Tag Archive | Arise Shine

A Perfectly Cut Diamond

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

Just Shine!

“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

 

 

 

Pursue Me

What would have happened if Moses had not veiled his face at the peoples’ insistence? Repentance would have come. For what is brought to the light is revealed, and what is revealed will be cleansed.

Sin cannot stand in My Presence.

My Presence brings forth repentance.

Moses’ face shown with My Presence for he communed with Me and when he descended that mountain, My Presence remained upon Him; for I went with him.

When you come into My Presence it is not temporary–I go with you. But it is in the active communion with Me that My anointing flows; My Glory is revealed upon you.

Stay actively seeking, actively communing; even throughout your day.

Whatever chance may come, and whatever time you pursue. And, you will find that My Glory shines ever brighter as your spirit communes with Mine.

Deep calls to deep

Go for the glow–be actively seeking.

Be aglow in the Spirit.

Pursue Me!

“When Moses entered the tent, the pillar of cloud would descend and stand at the door of the tent, and the Lord would speak with Moses.” “Thus the Lord used to speak to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend.”  “And he said, “My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.'” Exodus 33:9, 11a, 14

“When Moses came down from Mount Sinai, with the two tables of the testimony in his hand as he came down from the mountain, Moses did not know that the skin of his face shone because he had been talking with God. And when Aaron and all the people of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone, and they were afraid to come near him.” Exodus 34:29-30

“And when Moses had finished speaking with them, he put a veil on his face; but whenever Moses went in before the Lord to speak with him, he took the veil off, until he came out; and when he came out, and told the people of Israel what he was commanded, the people of Israel saw the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses’ face shone; and Moses would put the veil upon his face again, until he went in to speak with him.” Exodus 34:33-35

“Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts; all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.” Psalms 42:7 KJV

“Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity” Habakkuk 1:13a KJV

“Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal bodies, to make you obey their passions. Do not yield your members to sin as instruments of wickedness, but yield yourselves to God as men who have been brought from death to life, and your members to God as instruments of righteousness. For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.” Romans 6:12-14

“O give thanks to the Lord, call on his name, make known his deeds among the peoples! Sing to him, sing praises to him, tell of all his wonderful works! Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice! Seek the Lord and his strength, seek his presence continually!” I Chronicles 16:8-11

“What man is there who desires life, and covets many days, that he may enjoy good? Keep your tongue from evil, and your lips from speaking deceit. Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.” The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous, and his ears toward their cry.” Psalms 34:12-15

“Thou has said, “Seek ye my face.” My heart says to thee, ‘Thy face, Lord, do I seek.'” Psalms 27:8

“Never flag in zeal, be aglow with the Spirit, serve the Lord.” Romans 12:11

 

Star Bright

Look up Abraham, do you see the stars? So shall your descendents be. Can you number them? My Kingdom shall have no end.

You are part of that Kingdom if you said yes to My Word and received Me as your Lord and Savior. You are one of the stars that shine for Me. Your light shall never go out if you remain in My Word–basking in My Presence; you are not ashamed of the gospel, and are looking expectantly for My return.

But, stop and consider, one lone star twinkles gently in the sky; a peaceful presence that makes one smile, but many stars grouped together makes a stunning presentation. An awesome sight in the heavenlies–a path to light the way.

Forsake not the gathering together of the brethren. Your light builds off the presence of another. Encouragement and courage are found when My children are together, and I bask in the glory of My saints gathered at My feet.

You are generated from Abraham

Carry the torch…

Not just a twinkle in My eye, but ablaze for My Kingdom!

And

My Kingdom

Shall know no end.

“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

“Thus Abraham “believed God, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness.” So you see that it is men of faith who are the sons of Abraham. And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, “In you shall all the nations be blessed.” So then those who are men of faith are blessed with Abraham who had faith.” Galatians 3:6-9

“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise.” Galatians 3:28-29

“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful; and let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” Hebrews 10:23-25

“–And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never has been since there was a nation till that time; but at that time your people shall be delivered, every one whose name shall be found written in the book. And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. 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 12:1-3

“For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until her vindication goes forth as brightness, and her salvation as a burning torch. The nations shall see your vindication, and all the kings your glory; and you shall be called by a new name which the mouth of the Lord will give. You shall be a crown of beauty in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God.” Isaiah 62:1-3

“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
