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
ONE OF THE MAIN TASKS OF A "TRUE WORKING" FIVE-FOLD MINISTRY IS SIMPLY TO BE A VESSEL OF "CONFIRMATION"
Words of prophecy:
* One's entrance into the place [the "inner chamber", abiding in Christ] wherein they begin to see ALL things [including others] through
My eyes [heart] is of the utmost importance - from now until the end of the age.
....."He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High Will abide in the shadow
of the Almighty".... Psalms 91:1 NASB
...."Dwell in Me, and I will dwell in you. [Live in Me, and I will live in you.] Just as no branch can bear fruit of itself
without abiding in (being vitally united to) the vine, neither can you bear fruit unless you abide in Me".... John 15:4 The Amplified Translation
gifts were [varied; He Himself appointed and gave men to us] some to be apostles (special messengers), some prophets (inspired preachers and expounders), some evangelists (preachers of the Gospel, traveling missionaries), some pastors (shepherds of His flock)
and teachers. His intention was the perfecting and the full equipping of the saints (His consecrated people), [that they should do] the work of ministering toward building up Christ's body (the church), [That it might develop] until we all attain oneness in
the faith and in the comprehension of the [full and accurate] knowledge of the Son of God, that [we might arrive] at really mature manhood (the completeness of personality which is nothing less than the standard height of Christ's own perfection), the measure
of the stature of the fullness of the Christ and the completeness found in Him.
So then, we may no longer be children, tossed [like ships] to and fro between chance gusts of teaching and wavering with
every changing wind of doctrine, [the prey of] the cunning and cleverness of unscrupulous men, [gamblers engaged] in every shifting form of trickery in inventing errors to mislead. Rather, let our lives lovingly express truth [in all things, speaking truly,
dealing truly, living truly]. Enfolded in love, let us grow up in every way and in all things into Him Who is the Head, [even] Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One). For because of Him the whole body (the church, in all its various parts), closely joined
and firmly knit together by the joints and ligaments with which it is supplied, when each part [with power adapted to its need] is working properly [in all its functions], grows to full maturity, building itself up in love".... Ephesians 4:11-16 The Amplified
One of the main tasks of a "true working" five-fold ministry is simply to be a vessel of "confirmation" for those who have placed fellowship with
the Father [and His Word] in the "inner chamber" first and foremost in their lives - and, thus, already have "seeds of revelation" planted in their heart from their time spent with Him [Them].
Father, we thank You and praise You that, in this hour, You are raising up a true working five-fold ministry in Your remnant Church throughout the
earth. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
