Inspired by Aflame for God, by Smith Wigglesworth
By desensitizing people to miracles, to divine manifestations, and to divine works, we as a people desire less of the works -calling them theatrics-, and focus more on the materialistic prosperity - calling them blessings- as signs of God's involvement.
Nothing stops us from raising the dead
Nothing stops us from healing the blind
Nothing stops us from healing the sick
Nothing stops us from casting out demons
Nothing stops us from telling the lame to walk
Nothing stop us from doing greater works… except for this
How FIRED up are you for God?
Acts 3:6-8: “Then Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk. And he took him by the right hand and lifted him up, and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.”
The devil has so doused our fire with nonchalance
He has doused our fire with complacency
With “good enough”
That we fail to see what it is we are to be achieving.
John 14:12 states “He who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do…”
We call it societal norm, the new age
We have been so blind-sided, we call it
We make fun of men of a great God
Who are unapologetically on fire for God
We choose to call them show men, over-the-top
We go as far as mocking them openly
Even in the ‘Christian community’.
Luke 9:49-50: “…we saw someone casting out demons in Your name, and we forbade him because he does not follow with us. But Jesus said to him, ‘Do not forbid him for he who is not against us is on our side”
Where has our fire gone? Why won’t we reclaim it?
Philippians 1:16,17 -18: “Some indeed preach Christ even from envy and strife, and some also from goodwill; … but the latter out of love, knowing that I am appointed for the defense of the gospel. What then? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is preached and in this I rejoice, yes, and will rejoice”.
