Hebrews希伯來書 12:29 ~ for our “God is a consuming fire.”我們的神實在是吞噬的烈火

            This afternoon as I was watching some videos scripts via Facebook, my husband and I heard a lot of sound like "big fire crackers" going off outside our home. At first we taught could be  due to Chinese New Year celebration, some youngsters came back from school playing their firework outside our gate within our neighborhood. This sound go on for almost 15 - 20 min. i got curious and invite my husband to peeped through the window, we got a shock...... there were firing smoke coming from our neighbor opposite backyard bushes. The weather is hot and dry...... We have in fact prayed to our Lord during these few days of celebration..... may God do something to warn the people not to carry away with selfish joy and allow children  or youth playing fireworks in housing areas which can easily caught fire if the fireworks accidentally fly over to neighbors' homes. Even the government has warn the people quite a number of times for past few years either on Muslim Raya Puasa, Thaipusam, even Christmas season. Many do not take heed...... how sad !!!
    今天下午,我正在通過Facebook觀看一些影片劇本,我的丈夫和我聽到很多聲音,如“大爆竹”我們家外面去了。起初,我們教可能是由於中國農曆新年慶祝活動,一些青少年從學校回來自己玩我們的煙花大門外我們小區內。這聲音走了將近15 - 20分鐘。我得到了好奇,並邀請我的丈夫偷看通過這個窗口,我們得到了一個震驚......有被解僱的煙霧從我們對面的鄰居後院灌木叢到來。天氣炎熱乾燥......我們其實祈禱我們的主,在這幾慶祝天.....願神做一些事來警告人們不要帶走自私的快樂,讓孩子或青少年在玩,可以很容易起火房屋區的煙花,如果不慎煙花飛過來給鄰居的家。即使政府已經警告人們相當多的時間過去幾年無論是在穆斯林開齋節Puasa,大寶森節,甚至是聖誕季節。許多人不採取謹慎......多麼可悲!

            Right away, I picked up the phone and called "999" requested the fire station to send emergency rescue to our place.  About 10-15 minutes later the fire was finally under-control after 3 fire-engines being sent.  My husband and I praise and thank God for His goodness and mercy ...... this is happened in physical realm about the Fire...... and the Lord also speak to us on spiritual realm to children of God...... many warnings has been given by God and spoken and warned many time by His prophets, here is what the Lord seem to say during this FIRE consuming incident.  

Hebrews希伯來書 12 : 18-28

The Mountain of Fear and the Mountain of Joy

18You have not come to a mountain that can be touched and that is burning with fire; to darkness, gloom and storm; 19to a trumpet blast or to such a voice speaking words that those who heard it begged that no further word be spoken to them, 20because they could not bear what was commanded: “If even an animal touches the mountain, it must be stoned to death.”c 21The sight was so terrifying that Moses said, “I am trembling with fear.”d
22But you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly,23to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, 24to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.
25See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks. If they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from him who warns us from heaven? 26At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.”e 27The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken—that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain.
28Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, 29for our “God is a consuming fire.”f


18 你們並不是來到了摸得著的山 g燃燒著的火、陰雲、幽暗、風暴、 19 號角的響聲和說話的聲音面前——那些聽見這聲音的人,都懇求不要再向他們說話了, 20 因為他們擔當不了那吩咐他們的話:「即使是野獸觸摸這山,也要用石頭砸死 h。」 i 21 那景象實在可怕,連摩西也說:「我非常害怕戰兢。」 j 22 相反,你們卻是來到了錫安山、永生神的城、天上的耶路撒冷面前;來到了千萬天使的盛會面前; 23 來到了長子們 k的教會面前——他們的名字 l已經登記在天上;來到了神面前——他是萬人的審判者;來到了義人的靈魂面前——他們得以完全; 24 來到了耶穌面前——他是新約的中保;來到了所灑的血面前——這血比亞伯的血所述說的更美好。
25 你們要當心,不要拒絕向你們 m說話的那一位。要知道,那些拒絕了在地上警告他們的,尚且無法逃脫懲罰 n,更何況我們背棄從天上警告我們的那一位呢! 26 那時候,他的聲音震動了大地,但如今他應許說:「我不僅要再一次震動地,而且還要震動天。」 o 27 「再一次」這句話表明了那些能夠被震動的,就如被造之物,都要被挪去,好使那些不能被震動的可以存留。 28 因此,我們既然在領受一個不能被震動的國度,就讓我們懷有感恩的心 p,藉此以虔誠和敬畏,照著神所喜悅的 q來事奉他。 29 要知道,我們的神實在是吞噬的烈火
