THE SOUND: A Prophecy Hidden in Plain Sight!- A Word by Edie Bayer
I was studying Acts 2, and in verses 5-7 read THIS:
“Now there were then residing in Jerusalem Jews, devout and God-fearing
men from every country under heaven. And when this sound was heard, the multitude came
together and they were astonished and bewildered, because each one
heard them [the apostles] speaking in his own [particular] dialect. And
they were beside themselves with amazement, saying, ‘Are not all these
who are talking Galileans?'”
Wow! I have read this a dozen times and heard it preached more than that; however, not until TODAY did it jump off the page that “the multitude” that gathered once they heard “the sound” and listened to the apostles speaking in their own tongue consisted of devout, God-fearing men. More importantly, they were people who actually KNEW the apostles!
I had always thought that it was a gathering of miscellaneous peoples from anywhere and everywhere, people that just happened to show up on the scene; people just wandering by at a divine moment, regardless of where they were from or what god they were worshiping. Not true!
This changes everything! It is a prophecy hidden in plain sight! This means “the sound” (Acts 2:2, 6) was for them, the God-fearing ones, and it is for US, too! God is coming with a new sound! THE SOUND is NOT for everyone, everywhere, but if you are reading this, it’s for you – so reach out and grab it! The sound is not for the casual Christian, nor is it for the heathen! It is for devout, God-fearing people who know the sound-carrier Himself! This means you!
We are being called together by the sound, for the sound! The sound drew the multitude together so the Lord could minister to them further by the sound of His voice in their own language, drawing them to Himself. How did they know where to gather? How did they know where it came from, or what direction to follow? And for that matter, how will we?
“…‘Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts” (Zechariah 4:6 AMP).
It was the loud and clear sound, leading and guiding them – the sound made by the Holy Spirit! Up to this point the upper room believers were the only ones filled with the Spirit, so the Spirit had to call the other three thousand another way! He chose the sound, because God knows how to get our attention! He will get our attention, His modern-day believers, in a similar manner, rest assured! He will call us together when it is time, in the fullness of time, the new multitude, to minister to us further by the sound of his voice.
“When the fullness of time had come…” (Galatians 4:4).

This is the sound of heaven! Acts 2:2 says, “ Then suddenly there came a sound from heaven like the rushing of a violent tempest blast …” What does a “violent tempest blast” sound like? A tempest, by definition, is a sudden, violent storm, accompanied by high winds and sometimes by hail or rain. That sounds like a tornado to me! The Acts 2:2 violent tempest blast sounded just like a tornado hitting, deafening in its loudness, rushing like a freight train, dropping out of heaven SUDDENLY and violently!
Wow! This is the sound of heaven! The God-fearing ones in Acts didn’t miss it and we won’t be able to miss it, either!
God is coming with a new sound, just for us! He is calling us unto Himself, drawing us ever closer. He is calling the called, the God-fearing, chosen remnant of this hour. Be prepared to be amazed, astonished and even bewildered, just like the multitude of believers that gathered in Acts 2. When God shows up with His new sound just for us, there will be no doubt where it is coming from, or where we should go to gather as part of the multitude of God-fearing ones!
We may not understand it all but will surely be blessed to be a part of it…and God’s Holy Spirit will make sure we don’t miss it. His sound will guide us right to the source – the sound carrier!
Be blessed as you listen for the sound!
A TURNAROUND FOR YOU..
A word by Dana Jarvis
I decree you are making the spiritual journey from the bondage of Egypt into your promised land of destiny. I know you have grown weary. Do not let the murmurings and complaining attitudes rule you. It causes the faith to waiver! Your focus is upon the cup of bitter waters that you are currently drinking from.
Rest assured that your God is making these bitter waters sweet!
You shall taste and see that the Lord is good! You are going to see such extravagance in your daily life. He is delivering much into your hands so reach up and take hold. Just as he was with you before, he is with you now. You are going to drink deep of the Living Waters. The bitter waters of life have tried to steal all joy.
However I hear the Lord say, “It is done, I am the Lord who heals you. I am the Lord who will restore you. I am the Lord who will provide your every need. I am the One that is making the bitter waters sweet!”
I feel so strongly that God is removing your cup of bitter waters you have had to drink for so long. He is causing a turnaround for you in a situation that you desperately need him to move. I am speaking to several and know this word is for you. Even as the Lord led Moses and the children of Israel from their bondage at the Red Sea, it still took one step of faith. One step of faith is all it takes to cause a release from all of this. Take a moment and sow into good ground by giving into Spirit Fuel. For just a contribution of $25, $50, or even $100 or more given into Spirit Fuel is an active step and good ground on which to sow. It is a powerful ministry reaching the world for Christ. As you sow that offering, it is that act of faith that will cause the Red Sea where you are standing to part in your life. The bitter cup will be removed and the sweetness of the Lord shall begin to flow!
