Religions started by Angels

When one looks at history we find many major religion’s that have been started from angel’s. The Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormonism, Islam and almost anything new is no exception to this. The whole New Age movement receives their information from Spirit guides through channeling and automatic writing. The psychics also receive their impressions by familiar spirits who would be identified as fallen angels. One could even say Christianity has been started from the angel Gabriel who brought the message to Mary, Joseph and the shepherd’s in the field. However, they, nor the apostles did not commune with the angels to get their inspiration for Scripture. Christianity centers on Christ its message content does not come from angels.

There are some Christian healing ministries started by angelic visitations. William Branham at the early age of three and seven had an angel appear to him. In a cave in 1946 this angel appeared and stayed with him giving him the power to discern peoples thoughts and illnesses. In his services he would wait for the angels presence before he could start the meetings. Branham was led away from orthodoxy stating that Trinitarianism was of the devil, that baptism should only be in Jesus name and taught that Eve had sexual relations with the serpent. He taught denominationalism is the mark of the beast and all denominations would be under the world council of church’s by 1977. He later proclaimed himself to be the angel of Revelation 3:14, 10:7. Today there is still about 10,000 Branhamites following his teaching after his death. Those who were influenced when he was alive were W.V. Grant, A..A. Allen, O.L. Jaggers, Paul Cain who was a disciple, and Oral Roberts. Many of today’s healing evangelists point back to him as a mentor and influence such as Hinn, Copeland and Hagin and other Word faith movement practitioners.

Angels have always been involved in bringing revelation to mankind. They have also been involved in bringing false information. It all depends on which spirit you have made contact with. 42% of Americans believe they have been in contact with someone who has died and almost 15% endorse the work of spirit mediums.

All these and other religions have had communion with angels for their extra-biblical books or are given new revelation for a new interpretation on the Bible. Can the same angel say two different things on the same subject and they both be true? Obviously not, yet this is exactly what Islam claims has transpired in the Koran. They believe the Koran was verbally dictated by the angel Gabriel based on eternal tablets that are in heaven. Naturally, if there is a conflict it must be in the Bible and not their own book. However there something else operating here that proves it is not the angel Gabriel as they claim.
