When I was growing up one of my chores was to shake out the rugs. I would go on the back steps and shake them out with a snap. I had a picture of this time in my life come into focus this morning as I was listening to Dutch Sheets and the Lord said, “I am shaking out the dirt in the nations.” When God snaps the heavens and the earth with this shaking the dirt is going to be removed from us so righteousness and justice can reign in us. Get ready for in a snap it’s all going to be shaken.
Hebrews 12:25-29 “See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks. If they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from him who warns us from heaven? At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.” The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken —that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our “God is a consuming fire.”
