Songs of Thunderbolt: Hidden Thunder Reveals Compassion Amidst Justice

This article was made possible by my faithful Patrons and is dedicated to those who support my writings.

Now that you have had time to absorb some of the physical changes  from Convulsing Cosmic Blast of Shock and Awe to Hit Earth and Stratospheric Mystery Layer Fires creating Dystopian Hellscape cataclysms that works hand-in-hand with what is happening in the spiritual realm.  There are still some concepts left to be revealed to us through the Seven Thunders. We will see creation melting before our eyes before the Dispenser of Strict Justice.  It never ceases to amaze me that where God is dispenses His justice, He always embeds verses of hope.

Psalm 68

                         Photographer Mitch Dobrowner

This song is a plea for the advent of the future redemption.

Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him.

May God manifest His power, to Him Who causes victory. For those who do numbers in the bible, the value is 70, indicating He is Supreme over all the nations. 

And it came to pass that when the Ark journeyed forward that Moses said:  Arise, God, and let Your foes be scattered and let those who hate You flee before you.  Numbers 10:35

In this Psalm David is speaking to God or in the third person as the Dispenser of Strict Justice.

The earth and heavens quaked in fear at Mt. Sinai of the Dispenser of Strict Justice.  For He created the world on the condition that the universe will endure only if the world accepts the Word made Flesh,  If He is rejected the universe will return to nothingness. 

David is saying let the massed assault formation be broken and their staunch fighters dispersed which is a prayer we might be saying in the near future. 

As smoke is driven away, so drive them away: as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God.

Thick billowing smoke seemingly a solid mass will soon dissipate into a wisp and the wind will drive the smoke away. Smoke and vapor always rise symbolizing haughty men stirred by pride with aspirations to climb even higher on the ladder of power and success.  Like dark ominous smoke rising heavenward the wicked momentarily seem to represent real danger.  Yet smoke's nature dictates that it must fade away, a process hastened by the wind.  Similarly, it cannot long endure and will disintegrate.  At God's hand all evil doers must perish because their nature is ephemeral and lacks enduring reality.

As wax melts before the fire…This simile does not say wax consumed, only that the wax melted.  As wax cannot abide the presence of fire, so the lawless man cannot stand in the presence of God.

But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar, the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and its works will be laid bare.  2 Peter 3:10

as you anticipate and hasten the coming of the day of God, when the heavens will be destroyed by fire and the elements will melt in the heat.  2 Peter 3:12

Nations rage, kingdoms crumble; the earth melts when He lifts His voice.  Psalm 46:6

There are God's foes that pose an actual physical threat and must be completely destroyed and like the smoke they vanish in the wind . And then, there are God's enemies who contemplate evil in their heart. If they change their attitude they could be saved, but time is short. 

Faith Lesson: When the Dispenser of Strict Justice arrives will you melt like wax or be covered by the Blood of the Lamb?

Rejoicing in the Darkness

Image by Celeste

But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice.

The wicked feel cramped and uneasy in the presence of God. Their habitat is that of the profane and promiscuous abandon. 

The faithful have three levels of joy no matter the circumstance:

  • Joy is the sensation of inner growth unfolding as a rose petals open.
  • Breathe easy is the emotion of inner liberation from restraining bonds such as depression or confinement. 
  • Blossom forth is the sensation of blossoming forth in the spirit, again, likened to a flower opening. 

Faith Lesson:  I want to thrive and so during my distressing moments I will begin to sing praises to Jesus with exceeding joy.

Riding upon the Heavens

Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name Jehovah, and rejoice before him.

When you remove the distractions which distort clear perception of His Name and deeds then you are inspired to sing. 

Sing of it in songs praising His greatness and in melodies of thought and emotion; sing praises to the hearts of man that His Name establishes right and that He is a loving Father of mankind Who trains His children so that they may fulfill their destiny.  

God guides though waste and barrenness which is an allegory for the state of affairs where man cannot attain contentment. 

Through the views you hold, and with the aid of the songs that you sing His praises soar up to Him Who guides and shapes His world aright and with His power safely leads His world through times that are hopelessly barren.

