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 

 

 

 

THE GREAT DANGER OF PRESUMPTION [AND PASSIVITY]

 

Words of prophecy:

 

*____Constant and abiding fellowship in My Presence will cause the spirit of the one in fellowship with Me to be steadily built up and charged with power; and as they diligently avoid the sin of presumption, the time will SURELY come when that power will be manifested to its absolute degree - to accomplish the very thing that I had intended all along.

 

*       All manifestations of disobedience [passivity] and presumption in My children are always "substandard" to the blueprint of My plan for a "spotless and unblemished" [Glorious] Church. For all self-desire causes one to continually fall short of My best for their life and ministry while godly desire fuels a burning desire deep within to both receive and impart My best at all times.

 

        ...."that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless".... Ephesians 5:27 NASB

 

____Presumption [getting out ahead of God because of self-desire {self-will} - one example of that being the Abraham, Sarah, Hagar and Ishmael story] has its root in pride and rebellion. Passivity, on the other hand, is rooted and grounded in fear and attempts to keep the children of God from not doing the Will of God through procrastination, timidity, dread etc,

 

"presumption" - assumption of something as true [in this case, a mental ascension to the Will of God that was influenced to a degree by self-desire];

 

Latin: "praesumere" - to undertake beforehand;

 

"passive" - inert; not active; [in this case, not exercising corresponding words or actions that align with the Will/Word of God];

 

____The origin of the word [presumption] in Latin really gets to the root of its true meaning. It simply means to undertake something "beforehand" - in this case, where the children of God are concerned, it means that one is presumptuous if they undertake an action or speak a word apart from first gaining a revelation of the Father's Will/Word. In other words, they operate [due to unrighteous motivation in their heart] apart from the Holy Spirit.

 

        ...."Trust in the LORD and do good; Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness. Delight yourself in the LORD; And He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, and He will do it".... Psalm 37:3-5 NASB

 

Prayer of Proclamation:

 

____Father, we thank You and praise You that IN Christ we are continually empowered to rise above the attempts of the Enemy to cause us to remain in a position of passivity or presumption where Your Will and highest purposes are concerned. And we give You all praise and honor and glory in Jesus' Name. Amen.

this is so beautiful and such a testimony to the Lord's healing power and sanctification through our suffering. Much of my walk with Christ is similar to yours.
