Did William Branham prophesy his own death?

From BelieveTheSign

Did William Branham bring about his own death in 1965 by challenging God? Was his death simply God's response to his comment that if he was in error, God should strike him dead?

Three times in the month immediately before his death, William Branham said that God had the authority to kill him if he wasn't telling the truth.

Within a month, William Branham was dead.

This also ties into the specifics of the Hagin Prophecy which Gordon Lindsay told William Branham shortly before he died.

Quotes of William Branham

And the Seven Seals of God, when It was opened there on the mountain, God will let me die right now at this pulpit if That ain't the Truth. And I foretold you, a year and six months before it happened, what He told me, "Go to Arizona," and what would happen out there in the desert. And there's men setting right here, tonight, was standing right there and present when the seven Angels come down. And even mag-... The magazine, Life magazine, packed the article of It. It's right there in the observatory, everything. Now they don't even know what It's all about.[1]


Excuse the expression; but that day, setting there in that woods (and God's my judge, and I could fall dead on this pulpit), when that Scripture had stumped me all my life... setting there that morning in the woods, and I was thinking on that, and that Voice spoke to me, He said, "That Scripture is like all Scriptures, It's true."

Why? That is Truth! God has the authority to kill me, before these people across the nation. Many of you here and in Jeffersonville, I can hear the tabernacle ring out now, "Amen!" because they're setting right there listening at it. See, because it's the Truth! What is it? It's when the God, by His sovereign grace; it happens! Outside of that, it won't happen.[2]
