Life Which Cannot Be Shaken - Message #353

- July 24, 2005

When we hear of a death in the family or a loved one is diagnosed as having cancer, we are shaken. It seems as though the rug of life is pulled out from under us. We are left flat on our backs. Our stomachs are churning. Our heads are spinning. We grope for something, anything to hang on to. Our world has been shaken.

The Bible talks about such things. When God came down on Mount Sinai, the earth quaked. The Bible says, "His voice shook the earth then, but now He has promised, saying, 'Yet once more I will shake not only the earth, but also the heaven.' This expression, 'Yet once more,' denotes the removing of those things which can be shaken, as of created things, in order that those things which cannot be shaken may remain" (Hebrews 12:26-27).

Wow! There is real hope here. Certain things cannot be shaken. What are they? Eternal things. Life, which cannot be shaken, is life connected to heaven. It is life bound up in God through the Holy Spirit. We can lose our jobs. We can lose family members. We can lose our cars and homes. We can lose all of our clothing. We can lose our health. Things associated with this life are easily shaken. But the Kingdom of God cannot be shaken. Those who come to God through Jesus Christ are members of this unshakable Kingdom. That's something to lean on. It's infinitely reliable. It's ultimately dependable.

This is one reason why Jesus Christ says, "Do not lay up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal; for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also" (Matthew 6:19-21).

Thanks Chad . To Lose all is to gain all ! Our reputation is in the eyes of others . But be of no reputation , and have nothing that you cannot give up for Christ and you will truly be free . Mike
Thank you

Yes thank you

My world has been shaken of late.

But this inspired me. God is true. We so easily place our faith in shakable things and even believe we can control all things if careful. It comes as a great shock if our life doesn't follow the expected plan. God is perfect yet we battle with faith in him. Completely ironic, how can it be difficult to place faith in the most faithful..... yet, we struggle when we see an imbalance in our earthly world.

God is Good.
