God bless you in the mighty name of the Lord Jesus Christ!
Today I released our third podcast and it covered the subject of the Seven Seals.
Earlier this month, an anti-Message YouTube channel published six videos claiming Brother Branham plagiarized the Seven Seals from both Charles Taze Russell and Clarence Larkin.
Wrong! The Holy Ghost revealed the Seven Seals to Brother Branham.
As soon as I saw the video series, I knew I had to respond. Over the course of my pastoring, I had preached over 120 sermons on the Book of Revelation alone. By God's grace, I have read and listened to every single word Brother Branham preached on both the Seven Church Ages and Seven Seals. In my mind, the plagiarism accusation had to be false.
But just to be certain, I deeply studied Russell's work, who was the founder of the Jehovah's Witness sect. Here's his pic from Wikipedia:
I had never studied Russell's work before, so it was a valuable experience. Russell was a definite false prophet, falsely predicting Jesus' return on a couple occasions, but he did have the revelation about the Mother Harlot-Roman Catholic Church, the false, tritheistic three-person Trinity, and non-eternal hell.
There was an urgency on my heart to get this research published, so I felt led to make a podcast about these truths. Podcasts require audio only. Plus, I can edit podcasts very quickly.
If you'd like screen shots of Russell's claims about the Seven Seals, let me know. I would consider making a YouTube video with the visuals if enough people wanted to see them. Here's the website if you want to search Russell's teachings yourself: https://archive.org/details/TheFinishedMystery/page/n57/mode/2up
Russell's book is organized very simply. Each chapter of the book correlates to the chapter from the Book of Revelation that he is commenting on. So, you can flip to chapter 6 to read his interpretations of the first six Seals.
Please share this podcast with anyone who has questions about Brother Branham's ministry and is open to hearing both sides of the subject. Every couple weeks I get feedback that the videos defending Brother Branham have been helpful.
For example, the following comment was about the Brown Bear Vision video I published last week. A man named Wallace said the video put to bed any doubts about the accusations against Brother Branham. Praise the Lord Jesus! Here it is:
"Very good, thank you for your research. My family has been greatly blessed by the Lord through the prophet. This has put to bed any doubts about these accusations." - Wallace
This comment rejoiced my heart because the Holy Ghost is the only Dissolver of Doubts! The Spirit of God in Daniel dissolved all doubts:
Forasmuch as an excellent spirit, and knowledge, and understanding, interpreting of dreams, and shewing of hard sentences, and dissolving of doubts, were found in the same Daniel, whom the king named Belteshazzar: now let Daniel be called, and he will shew the interpretation. DANIEL 5:12
Regarding the anti-Message accusers who made this malicious video series, I came to this conclusion. They are either
(a) honest, deceived, and lazy researchers, or
(b) they are dishonest deceivers trying to purposely destroy the godly character of God's prophet, William Branham.
I will pray for their correction and genuine repentance.
Lastly, although the enemy keeps coming in like a flood, the Spirit of God continues to raise up a standard against him.
God's truth will prevail! Jesus' truth keeps marching on!
Keep marching in truth,
