Though William Branham claimed to have accepted the New Covenant of Grace, there were several Old Covenant Laws that he tried to uphold and enforce. In some sermons, William Branham claimed that when God “magnified the Law,” the Bible meant that God “made it greater.”


One of those laws from the Old Covenant was that of children who were born out of wedlock. Branham claimed that a “bastard child” would not make the kingdom of heaven for fourteen generations:


And how the sins of the people would be visited...


We went back in Deuteronomy and showed that a illegitimate child, bastard child, could not even enter the congregation of the Lord for fourteen generations. That was under the law, and Christ come to magnify the law. How much more is it now?




What William Branham DIDN’T tell his congregation was that he was less than fourteen generations from a bastard child. Nancy Branham, William’s great-­great grandmother bore Lewis Branham, (his great grandfather) out of wedlock.
