FIRE BY NIGHT
By Glenn H. Jackson
"Reflections Upon Reflections" [of The Father's Heart]
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
KNOWING THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THAT WHICH IS TRUE AND THAT WHICH IS FALSE
Words of prophecy:
*____All "true" doctrine is born of "revelation" whereas false doctrine is born of one's incessant desire [through pride and rebellion] to "mentally
ascend" to My Word [Will] with a view to fulfilling their "own" agendas - whatever they may be.
...."And His gifts
were [varied; He Himself appointed and gave men to us] some to be apostles [special messengers], some prophets [inspired preachers and expounders], some evangelists [preachers of the Gospel, traveling missionaries], some pastors [shepherds of His flock] and
His intention was the perfecting and the full equipping of the saints [His consecrated people], [that they should do] the work of ministering toward building up Christ's body (the church),
[That it might develop] until we all attain oneness in the faith and in the comprehension of the [full and accurate] knowledge of the Son of God, that [we might arrive] at really mature manhood [the completeness of personality which is nothing less than the
standard height of Christ's own perfection], the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ and the completeness found in Him.
So, then, we may no longer be children, tossed [like ships]
to and fro between chance gusts of teaching and wavering with every changing wind of doctrine, [the prey of] the cunning and cleverness of unscrupulous men, [gamblers engaged] in every shifting form of trickery in inventing errors to mislead. Rather, let our
lives lovingly express truth [in all things, speaking truly, dealing truly, living truly]. Enfolded in love, let us grow up in every way and in all things into Him Who is the Head, [even] Christ [the Messiah, the Anointed One".... Ephesians 4:11-15 The Amplified
If the people of God would truly give the Word of God preeminence they would know the difference between that which is true and that which is false.
____...."This Book of the Law [the Word of God] shall not depart [stop being in your heart and spoken] out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe and do according to
ALL that is written in it. For THEN you shall make your way prosperous, and THEN you shall deal wisely and have good success".... Joshua 1:8 The Amplified Translation
you will again distinguish between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him. For behold, the day is coming, burning like a furnace; and all the arrogant and every evildoer will be chaff; and the day that is coming
will set them ablaze," says the LORD of hosts, "so that it will leave them neither root nor branch".... Malachi 3:18-4:1 NASB
Prayer of Proclamation:
we thank You and praise You that we are a people who give Your Word [Will] preeminence in ALL things - at ALL times. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
