The Stand

Matthew 5:15 tells us: “… a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives…

Isaiah 60:1-2 NIV
“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.”
Matthew 5:14-16 NLT
“You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be
hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead,
a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the
house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see,
so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.”
THE STAND
Isaiah 60:1 NIV
“… thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises UPON YOU
and his glory appears OVER YOU.”
1 Corinthians 15:57-58 NKJV
But thanks be to God, who GIVES US THE VICTORY through our
Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast,
immovable, ALWAYS abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing
that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.
How Are We Going to Stand This Year?

  1. STAND FIRM
    1 John 4:18 NKJV
    There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear
    involves torment…
    Fear is a prophesying spirit that comes to prophesy a future without
    God in it.
    Hebrews 2:14-15 NLT
    Because God’s children are human beings—made of flesh and
    blood—the Son also became flesh and blood. For only as a human
    being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of
    the devil, who had the power of death. Only in this way could he
    set free all who have lived their lives as slaves to the fear of dying.
    Job 14:5 NLT
    “You have decided the length of our lives. You know how many
    months we will live, and we are not given a minute longer.”
    I’d rather die physically in faith than live spiritually dead in fear.

    be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket.

    in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for
    all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.”
