BREAKOUT POSITIVE THOUGHTS. 515. ( Less is Greater, Greater is less .)

“At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Yet once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.” This phrase, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of things that are shaken—that is, things that have been made—in order that the things that cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire.”

God shakes the world to capture our attention and bring glory to glory and an increase in our encounter. The enemy shakes only to bring fear and trauma.

We want the whirlwind of God but not the storm of Satan.

God would have us to ‘come up here’ to see that we are not earth bound by circumstances but in flight with the pace of potential joy to be cascaded over us as we are rescued.

Our mind needs reordering into a kingdom mindset. The mind of Christ in us . Jesus will narrow the way through the turbulence to limit the frustration. To shake it from us so as not to be wallowed in.

We have to differentiate between what God is shaking and pray for increase not decrees. He has made whole mountains tremble to make known His presence.

“Now Mount Sinai was wrapped in smoke because the Lord had descended on it in fire. The smoke of it went up like the smoke of a kiln, and the whole mountain trembled greatly.”

He has prophesied that He will shake Nations before His glory descends and His blessings of wealth and fruitfulness come to pass.

“For thus says the Lord of hosts: Yet once more, in a little while, I will shake the heavens and the earth and the sea and the dry land. And I will shake all nations, so that the treasures of all nations shall come in, and I will fill this house with glory, says the Lord of hosts.”

He has made it clear that there will be judgement defining what is from Him and what is not so that evil is disrupted and all that remains is His kingdom.

“Yet once more,” indicates the removal of things that are shaken—that is, things that have been made—in order that the things that cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, “

He delights in our weakness when it causes our greater dependency on Him. To know and respond to the Holy Spirit.

“Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, “

Victory looks different in different seasons.

We are not meant to be sheep who follow only but be those who reflect Christ and therefore also lead. We respond to the “Go” and are anointed to lead.

“Now the Lord said to Abram, “Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you.”

There is pressure in society to conform and follow in the same direction as everyone but equally there are times when this is wrong and we have to be free to go against the popular flow and be different.

God is birthing a church who are willing to be different and courageously lead in a different direction course. Counter culture is brought forth and His kingdom birthed as we challenge the status quo.

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,”

We have a responsibility to lead others to Jesus.

The illustration shows the whirlwind of God shifting us to where He places us the place where His glory emanates as light that pushes back the darkness.
