TOPIC: THE NECESSITY OF SPIRITUAL FIRE
SCRIPTURE: Then the king sent unto him a captain of fifty with his fifty. And he went up to him:… And Elijah answered and said to the captain of fifty, If I be a man of God, then let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And there came down fire from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty. 2 Kings 1:9-10
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Spiritual fire is the amplifier of voice.
From our anchor Scripture, we see that Elijah was a man on fire who could speak to any king on behalf of Heaven. In Bible days, there were people who spoke and determined the direction of a whole nation.
But today, we have very few Christians who can speak to our leaders or address the ills in our society. Why is it that people in positions of leadership, especially in politics do not call for a pastor or a child of God to find out his opinion about any step they want to take? It is because of the bankruptcy of spiritual fire! The shortage of fire is why the voices of many Christians are not heard by authorities, principalities or powers.
The condition of our generation needs voices like that of Elijah that will compel the attention of our generation to God. We do not need voices that are apologetic or voices begging for favour from people in power.
The acquisition of spiritual fire is a necessity because it guarantees audacity and authority. Spiritual Fire is the amplifier of voice. A person who is on fire is authorized to speak on behalf of Heaven.
Remember this: Spiritual fire is the amplifier of voice.
