I had just laid down to sleep when the Lord began to speak this word to me.
What makes the night beautiful, daughter?
The lights against it, Lord.
Why is that beautiful?
The contrast, Lord. The dark backdrop makes the light appear that much brighter.
Attention is drawn to that light. It is impossible to stare at the darkness and ignore the beauty of the light which pierces it, right?
You are to be that light. All My children are to be that light. In days coming, My light shall rest upon you, My children. It shall rest upon you and shine through those of you who have made yourselves ready to do My will.
Now is the time you have been preparing for. The enemy is preparing to release an attack of untold proportions on My people and parts of his plan will shock you. Those who have not been preparing, who have not spent time in My word, who are not walking in My ways, shall be caught off guard when this attack is launched. They will not understand how to survive in the time coming. I have left them weapons but they have not learned to use them.
It is not My desire that you should be caught off guard, yet so many of you take My words lightly. The enemy has deceived you into thinking there is time without end and that is a lie. Did I not say in My word, watch and pray? Yet so many have fallen into a deep, comfortable sleep. The churches have lulled them to sleep and they know not the enemy is lurking just outside the door, waiting.
Isaiah 60:1-2: 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.
