Here are some quotations from William Branham:
1. William Branham believed that Jesus Christ is God Himself made man:
I believe HIM to be GOD: Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today and forever. That He wasn't just a prophet, that He wasn't just a man, that He wasn't just a teacher or a good man, HE was the DIVINE JEHOVAH GOD living in a BODY of Flesh.
William Branham, December 22, 1963, in a message entitled, "God's Gift Always Find Their Places"
JESUS was GOD in the form of a man. That's hard for people to swallow.. He wasn't nothing less than God. He was GOD manifested in FLESH. He was the Creator in His own creation.
William Branham in a message entitled, "Laodicean Church Age - Church Age Book" Chapter 9
"The Beginning Of The Creation Of God." That is Who the Lord Jesus says He is. But those words don't mean exactly as they sound to us. Just taking them the way they sound has made some people (in fact multitudes of people) get the idea that Jesus was the first creation of God, making Him lower than Godhead.Then this first creation created all the rest of the universe and whatsoever it contains. But that is not right. You know that doesn't line up with the rest of the Bible. The words are, "He is the BEGINNER or AUTHOR of the creation of God." Now we know for a surety that Jesus is God, very God. He is the Creator.
John 1:3-"All things were made by Him, and without Him was not any thing made that was made." He is the One of Whom it is said, Genesis 1:1 "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth". Also it says Exodus 20:11, "For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day."
See, there is no doubt that He is the Creator. He was the Creator of a FINISHED PHYSICAL CREATION. Surely we can see what these words mean now. To have any other interpretation would mean that God created God. How could God be created when He, Himself, is the Creator?
2. William Branham believed that the Body of Jesus was God's own flesh:
William Branham, March 8, 1964, in a message entitled, "The Token"
That's exactly what HE was. "We handled God," the Bible said. I Timothy 3:16,
"Without controversy, great is the MYSTERY of Godliness, GOD was manifested in the FLESH."
We handled HIM with our hands. That body was God. Certainly was. He was God all over, in the form of a human being.
William Branham, March 3, 1954, in a message entitled, "Witnesses".
It wasn't the blood of a Jew. It was the Blood of God that saved us, not the blood of a Jew. He wasn't no man's Blood. He was the creative Blood of Jehovah God, Who created the Blood cell. He wasn't neither Jew not Gentile by Blood. He was God. God's Blood saved us.
William Branham, February 21, 1955, in a message entitled, "Christ", in Phoenix, Arizona
And there, God, the Creator, wrapped around Himself and created a Blood cell, the virgin not knowing any man. If you don't believe that, you're still in sin. She had nothing to do with a man. God, Himself... Christ was not a Jew. His Blood wasn't a Jew, neither was it a Gentile. It was God's Blood. The Blood cell come from the Male, and the Male was God. The Bible said we're saved through the Blood of God, no sex into it at all. There it is.
William Branham, January 21, 1963, in a message entitled, "Zacchaeus, The Businessman", in Tucson, Arizona
And you Catholic people, not to disagree with you, but call her,"Mary, mother of God," how could God have a mother? She was an incubator.
You say, "Well, the--the egg come from the woman." But the egg didn't come from Mary. If the egg come from Mary, then there had to be a sensation. Look where you put God. God created both egg and blood cell. He was neither Jew nor Gentile. He was God, nothing less.
3. William Branham believed that JESUS is the very PERSON of GOD:
William Branham, December 22, 1963, in a message entitled, "God's Gift Always Find Their Places"
So you see, JESUS was GOD. He was not NO third person, fourth person, second person, HE was THE PERSON, HE was GOD, see? He was GOD Immanuel, God come down from His glory, revealed Himself.
4. William Branham believed that GOD DIED in His SONSHIP FORM:
William Branham, June 14, 1964, in a message entitled, "Unveiling Of God"
GOD veiled in JESUS to do the work of REDEMPTION at the cross... GOD could NOT DIE in the SPIRIT; He's ETERNAL. But HE had to put on a MASK and ACT the part of death. HE DID DIE, but He couldn't do it in His God FORM. He had to do it in SON form, as a Son of Man on earth.
William Branham, July 24, 1962, in a message entitled, "Sir, We Would See Jesus"
Your BODY has to LIVE by DEAD SUBSTANCE for natural life, then you've got to have something DIE SPIRITUALLY to SAVE your SPIRITUAL LIFE. And GOD BECAME MATERIAL, FLESH, and DIED that WE MIGHT LIVE.
I JOHN 3:16 - "Hereby perceive we the LOVE [of GOD], because HE laid down HIS LIFE for us."
