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....

Scriptures are from the King James Bible.
It is becoming increasingly obvious that Satan is becoming bolder.
This week in the news:
- A man stripped naked in the New York City subway as he yelled profane language.
- A young man attended church, sat in the back, and after collection walked to the table and took $200.00. He said to the congregation, "Don't make this hard." He walked out with his ill-gotten gain.
- An 80 year old woman robbed a visibly pregnant woman.
- A woman was seen in public holding the severed head of a dog.
- In another country, in a market, a man severed the head of a woman.
Yes, Satan is becoming bolder and more vicious. Are enough Christians becoming bolder in holiness and in witnessing for our Lord? The short answer is "No." Are too many Christians publicly quiet while Satan is becoming publicly louder? The short answer is "Yes."
The only way that we can be stronger than our enemies is to be holy in our thoughts, communications and deeds. We need to steadfastly sow to the Spirit of the Living GOD. Psalm 105:24 states, "And he increased his people greatly; and made them stronger than their enemies."
The entertainer, James Brown, sang a song with these lyrics included: "Talking loud and saying nothing." Today, more and more, that is what is going on in worldly conversations. We, the people of GOD, are charged to talk loud and say something. Recently, I heard a pastor say, "If we will get behind the Word, Satan will get behind us."
We need to become bolder in our walks with our Lord. Proverbs 28:1 says, "...the righteous are bold as a lion." And Proverbs 30:30 says, "A lion which is strongest among beasts and turneth not away for any;"
Our love for GOD should be bolder.
Our witnessing about JESUS should be bolder.
Our holy stances should be bolder.
Our faith in GOD should be bolder.
Satan is making a whole lot more noise. How much noise are we making? Are Satan's children, largely, bolder than GOD'S people?
Love is core but we must send forth more righteous boldness, as led by the Holy Spirit. Yes, some Christians are already in "bold mode" but not nearly enough are witnessing of the love, peace, joy, and judgments of Almighty GOD and our Savior JESUS Christ.
So many people are gripped by the bondage of Satan. They are in the world as fools because, typically, they don't know how to get free. We didn't know either until our Lord sent His words to us through messengers that shared His gospel.
When I observed the report of the man who stripped naked in the New York City subway, my heart went out to him. Satan has him and so many others. JESUS, please help the numerous people who are Satan's servants. And help us who are called by Your name to live of Your gospel and to share that You can make people free. We have a holy mandate to inform, and to warn that, yes, You are a Lord of love but with Your love comes full gospel truth. That truth includes messages about Your love and messages about Your punishment for evil. Exodus 23:7 says, "...for I will not justify the wicked." Please Lord, lead people to repentance so that they can escape the lake of fire - Revelation 21:8. Thank You, Lord - Amen.
Years ago, when I lived in a homeless shelter, some folks there mistook me for a punk because I'm a Christian. I told them, "I'm not here to punk anybody and I'm not here to be punked." Glory to GOD that when I left there months later, some of those same folks had deep respect for my walk with our Lord. In fact, some became teary eyed and sentimental when I left there.
Saints of the John the Baptist style particularly appeal to me. Yes, as the Spirit leads, I'm a live wire that unleases fire from the sword of my mouth. High praises to God that that's Holy Bible truth.
...fire proceedeth out of their mouth,...
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword,...
John the Baptist uttered words such as, "...O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come: Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance,..." - Luke 3:7, 8. And John 5:35 says about him, "He was a burning and a shining light:"
Oh yes, that type thrills me to the core. Thank You, Jesus for such warrior saints!
Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.
...Joshua said unto the people, Shout; for the Lord hath given you the city.
...for the people shouted with a loud shout, and the noise was heard afar off.
But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.
O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph..
And she spake out with a loud voice,...
...and with a loud voice glorified God,
...the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen;
The Acts 14:10
Said with a loud voice,...
And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice,...
Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.
And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth:...
And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him: for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth,...
And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.
And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God.
1 Samuel 4:5
And when the ark of the covenant of the Lord came into the camp, all Israel shouted with a great shout, so that the earth rang again.
