This is Pentecost Sunday. That’s the day the fire fell! It appeared as tongues of flame on the heads of those gathered at the Upper Room. It was a purifying fire. The fire of the Holy Spirit is a cleansing agent. Fire also is a means of torture and punishment. That is best exemplified by the fires of hell. On this Pentecost Sunday we’ll see how the promise of God in Genesis 3 is fulfilled as fire falls down from heaven just prior to the Great White Throne Judgment. The plain fact of the matter is that all who have ever lived must appear before the Judgment Seat of God.
