Topic: Beware Of Strange Fire!
Daily Declarations: The great hand of God is moving and renewing things in my life. The LORD is causing a shaking and pressing in the spirit that is settling things physically for me. My testimony is certain and nothing can truncate it. God has settled me in all areas no more waiting or tarrying without manifestation of promises. The King of kings is alive in me and He is causing divine ability to work wonders over my life. I am blessed and favoured each and everyday. I can never be disadvantaged in Jesus’ name. Amen!
Memorize: And Nadab and Abihu died, when they offered strange fire before the LORD. – Numbers 26:61
Read: Hebrews 13:8-13 (KJV)
8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
9 Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein.
10 We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat which serve the tabernacle.
11 For the bodies of those beasts, whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned without the camp.
12 Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.
13 Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach
In the physical realm, there are different types of fire used for varying constructive or destructive purposes.
This is also true in the spiritual realm where fire could be godly or ungodly, constructive or destructive. The Holy Spirit is the source of godly fire.
Samson tearing a lion apart in Judges 14:5-6 is a classic example of what you can do when the Spirit kindles godly fire inside you. When He kindles fire in you, supernatural power comes and you are able to overcome your enemies. On the other hand, an ungodly fire produces a desire to perform acts (or an act) that negates God’s will and commandments. It destroys completely. It can also be an ungodly act in itself as we see in the case of Nadab and Abihu who died because they offered strange fire before the Lord.
“And Nadab and Abihu died, when they offered strange fire before the LORD.” Numbers 26:61
The ungodly fire made Samson go after strange women. It destroyed him. Some years ago, one of my spiritual sons was confronted with a strange fire of erotic emotions with his secretary. He sought spiritual counsel from me and I told him plainly to sack her immediately. He did and the strange fire was quenched. When you allow strange fire to grow, it will destroy. This is why the Lord wants you to beware of strange fire.
Strange fire could be unbiblical worship. For example, an intending couple should not spend nights together alone in the name of prayer vigil. It is strange fire when a lady comes to minister at the altar with sensitive parts of her body exposed. A pastor that introduces the blood of animals as a means of anointing during deliverance services is also dealing in strange fire. It destroys. Read the Bible and crosscheck your life today for any such appearance. If there is, put it out from the source immediately.
