Wilderness Experiences O f A Prophet

It is written in Matthew 11:7-10...

7. What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind?

8. But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in king's houses.

9. But what went ye out for to see? A Prophet? yea, I say unto you, and more than a Prophet.

10. For this is he of whom it is written.....

For the most part, God's Prophet's have been men of the wilderness. At some point in their peculiar ministries they have with-drawn into the wilderness away from civilization. And there in the rugged desolate country they are set apart for a special work. In the wilderness Almighty God fashions the character of His servants, making them obedient vessels, who, in season and out of season, are ready for the Masters use. They become "prisoners of the Lord". 

For most people the wilderness (dense forests, deserts and mountains) are only for the adventurous in spirit. It can be vicious to all forms of life - human, animal and plant - and in it, only the most hardy can survive. No soft disguises of civilization can survive here. Wilderness life hones the nature of it's captives until the true substance is exposed, be it good or evil. It is not a place for the foolhardy, or the faint-hearted.

But for a few, the Wilderness becomes a place of communion, for there is another wind that moves amongst the hidden canyons and dry river beds. Just as the Eagle waits to feel the breath of the desert beneath his wing tips, God's prophets retreat to the wilderness to await communion with the Winds of His Spirit.

The wilderness was the realm in which fiery Old Testament Prophets such as Elijah, Elisha, John the Baptist and others lived and moved in the power of the Spirit of the Living God. They mounted up with wings as Eagles, soaring into the unknown realms of God's will and Word. The rugged, arid conditions of the wilderness became the molding ground for prophets. Alone, they wandered through deserts, forests and mountains, awaiting God's command. Each was the chosen 'mouthpiece' of God, and when they spoke it was "Thus Saith The Lord" to their Generation.

It is not unusual that God's Prophet to this Last Age was 'mysteriously drawn' in his spirit to the wilderness. It was here that God communed with His Servant in a special way. In this page we will rehearse the Supernatural experiences which God's end time Prophet, William Branham, has had in the mountains. Most of the time these experiences occurred when he was alone in the wilderness, BUT there are other experiences which have been witnessed by brethren who happened to be with him at the time.

For William Branham the wilderness was 'home'. This is where he really felt 'at home'. He loved to hunt and fish - he was a true sportsman in every sense of the word. But his trips into the wilderness were not always for the purpose of hunting or fishing. Many times he would go to be alone with God. When other brethren have been in his company while hunting, the Angel has at times come near and instructed Brother Branham to move away from the others and go into a private place where 'he' could there speak with the Prophet without interruption. Without a doubt this generation has been witness to "An Open Vision Ministry".
