The Fire of God

THE FIRE OF GOD
Revelation 20King James Version (KJV
20 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.

1Thes . 1: 6 Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you;
7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,
8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:
9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;
~~~~~
2 Thessalonians 2King James Version (KJV)
2 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
~~~~~~
Heb 10: 26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.

Hebrews 12:28-29King James Version (KJV)
28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
29 For our God is a consuming fire.
The FIRE of God shall devour the adversaries. He shall consume the wicked with the spirit of his MOUTH.

Rev 11: 5 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
6 These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.
7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.

The BEAST that ASCENDS OUT OF THE BOTTOMLESS PIT.
When / how was this beast placed into this pit? Go back to Rev 20, at the beginning of this message. It shows you right there. So, this beast is in the pit until these WITNESSES finish their testimony. This beast is their own humanity or self, possessed with the wicked spirit of Adam. Self. After those who had that Holy Ghost power died, then that beast or flesh rose up again and took the people back into the Gresian kingdom or riotous carnal living.

QUESTION: who/when was that witness?
Jesus told his disciples, Ye are my witnesses. There you have it. That first, early CHURCH is the witness this is speaking of. This powerful WITNESS CHURCH OR PROPHET, (the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophesy).. you must know the word to ever put any of this together, and be delivered from all the many lies or false prophets before us.
In 2Thes we were told that someone was preventing this wicked one from being exposed. They would continue to block this evil deceiver until they are taken off the scene.
So who in Scripture lifted himself up above God? None other than ADAM, that old serpent or satan. Eze 28.
So this evil spirit of Adam, through whom sin and death entered this world, is being held or bound, UNTIL this powerful group of witnesses of Jesus, are taken away. Then that wicked spirit of Adam/satan was loosed again, to go out and deceive this entire world, again.
Notice that the FIRE of God, that spirit in the mouth of those witnesses, was tormenting those wicked ones on the earth. They came against every false way and had power over it and them. So the wicked ones, with Adam’s evil spirit, came against this powerful witness and KILLED THEM. THEN that wicked one was revealed in all his evil.
This evil spirit of satan/Adam, went out and took away all the knowledge of truth, which this true Church had given this world, along with the powerful gifts of the Holy Ghost and the true plan of salvation. The power of this Pentecostal Church had turned that world upside-down. Now that this wicked one had taken over the ‘church’, death again entered and the people took back up all their idols and upped it one as they picked back up that old Saturnalia and sent gifts to each other, rejoicing over the DEATH OF THIS WITNESS which now lay ‘dead’ in their ’streets’. The ‘witness’ with the power from on high, would now lay dead in the ‘church streets’ for a certain period of time. If you think of this as natural men laying in natural streets, you are carnal minded, and will never see any truth.

The wicked one was bound in the pit, or bottomless ‘church’, for a time and then loosed for another short season. During this season of seven mixed churches, Satan has full control and sits in the seat of this church. He is now their ‘god’.
Now watch something else:
John 6: 53 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.
54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
55 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.
57 As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.
55 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.
57 As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.
55 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.
57 As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.

Whoso EATETH, (continual), my flesh, and drinketh, (means continues to eat and drink), my blood HAS ETERNAL LIFE, and dwells, (continually) in me and I in him. So you must eat this bread, all of it. Jesus told the disciples, the night he was taken, eat ALL OF IT. If you are DWELLING IN JESUS, you cannot be dead or lost. But you must be eating of this spiritual bread DAILY. You cannot live by just a tiny bite on Sunday morning. That is pure foolishness.
You cannot take a small portion that seems to suit you and your ‘doctrine’ and leave out the rest. This will not give you eternal life. It takes eating it ALL.
Jesus said his came from the Father and he lives by the Father; but ours comes from Jesus and we live by Jesus. v57.
63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
So here we see the answer… it is his WORDS. They are SPIRIT AND THEY ARE LIFE. It is not Jesus’ human body. It is his WORDS. It is FIRE coming out of his mouth.

Revelation 10King James Version (KJV)
10 And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:
2 And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,
8 And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.
9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.
10 And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.
11 And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.
The little book is the Scripture. It is the Word of God. It is what the Father fed to Jesus to give Jesus eternal life.
Jesus is the one who went and took the open book, ate it ALL UP. It was so sweet when he spoke it, (in his mouth), but it made his belly bitter. Took him to calvary.
But Jesus prophesied again, first through that first WITNESS CHURCH AND HE WILL ONCE AGAIN HAVE ANOTHER WITNESS CHURCH AT THE END OF THIS AGE.

