At that time His voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, 'Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.' The words 'once more' indicate the removing of what can be shaken - that is created things - so that what cannot be shaken may remain.
Is there a shaking going on in your life? In my prayer time I have been impressed that the Lord is showing us that He is shaking our relationships and alliances with others. These relationships are being tested, in order to see if they are built on the solid Rock of Messiah, or on fleshly gain and desires. Some of us entered into alliances for the sake of convenience - without inquiring of the Lord as to whether it was HIS will or not. Some are clinging to relationships or friendships that continually drag them into the world or into false beliefs, and despite their best intentions, they start ignoring God and the time they used to spend with Him in favor of people who do not even know Him or care.
But He is even now beginning to shake those alliances so that what is NOT of Him will fade away from our lives, and what IS of Him - withstanding the test and holding fast - will remain.
The shaking may get painful, disappointing, difficult. The Father says, "TRUST THE PROCESS." It is for your good and will draw you closer to Me."
