As I watched the video, I thought that it was produced by one of similiar mind – one seeking to connect the dots from the New Breed like Patricia King, Todd Bentley, and John Crowder to William Branham and ‘Scambach’, but I was surprised – it was actually produced not by one seeking to warn but by one seeking to claim descension from Branham and his ilk – Jeff Jansen.
I have to wonder why Bob Jones is considered among the New Breed, unless it is an attempt to cover up his past Kansas City.
Jeff has been in a mentoring relationship with Bob Jones for the past 10 years where he’s received impartation, revelation and understanding in the working of the miraculous. Bob serves as an advisor to GFM and continues to impart into Jeff’s life. Global Fire Ministries is an inter-denominational ministry aimed at equipping and igniting the Body of Christ for harvest.
Please note that the Assemblies of God removed the Latter Rain movement, William Branham’s movement, from their denomination.
In case you don’t know, William Branham’s doctrine is extremely dangerous,
He Opened the 7 Seals?
“And when the Seals are broken and the mystery is revealed, down comes the Angel, the Messenger, Christ, setting His foot upon the land and upon the sea with a rainbow over His head. Now remember this Seventh angel is on the earth at the time of this coming.” (The Revelation of the Seven Seals,p.74) This is proof that Branham was not the 7th angel as he thought.
At the same time he also said “Oh, I want to be numbered as one of them in that day, Lord. And I see the day approaching.” You see these Seals begin to . . . If God will open them to us. And remember, He alone can do it” (The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p.66) So we have confusion unless one wants to admit Branham was God there is no way to reconcile these statements.
It is Jesus who alone is worthy to open the 7 seals. He opens them according to the bible and this even has not happened yet no matter what Branham claims. A number of loyalists to Branham have tried to spin this saying the mystery was revealed to him, but he clearly said he opened because he was the angel ordained to do so.
“We find out that during that time I saw seven Angels in a form of a pyramid that swept down and picked me up. And I was brought east to open the Seven Seals for God.” (Commission By Seven Mighty Angels 1963 “Standing in the Gap” Jefferson, IN V-6N7 Sunday 63-0623m “80″).
“And the Angels took me into that pyramid of themselves – the mysteries of God known only to them. And now, they were the messengers that come to interpret that pyramid or that Message of the secret of these Seven Seals which lays with inside the pyramid.”
Manifest Sons of God
William Branham believed in the manifest sons of God doctrine, this became a main heresy of the Latter Rain movement, he claimed he too was a” god manifested in the flesh.” (not the God) He said: “When I told this to a man the other day, when this piece had come out about this man being healed, this same minister said, “They make a god out of you, Brother Branham.”
Well, he was a critic,… I said, “Is that too far from the Scripture to be that?” See? I said, “No, it isn’t.” I said, “Because Jesus called prophets gods.” See? That’s right. God … And they say, “Well, you people try to take the place of God.”
“That’s not too far out; that’s exactly what it is. That’s exactly! God manifested in flesh, just as He promised.” (THE MIGHTY GOD UNVEILED BEFORE US, p.20)
“In them days it was God in a man, His Son, Jesus Christ. We believe that. Not just a prophet, not just an ordinary man, ordinary human, It was God In Christ, God, in a man, the fullness of the Godhead bodily In a man. God, in a man; now, it’s God in men. See? The fullness of God in the Godhead bodily in His entire Church, manifesting Himself, fullfilling His Word.” (THE MIGHTY GOD UNVEILED BEFORE US, p.20 ).
Here is the Latter Rain teachings in Branham’s theology. We have a manifest Sons of God teaching in the Latter Rain, that is clearly unbiblical. The Church is not God nor the fullness of God, nor is any one person have God in them as Jesus did. This denies the uniqueness of Jesus Christ as the only begotten Son because it makes the Church on equality with him as many sons with the same nature.
