In this service, Apostle Edmonds taught on keeping your fire as he continued with the message series "FIGHT FOR LOVE". He said our fire starts from our tongue. We should allow our words and works to match. If we being the salt of the earth, lose our taste, what hope does the other people of the world will have? As you fight for love, know about the fire. Listen to the above audio for full message.
From the book of Revelation 3v15, we learn two things. The devil makes you feel like you don’t amount anything to Jesus. The devil makes you feel like Jesus is righteous and you are not. He makes you feel you are not like Jesus but thank God to courses like BTS that exposes devil and tears him down. The Lord himself said to write this letter (Revelation chapter 3) and send it to Laodicea and tell them that “you are neither cold nor hot and if you remain this way, I’ll spew you out of my mouth”. So, we are in the mouth of Jesus Christ. We should not speak anything anyhow because if we speak, it will come to pass. The mouth of Jesus is powerful. Those who talk quickly anyhow, you have to wake up. You must wake up to the fact who you are. You call your wife prostitute and call people by names? It is scary to hear you talk like that. Are you saved? How could you love like Jesus and speak like Lucifer? It is contradiction. We should allow our words and actions to match. It is important to control your mouth. In the book of James, the bible says with a small rudder, a big ship is controlled. And so, your small tongue will also control your life. Your tongue is a fire. What are you using your fire for? When you get saved, everything including your mouth must get saved.
When God took His people from Egypt, a land of slavery to the land that flows with milk and honey, it was a mixed multitude. But in the wilderness, situations filtered everyone. In the same way, you were saved, and so, this mouth of yours must also be saved. Do you know what it means not to speak bad words? You are living in your destiny! You are manifesting the life of God that you received! That is what it means. We are the salt of the earth. If we being salt of the earth, lose our taste, what hope does the earth have? Nothing – darkness, doom…The Lord can train you to the extent that you won’t allow any idle or evil words to come out of your mouth. Your tongue would be so tamed to speak life.
How could you ask God to bless you with the same mouth that you used to curse you loved ones? You are using your fire in a wrong way. This way, you will burn in the forest of your destiny. In the book of James chapter three, the bible says if you can control your tongue, you are matured. Your fire starts from your tongue.
Hebrews 12v28,29 – Our root is from Yahweh. He is the one who gave us the breath of life. And that is the breath of the fire. You are the sons of fire. Nothing can work in this fire because this is a consuming fire. Only pure things can enter into this fire like crystal, gold etc and remain the same. As you realize that your tongue is where the fire starts from and you come from a village of fire, carry yourself differently. As you fight for your loved ones, know that the fire always wins! Fire is vehement, powerful. Nothing can argue with fire. The Bible says we are the flames of fire (2 Corinthians 5v17-20). Our God is a consuming fire (Hebrews 1v5-9). So, when you are fighting for your loved ones, know one thing that no one successfully fights against fire. Now that you have come to know who you are, keep your flame.
Don’t use your flame wrongly. It is sad to think of certain people whose flame has gone down. In the book of Revelation, the bible says “you are neither hot nor cold, so I will be spew you out of my mouth”. We should not be like that. Use your fire properly. We must use the fire to provide for those, who have nothing. We must use the fire to love those, who are rejected etc. The last flame of fire is also fire only. So, we must burn for Jesus, for the Kingdom of God. When you set something ablaze, it looks it is normal, but when fire keeps burning there are changes on that thing. When you start to use your fire, it looks like nothing is happening but if you keep on burning, it will happen in the name of Jesus. Keep your fire burning. This fire that He made us must light up the churches around us.
