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
THE DAYS OF "FINAL PREPARATION"
Words of prophecy:
*____In these days, I am "wresting" the last vestiges of "self" control [fear and pride]
from the lives of all those who are truly seeking first My Kingdom. Truly I say to you, these are the days of "final preparation" - a final preparation that will see many enter [without "spot or wrinkle"] into the
"fullness" of their true Kingdom position and destiny, in Christ.
"wrest"- to twist or turn; pull, jerk, or force by a violent twist; to take away by force [in this case,
the "forces" of the Kingdom: Love, Wisdom etc.];
____...."Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another, and the LORD gave attention and heard [it,] and a book of remembrance
was written before Him for those who fear the LORD and who esteem His name. "They will be Mine," says the LORD of hosts, "on the day that I prepare [My] own possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him." So you will again distinguish
between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him".... Malachi 3:16-18 NASB
...."'For behold, the day is coming, burning
like a furnace; and all the arrogant and every evildoer will be chaff; and the day that is coming will set them ablaze, says the LORD of hosts, so that it will leave them neither root nor branch. But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness will
rise with healing in its wings; and you will go forth and skip about like calves from the stall. You will tread down the wicked, for they will be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day which I am preparing,' says the LORD of hosts".... Malachi 4:1-3
...."When the LORD brought back the captive ones of Zion, we were like those who dream. Then our mouth was filled with laughter and our tongue with joyful shouting;
Then they said among the nations, "The Lord has done great things for them.' The LORD has done great things for us; We are glad...... Those who sow in tears shall reap with joyful shouting. He who goes to and fro weeping, carrying [his] bag of seed, shall
indeed come again with a shout of joy, bringing his sheaves [with him.]".... Psalms 126:1-6 NASB
____Truth, when received [revealed to one's heart], brings forth
a "certain manifestation" of freedom [liberty] in one's life.
"manifestation" - outward or perceptible indication, reflection or expression of;
____...."If you abide in My word [hold fast to My teachings and live in accordance with them], you are truly My disciples. And you will know [gain a revelation of] the Truth, and
[that revelation of] the Truth will set you free".... John 8:31-32 The Amplified Translation
...."Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit
of the Lord is, there is liberty [emancipation from bondage, freedom]".... 2 Corinthians 3:17 The Amplified Translation
Prayer of Proclamation:
we thank You and praise You that these are truly days of "final preparation" [for all those who truly love You] - a final preparation that will empower us to enter into the fullness of our precious Kingdom-position
and destiny, in Christ. And we declare all of these things DONE, in Jesus' Name! Amen.
