Fire of The Holy Spirit – Judgment or Anointing?

7DTW AuthorIcon75 Fire of The Holy Spirit   Judgment or Anointing?

fireoftheholyspirit Fire of The Holy Spirit   Judgment or Anointing?I actually had this little piece in another of my articles but felt very strongly I needed to put this into a separate article and expand on it a little, because this is something that no one ever talks about.

The idea that the Fire of the Holy Spirit or Slain in the Spirit;  calling down fire (from Heaven), reigning fire (reign of fire), winds of fire, waves of fire, let the fire burn, fire of burning coals in your heart, fire wall, fire tunnels, consuming fire of God, setting the world ablaze, being a fire bride and the list goes on is actually a Christian thing to do.

Here is a quote that sums up just how demonic this ‘slain in the spirit / calling fire’ thing is from Nancy Flint who worked for John Wimber, Vinyard Movement / Toronto Blessing had this to say about their devious practises;

 “… run the gamut from introducing heretical doctrine, to manipulation of spiritual forces through the bringing down of “fire” from heaven, virtually all pockets of resistance to this global movement have been overcome… Literally thousands of church leaders have been trained and “deployed” into “power” positions from this seminary.”    [Emphasis added]

If this above highlighted in red does not scare you, then…I don’t know what will.  Actually that entire quote above is frightening because it also tells us that these false preachers have infiltrated the very core of the church.  That practically every church (if not all) is infected and any resistance to this poisonous takeover has been overcome.

Let’s have a look at this verse:

Matthew 3: 10-12

10 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire: 12 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.

So what we have here is a verse to supposedly back up the anointing by fire that so many pastors (Benny Hinn, Reinhard Bonnke, Todd Bentley, even Hillsong bands) like to throw out to their audience as they gleefully catch the ‘fire anointing’.

But let me show you something; this fire is seen in a bad way in the above verse.  John says that Jesus will baptise you with the Holy Spirit (for believers) and fire (for non believers) not the Holy Spirit AND fire or the Holy Spirit IS fire.  John carries on saying that Jesus will gather His wheat into the barn BUT burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.  Those who do not produce good fruit will be cast into the fire (v 10)  Fire is judgement people, Jesus saves those who accept Him (the real Jesus that is) and judges those who don’t.

The bible

You need to make sure which Jesus you are following!  The only way is to search the Word of God for answers and believe me EVERY ANSWER you need is in there.  If you seek you will find, if you want to know the truth you WILL find it.


A warning about people preaching another Jesus, and come to you with another spirit and a different gospel and how we don’t seem bothered and accept it.

2 Corinthians 11:3-4

But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ.   4  For if one comes and preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted, you bear this beautifully.

If you don’t hold fast to the truth you WILL be led astray.  How do you hold fast to the truth?  You make sure everything you hear and see can be found in scripture (obviously in the correct context as well).

The “new idea” (is actually not so new), never the less the new ideas being taught is that the bible’s message changes depending on who you are, where you are and what century you live in.

For example, just because the Bible mentions fire and the Holy Spirit in the same sentence then that gives people the right to ‘call down fire’.  Um, no.  Or, if you live in India and there is a Sadhu (holy man) walking around preaching a Christian message, yet holds onto Sadhu traditions – then he must be a Christian. Um, no.  Or the 21st century youth just can’t grasp the bible message of  ‘old’, so they need to do things differently. Um, no.   They need to give you a ‘new’ message;  so they tell you that meditation, clearing your mind, breathing, etc., is the same as biblical praying.  Um, no.

And because you don’t read your bible, now you all hold your hands in the air at those biblical conferences or gospel concerts and catch that so called Holy Spirit FIRE!  Wrong, it’s not the Holy Spirit, it’s demonic.

They know you will not check the bible you carry around with you, and are relying on the verses they supply to back up their ‘news’  gospel is just foolish.

    >> Be careful to take one verse….very dangerous

    Very dangerous? Really? Says who? If that’s the case then by your logic, reading a verse incorrectly is also very dangerous.

    Re-read my article. I clearly said I am going to speak about a verse that is used a lot by those who like to try back up their Fire as being totally 100% good. I am speaking about people who speak of a false counterfeit spirit as being the Holy Spirit. I mention that I am speaking about people who’s Holy Spirit is nothing but fire, call down fire, throwing fire, casting fire, slaying people with fire, transferring fire , speaking of the Holy Spirit as burring coals of fire, etc, etc, etc. This ‘holy’ spirit surrounds people who speak nothing but lies, preach a different gospel to that of what Jesus Christ preached and what the anointed Apostles and Disciples of the Bible preached. They were given massive power to overcome the most horrendous obstacles ahead them and at the same time write down the Word of God so that all may hear and come to believe in Jesus Christ.

    The Word of God is a complete and final testimony of Jesus the Son of God when He walked this earth, His power, His Majesty, His miracles, His sacrifice to shed His blood for our sin, His resurrection, His Reign and His second coming. The Word of God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.

    We don’t need Fire thrown at us and called down from heaven; we don’t need power when we have the Word of God, when we are truly saved we have Jesus in our lives not on the outside!

    >> Clearly in Acts 2 the Holy Spirit came on them (the disciples – of the real Jesus!) and they received power

    Again, I am speaking about people who WANT physical power, physical experiences, signs and wonders because just believing is not enough and refuse to test the spirit as per 1 John 4.

