The "Fire Anointing" and It's Purpose / 圣火的恩膏及其目的

The Fire Baptism is a very precious gift from God. Many of us are baptized with the Holy Spirit, speak in tongues, and lay hands on the sick. Unless you experience the Fire baptism, you may take a very long time to reach the fullness of the power & glory of God. We need to be baptized with Fire as to allow God to refine and purify us (Matthew 3:11, Luke 3:16).

What is the purpose of the Fire?
God is a consuming fire (Exodus 24:17, Deuteronomy 4:24, Hebrews 12:29). The presence of God will consume us to burn away:-

- Our works and motives that is contrary to God’s purpose in our life.
- The dross of wrong purposes and motivations, leaving behind a concentrated focus on the things of God.
- Unnecessary desires of life, leaving behind the one burning desire that God wants you to accomplish as you serve Him.
- Resistance that the enemy puts in your way that prevents you from proclaiming God’s message.
- Resistance, doubt/unbelief and fear.

The refining fire is to prepare us for a service. Only after going through the refining & purifying process, can God then fills us with the fullness of His power & glory or ministering fire anointing to be purified channel to bless His people. As in Isaiah 60:1-2“… but the Lord rises upon you and His glory appears over you” and in Verse 5, “Then you will look and be radiant, your heart will throb and swell with joy.”

David Herzog wrote, "If you try to cast away darkness but you yourself are not full of light, chances are it will take a long time to do it. When you are full of the glory of God, often one word from God will expel the darkness."

You will be amazed what the Fire of God can do to transform a person’s life. The fire will draw our hearts back to our first love – Jesus.

Zechariah 13:9, "This third I will bring into the fire; I will refine them silver and test them like gold. They will call on my name and I will answer them; I will say, they are my people, and they will say, 'The Lord is our God.'"

Ezekiel 11:19-20, The Lord says, “I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them; I will remove from them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh. Then they will follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. They will be my people, and I will be their God.

Touch by the Fire of God, life changed. The person would be transformed from an ordinary lukewarm Christian to a new man on zeal and fire for God. It is amazing, the fruit that we can witness of such great transformation of a person's life.

Saul’s encounter with the (fire) light on the road to Damascus instantly & completely changed his direction from persecuting the Church to defending the gospel to his dying days (Acts 9:3). Prior to the encounter, Saul had no genuine knowledge of God.

When the fire of God falls, so too does the anointing of God. The anointing fire is the one God uses to commission his people into the work He has for them. The anointing of the Holy Spirit can be felt. You can feel the anointing as it comes upon you and enables you to do things that you cannot do in your own strength. The anointing is the empowering presence of God.

At CKRM, the Fire of the Holy Spirit has blessed and empowered many believers with spiritual gifts, enhancing their sensitiveness to the leading of the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:14), and sharpening their seeing & hearing senses (Proverbs 20:12). Many were also healed and set free from bondages.

Many of those who were swept by the fire of God, experienced the burning sensation with powerful anointing, activating their gifts like the 'Roar' of the Lion of Judah and prophetic gifts. Many Christians were being empowered and some within a relatively short period began to minister powerfully in 'miraculous, signs & wonders.'

The following gifts are used powerfully to bless many believers at CKRM and it is just amazing & awesome to witness the new things that God is doing (Isaiah 43:19):-

Fire Anointing or Baptism of Fire (Matthew 3:11, Luke 3:16)
The 'Roar' of the Lion of Judah (Amos 1:2, 3:8, Rev. 5:5, 10:3)
The Watchman (Isaiah 56:10, Ezekiel 3:17)
The Flying Arrows (Habakkuk 3:11, Psalm 18:14, 2 Samuel 22:15))
The Lightning of the Flashing Spear (Habakkuk 3:11)
The Rays Flashed From His Hand (Habakkuk 3:4)
Jesus Eyes like Blazing Fire (Revelation 1:14)
Water changed to Wine (John 2:9)
Laughter - Joy of the Lord (Nehemiah 8:10, Psalm 126:2, Luke 10:21)
The Wind (Acts 2:2)
The Thunder (Psalm 29:3, Revelation 10:3)
The Lightning (2 Samuel 22:15, Job 36:22)
Drunk in the Spirit (Ephesians 5:18)
Dance & Sing in the Spirit (Colossians 3:16, 2 Sam. 6:14, Jeremiah 31:4)
The Net (Ezekiel 19:8, 32:3, Matthew 13:47)
Writing on the Wall (Daniel 5:5)
Drink the Heavenly Rain (Deuteronomy 32:2, Job 29:23, Isaiah 45:8, Hosea 6:3)
The Hammer (Jeremiah 23:29)
The Sling and Stone (1 Samuel 17:50)
The Arsenal (Jeremiah 50:25)

"Jesus did many other miraculous signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book" (John 20:30) and He said “anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father’ (John 14:12).

