BE BAPTIZED BY FIRE MEANS THAT YOU’LL BE TRIED BY FIRE
By Pieter Kirstein
To be baptized by fire means that you'll be tried by fire . . .
means that everything you are believing and standing for shall be attacked and drawn into question by the adversary of God and the enemy of your soul through satanic and carnal reasonings, until the Father has developed the golden character of godliness into
you and until you look like, talk like and do like His Son Jesus. Why?
Because God wants to elevate you and bring you into His realm of operation where everything is possible, until you become naturally
He's maturing us in the fire -
2 My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials;
Knowing this, that the trying of your faith works patience.
4 But let patience have her perfect work,
that you may be mature and entire, lacking in nothing.
The Father Yahweh declared
to me "your faith has been perfected and matured, when you are at peace in the midst of seemingly impossible circumstances"
Be inspired and encouraged by the words of brother Job
Oh, that I knew where I might find Him,
That I might come to His seat!
4 I would present my case before Him,
And fill my mouth with arguments.
5 I would know the words which He would answer me,
And understand what He would say to me.
6 Would He contend with me in His great power?
No! But He would take note of me.
There the upright could reason with Him,
And I would be delivered forever from my Judge.
8 “Look, I go forward, but He is not there,
And backward, but I cannot perceive Him;
When He works on the left hand, I cannot behold Him;
When He turns to the right hand, I cannot see Him.
10 But He knows the way that I take;
When He has tested me, I shall come forth as gold.
11 My foot has held fast to His steps;
I have kept His way and not turned aside.
12 I have not departed from the commandment of His lips;
I have treasured the words of His mouth
More than my necessary food.
13 “But He is unique, and who can make Him change?
And whatever His soul desires, that He does.
14 For He performs what is appointed for me,
And many such things are with Him.
15 Therefore I am terrified at His presence;
When I consider this, I am afraid of Him.
16 For God made my heart weak,
And the Almighty
There's always GREAT BLESSING AND PROMOTION after the test. Our characters must be purged from everything that can spoil the blessing of God and we need to trust God until our characters
have been fully matured and developed that He might place us in the seat of the overcomer as a responsible, wise functioning heir.
17 He sent a man before
them, even Joseph, who was sold for a servant:
18 Whose feet they hurt with fetters: he was laid in irons:
19 Until the time that his word came: the word of the LORD tested him.
20 The king sent and loosed him; even the ruler of the people, and let him go free.
21 He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his substance:
