Scripture: Isaiah 60:1-5

Isaiah 60:1-5 says, “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.” There is another Isaiah passage where the concept of reaping the spoils of the ungodly is presented again. It is a double promise. What should we do with this promise? We need to start sowing it, expecting it and believing it. We need to spoil adversarial cities and nations, ungoldly people and groups. We need the provision to bring to pass the harvest of souls. That is what is being promised here. It is prophetically promised and we need to say, ‘Yes, Lord, we are after it!’ Will we sow it in our hearts, tend the soil and build the faith to bring it to pass? I trust we will, in Jesus’ name!
