FB Report from Komo5 News - Almost 700 Lightning Strikes in 1 Hour
On July 13, 2012 at 9:21am, based upon a number of reports from apostles, prophets, seers and intercessors I sent out an email declaring "let us pray, release the flood." It included references to Joel 2, Psalm 29, Matthew 24:36-39, Job 37, Psalm 148, and Psalm 18:6-15.
Within just a few minutes thunder and large hail began to drop. This was unusual as thunderstorms were not forecast to my knowledge. It was supposed to be sunny and 80 degrees. It caused me to remember Psalm 18:6-14. Over the years with Operation Rolling Thunder I've seen the Lord mark significant events with supernatural signs that reflect his word (click here for some supernatural examples).
Within a few more moments I began to receive report after report from all over our state and as far away as from Idaho. As people began opening the email they described two things. First, that God had been giving them a word (by dream and vision to) that flowed with the theme. Second, they described how thunder and lightning was heard as they were reading the email and they sensed God's presence.
The picture in this post describes how KOMO5 news reported via Facebook at 10:35am that within the last hour (began 14 minutes after the email went out) there had been almost 700 lightning strikes recorded. Now I got truly excited because I'd just taught New Life Christian Center in Portland Oregon on July 1 what I'd learned science could teach us about the voice of the Lord. The lightning strikes were occurring in areas where I know there is much prayer being mobilized through leaders using ORT along with a number of 24/7 prayer centers. I know that ALOT of PRAYERS WERE ANSWERED during that time! You see, Romans 1:20 teaches us that creation can teach us about God's invisible attributes.
For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, NKJV
