Arise and Shine Lighthouse
To “Arise” is the same word as “stand”. It is time to rise up and be established in God and to understand covenant in a new a deeper way in this season. It also is to “abide”, which is a place of intimacy. The Lord is establishing His house and securing our foundations to prepare us for the harvest. The Lord is saying “It’s time to get back to the basics.” and “return to your first love.” He wants us to be strengthened in Him. He is reordering, resetting, and repositioning us. Our foundations must be secure so that we may endure. If your foundation is not firm, you will not be able to stand. In order to stand in this next season, you must have Wisdom and Revelation which will only come from the secret place. To “shine” (revelation) is to illuminate, and reveal, to kindle and set on fire. It’s time to STAND and be set on Fire! It is harvest time!
“Arise, shine; for your light has come, And the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. For behold, darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness the peoples; But the Lord will rise upon you And His glory will appear upon you. Nations will come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising.” Isaiah 60:1-3
“Therefore, everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. Matthew 7:24
“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16
