Episode 50 - An interview with Pastor James Manuel of South Africa (Part 1)
James Manuel

Rod interviews former message pastor James Manuel of Cape Town, South Africa. James was in the message for almost 40 years.  He believed it, he lived it and he preached it. The message was all his wife and children knew and it was all he knew.

Since leaving the message, James has embarked on a mission to expose the lies, deception, fraud and corruption in the message wherever and whenever he gets an opportunity.  He has challenged message ministers all over the world to prove the message correct and as a result has had some threaten his life.

He has stated that he is willing to publicly repent, recant and return to the message if anyone can convince him with hard evidence that his claims are false.  Likewise, if you fail to disprove what he claims, are you willing to turn your back on the message and follow the Lord Jesus Christ?

  1. I have never understood this one thing about Branham Haters : why do you spend a lifetime just attacking, plummeting and cursing William Branham? If you don’t like him why don’t you just forget all about him and join the church you feel offers you comfort? But no. You cannot still on your seats! You are restless, you comb the sermons of William Branham with a toothpick to find errors, you visit archives and libraries painstakingly searching for evidence to discredit William Branham and brand ‘an impulsive liar’! Such hatred against a minister of the gospel has never been witnessed since the ministry of Jesus who was crucified by the Jews because of jealous! Leave Branham alone James Manuel et al!!!

    1. Hello Bro Boniface
      God bless you. I am sorry to see such an accusation about you. Can you please defend yourself as your reputation and standing is being attacked in front of the online community. This is especially important if you are a leader or elder in the church of God as they should be the husband of one wife. I look forward to your response and justification of your situation. If you do not respond your many contributions in defense of Bro Branham on this website will be completely devalued.

      1. It is well known that Boniface is a polygamist. He has defended polygamy publicly on Facebook and believes it is one of the mysteries revealed under the Seventh Seal.

        Here is a quote of Boniface Njiru from Facebook – “I can’t in my conscience deny what God has revealed publicly to the Bride through His Prophet Messenger. I know and am aware that there is shame and embarrassment attached to polygamy in modern times but I am willing to bear the shame of Christ…”

    2. I was a member of a small church that preached the message of Branham .My uncle was the pastor so I was close to everything he did and said. There were certain things that never set right with me about the “message” to give an example. Braham said Satan was co-equal with God one day. I do not believe that is possible . Hear oh Israel the Lord our God the Lord is one. Mark 12 -29.
      If satan was co-equal with God. Then that would make him a God also. In my heart and mind I know that there is only one God. There are other entities created by God for his purpose. To bring him Glory and honor. Satan was created for that very purpose.He was created an Angel to worship God. Why would God create an angel and make him equal to himself ? Isaiah 45:verses 5 to 7 —I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: 6-that they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else. 7-I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things. So you see that satan also called Lucifer was an angel created by God to worship and obey him .God never gave that angel equal power with him.???
      The bible teaches that he {Lucifer an angel} allowed pride to enter and made him think he could be like the most High.And it was because of that he was kicked out of heaven. But he was never
      co -equal with God…… When satan told eve to eat the fruit and it will make her wise like God ,that was were the deception came in.Because that is exactly what satan believed himself. That he was wise like God , and he was not.
      I do not hate Bro Branham at all. But I cannot accept his teaching.
      Matthew 16:6
      “Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.”
      Matthew 16:12
      “Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.”
      Galatians 5:9
      “A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.”
      And so because of this doctrine which I believe is false. I have to say I do not believe it comes from God,but from the imaginations of the heart of Branham.
      Luke 1:51
      “He hath shewed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.”

      And so that is why Jesus said
      Matthew 7:15
      “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”
      Matthew 24:11
      “And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.”

      Mark 13:22
      “For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.”

      So you see I believe from the bible that satan tried to decieve us just like he did in the garden with eve by preaching that he was once co -equal to God which is a lie.

      I invite you to tell me if and where I was wrong.And I will then humble myself and repent.

  2. Of course Boniface Njiru would say that wouldn’t you? I really wonder if there would be any ‘love’ to spare for Branham, had he not preached polygamy? Would there be any reason to be in the message Boniface?

    You are on this bandwagon for a very simple reason; you got licence to try to satisfy that insatiable appetite for women – the demon that drives you. It’s you, who’s combed thru and squeezed out of the message the heresy of “polygamy” you are championing.

    Of course there’s so much at stake for you, but certainly, on James Manuel, you gunning the wrong tree; the ones really to watch, are followers of Branham minus “polygamy”.

    They really loathe you, and what you stand for. A certain Gumbura would concur….

  3. William Marrion Branham taught and preached Jesus, believed in Jesus and died for Jesus. He introduced The Lord Jesus and to know him is life.
    Don’t spend a lot of time debating on Branham. His work is over and now it’s you.
    In the message, sirs, is this the time? He taught openly that don’t pay attention to a messenger, but the message. And what was the message. Jesus Christ revealed.

  4. I’ve tried to get in contact with you my dear brother. I know how easy a person can be influenced. People tend to crucify you if. At the end Satan influencing and to be accused not human beings. You said you need answers on things you and others try to understand. I believe your heart is still with The Message and the prophet, but your mind is confused. I will use only one word to explain my defense for Bro William Branham. It is something I missed sometime ago and I would say everybody miss. Is the word theophany. Bro Branham’s theophany, our theophanies causes so much problems to everybody. That is the answer to all the chirps. To everybody in and out of The Messase they must Read Job 1 & Job 38. I could not believe my eyes what God opened to me.

    The Bible said they shall hear The Truth and The Truth shall set them free.
