Holy Spirit and Fire

speaker: Sadhu SundarSelvaraj

 

God the Father manifested like a man but the Holy Spirit’s form is limitless. It can be a pillar of fire, clouds and lightning, streams or rives, wind or lights and colours.

Revelation 4:5 says, “From the throne came flashes of lightning, rumblings, and pearls of thunder. In front of the throne seven lighted torches were burning, which are the seven spirits of God.”

1. Rivers of living water (John 7:37-39 says, “On the last and most important day of the festival Jesus stood up and said in a loud voice, ‘Whoever is thirsty should come to me, and whoever believes in me should drink. As the scripture says, ‘Streams of life-giving water will pour out from His side.’ Jesus said this about the Spirit, which those who believed in Him were going to receive. At that time the Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus had not been raised to glory.”)

2. Wind and fire (Acts 2: 1-4 says, “When the day of Pentecost came, all the believers were gathered together in one place. Suddenly there was a noise from the sky which sounded like a strong wind blowing, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then they saw what looked like tongues of fire which spread out and touched each person there. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to talk in other languages, as the Spirit enabled them to speak.”)

3. Pillar of cloud and fire (Ezekiel 13:21 says, “I will rip off your scarves and let my people escape from your power once and for all. Then you will know that I am the Lord.”)

It’s important to be filled in the Holy Spirit to guide us to all truth. If you ask a reference and can’t find it in the bible, you’ll doubt and say, “This thing is not of God.” If you come up with that conclusion, you’re going to miss the boat. The next time the Holy Spirit come it will manifest in the latter and former rain in a perfect storm. If the Holy Spirit comes like that and you won’t have reference and ask, “Where is it in the bible?” and the angel of God will start to write it in Acts 29…30…31.

You must be prepared to get wet in the rain. When that comes, you must throw all your “umbrellas” or religious concepts and box-up mentality) thinking that this and that is how God would work. So you’ll put up your umbrella but it won’t prevent the rain. The rain will still come. The only difference is you won’t get wet. You must start practising in the rain!

The Holy Spirit says, “He that is filthy, let him continue; he that is righteous, let him continue.”

If he wish to live righteous, he’ll walk like Adam originally walk in Eden with God. This would be given to the overcomer church, not the church per se, not to everybody. You can either live a life like foolish or wise virgins had. The choice is yours. It would be dangerous if the Holy Spirit stops encouraging you because it means the Holy Spirit has stopped its work of conviction. There is a time limit like there’s a time that spirit strives and then stop and He won’t go beyond that.

Revelation 22:11, 12 says, “Whoever is evil must go on doing evil, and whoever is filthy must go on being filthy; whoever is good must go on doing good, and whoever is holy must go on being holy.”

 Genesis 6:3 says, “Then the Lord said, ‘I will not allow people to live forever; they are mortal. From now on they will live no longer than 120 years.”

4. Lights and colours

Leviticus 8:8 says, “He put the breastpiece on him and put the Urim and Thummim in it.”

Ezra 2:63 says, “The Jewish governor told them that they could not eat the food offered to God until there was a priest who could use the Urim and the Thummim.”

Revelation 4:3 says, “His face gleamed like such precious stones of jasper and carnelian, and all around the throne there was a rainbow and the colour of an emerald.”

Ezekiel 1:27-28 says, “The figure seemed to be shining like bronze in the middle of a fire. It shone all over with a bright light that had in it all the colours of the rainbow.”

John 10:10 says, “The thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy. I have come in order that you might have life—life in all its fullness.

John 11:26 says, “And those who live and believe in me will never die. Do you believe this?”

In heaven, there is a “Zoe” or real divine life.

That Zoe life can either grow or die if planted inside you like a seed. It must be nurtured until it breaks in and comes out of you. After that, it will undergo process:

a. Zoe life must fill your spirit

b. it must break and enter into your soul then you can walk in the realm. If this happens, you won’t entertain even an inch of doubt.

c. the flesh must be full of Zoe life. Then, you’ll overcome death.

“Levitation” is the power over the air can be a physical manifestation of the Holy Spirit.

Acts 1:9-10 says, “After saying this, He was taken up to heaven as they watched Him, and a cloud hid Him from their sight. They still had their eyes fixed on the sky as He went away, when two men dressed in white suddenly stood beside them and said, ‘Galileans, why are you standing there looking up at the sky? This Jesus, who was taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way that you saw Him go to heaven.”

Revelation 11:12 says, “Then the two prophets heard a loud voice say to them from heaven, ‘Come up here!’ As their enemies watched, they went up into heaven in a cloud.”

Acts 8:39 says, “When they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord took Philip away. The official did not see him again, but continued on his way, full of joy.”

Adam had power and authority for everything on the land, over the seas and waters like on how Jesus walks on water. But if you doubt like Peter had because you believe what you think, you’ll sink. The moment you allow your mind to think like that, so shall it be.

5. Fire (Malachi 3:2-3 says, “But who will be able to endure the say when He comes? Who will be able to survive when He appears? He will be like strong soap, like a fire that refines metal. He will come to judge like one who refines and purifies silver. As a metalworker refines silver and gold, so the Lord’s messenger will purify the priests, so that they will bring to the Lord the right kind of offering.”)

