Prophetic Insight: He is Coming to You as Fire

Have you ever prayed, ‘Lord, show me Your glory’, or asked for more of God’s fire?

There are times when God comes softly, and there are times He comes as Fire. And I believe now is one of those times, for many of us who have been hungering for Him—a time when He says:

‘Beloved, this is what you asked for, when you earnestly desired Me and craved My glory and brightness. You called for My fire.’

And you see Jesus as you have never seen Him before.

The Apostle John was stunned, as he encountered Him like this:

‘The hair on his head was white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace…His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance.’ (Rev 1:14,16, NIV)


What does Love look like?

Because God loves you and because He values you as a priceless treasure—more than gold, silver or precious jewels—there are times when He will draw near to you with His fire.

God’s fire speaks of His Presence and His glory. His love, His holiness. Fire speaks of Who He is.

‘…our God is a consuming fire.’ (Heb 12:29)

The Prophet Malachi wrote:

“But who will be able to endure it when he comes? Who will be able to stand and face him when he appears? For he will be like a blazing fire that refines metal, or like a strong soap that bleaches clothes. He will sit like a refiner of silver, burning away the dross. He will purify the Levites, refining them like gold and silver, so that they may once again offer acceptable sacrifices to the Lord.” (Mal 3:2-3, NLT)

To love God is to honor and welcome Him as the One Who is many things to us. He is Saviour, Healer, Shepherd, King, Prince of Peace.

  • He is also Consuming Fire

In this moment of revelation, we have a choice. Will we give Him the desire of His heart, or draw back?

Will we yield to the temptation to keep something from His holiness?

Because His fire scorches that which is unholy. The fire of His holiness consumes sin and self-will, but offers in its place, wealth beyond imagining:

Intimacy with the Beloved.

Oh, how He wants you.

‘Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame.’ (Song of Songs 8:6 NIV)


The Invitation

There is a choice; one Jesus will not make on our behalf. It is a decision only we can make.

‘In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for special purposes and some for common use.
Those who cleanse themselves…will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.’
(2 Tim 2:20-21, NIV)

  • ‘Those who cleanse themselves.’

The opportunity to make an offering of your all to Him—to present yourself to His fire—yields unlimited possibilities.

It is time for consecration:

  • To dedicate your heart, mind, body and whole life to Him
  • To allow the Holy Spirit to put His finger on whatever aspect of your life and your will He pleases, to bring adjustment

Gently, and yet relentlessly, your Father reveals the work that needs to be done.

It is His offer of supreme grace.

In that place of raw honesty, where nothing hides, you yield the soul attitudes that have dampened your joy, and the pain and that history to Him.

In His love, He pulls you into His fire and His purging flame burns up what is not of Him.

Mercy prevails, removing all shame.

You discover a greater intimacy with Him than you have known before.


The Fire Burns in You

Jesus speaks to His lukewarm church, echoing the words of the Prophet Malachi. 

  • He comes to us as the Refiner with fire; the Heavenly Launderer (Mal 3:2-3), saying:

‘I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.’ (Revelation 3:18, NIV)

As we respond, He purges, He fills, He replenishes.

The fire that cleanses the impurities now causes the vessel—you—to glow with a Heavenly brightness.

The same fire that removes what has bound you, now burns in you.

It is a fire of His holiness. What once hurt and defiled you, has been removed. And in its place, you contain the fire of His bright, glorious Presence.

You know the touch of the Master.


My Prayer

‘Father, I know Your call is going out. And I ask for those Whose hearts resonate, who say ‘Yes!’ to You—who have asked for You to come with fire and who have perhaps, up until now, not known what they have asked for. And they are catching a glimpse.

Come, by Your Spirit.

And make them Brave.

    Hi Helen,
    I’d like to thank you for this blog it is a real encouragement to me. Just at the beginning of last week i read some comments on what Moses said to God about ” show me your glory”.
    I’ve been longing to know Father deeper and have been seeking him for a while, then your blog about “His glory” comes on Friday. I think I’m travelling in the right direction!
    Jeremiah 29:12-13 came to my mind:
    Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.
    I honour you for what you do with this blog.
    Blessings

    So the fire of God does not just remove sin, but it also burns in me. I have to burn with the fire. Wow!

  5. Jan

    Long time ago, took a picture of the fire glowing in the fireplace. When looking at the picture later on, I realized the longest flame extended, was in the shape of a hand with a finger extended upward…….amazing!
