Fire Anointing and Its Purpose


Jesus said in Matthew 7:21-23:-

Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’’

An apostle/teacher in the USA was training leaders how to heal the sick and perform miracles. A prophetess said to him: “The Lord says to you, ‘How dare you teach those who are unclean to do my works. Stop it.”’ 

God has made us “kings and priests unto our God” (Rev 1:6). HE wants us to have the power of kings and the purity of priests. 

“What God chooses, He cleanses. What God cleanses, He molds. What God molds, He fills. What God fills, He uses”. - J. S. Baxter 

Paul said in 2 Timothy 2:20-21, “But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.”

Before the Lord could use a person as His earthly vessel of honour to speak the oracles of God demonstrated with signs & wonders, displaying the tangible manifest presence of His glory for the world, God has to purify His earthly vessel.

The fire of God surged through me for almost three years to cleanse, refine and purify me to prepare my readiness.

When I stood at the pulpit to preach the gospel for the first time, the fire of God came down and swept through the entire congregation. In less than 10 minutes, there were hardly anyone left sober to listen to my preaching. Almost all were in the spirit and even my interpreter was thrown down to the floor, trembling under the power of the Lord. 

Then, the Lord spoke to me that if we desire the words of our mouth to carry His power to speak the oracles of God with signs & wonders, our mouth must belong to Him.

What is the purpose of the Fire?

God is a consuming fire (Exodus 24:17, Deuteronomy 4:24, Hebrews 12:29). The presence of His consuming fire (Malachi 3:2-4, Zechariah 13:9) will consume us to burn away:-

- the dross in our lives

- the dross of wrong purposes and motivations, leaving behind a concentrated focus on the things of God.

- our works and motives that is contrary to God’s purpose in our life.

- unnecessary desires of life, leaving behind the one burning desire that God wants us to accomplish as we serve Him.

- resistance that the enemy puts in our way that prevents us from proclaiming God’s message.

- resistance, doubt/unbelief and fear.

His consuming fire also:-

- free us from bondages 

- break down the mind

 - manifest Jesus - Christ in us (Colossians 1:27, "Christ in us, the hope of glory"); and

 - made us into a pure perfect vessel. 


After we go through the fire, we will be a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17, "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come”). The fire of God will transform believers from lukewarm to on fire for Him, and obedience to do the will of the Father which is the key to holiness and the mark of a true disciple of Jesus Christ ... Sonship.


To Him be glory for ever and ever. Amen!
