Did William Braham believe replacement theology?

Critic John Collins alleges that Bro. William Branham taught Replacement Theology and Supersessionism. Collins makes this allegations purely through guilty by association. Some ministers associated with William Branham did advocate replacement theology, but Bro. Branham spoke against it.

What is Replacement Theology?

Supersessionism, also called replacement theology or fulfillment theology, is a Christian doctrine which asserts that the New Covenant through Jesus Christ supersedes the Old Covenant, which was made exclusively with the Jewish people.

In Christianity, supersessionism is a theological view on the current status of the church in relation to the Jewish people and Judaism.[1] It holds that the Christian Church has succeeded the Israelites as the definitive people of God or that the New Covenant has replaced or superseded the Mosaic covenant. From a supersessionist’s “point of view, just by continuing to exist [outside the Church], the Jews dissent”

What did Bro. Branham say?

Until God is finished with the Gentiles, Israel was blinded. They went off into sin and to transgressions against God, because God blinded their eyes, that we might be grafted in. You get it? [Romans 11] 26th verse now. And so all Israel shall be saved:… God blinded them purposely for you and I. They cannot see, because God blinded them. And all Israel, true Israel, shall be saved. What did the Angel say? Glory! “To finish the transgression of Israel! I’ve come to tell you that there will come a time when Israel’s transgression will be finished.” God will cut off that wild branch [Gentiles], and graft into that real branch again [Israel].
