10 Dec Baptism by Spirit and Fire
Something is wrong with today’s Laodicean Christianity. With such a vast knowledge about God and not of God, all we have produced is the form of godliness denying the power. Folks refused to change. Believers fight each other, pray against each other and not the enemy- Satan is a liar. Many Pastors sees each other as enemies. Instead of going out to win souls for the Lord, it’s all about wrecking, exacting and ruling over them while claiming their ownership just because of number game, empire building and money (Ezekiel 34:1-4). What we call growth is basically a “fish changing its tank”. “From whence come wars and fighting among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.”
Majority cannot pray and hear God discreetly. For a lot of people, God is one old man somewhere, difficult to reach and the enemy is having a field day destroying so many because of their lack of knowledge and encounter with God. In this era where there is a high state of spiritual recklessness, we need to be armed with DIVINE SPIRITUAL POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT to disgrace the agents of darkness that is unleashing terror upon this generation.
I will share a testimony of a woman who was earnestly seeking the fruit of the womb who came to see the preacher and was told that all she needed was the baptism and the infilling of the power of the refining and consuming FIRE of the Holy Spirit. She received both the Spirit and Fire baptism. (This is new to this generation who are only accustomed to water and spirit baptism), and immediately went into a strange abdominal pain. She was rushed to the nearest hospital because of the deep pain and delivered a live snake. The following month she became pregnant. When the power of the Holy Ghost came upon her, it challenged and ejected the stranger that is in her body. Indeed, “strangers shall fade away, and they shall be afraid out of their close places.” Psalm 22:46
Hear this, your spiritual life will be a washout without the constant touch of the Holy Spirit Fire. You will be like a football without air pumped into it. You will be like a trunkless elephant. Human intelligence cannot overcome Satan and the Holy Spirit is more than just speaking or praying in tongues. Hallelujah!
