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
FEAR IS THE ENEMY
Words of prophecy:
in any of its forms [wilful unbelief, wilful fear, doubt, mistrust etc. ] hinders [stops] the flow of My divine Love and revelation to one's heart [and
from one's heart].
____...."You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind".... Luke 10:27
...."There is no fear [rebellion, unbelief, mistrust, doubt] in love; but perfect love casts out fear"....
1 John 4:18a NASB
...."And to whom did He swear that they should not enter His rest, but to those who disobeyed [who had not listened to His word and who refused to
be compliant or be persuaded]? So we see that they were not able to enter [into His rest], because of their unwillingness to adhere to and trust in and rely on God [unbelief had shut them out]".... Hebrews 3:18-19 The Amplified Translation
____Wilful fear does not acknowledge the Wisdom/Word in any of its ways but, rather, sets itself to practice the very thing in accordance with their fear that, in their "own" thinking, will give them relief. When
one truly desires to walk in the freedom from fear that has ALREADY been purchased for them at the Cross THEN they will set themselves to bring EVERY thought captive to a revelation of God's Word/Will - and, in so doing, shall be found truly acknowledging
in ALL of their ways.
...."Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your
ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths".... Proverbs 3:5-6 The Amplified Translation
____ ...."For this reason also, since the
day we heard [of it,] we have not ceased to pray for you and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please [Him] in all respects, bearing
fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for the attaining of all steadfastness and patience; joyously giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance
of the saints in Light. For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son".... Colossians 1:9-13 NASB
____ ...."I sought the LORD, and He
answered me, and delivered me [past tense] from all my fears. They looked to Him and were radiant, and their faces will never be ashamed".... Psalms 34:4-5 NASB
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
Prayer of Proclamation:
____Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who view "fear" as the enemy of our souls and, thus, we are a people who are continually found acknowledging You in all of our ways - rather
than the fear-filled lies of the Enemy. And we declare all of these things DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
