Job 37:4



4 After ['achar] it a voice [qowl] roareth [sha'ag]: he thundereth [ra`am] with the voice [qowl] of his excellency [ga'own]; and he will not stay [`aqab] them when his voice [qowl] is heard [shama`]. KJV-Interlinear



4 'After it, a voice roars; He thunders with His majestic voice; And He does not restrain the lightnings when His voice is heard. NASB



Before the storm rises, the lightning is seen in the distance. Perhaps we see it out of the periphery of our sight. Perhaps we see the reflection in some fashion. Perhaps we see the clouds begin to form on the horizon and then see the lightning within them.


There is a pause, a space, and time gap elapses and then we hear the roar of the thunder. The thunder can be faint and distant, but grows louder and louder as the storm approaches.


Within the storm is rain, hail, wind and such. These are not seen nor felt at the beginning. When the storm is in its early stages, you cannot know its makeup, or its intensity.


But the lightning flashes, and the thunder roars. And, when the thunder roars, that does not mean that it is all over.


The lightning continues, and the thunder continues and the storm continues and continues and continues until the energy of the storm is exhausted or it passes by you and continues on its way to its next destination or culmination.


Before, during and after, the storm has your attention. The thunderclaps spell power and awe. The lightning spells drama and provides a focus for your attention. The rain and wind drive you to seek shelter.


Before the storm, you are no match. With each lightning flash, with each thunderclap, you cannot seek out or backtrack to its source. The light and sounds are all around. You cannot know their origin or their conclusion, or even the intensity or duration of the storm.


Even after the storm, you may not know the ultimate repercussion of its action. Damage assessment or even a flood may not be known or rise up until days after. And then a storm of another kind may be at hand.


And such is life, in this life. Gods presence is constantly available and known, even through the endless stream of storms that we all face during our life here in this world.


But not all of humanity will look at the storms of life and see the same things. Some folks see the realities of life. They see what is really there. Some folks look at the storms of life and do not see their true purpose. Some folks do not see the storms, as such, at all. Yet other folks will see only what they wish to see. So, even though the objective, the indifferent, and the delusional views of life are always present, that does no negate the presence of God or truth in our lives.


We can ignore or interpret life in anyway we please, but truth can never be changed regardless of mans opinion.

End Of Lesson

Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
