BAPTISM OF FIRE
I am an all-consuming fire because I burn with passion for you. My love burns away everything that is not of the light and hinders love. I am raising up an army of burning ones. You have heard "it only takes a spark to get a fire going"; but I say to you, I am stirring up the embers. This will be a wildfire that no man can extinguish. It will be a baptism of My fiery love of which there is no end.
Revival is not simply conviction of sin, but recognition of My holiness. A passion to have everything of the darkness removed by coming into My light. My refining fire will not destroy you, but it will destroy the sin and desire for it, so that you are consumed with passion for Me, as I am consumed with passion for you. Come into the light where you will find life in Me! Let Me remove the dross in the refining fires of My love. Then you will shine forth as the stars of heaven and bring great glory to the Father.
Hebrews 12:28-29 The Message (MSG)
28-29 Do you see what we’ve got? An unshakable kingdom! And do you see how thankful we must be? Not only thankful, but brimming with worship, deeply reverent before God. For God is not an indifferent bystander. He’s actively cleaning house, torching all that needs to burn, and he won’t quit until it’s all cleansed. God himself is Fire!
Matthew 3:11 New International Version (NIV)
I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.
Malachi 3:3 Amplified Bible (AMP)
He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and He will purify the sons of Levi [the priests], and refine them like gold and silver, so that they may present to the Lord [grain] offerings in righteousness.
