Views on his legacy can be grouped into three main categories:  
  
<mediaplayer width='800' height='500'>http://youtu.be/4qI8l0jTeeY</mediaplayer>

1) Some believe him to be Elijah the Prophet in fulfillment of Malachi 4:5.  There are two main groups of followers.  The first view his every word as infallible, while the second only accept his "Thus Saith The Lord" teachings as infallible.  
  
{|style="border-spacing:8px;margin:0px -8px"
+
2) Some view him as a great evangelist and gifted healer who strayed from Christian orthodoxy in the 1950's and 60's.

William Marrion Branham was a Christian minister whose healing ministry skyrocketed him from a rural pastor to an international evangelist.  His controversial teachings caused division in churches, particularly in the latter stages of his ministry,and opinions of his legacy are divided into three main categories:
 
 
1) Some believe him to be a major prophet of God.  There are two main groups of followers, although both believe his teachings to be inspired by God and consider him to be Elijah the Prophet in fulfillment of Malachi 4:5.  The first group views him as an infallible prophet who never made a mistake.  The second group accepts that he made mistakes, but holds that his "Thus Saith The Lord" teachings are infallible.
 
 
2) Many in the Pentecostal and charismatic movements see him as one of the leaders of the healing revival during the 1940's and 1950's, but also view him as a man whose ministry left Christian orthodoxy in its latter stages.
 
 
3) Others view him as a charlatan who deceived people, holding himself forth as a something that he was not.  People in this group often deny that he had a true gift of healing.

Examine it. Test it. You Decide.
(And, please, don't take our word for it. Search it out yourself.)

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 in 1965.

Views on his legacy can be grouped into three main categories:

1) Some believe him to be Elijah the Prophet in fulfillment of Malachi 4:5. There are two main groups of followers. The first view his every word as infallible, while the second only accept his "Thus Saith The Lord" teachings as infallible.

2) Some view him as a great evangelist and gifted healer who strayed from Christian orthodoxy in the 1950's and 60's.
