“I AM raising the temperature on the Refining Pots. I AM raising the temperature of My FIRE.
Character formation is everything to Me for those who belong to Me. So many have failed from lack of healing, lack of deliverance.
I AM concerned not just with Salvation, but with healing My People from the pains and sufferings of the past.
I do not work only this way or only that way. I AM a God of great diversity, and I do things the best way I SEE FIT for each person.”
“But He knows the way that I take; When He has tested me, I shall come forth as gold.” Job 23:10 NKJV.
“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 launderers’ soap. He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver; He will purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer to The LORD an offering in righteousness.” Malachi 3:2-3 NKJV.
“I AM descending with FIRE to purge the sons of Levi. I AM purifying my prophets in your midst.
I will not bear with the lying words or pretense any longer leading so many astray from the truth.
I’ve called the prophets to prepare My Bride, and to not prostitute her to other lovers. I will not tolerate Jezebel in the midst of the congregation without consequence any longer.
Just as Jeremiah confronted Hananiah, I will send true prophets into the church to proclaim TRUTH. Those who will not listen to My Words, will come to the same end as Hananiah and Ananias.
Do not refuse My Mercy beloveds. It is My Mercy which has held back judgment in My House.
It is My PATIENCE that has endured that some would be saved. Do not scoff or judge with indignation at those I have called who have failed the test.
Pray that the fullness of judgment will not come upon them, but that they would listen, and humble themselves in the sight of The LORD.
For each day there is an escalation in the plans of the enemy, and I cannot hold back My Hand much longer.
I must pour out My Glory as the day hastens. But My Glory brings judgment, not just titilating power. My Glory SEPARATES darkness from light.”
“Is not My word like fire [that consumes all that cannot endure the test]? says The LORD, and like a hammer that breaks in pieces the rock [of most stubborn resistance]? Therefore behold, I AM against the [false] prophets, says The LORD, [I AM even now descending upon them with punishment, these prophets] who steal My words from one another [imitating the phrases of the true prophets].
Behold, I AM against the prophets, says The LORD, who use their [own deceitful] tongues and
say, Thus says The LORD. Behold, I AM against those who prophesy lying dreams, says The LORD, and tell them and cause My people to err and go astray by their lies and by their vain boasting and recklessness — when I did not send them or command them; nor do they profit these people at all, says The LORD.” Jeremiah 23:29-32 AMP.
“Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. And I gave her time to repent of her sexual immorality, and she did not repent. Indeed I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds. I will kill her children with death, and all the churches shall know that I AM He who searches the minds and hearts. And I will give to each one of you according to your works.” Revelation 2:20-23 NKJV.
“In some cases the error has been to withhold truth to sustain their own kingdoms. Many have
compromised just to be known, just to assure their own incomes.
Many have wandered from the truth, and ended up where they never thought they would go, and now don’t know how to be dependent on ME any longer, for self-sufficient pride has overtaken them.
Do not weary yourselves My beloveds worrying about tomorrow, for what good can come from worry? What can anxiety accomplish?
TRUST in ME with all of your heart, and lean not on your own understanding I said.
LEAN ON ME when you feel disheartened at all the bad news around you.
LEAN ON ME when you see the truth of what is coming.
LEAN ON ME, when you see the signs of turbulence coming.
LEAN ON ME when you get frustrated with those who won’t listen to truth.
LEAN ON ME when your sons and your daughters are still in defiance to ME. I AM ABLE to change them with just a touch!
LEAN ON ME, and receive My peace. For in MY PRESENCE you will find all you need to get you through the days ahead.
Know also that they are to know you by your LOVE for one another. Take care of those who have lost their jobs.
Take care of those who are homeless and in want. Do not neglect caring for other Christians within your communities and churches. SHOW THEM your compassion, not just with words but with action.
Take up offerings for the poor in your houses of worship. What was the tithe for?
Was it not for caring for the poor as well as the learned?
The candlestick that continues to burn with love for the brethren will shine and have continuous oil. That which is uncaring and neglects the poor will be snuffed out.”
“But be doers of the word,
“PREPARE YOURSELF MY BRIDE FOR HABITATION, for COMMUNION! I AM your beloved, and you are Mine! You will know what it is to be overshadowed with My light and to no longer be subject to darkness in your walk.
You WILL KNOW ME more intimately than ever before. I AM taking you higher and you will soar with ME in the heavenlies. You will know the depths of MY LOVE for you as never before. I will carry you on a palanquin My bride into My chamber, and I will fight beside you in the days to come.
We will be inseparable even to the sight of others. Tarry now with ME in the secret place for I long to hold you in My arms separating you from all that hinders.” James 1:22-27 NKJV emphasis added..
