When God writes that there is going to be a shaking, or when a prophet speaks of a shaking as the Prophets and Apostles and Jesus himself also warned, what part of that are people not understanding?

These days are a testing of faith. On a scale of one to ten…where is your faith today at this moment? If you talked to God about this number today…what do you think he would say to you?
If you are without the Lord then there is a reason for your fear and restlessness. If you have found the Lord and received Him, then you will understand this is a testing of your faith in Him. In these days of uncertainty, we can look to the first followers of the way. The shaking that fell upon them was horrific, yet, because of their faithfulness, God showed them through the shaking and His words are with us to this very day because the disciples withstood the testing of their faith to bring to us His word and their own testimonials. Is this to say you will never fear? NO. It is to say, that when you fear, pray to God and fear not. He shall see you through all things according to His purpose. Don’t let things that you have no control over create fear and stress. Take it to the Lord who controls all things and thank Him first for all he has done for you. He already knows what you want and what you need. Sometimes he does say no…and sometimes he says maybe later, let’s see how you do with this small thing first. (Whatever that is.)
John 14:13 – 18 13And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. 15If ye love me, keep my commandments. 16And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 17Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. 18I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
The Lord did not leave us as ophans…he sent His Holy Spirit to reside in each one who accepts Him as their Lord and Savior. If you belived that the Lord has sent you His protector and you believe it is true that greater is He that is in you than he who is in the world… then your faith shall show whether you believe it or disbelieve it. For it is easy to say, I believe in good times, but, when tested in the bad…therein lies the true test of ones faith in the Lord God Almighty.
