.see.the.hand.of.God..
.
65\0429E..THE.CHOOSING.OF.A.BRIDE.
.
But.was.this.the.Holy.Spirit?.
.
When.Old.Testament.prophets.declared.judgment.on.the.nations.in.the.days.of.old,.God.spoke.
through.the.prophets.to.rebuke.their.constant.fall.to.idolatry...Like.a.father.correcting.his.child,.
God.gave.reason.for.the.punishment...Many.times.there.was.an.option.to.prevent.the.judgment,.
if.they.turned.from.their.wickedness.to.God..
.
But. the. poor. people. of. Alaska. were. given. no. warning,. given. no. reason,. and. seemingly. being.
destroyed.simply.because.William.Branham.said.so...Again,.notice.Branham.said.in.the.sermon,.
I.SAID,.not.GOD.SAID...
.
What.if.I.suddenly.did.like.William.Branham,.and.threw.a.little.rock.in.the.air.and.said,.Judgment.
is.going.to.strike.Montana!.
.
Id.have.the.entire.church.questioning.the.nonsense.I.just.spewed.from.my.mouth!..Why.is.God.
going.to.smite.Montana?..What.did.those.poor.people.do?..Can.they.repent?..Is.it.too.late?..Why.
did.God.not.warn.them.first!.
.
The.first.time.this.earthquake.is.mentioned.as.a.prediction.was.in.a.sermon.entitled.Jehovah.
Jireh,. also. days. after. the. quake.. . But. it. isnt. Branham. who. predicted. the. earthquake.. . This.
prophecy.came.from.Jesus.Christ,.not.William.Branham:.
.
Did.you.see.Alaska.having.a.couple.more.earthquakes.today?.One.of.them,.as.hard.as.the.first.
one.was,.only.didn't.shake.it.down..You.know,.Jesus.said.them.kind.of.things.would.take.place.

.
What.Jesus.actually.said.is.found.in.Mark.13:8:.
.
..
.
For.nation.will.rise.against.nation,.and.kingdom.against.kingdom..There.will.be.earthquakes.in.
various.places;.there.will.be.famines..These.are.but.the.beginning.of.the.birth.pains..
.
Mark.13:8.
.
Jesus. said. that. the. quakes. signified. the. beginning,. not. the. end.. . There. is. a. long. list. of. things.
described.for.our.roadmap,.from.tribulation.to.the.stars.falling.from.heaven...
.
Immediately.after.giving.the.description.of.how.the.false.prophets.would.rise.in.our.roadmap.to.
the. Kingdom,. Christ. told. us. what. would. happen. just. before. the. end. . and. it. was. not. an.
earthquake.to.punish.the.poor.people.of.Alaska:.
.
But.in.those.days,.after.that.tribulation,.the.sun.will.be.darkened,.and.the.moon.will.not.give.its.
light,.and.the.stars.will.be.falling.from.heaven,.and.the.powers.in.the.heavens.will.be.shaken..And.
then.they.will.see.the.Son.of.Man.coming.in.clouds.with.great.power.and.glory..
.
Mark.13:24\26.
.
It.feels.strange.having.to.say.that.this.was.a.failed.prophecy.since.it.was.given.after.the.event.
happened...But.the.cult.followers.are.programmed.to.believe.that.anything.William.Branham.said.
from.behind.a.pulpit.is.absolute.truth...Even.though.they.are.given.access.to.the.same.resources.
to.try.to.find.a.single.prophecy.given.before.the.event.that.happened.just.exactly.as.Branham.
claimed,.they.refuse.because.they.falsely.believe.they.can.rest.assured.in.the.words.of.Branham.
rather.than.the.Word.of.God..
.
But.even.though.this.prophecy.was.given.after\the\fact,.it.was.given.incorrectly...In.this.scenario,.
and.if.this.were.true,.the.Word.of.God.would.have.failed...Under.Old.Covenant.Law,.God.did.not.
strike.without.warning.for.repentance...This.would.be.a.different.god,.a.ruthless.one.that.did.not.
care.for.his.children.and.did.not.desire.for.all.to.be.saved.and.all.to.believe.in.His.Name..
.
And.God.does.not.strike.an.entire.state.filled.with.good,.Christian.people.as.judgment.for.some.
unknown.mistake,.and.then.change.His.mind.about.His.own.actions...He.does.not.strike.with.
judgment.and.then.say.that.it.was.a.warning.shot.for.the.coming.judgment...
.
According.to.the.words.of.this.prophet,.God.failed...God.abandoned.us...God.deserted.people.
for.no.known.reason...The.people.of.Alaska.are.severed.from.the.Body.of.Christ.without.any.
knowledge.as.to.why...They.do.not.even.know.what.they.should.repent.for;.Branham.never.told.
them!..