By extolling Him it will elevate you, raise you up, as if climbing Jacob’s Ladder.   You are building up a road, a super highway, if you will, upon which your Spirit can rise towards God. 

The short-lived derived from material pleasures leaves a void in the heart but the spiritual gladness causes you to rejoice perpetually.

Faith Lesson: As I face the barrenness of the Tribulation, I am going to purpose to praise and remember that Jesus will safely lead me as He reshapes this corrupt world.

The Rider of Antiquity

To He Whom rides…  denotes the mastery of the horseman over his steed.  The metaphor is used to describe firm guidance which God directs the world and all Creation. 

The Rider upon the loftiest of primeval heavens in the Aravot.  The Aravot is the highest heaven where Go sits upon His Throne.  This heaven controls the motions and orbits of all the lower spheres.  Ancient Legends say that this is the seventh heaven where God stores justice and charity, the treasuries of life, peace and blessing.  The highest heavenly sphere which holds the souls which have not yet come to life, the departed souls of faith, and the dew for the resurrection of the dead. 

It was upon the highest heavens, which are from ancient times; Behold, He speaks forth with His voice, a mighty voice.

Unlike this temporary world and its mortal inhabitants, the highest heavens and the angels who dwell there have existed since antiquity and will continue to exist forever.  Previous kingdoms of earth attributed their sovereignty and success to the celestial signs and heavenly bodies which they thought controlled man's fate and fortune. God alone rules the heavens, just as the rider determines the path of his horse. 

In the near future God will proclaim His complete sovereignty over all of the earth.  He will sweep away the lesser celestial forces which have previously been His agents and intermediaries. 

Sing praises unto Him Who guides the world in the heavens of heavens of antiquity.  He still guides the worlds as He did in the days of old.  Behold, His invincible voice.  Heed God's voice, accept His revelation, and dedicate yourself to broadcasting its message.  God will endow with invincible power those words of man that proclaim His glory! 

Yah…  This is the Name of God in Awesomeness.  Serve God in awe and rejoice with trembling.  Psalm 2:1  This is the Name by which God fashioned the worlds, the Next World, and even Gehinnom visualized in the Hebrew characters. 

Faith Lesson:  Have you ever thought that when we plant a seed for the Lord that is also planted in heaven being the mirror reflection, where it bears fruit nourishing universe with spiritual enrichment?  Today, I will sow seeds of faith in the fertile soil of my life and let Him Who is in the Heavens water and grow them.

Advocate for the Vulnerable

A father of the fatherless, and a judge [advocate] of the widows, is God in his holy habitation.

Although God is in the Aravot, the loftiest heavens, He remains intimately involved in the affairs of the weakest and least prominent of people.  He is a Father to the orphan who desperately needs a parent.  The widow resembles a mute, unable to plead on her own behalf.

Proclaim that God is exalted in His unattainable greatness and none can approach His majesty, yet still our closest friend.  He is a Father and Defender of the most forsaken creatures, for when one loses his father is as if he is maimed, loosing a hand that was there to guide and direct him.  God is a Father and Defender to the widow which is related to being ‘dumb’.  For when a woman loses her husband in death she is deprived of the defender who is interested in her behalf.  God remains her defender. 

Faith Lesson:  Knowing that Jesus has a heart for vulnerable populations like the orphan and the widow what am I doing to emulate Him?  Take a step towards His will.

Only the Lonely

God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry land. an God literally gathers and settles the lonely into a family [house]. 

A house does not mean architectural structure but a family social unit.  The Divine Matchmaker is a supernatural task.  Lonely individuals may be strangers and emotional opposite with conflicting personal priorities.  God alone can gather them into a family because at conception a heavenly voice decreed body and soul of future mates should develop into a harmonious whole.  It is as if two parts were united into a whole. 

