FIRE BY NIGHT
By Glenn H. Jackson
"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
"MY TRUE ARMY DOES NOT SHOOT ITS OWN WOUNDED!"
Words of prophecy:
"true" Army does not shoot its own wounded! For My true servants seek always to be found walking in Love and, thus, they continually seek My best for all those who cross their path - yes, even those who have fallen temporarily!
...."Blow a trumpet in Zion, And sound an alarm on My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, For the day of the LORD is coming; Surely it is near, a day of darkness and gloom,
a day of clouds and thick darkness. As the dawn is spread over the mountains, so there is a great and mighty people; There has never been anything like it, nor will there be again after it to the years of many generations. A fire consumes before them And behind
them a flame burns. The land is like the garden of Eden before them but a desolate wilderness behind them, and nothing at all escapes them. Their appearance is like the appearance of horses; And like war horses, so they run. With a noise as of chariots They
leap on the tops of the mountains, like the crackling of a flame of fire consuming the stubble, like a mighty people arranged for battle. Before them the people are in anguish; All faces turn pale. They run like mighty men, they climb the wall like soldiers;
And they each march in line, Nor do they deviate from their paths.
They do not crowd each other, They march everyone in his path; When they burst through the defenses, they do not break ranks.
They rush on the city, they run on the wall; They climb into the houses, they enter through the windows like a thief. Before them the earth quakes, the heavens tremble, the sun and the moon grow dark and the stars lose their brightness".... Joel 2:1-10 NASB
It is never wrong to reach out in Love in obedience to the still, small Voice of the Holy Spirit. We must always find ourselves looking beyond the schemes of the Enemy and allow the Holy
Spirit within us to discern the ground of fear, mistrust pride etc. the Enemy is working through in the individual. In that way, his schemes are aborted and the healing Love of the Father can flow through us to administer truth and healing to the heart of
the troubled one.
...."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 Translation
Prayer of Proclamation:
____Father, we thank You and praise You that Your Love is continually being shed abroad in our hearts by Your Spirit abiding within us. In light
of this, we set ourselves to walk in Love where everyone in our "sphere of existence" is concerned - and should we encounter one who has temporarily fallen may we be found extending the very same Mercy, Grace and Forgiveness that You extended [and
continue to extend] to us. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.____
