DC Storm - July 1, 2015
In the middle of the night, in July’s opening moments, the most violent complex of storms since the June 2012 derecho blasted the immediate D.C. area. It downed scores of trees and produced blinding rain and almost non-stop lightning as it swept straight up the I-95 corridor from near Dale City through the District and into Baltimore.
This morning, area utilities, including Pepco, are still dealing with thousands without electricity.
Many eyewitnesses, awakened and rattled by the storm, described it as the scariest they could recall - jarred by the deafening thunder, continuous lightning, pounding rain and roaring winds.

In my autobiographical book Evidence of Things Unseen, I recounted how the Father on numerous occasions used severe storms in the natural to forecast spiritual storms that I was about to pass through. I have a strong sense that yesterday’s early morning storm in Washington, D.C., has been given as a predictor of severe events that are about to befall the nation. The comments posted by residents who experienced the storm provide a reference to the severity of the things to come.
Most insane storm I have ever seen. Crazy lightning, wind, and rain in Pentagon City.
I've been through hurricanes and derechos. I've never seen anything like this. Lightning flashing like paparazzi.
That's the first time I've been legitimately frightened by a storm since I moved out to DC 10 yrs ago. That was bonkers.
Following the Supreme Court ruling which forces the recognition of homosexual marriage on all 50 states of America, it should surprise no one that there will be dire judgments to follow swiftly on the heels of this national disgrace. Due to the sins of the nation, and especially those identifying as Christians in America, Yahweh will not leave the country unpunished. Yahweh’s voice is heard in the thunder, His presence observed in the flashes of lightning.
And all the people perceived the thunder and the lightning flashes and the sound of the trumpet and the mountain smoking; and when the people saw it, they trembled and stood at a distance. Then they said to Moses, “Speak to us yourself and we will listen; but let not God speak to us, lest we die.”
II Samuel 22:14-15
Yahweh thundered from heaven, and the Most High uttered His voice. And He sent out arrows, and scattered them, lightning, and routed them.
The actions of the church in America demand judgment. In one of the most egregious acts of profaning that which is holy I have ever heard of, a female minister and her assistants from a Methodist Church in Washington, D.C., went into the streets of the nation’s capital in front of the Supreme Court building and served holy communion to homosexuals and their supporters after the homosexual marriage ruling was announced.
I Corinthians 11:27
Therefore whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner, shall be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord.
It is significant that the bread used in this communion is leavened. This is in contradiction to the Biblical type where the body of Christ was represented by unleavened bread. The leaven represents the presence of sin. In Christ there was no sin. We are told that “He was tempted in all ways as we are, yet without sin.” Consequently, the bread representing the true body of Christ had to be devoid of leaven.
Not so with the bread representing the apostate body of Christ in America. The church is thoroughly leavened with sin. There is no abomination it will not sanction, no obscenity it will not embrace. Yahweh will not remain silent while mockers profane that which is holy. Yesterday I received the following words which a brother in Christ forwarded to me. They were written by Michael Boldea, the grandson of Dmitru Duduman, the Romanian minister who prophesied Yahweh’s judgment upon an America which Yahweh referred to as Sodom.
July, 1 2015
If your church cannot distinguish between the light and the darkness why are you still calling it your church?
If your pastor never mentions the name Jesus why are you still calling him your pastor?
If your denomination mocks and rejects the reality of the Holy Spirit why are you still calling it your denomination?
There comes a point when we become complicit. There comes a point wherein we cross the line from observer to participant. There comes a point wherein our inaction makes us just as guilty as those with blood on their hands, just as guilty as those who insist upon a Jesus not of Scripture but of their own making.
These are the thoughts which weighed heavy on my heart this morning, and I decided to share them. Brace yourselves dear souls, brace yourselves. The storm is here!
With love in Christ,
Michael Boldea Jr.
Did you note the last words written by Michael Boldea?
THE STORM IS HERE!
One of the ways in which Yahweh brings judgment to a nation or people who have given themselves over to the pursuit of wickedness, who mock all that is holy, and profane all that is pure, is to deliver them into the hands of wicked men who are skilled in destruction.
“I shall pour out My indignation on you; I shall blow on you with the fire of My wrath, and I shall give you into the hand of brutal men, skilled in destruction. You will be fuel for the fire; your blood will be in the midst of the land. You will not be remembered, for I, Yahweh, have spoken.”
America has been delivered into the hands of brutal men who are skilled in destruction. These men (and women) sit in the White House, in the Congress, on the Supreme Court bench. They fill the chief positions on Wall Street. They are the willing servants of Satan. They serve an evil master, and they come only to kill, steal, and destroy. Because America has despised righteousness, trampled on the rights of the poor and defenseless, pursued sensuality and materialism, embraced perversions and impurity, while spreading the same wickedness throughout the world, Yahweh has given her into the hands of men who are intent on her complete debasement and destruction.
In past posts such as Have You Been Played Lately?, I shared that Americans are being deceived en masse. Their own government is creating the calamities and enemies they say they must fight against. The abomination known as ISIS is a creation of the CIA, U.S. military, and other factions within the American government. Following is an excerpt from that post.
