2017, Casting holy fire in Africa - Pastor Kim Yong Doo

During the East African revival meeting of Maasai tribe, I preached about purpose and goal. When we say, “purpose”, it is kind of a vision and dream. You have something that you need to do in the future and it is like a vision, dream and plan. In order to accomplish the purpose what do you need to do? You need to posses a goal. Purpose is a means to accomplishing your goal. You need to plan and decide on carrying out your daily given tasks. You need to continue to plan and decide on carrying out the tasks for the week and year. It is a goal when you are continuously accomplishing your task. Purpose may seem similar but it is different. In order to accomplish the purpose what do you have to do? In the book of Daniel chapter one verse eight said,

“Daniel 1:8 (NLT) But Daniel was determined not to defile himself by eating the food and wine given to them by the king”

When you plan and you are determined and focused, you will not have anything that you will not be able to accomplish. Begin praying as you plan and are determined. Even if you are doing lower level of work or task, you must grant meaning to it. You need to grant meaning as you think, “God is pleased because I am doing this work/task. God is glorified.”

It does not matter if you were born lowly, if you are not educated, if you are a handicap, and even if you are in a difficult circumstance, only if you do the daily given tasks as best as can, God will intervene in your lives without you realizing it. God will then untie/and solve all the twisted and coiled matters in your lives. All of sudden, someone will come into your life to grant you help. When God intervenes, some kind of event will occur. When we pray, our prayer will influence the spiritual realm and influence the natural realm. You as one person is very important. This was the message I’ve preached to the students in Maasai tribe.

On the second day of the holy fire conference, I spoke about Rhema and Logos. Logos is the written Word of God from the book of Genesis to the Book of Revelation. It is like a textbook with knowledge. This is the most standard, basic, and the foundation. The problem with the Logos oriented churches are that they neglect and ignore God’s given good plan, will, meaning, inspiration, impression, gifts and talent. This is the area of Rhema. God has a plan and will in our lives. There are things(or thing) that God desires to accomplish. Through the foundation and basic Word of God, we will learn. Through reading and learning the bible, we will gain knowledge. The more we learn and the more we read, we will feel blessed. But if there is no Rhema, the powerful manifestation of the Holy Spirit will not be displayed. Rhema is revelation, spiritual power, holy gifts, healing, and so on. Rhema is about the spiritual matter. The more you pray, the more God will intervene. People want God to work and manifest for them and this involves Rhema. Although people are waiting for God to manifest in their lives, they are only focused on the Word of God and always Logos oriented. In this way, they will miss the timing of God. Everyone’s timing is different. The timing moves. God grants timing to people. God will continuously grant spiritual timing to everyone. But if they keep on losing and failing to realize their timing with God, that timing and opportunity will be given to someone else.

We need to pray, “Please create timing for me!”

God posses good intentional purpose and plan. Adam and Eve shattered
had the image of God when they had sinned. They became corrupted. There was no way to restore them. Someone had to come. Although God continuously sent prophets in the Old Testament, it did not work. God sent the Word of God which is Logos but it did not work. Word with Rhema did not work. Ultimately, the Son of God had to come and carry out the work. The Son of God personally had to come and show, assure, teach and preach the Word of God. In the end, Jesus had to die on the cross in a brutal way by being wronged and without sin. But His death was not the end. He sent another Person. This Person is the Holy Spirit. It is initially easy to be saved. But when it comes to the content of salvation, it is not going to be easy. In fact, it will be more difficult.

When we speak about salvation, we need to know the duality of salvation. Receiving salvation may be easy but the content of salvation will be difficult. It is like two sides of a coin. It will be great if the seminary school teaches about it. The seminary school teaches and appoint pastors and dispatches them. But most of whom the school dispatches experience failure. I explained this to the students of a Maasai Tribe. When it comes to the will of God, there will be two. One is the fixed will and the other is the flexible will. There are people who believe the Word of God as only having a fixed will. These people believe their fate will turn out in a certain way. They would think they were born in a certain way and therefore, their lives will turn out in certain way and they believe they will die in a certain way. If they will continue to think in such a way, that’s how they will live. The other will of God is called the flexible will. For example, when you read the bible, there was a person with a fatal illness. But he prayed and lived. When the person prayed, Rhema or the spiritual thing had worked unto the person. Depending on a person’s faith, determination, will, and their spiritual level, God will work in various way.

