A Peaceful Day in Hawaii and A Shaking
PEACEFUL DAY at Mokoli’i or Chinaman’s Hat on O’ahu, Hawaii.
A SHAKING took place yesterday afternoon before 2 p.m. At least a thousand or more people reported that they felt the 5.2 earthquake from the Big Island of Hawaii. My eldest daughter and I were startled with the shaking as many in the major Hawaiian chain who had experienced the earthquake, too. Earthquakes are plentiful here every day, but usually very minor.
It made me think about the SHAKING that is going on in these last days and the scripture verses from Hebrews 12:25-29.
See that ye refuse not him that speaketh.
For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven:
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.
Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
For our God is a consuming fire.
It is also a sobering fact that each of us must examine our hearts and relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Our lives could be snuffed out in a moment like in the collapse of the condo in Florida. How many of those folks are now ‘present with the Lord’? If you are a Christian and trusting Christ alone for your salvation, the Bible says when you leave this life you go to heaven. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord (2Cor 5:8)
Could you say with me as in the song, ‘On Christ the Solid Rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand, all other ground is sinking sand’. LET US BE STEADFAST IN OUR FAITH AND TRUST IN GOD! LET NOTHING SHAKE OUR FAITH IN GOD!
God bless you all!
