See, we told you he was a prophet….! Really?
When God gives a vision it is connected to
what he is or is going to do among his people, and it is to prophesy. Visions
are to reveal something to or about God’s people or their enemies; be it Israel
or the church. It’s not like a psychic vision of disaster or of the future that
has nothing to do with
William Branham said he experienced a series of 7 visions in 1933; this was the fourth one in the series.
“The Lord Jesus spoke to me and said that the coming of the Lord was drawing nigh, but that before He came, seven major events would transpire. I wrote them all down and that morning I gave forth the revelation of the Lord.”
One Sunday morning about seven o'clock it happened. And It said, "Then there would come to pass that they'd invent a car that they didn't need a steering wheel in it; it'd be controlled by some kind of a power." They got it now. They got it now, a magnetic power, radar control. They don't even... Just set your radar to where you're going, it takes you yourself; you don't have to steer it. (Ephesian Church age Jefferson Indiana 131 - 183, 60 – 1205)
Branham had received a message but from whom is the question?
This was not a vision form the Lord because of how vague it is, besides its inaccuracy. Not to mention this was encased with 6 other visions Branham had. Seven Major events were revealed to him in a vision before he was to preach in a Masonic hall. What was he doing in a Masonic Hall is a good question to ask, as Masons hold Christ in disrepute.
How accurate was Branham in his prophecy when science was already thinking ahead. Branham referred to the technology they had at the time, and it was not God telling him this future event of a plastic bubble-topped car that was going down beautiful highways.
Now, the fifth thing. "Science will progress in such a way until they will make a car that will not have to be guided by a steering wheel, and the cars will continue to be shaped like an egg until the consummation," the end time. And we got it. It's on television. "Popular Science"--"Mechanics," rather, all have it; we got the car. It's controlled by remote control by--by radar. They won't even have to have any steering wheel in it. Just set your dial like this--like you dial your phone--your car takes you right on to it, can't wreck nor nothing. No other cars--the magnet keeps the rest of them away from you. See? They got it. Oh, my. Think of it. Predicted thirty years before it happened.…SEVENTY WEEKS OF DANIEL. Jefferson IN 61-0806)
The idea of driverless cars running on automatic pilot was predicted by Popular Mechanics magazine in the 1950s (when Branham recorded his sermons), but he gave no proof that he spoke this 30 years prior. In fact these were already being considered.
“I see automobiles looking like an egg, going down the street. There is cars go down the highways, with some kind of a control, they don't have to guide it. I seen an American family playing checker in the back of a car." They've got the car right now, if they just had the highways to put it on. The little Volkswagen is a perfect egg, just exactly, and it's all the other cars. Could you imagine, in 1933, what the cars looked like, to now? (64-0321E, The Voice Of The Sign, Denham Springs High School, Denham Springs, LA)
And now, it also said, "And it shall come to pass, that before the end time shall come, that automobiles will take on the shape of an egg, become more like an egg.”
“that I seen a family driving in an automobile that was glass topped and didn't have any steering wheel in it." (60-1125, Conference, Life Tabernacle, Shreveport, LA, 97)
"It'll come to pass that those cars will not be run by a steering wheel; it'll be something another run." It's them cars they're bringing out right now, remote control, for safety. Correct. You won't be able to enter into a city then, a twenty-mile zone, you can just go twenty mile. You can't hit another car, because it's remote control. See, it's going like that right now (58-0927, Why Are We Not A Denomination?, Branham Tabernacle, Jeffersonville, IN)
In 1925, Houdina Radio Control demonstrated theradio-controlled driverless car "linrrican Wonder" at New York City streets, traveling up Broadway and down Fifth Avenue through the thick of the traffic jam. equipped with a transmitting antennae on the tonneau and was operated by a second car that followed it and sent out radio impulses which were caught by the transmitting antennae
Norman Bel Geddes'sFuturama exhibit sponsored by General Motors at the 1939 World's Fair, which depicted radio-controlled electric cars that were propelled via electromagnetic fields provided by circuits embedded in the roadway. So everyone knew this was coming in the future.
Bel Geddes later outlined his vision in his book, Magic Motorways (1940), promoting advances in highway design and transportation, foreshadowing theInterstate Highway System, and arguing that humans should be removed from the process of driving.
Cars shaped like eggs in the 40’s
1940 the "egg shape," is certainly not an advantageous shape for passengers, especially a VW bug. this is why shapes have changed. The shape of car bodies varies according to customer purchases and preferences and practicality, not always according to aerodynamics.
But in the 50’s -60’s they were very different, wings got popular and even today there are all kinds of shapes but hardly popular is the egg shape.
1950 1960 2000 2015
I said, "Then after the war... it'll come to pass that science will be inventing great things." And I said, "When they do, they'll make an automobile, and automobiles will continually shape down (You know what they looked like in '33, now they...)," said, "they'll become like eggs, look like an egg. For I seen on a highway, a great master highway, a car going down the road that didn't have any steering wheel in it. It was controlled by a power." They got it right now...?... (That was thus saith the Lord Thiatiarean church age 60 – 1208)
Now, the fifth thing. "Science will progress in such a way until they will make a car that will not have to be guided by a steering wheel, and the cars will continue to be shaped like an egg until the consummation," the end time. (The Jubilee The Seventy Weeks Of Daniel Jefferson In. 89-141, 61-0806)
Branham said science would increase so greatly the cars would become more like "egg" all the time. This was hardly the pattern from when he spoke this, cars have become so varied in shape and their popularity is dependent on the taste of the people. Bubble roofs of glass are hardly what the trend is toward.
