2 For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the Lord will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you.
3 The Gentiles shall come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising
14 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.
The signs of our day are a pointer to the fact that we are in the last days. Things are fast changing. Trends are fast shifting. People are changing as much as change itself. We sure are in the last days. Today’s opening Scripture tells us that in the last days, darkness shall cover the earth and gross darkness the people. But that’s not all about the story. The Word declares that contrary to the general prevalence of darkness, the Lord shall arise upon you and His glory shall be seen upon you. What God is saying in essence is that people who do not know God will gravitate towards the light of God that is shining in you. In other words, you are going to be the epicentre of light, wisdom, grace and glory. The Word tells us that the Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. This prophecy is meant for the last days in which we are, and it shows contrasting experiences. The world will be covered with darkness and the people with gross darkness, but the Lord is arising upon us. The world is in darkness, but we are in the light; they are confused but we are instructed; they are oppressed, but we are living in liberty. So, we are the light of the world, ministering light and help to them! Hallelujah!
The Word says Gentiles shall come to your light and kings to the brightness of your rising, which means that you are going to be making progress, you are going to be commanding results that cannot be denied; results that cannot be hidden. You are rising to prominence and relevance such that you cannot be relegated to the background. The world is going to have to see your remarkable side. You are going to be the problem solver, not the problem. As a result of that, people of weight and significance will gravitate towards you. It says Gentiles will come to your light and kings to the brightness of your rising. Hallelujah! God is going to be announcing you. You will not be scouting for people’s attention, for the glory of the Lord, the favour of the Lord, is upon you. You are the light of the world. You are not going to live your life an obscure person but one to be seen and appreciated by your world. That’s your portion in these last days; that’s your destiny. Unbelievers are coming to know the Lord Christ through you!
MY SOLID FRONT (YOUR CONFESSION):
I declare in the Name of Jesus Christ, that this is my year of rising, my year of shining. Gentiles come to my light and kings to the brightness of my rising. I ride upon the high places of the earth and walk in prominence and relevance. Amen.
