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
Word of prophecy:
* The continual exercising
of faith [patience], love and obedience NEVER fails to accomplish My Will [the fullness of My divine purpose] perfectly.
...."And we desire that each one of you
show the same diligence so as to realize the full assurance of hope until the end, so that you will not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises"..... Hebrews 6:11-12 NASB
* "Perfect patience" is the spontaneous fruit of an absolute faith, working through a perfect Love, manifesting in a perfect obedience.
...."Therefore I, the prisoner of the Lord, implore you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing tolerance for one another in love, being diligent to preserve the unity
of the Spirit in the bond of peace".... Ephesians 4:1-3 NASB
From time to time, I am asked if I have ever been part of a true "corporate" spiritual environment
- such as the type I have written about for many years now. As in every other part of the vision of the Glorious Church the Father has blessed me with, He has given me "glimpses" through the years - and, thus, I have been blessed in being associated [in different
seasons] with those that I esteem as some of the finest people walking the face of this earth. However, the "fullness" of His plan has not yet manifested fully in the physical, as He is preparing a holy people in the secret place of His Presence - a people
who refuse to live or move or have their being apart from Christ [a "revelation" of the Father's Will].
Perfect patience in this season on the part of those who
truly love God will SURELY see ALL things unfold in their lives [both individually and corporately] EXACTLY how the Father planned it out for them - from before the foundations of the earth - but, again it must be clearly understood that ALL things concerning
the true Church and Kingdom must [and will] be done by "revelation" in this final hour.
...."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 that
You have raised us up a people of patience - a people, who through a steadfast trust, allow You to accomplish the fullness of Your purpose at every turn. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
...."For in Him [Christ - the Word of God] we live and move and have our being [entire existence]".... Acts 17:28a The Amplified Translation
