When you were a child, you might have laid on the lawn and imagined that cloud formations resembled certain things. You realized that there was no significance to clouds that looked like things. They were neat, but they were not meaningful. And you were five, but you knew at the end of the day, they were amorphous blobs of water vapor that shaped and shifted by the wind. Charismatics, on the other hand, are on the constant lookout for omens and signs (which Jesus said makes them perverse – Matthew 17:17). Recently, a cloud formed over Texas that vaguely resembles an angel, and they have gone giddy with excitement and speculation as to what it means.
Pulpit & Pen has specialized in things like cloud interpretation through our Charismatic Omen Interpretation and Superstition Division for some time. After careful analysis of the photograph, we have determined that it is not photoshopped. We have also been able to ascertain its meaning. Those are stratocumulus clouds and it means that rain is unlikely, but it may be a signal of a changing meteorological weather pattern. Often appearing on the tail end of precipitation or prior to a storm front, the wavey layers of clouds can be accompanied by later thunderheads or gusts of wind. It is not to be confused with the altocumulus cloud, which is similar but smaller and lighter in color.
That’s the meaning of this cloud. Because, you know, it’s a cloud.
For charismatic believers, who reject the sufficiency of Scripture, it’s something more. Charisma Mag reports charismatics claiming that “Our Lord Jesus Christ is sending a message to all of us through the Angel above.”
You are wearied with your many counsels; let them stand forth and save you, those who divide the heavens, who gaze at the stars, who at the new moons make known what shall come upon you. – Isaiah 47:13
