Genesis 17: 5: Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.
Brother Branham’s father (Charles) was involved in an extremely violent barroom brawl during which Charles became a wanted man. He fled across the Kentucky state line, into Indiana; it was then that he changed his surname. Before fleeing from the state, he told his wife (Ella) that he would write to her under another name and let her know where he was.
God placed an “H” into the name of Abram, giving it seven letters, signifying the “completion” of Abraham’s faith. Charles Branham unknowingly did God a service by placing an “H” into “Branam”, to make “Branham”: seven letters. All three names of the seventh church age messenger (William Marrion Branham) consisted of seven letters.
