Topic: Fire for Fire
Text : Heb 12:28-29
The concept of God as a consuming fire includes both the idea of God's jealousy, holy nature and His JUDGEMENT upon those who oppose Him.
The overall idea is one of power, both POSITIVELY in the sense of DESERVING WORSHIP and NEGATIVELY IN PUNISHING those who oppose him.
WHAT DOES FIRE REPRESENT?
- God's protection (Zecc 2:5, Num 9:29)
- God's vengeance (Deu 4:24, Heb. 12:29)

- Christ as church judge

- Zeal of angels (Ps 104;4, Heb 1:7)
- Persecution (Luke 12:49-53)

CATEGORIES OF FIRE CHRISTIANS
- ASHY CHRISTIANS: The fire was there but the evidence is thereby, ash is shiny, there is no much combustion. they lie with impurity, exaggerate what they do for God, sin with passion yet they come to church.Manifestation: Spirit husband/wife, masquerades, demonic presses, satanic arrows.
- SPARKY CHRISTIANS: The fire appears and disappears quickly. They are very quick to recognize fault of others, but never see anything wrong in their own lifes. Fire is dying yet they are jumpy. I called them jumpy-bumpy Y0-Yo Christians. Manifestation: Fornication, pride, lying, wordliness.
- COALY CHRISTIANS : We can see the fire but no flame. still waiting to be told what to do. Not ready for serious commitment. Still value the things of the world, they give God mandates instead of receiving instructions and direction from Him. They tell God until i marry, i wont be a worker, until am rich I wont be a pastor. They easily compromise standards due to afflictions and challenges. Manifestation: Gifted but takes God for granted complacent
- FLAMY CHRISTIANS : Heavenly minded. They value the Kingdom of God, soul winners. Their life's typifies what they profess.They are EAGER for the things of God. They value the kingdom, respect the principles and are actual principal actors in the kingdom. They tithe, pray, live holy, and encourage others to do same. Do not join the multitude to do EVIL. They are supportive, they ignite the FIRE in the church. They are fiery Christians, They use everything that happens to them as a means to GROW. They keep learning, keep growing, very PASSIONATE for God. Some people are what they are because of FAULTY FOUNDATION. Manifestation: Strong believing spirit, You cant know if they are going through affliction or sufferings. Ready for assignment for God anytime. Don't give God excuse
