"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
IMAGE TO IMAGE Words of prophecy: * When one truly keeps their eyes "fixed" on Jesus [My Word] their every thought, word and action will be conformed to His perfect Image.
When one focuses upon themselves
[as well as outward circumstances, situations etc.] in fear it is certain that their thoughts, words and actions will be controlled [directed] by that fear [and the spirits thereof]. ...."Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there
But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit".... 2 Corinthians
3:17-18 NASB ...."God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love [trust], and of a sound mind".... 2 Timothy 1:7 Young's Literal 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 It is important for every child of God to be found diligently focussing on who they are IN Christ - knowing [believing on a continual basis] that anything that is apart from Him within them will be displaced
from their life - from day to day.
It is the power of the Holy Spirit that changes us from "image" [revelation] to "image", in our continued faith and obedience. It is the Enemy that is continually attempting
to imprint an "image" [counterfeit "revelation"] on one's mind [and heart if they meditate on a "lying thought" long enough] and, if believed, can come to pass in their life. The Enemy is a counterfeiter, and this is precisely why we, as Christians, MUST continually
bring EVERY thought captive to a revelation of God's Word - as it is ONLY Truth and Light [divine revelation] that empower one to continually "rise above" the lies and darkness [in all of its forms] of the world. ...."We are destroying speculations and every
lofty thing raised up against the true knowledge of God [and who we ALREADY are, in Christ], and we are taking every thought captive [through proclamation] to the obedience of Christ [a revelation of the Father's Will]".... 2 Corinthians 10:5 NASB
...."There is no fear in love [dread does not exist], but [a] full-grown (complete, perfect) [revelation of ] love turns fear out of doors and EXPELS every trace of terror!".... 1 John 4:18 The Amplified Translation Prayer
of Proclamation: Father, we thank You and praise You that by Your great and awesome Power You are changing us - from image to image [revelation to revelation] - into the fullness of all that we are in Christ And we declare it DONE on an ongoing basis] in Jesus'
Name - to Your greatest Glory! Amen. ...."Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord; seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who
called us by His own glory and excellence.
For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption
that is in the world by lust [the desire for things that are apart from God]".... 2 Peter 1:2-4 NASB
