The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?
The Holy Spirit within us is a fire that is increased by the word of God. Emboldened to zeal by lion hearted acts of righteousness and sacrifices of love. Incited and quickened to an intense fury at the sight of wickedness, like a vengeful tempest of lightning blown across a forest of dried kindling. The bite of the Spirit pierces through the heart and marrow, even to the dividing of spirit and soul as it is written.
Yet even still, a fire must have fuel, and amidst the coldness of the world, and the grievousness of sin, the Spirit may be quenched by the downpours of this present age. The floods drench the tinder, and the weakness of the flesh and mind become incessant in their fear, until you begin to choke. The blaze within you begins to starve and decrease until it has become an ember lacking heat, lacking power. You begin to need a revival, a renewal, a retreat to the hidden place where the wind and rain can no longer stifle. The place where only God knows, that the fire may be rekindled. Go there and speak the Word, fast, pray, meditate, cry out to Him, and repent piling the withered sticks, dead leaves, and dried chaff restraining you from Him. Pile higher and higher and blow onto that dying ember with the Word of God, which is TRUTH. Let the flames climb higher and higher sanctifying and consuming all the decaying tethers of this world until it begins to spread as a wildfire from brother to brother, from nation to nation until it consumes the entire world in Holy Fire. Watch as men and women arise out of it whole and without blemish.
Watch what God can do with just a dying ember. You thought you weren’t enough, He is, you thought you could never be more, you cannot imagine what He will transform you into. Our Lord is the All Consuming Fire, none can contain Him, none can stop His will, and He will finish all which He has started within you. NOW REMAIN ON FIRE
