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. And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.
Revival and judgment often go hand in hand. Jesus Himself said that the city of Jerusalem was judged and set for destruction, although the actual destruction took another 40 years from His pronouncement, simply because they missed the day of their visitation (Luke 19:44). He, at the beginning, and notably in the midst of the greatest revival ever, announced judgement.
Judgment will come to America, and to the world. It must. There will be great revival, there will be great turning, but not all will turn. Many, many will choose the darkness, and many, many will persecute, and turn others from the truth.

Now a man came up to Jesus and asked, “Teacher, what good thing must I do to get eternal life?”
The man came to the Master, asking for Eternal life. Jesus, the truth, never told any lies, or exaggerated anything, but told Him the honest answer. He had to sell everything.
We know, of course, the Teacher never was interested in our possessions, per se, but rather, our hearts. Obviously, the man had issues in his heart, for he valued the treasures of this world above that of the world. But, these were Jesus’ words, that the man might be perfect.

The spiritual man makes judgments about all things, but he himself is not subject to any man’s judgment:
1 Corinthians 2:15 NIV
You see, it is the spiritual man that is free.
According to Paul, he, the spiritual man, judges all things, and yet is judged by no one.
But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
1 Corinthians 2:15 KJV
He that is spiritual judges. He that is spiritual is not subject to other men’s judgement.
The man led by the Spirit is not under the law. He neither looks directly to it for his direction nor does he receive criticism or accusation that he has violated it or has transgressed it.

You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden;
Salvation is a supernatural event. God’s Spirit comes in and regenerates the dead human spirit, making a person alive again. When a human believes, a change takes place, that changes a human being, dead in their trespasses and sins as they were, to being a new creation in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17).
A man does not need to be told or convinced that he has been born again, or saved, by any other person. Affirmation and good Bible study is always advisable, and continued pointing to the truth of the Word of God is always recommended, but, when a man is changed, he knows it on the inside.

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus;
But, there is condemnation for those who are not in Christ. Jesus said,
He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
Jesus said that those who do not believe in Him, the Son of Man who was God Himself, would be eternally condemned, bound in an eternal hell for Eternity. Paul, writing later, said that it was on the six foundations of the Christian faith, without which, one could not move on to maturity (Hebrews 6:2).
In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon, Daniel had a dream, and visions passed through his mind as he was lying on his bed. He wrote down the substance of his dream.
Daniel said: “In my vision at night I looked, and there before me were the four winds of heaven churning up the great sea. Four great beasts, each different from the others, came up out of the sea.
This is understood as the parallel to Daniel 2. Daniel 2 was Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, this is Daniel’s. While Nebuchadnezzar saw the kingdoms, Daniel apparently sees the spirits of the kingdoms. The four winds church the great sea, and four distinct beasts came up out of it.
