I Feel a Shaking!
I believe there is going to be a shaking of great magnitude very soon. You may remember several months ago, I wrote a blog entitled Brace Yourselves. Even then, I sensed God was bringing a shaking. I kept hearing the word “earthquake,” but I wasn’t sure if it was literal.
Now, more than ever I believe there is going to be a shaking—a sifting of the complacent church, and church leaders so to speak. I’m sensing a revival of repentance like we’ve never imagined. Some of you have waited for years feeling as if you were just treading water and getting nowhere fast. God is about to supercharge your boat! Your nets are going to break because of the overflow that is coming. Because of your faithfulness, obedience to God, and willingness to speak the Truth, He is going to bring it to pass.
I’m not worried about who will be in office after January, 2021. God’s will always prevails. He is in complete control, and no matter which way it goes, it is part of His plan. That is also why I believe this shaking will be a revival of preparation. It’s a revival of repentance to prepare the bride for the arrival of the groom. There will be no stopping it. Complacency must go! No liberal ideology, or tactic of the enemy will be able to thwart the plans of God. We will see Him move like never before.
As an earthquake sends shockwaves from deep beneath the surface of the earth, and causes structures to be removed from their foundations, so will this shaking be. Those who have not grounded themselves in the Word of God, and have not been obedient to Him will quickly fall from their foundations.
Those who have served up helpings of greasy grace followed by sugar coated words of deception will be removed from their platforms, if they refuse to repent and turn back to God. Truth will prevail. Wickedness will be seen for what it is—a masquerade of deception held by Satan and his influences. Witchcraft will be exposed and defeated.
Those who have taken this quarantine time to build themselves up in their most Holy faith will see the strongholds of the enemy begin to topple like skyscrapers built on sand. They will find God as their refuge and place of refreshing. The feeble arms, legs, hands and feet of the church will be made strong, and flesh will once again stretch over the dry bones that have laid dormant. Jesus is coming soon, and He is coming for a spotless bride. We must clean our garments and have an abundance of the oil of the Holy Spirit to fill our jars.
Those who have embraced worldly idols, and continued in their sins will be covered in the rubble unless they repent. Conviction will come upon hearts like never before. Some will listen to the wooing of the Holy Spirit, and others will turn a deaf ear, but the Spirit of God will move across the land.
The weak, timid, and humble will be made strong and bold enough to spread the Word of the Lord with an unmatched anointing. People will be drawn back to the cross. The things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of HIS glory, and only in His glory. Competition and jealousy between leaders and ministers will cease for those who come to total repentance.
When every eye is turned upon Jesus, and only when we have laid down all our idols—then we will see Him use us in the way He has longed to for so long. Yes, I sense a shaking. Shake us and wake us to see what really matters, Jesus. It’s all about You, and what You have called us to do—to speak truth in love so that others may be rescued from eternity in hell.
Help us to repent of anything that would come between our hearts and yours. Show us the seriousness of the hour. We don’t have time to sit around playing church when the lost are perishing.
Anchor us in Your love, and help us to gather all those who will come into the Strong tower of the Lord. We love You Jesus, and we give You all the glory. Amen.
