Now, there is, and will continue to be, “darkness that covers the earth” according to the prophet Isaiah, and this of course, is spiritual darkness. The “people will be covered with deep darkness” and the people of the world will grow darker and darker in gross sin. This will be the case, despite every Godless lie about our societies getting better and better because of self-goodness and self-godness; because of possibility, probability and positive thinking, and despite “gospel preachers” telling us, “All is well, all is well'”. “Just think good thoughts and clean your breath with a Test-a-mint from the Bible book store.” Yeah, right. Darkness shall grow worse.
“But the Lord will arise over you, and His glory shall be seen upon you.” Isaiah continues. The Light of Jesus will break darkness. And this is the exciting part; the Lord will arise on us and be seen on us. The time is here when those who are lost in sin, void of meaning in their life, without hope, without help, weary of searching for truth, and just down right sick and tired will come to those upon whom the Lord has rested; those upon whom the Lord is seen. They will want three things: the Lord, the Light, and the Glory. The Lord would have us all “arise and shine.”
“I am the light of the world. He who follows me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” Jesus