  • Tobie

    You can’t make this comment based on one verse that speaks about the Holy Spirit and fire. Clearly in Acts 2 the Holy Spirit came on them (the disciples – of the real Jesus!) and they received power, not judgment. Be careful to take one verse and base your who view of the Bible and the Father, Son and Holy Spirit on that one verse. Very dangerous. You have opened my eyes though to the fact that fire does not only refer to power (like with the disciples) but also is a cleansing fire for the believer. And yes a destructive fire for the unbeliever. God bless! That is of course, the only One and True God – God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

    *sighs* and the fire spreads…

    This was actually a very good article, ’tis a mystery why it had little interest. I was stuck in a minsitry where this was prevalent (mid ’90s). I actually heard prophecies such as ‘The Lord says, take my fire to my people’. We thought it was a holy fire to ignite the body of Christ.

    Aaahh, such biblical ignorance.

    As they say – Charismatics walk right past the miracle looking for the spectacular.

  • Am pastor Kafeero Kezekia and still waiting for an answer from you. By the grace of god am now teaching on family Radio 105.3 fm here in Uganda every saturday from 8:30 pm to 9:00 pm.
    Blessings in Jesus’ Name.

    >> and still waiting for an answer from you.

    How can you be waiting for an answer from me when I have no idea who you are.

    Anyhow great attempt at advertising your radio segment times on my blog. I hope you actually preach the gospel of Jesus Christ, and not some false doctrine of Latter Rain or Word of Faith rubbish.

  • Michael Anthony

    Dear Pastor Kafeero,

    I had a look at your website…there is one little problem. Yes, Jesus Christ our Lord still heals the sick today, as and when he wills. Yes, Jesus Christ, the creator of all things can intervene and perform what we call miracles; according to his wisdom and according to his will. But that is not the Gospel.

    One purpose of this website is to help clarify the need for REPENTANCE (true, Godly sorrowful, biblical repentance – being broken and contrite over one’s sinful condition) and also the forgiveness of SINS through the complete work of the cross and putting our faith not on our own works, but on in HIS work for us. That leads to true salvation. The other purpose of this site is to warn others of the false gospels, false teachers, false conversions and the seduction of Christianity. This will lead many astray in these last days.

    Signs, wonders and miracles are not necessarily evidence of God’s work, Satan can also perform miracles, sign and wonders. Israel, the nation that came out of Egypt saw more signs, wonders and miracles than any other generation in history – yet they all perished in the desert (because of their unbelief and unwillingness to repent). Yet, on your website you seem to make mention of miracles and healings. You make mention of Jesus, the word of God, the kingdom. Yet, Jesus Christ, the substitutionary atonement BY HIS Vicarious death on the cross is not even mentioned on your website. But miracles and crusades are….

    Jesus said to go and make disciples of all nations, TEACHING THEM… not performing signs and wonders so that they can believe. Man’s wickedness wants to see signs and wonders. True faith believes in what it cannot see.

    Is this what you preach on your radio program?

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)


    Thanks for looking at his website… I hope he comes back to comment.

    very very interesting.

    Extremism. That’s what’s keeping us apart, instead of uniting like the early church we are just growing apart.

    Sir. You don’t even have the patience’s to humbly argue a point, you get upset when someone contradicts you. So, I guess you feel, everybody else is lost but you.

  • Michael Anthony


    >>>Extremism. That’s what’s keeping us apart, instead of uniting like the early church we are just growing apart.>>>

    No, it’s the truth that keeping us apart. Truth divides, that’s what Jesus said. You alluding to that being extremism?

    >>> Sir. You don’t even have the patience’s to humbly argue a point, you get upset when someone contradicts you.>>>

    Sir, exactly who and what are you addressing? Can you be less cryptic and make an actual point? Then ‘humbly’ ‘argue’ it yourself? (I would have used the word ‘defend’ but you seem to think other people get upset so I guess in the context of your thinking ‘arguing’ is appropriate)

  • Amanda


    The Word of God is extreme:

    as it is written: “None is righteous, no, not one; no one understands; no one seeks for God. All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one.” “Their throat is an open grave; they use their tongues to deceive.” “The venom of asps is under their lips.” “Their mouth is full of curses and bitterness.” “Their feet are swift to shed blood; in their paths are ruin and misery, and the way of peace they have not known.” “There is no fear of God before their eyes.” Now we know that whatever the law says it speaks to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be stopped, and the whole world may be held accountable to God. For by works of the law no human being will be justified in his sight, since through the law comes knowledge of sin. (Romans 3:10-20)

    Jesus Christ is extreme:

    “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.
    (Matthew 25:41)

    So you, Hector, have an extreme problem, don’t you agree? You require an extreme solution. What is your solution to your extreme problem?

    Why is there so much focus on this website on the past and future as opposed to the gift of the present? Tis quite a shame to forgo the blessing. Most of what i read here is violent communication by non-living people.

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)


    Heyyyy, you are back! I thought you were going to run away from this blog and never return. Did you go and do the research I politely asked you to do regarding the catholic religion you were caught up in that you thought was Christianity?

  • [...] Please see an explanation of the following scripture which false teachers twist to try back up the use of FIRE:  Matthew 3:11-12  “Indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. His winnowing fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clean out His threshing floor, and gather His wheat into the barn; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.”  — Fire of The Holy Spirit – Judgment or Anointing? [...]

  • [...] Andrew’s website logo is that of FIRE, we know that Biblically the Holy Spirit is not fire,  see here: The Biblical Holy Spirit vs.The False Unholy Spirit of Fire  and Fire of The Holy Spirit – Judgment or Anointing? [...]
