ALOHA FAMILY AND FRIENDS,   Beloved of God,   John 3:16-18
Fire is very interesting as a Biblical search.  In Ezek 28:18 we find a prophesy that GOD will bring a fire from lucifer himself that will destroy him.  The Messenger of the LORD first appeared to Moses in the flames of the burning bush, Ex.3:2.   In Ex.24:17 the Glory of the LORD looked like a consuming fire. In Lev.9:24 fire from heaven consumed the burnt offering.  In Deut. 4:24 the scriptures tell us that the LORD GOD is a consuming fire.
So is it any wonder that if our Creator want's to make us in HIS Image and likeness that we are going to need to get use to HIS fire?  John the Baptist tells us that the LORD JESUS came to baptize us with fire, Matt.3:11.  Then at Pentecost We see the apostles of Christ Jesus experiencing just that. Acts.2:3.   and then in 1 Cor.3:13 we are taught by Paul that our works will even be tested by fire or GOD's presence. In Hebrews 1:7 we are told that the LORD's servants are to be flames of fire. And in the Revelation we see Christ Jesus the LORD with eyes as a blazing fire.   
The vision for our little house church in Kealia is to be used of GOD to bring our kindling together and to get a good HOT, Holy Spirit fire going.  Not going to be easy as there is not much dry wood lying around.  Once the fire is going then a little wet wood will be OK. And when the fire really takes off there will be many that come to get dry and warmed up and catch on fire.
So what we are taught is that Christ Jesus is the 1st born of many brethren Rom.8:29  Not only that but that we are also to be conformed to the image of HIS SON  (CHRIST JESUS) So that leaves us with the choice of either burning out for HIM or rotting out for this world.    Yours, in HIS great love and wonderful grace and mercy,  Ken<><      FAMOUS QUOTES:    "Have you noticed how much praying for revival has been going on   of late - and how little revival has resulted? I believe the problem is   that we have been trying to substitute praying for obeying, and it   simply will not work. To pray for revival while ignoring the plain   precept laid down in Scripture is to waste a lot of words and get   nothing for our trouble. Prayer will become effective when we stop   using it as a substitute for obedience." - A. W. Tozer     "There are different kinds of fire; there is false fire. No one knows  this better than we do, but we are not such fools as to refuse good   bank notes because there are false ones in circulation; and   although we see here and there manifestations of what appears to   us to be nothing more than mere earthly fire, we nonetheless prize   and value, and seek for the genuine fire which comes from the altar   of the Lord." - William Booth
"We need a baptism of clear seeing. We desperately need seers   who can see through the mist--Christian leaders with prophetic   vision. Unless they come soon it will be too late for this generation.   And if they do come we will no doubt crucify a few of them in the   name of our worldly orthodoxy." -A. W. Tozer
