“Let The Fire Consume You!”

The morning of May 1, 2019, I felt intense, overwhelming pressure building in the spirit.  It was a struggle to keep my eyes focused on the Lord. But I knew the Holy Spirit wanted me to still myself.

I sat down and began taking slow, deep breaths, as happenings of the previous couple of weeks began swirling and pressing in around me.  Deep pain and agony welled up within my heart. And then suddenly,

The intense pressure took on the form of a dark cloud which I could see surrounding me in the spirit.  The cloud grew, and just as the pressure seemed more than I could bear, the words to a beautiful song came up in my spirit.  Slowly, I began singing ‘I Love You, Lord (see song below).’  I raised my hands to God and began worshiping Him with all my heart. 

As I worshiped Him in song, I was vaguely aware that the dark cloud surrounding me had turned into flames of fire.  The flames began to grow taller, coming closer.  But as I continued singing, the joy and peace of God filled every fiber of my being, and my spirit began to soar.

I closed my eyes, and knew the flames had reached me as I felt a comforting warmth spread throughout my body.  Just then I heard the Lord say,

“Let the fire consume you!”

As my flesh was consumed, my spirit was released, rising high above the flames.

(End of Vision)

I was going through a particularly agonizing situation when this vision was given, but the Lord’s shown that the entire Body of Christ is experiencing the same thing – extreme pressure coming from all directions.

Brethren, God’s saying the pressure most are feeling will soon increase to a level we have never experienced.  This is what’s ahead for the Body of Christ.

First, we are not to be ignorant of the devil’s devices (2 Cor. 2:11).   There’s a particular pressure/weapon which was used against Jesus, that will also be used against His people.

The Lord’s sounding an alarm to the Body of Christ, alerting us to the spirit of slander.

Slander: definition/Google Dictionary –  to slander, make false and damaging statements about (someone), defame, tell lies about, speak ill, libel, smear, tarnish, taint, misrepresent….etc.

The kingdom of darkness is expert in the use of this deadly weapon.  Because of its multi-pronged effect, slander has the ability to impact every area of your life.  It will set fire to your reputation, finances, even your very health.  It surrounds in a 360-degree circle and begins pressing in.

James 3:6 says, “And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity…and sets on fire the course of nature (our life); and it is set on fire of hell.”

Your enemy knows the first response of the flesh is to protect itself. His plan is for this “self-protect” mode to kick in when slander comes against you; that you’ll begin running around doing damage control to extinguish the fire; thinking you can outrun the enemy, counter the lies, save your reputation, family, relationship(s), etc.

If this is your response, you’ll find yourself out from under the protective covering of God, fighting in your own strength.  You’ll be right where the devil wants you – in his territory!

God wants His people to understand that division is taking place. The Dividing Line is being drawn.  We are to be encouraged and not lose heart; for the fire the enemy unleashes upon us for harm, God will use for our good – if we allow it (Gen. 50:20).  The division will be painful, but necessary.

The fire unleashed by these untamed tongues will serve to manifest the condition of individuals, families, churches, and countries.  It will have a purifying effect, separating those of the flesh from those of the Spirit.

Jesus forewarned us of these times (Matt. 10:36), saying even those of our own household would come against us.  But He also gave instructions, along with His perfect example of how we are to handle the lies of the enemy.

Jesus never sought to save His own life, and He said those who do would lose it! (Luke 17:33).  He wasn’t concerned about His reputation or what anyone thought (Phil. 2:7).  When they spewed lies about Him at His trial, He didn’t even open His mouth!!!

Throughout the Word, God says HE is our defender! There’s a time to speak, and a time to be silent.  Jesus said He only said what He heard His Father say, and did what He saw His Father do.

We must follow the example of our Lord. The Holy Spirit will show us when to speak and what to say; or, as I’m being shown, will have us remain silent – and Let the Fire Consume Us!

Saints, please reread the vision shared at the beginning and take before the Lord in prayer.  I pray as we see clouds gathering around us, our eyes will be lifted to Him.  As the flames encircle us, may our songs of praise and worship be a sweet sound in His ear.

