Throughout his entire ministry, Brother Branham paid special tribute to the Tabernacle that he founded when he was only 24 years old. In these words, spoken at a re-dedication service in 1963, we are able to catch a glimpse of the Tabernacle through his eyes:
thirty years ago in a muddy pond bed, I dedicated this piece of ground to Jesus
Christ when it wasn't nothing but a mud bed. This was all a pond. That's the
reason the street's out of cater there, because the road had to go around to
get away from the pond that was here.
And in here there used to be lilies, pond lilies, coming up. The lily is a
very strange flower. It is born in mud, and it has to press its way through
the mud and then through the waters and slime to get itself up to the top to
show its beauty. I think that's a whole lot what's happened here. Since that
time, a little pond lily has pushed itself, and when it got to the top of the
water, it spread its wings forth, its little petals went out, and it reflected
the Lily of the Valley."
