Metaphysical meaning of lightning (rw)
lightning--Represents force, light, power. Jesus said, "Think not that I came to destroy the law or the prophets: I came not to destroy, but to fulfill" (Matt. 5:17); that is, He came to demonstrate that natural and spiritual law are one. He foresaw this very period when "the powers of the heavens shall be shaken" (Matt. 24:29)--that is, the mental realms were to be broken up--and He attributed this phenomenon to the coming of the Christ as "lightning."