This media and government portrayal of events simply does not stand up to scrutiny. It has been reported on certain alternative news sites that ISIS was actually trained by the CIA and American military in the training camps set-up in Jordan. These training camps were ostensibly to train and equip the Syrian resistance seeking to overthrow Bashar Assad, but in actuality they have been used to train members of ISIS. When the troops were trained, they needed massive amounts of equipment. Where were they to get it? It was readily available to them at depots all across Iraq where the Americans left it. ISIS simply waltzed in and took it. If anyone believes they did this apart from the U.S. government’s approval, they are deceived. The media is controlled by the same shadow government that controls the governments of nations, including the United States. They feed people lies to create a false view of world events that hides their complicity in orchestrating the very things that the masses of people are taught to fear.
Now, in the past few days, political figures from the same American government that created ISIS have been making the rounds of the media and news broadcasters warning of a threat of ISIS committing terrorist acts on American soil over the 4th of July holiday.
July 4th Attack on U.S. Soil a Legitimate Threat
Note especially the emphasis on the Internet in these reporters’ and government officials’ words. The government creates crises in order to advance their agenda. They want to restrict what types of information can be shared on the Internet, so they must create the perception in the minds of the public citizenry that an unregulated Internet is a threat to their personal safety. In the recent shooting at the “Mother” Emanuel A.M.E. church in Charleston, the media and government repeatedly stated that Dylann Roof had been radicalized over the Internet as he interacted with a white supremacist organization. Some politicians called for greater Internet censorship in the wake of the shootings, but there is strong resistance to this idea among Americans. Consequently, greater atrocities must be committed until the idea of a controlled flow of information on the Internet becomes not only acceptable, but desirable, for Americans.
One brother in Christ sent me a link to a couple of posts where militia groups in America are reporting that the FBI has contacted them asking for their assistance in acting as observation posts during this 4th of July holiday. The following was posted 3 days ago.
ALERT!!!!! ATTENTION ALL MILITIA, OATHKEEPERS and PATRIOT GROUPS.
As of 9:00 A.M. Central time I was contacted by the FBI to activate every Militia and Patriot groups in the U.S. for a eyes and ears OP (Observation Post) over the 4th of July holiday for possible terrorist attacks(ISIS in nature). The threat level is very high. We need people to monitor the internet and groups to monitor all activities nation wide. This is the procedure in which we participate. I have already contacted many prominent Patriot and Militia leaders.
1. Wear plain cloths (sic).
2. Carry local Sheriffs Departments and local FBI contact numbers. If we see anything suspicious call the Sheriff first and then the FBI. Do not engage. Just monitor the situation until the Sheriff and FBI get to the scene.
3. If you are faced with an eminent (sic) attack and you are legally armed please protect life. Be in groups so at least someone can get the Sheriff and FBI to the scene.
I want to note that this is the first time in our lifetimes the FBI has reached out for the help of every Militia unit and Patriotic groups to help guard our Nation. Please conduct yourselves as the Patriots we all are and do this with honor and integrity. Another stepping stone for us all.
This will take a lot of team work so do not let personal feelings get in our way.
We got (sic) work to do Patriots so lets get to work protecting this nation in a coordinated effort with Law enforcement local, State and Federal.. We got a job to do Patriots.. Salute..
PLEASE SHARE this must go viral..
Note once again the call to “monitor the Internet.” This focus on the Internet is intended to create the perception that it is a breeding ground for terrorists and for all forms of hate speech and ideology. Crises have to be fabricated to press this idea upon the public psyche. Then the solution of an Internet where speech is controlled (i.e., censored), will become palatable to the populace.
As disciples of Christ, we are called to “be wise as serpents, yet harmless as doves.” Yahshua instructed His disciples to “beware of men” (Matthew 10:16-17). It is the will of God that His people walk wisely and “above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation” (Philippians 2:15). It is a time to be sober, to be vigilant. As I have mentioned previously, this present time is given to us to prepare for the storms about to befall the nations. It is not a time for frivolity, for engagement in pastimes, in revelries, in careless living.
The following prophetic experience and word was sent to me by a brother in Christ just as I was completing this post. It emphasizes these last points I have written. Many are oblivious to the slaughter at hand. Many are neglecting to be heedful to the evidence and the signs all around them. Come out from among those dead churches that lull people into a false sense of security. Come out from the churches that are compromising with sin and with a dark and perverse society. It is a time to be separate, to walk closely to the Father.
Thanks to John, Jeff, Lisa, and Gwen, for links to stories in this post.
What follows is the word sent to be my Tom Killoran. He wrote these things on December 27, 2014.
“And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth distress of nations...”
A Modern Parable
A few years ago I was driving in the early morning on a rural connecting highway through the Cascade mountain range in the Pacific Northwest. It was just becoming daylight, and the green hills and pastures rose to the mountains in the background. Off to my left I spotted a herd of buffalo peacefully grazing the dew-soaked, lush green grass that carpeted the hillside on which they stood. I also noticed this was a fenced-in pasture, not open range where one might imagine such a sight. This was obviously a ranch.
