GOD-GIVEN CATCH PHRASES

“HELL There is a fire you cannot put out!”

I’M ASTOUNDED when people take an ordinary phrase and turn it around to help people remember something about their business, phone number, e-mail address, or themselves. I even have my own catchphrase with my phone number.

I believe some catchphrases can be God-inspired, such as those on T-shirts that say “GAP = God Answers Prayer.”

While showing the movie Fireproof at a national fire conference, I asked God, “How do I impact people in the future when the excitement of the release of Fireproof is gone?” I believe he spoke to my heart, saying, “The firefighters we’re trying to reach at these conferences have to realize that ‘There is a fire that you cannot put out—HELL.’ But they can become fireproof.”

Just as in the movie, the fires of hell will always be there, but we have to be able to withstand them when they occur. The only way humans can withstand these fires is by covering ourselves with the “fire-resistant coating” provided when we become a child of God and co-heir with the King, Jesus Christ, the first and greatest “fire rescuer.”

A friend reminded me when we were “God-storming” in the book of Daniel how Jesus performed the first “fire rescue” when He was walking around in the fiery furnace with the three Hebrew men who wouldn’t bow to the king!

He [the king] said, “Look! I see four men walking around in the fire, unbound and unharmed, and the fourth looks like a son of the gods.” (Daniel 3:25)

We reach out to those who are not yet “fireproof.” We reach out to those who keep getting burned by those “fiery darts” because they haven’t put on the whole armor of God to protect their heart from Satan’s’ temptations. I have come up with this catchphrase: “HELL There is a fire you cannot put out!”

You cannot put out the fires of hell, but you can become fireproof. Not by completing the latest and greatest training, not by the protective clothes you wear, not by the number of bugles on your collar, not by your level of education … but only by accepting Jesus as your eternal Rescuer from the fire.

He, Jesus, did the first “fire rescue.” He walked around in the fire and wasn’t burned.

Prayer:

There is a fire I can‘t put out—the fires of hell. But I can share with others who the first Fire Rescuer is and that you are there for all. As I share with others about you, may hearts be open and receptive to your truth.
