Who Was William Branham?
William Marrion Branham (April 6, 1909 – December 24, 1965) was a prophet of God, and historians consider him the father of the great healing revivals of the 1940s and 1950s.
Lacking formal education, William Branham defied what most thought was possible when he came from the poverty-stricken backwoods of Kentucky to traveling the world and preaching the Gospel. Directed by an angel, William Branham preached and prayed for millions of people worldwide.
Shunning popularity, he took a stance against denominational spirits that would divide and hinder the Body of Christ. His ministry was to turn the hearts of the children back to the faith of the apostles (Mal. 4:6). “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever” (Heb. 13:8) was his battle cry, and God vindicated his servant thoroughly. However, behind all the signs and miracles was a bigger work – God was restoring His Word.
