Today The Foundations Shake


It always amazes me how inspiration works. In the morning, I had seen a simple Gandhi quote in a mass email I was sent. This quote lit a fire in me and quickly I began to share the essay this quote seemed to have conceived. The end result is a fascinating, eye opening, and life changing essay that will, as the title boasts, shake the very foundation of everything you may believe to be true, while also setting the captives of this world system free.

Here is the quote…

My ambition is no less than to convert the British people through nonviolence, and thus make them see the wrong they have done to India.”

“With this salt I am shaking the foundation of the [British] Empire!”

You see Gandhi was a foundation shaker. He was a world changer, and so are you. This essay is meant to remind us of this fact. So let us begin, shall we?

“Today, I shake the foundations of the nations,” these are the words that Gandhi, and I, on this day do say.

So, what do these words mean? What did Gandhi mean when he said many years ago in history, that “today I shake the very foundations of the British Empire?”

Well, what he meant was, the foundation that the British Empire was built upon, was not sound. It was not solid because it was not built on truth or love but lies. Gandhi knew he could shake any foundation built on violence with non-violence.

Gandhi knew that love was the axe that was raised for the root of lies in the world. Love was the very thing that would shake the treacherous nation out of its hellish ignorance, releasing his people from its oppressive control.

Gandhi knew that the foundation the corrupt British Empire was built on was as earth that lays on a fault line.

Love would be the earthquake that would bring all of man’s wicked ways down.

Love IS the great earthquake that shakes the shackles of the world away and sets the captives free!

And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed. (Acts 16:26 KJV)

Let’s consider for a moment what a “foundation” is.

Webster defines a foundation as, “an underlying basis or principle for something.”

The foundation of anything is the very first thing put down, which then is build upon. The foundation is key because it is support of everything else. If the foundation is not sound it will not stand for long.

In scripture a solid, GOOD foundation is one that is built on God, which is love and truth and spirit (thought).

Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life. (1 Timothy 6:19 KJV)

This foundation of God and Christ is the truth of everything. And only upon this foundation will things continue to stand. Anything that is not built on the foundation of love, truth, spirit (right thinking) will perish and be destroyed.

A poor foundation of lies is easily shaken with WORDS of TRUTH and LIFE. Gandhi knew this. Which is why he showed the world with salt the error of the British Empire.

We know that whatever is bound in heaven is bound in earth, loosed in heaven is loosed in earth, as within so without, as above so below… So, while a poor foundation in literal terms means collapse of what stands above it eventually, so in spiritual terms any foundation that is not built with love and truth, as stated earlier, will not stand for long.

So, if there is no truth, if there is no love, hope, faith, peace or joy, then there is no true foundation for the kingdom of heaven to be built upon. And of there is not true foundation then what is built upon it is corrupt and abominable in every way.

Why do you think the beast of revelation ascends (rises) out of the BOTTOMLESS PIT… A bottomless pit has no foundation.

Can you see this? Can you see that a LIE has no foundation? And if there is nothing to hold this lie up, when the wind of truth comes it will be blown away.

This LIE is the beast/animal nature/carnal man that ascends out of this bottomless pit of lies and indoctrination.

This beast, this carnal system that arose out of the lies and corruption of this world, religion and politics, etc… will be destroyed when the TRUTH is spoken.

This bottomless pit of deceptive beliefs has no leg to stand on, so love will always make it fall.

Our carnal nature, our ID, our ignorant beliefs about ourselves arose out of this bottomless pit. Our fears, hang ups, shame, regrets, doubts, worries, anxieties, all came from nothing and to nothing they will return when the truth is shouted from the rooftops.

Our illusion has become our enemy and it was formed out of the lies/dust of the earth and every name/nature not written in the book of truth (which is our foundation) will be destroyed! Just as Gandhi knew the foundations of the corrupt British empire would be destroyed.

The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. (Revelation 17:8 KJV)

So we see the foundation upon which OUR LIVES are built is very important. Because if it is built on lies our house will fall as if built on sand.

But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great. (Luke 6:49 KJV)

This is why Jesus said that a house built on sand will not last. A house must be built on a solid foundation. Because if the foundation of that building is not solid. If the foundation of that building is not pure, if it is weak. If it is not built on truth but lies, then it will be easily shaken and broken down.

This is the way of the world today my friends.

Babylon, that harlot city, that allegorical place in scripture that literally means, “confusion with mixture”, is the system that we can now say, IS FALLEN, IS FALLEN!

