For The Love

Acts 28:1-6 NLT Once safely on shore, we found out that the island was called Malta. The islanders showed us unusual kindness. They built a fire and welcomed us all because it was raining and cold. Paul gathered a pile of brushwood and, as he put it on the fire, a viper, driven out by the heat, fastened itself on his hand. When the islanders saw the snake hanging from his hand, they said to each other, “This man must be a murderer; for though he escaped from the sea, the goddess Justice has not allowed him to live.” But Paul shook the snake off into the fire and suffered no ill effects. The people expected him to swell up or suddenly fall dead; but after waiting a long time and seeing nothing unusual happen to him, they changed their minds and said he was a god.

• They built the Fire • Paul added to the fire, We through praise and PRAYER add to the FIRE! • They thought Paul would die. (some are waiting for your Fire to Die Out. • They Accused Paul, they’ll accuse and try to shame you. • But Paul Shook the snake OFF back into the Fire, • (The Same Fire of That Drove out the Snake was the Same Powerful Fire that Doomed the snake.)

LOOK at another Scripture.

Exodus 3 KJV Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb. And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed. And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt. And when the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I. And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground. Moreover he said, I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God. And the Lord said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows; And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey…

• Fire is photosynthesis: process where elements like vapor, light and heat is used by plants and made into food for the plant to Grow. • Fire is Not a thing, IT IS AN EVENT. (when all elements are present) • As studying this scientist say that a tree on fire is actual growing backwards instead of taking in the elements it released them… Vapor, Light, Heat. FIRE • THAT IS NATURAL FIRE. • WE HAVE REVIVAL FIRE. • Moses Encountered Super Natural FIRE. • We are Experiencing Super Natural FIRE. • God Called Out to Moses • God is Calling out to you and I • God Delivered His People • God is delivering you and I