 You have to think, ‘I thought I had possessed faith. But why did I obtain sickness? What should I do now?’

Even though many people read the same Word of God, some people will have the Word penetrate as Rhema. People who have the Word of God penetrating into their hearts as Rhema will be determined.

“I need to change direction. I need to change my thinking and conception, and change my habit and lifestyle. I need to use my free will.”

Due to Peninnah’s harassment, Hannah prayed with confession in the temple of God. She prayed so fervently that Priest Eli thought she was drunk with wine. Hannah expressed her sadness in such a way. It also depends on how much passion a person possesses.

In Kenya, with the Masai tribe, I’ve ministered to many students with holy fire. Some women repented with snot and tears. Some men fell on the floor and began crying. One student was from the Congo. His father was a pastor of a Methodist church but his father was fugitive. Therefore, this student was left all alone. The student played drums and his ability of playing the drums was amazing. There was no instrument he could not play. When we began ministering with holy fire, the girls began manifesting as the evil spirits were exposed. When we ministered to the missionaries and the principle of the school, they began crying and falling. At first, we agreed to spend only one hour for the conference, but the conference ended at twelve midnight. They said that no conference went over ten o’clock evening.

The people in Masai said that they needed rain. They have not seen rain for a long time. But as soon as our holy fire team member began holy dancing, heavy rain began to fall. The Lord gracefully worked. I was preaching about the timing and the Lord worked with rain at the right time.

Jesus had come to this earth with a good motive. Jesus knew that He would have to be crucified and cruelly die. Jesus knew He would have be naked, mocked, whipped and beaten. Jesus knew that this was the only way for us to obtain salvation. It is the same thing with us. We may not want to go and we may not want to do, but someone has to go and do in order for other souls to be saved.

Missionary An Chang Ho who is working as the missionary for the Masai people had first went there twenty six years ago. God has decided His will and plan for each person. People have their own creativity within God’s will and plan. People try to do something but they also make many mistakes, fail and get hurt. But still, within the faith and grace of God which is given to us, we must utilize our mistakes, failure, and hurt as much as possible.

“Utilize it as much as you can!”

We are living in a suffocating world. We may have failed, made mistakes and have hurt but we must continuously move forward. We must continuously express. You must become completely creative, nice and the person who is able to converse with all types of people. You must be a person who endlessly challenges your faith and sacrifice. It is a hard thing to do. There are many gifts given by God. One of the gifts is the uniqueness of a person. God has granted to you some kind of uniqueness, and a peculiar color which you are the only person who owns it. God has made us into a peculiar art piece. Everyone has their own ambience. We all have spiritual ambience such as a blessed ambience. A blessed ambience is created as a person speaks, acts, behave, and make such a facial expression. God has sent us to this earth as He predestined our lives and our existence. God has sent us with a purpose like how Jesus was predestined with a purpose. When God sent us to this earth, God already had intention. We must please God as we find out His intention toward us. We are born on the earth to glorify God with at least one thing in our lives.

The people in the Masai tribe and the students do not posses vision. No matter how good they may have studied from elementary school, middle school and high school, if they are not able to find any job, they will have to go back to their life of no vision. Their homes are made out of cow manure.

Psalm 115:16 (AMPC)  The heavens are the Lord’s heavens, but the earth has He given to the children of men.

This can also be interpreted that the people are responsible for all the things that are occurring on the earth. The matter of household, the matter of church, the matter within your lives, and all the other matters have been granted to us by giving us responsibility. God has given us responsibility.

 “You are responsible for all the things that are occurring on the earth. You are responsible for things that are occurring in your household. You are responsible for things that are occurring in your church.”

God has given responsibility to you.

“All the earth is your allotment. You must manage your allotment. It is your responsibility. Your country, your city, your region, your household and your church, they are all under your responsibility.”

What if this is how the Lord desires, what should we do? Therefore, our mission is big. We must relate certain words in the bible such as, ‘Whoever, whatever, whenever, wherever, however, how much more and etc.’ These words are related to prayer and the power of God. Therefore, if we only properly utilize these words, we can transform all things. God can work through anyone. But, God requires a person to be constant, faithful, and a person who makes peace with everyone. So I preached to the Masai students relating to God’s power, the prayers answered and the promises of God. When I preached, they began to be awaken.

