THEME: PILLAR OF FIRE
“When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”
-At the day of Pentecost the disciples received the Holy Spirit and manifested different gifts. Jesus before Jesus ascended to heaven as evidenced in Acts chapter 1, He cautioned the disciples from leaving Jerusalem until they receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. He also taught that once they receive the Holy Spirit, they will obtain power and will become His witnesses in Jerusalem, Samaria and the ends of world. This is the power that we have received in us through the gift of the Holy Spirit. To perform many signs and wonders, witness Christ in all the world and have eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Let us also draw power from Christ like the woman who had an issue of blood, that dried up immediately.
The pillar of fire appeared in the Biblical times as it is evident today in our lives. The pillar that led the Israelites through the desert and offered them direction, comfort, provision, safety and security. The pillar of fire that Elijah called forth from heaven under the instructions of the angel of the Lord that destroyed the two army commanders and their fifty troops each. The pillar of fire that disciples intended to call forth upon the nation of Samaria when they did not welcome Jesus before His crucifixion (Luke 9:51-56). The pillar of fire that destroys every demonic altar, principality and power, and sets every captive free. The pillar of fire that offered Moses direction of purpose through his experiential encounter of the burning bush. The pillar of fire on the angel’s feet as will be exposed when the sixth trumpet will sound. This is a display of God’s eternal mercy, grace and holiness through His Son Jesus Christ. God is Holy and His presence is holy as we learn from the burning bush experience. Let us then be holy and remain righteous for this is His will. God has poured His Spirit upon us His children, that we may dream dreams and see visions, as these are the last days. The pillar of fire in us is God the Holy Spirit. Let us not loose hope in our faith in God for the one who raised Jesus from the dead lives in us and we shall live forever with Him. Let us hold fast our confidence in Him who gives us power to demonstrate many signs and wonders, proclaim His gospel, live in victory over diseases, premature death, principalities, powers and rulers that come to distrust our purposes in Christ and enjoy abundant life with Him now and forever. Amen
