LIGHT... IS IT?
I am very aware
that speaking the truth is not a very popular thing. Our Lord
Jesus Christ was hated and killed because He spoke the Truth.
Recently I was
informed of my being quoted in a book regarding what I wrote in my
reply to this email:
greetings to you in jesus mighty name.
Have you heard about any of the recent on goings in my
country NIgeria.(am in lesotho now so i am not a witness)
the stories making rounds of Amos omoboriowo being the new
"JOHN" /Lead apostle of this day( really and extention of
his extremist CHIEF apostle teaching on late bro jackson).
he is seen as the new standard bearer for truth in the
endtime message and a lot of euphoria seems to sorround the
move and i saw on his website video recordings of the angel
of the lord manifest in his meetings.
like i said earlier am far away in lesotho and only heard of
it.it looks like another tangent off the message.he
publishes are paper called the scribe and declared himself a
minor messenger of this age.and some lovely brothers and
ministers of the truth i used to know way back at home are
joining the bandwagon!!!
what are your comments.
i'd like to know your thoughts

There's nothing new under the sun -- whatever you have
This world can only get
worse not better. The church, in general, is heading into
darker darkness than into brighter light. Satan has
cleverly deceived more and more preachers and believers each
passing day. So there's nothing new to know that men like
Amos has deceived himself and even his people.
I saw the pictures and the video on
his website (http://www.bftchurch.org/supernatural.html),
and let me tell you this, if you ask a professional
photographer or simply one who works with photography, he
will laugh at the foolish claim that the light was
supernatural. I took up photography when I was young and I
know how light can reflect and refract off surfaces (esp.
glossy surface) of walls, ceiling, pictures, etc. I have
such photos, too. I can even now create such pictures, if I
want to. To photographers, it's considered a damaged shot.
In colour photography,
ordinary reflected light will show as white and glaring.
Compare those pictures with the coloured photos of Branham.
What do you notice? The light is amber in Branham's.
Hope that helps you.
It is sad that many Christians
are as carnal as they are religious. Believing in the
supernatural and desiring to see the supernatural is one thing but
it is another to foolishly hold to something that is not
supernatural as if it
is. Real or otherwise, the supernatural produces an euphoria.
Certainly. However, if it is not real, what would people think
of such Bible believing Christians who foolishly claim things that
are not real?
When it comes to photography,
there have been countless Christians and even non-Christians the
world over who have claimed that their camera have captured the
"supernatural". The Christians, especially those who follow
the Message of William Branham, would claim the "supernatural light",
calling it the Pillar of Fire, and claiming that God is in their midst,
thus making them a very special group
of people. It is perfectly alright if they stop at that, but
many times, the pastor of the church would claim exclusively that he
is a very special man of God for the hour, that he is the one and
only minister chosen to lead the church and all ministers must take
heed to his leadership and his revelations.
On this page are several
pictures taken with three different digital cameras (belonging to
three different persons) during my visits to different countries in
the last twelve months (May 2008 - May 2009). Digital camera
behaves very different from conventional camera that uses
photographic film. It somehow tends to pick up reflected light very
easily when the flash is used. Reflected light from the flash commonly appears in
the shape of an orb or as a glare of light.
~ ~ ~
These first two
pictures (taken in the Philippines) show a clear orb on the upper left
quadrant. The first picture has also a clear orb on the left lower
corner. In the second one there are two less clear overlapping orbs near the speaker
box and one in center front of the covered pulpit stand.
If you look carefully
you will see at least ten orbs in this picture. Notice the two small
bright overlapping orbs in front of the pulpit stand.
Orbs are scattered among the congregation in this fourth picture.
There's a small one on the head of the brother on the left and one
big one on his left shoulder. There are several on the brother
next to him, on his shirt and black trousers. There is a brighter
one between the heads of these two brothers and one in the center of
were taken in the open parking space (Philippines) and in an
activity hall (India). To spiritists, these orbs are said to be the
spirits of the dead and that they are having some sort of activities
going on in the two areas. To some Christians, these orbs are said
to be angelic beings, and that the Christians in the picture(s) are
being visited by the angels.
Both these pictures were taken in Sri Lanka. Notice the amount
of orbs floating around in the left picture and only one clear one
in the other. Now how do these orbs come about? Some people
might assume that the camera lens was dirty. Not so. Just experiment
with your digital camera in a dusty area and where there is dampness
or high humidity and you will see the result. The picture of the
garden was taken on a hilly resort on a cool damp night. There was
not much activities around that area. However, the other picture was
taken outside a building besides a road. Water molecules cling to
dust particles, and with the right amount and angle of the flash,
light from the flash is reflected back to the camera.
where there is not much dust being stirred up into the air (like in
these two pictures) are less likely to see many orbs. More so, if
the room or area is dry. In an air-conditioned room (cool and
dry) and which is well lit, it is near impossible to see orbs
appearing on flash-aided shots.
This picture was taken without flash. Behind the brother and his
wife was a glass panel. The sunlight streamed in from an angle
and refracted through the glass striking the camera lens and
creating several spots of light that are hexagonal.
On a small Fijian island
was this picture taken. It was a cool night. We were sitting beside
a bonfire (off to the right of the picture). There are two orbs, one
that looks like the moon is in a far off distance (but is actually
just above us), and the other near the head of the brother playing a
pictures were taken in the same church as those of photos 1 to 4.
Notice the many ceiling fans and wall fans. Picture 13 was taken
without flash. A few second later, the other picture was
snapped but this time with the flash on. How many orbs can you see
in the one taken without flash, if there is any? And how many
orbs can you see in the one taken with flash? Now, were the
orbs supernatural lights, a manifestation of God? And, was
this church really visited by angelic beings?

