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
IN THE KINGDOM, ONE OBTAINS THAT WHICH THEY DESIRE THROUGH A CONTINUED OBEDIENCE TO A "REVELATION" OF THE
Words of prophecy:
* Peace and joy are the spontaneous fruit of one being positioned in the Kingdom
while fear and confusion [turmoil] are the lot of those who have chosen to "fellowship" with ["love"] the world.
...."for the kingdom of God is not eating and
drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit".... Romans 14:17 NASB
...."Do not love or cherish the world or the things that are in the world.
If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world - the lust of the flesh [craving for sensual gratification] and the lust of the eyes [greedy longings of the mind] and the pride of life [assurance in one's own resources
or in the stability of earthly things] - these do not come from the Father but are from the world [itself]. And the world passes away and disappears, and with it the forbidden cravings [the passionate desires, the lust] of it; but he who does the will of God
and carries out His purposes in his life abides [remains] forever".... 1 John 2:15-17 The Amplified Translation
...."But seek [aim at and strive after] first
of all His kingdom and His righteousness [His way of doing and being right], and then all these things taken together will be given you besides".... Matthew 6:33 The Amplified Translation
...."If you live in Me [abide vitally united to Me] and My words remain in you and continue to live in your hearts, ask whatever you will [desire], and it shall be done for you".... John 15:7 The Amplified Translation
...."Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will
direct and make straight and plain your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; reverently fear and worship the Lord and turn [entirely] away from evil".... Proverbs 3:5-7 The Amplified Translation
In the Kingdom, one obtains that which they desire [godly desire] through a continued obedience to a "revelation" of the Father's Will abiding in their heart. In the "world", one obtains what they desire [self-desire] through the continual exercising of their
"own" strength and understanding [fear, self-exaltation, manipulation, control etc.].
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a Kingdom-people - an obedient people who continually hold to a revelation of Your Will/Word. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
