Day 36 - Arise, Shine!

Be A Light Bearer

We begin week six; Let Your Light Shine! We are on day 36 – 36 represents the adversary / enemy. “The number thirty-six in Hebrew was written with the letters lamed (authority) and vav (a nail, peg, that which joins, or the conjunction “and”). These two letters in themselves do not tell us what is being joined with (or by) the power of divine authority. But when we see that thirty-six is the number associated with His adversaries (or enemies) and how God deals with them, the meaning becomes clearer.” [Quote from The Biblical Meaning of Numbers 1-40 by Dr. Stephen E. Jones]

Jesus was the ultimate vav – He was nailed to a tree, retrieved the keys from hell, rose again and gave us all power and authority. Now we are the ‘vav – peg’ God’s uses in the earth.

The Lord says, this is a year to shine forth, to come out of isolation, out of obscurity into the light. It's a year for the glory of the Lord to be seen upon us. We are the crowned vav we are being given the opportunity to take the scepter of the Lord which represents his authority and wield it upon the earth.

Isaiah 60:1-3ARISE [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you--rise to a new life]! Shine (be radiant with the glory of the Lord), for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you! For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and dense darkness [all] peoples, but the Lord shall arise upon you [O Jerusalem], and His glory shall be seen on you. And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.

  • Shine H215 to be (causatively make) luminous (literally and metaphorically): break of day, glorious, kindle, (be, en-, give, show) light (-en, -ened), set on fire, shine.

My Light Bearers, Arise, Release the Light, Display My glory, your brightness will draw nations (people groups) to you. And you will bring them to Me and I will manifest My glory in their midst; hope will rise, healing and deliverance will flow and many will be set free as you become a lighthouse to a lost world in this hour says the Lord.

Read: Isaiah 60

Take Action: Use Is. 60 as a pray for your life and pray it over this nation.

Declare: This is a year to Shine Forth, for things to be illuminated...

* I will shine forth / display the glory of the Lord in the midst of a dark world.

Light will shine in the darkness; those things that have been hidden in the dark in this nation will come to light.

Releasing the Light,
