Dear Partner and Friends,

Praise God.  What an exciting year.  Thank you for joining with us in ministering the Gospel of Jesus Christ.   Your prayers and financial support of this ministry are making it possible for us to fulfill the mission God has given us.  You are so important to God and His plan.  

“I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. But he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire." (Matt. 3:11)

Notice that John the Baptist said, that Jesus will be baptizing us with the Holy Ghost, AND with FIRE.  What is this fire?  

When some people think of the fire of God, they think of His judgment and wrath. In the Old Testament we see examples of the fire of God protecting Elijah and destroying enemy armies as they approached him (2 Kings 1:10)   We also see Elijah calling on the fire of God to consume a sacrifice that was offered.  When the prophets of Baal failed to produce results, Elijah prayed and God answered with such a Holy fire that it consumed the sacrifice altar and all.  (1 Kings 18:21-39)

You see God has such a passionate love for His children that His passion manifests as a fire, consuming the very things that oppresses and harm His children. 

The fire of God is not His anger or judgment. It literally is His “ALL CONSUMING PASSIONATE LOVE FOR YOU HIS CHILD”

Several years ago, I begin an outreach in Austin MN.  Our ministry established a Prayer and Healing Center.   In the very beginning stages of this work, I was led by the Lord to begin seeking Him in the early mornings at the center.  

It was during that time of prayer that I received a baptism of fresh fire.  It was like very hot oil being poured out on my head, as it ran down the back of my neck onto my shoulders and arms down through my hands and feet. 

I was born again, baptized and filled with His Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other languages, but that week the Lord was doing something different with me.  My life changed.
I instantly had a new zeal and passion for God and His people.  This anointing of fire stayed with me and impacted my life personally, and the greatly affected the effectiveness of this ministry.  I began ministering on the fire of God in our revival services.  That is when God spoke to me and said, “My people need to know my heart.”  He said;  “Rory, if my children do not know that I am love, that they are to love Me above everything else, and then love their neighbor, they will not receive this baptism of fire, or walk in it.”   

Yes, there is a fire that pertains to judgment, but the intent of God's judgment is not for destruction, but for liberation.  The Church isn't under God's wrath or judgment. The blood of Jesus has been shed. Your sins have been done away with. You have been restored.  

The baptism of fire is His all consuming passionate love to cleanse you, liberate you and empower you.  We can see this baptism of the fire given in the Book of Acts.

“And when the Day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 

And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like AS OF FIRE, and it sat upon each of them. And THEY WERE ALL FILLED WITH THE HOLY GHOST, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. “
(Acts 2:1-4)

Yes the baptism of the Holy Spirit and fire of God is available today for the believer.  As you can see His fire does not bring judgment.  His fire, His passion, consumes you with Holy Ghost power, ability, and might (Acts 1:8 AMP).   His fire gives you a new boldness, confidence and liberation from any oppression and fear.

The fire of God is what changes you. This eternal love, burns off the chaff, and removes the things that hold you back. It lifts you up and into the destiny God ordained you to walk in. 

For you to experience the fire of His Spirit, you need to know and believe His love.  Ask God for the baptism of His Holy Spirit and fire today.  Just receive what He freely gives, and your life will never be the same. 

Once again I want to thank you for partnering with us in being a prophetic “Voice of Freedom” to the world.  I will continue to pray Psalm 91, Ephesians 1:13-23 and Ephesians 3:14-21 for you and your family as well.  I declare you blessed and highly favored of the Lord.  

Your Partner in Ministry
