“I seen those independent Nazis kicking the Americans like that and things at that wall. And there’s many boys standing here now that was at that Siegfried Line that knows what it was. And remember, that was eleven years before the Siegfried Line was built. Is God true? Does He still foretell things to happen? Watch. That’s–that was the fourth.” -Rev. Branham “The Seventieth Week of Daniel” 1961
In WWI there was a fortification called the Siegfried position which was along the same line as the Siegfried line in WW2. So what happened to this position that the prophet said the Siegfried Line wasn’t even built yet?
After a close study of history we find that the Treaty of Versailles specified all German fortifications of WWI to be destroyed and that none could be maintained within a certain region specified by the Treaty.
Article 42: Germany is forbidden to maintain or construct any fortifications either on the left bank of the Rhine or on the right bank to the west of a line drawn 50 kilometres to the East of the Rhine. – See more at: http://alphahistory.com/weimarrepublic/treaty-of-versailles-1919/#sthash.hLYhY9qB.dpuf
Article 180: All fortified works, fortresses and field works situated in German territory to the west of a line drawn fifty kilometres to the east of the Rhine shall be disarmed and dismantled. – See more at: http://alphahistory.com/weimarrepublic/treaty-of-versailles-1919/#sthash.hLYhY9qB.dpuf
The Siegfried position may have been in existence prior to WWI but it certainly was not existence after WWI for some time.
Once again it appears that when we stick with what the prophet of God said, we end up closer to the reality of the situation than if we are swayed by the surface analysis of others.
Lord Bless you!
