1 Pet. 2:5, “Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.” What a wonderful revelation: you are the altar, the priest and the sacrifice! The prescription is that the fire must be burning continuously, it must never go out.
It is so important to get into the fire dimension of the precious Holy Spirit because the fire dimension of the Holy Spirit is the power dimension. How we need it!
Luke 24:49, “And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.” Jesus told his disciples before he ascended that they should tarry until they were endued with power from on high. It is very important that you don’t run until you have the fire of his presence. It is very important for us to crave the baptism of fire – it burns literally inside of us and envelops us on daily basis. We’ve got to break into the enemy territory by fire by force; take what belongs to us and come out unscathed. This is the year that we must accelerate to recover all. It takes fire of his presence to do this; his fire imparts an uncommon zeal, an uncommon energy, a desire to please God. It is a holy fire, a glory fire.
Wherever the fire burns, wild beasts are kept away, they cannot operate. Fire makes you a touch-not person. It takes fire to operate in a world full of wickedness, cruelty, a world of sharks. It is only the fire of the presence of God that can guaranty that we are not messed up by wild beasts. May that fire fall heavily upon us in the mighty name of Jesus Christ and burn all the days of our lives never going down in the name of Jesus.
Facts about the Fire
1. Acts 1:6-8, “When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom of Israel? And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.”
It takes fire to witness. This year, may you desire to be abundantly fruitful. The oil of fruitfulness is upon everyone connected to this ministry, terminating every form of barrenness. It is the year of exaltation for those who know their God. God is set to do wonders in this ministry and I am so excited. That is why it is important for us to lay the foundation, it can only get better. Anyone who wants the power of the Holy Spirit and not seeking for the fire is not properly connected.
Acts 2:1-4, “And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.“
While 120 disciples were praying and having fellowship, suddenly, a mighty rushing wind came and swept the entire room and measured tongues of fire rested upon every head. The fire of his presence is real. When the fire is intense over your head, you will not have nightmares; any power on assignment to harm you will be consumed. You need not pray for too long to have victory over the enemy. God will step in and fight for you and give you victory after victories.
