Today: When God shakes!
Passage: Hebrews 12
26 At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.”[e] 27 The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken—that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain. (Heb.12, NIV 84)-emphasis added
The quote above that the writer Hebrews quotes is from the book of Haggai, chapter 2, in the Old Testament
The very earth we live-in will be shaken because something new is about to come
That is why it is better to put our trust in God than in Gold or anything else here. The word of God is true, even as they say there is no such thing as “God”
I have seen the very people who say “there is no God” blame “God” when something bad happens!
We have read all these scriptures, but forgotten them as well!
But right now, many of those scriptures appear to make more sense!
35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. (Mat. 24:35, NIV 84)
1 The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, and their ways are vile; there is no one who does good. 2 God looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God. (Ps 53, NIV 84)
These are days when many people will turn to God; on the other hand, persecutions will increase and many will abandon their faith
It is time to really get into the habit of praying
God alone can STOP the things man cannot
When man builds and put things together, they think they can control what they create; but when things get out of control, they look up!
It is then they understand the foolishness of their wisdom
When God does things, He does it perfectly
Edison, who invented lot of electrical equipments including the Electric bulb, once sat over a few eggs (when he was a child) to see if it will hatch
This is what man sometimes does. He gets a few “tips” and starts acting
7 He spreads out the northern skies over empty space; he suspends the earth over nothing.
8 He wraps up the waters in his clouds, yet the clouds do not burst under their weight.
9 He covers the face of the full moon, spreading his clouds over it. (Job 26, NIV 84)
God bless you. You and me are not “chasing the wind” when we follow God
Instead, we are doing the right thing, as we put all our trust in God, the creator and sustainer of the universe
Prayer: Lord Jesus, we are thankful to you for considering us to be yours even though you created the heavens, the earth, the galaxies and the entire universe. I bow before you and I pray for those going through sufferings of various kinds, all over the world, especially in Japan. Thank you once again. Amen
