“Get out of bed, Jerusalem! Wake up. Put your face in the sunlight. God’s bright glory has risen for you.”

Isaiah 60:1 (MSG)
 

THE MESSAGE

For too long the Church of Jesus Christ has taken the back seat in every area. We have chosen to walk barefoot while servants ride on horses. But I came your way today to challenge you to arise. The time for mediocrity is gone. The time to sit back idly and sing the song, “Whatever will be, will be”, has passed. It is time to arise.

The popular and powerful scripture in Isaiah 60:1-2, “Arise, shine; for thy light is come, 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 arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee” (KJV), has been reduced to an ordinary cliché. This has happened even though we see what has been described in Isaiah 60:2 occurring right before our very eyes. The time has come for God’s vision to become reality. It is a prophetic demand on the Church, and we cannot afford to fail.

The time has come for us to awake from our slumber and take our rightful position as the change agents, the authorised agents, of heaven on earth. It is an indictment against you as believers that whenever people want the best hands for an assignment they look to the world instead of the Church. We are the custodians of the power and grace of God, so we must be a role model to the world. You have at your disposal the wisdom of God, and must not frustrate His grace.

If we are carriers of His grace and power but refuse to take our position and shine as the light in our world, the devil and his cohorts will keep us in bondage. And the kingdom of God will not advance. As the world gets darker, it is time for us to shine at our brightest. Of course, this task will not be easy. It places a heavy demand on us that we must be ready to pay.

As you go about your activities, walk with your shoulders back, knowing that you cannot fail. For the Greater One dwells in you and has given you the victory.
