Good morning, everyone. Welcome to “Try Jesus!” If this is your first time joining us, it’s great to have you with us. I would like to thank all the new members for joining “Try Jesus.” Also welcome those in Iowa, Massachusetts, Missouri, South Carolina, Michigan, and Illinois this week.

It seems like the summer is moving at a fast pace this year. Soon, for many of us, we’ll begin to see the evidence that the fall season is upon us. Why does it seem the summer breezes by and “old man winter” tiptoes at a slow pace?

Even so, we praise the God of heaven for giving all things to richly enjoy. (1 Timothy 6:17; Genesis 8:22). We certainly serve a God who is awesome in everything he does.

Let’s bless the Lord in prayer and thankfulness. “Heavenly Father, we thank you for gathering hearts into your loving presence. This is the day you have made, help us to be glad and rejoice in it.

Lord, we gather to your word, because your word gives light in darkness and it understanding to the childlike mind. Lord, open our hearts to gain understanding of your truth this morning.

Teach us to choose only your way today so each step will lead us closer to you. Help us walk by your Holy Word and not our feelings. Help us to keep our hearts purified by and undivided by your Holy Spirit.

Protect us from our own careless thoughts, words, and actions. Your mercy and love covers us that way. Help us this morning to rest in your word, that says, “Great is your love toward us.”

That’s amazing! But what’s most amazing is that the Savior of the world would desire a few minutes with us this morning. May your living message today, accomplish that which you sent it to do, in Jesus’ name, amen.”

As I mentioned earlier, these summer months seem to whiz right by. Especially when you’re traveling and having fun. How many of you love those days of inviting friends over for some good ole barbecue grill day?

Better still, how many of you love to take hold of those grilling tongs and show off your master grilling skills? There are people who love the prep time to get everything set up before you release that great smell throughout your neighborhood.

I grew up being around grills all the time. I believe I shared the story about my dad being a master griller to all the “Try Jesus” members before. My dad was not only great at grilling, he would make his own grills.

He also was enthusiastic about being the first family member to arrive at our family reunion picnic each year. To this day, I still can’t figure out why he thought he had to get out there before the sun came up to get his grill fired up and ready to go.

Me and my brothers are a testament to getting woke at 5:00 am to pack up food, drinks, grill parts, volleyball nets, and other picnic items to get to the area before anyone else. I mean, everything else in the picnic area was still sleeping.

We woke up the birds, bugs, deer, and anything else that was sleeping (Smile). If we did see a car passing through or when relatives finally did start to trickle in, they knew it was us getting things set up because they could see the fire from the grills.

My dad’s first priority was to get that fire blazing hot just the way he wanted before he would throw on those expensive cuts of meats. Whatever meats you liked, my dad had it.

But when it comes to grilling it, you can buy whatever foods you want to grill, but if the fire and coals are not prepped correctly, your food won’t have that grilling first place contest taste.

My dad wanted that fire to burn that five-star quality burn on his meats. Again, I never understood as a youth what was so important about getting up so earlier to go out to the picnic area to hear nature still snoring.

By the time the other families started showing up, we were sleep with blankets on the picnic benches. I was too tired already to play softball, volleyball, basketball, or other activities.

I did, however, enjoy watching my dad get those fires burning in all those grills. He taught us about the dangers of fire and how it can hurt you. I’ve had a few singed hairs and fingers growing up.

Some of you love being around fires. Many of you may love going to bonfires or having firepits in your backyard while roasting S’mores. It can be peaceful and comfortable sitting around discussing fun memories.

Some of you may have government laws in your states forbidding residents to have grilling or have fires blazing in their back yards. Here in Pennsylvania, many counties allow you to have them as long as you follow the state guidelines of what you can burn.

Many states and nations have lost their ability to manage their fires properly. Look at all the fires we seem to keep allowing to burn out of control and threaten citizens and their homes.

Those Canadian fires were sending their smoke down to many states in our nation. I’ve always been amazed at how many citizens know how to properly work with fires in their backyard, trim their shrubbery, trim their trees, etc.

But it seems some of our states and other nations don’t know how to properly maintain forestry management to prevent forest fires. And yet, they are still playing those old “Smoky the Bear” commercials on TV.

I’m not a forest expert, but even I know if you don’t have a controlled burn to get rid of the dead trees and dead wood on the forest floor, you will have more chance of lightening strikes hitting dead wood, or some careless camper starting a fire.

