A Fiery Angel here tonight. It got so hot while helping fix tent in the back room with screen door open, and when I felt it, and commented I thought there was a Fiery Angel here, The Holy Spirit reacted strongly within me.
I heard: “It’s time for advancement of My Troops” says The LORD!
“I AM that I AM is at the door, for I have extended My Arm to right all that has been made wrong, and to bring justice for My Sons and Daughters.
There is much correction coming to The Church that is called by My Name, for much corruption has crept in, much delusion and deception.
My Word is not as honored as it once was. Rationalization for sin is at an all time high. I know the mind control games the enemy has played against the lost and against those who have said yes to Me.
I AM coming, and it is at hand. Don’t go back to the “good old ways”, but go further back to the Original Way of The Church.
Remember the former days, when persecution was in the land, and martyrs were plentiful.
Remember I said, ‘You are going out, the way you came in’, speaking of The Church.
You came in under persecution, and you will go forth out in persecution. This is only the beginning, and floods of souls are going to come into The Church.
Much of The Church is unprepared for what I will do.
Those of you who know, I AM counting on to bring them up to speed.
I will reestablish The Holy Spirit’s reign in My Church. I will destroy the syncretism** in a moment, in many lives who have been so proud and deceived.
Be not haughty about what you do know, but just demonstrate My Glory. For I will back you up extraordinarily!
The lost will come in droves, because they will see with their own eyes, and hear with their own ears the wonders of My Glory.
They will be astounded and transformed in moments. Deliverance for all held captive will be available quickly, if they will humble themselves, and even those you thought too oppositional will be changed in a moment of time due to the power of My Glory poured out through you.
Set your expectations higher My beloveds, for I know how the enemy has pummeled your faith with all the violence and mind control, and attacks on you and your families.
Expect breakthrough now, because the Angels are already at your side waiting for assignments, waiting for My Word, and yours to carry out orders.
Trembling will fill the hearts of the wicked and unbelieving. They will literally shake in fear at the demonstrations of My Power!
Even you will be astonished and marvel at the surprises I AM bringing. So be not afraid!”
Then I heard a refrain from an old Bob Dylan song, “The answer my friend is blowin’ in the wind, the answer is blowin in the wind.” When God uses songs to speak to me, usually there is something in the song alluding to His concerns.
“Blowin’ in the Wind” by ©Bob Dylan — Lyrics:
How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, and how many times must the cannonballs fly
Before they’re forever banned?
The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind
Yes, and how many years can a mountain exist
Before it’s washed to the sea?
Yes, and how many years can some people exist
Before they’re allowed to be free?
Yes, and how many times can a man turn his head
And pretend that he just doesn’t see?
The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind
Yes, and how many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
Yes, and how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes, and how many deaths will it take ’til he knows
That too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind.
“The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of The Spirit.” John 3:8 NKJV.
Ruach** — The Hebrew ruach means “wind,” “breath,” or “spirit.”
The corresponding Greek word is pneuma. Both words are commonly used in passages referring to The Holy Spirit.
The word’s first use in the Bible appears in the second verse: “The Spirit of God [Ruach Elohim] was hovering over the waters” (Genesis 1:2).
In Genesis 6:17 ruach is translated “breath of life.”
Genesis 8:1 uses ruach to describe the “wind” God sent over the earth to recede the Flood waters. Altogether, the word ruach is found almost 400 times in the Old Testament…
God’s Ruach is the source of life. The Ruach of God is the One who gives life to all creation.
We could say that God’s Ruach has created every other (non-divine) ruach that exists. All living creatures owe the breath of life to the Creative Spirit of God. Moses states this truth explicitly: “God . . . gives breath [ruach] to all living things” (Numbers 27:16).
Job understood this truth as well: “As long as I have life within me, the breath [ruach] of God in my nostrils” (Job 27:3). Later, Elihu tells Job, “The Spirit of God has made me; the breath of the Almighty gives me life” (Job 33:4).
God used the phrase Ruach Yahweh in His promise that the Messiah would be empowered by The Holy Spirit:
“The Spirit of The LORD will rest on Him — the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of might, the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of The LORD” Isaiah 11:2 (see also Isaiah 42:1).
This prophecy was fulfilled in Jesus; at His baptism in the Jordan River, John saw “the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him” (Matthew 3:16).
**Ruach : Notes from © Got Questions
Indeed the answers are blowin’ in the Wind of The Spirit for this hour!
The LORD continued, “I AM bringing Fire on The Altars of Worship to Me in this Nation and all Nations.
I AM bringing Fire on the individual lives of those who worship Me, versus the world and all it’s idols.
