Haiti Shakes In Labor

While we struggle to say something positive about Haiti, that is beyond
“except for the grace of God there we go”, when we combine Romans 8:
22 with Hebrews 12:26-29, we do have the positive statement HAITI
SHAKES IN LABOR, coming from the revealed Word of God both the
analogy of “shaking” in Hebrews 12:26-29 with the analogy of  the travail
required when a woman gives birth to new life.  Goodness, there is so
much more that we would like to know about the “future history” of the
end of the “late great planet earth”, and the fate of all world citizens after
the end which puts us in the same boat with the people of Haiti; that it
would be a shame not to utilize the “future history” that God has given us
in the Revealed Word of God.
Confusing what has happened to the people of Haiti with what happened
to the earth in Haiti, even as citizens of this same earth we tend to lose
perspective on the human pain and suffering of the people with the
inevitable disintegration of this old earth which must happen before God
ushers in the new earth.  (See
"New Heavens and New Earth".)  Citizens
of the earth under the United States have varying degrees of personal
identification with the citizens on this same earth in Haiti, Haitians of
course having the most and then there follows a decreasing level among
Americans and other world citizens of rapport and sympathy.

3-1:  The Final “Great Noise in the Heavens” and The Earth Itself
Melting.

For example, it is cold hard truth, but true, that the same thing is going to
happen to the earth under our feet--in fact also the heavens above our
head--that has happened to the people living on the earth at Haiti.  It is
only a matter of time until this limited--limited when you consider the size
of Haiti and the small population of world citizens in Haiti as compared to
the whole earth and all the people on it--shaking in travail of Haiti
naturally, inevitably, and under automatic control as the whole creation in
heaven and earth groans, shakes harder and harder until, to use some of
the words of the Apostle Peter in II Peter 3:10-13, there is a final “great
noise” in the heavens and a final great melting of the very elements of
this earth.

“But the day of the Lord {for more on what the Bible teaches on the
Day of the LORD and Lord, see the page by that name, also the
Sound 3-6 chapter in
SOME SOUNDS OF SOUND FAITH} will come
as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a
great nose, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the
earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.”  (II Peter 3:10)

1.  Just like the earthquake in Haiti, in spite of the scientific awareness
that they sit on a fault of a major shifting and shaking fault, came as a
thief in the night, we should become also as world citizens on this same
earth aware that the final DAY of the Lord” will come as a thief in the night.
2.  That is a lot of shaking and travail, even pangs in birth, as “the
heavens will pass away with a great noise” and “the elements {can you
think on anything under the earth, on the earth, and above the earth that is
not an element of the Periodic Table} will melt with fervent heat”.
3.  This DAY OF THE LORD is definitely terminal for this present
universe:  “both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.”

3-2:  Scriptures of “Shaking” and “Travail in Labor”, Hebrews and
Romans.

Although these two Bible references, Hebrews 12:26-29 and Romans 8:
22 by no means exhaust the revealed Word of God on the subject of the
“future history” of this final DAY OF THE LORD, they certainly help us put
Haiti in perspective of what is going to happen to all of us in future time.
1.  The Shaking of the whole Universe.
(Hebrews 12:26-19)
2.  The Travail in Labor of the whole Universe in order to usher in the new
heavens and the new earth.
(Romans 8:22)

3-3:  We Should Take Haiti Personal, In Perspective of the Day of the
LORD.

The nice thing about the Word of God in II Peter, in Hebrews 12, and in
Romans 8 is that it, from God’s own words revealed to the Prophets and
Apostles, does tell us exactly how to take it personally.  As Christians we
should never be a novice on pain and suffering in the world sent by God
is we believe the Bible, as we must, about:  (1) the destruction of the
whole earth by a great flood because God was grieved by the
wickedness of the human race; (2) God’s decision to shorten the life of
man {perhaps by way of the big C of Cancer} because of the wickedness
of the citizens on planet earth; (3) God’s destruction of the cities of
Sodom and Gomorrah because not one righteous person could be found
in them; and (4) God’s guarantee that most of the citizens of planet earth
will suffer eternal punishment after the Day of the LORD, as well as the
remaining citizens on earth before that Day suffering through the great
noise, shaking, and melting of the elements including all that they have
worked so hard to possess.

