Are You Hungry for the Fire of God in your Life? Do you want to stand with Moses at the burning bush as he beheld that the bush was on fire but it was not consumed? Do you want to stand with the prophet Ezekiel as he beheld the one who was fire from his loins up and fire from his loins down? Do you want to stand with the prophet Elijah on Mount Carmel as he prayed that fire down and it consumed the sacrifice, the altar and everything around it? Do you want that fire to burn so deeply in your soul until it lifts you up out of the plains of normal existence to that reality where the supernatural becomes natural? If your answer is yes, then come with me on a journey of discovery. In 'Where did the Fire Go?' you will discover what this Fire of God really is and how to experience this baptism of Fire.
You will discover the three types of encounters that start a fire in your life and the particular one that keeps it going. You will discover the seven things that the Fire of God will accomplish in your life. You will rediscover your identity in Christ and see how the knowledge of who you are combined with the knowledge of your divine assignment work together to get a fire started in your life. You will discover the true meaning of worldliness and how to have victory over the world through your faith. You will see once and for all that you are from above and learn how to continually operate from there. You might as well take out some fire insurance before reading this book because the pages are sizzling hot! This is not Christianity as usual.
Drawing from an encounter I had with the Lord several years ago together with the wealth of progressive revelation that the Lord has afforded me in my walk with Him, I present this book to the body of Christ with a prayer that by virtue of these words an unquenchable fire will be ignited by God in our hearts; a fire that will drive us to win the world for Jesus; a fire that will cause us to burn the bridges behind us and say 'All to Jesus I surrender, all to him I freely give!' That fire awaits you in the pages of this book.
What is fire? Fire is zeal fuelled by love. Fire is passion fuelled by affection. Fire is that indescribable something that makes a timid Peter rise up on the day of Pentecost to Preach a Christ that he once denied and proclaim a gospel that he was once ashamed of. What is fire? Fire is that urgency in our souls to reach humanity with the love of Christ. It is the engulfing of our entire beings in God's vision until we see through his eyes, speak through his lips and touch through his hands.
It may be that you like many have experienced this fire in your life before. You have felt the heat of the everlasting burnings and experienced the warmth of a heart acquainted with the communion of the Father but somewhere along the way, the fire departed and you were left with the question 'Where did the fire go?' You are not alone! The Lord asked me to write this book specifically because He had you in mind.
In the pages of this book you will discover the different directions in which the fire left you and in discovering the path of its departure you will discover the path of its recovery. Not only will you re-capture your fire but this time around you will keep it. I will unmask to you the strategies of the enemy so that you can beat him in his game every single time. Satan is about to have a bad day because of you. And so I say 'Welcome to the School of Fire where gold is refined and silver is purified.' You will never remain the same again!
