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
WE ARE NOT IGNORANT OF SATAN'S SCHEMES AND WILES
Words of prophecy:
* It is very important for My children to remember [always] that when Satan schemes to move them apart from My Will [outside of the Covenants of promise] through a continued disobedience and unbelief [mistrust] on their
part he has a definite purpose - and that purpose is to steal from, destroy and, ultimately, kill them [cause them to perish] before they are able to carry out the fullness of their precious destiny, in Christ.
...."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
...."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 NASB
The Enemy does not need a "reason" to attack us - as lying, stealing and murdering are the spontaneous
fruit of his vile nature. All he is interested in is stopping our faith because he knows that if one continues to "endure" in faith and patience they CANNOT FAIL to inherit the promises of God - to his greatest devastation!
...."And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence so as to realize the full assurance of hope until the end, so that you will not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises".... Hebrews 6:11-12 NASB
...."Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal among you, which comes upon you for your testing, as though some strange thing were happening to you; but to the degree that you share the sufferings
of Christ, keep on rejoicing, so that also at the revelation of His glory you may rejoice with exultation. If you are reviled for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you".... 1 Peter 4:12-14 NASB
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who are NOT ignorant of the Enemy's schemes and wiles - and, therefore, a people who are a threat
to both he and his forces, at EVERY turn! And we declare all of these things DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
