The Quake in Haiti
Jan 13, 2010
Seven years ago I was in Port au Prince, Haiti, teaching the Word from Jan. 9-14, 2003. I had been invited by Pastor Prince. I stayed in an orphanage built on the mountain.
Haiti (or Aiti) means "mountain land." In the Bible a mountain represents a nation. We see this in Isaiah 2:2, "the mountain of the house of the Lord will be established as the chief of the mountains." Columbus arrived in Haiti (Hispanola) in 1492, founding the settlement, calling it La Navidad because it was founded on Christmas Day.
Yesterday a 7.0 Richter quake struck Port au Prince, doing a lot of damage and probably killing thousands of people. It looks like we are seeing multiple significant earthquakes now. This one in particular appears to be a sign of the shaking of the kingdoms of this world--that is, the "mountains"--and the "princes" of this world.
This is in accordance with the word spoken in the early morning hours of January 1st, when I read Rev. 11:15, "The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ . . ."
It also connexts to Haggai 2:6, 7 in regard to the shaking of the heavens and the earth. Hebrews 12:26-28 interprets this to mean the shaking of of all that can be shaken, so that only that which is of the Kingdom of God will remain standing.
Haggai's prophecy also connects it to the coming of the glory of God which will fill our temples with a glory greater than that which filled Solomon's temple (Hag. 2:9). This is likened to a new birth, as I showed previously. One might call it La Navidad. It may even have something to do with the shooting star that was filmed just under the moon last Christmas.
At any rate, the signs point to the overthrow of man's kingdoms and the establishment of the Kingdom of God.
