Spiritual Earthquakes in the Church, In Our Lives and in the World
What happens when there is an earthquake?
Answer: Things shake and begun falling out of places
(2 Thessalonians 2: 1-3) “1Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;”
Where did the first Falling away take place?
(Isaiah 14:12) “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!”
Answer: The Falling away first took place in heaven
What is a Spiritual Shaking?
(Revelation 12:7-9) “7And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”
Answer: Spiritual war between truth and error, a departure from truths(deceiver), a casting out of holy places
Where did the second Falling away take place?
(Genesis 3:3,6-7) “But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die 6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. 7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.”
Answer: on eath, in the garden of Eden
What Adam and Eve had fallen away from?
(Genesis 2:16) And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
(Genesis 3:17) And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
Answer: He had fallen away from Christ’s love by falling away from the keeping of His commandments, which is His character.
What clothing were Adam and Eve wearing before they were naked?
(Psalm 104: 1-2) “1Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty. 2 Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain:”
(Revelation 12:1) “1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
Answer: They were covered with light
What happened when Adam and Eve fell?
(1 Samuel 4:22) “Fear not; for thou hast born a son. But she answered not, neither did she regard it. 21And she named the child Ichabod, saying, The glory is departed from Israel: because the ark of God was taken, and because of her father in law and her husband. 22And she said, The glory is departed from Israel: for the ark of God is taken.”
(Genesis 3: 22- 24) “22 And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever: 23 Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken 24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.”
Answer: The glorious light departed from them and they were driven out of the Garden. The Ark Contains the ten commandments
What do we see in common with Adam and Eve and Satan and his Angels?
They were all shaken:
- Satan was cast out of heaven with his fallen conditionAdam and Even were driven of Eden with their fallen condition.The beast is originally satan. He is the dragon, that old serpent.When Adam and Even partook of the fruit, there was a falling away from God’s perfect Image(character) into a sinful ImageThey made an Image of the beast (satan) by disobedience to God’s commandments.
God bless and Jesus loves you.
