EXHORTATIONS FROM THE FATHER
By Glenn H. Jackson
["Reflections" Of The Father's Heart]
* The fruit of a "spirit of affrontation" manifests in "arguing" - through a rejection of My Word, "defiantly" [through insult, insolence, defiance, disdain, scorn etc.].
All of the aforementioned "spirits" are rooted and grounded in "rebellion" - and the hierarchy of evil spirits thereof. For it is not just through a "simple ignorance" in the one[vessel] that these spirits are using, it
takes a "wilful" decision [at some point] against Me and against My Word for them to work.
Therefore, it is of the utmost importance for one
bound by these "spirits of rebellion" to forsake and release [by faith]EVERY ground of pride in order that I might, through the power of My Love, both expose and expel any ground of pride and unbelief that was used by the
Evil One and his forces to keep them bound and in "misalignment" with My Word.
"affront" - to insult openly; treat with insolence; to confront in defiance; an open insult or indignity;
Latin: "affrontare" - to strike against; to confront in defiance; accost;
"spurn" - to reject with disdain; refuse contemptuously; scorn; literally: to strike with the foot;
"misalignment" - improperly or badly adjusted or aligned; out of line or position;
...."The Pharisees came out and began to argue
with Him, seeking from Him a sign from heaven, to test Him. Sighing deeply in His spirit, He said, "Why does this generation seek for a sign? Truly I say to you, no sign will be given to this generation".... Mark 8:11-12 NASB
...."There is no fear in love [dread does not exist], but full-grown (complete, perfect) [revelation of ] love turns fear out of doors and EXPELS every
trace of terror!".... 1 John 4:18 The Amplified Translation
