FIRE BY NIGHT

"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
OUR BATTLE IS "NEVER" AGAINST "FLESH
Words of Prophecy:
those who "take up arms" against flesh and blood, do not have My love abiding in their heart. It is only as they take up the "true" weapons of their warfare, and diligently "maintain" a revelation that their struggle [battle] is NEVER against "flesh and blood", but against the "principalities and powers" and the rest of the forces of wickedness, that My children shall be found to be walking [abiding] in an absolute faith - working through a perfect [absolute] love.
...."[Love] takes NO account of the evil done to it [it pays NO attention to a suffered wrong]".... 1 Corinthians 13:5 The Amplified Translation
is a most dangerous practice for one to think about [dwell upon] those who have been used by the Enemy as vessels of reproach and persecution against them. For the continual heart-attitude of all those who truly love God [those who desire to walk in Love at all cost to themselves] must be that their battle is NEVER against "flesh and blood".
be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against
the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything,
to stand firm".... Ephesians 6:10-13 NASB
Prayer of Proclamation:
we thank You and praise You that, by Your Spirit [Who is the Spirit of wisdom and revelation] You have placed deep within our hearts a burning [active] revelation of the spiritual reality that our battle [spiritual warfare] is NEVER against "flesh and blood" but, rather, against Satan and his forces. And we give You all glory
and praise and honour, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
