• Hi Guest!

    You may be aware that "big tech" has been aggressively censoring conservatives on Twitter, Facebook, Google, Instagram, YouTube and other social media platforms. This is tyrannical and suppressive towards Christians and conservatives.

    Please share Talk Jesus community on every platform you have to give conservatives an outlet and safe community to be apart of.

Fresh Fire?

Fresh Fire?

Is there really such a thing as the “fresh” fire of heaven? Can fire have a sell-by date? Can it become stale? Can the fires in God’s heart flicker wearily and need stirring up? I cannot imagine anything like that! It would be totally out of character for God.

The fire of heaven cannot be second-rate, second hand, worn out; its quality cannot fade. God has only one kind of fire – fire that is always just as if it had been freshly lit, its flames leaping brightly. The fires of God’s heart do not grow tired; God is never old and bored. He never makes do with yesterday’s fire, settling for something shoddy, less than the best.

We need to understand that to talk about God is to talk about fire.

The Psalmist wrote, “Fire goes before him” (Psalm 97:3) – fire announces his presence like a trumpet call and flames leap up as the ground trembles under his feet. But more than that – “our God is a consuming fire” (Hebrews 12:29).

Instead of indicating “fresh fire”, however, this stresses the ongoing, eternal nature of God’s temperament: a fire that never stops burning.
