The Great Shaking
Adam F Thompson – Prophet & Author
I have previously described how a revelatory angel stands behind me to bring the revelation of Jesus Christ in the spirit of prophecy. This angel usually comes when I am ministering, but as I was on my way home from a conference in Cairns, Queensland, Australia on 9th March 2020, this angel stepped into the airport lounge and leaned on me from behind to bring a panoramic vision.
I saw a landscape of rich, green pastures and beautiful trees. In the middle of this landscape a floating head, transparent as glass, was suspended. Within the head, were brown brick walls on either side. And then the earth began to shake so violently that the ground cracked open, and trees fell. The head shook, but stayed whole, while the walls on each side shattered and disappeared (walls represent carnal man’s logical thinking which separates him from belief in God).
Then the Lord spoke to me from Hebrews 12:27b: “What can’t be shaken will remain, but what can be shaken will be utterly undone.” What I was seeing in the spirit is the massive shaking that is coming to planet Earth – a shaking such as we have never seen before. The shaking is not to put people of faith into fear, but to remind them that only IN CHRIST will “All things hold together” (Col. 1:17). Outside of Christ, things fall apart.
In this violent shaking that is coming, I saw a multitude of hardened hearts becoming vulnerable and softening in repentance. I saw the ground ploughed up with the urgency of seeking the Lord so that righteousness would reign (Hosea 10:12).
In the vision Holy Spirit reminded me of the prison guard in Acts 16:29-30. I understand that in a prison environment people’s hearts – (guards as well as prisoners) – become hardened in an attempt to cope. But in this passage, the great shaking that shattered Paul and Silas’s chains and broke open the prison doors, also caused the guard to fall to his knees and cry out, “What must I do to be saved!” In this example I understood that in the shaking to come many politicians and atheists who have hardened their hearts against God – and many in the entertainment world who are far from God – will turn to Him. People you would never imagine doing so, will be born again. In the vision I saw, a prominent Eastern State left-wing advocate in USA, repenting before Him. This symbolises the shaking of the Jezebel spirit which opposes God. The violent shaking will bring many surprising repentances in the great harvest to come.
Joel 3:2 says, “I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. And I will enter into judgment with them there, on behalf of my people and my heritage Israel.” Jehoshaphat means “Yahweh judges”, so the Valley of Jehoshaphat is the valley of decision, but the ‘decision’ will be made by God, not the multitude. The nations of Planet Earth are coming into the valley of God’s deciding. This valley of decision is a time of trial but, like the great shaking, it will result in whole nations being receptive to God’s grace and power and the revelation of the Eternal King.
The Lord showed me through this vision that the Church is not ready. He warned me that many saints are unprepared for both the shaking and the harvest. God’s people need to be fully submerged in Him, knowing, and coming into, their identity in Him. God is sounding the roll-call for the new breed that is rising in the spirit of Elijah for the billion-soul harvest. Jesus said, “the harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few” (Matthew 9:37). The tendency in western society is to think that scripture is only half true. It is easy to think that because with the present harvest so small, it doesn’t warrant many workers! But I believe Matthew 9 relates to what is coming in the near future. The harvest is going to be overwhelming, and many Christians won’t know what to do with it. In this coming decade will be a crucial time for the saints to come into maturity for the harvest. For only as mature sons will they be competent to govern the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in Heaven.
