Today is my mother’s birthday.  I forgot it this morning.  Guess I had better call her huh?

Today’s scripture if Isaiah 60:1-2Isaiah 60:1-2
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

60 1 Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. shine...: or, be enlightened; for thy light cometh 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.

“Arise, shine; for thy light is me, 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 rise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.”

Today is the time for us to rise up and take a stand for Jesus.  Today, I proclaim the light of the Lord is upon you and will bring the glory of the Lord upon you also.  Why is this important?  As the glory of the Lord comes upon you, God will permit others to see that ‘something’ is different about you. 

People are seeking ‘something’ in their lives which will bring about peace, contentment, and a satisfied life.  When Christ is there, peace will be there.  As people seek for peace, we tend to get into trouble by our selves.

When we stand on the earth with out God, sin comes into our lives.  This gross or great darkness comes from evil not God.  He is the God which brings joy and light into our lives.

As the end comes closer, ‘gross darkness will cover the people’ meaning sin will about.  As Christians we must stand firm with Christ.  God never told us things would be easy, He only promised to be with us.

I agree we will probably be gone before the great tribulation comes.   What I do know for sure is we will all have the opportunity to suffer and even experience a physical death for our salvation and belief in Jesus.  Christ did not keep the disciples from death and suffering, so why would He protect you and I?  Are we greater than they?

Even when the gross sinful nature of man is amongst us, we can have that assurance of where we are going when we do leave this fleshly body.  Heaven is not only my goal, but it is my focus in this life.

You may take my family, my home, my life, but you can never take my faith in Christ.

Arise today!  Be that light of God that the world can see.  Let all KNOW where you stand in this life with Christ Jesus.
