Branham, Organized Crime, and "Little Las Vegas"

John Collins04/19/2013

Video available here:

In 1907, a man by the name of William Branham was born.  (1908 or 1909, depending upon which of the three versions he told of his own life that you believe.)  

Born in a small town in Kentucky, the family was quickly moved to New Albany, Near Jeffersonville, which would quickly grow in infamy.  Casinos, betting parlors, night clubs, and even a dog track were present, giving the town the nickname "Little Las Vegas,” and the likes of Al Capone and John Dillinger would be seen visiting the gambling town.  The neighboring city, Clarksville, IN, was nicknamed “Little Chicago,” though only one small casino was established.  During this time, Branham claimed to have run horse races, and is said to have worked directly for [Blank Spot On Tape – Ed]. 

Between the gambling arenas and the horse races, William Branham met [Blank Spot On Tape – Ed] a man who would later go by the alias of Pat Tyler.  Tyler, described by Branham as a “converted gangster,” “outlaw,” “gunman,” or “killer,” would follow Branham around for the latter part of his ministry, and Branham would [Blank Spot On Tape – Ed] his identity by claiming he was either from Arkansas, New York, or some other state.  Tyler was often mentioned in the service sitting next to Gene Goad.

Though he would later tell that his father was wanted for murder, if you search the newspapers in the surrounding states, you will find that a man by the name of [Blank Spot On Tape – Ed] and his mother Ella were doing whiskey runs during prohibition, and it would seem that Louisville’s ties to alcohol may have [Blank Spot On Tape – Ed]

During his younger years, Roy E Davis, the minister that ordained William Branham’s ministry, came to Jeffersonville to establish the White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, as he did in Texas.  He [Blank Spot On Tape – Ed] both had the same doctrinal teaching.  Davis was called to a senate hearing on the White Knights, during which he said [Blank Spot On Tape – Ed].

During the chaos of the flood of 1937, many deviant people involved with the mob saw a great opportunity.  William Branham [Blank Spot On Tape – Ed] and both she and Branham’s daughter died.  Because [Blank Spot On Tape – Ed] and Sam Adair, Branham could never remember the story he invented [Blank Spot On Tape – Ed] got the name of who he claimed to be a long-time friend of the family, the name of the nurse who stood by the bedside, wrong on multiple occasions.

Prohibition was extremely profitable for organized crime.  They had a product everyone wanted, many would buy, and few would sell.  But after prohibition, profits tanked.  The only way to remain profitable was to [Blank Spot In Tape – Ed] through religious organizations and channel the funds to other growing countries.

But many caught onto this scheme.  Two homosexuals, Gene Goad and Leo Mercer, found out [Blank Spot On Tape – Ed] with the prayer cards, and Branham said that they had set up their “little FBI agency.”  So they quickly became part of the growing profit train that would later be known as [Blank Spot On Tape - Ed] Spoken Word Recordings and then Voice of God Recordings. 

Branham mentions having a button on the pulpit that would pause recording during sermons, but for the ones that he missed [Blank Spot On Tape – Ed] Gene and Leo.  There was only one problem:  Gene and Leo were [Blank Spot On Tape – Ed] held onto the originals.  The two had information that if made public, would bring the entire cult to a screeching halt!


…annoying, isn’t it!


I’m sure that each one of you would LOVE to know what is behind those [Blank Spot On Tape – Ed] blocks – even IF YOU ARE STILL IN THE CULT!   Why?  Because the elements of the sentence structure required to make full meaning of the sentences have been taken out!

If I were to take this simple paragraph: 

My wife and I took our kids to the park.  We had a great time, and the kids really enjoyed playing on the slide and the swings, but our 2 year old loves to be mischevious.  He started throwing rocks at cars passing by, and I looked at my wife and said, “He’s going to kill someone!” I had to stop him.

Then if I were to “edit out” some of this sentence to say something like this:

My wife and I [Blank Spot On Tape – Ed] at cars passing by [Blank Spot On Tape – Ed] going to kill someone!”  I had to stop him.

This fun, loving story of a family’s day in the park [no pun intended] completely changes to seem evil and dangerous!  Why?  Because the sentence structure has been modified.

Some might blame the many edited out snips in the recordings of William Branham on the homosexual tape boys, but remember – Branham said that he could pause the recording!  What he said in person is NOT what the poor followers spent their hard-earned cash to purchase!

