ARISE and SHINE for NOW is the TIME

ARISE and Shine for NOW is the Time

ARISE AND SHINE my children for I have need of you in this hour. NOW is the time that you have waited. If there was ever a time, for my children to stand it is NOW and do what I’ve prepared them to DO. For the last TEN years, some have walked through their Wilderness and others have experienced the walk through the Shadow of the valley of death not because of unbelief and fear.

It was necessary to prepare you for this Season. I had to pull off and pull you out of some things during this period and establish a TRUST relationship with only ME. It was to toughen you up for they will be attacks on your character and integrity, your belief and faithfulness. (Check your armor daily and use your weapons- Ephesians 6:10-20)

It was an AWAKENING period for SELF (SOUL) and an opportunity for my children to seem themselves in the reflection of my LIGHT. It exposed the small dark specks of insecurities, and abuses which the enemy inflicted upon you and used to distract and hinder your walk with and for me. BUT the renewing process is almost done and TODAY is the POP quiz. (Ephesians 5:14)

Will you stand and not sit when your loyalty for me is challenged or questioned?  Will you use the weapons that I have given you?  Will you set aside all dead weights you are still holding on to that has hindered you from stepping into your destiny? Do you discern this is the time to give all to this Specific assignment like I gave Joshua in his day? (Joshua 3:5)

For I have given you a SPECIFIC assignment (purpose) in this hour. I have set you aside for such a time as this. In your wilderness walk I exposed negativity and natural inheritances to remove the lusts of the flesh that has hindered you along the way. Flesh can not go on this last leg of the journey and your weapons are not carnal. Therefore:

Forget the past things,

Forgive along the way,

Reach for the things before you

Press toward the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. (Phillipians 3:13)

So with this awakening and enlighten, ARISE AND SHINE my children be the LIGHT AND USE THE LIGHT for this generation. For you were called out of darkness to be LIGHT, ARISE AND SHINE for I have need of you TODAY.  (1 Peter 2:9, Romans 13: 11-14)

Scriptures:

Ephesians 5:14Amplified Bible (AMP)

14 Therefore He says, Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall shine (make day dawn) upon you and give you light.

Ephesians 5:1-20Amplified Bible (AMP)

Therefore be imitators of God [copy Him and follow His example], as well-beloved children [imitate their father].

And walk in love, [esteeming and delighting in one another] as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us, a [a]slain offering and sacrifice to God [for you, so that it became] a sweet fragrance.

But immorality (sexual vice) and all impurity [[b]of lustful, rich, wasteful living] or greediness must not even be named among you, as is fitting andproper among saints (God’s consecrated people).

Let there be no filthiness (obscenity, indecency) nor foolish and sinful (silly and corrupt) talk, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting or becoming; but instead voice your thankfulness [to God].

For be sure of this: that no person practicing sexual vice or impurity in thought or in life, or one who is covetous [who has lustful desire for the property of others and is greedy for gain]—for he [in effect] is an idolater—has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.

Let no one delude and deceive you with empty excuses and groundless arguments [for these sins], for through these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of rebellion and disobedience.

So do not associate or be sharers with them.

For once you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord; walk as children of Light [lead the lives of those native-born to the Light].

For the fruit (the effect, the product) of the Light or [c]the Spirit [consists] in every form of kindly goodness, uprightness of heart, and trueness of life.

10 And try to learn [in your experience] what is pleasing to the Lord [let your lives be constant proofs of what is most acceptable to Him].

11 Take no part in and have no fellowship with the fruitless deeds andenterprises of darkness, but instead [let your lives be so in contrast as to][d]expose and reprove and convict them.

12 For it is a shame even to speak of or mention the things that [such people] practice in secret.

13 But when anything is exposed and reproved by the light, it is made visibleand clear; and where everything is visible and clear there is light.

14 Therefore He says, Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall shine (make day dawn) upon you and give you light.

15 Look carefully then how you walk! Live purposefully and worthily andaccurately, not as the unwise and witless, but as wise (sensible, intelligent people),

16 Making the very most of the time [buying up each opportunity], because the days are evil.

17 Therefore do not be vague and thoughtless and foolish, but understandingand firmly grasping what the will of the Lord is.

18 And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery; but ever be filledand stimulated with the [Holy] Spirit.

19 Speak out to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, offering praise with voices [[e]and instruments] and making melody with all your heart to the Lord,

20 At all times and for everything giving thanks in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God the Father.

Romans 13:11-14Amplified Bible (AMP)

11 Besides this you know what [a critical] hour this is, how it is high time now for you to wake up out of your sleep (rouse to reality). For salvation (final deliverance) is nearer to us now than when we first believed (adhered to, trusted in, and relied on Christ, the Messiah).

12 The night is far gone and the day is almost here. Let us then drop (fling away) the works and deeds of darkness and put on the [full] armor of light.

13 Let us live and conduct ourselves honorably and becomingly as in the [open light of] day, not in reveling (carousing) and drunkenness, not in immorality and debauchery (sensuality and licentiousness), not in quarreling and jealousy.

14 But clothe yourself with the Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah), and make no provision for [indulging] the flesh [put a stop to thinking about the evil cravings of your physical nature] to [gratify its] desires (lusts).
