The moon doesn’t have its own light, but simply reflects the light of the sun. Jesus said that the Church is the light for this world, a city set on a hill that cannot be hidden (see Matt. 5:14). Like the moon, the light we reflect is not ours, but the light of the Son. The moon also governs the tides of the earth, and in one sense God has given the Church the ability (under His hand) to influence the tides of revival. There are certain principles—holy living, travailing prayer, and biblical preaching—that God can use to usher a revival of Christianity to this dark and dying world.
Psalm 89:36 His seed shall endure forever, And his throne as the sun before Me; 37 It shall be established forever like the moon, Even like the faithful witness in the sky.” Selah
