“9 And he came thither unto a cave, and lodged there; and, behold, the word of The LORD came to him, and he said unto him, What doest thou here, Elijah? 10 And he said, I have been very jealous for The LORD God of hosts: for the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away. 11 And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before The LORD. And, behold, The LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before The LORD; but The LORD was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but The LORD was not in the earthquake: 12 And after the earthquake a fire; but The LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice,” 1 Kings 19:9-12.
“There is a rumble in the spirit,” says The LORD.
“There is a disturbance in The Spirit as some who have spoken for Me, do not hear as they always have heard.
How do you for certain when I speak to you?
Does my voice bring clarity or confusion?
Even a small bird makes a sound in the forest and those who are there hear its sound. You can hear the crashing waves of the ocean as they beat against the shore.
You can hear the trumpet sound as it is played in the orchestra. For certain you can hear the lightning strike as its sound reverberates in the atmosphere.
But even as I spoke to Elijah in the cave, I didn’t come in the earthquake, or in the wind, but I came in that still, small voice.
Learn to know my voice; learn to distinguish between that which is true and that which is false.
Then you will be protected and know when trouble is coming. And when you hear my voice clearly, then you will be warned ahead of time about those dangers that are coming.”

Stephen Hanson of In His Truth Ministries came to The LORD is a special way in 1975 and has prophesied regularly since. In these end-time birthing pangs we are reminded that judgment must first begin with the household of God. Will we be prepared and ready?
