Come Holy Spirit, I need you

Come sweet Spirit, I pray

Come in your strength and your power

Come in your own gentle way

 

Come as a rest to the weary

Come as a balm to the sore

Come Lord as strength to my weakness

Fill me with joy evermore

 

Come Holy Spirit, I need you

Come sweet Spirit, I pray

Come in your strength and your power

Come in your own gentle way

 

Come like a spring in the desert

Come to the withered of soul

Lord let your sweet healing power

Touch me and make me whole

 

Come Holy Spirit, I need you

Come sweet Spirit, I pray

Come in your strength and your power

Come in your own gentle way

 

Come in your own gentle way

 

Sing it seven times, with your eyes shut, your heart raised to Heaven and your spirit connected to God’s own Spirit. Amen!

Thank You Jesus! 

 

I specially welcome you to the second day of the Juicy July programme. How has it been? 

 

Today, we move! 

We are looking at the HOLY GHOST FIRE today! 

 

The Baptism in the Holy Fire of God! 

 

I pray that the Lord interprets His Will in your spirit. Amen. By the time you are done praying with this bulletin, I pray that there would have been an overturn, a burning, a fiery visitation, a fiery consumption and a full fire baptism in the Name of Jesus Christ, our Lord!! Amen!

 

Luke 3:16-17: “John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose, He shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire. Whose fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly purge His floor, and will gather the wheat into His garner, but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable.” 

 

John the Baptist was a powerful messenger. The Bible tells us that his clothes were leather belts and clothes woven from camel’s hair, and his food was locust and honey. Jesus told us that amongst those born of women, none was greater than John the Baptist. He was the forerunner of our Lord Jesus Christ. A study of the life of John the Baptist reveals that he had a lot of wonderful qualities and one unforgettable one was that he was very precise in everything he did. 

 

He said, “I baptize but my own baptism is with water, somebody else is coming who shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire.” A lot of people know about water baptism. We thank God for it because when we are baptized in water it is the symbol that we have died with Christ and resurrected again. It is good. 

 

Also when you are baptized in the Holy Spirit, you may speak in tongues, you may prophesy and all kinds of things may happen, but very few people know what we mean by baptism of fire. In fact, many who claim to know what it means do not really know. But verse 17 makes it very clear. 

 

Chaff is the refuse of grain and the straw of the corn. In those days, in the land of Israel when people wanted to remove the chaff from the corn, they would tread upon the corn until the chaff was removed. Then they would separate the chaff from the grain and burn it with fire because if they do not burn it with fire, the wind would blow it into the grain, which they had cleaned.

 

The wheat represents the good in our lives; that which is produced by the Holy Spirit. The chaff represents the evil in us, produced by the flesh. The Lord knows how to separate the wheat from the chaff. Sometimes when He does it to us, we would feel the heat in one particular area of our lives, which we love dearly and are not ready to let go. We all have some items in the showroom of our lives that are not valuable to God. Sometimes when God begins to touch these things, we complain that the pain is too much whereas it is the refining heat of God.

 

The blunt truth is that there are many people with the baptism of the Holy Spirit but there are very few people who have received the baptism of fire. Those who have received the baptism of fire would not mind whether somebody is annoying them or not. There are characters that you will notice in them. 

Virtually anywhere in the Old Testament that God appeared, fire was always present. Fire symbolizes the presence of God, the unquenchable fire. We remember the God of Elijah, the one that answered by fire. An iron would not bend easily unless you push it into fire and it becomes hot. The reason some people have not been bent is because there is no fire in them. Therefore, God says, “Okay, I abandon you to your situation.” 

 

God will not abandon me to my situation, in Jesus’ name.”

 

The reason unclean spirits and all kinds of things are still hiding in some people’s lives is that there is no fire in them. Beloved, we need the fire of God in our midst and when it comes in, the promise of the word of God would come to pass. The strangers would fade away and run out of their hiding places, because when the fire comes in, it does not spare the ants, the elephant or the snake, it burns everything. But many people are afraid of what will happen if they dare get on fire. You don’t have to be scared. You are supposed to be rather scared, operating without the Fire of the Holy Spirit.  

 

Holy Ghost Fire produces heat and makes people hot

 

The reason some people are so slow when it comes to spiritual development and the things of God is that there is no fire, no baptism of fire. All they do is speak in tongue: “Baba bakakaka,” and immediately after that, they sleep. And the person who was speaking in tongues now begins to consume spiritual food in his or her dream, which weakens his spiritual life.

 

How can unbelievers be running after you, a Christian girl? You are praying for a Christian husband and it is only married men and unbelievers who find you beautiful. Something is wrong somewhere. Something has to be burnt in your life to remove that magnet inviting evil people to you.

 

Fire also cooks:

 

The reason some people make a big start and have poor finishing is because there is no fire. Fire symbolizes power and lack of it means powerlessness. Fire produces light and without it there would be darkness.

 

Have you received the baptism of fire? 

 

Lack of this baptism is why many Christians are suffering. 

