Rise and Shine

Incredibly this cry from Isaiah is the only sentence in the Hebrew scriptures containing a pairing of rise and shine.

Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD has risen upon you. Isa 60:1

Upgrades are ready!

It is an upgrade and reversal prophecy. The rising light brings the following surprises, reminiscent of Paul’s exhortation (Eph. 3:20-21) to be ready for God to provide answers that exceed our requests.

  1. Instead of bronze I will bring gold,
  2. and instead of iron I will bring silver;
  3. instead of wood, bronze,
  4. instead of stones, iron.
  5. I will make your overseers peace
  6. and your taskmasters righteousness. Isa 60:17

Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, Eph 3:20  to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen. Eph 3:21
