"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
Words of Prophecy:
constitutes [establishes] believing and believing constitutes [establishes] obedience in one's life.
"obedience" - the seeking after and gaining a "revelation" of God's Will and, THEN, carrying it out to fulfillment from beginning to end [regardless of how
long that may take] in the unction and power of the Holy Spirit[Who is the Spirit of Love, the Spirit of Christ etc.], alone.
____...."We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the true knowledge of God [and who we ALREADY are, in Christ], and we are
taking EVERY thought captive [through proclamation] to the obedience of Christ [a revelation of the Father's Heart and Will]"....
2 Corinthians 10:5 NASB
____"Believing" [one being found in an "abiding" faith, love and obedience] is a "full-time" [ongoing] task that requires one's full attention.
____...."And this is His
order [His command, His injunction]: that we should believe in [put our faith and trust in and adhere to and rely on] the name of His Son Jesus Christ [the Messiah], and that we should love one another, just as He has commanded us".... 1 John 3:23 The Amplified
...."when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith [the exercising of an absolute trust
in God] on the earth?" .... Luke 18:8 NASB
Prayer of Proclamation:
"believer"- one who both gains and maintains an absolute confidence or faith in the Truth [in this case, the spiritual reality of God's Word and Character];
____Father, we thank You and praise You that we are "believers" in the truest sense of the word - a people who are found exercising an absolute faith and trust in ALL that You have SAID and DONE . And
we give You all praise and honour and glory, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
...."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
...."Therefore Jesus answered and was saying to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, unless [it is] something He sees the Father doing; for
whatever the Father does, these things the Son also does in like manner. "For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself is doing; and [the Father] will show Him greater works than these, so that you will marvel".... John 5:19-20 NASB
