DANCE OF FIRE
I wrote the content on this blog with sincere and holy intentions with the knowledge that I had at the time... We live, learn and amend...as errors are exposed and more truths are revealed...
Only GOD is perfect. It's vital that you seek the Lord to expose any errors that you've embraced. Please ask Him to expose any areas of darkness to you and for what is necessary to do to dispossess what's NOT of truth.
Flames of fire dance joyfully as dreams of fervor conjure up images of red hot passion for the gusto of life.
Sizzle, spark, explode -
Fireballs light up the sky. Wow! a thunder flash with a clap -
The flames are vivid with the awesome glow of orange colors blended with yellow highlights that accent the blaze.
This display is the bomb torched with a rocket plan. Such rapture has lit our fire. We are dynamite on this journey.
Come on fire, fall on us. Pour your liquid potency. Ignite our souls that we may be engulfed with magnified intensity.
Blow up our hearts. Dance with us....

Can the Holy Bible Be an Idol?
I recently learned...that the Bible can be an idol. Two articles, in particular, convinced me...
Update: Today, Tuesday February 25, 2014, I found more links.
Below is a helpful very brief video.
If you're inclined, please read the next topic here right below this one.
GOD Knows Who Is Religious and Who Is Authentically Saved
There's nothing going on that's NOT on GOD's radar. With GOD, ALL things are possible. NOTHING is impossible with GOD. GOD can move fast, slow or however HE DEEMS fit to do what He decides for HIS GOOD PLEASURE and for the gospel of HIS KINGDOM.
GOD is forever MOST HIGH. And only Jesus is the resurrection, the way, the truth and the life who rose from the dead in the flesh. No one can come to the Father GOD but by Jesus Christ. Jesus is the Author of salvation, the first begotten of the dead, the Word that became flesh, the Author and the Finisher of our Faith, the Captain of our salvation and more...
People doubt and some doubts are in order...
Does GOD know that you're an AUTHENTIC Christian? Does GOD know that our SALVATION is authentic? Does Jesus KNOW that He is authentically in our testimonies and in the lives that we live with SINCERE purpose to perfect holiness - 2 Corinthians 7:1? Are our authentic born-again experiences PROVEN TO GOD/JESUS/HOLY SPIRIT? When GOD has His proof..., UNLESS HE INSTRUCTS US otherwise, we're NOT obligated to prove our authentic born-again experiences to others... Certainly, it's helpful to share but there's a difference in sharing and believing that there's an obligation to prove... Let GOD LEAD as to how much to share and explain...
Yes, we should exhibit and demonstrate godly fruits and evidence that we walk in truth. But when all is said and done, ONLY GOD knows the fulness of every heart. And truly, GOD to the FULLEST extent, knows who is authentically saved and who is not.
So, yes, we FIRST need to have a lifestyle of ministering to our Lord. Only then are we fit to minister to others. Jesus teaches us to share the gospel. He also tells us to judge RIGHTEOUSLY... We plant and we water but GOD gives the increases within people...
Yes, we are to examine ourselves and to work out our OWN salvation with fear and trembling. Yes, we are to seek advice from and to learn from others. But perspective is key. ONLY GOD IS THE SOURCE - ALL else is resource. Yes, GOD uses resources but certainly resources CANNOT substitute for GOD/JESUS/HOLY SPIRIT.
GOD IS THE MOST HIGH - THE ONLY SOURCE. Resources are certainly to be appreciated - we need both - SOURCE and resources.
Again, with GOD, all things are possible and NOTHING is impossible with GOD. He does whatsoever He pleases...when, how, what, who...
Religious people, priests and elders..., crucified Jesus. They likely thought that they were saved. Also, there are numerous people who attend church who ignorantly believe that they're saved. Rather, they are bound by doctrines of devils, and traditions and commandments of men. They don't dwell in GOD/JESUS/HOLY SPIRIT. And they don't worship GOD in spirit and in truth, as is shown in the Holy Bible.
If you have any doubts as to whether your born again experience is authentic, sincerely seek GOD about it and He will reveal. Don't base your experiences, necessarily, on the experiences of others. GOD can move fast, slow or however He deems fit for each individual. We're all unique. GOD knows that and deals with us, accordingly. Note: Yes, we body-of- Christ members have commonalities but we need to be mindful of our unique aspects...and NOT seek to be like anyone other than who GOD has uniquely created us to be...
The truth is that we all have areas of ignorance. It's a good practice to ask GOD to expose areas of untruths to us and areas of error so that we can learn how to dispossess what isn't of GOD and to embrace what is of Him - and HIS GOOD PLEASURE.
Jesus said in John 6:44 - KJV, "No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him:..."
2 Timothy 2:19 - KJV
Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.
Dishonesty can sure kill testimonies. When dishonesty has been discovered, it can affect testimonies and it can affect/damage and even destroy credibility. And dishonesty sure isn't one of GOD's fruits - and truly, when He deems fit, He judges it, and ALL else that's contrary to His will. The remedy: Be honest and credible...and when NOT, seek forgiveness and cease dishonesty and all else that displeases GOD.
