The Holy Spirit often shows me things in parables, analogies, metaphors as well as dreams and visions.
He showed me a mat of firecrackers. As the fuse is lit on the first one, it begins a chain reaction to ignite all the others after it.
The igniting happens in rapid sequence. Every year millions of spectators line the shorelines, waterways, streets and rooftops to watch the huge firework display in New York City on the 4th of July to celebrate Independence day.
The fireworks take on many forms to produce the four primary effects: light, smoke, noise and floating materials such as confetti.
There are some that are slightly delayed in igniting but not long after, they also explode in flames of brilliant colors of blue, red, orange, yellow, green, purple, silver and gold.
A couple of days ago, after the LORD gave me this word, I saw a picture of a friend with three other ministers who had just spoken at a prophetic conference.
The LORD said, these are those who I have called to ignite others who had grown weary. When they speak a word from the LORD to someone it will ignite something inside of them and bring transformation.
We are also called to en-kindle those who need a resurgence of the fire of God in their lives once again. The enemy will try to neutralize you because he knows that when you are ignited, you will go and release it to others.
A firecracker that does not detonate is called a dud. If you are in neutral you are not advancing.
The book of Leviticus speaks of how the priests had to continually keep the fire on the alter burning so that it would never go out. Jesus wants to ignite you with a fresh fire that never goes out so that you could release it to others simultaneously.
Just as Ezekiel said, His word was like a fire shut up in my bones. Small explosive devices could make thunderous sounds and bring great damage to the kingdom of darkness.
The LORD is calling His people to rekindle the fire in others that has been extinguished. Don’t allow anything to neutralize or smolder your zeal.
Stir yourself up and renew the passion that once burned in your heart because Jesus wants to release His glory through you in an unprecedented way.
“A fire shall always be burning on the altar; it shall never go out,” Leviticus 6:13.
“As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend,” Proverbs 27:17.
“But His word was in my heart like a burning fire shut up in my bones; I was weary of holding it back, and I could not,” Jeremiah 20:9b.
“That is why I would remind you to stir up (rekindle the embers of, fan the flame of, and keep burning) the [gracious] gift of God, [the inner fire] that is in you by means of the laying on of my hands with those of the elders at your ordination],” 2 Timothy 1:6 (Amplified).
