Make Paul happy and be like him.

Make Paul happy and be like him.

Make Paul happy and be like him.
Philippians Chapter 2
1 If [there be] therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,
2 Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be like-minded, having the same love, [being] of one accord, of one mind.
3 [Let] nothing [be done] through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.

This friends was Paul the Apostles plea to his fellow Christians based at Philippi. To make Paul totally happy all they had to do was be like him! Just imagine Paul being full of God Almighty and teaching his fellow followers to be like Jesus, where they were good pupils, learnt well and become full of the love of Jesus Christ. Don’t be vain or selfish, I am, and this keeps me further away from Jesus than Paul and his true followers, I’m much colder as I walk along that narrow pathway that leads to glory, can I please sweet Jesus be warmer for you like Paul is. To be like Paul he tells us to be ‘low in mind’ or humble! Gee, I’m arrogant, please help me to help others be better than myself, give them the self-confidence and esteem to be on fire for Jesus, and then you can take a picture of me smiling and happy, standing in the shadow of Jesus. The saved will see the importance of living a life of selflessness where they will gladly be like Paul be like Jesus and humble and abase themselves as they go out into the world to save more and more lost souls. Make Paul happy and be of one mind, we do this friends through our obvious love for Jesus, that universal feeling of beautiful gratitude and love that we all feel equally as we worship Jesus Christ. Paul tells us when this happens, his joy is complete, heaven on earth. We have to please Paul, we have to please Jesus, we have to help save as many lost as we can.

The Devil is Among us.

The Devil is Among us.

Revelation 12

9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

Hello Friends,

This is a great scripture from the New Testament of the Holy Bible. Why is this? Well quite simply put, our home which is heaven, where god our father resides, no longer has the devil living there! Like verse 12:9 tells us that great dragon was cast out of heaven by God. So we need to be aware friends that the devil is now resident with us on this planet. The devil keeps entering into mankind, however like in the days of the early disciples we continue to defeat Satan by the life death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, like Rev 12:11 shows us above. So through our constant struggles we encounter on our planet earth, we have confidence knowing that by following the advice of Jesus and his disciples we can keep ‘side-stepping’ the devil, leading a fulfilling and rewarding life, following Jesus Christ everyday of our lives, constantly like the air that we breathe, our love and worship of Jesus is similar also. Did the devil ever come into your life? He’s very powerful, he was up there with God almighty once. He probably has influenced you. Through prayer to God through his son Jesus, you can find out precisely how he ‘duped you’. Next time though you will be ready for him. The folks that don’t know Jesus are continually ravaged by the devil, until they are spiritually dead and the devil just casts them aside, even worthless to Satan! Physically vomiting the devil out of your belly if this was possible, like being sick of some disagreeable food isn’t necessary. We have to vomit him out of our soul! He’s deceived us, and still does. See verse 9. He gets everybody in the world. However, once we are made aware of his presence, we can cast him out of our souls like God cast him out of heaven. You know the devil is very powerful but crafty and lazy too. He will go for the easy prey before tackling us. The easy prey doesn’t have Jesus in their lives! Let’s keep throwing God’s word over the devil daily friends. Let’s weaken his resolve. Let’s sink him into the abyss if we can.

Wonderful Works of God

Wonderful Works of God

The Day of Pentecost

Acts 2:11…Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God…(KJV)

Hello Friends, I would just like to briefly talk about this passage ‘the day of Pentecost’ and how this day some two thousand years ago is very similar if not identical to nowadays, the only difference is the population of the world is something close to seven billion inhabitants, where in Jesus day only a fraction! 

So here we have the twelve disciples of Jesus, the Holy Spirit has descended on them, and entered into their souls, filling them with the wisdom of God almighty and the love of Jesus Christ, giving them the ability to start talking or preach the gospel in different languages, where the example above shows how Cretes and Arabians could understand what the disciples were saying as their languages was being spoken for the first time.

I think that as the disciples received those tongues of fire and as soon as the listeners heard for the first time their language being spoken, it awakened them like someone throwing a bucket of cold water over you.

works-of-god-3

What a shock to the system! A wonderful shock.

