We all know about the oman flood in 2007, Often called GONU Flood 2007
Recently a pastor who visited my house and who was ministering a church in Oman back in 2007 shared about an incident during the great oman GONU flood. I heard this testimonty from a pastor in Oman then and would like to share here.
It was during those days Ps B Samuel was minsitering a pentecostal church in Oman. One of his church member, Bro Raju George who shared his vision to many people in Oman about this great flood. He had prophecised about the flood coming in Oman while it was hot summar with 45 degree celcius plus. People thought he is crazy as in such hot summer how can it even rain? He went around informing big companies around about this flood, he even attempted to meet the king but couldnt and so told the gatekeepers.
The news spread across, newspapers published about it. Oman Palace Security questioned him and also keep in custody. He was charged as a threat /spy and his passport and work documents were all confisticated. He was a simple church member with no special position but was a prayer warrior. The pastor says he used to pray for every issue, he had a fixed prayer time – morning 3 am and afternoon 3 pm. His prophecy was accepted by his co believers with mixed reactions.
Eventualy the day passed by there was no rain. The authroties released him and he resumed his duty. However exactly after a month, same day there was flood and we all know about the disaster it brought with it. This incident was testified by many including the high officials. Many got to know about Jesus and the Living God.
I asked Pastor, why did his happen a month after? Well to his knowledge he says Bro Raju was put in a basement cellar, if flood would have come, he would have died as well. God simply pushed it a month off so Bro Raju could be saved. That makes sense for sure. I was told that the high officials and kings had to relocate to another palace. None of the beleivers died in this incident. It is also said that reward was sent to Bro Raju by the King. It is said that later stages high officials did consult him for couple of situations.
My Stand: God is same yesterday, today and forevermore. He still talks to his people through dreams and vision. All we need to do is LISTEN. We need to have a prayeful heart to listen to what our Lord wants to tell us and if we do then we along with our people and nation will be saved.
God bless you and strengthen your faith
