The coming quaking

This is what the LORD of heavenly forces says: In just a little while, I will make the heavens, the earth, the sea, and the dry land quake. I will make all the nations quake. The wealth of all the nations will come. I will fill this house with glory, says the LORD of heavenly forces.
-Haggai 2:6-7

I believe that a shaking is coming. I believe God is going to shake the nations. I believe that it will change things. Some things and people will be shaken loose and other things and people will be shaken from their high places.

I believe that the wealth of the nations will come to the house of the Lord (the church), and I believe that God is going return His glory to His house (the church).

Originally, Haggai wrote this word about 500 years before Christ; that Messiah would come, he would physically enter the temple, his coming would quake and shake all the world, he would redeem the nations, and fill the temple with glory. It came to pass in Jesus.

But in the past 2000 years, it has happened over and over, as Christ's impact reverberates through the nations and the heavens and the earth. Things that are not in alignment with God and Christ shake and quake and come apart as God's kingdom invades.

God's movements are like quakes and shakes. Like in a shaking, we are quickly made aware that something different is happening. We wake up. We come to attention. "What is that?", we ask. We stop, look, and listen.

I believe our time for another wave, another move of God is coming soon. There with be quaking and shaking and re-arranging, as there always is when God moves. The wealth of the nations are Jesus' people who he will redeem with his precious blood. The wealth of the nations is also the money. God is going to shake out the money from places it should not be in.

God's glory will fill the house again too. God's house today is his people.

The Two Disciples and The Two Donkeys

When they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus gave two disciples a task.  He said to them, “Go into the village over there. As soon as you enter, you will find a donkey tied up and a colt with it. Untie them and bring them to me.  If anybody says anything to you, say that the Lord needs it.” He sent them off right away.  Now this happened to fulfill what the prophet said,  Say to Daughter Zion, “Look, your king is coming to you, humble and riding on a donkey, and on a colt the donkey’s offspring.”  The disciples went and did just as Jesus had ordered them.  They brought the donkey and the colt and laid their clothes on them. Then he sat on them.
-Matthew 21:1-7

On what we call Palm Sunday, Jesus rode a donkey into Jerusalem. But, he had two disciples get two donkeys: a mother donkey and her colt. Jesus rode the young male who had never been ridden before. In his carefulness and perhaps kindness towards these two donkeys, he had th…

Teaching vs. Indoctrination

As usual, Paul went to the synagogue, and on three Sabbath days reasoned with them from the Scriptures.
-Acts 17:2

There is a difference between teaching and indoctrination.  Education is not indoctrination.  But some secular and christian education is indoctrination masquerading as education.

If you are a teacher, whether you homeschool your children, teach at the pro level or you teach in your church; it is good to know this difference between indoctrination and true teaching.  Many people are indoctrinated today, rather than taught.

What you might notice, is that when you preach, whether you preach to a crowd or a few, it is easy to be an indoctrinator rather than a true teacher.  True teachers ask people questions and expect them to challenge and debate them.

God's Secret, Hidden People

(The children) of Elam 1,254.  -Ezra 2:7

Do you feel hidden?

The name Elam means secret or hidden.  Do you feel like you are on the shelf, not being used by God?  Maybe you are part of God's secret agents.

God has people who are in secret.

I have this idea that God has His attention on secret people.   I believe that God has rewards for secret people coming.  You may feel on the shelf, but you are actually hidden for a special purpose.  God has you in reserve.

The number one thousand, two-hundred, and fifty-four; tells us God's plan for his hidden, secret, and in reserve children

One thousand speaks of recompense.

Recompense means that you will be compensated or made amends to, due to harm or loss you suffered. In Genesis 20:16 is the story of Abimelech recompensing Abraham and Sarah.

Two speaks of fellowship, partnership, and co-laboring (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12).

There are hidden people who have felt like they are "going it alone", who are about to be joined by someone.  …
