2021/3/10 Releasing the Fire Conference

Ron Sawka Ministries

March 10, 2021; Adar 26, 5781

Understand today that the Lord your God who goes before you is a devouring fire; he will defeat and subdue them before you” (Deut. 9:3, NET, emphasis added).

“A river of fire was streaming forth and proceeding from his presence. Many thousands were ministering to him; many tens of thousands stood ready to serve him. The court convened and the books were opened” (Dan. 7:10, NET, emphasis added).

“Now the appearance of the glory of the Lord was like a devouring fire on the top of the mountain in plain view of the people” (Exod. 24:17, NET, emphasis added).

Releasing the Fire Conference

Saturday, March 20, 7:30–9:30 p.m. (Japan Time)

Releasing the Fire Conference Registration: English, Japanese, Russian

I feel we are entering into a time of God releasing His fire like never before. We know that Jesus baptizes with the Holy Spirit and fire (Matt. 3:11) and this was gradually lost to the church. We know God began to restore this with the revivals of Azusa, Wales, and Pyongyang roughly some 115 years ago. So now we are at the place where the working of the Holy Spirit has been restored and is properly emphasized. However, I can’t help but wonder if what the Lord is emphasizing next is His fire. I feel that in this next decade we will come to understand, experience, and work with His fire (including angels, because all His ministers are flames of fire [Ps. 104:4]).

Fire of God and Intercession

When I woke up this morning, my first thought was, “Pray without ceasing” (1 Thess. 5:17). This was curious because before going to sleep the night before, the Lord spoke to me from Matthew 5:44, which exhorts us to “pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you.” The early church did this, and Saul—their most violent persecutor—encountered Jesus and was transformed into the Apostle Paul (see March 9 MPP).

We know that God is a consuming or devouring fire that goes before us (Deut. 9:3). As we pray, we can trust His fire to burn away any enemy inside of us such as fear, complacency, unbelief, or spiritual dullness. Likewise, it will also go before us and consume our external spiritual enemies. His fire consumes/devours all those things that are standing against the Lord and His plans and will.

Be sure to pray for your personal enemies—Since God’s fire consumes anything that resists Him, we can expect that as we pray for difficult people (and we all have them in our lives), God’s fire can very well burn out their issues. No one can promise what will happen, but it could be that the prayers for your own enemy result in a “Saul”—somehow, somewhere—becoming a “Paul.”

Thank you for praying for us and with us. Our prayer for you and for all of us is that we receive more and more of His fire.

Thanks for praying. Be blessed.

Judah Goes First—Let This Be a Month of Extra Praise

Nissan: The first month of the Hebrew Year, March 14–April 12

When God decided to set Israel free from Egypt, He told them to start numbering their months (Exod. 12:2), which helps us understand why the Lord wants us to pay attention to each month. He wants us to experience more deliverance, become increasingly free, and grow in Him. Nissan is also connected with the tribe of Judah, which means “praise.” Let this be a month of extra praise as we follow the Lord into all He has for us. (Blessings for the month of Nissan may be found here.)
