Listen for the Sound of the Groans 

By Ken Mullis



A mystery revealed.



Leonard Ravenhill spoke and wrote about groanings which can not be uttered, as does scripture. Many years ago the Lord revealed to me through experience and scripture about these groanings, and how they differ from speaking in tongues. This occurred during an encounter with the Lord I experienced in 1997, where I had a vision of the greatest harvest, revival, reformation, and restoration that would occur, and I knew I was experiencing what others would one day be experiencing during this move of God. There are two scriptures that reveal the difference in what I am speaking of. If you have ever experienced groanings which can not be uttered, you already know through the Holy Spirit the difference between the two. 

Acts 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.



This scripture indicates they spoke as they were giving utterance. Language that could be spoken. Words could be formed and uttered through the Holy Ghost.



Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.



This scripture indicates groanings (sounds) that cannot be uttered or in other words, articulated with speech. Both of these scriptures are evidence of two distinct expressions and works of the Holy Spirit within us.



John the Baptist said, there is One coming after me who will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. Two works administered by Christ Himself through the Holy Ghost. Who will baptize you? Jesus, and He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. Where the commonly seen and spoken of  baptism of the Holy Spirit edifies and equips us through gifts of power and edification, the sometimes misunderstood baptism of fire through the same Spirit purges and purifies. Yet, both are works of baptism administered by Jesus, the head of the Church. 



We have experienced this as individuals and have seen  moves of God that lasted for periods of time where the presence of God came in such a way that the sound of a rushing wind came upon the people corporately. While these meetings came to apparent ends, the affects still remain to this day by many established ministries throughout the earth that are still viable today.



I believe we are at the precipice of seeing this type of move again but at a much greater level and as has been prophesied, without end.



When travail of the Spirit occurs, the things of the Spirit are being birthed and released into the earth. The atmosphere changes dramatically and suddenly, the sound of rushing wind blows through His temple. The things of the third Heaven are being released into the earth.


The Lord started speaking to me concerning these things:



"Listen for the groanings. They can not be pretended, they can not be imitated or duplicated at any level. No man can argue with My groanings. No man can manipulate My groanings. In the past these moments have been thwarted through ignorance, but in the days ahead, this shall not be. Those who release My groanings will pierce the darkest of hearts, and make faint the most wicked. My groanings which can not be uttered will speak a clear word into the hearts of men. The sound of a mighty rushing wind will ride upon the groans.



This is the baptism of My purging fire. This is the evidence of My refiners fire. More will be done in these moments for my sons and daughters than years of preaching, teaching, worship, exhortations, books, sermons, or events, yet when My groanings are heard, all of these things will be quickened, for nothing has ever been wasted, and all was necessary. My children will go in one way and emerge another. My groanings will cross denominational lines, networks, groups, camps, and other carnal separations. My groanings do not bow to men's theologies, however, their theologies will bow to My groanings. These groanings will be the sign and wonder of My refining fire. Sins, addictions, sicknesses, and various captivities along with the consciousness of all will be removed in an instant, for I will be ever present. Even those who are ministers who have not experienced the freedom I would desire, will be set free. My refiner's fire is not My anger, nor is it My punishment, rather it is My promise to those I love, and a work of My grace.



The groans are a mystery established by Me for My divine purposes, and only I can lead a man to this place. When a man groans he has transitioned to release the sound of My glory. Does the earth itself not groan? When a man groans his foundational plates are shifting into the divine order that only I can establish in the hearts of men. He can be assured of this. For when he groans in the anguish due to being in My presence his tears do not manipulate, conjure, or deceive. When a man groans he is made strong in his weakness. Groanings are the prayers of anguish and agony. It is a reckoning. The things of the flesh, nor the flesh itself, can stand in the presence and anguish due to the encounter of My refiner's fire. 



When the groanings emerge, I turn agony to impenetrable peace, as My preciousness and beauty emerges. When a man groans his tears become the liquid pearls collected in the bowls of Heaven. When your words are no longer enough, it is the groans that will be revealed and heard, and they will prove to be more than enough. For the groanings are the holiest expression of worship and deed that can be expressed. When the holy wailing groans emerge those who hear will say as Isaiah, as when he said, 'Woe is me! For I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of people of unclean lips: for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of Host.’



You have no established grid for what I am going to do because most of you still perceive with your natural reasoning, and you are not familiar with My groanings. My purging comes to remove what kills the life that would otherwise emerge. 


Did I not say suddenly I would come into My temple? Are you not My temple? While tongues may need interpretation where you gather, My groans will release a clear sound and moment of holy shock and awe and an understanding of who I am. When I sit among My people as the Refiner's fire, I will come through the groans. The groans will speak clearly of Me and of My present purpose. The reason I choose the groanings that can't be uttered is because what you can not do on your own will require you to exercise faith in what you do not understand. So it was and is with tongues as well. It is time to reveal the mystery of what has not been understood and what can't be uttered. The groanings are not a three step, five step, or seven step solution. They are not a religious spirited, philosophical or intellectual achievement, but a very offense to these things. Do I not use what's foolish to the world to confound the wise? Did I not say I would do more than you could think or imagine? 



