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

HOLY PLUMB LINES
Words of prophecy:
* I have called My holy handmaidens and bondservants to lead My people into the fullness of their precious inheritance in Christ, and I have many
methods to do that. As always, perfect obedience produces the perfect "plumb line" in the midst of any given situation. Always remember: perfect obedience is the perfect catalyst to the release of Holy Fire [divine light and truth].
line" - a line perpendicular to the horizon, hanging (through the air).
...."and behold, the Lord was standing by a vertical wall with a plumb line in His hand. The LORD said to me, "What do you
see, Amos?" And I said, "A plumb line." Then the Lord said, "Behold I am about to put a plumb line in the midst of My people".... Amos 7:7-8 NASB
When one is truly seeking first the Kingdom from
the position of a heart that is "wholly given" to the reception of the absolute Truths of God's Word it is certain that they will encounter persecution from others - even those who appear to be "like-minded". Particularly in this late hour, things are coming
to the surface that, in some cases have lain dormant for many years.
In essence, those whose hearts are "wholly given" become a plumb line or measuring stick for the hearts that God leads across
their path. If there is ANY ground of wilful fear or spiritual pride in those who cross our path then they will be candidates to be used by the Enemy. The positive side of this is that as "holy fire" is released through us that ground is exposed - forcing
the one who has been holding onto that ground [darkness]to either acknowledge the fact that they need to change their "thinking" [belief system] through a deep and thorough repentance or contend in a form of self-justification [self-righteousness]. The scripture
passages below are a microcosm of the days of the Glorious Church and they are beginning to intensify, even now:
...."Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another, and the LORD gave attention
and heard [it,] and a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the LORD and who esteem His name. 'They will be Mine,' says the LORD of hosts, 'on the day that I prepare [My] own possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his own
son who serves him.' So you will again distinguish between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him. For behold, the day is coming, burning like a furnace; and all the arrogant and every evildoer will be chaff;
and the day that is coming will set them ablaze,' says the LORD of hosts, 'so that it will leave them neither root nor branch.' But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings; and you will go forth and skip about
like calves from the stall. You will tread down the wicked, for they will be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day which I am preparing, says the LORD of hosts".... Malachi 3:16-4:3 NASB
...."Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see [both know and understand] God [and His highest purpose]".... Matthew 5:8 NASB
...."Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake
of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. "Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great".... Matthew 5:10-12 NASB
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up as "holy plumb lines" in this final hour - a people You can use to shine Your divine Light
into the hearts of all those You bring across our path. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
