Gospel Distribution Ministry,
This part-2 talks on Holy Ghost Fire of God and how He will use it to prepare the saints for the rapture. If you want the complete series to be shipped to you, please send some offering for mailing. Each part is a 16-pages booklet. The Lord is coming soon! Remember the revival is to set the saints' eyes looking up for the Lord's coming! Therefore prepare for the rapture!
"THE CHARIOTS OF GOD ARE TWENTY THOUSANDS, EVEN THOUSANDS OF ANGELS. THE LORD IS AMONG THEM AS IN SINAI, IN THE HOLY PLACE. THOU HAST ASCENDED ON HIGH, THOU HAST LED CAPTIVITY CAPTIVE, THOU HAST RECEIVED GIFTS FOR MEN, YEA FOR THE REBELLIOUS ALSO, THAT THE LORD GOD MIGHT DWELL AMONG THEM" (Psa.68:17-20). "And Elisha prayed and said, Lord, I pray thee, open his eyes that he may see. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha"(2Kgs. 6:17). The ministry of Enoch who was translated into heaven that he should not see death was not much known. However we can learn from Elijah's recorded translation. Close to the time that Elijah would be taken up in translation, he was peculiarly associated with the supernatural fire of God. Why is this? Dear Reader, the time is near! The chariots are already nigh! Prepare for the rapture!

BEHOLD I COME QUICKLY!"IN MY FATHER'S HOUSE ARE MANY MANSIONS, IF IT WERE NOT SO I WOULD HAVE TOLD YOU. I GO TO PREPARE A PLACE FOR YOU; AND IF I GO AND PREPARE A PLACE FOR YOU, I WILL COME AGAIN, AND RECEIVE YOU UNTO MYSELF; THAT WHERE I AM, THERE YE MAY BE ALSO" (Jn.14:2,3).
"By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found because God had translated him; for before his translation, he had this testimony, that he pleased God" (Heb.11:5). How did he do it? Not much known! However we can learn from Elijah's recorded translation. Close to the time that Elijah would be taken up in translation, he was peculiarly associated with the supernatural fire of God. Why is this? He called down fire on the sacrifice on Mt. Carmel; he sent bolts of fire consecutively upon two companies of soldiers that came to arrest him. Also in the new testament after the Lord Jesus ascended, he showed himself to Saul of Tarsus on the road to Damascus in a ball of fire with a blinding light. Christ is also baptizing believers with the Holy Ghost and fire!Yea, to go in the rapture you must be conversant with the fire of God!
CHARIOTS OF FIRE!"I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but he that cometh after me .... shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire" (Mat.3:11). What do you think baptism of fire is? Some can talk of "trials of life" as fire which also can purify someone. But what I want to discuss is that the Lord often manifested to the prophets of old testament in variety of forms and mostly accompanied with something they described as fire; (For instance, the burning bush before Moses, on Mt. Sinai before the Israelites, and before Ezekiel). In Ezekiel 1:26-27, the prophet described the manifestation of God. He said "AND UPON THE LIKENESS OF THE THRONE WAS THE LIKENESS AS THE APPEARANCE OF A MAN ABOVE UPON IT; AND I SAW AS THE COLOUR OF AMBER, AS THE APPEARANCE OF FIRE ROUND ABOUT WITHIN IT, FROM THE APPEARANCE OF HIS LOINS EVEN UPWARD; AND FROM THE APPEARANCE OF HIS LOINS EVEN DOWNWARD, I SAW AS IT WERE THE APPEARANCE OF FIRE, AND IT HAD BRIGHTNESS ROUND ABOUT". If I ask you what fire looks like you might say "reddish or yellowish and flaming". There is action inside fire that we call "flames". Internal flames! Our God is a consuming fire! Remember also Moses said he wanted to see God. God told him "there shall no man see me and live" (Ex.33:20). However God told him he would let him see his backside after he had passed by. Moses said he trembled and quake. The radiation of light (fire) from God's body was so intense! Imagine any of us looking directly at the sun on a sunny day, even at the distance the sun is to the earth, we cannot look at it with naked eyes, yet God can be brighter than the sun when he manifests. I'm laying this foundation so that you can see why God wants to baptize us with the Holy Ghost and fire. He reserved the revelation of his plan for the endtime believers whom He promised to exalt to his throne (Rev.3:17-19; Rev.12:5). How can we sit with him on that throne unless we also are turned into little lamps of fire? No wonder He said: "THE SINNERS IN ZION ARE AFRAID; FEARFULNESS HAS SURPRISED THE HYPOCRITES. WHO AMONG US SHALL DWELL WITH THE DEVOURING FIRE? WHO AMONG US SHALL DWELL WITH EVERLASTING BURNINGS? HE THAT WALKETH RIGHTEOUSLY AND SPEAKETH UPRIGHTLY". (Isa.33:14-16).
