YHWH Arises

"Arise, shine, for your light has come!
And the esteem of YHWH has risen upon you.
For look, darkness covers the earth, and thick darkness the peoples.
But YHWH arises over you, and His esteem is seen upon you.
And the nations shall come to your light,
and sovereigns to the brightness of your rising." 
Isaiah 60:1-3

The Haf'Torah (OT writings/prophets) portion of this last week's Torah Portion Readings was Isaiah 60. Many people realize that this prophecy is making reference to Yahshua's return and reign, and to the blessings to be bestowed on YHWH's people around that time. A few years ago, I wrote down what seemed to me to be a revelation concerning the New Moon, with Isaiah 60:1 being one of the verses that came to mind. You can read that post HERE. (click "here")

This time around I connected Yahweh and Yahshua to the Sun and Moon. When relating the Messiah's resurrection to the rising of the moon cycle I had essentially compared Yahshua to the Moon. But I don't remember ever consciously making the specific comparison including YHWH and the Sun.

From my notes, "The Moon represents Yahshua, the Sun YHWH- the lesser and greater lights (ref. Gen. 1:16). The son reflecting the Father (as the moon does the sun), both giving light on the earth. The moon gives light to guide during the darkness of sin in the earth. But where the sun is shining at it's height (high noon) there is no shadow- no darkness."

When the moon orbits the earth, it always reflects the light of the sun except when the moon is  between the earth and the sun. At that time the moon still reflects the sun's light, we just can't see it. Just as YHWH's Son always reflects the light of YHWH towards us on this earth and back to our Father in Heaven. As He said in John 5:19, "Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son is able to do none at all by Himself, but only that which He sees the Father doing, because whatever He does, the Son also likewise does." And again in verse 30, "Of Myself I am unable to do any matter. As I hear, I judge, and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own desire, but the desire of the Father who sent Me."

The Sun, a star always shining, produces a very bright light which is given to this earth with only one requirement to recieve it. That is, turn towards the Sun. Half of Earth is always in light- the half which has turned its face towards the Sun and away from the darkness which encompasses the half of Earth which has its back turned on the Father- I mean, the Sun. When the earth has made a complete turn on its axis and faces the sun at high noon there is no shadow, no darkness- as when we are completely turned to face the Father, towards His presence.

YHWH promises that in the day when Yahshua comes to Tzion in judgement and thereafter to reign in Tzion, that the nations will bring tribute to Yisrael. They will bow down and recognize Tzion as the "City of YHWH, Tzion of the Set-apart One of Yisra'el... And you will know that I,
יהוה, your Saviour and your Redeemer, am the Elohim of Yaʽaqoḇ." (Is. 60: 14, 16)
After that time we will have no need of the light given by the Sun or Moon because we'll have the real deal living and ruling among us. HalleluYah!

"No longer is the sun your light by day, nor does the moon give light to you for brightness, but יהוה shall be to you an everlasting light, and your Elohim your comeliness.
No longer does your sun go down, nor your moon withdraw itself, for יהוה shall be your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning shall be ended. 
And your people, all of them righteous, shall inherit the earth forever – a branch of My planting, a work of My hands, to be adorned."
Isaiah 60:19-21
