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
WHEN ONE IS FOUND "ABIDING" IN PERFECT OBEDIENCE THEY NEED NEVER FEAR WHETHER OR NOT THEY ARE WALKING IN LOVE
Words of prophecy:
* Not only do [righteous] words flow out of a heart filled to overflowing with an abundance of My Word - so does "obedience".
"Obedience"- the seeking after and gaining a "revelation" of God's Will and, THEN, carrying it out to fulfillment from beginning to end [regardless of how long that may take] in the unction and power of the Holy Spirit
[Who is the Spirit of Love, the Spirit of Christ etc.], alone.
...."Out of the fullness [the overflow, the superabundance] of the heart the mouth speaks"....
...."For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind".... 2 Timothy 1:7 KJV
...."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 13:4-8a The Amplified Translation
When one is found "abiding" [dwelling] in perfect obedience they need NEVER fear whether or not they are walking in Love concerning all those in their sphere of existence. For, in being led and empowered
by the Holy Spirit [Who is the Spirit of Love], it is certain that ALL that they are led to say and do [or not do - as the case may be] will be the spontaneous fruit of divine Love.
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who are set on allowing NO unwholesome [unrighteously motivated] word to proceed forth from our mouth.
And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
