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
Words of prophecy:
*____This is the hour wherein My Spirit [Who is the Spirit of Wisdom and revelation, the Spirit of Love etc.]
is going to take away [through a revelation of absolute Truth] all of the "preconceived notions" of both My Person [the Father] and My Word [Jesus] that have been "held to" - up until this time. Truly I say to you, how blessed is the man/woman that "positions"
themselves in this season [through a deep and thorough repentance] to "allow" My Spirit to empower them to both see and experience Us as we truly are!
near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded".... James 4:8 NASB
____ ...."He who has My commandments [gained a revelation of the
Father's Will] and keeps [remembers, exalts, honors, magnifies, does] them is the one who loves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will disclose Myself to him ...."If anyone loves Me, he will keep [remember, exalt,
honor, magnify, do] My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode [having living communion] with him".... John 14:21, 23 NASB
...."But the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will cause you to recall
[will remind you of, bring to your remembrance] everything I have told you".... John 14:26 The Amplified Translation
Anyone who "allows" themselves [through pride]
to come under the influence [control] of a "self-righteous" spirit [any spirit of self-exaltation] is not aware [although they most certainly should be!] that what they are doing and saying is apart from the Righteousness of God [Christ] because the one under
that "spirit" to any degree is deceived in their heart into thinking that their intentions are good [righteous] when, in reality, deep down in their heart, they are not!
____...."For I say to you that
unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven".... Matthew 5:20 NASB
...."Departing from there,
He went into their synagogue. And a man was there whose hand was withered. And they questioned Jesus, asking, 'Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?' - so that they might accuse Him. And He said to them, 'What man is there among you who has a sheep, and if
it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will he not take hold of it and lift it out? 'How much more valuable then is a man than a sheep!
So then, it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath.' Then He said to the
man, 'Stretch out your hand!' He stretched it out, and it was restored to normal, like the other. But the Pharisees went out and conspired against Him, as to how they might destroy Him. But Jesus, aware of this, withdrew from there. Many followed Him, and
He healed them all".... Matthew 12:9-15 NASB
____...."He [Jesus] began saying to His disciples first of all, 'Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. But there is nothing covered up
that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known'".... Luke 12:1a-2 NASB
...."But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, pretenders [hypocrites]! For
you shut the kingdom of heaven in men's faces; for you neither enter yourselves, nor do you allow those who are about to go in to do so".... Matthew 23:13 The Amplified Translation
Prayer of Proclamation:
____Father, we thank You and praise You that, IN Christ, You have set us free from "self-righteousness" that we might be free to represent You perfectly on ALL fronts - devoid of ANY ground that would cause to us to
both seek after and pursue self-glory - and we declare all of these things DONE, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
