Will there be a shaking within the Church of our Lord Jesus Christ? We will survive the coming turmoil and shaking..We will run and not be weary, walk and not faint! We can rest in His Grace because of what He accomplished at the Cross of Calvary. Sure, we may still mess up; but if we don't give up, God won't give up. Judgment begins at the house of God (1 Peter 4:17) and He will need to allow some things to bring us to dependence on Jesus. Sin was in totality dealt with at Calvary, but He will correct us as with sons (and daughters). 1Pet 4:19 says “Wherefore let them who suffer according to the Will of God commit the keeping of their souls to Him in well doing, as unto a Faithful Creator.”
We see things going on in the news that cause us consternation; I for one get angry to see stuff happening that should be stopped, and most times is stopped, thankfully, only to see it reappear in some other situation or form. I think to myself, “when will we fail to prevent it next time, and with such tenacity, will this thing eventually come to pass anyway?” This is the way of the world, but it it's mainly happening because the Church is for the most part powerless, without the Spirit, or at least not allowing the Holy Spirit latitude to work as He can. Our way of life here in America is only the result of Holy Spirit influence over the history of our nation, and other nations who have come before us that have embraced liberty, in whatever forms there were at the time. It has not been perfect by any means, and it has been a struggle; the Church of Jesus Christ, and by that I mean all who have been saved through the Shed Blood of Jesus at the Cross, must all return to that Cross in repentance and faith. This is where the change occurs. (Is 40:31, Heb 12:5-13,1Pet 4:18)

In Jesus's service