This is happening nowadays friends, through the numerous bible translations of many hundreds if not thousands of languages, some very small nation somewhere, perhaps in the far reaches of Africa, all of a sudden understanding the wonderful teachings of Jesus Christ, looking up to the heavens in complete amazement, feeling like being drenched in the beautiful cold water like a waterfall of God almighty. Truly breathtaking.

works-of-god-2

Whole villages being introduced to Jesus in their tongue all of a sudden becoming ‘on fire’ for more of God’s truth!

We need more people, like me and you, to help these people, hear for the first time about the wonderful works of God. Also folks, when the boots on the other foot our own people who have ‘overheard too much’ the word of God in their lifetime becoming immune to its wonderful meaning. You know friends it’s like the news on our media, after we have seen shock horror events like earthquakes, the first time we were devastated perhaps feeling helpless for the victims, and then years down the line we hear on the news about another earthquake, even on our own doorstep and our urgency and emotional response just isn’t the same, in one ear and through the other. How can we help those people who have lost their spiritual senses hear Jesus. It’s like the drugs don’t work anymore for them, and any more will just poison their system. It comes down to yourself, how can you help them to hear Jesus, or are they a lost cause, you have to answer that question yourself!

We can really help the world those seven billion people receive those Pentecost tongues of fire. Straightaway, all of those languages which as yet haven’t had the Holy Bible translated into their language, where as soon as it has, then that will be their ‘Day of Pentecost’. What a fantastic treasure they will find, not digging for treasure in the ground, but receiving the precious word of God to help those race of people ‘spread the gospel’.

So thank you Jesus for ‘the Day of Pentecost’, thank you for the printing press, thank you for computer technology, where even the illiterate can just ‘listen’ the word of God, Jesus’ sweet teachings, now and forever more. Amen.

Bill,budding trees and Jesus

Bill,budding trees and Jesus

Hello Friends,

I wrote this short story along with a few others about five years ago now. ‘A series of Bill trying to find Jesus’. Hope you enjoy it!

budding-trees-6

Bill, budding trees and Jesus

The summer wind blew in England, and the Peacock butterfly landed on the garden shovel which was protruding from the garden’s soil. Bill sat down with a lady and her elderly mother who she cared for, under a budding tree, the picnic hamper placed neatly on the multicoloured blanket. Bill had just earlier run to her aid as she stumbled and nearly fell on the ground as she tried to close her daughter’s car door. The kindness that the daughter showed Bill seemed to envelope the budding tree along with the three of us with the Holy Spirit and Jesus was just beyond the tree watching, like a shepherd watching his lambs make their first steps in the field. They seemed to be a very quiet couple, and Bill was pleasantly surprised to see a copy of the Holy Bible inside the hamper basket.

budding-trees-5

Baked bread of Jesus.
The crusty bread smelt beautiful as the old lady spread best butter on a slice, and it had just obviously been baked as Bill’s mouth began to water. Jesus is the bread of life Bill thought, and the Holy Spirit was certainly comforting the three of them. Bill was aware that during the Exodus of Moses’ time the ‘children of god’ the Israelites ate unleavened bread, or put another way it was baked without yeast. When the good seed which was ground to flour was risen with yeast, the yeast is symbolic of ungodly teachings. Bill knew it was ok to eat this beautiful freshly baked bread; he then quickly glanced at the old lady’s bible, and concluded that this bread had been raised with the word of god’s yeast. The bees hummed in the budding tree above, and the three of them sat in peace and tranquility, and Bill felt the reassuring smile of Jesus.

