The Call of Reverend Ricky Branham

        My family noticed early in my life that God created me with a special plan in mind.  My mother remembers that I moved constantly in her belly during church services, as though I were praising the Lord. 

        I was born March 15, 1983 at Willard Hospital in Willard, Ohio.  Around the age of two, my family and I had a direct encounter with an angel from God and Satan.  One night, my mother abruptly awoke and saw me standing at the entrance of her bedroom.  I was rubbing my eyes, and she told me to come and get in bed.  However, she unexpectedly noticed a being that was clearly not from this world standing behind me waving his hands.  The spirit being was a male angel and there was a bright light shining around him.  He was translucent but it was obvious that he was wearing a long, white robe with wide sleeves. Suddenly my mother noticed that it was not me standing there, but that it was my spirit.  My mother woke up my father, but he did not see anything and did not believe her.  She started praying that I would come and get in bed with her if I was going to live.  She prayed hard till she fell back asleep.  Without warning, she was awakened to me crawling in bed with her.  The angel again appeared to my mother in the same spot.  She woke my father again, but he still did not see the angel.  Out of the blue I said, “Mommy I see, I see, a man in white,” which surprised my parents because that was before I could speak good sentences and before I knew my colors.  My father believed my mother after that, and everyone went to sleep.  He dreamed that an angel touched the bed and it began to spin.  My father woke everyone up, and this time my mother saw a man dressed in all black, with red eyes, and his skin looked like charcoal.  He stared at all three of us and then walked out of the trailer through the wall.  My father did not see him, but he had no trouble believing.  My mother believed that this series of events meant that God had something special planned for me, but the Devil was mad and wanted to stop it. 

 
        I was fortunate to have parents that took me to church when I was little and grandparents that took me as I became older.  However, I began to slowly drift away from God when I became a freshman in high school.  One night, on the way back home after hanging out with friends, I was in a bad car accident.  I was rushed to the hospital after losing a tremendous amount of blood.  The doctor said I could have died instantly based on the way my face struck the car on impact.  I knew it was an act of God that I was alive, and the doctor confirmed my belief by calling it a miracle.  While at the hospital, I felt God saying to me that if I would have died,

        I would have gone to Hell.  I knew that He was calling me to follow Him.  As I lay on the hospital bed, I repented and accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior.       
In April of 1999 at the age of 16, I felt the call to preach the gospel during a Wednesday night youth service.  I hurried home that night to tell my mother of the good news.  She gave me the advice not to tell anyone but to wait and see if God really was calling me to minister.  Shortly after that, Evangelist and Pastor Rev. Ralph Farmer asked me when I was going to preach for him at his church.  That same day, a musician named R.B. Fallen asked me when I was going to preach.  I asked R.B. how he knew that I was called to preach, and he smiled and said, “I can just tell.”  I knew that God used Ralph and R.B. to confirm my calling.  On May 14, 1999 at a nondenominational church in North Fairfield, Ohio, I preached my first sermon to a packed church of 105 people.  It lasted 12 minutes, one person accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior, and it was evident to everyone in attendance that I was truly called of God to preach.  From that point on, ministers from all denominations began to contact me about preaching in their church.  I continued to minister and grow in the faith, began my Christian studies, and was ordained at the age of 20.
