REFLECTIONS OF THE FATHER'S HEART
By Glenn H. Jackson
[Exhortations From The Father]
- If one keeps their eyes "fixed" on the "problem" [mountain, obstacle] THEN they remain bound [tied] to the problem. ...."And Jesus answered saying to them, "Have faith in God". [lit. have the faith of God]
"Truly I say to you, whoever SAYS to this mountain [obstacle], 'Be taken up and cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes [affirms on an ongoing basis] that what he says is going to
happen, it will be [granted] him.
Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe [based on the finished work of the Cross, the Word of God and the Blood Covenant]
that you have [already] received them, and they will be [granted] you".... Mark 11:23-24 NASB
THEREFORE ...."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
Meditations . . .
MEDITATIONS ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE
By Glenn H. Jackson
book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from [always be in] your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful [take heed] to do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous,
and THEN you will have success".... Joshua 1:8 NASB
THE TWO CONFESSIONS [part 11 of 11] ...."Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to [enters
into the Will of] the Father [Spiritual Reality] but through Me".... John 14:6 NASB * Jesus' confessions proved to be realities. Faith's confessions create realities. Jesus confessed that He was the Light of the World. He was it. The rejection of Him has plunged
the world into a new darkness. He said He was the bread from heaven, and it is true. The people who have fed upon His words have never suffered want. His words build faith as we act on them, let them live in us. His words were filled with Himself; as we act
on them, they fill us with Christ. His words feed faith and cause it to grow in power in us. The believer's words should be born of love and filled with love.
Our lips are taking the place
of His. Our words should never bruise or hurt, but should bless and heal. Jesus was the Way, the Reality, and the Life. We are taking His place, showing the Way, confessing the Reality, enjoying the Life. You will never enjoy what you are in Christ until His
love rules your lips. Until we know our legal rights in the Family of God, we will never become outstanding in our faith life.
We should know that the Bible is made up of two legal documents:
the Abrahamic Covenant and the New Covenant; and that Jesus' death was a legal death to meet humanity's legal needs; and that His sacrifice, His substitutionary work was accepted by the supreme court of the universe; and that man has a legal right to take
Jesus Christ as his Savior and confess Him as his Lord which gives him a legal right to Eternal Life, the nature of God. This makes him a son, and as a son he has a legal right to his Father's protection and care. He has a legal right to all that Jesus purchased
for him in His redemptive work. He has a legal right to the use of the Name of Jesus in prayer and when dealing with demoniacal forces. He has a legal right to the Holy Spirit's indwelling.
promises and statements of fact in the Word are his. He has a legal right to a perfect Redemption from Satan's dominion, from sickness and disease, from poverty and want. He has a legal right to stand in the Father's presence because Jesus has become his legal
Righteousness, and he has legally become the Righteousness of God in Christ. He has a legal right to heaven as his home. This takes prayer out of the realm of doubt and puts it into the realm of absolute certainty.
