William Branham gives a false conversion story throughout his recorded ministry. In this story, he claims that his first wife and her family were against Branham following the Pentecostal movement. According to Branham, this did not please God, and so God smote Hope (his wife) and Sharon Rose (his daughter) dead in the 1937 flood.


But in 1935, a full two years prior to the flood, William Branham was assistant pastor in the Pentecostal Tabernacle in Jeffersonville, Indiana under pastor Roy E. Davis.

But Branham was not the only one involved with the Pentecostal Tabernacle. Though he claimed Hope was against his joining the Pentecostal movement, Hope was actually very active in the Tabernacle.

Even the story about Hope on her deathbed is fabricated. William Branham gives four different names for a nurse – a nurse that he claimed to have been a very close friend of the family.




Just then the nurse broke in. She said, "Reverend Branham, you come on out." She said, "Come here," to the nurse. And she said, "Evelyn," she knew her, a schoolmate. Said, "If you ever get married, I hope you have a husband like mine."