God comes to purge our sin. Thus, if you desire to be blessed, please come with open heart and ask our Heavenly Father to "Consume me with your fire. Please examine me and to show me the errors of my way. I want to be more like you, God. I want your convictions. I want your heart. I want to be more like you more than anything else.” Amen!

Start seeking God if you desire the anointing. Pay the price and carry the cross. Put God first above everything. As the Lord says, "Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know" (Jeremiah 33:3).

圣火的恩膏及其目的 (中文翻译由中国Sarah Shan博士完成)

“火洗”是神所赐的一种宝贵恩赐。很多人经历过“圣灵的洗”,说方言,手按病人。但除非经历火洗,否则你会花费相当长的时间达到神所赐予的全备能力和荣耀。我们需要经历火洗,让神来炼净我们,达到纯洁(太 3:11, 路 3:16).。

圣火的目的是什么?

我们的神乃是烈火(出 24:17, 申 4:24, 来 12:29)。神的同在会将我们的不洁焚烧净尽。

-我们的工作和动机中,与神对我们生命旨意相违背的东西

-不以神的事为焦点的错误目的和动机

-生命中一些不必要的愿望,不是神要你实现的服事目标

-仇敌放在你路上的阻挡你传扬神信息的拦阻

-抗拒、怀疑/不信和惧怕

这淬炼之火是为了预备我们来服事神。只有经过炼净,神才能用祂丰富的能力、荣耀及用于服事的圣火恩膏来充满我们,使我们成为祝福祂百姓的纯洁管道。以赛亚书60章1-2节,“……耶和华却要显现照耀你,他的荣耀要现在你身上….”,第5节“那时你看见就有光荣,你心又跳动,又宽畅。”

David Herzog写道,“如果你想赶走黑暗,而你自己尚未被光充满,你很可能要费很长时间去做。但当你被神的荣耀充满,通常用一句来自神的话就足以赶走黑暗”。

你可能会惊愕于神的火是如何能够翻转一个人的生命。这火会使我们的心转向我们起初的爱——耶稣。

撒迦利亚书13章9节,“我要使这三分之一经火,熬炼他们,如熬炼银子,试炼他们,如试炼金子。他们必求告我的名,我必应允他们。我要说,这是我的子民。他们也要说,耶和华是我们的神。”

以西结书11章19-20节,“我要使他们有合一的心,也要将新灵放在他们里面,又从他们肉体中除掉石心,赐给他们肉心,使他们顺从我的律例,谨守遵行我的典章。他们要作我的子民,我要作他们的神。”

当你被神的火触摸,你的生命会改变,会从一个不冷不热地基督徒转变成一个为神火热的人。我们能见到一个人生命巨大翻转的果子,真是何等惊奇。

扫罗在大马士革的路上遇见大光,立刻被完全翻转,从逼迫教会转变为福音战士直到死。(徒9:3)。 遇到神之前,扫罗对神并没有真正的认识。

当神的火降下,神的恩膏也会赐下。神使用恩膏之火来差派祂百姓进入祂呼召他们去做的工作。圣灵的恩膏可以感觉得到。当恩膏加在你身上时,你能感觉到,并使你有能力去完成凭 自己天然力量无法完成的工作。恩膏是神同在的能力。

在CKRM, 圣灵的火祝福和装备了很多信徒,赐给他们属灵恩赐,提升他们对圣灵引导的敏感度(罗 8:14),增强他们属灵视觉和听觉(箴 20:12)。很多人也得到医治释放。

很多被神的火席卷的人经历到被强烈恩膏的燃烧感觉,他们的恩赐被启动,如犹大狮子吼、预言恩赐等。很多基督徒被圣灵能力装备,一些在短时间内以神迹奇事的能力开始服事。

以下列举出在CKRM被大大用来祝福信徒的恩赐。 目睹我们的神所行的新事(Isaiah 43:19),真是奇妙可畏。

圣火恩膏或火洗(太 3:11, 路 3:16):

犹大狮子吼(摩 1:2, 3:8, 启. 5:5, 10:3)牧羊狗的灵-守望者(赛 56:10, 结 3:17)

飞箭(哈 3:11, 诗18:14, 撒下 22:15)

闪光的枪(哈 3:11)

祂手中射出的光线(哈 3:4)

耶稣的眼目如火焰(启 1:14)

水变酒(约 2:9)

喜笑-主的喜乐(尼 8:10, 诗 126:2, 路10:21)

风(徒 2:2)

雷(诗29:3, 启 10:3)

闪电(撒下 22:15, 伯 36:22)

圣灵中沉醉 (弗 5:18)

灵歌灵舞(西 3:16, 撒下. 6:14, 耶 31:4)

网(西 19:8, 32:3, 太 13:47)

墙上写字(但 5:5)

饮用属天的雨(申32:2, 伯29:23, 赛 45:8, 何 6:3)

大锤(耶 23:29)

机弦甩石(撒上 17:50)

神的武库(耶 50:25)

“耶稣在门徒面前,另外行了许多神迹,没有记在这书上。”(约 20:30),祂说:“我实实在在地告诉你们,我所作的事,信我的人也要作。并且要作比这更大的事。因为我往父那里去。” (约 14:12)

神来除尽我们的罪。因此,如果你渴望被祝福,请以敞开的心祈求我们的天父:“用你的火炼净我,请鉴查我,指示我路中的错误。我要更多像你,父神,我要你的心意,我要你的心,我要爱你超过其他任何事。”阿门!

