Epic: Lightning [pt 2]

Revelation 4:5
"From the throne came flashes of lightning, and rumblings and peals of thunder..."

1. the occurrence of a natural electrical discharge of very short duration and high voltage between a cloud and the ground or within a cloud, accompanied by a bright flash, and typically also thunder.

2. brilliantelectric discharge in the atmosphere, occurring within a thundercloud, between clouds, or between a cloud and the ground.

Darkness. Night. Clouds. No stars.
Wind moves as a tumble weed, across earths' expanse. 

In the still of night I sat on my porch watching as, seemingly miraculous, display of God's power performed beyond an hour.  Everything still and quite, not even the sound of thunder dared more than whisper.

Uncontrollable. Storm. Electricity. Indescribable.
Light explodes in veins of power, making the sky like black marble.

From the energy a light, emitted across the dark blanket, illuminating forms unseen for but a second. Just as quickly as radiance pierced through the heavens, it becomes absorbed into the unknown. 

Stunning. Bolt. Affects. Powerful. 
So distant and untouchable it seems, the path directed elsewhere, eagerly danger is welcomed.

Cloud to cloud the lightning is bat as eruption follows the word of thunder. Until the flare chooses to remain, turning to earth and kindles. 

Glory. Lightning. Alive. Fire burning.
Fall down on us, we pray, do not keep your power locked in the game of realms above. Release to catch flame on earth, that Your heart may set it in ours. 

That my voice be the thunder calling upon heaven to render lightning, that a 
brilliant electric spark would come. Brining with it life changing jolt - fire to extend through rain.

(No video, just sound)

Then I looked, and I heard around the throne and the living creatures and the elders the voice of many angels, numbering myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands, saying with a loud voice, “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!” And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them, saying, “To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!”

Love Always
