Baptism of Fire
"I came to send fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled!" (Luke 12:49).
I am even now sending forth a fire on the earth to prepare My people and My church. It is even now being kindled in the hearts of My chosen ones. As on the Day of Pentecost, like as tongues of fire, it is alighting on the hearts of My people to separate and to make alive. It is all at once a consuming fire of purification and a kindling fire of zeal. I am sending forth My spirit of burning to wash away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and to purge the blood of Jerusalem from her midst, a refining fire to purify the sons of Levi. And I am purifying your faith as gold tested in the fire that you may be found to be to My praise and My glory. Even as it consumes, it makes alive.
I am releasing My baptism of fire upon My people. With My winnowing fan I will separate you and burn up the chaff. I will bring you through the fire, and refine you as silver is refined, and test you as gold is tested. You will call on My name, and I will answer you. I will say, 'This is My people;' and each one will say, 'The LORD is my God.'
As wood is gathered in a pile to make a great burning, so will I gather together to Myself My saints, to make a great burning. And as the fires increase and the flames spew off sparks that kindle the brush, so will the sparks of My burning fly out from your midst and be carried on the wings of My Spirit to kindle the flames of My burning from heart to heart, city to city and nation to nation. I will send forth My chosen ones with the spirit of Jehu and they shall go forth with the fires of My zeal and gather My remnant people for the kindling of their hearts. My fire shall flow forth from their hands to consume the chaff and set the captives free.
I am anointing My servants to carry the coals of My fire to My people. They shall shine with My brightness and turn many to righteousness. Cities shall be set ablaze at My word and multitudes shall be baptized with My consuming fire. Islands and coastlands shall be set ablaze and send forth sparks of revival across the waters. Out of the fiery furnace shall come forth laborers for the harvest ready to do My will.
