About This Episode:

Come out of the darkness and into the light!

Isaiah 60:2 describes the state of the world: “Darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples.” The earth is corrupted, and the truth has become obscured. Dictatorial spirits try to force us what to think and what to believe. Additionally, collective fears have arisen about wars, food shortages, other shortages, etc. 

Revival can break out when darkness covers our world and humanity seems to be at its lowest point. 

Signs of Revival: 

  • Interest in God increases. 
  • Spending more time with God.
  • Want to go to church and enjoy it.
  • Lose interest in worldly things.
  • Get your joy and gladness back. 
  • Life becomes more prosperous.
  • Separate from the world because the Spirit of the Lord is on you.

God gives us purpose and reason to hope. “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you” (Isaiah 60:1). There’s a place for YOU in advancing the Kingdom of God and bringing glory to Him on this earth. Once we return to the Lord, pursue Him, and become revived, we should be able to speak to that darkness and make it flee!