如果你渴慕恩膏,现在就开始寻求神。付上代价、背起十字架。把神放在第一位,在一切之上。 如主所说:“你求告我,我就应允你,并将你所不知道,又大又难的事指示你。” (耶 33:3)

Hi, Ps Paul, How to pray for Baptism of Fire individually at our own house? It's because not every church or even charismatic church believe there is another gift of 'fire anointing'. How to experience this Fire Anointing in our own house and how to freely give to others? thanks

Paul Ang said...

Hi Thomas,
Few experience the Baptism of Fire unless God has a special calling for them. Fire is to set & consecrate the person apart for a ministry that God has called him. Do seek Him if you do desire it.

Paul Ang said...

Hi Thomas,

Concerning your last question, we can only give to others what we have. For example, if someone asks us for a $50 note and if we don't have this $50 note in our pocket, then we can't give what we don't have.

Thomas Ong said...

Amen. It's correct that we can't give what we don't have. Can you pray for the impartation of fire over me? yes, of course I will seek Him who is the giver of all gift. Thanks :)

Paul Ang said...

Dear Thomas,
If you are in Singapore, come and soak in God's presence at CKRM on any Saturday 3-7 pm. Many people have been blessed during the meeting.

Thomas Ong said...

I'll pray about it. I am from KL, Malaysia. :)

Dear Thomas,

I visit your blog. Read the miracle of weight loss by David Herzog. By His grace, we saw a lady instantly lost weight in the full view of the congregation at CKRM. View http://www.ckrm.org/testimonials14.html

Thomas Ong said...

wow, God is great. we see 'Instant Weight Loss' supernaturally. Do you know will God perform 'Instant Weight Gain'? Those who are too slim and want to be strong in body need it.

Paul Ang said...

Hi Thomas,
A lady at CKRM wanted a more chubby look with more fat on her face. The Lord gave her the gift of 'Blowing' (Isaiah 40:7 & 24, John 20:22). When she blew, she looked chubby. Blowing is also a powerful gift of the Spirit. Last Saturday, she blew a 'Fire' gift onto a lady and the lady received the gift. You may call me any Wednesday between 5-6 pm if you need prayer, as for your desire - The Baptism of Fire.

Thomas Ong said...

WOW, I am really excited and amazed for what's God has done by reading your blog, and Victor gal blog! This is what suppose every 'normal' Christian should experienced! The supernatural become natural because we are the Children of Supernatural God, the Son of God! We can see a glimpse of the answered prayer of churches since 2K ago, 'Your Kingdom Come. Your will be done..' It's sad to say that most of church in this region didn't experience what the church supposed to experience. Yes, I would like the prayer of impartation of fire and also prayer of healing for my love one! Is it this number Tel: (65) 6738 4313?? thanks (can I call in the time of 6pm to 7pm?, if not, it's ok...)

Paul Ang said...

Dear Thomas,
The tel numbers are correct. If you cannot make the call between 5-6, you may call me at around 7.30 pm.

Janice said...

Dear Pastor Paul, I chance into ur website and am very interested to know and experience more about walking in the spirit and the fire baptism. Can you also pray for me for an impartation of fire. Can I call you too? Thanks, Janice.

Paul Ang said...

Dear Janice,

Are you in Malaysia or Singapore? If you are, please visit our empowerment ministries in Singapore, Malacca, Banting or Klang.

Blessings,
Ps Paul

I have received this beautiful baptism of His fire approximately a year ago. Since this time, God has moved me and my husband to another church, I think.?? I love God with everything that I am and the supernatural ways of God, but I haven't been seeing them like I used to, it's been a very long dry season. What I would ask of you, if you would, please pray for my husband and myself, and see if you receive a word from God. Bless you, and thank you for your postings, I thank God for men like you who believe "all things are possible." Love, Cathy

Thomas Ong said...

Praise the Lord, CKRM Klang Divine Healing Ministry was commenced on September 2009! Amaze how God directed me to Ps Paul's blog - Fire Anointing and received the empowerment, and now leading CKRM Klang Ministry as what the Lord has put in my heart few years ago to set up healing ministry!

In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit. See the link below for more
