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
THE "ACTIVATION" OF EITHER DEATH OR LIFE IS IN THE POWER OF OUR TONGUE
Words of prophecy:
your faith where your mouth is!
____...."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
...."faith, if it does not have
works (deeds and actions of obedience to back it up), by itself is destitute of power (inoperative, dead)".... James 2:17 The Amplified Translation
____Two scriptures that bear out the power of the
words in our lives to change our lives:
____...."Death and life are in the power of the tongue".... Proverbs 18:21a NASB
if anyone does not offend in speech [never says the wrong things], he/she is a fully developed character and a perfect man, able to control his/her whole body and to curb his/her entire nature".... James 3:2
The Amplified Translation
____We are entering into a new spiritual season now - one which will see "words" come to pass in the lives of God's people [good or bad -
righteous or unrighteous] at an accelerated rate. Therefore, we must be disciplined with our words for it is this training we are all going through right now concerning the tongue and the importance of words that is preparing us to "rule
and reign" with Jesus - both now in our remaining time in this dispensation, and on into Eternity.
...."out of the fullness [the overflow, the superabundance] of the heart
the mouth speaks".... Matthew 12:34 The Amplified Translation
____...."for we walk by faith [trust in God and a revelation of His Word], NOT by
sight [feelings - or lack thereof]".... 2 Corinthians 5:7 NASB
Prayer of Proclamation:
to make active or capable of [enable] action;
____Father, we thank You and praise You that the "activation" of either death or life is in the power of
OUR tongue. We thank You and praise You that with each passing day we are gaining a continually deeper revelation of this spiritual reality and, thus, we set ourselves to become more and more sensitive to the words that we speak [proclaim].
And we declare all of these things DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory! Amen.
