What Is Your Option “A” for Healing? (Part 4)

Click on following links for: Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3.

Almost all of the preachers in the Healing Revival (late 1940’s – 50’s) depended on their gifts of healing, gifts of faith, gifts of effecting of miracles,  plus their laying on of hands to produce healings for sick people. This was true for Kathryn Kuhlman, Oral Roberts, Kenneth Hagin, A. A. Allen and Jack Coe.

But this was not true for William Branham. He was a man of signs and wonders.

From his birth through his childhood until his salvation at twenty-one years of age, Branham had wild experiences. A whirling light at his birth. A voice speaking out of a rushing wind when he was a youth. A miraculous healing on his deathbed. A cross lit up on a shed’s wall at his salvation.

But none of those experiences matched the experience he had with an angel in 1946. The angel told Branham that he would have two gifts as signs for his healing ministry.

First, Branham would be able to detect diseases by a vibration in his left hand. The angel then instructed Branham that when he felt the vibrations, he was to pray for the person until the vibration went away. If the vibrations stopped, the person was healed. If not, he was to bless the person and walk away.

The second gift was a prophetic one. The angel said, “You will know the very secrets of their hearts. This they will hear.”

In the half hour visit, the angel told Branham about his healing ministry and that he would soon stand before thousands of people.

Without any money, preparation or proper clothing, Branham received a telegram the following Sunday evening from a pastor in St. Louis asking him to come and pray for the pastor’s daughter. Branham’s congregation gave an offering to him and a brother loaned a suit. He left later that same night on a train to St. Louis.

In St. Louis,  he saw the little girl at the pastor’s home, lying on a bed, her hands clawing her face and her voice hoarse from screaming. She had been tormented like this for three months.

Branham retired to a room to pray and seek the Lord. There he received his answer in a vision.

He returned to the girl’s room and waited for the conditions to match what he saw in the vision. When he prayed for the child according to the vision, the evil spirit left the child and she was healed. The young girl went on to have a normal childhood.

This was the beginning of the Healing Revival.

A few weeks later, Branham returned to St. Louis and held a twelve-day meeting. The tent was packed each night with thousands of people. A dead woman was raised up. A blind minister was healed; then the healings multiplied and grew beyond count.

For nine years, William Branham walked in a signs and wonder ministry. People were saved and healed by the thousands at his meetings.

…After it [the gospel] was at first spoken through the Lord, it was confirmed to us by those who heard, God also testifying with them, both by signs and wonders and by various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit according to His own will. (Hebrews 2: 3-4)

William Branham’s strength was that he walked in the spirit realm unlike any person since the Apostle Paul. So what was his weakness?

  1. If you check William Branham out, especially on the internet, you will find two camps of people. Those who idolize him and those who believe he was a false prophet/heretic.

    Hang with me on Branham until Part 5 because he is my springboard.

    This will be big deal for you and your calling.

  3. Larry,

    And why do you think so…I am a bit confused by that statement. Please explain?

    I believe you will have a signs and wonders ministry, along with your teaching and other parts of your calling.

  5. Interested Larry,
    In part 5 and in my dear sister Gladwell.

  7. Larry,

    I don’t know what to think…but I ought to TRUST HIM and not myself! If that is part of His will for me…then so be it!

    God bless you!