This.is.not.the.God.that.we.serve...We.do.not.serve.a.narcissistic.god.who.shows.random.wrath...
We.do.not.serve.a.god.that.strikes.without.warning,.instills.fear.in.our.hearts,.and.tell.us,.Just.

The. prophet. is. dead.. . This. prophecy. given. in. Deuteronomy. was. accurate.. . Branham. gave. a.

I.always.get.a.chuckle.when.a.new.person.stumbles.across.something.Ive.written.on.my.website.
or.on.a.forum,.and.asks.me.the.question,.Are.you.a.preacher?.
.
Its.funny,.because.to.most.Christians,.this.would.be.a.compliment...To.be.recognized.as.a.person.
who.cares.enough.about.the.things.of.God.to.tell.another.is.very.encouraging,.and.should.be.a.
blessing.to.us.as.Christians..
.
But.the.reason.this.question.brings.humor.is.in.the.situation...While.all.other.Christians.would.
receive.this.as.a.compliment,.I.know.that.when.this.question.comes.from.a.person.programmed.
with.the.teaching.of.William.Branham,.it.is.intended.to.insult..
.
But.the.greater.irony.is.the.comparison.between.what.we.see.in.this.contrast.of.Christians.verses.
cult.is.when.we.begin.to.compare.it.to.the.early.days.of.Christ..
.
Those.of.us.that.have.left.the.Message,.the.denomination.of.faith.that.follows.the.teaching.of.
William.Marrion.Branham,.have.mostly.been.condemned.or.outcast.by.the.cult.followers...I.will.
admit.that.not.everyone.has,.but.the.vast.majority.of.people.have.went.through.the.struggle.to.
find.new.friends,.new.support.groups,.and.even.men.or.women.to.replace.that.love.that.a.mother.
or.father.will.no.longer.show.for.their.new.walk.with.Christ..
.
Under.the.Old.Covenant,.God.instructed.the.Children.of.Israel.to.be.a.separated.people...They.
were. to. strictly. follow. the. Mosaic. Law,. and. any. person. refusing. to. follow. or. who. rose. in.
opposition.to.that.Law.were.outcast...God.was.building.a.church,.and.the.Children.of.Israel.were.
the.foundation.to.that.church...The.Levitical.priesthood.were.to.remain.pure.and.holy,.and.the.
tribe.of.Judah.was.going.to.produce.the.greatest.Gift.that.this.world.has.ever.known..
.
The. Law. was. harsh.. . If. you. study. how. that. Law. was. given,. youll. find. that. it. could. almost. be.
considered.a.punishment.for.the.Children.of.Israel.after.they.breached.the.first.covenant.that.
Moses.received.from.God...In.Gods.wrath,.He.gave.the.children.of.Israel.a.set.of.rules.that.He.
knew.they.could.never.uphold...And.they.didnt..
.
Constantly,.they.fell.into.idolatry...They.begin.to.worship.one.thing.or.another,.and.the.trail.of.
false.gods.can.be.found.all.through.the.history.of.the.Children.of.Israel...
.
Its.interesting,.because.archaeological.digs.in.the.places.where.Israel.were.known.to.have.lived.
have.produced.household.idols.of.Asherah,.the.breasted.god...When.these.were.first.found,.
the. Archaeologists. that. did. not. know. their. bibles. falsely. believed. that. the. Children. of. Israel.
worshipped.this.idol.as.well.as.Yahweh...As.news.of.what.they.found.began.to.spread,.this.belief.
that. Yahweh. had. a. female. counterpart. in. the. form. of. an. idol. actually. took. hold.. . Youll. find.
websites. of. men. proclaiming. this. fall. to. idolatry. without. the. corresponding. scriptures. where.
Gods.wrath.was.shown.for.including.pagan.gods.in.their.worship...

