Seven Thunders Will Sound From Heaven


A few days ago, I asked the Spirit of the Lord who and what were the seven thunders that spoke but their words not written down and why were they not written down. Here is what He showed me.

A day is coming to this entire world that has never been seen and never been heard. Just as the voice of the Almighty THUNDERED from mount Sinai to the children of Israel, so shall His mighty voice thunder from heaven to all flesh!

In Exodus 20 and recounted in Deuteronomy 5, God spoke from Mount Sinai His 10 Commandments. They were all so frightened, so terrified of the voice of the Lord their God they pleaded with Moses not to hear His voice again.

18 Now all the people witnessed the thunderings, the lightning flashes, the sound of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking; and when the people saw it, they trembled and stood afar off.

19 Then they said to Moses, “You speak with us, and we will hear; but let not God speak with us, lest we die.”

20 And Moses said to the people, “Do not fear; for God has come to test you, and that His fear may be before you, so that you may not sin.”

21 So the people stood afar off, but Moses drew near the thick darkness where God was. — Exodus 20:18-21 (NKJV)
23 “So it was, when you heard the voice from the midst of the darkness, while the mountain was burning with fire, that you came near to me, all the heads of your tribes and your elders.

24 And you said: ‘Surely the Lord our God has shown us His glory and His greatness, and we have heard His voice from the midst of the fire. We have seen this day that God speaks with man; yet he still lives.

25 Now therefore, why should we die? For this great fire will consume us; if we hear the voice of the Lord our God anymore, then we shall die.

26 For who is there of all flesh who has heard the voice of the living God speaking from the midst of the fire, as we have, and lived?

27 You go near and hear all that the Lord our God may say, and tell us all that the Lord our God says to you, and we will hear and do it.’ – Deuteronomy 5:23-27 (NKJV)

They heard the voice of the Almighty and lived but were convinced they could not survive a second encounter. As Moses recounted this experience with all the people, He told them what God said:

28 “Then the Lord heard the voice of your words when you spoke to me, and the Lord said to me: ‘I have heard the voice of the words of this people which they have spoken to you. They are right in all that they have spoken.

29 Oh, that they had such a heart in them that they would fear Me and always keep all My commandments, that it might be well with them and with their children forever! – Deuteronomy 5:28-29

When God said, “They are RIGHT in all that they have spoken,” He was not saying they were “righteous” but was stating the simple fact that they spoke what was truly in their heart. They spoke “truly”. Even so, their hearts were not right before the Lord God because what they heard was not mixed with faith.

For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard it. – Hebrews 4:2

After reading this verse in Hebrews, you may wonder how was the gospel preached to those of old. Understand that the voice of the Lord that spoke through Jesus while He was on the earth is the SAME voice that the children of Israel heard on that mountain. The voice of the Lord has a unique characteristic that human voices do not have “outside the anointing of the Spirit of God”. God’s voice PIERCES down to the very soul and heart of mankind.

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. – Hebrews 4:12

What the children of Israel experienced at the foot of Mount Sinai when God spoke in a “thunderous” voice, is what we experience when the motives of our heart is exposed and we see the very nature of our sin…selfishness. When we saw our sin, we knew we were without excuse and were condemned to die. We knew that there was no place we could hide and that His judgment towards us was true and just. If Jesus had not been there and already died for our sins and extended to us His mercy and forgiveness, we too would have reacted in the same way as those of old did and just as God’s word did THEM no good, not being mixed with faith.

It was the SAME VOICE that spoke to those of old as now speaks to us today. Without that voice, our hearts would not be circumcised and we would not have been able to enter into that New Covenant promised by Jeremiah and fulfilled by Jesus. Because the Spirit of the Lord drew us to Jesus and, through the faith He provided, gave us a new heart, in fulfillment of God’s promises.

Now consider this…a time is coming when that same voice of the Almighty that spoke to the children of Israel at Mount Sinai and now speaks to those who hear today, will be speaking once again but not just to those who have come to Him in faith, but now His voice will THUNDER from heaven for ALL MANKIND to hear. Every living soul will HEAR HIS VOICE and, just as what happened to the children of Israel at Mt. Sinai, they will all feel as if they will die.

SUDDENLY, they will all see their sin. They will all see they’ve lived their lives through SELFISHNESS. They will all see they are WORTHY OF ALL CONDEMNATION and realize then that ONLY through Jesus can mankind be saved, but because their hearts are NOT REPENTANT nor were they SEEKING THE TRUTH, the Almighty’s voice will not benefit them.

He Who Has Ears to Hear:
The seven thunders who uttered their voices that John was not allowed to write down their words ARE the seven Spirits of God. All of them are in Jesus Christ shown by John as seven horns and seven eyes.

