BIBLE PASSAGE: Act 2:1-4
1. And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
2. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
3. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
4. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Hebrews 1:7b
Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.

INTRODUCTION: Fire is that which burns. The Pentecostal fire otherwise known as Holy Ghost Fire; is a release of a measure of God’s power on His Children. The churches survived in the face of stiff opposition because of this deposit of God’s power upon their lives

MEMORY VERSE: I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:
Matthew 3:11

TEXT REVIEW: Acts 2:1-4, Hebrews 1:7b
i. You need a secret place where you wait on Him.
ii. The 3 components must be ready for this fire.
iii. God comes down when we wait in His presence when we stay on
iv. Always wait in His presence when we stay on.

LESSON OUTLINE:
Characteristics of Holy Ghost Fire.
1. The Fire is Focused. The only duty of fire is to burn. Consequently, anyone who is to be the Lord’s disciple must be focused.
2. The Fire has integrity. Every child of God, being fire, must be somebody of integrity. Someone whose yes is yes and whose nay is nay.
3. The Fire is solidly reliable. You can rely on the fire to burn in the morning, afternoon, evening, night time, rainy season, dry season or any time. Solidly reliable is this fire, unlike some children of God that are not reliable.
4.The Fire is pure. The fire is pure and simple. You will never find any gimmick with fire.
5. Your Fire is truly hot. When you are on Holy Ghost Fire, you will never be cold nor lukewarm.
6. The Fire is predictable. Fire is not like water. Water may turn up as ice today and as steam tomorrow and the next day as iced water, but fire is fire all the time. It is predictable. God expects all His children to be predictable.
7. The Fire is uncompromising. It is an aggressive, confrontational and uncompromising fire. Whenever fire comes in contact with something, it wants to consume it, (Hebrews 12:29). It wants to change those things to itself. When it comes to holiness, we must not compromise, because nobody can see God without holiness, (Hebrews 12:14).

The Importance of the Fire.
We need the Holy Ghost fire for:
1. Power to witness, and to move mountains. Acts 1:8
2. To be able to keep the commandments of God. John 14:20-21
3. Power to overcome the vices of the devil.
4. And for signs and wonders manifestation. Hebrews 2:4
5. To secure liberty/freedom for the captives. Isaiah 61:1
6. To bring light to darkness.
7. For all round revival.

Rekindling the Fire
Before asking God to rekindle the fire of the Holy Ghost, we must find out what extinguishes the fire, in the first instance, so as to avoid the pitfall of the past:
1. Carelessness. Matt. 26:41,1Kings 1:11-18
2. Comfort. 2 Samuel 11:1-25
3. Overconfidence. 1 Cor 10:12, Mk 14:29-31
4. Outright sin. Isaiah 59:1-2, 1 John 3:8
5. Oil leakage. Matthew 25:8-12, Lk 6:10-12
6. Indulging the flesh. Rom 8:8

SUMMARY: Your fire should at no time go off.

CONCLUSION: It is obvious that the most dangerous thing that can happen to a child of God is to once have the fire burning in him/her and not to have it any more. So not allow the fire to go out. Always keep the fire burning by supplying fuel as at when due. 1 Thess. 5:17
