In the summer of 2019 I learned to release Gods anointing of fire on everything I touched. This would then cause Gods anointing to be transferred to whoever touched that very same item. This stirred something inside me and I started to activate this doctrine into my every day life.
About six months later, I learned about a weapon room in Heaven. Following instruction from my mentor at the time, I asked God to take me there and give me weapons He wanted me to use in spiritual warfare. As I prayed, I saw in a vision, a room with many kinds of weapons. The one that stood out more than the others was a flaming sword of fire. I received it, replacing the sword I already had. My mentor called it an “upgrade!”
Several weeks after I received the flaming sword of fire, I laid down and closed my eyes and saw an angel with fire in his wings and he was fanning me with the flames. Several weeks after that, I was at a prayer meeting and during worship I saw the same angel fanning fire with his wings on everyone while we worshipped. Later while someone was being prayed for, the angel placed both of his wings together and fire streamed out from the tip of his wings and went into the person being prayed for.
In addition, when I pray in The Spirit during my prayer walks, I will sometimes visualize myself holding the Flaming Sword of Fire, pointing it upward. When I do this I also see in The Spirit five angels positioned around me. One is about 20 feet in front of me, taking point. He also has a Flaming Sword of Fire. There is also an angel about 20 feet to my right, one 20 feet to my left, and two other angels spread out behind me, positioned like a 5 pointed star, walking with me as I pray.
As I started to ponder how a Flaming Sword of Fire is to be used. The sword was easy enough, it represents The Sword of The Spirit which is The Word of God. The flaming fire part wasn’t as straight forward. My initial thought was that it represented the cleansing power of God. I have heard many testimonies where people were “slain in the Spirit” and who were out for many hours. They always referred their experience as a Baptism of Fire mentioned by John the Baptizer. I had also seen the angel with fire in his wings fanning both myself and others during worship and healing. But my pursuit on the subject brought me to a slightly different understanding.
The first item in scripture is the flaming sword placed at the entrance of the Garden of Eden. Is was clearly placed there as a means to execute judgement because of what happened in the garden. But how does judgement and cleansing relate? I then found a second witness in the Prophecies of Isaiah, God will execute judgement by fire and sword. Then I found a third witness in Revelation that talks of an Angel who has power over fire who then commands other angels to execute judgement on the wicked of the earth. Then there is the unquenchable fire relating to the ultimate judgement which when read carefully is what John was equating to the Baptism of Fire.
The judgement of sin always requires a price to be paid. The price is suffering (fire) with the end result that our sins are cleansed (burning up the chaff), making us right with God again. The real question is who pays the price? As I meditated on the issue, I came to the realization that judgement can be initiated from one of two sources. It can come from God, or it can come from us as we judge ourselves. If the judgement comes from God then we pay the price. If the judgement comes from ourselves through repentance, then Jesus paid the price on the cross. In this case, the judgement of our sins results in a cleansing action without suffering on our parts. Fire and sword speaks of righteous judgement according to Gods Word and by His Spirit. There Is a fire that consumes and a fire that does not consume.
I perceive that the Flaming Sword of Fire is a weapon, or an anointing, or even a mantle of sorts as a call to Righteousness and Justice. Righteousness based on The Word of God and Justice executed through judgement. Without Righteousness and Justice we cannot truly know Jesus and aspire to become His bride, as it is written:
“I will betroth you to Me forever; Yes, I will betroth you to Me in righteousness and in justice, In lovingkindness and in compassion, And I will betroth you to Me in faithfulness. Then you will know the LORD.Hosea 2:19-20
And elsewhere it is written:
Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.’ (Disobey the Law)Matthew 7:21-23
The Flaming Sword of Fire is a call of repentance to obey The Word of God. For the believer, this results in an immediate cleansing and even healing. For the non believer, the result is a call to judgement. Either way, all sins will in the end will be atoned for through suffering. All unrighteousness will be made righteous through cleansing. The question is, Who pays the price?
Repent! The Kingdom of Heaven is a hand! Praise Yah!
Her priests have done violence to My law and have profaned My holy things; they have made no distinction between the holy and the profane, and they have not taught the difference between the unclean and the clean; and they hide their eyes from My sabbaths, and I am profaned among them.Ezekiel 22:26
He stationed the cherubim and the flaming sword which turned every direction to guard the way to the tree of life.Genesis 3:24
… The LORD will execute judgment by fire and by His sword …Isaiah 66:16
… He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. His winnowing fork is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clear His threshing floor; and He will gather His wheat into the barn, but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.Matthew 3:11-12
Then another angel, the one who has power over fire, came out from the altarRevelation 14:18
… the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.Ephesians 6:17
I will bear the indignation of the LORD Because I have sinned against Him, Until[+] He pleads my case and executes justice for me. He will bring me out to the light, And I will see His righteousness. Then my enemy will see, And shame will cover her who said to me, “Where is the LORD your God?”Micah 7:9-10
