We have had several contact us from other countries around the world, concerned for their friends and family after realizing that the many claims by William Branham have proven fiction. These people are eager to have some material they can use to witness to others and help lead many out of a cult and into the Grace of Jesus Christ.
To date, this has proven difficult. If there were one single fictional story or one single failed prophecy this might be quickly possible, but with each new day we find a new aspect of the ministry of William Branham that turns out to be complete fiction.
Believe The Sign (www.believethesign.com) has come up with a brilliant idea: Only take the major points, limit their statements around 40 words, and translate that single statement into other languages for all to read.
This is doable. We can all participate and spread the truth into other countries. If you are willing to help with translation, please contact us. (Preferably on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/SeekYeTheTruth for faster communication than email.)
Believe The Sign has taken the first and biggest milestone in William Branham's fictional ministry: The Ohio River Baptism. Rather than go into great detail of how similar Branham's story is to that of William Sowders, or go into detail of how William Branham was claiming a completely different commission story in a pamphlet he promoted in 1945, Believe The Sign has focused on one single clipping of a newspaper article.
William Branham claimed that there were over 500 people baptized during this "Great Commission," and that the newspapers "packed an article" describing how the voice of God boomed through the heavens as a light shone down on the head of William Branham -- much like the light shone on Jesus Christ.
It has baffled many for years, even those trapped inside the cult, as to how the world could possibly reject William Branham's ministry when God Himself shone a light on this mans head and spoke from the heavens telling the people to hear his voice. The only other time in recorded history was in the Bible, when the Father shone a light down on the head of Jesus Christ and told the people to hear the voice of Jesus Christ.
It has also puzzled people who study the scriptures, even in the cult, because the voice did not tell the people to hear the voice of John. The voice spoke of the one coming that we are not worthy to loosen the shoes of His precious feet.
The clipping of the newspaper article unravels the fiction through this entire tall tale. There were not 500 people. There were not even fifty. There were not even enough people to amount to the number given by William Branham in his testimony before the mythical voice spoke through the heavens. There were fourteen -- total.
And they did not return to the Branham Tabernacle as William Branham claimed. Believe The Sign did not comment on how the tabernacle did not yet exist, or how William Branham was the pastor of a Pentecostal Tabernacle instead of a Baptist Church prior to this event. They simply posted the article showing that they were in a tent meeting held on Eighth and Pratt street, a few blocks from Eighth and Penn street where the Branham Tabernacle sits today.
No mention of a light shining through the heavens. No mention of a voice speaking down from the heavens as the Father did for Jesus Christ. No mention of any single aspect of the story that William Branham claimed the newspapers printed when he said that the story was "packed clean up into Canada."
The message translated is very simple:
Fourteen conversions are report-
ed in a tent meeting conducted at
Eighth and Pratt streets by the
Rev. William Branham.
