God: shine forth the lights…
Isaiah 60:1-3 (KJV) “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. And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising”.
As we walk through this journey we call life, there are many things which makes it evident that a real darkness has overtaken the world, things that would have been a cause of comfort is pretty distressing and it is an escalating situation.
For this cause it is important that folks seek the light and this can only be found through the true source: Jesus Christ.
He came as a lamb and rose as the light of the world; He underwent the persecution designated by the world and He triumphed, and that only supports His authority as being the Christ.
Beloved, the word commands you to “arise, shine; for thy light is come”; it is an assurance, rise to the challenge of keeping your eyes fixed on the light of the world; He has arrived: received Him.
