February 2018 Newsletter Subject: Arise, Shine; For Thy Light Is Come

“Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.” [Isaiah 60:1-2]
“For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.” [II Corinthians 4:6]
“And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday:” [Isaiah 58:10]
“Now, my text, for this morning, is an odd word: Shalom. Shalom, in the Hebrew, means "peace." And that's what I say to the Church this morning, "Shalom!" That's peace. In Finnish it's called Jumalan rauha, which means "God's peace" upon you. Rauha. God, see, God's peace, shalom. My new-year's Message is to the Church elected in Jesus Christ, for 1964. Not--not just the church groups; but the Elect, the Lady, the Lady of--of the Church, Christ's Bride, see, that's who I'm addressing. We're facing here, in our two subjects that we read, the two Scriptures, rather, a very contrast, one to the other. In Isaiah, it says, "Arise, and shine, for the glory of God has come upon you. The Light is here." And then the very next verse, he says, "Gross darkness is upon this people." And then when we are in a mixtury of Light and darkness, and then my address to the Church is "shalom, peace," let's find out what it's all about, see. We are facing this year, with both darkness and Light. We are... the world is in one of the most chaotic times of darkness that it's ever stood in; and yet it's standing in, again, the most blessed Light that it ever did shine in.[64-0112  Shalom, Sierra Vista AZ]
The difference is just like it was in the beginning, when there was gross darkness upon the earth. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the water and said, "Let there be light." And God separated the light from the darkness. And I believe that we are now living in that hour again, that when God is separating Light from darkness, and He's pressing it to the other side of the world, that the Light might be made manifest. And we are... Then, the--the Church, the reason I'd say "Shalom" to them, is because that it's God's Peace. That's what I want to bring to you this morning, for the new year's, not looking back, but we're looking forward to the breaking of a new day. Until, there is something great laying ahead of us, where the years has been the joy that we've looked forward to, the pressing, coming of the great Light. And now we can see it breaking over the horizona, horizonal realm, it's breaking between mortal and immortality. We see it breaking between heavens and earth, from an earthbound sickness and troubled world, into a bright shining day of an immortal Life and an immortal body and an immortal earth that shall never pass away. It--it's "Shalom," unto the--unto the Church. Now, it's Light time coming for the believers, but a gross darkness for the people.” [64-0112  Shalom, Sierra Vista AZ]
“That's Him among us, His Word being identified. Shalom. The great day is fixing to break, when the morning breaks Eternal, bright and fair, when His chosen ones shall gather to their home beyond the sky. When the roll is called up yonder, I'll be there. Our names are on His Book, we'll be there. "Shalom. Good morning. Peace be unto you." The darkness is separating itself from the Light. God's causing it, the Light's doing it. See, the Light's pressing Itself in such a way until the darkness has to congregate together. They had a chance to accept It and they wouldn't do it, so it's condensed itself. And they do that by the putting the church together, and the Council of Churches, and uniting it with the pagan darkness. When they so firmly disagree with one another, but yet they had to go together to make the night come upon the people.”[64-0112 Shalom, Sierra Vista AZ]
The great Light that hung in the wilderness which was, that Moses forsook Egypt, esteeming the reproach of Christ greater treasures than that of Egypt. The same One that met Saul on the road down to Damascus. A great Light hung before Him, that same Light, same Pillar of Fire. Saul, being a Hebrew, would never worship any spirit or anything, or call it "Lord," in the position he was in. He said, "Lord, who are You?" He said, "I'm Jesus." (Jesus said, "I come from God, and I go to God.")  That same Light has come. To what? To manifest, to--to make known to the people the promises that He's made for this day, manifested Light of the day. The darkness is darkened.”  [64-0112 Shalom, Sierra Vista AZ]
“And today that we're now living in, God has come on the scene to a-vindicate and prove His promises. So, it's the Light of the hour, so we can rise and shine. The Light shines upon us again today, the Word is being made manifest. It's the Light. Just like that light's shining out there, the sunshine, this morning. That's God's spoken Word, there's nothing else can give light like that. There's nothing can do it. Any artificial light burns out in a little bit, and bulbs and everything else. But that never fails, for it's the spoken Word of God made manifest. Little denominational creeds will bust a bulb, and blow a bulb, and knock a fuse, and everything else. But the Word of God shall never fail! It'll be Itself, always, the Word.” [64-0112 Shalom, Sierra Vista AZ]
The hour is here! If I could have been back there before the days that the world was created, and looked down and seen the whole thing, and the Father had said to me, "What day would you want to live?" I would say now, right now! This is the hour! This is the greatest hour that the Church has ever moved into, just before the coming of the Bridegroom. Oh, the real Church of the living God ought to be on fire, burning, with the Light of the Gospel being vindicated among them. "Rise and shine, for the Light has come to you," the Light of this day. Isaiah was the light of his day. Noah was the light of his day. Why? He had the Word manifested. And the Gospel, the Bible Words for this day, is the Light of the day. What a glorious time that we are living!” [64-0119  Shalom, Phoenix AZ]
“Now, remember, Jesus said, "As it was in the days of Sodom, so shall it be at the coming of the Son of man," that that same Spirit that was represented in human flesh, that Abraham called Elohim... Anybody know what Elohim means? Sure, the Almighty, the self-existing One. Abraham, the patriarch, called Him Elohim. He represented Himself in a body of flesh, eating and drinking and just like any other human being. And He done that sign to the elected Church before He destroyed Sodom. Oh, don't miss it, brethren. That hour has arrived. Elohim, Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever. While His body's setting at the right hand to make intercession for His Church, that same Spirit dwelling in His people, God manifested in the form of the Holy Ghost in His people, doing the same thing (Do you see it?) to the Gentiles.” [61-0213 It Is I Be Not Afraid, Long Beach CA]
“Satan has throwed all kinds of counterfeits, of shaking hands, and evidences, and everything like that. Forget it! The hour has arrived that the Token, Itself; not some counterfeit, make-belief, substitutionary, anything. The hour is here when the Token Himself is identifying Himself right among us, and proving that He is the same Jesus yesterday, today, and forever, and He's right with the Word. It's got to be applied. A man that says he's got the Token, deny this Word, then what about it? See, you can't do it. The Token has got to be there. "When I... The blood shall be a token unto you." Now the Holy Spirit, the Life that was in the Blood, is a Token unto you. Get to it in a moment, see. The Holy Ghost is the Token. The case is closed. Yes, sir. Now, remember.” [63-0901M  Token, Jeffersonville IN]
