Lightning strikes Vatican after Pope Benedict resigns, What does that mean?
A lightning strikes St Peter's dome at the Vatican an Hours after Pope Benedict XVI announced that he will resign as leader of the Catholic Church. What do you think is the meaning of that lightning?
I think that's crazy coincidence. I think if God was going to send a message, it would have come in the form of a volcano or an earthquake!
God sends messages that we as a nation are seeing right now: crime, murder, hate etc. If we all would keep the seventh day holy and keep His commands, earth would fare better.
Well God maybe has no intention also of killing those people residing on that place.
Never said that He did, because He doesn't. He Himself gave the 6th commandment.
It means nothing other than that is the place the lightning struck at that time.
It means bad weather is coming in terms of thunder and rain.
Normally you count the seconds in between the lightening and the thunder, to estimate how far away the bad weather really is.
If it means anything else but a change in weather, the future will tell I'm sure:-)
Wow. I think coincidence. But, what a beautiful picture to capture it.
I will probably have the least popular answer here but I believe, since God controls lightening, it's very possible He did send a message with the lightening, however I am not sure what that message is at this time. But something is going down.
I believe it was more than just a coincidence. Powerful forces were at work here.
The top of the dome at St. Peter's Basilica is 452 feet high and capped with a lightning rod. It is designed to be struck by lightning, and like most tall structures it is struck by lightning many times per year.
It just so happened that this storm rolled in when a lot of photographers were covering the Vatican after the Pope's resignation. So there were probably dozens if not hundreds of cameras aimed at the dome that night. It's almost inevitable that one of them captured this image.
In the bible, lightning and/or thunder emits from and around the Throne of God. These symbolically represent "Judgement; God's Voice". The pope claims he prayed with a sincere conscience and felt he had to resign. Could be he refused to head a "religiously hypocritical" organization due to all of the child sex scandals, muslims and islams offended by him, and etc etc etc. The "son of perdition" and "the harlot" biblically and historically point to the papacy; Daniel 7:25 predicts the papacy, as it is the ONLY religious organization to ever "rewrite" and "change" the Word of God. Read Revelation chapters 17 and 18. Revelation 13:18 is NOT the devil's number. The number 666 is the totalled numerical sum of the popes title on his mitre: vicarius felei dei, "vicar of god". I=1 u/v=5 c=100 d=500 L=50. The vatican teaches nonscriptural contexts and doctrines
That is definitely not an omen. It is just coincidence. A natural event at work does not mean that people have to be affected.
It is a connection between heaven and earth.
The balance of Yin & Yang.

According to Pope Benedict XVI today, abortion and same-sex marriage are some of the most "insidious and dangerous" threats facing the world today. Thoughts anyone?

yeah I know this has been talked about. I really think the next pope will be a very liberal one which I think a lot of people will like. Just a feeling. What do you think?
