Run to the Fire!

When David faced the giant…he didn’t run away from him…He ran toward Him…with a sling and a stone…
As the Philistine moved closer to attack him, David ran quickly toward the battle line to meet him. I Samuel 17:48-50New International Version (NIV)
When Shad rack, Meshach and Abednego, three Hebrews, were told to bow to an idol or be burned alive in a fiery furnace…they would not bow. They didn’t run from the fiery furnace they went into it knowing that even if their God did not save them, even if they died they would not bow and worship the idol…
Not three men but four men were in that furnace, The Lord was in there with them…and when they came out, they didn’t even smell of smoke…even though the fire was made seven times hotter. (Read Daniel 3:16-27 New Living Translation (NLT))
Moses didn’t back up from Pharaoh, Daniel didn’t run from the lion’s den, Joseph didn’t run from Egypt he stayed true to God, Esther didn’t run, Ruth didn’t run, Noah didn’t run, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob remained true to God, John the Baptist didn’t run from Herod the king, there are many more throughout the Bible who didn’t run from the fire…and Jesus the son of God, didn’t run from the cross, He embraced it…
We are not to run from the fire…but…run to the fire…God’s fire is more fierce than any fire people of the Earth can even imagine…you think of the powerful weapons that are on the earth today…it is nothing compared to God’s fire…
The Holy Ghost and fire is powerful…but today we’ve diminished him to ash and a few tiny sparks…why because the enemy, Satan has told lies. “Surely it’s not for today. That was done long ago. Look how silly those fanatics look…Holy Rollers…sensationalism, speaking in tongues was for the disciples of old it is not for today. You are gods.” He is still hissing in the ears of men and women today and they are listening…But Jesus said, “Go, I am sending you another comforter.”
Why are there wars, why are there murders and rape and addictions and immorality and perversion and ungodliness everywhere…because people have forgotten Who God Is!!!
*God does not change…Jesus told the disciples to go and wait in Jerusalem until they be endued with power from on high…I am sending you another comforter to live inside you and teach you and guide you. Wait for him to come. And he told them to go and teach these things to others…If you see Jesus, you see the Father for what the Father tells me to do that is what I do.
If you see the Father and Jesus you see the Holy Spirit for the three are one yet they are individual persons. You may not believe me. That’s OK. Search the scriptures and you will find the truth. But don’t search them to prove someone wrong. Search them to prove to yourself that God does not lie and he does not change.
Below are scriptures that go along with what I’ve said. If God can fill unlearned men and women of old and he can go to Gentiles of the Italian band and fill them with the Holy Spirit then who are we to say that it is one time and only a one time experience. O please understand I’m not trying to convince you. All I’m trying to do is serve God in the way he has instructed me too. And He has instructed me to write this today. If you truly desire to know Him…then search the scriptures for they testify of Jesus, God’s son.
The only way back to God is through the cross of Jesus and His blood and resurrection…God showed me something this morning as I was worshiping Him…I fell to my knees weeping…and I heard the Holy Spirit say, “People don’t bow down anymore.”
I thought about that…in churches people all stand…they want a new way of worshiping they don’t want to “offend” anyone…I’m not saying there is anything wrong with how we worship God as long as it’s from the heart and that it’s true worship…for of such the father seeks…
But where is humility? Where is adoration? Where is total surrender to the Almighty, All knowing, All Majestic God…where is down-on-your knees worship of the Only Begotten Son of God…lying prostrate, knowing WHO GOD IS…He IS…The Essence of ALL! He is Spirit…yet we dare to shake our fist at him and tell him, that He does not exist…Why? Because people, don’t, know who He is!
Philippians 2:8-11New King James Version (NKJV)
And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Job 26:5-14 The Greatness of God
“The departed spirits tremble Under the waters and their inhabitants. “Naked is Sheol before Him, And Abaddon has no covering. “He stretches out the north over empty space And hangs the earth on nothing. “He wraps up the waters in His clouds, And the cloud does not burst under them. “He obscures the face of the full moon And spreads His cloud over it. “He has inscribed a circle on the surface of the waters At the boundary of light and darkness. “The pillars of heaven tremble And are amazed at His rebuke. “He quieted the sea with His power, And by His understanding He shattered Rahab. “By His breath the heavens are cleared; His hand has pierced the fleeing serpent. “Behold, these are the fringes of His ways; And how faint a word we hear of Him! But His mighty thunder, who can understand?”
Bible References:
*God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill? Numbers 23:19 New International Version (NIV)
*You are witnesses of these things. I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.” When he had led them out to the vicinity of Bethany, he lifted up his hands and blessed them. Luke 24:48-50 New International Version (NIV)
*Jesus replied, “Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and yet you still don’t know who I am? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father! So why are you asking me to show him to you? Don’t you believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words I speak are not my own, but my Father who lives in me does his work through me. Just believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me. Or at least believe because of the work you have seen me do. John 14:9-11 New Living Translation (NLT)
But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, who also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.”
The Upper Room Prayer Meeting
Then they returned to Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is near Jerusalem, a Sabbath day’s journey. And when they had entered, they went up into the upper room where they were staying: Peter, James, John, and Andrew; Philip and Thomas; Bartholomew and Matthew; James the son of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot; and Judas the son of James. These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers. Acts 1: 8-14 New King James Version (NKJV)
Coming of the Holy Spirit
When the Day of Pentecost had 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 the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. Acts 2 New King James Version (NKJV)
The Gentiles Receive the Holy Spirit
Even as Peter was saying these things, the Holy Spirit fell upon all who were listening to the message. The Jewish believers who came with Peter were amazed that the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out on the Gentiles, too. For they heard them speaking in other tongues and praising God.
Then Peter asked,“Can anyone object to their being baptized, now that they have received the Holy Spirit just as we did?” So he gave orders for them to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Afterward Cornelius asked him to stay with them for several days. Acts 10 44-48 New Living Translation (NLT)
I love the Lord Jesus Christ and am passionate about writing. I hope you enjoy the blog and come to visit often. Then the Lord answered me and said: “Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry. “Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by his faith. Habakkuk 2: 2-4