budding-trees-4

Demons ‘get out’.
Bill took a chance with the nice couple and spoke about his past problems and how demons controlled his life. He took out his electric bible and explained how god leads him to specific verses in the bible, words of god which counters the devil in him. Jesus led Bill to first John chapter three verse eight and proceeded to read this out to the daughter and mother…He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Bill explained that Jesus’ love cast the devil out of him. Bill lived a diabolical adulterous life. He gently looked up and smiled at the pair who were obviously by their kind looks, sympathetic towards Bill. Bill had nearly finished his glass of lemonade, and watched a bee land on top of the glass looking for the sticky sugar substance. “So that’s how Jesus came into my life. Would you like to share any testimonies?” The mother took a deep breath and began to speak. On one beautiful spring day as she took her golden retriever for a walk, she read a story in a magazine about Adam and Eve, and how Eve was duped by the snake into becoming disobedient to god our father. She had just come of age, and realised that the devil had been deceiving her in a variety of ways, one of them being her mistaken love for her fiance who was cheating on their relationship with another woman, and became sexually promiscuous and immoral. He just used her, and a tear rolled down the elderly mother’s cheek. She vowed to love Jesus from the day she read that biblical truth inside that magazine as she sat on a bench near to that summer budding tree similar to the one they were sitting under now. Jesus helped her to cope with the loss of her first love, and in times of temptation always recalled how Eve was deceived, and how she lost paradise through disobeying god. She recalled how the auctioneer rapped the gavel on his podium and said, “The figurine of Jesus and the lamb across his shoulders is sold to the lady with the lemon coloured top.” As she carried her Jesus away, spoke to a nice gentleman, who later became her husband and late father of her daughter who shed a tear also. His first words were, “That’s a beautiful figurine of Jesus, I nearly brought it myself.” The elderly mother sighed as she remembered his charm and Jesus in her hands.

budding-trees-3

Duty to care for vulnerable.
As the three of them sat, picnicked and reminisced, Bill made a silent prayer of thanks to Jesus, and listened for some divine response from god. The young daughter said a few words after her mother had said her testimony, and made it clear that she thought it was her duty to look after her mother in her time of old age and frailty. Bill quickly checked his electric bible for the word ‘duty’ and its verse and was led to Luke chapter seventeen verse ten, and after reading the passage said, “After we have done our duty whatever that maybe it’s important not to want or expect payment for our work or services. It’s best to view it more like a labour of love.” Bill then read out the above verse which read :- So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, we are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do…”I do count my blessings everyday,” said the daughter. Bill dabbed his handkerchief around his forehead has the summer heat caused him to perspire. He was offered some cool lemonade which came out of a flask that had ice cubes in it as well. Bill sipped the freezing cold fizzy drink, and looked at the blossoms on the tree which the bees buzzed around. Bill in a state of comfort and joy said, “The first commandment of god is to love god with all of your heart, mind and soul. That really is our major duty, and expect to be unprofitable servants for doing so. Do it for free in other words, love our lord god for free, an unconditional love. When people say I don’t love you anymore because of not meeting a certain condition, then it’s like the apostles saying to Jesus we want you to pay us for carrying out your father’s commandments. As soon as they say that it ceases being a labour of love and becomes a labour of paid work. As soon as the money stops it’s like the apostles stopped working for Jesus and left him. So from the above verse god tells his people to say, we are unprofitable people we have only done god’s will. We work for free.” The two ladies seemed very interested and pleased to listen to Bill’s beliefs and philosophy’s. The sun at midday was high in the sky.

christian-winning-nails

Nails in Jesus. 

Bill seemed at ease during the picnic and the women were so welcoming that it was easy for Bill to speak about his past problems and later how Jesus saved his soul from the self destruct button. The final nail was nearly hammered into his coffin Bill said, then his divorce from his wife seemed to prevent that nail being hammered in. The old lady poured Bill a cup of warm tea from the hamper’s flask, and looked on in sympathy as Bill continued. “It all happened very naturally and quite quickly where I became close to Jesus day by day, hour by hour and minute by minute.” The daughter said, “Yes, my encounter with Jesus came from the Jesus hymns we sang at school. The nails that went through his hands and feet affected me as a child, where the crucifix of Jesus on the cross and the blood coming from the nails made me weep.” She was very sorry in her attitude and sniffed as a few tears came down her face, the biscuit still being chewed in her mouth. “It was very nice to be able to talk to someone like yourself Bill about Jesus, and how he influenced yours as well as our lives,” said the daughter. The wind stirred the tree tops and the budding tree they were sitting under seemed to make a gentle soothing lullaby sound for the three of them as they shared their testimonies and united in fellowship’s brotherly love. They all went quiet as they listened to a song thrush high in the branches and were happy for the break in the conversation to reflect on what had been said. The north wind blew gently causing the red tulips to sway with the green grass in their background. Bill was the first to talk again, and as he closed his eyes said a prayer, “Dear Jesus, thank you for giving your love to these two lovely ladies and myself today, in this beautiful garden which is only as close to Eden when your heart intertwines with our souls. Please give us the strength of the Holy Spirit in order for us to live for you and our fellow-man for now and eternity, Amen.” The two ladies responded with Amen also. The daughter suggested they all go for a gentle walk in the nearby meadow which she knew quite well as a child, and her mother agreed as she seemed to be very energetic and full of enthusiasm for life after the lovely food and conversation.

