Dear Body, September 4, 2007
We live in the day when we witness many of God's promises coming to pass. We can depend on God's promises, but some of God's promises are not what we may want in our life. One such promise is the promise of God shaking the earth. In his letter to the Hebrews, Paul declared the time when God spoke to ancient Israel on Mount Sinai, and the people refused to hear God's voice:
"See that ye refuse not Him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused Him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from Him that speaketh from heaven: Whose voice then shook the earth: but now He hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also the heaven. And this Word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain." Hebrews 12:25-27
God has promised not only to shake the earth, but the heavens also. When God speaks of the earth He is speaking of the physical earth (the terra firma upon which we live). He also speaks of the earth as the flesh realm. When God speaks of heaven, He is speaking of the area above the earth (the sky). He also speaks of heaven as the Spiritual realm above the fleshly earth realm.
God is truly shaking the physical earth with earthquakes, volcanoes, floods, fires, roaring waves, and rising water levels from melting ice caps because of global warming. God is also shaking the physical expanse of the sky with planes crashing, asteroids threatening the earth, and damaged space shuttles. All these are signs of the end of the age.
Truly man's fleshly existence is being threatened by all this shaking of the physical realm. Beyond all these things we have the threat of nuclear war and nuclear terrorism, also the threat of the total financial collapse of the whole world's economic system. People by the thousands are losing their homes. Predictions of one million home foreclosures are expected in the next twelve months. The stock market would have already collapsed this last month if it had not been bolstered with billions of dollars being poured in by the major banks and the fed. This financial pressure has caused the breakup of many homes. Crime is at an all time high. Innocent children are being kidnaped, raped, and killed by deranged minds. Child abuse has never been as bad as it is today. Incest is rampant in homes. Even those who are supposed to represent Christ have been found guilty of the rape of innocent boys. Others who stand in the pulpits are guilty of being homosexuals (Sodomites). Truly the words of Jesus have never been more true:
"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 21:26
Men's hearts are failing them for fear. Fear has gripped the earth, and the powers of heaven are being shaken. For generations this nation has been recognized as a Christian nation. The fear of God was on the people. Today, this nation has all but forgotten the one true God, Christ Jesus. His name is slandered, mocked, and has become a byword. Today the Moslems are called holy and their "emans" have become the spiritual leaders. Their mosques have replaced the church in the minds of many.
God's promise this time is that His voice will not only shake the earth (our earth), but the heavens also (our Spiritual walk in Him). Even the powers of the Spiritual realm are being shaken. Those who claim to be Spiritual are being shaken to the core of their beliefs. Why is God shaking the heavens (the spiritual realm) and the earth (the physical realm)? It is so everything that can be shaken will be removed. God is trying to get man's attention. His whole desire is to have mankind turn their hearts back to Him.
When there is a disaster, people do not run to the mosque, they fill the churches and ask God's people to pray. We need to heed the words of the prophet Isaiah:
"And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the Lord, and for the glory of His majesty, when He ariseth to shake terribly the earth. In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats;" Isaiah 2:19-20
Today man's whole purpose in life is to get rich, but their wealth will do them no good when God's shaking is complete. We need to ask the question, "Will America ever wake up and repent and turn from their wicked, immoral ways?" I believe we all know the answer to that question!
Things are going very well in Northern Maine. We have had a most, beautiful summer, and are looking forward to the beautiful fall colors. We want to thank all those who have shared with us over this last month. If the vital words have been a blessing to you, drop us a line or give us a call.
As always in Christ,
