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
OBEDIENCE IS BOTH THE CATALYST AND THE SUSTAINER
Words of prophecy:
* Perfect obedience [Love] perfectly [spontaneously] "activates" [according to the need of the moment] every aspect of the Covenant in one's life and ministry.
- to make active or capable of action;
"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 [Who is the Spirit of Love, the Spirit of Christ etc.], alone.
...."Who is the man who fears the
LORD? He will instruct him in the way he should choose. His soul will abide in prosperity, and his descendants will inherit the land. The secret of the LORD is for those who fear Him, and He will make them know His covenant".... Psalms 25:12-14 NASB
...."If you will listen diligently to the voice of the Lord your God, being watchful to do all His commandments which I command you this day, the Lord your God will set you
high above all the nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you if you heed the voice of the Lord your God. Blessed shall you be in the city and blessed shall you be in the field. Blessed shall be the fruit of your body
and the fruit of your ground and the fruit of your beasts, the increase of your cattle and the young of your flock. Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading trough. Blessed shall you be when you come in and blessed shall you be when you go out. The Lord
shall cause your enemies who rise up against you to be defeated before your face; they shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways.
The Lord shall command the blessing upon you in
your storehouse and in all that you undertake. And He will bless you in the land which the Lord your God gives you. The Lord will establish you as a people holy to Himself, as He has sworn to you, if you keep the commandments of the Lord your God and walk
in His ways. And all people of the earth shall see that you are called by the name [and in the presence of] the Lord, and they shall be afraid of you. And the Lord shall make you have a surplus of prosperity, through the fruit of your body, of your livestock,
and of your ground, in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers to give you. The Lord shall open to you His good treasury, the heavens, to give the rain of your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hands; and you shall lend to many nations,
but you shall not borrow.
And the Lord shall make you the head, and not the tail; and you shall be above only, and you shall not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the Lord your God which I command
you this day and are watchful to do them. And you shall not turn aside from any of the words which I command you this day, to the right hand or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them".... Deuteronomy 28:1-14 The Amplified Translation
"Obedience" is both the catalyst to, and sustainer of, one walking into [and abiding in] the "fullness" of their precious inheritance [salvation - Covenant] in Christ.
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a holy people - a people who
seek, above all else, the perfect fulfillment of our precious Kingdom-position and destiny, in Christ. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
