Holy Fire

Luke 8:26-39

Jesus baptizes with the Holy Spirit and fire (Lk 3.16). The Holy Spirit comes on people as tongues of fire (Ac 2.3). Jesus’ eyes blaze like fire (Rev 1.14). Ministering angels are described as flames of fire (Heb 1.7). God is described as a consuming fire (Heb 12.29). When we pray for healing we experience fire-like heat in the hands. People that are demonized sometimes shrink back when we extend our hands to heal. I wonder what demons see when believers lay hands! I wouldn’t be surprised if it was something similar to the picture above. In Scripture fire represents God’s glory on the good and God’s judgement on the bad. The fire of the Holy Spirit is a problem for evil spirits. More
