"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." Isaiah 60:1, 2
IN JESUS TODAY!
A telling of the future, as darkness increases in the world. The darker the world, the brighter your light! Arise, shine, it's that time! You have the light, you have the glory of the Lord. Darkness is now increased upon the earth at the refusal to accept Jesus and his word, a refusal to come to the light even as they watch the darkness increase. Clearly it can be seen that Jesus is the captain of a ship called salvation, and it is sailing day and night seeking to rescue those that are sinking. Many are waiting and hoping for this ship to pass by, to leave them alone, or in some cases that a life line would be cast out to them. This is where you come in. On this ship called salvation you are maning the life line. As Jesus sails towards the hurting and the lost, it is upon you to throw out the life line and encourage them to come to safety. One thing though, they can't see you if you fail to stand up on the boat and shine your light. As the oceans of the world and all of its darkness surrounds those that are helpless and will possibly perish, you are the light that is cutting through and reaching out and pulling them in. The future is getting darker and so many have accepted this in their life and have lost all hope of rescue, but Jesus still sails and will sail this ship of salvation unto the end.
Now there is hope and there is time, but you are very important in this process. Arise and shine! Cast out your life line and pull the hurting in. "For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings." Hebrews 2:10 Jesus is the captain of the ship called, "Salvation" and we are a life line!
