A kingdom which cannot be shaken

Re: Verse reading–Hebrews 12:25-29; 13:1-9, 20-21 (day one)
“His voice shook the earth then, but now He has promised. . .’Yet once more I will shake not only the earth but the heaven.’ (which) denotes the removing of things which can be shaken. . .in order that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.  Therefore, since we receive a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us show gratitude. . .for our God is a consuming fire.”  (12:26-29)  It was a familiar Bible story.  The day God gave the 10 Commandments, the earth shook. See Exodus 19. It demonstrated the relative stability of the two things.  (Compared to the God’s Law, even the mountains were fragile, unstable)  Something similar will happen at the end of time.  All things will pass away.  God’s Kingdom will remain.  Everything else will shake and collapse. (2 Peter 3:11) It reminds us to be grateful and reverent.  God is the fire that will eventually burn up (consume, make disappear) all that is not completely His.
