The earth is polluted beyond natural remedy and man worships everything but God. Those with no Bible knowledge can look around and see the chaos continues to get
worse. Man has no honour, violence is common place, corruption is the normal way in every institution at every level. Every perversion is common practice.
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent [without self-control], fierce, despisers of those that are good,
Traitors, heady [rash, reckless], highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; (2 Timothy 3:1-4)
Jesus said, “And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage [defacto relationships], until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came,
and destroyed them all.
Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.” (Luke 17:26-30)
The prophet Malachi says, “For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day
that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch…
…Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:
And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse. (Malachi
We see the conditions are the same as the time of Noah and of Sodom and God will destroy those who destroy the earth (Revelation 11:18). The earth will be burnt off
with “fervent heat,” and there will be new heavens and a new earth (2 Peter 10-13).
God is just and always sends warning before judgement. We have read that Jesus said it will be in the day when the Son of man is revealed, and how Malachi says God
will send Elijah the prophet before this time of judgement.
God never has worked through committees, organisation and human government. The Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.
(Amos 3:7) and again in Revelation 10:7 the Bible says, “But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should
be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.”
Many claim to be prophets and Jesus said this would be (Matthew 24:11 & 24, Mark 13:21). Why? Because God would be sending a genuine prophet and Satan counterfeits
How do we tell the difference?
Jesus tells us to beware of false prophets, and that we would know them by their fruits.
Moses also tells us how to identify a false prophet. “When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing
which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.” (Deuteronomy 18:21-22)
William Branham was a man approved of God. Recognised as the leading influence of the Pentecostal revival of the 1940’s and 1950’s, he lived an irreproachable life,
had an unparalleled gift and was vindicated by scriptural, supernatural events.
As a young Baptist preacher while baptising hundreds of converts in the Ohio river, a light settled above him and many of the large crowd heard a voice say, “As John
the Baptist was sent to forerun the first coming of Christ so are you sent to forerun the second coming of Christ.”
Through the years of his ministry many thousands verified the accuracy of the gift of discernment he exercised as he testified of Hebrews 13:8, that Jesus Christ is
the same yesterday today and forever. Dead were raised and sick were healed, often with medical verification. Many witnessed the supernatural events that were
common place in his life.
One of many photos showing a supernatural light was taken in the Sam Houston Coliseum by a critic and professional photographer. This was examined by G. Lacey examiner
of documents for the FBI, and found to be genuine.
The signs that followed William Branham’s ministry were not for our entertainment but were a vindication of the message he brought to turn our hearts back to our
Pentecostal fathers (the faith and doctrine of the apostles as taught in the Bible). Malachi 4:5 & 6
