25See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks. If they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from him who warns us from heaven? 26At 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.”e 27The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken—that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain.28Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, 29for our “God is a consuming fire.”f
‘Consuming the heart of Men’
I wonder who originated Facebook to ask, what on your mind? What is your voice saying. If it can only be heard on Facebook it belongs to Facebook. My hope is that your voice is only an echo of God’s voice. Many people died to give us a voice so say something unshakable, will you?
Hardly for a righteous man would any one die. Let’s pray for leaders who are not so caught up in the things of this world. Then again what choices do they have, God bless em. We would like to think that to give ourselves to Christ means that we would die for Him. That makes no sense because He alone is Christ who died for the sins of the world. No greater love it is that a man dies for his friends. I’m sure that there are a lot of things we are perishing for but which of your friends would you give your life for. You might even be giving your life for a cause but who in that movement would you actually die for like Christ died for you and me! So much hate in the world, my God.
How much longer will the work of Christ last for in this world. Such a great big world you would think it should last for ever.
Ever wonder what in the world the astronauts on the space station might think of us earthlings? I can guess at what they could be thinking first thing when they awake up. ‘Oh good heavens they are still there.’
The last great movement that occurred before Christ was the voice of one in the wildernesses. Then Jesus came who consummated that voice of a God for us to turn from our evil ways. Today anyone with a phone can have their own voice and lord knows we can sound off. Still hardly for the righteous will anyone die because we can only die for ourselves and country. Only that which is on shakable will remain. It’s good to know that we are not alone when we pass on because when Christ is finish with us we will remain unshakable right here where we are. All the love ones will be there.
Aside from John The Baptist the other greatest servant in my mind is a Centurion name Cornelius because like John who was a forerunner and servant of Christ he was a servant to ordinary people. An act of kindness that will always draw the attention of God to an ordinary man. So we can give our lives to whatever we want but no one ever dies for God. That’s a fate for Christ alone, son of the living God. If your god is not living then it’s only a monument of a dead man and whatever he represents. Not that that’s not important but it is a shakable thing in comparison to what is unshakable. The unshakable matters more than the shakable so let’s choose a kingdom that is unshakable. Whatever we see, hear, remember or can imagine is already trembling for what is coming, so don’t be so caught up in the things of this world. Amen
