FAN THE FLAME

FAN THE FLAME

2 Timothy 1:6-7 “For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands.* For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline. “

* Laying on of hands: the act, given to those who are seeking the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and all His gifts for us, which includes the fruit of the Spirit. (See Galatians 5:22)

The Scene: A person who has already received the baptism in the Holy Spirit, laying hands on someone who wants to receive the same baptism in the Holy Spirit. The flames (tongues of fire) represent the Holy Spirit entering the candidate.

Luke 11:13 If you then, though you are evil,* know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” *sinners—for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. (See Romans 3:23).

The Five Fold Ministry— the gifts of being apostles, prophets, teachers, workers of miracles, gifts of healing, those able to help others, those with gifts of administration and those speaking in tongues: these make up the body of Christ and His church. (See 1 Corinthians 12:27-31)

Acts 2:1-4 When the day of Pentecost* came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit entered them.” * 50 days after Jesus’ bodily ascension into heaven.
