Judgment, Creation, and Destruction

Have you considered that the process of creation and the process of destruction are the same? Both are the processes of separating light from darkness.

Depending on how you experience that process will determine if you are going through a destruction or a creation. If we engage the Lord and come to him and allow darkness to be separated out of us by our own free will and choice we will experience creation. If we flee God, eventually, in mercy, the light catches up with our darkness and the Lord does not allow us to persist in darkness and we have to confront the light of his existence.

This is also the definition of judgment: when the darkness of who we are is confronted by the light and truth and reality of God. In this sense, seeking a baptism of fire is seeking to have the judgment moved into the present. It is to seek judgment now – and be exposed to the fire of God’s presence.

This judgment is what purifies and cleanses and burns from us everything that is not of him. Seeking the baptism of fire is seeking judgment before the established end of our probation. The process of receiving a baptism of fire is to go through a willing destruction – submitting all that is not of God to him so that it may be removed, healed, or shaken from us.

Thus, the baptism of fire is to simultaneously submit to both the process of creation and destruction. It is to bring oneself into judgment by your own free will and choice. It is to choose to come into the presence of God while in the day of your probation.

    1. The process in theory sounds true. However the instructions to do this would include what exactly? Not sinning isn’t going to be enough, repentance is great always, but still not going to lure the judgment out for us. I believe what you speak of us known as “The Way”. It is mentioned often, but always in an obscure sense. I seek further light and knowledge by speaking at…… if I only knew the correct speech and how to listen better.
