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
IF ONE IS FAITHFUL IN THE "LITTLE" THINGS THEN IT IS CERTAIN THAT THEY WILL BE FOUND FAITHFUL IN THE "BIG" THINGS
Words of Prophecy
* In this hour, it is most important for every one of My children to "redeem their time" in the diligent pursuit of a "burning" [active] revelation of My
Will for their life and ministry. It is certain that I have been preparing a remnant Church to establish that which does not presently exist in the physical realm [the new wineskin]. Because of these things, the reception of revelation knowledge becomes the
key concerning one's understanding of My true plans and purposes [both individually and corporately] for them in these days. Now is the time when I shall "unveil" those whose hearts are wholly given to My highest purposes and, truly I say to you, they shall
shine brightly right to the end of the age - "beacons" to a lost and dying world.
...."No one puts a piece of cloth that has not been shrunk on an old garment,
for such a patch tears away from the garment and a worse rent [tear] is made. Neither is new wine put in old wineskins; for if it is, the skins burst and are torn in pieces, and the wine is spilled and the skins are ruined. But new wine is put into fresh wineskins,
and so both are preserved".... Matthew 9:16-17 The Amplified Translation
* If there is any ground of self-desire [self-agenda] "maintained" by any one of My children
then it shall surely lead them into the place wherein they will "mentally ascend" to My Will for their life and ministry - and, thus, they will take a position far below the "Kingdom-position" that I have ordained for them.
* When one truly desires "all" that I have for them in Christ [and the fullness of their true Kingdom-position] THEN they shall surely have it.
Godly desire "maintained" continually enlightens one as to the fullness of My Will for their life and ministry [true Kingdom-position].
* If you "truly" desire to know
what My Will is, you must "immerse" yourself in My Word, and know by faith that I shall make clear to you "all" of those things which you "need" to know as you enter into the fullness of your gifting and "Kingdom-position.
"Circumspectly" - watchful; cautious; vigilant; guarded;
...."See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because
the days are evil".... Ephesians 5:15-16 KJV
...."He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much".... Luke 16:10a
Our call in this hour is to "redeem the time" - and we do that by simply being faithful to give the Word of God preeminence day in and day out while, at the same time, being obedient in even the smallest,
most "seemingly" insignificant details of our life. If one is faithful in the "little" things THEN it is certain that they will be found faithful in the "big" things that the Father has planned in the glorious days just ahead. There are many children of God
who feel a little in the dark as far as what the "fullness" of their precious calling and destiny [in Christ] is but there are two specific things one MUST remember in this hour and they are:
All those who truly love God are being prepared [very intensely I might add] for their true "Kingdom-position" in a Glorious Church [a church without "spot or wrinkle"] [Ephesians 5:27]and, so, since we are the first generation that will be found walking in
the place of "abiding" in the fullness of the Father's highest purpose and mandate for the Church we do not really have any idea of the depth of the work of the Cross that must be done in each of our hearts [or how long that will take]. One thing for certain:
it will be worth the "wait" [in faith, obedience and patience]to see and experience what we will see and experience before the time we leave here!
2. We are being prepared
for something that does not YET exist fully in the natural [which is why one should not be trying to "fit in" somewhere - apart from the direct leading of the Holy Spirit] and, so, the most important thing for each and every one of us to do is to continue
on in fellowship with the Father and His Word in the "inner chamber" [secret place of His Presence] on a daily basis KNOWING [maintaining a deep trust and assurance in Him]that in His perfect timing He will reveal not only ALL things to our heart pertaining
to our gifting and calling but, also, open every door necessary to move us into the right place "corporately" [true spiritual environment]with those He has called us to be associated with in this final hour.
have only seen [up until this time] a "glimpse" of what the Father has planned for all those who truly love Him in this final hour, and since we are a people who are called to a walk of "pin-point accuracy" [perfect obedience] in the power of the Holy Spirit
[a people who refuse to deviate from the path that God has called them to]we must NOT be found attempting to "presumptuously" establish anything before its time in our "own" strength and understanding. We MUST be a people who learn to abide in "revelation"
knowledge - for from that place one cannot fail to accomplish ALL that the Father created them for [in Christ]from before the foundations of the earth.
run like mighty men, they climb the wall like soldiers; And they each march in line, nor do they deviate from their paths. They do not crowd each other, they march everyone in his path; When they burst through the defenses, They do not break ranks".... Joel
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people
who are found faithful in the "little things" - a people who are found redeeming the time at every turn. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