The funny part is that someone replaced the switch to stop recording with a light switch.  It messed him up, so he had an operation in place to stop recording:

Now, I--I just wanted to say that, and I thought this thing here controlled those tapes, but it doesn't, and this is a--a desk light.  And I thought the tape controller used to be here. But I was told to just make motion to the brethren in the--in the room there, the recording room, and they'd know when to stop tapes and when not.
--Branham, 63-0324

The climax to the sermon “The Seventh Seal,” was altered before final production, and it even is described as such in the beginning of the translation.  Did Branham really try to limit God’s voice from his own followers around the country?

Not to mention that the “handwriting on the wall” he claimed to have witnessed was nothing more than a light shining on the church ages!  How hard is it to shine a light on the church ages when you have a button to turn the light on!

Then, on top of that, we have two sexual deviants in control of the rest of the content, and WHO KNOWS what they decided to do with it.

Since then, the sermons have been translated in many languages.  Teams of people have scraped through these tapes word-by-word for what the headquarters claims as an operation to make sure that we get “every word the prophet said.”

Yet, in between the 1997 version of “The Table” and the latest release, we have an additional 400-500 “blank spots,” some of which are on the same words that we had before!  What was underneath?

I really don’t know why Branham decided to pause the recording, or why Gene & Leo held control of the original copies, or even why those copies were modified before the final release.  Frankly, since we see in the letter that William Branham sent to Lee Vayle that Branham was manipulating the content before it hit the books, wouldn’t it have been better to have the full original intact? 

All speakers make mistakes.  Most speakers that take their product to market will keep all revisions of the content.  Only the mischievous will hide the originals and only keep the final release.  But then, only the wolves in sheep’s clothing will pause the recording before it even hits the original.

If this is truly the “Voice of God” as they claim, then “the prophet” should not shut God’s mouth.

What if Ezekiel stood before the King of Tyre and said,

“Son of man, say to the ruler of Tyre, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says:

“‘In the pride of your heart you say, ‘I am a god; [Blank Spot On Tape – Ed] By your great skill in trading you have increased your wealth, and because of your wealth your heart has grown proud.’”

Quite frankly, the comparison is astounding.  This sentence makes the king of Tyre sound like an idol.  …but then, so did all the snipped out corrections to Branham’s ministry! 

It is very easy for the pastors to have said all these years, “This is God’s word for this day.  God carefully made no mistake in preserving this message for us.  This is the ‘stored up food!’” 

The ‘message’ was preserved all right … but by two homosexual men who sexually abused those trapped spiritually in their compound!

According to Luke 17, Branham did not believe the Bible anyway.  Otherwise, there would have been no need for a pause button on the pulpit. 

“For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open.”
– Luke 8:17

It is astounding how many similarities we see between the cult of William Branham and the Corinthians.  Maybe this is why Ern Baxter said that it had turned into “Corinthian worship!”

In 2 Corinthians 4, Paul speak out against those who press the pause button on the recording, or hire two homosexuals to snip out what the speaker missed:

The Light of the Gospel

Therefore, having this ministry by the mercy of God, we do not lose heart.  But we have renounced disgraceful, underhanded ways. We refuse to practice cunning or to tamper with God's word, but by the open statement of the truth we would commend ourselves to everyone's conscience in the sight of God.

So tell me:  If William Branham REALLY was the mouthpiece of God for what you call “this age,” why did HE tamper with God’s word?  Why did he get two homosexuals to tamper with God’s word?  Is a pause button to the multi-million dollar recording industry of William Branham REALLY an “open statement of truth?”

And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing.  In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 

We have been accused many times of having “blinded eyes,” because we have exposed the false prophet by his own words and actual recorded history.  But when it comes right down to it, WHOSE eyes are blinded?  The ones who realized that this guy lied about himself more than he told the truth?  Or the ones who believe the lies that have been recorded with a “pause button?”

For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake.  For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

Paul had the Light of Christ shining through him, and he did not have a “pause button”.  He knew that what he was proclaiming did not come from himself, but came from Jesus Christ our Lord.

Whose “light” did William Branham have?  You are faced with two possibilities:

1. He had God’s light, but decided to cover portions of it with his little “pause button,” which makes him a hinderance to the Word of God. 

2. He had some demon’s light, and the demon is the one controlling what got fed to the people and what did not.

Which do YOU think it is?
