Rising Up

Updated on March 16, 2019

What does it mean to rise up?

To awake, to stand and having done all to stand,

Stand, Whereby I rise up!

Why do I rise?

Sleep can’t hold captive, that which can wake to a new day,

Yet, death can temporarily silence,

But hope beyond death speaks

Rise up!

Rise up is what John the Baptist meant by repent,

A greater purpose is at stake,

Rise up is what Jesus was saying, by repent,

In order to experience what resurrection looks like,

Arise in spirit, arise in the soul, the body rises daily towards this goal,

A songwriter penned,

I rise up, I rise like the day, I rise unafraid, and I am liking rising up,

The way I have come to appreciate rising from spirit and soul slumber,

Is by repenting, so then I like the way I rise up,

The best part of rising is the paradigm of repentance,

Which only leads to the hope and promise of perfection,

Beyond sleep, slumber, and death,

Where all the repentant will meet for the final journey, after the fall,

This place cannot be found anywhere else, it is where Jesus addressed as,

Having been given “the space to repent” (Revelation 2:21)

Rise up to me means to repent, and to be corrected,

It is a personal and private place. not everyone will speak of it,

Because it is a place of ache, where hurt resides,

It is where life’s traumas hide the traces of the pain all sin leaves behind,

Whereas touching the grief it can only be done by who is acquainted with sorrow,

No one really knows how to touch grief but by or with words and deeds,

Repentance knows the hiding places within, cleans out all wounds,

And has the ointment needed to be the free indeed needed, To rise up!

Rising up with the ability to breathe requires breath,

Breath has a very limited purpose if I cannot utter, 'I repent"

God breathed, and man became a living soul,

Only to fall, still with breath that required and still does require a remedy,

Only repentance provides what it means to truly rise up from the fall!

I repent Creator, and in doing so I am desirous of rising up,

Thank you for the Spirit of Prophecy, all of the Prophets and Prophetesses.

      Hi Dana: I hope all is well. You identified unrepentance very accurately, it is poison to the soul. I have it diagnosed as "kryptonite" just as this substance was used to weaken Superman, unrepentance is being used to weaken, the believer from experiencing the deeper things which must first be purged by repentance in order to utilize all properties of salvation properly. I rebuke myself at this present time from even alluding that the Holy Spirit can be anywhere repentance is not. I want to know the difference between the kryptonited and the ignited. The fear of repenting is real, one may feel that they have done nothing wrong to repent of, but unless the right that is valued exceeds that of the scribes and the Pharisees the soul as you put it will be poisoned. Thanks for sharing.

      Un-repented sin is like poison to the soul. It leads to other spiritual illnesses like bitterness, anger, depression. Like a domino effect it can lead to drug/alcohol and so many other things. I remember when the spirit addressed my un-repented sin and the emotions it caused anger, self-pity, He said you weren't designed for that type of burden. We must free ourselves from the burdens we carry. We have to stop seeing ourselves as bad people who are repenting and see the truth we are people making bad choices and we need correction. Repenting is freeing. It says to our maker "I need to be corrected in this area. I don't have a deep enough understanding of why I shouldn't do this." When we acknowledge we need help God is merciful and it is the beginning of understanding true wisdom.
