The present world as we watch it is undergoing shakings. Governments who are previously unmovable were trembling. Kings and Rulers who are untouchable in the past are being removed from their glorious palaces. Aside from unrest from different parts of the world, earthquakes and Tsunamis are getting stronger. It is time to read the signs of the time and check the historical map. Where are we, according to God’s master plan?

Shaking of the earth is not something that a bible reader should be surprised with. The bible recorded that it had already happened and predicted that it will happen again.

Heb 12:26 When God spoke from Mount Sinai his voice shook the earth, but now he makes another promise: "Once again I will shake not only the earth but the heavens also."

Heb 12:27 This means that the things on earth will be shaken, so that only eternal things will be left.

Heb 12:28 Since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be destroyed, let us be thankful and please God by worshiping him with holy fear and awe.

Heb 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.

Paul, the Author of the book of Hebrew summarized the above text from the book of Haggai Chapter 2:6-7.

The same book added the following prophecy in preparation for the glorious temple and heavenly kingdom:

“I will overthrow royal thrones, destroying the power of foreign kingdoms. I will overturn their chariots and charioteers. The horses will fall, and their riders will kill each other.” Hag 2:22

Today as I write this sermon, the 30 years regime of Egypt ruler fall and the heat of revolution are spreading to other countries in the Middle East.

The world as it has been shaken once again reminds us of three fundamental truths. And we must heed the divine call less we also be stumbled and shaken.


Heb 12:26 When God spoke from Mount Sinai his voice shook the earth, but now he makes another promise: "Once again I will shake not only the earth but the heavens also."

Lesson 1: No government or a person no matter how powerful they are has the power to remain. The world is changing as it revolves.

The shaking of the world power is not new to history. Daniel chapter two dramatically described it in prophetic way through the dream of the Babylonian king and through it the future transitions of the world powers were revealed.

1. The transition of the world powers explained: Daniel 2: 36-44

You looked, O king, and there before you stood a large statue-- an enormous, dazzling statue, awesome in appearance. The head of the statue was made of pure gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of baked clay. While you were watching, a rock was cut out, but not by human hands. It struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay and smashed them. Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver and the gold were broken to pieces at the same time and became like chaff on a threshing-floor in the summer. The wind swept them away without leaving a trace. But the rock that struck the statue became a huge mountain and filled the whole earth. Dan 2:31-35

1. The Babylonian Empire by Nebuchadnezzar -The head of Gold

2. The Medo-Persian Empire: by Darius & Cyrus -The arm of Silver

3. The Grecian Empire by Alexader D’ Great -The belly and thighs of bronze

4. The Roman Empire by Caesars -Legs of iron and clay

2. The coming of the Kingdom of Christ the Rock foretold:

Dan 2:44 In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure for ever.

3. Jesus confirmed the Rock which is our Corners Stone:

Mat 21:42 Then Jesus asked them, "Didn’t you ever read this in the Scriptures? ’The stone rejected by the builders has now become the cornerstone. This is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous to see.’

Mat 21:44 Anyone who stumbles over that stone will be broken to pieces, and it will crush anyone on whom it falls."

This present world and government will someday pass away. We have to put our hope and trust to someone who will remain forever. We should build our foundation of Jesus because he is the Rock of our salvation. We should build our foundation on Jesus the Chief corner stone.

To all my readers, English is not my native language. Hence I admit that I am far from being perfect when it comes to grammar. However, I consider it not a reason to stop sharing to the world the goodness and love of God. I apologize if I made some gramatical error. I''m using computer auto check when it comes to grammar. But sometimes it is also not enough. Everytime I write, it is not to show my ability but to declare the goodness of God in spite of my limitations.