What caught my eye next was the huge billboard-sized sign standing in the center of the pasture, built large enough to be easily noticed and read from the cars and trucks making their way through the mountains. The sign simply read, “Buffalo Meat for Sale,” along with a phone number at the bottom. Contentedly grazing all around the large posts that held the sign aloft was this hapless congregation of unsuspecting buffalo.
I was struck by the irony. “If only those buffalo could understand that sign,” I thought to myself, “they wouldn’t be standing around stuffing their collective faces. They would be getting the hell out of there.” But they continued to go about their business as usual, ignorant of the fact that looming over their heads was the very sign that spelled their impending destruction.
Around which signs are we grazing?
“When it is evening, you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red.’ And in the morning, ‘It will be stormy today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times...”
A Prophetic Dream
Not long ago, the Lord gave me this dream:
“I was walking with a couple of people, one who was supposedly my father, but didn’t look like him, and the other a friend, but not anyone I actually know. When my cell phone rang, I left them momentarily, crossed the street and walked along another road while I spoke with a friend. This road was slightly downhill, headed out across a shallow valley that rose to the hills on the far side. As I walked along I looked up and across to the far horizon, and I saw that it was in flames from left to right as far as I could see. The flames were huge, consuming everything in their path. The wind was blowing in my face, so I knew the firestorm was heading my way. I told the person on the phone that there was an enormous fire and that I had to go immediately. I closed the phone, turned on my heels and began to walk quickly back to where I had left my companions.
“As I returned, I saw that a policeman was setting up a roadblock on the road leading towards the fire. I assumed he must know something about it, so I asked the officer, ‘How far away is the fire?’ He answered me, ‘It is 7 nautical miles away.’ I then asked, ‘How long until it gets here?’ His reply: ‘The wind is blowing at 7 knots.’ As I walked on I understood that we had about an hour before the flames would be upon us.
“I turned left at the intersection, so I was now walking parallel to the fire line, not away from it. I came to the two companions I had just been with, and told them that we had to get out of there right away because of the fire that was coming. Both of them hesitated and would not move or answer me. They either didn’t believe me or didn’t think it was really that bad.
“I looked down the road on which we were standing that ran parallel to the fire. It was a beautiful day and the sidewalks were full of people going about their business, seemingly unaware of the impending danger. In my dream, this view down the street revealed that there were no buildings or sidewalks on the side of the road toward the fire, so the coming inferno should have been visible to anyone who would bother to look. My “father” and “friend” did not move. In the dream I wondered if we were to travel along that road with everyone else, just going faster and farther, if we could escape the fire. I was wanting to compromise for the sake of my father and friend. However, in my spirit I knew it wasn’t the direction we needed to go.”
The dream ends here.
Understanding the Dream
Beyond the obvious understanding that no one took notice of the danger that was coming or would believe the warning I gave, there are several significant things being revealed by the dream.
First, the two companions I was with. One of those seemed to be my father, but didn’t look anything like him. The understanding I have is that this person represents my family generally. The same with the other companion who in the dream was my best friend, but didn’t look like anyone I knew. He represents my friends, generally.
The person on the cell phone represented a friend that I had to immediately leave behind in order to tend to the business at hand. Some friendships have the capacity to delay or distract an immediate response, and must be given up in the process.
The flames on the horizon which stretched right to left, end to end, are coming conflicts that will soon envelope the world. This may possibly be the tribulation. It is coming, but is not here yet.
When I asked the police officer the distance from the fire, his answer was that it was “seven nautical miles” away. This was very specific in the dream, and at first seemed a strange answer. Likewise his answer to my question as to the time of its arrival: “The wind is blowing at seven knots”. These are navigational terms related to plotting courses upon the surface of the earth, both by aircraft and seagoing ships. My understanding is this represents a coming firestorm that is literally navigating the world, and the US will not be exempt. It will soon come upon us.
With the wind blowing at seven knots, and the fire being seven nautical miles away, the implication in the dream is that the fire would be upon us in one hour. Literally, the hour is upon us. The time is short.
When I came back to my companions, they would neither answer me nor move. The Lord is clearly showing me that most of my family and friends will not believe me. Very few, if any, will. This will be true of anyone who believes the time is short and the danger is near and makes an effort to warn others... don’t expect many to believe you. They didn’t believe Noah. Most of God’s prophets went away ignored and ridiculed. It won’t be any different, even when the danger is in sight.
This is the meaning of the street scene in my dream: When I couldn’t get my “family” or my “friends” to respond to my warning, I looked for another way. My temptation was to go the direction of all the others, which was right down the street parallel to the fire that was approaching. In the dream, all the stores and shops were on the right side of the street, and the sidewalk was chock full of people walking in the sunshine. Across the street to the left, which was the side toward the approaching fire, there were no shops or buildings of any kind, giving a clear view across the valley to the horizon in the distance with its consuming flames.
But no one was looking in that direction! The approaching fire was there to see, but no one bothered to look that way. They were all too busy enjoying the shopping and the sunshine. They were so occupied with life, so busy with living, they failed to read the sign of their impending destruction.
“As it was in the days of Noah...”
