voice [qowl] of the LORD [Yahovah] is
powerful [koach]; the voice [qowl] of the LORD [Yahovah] is
full of majesty [hadar]. KJV-Interlinear
4 The voice
of the Lord is powerful, The voice of the Lord is majestic. NASB
Recall that in our Revelation study, there is a reference to the seven thunders, Rev. 10:4, referring to a series of judgments that have been sealed up until the time when they are unleashed on humanity. And here we have seven references to the voice of God, which in turn have been described symbolically as thunder that can gain your attention as well as destroy all with which it comes into contact.
And even though those future seven thunders and their purpose have been sealed up, preventing us from knowing exactly what judgments they will be, we can easily conclude that since they come from God, and are of God, they will be the most powerful judgments ever unleashed onto planet earth.
In their doubling up in this verse, eludes to an advancing line of thunders, one right after another, the last being more close than the former, advancing closer and closer as a charging army advances along a wide front.
The thunder is powerful, and when God is behind the thunder, it is more than just sound or noise, it possesses inherent power of its own.
Power means might or strength. The kind of power that can shatter trees or buildings, with the authority of the blast of its sound.
Majesty, refers to its awesomeness and overpowering volume and vastness. It has nothing to compare with, nothing that is like it. It is unique as God is unique. Its power is without limit, without containment, and against which there is no defense.
The flash of lightning and resulting thunder is virtually instant and can occur at any given moment without advanced warning. By the time you hear it, it is too late.