Subtly, the Lord endorses the institution of marriage, for without His lead a person would live a solitary life.  One must think about rising above, a rocky hill [ of which I am well acquainted here in the Rocky Mountains], a rock [distinguish from the Rock], stressing barren, dry hardness of a rock, which absorbs no moisture, Ezekiel 24:8, and barrenness, Isaiah 58:11. Many will perceive bareness for although they received the fruit of the womb, that fruit has now turned against you.  

It may appear to us that the wicked are at rest, unharmed by the blows of life, standing upon a hill which seems to afford them security.  The truth is that they stand on sinking sand or a mass of barren rocks.  For them there is no joy, no blossoming, no rich soil of hope for the future. 

O God, when thou wentest forth before thy people, when thou didst march through the wilderness; Selah:

God has demonstrated that He has walked with us in the deserts and wildernesses of our lives.  The Lord did not hasten in these wildernesses but slowly, deliberately, strides to support and fortify us, Psalm 113.

Faith Lesson:  The Tribulation days ahead will bring loneliness.  I will find companionship in the family of Jesus and the institutions that God created rather than fleeting occupations such continuing to plunge into the depths of technology. 

Doves and Eagles

Though ye have lien among the pots, yet shall ye be as the wings of a dove covered with silver, and her feathers with yellow gold.

Not only the warlike eagle, but the peaceful dove is covered with silver and its pinions shimmer with gold and are sharp. The dove is portrayed not at rest, but in flight, and the bright sun shines upon its outstretched wings.  The allegory of the dove is used often for God’s people.  Even by dove-like meekness, even through its calling will attain fame and splendor. 

As soon as Jesus was baptized, He went up out of the water. Suddenly the heavens were opened, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and resting on Him.    Matthew 3:16

Behold, you are beautiful, my love; behold, you are beautiful; your eyes are doves.  Song of Songs 1:15

And I say, “Oh, that I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and be at rest;  Psalms 55:6

When the Almighty scattered kings in it, it was white as snow in Salmon. 

You will discover yourself shunning social status and lofty positions to serve Jesus.  Despite the soot and dirt which may cover you in the course of your duties you will surely emerge clean and white as a dove plated with spotless silver. 

Dove feathers are plumes or the outer feathers which are primarily ornamental.  These ornamental feathers are the one predators grasp upon when tearing for prey.  The doves pinions are the limbs of the wings which keeps her airborne-aloft from predators, and not primarily ornamental.

With brilliant gold…  means green, but the Hebraic spelling indicates a lack of greenness.  Legend says that the pure gold of Chavilah and Hush does not have a red or green tint, indicating a lesser purity, but is yellow.

Rebuke the company of spearmen, the multitude of the bulls, with the calves of the people, till every one submit himself with pieces of silver: scatter thou the people that delight in war.

Destroy… means to harshly rebuke but here it means destroy.  I find it interesting that verbiage of 'pieces of silver' is used thinking of Judas Iscariot and also that silver is the metal for atonement and redemption.

The beast of the reed…  Describes the greedy and overbearing nations which trample the peoples of the world like a wild boar crashes through flimsy reeds.  Many believe that this is symbolic of the Roman Empire although some believe it to be Islam.

Legends say that when Solomon sinned with his wives God began to transferring sovereignty of Israel to Rome.  To symbolize this, the Almighty sent Gabriel the angel to thrust a lone reed into the Mediterranean Sea.  Eventually, debris collected around this reed and formed the Italian Peninsula.  Rome does things with a reed pen by which she forges laws, literature, art, torture, and death of people and nations.  At their core they are ruthless, militaristic barbarians no better than the beast of the reeds. 

Faith Lesson:  I will remember the words of Jesus, 'Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves. Be ye therefore wise as serpents and harmless [innocent] as doves.'  May my conduct all my days be dove-like.

Soon, Very Soon:   Psalm 77

For the Conductor on Yedusun, by Assaf, a song.

Every Psalm that begins with this highlights an evil decree or oppressive edict impose by Satan upon the people of God.  Nevertheless Assaf’s unique talent was the ability to find something to sing about even in the bleakest gloom. 

I cried unto God with my voice, even unto God with my voice; and he gave ear unto me.

