Jesus explains that the baptism He gives, and will go through, will not cause peace -- it will cause division. His death on the cross will result in fire poured out on Him (i.e. the wrath of God) and is a baptism "by fire" done for believers. In these days, the Holy Spirit convicts us of sin, righteousness and judgment. It is as if we are living in the days of Noah. Judgement is coming for sure and the only safe place on the Last Day will be the "fire break" (burned out area) in the shadow of the Cross. God saves those who seek refuge in His Son. The Lord's Supper is the cross of Jesus made present while we wait for Jesus to return on the Last Day. This is just one of the teachings in this lesson.
Scripture: Luke 12:49-13:21
