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
ALL THINGS MUST BE CARRIED OUT IN THE POWER
AND UNCTION OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
Words of prophecy:
* One does not enter into perfect liberty keeping their eyes fixed on what the Enemy has done [or is doing] but, rather, what I have done
[and continue to do] through My Precious Son [His "finished work"].
...."Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty [emancipation
from bondage, freedom]. [Isa. 61:1, 2.] And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor
and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit".... 2 Corinthians 3:17-18 The Amplified Translation
...."let us run
with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith".... Hebrews 12:1-2 NASB
Teaching and preaching [as well as everything else in the Kingdom] MUST be carried out in the power and unction of the Holy Spirit [Who is the Spirit of wisdon and revelation], alone. For even if someone
had a "seeming degree of truth" in their message, without the Holy Spirit it still remains an impartation of death and darkness - without exception. Not only does this [impartation of death and darkness] keep the captives from being set free it also potentially
perpetuates a mind-set [stronghold] in them of not truly desiring perfect liberty with ALL of their heart - and this, then, keeps them from truly "uniting" their faith with a "revelation" of God's Word.
...."And when I came to you, brethren, I did not come with superiority of speech or of wisdom, proclaiming to you the testimony of God. For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. I was with you in weakness and in fear
and in much trembling, and my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God".... 1 Corinthians 2:1-5 NASB
...."So we see that they were not able to enter [into His rest], because of their unwillingness to adhere to and trust in and rely on God [unbelief had shut them out]"....
[Num. 14:1-35]".... Hebrews 3:19 The Amplified Translation
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You
and praise You that You have raised us up a people who seek to move in the power and unction of the precious Holy Spirit - in ALL things. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
