Sharing Truth with a Message Believer Part 3

Questions/facts about Branham/the message:

Touching the surface of 4 categories to start; prophesies, honesty, signs, healings, and doctrines.





  • Read Proverbs 30:5-6. We are not supposed to add to the Bible, but Branham teaches things like the serpent seed doctrine, and many other doctrines seem to be adding to God’s Word. Is that wrong, or does he get an exception… If so, why?
    • How Branham taught the Serpent Seed doctrine:
      • We are all made in the image of God, (Genesis 1:26-27, Genesis 5:1-2) and God does not show partiality between races, but instead desires unity and the gospel to go out to every ‘tribe, tongue, and nation’ (Deuteronomy 10:17-19, Colossians 3:11, Ephesians 2:14-16, Malachi 2:10, Revelation 7:9). 
      • So why did Branham feel the need to share this ‘hidden doctrine’ in Genesis that is not consistent with the narrative of scripture?
      • The serpent seed doctrine was used in the KKK as a supposedly ‘biblical’ justification for the racial prejudice and abuse. Roy E. Davis, a member of the KKK was Branham’s first pastor. It’s not a stretch to think that this is where he may have learned this doctrine. (
