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 

                                                     

 

"NOW" IS THE BY-WORD AND TIME FRAME OF ALL

TRUE KINGDOM-LIVING AND SERVICE

 

Words of Prophecy:

 

*       If one's spirit-man is not "kept" in a place of dominance [through a continual diligence to guard one's heart] over the soul and the body then that one shall be found placing a greater importance on the "assimilation" of physical food [self-indulgence] over the assimilation of spiritual food [My Word].

 

*       A "spirit of lethargy" attempts to produce a state of "indifference" [apathy - lack of devotion]. The "physical symptoms" include excessive drowsiness or abnormally deep sleep. "Food intake" [both physical and spiritual - excessive physical food intake and lack of spiritual food intake] is a key "tool" in any effective attack that "they" [the evil spirits] attempt. When one of My children experiences an attack by this "spirit" they must simply "forge" ahead in perfect obedience ignoring the "physical symptoms", and as they speak the words that will take authority over this spirit the anointing that abides within them shall surely "crush" the attack and drive that "spirit" into oblivion!

 

*       It is the aim of a "spirit of lethargy" to make My children "forget" previous spiritual experiences [revelation] - through a sustained and oppressive attack [many times heaviness] against both the soul [mind, will, and emotions] and the body. But it can only accomplish what it sets out to accomplish if one of My children choose to walk by "sight" [be moved by what they "feel" by taking the five physical senses as their final authority] and not by faith. For if they walk by faith and not by sight then they shall surely remain "above" the attack against them. For it is certain that these evil spirits only have "dominion" in the "sense realm" [feelings - emotions].

 

"Lethargy" - indifference; Gk: "lethargos" - forgetful;

 

*       Many of My children need to make the transition in their heart from the "spirit of Martha" to the "spirit of Mary". For in this last hour it will only be those who forsake self-effort [and the "busyness" that is its spontaneous by-product] to enter into intimate fellowship with Me in the "inner chamber" that will enter into the fullness of their Kingdom-position - and the true Kingdom-service and living that is its spontaneous by-product [Luke 10:38-42].

 

*       The more that one "procrastinates" in the carrying out of the instructions I have given them concerning their life and ministry the more "inertia" [inaction, passivity] sets in. This opens the door to all manner of "hindering spirits" and, ultimately, leads that one into much confusion [through a cluttered mind] and darkness. Now is the hour for all those who truly love Me to forsake ALL procrastination through a "methodical" [one step at a time] obedience to the still, small voice of My Spirit - as He brings to their remembrance all that has been left undone. For this will SURELY empower one to immediately "rise higher" [Ephesians 2:6] - opening the door to great "clarity" [revelation], and the true Kingdom-service that is its spontaneous fruit.

 

"Procrastinate"- to defer action; delay; to put off till another day or time; prolong; postpone;

 

"Inertia"- inaction, especially with regard to effort and motion; inactivity; sluggishness; laziness;

 

          ...."So Joshua said to the sons of Israel, "How long will you put off entering to take possession of the land which the LORD, the God of your fathers, has given you?".... Joshua 18:3 NASB

 

          ...."Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the LORD will do wonders among you".... Joshua 3:5 NASB

 

        ... Then the Lord said to Moses, "Behold I will rain bread from Heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a day's portion every day that I may test them, whether or not they will walk in My instruction".... Exodus 16:4 NASB

 

        ...."feed me with the food that is needful for me".... Proverbs 30:8b The Amplified Translation

 

        ...."Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass".... 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 NASB

 

        How important it is for believers to fellowship with the Father and His Word each day in the "inner chamber" [and, thus, partake of the true spiritual food {the "bread of life"} that is necessary for them] - "knowing" that in their "daily portion" is the Life and power and Grace to sustain them perfectly for that day [on every level]. The inner man [spirit]is no different than the physical body in this regard - and, thus, a healthy diet of the Word of God is required "daily" to keep it strong, and allow it to remain in its rightful position of predominance over the soul [mind, will and emotions] and the body. As the child of God is faithful and obedient to gather the spiritual food needed [day by day]their eyes will no longer dwell on the future or turn back to the past, for they will have come to learn to live in the "present". "Now" is the by-word and time frame of all true Kingdom-living and service.

 

        The Holy Spirit, of course, will reveal "things to come" [John 16:13] - as we have need of revelation in that area - and He will also bring to our remembrance those things [mostly revelations] from the past that are beneficial to our walk in the present. But the bottom line is that we are to walk in the "now" - totally focused, and empowered by the Holy Spirit to walk in the Will of God - moment to moment. It is in this way alone that maximum fruit is born for the establishment of the true [Glorious] Church and the Kingdom in an individual's life and ministry.

 

        Another aspect of our time spent with the Father and His Word in the "inner chamber" is that we will come to understand His "refining process". The Father's process of refining and testing was not formed in order for Him to know what is in our hearts - for He knows all things! It is for us - in order that we might be continually transformed, and renewed in our minds to the way that He sees and thinks. It is the deepest heart-desire of the Father to separate us continually from sin and, indeed, from every "environment" that is apart from Christ in order that we might come to know Him ["as He truly is"]- and it is certain that He is faithful to finish the perfect work that He has begun in each of us.

 

        ...."Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God".... 2 Corinthians 7:1 NASB     

 

Prayer of Proclamation:

 

        Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who have come to know You [Your true Nature and Character] as You truly are - a people who represent You perfectly in every way. 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