Then the offerings of My children will be pleasant as in the days of old. There will be an unimagined resurgence of My bride. All creation groans for her, listen for the groans of My beloved! My bride will walk as I have ordained as it will be necessary for the harvest and the days ahead. There will be no man made fear conjured up in these moments, for I will not allow it, yet, I must say, do not be afraid. I say this because it will be necessary in these moments, just as I spoke the same to John when he fell as if dead in My presence before receiving My revelation. Was he not the apostle I loved?



When men arise from this, they will do what they see Me do and say what they hear Me say. They will know I AM the Author and the Finisher of their faith. They will know that I AM the Master Builder who is building My House, because I AM the living Head of the Church. 



When My Spirit groans in My children, My presence will overshadow and come upon those who  hear. This will be an impartation for some and a birthing for others of things to come. Those who believed they will be able to stand in this moment and oversee such things will not be immune from this work either. For the work that I do is holy. However, no one will touch what I will do pridefully without consequence. Even so, if they quickly turn their hearts to Me, they too will know My groanings. Love and humility will be the mark upon My children and every aspect of society will be affected.



This will happen sooner than later, for the sake of My elect. That is why I am now saying, 'Listen for the groanings of My beloved. Listen for the sound, be very attentive, and allow them to do what you can not do, for they are from Me. You will know My groans when you hear them, so I say hear them. Let the groanings speak to those who will hear. Let My people groan and wail. Let them groan and wail loudly and travail with great sobs and abandonment of the evil wisdom of this age, breaking the chains of all who will hear the sounds of reckoning.



When this happens the foundational stone of repentance will be seen everlasting in My bride, and will not have to be laid in Her heart again, because She is being prepared to carry the weight of glory that I designed from the beginning. The repentance I preach is not the repentance that man speaks, for this will flow like a river with all the other good things I have established. This repentance comes from My presence. My repentance produces My perspective. My repentance is not in competition with My grace. If My people have nothing that wasn't given to them, then repentance is no different. Do I not grant repentance? 



I did not come to hold men's sins against them, I came to purge them of their iniquities and sins, and this I shall surely do. Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? What I do will always be more than you can ask or think, but some speak as if they know the beginning from the end, and they don't. You know in part, but what is to be revealed will be revealed, and you will be a witness and a participant.



There will be great joy that comes from this. There will be great peace. In meetings following while there will be great joy, there will still be groanings which cannot be uttered. While one will laugh, another will weep and another will groan. Witchcraft will have no power where My groans are heard and will have no hold. My groanings confound the wise and prideful men will have no words, and elitism will have no place, because this will be foolishness to many, but wisdom to more. While some who hear the groanings may not know Me, they will know they have heard My heart. They will know I am pouring My spirit onto all flesh.



While the revelation of My grace is still more than most can understand and receive, My refiner's fire is as well. This doesn't mean there will no longer be trials or that the enemy is forever removed. This means your consciousness will no longer be opposing you, and you will be even more aware of the grace I have extended to you. You will see the enemy under your feet and you will walk in the majesty of My presence. This is a great paradox to human reasoning.



A true intercessor is familiar with the groans, and what has been hidden in the prayer closet will soon become a public demonstration as the corporate house that I am building becomes a corporate man's prayer closet.



Where life is revealed, someone travailed to birth it.



The time is at hand. Only brief glimpses have been seen before, because the revelation of My grace had to again be restored in the hearts of men, and will be restored greater still. For it will be My grace that enables a man to stand and carry the weight of this glory. In My glory is the lion and the lamb. Before the lion and the lamb lay down together on this earth, they must lay down together in the hearts of men. The groans are holy, and this is the work of My holiness manifesting in the hearts of My beloved. When this is done, men will know that they know the only leg they have to stand on is My finished work on the cross. Then you will know that you know the synonymous winds of love and humility are the legs that will carry the weight of My glory. Then you will know that you know that I am the Alpha and the Omega. 



I AM building My house. Unless I build it, it will indeed be built in vain.



This is the way it will be. Listen for My groans.’"



Malachi 3:1-3 “Behold, I send My messenger, and he will prepare the way before Me. And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple, even the Messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight. Behold, He is coming,” says the Lord of hosts. “But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire and like launderers’ soap. He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver; He will purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer to the Lord an offering in righteousness. 



John 11:38-39 Then Jesus, again groaning in Himself, came to the tomb. It was a cave, and a stone lay against it. Jesus said, “Take away the stone.”



My prayer: Lord let it be done in me according to your word. Let it start with me.

this is so beautiful and such a testimony to the Lord's healing power and sanctification through our suffering. Much of my walk with Christ is similar to yours.
