"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 






Words of prophecy:


*____One of the Enemy's first and foremost schemes against My precious children is to keep them in the place wherein they still operating in [as well as discerning things through] "sense knowledge" [that which is perceived by what one feels, hears, sees or thinks from "lying thoughts" and outside circumstances] as their final authority - which is the only realm [the realm of the soul: mind, will, emotions] that Satan can [if allowed] both formulate and carry out his schemes against My people.


        In other words, he is a "flesh" Devil [bound by his "fallen nature"] - and has no "spiritual insight" into My Power [Love] and Wisdom [the High Place]. He was completely stripped of his anointing [God-given "spiritual" anointing] and cast down - and, thus, his ONLY vehicle into a true believer's life is through soulish activity [fear-filled words and actions, unbelief] on their part.


        This is precisely why when one is faithful to walk in the power of My Spirit [Who is the Spirit of Grace, the Spirit of Love, the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation and, indeed, the very Spirit of Christ, Himself], continually bringing EVERY thought captive to a revelation of My Word [casting down - through proclamation - EVERY thought and imagination that attempts to exalt itself above the spiritual reality of My Word], they will find themselves walking on the highway of Holiness [the narrow path of perfect obedience] - abiding [dwelling] in the "divine rest" that is the spontaneous fruit of an absolute faith and trust in the in Me, and in My Word/Will. In this holy place, they will truly be found riding on the "heights of the earth" [in the power of Resurrection-life and Ascension-life - which are the spontaneous fruit of the life of the Cross {the life of self-denial unto a perfect obedience}].


       ...."Is this not the fast which I choose, to loosen the bonds of wickedness, to undo the bands of the yoke, and to let the oppressed go free and break every yoke?... If because of the sabbath [rest], you turn your foot from doing your OWN pleasure on My holy day, and call the sabbath a delight, the holy day of the LORD honorable, and honor it, desisting from your OWN ways, from seeking your OWN pleasure and speaking your OWN word, THEN you will take delight in the LORD, and I will make you ride on the heights of the earth".... Isaiah 58:6, 13-14a NASB


        ...."And He raised us up [past tense] together with Him and made us sit down together [giving us joint seating with Him] in the heavenly sphere [by virtue of our being] in Christ Jesus [the Messiah, the Anointed One]".... Ephesians 2:6 The Amplified Translation


____...."Therefore 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


____Faith is the evidence of things NOT seen in the natural, but in the supernatural [spiritual realm] - through the eyes of the heart [inner man]. Doubt [fear, unbelief and mistrust] is the evidence of things "seen" in the natural realm [as evidenced through the five physical senses] - the spontaneous fruit of which is hopelessness [despair, disheartenment and, utlimately, hardness of heart].


        ...."Now faith is the assurance [the confirmation, the title deed] of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses]".... Hebrews 11:1 The Amplified Translation


        ...."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 the keys to the Kingdom - "keys" that are born of revelation knowledge and which, when exercised [used], completely shut down and devastate the schemes of the Enemy against us. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.


        ...."put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh in regard to its lusts [desires]".... Romans 13:14 NASB


        ...."For in Him [Christ] we live and move and have our being [entire existence]".... Acts 17:28a The Amplified Translation

this is so beautiful and such a testimony to the Lord's healing power and sanctification through our suffering. Much of my walk with Christ is similar to yours.
