Warning: No Strange Fires

As a child of God, a church worker, a minister, or even a Pastor, who constantly ministers unto God in any capacity, we are to serve God and minister unto Him in reverence and Holy awe.

It shows the state of our heart and it shows the kind of “fire” you are offering unto the Lord.

In the scriptures, there are two ministers who went to offer or minister unto the Lord, and yet they died.

Lev 16:1 (KJV)  
And the LORD spake unto Moses after the death of the two sons of Aaron, when they offered before the LORD, and died;

What did they offer?

What killed them?

Let’s find out here.

Warning: No Strange Fires

Leviticus 10:1-2   (KJV)
And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the LORD, which he commanded them not. And there went out fire from the LORD, and devoured them, and they died before the LORD.

So the two sons of Aaron died because they offered strange fire unto the Lord.

What is strange fire?

The Amplified Bible calls it strange and UNHOLY fire.

So, we kind of know that this fire is unholy.

I think it is very simple. They ministered by burning incense and making a fire.

An unholy person will simply offer an unholy fire.

An unholy minister cannot minister unto God in a Holy way.

To further clarify, I looked up the word “Strange” in the context of the verse above from the Strong’s Dictionary and this is what I saw:

A primitive root; to turn aside (especially for lodging); hence to be a foreigner, strange, profane; specifically to commit adultery: – (come from) another (man, place), strange (thing, woman).

Take note of the word “lodging,”  “commit adultery.” and “strange woman”

Who are you “lodging” with as a single and yet ministering in the choir, ushering, etc?

Warning: No Strange Fires

I want to challenge you as a child of God, to make up your mind never to offer strange fire unto the Lord.

Sleeping around and yet holding the microphone to minister, sing or preach is offering strange fire unto the Lord.

While you might not have died physically because we are in a dispensation of grace, the reality is that some things may be dying around you.

Opportunities are dying.

Relationship with God is at risk.

Promotions, increase and destinies are dying.

God-ordained courtships are dying.

Eventually, physical death could follow as in the case of Ananias and Sapphira. Acts 5

Decide to do away with any strange fire as a child of God. Stop tempting the devil!

This is what KHC does! To warn!! And then to show you that God still loves you!

God doesn’t want you living a double life, pretending while practically on the way to hell.

He wants you to live well, live long, serve Him, and still make heaven!

Do it God’s way.

Do what God has commanded, not what your flesh is commanding.

Reach out and ask God to help you.

Make up your mind.

Disconnect with all unholy and ungodly alliances.

Stop all sexual sins.

Accept and know you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus and decide to walk in the Spirit so that you will not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

Your relationship is blessed.
