The fire shall ever be burning upon the alter; it shall never go out.
This was the instruction of God to Moses to pass it on to Aaron the priest that on the alter shall there be a continuous fire burning.
In the new testament of grace the alter is no longer a physical one but it is now in you and all who are saved by GRACE and who call on the Father through the name of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ.
The word said we are the temple of the HolyGhost.1 Corinthians 6:19.
It is in the temple that the alter is located.So by this we are the carrier of the alter God where the fire of God is lit.
Our lives must be burning with the fire of the HolyGhost day and night, not burning out till the day our Lord and Christ shall return.
The story of the ten virgin by Jesus our savior is a classical example that our fire must be burning till the end.Matthew 25:1-13.
There are four keys to stay on fire till the end.
Stick to the basics
A.No matter how much of a veteran you think you are in the area of faith, no one ever outgrows the basics of God’s Word and prayer. Psalm 119:105 tells us, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”
Through the seasons of life, our communication with God is of vital importance to keeping that passion for Him burning. The primary way we communicate with God is through prayer and He also primarily speaks to us through His Word.
B.Remain in fellowship
A burning coal, when removed from a pile of red-hot coals, loses its fire when it sits alone. Christians also experience the same thing. That’s why church community and fellowship are vital to our everyday walk. When we stay within accountability, encouragement, and discipleship that come through fellowship, we remain on fire for God.
C.Remember the joy of your salvation
When David felt his fire for God dying, which led to his immorality with Bathsheba, he cried out to God, saying, “Cast me not away from your presence, and take not your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit.” (Psalm 51:11-12
D.Go back to your first love
Revelation 2:4 speaks of the first love that has been abandoned so many times. Our first love is and will always be Jesus. What keeps us focused on Christ as our first love is this great reminder that it was He who loved us first ( 1 John 4:19 ) and our love for Him now comes simply as a response to the greatest love we will ever know.
Keep your FIRE burning