“Only you can prevent forest fires.” I remember it from my parents. But as I think about fires that have burned and destroyed for hundreds of years, there are other fires from the past that were a good, no, great thing to have happen in history.

Fires have been around forever. The God of the Bible uses fires just as my dad did, but in a more powerful and majestic way. God uses fires to pronounce judgement and he uses fire to purify and renew.

Today, I want to dive into biblical teachings about Fire. The word “fire” occurs approximately 515 verses in the KJV bible. The first-time fire is mentioned is in (Genesis 19:24). Although God did send a vision to Abram that was a smoking firepot and a flaming torch.

This fire and smoke detailed God’s holiness, his zeal for righteousness, and his judgment on all the nations. The Last mention of the word fire is found in (Revelation 21:8).

God is using fire as judgement against all who reject his love gift (Jesus). This second death will be a spiritual death, meaning eternal torment. It is a permanent irreversible separation from God.

When the Bible speaks of fire in connection with Almighty God, it describes God as being a consuming fire.
“For the Lord thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.” (Deuteronomy 4:24 KJV). God is a devouring fire.

God’s jealousy is pure and holy. His love for us is so great that he doesn’t want that love fractured when we try to have another god (idol) equal with him. He makes a strong, exclusive demand on us. We must treat only the Lord and no one else in all the universe as God.

Many people don’t understand the pure holiness of God. When Moses led the people out of Egypt to mount Sinai, the glory of God came down on the mount in a cloud.

But God’s glory is described this way by Moses,
“And the sight of the glory of the Lord was like devouring fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of the children of Israel.” (Exodus 24:17 KJV).

There was also instruction given to Moses by God that the people were to be prepared by Moses to meet the Lord before his glory came upon the mount. On the third day God’s glory covered the mount.

God told Moses to set up boundaries to the mount all the way to the base of the mount. God told Moses anyone who comes and touches the mount would be put to death.

Why? It’s not because God doesn’t love the people he delivered from Egypt, it’s because the holiness and purity of God will not allow sinful flesh in his presence. Whether it was man or beast, no one would live that touched the mount.

“And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the Lord descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.” (Exodus 19:18 KJV).

When God goes out, one of the elements accompanying his protocols is combustive “Holy Ghost Fire.” (Psalm 97:3). Please read aloud the first six verses of Psalm 97 to gain a visual perspective on the glory of God.

[The dark clouds that surround God symbolize his unapproachable holiness and the inability of people to find him on their own. If he were uncovered, no one could stand before his blazing holiness and glory.]

From the beginning of creation, we see God made all things good, including Fire. While Fire can be destructive and dangerous when misused, when used correctly, it can also be a tool for cooking, warmth, and light. 

My dad certainly knew how to use this fire at our family reunions, but I remember, however vaguely (being a youth) the times when my mother’s mother would talk to him about the power of Jesus.

Somethings my dad seemed to brush off. But the power and fire of God (his holiness) cannot be withstood. You either surrender to it or be destroyed by it. Dealing with God’s holiness is serious business.

# Even my mother (who wasn’t a grill master), would pass on her wisdom about being burned. How so? When I was in high school, I tried to date two girls at the same time.

I would invite them over at different times. They only knew each other in passing. But one day my mother wanted to have one of those serious talks with me when I came home from school.

She told me that she didn’t want to see me get hurt. She told me I was playing with fire with these two nice girls. She then showed me a candle with the wicks on both ends.

She then lit them and said if you keep trying to burn the candle on both ends, eventually you’re going to get burned. I sort of shrugged my shoulders and said, “ok mom.”

One month later, I was entertaining one of the girls on the porch. All of a sudden, I looked up the street, and saw the other girl walking down the street. I told the one girl I had to do something for my mom.

I ran upstairs and asked my mom to tell them both I couldn’t come outside because she put me to work. But my mom just gave me this look and held up the candle. She also said she was not going to lie for me..

The fire was coming and I was going to get burned. As one of the girls rang the doorbell, my mother answered and began to tell the girls that they should confront me.

I could hear her from upstairs. I said to myself, “What is she doing to me!” I then heard her call me downstairs. That was the slowest walk down a set of stairs in my life.

After I looked out the door, the mother finished talking with the girls and said “remember ladies, boys should never be dogs.” As I stepped outside, I smiled at both girls and before I could say hi, I felt this pain on the right side of my face.

