‘Prophetic Intercessor’ Sees Rainbow, Gets All Ridiculous

Anne Graham-Lotz, the daughter of Billy Graham, has been promoting “911: An Urgent Call to Pray for Jerusalem,” when people were supposed to pray and fast on September 1. And wouldn’t you know it, someone saw a rainbow that day so that proves God was listening to them!

For those of us who participated Monday in “911: An Urgent Call to Pray for Jerusalem,” we concluded with an expectancy that God would confirm that He had also heard our heart’s cry on behalf of the city and the people that He loves.

I received the following email from the same lovely lady who had prayer-walked downtown Washington, D.C., during 777. She had sent a picture she had taken on July 8 of a full, double rainbow over the nation’s capital, which we all took as a “sign” that God had indeed heard our prayers. On Monday after participating in “911: An Urgent Call to Pray for Jerusalem,” she wrote the following:

“It hasn’t rained here in DC for several weeks. But, this afternoon a storm swept through our nation’s capital. I saw several reports of a double rainbow over DC—again! Lots of folks posted photos of the rainbow on Twitter.

“Though I sadly missed seeing it with my own eyes, I smiled real big when I read the news. I’ve lived in this town nearly seven years and can attest to the fact rainbows do NOT happen here that often. My friend The Lord has sent us yet another gracious sign that He has heard our prayers.”

Could it possibly be that once again God has placed His initial confirmation of our prayers in the sky over our nation’s capital? To let us know that our prayers have moved heaven?

No, no, no. That means that God loves gay people. Or it means light was reflecting and refracting off water droplets after it rains. Yeah, I think I’ll go with that explanation. It has the great advantage of being accurate.

    Funny, on September 1 a federal court judge overturned Louisiana’s restrictive abortion law.

    Rainbow-worthy, I’d say.

    She needs to go to more Pride parades.

    Now, now, Ed! Don’t be unkind! These peoples’ god does so little for them, don’t begrudge them their happiness when he occasionally allows light to reflect and refract off water droplets!

    I thought it meant that God had just murdered everyone apart from one drunk and his family?

    The Lord made sure that you and your family did not see the sign. You are on his shit list, for blasphemy and Mammon worship (Idolatry). Have a nice day.

    Going off on a tangent, here is another big idiot:

    GodCorp really needs to fire its communications director. The guy sucks at his job.

  • dugglebogey

    For someone who’s supposed to be omnipotent, he’s pretty bad at communicating clearly.

  • Richard Smith

    So, the takeaway from this really is that the question, “Double rainbow! What does it mean?” is still unanswered…

  • iangould

    I saw a rainbow about 6AM the other morning. I’d been out on an all-night drunk and I was taking a short-cut down an alley between the last two strip clubs still open in Fortitude Valley.

    It’s good to know God approves.

    God fails even at Sarah Palin’s level of communication skills. She can at least validate her existence and what she said, even though she frequently doesn’t own up to what she communicates.

    When my boss wants to communicate with me, whether it’s an FYI, an attaboy, or a request to do something, he actually uses words. He will email me, call me on the phone, drop by my office, or perhaps ask me to come to his office to confer. Neither one of us is perfect, so occasionally we miscommunicate, but by and large he is able to convey to me what it is he needs to with little or no ambiguity.

    He doesn’t expect me to interpret a well-understood, commonplace natural phenomenon as really meaning, “Good job with the recent project,” or “I need your teaching observations of the part-time faculty ASAP.” Yet apparently, this is exactly how the omnipotent, omniscient creator of the universe chooses to convey crucial information.

    Gosh, rainbows are so rare! The only reasonable explanation for seeing one is that goddidit. I’m convinced!

  • grumpyoldfart

    If she’d stepped in dog shit, she’d find a way to turn it into a positive message from God.

    When Illinois got marriage equality I saw a pretty spectacular double rainbow.

    I joked that it was an approving sign from God, knowing that while I was joking about it there were a significant number of people that would have believed that. IF it coincided with something they supported, of course.

    Last time I saw a double rainbow was a couple of springs ago right after torrential rains had flooded much of the area. Yahweh’s word doesn’t mean much.

    In Genesis, when Yahweh wanted to tell people something, he’d just appear and tell them exactly what he wanted. He only seems to have gotten vague and cryptic with things like double rainbows or appearing on a tortilla wrap in recent years.

    I must have missed something recently — was Jerusalem in trouble?

  • naturalcynic

    And, depending on your perspective, that double rainbow was also over the White House.
