William Branham received these visions from the Lord in the year 1933. All but the last of them has come to pass.
The Seven Visions
He saw in a vision that the dictator of Italy, Benito Mussolini, would invade Ethiopia and according to the voice, Ethiopia “would fall at his (Mussolini’s) steps”. However, the voice continued and prophesied a dreadful end of the dictator, for he would have a horrible death and his own people would literally spit on him.
The next vision indicated America would be drawn into a world war against Germany which would be headed up by the Austrian, Adolph Hitler. The voice predicted that this terrible war would overthrow Hitler and he would come to a mysterious “end”. In this vision he was shown the Siegfried line whereat a great toll of American lives would be exacted, but Hitler would be defeated.
It might be well to mention here that a subsequent vision relative to this war predicted that President Roosevelt would declare war against Germany and in so doing would eventually be elected for a fourth term.
The third part of the vision showed that though there were three ISMS, Fascism, Nazism, Communism in the world: that the first two would come to nothing but that Communism would flourish. The voice admonished him to keep his eyes on “Russia” concerning future involvements, for Fascism and Nazism would end up in Communism.
The fourth vision that appeared to him was one in which there was predicted to be tremendous technological advances right after the war. This was symbolized by an egg shaped car with a plastic bubble roof, going down beautiful highways completely under perfect remote control. There was no steering wheel in the car and the occupants of the car appeared to be playing a game like checkers.
The fifth scene that appeared involved the character of womanhood around the world. In this scene there appeared the fast moral decay of women. Starting back when she received her so-called liberty to enter into worldly affairs by means of the vote, she soon began to wear clothes that were too revealing. She cut off her hair and adopted the clothing of men. Finally the vision showed her all but stripped naked and she merely covered herself with a tiny apron about the size and shape of a fig leaf. With her womanhood de-valued a terrible moral decay came upon the earth and with it perversion even as set forth by the Word of God.
Then there arose in the United States a most beautiful woman clothed in splendor, and great power was given to her. She was beautiful but there was a hardness about her that defied description. Beautiful as she was, yet she was cruel, wicked and cunning. She dominated the land with her authority, she had complete power over the people. Though the voice did not speak out and reveal who she was, he felt in his heart that this woman represented the rising Roman Catholic Church, and he inserted in parenthesis beside at the end of this vision which he had written out, (perhaps the Catholic church).
The voice told him look once more. As he turned a great explosion rent the entire land, and left the land of America a smoldering ruin. As far as the eye could see there was nothing but craters, smoking piles of debris, and no humanity in sight.
