FLAMES OF FIRE 8-30-19 VIDEO DEEP THOUGHTS
We are supernatural flames of fire. Rekindled by the breath of God to move forward in the power of his word. The glory of the Lord looks like a consuming fire. Jesus looks like fire and we look like he does. We are filled with the glory of God. On the day of Pentecost we were immersed with tongues of fire. The church ministers are engulfed by fire. So we ministers burn with the same glory of God and the fire of his word.
