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 SPONTANEOUS FRUIT OF A "HOLY CONVICTION"
Words of prophecy:
* Holding to "unworthiness" [in any form] opens the door to a "sin-consciousness" - the spontaneous fruit of which is doubt and unbelief [mistrust of Me].
- any belief or mind-set that constitutes one "believing" that that which they have actually been redeemed from is still to be in force in their life;
"Righteousness-consciousness" - a continual awareness
of who we "actually" are in Christ;
...."[There is] therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the
Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death".... Romans 8:1-2 KJV
...."But by His [the Father's]
doing you are IN Christ Jesus, Who became to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption".... 1 Corinthians 1:30 NASB
if any person is [engrafted] in Christ [the Messiah] he is a new creation [a new creature altogether]; the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come!".... 2 Corinthians 5:17 The Amplified Translation
...."But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh. For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh;
for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please".... Galatians 5:16-17 NASB
...."We are destroying speculations
and every lofty thing raised up against the true knowledge of God[and who we ALREADY are, in Christ], and we are taking every thought captive [through proclamation] to the obedience of Christ [a revelation of the Father's Will]".... 2 Corinthians 10:5 NASB
...."He [the Father] disciplines us for our certain good, that we may become sharers in His own holiness. For the time being no discipline brings joy,
but seems grievous and painful; but afterwards it yields a peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it [a harvest of fruit which consists in righteousness - in conformity to God's will in purpose, thought, and action, resulting in
right living and right standing with God]"....Hebrews 12:10b-11 The Amplified Translation
The spontaneous fruit of a "holy conviction" [as opposed
to the condemnation of the Enemy] is to ALWAYS right one's path - with a view to their entrance into [and fulfilment of] their precious Kingdom-position and destiny, in Christ. Therefore, it is of the utmost importance for every child of God to "allow" the
Holy Spirit to expose every ground of fear and pride in their heart [on a daily basis], while continually casting down [aside] "all" forms of condemnation from the Enemy.
For, as one is faithful to do these things, they will always be in a perfect position to receive, instead, the "gentle and loving" conviction that continually leads them out of harm's way [self-destructive practices rooted in fear and pride] - knowing [on
an ongoing basis] that the Father's loving Hand is mightily upon them.
Prayer of Proclamation:
we thank You and praise You that the "Spirit of conviction" [Who is the Spirit of Love] rests heavily upon - and works mightily within us - bringing all those You place in our path to a "point of decision". And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in
the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
...."Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision"....
Joel 3:14 NASB
