THE SHAKING is GROWING 
-by Andrew Strom.

I want to spend most of this article talking about the massive
SPIRITUAL shaking and sea-change that is underway. -And the
OPPORTUNITIES for the true remnant of God in this. But first let 
us talk briefly about the "economic" shaking that is underpinning
a lot of what is happening.

There are many signs appearing that another great "slowdown" in
the world economy is underway. As you know, we have predicted 
"another wave down" and a "double dip depression". Last week
new US unemployment claims jumped back up to 500,000. The 
figures for July 'existing' home sales look to show the worst slump 
that has ever been seen. (California and Texas report a -23% 
collapse in the space of just one month). The human cost of all 
this unemployment and economic mayhem is truly awful to contemplate. 

But in the CHURCH I believe a great "shaking" is underway that
will ultimately bring about a great 'purging' and cleansing. You may
have noticed that a number of big-money ministries are suddenly 
in trouble. I am hearing reports of others that I regard as "spreading
deception" falling into serious financial difficulty as well. I believe
God is going to use this economic crisis to "clean out" His church.
There is going to be a massive change at the top. The 'Saulish'
leadership is going to be dethroned and the "Davids" will come forth.

We published a vision some time ago of the giant "trees" crashing 
to the ground and the little sprouts suddenly springing forth. The
church has been dominated for too long by voices that have abused
and stolen and spread deception amongst the sheep. God is 
coming to clean house, and it will not be "gentle". The whip is in
His hand and He is about to drive the money-changers out.  His
house is to be a "house of prayer" once more.

Two of my books from the past were spent prophesying of this very
time that we are now entering. The first was in 1996 - "The Coming
Great Reformation - New Insights into the Coming Worldwide
Shaking, Reformation and Street Revival." The most recent was in
2008 - "Survive the Depression - The Shaking Has Begun." (Links
for both of these at the end of this article).

A lot of people say to me, "Give up hope of the church being
cleansed or the false leaders being dethroned. We are in the time
of great Apostasy," they say, "So just give up on any of that."

And I say, "NO! I will not give up on the evil being dethroned from
God's church, and the Body being cleansed, and the true gospel
being restored. Yes - we are in a time of great Apostasy (no-one
knows this more than I). But that does not mean that God has 
lost His desire for a church that is "without spot or wrinkle or any
such thing." I still believe we have time for one last great "cleansing"
and one last great Harvest. But it will come during a time of great
"storms" and hardship."

POSITION Yourself

There are several ways that those who believe they have been 
called into God's 'remnant' for this hour can "position" themselves 
to be part of what God is doing. Of course, PRAYER is the most 
vital thing, but also-
(1) Get out of DEBT. Do not "hang on", deep in debt for year after
year, hoping things will improve. They will NOT improve for YEARS.
Use whatever means possible, cut your losses and GET OUT. The
debt alone can prevent you from being where God wants you to be 
in this crucial moment.

(2) Don't get into a "bunker" mentality. Don't be tempted to hide 
yourself away with food and ammo in some basement somewhere. 
For true Christians this crisis is a GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY to 
show forth Christ to a dying world. Get INVOLVED - helping the 
poor, preaching the true gospel. This is not a time for "hiding away".

(3) Stop thinking of this crisis as a "doom and gloom" scenario
and start thinking of it as a time where God is setting things to
rights - purging the church and the nation of years of excesses
and poison. For the Christian who truly loves God and His
kingdom, this is literally the OPPORTUNITY of a LIFETIME to be
involved in this whole process. Only DEBTS or FEAR or an 
unwilling heart can rob you of your place in this.

There is no time I would rather be in than right now. There is no
environment I would rather be in. This moment and this crisis are
exactly what God has been preparing us for. We are not to just
"survive" - we are to 'THRIVE' in this time. Many of the big
ministries are not designed to make it through such a crisis. When
finances drop they will fall apart. But many of us have been 
specifically designed for this. Don't waste it. A total "changing of
the guard" is underway. A revolution in leadership. Be about the 
Lord's work. Remember the long-forgotten promises and dreams 
the Lord gave you years ago and prepare to enter into all that He 
has promised. AMEN!!