Isaraph (Hebrew) means refine; Habac (Hebrew) means fuller soon

In India, stamping, jumping and beating the clothes on the rocks scare the dirt.

The Holy Spirit refine our spirit, soul and body to make it clean. It’s necessary before your eyes can see the glory of God, if not; you can’t stand to see the glory of God.

Exodus 24: 15-18 says, “Moses went up to Mount Sinai, and a cloud covered it. The dazzling light of the Lord’s presence came down on the mountain. To the Israelites the light looked like a fire burning on top of the mountain. The cloud covered the mountain for six days, and on the seventh day the Lord called to Moses from the cloud. Moses went on up the mountain into the cloud. There he stayed for forty days and nights.”

Wait, you can’t say it’s too late for me to wait and say, “I have to go.” That’s why western churches are so far away from the glory of God and false prophets and teachers are sent in your land that tells you, “You name it, you claim it.” because you’re always rushing, you don’t have time to wait. You want instant! If ministers tell you to put your money here, your 500 there or your 1000 over there, believers would do because they are greedy for wanting a return. They’re greedy for short-cut wealth like in casino, have you ever seen a gambler say, “Don’t return the money that I gave.”? Certainly not. That’s the same casino spirit that comes into the church today. It’s not wrong to expect a return on giving but that should not be your motive on giving. When you give, your motive must be clean, without selfishness but with pure, clean heart. It must be pure offering without selfishness or wickedness. Give liberally with pure heart. Sometimes it pinches, right? But if you take the step and obey, it goes well. It doesn’t take obedience for you to do what you like to do. It’s not obeying, it’s simply doing. But it takes obedience what we do the things what we don’t like to do. Because you love God, then you obey.

READ: Daniel 10

If you want to have heaven encounter with God, you must wait.

6 days of preparation to enter into a realm to see the glory of God.

READ: Luke 9: 28-35

The Lord prayed so long for Him to be transfigured long enough to put those 3 apostles (Peter, James and John) to sleep. He is praying not for himself. He prayed for the 3 apostles to see the glory of God. The flesh can’t. It needs the light that sanctifies, refine and purify the 3 disciples making them fit to enter in the cloud. God told Moses, “No man can see me.” The flesh can’t so it needs cleansing, overcoming the work of one time grace that comes in an instant. First time is always a one-time grace that made you see how good God is. Then you must pursue which takes a long time. If you want to abide in it, you have to pursue it with all your heart, soul and all that is within you passionately.

The Holy Spirit and Fire prepares the church for the outpouring of the glory of God. Why is it necessary?

Matthew 13: 24-30 says, “Jesus told them another parable: ‘The kingdom of heaven is like this. A man sowed good seed in his field. One night, when everyone was asleep, an enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat and went away. When the plants grew and the heads of grain began to form, then the weeds showed up. The man’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir, it was good seed you sowed in your field; where did the weeds come from?’ ‘It was some enemy, who did this,’ he answered. ‘Do you want us to go and pull up the weeds?’ they asked him. ‘No,’ he answered, ‘because as you gather the weeds you might pull up some of the wheat along with them. Let the wheat and the weeds both grow together until harvest. Then I will tell the harvest workers to pull up the weeds first, tie them in bundles and burn them, and then to gather in the wheat and put it in my barn.’ ”

Matthew 36-42 says, “When Jesus had left the crowd and gone indoors, His disciples came to Him and said, ‘Tell us what the parable of the weeds in the field means.’ Jesus answered, ‘The man who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man; the field is the world; the good seed is the people who belong to the Kingdom; the weeds are the people who belong to the Evil One; and the enemy who sowed the weeds is the Devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvest workers are angels. Just as the weeds are gathered up and burned in the fire, so the same thing will happen at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send out his angels to gather up out of his Kingdom all those who cause people to sin and all other who do evil things, and they will throw them into the fiery furnace, where they will cry and gnash their teeth.”

 Revelation 3:1-2 says, “To the angel of the church in Sadis write: ‘This is the message from the one who has the seven spirits of God and the seven stars. I know what you are doing; I know that you have the reputation of being alive, even though you are dead! So wake up, and strengthen what you still have before it dies completely. For I find that what you have done is not yet perfect in the sight of my God.”

Revelation 2:12-13 says, “To the angel of the church in Pergamum write: ‘This is the message from the one who has the sharp two-edged sword. I know where you live, there where Satan has his throne. You are true to me, and you did not abandon your faith in me even during the time when Antipas, my faithful witness, was killed there where Satan lives.”

Revelation 2:1- 4 says, “To the angel of the church of Ephesus write: ‘This is the message from the one who holds the seven stars in his right hand and who walks among the seven gold lampstands. I know what you have done; I know how hard you have worked and how patient you have been. I know that you cannot tolerate evil people and that you have tested those who say they are apostles but are not,andhave found out that they are liars. You are patient, you have suffered for my sake, and you have not given up. But this is what I have against you: you do not love me now as you did at first.”

Lying spirits come for those hearts that are ready for deception. They thought God speaks to them and they hurry but it’s not. It’s because they want.

Matthew 3:12 says, “He has his winnowing shovel with him to thresh out all the grain. He will gather his wheat into his barn, but he will burn the chaff in a fire that never goes out.”