Yes, the fire had come in the form of a swift slap across my face. I just stood there and took it. Both girls then walked away. I did learn a valuable lesson that day. My mother did console me.

By the way, the two girls ended up becoming best friends. My next date, months down the road would be a girl who went to a different high school. That’s because the two girls told the other girls in school I was a two timer.

Those words spread like fire throughout the school. Again, I learned this lesson the hard way, but I never got burned again. My parents had taught me there are many ways fire can hurt you. #

Abram was a parent just like my dad. He also handled fire, but in a more serious way. He would be willing to sacrifice his only son to God. God certainly did not approve of human sacrifice (Leviticus 20:1-5). He tested Abraham.

[God did not want Isaac to die, but he wanted Abraham to sacrifice Isaac in his heart so it would be clear that Abraham loved God more than he loved his promised and long-awaited son.]

God’s covenant with Abram was serious business. (Genesis 15:1,17,18). It represented an incredible promise from God and a huge responsibility for Abram. To confirm his promise, God gave Abram a sign, a smoking firepot, and a flaming torch.

The fire and smoke represent God’s holiness, his zeal for righteousness, and his judgment on all the nations. The United States doesn’t realize the dangers its leaders place on its citizens when they bulk, mock, and disregard the holiness of God and his laws.

I will speak more about the fire that is coming to this nation and the fire God wants to ignite in his church (his born-again believers) as we proceed further into the message.

Let’s look at other ways God was involved in showing his presence through fire. In the book of (Exodus 3:1-5) fire is a prominent fixture in the burning bush story.

God appeared to Moses in a bush that was burning but not getting consumed. Fire is also mentioned in (Exodus 13:21,22) when God used a pillar of fire at night to guide the Israelites through the wilderness.

Again God’s fire like everything he uses, is different than how we approach and use fire. Everything man uses without consulting God ends in failure. I know individuals who worked in plants handling heated metals by fire.

When safety Protocols and procedures were not followed correctly, disastrous results could harm personnel. There are countless stories of people being burned at work and in the home because people failed to respect and follow fire precautions.

This actually took place in the Bible involving two individuals that mishandled fire. In the book of Leviticus, a book that is filled with dedication to worship, redemption, cleansing, and service to God. Exodus is the foundation for cleansing, worship, and service in Leviticus.

The overwhelming message of Leviticus is the holiness of God.
“Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, Ye shall be holy: for I the Lord your God am holy.” (Leviticus 19:2 KJV).

Of course, the priests were chosen to carry the leadership role in Levitical ministry. Aaron and his sons were consecrated as priests. Here’s something to always consider when we take our eyes off following God’s laws.

Aaron’s two sons, Nadab and Abihu, offered unauthorized fire before the Lord, which he had not commanded them to offer. As a result, fire came out from the Lord and consumed them, and they died.

What was the “wrong kind of fire” that Nadab and Abihu offered before the Lord? The “wrong kind” of fire could be translated “foreign” fire (Psalms 44:20; 81:9), meaning “unholy” (Exodus 30:9) or even “pagan.”

Nadab and Abihu used fire from a source not approved by God (Numbers 3:4; 26:61). As leaders, they had a special responsibility to obey God. In their position, they could easily lead many people astray.

They simply failed to respect the power and holiness of God. Nadab and Abihu abused their office as priests in a flagrant act of disrespect to God, who had just reviewed with them precisely how they were to conduct worship.

There are other examples in the Bible where many were hurt or even died because they failed to realize God’s holy presence and follow his instructions. In your spare time read about Uzza (1 Corinthians 13:7-10).

David found out the hard way when he took a census of the people in Israel and Judah. (1 Chronicles 21:1-16). Why would God have a problem with counting your citizens?

God presented the opportunity of taking a census to David in order to confront David’s personal pride (2 Samuel 24:1). The Lord would deal with Israel’s disastrous national tendency to take pride in their own military strength rather than trusting in God’s protection.

Even complaining against God can cause repercussions. (Numbers 21:5-7). Peter found out what happens when we take our eyes off him (Matthew 14:28-31). When we fail to consult God, tragedies can take place. Seek ye first the Kingdom of God in all your planning.

Toying or playing around with God can be dangerous. Yes, his love covers and protects us, but his love also will discipline us (Psalm 118:18; 1 Corinthians 11:32; Hebrews 12:11).

