''I thank the Lord Jesus Christ for saving me from my sins and enabling me to persevere. I thank the Lord for my loving parents, my loving sisters. I also thank the Lord for giving me an excellent wife and three wonderful children. Two of the last things I'd like to say, if you believe abortion is a lethal force, you should oppose the force and do what you have to do to stop it. May God help you to protect the unborn as you would want to be protected.'' Last words of American Martyr Paul Hill. September 3rd 2003 AD Of whom the world was not worthy Hebrews 11:38
September 3, 2003 AD Around 5:45 PM a large rainbow appeared over Florida State Prison, then around 6 PM a great storm arose and the sky turned black. I remarked to Paul's lawyer that this is like when Jesus was crucified, the sky turning black. While I was in the observation room, the lights flickered two or three times; this happened right before Paul spoke his 'last words'. I sat wondering if I would be sitting in the dark and started thinking whether the prison had back up generators; and if so, would they go ahead with the execution. From reports outside, both from media and Paul's friends, some long bolts of lightning happened around 6 PM, so close that smell from the lightning bolts was obvious. Another appeared to hit close to the prison itself. A few minutes after 6, the storm ended as suddenly as it started and then began a gentle rain. I do not think this was coincidence. DS
A few minutes before Paul Hill was executed (around 6 PM) the sky turned black and a storm suddendly came up. Immediate loud thunder, lighting and pouring rain soaked the area around the prison. The sudden storm left just as quickly as it came minutes after Paul's was put to death by the State of Florida. Bright sunlight both before and after this storm which only lasted a few minutes while Paul was being executed.
