The God of Glory Thunders!

Psalm 29 for 2009

The Voice of the Lord

The last few weeks I've been asking the Lord what 2009 holds for the body of Christ and the corporate church. The Lord said that this year will be filled with the release and reverberations of His Voice. He told me it's the year of the release of the "Voice of the Lord" in Psalm 29.

Ascribe to the Lord, O sons of the mighty, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength. Give to the Lord the glory due to His name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness or in holy array (vs. 1-2).

The voice of the Lord is powerful (vs. 4). This is the year of "only speak the word and my servant will be healed" (see Matthew 8:8). It's a year of the spoken Word that manifests tangible power. Great power surges will take place in 2009. We'll see an increase and a release of consistent power. Scripture reveals that Jesus came into a region and healed all the sick. 2009 and beyond will prove to bring a more consistent release of power into many regions around the world.

The voice of the Lord is full of majesty (vs. 4). 2009 will also be the Voice of the Lord that releases Creative Power on the masses! In 2008 we traveled extensively throughout the nations. Like never before, in conferences and crusades, we witnessed the raw power of God released with explosive demonstrations of creative miracles—this will only increase in 2009. I believe we will see more extremities recreated in crusade and glory gathering events around the world. The world is looking for the God of the Bible and He intends to be found!

The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars... the cedars of Lebanon (vs. 5). According to Scripture, trees are like men (see Mark 8:24). This is a season and a year of breaking and making the men and women of God—either being qualified or disqualified for the next level of glory. We will see many young Johnny-Come-Latelies rise on the scene and demonstrate glorious wonders and signs never before witnessed as yielded broken vessels of Christ's love.
