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
FAITH DOES NOT GET OFFENDED NOR DOES IT EVER JUDGE UNRIGHTEOUSLY
Words of prophecy:
*____I am Love and Faith [Faithfulness, Trustworthiness] Personified.
Satan is fear [pride] and unbelief [mistrust] personified.
____...."For God hath not
given us a spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind".... 2 Timothy 1:7
...."Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of
Jesus our Lord; seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises,
so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust [the desire for things that are apart from God]".... 2 Peter 1:2-4 NASB
does not get offended ["takes" no offense] nor does it ever judge [discern] unrighteously. For faith [the God-kind of faith] is
activated [energized] by Love - and God's Love, alone.
____...."Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment [by
revelation]".... John 7:24 NASB
...."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
13:4-8 The Amplified Translation
...."And Jesus answered saying to them, "Have faith in God [lit. "have the God-kind of faith"].
"Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be taken up and cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes 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 that you have received them, and they will be [granted] you".... Mark 11:22-24 NASB
Prayer of Proclamation:
we thank You and praise You that we are a people of faith - a people who are both activated and energized by Your Love, alone. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest
Glory. Amen. ____
