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 

                                                     

 

      

THE ACCESSING OF GOD'S GRACE [BY FAITH] ALWAYS RELEASES THE FORCE OF LOVE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS

   

Words of Prophecy

 

*       One of the deepest inherent tendencies of the flesh is to "depart from grace". For My Grace is accessed by faith alone - and there is no "true" [divine] faith [or trust] in the "flesh"!

 

*       My Grace is accessed by faith, and faith works by love - and love NEVER fails. Therefore, the only thing that is required of My children is to acknowledge Me in ALL of their ways. For, as they do, My superabundant Grace will flow continually flow [abound] towards them - empowering them perfectly to fulfil My highest purposes in any given moment.

 

*       My Grace is sufficient both to see My people into the fullness of their precious destiny, in Christ, and to sustain them in it - and ONLY My Grace [2 Corinthians 12:9].

 

        ...."By whom also we have access by faith into this Grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God".... Romans 5:2 KJV]

 

*       The deepest inherent tendency of the "flesh" is to depart from Grace [push Grace away] while the deepest inherent tendency of the "new creation" ["undefiled" reborn spirit] is to access My Grace [empowerment] continually - through an absolute faith and trust in Me.

 

*       If one "maintains" a root of mistrust in Me then it is certain that when the "storms" [pressures] come they will succumb to them - until such a time as they position themselves before Me in order that EVERY stronghold and vain [futile] imagination might be confronted by Me [2 Corinthians 10:3-5]. As one enters into the "inner chamber" [the secret place of My Presence] in this most critical hour I will SURELY break down every wall [barrier] of unbelief, and I will renew and strengthen their faith - that My Grace might enter into and flow in their life, replacing the very root of mistrust and fear that had held them down for so long [1 John 4:18]. In these days, perfect liberty [freedom] [2 Corinthians 3:17] on all fronts awaits the one who will truly forsake the desire to trust in their own understanding and strength [Proverbs 3:5-6].

 

"Succumb"- to give way to superior force; yield; surrender;

 

        ...."For God sets Himself against the proud [the insolent, the overbearing, the disdainful, the presumptuous, the boastful] - [and He opposes, frustrates, and defeats them], but gives grace (favor, blessing) to the humble [those who depend wholly on Him through faith]. [Prov. 3:34.] Therefore humble yourselves [demote, lower yourselves in your own estimation] under the mighty hand of God, that in due time He may exalt you, Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully. [Ps. 55:22.]

 

Be well balanced [temperate, sober of mind], be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour. Withstand him; be firm in faith [against his onset - rooted, established, strong, immovable, and determined], knowing that the same [identical] sufferings are appointed to your brotherhood (the whole body of Christians) throughout the world. And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace [Who imparts all blessing and favor], Who has called you to His [own] eternal glory in Christ Jesus, will Himself complete and make you what you ought to be, establish and ground you securely, and strengthen, and settle you".... 1 Peter 5:5-10 The Amplified Translation

 

        ...."The wicked flee when no one is pursuing, but the righteous are bold as a lion".... Proverbs 28:1 NASB

 

           ...."In the way [path] of righteousness [right standing and communion with the Father and His Word] is [the continual impartation of] life [Zoe - divine Life, Grace, divine Love, divine Light, divine Wisdom,  resurrection power - first to oneself and, then to all those who cross their path], and in its pathway there is no death [no death in any of its forms {darkness, fear,  sickness and disease etc.} can remain standing {functional}]".... Proverbs 12:28 NASB

 

        There is a vast difference in any given situation when fear is still ruling in one's heart. For fear [sense-knowledge] never even thinks to access God's Grace [as it is too busy attempting to just get by in its "own" wisdom and understanding]. Whereas, the accessing of God's Grace by faith [regardless of how one might "feel" at the time] ALWAYS releases the force of Love and Righteousness - thus, causing the one who placed their trust entirely upon the Father to overcome every time, in even the most potentially trying [overwhelming] situations.

 

"Sense knowledge" - that which is perceived by what one feels, hears, sees or thinks based on their outward circumstances; that which is perceived through the soul [mind, will, emotions] - apart from "revelation" in the inner man [spirit, heart]through the Holy Spirit - Who is the Spirit of wisdom and revelation;

 

        ...."When I am afraid, I will put my trust in You".... Psalm 56:3 NASB

 

        ...."You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You. So trust in the Lord (commit yourself to Him, lean on Him, hope confidently in Him) forever; for the Lord God is an everlasting Rock [the Rock of Ages]".... Isaiah 26:3-4 The Amplified Translation

 

Prayer of Proclamation:

 

        Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who have come to trust in You with ALL of our heart - a people who are found abiding in a perfect and constant [supernatural] peace and joy. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.

GOD is sitting on HIS THRONE
TEARS are streaming down HIS Face
FOR Lack of knowledge MY PEOPLE shall die
HOW come you Believers are so shy?
