William Branham - One Iota Right On The Dot:

When people first make their way out of the "Message," the mind control cult of William Branham, it's usually because they have noticed a prophecy that was not fulfilled as William Branham said it would be. It takes much time and research before they come to the sudden realization that William Branham did not have a single prophecy.

Those who knew Branham personally would suggest that he did have prophecy, some of which came true, but mistakenly consider random opinion with prophetic speech. Branham liked to give many opinions that started with the phrase, "Now you just watch," and those who knew him thought anything that came next would be prophecy. ... unless, of course, his opinion did not come to pass. In those cases, they were "just his opinion."

Prophecy is an entirely different experience. A prophet does not receive his vision through opinion -- it is directly through God. Should one single aspect of the prophecy be incorrect, you can be assured both scripturally and logically that the "prophet" is pulling your leg.

After the authentic identity pushes through the fog and critical thinking is no longer suppressed, the former Branham cult follower goes through a phase of concern for Branham's soul. What if he thought that he was a prophet? What if he had a mental condition, like he claimed, and his intentions were good? What if he wasn't trying to pretend to be a prophet to gain a following?

Throughout his recorded speeches, Branham lets us know that he, also, is aware of the true definition of a prophet. As with any mind-control cult, Branham taught a solid black-or-white authority of both teaching and prophecy. A teacher that is 100% with the Bible is a God-sent teacher. A prophet whose prophecy is "right on the dot every time," otherwise the prophecy is not from God.

With God-sent teachers that'll stay right with the Word, to the real Church, not move one iota no matter what an organization says. They're not connected with it. Prophets; not make-belief, so-called, but a genuine prophet has THUS SAITH THE LORD, and right on the dot every time.
