“Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split,”
This was the sound of victory! Jesus defeated sin at the cross and set captivity into freedom! This means that all of creation, by simply mixing faith with Jesus Christ and His finished work on the cross, can be reconciled to God.
“Now after the Sabbath, as the first day of the week began to dawn, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb. And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat on it.”
This is the sound of Freedom and Hope being restored. The earth quaked, the stone was rolled away, and life was new again! The Resurrected Jesus Christ was alive and all Hope and Faith was justified!
“And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.”
This is the sound of God's people receiving power when the Holy Spirit came upon them! This was the explosive power released from Heaven to equip the Church to be His witness on the earth.
Nothing's changed - there is a sound from Heaven available right now! Can you hear it ? Are you listening? The Lord said “ask and it will be given to you”. What are you waiting for?
Ask, the Lord is longing to give you ears to hear.
This is the Good News! For all who ask, He will give, and the results will be the same; You will gain victory over sin and death, you will receive new life and the power to equip you for every good work!
Blessings!! Sunday is coming!!
