Is Joseph Branham a prophet?
Did William Branham prophesy that his son, Joseph, would be a prophet?
The dedication of Joseph Branham
At the dedication of his son, Joseph, William Branham prayed the following prayer:
There is no prophecy contained in this prayer. It is simply a request by a father that God would allow his son to be a prophet. It should be noted that by this emphasis, William Branham clearly believes that the prophet is the highest office in the church.
William Branham's flawed memory of the dedication
Two years later, William Branham recalls the dedication prayer as follows:
William Branham's stories often differed radically from the truth and this is another perfect example of this.
It is obvious from the above transcripts that William Branham never prophesied that Joseph Branham would be a prophet. This is another example of William Branham's constant changing of stories from what actually happened to what he wanted to have happened. And another perfect example of why you should not believe anything that William Branham said. We also are aware of no known prophecies by Joseph Branham, who certainly did not receive a double-portion of his father's visions.
