1. I arise and shine; for my light is come, and the glory of the LORD has risen upon me.


  1. Darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall rise upon me, and his glory shall be seen upon my life.


  1. And many people will come to my light, and powerful men will be drawn to the brightness of my rising.


  1. I lift up my eyes round about, and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to me: my sons shall come from far, and my daughters shall be nursed at my side.


  1. I shall see, and greatly rejoice, and my heart will acknowledge God, and my capacity shall be greatly increased; because the abundance of the sea shall be converted unto me, the forces of the nations shall come unto me.


  1. The multitude of vehicles shall cover me, the latest models from the best car companies; all they from Europe, Asia, and America shall come: they shall bring pounds and dollars, and they shall shew forth the praises of the LORD.


  1. All the best products shall be made available to me, the latest technology shall minister to me: every good thing shall be so abundant, even as an offering to God, and to glorify the house of His glory.


  1. People will wonder how so much abundance can come in so short a time, and conclude that God is truly great.


  1. Surely the uttermost lands shall wait on me, their airlines and ports, to bring helpers from far, their millions of dollars and pounds with them, and it will bring great honour to LORD my God.


  1. And workers from the best foreign companies shall build up my business, enterprises, institutions, and cities, and their CEOs, billionaires, and presidents shall minister to me.


  1. Therefore my businesses will have no low seasons; they shall not close in the day or night; because the best-skilled personnel from around the world, and the experts will be brought in great numbers, from far and near, to my doorstep bringing their panache with them.


  1. For the nation and kingdom, the outfits, the corporations, the empires, the conglomerates, that will not serve me will become insignificant; yes those they shall become completely irrelevant.


  1. The best and finest, the choicest human resources and assets of nations shall come to me, the beauty, the skill, the resources, and supplies, to beautify the place that God has given me, to advance the course of His Kingdom, and to make it glorious.


  1. The sons also of them that afflicted me shall come bending unto me; and all they that despised me shall bow themselves down at the soles of my feet; and they shall acknowledge me as the city of the LORD, The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.


  1. Where I have been forsaken and hated, so that no one wanted to associate with me, God will make me an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations.


  1. I shall benefit from the wealth of the nations, and the treasury of kingdoms will be at my disposal: because the LORD is my Saviour and my Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.


  1. Instead of thousands, I will have millions, and instead of millions; billions. and Instead of buying cars, I will give many out and instead of renting properties, I will lease them out, even free of charge. The peace and righteousness of God will fill and control every aspect of my business. My workers shall know God, and every one of them shall flourish. The blessing of God will be upon the thousands that work with me.


  1. There will be no violence in my territory, no crimes or injustice within my borders; there shall be no sickness or untimely deaths. Everyone associated with me will be saved, and every life around me will glorify God.


  1. I will not depend on the economy of the nations. My prosperity will not be subject to the forces of the market, or of this world: In famine, I will flourish, I will lend to nations because the LORD shall be unto me an everlasting light, and my God the source of my shining.


  1. My sun shall no more go down; neither shall my moon withdraw itself: for the LORD shall be my everlasting light, and the days of my mourning are ended.


  1. My family also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the land forever, the branch of God’s planting, the work of His hands, that He may be glorified.


  1. The smallest in my household shall command a thousand, and the small ones shall bring forth mighty things on the face of the earth: for the LORD, my God will hasten it in His time.
