Scripture: Luke 4:13,14
In Luke 4:13,14 we are told, “Now when the devil had ended every temptation, he departed from Him until an opportune time. Then Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit to Galilee, and news of Him went out through all the surrounding region. And He taught in their synagogues, being glorified by all.” Verse 15 made it very clear that Jesus, after the fire of consecration, was commissioned. And the fruit that came forth was the spirit of understanding of the Word and everyone acknowledged it. He taught in their synagogue and He was glorified by all. All of them were stunned and amazed at the understanding that He was demonstrating. That is the fruit of the fire of consecration and commissioning. Just like the fire of intimacy and communion releases a Spirit of wisdom, the fire of purification releases the Spirit of the Lord in a parallel anointing. Each fire has a specific measure of Holy Spirit anointing that it releases in our lives. Jesus walked it out and demonstrated the fullness of the Spirit, which is our goal.
