OUR GOD IS A CONSUMING FIRE

We don’t just go from glory to glory. We are CHANGED from Glory to Glory.

II Corinthians 4:7 says, “But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all surpassing power is from God, and not from us.”

When jars of clay go into the kiln, they are a brown, gooey consistency that doesn’t have much strength or resistance. But after firing, a beautiful piece of pottery emerges, strong and translucent, aglow from the fire, crafted by the Master Potter’s hands.

We need the refining fire. Since we know our God is a CONSUMING FIRE, the Spirit of God lives and dwells in us, and we want to do only what we see the Father do, should we not be a consuming fire also?

Fire is the image used throughout the Bible to describe the inner nature of God’s heart.

Fire heals, cleanses, purifies. The fire Jesus brings is holy fire! Fire produces passion! It’s in the fire that that all of our false heroes, all of our false kings die, and that’s the season we will see the Lord.
