REFLECTIONS OF THE FATHER'S HEART
By Glenn H. Jackson
[Exhortations From The Father]
* If one operates in "soul ministry" [soulish
ministry] then failure is inevitable [failure to set the captives free - and failure to enter into perfect liberty themselves]. However "appealing" [attractive] the
soul ministry might be "outwardly" it possesses NO regenerative [life-giving] force.
When one ministers in and
by My Spirit [Who is the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, the Spirit of Love etc.] then spiritual life and light is its spontaneous and certain fruit. But, should one "minister" in the power of their "own" understanding
and strength THEN that which they minister simply turns into a natural reasoning [based on sense knowledge and perception] - the spontaneous fruit of which is an ongoing "mental ascension" to My Word.
"reason" - seeks to explain or justify an action be citing facts, circumstances, together with the workings of the mind on them; a motive or cause for an action, belief, thought etc. justification;
"reasoning" - the "mental process" of drawing conclusions from known or presumed facts;
"mental ascension" - the reaching out ["up"] to
understand the Word [Will] of God in one's "own" [soulish] strength and understanding [intellect];
It must be clearly understood by each and every one of My precious children that ALL that is ministered in the power of the soul [soulishly] will
only strengthen the appetite of the one being "ministered" to for more of such "feeling" and "reasoning" - thus drawing them to the one who supplies such needs ["soul ministers"].
Let those who would minister be found ministering the words of Life and Righteousness - for the spontaneous fruit of this will SURELY empower the hearer to experience an ongoing hungering and thirsting
after Righteousness [the fullness of their true Identity in Christ].
...."It is the Spirit who gives life; the
flesh [sense-knowledge and perception] profits nothing; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life"..... John 6:63 NASB
