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 

                                                     

 

      

ONE'S CONCEPT OF TIME IS GOVERNED

BY EITHER THEIR FAITH OR THEIR UNBELIEF

 

Words of Prophecy                                                                                      

 

*       "Time" is subject to My Word [Will] - My Word [Will] is not subject to "time"! One's concept of time is governed by their unbelief - through the degree of "heart-fellowship" they have with the world. My Kingdom is eternal and is, in essence, "timeless" - as My people "abide" in an absolute faith, working through a perfect love.

 

        ...."But seek [aim at and strive after] first of all His kingdom and His righteousness [His way of doing and being right], and then all these things taken together will be given you besides".... Matthew 6:33 The Amplified Translation

 

*       Everything is ALWAYS "right on schedule" to the heart that is "wholly" given to My highest Will and purpose for their life and ministry.

 

*       Faith works by love [Galatians 5:6b], and love walks above and beyond both "time and space" in its diligent [perfect] pursuit of My perfect purpose. This is the way of the Kingdom.

 

*       "Time" does not truly matter until the "fullness of time" [Galatians 4:4-6].

 

        ...."we consider and look not to the things that are seen [the lower reality - that which is real to the five physical senses] but to the things that are unseen [through faith in the higher Reality of God's Word]; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting) [subject to change], but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting [Eternal]".... 2 Corinthians 4:18 The Amplified Translation

 

        ...."For we walk by faith [we regulate our lives and conduct ourselves by our conviction or belief respecting man's relationship to God and divine things, with trust and holy fervor; thus we walk] not by sight or appearance".... 2 Corinthians 5:7 The Amplified Translation

 

        ...."If then you have been raised with Christ [to a new life, thus sharing His resurrection from the dead], aim at and seek the [rich, eternal treasures] that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. And set your minds and keep them set on what is above [the higher things] not on the things that are on the earth".... Colossians 3:1-2 The Amplified Translation

 

        .... Then the LORD answered me and said, "Record the vision And inscribe it on tablets, that the one who reads it may run. 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. Behold, as for the proud one, His soul is not right within him; But the righteous will live by his faith".... Habakkuk 2:2-4 NASB

 

        More often than not a focus on "time" simply becomes fodder [means]for the Enemy to distract the child of God from the task at hand [faith, love and obedience]. From the very beginning of the true Christian walk one begins to experience the "timelessness" of the Kingdom that is the spontaneous fruit of faith. In other words, as one continually exercises faith and patience in the "revelation" abiding in their heart - they will come to KNOW [gain a deep assurance of the spiritual reality]that in the "fullness of time" [the time period when the Father's perfect purpose on ALL fronts is fulfilled]ALL things will "unfold" [overtake them] perfectly.

 

        There may be specific times when one is given dates [a specific time frame]but that is most certainly not the most common way [in my experience] - nor is is profitable [spiritually or otherwise] for people [as we have seen on a number of occasions through the years with the "rapture" predictions and judgement {disaster} predictions] to get their eyes on the "temporal" realm [as it is the Enemy's territory and many a child of God has been deceived and greatly disappointed because of their "misplaced" faith]. One might say that "revelation", in itself, is timeless, and when one is found "abiding" in that place of absolute faith [and perfect Love] they will have the deep assurance in their heart that EVERYTHING [as far as the physical manifestation of the Father's perfect unfolding goes] is "right on schedule" - at ALL times.

 

"Onus" - burden of responsibility;

 

        This does not mean that the Holy Spirit NEVER gives one "specific times" [for He surely does] [John 16:13] it is just that in the past many have believed they had a "revelation" from the Holy Spirit but, in reality, they did not - and, thus, their faith was "misplaced" leading to major disappointment and confusion in their lives concerning the "actual" Will of God. What one does in a situation where the Lord has given them a "time-frame" or "due date", so to speak, is to cast the "care" of the impression [revelation] ENTIRELY back on the Lord and, THEN, set themselves to a perfect obedience each day leading up to the aforementioned "due date" [continually thanking and praising Him for HIS perfect unfolding every time it comes to their remembrance]. In this way, one "maintains" their faith and trust in Him without allowing themselves to get distracted [or attempt "subconsciously" to bring it to pass themselves in their own strength and understanding] and puts the "onus" on the Holy Spirit to "unfold all things" perfectly by His Power.

 

        So, then, it becomes a matter of one keeping their eyes "fixed" on Jesus whilst continuing to go about the Father's business - KNOWING [having a revelation of the spiritual reality] that He is responsible to bring ALL things to pass. The ONLY thing that matters for each and every one of us, as true sons and daughters, is the Will of the Father - and if one's heart is "wholly given" to it THEN it is certain that it [His highest Will and purpose] will continually "overtake" them.

 

        ...."If you will listen diligently to the voice of the Lord your God, being watchful to do all His commandments which I command you this day, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. And all these blessings [see verses 3-14] shall come upon you and overtake you if you heed the voice of the Lord your God'.... Deuteronomy 28:1-2 The Amplified Translation

 

Prayer of Proclamation:

 

        Father, we thank You and praise You that we are a people whose concept of time is totally governed by our faith - leading to the glorious "timelessness" that is a certain fruit of a life that is lived with both feet firmly planted in Your Kingdom. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
