One of the most obvious signs of a false prophet is an inconsistent message. When God sends a message to His people, the message is an unchanging message — because God is an unchanging God.

Did William Branham's message match his own message? It would seem as though many conflicting statements could be trivial, but if you examine the entire message, what seems trivial becomes bound to fundamental doctrines. A messenger from God telling God's children that the acceptance of the Trinity is the "Mark of the Beast" does not lift prayers to the Father proclaiming the acceptance of the Trinity.

Yet William Branham did.

For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle?
1 Corinthians 14:8

Watch Russia!
Branham Now, if you'll give me one more night, if God does, I'll prove to you that communism is working straight in the hands of Almighty God to destroy the Roman. And remember, I say this as God's Prophet. The Russian empire will drop an atomic bomb of some sort on the Vatican City and destroy it in one hour. THUS SAITH THE LORD.
Branham, 54-0513
vs. Branham: What you fussing about Russia? Russia ain't nothing. They ain't going to win no wars. They ain't going to conquer no world. Communism isn't going to conquer no world. What's the matter with people? Can God's Word fail? Listen, this on tape now. To the world, I speak, or wherever these tapes may go. And to you people here, no matter whatever happens to me, you believe this. Russia, communism, isn't conquering nothing. God's Word can't fail. Romanism is going to conquer the world. Let's take Daniel's vision. That's the Word of God. "Thou, O Daniel..." "Thou, O King Nebuchadnezzar, is this head of gold," Babylon. "Another kingdom will succeed thee, which is silver," see, which was Medes-o-Persia. Another one was Greece, Alexander the Great. Next, come in, Rome. And there wasn't nothing said about a communism. Rome conquered the world. Jesus Christ was born in the Roman kingdom, and persecuted, His first time come here, by the Roman kingdom. And on His second Advent, Coming now, His Message is persecuted by the Roman denominations, which is the mother of all of them. And when He returns, He'll come back to wipe out that Roman kingdom, that the Jews has always looked for Him to come and wipe out the Roman kingdom. The Catholic hierarchy with all the denominations in the world, right now coming together as an organization, the confederation of churches organizing themselves together. It isn't Russia. It's Rome. THUS SAITH THE LORD.

On Wingless Angels
Branham I used to think... Mom used to tell me (Excuse me, Mom, that was before you knew better too.) that we'd have wings and fly around up there, you know. Why, I like to eat, drink, shake hands with people, fellowship. I thought, "Oh, my, that'll be finished then." Oh, no. I found out God never did make me an Angel. He made me a man, and I'll always be a man and never be an Angel. That's an error. God's got Angels, sure; He made Angels. And He made Cherubims with wings, and He made Angels without wings. When I used to hear these old songs, when I was a sinner and go in them places, about "brown-eyed angel awaits me;" I thought, "Oh, my, an angel..." And I found out that's a lie of the devil. Never was such a thing. See?

vs. Branham: Life magazine then packed that Circle of a Cloud and Light there that they could not understand, and don't know it yet. But here telling, "Go there and wait for these mysteries to be revealed," and here months before it happened, and then it happened at exactly the way He said it would do. Did you notice in that picture? Even that Angel on the right, when He was being materialized, coming down, with His wings back and His head setting sideways, there it is right there in the picture, just exactly. Months before it happened, told here, that, "He's going to bring the Body of believers together; to reveal, take up them lost ends."

