FIRE BY NIGHT

"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 FULLNESS OF THE MINISTRY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
Words of prophecy:
* When one truly partakes of the comfort ministry of My Spirit [Who is the Spirit of Love] they experience a great "resilience" concerning
those things [reproach, reviling, persecution etc.] that the Enemy attempts to heap upon them - with a view to keeping them far below the fullness of their true Kingdom-position and destiny, in Christ.
- the power or ability to recover readily from adversity, or the like;
In these days, the depth [fullness] of the Holy Spirit's ministry is going to be revealed
to [and experienced by] all those who are truly seeking the fullness of their true Kingdom-position and destiny, in Christ. Two of the spontaneous fruit of this revelation" [and experiencing] of the "fullness" of the Holy Spirit's ministry [on a corporate
level] will be the establishing of a "true" working five-fold ministry and a holy people who operate in the gifts of the Holy Spirit [the way they were meant to be used in their fullness] with a "pin-point accuracy".
Therefore, we must continue to remain ready [expectant with a holy expectation] at all cost to ourselves - "knowing" [having and maintaining a deep revelation of the spiritual reality] that ALL that the
Father has promised us shall SURELY come to pass in our lives in ways that are exceeding abundantly beyond all we could have ever have comprehended [with anything less than a "supernatural comprehension"]. Hold to a steadfast faith, love and obedience - "knowing"
that the things that are now shall soon be NO longer!
...."But the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit,
Whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will cause you to recall [will remind you of, bring to your remembrance] everything I have told you".... John 14:26 The Amplified
...."But when He, the Spirit of Truth [the Truth-giving Spirit] comes, He will guide you into all the Truth [the whole, full Truth]. For He will not
speak His own message [on His own authority]; but He will tell whatever He hears [from the Father; He will give the message that has been given to Him], and He will announce and declare to you the things that are to come [that will happen in the future]"....
John 16:13 The Amplified Translation
...."And His gifts were [varied; He Himself appointed and gave men to us] some to be apostles [special
messengers], some prophets [inspired preachers and expounders], some evangelists preachers of the Gospel, traveling missionaries], some pastors [shepherds of His flock] and teachers. His intention was the perfecting and the full equipping of the saints [His
consecrated people], [that they should do] the work of ministering toward building up Christ's body [the church], [That it might develop] until we all attain oneness in the faith and in the comprehension of the [full and accurate] knowledge of the Son of God,
that [we might arrive] at really mature manhood [the completeness of personality which is nothing less than the standard height of Christ's own perfection], the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ and the completeness found in Him.
So then, we may no longer be children, tossed [like ships] to and fro between chance gusts of teaching and wavering with every changing wind of doctrine, [the prey of] the cunning and cleverness of unscrupulous men,
[gamblers engaged] in every shifting form of trickery in inventing errors to mislead".... Ephesians 4:11-14 The Amplified Translation
...."Now there are varieties
of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are varieties of ministries, and the same Lord. There are varieties of effects, but the same God who works all things in all persons. But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. For
to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, and to another the word of knowledge according to the same Spirit; to another faith by the same Spirit, and to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, and to another the effecting of miracles, and
to another prophecy, and to another the distinguishing of spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, and to another the interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually just as He wills"....
1 Corinthians 12:4-11 NASB
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You for the ministry
of the precious Holy Spirit. There are no words to adequately describe our deep appreciation for all that He is to us. And we thank You for the fullness of His ministry to us in this hour - and declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus -
to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
