The Refiner’s Fire


“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, Even 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 launderers’ soap”   Malachi 3:1-2, NKJV (emphasis added)

My child, I am blowing on the embers in the souls of My people.  The fire has died down to the point that there is only a glow left.  But this is the season I am blowing upon all who are called by My name: the ones already on fire, the ones who have let their flames grow low, and the lukewarm ones who have foolishly let even the glow almost go out.

As I blow My holy breath on them, it will be like an awakening blast from a refiner’s furnace.  Some will pull back from Me because they prefer the coldness of dead ashes to the fire of My Presence.  Others will be totally amazed as I reveal Myself to them in this manner.  They have never known Me in My glory and power.  But they will gladly run to Me once they realize that the veil has been removed from their eyes.  The ones who have nurtured the flame of My Presence will leap like the deer and rejoice as they experience the fire of My jealous love for them.

I created man to carry My glory and so we are returning to the place of the beginning.  All things will be reconciled and every enemy defeated.  My Bride will bring in the harvest.  Yes, even in the darkest of days, she will reap.  The fire within her will draw the lost.  It will heal them; it will warm them; it will comfort them and reveal My goodness to them.

This fire will destroy the darkness, but it will be a healing to the righteous.  No longer will the mockers have rule over My people.  I am breaking their bands even now.  I release those who are bound by religion and man-made traditions into the freedom of true intimacy with Me.  My Church will arise as the members of My Body burn with My Presence.  I AM HEAD OF MY CHURCH and all leadership flows from Me.

FIRE!  FIRE!  FIRE!  The refining process will bring many sons and daughters to holiness.  They will be the righteous ones who will reap My final harvest.  Do not run from this fire, but embrace it as it burns up all that is hindering you from accessing the higher ground.

Trust Me.  Believe in Me.  Burn with Me so we can finish the work and bring much fruit into the Father’s house . Receive My grace and comfort as My peace fills you now.  Shalom.
