Stephen Powell: “William Branham’s Coat of Arms Is Being Passed”
Apr 21, 2017 THE ELIJAH LIST
From the desk of Steve Shultz:
This is a GREAT WORD about the LORD bringing back the anointing which was on William Branham.
Only this time, the anointing is not for only one man (and this is only my take on this word), but for the masses of obedient friends of God.
Certainly into the many hundreds, but perhaps even to many thousands, will this gift be poured out, so it can be further spread throughout the globe.
Yet, this dream comes with a warning. It is a warning probably mostly to people approaching my generation (I’m 61 years old) but possibly for leaders of any age…
As with any new “strange” works of God, those who were in a previous move of God are nearly always at least TEMPTED to label God’s next move as being from the devil, himself.
This is a warning not to do that quickly, but to patiently watch, listen, pray, and discern if God might actually be demonstrating the next chapter in the Awakening of HIS Body on the face of the earth. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List go here.)

“William Branham’s Coat of Arms Is Being Passed”
Stephen Powell, Fort Mill, SC
According to history, a coat of arms is the principal part of a system of hereditary symbols dating back to early medieval Europe, used primarily to establish identity in battle. Arms evolved to denote family descent, adoption, alliance, property ownership, and, eventually, profession. The Lord is currently passing a very precious coat of arms to the current rising glory generation right now! God is passing a particular ownership, a profession, and a heritage in the spirit right now! Listen intently to what I’m about to say.
“God did it through this man’s life and ministry, even here in America, and he’s doing it again in our day. He’s passing William Branham’s coat of arms!“
Recently, in a series of visions, I was taken through heavenly places and shown many things. In the last encounter I found myself back in my natural state of mind laying on my bed in a hotel room in West Virginia. As I lay there I heard the Lord say, “I am passing the coat of arms which William Branham wore.” I then perceived a vision of the Lord stretching over a warrior’s shoulders a garment (a mantle of some kind) which had a symbol of upon it, though I could not clearly make out what the symbol looked like. The Lord told me that He would release wonder-working gifts through men and women’s hands in this season – just as William Branham was gifted not only in the visions of God but in his hands.
A New Heritage of Wonder-Workers in the Order of William Branham
In the time of knights men would wear what was called a “surcoat” over their armor to help protect from rusting. This is what I saw that night, and I believe the word of the Lord to be this: God is passing forth a heritage in the spirit this year, here in America, and it is of the order of William Branham. This man’s armor will not gather rust any longer, it will appear again on the scene in America this year, freshly clad on a new company of wonder-workers who will begin to move throughout this land this year!

“…And Moses took the rod of God in his hand. And the Lord said to Moses, ‘When you get back to Egypt, see that you do all those wonders before Pharaoh which I have put in your hand…” (Ex. 4:20-21)
As God put the rod of God in Moses’ hand and told him to go and work wonders in Egypt, so is God now putting wonders in the hands of these dread champions who are emerging on the scene in the order of William Branham.
Branham was commissioned in 1946 through a supernatural experience in which God, “Put wonders in his hand”. One of these wonders literally worked through his left hand as a gift of discerning of spirits, whereby he could sense the presence of any demonically fueled disease or sickness. The second wonder was his extraordinary gift of visions which he was given. He could discern the secrets of men’s hearts from the platform and help the people breakthrough the spirit of unbelief (which holds the miraculous back the most in America). God did it through this man’s life and ministry, even here in America, and he’s doing it again in our day. He’s passing William Branham’s coat of arms!
A Word of Warning for Leaders
“The Lord told me that He would release wonder working gifts, even through men and women’s hands in this season, just as William Branham was gifted; not only in the visions of God, but in his hands.“
The Lord would say, “Do not be narrow-minded in your approach to revival and moves of God, because you stand the chance of not being used in this next move; you stand the chance of allowing the enemy to harden your heart to the move if you are not careful.
“Be very careful in this season what you choose to curse with your mouth calling the move of God ‘of the devil.’ For even the Pharisees in Jesus’ day said this of Him, and they were standing in front of the greatest manifestation of God to ever visit earth. It’s not always so easy to tell what is of God and what is not of God, so do not be quick to falsely judge this next move. Humble yourselves My leaders,” the Lord would say, “and patiently judge the things of God in this next season, especially as it pertains to movements in the Church.”
“For I the Lord will test the hearts of My leaders in this next move; because the move of God requires testing for leadership. I, the Lord, will reveal your hearts by offending your minds at times with things that are strange and things you do not understand nor have a grid for. But if you humble yourselves and exercise the key of patience in your judgment in this hour, I, the Lord, will reveal to your heart the work of the Lord and the work of the enemy.
“I, the Lord, will cause you to clearly discern the difference between the light and the darkness. But it will not be given to prideful and the puffed up leaders which think they know just because they have power. It is not given to the lofty in position to know the things of God—even the hidden things of God.The mysteries of God are not given to them that will rush to judgment. It is given to the humble to know the mysteries of God. (Photo via Wikipedia)
“In this next outpouring there will be mysteries, hidden secrets, and things you would not expect. I, the Lord, will bring forth the wonder-workers not just the healers, and they will work wonders which you have never heard of and have never seen. But do not be shaken by the things you know not of. For I, the Lord, am with you and will help you to discern. I’m going to help you, My leaders, My apostles, My prophets, My pastors, but you must humble yourselves and not rush to judgment. This is the word I give to you this day to prepare you for this next move of God.” (To Subscribe to the Elijah List go here.)
