Summary:

What is the Fire all about?

People tend to know “about” God; not only do we want to actually “know” God, but for Him to “know” us also.

How does the Fire introduce God to me?

Show Notes:

• The fire produces a stability for my life.

• Satan should be left alone in hell.

• He wants to remove the Adamic nature in us.

• God wants to know us.

References:

Matthew 7:21-23 NASB

21. “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter.

22. Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?

23. And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you ; Depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’

Hebrews 10:31 NLT

It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

John 14:26 ISV

But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, will teach you all things and remind you of everything that I have told you.

Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my thoughts

Genesis 9:11 GNT

With these words I make My covenant with you: I promise that never again will all living beings be destroyed by a flood; never again will a flood destroy the earth.

Parable of the 10 virgins


Quotes:

• As far as my walk with the Lord and faith, boy that is as solid as a rock.

• Created a fear of the Lord in our hearts

• He is looking for His son’s nature in you

• Do you want the fullness of Christ in you? Then you have got to go through the steps of the fire.

• Their heart isn’t full of His presence and isn’t full of the Holy Spirit


Take Away:

The fire of the Lord is here to take away the things that prevent a relationship with Him, He wants to know us more that we want to know Him.

Ron: 0:29

Hello Podcasters. I’m Ron you host, and today we are going to talking about God’s fire. Have you experienced God’s fire in your life? Well, today we are going to initiate by faith the fire of God in our lives.

He comes and refines out of us the impurities that need to go in our lives, so that we can stand in His presence, because our God is a consuming fire.

Laurie: 0:56 I am so thankful for all of the experiences and trials and meetings with the Lord and things that I have been through. Because they produce a stability in your life. I don’t have those ups and downs anymore. As far as my walk with the Lord and faith, boy that is as solid as a rock. There’s a foundation there.

Ed: 1:24

When you’re walking like this and God is putting you through the fire, and because they went through it they’re going to rule and reign with Him. If you haven’t gone through the fire, you haven’t had all that stuff burned out. You’re not going to be one of those who rule and reign with Him.

Deborah: 1:42

Then it is a choice.

Allan: 1:45

I wanted to read here out of Matthew 7 because Ron and I talked about this sometime ago. Really kind of created a fear of the Lord in our hearts. This is vs. 21-23, “Not everyone who says to me Lord, Lord will enter the Kingdom of Heaven but he who does the will of My Father. Many will say to me on that day Lord, Lord did we not prophecy in your name and in your name cast out demons and, in your name, perform many miracles. And then I will declare to them I never knew you. Depart from me you who practice lawlessness.” I know people raising people from the dead, healing the sick and I wonder is it the Lord doing that through them? Revelation gives a warning about that. If He doesn’t know you, you’d better go talk to Him and say put me through the fire now because I want you to know me. I don’t care how much I know you, if you don’t know me, if you don’t know me I am in trouble.

Laurie: 2:52

That haunts me. That really haunts me.

Ron: 2:56

That scripture that you are talking about right there Allan is just HUGE because I am saying this with not anything but just the love and a brokenness for people. But there are so many Christians out there that feel like they are good people and probably are good people, yeah, they’re good people, but your goodness isn’t going to cut it. It’s only Christ’s nature that is going to cut it with the Father. He is looking for His son’s nature in you. That’s why He deals with you or He wants to deal with you daily. He is trying to burn out the Adamic nature and He is trying to impart Christ’s nature because there is a judgment day. There is a line that is drawn in the sand. There is a time that it is too late. You know, there really is. Unfortunately for those who refuse the dealings and the fire in all this that God’s lovingly trying to bring to our hearts then, there is no choice. But a terrifying expectation of judgment. And it is what the scripture says. “It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of a living God.” Well it is terrifying for who? For those who won’t submit. Won’t open up to the Lord’s dealings now and it is all love. It is His love. We may not see it that way as human beings where we are going through the fire. Well look at a little child. He doesn’t really appreciate you when your discipling him and spanking him. But you know as well as I do without that he is not going to be an asset to society, it the same thing on the spiritual side. You’re not going to be a blessing or something that God can use or wants to be in His Kingdom if you won’t receive the discipline and the fire now. It’s just that simple, really.

