Isa. 60:1,14 (Amp)- ARISE (from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you; rise to a new life)! Shine–be radiant with the glory of the LORD; for your light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon you……
Vs 14- The sons of those who afflicted you shall come bending low to you, and all those who despised you shall bow down at your feet, and they shall call you the City of the LORD, the Zion of the holy One of Israel.
vs. 21- Your people also shall all be (uncompromisingly and consistently) righteous; they shall possess the land for ever, the branch of My planting, the work of My hands, that I may be glorified.
This is the word of The Lord that we’re hearing as we enter into 2014! You will “Arise and Shine” and Arise and Sing, as children and sons of Zion! Zion is the habitation of God’s praise in the earth, the church of the Firstborn. You are come to mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem… (He. 12:22)
Isa. 61:4- And they (people of God) shall rebuild the ancient ruins, they shall raise up the former desolations and renew the ruined cities, the devastations of many generations.
Let us “Arise” and “Let God arise…
Blessed and Happy New Year!
