MESSAGE NOTES:

 

God On Fire

A. Greeting, Opening Prayer

B. What Does It Mean To Be On Fire?

· FULL OF PASSION

    – excited, not apathetic

· FOCUSED

   – nothing is more important

· ACTIVE

   – faith without works is dead (James 2:17)

· FULLY COMMITTED

C. GOD IS A CONSUMING FIRE

Hebrews 12:29   For our God is a consuming fire.

1) God isn’t just on Fire (although He is on Fire), but in fact God is a Fire – a consuming fire

Consuming

· consuming: Greek word is katanalískō (Strongs 2654)

· means “to consume utterly, wholly

· Synomyms:

absorb, devour, dominate, eat up, exhaust

2) God…WANTS….IT…ALL

Mark 12:30-31 (NKJV)

And you shall love the Lord your God with ALL your heart, with ALL your soul, with ALL your mind, and with ALL your strength

· Bible says the earth is the Lords

· Becoming born again is making Jesus the Lord of our life – permission to rule over EVERY AREA of our life

3) God Is A FIRE

· FULL OF PASSION

· FOCUSED

· ACTIVE

· FULLY COMMITTED

a) When you receive the Holy Spirit, you also receive fire

Luke 3:16

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.

b) God wants his messengers to be “flaming fires”

Psalm 104:4

He makes his messengers winds, his ministers a flaming fire

c) God’s word is on fire

Jeremiah 23:29

Is not my word like fire, declares the Lord, and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?

d) There is no glory without fire

2 Chronicles 7:1

As soon as Solomon finished his prayer, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices, and the glory of the Lord filled the temple.

4) SPARKS VS. FIRE

Dictionary.com:

Spark:

· an ignited or fiery particle

· any electric arc of relatively small energy content.

– Sparks are momentary, usually less a second

– They represent a fire but are not actual fires

a) Rev. 3:15-16 (NKJV)

“I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.

· You can feel heat from a fire but not actually be on fire

· Being touched momentarily by a flame is not the same as being on fire

· You can be sitting next to someone who is on fire and never catch on fire yourself

5) HOW TO CATCH ON FIRE

a) Proximity is Power

1. It’s hard to be on fire about something or someone that you are not excited about.

2. It’s hard to be excited about someone if you don’t feel that they love you or care about you.

3. It’s hard to know if someone cares about you unless you spend time with them. Getting close to them. Looking in their eyes. Notice how they talk to you.

4. When you get close to God you will feel His love for you. You will feel the heat of his fire. You will want more

YOU WILL CATCH ON FIRE!

 

b) GOD HAS A HEART, IT’S ON FIRE, AND IT’S FULL OF LOVE

· God is a fire (Hebrews 12:29)

· God is love (I John 4:8)

Find a Fire, and Watch It Burn (From Keys to Massive Breakthrough, James Robor . pg 71)

Something happens when people get close to a fire and watch it burn—they get warm. If they get close enough to the fire and spend enough time near it, they can even get hot—they can even catch on fire! Whatever breakthrough you need, find someone who has achieved that very breakthrough themselves. If possible, find someone who has some kind of resource that you can draw from, like a book, audiobook, podcast, radio program, or even a TV program.

Once you have found a fire, watch it burn, burn, burn! Watch the fire for as long as you have to, and make sure to find a fire that never goes out. Watch the fire burn until you are on fire yourself. It’s not enough to just see and feel the fire. The fire must eventually be in you. That is when the true change comes. If your house is cold in the winter and your neighbor’s house is warm, you can visit his house and get warm, but eventually you must turn the heat on in your own house for you and your family’s sake.

He makes his messengers winds, his ministers a flaming fire

Jeremiah 23:29 NKJV

 

Is not my word like fire, declares the Lord, and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?

When Solomon finished praying, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices, and the glory of the Lord filled the temple.

 

I John 4:8

Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.

 

Rev. 3:15-16 NKJV

“I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.

 

Jeremiah 20:9 ESV

If I say, “I will not mention him, or speak any more in his name,” there is in my heart as it were a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I am weary with holding it in, and I cannot.
