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
WE HAVE BEEN "DELIVERED"
[PAST TENSE] FROM ALL OF OUR FEARS
Words of prophecy:
*____One is not able to behold [see and experience fully] the
"new thing" until they forsake [in their heart] the "former things"!
____...."I sought the LORD, and He answered me, and delivered me [past tense] from all my fears. They looked to Him and were radiant,
and their faces will never be ashamed".... Psalms 34:4-5 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
...."Remember Lot's wife! [Gen. 19:26.] Whoever tries to preserve his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life will preserve and quicken it"..... Luke 17:32-33 The Amplified Translation
____Many, up until this time, have continued to run from any form of "pressure" [unpleasantness] - the pressure[s] that one is certain to experience as they seek to navigate upon the "narrow path" [the highway of holiness
they are called to walk upon]. But, it is certain, that as one sets aside ALL fear [and, thus, begins to embrace in a steadfast faith, Love and obedience, any challenge that crosses their path] it is certain that they will gain much, much revelation in their
continual exercising of faith [Love] and, thus, they will come to a deep understanding of the spiritual reality of how things truly work in the Kingdom [spiritual realm].
Also, they will continually experience
the power of the Father's Love [Grace] to accomplish the "fullness" of His Will and highest purpose - even though they may "feel" like they are completely powerless at times [in relation to what we may see, feel, hear or think]. Blessed [greatly empowered]
is the man/woman [in this most critical hour] who forsakes ALL [every ground of] fear [pride] to trust in the Father and Jesus - and in Them, alone!
____...."Enter through the narrow gate; for wide is
the gate and spacious and broad is the way that leads away to destruction, and many are those who are entering through it. But the gate is narrow (contracted by pressure) and the way is straitened and compressed that leads away to life, and few are those who
find it. [Deut. 30:19; Jer. 21:8]".... Matthew 7:13-14 The Amplified Translation
...."A highway will be there, a roadway, and it will be called the Highway of
Holiness. The unclean will not travel on it, but it will be for him who walks that way, and fools will not wander on it. No lion will be there, nor will any vicious beast go up on it; These will not be found there. But the redeemed will walk there, and the
ransomed of the LORD will return And come with joyful shouting to Zion, with everlasting joy upon their heads. They will find gladness and joy, and sorrow and sighing will flee away".... Isaiah 35:8-10 NASB
is able to make all Grace abound to you".... 2 Corinthians 9:8 NASB
...."My Grace is sufficient for you, for [My] power is perfected in weakness [a true leaning
of one's entire being upon God and His Word]".... 2 Corinthians
...."There is no fear in love [dread does not exist], but full-grown
(complete, perfect) love turns fear out of doors and expels every trace of terror!".... 1 John 4:18 The Amplified Translation
Prayer of Proclamation:
we thank You and praise You that You have delivered us from ALL of our fears. We thank You and praise You that, like a mighty rushing river, the "torrents" of Your perfect Love shed abroad in our heart by the Holy Spirit have eradicated [obliterated] every
last ground of fear within us. We thank You that we are NOW free to walk where we have never [up until this time] been able to walk - in the unlimited power of Your Spirit. We declare ALL of these things DONE - and we give You all praise and honour and Glory,
in Jesus' Name. Amen.
...."For God hath not given us the [a] spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind".... 2 Timothy 1:7 KJV
____ ...."Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty [emancipation from bondage, freedom] [Isa. 61:1, 2]. And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to
behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit".... 2 Corinthians
3:17-18 The Amplified Translation
