Finding Comfort In Grace

Seek The Truth is dedicated to God's Children around the world who have been set free or are seeking freedom in Christ. There is comfort in knowing that you are not alone, and that there are others, just like you, who have been bruised and broken in their journey.

The God we serve is real. The open arms of the Savior are reaching out to give you comfort, and those same arms hung on the cross as He suffered and died in your place. The Father loves His children enough that He sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, to die for you. Christ loves you enough to offer his own life so that you can find yours.

The walls of the denomination of faith that held us bound for so long are crumbling. Though it was largely unexposed for so long, the religious following of William Marrion Branham has been taken out from under the shadows and placed under the light of God's Word. And the darkness cannot abide in the light. What was once hidden has now been made known, and the exodus has begun.

The page is turning, and we are entering into a new chapter of our lives. We are the children of the King, and are seeking to learn more about Him. Join us as we compare the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the teachings of the following of William Branham and its New Age Pentecostal roots. Pray with us for those that are still under spiritual bondage, give support to those that have been set free and are now standing firmly upon the Word of God, and lift up praise to the One who offered Himself as the sacrifice to offer salvation to any who will believe on His Name.

Examining The Ministry Of William Marrion Branham

Creation

According to William Branham, the creation story in the Bible was written in symbol, and the full truth was hidden in mystery. Branham taught his followers to believe that Jesus was simply an angel, equal to Satan, and God's creation did not include the female in the Garden. The woman, according to Branham, was designed by Satan to deceive, and was nothing more than a bi-product of man. Because of this design, Branham taught the original sin as being the fault of Eve instead of Adam -- though she was deceived, she was constructed by Satan for that purpose.

While he promoted the idea that Irenaeus was a "messenger" sent from God, and Irenaeus condemned the doctrine, Branham's version of the creation story included teachings found in Kabbalah regarding the the original sin. Though the book of Genesis describe the trees as being good "for food," Jewish mysticism describes the original sin as being sexual intercourse between the serpent and Eve. According to Kabbalah, this union between man and beast produced the "evil son (Cain), while Adam's relations with Eve produced his brother (Abel). Without disclosing the origin of this doctrine, William Branham promoted the idea that this teaching was fundamental for the faith of the "Bride" during the last days.

To choose this doctrine, you must accept the Gnostic idea that God created hidden meanings between the lines of scriptures, ultimately denying Paul's words in 2 Corinthians 13, "Our letters have been straightforward, and there is nothing written between the lines and nothing you can’t understand." Paul was very clear in his writings that faith in Jesus Christ was the only key that unlocks the door to salvation, and that we are to look to the blood of Christ instead of the bloodlines of mankind. 

And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; 
Acts 17:26 

As I urged you when I went into Macedonia, stay there in Ephesus so that you may command certain people not to teach false doctrines any longer or to devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies. Such things promote controversial speculations rather than advancing God’s work—which is by faith 
1 Timothy 1:3-4


Genesis 1 26-28 tells us that woman was in the original creation, and that God was her creator. Before the original creation was instructed not to eat from the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, they were instructed to mate and reproduce -- raising several questions in Branham's teaching that Eve learned about procreation through the sinful desires of the serpent: 

Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground. So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” 
Genesis 1:27-28


At the same time, while referring to the "fruit" and the "eating of the fruit" as sexual intercourse, you must accept the idea that God allowed Adam to "eat" of any of the other "fruits" in the garden -- raising several questions with regards to Adam and the other animals in the garden: 

The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it. And the Lord God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.” 
Genesis 2:15-17
Ultimately, you are given a choice: To believe that the Bible is correct, and that the fruit was "good for food," or that the Bible was incorrect, and filled with sexual innuendo. Branham chose the latter, claiming that verse six of chapter three did not actually mean "food," but rather, "sexual intercourse."

When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. 
Genesis 3:6


Interestingly, if you follow Branham's teaching with regards to the eating of fruit, you are placed into a strange situation when you reach the end of the Bible. In the book of Revelation, the reader who has been trained to believe that the "eating of the tree" was sexual intercourse must ask themselves questions as to the nature of the "eating" of the tree of life:

Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God. 
Revelation 2:6-8

The Seeking Truth Band

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
Colossians 3:16


For those burdened with the thoughts of having lived a life that strayed from the Gospel, there's encouragement and hope through songs of praise. There is power in music, power to love, encourage, and protect. 1 Samuel 16 tells how David played the lyre to encourage Saul, and while doing so, drove a harmful spirit away from his presence. That's the power of worship!
