Coming Baptisms of Fire
“I saw people within the Body of Christ so overwhelmed and burning with the revelation of the Gospel and the fire of His love. The perfect love of Jesus was going into the world as these ones shared the greatest love story ever told with a completely new and fresh fire. There is a divine re-engagement with the Gospel that will take place in this baptism of Holy Spirit fire, leading to deep wells of encounter. This synergy I saw, of burning Holy Spirit fire for the Gospel, was so powerful. Believers were transformed, chains of fear in sharing the Gospel were gone and replaced with a new boldness and a bursting forth within the Church.” (Lana Vawser)1
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.” (John 3:16; NASB)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- Desire to be a “burning one” for the Lord. Welcome the baptism of fire.
- Ask God to perfect His love within you.
- Stand up and break any chains of fear and hesitation off yourself which hold you back from sharing the Gospel.
- Read the Gospel of Mark and get fired up to do the works that Jesus did, propelled by the same Love that propelled Him.
A prayer you can pray:
Lord, I want to be a “burning one.” I’m afraid to ask for Your baptism of fire, but I know I have to receive it. Burn away anything in me that keeps me from coming close to You. Burn away anything that keeps me from sharing Your love with others. Melt away every chain of fear and timidity. Make me shine with Your love! As I read the Book of Mark, build my faith and make me ready to share Your love everywhere I go! I want to make You known, Jesus! Amen.
I decree that the Body of Christ is being purified with God’s holy fire, and the lost in America will be drawn to His love story seen in us!
