Episode 24 – The significance of a seven-lettered name

William Branham stated that there was significance in names name ending in H-A-M.  It was also significant that Billy Graham’s name was six letters, the number of a man, but Branham was 7 letters, which was perfection.   Really?  

William Branham also stated that his ministry and Billy Graham’s were the only worldwide ministries of anyone with a name ending in H-A-M.  But he obviously did not know about Frank Boreham.

  1. Bramham was very narcissistic. He was the center of his own universe. I have found most of what he said to be in error.

  2. Frank William Boreham stated:

    “A man makes more noise in clearing snow off his front path than the sun makes in melting a million tons of it. God is so wonderfully silent because he is so wonderfully active”. F. W. Boreham, The Whisper of God.

    I propose that WB made such a noise in creating his own path of righteousness in brow beating the people while God continues to work in multitudes of human hearts silently unveiling the message of the cross as the stain of sin washes away.

    Jesus Christ has had more impact on the world than any other. His name did not end in H-A-M nor had seven letters. After leaving the message in 1992, I have continually realized the personal attraction WB generated and nurtured in soliciting followers. I cannot find a parallel in scripture.

    Think back on the messages we heard, week after week, year after year, where ministers hammered away with Bro. Branham said, Bro. Branham said. I recall the last few years before my message exit, I would feel a sickness in my gut to just hear his name repeated.

    This is not shared out of disrespect or hatred for Bro. Branham. I only point to the truth of loathing the perpetual Branham mantra.

    The last few years of preaching I deliberately refrained from using quotes and WB’s name and just preached the scripture. I was continually asked if I was still in the message. I suddenly understood the name of Jesus (English 5 letters) and scriptural preaching was an uncertain sound to message followers.