Again, there are ways God uses fire and other resources to show his majestic glory. Fire is used to purify and consecrate the offerings and sacrifices made in the Tabernacle. God sent fire from heaven at least six times in the Bible.

A} Fire came down from heaven to consume the sacrifice that David offered on the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite (1 Chronicles 21:26). Our God is awesome and Holy. His presence is pure and undefiled.

B} The destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah: In (Genesis 19:24), God rained down fire and brimstone on Sodom and Gomorrah, destroying them completely. Sins consequences can be deadly.

C} Elijah’s sacrifice on Mount Carmel: In (1 Kings 18:38). God was shaming the prophets of Baal, whose god sent no fire, and claiming his rightful title as Lord God of Israel.

D} The sacrifice of Solomon: (2 Chronicles 7:1).

God sent fire from heaven to consume the offering and to begin the fire that was to burn continuously under the altar of burnt offering (Leviticus 6:8-13).

[This perpetual fire symbolized God’s presence. God also sent fire when inaugurating the use of the Tabernacle (Leviticus 9:22-24). This was the real dedication of the Temple because only God’s purifying power can make something holy.]

E} During the end-times tribulation, the false prophet will cause fire to come down from heaven as a means of  deceiving people into worshiping the Antichrist (Revelation 13:13).

F} Also, at the end of the millenium, God promises that he will destroy the armies of Gog and Magog with fire from heaven (Revelation 20:9). God does not play around with fire, he always uses it perfectly.

Later on in the New Testament, fire is mentioned in the coming of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:3), and with the judgment that will come at the end of the age for those who reject God (Revelation 20:14-15).

Before we close for this Sunday’s awesome message, here are a few more examples of God’s awesome power using fire to accomplish his will, purpose, and plan.

Job’s flocks: Job’s livestock were wiped out by fire that descended from heaven (Job 1:16). However, the earlier part of (Job 1:12) explains that although this was a direct attack from Satan, Satan was acting with God’s approval.

It was a tragedy that God permitted, and in the end, God received the glory. Job was blessed with even greater flocks on the other side of his tribulations (Job 42:12).

The destruction of the priests of Baal: In (2 Kings 1:10), King Ahaziah sent a captain and fifty men to arrest the prophet, Elijah. Elijah called down fire from heaven that consumed the captain and his men.

I do have a fire assignment for you today. You can consider it to be like practicing those fire drills you did when you were in elementary school. Just as fire drills in school are important, understanding God’s power and glory is important.

For all the scriptures we have looked at today, please place a capital “G” meaning, God used fire for good, or place a “J” meaning God used fire for judgement. Of course, some scriptures have already been explained. 

Please designate a “G” or “J” after reading this passage. (Revelation 20:14,15) This fire is described as the final destination for those who reject God’s ways.

(Acts 2:3,4) This verse says that on the day of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit descended on the apostles in the form of tongues of fire. Some people thought these people were drunk. Is this “G” or “J”?

(Matthew 3:11,12) John said that Jesus would baptize with the Holy Spirit and fire. This looked ahead to Pentecost. When the Holy Spirit came upon the 120 in the upper room in the form of tongues of fire.

John’s words also symbolizes the purifying and cleansing work of the Holy Spirit in bringing God’s judgment on those who refuse to turn from their sins (Zechariah 13:9). Was this “G” or “J”?

☆ Read carefully, some verses could be a little tricky. Also please note, water baptism does not save anyone. John baptized people as a sign that they had asked God to forgive their sins and had decided to live as he wanted them to live.

Baptism was an outward sign of commitment. I’ve always told the congregation; baptism is an outward sign of an inward work already done by the Holy Spirit.

A long time ago an elderly lady told me about people who get baptized but have never been saved. She smiled at me and said, “Their just getting wet sweetheart, they go down a dry sinner and come up a wet one. You might as well just give them a bar of soap and a washcloth.”

Water baptism is something that’s done after the Holy Spirit has baptized you in newness of life. Infant or sprinkling of water baptism cannot save you. Just read about the thief on the cross. It’s better to have the fire, right?

Ok, back to your assignment. (1 Corinthians 3:13-15) God will determine whether each individual has been faithful to Jesus’ instructions. Good work will be rewarded; unfaithful or inferior work will be discounted. So, is this “G” or “J”? Be careful.

