Pastor Phil Derstine 1-14-24


God is Shaking the Nations


  • Joel 3:16 The Lord will roar like a lion from Jerusalem; his loud voice will thunder from that city, and the sky and the earth will shake. But the Lord will be a safe place for his people, a strong place of safety for the people of Israel.”
  • Haggai 2:6-8 “This is what the LORD Almighty says: In a little while I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea, and the dry land.  I will shake all nations, and the desired of all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory, says the LORD Almighty.  (9) The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house, says the LORD Almighty.  And in this place I will grant peace.”  
  • Hebrews 12:26 “Once more I will shake not only the earth, but also the heavens. (27) The words once more indicate the removing of what can be shaken – that is created things – so that what cannot be shaken may remain. (28) Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, (29) for our God is a consuming fire.”
  • Proverbs 28:1 "The righteous are bold as a lion
  • Psalm 34:10 "The young lions do lack and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not lack any good thing."
