They stood just inside the walls of the fortress
And looked out upon an endless sea of ice
At first the only sound was of burning torches
But another sound was rising
That of thousands of souls groaning in bitter agony
Trapped just below the surface and awakened by the presence of fire
The sound of the souls crying out for rebirth continued to grow
It became deafening and caused all of the men there
To fall on their knees
They drove their torches into the ground and watched as the ice began to melt away
The enemy’s grasp was broken by the power of fire
And a great multitude of souls were reclaimed from the ice
But there were many others that did not respond
To the presence of fire
They remained frozen
Enslaved in darkness
Forever


Epilogue (6:55)
When the mountains crumble into the sea
When the stars fall from the heavens and scorch the earth
Then every knee will bow before the flame
And every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord
Forever

    General CommentThis is the final section of the Physics of Fire songs. It shows an unsetteling view of those who refused to accept the fire, Jesus, into their life. It shows that Satan will be defeated by the power of Jesus. Unfortunately, there will still be those who will not accept the presence of fire, and will not accept the sacrafice of Jesus Christ in thier life. They will remain frozen in darkness for all of eternety. The epilouge is almost a direct quote from Phillipians 2:11.

    Do you have the fire? We are all born frozen and chained by the bondage of sin. But there is hope, the enemy and the struggles of our lives can be defeated through the power of fire, the love of Jesus. We have a choice, to pick up our torches and to follow Jesus, or to spend an eternity frozen and in darkness forever. Jesus desires to be the fire in your life, burn out of the ice you were born in.
