I heard, “Awake, awake, oh Sleeper. Fear not, the Kiss of the Son has awakened you and it is the Glorious Armor you wear.“
“Beloved. You have been born for such a time as this. These evil days are the Time of your Rising, My Warrior. You have been set apart by the Kiss of the Son.
“I have awakened you, My Warrior Bride with Love and Grace. Now is not the time to fear. No, Dear One. Listen not to the voices of doom and gloom. Now is YOUR time.
“Now is the Time of your Revealing, My sons and daughters. I have reserved a Remnant of “sold out” Lovers of God who have not bowed their knee to Baal nor have your mouths kissed him.
“Once you were in darkness, but now you are LIGHT in Yahweh. Have no fellowship with the fruitless deeds of darkness, Dear One.
“Do not agree with the FEAR peddlers, but expose the works of darkness with the Light of the Gospel of Grace.
“Awake, My Sleeping Beauty, My sons and My daughters, My Bride; Awake for the Light of Christ is shining upon you!
“My Kiss is your protection; it is the Armor of Light you wear to the battle. The night is far spent, the Day of Salvation is at Hand.
“Proclaim My Truths in all the land. Redeem the Time, Beloved, for I AM coming soon!
“You are My Wise Ones shining like the brightness of the heavens, and you who lead many to righteousness, shall shine like the stars for ever and ever.”
Kiss: Strong’s Hebrew 5401: A primitive root (identical with nasaq, through the idea of fastening up); to kiss, literally or figuratively (touch); to equip with weapons; armed (men), rule
A kiss in the Old Testament is a symbol of submission and allegiance
“KISS the Son, lest He be angry, and you perish in the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him,” Psalm 2:12.
(God tells Elijah) “Yet I reserve seven thousand in Israel; all whose knees have not bowed down to Baal and all whose mouths have not KISSED him,” 1 Kings 19:18.
“So it is said: “Wake up, O sleeper, rise up from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” Pay careful attention, then, to how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil,” Ephesians 5:14-16.
“And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light,” Romans 13:11-12.
“Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever,” Daniel 12:3.
“For you were once darkness, but now you are light in The LORD. Walk as children of light, for the FRUIT OF THE LIGHT consists in all goodness, righteousness, and truth. Test and prove what pleases The LORD. Have no fellowship with the FRUITLESS deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. But everything exposed by the light becomes visible, for everything that is illuminated becomes a light itself. So it is said: “Wake up, O sleeper, rise up from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” Pay careful attention, then, to how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil,” Ephesians 5:8-16.
“Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever,” Daniel 12:3.
