We Need Holy Fire! By William OzanneFrom Herald of His Coming One Saturday afternoon, Christmas Evans, a famous Welsh preacher, was ascending Cader Idris on his way to a preaching engagement. Suddenly, he became convicted of “a cold heart.” The road was lonely, so he dismounted and tethered his horse, and went some distance. He then cast himself before God in agony and self-despair. He confessed his own sins and the sins of the churches under his care. The fountains of the deeps within him were broken up. Tears flowed, followed by the Holy Spirit’s fiery baptism of love and power. This event affected the whole of his subsequent ministry, and a revival broke out which soon spread throughout the whole of Wales. The Christian and the church are powerless without the fire of the Holy Spirit. Destitute of fire, nothing else counts; possessing fire, nothing else really matters. How can we receive the fiery baptism? Where can we find it? By what means can we retain it? These are the most important and urgent questions of our time. One thing is absolutely sure: this spiritual fire comes only with the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit of Fire. God alone sends the fire: it is His Pentecostal gift.