budding-trees-2
Genesis
As they walked along the river side, the sun shone brightly and the temperature was a hot twenty-five degrees centigrade. The pathway was good and strong where the elderly mother held onto her daughter’s arm. The cattle in the field came close to the pathway which was fenced and looked at the three of them and carried on munching the green grass. The frail old woman said, “When I talk about Christianity and Jesus I like to start right at the beginning of the Holy bible, the book of Genesis. I like to talk about Adam and Eve, then Noah and the ark.” Bill agreed that was a very good place to start, and also added the Gospels are a good place to start in the New testament as well, with the birth of Jesus, the cross and resurrection. The budding tree they picnicked under looked like a small shrub in the distance, and Bill focused the conversation on the book of Genesis for a while. He listened for Jesus after making a silent prayer to him. “Oh look at the lovely butterflies,” said the elderly lady. Bill heard Jesus say ‘give’, which had such a large variety of meanings in different situations. Through Bill’s electric bible he was led to the book of Genesis, chapter two verse twenty which read… And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him… Bill said to the elderly lady, “It was Adam that named this beautiful insect, and god gave Eve to him to help him do these things.” The butterfly opened and closed its wings and fluttered onto a daffodil. The yellow of the blossom, and the predominantly red of the insect, the sun making these two primary colours so vivid and bright. “Yes, Adam and Eve became one flesh.” The light of god flooded through the budding trees as Jesus’ love filled all three of these children of god. Their souls were destined for heaven on the ‘day of judgement’. “I wonder if the butterflies will go to heaven?” enquired the daughter. Bill didn’t say anything but nodded and smiled. “If your heaven has butterflies in it then butterflies there will be in heaven,” said Bill, and all three were walking very happily in god’s paradise.

budding-trees-7

Bitter
Bill heard Jesus talk to him, urging him to receive grace and hospitality from the two ladies by explaining to them some of the things that made him bitter in his past lifestyle. “I drank and was adulterous,” he said as he looked down at the grass. “I was proud and didn’t care about people,” he continued. After a brief pause in the conversation the daughter said, “It sounds like you had some sort of boa constrictor wrapped around you; this would be enough to make anyone bitter.” She was right, and Bill felt his neck like he was being strangled when he recalled some of the adulterous partners his wife had relations with. He held his face in his hands, “It’s all in the past now.” Bill had denied Jesus as well as his fellow-man back then and recalled Peter from the book of Luke chapter twenty-two verse sixty-two which read…And Peter went out, and wept bitterly. This is what Peter did when he denied Jesus three times. Bill felt he denied everyone and everything all his life. “I don’t deny Jesus anymore now I’ve found his love.” As the budding trees blossom so do believers in Jesus, their spiritual garden becomes lovely. Yes, life was as sweet as honey now he had discovered god.

