FIRE BY NIGHT
"Reflections Upon Reflections" [of The Father's Heart]
...."You, in Your great compassion, did not forsake them in the wilderness; The pillar of cloud did not leave them by day, to guide them on their way, nor the pillar of fire by night, to light for
them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB

THE FRUIT OF A "MAINTAINED" UNFORGIVENESS IS AN EVER GROWING HARDNESS OF HEART
Words of prophecy:
* The "spirits of torment" will prey relentlessly on those who "wilfully" [stubbornly] hold to bitterness, unforgiveness and resentment in this hour. For unforgiveness of ANY kind opens wide the door to
the Evil One and his forces and, thus, allows them to carry out all manner of vile schemes against that one - with a view to their destruction.
"stubbornly"- obstinately maintained, as a course of action; fixed or set in purpose or opinion;
...."For if you forgive people their trespasses [their reckless and willful sins, leaving them, letting them go, and giving up resentment], your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do
not forgive others their trespasses [their reckless and willful sins, leaving them, letting them go, and giving up resentment], neither will your Father forgive you your trespasses".... Matthew 6:14-15 The Amplified Translation
The fruit of a "maintained" unforgiveness [bitterness and stubbornness] is an ever growing hardness of heart towards the Father - and towards His Will for one's life and ministry. It is also an absolute denial of the precious Blood of Jesus,
and renders the power of that precious Blood "ineffectual" [not able to be applied] in that one's life.
...."Then Peter came and said to Him, "Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me and
I forgive him? Up to seven times?" Jesus *said to him, "I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven. For this reason the kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who wished to settle accounts with his slaves. When he had begun
to settle them, one who owed him ten thousand talents was brought to him. But since he did not have the means to repay, his lord commanded him to be sold, along with his wife and children and all that he had, and repayment to be made. So the slave fell to
the ground and prostrated himself before him, saying, 'Have patience with me and I will repay you everything.' And the lord of that slave felt compassion and released him and forgave him the debt.
But that slave went out and found one
of his fellow slaves who owed him a hundred denarii; and he seized him and began to choke him, saying, 'Pay back what you owe.' So his fellow slave fell to the ground and began to plead with him, saying, 'Have patience with me and I will repay you.' But he
was unwilling and went and threw him in prison until he should pay back what was owed. So when his fellow slaves saw what had happened, they were deeply grieved and came and reported to their lord all that had happened. Then summoning him, his lord *said to
him, 'You wicked slave, I forgave you all that debt because you pleaded with me. 'Should you not also have had mercy on your fellow slave, in the same way that I had mercy on you?' And his lord, moved with anger, handed him over to the torturers until he should
repay all that was owed him. My heavenly Father will also do the same to you, if each of you does not forgive his brother from your heart".... Matthew 18:21-35 NASB
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that by the precious Blood of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit [Who is the Spirit of wisdom and revelation] we have been set free from every last element of unforgiveness in our lives. And we declare it DONE [on an
ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
