I always throw away the Mold*
Every human I make is an original, not a single duplicate exists on earth. The most perfect identical twins still differ in a hundred ways. Each piece of clay I start with differs in consistency and texture before it ever makes its first revolution on His potters wheel. My Father carefully and fearfully takes His time forming you in the womb, to make sure your cells have the exact DNA needed to successfully carry out the purpose He is creating you for. His carefully designed you to fit in between several other complimenting DNAs to form a body, that I can be the brains of.
Much of the clay He picks up is hard and very difficult to shape, making necessary to beat, crush, twist, and knead for days before it becomes pliable. Sad to say some clay is never usable and is discarded. Other clay is formed into strong heavy duty pots for the nasty tough jobs. These are very useful but nothing to put on display, but put away in closets when not in use. Then there is the pliable clay that He enjoys working with. Clay that is formed into the finest of dinner ware and colorful vases to be displayed on the kings table for all the hosts of heaven to observe, 2 Timothy 2:20-21.
The clay that remains un-pliable are those that refuse to be cleansed by My blood and are escorted to outer darkness. The closet vessels are washed in My blood, allowing them in My house, but they will serve the vessels of honor for eternity. These vessels live selfish and fleshly lives on earth, serving themselves first, but earth’s fiery trials will cause them run at the last minute completely surrounding in the last hours, Romans 9:17-23. They are saved only by fire at the last minute! “He himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire just in the nick of time!” 1 Corinthians 3:15.
The beautiful vessels of honor are completely surrendered to the potters hand and and are formed to fulfill the potters original intent for creating them. They are kingdom citizens and ambassadors while on earth and rule and reign with Me, occupying the highest places in heaven.
Why not completely surrender so I can make you ruler over many things: and say to you: enter into the joy of your Lord, Matthew 25:23.
