Msg #2027 A Whole Lot of Shaking
What The Bible Says
Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice
Isaiah 24 captures how God is going to turn the earth upside down, and in the process, … “There is a whole lot of shaking going on.” Excuse that lyric if you know where it comes from, but God says some things about the upcoming shaking and the Christian is not to be at all shaken, even when America is. “For thus saith the LORD of hosts; ... I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house (Jerusalem's temple) with glory, saith the LORD of hosts.” (Hag2:6-7). The prophet goes on to say the LORD God will “destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathens” (vr22). America now qualifies. In one chapter Isaiah 24 artfully covers how “this earth mourneth and fadeth away”( vr1-2), how only a remnant of Israel is left (vr13-15), the great tribulation (vr16-20), the battle of Armageddon (vr21-22) and the coming Kingdom Age (vr23). The Protestant, saddled with covenant theology, can see none of this in their modernist ecumenical bibles, so the Bible student who understands the dispensations of God should not be “a reed shaken in the wind,” and “be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word... as that day of Christ is at hand,” (2Thes2:2). Be, instead, an unflappable witness. There is coming “signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon earth distress of nations, with perplexity; ...Men's hearts failing them for fear... for the powers of heaven shall be shaken” (Luke21:25-26). Don't be shaken; “That those things which cannot be shaken may remain” (Heb12:27). Be that unflappable witness of our coming Lord Jesus Christ.
