I recently saw a story on the internet about 100's of reports of strange sounds of unknown origin all over the planet. Some say they heard metallic sounds; others said they were like trumpet sounds. Is it all a spoof? Is it a hoax? Or, is it apocalyptic?
On one hand, it could be a hoax. The more foolish Satan can make Christians look, the more he can mock the Bible, the more he can infuse doubt and apathy into the minds of believers.
But, on the other hand, Paul does say, “that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time” (Rom 8:22). While earthquakes are alluded to, could it also be that such groans might be audible? Is it possible the earth is trying to tell us something!? “The mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands” (Is 55:12). If these sounds really are legitimate, maybe the 'earth' knows it is about to be released from bondage! Maybe these are the earth's "shouts of joy." Who knows? We may soon hear reports of trees clapping!
