They Will Know I Am The Lord

Christian Author Writer All throughout God's word as I have studied over the years I have noted how He so often says "Then, they will know I am the Lord" ..I have spent considerable time seeking a better understanding of this word from our Father and have a few thoughts from the Lord that came to me in prayer recently. 

As we look around us, both in our own lives and in the world around us, we see "shakings" going on. To gain an understanding of what is happening we can consider God's promise that "I will shake both the heavens and the earth so that what cannot be shaken will remain" . From our house, to the church house to the school house to the White House God is shaking things. We learn that His purpose is to shake out what is not pleasing to Him so that what pleases Him will remain. I will add that His promise is also that Judgment will begin at the house of God, so that means church leaders and their houses are the first to be examined.

2 Peter 3:13  

Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

This brings to mind the promise that "Every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus is Lord" I do realize that the purpose in the shakings is always to wake men up who are asleep to the fear of the Lord. The desire of the Lord's heart is that men would wake up to the truth that the heavens rule. That men would wake up and look at the fruit of their lives and ministries and consider where they are headed. A deeper look into one's own heart often will bring a new attitude of humility and the realization that we are only mere men and there is a higher power we must look to. We are not where we should be!

And that takes me to another promise.."For those who fear His name the Son of righteousness will arise with healing in His wings" We know that God loves the world because He gave His Son for the world. We learn that His purpose is always redemptive, but that repentance and healings will only come by bowing the knee to the reign of His Son Jesus Christ.

As we see these shakings in loved ones and in thrones of authority in the earth, we must learn to run and hide deep in the secret place of prayer. Those who stay in the Shaker will not be shaken, and they are equipped and empowered through faith and humility to bring blood mercies and justice to men who are in the process of being awakened from their slumbers. We who have been shaken and tested and approved are now charged with proclaiming to all the way to escape the things that are surely coming on the earth. By the demonstration of the work of His Holy Spirit in our own lives we will share His good news...."Jesus Is Lord, Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good"

"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you." - Deuteronomy 31:6
