I have an IMPORTANT QUESTION for Carolyn.
I am a brother in Christ with this one question for you as I believe it to be of utmost importance. From your time in the Illuminati, what do you know that the group knows of William Branham, the man God used to start the Divine healing ministry in 1946 that ignited many ministries of Divine healing post WW2, how much of a threat and impact his ministry had on them, and if they were involved with his death in 1965. I know that he was a great man of God and prophet that God sent to this generation, but I am interested in what the other side knew of him.
Although I, Loren, have written this article, both Carolyn and I have spoken extensively about these topics in general, and specifically about this email, and the following response reflects the thoughts of both of us.
Carolyn was never in the Illuminati and she is not a “former Illuminati.” Other people have erroneously put that out about her, but Carolyn has described herself as a “former Illumined One.”
An “Illumined One” is NOT the same as “Illuminati.”
Since this is a very common untruth that has been circulated about Carolyn, we’ve recently put up a video about this topic to give a more detailed explanation to people. You can watch the video here:
So to pointedly answer your questions, Carolyn doesn’t know what the Illuminati thought about him, because she wasn’t a member of the Illuminati.
William Branham wasn’t working for God. He was working for Satan. He was one of the people who were used by Lucifer (Satan) to further the charismatic movement, a religious movement that is demonic from its inception.
He was an occultist (a “Christian” occultist, but an occultist nonetheless), not a true, Biblical Christian. But don’t take our word for it. If you do your own honest research, you will see that his doctrine was absolutely unbiblical.
Here are some links to get you started:
This is a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED RESOURCE. Even if you don’t read it all, you can read detailed info about Branham, including sources, beginning on page 5. This should be enough to steer you away from Branham and people who align their doctrines with his heresies.
This is a short printout that gives a quick overview.
This is not the strongest source, in my opinion, but this article is short enough to quickly get the basics.
Again, not the strongest source, in my opinion, mainly because there is not enough commentary on this page to warn the reader that what Branham was involved in was not Scriptural! For instance, the writers mention about Branham’s so-called “angel,” but they failed to point out to the reader that the “angel” was a demonic being that Branham was channeling. If you don’t understand why I say that he was channeling a demonic being, go back to the basics of Scripture. (Also, Carolyn and I covered this topic in our book.)
Even still, this page provides a lot of details about Branham’s life that the discerning Christian will notice do not line up with God’s Word!
Carolyn and I also wrote a book that gives very detailed explanation from our perspective about how Satan has used the charismatic movement (a movement that was begun by the demonic themselves!) to infiltrate Christianity. Please read it.
Other very informative books to read include the late Kurt Koch’s books on the topic of the occult, including his insight on Branham. You will find a list of the book we recommend at the following page:
Scriptures for Contemplation
If you don’t read anything else that we’ve suggested to you, please, at the very least, read and study the meaning of these Scriptures!
The coming of the lawless one will be accompanied by the working of Satan, with every kind of power, sign, and false wonder, and with every wicked deception directed against those who are perishing, because they refused the love of the truth that would have saved them. For this reason, God will send them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie, in order that judgment will come upon all who have disbelieved the truth and delighted in wickedness.
For if someone comes and proclaims a Jesus other than the One we proclaimed, or if you receive a different spirit than the One you received, or a different gospel than the one you accepted, you put up with it way too easily.
For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their actions.
I am amazed how quickly you are deserting the One who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— which is not even a gospel. Evidently some people are troubling you and trying to distort the gospel of Christ.
But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be under a divine curse! As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you embraced, let him be under a divine curse!
Don’t allow yourself to be fooled by signs and wonders.
Don’t allow yourself to be fooled by the demonic who will appear as beautiful angels of light.
Don’t allow yourself to be taken away from the simplicity of the gospel of Jesus Christ and led astray by doctrines of demons.
I pray you come to know the Truth as you walk in submission to the will of the Father and in obedience to His Word.