group of pictures deals with so-called "supernatural light".
The pictures were taken in an air-conditioned room of a hotel. Undiscerning digital camera users might jump up and down for joy,
believing that they have captured the Pillar of Fire. Little do many
of such amateur photographers realize that what they have captured
were nothing less than their own flash reflecting off a glossy
surface in the background, such as a whiteboard, glossy painted
wall, glass panel or mirror.
This picture was
taken without flash as a "control" so that we could see how the flash
affects a picture when taken with a whiteboard in the background. Notice
that the area in front of the whiteboard is lit up by the light from
the ceiling above. (See the ceiling light in other pictures.) The
extreme right end of the whiteboard is slightly dim.
I moved slightly to the right where I stood in the first picture in
order to get that "supernatural light" on the top left corner of the
Moving one step to
the right moved the "supernatural light" away from the left end of the
This shot was
taken back where I original sat in the first picture but this time
standing and lifting the camera above heads.
In this shot the camera was aimed away from the left edge of the
whiteboard so as not to captured the "supernatural light" reflected off
from it. Notice the faint "supernatural light" in the corner where the
two whiteboards meet.
A brother took this shot
from the opposite corner of the room where the whiteboards meet. You not
only can see the faint "supernatural light" in the corner but also a
glaring ball of "supernatural light" on the left side of the whiteboard.
This is a good
picture taken from the right side of the room. You not only see the
"supernatural light" but there appears to be a veil of lace curtain
stretched out across it. Of course, it is created by the reflection of
the whiteboard on the right side of the wall where in the far end you
see also a mirrored image. On the left side of the picture, you
can see a few small orbs.
A closer shot from the right
side of the room. The "supernatural light" is, of course, on the
right side of the picture. However, if a flash from another
camera goes off on the left side of the room simultaneously, it
would create a "supernatural light" on the left side of the

supernatural light captured on camera would be amber
in colour as in
these two photos. The "halo" light above Bro. Branham's head was taken with a

film been used, the "halo" would have an amber glow.
affects differently on both motion picture taken with digital video
camera and those taken with an 8mm or 16mm film movie camera. In the
latter, when the movie camera pans from side to side as the film
rolls and a flashlight pops a little distance in front of the
camera, a streaking light is "burnt" on the film for a mere few
a video taken with a digital camera.

A question was asked as to why a believer
was healed of her affliction when she touched the place where the
so-called "supernatural light" appeared. My answer to the question
is, "Was it really the so-called "supernatural light" that
was once there, healed the believer or was it the faith of the
believer, that God honored, which healed her? Have you not heard
of "seed faith" that moves mountains? When pagans or
sinners received healings and miracles in their lives, was it
their gods or some religious relics that healed them? Do
healings and miracles come from Satan?"
Brethren, Satan will deceive anyone he could by casting a veil of
religious darkness over him. With many who think/want to be super
spiritual, he could very easily come to them as an angel of light
and blind them with so-called supernatural things. The distance
between light and darkness, truth and falsehood, is just a
hair-breath. And because of their pride and carnality many are
caught in such a net of deception and dwell in darkness of
traditions of religious men. No truth can come out of darkness for
"God is light, and in Him there is no darkness at all" (cf.1
the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, lies in simplicity even though
the design of His creation is filled with complexity. Though science
cannot explain the supernatural, it can tell the difference between
what is supernatural (of which it could not explain) and what is
Therefore, fellow-believers, be not foolish. Separate
yourselves from religiousness and abide in the light and the
simplicity of Truth.
