Although the full-time Broncos levelled matters again through Jacob Ogden early in the second half, further scores from Reece Chapman-Smith and Quentin Lalau-Togaga'e, plus four goals from Steve Tyrer, saw the battling West Yorkshire side home.
Ogden claimed another try with nine minutes remaining but Halifax held on for a famous victory to make it into Monday's draw.
London Broncos coach Danny Ward said: "I'm gutted as I never like losing, especially in the cup. It's knockout football and that's the beauty of the cup. The boys are deflated and know they didn't perform.
"We bombed a couple of early chances but that's not why we lost. We created but didn't convert - finishing is an area we must improve in but our defensive attitude wasn't good enough."
Halifax boss Richard Marshall said: "We were excellent from the outset - I sensed it was on. Our completions were better than has been recently and our resilience was good. There's still work to do and can improve.
"We only had four days to turn in a performance and most have worked today too and you factor that into the equation and it was a first class effort from a group of part-time players who looked like they wanted to play for each other."
