Self-Published Miracles of William Branham:
Last week, we published a set of articles in a 1949 issue of Voice of Healing magazine describing some of the "great names" in William Branham's ministry. People were shocked to see that for a period of time, Gordon Lindsay, F. F. Bosworth, and William D. Upshaw partnered (and promoted) a different "divine healer."
One researcher pointed out the fact that William Branham was the Senior Editor of his own advertisement publication. While claiming not to have known former Congressman Upshaw prior to 1951, Branham published articles describing Upshaw's "healing of cancer" by Wilbur Ogilvie. Many, having seen this for the very first time, were even more shocked to learn that William Branham was referring to articles he himself edited in his sermons -- especially after having realized that most non-critical statements came from Voice of Healing.
While his position as Senior Editor is appalling, it certainly gets worse. In the 1948 issues of Voice of Healing, William Branham's title was "Publisher" - the person who prepares the work for sale.
Did William Branham purposefully create a publication company to churn out "miracles?"
When an unsuspecting person starts reading the April, 1948 issue of Voice of Healing, it is an entirely different experience without the knowledge that William Branham was the publisher. Every single page of the issue is filled with advertisement for Branham, and the unsuspecting person reads each article as though a third-party has "vindicated" his ministry.
But when one reads the article with the realization of self-promotion, it reads entirely differently. Beneath the title, "Voice of Healing," it clearly states that it is "An Inter-Evangelical Publication of the Branham Healing Campaigns."
His "Life Story," which has now been placed under skepticism after learning that a great deal of it does not match documented history, is woven through the entire publication. The unsuspecting person reads it as though Branham was "interviewed" for the magazine -- which, again, reads entirely differently from the informed viewpoint. As publisher, any self-promotion is not placed under the magnifying glass of a critical inspection; William Branham could literally say anything and everything he wished, whether true or complete fiction.
Worst of all, it contains an entire page of legal disclaimer. Like the fine-print on a bottle of questionable medicine that frees itself from any civil lawsuits when the drug fails, F. F. Bosworth published Branham's "legal disclaimer," entitled, "Why All Are Not Healed." Not only does Bosworth place the responsibility for failure upon the "patient," he also mentions "Community unbelief." Should you happen to live in a community that does not believe that you can be healed, the "divine healer" bears no responsibility for telling you that "YOU ARE HEALED IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST, THUS SAITH THE LORD!" (As Branham often did in his meetings).
In later publications, Branham apparently demoted himself to "Senior Editor" or "Editor," and Jack Moore held rights and claimed ownership of the publishing company. Did they realize that Branham's self-promotion was too obvious? Was Branham's demotion intentional?
Earlier this year, we discovered that Branham's mentor, Roy E. Davis, was self-promoting by creating "investigative journalism" of his own meetings and trying to force the Jeffersonville Evening News to publish it. And we learned that Shreveport, Louisiana, which held offices for the Voice of Healing, also held offices for the Original Knights of the Ku Klux Klan -- Davis was the Imperial Grand Dragon.
Did William Branham learn this strategy from Roy E. Davis? Did Branham create Voice of Healing for the sole purpose of self-promoting his ministry? Or did Roy Davis create it for the sole purpose of building his empire?
