2/21/09 QUICKENED: THE PARABLE
OF THE STORM
Today I was searching “911” in my
rhema data base and I came across this article from
THE PARABLE OF THE STORM
A few days after 9/11 events we had a storm sweep over
our state and during the storm
the Lord told me that
it was a sign of His Word of the storm coming upon the
world, and to take note of how the events played out at
our home. I noticed that I heard the first
thundering boom around 9 PM as I was shutting down my
computer and going to bed. The last boom I heard at our
house was promptly at 1 PM as I looked at the clock. It
was no coincidence that the numbers were 9 and 1. (91)
A very unusual thing occurred while we watched and
listened to the storm play its hand. Perhaps other
regions have different kinds of storms, but our thunder
and lightning storms usually have a lot of rain and wind
accompanying them. This storm was very unusual as there
was no rain and no wind at our house. It was very still
and that was the reason it stayed for four hours. As my
husband and I united in prayer I could see a faint mist
like dew fall below the street light right outside our
window. It would leave when we stopped praying. We
prayed for America and also that the Lord would put out
any fires started from this storm. The storm was loud
and flashy, but we felt safe under His covering. I heard
the Lord say that we were protected.
There were other things I noted about this storm. One,
my son was camping under the stars at a watchtower /
observatory and watching the entire sky light up for
hours. They were too far away to hear the blasting
thunder, and so he said it was like truly watching a
display of the glory of God. He had never seen
lightning come so fast and vivid for so long. My Dad
saw the storm from his town, and he said there were
between 20-30 strikes per minute. He was very concerned
about forest fires.
At one moment (ten minutes to midnight) there was a HUGE
boom and our lights flashed off for a brief second.
Just as I was deciding whether to get the candles out,
they came back on and the touch lamp beside my bed came
on past its most brilliant setting. (It had been off
prior to this, the power surge turned it on.) At that
boom, I came rising out of my bed literally shouting “In
Jesus Name!” several times. It was thunderous and
intimidating. I do not know if the transformer above
our street light got a surge or not, but it was
violent. Later I found out that the transformer next to
our pastor’s house had been struck at this time, and
their lights were out for several hours. They were
without electricity but they were safe. There were
homes and trees in the area that were struck by
lightning and also shattered windows.
I saw the
above quickened to mean:
9 to 1 = Psalms 91 for those who abide in Him.
Those who pray and watch, abiding in Him have the
promise of Psalm 91 and His protection, although
flashing and powerful circumstances around them may
become very loud and intimidating.
The water of united intercession will be vital
in keeping demonic fires under control.
The storm will not be over quickly. It may
last at least 4 years. (9-1 is 4 hours = 4 years)
Some of the children will be so safely kept
from the fear and intimidation of sudden events that
they will only see the glory of the Lord as He displays
His awesome power.
will go without electricity, some will not. Just as
lightning strikes, the storm effects will seem to hit
and miss from one place to another...although everyone
will be very aware of the potential danger.
