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 

                                                     

 

      

TRUE LOVE IN THE KINGDOM

 

                                                             [part 1 of 2]

 

"true" - conforming to reality or fact; not false; real; genuine; authentic;

 

Words of Prophecy

 

*       If I am NOT in it then "it" is NOT Love!

 

*       The Holy Spirit [Who is the Spirit of Love] empowers ALL true Covenant-relationship - both with Me and with others in the Body.

 

        ...."the love of God [the Father] has been poured out within our hearts [inner man] through the Holy Spirit who was given to us".... Romans 5:5 NASB

 

        ...."Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily. It is not conceited [arrogant and inflated with pride]; it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love [God's love in us] does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong]. It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail. Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening]. Love never fails [never fades out or becomes obsolete or comes to an end]".... 1 Corinthians 13:4-8a The Amplified Translation.

 

        It is certain that in any given situation one will either be found seeing [discerning] things through the Father's eyes [the eyes of Love]or through the eyes of their "own"understanding [with a lot of "help" from the Enemy] depending on their present state of heart [I am talking about Christians now]. It must be clearly understood once and for all that Divine Love is completely different to "human [soulish] love" [I do not even like to use that expression as, in reality, there is NO such thing as true Love apart from God - for He IS Love {1 John 4:16}]. When one is truly operating in Divine Love, "self" doesn't even come into the picture, let alone be taken account of in any way. "Human love" is base and self-serving and a counterfeit of the real thing - regardless of how good it may "look" or "feel".

 

        Unfortunately, this "counterfeit love" can be a VERY powerful force - one that, up until this time, has continued to both influence and control vast multitudes of God's people throughout the earth [for, again, in reality, what does NOT issue forth from divine Love issues forth from a "soulish {sense-ruled} love" that is incapable of loving - in the true meaning of the word]. Even "good-intentioned" words and actions can spring from what, in reality, is just soulish emotion ["human love"] - the spontaneous fruit of which is ALWAYS "self-serving". The worst part is that when one speaks and acts from a root of soulish emotion [human "love"] they - without fail - believe that they are not only "loving" others but also pleasing God [which is NEVER the case - for it is ONLY faith {which works through divine Love} that pleases Him] [Hebrews 11:6].

 

        When one is operating in divine Love, the power of the Holy Spirit [Who is the Spirit of Love] flowing out of them [consciously or unconsciously] will ALWAYS have a direct influence [bless, change or confront {convict} - depending on the state of the hearts before them] on the environment they are in. For divine Love NEVER seeks its own but, rather, the Father's "best" [whatever that may turn out to be] for all those who are led across their path.

 

        ...."There is no fear in love [dread does not exist], but full-grown [complete, perfect] love turns fear out of doors and expels every trace of terror!".... 1 John 4:18a The Amplified Translation

 

                                                        to be continued

 

Prayer of Proclamation:

 

        Father, we thank You and praise You  that You have raised us up a people who have a deep and abiding revelation of Your great Love for us - a people who refuse to be a partaker of the "counterfeit {human} love" that is the spontaneous fruit of a "sense-ruled" mind and self-serving heart. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