Babylon is a place built on the foundational lies of the carnal ego of man

And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. (Revelation 18:2 KJV)

There is no truth in this place. This world has become the habitation of devils/liars, and the hold of every foul spirit (foolish thought), and the birds/messengers are unclean and hateful!

CAN YOU SEE that this Babylon has been the dwelling place of you and me?

We have been under the rule of it. We were born into it. We, like Jesus took upon the sins/lies/cares of this world and died to who we were.

We, like Jesus have been sent to this hell to deliver the captives here free. So it is time for us to do some shaking!

Like Gandhi, our native and God given land (eden) was stolen from us, with deceit and violence and the violent have taken this kingdom by force… UNTIL NOW!

And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force. (Matthew 11:12 KJV)

This corrupt system has sowed lies/tares into the hearts of all men.
Corrupt, ignorant men then indoctrinated generations with these same lies, which is why they say, “education is the foundation upon which knowledge is built”. But what happens when the education that is forced on all is controlled by wicked men? What happens when the tragedies and horrors of history are rewritten to keep future generations enslaved by greed, lust, and poverty? Well, the foundation cannot stand for long.
Gandhi knew this, as do I.

And with each day the indoctrination continues. Dumbing down the kings and queens of heaven until they act and live like comatose slaves!

Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; (Galatians 4:1 KJV)

So when Gandhi saw his brothers and sisters in bondage, abused, used, beaten, taxed, and worse, he knew he could bring it all down with faith, with love and with truth! Just as we can change our lives from miserable bondage to a life of liberty and peace. All it takes is faith, love, and truth!

You see the foundation the British Empire was built on was not pure or and righteous in Gandhi eyes. Gandhi saw an empire built on terror, pride, greed, war, blood, and lies. Gandhi knew that this foundation could not stand, because it was not built on love and truth.

They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course. (Psalms 82:5 KJV)

Gandhi knew that it wasn’t a clenched first that would topple a corrupt nation, he knew only words of love could do this. As a skilled lawyer of the world, Gandhi knew of the power of words. He knew the principle of reaping and sowing, he believed in Karmic law more than a majority of creation.

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. (Galatians 6:7 KJV)

He knew that if you plant hate you only get hate in return. And since the foundation of the corrupt British empire was built on hate, lies, terror, and greed… he knew only love could change this.

Other great men shared this philosophy, which is why Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s name will also continue long after he died.

So Gandhi sowed Love, Acceptance, Tolerance, and Justice, on such a scale that everyone on this planet will forever remember his name.

Gandhi, knew, as Jesus knew, as many other spiritual shepherds have known, and that is that the keys to paradise are sacrifice and love.

Those whose eyes have been opened from the slumber of ignorance know that words have power and that light defeats darkness, humility defeats pride, love defeats hate, and all one needs to do to rebuild an empire is to speak it into existence with love and truth!

Gandhi knew that whatever a man believed he would receive, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses a new kingdom could be established.

In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established. (2 Corinthians 13:1 KJV)


Look at what men of faith have been able to do throughout history. Look at what faith has done, it has toppled oppressive regimes, it has overcome persecution, it has built technology the likes of the gods, it has cured the ills of the world, it has fed the hungry, sheltered the homeless and more.

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report. Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. (Hebrews 11:1-3 KJV)

Did you catch that? Through FAITH we understand that the WORLDS were created by the WORD of God… And WE are the WORD of God! We are LIVING EPISTLES, our lives are our ministry and the WISE understand that an IDEA, which is not seen, creates everything that is.

Imagination is the key to creation, coupled with the truth of who you are and love.

Gandhi understood what I understand, what I hope this article will help you to understand and that is….


Gandhi knew that faith in action is the key to creation. This is why when he said, “with this salt I shake the foundations of the British Empire”, he knew his WORDS and ACTIONS were the very SWORD that would slay the evil beast hiding within every wicked man.

Gandhi knew his words/sword of love were seeds that would not return void.

We know that the power or life and death is in the tongue. That the tongue is small but like the rudder of a ship steers our lives in the direction we speak.

We also know that only words of TRUTH will stand the test of time and that LIES are for but a moment.

The lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a lying tongue is but for a moment. (Proverbs 12:19 KJV)

The words/sword we speak can both give life and take it. The words/sword that we speak can be blessing on our lives and future generations or a curse. The words/sword that we speak cut both ways.

