FIRE BY NIGHT 

By Glenn H. Jackson

 

 

"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 

 

 

 

THE GREAT DANGER OF "MENTAL ASCENSION" TO GOD'S WORD/WILL

 

Words of prophecy:

 

*____"Mental ascension" to My Word [Will] leads to an ever increasing darkness and lack of understanding in the life of the one seeking in their "own" understanding.

 

"mental ascension" - the reaching out ["up"] to understand the Word [Will] of God in one's "own" [soulish] strength and understanding [intellect];

 

____...."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. Be not wise in your own eyes; reverently fear and worship the Lord and turn [entirely] away from evil".... Proverbs 3:5-7 The Amplifed Translation

 

____Revelation supercedes "mental ascension" - and the "preconceived notions" and darkness that are its spontaneous fruit.

 

"supercede" - to replace in power, authority and effectiveness;

 

____...."[I, Paul] do not cease giving thanks for you, while making mention of you in my prayers; that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might which He brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come".... Ephesians 1:16-21 NASB

 

Prayer of Proclamation:

 

____Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who refuse to be found "mentally ascending" to Your Word/Will - a people who, rather, continually position ourselves to receive revelation from Your Spirit [Who is the Spirit of wisdom and revelation] abiding within us. And we it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.

 

        ...."But as for you, the anointing (the sacred appointment, the unction) which you received from Him abides [permanently] in you; [so] then you have no need that anyone should instruct you. But just as His anointing teaches you concerning everything and is true and is no falsehood, so you must abide in (live in, never depart from) Him [being rooted in Him, knit to Him]".... 1 John 2:27 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.
