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 PERFECT FRUIT OF FAITH IS PEACE AND JOY
Words of prophecy:
perfect fruit of faith is peace and joy. The fruit of sustained [a maintained] doubt [fear, unbelief and mistrust] is
persistent torment [anguish, anxiety, worry] at the hands of the Enemy.
"torment" - a state of great bodily or mental suffering;
anguish; acute distress;
...."Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with
thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. And God's peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is,
that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus"....Philippians 4:6-7 The Amplified Translation
to live in peace with everybody and pursue that consecration and holiness without which no one will [ever] see the Lord. Exercise foresight and be on the watch to look [after one another], to see that no one falls back from and fails to secure God's grace
[His unmerited favor and spiritual blessing], in order that no root of resentment [rancor, bitterness, or hatred] shoots forth and causes trouble and bitter torment, and the many become contaminated and defiled by it".... Hebrews 12:14-15 The Amplified Translation
____When one's "spirit [inner] man" is not in ascendency over their soul [mind, will, emotions] and body THEN "fear"
seems so very real to them! When one's "spirit [inner] man" is in ascendency over their soul [mind, will, emotions] THEN faith [what they
perceive by My Spirit through the eyes of their heart] becomes their reality.
____...."In righteousness you will be established; You will be far from oppression [torment], for
you will not fear; And from terror, for it will not come near you. If anyone fiercely assails you it will not be from Me. Whoever assails you will fall because of you. Behold, I Myself have created the smith who blows the fire of coals and brings out a weapon
for its work; And I have created the destroyer to ruin. No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; And every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their vindication is from Me, declares
the LORD".... Isaiah 54:14-17 NASB
____...."For God hath not given us the [a] spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind"....
2 Timothy 1:7 KJV
...."we consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and
fleeting), but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting".... 2 Corinthians 4:18 The Amplified Translation
Prayer of Proclamation:
we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people of faith - a people who walk far above the schemes of the Enemy, seated with Christ at Your right Hand in the heavenly places. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing
basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
...."And He [the Father] raised
us up 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