When we give something to God without expectation and when we are not even aware of it, God will always give back things that are much bigger and better. I always think about this. When we think about the will of God, there are fixed will and the other will that has variables. In other words, the second type of will has flexibility. When will God’s will work with variables? This depends on a person’s faith, determination, thinking, and concept. When you are driven to the corner by God, make a determination to pray and fast as you entrust all things to God. Remember, this way, God’s work will manifest. You will not be able to know the reason why God has sent us to this earth, overnight. We easily know our physical birth date. But once we receive God’s grace, we will know why we were born. Why we are sent.  What we will do. What kind of mission we have and why God has chosen us. We will realize it. We will not know about our calling. Why He has chosen us. What kind of work we will carry out and what will please God.

We will live our lives, as we will make many mistakes, failure, and go through many suffering. But even when we make mistakes and fail in some areas, God has to allow it. Permission and tolerance are different. Permission is like allowance.

For example, God will say in such a way when He permits some events, “I will give permission in this area”

Tolerance is like acknowledging something in a certain area. “I know you have made mistakes and failed but do not continue, I am tolerating only up to this far. Do not continuously repeat your mistakes.”

When God tolerates certain limitation, and if you receive it and are determine to start again, you can be renewed.

Numerous servants of God did not enter the promised land such as Moses as he blew up with anger. We need to quickly realize and catch our problems with our nature, grace, holy gifts and with God’s power. We must be very thankful that God tolerates us and continuously gives us opportunities. In our lives, we must give glory to God at least once.

The students from the tribe of Masai began changing. Even after they went back to their homes made of cow dung, they carried out worship and praise in their homes. They began a prayer life in their homes and school dorms. When the evil spirits were exposed, I taught them about it. I am very thankful that I was able to carry out all the necessary teaching and ministering within the the short time and with the grace of God. In the midst of service, the people were touched by the holy fire and they were spiritually touched and renewed. People were visiting heaven and hell in the midst of the service. The evil spirits were exposed and many more things occurred. For all those marvelous things to have occurred, we had to go through faults and reach our limitation going through difficulties. God handles and trains us through such situations. We must be thankful that we are born to a great generation where we have everything. I am thankful that the Lord utilize us to preach the gospel and cast holy fire to the tribe of Masai.

When I was held the revival meeting in Uganda, I had visited heaven. In heaven, after I met Jesus, someone came to welcome me. He was a man from Uganda.

 “Welcome Pastor Kim!”

“Who are you? I have never met you. How do you know me?”

He replied, “You have built and sponsored the Ugandan orphanage. I was muslim at first and as you had ministered, I converted to a christian as I received Jesus as my Lord and Savior. You had asked, ‘Raise your hand if you want to believe in Jesus!’ I raised my hand immediately.”

But after a few years, due to a chronic disease, he had passed away. But this man came to welcome me in heaven.

“Oh pastor Kim, if you had not come and ministered, I could have ended up in hell. Hallelujah, I am very thankful!”

 This Uganda man jumped around and guided us around some areas of heaven.

Every moment of our lives, every hour of our lives, you must realize how important person you are. You must realize that you are living in an important era of time. Therefore, we must not spend every moment of time recklessly. More budget was spent to Masai school building than we originally thought. Next year in May, we will build four more classrooms. They did not have enough desks and chairs, therefore, I gave money and supported them to buy one hundred more desks and chairs for middle school and high school. But the most important things is, all students must receive the power of Holy Spirit and be transformed. What can we do? Ecclesiastes 10:10(AMP) If the axe is dull and he does not sharpen its edge, then he must exert more strength; but wisdom [to sharpen the axe] helps him succeed [with less effort]. We need to always pray, have service, praise, worship and earnestly desire the power of the Holy Spirit through the Word of God. We must make our spiritual weapons sharpened. Whenever we receive a chance, we must cast fire of the Holy Spirit and do the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Then, we will bear abundant fruit. Please remember, Jesus came to us with such a purpose. Based on the good purpose of the Lord, we must be led by the Lord. Please cling onto today’s word and obtain victory.
