DANCE OF FIRE
I wrote the content on this blog with sincere and holy intentions with the knowledge that I had at the time... We live, learn and amend...as errors are exposed and more truths are revealed...
Only GOD is perfect. It's vital that you seek the Lord to expose any errors that you've embraced. Please ask Him to expose any areas of darkness to you and for what is necessary to do to dispossess what's NOT of truth.
Flames of fire dance joyfully as dreams of fervor conjure up images of red hot passion for the gusto of life.
Sizzle, spark, explode -
Fireballs light up the sky. Wow! a thunder flash with a clap -
The flames are vivid with the awesome glow of orange colors blended with yellow highlights that accent the blaze.
This display is the bomb torched with a rocket plan. Such rapture has lit our fire. We are dynamite on this journey.
Come on fire, fall on us. Pour your liquid potency. Ignite our souls that we may be engulfed with magnified intensity.
Blow up our hearts. Dance with us....

ANYBODY GAME FOR DAILY?
The Lord spoke to me this a.m. about posting a piece about what it says in His Word about “daily” relative to worship.
I had forgotten about it until I read an online article today by Karen Gross. Why aren’t more churches open every day for prayer, teaching, and worship? Some probably cannot afford the practice but for sure, many can afford to operate more than a couple of times a week. It is necessary to add that those that are open for more days need to be REVELANT in HOLY operations. Last year, I was pleased to find a church that has daily Bible reading Monday – Saturday at 7:00 a.m. Some people would come before going to work. Usually one of the deacons and about 4-5 others would attend. Each person read a Bible passage and prayed. I attended for about two weeks but became disinclined because two women who regularly attended were not demonstrating love in their conduct. Their failure to reflect love was not an isolated occurrence. It was apparent each morning. The Lord has had me to remain in Christian surroundings where love did NOT flow, but in this instance, He told me to cease to go to that daily Bible reading/prayer. I think about it sometimes. It is the only church that I know of in my area that has such a daily program. Maybe the Lord will allow me to return there again. He recently told me that church people who refuse to love cannot be relevant to what our Lord is doing… Perhaps love is now evident from those two women. People do change. The Lord had to deal deeply with me about my love deficit. There is measurable improvement but I pray often that I will love more in ways that bring Him joy, pleasure and delight.
Our Father is NOT impressed by shallow motions from people who profess to know Him. In His Word, He speaks from Mark 7:6, “…This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.” GOD yearns for authentic worship.
That said - there are desires for DAILY church operations that are RELEVANT with HOLY practices a constant. We cannot be unrealistic in beliefs that all in church attendance are going to flow in love and holiness. But there should be reasonable expectations that church leadership demonstrates and promotes holiness. If the heads are spiritually bereft, I believe that it is likelier that sheep may be so inclined. Of course, there are people who are determined to be holy in spite of whoever and whatever. Such are purposed towards GOD, and being kingdom-minded, regardless! Thank GOD for His remnant!
Posted below are some scriptures that I found relative to “daily.”
In that same hour said Jesus to the multitudes,…I sat daily with you teaching in the temple,…
I was daily with you in the temple teaching, …
And he taught daily in the temple,…
When I was daily with you in the temple,…
The Acts 2:46
And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, …
The Acts 5:42
And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.
The Acts 17:11
These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
Also, The Acts 17:17; 19:9, and Hebrews 10:11