Accepting the Mark of the Beast
Branham Now denominational brother, set still just a minute. Don't get up and walk out of the room, back out there on this radio, telephone hook-up. Don't turn your tape recorder off. Set still just a minute, and listen. You're born of God, you will. A trinity of frogs! A frog is an animal that always looks backward. He never looks where he's going; he looks where he's come from. See? Don't you see? Where was trinitarianism born at? Remember, "three unclean spirits," individual spirits. Are you getting it? [Congregation says, "Amen." — Ed.] Notice, they look back to the Nicaea Council where the trinity doctrine was born at, not in the Bible. There's no such a thing. They look back to the Nicaea Council at Nicaea, Rome, where the trinity was born at. Notice where they come from. Notice. And the trinity of frogs came out of an old trinity, give birth to a new trinity, their mother. What'd it come out of? A trinity, "the dragon," see, "the beast," and "the false prophet." A trinity, new. For when were these frogs come out? When did it? Notice, they was there all the time, but it wasn't manifested until between the Sixth and Seventh Vial, just before the Seals opened to reveal it. "For in the Message of the seventh angel, the mysteries of God would be known," all these trinitarian things, and false baptisms, and everything was to be made manifest. God help us to see what's Truth! And not think it's somebody trying to say something to...
Branham, 65-0725M

I feel that spirit resenting That, you see. I'm not speaking of myself, brother. I'm speaking of the Angel of the Lord that's in the camp. That's exactly right. Notice, a trinity! "The dragon," how many knows what the dragon was? It was Rome. "And the dragon stood before the woman to devour her child as soon as it was born." That right? What does "beast" mean in the Bible? Power. All right. "False prophet, a false prophet," a false, anointed one. See? Started where? This is "false prophet," singular. "False prophet," the first pope; and from there come out "the — the whore, and the mother of harlots," the whole thing. A false trinity was rising; not in the early days, wouldn't be made manifest in the early days, it went right on through with it. But when the Seven Seals be come, and opened those mysteries and revealed them; that's when "the frogs, three unclean spirits like frogs, come out to manifest themselves," a trinity doctrine against the Truth. See? Huh!
Branham, 65-0725M

Now, my precious brother, I know this is a tape also. Now, don't get excited. Let me say this with godly love, the hour has approached where I can't hold still on these things no more, too close to the Coming. See? "Trinitarianism is of the devil!" I say that THUS SAITH THE LORD! Look where it come from. It come from the Nicene Council when the Catholic church become in rulership. The word "trinity" is not even mentioned in the entire Book of the Bible.

vs. Branham: The King of Glory come down and tabernacled among men from the Ivory Palaces to be, take upon Himself, not the form of Angels, but as a servant of man. Clothed in humility, wandered about, no place to lay His head, slept wherever He could, scorned by the ones that He loved, and was made, finally, a bleeding Sacrifice. But He pleased the Father insomuch He said, "This is My Beloved Son; hear ye Him." Then suffered under Pontius Pilate, crucified, died, buried, rose the third day, setting at the right hand of God the Father, making intercessions now for we who've accepted the Holy Spirit, the third Person of the trinity. And in our hearts, tonight, He rules and reigns.

Admitting Failed Prophecy
Branham That's how these things happen. That's why I can stand and say to the world, "Has the Word ever failed?" God promised me, back there, as a kid. That's the reason. Say, "Aren't you afraid of failing?" I'm never. I'm always a failure. He never does. I don't speak my words. I speak His. That's the reason They're always right. See? That's the reason I ask the world, "Show me one time it didn't come to pass. Show me one time, by the thousands of things that He said." Not one time did It fail, and It never will, because It's God, not man.
Branham, 63-0412E Mark my word; write it in the pages of your Bible, for it's THUS SAITH THE LORD, "Remember, when we land in India, you're going to hear of tens of thousands times thousands being saved." The Holy Spirit has said it; I've wrote it here in my Bible; it's wrote in tens of thousands of Bibles right here, like the resurrection of the little boy. By a vision that He said, "There's three hundred thousand of them in there." And you see if that isn't right. There's how the Gospel's going to be preached just overnight. She'll just sweep like that from place to place.