My Fire will burn up every wicked thing that has held people in bondage. Those who are unwilling to surrender will find themselves helpless to overcome the Fire that comes down from above.
I Will have Mt Way in The Church that is called by My Name! The Sword of The LORD is coming across every Saul in the land, to purge the darkness from them.
Many will be the slain in this hour who refuse to repent. The Fire of My love is burning across the land, and will empower those whose hearts are for Me.
But for those whose hearts are corrupt and wicked, woe to them!
Pray for every leader in your communities, because I come quickly now upon the wings of the Wind. Remember Ananias and Sapphira!”
“Trepidation fills the hearts of many in this world. The whole World is about to change!
The Windows of Heaven are beginning to pour out Water as never before, from The Throne Room of Heaven.
Mysteries are about to be revealed as never before. Everything is alive and vibrant and waiting for this outpouring.
The earth is groaning, Beloveds, and My Creation is in pain. I hear the cries of those murdered by sorcery and witchcraft, war and hatred. I hear the cries of those left behind in grief.”
( I thought back to the report of 27 Syrians slaughtered by Muslims just last week, nothing left but a bloody mess, and to those murdered in the school in Texas and elsewhere, because the beast wants more control.
Also today, I felt The LORD had told me they are about to call up youth into conscription. )
“My Heart breaks daily for all I AM seeing in the world. Injustice. Destruction and chaos, that old serpent, have raised their heads thinking they will rule My Creation, swirling about all their lies and deceptions.
Remember My Word is your balance of Truth. It is revealed Truth. Eat My Scroll beloveds! Get it deep inside and prophesy it to the darkness in the heavens and around you.
Confuse the darkness by praising Me! Lift up your voices and Sing, Dance on the Injustice!
Show the enemy you will not be intimidated by his fear mongering and threats. Know that I Love you and AM your Rear Guard!
I AM fighting right beside you! They may despise Me, and therefore despise you, but in the end, I AM taking my stand upon the earth!
I have trained you in Fortitude, Forbearance, and Persistence! Many of you have gone through much hardship through the things you have suffered.
Many have waited with difficulty, suppressing their impatience, but others need to put away all thoughts of self pity, sorrow, and grief.
The enemy attempts to make many to think they deserve better and convinces them to fight in a worldly way with resentment and bitterness in their hearts.
Some even want to approve of murderous intentions of the wicked in high places, just so they can get money, fame and fortune for themselves. Their motives are all messed up, because they don’t really know Me.
They don’t know My Ways, nor how valuable they are to Me. They give in to get rich quick schemes of the enemy, trying to manipulate their justice deserved (they think) when in fact they are employing the tactics of the enemy.
They have harbored racism and blame as their companions. While others are harboring selfishness, thinking they would never take care of a brother in trouble, what they have is their own!
Are you your brother’s keeper? You will find out soon.
For in days pending, impoverishment of spirit will catch up with impoverishment physically, and you will learn the hard way that you need one another, and I will be found in the one another’s in this harvest!“
“Is it a fast that I have chosen, a day for a man to afflict his soul? Is it to bow down his head like a bulrush, and to spread out sackcloth and ashes? Would you call this a fast, and an acceptable day to The LORD?
Is this not the fast that I have chosen: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every yoke? Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, and that you bring to your house the poor who are cast out; when you see the naked, that you cover him, and not hide yourself from your own flesh? Then your light shall break forth like the morning, your healing shall spring forth speedily, and your righteousness shall go before you; The Glory of The LORD shall be your rear guard. Then you shall call, and The LORD will answer; You shall cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am.’ “If you take away the yoke from your midst, the pointing of the finger, and speaking wickedness,
If you extend your soul to the hungry and satisfy the afflicted soul, then your light shall dawn in the darkness, and your darkness shall be as the noonday. The LORD will guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and strengthen your bones; you shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail. Those from among you shall build the old waste places; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach, The Restorer of Streets to Dwell In.
If you turn away your foot from the Sabbath, from doing your pleasure on My Holy Day, and call the Sabbath a delight, The Holy Day of The LORD honorable, and shall honor Him, not doing your own ways, nor finding your own pleasure, nor speaking your own words, then you shall delight yourself in The LORD, and I will cause you to ride on the high hills of the earth, and feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father. The mouth of The LORD has spoken.” Isaiah 58:5-15 NKJV.
“This is the key, Beloveds, that you need if you want Me to be your Rear Guard and faithful supporter.
I give you much leeway when you are new to My Word and My Kingdom. This is the same as the golden rule I gave you in the New Testament, is it not? To love Me with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself!?
I AM shaking Nations, because they have forgotten this, forgotten Me, and taken other gods to themselves, just as Israel did in Jeremiah’s time.
