APRIL- LET THE WHOLE EARTH SHAKE

The Lord reigns; let the peoples tremble!

He sits enthroned upon the cherubim; let the earth quake! The Lord is great in Zion; he is exalted over all the peoples.
Let them praise your great and awesome name!

Joshua led Israel over the Jordan and into the land they would soon take. As they arrived, God’s first act was to show Israel that the coming conquest would be His doing, not theirs. The earth shook, the walls of Jericho fell, and Israel was on its way to reclaiming its inheritance.

God is the Conquering God. Nothing can stand in His path and none can stand upright as sinners before Him. We are powerless to move Him. We should reverently tremble before Him. To humble ourselves, lest we be humbled.

It was now about noon, and darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon, for the sun stopped shining.


At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split and the tombs broke open.

Jesus Himself—One who had no cause to be humble; One to whom all authority had been given—refused to stand on His own power and inheritance. He refused to take by force what was rightfully His. Rather, He allowed Himself to be murdered, and in response the very earth quaked before Him.

This month is a call to reverent awe of the Conquering God—the Mighty God of Israel who is strong and able to fulfill all of His promises.
