“Then the sixth angel blew [his] trumpet, and from the four horns of the golden altar which stands before God I heard a solitary voice, saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, ‘Liberate the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates’.” Revelation 9:13&14 ->me: Today’s write-up might seem a little off but will give you insight into one of the ways the Lord speaks to me. When I was reading this passage yesterday and today the thing that caught me was John saying “a solitary voice”…that may seem innocuous but it made me pause wondering why John would say ‘solitary’ or ‘one voice coming from one person’. Then today in Sunday Morning Worship at Canyon Hills we were singing several songs and one of them was about the ‘amazing name of Jesus’. Right then I realized that I don’t put a face with the name Jesus…or God the father…or the Holy Spirit; I don’t even think about it. After this was Pastor Steve’s message on Grace (Ephesians 2:8-9) -> where through faith we receive grace. Faith in the Son of God being a heart response through repentance. Ok – so how does all of this come together? Well through all of these moments, together they were an awesome message from God and His provision through Grace to not worry about what He ‘looks’ like but Who He is and what He is about. His solitary voice is all that matters. It is not important what He looks like, it is important Who He is in character and spirit; how He operates. Weird as it may seem, this is how God talks to me – He takes what might seem like an inconsequential piece from a passage in His word, pokes me through His Holy Spirit, then follows that up with other things in my day to form a piece of His Theology for me. How cool is that???…and while I have been in His word, this happens ALL the time.
