Arise and Shine, Pt 1


Our hyper-connected society has made life’s traditional experience the defining factor in the perception of the larger global or eternal events.  So it has always been; and so it is today: “as in the days of Noah.” 

The Old Testament, time and again, finds the chosen clinging to the pride of their traditions and ignoring – at their peril – the spirit of God . . . the word of God: rejecting – even killing the prophets.  And the religious leaders of the day would not believe the person Jesus Christ.

Of the many reasons for man’s rejection of God’s word is the overwhelming inconceivable incomprehensible indescribable person of the Almighty God and His revelation. So when the word of the Lord comes – outside of the box [to put it in modern text] – man will reject it, fear it, oppose it and contradict it.

As I was in prayer and meditation a couple of years back, I heard the voice of the Lord tell me, “The greatest contradiction to my word is in the church.”  Historically speaking, we could say, “The greatest contradiction to His word is in the chosen family:” Old and New Testament.   “So [then] faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God . . . But to Israel he saith, All day long I have stretched forth my hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people.”  Gainsay definition; to deny, dispute, or contradict. Disobedience and gainsaying is not limited to Israel!  It certainly applies to the world; but it also applies to the church.

So, why am I emphasizing this?  Why am I introducing the traditional flaws of man?  Because something is happening in the earth today; and the revelation of it is overwhelming, inconceivable, incomprehensible and indescribable.  It’s time to “hear, and hear” the word of God.

Today [currently] as I write this post, the economic collapse of the entire global financial system is a stark and looming threat . . . a teetering reality!  Darkness is growing upon the earth in shaking proportions.  The global masses are gripped with fear. Uncertainty is unprecedented on a worldwide scale. Human life has no value but to serve the special interests of the ultra elite. Civil liberties and morality has declined to such degree the righteous are deceived.

Over the next few days, we’re going to feature our resident pastor and Day and Night Post News contributor, Pastor Dr. Don G. Pickney, M.Div.; Th.D. in a 3-4 Part special teaching beyond what we feature on Home Church Sunday.  You might say this would be our Day and Night Post equivalent of Meet The Press, Fox News Sunday,  CBS Sunday Morning, ABC’s This Week, or Face The Nation.

You are going to hear in a fashion the news directly from Scripture and imparted in similitude to Scripture reference and prophecy.  Dr. Pickney does not predate or prejudge or predetermine times, places or faces; but is anointed to open the Scriptures with incomparable clarity as he gives voice to, “Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon [ His family ] thee,” Isaiah 60.

At the end of this mini-series, you will either be well informed – understanding; or be gainsaying?  You may be inclined to deny, dispute, or contradict.  But, you will never be the same . . .
