Isaiah 60 King James Version (KJV) 60 Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord 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. 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. Isaiah 60 King James Version (KJV) 60 Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord 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. 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.

Isaiah 60-2, ‘’ For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall rise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.’’ KJV.

Gross darkness the people, resembling Christians living in sinful world. Sin is the gross darkness. Take an example of fish that live in the ocean, they live in salty waters. But when cooked, they dont have that salt, you have to put salt in the fish meal for it to become tasty. Same as christians, we live in a world with gross darkness, but we do not contain the darkness in us or live in the darkness. For we are the light. Mathew 1-21, ‘’ And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS:, for he shall save his people from their sins. ‘’ KJV.Jesus came so that we may be saved from sins. He did not come for any other thing. Fasting is a spiritual discipline. It is a sacrifice we make to the Lord. All sins during the time of fast, are distanced from us when we fast. Daniel was found 10 times better after fasting. During this time, we may feel many other things , such as weakness, dizziness, but do not stop, you are sacrificing unto the Lord. When we are fasting, there is a mistery. When you make a decision that you want to fast, there is a spirit that is released from the Lord, a spirit of excellence.

2 corinthians 7-1 ‘’Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting the holiness in the fear of God.’’ KJV. Let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit. When we come to church, we bath and wash our bodies. But there is that which is left uncleansed. The filthiness of the spirit, the sins we committed. Regardless of how educated you are, you may not be cleansed off your sins by education. We are fasting because we want the sins to be cleansed from us. Fasting is another method God uses to destroy the enemy. Jesus after starting the ministry, he fasted 40 days and 40 nights, but he was God . Harman was defeated by prayer and fasting. And eventually he dug his own grave. As the christians, lets be wise like the snake and be righteous like the dove. Snakes only move out during the night. They are the most hated animals , but they live amongst us. Snakes establish residence within our households, but you dont see them in the day. The bible says, be wise like the snake, but it doesnt say have an attitude of snakes. Snakes have a bad attitude, they dont move along with their offspring, and they usually ill what they don’t eat.

Ephesians 5-26 ‘’That he may sanctify and cleanse it with washing of water by the word. ‘’KJV. Another way we cleanse our spirit, is the word of God. The commandments that say do not hate, do not commit fornication, are the word b cleansing us from filthiness through washing by the word. Anointing makes us beautiful , not our dressing. Isiah 1-15:16 ‘’And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are are full of blood. 16 wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do eveil;’’ KJV. There are neighbours who live amongst us. They dont read the bible, but they see our day to day lives. What do they see when they see us. What do they learn? Can they make a decision to follow us to our church because they see the holi life we live and follow us?Isiah 52-11, whoever is seated in spiritual filthiness , should depart because you misrepresent Jesus to those who are watching your life.

Psalms 34:15 The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry. 16 The face of the LORD is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. 17 The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. 18 The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. 19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all. 20 He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken. 21 Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate. KJV

Turn unto the Lord and repent from your sins, he will surely attend to the prayers of the righteous.

STAY BLESSED AMEN.
