It is the sound of flood waters destroying life on earth (Genesis 7:17-24)
It is thunder from Mount Sinai (Exodus 20:18).
It is Jericho’s walls tumbling down (Joshua 6:20).
It is Goliath’s huge frame felled (1 Samuel 17:49).
It is heavenly fire consuming Elijah’s water-soaked sacrifice (1 Kings 18:30-39).
It is tables turned over in the temple court (Matthew 21:12, 13).
It is the curtain of the temple torn in two from top to bottom (Matthew 27:51).
It is the seals breaking from the stone set before a tomb (Matthew 27:66-28:2).
It is an earthquake opening prison doors (Acts 16:26).
Hearing it, I know my own smallness, but in the kindness of Him who guides each crash, I know my gladness, as well.
