A Burning Coal


“Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: And he laid it upon my mouth.” Isaiah 6:6

When I was considering what name to use for this website, the name “Burning Coal” came to me in prayer. It seems wonderfully appropriate. If God does not cleanse, then the product of my mouth is filthy indeed. This website includes both refined and unrefined. It is my desire to subject everything here to the hot fire that purifies. The piece most refined is my commentary on Job, “Why Am I Still So Miserable?” which is also available at www.newwinemedia.com under the classic books tab. As happy as I am with it, I don't think I would rank it with true Christian classics. The “Prayer and Intercession” page contains an extensive number of quotes about prayer, as well as my general thoughts. I update the “Prayer and Intercession” page on occasion. WmWW.
