A Historical Examination of the Doctrine of William Branham
From 1947 to 1965 William Branham preached over 1100 sermons, which have been preserved on magnetic tape for distribution worldwide by Spoken Word Publications. Recently these same sermons have been placed on CD ROM disks...and now accessible both in sound and print form with the aid of a computer.

At the very least, a cursory survey of this material will yield some extraordinary findings: among them, thousands of documented miracles and thousands of additional prophecies great and small. Together with these, of course, there is the preaching and teaching.

Over the years, it has not been the miracles or the prophecies which have been held to ridicule or questioned by informed sources. The proof of the authentic nature of this ministry is so easily obtainable and so extensive and forms so great a body of evidence that attempting to deny it would be futile and irresponsible.

William Branham's teachings, however, are another matter. This is where the greatest criticism has come in recent years. It is said that William Branham was indeed a mighty prophet, that the gifts God placed in his life to discern spirits, perform miracles, and receive visions are unprecedented in all of Church history, from the days of the Apostles to present. But by attempting to handle God's Word, conventional wisdom has it, William Branham entered into a ministry he was not called to.

In the Dictionary of Cults, Sects, Religions & The Occult, the three doctrines listed as taut by William Branham which are most offensive to historical Christian orthodoxy, are the following:

1)The Godhead
2)Serpent's Seed
3)The Malachi Prophet

In this book the Author refutes the claims that the teachings of William Branham are heterodox by addressing these three issues.

A must read for anyone interested in the subject.

Comments - End Time Message Believer
We must seriously consider these two thoughts [in regards to this book]. First, this age will have ONE Prophet-Messenger. Revelation 10:7, says, "When he (singular) shall begin to sound." There has never been an age where God gave His people two major prophets at one time. He gave Enoch (alone); He gave Noah (alone); He gave Moses (he alone had the Word though others prophesied); John the Baptist came ALONE. Now in this last day there is to be a PROPHET (not a prophetess--though in this age there are more women purporting to give God's revelation than men), and the infallible Word says that he (the prophet) will reveal the mysteries to the end time people, and turn the hearts of the children back to the fathers. There are those who say that God's people are going to come together through a collective revelation. I challenge that statement. It is a bald, invalid assumption in the face of Revelation 10:7. Now I do not deny that people will prophesy in this last age and their ministries can and will be correct. I do not deny that there will be prophets even as in the days of Paul when there was "one Agabus a prophet who prophesied of a famine". I agree that is so. BUT I DENY UPON THE INFALLIBLE EVIDENCE OF THE WORD THAT THERE IS MORE THAN ONE MAJOR PROPHET-MESSENGER WHO WILL REVEAL THE MYSTERIES AS CONTAINED IN THE WORD, AND WHO HAS THE MINISTRY TO TURN THE HEARTS OF THE CHILDREN TO THE FATHERS. "Thus saith the Lord" by His unfailing Word stands, and shall stand and be vindicated. There is one prophet-messenger to this age. On the basis of human behavior alone, anyone knows that where there are many people there is even divided opinion on lesser points of a major doctrine which they all hold together. Who then will have the power of infallibility which is to be restored in this last age, for this last age is going to go back to manifesting the Pure Word Bride? That means we will have the Word once again as it was perfectly given, and perfectly understood in the days of Paul. I will tell you who will have it. It will be a prophet as thoroughly vindicated, or even more thoroughly vindicated than was any prophet in all the ages from Enoch to this day, because this man will of necessity have the capstone prophetic ministry, and God will shew him forth. He won't need to speak for himself, God will speak for him by the voice of the sign. Amen. [Church Age Book]

Wolf in Sheep's Clothing
The Bible warns us to beware of people bringing false doctrine. WMB was the Great Deceiver of he 20th Century. Fascinating subject matter.

William Marrion Branham
Finally somebody had the courage to write about the greatest prophet of the twentieth century, unknown to many and despised by those who were once his followers. Great book. One I will have on my shelf, for sure.