And I looked, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as though it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth. (Revelation 5:6)

Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon Him,
The Spirit of wisdom and understanding
Spirit of counsel and might
The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD. (Isaiah 11:2, NKJV)

These seven spirits of God are:
1– Spirit of the Lord
2– Spirit of Wisdom
3– Spirit of Understanding
4– Spirit of Counsel
5– Spirit of Might
6– Spirit of Knowledge
7– Spirit of the Fear of the Lord

Here are the characteristics of the voice of the Lord as thunder:

The adversaries of the LORD shall be broken in pieces; from heaven He will thunder against them. The LORD will judge the ends of the earth. “He will give strength to His king, and exalt the horn of His anointed.” — 1 Samuel 2:10 (NKJV)

Thunder breaks His adversaries in pieces.
Thunder judges.
Thunder gives strength to kings.
Thunder exalts the “horn” of the Christ.

Thunder brings confusion on the enemy of His people.

Now as Samuel was offering up the burnt offering, the Philistines drew near to battle against Israel. But the LORD thundered with a loud thunder upon the Philistines that day, and so confused them that they were overcome before Israel. — 1 Samuel 7:10 (NKJV)

Thunder brings the “fear of the Lord”, thus opening up the eyes of the people to their sin in God’s perspective.

17 “Is today not the wheat harvest? I will call to the LORD, and He will send thunder and rain, that you may perceive and see that your wickedness is great, which you have done in the sight of the LORD, in asking a king for yourselves.”

18 So Samuel called to the LORD, and the LORD sent thunder and rain that day; and all the people greatly feared the LORD and Samuel. — 1 Samuel 12:17-18 (NKJV)

Thunder is the voice of God.

4 After it a voice roars; He thunders with His majestic voice, and He does not restrain them when His voice is heard.
5 God thunders marvelously with His voice; He does great things which we cannot comprehend. — Job 37:4-5 (NKJV)

By His voice, which is like Thunder, His arrows scatter the foe, opens the channels of the sea so the foundations are uncovered.

13 The LORD thundered from heaven, and the Most High uttered His voice,
Hailstones and coals of fire.
14 He sent out His arrows and scattered the foe, lightnings in abundance, and He vanquished them.
15 Then the channels of the sea were seen, the foundations of the world were uncovered at Your rebuke, O LORD, at the blast of the breath of Your nostrils. — Psalms 18:13-15 (NKJV)

In Him is the secret place of thunder. You called in trouble, and I delivered you; I answered you in the secret place of thunder; I tested you at the waters of Meribah. Selah — Psalms 81:7 (NKJV)

James and John were given the name “Sons of Thunder”
— Mark 3:17 (NKJV)

James the son of Zebedee and John the brother of James, to whom He gave the name Boanerges, that is, “Sons of Thunder”;

And just as the “Sons of Thunder” were given that name, so are all those who walk as His true disciples. For the voice of the Almighty is that voice in whom those, who are led by the Spirit of God, follow. When His voice is heard from Heaven, all the people on earth will tremble with great fear. Those who belong to God will tremble but will also worship Him and be safe because they will be IN that secret place of the Voice of the Lord their God. Those who do not know Him will tremble with great fear and terror for they know their time of judgment is at hand.

When the seven thunders speak, it will be the Voice of the Lord our God and all men will hear it as His voice pierces their souls and shows them the depths of their sin. And those who do not walk uprightly, shall also hear. For all seven thunders will speak as One!

The REASON John was not allowed to write down what the seven thunders spoke is because these words are not to be “read” as from a book or letter but are intended by the Lord to be HEARD. For what words, that can be written down for mankind to read, will have as much power to pierce the souls and spirits of man? Mankind has been taking God’s written record of His Word and misinterpreting it for ages and if those words had been written down, these too would have been done in similar fashion. NO, God has reserved the sounding of those words for the day of the Lord as He will speak once more from heaven for all flesh to hear.

Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. — Revelation 19:15 (NKJV)

And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh. — Revelation 19:21 (NKJV)

Jerry your words above about removing grave clothes are so accurate and so needed in the body of Christ and for individuals. We all have a tendency to rush out to serve the Lord without first getting cleaned up. And leadership also rush the newly saved out into the war. Not much different to an army with only kids in it’s ranks. I have used your comments above to add to a blog post I wrote on having no root in ourselves. My original post did not deal with this issue of grave clothes hindering, so I have added your comments and linked back to here.
Thanks and may God raise up more mature men and women of God who know what it is to wear His robes of righteousness and not the old robes of shame!

You all are in agreement here – you Jerry, Sister Bette and now James with another powerful word posted at 2:02 today on the Church reaching the “tipping point”. PTL! James, I share your sense on intensity on the one hand but coupled with an awesome unprecedented peace.

