FIRE BY NIGHT

...."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
BE MOVED ONLY BY THAT WHICH THE HOLY SPIRIT
HAS "REVEALED" TO YOUR HEART
Words of Prophecy
* Truly I say to you, you shall reap the benefits of learning to walk above the sense realm; for in this last hour My faithful ones will
be moved ONLY by My Word [Will], and they shall refuse to deviate from the path which I have chosen for them - regardless of the futile attempts of the Evil One.
children must make the "transition" from putting their faith in "past experience" to putting their faith solely upon the revelation of My Word - in any given moment.
Natural hope is born out of a dependency upon people and things. Supernatural hope is born of a "revelation" of My Will [Word]. When Abraham was standing on My promise [Isaac] he had no "natural hope" to cling to for he was [as well as Sarah] well past any
natural ability to bring the promise to pass. So he "hoped [with a supernatural hope and faith] against hope" [hope based on physical circumstances and abilities] - and so it is in this hour as I call My people to an absolute faith and trust in My Ability,
Wisdom and Power, alone. Truly I say to you, the greatest exploits of this final hour will be the spontaneous fruit of a people who have learned to walk above the "sense realm" [soulish realm] - a holy people who have come to the place of "abiding" [dwelling]
in the supernatural with NO dependence whatsoever on anything other than My Word [a revelation of My Will] and My Spirit.
...."For we walk by faith, not by sight"....
2 Corinthians 5:7 NASB
...."Now 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 Translation
...."For the vision is yet for the appointed time; It hastens toward the goal and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it [in faith and patience]; For it will certainly come, it will not delay. Behold, as for the proud one, His soul is not right within
him; But the righteous will live by his faith".... Habakkuk 2:3-4 NASB
"sense knowledge" - that which is perceived by what one feels, hears, sees or thinks based on their outward circumstances; that which
is perceived through the soul [mind, will, emotions] - apart from "revelation" in the inner man [spirit, heart] through the Holy Spirit - Who is the Spirit of wisdom and revelation;
...."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
One of the key words of this hour: Do NOT be "moved" [influenced or moved off course] by what you feel or see or hear or think. Be moved ONLY by that which the Holy Spirit has "revealed" to your heart. As the conflict of the "kingdoms" continues to increase
in this final hour it is certain that each and every child of God needs to learn NOT to be motivated [influenced] by either "good feelings" or "bad feelings". For "feelings" have absolutely nothing to do with the "spiritual reality" behind every moment in
the temporal realm [for they are "subject to change"] - ONLY a "revelation" of God's Will [Word].
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who refuse to allow ourselves to be "moved" [influenced or moved off course] by our "feelings" - a people who, instead, set ourselves to abide in the place of "revelation". And we
declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
...."[For I always pray to] the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the
Father of glory, that He may grant you a spirit of wisdom and revelation [of insight into mysteries and secrets] in the [deep and intimate] knowledge of Him, by having the eyes of your heartv [spirit] flooded with light, so that you can know and understand
the hope to which He has called you, and how rich is His glorious inheritance in the saints [His set-apart ones]".... Ephesians 1:17-18 The Amplified Translation
