Eight years ago we were fresh off foreign soil with hearts drastically set ablaze. We returned to life at home, yet our hearts yearned for the deeper things we had encountered with King Jesus in our solo times with Him and abroad. We could not consciously allow ourselves to settle for what life was like before our eyes had been opened to the greater move of Holy Spirit…nor did we desire to.
Often viewed as radicals and crazy, we became desperate for an outlet and to commune with Holy Spirit in a fresh way. He then reminded us of words He had placed in our hearts, so we began gathering with a small group of friends in homes weekly for what would soon become Fire By Night. It was all about Him, being united in spirit, and becoming vessels for His Spirit to flow through. The goal: to bring Him what He is worthy of.
A secondary goal was to unite believers across varying streams and churches…and also be a safe and comfortable place for the unchurched and lost who would never step foot in a church to feel welcome to come in a home and koinonia together over food and fellowship. Then we would join Holy Spirit in what He was doing, releasing spontaneous prophetic songs, words, and tongues, ministering by His Spirit.
1 Corinthians 14:26 was the basis of these gatherings: “Well, my brothers and sisters, let’s summarize. When you meet together, one will sing, another will teach, another will tell some special revelation God has given, one will speak in tongues, and another will interpret what is said. But everything that is done must strengthen all of you.”
“Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin, to see the plumb line in Zerubbabel’s hand.” (The seven lamps represent the eyes of the Lord that search all around the world.)”
What began as small became clay in The Potter’s hands and He began to mold and shape it, shift it, and draw countless others to His masterpiece over the next ten months before we handed it off, got married, and set off for a nine months faith journey with Jesus around the world. Many came not knowing Jesus, others never encountering His Spirit, many healed, saved, and delivered, and many being baptized in Holy Spirit and Fire.
As I watched and listened to the raw recording of our last night before leaving today, I became inundated with the word and vision the Lord gave me in the very beginning…
“You think this is a fire? This is just kindling compared to what I will release in the days ahead. You will see fires being ignited all over as hungry hearts gather together to seek My face. This will spark whirlwinds of My Spirit bringing transformation to cities, regions, and nations!”
I found myself overwhelmed with the weight of this word and began weeping as the winds of His Spirit blew upon it, breathing new life into it.
I believe this is where we are at today. Since that time, so many were touched in those origin days that God has called to other states, regions, and nations, carrying the Fires of Fire By Night with them. Many have stated that they feel led to begin a Fire By Night in their area with the Burning Ones, the Remnant they have discovered.
I prophesy that:
“the days of small beginnings have paved the path for the new day of exponential increase. Many have felt disenfranchised in this past season and have felt thrown into isolation and become overwhelmed and desperate for family.
The sifting before the shifting has led to the Real Remnant being revealed and it is time to be released!!!
It is time to gather together in homes, parks, streets, and on the frontlines to release the New Sound!!! Instead of streets and buildings burning at the hands of evil, it is time for The Burning Ones to raid streets, buildings, homes, and cities with the pure, raw, unfiltered, manifest Fire of God!!!
There are thousands in the valley of decision just awaiting the clarion call, beckoning them to “Come!”
They are looking for the Real Deal and the manifest Presence of The One True God to be revealed in the earth. This will come as His Remnant comes out of their caves of isolation and preparation, to be the manifestation of His Power in the earth!!!
The time for the True Church to arise is NOW!!! Heaven eagerly awaits the songs of action and the raw, hungry declarations of His Bride to partner with as Heaven invades earth and brings a realigning and redesigning!!!”
Be blessed and ignited with a fresh fire as you listen to the raw sounds of The Remnant. May you be encouraged today to arise, shine, and be the Light in the darkness. May you receive a fresh impartation of vision for what you can do to step into call of The Remnant today; whether it be to organize a Fire By Night where you are, to go out on the streets and be the hands and feet of Jesus to the hurting and lost, or whatever creative call He has designed for you.
