Keep the home fires burning 🔥

Today we were encouraged to guard against apathy and allowing our love for Jesus to grow cold. As believers, we can be vulnerable to this at the moment because of not being able to meet together as easily (or at all for some people) because of the COVID restrictions. We can become discouraged by the lawlessness and wickedness we see around us, by false prophecies and words.

Let us watch out for each other and not become isolated and allow our fire to diminish but let us keep the bonds of love, encouraging each other with Palms, hymns, spiritual songs, teachings, words etc, and above all keep the fire burning within each one of us for Christ Jesus. Lord, I ask that you please breathe on the embers today and fan the flames into fire again.

“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.”
Hebrews 10:23-25

“Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Romans 12:10-12

Believers are trying to come together in different ways at the present time whether it is over zoom, WhatsApp, FaceTime, teams, this platform or other ways to stay connected with each other. It is not easy and some may find it difficult but let’s not give up. We can reach out to each other in different ways. Where two or three are gathered together Christ is in the midst of us. Praise God. We are Christ’s body and connected to each other in and through Christ who is the head of us all.

I pray for those who may be feeling isolated or disconnected at the moment that you will know that you are still connected and to draw near to Him and He will draw near to you. If the Holy Spirit is convicting hearts of apathy or a lack of fire and zeal then I pray that repentance will come to our hearts and we will stir ourselves up and put our hands to the plough at this time. It is not wise for us to sit back and do nothing in these days.

The Lord is all sufficient for us in these present days. His grace is more than sufficient for us. The Lord is encouraging us to come to His table and eat and drink of His provision and not to leave the table until we are satisfied. When we eat our meals we know when we are full and the Lord wants us to know that same feeling of fullness in and through His Holy Spirit. He is a God of abundance. Let us fill ourselves up in Him. The Lord does not want us to be satisfied with crumbs but to come and feast at His table. We can also help feed each other out of the abundance that God gives to us.

When restrictions start lifting let us not to get distracted by the things which do not truly satisfy us. The Lord says “Why do you spend money for what is not bread, And your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, And let your soul delight itself in abundance.” Isaiah 55:2

May we use this time of confinement wisely and redeem the days God has blessed us with. May God refine us in His Holy Fire so that we are ready to do His will.

Let us keep the home fires burning 🔥

The refining fire

As I was fasting and praying, I believe I heard in the spirit, the Lord, Jesus saying the following;

 The day is coming when My fire, My breath will blow across this land. 

Great swathes of the land will catch fire and the fire will spread.  

Those who submit themselves to the fire of my holiness and glory will be refined.  They will shine like the stars of heaven. 

They will go out like a mighty army of people to serve me with whole hearts and faithfulness.  

The process of refining will be quick now. 

It will be a time to jump into the fire of God to be refined. 

All the muck and chaff to come off and away and what is left to be pure and reflect My glory.  

For I am a Holy God and I desire a holy people. 

Totally committed to me and with faith in Me. 

For this time is coming soon and the bride must prepare herself. 

Those who will not get into the fire will have no place in the ministry to come.  

They must be pure in Me, cleansed in Me, redeemed in Me. 

I have come to bring fire down from heaven. 

All glory and praise and honour to My name.   

He who has ears let him listen and understand what the Spirit is saying.    

The things which are not of Me are required to be burnt up like dross. 

They are required to be burnt and destroyed so that new life can come.  

Those things which are dead need to be put on the fire. 

I will breathe new life into you.”

Amen 🙏 blessings to you in Jesus name.
