HAVE YOU BEEN BURNED?


"One thing about the Refiner's Fire: 
the devil cannot stand in it, 
but You can." WALDEN


In 2009 I had a waking vision where I saw a captivating and incredibly beautiful figure whirling a sword with a pearl handle in the       s m o k e  that surrounded him. I asked, "Lord is that you?" I heard: "Look again." As I peered, I saw him clearly and it was certainly not the Lord. It was the clearest I have ever seen my enemy. As the vision unfolded I saw Y'shua appear to my right and held out his hand with authority proclaiming, "STOP!" With an inquisitive gesture I asked the Lord why the enemy was so clear, in fact seemed more clear than when I looked upon the Lord?...He replied, "So you can avoid him!" As He said this, F I R E went out before Him and under me. With a clarifying, yet purposeful tone He asked, "What did the fire do to you?" I replied in a mournful yelp, "It burned me Lord, it burned me." Gentleness from His voice smoothed away any pain as He said, "No, it refined you." Then the fire spread out in an accelerated rate under the beast. I inquired, "What did it do to him, Lord?" He replied, "It singed him beyond belief." The devil then disappeared in riffs of smoke.


"When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the r i v e r s, they will not overflow you;
When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched,
Nor will the flame burn you." 
Isaiah 43:2

During the last 7 years trials and tribulation has seemed common place for many. Fires of all types, waves of all sizes have seemed to hammer and burn to the point of no return, yet the fire has NOT burned you, the waves have NOT overtaken you. Not a hair on your head has been burned, nor do your clothes smell like smoke. Daniel 3:27 YOU have become the fire, and the more you realize that this fire is to help you, refine you, and strengthen you, You will see that your enemy cannot stand where you STAND!  Rise up Warriors!! Call down the F I R E OF HEAVEN into your circumstances. Watch and Stand, fully involved, and see the enemy disappear like riffs of smoke.


"When all kinds of trials and temptations crowd into your lives my brothers, don't resent them as intruders, but welcome them as friends! Realise that they come to test your faith and to produce in you the quality of endurance. But let the process go on until that endurance is fully developed, and you will find you have become mature of character with the right sort of independence." James 1:2-4


"I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. But He that comes after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: He will baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with FIRE!"   Matt. 3:11-12
