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:
* Many will say [know in their heart], even before the end of this year, that: "this is [has been]
the best year of my life"! For great "change" is about to overtake all those of My precious children who have remained faithful to the "fullness" of MY Will and purpose for their life and ministry.
"Change"- to make the form, nature, content,
future course, etc., of [something] different from what it is or from what it would be if left alone; to substitute another or others for;
...."The vision is yet for the appointed time; It hastens
toward the goal and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it; For it will certainly come, it will not delay".... Habakkuk 2:3 NASB
...."Do not call to mind the former things, or ponder
things of the past. Behold, I will do something new, now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, rivers in the desert".... Isaiah 43:18-19 NASB
The "plans of man" [plans made apart from the Holy Spirit] in the "church at large" have borne NO fruit for the Kingdom [and never could] - and have only served to "misrepresent" the Father and His Word/Will BUT, in a very short time, those "holding fast"
to the Wisdom of God will cause an "explosion" of God's divine Presence [Goodness, Glory] throughout the earth - an "explosion" that will shake everything that the Enemy has had his hand on in the midst of God's people, UP UNTIL THIS TIME! This will usher
in the "fullness" of the Father purpose for His people in this final hour [both individually and corporately] as He shows Himself strong on all those who are found walking uprightly before Him.
...."He hides away sound and godly Wisdom and stores it for the righteous [those who are upright and in right standing with Him]; He is a shield to those who walk uprightly and in integrity".... Proverbs 2:7 The Amplified Translation
...."According to the grace (the special endowment for my task) of God bestowed on me, like a skillful architect and master builder I laid [the] foundation, and now another [man] is building upon it. But let each [man] be careful how he builds upon it, For
no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is [already] laid, which is Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One). But if anyone builds upon the Foundation, whether it be with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw.
work of each [one] will become [plainly, openly] known (shown for what it is); for the day [of Christ] will disclose and declare it, because it will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test and critically appraise the character and worth of the work each
person has done. If the work, which any person has built on, this Foundation [any product of his efforts whatever] survives [this test], he will get his reward. But if any person's work is burned up [under the test], he will suffer the loss [of it all, losing
his reward], though he himself will be saved, but only as [one who has passed] through fire [Job 23:10]".... 1 Corinthians 3:10-15 The Amplified Translation
We are about to see the Father's perfect
unfolding in the midst of all those who truly love Him - those whose hearts are set on fulfilling ALL that they were created for, in Christ, from before the foundations of the earth. Our God is a good God [a vast understatement!] - and there is not one even
one ounce of faith, love and obedience [which are the spontaneous fruit of our love for the Father and His Word]that will not be openly rewarded - both in this final hour and throughout Eternity.
...."For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand [outside.] I would rather stand at the threshold of the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness. For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD gives grace and glory; No good thing does
He withhold from those who walk uprightly. O LORD of hosts, how blessed is the man/woman who trusts in You!".... Psalms 84:10-12 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
...."But without faith [love and obedience] it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily]
believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out]".... Hebrews 11:6 The Amplified Translation
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that "great change" is about to overtake us in our faithfulness - great changes that will result in the "fullness" of our precious Kingdom-position and destiny, in Christ, to come into "full manifestation". And we
declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
