if the foundations are destroyed,
what can the righteous do?” (Psalm 11:3 ESV)
See that you do not refuse him who is speaking. For if they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, much less will we escape if we reject him who warns from heaven. At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Yet once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.” This phrase, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of things that are shaken—that is, things that have been made—in order that the things that cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire. (Hebrews 12:25-29 ESV)
The only sure foundation we have in this world is Jesus Christ. He has been tested in every way and has been found faithful. Jesus made a New Covenant with those who would believe in him, and we are being built together into the spiritual temple of God. Jesus is the cornerstone of his temple, and the sure foundation. In response to the chaos all around us, many Christians in our day are crying out in desperation as King David did in Ps. 11:3.
Those who are in Christ can find hope in the mist of despair. While the world lives in a state of panic and instability, we as followers of Jesus have hope in the return of our King, to set up his eternal Kingdom of peace on the earth. And while we wait on Christ’ return, we should seek to establish justice and peace on the earth now.
All disciples of Jesus have access to the Kingdom of Heaven in this present age. As we observe the very foundations of western culture and the Church being shaken, we must respond with prayer and counter – cultural Kingdom living. Since marriage is being redefined and morals are on the decline, we must fight this spiritual battle in the spiritual realm. Our moral foundation in the west has been eroding for decades. But instead of retreating or denying our present state of apostasy, we must stand strong for the truth of the gospel.
God is shaking our society and his Church. Anarchy seems to be prevailing. but those that have a good foundation built on truth will stand during these times. Everything that can be shaken will be shaken, but God’s Kingdom will stand forever.
