The Mysterious Pyramid in Jeffersonville
The Jeffersonville Pyramid
If a UFO crashed on Walton's Mountain, its stranded occupants would be hard pressed to appear more alien and out of place
than this white marble pyramid does among the polite little headstones and marble crosses of an otherwise simple and old-fashioned
Indiana cemetery. Standing half again as high as most of the stones around it and easily more massive than anything else in
Eastern Cemetery in Jeffersonville, with a large, metal eagle mounted on top, the Pyramid is the first thing you see when
you enter the cemetery, and certainly the one thing you won't forget once you've left.
The Great Prophet of the Laodicean age was born in 1909. As a child he heard God's voice in the wind. He told his parents the trees spoke to him, advising him of God's will. By his thirties he embarked on a nationwide ministry of healing and miracles and, according to some accounts, the resurrection of the dead. By his fifties, his followers believe, he met with angels and fulfilled Biblical prophesy regarding the end of the world His name was William M. Branham, a minister who lived much of his life in Jeffersonville. He lies beneath the Pyramid, which has become a holy relic to hundreds of Pentacostals who believe the man to have been not only the Lord's own Endtime Prophet, but the Seventh Angel fortold by Revelation. His is one of the truly wild stories of the American Evangelical movement ; an adventure in faith and mythmaking that few in Jeffersonville, even those who remember Branham, are even aware of.
Extremely detailed analysis of Branham's life and beliefs by a religious author who believes Branham to have been controlled by "demonic spirits. The bondage in which he lived was an occultic bondage. His powers were those of a soothsayer."
