The Failed India Trip:

It was brought to our attention that our "Resources" section of did not include the one prophecy that William Branham admitted to have failed: The India Trip Vision.

Also, the site was missing the many photos of Branham's very expensive safaris. Without painting the full picture of a man spending hundreds of thousands of dollars, one might mistakenly believe his claims to have never collected an offering.

A new page has been added to properly expose these issues.

To our knowledge William Branham only admitted to one of his many failed prophecies. In 1957, Branham confessed to his congregation that he did not have success with his India trip (the focus of a 1954 prophecy).

as many of you might know, the Indian trip wasn't the success that it should've been, because I failed to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit, and never recognized it after He give me a vision to go to Africa first and then to India. And—and some of the brethren said, "Oh, just… We can't get Africa together, so… Brother Roberts has just been down there, so take off to India." And under the influence of my brethren, well maybe taught… But no matter what someone influences you, if God has told you something different… And now, judge it by the Word (See?), by the Word, and then go.

According to William Branham, his "prophecy" failed because of the order of his travel plans. After returning unsuccessfully, Branham claims that his "vision" placed Africa before India in his itinerary. But though this "vision" was written down, William Branham was very inconcistent in his account of God's divine plan for order of importance. Often, Branham claimed the exact opposite when describing his failed prophecy:

The vision said "You'll go to India first and then back to Africa." See, I—I wrote it myself. I wrote the thing myself. Branham, 57-1208 - I Stand At The Door And Knock

But does God place the honor of a "prophet" above the salvation of countless millions of people? According to William Branham's first declaration of prophecy concerning his India trip, "tens of thousands times thousands" would be saved.
