Faith Filled Friday: Thunder in the Court Room

July 3, 2020

Some judges have a thunderous voice. When the sentencing gavel hits the pad it probably sounds thunderous to the guilty party. A few months ago (4/20/2020) I did a post about whether God was in the thunder: Faith Filled Friday: Is God in the Thunder?

Hast thou an arm like God? or canst thou thunder with a voice like him? Job 40:9

Apparently there are more people who believe God talks in a thunderous voice than I realized. It was easy to picture the scene – the big burly officer, the scary loud crash of thunder followed by immediate darkness. This story just had to be shared for this Faith Filled Friday.

A very large, slow talking Highway Patrol Officer was giving testimony in a Magistrate’s Court. He was sworn in and began delivering his evidence in a loud, clear, but slow voice.
Part way through, there was an incredibly loud BOOM and a flash of lightning. At the same time, all the lights went out and the Court Room was plunged into a murky darkness with thunder reverberating in the distance.
A more timid but still slow voice piped up out of the gloom, “… but I was telling the truth.”

God thundereth marvelously with his voice; great things doeth he, which we cannot comprehend. Job 37:5

Have a blessed day.

The voice of thy thunder was in the heaven: the lightnings lightened the world: the earth trembled and shook. Psalm 77:18