And WORDS of TRUTH are what will shake the foundations of the nations built on lies. Which is why now, more than ever, this message must be heard.

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12 KJV)

You see words can be used to do all things both evil and good. This sword can indeed cut both ways. Your faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the WORDS spoken to you.

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (Romans 10:17 KJV)

And if you believe the wrongs words, if you believe lies that are spoken over you in your life you then have faith these things are true and you are possessed by these lies and they become your reality. This however, would not be a pure and solid foundation! And it can be torn down and rebuilt if instead of believing these lies YOU REPENT (change your words and thoughts).

For example, if you believe you will never get ahead, you won’t. And just as your belief can make this so, if you believe you can turn it all around you will.

If you believe you will topple a corrupt empire like Gandhi did, YOU WILL!

The scriptures teach us with faith NOTHING SHALL BE IMPOSSIBLE TO YOU!

Now, let that sink in for a moment.

What if this is true? If it is, it must mean that everything is the way it is in the world because NO ONE HAS DECIDED TO CHANGE IT…

Isn’t it time to change things? Isn’t it time to shake the foundations of the nations and wake the world back up?

Gandhi was one man and look what he accomplished with faith and compassion? Could you imagine what would happen if there were more men like Gandhi today? Could you imagine what together they would accomplish?

Well, there are. And greater things than these we shall do with faith!

    Before using Gandhi’s quotes for Biblical articles and articles on Jesus Christ, first research and find out what Gandhi thought of Jesus Christ. Gandhi never believed that Jesus Christ is the only Begotten Son of God and the only Way to Heaven. A number of Christians today blindly quote MK Gandhi without examining his teachings. This is dangerous since, Gandhi has never been a friend to Christianity. Christians who claim allegiance to Jesus Christ as God and Saviour should not seek inspiration from one who denies Jesus as the only Begotten Son of God.

    Gandhi said, “I cannot accept the view that Jesus and Jesus alone was the Son of God. But I must put up with my Christian friends who believe that only Jesus and no other was the Son of God ; in the same way Mussalmans and Christians should not feel angry at my prostrations before Kanyakumari or Jagannath”. – – Day to day with Gandhi – Volume VI. “How can you, bearers of the message of Jesus, serve India?” Day to day with Gandhi – Volume VII.

    In an essay titled ‘What Jesus Means to Me’, Gandhi writes the following:

    “‘I do not accept Christ in the bottom of my heart as the only Son of God,’ it is impossible for me to understand the profound significance of his teachings, or to know and interpret the greatest source of spiritual strength that man has ever known. I regard Jesus as a great teacher of humanity, but I do not regard Him as the only begotten son of God.That epithet in its material interpretation is quite unacceptable. Metaphorically we are all begotten sons of God, but for each of us there may be different begotten sons of God in a special sense. Thus for me Chaitanya may be the only begotten son of God. I believe in the perfectibility of human nature.
    “Jesus came as near to perfection as possible. To say that he was perfect is to deny God’s superiority to man. And then in this matter I have a theory of my own. Being necessarily limited by the bonds of flesh, we can attain perfection only after dissolution of the body. Therefore God alone is absolutely perfect. When He descends to earth, He of His own accord limits Himself. Jesus died on the Cross because he was limited by the flesh. I do not need either the prophesies or the miracles to establishJesus’ greatness as a teacher. Nothing can be more miraculous than the three years of his ministry. There is no miracle in the story of the multitude being fed on a handful of loaves. A magician can create that illusion. But woe worth the day on which a magician would be hailed as the saviour of humanity”.
    “As for Jesus raising the dead to life, well I doubt if the men he raised were really dead…. I do not deny that Jesus had certain psychic powers and he was undoubtedly filled with the love of humanity. But he brought to life not people who were dead but who were believed to be dead. The laws of Nature are changeless, unchangeable, and there are no miracles in the sense of infringement or interruption of Nature’s laws.
    “Would you not say that Jesus was the most divine? No, for the simple reason that we have no data. Historically we have more data about Mahomed than anyone else because he was more recent in time. For Jesus there is less data and still less for Buddha, Rama and Krishna; and when we know so little about them, is it not preposterous to say that one of them was more divine than another? In fact even if there were a great deal of data available, no j’udge should shoulder the burden of sifting all the evidence, if only for this reason that it requires a highly spiritual person to gauge the degree of divinity of the subjects he examines. To say that Jesus was 99 per cent divine, and Mahomed 50 per cent, and Krishna 10 per cent, is to arrogate to oneself a function which really does not belong to man”.

