Therefore, receiving a Kingdom that can’t be shaken, let us have grace, through which we serve God acceptably, with reverence and awe,
Promise #303: I am giving you a kingdom that can never be shaken.
Even the most rock solid mountains on this planet can be shaken. The highest mountain can crumble at the blast of our Father's nostrils. Wars, rumors of wars, economic recessions, global strife, and many other things can cause even the strongest of men to tremble. Such is the kingdom of this world. It is here today and gone tomorrow.
But the author of Hebrews is speaking of another kingdom that cannot be moved. This kingdom is part of our inheritance. It is a kingdom that cannot be shaken. It is a kingdom that is safe and secure and beyond the influence of fallen men. It is a kingdom where the greatest will be the servant of all and its citizens, little children.
We are receiving a kingdom right now that cannot be shaken. Jesus taught us to pray in the Lord's prayer (Matthew 6:9-11) ...your kingdom come, your will be done as it is in heaven. May we never take this kingdom lightly. May the fear of the Lord fill us with an ever increasing awareness of this unshakeable kingdom that we are receiving right NOW!
May we be reminded of who we are and who we belong to as we read this Scripture passage that just precedes today's promise in Hebrews 12:22-23(a)... But you have come to Mount Zion, to the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living God. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, 23to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. (NIV) Photo by Martin Smith
