Consuming Fire

October 24, 2018

Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire.  Hebrews 12:28-29

Jesus, Mediator, Redeemer, Savior, King.

Righteous made perfect through blood.

Grace and gratitude.

Once aliens, now heirs.

Far away, brought near.

He is my peace.

Barrier destroyed.

Veil torn.

Wall of hostility demolished.

Jesus’ body reconciled me and you and them through the cross.

Made a way where there was no way.

Heaven’s gates flung wide open.

No longer foreigners and strangers.

Heavenly citizens

He builds His Temple in the hearts of people.

Live by His Spirit.

Power and Presence limited only by me.

He never forces or overrides free will.

I must ask and invite and submit to His will.

There is no love without freedom.

Control cancels.

Smothers and chokes.

God doesn’t love, He is love.

Everyone born of God overcomes the world.

The world is under control of the evil one.

His mission is to kill, deceive and destroy.

A roaring lion seeking to devour.

Darkness disguised as light.

Father of lies.

Soul battles remain.

Satan wants us all.

Armor of God.

Stand strong.

There is but one mission - the great commission. Click To Tweet

He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Mark 16:15

Therefore, go.

Make disciples of all Nations.

Baptize.

Teach them to obey His commands.

Lift your eyes.

Much darkness covers the people.

His shining greatness is in you.

Rise up and shine.

Proclaim His truth.

Speak words of life.

Captives and prisoners set free.

Called out of darkness into light.

Victory over death.

Light of the world gives light of life.

He anoints me to bring the afflicted good news.

Bind up the brokenhearted.

Liberty and freedom.

Eyes opened.

Bars broken.

The Lord of hosts breaks the yoke off necks and tears bonds.

No longer a slave.

He leads with bonds of love.

Love that bends and gives.

Food for the hungry.

Living water, bread of life.

A home for the lonely.

Prospers prisoners.

Justice for the oppressed.

Walk in freedom.

I give thanks to Your Name.

Worship with my life – a life that testifies to your truth or contradicts.

Pharisee.

Hypocrite.

Enemy evidence.

Living sacrifice means sacrifice.

Goes against the flow.

Follows the Word, not the world.

Counter-intuitive – last first, serve to lead.

Lead to love.

Lead to the cross.

Lead to everlasting life.

Battle lines drawn.

Spiritual war.

The world’s lies blind and deceive.

Souls are at stake.

Jesus is life.

The rest is detail.

But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect. 1 Peter 3:15

I'm a free spirit. I hate rules and legalism. I love art and nature, music, the beach and dogs. I like to garden, take pictures and read. I tend to speak my mind and have a rip-the-band-aid -off approach to life. (Brace yourself, this might hurt.)
