FIRE BY NIGHT
By Glenn H. Jackson
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
THE WAY OF KINGDOM-RELATIONSHIP IS GLORIOUS
Words of prophecy:
* The "reciprocal" action of a
fleshly "emotional" attachment is a holy cleaving unto one another in the Spirit of Love which, in reality, is a cleaving unto Christ. As each of My children live and move and have their being in Me - and, thus, as they seek only to carry out My will, moment
to moment - then surely those who are "seeking" Me shall cleave unto them, not for any other reason than that they are one with Me. There is a distinct difference between cleaving unto one in fear and cleaving unto one in faith [love].
- to stick fast; adhere: with, to; to be faithful: with, to;
...."For in Him [Christ] we live and move and have our being [entire existence]".... Acts 17:28a The Amplified Translation
One of the fruit of broken soul ties is that every former "dependence" upon that person is broken - thereby, freeing up one to trust fully in the Father and His Word, above ALL else. Through the years the Lord
has taught me much on the "pull" [draw] of soulish relationship [which is the way of the flesh and the "world"]and its dangers. The way of Kingdom-relationship is glorious - and is predicated on our relationship with the Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
All "soulish-relationship, when stripped down, ALWAYS has its root in self-desire and self-agenda [not necessarily consciously on their part - although, as Christians, we should be conscious of it].
The Nature of God and the nature of the "flesh" [old nature] not only cannot co-exist they are in perfect enmity [contention] with each other on a continual basis. So, even though we must love all those who cross our path, the Father MUST "hand-pick" those
we are to be "divinely connected" to - without exception. ALL things in the Kingdom are [and must be] established by "revelation" and the Wisdom of God [the Holy Spirit - Who is the Spirit of wisdom and revelation]. All of these things shall become VERY evident
to all those whose hearts are "wholly given" God - both in this season and in the glorious seasons ahead.
...."Do not be bound together with unbelievers [those who are bound by "unbelief"]; for
what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness? Or what harmony has Christ with Belial, or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever? Or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the
temple of the living God; just as God said, 'I will dwell in them and walk among them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. Therefore, come out from their midst and be separate, says the Lord. 'and do not touch what is unclean; And I will
welcome you. And I will be a father to you, ad you shall be sons and daughters to Me', says the Lord Almighty. Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear
of God".... 2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1 NASB
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who pursue, with all of our hearts,
the glorious Kingdom-relationships that You have "hand-picked" for us from before the foundations of the earth - Kingdom-relationships that will SURELY help empower us to fulfill ALL that we were created for in Christ - both individually and corporately -
in this final hour. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
