Kids on Fire

This is not a joke. This is not fiction. This is from “Waves of Glory! A Report and Photos on the Kids on Fire Summer School of Ministry“:

Our anticipation level of what would happen that night on a scale of one to ten was about a fifteen! We were not disappointed as the moving of the Spirit at prayer time the second evening was even more intense than the first. Gold dust began appearing on the hands of the kids for the second night, which was an amazing sign and wonder to all of us, but especially the kids. “It was sweet! (meaning “cool”) one boy testified with a grin.

One little girl went down under the power of God and was pinned to the floor by the Holy Spirit and could not get up for over an hour. The presence of God was so thick in the room one could almost reach out and touch it.

But the toll of such extreme responses to Him physically again literally exhausted everyone. No one complained when we required an hour and a half rest period the next day. I fully understood then why God can only visit His people in limited amounts, because to be in the fullness of His glory would be too much for the human body to endure.
