    Have you been tempered in the forge of life? ever had a fever of the mind? ever played with fire? ever played the devil's advocate?


    Revelation 20:15


    I know how to set a backfire.





    ever danced with nataraja, johnny cash, or phosphorescent in a circle of flames?

    Baptism of fire is the baptism of martyrs -real martyrs, being those who died for Christ while wanting to be baptized.

    matthew 20:22 burn baby, burn!!!!


    baptism by fire is a mental = spiritual thing. it's the other half of being born again by water and fire, the two things god used to create with.


    John 3
    5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.


    john the baptists was a outward cleansing

    jesus' was an inward cleansing by immersion into the name of names, exodus 3:14, of the cup. drink it down to the dreggs boys, there's more where that came from.


    many sheep have died for the truth because all who wander and wonder are not lost


    How is the Holy Spirit like a fire? | GotQuestions.org


    how many angels can dance on a pinhead? nataraja knows

    when I was sooooooo much younger
    I suffered 'accidents' of extreme unlikelihood
    been blind
    been numb
    been …..whatever

    and I have suspected after each occasion
    something gained

    did it hurt?...….oh boy
    I know a level of pain when the pain stops

    have such events shifted my perspective?
    let's just say.....YEAH....!
    OWWW
    YEAH

    and I have danced with temptation
    and I have been seduced

    I have encountered a possible death and fought with it
    I won

    I have acquired skills my fellowman won't attempt

    but as I stand before God and heaven
    They will ask
    and I will stay sharp or be called dull
    I will flex when required or break

    I have made acquisition
    when my hour befalls me
    God and heaven will let me keep what I have made of myself
    or cut me deeply

    I understand baptism by fire

    but I expect to be handed a sword