    “I therefore do not take as literally true the text that Jesus is the only begotten son of God. God cannot be the exclusive Father and I cannot ascribe exclusive divinity to Jesus. He is as divine as Krishna or Rama or Mahomed or Zoroaster. Similarly I do not regard every word of the Bible as the inspired word of God even as I do not regard every word of the Vedas or the Koran as inspired. The sum-total of these books is certainly inspired, but I miss that inspiration in many of the things taken individually. The Bible is as much a book of religion with me as the Gita and the Koran”.

    “The love that Jesus taught and practised was not a mere personal virtue, but it was essentially a social and collective virtue. Buddhism ‘taught and practised the same thing six hundred years before Jesus.

    Do you definitely feel the presence of the living Christ within you? If it is the historical Jesus surnamed Christ that you refer to, I must say I do not. If it is an adjective signifying one of the names of God, then I must say I do feel, the presence of God—call Him Christ, call Him Krishna, call Him Rama. We have one thousand names to denote God, and if I did not feel the presence of God within me, I see so much of misery and disappointment every day that I would be a raving maniac and my destination would be the Hooghli.
    What, then, does Jesus mean to me? To me, he was one of the greatest teachers humanity has ever had. To his believers, he was God’s only begotten Son.”
    It was more than I could believe that Jesus was the only incarnate son of God, and that only he who believed in Him would have everlasting life. If God could have sons, all of us were His sons. If Jesus was like God, or God Himself, then all men were like God and could be God Himself. My reason was not ready to believe literally that Jesus by his death and by his blood redeemed the sins of the world. Metaphorically there might be some truth in it. Again, according to Christianity only human beings had souls, and not other living beings, for whom death meant complete extinction; while I held a contrary belief. I could accept Jesus as a martyr, an embodiment of sacrifice, and a divine teacher, but not as the most perfect man ever born.
    “His death on the Cross was a great example to the world, but that there was anything like a mysterious or miraculous virtue in it, my heart could not accept. The pious lives of Christians did not give me anything that the lives of men of other faiths had failed to give. I had seen in other lives just the same reformation that I had heard of among Christians. Philosophically there was nothing extraordinary in Christian principles. From the point of view of sacrifice, it seemed to me that the Hindus greatly surpassed the Christians. It was impossible for me to regard Christianity as a perfect religion or the greatest of all religions”. – An Autobiography, pp. 98-99, Edn. 1958. What Jesus Means To Me. By : M. K. Gandhi. Compiled by : R. K. Prabhu First published : September 1959.

      Brother if you read the article, you will see this comment was not necessary. This had nothing to do with whether or not Gandhi believes in Jesus

      • smithyjohn March 20, 2017 / 12:01 PM

        Still u r using Gandhi’s example, a man who denies Jesus, for making a Biblical point. I’m frm India & i know that Gandhi is over rated. His image is blown out of proportion for propaganda.

  2. Lena Wickey April 13, 2014 / 7:21 AM

    Thank you Jacob…    How I love this stuff …I just is so good!! Lena

  3. tigerkey62 April 11, 2014 / 9:30 AM

    Another good read and truth on what can be. Thank you for shining the Light on this Jacob.

    • Jacob Israel April 11, 2014 / 3:12 PM

      Thank you so much my friend! I so enjoy any encouragement as there are also many who love to tear down what they don’t understand. Peace Jacob

  4. Michelle Riccardi April 10, 2014 / 8:33 AM

    Well, I guess it is obvious that God opened your eyes 🙂 And my foundation is definitely being shaken! 🙂

    • Jacob Israel April 11, 2014 / 3:21 PM

      That is great Michelle, it does sound like you are in a harvest time indeed!

  5. Michelle Riccardi April 9, 2014 / 11:47 PM

    Jacob, I am not quite sure how I have ended up in Nehemiah 3, well actually I feel like I got lead there 🙂 but anyway I started looking up the meanings of all the names and its as if it creates a whole different story! Same with the Book of Daniel. Have you written any essays on these books? Ok this really unbelievable and it really is kind of crazy, is this what you experienced? How did you figure out that everything was a symbol or that the meanings of the names changed the interpertation of the bible? How did you realized that all the stories are about us personally?!!!?
