Below are links to articles on various doctrines taught by William Branham. Click on the picture or description to read the full article.

A prophet or not a prophet?. William Branham said that he was a prophet. Then he said that he never said he was a prophet. Then he said he was a prophet. Then he said he wasn't a prophet. Who is right in this argument, and why?

Revelation 10:7. William Branham taught that he was the angel sent to the Church in Laodicea, and the angel sent in Revelation 10:7 to sound the trumpet and fulfill "the mystery of God".

The Prophet and The Eagle. William Branham taught that a prophet is represented by an Eagle in the Bible. So, pick up your Bible and let's check if this is really the case.

A Gentile Elijah based on Matthew 17:11?. William Branham taught that he was Elijah the Prophet, and that a gentile prophet was promised. But is this what the Bible teaches?

William Branham taught that two major prophets never ministered on earth at the same time. But is this what the Bible teaches?

William Branham said he was born under a Nazarite birth. But was he really, based on the Biblical laws for a Nazarite?

William Branham hated Jezebels (except for Marilyn Monroe, whom he went to see in theatres). He said this was proof that he had an Elijah spirit. But is this Biblical? Did Elijah really stand up to Jezebel?

4:5

William Branham taught that he was the fulfillment of he was the fulfillment of Malachi 4:5. How does this work exactly, when an angel and Jesus both said that John the Baptist was the fulfillment of the Elijah Ministry, which is only mentioned once in the book of Malachi?

Zechariah 14:7 says that "in the evening time it shall be light." What does this mean, and does it really related to William Branham's ministry? Was the blast on Sunset Mountain super-spiritual, or was it just a sonic boom over Rattlesnake Mesa?

Acts 3:21 says that "The Lord God will raise up for you a prophet like [Moses]." William Branham said he received two signs in his hand, like Moses, so isn't William Branham like Moses? Not really, if you read the Bible.

William Branham believed that he was in the stature of the perfect man, and that he was the "wave sheaf" that was waved over the people, demonstrating that more like him would soon be appearing. Was this just arrogance?

William Branham said that discernment was the sign of the Messiah. But didn't Jesus say that the sign of the Messiah was sitting in the grave for three days, then resurrecting? What does the Bible really say?

Paul wrote that about a time when that which is perfect is come. William Branham claimed he was that perfection. What does the Bible really say?

SON
OF
MAN

Luke 17:30 says "thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed." William Branham taught that he was the revealed son of man. What does the Bible say?

John 16:13 says that "he will guide you into all the truth." William Branham thought that was his job. But where did he lead you, and what is the role of the Holy Spirit?

7

What is The Importance of a Seven-Lettered Name? William Branham thought there was a lot of spiritual significance to having seven letters in a name. Its interesting that Abraham is only five letters in Hebrew, and six letters in Greek. What makes English so important spiritually?

William Branham did not rebuke a woman who bowed before his picture. That says a lot about what he though of himself. Did you also know that he called himself the Holy Ghost, and told stories how he did things greater than Jesus? A lot of people expected him to resurrect after his death...and now you know why.
