The LORD GOD Almighty Highly exalts the Holy Spirit above Himself as Jesus said in Mark 3:29, whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven. Jesus said anyone who blasphemes against God or Jesus is forgiven but against the Holy Ghost shall never receive forgiveness. So whoever speaks evil in regard to the Holy Spirit has no forgiveness even in this life and in the age to come. Christ gave this awful warning against speaking such dangerous words. “Truly, I say to you, all sins will be forgiven the sons of men in whatever is done but whoever does against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven. In Matthew 12:32 Jesus makes His meaning more precise, “Whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven either in this age or in the eternal life. The Bible describes God as a Consuming Fire in Hebrews 12:29. God’s Holy Spirit Fire Power appears as symbol of God’s Presence. Jesus confirmed the Holy Spirit fire power will indeed be given as stated above after He completes His ministry on earth.
The Holy Spirit Fire Power was predicted by John the Baptist that Jesus will baptise believers with Holy Spirit Fire Power in Matthew 3:11. So this promise of the Holy Spirit Fire Power was granted on Pentecost day to the early church. He appeared as tongues of fire resting on all the believers filled with the Holy Spirit. They began to speak in other tongues as the Holy Spirit enabled them to do so in Acts 2:3-4. The Holy Spirit Fire Power shows a wonderful picture of the work of God’s Holy Spirit. The Spirit is like a fire in at least three ways: He brings God’s presence, God’s passion, and God’s purity. The Holy Spirit is the Presence of God living in the heart of the believer in Romans 8:9. God’s Holy Spirit fire power engulfs the Christian believer with God’s Divine Gift inextinguishable eternally. As demonstrated in the New Testament, the Holy Spirit is always associated with fire of God.
The Holy Spirit’s Power baptised with Holy Spirit fire or Holy Ghost fire. The baptism of Holy Ghost fire is God’s powerful life giving soul-changing experience strengthens and establishes trust and confidence in God. All power in heaven and earth is given unto Jesus Christ over all the power of the enemy. So Jesus reassures believes He will imbue them with the same source of power from God to do the works of God, to teach and preach in Jesus Name. The miracle power will move greater and greater as the fire of the Holy Spirit burns in believers to have the same unity of spirit and one accord to share the Gospel of Christ, preach until we are in one mind and one. Jesus said those who believe in Him will do greater works because they have more time on earth than His 3 and 1/2 years ministry. The Holy Spirit Fire of God is the manifestation of the power of God through the Holy Spirit. God gives the Holy Spirit without measure to build Gods Kingdom to destroy all the works of the devil in Jesus Name.
God reveals His Presence in the burning bush in Exodus 3:2, His Shekinah Glory in Exodus 14:19; Numbers 9:14-15, Ezekiel 1-4 in visions. Fire is used as God’s weapon of judgement in Numbers 11:1, 3; 2 Kings 1:10, 12 or demonstrate Signs of God’s Power in Judges 13:20; 1 Kings 18:38. God’s fire is important as called down by Elijah on the altar of burnt offering to prove the Power of God. God’s fire was a divine gift of God in Leviticus 9:24. God charged the priests to keep His fire lighted eternally in Leviticus 6:13 acceptable in Leviticus 10:1-2 for Old Testament sacrifices. In the New Testament, the altar serves as a picture of commitment to God. Believers in Jesus Christ are called upon to offer our bodies as living sacrifices in Romans 12:1. The Holy spirit did not end with the disciples and apostles. The Holy Spirit nurtures the word of God by leading into all to truth of God and comforts. The Holy Spirit motivates and encourages to feed the believer as spiritual soul food to withstand in life.
The Holy spirit gives assurance of the more sure word of testimony of the Spirit of God in Christ in us as a witness within. God’s truth empowers to speak into the deepest innermost inward hearts by the spiritual power of the Holy Ghost. This inward spiritual power of the Holy Ghost is highly valued and greatly exalted with reverence not to grieve Him. The Holy Ghost has fire power over people’s hearts. Every stony heart is crushed by the powerful hammer of God’s Holy Spirit. So transforms minds and renews hearts affected. In the Old Testament, God showed His presence to the Israelites by overspreading the tabernacle with fire in Numbers 9:14-15. This fiery presence provided light and guidance in Numbers 9:17-23. In the New Testament, God guides and comforts His children with the Holy Spirit living in our bodies as God’s tabernacle temple of God in 2 Corinthians 5:1; 6:16.
The Holy Spirit creates the passion of God in our hearts. After the two travelling disciples talk with the resurrected Jesus, they describe their hearts as burning within us in Luke 24:32. After the apostles receive the Spirit at Pentecost, they have a passion that lasts a lifetime and impels them to speak the word of God boldly in Acts 4:31. The same power which raised Jesus Christ from the dead, shall also quicken your mortal bodies. The power of the resurrection is one of the finest proofs of the works of the Holy Spirit. So friends of Christ are highly blessed by the same holy Spirit power to raise the dead. The Holy Spirit produces purity of God in our lives and gives boldness to preach, teach, do the works of God and testify of the goodness of God in the land of the living. The Holy Ghost is poured out daily in wonderful manner to keep the believer rooted and grounded in Christ the true branch.
God’s purpose is to purify us in Titus 2:14. The Holy Spirit is God’s agent of sanctification in 1 Corinthians 6:11; 2 Thessalonians 2:13; 1 Peter 1:2.As the silversmith uses fire to purge the dross from the precious metal, so God uses the Spirit to remove our sin from us in Psalm 66:10; Proverbs 17:3. His fire cleanses and refines. the Holy Spirit brings the warm flames of joy, peace, within for excellent quality service. The Spirit is very powerful so equips the Christian to trust the power of God to carry into heaven in rapture or passing. The Holy Spirit is represented by symbols of water, anointing, fire, cloud and light, the seal of God unto Holiness, the Hand of God, The finger of God, dove, wind, tongues of fire seen here. God decides to use appropriate symbol desired on various occasions.
There are diversities of operations of the Holy Spirit according to God’s plans and purposes for each one. The diversified operations consist of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on those who ask, believe, and receive. God’s Holy Spirit keeps ministers aflame to continually preach by the grace of God. The Holy Spirit gives hope, breakthrough, increase, victory to stand strong in the power of the Lord. So receive the fresh era pouring out of the Spirit even now. The Holy Spirit may impact a believer to laugh, cry with joy, fall under the power of God, feel a special anointing or overwhelmed by the Grace of God. The Holy Spirit teaches and helps believers to understand knowledge of God to increase in wisdom of the Lord God. The Holy Spirit is covering the earth as the waters covers the surfaces of the great deep. God’s Kingdom has come within your heart so God’s Will is done on earth as it is in heaven. The Holy Spirit connects for intimacy with God so ask God to fill you with the Holy Spirit to fill and lead you by God’s Power in Jesus Name.
