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
IT WILL TAKE FAITH TO "RISE ABOVE" THE COUNTERFEITS OF THIS FINAL HOUR
Words of prophecy:
*____Many have fallen away from pursuing the life of the Cross for an existence based not upon faith, love, obedience and holiness
[and the "things that are not seen"] but upon the pursuit of "signs and wonders" [things that pass for Christ BUT, in reality, have nothing whatsoever to do with Him] and
the soulish relationships that cause many to fall far short of the true Covenant-relationships and one accord [true unity] that I desire. Truly I say to you, this is the hour, in which, I shall begin to uncover [expose]
ALL that is "counterfeit" in the midst of My people. Therefore, My children, make certain [through time spent in My Presence on a daily basis] that the "light" that is in you be not darkness!
...."Brethren, join in following my example, and observe those who walk according to the pattern you have in us. For many walk, of whom I often told you, and now tell you even weeping, that they
are enemies of the cross of Christ, whose end is destruction, whose god is their appetite, and whose glory is in their shame, who set their minds on earthly things".... Philippians 3:17-19 NASB
everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven [will enter.] Many will say to Me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons,
and in Your name perform many miracles?' And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you [you were not authorized by Me in the secret place of My Father's Presence]; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness'".... Matthew 7:21-23 NASB
...."Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness".... Luke 11:35 KJV
Jesus said to His disciples, 'If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it'"..... Matthew 16:24-25 NASB
...."I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the [life] which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved
me and gave Himself up for me".... Galatians 2:20 NASB
THE VISION OF THE POLLUTED RIVER
VISION: I saw
a "polluted" river [it was a "counterfeit" of the river of Life] with many people in it - some up to their ankles, some up to their knees, waist, neck and so on. Pretty soon they were all "over their head". The "current"
of the river was pulling people "sharply" downward.
The Father spoke to me and said
____The "polluted river" is representative of the flow of the "world"
[the present world-system] - and the great "currents of darkness" therein.
____The people in the vision are representative of those who have strayed from the paths of righteousness
- those who have wilfully allowed "self" to remain on the throne of their heart to varying degrees.
____The fact that, ultimately, they were all "over their head" is representative of the spiritual truth
that "a little leaven [in this case the leaven of unrighteousness]leavens the "whole loaf" [if not repented of].
____The fact that
the "current" was pulling them sharply downward is representative of the ever increasing darkness that is, even now, beginning to overtake all those whose heart and eyes are on the things below rather than the "things above".
____Truly I say to you, it will take faith [an absolute trust in Me] for all those who have strayed from the paths of righteousness to "rise about" this negative river in this most critical
____...."For behold, darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness the peoples; But the Lord will rise upon you and His glory will appear upon you".... Isaiah 60:2 NASB
...."Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes
and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world. The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever".... 1 John 2:15-17 NASB
little leaven leavens the whole lump of dough".... Galatians 5:9 NASB
...."The eye is the lamp of your body; when your eye is clear, your whole body also is full of
light; but when it is bad, your body also is full of darkness. Then watch out that the light in you is not darkness. If therefore your whole body is full of light, with no dark part in it, it will be wholly illumined, as when the lamp illumines you with its
rays".... Luke 11:34-36 NASB
____...."Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things
above, not on the things that are on earth. For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God".... Colossians 3:1-3 NASB
Prayer of Proclamation:
we thank You and praise You that as we "abide" in Your divine light [revelation] not only will we NOT fall prey to the counterfeits of the Enemy we will be used by You in a powerful way to expose them - that
many captives might be set free to enter into their glorious Kingdom-position and destiny, in Christ - and we declare all of these things DONE, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
