The Fire of God
“For our God is a consuming fire”
The Fire of God is not only a Holy Fire it is a consuming Fire. It consumes the wood, hay and stubble of men’s works and offerings. It consumes anything which is not of Him within the life of His own. Though eternal, like the natural fire in this world it consumes until there is nothing left.
Many in our day minister out of the precious gifts of the Spirit yet few there be who know of the true Baptism of the Holy Spirit which fell upon the early church accompanied by the Fire of God Himself. The selfish ways of men were consumed in the fire which fell, every life touched by the fire became living sacrifices unto God. They lived for His Glory, they sought no following or faction of their own disciples, they were mortified if any attention was diverted from Christ unto themselves. The Fire of God is His answer for the Church in this day. His fire will not only consume the dross of self in our midst it will also be the very flame which welds us into One Body and One Loaf.
His Fire falls on the sacrificial hearts of those who live in the desire and life of the Lamb. There is only one fire accepted by the Father and there is only One sacrifice which pleases Him and it is in the Living Christ where we discover both!
“For of him, and through him, and to him,
are all things: to whom be glory forever. Amen”
Offerings by fire,
from lives aflame,
hearts lifted by holy hands,
To worship His Glorious Name.
