[1/13, 21:04] Jonathan Azode: *The Fire of the Holy Ghost*
Acts 2:3 KJV
And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
God is an unquenchable fire. And thus, He has a reserve of the fire in the Word of God. The coming of Jesus, was to prepare man for the coming of this fire. The fire of the Holy Ghost, surpasses any other power or fire. This fire has certain ways of function and character. A person with this fire is a moving missile, you don’t have this fire and remain unfocused or inconsequential. I want to take us on a little journey as regards to this fire.
*Baptism of fire*
Under this I will be talking about 3 basic things. Firstly is
*How to get baptized in fire*
One who wants to get baptized in the Holy Ghost fire like the apostles, he must be ready. He is not to be confused about what he wants from God. The person must be prepared also. He need to know that he is lacking fire and that he needs it, he must know the advantage of fire. He must want to take advantage of the fire. A person that need fire from God must be equal to the task, he must state the obvious by saying to himself why do I need fire, fire wouldn’t come to you when you do not have a reason for the fire. If you get the fire what do you use it for. Is it for miracles, signs and wonders or is it for pride. To obtain fire also you must know how to interact with the Holy Ghost. You must learn how to relate with the Spirit. People who relate with the Spirit. Will easily get baptized by the Holy Ghost. Now there are Three ways I know one can receive the Holy Spirit baptism. Firstly it is by impartation which is of two folds. The laying on of hands and also from anointmosphere. That is where anointing is dwelling. Secondly is by utterance. When you speak and the Holy Ghost fire enters. Thirdly the one of the apostles was directly from God that one needed no man to bring about it. These are how you receive fire. Next thing I want to write about is the impact of fire.
*The impact of fire*
Fire like everything in the kingdom of God has it’s work. And a such a person with fire has some characters. Fire is needed to break grounds. Fire is needed to overcome temptation. Fire is needed to frustrate the devil and his agents. Fire is needed to break limitations. Fire is needed to grow spiritually, and to meet your spiritual needs. fire is used to change things. A fireless person is truly a powerless person. Every fireful person leaves an impact for his generation to come. Fire is used to burn chaff out of the life of a person and also fire refines. The products of fire cannot be over emphasized. With fire the journey becomes rather easy. The devil will only listen to fire. Where fire is burning no one goes near there. Fire is used to cultivate. Where things are dry and you want new things to grow you need fire. Fire is used to confuse the enemy. Where there is fire the enemy is afraid to go there and he is looking for a means of escape. Fire can protect. Fire is what God uses to protect His children from any harm. Fire is unpenetratable it can not be hindered. Fire is a master piece it attracts. Where there is fire, people are attracted to you. The see reasons to be around you. Finally I will talk about.
*The indwelling of Fire*
Fire can be quenched like any other spiritual entity. So it is good to know how to maintain your fire. To keep the fire burning you must first of all overcome fear. The fire of God cannot be quenched in you except you are fearful. The more afraid you are the more of the fire that is quenched within you. Is it possible for you not to get afraid, yes sir. You only need to separate yourself unto God. How do you separate yourself unto God by being diligent in the spirit among other things. Also to keep the fire burning you need a life of understanding with God. In fact you need Jesus living in the inside of you. He is the only one that can make the Journey and future bright
Jonathan Azode: *The fire of the Holy Ghost 2*
The fire of the Holy Ghost is a fire that burns continually. It is impossible to quench only if you allow it to. There is a way this fire burns that it doesn’t fear any other fire. Today I will be talking on 3 things under what I title unquenchable fire.
The fire of the Holy Ghost has fire proof, it is tangible palpable and feelable. The fire is a very dangerous kind. like physical fire it is of two sided can be of good use and also a destroyer. The fire of the Holy Ghost kindled in the mist of the children of Israel and destroyed so many of them when they sined. The fire can do and undo. The fire is made of light it can’t be hurt by darkness. Instead it shatters darkness. Or have you heard in the news where they say darkness quenched fire. This fire cannot harm the person who has it. It speeds up the process of creation in a man. The fire of the Holy Ghost is unstoppable. It is like a bulldozing agent. It can saturate and it can suffocate. It is proof. The fire carries proof it can be anointing for the next level. The fire is not a fire that leaves you where it meets you. Next thing
There is way it burns. It can be like the fire of a gas or of petrol or of wood. This fire is full of substance. It is feared by the enemy. The fire burns in degrees that cannot be withstood or understood. It grows. The more you do the things that gets you closer to God the more this fire burns. Like every fire it needs a source of fuel. The more oil you have the more this fire burns. Desperation positively is key to the burning of this fire. This fire can be shared among individuals and places. The fire can go as far as another state if it is sent. There is always an amazing side to the burning of this fire, it can change dimension, it is basically burning everything that concerns you at the same time. The burning of this fire can be trusted. This fire can keep burning for generation and even for eternity. Like hell fire this fire created it out of annoyance. Next thing
