Lightning Strikes Two Chicago Landmarks At The Same Time-What Is God Saying?

In these stunning pictures, a photographer captures lightning striking two Chicago landmarks at the same time, not once but twice.  The following pictures will make one stand in awe of God's power.

There  are no coincidences with God.  All through the Bible we read that God is a God of justice and anti-corruption.   Chicago, as everyone knows, is notorious for its corrupt political empire, and  is the former political base for many present day politicians who are very influential in Washington, D.C. politics or are  now operating out of Washington, D. C.  including the man occupying the White House, Barack Hussein Obama, and the White House Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel.  This is very interesting and caught my attention and I had to ask  myself "what is God saying" to us,  because not too long ago, lightning struck a BP  ship capturing oil from the blown out well in the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster on or about June 15, setting off a fire, putting to a halt the collection of oil by the vessel.

Bolt from the blue: Seen from the Hancock Tower, lighting strikes both the Willis Tower, right, and the Trump Tower in downtown Chicago as a severe storm rolls through the region last night
It was controversially renamed in 2009 after London-based broker Willis Group Holdings leased a portion of the building and obtained the naming rights. Many locals still refer to it as the Sears Tower.

Lightning streams across the sky towards downtown last night as one bolt appears to strike the Willis Tower, left, once again. Source

If you do a word search of  Scripture, you will find that God indeed does use hail and fire and brimstone to warn and speak to people, and often as a judgment upon the earth.

For instance, II Samuel 22:15 tells us that God sent out arrows, and scattered them; lightning, and discomfited them.

Psalm 18:14 tells us that God again sent out his arrows and scattered them; and he shot out lightning and discomfited them.

Pay particular attention to the word "discomfited" in the above two scriptures.  The original hebrew/greek concordence describes the definition of "discomfited" as:


A primitive root (compare H1949, H1993); properly to put in commotion; by implication to disturb, drive, destroy: - break, consume, crush, destroy, discomfit, trouble, vex.

And in Revelation 8:4-5 it reads: And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints ascended up before God out of the angel's hand.

And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.

Interesting.  We  had a jolt of an earthquake that covered a vast area of Canada and the United States of America, the same day as these lightning strikes in Chicago,  that was felt by millions of people in North Amerida,  including myself. 

From these three scriptures alone, and there are many more, it is clear that God does use lightning to confuse, destroy  and scatter enemies and get the attention of His people on the earth and is very active in what is happening in the Gulf of Mexico oil catastrophe, and the whole earth to bring His Word to pass.  God causes the lightning strike and He shoots it out, and we must   be alert  to what He is doing and what He is saying to us or we may miss it.
