Isaiah 60 vs. 1-3
“1 Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.
2 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.
3 And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.”
Darkness represents evil and anything that is not good; things that bring hurt to you and your family. Look around you what do you see? You hear of divorce cases, murders, drugs, etc. the darkness is getting thicker by the day (Isaiah 60 vs.2).
There is hope for God’s elects, praise God! In fact, the darker the darkness is, the brighter our light will shine. Christians are pacesetters, we are to save the unbelievers from destructions in verse 3 of Isaiah 60, and the Bible clearly spelled it out for us.
“14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”
Unfortunately, we do not know our place in Christ; we have completely exchanged our destiny for morsel meat. Psalms 82 vs.5-7
“They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.
6 I have said, Ye are gods, and all of you are children of the most High.
7 But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.” And Ecclesiastes 10:7 shows how we have really sunk from our right place. “I have seen servants upon horses, and princes walking as servants upon the earth.”
How do you shatter the darkness?
You cannot stop the darkness without the light of God in you. There is hope, and the Way out from this gross darkness is through Jesus Christ. Jesus is the Light of the world; until you accept Jesus as your Lord and personal Savior will continue to grope in darkness.
For the Bible says in John 1:12; “12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name” You need the power to exempt yourself from the evil that has befallen the earth and to save the Gentiles from falling prey to the devil’s tricks.
How do we partake of the Light?
Romans 10: 9 “9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
Romans 10:10 “for with the heart man believeth unto righteousness, and with the mouth, confession is made unto salvation.”
Verse 13 of the same chapter 13 “for whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
ENCOURAGE YOURSELF: Accept Jesus Christ today and exempt yourself from the evil of this world and also get the opportunity to save families.
