“All ye inhabitants of the world, and dwellers on the earth, see ye, when he lifteth up an ensign on the mountains; and when he bloweth a trumpet, hear ye.” Isaiah 18:3 “But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap: And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness.” Malachi 3:2-3 Our Lord Jesus wants a set apart, sanctified and holy people who walk in the reverential fear of the Father and bring an offering in RIGHTEOUSNESS. God is calling those sons of Levi (Levitical Priesthood) to yield to His purging and cleansing’s through sanctification. Sanctification is a progressive cleansing of our character and conduct. The outer man will begin to act like our Lord Jesus. “I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire: Matthew 3:11
The baptism of fire comes to help us mature and become certified vessels of honor when we are real serious about serving God. It is a time that we are desiring the Father to use us in a greater way. Jesus sees the potential and says I can use her, but first I must consume up the dross in order for my power and glory to come forth. “And he said unto her, What wilt thou? She saith unto him, Grant that these my two sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on the left, in thy kingdom. But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with…” Matthew 20: 21-22 He was saying to His disciples, count the cost are you able to go through what I am about to and are you able to partake of my cup? In their eagerness and healthy zeal to serve, they responded, we are able. Anytime that we feel we want to walk in a special place, close to His heart, and we say Lord I want to serve you, use me, Jesus says, “count the cost” and we eagerly say yes Master I have, and we are able. Get ready, God will take you at your word and ye shall drink indeed of His cup, and be baptized with the baptism of fire. A fire that comes to purge, cleanse and sanctify His own--A fire that comes to expose the dross of the lust of the eyes, lust of the flesh, and the pride of life. It comes to get rid of all filthiness of the flesh, wrong attitudes and motives of the heart. It is a time you learn to solely trust the Lord, His Word and promises. “And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.” 1 Peter 5:10 (NIV)
This can be a time that you feel that the hedge of protection has been taken away as it was in the case of Job. The fire can come in a time in your life that everything seems to be going well. You have loved the Lord with all your heart, you’re tithing, witnessing, serving your church and suddenly the forces of hell seem like they have been unleashed against you. It seems you have no control over your circumstances. Your home, children, family and material possessions are all shaking. You used to pray, feel God’s presence, but now you wonder if He is really there? You’ve confessed every sin you can remember and self– delivered yourself time and time again. If you didn’t know better, you’d think you are backslidden, but you know you are not. How do you know this? Because in your heart there is no desire for the world you left behind, nothing matters, only serving God with all your heart; and so you press on under the shadow of the Almighty in His secret place and when you get to the point you feel you can’t stand it anymore, He will touch you and let you know that He is there and He will never leave you nor forsake you. In Isaiah 1:1 you will notice that he (Isaiah) began his ministry during the reign of King Uzziah, but it was not till King Uzziah died (Isaiah 6) that he received the deeper purging. In Isaiah 6:6-7 it reads, “Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal (fiery coal) in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar. (The fire came from the altar or the hand of God) And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.”
Some of us are now experiencing the purging fires of the Holy Ghost, some of us are being prepared to be plunged into the fire and some of us will never yield to the fire. We will fight His hand all the way because we will not recognize His hand that comes to correct, perfect and train his loved ones. This latter group will blame everything negative on the devil, because it does not line up with their confession. Sometimes the very situation we are in can be the very thing that will expose the dross and the tin. “And I will turn my hand upon thee, and purely purge away thy dross, and take away all thy tin.” Isaiah 1:25
Brothers and sisters, lets be sensitive to the Holy Spirit, let’s not try to pray away every situation that looks negative. It could be the hand of God. God uses fire for judgment and also for testing. The works of believers will be tested by fire. “Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.” 1 Corinthians 3:12-15 There are many reasons why the fire is important. “Now when Solomon had made an end of praying, the fire came down from heaven, and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of the Lord filled the house.” 2 Chronicles 7:1 Solomon was a man of prayer, after he prayed, the fire came and then the Glory. In order to experience the glory, which is the presence of God in our lives, we need to spend time on her knees in prayer. “And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.” 1 Kings 19:12 The fire is needed so we can clearly hear the still small voice. We need to know His voice among the many voices that are coming forth in this hour. “And the priest shall put on his linen garment, and his linen breeches shall he put upon his flesh, and take up the ashes which the fire hath consumed with the burnt offering on the altar, and he shall put them beside the altar.” Leviticus 6:10
The priest could not put on his priestly garment until the fire had consumed ALL only ashes remained. In order for us to wear our priestly garment, the robe of RIGHTEOUSNESS, we will have to lay ALL that the Father requires and let the fire consume it, until only the ashes remain. “And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.” 2 Corinthians 6: 16-18, “And when all the children of Israel saw how the fire came down, and the glory of the Lord upon the house, they bowed themselves with their faces to the ground upon the pavement, and worshipped, and praised the Lord, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever.” 2 Chronicles 7:3 Yes, the fire will make us humble and we will bow down with our faces to the ground, worshipping and praising Him and saying His mercy endureth forever. To God be the Glory!