.
This.even.took.hold.in.the.cult.of.William.Branham...Branham.taught.that.El.Shaddai,.or.the.
God.of.Abraham,.was.the.breasted.god...Branham.was.fascinated.with.things.of.science,.and.
relayed.them.to.his.people.on.recordings.with.a.spiritual.twist.that.made.his.followers.believe.
these.things.came.to.him.by.divine.revelation..
.
But.under.the.Old.Covenant.Law,.there.was.a.strict.priesthood...Not.just.anybody.could.be.a.
priest,. only. those. from. the. tribe. of. Levi.. . The. Levitical. priesthood. was. carried. down. from.
generation.to.generation,.and.would.ultimately.produce.the.men.in.the.priesthood.that.Christ.
would.one.day.rebuke...
.
And.the.Israelites.would.rebuke.Christ.in.return,.because.He.was.not.a.Levite...Jesus.was.born.in.
the.tribe.of.Judah,.and.was.nothing.but.a.simple.son.of.a.carpenter...The.Bible.emphasizes.the.
stark.contrast,.because.the.ones.that.had.abandoned.love.completely.to.enforce.Law.were.of.the.
respected.Levitical.bloodline..
.
So.when.Christ.started.standing.for.Truth,.and.started.teaching.the.people.the.way.of.life.that.
God.wants.for.His.Children,.all.sides.scorned.and.condemned...Women,.who.under.custom.were.
not.permitted.to.be.involved.with.spiritual.discussions.or.learn.spiritual.teaching.were.now.sitting.
around. Christ. as. he. taught. how. the. Law. had. failed. and. Grace. was. required.. . Those. women,.
breaking.the.tradition.to.become.Christian,.were.scorned.and.mocked.by.the.friends.and.families.
that.they.once.knew.and.loved...As.Christ.taught.them.freedom.in.Grace,.their.friends.scorned.
them.for.breaking.the.Law..
.
This.scorn.was.compounded.by.the.true.nature.of.the.Gospel...When.you.hear.the.real.Gospel.of.
Jesus.Christ,.the.Good.News.that.Christ.came.to.fulfill.the.Law,.lived.the.perfect.life.that.we.could.
never.live,.died.on.the.cross.for.the.sins.of.the.world,.and.rose.again.so.that.we.can.rise.with.him.
.simply.by.believing.that.He.did.this.for.us..you.become.excited!..You.must.tell.others!..You.
want.everybody.to.know.what.Jesus.Christ.did.for.you!.
.
The.Gospel.has.the.power.to.save...The.Gospel.alone...When.men.or.women.hear.of.freedom.for.
earthly.things,.they.quickly.grow.excited,.and.they.cannot.sleep.until.they.have.told.another...And.
another...How.much.more.the.freedom.in.Christ?.
.
Paul.said.that.we.are.now.free,.and.that.ALL.things.are.lawful...Paul.carried.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.
Christ.to.the.nations,.spreading.the.Good.News.that.Jesus.Christ.had.set.us.free.from.Law...Now.
even.the.Jews,.once.bound.by.the.penalty.of.the.Law,.were.set.free.to.serve.God.without.the.
same. oppression. that. once. had. them. bound.. . And. they. were. free. to. worship. God. with. the.
Gentiles,.which.was.a.clear.violation.of.the.Law...
.
The. Gentiles. were. scorned. by. the. tradition. of. the. Law.. . They. were. uncircumcised,. ate. food.
sacrificed. to. idols. in. their. temples,. and. were. descendants. from. a. long. line. of. people. that.

