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
Words of prophecy:
becomes [and is influenced greatly by] what they "behold".
"behold" - regard; gaze upon; discern;
"gaze"- to look at steadily or intently;
* Whatever one
dwells [focuses] upon will SURELY overtake them. Let it be clearly understood by each and every one of My precious children that, in any given moment, they will either be found "magnifying" Me [and ALL that I am] or the Evil One and his vile works [lies].
...."Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty [emancipation from bondage, freedom] [Isa. 61:1, 2]. And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we]
continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit"....
2 Corinthians 3:17-18 The Amplified Translation
Another important reason for spending quality time in fellowship with the Father and His Word is that it enables Him to build the proper image
and vision He has for us - and it also allows Him to continually place His godly desires in our heart of hearts. As we maintain the place of "abiding" it shall surely allow Him to build a "steadfast" vision - a vision [revelation] that shall continually keep
us pointed in the right direction.
...."If you live in Me [abide vitally united to Me] and My words remain in you and continue to live in your hearts, ask whatever you will [desire], and
it shall be done for you".... John 15:7 The Amplified Translation
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You for ALL that You have done for us. We thank
You and praise You for sending Jesus to redeem us, fully - and, in light of these things, we set ourselves to ONLY "magnify You and the Lord Jesus [Your holy Word] in ALL that we say and do. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to
Your greatest Glory. Amen.
...."I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving".... Psalm 69:30 KJV
