Fire! (Toronto Blessing)


Toronto Blessing terminology

A "trigger word" used in many renewal and revival meetings to "call down" or encourage the Holy Spirit to come and minister to people. Often causes or increases manifestations.

The term is a reference to this Bible passage:

When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.
