Body of Christ – If You ARISE and SHINE, The GLORY of the LORD will RISE ON YOU

Body of Christ rise up!

Let the wolves know that you are not their “niche market,” you are the Bride of Christ the King of the Universe!

In 2013 arise and shine, for the glory of the Lord is Risen upon YOU, and the wealth of the Gentiles is YOURS.

Worshippers, Take Authority!

 

Isaiah 60

The Glory of Zion

60Ā ā€œArise,Ā shine, for your lightĀ has come,
and the gloryĀ of theĀ LordĀ rises upon you.
2Ā See, darknessĀ covers the earth
and thick darknessĀ is over the peoples,
but theĀ LordĀ rises upon you
and his glory appears over you.
3Ā NationsĀ will come to your light,
and kingsĀ to the brightness of your dawn.

4Ā ā€œLift up your eyes and look about you:
All assembleĀ and come to you;
your sons come from afar,
and your daughtersĀ are carried on the hip.
5Ā Then you will look and be radiant,
your heart will throb and swell with joy;
the wealthĀ on the seas will be brought to you,
to you the riches of the nations will come.
6Ā Herds of camelsĀ will cover your land,
young camels of MidianĀ and Ephah.
And all from ShebaĀ will come,
bearing gold and incense
and proclaiming the praiseĀ of theĀ Lord.
7Ā All Kedarā€™sĀ flocks will be gathered to you,
the rams of Nebaioth will serve you;
they will be accepted as offeringsĀ on my altar,
and I will adorn my glorious temple.

8Ā ā€œWho are theseĀ that fly along like clouds,
like doves to their nests?
9Ā Surely the islandsĀ look to me;
in the lead are the ships of Tarshish,[a]
bringingĀ your children from afar,
with their silver and gold,
to the honorĀ of theĀ LordĀ your God,
the Holy OneĀ of Israel,
for he has endowed you with splendor.

10Ā ā€œForeignersĀ will rebuild your walls,
and their kingsĀ will serve you.
Though in anger I struck you,
in favorĀ I will show you compassion.
11Ā Your gatesĀ will always stand open,
they will never be shut, day or night,
so that people may bring you the wealth of the nationsā€”
their kingsĀ led in triumphal procession.
12Ā For the nation or kingdom that will not serveĀ you will perish;
it will be utterly ruined.
