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
WE MUST BE FOUND WALKING BY "REVELATION" IN ALL THINGS
Words of prophecy:
*____If one's heart is "wholly given" to Me [to My highest purposes] - and, thus, is found "seeking first the Kingdom" [and
to be righteously motivated in all things] - they will be found walking by "revelation" in ALL things.
seek [aim at and strive after] first of all His kingdom and His righteousness [His way of doing and being right]".... Matthew 6:33 The Amplified Translation
and preaching [as well as everything else in the Kingdom] MUST be carried out in the power and unction of the Holy Spirit [Who is the Spirit of wisdom and revelation], alone. For even if someone had a "seeming degree of truth" in their message, without the Holy Spirit it still remains an impartation of death and darkness - without exception! Not only does this [impartation of death
and darkness] keep the captives from being set free it also potentially perpetuates a mind-set [stronghold] in them of not truly desiring perfect liberty with ALL of their
heart - and this, then, keeps them from truly "uniting" their faith [trust] with a "revelation" of God's Word/Will.
when I came to you, brethren, I did not come with superiority of speech or of wisdom, proclaiming to you the testimony of God. For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. I was with you in weakness and in fear and in
much trembling, and my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God".... 1 Corinthians 2:1-5 NASB
...."So we see that they were not able to enter [into His rest], because of their unwillingness to adhere to and trust in and rely on God [unbelief
had shut them out]".... [Num. 14:1-35]".... Hebrews 3:19 The Amplified Translation
Prayer of Proclamation:
____Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who refuse to take anything less than a "revelation" of Your Word/Will as our final authority. We thank You and praise You that, as we do so, we have the deep and divine assurance
continually rising up in our hearts that we are walking in one accord with Your highest Will and purpose in any given moment - and we declare all of these things done, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
