Divine Healing: The word as a Consuming Fire


Hebrews 12:29: For our God is a consuming fire.

We shall continue our series on healing today. I will be talking about the various dimensions of the word of God as it relates to securing our healing. Let us examine the word of God as  fire by looking at the following equations carefully:

Equation 1: God is a consuming fire (Hebrews 12:29)
Equation 2: Jesus is God. (John 1:1)
Equation 3: Jesus is the word. (John 1:1)

By Combining the three equations we can deduce that the word of God is a consuming fire. One of the most potent arsenals at our disposal is fire- have you noticed that mad people don’t go near fire irrespective of the level of madness? The madness of the mad won’t permit the mad to trespass with fire. Oh yea, fire is that potent.

The word of God is a two edged sword having the capacity to heal and to wound (Hebrews 12:29; Deuteronomy 32:39). The bible declares in Psalms 7:11,” God is an honest judge. He is angry with the wicked every day.”  The mercy of the lord doesn’t cover the wicked, God is angry with them daily. Sickness is from the devil, hence it must be judged by the consuming fire of the most high daily. Let us look at two powerful meticulous applications of judgemental fire:

1. Destruction: Prophet Elijah asked the God of the heavens and the earth to confirm his servanthood by ushering down fire on the wicked forces before him by declaring, “If I am a man of God, may fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty men!” Then fire fell from heaven and consumed the captain and his men.”(2 Kings 1:10).  Open your mouth and bring down fire on every infirmity in your life.

2. Purification: The fire of God can also purge infirmities and diseases like no other instrument made under heaven by man. John the Baptist spoke glowingly about Jesus (the word) in Mathew 3:12, ” Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.” Jesus (the word) has the capacity to purge your body, seperate the good in the form of the wheat and consume the chaff, which is the sickness or disease with unquenchable fire. Friends, the fire of God can’t be quenched, that is the reason Elijah poured water on the altar at mount carmel before he brought down fire (1 Kings 18:33). The fire of God licks water, it can never be quenched by it.

That fibroid, migraine, ulcer and sickle cell or whatsoever the devil has put there has stayed in your body for too long. It’s time to roast it with fire- no demon on earth can withstand it, no familiar spirit, spirit husband or wife can absorb it- that is why it is called a consuming fire.

Open your mouth and do justice to that situation. What are you waiting for?

Good  Morning

May God bless you exceedingly.
