The Voice of the Lord

The Lord our God speaks & He speaks eternal truth through authority & power.
That majestic voice is both spectacular at other times very simple, both mighty & mild. SELAH
Yesterday we saw the Lord’s voice that shatters nations & scatters His enemies.
A shadow of Christ returning victoriously to forever silence & banish Satan & evil (Revelation 19 nb verse 15).
Today we will look at the voice of the Lord that shakes ALL things!!!


whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.” Hebrews 12:26


This passage is a quote from the old Testament prophet Haggai (Haggai 2:6,7 & 21).
It refers to God speaking at Sinai & the earth shaking as the people trembled (Exodus 19).
The New Testament writer is using it to show how God is constantly shaking all things.
God speaks & His voice shakes both the earth & the heavens. Awesome power, majestic splendour & might.
Anything, & everything, that it not founded on the Lord Jesus Christ & the kingdom of God will be removed.
The only solid, reliable ground is the Lord Jesus – our solid rock & firm foundation.


The voice of Your thunder was in the whirlwind; The lightnings lit up the world; The earth trembled and shook. Psalm 77:18


Only that which is unshakeable can stand & endure when the Lord speaks.
Through trembling & shaking all that is not aligned with God & his will, word, ways will be forever removed.
The voice of the Lord is forever shaking the systems of this world & the unseen rebellious heavenly powers.
The old order is being shaken off so that the unshakeable kingdom can forever remain.
This will be accomplished fully at the return of Christ (Revelation 11:15).
No one, & nothing, can ultimately stand against our God. Victory belongs to Jesus. SELAH

The Lord is with us & for us, forever, whilst we remain ‘In Christ’.
We belong to the King & are part of his unshakeable kingdom.
The Lord’s voice that shakes ALL things is a terror to the enemy but a comfort & joy to His beloved children.
Keep standing firm upon, & in Christ the Saviour. Hallelujah!!

For Reflection

  • How do I make sense of & interpret the current shaking the world is experiencing right now?
  • In what ways am I staying close to Christ & standing firm upon the Solid Rock?
  • Meditate upon the Lord’s voice that shakes ALL things.

A song related to this theme:


Prayer

Heavenly Father,
Thank you that Your voice shakes all things, the earth & the heavens,
So that only Your unshakeable kingdom remains.
Jesus thank you that You won the eternal victory through Your death & resurrection,
And that You will return to set ALL things right in God’s glorious New Creation.
Holy Spirit keep me prayerful, patient & persevering,
As I experience the current ‘shaking’ of this world,
May I be amongst those who endure to salvation.
This I ask In Jesus mighty Name.
Amen
