The Power of Fire

July 10, 2017
The Power of Fire
Fire and water have brought terror to Northern California this year.

This past spring, the Oroville Dam was threatened when water broke over an emergency spillway, causing the evacuation of thousands amid the imminent threat of a catastrophic breach. Now record-breaking temperatures have created the conditions for fires burning in the same areas and have led to new evacuations.

In the natural world, water is used to quench fire, but the Bible uses both fire and water to help us better understand the work of the Holy Spirit. God said, “I will pour water upon him who is thirsty, and floods on the dry ground; I will pour my Spirit on your descendants, and My blessing on your offspring” (Isaiah 44:3). In the New Testament, John the Baptist, referring to the work of Christ, said, “I indeed baptize you with water; but One mightier than I is coming, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loose. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire” (Luke 3:16).

Jesus promised that the Holy Spirit would come and lead us into all truth. “When He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for he will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come” (John 16:13). The Spirit’s work is to help us understand the truth found in God’s Word as exemplified in the life of Christ.

He is anxious to give us this amazing gift: “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!” (Luke 11:13). All we have to do is ask Him for the gift!

When Pentecost came and the Holy Spirit was given in a powerful way to the disciples, He appeared as “divided tongues, as of fire” (Acts 2:3). The transforming work of the Holy Spirit inspired and directed the growth of the early church so that the gospel went to all the world.
