William Branham gave three different recorded birth years, two of which were false and tied to “spiritual events.”


His actual birthdate (confirmed by his own handwriting on his marriage certificate and by the United States Census) was April 8, 1908.































The birthdate Branham would ultimately choose was April 6, 1909, using a story that would lead a believer to think that he was Jesus Christ Himself made manifest among us.


And she said, "You were born onApril the 6th, 1909, at five o'clock in the morning." I said, "That's right." I said, "How do you know that?"I said, "Tell this sailor here when he was born." Said, "I can't." And I said, "Why? How you know?"


Said, "Look, sir." She said, when she begin to talk about this astronomy now, and she


said, "Every so many years..." Said, "You remember when the morningstar come, that

coming to see Jesus." I said, "Yes.” And she said, "Well, whatwas wise man?" "Oh," I


said, "they were just wise men, all I know." She said, "Well, what is a wise man?" She

said, "The same thing that I am, an astrologist, 'stargazer' they call them." And she


said, "You know, before God does anything in-­-­in the earth, He always declares it in the


heaven, and then on the earth."

And I said, "I don't know."
