“Now, before closing. One time I was up in Glacier National Park. We heard, all day long, that they had a–they had a fall, a glacier fire that was going to fall at night. So the people was busy, all day long, getting that thing ready, because they was going to pour that fire out, that night. They put a liquid fire falls, like a great glacier of water. But it’s… Looked like a rainbow, almost, when it comes out, of that fire falling out of this glacier. All around through the park, wife and I, and children, walked around through the day. We want to stay to see that fire exhibition. So it–it–it was promised us that we would see it, and we’d witness it again. They said they have it ever through the summer seasons and so forth. I said, “Well, will we be able to see it?”
Said, “We promised it tonight. We’re promised that.” Said, “They’re up there getting it ready now.”
After all had been made ready for the event! That’s what’s taking place right now. All has been made ready for the event, a Church being pulled out for His Name’s sake, taking His Bride out from amongst the world, these denominations and all the world, and the filth and things of the world.
Everybody; the event was made ready. Everybody was standing out. They said, “Now keep watching, right up on top the mountain there.”
That’s the way It’s always come. That’s the way It’s to come this time. That’s the way It always come. Not through a denomination! Never did God use a denomination, never!
The reformer goes forth, he gets the Word of the Lord. And then when he dies, they build a denomination out of it. That’s what the Pentecostals and all did. When the new issues, everything, that’s just the way. That’s the way the thing come out. A new word added, then they build a church out of it, made a denomination, separated themself. It had to be that way.
Now, you can’t beat–you can’t beat nature. Nature falls in the same routine, all the time: stalk, leaf, tassel, so forth, shuck, then the wheat.
Now notice. All was ready. Everything had been kindled and made ready. And everybody was standing out. I had my head sticking up; my arm around my wife. We was looking. And children standing there, all of us looking up, like that. My! It was something, ’cause we was expecting it. It was promised to us.
Amen! The Word promises This. “It shall come to pass, before the great and terrible day of the Lord shall come, behold, I will send unto you Elijah the prophet. He shall turn the hearts of the children back to the fathers.”…?… “It shall come to pass in the last days, I’ll pour out My Spirit from on High.” “The former and latter rain shall come together in the last day.” All these promises, through the Scriptures, been given. We’re looking upward. Watch at the true Bride across the nation this hour, looking up. Church, He is coming, one of these days. Just as sure as He come the first time, He is coming again. Get everything ready. Separate yourself from shuck. Lay before the Son. Keep looking up. Be under expectation.
All at once, we heard something from the top the hill, a voice come down through the loud speaker, said, “All things are ready.”
Then this man, standing right there by the side of me, said, “Let the fire fall.” Here it come, pouring down across that mountain, a glacier of fire and blazes a licking, a sight to behold.
Brother, let’s get all things ready, for one of these days the Fire is going to fall. We’re going up. Now let’s get ready for the Fire-falling time.”
|‘Fire Fall‘ (Glacier Point – Yosemite National Park)|
A precious friend of ours (Bro. Jack Duff – Pastor of ‘Spirit & Truth Tabernacle in West Palm Beach, FL) visited us recently for some special meetings. On Friday night (11/11/11) he used this quote for the basis of a sermon he titled ‘Let The Fire Fall‘.
Yesterday, Bro. Trevor sent Bro. Jack & myself the link to a video he had found of a park ranger telling a very similar story about the ‘Fire Fall‘. The video also included the details of how the ‘Fire Fall‘ started in 1872, and why they stopped performing the event in 1968 (due to the overwhelming amount of visitors & traffic caused by the event, and because it was not a ‘natural event’).
My first thought was, ‘It would be fun to re-create this event‘. Spiritually speaking however; you cannot try to re-kindle, or re-create the fire from another generation. We mustn’t try to make our experience match someone else’s, but our experience MUST match the Word of God.
As nice as it would be to have a video of this event from back in the 1960’s; ‘you can’t get warm by a painted fire‘. While the historical record would be nice to have; by Itself the Letter killeth, but mixed with the Spirit It is quickened to give Life.
The tree bark the park workers used was dead in & of itself, but when they mixed it with fire it provided life-sustaining warmth. So must we become dead to ourselves & dead to the things of the world so that the Holy Ghost & Fire can be kindled in our lives until it is no longer us, but Christ that lives in us!
I also like that this was not just a monthly event (taking the communion), or an annual event (waiting for a revival), but preparations were made all day long, every single day so that the fire could fall daily!
May we live so close that a fresh anointing of Fire can fall on us daily!
