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
THE VISION OF THE ICEBREAKER
I saw an
"icebreaker" with a "molten hot" front plowing through ice in a remote northern sea. It was a very cold, dark and unpleasant environment on the "icebreaker". In the wake of the "icebreaker" a clear passage was forged.
The Father spoke to me and said:
The "icebreaker" is representative of those of My children who have truly laid their lives down to be vessels of My
Love in this hour.
The "molten hot" front was representative of the love that burns [as liquid fire - holy fire] in the hearts of all those who are "wholly given"
to Me in this final hour - an anointing of love that will reveal My passionate love for My children. This Love will also break down EVERY stronghold of fear in the lives of those who truly desire to be free.
The "ice" represents the coldness [hardness] of heart [through fear, mistrust, unbelief, unworthiness etc.] that has caused many to be unable to receive the "fullness" of My love for them - and, thus, they are not able to know Me in the way that I desire to
be known by each and every one of My children.
The cold, dark and "unpleasant environment" [on and around the "icebreaker"] is representative of how difficult
it is for those of My children who have made the "quality decision" to love at all cost to themselves to "maintain" the love walk at times - but, yet, they continue to exercise love even in the face of much rejection and reproach - KNOWING that all that they
have said and done in love is NEVER in vain [and that it will have Eternal results - both now and in the ages to come]. In this I am well pleased!
The fact that
a "clear passage" was forged in the icebreaker's "wake" is representative of the spiritual fruit that the holy vessels of My Love will bear in this final hour. Not only was the hardness of heart broken [smashed] in the ones they ministered to [interceded for]in
their faith, love and obedience it opened up a "passage way" for many others to enter into right relationship with Me - and, thus, experience the fullness of My Love for them. From this point of liberty they are THEN able to enter into the "fullness" of their
true Kingdom-position and destiny, in Christ.
...."There is no fear in love [dread does not exist], but full-grown (complete, perfect) love turns fear out of
doors and expels every trace of terror! For fear brings with it the thought of punishment, and [so] he who is afraid has not reached the full maturity of love [is not yet grown into love's complete perfection]. 1 John 4:18 The Amplified Translation
...."Thanks be to God, Who gives us the victory [making us conquerors] through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be firm (steadfast), immovable, always
abounding in the work of the Lord [always being superior, excelling, doing more than enough in the service of the Lord], knowing and being continually aware that your labor in the Lord is not futile [it is never wasted or to no purpose]".... 1 Corinthians
15:57-58 The Amplified Translation
...."Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious,
does not display itself haughtily. It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God's love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is
not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong]. It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail.
Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening]. Love never fails [never fades out or becomes
obsolete or comes to an end]".... 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 The Amplified Translation
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up as pure vessels of Your Love - a divine Love that will smash the strongholds of the Enemy, setting many, many captives free in the process. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the
Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
