Stand Here and Let The Light In ~ John 3:16

Stand here quietly before the Lord as I remind you of all the great things the Lord has done for you and your ancestors.” 1 Sam. 12:7

1 Sam. 12:16 (RSV) “Now therefore stand still and see this great thing, which the Lord will do before your eyes.”

Exodus 14:13 And Moses said to the people, “Fear not, stand firm, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will work for you today; for the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall never see again.” This is referring to wiping out the Egyptians with a mighty, crashing wave as they pursued the Israelites fleeing from Egypt. This final crashing wave was so unexpected, so swift, so final! When God acts who can reverse it?

He is calling the ecclesia, His church to stop out of the box of its four walls to get a little crazy and speak love and encouragement. He is calling us to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. Revival needs to come! Praise and worship Him! Light the fire of hope in your heart and help someone else rise in Christ’s hope! God is bringing revival! I want to be a part of it. How about you?

I challenge you today: will you share the gospel at least one time today? Share it 1x a day! How? Speak it forward, on your social media posts. Speak it to a co-worker. Share with a family member or a friend. Ask the Lord who you are to share it with today! I bet you can come up with other creative ways! Let’s start a revival one person at a time! 1 person- 1 a day!

Here’s a simple way to give the gospel message- it’s as easy to remember as ABC.

Aacknowledgeaccept that Jesus is God’s only Son. (John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”)

Bbelieve He died on the cross for your sins. (Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” and Philippians 2:8 “And He humbled Himself even further, going so far as actually to die a criminal’s death on a cross. ) Believe He was resurrected (restored to life from God, His Father) from the grave after three days of lying in His tomb.

Cconfess that Jesus is Lord overall and you want Him to be the Lord of your life.

Eph. 5:14 (The MSG) exhorts us in these last of the last days, “Don’t waste your time on useless work, mere busywork, the barren pursuits of darkness. Expose these things for the sham they are. It’s a scandal when people waste their lives on things they must do in the darkness where no one will see. Rip the cover off those frauds and see how attractive they look in the light of Christ. Wake up from your sleep, Climb out of your coffins; Christ will show you the light! So watch

For this reason He says, “Awake, sleeper, And arise from the dead, And Christ will shine [as dawn] upon you and give you light.” (Eph. 5:14 AMP)

Church! Let’s wake up! Let’s rise up! Jesus is coming back soon! (No, I do not have a date or a time. Only God, the Father knows!) Make the most of every chance you get. These are desperate times!

Rev. 1:1 (TPT) shares, “This is the unveiling of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to share with his loving servants what must occur swiftly.” The unveiling means when Jesus comes back for His followers, He will be seen or unveiled!

Rev. 1:1 the footnotes of the Passion Translation Bible explain it this way: this does not necessarily mean “soon” from the writer’s perspective, but that once the time comes it will quickly happen. The Greek phrase en tachos (similar to “tachometer”) means that once something starts, it will take place swiftly.” A tachometer is an instrument measuring revolution per minute, as of an engine. It can also mean various instruments for measuring or indicating velocity or speed, as of a machine, a river, or the blood. (www.dictionary.com)

 The red blood of the Lamb of Jesus has been poured out for yours and my salvation. Let’s share with others the Great News of the gospel today!

I have heard different pastors say in this time of history,  “We are in a red line moment.”

God was calling the people, and He calls us today:  Rise up my people! He calls us to be taller than your surrounding landscape! Be braver than what you see! He is always going to do something bigger and unexpected! Go and share the lifesaving message of our Lord Jesus! He IS coming back, so let’s take as many people with us!

When the people of Israel saw the mighty power that the Lord had unleashed against the Egyptians, they were filled with awe before Him! They put their faith in the Lord and in His servant Moses.

What about today? What do you see happening around you? Any injustice or evil will come crashing to an end when Jesus comes into the scene!

Ephesians 6:12 emphatically states we are not fighting against people, government, or a virus. “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”

Invite Him into your heavy challenges, despair, and disappointment! He’s got you! We can have confidence in Him! You can come up higher and over your difficulties in Him! It’s so important to do so…so we can rise up higher and share the gospel today! One a day begins a Revival!

Proverbs 3:6 (TPT) “Trust in the Lord completely, and do not rely on your own opinions. With all your heart rely on Him to guide you, and He will lead you in every decision you make. Become intimate with Him in whatever you do, and He will lead you wherever you go.”  

 #LetHisLightIN    #John316Revival    #entachosmoment #1aday

 “In that day the Lord of hosts will be a crown of glory, and a diadem of beauty, to the remnant of his people; and a spirit of justice to Him who sits in judgment, and strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate.” (Isaiah 28:5-6 RSV) Let Him be your strength as you share the gospel! Have no fear of man!

It’s time church! Let’s start a revival by sharing with 1 person a day…or more! God will bless your efforts and lead you wherever you go!

Love and grace,

Holly

One thought on “Stand Here and Let The Light In ~ John 3:16

  1. Holly,

    I commented on your blog site and mentioned my new book which will be published on Amazon hopefully in the next couple of weeks. I also mentioned you can see there cover on my website. However, I think I commented from my old blog address which is still active but the wrong site. I have another site called “The Light Writer” at http://www.thelightwriter.net and that is the sight with the cover of my book. I apologize if you were directed to my old blog site. By the way, as an added note, I am trying to change my web site to boblankford.com and it will be my author web page. Once again I do enjoy your blogs and thank you for your friendship

    Blessings!

    Bob Lankford
