TOPIC: Receiving Fresh Fire
(Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 11 November 2018)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: 1 Kings 18:36-39
MEMORY VERSE: “For with God nothing shall be impossible.” – Luke 1:37
For those of us in Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries (MFM), the issue of fire is not new, but we frequently need to remind ourselves of the importance of fresh fire in our lives as much as possible. Fresh fire is spiritual and divine. It is supernatural. Divine fire is an anointing that the enemy cannot withstand. When a Christian receives it, he or she becomes untouchable. When the totality of a person’s life is baptised with the Holy Ghost fire, that life will surely experience victory in all areas of endeavour. The Christian becomes a winner in the battles of life. Therefore, to live a victorious Christian life, one cannot do without fresh anointing. It is sometimes the weapon which God has freely given Christians to enable us go through life successfully.
The fire is needed for personal revival; it is needed to fight the battles of life, and it is needed for those who want to fulfil their destiny. For these reasons, we can conclude that fire is needed at all times. There was a man of God who was praying for the deliverance of an individual and the demon, which possessed that person, began to harass the man of God. The demon emphatically told the man of God that it would not leave. The man of God became afraid and called on his Senior Pastor. When the Senior Pastor arrived, he commanded the demon to come out of the individual and again the demon said no. The demon said it did not know where to go. The Senior Pastor then offered the demon his own body and the demon screamed, “O fe pa mi” (you want to kill me?). This means there was an anointing of fire inside the Senior Pastor. The demon saw it and became afraid. Finally, the Senior Pastor drove the demon out from that individual.
In the Fire Scripture, Prophet Elijah demonstrated the raw power of God, which manifested as fresh fire. Beloved, you need the fire.
Whenever there is no fire in someone’s life, fear comes in; when the fire flickers, demons know and can easily take possession of the person. But when the level of fire increases, it will be victory all the way. The shortest route to your testimony is to pray for fresh fire to descend into your life. God dwells in the midst of fire and you are enveloped with God’s presence. Today, make up your mind to tap abundantly into the fire of God and be filled with the Holy Ghost. Ask for fresh fire always. Do not miss any service because in every church service you attend there is a level of fire you can tap into and when you do not attend, you begin to lose the fire gradually. Do you have any problem challenging your God? Today marks its end if only you can begin to tap enough of this fire. Arise and ask for fresh fire. As one song writer says: “Inside me, outside me, around me, is the Holy Ghost fire.”
THE MORE OF GOD’S FIRE YOU HAVE, THE MORE OF GOD YOU WILL MANIFEST, AND WITHOUT FIRE, A CHRISTIAN IS LIKE A SOLDIER AT THE WAR-FRONT IN CAMOUFLAGE WITHOUT WEAPON.
Power to call down fire that will disgrace the enemies of God after the order of Elijah shall come upon your life.
1. O Lord my Father, send your axe of fire to the foundation of my life, in the name of Jesus.
2. Fire of Holy Ghost, cleanse every organ in my body, in the name of Jesus.
3. Holy Ghost, breathe on me now and on all the works of my hand for breakthrough, in the name of Jesus.
4. Holy Ghost fire, ignite me to the glory of God, in the name of Jesus.
5. Anointing fire of the Holy Ghost, break every yoke of backwardness in my life, in the name of Jesus.
6. Holy Ghost fire, flow into every department of my life for total purging and cleansing, in the name of Jesus.
7. Holy Ghost fire, empower me and make me a terror against the kingdom of darkness, in the name of Jesus.
