Listen... Do you hear it? There's a sound rising in the earth. Getting louder... by the minute. It's the sound of freedom, it's the sound of grace- as a holy generation seeks His face!

It's the Sound of Heaven filling the earth
It's the sound of freedom it's the sound of love
The breath of God is blowing bringing life to these dry bones
Blow Wind blow
Flow River flow
Fill the earth with the Sound of Heaven

"How blessed are those who know the joyful sound! Oh Lord, they walk in the light of Your countenance."  Psalms 89:15 NAS

Adam and Eve heard the voice, the sound, of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day. David heard the sound as of a mighty army rustling through the tops of the mulberry trees as a sign that the Lord of Hosts was with him in battle, assuring victory.

The citizens of Jericho heard a sound, a shout from the children of Israel in obedience to the Lord that caused the strong city walls to fall down. The disciples heard a sound like a rushing mighty wind on the day of Pentecost.

What is "the sound?" It transcends the natural. I heard a sound from 4 brothers from Thailand who sang a song in a language I did not understand, with voices that, let's just say, were less than polished (and not in tune to my western ears!) Yet, all of us who heard that song, that sound, began to weep as we were overcome with the Love of God. I heard the sound of the Spirit underneath the door of my daughter Celeste's room as she worshipped. It wasn't just the worship music from her Ipod, it wasn't just her sweet voice; there was a supernatural sound of the Spirit of God.

Jesus is enthroned on the praises of His people. He makes His Presence known as we exalt with our yielded lives, and our song. It is the sound of faith, passion, the sound of the Word of God.

Not only can we hear the Sound of Heaven, we, through faith by the Holy Spirit, can actually release the Sound of Heaven on earth. His voice joins with our voices as we send forth the Word of God to change the atmosphere and help people to begin to hear the Voice of God! God created the universe with His Word. That Word, Jesus, lives in the children of faith. Death and Life are in the Power of the tongue. Let's speak and sing words of life and let our lives be a fragrance of grace and a source of blessing to all who have ears to hear!

Listen... do you hear it?
