And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. Acts 2:2
From the crash of pitchers in the hands of Gideon’s army (Judges 7:20-21), to the charismatic outpour at Pentecost, indeed, the Lord works, moves and operates through sound.
We see it in the crippled feet of four leprous men putting an entire army to flight (2 Kings 7:3-7), and the high praises of God in the mouth of the saint as an instrument of judgment (Ps. 149:6-9). It is a truth the Lord takes and uses sound to confuse the adversary, perplex the attacker and scatter the enemy.
Yet volume is not necessarily the factor that determines the quality and power of the sound. As distinctly as the Lord is able to work through the thunderous shabach that brought down the walls of Jericho (Josh. 6:20), He also came and visited the prophet Elijah in a still small voice (1 Kings 19:12). We are in pursuit of the sound that the Sovereign Lord dwells within. We seek His face and long to rest in His presence.
This recording was a kairos moment in time where the sound of the Lord was present in Beth Rapha to heal, to comfort, to challenge, to deliver, to edify, to transform. We are assured that as you lend your ear and your heart to this consecrated, dedicated sound, you will experience the same.
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. Revelation 2:29