(Exodus 3:2-4) God appeared to Moses in a burning bush that was not consumed. I did touch on this verse earlier. Remember, God can choose from his unlimited resources to communicate with us as he chooses. Remember the donkey? Is this “G” or “J”?

(Hebrews 12:29) This verse tells us God as a consuming fire. There is a big difference between the flame of a candle and the roaring blast of a forest fire.

Many of you may know people who have experienced devastating house fires. Visual Memories are quickly erased. Nothing earthly can stand in the consuming fire of God. Is this “G” or “J”? Be careful.

(Exodus 13:21,22) God used a pillar of Fire to guide the Israelites by night. God gave the Hebrews a pillar of cloud and a pillar of fire so they would know day and night that God was with them on their journey to the Promised Land. Is this “G” or “J”? This should be easy.

Did you know that Christians today have that same guidance? We may not be guided by fire or clouds, but we are his pilgrims being guided by his word (The Bible and his Holy Spirit). Some people try to follow God without neither.

(Malachi 3:2; 1 Peter 1:7) God is compared to a refiner’s fire purifying his people like gold and silver. Peter also speaks of testing our faith through trials as a refining process in which our faith is tested like gold in a fire. Is this “G” or “J”? Again, think it through.

Just some more information on this amazing process. I was close to people at a plant who were employed in refining metals. In refining metals, the raw metal ore is heated with fire until the metal melts.

The impurities separate from the liquid metal and rise to the surface. They are skimmed off, leaving the pure metal. Without this heating and melting, no purifying would occur. As the impurities are skimmed off the top, there is a reflection.

(Matthew 25:41) There is an eternal fire awaiting those who reject the good news, (Jesus Christ). Jesus said this fire was not made for humans but was prepared for the devil and his angels. God did not create humans to destroy them. Is this “G” or “J”?

Please remember my friends, Jesus loves you very much. He died so you could be with him forever. Please read these comforting scriptures (2 Peter 3:9; Luke 9:54-56; 1 Timothy 2:3-6; 1 John 2:2; 4:7-10; John 3:16,17; Romans 5:8).

There are more scriptures that point to God loving us and not creating us for destruction. Please do not follow or attend churches who teach Calvinistic fallacies. Their doctrinal teaching is subtle and very dangerous and hurtful.

Most people who sit in some churches don’t even realize their sitting in a church that teaches Calvinism. And most churches that teach it won’t say it from the pulpit because they would lose many members. (Calvin 
believed God alone knows who is elect (saved) and who isn’t.  And he believed through works one was saved. But, Calvin said, a moral life shows that a person is (probably) one of the elect. Calvin himself was intensely moral and energetic, and he impressed on others the need to work out their salvation – not to be saved but to show they are saved).

Also pride can be revealed by people who think God chose them but not you. Listen my friends, if you’re a Christian, you can witness to anyone, any place, anywhere.

“If you want mercy, you can have mercy. If you want salvation, you can have salvation. If you want to be saved, on the authority of God’s Word, you can be saved.” God certainly does not ordain some people to hell.

For more information on my stance on Calvinism please watch the video on the drop-down page “TJForLife” and click on Christianity vs Cults. In 2023 have you noticed there is an increase in moral depravity in our country?

Today’s message is not a message of trying to bring fear or cause many to have panic in their lives, but there is instability around the world. Have you noticed people are doing everything backwards?

Our nation today calls good evil and evil good. We’re trying to save the planet but can’t save people in communities. Instead of getting people off drugs, we legalize and give them to them so they can destroy themselves at a slower pace.

We are locking up things in our retail stores, but we unlock the jail cells so the repeaters can get out and repeat the same crimes. We tell our children they can’t drive a car until their 16, but we allow them to make choices about what body parts to remove.

Those with wealth lock up all they have and pay much armed security in their gated community. They say they are a sanctuary receiving state, but just don’t move into our upscale neighborhood. Today we face many challenges.

God sees all that this nation has turned too. Corruption and lawlessness are spreading like a raging fire. This sinful rage is engulfing all those who are unprotected from its singe of pain. Fire is painful.

There is more fire coming to this country and all over the world. I told a friend of mine that this message was being prepared about 4 days before the fires in Maui and Hawaii.

This is just another prelude into fires that are coming at a more rampant pace. The Lord has allowed this to happen so people understand that sinful widespread corruption is like giving oxygen to a smoldering flame.

