This is day 58 of the BP oil fiasco. An environmental crisis of epic proportions.
At this point, I beginning to wonder if there is anything that can be done by the people who hear from God. It may sound like lunacy but maybe someone who has the special gift of the Spirit like prophecy or word of knowledge (ref: I Corinthians 12) can offer some insight.
As crazy as it sounds, God can do anything. One of the more interesting Old Testament stories I know is found in II Kings 6:1-7 (NLT)
1 One day the group of prophets came to Elisha and told him, “As you can see, this place where we meet with you is too small. 2 Let’s go down to the Jordan River, where there are plenty of logs. There we can build a new place for us to meet.”
“All right,” he told them, “go ahead.”
3 “Please come with us,” someone suggested.
“I will,” he said. 4 So he went with them.
When they arrived at the Jordan, they began cutting down trees. 5 But as one of them was cutting a tree, his ax head fell into the river. “Oh, sir!” he cried. “It was a borrowed ax!”
6 “Where did it fall?” the man of God asked. When he showed him the place, Elisha cut a stick and threw it into the water at that spot. Then the ax head floated to the surface. 7 “Grab it,” Elisha said. And the man reached out and grabbed it.
So I say, if God can make an ax head float, He can give some kind of solution to this current crisis.
What do you think?
