Modern Day Preachers Fire
In 2 Kings 1:10 Elijah said," If I be a man of God, then let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty." Why do you think we never hear our modern-day preachers pray like this?

Elijah was a type and shadow of Christ and men in the new testament are types and shadows of the bride. Christ can bring forth fire and the bride of Christ waits for her husband to bring forth fire to consume her and his enemies. Peter asked the Lord about this and was told he knew not what manner of spirit he was heeding. Many are calling down fire in unawares today not discerning the spirit they speak from.

**And Jesus is very much a man of God.**
To be precise, Earl, Jesus is the God-Man: God Incarnate, not merely a "man of God."

** The modern day preacher's do not pray for the fire to come down and destroy the people, because it's not of the Christ's spirit**
Very good, Elena and John.

I have heard some preachers say that if they are not preaching the truth then God can strike them dead. I'm waiting for it to happen!

The modern day preacher's do not pray for the fire to come down and destroy the people, because it's not of the Christ's spirit. When one city didn't receive Christ, his followers wanted to pray to God and destroy this city by fire. Jesus didn't let them and said, "You do not know of what spirit you are. I didn't come to destroy the people, but to save."

For one thing, Elijah in this passage wasn't praying, but challenging the prophets of Baal.

The Church has orders to teach, baptize, and make disciples. Not to kill people. God is now in the restoration business.
