Leaving The Land Of Darkness For The Light Of God’s Presence

Today’s Word of Encouragement from Wayne: "The people who walk in darkness will see a great light; those who live in a dark land, the light will shine on them. You shall multiply the nation, you shall increase their gladness; they will be glad in Your presence" Isaiah 9: 2-3. I am "glad" for our Lord God’s presence, aren’t you? I am so glad for God’s "great light" for it is in His light, in the light of His presence, that I find my "gladness." Yes, praise God, it has become true for us in Jesus Christ that, "they will be glad in Your presence." We do live in a dark land. The light that exists in this world, apart from God, is darkness to God. God’s light is such a "great light," that His li

How We Have Been Given This Great Gladness

Today's Word of Encouragement from Wayne: "Then in that day the nations will resort to the root of Jesse, Who will stand as a signal for the peoples; and His resting place will be glorious" Isaiah 11;10 Praise our awesome God because this future "day," which God spoke of through Isaiah, is now upon us. Yes, our resurrected Lord, Jesus Christ, the son of David, is "the root of Jesse." The apostle Paul actually quoted this verse, from Isaiah 11:10, in his letter to the church at Rome, specifically in reference to Jesus Christ (Romans 15:12). Jesus Christ, right now, is God’s "signal for the peoples" and everyone, from every nation, is welcome to come to Him, for "in repentance and rest you wil

How We Have Been Given This Great Gladness

Today's Word of Encouragement from Wayne: "The people who walk in darkness will see a great light; those who live in a dark land, the light will shine on them. You shall multiply the nation, you shall increase their gladness; they will be glad in Your presence" Isaiah 9: 2-3 Walk in the light of Christ today, my brothers and sisters, and He will Personally "increase [your] gladness." Even in this passage from Isaiah, which we have been looking at for three days now, it is clearly stated that this wonderful and "great light," which was to be granted, is none other than our Lord Jesus Christ Himself. The expressed reason given as to why this light and gladness would occur is stated in verse si

Leaving The Land Of Darkness For The Light Of God’s Presence

Today's Word of Encouragement from Wayne: "The people who walk in darkness will see a great light; those who live in a dark land, the light will shine on them.

See His Great Light & Be Glad In His Presence

Today's Word of Encouragement from Wayne: "The people who walk in darkness will see a great light; those who live in a dark land, the light will shine on them. You shall multiply the nation, you shall increase their gladness; they will be glad in Your presence" Isaiah 9: 2-3 Hallelujah, beloved Christian and priest unto your Lord, let God’s "great light" lead you into His presence today, so you may be filled with gladness. God has shined His great light upon us through Jesus Christ, Who has declared Himself to be "the light of this world."

Thanking God For "Something New"

Today's Word of Encouragement from Wayne: "Do not call to mind the former things, or ponder things of the past. Behold, I will do something new, now it will spring forth; will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, rivers in the desert... to give drink to My chosen people. The people whom I have formed for Myself will declare My praise" Isaiah 43: 18-21 Praise You Lord God! Yesterday I shared with you this word of prophecy from Isaiah concerning how we, the body of Christ, are presently the people whom God has formed for Himself. What a joy for us to know that our God has formed and fitted us, perfectly, for Himself, to be filled with His Spirit and His word, t

Declaring His Praise

Today's Word of Encouragement from Wayne: "The people whom I formed for Myself will declare My praise" Isaiah 43: 21 Declare your Lord’s praise today and rejoice in Him, beloved child of God and priest unto the Lord. It is only the people who know they have been formed for the Lord, "for Myself;" these are the ones who want to and will declare, faithfully, regularly, and joyfully, the bountiful praises of our God. When we realize that God has formed us for Himself and, in love, has drawn us to Himself to be born again through the New Covenant blood of Christ, that’s when we begin declaring His praises, and we will never stop. If our faith becomes a technological exercise in theology, then th

A Joy Made Full

Today's Word of Encouragement from Wayne: "The foreigners who join themselves to the Lord, to minister to Him, and to love the Name of the Lord, to be His servants... even those I will bring to My holy mountain and make them joyful in My house of prayer" Isaiah 56: 6-7 Hallelujah, beloved child of God, our Lord is looking for people who will: minister to Him, love His Name, and be His servants. When God sees a person who has this heart, for the Lord Himself, God brings that person into His house. In His house, with our Lord, is where our ministering to Him is perfected and fully realized. In His house, with our Lord, is where our love for His Name and service to Him become highly personalize

Joyful In My House Of Prayer

Yes, priest of God (1st Peter 2:9), ministering to the Lord is always your sure path into God’s house, into His Own presence, with joy and love. I am a foreigner who has joined himself to my Lord. As Scripture says, "Remember that you were at that time separate fro

Delighting Yourself In The Everlasting Covenant of Christ

Today's Word of Encouragement from Wayne: "Ho! Every one who thirsts, come to the waters; and you who have no money come, buy and eat. Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost. Why do you spend money for what is not bread, and your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good and delight yourself in abundance. Incline your ear and come to Me. Listen, that you may live: and I will make an everlasting covenant with you according to the faithful mercies shown to David" Isa 55: 2-3 The apostle Paul quoted this text from Isaiah, in support of Jesus, when he spoke in the synagogue at Pisidian Antioch (Acts 13).

Today's Word of Encouragement from Wayne: "‘I will appoint you as a covenant to the people, as a light to the nations, to open blind eyes, to bring out prisoners from the dungeon and those who dwell in darkness from the prison. Behold the former things have come to pass, now I declare new things; before they spring forth I proclaim them to you.’ Sing to the Lord a new song. Sing His praise from the end of the earth!" Isaiah 42: 6-7, 9-10 Bless God; Christ, our covenant, is intended to be "light to the nations," opening "blind eyes," bringing prisoners and "those who dwell in darkness" out from the dungeon and prison of sin and into the light of Him.

Isaiah 42: 6-7, 9-10 Once more, in biblical prophecy, we see Christ our "Lord" and "priest forever" (Psalm 110: 1&4) being spoken of in terms of establishing a new covenant, through which we are saved and become priests to our God (revelation 1: 5-6), singing a "new song" of the

You Will Be Spoken Of As Ministers Of Our God

And I will faithfully give them their recompense and make an everlasting covenant with them" Isaiah 61: 1-2, 6, 8 All Christians, I hope, are familiar with the first part of this prophecy from Isaiah, for these are the words which Jesus spoke, in the synagogue in Nazareth (Luke 4:18-21), when He began
