“Behold, I send My messenger, and he will prepare the way before Me. And the LORD whom you seek will suddenly come to His temple; and the messenger of the covenant in whom you delight, behold, He is coming, says the LORD of hosts.
But who can endure the day of His coming, and who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap. He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and he will purify the sons of Levi and refine them like gold and silver, and they will bring offerings in righteousness to the LORD,” Malachi 3:1-3.
“I AM turning up the heat on my people. For the furnace will be ignited to a higher temperature. A wave is coming, and this wave will overflow into your lives. For the fires will burn away the dross.
The three men in the fiery furnace did not burn up for I was in there with them. But even as I turn up the heat, I will provide a way out of the troubles. For there is a great spiritual wave coming.
Many will come to know Me in even a greater way. For as the “temperature” of these trials is getting stronger, know that my spirit within you will be even stronger yet.
But you will inherit many blessings during these things. For it is at these times that the anointing within you will flow even greater. For as the fires are growing in intensity, the fire from my throne will ignite the inner man.
You see, all of this has a purpose. For it is indeed preparing you for the days ahead. But metal needs to be pliable so that I can heat it with my tools. For I want you to be equipped for the dark days ahead.
They will be unlike any other days you’ve experienced before. For I have stayed my hand for a long time now, for the dam is going to be released soon. For the time of Jacob’s Trouble is soon to befall all of you.
(The Spirit of the LORD showed me a range of angels off to my left side, and then similarly, to the right. Each of these groups of angels were blowing trumpets, as if they were to begin heralding the coming of these things.)
So, I want you to be prepared for them. I want you to be equipped and ready for those days.”
