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
THE "PERFECT PLATFORM"
Words of prophecy:
* Greatly shall those who have been faithful to "hold fast the vision" be exalted [given a platform] in this hour.
...."Then the Lord answered me and said, 'Record the vision and inscribe it on tablets, that the one who reads it may run. For the vision is yet for the appointed time; It hastens toward the goal and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it; For it
will certainly come, it will not delay. Behold, as for the proud one, his soul is not right within him; But the righteous will live by his faith".... Habakkuk 2:2-4 NASB
...."And He began speaking a parable to the invited guests when He noticed how they had been picking out the places of honor at the table, saying to them, 'When you are invited by someone to a wedding feast, do not take the place of honor, for someone more
distinguished than you may have been invited by him, and he who invited you both will come and say to you, 'Give your place to this man,' and then in disgrace you proceed to occupy the last place. But when you are invited, go and recline at the last place,
so that when the one who has invited you comes, he may say to you, 'Friend, move up higher'; then you will have honor in the sight of all who are at the table with you. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted"....
Luke 14:7-11 NASB
...."Jesus said, 'Truly I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or farms, for
My sake and for the gospel's sake, but that he will receive a hundred times as much now in the present age, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and farms, along with persecutions; and in the age to come, eternal life. But many who are
first will be last, and the last, first".... Mark 10:29-31 NASB
There are few [comparative to the number of people who call themselves a "Christian"]who have
a heart to receive the "absolute" Truths [principles] of "the Gospel of the Kingdom". Only a heart that keeps on diligently seeking the Face of the Father each day will position themselves to receive ALL that He has planned for them - and, in the glorious
days ahead, it is certain that they will be given [supernaturally] the "perfect platform" to release ALL that He has revealed to their heart..
...."For many are
called, but few are [found fit enough to be] chosen".... Matthew 22:14 NASB
...."But Jesus said to him, 'No one, after putting his hand to the plow and looking
back, is fit for the kingdom of God'".... Luke 9:62 NASB
...."Jesus was going throughout all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel
of the kingdom, and healing every kind of disease and every kind of sickness among the people".... Matthew 4:23 NASB
...."This gospel of the kingdom shall be
preached in the whole world as a testimony".... Matthew 24:14 NASB
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank
You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who give the absolute Truth [Kingdom-principles] preeminence in our lives. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
