When the fire is almost extinguished in a fireplace, smoldering embers remain. Smoldering embers can be stoked so that you once again have a full roaring fire in the fireplace. You stoke them by adding paper and more wood. You then fan the fire so as to increase the intensity. If there are no embers, you have to begin a new fire. A person's solar plexus (located just above the stomach) can be cold, dark and empty, it can have smoldering embers, it can have small, medium or large flames, or it can be a blazing inferno. If you look deep into your solar plexus in the spiritual realm, you can observe the intensity of the fire. When the solar plexus becomes a blazing inferno, the earth will be under your feet because you will have obeyed God's command to subdue it. Whatever the condition of your solar plexus, there is a methodology for transforming it into a blazing inferno.
Two things are critical to generating a blazing inferno in the solar plexus. First, one must acknowledge that there is absolutely no human methodology for infusing spiritual light into the solar plexus. Only the Holy Spirit of God can light the solar plexus and produce the start of a spiritual fire. The Holy Spirit must be invited into the heart/solar plexus. When someone prays a prayer of invitation, they must believe in and expect to see a transformation in their dark, cold and empty solar plexus. They must know that the Holy Spirit has indeed taken occupancy. The Holy Spirit always will respond and will take occupancy when a person's heart is sufficiently surrendered.
Second, the fire of the Holy Spirit can be stoked and increased in intensity by deliberately and methodically repenting of sin. A heart that is continuously repenting of sin feeds the fire of the Holy Spirit in the same way that wood and paper can feed a natural fire. Repentance must be deliberate, in that you must make a conscious decision not to think, say or do things that have negative spiritual energy, or that you know are anathema to purity and righteousness. If the thought, speech or action is about, or is directed toward someone, a perfect standard for judging its degree of righteousness is to ask whether you would be happy to be the recipient of such thoughts, speech or actions. You can transform your way of being by repenting of every sin and transgression, until the fire in your solar plexus becomes a blazing inferno, roaring and consuming with vengeance for all eternity. And keep it roaring!
