Isaiah 60: 1-5
The truth Holy Spirit is relaying to your spirit through this passage today is that this statement is an express command. Here, the Almighty God is commanding you to arise! It is someone who is either sitting or laying down that would be commanded to arise. So, when God says “Arise”, it presupposes that you are either sitting down idle, or that you are on a bed enjoying the sleep of death. I command this day that whosoever is wasting away his or her time in idleness or in the sleep of sin and death will arise in the Name of Jesus Christ! In addition, you are not commanded to arise into obscurity; rather, you are commanded to arise and shine. I also decree that all who are reading this article today will arise from their state of obscurity and mediocrity and come to the limelight of success in Jesus’ Name. This light is not from the sun but from the glory of God shinning on you. It is written in John 8:12 “Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” Jesus Christ is the light of the world. There is fear on every side that darkness, wickedness, oppression and all sort of demonic activities have permeated the society. The darkness i am talking about is not the absence of physical light. I am talking about spiritual darkness, principalities and powers (Ephesians 6:12). But there is a sound of abundance revival coming and this brings about the call of God on you to Arise and shine.

SUMMARY: You must respond to the awakening call to arise and shine for your light has come. Are you still in darkness? Why has your light not come? It may be because you have not embraced the Light. If that is the case, today is your day. Accept Jesus, the Light, into your life today and darkness will no longer comprehend you, and therefore will be unable to stop you (John 1:5).
