Where’s the Fire?

Where’s the fire?

Nay, not bluster

nor volume

lackluster antics

by well rehearsed pretenders

drawing God’s ire

order of the day from most pulpits

puppets of their master

the angel of light deceiving many

with “feel good”

tolerate everything

anything goes

is today’s message

make ’em fill the pews

not by preaching

the

GOOD NEWS

putting on a show

every Sunday morning

only to lead to rest of the week

mourning

of the

Spirit

not teaching the ways of the Lord

His word

His sacrifice

His grace

His expectation of obedience if professing the faith

nay, not today

upon the gilded lilies on display

acting

bad stand-up

while the congregation slumbers down farther

along the path of worldliness

apostasy

to the gates of hell

bellowing

from the pulpits

not due to the Spirit working within them

nay, not that

nay, no evidence

of

the Holy Spirit

there at all

in the staged antics

as

if

all that external rubbish

the big act

is working

and

God

is

not

listening

watching

grieving

in the so-called shepherd’s

entrusted

(mis)leading

where is the Biblical

SPIRITUAL

GOSPEL MESSAGE

NEEDED?

pastors, preachers

appear to audition for a bad

reality show here

in

the

temporal

no fear of the appearance of spiritual fire appearing

near these

in their appeasing

worldly

unsound

words

ignoring

THE WORD

never-minding the heavenly

the truth

the Bible

the Lord

while the flock lies sleeping!

 

 

Where’s the fire of the Spirit?

Where’s the fire for the truth of the gospel?

Where’s the fire

within

the

heart

mind

spirit

of the preachers preaching

instructed to teach in the ways, the whole Word of the Lord

now falsely,

wearing worldly words

rather than dressed in the full armor of God

found naked

wanting

lacking in truth

devoid of preaching in the Spirit

appeasing

pleasing

men

and

women

not made for His pleasure

while uttering unsound doctrines

false teachings

supposedly

shepherding their flocks?

 

 

 

Where’s the fire

the awe,

wonder

amazement

understanding it’s a mystery

they are not of mastery

removing the awe

speechless wonder

found in God’s Word

falling

failing

flailing

if not physically then within the minds, the souls

at the magnificence

glory

all that God

Jesus

Holy Spirit

complete Holy Bible

is

we’re

capable

of

knowing?

Then living!

Exhibiting!

Salt this earth!

Flavor your words with the truths of the Gospel

Season your times in the ways of the Lord

Allowing

the

light

that

ought

to be within

the fire

(Spirit)

within

to be seen without

so

those near can know

the glory of the Father!

More awe

wonder

amazement

spent

on fleeting fireworks

disappearing in the heavens

with a bang

more

awe

wonder

in the crack of the bat

sinking a ball

what gall

spewing from pulpits

dung

such as does not lie on the floor

in a swine’s

stall

desiring to make the lost in their throng

weak in the Bible

rather

than

strong

leaning to their own wisdom

vain

bloated by bombastic ego

lies

philosophies

the world dishes out in gluttonous fashion

to be

devoured

the lies constipating the spirit

denying the awe

wonder

magnificence

infinite breadth, depth, height

expanse

of God our Father

Christ our Saviour

in their Sunday

ill gotten

behavior!

 

 

Ignite the flame

let the fire increase

flames of refining

fire of light and heat

not in union with anything lukewarm

cold

bought

and

sold

wake up you slothful sluggards!

Strike the embers of the heart

with the matchless Word of God

bringing out the Light

the fire within

pushing out the world

the darkness

 

Where is the oil in your lamps

ready to burn to reveal the way

of the Bridegroom?

Where’s the salt?

Why won’t you ignite the fire

to shine like that city on a hill

for all to see?

 

Walking dead

sleep walking

see it in their dead, dead, dead

eyes

desiring to remain in darkness

rather than

ignite the fire of truth

within the hearts

minds

spirits

souls speaking of things heavenly

doctrinally

soundly

repenting

falling on our knees

humbly in prayer

constant

continual

in the spirit

humble private prayer!

Waiting upon the Lord our God

true disciples of Jesus Christ

Lord

Saviour

our only path to salvation

heaven

LIFE!

No second death

nay, not that for the obedient

faithful

diligent

never ceasing in private prayer

always attired

in the

full armor of the Lord

His truth

His being

His “I am”

lighting the way

every

moment

of

every

day

in every way

if only we would

turn to Him

seeking

faithfully BELIEVING!

 

 

Where’s the fire of the Holy Spirit within?

 

 

Why

instead

do

we

throw polluted waters upon

the ONLY TRUE WORD

attempting to dilute its searing truth?

Why

are

we

content

to continue to further

sin?

 

 

Mimicking rather our original earthly parents

Adam

Eve

in their disobedience to God

serving rather

believing rather

the cunning

the lying

the deceitful

father of lies

the Evil One

the devil

Satan (Lucifer) he who rebelled

taking legions

of selfish

blind

arrogant

foolish

impure

with him

to the depths of his hell

only leading to

pain

anguish

fear

eternal

death

why refuse

the Truth

the Way

the Light

the Life?

Snuffing out the spiritual fires within

preferring to pursue

further

sin

in this

you

none

nay, not a one

will win

the anguish coming incomprehensible to the unbelieving

the apostate

those within the gaining daily, marching in the Great Falling Away

the worldly

refusing

to

know

God our Father

Jesus Christ the Lord

His Son

the inerrant

living

WORD

our spiritual food

our spiritual fires kept burning

igniting our hearts

to Him

for Him

in Him

always

always

always

prayerfully

always

looking to the Lord!

 

Awake ye sleeping

slumbering

backsliding

unbelieving

while ye can…

 

Take the eternally burning fire of God’s Word

in hand

in heart

in spirit

in each step God our Father blesses each with

while having His blessed breath given…