Deborah: 4:58

Do you want to be a son of God? Do you want to walk in His presence? Do you want to have the fullness of Christ in you? Then you have got to go through the steps of the fire. That is a part of what you have to do.

Allan: 5:14

Someone should talk about the ten virgins.

Laurie: 5:18

I was just thinking the same thing. I don’t like that scripture; scares me. Because you have got, ten virgins, they have all been purified, they have gone through the fire and their heart isn’t full of His presence and isn’t full of the Holy Spirit. And the door shuts and they’re out. And I am going, oh my God.

Dale: 5:44

Christ came baptizing with the Holy Spirit and fire. And it is now in this time that we are starting to understand the fire. We’re seeing that yes, we have walked in a measure of the fire but there is so much more too it and it has been reserved for this day based upon how the fire has worked in our lives.

Allan: 6:12

“Search me, oh God and know my heart.”

Ron: 6:15

We talk about the unseen restrictions, the unseen chains. That is the point, their unseen. You’re not aware of them but the Holy Spirit is aware of them and sometimes you will go through things and you have been trying to walk with the Lord with all of your heart, your really, really pursuing Him. It’s because you are reaching in that the fire gets hotter because He is burning off those things that you are not even aware of that is restricting you. Even good things, even things that, that you would call God in your life or maybe were God in your life. Whole new levels of walking with Him, He has got to set you free from those things so you can go up higher into a deeper level with Him, into a deeper relationship. How are you going to do that? There is no way you are going to do that because you cherish those things. Those are your Isaac’s. Boy you talk about a hard thing. Putting your Isaac’s (to the fire). We call them Isaac’s, spiritual Isaac’s, spiritual meetings with the Lord. Things that God has worked in you that you cherish. Right. Here is Job, I want to bless Job. He is perfect in all of his ways. What does He do? He puts the fire to his life and burns up I mean from outside onlooker they’re looking at Job and they’re kind ‘a going, “it looks like He’s (destroying him)”. Yeah, and it is just not what He is doing. God is loving him, He is going, “I’m going to bring you closer to me,” and at the end, Job goes “I knew of you but now I see you face to face”.

Allan: 8:03

You know there is an old Johnny Cash song going through my head right now. You know what it is, it’s the Ring of Fire, “and it burns, burns, burns that ring of fire. I went down, down, down and the flames went higher”.

Dale: 8:26

Ron am I understanding you correct that this principle of the fire and the Holy Spirit is not new to the scriptures? You know it sounds like He started that right in Genesis somewhere.

Allan: 8:43

When He promised Noah that He would never destroy the world by water again, He decides to use fire instead.

Ron:8:52

Allan when you said that thing about Him destroying the earth by fire, it talks about how God has reserved fire, that that is supposed to be only for the devil and his angles but those who refuse to walk with the Lord, God we cry out for them right now. We really do. We cry out; we cry out for the ones that are unsaved, the ones that are running, the ones that don’t even care, the ones that are totally indifferent, the ones that are rebellious, we cry out for them right now Lord. You know we reach out by faith in our hearts with His love and just believe that we create an open door for all these. Satan should be so lonely in hell. He should get not one person not one person on this earth should. He doesn’t deserve to have one person on this earth.

Deborah: 9:46

Satan should be left alone.

Jim: 9:48

Yes, not even the lame, the halt, nor the blind will be left behind.

Allan: 9:53

You know it was the first Adam who brought sin into this world and the second Adam or Jesus Christ who brought life back and so with that Ron I am standing with you because I believe that as soon as Satan is bound then people are going to see the truth for what it is. But people are accustomed to hearing Satan’s lies that they don’t know the truth. They don’t know the truth about salvation or what we are even talking about you know. I loose the hearts of people to open up to the Father.

Ron::

Well Family, today we have experienced His Word being that fire which refines our spirits and that hammer that shatters the rocky elements in our lives, so that we can become those vessels of honor and the pure offerings of worship that is pleasing in ahis sight.
