No man when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under a bed; but setteth it on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light (Luke 8:16).
Let your light shine for all the world to see, that they may know from whence you come and to whom you belong. But many of you are like lamps with shades: just a dim representation of what a bright light should be. It cast a shadow in a small area, just barely making a difference. But be careful! For when the enemy comes, will your light be able to withstand the harshness? Will it be able to endure the darkness? And the bumpy road that is before us, will you stand up to it? Will you be able to say, My light is a representation of Christ: I stand with intensity, with the strength of my God, with the ferocity of the Lion of Judah. For the day is coming when dim lights shall flicker away easily with the passing breeze. These things will come, my beloved; for we are living in the evil days. Be not afraid that I say these things. But rather be alarm and ensure that you are ready in Christ. And that the hand of God is with you every step of the way. In him we will find strength. In him our lights shall shine brightly. It is this brightness that I want to emphasize. For it is only then we can stand up to what we shall face in the days to come. Remove the shade from off of your light and let your light shine. Be in the fullness of your glory and walk with the humility and confidence of Christ. And be not ashamed for the light that burns inside of you. Carry it with the honour God has bestowed upon you. O children of righteousness, do we not represent the beacon of light upon the hill? For we are children of this light so let us walk in this brightness. And when we are weary and weak we will seek comfort and refuge under the wings of God. But nevertheless, let every man stand with the brightness of the living God. Let us rise up in the glory of our God. O great is the God who shineth his light upon the world. Let this be the light we look to, and follow. Follow the Christ, the everlasting light that came into the world, that we may see and not be kept in the dark. Give glory to God. Give glory to the most High. Let his name be praise. And let us walk as children of lights. Let us be wise in the wisdom of our God, who is infinitely wise, in whose heavenly glory we are partakers. Let us then be good stewards of this honour, giving thanks to our God. Always remember that he is with us to the ends of the earth. And he is faithful and true. May the grace and mercy of God abide with you and cover you all the days of your life. Yea, may the goodness of God be with all of you. May he forever remind you of him, and show you things you knew not. My beloved, forsake not the praise of God, even when things are difficult. Keep your eyes on Christ. Let him be the one that glory, who sits at the right hand of the Father. Let glory come to the LORD. Let us bless him; for he is righteous and holy. O the goodness of God is with us. And the power and glory of God is upon me. Let us stand up in the praise of our God, in the beauty that is magnificent, and magnify his name. Let joy seep into your hearts and fatten your souls with gladness. Rejoice in the LORD. Rejoice in his name that is wonderful. The beauty of holiness shall come down upon us. The LORD is my God. Surely the ends of the earth shall magnify his name. Glory shall abound. The heaven shall open up and the glory that shall beseech my God shall be great. I tell you the truth: the God that I serve is a mighty God. He taketh away the fears of my heart and he put gladness. Joy swell up with praises. And with the boldness of the Holy Spirit I rejoice. Yea, let us rejoice in the name that is Mighty and Great and Terrible. To the ends of the earth, let his name be a treasure that we seek and praise and give thanks. Yea, we will take pleasure in the LORD. We will not stand still. ” Arise, shine; for the 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” (Isaiah 60:1 – 2). Rise up from your slumber! Awake with strength! And let the glory of God beseech thee. Be a testimony of our great King that shall reign in Zion forever. O Father, let your glory be magnified; for today I call on thy name, thy name that is great and mighty. And the lifting up of thy glory is upon the face of the earth. The earth rage with praises. It magnified thy name. For by thy hand which thou given to us, thy beloved, we give unto thee without measure. O children of righteousness, be not still with thy rejoicing. Make a great shout like a trumpet; for the LORD our God is a marvelous God. Majesty and glory beseech him. O what a beautiful crown that is upon his head. Let us praise his name forever and ever. Let our joy abide with him. To the ends of the earth, let them abide.
May the spirit of the living God be with you, in the fullness of his glory that you may know that through him we are victors against the corruption of the world. Amen. Blessed be the name of our LORD and Saviour Jesus Christ ( Yeshua Hamashiach). And may his mercy abide with you.
