FIRE BY NIGHT

"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
IF ONE IS FAITHFUL TO BRING EVERY THOUGHT CAPTIVE TO A REVELATION OF GOD'S WORD "THEN" THEIR HEART WILL NOT FEAR
Words of Prophecy
* Failure to bring EVERY thought captive to My Word [Will - perfect obedience] will result in some degree of worry,
anxiousness, and the maintenance of self-desire in one's life!
* If one is "faithful" to bring every thought captive to a "revelation" of My Word THEN their heart will
not fear !
...."The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the defense of my life; Whom shall I dread? When evildoers came upon me
to devour my flesh, My adversaries and my enemies, they stumbled and fell. Though a host encamp against me, My heart will not fear; Though war arise against me, In spite of this I shall be confident. One thing I have asked from the LORD, that I shall seek:
That I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD And to meditate in His temple".... Psalms 27:1-4 NASB
us run with patient endurance and steady and active persistence the appointed course of the race that is set before us, Looking away [from all that will distract] to Jesus, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith [giving the first incentive for our belief]
and is also its Finisher [bringing it to maturity and perfection]. He, for the joy [of obtaining the prize] that was set before Him, endured the cross, despising and ignoring the shame, and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of God. [Ps. 110:1.]
Just think of Him Who endured from sinners such grievous opposition and bitter hostility against Himself [reckon up and consider it all in comparison with your trials], so that you may not grow weary or exhausted,
losing heart and relaxing and fainting in your minds".... Hebrews 12:1b-3 The Amplified Translation
"Elect" - a person or the persons chosen or worthy to be chosen;
"Inundate" - to cover by overflowing; flood; to overwhelm with abundance or excess;
The first and foremost strategy of the Evil One against God's "elect"
[those whose hearts are "wholly" given to His highest plans and purposes] in this most critical hour is "busyness". This is so that he keeps those he has targeted continually moving [both physically and mentally] at a pace that keeps them from positioning
themselves to hear the still, small voice of the Holy Spirit.
It is this continual "inundation" of one's thought-life that sets their mind to "racing", and this
causes them to not be able to focus spiritually for more than a moment's time. Such are the strongholds [and negative cycles] that are established by the failure of God's children to bring EVERY thought captive to a revelation of His Word [Will].
In this hour, the Father is calling His children to "fix" their eyes on Jesus [the Word of God], and to pursue a continual flow of revelation knowledge - at all cost to themselves.
For, as they do, they will surely be found speaking [proclaiming, praying] "authoritatively" [and accurately]into their own lives [and the lives of all those who cross their path] - and through this speaking forth of words that are the spontaneous by-product
of the "revelation" that is "abiding" in their innermost being they will truly be found "bringing every thought [and action] captive" to obedience [God's Will] - and, in the process, they will be found bearing maximum fruit for both the Church and the Kingdom.
...."We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the true knowledge of God [and who we ALREADY are, in Christ], and we are taking every thought
captive [through proclamation] to the obedience of Christ [a revelation of the Father's Will]".... 2 Corinthians 10:5 NASB
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who have a deep revelation of the importance of bringing EVERY thought [and, therefore, EVERY word we speak] captive to a revelation of Your Word/Will - a people who refuse to "allow"
the [fear-filled, lying] "thoughts" of the Enemy to enter into our thinking. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
