Hebrews 12:26 Says "yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven." Yet, once more indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things cannot be shaken may remain. Verse 28 says "We are receiving a Kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear."
The Lord is indeed shaking everything that can be shaken from the United Kingdom and Brexit to the the United States and the nations. We are seeing extremes in the weather system in the world to extreme temperatures and flooding.
Many of our institutions and businesses are being shaken our economy is being shaken and we can no longer put out our trust in our politicians but in God alone.I am reminded in Luke 21:28 Jesus says "Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift your heads, because your redemption draws near." He went on to say we would hear of wars and rumours of wars. We are indeed seeing this happen with tensions in the Middle East and the recent attacks by Iran on Saudi Arabia's oil facility and the threat by Iran to destroy Israel.
According to Ezekiel 38 & 39 there will be a major war in the Middle East.
As we see events rapidly leading up to this day - we need to prepare for such a time as this as the entire world's economy could change overnight - our way of life would drastically change. Addressing the 7 churches in the book of Revelation - Jesus said to the church in Sardis in Revelation 3:2 " be watchful, and strengthen the thing that remain , v6. He who has an ear, let him hear what the spirit says to the churches." Are we hearing what the spirit
is saying to the church and are we acting on it. Are we carrying his light & truth to those who don't know him? are we redeeming the time - Jesus said a time would come when darkness will come on the earth and we won't be able to work. Is the bride making herself ready for the return of the bridge groom - Jesus Christ!
Please pray for the United Kingdom and for Brexit. Pray for the body of Christ to be a light in the darkness and to carry the truth of God's word. Pray for many to turn to God at this crucial hour and for this generation to be reached with the gospel. Joel 2:28,29 "I will pour out my spirit on all flesh: Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy , Your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions, and also on my menservants and on my maidservants I will pour out my spirit in those days ."
