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 

                                                      

 

                    HUNGERING AND THIRSTING AFTER RIGHTEOUSNESS

 

Words of prophecy:

 

*       There are two "thirstings" after knowledge: one rooted and grounded in a hungering after righteousness [My right way of doing things] and the other, a "mental ascent" to My Word [Will] in one's own strength and understanding - through pride and the pursuit of self-glory [unrighteous {self-serving} motivation].

 

       ...."Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied".... Matthew 5:6 NASB

 

       ...."Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see [know and understand] God".... Matthew 5:8 NASB

 

        ...."If anyone imagines that he has come to know and understand much [of divine things, without love], he does not yet perceive and recognize and understand as strongly and clearly, nor has he become as intimately acquainted with anything as he ought or as is necessary. But if one loves God truly [with affectionate reverence, prompt obedience, and grateful recognition of His blessing], he is known by God [recognized as worthy of His intimacy and love, and he is owned by Him]".... 1 Corinthians 8:2-3 The Amplified Translation

 

        ...."And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in real knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve the things that are excellent, in order to be sincere and blameless until the day of Christ; having been filled with the fruit of righteousness which comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God".... Philippians 1:9-11 NASB

 

        When one sets themselves to receive the deeper working of the Cross in their lives it is the spontaneous fruit of a hungering and thirsting after righteousness - something that should be found motivating [driving] the heart of every true believer.

 

       ...."Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied".... Matthew 5:6 NASB

 

       ...."Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see [know and understand] God".... Matthew 5:8 NASB

 

        ...."But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness [to be righteously motivated], and all these things will be added to you".... Matthew 6:33 NASB

 

Prayer of Proclamation:

 

        Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who are found "hungering and thirsting after righteousness" - a people who embrace the fullness of the ministry of the Holy Spirit [Who is the Spirit of obedience] with all of our heart. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