vs. Branham: And someone was speaking this morning about the African campaign in the book, I believe Brother Boze and many the others, about a article I believe that someone read or something. It started the wheel a rolling or something. Well, however... I thought, maybe, I'd just give you a little testimony of something that happened, and if you read that article, and knowing what happened, I thought I would drop over to something of a testimony that happened in India. Maybe you're interested in our Lord's work, because we're just laborers out here in the harvest that's gathered in this morning for under the tree for a little rest and a time of fellowship together. And when... I had been very much constrained to go to — to India. And yet, as many of you might know, the Indian trip wasn't the success that it should've been, because I failed to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit, and never recognized it after He give me a vision to go to Africa first and then to India. And — and some of the brethren said, "Oh, just... We can't get Africa together, so... Brother Roberts has just been down there, so take off to India." And under the influence of my brethren, well maybe taught... But no matter what someone influences you, if God has told you something different... And now, judge it by the Word (See?), by the Word, and then go. You know, we're not supposed... As — as prophets together, we are to help one another, but never tell one another what to do. Many of you has read Second Kings 13, no doubt. Where what got in trouble there, and a lion killed the prophet because that he — he listened to the — a real true prophet, because God had commissioned him. God comes first always. And when... And then let that be... If you know whether it's God or not, judge it by the Word always. If it's not just exactly with the Word, be leery of it. See?

Healing From Satan
Branham And Satan has no power to heal. I give anybody anything they wish, that I could do, if you'll show me one Scripture says Satan can heal. It's not... "I'm the Lord Who heals all thy diseases," said Jesus. Now, now, they can't... Satan can't heal, it takes God, and it's upon the basis of your faith that God heals.
Branham, 56-0401M

vs. Branham: Now, the baptism with the Holy Spirit is a definite experience that a person must receive. Now let me kinda clear that up just for a minute. See? Now, many people have the — the idea... I believe it's twisted. And maybe right here to the church and to the church that's listening, there might be a question. Now, when I speak of not believing the initial evidence of the Holy Ghost is speaking with tongues (I — I do not accept that) I believe with God's help I can prove it in the Bible that that's wrong (See?), 'cause the speaking in tongues is a gift of the Holy Ghost. How many knows that? Divine healing is a gift of the Holy Ghost, and here Beatles are doing it. See? Satan can impersonate any of those gifts. Witches, wizards can speak in tongues and interpret it. The jungle lands, many times a wizard will speak in tongues, drink blood out of a human skull, and interpret unknown tongues.
Branham, 64-0823E
Errors In Discernment
Branham Now I challenge anybody to tell me, anywhere in the world, to these tapes, wherever they may go, show me one time that He ever failed to tell on the platform, or out in any vision or anything, but what was exactly the right thing, come to pass just as He said. Told every person just exactly what their troubles was, and all about it, and where they come, and all about what they should do. And every time It said THUS SAITH THE LORD to anything of healing, it happened that way. If you know one, let me know about it. I'll go at the tape and find out. It's never failed, in these twelve long years, or, fourteen years. It's never failed, because it can't fail. The sign was given by God.
Branham, 60-0911M

vs. Branham: You hear me? Let's pray now. Dear Jesus, bring mercy to this man who is so desperately in need. Thou did make the ears of man, and You made the whole body of man. And I pray that You'll heal this man tonight, and make him well. May the blessed Lord Jesus strike His power of healing across him tonight, by his faith looking up, and may he be made completely whole, I pray in Jesus Christ's Name. Amen. Now, just with your heads bowed just a moment. How long have you been this way? Hear me now? Can you... Amen. Two years. Yes. You hear? Yes. Amen. He can hear now. Let's say, "Praise the Lord." God bless you now. Go on your road rejoicing and be happy. Amen.

[Lady says, "Brother Branham, Brother Branham."] Yes? ["He isn't deaf, he has hardening of the arteries; he can't talk." — Ed.] Can't talk? Well, he's sure doing a good job of it now. [Lady says, "There are some words he can't say. he can say some words, but he can't say all words."] He's... Let me see him just a moment. I thought it was your hearing. [Lady says, "No, it isn't the hearing."]It is, he's hearing hisself. It was his hearing and it's his speech. Say, "I" [I] "Love" [Live] "Love," [Love] "Jesus," [Jesus.] Sure you can say it. Say, "Thank You." [Thank you.] All right. It's over now. You can go rejoicing. All right. Do you believe with all your heart?
