Isaiah 60

1 Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of theLord is risen upon thee.

For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.

And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.

Lift up thine eyes round about, and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to thee: thy sons shall come from far, and thy daughters shall be nursed at thy side.

Then thou shalt see, and flow together, and thine heart shall fear, and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be converted unto thee, the forces of the Gentiles shall come unto thee.

The multitude of camels shall cover thee, the dromedaries of Midian and Ephah; all they from Sheba shall come: they shall bring gold and incense; and they shall shew forth the praises of the Lord.

All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together unto thee, the rams of Nebaioth shall minister unto thee: they shall come up with acceptance on mine altar, and I will glorify the house of my glory.

Who are these that fly as a cloud, and as the doves to their windows?

Surely the isles shall wait for me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring thy sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, unto the name of the Lord thy God, and to the Holy One of Israel, because he hath glorified thee.

10 And the sons of strangers shall build up thy walls, and their kings shall minister unto thee: for in my wrath I smote thee, but in my favour have I had mercy on thee.

11 Therefore thy gates shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; that men may bring unto thee the forces of the Gentiles, and that their kings may be brought.

12 For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted.

13 The glory of Lebanon shall come unto thee, the fir tree, the pine tree, and the box together, to beautify the place of my sanctuary; and I will make the place of my feet glorious.

14 The sons also of them that afflicted thee shall come bending unto thee; and all they that despised thee shall bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet; and they shall call thee; The city of the Lord, The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.

15 Whereas thou has been forsaken and hated, so that no man went through thee, I will make thee an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations.

16 Thou shalt also suck the milk of the Gentiles, and shalt suck the breast of kings: and thou shalt know that I the Lordam thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.

17 For brass I will bring gold, and for iron I will bring silver, and for wood brass, and for stones iron: I will also make thy officers peace, and thine exactors righteousness.

18 Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise.

19 The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the Lordshall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory.

20 Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the Lord shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended.

21 Thy people also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified.

22 A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I the Lord will hasten it in his time.

  1. 2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.

    We are certainly living in a dark world, considering the horrible things we hear of people doing to each other. We must let God’s glory be seen upon us. He is the only one who can change them, and we must lead them to Him, but if they can’t see Him in us, how will they know?

    Matthew 5:14 KJV
    14. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

  2. Surely the isles shall wait for me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring thy sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, unto the name of the Lord thy God, and to the Holy One of Israel, because he hath glorified thee.

  7. Revival in the Land

    4 Lift up thine eyes round about, and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to thee: thy sons shall come from far, and thy daughters shall be nursed at thy side.

    5 Then thou shalt see, and flow together, and thine heart shall fear, and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be converted unto thee, the forces of the Gentiles shall come unto thee.

    Can you see it, open your eyes, can you imagine that day when you lost son or daughter returns to the house of the Lord. What a great joyous day that will be. We will call Him Savior, Redeemer, and His Glory will be our light forever more. Thank you Jesus for your Promises are yeah and amen, and you are always ON TIME.

  8. THE PROMISED HARVEST

    22 A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I the Lord will hasten it in his time.

    It is evident that life is about seasons and our ability to TRUST GOD during the changing of those seasons and endure, excel and execute during the specific season.

    This chapter is about the hand of the LORD in THE PROMISED HARVEST. The LORD said he will hasten it in HIS time. We for the most part are impatient people and desire that everything be done NOW or yesterday. The LORD here affirms that if we have FAITH in GOD, that HE will in HIS time, bring healing, restoration, blessing and a mighty harvest to HIS people.

    MSG
    Your sun will never go down,
    your moon will never fade.
    I will be your eternal light.
    Your days of grieving are over.
    All your people will live right and well,
    in permanent possession of the land.
    They’re the green shoot that I planted,
    planted with my own hands to display my glory.
    The runt will become a great tribe,
    the weakling become a strong nation.
    I am God.
    At the right time I’ll make it happen.”

    GOD knows the RIGHT time, which is HIS time. Thank you LORD for your WORD today, I trust you and know that you are in control of everything.

  9. 19 The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the Lordshall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory.

