"TRUE FIRE" by
Pastor Tony Sutton
Isa 50:11 Behold, all ye that kindle a fire, that
compass yourselves about with sparks: walk in the light of your
fire, and in the sparks that ye have kindled. This shall ye have
of mine hand; ye shall lie down in sorrow.
OFTEN GO ON OUR OWN FIRE. WE WANDER WHY WE ARE ON THE MOUNTAIN
TODAY AND DOWN IN THE VALLEY TOMORROW, WELL WHEN WE ARE SPARKED BY
OUR FIRE INSTEAD OF GOD'S, THEN IT DOESN'T LAST LONG. WHEN WE ARE
FIRED UP BY THE FIRE OF GOD, THEN IT BECOMES HARDER FOR SATAN TO
DRAG US DOWN, AND WE HAVE MORE DRIVE. I THINK SOMETIMES WE PUMP
PEOPLE UP IN WORSHIP WITH MUSIC AND HYPE, AND I AM NOT SAYING THAT
IT IS NOT GOOD, BUT I WILL SAY IF THEY HAD NOTHING TO EXCITE THEM
ABOUT JESUS AND WORSHIP BEFORE THE SERVICE, THEN WHAT THEY WILL
RECEIVE IN HYPE WILL FADE AWAY QUICKLY. JESUS IS MORE THAN ABLE TO
"FIRE US UP" JUST MAKE SURE IT IS GOD AND NOT SATAN.
JUST REMEMBER, WHAT GOD GIVES US IS EVERLASTING, AND WHAT SATAN
GIVES US IS FAKE. THE END FOR A CHRISTIAN IS JOY AND THE END FOR A
LOST PERSON IS DAMNATION. DO YOU KNOW THAT YOU KNOW THAT YOU KNOW,
IN THE END WHAT YOU HAVE IS REAL?
Friend: Would you let us know if this sermon has led you to the
Lord, inspired you to re-dedicate your life to the Lord, or simply
been a Blessing unto you?
