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
FELLOWSHIP WITH THE WORLD DEADENS THE SPIRIT Words of prophecy: * Fellowship with the world deadens the spirit, hardening it and desensitizing it to the deepest thoughts and intentions of My heart - and to the voice of the Holy Spirit.
...."do you not know that friendship [heart-fellowship] with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore whoever wishes [desires] to be a friend of the world [ultimately] makes himself an enemy of God".... James 4:4 NASB
The continual viewing of worldly violence [and any other form of ungodliness] "desensitizes" one's heart to how valuable "life" truly is in the sight of God. ...."the eyes of a fool are on the ends of the earth".... Proverbs 17:24b NASB
...."If then you have been raised with Christ [to a new life, thus sharing His resurrection from the dead], aim at and seek the [rich, eternal treasures] that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. [Ps. 110:1]
and set your minds and keep them set on what is above [the higher things], not on the things that are on the earth".... Colossians 3:1-2
The Amplified Translation Prayer of Proclamation: Father, we thank
You and praise You that You have blessed us with a deep revelation of the importance of keeping our eyes focussed on the "things above". And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
