Shaking the Old Systems
In last week's blog, we discussed the fact that it has been our Creator and Designer's plan all along to replace the present unworkable systems of this world with His Kingdom System. How will this come about?
"The earth was rocked at the sound of his voice from the mountain, but now he has promised, 'Once and for all I will not only shake the systems of the world, but also the unseen powers in the heavenly realm!'” -Hebrews 12:26 TPT
The “old order” consists of:
1) the Systems of this World,
2) the unseen powers that operate in the heavenly realm. This is what He says about those.
The next part of scripture (which is our Constitution containing the values, the principles, and the established precedents that we agree to govern ourselves by) is powerful and this is exciting. Listen to how He continues:
"Now this phrase 'once and for all, clearly indicates the final removal of the things that are shaking, that is, the old order, so only what is unshakable will remain." [How is the “old order” defined and explained above?] "Since we are receiving our rights to an unshakable kingdom, we should be extremely thankful and (we must) offer God the purest worship that delights his heart as we lay down our lives in absolute surrender, filled with awe. For our God is a holy, devouring fire!" -Hebrews 12:27-29 TPT
Here is the blueprint, the pattern. How can we do this? We must begin by developing our Faith to be aligned with and in agreement with our God and with His Word.
In next week's blog, we will discuss what it means to develop our faith.
