15 Jul How Bright Is Jesus?
S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
The moon will be dismayed, the sun ashamed; for the Lord Almighty will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, and before its elders–with great glory.
This is an obvious prophetic word from Isaiah concerning New Jerusalem. It will be the King of Kings and Lord of Lords who rules in that new heavenly place known as the New Jerusalem. It’s not so much that the light of the moon and the sun will dim or go out, as much as this is a side-by-side look at the brilliance of Jesus in comparison to the bright lights of the heavens. It causes one to ask, “How Bright Is Jesus?”
This prophecy has to do with happenings after the Rapture. It has to do with events following the Tribulation. Finally, it occurs after the Battle of Armageddon when Jesus defeats the forces of hell itself. When John saw New Jerusalem coming down from heaven, he reported that the city has no need of the sun or the moon to bring it light because the glory of God lights the place up. He said the way it’s lit is through the Lamb of God (Jesus), who is the lamp for the light (Rev. 21:23). Can you imagine the light of Jesus? No wonder He said in John 8:12, “I am the light of the world!” We’ve always interpreted that to mean that Jesus is the irrefutable spiritual light of all the world. However, when you compare the prophecies of Isaiah and what John saw in the Revelation, Jesus really is the LIGHT that will eventually light the whole place up so the sun and the moon will be insignificant in comparison. So “How Bright Is Jesus?” Really Bright! I mean, I can’t even begin to describe it.
I’m glad that wherever You are, there is light. I’m so blessed this AM that I am walking daily in Your light and have no need to hide in the dark corners of this life to avoid You. No! I want more of You, Jesus! I love Your light! Amen
