The Lightning Tribe
I have been quiet lately because I have been working on a forthcoming full length book: The Christ Centered Shamanic Woman. I’m not sure how, but I need to finish the majority of it, or a shortish e-book version by the end of March. So I am working towards it. If you have ever written a book then you know it is sometimes messy and you don’t always know where it’s going, but ultimately I think it is partly a guide to claiming and practically applying your spiritual power gifts. It’s also about Jesus, who was the consummate shaman. And it’s about women and why now is the time that God needs us to pick up our medicine and heal the world. The book will be a lot of things, but hopefully it helps people. If you haven’t already, you may want to read my post called the Christ Centered Shamanic Woman for more context.
Psalm 97:4 "His lightnings enlighteneth the world: the earth saw and trembled."
Notice that lightnings is plural. There is a similar verse in Ps 77. The enlightenment the lightnings bring cause people to shake or tremble! Perhaps becuase of the presense or the glory that is revealed?
There are also some very interesting verses about lightning in Ezekiel 1 in the verses that seem to be about the chakras, in Revelations (lightnings go out from the throne of God), Job, and DC. In almost all these verses the interesting use of plural "lightnings" is used. In all the verses on lightning it seems to be associated with God's Presence coming... or his answers coming through his direction.
Job 37:2-3 Hear attentively the noise of his voice and the sound that goeth out of his mouth. He directeth it under the hole heaven and his lightning unto the ends of the earth.
D&C 43:22 says "....when the lightnings shall streak forth from the east unto the west and shall utter forth their voices unto all that live and make the ears of all tingle that hear, saying these words "Repent ye, for the great day of the Lord is come..."
D&C 43:v 25 says He has oft called us by "the voice of his servants and the voice of lightnings."
There are many more, but I'll let you play and search it out if you are interested.
