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, nor the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go”…. Nehemiah 9:19 NASB

THE GREAT DANGER OF “PRECONCEIVED NOTIONS” AND MENTAL ASCENSION TO THE WORD/WILL OF GOD
Words of prophecy:
* As you are faithful to seek Me with ALL of your heart the necessary “revelation” for you to carry out My Will on a daily basis shall SURELY come forth.
….”You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart”…. Jeremiah 29:13 NASB
“mental ascension” – the reaching out [“up”] to understand the Word [Will]of God in one’s “own” [soulish]strength and understanding [intellect];
….”Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths”…. Proverbs 3:5-6 The Amplified Translation
….”The intellectually arrogant seek for wisdom but they never seem to discover what they claim they are looking for. For revelation knowledge flows to the one who hungers for understanding”…. Proverbs 14:6 The Passion Translation
It is of the utmost importance for every child of God to lay EVERYTHING from the past on the altar [at the foot of the Cross]and ALWAYS remember to take NO preconceived notions – or hold to ANYTHING that has its source in a “mental ascension” to the Word [Will] of God and His true Nature [the Mind of Christ]. For both of those things [preconceived notions and mental ascensions] produce a “certain” [sure] blockage in the flow of revelation to one’s heart – a “blockage” that then “allows” darkness [fear] to remain.
….”Do not call to mind the former things, or ponder things of the past. Behold, I will do something new, now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, rivers in the desert”…. Isaiah 43:18-19 NASB
….”For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind”…. 2 Timothy 1:7 KJV
….”There is no fear in love [dread does not exist], but full-grown [complete, perfect] love turns fear out of doors and expels every trace of terror! For fear brings with it the thought of punishment, and [so] he who is afraid has not reached the full maturity of love [is not yet grown into love’s complete perfection]”…. 1 John 4:18 The Amplified Translation
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a faithful people who refuse to take ANY preconceived notions [lying thoughts of the Enemy] – or make ANY effort in our “own” understanding [through a spirit of mental ascension] to grasp Your Word/Will. Because of these things, we rejoice that the Spirit of wisdom and revelation is working mightily within [and resting heavily upon] us as we go forth in obedience to His still, small Voice – and we declare all of these things DONE, in Jesus’ Name! Amen.
