O.T. Fire And N.T. Fire The Difference And Similarity
Jer 5:13 And the prophets shall become wind, and the word is not in them: thus shall it be done unto them.
Jer 5:14 Wherefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, Because ye speak this word, behold, I will make my words in thy mouth fire, and this people wood, and it shall devour them.
In this O.T. we read The fire was Jer. Prophecy of coming judgment, it would be with such conviction and accurate it would consume those who heard it, meaning the lord is a consuming fire, this is key. The lord’s word is a hammer, a fire, a rod, a correction of the false. The false prophets were only wind, or wind bags that said,' we shall not see war or famine, peace, peace, sooth Sayers.
When the N.T. true believer speaks truth, esp. Judgments and such your words are fire, they do not kill people, but the holy Spirit convicts the heart and they will have no excuse , only to repent, or remain unmoved and stiff necked, sadly and thanks to the false prophets many are saying we will not see war, or famine, only peace and prosperity.
The O.T. is also filled with many accounts of when literal fire from the lord fell, This will happen to a nation and people under Judgment, but more so in the tribulation we read the earth will be consumed by fire and the elements shall melt, see the epistles of Peter esp. Book 1.
Revelations tells us in the last half of the trib going into the last year when the lord starts to consume by fire the world and at the consummation, the last blow will be by a great fire and a global EQ.
Dear reader do you want your words to carry weight, speak truth, as you do, the spirit takes over and mighty conviction falls, your words and declaring the Gospel Truths of Jesus will be a fire and this fire will consume the hard hearted, not literal fire in fact Jesus said just the opposite.
In the N.T. Dispensation of grace. I heard good old Steve Quayle many times say ‘I call fire on these evil people, the fire of Hades consume them’, I responded with this verse and said brother be careful and repent for saying that, for it s not the spirit of Christ.
Luk 9:53 And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem.
Luk 9:54 And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did?
Luk 9:55 But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of.
Luk 9:56 For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.
The lord rebuked his disciples and said, “you know not what spirit you are, I came not to destroy but save”, note; that when someone says this they know not what spirit they are of, this means the spirit of the devil and not the holy spirit. The N.T. Christian is to heed this and never do, or say such a thing, or wish it upon any.
This was calling down, the desire to do as the fire fell in the O.T.
We see a big difference in the O.T. and N.T. fire, do you understand this?
The word is a fire and not a fire from heaven, this happens later, for now the lord wills all men to be saved. When the judgments fall and fire set upon the west, it will not be by a N.T. Christian calling fire down on the enemy, the enemy is the lords rod, the rod used will bring the fire, as the lord allows, later we hear of holy fire from the lord, but not until the last part of the trib and in some of the other events in the book of revelations.
We can not be found desiring even the death of this rod, we are to pray for our enemy’s and bless those that curse you, not try and call fire down from heaven, this is the spirit of antichrist even to say it as Qyuale has many times, again that shows what spirit a man is of and the lord Jesus will rebuke anyone that tries to do or say what his disciples said, he rebuked them, the lord said this not me, he said to say such a thing is of the wrong spirit, not the spirit of the lord, again the bible says this not me, I am just the message boy.
John the Baptist said, “not many days hence the lord will baptize you with the spirit and fire”
This fire is holiness, not destructive, instructive and sometimes in holy boldness, you must proclaim the gospel truth.
The Military Chaplin’s are forbid to pray in the name of Jesus, not good, one Chaplin left; the rest stayed what does that say?
The name of Jesus is not to be used in public prayer, in D.C, in schools and why, anything but the name of Jesus, and why? Every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess Jesus is lord, also in the name of Jesus is how we do the miracles and move in the gifts, we are instructed to pray to the father in the name of Jesus, the devils believe and tremble at the name of Jesus, the name of Jesus is being out lawed because it is power, holiness, conviction and fire in word. There is power in the name of Jesus. This is why sacared name theology forbids the name of Jesus to be used, so sad, it is at the name of Jesus all these N.T. power promises and the gospel declared, what a mighty name. JESUS.
On this 4th of July, as fire works go off remember the fire of the lord, if you try and keep it in because men have persecuted you, laughed you to scorn and do not heed the warnings of Judgment, many will have to decide, I will no longer speak these things.
Jer. said it, and was rebuked for it, he repented than we read he could not keep the word in as it was like a fire in his bones, the fire word we must follow, no matter the cost, we must speak all the word and what the lord says to say, it will cost many their lives, but we must never obey any law that forbids us to say, mention, or pray in the name of Jesus, many now say we can not say Jesus is the only way, as all paths lead to God, and in comes the global court and the one world church.
Daniel did not obey the edict of the king, he did not bow to the false image, he opened his window and prayed with boldness, may we all learn from this and all of us dare to be like Daniel.
Many will pay with their blood, but if so, go out with the name of Jesus ringing from your lips, for there is no other name on earth or heaven in which man must be saved.
Jesus is the ONLY way to the father, so let the fire words come forth, saying the name of Jesus is a fire name, a fire word, and in this the N.T. tells us we must do and obey, let the fire works start as we proclaim the words of fire and conviction famine and judgment, let it never stop.
At times we let the fire go out, Paul told Timothy, “stir the ambers into a flame” and get on fire for God, speak with and preach with renewed anointing and power as you declare the Gospel of JESUS CHRIST our lord and savior, yes there is power in the name of Jesus and power in the blood.
This is fire men cannot endure anymore, so be it, let the N.T. fire of holiness dictate your life and let the words of the lord become a fire in your bones until you can not contain them no matter what happens speak, speak and let the holy fire of truth consume so ritually, very soon it will be literal fire, but fire is fire, happy 4th think on this and be bold.
Remember those who can speak with authority in Jesus name, the real Christian must first go through fiery trials that come to try us, those who the lord bruises the most he uses the most, we must go through the holy refining fire if our words will be fire it works no other way, so are you in.
