“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven,” Matthew 5:14-16 NKJV.
“Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world . He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life,” John 8:12 NKJV.
“I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work. As long as I AM in the world, I AM the light of the world,” John 9:4-5 NKJV.
“I AM the Light of the World, and I have come to you, that you might be the light of the world.
No one lights a lamp, then covers it with a basket. I made you to SHINE in this world. Soon you will shine so much, that no one would be able to miss the light that is in you.
My light will be SEEN upon you, so that everyone will know WHOSE you are! I will make My light to shine, shine, shine upon you with the heavy weight of My GLORY!
I AM not slack concerning My promises, so don’t give up beloveds. Don’t fall short and like Esau, give up on your birthright. “
STAND FAST and HOLD ON TIGHT with all of your might to My robe, for I AM coming as never before.
Know that it is now at hand, and not just soon, but AT HAND. I AM YOUR SAVIOUR, and in the midst of this darkness I WILL make you to shine the light of My glory on those who want it.
I don’t speak as others speak. I don’t just make a promise and fail to bring it about. Will I make pregnant and not bring to birth?
Do I not perform My very Word as I’ve had it written?
Understand that this is the year of the LORD’s vengeance. I intend to repay My enemies in full in the coming days, so hold on for the ride of your life beloveds, for the escalation is INCREASING.”
“It is the sound of the LORD repaying his enemies all they deserve. “Before she goes into labor, she gives birth; before the pains come upon her, she delivers a son.
Who has ever heard of such a thing? Who has ever seen such things? Can a country be born in a day or a nation be brought forth in a moment? Yet no sooner is Zion in labor than she gives birth to her children. Do I bring to the moment of birth and not give delivery?” says the LORD. “Do I close up the womb when I bring to delivery?” says your God,” Isaiah 66:6-9 NIV.
“Come unto My palanquin beloved Bride, and taste and see that Your LORD is good. Come away with Me and talk with Me. Let ME have My WAY with you!
For I desire you greatly beloved. I want to heal your wounds and restore your confidence in My ability to do ALL things.
I AM not slack in My promises to you. I will not. I will not. I will not abandon you. I AM routing the little foxes, and I AM making more room for My GLORY to be shed into your being, that everything your heart has desired to be, you can be.
Just come away with ME. Just listen for the still small voice, and follow Me.
I AM a gracious KING and I give good gifts to My children. I know the sacrifice you have made to follow ME completely.
I will not let go. I will always be at the side of My BRIDE! I will SING over you with JOY! I will hasten My steps in the coming days, so anticipate CHANGE beloveds.
ANTICIPATE union with your Lover. I AM waiting only a bit longer, and SUDDENLY I will come to My temple, which you are!
Suddenlies will descend upon you like a whirlwind. So step into flexibility, and listen to MY VOICE for how to do things.
LISTEN, and WAIT on ME. My heart is longing and aching for union with My BRIDE.
Don’t lose heart at the enemy’s torments, and trying to steal the blessing. HE CANNOT. HE CANNOT take away what is MINE alone to give.
I AM only killing the flesh that rises up to oppose Me, and My ways. STAND FAST BELOVEDS!
Worship ME in the beauty of holiness, in the beauty of the season, let Your praises fill the air.
Be not ashamed! Speak My praises boldly. For as YOU speak them, I will make MY LIGHT to shine all the brighter on you!
Kings will come to the light of your rising!”
