Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Hebrews 12: 26-27
This essay by Martin Selbrede will do for a sermon.
God shakes the earth. We see that as a hardship, a rough ride; but it’s also God’s promise. As for the shaking, “It is how God fulfills His promise to His people that they will inherit the earth while His government increases without end.”
You can read the whole essay for yourselves. I just want to add one more thought to it.
What if God didn’t shake the earth? What if He didn’t remove those things that oppose Christ’s Kingdom?
That should scare you worse than the shaking.
Remember the seed that was sown among thorns.