NOTE:  This are cold, hard facts of “future history” as revealed in
the Word of God, and you might as well get used to it before that
DAY.  They are as much the plan of God as the original Creation of
the old heavens and earth, the creation of man and all the beauty
that man has come to enjoy on this earth.  However, you must keep
them in the perspective of future history with (1) the eternal kingdom
of Christ for which every generation God selects approximately
7,000 citizens and which, though established 2000 years ago by
Christ during His life on earth, continues to be received in all its
fullness with a location on the new earth, that receiving of the new
kingdom that Paul assures Christians with in Hebrews 12:25-29
immediately after the reminder of the “future history” of final shaking
and travail. {See
Sound Doctrines of the Second Coming.}

3-4:  “Future History”.

Scientists tell us in areas where they do know something that if you were
standing on the right point in the universe, say a distant star or planet,
right now you could see the Civil War on past history; and so on traveling
through the universe, pausing to take a view from thousands of other
locations in space, you see all of the past history of planet earth.  Well,
using some of the “vain imaginations” of God’s people and raggings of
the heathens of Psalm 2:1,2, even the ways of governments. we might
imagine a negative distant location with respect to earth where you might
view future history.  Way out, of course; but there is such a location in the
mind and heart of God where He views future events as history just like
past history.  And He has been kind and gracious enough to record it in
the Bible if we will only humbly and earnestly search it through.
You might summarize the plan and purpose of God for this universe as:  
God is creating a new earth for the new kingdom of selective world
citizens that He established under Christ almost two thousand years ago.  
And certainly if you are going to take on such august subjects as good
and evil, the works of a loving God, sin and suffering in the world; you
must likewise throw a little light on your puny opinions of man’s very
limited wisdom and philosophy, to determine from the Bible what God is
at work right now doing in this universe and for this universe, under Christ.

3-5:  Day of the Lord Summarizes Much of End Time “Future
History”.

We struggle to find some words of phrases to describe all that happens
at the end of this old earth, but long ago the revealed Word of God
through chosen Prophets and Apostles, also by the way with teachings
from Jesus, provided us with the phrase to summarize it, THE DAY OF
THE LORD.
You don’t have to wait for completion of this work to look up “Day of the
LORD and Lord” in your Bibles.  Just use any good concordance like
Young’s or Strong’s.  
{Also on the biblecombibleman.com website of
SunGrist_Bible, you will find many teachings and messages, also
Bible commentaries about eschatology, the study of end time or
future history.  Go to any of the index pages, present and past.}

3-6:  Completion of “Haiti Shakes in Labor” from Bible on www.
biblecombibleman.com .

Granted this is a complicated subject which requires far more than the
flippant answers or answers of those who are getting paid to daily
express opinions, or to collect the equally flippant opinions of fellow world
citizens, so that this work started on this blog will be completed at listed
on the web page below, also included in the second and third listing below
of Bible Studies presently in work on Jeremiah and the Kingdom.
1.  “Haiti Shakes in Labor", this webpage as part of Jeremiah and The
Kingdom Bible Studies.
2.  
Bible Studies in Jeremiah and Prophesy.
3.  The Kingdom of God and Christ.

NOTE:  Please in your Bible Study do not confuse this (1) automatic
groaning of the whole creation to usher in the new kingdom and
new earth, as it groans through earthquakes, volcanoes, sunammis,
and other so-called acts of nature and of God with (2) short termed
calamities sent on God's people to get their attention in favor of
righteousness.
Listen to the good news of the many acts of the grace of God where
children, men, and women for days under rubble are alive; and
always remember that it is by the very grace of God, and patience of
God, that this was not the great earthquake that terminates this old
earth.
