  1. There’s a lot in a dictionary about fire.

    Isn’t it something about what John the Baptist prophesied about, and then that day of Pentecost?

    Peter was on fire on that day wasn’t he?

    Jesus said that they would be witnesses unto him.(Acts 1:8)

  2. When I told my Pastor a while ago that I go on this site. Then my Pastor said…”Oh yes Mike Brown, he was involved in The Brownsville Revival.” I said, “No it must be a different Mike Brown your thinking of. “This guy has all these degrees in languages, founder of FIRE School of Ministry, does debates, wrote a lot of books, etc, etc.

    Then I told my son who introduced me to this site. I said to him the Pastor thinks Dr Brown was involved in The Brownsville Revival, Then my son said he was. I’m like WIT!!! I had no idea. It was so funny that I didn’t know that.

    I really didn’t know too much about the Revival, I did hear most all the services folks broke out in laughter. Crazy laughter type.

    It took me a bit to accept the fact that it was Dr Mike Brown affiliated with Brownsville. Just never knew this. Oh well, now I do.

  3. Julian of Norwich came back from her deathbed, and said in 1363 that the difference between real fire and false fire was that real fire was Christ centered, not religious experience and man centered. Real fire too, past saints declare, burns within and captures the heart for care and conveyance of the Message of truth and grace to those without, who have not understood why Jesus came.

  4. Simply substitute the phrase “real fire” for love in the love chapter by Paul, then it is self explanatory in definition for our discernment.

  5. Regarding your statements at 25:15 in the show “When anyone wants to throw out scripture or throw out whole parts of scripture, they’re off,” and then again at 26:18, you say “when the path that someone is on gets them to throw out part of the scripture, something is terribly off” I know you were talking about a different application of this criterion, but the first thing that came to my mind when you said this was Martin Luther’s attempt to remove James from the Bible.

  6. I’m looking again at the word fire in my dictionary and see one term there is “make burn”.

    This reminds me of how Christian (in the Pilgrim’s Progress) was shown that though Satan tries to put out the fire of God, (in the example
    Christian was given) by throwing water on it, the Lord would pour oil (representing the oil of God’s grace) on the fire to keep it burning.

    Oil added to a fire causes it to burn very hot.

  7. If we associate the word glory with fire we may find a key to discerning.

    As we glory in the Lord we depart from the flesh.

  8. These words from the song _O For A Thousand Tongues To Sing_ began to come to mind:

    O for a thousand tongues to sing My great Redeemer’s praise,
    The glories of my God and King, The triumphs of His grace.

    My gracious Master and my God, Assist me to proclaim,
    To spread through all the earth abroad, The honors of thy Name.

    He breaks the power of canceled sin, He sets the prisoner free,
    His blood can make the foulest clean; His blood availed for me.

    Hear Him ye deaf; His praise, ye dumb, Your loosened tongues employ;
    Ye blind, behold your savior come; And leap ye lame for joy.
