John answered and said to them all, “As for me, I baptize you with water; but One is coming who is mightier than I, and I am not fit to untie the thong of His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire (Luke 3:16, NASB).

JENNIFER JOY! I SEE YOU IN A RING OF FIRE! I SEE A HEDGE OF FIRE AROUND YOU! THE RING OF FIRE IS A PLACE THAT GOD HAD YOU IN AND IT IS A WHOLE NEW PLACE OF PROVISION, OF PROTECTION. IT’S GOING TO CHANGE YOUR MIND-SET ABOUT SOMETHING, SOME THINGS IN THAT PLACE, BECAUSE IT IS LIKE A BRANDING, A SIZZLING GOING ON AND GIVING YOU NEW PERSPECTIVE. THERE IS A BAPTISM THAT THE BODY IS ABOUT READY TO COME INTO – IT IS REFINING, HAS TO DO WITH THE SONS OF ZEBEDEE WHEN THEIR MOTHER BROUGHT THEM – AND JESUS ASKED – CAN YOUR SONS INHERIT…. AND HE SAID, “IT IS NOT MINE TO GIVE, BUT ARE YOU WILLING TO BE BAPTIZED WITH THE SAME BAPTISM THAT I WOULD BE BAPTIZED?” AND THEY ARE LIKE, “YEAH, SURE”….BUT MY POINT IS THAT I BELIEVE THAT RING OF FIRE IS A PREPARATION, BUT IT IS ALSO A SETTLING, GOD IS GOING TO SETTLE YOU IN. HE IS GOING TO SETTLE YOU INTO A CERTAIN PLACE OF JUST EVERYTHING – PROVISION, BUT IT IS ABOUT THE BAPTISM OF FIRE THAT’S ABOUT READY TO COME FORTH YOU WILL IMPART THAT ON A LARGE LEVEL AND SO THERE IS JUST A PLACE THAT HE IS CIRCLING YOU ABOUT WITH THIS FIRE. AND IT MEANS MORE THAN I CAN SEE, MORE THAN I KNOW, BUT ALL I KNOW IS THAT IT IS GATHERING AROUND YOU…HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH GEOGRAPHIC AREAS. Mike Danforth, Yakima, Washington, USA
Now on the day that the tabernacle was erected the cloud covered the tabernacle, the tent of the testimony, and in the evening it was like the appearance of fire over the tabernacle, until morning. So it was continuously; the cloud would cover it by day, and the appearance of fire by night (Numbers 9:15-16, NASB).
