What is (((((((FAITHQUAKE)))))))?
The name ”FAITHQUAKE” is the ministry “name” of what God has called me, Dr. John Roberts T.H.D., to function and to do while here on the Earth. However, “A” (((((((FAITHQUAKE))))))) is in my humble opinion the result of what God is doing in the Earth now spiritually, exposing what is true, and what is not. It is in my personal belief, that God is shaking everything up! I also believe that He will continue to shake things up until the reality of His revealing where we shall forever ETERNALLY live and be with Him (God) beyond this Earth. It is outside a comprehensive “movement”, and beyond anything that we would like to label like we always want to do? God is beyond our labelling, and greater than our common pattern of usual-isms.
FAITHQUAKE is what God called this time with me several years ago. Today, our world is not following normal patterns, and it refuses to adhere to our “standard life rules”. It happens that God does not live in the safe places only where it is on your terms or conditions. God is outside all of this as much as He is inside everything, too. The Word declares that He is “ALL AND IN ALL”. So what is happening is the result of our seeking to enclose Elohim into the “where we say” He can and cannot go!
FAITHQUAKE is a direct response to the ANTI-GOD activity that we pursue. It is the time when we create a border or wall, daring God to invade or cross over without our permission. It is the outcome of what we seek for ourselves, without giving one inch of a platform for God to have any say in.
A (((((((FAITHQUAKE))))))) is the effect of doing God’s Kingdom our way, making us the premier and focus of all that happens. Although I have expressed in this the name represents the ministry of Dr. John E. Roberts, I will be the first to say it is not my ministry alone, or all by itself. ((((((FAITHQUAKE))))))) is the crumbling of the walls that we erect around The King to somehow have God our way, never considering what He said. We want to suit our fancy to the point that we are even enjoy having our names placed on the church sign?
A ((((((FAITHQUAKE)))))))) takes place in order to escape the ingenuity of humanity. It occurs when what we are doing doesn’t line up to the what God said do. Therefore, God will not or rather cannot be boxed in so He will escape our man-made spiritual traps which are made up of fleshly carnal propaganda, political substantivalism, and egocentric self-glorified kingdoms. When God said, ‘THOU SHALT NOT HAVE ANY OTHER GOD’S BEFORE ME, He was talking as much about our SELF as He was the idols that we make, and especially self-idolatry. How big is God?
During these days where it seems like everything is upside down, I am under the strong conviction that God is at the very heart of these seemingly chaotic things that we are not liking. Could it be that God is just not going to be ruled by any of us? Hebrews declares that,
“…His voice shook the earth then, but now He has promised, saying, “YET ONCE MORE I WILL SHAKE NOT ONLY THE EARTH, BUT ALSO THE HEAVEN.” This expression, “Yet once more,” denotes the removing of those things which can be shaken, as of created things, so that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore, since we receive a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us show gratitude, by which we may offer to God an acceptable service with reverence and awe; for our God is a consuming fire.” Hebrews 12:26-29
The times we live in seem to be going thru what the passage in Hebrews says is a “shaking”. We love the traditions of what we do, how we serve, and when we attend, and where we go, and not to mention how we want to do them. But God says sometimes otherwise. Sometimes, God will set His foot down, and you can rest assured that things will tremble. IF they are things that HE built, then there will be no worry or concern if they will withstand the demand of His weight to bear. The revelation of Jesus the Christ evens reveals shakings that must occur, and they will.
We have seen them before often times. When Martin Luther began his quest for Truth, we saw the shaking being hammered into the wood of the door of the “Church as USUAL”, causing an upset all the way up the chain of Pharisee ministers and leaders. It happened at other times, too. We saw it during the wars of Jerusalem, then and now. We saw it when we read the acts of the apostles, as they journeyed along literally shaking up everything that religion says not to. We can clearly see this when Jesus was upon the cross, and the very ground shook!
What is a (((((((FAITHQUAKE))))))) ???
It is the heart of God thundering in every beat of love right order, and unity with Him! Let me ask it this way in response? What if God took away from us, everything He never told us to do, build, or say? What would remain? Only the very things that He did tell us to say, to do, and to build! Everything else would be shook so bad that it could no longer withstand the REAL HARD FACTS! The cold hard truth as the old adage says, that the tearing down of the very things that is tearing down the very body of Christ!
