FFLogo 150When the LORD made His Covenant with Abraham, He revealed Himself as a burning torch (Genesis 15:17-18). The LORD revealed Himself to Moses through the burning bush (Exodus 3:2-14). The children of Israel were led through the wilderness by the presence of God manifested by a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. 

On Mount Carmel, the Lord answered the prophet Elijah's prayer by sending down fire on his altar (1 Kings 18:36-39). John the Baptist prepared the way for the LORD declaring: "He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire" Matthew 3:11-12. The Church was born in the fires of Pentecost (Acts 2:1-3).

The Scripture warns us: "Do not put out the Holy Spirit's fire" 1 Thess 5:19

The Book of Revelation describes the Lord Jesus: "His eyes were a flame of fire, His feet were like fine brass, as if refined in a furnace… His countenance was like the sun shining in its strength. And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead." Revelation 1:13-18

Do you have a vision of the holiness of God? Have you experienced the baptism of fire? Reformer John Calvin described the Church as: "The fellowship of the flaming heart." His personal emblem was a heart aflame in the hand of God, and his motto: "Promptly and sincerely in the service of My God."

Are you on fire for Christ?

“‘Is not My Word like a fire?’ Says the Lord, ‘and like a hammer that breaks the rocks in pieces?’" Jeremiah 23:29

On Reformation Day, 31 October 2012, we launched a bold new initiative for Reformation. Inspired by Dr. Martin Luther's nailing the 95 Theses to the church door in Wittenburg, 31 October 1517, we are launching a five-year plan to Reform our churches, a seven-year plan to Reform our communities and a nine-year plan to Reform our nations. 

You can read more on this on the www.ReformationSA.org website and on social media, you can access our Reformation 500 Facebook page.

Do you want to be part of this Coalition for Revival? Then join FIRE (Fellowship for International Revival and Evangelism). FIRE teams will seek to comprehensively fulfill the Great Commission, making disciples, teaching obedience to all things that the Lord has commanded, applying the Lordship of Christ to every area of life.

Contact us and become part of FIRE, to Reform our churches and transform society by the Word of God.

Our churches need Revival. We need to get back to the Bible for Reformation and Revival.

Give up your small ambitions and follow Christ!

"For our God is a consuming fire." Hebrews 12:29
