This is why I was shocked by what I heard last week.
I heard the Fox News reporter share about the "Holy Fire" south and east of Los Angeles which threatened a communication center and could be a threat to the city.
I was shocked because through Operation Rolling Thunder and my experience with 1Church1Day I've learned about God's sign language. God is speaking LOUD and CLEAR!
HOLY FIRE! It's a sign that should make you wonder/marvel and hopefully repent! It's outside Los Angeles! Los Angeles literally means the angels. That's why people call is the City of Angels.
Now let me tell you what I see and hear. God is sending a holy fire to His Church to prepare a holy dwelling place from which to send His holy messengers with His gospel of the kingdom. Consider the following scriptures.
Isaiah 4:3-6 speaks of how God intends to visit Zion, that's the place of continual prayer, praise and worship with a spirit of judgment and burning. Why? To purify His people and then to be a place of refuge and shelter.
In Isaiah 6:1-8 we find Isaiah sees the Lord in heaven and God sends a seraphim who takes a coal from the altar and touches it to Isaiah's lips. The touch takes away his iniquity and purges his sin. Then Isaiah hears God's voice saying, whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?
What does the sign language mean?
Because of God's touch, Isaiah was prepared to respond with, "here am I, send me."
The seraphim is a heavenly being which means "fiery." Took the coal from the altar and touched Isaiah's lips. Why? Because the messenger's speech must be sanctified and set apart only for the Master's use.
God speaks through types and shadows!
