Girl has trouble keeping feet on the ground
EAP: Sydney 25 Nov 2004. 11 year old Petersham schoolgirl Lisa Hemmings isn't as sure footed as she used to be but evangelicals are excited that Lisa's problems may be a sign of things to come. Lisa has episodes of levitating a couple of inches above the ground. "I may be walking along the street when suddenly my foot can not find the path and I am moving my feet through thin air. It's like I'm in space trying to move by waving my arms and legs. It happens when I pray at church. Typically I rise about 1/2 an inch above the pew but kneeling is most comfortable now when my knees do not touch the floor. I can now make myself levitate just by thinking about Jesus". But members of the Petersham Baptist Church where Lisa's family worships have interpreted Lisa's as a subtle prerapture tremor before the big rapture quake.
Says Lisa, "The first time it happened I was walking with some friends along New Canterbury Road near the corner of Livingston Road and I screamed. Everyone on the street turned around and looked but there was Marcia next to me dumbfounded mouth wide open just looking at my feet swinging back and forth 2 inches above the ground". According to Lisa who no longer wear dresses the episodes started on the Friday before the reelection of the Howard Liberal government and have become more frequent since the reelection of Bush. This has been met with great excitement as a sign that Jesus is moving national and international politics in accordance to his divine plan. Mr David Davies, pastor of the Petersham Baptist believes that all the signs point to these being the last days. "God will carry Bush and his program of fighting the Antichrist and he will then carry all of us to his kingdom" according to Davies.
Davies also knows that Osama Bin Laden is the Antichrist. He concluded this by talking to Lisa who is full of the holy spirit. "According to her she can only cut a levitating episode short by thinking of Osama because then she starts to feel heavy with his wickedness and thoughts of anyone else do not have the same effect on her", says Davies. He continues, "Jesus will throw the Antichrist into his lake of fire and all will rise as he sinks. A fire lit by Bush - hallelujah".
Lisa takes her saviour very seriously and has been called the most perfect child in the world. Her mother can not recall even one discipline episode. She has the most perfect angel voice and she sings regularly in church choirs. Last Saturday she was invited to sing at a Hillsong Church service before 20,000 people during which she felt very light and was visibly seen to rise about 3 inches for a full minute. Angels were seen to be whizzing around crowd and overhead of Lisa. This particular levitation was of a record time although not a record height. That happened in Casserly Park in Stanmore where she was seen to rise 1 foot for a shorter time.
According to Davies, Lisa is full of the holy spirit and it is the force of this spirit that will become stronger than the force of gravity. "It is working first on the most pure but will eventually raise all Christians up to the lord for the hereafter. The flipping point is near. It will be like a flipping of the poles and those weighed down with their wicked ways will be left behind", says Davies. ews of the light uplifting spirit present in Lisa has caused attendance at the Baptist Church to overflow onto The Boulevarde and around the Hunter Street corner.
What is Lisa's advice? Be prepared for the rapture and pray to Jesus. Pastor Davies has advised all female members of the congregation to not wear dresses anymore in case of rapture, in case they have the same uplifting experience as Lisa.

If this story is even true. This would not appear to be by the power of God. I would be intrested in knowing what type of church she attends or what website you got this off of.

Ok, you got me on this . . . I was just pulling y'all's legs . . .
I got it from the atheist newsgroup on Usenet. Some guy there writes these stories up, and sometimes they migrate from the Usenet to urban legends, make the rounds on TV news reports, too.
This tale got posted at
and was broadcast on TV (so I'm told):
ARKANSAS CITY (EAP) -- A Little Rock woman was killed yesterday after
leaping through her moving car's sun roof during an incident best
described as "a mistaken rapture" by dozens of eye witnesses. Thirteen
other people were injured after a twenty-car pile up resulted from
people trying to avoid hitting the woman who was apparently convinced
that the rapture was occurring when she saw twelve people floating up
into the air, and then passed a man on the side of the road who she
claimed was Jesus.
"She started screaming "He's back, He's back" and climbed right out of
the sunroof and jumped off the roof of the car," said Everett
Williams, husband of 28-year-old Georgann Williams who was pronounced
dead at the scene. "I was slowing down but she wouldn't wait till I
stopped," Williams said. She thought the rapture was happening and was
convinced that Jesus was gonna lift her up into the sky," he went on
"This is the strangest thing I've seen since I've been on the
force," said Paul Madison, first officer on the scene. Madison
questioned the man who looked like Jesus and discovered that he was
dressed up as Jesus and was on his way to a toga costume party when
the tarp covering the bed of his pickup truck came loose and released
twelve blow up sex dolls filled with helium which floated up into the
Ernie Jenkins, 32, of Fort Smith, who's been told by several of his
friends that he looks like Jesus, pulled over and lifted his arms into
the air in frustration, and said, "Come back here," just as the
Williams' car passed him, and Mrs. Williams was sure that it was Jesus
lifting people up into the sky as they passed by him, according to her
husband, who says his wife loved Jesus more than anything else. When
asked for comments about the twelve sex dolls, Jenkins replied, "This
is all just too weird for me. I never expected anything like this to
It's kinda funny because after you read a few entries from the Darwin Awards http://www.darwinawards.com/ you realize that there are lots of people out there who are abundantly capable of craziness like this, and lots of churches that resemble the Landover Baptist Church www.landoverbaptist.org/
Ya, this is a weird f'in planet . . .
