Self-declared prophets John Benefiel, Mike and Cindy Jacobs went on and on about how in 2007, they used one of their “Baal divorce decrees” to destroy the rule of Baal in Texas and Oklahoma, resulting in months of rains and floods. Which ended the drought. Oh, and prevented Oklahoma from going into recession.
“Literally the day after we used this Baal divorce decree in 2007,” Benefiel explained, “the rains came and we ended up having more rain between February and June of 2007 than any other twelve month period in history.”
On top of that, Benefiel’s efforts to divorce Baal also ended up protecting Oklahoma City from the global recession that hit in 2008.
“That is not an accident,” he said. “That’s God’s blessings.”
A couple questions come to mind. First, Texas has been in a drought for nearly 4 years now. Why didn’t these rains last long enough to keep that from happening? And in August, 2011 Benefiel was one of the organizers of Rick Perry’s famous prayer rally in Houston to pray for rain to end the drought. If he’s so all-powerful and his prayers can bring floods and prevent recessions, why didn’t it work? Why is Texas still in a major drought 2 1/2 years after he prayed to end it?
