Arise and shine

Posted by appolus on April 16, 2017

Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. (Isa 60:1-2)

In Exodus 10:22-23 we see that there was a thick or gross darkness that covered the land for three days as a judgment on the land of Egypt. It was so dark that men could not see each other “but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings.” Even in the midst of gross darkness that covered the land, all of God’s children had light in their dwellings. God caused their dwelling place to be full of light. In verse 17 God said that He would beautify the place of His sanctuary for those who had been forsaken and hated and that He would make them an ” eternal excellence.”

Now I want to encourage you if you are hated and forsaken. God has not forgotten you and He loves you with an everlasting love. We all dwell in darkness right now and the darkness is getting thicker. Gross darkness is approaching and will surely cover the whole earth! Yet, we, the sons and daughters of the Kingdom, the remnant saints here on earth are the dwelling place of God and He has promised that we would be full of light and that this light would arise, for the glory of our God will rise up within us as the enemy comes in with a flood of darkness.

Hab 2:14 For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea. Even in the midst of tremendous judgement and great darkness we see here a promise from the prophet that all of the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of God as the waters cover the sea. All the earth shall see the glory of God as He arises in the hearts of His people. The glory of God shall rise out of the darkness of sin and judgement. Gods children will be a witness, a light unto all the nations of the Gospel of the Kingdom of God and then the end shall come.

Lord I pray that you revive the work of your saints in the midst of gross darkness. Lord in your wrath remember your mercy. Let your light and your glory arise in the hearts of your saints and lift the heads of those who cry out to you. And though the fig tree shall not blossom nor fruit be in the vines and flocks shall be cut off from their folds yet shall we rejoice in the Lord. Our joy will flow from our salvation, you are our strength and you give us feet that can cause us to walk in the high places of your presence. Your glory covers the heavens and may the earth hear the praises of you from the saints upon whom you shall fill with your light. Arise and shine and let the glory of the Lord rise above and penetrate the gross darkness. Thank you Lord, be glorified.
