In His PresenceJohn Collins4/12/2013 6:22:00 PMI've read this verse many times, but missed this one part: "in his presence."
"And the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who *****in its presence****** had done the signs by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped its image. These two were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulfur."
...now think about that "angel" on the platform with William Branham. Think about the spirit he saw in his bedroom that looked like "Alley Oop." Think about the angel with the turban, the angel with the long gray beard, and the angel that looked like Avak the Armenian.
...after that, think about the angel on the platform that William Branham PRAYED TO in front of the people.
Whose presence was William Branham in? It wasn't Christ, because the angel he prayed to, according to the prayer, was not Christ!
