Stunning Cloud Formation Appears Above Portugal, People Call It “The Hand Of God”

On Monday, the Portuguese were stunned by a terrifying cloud over the island of Madeira. The bright orange formation looked as if it was a burning clenched fist.

The cloud was spotted by weather blogger Rogerio Pacheco. His photos soon got attention on social media. People had all kinds of speculations, comparing the unusual cloud to anything from a “Hand of God” to a burning fist, or even a comet from the video game Final Fantasy.

“As soon as I saw the sky, I was immediately intrigued and I just had to grab my camera to take photo,” said Pacheco. “For me, the cloud looks like an outstretched hand with a fireball.”

If that's God's hand, then he must be about to punch someone!

Wouldn't it be more obvious it was his hand if it was white with pretty sun rays? I don't agree this is the hand of our God whatsoever.

The majority of mankind , has no ideal what is and has been happening all over the earth.. WWIII a spirtual war was launched by the U.S military, along with the worldwide Global Alliance, the day Pres Trump was sworn in. For centuries, the thirteen wealthest families ruled the entire world. Not any national leader.. they were all puppets... the all were satanist. Today 12/21/2021 begins the most static ritual sacrifies of mulitple human beings. this horror has been going on for centuries, if biblical times.. they rape, sodimze and butcher alive babies , children and teens.... this evil is not being removed by the hand of almighty God. His legions of celestrial beings, are fighting side by side with the EARTH ALLIANCE TO ERADICATED ALL OF THESE DEMONS FROM THE PLANT. This week, is the most dangerous time for all humanity. Because these evil demonic children know they are on their last breath. Two of the mostly deadly strongholds left are area 51 and the entire Horn of Afric

The Suns reflection on the cloud really makes it look like fire. I think God is trying to get His point across.
