The Fire Is Kindled
4/22/11 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
Thus says The Lord: The Word of My mouth breaks apart the mountains! Behold, whole ranges of mountains bow down when I pass by! Look how the earth trembles at My nearness and shakes beneath My footsteps!... And still the people say, “There is no God in Israel.”
The enemies of The Lord gather and set themselves in battle array; they gather together to destroy My holy mountain! They seek to break apart My covenants and slaughter My people! The cleverest among them devise evil schemes, and the most knowledgeable forge weapons of war.
Yet the banner of The Lord is risen up, the might of The Holy One is lifted high! Behold, I am poised in My strength, and My face is set to defend! And when I strike, who shall withstand My assault?! Who shall be left, when the hand of The Almighty is stretched out against them?!
For My hand is swifter than an eagle, the strength of My arm has crushed leviathan, and I shall not withhold! My wrath shall burst forth like the terrible mountain! The heat of My countenance shall melt the hills, and the rivers of the valleys shall run dry at My presence! For My eyes are like flames of fire, My tears fall and scorch the earth! Says The Lord... Behold, the whole world is set ablaze at the outward glance of The Almighty in His hot displeasure! - A cleansing fire, a purifying flame, of which none shall quench! THE FIRE IS KINDLED!
- Luke 12:49
