In the days of his prominence, the 1950's, what Spirit-filled believer did not know [William Branham's] name?
Yet today, we may wonder, what believer does?

Robert Price in Douglas Weaver's The Healer-Prophet: William Marrion Branham
William Branham

William Marrion Branham's healing ministry skyrocketed him from a rural pastor to an international evangelist in the late 1940's. However, his visions and doctrine became increasingly controversial until his death 50 years ago on December 24, 1965.

Views on William Branham's legacy can be grouped into the following main categories:

  1. Most Christians have never heard of William Branham and have no idea he even has a legacy.
  2. Some older Pentecostals and "charismatic" Christians view him as a great evangelist and gifted healer who strayed from Christian orthodoxy in the latter stages of his ministry. They believe this is the reason for his obscurity today.
  3. His followers (estimated at between 500,000 and 1,000,000 people) believe him to be Elijah the Prophet, the fulfillment of Malachi 4:5. There are many different sects within William Branham's followers, although they all refer to themselves as believers of the Message of the Hour. Some of his followers believe that William Branham's every word was infallible, while others will admit that he did make some minor errors but he was infallible with respect to his visions, prophecies and his interpretation of the Bible.
  4. Some, as a result of facts coming out of research by us and other former message followers, view William Branham as a charlatan who was either willfully deceptive, or had untreated mental health issues.
