But Peter gives us hope in 2 Peter 2. These cult leaders, and the pastors who lift them up, will not last forever. New ones may rise, but old ones will fall.

 

All throughout the New Testament, there is a common theme of warning: False prophets will rise. False teachers will rise. But they will die.

 

BelieveTheSign.com, a Branham apologetic site, produced a video describing another prophet prophesying William Branham’s death before the event.

 

But William Branham’s death was already predicted, long before that prophet was ever even born. This prediction is also in 2 Peter 2:

 

But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed. And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.

 

Scriptures like this are commonly used to condemn those who point out William Branham’s failed prophecies or doctrines that are contrary to scripture. But it is a programmed response, and not one that matches the scripture.

 

It is the FALSE PROPHETS who will rise, NOT those who try to point others back to the Bible. It is FALSE TEACHERS who will rise, and they are the ones who are not teaching the truth. They are the ones, like Branham, who are proven to have lied. Peter says that their condemnation is from long ago, and their destruction is not asleep, or waiting. They will fall.

 

I pray that every mind that has been programmed by false teaching in these religious cults may escape and be pointed back to Jesus Christ. It is more than we are able to do; there is only ONE who can save. The only door into salvation is given to us by grace, and that door is only opened by faith in Jesus Christ.

 

Cults will place another door in front of it, one that can only be opened by faith in their cult leader. But the problem with that door is that it may never be opened, because the leader will be standing in the way with false teaching. Some in the cults will find a way through faith in Jesus Christ. Some will not.

 

Join with me in prayer that those trapped in religious cults will one day be led back to Jesus Christ. May God, who sent His only Son to die for our sins, grant their deliverance.

 

The lies and error that have been hidden from the people at the mercy of cult pastors are far to many in number for a single book. But we hope that the
