The Lord is shaking everything that can be shaken.
“Once more I will shake not only the earth, but also the heaven… so that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.” (Hebrews 12:26-27)
That which cannot be shaken will live among that which is shaking, but only that which cannot be shaken will remain. (Hebrews 12:28)
One IS being divided from the other. (Hebrews 12:13) Those issues of the heart over which we’re willing to sell our birthright are being divided from those issues over which we are not willing to sell our birthright. (Hebrews 12:5)
Tragically, some are, through the storms of 2020 etc, selling their birthright and becoming enemies of the cross (Philippians 3:18) dividing and divorcing themselves from the household of God and those who are not and will not sell their birthright.
The One Who walks among the lampstands is speaking with a two-edged sword from His mouth. (Revelation 1:16)
The Word of the Lord is that which pierces (Acts 2:37; Hebrews 4:12) the inflated and swollen ways of the heart. If not pierced, this curse will ultimately fester, harden and manifest itself as (Psalm 2:1-3) rage against God; a casting off of restraint (Proverbs 14:16 and Proverbs 29:18) ; yoke; discipline and correction.
Many Christians don’t have a theology of shaking.
Many many have no understanding what the Lord is zealous to have remain and what He is removing.
Many many have a “false understanding” of what needs to remain and what will be removed.
Many many many don’t know what they need to do in order to cooperate with the Lord in the division process. They don’t know how to “strengthen the things that remain” (Revelation 3:2)
Many do not recognize the values/ways/life-patterns which are in the process of dying. (Revelation 3:2)
Many many many many will not “stay alert”. (Revelation 3:2)
Many do not know how to call upon Him while He is near. (Isaiah 55:6)
Many will seek Him when it is too late – having to attempt to do something that’s abnormal for their lifestyle in an hour of desperation. (Hebrews 12:17)
