God Stole William Branham's Prophecies From The Cornerstone:

After our having published descriptions of witness testimony describing the cornerstone of the Branham Tabernacle being exhumed and found to be empty, it has caused quite a stir among the cult following of William Branham. They began asking the immediate question: If William Branham was not honest about his prophecies being buried in the cornerstone, how could he have been honest about any of his supernatural claims?

Some cult ministers, distracting their followings from the obvious legal errors with Branham's 1933 claims -- specifically the date of purchase of the grounds underneath the Branham Tabernacle -- are now making excuses for the missing prophecies. Maybe God took those prophecies from the cornerstone!

I suppose any person is entitled to any opinion, no matter how far-fetched. Maybe William Branham's dog ate the prophecies before he put them in there! Maybe he really DID place them in his desk drawer, in his bible, or in his study! Maybe he really WAS reading directly from the page of prophecies during the 1960 sermon "Condemnation By Representation"

I'd like to read you a prophecy that was given. I got on... And many... By the way, Mr. Mercier and many of them are going to take some of these old prophecies, and dig them out, and revise them a little, or bring them up to date, and put them in papers. I'd like to read some things that I'd like for you to—to... This one first. I'd like to read something to you. 1932: (Listen to this.) As I was on my way... Or as I was getting ready to go on my way to church this morning, it came to pass that I fell into a vision. Our services is being held on Meigs Avenue at the old orphans' home, where Charlie Kern lives in part of the building." (He lives just across the street now, you know.) And it came to pass that while I was in this vision I seen some dreadful things take place. I speak this in the Name of the Lord.
Branham, 60-1113 - Condemnation By Representation

But through cognitive dissonance, cult leaders, cult elders, and cult followers attempt to reconcile that which cannot be resolved. One cult follower agrees with the idea, suggesting that God Himself removed them from the cornerstone. But can this be reconciled against William Branham having read them during a 1960 sermon? And if so, which date was correct: the 1932 date that he read, or the 1933 date that he claimed? Can any of this be reconciled with the 1936 date that is found on the deed? And can the 1936 date, with the Pentecostal Tabernacle be reconciled against the life story?

In scripture we find a much different God than the god of the message. He is not a deceptive God, not a God who hides himself from His people, not a God that is difficult to find. We don't find a God that would hide prophecies so that lost sheep cannot find His fold -- we find a God with open arms. Prophecies were written in multiple places, by multiple scribes, and protected for centuries. If they weren't, how would we have access to them?

Let's examine the acts of Solomon as they relate to prophecy:

Now the rest of the acts of Solomon, from first to last, are they not written in the history of Nathan the prophet, and in the prophecy of Ahijah the Shilonite, and in the visions of Iddo the seer concerning Jeroboam the son of Nebat?
- 2 Chronicles 9:29

Ask yourselves: Is this deceptive "god" of the Branham cult the same God of the Bible?