    The light of the world is Jesus! When he comes we will have no need for a sun or moon because he will be the light that shines everywhere. But until he returns that should be us, are we letting his light shine through us? We shouldn’t shine so people can see us but so that people can see him through us. His light is what draws others near. Again, are we letting our light shine? Not just as a church but as individuals. Can we light up a room? That should be no problem we should always have this atmosphere of joy, peace and love because that’s what Jesus is. Nobody is going to want to come to our church if we look like Jesus can’t even help us be in a good mood!! Shine your light! Draw people to him by showing his love, kindness and mercy.. It won’t be long until he comes back to take over.

  10. Make it!

    Even though darkness may cover the earth, in the end it will be gone. Jesus will be the light. Those who endure to the end will be made righteous. That’s what we are doing this for. We live for God so that one day he will make us worthy and righteous. We will be able to behold Him in his full glory and be like Him.

    We will be able to worship him for eternity and be his children. Furthermore, we will see our loved ones that made it and talk with our ancestors and descendants. How exciting! Make it and help others make it. It is the only thing that will matter in the end.

    “The Church is an Hospital”

    Isaiah 60:2-4 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. 3 And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising. 4 Lift up thine eyes round about, and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to thee: thy sons shall come from far, and thy daughters shall be nursed at thy side.

    …”thy daughters shall be nursed at thy side.”

    nurse-

    1. a person trained to care for the sick or infirm, esp. in a hospital.

    2. a person employed or trained to take charge of young children.

    3. give medical and other attention to (a sick person).

    “she nursed the girl through a dangerous illness”

    synonyms: care for, take care of, look after, tend, minister to.

    The Pentecostals of Fort Worth is an Hospital for hurting and lost souls. We have got to get IT back. Get what back? Our neon sign that can be read from miles away that says HOSPITAL. This neon sign is powered up by the Holy Ghost. Once people realize we are open and ready to help them, they will come and gather as far as the eye can see. The question we all must ask ourselves is, are we good doctors and nurses? Do we really care about the ones who are put into our care? Do we go the extra mile? Do we treat the new babies who are born in our church like we would like our physical babies to be treated?

    Its time to get IT back POFW and help and nurse the children back to life.

    Ezekiel 37:9 Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.

  12. Isaiah 60:1-2, 22 “Arise, Jerusalem! Let your light shine for all to see.For the glory of the Lord rises to shine on you. Darkness as black as night covers all the nations of the earth,but the glory of the Lord rises and appears over you.
    22 The smallest family will become a thousand people,and the tiniest group will become a mighty nation.At the right time, I, the Lord, will make it happen.” NLT

    Everything is beautiful in His time…

    Seems like increase is coming, blessings abundant blessings. A huge harvest, people from all over will bless the church. The harvest will increase from within, multiplication; the smallest family will become a thausand… I believe this word is for us at the POFW today. I am remembered how preachers have prophesied events like this happening at our church. People from different parts, even far places, even other churches coming to see and experience the glory of the Lord. Of course they will bless because the Lord will touch their heart with gratitude. However in all this promise of blessing and increased harvest I see one action that we must be sure to do. The Lord is reaffirming, I am with you. What we have to do is Arise abs Shine. We must let the world see the Light that is within us the light of Jesus. We must allow the Light to shine on all our dark places and let Jesus wash our garments bright white clean. Light reflects a lot better off white than any other dark or colored surface.

    Matthew 5:14-16 “You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.

    Ecclesiastes 3:11 Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end.

  13. 4 Lift up thine eyes round about, and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to thee: thy sons shall come from far, and thy daughters shall be nursed at thy side.

    A prophecy to the church of those that will gather together from near and far, and will be converted (new believers) and need the nature and nourishment of the mother (the church). It is our responsibility to lead, teach and train our new believers so that they have the opportunity to grow up in Christ and become fully equipped by the Word, Spirit and example of other christians to live an overcoming life in Jesus!

  14. 18 Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise.

    Welcome to Salvation…

    The word tells us that we are to enter His gates with Thanksgiving in our hearts and to enter His courts with Praise.

