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 

                                                     

 

 

WE NEED TO BE A PEOPLE WHO HOLD OUT - AT ALL COST TO OURSELVES - FOR A REVELATION OF THE FATHER'S HEART, WILL AND PURPOSE

 

Words of Prophecy:

 

*       A clean and pure heart is a heart that is always perfect [faithful and true] in its thoughts and motivations towards Me - and towards My Will.

 

*       A revelation of the Truth [no matter how convicting] is ALWAYS good news to a pure heart.

 

*       It will take a heart that is pure to "discern" accurately [righteously] in this final hour.

 

        ...."Draw near to God and He will draw near to you........purify your hearts, you double-minded".... James 4:8b

 

        ...."Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see [both know and understand] God".... Matthew 5:8 NASB

 

        ...."The wicked, in the haughtiness of his countenance, does not seek Him. All his thoughts are, 'There is no God’.... O Lord, Thou hast heard the desire of the humble; Thou wilt strengthen their heart, Thou wilt incline Thine ear".... Psalm 10: 4,17 NASB

 

        ...."He who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will disclose Myself to him... If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him".... John 14:21-23 NASB

 

        There are many who continually confess [by their words and actions] the fact that they cannot hear God. The only reason that one cannot hear God on a consistent basis is that they have failed to draw near to Him and humble themselves before Him - on HIS terms. Of course, there are times when there is what one might call a "divine silence". In these times of "seeming" silence there is no question that it is a test of our faith [attitude]. Will we still trust the Father? Will we continue to lean heavily [totally] on His Word - refusing to be moved by the seeming distance and aforementioned silence? Even if the Father doesn't speak in the manner and timing that we might deem necessary our simple, yet absolute, task is to continue to humble ourselves before Him - KNOWING that He will "reveal" to our heart the necessary revelation in His perfect timing.

 

        The child of God should NEVER allow themselves to become discouraged in any way in this matter of "spiritual knowledge" [revelation] for it is certain that the Father is faithful in EVERY way! And, thus, the attitude of every believer should be that [by faith] they know what they need to know in ANY given moment! If knowledge [revelation-discernment-wisdom] has not yet come forth in a certain area then the child of God must come to a full realization of the fact that they do not yet NEED to know whatever they might "think" they need to know in that moment.

 

        Sometimes, when the Father is silent for a time there is a real temptation for one to lean upon their own understanding [through sense-knowledge and perception] in an attempt to derive or discern something "spiritually" - through the working of the soul [intellect {mind}, will, emotions]. This fleshly striving of the soul [self-effort] is the chief catalyst to one "mentally ascending" to God's Word [Will], and the next thing one knows is that they are "receiving" all sorts of "revelation" - which, in reality, is darkness and a counterfeit of divine revelation ["Take heed that the light that is in you be not darkness" - Luke 11:35]. We need to be a people who hold out - at all cost to ourselves - for a revelation of the Father's heart, Will and purpose - in any given moment!

 

        If people truly desire to walk continually in a place wherein they are not ignorant of Satan's schemes then they must pursue a perfect obedience from the position of a heart "wholly given" - seeking the fullness of the Father's provision [His best]in every aspect of life and ministry at ALL times. If the child of God truly desires in their heart to be righteously motivated in ALL things THEN they will most certainly put themselves in a place wherein they behold the face of the Father - and, thus, they will come to know the deepest thoughts and intentions of His heart.

 

This applies to EVERY child of God as there is no "ungodly" [worldly type of] hierarchy in the Kingdom [in other words He does not love one of His children more than another] - although there is most certainly a divine "order". Ultimately, we will all - IN OUR FAITHFULNESS - be stepping into the same place [the unity of faith] [Ephesians 4:13], and that is: perfect relationship with the Father and His Word [eternally], and the perfect carrying out of His Will throughout the remainder of the Church Age [both individually and corporately]!

 

Prayer of Proclamation:

 

        Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who have come to know You - a people who, in knowing You, recognize Your Voice with great clarity at every turn. 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?

The LORD has spoken only when your heart is broken
with pain as deep as an Ocean so that HE can fill it