 

A Christian who is not interested in progress has no fire. 

 

A Christian who is not excited about the things of God has no fire. 

 

A Christian who gets weighed down by long prayer, has no fire.

 

If certain things are still coming upon you to press you down on your bed, it is because there is no fire. Witches and wizards roam around the house freely when they know that the person is cold. Some people are in a hurry to escape from God’s presence. When they are in the house of God, they are always in a hurry to go. 

 

To some, prayer and fasting is becoming very difficult because there is no fire. Perhaps your Holy Ghost baptism is just speaking in tongues, you forget that there is a difference between your possessing the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit possessing you. The Holy Spirit will not possess you until you have passed through the baptism of fire, because when the chaff is still there, it means that fire has not burnt it. That way, the Holy Spirit cannot possess you fully. He can only enter and operate in a little way. But for total possession, fire has to fall.

When you receive the baptism of fire three things will happen:

 

  1. Jeremiah 20: 9 says, “Then I said I will not make mention nor speak any more in His name. But His word was in my heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay.” 

 

When you receive the baptism of fire, you cannot relax. It is not possible because the fire will not let you. You cannot see sinners and feel unconcerned. You would not be able to do without prayer and you would find it difficult to be away from your Bible. You would want to sit down and read it through. That is what we call baptism of fire.

 

  1. 1 Corinthians 9: 16 says, “For though I preach the gospel I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me, yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel.” You cannot stop preaching. When the evil people see you, they would mark you out and avoid you.

 

  1. Job 32: 19-20 says, “Behold, my belly is as wine which hath no vent; it is ready to burst like new bottles. I will speak, that I may be refreshed, I will open my lips and answer.” The power of God would be burning within you. You will wake up in the night speaking in tongues. God will be talking to you and you will see what God wants you to do. You will not live in darkness or semi-darkness.

 

What  prevents us from being baptized in the fire of God?

 

Fire Preventers, is what I call them.

 

What are they?

 

Lust: Your imagination indulges uncleanness.

 

Idolatry: If you permit anything to come between you and your God, it becomes an idol. For example, your job, money, etc.

 

Laziness: Life of ease at home and lack of zeal for the things of God and hatred for long prayer sessions. These are fire extinguishers.

 

Over-sensitivity: Bitterness rises quickly in the hearts of some people immediately somebody 

disagrees with them.

 

Judgmental spirit.

 

Worry: This is when you are anxious about the future.

 

Selfishness: This is when you ignore the interest of others and you are only interested in yourself.

 

Distraction: This is when you are unable to focus on Christ and you find it difficult to read the Bible and gain something from it.

 

Lying: All the different types of lies appear here. Black, white, read, green. All lies will never allow that Fire to reach your side.

 

Discouragement: Some people are easily discouraged. At the first sign of failure, they run away. They quit when things are hard.

 

Abusive tongue: Some people cannot control their temper.

 

Depression: This is when you allow despair to overtake you. You think of your problems always and withdraw from everybody when the Bible says, “I will not despair for I have believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.”

 

Fear: All kinds of fear are in the lives of people.

 

Procrastination: This is when you are always planning to go higher and dig deeper but always postponing the day you will start.

 

Lack of sexual control: People in this category should forget about spiritual growth.

 

The enemies of our soul have the most powerful scanning machine that you can think of. They can look and locate our weaknesses quickly. They struggle so much so that people will not receive the baptism of fire. 

 

When the baptism of fire falls on a person, the person can prophesy for five hours non-stop. Many things will be drawn out of the person’s life. He or she would not have to pray to be delivered. The fire will answer everything. All infirmities would disappear. When fire falls on fibroid or whatever it may be, it would melt away because God did not create it with you. It is chaff and fire has to burn it.

 

Sisters, if you are ready today, bow down your head and begin to ask the Lord to forgive you any sin that would prevent the fire from falling upon you, because during the prayer session the fire will fall and things will burn and you will be catapulted to a higher realm. 

 

You will go from the position of weakness to that of power. When some people came against Elijah and extended the invitation of failure to him, he said, “Instead of me to come down, let fire come down.” And that was how 102 people were roasted on the ground. 

 

The third group of 51 people that came to him adopted a different approach because they were afraid to die. When you are in Elijah’s position, who is the enemy that can sit on your brain or your business? There would be no need for you to go to the hospital when you have the great Physician.

 

LET’S TAKE OUR SECOND SONG FOR THE DAY.

It is titled LIVING WITH A FIRE by Jesus Culture

 

There’s a power that’s made perfect in my weakness

Fills me up with a strength that is fearless

I find hope within Your everlasting promise

It fans my faith into flame

 

I’m living with a fire burning inside of me

I’m living for the Savior Jesus, eternally

With all that I am, Lord, I give You my heart

Let the flame shine brighter Let Your praise sing louder

 

In a moment, You turn mourning into dancing

When I praise, I can feel the darkness trembling

All my fear is swept away by perfect love

You fan my faith into flame

 

No darkness can stand against this brighter glory

His promise is sure, Jesus decides my story
