God's River of Fire

“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).

This year, the Lord is really talking to His people about fire. Indeed, we have been led to host this online conference, Saturday, March 20. Fire is greatly associated with the Lord. His appearance can be like a devouring fire (Exod. 24:17). He led His people through the wilderness with a fiery pillar (Exod. 13:21). Psalm 104:4 states his ministers are a “flame of fire.” And we know that Jesus baptizes with the “Holy Spirit and fire” (Matt. 3:11). We also know He is a “consuming fire” (Heb. 12:29). This consuming fire always goes ahead of Him (Ps. 50:3). It devours the enemy (Deut. 9:3), but burns away the dross and impurities in us (1 Cor. 3:13).

I certainly don’t know all that He will do through this release of His fire, but here are three things to meditate on:

1. God wants His voice to be heard. “Our God shall come, and shall not keep silent; a fire shall devour before Him” (Ps. 50:3). God will not be silent. He wants us to hear His voice and be purified (1 Cor. 3:13). He wants unbelievers to hear His voice and be saved. Also, this fire will destroy the enemy that is trying to hinder His harvest and the end-times revival. Deuteronomy 9:3 states, “Understand today that the Lord your God who goes before you is a devouring fire; he will defeat and subdue them before you.”

2. His fire eliminates double-mindedness and releases rain of the Holy Spirit. In 1 Kings 18 is the well-known story of Elijah facing off with the prophets of Baal. The people were faltering between two opinions (18:21). God released His fire on Elijah’s offering, and they immediately believed God. As the Lord pours out His fire during this conference, we should expect doublemindedness to go. Also just as Elijah went on to pray and break the drought, we too should expect new faith and anointing causing rain of the Holy Spirit to fall for revival and harvest wherever we are.

3. New movements? Something happening in the courts of heaven—Daniel saw a vision of the end times. He saw the beast or anti-Christ and the terrible things they were doing. It was then that Daniel saw the throne of God. We read, “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).

I love this description. It makes me realize that our conference is not just for the release of fire on God’s people, but is also part of something much bigger. There is something moving in the courts of heaven. Just as Daniel foresaw the establishment of the kingdom of God, I feel we are standing at a time when tens of thousands will be released into God’s harvest fields and the kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ will become increasingly manifest.

Celebration Causes the Lord to “Remember” His People

When I taught on Purim last week, I saw something new about the importance of celebration. To celebrate means to lay aside your concerns and be happy in His presence. Esther did this and then everything began to turn. The king “remembered” what Mordecai had done and honored him. The two messages I taught on the subject are available here and here.

Adar—A Time to Enter Your True Identity

The Twelfth Month of the Hebrew Year 5781 (Feb. 13–Mar. 13)

What an incredible way to close out the Hebrew year by entering into and declaring one’s true identity. We are all fearfully and wonderfully made. The more we enter in to who we really are, the more peace, trust, and confidence are released. There is no need for masks or trying to be something we aren’t. Please click here for the full description of the month of Adar.
