Everything Can Shake

Shaking is scary.

Shaking can be scary!

Sometimes I am amused at the way we think. We refuse to believe we will see an evil outcome from our evil actions. Our ignorance is not bliss, nor amusing however; because we will realize, (the hard way it seems) that we reap what we have sown (Gal 6:6-10). God will shake this world into position for His end time scenerio to take shape and progress will come according to His priorities. Everything can shake, because God is bigger than our world.

 No question… The time has come, we must set our hearts to listen for His voice again.

“See to it that you do not refuse Him who speaks.”
“If they did not escape when they refused Him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from Him who warns us from heaven?At that time His voice shook the earth, but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.” Now this, “Yet once more” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain.” (Heb 12:25-27)

God has been speaking and we have not been listening!

This is a day where we all need to get it right; because the shaking and turmoil we see today around the world, is going to increase. We must become unshakable, in order to be among those who negotiate the pitfalls of the next millenium.

Ears must be tuned into God’s heartbeat.

 We go through the wilderness to discover what must be removed, replaced and reshaped; to gain an ear that is tuned into God’s heartbeat. In order for our efforts to establish any real Kingdom advancement, we must hear our Commander and Chief. In this scenerio; its none other than Jesus, the Lord of the Heavenly Hosts.

I am reminded of Joshua’s surprising visit from this “Commander of the Lord’s Army” (Josh 5:13-15). Joshua’s agenda became an unimportant point as he recognized his position outside of Jericho. This was a fortified city and whether the Commander was for Isreal or not; all discussion was now over. The fact that the One, who commanded God’s army had arrived; was all that mattered. Joshua found himself in a place where hearing became his greatest asset.

 “What does my Lord say to His servant?”

Often the only way to recover this heartbeat is to have some shaking, some terrorist plot or national revolution, so we come to a place where the discussing ends. Our wisdom got us into this mess; only our reliance upon God, can get us out. Its in the shaking that we see the difference!
