FIRE BY NIGHT

"Reflections Upon Reflections" [of The Father's
...."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
SET YOUR FOCUS ON THE "THINGS ABOVE"
Words of prophecy:
*____Obedience to the command to keep one's eyes "fixed" [focused] on
My Word [and ALL that He is] opens the door to the Kingdom [realm] and continually empowers one to "rise above" the schemes of the Enemy.
*____One becomes what they consistently "behold".
"behold" - regard; gaze upon; discern;
to look at steadily or intently;
____...."Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty [emancipation from bondage, freedom] [Isa. 61:1, 2]. And all of us, as with
unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from
the Lord [Who is] the Spirit".... 2 Corinthians 3:17-18 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
...."so that no advantage would be taken of us by Satan, for we are not ignorant of his schemes".... 2 Corinthians
...."For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be
full of light [revelation]".... Matthew 6:21-22 KJV
...."No weapon that is formed against you will prosper".... Isaiah 54:17 NASB
the Enemy is attempting to get one to focus their eyes on something it is of the utmost importance for them to "look away" from what he is attempting to get them to fix their eyes on and fix their eyes on the Word of God, instead. Images are an extremely powerful
influence on one's life - and, therefore, it is very important to exercise a holy caution concerning that which we look at - without exception!
____...."we consider and look not to the things that
are seen [the lower reality - that which is real to the five physical senses] but to the things that are unseen [through faith in the higher Reality of God's Word];
for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting) [subject to change], but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting [Eternal]"....
2 Corinthians 4:18 The Amplified Translation
Prayer of Proclamation:
____Father, we thank You and praise You that You have blessed us with a deep
revelation of the importance of keeping our eyes "fixed" [focused] upon both You and Your Word - and, thus, we are continually empowered in our obedience to rise above the schemes of the Enemy to influence
us with the "things below". And we declare all of these things DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God"....
Colossians 3:1-3 NASB
