Were we ever “fire” in our flesh, before we became flesh? The answer to this question is “yes”, in a spiritual perspective we are born out of a fire. Almighty God our Creator is a flaming consuming fire. Elohim breathed His breath of fire into Adams’ lungs, and the cold clay body became “hot” with blood, and Adam began to breathe the breath of Life through his body. This proves that we are made “hot” in a spiritual sense from fire known as (esh – אש) in the Hebrew language.
Our blood runs “hot” in our bodies and when we die, we are cold because the breath of fire has left the body. The breath of fire is the Spirit and the Soul of the person that has returned to Almighty God, who is the Creator. We are told to keep our sinful emotions and desires away from evil intent. The flesh lacks the capacity to evoke restraint unless we are connected to our Spirit because the flesh is part of the Soul. The Soul feeds on sinful thoughts that turn into regrets transmitted by demonic parasites from Satan. Fire burns hot according to dictionary descriptions, and it is fiery and very hot to the touch. It will burn or scorch the skin or completely consume a fleshly body. This is why as Christians we must be careful what we say with our “tongues” and what we do with our “bodies”, they can be a blessing or a curse.
With our mouths, we can praise God Almighty, or we can expound profanities from our mouths. The same with the body, if there is sexual prostitution with our bodies then we have sinned against the body. For the body belongs to God, now He cannot be a part of an unholy union that is full of sin. If we are not careful, we can destroy our lives with lies, deceit, and sexual immorality. This is why the Scriptures explicitly say, “Be careful what you say and protect your life. A careless talker destroys himself (Prov 13:3, GNT).”
The Bible gives a great story about three Hebrew men who did walk in a fire. Scripture revealed, “I see four men loosed and walking about in the midst of the fire without harm . . . (Dan 3:25, NIV). The scripture references the Hebrew men who were put in the furnace by Nebuchadnezzar when they did not bow and worship his idol. The three men were Shadrach (Hananiah), Meshach (Mishael) and Abednego (Azariah) who came out of the fire unscathed without the smell of smoke. The fourth man was the Most High God’s Son Messiah Yeshua.