    We know that Lucifer was the angle on worship, until he allowed himself to think in his heart that he would exalt himself to be like God. (PRIDE)

    Because God knew what would happen long before it ever did, we know that we were made to worship, and thatour worship is more valueable to Christ than Lucifer’s ever would have been. Through our learnings we have learned that true worship and praise is like a sacrifice to the Lord, and it also works to tear down our walls too, that we might recieve the word.

    As we enter through the gates of Praise, we change to fit who He called us to be. We repent, and decide to be baptised in Jesus name. We seek His will with all our hearts. We tell others of His greatness. We do His commands, and because we do as He commanded we have the oppertunity to see eternal Salvation…

  15. This chapter illustrates everlasting. The Lord of all will be the source; “The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the Lord shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory”. What a mighty God we serve! May the good Lord Bless you all in Jesus name, Amen

  16. 1 Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of theLord is risen upon thee.

    2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.

    Lord help me to be the light to this dark world we’re living in.

  17. Pastor just said it Sunday, ‘This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine!’ I am going to challenge myself this year to reach my peers and bring them to the one and only!! I can’t wait to see what God is gonna do! Lord use me, I am a willing vessel to reach and work in the fields!

  18. We live in an era of darkness today -and sometimes it seems like gross darkness-yet God’s light is still in this world leading people to him. As it waxes worse and worse, our lights will only grow brighter and brighter! We must be available and a vessel that can be used to light the way for others.

  19. 21 Thy people also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified.

    When Gos is your father , he blesses those that are his children. We must work for that blessing, but oh how sweet it will be. To one day be with him in heaven and glorify him for eternity.

  20. 1 Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of theLord is risen upon thee.

    18 Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise.

    19 The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the Lordshall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory.

    20 Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the Lord shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended.

    ….There will be a time…

  21. Returning Home

    Sons and daughters live “afar” off because Babylon overtakes God’s people and forces them to exile. Isaiah looks beyond their captivity, though, and predicts a later time when the Israelites return to Jerusalem. He paints a jubilant picture of men marching home, carrying children on their shoulders. This return marks the beginning of new wealth and prosperity for a belraguered nation.

  22. 1 Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of theLord is risen upon thee.

    20+ years ago The Lord begin to shine in my life. I want to allow the Holy Ghost to rise in my life everyday so that men and women will be able to see their way out of the darkness in this world.

  23. A soft answer turns away wrath.

    8 Who are these that fly as a cloud, and as the doves to their windows?

    Gentleness and peace are fruits of the spirit. When there is chaos, lack of peace, and harsh times then this is an indicator that we are not led by the spirit.

    There are two manifestations of God’s spirit in this passage. The first is a cloud.

    In the wilderness journeys the spirit of God led them as a cloud by day, and a fire by night.
    At Jesus baptism The Lord experienced the spirit of God descending upon him like a dove.

    If we are like Jesus, and filled with his spirit we will have the same attributes.

    Gentleness and Peace

  24. The sick will go to the hospital

    4 Lift up thine eyes round about, and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to thee: thy sons shall come from far, and thy daughters shall be nursed at thy side.

    The time is near when backsliden sons and daughters will once again be in the house of God. It is a promise from him. But this scripture tells us that when they come they will need some help. They will need all if us to be supportive and nurse them back to health. The only way to do that is to get them to pray. Get them to read the word. Jesus said there is not good, save God so we have to get them connected with him. Our hospital is open for business

  25. Making A Place

    13 The glory of Lebanon shall come unto thee, the fir tree, the pine tree, and the box together, to beautify the place of my sanctuary; and I will make the place of my feet glorious.

    Romans 10:14-15
    14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? 15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

    God will do special things if we will make a sanctified place for the gospel in our lives. The place of His feet traces the path for ours to follow with His good news. It’s not enough to receive and have a burden, we must put feet with our faith.

    Ephesians 6:14-15
    14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace

  26. The sun will never set or your moon go down. I, the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your days of sorrow will come to an end. I will quickly do all this says the Lord.

