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
THE CALL TO A "FASTED STATE" [LIFESTYLE]
Words of Prophecy
* To the degree that one remains "fasted", it is to that degree that they shall remain sensitive to those things which could be considered "poisonous" to their being.
* The "fasted life" includes no "maintaining" of self-desire!
* The "fasted life" [obedient
life] is the key to a "continuous" flow of "revelation".
* Rising early and living the "fasted" [disciplined] life are "synonymous".
"synonymous" - closely related or alike in significance or effect;
* I call all those of My children who truly desire to enter into the fullness of My Glory
in this Third Day [Hosea 6:1-3] to live a "fasted" [obedient] life. This simply means to live a life that is separated from ANYTHING [those things that are not "profitable" for the true work of the Kingdom] that would keep them apart from the perfect fellowship
[relationship] that I so desire with them [Isaiah 58:6-12].
* It is very important for all those who are diligently pursuing the "fullness" of the true Kingdom-position
and service they are called to in this final hour to "humble" their soul [mind, will, emotions] and body with "obedience" [the denial of the self-life to obey My Spirit and do My Will] in this hour. This will SURELY lead them into the place of abiding in a
"fasted" [obedient] lifestyle - a "lifestyle" that will cause ALL that I have already prepared for them to continually overtake them according to My highest purpose in any given moment [Ephesians 2:10].
...."He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much".... Luke 16:10a NASB
...."But I say, walk and live [habitually] in the [Holy] Spirit
[responsive to and controlled and guided by the Spirit]; then you will certainly not gratify the cravings and desires of the flesh [of human nature without God]".... Galatians 5:16 The Amplified Translation
The defining of a "fasted state" is unique to every child of God [at least as far as how it will manifest in each individual's life] because we are all unique in our make up before the Father [as well as have different callings]. So the key to one keeping
themselves [abiding] in "fasted state" is for them to be obedient to the Word [Will] of God and the still, small voice of the Holy Spirit - in even the smallest of details of life and ministry. So, summarizing, any time you think of a "fasted" lifestyle think
of a lifestyle of obedience - as they are one and the same.
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You
and praise You that You have raised us up an obedient people - a people who maintain a "fasted state" before You. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
...."feed me with the food [both spiritual and physical] that is needful for me".... Proverbs 30:8b The Amplified Translation