innocent.victims.on.an.alter.of.a.false.god,.can.be.saved.by.simply.hearing.the.Good.News.that.
God.sent.His.Only.Son.to.die.for.the.sins.of.the.world.and.set.us.free!.
.
So.when.I.get.asked.this.question,.Are.you.a.preacher,.it.gives.me.a.good.chuckle...That.very.
question.tells.me.that.I.am.dealing.with.a.person.bound.by.law..and.they.have.no.idea.that.there.
are.spiritual.chains.hanging.from.their.hands.and.feet...Like.the.Jews,.this.law.is.the.only.law.they.
know...They.do.not.know.the.Grace.of.Jesus.Christ,.or.the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ..otherwise.they.
would.have.read.the.many.scriptures.Paul.wrote.in.his.letters.to.the.church.describing.freedom.
from.this.law!.
.
They.would.know.that.spreading.the.Gospel.does.not.require.a.priesthood,.and.that.our.new.
High.Priest.is.Jesus.Christ..not.some.mortal.born.in.sin...They.would.have.read.how.Hezekiah.
broke.down.the.brazen.serpent.that.once.brought.Divine.Healing.to.the.children.of.Israel,.and.
later.became.an.idol.that.they.worshipped.ALONG.WITH.the.One.True.God!..They.would.know.
that.these.stories.of.the.Old.Testament.paved.the.way.for.a.people.burdened.by.Law.that.Christ.
would.one.day.set.free!.
.
That.very.question,.Are.you.a.preacher,.tells.me.that.I.am.dealing.with.a.person.who.has.been.
falsely.programmed.to.believe.that.only.a.cult.pastor.can.read,.understand,.and.tell.others.about.
the.Gospel.of.Jesus.Christ.and.the.things.of.the.bible...William.Branham.programmed.his.cult.
following.to.believe.this.by.twisting.a.scripture.opposite.of.its.intended.meaning:.
.
The. Bible. said,. that,. "Prophecy. is. of. no. private. interpretation.". Why?. Why. ain't. it. a. private.
interpretation?. Why?. "The. Word. of. the. Lord. came. to. the. prophets.". It. is. interpreted. by. the.
prophet...
.
Branham,.62\0401..
.
This.teaching.came.from.a.scripture.snipped.out.of.2.Peter.1,.reversed,.and.taken.as.a.context.
and.a.potion.of.scripture.by.William.Branham.to.trick.his.followers.into.believing.that.his.lack.
of.understanding.of.the.Bible.was.instead.some.new.sort.of.revelation...When.he.gave.the.people.
a.jumbled.mixture.of.verses.taken.out.of.context,.he.WAS.creating.a.potion,.and.that.mixture.
cast.a.spell.on.the.followers.to.trick.them.out.of.studying.their.Bibles..
.
If. you. read. the. verses. before. and. after,. youll. find. that. Peter. is. telling. us. that. God. gives.
understanding.of.scripture.to.anyone.desiring.to.learn...We.are.now.led.by.the.Holy.Spirit..not.
man...And.God.does.not.allow.one.single.man.to.interpret.scripture.and.lift.himself.up.as.an.idol.
over.the.people..
.
For.we.did.not.follow.cleverly.devised.myths.when.we.made.known.to.you.the.power.and.coming.
of.our.Lord.Jesus.Christ,.but.we.were.eyewitnesses.of.his.majesty...For.when.he.received.honor.
and.glory.from.God.the.Father,.and.the.voice.was.borne.to.him.by.the.Majestic.Glory,.This.is.my.
beloved. Son,. with. whom. I. am. well. pleased,. we. ourselves. heard. this. very. voice. borne. from.

the.day.dawns.and.the.morning.star.rises.in.your.hearts,.knowing.this.first.of.all,.that.no.prophecy.
of.Scripture.comes.from.someone's.own.interpretation...For.no.prophecy.was.ever.produced.by.
the.will.of.man,.but.men.spoke.from.God.as.they.were.carried.along.by.the.Holy.Spirit..But.false.
prophets.also.arose.among.the.people,.just.as.there.will.be.false.teachers.among.you,.who.will.
secretly.bring.in.destructive.heresies,.even.denying.the.Master.who.bought.them,.bringing.upon.
themselves.swift.destruction...And.many.will.follow.their.sensuality,.and.because.of.them.the.
way.of.truth.will.be.blasphemed...And.in.their.greed.they.will.exploit.you.with.false.words..Their.
condemnation.from.long.ago.is.not.idle,.and.their.destruction.is.not.asleep..

