19. A Great Mountain Burning with Fire

Daniel told us that the rock, the Spirit of Christ that hit the image in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, grew into a great mountain that filled the whole earth (Daniel 2:35).

This great mountain was the mountain of the Lord’s house prophesied by Isaiah—the great mountain burning with fire that enters the sea in Revelation 8.

Ezekiel described the Spirit of God as a river that flows through the East and continues to the Dead Sea (Ezekiel 47:8), the previous ground of Christianity. This is the great mountain burning with fire that enters the sea (Revelation 8:8).

Zechariah said the temple of the Lord would be rebuilt “not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit” (Zechariah 4:7-8). The Spirit of Christ in the reformers rebuilt the temple of the Lord.

At the beginning of the twentieth century, many in the West were praying for the holy spirit, but Ezekiel said the glory of God would come from the East (Ezekiel 43:2).

In Revelation 8, we read that the angel took of the prayers of the saints and mixed them with incense (Revelation 8:3).

John said, “The temple of the tabernacle in heaven was opened” (Revelation 15:5).  There was an enlightenment from heaven for the pattern of God’s Church. Then, the angel took of the fire from the altar and threw it to the earth (Revelation 8:5). The angel, of course, was the Spirit of Christ, who always intercedes for the saints, and the fire that He poured out was the same fire that He poured out on the day of Pentecost.

This outpouring of the Spirit of God began the hour of God’s judgment, and seven trumpets (Revelation 8:6) and seven bowls of wrath poured on the lawless, who worship the image of the beast and receive his mark.
