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
"REDEEMING THE TIME"
Words of Prophecy:
*____"Redeeming the time" MUST be first and foremost in every one of My children's thinking each day. Diligence [obedience] on their part in this area will MOST CERTAINLY lead to a "series of suddenlies" in their life on every front in the glorious days just ahead.
then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is".... Ephesians 5:15-17 KJV
...."I declared the former things long ago and they went forth from My mouth, and I proclaimed them. Suddenly I acted, and they came to pass".... Isaiah 48:3 NASB
____One truly "redeems the time", day in and day out, through "abiding in" [constantly practicing] a perfect obedience.
"perfect 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.
...."Look carefully then how you walk! Live purposefully and worthily and accurately, not as the unwise and witless, but as wise [sensible, intelligent people], making the very
most of the time [buying up each opportunity], because the days are evil. Therefore do not be vague and thoughtless and foolish, but understanding and firmly grasping what the will of the Lord is".... Ephesians 5:15-17 The Amplified Translation
Prayer of Proclamation:
____Father, we thank You and praise You that You have created
in us hearts that are continually seeking to "redeem the time" - for we know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that our time in this earth to carry our the fullness of our Kingdom-destiny is as a "wisp of smoke" in the wind [here and
then suddenly gone].
____In light of these things, we set ourselves to hold to a steadfast obedience in our remaining days in this
dispensation - knowing that You are faithful to finish the marvelous work that You have begun in each of us - and we declare all of these things DONE, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
do not let this one [fact] escape your notice, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like one day. The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to
perish but for all to come to repentance".... 2 Peter 3:8-9 NASB
...."And may the God of peace Himself sanctify you through and through
[separate you from profane things, make you pure and wholly consecrated to God]; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved sound and complete [and found] blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah). Faithful is He Who is calling
you [to Himself] and utterly trustworthy, and He will also do it [fulfill His call by hallowing and keeping you]".... 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 The Amplified Translation
