Earthquake

Have you also sensed this? I think a lot of people have. There’s a stirring, a rumbling, a shift about to happen. I sense a great move coming. It’s global and immanent. It’s deep calling to deep.
In the natural, right before an earthquake, there is a rumbling. It’s loud. It heralds the coming of the shaking. It’s a warning given a split second before the quake begins. It seems to throw us off balance because it’s so strange, but it warns us to take cover, to hold on, to seek immediate shelter.
An earthquake is a shifting of tectonic plates that causes the ground to shudder. It would follow then that a spiritual shaking is a shift in the very foundational beliefs of Christianity men have layed down to help them control their own interpretations of God’s Word. These are interpretations that became law, false religion, false doctrine, legalism or frivolous tradition. When these things are shaken, the core of the faulty foundation is exposed. That foundation cracks and crumbles under the weight of rules and regulations, works that have no eteral value. The rubble falls away leaving the true foundation exposed. That foundation is strong, reinforced and true and it continues to stand even if the walls of the structure are gone. Once the refuse is swept away, new construction can begin with bricks of truth, peace, love and freedom.
How joyful to be relieved of things not eternal! Shake me Lord, expose wrong and faulty foundations. Let the deep roots of my salvation choke out the crumbling bricks and mortar of wrong doctrine. Free me from my own made up things that seem logical, but are not of You. Build me up in your truth, your love and your freedom.

I'm a Christian writer who just wants to love others and see them prosper in an abundant life. I love to sit in the presence of the Lord and converse with Him about what is in His heart. I love to go to Heaven in the Spirit and walk the streets of that glorious city. I hope you enjoy what the Lord has given me to write.