 I remembered God, and was troubled: I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed. Selah. 

My distress accomplishes its purpose which was to elevate me.  Even when my agony was at its height I never sought relief from my pain, I merely requested spiritual renewal and Divine guidance. 

My wound is based upon Psalm 9:3, when God smites the Egyptians with livestock disease. Here the Psalmist is referring to our heart, which was deeply wounded by the suffering of the darkness of night.

My hand seeks God, that His hand should rest upon me with prophetic visions Ezekiel 1:3, 3:22 that I might navigate through the gloom. 

My wound oozes [flows] through the night, and does not cease…  Just as blood pours from an open wound incessantly, so will we cry and moan through these judgments.  There is no bandage that can heal this nasty wound, we must endure. 

My soul refuses comfort…I will console myself that God will promise this distress someday and yet this is so intense that my soul refuses to be calmed.

Although my body suffers physical pain, it can find consolation by the fact that pain purges the body of inclinations towards sin.

In such confinement it compels me to activate my latent spiritual and moral energy which in happier days often remained dormant and neglected deep within mine heart.

Though my hand reached out to God to cleave unto Him I was unable to acquire the spiritual and moral energy which I needed to soar up to God.  Indeed, my strength failed perceptibly, and ebbed away into the night of suffering round about me.  Hence, I could not gather new spiritual courage, my should refused to be comforted.  It was not the suffering itself, but the fact that suffering had utterly crushed my spirit, that caused me despair.  The helping hand of God which I expected is likened to the “streaming away” of water. 

Thou holdest mine eyes waking: I am so troubled that I cannot speak. 

I remember God and I moan…I remember when God showered me with His good graces and how He championed my cause against my adversaries.

I speak…  I constantly tell others of the kindness I once enjoyed and I contrast it with my present woes and dismay.  Although the Book of Proverbs says, If there is worry in a man’s heart, let him speak it out, Proverbs 12:25.  I try this remedy but my pain is to intense it did not work. 

Faith Lesson:  As the darkness of the times encompasses me, when I am in agony I will only seek relief from my pain from Jesus with His spiritual renewal and Divine guidance. I will let Him imbue me with courage to face my days.  And I will faithfully bear testimony of what He has done in my life.

Watchful Eye

You grasped my eyelids…  The man who remains awake deep into the night is called a Watcher of the Night, Isaiah 21:8.  Watch is the time when watchmen awaken for the next shift in the night.  Eyelids are called watches, for they protect the eye.  The Psalmist laments that through the long night problems plagued me so that I could not sleep peacefully.  Agony kept my eyes open and on the alert, but I became dizzy and groggy from exhaustion. 

In addition to my agony Thou did hold fast to the guard of my eyes (lids) so that I stared out sleeplessly into the night, and I was as if I had been crushed [literally stunned by the blow of a hammer, Isaiah 41:7] I became as one paralyzed. 

I was alarmed and could not speak…  Worries kept me awake and during the day I am bewildered and so lost I cannot speak.  I see that the future holds greater woes for my persecuted people.  Although I am alarmed by the specter of doom, I dare not alert them, lest they be gripped by uncontrollable panic. 

Faith Lesson:  I will not get frustrated when I cannot sleep.  I am a watch man or woman.  Rather, I bathe the matters of this world in prayer.  Alarming as they may be I will allow Jesus to be my Rock and Fortress.

Ancient Days

I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times. 

I contemplate the countless acts of kindness You have performed for my ancestors in the past.  You have extracted Your people and turned their mourning to joy.  I calculate to attempt to see how long I have spent in suffering. 

The good old days of the past seem ages away as if in a totally different world.  How I wish those wonderful times would return. 

Has God issued His final decree which prohibits Him forever from lessening His wrath?  Have all the words of hope expressed by the prophets come to and End so that there is no hope for future generations?

I will remember the works of the Lord: surely I will remember thy wonders of old. 

 In this terrible predicament I can and will pray.

Then I said, “My profanation-this is the change in the right hand of the Most High.

