Isaiah 9:2, 6-7
The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned. For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this.
I saw thousands of people covering the Earth. They were standing together and looking towards a huge, lit candle. As they watched, this candle was raised above the Earth, higher and higher. And as it went up the light from it covered more of the Earth. Then I saw another candle – regular sized – in a Christmas lantern, and people bringing their unlit candles to it to be lit.
And our Lord Jesus Christ said, ‘I am the light of the world and into the darkness I have come. See how I illuminate the Earth! See how I transform darkness! I was born to release my light and shift the Earth into its destiny. To see it transformed into the glorious creation my Father intended and to see you transformed and become the glorious creation you were destined to be. See how my light in you increases! See how you subdue the darkness with my light! It cannot be overcome!
Release my light, my children, for all to see. Do not hide it or cover it. Let it Shine! This is why I was born! This is why you were born!
Remember, my children, that I am no longer that baby in the manger. I came to bring you light and cause you to be light in this world. I came to take back from the enemy that which had been given away. I reclaimed my rightful inheritance, YOU! Now that you are mine, I release my full authority to you to rule and reign in this life and to establish my government in the earth NOW!
Matthew 16:19 (ASV)
I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
When Jesus spoke again to the people he said, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.
You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.
