The Kingdom that cannot be shaken

21st July 1985 prior to the founding meeting of ICCC Gunnar received a prophecy which spoke of the Kingdom that cannot be shaken. The prophecy told of difficult times and the International Board talked of the walk of faith to rise above the encroaching tide.

Right now the world is experiencing a major pestilence. We shouldn’t be surprised Matthew speaks of pestilences along with earthquakes and famines.  (chapter 24:7)

We don’t know what the outcome of the current pestilence will be, and to what degree it will destabilise the world economy. What we do know is that we belong to the Kingdom that cannot be shaken, so we can be sure of our eternal destiny and we can have peace in the midst of whatever is to come.

In difficult times we may have to dig deep into our spiritual resources. It is all too easy for anxiety and fear to get inroads into our thinking. It is time to renew our minds, to think on the sovereignty of God, on His abundant love and His amazing grace. Our Lord is not surprised and certainly not shaken by what is happening.

It is a time for listening to the Lord – because faith comes by hearing God speak. In these days we need to be sensitive to Him, to every way in which He speaks, and particularly to the still small voice of the Holy Spirit.

Now is a time to be strong in our walk with the Lord, like a tall tree, or a bush bearing fruit. A time to be a shelter for any weaker brethren.  We can do it – as we walk closely with the Lord.

Remember Psalm 23  where David is told that the Lord prepares a table for him in the midst of his enemies.  David knew that he was to receive all the provision he needed in a place of peace as God led him in the paths of righteousness. David knew he may walk through the valley of the shadow of death, yet he would fear no evil. Psalm 23 is a good guide for us as David speaks the truth  - “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not lack…..You anoint my head with oil, my cup runs over.  Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”

Paul advises the Ephesians not to give the devil any place or opportunity (chapter 4:27).  James warns that our tongues can defile the whole body.  Now it is time to be especially careful in what we think and what we say.
