Noise comes from the Hebrew word qowl which means "to call aloud, a voice, a proclamation, a sound and a thunder." This reminded me of Psalm 18:6-14 which speaks of the thunder of God's voice. These are scriptures tied to strategies God has given me to help connect the body of Christ, mobilize the army of the Lord, and establish 24/7 prayer, praise and worship in a community. It positions the Church in a city or region to better hear the voice of the Lord.
No sooner had I begun to meditate upon this in my back yard when I heard thunder. Others who attended the seminar also saw and heard the thunder, hail and lightning. Here's a report from King 5 news that describes how the power was knocked out in many communities and hail as large as marbles fell.
What do the signs point to? God wants His body connected and mobilized like an army spoken of in Joel 2, Ezekiel 37 and 1 Corinthians 12. He wants 24/7 prayer, praise and worship established in every city (Acts 15:16-17 and Amos 9:11). He wants His voice heard and He desires to deliver His people (Daniel 7:9-22).
CONECT and Operation Rolling Thunder are the two strategies I've used for years to help churches do this. Now we'll be presenting an even more comprehensive strategy on August 22nd at the 1st Kingdom Congress in Washington State.
In my distress I called upon the Lord,And cried out to my God;He heard my voice from His temple,And my cry came before Him, even to His ears. Then the earth shook and trembled;The foundations of the hills also quaked and were shaken,Because He was angry. Smoke went up from His nostrils,And devouring fire from His mouth;Coals were kindled by it. He bowed the heavens also, and came downWith darkness under His feet. And He rode upon a cherub, and flew;He flew upon the wings of the wind. He made darkness His secret place;His canopy around Him was dark watersAnd thick clouds of the skies. From the brightness before Him,His thick clouds passed with hailstones and coals of fire. The Lord thundered from heaven,And the Most High uttered His voice,Hailstones and coals of fire. He sent out His arrows and scattered the foe,Lightnings in abundance, and He vanquished them. NKJV
