The Fiery Warrior by Olufemi Precious Oluwadamilola

(NOTE: This work below is a combination of a short poem and article)

"And the fire upon the altar shall be burning in it; it shall not be put out: and the priest shall burn wood on it every morning, and lay the burnt offering in order upon it; and he shall burn thereon the fat of the peace offerings" (Leviticus 6:12)

This, I've always dreamt of,
To become a channel through which Spiritual realities are birthed here on earth,
To become a threat to the kingdom of darkness,
To surpass a nominal Christian, living a life of holiness and prayerfulness.

But not once, not twice,
Have I been hindered by this old man called 'flesh',
He brings distractions during my appointed time for prayers and word study,
He infects slumber in me, when it's time for Spiritual exercises.

He keeps wearing me out with discouragements and temptations,
He infects me with the spirit of gluttony, that I do not have ability to take up a fast,
He brings relationships that kill the fire I have already sustained,

He makes me worry about the things that matter less.
He makes the word of God, boring to me and closes my Spiritual receptors against understanding,
He keeps drawing me to my past sinful habits and won't let me go!
"Oh, wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death?

I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin (Romans 7:24-25)

Beloved, how long are these excuses going to limit your dimensions  in the Spirit?  You are in a warfare with the flesh and you have to fight the flesh till it succumbs and you become a fiery warrior. You need the Spirit of God to revive you  to keep your lamps burning through;

1. Repentance

Sin is a wedge of disconnection between you and God. Isaiah 59:2 " Your iniquities have separated you from your God, your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear you". Repent of all known sins. "Repent and turn to God, so that your sins can be wiped out, that times of 'REFRESHING' may come from the Lord". "Examine yourselves" Apostle Paul says in 2 Corinthians 13:5 .

2. Prayer

Prayer is an act of communicating with God. Luke 18:1 " And He spake a parable unto them, to the end that men ought always to pray and faint not". Prayer revives your Spirit, especially praying in the Holy Spirit. It makes you strong in your inner man. Pray! alone, with prayer partners, with other brethren in the congregation. Prayer fuels the fire of God in your Spirit and strengthens your Spirit.
1 Thessalonians 5:17 "Pray continually" Wait on God through Prayers.

3. Worship

Psalm 100:2 "Worship the Lord with gladness, come before Him with joyful songs" Worship tends to bring joy to your soul, it brings down God's presence into your life, forget not His benefits and faithfulness in your life.

4. Word of God

In John 6:63, Jesus said His words are Spirit and life. God's words quickens your understanding and gives light to your path. Let the word of God give you strength and hope. Listen also to sermons and messages that can help your Spiritual hunger.

5. Worship in the gathering of the believers

"Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching" Hebrews 10:25. Fire ignites Fire, attend church services and receive Ignition, Strength and Grace through divine ministrations.

Most importantly, the Holy Spirit is there to help you when you are weak and you are to yield to Him through waiting on Him for help, exercising discipline and self control. The Christian journey is 'daily'. You have to keep the fire burning on a daily basis. And You will rise as a fiery warrior!

Prayer; Father, revive my life in the light of your word.