    The Lord says when the time comes he’ll quickly Rebuilt Jerusalem and will treat us with mercy. Jerusalem angered the Lord and he punished Jerusalem because of it.

    God forgave our sins and we should too.

  27. Arise, Shine!

    1 Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of theLord is risen upon thee.

    Arise means that you get up
    Shine is like the glory of God or the brightness of the sun
    Light is brightness, goodness, truth

    Matthew 5:14 (KJV)
    Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
    John 9:5 (KJV) 5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

    So if Jesus was the light of the world and you think about his death …

    You might get–Jesus is the light of the world
    We are to let him shine in our lives unto all the nations
    Arise–Get up, Jesus arose from the grave. We too must arise up out of this world and shine

  28. Isaiah 61
    Robbing God

    For I the Lord love judgment, I hate robbery for burnt offering; and I will direct their work in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them. (Isaiah 61:8 KJV)

    I just can’t get away from this verse. God hates robbery for sacrifices. Robbery of things, money, time, and people. Things that we keep from God might be gods to us and they are definitely things that we are robbing from God. Then when we decide to give a little to God how do you think he sees it? Probably not very well huh?

    For the Lord thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God. (Deuteronomy 4:24 KJV)

    Think before you try to steal from God.

  29. 14 The sons also of them that afflicted thee shall come bending unto thee; and all they that despised thee shall bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet; and they shall call thee; The city of the Lord, The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.

  30. For brass I will bring gold, and for iron I will bring silver, and for wood brass, and for stones iron: I will also make thy officers peace, and thine exactors righteousness.

  31. 11 Therefore thy gates shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; that men may bring unto thee the forces of the Gentiles, and that their kings may be brought.

  32. The sons also of them that afflicted thee shall come bending unto thee; and all they that despised thee shall bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet; and they shall call thee; The city of the Lord, The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.

    The glory of Lebanon shall come unto thee, the fir tree, the pine tree, and the box together, to beautify the place of my sanctuary; and I will make the place of my feet glorious.

    herefore thy gates shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; that men may bring unto thee the forces of the Gentiles, and that their kings may be brought

    Then thou shalt see, and flow together, and thine heart shall fear, and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be converted unto thee, the forces of the Gentiles shall come unto thee

  33. Isaiah 61 Post for Aug. 29, 2013
    Mourning is over for His Joy is coming.

    3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.

    Psalm 30:5 For his anger is but for a moment,
    and his favor is for a lifetime.[c]
    Weeping may tarry for the night,
    but joy comes with the morning.

    The Joy is coming, The Joy is coming and all for His Glory. All negative reports will fade, only good reports from the Lord are to come. Tear are left behind, and Joy will adorn our faces with smiles and laughter, we will spring and jump for the heaviness will be gone, we will PRAISE and SHOUT for His Glory has come with Joy and Gladness.

    Thank you Jesus Christ for your Joy and Love is everlasting.

  34. 20 Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the Lord shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended.

    This great light of mine, I’m going to let it shine. The Lord will light the way for you.

  35. Have Mercy OH Lord I pray, upon your choosen ones!

    10 And the sons of strangers shall build up thy walls, and their kings shall minister unto thee: for in my wrath I smote thee, but in my favour have I had mercy on thee.

    The nation/kingdom that will not do what? AMEN………..

    12 For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted.

    There’s only one KING, I’m even interested in and would like to be continually nursed by him and by the milk/or meat of his word!……………

    16 Thou shalt also suck the milk of the Gentiles, and shalt suck the breast of kings: and thou shalt know that I the Lordam thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.

    In this next verse, I would love to see the completion this day. No more violence, and my walls called = ?, and my gates called = ?

    18 Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise.

    “Be Blessed”…………………………………………………….

  36. Verse 22 NLT “The smallest family will become a thousand people, and the tiniest group will become a mighty nation. At the right time, I, the Lord, will make it happen.” In this go, go, now, now world we live in; it is sometimes hard to believe that you have to actually wait on something. But, oh how worth the wait it is, to wait upon the Lord. God has everything in line and in process, even if we don’t see it. For there is a time and place for everything to come to pass as He has purposed it.
