I know I have posted a lot recently, i am just full of thought! The incident at 3:33 am last night made me think about other things that have happened to me during the night. On March 13th (not too long after I was lead to these web sites and really accepted that the end was near--I was in great fear at first)...I was lying in bed with my fiancé, feeling so guilty for sinning. I cried and shouted out to Him in my heart and was scared for my life. Then, it was close to 3 am, I heard three UNMISTAKABLE LOUD DISTINCT door knocks RIGHT OUTSIDE OF MY ROOM! of course, no one was there. I wondered for awhile if I was crazy, but I am not. I researched it online to see if anyone else had this phenomenon and it led me to some verses about Jesus saying "Behold, I am at the door, I knock." Has that happened to anyone else ever?
Three Knocks, No one there(6 posts) (5 voices)

Ok just this past weekend I was sound a sleep and I heard three loud knocks that woke me up. I thought it was my son banging around but my wife didn't hear it and she was awake listening to me snore at the time heh. Before the three knocks I was having a dream about multiple earthquakes happening and I was shocked when they were saying "oh that was a 12 or 13 pointer" referring to the size of these earthquakes.
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. Revelation 3:20
Lauren, here Jesus draws a word picture of Himself outside of the church of Laodicea, which had decided it was self-sufficient without the presence of Christ. They did not realize their spiritual condition, which was neither hot nor cold and the Lord warned them that He would vomit them out of His mouth if they did not repent. Therefore, because He is a gentleman, He waited outside the door of a church that claimed to belong to Him, to see if there was anyone in it that would respond to His desire to have fellowship.
One interpretation of the letters to the seven churches is that Laodicea (rule of the people) is depicting the spiritual character of the church that enters the Tribulation period, while the preceding church of Philadelphia (brotherly love) is told they will be spared from the hour of testing that will come upon the whole world.
There are several possibilities for what you heard. One is that it may have been some natural occurrence with a source you haven't identified yet. I don't wish to put ideas into your head, but mysterious knocking is often associated with supernatural activity. Many people report hearing knocks, actually. Sometimes even Christians report hearing them. But all I can say about them in relation to how God operates is that I can't think of anything in the Bible (other than the illustration to the Laodicean church) where knocks in the night are used by God to reveal Himself. He would more likely just tell you what He wants.
In any case, I would suggest that you should test the spirits, as in 1 John 4:1.
Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
I am in no way accusing you of seeking such activity, nor can I say where it came from. It could have some totally commonplace explanation, such as ventilation ducts. But just in case, if you think it is not natural, it certainly wouldn't hurt to ask if this is not from God for it to depart in the name of Jesus.
And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. Matthew 14:28
The disciples were frightened, thinking they had seen a spirit walking on the water. Peter took the matter head on and asked for confirmation it was really the Lord. My advice is if you don't know what's going on, run to the arms of the Lord and let whatever comes knocking take it up with Him.
Thank you for your replies!!! I know for a fact that it was nothing natural. It was as clear as day, almost like it was right by my ear. And I think it was resembling His knock on my Laodicean spirit. I have been a Christian since I was 15, but was lukewarm, until that night...where I repented hard. Maybe that was it....the only reason I think it was of God is because it led me to that scripture. Who knows. I really can't be sure I guess. i am still trying to find out how to "hear" from God. I have supernatural occurrences sometimes. One time i was in the shower and i was praying to God begging for something to show me that He hasn't forgotten me...and at that moment, I looked at the shower door (sliding door)...and a rainbow appeared!! And, there was no window and sunlight in the bathroom. It was comforting. Thanks guys!
People on other message boards have reported this as well.
For me it was hearing my door bell ring.
Lauren, does this mean you have repented from what you were doing when you heard those knocks? Has that situation changed then? Living together isn't marriage per God's definition. Perhaps why He was trying to get your attention.
No judgement here but also please remember we have teens here that shouldn't be hearing of this example from a Christian Believer. Parents, Grandparents are teaching abstinance. This counterdicts this message of remaining pure for one's husband or wife one day in the future. I'm surprised you feel so relaxed to discuss it on a Christian forum as though it's proper to do so. It could cause another to stumble.
God doesn't judge us by society's standards. He's given us commands for His standards that we strive towards even though we may fall.
This why we need a Savior. Why we need grace and mercy. Why the 10 commandments were given..because this standard is one we fail in as humans. This is pointing the way to Jesus as that Savior we so badly need. Jesus paid our penalty. When we ask for forgiveness He gives us grace we don't deserve. True repentance is correcting the sin also.
You don't need to answer me but I will close this thread due to that example. There's more going on here then 3 knocks.“The eyes of the lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him.” — 2 Chronicles 16:9
