Reading Psalm 114 today I was struck by the word “flint”. I had read it many times before and I’ve been well aware of the water crisis for some time. To be honest, with the smorgasbord of prophetic events the water crisis in flint was somewhere near the bottom of the list. If I had such a list I’m sure it would be numbered in the hundreds, so we’ll just say it was about 200 deep.

I’m often accused of “over spiritualizing” things. Where you could say there might be instances where one takes a physical event too far into the ethereal, this is far more the exception than the rule. My charge to the vast majority is that they under spiritualize. Fortunately, few of you who peruse these pages fall into this camp.

Each participant went home and gathered all they could and shared with everyone else. Full Article Here