5. William Branham believed that GOD had NO BODY until HE became JESUS:
William Branham, July 31, 1960, in a message entitled, "Show Us The Father"
GOD is a SPIRIT. He had no hands till He become JESUS.He had no feet, arms, legs and so forth, till He become JESUS... HE come to a stable, borned over a manure pile. And Little JEHOVAH crying in a manger, little JEHOVAH playing as a boy, little JEHOVAH toiling as a man, He crossed His cast with us. GOD BECOME HUMAN. When JESUS CHRIST was born, GOD was HUMAN on earth... He toiled and labored and felt for the teenager. HE went through every temptation that we go through. GOD DID IT, that He might do His own judgment justice.
William Branham, June 14, 1964, in a message entitled, "Let Your Light Shine Before Men"
It come to a place that HE was TRANSFORMED. See? That means HE CHANGED His way. HE was GOD Jehovah. And God JEHOVAH changed Himself FROM a SPIRIT and BECAME A MAN. He's the SAME JEHOVAH GOD living in a BODY of FLESH.
6. William Branham believed in only ONE GOD; NOT TWO OR THREE:
William Branham, in a message entitled, "A Court Trial"
There is NO three or four Gods. THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD. There is THREE ATTRIBUTES of GOD: Father, Son and Holy Ghost, BUT they're NOT THREE GODS. GOD the Father was in the wilderness, as a PILLAR of FIRE. All right. GOD The SON: GOD the FATHER CREATED a BODY which was GOD THE SON, and LIVED in the SON. See?
William Branham, in a message entititled, "Seven Church Age Book"
If there were THREE Gods, you might as well baptize for a FATHER, and a SON, and a HOLY GHOST. But the REVELATION given to John was that there is ONE GOD and His NAME - LORD JESUS CHRIST, and you baptize for ONE GOD and only ONE... If JESUS is BOTH LORD and CHRIST, then HE (Jesus) is, and cannot be else but "Father, Son and Holy Ghost" in ONE PERSON manifested in FLESH. It is NOT "GOD in THREE persons, Blessed Trinity," BUT ONE GOD, ONE PERSON with THREE MAJOR TITLES, with THREE OFFICES manifesting those TITLES. HEAR IT ONCE MORE - This SAME JESUS is "BOTH LORD and CHRIST". LORD (Father) and CHRIST (Holy Spirit) are JESUS, for HE (Jesus) is BOTH OF THEM (LORD AND CHRIST). If that doesn't SHOW us the TRUE REVELATION of the GODHEAD, NOTHING WILL. LORD is NOT another ONE; CHRIST is NOT another ONE. This JESUS is LORD JESUS CHRIST - ONE GOD.
7. William Branham believed that GOD lived in Jesus Christ, Body, Soul, and Spirit:
William Branham, January 21, 1956, in a message entitled, "Inner Veil"
But the first thing YOU ARE a TRIUNE BEING, just like Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Father, Son and Holy Ghost is THREE TITLES going to ONE PERSON, which is JESUS CHRIST. And YOU'RE soul, body and spirit. But it takes THOSE THREE to MAKE YOU. With just ONE of them, you're NOT YOU. IT takes THREE to make YOU.. YOU'RE living in a HOUSE - SOUL, BODY and SPIRIT. THAT'S THE WAY GOD LIVED in JESUS CHRIST, both SOUL, BODY and SPIRIT.
William Branham, June 29, 1964, in a message entitled, "Mighty God"
Now in my HOME, I'm THREE different PEOPLE. In my home my wife has claims on me as HUSBAND. My daughter out there, she doesn't have any claims on me as HUSBAND; I am her FATHER. And my little grandson there, I'm GRANDFATHER to him; so he has no rights to call me FATHER. I am his grandfather, BUT I'm still the SAME MAN.
8. William Branham believed that JESUS is JEHOVAH even from BIRTH:
William Branham, January 28, 1962, in a message entitled, "Unbelief Does Not Hinder God"
You know, HE was once a BABY HIMSELF. Talk about a SIGN, Isaiah 9... When they asked for a SIGN, God gave them a SUPERSIGN: "A virgin shall conceive and bear a child. His NAME shall be called Counselor, Prince of Peace, Mighty GOD, the everlasting FATHER". IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN STRIKING - JEHOVAH, a BABY; JEHOVAH GOD, a BABY crying in a MANGER. It ought to have been striking: JEHOVAH, a TEENAGE BOY playing; JEHOVAH, driving nails as a carpenter. Oh, my! And ABOVE ALL: JEHOVAH NAILED TO A CROSS TO SAVE SINNERS, it should have been striking!
