2-11-17 ~ Seeking the LORD to Judge, Refine and Purify Me with FIRE for HIS Purposes

Zechariah 13:8-9 ~ “It will come about in all the land,” Declares the LORD, “That two parts in it will be cut off and perish; But the third will be left in it. “And I will bring the third part through the fire, Refine them as silver is refined, And test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, And I will answer them; I will say, They are My people,’ And they will say, ‘The LORD is my God.'”

Psalm 26:2 ~ “Examine me, O Lord, and try me; Test my mind and my heart.”

Daniel 12:10 ~  “Many will be purged, purified and refined, but the wicked will act wickedly; and none of the wicked will understand, but those who have insight will understand.”

Luke 3:16-17 ~ “John answered and said to them all, “As for me, I baptize you with water; but One is coming who is mightier than I, and I am not fit to untie the thong of His sandals; HE WILL BAPTIZE YOU WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT AND FIRE. His winnowing fork is in His hand to thoroughly clear His threshing floor, and to gather the wheat into His barn; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.”

Over the last several days, there has been an increasing desire for holiness and purity before Our Holy and Righteous LORD Yeshua Our Messiah . . Jesus Christ; for Him to judged and refine me with His Holy presence in FIRE. Much better to be tested and tried even further now. . . To go even deeper into the “Refiner’s Fire” now, than to find out at the Judgement Seat of Christ that I did not complete all that I have been called to do because I did not complete the refining process and/or did not fully yield to or obey the leading of the Holy Spirit in ALL areas.

What does the illustration photo of a dusty floor have to do with seeking the “Refiner’s Fire?” It’s this: That is an actual photo of our dining room floor that I cleaned/dusted on Monday, then a quick dusting yesterday (Friday). It looked fine last night. BUT THEN THE LIGHT OF THE DAY HIT THE FLOOR and there it was. . . So dusty I wrote “dusty” on the floor for this message.  

imageLiving 50 feet from a dirt road, means automatically there will be dirt/dust in the house FREQUENTLY.  

It may seem our hearts may be “good” or “in the right place” . . . That we are walking a “clean” life but ONLY the Holy Spirit’s light of truth can show us there is still more dirt (sin) in our life that needs to be cleansed (Jeremiah 17:9-10). The HOLY FIRE of the LORD is needed to burn out that which is unpleasing. . .unholy in HIS sight (Luke 3:16-17). So, just like the light of day hitting the dusty floor and revealing the dust, we also need the HOLY FIRE OF GOD to BURN into ALL areas of our life . . To show us the truth about ALL areas that need to be cleansed. . . To purify us that we may be made vessels of honor to be used for the Heavenly Father’s purpose (2 Timothy 2:21).
