Thunderstruck on Halloween

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?”

Facebook post by Hezekiah’s Wall Ministry, October 31, 2021.

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!

  1. Praise God!
    I’ve been praying alone at night for those precious souls that feel so alone and frightened and terrorized.

  2. What a fabulously uplifting Testimony to Our Creator, The One Living God, His Son, The Holy Spirit and all of His Angels that work against the Enemy… In the name of The King Of Kings, The Lord Of Lord’s, The Son Of Man, through the Power Of Jesus Crist I pray… Lord, please Bless the children, comfort and walk with them who have the misfortune of falling into the path of the Dark Ones and bring the Survivors back to The Safety of Your Love, Light and Warmth. Take the Souls of the children Your Will saw fit to bring Home up into the Heavenly’s where they will exist forevermore in Your Everlasting Peace and where they can be joined back to their familial roots. Amen and Amen.

  3. Beautiful!!!

    God speaks to me through dreams and visions. I had a dream recently that really disturbed me. I won’t go into all the details, but in part of the dream these formless creatures that looked like black/gray smoke were being released from barrels where they were chained and imprisoned. A high-up (one in command) creature snapped his fingers and said with an eerie, dark voice, “They’ve been released!” It was then that thick black smoke rose from the barrels and dispersed throughout the whole earth. There is much more to the dream but I’ll stop there.
    When I saw this video it reminded me of that dream. I believe God is preparing His people.
    Ephesians 6:11-18 tells us it’s not flesh and blood that we war against… but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places…
    The only way to prepare is to be in the Word and in prayer daily!!! May the Lord be with you and May His peace comfort you.

  4. I’ve only just now had the opportunity to read your blog entry. I felt I just couldn’t leave without telling you how talented you are as a writer. The entire length of the story was poignant, riveting, soul- lifting &, honestly, brilliant in its elegance. God has blessed you with such a beautiful gift.
    Thank you for sharing it with us & thank you for using this gift to honor Him.

  5. Oh my! That video! I cannot speak! Yes Lord! I can hear You! I can hear the thundering of Your Heavenly Army! Release it that YOU may be glorified throughout the earth and the atmophere!!! Tonight! Tomorrow as we walk into another phase of the assignment You have given us!! PRAISE YOUR HOLY NAME!!