I will bring them to repentance, and manifest My Glory through you, that they may know once again, the One True GOD!”
“Then he led me to the gate, the gate facing east. And behold, the glory of the God of Israel was coming from the east. And the sound of His coming was like the sound of many waters, and the earth shone with His glory. And the vision I saw was just like the vision that I had seen when he came to destroy the city, and just like the vision that I had seen by the Chebar canal. and I fell on my face.” Ezekiel 43:1-3 ESV,
“And David built there an altar to The LORD and presented burnt offerings and peace offerings and called on The LORD, and The LORD answered him with fire from heaven upon the altar of burnt offering.” 1 Chronicles 21:26 ESV.
“When Moses came down from Mount Sinai, with the two tablets of the testimony in his hand as he came down from the mountain, Moses did not know that the skin of his face shone because he had been talking with God.” Exodus 34:29 ESV.
“‘I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth. For you say, I am rich, I have prospered, and I need nothing, not realizing that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked. I counsel you to buy from me gold refined by fire, so that you may be rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself and the shame of your nakedness may not be seen, and salve to anoint your eyes, so that you may see. Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline, so be zealous and repent.” Revelation 3:15-20 ESV.
“Those who look to him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed.” Psalm 34:5 ESV.
“When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with The Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.” Acts 2:1-3 ESV.
“John answered them all, saying, “I baptize you with water, but he who is mightier than I is coming, the strap of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with The Holy Spirit and with fire.” Luke 3:16 ESV.
**Syncretism : sĭng′krĭ-tĭz″əm :
1) Reconciliation or fusion of differing systems of belief, as in philosophy or religion, especially when success is partial or the result is heterogeneous.
2) The merging of two or more originally different inflectional forms.
3) The attempted reconciliation or union of irreconcilable principles or parties, as in philosophy or religion; specifically, the doctrines of a certain school in the Lutheran Church, followers of Calixtus, who attempted to effect a union among all Christians, Protestant and Catholic.

How Many Times Has God Sent Fire From Heaven?
Answer from ©God Questions.
“Fire has come down from heaven several times in history. The Bible records at least six of these instances:
Fire fell from heaven and destroyed Job’s flocks (Job 1:16). This was a direct attack from Satan, but, as the earlier part of Job 1 explains, Satan was acting with the permission of God (verse 12). It was a tragedy allowed by God and, in the end, bringing glory to God. On the other side of his trials, Job was blessed with even larger flocks (Job 42:12).
Fire coming down from heaven was also a means of God’s judgment. Fire in the form of burning sulfur rained from the heavens and destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 19:24; Luke 17:29). God also used fire from heaven to judge the soldiers sent by the wicked king Ahaziah to arrest Elijah — twice, fire descended from heaven to consume a group of fifty soldiers sent on the king’s business (2 Kings 1:10,12).
But fire from heaven is not exclusively a means of judgment. On at least three occasions, God sent fire from above in order to consume a sacrifice: fire came down from heaven to consume the sacrifice that David offered on the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite (1 Chronicles 21:26); to consume the sacrifice at the dedication of the temple, in the presence of King Solomon and the people of Israel (2 Chronicles 7:1); and to consume Elijah’s sacrifice on Mt. Carmel, in response to the prophet’s simple prayer (1 Kings 18:38).
In each sacrifice consumed by fire from heaven, God was making an important point. In David’s case, God was forgiving David’s sin in conducting a census and halting a plague in Israel. He was also choosing the place where the future temple would be built. In Solomon’s case, God was consecrating that location as the place where His name would dwell forever (2 Chronicles 7:16). The people’s reaction was to worship the Lord and say, “He is good; his love endures forever” (2 Chronicles 7:3). In Elijah’s case, God was shaming the prophets of Baal, whose god sent no fire, and claiming His rightful title as Lord God of Israel. The people on Mt. Carmel “fell prostrate and cried, ‘The LORD—he is God! The LORD—he is God!’” (1 Kings 18:39).
Interestingly, during Jesus’ earthly ministry, two of His disciples, James and John, wanted to call down fire from heaven in judgment of a Samaritan village that did not welcome the Lord. Jesus, however, “turned and rebuked them” (Luke 9:55). He had not come “to condemn the world, but to save the world” (John 3:17). James and John, rightly called the “sons of thunder” (Mark 3:17), wanted what they thought was justice, but their idea went against God’s plan of mercy. God’s justice will come, but on His terms, not ours.
In the end-times tribulation, the false prophet will cause fire to come down from heaven as a means of deceiving people into worshiping the Antichrist (Revelation 13:13).
And, at the end of the millenium, God promises that He will destroy the armies of Gog and Magog with fire from heaven (Revelation 20:9).”
