“O LORD, You induced me, and I was persuaded; You are stronger than I, and have prevailed. I am in derision daily; Everyone mocks me. For when I spoke, I cried out; I shouted, “Violence and plunder!”Because the word of the LORD was made to me A reproach and a derision daily. Then I said, “I will not make mention of Him, Nor speak anymore in His name.” But His word was in my heart like a burning fire Shut up in my bones; I was weary of holding it back, And I could not.” Jeremiah 20:7-9
This was the biblical passage where the theme "Fire Shut Up in My Bones" was born from, and which identifies many of the pastors in assistance, pastors who wanted to give up and not continue in the ministry. However, that night the Holy Spirit placed a fire in them that will now make them keep moving forward just as what happened with the prophet Jeremiah.
Burn in fire for God and the multitudes will come to watch you burn" catch the fire and others will love to come and watch you burn in that fire" phrases that pastor Ricardo gave to the thousands of pastors, calling them to catch the fire so that when they brought it back to their nations, a revival would start with fire from the Holy Spirit.
Jeremiah the prophet didnt want to keep preaching anymore but there was a burning fire shut up in his bones, an irresistible fire and it was this same fire that the Holy Spirit poured out that night overeveryone. However there are two reasons how this fire can be lost:
- When the first love is lost.
- When the anointing is lost.
Revive the gift of God that is in you" this means that if you stopped burning, light up that fire in yourheart once more. It is necessary to maintain the fire, burn in passion for Him and keep the anointing. Itsnot enough to be burning, you also need to make sure that there is enough oil (anointing) to maintain it.
It is necessary to keep the fire from four things that can turn it off:
- Persons that criticize and turn the flame off.
- Passions of the flesh.
- Busyness, even within the ministry.
How to light up that fire?
- In God’s presence .
- Fellowship with the anointed.
- Worship, spending time in spiritual hymns.
Don’t stop burning, if you have lit that flame again, burn in passion for God and let your cry to Him be
Lord, come back and light that fire in me
