    A Kingdom That Cannot Be Shaken: Grace to Serve

    A Kingdom That Cannot Be Shaken: Grace to Serve

    Hebrews 12:26, Whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.” 27 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. 28 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. 29 For our God is a consuming fire.
    Serving God acceptably is the outcome of things that cannot be shaken. 
    Part of the process of arriving at a place where things cannot be shaken involves removing the things that can be shaken.
    1 Peter 5:10, But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.
    The word “suffer” is defined: To be affected, to undergo; “to permit further" 
    We have all experienced suffering or shaking. I know it because you are still standing in faith today!
    Remember:  Justice = Righteousness. 
    Justice begins with how we relate to God based on the Grace He has provided to us. 
    Justice is God’s order in you
    Righteousness is God’s ability working through you

    Things That CANNOT BE SHAKEN When Things Shake

    Things That CANNOT BE SHAKEN When Things Shake

    Hebrews 12:26, Whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.” 27 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. 28 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. 29 For our God is a consuming fire.
     
    Hebrews chapter 12 presents five topics of context and focus.
     
    The Race of Faith
    The Discipline of God
    Renewal of Spiritual Vitality
    The Glorious Heavenly Company
    Following the Heavenly Voice
     
    We are receiving a Kingdom that cannot be shaken. We are not receiving a membership or an association. We have received A RELATIONSHIP!

    Justice=Righteousness & Righteousness = Justice

    Justice=Righteousness & Righteousness = Justice

    He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)
    Learn to do good; Seek justice, Rebuke the oppressor; Defend the fatherless, Plead for the widow. (Isaiah 1:17) 
    The contexts of the words justice and judgment suggest the following:
    1. One cannot preach righteousness without doing justice.
    2. Justice must be done in the spirit of righteousness.
    3. Authenticity is essential for one’s lifestyle. Live according to Christ and the word of God.
    4. One must take action in helping those who are disadvantaged. 
    5. Resist oppressors by holding persons accountable who would take advantage of others.
    6. Stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves. 
    Justice = Righteousness 
    Righteousness = Justice
    In the Bible the words are sometimes used interchangeably. Psalms 89:14 
    KJV: Justice and judgment are the habitation of thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before thy face.
    NIV: Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne; love and faithfulness go before you
    There are three types of justice
    1. Biblical Justice
    2. Social Justice
    3. Civil Justice

    Victory Over Sin That Hides -"'Forgive Us Our Debts, as We Forgive Our Debtors"

    Victory Over Sin That Hides -"'Forgive Us Our Debts, as We Forgive Our Debtors"

    Matthew 6:12  And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors.
    Followers of Christ do not have a “sin conscience.”When you live for Christ, you are not consumed with fear of doing wrong.
    Hebrews 10:1 For the law, having a shadow of the good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with these same sacrifices, which they offer continually year by year, make those who approach perfect. 2 For then would they not have ceased to be offered? For the worshipers, once purified, would have had no more consciousness of sins.
    Walking with Jesus daily keeps our conscience clear.

    Firm Foundation Bible Study - Topic: All Manner of Prayer

    Firm Foundation Bible Study - Topic: All Manner of Prayer

    “Pray at all times—on every occasion, in every season—in the Spirit, with all [manner of] prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints (God's consecrated people).” Ephesians  6:18 Amplified (Also read  Timothy 2:1-4)
    The Apostle Paul exhorted the Ephesians believers to pray with “all prayers" or "all manner of prayer." Prayer is certainly not a technical issue, so we don't have to fret about how we pray, so long as we are earnestly praying to God.That said, it is helpful to examine and practice all types prayers so that we may  be more focused and motivated to pray. The scriptures show various types of prayers. Below is brief overview of common types of prayer.1. Prayer of supplication. 1 Kings 8: 37-40, 54 - 55, Luke 11: 9 - 13, James 5: 17-18Supplication is a specific request. Theses three scriptures show people were seeking (or asked to seek) for something specific. When you know what is needed, you can offer a prayer of supplication.2. Prayer of intercession. Genesis 18: 22-33 (Abraham) 1 Kings 18: 41-46 (Elijah) 2 Kings 4: 32-36 (Elisha) Acts 12:1-18 (The early church)To intercede means to plead or mediate on behalf of another person. Jesus intercedes for us (Hebrews 7: 25). The Holy Spirit prays for us and through us as we pray in the Spirit (Romans 8: 26 - 27).When we pray earnestly for other people, we enter into the realm of intercession, in which we present people and their needs to God. There is also a dimension to intercession where we "stand in the gap" for people for special blessing or protection. (Eze. 22:30)3. Prayer of faith. Mark 11:12-14, Mark 11:20-25, Luke 7: 1-10, James 5:13-18, Matthew 9:18-26The prayer of faith is a supernaturally confident type of prayer, that is absent of doubt. The woman with the issue of blood (Matthew 9) knew that touching Jesus would get her healed. Her faith gave her the strength to press through the crowd. Strong faith and boldness accompany the prayer of faith. This manner of faith releases special blessings and miracles.4. Prayer of agreement.  Genesis 11:1-9, Matthew 18: 19-20, Exodus 17: 8-13, Psalm 133: 1-3, Acts 4:23, Hebrews 10: 24-25The prayer of agreement occurs when two or a few people come together (the fewer the better), in agreement with one another and with the Word of God on something God wants to do. The prayer of agreement is connected the authority of God has vested in His church. Prayers of agreement can multiply the effects of God blessings beyond what one can do by oneself.5. Prayer of praise, worship and thanksgiving. Psalm 100, Acts 16:16-34, Psalm 149:4-9Praise, worship and thanksgiving can be a form a prayer that brings us into the presence of God. When we praise and thank God, we are affirming our faith in Him. This pleases God and helps our faith. Praise and thanksgiving disarm two of the most deadly enemies to our Christian walk, doubt and fear. No wonder the scriptures call praise a two edged sword (Psalm 149: 4-9)6. Prayer of Dedication. 1 Kings 8:62-64, Mark 14:36, Acts 7:59, 9:6, 13:3, 14:23The prayer of dedication is used to consecrate or dedicate someone or something to God. In the Old Testament, priests, altars, and tabernacles were dedicated by prayer. In the New Testament, Jesus and others dedicated (or ordained) disciples, apostles, elders deacons to the work of God.