9. William Branham believed that JESUS is the Creator:
William Branham, December 6, 1960, in a message entitled, "Smyrnean Church Age"
And that great CREATOR BECAME my SAVIOUR, come down to a little BLOOD CELL, NOT through a man, but come virgin to a woman; and took thils little pollen from the woman, and FORMED HIMSELF A LITTLE HOUSE and LIVED IN IT. Oh, it - it ought to be striking. JEHOVAH over a pile of manure in a barn, crying: JEHOVAH in a MANGER of straw. That's an EVERLASTING SIGN.
10. William Branham believed that MELCHISEDEC was JESUS Himself:
William Branham, January 9, 1955, in a message entitled, "Melchisedec the Great Prince"
Now, MELCHISEDEC, the King of Salem, the Priest of the Most High, the King of Peace, which was NONE OTHER THAN THE FOREPART of the LORD JESUS CHRIST, and when HE met Abraham, He fed Abraham the COMMUNION and blessed him.. WHO WAS THIS PRIEST? NONE OTHER THAN THE INCARNATED LORD JESUS CHRIST. In His magnificent power He was the same ONE a LITTLE LATER ON, after HE met Abraham, and gave him, as being a COVENANT PEOPLE, the COMMUNION.
William Branham, August 22, 1965, in a message entitled, "Christ Revealed In His Own Word"
When Jesus was manifested in the Old Testament in a theophany, in the Person of Melchisedec, not a priesthood, but the Person, the Man... See? For this Man Jesus had yet not been born, but He was in a theophany so He had no father, no mother. He was God Himself. He was manifested in the form of a Man called King of Peace and King of Righteousness. See King of Salem, which is? He was Melchisedec. He had neither father nor mother, beginning of days of ending of life. See? It was Jesus in a theophany in the form of a man.
11. William Branham said that GOD in His "FATHERHOOD" office was the indwelling Spirit; while the "SONSHIP" office was His human flesh, Jesus.
William Branham, August 23, 1959, in a message entitled, "Palmerworm, Locust, Caterpillar"
Jesus said that God was with Him, "I and My Father are One." My Father dwells in Me. Not Jesus, and being one with God; but God was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself. And you Oneness brethren, many of you get off the wrong track when you try to think that God is one like your finger is one. He can't be His Own Father. He can't be.
William Branham, April 22, 1956, in a message entitled, "Show Us The Father It'll Satisfy"
Now, it's many times it's been said that no man can see God at anytime, the Bible said so. But the only begotten of the Father has declared Him. Philip, here was very inquisitive; he wanted to see the Father. Says here He said, "I've been so long with you, Philip, and you don't know Me?" Said, "When you see Me you see My Father." In other words, you see the Father express Hisself through the Son. Him and the Father were one in the sense that His Father was dwelling in Him, not Him doing the works; He was a Son, Himself, the immortal, virgin born, Son of God. And then in Him was dwelling the God the Father, expressing Hisself to the world, His attitude towards the people. See? Well, that's how Christ and God were one.God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself. Now, He said, "When you see Me, you see the Father, and why do you say, 'Show us the Father?'"
William Branham, April 29, 1956, in a message entitled, "Jehovah Jireh"
That's the reason people couldn't understand Him. Sometime it was Christ speaking... or was the Son speaking. Other times it was the Father speaking. He was a dual Person. He was one Man, the Son. God was in, which was tabernacling in Him. But what did He do? Did He go around saying, "I'm the Healer." Very contrary, He said, "I'm not the Healer." He said, "It isn't Me that doth the works; it's My Father that dwelleth in Me." And in Saint John the 19th chapter when He was questioned for passing a whole bunch of crippled, lame, withered, halt, blind people, healed one man laying on a pallet, the Father showed Him to go there and heal. Walked away and left the rest of them laying there, they questioned Him. A man packing his bed on the sabbath. Listen to what He said. Saint John 5:19: "Verily, verily, I say unto you: The Son can do nothing in Himself, but what he sees the Father doing, that doeth the Son likewise." Is that what He said? "I do nothing till the Father shows Me a vision first what to do.
12. William Branham said that if people can't believe the true REVELATION of the GODhead, they wont be able to understand the mysteries of the Bible:
William Branham, in a message entitled, "Seven Church Age Book" page 309
If people CAN'T SEE the TRUTH of the GODHEAD, but FIGHT it; they can't ever see the rest of the TRUTH because the REVELATION is JESUS CHRIST in HIS CHURCH and HIS works in the MIDST of the Church Ages.