Here is a picture of one of the driverless cars today, hardly bubble like after 50 years of his prediction.
Granted there are some that look like a VW bug, hardly room for 4 people. Regardless, it is not powered the way he said it would be.
RAdio Detection And Ranging. RADAR is used in speed enforcement. Air traffic control, radar astronomy, air-defense systems, antimissile systems; aircraft anti-collision systems; ocean surveillance systems, outer space surveillance; meteorological precipitation monitoring; altimetry and flight control systems; guided missile target locating systems; and ground-penetrating radar for geological observations to name a few.
The first police LIDAR unit was developed in 1989 and revolutionized speed enforcement. For the first time law enforcement was able to aim through a scope to select the suspect speeding car and secure an accurate speed regardless of its position in traffic. NASA utilized a specially designed LIDAR for all space docking missions.
“Laser Radar” LIDAR is far more target selective than RADAR. Light Detection and Ranging is used in LTI’s family of Lasers. Specifically pulse laser detection sends out a predetermined series of light pulses with a known time interval between each pulse to a target and transmit and receive sensors resulting in an accurate speed and range.
This is what they are using and it was not invented in Branham’s day. So this is not magnetic nor radar as described by Branham. Now we must understand his prophecy of this was encased with 6 others. 7 predictions in the same vision he had in 1933, or so he said. So if one is wrong in any portion of these vision prophecies, then the whole matter of it being from God must be reject
Robot cars are said to help us get rid of traffic jams and accidents. For the handicapped, blind people, or the elderly this new technology would be welcomed, even for public transportation. Those who are too young to drive would be able to move around freely. The savings in lives, dollars, and productivity is incalculable. The problems we face now in the technology are fog, snow and heavy rain which affect the lidar system of calculation.
Trial programs will launch in 12 to 20 more U.S. locations, which meansdriverless cars will be on roads in up to 30 U.S. cities by the end of 2016
These cars do not use radar for power but Laser Illuminating Detection and Ranging – or LIDAR – which builds a 3D map and allows the car to “see” potential hazards by bouncing a laser beam off of surfaces surrounding the car in order to accurately determine the distance and the profile of that object. The radar units allow the car to avoid impact by sending a signal to the on-board processor to apply the brakes, or move out of the way when applicable.
Some of those tested have featured advanced sonar technology. The limitations of sonar are its narrow field of view and its relatively short effective range (about 6 meters). However, the inclusion provides yet another redundant system that allows the car to effectively cross-reference data from other systems in real time to apply the brakes, pre-tension seat belts for impact, or swerve to avoid obstacles.
The LIDAR turret paints the world around the car with an infrared laser beam at very high speed. By recording the position and intensity of laser light reflected back, a simple machine vision algorithm can quickly compute a three-dimensional map of the objects around the car many times a second, allowing it to identify objects like cars, pedestrians, sidewalks, and traffic cones.
And now I have predicted by revelation from God, or a vision in 1933, that seven things would happen before the end time. " 64-0726E, Broken Cisterns, Branham Tabernacle, Jeffersonville, IN)
This lidar control was not invented in Branham’s day and it certainly is not controlled like dialing a phone.
And what of the Luxury flying car to hit market in 2017?
A company in Europe is introducing a flying car to the roads and skies. AeroMobil, based in Slovakia, has been developing this project since 1989. The two-seat vehicle converts from a light sport plane with retractable wings to a four-wheel car that runs on gasoline instead of kerosene. That means you can fill it up at a regular gas station. The company said it can hit just about 100 mph on the road and just under 125 mph in the sky.
Why did Branham not see this as well? Would this not be as fantastic as a driverless car? In fact there are more futurist concepts involving flying cars than driverless.
“I seen American family going down the road in a broad way, riding in a car with their backs turned towards where the wheel should be; looked like they were playing checkers or cards. And we got it. It's on television. "Popular Science"--"Mechanics," rather, all have it; we got the car. It's controlled by remote control by--by radar. They won't even have to have any steering wheel in it. Just set your dial like this--like you dial your phone--your car takes you right on to it, can't wreck nor nothing. No other cars--the magnet keeps the rest of them away from you. See? They got it. Oh, my. Think of it. Predicted thirty years before it happened. (The Jubilee,.The Seventy Weeks Of Daniel, Jefferson In. 89-141, 61-0806)
What do the bubble cars prove – Branham. They prove nothing from the Bible that has any reference to the Church. Branham saw this car, but not the computer’s in the all the cars. He never mentioned the company that made them? Branham didn’t see music players or video players in the car, battery operated cars, or wi-fi for that matter. All which has become commonplace in our day and shaped the way cars are before a driverless car.
We are told he is the end time prophet, the last for the age of the church. He never prophesied the Internet, computers, laptops, VCR, DVD players, MP3 players, wireless electricity, telephones being carried on a person to communicate, Big TV’s common in homes, going to the moon, the Kennedy assassination which changed America like nothing else in its time. The drug culture or LSD that were both beginning in his day. Or where marijuana is being legalized. The price of oil and its importance for the world and the Arabs. The rise of terrorism all over the world. What governments would be a problem in our future. All of these are normal in our day, but much began during or after he died that has affected us far more than some of what he prophesied.
Why do people want to believe in this man as a modern day prophet and not believe the ones that have their words written in the Bible?
