hearts failing them for fear, and for lookingafter those things which are coming onthe earth: for the powers of heavenwill be shaken.
Luke 21:25-26In speaking this Word, we believe our Messiah
was elaborating on, and furtherexplaining, a prophecy given by Chaggai(Haggai):
6 For thus says
of hosts: Yet once, it is alittle while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land. 7 And I will shake all nations, and the desire of allnations will come; and I will fill this Housewith splendor, says
Haggai 2:6-7A shaking sea most certainly connotesfearsome and devastating tsunamis, and thus,
spoke of “the roaring of the sea and thewaves.”
prophecy tells us it isat the time of this great shaking that
will,once more, exalt Yerushalayim
above all thenations,
and His chasidim
will “possess theKingdom,”
as the Spirit of
fills theearth with 1000 years of peace and joy.
Butbefore that time of unprecedented peace,
will arise to “shake mightily the earth:”
Hewill destroy all those nations that devour Hispeople Yisrael;
He will destroy all the sinfulkingdoms of this age:
Behold, the eyes of the Sovereign
are upon the sinful kingdom, and I will
In doing this,
also connected Psalm 46:2-3with Haggai 2:6. Other psalms, too, talk of how the seawill roar before the Presence of
at His coming!(See Psalm 96:11-13, 98:7-9 along with the study, “
Whydo the Seas Roar, the Earth Quakes, the MountainsSmoke, and the Heavens Shake
Haggai 2:7, Isaiah 2:2-4
(i.e. those who are recipients of and ambassadors of His lovingkindess/chesed, 1John 4:10-11)

Psalm 79:6-7, Jeremiah 10:25
destroy it from off the face of the earth: onlythat I will not utterly destroy the houseof Ya’acob, says
Amos 9:8It is also quite edifying when we realize thewriter of

This first century believer knew thatthe monumental event under considerationwould result in everything on earth being
. We know this is the casebecause, later in his letter, the prophet wroteabout these immense cataclysms, and hequoted nothing less than the very sameprophecy given to Haggai (2:6) during Sukkot,the Feast of Tabernacles:
25 See that you refuse not Him that speaks.For if they escaped not who refused Him that spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape, if we turn away from Him that is fromheaven: 26 Whose voice then shook the earth:but now He has promised, saying, “
Yet once more, I shake not the earth only, but also heaven
27 And this word, “Yet oncemore,” signifies the removing of those thingsthat are shaken, as of things that are made,that those things which cannot be shaken mayremain. 28 Therefore, we, receiving aKingdom which cannot be moved, let us have favor, by which we may serve
acceptably,with reverence and awe. 29 For our Elohim isa consuming fire.
Hebrews 12:25-29In quoting the prophet Haggai, this Messianicwriter indicated
will shake everythingthat can be shaken. Such widespread shakingcan be considered nothing less than
Haggai 2:1, Leviticus 23:33-43. Sukkot, or the Feastof Tabernacles extends from the 15
to the 22
day of the Seventh month. The prophecy being studied camein the Spirit to Chaggai (whose name means, “MyFestival”) on the 21
day of the Seventh month. Haggai2:1 The 21
day of the Seventh month is the seventhday of the Feast.
