Summary: What do you do to keep the embers in the House of God buring?
What do I need to put on my fire, brother preacher. Well, I need you to know that the best log for the Holy Ghost fire is the word of God. The Word of God is fuel for your fire… you need some word down in your soul… a word that’ll teach the truth and not watered down word. If the word is watered down, the fire will be put out because water can put out your fire. When you accept sugar-coated and watered down Gospel, you’re life gets watered down… You need to read for yourself.
Prayer is a log for the fire. Constant prayer is needed, but not watered down prayer. Strong and sincere prayer is needed. We have to talk to God like we really need help. This is no time to be cute. Take a look around in our world. Look in the homes and in the schools. Where is the fire? Young people are being sucked in by gangs… the boy’s pants are sagging… the girl’s skirts are getting shorter… tattoos are everywhere… body piercing is everywhere… regular marriages are falling apart and same sex marriages are coming together… families can’t get along… we need a prayer log.
It’s just enough mess in this world to put out the fire. This is an urgent matter… this is not the time to be cute… we need a prayer log to put on the fire… We need to talk to God… Put the dentures in the glass… put the weave on the dresser… leave the contacts in the solution… the chipped nail can wait… somebody needs to CALL GOD! Put a prayer log on the fire!
Verse 13 says that the fire should never go out. I admonish you to keep your fire burning. Don’t let your fire go out. We need the power of the Holy Ghost. We can’t make it without the fire. If your fire has gone out, you need to go back to the altar and stay there until you get the Holy Ghost fire… We need oh the Holy Ghost fire. We need it down on the inside… OH that fire keeps Satan’s germs away… OH that fire will burn away life’s mess… OH that fire is a consuming fire… That fire will burn away disease… That fire will burn away your problems… OH that fire will burn away tribulations… That fire will burn away sickness… That fire will burn away stress… OH that fire will burn away drama… That fire will burn away stress… That fire will burn away debt… That fire will burn away work trouble… That fire will burn away child troubles… That fire can burn away marital trouble… That fire will wash away your sins… That fire will make you love your neighbors… That fire will make you love your enemies… That fire can melt cold-blooded heart... OH that fire will make you love everybody… I wonder do you have it… I like the way the old time preachers say it… I can feel it moving down on the inside? I wonder is that fire shut up in your bones.
Don’t let your fire go out. If you think it’s getting low, put another log on the fire. Go back into the word of God and find another log to put on your fire. Go back to John if you want to; it says I will send you a comforter, the comforter will come! Put another log on the fire! Go over to Acts if you need to; it says that you shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost shall come upon you. Put another log on your fire! Go over to Luke; it says that Jesus died, but he didn’t stay dead; early the Sunday morning he rose with all power heaven and earth in his hand. Power, to save souls; power to make you whole; power to heal disease; power to restore your joy; power to give you peace; power to supply your needs.
