I put up my Christmas tree a week ago. Yesterday we had our family over for Thanksgiving. One of my grandbabies is intrigued by the ornaments. I’m not so worried about him grabbing them; however, some are glass and could be dangerous to his little feet if they were to drop and break. It made me think about that tree and the security of the ornaments on the limbs. If I were to shake the tree, how many would drop and break? Are they clinging tightly to the branches, or are they at risk of falling and shattering?
If the LORD is shaking the earth right now, are you clinging tightly to him so you won’t fall and shatter?
At that time, his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Yet once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.” Hebrews 12:26
When Jesus warned the churches in Revelation to hold on to what they have, I believe this may be the same thing he is talking about here in Hebrews; a shaking loose of anyone who is not a follower of Jesus but especially those who are causing atrocities across the earth.
This phrase, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of things that are shaken—that is, things that have been made—in order that the things that cannot be shaken may remain. Hebrews 12:27
The kingdom of our LORD and Savior Jesus cannot be shaken, and that is our kingdom! Watch in awe as God shakes loose all who have sold their souls to the devil and have been wreaking havoc on the people of God.
