Light up the darkness.

Posted by appolus on December 23, 2021

Dan 9:17  Now therefore, O our God, hear the prayer of thy servant, and his supplications, and cause thy face to shine upon thy sanctuary that is desolate, for the Lord’s sake.

Oh Lord, cause your face to shine upon the sanctuary that is desolate. Surely we, just as much as Daniel can cry out to God this prayer. The sanctuary lies in darkness and in ruins as Daniel prays this prayer. It is forsaken and abandoned and only the light from the face of God Almighty can pierce and shatter the darkness that it lies under. We too, in our day, find ourselves far from that place that God would have us to be. A place of unity among the Body of Christ. A place of power and love. Babylon has taken us today just as surely as it took the Israelite’s. Yet we labor under the great disadvantage of not knowing we have been taken.

Jesus says in John 17:24 “Father I desire that they also whom  you gave me may be with me where I am, that they may behold My glory.” In this place of glory there dwells immeasurable light. It is the light from the face of God Himself. This light, this glory fills the temple. We as a people are a sanctuary that lies in ruins. We dwell at ease in Babylon. We are lulled by its Satanic lullaby. Oh Lord, for thine own sake cause your Face to shine upon us that we mat reflect thy glory into a dark and dying world. How else will the people of darkness even know that there is such a light? Let them lift their eyes towards the night sky and see that it declares your glory, let them cast their eyes upon a people of light whose countenance reflects your glory.
