FIRE BY NIGHT

"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
NOT EVERYONE WHO SAYS TO ME, "LORD, LORD"
Words of prophecy:
are those who "attempt" [try] to be godly men and godly women in their "own" strength and understanding [due to the various perceptions of the "world - and a holding to the fear
and pride therein to some degree] when, in reality, it is ONLY My Love abiding within one's heart [from the place of a heart that is "wholly given" to Me] that can empower
them to truly love - and be ALL that they [male or female] were created to be, in Christ, from before the foundations of the earth.
everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. Many will say to Me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and
in Your name perform many miracles?' And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you [you were not authorized by Me in the secret place of My Father's Presence]; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness'".... Matthew 7:21-23 NASB
...."Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily. It is not conceited [arrogant
and inflated with pride]; it is not rude [unmannerly] and does not act unbecomingly. Love [God's love in us] does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the
evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong].
It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail. Love bears up under anything and everything that comes,
is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening]. Love never fails [never fades out or becomes obsolete or comes to an end]".... 1 Corinthians 13:4-8a The Amplified
____There is no "good" [righteous motivation] in one's "own" understanding.
is a way [which seems] right to a man, but its end is the way of death".... Proverbs 14:12 NASB
...."For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh"....
Romans 7:18 NASB
...."It is the Spirit Who gives life [He is the Life-giver]; the flesh conveys no benefit whatever [there is no profit in it]. The words (truths) that
I have been speaking to you are spirit and life".... John 6:63 The Amplified Translation
...."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
____Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who esteem the carrying out of Your Will - above ALL else! And we declare it DONE [on
an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
