October 31 of 2021 was a night that I will not lightly forget. Something very strange happened when I was about to go into a prayer meeting, and looking back at it, I must conclude that it was totally prophetic!
For a week and a half, in the run-up to Halloween, a handful of Dutch prayer warriors and I had been meeting and praying via Zoom every night. It was an intense and beautiful experience to pray together with people, some of whom I had only recently met on Twitter. On Halloween, I was preparing for that night’s meeting. I was in my living room and outside it was raining violently. Then, thunder rolled in. I thought, “hey, it’s even turning into a thunderstorm,” but I didn’t pay much attention to it and started setting up my phone in preparation for the Zoom-meeting. Not long after that though, I realized that what I heard wasn’t like ordinary thunder. Normally, after building up to a climax, it will stop for a minute or so and then start again after a flash of lightning. This, however, kept on rolling and pounding without pausing for even one second. I got a strange feeling and decided to grab my phone. I carefully opened the kitchen door and started to record the sound of it. Mind you, the result of this recording is only a weak reflection of what I heard in reality:
There was movement in the sound. It was coming from the south, heading straight towards my house, and it felt like “something”, some kind of horde of whatever type of creatures was closing in on me through the sky, and the continuous pounding sounded like a mixture of thousands of loud drums and a large number of horses. Then lightning started to flash, on the very rhythm of the rolling thunder! I have to admit that it scared me a little, because I could actually “see” exactly where it was, touching the tops of the trees, then moving straight to my house, coming down… It sounded like a huge army storming into a battlefield, coming down from the sky!! It was eerie, because I had no idea what had caused it, where it came from.
And then, suddenly, it was over. When it had come close to the roof of my house, it dissolved in thin air and things went quiet. I went inside and we started our prayer time. While praying, two of us saw a vision over the big Halloween ritual that was done by a few hundred world leaders. They had attended the G20 the day before in Rome (also with a ritual), and they were now in Scotland for the COP26 climate conference. What I saw in the vision was a heavenly army of white, brightly shining angels in chariots with horses, rushing in through the sky and totally disrupting the scene of the ritual. Someone else in our prayer group confirmed that, seeing a bright light coming from the same direction in the sky.
At that stage, I didn’t make a link to the thunder I had heard a few minutes before our prayer time. None of us did. Only after the prayer meeting (which took 4 hours), one of our prayer warriors stumbled upon a Facebook post and shared it with me. She asked me: “Could this have anything to do with what you heard and saw?”
This Facebook post was published by Hezekiah’s Wall Ministry, in the exact hour that I saw and heard the lightning and thunder in the sky above my house. It’s based on 2 Samuel 5:24. And let it be, when thou hearest the sound of a going in the tops of the mulberry trees, that then thou shalt bestir thyself: for then shall the Lord go out before thee, to smite the host of the Philistines.
It’s days later, and I still am baffled, in a good way… In these dark times full of insecurity, our Lord Jesus Christ is not leaving us to our own devices! His armies are going before us, preparing the way… So take courage! Keep your head up and lift your eyes to the mountains.
Listen to this and let God minister to your soul. The pounding noise at the beginning comes very close to what I heard outside my house!
