His ministry spawned many emulators and set in motion the broader healing revival that later became the modern Charismatic movement. From , Branham's campaigning and popularity began to decline as the Pentecostal churches began to withdraw their support from the healing campaigns for primarily financial reasons.
By , Branham transitioned into a teaching ministry. Unlike his contemporaries, who followed doctrinal teachings known as the Full Gospel tradition, Branham developed an alternate theology that was primarily a mixture of Calvinist and Arminian doctrines, and had a heavy focus on dispensationalism and Branham's own unique eschatological views. While widely accepting the restoration doctrine he espoused during the healing revival, his divergent post-revival teachings were deemed increasingly controversial by his Charismatic and Pentecostal contemporaries, who subsequently disavowed many of the doctrines as "revelatory madness".
In , Branham preached a sermon in which he indicated he was a prophet with the anointing of Elijah , who had come to herald Christ's second coming. Some followers of his teachings placed him at the center of a cult of personality during his final years.

Branham is known for his role in the healing revivals that occurred in the United States in the s and s,  and most participants in the movement regarded him as its initiator. Branham held massive inter-denominational meetings, from which came reports of hundreds of miracles. Branham held his first meetings as a faith healer in Louis meetings as the inauguration of the healing revival period. His first revival meetings were held over 12 days during June in St. Kidston, was editor of The Apostolic Herald and had many contacts in the Pentecostal movement.
Louis campaign meetings,  and according to the article, Branham drew a crowd of over 4, sick people who desired healing and recorded him diligently praying for each. Louis meetings, Branham launched a tour of small Oneness Pentecostal churches across the Midwest and southern United States, from which stemmed reports of healing and one report of a resurrection. He held meetings that month in Jonesboro, Arkansas and drew a crowd of 25, with attendees from 28 different states.
Branham's revivals were interracial from their inception and were noted for their "racial openness" during the period of widespread racial unrest. Louis meetings claimed to be healed during the revival, helping to bring Branham a sizable African American following from the early days of the revival. Dedicated to ministering to both races, Branham insisted on holding interracial meetings even in the southern states.

To satisfy segregation laws when ministering in the south, Branham's team would use a rope to divide the crowd by race. After holding a very successful revival meeting in Shreveport during mid, Branham began assembling an evangelical team that stayed with him for most of the revival period.
The first meetings organized by Lindsay were held in northwestern North America during late Bosworth met Branham at the meetings and also joined his team. Branham spent many hours ministering and praying for the sick during his campaigns, and like many other leading evangelists of the time he suffered exhaustion. Branham partially recovered from his illness and resumed holding meetings in October ; in that month he held a series of meetings around the United States without Lindsay's support.
Most revivalists of the era were flamboyant but Branham was usually calm and spoke quietly, only occasionally raising his voice. In the first part of his meetings, one of Branham's companion evangelists would preach a sermon. Bosworth usually filled this role, but other ministers also participated in Branham's campaigns. Without this consciousness he seems to be perfectly helpless. Branham told audiences the angel that commissioned his ministry had given him two signs by which they could prove his commission.

His fascinating perspective on the lies and limitations of the American Dream, and the inherent racism in a society that denies its nonwhite citizens the opportunity to dream, gives extraordinary insight into the most urgent issues of our own time. The Autobiography of Malcolm X stands as the definitive statement of a movement and a man whose work was never completed but whose message is timeless.
It is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand America. His repeated acts of self-creation spoke to me; the blunt poetry of his words, his unadorned insistence on respect, promised a new and uncompromising order, martial in its discipline, forged through sheer force of will. Its dead level honesty, its passion, its exalted purpose, will make it stand as a monument to the most painful truth.
