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
THE EXERCISING OF AN ABSOLUTE FAITHIS A CERTAIN CATALYST TO THE RELEASE OF GREAT SPIRITUAL FORCE AND PRESSURE AGAINST THE ENEMY
Words of Prophecy
* My Word states, "Greater is He [My Spirit] that is in you, than he that is in the world" [1 John 4:4]. But how many of My children continually believe it and act upon it?
* My children must always keep in mind that I am NEVER defeated!
* The continual exercising of true [divine] love "confuses"
the forces of darkness. Therefore, the greatest weapon at the disposal of My children - in any given moment - is for them to be found "abiding" in love.
the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD gives grace and glory; No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly. O LORD of hosts, how blessed [divinely empowered and prospered] is the man who trusts in You!".... Psalms 84:11-12 NASB
...."Behold! I have given you authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions, and [supernatural ability] over all the power that the enemy [possesses]; and nothing
shall in any way harm you".... Luke 10:19 The Amplified Translation
...."Little children, you are of God [you belong to Him] and have [already] defeated and overcome
them [the agents of the antichrist], because He Who lives in you is greater [mightier] than he who is in the world".... 1 John 4:4 The Amplified Translation
disarmed [thoroughly defeated] the principalities and powers that were ranged against us and made a bold display and public example of them, in triumphing over them in Him and in it [the cross]".... Colossians 2:15 The Amplified Translation
...."and this is the victory that conquers the world, even our faith".... 1 John 5:4b The Amplified Translation
...."But thanks be to God, who ALWAYS leads us in triumph in Christ, and manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place".... 2 Corinthians 2:14 NASB
"disarray" - disorder;
The Enemy is always trying many different tactics in order to prevent the children of God from entering into the Father's "best" [highest Will and purpose] for them in any
given moment. I remember how many times early in my walk that I allowed the Enemy to "prevent" the things that God had for me in that time from coming forth. Finally, I came to the realization that I [after receiving a revelation of the Father's Will] just
simply needed to step out in faith [love]and obedience, and that, in doing so, the Enemy would back down - EVERY TIME. For the exercising of an absolute faith [perfect love and obedience] is a CERTAIN catalyst to the release of great spiritual force and pressure
- a great spiritual force and pressure that will cause the Enemy to flee at every turn.
Therefore, one must ALWAYS be found remembering that he is an ALREADY
DEFEATED foe - and, also, that he is a coward at heart [at the core of his prideful nature]. So, then, it is simply a matter of one walking forth in righteousness ["the righteous are as bold as a lion"] [Proverbs 28:1b] and, in doing so, be found
continually exerting [with great power and accuracy] the various Kingdom-forces [faith, love, wisdom, righteousness, truth etc.] against him. The Enemy is absolutely terrified of the Holy Spirit [which continually keeps the Enemy and his forces in much confusion
and disarray in the presence of those who are filled to overflowing with Him].
The "Greater One" abiding within us [Who is the Spirit of wisdom and revelation
- among many other things]is ALWAYS greater in power and wisdom than the Enemy's schemes and attacks - and, therefore, empowers us to overcome victoriously ALL that is of [and in]the "world" [the present "world system" that the Enemy rules over] as we continually
exercise faith in [stand upon] the Word of God.
...."Hear my cry, O God; Give heed to my prayer. From the end of the earth I call to You when my heart is faint;
Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I. For You have been a refuge for me, a tower of strength against the enemy".... Psalms 61:1-3 NASB
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who are well aware of the mighty Holy Spirit abiding [dwelling] within us - a people are continually exerting great spiritual force
and pressure on the Enemy and his forces, at every turn. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you".... Luke 10:19 NASB