We all say we are going to heaven to sit with Jesus, to walk with Jesus. But when Jesus manifested to Apostle John after his glorification John wrote that "His countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength". That was even reduced intensity of the radiation that comes from the body of the Lord. (Rev.1:16). You can see why God has to specially prepare us to be able to live with him. God has to shed all his glory to come to this world. Then if we are going to meet him where he is, as said in the book of revelation (Rev.21:3) which says that God will dwell with men and we will see him, we must also be changed to glow as he glows. This is the whole essence why he is baptizing us with the Holy Ghost and with fire.(Rev.1:16) "HIS COUNTENANCE WAS AS THE SUN SHINETH IN HIS STRENGTH". We are talking of supernatural fire. However this same supernatural fire can burn anything. Remember the drama between Elijah the prophet and the Baal prophets (1Kgs.18:36-39). When Elijah called down God's supernatural fire, the fire not only consumed the sacrifice but also consumed the water all around. Whereas natural fire will be put out by water. This supernatural fire can protect, and can also destroy. Remember also the three hebrew children in Babylon when they were thrown into the furnace of fire by king Nebuchadnezzar (Dan.3:26-28). God could have simply put his own fire around the men and they were not hurt by the natural fire. In Acts.26, Apostle Paul described the light he saw on the way to Damascus: like a glowing ball of fire. In verse 13 : "AT MIDDAY O KING I SAW A LIGHT FROM HEAVEN BRIGHTER THAN THE SUN". It's like the sun was brought closer to Paul; that was why they fell down, and he was blinded by the light. We know it was Jesus that manifested because he heard a voice from inside the light that said "I'M JESUS WHOM THOU PERSECUTED!" The Lord can intensify the light from his body when he manifests. He can also reduce the intensity so that you'll see him as natural, anytime he wants. THAT IS THE FINAL STATE OF THE LORD JESUS' BODY AND THAT WILL BE THE FINAL STATE OF BELIEVERS WHO OVERCOME. "When he shall appear we shall be like him" (1 Jn. 3:1). He is going to turn us into such balls of light (or call it balls of fire) when we are about to be raptured.
SCIENCE LOOKS FOR IT!"THINGS THAT ARE SEEN WERE NOT MADE OF THINGS WHICH DO APPEAR" (Heb.11:3)
Note that in science, Light is classified as "electromagnetic wave" with visible wavelength. In the rapture the Lord may translate believers into invisible wavelength and we will simply disappear. Science already knows that if there is a power to change "particle" to "wave" and viceversa non-destructively, man will be able to overcome gravity and travel in space. God holds that power, and Jesus promised it to believers at this endtime (1 Thes.4:16-17). Light itself is electromagnetic wave like the radio wave that brings the radio signals to your receiver invisibly.In quantum Physics, Scientists know that when materials are excited with higher energy, the atoms are raised from one energy level to another. At the new level they may display a different characteristic, like a glow in fluorescent lamps. The atoms in the human body are therefore in one energy level at rest in the body. With proper combination of energy (unknown to human) and excitation, the energy levels of the atoms can be raised to a level whereby they glow like lamp or disappear into invisibility. God definitely is in another energy level and a different frequency platform. For man to move close to him at that level, man will be burnt. Therefore He has to raise our energy level to a stage wherein He can accomodate human. Therefore, the need for baptism with the Holy Ghost and fire. It is the plan of God to make we human beings in these earthen vessels, inhabiting this physical universe, to traverse back and forth between the two worlds of the physical and the spiritual, while our home is in the physical; this is demonstrated by the Lord Jesus Christ- the first begotten of the Father.
"FOR THUS SAITH THE LORD THAT CREATED THE HEAVENS; GOD HIMSELF THAT FORMED THE EARTH AND MADE IT; HE HATH ESTABLISHED IT, HE CREATED IT NOT IN VAIN, HE FORMED IT TO BE INHABITED" (Isa.45:18). "The righteous shall inherit the earth" (Psa.37:29).When Jesus manifests into our realm, that is when he changes from invisible (waves) into visible "particle" and we can see him with our physical eyes and touch him. Unlike the spirits, he can eat our bread when in this realm because he has a body. Remember after Christ ressurrected and he appeared to the disciples (in Lk.24:39), He told the disciples to "handle me and see that a spirit has not flesh and bones as ye see me have". That is the final state of believers when we will have the power inside us to appear and disappear and travel in the universe at the speed of our thought. Our thought will turn us into light waves and we'll travel at the speed of light. "BEHOLD WHAT MANNER OF LOVE THE FATHER HAS BESTOWED UPON US THAT WE SHOULD BE CALLED THE SONS OF GOD: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and IT DOES NOT YET APPEAR WHAT WE SHALL BE;BUT WE KNOW THAT WHEN HE SHALL APPEAR WE SHALL BE LIKE HIM; FOR WE SHALL SEE HIM AS HE IS. And everyman that has this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure". (1 Jn.3:1-3). Our body is simply like a filament as in an electric bulb. When the Holy Ghost in us turn the switch, our body will simply glow like the electric bulb and when the Holy Ghost fires, we will go up. That is the originality of matter. The power of God can generate any frequency in the spectrum whether in the form of invisible xray or visible light. This is why angels can be in this room and we won't see them. As written, He is changing us "FROM GLORY UNTO GLORY" unto the image of the son of God. Therefore there is a lot of preparation to be made in our flesh.
