FIRE BY NIGHT

"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
ONE'S TRUE IS NEVER FIRST ESTABLISHED FROM THE "OUTSIDE" Words of prophecy: * All "true" prophecy must be received without "any" regard for "self-desire" [self-agenda] on the part of the "hearer". For any "mental ascension" on their part will surely
lead that one in the wrong direction, and open the door to great spiritual darkness in this most critical hour. In the Kingdom, all things must be discerned in and through the power of My Spirit [the Spirit of wisdom and revelation] - without exception!
...."Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are varieties of ministries, and the same Lord. There are varieties of effects, but the same God who works all things in all persons. But to each one
is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. For to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, and to another the word of knowledge according to the same Spirit; to another faith by the same Spirit, and to another gifts of healing
by the one Spirit, and to another the effecting of miracles, and to another prophecy, and to another the distinguishing of spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, and to another the interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit works all these
things, distributing to each one individually just as He wills".... 1 Corinthians 12:4-11 NASB
The calling on one's life is no small thing. If someone is "prophesying" over a person then, if it is a true
prophesy, the person being prophesied to will already have a seed of revelation in their heart planted there by the Holy Spirit concerning their destiny, in Christ. One's true calling is never first established from the "outside" through "flesh and blood"
but by an "inward revealing" through the Holy Spirit in one's time with the Lord.
Thus, the man or woman of God prophesying in accuracy is, in essence, a "vessel of confirmation" to that one's heart. ...."And
His gifts were [varied; He Himself appointed and gave men to us] some to be apostles [special messengers], some prophets [inspired preachers and expounders], some evangelists preachers of the Gospel, traveling missionaries], some pastors [shepherds of His
flock] and teachers. His intention was the perfecting and the full equipping of the saints [His consecrated people], [that they should do] the work of ministering toward building up Christ's body [the church], [That it might develop] until we all attain oneness
in the faith and in the comprehension of the [full and accurate] knowledge of the Son of God, that [we might arrive] at really mature manhood [the completeness of personality which is nothing less than the standard height of Christ's own perfection], the measure
of the stature of the fullness of the Christ and the completeness found in Him.
So then, we may no longer be children, tossed [like ships] to and fro between chance gusts of teaching and wavering with every
changing wind of doctrine, [the prey of] the cunning and cleverness of unscrupulous men, [gamblers engaged] in every shifting form of trickery in inventing errors to mislead".... Ephesians 4:11-14
The Amplified Translation Prayer of Proclamation: Father, we thank You and praise You that in this most glorious and critical hour the various gifts of the Spirit are now beginning to manifest in the way that You planned from the very beginning. And
we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
