William Branham's 1948 Testimony:

In a 1948 testimony given to Voice of Healing Magazine, the publication jointly operated by Jack Moore and Gordon Lindsay, Branham claims that his "angelic visitation" was May 7, 1946.

Any familiar with Branham's accounts of his "angelic visitation" will pause at the date, because he claimed it to have happened the "very day" that Israel became a nation, and mistakenly claimed that this day was May 6, 1947" -- switching the '7' from the year on his 1948 testimony and the '6' from the month.

And for the first time for twenty-five hundred years, the oldest flag that's in existence today, is the six-point star of David, is flying over Jerusalem today. And a strange thing of that, that you might not know, the very day the Angel of the Lord called me out, May the 6th, 1947, and issued the gift to pray for the sick, was the very same day that Israel become a nation for the first time for twenty-five hundred years.
- Branham, 54-0718A

But which version is incorrect? Both years cannot be true; Branham claimed in both cases that this was the year, month, and day that he received his "gift of divine healing." And he claimed that he could never forget the time.

So which version is incorrect? Did it not happen the "very day" that Israel became a nation? Or did William Branham not really see the angel?