Derived from lost one’s life, either in the physical or moral sense, to be beaten to death or to be desecrated to be profaned.  Here it means profaned.  My becoming profane-herein lies the explanation for what would seem like a change in the right hand of the Most High.  Actually neither God nor His loving-kindness have changed; it is only that I have changed for the worse for I have forfeited the sacred character of my life.  I have allowed myself to be stripped of the consecration and sanctification that should have been my eternal heritage.  It is for this reason alone that God’s mercy, which remains forever constant, no manifests itself to me in a manner that appears so utterly opposed to the ways in which He has formerly dealt with me.  Even as a father chastise a disobedient child out of the same love for him with which he rewarded his obedience only the day before, so too, this same unalterable right hand of the Most High that blessed me and caused me to prosper when I was faithful to my duty; now decrees suffering for me so that I might be chastised and thus mend my ways and regain what I have lost. 

I sense that God is trying to intimidate me in order to beat my rebellious heart into submission.  Therefore, He pursues me with terror.  The root being a corpse, implying, When I was discouraged, I declared I would not emerge alive from this interminable time.  

 I will meditate also of all Thy work, and talk of thy doings. 

From now on I will recall Your demonstrations of Thy rule in my past history solely for the purpose of keeping alive in my own mind as well as in the memories of others the perception and understanding of Thy sovereignty and Thy ways.  I shall no longer dwell upon the miracles which Thou has brought in the past merely so that I might brood upon the contrast between these Thy glorious acts on our behalf and the sad lot which is Thy decree that we must now suffer. 

Faith Lesson:  I must examine the ancient works of the Lord and thereby I will not fear.

Concealing Creation & Seven Thunders

Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as our God?

The glory of God is to conceal a matter refers, to the secrets of Creation.

When I remember Your wonders of old…I recall the dawn of Creation and meditate on that deep subject, without speaking of it.  And then after a time, I will recount these mysteries in order to console the downtrodden brethren.  I will recount Your miraculous works.

The secrets of Creation must remain concealed for the evil in men’s hearts are to seize them.  But the manifest wonders of nature should be discussed for these amazing phenomena proclaim the sovereignty of God and His mastery over all realms of existence.  But the glory of kings is to investigate a matter Proverbs 25:2, Therefore of these things I shall declare openly. 

I shall ponder the content and significance of the totality of Thy work, such as the significance and purpose of Creation.  I shall meditate upon the individual acts of God’s sovereignty by which He created the world and established His people and the fulfillment of its purpose. 

Thou art the God that doest wonders: thou hast declared thy strength among the people.  

This is the first thought that comes to mind to me when I contemplate the totality of Thy wondrous works is the movement towards a specific goal.  God’s ways, all the goals of His sovereignty center around holiness.  The universal and constant goal of His sovereignty is that which is morally good and physically and spiritual welfare of His world.  No manifestation of His strength or His power is ever an end unto itself, a sheer display of force for its own sake.  All His ways are for the absolute good.  Where is there such a ‘great’ power?  The greatness of God is expressed not so much in terms of His power to destroy as in terms of His creative might in which He preserves even such as stand in utter opposition to Him, so that by His guidance, He may transform them eventually into His own obedient instruments for His goals. 

Faith Lesson:  I will remember Your lovingkindness remember of the days of old and ponder Your wondrous mysteries, not going beyond the boundaries You established.  This week I will share one of Your wonders with someone who does not know of them.

Water World

Though pagans do not acknowledge God the depiction above in Thailand attribute oceans turbulence to their god Shiva.

The clouds poured out water: the skies sent out a sound: thine arrows also went abroad. 

Legends says that the parting of the Red (Reed) Sea was a global event.  At that moment, all the waters in the entire world parted, including, the water in springs, wells, pits, bowls, and barrels.  Even the celestial reservoir of water and the fountains of the deep earth parted. 

God wanted a very public display of a universal miracle to publicize His Omnipotence throughout the entire world and He wanted to disprove the arguments of those who attributed the miracle to natural phenomena.  This was achieved though the entire world waterways splitting.

Water was threatened to be deprived of its innate physical character both as a physical fluid element and a mighty physical force.

