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
SPIRITUAL REALITY - AND THE PRECIOUS BLOOD
Words of prophecy:
* Behold the "fullness of time", My beloved ones!
...."When the fullness of the time came, God
sent forth His Son".... Galatians 4:4a NASB
...."Do not [earnestly] remember the former things; neither consider the things of old. Behold,
I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert".... Isaiah 43:18-19 The Amplified Translation
...."Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter by the door into the fold of the sheep, but climbs up some other way, he is a thief and a robber. "But he who enters by the door is a shepherd of the
sheep. "To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. "When he puts forth all his own, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice. "A stranger they simply
will not follow, but will flee from him, because they do not know the voice of strangers".... John 10:1-5 NASB
...."For in Him the whole fullness of Deity (the
Godhead) continues to dwell in bodily form [giving complete expression of the divine nature]. And you are in Him, made full and having come to fullness of life [in Christ you too are filled with the Godhead - Father, Son and Holy Spirit - and reach full spiritual
stature]. And He is the Head of all rule and authority [of every angelic principality and power]. In Him also you were circumcised with a circumcision not made with hands, but in a [spiritual] circumcision [performed by] Christ by stripping off the body of
the flesh (the whole corrupt, carnal nature with its passions and lusts).
[Thus you were circumcised when] you were buried with Him in [your] baptism, in which you were also raised with Him [to a new life]
through [your] faith in the working of God [as displayed] when He raised Him up from the dead. And you who were dead in trespasses and in the uncircumcision of your flesh (your sensuality, your sinful carnal nature), [God] brought to life together with [Christ],
having [freely] forgiven us all our transgressions, Having cancelled and blotted out and wiped away the handwriting of the note (bond) with its legal decrees and demands which was in force and stood against us (hostile to us). This [note with its regulations,
decrees, and demands] He set aside and cleared completely out of our way by nailing it to [His] cross. [God] disarmed the principalities and powers that were ranged against us and made a bold display and public example of them, in triumphing over them in Him
and in it [the cross]".... Colossians 2:9-15 The Amplified Translation
It is coming down to the "fullness of time" for all those who are truly seeking
first the Kingdom. Thus, it is EXTREMELY important to hear ONLY the voice of the Shepherd - for all other voices [even though they may be good-intentioned]will SURELY only speak those things that will "allow" the Enemy to maintain his foothold [stronghold]
of fear [mistrust] in one's life.
Once and for all, every last one of God's precious children MUST continually position themselves to be brought to
the place [the secret place of His Presence] wherein they both gain and maintain a deep, deep revelation of the spiritual reality that Jesus is Lord - and that the precious Blood that He shed at Calvary is ALL-powerful!
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who have a deep and abiding revelation of Spiritual
Reality in our heart - a people who truly know and experience the "all-Powerfulness" of the precious Blood of Jesus, continually. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
