FIRE BY NIGHT
By Glenn H. Jackson
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 WAS THE "INVISIBLE" THAT CREATED THE "VISIBLE"
Words of Prophecy:
*____What one "knows" [by way of revelation] is more real than what one "sees" [perceives] through their five physical senses.
____...."Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation,
the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses]".... Hebrews 11:1 The Amplified Translation
...."For our light, momentary affliction (this slight distress of the passing hour) is ever more and more abundantly preparing and producing and achieving for us an everlasting
weight of glory [beyond all measure, excessively surpassing all comparisons and all calculations, a vast and transcendent glory and blessedness never to cease!]".... 2 Corinthians 4:17 The Amplified Translation
____It was the "invisible" that created the visible THEREFORE that which is "not seen" is more real than that which is "seen" [temporal; discerned through the five physical senses] - in view of spiritual reality.
...."By faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the word of God, so that what is
seen was not made out of things which are visible".... Hebrews 11:3 NASB
____ ...."we consider and look not to the things that are seen [the lower reality - that which is real to the five physical senses] but to the things that are unseen [through faith in the higher Reality of God's Word];
for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting) [subject to change], but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting [Eternal]".... 2 Corinthians 4:18 The Amplified Translation
Prayer of Proclamation:
____Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who walk by "revelation" and not by sight - a people who abide in spiritual reality, and the true Eternal perspective
that is its spontaneous fruit. And we give You all praise and honour and glory, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
...."For we walk by faith [we regulate
our lives and conduct ourselves by our conviction or belief respecting man's relationship to God and divine things, with trust and holy fervor; thus we walk] not by sight or appearance [but by revelation]"....
2 Corinthians 5:7The Amplified Translation
