Theme for the month of August is CONSUMING FIRE FOR NEW BEGINNING
Pastor Comfort and I welcome all wonderful JHA family to the month of AUGUST 2017:
Theme for the month of August is
CONSUMING FIRE FOR NEW BEGINNING
Our Anchor scriptures are:
Hebrews 12:29 for our God is a consuming fire.
1 Kings 18:24 and call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the Lord: and the God that answereth by fire let him be God. And all the people answered and said it is well.
Obadiah 1:18 And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau for stubble, and they shall kindle in them, and devour them; and there shall not be any remaining of the house of Esau; for the Lord hath spoken it.
The Mystery of Fire:
Fire can be used for positive purposes and negative purposes.
- Fire can be used to generate light and illumination.
- Fire can be use to generates heat
- Fire is used in cooking
- Energy and electricity have its source from fire
- Blacksmithing, heavy metal and iron bending use fire in operation
- Fire is used in landscaping
- Fire purifies – Fire is used in purifying gold
As useful as fire is to humanity, its destructive tendency cannot be underestimated. Fire can kill. Fire can destroy in a twinkling of an eye. Fire devours and consumes as fast as possible. When the Bible said “Our God is a consuming Fire”, it means that our God can devour and destroy everything that want to devour or destroy His children. Throughout the scriptures God used fire to fight His enemies .
No one toils or plays with fire. Everyone run away from fire. Even little innocent children know that fire is destructive.
Apart from God telling us that He is a consuming fire; (Hebrews 12:29 for our God is a consuming fire), God said He will make the house of JACOB a fire. Obadiah 1:18 and the house of Jacob shall be a fire…. And since we are the spiritual descendants of JACOB (Israel) we should know that according to the scriptures, we are not only carriers of fire, we and our household are fire.
To back up this Bible passage the book of Psalm 104:4 says God actually makes His ministers a flame of fire. It excites me greatly to know that my household is a fire and God makes me a flame of fire as His minister.
All these scriptures confirmed that we are untouchable as God’s children because no one touches fire and not get burnt. Praise God hallelujah!
Psalm 104:4 Who makes His angels spirits, His ministers a flame of fire.
Everyone loves new things; we want New babies, New houses, New cars , New career, New businesses etc. God also promise us His children, New names, New songs, New strength, New heights, New garment, New season, etc. New beginning and New things are so important to God to the extent that God told His children not to remember the former things or the old things that He will do a new thing. Isaiah 43:18-19 Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.
In order to experience New beginning and new things by Fire we must position ourselves to do the followings:
- Remember not the former or old things
- Refuse to dwell on your past
- Refuse to dress the grave
- Consider not the things of old
- Forget the Past disappointments failures and focus on the present and the promised victories.
1 Kings 18:24 and call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the Lord:
and the God that answereth by fire, let him be God. And all the people answered and said, It is well. Until God used Prophet Elijah, to bring down fire and dealt with 450 Prophets of Baal, there was no open heavens for New beginning that terminated 3 years of dryness and famine in the Land.
After all the Prophets of Baal were slaughtered when their gods could not rescue them, the prayer of Elijah got immediate Heaven’s attention and there was a cloud that brought unstoppable showers of rain in the land.
Until the consuming fire of the Lord deals with all the prophets of Baal of your land there may be no showers of blessing for your new season.
Prayer: Oh Lord let your consuming fire fall upon every hindrance to my new beginning in Jesus name.
God promised to make all things new for you again, your current situation does not matter. I decree and I declare that God Almighty will make all tings new for you again by Fire in Jesus name.
Revelation 21:5-6 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
Prayer: My father my father please make all things that concerns me and my family new again this season. Let me experience an unstoppable New beginning. Satisfy my longing heart and meet me at my point of need in Jesus name amen.
I welcome you by Fire into the new season of your New beginning in Jesus name. This is your Month of unstoppable testimony by Fire in Jesus name.
