“For this reason I remind you to kindle afresh the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands,” 2 Timothy 1:6.
“Then I said, “I will not make mention of Him, nor speak any more in His name.” But His word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones; and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not hold back,” Jeremiah 20:9.
(The Spirit of the LORD showed me a camp fire which was burning. The flames rose from it and they were carried throughout the air to different people. I saw the flames enter into the mouth of someone and encircle this person, and then the flames were carried in the air to someone else.)
“The fire of My Spirit is spreading to all. I will blow upon those flames. I will be the billow that blows upon them. But even as I have given unto each a gift, a ministry from Me, it is your job to fan into flames that gift.
For is My Word not like fire, that burns within you? The greater the billows are, the greater will be the fire that emerges.
For as that fire is stirred, as it is stoked, the fire within you emerges stronger. It emerges and then spreads to others. And as each and everyone is touched by that flame, then an entire people is caught ablaze with My Spirit.
But how do you fan into flame that which is within you? You spend time with Me praying in the Spirit. And very soon that which was just coals, becomes a great flame.
That fire will burn within you. It will cultivate those things that are hidden in Me. It will burn away the dross; and it will strengthen you for the journey ahead.”
