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
AN ABIDING "TRUST" IS THE FINAL FRONTIER
Words of Prophecy:
*____An abiding "perfect peace" in one's life and a continual trust [faith] in Me [My Word] are "inextricably" linked.
...."The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect
peace, because he trusts in You".... Isaiah 26:3 NASB
...."How blessed [divinely empowered] is the man/woman who trusts in You!".... Psalms 84:12 NASB
____Trust is the "final frontier" where one's sanctification is concerned [as trust is a catalyst to one abiding in an "absolute" faith - the very faith that "moves mountains"]. The Enemy has spent many centuries portraying [both blatantly and subtly]the Father as "unfaithful" and untrustworthy and, thus, spirits of mistrust, doubt, fear, unbelief etc. have worked to establish strongholds - strongholds that have kept vast multitudes of God's children from entering into the Promised Land [the Kingdom] - and intimacy with God.
...."Truly I say to you, unless you repent [change,
turn about] and become like little children [trusting, lowly, loving, forgiving], you can never enter the kingdom of heaven [at all]"..... Matthew 18:3 The Amplified Translation
____...."And Jesus answered saying to them, "Have faith in God [lit. "have the God-kind of faith"]. "Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain,
'Be taken up and cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be [granted] him. Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they
will be [granted] you".... Mark 11:22-24 NASB
____The good news is that this earth is about to experience the greatest outpouring of the Father's Love [through a people filled with holy fire]it has ever experienced since Calvary. This outpouring of the Holy Spirit[Who is the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, the Spirit of Love, the Spirit
of judgement and burning, the Spirit of Truth etc.] will literally obliterate the lies of the Enemy - and vast multitudes will come to know the Father and Jesus as They truly are.
____In light of these things, we must simply continue on in a diligent pursuit of the "fullness" of our precious Kingdom-position and destiny, knowing [both gaining and maintaining a revelation
of the spiritual reality]that the Father is both trustworthiness and faithfulness, Personified - and that He will SURELY finish the perfect work that He has begun in us.
____...."And it shall come to pass in the last days, God declares, that I will pour out of My Spirit upon all mankind, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy [telling forth the divine counsels] and your young
men shall see visions (divinely granted appearances), and your old men shall dream [divinely suggested] dreams.
Yes, and on My menservants
also and on My maidservants in those days I will pour out of My Spirit, and they shall prophesy [telling forth the divine counsels and predicting future events pertaining especially to God's kingdom]. And I will show wonders in the sky above and signs on the
earth beneath, blood and fire and smoking vapor;
The sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the obvious
day of the Lord comes--that great and notable and conspicuous and renowned [day]. And it shall be that whoever shall call upon the name of the Lord [invoking, adoring, and worshiping the Lord--Christ] shall be saved [experience
the fullness of salvation]. [Joel 2:28-32.]".... Acts 2:17-21 The Amplified Translation
the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass".... 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24
____ ...."Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your
ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths".... Proverbs 3:5-6 The Amplified Translation
Prayer of Proclamation:
____Father, we thank You and praise You that You have created in us hearts of trust - hearts that continually seek to lean every fibre of our being [spirit,
soul and body] upon You and Your Word. And we give You all praise and honor and glory, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
