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
GOD IS RAISING US UP TO BE A PEOPLE WHO DO NOT TAKE THINGS DISCERNED OUTWARDLY AS OUR "FINAL AUTHORITY"
*____In these days, the continual, faith-filled "proclamations" I have placed in the hearts of My
chosen ones shall begin to "resonate" [reverberate] powerfully throughout the spiritual realm in a "very special" way - and, thus, shall the "principalities and powers" in certain key locations
be "shaken" mightily [with a view to many captives being set free]. This will allow the unfolding of My Plan in an "accelerated" manner on many fronts, and usher forth an unprecedented outpouring
of My Spirit in the midst of all those who truly love Me. Blessed are those who have trusted in Me through the refining process that has taken place in their lives for many seasons now - for I shall begin to "exalt" [give a
platform to] them in order that they might release [fully] all that I have stored up in their hearts in their time spent with Me!
"reverberate"- to vibrate; to reecho or resound; to be reflected many times, as sound waves from the walls of a confined space;
____...."For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this
present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly [supernatural] sphere".... Ephesians 6:12 The Amplified Translation
of the fullness [the overflow, the superabundance] of the heart the mouth speaks".... Matthew 12:34 The Amplified Translation
of My words will be delayed any longer. Whatever word I speak will be performed', declares the Lord GOD".... Ezekiel 12:28 NASB
am watching over My word to perform it".... Jeremiah 1:12b NASB
____In this season, there is an intense refining process taking place in the lives of
all those who have given their heart "wholly" to the Lord. While it seems, at times, that God is nowhere to be seen or "felt" in our experience [or there is no relief from present circumstances], it
is certain that He has NEVER forsaken us [nor will He ever forsake us].
____It must be clearly understood
by every true [faithful] son and daughterof God that it is the Father's desire to raise up a final generation that will walk by "revelation" in ALL things - a place that is far above any type of "reliance"
upon that which is discerned through the five physical senses. This in no way denies that we will see and experience things through the five physical senses [outward things] it just simply means that
God is raising us up to be a people who do not take things discerned outwardly as our "final authority" - choosing instead to affix ourselves to a revelation of the Father's Heart and Will at every turn.
____So, in light of these things, it is of the utmost importance for all those who truly love God to carry on seeking the Father and His Word on a daily basis - knowing [gaining and maintaining
a revelation of the spiritual reality] that with each passing day He is doing a deep work in you, a work that, ultimately will lead you into an abiding and absolute faith and trust in Him.
____...."And have you [completely] forgotten the divine word of appeal and encouragement in which you are reasoned with and addressed as sons? 'My son, do not think lightly or scorn to submit
to the correction and discipline of the Lord, nor lose courage and give up and faint when you are reproved or corrected by Him; For the Lord corrects and disciplines everyone whom He loves, and He punishes, even scourges, every son whom He accepts and welcomes
to His heart and cherishes'. You must submit to and endure [correction] for discipline; God is dealing with you as with sons. For what son is there whom his father does not [thus] train and correct and discipline?
Now if you are exempt from correction and left without discipline in which all [of God's children] share, then you are illegitimate offspring and not true sons [at all]. [Prov. 3:11, 12.] Moreover,
we have had earthly fathers who disciplined us and we yielded [to them] and respected [them for training us]. Shall we not much more cheerfully submit to the Father of spirits and so [truly] live? For [our earthly fathers] disciplined us for only a short period
of time and chastised us as seemed proper and good to them;
but He disciplines us for our certain good, that we
may become sharers in His own holiness. For the time being no discipline brings joy, but seems grievous and painful; but afterwards it yields a peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it [a harvest of fruit which
consists in righteousness - in conformity to God's will in purpose, thought, and action, resulting in right living and right standing with God]".... Hebrews 12:5-11 The Amplified Translation
____...."let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith".... Hebrews 12:1-2 NASB
we do not become discouraged (utterly spiritless, exhausted, and wearied out through fear). Though our outer man is [progressively] decaying and wasting away, yet our inner self is being [progressively] renewed day after day. 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!], Since we consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting), but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting"....
2 Corinthians 4:16-18 The Amplified Translation
Prayer of Proclamation:
we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who abide [dwell] in the place of "revelation", and that the faith-filled words that proceed out of our mouths in this
most critical hour are doing GREAT HARM to the kingdom of darkness - on every front! And we declare ALL of these things DONE [on an ongoing basis] to Your greatest Glory, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
