|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 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, although they are refer to themselves as followers of the Message of the Hour. 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.
3) Some view him as a charlatan who was either willfully deceptive or had untreated mental health concerns.
The purpose of this website is to provide the most comprehensive information available on William Branham's life and ministry, his claims, the beliefs of his followers, and the criticisms of his detractors.
We pray that the contents of this website would speak to your soul, and lead you closer to Jesus Christ.
