OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. (CBS Houston) – A pastor said that he caused massive flooding after his attempt to remove demons from the United States worked a little too well.

Church on the Rock Pastor John Benefiel explained that he had used a “divorce decree” to sever a demon’s hold on drought-stricken states like Texas and Oklahoma on the Christian Internet broadcast Generals International.

“There was no rain in sight, no rain forecast at all,” Benefiel said on the Christian Internet broadcast Generals International. “But literally the day after we first used this Baal divorce decree in 2007 — we declared it in a meeting together — the rains came. And we ended up having more rain between February and June of 2007 than any other 12 month period in history.”

He added that the ceremony was repeated in Missouri, Texas and Kansas.

“And at one point and every lake of Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri were at or above flood stage,” Benefiel shared. “And that’s what Chuck [Pierce] had prophecized, that when you see this happen, those are areas targeted for a Holy Spirit invasion.”

He claimed that Oklahoma was protected from the recession of 2008 because of the effects of the “divorce decree” lasting into the next year.

Benefiel and his wife, Judith, founded Church on the Rock in 1991.
