“I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled?” Lk. 12:49
The NKJV says this verse with more clarity. “I came to send fire on the earth, how I wish it were already kindled.” What Jesus is saying is that the fire will be kindled at a later day. What day would that be? The day of Pentecost. That is the day the church received the baptism of the Holy Ghost and FIRE. We are called to be salt and light to this world. How often have you heard you are to be fire? Well, that is what you are to be so let it be kindled, let it burn.
