St John keeps driving the point to the readers that Jesus is the Son of God. He introduces many incidents and witnesses for the same and now He refers to the voice that came from heaven as Jesus sought to glorify the name of the Father. This voice is also a testimony of the Sonship of Christ. Through the history we see the voice of God being echoed from time to time. "Let there be light" was the voice of God that illuminated the universe and Jesus said that He is the light of the world and we are the light in Him. The voice shook the mountains and wilderness when the Israelites were marching towards the promised land. His voice always stood as a testimony of His move among His people. As Jesus cried out to the Father,"Father, glorify your name!â€ť, a voice came from heaven telling,"I have glorified it, and will glorify it again.â€ť The people heard the voice and thought it to be thunder. Others said an angel has spoken to Him. The people did not have the Holy Spirit to recognise the voice of the Father who spoke to the Son. Today He desires to speak to you and its all about the Son of God. We see the Father through the Son. We hear His voice through the Son who lives in us by the Holy Spirit. When we open the Holy Scriptures we hear His voice. Never misunderstand it to be a thunder or an angel's voice. He speaks and His voice is heard through the earth. Take time to hear from Him and you will never be the same again. Very soon the people of the earth will hear that voice again which ushers the church into His presence. It might appear as thunder again, but we who believe would be transformed by then.For further reading: 1 Thess 4:16-18, Rev 4:1..
