DO NOT QUENCH THE SPIRIT’S FIRE
1 Thessalonians 5:19-22 “Do not put out the Spirit’s fire; do not treat treat prophecies with contempt. Test everything. Hold on to the good. Avoid every kind of evil.”
The Scene: a fire extinguisher representing the people who do not believe in the power of the Holy Spirit.
1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 “May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The one who calls you is faithful and he will do it.”
The world has tried to quench the Spirit and will continue to do so, until the end, the fulfillment of time. Believers are called to listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit–He speaks only truth.
John 16:13-14 ” But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you. ‘ ”
Jesus was speaking to the Apostles telling them whom they should expect after He had been resurrected and returned to heaven.
John 14: 15–18 ” ‘ If you love me, you will obey what I command. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever–the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans.’ ”
