voice [qowl] of the LORD [Yahovah]
maketh the hinds ['ayalah] to calve [chuwl], and discovereth [chasaph]
the forests [ya`arah]: and in his temple [heykal] doth every one speak ['amar]
of his glory [kabowd]. KJV-Interlinear
9 The voice
of the Lord makes the deer to calve, And strips the forests bare, And in His
temple everything says, "Glory!" NASB
Here is the seventh voice of God. All seven are summed up at the end of this verse with the word, everything. We have seen the first voice from verse three, where Gods voice reaches everywhere and bounces off of everything. The second voice, refers to power. The third voice renders awe. The fourth voice destroys the glory of all things natural in this world, and makes all things move to His will. The fifth voice, divides paths and makes way for the word of God. The sixth voice shakes all things as though they were nothing. And the seventh voice, as we will see, brings confusion and consternation while at the same time brings order and safety.
Hinds to calve, is a phrase not for birth, but for confusion, to drive away, to scatter.
When a huge storm comes along, and is terrifying, then all of nature runs in all directions. Moms are separated from their babies. Confusion rules, and it is not until the storm comes to an end that both mother and baby are brought together again, if at all. Many babies are lost to the laws of nature and do not survive.
A shepherd will collect together his flock and point them in the same direction so as to keep them together and moving in the same direction. This cuts losses and keeps the flock safe. Wild animals do not have a shepherd and are therefore at risk and left to their own devices and luck. Nature has a high mortality rate as a result.
So, when the storm of God finally arrives, it will bring extreme fear, separating parents from children, and not just by accident, but parents will run from their children without thinking about their children. The mortality will be huge.
Those who are in the care of God, in those final days of history, as this portion of the prophecy states, will be safe and kept safe as the believers that are still alive, will have a focus on God, on Christ, and a clear direction for their life.
Discover the forest, means to make naked, to reveal that which is generally hidden, to shake the leaves from the branches and reveal all that is now bare and revealable.
And so, when the final days of the Tribulation finally arrive, and the seven thunders of God, from Revelation, are revealed then the true nature and depth and breadth and vastness of evil will finally be revealed. Nothing will remain hidden. Nothing will be kept from being seen. The great corruption of humanity as well as satan will be made clear.
And while we do not know the details of those seven thunders, their magnitude will clearly be beyond the imaginable, such that they can not only drive the geography of the world out into the open, but they will drive the extremes of evil from deep within mans soul, out into the open as well.
From Gods temple, all things speak of His glory.
This is not the temple of Jerusalem, not some church, not even the temple which resides within the soul of each believer.
This temple is a reference to everything in creation. Gods temple here referred to as creation, speaks out loud to the glory of Gods phenomenal plan for all of creation and all of history, bringing evil to its end and good to its proper place.
From all of genetics, to all of the structure of plants and animals, to the continents and the stars both near and far, to the phenomenal details of history and mans interactions within history, to everything you can possibly think of and far more. All will finally speak of God and of Gods glory and Gods ability to bring it all together.
Unfortunately most people never get it.
They live their entire lives and then leave this world and never get it.
All of angelic history and all of pre-historic history which covers millions or billions of years, we do not really know that duration, will not figure it all out until the final days of the Tribulation.
All of human history, which is now over 6000 years and counting, then even all of history never gets it and won’t, until the final days of the Tribulation, which is still future.
People have the chance to read this study, or any study for that matter, but most do not. And that is why they never learn, and never understand and always invent their own ideas, all of which are wrong.
And that is why history will head in the direction of those final and terrible days, still future. People bring it all on to themselves.
And it will take one last and final huge biblical event, greater than all other events, to finally make it all clear.
But even then, most will continue to reject Christ. And that is the really sad part of the human story.
You can be a part of that pathetic story, or you can get with a daily study, learn and grow up in your spiritual life, and have all that God intends for you to have.
