Basic overview of becoming a firestarter and firestarter weekend
Based on the book of Acts the concept of 'firestarter' is simply what God wills to turn His people and Church into. Jesus taught that we would be 'CLOTHED WITH POWER FROM ON HIGH'. He was not just talking about our feeling good.
He was referring to the dynamic felt (experiential) operation of the Holy Spirit in leading us to reach the world for salvation..............operating in and with the incredible super natural power of God.
Jesus would give us His presence and power to be set on "fire" !
This " fire" is the presence of Jesus, His Spirit moving in, on and through us. This is Jesus at work in and through us to get people save, healed, delivered, cared for, discipled and in the fellowship of the body of Christ. He moves us, pours through our prayers (Acts 4) and demonstrates His presence with signs and wonders.
''Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.''
Each of the new testament 'Spirit filled' witness's demonstrated what God has intended, that His mission......the most passionate work in all heaven and earth.....would be accomplished by those who knew Him and loved the Lord Jesus Christ. These would live in the fire of the Holy Spirit. This 'fire' will be seen in the passion, purity and purpose of the believer who lives in obedience to Jesus.
We must learn that all His grace and mercy is received by faith, and that His presence, power and works are manifested by our obedience to Him and all of His Word.
