We urge all the brethren to pray hard for Hong Kong. We love our city and we cannot afford our City to be in chaos but in peace and prosperity. Let us pray that Jesus be enthroned in Hong Kong. Because we cannot obtain peace if the Prince of Peace is not there. We cannot obtain love if the God of love is not here.
What is my reflection on this event that is happening around us? God has reminded us, to pray even more, to love even more, to be peaceful even more, but most of all to share Jesus even more. This kind of event has been predicted by the Lord to happen not only in our city but to the rest of the world a long time ago.
The book of Haggai contains several forecasts about the future that God gave to a prophet. Haggai 2:23 dates this book to a certain time period: “in that day.” “In that day” always refers to what Numbers, Deuteronomy, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel and Hosea call “the latter days.” That is a time far beyond when Haggai lived—in fact, it is the time we live in now! You can prove that by putting together what this and other prophecies say and comparing them to what is happening in the world. There will be shaking of the nations.
Notice especially what God says in verse 7: “And I will SHAKE ALL NATIONS ….” This is global. This has never happened before. This is in the end time, and it is happening to all nations, not only in our city.
Why would God shake all nations? He is clearly heavily involved in what is happening, and for a specific reason. He is shaking—but He isn’t wiping out the planet altogether. Why? Because of the end result it will produce. The harvest of soul, the glorification of the Lord, the revival of the people. History will prove that in every revival a shaking happens first. But in the shaking of the nations the Lord will still be in control. Read this, 7 “I will shake all nations, and what is desired by all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory,’ says the LORD Almighty. 8 ‘The silver is mine and the gold is mine,’ declares the LORD Almighty. 9 ‘The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,’ says the LORD Almighty. ‘And in this place I will grant peace,’ declares the LORD Almighty.” Haggai 2:7-9.
So, church, what is the best response we can have in this present situation? I would say again, let us pray even more and share Jesus all the more. Let us continually go and make disciples special this time of uncertainty- this will be our great reward when we get into heaven.
