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
WHERE ONE'S EYES ARE "FIXED" INDICATES
WHAT THEIR HEART IS TRULY BELIEVING
Words of prophecy:
* Where one's eyes are "fixed" indicates what their heart is truly believing.
points directly to; makes evident;
...."Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith,
who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God".... Hebrews 12:1-2 NASB
we walk by faith [revelation], not by sight [sense knowledge and perception]".... 2 Corinthians 5:7 NASB
"Sense knowledge" - that which is perceived by what one feels, hears, sees or thinks based on their
outward circumstances; that which is perceived through the soul [mind, will, emotions] - apart from "revelation" in the inner man [spirit, heart] through the Holy Spirit - Who is the Spirit of wisdom and revelation;
"Proficient" - well-advanced or competent; skilled;
No one will ever enter into a high degree of "proficiency" in faith as long as they continue to
keep their eyes "fixed" [focused] on the "things that are seen".
...."we consider and look not to the things that are seen [the lower reality - that which is
real to the five physical senses] but to the things that are unseen [through faith in the higher Reality of God's Word]; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting) [subject to change], but the things that are invisible are deathless
and everlasting [Eternal]".... 2 Corinthians 4:18 The Amplified Translation
Prayer of Proclamation:
we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who have become "proficient" in our faith - a people who continually take Your Word/Will as our final authority. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your
greatest Glory. Amen.
