FIRE BY NIGHT
By Glenn H. Jackson
"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, or the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB
ONE OF THE CHARACTERISTICS OF TRUE SPIRITUAL ENVIRONMENT
Words of prophecy:
* Many of those in a position of "delegated authority" have "stifled"
[through controlling and self-exaltive practices] the spiritual growth of those I have entrusted them with. Because of this, I shall now begin to remove from their care those they have "kept down" - and I shall reestablish them with My true delegated authorities
in the true spiritual environment that is necessary for them to both enter into and fulfill their precious Kingdom-position and destiny, in Christ.
"stifle"- to quell, crush, or end by force [in this case, through the counterfeit forces
of the kingdom of darkness]; to suppress or withhold [in this case, keep God's children from receiving the Covenant blessings that are theirs, in Christ];
...."But woe to you, scribes and
Pharisees, pretenders [hypocrites]! For you shut the kingdom of heaven in men's faces; for you neither enter yourselves, nor do you allow those who are about to go in to do so".... Matthew 23:13 The Amplified Translation
[Jesus] began saying to His disciples first of all, 'Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. But there is nothing covered up that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known'".... Luke 12:1-2 NASB
times, one needs to guard themselves [stay very alert] in places where you would think that they would not have to - such as in the presence of other children of God. This is one of the characteristics of true spiritual environment [both individually - in
the "inner chamber" and corporately]: that one can rest fully in the Presence of the Lord.
...."Be of sober [spirit,] be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring
lion, seeking someone to devour. But resist him, firm in [your] faith".... 1 Peter 5:8-9 NASB
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You for the establishment
of true spiritual environments throughout the earth in this final hour - true, corporate spiritual environments that will provide a place for Your precious children to enter into Your Presence and, then, go out from that holy Presence to mightily demonstrate
the reality of Your Kingdom to a lost and dying world. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
