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
A PERFECT "SPIRITUAL OFFENSIVE"
Words of Prophecy:
*____The best defense against the Enemy is a perfect "offensive" - a perfect offensive that is the spontaneous fruit of obedience to My Word and the still, small voice of My Spirit
in any given moment.
"offensive" - an aggressive movement or attack [in this case, in the power and Love
of the Holy Spirit];
____...."Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power
of the enemy, and nothing will injure you".... Luke 10:19 NASB
...."So be subject to God. Resist the devil [stand
firm against him], and he will flee from you".... James 4:7 The Amplified Translation
____Certain people [flesh and blood] will become offended when one enters into a "perfect spiritual offensive" [obedience] against Satan and his forces. Therefore,
in our obedience, we must stay alert against the wiles of the Enemy through a continual focus on Jesus [the Word of God] and a faithful adherence to the still, small voice of the Holy Spirit.
...."Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal among you, which comes upon you for your testing, as though some strange thing were happening
to you; but to the degree that you share the sufferings of Christ, keep on rejoicing, so that also at the revelation of His glory you may rejoice with exultation. If you are reviled for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of
God rests on you".... 1 Peter 4:12-14 NASB
Prayer of Proclamation:
we thank You and praise You that you have raised us up a people who are continually seeking to pursue the Enemy until he [and his strongholds] are consumed. We acknowledge the fact that it
will take a perfect diligence on our part in order to stay above the attempts of the Enemy to stop us and, by Your Grace we declare it DONE, in Jesus' Name.
You are my lamp, O LORD; And the LORD illumines my darkness. For by You I can run upon a troop; By my God I can leap over a wall. As for God, His way is blameless; The word of the LORD is tested; He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him. For who is God,
besides the LORD? And who is a rock, besides our God? "God is my strong fortress; And He sets the blameless in His way. He makes my feet like hinds' feet, and sets me on my high places. He trains my hands for battle, So that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
You have also given me the shield of Your salvation, and Your help makes me great. You enlarge my steps under me, and my feet have not
slipped. I pursued my enemies and destroyed them, and I did not turn back until they were consumed.
And I have devoured them and shattered
them, so that they did not rise; And they fell under my feet. For You have girded me with strength for battle; You have subdued under me those who rose up against me. You have also made my enemies turn their backs to me, and I destroyed those who hated me"....
2 Samuel 22:29-41 NASB
