Text: Hebrews 12:26-29
“Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: For our God is a consuming fire.”
Introduction: Have you ever been SHAKEN up? How about lately? Has your world been turned UPSIDE DOWN? Between the invisible enemy – the Coronavirus, the plague, and being frightened and tormented by TORNADOES, it seems like everything around us is FALLING apart. But is it? According to the Word of God, there are some THINGS that CANNOT be SHAKEN! That’s why we need to BUILD our lives upon the UNSHAKEABLE:
1. God’s going to allow this WORLD to be SHAKEN (v. 26-27)!
“Whose voice SHOOK the earth… I SHAKE the earth only but the heavens.”
  • “Shake” – saleuo – means to agitate as to make INSECURE. Can you relate?
  • Palm trees sink their roots deeper in the ground because of storms.
2. While the things of this WORLD may be SHAKEN, GOD’S KINGDOM {to come} is UNSHAKEABLE (v. 27-28)!
“Removing those things that are SHAKEN… that those things which cannot be SHAKEN may remain.”
  • Stocks and bonds, jobs, houses and land, and even health can be SHAKEN!
  • God’s Word is unmovable!
  • Voltaire, the French infidel tried to SHAKE God’s Word, but he died and the Word of God lives on!
“It’s like a Timex watch… it takes a licking, but it keeps on ticking!”
3. So what should we do in the light of things being SHAKEN and things which are UNSHAKEABLE?
“We are receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved… let us have GRACE, whereby we may SERVE GOD acceptably with reverence and Godly fear.”
Conclusion: Where are you being SHAKEN? Need security? Why not right now, start BUILDING or REBUILDING your life on our UNSHAKEABLE GOD who has fulfilled His Word in the past, is fulfilling it in the present, and will fulfill it in the future.
Love y’all,
