In the October 2006 issue of the Elijah List, New Mystic Patricia King encourages readers to enthusiastically embrace the Blue Flame. Anyone with even cursory knowledge of the New Age or the occult knows that the “blue flame” is not something a Christian should be embracing. However, let’s look at what she says and then compare it to New Age and Occult.
“For the last number of months, I have had recurring nudges from the Holy Spirit to meditate on the phrase, “The Blue Flame of the Lord.” [There is no such thing in scripture]
The blue flame is the hottest and most intense part of a fire, and the color blue is often a prophetic symbol of divine revelation, God’s love, and an open Heaven Recently while teaching at Glory School in Dudley, England, with Trevor and Sharon Baker, I had a spiritual encounter regarding the Blue Flame of the Lord. In this encounter, I could feel myself soaring like an eagle, looking upward into the sun while in flight. My eyes were fixed on the sun. Eagles (often a Biblical symbol of the prophetic) in the natural have an extra membrane over their eyes that other birds do not have. This allows them to look directly into the sun without damage to their vision. As I gazed into the sun, I could feel myself being drawn towards its center, and that is when I saw it–the Blue Flame. [You flew up like an eagle into the sun and its center was a blue flame?] It was so beautiful. I could feel its strength that is to be feared and respected, [huh? We are to fear and respect the mystical blue flame? What?] and also I felt its passion. [ passionate for the blue flame?] The Lord gave me three points of understanding and application that I would like to share with you.
1. The Blue Flame Speaks of Divine Revelation 2. The Blue Flames Speaks of His Passionate Love 3. The Blue Flame Speaks of the Essence of Heaven [did I mention that THERE IS NO BLUE FLAME IN SCRIPTURE?]
When examining the Scriptures, it appears that blue (found in the sapphire) is a significant color in Heaven. In fact, the pavement under God’s feet is sapphire. Exodus 24:10, “And they saw the God of Israel: and there was under His feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of Heaven in His clearness.” We also find that the foundations of the walls of the Heavenly Jerusalem include sapphire stones (Revelation 21:19).
In the natural, when we look up into the sky, we see “blue.” Blue is the color that symbolizes the Open Heaven. [Following her logic.. there is sapphire in heaven, and the sky is blue and therefore we must all embrace the mystical blue flame]
May we gaze with a renewed focus into the intense fiery love of God. [Fiery love of God?] Let’s prepare ourselves to receive revelation into the deep mysteries of God [there are no deep hidden mysteries of God] and await authentic encounters with the very atmosphere of Heaven. Let’s embrace the Blue Flame and allow Him to burn strong in our hearts. May we truly be known as those He makes to be His ministers–flames of fire (Psalm 104:4). [Embrace the blue flame??? This is openly New Age]
Well now that we have heard Patricia’s version of the Blue Flame, let’s see what the New Agers and occultists have to say.
“I envision this blue flame going out to the world at a very rapid pace. I invite all those who want to help in this project — to help spread this blue flame of energy, this flame of healing out to the world — I invite you all to come now, come and be initiated! Come and let me embrace you personally!” The Blue Ray of Light http://www.sunnyray.org/7rays.htm
“Visualize before you a blue flame. Begin to walk toward this flame; know that it is safe to walk into the flame for it will not harm you. When you are ready, step into the blue flame. Feel your body surrounded by the blue flame. As you stand within the blue flame, begin to allow all your fears to rise to your heart chakra and be released into the blue flame. Allow your heart to surrender the fear to the blue flame. See all your fears being dissolved. Now as your fears are being dissolved, allow the empty space to be filled with Universal Light. Breathe in the White Light of the Universe. Feel it fill your body. Feel it fill your cells until your nerve endings are tingling and alive with the energy of the Universal Light” Releasing Fear with the violet, silver and Blue Flames www.Awakening-Healing.com
Do you see any difference between the New Age descriptions of the Blue Flame and Patricia’s? When our prophesies and doctrines start lining up directly with the New Age then I would say we have a serious problem. Forget the mystical Blue Flame and embrace the word of God which is the only sure word of prophecy.
