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
RESIST THE LIES OF THE ENEMY THROUGH FAITH-FILLED PROCLAMATION OF THE TRUTH
Words of prophecy:
* One does not enter into [or remain in] perfect liberty by
first finding out [seeking after] what the Enemy has done but, rather, by finding out and confessing [believing] on an ongoing basis what My Dear Son has done!
"the place called Done" - is the place wherein one rests in the "finished"
work of the Lord Jesus Christ [and the entire scope of the Father's Will - past, present and future] through the continual exercising of an absolute faith love, and obedience. It is the place wherein the Grace of God abounds towards one - empowering them perfectly
in ALL things.
...."We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the true knowledge of God [and who we ALREADY are, in Christ], and we are taking every thought captive
[through proclamation] to the obedience of Christ [a revelation of the Father's Will]".... 2 Corinthians 10:5 NASB
...."For we are God's [own] handiwork [His workmanship], recreated in Christ
Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined [planned beforehand] for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live]"....
Ephesians 2:10 The Amplified Translation
The key to the proper exercising of one's mind is to bring every "thought" into alignment with a revelation of God's Word. When that is practiced diligently
THEN the very thoughts of the Father's Heart begin to rise up in our inner man by the power of the Holy Spirit. It is then that our thoughts become His thoughts. The Enemy is always attempting to counterfeit the divine process by trying to get us to take thoughts
[from the outside] that are in alignment with his "lies" - and it is up to each and every child of God to resist him [his wiles, lies] at EVERY turn..
...."The thief comes only in order to steal
and kill and destroy. I [Jesus] came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows]"....John 10:10 The Amplified Translation
...."for we are not ignorant
of his [Satan's] wiles and intentions".... 2 Corinthians 2:11b The Amplified Translation
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised
us up a people who are NOT ignorant of the wiles and schemes of the Evil One - a people who are found resisting him at EVERY turn from the place of an absolute trust in You - and in Your Power. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name -
to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
...."For though we walk (live) in the flesh, we are not carrying on our warfare according to the flesh and using mere human weapons [soulish intellect and reasoning].
For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds".... 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 The Amplified Translation
...."Submit therefore to [enter into an absolute trust in] God. Resist [the lies of] the devil [through faith-filled proclamation of the Truth] and he will flee from you".... James 4:7-8 NASB