Someone wrote that “Hawaii’s fire problem is due to the vast areas of unmanaged, nonnative grasslands from decades of declining agriculture.” When states suffer from unwise leadership shortcuts, the citizens bear the brunt of it.

Some experts pointed instead to years of poor forest and brush management, in addition to declining agriculture, in Hawaii as the primary cause for the devastating fires that happened.

Did you know that God has control over nature? Do you believe God would send disasters to nations? Have you ever tried to wake up a heavy sleeper? Sometimes you have to shake them a little bit to get their attention.

The more America ignores the voice of God and goes down the path of moral decay, the fires of judgment will increase. If America continues to act with hardness the way Pharoah did, the fires of judgement will only be more severe.

But where is the church in all of this fire? Where is their burning? What kind of burning is the church doing? What happened to the fire and brimstone preaching about sin and abomination lifestyles?

Has the church become lukewarm and snuggled up to untruthful doctrines and worldly programs? Some denominations have allowed corrupt Sodom and Gomorrah lifestyles in their congregations.

Where is the Acts Chapter 2 church? Where is the Pentecostal fire of the Holy Spirit? Has the fire been put out because there is no more oil to burn in the Christian’s Tabernacle (their spiritual body).

God is holy. He is not asleep while the nation is crumbling before his eyes. God is calling his church first to wash itself from the uncleanness of idols. What church are we behaving like in Revelation?

“And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass; (Revelation 2:18 KJV).

Is the church in the United States like the Laodiceans? (Revelation 3:13-19). God saves us from sin, and he will save us from death. But everything temporal, worthless, sinful, imperfect, or destructive will be devoured by the fire of his wrath (Deuteronomy 4:24).

Only what is good, true, sacred, and righteous will remain. Authentic born-again Christians need not worry of the judgement fire coming in this nation. They will be safe like the three Hebrew boys Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego (Daniel 3:18-25).

“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.” (Psalm 23:4 KJV).

@ This unknown leader of somewhere said it right. Until we as the true Church get tired of playing church, we will never break out of this dark wilderness we find ourselves groping in.

You have to get tired of it all. You’ve got to get tired of the rituals, the games, the carrying on, the group getaway retreats that leave us burned out and not fired up. And all the traditional junk. We need the fire of the Holy Ghost to bring a mighty change. @- unknown

🗣📢 Last words: Here’s the simple answer that the church first must grapple with. Putting out the fire of sin starts with the body of Christ. The church must lead the way in holiness living.

“For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?” (1 Peter 4:17 KJV).

First sin must be dealt with in the church. The church cannot be the Achan family of God. (Joshua 7:19-25). True worship and oneness with God begin as we confess our sin and accept Christ as the only one who can redeem us from sin and help us approach God.

God’s people are to worship him with their lives. God gave this nation purity laws (Leviticus chapters, 11–15). He also gave us rules for daily living concerning family, and responsibilities.

Also rules for sexual conduct, relationships, values, and personal conduct and even our vows (Leviticus chapters, 18–20; and 27). These instructions involve one’s holy walk with God.

Everyone will one day be baptized, either now by God’s Holy Spirit or later by the fire of his judgment. Are you on fire for God today? Do people see you burning? Or are you just a spark covered with ashes? Why not seek God and have your spiritual pilot reignited.

🛐 Here’s a prayer you can pray to get reignited by burning hand of God. “Heavenly Father, what a tremendous day of your word causing many to spiritually lay prostrate under your fervent heat.

This is the time when true worshipers will stand before you as vessels willing to be filled with fresh fire from the Holy Spirit. Lord, may your word be quick and powerful today, piercing even to the soul and spirit.

Lord, you know us inside and out. My thoughts, my words, my actions, my motives. Examine my heart to discover what I value most. O Lord, forgive me for my sinfulness and ignoring your words of repentance.

I’m sorry for making you an afterthought around my selfish schedule. Purify my heart so that the way I spend my time will reflect how much I value you. Set me on fire Lord. Light a fire!

Burn away the crud; burn away the hardness; burn away the immorality; burn away religion; burn away anything that hinders me from reflecting you. Cast Satan and his devils from my life.

Cause the broken and blind in this country to see your glorious work in me so they see your reflection and not me. I ask this today, in your Holy name, which is above all names, powers and authorities, the name of Jesus. Amen.”
