THE FIRE OF GOD IS REAL.NOT ONLY SYMBOLIC From: derek leslie 15 Apr 2010 (19:10)
I have just read in this section the article about the fire of God. I write this in the hope it may help someone. its great to see someone else, talk about the fire of the Lord.
the fire of the baptism of the Holy Spirit, is not symbolic its real. it burns
inside a persons belly like a flaming candle,like tongues of fire.
(thats in the old testiment).the new testiment says he makes his servants like flames of fire. on the day of penticost the Holy Spirit came on their heads like
tongues of fire. i know from personal experiance that its not in any way just
symbolic.its very,very,real.it does burn in the belly just as the bible says.I only write this not to build myself up. but to help any christians who also experiance this, to assure them thats it is from the Lord. because i had a very hard time, when it frist happened to me when i became a christian. because not all experiance this. even some pastors, preachers, that will preach for hours that we all should all recieve this. and quote the bible verses to prove it. when told that it is real, back off really fast.they preach it, but they dont believe it.its a preach to the gallery.they even tell you to forget about it,it will pass.some well meaning christians will even tell you its from the devil.so it can be a very worrying time for a new christian if he recieves the fire. praise the Lord, he confermed it for me that it was from him. many times dynamicly. many christians do have the fire, but keep it to themselves. possibly to advoid the same problems that i had. but thats no help to those who are wondering what its all about. it took me nealy a year before other christians began to reveal they had the same fire.I wish that they had told me stright away to save me a lot of heart ache. thats why i write this.
there is too much to tell about it here. if any one is going though what i went though and wants more info to help them, send me a message.
luke 3. 16. he will baptise with fire. which happened at penticost.

The Fire of God is real  From: Margaret Boler 16 Apr 2010 (20:29)
I was filled with the fire and have not stopped burning over the last 38 years since I was baptised in the Holy Spirit.

We sing a chorus:-

It feels like fire shut up in my bones(rpt 3 times)

Glory,glory halleluyah!

It feels like fire shut up in my bones.

still trying brother dave to pass the fire on  From: derek leslie 18 Apr 2010 (17:59)
I am still trying brother Dave. and i will keep on whenever i can. my friend next door told me the other day that since i prayed for her hands on,outside on our drive, she feels a overwhelming desire to pray to the Lord. she said she cant stop praying nearly ever day now. we had both felt the power of the Lord fall as i prayed for her. we were outside, and after you could have cut the piece with a knife. i thought that the onointing had left me. so this has encouraged me.
it looks like its still there. but i dont know how to be able to use it if it is.
I believe thats its for nonchristians to bring them in. but how to do it i dont know. i dont meet people any more now i am retired.
ps, she is not a born again believer as we know it, also does not go to church etc.but she does believe in the Lord. and she now believes even more now, and
is really open now to listen to the good news.and now pray\'s all the time. I told her to ask for the Holy Spirit, so i am waiting now in eager antisipation.

THIS IS SO EXCITING AND SO ENCOURAGING  From: TREFLYN JONES 19 Apr 2010 (09:04)
THANKS FOR STARTING THIS THREAD.

ON THE DAY I WAS BAPTISED IN THE SPIRIT IN CHURCH (READ MY TESTIMONY) LATER THE SAME DAY I RECEIVED THE FULL ANNOINTING OF THE HOLY SPRIT UPON MY BODY. IT FELT LIKE WARM OIL BEING POURED OVER ME. I HAD THE SAME EXPEREINCE OF TWO SEPARATE OCCASIONS. MY FAITH HAS GROWN TO THE POINT WHERE I AM ASHAMED TO SAY THAT I THOUGHT THAT FAITH ALONE WOULD BE SUFFICIENT, BUT IT ISN\'T.

GOD HAS SHOWN ME RECENTLY (AND I AM EVEN MORE EXCITED NOW) THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT WANTS TO WORK THROUGH US, WE ARE A TEAM. WE HAVE TO ALLOW THE HOLY SPIRIT TO WORK THROUGH US, I WAS NOT ALLOWING THE HOLY SPIRIT TO WORK THROUGH ME BECAUSE I WAS OPERATING IN FAITH.

Matthew 17:20
He replied, \"Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, \'Move from here to there\' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.\"

I NOW UNDERSTAND THAT FOR MIRACLES AND HEALING, DELIVERANCE ETC TO MANIFEST WE NEED THE POWER AND THE HOLY SPIRIT WORKING THOUGH US.

Acts 10:38

38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him.


JAMES 4:7 SUBMIT YOURSELVES THEN TO GOD. RESIST THE DEVIL AND HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU.

THE OPERATIVE WORD HERE IS SUBMIT.

I RECEIVED A WORD FROM THE LORD LAST WEEK AND IT WAS THIS \"SUBMIT TO MY GRACE\".

THIS IS A LONG MEANING OF SUBMIT

Submit
(From Forerunner Commentary)
In the King James Version, \"submit\" appears only twelve times, \"submitted\" three times, and \"submitting\" once. In Greek, the word is hupotasso, which means \"to arrange in order under.\" It is actually a military term, and in the military there is a strong sense of submitting to someone of higher rank. A soldier must arrange himself in order under his sergeant. A sergeant arranges himself in order under the master-sergeants. A master-sergeant arranges himself in order under the lieutenants—and the lieutenants to the captain, the captain to the major, and right on up to the general, who himself must submit to the Commander-in-Chief. Everything is \"arranged in order under.\" Its \"bare bones\" meaning is that one has to arrange himself in order, that is, systematically, under another.

It appears in various English Bible translations other than the King James Version (and even sometimes in the King James) as \"subordinate,\" \"obey,\" \"subject to,\" \"submit,\" \"surrender,\" \"be weak,\" \"afflicted,\" \"humbled,\" \"put under,\" and—how about this one—\"stay in your place.\"

I AM NOW LEARNING TO SUBMIT TO GOD AND NOT GO IT ALONE, BY FAITH ALONE, BUT IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT.

I THANK GOD AND PRAISE HIS MIGHTY NAME FOR SHOWING THIS TO ME.

AMEN.
