FIRE BY NIGHT
By Glenn H. Jackson
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
"NEW CREATION" REALITIES
Words of Prophecy
The maintenance of a "sin-consciousness" [to any degree] shall cause the [a] "cycle of failure" to be repeated. In the same way, the diligent and continual maintenance of a "righteousness-consciousness" shall cause the "Kingdom cycle" of faith, love and obedience
to continually manifest in that one's life and ministry.
"Sin-consciousness" - any belief or mind-set that constitutes one "believing" that that which they have actually been redeemed from is still to
be in force in their life;
"Righteousness-consciousness"- a continual awareness through revelation of who we "actually" are in Christ;
...."Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come!".... 2 Corinthians 5:17 The Amplified
...."He made Him [Jesus] who knew no sin [to be] sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him".... 2 Corinthians 5:21
...."Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the
gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it".... Matthew 7:13-14 NASB
Fear, pride and unbelief cause the "patterns"
[cycles of negativity and darkness] to remain the same in one's life in just the same way that the continual exercising of faith, love and obedience cause one to enter into [and remain in] a "Kingdom-cycle" - a cycle that both empowers and keeps one on the
highway of holiness [the narrow path] even through greatest of "adversities".
"Adversity"- distress; affliction; hardship;
...."Encourage the exhausted, and strengthen the feeble. Say to those with anxious heart, 'Take courage, fear not. Behold, your God will come with vengeance; The recompense of God will come, But He will save you'. Then the eyes of the blind will be opened
and the ears of the deaf will be unstopped. Then the lame will leap like a deer, and the tongue of the mute will shout for joy. For waters will break forth in the wilderness and streams in the Arabah. The scorched land will become a pool and the thirsty ground
springs of water; In the haunt of jackals, its resting place, grass becomes reeds and rushes.
A highway will be there, a roadway, and it will be called the Highway of Holiness. The unclean will not travel
on it, but it will be for him who walks that way, and fools will not wander on it. No lion will be there, nor will any vicious beast go up on it; These will not be found there. But the redeemed will walk there, and the ransomed of the LORD will return and
come with joyful shouting to Zion, with everlasting joy upon their heads. They will find gladness and joy, and sorrow and sighing will flee away".... Isaiah 35:3-10 NASB
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that, by Your doing, we have been become the righteousness of God in Christ. Therefore,we set ourselves to diligently exercise an absolute
faith and trust in You - KNOWING that in our pathway NO death, in any of its forms [fear, darkness, unrighteousness etc.] can remain standing. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
...."In the way of righteousness is life, and in its pathway there is no death [no death can remain standing]".... Proverbs 12:28 NASB