Excerpt from ‘I Love You, Lord’ by Tetra

I Love you, Lord

And I lift my voice

To worship You

Oh, my soul, rejoice!

Take joy my King

In what You hear

Let it be a sweet, sweet sound

In Your ear

  1. Dear Precious Diana,

    How grateful I am that you are such a transparent one. We are as you dear Diana, and you are as us in this time of ordained tribulation. As I read your words, Psalm 97: 1-3 came to mind:

    0. “The Lord reigns; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof.
    0. Clouds and darkness are round about Him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of His throne.
    0. A fire goes before him, and burns up his enemies round about.”

    I was recently given the following allegory which I believe goes along with your message to us:

    Ease To Come

    “Liable” bewailed herself- She knew about the blood of Jesus and she knew about the cross and had by faith applied them to her life. “Why? Why?” she cried, “is my name not changed?”

    She stood at attention saluting her commander-in-chief, but when He said: “At ease!”, she was unable to be at ease due to a snake embedded in the nape of her neck.

    “Jesus, Jesus!” she cried. “Let your name do the work! “Rescue me!!”

    A ball of fire came from the heavens and spoke to her: “ I come from the third heaven – Rest can only come when you are consumed by me – It is then that your form can be changed and it is then that you will be “Liable” no more. Open your mouth wide, for your mouth is the entrance of my fire. I will consume you daughter of Zion – the serpent shall have no place in you and you shall be “Glory”. You shall minister my fire purifying everything you touch hereon-in. Yea, it is time for the seraphim of beauty, glory and honor to come forth!”

    “Truly, it’s going to take much fire before we can be “reliable” in every situation speaking not our words, ONLY His, …rendering good for evil, not defending ourselves, …being still, when our souls are clamorous,…not using our reasoning minds subverting the way of simplicity and faith,…not pointing our fingers at others but INSTEAD, having ALL the fruit of the Spirit (the fully developed fruit that has no rotten spots and accompanying flies). Ah, the sevenfold spirit does not come without suffering and MUCH FIRE, eh?… before we can become at ease and “RELIABLE”‼️

    In the fire,

    • Michele,
      Thank you for your awesome contribution to this post! Psalm 97, along with the allegory given, are such confirmation of what the Lord is saying to His people at this time.
      Thank you, dear sister!

  2. Easier to say amen and amen when His Word is sweetly comforting, yet oddly enough, it is comfort, as we are hidden in His Holy Fire. Thank you Father for your love and Diana’s faithful walk with you. v

    • Victoria,
      This is so true! Lord, may we get to the point where it will not matter whether we’re lying beside the still waters, or being engulfed in flames; may our rest and trust be in You!

  3. Just yesterday I was watching Reinharde Bonnke in an interview and he said one time the Holy Spirit fell on a very large crowd except for three people. When he asked God about that, He said those people were “asbestos Christians”….they were fireproof. We don’t want to be fireproof! We want the fire of God to come upon us! Not only for Holy Spirit fire but to destroy the plans of the enemy as all the dross is burned from us!

    • Hope,
      Amen! I used to be one who always ran about attempting to extinguish the flames. But when we allow the fire, all the plans of the enemy backfire upon His own head! The word I often hear from the Lord now is, “Allow it!” I know then I’m to accept whatever it is, and praise Him for what He’s doing in the midst of the storm. And as you and I both know, oftentimes we don’t have clear enough vision to see what it was until after the clouds have passed!
      God bless!

  4. Thanks so much for sharing. Your vision and explanation of it gave me understanding of how the first church was going through martyrdom with songs on their lips when they were set ablaze bound to posts and trees. Lord help us to get closer to You and not to hold on to our life in your name I pray

    • Olga,
      I’m glad you mentioned martyrdom. As the vision ended, I saw that’s how saints since the first century Church through to our day are able to die providing such testimony of the Glory of God. Singing and praising to the very end. We need to prepare our hearts to praise Him no matter our circumstances, whether we’re laughing or crying.
      God bless you, Olga!
