I was awakened during the early hours of the morning on this past Sunday to hear these words spoken, “I Am shaking!” Immediately the Word spoke from the book of Isaiah 2:19 (Good News Bible) “People will hide in caves in the rocky hills or dig holes in the ground to try to escape from the LORD’S anger and to hide from His power and glory, when He comes to shake the earth.” The Word continued speaking, Haggai 2:6 “Before long I will shake heaven and earth, land and sea.” Pausing for a moment, the Word rang out from Isaiah 13:13 saying, “I will make the heavens tremble, and the earth will be shaken out of its place on that day when I, the LORD Almighty, show my anger.
Could it be that you and I have become like heathens who know not God and are doing abominable things, which has kindled the wrath of God against us as a nation? Too much murder and wickedness all around the globe is taking place. One has only to turn on the radio or television or connect with the internet and you will see and hear for yourself a great shaking is taking place in every nation including the Bahamas!
The wrath of God is kindled against us as a nation; we have abandoned the house of the LORD and each one seeking after our own way! There is a clarion call for Yahweh’s people to repent from the pulpit to the door: Repent of all the evil of your doing! Put away from you lying, stealing, murder, adultery, fornication, perversion, back biting, and every work of the flesh! Repent! The Word is resounding this time from the book of Joel 2:12-13, 15, 16-17. (12)” But even now, “Says the LORD, repent sincerely and return to me with fasting and weeping and mourning.” (13)” Let your broken heart show your sorrow; tearing your clothing is not enough.” Come back to the LORD your God. He is kind and full of mercy; He patient and keeps His promise; He is always ready to forgive and not punish.” (15)” Blow the trumpet on Mount Zion; give orders for a fast and call an assembly!” (16)” Gather the people together; prepare them for a sacred meeting; bring the old people; gather the children and the babies too. Even newly married couples must leave their homes and come.” (17)” The priest, serving the LORD between the alter and the entrance of the Temple must weep and pray: “Have pity on your people, LORD. Do not let other nations despise us and mock us by saying, ‘Where is your God?”
The question is are you and I willing as a people and as a nation to put away the evil of our doing and do what thus says the LORD and repent? Pause for a moment as you ponder on that question and think about this, what if that great and dreadful day of the LORD meets you unprepared? Yahweh is shaking all nations! Will you and I be able to stand The Great Shaking?
