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 

                                                     

 

TRUE FRIENDSHIP - TOWARDS BOTH GOD AND MAN

 

Words of Prophecy

 

*       One who does not seek to love [obey] Me at all times walks apart from the spirit of true friendship.

 

*       True friendship [those I have divinely connected] in the Body of Christ is an eternal bond - both forged and maintained by My love, alone.

 

*       There is no such thing as "true" friendship [relationship] apart from love.

 

*       Friendship, loyalty [faithfulness - trustworthiness] and true Covenant-relationship in the Kingdom are a far different thing than one sees in the "world" because no matter how good a thing looks [appears] in the "world" the root of it is still ALWAYS self-serving. Whereas, in the Kingdom, ALL things are continually rooted and grounded in My Love - with a view to carrying out My highest Will and purpose, alone, for all those in one's sphere of existence.

 

*       It is ONLY as a heart is first given "wholly" to Me that it can ever be wholly given to love and trust another in true Covenant-relationship [marriage, friendship, ministry etc. in the Kingdom]. The true Covenant-relationship that I have ordained for My people is literally a manifestation of Heaven on earth - devoid of the soulish entrapments and self-seeking and controlling [dominating] ways of the "lower life". In this hour, I am raising up "glorious connections" that will manifest the reality of true Kingdom-relationship [on every level of relationship], and it is certain that they will be a great "sign and wonder" to all who cross their path.

 

*       Natural "loyalty" [soulish relationship or friendship] remains "faithful" [trustworthy] to another only to the degree that that one continues to serve their "own" purposes [gratifies soulish {selfish} desire within them].

 

"Loyalty" - faithfulness; allegiance; devotion;

 

*       Human "love" is just simply selfishness refined - and is a counterfeit to Divine Love!

 

        ...."Many a man proclaims his own loyalty, But who can find a trustworthy man?".... Proverbs 20:6 NASB

 

        ...."A friend loves [with a Divine Love] at all times".... Proverbs 17:17 NASB

 

        ...."He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me"..... Matthew 10:37-38 NASB

 

        ...."Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends".... John 15:13 NASB

 

        ...."A new commandment I [Jesus] give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love [divine Love - which is self-sacrificing] for one another".... John 13:34-35 NASB

 

        It must be clearly understood that "human nature" [self] will ALWAYS forsake others when its own agenda is compromised in any way - hence the extreme importance of  being connected and established [fellowshipping only] with those who are seeking the Lord with ALL of their heart. One can only be found loyal and true to another [or to the Will of God]to the extent that the love of God has been shed abroad in their heart by the Holy Spirit.

 

For unless one allows the Holy Spirit to have "full sway" in their life it is certain that they will NOT, ultimately, be found trustworthy [either in the sight of God or in the sight of man]. Out of the twelve disciples, twelve abandoned Jesus. This demonstrates perfectly that 100% will go their own way if left to their "own" devices - especially in times of great pressure. In other words, when things get tough, 100% of those walking apart from the place of "abiding" in the Holy Spirit will abandon us.

 

        Soulish relationships are not reliable in ANY way - as they are "self-seeking" on a continual basis [sometimes subtle and sometimes not so subtle]. It is ONLY "righteous [true Kingdom] relationships" [again, those relationships that are ordered and directed and empowered by the Love of God] that will hold together in times of great duress - even when one "suffers" in the process for staying loyal and true to another.

 

It is ONLY a relationship based on unconditional Love and the continual pursuit of God's highest Will and purpose in any given moment or circumstance that has any meaning or weight in the establishing of the true [Glorious]Church and the Kingdom! In this hour, all "soulish relationships" will begin to be exposed for exactly what they are: a relationship that is not rooted and grounded in the Love of God but, rather, one that is rooted and grounded in a "love" for themselves [their own agendas] above a true Love for God [from the position of a heart that is "wholly given" to Him]- and for others.

 

        It is ONLY as one allows the Holy Spirit [Who is the Spirit of Love]  to both expose and remove every "ground" of fear within [insecurities and mistrust produced by past experiences etc.] their heart that they will become "trustworthy" - and, thus, come to "abide" [continually dwell] in the place of "true" friendship - to both God and man.

 

Prayer of Proclamation:

 

        Father, we thank You and praise You that, in this most critical and glorious hour, You are blessing us with a continually deeper revelation of what it really means for one to abide in "true relationship" in the Kingdom. 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?
