Scripture: John 21:15-19
Perhaps a great example of this process is the Apostle Peter. He went through the fire and denied Jesus three times. In John 21, Jesus put him on the hot seat and asked him three times if he really loved Him. Peter got frustrated, but he was being reconfigured in humility and knew it. The arrogance of his past, where he could fight about who had the greatest ministry was suddenly gone. It existed no more. Through the fire of refinement, Peter was reconfigured. Perhaps one of the 444 meanings is that this is the year to complete the preparational fires and see the promise of the Spirit come forth. When reconfiguration takes place, a Spirit of Council is released. Because Peter endured a more intense fire and possibly the greatest reconfiguration, he is the one who stood up and defined the Day of Pentecost and what was really happening. He was able to council the people with the Word of God because the Spirit of Council was released in his life. Let us trust by the end of this year we will see the Spirit of Council springing forth in the church!