Do you not fear Me, says God, "Will you not tremble at My presence?  For it is I who have placed the sand as a boundary for the sea,by an eternal decree that it shall not pass over it; and though the waves toss themselves, yet they cannot prevail, though they roar they cannot pass over it.  Jeremiah 5:22

It was the thundering voice of God that separated the waters and formed dry land.  If He had not done our planet would have been a water world with no life except possibly in the oceans.  Our planet could as easily revert back to a water world or experience a solar micro nova cataclysm that boils off the ocean into space leaving our planet a barren and rocky planet like Mars.  The covenant that God made not to Flood the earth and that He keeps our planet in perfect balance is something for which we can all be grateful.

Faith Lesson:  I choose to be grateful for the many covenants God has made with His children and that He has the power to keep my world in perfect balance.

Rolling Thunder in the Heavens

The voice of thy thunder was in the heaven: the lightnings lightened the world: the earth trembled and shook. 

The pillar of fire and clouds preceded the parting of the Reed Sea, which was accompanied by violent, earth-shaking thunderstorms.  The clouds poured forth water, there was deafening noise in the heights, lightening flashed like shooting arrows, thunder roared continually, the world was lit by lightening far and wide, the earth quaked and was shaken to its very foundations.  Then God’s path was through the sea and His way, leading straight to His goal, was through the mighty waters.  Then after accomplishing His goal all nature reverted to its ordinary state, without showing the least trace of the agitation and upheaval that it had just experienced.

The circular orbit and electrical charges of the celestial bodies also control rain, thunder, and earthquakes.

The rumble of Your thunder rolled like a wheel.

Thunder is caused by an atmospheric turbulence which causes the clouds to roll and collide causing a tremendous crash.  

You caused this awesome sound to roll across the waters like a spinning wheel causing panic and confusion in the Egyptian camp at the time of the Exodus and so to again shortly.  Intimidation of the wicked is one purpose of the thunder to humble the sinner by exposing his own frailty and insignificance. 

People describe thunder as rolling because it sounds like some gigantic wheel or ball rolling through the heaven.

You caused this awesome sound to roll across the waters like a spinning wheel causing panic and confusion in the Egyptian camp and that of Your enemies.

The voice of thy thunder was in the heaven (galgal): the lightnings lightened the world: the earth trembled and shook.

According to Exodus 14:20 indicates that lightning bolts lit up the entire sky of the world not just Mt.Sinai.

Along with this lightning the earth trembles and the people trembled with terror and awe.

All the attendant phenomena that had a telling impact upon the physical world and involved in a temporary suspension of the basic Laws of Nature during the events of Mt. Sinai and at other specified times.  As a result the people accepted God. 

The voice of thy thunder was in the heaven (galgal): the lightnings lightened the world: the earth trembled and shook.

This verse is the only place galgal is ever translated as heaven in the Bible. Most English versions render it as whirlwind in keeping with the root meaning of galal (to roll), Your thunder rumbled like wheels. [in the singular, not many thunders-but only one].

This Psalm is a prophetic anticipation of the rolling thunder of God's Voice revealed in the Wheel (Galgal) of His Word.  The Books of the Bible are a flash of Divine Insight and send forth rolling thematic thunder throughout the Holy Word. This is the Voice of God resounding from the revelation of the Divine Unity of the Bible as a whole. God expanded the relatively subtle anticipation of Psalm 77:18 into an explicit revelation of the fully unified structure of the entire Bible in Ezekiel's vision of the Divine Glory, where He explicitly defined the whole system of wheels within wheels using the singular Galgal: As for the wheels, it was cried unto them in my hearing, O Wheel (Galgal)  Ezekiel 10:13 

It may be that like the wheel, the Seven Thunders had to be hidden for the generation that would come face-to-face with them as the cycle came upon the horizon, once again.

Faith Lesson: I will strive to listen to the voice of God whether that be His thundering commands or His still small voice.  I shall be like Ruth!  'whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God.'  Ruth 1:15

Hidden Thunder of Psalm 81

You called in distress and I have made your free; so I shall answer you even hidden in thunder; I shall test you at the waters of contention...

