An Emoji Devotions for Sun 21 February, 2021 Topic: Please Don't Die Highlights: Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father? Hebrews 12:7 A pot filled with water burning in the intense heat of fire will maintain resistance until the water is dried up. Once there is no more water, the pot will be burnt. For our “God is a consuming fire" Heb 12:29; and according to Zechariah 14:21 We are all cooking pots because our flesh is the house of the spirit living in us(also See "Heavenly Mothers" Emoji Devotions for Fri 19th). As a matter of fact, every pot born alive and existing on earth is always on fire. Whatever you have in your pot determines what you are up to. Jeremiah 1:13 -15a The word of the Lord came to me again: “What do you see?” “I see a pot that is boiling,” I answered. “It is tilting toward us from the north.” The Lord said to me, “From the north disaster will be poured out on all who live in the land. 15 I am about to summon all the peoples of the northern kingdoms,” declares the Lord.... Sometimes a pot could refer to a collection of people or city with the same motives. This shows that we are living on God's fire to fulfill his purpose. Right now the world is burning on grace because we all have something cooking in our pots that fire could still burn. God is an everlasting fire that does not quench (Amen) and is burning every human motives. 1 Cor 3:13-15 Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. Everyone has a motive(a reason for doing something) and if your motive is established, you will receive a reward for it but if your motive is burned you will suffer loss. In Luke 3:16 John answered them all, "I baptize you with water. But one who is more powerful than I will come, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. In this verse John the Baptist was telling the people that God has sent Jesus to come and do the separations of those who will be burned with fire and those who will be established with God forever. See this in Luke 3:17 (that) "He is ready to separate the chaff from the wheat with his winnowing fork. Then he will clean up the threshing area, gathering the wheat into his barn but burning the chaff with never-ending fire.” It is just like a man holding light looking into everyone's eyes while identifying and separating the justified from the condemned. That's Jesus Christ. His mother once said "Do whatever he tells you" John 2:5 In Luke 12:51-53 (Our Lord Jesus said) "Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division. 52 From now on there will be five in one family divided against each other, three against two and two against three. 53 They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.” You can see why Jesus came to the world. Because in verse 49 of Luke 12 He said "I have come to set the world on fire, and I wish it were already burning!" NIV. That's the fire burning already under every pots of each and everyone of us. If the Spirit of God is not living in you (your pot), that means you are chaff which will be burned. Let me put it like this : For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live. Romans 8:13 How is this possible? If put a flesh on fire, the flesh will be burnt. But if by the spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live. How? You need to be born again. Yes, if you are not born again, you cannot receive the spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ. As human being our brain is forgetful and ignorant that we are all living at the expense of God's fire. We must sincerely accept Jesus Christ into our lives and ask him to give us His Holy Spirit and fire to put us in the right path in God's will. You have the right to live if you are not burned by fire of God. This can only happen when your motives are not against the fire. Read Hebrews 12:18-29 In conclusion, if you are at the point of death; repent and make amendment of your ways back to God and ask God for mercy through Jesus Christ because God's children don't die, they only sleep. John 11:11 This He said, and after that He *said to them, “Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep; but I go, so that I may awaken him out of sleep.” If your works have been burn with fire, the loss will show in your body and your health. Do not ask God why you wish to live as you wish and don't want to get burned. It is not God's fault that he created you to make this world more beautiful while you change and wants to go your own way. The world itself is powered by the fire of the sun. It cannot be in darkness anymore. For it is time for judgment to begin with God's household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God? 1 Peter 4:17. The only solution is to genuinely repent and remain in the Holy Spirit and fire. Please don't die. Prayer: Lord Jesus wherever you are I'm ready to change my ways by receiving you into my life. Send me your Holy Spirit and fire to show me the rest of things I need to know. In your name I pray. Amen.
