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
Words of prophecy:
An "abiding" faith [trust] is a certain and ongoing catalyst to a holy excitement and eager expectation of My Will coming to pass perfectly in one's life.
faith is the assurance [the confirmation, the title deed] of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses]".... Hebrews 11:1 The Amplified
In this season, the Holy Spirit is moving powerfully - preparing the way, with great precision, in the lives of all those who are truly willing to
yield to Him. Also, the Father has been speaking to me about positioning myself to continually "expect the unexpected" and that, along with the revelation of the importance of one setting their heart on the "increase of the increase" [of Kingdom blessings]
through an "abiding" obedience, has produced a divine expectancy in me that literally ANYTHING that God has promised me throughout the years could happen at any moment [according to His perfect unfolding and order, of course]. He also told me to "be VERY excited"
- which, in itself, was exciting!
Expecting the "unexpected" takes one far above [in their faith] the things that are "seen" [or, in other words, the things that
"could" be possible - which things, without doubt, would severely limit God] to a "fixation" on the things that "are not seen" - a place wherein "the sky is the limit".
...."we consider and look not to the things that are seen [the lower reality - that which is real to the five physical senses] but to the things that are unseen [through faith in the higher Reality of God's Word]; for the things that are visible are temporal
(brief and fleeting) [subject to change], but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting [Eternal]".... 2 Corinthians 4:18 The Amplified Translation
The Father has all things already planned out for the entire remnant Church - between now and the time we leave here. Our task, then, is simply to follow the leading of the still, small voice of the Holy Spirit - day in and day out - knowing [maintaining having
a deep assurance in our heart - through revelation] that we are continually in the right place at the right time, doing the right thing, according to the Father's highest purpose, in any given moment.
...."For we are God's [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living
the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live]".... Ephesians 2:10 The Amplified Translation
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You have raised us up a people who are found continually "expecting the unexpected" - by the power of Your mighty Hand. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
...."Now to Him Who, by [in consequence of] the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above
all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams] - to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen [so be it]".... Ephesians 3:20-21 The Amplified
