Summary: Verse 2 of Isaiah 60, gives the reader more of a grip about the time and season of this glorious light. It will be in a day and time of great darkness, and a deep darkness among the people.
Days Of The Holy Spirit and Deception.
Glynda Lomax wrote, I live in Arkansas. I love when autumn comes and fall leaves drift down on autumn breezes. But in Arkansas, you have to be careful about those leaves on the ground because some of them conceal serpents.
There are lots of Copperhead Snakes here. Copperheads are venomous Pit Vipers that strike you as soon as they sense heat when any part of your body comes near them. And they blend perfectly in with the beautiful fall leaves. when these snakes sense a predator is near, they will sometimes freeze in place, making them blend in even better, and making it tougher to discern the danger.
She writes, they don’t even have the good manners to rattle at you like rattlesnakes in Texas do.
So be careful of those serpents that hide behind beauty, waiting for a chance to strike at you and bring destruction. It only takes one step in the wrong direction.
Isaiah 60:1-2NKJV Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. 2 For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the Lord will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you.
Isaiah 60:1, predicts the purity and enlargement of the church to come. A time when the church grows and gathers a great awareness of her own wealth and love unto their God.
Verse 2 of Isaiah 60, gives the reader more of a grip about the time and season of this glorious light.
It will be in a day and time of great darkness, and a deep darkness among the people.
The greatness of this scripture is found in Isaiah 60:2bNLT…but the glory of the Lord rises and appears over you.
As believers are faithfully living within the insides of God’s Holy Word they will be totally protected. P.H
Remember Peter wrote about what the prophet Joel said would transpire and come into fruition.
We’ve seen portions of these verse fulfilled but there’s more to come. Acts 2:15-21NKJV 15 For these are not drunk, as you suppose, since it is only the third hour of the day. 16 But this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: 17 ‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams. 18 And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; And they shall prophesy. 19 I will show wonders in heaven above and signs in the earth beneath: Blood and fire and vapor of smoke. 20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, And the moon into blood, Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord. 21 And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the Lord Shall be saved.’
An end-time revival could be underway as I speak. A revival of closeness, a revival of love, A revival of community, A revival of the Holy Spirit’s goodness, love, joy and peace. A revival of prayer, and holiness.
However be aware that during this time of Holy Spirit, great darkness, deception and lies will transpire.
Let’s read verse 21 together—And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the Lord Shall be saved.’
“In the middle of this great darkness let us always remember individuals can still be saved!” P.H
You and I are living in strange times. Approximately 2,000 years ago, the Scriptures prophesied of this end-time delusion.
Paul wrote to Timothy, 1 Timothy 4:1-2NLT Now the Holy Spirit tells us clearly that in the last times some will turn away from the true faith; they will follow deceptive spirits and teachings that come from demons. 2 These people are hypocrites and liars, and their consciences are dead.
Turning away from truth means to turn to anything else that will always be inferior.
In World War 2, It was the German Nazi’s who murdered millions of Jewish people. Nazi doctors performed sex change operations, just to add pain and suffering to the Jews. These doctors killed thousands on their operating tables, these doctors never thought a minute, that is was unusually punishment. I could go on and on about the suffering through dismemberment of limbs, and reproductive systems. It’s some pretty gross murderous stuff.
Again, 1 Timothy 4:1-2AMP But the [Holy] Spirit explicitly and unmistakably declares that in later times some will turn away from the faith, paying attention instead to deceitful and seductive spirits and doctrines of demons, 2 [misled] by the hypocrisy of liars whose consciences are seared as with a branding iron [leaving them incapable of ethical functioning],
