Last week, self-proclaimed “prophetess” and “weather warrior” Kat Kerr posted a video on her Facebook page, claiming that her prayers has prevented Hurricane Lane from striking Hawaii. Kerr was so confident of her supernatural powers that she used the video to also take authority over Florence, which was still a tropical storm at the time, commanding it to weaken and dissipate.
“We’re going to take authority over Florence and we say you will become nothing,” Kerr proclaimed. “You will not do destruction to land or to people or to property. We command the millibars to rise, rise, rise in Florence. You rise, millibars! You dissipate that storm, you get it downgraded, downgraded, downgraded.”
Like her efforts to “take authority” over Subtropical Storm Alberto, Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano, and the wildfires in California, Kerr’s commands did not have much of an effect, as Florence has since strengthened into a Category 4 hurricane that is predicted to strike North and South Carolina in the coming days. As such, Kerr has begun posting regular updates on her Facebook page in which she continues to order Florence away from land and to predict that her prayers will be so effective that even the meteorologists won’t be able to explain what happened to the storm.
“We’re not going to agree with any of the forecasts they are giving for that storm, the categories it is going to get to, the damage it is going to do, the flooding it’s going to do,” Kerr declared. “We are crushing it.”
“This is not a game,” she said. “We take authority over Florence and we say, ‘You will not grow, you will not hit land, you will not do destructive things to America or anywhere.’ … As a member of the body of Christ, I have authority over the storms and right now, I take authority over Florence, over any of the demonic army controlling it and powering it and steering it and I say, ‘No, you do not have authority over the weather, but we do.'”
“It will be diminished and downgraded, downgraded, downgraded,” Kerr added. “We say Florence will come to nothing and it will be quickly and it will be seen by everyone that goes online, anyone who watches the weather, the weather [reporters] will be forced for forecast it, they will be forced to talk about it. This is why God is doing this, so they will physically see that we, as believers, have authority over the weather.”