Its.difficult.to.stop.at.that.verse,.because.the.more.we.read,.the.more.thought.Peter.gives.to.this.
subject...Peter.speaks.against.those.who.trick.the.people.into.their.spiritual.power..
.
Its.ironic,.because.the.cult.of.William.Branham.condemns.the.Catholic.Church.for.this.very.thing...
They.recognize.the.authority.of.the.Pope.and.his.ultimate.authority.of.scripture...They.condemn.
it.and.are.very.vocal.against.this.hierarchy.that.was.replaced.under.the.New.Covenant.of.Grace..
.
But.while.picking.the.speck.out.of.the.eye.of.the.Catholic,.they.ignore.the.log.in.their.own.eyes...
They.do.not.see.that.they.have.set.up.the.very.same.thing.the.Catholic.Church.has.established,.
only.worse...The.Catholic.Church.takes.their.teaching.back.to.scripture,.and.at.least.makes.an.
effort.to.place.the.Bible.as.their.absolute.authority...But.whether.they.realize.it.or.not,.the.cult.
of.William.Branham.has.made.Branham.their.new.High.Priest.that.exceeds.the.authority.of.the.
Papacy..
.
The. evidence. in. this. is. given. in. the. long. conversation. that. follows. that. question,. Are. you. a.
preacher...The.programmed.next.question.to.my.response.of.No.is.to.bash.me.over.the.head.
with.quotes.from.William.Branham.that.belittle.me.for.standing.firmly.on.the.leading.of.Holy.
Spirit.as.I.read.Gods.Word...
.
While.the.Bible.instructs.me.to.do.this,.William.Branham.instructs.against.it...In.fact,.Branhams.
message.is.a.direct.argument.against.the.second.book.of.Peter!.
.
I.recently.studied.Romans.10,.and.find.that.it.is.a.fitting.answer.to.this.question...If.I.were.to.
simply. answer,. No,. I. am. not. a. preacher,. then. the. programmed. cult. mind. would. never.
understand...To.them,.I.AM.a.preacher,.because.I.am.reading.and.studying.Gods.Word...I.am.
pointing.out.conflicts.between.Gods.Word.and.the.words.of.William.Branham...I.am.pointing.out.

hearing.their.rules.and.regulations.from.a.priest...Though.there.is.no.distinction.between.the.
Gentiles.who.never.knew.Law.and.the.Jew.that.was.bound.by.it,.Paul.says.that.they.are.all.the.
same.in.the.eyes.of.God..
.
Paul.says,.
.
For.Moses.writes.about.the.righteousness.that.is.based.on.the.law,.that.the.person.who.does.
the.commandments.shall.live.by.them...But.the.righteousness.based.on.faith.says,.Do.not.say.in.
your.heart,.Who.will.ascend.into.heaven?.(that.is,.to.bring.Christ.down)..or.Who.will.descend.
into.the.abyss?.(that.is,.to.bring.Christ.up.from.the.dead)...But.what.does.it.say?.The.word.is.
near.you,.in.your.mouth.and.in.your.heart.(that.is,.the.word.of.faith.that.we.proclaim);..because,.
if.you.confess.with.your.mouth.that.Jesus.is.Lord.and.believe.in.your.heart.that.God.raised.him.
from.the.dead,.you.will.be.saved...For.with.the.heart.one.believes.and.is.justified,.and.with.the.
mouth.one.confesses.and.is.saved...For.the.Scripture.says,.Everyone.who.believes.in.him.will.not.
be.put.to.shame...For.there.is.no.distinction.between.Jew.and.Greek;.for.the.same.Lord.is.Lord.
of.all,.bestowing.his.riches.on.all.who.call.on.him...For.everyone.who.calls.on.the.name.of.the.
Lord.will.be.saved..

.
How.then.will.they.call.on.him.in.whom.they.have.not.believed?.And.how.are.they.to.believe.in.
him.of.whom.they.have.never.heard?.And.how.are.they.to.hear.without.someone.preaching?..
And.how.are.they.to.preach.unless.they.are.sent?.As.it.is.written,.How.beautiful.are.the.feet.of.
those.who.preach.the.good.news!..But.they.have.not.all.obeyed.the.gospel..For.Isaiah.says,.

through.the.word.of.Christ..

