FIRE BY NIGHT
By Russ Walden
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 EXERCISING OF A DIVINE FAITH ALWAYS HAS ITS CERTAIN REWARD
Words of prophecy:
* This is a time of great judgment [reward] amongst My people. Because many have made the decision to continually abide in faith [Love] in this hour they have trained and disciplined themselves to bring
EVERY thought captive to My Word [Will] - and, thus, to a perfect obedience. Because of these things, they have not "allowed" themselves to be overwhelmed by the manifestation of evil in the world, or the Evil One's attempt to both dishearten
and derail them from My perfect purpose for their life and ministry - through the reproach of those who should have known better. Not only have they not been overwhelmed, but they remain steadfast in their faith - hearts filled to overflowing with
Truly I say to you, as the manifestations of the outpouring of My Spirit [the former and the latter rains together] begin to happen to a continually greater degree in this most
glorious hour they shall not be "surprised" in ANY way for they have a revelation of My Heart and, in superabundant joy, they shall continually rejoice and stand in awe of the "holy destruction" that I inflict upon Satan and his schemes [strongholds] through
My holy vessels.
...."Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and
falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great".... Matthew 5:10-12 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 [persecuted] 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
The exercising of divine faith [Love] and
patience ALWAYS has its certain reward - both now and in the ages to come [Eternity].
...."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
...."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 Satan's time is short and that, with each passing day, a remnant Church is "rising" in the power of Your Spirit
throughout the earth - a Church that has been prepared to devastate [obliterate] the Enemy's strongholds at every turn, setting vast multitudes of captives free in the process. And we declare it done [on an ongoing basis] - to Your greatest Glory,
in Jesus' Name. Amen.
