RIGHTEOUS ONES WILL BE LIGHT TO THE WORLD

Isaiah 48:17-22, 17 Thus saith the
LORD, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the LORD thy God which teacheth
thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go. 18 O that
thou hadst hearkened to my commandments! then had thy peace been as a river, and
thy righteousness as the waves of the sea: 19 Thy seed also had been as the
sand, and the offspring of thy bowels like the gravel thereof; his name should
not have been cut off nor destroyed from before me. 20 Go ye forth of Babylon,
flee ye from the Chaldeans, with a voice of singing declare ye, tell this, utter
it even to the end of the earth; say ye, The LORD hath redeemed his servant
Jacob. 21 And they thirsted not when he led them through the deserts: he caused
the waters to flow out of the rock for them: he clave the rock also, and the
waters gushed out. 22 There is no peace, saith the LORD, unto the wicked.
The fear of Me will come upon the land, because the inhabitants therein
hearkened not unto My voice, and kept not My commandments. I am God, and there
is no other. But My righteous ones that have kept My commandments, and have
hearkened unto My voice, I will keep them, for I have hidden them in the cleft
of the rock. They have no fear, but the peace that passes all understanding
encompasses them round about for they know Me. I am their assurance.
While their will be lack for the wicked, My righteous ones will have plenty. I
will even make provision for them, as I have done over the ages. And I will do
it as I have done before, I will even make supernatural provision for these that
I have hidden in the cleft of the rock. They will know no lack. I will make My
own known over the face of the earth when my judgments are in the land. And all
will see, and all will know that they have a God that is able to provide plenty
for them, when there is wanton in the land.
Did I not send Joseph to the land of Egypt so that many might be saved alive?
Did I not send Elijah to a widow, whose cruise did not cease to overflow with
provision? Oh how My people still put limitations on Me, and oh how I desire
those that have expectation of Me.
There is nothing too hard for Me. I am the God of the impossible, and I change
not. I am the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. And I will show Myself strong
on behalf of My people for they will be the head and not the tail. Oh, they have
thought that this applies only to monetary gain, but I tell you that it far
exceeds what they have thought.
If the fields fail to yield their crops and there are times without harvest, My
people will be fed, and have plenty. Some will say, “Oh how can these things
be?” When the children of Israel were in the wilderness, they never missed a
meal. They had plenty, and so it will be with My people. I am God and in Me
there is no lack. Did not My Son feed 5,000 people with two loaves and five
fishes? I am the God of increase and multiplication.
Ah, when I said that I would make My people the light of the world, they did not
understand the entirety of that statement. My people will be the haves, and the
wicked the have nots. And I will make My righteous ones known by the divine
provision that I make for them even when there is pestilence and famine in the
land. And the provision that I will make for them will be touched by My Glory
for all to see.
My righteous ones will be led forth with joy, and be led forth with peace: the
mountains and the hills shall break forth before them into singing,, and all he
trees of the field shall clap their hands before these. And there will be
everlasting joy in their hearts.
Rejoice oh My righteous ones, for I will show Myself strong on your behalf. But
the wicked, those that have chosen their own way, kept not My commandments and
obeyed not the voice of their God, I will cast down, and cast out, and there
will be lack and wanton in their lives.
Signs and wonders are ordained for My righteous ones. Beyond their wildest
expectations will I manifest Myself to them, and all that I will do for them
will be touched by My Glory. Signs and wonders in the land.
