THUNDER AND POWER

EXPERIENCE: HIS THUNDEROUS VOICE

One night I had a series of events take place. Here they are in chronological order:

1.) I had been thinking about Annie’s Vision where He dwells in His cloud, directly over earth and the people do not know He is so near. (Note, this vision was recorded in the last Ears2Hear post, titled His Cloud Descends.)

2.) As I was going to bed, Wayne said to me, "Fear not, God is with you." That was a very strange thing for him to say to me, as I was not feeling afraid of anything, and I am rarely afraid. Wayne has never said this to me before in our 27 years of marriage.

3) At 10:00 PM Wayne saw a huge lightning flash light up his window. Then the thunder immediately boomed directly over our house for a long 5 to 10 seconds without stopping. When it happened, he felt that it was significant, and not just a natural event. He also felt it was for my benefit, although he didn’t know why. He said it was only one very lengthy thundering, not a series building up to it, as in coming closer, and a series going away. There was only one flash and one thunder and it was all directly above our roof. It was extremely loud.

4) I was sound asleep at 10 o’ clock. I was dreaming and had just asked the Father in my dream, "What do YOU think about that?" (There was an emphasis on the Word You.) Immediately I heard a very HUGE, loud thunderous sound. It was like someone had spoken a sentence with words that were made from one long sonic boom, but with various degrees of emphasis within the boom! It was directly over my head and the whole atmosphere was filled with this sound and permeated my bedroom. I was very frightened. My heart was beating very fast as I awoke praying out loud, "In Jesus Name, in Jesus Name, in Jesus Name!!" I leaped out of bed and ran over to the window to see what had made that sound. I looked out the window and all was totally still. The rain finally came and I knew it must have been thunder.

5) I grew up among thunder storms; I knew this was very, very different. There was no thunder building up to it nor was there thunder leaving in the distance. I asked the Lord if this could possibly have been His voice answering me in a cloud directly above, for deep in my heart I knew I had heard the Heavenly Father. The Holy Spirit immediately brought back to memory that His voice sounds like thunder, and also that before bed I had been thinking about Annie’s vision where He was directly overhead. I was convinced the Father was there and He had answered my question.

6) I was totally undone by this experience. I kept saying to the Lord, "You are so awesome and I am so puny!" "You are so awesome and I am so puny!" I was overwhelmed by the awesomeness of God.

Job 37:1-5 NKJV

"At this also my heart trembles, and leaps from its place. Hear attentively the thunder of His voice, And the rumbling that comes from His mouth. He sends it forth under the whole heaven, His lightning to the ends of the earth. After it a voice roars; He thunders with His majestic voice, and He does not restrain them when His voice is heard. God thunders marvelously with His voice; He does great things which we cannot comprehend.

WORD TO PONDER: HE LISTENS, HE ANSWERS

This night I, your Father, have visited you in My glory cloud directly over your head. You have heard My thunderous voice. Mark it well, for when you ask of Me, I answer. I come when you know it not, and I descend upon you when you least expect it. Remember every little thought you think is recorded and I listen. My voice is mighty and it shakes the very core of your humanity, and yet even in that, I tenderly listen to every care and whim of your heart. Tell My people that your Father is awesome and fearful, and very tender to those whose hearts are turned toward Him.

============

VISION: I saw the whole sky filled with thunder clouds that were part white, gray and dark. The sky was covered in lightning strikes that were horizontal.

HEARD: Struck by power.

CONFIRMATION: The Lord’s Presence was very strong today at church. When I prayed for a friend, she went berserk, and another lady said to her, "I saw a lightning rod go from the top of your head to your toes." My friend confirmed that is exactly how it felt, like a streak of power going through her body.

WORD TO PONDER: STRUCK WITH POWER

My voice is like thunder and when you hear My roar, know My power is near. The spiritual skies above your head shall fill with thunder clouds and suddenly My power will strike here and there. I will fill the atmosphere with positive charges. As you have climbed in pursuit of Me, it has taken you higher and higher to places you can not see with your natural eye. But I see where you are. Your heart’s passion is like a beacon that draws the power of My lightning to strike into your very being. You shall be endued with My powerful Presence. From that day forth you shall have My rain cloud accompany you wherever you go. The same lightning that came from heaven will live in that cloud and that cloud will be upon your head as you come in and as you go out. As you reach out and touch others, I shall rain upon them and empower those who are parched and in need.

"The clouds poured down their rain; the thunder rolled and crackled in the sky. Your arrows of lightning flashed. Your thunder roared from the whirlwind; the lightning lit up the world! The earth trembled and shook." (Ps 77:17-18 NLT)

WORD TO PONDER: VISITATION FROM YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER

I have given you these glimpses of My thunder and power so that when I visit you, you shall understand. I AM coming in My thunder and power. My people have become acquainted with their Savior, Jesus Christ. They have become acquainted with their Helper, the Holy Spirit. They have yet to know their Heavenly Father. As I descend into their midst, their very beings shall rock and quake with the intensity of My tangible touch.

John 12:28-31 NKJV

Then a voice came from heaven, saying, "I have both glorified it and will glorify it again." Therefore the people who stood by and heard it said that it had thundered. Others said, "An angel has spoken to Him." Jesus answered and said, "This voice did not come because of Me, but for your sake.
