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
FAITH BEGINS WHERE THE WILL OF THE FATHER IS KNOWN [REVEALED]
Words of prophecy:
as never before in ALL things. Be diligent in prayer - and in the meditation and proclamation [decree] of My Word [Joshua 1:8].
* "Authoritative" prayer [proclamation] is the way of the Kingdom - and
it will be the "essence" of all true Kingdom-service in this final hour.
...."pray without ceasing".... 1 Thessalonians 5:17 NASB
...."But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right)".... Matthew 6:33 The Amplified Translation
...."Behold, I have given
you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you".... Luke 10:19
...."Jesus approached and, breaking the silence,
said to them, 'All authority [all power of rule] in heaven and on earth has been given to Me".... Matthew 28:18 The Amplified Translation
Faith begins where the Will of the Father is known [revealed]-
therefore, it is ONLY as one has the Will of the Father in any given situation AND the unction of the Holy Spirit to pray that we should pray. This is the way of pin-point accuracy: everything must be done in perfect synchronization with the Heart of the Father
and the unction of the Holy Spirit abiding within us - and this is the Kingdom-prayer and proclamation that is the fruit of our righteousness and authority in Christ.
...."Now faith is the assurance
[the confirmation, the title deed] of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses]".... Hebrews 11:1 The Amplified Translation
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people of "authoritative prayer" - a people who, in coming to a knowledge of Your Will,
continually speak and move in the fullness of our authority in Christ. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
...."But having the same spirit
of faith, according to what is written, "I BELIEVED, THEREFORE I SPOKE," we also believe, therefore we also speak".... 2 Corinthians 4:13 NASB
