We are living in a time of great shaking on the earth. We are seeing Hamas continually firing missiles at the nation of Israel, Christians being beheaded, raped, or shot by ISIS in Syria and Iraq, and unrest in our own country. These are only the issues that are getting press right now. There are young women in multiple countries being sold as sex slaves in human trafficking rings. The evil that is on the earth right now seems endless and scary, but let me assure you that God has a plan. The bible says that when the enemy comes in, like a flood, the LORD will raise a standard against him. I know that part of that standard is the church. We are His body: His physical representation on earth. My message to all of you today is that if you know what your assignment is, then go do it. The time for contemplating is over. Now is a time of action. The world needs you. Bring God's glorious Kingdom to earth through the gifts that He has put in you! Today is the day. We aren't promised tomorrow.

Everything that can be shaken will be shaken
See that you do not refuse Him who speaks. For if they did not escape who refused Him who spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from Him who speaks from heaven, whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.” Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. For our God is a consuming fire. (Hebrews 12:25-29 NKJV)
