Moving Targets

William Branham's claim to be the return of the prophet "Elijah" is based on a series of prophecies that he claimed to have given in 1933. Though some of these prophecies seem to be fulfilled, the successful predictions do not always match the original predictions.

The Bible says that we are to test the prophecies. God knows the beginning and the end -- because God IS the Beginning and the End. If a prophet's words do not come to pass, then this is not a prophet of God:

If we examine the "Prophecies of 1933" according to Branham's own words, we find that adjustments to their descriptions were made to align the prophecies with recorded history. William Branham made the adjustment to his own words; the Word from the Lord would need no adjustment:

And you may say in your heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD has not spoken? When a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the thing does not come about or come true, that is the thing which the LORD has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him.
Deuteronomy. 18:21-22