budding-trees-8

Jesus is my doctor

The daughter recalled past worries and concerns when her mother was close to death at one point and the doctor rushed her into hospital with a suspected cardiac arrest. It was sitting next to her bed waiting for her mother to recover from keyhole heart surgery that she picked up, thumbed through and read a few passages from the Gideon’s bible. She recalls looking at the bible verses which came under despair, and Bill helped by referring to ‘despair’ verses in his electric bible. “Yes dear, Paul the apostle said the following from second Corinthians chapter four verse eight which read,”…We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair…” I imagine you became strong like Paul did when trouble and persecution faced him,” said Bill. “Well I was very baffled, ‘all at sea’ also about what was happening to my mother, and the doctor confused me even more regarding the cause of the heart attack. As the doctor spoke to me I was reading the bible, and at that moment I said to myself Jesus is my doctor, he will provide me with all answers. I remember smiling at the doctor and feeling at complete ease.” The daughter looked at her mother and reassuringly held her hand. The countryside felt so peaceful and private on that beautiful summer’s day, and only the birds and bees could hear us; god sent a warm breeze over the three of them with a fresh fragrance of freshly cut grass; it was so sweet, and Bill pictured the ‘Garden of Eden’.
Dull in senses
Bill and the two ladies saw a man in the distance who looked wobbly on his legs. Bill had ardiac arrest. It was sitting next to her bed waiting for her mother to recover from keyhole heart surgery that she picked up, thumbed through and read a few passages from the Gideon’s bible. She been there in the past, walking around drunk. As they got closer he looked at his watch and squinted. He was drunk alright, and Bill could see a small bottle of brandy sticking out of his jacket. The drunk man muttered something towards the threesome, and although no one knew what he wanted Bill replied with a sympathy recalling his drunken past, and trying to unsuccessfully flag a taxi down. “Can we help you in any way sir?” Bill politely said. He heard Jesus say ‘dull’, the drunk was totally dull in his senses. Bill checked his electric bible to see what god had to say about dullness. It was from Matthew chapter thirteen verse fifteen, the parable of the sower. This verse read…For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them…The drunk man uttered something that didn’t make sense, “Sir,” Bill said, “I use to drink alcohol like yourself, and I was later saved by the lord Jesus, where I am now teetotal and leading a clean godly life. You can to Sir, try your best and give up the booze.” Damn you!” he shouted at the three of them, “I’ll ask someone else for the time,” and he staggered away. Bill said, “He has to find the answer himself. Perhaps god wants to keep him in this state for a better chance of the gospel being proclaimed. He could still make it to heaven if he sincerely lets Jesus into his heart and repents.

It was an enjoyable day overall, and the country walk ended at the two ladies car. Bill exchanged kisses, and helped the elderly lady put on her seat belt. They all exchanged names and contact details, and Bill waved wishing them a safe journey with the love of Jesus. The budding trees above Bill’s head seemed to wave goodbye themselves in the breeze, and the sun began to sink at the back of them, sending through the branches beams of light which lit up the back of Bill’s head. Never had Bill in his entire life felt so peaceful as he did on that summer’s day. Bill prayed a silent prayer to Jesus, thanking him for a glorious day, and wishing his fellow-man, the drunk being foremost in his thoughts, all the happiness in the world and the gift of finding the life of Jesus to attain this happiness. Bill walked along the country road. He nimbly walked towards the railway station and with just half a mile to go briskly walked to increase his heart rate for good exercise. The sun began to sink below the horizon, and the little railway station was lit up with a golden reflection. The sound of the train’s electric motor gently eased up as the train stopped, and Bill continued his journey with Jesus.

We are God’s remnant, we follow Jesus

We are God’s remnant, we follow Jesus

Romans 11:5…Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace…(KJV)

This is very very good news for us friends. We are saved by the grace of God. So in layman’s terms, there are two groups of people, the saved and the unsaved, the elect and the unelected. The elect I believe aren’t very many people, the majority are the unsaved. There is still hope for them to get into the ‘elects team’ they need Jesus Christ really though to give them any chance. Grace is amazing. It can be difficult to explain as well. But the Israelites killed the prophets over the centuries, broke down God’s altars and hunted Elijah. I see God as folding his arms as he looks at the people, putting his hand on that lever, when pushed the trap door opens and down they fall into the abyss. He should do this for everyone. This is how grace works. He is just about to push that trapdoor lever, and he will for a lot on the Day of Judgement’ when he stops, as he catches sight of his son Jesus, standing next to you. You are saved by grace. You are one of God’s elect. The none elect, the people unfaithful to him, God

…Romans 11:8…(According as it is written God has given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day…(KJV)

gods-remnant-3

So the unfaithful out there are living in a spiritually handicapped way because of how God deals with the world until the day of judgement, where without Jesus, without a shadow of a doubt, that trap door lever will be pushed. Until then living spiritually dead.

gods-remnant-4

It’s impossible for these people to RIP without Jesus, they need the grace of God to see Jesus by their sides, and pronounce a verdict of INNOCENT, into GLORY you will go, now and forever.

