Unusual distinction is what I have designated for each and every one of My followers. I do not want you to fade into the background not to be seen but, rather, I delight to show the world My light, and it shines through you! You are a pattern that cannot be duplicated–a light that shines a hue of only you.
“Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and thick darkness the peoples; but the Lord will arise upon you, and his glory will be seen upon you. And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.” Isaiah 60:1-3
Do you see it?
Like a perfectly cut diamond in a dimly lit room–so is My Body in a dark and sin-filled world. When My light casts upon My Body, each of you a different facet, catching My light with unusual distinction; magnifying to the world with bold definition who your God is and what He means to you.
- Your say
- Your way
- Your ray
I Am the light of the world–each facet multiplied in glorious splendor; every color imaginable and some you can’t imagine but will have to be shown. Oh wait and see! How delighted you will be when you see all the colors flowing from the Throne. An endless sea of saints gathered there–hearts united, not divided. A splendorous repeat of Satan’s endless defeat.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God; all things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” John 1:1-5
“–And lo, a throne stood in heaven, with one seated on the throne! And he who sat there appeared like jasper and carnelian, and round the throne was a rainbow that looked like an emerald. Round the throne were twenty-four thrones, and seated on the thrones were twenty-four elders, clad in white garments, with golden crowns upon their heads. From the throne issue flashes of lightening, and voices and peals of thunder, and before the throne burn seven torches of fire, which are the seven spirits of God; and before the throne there is as it were a sea of glass, like crystal.” Revelation 4:2b-6
Don’t wait for that day, begin today–Shine
“For it is God who said, “let light shine out of darkness,” who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, to show that the transcendent power belongs to God and not to us.” II Corinthians 4:6-7
Draw from the Throne a color all your own and shine in endless, Glorious Splendor
“And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament; and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.” Daniel 12:3
“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:16
“In thy strength the king rejoices, O Lord; and in thy help how greatly he exults! Thou hast given him his heart’s desire, and hast not withheld the request of his lips. For thou dost meet him with goodly blessings; thou dost set a crown of fine gold upon his head. He asked life of thee, thou gavest it to him, length of days for ever and ever. His glory is great through thy help; splendor and majesty thou dost bestow upon him. Yea, thou dost make him most blessed for ever; thou dost make him glad with the joy of thy presence. For the king trusts in the Lord; and through the steadfast love of the Most High he shall not be moved.” Psalms 21:1-7
“I will bless the Lord at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul makes its boast in the Lord; let the afflicted hear and be glad. O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together!” Psalms 34:1-3
