“He will sit as a smelter and purifier of silver, and He will purify the sons of Levi and refine them like gold and silver, so that they may present to the LORD offerings in righteousness,” Malachi 3:3.
“I AM a consuming fire. I burn everything away that is not of Me. I AM in the process of burning the chaff away in your lives. I AM the purifier of the sons of Levi.
I mold and shape My servants into My image. I hammer, and I forge.
For how can metal be shaped if it is not at an extreme heat?
The billows have blown upon the coals. The coals are brightly-colored and hot; and when the time is right, I begin shaping.
Just as a potter would shape different vessels, so I AM shaping you into the vessel of My choice.
The process would seem arduous, but it is needed. You see, there are many reasons and purposes for this.
For I want you to be made ready for the days that are ahead. They will not be easy, and they will be filled with much darkness. But if you are tempered like a fine sword, then you will be skillful in the battle ahead.
And forging after forging, will shape you into the vessel of My making.”
