The Very Heavens Are Being Shaken


Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying,

Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. Hebrews 12:26

The question on many hearts today is, “Why is there so much sickness in the body of Christ in this hour of time?” Cancer is on its deadly move in many Christians' lives. Crippling falls, inflamed knees and hips, and back problems affect so many. There are so many problems with allergies. The very breath of our being seems so extremely short, causing severe headaches and dizziness. Deafness is closing up our world. Depression is weighing us down from totally coming into the peace, quiet, and rest of the Holy Spirit. Stress and fearing those things which are coming upon the earth is consuming many in the body of Christ. If we look at these things in the flesh, it paints a very bleak picture, but there is hope. What we need to realize is that these physical manifestations of sickness are not only affecting our physical bodies, but also, and even more devastating, those things in our Spiritual walk. Luke and Paul are telling us what is happening:

Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. Luke 11:26

It is time to search our Spiritual health in light of these devastating diseases in our walk and also in the body of Christ. What is the Spiritual cancer that is moving so rapidly throughout the body of Christ in this hour? It is the continual bombardment of unhealthy, life-taking doctrines promising an easy religion. We are told that cancer cells feed on sugar. What are these sugar-coated precepts and doctrines that are spreading these cancer cells throughout the body of Christ? These cancers include the rapture, once saved-always saved, no suffering, and ultimate reconciliation, just to name a few. These and other doctrines promise the lukewarm church of today, an easy entrance into the Kingdom. These are taking their deadly toll. These are sapping our Spiritual growth. How long will it be before we realize that the body of Christ is in very deep trouble?

It is time to ask the Great Physician what we as the body of Christ must do. What are those areas in our Spiritual walk that must come in line with His Word and His plan for His church? It is time to go on into the deep things of God. We can no longer sustain this fleshly body on our past anointing. We need to diligently search for God's healing power to change our stinking thinking. We need to forget those things which are in the past, and cry out with all our hearts for the Spiritual healing God is desiring to do in the inner parts of our body, soul, and spirit. Jeremiah, the weeping prophet, cries out to the body of Christ in this hour:

Moab hath been at ease from his youth, and he hath settled on his lees, and hath not been emptied from vessel to vessel, neither hath he gone into captivity: therefore his taste remained in him, and his scent is not changed.” Jeremiah 48:11

Are you willing to allow this Spiritual purging of being emptied from vessel to vessel? Malachi further declares:

But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap:” Malachi 3:2

Are you willing to allow this Spiritual refinement to remove those things in your Spiritual walk that must be dealt with? Are you willing to say as Paul:

That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead. Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:10 - 14

Why is there so much sickness in the body of Christ today. It is because we are on the threshing floor to be beaten and thrown to the Holy Spirit wind so that all chaff can be removed from our Spiritual body. If we are not willing to endure the threshing floor now, we will have to endure the winepress of His wrath. I pray this is not necessary in your walk.

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.” II Peter 3:9 - 14

It is time, brothers and sisters in Christ to pour off the good wine from the settlings and lees in our inner most being? If we are to go on into the seventh day to be perfected, we must know that there is an overcoming that must be accomplished in our holy place experience.  Jeannie Kirkpatrick
