Strong’s H215 shine אוֹר ʼôwr, ore; a primitive root; to be (causative, make) luminous (literally and metaphorically):—break of day, glorious, kindle, (be, en-, give, show) light (-en, -ened), set on fire, shine.
I originally received the following word for a beautiful couple at my church. The word went along with an art piece I made as a wedding present called “Shine”. I sensed that this word for them, along with the song I wrote and sang at their wedding, spoke of them as a couple that God had strategically brought together for His purposes. I also sensed that it applied to other “power couples” God was raising up in the earth (married or to be married).
Isaiah 60:1-3 (VOICE) Arise, shine, for your light has broken through! The Eternal One’s brilliance has dawned upon you. See truly; look carefully—darkness blankets the earth; people all over are cloaked in darkness. But God will rise and shine on you; the Eternal’s bright glory will shine on you, a light for all to see. Nations north and south, peoples east and west, will be drawn to your light, will find purpose and direction by your light. In the radiance of your rising, you will enlighten the leaders of nations.
I know that NOW is the time for God’s beautiful power couples to arise and shine! These couples will beautifully reflect the love of our Heavenly Bridegroom for His Bride. They will also walk in a joint commission as fathers and mothers in the Body of Christ, restoring the joy and bringing a deeper revelation of God’s command to us in the beginning:
Genesis 1:27-28 (NLT) So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. Then God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and multiply. Fill the earth and govern it. Reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, and all the animals that scurry along the ground.”
Be fruitful, multiply, govern, and reign. I believe these couples will humbly answer the call to multiply the anointing they have on their lives and teach the Body of Christ how to rule and reign with the Bridegroom of Heaven. Because of all God has brought these individuals through, He will use the two together in a powerful way where they will be more effective than they ever could be on their own. They will love much because they have been forgiven much. Their relationship will reflect the power of Christ’s redemption. They will walk in the fear of the LORD, as Papa and Mama bears who will fiercely fight for God’s children. These precious couples will reconnect the scattered parts of the Body so that Christ’s life-giving blood will flow through once again!
It’s time for restoration! Like the two witnesses that were slain and raised again in power (Revelation 11:3-11) and like the Tabernacle of David that fell and will be raised (Amos 9:11), so God will restore the roles of husband and wife, mother and father in a way that will glorify Him and mend what has been broken!
IT’S TIME TO SHINE
You were born for a time such as this. I have brought you together for a time such as this. Walk hand in hand—in a unity that comes through obedience to My Word. Walk hand in hand, in a love that mirrors the love of your Heavenly Bridegroom for His Bride. Stand united, and be vessels of My light and My love during this time where the world needs Me the most. Let My fingerprints be evident in every area of your lives. Be My witnesses in this earth, not just in speech but in conduct. I arise over you, Beloved. There is nothing you need to fear. Walk boldly, arrayed in My glory, as the beautiful Bride beside her conquering King!