I.will.never.forget.those.long,.hot.evenings.in.the.Branham.Tabernacle.in.Jeffersonville,.Indiana,.
when.the.pastor.would.decide.to.play.the.recorded.sermon.by.William.Branham,.Marriage.and.
Divorce...Sitting.there.listening.to.what.I.believed.to.be.Gods.Word.as.children.sat.for.over.
two,.long.hours.counting.the.holes.in.the.ceiling.tiles...Seems.as.though.I.remember.a.few.adults.
counting.with.them,.trying.to.concentrate.on.the.sermon.from.1965,.but.not.succeeding..
.
At.the.end.of.the.sermon,.the.pastor.would.say.something.to.the.effect,.Im.so.glad.that.brother.
Branham.brought.us.this.sermon.so.that.we.would.know.the.truth.about.marriage.and.divorce...
Looking.back,.this.statement.is.a.bit.shocking.when.you.consider.that.it.comes.from.a.pastor...
One.would.assume.that.a.pastor.would.base.his.teaching.upon.the.Bible,.and.the.Bible.tells.us.
everything.we.need.to.know.about.the.union.between.a.woman.and.a.man...
.
Let.me.preface.by.saying.that.I.am.not.in.support.of.a.man.or.woman.leaving.his.or.her.spouse.
for.another...I.do.not.believe.that.this.is.Gods.perfect.plan...I.truly.believe.that.if.we.had.the.love.
that.Jesus.displayed.in.His.example.of.the.perfect.life,.there.would.be.no.separation...The.man.
and.his.wife.are.a.representation.of.Christ.and.His.Bride..
.
And. Im. not. going. to. argue. or. debate. against. the. decisions. of. a. pastor. as. he. teaches. on. this.
subject..so.long.as.his.teaching.remains.based.upon.scripture...Youll.find.many.articles.on.the.
internet.describing.Branham.verses.Bible.that.will.show.you.the.Words.of.Scripture.pointing.to.
Truth.without.having.to.even.begin.to.debate...The.Word.of.God.should.stand,.though.every.man.
be.found.a.liar..
.
Instead,.I.think.we.should.join.together.as.an.encouragement.for.Gods.children,.no.matter.who.
they.are.or.what.they.have.done...This.is.what.Christ.taught.us.to.do...While.it.was.not.Gods.
intention.for.any.to.separate,.it.was.also.not.Gods.intention.for.love.to.fail...Sadly,.it.happens...
This.is.a.world.filled.with.sin,.and.we.are.all.sinners.saved.by.Gods.Grace..
.
I.am.not.a.pastor,.and.do.not.consider.myself.a.shepherd.of.any.kind...I.am.free.to.voice.my.
opinion.without.fear.of.how.one.of.my.sheep.might.be.affected...I.believe.that.if.I.were.a.pastor,.
I.would.preach.strongly.against.men.and.women.separating,.using.the.words.found.in.scripture.
to.try.to.mend.relationships.before.they.are.severed...What.God.has.put.together,.let.no.man.
put.asunder..
.
But.this.is.only.one.small.part.of.the.responsibility.of.a.pastor...What.I.want.to.discuss.now.is.the.
other.side.of.the.issue:..showing.support.and.love.to.those.who.have.severed.past.relationships.
and.have.started.new.lives...A.pastor.who.stands.in.duty.on.the.first.half.of.the.issue.and.then.
hides.from.the.second.half.of.the.issue.is.not.standing.at.all...Turning.their.backs.away.from.Gods.
children,.they.become.less.of.a.shepherd.and.more.of.an.open.hole.in.the.fence..

Very. few. outside. of. Jeffersonville. know. the. background. story. to. Branhams. sermon. entitled.
Marriage.And.Divorce...Even.fewer.know.why.the.original.founding.fathers.of.this.religious.
movement.have.to.pretend.that.they.did.not.know.what.the.Bible.said.on.the.subject.before.
Branham.preached.this.sermon...
.
This.sermon.was.the.result.of.the.failed.union.between.Branhams.son,.Billy.Paul,.and.his.first.
wife...Though.he.preached.harshly.against.marrying.and.giving.in.marriage.on.recorded.tape,.
there.were.a.number.of.men.Branham.gave.a.special.pardon.to.because.their.separation.was.
prior.to.the.preaching.of.this.sermon...Billy.Paul.just.happened.to.be.one.of.those.men..
.
But.Billy.Paul.was.not.the.first...According.to.government.archives,.Branham.officiated.the.second.
and.third.marriage.for.his.brother.Jesse...Jesses.marriage.to.Agnes.Gulleth.and.Mary.Merryman.
were.both.officiated.by.William.Branham,.though.each.was.married.multiple.times...
.
Melvin.Branham,.Williams.brother,.also.traded.women.around.a.bit...William.Branham.officiated.
Melvins.marriage.to.Charlotte.Brumback.(Hopes.sister),.and.later.Catherine.Hendricks...Both.
Melvin.and.Catherine.were.married.multiple.times.when.Rev..Branham.officiated.their.wedding..
.
But.my.point.is.not.to.condemn.Branham.for.helping.his.brothers.trade.women.around.like.cattle...
We. do. not. know. the. background. story. behind. each. situation,. and. though. Branham. did. not.
practice.what.he.preached,.it.is.not.our.duty.to.judge.his.actions...Only.God.knows.why.Branham.
would.preach.one.thing.while.doing.another..
.
Pause.for.a.moment.and.picture.the.stories.of.two.women,.two.separate.stories.that.are.similar.
in.situation:.
.
Both.women.are.accused.of.living.in.adultery,.guilty.of.breaking.the.bonds.of.marriage...Both.
women. are. shamed. by. their. accusers.. . Both. women. are. certainly. guilty. of. their. sin,. standing.
before.their.shepherds.in.the.face.of.the.men.who.condemn.them..
.
One.Man.falls.to.his.knees.in.front.of.one.of.the.women,.drawing.something.in.the.sand...The.
other.man.raises.his.nose.in.scorn...One.man.addresses.the.accusers,.pointing.to.what.he.had.
drawn.in.the.sand,.while.the.other.man.addresses.the.other.accusers.pointing.his.finger.at.the.
woman..
.
As.the.two.sets.of.accusers.watch.the.women.and.their.respective.shepherds,.we.find.a.vast.
difference.in.the.outcomes...One.man.asks.the.accusers.which.of.them.are.without.sin...The.other.
tells.the.woman.being.accused.that.she.will.never.be.part.of.the.Bride.of.Christ..
.
Both.of.these.are.true.stories...One.is.found.in.John.8,.when.a.woman.was.brought.before.Christ.
to.be.stoned.for.her.adultery...The.other.was.brought.before.her.pastor.in.a.church.that.follows.