In distress you called out, and I released you.  I answered you with thunder when you hid.

Another interpretation is:  I have removed his shoulder from burden [now] let his hands stay away from the kettle.

You have called in distress and I shall have made you free [in Jesus]; so I shall answer you even hidden in thunder; I shall test your faith at the waters of contention.

Psalm 80 portrays a sad fate for the plant of God, a metaphor of His children, but Psalm 81 visualizes the splendor of which this fruit may be sure when we do not seek to evade the ennobling process of 'wine pressing'. We enjoin ourselves to be partaker's joining with Jesus, in this winepress of this season of humanity, for:

A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master.  Matthew 10:24

“I have trodden the winepress alone, and no one from the nations was with Me. I trampled them in My anger and trod them underfoot in My fury; their blood spattered My garments, and all My clothes were stained.
Isaiah 63:3

You groaned in your bondage, you called out, and your cries have reached the ear of God both from Egypt and from within the beast system.  You cried unto me in privacy, in the lonely recesses of your heart. I will respond to your plea publicly with a display of thunder of My might and My concern for you!

While our prayer may be meager just as the sound of the shofar (rams horn) which is narrow at one end and wide at the other.  When you but whisper unto Me making a small plea, I will amplify it into a thunderous prayer.

It is within God's power to grant us physical freedom and to rid our shoulders of burden, and He did so. 

The same God Who obviously was near to us as our Redeemer from distress, was near us also as an Educator. He was near us even at those times when it seemed as if He had withdrawn His countenance from us behind a thundercloud.  He trained us by denying  the fulfillment of our heart's desires.  God is telling us that He has freed us from slavery to train us to achieve spiritual and moral victory.  True we walk in the wilderness with trials and tribulations but our destiny has already been proclaimed.  Long ago God inaugurated the Era of our Liberation. 

Faith Lesson:  I will cry unto Jesus in privacy, in the lonely recesses of my heart. I know that You will respond to my pleas with Your thundering might and Your concern for me!  I know that the prayers that I whisper unto You will be amplified into a thunderous prayer.

Thunder Hastens, Psalm 104

The Electric Universe Theory at the command of the Voice of God makes sense taking not to embrace the New Age portions of this theory.

Bless the Lord, O my soul. O God, my Lord, You are magnificent.  You are cloaked in majesty and splendor, wrapped in light as a cloak.  You stretched out the heavens like a  curtain-He Who lays out the beams of His upper chambers in the waters; Who appoints clouds as His steed; Who travels on the wings of the wind.  He makes His winds His emissaries, the blazing fire His attendants.  He established the earth on its foundations, so that it should never falter.  With the deep You covered the earth as if with a garment.  The water stood over the mountains.  At your shout they fled.  They hurried away at the sound of Your thunder.  They ascended mountains, they descended valleys-to the very place You established for them.  You set a boundary which they must not over run, so that they never cover the earth. 

Learn of the majesty of God by watching this You Tube and why we are in such trouble as we have dumbed down the education process

at the voice of thy thunder they hasted

Psalm 104:9  You set a boundary they cannot overstep…. which is a lesson mankind is actively violating.

The Purpose

Embedded within the Songs of the Psalms we have discovered some of the mysteries of the Seven Thunders such as timelines, overarching messages, and what our response should be when we hear the voice of God in the thunder. 

For today I will ask you this:  Why were the mountains formed?  Are they merely something to climb?  Holy Scripture admonishes us:  Look up your redemption draweth nigh. So many biblical men and women looked up for they knew at some time in history God would metaphorically come down to earth riding in His chariot to dwell with mankind, as it should have been at the beginning.  Mountains afford us the opportunity to look up at their dizzying heights and awaiting with anticipation our Jesus. 

More insights from the Seven Thunders ahead as we look at what insights we can glean from the prophets on the Seven Thunders before concluding with Take Away's for our lives as we conclude with the Seven Thunders of Revelation.
