Last Friday being the last one in the month, we had corporate prayer and worship experience at KIN church and I was unable to make it to church. Not to lose out completely, I then decided to live stream the first worship session I could land on given that I had enough data. I successfully landed on a good one and below is what I learned as regards “Revelation” that day;
Revelation is the key to progress. It precedes realization.
The scripture below was the highlight of that evening and I can attest to the truth that I got a different understanding of it just as the speaker had encouraged us to expect so before sharing about it;
Isaiah 60:1-5 ,
“Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. 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. The Gentiles shall come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising. “Lift up your eyes all around, and see: They all gather together, they come to you; Your sons shall come from afar, And your daughters shall be nursed at your side. Then you shall see and become radiant, And your heart shall swell with joy; Because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you, The wealth of the Gentiles shall come to you.”
First and foremost, it was emphasized that “things cannot happen in reality if they do not first happen in your mind.” You literally become what you see.
“Your current life is simply a result of your current level of revelation received.”
And any change you are going to make requires revelation..
With revelation comes the glory of God. The term “Glory” can be best understood through its opposite which is ‘Shame’ as highlighted in; Psalm 4:2,
How long, O you sons of men, Will you turn my glory to shame? How long will you love worthlessness And seek falsehood? Selah
Glory is the opposite of shame. One of the causes of shame is poverty and we ought to work against it with all we have. It is time to pursue your own destiny!
I was also reminded that it is not the anointed that inherit the glory but the wise as stated in Proverbs 3:35,” The wise shall inherit glory, But shame shall be the legacy of fools.” This therefore means that we need to stop following anointing and start to follow character. Remember,
A gift is not a sign of maturity! Character is.
The statement “…for your light has come” as paraphrased literally brings about revelation. We are the light of The world basically because we have revelation of ‘what should be‘ according to our creator as it is seen in Matthew 5:14-16
“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”
We therefore ought to ‘so shine‘ in whatever God has called us to do. Let’s quit just shining.
Finally, God Is the one who opens our eyes to see as we ought to. For example, when you have a revelation of purpose, you are not caught up in nay saying. You conceive God’s kind of creativity and you make it a reality here on earth.
God’s true nature in you starts manifesting through revelation thereby letting our light to #so shine like God intended. Knowledge call it revelation is what sets us apart. What you know determines your value in a given season and remember that yesterday’s revelation is not going to take you into tomorrow because His mercies are new every morning. The difference between you and the people you left behind is the stuff you know and they don’t.
With revelation you are able to have influence on earth for Kingdom advancement!
May God open the eyes of our hearts to see the mysteries in His Word and how they apply to our daily lives. Amen.
We receive your Revelation Oh Lord and we shall not remain the same. Amen.
