    When a sleeping child must be awakened, a loving parent takes

    him by the shoulders and gently shakes him. If the child doesn't

    wake up immediately, the shaking becomes a bit firmer. The

    parent insists, because he knows the child will suffer if he doesn't

    wake up on time.

    That is precisely what God is doing right now-both to America

    and to the world. At first, He shook us very tenderly but now His

    shaking has become violent, because He has not succeeded in

    awakening us.

    The Lord began to literally shake the earth with earthquakes in

    the late 1980s. A quake in Armenia wiped out almost that entire

    province. A quake in Japan measuring 6.9 nearly destroyed an

    entire city. Then came the horrible quake in San Francisco, with

    more following almost daily in that area. Quakes hit the West

    Coast constantly, from northern California to San Diego and

    down into Mexico.

    Isaiah prophesies that God will one day rise up and shake the

    whole earth: "Behold, the Lord maketh the earth empty . . . and

    turneth it upside down. . . . All joy is darkened, the mirth of the

    land is gone. . . . When thus it shall be in the midst of the land

    among the people, there shall be as the shaking of an olive tree"

    (Isaiah 24:1, 11, 13). God is going to shake the earth as if it were

    an olive tree-till every bit of fruit falls.

    Ezekiel says that when God's fury arises, He will shake all that

    can be shaken: "All the men that are upon the face of the earth,

    shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown

    down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to

    the ground. . . . And I will be known in the eyes of many nations,

    and they shall know that I am the Lord" (Ezekiel 38:20 and 23).

    The writer of Hebrews says: "Yet once more I shake not the earth

    only, but also heaven. . . . That [only] those things which cannot

    be shaken may remain" (Hebrews 12:26-27).

    God is going to shake everything in sight so that He is revealed

    as the only unshakable power!
