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
ONLY A HOLY PEOPLE
Words of prophecy:
It is impossible for one to obey Me apart from the continued empowerment of My Spirit [Who is the Spirit of wisdom and revelation and the Spirit of Love].
"Perfect 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, alone.
..."All these blessings will come upon you and overtake you if you obey the LORD your God.... The LORD shall cause your enemies who rise up against you to be defeated before you; they will come out against you one way and will flee before you seven ways. The
LORD will command the blessing upon you in your barns and in all that you put your hand to, and He will bless you in the land which the LORD your God gives you. The LORD will establish you as a holy people to Himself, as He swore to you, if you keep the commandments
of the LORD your God and walk in His ways. So all the peoples of the earth will see that you are called by the name of the LORD, and they will be afraid of you".... Deuteronomy 28:2,7-10 NASB
....And He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel [of the Kingdom] to all creation".... Mark 16:15 NASB
...."Christ loved the church and gave
Himself up for her, so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the Word, that He might present the church to Himself in glorious splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such things [that she might be holy and faultless]"....
Ephesians 5:25-27 The Amplified Translation
It is ONLY a holy people [a people who abide in the place of a heart "wholly given"] that can carry out,
to perfection, the mandate that has been given to the Church.
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank
You and praise You that You have raised us up a holy people - a holy people who are found worshipping You in spirit and in Truth at every turn. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
...."There comes an hour and it is now, when the genuine worshippers shall worship the Father in a spiritual sphere, and in the sphere of truth. For indeed, the Father is
seeking such as these who worship Him. God as to His nature is spirit, and for those who are worshipping, it is necessary in the nature of the case to be worshipping in a spiritual sphere, and in the sphere of truth".... John 4:23-24 The Wuest Translation
