Why Did God Say That?

1 Comment

God says in His Word, “Once more, I will shake the heavens and the earth…” (Haggai 2: 6; Hebrews 12: 26). Why did God say that? What’s it all about? Perhaps one way to get a modern-times perspective is through author and pastor, Joel Rosenberg’s book, ‘Epicenter’. It’s a ‘must have’ book for 21st century followers of Jesus who want to have a solid Biblical view of endtime events spoken of in God’s Word. Rosenberg’s book title hits the mark. An epicenter is the point where an earthquake’s intensity is greatest. We can see the world trembling today with major physical, social, moral, and political upheaval. What should our response be when everything’s shaking?

As people of faith, we can be prepared in season and out of season. We can respond to challenges and times of crisis with a faith that overcomes even in and around the epicenters of turmoil around us. It may seem to us like a mammoth and impossible task…too overwhelming to manage.  However, for God, NOTHING is impossible. God simply needs us to partner in humble, obedient faith. And as Rosenberg puts it, God also calls us to responsibility: to pray, preach, proclaim and equip. I like how great long time evangelist and teacher of the Gospel, Morris Cerullo puts it, “God doesn’t reveal things to scare us but to prepare us!” In short, God’s given us a road map in His Word to deal with anything that comes along.

I encourage you to go all out for God. And read Rosenberg’s powerful book, ‘Epicenter‘. You can catch an  ‘epicenter’ overview from a recent sermon by Rosenberg at: Joel Rosenberg’s Blog
