Some physicists believe that if we could reduce the atom to its absolute end, all we would have would be "sound." No one can prove that either way but spiritually, it makes sense. God spoke "Light be!" and the first dawn of Creation began. When the Pharisees told Jesus to make His disciples be quiet, He replied, "I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out." Luke 19:40. Interestingly, there is a musical note in every substance. In my opinion, someday, the farthest star will explode in that glorious sound of God’s orchestra. Perhaps that will accompany the Resurrection.
If two tuning-forks are in the same room, one is struck to produce a musical note, the other, without being struck but being held up, will begin reproducing the sound of the first. The second intercepts the vibration of the first and responds sympathetically to it. This happens because the tuning forks are made of the same material, are of the similar design, and share a musical compatibility. Even when they are a distance apart, the one un-struck will duplicate the sound of the other. There is a parallel to this in the spirit-realm. After we are born-again, we are made "like Christ," and in a way similar to the tuning-fork, are able to respond to Him.
Romans 8, reveals part of that response. In this chapter, the Apostle Paul identifies three forms of intercession; all of which are related, and two of which "vibrate" in harmony with the first. The original one is Christ, Who, is at the "right hand of God making intercession for us." The intercessory-response which the others make comes forth with "groaning." Jesus' prayer is not identified as groaning but may be. Observe the pattern:
1. "... Creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God ... For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now." Vs.19, 22.
2. "Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought but the Spirit makes intercession for us with groaning which cannot be uttered." Vs. 26. II Corinthians 5:1-5.
3. "Christ ... who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us." Vs. 34.
When Jesus approached the grave of Lazarus, anticipating his resurrection, "He groaned in the spirit and was troubled. And He said, where have you laid him?" John 11:33,34. Paul, in anticipating his future resurrection, said, "For in this (body) we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven ... in this tent we groan, being burdened ..." II Corinthians 5:2-5.
Soon after my baptism in the Spirit in 1977, I began experiencing changes in my prayer life. One, which I did not understand, and for which I had received no teaching, came in a surprising way. I was worshiping, when suddenly I felt a drawing in my mid-section that bent me over into a birthing-position; a wailing-groan came out of me. It was not something I did; it was something done to me. The experience was physically painless, yet spiritually agonizing, and lasted for several minutes. Strange as it was, I felt intensely connected to God. Much later, in reading Scripture, I realized I had experienced the Holy Spirit's "intercession through me with groaning which could not be uttered." In that moment, I had been called, harmonized, into Creation's birth-pangs. My tuning-fork had merely responded to the vibration of the Great One. Astonishing! Magnificent!
Someday, as a result of that
Universal Intercession, the farthest galaxy in space "will be delivered
from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the sons of
God." Romans 8:19-21. Let me warn you: Do not try to "fake" this
prayer. That approaches mockery. Instead, offer yourself to Christ as an
intercessor; let Him have total control. It may be that you will experience the
Cosmos' Universal Prayer when "All nature sings and 'round you rings, the
music of the spheres." Hallelujah!
