Signs Of The Times: The Shaking
The moment the Asian tsunami struck Thailand on 26 December, 2004
A Word Of Warning About The Shaking
On the 20th December 2004, the Lord spoke a clear "word" of warning:
"I AM SHAKING THE THINGS THAT CAN BE SHAKEN, SO THAT THE THINGS THAT CANNOT BE SHAKEN WILL REMAIN."
These words are based on HEBREWS 12:26-29 "At that time [in Moses' day] God's voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.” The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken — that is, created things — so that what cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our “ God is a consuming fire.”
Earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, floods, landslides
Six days later on 26th December 2004, a devastating tsunami hit South East Asia killing an estimated over 225,000 people across the region. Since then there has been further evidence of a worldwide shaking taking place - not just in terms of natural disasters, such as tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and devastating floods, but also in the economic, social, political and religious domains.
