As a branch grafted to the vine…(Romans 11:17) Our Christian faith is rooted from the Jewish faith in God having our savior born as a Jew. Let us celebrate with them the Feast of Pentecost (Acts 2) when God poured His Spirit on the 120 people who waited on Him manifesting the blazing holy fire.
One modern incidence was when the Azusa Fire Revival broke out roughly in 1906 – 1915 in America and continued then on. On numerous occasions during the gatherings when Pastor Seymour encouraged the people to sing in the Spirit, there was a fire perceived coming up from the building. Mistakenly, people from the outside thought that the building was literally on fire and they called the fire department. LA fire department was called out several times to put out the fire until they reached the place and no fire was found. No smell of burning material was found. All they found was series of miracles happening in their midst. It was the fire of God’s Glory!
Last year’s celebration at IHOP was more of a wonder when God just moved in the Spirit of Prophecy and Baptism of Fire roll down. Literally, oil was just dripping all over the place from the ceiling to the walls, to the floor. First ever to happen in that place. No foul smell was perceived from the residue of the liquid. It was God’s oil of joy and gladness that lit up His fire in the house! The fiery hotness of God’s presence was all over. What can we say? Fire is really hot! And it needs the oil! Glory to God!
If God can do it then, He can do it now.
Join us this coming Sunday, June 12, 2016, 1:30PM at Iloilo House of Prayer (IHOP), Casa Plaza Building, Gen. Luna Street, Iloilo City.