"AS WE HAVE BORNE THE IMAGE OF THE EARTHY, WE SHALL ALSO BEAR THE IMAGE OF THE HEAVENLY"; "BEHOLD I SHOW YOU A MYSTERY, WE SHALL NOT ALL SLEEP, BUT WE SHALL ALL BE CHANGED" (1Cor.15:49-53).The preparation for this change is what Christ has to build in each of us. This is why he baptizes the believers in the Holy Ghost and fire which is the begining of this preparation. We are to cooperate with the Spirit of God so that he can do the work in our system to arrive at a fixed body through which the wonders are to flow. The scripture says "faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God". Understanding and believing this should make you pray right, and as Christ said "PRAY THAT YOU MAY BE ACCOUNTED WORTHY". Also it says "we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed". When we are changed from physical particles to light waves, then do we become immortal. Yet the bible said it will be "from glory unto glory".
The wavefront:I said faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God. Do you realize that when fishes swim in the sea they still see? Even so, if we are turned into the electromagnetic wave, as an intelligence, we will see where we are going. Now suppose you come to the wall of a house where the doors are locked. Since humans are "used to" being turned back by such physical obstacle, our faith must surpass the stage whereby we "think" of such physical entities as "no obstacles" at all, and we must walk through it (as demonstrated by the Lord Jesus in Jn.20:26). The Lord has to bring us to such heights of faith before he turns on the switch for us to glow, lest we get stucked by our fear of obstacles. There is a "wavefront" in electromagnetism, and of course there is also reverse propagation. Remember "two men shall be in one bed, the one taken the other left". When taken he has to pass through the roof! (Lk.17:34). "BEHOLD WE SPEAK THE WISDOM OF GOD IN A MYSTERY, EVEN THE HIDDEN WISDOM, WHICH GOD ORDAINED BEFORE THE WORLD UNTO OUR GLORY" (1 Cor.2:7).
Continuing..We have showed from the scriptures that God manifested to the prophets at several instances in a form accompanied by supernatural fire. Those verses show that indeed "our God is a consuming fire".(Heb.12:29) When the book of revelation described the Lord Jesus' manifestation that "his head and his hair as white as snow.." that shows a glowing white light manifestation. When it mentioned his countenance, it was talking about the 'heat' that emanates from his body. When we look at the sun at that distance, we see the light from it, but there is something else "radiation" that does not allow us to look at it with our naked eyes. The countenance is refering to the radiation that is emanating from him. We have said all of the above to lay a foundation of whom our God is. John the baptist said, Jesus, who was to come after him will baptize us with Holy Ghost and with fire. He also said "he will burn the chaff with unquenchable fire". That implies, this same fire in which God manifested, is what he will use to destroy the devil in the lake of fire (everlasting fire) (Mat.3:11-12). It's the same eternal supernatural fire that God will use to destroy the devils and demons. Then you will realize that some sparks of the fire of God, right now, when sent against the demons that torments the human body, will make those demons run off. When people are saved and are to be baptized in the Holy Ghost, the Lord sends a measure of his supernatural sparks of fire into the believer's body to first drive out infirm spirits. That will not be all. That is just the begining. On the day of Pentecost, they described what they saw also as "tongues of fire". (Acts.2:1-3). They called it "tongues" because they looked like individual flames. They said it's like as of fire, shows that it must have warmth or heat associated with it for the disciples to call it fire. Many Ministers can testify that when they are under the anointing of the Lord during ministration, they usually feel a warmth or heat all over their body. That is because our God, who is a consuming fire, moves in closer to the minister. This literature is to make you realize what God wants to accomplish in you so that you can submit to the Holy Spirit and be baptized in the Holy Ghost. Then you will start a process with him whereby the Holy Ghost can begin to change you from glory unto glory.
In a vision one time I saw myself standing, and a part of my body in that vision was glowing like a pillar of fire. When I curiously looked on, wondering what happened to me the spirit turned it off. Then the Lord gave me this revelation which I have described to you in a nutshell that "our final state as believers in Christ is to be made like unto his glorified body, glowing balls of lamp from within". Yea long for this, for therein is immortality which Adam lost in the garden.Very close to the time of the rapture, people will look at the believer that is going up and will frequently see a beautiful change in his body. One will see you and comment: "You look so fresh and beautiful in your face some minutes ago", or "I thought you are always skinny, but you look personable and beautiful right now". Yea they are begining to see the glory of God radiating through you for the spirit in us will begin to try out the glow; soon we shall permanently disappear in glowing rays. Yea, this is prophecy!
"..This mortal must put on immortality" (1Cor.15:53)Immortality will be put on when we are fully changed from this physical particle into glowing light like Jesus Christ manifested. This is glorious! Even now we, believers, can call for the fire of God like Elijah did; the Lord discharged it at Elijah's bidding. Remember I said the eternal fire which God manifested is what He will use to destroy the devils in the end. Right now He simply uses some sparks from himself to drive out infirm spirits from believers. I experienced this when I was baptized in the Holy Ghost and fire. It was like electrocution from thin air at the presence of the Holy Ghost.