This second witness Church will have the fire of God, coming out of our mouth, to DEVOUR our enemies; those who rejoiced at the death of these witnesses, who told the world, you must REPENT, be water baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, for the remission of sins and be filled with the baptism of the Holy Ghost and Fire. This powerful message has lain DEAD in your ‘streets’ for seven church times, the little season.

But make no mistake about it, they will RISE AGAIN. This time, with power to destroy the evil off this earth. The Fire of God will be coming out of this witness mouth to devour or consume the wicked one and his kingdom off this earth.

The Word THOUSAND means a teaching family or those who utter. It refers first to the Church, born at Pentecost, filled with the Holy Ghost and speaking in other tongues as the spirit gives UTTERANCE.

During their time, Satan was bound in that pit. After this church was removed from this earth, then that wicked one came up out of that pit and destroyed a true church off this earth. They began to murder and kill anyone who went into the truth and found the true Salvation again. They were killed and never allowed to become a Church again. They were scattered all over this earth, but not together in power.

2 Peter 2King James Version (KJV)
2 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.
11 Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.
12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;
13 And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you;
14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:
15 Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;
16 But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man’s voice forbad the madness of the prophet.
Here, Peter shows us what the BEAST are. They are wicked men, full of lust, adultery and running after rewards or wages for their so-called religious work.

Jude 4: 4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.
Notice, these ungodly men live in fornication and other evils, and will suffer the vengeance of eternal fire as did Sodom.
10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.
11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.

Here Jude also identifies these wicked men as beast and are greedy for reward, as was Balaam. This is your paid preachers. They are these brute beast. Now watch what happens to these beast:

Rev 20: 4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
This thousand years began with the Apostles, as they had the power of God through that first resurrection, that occurs after we are BAPTIZED INTO HIS DEATH AND RAISED IN THE LIKENESS OF HIS RESURRECTION. Roman 6; Col 2.
These witnesses of Jesus now had LIFE, FOR THEY HAD PASSED FROM DEATH TO LIFE. They live with Christ and sit on those thrones of judgment. They already have eternal life, for they ate the book or his flesh, so the second death has no power over these people.

These witnesses are the ones who do not worship that beast and his image. So what is this beast? It is the very same as Gog, people without God. The image of sinful man is this human body we are clothed with. This is the image we must overcome. This (your own humanity or self), is what you must overcome and NOT WORSHIP. If you worship some man, such as your preacher, your entertainment idols, your prophets, etc, you are one of these beast worshiping that image. If you cling to this and never repent and overcome your flesh, you will be consumed with the Fire of God.

If you question that this humanity is this image to the beast, read Romans 8. In this chapter we are told that Jesus was in the likeness of image of SINFUL MAN. In Psalms Jesus told God, I will be satisfied when I awake (resurrection) in thy likeness. God told Jesus, in the morning, (resurrection) you will despise their image.
It means to get rid of this dust frame of humanity and come into glorification.

But you who glory in this image of sinful man, your own self or flesh, you are not likely to be given that glorified body.
Rev 19: 18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.
To EAT the flesh of these KINGS, means the same thing as eating that Book, or the flesh of Jesus. These kings, captains, and mighty men are those true Christians, with the fire, sword and power of God coming out of their mouth. It is the very same bread that Jesus gave them to eat. We must eat it from the apostles and any others who speak the same Word or truth. This is the same as when God called Gog to come and eat the flesh of the sacrifice, which means Jesus gave his life for us. We must eat his flesh and be set free from worshiping that image of the beast.
The beast, (or sinful men) went to war with Jesus and his Church. This began on the Day of Pentecost, not out here beyond our day. That false teaching has thrown the truth totally away so that no one can see the truth of God’s word.
It is too much for me to put into one message, but if you will do a study on FIRE, you will see the fire of God not only consumes the chaff, but purifies the gold and silver. The stone will either grind you to power or break your pride out of you and take you down to no longer worship that outer beast or yourself.

God is a FIRE. Fire comes out of their mouth; same as that sword. So:
When God took that beast and the false prophet, (teachers of lies),.. and cast them into that lake of FIRE, it was salvation to some and destruction to others. Those who let the Fire of God cleanse them and burn the dross out of them, come forth as pure GOLD. The very same fire that destroys the enemy, also saves the repentant.

The beast and the false prophet is one and the same. Anyone who lives to their flesh and teaches or believes lies, are the beast and false prophet. Unless you repent and allow God to burn that mess out of you, when you land in that lake of FIRE, it will consume you and destroy you. Otherwise, it will consume you and bring you forth as gold in the Master’s house. But, we must ALL WALK THROUGH THE FIRE. There is no other way home.

While the FIRE is purging you, you will sometimes think he is destroying you then. But if you just keep allowing him to correct you and bring yourself into obedience, this fire will deliver you and set you free to become kings in his kingdom.
