Christ Statue Struck By Lighting: Rain & Hail Continue :: By Jim Towers

After a demon-worshiping Mardi Gra parade in Brazil, lightning struck the statue of Christ on top of Mount Corcovado in Rio de Janeiro. Shortly after that, rain began falling in buckets. Woah!… Wait! (Even as I write about this event) “Unbreak My Heart” is playing on the radio, and the first words I hear are, “Don’t leave me out in the rain – come back again.” (I don’t know about you, but things like this are happening at a phenomenal rate in my life.) The song sounds as if God Himself is crying out through the heart-rending song by Toni Braxton.

As I listen to the song, it is as if rather than losing His temper completely, God is instead heartbroken by our having kicked him out of our lives and is pleading with us to return to Him. Just listen to that song on the internet, and you’ll see what I mean. The song made me feel sorry for our wonderful, benevolent, and loving creator who created our planet and everything in it – to our benefit.


After a similar devil-worshiping Mardi Gras event in Ft. Meyers, it rained like hell. Thankfully, we are located about fifty miles away. Across the state, Miami and Ft. Lauderdale were inundated with rain for two days as well. Mardi Gras had to be postponed in Louisiana as buckets of water rained from the sky.

When will people learn that you can’t spit in God’s eye and get away with it?

Accordingly, San Deigo is drenched in rain, and there is flotsam and debris everywhere. In other states across our supposed “Christian” nation, bridges have been wiped out across the land – and earthquakes are happening in areas not known for earthquakes – even New York.

Los Angeles is now flooded as well – as two powerful storms referred to as “Pineapple Express” pounded it and the surrounding areas one after the other with heavy rain. Landslides send houses tumbling, and mud is car bumper-deep in many places.

In Saudi Arabia, the desert country was flooded and pounded by hail, as was Gaza and Israel, but the farmers in Israel had been praying for rain for crops that were dry – and they got plenty of it, especially in the fertile areas where it was much needed – which was an unusual happening indeed.

Mecca is recovering after the intense hailstorm and rain that had worshipers running, slipping, sliding, and falling to the pavement surrounding the Kaaba in Mecca after rain cascaded down and the wind blew ferociously in this desert country that gets very little rain yearly. Even camels were trying to swim – something they never had to do before. Swollen rivers from cascading rain came suddenly from out of nowhere. (You can view that event and others like it on my website.)

Humanly speaking, I try to discount these events and others like them as coincidence – but it’s a hard thing to do when they happen over and over and with greater and greater intensity as time marches on toward the coming greater judgments about to unfurl in the world.

God really doesn’t want to hurt us, but he has no choice, as He created a bunch of ungrateful fools and monsters that only Christ can redeem.

Because of my warnings as of late, I’ve been thought of as radical when it comes to spiritual things, and some – even in the church- can’t understand where I’m coming from. This is surprising since they, of all people, should know that such things are going to happen. Albeit, most seldom, if ever, read the Holy Scriptures. But hopefully, the time is coming when they will have the scales fall off their eyes, as did mine. (I was once a nominal Christian, too – trying to abide by the Bible playbook – but to no avail. Hence, Jesus told us, “You must be born again,” and this can only happen when we come to God with a sorry and contrite heart, confessing our sins to God, being truly sorry, and receiving the pardon that Jesus Christ offers.

Once that happens, you will see what life is truly all about. Acquisition of things and ambitions will suddenly fall away, and your knees will buckle in fear, your head will spin, and you will bury your head in your hands, thinking you’ve gone mad because, for the first time in your life, you can see things as they really are. God has finally become a reality.

So, what are we to make of all this? If we are honest, we will have to say, “Hey, there is something going on – and it can’t bode well for humanity…. Duh.

Imagine then what is in store for us if we don’t repent. The book of Revelation paints a vivid picture of what is coming to pass in these Last Days. Other more dramatic events will take place on top of what’s happening today.

New believers who have finally repented and acknowledged Christ will go through various hardships as well, and you don’t want to be here for that. Check it out.

Even a famous Rabbi says that heavy rains are a sign that the Final Redemption is imminent.

Midrash Bereshit Rabbah states that in the end of days, God will break the covenant he made with the nations of the world after Noah left the ark. Flooding will appear to destroy parts of the world like never before seen since the floods in the days of Noah. At the same time, rains will appear as a comfort for the people of Israel. The Midrash notes that the covenant God made with Noah was “for the generations of the world” (Geneses 9:12). The Midrash states that this will end when the Messiah arrives to bring the final redemption. “And the final flood will begin on the same day that the flood of Noah ended; the 17th of Sivan,” the website added.

So, in closing, I ask, what are you waiting for? Don’t be a stiff-necked doofus. Make your peace with God and avoid the coming judgments, for God’s sake!
