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
Words of prophecy:
One being a friend in the Kingdom and being a "friend" in the "world" are two entirely different things.
...."A friend loves at all times".... Proverbs 17:17a
...."Many a man proclaims his own loyalty, but who can find a trustworthy man?".... Proverbs 20:6 NASB
Righteous judgment [discernment] comes through "revelation" - and by revelation, alone.
...."Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment"....
John 7:24 NASB
...."Do not judge and criticize and condemn others, so that you may not be judged and criticized and condemned yourselves. For just as you judge
and criticize and condemn others, you will be judged and criticized and condemned, and in accordance with the measure you [use to] deal out to others, it will be dealt out again to you".... Matthew 7:1-2 The Amplified Translation
...."I can do nothing on My own initiative. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is just, because I do not seek My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me".... John 5:30 NASB
True friends [the God-kind of friends] do not judge unrighteously - nor do they "turn away" [against]. Make sure you focus on loving all those that the Father has placed in your path - whether that Love
is ever returned or not - as the exercising of divine Love ALWAYS bears great fruit - both now and throughout Eternity.
...."Therefore, my beloved brethren, be
steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord [words and acts of Love], knowing that your toil [obedience] is not in vain in the Lord".... 1 Corinthians 15:58 NASB
...."Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you".... Matthew 5:44 NASB
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who are found exercising divine Love - at ALL times. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
