A book of prayers to the Holy Face of Jesus
God's Consuming Fire!
The Flame of Love!
God’s consuming Fire is the Flame of Love!
It’s purity and light is so bright, that it blinded Paul on the road to Damascus.
Isaiah’s tongue had to be singed with the coal of the altar just to speak the clarity and purity of God’s word of Divine truth and love, which never returns to him void.
Moses could only witness the embers of God’s consuming fire in the burning bush. he had to turn his back so God could reveal himself more intimately with Moses at his time on Mt. Sinai.
No soul stands before the throne of God with a single blemish!
Purity and innocence are the oil of gladness that becomes the anointed oil need to keep our lamps lit and the Flame of Love burning brightly in our Hearts.
You are the light of the world, the well lit lamp on the lamp stand that illuminates the entire room.
You are the intimacy of a candle lit dinner, for spouses in warm conversation.
You are the warmth of the fireplace, where families gather in faith and love.
You are the burning torches of the Apostles of light, to turn darkness and shadows into puffs of smoke, scattered in the wind.
You are ambassadors of God’s consuming fire,
pillars of fire to show the way and turn back darkness and sin.
You are the all consuming Fire of the Flame of Love of God’s Mercy and Grace.
It will engage you intimately or blind you!
It will draw you to it’s warmth and love or it will burn you!
It is none the less, the Flame of Love of God’s Mercy and Grace!
Your history is not your future!
Turn back to God and be drawn to the light and love of Christ.
Walk in the light and love of Christ the Coming King and his ambient and Omnipotent light.
The life Giving life of Grace and love!
Purity and Innocence.
Light and Love!
The Flame of Love of God’s all Consuming Fire!
Hebrews 12:18-29 (DR)
‘For you are not come to a mountain that might be touched and a burning fire and a whirlwind and darkness and storm, And the sound of a trumpet and the voice of words, which they that had excused themselves, that the word might not be spoken to them. For they did not endure that which was said: and if so much as a beast shall touch the mount, it shall be stoned. And so terrible was that which was seen, Moses said: I am frightened, and tremble. But you are come to mount Sion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to the company of many thousands of angels, And to the church of the firstborn who are written in the heavens, and to God the judge of all, and to the spirits of the just made perfect, And to Jesus the mediator of the new testament, and to the sprinkling of blood which speaketh better than that of Abel. See that you refuse him not that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spoke upon earth, much more shall not we that turn away from him that speaketh to us from heaven. Whose voice then moved the earth; but now he promiseth, saying: Yet once more: and I will move, not only the earth, but heaven also. And in that he saith: Yet once more, he signifieth the translation of the moveable things as made, that those things may remain which are immoveable. Therefore, receiving an immoveable kingdom, we have grace: whereby let us serve, pleasing God, with fear and reverence. For our God is a consuming fire.”
“Thou shalt know therefore this day that the Lord thy God himself will pass over before thee, a devouring and consuming fire, to destroy and extirpate and bring them to nothing before thy face quickly, as he hath spoken to thee. Say not in thy heart, when the Lord thy God shall have destroyed them in thy sight: For my justice hath the Lord brought me in to possess this land, whereas these nations are destroyed for their wickedness. For it is not for thy justices, and the uprightness of thy heart that thou shalt go in to possess their lands: but because they have done wickedly, they are destroyed at thy coming in: and that the Lord might accomplish his word, which he promised by oath to thy fathers Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Know therefore that the Lord thy God giveth thee not this excellent land in possession for thy justices, for thou art a very stiffnecked people. Remember, and forget not how thou provokedst the Lord thy God to wrath in the wilderness. From the day that thou camest out of Egypt unto this place, thou hast always strove against the Lord. For in Horeb, also thou didst provoke him, and he was angry, and would have destroyed thee, When I went up into the mount to receive the tables of stone, the tables of the covenant which the Lord made with you: and I continued in the mount forty days and nights, neither eating bread, nor drinking water. And the Lord gave me two tables of stone written with the finger of God, and containing all the words that he spoke to you in the mount from the midst of the fire, when the people were assembled together. And when forty days were passed, and as many nights, the Lord gave me the two tables of stone, the tables of the covenant, And said to me: Arise, and go down from hence quickly: for thy people, which thou hast brought out of Egypt, have quickly forsaken the way that thou hast shewn them, and have made to themselves a molten idol. And again the Lord said to me: I see that this people is stiffnecked: Let me alone that I may destroy them, and abolish their name from under heaven, and set thee over a nation, that is greater and stronger than this. And when I came down from the burning mount, and held the two tables of the covenant with both hands, And saw that you had sinned against the Lord your God, and had made to yourselves a molten calf, and had quickly forsaken his way, which he had shewn you: I cast the tables out of my hands, and broke them in your sight. And I fell down before the Lord as before, forty days and nights neither eating bread, nor drinking water, for all your sins, which you had committed against the Lord, and had provoked him to wrath: For I feared his indignation and anger, wherewith being moved against you, he would have destroyed you. And the Lord heard me this time also.”
Apocalypse 20:1-15 (DR)
“And I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, the old serpent, which is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. And he cast him into the bottomless pit and shut him up and set a seal upon him, that he should no more seduce the nations till the thousand years be finished. And after that, he must be loosed a little time. And I saw seats. And they sat upon them: and judgment was given unto them. And the souls of them that were beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God and who had not adored the beast nor his image nor received his character on their foreheads or in their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. The rest of the dead lived not, till the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection. In these the second death hath no power. But they shall be priests of God and of Christ: and shall reign with him a thousand years. And when the thousand years shall be finished, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison and shall go forth and seduce the nations which are over the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog: and shall gather them together to battle, the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they came upon the breadth of the earth and encompassed the camp of the saints and the beloved city. And there came down fire from God out of heaven and devoured them: and the devil, who seduced them, was cast into the pool of fire and brimstone, where both the beast And the false prophet shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. And I saw a great white throne and one sitting upon it, from whose face the earth and heaven fled away: and there was no place found for them And I saw the dead, great and small, standing in the presence of the throne. And the books were opened: and another book was opened, which was the book of life. And the dead were judged by those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead that were in it: and death and hell gave up their dead that were in them. And they were judged, every one according to their works. And hell and death were cast into the pool of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the pool of fire.”
