Arise and shine, our light has come!

I want to show a worship video that prophetically speaks to us as the people of God. He is waking hearts to life. We’ve been awakened by His furious love. No more religious orphans not knowing who we are, hoping for heaven when we die, but fully affirmed sons and daughters learning how to live from heaven to earth in the Father’s embrace. 

As I said in my book, Sonshift: Everything Changes In The Father’s Embrace

“You and I are Sleeping Beauty.

Not the Sleeping Beauty of the Brothers Grimm story but the object of God’s deepest affection in His ultimate love story. Unlike the fairytale, His romantic tale is true”….

Sonshift is about Jesus’ true love—His Sleeping Beauty—in the middle of a great awakening. She isn’t dead, just sleeping. She’s always been just as beautiful as she was on the day she was born. Jesus has always loved her the same. But a wicked prince has always hated her because she is the object of the King’s deepest affection. So he tried to kill her, but he could only manage to put her in an orphan sleep. And now, in our lifetime, the time has come for her to awaken.” (p.27-28)

I’ve said this many times before but it bears repeating and repeating over again until we believe it. This is where we are today.  What had put Jesus’ beautiful Bride to sleep is the toxic religion of separation and performance: a transactional relationship with God instead of a transformational one forged in intimacy. But we’re beginning to wake up and find the true outward freedom from the indwelling Christ! It’s a glorious time to be alive if the eyes of your heart are open to it.

Here’s a live worship clip with Jeremy Riddle singing his song, “Furious” during Bethel’s baptismal service. It’s a beautiful sight. God is SO good. Selah.

Come alive.
He’s waking hearts to life.

“Arise, shine, for your light has come,
    and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.
See, darkness covers the earth
    and thick darkness is over the peoples,
but the Lord rises upon you
    and his glory appears over you.
Nations will come to your light,
    and kings to the brightness of your dawn. (Isa.60:1-3 NIV)