There is something I feel I need to point out and it may “seem” unrelated to this message but I think it does There were as many as 500 people at one time that saw Jesus in His resurrected form. 500! And YET, only 120 were in that upper room to receive the power of God from heaven. That is a mere 24%! Less than a quarter of those that SAW Jesus after He resurrected wanted more of Him! Sadly, I am sure that the number of people who truly hunger and thirst for more of the Spirit of the Lord will probably come close to that same percentage. Just like when all those who followed Jesus, left Him because His sayings were too difficult, the price too high and only the 12 remained, what is coming will be too high a price for many as they too will turn away from the Lord. There will be a great falling away before Jesus returns and just like the parable of the sower and the seed, some seed fell on stony ground and amongst thorns. Persecution and the cares of this world will serve to “weed out” those who are not fully “grounded” in reltionship with Him. In the midst of the trouble that is coming, in the midst of persecution and in the midst of judgment to this nation, God will pour out of His Spirit which we understand as the early and latter rain together which comes to 7 times the power and anointing that was poured out the first time at Pentecost. With some many signs and wonders flowing from His anointed ones, many will try to make this work for themselves, but because these will be viewed by God as thieves, seeking to find some other way… Read more »

Jerry ,
The question here is .How far are the saints willing to go ,how close do they want to be….???????Many are sadly in a comfort zone……yet we know there is so much going on in the world,but yet we need to focus more on Him and our spiritual house or nothing else is going to matter.GB

You are right Bette. It is so sad that many have chosen to live in their comfort zone and not move “when the cloud moves”. What we saw in the book of Exodus, the nation moving when the pillar of fire/cloud moves and staying when the pillar of fire/cloud stays is an OT version of being guided by the Holy Spirit. We don’t have such “visuals” today but must rely upon the “invisible”. All those born again have that “ability” to see God’s kingdom but because they have not “exercised” that spiritual muscle, it has atrophied. Only by reason of use of walking according to the Spirit can we grow and become sons and daughters of God. Many believe they are sons and daughters by virtue of their born again status. But this is not true nor is it taught in many churches. Read the bible; pray; go to church/fellowship; pay tithes are what is being taught how to “maintain” one’s Christianity but they fail to remove the “grave clothes” of the new born believers. So, like Lazarus, they emerged from death to life but still completely bound by those things that bound them in death. Jesus did not leave the responsibility to remove those grave clothes to the leaders but to the “body”, especially to those who were “nearest” them. The church, as a whole, has not fulfilled this task and as such, there are many Christians trying to walk in their faith but greatly hindered from finding that freedom and rest promised in God’s Word. It is this subtle sense of helplessness and hopelessness that is pervasive in the Body of Christ. I see it all the time. It is not so much they seek to remain in their “comfort zone” but they cannot see any way out… Read more »

Exellent teaching with this Word. Thank you for sharing.

November 4, 2015 2:46 PM

Thank you for this meaty teaching Jerry. I’ve read through this article several times now making notations in my bible as I absorb it. I always wondered about the Sons of Thunder having a deeper meaning as well as the references to thunder in general. I don’t know how anyone can not have a deeper reverence and fear of the Lord after reading this! PTL!

Thank you for your kind words, faith. I will tell you, I truly had nothing to do with this. The Holy Spirit gave all of it to me, including the guidance to find those verses and to understand them and “make them plain” for all. During the time I was putting this together for my own study, I felt like a kid again, very giddy and filled with a kind of “delight” as when a child opens their gifts.

When I first received this revelation, I was very concerned and cautious about whether I should tell anyone about it. I told those in my household but that was all. I didn’t know how to “put it all together” and left that for another day until the Holy Spirit would prompt me to write what you read here. Believe me, it was all Him and none of me. The “plate” had nothing to do with the meal except to serve what the Master prepared for us all.

When I “saw” how the voice of the Lord (the seven thunders) was going to pierce the hearts of the unbeliever, a shudder ripped through me. To those outside of the fellowship of the Lord, this will be the most terrifying experience of their lives. One they will not forget. Then the thought occurred to me, will this happen just before the wicked are slain by the sword of the Lord’s mouth or is THIS part of His slaying them? Of this, He has not shown me. Suffice it to understand the dreadful power of His voice as the 7 Thunders speak. It will be unlike anything this world will ever experience. Of this, I am certain. After all, how terrible and dreadful to fall into the hands of the Living God.

Great write up Jerry. Recently I had a dream to awaken to the ancient scrolls. John was told to eat the little scroll and prophecy to many peoples, nations, and tongues. Who is the John? We are the John. John himself didn’t prophesy to many peoples, nations, and tongues. Those who qualify will be given specific instructions for the end times as well as the seven spirits of God. We too shall eat the scroll and prophesy to many peoples, nations, and tongues. Great authority will be given to the man child. It’s also about the man child (Sons of God) and the judging of the fallen angels in Revelation 12. Neville Johnson saw the man child playing a role in casting the devil and his angels from the second heaven. God bless!

All, I learned recently from a Derek Prince teaching that a skilled Roman soldier could kneel behind their shield and it would protect them completely. However, if the soldier was overweight, they would not be protected completely. Well, as I was praying this morning, I was trying to understand how this fits in a spiritual context. I believe the Lord showed me that an overweight solder is likened to a believer with pride (puffed up, enlarged view of one self). Something else I just learned, is that a soldier could run towards the enemy with full force in an attempt to knock his foe over with the shield. He would then kneel behind the shield and fight from behind it.
