Live Behind The Veil show

Summary: Summary: The fire comes to purify us so that we can have a close relationship with the Lord What does the fire burn? Why do we go through trials and testing ’s? Show Notes: • The fire has a dual purpose, the destruction of the “bad” and the bringing out the “good”. • We want to see our Father face to face. • We have a choice in how we relate to the fire. • God is a consuming fire, when we go through the fire we get to know Him closer. References: Hebrews 12:29 KJV For our God is a consuming fire. Daniel 3:22-27 NLT The story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego Matthew 3:11 NASB “ As for me, I baptize you with water for repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, and I am not fit to remove His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. Matthew 21:44 ISV The person who falls over this stone will be broken to pieces, but it will crush anyone on whom it falls.” James 1:2, 3 NIV 2. Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3. because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Hebrews 12:5b NASB My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord, Nor faint when you are reproved by Him; Matthew 3:12 NIV His winnowing fork is in His hand, and He will clear His threshing floor, gathering His wheat into the barn and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire. Leviticus 17:11 NLT For the life of the body is in its blood. I have given you the blood on the altar to purify you, making you right with the Lord. It is the blood, given in exchange for a life, that makes purification. 1 Peter 1:19 NIV But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. Hebrews 12:6 NKJV For whom the Lord loves He chastens, And scourges every son whom He receives.” Quotes: • What was consumed by the fire? Their bondages. • You go through this honeymoon experience, then He puts His finger on things in your life. • Your Adamic nature is going to be less and less. • There is an element of our choice. • I think we go through little tidbits here and there. • He has worked in your heart already. Take Away: He wants all of us and it is the process of the fire that He uses to purify our hearts so that we can relate to Him, and He be revealed in us.
