Fresh Fire of God

Living Word Christian Magazine

Article from September 2015 Living Word

What I am about to say may come as a surprise to you, but there is a group of people who often battle through spiritual desert seasons, weariness, discouragement, and even feelings of inadequacy. These people are…

Pastors, Evangelists, and Ministers – the precious people who fulfil roles of Christian leadership. Their job is often lonely and hard.

And what they need the most is the fresh fire of God. That is the main reason we conduct our daytime Fire Conferences for Christian leaders alongside our massive Full Gospel Campaigns at night.

We want you to realize that when you give your gifts of support to this ministry, you not only play a key role in our tremendous soul-winning efforts. You also help ignite fresh Holy Ghost fire in the hearts of many Pastors and Christian leaders in that region. You bless men and women of God who need it most.

Christian leaders often face intense struggles and lonely wilderness experiences. Like everyone else, dry seasons can make them vulnerable to negative attitudes. Sorrow can soak them like a cold rain.

Anger can contaminate their thoughts and decisions. And disillusionment can blind them to the Lord’s faithfulness – the very thing leading them out of the desert and into the Promised Land.

But God’s fire consumes all of these dangers. It dries out sorrow, boils away the impurity of anger, and emits a glow in the barren night that illuminates God’s faithfulness and restores faith. Divine fire brings revival in the desert.

Time and time again, when we sense the Lord leading us to a certain region for a major Gospel Campaign, we also uncover a glaring need for the fire of God among Christian pastors and leaders. They often tell us about extreme desert conditions: so many of them feel spiritually tired, worn-down, and discouraged. Many feel like they have come to the end of their rope.

With tears in their eyes, they often plead for us to come, telling us how they long and pray for a fresh move of the fire and power of God in their hearts, churches, and communities.

The LORD uses you to be a part of His answer to their prayers.

Your gifts help us to say “Yes” to them. You help to make our Fire Conferences and Evangelistic Campaigns happen! We cannot go without you!

Like it or not, you and I are in a great spiritual battle. Peter described us as “aliens and strangers” in this world and warned us of “sins which wage war against your soul” (1 Pet. 2:11).

In other places the Scriptures mention “the weapons of our warfare” (2 Cor. 10:4) and “fighting the good fight of faith” (1 Tim 6:12; 2 Tim 4:7).

These are the very times we must remember what Jesus said in John 16:33: “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

We know that, together with you, we are laying the foundation that opens hearts and minds to receive a fresh outpouring of fire.

We have seen it over and over again. If there was ever a season when the fire and power of God were needed most … that time is NOW.
