I guess I better explain the (FIRE) (FUEGO) right off the bat. If you check 2 Timothy 1:6
in the English KJV you will notice that it does not actually say FIRE (FUEGO) of the
Gift of God, BUT, In the Spanish KJV it actually does say FIRE(FUEGO) of the Gift of
God. If we go back to the original Greek (NT) text we will find that it also says the
FIRE (FUEGO)of the Gift of God. Maybe that is why there is not much FIRE (FUEGO)
in a lot of the churches today.
Growing up I considered myself Baptist because that is what my family considered
themselves, so when I finally started seeking God, I started out in the Baptist Church.
I never heard them sing it, but I saw a song in the Hymn Book called " Oh LORD,
send the FIRE (FUEGO) just now" and then the next line went "and Baptize everyone".
What has happened to the FIRE? (FUEGO) ?
Actually, nothing has happened to the FIRE (FUEGO) because Gods FIRE (FUEGO)
can not be put out, BUT,we can decide we have better things to do OR we can say that
"since the English KJV translators missed something we don't need it", OR we can take
a little spark like this and open up a bible and check it for ourselves and ask the LORD to
show us how easy it is to compare it to the original Greek text and then refuse to let anyone
tell us that we can not be on FIRE (FUEGO) for God and feel the FIRE (FUEGO) of God.
Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego went through the FIRE (FUEGO) (Daniel 3:20) and to
tell you the truth, when I read my bible it looks to me as if everyone will go through the
FIRE (FUEGO). Hold on now, because if what I am saying is true , running away is NOT
going to help anything. Just like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego you can survive
the FIRE (FUEGO) as long as you have Jesus Christ in the FIRE (FUEGO) with you!
It is hard for me to believe that anyone would not want to experience such an awesome
gift through the mercy and grace of God but Proverbs 30:12 does say that " There is a
generation that are pure in their own eyes and is yet not washed from their own filthiness."
such a washing as this can only take place through the Blood and Grace of Jesus Christ.
Malachi 3:2 "But who may abide the day of His coming? and who shall stand when He
appeareth? For He is like a refiners FIRE (FUEGO), and like fullers soap."
While putting this together I decided to check some other versions in English on the
verse from 2 Timothy 1:6 and found one that compared to the original Greek.
2 Timothy 1:6 (Amplified Bible)
That is why I would remind you to stir up (rekindle the embers of, fan the flame of,
and keep burning) the [gracious] gift of God, [the inner fire] that is in you by means
of the laying on of my hands [a]with those of the elders at your ordination.