The.love.that.Jesus.displayed.for.this.woman.changed.her.life.forever...Though.she.was.guilty.of.
a.crime.that.was.punishable.by.death.under.the.Mosaic.Law,.Christ.stood.by.her.side.against.her.
accusers...While.the.Law.of.Moses.declared.punishment.and.death,.the.Love.of.Christ.declared.
new.life...
.
Similar.testimonies.are.coming.in.from.around.the.world...Pastors.have.made.themselves.judge,.
jury,.and.executioner...Rather.than.stand.for.the.sinner.in.love,.showing.them.the.way.to.Christ,.
they.stand.with.the.accusers.like.the.Pharisees.did.during.the.days.of.Christ...They.have.based.
their.teaching.on.the.extra\biblical.doctrines.that.this.religious.movement.have.produced,.and.
declare.judgment.upon.the.guilty,.telling.them.that.they.will.never.be.part.of.Gods.Bride..
.
One.woman.tells.me.that.they.were.instructed.to.divorce.her.new.husband,.and.then.she.might.
be.a.servant.to.the.bride.if.she.is.lucky...Instead.of.asking.the.accusers.whoever.is.without.
sin,.cast.the.first.stone,.the.pastors.have.proclaimed,.here.are.some.more.stones,.let.me.help.
you.punish.this.woman.for.her.sin..
.
Nothing.can.separate.us.from.the.Love.of.God...The.Bible.says,.I.will.never.leave.you.nor.forsake.
you,.and.that.the.blood.of.Christ.is.sufficient...
.
As.I.said,.I.am.against.divorce.and.remarriage...Families.are.separated...Children.are.caught.in.the.
middle,.and.their.lives.are.changed.forever...Some.relationships.are.never.mended...God.did.not.
intend. for. things. to. be. this. way.. . The. same. love. that. he. showed. for. the. woman. accused. of.
adultery.is.the.same.love.that.a.man.should.have.for.his.wife:.unfailing...
.
But.we.were.falsely.taught.that.remarriage.was.perpetual.adultery,.a.sin.that.could.never.be.
forgiven...We.were.taught.that.this.sin.was.somehow.greater.than.all.others,.and.that.the.power.
of. this. sin. was. greater. than. the. power. of. the. cross.. . We. were. taught. that. this. could. not. be.
forgiven..
.
Because. of. this,. we. find. partners. abusing. the. false. security. of. their. seemingly. unbreakable.
marriage...Women.refusing.their.marital.duties.to.their.husbands,.falsely.thinking.that.he.is.stuck.
with.her.and.can.never.leave...Men.who.abuse.their.wives.and.treat.them.like.servants..because.
he.falsely.thinks.she.is.unable.to.find.another.man..
.
What.the.pastors.do.not.tell.you.is.the.elements.of.Jewish.custom...Women.who.did.not.perform.
their. marital. duties. under. Jewish. custom. were. put. away.. . Divorce. was. permitted. under. the.
statutes.of.Moses,.and.according.to.Jesus.was.due.to.the.hardness.of.their.hearts...They.did.not.
have.this.love.that.Christ.displayed.for.the.Bride.of.Christ..
.
When.a.woman.was.put.away,.this
