A Prophetic Vision: The Holy Spirit Ember Attack

by | Mar 8, 2016 | Blogs, Prophetic Fire

It is a vision I have seen numerous times during moments in prayer and worship—individuals and nations encased in fire and the breath of God blowing on each of them, fanning the flame to others.

Not long ago, during a time of worship, the Lord showed me a vision of people as glowing embers, burning coals with no visible flame. These embers were alive and yet underestimated because a raging fire appeared not to consume them. It is tempting to miss the potential of a fire hazard with remaining embers that simply refuse to die because we are looking for the flames.

In this vision, I saw people as burning embers and as the wind of God blew on them, the glow upon them burned brighter and hotter. I then saw flames spreading in the form of small embers blowing off of them and touching those around them, causing those touched to glow and to burn. The fire of the Holy Spirit was spreading from the embers. I started digging into the definition of the ember and, in the process, I found the term that defined what I had seen in the Spirit.

An ember is a glowing hot coal typically made from wood or coal that remains after a fire or even preceding a fire. Embers are able to rekindle a fire appearing to be extinguished, and because of this, they pose a fire hazard. They are said to hold intense heat and can even be as hot as the fire that created them.

Embers play a major role in forest fires, as these embers are typically leaves and such that are lightweight and easily carried by the wind. With the right conditions, these embers can be carried ahead of the fire by the wind, creating spot fires. A phenomenon known as an ember attack is seen during a bushfire, and this is where embers will bombard a house and kindle small fires in the wooden structure.

As soon as I read about the ember attack, I knew that this was what I had seen in the vision, a Holy Spirit ember attack bombarding the body of Christ and those in the path of the bushfire.

Acts 2:2-3 tells us that on the day of Pentecost, the sound of a mighty rushing wind from heaven filled the entire house where the 120 sat and divided tongues of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. It was the perfect atmosphere for a fire to spread on those in attendance, igniting a movement.

The all-consuming fire of God was the origin, and embers carried on the wind of God bombarded these habitations of the Holy Spirit, kindling fires within each of them that burned away the former to make room for the latter. They became burning ones, embers as hot as the fire that created them and hazardous to the kingdom of darkness.

But it didn’t stop with them. As is the nature of fire, it spread to others, and multitudes were lit up for Christ.

I believe we are in an exciting time on the earth right now. There are opportunities all around us to release embers onto a world full of dead coals. Yes, there are much lawlessness and demonic activity abounding, but God is greater than all of that and He is up to something big in the midst of His people. There are spot fires bursting forth all across the globe.

Jesus is branding the hearts of those who will surrender to His will and He is intensifying the glow of those who will lay themselves on the altar of sacrifice. People are finding their place in His fiery gaze. When we press into the things of God, setting others ablaze around us will come naturally as it did for the church in Acts.

To some, it may appear that the fire in the bride has been snuffed out, but look closely and you will see a remnant of embers refusing to be extinguished by a watered down word. The dead coals of religion will never pose a fire hazard. The bride of Christ becomes the perfect flammable material when we are submerged in the anointing, submitted to the wind of God and positioned in the line of His fire.

God is blowing on His people. Fires are being kindled and furnaces of His glory are being stoked. His breath is blowing on embers that have continued to burn, but there is an intensification coming upon these embers to be even more alive and even more menacing to the powers of hell. The fire of God knows no compromise and neither should the body of Christ.

I see people fanning the flame to those around them as they press into the all-consuming fire. I hear the wind of God bellowing and I see embers of His fire blowing off of people, touching those in their path. I see the Meshachs, Shadrachs and Abednegos, those who cannot be consumed and killed by a natural fiery furnace because God’s fire has already engulfed them. Those who will yield to the fire of God will be part of the ember attack that will usher in the next great move of God.

We are God’s hot coals, His fiery stones on His holy mountain, and we were made to burn as hot as His fire. We were made to carry His fire on the wind as His breath blows over the Earth.

Do not be content in keeping the fire to yourself but get in the line of the bushfire God is releasing even now and give yourself over to being a part of the ember attack.
