For some months now, people have been reporting that they hear strange rumbles in the sky. Variously called sky quakes, sky rumbles, or sounds of the apocalypse, they have a uniformity of sound that most people describe. The noises sound like booms, or rumbles. I still can't get the fact of these weird rumbles and sky booms out of my mind. I think they are fascinating. Scientifically, their cause has been linked to minor earthquakes, construction noise, or military exercises (sonic booms) among other plausible causes. No doubt some of the places where people hear the noises are due to those reasons. But in other places, the officials test for just those things and come up empty, and shake their heads. They have not yet attributed some of these sounds to something earthly and verifiable.
I had explored the idea that they could be leak-through sounds of spiritual warfare, as we know is happening due to the verses in 2 Kings 6:17. But as I was reading Ezekiel yesterday, I was hit with the following verse:
"Then the Spirit lifted me up, and I heard behind me a loud rumbling sound—May the glory of the Lord be praised in his dwelling place!— the sound of the wings of the living creatures brushing against each other and the sound of the wheels beside them, a loud rumbling sound." (Ezekiel 3:12-13)
Just something that makes me go HMMMMM.
I love the Word and following its trails through each book and finding parallel verses, and thus weaving a beautiful tapestry together of understanding of Him. It's a tapestry that will never be complete, because His words will never pass away (Matthew 24:35), but that means there will be an eternity to plumb its depths.
