One of the characteristics associated with Holy Spirit is Fire (Matthew 3:11). Holy Spirit Fire is a picture of Holy Spirit Power. This is not a normal fire, but a fire that burns from deep within our hearts. This Fire comes directly from the very throne room of God. One thing about fire is that it can be quenched by being contained in a vessel. However, when the fire is released it will burn brightly and set its surroundings ablaze. Similarly, we have been anointed with Holy Spirit Fire.
We can quench this Fire by keeping Him contained in our lives. On the contrary, we have been commissioned to release this Holy Spirit fire within us. This is what Jesus told His disciples just before He left for Heaven. “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” – Acts 1:8. You are a witness to the Truth; Jesus saves and Jesus heals. Release the Fire of Holy Spirit by being a witness.
