Jessilyn Justice : Dec 6, 2017  Charisma News

In video footage of the amazing feat, commenters say it's the hand of God keeping the cross away from the blaze.

According to the Los Angeles Times, thousands of homes were still threatened by flames in Ventura, County, California, as 27,000 people were forced to flee, a firefighter was injured and Gov. Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency. But the flames did not so much as lick the cross.

Stories say the large wooden cross was planted on top of a hill overlooking the Mission San Buenaventura church soon after the Mission's funding as a road sign for travelers in search of the Mission, according to a local news organization.

In video footage of the amazing feat, commenters say it's the hand of God keeping the cross away from the blaze.

"God is good! Please put Your hands on Ventura County," says one person.

Another writes, "I'm so thankful for the cross, I've had so many memories and all wonderful. I will continue to pray for everyone and everything. God Bless."