Incidently, when Nebuchadnezzar defeated the Israelites and took them into captivity who did he leave behind? The weakest of the weak out of the Israelites. What was their job. Tending to the vines and keeping the land of milk and honey alive. Who do these weakest of the weak represent? I believe these people are God’s elect. Nebuchadnezzar couldn’t be bothered to take them to Babylon into slavery. (this is just my belief though folks). So God has a plan to protect Jesus’ flock!

gods-remnant-5

God in a way puts a moat around Jesus’ sheep, like being inside the sheep pen, safe from ravening wolves

gods-remnant-6

that can’t get into the pen! So like the scriptures teaches us…the weak will be raised…the proud will be abased…the elect will be raised (to heaven)…the arrogant will be abased (to hell)…the elect will be free, the unfaithful will be put in bondage. And this will be done through the Grace of God, where he is very very merciful.

So dear Jesus thank you for giving us our spiritual senses so that we can see you and feel love for you and one another, and may we receive the loving grace of your father now and forever more. Amen,

Selling watches, vases, money, you name it in heaven

Selling watches, vases, money, you name it in heaven

Jesus clears the Temple

selling-in-heaven2

John 2:16…And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my father’s house a house of merchandise…(KJV)

How the economy can get intertwined with heaven in such a way that the vendors would set up their stall in a church if they could!

Obviously this is wrong friends, and Jesus shows us this when he chased everyone out of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem who were there solely to sell and make a profit. I’ve seen people in the market place, especially outdoor ones in the UK, and some of them to say the least aren’t that pleasant when it comes to buying and selling goods. Handing over notes and picking up in return some item they have bought. Some arguments breaking outing between sellers and who has the best pitches, so market police are generally close at hand and life continues. Where am I going with this. Well I suppose if people are prepared to trade inside a holy place or on holy ground they may think they will set up their pitch some place in heaven if in their mind they think they may make it to heaven ultimately. If this crazy idea was possible, which I’m sure it isn’t I reckon Jesus would run in his father’s house and do exactly the same thing. GET OUT!

Simply put there is a time and a place for everything, especially trade, and it’s a no no to sell and make a profit on Holy ground, Jesus makes this quite clear to his believers.

I believe there are a lot of people who would even in this day sell merchandise in a holy place if they could, so it’s important that selling stuff for economic reasons should be kept separate from anything divine, or else not only will you have the wrath of God on your back, but the very very rare anger of Jesus Christ also.

selling-in-heaven-3

How many people would accept a Rolex watch if offered one in a church, at a very good price? Temptation! Lone sharks giving you a loan while you are both kneeling at the altar? Does this sort of thing go on? I reckon it did in Jesus’ day.

We are really lucky to have Jesus to remind us what is right and wrong when it comes to selling, and making your soul a ‘holy of holies’ should be all good Christians objective. It can be done through the love of Jesus, we are really lucky don’t you think friends.

Don’t forget it’s a dangerous world we live in where money is concerned and Jesus ultimately had nails driven through him for sins that WE committed.

So dear Jesus may you always keep your father’s temple clean and pure and free from abusive money rackets, and help us to keep the temple of our souls beautiful, pure and clean, now and forever more Amen.

On fire for God

On fire for God

Acts 2:3 KJV
And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.

Praise the Lord. This is a well used Pentecostal saying, yet it is so so true. As soon as the Holy Spirit enters our souls, the demons, rubbish, sin everything that is impure leaves us, very similar to the steel making furnace process, where impurities float to the top of the liquid metal leaving, pure metal, gold whatever at the bottom, ready to be poured into ingots. Our souls a furnace, well for a while anyway, and when those tongues of fire have purged our soul, just a nice cooled down block of gold remains. Our personal treasure.


That ruggedness within our souls gone forever, that sin harassed out by God’s fire.

I sometimes open the door to my soul on purpose and sin doesn’t always rush in now. There’s easier prey I guess. A lot of the burning stuff in my soul has been burnt out, and it hurts like hell pardon the pun to begin with. Now it’s just the odd little grass fire that does me good, prepares the soil so to speak.

So thank you Jesus for those curling tongues of fire which cleanse us and help us spread the Gospel. In your sweet precious name. Amen.
